Another Kelowna packinghouse to close STAFF REPORTER

Efforts to consolidate operations of the B.C. Tree Fruits Cooperative in the north and south ends of the valley are moving along with the sale of the Vaughan Avenue packinghouse in Kelowna last week. The adjacent Clement Avenue facility was sold this spring, with that deal to be completed later this summer, leaving only a cold storage facility and administration and sales offices in Kelowna. This year’s cherries and Bartlett pears will still be packed at the Vaughn Avenue plant, but after that the facility will close, says B.C. Tree Fruit Cooperative chief executive officer Alan Tyabji.


APPLES ready for shipment from the soon to be closed Vaughan Avenue fruit packinghouse in Kelowna.

It’s all part of the downsizing that has become necessary because of reduced apple production in B.C. The property sales will help grower-members of the co-op to get better returns for their fruit, as the operation becomes more lean and efficient, he explained. Scattered hailstorms throughout the valley in the past few weeks have reduced the estimated crop at this year’s harvest by 20,000 bins, (around 18 million pounds) of apples, says Tyabji. That accelerated the planned shutdown of the Vaughan Avenue plant. The remaining fruit can be run through the plants in Oliver, Osoyoos and Winfield, where a $7.5 million upgrade is to be complete for this year’s harvest. The matter of staffing is still being



discussed with the union, he said. “We all care for the welfare of the employees affected by the declining tonnage,” he added, as details of the future plans for the co-op packing plants were not available. But, Tyabji said the co-op is also committed to achieving the best possible returns for grower-members. The downsizing and closure of the Kelowna facilities is part of the co-op’s long-term strategy, and is based on a reduced crop volume. The BCTFC was formed from the four remaining major co-ops in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys in the past few years. It packs, markets, stores and distributes apples, pears, cherries, peaches, apricots, prune plums and blueberries.

A woman who is no stranger to the law is alleged to have used a syringe to stab a bus driver Saturday, without provocation, leading to an hourlong manhunt. The 31-year-old suspect, who comes from the Kelowna area and is wellknown to local RCMP, boarded a bus near Banks Road, saying she was heading for Orchard Park Mall, and wound up stabbing the driver when he reached the bus shelter on Main Street near Hoskins Road. The alleged assault occurred at 10:10 a.m., after the other passengers left the bus. The assailant is described as nonchalantly approaching her victim before driving in the needle. “The driver sought immediate medical attention due to the risk of possible transmission of infectious disease,” said Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP spokesman during a press briefing Tuesday morning. The Canada Day long weekend proved a busy one for RCMP who dealt with more than 230 files on the holiday alone.

Premier dangles more health care funding Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Premier Christy Clark says her government plans to inject $2.3 billion of new money into the provincial health care system over the next three years and a “significant” amount will come here. Clark, seeking the Westside-Kelowna seat in the upcoming July 10 byelection, told the Capital News her government has spent more than $1 billion here on health infrastructure so far in this area and despite an election campaign promise last month to cut spending in order to balance B.C.’s budget and start paying down the province’s debt, health care-related spending here will not dry up. “The strategy is to create a health care hub in the Interior and that means continuing to invest here,” said Clark. The province has already spent hundreds of millions on projects at KGH such as the new six-storey Centennial Tower, the medical school clinical campus building and parkade, the new laboratory and clinical services building and new heart and surgical centre which is currently under construction at KGH. Clark said with a growing population here, and a large seniors population, the need for more health care facilities is important. Clark said while she is quickly getting up to speed on a host of local issues, she also recognizes the need for some sort of a health care centre in Westbank. But what it will look like is still unclear. While the original Interior Health plan for an urgent care centre in Westbank has been all but scraped, Clark said she is interested in seeing IH pursue a similar facility to one established a few years ago in Parksville on Vancouver Island. There local doctors and other health-related businesses have teamed up with the Vancouver Island regional health authority and established a centre that houses several different health care services under one roof. “I’m excited about that,” said Clark, adding she feels if such a facility is built, it should centralize services and be located in the downtown Westbank area to not only be accessible but also act as an anchor for the area. And she added, it should be built in a way that it can grow in the future as the population of the Westside grows. “I’d really like to see a centralization of services,” said the premier. Recently, West Kelowna council received a report from its consultant that showed the numbers are just not there

to support an urgent care facility on the west side of the lake at this time. As a result, council announced it was abandoning it’s plan to pursue such an urgent care facility. But it too has said it likes the Parksville model. Interior Health had already downgraded the Westside urgent health care centre plan, which was once at the top of its priority list. Meanwhile, the land purchased for the project at Elliott and Butt Roads in Westbank sits vacant. The Agricultural Land Commission had agreed to allow half the site to be used for the proposed health care centre. Asked about how the province would pay for the more health care infrastructure spending, Clark said her plans to develop a liquified natural gas industry in the north-east part of the province will be a boon to the province’s finances once the industry is up and running. In its recent budget—which the NDP Opposition insists is not balanced but Clark insists is—future, but as of yet unrealized, revenues from both LNG and the sale of surplus provincial assets will be used to generate budget surpluses to pay for such projects, balance future budgets and help pay off B.C.’s growing debt. The current proposed 2013-14 budget has a razor-thin $153 million estimated surplus. The Liberal leader is running in the Westside-Kelonwa byelection because she lost her Vancouver-Point Grey seat in the May 14 provincial election despite leading her party to a fourth consecutive majority government. She is trying to replace former Westside-Kelowna Liberal MLA Ben Stewart, who easily held the seat he first won for the party in the 2009 election. Last week Clark made her first byelection promise, vowing to find money to mitigate flooding threats on McDougal Creek on the Westside. She said when it was brought to her attention that the creek floods every year, she felt it would be wise to find the money to pay for mitigation efforts once and for all, rather than spending $200,000 to $300,000 every year to deal with the problem. So she said she asked the attorney general, whose ministry is responsible for flood response efforts, to find the estimated $500,000 needed for permanent flood mitigation measures along the creek. The money has not been found yet and work has not started, but the premier said she hopes the work can be complete by the end of the summer.

Tyabji a blast from the political past Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A face from Kelowna’s political past was back on the local hustings over the long weekend. Former Kelowna-Lake Country Liberal and Progressive Democratic Alliance MLA Judi Tyabji was in town to help Premier Christy Clark campaign for a seat in the B.C. Legislature. Clark is running against seven other candidates for the Westside-Kelowna seat vacated by Liberal Ben Stewart . Tyabji, first elected in a byelection here in 1988,

and returned in 1991 when her future husband, then-B.C. Liberal Party leader Gordon Wilson, lead the Liberals to surprise Opposition status, said she has known Clark for 30 years and wanted to help her campaign here. Despite leaving the B.C. Liberals in 1993 with Wilson after Wilson lost the leadership of the party to Gordon Campbell, Tyabji said she feels she has always been a Liberal. “I don’t believe I ever moved away.” But she did not feel comfortable in a party lead by Campbell, whose Liberals lost the 1996 election but went on to

win four consecutive majority governments, three under him and last month’s under his successor, Clark. Tyabji quit the Liberals to sit as a Progressive Democratic Alliance MLA with Wilson. It was news of their affair—which broke after Wilson appointed Tyabji his party’s house leader when he led the Liberals—that lead to his ouster by Campbell and his supporters. In the 1996 B.C. election won by the NDP, Tyabji lost her seat to her former brother-in-law John Weisbeck, who ran for Campbell’s Liberals.

