Glenmore arrest of suspect with ‘too tall’ status

Jennifer Smith

STAFF REPORTER

A six-foot, seven-inch man nicknamed “Too Tall” was arrested in a high-stakes take down in Glenmore last week, allegedly after going to a West Kelowna home and beating up the occupant. Kelowna court records show Darryn Allen Nelson, a 38-year-old Sicamous resident in town last Thursday evening, is now facing three charges in relation to the assault. He is expected in court on Tuesday, April 23, and is charged with assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, all stemming from the West Kelowna incident. Kelowna RCMP spokesman Kris Clark said Nelson is alleged to Darryn Allen Nelson have gone to the West Kelowna residence to speak with an individual inside, only to beat up the person who came to the door. A motive for his actions has not been released. Court documents show Nelson has also breached the terms of court orders based out of Spillimacheen, a small town near the British Columbia/Alberta border between Golden and Invermere. He was apprehended the same evening as a 24-yearold associate was taken in a separate arrest made on Springfield Road. That individual was driving a red Pontiac Grand Am on Springfield near Benvoulin Road, though he was prohibited from driving, and apparently had methamphetamine on him at the time of the arrest. Police say the pair did not commit the assault together and that the second individual was not involved in the West Kelowna incident.

Nine people from the Central Okanagan completed the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, as the prestigious annual race was rocked Monday by explosions near the finish line. As of Monday afternoon, CNN was reporting two people had been killed and 49 injured as the result of two bomb blasts, which were reported to be approximately 20 seconds apart. Among local people competing in the race was Kelowna’s Liza Burgess, 34, who finished the 26.2-mile (42.2 km) run in three hours 21 minutes 45 seconds, well before the explosions. On her Facebook account, Burgess wrote Monday: “I am okay. I got out of Boston as soon as I finished. Good thing my leg worked today otherwise I would have been there at the wrong time.” Liz Borrett, the oldest of the Kelowna contingent at 74, confirmed via Facebook that she

Kelowna politicians, media and former 14 Olympians compete at Track & Field Expo 11 Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Local politicians ditched their suits and ties, media personalities set aside the microphones and former Olympic athletes dusted off their runners for the inaugural Celebrity Pentathlon, held at Apple Bowl Arena Saturday. Seven competitors—including Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan, Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick and 2004 Olympic athlete Malindi Elmore—tested their javelin, shot put, running, jumping and hurdling skills in front of several spectators and Okanagan Athletics Club athletes and coaches. “They were amazing,” said Sharon Hughes-Geekie, OKAC president. “They did really well considering they haven’t trained. If they joined our club, I think they could do amazing things.”

Elmore, a product of the former Kelowna Track and Field Club, was the favourite going into Saturday’s event, and she didn’t disappoint. She earned the fastest times in the 200 metre run and 60 metre low hurdles events to help her claim gold in the pentathlon. “Today was really fun. I think it’s pretty awesome that the (OKAC) put this together to try to increase the exposure of the club,” said Elmore. Elmore, who represented Canada in the 1,500 metre event at the 2004 Olympic Games, said track and field is “one of the best sports to be involved in.” “It’s got an event for every type of athlete and person. “It’s really cool to see so many kids coming through the sport—I’m hoping they have a lot of fun as well as a lot of opportunities offered to them through the sport.”

Cannan surprised many of his fellow competitors by finishing second in the pentathlon, ahead of former Canadian national team athlete and Canadian Olympic team physiotherapist, Greg Redman. “I was looking for the oxygen at the end of the 200 metre run,” joked Cannan. He said track and field is a good option for keeping a healthy lifestyle. “There’s a concern this generation might not live as long as their parents because of obesity,” said Cannan. “This recognizes the importance of people of all ages staying fit…it’s a fun day to support the initiative and the cause.” The Celebrity Pentathlon was part of OKAC’s inaugural Track and Field Expo, which gave visitors the opportunity to watch accomplished athletes demonstrate various track and field

disciplines before getting the chance to try the activities themselves. “We wanted to make sure people are aware of athletics,” said Hughes-Geekie. “Everybody thinks about soccer and hockey when they’re putting their kids into sports. Some adults don’t realize that track and field is really a lifelong sport.” Hughes-Geekie noted some of OKAC’s 131 members are in their 70s and 80s. “We’re always looking for more people, of all ages. We train all ages of athletes here, not just kids. “We produce some amazing athletes…some very exciting people come out of this club. But it’s also a good recreational club as well.” For more information on the Okanagan Athletics Club, visit okac.ca. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Bachelor of fine arts students present their art and live music Students graduating from visual arts at University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus will showcase their fourth-year artwork with a free public gala on Saturday, April 20. The year-end bachelor of fine arts show is one of the region’s premier annual art events.  From painting to performance, a variety of media will be displayed in a vibrant atmosphere together with live music by Joshua Smith, Urbanbirds and Devon Coyote. Fourth-year communications and design student Kirk Chavarie says the show, titled Continuum, is a not-to-be missed event for anybody who loves local art and live music.

“From traditional to contemporary  artwork, this show has it all,” Chavarie said. “Guests at the opening night of Continuum should make sure to dust off their thinking caps and dancing shoes for an unforgettable night out at UBC Okanagan campus.”  The BFA art show is like a rite of passage for graduating student artists, who will be on hand at the gala on Saturday, from 7 to 10 p.m. It’s their chance to show off their research, thesis work, talk about their inspirations and techniques, and display the art they’ve created for final term. UBC’s Okanagan campus Graduation Exhibition has a history

of presenting work from artists who go on to national and international acclaim. Admission is free to the public. Along with the opening night event, this year’s BFA grad exhibit will be open to the public throughout the week of April 17 to 24. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The 2013 show takes place in the Creative and Critical Studies Building (formerly the fine arts/ health building), located on the west side of campus between Research Road and Discovery Avenue. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served at the opening night event.

The face of Kelowna’s downtown waterfront is  going through a transformation. Included in the changes this year will be the addition of a $5.1-million public pier and marina next to Kerry Park, a new Kelowna Yacht Club clubhouse, an expansion of Stuart Park and the completion of the $14-million

Bernard Avenue revitalization  project from The Sails to Richter Street. On Monday, city council heard all about the initial successes of the Downtown Plan it approved last year for the improvement of the downtown core over the next 10 years.

city’s best vino. The Blazers swept the Rockets in four games, meaning Walter Gray is now searching for an appropriate bottle to give his Kamloops counterpart. Prior to the series, Gray said that in the “unlikely” event that the Rockets lost, he would be at a loss himself to choose between local vintages, given the high quality of the many wineries in this area. On Monday, Gray said while he plans to honour the bet he made, he has yet to find the perfect bottle. While he first joked about spending as little as

possible, the mayor quickly reconsidered saying he wants to show the folks in Kamloops just how good the wine is from this area. So he said he plans to spend as much as $25. “But if any local winery wants to come forward to help me out, I’ll accept their offer,” he joked. Gray said he will send the bottle to Kamloops with Coun. Maxine DeHart next month when she goes to the Thompson city for a meeting. “I think it’s something that should be hand delivered,” said Gray. Unlike in previous

years when he has lost similar bets, Gray will be saved the indignity of having to wear a Kamloops Blazer jersey during a public council meeting in Kelowna. That was not part of the bet this year. In the past Gray has

need some new tools in order to do that. Nancy Henderson, director of development services, said the existing stage that was used for last summer’s program is in need of overhauling and electrical upgrades in order to be ready for Music in the Park this summer. “A temporary stage is being recommended at this point in time over a permanent stage,” said Henderson. “Because the park is not heavily used day in and day out, it’s subject to quite a bit of vandalism, which has also contributed to the existing stage’s issues right now.” The plan is to attain a mobile stage that can be assembled prior to an event and then put back into storage afterwards. Along with stage improvements, Henderson said the public showed an appetite for a bike skills park and tiered seating at Memorial Park. Mayor Doug Findlater said he was puzzled why upgrades to the existing skateboard park weren’t on the list. “There’s a lot of really negative comments made in the youth community (and) in the survey, about the skateboard park,” said Findlater. Henderson explained the bike skills park will cost less money than the skateboard park, so it was listed as a short-term priority.

Manhunt suspect charged in the U.S. Vikki Hopes CONTRIBUTOR

Charges have now been laid in the U.S. against a man who was nabbed in Abbotsford after a day-long cross-border manhunt ended on April 3. Nathan John Hall, 35, was named in a grand jury indictment filed last Wednesday in U.S. district

court in Seattle, Wash. He and his co-accused—Jeffrey Laviolette of Surrey, and Kali Henifin and Ryan Lambert of Bellingham—have each been charged with conspiracy to distribute ecstasy, conspiracy to import ecstasy, aiding and abetting the importation of ecstasy, and aiding and abetting the possession of ecstasy with intent to dis-

“We knew these two to be dangerous, prolific offenders…and we knew they were both here in town,” said Clark, noting RCMP were making the best use of the resources needed to execute the arrests by apprehending both individuals in the same evening. The operation took considerable planning as it involved officers from Kelowna and plainclothes officers from Penticton, the use of the helicopter and police dogs. It is not known whether the pair are connected to organized crime, only that they both had outstanding warrants for their arrest and are known to each other, Clark said. Crime Stoppers information indicates the Canada-wide warrant for Nelson’s arrest was issued on Tuesday, April 9. He was said to weigh in at 196 pounds and was considered armed and dangerous. The Penticton man is likely facing new charges, including drive while disqualified and possession of a controlled substance, owing to his arrest circumstances.

