FEATHERED FRIEND — Penticton veteran Jim DeMarce smiles as he holds this tiny feathered friend he found sitting in the grass near the downtown Veterans Memorial Park and Veterans Way. DeMarce and other vets were attending a recent ceremony in the area when he spotted the sparrow, eventually setting it free.

It’s a saga that has been almost a decade in the making. But with the sale of the second of three city-owned lots behind Munson Mountain, it looks like it’s finally coming to an end. During their regular meeting Monday, Penticton city council announced the sale of a second of the three properties it owns near Munson Mountain. This property, at 1275 Munson Ave., sold for $968,000, more than $200,000 above the price it was purchased for in 2004. The three properties have been an ongoing source of controversy since they were purchased by the city with the intention of converting the agricultural land and building a four-plex ball diamond on it, increasing the available ball fields in the community. “There was a huge uproar from the community and we put it to a vote and that was shot down,” said Coun. John Vassilaki, who was on council in 2004 when the purchases were made. He is normally opposed to the sale of city-owned lands, but said he agreed to this one because the city is not equipped to run an agricultural operation. “We had others running it and we were losing money,” said Vassilaki. “This was the most feasible thing to do, to sell it. We made a profit of $200,000, which paid back most, if not all, the interest which we paid to the present day.” Allan Schwartz, a realtor for Cold-

well Banker who has been involved with the properties off and on since they were first purchased, said the property sold for about $747,000 in 2004. He also arranged the current sale to Susan and David Tebbutt, who currently operate a vineyard across the road, and plan to increase their acreage. “The plan is to plant a vineyard there,” said Schwartz, noting that there are about four acres planted with apples now. He agrees the city made the right decision in selling the property, though they have had to reduce the price since it went on the market in August 2009. “It was $1.35 million I believe they started at,” said Schwartz, adding that the city did get fair value, especially considering the limited market for agricultural land. “So the city did well, based on the current conditions. There has been few sales, less than six in the last year,” he said. “The soil is good. It will be good for grapes, good for a vineyard. This is the right buyer for the property, he has been looking at it for a long time.” According to Vassilaki, the money from the sale of the Munson property will still be used to increase recreation possibilities in Penticton. “Those funds can be used to actually purchase property that we can use for parklands, real parkland that the community can use,” said Vassilaki. “We have several in mind that we are discussing.” Another neighbouring property was sold last year and, according to city manager Annette Antoniak, the city has no plans to sell the remaining property, which backs directly onto Munson Mountain Park.

Horses off and running at Desert Park Joe Fries Western News Staff

Spectators lined up five deep along the rail Saturday to watch as horse racing returned to Osoyoos — and more like 10 deep to place bets on the ponies. The set of six races at Desert Park marked the first such organized event in the South Okanagan in a decade. Purses ranged from $3,000 up to $15,000. Racing fans were also trying to cash in, although their betting strategies seemed to place a heavy emphasis on luck alone. Osoyoos man Rick Greschner put his initial bet on a horse that had the longest odds in the hopes his hunch would pay off handsomely. It didn’t. “We didn’t win any money, but at least (the horse) got second,” Greschner said while looking over the odds for the second run of the day. “My wife went online and got things organized before we came, and we just started betting,” he added. The last time Lorna Patterson put money on a pony before Saturday was the last time a race was run at Desert Park. Her tried-and-true strategy hinged on the weight of the jockeys and the age of the horses. “If it’s a light jockey, maybe the horse can run faster,” she said with a laugh. Patterson, an Osoyoos resident, acknowledged her best days at the track weren’t terribly lucrative. “I might have made two bucks the whole time,” she said. “It’s not to make any money, just a good day out.” She wasn’t the only one just soaking up the atmosphere. Hundreds of people and vehicles jammed the neighbourhood around the race track, which was put back into use by the nonprofit Desert Park Exhibition Society. “They weren’t ready for this crowd,” Patterson said, noting just a small section of the grandstand was open to seat about 100 people, while many more stood. Penticton woman Judy Glowa agreed organizers may have

been caught flat-footed by the big crowd, but enjoyed the races nonetheless. She placed her bets on horses whose names caught her ear, animals like Two Penny and Mr. Gnarly. “I just like the sounds of their names,” she said. Glowa’s first $4 wager earned her $40, but was based instead

on a tip she overheard in line. “Actually, the lady behind me was saying which (she chose) and I just said, ‘Let’s pick those two,” she explained. “It was just luck of the draw.” All bets will be on again when racing resumes at Desert Park on Aug. 31.

West Bench park pays tribute to war veterans Joe Fries Western News Staff

Now inscribed on bronze plaques in a West Bench park are the names of 186 war veterans who helped settle the community and, more recently, began providing a history lesson to new arrivals. Neighbours on Saturday celebrated the official grand opening of Selby Park, which is home to the plaques and an accompanying map that shows who lived where when the first residents moved to the new subdivision in the 1950s. The other notable addition to the park is a bright, yellow sculpture that depicts a solider holding a gun in one hand and his wife’s hand in the other. “Some people have had an interesting response to that,” Michael Brydon, the area director for the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, told the crowd. “Some people have said, ‘Look, there’s a guy holding a gun and holding

his family’s hand. I don’t know how I feel about that.’” But Brydon said the sculpture is meant to make people think and consider what life was like for Second World War veterans who settled there with assistance provided under the Veterans’ Land Act. “How did they feel about dropping everything, going off to war, and then coming back as if nothing had happened?” Brydon said. The focus of the park, he continued, “is to remind people that something important happened, and it matters a lot.” Sue Gibbons, who spearheaded the effort to overhaul the park as a tribute to her father, Bob Jenkins, and other veterans, said the idea was conceived in 2009 and realized with the help of a $25,000 grant from Veterans’ Affairs Canada. Once work got underway in 2012, “the fun began,” Gibbons said, “trying to find the original veterans’ names to coincide with their original lot numbers.

At times, it seemed like a giant jigsaw puzzle.” Bob Bailey, one of 12 veterans on hand for Saturday’s ceremony, still lives in the Sunglo Drive home he purchased with his wife, Lilla, in 1960. He wasn’t in the first wave of veterans who received bare lots, but rather bought the developed property with a $12,000 mortgage backed by Veterans Affairs Canada. Bailey, who served in the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War, said the new park will offer the community a much-needed space to gather. “This is great,” he said, adding new residents “will be more inclined to get together.” The park is named after Eric Selby, who, in 1952, won a lottery that gave him first pick of the lots being offered under the Veterans’ Land Act, which helped returning soldiers buy property and establish their lives.