Wilson won his seat but crossed the floor to take a cabinet post in the NDP government in 1999. Since leaving politics, Tyabji has hosted a television talk show on Vancouver Island, served as a municipal councillor in Powell River where she and Wilson live and heads a software development company. She said she does not miss the “political” side of a life in politics but does miss the job of being a political representative. Still, she says, she cannot see herself ever run-

lend a hand in helping her old friend Clark win a seat in the legislature. “I feel comfortable with Christy Clark (as premier),” said Tyabji, noting it was her husband, who hired Clark as a researcher for then-Liberal MLA Linda Reid when he led the party. Tyabji said she has known Clark since their days as young members of the Liberal party together and she praised Clark as someone who listens to people before making up her mind about an issue. “She’s a leader.” said Tyabji of Clark. “But she is also he someone who is open to be persuaded by other points of view, if you prove your case.” On the weekend, Tyabji, Wilson and Tyabji’s 25-year-old son Kaz were out door-knocking for the Clark campaign in the riding and talking to locals. Tyabji said she feels the Kelowna area is at a “crossroads” and thinks it would benefit from having the premier as its political representative in the legislature, just as it did in the days of W.A.C. Bennett and his son Bill, both of whom were former premiers and Kelowna-area MLAs. “Kelowna is at a point where it has a great opportunity to define itself,” said the former MLA. For Tyabji, now a grandmother and parttime sheep farmer, the upcoming byelection also has a personal connection. Members of her family still live in the riding and she said she enjoys coming back to visit.

Free concerts at Memorial Park

Wade Paterson


The District of West Kelowna hopes Music in the Park will build upon the success it enjoyed last summer. The free summer concert series begins this Friday from 6:45 to 9 p.m., and will run every Friday evening until Aug. 30 at Memorial Park, adjacent to Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre. Each event will feature a headline act, an opening performance and music by young local musicians. Genres throughout the summer will include country, pop, classical and more. West Kelowna recreation staff will also be in the park with activities for children. On Friday, “talented kid” Georgia Kemp will warm up the crowd before Cynthia Leigh-Ann takes the stage. Public House Band are this week’s headlining band. Last summer more than 3,000 people attended the concert series. An average of 430 people attended each week; Shawn Hook’s Aug. 24 performance brought out more than 600 people. In the coming weeks, West Kelowna council will look at ordering a new, portable stage for events like Music in the Park and Westside Daze as part of the Memorial Park Plan. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater said, if approved, the stage will likely be “on wheels, pre-wired and quite a bit more jazzed up.” For more information on Music in the Park, visit wpaterson Twitter: @PatersonWade

OC gears up for 50th birthday celebration As Okanagan College prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its start (the B.C. Vocational School opened its doors in September 1963), the institution is looking to bolster the ranks of already-honoured luminaries and contributors by acknowledging even more people—50 of them—who have contributed to the development of the college, or who have strengthened the connection between college and community (regional, provincial, national or global) through their efforts. They can include current and former employees and students, supporters, board members—almost anyone who has a connection with the college or OUC. Current employees are eligible but must be nominated by community members who are not in the employ of Okanagan College—OC employees can nominate fellow employees for the college’s annual Employee Excellence Awards. Nominees can’t include those who have already been honoured officially by Okanagan College. The college is inviting residents, former employees, friends and the general public to nominate someone they know (or have known of) for consideration. Posthumous nominations are accepted. For additional details, criteria and to access an online nomination form, go online www.okanagan. people. There is also a link there to a list of people who have already been honoured. The deadline for entries is Aug. 9, 2013. The list of nominees will be reviewed, and the additional 50 people for acknowledgement will be chosen by an ad hoc committee of current and former employees of Okanagan College and Okanagan University College. The names of those who will be acknowledged will be revealed Sept. 27 at a celebration of the 50th anniversary, to be held at the Kelowna campus.

Thief gets caught selling stolen goods from Kelowna home STAFF REPORTER

A 27-year-old Kelowna man is in custody facing the possibility of several charges after police responded to a break and enter in progress Friday night. Just before the dinner hour Friday evening, the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a break-in at a home in the 500-block of Okanagan Boulevard. A man in his mid-20s had apparently caught someone inside his home and was chasing him towards downtown Kelowna. “The caller lost sight of the suspect and a police service dog was unable to locate him,” said Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP. Later that evening, a man matching the description of the suspect was reported to police as he appeared to be selling what the caller suspected was stolen property near

the Queensway bus loop. Police responded and found him inside the Subway restaurant nearby. He is likely to be charged with break and enter, possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance when he appears in court today.


Speed traps on the Okanagan Connector and a road block on the highway entering downtown Kelowna helped RCMP reduce problems over the scorching Canada Day weekend. Friday evening the RCMP set up shop on the Okanagan Connector in effort to curb speeding and reduce accidents as the first big tourist influx hit the city—and the effort proved fruitful. “The highest observed speed was 191 km/h in a 110 km/h zone,” said Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP spokesperson.

Holocaust education award for local teacher A Kelowna teacher was one of two people to receive the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre’s Kron Sigal Awards for excellence in holocaust education at the centre’s annual general meeting last month. Gerry Chidiac, of Duchess Park Secondary School in Prince George, and Kayla Dominelli, of Springvalley Middle School in Kelowna, were both recognizded as proponents of combining historical lessons with project-based learning, empowering students to promote social justice and human rights awareness in their homes, schools, and communities. Dominelli attended Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies in 2009. Her Grade 9 English unit on the Holocaust includes novel and memoir exploration. The unit was described by one student as “completely life-altering.”

A total of 74 tickets were issued, including three for excessive speeding, which resulted in the vehicles being impounded for seven days. Excessive speeding carries fines from $368 to $483 and it is mandatory for police to impound the driver’s vehicle for a week. Several motorists were stopped more than once as they continued to fly through multiple speed traps and one man was charged with possession of a controlled substance and give a court date. Early the next morning, two Central Okanagan were busted with a variety of illicit drugs packaged for sale, presumably on local streets. At 1 a.m. on Satur-

day morning, police conducting the check-stop on Harvey Avenue at Water Street pulled over the driver of a black Chevy Cavalier who was unable to produce her driver’s licence. A search of the vehicle revealed 79 quarter-gram packages of meth, heroin, powder cocaine and crack cocaine as well as $175 cash and paraphernalia consistent with the trafficking of drugs. The woman,32, is from West Kelowna and she was riding with a 32-year-old man from Lake Country; both were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Helping students meet challenges Gary Bennett CONTRIBUTOR

The Rotary Club of Kelowna and The Rotary Club of Kelowna Foundation have recorded the best years ever for both in providing scholarships and bursaries to Kelowna’s youth. The scholarships handed out at high school graduation this year included: • Two $1,500 academic scholarships to Kelowna Secondary students. These funds help students offset their tuition fees for their post-secondary education. • Four $1,000 academic scholarships for Rutland Secondary students. The Rotary Club of Kelowna Foundation awarded these scholarships on behalf of the Morningside Rotary Club. • Thirty-nine $750 Strive Scholarships to students from Kelowna Secondary, Okanagan Mis-

sion, Rutland, and Central Secondary Schools. These scholarships are for students who have overcome significant personal challenges to complete their graduation and qualify for a post-secondary education.    Many of these students come from broken homes; some are single moms; all of them need a helping hand to improve their chances of gainful employment. Since initiating the program in 200607, 131 Strive Scholarships have been given out.   This year, at Central School, one of the Strive Scholarships was handed out by out by past recipient Drew Gowing-Hand.  You read about Drew last year. She was so grateful to The Rotary Club of Kelowna for receiving a Strive Scholarship last year that she decided to raise funds to give out a scholarship herself.  She did some busking at Kerry Park last summer