Hall and Laviolette, 37, were allegedly walking through a forested area along the U.S. Canada border from Abbotsford into Washington State on April 2 when they were spotted by border agents. Both fled, and Hall allegedly fired gunshots at the agents. Laviolette was apprehended, but Hall got away, launching a manhunt that involved authorities on both sides of the border. He was  arrested early the next morning at an Abbotsford apartment in which Laviolette’s girlfriend was also present. Hall and Laviol-

I went around to get her and there was a huge explosion and then another. People started running.” Speaking from his hotel room, Gerry clearly was upset. “I’m scared.

Prior to the explosion, Kovas says people were visiting back and forth and excited about being at the marathon. “All of the people who got hurt, they are just tourists from all over the world. They were just cheering people on.”

An arraignment hearing, where the accused enter their pleas, is scheduled for Thursday, April 18 in Seattle. Henifin has already entered a not guilty plea, after filing a waiver of arraignment, which was approved, saying she could not afford the costs to travel from Bellingham to the hearing in Seattle. She has three young children, is unemployed, and still owes money on the residence she previously shared with Lambert, according to the waiver documents.

Terrorism isn’t going away

T

wo explosions near the finish line of the famed Boston Marathon seem to indicate that terrorism attacks continue, with large, high-profile events in the United States the favoured targets. As of late Monday, there was no proof that terrorists had planted the two explosions. Two more explosive devices were found near the scene and were detonated by authorities. There were both fatalities and very serious injuries, and the exact death toll won’t be

known right away. Local runners were participants in the marathon but all appear to have avoided being injured. It is almost certain that these attacks were well-planned, and this was no accident. Anyone who pays attention to American culture knows that the Boston Marathon is likely the most prestigious race of its type, and attracts major media attention. This is tailor-made for terrorists, who crave publicity. Their purpose is to scare large numbers of people, bring attention

to themselves and show the United States and other major countries that, no matter how hard they try, they can’t completely stop these types of attacks. Terrorists seek, more than anything else, to disrupt the way of life that most people in North America and Europe and a few other parts of the world enjoy. The Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, of course, were the worst terrorist attacks in living memory— but there have been others, in Bali, London and Mumbai. While many in recent years

have been attributed to AlQaeda, the Oklahoma City bombings on April 19, 1995, were the work of a group of Americans angry at their own government. Canada has also had a number of near-misses. Just recently, it has been learned that two of the extremists who attacked an Algerian gas plant in January were from London, Ont., and two other young men from that city have also been linked to extremism. Terrorism is a sad fact of life in our current history.

Kelowna-Lake Country During elections, MLA Norm Letnick, it could be beevery move is political, but Dix and cause he has more to lose. Letnick were right rebuff the oneLast week, Premier Christy Clark on-one invitations. They are always tried to get NDP leader Adrian Dix a showcase for the challenger and a to agree to debate her one-on-one but chance to take the spotlight off others Dix refused, saying it would not be trying to unseat an incumbent. In fair to exclude the leaders of the other Clark’s case it’s a desperate move to

give her party a bump in the polls. But while Letnick, who is also B.C.’s agriculture minister, is taking the high road with his refusal to go mano-a-mano with James, there could be more at play here. He would be loathed to admit it but the fact is he’s running from the front. Incumbents have an inherent advantage in political races despite the fact they carry a target on their backs. Sure, they carry the can for the party they represent—even more so if that’s the party in power and it’s unpopular—but they are also the one who already has the job. And, in Letnick’s case, the one who easily won the riding with a 5,000-vote cush-

ion four years ago, taking 52 per cent of the vote. Unlike his boss, he’s not playing catchup. Polls have Clark and her party far behind the NDP and Dix knows when it comes to being the next premier of B.C., it’s his race to lose. If Clark loses, she will still be the leader of her party. If Letnick loses, he’s out of politics. In a way, the stakes are bigger for him. James wants to challenge Letnick on the issue of agriculture. As minister, Letnick has not impressed his political foe, with James quoted as saying while he respects Letnick, he questions the MLA’s knowledge of the importance of, and urgency facing, agri-

culture in this province. “We need a minister who not only understands the issues but is willing to fight for the farmer and orchardist,” James says in his best political rhetoric. For his part Letnick says he’s willing to debate James, the NDP’s Mike Nuyens and anyone else who joins the Kelowna-Lake Country race— at upcoming all-candidates debates. So, it seems when it comes to oneon-one debate strategies, what’s good for the goose is not always so good for the gander—at least not among B.C. Liberals.

LETTERS

▼ CRIME PROBLEM

Connection made to population growth

To the editor: Noted economist and philosopher Kenneth Boulding postulated a set of theorems on population growth, the first of which is this: “If the only ultimate check on population is misery, then the population will grow until it is miserable enough to stop its growth.” Having read Sam Cooper’s now (in)famous article: Kelowna’s Image Tarnished, in The Province (Feb. 23, 2013) in which he dealt the city a well-deserved black eye, I’m wondering if the residents of Kelowna are finally miserable enough to act? Cooper’s article suggested that there may be some link between the latest gang-related killings in the Kelowna area and population growth. While some would deny that there is a causal association between population growth and

crime, social scientist Mitchell B. Cohen in The Western Criminology Review (May 2004) states that “population size is, by far and away, the single best predictor of the level of violent and property crime.” There is a three-fold dynamic by which this occurs: 1) growth in population results in greater social interaction, some of which may result in criminal activity; 2) urbanization and population growth weaken informal mechanisms of social control which, in turn, result in more crime and delinquency; and 3) the concentration of relatively large numbers of individuals fosters the creation and expansion of deviant subcultures. Some have also suggested that population growth isn’t so much the problem as it is the way that growth is distributed throughout the community with

low densities or sprawl, as it is disparagingly called, being the culprit. However, researcher Keith Harris in the article An Analysis of the Influence of Population Density (International Journal of Criminal Justice Sciences, July 2006) stated: “By and large, the available evidence increasingly tends to suggest that most types of crime tend to increase in levels of occurrence with increasing population density.” But perhaps most interesting is the relationship between urban density and, specifically, gang-related homicides. David C. Pyrooz in the Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency (Nov. 2012) writes that “densely populated neighbourhoods and cities are conducive to the processes of gang violence” and that “densely populated cities experience higher rates of gang

Tailgaters pose a great danger Criticism posed

To the editor: Why have speed limits? I pick up children from Shannon Lake Elementary School every week day. At least on two of those days each week, I have a driver behind me that tailgates. I drive the posted speed limit at the school and through the playground limit on Shannon Ridge Drive—30 km/h.  The sidewalk runs out

before the playground and children have to walk on the street. I have had children walk out in front of my car. If I hadn’t been driving the speed limit, a child could have been hurt. Yet I have tailgaters honk, give me the finger and pass me. Often, I find a young woman is driving. Do they have to hurt a child before they slow down?

On another morning at 8:15 a.m. on Butt Road, I had a young woman driving a white Expedition tailgate me as I was driving the posted limit and actually pass on a double line. I followed her as she weaved in and out of traffic on Highway 97. She drove into the Tim Hortons drive-thru. Why the need for speed? V. Boudreau, Westbank

WHL refereeing turns fans off

To the editor: Re: The WHL and the Kelowna Rockets. We are no longer able to stand the level of refereeing your league provides and as such have lost our appetite to support your league by buying season tickets. Yes, we are Kelowna fans and kudos to Kamloops for winning the series as they are a great team. But when you have such an important game as Wednesday’s game 4 and the WHL officials call an incredible 12 penalties against Kelowna and only one against Kamloops, it is just a complete disgrace and insult to everyone’s intelligence and the players’ hard work and spirit of competition. In four decades of playing and watching hockey at all levels, we have never ever seen anything like this. We feel badly for the Kelowna players and embarrassed for the Kamloops organization that they had to win a game and series that way. We feel sorry for the local fans who bused up to Kamloops to support the Kelowna team. There are several reasons Kelowna fan attendance is dropping off such as rising costs to support the team and overly expensive food and beverages at Prospera Place, but the inconsistent WHL refereeing is also a big factor for several of us. We pay top dollar to go to these

games and support our team and we expect better. The league needs to stop being so cheap and pay these guys a better wage so they get better quality refs and the officials can dedicate themselves full time to this career. And when games are called as incredibly one-sided as game 4 between Kamloops and Kelowna, the league needs to have the guts to publicly discipline the officials properly so a disgrace like that does not happen again and the fans know you give a damn as we are the ones footing the bills for your league and those officials. Unless we hear someone has been fired or severely disciplined we will look to spend our hard earned dollars elsewhere as we just don’t enjoy the games as much as we used to. We would suggest others might want to voice their opinions as well and email the league like we did. The WHL didn’t respond, which is no surprise, but at least as fans we can’t be fined by the league for speaking out, unlike the players and the teams. I’m joining lots of others in putting away the cheque book and if enough of us do that then maybe all the parties mentioned in this letter will appreciate us a little more.

