Boaters, who use the city parking lot at the north-east corner of Skaha Lake, won’t be paying for parking this season after the City of Penticton decided to delay parking fees until next year. The five councillors present voted 4-1 in favour of a new parking fee structure for the popular launch site. Starting in 2014, boaters can expect to pay $5 for half a day or $10 for the full day to park their vehicle and trailer in the lot. An annual pass costs $70 for residents, or $105 for non-residents. Coun. John Vassilaki was the lone holdout, concerned that this was putting an unnecessary burden on local boaters. “We’re going to be penalizing the citizens of Penticton just so we can make a few dollars off the tourists,” said Vassilaki, who has been advocating that the city build a day-moorage marina for years in order to promote boating. “They want to have their fun here, but they want to have a place here where they can put the trailer their boat is on without having to be harassed or having to pay and worry about the time they have to leave,” he said. It will still be free to launch a boat at Skaha Lake. According to the staff report, the parking fees are only for the designated areas within the parking lot next to the boat launch area, or along South Main. The other lots in Skaha Lake Park remain free for use. Purchasing an annual pass doesn’t guarantee a space at the Skaha Lake boat trailer parking lot or along South Main. It still remains first come, first served. Coun. Judy Sentes admitted she fielded several calls about the addition of parking rates, including one from a family who said they put their boat in the water there be-

½

tween two and four times a week. But they became agreeable to the changes, she said, once they understood there would be an annual pass available. “That becomes a cost for them, but they were very open to having a pass. At $70 they would have that paid for fairly quickly,” said Sentes. Mark Attrill, co-owner of Penticton Yamaha and Marine, which neighbours the city parking lot, said they have heard from both sides in the boating community. “I don’t think there is going to be a lot of conflict over it,” said Attrill, adding that from what he hears from the tourists, paid parking at boat launch sites is common. “We’ve heard people that are disappointed that they have to pay, they are used to it being free. Others that are saying you have to pay everywhere else.” Coun. Wes Hopkin argued it is time to shift the burden of paying for the lot to the users, and that cities around the world are moving towards people paying for parking. “There are a lot of people in this community who don’t have boats, or who don’t drive their cars much and shouldn’t have to be forced to pay,” said Hopkin. “They are going to pay on their taxes if we don’t charge the actual users.” The delay in implementing the new fees is because the parking meter to be used on the site is still on order, and won’t be delivered before the end of the 2013 boating season. But when the City of Penticton does install it and activate the new parking fees, it should pay for itself quickly. At a cost of $10,000, it works out to about 95 non-resident passes. “Being able to install the machine in time for this season is not going to happen, so it is more appropriate for the fee to commence as of 2014,” said Anthony Haddad, director of development services.

Keremeos youth drowns in Similkameen River Steve Arstad

Keremeos / Okanagan Falls Review

Friends of Derek James Woodrow erected a monument Sunday on the portion of dike adjacent to where Woodrow drowned Saturday afternoon. The 19-year-old Keremeos resident became trapped in a boulder-laced channel of the Similkameen River after falling out of a raft on July 20. He was tied in but his rope came undone, said Woodrow’s friends Monday morning, gathering in tribute around the memorial. A rope bobbing on the riverbed marked the spot where Woodrow’s body was recovered. “He was a good swimmer, he knew this river, he grew up around it, said A.J., a friend of Woodrow. Woodrow went tubing often and knew better than to tie a rope around his leg, A.J. added, countering suggestions Woodrow had a rope attached to a cooler tied to his leg. “I wish I had been here,” A.J. said bitterly. “I would have gotten him out.” Six friends in five rafts set out from Red Bridge Saturday afternoon for a leisurely cruise

Keremeos Volunteer Fire Chief Jordy Bosscha said the department performed to the limits of their training during the incident, noting that the department is not trained to handle river conditions such as those that existed at the drowning site on Saturday. “These type of incidents can develop very quickly,” said Bosscha. “There’s not a lot of time when a victim is trapped underwater.” Members of Penticton’s Search and Rescue Swift water Rescue Team recovered the body Saturday evening. A service is being planned to take place at Cawston Hall on July 27.

Penticton benefits from traffic fine revenue Western News Staff

Local projects in Penticton will benefit from nearly $231,000 in traffic fines being returned to the community through the B.C. government’s Strategic Community Investment Fund (SCIF). The fund will also be delivering $36,198 in traffic fine revenue to Summerland along with a $168,084 small communities grant. The Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen will get a further $78,086 from the same source. This is just a small portion of the $56.2 million the province is doling out to B.C. communities through the SCIF to invest in policing and community safety, services and high priority municipal

projects. Since 2009, the province has disbursed more than $600 million through the SCIF. “These funds help local governments invest in priority projects that benefit everyone,” said Penticton MLA Dan Ashton. “They also support day-to-day operations and services that local residents rely on.” Municipalities will receive $31.1 million in traffic fine revenue sharing with $28.4 million directed to communities with over 5,000 people to help offset the cost of policing and community safety. Smaller municipalities and unincorporated rural areas will receive a $2.7 million reduction in their provincial police property tax. Municipalities with populations under 20,000 share $23 mil-

