Naked zipline event targets world record Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

An initiative started three years ago by ZipZone Peachland and the women of SS Rodeo roller derby team will likely result in a Guinness World Record next month. The annual ZipZone naked ziplining event, which has made international headlines, takes place June 20. Last year 84 women— ranging from age 18 to 73—shed their clothes; the fundraiser brought in $16,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Kevin Bennett, president of ZipZone Peachland said this year the goal is to host 150 participating

women. “There isn’t currently a Guinness Record (for naked ziplining), we’re going to be setting it,” said Bennett. Doubling the number of participants is “totally realistic,” according to Bennett, who added the community is learning the naked ziplining fundraiser is a fun and respectful event. “People are becoming aware that it’s not a peep show,” said Bennett. “We go out of our way to make it a really safe, comfortable environment for women.” Female participants are asked to raise a minimum of $250 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation this year in order to participate.

The overall fundraising goal is $30,000. Women who aren’t comfortable baring it all are still invited to participate, said Bennett. In previous years, women have worn bikinis, pasties or even strategically placed feathers. ZipZone asks that body paint not be worn because it can rub onto the harnesses. “The nudity is optional; you zip however you feel comfortable,” said Bennett. “But, to count for the world record, you have to zip naked or topless.” Lawyer Nancy Fish of Porrelli Law will be on hand to do an official count for the Guinness World Record attempt application.

The naked ziplining initiative is only open to females and, according to Bennett, that likely won’t change any time soon. When asked whether or not consideration has been given for an annual men’s event, Bennett said: “There is no way I could get 100 guys to go naked.” ZipZone Peachland will be closed to the public while the event is in progress and the only men on site will be Bennett, operations manager Josh Sears and members of the media. All staff who require contact with the zipliners will be female. To book a spot in the event or for more information, visit


Too much drinking in back country Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

For Sgt. Josh Lockwood of the B.C Conservation Officer Service, the most disturbing part of a busy long weekend enforcing the law in the back country was the amount of illegal alcohol consumption. He and other COs found people drinking while operating boats, motorcycles and ATVs, and it wasn’t that they were underage, they were mostly in their 20s and 30s, he said. In fact, he said there were a couple of parties of high school-aged teens—70 at one site— who acted in a very responsible manner, were respectful of the environment, and left the site as clean as they’d found it. But, in other areas, officers gave out two 24-hour suspensions to people driving ATVs

while impaired and there were a couple of ATV accidents as well. It’s as if people feel the normal rules don’t apply once they’re off the blacktop, he commented. Tickets were issued for driving without insurance, driving a motorcycle without a helmet on and two ATVs were seized and impounded for 30 days. The worst was at Sugar Lake where a conservation officer checked 30 people and issued 29 tickets, from angling without a licence to not having any life jackets in the boat, and one angler had nothing but a lawn chair in the boat. He had no life jackets, bailer, flashlight, tow rope, throw line, paddle or anything else required by regulations to be aboard all boats. He was issued with $500 in tickets, making it an expensive weekend. Ironically, May 18

was the start of Boating Safety Week as well, he added. Officers also enforced the rules in the Bear Creek Recreation Site, where Lockwood said there were a lot of people who were sneaking onto the new trails without purchasing a trail pass, so they were ticketed for operating in the area without a permit. Not all the back country users were ignoring the rules, however. He said officers Saturday checked 30 people and only laid two charges in the Bear Creek area, while Sunday on the Aberdeen Plateau, only four charges and three warnings were passed out, of 38 people checked. During boat checks on Okanagan Lake, officers issued more than 25 tickets for such offences as fishing without a licence, having more than their quota of fish, not

having an operator competency card for operating a boat, not having life jackets on board, not having a bailer and throw line, flashlight, or paddle on board or fishing with barbed hooks, reports Sergeant Jim Beck of the CO service. As well, he said conservation officers issued tickets for having open liquor, for possession of narcotics, driving without due care and attention, failing to stop, driving while impaired, driving without a driver’s licence and driving without insurance on tours of Forest Service Recreation Sites in the southern half of the valley. Natural resource officer Randal Kohlhauser said they conducted patrols from Kelowna south to Princeton one day, and on the east side of Oka See Drinking A6

Stabbing suspect in court Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A 37-year-old man is charged with aggravated assault and possessing a controlled substance after allegedly stabbing a younger man early Saturday morning in downtown Kelonwa. Richard Irving Duncan made his first appearance in court Tuesday. The incident occurred outside Tonic’s Pub at the

corner of Pandosy Street and Lawrence Avenue after an altercation between the 20-year-old victim and a group of four others allegedly resulted in the young man being stabbed in the arm. Police said a verbal altercation between Duncan and the victim escalated on the street and the younger man was stabbed twice in the arm. A description of the suspect was provided to

police as they arrived on scene and Duncan was taken into custody having already caught the attention of officers. “He was actually seen by the (RCMP) member on his way to the incident,” said Kelowna RCMP spokesman Kris Clark, noting Duncan was seen fleeing the scene on foot. Police recovered a weapon from the rooftop of a nearby business.

Most local growers escape frost and hail damage Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Spring’s unpredictable weather hasn’t done any favours for some orchardists in the Okanagan, but more have escaped frost and hail damage so far in the northern half of the valley than in the south. “It’s a difficult way to start the new season,” admits Hank Markgraf, who heads up field services for the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, but who also grows some tree fruits in Kelowna himself. The coming year’s crop, because of the damage, is likely to be smaller than last year’s, he forecasts, but he expects soft fruits will be larger fruit at this year’s harvest. Growers in neighbour-

ing Washington State, where about 30 times the quantity of apples are grown over the amount grown in B.C., have also suffered losses due to a frost earlier this spring. The damage is going to affect quantities of both cherries and apples, the two largest orchard crops in the valley, as well as fruits such as peaches, nectarines and pears. In Eastern North America, growers have a huge crop, following devastating losses in a late spring freeze last year, noted Markgraf. Because of those losses, last fall’s harvest of apples in both B.C. and Washington State received better prices than in a number of years, so at least local growers are

starting off this year with an income from last year’s crop. There were concerns that Tuesday’s thunderstorms would bring hail which could cause more damage to the coming year’s crop, but Russell Brown from the production branch of the provincial agriculture ministry reported the only hail damage reported so far this year was a small amount from the Vernon area. Frost damage has been reported from soft fruit growers in the Oliver and Osoyoos area, as well as in cherries and Creston and Kelowna. All the frost damage has been in pockets and it hasn’t been widespread, he said.

People partying Bear shot in in the woods are downtown area now a concern Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Drinking from A3 nagan Lake the other day of the long weekend, including in the McCulloch Lake area. There they ticketed people who had left a campfire unattended, which results in a $345 fine and another for damaging a natural resource feature in a rec site, for a $115 fine. Motorcycles operating without insurance on a forest service road were also ticketed, which cost their riders $345. He said there was a high volume of off-road vehicle use in the McCulloch Lake area, and there were issues with speed and helmet use. Some of those staying at the sites said noise late at night was an issue, but the sites were packed with campers, he noted.

Lockwood said there are also a number of investigations underway into mud bogging incidents over the weekend. Officers will continue to spend some time enforcing the rules in the Bear Creek Recreation Site area, he warned. That’s just fine with John Glaspie, recreation officer for the Okanagan Region. He said the Bear Creek site was particularly busy over the long weekend with lots of families staying at the campsites and using the training trails for youngsters. Funds from the trail passes goes right back into maintenance of trails in the area, so users are more willing to pay the fee and enjoy the well-maintained trails, he said.

A black bear which surprised a homeowner in his backyard by approaching him from behind, was shot by conservation officers at a busy intersection in broad daylight in Peachland Friday. Conservation officer Jim Beck said the bear was scrounging in garbage bins and refused to be scared off by residents for some time, becoming more and more bold. “He’d lost his fear and respect for people,” said

Beck. Bears that are no longer nocturnal and are out during the day, and who are not wary of people, can be dangerous and unpredictable. When the bear was shot, it wasn’t far from a school, at a time when kids would be heading home, said Beck. The bear was shot at the corner of Highway 97 and Princeton Avenue, near downtown Peachland. People are advised to keep their garbage inside so it doesn’t attract bears.

Maybe Duffy has serviced us well


he pace of government action (or in this case, inaction) is something Canadians will never fully grasp. In the blink of an eye, the Conservative government can strip away the retirement dreams of millions of Canadians. But when a loyal soldier of the government stands accused of bilking taxpayers with improper expenses, the prime minister claims to be powerless, while money is quietly funneled out of his office to repay the alleged wrongdoing.