A tediously long amount of hemming and hawing preceded the mayor and majority of councillors approving this enormous overbuild.  Only city councillors Robert Hobson and Mohini Singh truly represented the public in voting no, unless the size was reduced. Heaven help us with the rest of them.  Following approval came a happy discussion over the 20-odd year build time.  This magically seemed to remove any real concern over the inevitable traffic and population gridlock in this already greatly constricted area—although suggestions seemed to consider cutting routes through established neighbourhoods. Leaves me to ask who is really caring for our city? Joy Lambrick, Kelowna

Youth mental health system called a mess

I

doubt many would describe their teenage years as easy ones. Even for those who do well with it all, the period between youth and adulthood is fraught with potential obstacles. Figuring out our place in the social world, deciding on future plans for education or employment, leaving home and learning to function as an independent adult can be stressful at the best of times. Not to mention the biological changes taking place on top of it all. Teens who are also experiencing a mental illness, have even more hur-

Representative for Children and Youth, B.C. doesn’t even really have a youth mental health system. The report, Still Waiting: First Hand Experi-

ences with Youth Mental Health Services in B.C., describes a confusing, frustrating and jumbled mess that leaves many mentally ill youth falling through the cracks. Long wait lists, lack of communication or coordination between services, poor transition from youth to adult services, lack of accountability and accessibility are some of the issues making it difficult for teens and their families to get appropriate care. I have addressed the problem of wait lists in general for mental health—when it comes to youth, 40 per cent of

physicians identified a wait time of at least six months just for an initial psychiatric assessment. That is simply unacceptable at any age, and particularly at such a critical time in a person’s development. As a result of this difficulty with access, most youth are visiting the ER with their mental health problems and B.C. only has 67 emergency, acute and treatment beds for youth with mental illness. Only six per cent of the Ministry of Children and Family Development’s budget goes toward mental health. When it’s time for an

individual to transition from youth services to adult services, this should be a seamless process requiring little of the individual in order for a continuation of care to occur. Right now, this simply isn’t happening and there seems to be little coordination between the different services. Families who are already experiencing stress are often left to navigate the bureaucracy on their own. This report was based on feedback from hundreds of mental-health practitioners, physicians, parents and youth from across the province. It focused on teens between the ages of 16 and 19. The only recommendation coming out of the report is to create a Minister of State for Youth Mental Health—who would provide leadership and accountability across ministries and services. I think this is a good place to start but wonder what else could be done to make youth mental health services better for our young people. In Kelowna the situation is terrible. There is virtually no communication between the various groups involved, the waiting lists are a joke and patients ending up in hospital are dealt with in a haphazard manner with inadequate assessment and discharge to the community with no follow-up plan. Families are often not adequately informed about assessment results or discharge plans and referring physicians are not included in the assessment or discharge planning. What is needed is local leadership to bring together the various professionals and come up with protocols that result in communication, smooth transition from one treatment resource to another without a wait list and, above all, open and transparent communication with family members. None of this would require a Minister of State for Youth Mental Health unless the local parties are so dysfunctional that a complete reassignment of responsibilities is required.

NEWS ▼ THREE-DAY RIDE

New Okanagan College cycling event connects all four campuses An ambitious and dedicated group of Okanagan College cyclists with a geographic bent have decided to connect the dots between all four campuses with a threeday open ride June 21 and 23 called OC4 Cyclosportif. “This is unlike any other event in the region,” said OC4 Cyclosportif organizer and geography professor Markus Heinrichs. “What we wanted to do was create something that would have all four campuses involved,” he said. “And the community is going to have a chance to learn something about this unique region, visit each campus, get some exercise and enjoy some great gourmet food.” Registration for the event is open to everyone for $100 the first day, and $25 for each additional day. To register, and learn more about OC4 Cyclosportif, visit www.okanagan.bc.ca/OC4. Proceeds from the event will go to create bursaries for the college’s two nursing programs. The idea for the event came through a conversation the Salmon Armbased professor had with his colleague, geography professor Levi Gahman. “We had been riding for a while, and he said why don’t the two of us ride from Vernon to Kelowna,” Heinrichs said. “And then we thought we should ride between the campuses. I guess we got carried away.” It didn’t take long before the entire geography and earth and environmental science department caught wind, and soon maps were being created on Google Earth so cyclists can actually learn about the topography as they tour the region. “Our department chair Gill Green, who is also a cyclist and marathon runner, is putting that all together, and there will be originally written research articles describing geographically significant sites encountered along the ride in a route guide specific for this event,” Heinrichs said. Heinrichs emphasizes this is not a race. Riders can select anyone of the three day’s

events, or the entire OC4 Cyclosportif. They can also choose to simply ride a portion of the course, and still take part. “I can’t imagine anyone training for this,” he said, admitting he himself is a regular triathlete. “But to get the most out of it, cyclists should be able to ride for three to four hours.” The first leg starts in Salmon Arm. It’s the shortest and easiest leg, mostly downhill on back roads to the Vernon campus. The second day, riders will head from Vernon through Lake Country via the scenic orchards in East Kelowna to the Kelowna campus on KLO Road. The final leg, likely the most challenging, includes a welcoming ceremony hosted by the Westbank First Nation as the cyclists make their way from Kelowna through the Westside and down to Penticton, with a brief

jaunt through back roads around Summerland. “There will be a sweep vehicle at the end of each day, and we’ll have aid stations on the way, including one at the college’s aerospace campus near the Kelowna airport,” he said. “Plus, the Canadian Ski Patrol has offered to assist with first aid en route.” Each day will be punctuated with draw prizes and a meal featuring beverages in Vernon

from Okanagan Spirits, in Kelowna from Urban Distilleries, and in Penticton from Maple Leaf Spirits. Along with Heinrichs, Gahman and Gill are part of the event’s large organizing committee that is a who’s who of Okanagan College-based athletes and supporters: Penticton-based geography professor and Fondo rider Todd Redding, economics professor Brad Clements, who organized the 2005 World Cup of Cross-country Skiing, chemistry professor Scott Richardson who has an Ironman under his belt, ultra-marathoner and bachelor of science-nursing professor Monique Powell. “When we started this, I just wanted to ride my bike,” Heinrichs laughed. “But at the end of the day, I’d like people to see how great the college is and associate OC4 Cyclosportif with the best event in the valley.”

vaccinated for a disease, it makes it harder for that disease to spread from person to person. When people stop immunizing, diseases come back and that becomes especially risky for those who may be more vulnerable like young children, seniors, and people with certain medical conditions or compromised immune systems. “This year we saw an increase in cases of whooping cough (pertussis) here in Interior Health and some parts of our province experienced significant outbreaks,” said Dr. Rob Parker, medical health officer with Interior Health. “This is an important reminder that we need to keep our immunization rates high to help prevent outbreaks like this from happening.”    “Vaccines…reduce

The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks.” Factual vaccine information can help people make informed decisions about their health and the health of their families.

Move it or lose it: Five ways to put seniors back in the game improve balance and coordination, and even helps build new neural pathways,” said Peterson, who emphasizes the cognitive importance to her workout programs. “But if you’re rather frail, or just very fearful of falling, you’re less likely to get up and move around.” These activities benefit all seniors, from 55 to 105. Peterson says a fun, social program of games and activities that include exercises specifically designed for seniors helps them address multiple issues, including those that tend to keep seniors sedentary—which only lessens their strength and balance. Last year, her program was independently evaluated from Hawaii’s Department of Heath, which found a statistically significant reduction in falls from seniors—38 per cent. It also won the MindAlert Award from the American Society on Aging. “Seniors of all ages need to continually work

on improving their balance, coordination, strength, vision and cognitive skills,” she said. “When they do, they’re less likely to fall— and more able to enjoy life.” Peterson suggests these moves, which address many different areas of the body: • The cross-crawl: After various light warmups, begin with the basic cross-crawl, which focuses on the fundamentals of balance. March in place, lifting the knees high. At the same time, reach across and touch the lifted knee with the opposite hand or elbow; alternate and keep going.

This can be done sitting, standing or lying down. Once any of these exercises are mastered, Peterson says, participants should continue to challenge themselves. For even greater balance work, and to exercise the vestibular system, close your eyes and count backwards from 100 by threes. “It’s not fun if you’re not conquering a challenge,” she says. •  Forward toe-touch dancer: To improve motor skills, physical coordination and cognition, there are many dance exercises that are appropriate for See Game A18

For North Americans age 65 and older, falling down can be the worst thing to happen to them, according to statistics from the National Council on Aging: • One in three seniors experiences a significant fall each year • Every 18 seconds, a senior is admitted into an emergency room after losing balance and hitting the ground • Every 35 minutes, an elderly person dies from a fall—the leading cause of death for seniors “The projected cost in health-care expenses for 2020 due to fall-related injuries in the United States is $55 billion,” said Karen Peterson, a therapist with multiple certifications, and author of “Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body.” (www.MoveWithBalance.org). Peterson is also the founder and director of Giving Back, a nonprofit organization that grows and spreads programs that support senior health. “It’s important for seniors to keep moving and learning, that’s what helps

to get back as signatories to the provincial Climate Charter. Kelowna received a refund of $217,238, West Kelowna $37,502, the regional district $18,978 and Lake Country: $12,818. Communities that sign the Climate Action Charter and report publicly on their progress toward meeting their climate action goals receive

a “grant” equivalent to 100 per cent of the carbon tax they pay directly. The aim of the program is to help municipalities reduce their carbon emissions. Since the introduction of the carbon tax in 2008, the B.C. government has provided $19 million through the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program. Currently, 95 per cent

of communities in B.C. have signed the Climate Action Charter. The money the municipalities receive goes to help pay for further initiatives that will help reduce them reduce their carbon footprints. In Kelowna, the money is expected to be used for a new, more environmentally friendly “chiller” for the ice surfaces at the Rutland Arena.

Students looking to get a head start on the fall semester, and still leave room for a solid summer job are registering now for the first of two summer sessions at Okanagan College. The compressed sessions, which start in May and again in July, give students a chance to take various arts, business and science programs. The first session runs seven weeks starting May 6, while the second session starts July 2 and runs six weeks through to Aug. 16. “What we have learned over the years is that students who want to get ahead are willing to double-up on their class time for a short period in the summer,” said OC registrar Jane Muskens.

“Some of our summer students want to make sure they have a block of time completely free in the summer to take on work. Others plan on enrolling fulltime in the fall, but they just want to take one course now. Either way, summer sessions can give students a little extra boost, and can even take some of the pressure off come fall.” Students can choose from a variety of courses, ranging from first to third year, including courses in creative writing, macro-economics, business and Canadian government policy, financial accounting, strategic management, first year calculus, and human anatomy.   To learn more about what’s available, see www.okangan.bc.ca/summer.

