s there more to the Okanagan than skiing, beaches and wine tourism? The folks at the Silver Star Mountain Bike Park think so. And as the sport grows, it’s becoming quite evident there are ways to take a once elite-level adrenalin game and make it the kind of summer staple anyone in the valley, or B.C., can enjoy.

CLOSE-UP

An uphill climb for downhill adventure By Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

I

t’s 10 a.m. and I’m strapping on armour for what I’m pretty sure should prove the best day at work I’ve ever had. Then it hits me: I’m finally getting to try downhill mountain biking. The morning I hit the Silver Star Bike Park, I am roughly 12 to 15 years into a “I’m going to get to that one day” commitment to try careening down a muddy alpine trail looking like Darth Vader on wheels. My first bike, as an adult, was a Rocky Mountain Fusion. Much to my chagrin, it’s often listed on the Craigslist -style pedal portal PinkBike.com as “retro.” It’s my commuter option these days. I own three bikes: a Wal-Mart cruiser, commuter beast and a scratched to death, heavy as sin and even uglier than that road bike. I ride a lot. Nothing cost more than $1,000 new, though admittedly my road bike was a steal of a deal. In my youth, I was a decent cross-country rider. Now, old enough to say no to weird offers that might be fun but are equally likely to get me killed, I’m a very decent bike commuter who dreams of flying down dirty hairpins rather than the odd harrowing dustup with a truck in the

right-turn lane. Silver Star made it happen. But, by the end of this day, I would be able to say I saw a bear, slid effortlessly over some decently narrow wood features, felt the wind in my hair traversing a wildflower encrusted meadow—okay, I felt a breeze on the small strip of leg not covered by protective gear— and flew over the handlebars slamming face-first into gravel. The latter event actually happened in the first minute or so, as we headed across the hill toward the lifts to load up to the top of the mountain. A 43-pound bike does not react quite the same as my thin road tires—or the commuter or my cruiser—and while I’m always up for a challenge, and pretty athletic, I never learn anything quickly. “I can do this. I really do bike,” I keep telling my gracious—if clearly concerned he had just destroyed the woman sent to write about his mountain—host Ian Galbraith, Silver Star summer business manager. In a rather stunning turn of events, and with a fair bit of patience from Galbraith, I actually do make it to blue-level runs by the end of two hours and love it. Where this seemingly daunting sport might only appear to be in the adrenalin junky’s arena,

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

SILVER STAR BIKE PARK offers 18 runs in stages from green (easy) to blue (intermediate) to black (advanced riding) and double black diamond, with marked gates that prevent riders from doing heavy drops unexpectedly. bike parks present almost anyone with the ability to learn in a staged process that takes a rider from green to blue to black runs, just as one would find on a ski hill. It is very possible to develop a manageable learning curve that makes great strides seem effortless. Bruises are trophies on a mountain and great stories to tell over a beer; but if Galbraith’s claim

growth” of the sport. The bike park is now the big attraction in Whistler come summertime, filling the village with hordes of spokes, chains and full-face helmets and making the place appear equally busy to winter on weekends. Given the relativly inexpensive cost of running a bike park—less staff, less grooming and less water—it’s a business

that they’ve had people who couldn’t ride a bike challenge the trails is true, this could very well be the next big thing in Okanagan tourism. Silver Star opened for mountain biking in the early 1990s, but reopened as this Whistler-style, graduated system of groomed trails in 2004, on the heals of what the Whistler museum terms the “behemoth

model that really adds value to a hill, even on a small scale, Galbraith tells me. Whistler has managed to turn this into a $27.4 million revenue boost, not even an eighth of the resort’s total revenue in 2012, but decent gravy nonetheless. Considered the groundbreaker in the sport, opening that park 15 years ago set the stage

for Fernie, Panorama, Sun Peaks and Silver Star to follow suit. Silver Star is the biggest of the four new developments with 18 distinct runs and a growing program of lessons and camps. On the day I am there, professional riders Matt Hunter and Thom-

Although there currently isn’t legislation to enforce his position, Kelowna fire chief Jeff Carlisle is strongly suggesting the Legacy II apartment building be retrofitted with sprinklers on balconies and in the attic space. Carlisle told reporters Wednesday the Legacy building, which was severely damaged by fire Tuesday, was built to the B.C. building code standard. He stated B.C. fire chiefs want to change that standard to require sprinklers on balconies and in the attic space of similar buildings. On Thursday he reiterated his position by shedding light on his own experience. “In my career I can count about 15 or 20 of these structures that I’ve been to that have had essentially the same type of

‘‘

…OF 2,638 MULTIRESIDENTIAL BUILDING (FIRES)…10 PER CENT OCCURRED ON BALCONIES. Jeff Carlisle

scenario, where the fire starts on the outside of the building because the balconies are not sprinklered,” said Carlisle. Carlisle pointed to a report published by the University of Fraser Valley, with the expertise of Surrey fire chief Len Garis and Dr. Joseph Clare. “The report identifies that out of 2,638 multi-residential building (fires) of this type, 10 per cent of them occurred on the balconies,” said Carlisle. The report indicated the damage associat-

ed with outside fires was 2.4 times greater than the average loss associated with all other multi-residential structure fires. Without a sprinkler system or alarm on the decks of the building, the fire department is immediately on the defensive upon arrival, Carlisle added. “Ninety-nine per cent of all fires will be extinguished by a sprinkler. A sprinkler on a balcony will out-perform the fire department every single time.” Carlisle said he believes Kelowna can take the lead on this issue that has been a complaint of fire chiefs across the country for years. Until the code changes, Carlisle said he doesn’t encourage smoking or the use of propane barbecues on balconies. “We’ve had four of these fires in the last 30 months in Kelowna and

the devastation and the loss to the residents’ is significant.” The B.C. building code requires buildings that are five-storeys or higher to be equipped with balcony sprinklers; the Legacy apartment building was four-storeys. Whether or not Tuesday’s Legacy apartment fire was due to mechanical failure or human error has yet to be determined. ••• Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital has offered its services for anyone who needs medical assistance for their pets. Members of the public wishing to donate funds to assist the victims of both the Legacy apartment and Bristol apartment fires are encouraged to contact the local branch of the Canadian Red Cross at 250491-8443. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

letter of the week

Safety must be built in to codes

To the editor: Re: Apartment fires due to barbecues. Having been a sprinkler engineer in Ontario for several years and designed many, many systems for various occupancies, I can tell you that the codes in Kelowna, and for that matter B.C., are sorely lacking.  In the city of Toronto barbecues are not allowed in apartment buildings even if they are of concrete and steel, which is what they all are as wood frame is not allowed. Allowing frame construction over three floors is not wise and now they have allowed four and are talking of six to 10 which is really asking for trouble as our fire departments do not have the equipment, I don’t believe, to properly fight fires in them safely. Also, every commercial building, even if one storey, should have to have a sprinkler system—if not we are going to pay for it with loss of life and property and higher insurance. Len Jupp, Kelowna

Premiers’ annual get together a toned down affair

P

remier Christy Clark didn’t win a seat in time to join her 48 fellow B.C. Liberal MLAs in the legislature for the summer session she ordered up. By the time the byelection in Westside-Kelowna is certified by Elections B.C., Clark will be off to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. to meet with her fellow premiers in what is now loftily called the Council of the Federation. These gatherings used to be called First Ministers’ Conferences, and there was a set ritual, largely designed for the consumption of network television. Provincial premiers ganged up on the prime minister to demand federal “funding” for every conceivable need,

just as municipal leaders get together each year to present their demands to the B.C. government. Prime Minister Stephen Harper ended the show, declining to play Tom the role of villain in this Fletcher bit of political summer stock theatre, and it’s unlikely that any future national leader would reverse this prudent decision. The result, at least among western premiers, has been a quieter, more pragmatic effort to work together, rather than clumsy attempts to play a shell game with taxpayers’ pockets. The public got tired of this routine some time ago. I don’t need a poll to tell me this is one of the reasons for the decline in voter participation and en-

gagement in issues. Today, politicians frequently remind themselves out loud that there is “only one taxpayer” supporting the squabbling layers of this over-governed country. And yet, the same mistake keeps being made over and over by opposition politicians, and dutifully reported by the news media. The notion that all problems can and should be solved by “more government funding” is now so engrained in our education system that it seems inescapable. One of the NDP’s big “gotcha” items last week was the failure of the B.C. government to buy the latest sonar technology to locate and recover the bodies of people who have drowned in one of our thousands of lakes and rivers. As with the health care system, as soon as something is invented, some assume a right to it, regardless of cost.

