Enriching the tourist experience

T

he Thompson Okanagan is known for many things by those who live in the region, but tourists around the world may not know just how much there is to do in the area. That’s why tourism operators throughout the region are being asked to work together over the next 10 years to promote the entire area, which stretches as far away as Mount Robson to the north, Osoyoos to the south and all points in between.

The strategy is about attracting people to the Thompson Okanagan for a variety of reasons, from culinary experiences to adventure, to golf and recreation. Tourism operators are being asked to partner together instead of compete against each other and promote the region as one of the best tourism stops in the world. See story page A3

Telling our tourism story to tourists

Kevin Parnell

STAFF REPORTER

A

s Gordon Fitzpatrick sits in his office at Cedar Creek Estate Winery, he watches out over an amazing view of Okanagan Lake and marvels at the spectacular area of the world where he operates his winery. Cyclists cruise by on their bikes as the sun pierces down and begins its rise toward the 30 C mark, bringing more activity onto Okanagan Lake, filling up area golf courses and heating up the region known primarily for its great weather. “As I look out my window, I just think what a wonderful playground we live in,” says Fitzpatrick, the 52-year-old president of Cedar Creek. “First of all, the climate is unbelievable and with the lake and the mountains and the wine and the culinary scene, it’s all very exciting. We are turning heads internationally. But we have other world class tourism products in the region. “The skiing, the golf, there are safaris where you can watch grizzly bears. There is the adven-

A new trail will be unveiled at the winery this year, called the Senator’s Trail, that will take visitors on a guided tour through the vineyard. ture tourism and eco-tourism and the (cycling) gran fondos. It’s an extremely desirable place that most people don’t know about and that’s one of our challenges. We need to make people more aware of what’s here.” And that challenge is being taken on by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Associ-

ation (TOTA), the regional tourism group that represents the region’s 3,200 tourism operators. For the past two years TOTA has been working with all of its stakeholders, developing a new 10 year plan to help the tourism industry grow from what is now a seasonal industry to one that can sustain itself outside of the

four month peak period. According to TOTA, every organization that works in tourism and every jurisdiction in the region has signed off on the plan that asks for cooperation rather than competition among the tourism operators in the Thompson Okanagan. “We need tourism operators to see that the

competition is not in the room or across the street but in fact the competition is in Arizona, or New Zealand or Australia,” says Glenn Mandziuk, the president and CEO of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. “There has to be a principle that in order to achieve success we need to work together. We need

to package together and promote together because the goal is to get on the radar screen of visitors and get them to come to the area.” ••• In the Kelowna office of TOTA, Mandziuk points out a map of the region, one of six tourism regions in the province. It’s massive, rough-

ly the size of Ireland, and its features span both ends of the spectrum, from the mountain peak of Mt. Robson, to the dessert climes of Osoyoos. TOTA represents 90 communities and hamlets, 28 First Nations groups and over 3,000 tourism operators. There are nine ski hills, almost 90 golf courses and 125 wineries. There are 15,000 fulltime equivalent jobs in tourism in the region and it generates $1.75 billion in direct revenue each year, making it the largest economic sector in the Thompson Okanagan. “We have a very diverse product,” says Mandziuk. “From a geographic point of view it’s really amazing that you can have the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies all the way to a true dessert in Osoyoos. “All of these areas are in different phases of their maturity. There are some areas that are generating full-on and some that are just emerging as tourism destinations. We had to create a plan that resonated in every jurisdiction in the region.”

See Tourism A4

TOTA outlines strategy to help embrace the potential for tourism growth

The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association’s new 10 year strategy is called Embracing Our Potential. It lays out five key experience-based themes that tourism operators are asked to work towards: 1. Identify the Iconic. What are the iconic experiences that Thompson Okanagan is known for and sets

it apart from other areas of the world? 2. Enhancing local flavours. The relationship between world class chefs, wine and spirits and local produce makes the Okanagan prime territory for tourists looking for a farm-totable experience. 3. Revealing the story. Allow tourists to learn and absorb the history and

the modern culture of the region. 4. Expanding personal horizons. Tourists are seeking enriching opportunities to learn and have interactive experiences. 5. Building authenticity. This allows tourists to understand a destination’s culture, heritage, history and identity through authentic experien-

ces. The plan also identifies three specific types of tourists that tourism operators should market to. 1. Free spirits, 18- to 34-year-olds with higher than average income that are driven, open-minded, fun loving, spontaneous and adventurous. 2. Cultural explorers, 35- to

Developing a new 10 year vision, TOTA had to take a hard look at the past tourism practices and how people outside of the region view the area. Focus sessions were held in Vancouver, Calgary and Seattle, asking them about the perception of the area. “We asked people their perception of the region for the past 15 years and the first word to come out of their mouths is that it’s hot,” says Mandziuk. “They don’t think of us as anything more than a place to go to the beach. We need to change their image. We need to deepen the story as to what we stand for as a region because we know we stand for a helluva lot more than, ‘It’s hot.’” Another area TOTA looked at was revenue because, as Mandziuk says, despite the fact that rev-

Glenn Mandziuk enue was on the rise, 80 per cent of the money made in tourism is made in just a four-month period, leaving tourism operators not much chance to keep employees on during the soft, shoulder seasons. “The industry has been plagued by the fact it is extraordinarily seasonal,” says Mandziuk. “It’s not sustainable in the sense that you can’t keep your labour yearround, you can’t get funding from the bank for an expansion because they

don’t know if you can pay your mortgage. We need to change the way we are doing business and we can do that by creating experiences.” Mandziuk says that by creating experiences that tourists want and marketing those experiences to a specific consumer (see TOTA story page A3), the region will become known for more than just heat in the next decade. ••• Back at the Cedar Creek Estate Winery, Gordon Fitzpatrick is excited about several new ideas that will be unveiled this year at the winery and are designed to give visitors the experience of an authentic look at the wine making industry. A new vineyard trail, called the Senator’s Trail, is named after Gordon’s father Ross, a retired Canadian senator who, at 80 years of age, still walks the property every mor-

ning. The trail will take people amongst the vines with guides and signage explaining the story of Cedar Creek. “That will be another level of experience and it will be authentic,” says Fitzpatrick. “It makes a big difference when you can kick the dirt and see where the grapes come from and provide interesting stories. “We want to intrigue people with what we do. We have a lot of great stories to tell.” The telling or stories is one of the pillars of the new 10 year tourism plan. Stories of natural and cultural heritage give tourists an emotional connection to an area and more and more visitors are looking to make a connection with the area they are visiting. “We’ve done a very poor job of telling our stories,” says Madnziuk. “The tourism consumer really wants to understand where they are going and really immerse themselves in it.” Cedar Creek will also dabble in an emerging tourism industry using farm to table principles that utilize locally grown food in its restaurant. Putting local wine and food together is something that will help wineries extend into the tourism shoulder season and work towards helping the tourism industry’s seasonal problems. “I think that will be the next step in our evolution,” said Fitzpatrick. “In addition to being a very unique grape growing climate, there are lots of other produce that we do extremely well in the region so that can really raise the bar.” In the end, TOTA believes that the key is having everyone working together on changing the way tourists view the Thompson Okanagan will ultimately increase the impact of the tourism industry. “We can’t keep promoting summer, sun and fun,” said Mandziuk. “While that’s important and we can’t lose that, we need to add a new dimension to our marketing and our product developments. The exciting thing is people are embracing it and that’s because the timing was right. “The biggest thing is if we work as a collective around this for the next 10 years our image will change.”

Traffic violation stop leads to bigger crime

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Two people have been arrested after a Kelowna RCMP officer unwit-

tingly discovered a pair of thieves making their escape. In the early hours of Wednesday morning, a West Kelowna RCMP of-

ExtENdEd!

ficer was on patrol when he pulled over a Chevy Silverado for a burnt out headlight. The vehicle stopped in the 1900-block of Highway 97 South and the officer soon discovered it had been reported stolen from the Dilworth Centre parking lot five days earlier. “Police never really know what they’re going to be dealing with when they stop a vehicle,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. “This is just one more example of how taking the initiative on a simple

traffic violation can have greater results and may even solve other crimes.” As it would turn out, a 38-year-old Calgary man named James Beecher, who was riding passenger when the truck was pulled over, and his alleged accomplice, 44-year-old Michelle Laurence, may have been up to more than ripping off cars. As morning arrived and Okanagan residents headed to work, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a break-andenter at the Great Canadian Oil Change locat-

ed at 1920 Old Okanagan Highway. The front glass door had been smashed and the safe damaged. Video surveillance showed a man who is alleged to be Beecher exiting the passenger’s side of a blue Chevy Silverado and using a sledge hammer to break into the store at 2 a.m., just minutes before police pulled the truck over arrested him and Laurence. It appears that the pair were stopped by police while driving away from the Great Canadian Oil Change.

Don’t carelessly discard butts After receiving several recent reports of people who toss lit cigarette butts outside their vehicles, Kelowna RCMP want to remind the public of the dangers associated with that kind of careless act in the midst of an Okanagan heat wave. The police say such complaints will be treated “very seriously,” with a follow-up investigation carried out when there is sufficient evidence to do so. “Time may have faded the memories of some but for those who lost their homes in the Okanagan Mountain Park fire of 2003 or in the wildfires since,

buy one, get one

specials

those memories will never fade,” said an RCMP news release. “Where grounds exist, the RCMP will enforce fines under the Motor Vehicle Act and the Wildfire Act… Fines under the Wildfire Act may exceed $5,000 and persons found responsible for causing a fire may be subject to a fine of up to $1 million and/or up to three years imprisonment.” If you see someone toss a lit cigarette butt out of their car window, police want the public to record the vehicle licence plate number and notify police.

