Buddy Tavares says he is “punished every day” for Const. Geoff Mantler’s decision to kick him in the head and suffers panic attacks every time he sees a police officer. “I relive that regretful time in my life with every headache…very time I see a cop,” he told the court during Mantler’s sentencing hearing Tuesday. Tavares was recovering from a brain injury caused by a motorcycle accident when the police officer delivered a hard blow to his face during a poorly executed arrest in January 2011 that was caught on video. “I lost a great deal of recovery the moment I was assaulted by Geoff Mantler,” he said. “I still ask every day why he did this to me and my Geoff Mantler family.” “Mr. Tavares was a completely innocent individual here,” Crown counsel Will Burrows told the court. “It was very lucky that Mr. Tavares didn’t die considering his frail condition.” Mr. Tavares, he said, “had not the foggiest idea” why police stopped him that day. What police were told, however, was that they were dealing with a shots fired complaint involving an ex-employee of the Harvest Golf Club. Mantler believed he was dealing with a homicidal man, defence lawyer Neville McDougall said, and it was only later that he learned that Tavares did not pose a threat and was just shooting at geese at the golf course. With the limited information Mantler had at the time of the arrest, he “honestly believed that his life might be in danger,” McDougall said. So when Mantler saw Tavares start to rise slightly from his knees during the arrest, he was concerned Tavares would pull a gun from his waistband, a common place for people to hide weapons, the court heard.   Mantler then chose to kick Tavares in an attempt to See Mantler A10

Tourism Kelowna CEO Nancy Cameron noted that Kelowna’s food roots run deep, but she said it is time now to share what we have with tourists, particularly as there’s a growing demand for locally-produced food. She thanked the province’s Buy Local program and the Investment Agriculture Foundation for the $100,000 grant received this spring to expand the Farm to Table program, increase visitor awareness of the program and improve its interactive web-

IAF executive director Peter Donkers explained that by building local value chains money is kept in the local economy to grow. “Tourists want to buy local; to experience the area they’re visiting,” he

said. That’s why businesses around farmers’ markets around the province are benefiting from market locations, as people visit the markets not only to shop, but for the experience of what’s grown locally, he added.

Although we grow the best food right here, we’re shy about telling people, says a local chef who has eaten in top restaurants all over the world. Instead, it’s time we let the world know, says chef Mark Filatow, a gold medal plates award-winning local chef who focuses his energy on preparing food sourced from as close to his kitchen as possible. He was speaking at a reception Sunday to celebrate Tourism Kelowna’s Farm to Table program that connects farmers and chefs to create and serve local foods. Filatow’s Waterfront Restaurant and Wine Bar Tuesday picked up gold for the Best Okanagan restaurant in the 24th annual Vancouver Magazine restaurant awards, for the fourth year in a row. Bouchons, a French restaurant in the same Sunset Drive neighbourhood as Filatow’s won silver this year in the competition, while chef Rod Butters’ downtown RauDZ Regional Table won Bronze. In the Best Winery dining category, Miradora at Tinhorn Creek won Gold, while West Kelowna’s Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate won Silver and the Terrace Restaurant at Mission Hill won Bronze. All espouse the philosophy of creating dish-

es using fresh, local food seasonally, harvested close to the dining table— which fits right in with the Farm to Table program. “My job is to put it on a plate and to now wreck what you have produced,” Filatow commented to the farmers in attendance who enjoyed such bites as mushrooms with garlic aioli and a sliver of asparagus on a bite-sized piece of homemade bread and glasses of local VQA wines from The View Winery in East Kelowna and CedarCreek Estate Winery in the Mission.

Downtown development plan expected to attract investment Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

It only cost Kelowna $3,500 but the city is hoping its new “downtown prospectus” will generate millions in development and investment in the downtown core in the years to come. The package, complete with pictures and brochures showing a vibrant, active lakefront city with young people enjoying themselves, is aimed at putting Kelowna’s downtown development potential into context for what the city’s executive director of business development, Jim Paterson, calls “destination” retailers. “With so much happening downtown, we want to build on that,” said Paterson. “Success breeds success.” The prospectus was the first task Paterson undertook after being named to the position by Kelowna council late last year. It was completed in time for the Downtown Kelowna Association, which was looking for such a package, to take to the annual International Council of Shopping Centres gathering in Whistler in late January. The gathering is the place to be for any municipality, business organization or group trying to lure retailers and investors to their area. And according to Paterson, the DKA booth, with its continuously changing slideshow of what downtown Kelowna has to offer, was a big hit. Paterson said he does not expect the push to market downtown will produce results overnight but he said it is helping address some of what he calls the myths surrounding the perception of Kelowna in other areas of the country. “At the city, we have to play the long game,” said Paterson who, prior to coming to Kelowna, helped rejuvenate Winnipeg’s downtown.

ALISTAIR WATERS/CAPITAL NEWS

KELOWNA’S executive director of business development, Jim Paterson, with one of the displays created to help local business organizations and area realtors attract potential investors, developers and retailers to the city’s downtown area. He said the myths Kelowna is fighting include: • Kelowna is a sleepy little city, mainly acting as a tourist resort with “beaches and peaches” and little urban development. He said at the Whistler show, many were surprised by the amount of urban development here • Kelowna is overbuilt and there are better places to invest. Paterson said despite public perception, the supply of available condominiums here—once considered a glut—has dwindled and most purchasers now are “real owners,” not the investors and speculators who once were the market • Kelowna’s population is an aging demographic living on fixed incomes. Paterson said while we have our share of seniors, Kelowna remains one of the fastest growing cities in Canada and serves as a retail destination for an estimated market of nearly 400,000 people (including from the north

and south Okanagan and the Kootenays) despite the local area population being just 180,000. There is an estimated $40 million in public investment alone in the downtown in recent years including the current revitalization of the city’s main downtown street, Bernard Avenue; construction of a new Kelowna Yacht Club and expansion of the club’s marina making it the largest of its kind in North America; plans for a new public pier and commercial dock; expansion of Jim Stuart Park; a new parkade; a proposed new tourist information building in City Park and plans for private developments such as the new office tower headquarters for Interior Health and proposals for several highrise offices, commercial and residential towers. With these the city is making its case as a desirable place for investors to consider. While still using the “It’s

happening! Downtown” logo for the changing face of the downtown core it used during the Bernard Avenue revitalization, Paterson said the new sales campaign will switch names to “We Are Kelowna” as the plan roles out. The city has focused much of its attention on the downtown in recent months, but it also plans a similar sales push for the Rutland area as well,said Paterson. That campaign should be ready be early 2014. There it will work with the Uptown Rutland Business Association, as well as the Central Economic Development Commission and commercial realtors. “We have got to the point where we are now comparing ourselves with places like Saskatoon, Regina and even Calgary,” said Paterson, adding recent multi-million additions to Kelowna General Hospital—the $28-million patient care tower and con-

struction of the $380-million Interior Hearth and Surgical Centre—as well as the growth of the UBC Okanagan campus, has helped make Kelowna an even more attractive destination. In recent years, the city has also moved to make downtown an attractive option by providing incentives for developers with inducements such as lower development cost charges than in other parts of the city, a revitalization tax exemption program, rental housing grants across the city, lower parking requirements, cashin-lieu of parking provisions and business and residential property tax rates that the city claims are some of the lowest in B.C. Paterson called them nice incentives but said they will not get the job done on their own.“It has to be a multipronged approach,” he said. The strategy—called Downtown First—is attempting to counter what has been

a sluggish local economy in recent years as a result of the global, national and provincial financial downturn. One of the visuals the strategy uses is an aerial view map of the downtown to put the city in context and highlight proposed and in-progress projects, as well as significant development sites. Included are the large former KSS site, now known as Central Green, and the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative’s 12.7-acre property on Vaughan Avenue in the North End. That property has been sold, but the closing date isn’t until September and details of the deal are not being revealed until it’s complete. It includes the co-operative’s downtown Kelowna packinghouse and offices and the retail store located on Clement Avenue, as well as storage facilities on Vaughn Avenue. The city, however, is expecting the new buyer to come forward with a an application to develop the property. There is also a large former trucking company site next door to the co-operative’s site that is already zoned industrial. Other potential sites include one the city says could be home to a new hotel at Manhattan Drive and Sunset Drive and a larger site that the city wanted to see a new hotel built on in past years across from Prospera Place at the corner of Clement Avenue and Sunset Drive. “Council has made it clear, one of its main objectives is to grow the city’s economy and one way to do that is to market the downtown,” said Paterson. “That is what this strategy is doing.” He said he expects the “Team Kelowna” approach— using the DKA, city, chamber of commerce, economic development commission, commercial realtors and local developers—to do just that.

woods, and in many other western U.S. states, there are mandatory inspections of boats before they can leave or enter a different waterway, in an effort to prevent the spread of both zebra and quagga mussels, invasive species that have already forever altered the Great Lakes. Davis told those attending the workshop a new fish hatchery on Lake Mead had to be shut down because it couldn’t continue to operate under the infestation of quagga mussels. As well, the mussels have gotten into the penstocks and they clog pipes, screens, gates and other equipment at the Hoover, Davis and Parker Dams, she reported, costing millions a year. A ‘Don’t Move a Mussel’ campaign is underway there, while

Halfway measures will get halfway results, warns D.D. Davis, boat inspection trainer in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in Nevada. And once invasive quagga mussels are in your lake, Davis warns they’re there forever. So, she advocates taking severe measures upfront to prevent an infestation, in order to avoid billions of dollars in damage to everything aquatic, from the valley’s ecology to waterworks, bridges, boats and beaches. Davis was one of the speakers at an Aquatic Invasive Species Workshop held in Kelowna Tuesday by the Invasive Species Council of B.C. In her neck of the

other states run similar campaigns to alert boaters and all other water users of the danger of transferring anything from a wakeboard or fishing rod to a boat or scuba gear from one body of water to another without a thorough cleaning and appropriate treatment. Because the Lake Mead area is a half day drive for 30 million people, it’s a busy recreation area, and a popular place for those who enjoy water sports, Davis noted. Compliance with regulations regarding movement of boats is expensive so boaters are not likely to voluntarily comply, she warned, and commercial marinas don’t want to annoy customers, so they can’t be relied upon to ensure compliance, she added.

equipment can cost a quarter million dollars, and it will sit idle without enforcement, she said. All weekend boaters are asked to Clean, Drain and Dry every surface of their boats and equipment, including bilges in order to stop aquatic hitchhikers. The veligers, or microscopic larval stage can last for 27 days in standing water, so protocols to get rid of them are essential before leaving a contaminated water so they are not moved to infest new waters. She advised B.C. to be proactive; to have a strategy ready, to focus on early detection and to learn from other jurisdictions where they already have the invasive mussels and have been trying to control them.

