West Kelowna land donation revealed Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater announced Monday a portion of land adjacent to a section of the regionally-owned Glen Canyon Park has been donated to West Kelowna. A 3.62 hectare piece of property, formerly part of the Canyon Ridge Development, has been given to the district. The land features naturally sloping land and is adjacent to the linear Glen Canyon Park, owned by the Regional District of Central Okanagan. “This is a very generous gift to the District of West Kelowna and, on behalf of its residents, I thank First Island Financial Services Ltd. for its generosity,” said Findlater. “This donation strengthens our interests in ensuring that Glen Canyon is enjoyed by all members of the public and that it will continue to be held in the public interest.” Garry Gilchrist, P. Eng., co-owner/manager of ARAL Construction Ltd. and project manager for the Canyon Ridge Development was on hand representing the donor, See Land A14

DIAPER CHANGE…More than

30 parents turned out last Saturday to participate in The Great Cloth Diaper Change held at the Laurel Packinghouse in downtown Kelowna. The Kelowna group was part of a larger effort by participants in 14 countries attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the most babies getting a cloth diaper change at the same time. The event was also an opportunity to help promote the benefits of using cloth rather than disposable diapers. BARRY GERDING/CAPITAL NEWS

Performers band together to save Ballet Kelowna A variety show this Friday with more than 80 performers expected to take the stage will raise funds to give Ballet Kelowna’s new board of directors a financial leg to stand on. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It would appear Ballet Kelowna’s “final performance” mid-March was anything but a swan

song. This weekend, artists and cultural community enthusiasts will be out in force to celebrate the decade-old company’s success, rather than its de-

mise, with a benefit concert intended to bolster a revival. “This is based on the strong support for the last season,” said lead organizer Denise Griswald, a longtime Kelowna arts supporter who is spearheading the variety show fundraiser. When the board of directors for the Kelowna Ballet Society announced

on the last day of January that the directors would resign and close the company’s doors before the end of the season, all seemed lost. But the townhall meeting which followed, a gathering originally intended to provide the arts community a place to air their “support for dance in the Okanagan,” unearthed a strong resolve to keep

Before a full house at the Kelowna Art Gallery, Okanagan Symphony Orchestra conductor Rosemary Thomson summed up her own grief succinctly. “This is like a death in the family,” she said. The phrase proved a call-to-arms in the media and a groundswell of support quickly materialized within the Okanagan art-

istic and cultural community. The outpouring of love resulted in the company’s first sold-out show in its hometown last month, and membership in Kelowna Ballet Society doubled. A small board of directors has since stepped forward intent on finding See Save A15

City busy with capital project lineup

I N F I G C A O M

Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Times may still be tough economically, but Kelowna does not plan to slow down its spending on capital projects. The city says it plans to spend more than $89 million on projects in the coming year—either starting work on them or completing jobs already underway. Some of the work will be big ticket items: • The continuation of the $14-million Bernard Avenue revitalization project • $19 million to expand the existing Library parkade downtown and start building another, new 430-stall parkade downtown • $9.7 million to improve the entrance of the Glenmore landfill and build part of John Hindle Drive, and • completion of the new $8.2-million UV water treatment system in the Mission. Other projects, like construction of the new $5-million public pier and commercial marina on the downtown waterfront and construction of a $4.5 million transit hub in Rutland, will also be completed this year. In many cases, the bigger projects are already underway and are being

WADE PATERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

PROJECTS LIKE the $14-million Bernard Avenue revitalization—to be complete in the fall—are part of Kelowna’s $89-million capital spending plan for the coming year. built in phases. But not all the projects that the city plans to build this year will be big ticket items. The city will also spend $850,000 on improvements at the Kelowna Family Y building in Rutland, which it owns, to fix the cooling system and replace the concrete floor in the building’s women’s change room. The loss of city office space as a result of the 2011 fire that destroyed the Pavilion Building in City Park is prompting a $2 million renovation at City Hall to increase working space and

$800,000 will be spent to build new washrooms in City Park. The city is also planning to spend $1.9 million to start the expansion of Stuart Park downtown, now that the old Water Street Seniors Centre has been demolished to make way for a relocation of the Kelowna Yacht Club. Unlike previous years, there are not as many road projects planned for the city this year. And sewer projects are not on the list because government grants, that are usually available to reduce the cost to benefiting area home owners, have

all but dried up in recent years, say city officials. As a result, most of the capital spending will be on specific projects, which, in some cases, include contributions from outside groups or, in the case of the pier and commercial arena, are being built by companies that will make their money back by operating and maintaining the facility over the next 20 years. The range of projects outlined by the city includes everything from road resurfacing plans to new linear parks, underground utility replacements and new facilities

as well as the expansion of the Rapid Bus Transit system by adding the Rutland transit exchange and a new, smaller transit exchange at Okanagan College on KLO Road.

▼ KELOWNA HEALTH SHOW

Keynote speaker to focus on nutrition Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The woman voted B.C.’s favourite nutritionist in 2010 hasn’t always had the perfect diet. Lisa Kilgour, registered holistic nutritionist, describes herself as a “recovered sugar addict and processed food junkie.” “I’ve never worked with anybody with a diet as poor as mine was, nor have I ever worked with anybody as stubborn as I am,” said Kilgour. “I changed very slowly and fought it the whole way. But if I can do it, anybody can.” Kilgour will be a keynote speaker this weekend at the seventh annual Kelowna Health Show.

Lisa Kilgour The holistic nutritionist specializes in digestive issues, inflammation and blood sugar imbalances and works with clients to help them adjust their diets so food “works for them.” She also works at Inspire Health, an integrative cancer care centre. She said her talk this

Saturday will focus on her journey, what she did to change her diet and a practical guide to illustrate how audience members can do the same. “What I find is that food is really confusing. Most people don’t know what to eat because everywhere they turn good food is now bad or bad food is now good,” said Kilgour. Kilgour’s message is to eat real food rather than the packaged, frozen and processed items that are often more convenient. “It’s food that your grandmother or great grandmother would recognize…we all feel better when we just eat real food.” Kilgour has spoken at about 300 Okanagan

events over the last four years and considers the lectures a regular part of her life. “I’m not one to have anything memorized…I like to feel out the crowd and talk to them about what they’re looking for. “I always leave time for questions so I can make sure they get the information they’re looking for.” She added this weekend’s health show is appropriate for all ages and levels of health. “There will be information for those who are really well versed in nutrition or alternative medicine, but there will also be a great amount of information for those who are brand new to it.”

The Kelowna Health show takes place April 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and April 28 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kelowna Curling Club. Kilgour takes the stage at 4:10 p.m. Saturday. The event will feature nine speakers over the weekend and more than 60 exhibitors. Tickets for the event are $5 per day or $7.50 for a weekend pass and are available at the door. Children under 12 are free. Two-for-one coupons can be found at eatmorerealfood.com or thehealthshows.com. The first 100 people through the door will receive a complimentary gift bag. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

▼ SPCA DONATION

Budd family enhances Casorso Rd. shelter

Local philanthropist Tom Budd and his sons Payton and Dillon might be the most popular people among the animals currently awaiting adoption at the Kelowna branch of the SPCA. The reason for that excitement about the Budd family is the donations made to enhance the Kelowna branch over the past year. It all started with the SPCA’s annual gala fundraiser for the animals last November. Budd, along with his sons, attended the gala which they’ve supported for the past three years. During the evening, an opportunity was offered for supporters to provide a 600-foot perimeter fence around part of the SPCA property which would provide a larger area for the animals to get outside and get some exercise each day. Budd stepped up and said he would donate the $10,000 to cover the cost of the fence project. He also agreed to match the purchase price

for 100-year-old Paw Print Plaques, an auction item created to help celebrate the SPCA branch’s 100th anniversary. Overall, of the $140,000 raised from the gala, the Budd family accounted for some $30,000. “We consider their support as a family contribution and we are so proud that Payton and Dillon also choose to be young philanthropists for our homeless animals,” said Suzanne Pugh, branch manager of the Kelowna SPCA. The Thomas Alan Budd Foundation has also signed on for this year’s gala fundraiser event for Nov. 2 as the title sponsor. The new fence is in conjunction with the completion of the Kelowna SPCA branch’s new education centre, built by Kevin Edgecombe, of Edgecombe Builders. The building will host summer camps for children ages 6 to 13 where they can learn more about responsible pet care, provide individualized be-

NDP leader brings positive message to the Okanagan Roger Knox CONTRIBUTOR

You won’t find Adrian Dix being a bully during the provincial campaign. B.C.’s NDP leader brought his campaign to Vernon Sunday, and told close to 200 people crammed into a meeting room at the Schubert Centre that it doesn’t serve anybody’s purpose to run people down personally, “even if we disagree with them politically.” Dix was referring to an 18-month ad campaign “run by the Liberal party and allies,” and called the campaign “the most aggressive personal attack ads this province has seen against a politician.” The alleged bullying and constant negativity between politicians is part of the reason, said Dix, voter turnout in the last provincial election was so poor. “Half the people in Vernon-Monashee, Shuswap, and Kelowna-Lake Country that were eligible to vote, voted,” said Dix in a 20-minute opening statement to the crowd.