But, this time, Canadians may finally have had enough. The cloud of scandal continues to grow over the head of embattled Senator Mike Duffy. The former TV journalist is accused of fudging his expense account, eventually repaying the improperly claimed expenses with $90,000 he received from Nigel Wright, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff—since resigned. Duffy has now quit the Conservative caucus in the Senate, but he is so far rejecting calls to resign as a senator. And the

Prime Minister seems unwilling to push him out the door. Harper said he was “not happy” and “very upset” with the conduct of some parliamentarians and his own office, before hopping on a plane for a South American trade mission without answering questions from reporters. The same Prime Minister who has shown the powers of a majority government are almost limitless is now unable to even mention the name of his disgraced colleague.

Canada’s 105 senators all make a basic salary of $135,200. And apart from apparently filing bogus expense claims, most Canadians would be hard pressed to name a single duty that senators fulfill. Maybe Duffy has done a service to his country after all. Maybe the Senator’s actions will be the straw that broke the camel’s back and prompt Canadians to demand an end to the political embarrassment that is this nation’s Senate. —Penticton Western News

Let’s face the realilty–politics and voting is for us old fogeys


he post-election analysis of how we ended up with another Liberal government and an elected premier who failed to win her own Vancouver area riding has generated some interesting discussion and revelations. One of the more disheartening is the whole idea of encouraging people to vote, to participate in democracy, appears to be a growing fallacy. Politics is for the older adults, while for the younger voters, it’s best to let sleeping giants rest. But lets first consider the art of polling, something that I have been personally irritated about for many a year. The results can often change the flow of an election with little account

for how accurate they might be. It’s been revealed that the Liberals, using their own internal polling, could see the election turning their way in the final two weeks, while the NDP seemed to acquire a false sense of security by the inaccurate public polls being released. Why were they inaccurate? Because they didn’t actually represent those who would turn out to vote. The polling factor in B.C. was preceded by the last Alberta election, where the supposed party poll leader lost, and on a bigger campaign can-

vass in the last U.S presidential election, when Mitt Romney felt assured by the polling numbers that he would unseat incumbent Barack Obama. When the U.S. Barry election numbers Gerding started coming in, Obama’s campaign team did what the B.C. Liberals did, they made sure to get out their identified vote, with the hope the malaise of being a frontrunner would impact the opponent. In B.C., barely more than 50 per cent of the electorate bothered to cast a vote on May 14. The larger percent-


age of those who did, voted Liberal, while the public polling numbers the NDP took false comfort in didn’t represent those who actually turned out to vote. The conjecture leading up to the election was the Liberals would suffer, that many of their traditional supporters, worn out by the myriad of scandals, would simply not show up at the polls rather than vote for the NDP. But in the wacky politics of B.C., the exact opposite happened— the NDP supporters didn’t bother to vote, as one theory suggests, because they thought the election was in the bag. This brings me back to the young voters—for argument’s sake be-

Banning the homeless sweeps real people away To the editor: I am writing in response to a May 2 letter in the Capital News: Solution: Ban the Homeless, here in Kelowna. There is tremendous opportunity in Kelowna as a cultural city to change the frame of homelessness. Kelowna is a growing community aiming to hold its standards high, but the lack of compassion amidst citizens is a contagious one. Where does banning homeless people leave us? Sitting in a nearsighted, diluted sense of security, where there is no compassion for our fellow human beings? Or in an age of apathy unaware of its own shortcomings? Neither sounds too good to me. But before you find me grim, I must reiterate

Kelowna’s cultural heritage, rather cultural precedent as the main source of our uniqueness when approaching this issue. A place where snowboarders rock the hill every winter, good music cuts into the downtown district year round, artists exist in every medium, and come summer time everyone is saying gimme some more of that summer. Our citizens work hard and play even harder. Amidst this awesomeness I sense a divide, and I have got to confide. Recently, I started working in the cultural district of Kelowna. I have seen the best of everything artistic, from live music, beautiful Broadway style shows and flamenco dancers to knock your socks off. I have also been wit-

ness to the issues ignored by society. The people left behind, the homeless, the ones without warmth or security at night. The ones looked at without reason, only judgement, seen as multiplying since 1989 in Kelowna. That’s like saying TV ratings are up! Guess what, population grows, and with that so do our unresolved issues. I’m turning away from disparity and towards unity. We all bleed red and homeless people need compassion, not hatred, help, not fear, and a place to call home not a stop off station that will soon become known as Kelowna. Don’t forget, that some of the worst people in this wide world in which we reside do indeed have roofs over their heads, rendering any

judgement upon those on the streets as irrelevant. A judgement which does nothing, besides providing peace of mind for a select few who quite literally won’t be here in the next millennium. A large proportion of people on the streets suffer from mental illness, and are far more scared than they may let on. A more feasible solution to this issue is to create a community for the homeless, one of peace where rules and standards help them shape up rather than ship out. It is already beginning at the federal level and with a homelessness partnering strategy. Kelowna can keep its legacy of clean streets without the tarnishing element of banishment at the feet of those most in need. I am only 24 years old.

I have my walls up—I don’t let people in—but FREE surely there needs to be a IN HOME ESTIMATES voice of compassion for the homeless. Funding for developments can be garnered at the international level, and any good Samaritan mustn’t feel obliged to give someone the change in their pocket but rather, feel inclined to eradicate the negative stereotype and connotation of what it means to be homeless. Show your compassion and I bet you may find, as academic studies have defined, your own act of compassion will bolster your happiness as well as your own subjectof the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen ive well being. Help keep Kelowna awesome. Graeme Merriman, Kelowna


time “eminent” people who become untouchable crooks once installed in this worthless club that has no purpose has gone on too long. The saved money could go for veterans, Canadian poor, health or education, something worthwhile instead of just throwing it away. With a majority government, there is no need for these cronies who blatantly steal our tax dollars without reprisal. Is Harper that much of

a coward that he needs the extra insurance of stacked support just in case? We have the NDP and Bloc, along with Ontario, B.C., Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and Manitoba wanting to abolish this useless club, along with the majority of Canadians, so maybe Stephen Harper should listen to his electorate and earn some brownie points for the next election and do the right thing and abolish the Senate now. Nigel Wright was

probably the only honest individual in this scandal (paying $90,000 of Senator Mike Duffy’s expenses) and he has to take the fall. I sure hope Revenue Canada taxes Duffy’s $90,000 bailout like any other Canadian would have to pay for a gift this size. So far, suspicion is only directed at three or four senators, but, with a complete senate audit, a lot more expense account cheating and fraud would

be exposed and I think it is about time to get the RCMP involved and appropriate charges be laid. Anyone in the public sector who stole from their employer like this would surely face criminal charges, retribution and dismissal from their job. These are my thoughts, Ron, and you being our MP I hope something is done and the sooner the better. Ron Roy, Kelowna

Youth aren’t interested in same old politics Gerding from A8 U.S., where the government has ground to a halt—outside of fighting wars, for what looks like 16 years, eight under George W. Bush and eventually eight under Obama. That is an entire generation that will grow up to adulthood and find themselves confronted with a myriad of issues their elders have dumped on them for the sake of ignorance and political convenience. Think about the environment, state of health care, pensions that taxpayers can’t afford (next time you hear of someone retiring at 55 with a sweet pension, ask yourself who will be paying for that over the next 20 to 30



years), crumbling infrastructure, multinational corporations not paying their fair share of taxes and real estate values controlled by off-shore investors. More than ever, young people need to get motivated to not let the old buzzards in power

Unfortunately, that election enthusiasm needs to be registered at all levels of government, as change comes from the bottom up, not the top down. If the NDP has any hopes of winning another majority government in B.C. or continuing their momentum on the national stage, they will need to tap into that source of votes among those under the age of 30. The political fate of the party and economic landscape those voters will inherit in the years ahead demand that their

apathy needs to be injected by shot of hope and excitement to encourage their voting voice to be heard at the ballot box.