saging and ways of dealing with the problem would help water users to comply with recommendations regarding control and preventing their spread, she said. Boat inspections where boaters are asked where their boat was last and how long it’s been out of the water are needed, she said. She was impressed with the beginning this province has made to pass stringent legislation to prevent the movement of such invasive aliens, and to launch an information campaign to alert people to the dangers of their spread. The good news is, Davis says she’s confident the valley can prevent contamination with the mussel with adequate effort. This provincial government passed new legislation last December amending the Controlled Alien Species Regulation to prevent shipping or transport of a single mussel—alive or dead. Offenders face a penalty of $100,000 or a year in prison, or both. The Conservation Officer Service plans to set up checkpoints in areas such as Osoyoos and Golden to check boats this summer and try to prevent contaminated boats from entering B.C., said Gail Wallin, organizer of the conference and executive-director of the ISCBC. They are working with marinas across the province to inform boaters about the mussels and will mount a multipronged campaign to

nagan Lake. Federal legislation is needed so that inspections could take place at the border, to ensure only decontaminated boats are permitted into Western Canada, but the difficulty is, they’re already in Eastern Canada, so regulations would have to be drafted that only applied to the West. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Cold temperatures caused no significant orchard damage

Judie Steeves

STAFF REPORTER

Freezing temperatures the past couple of nights in some parts of the Okanagan have likely caused some damage to late cherries and early apples, but no widespread damage has been reported. Jim Campbell, tree fruit specialist with the agriculture ministry, explained that after bloom, cherries can take temperatures as low as -2 C, and even a degree colder when there are fruitlets formed, while apple fruitlets can sustain russet damage under freezing temperatures after blossom. However, the most susceptible period is probably over for growers in the southern part of the valley, and temperatures didn’t go that low as an Arctic front moved through the valley early this week. Many grape varietals are in bud break now, at which point the leaves can be damaged by frost, but most vineyards set their wind machines to begin working at temperatures of -.5 C, to avoid damage that can occur at -2 C, he said. Temperatures didn’t go that low in most areas of the valley. At the Kelowna airport, temperatures S that low were recorded in the early hours Wednesday morning, but it’s known to

T n E v E S e L Sa

be in a frost pocket and measures lower temperatures than the surrounding valley. However, cherry grower in East Kelowna, Christine Dendy said she didn’t think her orchard had sustained much damage. She figured further north in the valley and at higher elevations around the valley there could be some damage, but not at her elevation on the benchland. Cherries in the Kelowna area are nearly finished full bloom now, she said. The problem is that the pollen tubes can grow in four hours when it’s 20 C, but when it’s colder out, it could take days for that tube to grow down into the pistil of the flower to pollinate. If it’s too long, it might no longer be viable by the time it gets there, she explained. She’s confident however that blossoms pollinated last week will be fine. Blossom time is a few days later than normal due to the cold weather this past while, she said. However, during the summer, with enough warm days in May and June, the trees can catch up so harvest time in July is unaffected. The forecast is for warming weather, with sunny days for the next week, and temperatures that could reach daytime highs of 29 C by Monday, according to Environment Canada.

minor players in the drug trade, and a few were girlfriends or an innocent victim, like a man who was shot in Burnaby after picking up a Bacon brother vehicle to install a car stereo in it. B.C. gang-related killings peaked at 36 in 2009 before dropping to 18 last year. Victims are overwhelmingly men and their average age is 30, according to CFSEU stats. Three-quarters of the bodies are found near the victims’ homes or vehicles. Most (85 per cent) were shot, but eight per cent were viciously beaten, six per cent were stabbed and one victim was burned to death. Also included are key risk factors for ending up in a gang and tips for parents on spotting potential signs of gang involvement.

They include carrying multiple cellphones, having unexplained cash and making frequent brief trips out of the home among the red flags. The report details how police try to keep gangsters out of bars and restaurants to keep them from recruiting new blood, as well as to prevent gang violence. This month the CFSEU said it will publicly identify suspected gangsters where possible as a new tactic to make it more difficult for organized crime to operate. After a gang-related shooting outside a gym in South Surrey, senior officers are also pledging backup for businesses that make gangsters feel unwelcome in their premises.

Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Based on the size of the crowd, the two men and two women vying for the Kelowna-Mission MLA’s job are not “rocking the vote.” Student organizers of an all-candidates meeting at Okanagan College Tuesday evening said they have persuaded 1,100 local college and university students to register to vote in the May 14 election but only 17 people came out to hear what Liberal incumbent Steve Thomson, NDP challenger Tish Lakes, Mike McLoughlin of the B.C. Conservatives and independent Dayleen Van Ryswyk had to say. The quartet, who have already spoken at four all-candidates meetings in the riding in the first 2 1/2 weeks of the campaign, were asked questions mainly about post-secondary education, skills training and transit. They all agreed on the need for more skills training, that students graduating from post-secondary education need help with the debt they amass during their studies and the need to keep education affordable. But they differed on how to do that. Thomson pointed to the government’s record on funding education, especially skills training, highlighting the $28 million investment announced to overhaul Okanagan College’s trades training centre in Kelowna. “I feel we have made significant investments for

generations to come here in the Okanagan,” he said. But Lakes said more needs to be done to help students while they are learning and the NDP would reintroduce a program of grants to help students not incur as much debt while they are at school. “You should be able to get grants every year,” she said. “The amount of debt you are graduating with is outrageous.” She said her party also wants to see better repayment plans for students saddled with high debt. McLoughlin said the government needs to step back and look at how it is funding post-secondary education. He said businesses who benefit from students after they graduate, particularly in trades, should bear part of the costs of training young people at post-secondary educational institutions. He added because the issue includes the federal government, which provides student loans, and banks, which set interest rates, both need to be included in the conversation. He said the Conservatives want to eliminate the carbon tax as that will help stabilize the economy leading to more jobs for college graduates. Van Ryswyk, who called herself the only independent voice in the race, said she would act as the public’s voice and wants to hear what students want and need before representing that view in Victoria. She slammed the gov-

ernment for what she said are plans to cut as much as $46 million from education over the next three years. “That’s not good for students,” she said. She added she would like to see interest rates on student loans reduced so graduates are not leaving school burdened by such a high levels of debt. All four candidates were asked about improved transit in the riding, particularly for students and they all said while it is a city responsibility, it would be a priority for them if elected. The city has said it wants to improve transit from Okanagan College to link with the Rapid Bus system along Highway 97. Currently, improvements to the system have

been made between West Kelowna, downtown and UBC Okanagan. Asked about minimum wage, the three representatives of the political parties in the race said their parties have no plan to raise it if they form the next government. Van Ryswyk said while she would like to see it higher, an increase would have an impact on some businesses in the community and that needs to be considered. As for their top priorities if elected on May 14, Thomson and Van Ryswyk both said it is water, as funding is needed for improvements to water quality in this area. McLoughlin said his first priority is getting more family doctors here and then it would be water. Lakes said housing would be her top priority once the true state of the province’s finances are fully understood. The meeting was put on as part of the Okanagan College Student Union’s Rock The Vote campaign to get more young people out to vote in the provincial election.

Message bad for business

We don’t want you here and we don’t want your dirty money.” That is the message Surrey RCMP’s officer in charge is asking local businesses to deliver to gangsters, following last week’s execution-style murder of Craig Widdifield in a Surrey parking lot. It sounds authoritative, but what police are asking of private citizens poses some disturbing questions about civil liberties and the principle of assuming innocence until guilt is proven,

long held to be a cornerstone of our system of justice. But far more than that, it suggests a veritable downhill run of good intentions, towards a panicky chaos of suspicion, profiling and downright dangerous confrontation. This is not the first time that gang-related murder has intruded on the reputedly peaceful Semiahmoo Peninsula community. These things have come, not by accident, but because those who have chosen to live by unlawful means have also chosen to live in Surrey,

raise children there and patronize local businesses. So, too, have thousands of other people innocent of any crime or criminal association. Precisely how are criminals to differentiated? Surrey RCMP and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit have both pledged backup for businesses that make gangsters unwelcome on their premises—but what that will translate to, in reality, is open to conjecture. It’s one thing when members

of the RCMP and CFSEU hassle known criminals and their associates—it’s their business to know who the bad guys are, after all, and gather the proof to back up their suspicions. What is the rest of the community to do—rely on appearances and hearsay? What’s next—circulating how-to-spota-potential gangster diagrams? It’s in times like these that we need more responsible leadership from our appointed protectors of the peace. —Peace Arch News

Canadians far removed from strife in the Middle East

T

he other day I found myself watching the news on television while peeling a banana. I was immediately ticked off by the fact that half the banana was bruised, despite the fact I’d just bought it two days ago. While venting my frustration about that, on the news came another report about another bomb going off and civilians dying in Syria. That kind of made the whole banana thing not very relevant, but it also revealed what a sheltered existence we enjoy in North America. The recent Boston Marathon act of terrorism was a horrific event, a pointless tragedy by the two misguided brothers responsible and anyone

else who was helping them. The outrage was predictable, but it’s the type of event that goes on in the Middle East almost on a daily basis. People die, we hear the numbers added up, the most recent being 70,000 people killed by the current civil war strife in Syria, but we all carry on without what’s going on there entering our daily mindset. The Syria situation hit home for one Kelowna couple who tried everything they could to get a Syrian mother and friends of theirs out of the

country, but to no avail, her application rejected by immigration officials. But it’s a part of the world that has changed, as the Middle Barry East focus is no longer Gerding about Israel but about Arab groups fighting among each other. Playing scrabble blindfolded would be easier than trying to understand the different sides involved in the Syria conflict. Even though the rest of the world, outside of the North Korea leadership wingnuts, are pretty much getting along, as our new global economy

EDITOR’S NOTE

continues to shatter barriers of mistrust and open lines of communication between people, not just government officials and ruling military generals, we collectively have no answer for the Middle East. Former U.S. president George W. Bush thought he had an answer, invade Iraq and bring democratic calm to that part of world, but his actions had the exact opposite effect. It’s certainly not impossible to think the points generating these conflicts can’t be resolved, that peace thinkers can’t outwit the religious and tribal dogmatic furor that fuels the conflict in these countries. In my lifetime, Northern Ireland’s civil war was put to rest, Israel

and Egypt came to a peaceful resolution of their issues, despite having engaged in three military conflicts between 1948 and 1973. That was thought impossible at one point, that peace, the ability and willingness to co-exists, could be found. I’ve never been to the Middle East, but I aspire to the theory that ordinary people around the world share the same basic aspirations—to have enough feed to eat, a roof over their head, a means to support their family and freedom from religious or ethnic persecution. But how many more people have to die before that dream can be realized in the Middle East? bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

Useless Party up the middle for a win To the editor: While watching the political debate on TV, I couldn’t but feel for the viewers who have to choose a leader based on their performances. The one truism in pol-

itics seems to be: “Don’t give a clear, honest answer to a question,” the other one is: “All my lies aren’t true.” It isn’t any secret that people are fed up with the political system.

Why is it that politicians make all their grandiose promises at election time with our tax dollars to fix the problems that they created in the first place? So, rather than just

complaining without offering a solution, I have decided to give the citizens an alternative. I have unofficially created the Useless Party with the slogan: “Use less, have more.”

I think my party reflects the reality of today’s world. So if you want to do something useful, vote for the Useless Party. Hajime (Harold) Naka, Kelowna

▼ DISAPPOINTING FACILITY

Seniors lose autonomy with move to PAC To the editor: The Letter of the Week entitled Seniors’ Facility Hasn’t Met Promises Made, in the April 26 edition of the Capital News, written by Frank Missan, was both interesting and informative. It explains how the Water Street Senior Centre Society lost its home at the Water Street facility. The society no longer has autonomy over its own facility as it had formerly. Was this City Hall’s intent?