▼ TIGER WOODS

Statistics tell when our best years have passed us by

L

ike many people, I spent a fair portion of the past weekend following Another Major Golf Tournament That Tiger Didn’t Win (known more widely as the 2013 Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia). It occurred to me that one thing sports does well— depressingly so—is reveal the moment in time when an athlete’s best years have passed on by. Eldrick “Tiger” YOU WORK Woods’ story is well HERE enough known that I won’t rehash it here. It has been punctuated by moments of glory, sorrow, and embarrassment. He may be the world’s Robert most watched and most Smithson intriguing athlete of the last 20 years. Without a doubt, seeing his Nike golf ball drop into the cup on the 16th hole at Augusta in 2005—after the “swoosh” paused for the cameras—is one of the greatest sports recollections of my own life. It may be accurate to say, though, that the primary aspect of ongoing interest in all things Woodsian is whether he will become, incontrovertibly, the greatest golfer of all time. To do that, he must eclipse the record of 18 major tournament wins held by Jack Nicklaus. And, judging by his recent record (in the four majors, at least), that seems less and less likely. Tiger’s major total stands at 14. His last win at the Masters was in 2005, at the British Open in 2006, at the PGAChampionship in 2007 and at the U.S. Open in 2008. In his best five-year span, Woods won six majors. He’s presently closing in on five years without winning any. Surely Nicklaus (without a doubt the most selfaware man in golf) would say that the longer it’s been since your last major win, the less likely it is that you’ll win another. There may be a natural law of the universe buried in there somewhere, but I’m not sure what it is. Woods is presently within a club-length of his 40th birthday and history tends to show that the older an athlete gets, the more likely it is his or her best years are in the past. Well, except for short-cut-takers like Lance Armstrong, Mark McGuire and Ben Johnson that is. Yes, yes Nicklaus won the Masters in 1986 when he was 46. But, how many did he win in the five years prior to, and after, 1986? None. The thing about the major tournaments in golf is that not many guys have won very many. Nicklaus and Woods and fellow American Walter Hagen are the only men who have won 10 or more (another 10 golfers have won five or more). See Smithson A21

Travel agency named employer of the year by regional tourism association Wells Gray Tours was named winner of the Employer of the Year award at the recent annual conference of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. Each year, TOTA recognizes excellence shown by tourism businesses

and organizations within the region by handing out the Tourism Excellence Awards at the annual Thompson Okanagan Tourism Industry Summit. These awards are an exciting opportunity to showcase innovation and excellence with

the tourism industry. The category of Employer of the Year is focused on the implementation of excellent human resources practices, staff retention, company benefits and maintaining both high levels of customer and employee satisfac-

tion. The nomination that was put together by the staff of all five Wells Gray Tours offices (Kamloops, Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon and Victoria) was a complete surprise says founder and owner, Roland Neave.

During his brief acceptance speech, Neave described how Wells Gray Tours started in his parents’ basement running tours only to Wells Gray Park. Forty-one years later, the company travels all over the world to all seven continents.

As much as we don’t like to admit it, the USA is our major trading partner. As such, things that happen in that county and in other countries that we trade with certainly can have an impact on our economy. The major focus of the budget was getting Canadians trained to work in fields that are in high-demand. The budget speaks about the creation of a Canada Job Grant, which should be available sometime in 2014. There are a couple of items that have particular importance to investors and the banking sector. Beginning on Page 140 of the budget document, the budget addresses the financial sector. The 2013 budget will implement changes to limit the

Gabriele Banka use of portfolio insurance and prohibit the use of any government-backed insured mortgage as collateral in securitization vehicles that are not sponsored by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. What that means is that if you purchase a home with less than 20 per cent down, currently the lending institution will need to insure the highratio mortgage. In future, the high-ratio mortgage will need to be approved by CMHC. Budget document pages 144 and 145 attempt to address the possibility that Canada may also experience the failing of its large char-

tered banks. The way that the government intends to address this is by increasing the reserves of capital that a bank needs to have on hand to satisfy those who withdraw funds from the bank. The section also mentions a ‘bail-in’ provision whereby certain bank liabilities could be converted into regulatory capital. However, there are no details as to what these liabilities might be. In addition, banks are still required to self regulate their risk and have a recovery plan in place. On the securities front, the budget proposes a common securities regulator who would be responsible for maintaining the integrity and stability of the financial system, preserving fair, efficient and competitive national capital markets, and preventing and responding to systemic risks, such as those posed by over-

the-counter derivatives (swaps, options, futures, forwards) using a single set of rules. There is a change to the taxation of non-eligible dividends paid out after 2013 in that for the 2014 tax year the gross up of the dividends will be reduced to 18 per cent from the current 25 per cent and the dividend tax credit will be reduced to 13/18 of the gross-up from the current 2/3. This will affect those owner-managed businesses that are currently using a dividend strategy to move income out of their corporations into their shareholders’ hands. It may now become a better strategy to use salary.

Another measure to improve taxes for small business owners is the increase of the capital gains lifetime exemption to $800,000 from the current $750,000 for qualified property, qualified small business shares and qualified farm and fishing property. This will become effective for 2014 and the exemption will be indexed to inflation after that. Those small businesses that use what is termed as ESS (zapper) software to modify sales transactions from their point of sale software will now be facing Canada Revenue Agency monetary penalties which amount to $5,000 for the first offence and $50,000 for any

subsequent offences. The manufacturers of this software will face penalties of $10,000 for the first offence and $100,000 for subsequent offences. The safety deposit deduction will no longer be available as a tax deduction from 2014 onwards. The budget will increase the restricted farming loss limit to $17,500 of deductible farm losses annually which is ($2,500 plus 1/2 of the next $30,000) provided that the taxpayer’s chief source of income is from farming. The 2013 budget is also implementing measures so that CRA can better combat international tax evasion such as inter-

national fund transfers. Beginning in 2015, financial intermediaries will be required to report to the CRA details of any international transfers of more than $10,000. The financial intermediaries are banks, credit unions, trust and loan companies, money service businesses and casinos. The CRA will also pay a reward to individuals when they provide knowledge to CRA of international tax non-compliance that results in a collection of the taxes due.

No other active, full-time professional golfer in the world today has won five majors (Phil Mickelson is the closest, at four). So, in order to eclipse Nicklaus, Woods’ next five years or so needs to be better than Mickelson’s entire career to date. One of the beauties of sports is how statistics let us see and measure and compare and, to some extent, re-live an athlete’s accomplishments. One of the harshest aspects of sports is how statistics isolate the moment when an athlete’s success headed, inexorably, downhill. The severe reality is that, on paper at least, the moment of an athlete’s final victory is coincidentally the moment at which his or her long decline begins. But, that’s something that is typically only visible in hindsight—perhaps Nicklaus knew, on a Sunday afternoon in 1986, that he had just won a major for the final time but I wouldn’t think that’s a common state of awareness. If it’s not bad enough to have your every move—both athletic and personal—scrutinized on a daily basis, ath-

letes also endure the fact that their statistics reveal the stark truth of their career achievements and failings. For instance, Nicklaus won 18 major titles but he also finished either second or third in a major tournament on 28 other occasions. I don’t know if that cements Nicklaus’ status as the greatest golfer ever, or exposes him as having had a hard time closing out a victory (nor do I know if it’s a statistic he celebrates or rues). I do know that most of us living and working in the “real world” should be thankful we don’t have the albatross of published career statistics. Will Tiger Woods ever win another major tournament? I expect so. Will he eclipse Nicklaus’ record of 18 major wins? I’m thinking not. Will he blow by Nicklaus’ record like it once seemed he would and set unassailable, Gretzky-ish marks? Not a chance, unless he starts hanging out with Lance Armstrong real soon.

Ankle joint’s flexibility makes it prone to variety of injuries T he ankle joint is an intricate network of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. It is built for both strength and flexibility, as it needs to bear the weight of our body while also having the flexibility for the various surfaces we walk on. The ankle joint can be prone to various types of injury and pain. Ankle pain may be experienced on the inside

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman or outside of the ankle or along the back where the Achilles tendon connects the muscles in the lower leg to the heel bone. Most ankle pain results from a sprain, which

occurs when the ankle rolls over the foot, causing a ligament to stretch or tear.  Sprains are often sports-related but they can also occur when walking on an uneven surface of from taking a misstep.  Ankle pain can also be caused by injury to any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in the ankle. The most common causes of ankle pain include Achilles tendinitis, sprains, strains, stress

fractures, broken ankle or foot bone, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Any kind of ankle injury will also affect our gait or walking pattern and in a chain reaction, the knee joint, hip joint, SI joint and spine become involved and so ankle pain can have far-reaching consequences. Acupuncture is a great option for problems of the ankle and can effectively treat ankle pain of all

types. All of the leg meridians can have an influence on muskulo-skeletal disorders of the ankle, and because the toes are the starting point of the body’s meridians, if there is an imbalance or obstruction in any meridian, often it will cause symptoms of pain or muscle imbalance in the foot or ankle.  As with other pain or injuries in the body, Chinese medicine usually

diagnoses ankle pain and injury as a blockage or lack of proper circulation of blood and qi-energy in the affected area.  These blockages lead to pain, weakness, and an inability for the ankle to heal properly because it cannot receive the proper nourishment to do so. Acupuncture helps to remove blockages, increase blood circulation and energy, and also resolve any imbalances in the meridians that may be causing a weakness in the ankle and leaving it prone to injury or strain. In the early stages of an injury, acupuncture can help to remove blockages and promote blood flow to the ankle, as well as relieve swelling and pain. With injuries in the middle stage of healing, acupuncture can help al-

leviate swelling and pain in the ankle, and promote healing of the tissues and bones. In later stages of injury, where the ankle has become rigid and weak, acupuncture can help to relax the tendons and remove blockages to regain movement and strength in the ankle. Whether we are dealing with acute or chronic ankle problems, acupuncture can help to boost the body’s healing so that we can regain our health and return to our regular day to day functioning.