Another big opposition target was the province’s failure to buy up remote properties in the Kootenays that have been discovered to be at high risk of further landslides such as the one that swept through a year ago. The question of limits for protecting people who choose to build homes in risky locations seldom comes up in our political-media theatre. The media’s key ingredients are sympathetic victims to fit their narrative that all corporations and governments are greedy, stingy, callous and incompetent in everything they do. What the opposition has dubbed “Christy Clark’s wheelchair tax” is another case in point. A Fraser Health Authority official patiently explained what was really going on here.

Mandate: Minimize BC Hydro rates, says minister To the editor: Re: Just Watch: Hikes in BC Hydro rate are Coming, Tom Fletcher column, July 12 Capital News. While NDP energy critic John Horgan asserts there is no business case for a nation building project like the Northwest Transmission Line, a line that will bring power to a huge part of the province currently running off diesel generators, our government believes investments such as this are exactly what BC Hydro should be doing. This project will open up world class mineral deposits and support new mines, like Red Chris, one of the top 10 copper gold deposits in the world. In fact, the Mining Association of BC estimates the line could attract more than $15 billion in mining investment, creating up to 10,000 jobs and generating $300

million in annual tax revenues. None of this happens unless we build the line to provide the power these mines need. We need to ensure we have a diverse grid that can provide reliable power today, and into the future. That’s why we continue to support new, cleaner sources of power such as wind and run of river. Do these sources produce power at a higher cost than what our heritage assets do? Of course they do. Like most other things, it costs more today to produce power than it did decades ago. But these sources are cleaner than alternatives such as coal or gas and less expensive than building brand new hydroelectric dams. We are investing in projects that are powering our needs today and ensuring we will have the power we need for our future. The unprecedented opportunity in liquefied nat-

ural gas and other growing sectors such as mining must be supported with stable, secure power. This is what we are building. You can’t make these kinds of legacy investments that will benefit all British Columbians without putting pressure on rates. Contrary to some reports, BC Hydro is managing their capital projects within their planned budget. There are a couple of projects over budget but most are under budget. I have been very clear that my mandate, as given to me by the premier, is to minimize rate increases while continuing to make historic investments in Hydro’s infrastructure to grow our economy. I am committed to accomplishing this goal. Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy and Mines, Victoria

Electric gadget usage pushed while price goes up To the editor: Tom Fletcher’s column (July 12 Capital News) reiterates what we have been told for some time. A large part of the future BC Hydro rate increase is caused by the fact that expansion of generating facilities delivers new power at a rate higher than today’s rates. However, the government is bribing people to switch to electric cars, contributing to consumption increases which will cause rate increases for us all.

Provincial consumption is also high because, although the E-Plus contracts with residential customers expired decades ago, the government is choosing to grandfather the “half-price electric heat” offer for political reasons. Also, some large government buildings are still being heated this way. At the same time, the minister is telling us that we are producing more natural gas than we need, so we should be consuming large amounts of energy to compress it and ship it

overseas. Should the first step not be to switch to natural gas-powered cars, natural gas heating for almost all homes where possible, and for all large government buildings? The grant money for electric car purchases should be diverted to incentives for this move. Right now, electric cars are causing the burning of fuels at distant power plants anyway, because that is where our “last watt” comes from. Rein Nienaber, Saanich

Governments must tighten belts, control borrowing To the editor: Yes, the BC Hydro  rate increase tsunami is coming after the earthquake of B.C. government

debt.  This will hit lower income people hard. All levels of government are increasing fees and service rates rather

than raise income taxes on those who can pay more property tax. I don’t want to see any drastic action to increase

job loss, but all governments need to limit their spending growth to the

level of inflation and get borrowing under control. Phil Harrison, Comox

Health a personal responsiblility Express yourself Fletcher from A8 An average $35 monthly rent for wheelchairs is charged at the majority of care facilities, which are contracted by the health authority. Operators charge as they see fit for maintenance, disinfection and replacement of this equipment, for patients who don’t own their own chairs. In September, a $25

fee is to be extended to the few facilities still directly run by Fraser Health, which have aging equipment and no fees. In all facilities, the fee is waived for those who can’t afford it. It would be useful for our politicians to frankly discuss the trend towards contracted health services, and the role of user fees in forcing people to take more responsibility

for maintaining their own health. But that is not what happens. The narrative of dumping frail, impoverished seniors from their wheelchairs has no relationship to reality, but it’s how post-modern political theatre is done.

our. Jeffrey Penz, 39, is charged with the Motor Vehicle Act offences of failing to stop for a yellow light and driving without reasonable consideration. Penz, who has been a trucker for 21 years, said he was approaching the light at Highway 97 and Westlake Road on June 8, 2010 when the light turned yellow. “I was already up to my speed limit,” said Penz at his trial on Wednesday. “I was past the point...I couldn’t stop that rig.” “It would be unsafe for me to hammer on my brakes with a fully loaded truck that close to the intersection,” he later added. A pickup truck cut in front of the trucker he said and he “jogged” his vehicle to the right in the moments leading up to the crash. After impact, Penz remembers seeing a Toyota Corolla in front of his rig. “I remember looking down and…I remember seeing his (driver’s)

eyes as I T-boned him and went over the cliff.” The truck turned onto its side on the embankment near the Kal-Tire and burst into flames. Penz climbed out of his window and then realized his passenger was still in the truck, he said. After getting the passenger out, he found a chain on a flat-bed truck and hooked it to the Corolla. With the help of a pickup truck driver, they were able to pull the car free of the flames. The driver of that car was Ethan Baptiste, who died as a result of the crash. Later in his testimony, Penz said the advanced amber lights were not flashing when he approached the intersection and also said the visor in his truck was down so the sun wouldn’t be in his eyes. However, a police expert earlier testified that Penz should have seen the advanced amber lights and had “ample warning” to stop his vehicle prior to entering the intersection. Sgt. Barry Noonan,

For less than $30 you can set up a misting system for your umbrella or sun shade. These smaller portable systems can be set up in minutes and have you sitting back in your easy chair cooled off and refreshed. We have a variety of small kits that can be temporarily or permanently installed. They are ideal for cooling small patios, gazebos, RV’s garden areas and even pets. Most of the kits come pre-assembled and only require minimal work to put together….just add water! The pet cooling kit is ideal for your four legged friends and are great in the hot sun for some added fun with your pet. How do misting systems work? Misting is one of the most effective and efficient methods available for cooling open outdoor areas. Mist cooling works by forcing water through specially designed misting nozzles to create a fog of ultra fine water droplets. The water droplets quickly evaporate which then in turn cool the surrounding air. When properly designed, a mist cooling system will work with prevailing winds and air movement. A misting system can be combined with misting fans to move mist or cooled air into the cooled zones. In most cases a misting system can reduce the temperature by at least 15 degrees celsius. Make sure you stop by the store and talk to anyone of the staff about your next misting system purchase…

a traffic reconstructionist, estimated how far from the advanced amber warning light the trucker was when the lights began flashing, indicating drivers should slow down for an upcoming light change. He was not able to determine the semi’s speed at the time of the crash. Based on the assumption that the pickup involved in the crash began turning left when the light turned yellow, the location of the impact on the road and information from the pickup’s airbag module, Noonan testified the semi was a minimum of 34 metres north of the advanced warning board when it began flashing (assuming a speed of 60 km/hr). The semi could have been 106 metres north of the warning board if the truck was travelling at a speed of 90 kilometres per hour, he said. The speed limit on that stretch of highway is 80 kilometres per hour, said Noonan. Penz esti-

mates he was doing 80 at the time of the crash. Based on his observations and calculations, Noonan said the tractor trailer driver would have had ample warning to bring his vehicle to a safe stop. Noonan testified there was no evidence of pre-collision braking, and the steering axle dislodged during the initial crash, removing the ability to steer the semi after impact. Under cross examination, he agreed the driver’s sight lines would be affected if a visor was down in the cab of the truck and was questioned about whether he looked into factors that would have obstructed the driver’s view, such as sun. Noonan said there was no indication that sun was an issue in this case, and because of that did not calculate the sun’s location in the sky as part of his report. The trial concluded on Wednesday afternoon. The judge is tentatively scheduled to render a decision on Aug. 2.