▼ COURT

Hells Angels involvement forces judge to ponder assault sentence

Cheryl Wierda

CONTRIBUTOR

A Kelowna justice has reserved his sentencing decision in the case of a Hells Angel who pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in the beating of a local father. “As much as I would like to give a decision today, I don’t know that I can adequately address the issues,” said Justice Allan Betton on Wednesday afternoon during the sentencing hearing for Joseph Bruce Skreptak. The hearing Wednesday, which centred around Skreptak’s treatment in prison and whether that warrants enhanced credit, as well as what weight his membership in the Hells Angels should be given, came more than two months after lawyers first presented sentencing positions to the justice. At the February hearing, Crown asked for a jail sentence of three years for the 47 year old, who punched a father in the face while trying to extract a confession from the man’s son on Nov. 1, 2010. The boy knew about Skreptak’s membership in the Hells Angels, the court heard. The confrontation centred around $10,000 in jewelry that had gone missing from Skreptak’s home and ended with the father suffering fractures to the bones around his eye. Defence argued for a “high provincial sentence.” Provincial jail time

News from your community Capital News

maxes out at two years less a day. Defence also sought credit for the 21 months Skreptak had spent on house arrest and asked for enhanced credit at a ratio of 1.5 to 1 for the 111 days Skreptak spent in jail. The court heard about a number of complaints Skreptak made about his conditions in jail to support the application for enhanced credit. The Crown shot back

yesterday with an affidavit from prison and RCMP officials countering a number of the complaints, leading to frustration from the justice about what to consider fact. “You’re throwing all this on my lap and telling me to figure it out,” Betton said at one point. Betton also wrestled with Skreptak’s Hells Angels membership during arguments Wednesday. It is “naive,” he said,

to think that Skreptak’s membership is “inconsequential” when considering his character as part of determining sentence. “There is a public perception of what that means and it’s not, ‘Hey, we love motorcycles,’” said Betton. Skreptak’s case has been put over to June 24 to set a date for sentencing, but it is expected that sentencing may happen before that day.

diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2011, Forsyth decided it would be a good idea to do something unique to help raise money for the cause. Though he’d never sported a beard previously, he began to grow out his facial hair and used it as a conversation starter to talk about what his brother was going through and why he was raising money. He said those conversations allowed him to break down misconceptions about the disease, and were often equally as valuable as the donations themselves. “I started learning there are different types of schizophrenia and

will go toward education. “It’ll be directed toward our education programs for people recovering from mental illness,” said Kennedy. “We also do education programs for the public, so they understand and are more sympathetic and open to people with illnesses and avoid stigma.” David Madison, board member of the BCSS— Kelowna, said the ultimate goal is changing people’s misconceptions about mental illness. “Alfred Hitchcock made a great film called Psycho. It’s a wonderful film, but it didn’t do us much good,” said Madison, adding media coverage of criminals who suffer from mental illnesses has the same effect. “It damages us—we have to overcome this type of adverse publicity.” He noted many famous people through history—such as Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill—suffered from mental illness. “There’s nothing wrong with the intellectual part of people who suffer from mental illness. (That’s the message) we have to bring to the public.” wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com

▼ ELECTION

Conservative upset by Kelowna mayor Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna-Lake Country’s B.C. Conservative candidate says he was “shocked” to hear Kelowna’s mayor on the radio last week endorsing the city’s three incumbent Liberal MLAs. And Graeme James feels if there is an NDP government elected May 14, the mayor’s comments will come back to haunt this area. James, a former Kelowna city councillor who served under mayor Sharon Shepherd, called the comments by Gray last week on a local radio talk show a “an abuse of his position” and “anti-democratic.” “I was shocked and extremely surprised when Mayor Walter Gray basically endorsed the current three local MLAs on a radio talk show earlier this week,” said James. “I think it is a discouraging breach of privilege for a current

mayor to endorse anyone during a provincial or federal election, and Walter should know that better than anyone. “He is not a rookie in this game. That is an abuse of his position and power, anti-democratic, and wrong.” James said if the public opinion polls are right and there is an NDP government after next Tuesday’s election, it could be the people of Kelowna who pay the price for what he called Gray’s “indiscretion.” “The mayor has effectively alienated both groups (the NDP and the B.C. Conservatives) to the detriment of the citizens of Kelowna,” said James on Thursday. “Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, and that’s why we have a private ballot. But as mayor, he needs to represent all constituents.” Earlier this week, NDP leader Adrian Dix, during a stop in Kelowna, brushed off concerns

about Gray voicing a radio advertisement in which he praised the work all three Liberal candidates here—first-term incumbents Steve Thomson (Kelowna-Mission), Norm Letnick (Kelowna-Lake Country and Ben Stewart (Westside-Kelowna)—saying Gray’s politics are well known. “He’s been a long-time Liberal supporter,” said Dix of Gray. “I’m not surprised.” Gray has been reported as saying his aim was not to say he is supporting the Liberal Party but rather to acknowledge the cooperation and support the three MLAs have given to the city and demonstrated while working on local issues over the last four years. Gray said he considered it a way of thanking Letnick, Stewart and Thomson, who have dubbed themselves Team Okanagan and have collectively lobbied for millions of dollars in funding for numerous local infrastructure projects.

The ad is one of a series featuring well-known local voices supporting the re-election of Letnick, Thomson and Stewart. While not taking credit for all that has been funded here since the Liberals took power in 2001, the MLA incumbents have pointed to 17 priority infrastructure projects the trio released two years ago, noting half have now been funded. They say $1.5 billion has been spend on this riding in the last 12 years under the Liberal government, which they claim is five times the amount spent here under the former NDP government from 1991to 2001. A large portion of that funding has gone to Kelowna General Hospital to build the $280-million Millennium patient care tower, the $45-million UBCO clinical campus and the $380-million Interior Heart and Surgical Centre, which is currently under construction.

It is as if noe one wants to talk about it. I took my daughter, whoi is blind, to the meeting so shet could meet all the candidates.S As sighted people we can puts a face to name, she can’t. Bute there is nothing like a hand-d shake and speaking directly to someone, that one can assess a candidate and consider where to cast their ballot. While we were disappointed with the missing candidates, it was a good discussion with the remaining candidates. The level of intelligence and passion of the candidates present was evident. Did they take advantage of the situation in a negative manner? No. In fact, it was refreshing to witness a level of civility and humour. Do I really need to know why for the no-shows? Not really. When I take time out of a busy day to meet a candidate, there is an expectation

NDP message to voters: Just trust us

W

hen Adrian Dix took over as B.C. NDP leader two years ago, he struggled to communicate, especially in the sound bites of radio and TV. There was a running joke in the legislature press gallery: It didn’t matter what question you asked him, you got a six-minute answer that ended with the evils of log exports. Even more than under Carole James, the NDP railed against log exports. “B.C. logs for B.C. jobs” became one of Dix’s favourite slogans. As the election approached, another Dixism was heard daily: “Say what you’re going to do, say how you’re going to pay for it.”

So it was a surprise a few weeks ago when the NDP signaled it would essentially not offer a policy on log exports. They’re going to meet with “stakeholders” and Tom come up with a plan afFletcher ter they get a majority government. This is exactly the same non-policy the NDP had in 2009. They don’t have an answer to the industry’s point that the high price gained by premium logs in foreign markets is what keeps many loggers working, and subsidizes the harvest of other logs for B.C. coastal mills. Another thing the NDP doesn’t like is private power development. This issue featured prominently in the NDP leadership contest two years ago.

VICTORIA VIEWS

Leadership contender Mike Farnworth told the party faithful he would study independent power purchase contracts, and if he found that they are not in the public interest, he would “mend them or end them.” Another leadership hopeful, energy critic John Horgan, allowed that he would “break” contracts if necessary. By this spring, Dix had a new non-position on power purchase contracts. He will “assess them and address them.” The printed platform promises a review “within the limits of existing contracts.” Either they plan to risk a costly legal battle, or they’re just paying lip service. All you have to do to find out is elect them. Labour code changes are another blank slate. A memo from the B.C. Federation of Labour executive to members last year described how they

C

were working closely with the NDP to rewrite B.C. labour law. The NDP election platform punts this issue until after the election as well, promising an independent expert panel to decide on issues like whether to end secret-ballot votes for union certification. This isn’t just a bad idea, it’s a 30-year-old bad idea. It’s based on the destructive old notion that employers are the enemy of workers, and only a union can protect them. The long decline of union membership in the private sector isn’t caused by employer bullying or secret-ballot votes that protect employees’ freedom of choice. The cause is global competition. The only protection workers have from that is their own efficiency.