lion in small community grants, specifically meant to help address infrastructure and service delivery priorities. “The Strategic Community In-

vestment Fund is all about creating safer, healthier, more liveable communities that allow B.C. families to thrive,” said Coralee Oakes, minister of community, sport and cultural development. For smaller communities in particular, the fund often represents a major portion of their operating budget. This is money in the hands of local governments to provide local programs and services and to invest in community safety. The small community grant and regional district basic grant assist local governments in providing basic services, while the traffic fine revenue sharing program assists eligible municipalities paying police enforcement costs. The grants come from ticket

fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets, and the amount of money a municipality receives is based on its contribution to total municipal policing costs. Previous years’ traffic fine revenue has been used for more policing, new equipment and increased community safety initiatives. “Returning traffic fine revenue to B.C. municipalities has put hundreds of millions of dollars back into communities,” said Suzanne Anton, attorney general and minister of justice. “The funds help communities support local police services and crime prevention programs, and give the communities the discretion to allocate that money in ways they believe will be most beneficial.”

Strict conditions are being sought for a convicted sex offender living in Okanagan Falls. Crown counsel has put forward an application for Ronald Teneycke to live under what is called a Section 810.2. order. “The application is made on the basis that there are alleged to be reasonable grounds to fear the person will commit a serious personal injury offence, in a general explanation that covers a number of sexual offences as well as certain other violent offences where there is a maximum penalty of 10 years or more,” said crown spokesperson Neil Mackenzie. While not able to get into the specifics of the application, Mackenzie said Section 810.2 of the criminal code is intended to provide a means of putting some controls or restrictions on the persons behaviour in the community. According to parole documents, Teneycke was labelled as a high risk to reoffend when he was released from the Prince Albert Federal Corrections Institution in 2007 and moved to the South Okanagan. He spent 12 years behind bars, eight of them for sexual assault with a

Ronald Teneycke weapon, forcible confinement and uttering threats against a 17-year-old Okanagan Falls girl in 1993. While in a B.C. jail, a probation officer reported Teneycke’s girlfriend was a correctional officer in the same facility. Teneycke threatened the probation officer’s life in remarks made to another inmate and was convicted of uttering threats and received another four year sentence. Teneycke had only been out of jail for a week, from a conviction of sexual exploitation committed against a former partner’s 16-year-old daughter, when he picked up the 17-yearold Okanagan Falls girl at a local gas station and drove her to a secluded area. Parole documents said he “brutalized and tortured” the teen for five hours. Just two months after moving back to the Okanagan in

2007, Teneycke was sent back to jail for a six-month stint for breaching his probation twice. At the time Teneycke said he was living in a “fish bowl atmosphere” and this pressure from the community caused him to return to drug use. He turned himself in to an Oliver health centre seeking treatment for the effects he was suffering due to cocaine use. His second breach was failing to show his medical doctor a list of release conditions as ordered. A probation report at the time described Teneycke’s willingness to participate in programs and outlined steps that he was taking to change his life, but two years later Teneycke was back in jail for breaking his probation order and racking up new charges. He pled guilty to three counts of uttering threats, dangerous driving and fleeing a peace officer and was sentenced to 14 months and 90 days for breaching. The charges stem from an incident that started when Oliver/Osoyoos RCMP officers attended Teneycke’s residence in Gallagher Lake to investigate a report of threats after he got into an argument with a man from whom he purchased a truck. Teneycke failed to comply

with the arrest and fled in his vehicle and a high-speed chase ensued, in which he evaded police. The next morning Teneycke turned himself in to Oliver RCMP. In 2011, Teneycke was acquitted of a sexual assault alleged to have happened on a logging road in Okanagan Falls against a hitchhiker he picked near the Penticton airport. In a trial by judge alone, Justice James WIlliams said he was left with reasonable doubt because there was not enough evidence for a conviction, but he “strongly suspects” the incident unfolded as the complainant testified to. Teneycke is scheduled to appear in court for the Section 810.2 application on Wednesday at the Penticton courthouse. If he does not willingly consent to the application a hearing will be held so Teneycke can speak to the matter. Under Section 810.2, the conditions can only be applied to the person for a maximum of two years. Once that expires another application can be made and hearing held to decide if the conditions should continue. A person convicted for a breach of their Section 810.2 conditions can receive up to two years in jail.