Government sets fee for opting out of having a smart meter Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

People who insist on refusing new wireless electrical meters can keep their old mechanical meter as long as it lasts, if they pay a monthly fee, Energy Minister Bill Bennett announced Thursday. Customers can keep their mechanical meters until they break down, their Measurement Canada accuracy seal expires or the customer relocates, the ministry said in a statement. The mechanical meter option is added to an earlier compromise with BC Hydro customers who still don’t have a digital

smart meter, which transmits power consumption and status via radio signals. Customers can have a digital meter with its transmission function turned off, or keep their old meter, as long as they pay the cost of having the meter read manually. Bennett said the cost of meter reading will be about $20 a month. Customers who accept a deactivated smart meter will also pay a fee of about $100 to have it adjusted. The fee to keep a mechanical meter will be higher, because it will require a separate system to manually record and bill for power consumption, Bennett said.

NDP energy critic John Horgan said he is pleased the proposed fees will be reviewed by the B.C. Utilities Commission before being implemented. The opt-out provision should have been made available from the start, Horgan said. BC Hydro reports that 60,000 smart meter installations have been delayed due to customer request, while 1.8 million or 96 per cent of customers now have a functioning smart meter. Some believe radio signals from smart meters are a health hazard, despite the fact that the periodic meter signals represent a tiny fraction of the

radio frequency exposure from a mobile phone.

Bennett said mechanical meters are obsolete,

Road accident proves fatal CONTRIBUTOR

An accident just south of Enderby remains under investigation. A 49-year-old Enderby area woman died Wednesday at about 4 p.m. when her Chevy Astro van collided headon with a semi-truck on Highway 97A, near the Starlight Drive-In. “The incident is still under investigation,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP aspokesperson. y “Officers will be talk-

d l

ing to witnesses and we suspect there will be an autopsy.” A two-year-old child in the van was rescued by witnesses before the vehicle was consumed by fire. The incident apparently occurred when the northbound van swerved and crossed into the southbound lane. Witnesses say it almost struck a motorcycle before crashing into the semi-truck, which was pulling a trailer. “The van spun several times before com-

ing to rest in a ditch. The left side of the vehicle immediately caught on fire,” said Molendyk. Attempts by witnesses to remove the woman motorist were unsuccessful. The child sustained minor injuries while the 36-year-old Peachland man driving the semitruck was taken to hospital with broken wrists. The name of the Enderby area woman was not released before press deadline. Vernon Morningstar

▼ HELP

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Since seeing the destruction caused by the Alberta flooding, several B.C. organizations have stepped up with fundraising concepts to assist those in need. Paula Cowan is hoping to continue that momentum with a fundraiser that will get participants dancing, working out and, ultimately, helping their neighbours to the east. Cowan, franchise owner of Jazzercise West Kelowna, will host an 85-minute jazzercise class by donation at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at SunRidge Community Church (1190 Stevens Rd.). According to Cowan, jazzercise is a full body workout that combines elements of dance, cardio, strength training and yoga. Cowan first tried the activity 20 years ago and was instantly hooked; she’s been an instructor for the past eight years. “It becomes a lifestyle for a lot of people. It’s very well balanced and fun,” said Cowan. “It’s a dance fitness program for anyone and everyone.” The July 20 fundraiser is a combined effort put on by jazzercise instructors throughout the province, said Cowan. All proceeds will go to Red Cross to be dispersed to flood victims in Alberta. For more information about Saturday’s fundraiser, call Cowan at 250-7189929 or visit the Jazzercise Kelowna—Paula Cowan Facebook page. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

here’s a problematic bluebell blooming in many gardens this month. The problem is that it’s an unrecognized, fast-spreading, deep-rooted weed. The Latin name is

Campanula rapunculoides. Its deep, underground rhizome necessitates extensive digging to eradicate. Any piece of root will start a new plant. It also spreads by seed. Because it has a nice stalk of bluebell flowers

many people assume it is a garden-worthy perennial. People moving to an established garden need to check for it carefully and remove any plants immediately to prevent further spreading. Dispose of them in the yard waste bin. Putting them, or any other invasive-rooting plant, into your compost is likely to cause them to be spread throughout your gardens. Home composts generally don’t get hot enough to kill invasive roots or weed seeds. Bluebell weed can come hidden in plants dug up from another person’s garden. It is important to recognize the leaves. Early in the season they look somewhat rounded, unlike the long, pointed leaves on the flower stalks.

to distinguish from the plant’s roots. Keep it in a pot or plant it in an isolated location to grow until you can be sure you eradicated the weed. This process should be used for any plant that you wish to keep that is contaminated with invasive roots. Quack grass also has a spreading root system. It is easier to remove from a plant because it has thin white roots that are easy to pull out from the plant roots and easy to see. However even a tiny segment will re-grow. Spring or fall is the best time to do this bare-rooting operation. Cut the plants back before replanting them as they will not have enough roots to support the top growth. One exception to this rescue procedure is field bindweed, aka morning glory weed. It has one inch white flowers right now and has invaded many area gardens.

Discard any plants that have this nightmare weed growing in them. Keep on the alert for any weeds growing in your plants. Dandelions and other tap-rooted weeds love to hide and grow big inside plants. They are much easier to remove when small. ••• July 31 is the deadline for the early bird draw for the xeriscape garden contest. Details and the entry form are at www.okanaganxeriscape.org.

24-hour film makes New York short list Kristin Froneman BLACK PRESS STAFF

With The Amazing Race Canada making its televised premiere Monday on the shores of Okanagan Lake, locals can also tune into another amazing race. And this one involves an all-Okanagan cast and crew. Kelowna’s Edge Digital Media has just been short-listed as a contender for best film in the 24 Hour Film Race, based out of New York City. Their film, a fourminute short entitled Last Man Mopping, was entered in the international competition, which saw approximately 200 filmmakers from around the world challenged to create a short film in, you guessed it, 24 hours. “The event organizers give you a theme, a prop and an action and you have to write, shoot and edit a film in 24 hours,” said Vernon’s Angela Case, Last Man Mopping producer, who also stars in the film. After hearing about the race, Case, a former Kokanee beer “Glacier Girl,” who is now an on-camera host on the digital Thompson-Okanagan tourist site, RTOWN Communications, set out to recruit a number of professionals she knows through the local film industry to enter. “Everyone was busy with work and their own businesses and a week before the race, Angela asked if I wanted to do this,” said Michael Benedek, the Vernon-based franchise owner of RTOWN.  The former forestry

firefighter and avid outdoorsman would be responsible for the final edit on the film. Case also recruited Kelowna filmmaker Ryan Tebbutt, owner/operator of Edge Digital Media, to direct, and Kelowna’s Chelsea McEvoy, an independent filmmaker, as assistant director and gaffer. Between them, they started racing to get everything in order a week before countdown. With an 11-person team in place, including camera operator/director of photography Kelsey Thompson of Vernon, the group also secured a location when Summerland’s Glenfir Academy, a school built in 1995 that is now closed, became available. The real work began at 7 p.m. May 17 when all teams were given their assignments. The project now had to be written, filmed, edited by 6:59 p.m. the next day. “We were sent an e-mail with the information including the theme,” said Case. “We were literally sitting around the computer in anticipation.” The story had to revolve around time travel, using an egg as a prop and the crumpling of a piece of paper as an action. “The whole team came up with the idea for the script. It came quickly; writing it took about three hours,” said Case. By 10 p.m., the crew began filming in Summerland. Using a state-of-the art Sony FS700 HD camera, everything created had to be original. “Nothing could be copied. We signed off on all the art and nothing

CAMERA operator Kelsey Thompson, of Vernon, filming Last Man Mopping. could be filmed or produced beforehand,” said Case. Last Man Mopping is best described as a scifi head trip involving a janitor (Kelowna’s Zyan Panagopoulos, who Vernon audiences may remember for his Okanagan Zone Drama Festival winning turn in the 2011 play Rabbit Hole at Powerhouse Theatre), who upon performing his mopping duties in a school hallway, suddenly enters a strange sort of portal that goes through time and space. In this strange new land, he encounters two beautiful alien life forms, who have a special task for him. Playing the girls from the future are Case and West Kelowna’s Andreea Bianchi, whose wild hair, makeup and futuristic, fun wardrobe were all donated by Okanagan business people such as Alyssa Myers of AMP Hairstyling, Kristeen Lyseng, SJB makeup artist Sheleah Joy Bradley, and Vernon’s 104 Grey Clothing and Accessories. The comedic elements, especially in how the filmmakers used the

egg prop, are best left to those who look up the film. Let’s just say, it doesn’t look that yummy by the end. After filming into the wee hours of the morning (thanks to Glenfir’s Mary Taylor for allowing the crew to work until 4 a.m.), the raw footage was uploaded from the camera into a hard drive and sent to Benedek to edit. Meanwhile, Armstrong’s Daniel Casson set out to create the film score and sound effects. “It got here at 7 a.m. and I edited throughout the day while Ryan and Angela managed to get some sleep,” said Benedek, who whittled the footage down to just three minutes and 30 seconds, plus 30 seconds of credits, to make the four-minute maximum length. However, reality started blurring with fiction when Benedek encountered a problem exporting the finished film to New York. “I was thinking, all this work for nothing, we just have to get it out,” said Case.