A Penticton man found guilty of assault said he has only two regrets and neither of them are injuring his neighbour. Kevin Kenneth Woods was sentenced to 45 days, to be served on weekends, followed by a yearlong probation for assault with a weapon and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose. The charges stem from an altercation that took place on July 13, 2011 with his neighbour at 130 Skaha Place. “The pre-sentence report says I am supposed to be sorry. I am just not for those reasons,” said Woods. “I’m not sure what I did wrong. I didn’t want somebody to hurt me.” Despite being the one that assaulted Kenny Robertson with a foot-long piece of rebar in the hallway of the apartment build-

he got agitated when he heard Robertson banging on doors in the hallway, and opened his apartment door to see what was going on. Robertson testified he was intoxicated that day and was unsure of what sparked the assault. He said there was a scuffle and he fell on the knife while fighting on the ground with Woods and then was hit several times in the body with the rebar. Woods admitted he had a piece of rebar by the door because of recent disturbances in the apartment hallways that left him scared. He said he came out of his apartment with the rebar in his hand when Robertson came after him with a knife. In the pre-sentence report, Woods said the two regrets he had were opening his door in the first place, and that he should have just let Robertson hurt him, instead of pursuing him and then being charged himself. Judge Meg Shaw said she was left with “reasonable doubt” who exactly was in possession of a knife when Woods “aggressively” confronted Robertson. She also questioned why Woods decided to go after Robertson with the rebar when he could have simply re-

after hearing that Woods had no incentive to attend counselling for anger management or other issues if given jail time. She also took into account that Woods had abided by his bail conditions since he was charged and had not been in trouble since previous convictions for manslaughter (1996), fraud (2004) and uttering threats (2005). Woods also had several references from acquaintances that noted his calm disposition and willingness to help others. Defence counsel Andrew Vandersluys told the court that Woods collects a disability cheque and putting him behind bars would mean he would no longer receive that and put a hardship on his roommate. “Despite his record, he has maintained being a good citizen for a long period of time and I want him to continue that conduct of being a productive, meaningful member of the community,” said Shaw in her decision. Crown counsel Catherine Crockett had asked for jail time of three to six months because of his attitude towards the offence and agreed he needs some form of rehabilitation and counselling.

Crews wrap up work on waterfront walkway Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Pentictonites and early season visitors are once again able to take full advantage of the walkway along the shores of Lake Okanagan. “I like this new rubber sidewalk. It’s easier to walk on,” said Dona Guertin, who is also looking forward to the city planting new trees at the other end of the path. “It looks fresher and cleaner and it looks inviting.” Fences came down this week from around the first construction phase of the waterfront revitalization project, opening up the recycled rubber path and over-thewater walkway east of the Peach to visitors and residents alike. “I went for a walk about an hour ago. There is lots of people walking and everyone has a smile on their face. They seem pleased,” said acting Mayor Garry Litke. Vince Rabbitte also likes the look of the new path, and the feel of the new walkway material. “It looks really first class, there is lots of space for people to walk,” said Rabbitte. “I think the way they’ve done it is extremely good. It’s soft underneath here where people can walk” The contract tender to build the walkway required a two-phase construction timeline, with work suspended as

The NeW aNd iMproved pathway on the okanagan Lake waterfront is open to the public again in time for the summer months. The section had been closed during the work on the first phase, with construction on the other areas scheduled to begin in September.

of mid-June to ensure the walkway and beach access would not be im-

pacted during the busy summer months. “Reaching the com-

pletion of Phase 1 of the project is incredible, and builds excitement for

the full completion this fall,” said Litke. “We are still expecting walk-

way construction will be completed on time and on budget, which is great news for Penticton residents.” Litke said that the oversight committee charged with overseeing the budget met Friday morning. “We still have considerable contingency in place that we haven’t used yet,” he said. “Obviously the project is not finished yet, so it is too early to start crowing, but so far we are definitely on budget target.” Project elements that have been completed to date include a modified plaza of pavers around the Peach that shape the realigned walkway; recycled rubber walkway through the existing trees; concrete walkway over the water; and a section of the multi-use path has been built from the Peach to the crosswalk at the intersection

of Lakeshore Drive and Churchill Avenue. The goal is to give a similar facelift to the entire walkway from the Peach to the SS Sicamous, both enhancing the path and repairing infrastructure problems. But for now, the walkway has been reopened and the public is welcome to use the path again. Users should be mindful that some segments of the path are not yet complete. Path users are asked to stay out of the small taped-off segments, as the grassed areas need approximately a week to establish. Forms underneath the boardwalk will be removed in one month, and can be done from the water. The second phase of construction is scheduled to get underway Sept. 3, with completion slated for mid-November. For information, visit www. penticton.ca/waterfront.

The second-degree murder trial of Penticton man Keith Wiens has been stood down for three weeks. His trial in B.C. Supreme Court in Kelowna began May 30, but was unexpectedly halted on June 10. The reason for the delay can’t be published because it was discussed in court without the jury present. Jurors were recalled Monday to confirm their availability. While the trial will go on, it won’t resume now until July 8. It was originally scheduled to last 15 days. Wiens is accused in the August 2011 shooting death of common-law wife Lynn Kalmring at the home they shared in Penticton.

Political staff wage hikes hard to justify

D

o as we say, not as we do. That’s the message the B.C. Liberals are sending following the announcement that salaries for senior political staff in government ministries and Premier Christy Clark’s office are not just going up, but going up an obscene amount. B.C. Cabinet orders dated earlier this month provide for an 18 per cent wage increase for Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief of staff, to a maximum salary of $230,000. This from a premier who campaigned on fiscal responsibility to help families and gain some ground on an out-of-control deficit. This from a government that has continually told teachers, educational support staff, nurses and others in the health-care industry to tighten their belts because there is nothing in the kitty for wage increases. Most in the private sector have already tightened their belts to the max, not seeing any wage relief in years. Add to that the burden of increased taxes, a jump in utility rates and the rising cost of day-to-day living, and residents of B.C. are wondering how they’re going to get by. That’s when citizens need to have faith in government — all levels of government — to come to the rescue and pull the country, province or city out of trouble. But it’s getting harder to have faith in government officials. Whether it’s senators in Ottawa charging thousands of dollars in outlandish expenses from the public’s purse, or government officials in Victoria receiving unfathomable pay increases, it’sPENTICTON no wonder residents WESTERNare so apathetic when it comes to voting in a leader. Who can you trust? Voters sent the B.C. Liberals back to Victoria with a majority government, and a mandate to set the province on the road to economic recovery. Helping themselves before helping the many in the province who are suffering is not what the people had in mind.

No shortage of NDP problems After 34 NDP MLAs were sworn in to continue a stretch of opposition that will reach at least 16 years, leader Adrian Dix took a few questions about his future. The party’s provincial council will meet June 21 to set the terms of reference for a review of the party’s dismal election performance, Dix told reporters. He repeated that his performance won’t be spared, and ticked off some conventional wisdom about the NDP campaign. Dix mentioned the alleged lack of “negative” ads, the local campaigns (read candidates), the decreasing reliability of polls and, when pressed, his surprise decision to come out against the proposed twinning of the TransMountain oil pipeline. Like last week’s hysteria over a tiny leak in that pipeline, these are great sound bites for the short attention spans of the modern media. But they don’t explain much. This all-powerful NDP provincial council is a case in point. A glimpse into its inner workings was provided by a summary of an NDP policy development workshop called “Imagine Our Future” that was leaked by the B.C. Liberals in the final days of

Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views the campaign. The workshop took place in November 2010, coincidentally at the same provincial council meeting where the revolt against former leader Carole James tumbled into the open. While 13 caucus members were knifing their leader for reasons they still can’t or won’t articulate in public — a glaring problem in itself — the backroom policy brainstorm revealed a deeper malaise. Among the “dream tree” notions put forward in the workshop was “free” post-secondary tuition and public transit, along with raising wages and lowering fees for daycare. This isn’t a dream tree, it’s a money tree. Remember, this is the NDP’s

ruling body, not a high school “social justice” class or an Occupy Vancouver squat. Showing a glimmer of adult supervision, the workshop table on “equitable tax policy” even identified the problem. Its first recommendation: “Increase our economic and financial literacy to gain credibility.” The “public ownership” table really got radical. Scrap publicprivate partnerships, the basis of most government construction today. “Nationalize” independent power projects, in the Venezuelan style of state seizure of private assets. And perhaps most incredibly, tear up the trade agreement between Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. that harmonizes transport truck regulations and so forth. In the real world, the four western premiers met this week in Winnipeg. And the threeprovince project now called “New West Partnership” will continue to dismantle archaic inter-provincial barriers. Why would the NDP be secretly against that? Because it’s also a “labour mobility” agreement. This harkens back to a supposed golden age in Canada, when two corporate titans shared

the beer business, producing identical bland lager from identical factories in identical stubby bottles. Inter-provincial trade in these stubbies was strictly forbidden, requiring each province to have a big unionized brewery to make uniformly bad beer for the proletariat. This is the power of a monopoly union. And because of it, this was how governments tried to “create jobs.” It’s a bygone era to which many core NDP supporters stubbornly cling. This explains the party’s revival of a “job protection commissioner” for forestry. Which brings us to the proverbial root cause of the B.C. NDP’s woes. Its largest financial donor is the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, which donated $1.4 million to the party in the past eight years, nosing out the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the Hospital Employees’ Union. Former HEU and BCGEU presidents now sit in the NDP caucus, critics for health and “green” jobs respectively.

Resume discussions on national park We are responding to the Penticton Chamber of Commerce’s opposition to the motion, made by the South Okanagan and Kelowna chambers, asking the province to re-engage in national park reserve discussions. Experience shows the national park reserve will provide significant economic, job development and tourism benefits to the region — surely this goal is aligned with the chamber and its members. We believe that the Penticton chamber should be advocating for all their members, not just one. Across Canada, solutions are found to ensure that viable businesses, like HNZ, are not harmed when a national park is established. The choice is not between a national park and helicopter training — you

Exceptional service

I wish to thank Brian Bendig and Jeff Luesink of the Penticton Foundry for exceptional, above and beyond service. Without going into extensive details, I recently was in need of a unique and hard-tocome-by item. Even though the foundry did not have what was required, both Brian and Jeff were amazing at helping locate and assist with what I needed. A huge thank you to both of you and to the guys that helped out at the foundry for being there for me. Detailed service like this is rare in Penticton and you guys went beyond, and were exceptional. Thank you from all my heart for your generosity and kindness, it was immensely appreciated. Cyndy Bishop Penticton

Staff stand out

I know you are accustomed to getting letters from my husband, however, I would be very remiss in not recognizing some very dedicated people in our city. I just spent the worst two weeks of my life in the best place in the valley, (I know, kind of a contradiction of terms), that being the Penticton Regional Hospital. I don’t remember much of my first visit, except that I was very sick and the conditions the staff have to work in, in ER, are abysmal — actually throughout the entire hospital. The staff went way above and beyond in my case and I am sure they tend to others with the

These businesses have legal agreements that guarantee their operations within those parks. The director general of Parks Canada formally told HNZ, in writing on May 26, 2006, that they “will accommodate the flight training school activities as it currently operates.” To the detriment of businesses and communities in the region, HNZ has chosen to not share this letter with the public and continues to provide incorrect information, as they have to your chamber.

In reality, less than 10 per cent of HNZ’s helicopter landings occur in the national park concept area. Currently these landing sites are secured with a 10-year renewable provincial park use permit. On Feb. 27 2008, the director general confirmed that Parks Canada “would issue a permit to Canadian Helicopters (HNZ)”. HNZ was also encouraged in this letter to share this information with “chambers of commerce and others,” which clearly they have not done.

letters

Going an independent route to protest gas prices I read many letters to the editor about high gasoline prices and need to add my two cents worth. As I see it, we can either buy stocks in an oil company and then buy fuel only from that oil company as you wait for a year-end dividend, or we buy all of our fuel from a company that does not own a refinery. This would eliminate any profits to the “downstream” side of the major oil companies and they would then have to sell their product to independent fuel outlets. If we all did this then the fuel prices would be lowered quickly, as the major fuel producers need to be profitable on their retail market-

Rates out of line

In my letter to the editor printed in the May 31 Penticton Western News regarding the new Fortis rates, one line was altered which totally changed the gist of what I was saying. The line should have informed you that from March 2012 to September 2012 our average monthly usage was 877.5 kwh, and from September 2012 to March 2013 the monthly average was 2,124 kwh.

ing side and would lower prices to lure you back to their outlets. Twenty years ago I was a dealer for a large oil company in Edmonton and had a full and self-serve outlet (plus car wash and repair bays) that sold a very high volume of fuel for this oil company. All of the dealers in our group were at a meeting where an executive laid out the company plan to shut refinery capacity all across Canada so the refined product more closely matched their retail sales, thereby eliminating the independents’ competitive edge (efficiency). They would keep a smaller amount of product to sell to the independents

Using these averages it is easy to see that even in the summer the usage is above what Fortis has set tier one at, and the higher tier two rate will kick in. I said in my letter that I had written to BCUC, and last week I received a letter of reply from a “customer service specialist” at BCUC. This letter totally contradicts what Mr. Loski of Fortis said in his letter to the editor in the May 3 edi-

tion of the Western. Mr. Loski says in his letter that 75 per cent of his customers will see lower annual bills and only five per cent will see increases of more than 10 per cent. In the letter from the BCUC, the customer service specialist says that 95 per cent of customers will see a bill increase of 10 per cent or less. This contradiction makes me wonder which one of them is

at a higher price so they would not get in trouble under the combines act. Within two weeks of that meeting this oil company announced closure of two major refineries and they followed their plan as it was laid out to us. The results have been slowly coming in as they stated they would and their profits have increased as they expected. All of the major oil companies had the same plans at the same time. Did they plan this together? I purchase all of my fuel (in town and when travelling) from the independent supplier to make my statement, and wish that all of us would also do this. In Penticton there are

telling us the truth about these new rates. I have written back to the BCUC to inform them of this very apparent contradiction and that I wonder if one of the two parties is confused about what Fortis was actually given approval to do. The BCUC letter goes on to say that Fortis was directed to review and evaluate the rate’s impact on customers and that the BCUC will be compiling a document outlining the concerns of residents. The new conservation rate will be reviewed in early 2014, so if you are angry or concerned about these new

is quite a bit higher than the approximately 10 per cent Fortis and the BCUC are talking about and is absolutely outrageous. It’s clear by this increase that either Fortis doesn’t believe that our bills will average out over the coming year or they are anticipating some more big rate increases to come. I believed the new rate structure was wrong before this latest bill arrived and now it is obvious that we are going to be gouged by Fortis if we just sit back and allow it to happen.

rates you need to let Fortis and the BCUC know your concerns. If only a few people write letters, this new rate structure will most likely be approved as is. Finally, since my letter appeared in the Western, we have received our latest Fortis bill. The bill informs us that as of June 1, 2013 our monthly bill will reflect an equal payment amount increase of 33.3 per cent. Mr. Loski states in his letter, that while some customers are seeing higher bills in the winter, most will have lower bills averaged over the year. This increase that we have been notified of

only two outlets that fit this criteria, but when travelling it takes very little effort to locate and support the independent marketers. It also appears that most independents are the last to raise prices and the first to lower them, as well as offering an in-store discount in fuel coupons as well. Please join me in my protest of big oil. If we all do it we will be successful as we have the power of numbers. (The local dealer at the major oil company outlets is caught in the middle of this and has little to no control over pricing.)