PAST recipient Drew Gowing-Hand gives out the Strive Scholarship to a Central School graduate. and donated the funds to the foundation. The total amount donated as a part of this campaign from Drew, her relatives, friends and community supporters was more than $750. The Rotary Club of Kelowna Foundation also supported School District 23’s Central School and Okanagan College by providing $7,000 in funding this year for textbooks for students in the Gateway to the Trades Program. These students come to Central School because they lack success in the regular school program. This joint effort is for Kelowna’s most at risk

teens. These students have incredible challenges; many have housing issues and substance abuse issues; some have probation issues. Many live on the streets; some are working at odd jobs just to survive.  If Rotary did not intervene in a positive way, the future cost to our society would be tremendous.  Central School, working with Okanagan College, have developed a program that has these students preparing for a future trade. After some initial time at Central School, these students attend Okanagan College where they are work for a brief time in each of the trades that the college offers.  When they find one that they like, they can later pursue an apprenticeship in that area.  All of us who have met these students attest to the fact that the change in these students is truly transformational. They develop a much more positive attitude about their future and are personally committed to changing their lives for the better. • $1,500 Scholarship—The Rotary Club of Kelowna Foundation provides this scholarship for a Gateway program graduate with financial need to take the Okanagan College’s Dual Credit Program to achieve an apprenticeship in the trades. • Eleven Encounters With Canada $100 Bursaries. These funds go to Kelowna Secondary students who attended the Encounters With Canada program in Ottawa. • One $5,000 bursary for an Okanagan College nursing program graduate. Gary Bennett is a member of the Kelowna Rotary Club.

Distractions divert our fragility


hen natural disasters such as the flooding in Alberta and elsewhere in the world strike with little warning, we are reminded of how fragile is human life—and all life—on this amazing planet. Our Earth is one planet, circling one of billions of suns. The slightest variation of temperature or any number of other conditions, and we would not be here. We may have different ideas of how this came to be. Yet that is not what is important. What is important is our responsibility, in the face of our fragility and the fragility of our precious planet, to serve the Spirit of Life, not the forces of destruction. To act from a place of gratitude and amazement, of compassion and tenderness. To challenge the careless destruction of human life and the balance of creation out of greed and ego, craving for power, ignorance and hatred. Anyone can hurt and destroy—that is certainly no measure of what it means to be a worthy hu-


Linda Horton man. If we are made in “the image of God,” it is in our ability to create and nurture, within the limitations of our finitude. How dare we humans harm others and claim that we are “serving God?” The only gods we are serving are the idols of self-righteousness, greed and power. Every religion on Earth calls us to compassion, calls us to awe, calls us to humility before a creation magnificent beyond our comprehension. “What does the Holy One require of you? To do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God,” the prophet Micah proclaimed millennia ago. Walking humbly with the spirit that set fire to billions of stars, yet cradles the sparrow in its “hands” means we acknowledge our own fra-

gility and limitations. No matter how inspired, all scriptures have come to us filtered through a limited human mind. No matter how elevated our moments of feeling embraced by a Holy Reality, our attempts to define that greater reality cannot begin to encompass it. Only poetry comes anywhere close because poetic language is open-ended and suggestive, embraces ambiguity, and can hint at something beyond itself. “The Tao that can be spoken is not the Eternal Tao,” says the Tao de Ching. Our true calling as followers of the Spirit of Life is not to spend our energy debating with one another over definitions, or whose limited and flawed understanding comes closest to what cannot be defined. It is certainly not in attempting to control or to kill one another using religion as an excuse for acting on our own prejudices. Our true calling is to “do justice and love mercy” and to choose humility over self-righteousness.

Tag along to Haiti for the shoe ride with Soles4Souls

While the last load of gently used shoes has left the Soles4Souls warehouse in Kelowna, now the good stuff happens and the public is invited to come along. From Oct. 20 to 24, Soles4Souls Canada founder Jim Belshaw wants to put together a group of Canadians to join him to visit many orphanages and community centers in Haiti to put shoes onto the feet of people who need them. Belshaw, a Kelowna businessman, says the purpose of this trip is to allow team members to experience firsthand how Soles4Souls is changing the world One Pair at a Time. “We will encounter rough terrain, rubble and debris along with Haitian culture,” he said. “The key for me is that we will be spending time playing and sharing hope with local Haitian children.” To learn more about the Haiti trip, please visit www.

Important to be a good neighbour


brazen theft from a Lower Mainland home is a reminder of how important it is to be neighbourly. This particular home belongs to an elderly woman who is now in a care home. While it didn’t contain a lot of valuable possessions, it was her home. Those who broke in took a number of items—including a Second World War Royal Westminster Regiment uniform—and all but destroyed the home. They stole furniture, an antique Bible, and anything they

thought they could turn into money. They shut the power off and stole a large quantity of copper wire. While the exact circumstances aren’t clear, a friend or family member was looking in on the property on occasion. The thieves clearly felt they had time to come in and do all that damage, and had no compunction about robbing an older person. It’s a good reminder to older people to cultivate good relationships with their neighbours. A

watchful neighbour can keep an eye on a property when people are away, or even when they are home. They can look out for warning signs of problems. Good neighbours can literally be lifesavers on occasion. While family members and friends can and often do look in on vacant properties and older people, if they don’t live nearby it is hard for them to react quickly when there is a problem. Most people welcome the chance to be eyes and ears for their neighbours. Most would

say it’s the least they can do, and hope that others will be as willing to help out when they get older. Relationships with neighbours can make it much easier for people to stay in their homes longer. When they do have to move, if the home remains vacant for a time, neighbours can keep a close eye on things and will ease many of the worries that can crop up. A good neighbour policy can be very worthwhile.

Terrorism attempt a reminder of why our freedoms are at risk


t the expense of our democratic freedoms, efforts to keep us safe from acts of terrorism continue to raise difficult questions about the need for security vs. the need to protect our privacy. That argument was reflected close to home on Canada Day after police apparently aborted an attempted terrorist attack on the B.C. Legislature, as pressure-cooker bombs similar to the recent Boston Marathon bombing were found planted to go off at the height of the July 1 public celebrations.

Premier Christy Clark told reporters Tuesday her suspicion is “they wanted to do as much damage as they possibly could. They want to take control of Barry our streets, our cities Gerding and our institutions.” The “they” Clark was referring to only appears at this point to be two Surrey residents arrested in Abbotsford Monday afternoon resulting from a surveillance operation coordinated by the RCMP, the Canadian Intelligence Service and the Canadian Border Services Agency. The initial charges against the


two people arrested indicate the pair were allegedly acting on their own “self-radicalized” journey to do something destructive. “We cannot let this change who we are. We will not let them win,” said Clark. But with each new camera increasingly following our every move in public, with the public surveillance capabilities of cellular and Internet traffic improved, we may not have lost our democratic freedoms either here in Canada or in the U.S., but they have been seriously compromised. Surveillance and espionage initiatives have increased dramatically under the cover of the need to prevent more terrorist actions. Nothing is

simple anymore. Cameras are everywhere, and there are so many more ways now to get your personal information into databanks to be potentially used for who knows what. In the U.S., a debate about public privacy has opened up with the revelations of high-tech security initiatives fessed up by whistleblower Edward Snowdon. While those initiatives are used to help thwart potential terrorist attacks, the information gathering potential from such sophisticated monitoring technology raises questions of potential abuse if put in the wrong politically motivated hands. Ultimately, what is going on in Egypt right now is the most effective

weapon against terrorism, illustrating that relying on deference to the religion of Islam as the solution to government is really no solution. In reality, that solution has little to do with creating jobs and opportunity for a country’s citizens, picking up the garbage, providing power and clean running water, the things that real governments have to tackle every day. For Middle East country political parties to mature beyond rhetoric and start to develop policy platforms remains the best answer to subsiding the terrorist threat. Hopefully, we will not have sacrificed our freedoms beyond the point of no return if and when that point is ever reached.