▼ SENIORS CENTRE AT PRC

A voice to counter senior centre negativity To the editor: Just recently as I was at the new Parkinson Activity Centre I was reminded again of the beautiful addition this new venue is providing for the enjoyment of adults in Kelowna. Driving up to the centre there is a generous amount of parking space right in front of the entrance. The building is surrounded by a huge

wrap-around deck with lush greenery beyond and near the entrance comfortable seating arrangements covered with fresh green umbrellas to enjoy the outdoors with other members. The generous foyer provides another lovely seating area to mix and mingle over coffee or lunch served by cheerful volunteers. I started with an hour

of terrific physio instruction in a beautiful and spacious exercise room. While doing my exercise on the floor I marvelled over the beautiful woodwork incorporated in the finish of the ceiling. Afterwards, I enjoyed a lovely soup for lunch out on the sunny terrace under one of the colourful umbrellas while meeting up with kindred spirits. I understand there

have been some negative letters to the editor about the uprooting of the ‘good old’ Water Street Senior Centre to this new home next to Parkinson Rec Centre. OK, the new PAC is not downtown or near the lake, but the new location has it’s own merits. It is centrally located, has lots of parking space, is surrounded by beautiful greenery and has a large

park out back including a number of tennis courts. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the new PAC and know I will frequent this fabulous facility more often. It’s a fine addition to the enjoyment for adults in Kelowna and I hope some of the reluctant individuals will come to enjoy it as well. Ella van Dinther, Kelowna

▼ PROVINCIAL ELECTION

Liberals wrong to promote lowest income taxes To the editor: The Liberal government indicates B.C. has the lowest personal taxes in Canada for wage earners under $120,000. What they are not telling us is that this is only true for single incomes. Should your family consist of a single wage earner, a spouse and children the result is quite dif-

ferent if you look at the taxes minus the tax credit exemptions—or what we really pay. If we compare the taxes between Alberta and B.C. we find the personal tax credit exemptions to be $17,282 (Alta) $11,354 (B.C.) and for dependents $17,282 (Alta) and $9,964 (B.C.). The percentage of

these values you can claim in Alberta is 10 per cent and only 5.06 per cent in B.C. It is these higher personal exemptions and per cent you can claim that makes a big difference in the amount that you must pay. Should your income be $70,000 with two exemptions (spouse and

one child) you would pay $1,014 less in Alberta. Same income but one additional child would net a difference of $2,238 less tax paid in Alberta. These numbers along with how they were calculated were sent to the Office of the Premier asking for an explanation. This was not provided. While the Liberals, in

their election promises, are committing to no increase in personal taxes for five years, voters must also be aware what numbers are being used and how the comparisons are being made. In this case ‘Families First’ means they pay more T. Kinsman, West Kelowna

I should mention that the passing lanes are a blessing as they allow the speeders to get out of view of the beauty of this drive, which includes the goat. We also should mention that trucks were the dominant force of these speed demons who have no patience with those such as we who drive at the posted speed. I wonder if they actually can tell the difference between km/h and

mph? I guess not as their education did not include that portion of the curriculum. I feel so bad as I read of the toll we have in accidents on the road. Things could be worse as speeders “get my goat” but we can hope that we all get to play a round of golf, versus the game of “chicken” on the highway. Ron Barnard, West Kelowna

NDP’s strategy out of date Fletcher from A10 Balancing the budget? An NDP government will strive to do that over “the business cycle,” says finance critic Bruce Ralston. Old-timers might remember this one. It’s taken from the NDP’s 1991 election platform. Yes, 22 years ago there was a widespread

four-year cycle of commodity prices and other economic determinants. Whatever was left of that dusty, faded picture was erased with the financial collapse of 2008. If you still believe in a predictable “business cycle,” you may be willing to accept that an NDPled B.C. will become the first jurisdiction in hu-

ate poverty, by setting annual targets and paying out borrowed money to low-income parents. On ferries, fracking, union contracts, capital construction and other weighty matters, the NDP’s answer is the same: trust us. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter for Black Press.

To the editor: In response to the letter from Del Funk, in Friday, May 3, Capital News (West Kelowna Needs a Heart). I personally feel that Westbank is hardly central to the entire area of the District of West Kelowna. I would also point out that West Kelowna is not a town but a district, a district which stretches all the way from the Peachland border to halfway to

Vernon. I think a city hall should be located further north on Highway 97. However, should that not be an option, my suggestion would be to use the former Zellers in the Extra Foods Mall. This area has roads, parking and transit in place and the site is large enough to support such a project. Pam Baumgartner, Westbank

H

anging out between a couple of trees is a terrific way to camp. Forget this whole idea of trying to find a spot to sleep between rocks and pine cones, where the dampness and critters have easy access to your hide. Tents are a thing of the past, except perhaps to change in. Today, campers are into mid-air camping. And, although I confess I haven’t tried these ones, I have used hammocks and I love the idea of not trying to wrestle with the ground. In fact, it sounds even better than a mattress for comfort. Now, I’m not talking about your standard, plastic rope net hammock that you buy for dad for Father’s Day. This is so much more comfortable, you

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves might want to buy one for mom for Mother’s Day. (You can see where my bias lies, and mine are both gone so there won’t be any hurt feelings here…) A couple of fit-looking young people camped out near us on the weekend and pulled out a couple of ropes from the car to set up camp. As they unravelled the two ropes, it was like the butterfly making her way out of her chrysalis. What appeared, within minutes, was a pretty skookum-looking ham-

mock covered in a light diamond-shaped rain fly, strung between a couple of trees. Apparently, it’s made right here in B.C. too. Pretty nifty. They’re called Hennessy Hammocks and they’re pretty versatile as well as wrapping up into an extremely small and light weight package for backpacking. There are a few politicians around the province who will have lots of time to use these innovative little tent hammocks after the dust has settled from Tuesday’s provincial election.

Now B.C.’s 42,000 members of the B.C. Wildlife Federation can hold the feet of whichever party ends up in the ‘hotseat’ to the fire on these issues, and members of the Oceola club are to be commended for ensuring they have responses to their questions from the candidates. The next question is, have you asked your questions of your candidates yet and gotten answers? There’s only three days left before election day and it’s your turn to put your foot where your mouth is, so better be prepared.

CONGRATS

A couple of local outdoors enthusiasts brought home awards from last week’s BCWF convention in Richmond. Congratulations to Bethany Froehlich, of the Peachland Sportsman’s Association, for her receipt of the Frank Shannon Junior Conservation Award for all her efforts to

organize events to introduce youngsters to the sports of hunting and fishing, and to lobby government to change legislation that is not benefiting the fish and wildlife resource. She and her entire family were presented with this year’s Sportsman of the Year award by the PSA last month as well. We should also be very proud of an incredibly passionate outdoors person, who looks out for our interests in lobbying governments as well as is involved in a raft of volunteer activities with the Oceola Fish and Game Club and as a director on the board of the BCWF. Jesse Zeman was presented with the President’s Award for volunteer contributions at the convention. Congrats Jesse.

WEATHER

With the unseasonably warm weather, there’s some good news and some bad news. First, I notice the spring wild-

flowers immediately withered and keeled over, figuring that summer was here and it was already time for them to return to the earth and get ready for next year’s bloom period. In cooler springs, their bloom can last and last, but this year it’ll be shortlived for many. The good news is that the weather is glorious for getting out and enjoying the outdoors. Just be aware that creek levels have risen rapidly with melting snow, so keep back from the edges and do restrain children and pets as well. It’s not wise to raft down rivers like Mission Creek when it’s in full rage like this. Aside from the drowning possibility, you may bump hard against the underside of a bridge when the water’s as high as it is. And, it’s still rising. Be careful out there. Stay alive and vote.

I assume that each candidate toed the party line in responding to these questions on fish and wildlife policy issues, so that all the local candidates’ answers would be similar, no matter what riding they’re running in. Question one asked if candidates favoured returning revenue from licence fees to the resource instead of it going into general revenue and all agreed. Question two asked about support for a science-based approach to fish and wildlife management, and all said yes. Question three was about residents’ priority in access and harvesting of fish and wildlife, and all supported resident priority. Question four asked about support for a landscape-level approach to resource extraction and use and all did. Question five asked about compensation from revenues from extraction going to re-investment in fish and wildlife habitat and management and all

...Continued from previous week. If the valve opens manually then the problem is most likely a failed solenoid or a wiring problem. First check the wire connections at the valve. If they look corroded remove the connectors and redo the connections. If this does not solve the problem unscrew the solenoid from the valve (after turning off the water), using a 9V battery you can hold one wire from the solenoid to one contact on the battery and the other wire to the second contact. You should hear a strong click and see the plunger move up and down when you apply power to the solenoid. If this does not happen, bring your solenoid on down to visit us and we will test to confirm it needs replacement.

WORKING TOGETHER FOR YOUR FUTURE! We believe that British Columbia’s future is at a crossroads. The choice is clear. We must keep moving forward to a debt-free B.C. This election boils down to a very simple decision…do you want a tax and recklessly spend ndp government, or a strong financially focused government that believes a strong economy means a secure tomorrow.

If the solenoid appears to be fine, then you need to check to see if you are getting power from the controller to the solenoid. You can use the solenoid that you just tested to check to see if there is power at the controller. Using the manual setting on the controller, turn on the station for the valve that is not functioning and touch one of the solenoid wires to the COM port on the controller and the other wire to the station port of the valve that is not functioning. If the solenoid activates then you most likely have a wiring issue. This will most likely involve digging in a new wire to the valve. If the problem is with the controller, you can move the wire to an unused station in the controller or replace the controller.

the Okanagan is attractive to delegates because of its representation as a biodiversity hotspot, and home to many endangered species. A number of delegates will be professors who will bring their students to present on their latest research which often builds on that of their experienced professors. As well, he says there will be younger professors who are pushing the envelope, in terms of innovative thinking and research. More than 20 UBC grad and undergrad students will be presenting their latest research. Keynote speakers include Pierre Legendre, biology professor at the University of Montreal, who will receive the CSEE President’s Award for his contributions to advancing ecology and evolutionary biology research.

try’s 2013 Help Hunger Disappear champion. The Okanagan College team is the only Enactus team in Canada to have won the challenge, which was created four years ago with support from Campbell Company of Canada. The team won the inaugural challenge in 2010 and has continued to dominate the hunger relief initiative for four consecutive years. The team was presented with their award last night at the national Enactus exposition in Toronto, where they are vying for three additional national awards in the areas of the Entrepreneurship Challenge, EcoLiving Green Challenge, and as the overall National team. “The Enactus Okanagan College team stood out again this year for their continued teamwork and commitment to lasting hunger solutions in their community,” said Mark Childs, vice-president of marketing, Campbell Company of Canada. “Their boundless energy, passion and creativity continue to impress —they are truly role models for us all.” The team from Okanagan College was recognized for their work to raise more than 54,000 pounds of food for food banks throughout the region. Creating and delivering 11 hunger relief initiatives, the Enactus Okanagan College students implemented projects in Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton. Their projects ranged

‘‘

EVERYONE AT OKANAGAN COLLEGE IS EXTREMELY PROUD OF THE GOOD WORK OUR STUDENTS ARE DOING TO TRANSFORM THEIR COMMUNITIES. Jim Hamilton, Okanagan College president

from the Farm Bag Fundraiser, in which the students work with local farmers to distribute local produce, making farming more viable and sustainable through a franchisable model, to MOMentum, which empowers single mothers with information about how to cook healthy and affordable meals and connects them with financial skills to better manage their lives. “Everyone at Okanagan College is extremely proud of the good work our students are doing to transform their communities,” said college president Jim Hamilton. “…the award is the collaboration and support our students receive from the many organizations, schools and non-profits they work with to develop their hunger relief projects. “Partnerships of this kind are incredibly important to their education and to creating sustainable, long-term change in our communities.”