“People are rejecting the political process because there’s a negative debate in a language they don’t understand. “Of course we have disagreements with the Liberal party. After 12 years in government, frankly, they deserve time in opposition.” Dix said he disagreed with the Liberals’ decision to spend $16 million on taxpayer-funded ads that ran before the election, disagreed with $11 million spent on a movie pageant in Vancouver and really disagreed that a retractable roof on B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver was more important than hospital beds wanted and needed in Vernon. Still, Dix said the leaders of the three other parties and their candidates are all good people. “I think that’s where we start now in this campaign. There are real differences,” said Dix. “We think it’s time for a change and we’re going to say what we’re going to do and how we’re going to pay for them.” Part of the NDP platform is focusing on things

that matter to the people, and he stated that Vernon represents the heart of B.C. “People don’t expect everything here,” he said. “People want the fundamentals to be right. “They want to have high-quality public health care and young people that have access to quality education and skills training.” One of the things important to residents of Vernon and the North Oka-

nagan is agriculture. Vernon resident Jim Miles asked Dix about the NDP’s plan to protect orchardists, abattoirs and the possible introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) which could threaten standard and organic agriculture. “We’re helping them by ensuring that when the government buys food, it buys local whenever it can,” said Dix. “We want to bring back the Buy B.C. cam-

paign and promote B.C. agriculture. Consumers want to know where they can find B.C. products, promote it properly and get consumer support. “There would be direct support for replanting for the tree fruit industry here so they get the support they need. “The tree fruit industry is a key force in this region and has been for more than 100 years. It doesn’t make sense because of a short-term crisis to allow

it to fail.” Miles acknowledged afterward that he was happy with Dix’s reply. “I wasn’t sure if he was aware of what was specifically going on in the Okanagan,” said Miles. Dix also answered questions on smart meters, securing job, the provincial debt, liquor laws, student loans, film production and a pipeline for northern B.C. before a crowd represented by all

generations. Kate Alexander, a 19-year-old Vernon student, doesn’t know who she’ll vote for next month and came out to hear what Dix had to say. “I liked his ideas about long-term plans instead of short-term plans and I appreciated his stance on students loans and bringing back non-refundable student grants,” said Alexander. “I was happy with his answers.” roger@vernonmorningstar.com

Liberal counters NDP farming claims

▼ ELECTION

NDP agriculture policy unveiled at local orchard

Alistair Waters

ASSISTANT EDITOR

B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix came to the Okanagan on the weekend to reveal his party’s plans for agriculture. During quick stops in Lake Country and Kelowna, Dix said the NDP is committed to what he called “change for the better” for B.C.’s food producers and agricultural communities. Dix said an NDP government led by him would make an annual investment of $8 million in programs to develop local markets and promote stability for B.C. and Okanagan growers. Dix said that an NDP government would replace the past Liberal “piecemeal” approach with a coordinated plan to support the agricultural sector, featuring three signature programs. “Feed BC will put healthy, locally-grown food on the plates for patients in B.C. hospitals and long-term care to improve diets and health outcomes,” said Dix. “Feed BC will expand the market for local food, helping producers thrive and boosting local economies.” Dix also announced Grow BC, a plan to promote food security and sustained local production. A key component of Grow BC will be an initiative to support growers with replanting and renewing their orchards. It will also provide organic and conventional farmers with more direct support through extension services. “Our agricultural program,” said Dix, “will bring back Buy BC a successful and widely-supported marketing program to promote BC-grown food that was eliminated by the BC Liberals.” “(Kelowna-Lake Country incumbent Liberal MLA and B.C. Agriculture Minister) Norm Letnick and the B.C. Liberals have all but abandoned B.C.’s agriculture industry,” said Mike Nuyens, the NDP candidate challenging Letnick in Kelowna-Lake Country. “Here in the Okanagan we have a choice between more of the same neglect by the Liberals, or change for the bet-

www.kelownacapnews.com A9

ter for B.C.’s food producers such as our local fruit growers.” Nuyens running mate in Kelowna-Mission, Tish Lakes, also weighed in noting the short tenure of Liberal agriculture ministers in this province since 2009. “In the last four years we have had four different B.C. Liberal agriculture ministers,” said Lakes. “You have to wonder why they have paid so little attention to this file.” Since 2009, the cabinet post has been held by all three Liberal MLAs who represent the Central Okanagan ridings—Letnick, Steve Thomson (Kelowna-Mission) and Ben Stewart (Westside Kelowna). In addition to bringing back the BUY BC program, one Westside-Kelowna NDP candidate Carole Gordon called “one of Canada’s most successful government and industry marketing programs,”

the NDP will also use Feed BC to put healthy, locally-grown food in meals for patients in B.C. and Okanagan hospitals and long-term care facilities. Later, in Kelowna, he said the NDP would also take measures to grow B.C.’s award-winning craft distillery industry. Last week, Letnick re-announced plans first revealed in the recent B.C. budget to help agriculture, including, an extra $2 million for its Buy Local program on top of the original $2 million announced last August. On the weekend, Letnick posted a Facebook message saying he had taken time out from door-knocking to “evaluate” the NDP’s agriculture plan, and didn’t find much there. “More like a few power point bullets,” he wrote. “As a business prof and agri minister (sic), I give it an F.”

Norm Letnick, the Liberal candidate in Kelowna-Lake Country and B.C.’s current agriculture minister, says a number of policies designed to boost and promote agriculture, including more money for the Buy Local campaign, have been included in this party’s election platform. “No matter where you go in British Columbia, you will find agricultural industries and farms that make a big contribution to their communities. Our party values all agricultural producers and are proud to offer them our continuing support,” said Letnick. “Almost half of the food we consume is produced right here in B.C. and nine-out-of-10 farms are owned and operated by families. “Our platform initiatives, such as enhancing the Buy Local Campaign, offering carbon tax relief, and introducing a new meat inspection system, will make a positive difference to B.C. agricultural producers.” He added the Liberals agriculture plan has three

Letnick said this will encourage consumers to think about where their food comes from and will promote so-called “50mile” and “100-mile” diets • Introducing a new meat inspection system effective Jan. 1, 2014 • Working with the

B.C. Association of Cattle Feeders to develop and promote its Certified B.C. Beef brand • Continuing to work with other provincial governments to break down barriers that prevent the movement of B.C. wine across provincial borders • Creating a Centre of Excellence for Agriculture at the University of the Fraser Valley • Working with the organic farming industry to develop a B.C. organic brand to promote the organic food sector. Letnick, who became agriculture minister late last year, said the agrifoods sector provides more than 61,000 jobs and generates more than $10.9 billion a year in provincial revenues. “It is Canada’s most diverse agrifoods industry and has the potential to be a $14-billion powerhouse by 2017,” Letnick said.

According to Letnick, specific measures include: • Re-introducing the 2013 budget that provided $20 million in carbon tax relief for greenhouse and flower growers and ongoing $4 million in carbon tax relief for farmers who purchase coloured fuel for use in their farming equipment • Giving growers a tax credit of 25 per cent of the wholesale value of food donated to a food bank • Beginning work on a permanent and sustainable tree fruit replant program, to be implemented following the current three-year, $2 million program • Adding a further $2 million to the Buy Local

▼ OUR VIEW

B.C.’s future in our hands

W

ith less than one month to go to the provincial election, all the players of the drama are in place. Some—like the B.C. Conservatives—have been rehearsing their lines loudly and longly. Others—like the Green Party and even the NDP— are just starting to make their presence felt on the stage. And then there are the B.C. Liberals, who seem to

have been in a situation of almost permanent campaigning since Gordon Campbell stepped down as leader some two and a half years ago. What is now needed to complete the show is the presence—and the voice—of the people. And what we should remember at this point—all smoke and mirrors, scriptwriters and noisy claques to one side—is that this is far more than theatre.

We, the electorate, are not simply an audience. We are employers, and the politicians—no matter their party affiliations or ideological alignment—are the applicants hopeful of being hired as our representatives. Their pay will come out of our pockets, and their decisions will have a very real impact on the course of our lives for the next four years. Like any employer, we have the right to ask ques-

tions of potential employees, and make note of straightforward answers, as well as evasions and attempts to obscure the truth. Our participation in the election, particularly when ballots are cast, is vital to the process. This is more than a matter of the usual lecture about civic responsibility, low voter turnout and the importance of stepping up and being counted. The choice is ours.

Agriculture plans of political parties offer voters food for thought

D

espite the political rhetoric that includes both sides dissing each other about their respective plans, it seems the Liberals and the NDP are offering British Columbians the same dish when it comes to promoting agriculture in this province. Using different names for their programs, its appears both parties want us to buy and consume more locally produced food products. The NDP calls its program Buy B.C., while the Liberals call theirs

Buy Local. The NDP want to make B.C. hospitals include more provincially grown fruit and vegetables in the meals they provide Alistair to their patients. The Waters Liberals want to encourage hospitals to do the same thing. The NDP wants to develop local markets and promote stability for B.C. and Okanagan growers. The Liberals want to help growers with what they call a “new permanent and sustainable replant program.” But to hear NDP leaderAdrian

CITY CONFIDENTIAL

Dix and local Liberal MLA and current Agriculture Minister Norm Letnick describe it, you’d think that the other is proposing an entire erradication of the agriculture industry in this province. “Not much of a plan,” said Letnick on his Facebook page Sunday. “As a business prof and agri minister, I give it an F.” That after the NDP accused Letnick and the B.C. Liberals of “abandoning” the agriculture industry. Of course, elections are all about rhetoric and given the importance of agriculture to this area of B.C., the rhetoric is flowing particularly thick and fast on the topic as we enter the

second week of the “official” election campaign. But local candidates have been sparing over this, and other issues,since well before the writ was dropped last Tuesday. The week before B.C. Conservative candidate in Kelowna-Lake Country, Graeme James, challenged Letnick to a one-on-one debate about agriculture issues. He was rebuffed. At the time, James said he had no confidence in Letnick and questioned if the local MLA even understood the issues at hand. As we near the May 14 election date, the political bluster is only going to heat up on all sides, as those run-

ning for office appeal for every vote they think they can get. So while left, right and centre leanings will be played upon, voters need to take a close look at what all the parties are offering in order to make an informed decision when they go to the polls. There are stark differences between the parties on a number of issues but it seems that when it comes to agriculture, the Liberals and the NDP are not as far apart as the candidates may want you to think they are. And for voters, that really is something to chew on. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor.