Luckily, the file finally exported at 6:56 p.m. with three minutes to spare, and the group received confirmation the next day that their film did actually arrive. Then it was a waiting game to hear who the 24 film finalists were. “It was supposed to be June 18 and we were told they were having a hard time picking, so we had to wait longer as they narrowed it down from 100 to 24,” said Case. Coincidently, or not, that announcement came on June 24. “I happened to be looking on the website and I scrolled through the list. I didn’t see our name at first, so I went through it again and that’s when I saw Last Man Mopping,” said Benedek. The filmmakers have now been invited to New York City Aug. 17 for the awards gala and screening of the top films.  The 24 Hour Film Race judging panel will be awarding various categories, including best overall film, acting, makeup, editing, story, etc. “Some of our crew is very excited to be going,” said Case, adding prizes include cash and film equipment. The Last Man Mopping contingency is also hoping for local support with an online vote for audience favourite on the 24 Hour Film Race website, www.filmracing. com/24/films2013.htm. Deadline for votes is July 26. All the top 24 films are also available for viewing on the site. Kristin Froneman is a reporter with the Vernon Morning Star.

This is Sara B’s third studio album for a major label and comes highly anticipated.   Her debut Little Voice really put her on the map when it enjoyed the summery smash hit titled Love Song.   Her follow up album three years later, Kaleidoscope Heart, sold at No. 1 on the Billboard charts (but only at No. 13 with

that Bareilles isn’t just a one-hit wonder but I don’t think that will be the case. The fact that she takes three years between releases seems to indicate that Bareilles is not a natural when it comes to writing frothy pure pop songs. Moreover, I don’t think she cares.   Bareilles has become more of a listeners singer-songwriter and the new single off The Blessed Unrest, titled Brave, is only a minor hit so far and it is the only song to feature a hint of a hip hop pulse in its mix.   The rest of this disc comes across as more

autumnal than a summer pop album and The Blessed Unrest is suited more for late night listening than blasting out at a BBQ.   There are plenty of arty and ruminative down tempo songs here including the moody Islands with its hints of Kate Bush and the dour 1000 Times that comes across as a little too desperate.   The song Hercules addresses her lack of inspiration with “its a calcifying crime,” while the plodding Satellite is about her loneliness.   There are a couple of songs that step out

alt-bluegrass on Phoebe where their band offers a jam band outro.   Not Earth shattering or nearly as powerful as the Dixie Chicks catalogue but well worth a listen.   B-

of the doldrums. Little Black Dress features the horns of The Dap Kings for a ’60s retro girl group groove, while the mid-tempo Eden has Prince electro-pop DNA all over it.   Bareilles’ large fan base will scoop this new album up but a less committed listener twitted a humorous one letter notice with ‘Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’ after Billboard left a song by song review. C+  

COURT YARD HOUNDS: AMELITA (COLUMBIA)

This is the second album from sisters Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson while the Dixie Chicks try to figure out if they still exist as a group now that lead singer Natalie Maines has also released her solo album a couple of months ago.   While Maines released a disc of nearly all rock covers, the Court Yard Hounds’ sophomore album crystallizes their country folk roots music with an acoustic bent and angelic harmonies.   The Court Yard Hounds debut of a couple of years ago sold in the top 10 in both Canada and

the USA but it also went hit-less even on country radio. Amelita is a much better album with strong all original songs. I think the key track here is the semi-sarcastic lead off song, Sunshine, which is about a jerk husband not unlike the Dixie Chicks’ main character in Goodbye Earl...that the Chicks killed off in their narrative.   The Court Yard Hounds just don’t have that edge that they had with Maines at the lead vocal and the worst that Sunshine gets is the sarcastic re-post “we call you sunshine.” The sisters really don’t have a mean bone in their bodies and that comes across on these likable and intriguing songs. The Court Yard Hounds sound more authentic on songs like the mellow The World Smiles “…at me, the best things in life are free” and on the philosophical Aimless Upward and “we are seeds with promises to keep”.   However the ladies do step out for a credible country rocker with Rock All Night that Sheryl Crow fans would like, while there is some cool

SAN CISCO: (RCA/SONY)

San Cisco are an Australian indie-pop band who have released a few EPs in Oz and I believe this 12-song debut album is a collection of some of the better songs off those EPs and a few new recordings. As you can imagine this self-titled disc is a real grab bag of songs and styles but mostly this is pure indie pop for fans of the form.   There is the pure breezy pop of Fred Astaire “he’s the man for you” (as opposed to the singer who sings it) and the quirky dance rock of Stella and the Foster The People-like groove found on Wild Things.   Rocket Ship is nonsensical fun lyrically while No Friends is power pop with an attitude.   I kinda like the fact this foursome, with three guys and a girl, met and formed in high school and aren’t from some TV reality show.   An act to watch while they are making sizable hits down under.   Bmooseman19@telus.net

Tower Ranch’s 17th is a challenging signature hole Reporter Kevin Parnell kicks off a new series that will take you on a tour of some of the toughest, most unique and challenging golf holes in the Okanagan Valley with the Kelowna Capital News’ Signature Hole Series. This week, Tower Ranch’s tough, par 5 17th hole. When you reach the 17th hole at Tower Ranch Golf Course, you may be close to finishing the round at the challenging track carved into the hills above Rutland but you are anything but out of the woods. Playing 583 yards from the gold tees, 563 from the blues and 487 from the ladies tees, the long, gradual dog-leg to the right demands three good shots to get to the green. “I love this spot,” said Tower Ranch’s director of operations Neil Schmidt as he stood on the tee box at 17. “It’s late in the round and some people will be pretty fatigued when they get here. It’s a special spot. The best way to play it is to stay to the right side.” A tee shot down the right side cuts off some distance on Tower’s longest par 5. Of the four par 5’s at Tower Ranch, the 17th is the only one that is a genuine three shot hole for the majority of players to get to the green. After navigating the tee shot, with bunkers on the left and to the right, a second shot must also favour the right side as players will try to get to between 150 and 100 yards out for their approach to the green. Stray too far to the right or left on either of your first two shots will bring Tower Ranch’s deep bunkers into play. There’s not much room for er-

ror on the left as the rough slopes down and away to the 18th below and major trouble. The shot into the green also calls for a right side approach. “The green slopes right to left so you have to favour the right side,” said Schmidt. “Too far to the left and your ball can roll right off the green.” Tower is known for its spectacular views, but it is on the 17th green where golfers can pause to watch airplanes come from the airport below. It also provides a glimpse of any number of other courses below, as Sunset Ranch, Shadow Ridge, Kelowna Springs, the Okanagan Golf Club and even a view of Gallagher’s are available. “When you get to the green the views are incredible,” said Schmidt. But on the green players will be well served to remember one local tip that many golf balls will break towards the airport. “Everything breaks to the airport,” said Schmidt. “Everyone thinks it’s going to break toward the lake but I tell people to look for the airport.” Constructed in 2008 by golf course designer Thomas McBroom, the 17th took three entire months to build and the results are a dramatic second to last hole that is challenging and breathtaking. Next Friday in our ser-

ies: The 18th at the Okanagan Golf Club’s Quail Course. ••• You might say the golf god’s were smiling on Harvest Golf Club husband and wife members Bruce and Monica Rauch last week. The couple were playing the Harvest in different groups on July 12 when the rarest of occasions took place. Both husband and wife nailed holes-in-one within a 15 minute span on different holes at the Harvest. First up was Bruce, who stepped to the 11th hole and drained his shot using a nine iron. And about 15 minutes later, Monica used a driver on the 6th hole to fire a hole in one to gold pin, one of the toughest pin placements on the course. “Hole in ones are a rarity at the best of times, however for husband and wife to each have a hole in one, 15 minutes apart, on the same course while playing with different groups is a most unusual accomplishment,” said Tamara Graham, marketing manager at the Harvest. “Odds are thought to be one in millions. We’d like to sincerely thank Mr. and Mrs. Rauch for allowing the Harvest to be a part of this unique event and we wish to congratulate them both, while wishing them many more in the future.” ••• Greg Forbes was the top finishing Kelowna golfer at the B.C. Amateur Golf Championship at the Copper Point Golf Club in Invermere last week. Forbes, an Okanagan Golf Club member, finished with a plus six total after four rounds, finishing in a tie for 24th out of more than 150 players that took part.