At present, the Water Street Senior Centre Society is one of several tenants at the Parkinson Activity Centre (PAC). To call it a “senior centre” is an injustice to the seniors who used and enjoyed the Water Street Senior Centre. Despite the fact that former Mayor Sharon Shepard stated that there had never been more complaints about a proposed facility when the PAC was in the planning stages, City Hall pursued and implemented its own plans without giving consideration to seniors and their

needs. It seems to me that the City took away the home of the Water Street Senior Centre Society and now it is ‘homeless.’ Is this not a breach of promise imposed on seniors? Will City Hall make amends to seniors and make sorely needed changes to PAC? Time will tell. A disappointed Senior, Rita Clarke, Kelowna

‘Shameful’ youth soccer has no sponsors To the editor: You have a great soccer club in the Okanagan, although the U-13 and U-14 boys did not win against Mountain FC this past weekend. These teams play at the highest youth level within the year-old EABC Soccer Premier League that is dedicated to promoting player development at the highest level, engaging professional coaches and arranging league plays among teams

based in locations ranging from Vancouver Island to the Okanagan, with most of course coming from the Lower Mainland region. I was stunned to learn that the Okanagan club has not been able to obtain any local sponsorships from businesses and corporations in the Kelowna/ Central Okanagan region, and I am sorry to say that I find this shameful and embarrassing. Is it not recognized that soccer is the most

widely played ball game in Canada and the world; that Canada is slowly moving towards becoming internationally competitive (see top Canadian womens’ team, three teams in the top performing North American MLS, and the new local exemplary Premier League youth development in BC)? I know at least one player (a goalie) from one of the Okanagan teams who joined the provincial team last

summer, an honour and distinction for the local regional club. There is some sponsorship of hockey by local business, and I sure hope that some of the local business leaders will rise to the task and come on line with some support for Okanagan soccer and that at future matches ad banners alongside the Mission playing fields will bear testimony to their sponsorships. There is special

need for this for your local teams because every second league match has to be played in the Vancouver area—and so it becomes costly. The region should be proud to see that the “beautiful game” is being played at this high level right in the Okanagan and thus deserves support by the communities and its businesses. Dr. Hans Baer, Vancouver

Kelowna is being ruined by all the highrises To the editor: It is rather obvious that the (Kelowna city) council supporters of the proposed duo highrise Monaco project at Doyle and Ellis are either suffering from myopic vision or there is a lot of money being grabbed under the table. I used to live in Fresno, California for a time, and watched the council there destroy that city

with unnecessary highrises and misguided ideas about developing downtown. Their efforts destroyed Fresno as a liveable municipality. Fresno downtown became the home of denizens and crime has become rampant. Nobody I know will even go there anymore. The centre is dead.  Now I see the same mistakes being made here in Kelowna.

We all  know that (Mayor) Walter Gray’s council is partial to developers, but in an era where people cannot even sell their condos, this manic mania for almost unbridled development along the lakeshore and the downtown vicinity is going to cost this town dearly.  Kelowna is a resort community, but the prettiness of downtown and

Solution: Ban the homeless To the editor: I used to live in Kelowna in 1989. Back then we had a few homeless living downtown. Now the city has a fairly large homeless issue. I don’t even feel safe walking downtown or in the park in the evening and during the day down Lawrence. I was walking

down through the park and they were going to the bathroom in the lake by the sails, behind trees. Shutting down the shelter is not a good thing as they would still congregate in the area. The only answer is to put a ban on homeless people. Do not provide for them and push them out of the city.

Council needs to step up and ban homeless people from living in Kelowna where they take advantage of our free shelters and food. Beggars downtown ruin the Main Street. Warren Duff, Kelowna

those wonderful views of the lake and mountains will quickly be lost by canyons of highrises, enclosing an awkward pedestrian walkway where there is very limited parking. We will have to contend with a mini-Vancouver and all its accompanying problems in the years

ahead all because some greedy and misinformed council members and developers hurried to destroy a coveted jewel that once shone brightly in the firmament of beautiful Canadian lake resorts. What a shame. Laurence D. M. Marshall, Kelowna

NEWS ▼ COURT

Arrest called shocking and unnecessary Mantler from A1 “stun him and jump him” and to prevent moving to lethal force, McDougall said. “He honestly thought he was protecting him,” said McDougall. If he had known then what he knows now, “it wouldn’t have happened,” McDougall added. At issue was that the 911 call taker and dispatcher did not convey to officers that Tavares had been shooting at geese that day, said McDougall. Without that information, Mantler believed he was dealing with an “active shooter” and mistakenly believed it was a situation where he should approach Tavares’ vehicle, rather than stay with the protection of his vehicle and wait for backup before making the arrest. That decision put him in a vulnerable position, the court heard. “It was a young, inexperienced officer faced with the most serious of crime…unfortunately, he ended up making a mistake and he’s dealt with that,” said McDougall, who had harsh words for the RCMP’s handling of the case. Not only did respond-

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

JOHN TAVARES expressed his frustration with the legal process outside the Kelowna courthouse during the sentencing hearing for Geoff Mantler. ing officers fail to learn the fact Tavares was shooting at geese until later, but no senior officer dealt with the call. Mantler was one of the most experienced officers, with about three and a half years of service. “I’m not aware of a single effort by RCMP management to deal with any of the errors,” said McDougall. “It appears, at the end of the day, it all falls on Geoff Mantler.” As well, Mantler was never given an opportunity to explain his actions to his boss and was in-

stead escorted out of the building that day, initially on administrative leave, said McDougall. He eventually was suspended without pay and lost his benefits, which were helping pay for counselling. Mantler had also been willing to potentially sit down with investigators to talk about what happened once his lawyer, who was out of town dealing with family business, returned to Kelowna, the court heard. However, a few days later police announced a

charge was being recommended against Mantler—just hours before a public rally was set to occur in Kelowna. “It appeared they were more interested in the public outcry,” said McDougall, who then advised against meeting with investigators. Mantler, who was “vilified” after his arrest, left his Kelowna home following the publicity from the case and will suffer financial loss selling his home in this depressed market. Prior to the charge, he

was a “shining” star in the RCMP and was described in a performance review as a “top-quality RCMP officer,” McDougall said. But on Jan. 7, 2011, Mantler “ignored or forgot most of his training,” said Burrows, and the kick to the brain-injured man was “shocking and unnecessary.” It was a heat of the moment situation, and Tavares “did nothing to turn up the heat.” And, as the case wound through the courts, rather than “admit what was obvious from the getgo,” Mantler’s defence attacked Tavares’ credibility, said Burrows. The court process, Burrows said, has done “nothing but diminish his (Tavares’) faith in police and the justice system.” Tavares’ frustration was palpable as he spoke to reporters on the courthouse steps. “Poor guy, he’s the victim,” he said of Mantler. When asked about Mantler’s explanation about why he kicked, Tavares said: “I’ve seen a lot of God-damned stupid in my life. This tops all of it.” edit@kelownacapnews.com

Judge to pass sentencing on Mantler today Cheryl Wierda CONTRIBUTOR

Geoff Mantler will find out his punishment from the courts on Thursday, but it was revealed this week that he will no longer face discipline from the RCMP. Mantler’s lawyer, Neville McDougall, said Tuesday that Mantler has resigned from the force. “As he is no longer a member of the RCMP, a Code of Conduct can’t be enforced,” said Insp. Rick Flewelling, who is currently acting as the officer in charge of Kelowna RCMP following Supt. Bill McKinnon’s retirement. RCMP officers are governed by the RCMP Code of Conduct, and a Code of Conduct investigation was launched after Mantler was caught on video kicking a brain-injured Buddy Tavares in the face in early 2011. The process—and any ensuing discipline—had been on hold pending the outcome of Mantler’s court case. But with his resignation—which RCMP say took place March 15—that disciplinary process will not resume. The court heard Tuesday that the RCMP had been seeking Mantler’s dismissal from the police force. His legal punishment was also discussed in court Tuesday, with sentencing submissions being presented to Judge Greg Koturbash. Crown counsel Will Burrows indicated he was seeking a suspended sentence and 18 months probation for the former police officer. Suggested conditions of probation include no contact with Tavares, except to write a letter of apology or to participate in victim-offender reconciliation. As well, Crown is suggesting 40-60 hours of community work service or a fine, plus a firearms prohibition. McDougall suggested a conditional discharge during sentencing submissions. That would mean that Mantler would not have a criminal conviction provided he followed the requirements of the conditional discharge. Sentencing is scheduled for Thursday (May 2) morning.

The four candidates— incumbent MLA Norm Letnick of the B.C. Liberals, as well as Graeme James (Conservatives), Mike Nuyens (NDP) and Gary Adams (Greens)— fielded questions ranging from the economy, small business, health care and agriculture issues. The event was hosted by the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce. “We were quite happy with it,” said Corrinne Cross, manager of the Lake Country Chamber. “I think we had a lot of good questions that the audience were able to gauge responses on. With the pre-submitted ques-

tions and ones submitted at the event we had some questions that we were unable to get to in the time allotments.  We will e-mail those questions to the candidates and put the responses together to be available to anyone wishing to call, stop by or e-mail the chamber office for the responses.” Among the more pertinent conversations to Lake Country was a focus on agriculture and the Buy B.C. program which Liberal MLA Letnick said the government will bring back if re-elected. “Agriculture is a passion of mine,” said Letnick. “Right now we are about 30 per cent greater since 2001 and the sector is expected to grow in the next three or four years. We will double the buy local program.” But that assertion drew a response from Conservative candidate James, who said farmers have a tough time in B.C. as compared to other

provinces. “We have some of the toughest land use policies in North America in this province,” said James. “We support agriculture the least in Canada. I was farming when the Liberals killed the Buy B.C. program. It was one of the best programs. They cut it out and now they are bringing it back just before an election. Farmers need support from day one, every year, and that hasn’t been happening.” Nuyens, a third-generation Lake Country resident, who was raised as an apple orchardist and operated an orchard for part of his business-life, said agriculture is a key part of the NDP’s plans. “Under the plan we announced in Lake Country is a proposal to increase the agriculture budget,” he said. “We would bring back the Buy B.C. program and the Feed B.C. program. We need to support the farm-

ing communities around the Okanagan.” Green party candidate Adams said his party would move the province towards more environmentally friendly solutions. “We would encourage municipalities to buy from local companies instead of buying from overseas,” said Adams. The candidates also spoke on the health care situation with Letnick saying they are increasing the numbers of doctors being trained in the area, James pushing for a two tiered system and Nuyens saying more dollars are needed for kids at risk in the health care system. “What we are doing is continuing to expand the number of spaces for doctors in B.C.,” said Letnick. “We have a brand new health program at UBC Okanagan where we are developing doctors. We are trying to diversify the training of doctors so they can stay in the area they are trained, in the north or

in the Okanagan.” James though, said the Conservatives feel a twotiered system would be better. “In Europe they have a universal health system but some of them have a two tiered system where a private system can help a pubic one,” he said. “I paid a specialist to look at my knee. Why can’t everyone do that if they have the money? If you don’t have the money then you go to the public system.” Nuyens said more help is needed for children who are in need of health care. “B.C. has the second highest child poverty rate in Canada,” he said. “We propose to bring back a program that helps the struggling families that are in need of additional funds for early childhood care.” The provincial election is May 14.