Political payoff

When the Liberals won back in May, I made two predictions to my co-workers. The first prediction was that within 60 days, Christy Clark’s staff would all be voting themselves in a big fat raise. This prediction has come to pass. It sure didn’t take long for the porkos to hit the feeding trough; less than a month. I believe Clark’s chief of staff got a $35,000 raise, bumping her from about $195,000 to almost $230,000. Are you kidding me? $35,000 is 70 per cent of what I make in a year, and he got this as a raise. Let us see in the coming months if my second prediction comes true. What is my second prediction, you ask? I predict the Penticton Regional Hospital expansion will be dropped like a hot potato and put right back onto the back burner. This makes me sick to my stomach. On another note, this whole Mike Duffy affair really has ruffled my feathers. If anyone else were to take $90,000 from their employer, regardless of whether or not it was paid back, they would be arrested, charged, possibly thrown into the hoosegow, and have the stigma of a criminal record for life. What makes politicians any different? Are they above the law? Apparently so. I think it is about time that the working class rise up and make our opinions known in a loud and clear voice. Enough is enough. Time for a revolution, me thinks. Mark Billesberger Penticton

Ride promotes mental health Mark Brett Western News Staff

Mark Brett/Western News

MoNique GodBy prepares to hop on her bicycle for some training for Sunday’s Shoppers drug Mart Ride don’t Hide fundraiser and awareness event in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

This Sunday Monique Godby will be riding for her life. The Penticton woman will also be pedalling the 10-kilometre Ride Don’t Hide course along the KVR Trail for the millions of other Canadians who, like herself, struggle with mental illness. “Hiding it always makes things worse, and it took a long time for me but I’m not hiding any more,” she said recently while relaxing at Unity House. “So I smile and say: ‘This is who I am and I’m not going to hide anymore.’ Mental illness is part of my life, it is who I am but I’ve decided it’s not going to be my whole life.” The local office of the Canadian Mental Health Association is still taking registrations for the cycling event which is sponsored in large part this year by Shoppers Drug Mart. This year’s ride, which also has a 20-kilometre course, is targeting women and families impacted by mental illness. While the last few years have been a coming out of sorts for people with psychological issues, the journey is far from over. Helping cover the remaining distance as quickly as possible is what the ride is all about. “Everyday is a challenge when you have mental illness, it is some-

everyday is a challenge when you have mental illness, it is something we struggle with all the time and the stigma that is attached to it. — Monique Godby

thing we struggle with all the time and the stigma that is attached to it,” said Godby. “It is a matter of setting priorities, and the important thing for me and everyone is to get out there and help others. Whenever I notice a situation where I can help I’m going to get out there and do what I can.” She admitted some days are tough just to get out of bed, but knowing there is support out there for her makes it easier to cope. “I focus on the positive and not the stigma,” she added. Dennis Tottenham is the executive director of the South Okanagan Similkameen branch of the association, who sees daily the difficulties people continue to face. “A lot of them don’t know about the services, or the services are not

available, or because of the stigma they don’t come forward and so continue to suffer in silence,” he said. “Often people are blamed for having a mental illness, that somehow it’s their fault and they deserve it.” Compounding the problem is there are many single-parent families, often mothers and children, and the pressures sometimes stretch coping mechanisms to the breaking point. “That can include anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder and self-harming activities such as cutting and anorexia and bulimia,” said Tottenham “Then, when you throw in things like cyber-bullying and all the challenges of the Internet, it can really be overwhelming if you don’t get help or know where to find it.” One of the goals of the ride is to help raise awareness and let people know there is help available. Tottenham is hoping for about 75100 riders this Sunday. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. at the KVR Middle School with the ride starting at 9:15. Registration is $35 and kids under 14 can ride for free. Registration includes a rider shirt, entertainment and a barbecue. There will be a number of prizes including one for the highest pledge given out afterwards For more information call 250493-8999 or email cmha_sos@ shaw.ca.

Changes brewing for winery menus Joe Fries Western News Staff

Winery restaurants in the South Okanagan scored a win this month in their bid to expand their drink menus to include spirits and beer. Most winery restaurants are licensed only to sell alcohol that’s produced on-site. In recent months, however, both Tinhorn Creek Vineyards and Hester Creek Estate Winery near Oliver have asked the Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen to support their bid to add beer and hard liquor to their menu. “Times change. Golfers like beer,” Robin Openshaw, vice-president of corporate development at Hester Creek, told the RDOS board. RDOS support is needed to obtain the necessary approvals from both the Agricultural Land Commission and the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. However, RDOS staff has opposed the changes, which would essentially turn winery restaurants into full commercial operations, contrary to both zoning bylaws and the intent of the Agricultural Land Reserve on which they’re located. But the compromise suggested by Allan Pat-

ton, RDOS director for rural Oliver, appears to be gaining traction. Patton, a staunch defender of agriculture, suggested the board agree that winery restaurants be granted permission to sell only B.C. spirits and beer. He pitched his idea to the ALC in March and restated his case at the RDOS board meeting. “Instead of going the whole way and allowing these restaurants to be just like anything else that competes with restaurants in commercial zones in towns and stuff… we’re going with an expanded licence that still restricts them, and still has a relationship with agricultural land, where they’re supporting not only wines, but also B.C.-grown-andproduced beers and spirits,” he explained. “We have no ability to restrict a winery from having a restaurant on the ALC…. That’s provincial legislation: If a winery wants a restaurant, they get it whether we like it or not. The only thing we can do is deal with the details of what kind of licence they’re allowed to have, that kind of thing.” The ALC, from which the RDOS asked for clarification on the issue earlier this year, wrote in a letter to the board in May that it “is supportive, in prin-

ciple,” of the expanded drink menus at winery restaurants. However, the ALC noted that such a policy would be in conflict with provincial liquor laws. It pledged, however, to “consult more widely with

stakeholders on this matter,” and encouraged wineries to continue to apply on a case-by-case basis. Patton said the letter illustrates the need for wineries to lobby the LCLB for broader legislative changes.

Fund set up for victim Western News Staff

A trust fund has been set up help the 62-year-old victim of an explosion and fire in Olalla that happened just over a week ago. There are indications Randie Walter, who was living in a motorhome on the property that was destroyed by the fire, may be facing as much as six months in hospital. He received first and third degree burns to about 60 per cent of his body from what is believed to have been an exploding propane tank. Walter was initially taken to Penticton Regional Hospital and later transferred by air ambulance to the burn unit at Vancouver General Hospital. Several other family members, including his older brother Robbie Kilborn who was slightly injured in the incident, also live on the property. They are all disabled and not capable of helping their injured sibling. Although the house was not damaged, a total of seven vehicles were destroyed. All of the victim’s possessions were in the motorhome at the time of the fire. Donations can be made at any branch of Valley First using the trust fund account number 933945-201.