Kelowna’s last public post office moving one step closer to its eventual demise To the editor: Canada Post, on June 27, 2013, put up a message on the doors of the last CUPW (Canadian Union of Postal Workers) staffed retail outlet on Banks Road. In a nutshell, they were announcing the “proposed” move of this service to the industrial area of Gaston Road. The notice asked for customer feedback to this change and also placed this notice in the private mail boxes of almost 300 customers that currently rent this service. Canada Post explains that this newer “smaller retail model” will save money, which they claim

See MAY us on 11,411 12, 13 Castanet

they are short of at the moment. This new model would make our public post office little more than a hole in a wall, with one clerk and longer wait times in line. Not exactly a revenue-generating idea. The closing and shrinking of offices is all part of Canada Post’s strategy to reduce costs and encourage, even force, people to go to private sector outlets. As a rule, these postal counters are not as reliable. They tend to come and go when operators are not happy with Canada Post or not making enough money. Also, it is difficult for these outlets to be as accountable as a public post office.

Instead of downsizing, downgrading and closing public post offices, Canada Post could expand and leverage its retail network like Australia Post is doing. It could also add new revenue-generating services such as postal banking, which has proved to be money-making in other countries. Canada Post almost never decides to keep a post office open after giving notice. The corporation does not seem interested in what the public has to say—the public own Canada Post. Canada Post has failed to tell the public that there are only 30 days in which to respond to this

“proposal.” Furthermore the corporation doesn’t even notify the affected community unless that customer enters the outlet or rents a box, a flagrant disregard of the Canadian Postal Charter. This is effectively the swan song of Kelowna’s only public post office. Write your MP, call Canada Post and let them know that we, as taxpayers, will not stand by quietly while they destroy the truly last bastion of Canada’s history. Dawn Klappe. president, Kelowna CUPW

Don’t let one dictate to 1500+ dog owners To the editor: To a dog owner, the Gellatly Park dog beach was one of the highlights of a good weekend, allowing the dog to play in the water, play with other dogs, play with kids, play with me, play with you, responsibly, safely, in a nice local area. All we asked for was a fence at the top so, just in case, you know, that un-

thinkable thing that nobody wants to admit, a dog doesn’t realize that the top of the hill is a 50 km/h, 5,000 lb piece of metal that can’t stop in time and may end the life of the innocent and loved little life. The dogs do not know this, but the owners do. Yes, dogs have lives too. Lets let them live. If, in the future, Bou-

cherie is upgraded to have that beautiful walking path along the side of the road like WFN has been nice enough to provide, can we have that go all the way to the new beautiful upgraded part near the wharf? Can we put a fence on the edge of that path to prevent walkers, joggers, cyclists and yes, cars, from getting in the way of the dogs who are

having the time of their lives on the beach? The one out of 1,523 joggers or walkers who is afraid of dogs should not force the 1,522 others to just give up on the dog park completely due to its incredibly small size. Right now the dog park has gone from approximately 40 feet wide by 250 feet long, to about 5 ft by 250 ft, less in some

places, more in others. I call that a sliver where I come from. Again, there is a better way. Take the high road, District of West Kelowna, please. Don’t give in to the loudest voice, let the majority tell you what is really wanted, like a real democracy should do. Tyler Fuller, West Kelowna

and buildings. Most of us do not use the facilities and do not begrudge paying our share for the sake of all members of our community, however, in fairness, where are the rights and privileges for dog owners? Please help me understand? ••• I imagine this letter will go into the “ignored” file but I believe I have every right to ask and be told how I can enjoy the fact that I have a pet and would like to enjoy my time with him on the beach! The unfairness of this makes me angry. Yet, I will still receive my tax bill every year and still be expected to pay it in full. My question is simple—I would like to fully understand my rights and how I can continue to be a participating resident in West Kelowna with equal rights. I would like to be on a beach with grass


enjoy a swim with my pet but I have no place to go unless I wade through the mud in the now puny area that is assigned to dogs. When my dog swims without me, I have to sit in the mud and mess so that I can watch him. I would not want to go in the water that is assigned to us, I have to go home with my dog very dirty. As well, in the leashfree dog parks in Westbank the bark mulch gives the dogs slivers which in many cases can become infectious. If a child were to injure themselves, there would be an uproar. I, constantly read complaints from people that very strongly state that “if we want a dog park, we should pay for it”. By way of education to those people, I would point out the following: We are paying for the parks, we are paying for the hockey rinks; we are paying for the skate parks and many other recreational sites

To the editor: I am a long-time resident and now a senior of West Kelowna and I am also a dog owner—now, I have been officially discriminated against and I am being treated like a second class citizen. West Kelowna is building a fence ($13,500 of my tax money) to cut most of the Gellatly dog beach off so only a very small area is left to allow our dogs to go off-leash swimming. I have repeatedly stumbled over sticks sticking out of the ground, there is no place to lounge around and spend any time longer that it takes to exercise and cool off my dog at the beach because of the dirt and mud. Next on the Rotary Park beach: I have observed one morning an employee cleaning the grass from goose droppings and my tax money pays for that, but I can not have my dog go in the water from the steps.

Keeping our country’s history alive A ll year, I look forward to the summer months so I can get back home and reconnect with as many of you as I can. Canada Day is a good jumping off point and it was good to see so many of you out and about with your families at the various celebrations taking place in our riding of Kelowna-Lake Country. Kelowna Canada Day Orchestra performed one of their best concerts in their 19-year history followed by the fireworks display which capped off a wonderful day of celebration and sunshine. And it was great to see Ben Lee and his team members be recognized for starting Kelowna Folkfest 40 years ago.  Folkfest is as popular as ever and continues to provide all of us an opportunity to learn more about the various cultures in our community through great food and the arts.   In great Canadian fashion, a little bit of something for everyone.