Westbank centre to remain divided STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna is giving up its fight to convert the Westbank couplet— which chops the community’s downtown core into three sections—into a single highway along Dobbin Road. Despite being a priority since incorporation in 2007, council unanimously decided the initiative would be too costly for the district to take on itself. “I think everybody’s disappointed with the results of a really serious look at this issue,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. “We don’t have a sense of community, a sense of place down there in the downtown core— that’s what’s disappointing.” Michael Skene, president of Boulevard Transportation Group, was at Tuesday’s council meeting to discuss results from a study that looked into options regarding conversion of the couplet. Skene said the oneway couplet, which was constructed in the early 1980s, currently meets the needs of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure; therefore, the ministry is not eager to convert it to a single highway for beautification reasons. Although the district doesn’t have any jurisdiction over the Highway 97

corridor, it could still take on a couplet conversion using its own funds. But, with a price tag of approximately $40 million, council agreed that wasn’t a realistic option. “It’s really not affordable. We could do it, but we’d be sacrificing everything else,” said Findlater. Skene recommended the district discontinue leading the initiative to convert the couplet into a single, two-way road and focus its efforts on beautification of Main Street, Brown Road and Elliott Road. Based on the Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan, the cost of streetscaping, traffic calming and other beautification work is estimated to be $4.2 million; however, Skene said the district has control over that cost. “We have to devote our resources and our time to what is achievable and affordable,” said Findlater, adding the district might consider planting more trees along Main Street to “deaden some of the sound” caused by noisy vehicles travelling along the Highway 97 corridor. Coun. Rick de Jong, who made the issue of couplet conversion a key part of his election campaign in 2011, said Tuesday’s news was a “difficult pill to swallow.” “Simply put, the job of

MoTI is to move traffic. The couplet, the way it is now, moves traffic very well, unfortunately for us,” said de Jong. “Neither the science nor the dollars support dealing with the couplet in any way, shape or fashion at this point in time.” Coun. Gord Milsom said it was important for council to give clarity to downtown business of theby Central and South owners making a deciOkanagan sion Tuesday. / Similkameen “I think it would be ir-

responsible to our taxpayers to invest $40 million at this time,” said Milsom. West Kelowna’s next steps will be to initiate a public process to outline the recommended strategy, update the Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan, meet with MoTI to discuss the district’s change in direction and include Main Street, Elliott Road and Brown Road beautification projects in the 2014 budget.


DESPITE being a priority since West Kelowna’s incorporation in 2007, the district has set aside its dream of converting the Westbank couplet into a single, two-way highway along Dobbin Road.

Mystery dinner event planned The worldwide epicurean phenomenon Dîner en Blanc (White Dinner) will arrive in the Okanagan this summer. More than 800 guests are expected to participate in the Okanagan’s first “official” edition of Dîner en Blanc. The dinner will take place at a surprise location on July 4. Last year’s unofficial edition saw 200 people gather on Kelowna’s waterfront. This year, more than 800 people dressed in white will descend on a

secret location that will be revealed to them at the very last minute for what organizers say will be an unforgettable evening of elegance, beauty and magic. True to tradition, groups of 100 to 300 people will gather at specific rallying points across the city. They will then go to the dinner. Everyone is asked to dress elegantly in white, from head to toe, bring their own epicurean feasts, tables, chairs, fine china, silverware and white tablecloth.

Over the course of the evening, the diners will eat and celebrate amid live music, dancing, complete with festive white balloons. When it’s time to leave, guests pack up their crystal, dinnerware and tables, pick up all their litter and leaving no sign they were there. Those interested in joining Dîner en Blanc’s in the Okanagan, and to learn more, are encouraged to sign up quickly via because space is limited, say organizers.

The case has been turned over to the B.C. Coroners Service so it can complete its investigation. A Coldstream resident out for a walk in Kal Lake Provincial Park near the dog beach at 7:30 a.m. notice a cooler floating in the water and one on shore.

Dix says he’s staying on as B.C. NDP leader

Tom Fletcher


Adrian Dix is staying on as B.C. NDP leader while the party reviews its performance in the May 14 election and prepares for four more years in opposition. Dix didn’t specify a time frame for the election postmortem, but said he will work to prepare the NDP opposition to hold the government to its election commitments. “I assure you this review will spare nothing and no one, least of all me,” Dix told a news conference in Vancouver Wednesday. “It must address the strategy and tactics we employed in the election, and it must examine the fundamental question of who we are as a party and our relationship with the people of B.C.”

Dix took responsibility for mishandling a campaign that began with the NDP expecting a strong majority government after four years of turmoil in B.C. Liberal ranks over the harmonized sales tax and other issues. He singled out as a significant error his surprise mid-campaign decision to turn against the proposal to expand the Trans-Mountain oil pipeline that runs from northern Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state. Dix expressed no regret for avoiding negative advertising, although he was targeted by a long string of ads questioning his personal integrity and competence. He stood by his choice as an attempt to engage more voters, but the campaign didn’t deliver a significant increase in the 51 per cent participation rate

of the 2009 vote. “I don’t believe last week’s results are the end of positive politics in B.C.,” Dix said. “The answer to the Liberals’ populist, right-wing playbook is not to simply adopt it.” Instead of pushing Premier Christy Clark out of the job, the NDP ended the campaign down three seats to 33 and the B.C. Liberals increased their majority to 50 seats. Delta South independent Vicki Huntington was re-elected, and the B.C. Green Party made a breakthrough with the election of their first MLA, University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver in Oak Bay-Gordon Head. Clark is expected to meet with her team of candidates in Vancouver Thursday.

U g Immaculata’s Fitzpatrick S signs with UBCO Heat


IMMACULATA’S Siobhan Fitzpatrick will play for UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball squad in 2013-14.

In the end, there was only one real choice for Siobhan Fitzpatrick. The 6-foot-1 power hitter from Immaculata Regional High School has decided to play volleyball and pursue her post secondary education right in her own backyard—at UBC Okanagan. Fitzpatrick has signed on with Steve Manuel’s Heat women’s volleyball squad for the 2013-14 Canada West season. “There were others I applied to and was accepted at, but I only wanted to carry on with volleyball if I had the chance to do it at UBCO,” said Fitzpatrick, who is a Vancouver native but has lived most of her life in Kelowna. “I have been coached by Becki (Kosinski, Heat assistant) previously in club and have known Steve through Centre of Excellence…and through Junior Heat club volleyball.” Fitzpatrick was a key



figure in Immaculata’s silver-medal effort at the B.C. A girls high school championship in 2012. In addition to developing her game with Brian Drosdovech’s Mustangs the past three seasons, Fitzpatrick also honed her skills with the Junior Heat and Centre of Excellence. “I have learned so much from both of (Junior Heat and Centre of Excellence) and am looking forward to developing under their leadership,” she said. “The UBCO players I have had the chance to meet and/or scrimmage

with have all been very kind and welcoming and that helped make my decision all the easier.” Head coach Steve Manuel has watched Fitzpatrick’s progress for several years and is happy to bring the Immaculata product on board. “The extra training and developmental time is invaluable for local volleyball players and provides us an opportunity to work closely with them, this is how we know that Siobhan will be a great fit in our program,” said Manuel. “It’s because she has been with us, in a way, for a few years already.” Siobhan will be entering the Bachelor of Science program and has been designated a Chancellor’s Scholar for her high school academic achievement. Rutland’s Erin Drew and Fitzpatrick are two Junior Heat members that will graduate to the varsity Heat squad this fall.


Okanagan Sun adds three Prairie recruits to 2013 roster New Okanagan Sun head coach Shane Beatty continues to reap the benefits from a spring of dogged recruiting and a successful spring camp earlier this month. A trio of Prairie-bred recruits have committed to the club for the 2013 B.C. Football Conference season. The newest members of the Sun are: • Brett Chabidon, defensive back, East Side Eagles Majors (Winnipeg) The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Chabidon joins the Sun for his final season of junior eligibility

after sitting out last season following ACL surgery. He played his high school football at Churchill High School and was a teammate there of Sun receiver Tommy Howes and played his first year out of high school with the Winnipeg Rifles of the Prairie Football Conference. “I was planning on playing junior last year

but the second last game of the season (Eagles) I tore my knee,” said Chabidon. “I took the year off and knew I was going to pay somewhere this year, I know some of the guys with the Sun and they said I should talk to Shane. I knew right after spring camp I wanted to play here, there wasn’t that much to think about. I just wanted to get and talk to my family about it.” Shane Beatty expects Chabidon to push for a starting position. “When I went to Winnipeg to recruit I was told by a couple people about

Brett,” Beatty said, “that he was a hard nose, gritty player and that we should give him a chance even though he would only have one year with us. When we brought him out to camp he just shined, a real physical kid, a great kid.” • Kelton Hurt, offensive line, Chinook High School (Lethbridge) Hurt, 19, stands in at 6-foot-3, 280 pounds and impressed Beatty at spring camp with his tenacity and edgy demeanour. “He has a nasty streak to him,” said Beatty. “He has a lot of learning to do

about the position still, but he has some nasty in him on the field, I like that about him. He got in a couple dustups on the field at camp, he didn’t back down from anybody out there.” For Hurt’s part, he’s prepared to take on any role asked of him by the Sun staff. “I don’t know for sure where I sit (on offensive line depth chart) but I got in a lot of reps with first group at spring camp,” Hurt said. “I play guard or tackle and I don’t really care which side (of centre)” • Marcus Cooper, run-

ning back, Grande Prairie Composite High School The 5-foot-8, 189-pound Cooper joins the Sun from the alma mater of one of the nest backs ever to suit up for the Sun, the late Jeff Halvorson. Cooper, 18, knows well of Halvorson and his impact both at Grande Prairie Comp and with the Sun. “I’ve heard a lot about Jeff at home and have tried to model myself after his work ethic and commitment to the game,” said Cooper. “I try to put my heart into it as much as he did and commit to the game as much as he did.