Raiders take opener in senior lacrosse final

ALLEN DOUGLAS/CONTRIBUTOR

KELOWNA Raiders’ Braden Renner (right) eludes a Kamloops Rattlers’ checker in Game 1 of the Shaw Cup final Wednesday in Kamloops.

The Kelowna Raiders have the early edge in the battle for Canada’s oldest lacrosse trophy. The Raiders beat the hometown Kamloops Rattlers 12-10 on Wednesday night in the opening game of the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League’s Shaw Cup final. Goaltender Graham Cousins was solid in the Kelowna goal making 36

saves, while Victor Wiens set the tone for a strong defensive effort by the Raiders. Wiens was also dangerous on offence scoring a hat-trick, while Jordan Innes, Nick Evans and Matt Gorges tallied two goals apiece. Braden Renner, Pho Heng and Joe Brown added singles as the Raiders got the jump in the best-of-three final series.

“It was a really good road win for us,” said Raiders coach Doug Manning. “We had strong goaltending from Graham and we had a number of guys, including Victor, who really stepped up for us.” Riley Donahue and Derek Swan paced the Rattlers with three goals apiece. Each team was without a key player for Game

S S r a w 1 as Ryan Sage of thel Raiders had other com-n mitments, while top scor-e er A.J. Lockwood was out of action. 1 Game 2 in the best-of-n three will be played Fri-m day night at MemorialS Arena in Kelowna. c Face off is 8 p.m. l A third game, if need-s ed, will be played Sundayb in Kamloops. t s p

Athletics narrowly miss post-season spot in playoffs By winning their last six games, the Okanagan Athletics gave themselves a fighting chance of sneaking into the B.C. Premier Baseball League playoffs. But when all was said and done, the defending champs didn’t get the

help they needed to latch on to the eighth and final post-season berth. Heading into the last week of play, the A’s (2325) were battling both the Vancouver Cannons and Nanaimo Pirates for the last playoff spot. The Athletics needed the Cannons to lose just one of their last three games, while two Na-

naimo losses would have also been enough to get them into the playoff dance. Neither happened, as Vancouver swept its final three games, while the Pirates took two from North Shore to leave the A’s on the outside looking in. Okanagan finishes the season in ninth place, a

game back of Vancouver (24-24) and two behind Nanaimo (25-23). “You hate having your fate in other’s team’s hands,” said A’s coach Evan Bailey,” but at the same time, we wouldn’t have been in that position if we’d have won a few more games early in the season. That’s the way it goes.” The A’s undoing this season was a horrendously slow start which saw them go 5-17 over the first 22 games. Okanagan finished strong with 18 wins in their last 26, but it was too little, too late. Due to an injury to last year’s ace, James Walker, and the occasional absence of Morgan Lofstrom who played with the national junior team, the A’s pitching staff struggled for much of the season. “Offensively we had the second best team in the league and defensively we were very good, too,

third best in errors,” Bailey added. “But our pitching didn’t help us. If we have Walker, that’s probably six more wins and we’re into the playoffs easily. I thought we did the best with what we had.” Still, Bailey said the A’s success can’t simply be measured by their record in 2013.

All it takes is lessons and courage to swim across lake

When the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim takes place tomorrow in Kelowna, several courageous swimmers will be tackling Canada’s largest and longest running open water swim event for the first time. Since its beginning in 1949 as part of the Kelowna Regatta, the 2.1 kilometre Across the Lake Swim has focused on encouraging people to challenge themselves to new swim goals, whether it be crossing the lake for the first time, or trying to swim a faster time than in previous years. This year is no different and the 65th anniversary of the swim has never been more popular. The event was capped at 650 swimmers and was sold out by the beginning of June with over 300 of those swimmers attempting the swim for the first time. Among the newcomers are two youngsters

Dominic Teichroeb who have been enrolled in the Across the Lake Swim Society’s Learn to Swim program at the H20 Centre. The pair will be attempting the swim accompanied by their swim coaches. Dominic Teichroeb, 9, attended the swim lesson program put on at H20 for Grade 3s this year and is excited to show his family and friends that he can step up and do something that nobody in his family has ever done. Halie Derickson, also 9, participated in the swim lesson program at H20

HALIE DERICKSON (above) and Dominic Teichroeb, both 9, attended swim lessons at H2O. this year and is hoping to make it the entire distance across the lake and will be swimming alongside her mother, also attempting the swim for the first time. Another first time swimmer is Kelowna’s city manager Ron Mattiussi. “Three years ago I was watching my family snorkeling in Maui and felt bad that I was too afraid to try,” said Mattiussi.

“I came home and took swimming lessons at the Parkinson Centre. The Across the Lake Swim is my opportunity to once again challenge my fears and by doing that live life to its fullest. Life is too short to sit on the sidelines watching others have fun.” Also swimming this year are a legally blind swimmer, a cancer survivor who’s challenged

Rockets alumni in town on weekend Former and current members of the Kelowna Rockets will be gathering in Kelowna this weekend to raise money for the Kelowna General Hospital as part of the popular Rockets Alumni Weekend. Some of the most popular Rockets in the club’s history will be back in Kelowna including Josh Gorges, the Kelowna native and star of the Montreal Canadiens. Rockets players will join community members teeing off at the Har-

vest Golf Club on Friday morning in the 13th annual Rockets Alumni Golf Tournament. Then on Sunday the players will hit the ice at the Capital News Centre (5 p.m.) for the 12th Annual Alumni Hockey Game. Among the confirmed golfers for the Friday event are Cody Almond, Tyson Barrie, Jamie Benn, , Brandon McMillan and Tyler Myers as well as players from a few years earlier in the Rockets history such as Jason

Deleurme and Vern Fiddler. Adam Brown, Spencer Main, Evan Bloodoff and Brett Lyon are among the other former Rockets that are back in Kelowna.

Championships in Chilliwack earlier this month, coming up just short of a provincial championship after an impressive run at the girls fastball event. After posting a 3-1 record in the round robin against some very stiff competition, the Homers started the playoff round with a 11-6 win against the Parksville Rage. The team then went on to defeat both of the top two seeds in the tournament with wins over the Penticton Power and the Gibson Crushers. The three wins advanced the Homers to the finals where they again met the Gibson Crushers with the B.C. Championship title on the line.

Ogopogo team members strong at Revelstoke swim meet

After just completing an entire week filled with laser tag, cliff jumping, movie nights, extreme relays and intense dry-land training, everyone in the Ogopogo Summer Swim Club had earned a nice weekend off to relax. However, there is no rest for the wicked, which is why the Ogopogo team headed up to Revelstoke to compete in their last meet before regionals.  “Although the team was obviously tired, we had a team goal, which was to continue our winning streak and win the entire meet, ” said Ogopogo coach Lucas Stringer.   The weekend was a battle between the Kelowna Ogopogos, rivals Salmon Arm, and the home team, Revelstoke.  After the first day, Revelstoke was leading the way, with the Ogo’s and Salmon Arm trailing close behind.  On the second day of the two-day meet the Ogos rallied, having some outstanding individual swims and everyone stepping D up on team relays.   The Ogopogos were able to finish first overall for the girls team, and placed third on the boys side. Keeping things interest-

gan is an all-around fantastic swimmer who is provincially ranked in 5 of a possible 6 events.  For div 5 girls Ealin Ran earned herself a Silver aggregate after a great swim meet. Based on her best time, Ealin is ranked 3rd in the province for 50 free, along with Div 5 teammate Emalie Schueler who is ranked second in 50 Free and 100 Free.

In addition to winning aggregates, three Ogos were able to achieve the daunting task of securing 100 personal best times for all of their events at the meet. Those stand out swimmers are Matt Macdonald, Teagan Wright, and Ryne Van VlietBrown. Overall it was a fantastic swim meet filled with lots of excitement and fast swimming.