LETTERS ▼ SMART METERS

Health fear claims getting outlandish To the editor: The level of absurdity that opposition to smart meters has reached, was clearly illustrated by the Capital News news story in the April 18 edition (page A10) headlined: Refusal to Accept Smart Meter Leads to Power Being Cut Off. As reported in that story, a Peachland woman who refused to have a smart meter installed, claiming “electromagnetic field sensitivity,” was speaking to the

interviewer by cordless phone. Yes, that’s right... she was talking quite comfortably on a cordless phone that inherently generates an electromagnetic field several times stronger than that generated by a smart meter, and does so an inch away from the user’s head. Am I the only one who cringes at the idiocy of this situation? In Vancouver, many residents complained that smart meters were making them feel unwell

or even sick, but it turned out that BC Hydro hadn’t even enabled any smart meter transmitters. They were still being read manually. Hydro was waiting until all meters were installed before activation. Clearly, all those claims were imagined. In fact, smart meters generate far lower levels of electromagnetic fields than cell phones, and what’s more, they transmit for less than a minute per day.

As for all those outlandish claims, we really must give the Central and South our imaginations a rest and stopofOkanagan / Similkameen being afraid of what we don’t understand. Robert Wilson, Kelowna

Editor’s Note: The Peachland woman was actually speaking with a Capital News reporter for the story from a landline despite the fact her power was out.

▼ HIAWATHA PARK

Mobile home owners still upset To the editor: A sad thing happened in Kelowna on April 8. Mayor Walter Gray and Kelowna city council voted to rezone Hiawatha Mobile Home Park, allowing Westcorp Developers to build their oversized apartment complex. While this is a tragedy for the remaining owners in the park, the decision raises questions about our current city government. In 2007, Hiawatha owners expressed concern about this development to the city. Former mayor Sharon Shepherd wrote a letter summarizing city policy 229: “The City has a clear policy…that outlines several measures that must be taken before a rezoning would be approved, including significant notification to affected residents of any applications. In short, the city and council has an interest in ensuring the rights of residents of mobile homes are protected (and) the residents don’t find themselves unduly displaced as a result of redevelopment.” Without this policy, mobile home owners have few rights. This policy states that any rezoning

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference

of the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen

of existing mobile home parks where older homes are located will not be considered for rezoning until a viable relocation plan for affected units is in place. The policy protects people displaced by redevelopment. Under the leadership of Mayor Gray, we can say the city and council do not have an interest in the rights of residents or in policy 229. According to the mayor, and echoed by council, the concerns of Hiawatha owners are “landlord-tenant issues” and not part of the rezoning issue. The human factor cannot be considered. Policy 229 was adopted 20 years ago. It made Kelowna the first city in B.C. to introduce legislation for mobile home owners affected by development. Mayor Gray and council turned their backs on this policy and the people it protects. On April 24, 2012, a Hiawatha committee met with Mayor Gray to discuss this policy, and to discuss their concerns about Westcorp developers. He was unaware of policy 229, so we informed him that other cities in the valley have adopted this policy and

rules that ensure developers deal with owners fairly. They require that owners’ individual needs are considered as they offer relocation options. We gave Mayor Gray copies of the city’s policy and those of other cities. Hiawatha owners asked him to determine how Kelowna would implement policy 229 and get back to us. He agreed. Two months passed without a word. When we saw him again on June 22, 2012, it was clear he hadn’t spoken to council but had met with Westcorp’s Gail Temple. He did not remember the policy or our discussions around it. We asked him again to discuss policy 229 with council and explain how the city would implement it. Once again he agreed. As of last month, at least one councillor knew nothing about the policy and the protection it offered. At the public hearing March 26, we reminded Mayor Gray and council of policy 229 and the fact Westcorp had not communicated with residents in more than four years. In that time, frightened seniors had sold and left

If a rifle could tell a story… To the editor: With amnesty on firearms approaching, here is a little food for thought. If a long rifle could tell a story, the hunting story it might tell may make you think twice about having it destroyed by the RCMP. Perhaps the story of a father or grandfather taking his son or grandson on a hunting trip or harvesting their first deer, moose or elk. I know that some rifles might have a bad story behind them, like how it had to protect its owner from being mauled from a bear or how it protected a hen house from some wily coyote. But it also may tell a story about how

it protected a soldier in one of the great wars So if you have an unwanted firearm, please think twice about having it destroyed. First, you may want to contact a local fish and game club, such as the Oceola Fish and Game Club, where it would be used for firearm safety classes or for the hunter training program. Another thing you may consider is contacting a gunsmith such as Weber and Markin—you could be sitting on few hundred dollars. Nick Kozub, Oceola Fish and Game Club

the park with less compensation than they felt they deserved. Westcorp hadn’t “relocated” them, but dictated financial terms without negotiation. A report to city council on April 3 suggested the objectives of policy 229 were satisfied—even though owners weren’t dealt with fairly, they hadn’t been relocated and the four relocation options were not viable. By disregarding the human factor, our mayor and council have made a bold statement—people in Kelowna don’t matter, development does. A developer’s integrity doesn’t matter as long as they erect new buildings. And city policies aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. Hiawatha owners have lodged a complaint against the city with the B.C. Ombudsman. They are seeking pro-bono legal help to ensure their rights are upheld. Unless we want to change our city name to “Westcorp Kelowna,” citizens should be concerned about City Hall’s priorities. Sandy Campbell, leader of the Hiawatha Park mobile home owners

OBFUSCATION

Politicians will not take a stand on policy matters To the editor: I’ve just read my son Paul Hergott’s column about trying to get B.C. government personnel to commit themselves to safer driving practices in B.C. (Capital News, April 18). I’m reminded of some of my career with a provincial government in Saskatchewan, when I wrote letters for the minister’s signature. Politicians would never take a position to which any voter might object, and so I held my nose to formulate obfuscations and weasel-words to respond to voters’ letters, some of which requested government action which directly contradicted explicit government policy. Any formulation of response which too explicitly contradicted what voters were requesting was rejected for reformulation. Al Hergott, West Kelowna

Make the best use of a tax refund C ongratulations—you received a tax

refund. The good news is you now have money you did not have yesterday; and the reality of your tax refund is your own money is now being returned to you. You loaned the government your hard earned money for the past 12 months—free of charge—and they are now giving it back to you after you filed your tax return. What should you do with your tax refund in 2013? Always pay down bad debt with high interest rates being charged to you. Bad debt can be considered as any type of credit card debt charging you interest rates of example 9%, 18% or 28%. Paying down your bad debt with a tax refund provides you with a guaranteed after tax rate of return that you are currently paying on high interest debt. This is by far the No. 1 best choice—though it may not be your first choice because it is not a lot of fun. But you will thank yourself in the future. Have an emergency fund. If your current emergency fund is a high interest credit card, find a better plan than that. You should have several months of income set aside—or have the

now. If you have mortgage insurance covering your mortgage or line of credit. Talk to a life insurance broker to save money and provide an added layer of financial security for your family with life insurance. A tax refund can help to cover the cost of premiums on a life insurance policy. Providing for dependants, covering taxes on death, paying off debts, or equalizing an estate are all reasons for purchasing life insurance. Contribute to your RRSP. If you have room to contribute to your registered retirement savings plan, this will provide additional tax savings for next year. Next to paying down bad debt, setting aside money for retirement is your next best option. If you have no debt or minimal debt, contribute to your TFSA. This allows you to benefit from tax free investing. Many Canadian’s are receiving minimal interest on their TFSA—which results in very little value to the consumer. Consider building other forms

of equity with your tax refund. Real estate and private business ownership can increase our equity over our lifetime. A tax refund can contribute to a larger pool of money to build other types of equity. Contribute to an RESP. If you love free money from the government, set aside money for the education of a child or grandchild with your tax refund. These contributions will receive Canada Education Savings Grants (CESGs) from the government. RESP contributions are not tax deductible but will assist children and grandchildren in paying for post-secondary education and will attract the CESG maximums. Give your money away to your intended (family) heirs now. Gifting your money now allows you to reduce the size of your estate at the time of your death, and reduces taxes and probate fees at that time.

Mayor salutes city’s volunteers The City of Kelowna and its mayor and council are celebrating Volunteer Week, running April 22-26, by taking a moment to recognize some of the groups and individuals who work hard to make Kelowna a great community. “Volunteers make our community,” said Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray at Monday’s council meeting. “Whether devoting their time to events or causes, these community-minded volunteers make this city a great place to live and visit.” According to the mayor, volunteer opportunities at the City of Kelowna include: • Adopt-a-Road—Private organizations, clubs

and community groups can help the city keep Kelowna beautiful by volunteering their labour to pick up litter along the sides of roads. • Adopt-a-Stream and Yellow Fish Road— These watershed stewardship programs give organizations, families, individuals, clubs and community groups the opportunity to assist the city in keeping Kelowna’s streams healthy. • Bike to Work Week—Residents can become a team leader and provide inspiration and motivation for coworkers to get involved, whether seasoned cyclists or first-timers. Visit smartTRIPS.ca for more information.