“I know there are (some veterans at running back on the roster) but I want to use this season as a learning experience and hopefully get as much playing time as possible and show the coaches what I can do,” Cooper added. Coach Beatty on Cooper: “Marcus is a real shifty, slashing runner. He is extremely quick, he hits the hole quick and knows how to get out of there quick as well. He is an elusive back but he can also get you the tough yards.” The Sun opens main camp July 5.

U16 girls golden at Slurpee Cup

Kelowna United hoisted the Slurpee Cup in the U16 girls division at the 2013 edition of the annual soccer tournament last weekend in Kamloops. In Sunday’s final, United defeated a team from Calgary 2-0. Just three minutes in midfielder Bailey Peissard’s through ball set up Emma Johnson who, despite a 30 yard breakaway sprint, managed to finish with a stellar shot. Five minutes into the second half, keeper Avery Watson came up with a timely save off of a free kick from Calgary, as her tipped ball hit the cross bar and bounced over the net. Kelowna United se-

cured the gold match at the 45-minute mark when Claire Culver cut the ball back from the end line, with Emma Johnson heading the ball into the corner of Calgary’s net. On the road to gold, Kelowna tied Delta 0-0, defeated a team from Edmonton 1-0, and beat Prince George 2-1. KU U16 girls are coached by Linda George and Jozsef Breti. The players are:” Kiana Ajamzadeh, Emina Arima, Krisztina Breti, Claire Culver, Meghan Gerein, Emma Johnson, Jenna Labossiere, Lindsay, Lalach, Jazlyn Lazar, Brianne Mapson, Mackenzie Moore, Lenasia Ned,

Davison bossed her way into the 18-yard box and slotted the ball past the opposing keeper in the 30th minute to make it 1-1 at the half. After North Shore took the lead in the 59th minute, Okanagan again responded as Davidson notched her second of the match six minutes later. Both teams had several decent chances to go ahead in the dying minutes but the 2-2 score line was cemented at the final whistle. “It was a very quick, hard fought match versus a very different NSGSC team,” said Okanagan coach Claire Paterson. “Travelling and playing on the same day is always a hard task and with a thin roster of 13 players it didn’t make it any easier but I am happy with the result – it was a challenging game and we did

Play On ! back in Kelowna Hockey Night in Canada’s Play On! returns to downtown Kelowna on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26. The annual two-day tournament will feature hundreds of road hockey teams from across the Interior region, including boys, girls, men and women of all ages and skill levels. Play On is focused on celebrating and promoting the importance of

sport and wholesome recreational activity in the Kelowna and Okanagan community. In an attempt to do so, a few side events have been planned to help engage the community positively.

The seven-acre site is located between the existing neighbourhood park and the future village centre and, when built, is expected to become the hub of the community.

The site is of sufficient size for a future middle school in the upper Mission, which is consistent with the identified school needs for the area. The Ponds neighbourhood will be proceeding with the rezoning process for the site in order to facilitate the transfer of ownership of the land.

Business leaders set to take a walk Connecting with manufacturers throughout the Central Okanagan to identify ways to enhance manufacturing businesses in the region is the purpose of the Central Okanagan Business Walk on Tuesday, May 28. The walk will see business leaders connect face-to-face with operators of manufacturing businesses through a short informal discussion about their business environment. “The May walk to manufacturers will enable us to gather timely information from a sector that is key to the strength and diversity of the Central Okanagan economy,” said Corie Griffiths, busi-

ness development officer for the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission and Business Walks project manager. “A strong manufacturing sector creates well-paying jobs and helps to attract and retain a talented workforce which bodes well for our economy long term.” The focus on manufacturing reflects the importance of this sector to the regional, provincial and national economy. Manufacturing generates approximately three times as much into the economy as other sectors and provides well-paying jobs with career growth potential.

The Business Walk will identify common issues experienced by manufacturers in the Central Okanagan. Business Walks have proven highly effective in strengthening local economies by retaining businesses in a community and creating an environment where they can grow. Last year’s walk, the first in Canada, was so successful it has been recognized as a best practice in the Province of British Columbia’s online Business Attraction (Site Selection) toolkit. The May 28 walk will take place in manufacturing clusters throughout the region.

More than 30 volunteer business leaders (“walkers”) will call on approximately 100 businesses and have brief conversations around four key questions: How is business? What do you like about doing business in the Central Okanagan? What could be done to help your business thrive? What specific information would you like to have access to locally?” The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission will also coordinate a second general Business Walk this year to companies in various sectors on Oct. 1, as part of it celebration of Small Business Month.

Okanagan College revs up funding for trades with car raffle

The Okanagan College Foundation wants to hand over the keys of a classic car to rev up support for students in the trades. “The car came to us as a bit of a windfall,” said foundation executive director Kathy Butler. “When the donor mentioned she had a Mercedes she wanted to donate to us, it seemed like the perfect way to generate interest about our trades program.” Ute Koessler donated her late husband’s entire workshop of tools to the college’s trades department and thought her white 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190E, would be a perfect addition. Money raised from the raffle will be going towards trades-based scholarships and bursaries. Only 1,500 tickets are being printed, with a single ticket selling for $5. Tickets are available May 24 until June 8 at the Okanagan College Foundation office at the Kelowna KLO campus and will also be sold at the Okanagan College Spring Convocation June 8. The draw will be held following the ceremony.

Will Canada’s own Rocket Man inspire next generation?


n July 21, 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. That same year, in every neighbourhood in the country, kids would tell you they wanted to grow up and be an astronaut. It was a career everyone was talking about. But the space industry changed after that and many of those kids moved on into other professions, except for Chris Hadfield, who was nine-years-old when the famous moonwalk occurred. He obviously never gave up on his dream and showed us all that a kid from Canada who wanted to be an astronaut could do just that.


Jane Muskens So what does it take to be an astronaut? Years ago you had to be either American or Russian but that doesn’t seem to matter as much these days. Based on what astronauts do, it is a profession that requires a combination of understanding science and engineering, in both theory and application, along with the ability and desire to fly very fast aircrafts while sitting in a

small area without getting motion sickness. This is why most people who go into the field can stand a lot of rides at the amusement park and usually start in the air force and shift between flight training and university. After spending some time in his youth as a cadet, Hadfield joined the Canadian Armed Forces after he graduated from high school. Later on he enrolled in the Royal Military College and graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. Although he got a university education, his applied education comes from a number of distinct jet training oppor-

tunities through the Canadian Forces. This included flight experience in the 410 Tactical Fighter Operational Training Squadron, Canadair CF116 Freedom Fighter, and the McDonnell Douglas CF-18 Hornet. Opportunities opened up for him when he went to the United States and attended the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School and then in the early 1990s enrolled in the University of Tennessee Space Institute. From this school he graduated with a masters degree in aviation systems. It was this combination of education and training that helped Hadfield when he was chosen to be one of four Can-

adians assigned by the Canadian Space Agency (CSP) to NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) in Houston. His career with CSP and NASA has been varied and culminated with the opportunity to be the first Canadian commander of the International Space Station in which he led Expedition 35 leaving Earth on December 19, 2012 and returning just last week on May 13, 2013. He captured us online by using social media to bring outer space into our lives way beyond the grainy black and white film footage of Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon almost 24 years

ago. Hadfield ended his journey with a well-done version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity—if Armstrong had the same opportunity in 1969 he might have considered the same song which Bowie wrote after watching Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: Space Odyssey. Few of us will forget

Chris Hadfield, just like so many of us kids from the 1960s who never forgot Neil Armstrong. Will Hadfield have the same impact Armstrong did and will more kids today now want grow up and be astronauts? Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College.