Road improvement reminders for the Central Okanagan Three infrastructure projects, valued at about $3.9 million, are slated for roads in the Central Okanagan this year. The three projects are: •An $820,000 contract has been awarded to Emil Anderson Construction to realign and widen 500 metres of Westside Road between Blue Grouse Road and Jenny Creek (about 13 kilometres north of Highway 97 in West Kelowna). This work includes drainage improvements and the installation of a concrete roadside barrier, improving safety on this section of Westside Road. Work began this March and is scheduled to be completed by the end of June. • About 2.3 kilometres of Westside Road will be resurfaced this year, beginning 23 kms north of Highway 97 in West Kelowna at Caesars Landing. This work will provide a safer and smoother road for residents in the area, as well as for tourists on their way to destinations such as La Casa Resort, Lake Okanagan Resort, and Bear Creek Provincial Campground. The project will be tendered this spring with completion anticipated for

this fall. • Shoulder improvements on Highway 97 in West Kelowna and on the Highway 97C on-ramp will improve safety for cyclists.  Highway 97 improvements in West Kelowna will include widening shoulders where possible, resetting catch basins to raise them to road elevation and adjusting the lamp standard locations where required.  The improvements on the Highway 97C onramp will shift the ramp location slightly to add a shoulder for cyclists to travel on, rather than them having to ride in the vehicle lane. The project will be tendered this spring with completion anticipated for this fall. “These road safety improvements are vital to our residents, commercial drivers, and tourists. I’ve always been a strong advocate for transportation safety upgrades in the community, so I am glad to see these projects are moving forward,” said Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart Learn more about transportation projects happening throughout B.C. at www.th.gov.bc.ca/ tranprojectsbc/.

Cloth diaper change world record attempt planned for Kelowna An attempt to break the cloth diaper change world record will take place Saturday at the Laurel Packinghouse, 1304 Ellis St. The world record attempt is being organized by the Tidy Tushees Diaper Service and Tender Tushies. The Great Cloth Diaper Change event serves to raise awareness of cloth diapering and improvements made to that product over the years. The genesis of what will be the third annual Great Cloth Diaper Change started when Tidy Tushees and Tender Tushies joined forces with the nonprofit Real Diaper Association to create this event the weekend before Earth Day. To date there are more than 300 Great Cloth Diaper Change host sites and counting—more than 40 in

Canada and sites in 16 other countries including Chile, Australia, and Switzerland. The combined sites are already on their way to attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously at 127 locations in five countries. To set a new world mark, the Guinness World Record requires each Great Diaper Change site to have a minimum of 25 participants in order to count towards breaking the current world record. Last year in Kelowna, more than 50 babies were changed at the event on the day at the same time. The purpose behind all this is to raise attention to the fact that every year billions of disposable diapers enter landfills where it will take hun-

dreds of years for them to decompose. The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an eye-opening experience for thousands of parents today who choose to use a more planet-friendly alternative or those who deserve to know about their eco-friendly diapering options. It doesn’t hurt that cloth diapering also save cash-strapped families a substantial amount of money, especially during these tough economic times. This event is part of a larger, growing movement. Local participants may contribute $1 (or more) at to assist the nonprofit Real Diaper Association in their efforts to help families across the U.S. and Canada find and use reusable cloth diapers.

PBL champs get split in season openers Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As the defending champs and the team everyone wants to take down, the Okanagan Athletics are well aware wins won’t always come easy during the 2013 B.C. Premier Baseball League season. Factor in the absences of two key players and the A’s roster was stretched to the limit in their season-opening series against the Coquitlam Reds. When all was said and done over the weekend at Elks Stadium, the clubs had split a pair of PBL doubleheaders right down the middle. “The guys aren’t overly happy, we were shortbenched but we still had a chance to win the series,” said A’s head coach Evan Bailey. “On the other hand, there were some positives. Defensively, I thought we played outstanding all weekend, our infield was really good. “A 2-2 start, not what we wanted, but I guess it could have been worse. It’s a long season.” The A’s are without catcher/pitcher Morgan Lofstrom for the first eight

games of the season while he attends Canada’s national junior team camp in Florida. And one of the team’s top starters, James Walker, is expected to miss about a month with an injury. In Walker’s absence, Bailey had to start a pair

of junior-aged pitchers against the Reds. “We have pretty good depth, but not in terms of numbers,” said Bailey. “You lose a couple of key guys and it’s challenge.” On Saturday, in Game 1, A’s bats were silenced by Reds’ starter Curtis

Jared Young earned the win with 4 1/3 innings of work. On Sunday, James Ward drove home a pair of runs for the Athletics in third game of the series in a 6-2 win. Junior hurler Dylan Emmons picked up the win while Will Russell

tossed 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief. In the series finale, with fatigue setting in, runs were easy to come by as Coquitlam held off the A’s 13-12. Ward, Yates, Davis Todosichuk and Cole Laviolette each had two RBIs for Okanagan. The Athletics (2-2), who will play their first 12 games of the regular season at home, will the Victoria Mariners for doubleheaders this Saturday and Sunday.

JUNIOR A’S WIN 3

The Okanagan junior A’s opened the 2013 season on the right foot with three wins in four tries against the White Rock Tritons. On Saturday, in the series opener, Okanagan edged the Tritons 6-5. Marcus Glowacki singled home Parker Friesen with the game-winning run in the seventh inning. In Game 2, Christian Dupas homered, doubled and drove in three runs in an 8-1 win. David Tongue tossed a seven-hit shutout for the A’s.

On Sunday, White Rock assured there would be no sweep with a 6-4 win in the first game of the day. In the series finale, Glowacki went 4-for-5 and scored twice, and Ty Cridland had three hits and two RBIs as the A’s won 10-6. Clay Stephens pitched four innings of scoreless relief for the win. The Athletics return to action this weekend as they host the Victoria junior Mariners for doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday at Edith Gay Park.

KSS Owls dominate on way to Interior 7s rugby title To say the Kelowna Owls dominated on the pitch would be a colossal understatement. KSS didn’t allow a single try in five games on Friday en route to their third straight Interior Sev-

semifinals. In the championship game, Kelowna routed Vernon’s Clarence Fulton Maroons 42-0. The games all featured seven-minute halves and seven players per side.

The Owls—who scored more than 200 points while allowing none at the Interiors— benefitted both from a trip to Britain earlier this spring and from their daily preparation, accord-

ing to their head coach. “We had a good tour (of the United Kingdom) and that, I think, helped us out some,” said KSS head coach Dave Marfleet. “The skill development at our school is

huge, too, both at the junior and senior levels. Decision-making is important and we’ve worked hard on teaching that to the kids,” Marfleet said. KSS will represent the Interior at the B.C. sev-

It’s going to be very hard to replace him.” During his time with the Rockets, Thorburn established himself as not only an important part of the Rockets staff but also as a well-respected member of the Canadian hockey community. He worked at several different Hockey Canada events, including the World Junior Hockey Championship, the Subway Super Series and the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game. He also trains several current and former Kelowna Rockets as well as other players at various levels of professional hockey “I have truly enjoyed my time and experiences with the Kelowna Rockets hockey club,” said Thorburn, a native of Dalhousie, New Brunswick. “It has been a tremendous group of people to work with and they have always treated me as part of the Rockets family. It certainly was a difficult decision for me to move on yet I am excited for the upcoming opportunity.

Fresh off leading his team to a perfect season (41-0-0) and capturing his second straight NCAA women’s ice hockey title, University of Minnesota head coach Brad Frost was in Kelowna over the weekend to evaluate 85 top female midget players, many of whom hope to wear his jersey in the coming years. The College Showcase is hosted by Pursuit of Excellence, a private hockey academy based in Kelowna. Over the course of four days the players had the opportunity to train and compete while under the watchful eyes of some of North America’s most talented and sought-after coaches. The camp was focused on development and includes on- and off-ice practices, games and one-on-one exposure and interaction with top tier coaches.  

Frost was joined by 17 colleagues from renowned programs across Canada and the United States, including: the University of Wisconsin, Ohio State and Boston University, to name a few. “The Showcase offers these young players a really important development opportunity,” said Scott Spencer, head coach of Pursuit of Excellence girls. “They get a feel for what playing at the elite level is like, which will definitely elevate their game. They also gain access to some of the best coaches in women’s hockey. “On the flip side, the coaches get to identify talented players who show incredible promise and make connections with them early on—it’s an important step in their recruitment process.” It was the second an-

nual College Showcase for Pursuit of Excellence. Last year the academy hosted its inaugural showcase and as a result, all four of Pursuit of Excellence’s graduating players have made commitments to NCAA women’s ice hockey teams, evidence that early connections provide value to the process and the players, said Spencer. “It’s a win-win for everyone involved,” he said. “Giving them the chance to demonstrate their skills and abilities and providing them with access to the calibre of coaches we have brought in this year will make a big difference in their future and in their development.” For more information about Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy, visit: www.pursuitofexcellencegirls.com

SCOTT, JOAN ELEANOR 1929 ~ 2013 Sadly we advise of the passing Joan Eleanor Scott at the age of 84 on Thursday April 11th at The Village at Smith Creek, Westbank where she resided since the passing of her husband Nelson. Joan will be greatly missed by her son and daughter-in-law Alan and Valerie and her grandchildren Adam and Amy. Joan’s gentle love and kindness will be lovingly remembered by her nieces Donna, Diane, Dayle, Brenda, Janet, Nancy and Linda, sister-in-law Lorraine along with her many grand nieces, grand nephews and friends. Joan passed peacefully with her dear friend Colette by her side listening to her favorite hymn ‘How Great Though Art’.