Furthermore, swimmers Denby Huber, Emalie Schueler, Madison Dickie, and Ealin Ran teamed up to smash the Div 5 girls 200 medley relay meet record. All four girls had amazing swims, giving them a final time of 2:23.7. Next meet for Ogos will be the BCSSA Regional Championships in Penticton, Aug. 3 and 4.

OGOPOGO Swim Ckub member Flyn Huber was the division 1 boys gold aggregate winner at a meet last weekend in Revelstoke. ing, Salmon Arm won the boys award, placed third on the girls, and Revelstoke placed second for both boys and girls team.  Despite it being so close, the Ogopogos emerged as the top overall team: a well-deserved victory after such a hard week.  On the girls side, Andrea Kraetzer took the gold aggregate for div 1 girls, winning all but one of her events. Andrea is currently ranked second in 50 breaststroke for the

entire province for div 1 girls.    Similarly, teammate Flyn Huber won all but one of his individual events, which earned him a gold aggregate for div 1 boys.  Flyn is ranked first in the province for three separate events (50 free, 50 back, 100IM).    For division 3 girls Kennedy Dickie (sSilver) and Rachel Schueler (bronze) teamed up to take the silver and bronze aggregates overall. Both

girls had great swims that place them top 3 in the province for their respective events. On the div 3 boys side, Matt MacDonald won a Silver aggregate, after winning two of his possible 4 events.   Matt is currently the second fastest div 3 boy in the entire province for his best event (50 fly).  Winning the gold aggregate for div 4 boys is Logan Lalonde, who managed to win all of his events this weekend.  Lo-

Views out over lakes and valleys provide context to our busy lives and help with perspective; with getting the whole picture, instead of focusing just on the here and now. Celebrate Canada Parks Day this Sat., July 20 by heading to a park for the day. I joined a regional district hike up into Rose Valley Regional Park a few weeks ago and, as always, I found the views after that tough climb, simply awe-inspiring and exhilarating. Those along for the hike were there for a variety of reasons: to keep in shape, get fit, breathe some fresh air, learn something new, meet dif-

I found I was able to do all those things, and I managed to get re-acquainted with several people I hadn’t seen in years, as well. With its rocky, hilly terrain, that park has an immense variety of different ecosystems, from damp and marshy to sere and rocky, with almost everything in-between, so there’s a huge variety of wildflowers. That draws a wide variety of insects, birds and wildlife, so you have a very biodiverse slice of the Okanagan there. Add to that the lakeshore habitat provided by Rose Valley Reservoir, and the opportunities for canoeing and fishing in the reservoir itself, and this park is a real gem.

One stop shop for energy savings

This year the regional district has re-defined/ restored the trails and created some new ones, and is working on directional and interpretive signage, which will make it a much more enjoyable park for newcomers to visit. Benches at scenic outlooks are a restful delight. Such regional parks as this and the ever-popular Mission Creek Greenway, Scenic Canyon, Kalamoir, Hardy Falls, Glen Canyon, Robert Lake, Woodhaven Nature Conservancy and the new Johns Family Nature Conservancy are all gems of parkland; bits of wild land that will still be there for our grandchildren to enjoy, in their natural state—some more natural than others, of course. With several communities working together to acquire and maintain these larger parks—

The Nicest Topless Glass Railing in the World!

Railing and Superdeck deck

It can be fun playing tourist in your own valley

S

ometimes, trying to simply make the best of what is can prove to be the best decision of all. That theory is not something new or earth-shattering, but it seems like thunderbolt-thinking when it’s a scenario that involves you. For a variety of reasons including no passports, a lack of surplus funds, a yard that was screaming for some long overdue maintenance, and a number of other things on the schedule, Tez and I wound up playing tourists in our own Valley last week. And we had a fabulous time doing so. For years now, I have supported the theory that since millions of people travel long distances to visit the Okanagan Valley during their summer holidays—why would I want to leave here? Certainly, I can understand the allure of warmer climates such as Hawaii or Mexico during the winter months, but leaving Kelowna for such locations during the summer just seems odd. Part of that philosophy may have been supported over the years by economics and other issues; however there has always been a significant level of logic to it Born and raised in the

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge Okanagan, I am familiar with all the many wonderful nooks and crannies and special places worthy of visiting in our own paradise. Even as a youngster I realized that Kelowna, and the rest of the Okanagan, truly is a wondrous place to live and play. I did not have to look far to be made aware of it. All I had to do was live here during the summer and wait for the throngs of tourists to prove it. I remember well the summers when the population of small town Kelowna doubled or tripled with tourists. The blue and white B.C. license plates were suddenly outnumbered by a multitude of plates from Alberta, Saskatchewan and the United States, So, last week Tez and I spent time enjoying our yard and visiting with friends. However, recognizing it was way too easy to simply wind up working in the yard all week— we decided to plan a brief getaway.

We decided to simply play tourist in our own town, or in our case, valley. We dug out the various travel info brochures we had compiled and kept toying with where to go. However, every time we started to plan our sojourn my brain kept going to one of my favourite areas—Osoyoos. Tez decided to check out overnight options including camp grounds and hotels. She spent hours on various discount travel

sites such as expedia.ca, Travelocity, and hotwire. com looking at options. Eventually we simply picked a few hotels and made some phone calls. It is staggering just how much hotel rooms can cost now, and with limited dollars, we were having to check around for a great deal.

We were surprised with how many hotels up and down the valley had vacancies. Eventually we were successful, made a call and reserved a room in Osoyoos for the following night. With binoculars and camera in hand, and the attitude of playing tourists, we slowly meandered down Highway 97 stopping at beaches in Peachland, Summerland, and other spots, and even pulled over regularly to let travellers in a hurry zoom past. We toured campgrounds in search of an idea where to stay for her next holiday (in August). The hotel we picked would not have rooms available until 3 p.m. but that did not matter as we enjoyed a visit to the beach while the rooms were prepared. It took us less than 10 minutes on the waterfront to feel like we were truly on a holiday. Simply getting away from the familiar house and yard makes the mental shift easier. And the warm lake, beach chairs and cold beer made it even easier to adapt. The benchmark moment for both of us was when we wandered about 100 feet offshore into the warm water and turned around to look back at our hotel.

Spread out on the sandy shore with a gorgeous blue sky behind it and swaying lush trees—I turned to Tez and said, “If I took a photo right now, do you think anyone would guess we were not in Mexico or somewhere like that?” Tez just grinned and said, “I guess we have done it—successfully got away —and it took less than two hours to do so.” The following day we took just as long to meander home, checking out various touristy spots on route. We were constantly reminded why it is that so many travel so far to come here.  Sometimes the supposed “sunshine tax” we pay here really is worth every cent.  Charlie Hodge is a freelance writer based in Kelowna.

Badlands offer otherworldly experience CONTRIBUTOR

A HIKER sets off on the Castle Trail in the Badlands.

Amy Bertrand



Delivering an experience of a lifetime every time.

1880 Town, the Badlands feel like they haven’t been spoiled by human hands. Rather, they’ve been shaped by years of geological events. Ebbing and flowing of waters and harsh winds have created these towers, ridges and pinnacles of rock and mud, streaked with shades

of gold, pink and red and softened by grasslands filled with prairie dogs. Just after passing through the entrance to the Badlands, you are greeted with a giant crater of peaks and valleys. The formations are so incredible they led Theodore Roosevelt to say the

THE CRACKED earth in parts of the Badlands evidence of the desert conditions.