‘A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client’ A I A judgment released May 10, 2013, following an eight day Supreme Court of British Columbia personal injury trial, reminds me of the saying: “A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client”. The decision reads like a train wreck. Marko Jurisevic was claiming compensation for injuries he sustained in three separate car/bicycle collisions. He had commenced three separate lawsuits, which is entirely appropriate, and they were all scheduled to be heard at the same time, which is also a common practice. The “train wreck” was that the judge, Madam Justice Kloegman, didn’t


Paul Hergott get to the part where she would assess the significance of Jurisevic’s injuries and losses and require financial compensation. She dismissed Jurisevic’s claims in all three lawsuits. In two, she found Jurisevic to be the one at fault, not the motorists he sued. The third was dismissed on Jurisevic’s technical failure to properly name the driver he was blaming for causing that collision.

Instead of being compensated for his injuries, Jurisevic is going to be facing a costs bill of tens of thousands of dollars, payable to ICBC. Self-representation in our court system is a problem, and the saying I quoted at the beginning of this column is rarely applicable. Most people facing the courts without representation do so not because of any foolishness, but because they cannot afford the horrendous expense of hiring a lawyer. That lack of legal representation results in horrendous inefficiencies in our justice system as well as unjust results. The “fool” label applies in the situation of a lawyer, financially able

to afford legal representation, who represents himself in his own lawsuit. I have not made my comments gender neutral because of course a woman lawyer would not be so foolish. When reading about the disastrous result of an unrepresented injury victim going up against the full power of the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, my mind would typically go to the assumption that it could not have been a fair fight, and the result could not have been a fair one. I am thankful to Madam Justice Kloegman for being so clear in her reasoning, which relieved me of my concern about unfairness. By the

way, I encourage anyone who is shocked or appalled by a media description of a court decision to read the judge’s actual reasons for judgment. You will learn something. The reasons for judgment include a section where the judge assessed Jurisevic’s credibility, and found it lacking. It had to do with video surveillance footage which, for honest and forthright victims, always helps prove rather than hurts their claims. Jurisevic was clearly not an honest and forthright victim. In Madam Justice Kloegman’s words: “I found the use of a walker by the plaintiff as he entered the office of Dr.

Pyper for an independent medical examination requested by the defendants to be particularly revealing. The surveillance tape shows him striding from his house to his truck, carrying a walker, lifting it above his head with ease and smoothly swinging it into the truck, jogging across the road back to his house, returning to the truck and climbing into it. Yet when he arrived in the truck at the appointed location, he purported to need it to walk up the path to the doctor’s office.” In the end, the “fool” label does apply in this case. With or without a lawyer, your personal injury case is going to be a train wreck if you are not hon-

est and forthright to all involved. And good luck finding a lawyer willing to take on a claim that has become a train wreck because of your own dishonesty. Go to the Supreme Court of British Columbia website, choose the button “Judgments” and search using “Jurisevic” and you can access the decision yourself.

This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case. Paul Hergott is a lawyer  at Hergott Law in West Kelowna.



Complaints about senators are coming in loud and clear

I heard loudly and clearly from a wide variety of citizens was the need to take immediate action on the MP pension plan, which was widely seen as grossly unfair to taxpayers. It was a message I shared in Ottawa as one of the first MPs to publicly call for changes to the MP pen-

sion plan that would make it more respectful to taxpayers. It was rewarding to have the chance to vote in favour of those changes in the last budget implementation bill which will ensure the MP pension plan moves towards equal contributions and also eliminDan Albas

ates early retirement provisions. These are changes Canadians expected and asked for and the government delivered on that request. It is for this reason that I am particularly disappointed by some recent events that I know a number of citizens are concerned about as well. In fact, I have heard from an overwhelming number of constituents this past week who are united in sharing their strong opposition to unaccountable Senators who engaged in actions that are unbecoming of public officials and that concern is justified, in my view. Although the Senate has proven difficult to reform, this is not from the lack of desire from a significant portion of the Canadian public nor from the want of trying by the government. It comes largely from particular provinces arguing through the courts, that the constitution requires their consent to make much needed changes. While Can-

adians await further clarification from the Supreme Court of Canada on the legal basis by which Senate reform or abolishment can occur, that delay should not be an excuse to engage in actions that are offensive to taxpayers. As I have in the past, I will continue to support changes that increase accountability to taxpayers. Ottawa is also very busy this week as a result of the government introducing a motion to ex- A tend the sitting hours of the House of Commons into the evenings. Some of the bills coming before the House from government this week include continued debate on Bill C-48, the Technical Tax Amendments Act, first debate on Bill C-52, the Fair Rail Freight Service Act, and report stage for Bill C-51, the Safer Witnesses Act. Senate Bill S9, the Nuclear Terrorism Act, will also come before the House for third reading debate. Private members business will include the first debate on Bill C-489, an act to amend the Criminal Code and the Corrections and Conditional Release Act (restrictions on offenders).

An alternative to welfare may very well help many Canadians


n Canada we have many reasons to be thankful. We live in a vast and beautiful space and enjoy freedoms and luxuries many in the world can only dream of. Still, there are some areas in which Canada could stand to improve. A recent article in Maclean’s magazine shared some of the stats from a UN agency report on the status of Canadian children. In this report, Canada was ranked in comparison to 28 other industrialized countries and we didn’t score as well as you might think. We came in 17th for overall well-being and did


Paul Latimer poorly when it came to providing the basic necessities for children to grow into healthy and productive adults. In terms of health and safety, including vaccination rates and infant/child mortality, we ranked almost dead last— in 27th place. We are in the bottom third for relative child poverty.

Actually—poverty is said to be at the heart of many of our health problems. In past columns I have written about the negative health effects of poverty. It is probably the single biggest predictor of poor health. That is not news— and yet what are we doing to reduce or eradicate poverty in Canada? According to the Maclean’s article—Canada has had a relatively stable poverty rate for 30 years with between 11 and 14 percent of Canadians living below the poverty line. A growing number of people are starting to advocate for a change

in our approach to this issue. One idea that warrants further investigation is a guaranteed annual income or negative income tax. This would replace our current welfare system and would ensure Canadians had a certain minimum income. Those not earning enough from their work would see their income topped up through the tax system to a designated minimum amount. Unlike welfare, which is clawed back when people get employment or attend school, this money would be a grant to be spent as Canadians chose.

Of course, critics of this idea say it would result in laziness and people losing the motivation to better their employment circumstances. Proponents of this idea believe it would bring positive results on several fronts. Not only would a negative income tax replace the paternalistic and oppressive welfare system we currently have, but it would lower administrative costs substantially by delivering through the existing tax system and it would also reduce the negative health impacts of poverty. These potential positives have garnered a

Big trunk/garage sale slated for OC Saturday tandem with a giant garage sale hosted by Okanagan College in the automotive shop on at the KLO campus. It will feature gently used furniture, including desks, chairs, shelves and filing cabinets, plus computer printers and monitors. The maximum price for any item in the college garage sale will be $25. Rae Stewart with the waste reduction office said with more than 150

vendors signed up to sell their wares right from the back of their vehicles, or trunks, it promises to be a busy day of bargains and reuse. “It’s going to be a buyer’s paradise. As they say, one person’s trash is another’s treasure. Plus, keeping any unnecessary material out of our landfill is always a win,” she said. Stewart added, given the favourable feedback from residents, another

trunk sale is also planned for later this year. “We’re going to run another event Saturday, Sept. 28, to give more people an opportunity to take part. We initially designed these events for those in condos or apartments who don’t traditionally have the opportunity to host their own garage sales, but naturally we’re not limiting it in that way, anyone can take part.”

The Trunk Sale will be held in parking lot 17 next to the student residence buildings. The college garage sale will be held adjacent to the trunk sale in the campus automotive shop. Both sales are free to attend, There will be a pancake breakfast hosted by the Okanagan Mission Lions Club. For more information go to recycle, or call 250-4696250.

urity decreased hospital visits by 8.5 percent and also significantly lowered doctor visits and mental health issues among those participating. I think a program such as this should be tested on a larger scale to determine if it may prove more beneficial than our current social assistance program. It could just revolutionize the way we treat poverty in Canada—and by extension could improve many aspects of the health and well-being of our citizens.

growing number of advocates from all political backgrounds. We do already have a similar system in place for seniors in Canada. Implementing the guaranteed income program for seniors brought this country’s poverty rates among the elderly way down. We now have some of the lowest poverty rates for this age group—compared with some of the highest for child poverty. In the 1970s a pilot project in Manitoba tested the guaranteed income model and new research examining its health effects found that even modest income sec-

Finally I would also like to recognize all of those who ran

for the office of MLA but who were not successful. It takes great courage to run for public office and requires a significant personal commitment during the writ period. A special thank-you to the many volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes helping candidates in their respective campaigns. I look forward to working with our new and re-elected MLAs, along