The RDOS board agreed to approve Hester Creek’s non-farm use application to the ALC, but noted it supports only the sale of B.C.-made alcohol. The board granted a similar approval for Tinhorn Creek in February.

A longtime Okanagan company is getting a makeover, starting with some new faces at the helm. Okanagan Waste Removal is now Appleton Waste Services, under the ownership of Rock Appleton and his son David. The company began operations 26 years ago, and was purchased in 1991 by Ulf Hasselbach and Janet Groome. But last month, the company changed hands for a third time, gaining its new name in the process. “We saw a niche down here. Rock has lived here for years, and I have been looking to move back to B.C. so I got together with my dad,” said David, who is in the process of moving his family from Edmonton. “I am third generation in the business. Rock’s father-in-law, my mother’s father, was in the business back in the ‘60s with BFI.” Rock said he had already been considering possibilities after he left Waste Services Inc., one of the largest players in the waste removal sector, including Hasselbach’s company. “I was looking at this opportunity two years ago. It took about 10 days and we ended up owning it,” said Rock. “Our heads are still kind of spinning.” Having worked for them, the Appletons admit that competing with the big companies who hold the majority of contracts in the Summerland to Osoyoos region they plan to offer services in will be a challenge. “We’re familiar with the industry. We’re now a local company. We still have the Summerland location that we are working out of, in addition to Okanagan Falls,” said Rock, adding that they plan to continue Okanagan Waste’s history of customer service. “We certainly are service-oriented and can provide very responsive service and a fair, economical competitive price. We don’t have the overhead that the big companies do,” said Rock, adding that being small, with just a handful of employees, makes it easier for them to be flexible. “I’ve been managing for years, but I’ve never been afraid to go out and drive. I know all the equipment and so does my son. We’re small, we’re not a corporate entity, we don’t sit in the office barking orders, we go out and do it.” They also hope to clean up the image of the waste removal industry, with the purchase of a new truck sporting a wrap-around decal featuring an Okanagan vista. Those same decals will also be on some of their containers as well. “A big thing for us is image,” said David, adding that they are in the process of getting existing equipment refurbished, and waiting for a brand-new frontend lift truck to arrive. And though they are thinking of adding organic waste pickup to their list, Rock said their general target markets hasn’t changed. “Just regular businesses. Moms and pops, and the Staples of the world. The local grocery stores, liquor stores, they all have those containers in the back,” said Rock. “We are the local guys now,” added David. “For 20 years I think people have been asking for a local option, especially to the south. Now they’ve got an option.”

Osoyoos Indian Band pulls plug on smart meters Joe Fries Western News Staff

Citing “science-based evidence,” the Osoyoos Indian Band announced Thursday it would ban the installation of smart meters at 700 homes and businesses on reserve land. “Having been presented with science-based evidence, the band council and I are convinced that Fortis’ proposed wireless smart meters in

meshed-grid networks have the potential to harm our children and our environment,” Chief Clarence Louie said in a press release. “No scientist on the planet has been able to verify the safety of these extremely dangerous devices that emit microwave radiation 24/7 and which cannot be turned off.” The press release does not specify the science-based evidence upon which the council based its decision.

FortisBC has applied to the B.C. Utilities Commissions to install the devices, which it contends emit only tiny bursts of electromagnetic radiation below limits set by Health Canada. The BCUC is expected to rule later this year on the application. FortisBC spokesperson Neal Pobran said without that approval, it’s premature to speculate how the company will respond to the OIB’s move.

“We’re definitely going to work with all concerned customers if we get approval, and hopefully we can get a resolution through dialogue,” he said. “It’s a bit early in the game, because we don’t even have a project to begin with, so we can’t really speculate if we’re even going to be going out there and putting on these meters.” Pobran said the company isn’t

contemplating an opt-out option for individual customers, and isn’t sure which evidence the OIB has referred. “There’s no real scientific or health reason to be concerned with the advanced meters,” Pobran said. The smart meters proposed by FortisBC are designed to wirelessly relay usage information to a neighbourhood hub, which would then transmit the information to headquarters.

Region divided over economic strategy Joe Fries Western News Staff

Months of workshops and discussion about a regional economic development strategy have ended with a $50,000 budget and no agreement on how to spend it. Directors of the Regional District of Okan-

agan-Similkameen had been exploring the feasibility of such a unified strategy, but couldn’t reach consensus on what such a plan should look like, only that they were tired of talking about it. “We’re just spinning our wheels,” Tom Siddon, the director for Okanagan Falls-Kaleden, said fol-

lowing further discussion at the RDOS board meeting. “There’s no point in talking about this anymore if we’re not going to do anything about it.” So the $50,000 that was budgeted for economic development this year will instead remain available for one-off proj-

ects or a great idea that hasn’t happened yet. “If somebody came in with a brilliant proposal that was region-wide or whatever, then we could consider some portion of that money being available,” Siddon said. The board’s discussion was prompted by an RDOS staff request to deal with the matter. Options presented included doing nothing, giving money to non-profits that promote economic development or hiring a consultant to suggest a way forward. Osoyoos Mayor Stu Wells was the first of several directors to shoot down a plan to pay for further study. “I don’t want to see any of my share of the money spent on consultants,” he said. Wells urged fellow directors to instead be patient. “Don’t think because you’ve got $10 in your pocket you’ve got to spend the damn thing,” he said. West Bench Director Michael Brydon suggested the RDOS hire grad

students who could study the area’s economy on the cheap, because the matter requires a fresh look. “One of the issues we see in the Okanagan is we’re using (the assumption that) economic development equals tourism, and for many years I’ve been looking at this data, it’s clear that tourism’s a relatively minor player in our economic engine,” Brydon said. “It’s well below manufacturing, for example, and no one ever says we need a manufacturing strategy, but yet it employs more people.” Rural Oliver Director Allan Patton noted the RDOS already funds economic development through its financial support of agencies like the Okanagan Film Commission, and development of trails that attract tourists. Regional district CAO Bill Newell said development of a region-wide economic strategy is complicated further by the fact that some member municipalities and areas already fund economic development work through outside partners.

School district approves work Geothermal work and a mechanical upgrade at Skaha Lake Middle School are the top items on the school district’s summertime maintenance list. The Okanagan Skaha School District has a $1.2-million annual facilities grant from the B.C. government for its summer work plan. It’s expected that will include tying in Skaha Lake Middle School to the geothermal heating system installed last year at nearby Princess Margaret Secondary School. Other top priorities this summer include: electrical upgrades at Giant’s Head and Columbia Elementaries; roofing repairs at Carmi Elementary and other sites; gym floor refinish at Summerland Secondary; exterior improvements at ConnectEd building; and parking lot and access work at Giant’s Head About two dozen items are on the to-do list. Most of the work will be put out to tender.