Badlands “seem hardly properly to belong to this Earth.” Indeed, much of it seems otherworldly. Though many roadside stops offer vast views of deep canyons and many scary moments for moms and dads of little ones who want to look over the edge, other areas

are like nature’s largest playground. Many of the formations rise up from areas near parking lots and don’t go too high. So parents can’t rest fairly easily letting their kids climb up, down and around them. The Badlands National Park has several hikes, mostly small ones on boardwalks, but the Castle Trail runs 5 miles through the middle of the park. I knew my 6-yearold couldn’t do 10 miles round-trip, so we set out to hike for an hour and a half and then turn around. At one point we ventured off the trail to check out what looked like caves. As we were heading back to the trail, my 8-year-old son saw a rock that caught his eye. “This is heavier than a rock,” he told me. “What if it’s a fossil?” We had just come from a ranger talk about fossils in the park. Turns out, according to Ranger Alison Shoup, the Badlands area was established to protect the plethora of fossils there. The region was actually a sea during the time of the dinosaurs,

Sea creatures Bad Lands from A29 so the oldest fossils you find are those of sea creatures. Over time, the area dried up, becoming more like a tropical forest. By this time, the dinosaurs had left the Earth, so the bulk of the fossils in the Badlands are from prehistoric mammals. During our talk, she showed us real fossils vs. casts. The real fossils had a certain feel to them. Hmmm, I thought: What if this rock my son discovered is a real fossil? Turns out, it was. We took it to the fossil lab at the visitors center (it’s illegal to keep fossils),

where rangers there told us it was quite a find. They also told us we should have left it there for paleontologists to examine (we didn’t realize that!). Park officials later confirmed that it was the base of a skull and vertebra of a prehistoric mammal, but that’s really all they could tell. Julie Johndreau, public information officer for the park, said the park receives about 150 fossil reports each year from visitors. Most turn out to be fossils. “We diligently try to send a letter back to everyone who files a fossil report through us. We make every effort to fol-

stopping, but you’ll want to stop at the various overlooks and maybe even for animals. Though there were reports of bison, we never saw them. What we did see were deer, bighorn sheep and prairie dogs, lots and lots of chirping prairie dogs. Their prairie dog towns sit right next to the road, and they don’t seem to be a bit afraid of cars. Besides hiking and stopping to gawk at the animals, the park offers

several other activities. Visitors Center: Located at park headquarters, the Ben Reifel Visitor Center features a 95seat, air-conditioned theater, the fossil lab where you watch scientists at work and many exhibits. The interactive displays include information on the paleontology of the White River Badlands and how the Badlands were formed. Special programs: Like most national parks, the Badlands provide a

Junior Ranger program in which kids complete activities and a workbook to earn their Junior Ranger badge. The park rangers also offer guided hikes, talks, activities and evening programs. We especially loved the nightsky viewing. The sky in the Badlands isn’t polluted with man-made lights, so you have darkness. Real, complete darkness. On this moonless night, the only illumination came from millions of miles away: stars and

a few planets. Wrapped up under blankets, we watched as the rangers gave us a quick tutorial of the stars, using a special green light to point to them. It’s much like the Science Center’s Planetarium show, only this is the real thing. After, we used two high-powered telescopes to look at star clusters and Jupiter. And then I had to pry my husband away.

Right next to the visitors center, you’ll find Cedar Pass Lodge and campground, operated by Forever Resorts. The lodge offers rental cabins, a restaurant and a surprisingly good gift shop with Rlocally made items including Northern Plains Native American crafts. We stayed in a rental cabin ($137 a night, cedarpasslodge.com). The rooms, with wood walls, floors and vaulted ceilings, were quite spacious and just updated this year with eco-friendly, Gold LEED standards. We also had a television, mini refrigerator, microwave and air-conditioning. But best of all: We had a large front porch with three lodgepole pine deck chairs, perfect for staring out at the Badlands formations in front of us. Certain rooms are ADA accessible and pets are allowed for a fee.

With few other choices around, we ate at the lodge’s restaurant several times. We loved the Sioux Indian Taco, made from special fried bread and seasoned bison meat. From our hotel, a 40-minute drive through the park took us to the famed Wall Drug in the town of Wall, S.D. Let’s just say we didn’t escape the touristy kitsch after all. From a giant rabbit you can “ride” to animatronic singing cowboys, this place has it all, and sells it all. It’s fun, if you don’t take it too seriously, and the fried fish sandwich was actually delicious.

Audi A3 sedan challenges the premium compact market Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

CONTRIBUTED

AUDI has a new entry in the premium compact class — the four-door A3 sedan, which arrives in Canada next April as a 2015 model. It will replace the A3 hatchback, which is currently on sale in Canada as a 2013 model.

g 5 n i n i Rema

BUDAPEST, Hungary—Audi is looking to grow its small car sales in Canada when the new A3 sedan arrives here next April as a 2015 model. Now in its third generation, the A3 sedan will replace the A3 hatchback currently on sale in Canada and go head-to-head against the new Mercedes-Benz CLA in a growing compact luxury segment of the market. This new sedan is being introduced to appeal to two particular markets—China and North America. China will have its own production plant, while the rest of the world will get vehicles built in Hungary at a factory in

Gyor, which is also the largest engine-production plant in the world. This facility currently builds 1.9 million engines a year for both Volkswagen and Audi. Although no prices have been announced, look for the A3 sedan to start in the $32,000 range and become the new entry-level vehicle in the Audi Canada lineup. Currently, the A3 makes up about 20 per cent of worldwide sales for Audi and the aim with the new sedan is to grow those numbers significantly. Size-wise, the new A3 sedan is 24 cm shorter than the current A4 model. It is 4,456 mm in length,

MOTORING

Canadian designed A3 Audi from B1 sitting on a wheelbase of 2,637 mm. Unless you’re a true ‘Audi-ophile’, you would be hard pressed to tell the two models apart at a quick glance. Nevertheless, Audi thinks there will be a growing market for the new A3 sedan, in the 3,000 units per year range, as value-conscious buyers look at the starting price of the A4 (currently $37,800 for the 2013 model) and compare the two. Power for the A3 sedan will be in the form of three turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices—a 1.8-litre TFSI, a 2.0-litre TFSI and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel. The 1.8-litre TFSI and 2.0-litre diesel will be front-drive models, while the 2.0-litre TFSI with quattro all-wheel drive is expected to be the bulk model for Canada. At the launch in Budapest, we sampled a couple of vehicles with six-speed manual transmissions, but Canadian vehicles. will come only with a sixspeed S tronic doubleclutch gearbox. Although it wasn’t available for test drives, Audi will also offer a high-performance S3 model in Canada, which will feature a 300 hp 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine. Designed by Quebec native Dany Garand, the A3 sedan is every bit an Audi with its signature grille making it instantly recognizable. However, it

is a totally new car, built on a new lightweight platform and doesn’t have one single piece of sheet metal in common with the current A3 hatchback. Audi engineers have worked long and hard on weight reduction for improved handling and fuel efficiency and the car comes in at a sleek 2,755 lb). With a drag coefficient of 0.29 and the lightweight body, fuel economy and handling are first rate, although we’ll have to wait for a S3 to get our hands on a true sports sedan rather than a pre-

mium compact family car. Inside, the interior lives up to Audi’s reputation as the builder of one of the finest cabins in the world. I drove both a 1.8-litre TFSI and a 2.0-litre TDI along with a couple of other models and all exhibited refined, polished-looking interiors that would not be out of place in the luxury class. Seating is comfortable up front, less so in the cramped rear seat area, but one must remember this is a compact car, not a mid-size. Cargo capacity in the trunk is 425 litres and 880 litres with the rear

THE INTERIOR of the Audi A3 sedan is stylish as one would expect in an Audi. However, many of the popular features are optional, which will push the price considerable north of the $32K starting price.

THERE IS generous legroom in the front, even for a

six-footer, but the rear seat area is somewhat cramped as one would expect in a compact car.

seats folded. The leather seats are comfortable and supportive. Our test vehicles had the optional seven-inch touch screens with navigation and they worked flawlessly, getting us to pre-arranged destinations without a hitch. Production of the 2.0-litre TFSI engine has not yet begun so we weren’t able to sample that model. The 1.8 TFSI produces 180 hp and powers from 0-100 km/h in a quick 7.3 seconds, according to Audi. Meanwhile, fuel consumption is rated at 5.6L/100 km using European test results. Audi says the 150 hp 2.0-litre TDI does the

0-100 km/h run in 8.4 seconds, while sipping diesel fuel at a rate of 4.1L/100 km. We drove a mix of urban and rural roads in and around Budapest and the cars ate up the kilometers with no fuss or muss. The diesel and gasoline models with the S tronic transmission shifted smoothly, either automatically or with the optional steering-wheel mounted paddles. Steering is electrically assisted and a bit too light for my liking. An optional feature will be Audi’s magnetic ride system that offers Auto, Comfort or Sport mode depending upon the driving situation. Audi is packing a lot

of other high-tech features into the A3 sedan including available LED headlights, a first in the pre-

mium compact class, according to Audi. See Audi B4

Premium hatch offers proven hybrid tech Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