Ron Cannan A big thanks has to go the hundreds of volunteers who worked hard throughout the year to make July 1 such a great day for the rest of us. July 1 also marked the beginning of Canadian History Week. Canadian History Week runs until July 7 and is an excellent opportunity to keep the spirit of Canada Day alive and learn about our country’s history from coast to coast to coast. Many of us can agree that the older we grow, the more important it is that we learn as much as we can about our history and the different cultures and people who have made us the great nation we are today. Much like our own

family histories, we can only keep history alive if we pass it on to our young people, which I try to do with my two grandsons. Yet, studies have shown that Canadians lack knowledge of our history and wish they knew more. With this in mind, our government has formally made July 1 to 7 Canada History Week, to provide Canadians of all ages, from coast to coast to coast an opportunity to get actively involved in learning about our country’s history. To make that easier, our government, through the efforts of Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore and his team, has been undertaking a series of initiatives to showcase our history and our people. Minister Moore has announced the creation of the Canada History Fund,

which will connect youth to their history through the first ever Government of Canada History Awards, honouring outstanding students and teachers who show an interest in celebrating Canadian history. Teachers can have such a profound impact on students and I’m sure we all have memories of our school days and favourite teachers. Schooled in Edmonton, I remember a fun class called Western Canadian History. Two teachers, Mr. Malcolm and Mr. McLean, collaborated to form Mal-Mac Productions and taught the class in a fun and interactive way—something I still remember today, over 35 years later. The government will also partner with the Historica-Dominion Institute to create two new Heritage Minutes per year be-

tween now and Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. Additionally, existing programs at Canadian Heritage will be strengthened to improve access to funding for local organizations that wish to promote Canadian history in their communities, including local museums and youth groups. More information is available at www.pch. These initiatives are a great way to become better acquainted with Canada’s history, but it will need every one of us to do our part.  Whether recounting the stories that built our nation or our communities, by sharing them, we can tell the whole story of Canada and keep our history alive. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country.

The word victims is to “preserve the seems to be “out there.” evidence” by keeping a Many people consultdiary. ing with me about their I have written about injury claims confidentthis advice before, datly tell me that they are aling back to my second T:5.694” ready keeping a diary. column with the Capital Some bring printouts

of their diaries with them. I regularly find, when reviewing the diary entries, that a lot of diligent work has been done. There are often daily entries. Keeping the diary has become a daily chore; yet another thing on the injured victim’s plate.






TRADE IN FOR THE ULTIMATE TRADE UP. 2013 Dodge Journey R/T shown.§

There is frustration about having to write down, day after day after day, that there is pain in this area of the body and that area of the body. It doesn’t take long before changes in symptoms become less and less dramatic, with chronic symptoms setting in. The diary entries become very repetitive. Notations are also often made for the two to three times per week that trips are made to the massage therapist, physiotherapist, or chiropractor for treatment. Most people think, when making those repetitive entries, that the diary will be evidence to prove that the daily, nagging pain is continuing, and that treatment sessions have occurred. They envision that they will hand it to an ICBC adjuster or, if necessary, a judge, and say “See, I really do have ongoing chronic pain. I really have attended all those treatments.” It’s the sad truth about


Paul Hergott chronic pain. It’s not visible. It doesn’t show up on x-rays or other scans. Keeping a diary feels like a way to add objective evidence to help achieve fair compensation. I have reviewed my archive of six and a half years of weekly columns.  I see that I have never before explained the actual use of a diary and the kinds of entries that are useful to make. My advice is to stop making those repetitive, daily entries. It is a useless exercise that will serve only to focus you even more on the chronic, ongoing drudgery of pain and thereby lower your mood even further. Except in very rare circumstances, your diary

notes will not be admissible in court. Except to the extent the diary notes can be used by ICBC’s lawyers to hurt you, they will never see the light of day. By way of very short explanation, your own diary entries are not admissible because you will be there to testify, to tell your story yourself, and the law doesn’t allow you to use your own notes to bolster the credibility of what you tell the court. If your diary gets into the hands of the ICBC lawyers, they will use it to pull out only those very specific entries that could be used to hurt you, admissible because those are “admissions against interest.”   The reason why I advise, very strongly, to keep a diary, is simply to assist you with refreshing your memory so that you will be able to share your story as accurately, vividly and compellingly as possible.

ENTERTAINMENT ARMIE HAMMER (left) and Johnny Depp star in The Lone Ranger.



Principals take pay cuts to make The Lone Ranger


ne would think that the team behind The Pirates of the Carribbean would get a definitive “greenlight” if they wanted to re-ignite another franchise. However, Johnny Depp, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski had the brakes put on The Lone Ranger back in 2011 by Walt Disney Pictures due to budget concerns. After the trio decided to take pay cuts and the budget was reworked, the production went ahead last year. True to form, Depp does not play the title character but rather his partner Tonto, an American Indian spirit warrior who recounts the tale of John Reid, a lawyer and ex-Texas Ranger who becomes the masked vigilante on a quest to find his brother’s killers. Along the way, The Lone Ranger is recruited by Tonto to bring justice to those responsible for destroying his tribe’s villages. Armie Hammer (who played the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network) is the man in the


Rick Davis mask and Helena Bonham Carter (The King’s Speech, Les Misérables) plays Red Harrington, a brothel madam who assists them. In the world of animation, Disney and DreamWorks have always been the leaders, but when Despicable Me came out three years ago, the balance of power shifted significantly. Illumination Entertainment (distributed by Universal Pictures) was formed in 2007 and in 2010, its modestly budgeted (for an animated film) Despicable Me became a $540 million worldwide hit. Illumination’s next two movies, Hop & Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax were also money-makers and it also worked with Universal to create Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, a hugely successful 3-D ride at Universal Stu-

dios Florida. Despicable Me 2 is now out and it looks like Illumination has done it again with Steve Carell returning as the voice of the villainous(?) Gru. This time, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. However, the plot is secondary to the antics of Gru, his adopted daughters and, of course, his Minions. As well as Carell, there are the voice talents of Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Benjamin Bratt, Ken Jeong, Steve Coogan and co-directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud as the voices of the Minions. Illumination is not sitting on its laurels. A spinoff starring Gru’s Minions is already in the works and is set for release next year. Also in the works with director Tim Burton is a stop-motion animated film based upon The Addams Family cartoons by Charles Addams and an adaptation of Ricky Gervais’ Flanimals books into a feature film. Rick Davis is the GM of Landmark Cinemas 8 in West Kelowna.

CHRIS BOTTI returns to perform at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery on July 12. CONTRIBUTED

Venue seals trumpeter’s return Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

By his own admission, not everyone can afford to share a stage with jazz trumpeter Chris Botti. Having played at the White House, for the President of the United States, not every venue is going to strike a chord for him either. Thankfully, Mission Hill Family Estate Winery has such an intoxicating ambiance—fabulous sound at the outdoor amphitheatre and an unmatched view of Okanagan Lake—it earned Kelowna an encore performance the moment Botti learned he could return for a visit July 12. “I’m not very good at multi-tasking. I’m good at one thing—being out there playing for people—and I’m good with that,” he said as he explained how a packed touring schedule takes him from Italy to New York with little room for smaller cities like this one. Some 300 days a year, Botti can be found work-

ing a talent honed through years playing with Paul Simon, in Sting’s band and with some of the world’s preeminent musical talents as his own band leader. “My bucket list is really, really short,” he admits. (Though, sharing a stage with Peter Gabriel is still a treat he looks forward to one day.) By and large, what gets Botti out of bed to play every day is the chance to woo an audience, craft sounds he didn’t know where possible and push his own boundaries as far as the world will let him take the four-and-a-half feet of brass beauty that rests in his hands each day. “You can’t take multiple days off. It’s much more like being a ballet dancer; it’s kind of that non-stop training and stretching so it looks like you’re not doing anything,” he explained. “It’s all to do with breath, stomach muscles, the jaw and the jaw muscles. It’s not like a piano in that way.”