OK Pride Festival bringing well-known drag queen to town The organizers of this year’s Okanagan Pride Festival have announced they are bringing in an “infamous” drag queen and actor to headline this year’s Taste The Rainbow dance during the festival. The drag queen, known simply as Willam, will appear at the dance

on Aug. 17 that is part of the annual Okanagan Pride Festival “This is a giant step forward for the Okanagan Pride Festival,” said Wilbur Turner, Okanagan Pride Society president and festival co-chairman. “This calibre of performer will attract a cap-

acity audience to this event and is an acknowledgement of the growth of this festival.” He said festival organizers are already searching out a larger venue for next year’s event. The Taste the Rainbow dance caps off a week of events, includ-

ing a Festival in the Park, beachside in City Park earlier in the day. For a list of events go to http://okanaganpride. com/pride-events/. Willam, who makes Los Angeles his home, will be in Kelowna for a special performance. Pride festival organiz-

ers say it will be the first time such a well-known, high-profile international star will grace the stage for the local event. Willam is best known for antics that had him disqualified as a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race, seen on OUTtv, and enough of a fan favourite

to land on RuPaul’s Drag U as a makeover professor the following season. He is also known for his roles on television shows such as The New Normal, Southland, CSI:NY, Saved, Cold Case, The Shield, Criminal Minds, Women’s Murder Club, The Forgotten,

and HDNet’s Svetlana. This year’s event will be the seventh annual Okanagan Pride Festival. Organizers say the festival is designed to connect community, bring awareness to social issues surrounding the LGBT community and celebrate diversity here.

Words worth their weight…as the cliche goes Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A picture isn’t always worth a 1,000 words in Ghada Alatrash’s view. The Syrian-Canadian writer and translator says there are times when we become so desensitized to the images we see in the news that listening to the contemplative, deep wisdom found in an artist’s words or music. “I see audience members closing their eyes and listening and absorbing the music. “A lot of audience members come out with bloodshot eyes because of how moved they are— how powerful music and poetry can be,” she said. Her poetry to music presentation comes to Kelowna’s French Cultural Centre this June and will likely play Victoria and Nelson in the coming months, following a presentation at a translator’s conference. Alatrash uses the poems and that music of her homeland to show people in her new country the great artistry overlooked by North American popular culture. “There is an almost

GHADA ALATRASH sees how much the poetry and music she performs moves people. total absence of Arab culture and music in the West. On our stages you do hear Beethoven, you do hear Bach, but the opposite does not hold true,”

she said. “And it is so amazing.” From musicians like Lebanese composer Marcel Khalife and Iraqi Naseer Shamma to Najat

Abdul Samad, a Syrian novelist and physician, her show highlights the limitless possibility that appreciating an amalgam of east and west allows.


“You don’t see a teenager here reciting a poem, which is so unfortunate,” she said. When poetry is put to music, throughout the

Middle East, it’s easy to recite and sing and pass on from generation to generation—along with its meaningful emotions and message. “Poets take you into a very deep world of thought,” she said. “…I love Western music, but what they’re reciting is not actually the deepest thoughts.” Making these connections, filling in the culture gap may also have a side benefit of helping the outside world connect with the people of Syria, empathize and spur a desire to help. For many years, Alatrash was able to spend summers in her homeland, but she has not dared return to the country in the two years since the Arab Spring ignited conflict through the region. Every morning she wakes up to Facebook images of dead children, wound together in “great clumps of human suffering,” and says she’s very doubtful most Canadians even realize the extent of the atrocities. “A Canadian is someone who stands whole-heartedly for animal rights. That’s what

Muhatma Ghandi said. A nation is judged by how it treats its animals,” she said. “I tend to believe Canadians can’t know what is happening there.” She is shocked by the indifference she’s seen around the world, and while she knows it was the same for places like Rwanda during its genocide, she cannot help but use her art, and the art of others, to help remove the blinders. But the performance is by no means doom and gloom. Among the 12 poems she will recite is one she wrote from the heart about her daughter, and another one about the doubts of a mother. There will be a newly released poem from an undisclosed Syrian poet and a selection from Lebanese-American poet Youssef Abdul Samad. Alatrash has just published translations of a selection of his poems. She lives in Cranbrook, and will perform her evening of poetry and music Saturday, June 1 beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the French Cultural Centre, corner of Bernard and Richter in Kelowna.

Into the Darkness for Trekkies, but see it in 2D



Paramount wanted director, JJ Abrams to make the film in 3D. Abrams wanted to shoot in 2D or IMAX format. A compromise resulted, making this the first time in history that a movie was filmed in the IMAX format and then converted to 3D in post- production. I love 3D, but don’t waste your money on 3D for this show, it’s not going to make enough of a Ddifference in the visual effect to warrant the extra money. This time, the young Kirk (Chris Pine) is still brash, reckless and full of bravado and surrounded by basically the same crew as the 2009 film. Zachary Quinto (Spock); Zoe Saldana (Uhura), who was also in Avatar; Anton Yelchin (Chekov); Quebec born, Bruce Greenwook (Pike) were joined by Simon Pegg, a British actor, writer and comedian who’s comedic talents are well used. Christopher Doohan (son of the original Scotty, James Doohan) makes a cameo appearance as a transport officer along side the current Scotty, Simon Pegg. The acting heavyweight of the show is Benedict Cumerbatch (Khan), who actually recorded his screen test in a friend’s kitchen using his iPhone. He was truly the antagonist with talent. Leonard Nemoy makes his eighth appearance, briefly, as Spock and thereby breaks the tie with William Shatner for the most appearances. So, a crisis on Earth calls the crew back and

Susan Steen when a high ranking, trusted Starfleet officer proves to be the enemy, the fight ensues. The young, Kirk once again takes the helm, played very different-

ly from the skirt-chasing Kirk of old (I was always amazed that there wasn’t some sort of inter-galactic war after one of the old Kirk’s forays to another planet, considering he had not much respect for the laws of the species where women were concerned). During the show, Kirk is given the space coordinates 23174611. These are the coordinates for one of the moons orbiting Jupiter. Once a Trekkie, al-

ways a Trekkie, so I liked this one. Box office results suggest a less than stellar (sorry) first weekend opening at $84 million, but there are some big films out there right now. I think it’s worth the money and I think that there will be another Star Trek coming to theatres in the future. I might have wanted to see more gadgetry and a bigger presence by the Klingons (yup, they’re

back), but overall it’s well done, it’s fun, fast-paced and it’s a show for the whole family—so what’s not to like?

I give Star Trek Into the Darkness three warp drive reels.

Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses in a big waywhich, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgement—until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs.

ICBC asking cyclists, and drivers to take care

An average of 150 cyclists are injured every month from May to October when crashes involving cyclists peak in B.C. With Bike to Work Week approaching (May 27 to June 2) and warmer weather encouraging more cyclists on our roads, ICBC is asking drivers and cyclists to share our roads and help keep everyone safe. “I regularly commute to work on my bike and I know how important it is for drivers and cyclists to be aware of each other on our roads at this time of year,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety. “As a cyclist, I never assume drivers can see me and use multiple lights on the front and rear of my bike. When I’m driving, I give cyclists plenty of room so they’re able to react to the unexpected such as a car door suddenly opening into their path.” “Too often police officers see the devastating results of a crash between a bicycle and a vehicle,” said chief constable Jamie Graham of the Victoria Police Department and traffic safety committee chairman of the B.C. Association of Chiefs of Police. “Whether you’re a recreational cyclist or cycle to and from work, it’s important to always wear your helmet and follow the rules of the road. These crashes can be prevented—drivers and cyclists need to watch for each other at all times and use eye contact and hand signals to help anticipate each other’s next move.” Here are ICBC’s tips for cyclists and drivers on how to share the road together: • It’s important to perform regular maintenance and safety checks on your bike to prevent mechanical breakdown. The beginning of the cycling season is a good time to get a tune up. Check the tires and that both the front and rear brakes are working properly and clean, inspect and lubricate the gear, chain and derailleur. • Look for signs of wear on your helmet and make sure you use an approved bicycle helmet that meets safety standards. It’s the law in B.C. and you could be fined for not wearing one. Bike helmets can prevent up to