▼ SAFETY COUNCIL FUNDRAISER

Two motorcycles up for grabs Now in its seventh year, the Kelowna and District Safety Council’s most popular fundraiser is back. This Father’s Day, one lucky winner will win two brand new 2013 Harley Davidson Sportsters, as well as a 30-hour learn to ride course from KDSC.  The 1200-cc bike is two-tone Candy Orange/ Beer Bottle and the 883cc bike is two-tone birch white/midnight pearl.  Keep them both, sell them and trade up, or sell them and keep the cash.  Either way, it’s a winwin and ticket purchasers will help to support KDSC’s Little Travellers’ Safety Village for kids.  The total prize value is $26,789.60. “We’re one-third of the way through the raffle period now, and it’s going well,” said Tania Meyer, executive director of the Kelowna and District Safety Council. “We sold out early the last five years in a row, so we’re encouraging people to get their tickets now while they’re still available in order to avoid be-

ing disappointed later.” Only 3,900 tickets are being sold, and ticket cost $20 each or three for $50.  The winner will be announced at a public random draw on Father’s Day, June 16 at 3 p.m. at the Boyd’s Autobody Car Show at Kelowna City Park. The winner does not have to be present to claim the prizes. The motorcycles are currently on display at Rona until May 5 and then back at Princess Auto until the middle of this month.  The bikes will be featured around Kelowna every day until the raffle sells out, and other locations include Orchard Park Shopping Centre,

Mara Lumber, Westside Save On Foods, and Princess Auto. The entire raffle schedule is available at www.kdsc.bc.ca. Volunteers are on site at each location to sell tickets, and the bikes is being trailered from one location to the next, so that the first person to put any kilometers on the bikes will be the winner. As a fundraiser for KDSC, proceeds from this raffle will help ensure that all of its safety programs will continue to grow. The Kelowna and District Safety Council operates the Little Travellers’ Safety Village, offers defensive driving programs

for seniors, and runs one of the oldest and largest motorcycle training facilities in B.C. “As a not-for-profit organization, we really rely on this raffle to make our programs possible, and people can help us achieve our goals for as little as $20….and they’ll have a chance at great prizes as well,” said Meyer. Tickets can also be purchased by calling KDSC at 250-765-3163 (toll free 1-888-580-7233) or by visiting the KDSC office at 395 Hartman Road.

Making business simple for Okanagan small business owners

Lack of time, resources and access to expertise are common challenges faced by all small business owners. However, the new provincial focus on eliminating these barriers is a positive move toward efficiency and sustainability say local business experts. According to Kevin Smith, manager, commercial banking for Kelowna and Vernon with Valley First Credit Union, the March 20 signing of the B.C. Small Business Accord (SBA) is a step in the right direction as it ac-

knowledges the importance they play across the province. The SBA is a commitment from the provincial government to improve its interactions with small businesses and ensure government initiatives and services consider small business needs. “We see small businesses as the heart, soul and backbone of our local business communities,” said Smith. “They provide jobs, experience and drive local growth. It’s also no secret

many small business owners feel a lot of pressure. “The SBA is based on solid principles that should, in time, make things simpler for small businesses owners.” The SBA is based on six core principles related to reducing red tape, enhancing collaboration, providing greater access to skills, training and capital and creating long-term growth opportunities. With small businesses representing 98 per cent of all business

types and accounting for close to a third of the provincial GDP, it is easy to see why greater attention needs to be paid to the success, sustainability and efficiency of small business across B.C., said Smith. “Small business owners face many challenges larger companies can avoid,” he said. “They are often the bookkeeper, sales force, HR and IT departments all rolled into one.” Kelowna Chamber of Commerce president Dave Bond echoes Smith’s

sentiments: “Our communities are built around and rely on small business,” said Bond. “It’s the small businesses throughout our communities that cater to many of our needs and more than half the jobs across B.C. come from small businesses. “This is incredibly important for the health and vitality of our local economy.” Valley First is a division of First West Credit Union, B.C.’s third-largest credit union.

NEWS ▼ 10 AND 2 CHALLENGE

Convincing drivers to handle the steering wheel properly

I

unveiled a new road safety initiative at the second annual One Crash is Too Many gala event last month. Thank you to this year’s “celebrities,” leaders in the local “car crash industry” who helped make this year’s event a success: AM 1150’s Phil Johnson, personal injury lawyer Steven Turner, West Kelowna Fire Chief Wayne Schnitzler, RCMP member Sandy Fazan, and Kelowna General Hospital chief of staff Dr. Mike Ertel. I am also very grateful to the substantial volunteer efforts of CHBC’s Don Ferguson and his students at the Centre for Arts and Technology, who put together a fabulous western-themed video of the celebrities at the OK Corral, costumes generously donated by Kerri Brandel, of Calowna Costume. Of course, Magda Kapp and her crew at BrainTrust Canada were the wizards behind the organization and perfect execution of the event itself.

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott The new road safety initiative I unveiled is the “ten and two challenge.” I wrote about experimenting with this road safety idea in my column of March 29, 2012. It was in that column where I shared my thoughts about the senseless rear-ender crash March 20, 2012, that resulted in the death of one motorcyclist and serious injuries to another in Kelowna. My experiment, which has been ongoing for over a year now, has been a success.  I found that it takes effort to keep my hands at a particular location on the steering wheel.  Any time my mind wanders, whether it be thinking about the office, my kids, or whatever the distraction, my hands naturally move to one of

those more comfortable positions that most of us end up using after years and years of driving. You know what I mean—right wrist hanging over the top of the steering wheel; hands in the lap operating the bottom of the wheel; one hand on the wheel and the other elbow on the elbow rest, whatever your particular “sweet spot” is. I find that I immediately notice the movement of my hands from the position I committed to maintaining, which alerts me that I’m not focusing my attention on the road and snaps me to attention. See, I’m not a naturally attentive driver. Over the years of seeing the results of crash after crash after crash, I have become more and more responsible in my driving, but of course my mind is prone to wander just like everyone else’s. Just like everyone else, I had my share of close calls when I would slam on my brakes just in time; realize almost too late that I am entering an

intersection on a red light; etc. I had my share of situations that could have ended up like the one on March 20, 2012, in Kelowna, or the recent horrendous tragedy in Surrey. I have not had even one close call since starting my ten and two experiment over a year ago.  Its success got me excited.  If it is so successful for me, perhaps it will be successful for others.  Perhaps if I can convince everyone to do this very simple thing while driving, a real difference can be made. Announcing a road safety initiative at a gala event of 120 people does about as much for road safety in this province as being buried to the neck in the desert and trying to dig yourself out with the chopsticks that Jackie Chan put in your mouth (I love that movie, Shanghai Noon). I am so very grateful to Global news anchor Doris Bregolisse who happened to be at the gala event, interviewed me on camera, and broadcast my ten and two challenge on

Derby celebrates the joy of fishing on Okanagan Lake

Trophy sport fishing on Okanagan Lake may very well be the best‐kept secret in British Columbia. The inaugural 2013 Kelowna Fishing Derby takes place June 15 on Okanagan Lake celebrat-

ing Father’s Day, Family Fishing Day and promoting sustainable sport fishing on the lake. The stars have aligned on June 15 to provide tight lines for sport fishermen lured by the opportunity to enjoy a free day of fish-

ing courtesy of the provincial government (no fishing license is required all weekend from June 14 to 16). There’s also no better way to spend a day with your dad, than a day on the water—with the

chance to hook into a fish that could net you one of the $20,000 in prizes available in the derby including a $5,000 1st place, $2,000 2nd place and $1,000 third place prize. Tickets are $65 plus

GST ($68.25 total). And if the biggest fish just doesn’t bite there’s still more incredible prizes to hook into—like an all‐inclusive fly‐in fishing

Chasing damaging woodpeckers away from buildings STRAIGHT FROM DEHART

eith Eisenkrein, of Ogopogo Stucco and Masonry, has been in business for the past 12 years. Over those years, Eisenkrein has seen a great deal of damage done by woodpeckers making holes in a building’s cladding. From commercial highrises and small buildings to residential homes, woodpeckers can cause serious damage. Now, Eisenkrein has come up with a solution to the problem, having created a new product called EIFS (Exterior Insulation Finish Systems) Armour, a brand new, patent pending product which is the only product of its kind, guaranteed to stop woodpecker damage in buildings where the EIFS cladding has been installed. They are currently only repairing existing damage to buildings with EIFS systems, however intend to also use it as preventative maintenance with new buildings, once they have the required regulatory approvals to do so. The product is now being offered throughout the Okanagan, Tsawwassen and Victoria. It has been field tested in Kelowna with a 100 per cent success rate. Contact 250575-8124; www.eifsarmour.com. Along with celebrating their 20th anniver-

sary in business, Sun Valley Foam is operating out of new premises. Owned and operated by Jason Druitt, Sun Valley Foam is now located in the rear portion of Dinah’s Cleaners, 172 Asher Rd., in Rutland, which is owned by Dinah Druitt.

Everything has changed from floor to ceiling and the restaurant/lounge has a brand new bright, open, modern atmosphere, with upscale décor, but very fitting for the golf course. The clubhouse now boasts a huge fireplace with comfy couch seating around it, new flooring, tables, chairs, drapes and accessories. There is also new round and rectangular tables with leather chairs and a new menu.

Kelowna millwork company treats woodwork as art Heartland Millworks owner Will Brundula has almost two decades of experience in custom woodwork in Kelowna and is now unveiling his recent projects. When Kelowna woodworker Will Brundula began his apprenticeship in his father’s shop, he likened the work to not only a trade but also an art. Over a decade and hundreds of custom millwork designs later, Brundula sees woodworking a little differently. “I do think of it as art. Absolutely,” said Brun-

dula, the head of Heartland Millworks and the mind behind some of its most talked-about specialized woodworking projects—from the 22-foot table at RauDZ Regional Table to the floor-to-ceiling woodwork renovation at Brandt’s Creek Pub & Liquor Store. “Painters have tools and materials and they

have to decide how to put them on a cloth. We’ve got tools and materials, and our cloth is a house.” Brundula is like any artist: He lives for blank canvasses. For example, the multi-million dollar home where a couple gave him “free reins” to create the custom furniture for their bedroom. The result was a stunning walnut and leather canopy bed punctuated by nightstands of walnut burl. “I got to just sit in the dark and dream it up,”

said Brundula, who finds his creative mind delivers the best woodworking designs at the end of the day. “I’ve literally gone and sat on the couch, turned off the lights, and just started looking in my head.” The design for the 22foot table, which now seats diners at RauDZ Regional Table, evolved out of little more than the owner’s desire for something big and rustic. “You really just build something in your head and then go to the shop and see how you can do it

mechanically.” The now famous RauDZ table, made from reclaimed wood, is a mechanical marvel among Kelowna fine woodworking designs. The table has only two legs, and no nails or glue. Six men once stood on it and tried to get it to shake or sag and couldn’t. That was just after figuring out how to get it through the door to install it without breaking a wall. After building works from scratch in the shop, there’s often an installation challenge Heartland

has to overcome. At Brandt’s Creek Pub & Liquor Store, the owners were able to stay open and serve customers on a temporary bar top built by Brundula. Meanwhile, his Kelowna millwork team stripped, sanded, finished and then installed the new rounded bar top. The signature piece convinced the owners to take on the rest of the bar, once fitted with cabinets by Brundula’s father, and even the liquor store. “Everything seemed to flow from there,” said

Brundula, whose woodworking designs now encase an ice cooler, spirits in glass cabinets, and the till so the store’s cabinetry is seamless. Heartland Millworks has been designing custom woodworking projects in Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon and all throughout the Okanagan since 1972. Besides highend millwork and custom cabinets for offices, kitchens, bedrooms, wall units, doors, trim and moulding, Heartland offers refinishing solutions for the home and business.