Offering more information about Yoga fundraiser put on by KSS students tumour causing genetic disorder Most people have heard of cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease. Yet, NF (neurofibromatosis) is more prevalent than those three conditions combined. Neurofibromatosis is the term for three distinct genetic disorders: NF1, NF2 and Schwannomatosis. All forms of NF can occur spontaneously from a genetic mutation, or be inherited. NF causes tumours to grow on nerve endings throughout the body. The B.C. Neurofibromatosis Foundation (BCNF) provides information and

Kelowna Senior Secondary’s The Me to We Club will host a Mother’s Day-themed yoga class fundraiser on Saturday, May 11. The school club is focused on making a difference for both local and

Two members of the BCNF board of directors from Kelowna, Gerry Stoltz and Betty Hersey, will man an information booth at Orchard Park Mall, near the Cleo store, on Saturday, May 11, to help spread the word about this little-known condition. Stoltz’s wife Linda has NF1, and Hersey’s adult daughter Sarah has NF2. For more information, contact Betty Hersey at 250-869-1572.

Water-wise garden can reduce maintenance tasks

I

n my last column, I asked if your garden was water-wise and gave three clues that would help me recognize if it was. Those clues were all bare ground covered with a layer of mulch, plants grouped by water needs, and healthy plants growing in their ideal conditions. These are all aspects of xeriscape gardening. Another is efficient irrigation. Last week, the editor put up a sub-heading ‘Too much water stunts plant growth’ which did not relate to the topic of my column. In fact, too much water causes rampant growth of most plants, which leads to more pruning, staking, weeding and mowing tasks. In other words, too much water creates make-

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele work projects taking up your time needlessly or costing you a lot more if you are paying for landscape maintenance. Another practice that can create more work is over-fertilizing. This can have the same effect as over-watering. Mulching all your gardens with organic mulch such as Ogogrow, Nature’s Gold, Glengrow, or mulch from Classic Compost will supply all the nutrients your plants need in a slow, steady release over the whole season. It also reduces weed growth. One half to one inch of any of these spread over lawn in spring or fall, or both, is all the lawn needs, building up the soil at the same time, something chemical fertilizers cannot do. Rock mulch in your gardens can’t feed your plants or the soil. Unfortunately a common misconception is that xeriscape gardens always have rock mulch. Rock mulch has several disadvantages. It greatly increases the heat around your plants, making them need more water. If they are not heat loving plants, they will also be very stressed. A Japanese maple, native to the moist climate of Japan, will really strug-

gle, whereas lavender, native to the Mediterranean, will be quite happy. Rock mulch will also throw excessive heat onto any adjacent buildings increasing the need for air conditioning. Perhaps the biggest disadvantage of rock mulch is the maintenance challenge. No matter how well you clear out weeds and lay down landscape fabric before the rocks are spread, weeds will grow from dust and seeds blowing in. Weeding out of rocks is a nasty, tedious task. If there are any trees or plants nearby that drop leaves, spent flowers, or seeds, the clean-up can be a nightmare. If you want to make changes to the landscape, it is a daunting task to move the rocks and cut through the fabric. Think how much easier maintenance and renovations are in a garden simply mulched with organic matter. Next week I will write about minimizing pruning tasks. ••• The Friends of the Summerland Ornamental Gardens Mother’s Day plant sale is this Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the beautiful gardens above the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre. Go early if you are looking for xeriscape plants. Gwen Steele is executive director of the non-profit Okanagan Xeriscape Association. www.okanaganxeriscape.org

Simpler life brings fences, lyrics

Jennifer Smith

STAFF REPORTER

Cam Penner and his “sweetheart” wanted to build a deer fence, writing a new record was more of a side note. To Build A Fire is what happens when you take a man from Calgary back to the land for a mini homestead experiment, he buys a cabin and sets forth to shake the floor boards and the cobwebs of detached metropolitan existence from a body and soul rooted in the simple things. “We were looking for a place with a lot of touring bands and a lot of heart,” said Penner, who originates from Manitoba and Saskatchewan but feels he’s found solace in backwoods B.C. Sharp turns and a pinch of adventure have worked out well for this guitar player, so the move to the Kootenays seemed less a dive into a mighty chasm, more a logical leap to good friends, good community and a land where the politics make sense. Penner made a similar move five years ago after he left a life of working in homeless shelters to become a homeless minstrel of sorts himself, touring Europe and North America playing music on a circuitous path that eventually found him back where he started in Calgary, though with a young family. Since the birth of his now two-year-old daughter, he says he’s felt a need to build deer fences, stick his hands in the dirt and create the kind

of music that comes from putting in an honest day’s work then spontaneously pounding through a new tune. He sends his family away when it comes time to write. “I kind of like not having connections to anything but the music,” he said. “It’s an experience. It’s not a selfish thing, that’s just the way me and John work best.” John Wood has been playing with Penner for years and it took the pair nine days to create To Build A Fire. The resulting album is what Penner likes to term “honest, immediate and intentional” and he’s well aware it might take some time for people to really get into its groove. Unlike the candy-pop of commercial radio, this kind of deep-rooted folk is about rhythm and repetition and letting a sound get under one’s skin and rumble through the heart en route to a little foot stomping—and it does take time to settle. Unlike many a singer-songwriter, he doesn’t write collections of love and angst stories one could easily generate over beer or a coffee. “I always say there’s 10,000 ghost stories inside of me and they’ll never leave,” he said. This is the product of a lifetime of studying other lifetimes and the harrowing moments everyone has to learn to survive. Penner said he wound up working with the homeless after hitching a ride with a couple on their way to a Christian hippie commune. He stayed at the commune, fell in love

CAM PENNER has toured Europe and North America and brings his new album to the Streaming Café this month. with the lifestyle and with the raw truth he found working at its women and children’s shelter. This is the foundation for a life’s work. “Say what you want, say what you will, dead man’s words rising up from the dirt. Word from

the wise, word from the mind, glad to be here just glad to be alive,” he sings on the second song of the album titled Memphis. One has the feeling he’s heard those words in the stories and sentiments left unsaid of many a man and woman in from the cold.

This is simple music with a straight forward messages that doesn’t fail to highlight life’s intricacies. Cam Penner plays the Streaming Café on May 25, showcasing his newly released To Build a Fire. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

about a family member who returns home from rehab so that all the other people in the household have to hide their own substance uses and abuses. Hush Hush is also a great country rocker and one of the few up-tempo songs on Annie Up where the gals offer several moody but richly explored songs about lust on I Feel A Sin Comin’ On, stubborn relationships on Unhappily Married, depression on Blues, You’re A Buzzkill and dreams on Hope You’re My Happy Ending. Annie Up—the title suggesting a gang about to mount up—is a tad too ballad-heavy but there is a lighter touch of alt-bluegrass on Damn Thing while the mid-tempo new traditionalist song Loved By A Working Man seems like the obvious next single. This is an album that could have only been made by worldly women who have seen some life and the liner graphics re: a frontier moll gang motif of booze, poker and merry widow lingerie reinforces The Pistol An-

When The Dixie Chicks first connected with Natalie Maines long before they became famous they knew she wasn’t a pure country musician. In fact when the group changed their name from Dixie Chicken—an obscure reference to a Little Feat song—to The Dixie Chicks they were also showing their roots rock stripes. I am not sure what is happening to The Dixie Chicks right now but Maines has released her first solo album, Mother, and it takes its title from a Pink Floyd song from The Wall, and lo and behold if Maines’ new CD liner photo doesn’t also have her passing in front of a massive wall. On Mother, Maines is trying to prove her credentials as a song interpreter with a disc of mostly covers but her performances are hit and miss. The stickered ‘feature’ tracks include a roots rock take of Eddie Vedder’s (Pearl Jam) Without You that features some cool slide guitar work from album co-producer Ben

Harper,while the lesser known Dan Wilson gets covered with a mid-tempo version of Free Life about seizing the moment. But both of these feature songs, as solid as they are, take a while to sink in and are not immediately likable and certainly not the sort of fare that any country radio station would touch. There is a tad too much gravitas on some of these overly moody songs such as the regret-laden Vein In Vain while the take of Jeff Buckley’s Lover, You Should Have Come Over is just a little too heavy both musically and in its self recriminations. However, Maines teams up with Gary Louris of The Jayhawks where they pen the song Come Crying To Me that has a tad more spark even if, again, the song takes a while to become anything approaching an ear worm. There are a couple of rockers here with a punky rendition of Patty Griffin’s Silver Bell while the Ben Harper original, Trained, has an edge that will attract alt-roots rockers. On Mother Natalie Maines is searching for a whole new audience but I am not sure she will connect with this album that really never seems to jump start. C+ mooseman19@telus.net

▼ DOCUMENTARY

Investors sought for filmmaker’s labour of love

Film is based on adaptation of progressive rocker Keith Emerson’s autobiography

Kelowna filmmaker Jason Woodford is raising funds for his documentary “Emerson: Pictures of an Exhibitionist.” The film is an adaptation of progressive rock legend Keith Emerson’s auto-biography of the same name. Emerson was one of the key figures of progressive rock from the late 1960s. He first started out with his own band, The Nice, and then reached super-stardom in the ’70s as a member of Emerson Lake and Palmer. Referenced in popular culture over the decades, the group was just as famously temperamental. The trio broke up officially in 1978, but have had a number of reunions

in the years since, most recently headlining the High Voltage Festival in London, England. in 2010 Woodford got involved in the adaptation documentary project after discovering his dad had gone to school with Emerson. After reading Emerson’s book, Woodford became convinced Emerson’s life story had enough merit to warrant a feature length movie. “It was originally going to be a narrative feature,” Woodford said. “But after interviewing some of the characters from the book it became obvious that there was enough material to turn this more into a documentary, with a sly sense of humour.”