Mark Brett/Western News

IN the cards — Mark hatten of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, prepares to play a card during action in the crowded auditorium of the Penticton trade and convention centre during the annual Peach city Bridge tournament. the event is canada’s largest regional competition, bringing in over 1,000 players, and wrapped up on Monday.

Penticton scores with wine bloggers Steve Kidd Western News Staff

All the votes are tallied and the results are in: Penticton has set the standard to beat for the Wine Bloggers Conference. “Because most of the bloggers had never been to Canada, or the Okanagan, and they had very little experience with B.C. wine, well, I hate to use the term blown away, but that is what is happening now,” said local organizer Allison Markin. “Their expectations were fairly moderate

and when they got here they were just incredibly impressed with the region, the scenery, the food and the wine.” After polling the conference attendees, Zephyr Adventures said the sixth annual Wine Bloggers Conference, hosted earlier this month in Penticton, was the best so far. Though the conference was locally organized, Zephyr owns the rights to it, along with the beer bloggers conference, the food bloggers conference, the fitness bloggers conference and others. “The conference

scored a 4.13 on our 1-5 scale in which four equals very good while five equals outstanding,” reads the release from Zephyr. “The first conference in 2008 in Sonoma scored 4.12 while the 2010 conference in Walla Walla scored 4.11.” One of the highest rated events at the 2013 WBC was the opening reception at See Ya Later Ranch, scoring 4.81. “Having them come out and that be their first impression of the Okanagan, with that spectacular view and great wine, did a lot to help our score,” said Markin. The Saturday breakfast in Gyro Park, she continued, was another inspiration. “No other conference has done a sponsored

breakfast. I wondered how many people would show up, because they had been out late the night before,” said Markin, who was surprised by the enthusiastic response. “The five restaurants and the coffee station and our juice station just about all ran out of food.” The compact nature of Penticton lent itself well to the breakfast concept, according to Markin, serving as a starting point for the bloggers to explore the farmers’ and community markets and other places in the city. “Quite often the conference spends a lot of time in the hotels. We kind of hesitate a bit about taking people out of the hotel too much, because they do have a

lot of content and a lot of sessions to absorb,” said Markin. “Having them come out of the hotel and go to receptions in vineyards, out seeing the landscape and getting to know the region outside was something that worked out very well.” Having received such a distinctive score from attendees goes beyond wine bloggers or that particular conference. Markin said that it’s kudos that any organization looking at bringing in a conference of any kind can make use of. “We can say that we had one of the best food and wine conferences and this is why you should come and bring your business here,” said Markin. It may be a year or two for the full effects of the conference to be fully known. But Markin said some of the WBC feedback has already been used by some of the organizations to put into future bids, including ones she is working on. “It’s not us saying we were the best, it’s the people who actually voted to come here, experienced it, that’s their opinion,” she said. “We could not, in any way, pay for that kind of advertising for Penticton.”

Local songstress to represent B.C. Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

It was only six years ago that Saige Carlson can recall not even being able to carry a tune. Now she is off to Halifax to represent B.C. in a classical voice competition. “I didn’t think I would be very good at it, but I just loved singing,” said Carlson, who is an 18-yearold soprano in her sixth year of voice study with Lynne Leydier in Penticton. “The first year I went to provincials was really cool and I started to get more interested in it and singing eventually became a part of me. I sing all the time and everyone is always telling me to shut up.” Carlson will be representing B.C. at the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations convention from July 3 to 6. Of those she will be competing against, almost all of the singers are currently in university-level musical studies. Carlson is a multi-faceted singer, receiving provincial awards in Senior Classical Voice and Senior Vocal Variety. She has performed with Soundstage Productions as an

I am excited to watch them and meet the judges, it will be a really great experience for me,” said Carlson. The weekend will also be a learning one for Carlson, who will participate in workshops, trade shows and master classes. There

is one adjudicator in the competition Carlson is especially keen on meeting, Isabel Bayrakdarian. “She is an internationally known opera singer and one of my personal favourites. My mom got me a CD of hers a couple of years ago and I just listen to it over and over again. I just lover her voice so much,” said Carlson, who admitted being slightly nervous to sing in front of her idol. “I just hope to get through my program without having a nervous breakdown, but I am pretty sure I will be able to handle it.” To help pay some of the costs she will incur to go to Halifax, Carlson is hosting a fundraising concert on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in the Penticton Lakeside Resort in Salon D. Accompanying her is Dennis Norland and director Lynne Leydier. Carlson will be performing some of the selections she will sing in her program at Halifax including many main stays of opera. Tickets to the event are $10 for adults and $5 for 12 and under. Coffee, tea and cookies will be served.

award winning writer/performer at Shatford Western News Staff

There is not much funny about death, but for award-winning writer/performer Ann Randolph, she has transformed pain into humour. Mining her grief for hilarity she wrote the critically acclaimed solo show, Loveland, which she will be performing on Friday in Penticton at the Shatford Centre. The impetus for the show was the year preceding Randolph’s father’s death. Continuously flying between Los Angeles and Loveland, Ohio, Randolph thought every time she boarded the plane it’d be the last time she’d see her father. Loveland was written in flight as a way to deal with the anguish. “I thought the grief would overtake me,” she said. “So I explored every aspect of what I

thought would happen if I let myself lose it and I found the humour along the way.” In Loveland, Randolph takes the audience on an unforgettable cross-country flight that is hilarious and deeply human. Randolph embodies multiple characters, including heroine Frannie Potts, an out of control, sexually charged misfit overwhelmed by grief. Facing the loss of the greatest love of her life, she stumbles from outrageous confrontation and awkward confusion to a glimpse of the mystery, tragedy and beauty that unites us all. Randolph’s past productions have examined social issues running the gamut from homelessness to mental illness. Mel Brooks and the late Anne Bancroft produced her solo show, Squeeze Box, Randolph’s story about working the

graveyard shift in a homeless shelter. Squeeze Box ran off-Broadway and garnered many awards including LA Weekly’s Best Solo Show and the Ovation Award for Best Solo Performer. In conjunction with her show, Randolph will be leading a mini writing workshop immediately following the performance. Also, the following day, Randolph will lead a two-day workshop for the Okanagan School of the Arts. In addition to being a performer, she tours the country teaching regularly at art centres helping people write their stories. The Friday performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $20 at the Shatford Centre. To register for the workshop visit www.osarts.com, email info@shatfordcentre.com or call 250-770-7669.

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

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

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

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

Vanishing bees threaten food supply

Robert Handfield

Nature Wise as possible causes, and while there is some evidence that they are contributing to the problem, more recent studies indicate that the major factor is the use of a certain class of pesticides called neonicotinoids. These chemicals are used to coat the seeds of many crops including corn, wheat and soy and are found in many home gardening products. Recently published research has shown that the chemicals are absorbed by the plants that grow from the seeds and contaminate the pollen and nectar that the bees are gathering in their rounds. In the bees, the chemicals act as a nerve agent and disrupt their homing ability so they have trouble finding their way back to the hive. Recently the European Union banned the use of neonicotinoids on crops that would be used by bees, and many scientists are arguing for the same ban in Canada and the U.S. The manufacturer of these chemicals, German-based Bayer, argues that there is not yet enough evidence to blame their chemicals. However, with bees being essential for the production of at least 3040 per cent of our food supply it would seem prudent to err on the side of caution. A massive die-off of these critical pollinators would be a catastrophe for our food supply and severely impact many of the world’s

ecosystems. There is no known effective way to artificially pollinate all the food plants that depend on bees. It seems to me that if we ban these insecticides for a few years the downside is limited — lack of these pesticides might cut food production by a small amount; the upside is huge — we reverse the loss of bee populations and save the world’s food

supply. Sometimes we have to act before the data is absolutely conclusive, and in the case of our food supply it would seem that erring on the side of caution would be the prudent thing to do. The regular monthly meetings of the South Okanagan Naturalists’ Club are not held during June, July or August. However, we do continue with our Thursday bird-

ing trips and have additional outings two or three times a month to other locations. Check out our website www. southokanagannature. com to keep up with what’s happening.