Years after a woman died as a result of a medication mix-up at an Okanagan hospital, an Interior Health Authority audit found there still exists a “moderate to high risk” to patients at its facilities. Brenda Gaida, 40, was admitted to Vernon Jubilee Hospital in July 2007 for treatment of a skin condition for which she received a drug called methotrexate. Her health deteriorated and she died three months later at an Alberta hospital. Her family claimed the cause of death was “methotrexate brain toxicity” due to excessive doses she received at VJH, according to a B.C. Supreme Court ruling issued this month, which confirmed a $440,000 judgment against Interior Health, the hospital and four doctors. The defendants admitted the drug was mistakenly given to Gaida daily rather than weekly. Issues with medication management arise frequently. In 2011 alone, Interior Health reported 5,306 “medication related events” to a provincial database that tracks adverse events, near-misses and hazards, according to an internal audit report completed Dec. 24, 2012, and obtained by the Western News through a freedom of information request. Auditors assessed eight of the region’s largest acute care sites and found just 56 per cent compliance with “standard practices and policy,” and identified “multiple opportunities for substantial improvement,” according to the report. “In Internal Audit’s opinion, there exists a moderate to high risk of significant patient harm associated with the current medication management practices as observed in selected medical surgical inpatient units.” The report lists some breaches auditors uncovered, including medication carts, some of which contained controlled substances, left unattended in many hallways; six of eight sites did not waste narcotics according to policy, and some staff asked others to witness narcotics wastage after the fact; patient ID and allergy bands at all sites were not checked prior to administration of medication; at all sites, medications were poured into cups and not labelled, nor were syringes, with the exception of those that were prelabelled by the manufacturer The audit cited six factors as the main causes of staff’s non-adherence to policy, such as stress from a heavy workload, distractions and interruptions, plus facility shortcomings like space limitations and technology failures. Twelve recommendations for improvement are contained in the report,

Outcry misses important point There is no question Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African American was shot by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighbourhood watch volunteer in a gated community in Florida. Zimmerman testified as much during his trial for the murder of Martin. Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges which has led to a groundswell of pubic opinion to address racism and abolish stand your ground laws on the books in many states in the U.S. In Florida, the stand your ground law extends beyond the boundaries of private property to public spaces and does not require a person to attempt to retreat before using deadly force. Ending racism and abolishing stand your ground laws would certainly be welcome changes. However, the focus on racism and laws sidesteps one important point, Zimmerman was carrying a gun. Why did a supposed neighbourhood watch volunteer have a gun? If Zimmerman wasn’t carrying a gun the outcome of the incident would have been very different. Zimmerman would likely not have been emboldened to follow and confront Martin. The mandate for neighbourhood watch programs is to prevent crime and vandalism and members are encouraged to contact authorities and not to intervene when they witness suspicious behaviour. In fact, when Zimmerman contacted local poWESTERN licePENTICTON to inform them of Martin’s presence in the gated community, he was told not to confront Martin. Zimmerman overstepped this boundary. By the way, Martin was walking back to his father’s fiancee’s house where he was visiting. He had every right to be where he was.

Green MLA talks coal and controversy After climate scientist-turned-Green Party member of legislative assembly Andrew Weaver had a taste of debate in the B.C. legislature, I asked him for his impressions on that and other issues. Excerpts from that discussion: TF: You did a study comparing burning all the world’s coal reserves and all oil reserves, showing how big coal really is. The federal government says that when you add up what’s actually being used in North America, carbon emissions from coal are about 30 times more than from oil. Now we have a symbolic coal export ban in Vancouver, which doesn’t apply to Port Moody or Point Roberts or Prince Rupert. Do you think there’s any significance to this?

converting [power production] to natural gas. This is why American producers are saying, let’s ship it to Asia. California says no, Oregon says no, Washington says no. Vancouver says no, British Columbia, not sure. It’s pushing us to start thinking about what I think is going to be the greatest industrial revolution the world has ever seen, which is transformation of energy systems away from our combustion approach, which is essentially what we’ve been doing since we were in caves. We’ve gone from burning wood to now fossil wood, and fossil plants and fossil algae, to a much more modern era of production of energy through natural means, solar, wind, geothermal etc. TF: Liquified natural gas. The NDP says they are absolutely in favour of that now. AW: I have questioned the economics of it from day one.

Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views There’s a market differential that exists now. There’s that small window because Japan is moving from nuclear to natural gas. But we’re way behind everyone else. TF: Thirty years ago, Japan played Australia and B.C. off for metallurgical coal. Those northeast B.C. coal mines are back up and running again, but you’re seeing a similar thing here?

AW: Yes. And if we start shipping natural gas to Asia, the Asian price comes down, the North American price goes up. British Columbians haven’t been told that. TF: How has the legislature session been for you? AW: I sit there and watch the two parties. Rhetorical question, condescending answer. Rhetorical question, condescending answer. And I hope more British Columbians watch this, because this needs to change. And I think it can change. TF: The NDP opposition decides when you and Delta South Independent Vicki Huntington get your occasional moments in question period? AW: Yes, and if I’ve asked it’s been no problem. TF: Grudgingly no doubt. If the NDP had their way, the closest Green Party member would be in Holland. AW: [Laughs] Yes.