Just like Sting, he’s an ardent yoga practitioner and just like Barbara Streisand, with whom he recently had the pleasure of working, he has a taste for perfection. “I just found her to be so musical and so allowing of the conductor to take control and not have any distance,” he said, when asked what it was like to work with a woman so revered by fans and musicians alike. Botti too deserves the kind of deference and recognition reserved for master craftsmen and women. Coming to fame in his 40s, the musician spent many years working his way up through the industry, living in New York hovels in order to perform—and he appreciates what he’s earned. “When I was able to pay the landlord that first month in New York, I literally thought I had won an Academy Award,” he said. Had he known the uphill battle he faced, he doubts he would have made it so far; but naiv-

ety payed him a favour. Today he can only think of two places he really hasn’t played—India and Vietnam—and he’s working on securing dates in both countries. Such are the spoils for those who are willing to risk it all to make sophisticated music reach the masses; it’s a road he worries young musicians aren’t willing to travel these days. “There’s no risk. A lot of it’s lip-synched,” he said. “I kind of wish people would just let go.” With pop stars tied to ear monitors and enough technological intervention to bleed the musicality right out of the average pop show, he says he’s drawn to those who are willing to actually go on stage and just play, mistakes and all.

Manicures & Pedicures

This Man of Steel worth ogling BEHIND THE SCREEN

Susan Steen Chicago and Plato, Illinois under the code name “August Frost”—a badly kept secret as the Chicago Tribune wrote a full article about the filming long before it was completed. The release of this film in June 2013 marks the 75th anniversary of Superman, who first appeared in comics. Canadian Joe Shuster and American Jerry Siegel were the creative force who produced the character of Superman in 1933. Man of Steel is produced and directed by Zack Snyder whose credits include The Dark Knight and Watchmen. This film is not nearly as dark and has a message of hope. One great line by Lois Lane before she knows who she’s dealing with is: “Be careful with those, they’re heavy.” Go see this. Yes, pay the price of 3D as this one’s worth it. It’s the most excitement at a movie you’ll see in a while. I give Man of Steel five super reels —it was four but the fifth is for Henry Cavill—even as Clark Kent he’s sexy.


While on a tour of the White House, Capitol policeman and wanna be Secret Service Agent Cale (Channing Tatum of Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street fame) and his daughter are caught in the crossfire as armed paramilitary invaders try to take down the Presidential home. Sound familiar? It should, as it’s close in theme and action to Olympus has Fallen. So close, in fact, that it’s like watching the same film. This one features Jamie Foxx as President Sawyer, Maggie Gyllenhall as Finerty and James Woods as Walker. Gyllenhall was stiff and Woods was good as the aging Security Chief, but Foxx was so un-Presidential that it actually affected the film—unless he was scripted to be the comic relief, casting here was really off. Written by James Vanderbilt, cousin of Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper (her son and noted CNN host), this Vanderbilt is a descendant of one of the oldest families in America; the most note-worthy being Cornelius Vanderbilt, the American industrialist whose empire was built on railways and shipping, who had 13 children— likely why so many cousins are still running around today. Yes, it is action escapism, but so unbelievable—we have to won-

der just how many times a person can get kicked in the ribs and still be able to fight off his attackers? Or how many times a military helicopter can be shot at before someone decides that the attack should be called off. Not sure just how White House Down will fare in the box office. With a production budget of $150 million (probably just for the guns and ammunition) and with serious competition from Man of Steel, World War Z and the family film Monsters University this could be an dud. Did I like it? It was OK, and if you haven’t seen Olympus Has Fallen, then it’s a summer action flick. But it’s no Independence Day, so it’s not the blockbuster that we might have expected. If you don’t immediately need a shoot-’emup, take-down show, then I’d wait for The Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, Red 2 or the sci-fi, Alysium. But on a hot day an air conditioned movie theatre is not a bad place. Just don’t expect Oscar-winning acting. And

they do mention the War of 1812 and how the British kicked their butts and burned the White House—a fun moment in our history, and so nice of them to acknowledge it. I give White House Down two reels.

OK, so I thought to myself (odd expression, who else am I thinking to?) do we really need another Superman movie? Well, if you like science fiction, if you like more action and destruction than you’ve seen in a long time, if you like Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Amy Adams, and if you like two hours of watching hunky Henry Cavill, then Hell Yes, we need another Superman movie! Sure, we all know the story, the planet Krypton is self-destructing, and Jor-El (Russell Crowe) wants to save the race by sending his son to a far distant planet in the hopes he survives. So Kal-El (Henry Cavill, the first non-American to play Superman) shows up on a small town farm and is raised by the Kents (Diane Lane and Kevin Costner). Amy Adams as Lois Lane, the curious reporter, seeks the story that changes everything despite the reluctance of her publisher (Lawrence Fishburn). Adams has previous Superman connections as she played Jodi Melville in Smallville. Well about then, the evil General Zod (Michael Shannon) turns up and the destruction begins—we aren’t in Smallville anymore. This is the first Superman film that doesn’t feature Jimmy Olsen, and this one was filmed in

THE MARQUEE EVENTS at track meets are generally the sprints and the Jack Brow Track and Field meet in Kelowna is no different. This race featured girls in the 100 metre sprint as they begin their dash to the finish line.

Ready, set… It was another successful weekend at the Apple Bowl as the annual Jack Brow Track and Field meet took place under sweltering conditions.

Action began at the Apple Bowl on Friday night and continued all weekend long as the action, as well as the weather, heated up. The Okanagan Athlet-

ics Club has posted full results from the event online at and the Capital News sent freelance photographer Doug Farrow out to catch some of the action.

Game comes together for Osland Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

When Kelowna golfer Megan Osland returned home after her second year of NCAA golf at San Jose State, her game was not in top form. She had completed a long NCAA season and ended at the NCAA Div. 1 national championships where things just weren’t clicking. But after some tweaks with her swing coach back in Kelowna, Osland got her game back in order just in time for last weekend’s B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship in Pitt Meadows. That’s where things started to come together and the birdies started dropping at the Pitt Meadows Golf Course as Osland carded rounds of 71-76-71-75 to finish at three under par

for the tournament in a tie for fifth place. “I was having some swing issues and hitting the ball left so when I got home I spent some time with my swing coach, Sean Richardson at the Harvest, and he really helped me figure things out,” said Osland, back in Kelowna after the weekend. “During the tournament I just stayed focussed on each shot and each round. I would have liked to win the tournament but considering the conditions (heavy rain, standing water on course) I was satisfied with my finish.” Osland’s performance included a birdie on her last hole of the tournament and while she didn’t know it at the time, when she rolled in the 20 footer for birdie to close the event, it brought her into


STUDENT OF THE MONTH TALIA “I'm pretty happy with Student 1st. At first I will admit that as a mother I was apprehensive about my daughter going door to door selling chocolates but the fact that the youth are paired up and the team leader is close by them at all times has given me assurance and I respect that. My daughter has grown as a person tremendously since selling with Student 1st. She's not as shy, her grades have gone up, she's learned how to handle money, she's motivated to make as many sales as she can to win the monthly prizes. As a parent, these developed skills makes me feel great. What's even greater is she's not sitting on the couch watching T.V. or playing video games day after day, There's not many Summer jobs available for youth 12-15 years old. I highly recommend Student 1st Chocolates as a part-time job for your preteen/teen, they make their own spending money, and they learn sales skills.” Jessica (Talias moms) Please support our kids 1-855-(KID WORK) when you see them in the community.

a tie for fifth and also a tie for the second best score of a B.C. player. That meant she would join Christine Wong of Richmond and Jennifer Yang of Coquitlam on Team B.C. which will play at the Royal Cup Canadian Amateur Championships July 23 to 26 in Quebec. “I am really excited and proud to be representing B.C. at the Canadian women’s amateur,” she said. “Now I will be starting to prepare for the Canadian amateur both mentally and physically. This year is only Os-

land’s second year playing in the women’s amateur division after moving up from the junior ranks and she also made Team B.C. last year. Two other Kelowna area golfers also took part in the B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship in Pitt Meadows as Jenn Woods and Kylie Jack of West Kelowna both took part. Woods had rounds of 80-86-81 while Jack shot 87-85-88.