What do cherries, kiwi fruit, cashews, watermelon, cucumbers, squash, apples, avocados and raspberries have in common, besides being edible? They all require bees for pollination to produce the food that we eat from these plants. Of course, these aren’t the only food plants that require pollination — the list is extensive, with the UN estimating that 70 of the world’s 100 most important food plants are dependent on cross-pollination by bees. Further, it is estimated that up to 90 per cent of wild plants require bees for pollination. For centuries farmers in Europe and North America never worried about their crops being pollinated — every spring the bees showed up on schedule, and for those areas where bees weren’t naturally plentiful, there were beekeepers who rented out their hives. However, that all began to change about 15 years ago in Europe and North America and more recently at numerous other localities around the world. Bees began disappearing — not just a few, but whole hives at one time. U.S. authorities estimate that about 31 per cent of all U.S. honey bee hives ceased functioning during the year 2012. This mass disappearance has been labelled Colony Collapse Disorder, but of course giving some phenomena a name doesn’t explain its cause or solve the problem. So what is going on with our bees? Why are seemingly healthy bees abandoning their hives? As with many things in nature, finding an answer is not always simple and often there are multiple factors working together to cause the problem. Climate warming, habitat loss and mites have all been suggested

A proposed 25-unit townhouse development in Okanagan Falls was turned down by the regional district due to concerns its access road would be too narrow. Kamloops-based MDD Developments wants to build homes on an undeveloped parcel off Cedar Street near Camilyn Court, but to do so needs bylaw amendments from the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen. Tom Siddon, the RDOS director for Okanagan FallsKaleden, told the board that neighbours were concerned the development’s proposed access road, at just six metres wide, would make it difficult for emergency vehicles and snow-removal equipment to access the site. Developer Doug Wittel told the board that six metres is plen-

Narrow road not suitable for OK Falls development ty in Kamloops. “That is more than ample for an entrance to any development,” he said, adding that although the road wouldn’t have sidewalks, its width would naturally slow down traffic. That assurance wasn’t enough to sway the board, which voted against approving the necessary bylaw amendments in a 4-4 vote. The developer can bring back an amended plan for reconsideration.

Four Pinnacles FC teams provincial bound Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Pinnacles FC is sending four teams to provincials in Prince George and North Vancouver. They advanced following the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League playoffs in Kamloops over the weekend. The under-14 boys team downed Vernon 4-1 in their first game, then defeated Kelowna United 3-1 in the final to advance. Like last year, the squad struggled in the regular season against Kelowna United but was able to win when it mattered most. “The kids are very ecstatic,” said coach Joe Afonso, after his group defeated a tough team. Scoring for Pinnacles FC were Reece Haberstock and Simon Snyman with two. Afonso stressed the win wouldn’t have happened without strong efforts from all players. “Defence played solid. My main midfield players were spectacular,” he said. “Everyone came together and actually, it wasn’t one of those games where you just won. I think we dominated.” Heading into provincials July 4 to 7 in Prince George, Afonso said the win has given his players confidence. Contributing to that are the parents who have proven to be big supporters. “The same parents always there,” said Afonso. “That gave the kids confidence in their play.” Now Afonso will give his players this week off to enjoy the wins, but also heal. Joining the under-14 boys at provin-

cials will be the under-18 squad coached by Mu- We definitely rali Venkatara- held our own. man.

They under-15 boys advanced while not having play downs since they are the only team in that age group. They will be joined by Carlos Mendonca’s under-16 team. That team advanced by shutting out Vernon 1-0 from a Taylor Corrie penalty kick goal. That win qualified the team for provincials as the Okanagan has two berths in that age group. Playing with a short bench since they are dealing with injuries, Mendonca’s group had to play an error-free game. Mendonca said his team made a couple of mistakes, which resulted in two goals. “We played a decent possession game,” he said. “In the second half we started to have a tough time because of the short bench. Everyone was tired. During the last few minutes we got a goal. The girls used so much energy against Vernon.” Mendonca said Natasha Reimer was fantastic in goal. The under-13 boys team started strong with a 6-0 win over Shuswap. Then they ran

into Kamloops, the best team in the league and lost 2-0. Coach Michael Barron wanted to see his team play hard and have fun and they did. “I was so proud of how they played,” said Barron. “They were excellent. We went down early in the game against Kamloops. After that, we had a lot of chances, could have tied it in the second half, just couldn’t put the ball in the net.” Pinnacles FC had one team in the A Cup, which was an under-15 boys squad. They lost both their games to the Kamloops Blaze 4-3 and 3-0. The Pinnacles were faced with the challenge of dealing with two injuries and one suspension. “We played fantastically well on the Saturday,” said coach Adam Vallis. Scoring came from Darian Johnson with two and Bjorn Boron. Vallis said a couple of bad calls against them resulted in goals and negatively impacted his players. “Guys came off feeling deflated and cheated,” he said. “It didn’t set them up well for next day. We were very tired. It was visible on their faces. We barely got out of their end in the first half.” With strong goalkeeping from Brady VanRyswyk, the Pinnacles only trailed 1-0 at the half. They couldn’t contain the Blaze who scored two early goals. Vallis said he was very proud of his players. “We definitely held our own,” he said. “I would say the future looks bright for PFC. We will come back stronger and as a better team.” The under-13 girls lost to Vernon 4-0, while the under-14 girls defeated Kelowna 4-3 then lost to Vernon 1-0. Under-15 girls edged Kelowna 3-2 then lost to Vernon 6-1.

On May 17, the KVR Lakers under-12 girls basketball team scored 17 points to defeat the Thunderbirds in Kelowna Minor Basketball League play. Three Lakers each netted four points. Fast forward to June 7 and the Lakers defeated the same team 33-19 to win the league championship. “Given that it was our first year in the league, the league championship was a pleasant surprise,” said Lakers coach Chris Terris. “The girls competed so well and improved so much. The last game was a culmination of all their hard work.” Moving the ball well and pushing the pace created easy scoring chances for the Lakers. Kayley Davies was a factor offensively leading with 11 points and was chosen as the most valuable player. “Kayley has come so far,” said Terris. “She led the team with her agressiveness, which created a ton of opportunities for both herself and her teammates.” Olivia Devito finished with eight points, while Tegan Elder scored six points and collected nine rebounds. She was chosen as the top defensive player. Jennifer Hayman finished with four points and six rebounds and was named the Hustle Player. Sarah Wood finished with four points. Terris added that Elder and Hayman are strong defenders, while Emma Terris and Liev Elder did a great job of moving the ball up court. Devito has become a consistent jump shooter, which Terris said is remarkable for her age. Katie Foreman and Wood both improved by leaps and bounds and contributed in ways that don’t always show up on the scoresheet. Terris said he had no idea how his players would compete. Playing in the KMBL was a chance for a keen group of players to gain a better understanding of basketball against higher calibre players. Terris said the experience was paramount. “In our middle school league, the games are very loose,” he said. “No one runs an offence and there is no pressing. We don’t even keep track of fouls or the score.” The KMBL proved to be a huge learning curve for his players. He said as rewarding as it was to win, as a coach he is more focused on the players’ skill development, game sense, their compete level and most importantly, trying to instill a love of the game. “Their skills and understanding progressed far faster than I anticipated,” he said.