Certainly not in North America. There’s this sense of entitlement within the NDP to the ‘green’ vote. And I sense that the B.C. Liberals very much like our existence, as being not NDP. The reality is, we take as many Liberal votes, if not more. It’s because what it means to be ‘green’ has moved out of what the NDP view as green, which is a tree hugger. It’s kids going to school, talking about conservation, and going home to talk to their parents. That’s where our votes are coming from. TF: Are you going to be found standing in front of a coal train any time soon? AW: No, never. They asked me to, and I said no, because I don’t believe in civil disobedience.

Hush, Hush, Mr. Harper

Most politicians, once in office, have no problem in tooting their own horns, as it were. It may be a small matter like placing a street sign, or cutting a ribbon, dedicating a playground or other minutiae like the aforementioned. However, when it comes to real nuts and bolts accountability issues, they seem to have the innate ability to stonewall, pass the buck or ignore important details altogether. We are reminded that they ran for office on a certain platform that they sold many of us on so that we would elect them to do our bidding and represent our constituency. So much for theory! What happens in reality, seems, in many cases, to be a horse of another color, so to speak! So, you might be asking what else is new? The answer is very simply, nothing! It seems that in many political arenas these days, the truth as we know it differs from the slanted truth that many of them are feeding us. A case in point is the current Senate investigation. How is it that the driver of the political bus seems to claim ignorance as to any involvement at party level regarding the facts. It seems to me, that as the party in power, a jaundiced eye on issues would be the order of the day. The head in the sand approach, doesn’t quite cut it! Or does it? The rhetoric going back and forth would seem to indicate that this is happening. Mr. Harper, as well as Ms. Clark, must realize the flood gates are open and key issues are at the front of things. However, schmoozing and playing the I didn’t know scenario, will only be tolerated for so long. Voter apathy will not prevail forever. Voter intolerance will show up very soon, I would suspect, or this game of ring around the rosy, will continue. Mr. Harper has shuffled his cabinet recently. Big deal, who does he think that he is fooling? We might compare this shuffle to a carton of eggs. Sure you change a few and yet, leave some in the carton. It doesn’t make the whole carton fresher as a result of the new additions. With an election upcoming, it will take more than a mere shuffle to convince voters that he is the man! Other political parties will have much of the ammunition they need to fight a rigorous political battle and perhaps cause a Humpty Dumpty effect next time. Who knows? I have always felt that the Sen-

ate, unless responsibly elected, (and sometimes not even then) is a non-essential, superfluous branch of government that is a money-pit of gargantuan proportion. It survives mainly on nepotism and, has done so for some time. Nothing new here! The real question is why? The real answer, in my opinion, is because We let it! There has been no protestation, by us, of any sort. Does that tell us anything? In essence, we seem to be playing a similar game to that of Mr. Harper. How long we play it depends on us. We know the rules, we know the players, however, we don’t know about the outcome. We can influence the outcome by letting key players know that we are less than satisfied with the way they are playing the game. How can we do this, you might ask? As I have said before, we must make ourselves heard. This can be done by letter bombardment to political figures; by media publication and yes, even by physical protest. Wow, did I really say political protest? What a novel idea. There is, of course, that one aspect that we seem to overlook. That aspect is apathy. Until we get off our posteriors and become doers instead or sayers and watchers, our political pundits will play this game to the nth degree, and they will continue to win. Ron Barillaro Penticton

Dog park complaints muzzled

I answered a questionnaire by phone from the city a short time ago on the importance of different venues in Penticton. I also complimented the city on the great dog parks we have. I take the compliment back. We have had people from outside our city visiting with their dogs. Of course comparisons are made of the different parks available for dog owners. Shame on us. The grass is so tall, a person can’t find their dog’s droppings. Many of us do compliment pick-ups when we clean up after out pets, but come on city, it’s summer and the grass grows much quicker. Let’s try to keep the parks looking good and make it a healthy place to take our dogs. Louise Silbernagel Penticton

Evening shopping would be great

Comments: Tourist season and summer have arrived in Penticton. The beaches are crowded with people enjoying our beauti-

ful climate and the water. But what is there to do after being on the beach? While downtown Penticton is frequented by few shoppers during regular store hours, when they would enjoy a “Bummel” up and down Main Street in the cooler evening hours, the stores are closed. This is pure backwardness and lack of business sense, when one compares tourist places around the world. Many such places have store hours from 9 or 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., then close till 5 p.m. and then are open again till 9 or 10 p.m. This would draw people to the downtown core, like we see it at the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. Penticton at 6 p.m. is a dead place, and it need not be, it needs a change of attitude. Tourists want to have something to do besides getting a suntan on the beach and eating at a fast food restaurant. I think we are missing a great opportunity in attracting more tourists by depriving them of enjoying a lively downtown experience during the evening hours.

Park stance disappointing

Open letter to the Penticton & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce.