85 per cent of serious injuries, which account for 80 per cent of all related deaths. • Position yourself so other road users can easily see you – don’t weave in and out of traffic and avoid riding in the blind spots of vehicles. When turning, always hand signal well in advance of any turn. First shoulder check, then hand signal and then with both hands on the handlebars, shoulder check again before turning. • Wear bright, reflective clothing so you’re as visible as possible. If you ride at night, you’re required to equip your bike with a white headlight visible at 150 metres and a rear red light and reflector visible at 100 metres but consider adding more lights for increased visibility. Even still, never



assume you have been seen by a vehicle – even when you have the right of way. • Plan your route before you set off. If you’re new to cycling, take routes that are less busy and use bike lanes when possible. Cyclists must follow the rules of the road just like any other vehicle. ICBC also has several tips for drivers, including: •You should always actively look for cyclists in traffic. Wherever possible, make eye contact to let them know you have seen them. A cyclist often relies on eye contact as a means of communication as they try to anticipate your next move. • Make yourself familiar with the hand signals that cyclists use. If you’re not familiar with them or need a refresher, read ICBC’s learn to drive smart guide (page 77). • Shoulder checking is very important, especially when making righthand turns at intersections

and before you open your door to get out of your vehicle. When passing another vehicle, make sure you check for oncoming cyclists ahead of the vehicle you are passing. If you want to pass a cyclist, make sure there is enough space as a significant number of cyclist crashes result from side-swiping. • Drivers must yield to cyclists as they do any other vehicle and should maintain at least three seconds of following distance. Cyclists sometimes need to react quickly and unexpectedly to avoid hazards on the road so an increased distance will give you more time to safely react. • Do not drive, stop or park in a bike lane. If you need to cross a bike lane to turn right, or to pull to the side of the road, take extra care, signal well in advance and always yield to cyclists. • Don’t honk your horn at a cyclist unless you need to give them a warning. A loud honk could startle them or even cause them to fall. To see how many crashes involving cyclists are happening in your neighbourhood, view ICBC’s online cyclist crash map. ICBC helps fund safety improvements for cyclists through its safer roads program. These include shoulder widening and pavement marking for bicycle use, highly-visible coloured pavement markings for conflict areas along bike lanes and helping fund safety studies on areas of concern for communities.


In the Lower Mainland, on average, 600 cyclists are injured and four killed from May to October every year. On Vancouver Island, on average, 170 cyclists are injured and one killed from May to October every year. In the Southern Interior, on average, 100 cyclists are injured and two killed from May to October every year. In the North Central region, on average, 20 cyclists are injured and one killed from May to October every year. Crash data is from 2008 to 2012 and fatality data is from 2007 to 2011.

Local residents O ask to join i worldwide march On Saturday, May 25, people from more than 300 communities in 40— plus countries will take to the streets to promote their views on the future of food. Dubbed March Against Monsanto, this worldwide grassroots event will highlight controversial issues surrounding the corporation of Monsanto, viewed by the protest movement supporters as aggressively pursuing an agenda to forever alter the world food system and maintain rigid control of it. Genetically modified (GM) “foods” and the issues surrounding them are at the heart of this march.

It comes at a time when locally we are being forced to make decisions about the possibility of bio—engineering in our communities. The attempted introduction of a GM apple to the Okanagan Valley has huge implications for the future of the fruit industry, both conventional and organic, claim the march supporters. As well, recent demonstrations and petitions in Kelowna have highlighted concerns surrounding GM alfalfa and how it could spell the demise of the organic beef industry.

OC students join stargazers in new telescope project

With Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield now returned to Earth and the newest Star Trek mov-ie at the movie theatres, it -seems everything astronomical is in the air. n That’s no different at Okanagan College where professors from multiple odisciplines are working to get closer to the Milky eWay by assisting with -the installation of three dradio telescopes and infrahstructure for the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada—Okanagan sChapter (RASC-OC). - “The amount of col-lege involvement in the last year has really spiraled upwards,” said Rifchard Christie, physics and astronomy department chair and an RASCOC member. “For a non-profit like the RASC-OC it provides us with some great expertise locally to take on the challenges of developing a first-class astronomy outreach facility.” While the building of the radio telescopes is in the hands of local amateur Hugh Pett, various aspects of the project are being handled by professors and more than a dozen students from four engineering technology departments—mechanical, electronic, civil and water. Two mechanical en-

gineering technology students (Jonathan Peter and Luigi Ennas) are working with professor Vladimir Neykov on the antenna mount, and designing and testing motors for precise antenna tracking. Two electronic engineering students (Jamie Maloway and Brett McDowell) are working with professors Kevin Bradshaw and Randy Brown on designing the electronics for process control and the wireless transmission for the data from the telescopes Six students from civil engineering technology (Michael McGoldrick, Josh Goode, Tanner Vollema, Mack Murtland, James Hall, and Nate Johnson) are conducting a survey of the locations for the telescope sites with professor Terry Stewart. And in the fall an entire class of water engineering technology students, under the direction of lab assistant Roland Oliynyk, will be designing a water acquisition and delivery system, plus a waste water system for the chapter’s proposed new classroom space— the Discovery Centre. Each year the RASCOC hosts more than 100 events at the Okanagan Observatory reaching more than 8,000 people.

Christie said the addition of the radio telescopes gives the public a chance to learn more about what are essentially the building blocks for the universe. “Radio telescopes capture images of the stuff that is between the stars— the gases and the dust—in other words the material that will give rise to make the stars, the planets. It’s an enriched soup of chemicals and elements from which life originates.” Christie said the plan is to have the first radio telescope in operation this summer, with the other two coming on stream over the next two years. “People, including kids as young as five, will be able to collect data from the telescopes and discover and look at the Milky Way.” Christie said there’s no better time to capture the public’s interest than now. “Our primary mandate at the RASC is one of public outreach, and here at the college it’s about giving students meaningful experiences that can lead to professional careers,” he said. “To have this come together at a time when Chris Hadfield has become an international ambassador for space science is a huge boost in the arm.”




As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

For too long, they say, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favouritism. “Organic farmers and small farm producers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and the genetic makeup of plants,” says a press release issued by the local march organizers. The goal of March Against Monsanto—Kelowna is to spread awareness about the harmful effects of genetically modified foods, expose the cronyism between big business and government, and promote organic food systems. “March Against Monsanto—Kelowna demands that all GMO products be labeled, that our food supply be protected,

and that local farmers be supported,” said the press release. Protesters will gather Saturday, 11 a.m., at Parkinson Recreation Centre,


for the one—hour march and rally. For more information see 811244895/?ref=ts&fref =ts.

Loose muscles in the throat cause snoring, also interrupted breathing and gasping for air (sleep apnea), which brings on being tired all day, need for napping, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, irregular heart beat. Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking #23 up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. <Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB < All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger.

Bell uses the power of nature to help put life back into your lifestyle

Separating genuine cures from the placebo effect I n order to measure the effectiveness of a new drug, pharmaceutical companies are required to test the medication in a double blind placebo trial. This means that the drug is compared to a substance that is inert (the placebo). Instead of giving people the medication in question, they give them sugar pills in place of the medication. None of the people in the study know


Annie Hopper if they are given the real drug or the placebo. Again, this is in an effort to measure the effectiveness of the medication being tested. However, a strange

phenomenon takes place —even the people who are given the “placebo” improve. The medical industry tends to downplay placebo results. After all, they have a lot at stake. But doesn’t it make sense that we should be researching how the placebo effect works? To that end, there is some research that sheds light on this mysterious effect. Research to date on

the placebo effect has focused on the relationship between the mind and body. One of the most common theories is that the placebo effect is due to a person’s expectations. If a person expects a pill to do something, then it’s possible that their body’s own healing mechanisms can cause changes similar to what a medication might do. In other words, changing your thought

processes and your emotional state can activate healing in your body. There are actual physical changes that occur, so this isn’t “in the head” or merely positive thinking. For instance, some studies have documented an increase in the body’s production of endorphins, one of the body’s natural pain relievers. In fact, the placebo effect is sometimes as effective as the drug being ADVERTISING FEATURE


Every year more than 14.3 million office visits for back pain are reported. It’s the second-most frequent reason that people visit their doctor. The results of these visits are predictable. The options are rest, hot and cold packs, pain medication, and physical therapy. Chronic sufferers looking for relief soon hear that only two paths exist — either live with the pain, or undergo surgery. Spinal Care Canada Solutions is a non-invasive, in-office procedure that may offer quick relief as well as long-term results for neck pain, back pain, herniated, bulging or degenerated discs, sciatica, and osteoarthritis. Spinal Care Canada uses an FDA-registered computerized mechanism that provides for exacting treatment of the cervical spine (neck) as well as the lumbar spine (low back). This approach is to non-surgically treat the actual cause of neck and back pain. If you have bulging and herniated discs, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, post-surgical failures, arthritis and related challenges, you have an altogether new chance to possibly relieve nagging and chronic pain. People across the province using Spinal Care Canada Solutions are

function. In fact, a new science based on epigenetics “control above the genes” suggests the ability to change our thoughts and emotional state can also change our genetics. Dr. Bruce Lipton, author of the Biology of Belief, explains that our genes respond to both our external and our internal environment. Engaging in more positive thoughts and emotional states changes the body’s physiology and chemistry that alters our internal environment. This has a direct affect on the trillions of cells in our body and the expression of genes. What this research suggests is that we have more power to influence our health than we thought. That being said, changing our internal chemistry takes practice, patience and time. Truly, the ability to heal resides in each and every one of us as we connect to the physician within.

reporting relief of their pain. They are requiring less medication and are able to enjoy normal everyday activities again.