Birker and teammate take U-18 Sand Series 2 It was a hot weekend of volleyball down at Kelowna City Park on the Canada Day long weekend as the Sand Series 2 beach volleyball tournament took place under great conditions. Quinci Birker and her partner Thana Fayad of Vancouver Island won the U-18 division of the tournament on Saturday at city park. In the gold medal match of the U-18 division, Birker and Fayad hit the beach against Fayad’s older sister Shimen as well as Kaylie Loewan of Penticton. In the end if was the younger sister, and Kelowna’s Birker who came out on top, winning their fourth tournament since partnering up. The pair will now head to Kamloops for the Baden Cup (the start of Team BC indoor court volleyball) next week. In August they will partner up on the beach once again to prepare for beach provincials and nationals that will take place in Vancouver.

Strata rules can’t override provincial legislation


ollowing the recent B.C. election, I was contacted by an upset owner who was ordered by the strata manager to remove an election sign from her property because it violated the bylaws. Faced with the prospect of a fine up to $200 the offending sign was removed, however, the owner wanted to know if that was allowed. In fact, it was the council and strata manager who had violated the owner’s rights in violation of the B.C. Elections Act and the Canada Elections Act. The wording in each act is similar and applies to all elections at all levels of government. The provincial legislation states: “228.1 (1) A landlord or person acting on a landlord’s behalf must not prohibit a tenant from displaying election advertising posters on the premises to which the tenant’s tenancy agreement relates. “(2) A strata corporation or any agent of a strata corporation must not prohibit the owner or tenant of a strata unit from displaying election advertising posters on the premises of his or her unit. “(3) Despite subsec-


Gunnar Forsstrom tions (1) and (2), a landlord, a person, a strata corporation or an agent referred to in that subsection may: “(a) set reasonable conditions relating to the size or type of election advertising posters that may be displayed on the premises, and “(b) prohibit the display of election advertising posters in common areas of the building in which the premises are found.” In this case the owner lived in a bare land strata and had the sign posted on her lawn. Owners should check the strata plan to ensure that the sign is indeed located on private property and not common property. Many owners in a bare land strata are not aware of their property boundaries, often assuming that they extend to the roadway. This is not always the case.

When a bare land plan is registered with the Land Titles Office it only shows an outline of the property and not the building. To ensure compliance and avoid aggravation check the strata plan before posting an election sign. Similarly, residents in an apartment style strata are allowed to display election signs on private property as long as they comply with any rules or bylaws that contain certain allowable restrictions. While rules and bylaws are paramount to the good governance of a strata corporation, they cannot override other legislation such as the Elections Act, Human Rights Code and the Personal Information Protection Act to name just a few.

CHRISTINA BERNADETTE SHENNAN (NEE CALLIHOO) May 29, 1924 - 2013 June 27, 2013 Mom died peacefully in her sleep at Hospice House in Kelowna, BC on Thursday, June 27th. She had cancer and had recently turned 89. She had a good sense of humour and told me: “I want you to make sure I’m really gone when I die, I don’t want any surprises.” Mom was a lady of faith and was looking forward to her next journey. She grew up on the Michel Reserve north west of Edmonton and married dad, William Shennan, June 20, 1946. They had one son, me, Wesley Shennan, and later, one grandson, Waylon Shennan, (his partner, Rejoice Apedoe). Mom had one sister Elizabeth Gerlat, (her partner, Jim Kam); two nieces and two nephews; and four grand nephews and three grand nieces. Gramma, Lottie Callihoo; Grampa, Solomon Callihoo; a brother Charlie and sister Camilla in their preteens; and dad, died before her. Mom made her money as a seamstress, working for various businesses in Edmonton and Kelowna, but her heart was in playing guitar and piano and doing a little singing. Mostly, she accompanied old time fiddlers at competitions throughout BC, but did travel as far as Manitoba. She told me she was accompanist at the Kamloops Old Time Fiddlers contest for 20 years in a row; won many awards; and I know there are a host of accomplished fiddlers today who remember mom when they were youngsters. Mom also played blue grass and liked to attend the Saturday jams in Peachland. A celebration of life was held for mom at Holiday Park Resort July 4, 2013. The Old Time Fiddlers played. You can make a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation if you choose.

HOFT, BRUNO Tragically Bruno Hoft passed away unexpectedly on June 26, 2013. As a Christian man he now finds himself in the hands of the Lord. He was 77 years old at the time of his passing. He leaves behind his wife of 52 years of marriage Erika, and his two sons Garry and Grant. Bruno was hard working and dedicated his entire life, which allows him to rest in peace knowing that he left those behind well provided and cared for. He was born in what is today Poland, but is considered of German descent. He immigrated to Canada in 1954 with his immediate family, parents and siblings, to start a new life. He owned and operated a window and door repair business which was still going until the very day of his passing. He loved to be busy and active—the main reason he was still working well beyond required retirement age. Over the years in the service industry, he established himself as reliable and dedicated; therefore, he was still called upon by those that got to know or work with him. We know he would like to thank all those that called upon him, as he enjoyed being able to help where he could, doing what he loved. He will be missed and lovingly remembered forever. A private gathering will be held to honour his wishes. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting, 250-860-7077.

HENDERSON, ANDREW OSWALD 1925 ~ 2013 Andrew (Andy) Oswald Henderson passed away on June 29, 2013 at Kelowna General Hospital at the age of 88 years. Andy will be lovingly remembered by: daughter Sheona Zacher, grandsons Kyle Zacher, Ian Zacher (Dailynn Christensen), son Cam Henderson (Karen), grandson, Jason Koops (Kim Boucher), great-grandsons, Richard, Jayden, Zackary, granddaughter, Carolyn Bigg (Rob) and long time close friend Gene Pressacco. Andy was predeceased by his loving wife of 37 years Carolyn, and good friend Norma Richardson. Andy was a pilot in the Canadian Air Force. After retiring from the Air Force, he embarked on various business ventures, which included moving his family to Kelowna and becoming a local orchardist and held several management positions in Vanguard Trailers. Andy also moved on to the retail industry running the Dogs Ear franchise in Orchard Park Kelowna, Village Green Mall in Vernon and Cherry Lane Mall in Penticton. Andy enjoyed fishing, golfing, and bowling. Andy had the opportunity to go traveling to various countries bringing back many pictures, stories, and memories that he loved to share with his friends and family. In his later years, Andy and his friend Gene had their routine of visiting various Tim Hortons and paying close attention to the up and coming events and development of our fair city, which was many a family dinner conversation topic! The family would like to send out a special Thank-you to the Doctors, Nurses, and staff at KGH and to Karen and Janice at the KGH Renal Unit. As per his request there will be no service, Interment at Lakeview Memorial Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations may be directed to The Kidney Foundation, 200 - 4940 Canada Way, Burnaby BC V5G 4K6.

The Kelowna and District Fish and Game Club's annual fun jug shoot on May 26 attracted about 170 participants.