After various stints volunteering with local film groups, and more experience with the film industry since his move from the UK in 2002, Woodford pitched the project to Emerson by showing him one of his short films shot Kelowna. Kelowna has also become one of the film’s shooting locations, as Emerson came up to the Okanagan to help Woodford with his fundraising efforts. They shot non-profits and they shot some linking sequences back in 2009. “It is definitely a labour of love,” said Woodford. “We first started shooting interviews in 2007 and have been working on it as and when we can ever since. “With over 80 hours of footage in the can, we are

now looking at the final few interviews and this is where our last push for funds is coming in. “Harry Shearer (of This is Spinal Tap and The Simpsons) has also shown interest in the project and is willing to provide us with some voice over support. If we can raise our fundraising target, we will have the film finished by the end of this year.” Emerson himself is on board with the film as executive producer and will be writing some new material for the film, however, he has taken a back seat in so far as the direction of the film. “As far as Keith is concerned, we have to do all the work to make this entertaining,” joked Woodford. “And this has been a very independent film from the very beginning.

We pitched the idea, he has given us the rights to his story, but all funds raised have either been personal or raised through social media.” For more information about the fundraising efforts, check out the website www.progrockdoc. com.

ow blessed are we to live where we do, and to reap the rewards of being residents of paradise? On the heels of a ridiculously mild winter (hello global warming), Okanagan residents are now being spoiled with gorgeous weather. Of course, now that the sunshine has finally arrived, it is only a matter of time before everyone starts to whine and snivel about how it is ‘too hot’ to do anything. Personally, Tez and I can’t get enough of the warmth and sunshine and neither can our raised garden beds and flowers. Bring it on! ••• I admit to being fully entertained by the goings on and gnashing in the current provincial election debates (or lack of debates), despite the fact that I think all three political parties are a farce. I basically have little use for our current provincial and federal party politics and the mockery the party system really makes with a true democratic process. But that being said, it’s the only game we have and one we should at least partake in.

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge I firmly believe (despite the ineptness of the current parties and politics involved), that we truly owe it to our war veterans to get out and vote during such elections. If for no other reason than the fact that so many young men and women gave up their lives in the belief that all of us should have a right to vote for free thinking, free speech, and other such now enshrined human rights. I don’t care if you vote for ‘none of the above’ or simply cast a protest vote next week, what matters is that you take full advantage of your privilege to express your opinion and vote. Many a son, brother, father, cousin, uncle, friend, fiancé, high-school sweetheart, neighbour… gave up his or her life so that you have that right— so get off your butt and vote.

day, than never bitch to me later about the government you get. You do have a say! ••• I’m somewhat baffled that despite the fact I live right near the Capri Hotel in Kelowna I am in the latest version of ‘Gracie’s Finger,’ an odd and illogical wedge of downtown Kelowna that for some reason is within the Ben Stewart (Westside) riding.(Gracie’s Finger is in reference to a controversial inclusion in the 1970s of what was then solid Social Credit Party voting territory into the Vancouver home riding for Grace McCarthy, a Social Credit MLA, when it clearly should have been included in a neighbouring riding from a purely geographical viewpoint.) I am not sure how I or Tez will vote yet in our particular riding. That is largely to do, as stated above, with the fact that I do not support any of the parties and believe all three party leaders are inept. Because of that I intend to vote with my heart —which means I will vote for the individual (not the party) whom I believe will give his or her best effort for their constituents. Predictions? I am calling for a NDP

minority government. Locally, I predict Liberal Steve Thomson will reclaim his seat in Kelowna-Mission, and that Ben Stewart will also reclaim his Westside-Kelowna seat, although it may be a tougher fight against the NDP candidate Carole Gordon that was anticipated. The only riding of real contention, locally, that I am interested in is Kelowna-Lake Country, where I believe my former Kelowna city council cohort Graeme James may well slip up the middle between the split votes of the NDP and Liberals to win the riding for the Conservatives. A victory by James would likely be one of the few in the entire province for the Conservatives. I like Graeme. We seldom agreed on anything when we spent three years sitting next to each other at the Kelowna city council table, but we gained a tremendous amount of respect for each other and forged a friendship despite our philosophical differences. James is a man of principals, a man of his word, and never one to take a stance because it is popular. He is forthright, consistent, and a man you can count on. He is no one’s puppet and certainly no one’s yes

man. I wish him well. ••• One of my dearest friends ever, Jim LeGuilloux, is celebrating his latest CD release party on May 17, 18 and 19 at Whisky Jacks in West Kelowna. His latest CD, Everything and The Box it Came In, is a brilliant acoustic album which he wrote and produced himself. I love this album and it will serve Jimmy well. A full CD review will happen soon, but meanwhile I am grooving to several cuts on the album including Coming Home (my favourite) a remix of his superb No Regrets, and Uneasy Sense of Calm. Great stuff Jimmy and hope you have a tremendous CD release bash. ••• Last but not least a happy Mother’s Day to all this Sunday. I am reminded how blessed I was to have such an amazing woman in my life as my mom, Doris Hodge. I miss her dearly. I am reminded of her kindness and caring often when I sit back and admire the patience and love that I see in my wife Teresa and my stepdaughter Lisa. I am not the only one blessed to have you in this world. Thank you.

The provision requires each board of directors for these Crown corporations to have their labour mandate approved by treasury board. These mandates currently are and will still be created independently by the Crown corporations. This is the same criteria that ministries follow to ensure that there is responsible management. Crown corporations have either received, or continue to receive billions of taxpayer dollars every year and the shareholders are the Canadian public. If a Crown corporation were not to be run responsibly, it would be the taxpayer that would ultimately foot the bill. Given these challenging fiscal times, it would be irresponsible of the

Manitoban influence strong at Sun spring camp

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Even though it’s three provinces, two time zones and 1,900 kilometres away, the city of Winnipeg is likely to play a prominent role in the success of the Okanagan Sun in 2013. Between returning players and new recruits, the B.C. Football Conference Club could have as many as 16 players from the Manitoba capital in its lineup this season. All will be testing the waters in Kelowna this weekend at the Sun’s annual spring camp. Among new Winnipeggers already committed to the Sun is Lucas Machado, a 6-foot2, 225-pound linebacker from the St. Paul’s High School Crusaders. Machado, who was key in St. Paul’s run to the Manitoba title in 2011, said the honesty and infectious enthusiasm of new Sun head coach Shane Beatty sold the young linebacker on making the big trip west. “It was Coach Beatty, for sure,” said Machado, 18. “Obviously they have a great support staff there, too, but (Shane) was the

main reason. He was texting me everyday, he’s been very up front and honest and you don’t have to read between the lines with him. He’s made me very excited about being in Kelowna and I’m excited to get started.” Beatty has been working on some other potential key recruits from Winnipeg, many of whom are also being courted by the Vancouver Island Raiders. Six-foot-five quarterback Theo Deezar, along a pair of 6-foot-5 receivers—Zach Regert and Paul Childs—will be at spring camp and are all Winnipeg products who Beatty would love to see wearing orange and brown. “These guys would be impact players,” Beatty said. “All of them are big and strong, and good kids who would be great additions to our team.” The Manitoba capital has provided the Sun with some key players in the past, including the likes of Adam Eckert, Dan Turek and Jordan Fast. As many as six Manitoba natives are expected to return in 2013, including Tommy Howes, Jamie Turek, Sean Mason and Devon Kozar (Por-

tage la Prairie), all of whom proved to be helpful to Beatty when it came to recruiting in their home province. If the Sun end up with 15 or more Manitobans on the roster, it will be unprecedented territory. “We’ve always had a few Winnipeg guys on the team, but nothing I can recall would rival this,” said Sun head coach Jay Christensen. “It’s a combination of things, the guys from Winnipeg who we have playing with us have rallied the troops and have generated a lot of interest in our team. It’s also a bit of a bubble we haven’t seen, where there are a lot of players from there who are available and looking for places to play.” Shane Beatty will conduct his first spring camp as head coach of the Sun this weekend, with between 90 and 110 players expected to go through the paces. Beatty is excited to get a firsthand look at the club’s prospective talent as the Sun looks to rebound from a disappointing 3-and-7 in 2012. “It’s a great opportunity to see what we have and to see what we still need,” said Beatty.

CONTRIBUTED

LINEBACKER Lucas Machado is among a big contingent of Winnipeg-born players who are attending the Okanagan Sun’s spring camp “Camp should answer a lot of questions. I haven’t seen the kids perform yet, so we should get a good evaluation of the talent and a good start to the sea-

son.” Beatty expects 46 to 48 returnees at camp and close to the same number of newcomers, including 20 to 25 from Kelow-

na and area high schools. Practises are set for 9:45 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday at the Apple Bowl/Parkinson practise fields.

On Sunday, practise begins at 9 a.m., followed by a scrimmage that is expected to run until about 1:30 p.m. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

UBC Okanagan makes the grade in Canada West UBC Okanagan’s varsity athletics program has passed its final test.

Young gymnast chalks up titles It was quite a trip for Okanagan Gymnastics Centre member Shane Hiscock, who claimed a couple of titles at the Western Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Winnipeg. The 12-year-old Hiscock claimed the Western Canadian championship in the level 4 male category despite the fact he was competing against many gymnasts who were older than he was. Along with the overall title, Hiscock earned the title of Western Canadian vault champion as well and took home silver medals on floor exercise and the still rings.