Hi everyone, my name is Piper! I came to the shelter with my ‘brother’ Amos and am now waiting to be your next best addition to the family. I am very sweet and would love the chance to be your best friend. I would do best if I have someone to bond with as I like routine. Due to my BCSPCA and Power104 104 Charity GolfGolf Tournament SPCA and Power Charity Tournament ‘somewhat’ shy nature a home with no young children would suit me presented by Edgecombe Builders presented by best. If you would like to meet me, BCSPCA and Power 104 Charity Golf Tournament please ask Staff for an introduction.

ADULT DOMESTIC LONG HAIR CROSS SPAYED FEMALE

I came to the shelter in hopes of finding a forever home with a loving, social family. I have been with one owner my entire life (I came from the Vernon SPCA when I was a kitten) and I love to show my adoration! I have never been outdoors and would prefer an indoor only lifestyle as a luxurious lap cat. I love to be groomed and fussed over, in fact I do better with the attention! If you would like to meet me, please ask Staff for an introduction.

PUPPY BORDER COLLIE CROSS SPAYED FEMALE

Layla is a young, playful, happy-go-lucky girl! She is a very smart dog who knows quiet a few commands such as “Sit”, “Lay Down”, “Roll Over”, “Stay”, and “Down”. She loves her walks, playing fetch in the backyard and is very skilled when it comes to catching a frisbee! She has lived with young children and is excellent with them. We believe she would be best suited to a home where she has a canine friend or an energetic/ active household. She is true to her breed in that she is very intelligent and needs to be active both mentally and physically. If you are interested in Layla, please speak with our Kelowna SPCA Dog Kennel Staff. She can’t wait to meet you!

Hi there! My name is Dottie and I was found as a stray. I am a sweetheart! I love to interact and would like nothing more than to be your best friend. A family who is calm, quiet and low-key would suit me best as I came to the shelter a little shy, but have proven that it doesn’t take much to bloom! I like laps, pets, and kissy noises! If you would like a ‘cuddle’ companion look no further! I would love the opportunity to be in your heart and home. Please ask Staff for an introduction, you won’t be disappointed!

Hi there, my name is Gizmo and I came to the shelter to find my forever family! I am very particular about my interests... I like catnip, toys and long naps in the sun. I am a Siamese cross so if you know and like your Siamese, I would be a wonderful addition to your family. I would do best in a home with adult oriented people as I tend to dislike the commotion children can create. A quiet home with a calm, quiet family would suit me best. If you would like to meet me, please ask Staff for an introduction. I cannot wait to woo you with my mesmerizing personality!

He is good with children of all ages, loves car rides and is good with other dogs. He is gentle, playful and friendly - an all around super dog. He also loves his food… which is evident by his few extra pounds! But with regular walking, he should quickly slim down. Bailey is quickly becoming a favorite of both staff and volunteers alike. He knows who to “Shake a Paw” and is just an all around love-bug.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen The Salt Book My first thought when confronted with a book about salt was that this was not a great choice for anyone trying to reduce their salt intake overall—but it’s quite the opposite. As the authors explain, the worst of our ‘invisible’ salt comes from processed foods, which we should be wary of, instead concentrating on preparing our foods from scratch. That way, we can choose not only how much, but what kind of salt we add to them. This book is a virtual encyclopedia of information about the wide variety of salts available to use and how to make flavoured salts, including smoked salts easily, at home—as well as how to make your own salt from ocean water. Published by Whitecap Books, The Salt Book: your guide to salting wisely and well, with recipes, was written by Fritz Gubler and David Glynn who concentrate on informing their readers about the best ways to enjoy salt, without just shaking table salt all over everything. They explain that salt is an essential ingredient in cooking, livening up flavours and making some foods just plain palatable. You’ll find information on how to salt, when to salt, which salt to use, why we need to use salt, salt trends, salt facts, salt recipes and more. By the way, there’s a national Slow Food Conference in Osoyoos Apr. 25 to 28, hosted by the Slow Food Thompson Okanagan Convivium. For details and to become a member, go to: www.slowfood.com/joinus/ membership/canada There are also tickets available for some of the dinners for non-members. Visit Facebook at: slow food Thompson Okanagan for details, or www.watermarkbeachresort.com or call 1-888-755-3480 for tickets. Immediately following, but in Kelowna there’s another conference featuring food, so if you’re interested in writing about food and wine, or are already a food writer, you’ll be interested in the Okanagan Food and Wine Writers Workshop, Apr. 28 to May 1 at the Grand Okanagan Resort. Events range from a focus on writing to actually enjoying great food and wine with lots of experienced speakers and great field trips. For details, go to: www.okanaganfoodandwinewritersworkshop.com For seasonal recipes for local foods, pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, at local bookstores and wine shops.

Tapenade

Tapenade is a classic Mediterranean dish that generally starts with a base of olives, anchovies and capers, with garlic and herbs. Keep it a bit chunky and spread it on toasted slices of a baguette, paired with a glass of a crisp rose such as that from Quails Gate or Haywire; or an austere red such as Sandhill’s Sangiovese or Mission Hill’s Five Vineyard’s Cabernet Sauvignon. I had some issues translating the terms of this recipe into easy kitchen parlance, like a tin of black olives instead of 200 g or 7 oz.; or a couple of spoonfuls of drained capers instead of 50 g or 1 3/4 oz. I mean, huh? I don’t normally weigh small

Salted Caramel Macarons

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

The meringue should be firm but not too firm. Salt with dark chocolate or caramel is a match made in heaven, as you’ll see if you try these.

MACARONS:

amounts of dry ingredients, but perhaps in Australia they do. 200 g (7 oz.) black olives, stoned 10 anchovy fillets 50 g (1 3/4 oz.) capers 2 cloves of garlic 25 g (7/8 oz.) fresh basil sprigs of fresh thyme Rinse both the anchovies and the capers if they have been preserved in salt, and put all the ingredients in a food processor. Blend briefly; the tapenade should have a grainy texture, being neither too chunky, nor blended to a puree. Serves 4-8 as an appetizer.

500 g (1 1/8 lb.) ground almonds 900 g (2 lb.) icing sugar 440 g (15 1/2 oz. ) egg white 120 g ( 4 1/4 oz.) sugar fleur de sel

Sieve the ground almonds and icing sugar into a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites at high speed until you see a line made by the whisk going round. Add the sugar while the mixer is at medium speed and beat until the meringue is stiff. Fold the meringue into the dry ingredients: do not overfold it. Pipe the mixture onto a silicone mat or an oiled baking tray— they should be about an inch in diameter. If the mixture is too thick, you will see a tip sticking up from the balls: give the tray a small tap to ensure a nice smooth surface. Leave the piped macarons out for 30 minutes so that a skin can form. Bake them at 320 F in a convection oven about 14-16 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle

each with fleur de sel and leave to cool on a wire rack.

CARAMEL:

200 g (7 oz.) sugar 1 vanilla pod, split 200 g (7 oz.) cream 140 g (5 oz.) unsalted butter, chilled 3/4 tsp. (5 oz.) fleur de sel

Cook the sugar in a large, heavy pot, stirring all the time, until it is an even caramel. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add both to the caramel. Warm the cream, then add a little at a time: be careful as it may splatter. Add the fleur de sel. Stir thoroughly, then cool the mixture to just over blood heat. Cut the chilled butter into cubes and stir in one at a time using an immersion blender. Blend until the caramel is smooth and glossy. Cover the surface of the caramel with cling film to prevent a skin from forming and chill in the refrigerator until needed. When the macarons and the caramel have cooled completely, sandwich two macarons together with a little caramel and leave to set. This basic macaron recipe can be adapted to any flavour you like: some will benefit from the addition of salt and some will not.

Study finds yoga helps to relieve anxiety levels A recent article in the Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine reported on a study put in place to help determine if the changes in mood, anxiety and GABA levels are specific to yoga or related to physical activity. Yoga and exercise have beneficial effects on mood and anxiety. The practice of yoga postures is associated with increased brain GABA levels. GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It plays a role in regulating neuronal excitability. GABA levels are found to be reduced in mood and anxiety disorders. In this study, healthy subjects with no significant medical/psychiatric disorders were randomized to yoga or a metabolically matched walking intervention for 60 minutes, three times a week for 12 weeks. Mood and anxiety scales were taken at weeks 0, 4, 8, 12 and before each a magnetic spectroscopy exam was performed to measure GABA levels. The yoga subjects reported greater improvement in mood and greater decreases in anxiety than the walking group. There were positive correlations between improved mood and decreased anxiety and thalamic (GABA) levels. The yoga study group had positive correlations between changes in mood scales and changes in GABA levels. The 12-week yoga intervention was associated with greater improvements in mood and anxiety than a metabolically matched walking exercise. “This was actually the first study to demonstrate that increased thalamic GABA levels are associated with improved mood and decreased anxiety,” said Kelowna chiropractor Dr. James Whillans. “And it was also the first time that a behavioural intervention has been associated with a possible correlation between acute increases in thalamic GABA levels and improvements in mood and anxiety scales.” Reduced activity in GABA systems has been found in mood disorders,

anxiety disorders and epilepsy. He said there is a large body of research on the beneficial effects of exercise on depression and anxiety. The results of exercise as a treatment for mild to moderate depression compare favourably to psychotherapy and pharmacologic intervention, as well as walking as an anxiety intervention method. “The possible role of GABA in mediating the beneficial effects of yoga on mood and anxiety warrants further study,” said Whillans.

“LeafSource Stopped Pain Within Days!” “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone - as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.”