Spinal Care Canada Solutions enables many patients to return to work and return to a more active and fulfilling lifestyle. Benefits of

tested. This is often the case with mild to moderate depression and anti-depressant medications. Dr. Irving Kirsch, associate director of the Placebo Studies Program at Harvard Medical School, challenges the very effectiveness of antidepressants. Dr. Kirsch’s research suggests the difference between the effect of a placebo and the effect of an antidepressant is minimal for most people. The results are not simply in your head or imaginary because it causes a physical change in the body, like lowering blood pressure and heart rate and can also causes changes in the brain that can be measured through neuro-imaging. When we alter our expectations to something more constructive and positive, we will naturally shift our focus of attention and our emotional state. This ability to shift our thoughts and emotional state has a profound effect on the body’s physiology and our ability to fight disease as well as heal from illness. This also has a profound affect on brain

243 Squadron celebrates 50th anniversary

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Kelowna’s 243 Ogopogo Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. To commemorate this event, the squadron will host a celebratory dinner after the annual ceremonial review on Saturday, June 1. Former Kelowna cadets are invited to attend and be part of the celebrations. “With hundreds of local youth having been members of the squadron over the past five decades, we are hoping that some will come out and join us in the festivities,” said the 243 Squadron commanding officer Capt. Aidan Ketchum. “It will be an excellent opportunity to see some familiar faces, talk about shared cadet experiences and join us in welcoming the next 50 years of air cadets in Kelowna as this year comes to an end.” Already, 243 Squadron alumni are planning to attend. John Kish, one of the original cadets from 1953, is looking forward to the evening, a chance to reminisce about his time with the squadron. “My best memories were flying in a Hercules Transport and parading at the Legion Hall at Ellis and Leon downtown. I hope to see others from that time at the dinner,” Kish said. The Celebration Dinner takes place at East Kelowna Hall on June 1, 5 p.m. Tickets are $25/person. Those interested in attending are asked to contact Mary Wall at 250-450-9057 or stop by the East Kelowna Hall on Wednesday evenings between 6:30 and 9 p.m. to arrange for the tickets.

Predeceased by two brothers: Harold and Russ. Our mother was born in 1940 in Saltcoats, Saskatchewan to Sam and May Graff. The family moved to B.C. when Mom was five years old. Her school years were spent living in Winfield where the family had a dairy farm. Mom grew up milking cows before and after school, helping in a big way with the work load inherent on the farm. She was very competitive and played many sports including helping bring home a provincial softball championship playing catcher. Later in life she took up golf and got extremely proficient at it until it became too difficult with her progressing affliction with arthritis. At the ripe old age of seventeen she married dad and began life on the family farm on Byrnes road in Kelowna. Between duties working alongside her husband on the farm and raising a family, Mom found time to be very active in various volunteer organizations such as Kinettes, Meals on Wheels, etc. We have enjoyed a very hard working, fun-loving and loyal mother and are all grateful to have had her. We will miss her.

The Okanagan, particularly around Mission Creek, is under a high streamflow advisory, as of mid-Wednesday, following a series of rainstorms that swept through the valley Tuesday and Wednesday. Downpours of rain drummed on hard surfaces and left pools of water on roads, as well as swelling waterways like Mission Creek, which peaked

at flows of 58 cubic metres per second early Wednesday—a one in three year event, reported Des Anderson, section head, public safety and protection in the natural resource operations ministry. The severe thunderstorm warning issued by Environment Canada ended Wednesday, after thunderstorms and overnight showers eased up. Mission Creek started to rise late Tuesday evening, and went from flows of

23 cubic metres per second to 58 on Wednesday. With additional rain forecast, and runoff from the very large Mission Creek watershed still working its way into the creek and down to the valley bottom, he anticipated it would continue rising. Okanagan Lake has also been rising and by Wednesday it was 35 centimetres above normal for this time of the year, and just 18 centimetres from full pool, a level it doesn’t

generally reach until the middle of June, he reports. Anderson said they have been releasing as much as possible from the lake system downstream since the beginning of May. A complicating factor is that there are already issues in the south of the valley where high groundwater has flooded fields along the Okanagan River and Osoyoos Lake has risen above its target level for this time of year, in part because the Similkameen River





is also very high and has backed up into Osoyoos Lake. With the rainstorms, it’s expected to rise again. “We’re discharging as much as possible from Okanagan Lake, balancing that with releases from Osoyoos Lake. Flows from Okanagan Lake are close to the design capacity of the channel, at 53 meters per second, in a channel designed to handle 60 metres

aside its dream of converting the downtown couplet into a single, two-way highway along Dobbin Road. Council made the decision after realizing the project would cost the municipality around $40 million.

West Kelowna is giving up its fight to convert the couplet—which chops the community’s downtown core into three sections—into a single highway along Dobbin Road. Despite being a priority since incorporation in 2007, council unanimously decided the initiative would be too costly for the district to take on itself. “I think everybody’s disappointed with the results of a really serious look at this issue,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. “We don’t have a sense of community, a sense of place down there in the downtown core—that’s what’s disappointing.” Michael Skene, president of Boulevard Transportation Group, was at Tuesday’s council meeting to discuss results from a study that looked into options regarding conversion of the couplet. Skene said the oneway couplet, which was constructed in the early 1980s, currently meets the needs of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure; therefore, the

couplet conversion a key part of his campaign in 2011, said Tuesday’s news was a “difficult pill to swallow.” “Simply put, the job of MoTI is to move traffic. The couplet, the way it is now, moves traffic very well, unfortunately for us,” said de Jong. “Neither the science nor the dollars support dealing with the couplet in any way, shape or fashion at this point in time.” Coun. Gord Milsom said it was important for council to give clarity to downtown business owners by making a decision Tuesday. “I think it would be irresponsible to our taxpayers to invest $40 million at this time,” said Milsom. West Kelowna’s next steps will be to initiate a public process to outline the recommended strategy, update the Westbank Centre Revitalization Plan, meet with MoTI to discuss the district’s change in direction and include Main Street, Elliott Road and Brown Road beautification projects in the 2014 budget.

Heavy rains push lake limits Lake from A1 per second of flow,” he explained. High tributary flows in the South Okanagan are contributing even more runoff to the swollen river due to the heavy rainfall, he noted. And, high in the Mission Creek watershed there was a further 25 millimetres of rainfall, with some snow mixed in,

Tuesday. “The more rain we get the less room there is in Okanagan Lake for normal snowmelt runoff,” explained Anderson. However, the forecast for the rest of the week and weekend is for showers, which he feels the lake can handle, as long as they don’t turn into heavy rain. The good news is that the cooler weather has

slowed the rate of snow melt. Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist said this upper low pressure system is normal for mid-May through July 7; what he calls the Okanagan’s ‘monsoon season,’ with lots of rain showers and stormy weather. There was even snow this week on Allison Pass, the Okanagan Connector

of the Coquihalla Highway and the Coquihalla itself, he said. Actually, he said it was very dry in the Okanagan for May until the black storm clouds moved in Tuesday. Unfortunately, he said it’s difficult to predict how much rain will come in the next few days because it simply depends on where the storms develop, but he did expect there would be another dump before Sunday or so when it’s expected this system will begin to break up and dissipate. Deputy emergency program coordinator Brian Moore, also administration officer for the Kelowna Fire Department, said there were a couple of reports of lightning strikes Tuesday in the Black Mountain area, but firefighters couldn’t find anything, so it’s expected the rain put them out. Mission Creek is rising and the regional district has again closed the Mission Creek Greenway underpass at the Casorso Road Bridge. Greenway users are advised to use caution and cross Casorso Road only when it is safe, and motorists are asked to watch for greenway users crossing the road in the area. The trail on the south side of Mission Creek at the Gordon Drive Bridge is also closed until further notice. People are warned that water levels may rise unexpectedly and children and pets, in particular, should be kept back from the banks of creeks which may be slippery or subject to erosion with high water. Boaters are advised to watch for floating debris that may enter the lake as a result of the runoff.