IN BRIEF Bantam Tigers advance to finals

Two victories in Kamloops have put the South Okanagan Minor Baseball Association bantam Tigers in the finals, hosted by Rutland June 22 and 23. The Tigers opened their weekend in Kamloops against Vernon 2 with a 6-5 win. The Tigers received strong pitching from Nathaniel Woods. Their second game was against West Kelowna, winning 7-3. After allowing West Kelowna to take an early lead, the Tigers began getting hits and were able to make up runs. The defence also kicked in allowing them to hold up West Kelowna and forcing a tie in the sixth inning. The Tigers turned it up in the last inning starting with Paul Jacyna. He picked up a single then stole second base. Connor Graham, who came in to pitch and was strong, hit a double to score Jacyna. West Kelowna then walked a player and Robbie McKinnon hit a ball to the outfield for an RBI double. This week, the Tigers are working hard, with batting a priority, to be ready for this weekend. The Tigers coaches said the players are hitting the ball, but they need to get the ball into the openings in the field. “I need to be able to count on every player to execute well,” said Tigers coach Dan Harvey.

BCHL increases schedule and adds Lazarowich as director Western News Staff

After reducing its schedule from 60 games to 56, the British Columbia Hockey League has re-upped it to a 58-game schedule in 2013-14. That was among the changes the league made during its annual general meeting held in Richmond. Teams will play two games that count in the standings at the Bauer BCHL Showcase Sept. 6 to 8 in Chilliwack, then play 28 home and away dates to complete the regular season.

Penticton Vees coachGM Fred Harbinson, who couldn’t be reached for comment, said back in January of 2012 that he wasn’t in favor of reducing the schedule for the junior A circuit. “You don’t want to make it like a Mickey Mouse league,” he said. No playoff structure has been agreed upon for the upcoming campaign. Teams are being asked to submit their ideas with a format to be announced before the showcase. The league has also changed its media policy

league’s officiating program as associate director of officiating to head director Derek Adams. Lazarowich monitored and provided mentorship to young officials last season during the NHL lockout. The BCHL has reached an equipment deal with Bauer. With it, players will use the Bauer Supreme Team Stick. Failure to comply results in financial penalties to the club. These will escalate with repeat offences. For protective gear, teams are allowed to use re-

surrounding the Jan. 10 roster deadline. For any given transaction, teams can release information to the media as soon as they have made the league office aware that all players involved have been notified. The league’s referees received a boost as NHL linesman Brad Lazarowich has signed on as the

maining new equipment from previous seasons with the understanding that future orders will be made through Bauer. When it comes to the season, the Vees will start on Sept. 6 against the Victoria Grizzlies during the showcase. The Canadian Junior Hockey League made some announcements following its annual general meeting in late May. They implemented new policies. Among them are are sanctions for payment of players, a “not-in-

good-standing” list for players refusing to report to a team after a CJHL Player Transfer Agreement, and new import rules including

players with Canadian citizenship shall not be considered an import. Import numbers will be reduced from seven to six after 2013-14.

The 2013 BC High School Track and Field championship provided a gauge for the Pen High Lakers. Coach Geoff Waterman saw first-hand how his athletes stacked up against strong competition at Langley McLeod Athletic Park May 31 to June 1. “I think the kids performed really well,” said Waterman. “They represented the school and Penticton in a very good way. Supporting each other and having a lot of fun.” In the 4x100 boys relay, Rob Simmerling, Lucas Hooper, Kyle Hooper and Justin Schenk clocked in at just under 47 seconds. The girls 4x400, consisting of Max Chapman, Holly Perrier, Hanna Lalonde and Courtney Milligan finished in 4:34. The boys 4x400 ran in three minutes, 46 seconds. Individually, Kyle Hopper was 12th in the high jump, jumping a 175 centimetres.

Linda It is with both sadness and bittersweet joy that we announce that on June 10th, 2013, Linda (Loewen) Danallanko passed away into the presence of her Lord and Saviour. Born on April 6, 1942, in Calgary, Alberta, Linda and her family moved to Abbotsford in 1946, where she spent her formative years. Following her graduation from high school, Linda’s education included two years at Bethel Bible Institute, Registered Nursing training at Vancouver General Hospital, and a Public Health Certificate from University of British Columbia School of Nursing. Her nursing career included time in Vancouver at a home for dysfunctional children, a brief employment in Merritt, a two-year volunteer stint in Haiti with the Mennonite Central Committee, and a long career in Public Health nursing in Summerland and Penticton, from which she retired in 2007. It was also in Penticton that Linda met and married Ed Danallanko, the love of her life, with whom she celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary in March of this year. She was a vibrant and energetic part of her large and loving family and all were blessed by her kind words and generous ways. Following her internment at Lakeview Cemetery, a Memorial Service of remembrance and Celebration will be held on Saturday, June 22nd at 1:30 pm at the First Baptist Church in Penticton – a place where Linda was actively involved in worship and leadership. All are welcome.

On June 14, 2013 after a struggle with a rare degenerative brain disease, Peter passed away at age 79. Peter was predeceased by his loving wife Theresia and two older brothers. The family moved from Calgary to Penticton in 1968 where they bought the Kreekside Motel and worked hard to make it a successful business. Peter loved to be involved in the community and joined Rotary, The Motel Association, the Chamber of Commerce, and the German Club where he was known for his outgoing personality. After retirement he became a Director at the Valley First Credit Union for several years. Peter’s passions were family, golfing, he was a long-time member of Twin Lakes Golf Course, fishing and outdoor curling. Peter was thought of as a big, strong man with a boisterous voice and laugh but had a very soft, kind and generous heart. He was a proud and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Peter’s final years were difficult due to his progressive disease, but his will to live remained strong. He will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his two daughters Linda (Dave) Finner, Kelly (Ray) Parks and son Peter Almasch Jr.; seven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; sister-inlaws Anna and Sali Almasch, Martha (Don) Taylor and Kati (Seigi) Offenberger; and numerous nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the special people at Haven Hill’s Peach Wing, who took the time to get to know Peter, joked with him and treated him with dignity. Prayers will be on Friday June 21 at 7:00pm and a Mass of Christian Burial will be on Saturday, June 22, at 11:00am both held at St. Ann’s Church (1296 Main Street, Penticton). Reception and Interment to follow. For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Ann’s Church. Condolences may be shared by visiting www.everdenrust.com