I was most disappointed in your letter of July 3 reaffirming the chamber’s stance to not currently support the national park proposal. Actually I and many other park proponents have been asking the chamber to support the “re-engagement and re-opening of the park talks” rather than actually supporting the park proposal. There are several outstanding issues but under the way the park establishment system operates, Parks Canada is not allowed to negotiate with stakeholders, including HNZ, unless the provincial government gives the go-ahead to re-open talks. Re-opening talks does not mean the Park will be established but it does mean that Parks Canada can talk to stakeholders and see if common ground exists. I cannot understand where the downside is for the chamber and area businesses in this scenario. Furthermore, in your letter of July 3, you mention numerous businesses that have “expressed concerns and opposition” to the

park proposal. I have gone through the list of Chamber members and I find it difficult to see many, if any, businesses other than HNZ, that could potentially be adversely affected by the park proposal. Furthermore, any concerns can only be addressed by Parks Canada if the process is re-opened. You spent considerable space pointing out the benefits of having HNZ operate in Penticton and area. I do not ever remember anyone denying the economic benefits of their operations. HNZ does not currently have unfettered access in perpetuity to their training areas. They must obtain provincial permits and must file environmental impact assessments in order to obtain those permits. The park proponents are advocating for business security for HNZ and a national park. Parks Canada made it clear in their letters that they would continue HNZ’s park use permits within a

national park. If Parks Canada were to agree to the same terms as HNZ currently has, I don’t see how that would throw their operations in jeopardy. Once again Parks Canada can only work out a suitable agreement with HNZ if the talks are re-opened. As part of a recent trip to visit relatives in Saskatchewan, I made a visit to Grasslands National Park located in southern Saskatchewan where I spoke to local ranchers and park employees. When the park was established about 25 years ago, many local ranchers were against the concept and swore they would never work with, or sell their land to, the park service. Several things have recently happened there that suggest the ranchers in the south Okanagan could possibly be accommodated. First, the Parks Act has been amended so that grazing of cattle is now allowed in parts of Grasslands National Park. Secondly, many of those ranchers previously against the park are now on board and will tell you they

support the park. Several of them have been working with the park to help re-establish some threatened species on their adjoining properties and just recently two large parcels were sold to the park by ranchers who had previously said, “over my dead body.” But once again Parks Canada cannot re-open negotiations with the local stakeholders until the provincial government re-engages. Therefor I urge the board to look again at this issue and support the re-opening of talks between Parks Canada and the area stakeholders. The chamber needs to take the stand that they support the establishment of a national park only if HNZ gets business security and the valid concerns of stakeholders such as the local ranchers can be addressed.

Smear misguided

(re: Honest politician smeared; Editorial, Western News, July 14) Are you suggesting

that nine unelected Liberal candidates who now hold government jobs are not honest? That Mr. Stewart, who stepped aside for the special byelection, should be the exception to this golden rule (lose an election, but not to worry, the premier will look after you) gives grounds for a whisper, don’t you think? Why not instead use your position to query this blatant political use of public funds. Justification?

Board grateful for benefit help

On behalf of the board and staff of Pathways Addictions Resource Centre, I wish to thank everyone who helped to make the Beatriz Boizan benefit concert at the Shatford Centre on Saturday evening such a memorable success. First is Beatriz herself who so graciously shared her outstanding talent as a pianist without charge and who also donated the proceeds from the sale of her CDs. We thank Jane Shaak and her very

capable staff at the Shatford Centre and our sponsors, Kemp Harvey Kemp, the Penticton Herald, Johnston Meier Insurance and the South Okanagan Naturopathic Clinic. The help of local media and groups in promoting the concert, including Kristi Patton of the Penticton Western News, James Miller of the Penticton Herald, Allen Gee of EZ Rock AM 800 and Dennis Walker of SO Country Internal Radio, David Finnis of Arts Palette and the Downtown Business Association is greatly appreciated. We offer a special thanks to Dennis for emceeing the program as well as to all the volunteers for their assistance. And finally, we also wish to thank the 160 people who came to enjoy Beatriz’ stunning performance while supporting Pathways’ in its important work with members of our community affected by, or at risk of developing alcohol, drug and related problems.

Wesley adds Fuel to Fire Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Western Canadian Music Award nominee Daniel Wesley is performing at the Mule on Saturday. Wesley was given a nod in the Songwriter of the Year category for his tune Fuel to Fire, alongside notable nominees like Ewan Currie of the Sheepdogs for Feeling Good. “I was putting it together at the beginning of the the Ocean Wide album and it just kind of came together. I started banging out this guitar riff that had a little swing to it and it was fun,” said Wesley. “I started singing along and put paper to pen and this came out of it.” It is something that has just come natural to Wesley, who holds a track record of putting out an album every two years. “I love recording but I love playing live too. I don’t know if I like one over the other because they are so totally different. Every time I make an album it’s because I have a bunch of