Amidst a flurry of eagles, birdies, bogeys and “others” were several

fine approach shots to the Bear’s par 3 holes. Closest to the pin winners were Kevin Carlson (hole 4), Scott Pye (6), Aaron Douville (11) and Monty Lough (14) while Tyler Kristiansen blasted the night’s only long drive on the 10th.

KDFGC indoor range. National-level coach Chuck Land, a KDFGC director, is ecstatic about the standings the juniors registered. His philosophy? “It’s about how dedicated the coaches are. We want them to progress, but we also want them to have fun and enjoy it,” said Land. “This was our first year; our trial run. When people read how well these athletes have done, that will encourage more to join (JOP) in September.” He says a large part of the success of the program in Kelowna is quality coaching. He is assisted by his wife, Dianne, a provincial-level coach and Barry Marciski and Colton Soetaert, experienced archers who hold Archery Canada certification. He is looking forward to training more archers starting in September when the program, held Saturdays, 9-11 a.m., resumes at the club. Regarding the Kelowna group’s placing province-wide, Land said: “They never heard of us, now we are at the top of the heap in their respective categories.”

Junior Olympic archery offers a number of different categories based upon the style of equipment used. Competitors shoot against people in their own target size and the targets get smaller as archers improve. Accompanying competitors from the south Okanagan (Osoyoos and Penticton) to the Kelowna shoot were Ron Ostermeier, president of the B.C. Archery Association, and his wife Mary, JOP sport co-ordinator for the province. Besides his placing with a first in the B.C.’s, Josiah Shonwise improved his rating to the 275 level from 250 out of a possible 300. Shonwise, who started shooting on Tuesday nights 18 months ago, also has a national laurel. He took first place in Canada-wide regionals in the male compound bow category. Land said the young archer has a couple more levels to go, then can move into the senior categories, people 18 and over. Ten shooters from the Kelowna JOP, by the way, placed no lower than in the top-five in Canada, at a national regional competition earlier in April.

NINE athletes from Kelowna’s Junior Olympic Archery

Program garnered three firsts, three seconds and a third, fourth and fifth in B.C. competition—Levi Kelbert (back left), Ethan Shonwise, Josiah Shonwise, Dustin Wallace, (front) Dana Westrate, Melanie Gibbs and Adian Whynott. Miranda and Taylor Hutton (not in photo) both scored seconds in the B.C. competition Kelowna’s Levi Kelbert, another B.C. firstplace winner, shoots a recurve bow, the kind used in the Olympics. With his eyes firmly fixed on the possibility of training an Olympic competitor from Kelowna, Land says, “We’ll be encouraging him to go to higher levels.” If you are interested in

Get swept up in a Toronto summer Ellen Creager CONTRIBUTOR

TORONTO—Streetcars, sharks, pandas and parasols. This summer, Canada’s largest city will be vibrantly alive. Just watch out for construction. The biggest news here is the planned opening this summer of Ripley’s Aquarium, a $130-million project that is Toronto’s first big new tourist attraction in two decades. It will be home to 15,000 fish and other creatures. It also promises a moving walkway that passes through a tunnel below a 750,000-gallon shark lagoon. On a windy April day, I walked to the aquarium in the shadow of the CN Tower to find dozens of workmen toiling on the

unfinished glass building. “When will it be done?” I inquired. “Never,” said a grinning, hard-hatted workman. “The outside windows won’t keep out the rain, and the inside windows won’t keep in the fish.” Ah, a little aquatic joke! The aquarium is supposed to start stocking fish tanks in June and open this summer, according to Ripley’s spokeswoman Erin Burcham. But fish are not the only tourism story here. In furry mammal news, the Toronto Zoo has just welcomed two giant pandas from China, which arrived by Federal Express in March. With an exhibit opening May 18, the zoo will showcase Er Shun and Da Mao for at least five years. The third thing tourists

A

should know about Toronto this summer is that there will be a lot of construction in this booming city. Spindly cranes

erally run east and west to supplement the subway, which primarily goes north and south. And the same $3 token works for both. Just elbow your way on. When you want to get off, pull the yellow cord. This summer also will be lively at two of Toronto’s most endearing spots, St. Lawrence Market and Kensington Market, two places that tourists often mix up. St. Lawrence Market is literally a market. One giant hall has dozens of vendors and farmers selling fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, pastries—everything from halibut heads to tulips. There is a Saturday farmers market, a Sunday antiques market and more activities that spill out onto the streets. The market is on Front Street at Jarvis, a few blocks east of Union Station.

Kensington Market is a groovy neighborhood near Chinatown northwest of Spadina and Dundas. (Both streets have streetcars, so take a chance and ride one to the market.) During the summer, some days the area becomes a pedestrian-only zone. One of the coolest little corners is where Kensington meets Baldwin, home of the Good Luck Shop (“the name brings good luck to the customers,” says the manager of the shop that sells games, socks, clocks, wigs and assorted lowbudget merchandise.) Across the street is Global Cheese, from which the ripe smell of Stilton drifts into the street. On the blocks nearby are wares for sale, including frilly petticoats, macrame hammocks, artisan bread, curried goat, choc-

olate truffles and buckets of parasols; in other words, all the necessities of life in modern Toronto.

IF YOU GO:

Getting around: Use public transit, unless you are physically challenged (subways have a lot of stairs and walking). Lodging: Toronto is the biggest city in Canada, with major metropolitan city prices to match. Lodging is generally $180 to $350 a night. Make sure any hotel-rate quote includes taxes and fees. Dining: Toronto’s varied dining scene means you can try high-end restaurants every night or choose tiny ethnic restaurants (my preference). Lots of Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, holein-the wall spots save your See Toronto A37

Many tourists are familiar with Toronto from its earnest days as a “Phantom of the Opera” onenote destination. Today, the multicultural city welcomes 2 million visitors a year from the U.S.—and this ever-growing city of 2.7 million people spreads out like a colorful quilt. Most American visitors get the hang of riding the Toronto TTC subway with its U-shaped route. Many still shy away from the bright red streetcars, which require one to run into the street and jump onto a car packed elbow to elbow. That is too bad, because the streetcars gen-

ces 164 hp and 156 lb/ ft of torque. Fuel numbers for the 2.0-litre manual are 9.4/6.2L/100 km city/highway and 9.2/6.3L/100 km for the automatic. That compares to 10.6/7.5 for the 2.4-litre automatic and 11.5/7.7L/100 km for the 2.7-litre auto. It is a speedy little motor. During the press introduction in Galveston, Texas, my co-driver got up to 160 km/h on a deserted stretch of road. The Rondo would have kept climbing but discretion forbade finding out “what’ll it do.” We noted a lot of tire rumble. But, considering we had a seven-seat version with the cavernous interior, it was like sitting inside of a drum, which amplified the noise. Speaking of the interior, standard equipment includes air conditioning, second row ventilation, power windows, heated front seats, a six speaker audio system and keyless entry with power locks. Here is a partial list of the optional features that include: heated steering wheel, heated second row seating, ventilated driver seat, automatic dual-zone climate control, 10-way power driver’s seat with an extendable cushion optimizing thigh support, SuperVision instrument cluster, premium sound system paired with an allnew multimedia interface featuring navigation and family-friendly manual integrated side window blinds. The Rondo interior will come equipped with black cloth with optional availability of black or black and beige two-tone high-grade leather. In the safety department, the Rondo leaves

brakes with brake assist system (BAS) and elec-t tronic brake distribution. s Also standard is Kia’sm advanced Vehicle Stabil-h ity Management Systemt (VSM). What it does isl step in during under and over steer conditions asc well as in split-tractiont p braking situations. Optionally availablet are rear parking sensorsfl and rear-view camera on equipped models that provide extended safety when reversing. The Rondo follows the recently introduced Forte and Sorento by integrating FlexSteer in the electric power steering giving the driver the choice of choosing three steering modes - comfort, normal and sport. Each can can be selected on the fly using a toggle switch on the right steering wheel spoke. During our drive, I played around with it but eventually just left it in normal. I can see comfort being used on long cruises and sport speaks for itself. While the Americans aren’t interested (yet) in K the compact people move ers, this is an emerging w segment in Canada. In terms of competitors, the Mazda5 is about the same size as the Rondo with the same wheelbase, but is not as tall. I own a 2006 Mazda5 and I find having that extra room really pays off when you need it for events such as helping a kid move home from college and when there are six of you going out to an event.

MOTORING Kia from B2

Ergo, I spent a lot of time in the back seat during the press event held in Galveston. Knee room in the Rondo is greater than the Mazda5, but I have mixed feelings about the second row windows winding all the way down. That’s behcause kids and dogs tend -to ride back there and the -second room window ,opening is generous incdeed. t But I did like the optional retractable sunshade on the EX Luxury smodel I drove. I would -have loved to have had mthat when my kids were little. d Like my Mazda5, you scan squeeze two into the third row but it really is a pinch. Most of the time ethe third row stays folded sflat and I expect the same

will be true of the Rondo. Cargo volume is 232 litres behind the rear seat and 1,840 litres with second and third row seats flat. There are 15 storage/ cubbies and eight beverage holders on the inside. Along with utility, pricing is key when it comes to Rondo and it starts at $21,695 for the base LX with manual transmission. You’d think a manual is probably superfluous with a bulk of owners asking for the automatic and you’d be right. Kia admits they only expect two per cent of buyers to order one but it does make for a very attractive starting price. At the other end is the EX Luxury with too many extras to list at $32,195. Kia expects only five per cent of sales with this model, but there are those who want all the bells and

whistles as we are seeing in the exploding luxury compact sedan segment. Fully 32 per cent and 26 per cent of expected sales will be the LX fiveseat and seven-seat LX, $23,995 and $25,195 respectively. These sit just above the base LX in the price walk. Next up the ladder is the EX five-seater and EX seven-seater at $26,995 and $28,195 topping out with the aforementioned EX Luxury which is also a seven seater. Kia currently has the youngest fleet in the car business with nine new or refreshed vehicles coming in 2013 alone. Between this year and 2017, Kia has 47 new or refreshed vehicles planned. If ever a car company was on a roll, Kia is it.