• Kelowna International Airport—A number of opportunities are available at our airport, which include the ambassador and junior ambassador programs, manning the Tourism Kelowna kiosk and being part of the Airport Watch. Additional details can be found at ylw.kelowna.ca. • RCMP—Groups like Citizen Patrol Teams make Kelowna a safer place. The 2012/2013 holiday season showed the impact of our volunteers with calls for service to mall parking lots reduced by 33 per cent and theft from motor vehicles reduced by 24 per cent. • Recreation & Cultural Services—Opportunities in recreation range

from being a community access assistant, working with persons with a disability and offering support and companionship, to being a program, special event or aquatic volunteer. Visit kelowna.ca/ recreation to learn more. • Snow Busters— This goodwill program encourages residents to lend a hand after a snowfall and shovel sidewalks or driveways for their lesser-able neighbours. See kelowna.ca/transportation for more about snow and ice removal and the Snow Busters program. And there are many more opportunities within the community, offered by private organizations and public groups, to fit a variety of interests.

Stellar drag queen performance puts spotlight on Kelowna Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If Okanagan residents, actors and audiences alike keep hitting the “like” button, Kelowna Actor’s Studio owner Nathan Flaval will become drag queen royalty. The company has turned its spotlight— publicity machine, fans and fellow actors—on a national drag competition to see if general manager Nathan Flaval can turn up the heat just enough to secure the top spot in OUT Television’s drag competition, RuPaul’s Drag Queen Race. Flaval’s taped entry showcases his character, Hannah, from the Actor’s Studio’s latest production, La Cage Aux Folles, which ran from April 3-20. The entry is in the competition’s top spot as it has received the most “like” hits, as voted on daily by online voters; however, it has not been well received by some in the competition. “Most of these girls are professional drag queens that work very hard day-in and day-out

NATHAN Flaval, general manager of Kelowna Actor’s Studio, is generating interest in the company’s latest performance and the wrath of some drag queens for entering OutTV’s drag competition and taking the lead with a character created for a play rather than drag culture. to make a living and bring amazing entertainment to their cities—for them this wasn’t done on a lark or as a joke,” wrote Queer Can-

Ballet supporters rally behind fundraiser Save from A1 a way to clear the financial difficulties plaguing the society. Thomson was among the first to offer her talents to the effort, and will be among the many noteworthy artists on stage in this opening fundraiser. She will play a piano duet with Okanagan-based composer Arnold Draper, who has written scores for her orchestra and the ballet, including Ballet Kelowna’s first performance “when the audience was infinitesimal,” as he put it. This show should yield throngs of fans by comparison, many to support the ballet and many keen on seeing the unusual display of talent on the stage together for this one special evening. “It’s one of a kind, all these different artists coming together,” said Draper, who has worked with many of the key players. In addition to playing with Thomson, he will perform with local opera singer Alexandra Babbel,

both with and without a dance accompaniment. “I’m a keen supporter of all of the arts. We have a flourishing orchestra, we have chamber music and (Ballet Kelowna) just fits right in with that,” he said. Draper’s sister-inlaw, world renown cellist Sharon McKinley, will play with him on Mikhail Fokine’s The Dying Swan. And the other performers will include ballet instructor and past Ballet Kelowna soloist Tiffany Bilodeau (now with I-Dance Studios), local countertenor and actor Quinn Bates, Carly Butler of the Canadian School of Ballet, violinist Colleen Venables (returning from a concert tour in China), and more than 80 other talented performers. The show runs this Friday, April 26, 7:30 p.m., in the Kelowna Community Theatre, 1375 Water St. Tickets can be purchased online or by phone at 250-862-2867 or in person at the Kelowna Actors Studio Box Office, 1379 Ellis St.

ada executive director Elliott Youden on the Facebook wall of the competition site where voters have started discussing wheth-

er Flaval’s entry is fair to the other performers or whether it mocks the culture. On the flipside, there are those who appear to participate in drag culture who don’t seem to be offended by his entry. “People, this is bigger than the BC election! Vote every day and keep Mz. Hannah at the top! You never know what kind of treats she will have for you when she wins. She has a big whip and knows how to use it,” wrote Oddree Mayormaynot, equity advocate. Flaval has responded to the criticisms online: “Despite the fact I am getting called out for cheating, not being pretty enough, too biker-drag and cliché with no pi-

zazz by supporters of my competition—please DO NOT post negative comments on my competitors’ pages. I want to win this as nicely and politely as possible with my head held high. As RuPaul says: ‘All tea no shade momma.’ Thanks so much for everyone’s support. This is just humbling,” he wrote.

Rather ironically, a group of young Kelowna-based drag performers have been in the news this year making a valiant effort to develop a drag scene as the art form has not been part of the cultural milieu in the Okanagan. Those who want to support Flaval’s entry are asked to “like” OutTV and then click the vote

button to select Hannah from the list of performers. Should Flavel win, he will receive a $25,000 trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and a good deal of publicity for Kelowna Actor’s Studio, a business he co-owns with Randy Leslie, who is the artistic managing director. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

The kimjongilia is a hybrid begonia that was created for the 46th birth-

▼ MEDIA COVERAGE

Do we really know what seems clear and obvious? L ‘‘ ast Friday, some of the most dramatic live news coverage I’ve seen since 2001 flowed out of Boston. As the manhunt for the surviving bombing suspect unfolded, the moment-to-moment media coverage demonstrated how difficult it can be for reporters to stick to what they truly know. This was a live demonstration, for me, of how important the words are that we use in our work. Unfortunately for journalists, their use of words is there for all to see, and when they go overboard it’s plain to see. In the heat of the moment in the Boston suburb of Watertown, with a multitude of police forces rushing in various directions, reporters must have felt like puppets being yanked all over the place. In that whirlwind of action, they sought to draw conclusions for viewers from the chaos of what they were seeing and hearing. The challenge, in that situation, is that what reporters think they are seeing, hearing and reading very well may be totally inaccurate. And as the morning hours passed by, there were several instances in which reporters gave the strong impression to viewers that police had the suspect cornered and an apprehension was imminent. That, as we realized, turned out to be a false alarm on each such occasion. Three culprit words used by reporters which, in my view, contribute to confusion and misinfor-

YOU WORK HERE

Robert Smithson mation are “clearly,” “obviously” and “know.” Perhaps reporters should tattoo these words to their wrist with an “X” through them, for a quick reminder of words to avoid in a fluid news situation. The difficulty of these words is that they not only imply, but express a state of knowledge, a state of knowing the facts, of knowing the actual reality of a situation. Well, we know (yes, know) that on Friday morning reporters (like everyone else) had very little knowledge of what was actually occurring. I’ve heard the human tendency to connect the dots—to fill in the necessary information in between and thus arrive at a satisfactory conclusion—called “confirmation bias.” I gather it’s a tendency to actively seek out and assign more weight to evidence that confirms a desired hypothesis, and to ignore or under-weigh evidence that could disconfirm that hypothesis. On Friday morning and early afternoon, the desired hypothesis seemed to be that police had cornered or captured the fugitive. And, apparently, that hypothesis was given more weight than it deserved. Former U.S. defense secretary Don-

ald Rumsfeld famously said something to the effect of: “There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we now know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns— there are things we do not know we don’t know.” In a fluid situation such as Friday’s in Boston, I suggest that the “known knowns” comprised only the tiniest slice and the “known unknowns” combined with the “unknown unknowns” represented the huge majority of the situation.

THE CHALLENGE… IS THAT WHAT REPORTERS THINK THEY ARE SEEING, HEARING, AND READING VERY WELL MAY BE TOTALLY INACCURATE.

Some things the reporters seemed to be relying upon, during Friday’s manhunt, included fragments of information spilling out of other media organizations, disjointed comments made by

police officers and heard over police radio, and what their eyes and ears suggested was happening at any given moment. Unfortunately, none of these things proved to be in any way reliable until the very end. What we (the viewers) ended up with was a lot of pure speculation, based on pure speculation, but sometimes presented as fact. It was presented as fact when words like “clearly,” “obviously” and “know” were used. Phrases such as, “We know right now that…” and, “Obviously, this situation is heading to-

wards…” and, “Clearly, what has happened is…” sound to me, a viewer, as if the reporter has verified what is actually going on. In truth, that may not be the case. Change those phrases to, “We believe right now that…,” or “Apparently, this situation is heading towards…,” and “Seemingly, what has happened is…” and you’ve produced a very different message. What you have is the truth—that the reporter doesn’t actually know what is happening —and you have a message which says to the viewer, “We don’t know precisely what is happen-

ing, but this is what we’re seeing and hearing, and you’ll have to draw your own conclusions.” I humbly suggest, to various North American news organizations that would be a more productive, accurate and truthful way of portraying a scene. It may not be as exciting or satisfying, but clearly, and obviously, what we know is a better version of the news than what we don’t know.