More than 50 students from Shannon Lake nElementary watched excitedly as crews from the Summerland Trout -Hatchery—Freshwater ,Fisheries Society of B.C. stocked a portion of Shannon Lake with 800 rainebow trout Wednesday. It’s the seventh year in a row the netted off portion at the south end of the lake has been stocked as part of Go Fish: A program that gives young people a chance to fall in love with angling. Each Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Sunday, June 16, kids 15 and under will be given equipment and guidance to fish for rainbow trout. They will also be allowed to keep one fish each day without a fishing licence. Al Springer, of the Peachland Sportsmen’s Association, had the idea for Go Fish about eightand-a-half years ago. “Kids need to learn

about the outdoors,” said Springer. “This is one way of doing it.” Earlier this week Springer helped put a 130-foot long net across a portion of the lake. According to Darren Greiner, assistant manager of the Summerland Trout Hatchery, adding fish to the netted off area gives young anglers an increased chance of instant success. “I grew up fishing with my father and my grandfather—now I fish with my son,” said Greiner. ‘I can’t tell you how gratifying it is to see the smile on a young person’s face…I get really excited when I see kids catch fish. Hopefully they get hooked on it for life.” Go Fish begins Saturday at the Hall Road pond in Mission Creek Regional Park and Sunday at the netted off fishing area in Shannon Lake Regional Park.

Community forum to shed light on issue of homeless youth Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

For several years, volunteers from Westbank United Church and St. George’s Anglican Church have been serving meals to the youth at the West Kelowna Boys and Girls Club. Last fall the volunteers learned a handful of those they were serving didn’t have any place to call home. “It was brought to our attention that there were two youth who were living in a tent all throughout the winter months,” said Audrey Frisken. “A group of us decided that the

community at large likely doesn’t know that such a thing is going on…we decided to have a public information forum.” Frisken, a member of the forum’s planning committee, said there are several other kids who are homeless as well; however, they opt to “couch-surf” rather than stay outdoors in tents. “Some of them are in middle school, most of them are in senior high. Some are anywhere up to age 24—most services only last until age 18,” said Frisken. The forum—No Place to Call Home—takes place Tuesday, May 7 at the Westbank Lions Commun-

ity Centre. Representatives from the Boys and Girls Club, the Canadian Mental Health Association, the RCMP, Kelowna Gospel Mission and several other organizations will be on hand at the forum. All West Kelowna residents are invited to attend. Frisken hopes the session will motivate the community to get involved with the issue. She added ultimately the goal is to get an emergency shelter on the Westside and, eventually, longer term services for youth to take advantage of. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com

Cameron key in T’Birds’ win

Warren Henderson

STAFF REPORTER

Some of the best golf of Haley Cameron’s career was instrumental in helping the UBC Thunderbirds secure a berth in the 2013 NAIA national women’s golf championship. The 21-year-old Kelowna product and KSS grad finished second in individual play this week in Victoria, Texas, as the T’Birds cruised to the team title at the Association of Independent Institutions Conference Championship. It’s third straight year UBC has won the region-

al title which carries with it an automatic berth into the NAIA national finals May 21 to 24 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Cameron’s two-day score of one-over par 145 (74-71) was second only to Thunderbirds’ teammate Regan Wilson (139) who finished at five-under par. UBC claimed the overall team title by a convincing 13 strokes over California State-San Marcos. Cameron said team chemistry was vital to the T’Birds’ success. “The five of us have so much trust in one another on the golf course that it makes it easy to

play confident, aggressive golf,” said Cameron, who is joined on the winning squad by Wilson, Kylie Barros, Stephanie Wong and Casara Hong. “We had high hopes coming into our regional championship this year, but breaking the team record set last spring by 10 strokes was an incredible feeling and proves how our hard work and team unity is paying off. It’s exciting to head into nationals with this kind of momentum.” Cameron, who is in her fourth and final campaign with the Thunderbirds, was encouraged by her own game, one that

has progressed with a more relaxed approach. “I’ve been able to play with a lot more freedom in my final season, and it’s led to the most enjoyable college golf of my four years,” she said. “This week my ball striking was probably the best it’s ever been. Hitting greens was easy, and I was able to start playing for birdie instead of par. I’m looking forward to two weeks of training with this group to keep it going into our NAIA championship.” Cameron is the reigning champion and twotime winner of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club’s Ladies Open.

UBCO Heat basketball lands Argyle’s Elliott

After a successful year at North Vancouver’s Argyle Secondary Claire Elliott will trade in the gold and green of her Piper uniform and don the blue and gold of the UBC Okanagan Heat this fall. Elliott has committed to the women’s basketball program for head coach Heather Semeniuk for the 2013-14 Canada West season. “I’m very excited that Claire has committed to our program,” says Semeniuk, who as head coach of the Heat will be leading her team in its third year in Canada West and will be her twentieth behind the bench at the institution. “She is a great person and an outstanding student. Her personality will allow her to mesh easily with her new teammates – who will love playing with Claire.” The 5-foot-7 point guard has been described

as a “glue” player and does all the things on the court that aren’t always reflected in a gaudy stat line, such as playing defense, on-court leadership, and always making the extra pass. These intangibles are what Heather Semeniuk immediately noticed when watching Claire compete during her senior year. “The scout on Claire is that she loves to get her teammates involved,” adds Semeniuk “I really like that part of her game and she is a very composed player, but what goes unnoticed, and I think is one of her best talents is her scoring ability. Claire has the ability to get a hoop whenever her team needs, getting to the rim or with a jumpshot but she will get the basket. At 5-7 Claire has good size for a guard and is also athletic; she uses her athleticism and her size to really

defend. On the perimeter she has the ability to lock down the opposition’s ball handler and make it very hard for a team to start their offence.” As a 95 per cent student Claire has big plans for her academic career and cites the strong academic reputation of UBC’s Okanagan campus as a strong factor in her decision to spend the next half-decade in Kelowna. “I am planning on taking the Nursing Program at UBC Okanagan. I heard that UBC Okanagan has a great nursing program and it really stood out to me through my research. I also really liked that I could go directly into the nursing program without taking a year of university prerequisites,” explains Claire who consistently placed on her school’s honour roll with distinction list. “I hope to become a

registered nurse and to later receive my master’s degree.” A dedicated volunteer throughout her high school years Elliott is involved in many activities including: coaching basketball elementary school teams and younger kids, and organizing and helping with fundraisers. She is currently the Grade 12 Representative on student council, is the President of the Argyle Student’s Helping Humanity Club, and is an active member of the Argyle Cancer Club, and Best Buddies. Claire has built quite an impressive resume playing for Argyle Secondary and has also developed her game playing as a part of the 3D Basketball Academy, all this time on the court has led to individual and team success. Claire was the lone female basketball player

awarded the Telus University Scholarship when her team placed second in the December tournament.  This past season she was named the Lower Mainland’s MVP, after guiding the Pipers past the favoured Handsworth Royals, and then guided her team to a fifth place finish in the province and earned a second team all-star. “I am very excited for next year,”says the multi-talented athlete from North Vancouver. Throughout her years of school Claire played field hockey and fills out her time playing the piano. “I can’t wait to play with such skilled teammates and compete at such a high level of basketball.” Next year Elliott joins a strong recruiting class for coach Semeniuk as she has found replace-

Owls 4th at B.C. sevens rugby finals

CONTRIBUTED

THE KELOWNA Owls, here in action last weekend at UBC, took fourth place out of 16 teams at the B.C. sevens high school rugby championship.

Call it a breakthrough for KSS rugby. The Owls senior boys’ team turned in the program’s best finish ever at the B.C. sevens provincial high school championship last weekend at UBC Vancouver. KSS posted a 4-2 record over two days of competition to finish in fourth spot out of 16 teams. In five previous trips to the provincial 7s tournament, the Owls consistently placed between ninth and 11th.

“This is a huge breakthrough for us,” said Owls coach Dave Marfleet. “We’ve always done well at sevens, we’ve got a good tradition going here at the school and we’ve had some good finishes, but this is our best yet. “We made fewer mistakes,” Marfleet said of his team’s play. “The boys played with a lot of patience and played a good ball-possession game.” On Day 1, the Owls won all three of their games: 14-7 over St.

Mikes, 7-5 over Robert Bateman, and 17-7 over Magee. On the second day, KSS edged Oak Bay 2017 to advance to the semifinals, where the Owls lost to powerhouse Shawnigan Lakes 36-5. In the third-place game, Yale defeated Kelowna 29-12. Members of the KSS sevens team are: Jake Pilon, Eli Haynes, Joel Henseleit Andrew Henseleit, Rahkeem Rockwell, Joe

Price, Arun Mahal, Ryan Lawson Carlos Cuerda, Tyrel  Sawatsky, Brodie Couch, Dom Haynes and Owen Marshall. The Owls now turn their attention back to the 15s season. KSS, ranked fourth in the province, is unbeaten in Okanagan Valley league play this season. The valley playoffs begin next week, with the Okanagan final set for Monday, May 13.

Help kids talk about emotions Julie Lewis CONTRIBUTOR

I am lucky to have two sisters that I am close with. However, close doesn’t always mean we see eye to eye. Last week, my sis-

ter and I were disagreeing about politics. She made a comment that I took very personally. I was so upset I couldn’t even finish the disagreement. Later that night, I called my sister back and

told her how surprised I was that I was unable to talk while feeling so upset. I see similar reactions in my young children, ages 3 and 6, when they are fighting. The six-year old is taller and thinks faster

than her younger brother. When they are fighting over a toy, she can get her own way by putting it out of his reach. My three-year-old’s response is to either hit his sister or start screaming. I catch myself telling them to “use your words,” but that reminder on its own doesn’t actually help them to do so. When emotions run high communication is difficult—for both children and adults. When parents teach their children the language and skills to manage emotions, children grow into individuals who have better relationships at school, at home and at work. Here are a few tips to help your children communicate about emotions. Help toddlers learn the names of emotions (happy, sad, mad, tired, and scared). Talk about your own emotions and the emotions of characters in books and on TV. Help children learn to regulate their own emotions. Show them how to take a few moments to breathe when emotions run high and how to come back when they are feeling calmer.