songs I am really proud of, it is not that I feel pressured to put something out. When I am writing it comes natural and I don’t chase it,” said Wesley. After cutting his teeth putting albums out himself and an indie record in 2009, Wesley has cut his last three records with 604 Records. “I’m a hard worker and like working my butt off, so I don’t want anyone to hand me some-

thing. This is my full time job and I like working with people at the label but I’m also looking forward to a time when I create my own team and do it all myself,” he said. Ocean Wide gives listeners a taste of a songwriter who has come into his own as a lyricist. Having dabbled in different sounds, including reggae, this record can mostly be put in the category of rock but with a raw

emotion and energy. “I have always played rock music, but this album is a little different style of rock and it’s one that seems more natural to me.” he said. Tracks like When the River Dries Up shows his vulnerable side, he even admits it caught him off guard. “For some reason, throughout the process of making this record, I was a little down, and I don’t know why. When The River Dries Up was just one of those times when I was thinking about my wife and all she meant to me. And like another song, Sun Shine Down, it was like me questioning whether I am giving enough. Am I worth enough to have the person that I am with? But as down as I was, both are uplifting songs in their own way. In the chorus of When The River Dries Up you realize that everyone makes things work, whether they go through tough times or not.” Tickets are $25 and available at The Mule or at Green Beanz Cafe during the day.

Singer lands top instruction from idol Kristi Patton Western News

Penticton’s Saige Carlson said despite not landing in the finals of a national singing competition, in her mind she got the top prize. “Those who didn’t move on got to do a masterclass with the judges and I got to do that with Isabel Bayrakdarian which I was really excited about because she is my favourite singer. I was beside myself,” said Carlson. “I wouldn’t have gotten the feedback

I did if I made it to the finals, and at this stage in my singing I need that.” Carlson, who represented B.C., was the youngest of those chosen to the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Association convention held July 3 to 6. She only found her voice as a soprano six years ago and said training with Lynne Leydier has helped develop her into a multifaceted artist. Despite having rehearsal jitters, Carlson said her performance in

Halifax went without a hitch in front of the judges including Bayrakdarian. “It felt like it just fell into place and it was a really good experience,” said Carlson. “I felt like I grew as a singer and it was really educational getting to see and meet all these singers.” Carlson held a fundraising concert last month to help her with the costs. “I just feel really lucky to live in this place where everyone is so supportive,” said Carlson.

While on tour, guests can stop at stations along the way to sample local wines and tasty appetizers. After the tour, guests return to the Main Plaza to enjoy some entrees dishes, wine and dessert. Musical entertainment and a lively silent auction round out the evening’s festivities. More than a dozen local restaurants and wineries will be on hand, donating their products and time to provide guests with a memorable evening. Romancing the Desert is the Desert Society’s major fundraiser and proceeds from the event support the group’s efforts to conserve at-risk habitats, including the South Okanagan’s antelopebrush ecosystem.

EvandEr KEnnEdy reaches out to touch somebody during a visit with his parents andrea and Terry along with Penticton IGa Market owner Colin Powell (right). Powell recently held a fundraising event to help the Kennedys with their expenses as the boy continues to receive medical treatment.

Mark Brett/Western news

Evander a community effort Mark Brett

Western News Staff

At just 22 months of age, Evander Kennedy has already proven he’s a force to be reckoned with. So far in his short life the bright-eyed youngster with the infectious smile has defied the odds and survived not one but two tumours and a stroke. “He’s very determined; a big fighter that’s for sure,” said his father Terry. “I think he gets that from both his mother (Andrea) and I. We’re very determined, I guess you would call it stubborn. “Back when things were really bad even the doctors were saying it’s up to him and they now say he is a miracle.” The worst tumour was in the area of his liver and was growing at such a fast rate it was impacting his other organs. The second was in his chest.

“We still try not to think about it too much but the cancer was diagnosed when he was 2 1/2 months and we were constantly running in and out of hospital because they couldn’t figure out what it was,” said the father. “He stopped breathing once and we had to give him CPR. He started breathing again and we took him to Penticton Hospital.” Doctors could not find a cause and released him but less than 24 hours later the family was back. Evander was then transferred to Kelowna General Hospital and given a CT scan which revealed the tumours. The next trip was to B.C. Children’s Hospital. “The next day they started chemo because he needed it right then and there because the tumour in his liver was growing so fast it was killing him,” said Terry. “Evander was in ICU for two weeks and they

had him under sedation the whole time and we knew, ultimately it was out of our hands.” The parents spent as much time as they could at his bedside talking to their young son while he was in going through this difficult time. “I remember I just kept telling my wife every day is a different battle and if we can just get through the next one” said Terry. Andrea agreed. “It was definitely a hard go there but he pulled through and showed everyone how strong kids can be.” While he is still undergoing a number of tests and treatments in Vancouver, Evander is doing much better. Owner-manager Colin Powell of the Penticton and Summerland IGA MarketPlace stores learned of the Kennedy family’s situation from Terry, who did some work in the Penticton location. Understanding the financial hardship they

were having, Powell decided to help by doing some fundraising. “I’ve known what they’ve gone through for the last couple of years and it was really a good opportunity for me as a business owner to give back to somebody in our community,” said Powell. “It is just such complete satisfaction to help a family like that to be able to support their child, especially under those circumstances.” He also credited the residents of Penticton for rising to the occasion. For the Kennedys, the help, although not asked for, has been very welcome because of the travel costs and not being able to work. “At a time like that you feel a bit alone and then the community comes in and does things for you, it’s just amazing,” said Andrea. “We just want people to know how grateful we are.”