Volunteer experiences mean something to employers T his being National Volunteer Week, what a great time to acknowledge all the unpaid workers who make the world go round. We should proudly celebrate their contributions. Volunteering is important on many levels. We know that certain not-for-profit organizations could not function without the efforts of volunteers. What though, is in it for the volunteers? This is not a crass question, but rather a prompt to consider what motivates volunteers to commit to and engage in the work that is being asked of them. People volunteer for all kinds of reasons. It is a way to help others in need and to support causes that have meaning and add value to the community as well as the world at large. Volunteering is also a means of staying connected with people. When people are out of the workforce they lose the social side of employment. Being unemployed or retired can create a sense of isolation and volunteering can keep a person linked to the outside world in a healthy way. As well, volunteering is a resourceful way to bridge gaps in employment and boost self esteem. When someone is in between jobs it can be a blessing to find unpaid work that allows them to feel useful and productive. In particular, things like local sports and recreation events or community projects are great opportunities to informally network as well. Whether someone is working or not, volunteering offers opportunities for significant personal and professional growth. It is so important though to find the right fit so that those benefits can be realized. Exactly what constitutes a positive volunteer experience will differ from person to person. Some people are just happy to give their time, do whatever work is needed and be the helping hands that ease the workloads of others. On the other hand, there are volunteers who need more than that. These individuals are keen to contribute their expertise knowing certain not-for-profit organizations would not be able to afford them otherwise. In both examples, the

WORK LIFE

Laurie Mills people who donate their time get something in return, as they should.

Finding a compatible volunteer situation demands the same focus and effort that a job search requires. While many organizations are short of volunteers, it does not mean that they will accept just anyone who applies. Volunteer recruitment, when done well, follows the same principles as regular recruitment.

Potential volunteers need to be clear about what they are offering and be able to present their skills, experience and personal qualities clearly so that the organization or ad hoc group can assess whether those meet their particular needs. From the volunteer’s perspective, there is certainly nothing wrong with

choosing roles that enhance one’s professional profile. The reality is that employers look more closely these days at applicants’ community and volunteer experience. Where and how people choose to spend their time outside work tells a potential employer a lot about an applicants’ character and

personal values. In some cases not having current volunteer experience listed on a resume will make the difference between getting hired or not. Giving something back to the community— local or global—is still the best reason to volunteer. The opportunities are diverse and the need is al-

ways there. With careful consideration and clear purpose, the right match will yield benefits for everyone. Laurie Mills is a certified executive coach and human resource professional. Her company is Lighthouse Professional Development Consulting Services. 250-869-7523

NEWS ▼ CRIME AWARENESS WEEK

Public has role to play in assisting the police to control crime “We all have a role” is the theme of this year’s National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, taking place across Canada from April 21 to 27. Activities across the country will focus on raising awareness of services available to victims of crime in Canada, such as those provided by the Kelowna Women’s Shelter, the Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society, and the Kelowna Family Center. National Victims of Crime Awareness Week also provides opportunities to further explore new ways to reach out to victims of crime and give them a stronger voice in the justice system. The Now What? campaign helps friends, family and neighbours understand what they can do when they witness violence and abuse against

women or children, or suspect that violence or abuse is taking place. “National Victims of Crime Awareness Week is an important event for our community. The first level of support for many victims of crime is family and friends. We want people to know how they can help by connecting someone in need with local service providers” said Lisa Binnie, chair of the VAWIR (Violence Against Women In Relationships) committee, a local group consisting of 20 plus community organizations focused on delivering services to women and children. “There are many resources available to victims of violence and abuse in our community, but many people don’t know where to turn for help. “This week allows us to share information about

local organizations and services that help victims of crime maintain hope for the future and rebuild their lives.” Kelowna Women’s Shelter, the Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society, the Kelowna Family Center, and their partner organizations on the VAWIR committee will commemorate the week with two “Freeze Mob” events in Kelowna and West Kelowna. Participants will be holding signs displaying messages of hope from victims who have received help. The first “Freeze Mob” will be held at the Kelowna courthouse on April 24, 1:30 p.m. The second event will be held at the Lion’s Community Centre in Westbank on April 26, noon. These events are intended to raise awareness

of the services available for victims of domestic violence and demonstrate the impact that friends,

family, and neighbours For more information can have by reaching out on the Now What? camto connect victims with paign, please visit www. T:5.694” local service providers. nowwhat.me For more

NEWS ▼ INTESTINAL DISORDER

Gastroenteritis is a common infection most pets will face

O

ver the past week, I have treated two animals that consumed food that was recalled due to contamination. In addition to these two dogs, we also helped several different animals that suffered from upset stomach. Gastroenteritis is probably the most common reason that draws pet owners to seek veterinary medical treatment. I don’t know any pet owner that hasn’t dealt with this problem at some point in the pet’s life. Gastroenteritis is an infection of the alimentary tract. The most common symptom associated with it is diarrhea. Diarrhea is characterized by changes in the stool consistency-runny stool, and the stool’s colour. Diarrhea can be caused by a disease of the small intestine, large intestine or other organs outside of the intestinal tract, the liver for an example. There are few differences between the diarrhea that is originated from the small and the large intestine. Small intestinal and large intestinal diarrhea have different causes, require different tests to diagnose and are treated differently. Your vet will ask you instructive questions in order to understand, better locate the pet’s problem, and to plan for specific tests to determine the cause of the diarrhea. There are numerous reasons for diarrhea. Among the hundreds of causes for diarrhea there are intestinal parasites, viral, bacterial or fungal infections, food allergies, intestinal foreign body, tumors, diseases of the pancreas, liver or kidneys and many other reasons. The most common reason for diarrhea is probably dietary indiscre-

FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz tion, meaning the pet got into garbage or other bad food. Some pets have a very sensitive digestive system and just a change in the pet’s diet can elicit diarrhea. Another common symptom of gastroenteritis is vomiting. When the animal suffers from diarrhea and vomiting, it is not absorbing the nutrients from the diet properly which leads to weight loss and electrolytes imbalance. Furthermore, this condition may also lead to dehydration. If there is presence of blood in the stool or vomit, a severe blood loss may occur. Because gastroenteritis is so common and some pet owners have to face it numerous times in their pets’ lives, many people are not in a hurry to rush in to the vet office. One of the most common questions I am asked by worried owners over the phone regards to the best course of action in case of gastroenteritis. As a rule of thumb, I have to recommend consulting your vet with any change in your pet’s health condition. In a simple case of gastroenteritis, in which the animal vomits once or twice and has diarrhea but is acting healthy otherwise (good level of energy,still has appetite etc.) you may try stop feeding it for 24 hours to rest the digestive system. Make sure your pet has constant access to fresh water to prevent dehydration. After 24 hours, providing that the diarrhea and vomiting have subsided, you can try to offer the animal a small

Take a hike in local parks The public is invited to take part a series of interpretive hikes in different Central Okanagan Regional Parks beginning Saturday, May 25. The Take a Hike program will begin at Kalamoir Regional Park, led by a regional parks interpreter as a guide for finding useful and unique plant species. This outing will begin at 9 a.m. with participants meeting at the lower waterfront parking lot off Collens Hill Road in West Kelowna.

amount of a low fat, easily digestible diet such as rice with boiled chicken flesh (without the bones, skin, salt or any other spices), pasta, or boiled egg. You can also consider using a commercial food carried by veterinarians that it designed for animals with digestive problems. This food is available in both canned or dry forms. In the first day you should offer the food in small amounts every three

to four hours. Gradually over the next two to three days, if the animal tolerates the food well and the stool is forming back to normal consistency, decrease the frequency of the feeding and increase the amount of food in each feeding. When the pet is back to normal do not switch to its normal diet abruptly, it is better to mix it over a few days to prevent recurrence of the diarrhea. If there is no improve-

ment in the pet’s condition after 24 hours fasting, it would probably be better to go and see your veterinarian right away. Please note that overweight cats are not allowed to be fasted. Depriving food from fat cats can cause severe liver damage. Other reasons for contacting your vet right away would be presence of blood in the stool or if the diarrhea is also accompanied by other sick-

ness symptoms such as lethargy, fever, vomiting, weight loss or any other concerning condition. Repeated vomiting as a single symptom, without diarrhea is actually more concerning and requires medical assessment. Simple gastroenteritis may be just a simple and transient condition that may be treated at home with a diet change, but often the causative agent is more complicated and

may require a specific medical treatment. In most cases, when the reason for the condition gets diagnose early, the prognosis is good. However, if the condition persists and is left untreated, it can lead to severe or life threatening consequences. Moshe Oz operates the Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital at 2476 Westlake Rd.

e all know that exercise is good for us, but in particular for seniors it is one of the best things you can do yourself to enhance your quality of life. About 60 per cent of people over age 64 are considered sedentary. An inactive lifestyle causes older adults to lose ground in areas that are important for staying healthy, happy and independent. Don’t worry about exercise being too strenuous—it is actually a greater risk not to exercise. Even moderate physical activity can improve the health of those who are frail or who have diseases that accompany aging. Exercising regularly produces long-term benefits, and improves health for some who already have diseases and disabilities. While surfing the Internet this past week, I came across this list of 60 good reasons to exercise and thought I would share with my readers.

Ancient Greek Day at AME

By Ashley Have you ever wondered what it would be like in ancient Greece? To eat their food? To wear their clothes? To participate in their sports? Two weeks ago Anne McClymont Elementary school hosted their annual ancient cultures day. For weeks, the grade seven students had been making poster boards, powerpoints and models on ancient Greece to showcase in the library. Teachers and parent volunteers worked hard to create stations that showcased what life in ancient Greece would be like. Parent volunteers planned an amazing lunch for all of the grade seven students. Ancient cultures day is an event held for the grade sevens each year. This is a day for the grade sevens to dress up in costumes from their ancient culture and showcase projects that they have been working on for over a month.

The day started out by breaking the grade sevens into groups. The first group went to the staff room to engage in a baking exercise with Ms. Mather’s student teacher, Miss. Rutter. There they baked shortbread cookies that were drizzled with chocolate. The students got to measure out ingredients, mix the batter, roll the cookies into shapes and decorate them with chocolate designs of their choice. The second group started with the art station with Miss. Dhami. There they got to make ancient Greek mosaics out of plasticine squares that will be showcased on a bulletin board in the school. Some of the mosaics featured , “Medusa the Gorgon”, “Aphrodite’s golden apple” and “Mount Olympus.”