SPRING VISIT…With the academic year winding down and

students departing, wildlife is making the UBC Okanagan campus their own. This pair of quail spent time sunning themselves outside the Engineering Management Education building this week. Give children the words instead of telling them to “use your words.” When you see your child expressing himself by hitting or using other unacceptable behaviours, tell him what he could say instead. For example, you can say “Scott, tell Suzie how you feel. Say, ‘When you put the bear where I can’t reach it, I feel mad. I want a turn.’” Teach your children

simple phrases that help them talk about emotions. For example: “I don’t like that” and “Please do something different” are very useful during conflict. Older pre-schoolers and elementary school age children are very capable of explaining their feelings with the formula of “when you ____ I feel _____.” Calmly coaching children to communicate in

times of high emotion and modelling these skills yourself can help children become successful communicators. These valuable communication skills help children become good problem-solvers and feel more confident about their relationships with others. Julie Lewis is a registered speech-language pathologist with Interior Health.

Footprint Days participants ready to walk neighbours will take part in different walks, starting at 5:30 p.m. Participants will walk about five kilometres each night starting from the entrance of the school (960

Glenmore Dr.) to promote healthy living lifestyles to children, showing them how fun it can be to stay active. Although roads will not be closed for these

events, motorists may experience minor delays at road crossings, and are asked to follow the directions of course marshals and be cautious while driving.

Engineering students develop event fundraiser to help end homelessness Lori Turner CONTRIBUTOR

The second annual Arthur Cottie Memorial Push to End Homelessness (The Push) fundraiser will take place Saturday, May 11. This event is the brainchild of the engineering students from UBC Okanagan.

First-year engineering students were placed on teams and encouraged to develop fundraisers for various non-profit organizations, such as Inn From The Cold (IFTC), a local agency with a vision to have no one homeless in Kelowna. The event was so creative, fun and successful that IFTC has integrated

The Push into its yearly fundraiser schedule. According to IFTC coordinator, Tara Tschritter, “this event not only helps raise funds, it also increases awareness about the issue of homelessness in our community.” Although IFTC receives some government support, a larger part of the funding has relied on the generosity of local residents, businesses and organizations to help meet its financial and volunteer needs. “Without the ongoing community support that we have received, IFTC would not have been able provide a safe place to sleep and a nutritious meal to the many clients that we served,” said Tschritter. “Last year, The Push

Currently, we have 14 teams registered.” The Push is a shopping cart scavenger hunt and BBQ with live music that culminates in Kelowna City Park. Local residents, organizations or companies form teams and pledge to raise funds. The participants will meet at the IFTC office, 1157 Sutherland Ave., at 9 a.m. to decorate their shopping carts. Departing at 10 a.m., participants will follow a series of clues in order to find hidden objects, information and prizes.

that contained his prized stuffed toy collection, among other personal possessions,” said Tschritter Local businesses such as Kelowna Dinner Cruises, Grey Monk Winery, Oyama Zip Lines, Atlantis Waterslides and more, are participating by donating prizes that appeal to adults and/or children; by pledging to sponsor a cart; or by providing clues for

Drain winter pool water the right way As many local residents are busy preparing their swimming pools and hot tubs for summer enjoyment, the City of Kelowna wants to remind them of the proper procedure to drain winter pool water without putting a strain on the environment. Residents are encouraged to consider the following when draining their pools and hot tubs. • Drain to a dry area on the property over a long period of time • Discharge the water at a low flow rate • Make sure the water stays on their own property • Stop draining if it starts raining • Salt water pools can drain directly into the sanitary sewer system. “Knowing how to properly drain your pool or hot tub is important to help protect our water systems,”

said Mike Gosselin, city wastewater treatment supervisor. “Disinfectants keep pools and hot tubs clean from bacteria, but can damage our water supply if they enter our storm systems as they flow directly into the lake.” To help protect the environment, the Sanitary Sewer/Storm Drain Regulation Bylaw restricts the discharge of residential swimming pool and hot tub water containing disinfectants such as chlorine, salt water and bromine. If pool water containing these disinfectants is drained into the storm sewer system, they are then released into Okanagan Lake and local streams untreated. If proper drainage on the property is not possible, the water must be dechlorinated before being

drained into the storm sewer system. Storm sewers are the catch basins or grates on the road usually found by a sidewalk. These drain into the storm sewer system, which connect directly into Okanagan Lake and local streams. The sanitary sewer system on individual properties is identified by the circular pipe with lid or a square container that, when opened, contains a pipe (the container may be marked with “SEWER”). The sanitary sewer system is directed to the City’s Wastewater Treatment Facility and is treated before being released into the lake. Improper discharge of contaminated water can result in a fine of up to $2,000. For more information call 250-469-8887 or visit kelowna.ca/ utilities, under water drainage.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ KELOHA MUSIC FESTIVAL

Mutemath joins impressive lineup for three days of music Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Six months ago, exactly two hours after performing a show in Bâton Rouge, Mutemath drummer Darren King became a father. His phone was sitting beside his drum kit as the prelude-to-birth got rolling 10 days early and right along with the last concert of their tour. He prepared himself to walk away mid-song should a text arrive from his wife. “I told the audience we would come back and play the show again,” he said. “But I had to go if she called.” Since the birth of Scarlett—who was riding in the car seat, her mother, Stacy DuPree of the rock band Eisley, presumably seated shotgun for the duration of this interview— the frenetic pace new life creates has opened doors for the musician and his New Orleans-based rock band. Writing the material for an album to follow their critically acclaimed Odd Soul—“an absolute mother of an album,” according to Andy Peterson of contactmusic.com— they are once again refining a new direction. Funnily enough, it’s a

bit of the same feeling the Keloha Music Festival has given the music scene in Kelowna, and Mutemath will be among the headliners this summer. Wet Ape Productions opened the doors on Keloha in 2012 to rave reviews. The indie-styled music mélange is the company’s second beach festival in Kelowna. Owner and ex-professional volleyball player Scott Emslie has quickly, but quite quietly, built a new route to beach-side entertainment by working closely with local businesses and political-types to mold a scene that works for the community, after the mismanagement of Wakefest, not to mention actual riots at Peachfest and the Kelowna Regatta, nearly brought this form of entertainment to its knees in the Okanagan. After several years of operating Centre of Gravity without issue, Keloha’s inaugural weekend opened with acts like The Sheepdogs (now the subject of a documentary on their lightening-rod success), California’s Awolnation, and local fan favour Dan Mangan headlining. This year, along with Mutemath, the company has invited Shad, MGMT,

MUTEMATH preforms at the Keloha Music Festival July 5-7 in Kelowna’s Waterfront Park. The Trews, Arkells, The Zolas, Washboard Union and Tanlines to heat up the beach for the July 5-7 Keloha concerts. And Tiësto, Kaskade and Dada Life will take the stage the next month at the Centre of Gravity, held at Kelowna’s City Park each August.

Altogether, Wet Ape figures Keloha will contribute about $2.5 million to the local economy and Centre of Gravity double the figure—all while bringing in acts Okanagan audiences would likely miss otherwise. A shift in the entertainment scene, particu-

larly in Kelowna, has seen live music fans streaming to small intimate venues to hear generally West Coast-focused touring bands cater to a reasonably diverse range of musical taste, though without the stadium-style, large-scale concert events of years gone by.

CONTRIBUTED

Had they never grown, Mutemath might have fit the bill in the Leon and Bernard Avenue bar scene as well, striking a balance between light-leaning alternative rock and the Christian background so many artists touring the Kelowna area claim. King said he grew up

in an ardently religious household, raised with ideas that promote courtship over dating. And while he now finds the idea preposterous, the loneliness of an adolescence spent without female interaction left him with the time and pent up sexual frustration to learn how to tear up a drum set like no other, he claims. These days, his work is more about trying to impress one woman, his wife, and that might even include learning more vocal accompaniment. “I’ve always wanted to be a singer,” he said, noting he practically stalked both Mutemath singer Paul Meany and his wife. “I want to be one of them, to just have enough confidence to write ideas and create ideas.” As it stands, he typically does have the idea and it’s up to Meany to refine it. They should have some new tunes refined by the time they play their set in Waterfront Park. Tickets for Keloha, July 5-7, are on sale at www.keloha.com ranging in price from $189.50 for a three-day platinum pass to $49.50 for a single day admission. jsmith@ kelownacapnews.com

Illusion through addition, subtraction T he current installation of work in our smaller exhibition space, the Mardell G. Reynolds Gallery at the Kelowna Art Gallery, is brimming with visual richness. Twenty-five paintings by New Yorkbased artist Jordan Broadworth are squeezed into the room, each one packing an aesthetic kick that

ON VIEW

Liz Wylie will unpack with some force once a viewer be-

gins looking at the work. Broadworth achieves an incredible variety in these works, each measuring only 14 by 17 inches, especially considering his working method is the same for each. Basically, the illusion he achieves of both tactility and luminescence, is accomplished by an additive and then subtractive process. Paint is

layered on, then methodically scraped away, and the works are left to dry. The rich black in each piece is the last layer to go on, and the surfaces of each work, while looking heavily textured, are actually completely flat. This weird contradiction and surprise is one of the binaries referred to in the exhibition’s title.

Others include such opposites as linear vs painterly, gesture vs a geometric structure, and light vs dark. Each of these binaries is brought into a hard-won harmony in the pieces. The small works are dense and active, as one

Iron Man 3 tests staying power

I

ron Man 3 opens this weekend and the question is: Can its box office be anywhere close to the record-breaking The Avengers which was released the same weekend last year? It has a very good chance because interest and awareness are at saturation levels, plus it has already grossed almost $200 million internationally (it was released in 80 per cent of international markets last weekend). And based on early reviews, it looks like it could have staying power, with a very large majority of critics liking it. Robert Downey Jr. is again getting rave reviews as brash-but-intelligent industrialist Tony Stark and alter-ego Iron Man who this time is up against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When he finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. The journey ultimately becomes his greatest test and must rely on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. Rejoining him is Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle as Pepper Potts and James Rhodes, respectively, and joining the action this time is Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsly as the main villain, The Mandarin. The biggest change is that Jon Favreau, director of the first two, has given up the big chair and given it to writer-director Shane Black (writer of Lethal Weapon 1 & 2 and previously directed Downey Jr. in the brilliant and under-appreciated Kiss Kiss Bang Bang). Fear not because Favreau does reprise his role as Stark’s former personal assistant and now chief of security Happy Hogan. No matter what this movie does, there is already a Thor sequel being released in November, a Captain America sequel set for next April and an Avengers sequel in 2015. Iron Man 3 opens with sneak previews in 3D and 2D at Landmark Cinemas’ Grand 10, Paramount and Landmark Xtreme 8. Last year, the Lifetime Network movie A Mother’s Nightmare was

might expect from an artist living in New York City. Broadworth relocated there from his native Ontario about nine years ago and has thrived in its richness of cultural offerings. He has been exhibiting professionally for about 20 years, and is a seasoned practitioner of abstraction. Viewers might pick up on allusions or nods to previous artists’ work, for example, that of the Abstract Expressionists of the mid20th century. There are no direct references to real life in the pieces in a visual/represenational sense, but the artist’s intellect, psychology and emotions are all strongly present. His

intriguing titles (for example, wolfer, implant copy, papered saw and wrecked substitute) are plucked from a variety of random sources, and are not clues to meaning per se. The meaning of Broadworth’s art lies in its process and in his thinking and stance during its creation. He also works in large scale on canvas, and the two areas of his practice—the small Mylar works and larger canvases—feed back and forth into each other. Ultimately there is great visual and mental

pleasure to be had in looking at this exhibition, especially to those visitors willing to wade into Broadworth’s world and vicariously participate in the making of these thrilling gems of colour, shape, line, and light.