wilson steps into hall of fame experiences for her at each respective level. When asked what she enjoyed about coaching, the answer for Wilson, who operated the Centre Ice Female Hockey School in Summerland for 18 years, was simple. “Working with players and watching them develop, especially with young kids,” she said. The Blazers Memorial Cup teams were coached by Don Hay and assembled by general manager Bob Brown. Darcy Tucker, Jarome Iginla, Shane Doan, Hnat Domenichelli, Nolan Baumgartner, Jason Strudwick and Ryan Huska were just a few of the standout players on the two-time championship teams. Huska, who now coaches the Kelowna Rockets, said for those

teams to be inducted is special. “To now be inducted with some other great teams that have been a part of B.C. hockey history is going to be very special,” said Huska, adding that it is also humbling. “Something our group will always be proud of.” Huska said they were fortunate to be part of a great group that started with management and credited their success to the period of time they were together. That helped them develop a family bond eventually leading to their championship wins. “We weren’t expected to win the first year,” he said. “Maybe that’s what made that year so special, we weren’t a team that was picked to win the Western Hockey League. “We weren’t a team expected to win the Memorial Cup. “We really came together at the right time. “When you win when you’re not supposed to, it makes it that much sweeter. “I think the second year we were picked to be the best team right from the

Not every record is meant to be broken. As a result, when the dust settled at the 31st running of the Investors.ca Peach City Classic Sunday, two $5,000 cheques went unclaimed. Neither men’s winner, Jon Bird of Calgary, Alta. or Penticton’s Jen Annett, who topped the women’s standings, were able to best the existing best times in the Olympic distance race. As an incentive to attract the top athletes to the longest running triathlon in the BC Interior and put a little bit of extra spirit in their step, a total $10,000 cash prize for the record breakers was put up by the sponsors. The current men’s record is 1:54:25 set by Stefan Jacobsen in 1998 as was the women’s record of 2:04:25 by Carol Montgomery. Bird crossed the finish line in a time of 1:57:03 while Annett finished the course in 2:22:17. After the race Annett was all smiles and admitted it was her poor results in the swim which proved to be her motivator. “I guess for lack of better terms it just kind

of ticked me off enough that I just hammered it on the bike,” said the Penticton athlete whose next event will be the Challenge race. “Then I just kind of picked off people one by one and I got by all the women. “My strength is the bike and my game plan is that I get far enough ahead on the bike that I can’t get caught on the run but my run has really has improved so it worked out well.” Unfortunately, for another local athlete the results were not as good as expected. Jeff Symonds, a world-class competitor in the triple-event races, was gunning for his fifth Peach City Classic victory, but finished third behind Bird and runner up Andrew Russell of North Saanich. Symonds’ time was 2:03:31. “Ah, it was a tough day but it was good just to be out here having fun,” he said. “Any time you can race in your own town it’s good. No complaints. “The competition was good with those guys (Russell and Bird) and having that record bonus attracted a good field. To win these races you usually have to be fresh, fit and healthy and it looked like these guys had all three going for them.” Symonds added he used the event both

as a physical and mental training ground for next month’s Challenge race. “That’s kind of my sole focus right now,” he said. “For me I deal with a few extra pressures when you’re running in your home town and I tend to let myself get pulled in quite a few different directions so it was good to have this experience.” For Bird, who just the day before won the Across Lake Swim in Kelowna, the Classic was a challenge. “It was a great race and a tough course,” said the Calgary resident. “Especially that ride out to Naramata, there’s a lot of hills and rollers and that takes away some of your speed but you can also carry quite a bit of speed if you hit them right.” In addition to the Olympic course there was also a shorter, sprint portion of the race. The male winner was Chilliwack’s Robert Johnson in a time of 1:06:05 and the first place woman was Erica Moser-Reschreiter of Vernon in 1:19:16. The Olympic route is a 1.5-kilometre swim, 40-km bike ride and 10-km run. For the sprint it is a 750-metre swim, 20-km bike ride and five-km run.

Hilditch claims men’s open again Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Corey Hilditch won the Penticton Golf and Country Club Men’s Open for the second year in a row and has picked himself up a lucky charm. “I am five-for-five when (Curtis Fontinha) caddies for me,” said Hilditch who shot 68, 69 and 70.