Dressing up in all of our ancient Greek costumes was the most memorable part of my experience because it was fun to see us trying to live for a day as the Ancient Greeks would. -Steven

The best part of the day for me was the plasticine Greek art station. I made a Spartan helmet. My most memorable moment was crashing during the chariot race during the Olympic games station. -Eric

I enjoyed Being Zeus in the tent the most because it let you explain who you were and the kids seemed very interested and they asked questions. The most memorable part of the day was sitting in the gym eating the Greek food with all our friends of different classes. -Harrison.D

The third group started out in the gym, participating in the Greek Olympics with Miss.Morgan. The group was broken into three city-states; Athens, Sparta and Corinth. The teams created team cheers and participated in fun and safe versions of javelin throw, discus, chariot racing, relay races and wrestling (thumb wrestling). As each team participated they received points for how they placed in the Olympics. All participating teams got Rocket candy for their efforts. All grade seven students participated in all the activities unless they decided to give up a station and be a tour guide or goddess in the library. Throughout the day all of the teachers signed up their classes to tour through the ancient Greek museum

April 2013

(the library). In the library the tour guides gave small groups a rundown of the projects and taught them about what they knew on the subject. Students that had done a god or goddess for their project practiced a script and performed a skit in front of the students before or after they had toured the museum. The skit informed students on what they were god or goddess of, what their symbol was and any other important information. At the lunch hour all grade seven students went into the gym where a Greek luncheon had been organized by a group of parent volunteers. The students had chicken skewers, potatoes, four different choices of salads, pita bread, cookies and lemon water. After lunch students went to the last station of the day. In all ancient cultures day was a fun and informational event for both the grade sevens and all the other students who visited the library. Thank you to all of the teachers and parents who made this day possible.

I am going to remember how all the younger kids looked at me when I told them all about Ancient Greece, as a tour guide. They were looking like they thought I was an actual tour guide and that I was actually teaching them something! -Hanna.P I thought the best part was leading people through the library because it felt good to teach kids about a subject that they didn’t know very well. -Matt

Just the whole day was memorable because people’s faces made me smile because of all the hard work and dedication. It was amazing. I’m going to miss this. I wish I could do this again! -Sean

Local author to launch new book in Kelowna Kelowna writer and former Capital News columnist Julie Cosgrave will sign copies of her new novel at Chapters Orchard Park on Saturday, April 27, from noon to 4 p.m. Cosgrave’s bi-weekly Capital News column Homewords, covered issues from urban design to interior decoration and included more than 50 feature stories about Okanagan homes. Her novel, titled Objects Of Affection, focuses on the subject of home as well, exploring our attachment to place and the “architecture of happiness.” One local reviewer calls Objects Of Affection, “…a delightful and delicately detailed novel.” Highly regarded Kirkus Reviews says the book has: “…humour, surprise and warmth…filled with people who ring true with their own strength and flaws…handled with grace and wit.” B.C. writer Loranne Brown, whose

book The Handless Maiden was nominated for the prestigious Dublin-IMPAC award, says Objects Of Affection possesses “style and flair…real substance.” Cosgrave says she was gratified and delighted recently when more than 700 readers entered for a chance to win copies of the book on GoodReads, a readers and writers website . Cosgrave, whose work appears in magazines and newspapers, created a well-regarded documentary on town squares which aired nationally on CBC Radio’s The Current. She recently completed a spec film script and is at work on another novel, Gathering Fruit, which is set in Lake Country. In addition to Chapters, Objects of Affection is available at Mosaic Books in downtown Kelowna, and soon at the Okanagan Regional Library.

Start making ‘tracks’ at local park There’s still time to sign up and get active with the free Tracks Walking Club. The beginner walking program is underway and runs Monday and Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. (no walk Victoria Day May 20) until June 5. 

Club members and walking leader will gradually increase the duration of their walks along the Mission Creek Greenway and in Mission Creek Regional Park to 90 minutes by the end of the nine week program. Members also receive

a walking journal, walking tips, seminars and motivational tips to keep them moving. ‘Tracks’ is a registered Hearts in Motion Walking Club with the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation. For more information call 250-469-6140.

National Volunteer Week offers chance to say thanks for support The Canadian Red Cross celebrates National Volunteer Week and thanks the more than 22,000 volunteers who deliver programs and services across the country. In British Columbia, volunteers actively help people in need by providing services such as disaster relief and recovery, health equipment loans, violence and abuse prevention education, injury prevention training, supporting families with children in B.C. Children’s Hospital, and promoting humanitarian issues. “After I took an early retirement, I wanted to find a hands-on way to do volunteer work,” said Joanne McKechnie, disaster management volunteer. “I find volunteering with the Canadian Red Cross to be a very meaningful way to serve.” McKechnie, a retired population health specialist, has volunteered with Red Cross for more than five years. When she’s not donating her time to the Red Cross, McKechnie spends quality time with her three grandchildren and also works as a glass artist, creating functional and artistic glassware out of her studio in Kelowna. “Volunteers are the backbone of the Red Cross and serve at all levels of the organization,” said Kimberley Nemrava, Canadian Red Cross Director of B.C. & Yukon. “I am continually impressed by the dedication and compassion of our volunteers, as well as the skills and experience they bring to the Red Cross. “We are very fortunate to have so many high calibre volunteers providing leadership and service; we would not be able to help so many people in need without them.” As the world’s largest humanitarian movement, the Red Cross/Red Crescent has close to 100 million volunteers in 187 countries around the world. Canadian Red Cross volunteers have worked as part of this movement for more than 100 years

NEWS ▼ GARDENING

Do your homework before sticking a plant in the ground I do refer to this advice often but I believe it is one of the most important principles in gardening and landscaping so it bears saying again and again—“right plant, right place.” Many of you will be shopping for plants to enhance your landscape and I advise you to take time to research prior to making your choices. The first thing you might do is read the tag that is attached to the

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett plant. This is helpful as a loose guideline, but remember many of these tags are written for climates and conditions other than ours.

It is so important to get some reliable local knowledge of trees and shrubs to learn just how large a species will get and what conditions it does best in. Another way to do it is to take time and go into some established neighbourhoods where you will find out just how large some of these plants can get. For instance, check out the London plane trees and notice they can

get to 80-feet tall in no time flat. Norway maples as well as certain oaks and horse chestnuts will also get out of hand and have no place in a small yard. There are some trees that are considered small but most of these can reach 25 feet or more in height. The showy mountain ash, Japanese maple, Katsura and flowering plum are a few species that will do for small-

er spaces and there are several flowering shrubs that are sometimes grafted onto a standard trunk to form small trees that fit the bill. Examples of these are Nishiki willow, Miss Kim lilacs and ninebark. Size is just one factor to consider when choosing a tree or shrub for the garden. It must be winter hardy for our area and nurseries do have a habit of bringing in marginal

e& s u b a from g n i r e f f p... is su l r e e h k r r u o w yo Your co She asks for n. o i t a l o s i

plants that won’t make it through the winter. I have seen this often in cold prairie areas where sellers like to push the envelope but it happens everywhere. I don’t blame people for trying marginal plants. I have a laurel and an Acuba in my garden and I know if we have an unusually cold winter I may lose them. I’m fine with that because I’m having fun, but the average purchaser wants more reliability, so again good local knowledge is important in this case. Our soil conditions tend to be on the alkaline side so plants such as rhododendrons and blueberries need special attention to acidify the planting area on a regular basis. Exposure is also a consideration especially when it comes to shrubs. Planting a sun loving

plant in the shade will only be a discouraging experience. Think about all of the above when choosing a new plant for the garden and you won’t be disappointed. ••• The Kelowna Garden Club annual plant sale take place at the Guisachan Heritage Garden, 1050 Cameron Rd., on Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be perennials, annuals, grasses, bulbs, vegetables, small shrubs, trees and much, much more for sale.

Roller Derby keeps picking up players and fans

Kevin Parnell

STAFF REPORTER

It was a weekend of firsts as the Okanagan Roller Derby Association (OKRDA) kicked off its house season with an entertaining bout at Kelowna’s Memorial Arena on Saturday night. It was the first time the three-team OKRDA had ever played one of its bouts in Memorial Arena as well as the first time several players had skated within the OKRDA, which has grown from an idea and a handful of skaters in 2009 to close to 60 skaters this season. “We started out with four or five girls who wanted to play and we started at the Peachland Community Centre,” said OKRDA president Christina Ferreira, who skates under the name Moxie Crue. “We’re very happy with the way the league has grown. It’s grown much faster than we expected and so because of that we’ve had to have a look at the league and make a few changes.” One of those changes was hitting the floor at Memorial Arena as the OKRDA house league will play its bouts at Memorial as opposed to the Sunplex where most of the roller derby bouts had been held prior to this season. Close to 350 people took in Saturday’s season opener, won by the Bad Apple Betties, who skated

past the K-City Rollers in convincing fashion. The number of fans in attendance was one of the reasons for the move to Memorial, which can seat more fans. The Sunplex will still be used for the league, which along with its scheduled house league games, will also host bouts against other B.C. roller derby teams on occasion. After growing rapidly since starting in 2009,

Bad Apple Betty General Discomfort (left) picks up speed under the close watch of referee The Wiz in Saturday’s roller derby bout in Kelowna. this season the OKRDA has taken a step back to grow the skills of the players who are coming out. The league has shelved its competitive travel squad known as the Peach