NEWS ▼ NATUROPATHY

How to battle seasonal allergies S pring is in the air—the weather is starting to warm up, fresh cut grass floats in the breeze and blossoms bring trees back to life. Unfortunately for allergy sufferers, this means sneezing, wheezing, runny nose and itchy eyes. Allergies are one of the most common reasons for seeking natural therapies. Nearly seven million Canadians suffer from allergies, and that number is steadily increasing. But before you reach for the antihistamines and intra-nasal steroids, consider treating the root cause of your allergies with naturopathic medicine. Seasonal allergies occur when the immune system is in overdrive with sensitivities and over-reacts to exposure from a normally harmless substance, or allergen (i.e. cat dander, dust, plant pollen or food). Exposure to an allergen leads to an overactive immune system, that in turn produce excess antibodies. Antibodies then trigger the allergic symptoms by activating mast cells which line the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and throat and that produce histamine. This immune cascade is what leads to allergic symptoms of runny nose, sinus congestion, headache, fatigue and itchy eyes. Consider these natural approaches to combating allergies: • Clean up your home environment and your diet • Consider natural antihistamines • Prevent allergies in the future.

CLEAN UP YOUR HOME AND DIET

Dust and feathers are some of the biggest culprits for allergies. Clean dust regularly from floors, windowsills and shelves, and vacuum edges of all rooms.

Eliminating carpet and switching to hardwood floors is a good idea. Get rid of feather pillows and blankets and get hypoallergenic fills Emina instead. Change your Jasarevic pillowcases every two days and run your blankets through the dryer weekly for 30 to 45 minutes. A good quality air purifier/filter is a good investment—consider Nikken Air Power 5 Pro or an IQAir HealthPro. Both can be found online. Food intolerances are clearly linked with seasonal allergies. By eliminating foods that are irritating your immune system, you can strengthen your immunity to better handle seasonal allergies. Dairy allergies tend to be the worst and can increase mucous production aggravating your runnysneezy-congested symptoms as it is. In addition, studies show people with allergies to grass may also react to tomatoes, peanuts, wheat, apples, carrots, celery, peach, melon, eggs and pork. People with allergies to ragweed may also react to cucumbers and melon. Naturopathic doctors readily offer food intolerance testing.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

CONSIDER NATURAL ANTIHISTAMINES

Natural antihistamines can be very effective in reducing the symptoms of allergies and providing relief without the side effects of overthe-counter medications. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that stabilizes the membranes of the cells that release histamine. A high intake of Vitamin C in divided doses helps to stimulate the immune system. Freeze-dried stinging nettle is a wonderful plant-based remedy that can be added to smoothies, soups, or steeped overnight as a drink for a whole foods approach to allergies. Additional natural support in-

cludes herbal tinctures for the treatment of hay fever, sinusitis, upper respiratory catarrh; high-dose vitamin C injections (plus other vitamins) that boost the immune system to better manage symptoms, and; at home Neti-Lota Pot practice that rinses allergens away with salt water.

PREVENT ALLERGIES IN THE FUTURE

Reduce your symptoms by 50 to 80 per cent. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) works by delivering low dose drops of allergens at frequent intervals, twice a day, under the tongue, to build up the body’s tolerance over time. It is an ideal treatment alternative to the expensive and inconvenient weekly allergy shots with an allergist. It also works. Sublingual immunotherapy has been recognized as an efficient and effective treatment for allergies by the World Health Organization and has been used extensively in Europe for almost 20 years. It was introduced to Canada in 2009. An in-office skin-prick test takes about 20 minutes, following an initial consultation with a naturopathic doctor. While antihistamines mask the symptoms of allergies, immunotherapy can train your body to tolerate the allergen, eventually eliminating allergy symptoms and the need for antihistamines or allergy medicines altogether. We invite you to book your consultation and allergy scratch test during spring through summer to start your natural treatment plan. You can get over your allergies and move on with your life.

University honours long-time employees for their service Michael Gesi was noted for more than longterm loyalty at the recent long service recognition luncheon for UBC Okanagan employees. Sure, he had put in the time, more than 25 years, mostly with campus security. Gesi was honoured along with Daniel Kay, 25 years and Michael Berger, Rose Cresswell and Maurice Williams—who were all recognized for more than 35 years of service. But Gesi has the rare distinction of working his full career at UBC, starting out at Vancouver’s Point Grey campus in 1988 and then moving to the Kelowna campus five years ago. Kay, Berger, Cresswell and Williams have all served in a variety of cap-

Solving the riddle of when to eat and not eat carbohydrates Tristaca Curley CONTRIBUTOR

It seems these days you can’t read a magazine or walk an aisle in the grocery store without seeing another low carbohydrate diet promise drastic weight loss with minimal effort. All you have to do is eat, think and breathe protein and never let a carbohydrate pass over your lips. But do low carbohydrate diets really work? And are there any health implications from such a diet? Let me begin by explaining the physiology behind low carbohydrate diets. Carbohydrate is the preferred source of fuel when your body is active. It is easily broken down to provide energy for physical activity. Consequently, your body maintains a pool eof carbohydrate stores in muscle, along with water. When you limit the -amount of carbohydrate in 3your diet, these stores are -quickly depleted, along with the water they are stored with. This is what accounts for the large amount of

weight loss that occurs within the first week or two on low carb diets. However, it is important to realize that this is not simply fat loss. In fact, it is mostly water, along with carbohydrate and lean muscle mass loss. That is why many people experience a large rebound weight gain when they introduce carbs back into their diet. Weight loss occurs on any diet which restricts calories, regardless of whether it is a low carbohydrate, low fat, or high protein diet. Weight loss itself depends on a negative calorie balance, meaning you’re taking in less than you’re expending. The important issue with every diet is where these calories come from. In the case of low carb diets, the majority of foods you eat are of animal protein origin—meat, cheese, cream, eggs. It is not uncommon to see an Atkins devotee feasting on steak smothered with bacon and cheese, followed by sugar free cheesecake, and washed down with a coffee laden with cream. This heavy dose of animal protein brings with

Partnering with him is West Kelowna resident and certified personal trainer Stephanie Moore. “People often need to remove themselves from their daily grind to refocus,” Moore said. “Not only do we get to help people achieve their goals, we also get to give back to the local community. “This is something that I am really pleased with.” The retreat will give back by organizing a shoe drive for local youth in the villages that border the retreat facility at Ayung Sari Indah. As an added component, de Burger will make micro-loans for Indonesian entrepreneurs for each registration received through Kiva.org. “Entrepreneurship is such a powerful tool for people in Third World

countries; if we can assist them in any way, it’s our pleasure to do so,” said de Burger. The retreat is available to a maximum of 14 participants. All fitness levels are welcome and people are encouraged to embrace the tranquility that the location will provide. “There is no WiFi on the property, so people will probably get the shakes when their iPad doesn’t get service,” laughed de Burger. “But once people embrace the atmosphere and start to rejuvenate, it can truly be an amazing experience. “We use everything on the island, using local chefs, local food and even working out with coconuts instead of weights.” As spaces are expected to fill up quickly, de Burger encourages people to contact him soon to hold their place.

it a ton of saturated fat and cholesterol, which puts a tremendous strain on your heart and arteries, and can lead to increased cholesterol levels, plaque formation, as well as risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. In addition, carbohydrate is the only nutrient the brain can use to fuel its thought processes, which explains the mental cloudof the Central and South iness many people experiOkanagan / Similkameen ence when limiting their carbohydrate intake. In or-

der to fuel the brain when carbs are not present in the diet, the body breaks down muscle tissue to produce glucose, which in turn lowers metabolism and makes it harder to keep that weight off. As you can see, carbs are a necessary part of any healthy diet. Here is what carbs, good carbs, do for you. They fill you up with very few calories and minimal fat. They provide a quick source of energy

to fuel your body, whether it’s training in your sport, working out at the gym, or walking the dog. They provide essential nutrients, including antioxidants, B vitamins, minerals, and fibre. So what are “good” carbs you ask? The best types are those which are minimally processed and high in fibre—whole grain breads and cereals, brown rice, oatmeal, beans, fruits and vegetables. Avoid overly pro-

cessed carbs that are high in sugar and calories, such as white bread, couscous, and white rice and pasta. An ideal diet consists of 50 to 60 per cent carbohydrate, 20 to 30 per cent fat, and 15 to 30 per cent protein. So choose vegetables and fruit most often, as well as whole grains and cereals, and beans. So to answer your question, say yes to carbs, just be choosy as to which carbs make the cut.

Trauma alters brain and can lead to chronic illness

T

here are many sources of stress or trauma that have a direct impact on brain function. Psychological, emotional, physical, viral, bacterial and chemical just to name a few. Isolated or combined trauma can cause stress overload in the brain. When we reach the “tipping point,” the basic threat and survival mechanisms in the brain become over stimulated. This protective mechanism can become so over stimulated that it physically alters the structure and function within circuits of the limbic system in the brain. Consequently, this cross wiring of neural circuits sends false threat messages to the rest of the body. It also activates a primitive defense system that releases a chronic stream of stress hormones. This influences many body processes involved with emotions, sensory perception, cogni-

Understandably, this can cause various types of breakdown in the systems of the body. Take Lauren for instance. She is 56 years old and had suffered from a variety of emotional and physical traumas that led to limbic system imbalance in her brain. In 2001, managing illness became her full time job. Although Lauren had suffered from ill health since childhood, it was the unique combination of triggers in 2001 that really heightened limbic system dysfunction.

Lauren was under an extreme amount of stress at work and was also going through a divorce. That same year her mother died from cancer and they renovated the building where she worked. The chemicals used in the renovations were the straw that broke the camel’s back. The trauma affected the threat mechanisms in Lauren’s brain and her brain got stuck in extreme survival mode. This over activated threat mechanism was skewing her sensory perception and robbing her body of the necessary energy needed to rest, digest and regenerate. As a result, Lauren’s complete focus was on how she could manage to get through another day. She had very little energy for anything else. In fact, there were many days where she didn’t want to go on living anymore. Life just seemed too hard. She went from one specialist to the next and

Students making a difference Care and Make It Fair follow-up… By Tye, Ethan and Taysha Last year, our school learned about orphans in Uganda. We raised $500 to have a garden built for an orphanage. This year at the Care and Make It Fair forum, we found out about our garden. There were 118 children living in a three room house with 1 adult woman. All they got to eat every day was one serving of oatmeal. They didn’t look happy or healthy and their eyes were droopy. The garden has provided them with fruits and vegetables to supplement their diet. Our school feels like we have made a real difference in some children’s lives!