Besides the Men’s Open, Hilditch has claimed the club championship twice, the B.C. Amateur qualifier, last year’s men’s open and the Osoyoos Rattlesnake Open tournament, all with Fontinha standing with him. Hilditch said although he has shot better scores on the course, he was happy with the tournament. Part of that trouble

could be the scorching temperatures Penticton had on the weekend. “The heat was kind of draining. I made a few mistakes and I was tired but I was always able to bounce back with a birdie after a bogey and keep my lead,” said Hilditch. Playing catch-up behind him was PGCC member Matt Hopkins who had the runner-up low gross with a score of 212 (71, 69 and 72). Kurt Dixon of Pontiex Golf Club had the overall low net with 191. Hilditch’s first round was his best, shooting a 68. Next up for the Penticton golfer is focusing on the Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur championship being held in Spruce Grove, Alta. from Sept. 3 to 6. “Curtis will be coming with me to that one,” said Hilditch, adding he would like to thank all the coaches and everyone who has helped him.

against a tough Quesnel squad when they hit the floor in the championship game last weekend in Delta, quickly digging themselves into a 2-0 hole. “Up until then we tended to be a lot bigger or at least the same size as the teams we played. With Quesnel they had a couple of guys that were 200-plus pounds, which is pretty big for bantam aged players. It had the boys thinking silver is not bad at the start of the game,” said assistant coach Goran Markovic. “That first period we were overpowered and our guys couldn’t stop them. But, we have some pretty athletic kids and they figured out that if we can’t go through them, we can go around.” It started with Heats Ben Olson cutting the 2-0 lead with a goal to end the first period. Quesnel pounced on the Heat again to start the second period, but the Heat didn’t let up and responded with three unanswered goals from Matts Bratton, Jace Canada and Trenton Henson to take a 4-3 lead into the third period. “Quesnel started to

tire and our conditioning really kicked in. We went around them, started to pass a lot more and played smarter lacrosse. Scoring those three goals lifted our team and Quesnel was starting to chase us around and get tired. Before they could reach us to hit us, the ball was already gone,”

said Markovic. Bratton scored to open the third and added another along with Jace Canada and Aiden Canada. Quesnel managed to only score one more in the third, giving the Heat the 8-4 win and provincial gold. Jace Canada led the team in the final with two goals and one

assist, Bratton with three goals and Carson Shortreed with three assists. “Our goalie Connor Ramage really started to earn his keep in the third period and that is why he won the game MVP. He played so well and as the game wore on they couldn’t seem to score. He really shut them

down,” said Markovic. The Heat kicked off the round robin with a 10-3 win over the Port Coquitlam Saints with game MVP going to Jace Canada. They then defeated the Abbotsford Warriors 9-5 with Nash Moog earning the MVP, and defeated the Peninsula (Saanich) Warriors 9-2, with game MVP going to Tayedra Koppe. At the end of the round robin Aiden Warren was selected as FairPlay winner for Penticton and Jace Canada as team MVP. In the semi-final the Heat defeated the West Kootenay Wolf Pack 6-2 with Jace Canada given the game MVP. “The parents and fans in the crowd for the Heat were probably the loudest in the whole provincials tournament, even when we were down in the finals and the players commented on how that really helped boost them,” said Markovic. The assistant coach said it was an up-anddown season for the Heat, but earning bronze in three tournaments and one silver helped them peak at just the right time.

Canadian “Superfood” Gaining International Attention Creator of UMAC-Core™ UMAC-CORE is a unique product created out of an urgent need. In 2004 Tom Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness caused by asbestos exposure and given only months to live. He had been raising shellfish at his Research Sea Farm on Vancouver Island, simultaneously perfecting the only method worldwide of growing wild phytoplankton for use in the Aquaculture industry. Based on the wild plankton’s powerful nutritional profile, upon his diagnosis he decided to consume the blend of micronutrients as an energy source he so desperately needed at the time. Every day he ingested the minute ocean plants and every day he felt stronger and experienced less pain. Finally a surgeon performed exploratory surgery. To the doctor’s surprise he was inexplicably able to deliver Mr. Harper a clean bill of health.

In fact, Kim Iles says it’s the results she gets with animals that have convinced her of the product’s efficacy. “It’s not a placebo effect when you give it to your pets. We’ve nursed sick animals back to health with UMAC-CORE. That’s how I judge if a product really works - if you can see results with animals - and we do.”

UMAC-CORE quickly gained far more attention than Harper could have imagined. “People were experiencing really positive shifts in their health,” Harper says. “Our success was consumer driven and we weren’t quite prepared for the demand. There were times when staff would offer to spend the night at the office so that we could get the Mr. Harper’s Sea Farm which grows the wild product out, and they often did!” phytoplankton offered in UMAC-CORE is also making a positive impact on the environment. “I Today UMAC-CORE is available in over 800 consider it one on the greenest companies in the health food stores across Canada, in stores world.