Tarts and instead is focussing on skill development through the summer. “We decided we needed to take a step back and work on developing our skills because we want to

be a team that competes instead of being the team that gets beat all the time,” said Ferreira. “We want to grow our skills within our house teams first. That’s really important to us and for our fans who can come out and watch competitive bouts.” The OKRDA will also hold its annual recruiting drive for new players called Fresh Meat where people interested in the sport can come out. That will take place May 25 at Stuart Park, a regular practice venue for the league. There will be three more bouts this year at Memorial including the OKRDA championship bout to be played July 20. Ferreira says they are looking forward to another fun season with more growth expected in the sport which features women from all walks of life. She says that’s part of the draw to the sport. “There is no judgements, we have all body shapes and sizes and it’s really welcoming, it’s almost like a sisterhood,” she said. “You really feel welcome and embraced by all the girls in the league. We have such a variety: We have stay at home moms, lawyers, graphic designers...we have such a mix and tons of people who probably would have never met in their life, if not for this sport.” There is more information at www.okrd.ca. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Rest helps OC defeat VIU A long trip on Saturday morning didn’t exactly agree with the Okanagan College Coyotes baseball team, which left Kelowna at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, heading for a double-header on Saturday afternoon in Nanaimo against Vancouver Island University. It was all Vancouver Island in the two games on Saturday as VI blasted the Coyotes 10-0 and 11-2 with OC making a total of seven errors and putting together just seven hits combined. A good sleep and OC turned the tables on Vancouver Island on Sunday, bouncing back to pound its Nanaimo rivals 5-0 and 10-1 to earn a split of the four game series. Pitcher Tanner Collins took matters into his own hands on Sunday morning, allowing just two hits and striking out 11 VI hitters to earn the win in a dominating performance. Dallas Senger and Bryan Elias each had a pair of hits for the Coyotes in the win.

In the series closing game Sunday afternoon Braden Heyland earned the win on the mound, scattering five hits and striking out five in a 10-1 win. Garrett Wiese drove in a pair of runs for the Coyotes while Tyler Pentland, Ryo Shishido and Aiden Mcvea also had runs batted in for the Coyotes. Reliever Marcus Drewry saw action in both Sunday wins as he didn’t allow a run or a hit in five innings of combined work. The Coyotes will continue its long absence from the home field this coming weekend as they travel to Calgary to play two games with the University of Calgary and two against Thompson Rivers, also in Calgary. The team will return to Elks Stadium for a four game series with VIBI on May 4 and 5.

Brendan Urban held the hot hand as the Kelowna Raiders beat the Armstrong Shamocks in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse opener for both teams. Urban scored five times as the Raiders dumped the Rocks 10-7 Friday night at the NorVal Centre in Armstrong. Patrick McMillan scored twice an added an assist in the win, while Cody Teichrob, Evan Helgesen and Kevin

Hogan added singles. Tanner Belsham made 28 saves in the Kelowna net. Willy Haney scored twice for Armstrong. The Raiders were in Penticton Monday night to take on the South Okanagan Flames. A final score wasn’t available at press time. The Raiders will play their home opener Thursday night at Memorial against the Kamloops Venom.

SENIOR RAIDERS

The Kamloops Rattlers have the Kelowna Raiders’ number so far in Okanagan senior men’s lacrosse action. With just 11 players and one goalie at their disposal the Rattlers defeated Kelowna for the second week in a row, 8-5 on Friday night at Memorial Arena. Goaltender Mike Smith of Kamloops had an outstanding game, blocking Kelowna’s big

guns all evening except for the solid play of Jordan Innes who scored a hat trick in the losing cause. Kamloops’ Donahue brothers and captain Mark Jurista, blasted four goals past Kelowna goalie Ryan Brabander to take a solid 4-1 lead after the first. Kelowna clawed its way back in the third to twice get to within two goals but was held back by Smith’s strong play in net. Netting goals for

Kamloops were Riley Donahue and Russel McIntosh with two each, with Shawn Donahue, Nate Akins, Jesse Wessell and Mark Jurista each each tallied once. In addition to three goals by Innes, Jacob Illichmann and Ryan Phillips also scored for Kelowna. The Raiders are back in action Friday as they visit the Armstrong Shamrocks.

Weather curtails headto-head battle between Mt. Bou and KSS It was a good weekend of high school soccer for several Kelowna clubs at a 24 team tournament at the University of Victoria on the weekend. Both the Mount Boucherie Bears and Kelowna Secondary School senior girls teams played well at the event, featuring most of the top senior girls schools in the province. The Bear and Owls both lost in semi-final games at the tournament and would have faced each other in a game to decide third and fourth position. However with weather concerns for the trip back home, the teams decided it was better to cancel the game and head home. The teams will likely get a crack at each other this coming weekend when KSS hosts its invitational soccer tournament. As for the Victoria weekend, the Bears earned its trip to the semifinal with three straight wins. MBSS opened with a

4-1 win over South Delta, the team that won the tournament last season. Breanna Anderson and Haylee Lakovic each scored twice in the game to lead the offensive attack. Against Parkland Secondary from Victoria, the Bears won 6-2 as Lakovic put home four goals with singles coming from Olivia Biccum and finally Jordan Tassone. In an incredibly physical battle between two good teams the Bears edged Burnsview Secondary from Delta 2-1 as Tassone and Lakovic did the scoring in a win that sent the Bears to the semifinal against Lambrick Park from Victoria. The Bears controlled

possession of the ball during the semi final and opened the scoring with Lacovic set up Tassone for a 1-0 lead. But Lambrick Park scored with five minutes left, which sent the game to a shootout where the Lambrick Park goalie made some good stops and the Delta school went on to win. Bears midfielder Laina Burton, a Grade 12 who played tremendously well, was named the MBSS tournament MVP. KSS also made it to the semi-final in the tournament but lost to Glenlyon Norfolk from Victoria. The Owls will host an eight team soccer tournament beginning Friday. KSS, MBSS, RSS and OKM are all taking part.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen spring sprouts Most people who love asparagus don’t care much for it from the can or frozen. It’s just nothing like the crisp, barely-cooked freshly-sproutedfrom-spring-soil version. And, that means there’s only a window of a few weeks in spring when you can really enjoy fresh B.C. asparagus, at its best. I don’t know about your kitchen, but mine goes through a wide variety of asparagus experiences at this time of year as we enjoy it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We unearth all our favourite recipes for this delicate sprout and have them all in these few weeks when local asparagus is ready and available. Coincidentally, it overlaps with the short season of another favourite food of mine: fresh, B.C. Spot Prawns, which are only harvested in May and June off the coast of this province. Luckily, they can be frozen and enjoyed later in the year, with much better results than asparagus, but they’re still much nicer when they’re fresh from the sea. And, shrimp and asparagus are quite delicious together, especially stir-fried. Both are also good in Indian-inspired dishes, and my favourite local Indian restaurant, Poppadoms, is ramping up their selection of Indianinspired cocktails, with the launch of a second instalment later this week. Bartender and owner Harry Dosanj presents 10 new offerings that fuse Indian flavours with local fruits, herbs and spirits such as the Chaitini, the Mangalore, Temple of Doom, Bollywood Smash and Tamarind Margarita. Enjoy some of the best East Indian food you’ve ever eaten as well. Poppadoms is on Highway 97 at McCurdy Road. Go to: www.poppadoms.ca for more details. And, for more recipes like the following, pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, which is available wherever books are sold, as well as at local wine stores such as the VQA shop in the Kelowna Wine Museum on Ellis Street.

Asparagus Salad Steam a half- pound to a pound (220 g to 454 g) of trimmed asparagus for five or six minutes or so, or until just tender. Drain well and cut it into bite-sized pieces. My colleague, wine expert John Schreiner, recommends a riesling icewine with this dish. You could even poach a few B.C. Spot Prawns to serve alongside…

Sesame Shrimp & Asparagus

Fresh B.C. Spot Prawns should begin to be available for their short season at the beginning of May, for just a few weeks. This is slightly amended from the one in my book, where renowned wine expert John Schreiner added margin notes recommending local 1/3 c. (75 ml) sugar wines with many of my recipes. He suggested pairing freshly-ground black pepper this dish with the Intrigue Wines Riesling, or Tantalus roasted sesame seeds or Quails’ Gate. Pork or scallops would also be delicious in this Chop walnuts, pecans, or oth- dish, instead of the shrimp or prawns. er nuts finely. Mix together with remaining ingredients and pour over 2 tsp. (10 ml) minced ginger chopped asparagus. Add a sprinkle 1 small onion of freshly-ground black pepper. 1 small zucchini Serve immediately or marinate 1 celery stalk for two or three hours before serv1 bunch Shanghai bok choy ing slightly chilled, garnished with 5 mushrooms toasted sesame seeds. 1/2 sweet red pepper Do not marinate overnight. 1 tsp. dark soy sauce This can be served with tooth1/4 c. (60 ml) water picks or little spoons as an appetizer, or at the table. 1/2 lb. (227 g) large shrimp 1 tbsp. (15 ml) minced ginger 2 tsp.(10 ml) dried, fermented black beans 1 tbsp. (15 ml) light soy sauce

1/2 c. (125 ml) water 1 tbsp. (15 ml) cornstarch 1 tbsp. (15 ml) cold water toasted sesame seeds

Halve the onion and slice it into strips, then chop the other vegetables into bite-sized pieces, or a bit smaller. Shell prawns, if necessary and mince ginger. Drizzle a little oil into a hot wok and swirl it around. Then add the ginger and onions and stir fry for a couple of minutes. Add the other vegetables, one at a time, stir frying for a minute or so with each addition. Drizzle with soy and add a little water and steam for a minute or two. Remove to a bowl or the serving dish. Drizzle a little more oil into the wok and add the ginger and prawns. Let them cook for a minute, then turn them over for a minute more. Add black beans and stir-fry, then add light soy sauce and water and mix in. Combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl and add to the liquid in the bottom of the wok, stirring until it thickens. Return vegetables to the wok and mix everything together. Serve hot, garnished with toasted sesame seeds. Serves 2 or 3.