Skateboard park a reality

By Noah, Kanaan and Rylan Peachland kids have always wanted more exciting things to do in the community. Last year, Mrs. Frey’s Grade 5/6 intermediate class went to a city council meeting and discussed this concern. We were told that there was not much money. We were devastated. Maybe this got them thinking because they came later in the year to ask us what kinds of activities we would be interested in. Most kids wanted a skate park. We were then invited to submit design plans for their consideration! We are proud to announce that in the winter of 2012, Peachland City Council finished our amazing skateboard park! Since the grand opening, to the time you are reading this, the Skate Park is still as busy as can be! This success of this story should also be attributed to former Peachland students who years ago, fundraised thousands of dollars in the hopes that someday a skate park would be a reality. A huge thank you to the Peachland Council for listening and giving us a voice in this project.

Our school crossing guards By Livia, Lauryn, Emma, Aubrey and Madison A. Last year our principal, Mr. Guignard organized a group of students to be crossing guards. Our job is to be out by the crosswalk prepared to assist children cross the road safely before and after school. It has been a great success because the students feel safer and the parents in the community appreciate it very much. For those of us who have worked as crossing guards, it has taught us to be reliable and responsible leaders.

This spring, many SD23schools had the privilege of going to the Kelowna Community Theatre to hear Canadian writer, Eric Walter’s speak. The students read many of his novels in preparation for his visit. Taysha, in Grade 5, summed up the students’ feelings with the following comments: “I really enjoyed Eric Walters, he was a real inspiration. His books are about real life situations. When you read then you feel like you are actually living the experience. When Eric Walters writes a book there are sometimes sad endings and you have to think about the hard decisions people in the book have to make.”

Miss Eisenhut’s Grade 2 class recently completed a research project on technology. The students worked in groups and participated in making up a survey of questions as a group, interviewed our principal and had help from the Grade 4 buddy class. The class was surveyed about the “Internet” and learned the following: 20/20 have the Internet 11/20 use it for information/learning 9/20 use it every day 9/20 couldn’t live without it Mr. Guignard’s was asked…“Could you live without it? Why or why not? His response was …Yes, but it would be a lot of extra work!” Also, here are a few “good and bad” things that Cian, Jack, Mikayla and Riley included on their poster: The “good” thing about the Internet is that it can be used to learn different things. You can use search engines to get information. The Internet can be bad because sometimes it doesn’t work. Sometimes people use it too much or cyber bully on it.

By Rylan, Noah, Aden, Mateja and Tiana Our school has recently got a new mural painted in the gym. The artist is Mr. Dean Lauze from Vancouver, B.C. We think that with this new mural, Peachland students will be proud to call themselves “Peachland Eagles!” This mural has beautifully captured the image of three eagles flying high in the sky. It also carries the pride of our students.

Rainbow trout stocked up for Go Fish Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

EMBATTLED Kelowna RCMP Const. Geoff Mantler faces sentencing today for his assault conviction against Buddy Tavares, and has announced his resignation from the RCMP.

A10 NEWS A COMMUNITY forum titled No Place to Call Home will seek public input on the issue of homeless youth in West Kelowna.

More than 50 students from Shannon Lake Elementary watched excitedly as crews from the Summerland Trout Hatchery—Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. stocked a portion of Shannon Lake with 800 rainbow trout Wednesday. It’s the seventh year in a row the netted off portion at the south end of the lake has been stocked as part of Go Fish: A program that gives young people a chance to fall in love with angling. Each Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Sunday, June 16, kids 15 and under will be given equipment and guid-

ful time in my life with every headache...every time I see a cop,” he told the court during Mantler’s sentencing hearing Tuesday. Tavares was recovering from a brain injury caused by a motorcycle accident when the police officer delivered a hard blow to his face during a poorly executed arrest in January 2011 that was caught on video. “I lost a great deal of recovery the moment I was assaulted by Geoff Mantler,” he said. “I still ask every day why he did this to me and my family.” “Mr. Tavares was a completely innocent individual here,” Crown counsel Will Burrows told the court. “It was very lucky that Mr. Tavares didn’t die considering his frail condition.” Mr. Tavares, he said, “had not the foggiest

idea” why police stopped him that day. What police were told, however, was that they were dealing with a shots fired complaint involving an ex-employee of the Harvest Golf Club. Mantler believed he was dealing with a homicidal man, defence lawyer Neville McDougall said, and it was only later that he learned that Tavares did not pose a threat and was just shooting at geese at the golf course. With the limited information Mantler had at the time of the arrest, he “honestly believed that his life might be in danger,” McDougall said. So when Mantler saw Tavares start to rise slightly from his knees during the arrest, he was concerned Tavares would pull a gun from his waistband, a common place for people to hide weapons, the court heard.   Mantler then chose to kick Tavares in an attempt to “stun him and jump him” and to prevent moving to lethal force, McDougall said. “He honestly thought he was protecting him,” said McDougall. If he had known then what he knows now, “it wouldn’t have happened.” McDougall added. At issue was that the 911 call taker and dispatcher did not convey to

Geoff Mantler officers that Tavares had been shooting at geese that day, said McDougall. Without that information, Mantler believed he was dealing with an “active shooter” and mistakenly believed it was a situation where he should approach Tavares’ vehicle, rather than stay with the protection of his vehicle and wait for backup before making the arrest. That decision put him in a vulnerable position, the court heard. “It was a young, inexperienced officer faced with the most serious of crime…unfortunately, he ended up making a mistake and he’s dealt with that,” said McDougall, who had harsh words for the RCMP’s handling of the case. Not only did responding officers fail to learn the fact Tavares was shooting at geese until later, but no senior officer dealt with the call. Mantler was one of

the most experienced officers, with about three and a half years of service. “I’m not aware of a single effort by RCMP management to deal with any of the errors,” said McDougall. “It appears, at the end of the day, it all falls on Geoff Mantler.” As well, Mantler was never given an opportunity to explain his actions to his boss and was instead escorted out of the building that day, initially on administrative leave, said McDougall. He eventually was suspended without pay and lost his benefits, which were helping pay for counselling. Mantler had also been willing to potentially sit down with investigators to talk about what happened once his lawyer, who was out of town dealing with family business, returned to Kelowna, the court heard. However, a few days later police announced a charge was being recommended against Mantler—just hours before a public rally was set to occur in Kelowna. “It appeared they were more interested in the public outcry,” said McDougall, who then advised against meeting with investigators. Mantler, who was “vilified” after his arrest, left his Kelowna home

Today’s BC Liberals plan to: ✓ Cut the small business tax by 40%, reduce red tape, and expand trade in Asia markets. ✓ Expand the opportunities for students to begin apprenticeships before graduating from high school. ✓ Freeze personal income taxes and the carbon tax for five years.

Geoff Mantler will find out his punishment from the courts today, but it was revealed this week that he will no longer face discipline from the RCMP. Mantler’s lawyer, Neville McDougall, said

Tuesday that Mantler has resigned from the force. “As he is no longer a member of the RCMP, a Code of Conduct can’t be enforced,” said Insp. Rick Flewelling. RCMP officers are governed by the RCMP Code of Conduct, and a Code of Conduct investigation was launched af-

ter Mantler was caught on video kicking a brain-injured Buddy Tavares in the face in early 2011. The process—and any ensuing discipline—had been on hold pending the outcome of Mantler’s court case. But with his resignation—which RCMP say took place March 15—

following the publicity from the case and will suffer financial loss selling his home in this depressed market. Prior to the charge, he was a “shining” star in the RCMP and was described in a performance review as a “top-quality RCMP officer,” McDougall said. But on Jan. 7, 2011, Mantler “ignored or forgot most of his training,” said Burrows, and the kick to the brain-injured man was “shocking and unnecessary.” It was a heat of the moment situation, and Tavares “did nothing to turn up the heat.” And, as the case wound through the courts, rather than “admit what was obvious from the getgo,” Mantler’s defence attacked Tavares’ credibility, said Burrows. The court process, Burrows said, has done “nothing but diminish his (Tavares’) faith in police and the justice system.” Tavares’ frustration was palpable as he spoke to reporters on the courthouse steps. “Poor guy, he’s the victim,” he said of Mantler. When asked about Mantler’s explanation about why he kicked him, Tavares said: “I’ve seen a lot of God-damned stupid in my life. This tops all of it.”

that disciplinary process will not resume. The court heard Tuesday that the RCMP had been seeking Mantler’s dismissal from the police force. His legal punishment was also discussed in court Tuesday, with sentencing submissions being presented to Judge Greg Koturbash. Crown counsel Will Burrows indicated he was seeking a suspended sentence and 18 months probation for the former police officer. Suggested conditions of probation include no contact with Tavares, except to write a letter of apology or to participate in victim-offender reconciliation. As well, Crown is suggesting 40 to 60 hours of community work or a fine, plus a firearms prohibition. McDougall suggested a conditional discharge during sentencing submissions. That would mean that Mantler would not have a criminal conviction provided he followed the requirements of the conditional discharge.

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

For several years, volunteers from Westbank United Church and St. George’s Anglican Church have been serving meals to the youth at the West Kelowna Boys and Girls Club. Last fall the volunteers learned a handful of those they were serving didn’t have any place to call home. “It was brought to our attention that there were two youth who were living in a tent all throughout the winter months,” said Audrey Frisken. “A group of us decided that the community at large likely doesn’t know that such a thing is going on…we decided to have a public information forum.” Frisken, a member of the forum’s planning committee, said there are several other kids who are homeless as well; however, they opt to “couch-surf” rather than stay outdoors in tents. “Some of them are in middle school, most of them are in senior high. Some are anywhere up to age 24— most services only last until age 18,” said Frisken. The forum—No Place to Call Home—takes place Tuesday, May 7 at the Westbank Lions Community Centre. Representatives from the Boys and Girls Club, the Canadian Mental Health Association, the RCMP, Kelowna Gospel Mission and several other organizations will be on hand at the forum. All West Kelowna residents are invited to attend. Frisken hopes the session will motivate the community to get involved with the issue. She added ultimately the goal is to get an emergency shelter on the Westside and, eventually, longer term services for youth to take advantage of.

West Kelowna services lacking Resources from A1 spondents indicated they would like to see more resources available to them on the Westside. “Services in the West Kelowna area are long overdue,” commented one individual who filled out the survey. An analysis of the survey indicated counselling, support groups, a women’s resource centre and an emergency shelter were the top requested services to be brought to the Westside. Transportation and distance were identified as the biggest challenges associated with accessing Kelowna services. Participants of last Friday’s forum spent a

portion of the afternoon brainstorming what supports are currently in place for West Kelowna and Peachland women and families, what’s missing, and how that gap can be filled. Micki Smith, project coordinator, thought the forum went well. “I am pleased with the turnout and enthusiasm of participants sharing their thoughts, suggestions and ideas,” said Smith. “I am thinking that the next step will be to compile the information gathered and develop a final draft of the report and for the Elizabeth Fry Society, the Kelowna Women’s Shelter and the Kelowna Family Centre to utilize the information and con-

tacts to develop their strategic plan to move forward.” West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater said he liked a few of the ideas that came out of the forum, including the concept of having several services available under one roof. He advised Smith to present the report, once complete, to council and other community groups that may be able to provide assistance. “Most of what we heard is not a direct municipal responsibility, but we may have a role in facilitating it,” said Findlater. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com