We appreciate the assistance of our major sponsor, Weber & Markin Gun Shop, Powick Road, which donated ammunition. Chris Weber also supplied firearms and worked at the club ranges on shoot day.

BUSINESS Task and process


need equal time

The inaugural Turner Volkswagen Show and Shine, held June 23, resulted in raising a donation of $868.50 for the B.C. Professional Firefighter’s Burn Fund. On hand for the donation presentation Tuesday at the Enterprise Way firehall in Kelowna were Greg Hardy, general manager of Turner Volkswagen (front, right) and Aaron Fanslau, the dealership sales manager, along with firefighter Jeff McNairn and his fellow firefighters.


n the world of work, we spend a great deal of time in meetings, usually far more than we’d like when there is so much else that needs to get done. Let’s take the example of leadership team meetings. The boss decides it is important to bring the senior managers together for weekly meetings. The thinking is that doing so will strengthen the team as a unit and engage them in dealing with strategic issues. Those are fine objectWORK ives. Regular team meetLIFE ings are a great way to keep key managers up to date on high level organizational plans that impact them and their work Laurie groups. can’t just be a oneMills wayItdialogue, though. There is also a wonderful opportunity here to draw on the collective strengths of the senior team to create well designed management strategies. Unfortunately, weekly leadership team meetings often end up to be task-focused most of the time. The focus is on identifying what needs to be done and making it happen. It’s an easy habit to slip into because there will always be operational problems to resolve and new opportunities to explore. However, if these tactical concerns form the regular agenda, it leaves the leadership team little time for big picture strategizing, which is a key component of their role. The way to maximize the outcomes of leadership team meetings is to plan ahead, manage the time skilfully and use efficient processes to keep the group moving forward in their discussions and decision-making. With all the demands put on senior managers these days, using their time wisely is vital. One thing that I recommend strongly to my executive clients is to regularly set aside an entire meeting for reflecting on and analyzing how the leadership team functions in key areas. How is information shared, how is discussion facilitated, how is disagreement managed and how are decisions made? What is done in team meetings is important, but perhaps even more critical to outcomes is how it is done. It is easier to do this kind of analysis with an outside facilitator who can observe the team in action, give feedback and suggest ways to improve its processes. Drawing on the resources of a trained facilitator to help the team function more effectively is a smart move. Doing it on a regular basis is even smarter. Old habits die hard, as we say, and it is too easy to sacrifice an effective process when the tasks loom large. Still, with some solid tools and resources in place, the team can learn to self manage.

‘Green’ concrete a construction first Kelowna architect Hugh Bitz heard buzz about a “green concrete” project and called UBC. Bitz is always looking for ways to integrate green strategies and technologies into building projects —and he decided that green concrete was the answer for constructing his own new home. The application is based on research done by the School of Engineering at the UBC Okanagan campus. Assistant professor of engineering Shahria Alam researched methods for recycling used concrete, composite scrap, crushed and mixed as aggregate for fresh concrete. It is estimated up to 1,000 metric tonnes of composite scrap are produced in the B.C. Interior

nagan Sustainability Institute director Keith Culver. “This is a great example of UBC’s contribution to innovation for sus-

tainability, from Shahria’s lab bench to use in practice with a community partner,” said Culver. “This Okanagan first shows what we try to do every day at the Okanagan Sustainability Institute, acting as a catalyst of sustainability research, development and application in the valley and beyond.” Bitz sees an innovative future where sustainable construction practices are commonplace. “Concrete is used in 100 per cent of construction projects for footings and foundations. It’s an easy means to reintegrate discarded materials into the building process that would otherwise go into the landfill,” said Bitz. “It just makes sense to use this in all buildings.”

Then you need to assess your readiness by taking a look at the technologies that you use and whether they will work in the cloud. You need to look at the potential business risks of having your data in the cloud and also at any security or compliance issues. You also need to develop a conversion plan and a cost budget. You need to consider downtime in case a disaster hits the location of the data centre. How much will any downtime cost you and does the data centre have an alternate location so you can access your data?

Plan for best use of time in meetings

Mills from A29 A great practice for the boss is to get input on the agenda, identify the priority outcomes for the meeting and share those in advance. Then allot a specific amount of time for each agenda item and

clearly identify whether it is for discussion only, follow up action or requires a team decision. By laying out those parameters up front, the leadership team will show up knowing what is expected of them. This approach works particu-

larly well for individuals who like to gather their thoughts in advance and bring along any relevant documents to support discussion or decision-making. When a leadership team is expected to participate in a key decision,

it is absolutely critical to ensure that the process is focused and thorough. Common complaints are that an issue is discussed endlessly, things don’t get resolved and either a decision is perpetually postponed or it is made too quickly with in-

adequate data. By establishing—and consistently following —a step-by-step problem solving process that leads the team through the stages of data gathering, analysis, assessment of options and their impact on people will increase

the quality of any decision. A periodic review of team processes can really highlight what’s working well and what is not. Laurie Mills is an ICF certified executive coach and human resource professional. 250-869-7523

The District of West Kelowna hopes Music in the Park will build upon the success it enjoyed last summer. The free summer concert series begins this Friday from 6:45 to 9 p.m., and will run every Friday

evening until Aug. 30 at Memorial Park, adjacent to Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre. Each event will feature a headline act, an opening performance and music by young local musicians. Genres throughout the summer will include country, pop, classical and more. West Kelowna recreation

staff will also be in the park with activities for children. On Friday, “talented kid” Georgia Kemp will warm up the crowd before Cynthia Leigh-Ann takes the stage. Public House Band are this week’s headlining band. Last summer more than 3,000 people attended the concert series. An aver-

age of 430 people attended each week; Shawn Hook’s Aug. 24 performance brought out more than 600 people. In the coming weeks, West Kelowna council will look at ordering a new, portable stage for events like Music in the Park and Westside Daze as part of the Memorial Park Plan.




West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater said, if approved, the stage will likely be “on wheels, pre-wired and quite a bit more jazzed up.” For more information on Music in the Park, visit wpaterson Twitter: @PatersonWade

Nick Gilder, Sweeney Todd to headline Dancin’ Barefoot

In celebration of its sixth year, the Dancin’ Barefoot Music Festival will welcome Nick Gilder Sweeney Todd Group to the Cousins Park stage July 20. Started by Peachland-based Elvis tribute artist Terry MacGillivray in the summer of 2007, the Dancin’ Barefoot Music Festival offers a classic rock and roll summer evening. English-Canadian glam rock legend Nick Gilder and his first band, Sweeney Todd, plan to play hits like their 1976

number one single, Roxy Roller, and the 1978 hit, Hot Child in the City. MacGillivray’s wife, Valerie, and daughter, Patricia Cheyne, have run the festival since Terry passed away in 2008. They say it has grown significantly over the years; in fact, Gilder approached them to land a spot on the bill this year. “I am a big fan of his music. I think he’s got a great sound and I like everything about him. I like his rapport with the audience and the way he appreciates his fans,” said

Cheyne. Opening for Gilder will be Shawn Hook, a Nelson-based artist with a successful first album under his belt. Gorden James and The Good Guys band will add a hint of country to the evening. James recently appeared on the CMT Canada series Big in a Small Town as one of only two B.C.-based artists featured. Rounding out the lineup is Kelowna newcomer, The Newks, who won themselves a spot on the stage with a powerful

The festival will once again use wristbands for ticket-holders, allowing the audience to come and go from the park all evening. This year wine will be offered in both the beer garden and VIP lounge.