Honda Civic makes all the right changes Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

I recently drove the 2013 Honda Civic coupe and sedan back-to-back, and would sum it up simply as two pleasant weeks of drama-free driving. Which is what buying this kind of car is all about. Unlike the pocket-rocket Civic Si, which sells in much smaller numbers, the regular Civic—whether two or four door—continues to deliver what had made it Canada’s top-selling passenger car for 15 straight years. Which is well-engineered family transport that, while not cheap, continues to please buyers for years after showroom shine has faded. “You can pay me no or pay me later,” has pretty much defined the Honda lineup. But the Civic nameplate took a hit last year as the ninth-generation car failed to impress with its inexpensive-looking in-

terior, dowdy sedan styling and driving dynamics that exhibited none of Honda’s legendary racing DNA. I still remember the collective ennui from fellow journalists at its Toronto debut. Followed later by the very lukewarm Consumer Reports rating of the 2012 model. Despite all the gripping, it wasn’t a bad car; it was just that competitors like Elantra and Forte had surpassed Civic in several key areas. So rather than grit it out for an entire product cycle, Honda listened to dealers, the automotive press and its fan base, and then made the necessary fixes. Let’s start with the exterior. The coupe didn’t need this makeover, so was left alone, but the sedan was significantly revised, beginning at the front with a wider, blacker lower grille and optional integrated foglights. A horizontal chrome strip is mirrored

above in the larger, honeycomb upper grille—all flowing into a taller, more deeply faceted hood. The overall effect of this more aggressive, less busy front end is of a lower, wider car—although those dimensions remain the same. In back is a revised rear bumper and trunk lid, and thankfully, new taillights to replace the stodgy lenses from last year. These are connected by a chrome trim piece that nicely finishes the trunk. The lower diffuser with honeycomb mesh adds a sporting touch. One of my biggest gripes with last year’s model—in both sedan and coupe—was its plasticky interior. There’s still no shortage of it in the new model, but more of the soft touch variety, and this includes a nicer mix of textures. Along with judicious use of metallic accents, the Civic passenger cabin looks more upscale. To Honda’s credit, they kept the centre con-

Penny-pinching systems rob power from engine configuration

7Civics but the Si—and ECO Assist will significantly numb your throttle response. The available five-speed automatic will also shift earlier, so acceleration is leisurely at best. I’ll admit that this system is great for pinching pennies, but it saps the life from an already modest powertrain. And it can put you at risk when you need some punch while in the cut and thrust of city traffic. Unchanged for 2013 is Honda’s fuel-efficient i-VTEC 1.8-litre 16-valve four-cylinder engine that delivers 140 hp and 128 lb/ft of torque. In DX, LX and EX trim, it is mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox, with optional five-speed auto for the LX and EX. My tester included the automatic, and although fuel efficient—even without enabling ECON—I found its performance little more than adequate. Mind you, it’s right in line with most of its key competition. What has come up a notch is the car’s handling. The electronic power steering has been retuned for a quicker ratio, and the suspension gets stiffer front and rear springs and thicker stabilizer bars for flatter cornering and better composure. Hence the ride is less mushy, but still forgiving enough, as the Civic soaks up road imperfections as well as before. Honda has made further improvements in the 2013 model, such as a stiffer front subframe, thicker windows and additional soundproofing, all resulting in a quieter cabin. Bottom line: they’ve turned a challenge into an opportunity, and kudos to

Honda for not trying to spin the situation. There’s a reason that Civic continues to outsell its competition (although Elantra has just crept ahead), and that has been the automaker’s legendary build quality and reliability. But today’s compact buyers expect even more, and in the 2013 Civic, Honda is once again offering a little sizzle to go with the steak.

New face on Chevy’s full-size crossover Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

“Whoa, man, that’s big.” It wasn’t the first time I was hearing the comment. And it wouldn’t be the last. That’s because the 2013 Traverse is Chevy’s largest crossover utility vehicle (CUV), almost rivaling the truck-based Suburban SUV when it comes to full-size interior space and dimensions. The Traverse first debuted as a 2009 model, replacing the Trailblazer and sharing its new Lambda platform, doors

and running gear with the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Built to bridge the gap between minivans and SUVs, the Traverse first debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in 2008. Frankly, it didn’t create much of a stir at the time because, let’s face it, this “new gathering place for families” doesn’t quite carry the cachet, the tag line or the sex appeal of Chevy lineup all-stars like the Corvette or Camaro.

plete with a little more design flair, new exterior sculpting and lighting jewelry tweaks, and better ride and handling along with improved interior accommodations and updated technologies inside. The Traverse benefits from a long wheelbase and an independent suspension that has been improved for 2013 with new rebound springs in the front struts for roll control and new shock valves for a smoother ride. It eats up highway miles with a smooth and stately grace. The Traverse comes with one engine—a standard 3.6-litre V6 that makes near-V8 power thanks to direct injection technology and continuously variable valve timing. It is rated at 281 hp at 6300 rpm and 266 lb/ft or torque available over a broad rev range from 2500—6,000 rpm, more than enough moxie to move even this behemoth (2216 kg curb weight) up to speed. Chevrolet does offer one incremental engine tweak—a top trim dual exhaust system that ups the power to 288 hp (up 7 hp) and 270 lb/ft (up 4 lb/ ft). The 3.6-litre V6 engine is mated to the second-gen Hydra-Matic 6T75 six-speed automatic transmission that has been geared for fuel economy but upgraded for 2013 with a quicker, more consistent shift pattern. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard but an all-wheel drive (AWD) system ($3,000), as tested here, actively manages torque distribution between the front and rear axles, and is available in all trim levels. Fuel economy for this AWD tester has been rated by Transport Canada at 13/8.6L/100km (city/highway). As usual, American EPA testing rates the Traverse less optimistically at 14.7/10.2L/100km (city/ highway), more realistic numbers, but not as realistic as my particular mix of city and highway driving - 13.9L/100km (combined).

MOTORING climate controls. With new articulating head restraints that can be adjusted up or down and fore and aft, new levels of fit and finish, and an all-new and industry-exclusive added side impact air bag between the front seats, the list of improvements goes on and on. And all this is wrapped in a new exterior design featuring a wider, split grille - the new corporate face of Chevrolet sedans and crossovers. A new powerdome hood also adds a little machismo to the mix. New, sleek headlamps, chrome accents around the grille and fog lamps complement revised, sculpted corners that hint at Malibu design. And, in back, the license plate pocket moves off the bumper and up into a recess in the new, sportier liftgate. If you squint your eyes a little, you might even find a hint of Camaro influence in the darker-tinted taillamps. With these recent revisions and changes, inside and out, the 2013

Chevy Traverse should carry over with only minor yearly updates until an expected next generation vehicle for 2016. But in the here and now, it offers a viable alternative to competitors like the Ford Explorer and Mazda CX9. And, although tested here in fairly posh 2LT AWD trim at $43,125, in typical Chevrolet price positioning the Traverse offers consumers a more affordable entry point into the full-size CUV lineup (starting at $32,995) compared to its more upscale GM siblings, the GMC Acadia (starting at $36,210) and Buick Enclave (starting at $41,525).

BLACKWOOD, ALAN GEORGE Alan George Blackwood of Kelowna, passed away on May 4, 2013 at the age of 84 years. He is survived by his loving wife Gladys (nee Oldhaver); daughters and sons: Lynette Patenaude, Richard (Jocelyne), Patrick (Donna), Heather (Ken) Lawrence; grandchildren: Rena Johnson, Amber (Jason) Stratton, Jolene (Dan) Fremlin, Danielle (Brett) VanderHoek, Tyler, Garrett, Evan; great grandchildren: Natasha, Lukas, Drew, Bayley, Yukon; sister Mildred (Lloyd) Flintoft and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his sisters and brothers: Eva (Jack) Fisher, Margaret (Bill) Stokes, Edna (Ralph) Daniels, Charlie (Doreen), Ethel (Don) Stratton, Lillah (Ken) Parks and Roy (Catherine). Alan was the ninth child of William and Amelia Ann (nee McCurdy) Blackwood. He was born in Kelowna September 8, 1928 and married Gladys in 1951. Alan started with CN working tugs on Okanagan Lake in 1947 and the Athabasca River in Alberta.

Fishing, hunting and traveling were interests that kept him entertained for his whole life, with the best times being shared with his wife Gladys, his children and grandchildren.