ADULT LABRADOR RETRIEVER CROSS NEUTERED MALE

Coby came to us as a stray and no owner has been located. Coby is a young dog which we consider to be a ‘diamond in the rough’. He is a very smart dog and has a ton of energy to burn off. Our Volunteer Dog Walkers are working with him to help him develop better leash walking habits and he is coming along nicely. He knows how to “Sit” but is easily distracted. We truly believe that Coby can be quick to learn with the right owner - a strong pack leader is essential. Coby loves to play in our backyard. Although he has not been mixed with other dogs, we think he would love a canine companion and it would do him well to have that role model.

He is an obedient young dog and likes to be with people, but he also enjoys romping in our backyard. He is surely a small ball of energy and will require lots of exercise - a good walking companion for sure. His coat is silky and will need daily grooming in order for it to stay in prestine conditon.

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 ‘somewhat’ shy nature a home with no young children would suit me best. If you would like to meet me, please ask Staff for an introduction.

Adopt a Pet and take

Could there be a cuter face!! Bru is an active puppy who loves to go hiking/camping or running with his new owner. He would be just as content to hang out with you, but only after he’s been exercised. He is very smart and would take no time to be the star of puppy obedience classes. He loves to run around our backyard and already comes when you call him. He will need further house training, but again, he is smart and should pick up the routine quickly with patience and consistency from his new family. We would prefer he go to a home who has experience with an energetic breed dog because they do need extra stimulation to keep their body and mind challenged.

We do not know anything of his background so you would be starting with a ‘clean slate’ with Wilbur. Since being here, we have found him to be calm, listens well and has good leash walking manners. Wilbur enjoys time sniffing and checking out our backyard and comes back to us when we call his name. We would prefer he go to a home that has experience with the Sharpei breed.

NEWS ▼ CELIAC DISEASE

Awareness month draws attention to often overlooked ailment Celiac disease is an auto-immune disease in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. As a result, the body is unable to absorb nutrients such as carbohydrates,

fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for good health. An estimated one per cent of Canadians are affected by celiac disease, and a stunning 90 per cent of these cases remain undiagnosed. Symptoms of celiac

disease can range from gastrointestinal distress to migraines to extremely itchy skin rashes, or there may be no overt symptoms at all. For celiacs to continue to ingest gluten puts them at risk of serious associated medical conditions

Putting to rest some misleading myths about vehicle care Vehicle Myth #1: To maintain my warranty I can only have my car serviced at a dealership Service at a dealer is not mandatory to keep your warranties in effect. Maintenance may be done by any qualified service facility or person who is skilled in automotive service. Keep all receipts as proof of completion, and have the service provider fill out the maintenance

record. The maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual specifies how often you should have your car serviced and what areas need attention. It’s essential that you have your car serviced as scheduled to retain its high level of dependability and safety, to protect the environment, and to enhance and maintain your vehicle’s value.

Independent service technicians are qualified to meet your service requirements. Build a long-term relationship with your service technician to ensure maintenance is done on a timely basis. *** Vehicle Myth #2: Paint chips and nicks don’t affect my warranty.

dents, scratches and collision damaged panels inspected and repaired. When the exterior finish is “broken” through damage to the body panel, the integrity of the bond between the metal and its protective “skin” is compromised. This can easily lead to moisture “creeping” under the paint and primer surface, causing rust to start to form. Left to the elements over time, the rust will spread. New cars have a minimum five-year rust perforation warranty. Unprotected panels that cause rust will not be covered by the manufacturers’ warranty. The rust caused by nicks and chips can also impact lease returns. You must minimize the damage by chips and nicks to maintain your lease agreement. Most chip and nick repairs cost less money than most people imagine. Cover paint chips as quickly as possible. For a quick fix until you can get some touch-up supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch. Touch-up paint can be found for virtually every vehicle ever built, including antiques.

gents, abrasives or additives. And almost half of motorists don’t wax their vehicle. Waxing at least twice a year is recommended for maximum protection. If you are not maintaining your vehicle’s exterior, you could be leaving money on the table at trade-in time. It’s a fact, a clean, well-maintained car can be worth up to 50 per cent more than one in ‘fair’ condition, according to the Kelley Blue Book. What to keep in mind when it comes to do-ityourself car washing: • Don’t wash cars in direct sunlight • Do wash cars in shade or in cooler temperatures in the early morning or late afternoon • Don’t use dish detergent Do use a formulated car wash • Do fill your bucket with warm water • Do use a soft terrycloth towel or washing mitt • Do spray the car often with water • Don’t scrub the car all at once. Do complete one section at a time, rinsing repeatedly to prevent the

soap from drying on the paint • Do use soft terrycloth towels or scratch-free fabric to dry the vehicle • Don’t neglect waxing the vehicle • Do prep the car for waxing, using cleaner/polish to remove contaminants . The myth of not having to wax your car because you have a clearcoat finish is just that, a myth. Clear-coat finish is only as thick as a piece of paper and can become damaged from nicks, chips, the effects of sunlight, UV radiation, acid rain, salt, dirt and air pollution. Car wax helps to protect the car from rust seeping into to minor nicks and chips. *** Vehicle Myth #4: Vehicle technology today is so advanced I don’t need to worry about emissions.

Myths from A42 greenhouse gases have stayed just right for humans, animals and plants to survive. But today we are having problems keeping this balance. Because we burn fossil fuels to heat our homes, run our cars, produce electricity, and manufacture all sorts of products, we are adding more greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Loose gas caps, under-inflated tires, faulty thermostats, worn spark plugs, malfunctioning engine controls, and poor wheel alignment are some of the examples of conditions that are harmful to the environment and cost consumers millions of dollars in wasted fuel each day. Keep your vehicle well maintained. A poorly maintained engine can use up to 50 per cent more fuel and produce 50 per cent more CO2 than one that runs properly. Neglecting to replace worn-out oil and filters results in poor engine performance, higher fuel consumption and, possibly, severe engine damage. Consult the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual. An air filter that is clogged with dirt, dust and bugs chokes off the air and creates a “rich” mixture—too much gas being burned for the amount of air, which wastes gas and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 per cent and reduce GHG emissions. People often assume that emissions repairs can be expensive, but a tire gauge can cost as little as $6. Check your tire pressure at least once a month. Maintaining the correct tire pressure could reduce your GHGs by at least 1/8 tonne each year and save $50 in fuel costs. Yet, 70 per cent of vehicles have at least one tire that is over or under-inflated. And remember, tire tread depth is important in summer too for safety reasons. Without proper treads, you can hydroplane in a downpour. Be sure you have sufficient treads on your tires. Don’t idle. Idling for 10 minutes a day can produce about a quarter tonne of CO2 emissions each year and cost you about $70 in wasted fuel. It is a myth to say that it is cheaper and more fuel efficient to idle the vehicle

www.kelownacapnews.com A43

CAR CARE than to stop and restart. It’s more fuel efficient to stop and re-start. Remove roof racks when not in use. Even empty racks increase aerodynamic drag and boost fuel consumption. If the racks are permanent, factory-installed units, the extra fuel cost will be minimal. Not only will maintaining your vehicle save you money, it will also help you to protect the environment by reducing emissions. *** Vehicle Myth #5: Warm weather means less car worries. A fairly common household disaster is flooding of the laundry area due to a split hose on a washing machine. Also vulnerable to a similar disaster is your car. A bulging radiator hose, carrying hot water (coolant) under pressure, can rupture. Cooling system neglect is cited as a principal reason for mechanical failure of a vehicle. In addition to the danger and inconvenience of a breakdown, the damage to the engine and transmission can add up to thousands of dollars. Discovering a leak-

ing radiator, hose connection, a sticking thermostat or other cooling system component that’s on “borrowed time” can save the life of your engine. Your cooling system includes the following items that should be checked: radiator cap, anti-freeze, thermostat, drive belt and radiator fan. Hot weather is often the true culprit behind car-battery trouble. Summer is the season for major car-battery problems. Heat, not cold, shortens battery life. Excessive heat and overcharging are the two main reasons for shortened battery life. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, damaging the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate. That’s slow death for a battery. Keep the top of the battery clean. Dirt becomes a conductor, which drains battery power. Further, as corrosion accumulates on battery terminals it becomes an insulator, inhibiting current flow. Always replace a battery with one that’s rated

at least as high as the one originally specified. *** Vehicle Myth #6: If it’s not broke, don’t fix it or No news is good news. Vehicles need to be serviced even when the “Check Engine Light” isn’t on. You should be following the maintenance schedule as outlined in your vehicle owner’s manual. Your vehicle owner’s manual maintenance schedule specifies how often you should have your car serviced and what areas need attention. It is essential that you have your car serviced as scheduled to retain its high level of dependability and safety, to protect the environment, and to enhance and maintain your vehicle’s value. For example, the “Check Engine Light” will not come on when your hoses or belts need replacing. Replacing frayed or worn parts according to the original equipment schedule, means your vehicle is reliable and you won’t end up with costlier repairs. If you are diligent about having your oil changed regularly, but