Why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70-80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems—often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through the aging process. With joint inflammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive antiinflammatory drugs that cause many more problems than they solve. It is safe to take up to six per day with absolutely no side-effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction of inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily.

This product get results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. But it’s what LeafSource users are saying that truly demonstrates the products effectiveness: I have had cronic pain for over 15 years and have been going to a chiropractor monthly for pain therapy. I started using LeafSource two months ago and I am amazed at the results. I no longer have tendinitis, carple tunnel or irritable bowel. My arthritis is manageable, all my joints are limber and I’m able to exercise again. My energy levels are up, my nails and hair are stronger and my skin is softer. ~ Debbie

I am pretty stunned what this has done for me in 8 days of taking LeafSource. For 18 years I have tried many many products ...most of them expensive. And most did not work at all. I had been on a mission to find a product that is doing exactly what LeafSource is doing.So here I am on day 9 with 90% of my pain gone. ~ N. W. - Toronto

Green thumb advice

B���� G������ EDITOR

When Don Burnett was a kid growing up in Kelowna, he remembers everyone having a garden. Growing vegetables in your back yard was the norm, and it wasn’t out of place for people to have a chicken coop on their property as well. “My parents had a vegetable garden, but the generation after that seemed to get away from it,” recalls Burnett. For his parents to have a garden was no surprise given that the Burnetts ran a gardening centre for many years in the city as Don was growing up. Today, Burnett has become of Kelowna’s gardening experts, hosting his own radio show on 1150 every Saturday morning, writing a regular column for the Capital News and running his own home and garden consulting business. Burnett says he can sense a movement among homeowners today to get back to what their parents and grandparents did - start their own vegetable garden. But Burnett says many people are gung-ho on the idea every spring, but then get overwhelmed by how and where to start. Their enthusiasm to grow their own produce turns to frustration because they’re too ambitious off the start, and don’t realize how much work is involved in tending a vegetable garden. “A couple of things I always tell people who are trying to grow a garden for the first time, don’t grow any more garden than your wife can look after, and don’t go to a garden centre hungry—as you go to the seed section in a gardening store and buy every vegetable seed in front of you,” Burnett says, echoing the old axiom that you never go shopping for groceries when you are hungry because you will always buy more food than you want or need. One of the initial discouragements in growing a vegetable garden is if you don’t understand the soil you have to

work with. “You will be flogging a dead horse if your have a clay soil base or if there is gravel rock in your soil. You’re going to have a difficult time of it.” “You end up with a patch of weeds rather than vegetables and in frustration you just say to hell with it.” “Make sure you are planting in soil that you can dig into and break up and there is good drainage.” He says Glenmore is infamous for its clay soil base but there are ways, he says, to break up the clay such as using gypsium or organic material that will make the soil more plyable for vegetable growing. “The Okanagan is a great place to grow vegetables, but the thing to remember is vegetable plants love the sunshine, so any southern exposure is the best. The more sun the better.” While Burnett says just about any vegetable can grow in the Okanagan climate, he suggests starting out on a small scale, to build up your growing success and knowledge. “Start with a small plot, say a 20 by 20 plot so you won’t try to grow too many things at once off the start. Don’t go hogwild right off the bat. Plant some tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, lettuce, cabbage…and few of each,” he suggests. And Burnett also notes it might be easier off the start to buy plants that can be transplanted in your garden. “It costs most to buy a starter plant rather than seeds but again it’s a good way to start.” While tomatoes usually don’t get planted until the May long weekend, Burnett says some vegetables such as peas, which he starts planting in February, and carrots can thrive in the ground during winter, if protected by a covering of mulch. Burnett says gardeners might also want to consider another past generation concept, a cold storage room or root cellar for your vegetables during the winter.

JUST ABOUT ANY VEGETABLE CAN GROW IN THE OKANAGAN “We have a lot of local vegetables grown here in the winter and you like to support local producers, so I always suggest growing vegetables that you can store and eat over the winter when the local growers are shut down,” Burnett says. “It’s old school theory for preserving vegetables, but if you build a storage room under a deck or under the stairway of your deck, insulated with a light bulb you can turn on when the temperature goes below -25 Celsius to keep the frost out, then you can eat your own vegetables throughout the winter.” Burnett says gardening is a lot of fun, a recreational pursuit that is both relaxing and invigorating to the point where people can get hooked on it. “There is no better feeling than having a barbecue in the summer and the only thing you didn’t produce yourself is the beef. Many people now even make their own wine to go with the meal,” he says. One other tip Burnett offers newby vegetable growers is to take advantage of opportunities that come your way to talk with oldtimers who have been growing a garden in the Okanagan for most of their lives. “They are the people who have lived all through the different experiences of gardening here and they have a wealth of knowledge in their heads.”

Deck with a view Falcon Railing and Superdeck Inc. manufactures, supplies and installs many styles of aluminum and a combination of aluminum and glass railing systems. Operated for nine years in Kelowna on Fitzpatrick Road under the ownership of partners Don Haines, Don Olsvik and Brad Grittner, what separates Falcon from the other manufacturers is their patented 10mm glass railing system posts.

Topless glass railings are becoming the standard for homes with views from their sundecks. The topless glass railing is simply a guardrail with no top rail to obstruct your view while you’re sitting in a chair on your deck. Say goodbye to that intrusive top railing in your line of sight. This revolutionary, patented system eliminates

both the top and the bottom railings quickly, easily and cost effectively, giving you a million dollar view solution. The patent is in the unique designer posts which contain a rotating gasket for the installation of 10mm thick glass. The Topless Glass System works with any deck shape. The unique design of the channels in this system allow the corner posts to accommodate angles from 45 to 135 degrees, and the inline covers all the rest. These posts are stocked in three popular colours—black, white and oyster grey. Other customized colours are available on request. This Falcon railing system is engineered to meet or exceed the Building Codes of Canada, the United States, and the International Building Code (IBC) when installed to their specifications, and has been widely accepted and promoted by a growing network of dealers across Canada and the U.S. In addition to the great lineup of aluminum railing products, Falcon also supplies and installs a variety of vinyl deck coverings, including the Super Floor System which is beautiful and durable, usable both indoors and outdoors.

Bring out the beauty of wood The look you want for doors, windows, shutters, moldings, fences, and decks can be achieved by applying the right colour and type of stain in an attractive combination.

Q: I want the natural wood grain to come through on my front door, but not on the shutters, so how do I vary the stains to achieve that look?a A: You can get at least four different looks depending upon the stain you choose. A clear stain will allow the wood to weather gray naturally. A toner stain delivers a slight hint of colour as it maintains the natural beauty of wood. A semi-transparent stain applies subtle colour that still allows the wood grain and texture to show. A solid stain is a rich opaque covering that also allows the texture of the wood to show. To save time when doing it yourself, the Olympic Maximum stain-andsealant-in-one line is a very popular choice. Q: How do I know when it’s time to restain? A: Over several seasons, weather and UV exposure causes stain to break down and then it allows moisture to enter the wood. Test the questionable finish by placing a small

amount of water on it for a few seconds. If, after a couple minutes, the water soaks in, the wood should be re-stained. If the water droplets remain on the surface, the stain is still effective. It’s important to determine the integrity of the stain on the wood before recoating as different procedures apply. Q: What steps are necessary to ensure that the stain on my deck has a long life? A: Start by stripping off any existing stain (a specialized deck cleaner is also available from Olympic) and then sand the surface to remove loose wood fibers and any contamination. This will ensure that the new coating is evenly absorbed. Make sure to follow the product directions when applying the new stain. Q: What is the one best tip to make sure my project turns out the way I want it? A: Do a patch test. This will allow you to see how the finish will look and give you the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments as to cleaning, colour, or application method.

ect premium hardwood flooring thanks to its exclusive “Contour Guard” finishing technology. “To help protect our customers’ hardwood investment while also protecting their family from harmful germs and bacteria, we’ve incorporated our germ protection into all of our flooring,” said Tom Gormley, President of Avant Guard Flooring, who’s site www. AGFlooringdirect.com has given consumers access to germ-protected premium highend flooring they can custom design online which then gets custom-made and shipped directly to their door in the con-

struction, species, grade, stain colour and gloss level of their choosing. Unlike other premium hardwood flooring manufacturers, Avant Guard’s exclusive germ protection technology is a patented process whereby an antimicrobial agent is applied not only to the top but to the entire contour of each board, greatly reducing the propagation of mould, germs, and bacteria in the home. “We can all use a recommended floor cleaner on the surface of our flooring to keep it clean and healthy, but what about the other five sides of every board in your

floor? If left unprotected they become an inviting breeding ground for germs and bacteria,” Gormley added. “It just makes good common sense that for the healthiest living environment, and a far greater degree of protection, that the un-maintainable sides of every board be treated prior to their installation.” Designers agree,

celebrity designer Glen Peloso of TV’s “Restaurant Makeover” fame, said that Avant Guard has set the new standard as the natural flooring choice for the healthy, beautiful home in

vogue today. “Their exciting selection of hardwood provides not only beauty, and longevity but also protection with its contour guard finishing technology,” he added.