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Eugenie (Jean) Skutshek, on Saturday May 4, 2013, at Hospice House in Kelowna, BC, 32 days short of her 82nd birthday and 19 days short of her 60th wedding anniversary. She was surrounded by her husband, sister and three children as she passed quietly from this life to the next. Her body succumbed to ovarian cancer, which she battled valiantly for more than three years. Left to mourn her loss and treasure her memories are husband Paul, son Edward (Denise), daughter Desiree, son Paul (Gordon), grandsons Jonathan and Noah,  sister Vera Lueck and numerous nieces and nephews. Jean is predeceased by her mother Alma and father Edward Politz, and her brother Leo Politz. Jean was born in the village of Horstschick, in the Ukraine, June 5th, 1931. The winds of World War II blew her from the Ukraine to Germany. She underwent many trials and tribulations during the war years, often narrowly escaping death at the hand of a bullet, bomb or starvation. She spent much of the war years separated from her parents. Her father Edward did not survive the war. She emigrated to Canada in 1951 and settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She earned her living as a maid and then a seamstress. On May 23, 1953, she married Paul Skutshek, whose family had lived in the same village in the Ukraine and who had immigrated to Winnipeg at the same time.   During their years in Winnipeg, Paul and Jean worked tirelessly to realize the Canadian dream of home ownership, advancement in life and the establishment of family (their three children were born from 1956-62). In 1968, they moved to Kelowna. Paul and Jean established a successful construction and development business under the name “Paul Construction”. Husband Paul drew plans and built homes and commercial buildings, while Jean kept the business’ books and kept the home fires burning. Paul and Eugenie retired in 1988. From 1968 to 2001, the two were active members of Christ Lutheran Church. Jean sang in the church choir for many years. She was active in Christ Lutheran’s women’s group and was instrumental in planning and convening numerous events at Christ Lutheran over those years. In 2001, Jean and Paul joined Grace Lutheran Church on the Westside, as their eldest son Edward had accepted a call to be pastor of the congregation. Paul and Jean remained active in church life at Grace Lutheran. They spent countless hours in worship, Bible study and fellowship. Eugenie remained active in Grace Lutheran’s women’s group and was involved in planning and convening church events as long as her health would allow. The Skutshek family would like to express sincere gratitude to the staff of Kelowna Hospice House for the loving and tender care given to our beloved “Jeanie.” We would also like to express sincere thanks and gratitude to the volunteers and staff of  the Kelowna Cancer Center for the care given to Jean, most notably, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Docherty.  We cannot thank her family physician Dr. Michael Bobyn enough for the care he has given our beloved Jeanie, most especially during her last days.    Friends wishing to pay their last respects and offer condolences to the family are invited to a viewing at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road in Kelowna, on Monday May 13 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. A service celebrating a life well lived and a woman well loved will be held on Wednesday May 15 at 11:00 AM at Grace Lutheran Church, 1162 Hudson Road, West Kelowna, BC (250) 769-5685. We will remember and celebrate who she was and whose she is.  Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

Everdina “Dini” Braam passed away suddenly in her own home at the Wedgewood in Kelowna, British Columbia on Friday, May 3, 2013 at the age of 83 years. She was born on August 4, 1929 in Silvolde, the Netherlands Holland. Immigrating to Canada in 1954, she initially settled in Ottawa and then moved to Kelowna in 1958, where she married Wilhelmus (“Bill”) Braam. Survived by her three sons and their families: Mark & Maureen, Nicole and Michael of Vancouver; Ron & Ela and Logan of Burnaby; Francis & Marlene, Spencer, Ethan and Ryan of Kelowna. Also lovingly remembered by her surviving brothers and sisters and their families, Theo Heyming (Nellie) of Toronto, Karen Dewit (Joe) of Carstairs, Alberta, Peter Heyming (Ann) of Kelowna, Leny Gaffney (Jim) of Ireland, and sister-in-law, Connie Heyming of California. Sadly predeceased by her parents, grandson Christopher, brother Henry (“Hank”) Heyming and sister Bets Nuyens. What was most important to Dini and gave her the most pleasure were her children and their spouses, grandchildren and siblings.

Housing sales reflect optimism

The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board reported April 2013 sales activity of all MLS property types improved over the same month last year as the housing market showed signs of strengthening moving into spring. “Following fairly flat first quarter results province-wide, during April the Okanagan-Shuswap market saw a bounce-up in sales and consumer demand compared to this time last year,” said Karen Singbeil, a Shuswap realtor and president of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board. “Although 2013 had a sluggish start, sales in our board area have seen steady improvement monthover-month, and are currently up year-over-year. “We hope this positive trend continues going forward as buyers and sellers take advantage of the spring market activity.” Due to the divergence in OMREB’s three market areas, sales activity tends to vary among property types zone by zone, Singbeil noted. “While the Central Okanagan and Shuswap experienced an uptick in April, the North Okanagan remained relatively flat and saw minimal gains.” Region-wide (Peachland to Revelstoke) showed a 28% improvement over March (485 units), while overall sales in OMREB’s board area during April improved by 15.6% compared to 2012 —to 621 units from 537. 

However, board-wide sales year-to-date dipped 2.4% compared to the first four months last year (to 1,765 from 1,809). Total residential sales for the month rose 13.4% to 560 units compared to 494 in April 2012. The sale of single-family residential homes was up 12.8% compared to last year at this time (to 327 units from 290).  While the 1,855 new listings taken board-wide for the month dropped 1.4% from 1,881 last year, inventory in April was down 4.8% to 8,498 from 8,926 in 2012.

CENTRAL ZONE (PEACHLAND TO LAKE COUNTRY)

During April, overall sales in the Central Zone were up 19.1% to 406 units from 341 in 2012. Year-todate, unit sales remained the same as for January through April last year at 1,190 units. Total residential sales for the month improved 15.6% to 371 units compared to 321 last year. Single family home sales in April jumped 20.7% from 2012 (to 216 units from 179). The 1,062 new listings taken during the month remained similar to 2012 (1,060), with inventory for the month down 8.5% to 4,524 units from 4,943 last April.

NORTH ZONE (PREDATOR RIDGE TO ENDERBY): Overall sales for April in the

North Zone showed a nominal improvement over last year—up 2.9% to 140 units from 136 in 2012. Year-to-date, sales were down 10.9% compared to the first four months of 2012 (to 377 from 423).   Total residential sales for the month rose 5.7% over last year to 130 units versus 123 in April 2012.  Single family home sales were down 13.3% to 72 units compared to 83 last year at this time.  While inventory for April dipped 1.6% to 2,329 from 2,366 in 2012, the 478 new listings taken for the month remained at the 2012 level (477).

SHUSWAP ZONE (SALMON ARM TO REVELSTOKE)

During April, overall unit sales in the Shuswap-Revelstoke Zone improved 25% at 75 units compared to 60 in 2012. Year-to-date, sales were at the same level as January through April 2012 (195 units). Total residential sales for the month were up 18.0% to 59 units from 50 last year.  Single family unit sales for the month improved 39.3% with 39 units compared to 28 in April 2012.  While new listings taken in the Zone dropped 8.2% over last April (to 315 from 343), inventory rose 1.6% to 1,638 from 1,612 during the same month in 2012. “Now is a good time to buy— especially while interest rates remain at historic lows,” Singbeil added.

▼ OF PRIME INTEREST

Insuring your mortgage This week we will go over the importance of purchasing life and disability insurance for your mortgage and the options available to you. Many homeowners are reluctant when it comes to purchasing life and disability insurance—they don’t want to add the cost of insurance to their mortgage payment. But one of the biggest mistakes you can make is to sign off on a mortgage and not be thinking about insurance coverage. It’s not surprising that homeowners balk at mortgage insurance because most of us feel we are already stretching our monthly payments to the maximum. But think of it as coverage you can’t afford to be without it. Your family could be left holding a debt on what tends to be a person’s largest individual debt obligation. It is especially important for first-time or young buyers to get coverage because the mortgage balance is usually high and the premiums in most cases tend to be much lower because of their age. While all lenders offer mortgage life insurance, we find seeking insurance through an independent broker to cover your mortgage is usually a better option. For one, this affords you the opportunity of switching lenders later on. As an example, five years down the road your mortgage becomes available for renewal and another lender is offering you a better rate. You can switch the mortgage and not have to requalify for your life insurance.

This reduces the risk of facing higher premiums because as we age the premiums increase with new policies. Worse yet, you may find out at the time that you are uninsurable. Independent coverage will also be for the full amount of the mortgage, and not based on your declining mortgage balance. You also have the option of reducing your premiums when the mortgage balance decreases, however, when you are tied to a lender the insurance coverage is for the mortgage balance only and the premiums will remain the same regardless of the balance. If something were to happen to both you and your spouse with an independent the insurance would pay double, not just your mortgage balance as is the case when insuring with the lender. Disability insurance is also available as a typical disability policy will only pay 60 to 70 per cent of your monthly income, so there is still a gap. Coverage will be only for your mortgage payment with a lender, but with an independent you have the option of insuring for a higher monthly amount so you will also be covered for other monthly expenses such as property taxes and basic living expenses. Mortgage insurance is a must but carefully consider your options. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Darwyn Sloat, 250-718-4117; Trish Balaberde, 250470-8324; and Kristin Rosdal, 250-8783007.

Some positive signs to build on for real estate market activity

T

he Okanagan, like much of Canada, felt a coast to coast cool down in real estate sales in the first quarter of 2013. Many factors came into play for the scarce number of buyers out there shopping over the past few months— tight lending rules, PST transition, high prices coupled with low inventory and the fearful housing bubble bursting again. While the Okanagan has experienced a ‘false start’ to the real estate market this year, that situation has finally subsided. April sales statistics revealed a

steady climb in numbers (see story above). Residential sales last month climbed a substantial 20.67 per cent with 216 sales compared to 179 for the same period last year. Condominium sales did not have such a sizable increase in sales, but rather a slight decrease with 60 units sold, down from 63 units reflecting a drop of 4.76 per cent over last year. Overall,the Central Okanagan

market experienced a jump of almost 20 per cent from 2012. Sale prices for single family homes for the month of April fell 4.51 per cent Ceinwen from $482,093 to Morgan $460,351. Condominiums sales prices experienced a slight drop from $220,235 to $217,504, a 1.24 per cent decrease. The Central Okanagan’s average sale price for single-family homes, condos and townhouses was down

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

7.15 per cent from April 2012. However, with mortgage rates remaining steady at 2.84 per cent on a five year term, we can except to continue to see some activity increase in the second quarter. For a $100,000 mortgage on a five year term and 25 year amortization rate, your payment would be only $465.07. This is a tempting number for home buyers, so perhaps its time to jump off that fence and make that plunge into the real estate pool. “If there’s ever been a time to be cautious with giving out mortgage

debt, now would be that time,” said Ben Rabidoux, analyst and strategist with U.S.-based Hanson Advisors. “What they are doing at CMHC is finally forcing it to act in the best interest of the general public.” With sale prices down and tighter lending rules, buyers can join the wonderful world of homeownership without the fear of taking on too much debt too quickly. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