As most parents can attest infants love to crawl around and put things in their mouth. No matter how hard you try to stop them it’s inevitable - if they can touch it, “it” will end up in their mouth. This is why parents are always on guard to protect their children from germs and bacteria lurking in their home. Since much of an infant’s time is spent on the floor, parents are now looking for flooring options that will minimize exposure to harmful germs, mould, mildew and bacteria. More and more are avoiding dirt, allergen and germ col-

of the bathrooms decorated by the designers who make up the group’s membership. It’s a grown-up hue that lends a sophistication consumers crave, the association says. Gray is more than just a mixture of black and white, said Sonu Mathew, an interior designer who works on the colour team that curates the palette for paint maker Benjamin Moore & Co. Gray can have undertones of red, blue, green or purple, which she said makes it “very complex,” even mysterious. That characteristic makes gray work well with many colours, Mathew said. Gray gives the eye a chance to rest, she explained, so we can appreciate the other colours in the room more. Interior designer Amy Douglass believes gray’s ability to play well with others _ even other neutrals such as creams, tans and white _ is a large part of its popularity. It’s similar to black in that regard but not as stark, said Douglass, owner and>>

Gray needs to be accompanied by plenty of light senior designer at her own design studio. “It’s just a little softer,” she said. “It’s not as dramatic as black and white.” Douglass has paired gray with yellow and white in a sunroom, and she’s now using a bluish gray in a kitchen she’s designing. It works well with the slate on the room’s fireplace and the maple of its cabinets, she said, as well as the gold, tan and rust in the adjacent great room. Designer Robin Brechbuhler incorporated gray liberally in a home she decorated for Elizabeth Hoover, chair of the Herbert W. Hoover Foundation and great-granddaughter of Hoover Co. founder W.H. “Boss” Hoover. Brechbuhler said the coloor choice was inspired in part by the metal of a couple of vintage Hoover vacuum cleaners displayed in the home. The neutral palette throughout the house blends grays with beiges and browns, a quiet background for bursts of colour. In a sitting area off the kitchen, for example, pillows in cream, orange and rust brighten a dark gray sectional. Gray grass cloth panels break up the dark taupe wall in the media room, and a wall covering made from chips of gray cer-

amic and glass makes one of the bathrooms sparkle. Brechbuhler loves the way gray sets off the colours of the antique Hoover displays around the house. “It’s a wonderful neutral,” she said. “It’s sort of taken the place of beige.” Gray used to be considered cold and masculine, Benjamin Moore’s Mathew said, but its use in fashion and other products such as cars has given us a new appreciation for it. When we see gray used beautifully in, say, a silk blouse, we start to break those

companied by plenty of light, she said. She outfitted a loft for one client with a charcoal floor and chairs covered in charcoal mohair, but she played them against ivory earth-plaster walls that lend warmth. Natural light bathes the space, and “that room feels beautiful, whether it’s winter or summer,” she said. No natural light? Use plenty of artificial light, she suggested. But make sure it’s dimmable, so you can change the mood of the room to fit the way you’re using it. Douglass said it’s

makes bright colours stand out. She showcased one client’s vibrant artwork by using a gray hardwood floor, gray carpeting and a black sofa to form a backdrop, and then brought pops of colour into the room by choosing dining chairs in different hues pulled from the art. Mathew said gray can also be used successfully in a monochromatic palette, but the trick to pulling that off is contrast. Incorporate lighter and darker shades of gray “so your eye can move around the room,” she said.

After a long, cold winter… Get your yard ready for summer After a long, dark winter, spring’s bright sun and warm winds are, well, a breath of fresh air. The only downside? All that sunshine spotlights your leaf-filled gutters, cracked sidewalks and the dead plants in last year’s flower beds. Dwight Barnett, a certified master home inspector, shares this checklist to help you target the areas that need maintenance so you can get your chores done quickly, leaving you time to go outside and play in the sunshine. Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the

basement or crawl space. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation and are clear and free of debris. Low areas in the yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also, when water pools in these low areas in summer, it creates a breeding ground for insects. Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around windows, doors, railings and decks. Make repairs now before the spring rains do more damage to the exposed wood. From the ground, examine roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter. If your home has an older roof covering, you may want to start a budget for replacement. The summer sun can really damage roof shingles. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose or are missing granules need to be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys need to be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer. Examine the exter-

ior of the chimney for signs of damage. Have the flue cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep. Inspect concrete slabs for signs of cracks or movement. All exterior slabs except pool decks should drain away from the home’s foundation. Fill cracks with a concrete crack filler or silicone caulk. When weather permits, power-wash and then seal the concrete. Remove firewood stored near the home. Firewood should be stored at least 18 inches off the ground at least two feet from the structure. Check outside hose faucets for freeze damage. Turn the water on and place your thumb or finger over the opening. If you can stop the flow of water, it is likely the pipe inside the home is damaged and will need to be replaced. While you’re at it, check the garden hose for dry rot. Have a qualified heating and cooling contractor clean and service the outside unit of the air conditioning system. Clean coils operate more efficiently, and an annual service call will keep the system working at

peak performance levels. Change interior filters on a regular basis. Check your gas-and battery-powered lawn equipment to make

sure it is ready for summer use. Clean equipment and sharp cutting blades will make yardwork easier.

Turn your neighbours green with envy We have all heard the phrase “the grass is always greener on the other side”. Just for once, wouldn’t it be nice to be on the greener side and the envy of your neighbours? The Home Depot Canada has some expert tips to getting that picture-perfect lawn you’ve been dreaming about. Fertilizer is a lawn’s best friend. Consider assessing the lawn’s health with a soil test before choosing a fertilizer. A variety of fertilizers exist, all with a range of different formulas containing three primary ingredients – nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. All plants are different, so make sure to follow the instructions found on the fertilizer package label for best results. Ensure the grass is dry before applying the fertilizer by using a rotary spreader and watering thoroughly afterwards. Take note of thirsty lawns. Key indicators for a dry lawn are faint bluish blades or when footprint impressions are left behind after walking on the grass. Early morning watering is recommended as grass blades are better able to take in moisture. This also allows time for the grass to dry out during the day and remain dry at night to prevent fungal disease. Water long enough for moisture to penetrate to the roots of the grass. As a rule, allow 5 cm of water to collect on the soil’s surface to ensure proper seepage down to the roots. Don’t forget that walking on water-soaked lawns can damage turf and cause soil compaction. Keep mower blades sharp. Dull blades tear the grass leaving jagged ends that easily turn brown so don’t forget to sharpen your mower’s blades every spring. Trimming grass too short destroys the energy-producing top growth, resulting in a sickly lawn. Keep in mind, frequent mowing to the correct height also produces tiny grass clippings that can be left on the lawn to decompose and return nutrients back to the soil.

Make your condo balcony an

urban haven

Most condo and apartment balconies are barren spaces surrounded by dull, grey concrete, steel and glass. They’re not very inviting. And that’s probably why most of us don’t use them very often. But why not use every inch of your little piece of urban real estate to its fullest? If your building’s rules allow you to, the experts at Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse offer a range of suggestions to maximize your living space by creating a cozy outdoor haven. A concrete floor isn’t very welcoming.Addinga small outdoor area rug will make it comfortable for your bare feet. Look for small-scale furniture that is both comfortable and functional. A cushioned corner chair or lounge at one end of a balcony gives you a place to read a book or take a breezy nap. A small bistro table and two chairs tucked into another corner create a relaxing nook for your morning tea or evening glass of wine. If you have the space and a suitable corner, two short

storage benches or deck boxes and a square table form a dining booth for entertaining. Whatever furnishings you choose, make sure your seating is comfortable. If your current chairs don’t have padding, invest in a few washable outdoor cushions. Then add some outdoor pillows and throw blankets. Don’t be afraid to choose bright colours and fun designs. A balcony is for relaxing and entertaining, so it should be friendly and inviting! If you’ll be using your patio at night,the rightlantern or outdoor candle can create a warm, relaxing ambiance.

A tiny garden can also add some life to your balcony. Many potted flowers and plants – including tomatoes, peppers and herbs - thrive in small spaces. “For a little variety, combo planters are great for creating balcony gardens, and they come in a range of colours and styles,” says Sarah Skeates, a Merchandising Specialist with Lowe’s. “If you don’t have space for a garden, a hanging wall bag adds a splash of colour to any outside wall space.” Now that Spring is here, it’s time to get started with turning that dreary condo patio into an urban haven!

Keep code in mind when renovating Renovator, beware: The challenges of finishing basements Canadians love to renovate and one of the most popular projects is to finish the basement — otherwise known as the rec. room, the kid’s playroom or the mancave. Some do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) may consider this type of renovation to be fairly straightforward and easy, but the truth is that it requires careful planning and coordination with your insurance company. community clean “A basement reno-up

winter, or a prolonged wet period to cause basement water damage. She advises practical protective measures such as installing a backwater value on the sewage pipe from the house and a sump pump drainage system. “The backwater valve will stop water from flowing back

into the house in the event that the sewer system gets overloaded,” she says. “The sump pump will help keep the area under the house dry by pumping water away, protecting the basement from possible seepage.” Kolah also recommends that homeowners repair any

cracks in their foundations and ensure they have good drainage around the house by building up and sloping the ground away from the exterior walls, extending downspouts and keeping eavestroughs clear. Speak to your insurance provider for more tips about finished basements.

prevention estimated that each year, 48 million Americans, or 1 in 6 people, get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of food-borne diseases. “You’re always gambling with germs,” said Dr. Charles Gerba, professor in the department of soil, water and environmental science at the University of Arizona. “The thing is to make the odds in your favor.” That means reducing exposure to germs, a feat best accomplished with regular hand-washing,

using hand sanitizer and keeping your paws off your face, Gerba said. It also means cleaning those grimy items you rarely think to clean, such as remote controls and cellphones. How often to scrub down depends on several factors. If you have kids or pets, if you have a compromised immune system, or if someone in your household is sick, you might need to clean more thoroughly and frequently, said Donna Duberg, assistant professor of clinical lab science at St. Louis University.

The dirt on germs

Given how often they’re on the floor, occasionally inside a public restroom, it should come as no surprise that a third of women’s purses crawl with E. coli. And given how many grubby hands and baby bottoms touch grocery store shopping carts, we shouldn’t flinch at the fact that, on average, they carry 115 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. It’s a dirty world we’re living in, and often our germiest encounters are not where we expect