The 2013 Lexus CT 200h is unique in the entry luxury car segment as the only hatchback to offer a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain. Introduced in 2011, the CT 200h joins four other models in the Lexus lineup offering hybrid power, but it is the only hatchback along with a group of three sedans and an SUV. I’ve always liked hatchbacks as many Canadians do, unlike our American neighbours who are just starting to catch on to the utility that they can offer. Hatchbacks, or “sportbacks” as Lexus likes to call them, have always been a tough sell south of border, but indications recently are that the tide is turning and the five-door models are starting to

move off dealer lots in larger numbers. The Lexus CT 200h is more than just a North American model as it goes head-to-head with two other luxury hatches, the Audi A3 and Volvo C30, here and elsewhere in the world. The sporty Ford C-MAX has recently joined the hybrid hatch party, but it is not in the same premium category as the Lexus CT 200h. What sets the CT 200h apart from the Audi and Volvo hatchback models is its hybrid technology, proven after years of service in the Toyota Prius and other Lexus models. The result is outstanding fuel economy, particularly in urban driving situations. Toyota/Lexus is the world leader in the production of gas-electric hybrids having passed the three million mark in sales

of the Prius model worldwide at the end of June. In Canada alone, Toyota sold nearly 10,000 Priuses in calendar year 2012 and 1,640 Lexus CT 200h units. This year, hybrid sales have been off somewhat, perhaps because of relatively low gasoline prices with sales of 3,927 Priuses and 506 CT 200h models at the half-way mark of the calendar year. The CT 200h is the point of entry into the Lexus lineup, starting at $31,450. Lexus hopes it will broaden the appeal of the brand to a new segment of the buying public—upwardly mobile, eco-savvy urban drivers who want to move up to the luxury segment. But while the CT starts at just north of $31K, it doesn’t take much for the price to climb near

Synthetic leather lighter, eco-friendly Lexus from B5 the $40K mark. Our tester included just one option group, the F Sport Package adding $5,950 to bring the final tally to $39,848, including $1,995 freight and PDI. Granted, the F Sport Package is an extensive one, including features like a three-spoke F Sport steering wheel, front and rear performance dampers, special 17-inch alloy wheels, sport seats, rear spoiler, aluminum sport pedals, F Sport scuff plates, metal interior trim and other added goodies. This is one of four option packages and a new one for 2013. Mechanically, the CT 200h is very similar to the Prius, using the advanced Hybrid Drive System featuring a 98 hp 1.8-litre Atkinson Cycle inline four-cylinder gasoline engine, a hightorque permanent magnetic electric drive motor, a powerful nickel metal hydride battery system and a sophisticated power management system. In total, the horsepower rating is 134. It has four driving modes—EV, Eco, Normal and Sport. Even driving in the more performance-oriented Sport mode, the CT 200h is far from a sports sedan. Nevertheless, it is a step ahead of the Prius models in driving enjoy-

ment. It boasts a 0-100 km/h time just a touch above the nine second mark and a sportier ride and handling thanks in part to its low centre of gravity and the suspension upgrades. This is the third time I’ve driven a CT model since its introduction and my experience is similar to before—the power is adequate for most situations except perhaps for very steep hills. But power is not going to be top-of-mind for buyers of this particular car. They will be looking for outstanding fuel economy and the clean green technology incorporated in this Lexus. In Sport mode, the steering is more direct, throttle response is more immediate and traction and stability control are less intrusive. If you want a more reserved driving response, dial in the Eco, EV or Normal modes. EV uses battery power only for up to one to two kilometres and speeds up to 40 km/h. Eco model adjusts air conditioning settings and throttle for best possible fuel economy. I found the Normal setting where I spent most of my driving time, however. The front-engine, front-wheel drive CT has seating for five, but four

THE LEXUS CT 200h makes extensive use of eco materials, including NuLuxe synthetic leather that is used on the base model. It is much lighter than real leather and the manufacturing process produces 65 per cent fewer C02 emissions.

MOTORING

Comfy for 4 Lexus from B7 would be most comfortable. This is a compact so rear seat legroom is at a premium, particularly when the front seats are at their rearmost setting. The F Sport bucket seats did not work for me at all— my butt is just too large for the highly bolstered seat cushion, and I found it difficult to get in and out of the car. Personally, I would pass on the F Sport package, but I acknowledge there are those who would

THE CT 200H has seating for five passengers, but four would be more comfortable. Rear legroom is cramped in this compact model. LORNE DRURY/CONTRIBUTOR

want the snazzy features included in the F Sport model. Lexus sees the CT as largely an urban vehicle and one highlight is its tight turning circle of 11.2 m (36.9 ft)—ideal for tight parking lots and congested city driving. Engineers went to great lengths to reduce weight in the CT and it comes in at 1,420 kg (3,130 lb). The hood and rear hatchback are lightweight aluminum and high-strength steel is used extensively on the body. The rear hatch is easy to open and close and the 60/40 split rear seats fold down to enlarge the cargo area that is 405 litres (14.4 cu ft) behind the rear seats. The CT is loaded with safety features, including eight standard airbags, an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), brake assist (BA), traction control and vehicle stability control. Inside, the car is nicely finished, but may not have the same premium feel as more higher end luxury models. Nevertheless it is pleasant, well outfitted but a somewhat tight fit as one would expect in a compact. Of course, being a hybrid the best part of the CT is the fuel economy. It is rated at 4.5/4.8/4.6L/100 km city/hwy/combined, which is truly hard to beat. In my time with the car, I consistently averaged in the 5.5-5.9L/100 km range. In short, the Lexus CT 200h is not an inexpensive car, but if you want outstanding fuel economy in a premium compact vehicle, take a look at this hybrid hatchback that is the entry point into the Lexus brand.

Body Style: five-door premium hatchback. Drive Method: front-engine, front-wheel drive. Engine: 1.8-litre gasoline Atkinson cycle DOHC four-cylinder engine combined with an electric-drive motor (134 total system horsepower). Cargo Volume: 405 litres (14.4 cu ft.) behind rear seats. Fuel Economy: 4.5L/100 km (63 mpg) city, 4.8L/100 km (59 mpg) highway, 4.6L/100 km (61 mpg) combined. Price: $31,450. As tested $39,848.45 including $1,950 freight and PDI. Web: www.lexus.ca

NOTICE OF INTENT T13-074 GLYCOL BLENDING UNIT FOR KELOWNA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (YLW) Notice is hereby given by the City of Kelowna of its intent to contract with Vestergaard Company Inc of Illinois to provide a PreMixer for the blending of glycol and water. The contract will not exceed $66,250 EUR exclusive of taxes but including all other expenses for implementation. The City has chosen not to call for supplier proposals for the following reasons: 1. Unit has CSA approval. 2. Available for installation by 01 September 2013. 3. Rather than an inline refractomer, this unit has a positive displacement pump which blends proportionally by volume; thus allowing a more accurate measurement of concentration. 4. Unit is in fully enclosed, climate controlled portable cabinet. 5. Unit is portable which is a YLW requirement. 6. Unit has proven reliable. 7. Parts available within 24 hours if necessary.

Housing market struggling to bounce back

T

he summer months usually bring home buyers from all over to our sunny Okanagan to shop for recreation property or relocation, but numbers are showing a slight cool down for a time that should be in high swing for sales. A Bank of Montreal study suggests roughly one in five potential first-time homebuyers have postponed their purchase since Finance Minister Jim Flaherty introduced his new lending

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

rules a year ago. Only a mere 17 per cent of sales last month were first time home buyers. Flaherty announced last year that Ottawa would reduce the maximum amortization period to 25 years from 30, and will cut the maximum

amount of equity homeowners can take out of their homes in a refinancing to 80 per cent from 85 per cent. Also, the availability of government-backed mortgages will be limited to homes with a purchase price of less than $1-million, and the maximum gross debt service ratio will be fixed at 39 per cent, and the maximum total debt service ratio at 44 per cent. “It did take a bit of steam out of the market because it essential-

ly forced quite a number of potential buyers, especially first-time buyers, to wait a while longer,” BMO’s chief economist Doug Porter said in an interview. So just when homeowners now start to consider that the market is on the cusp of stabilization after several years of disappointing sale prices and escalating inventory, Canada’s sales numbers started to reflect a cool down possibly across the country, likely due to Flaherty’s imposed ad-

‘‘

OVER THE PAST YEAR WE HAVE SEEN THE MARKET PLUMMET.

justments to our mortgages rules made over a year ago. Results show that the larger cities such as Toronto and Vancouver have

been feeling a slight cool down in the market in recent months, but this cool down has spread across Canada affecting some of the more booming cities such as Saskatoon and Regina. It has also been said that that the recent upward drift in mortgage rates could continue to dampen housing demand in the second half of the year, especially in highpriced markets such as Toronto and Vancouver. A year ago, David Madani, an economist

with Capital Economics, predicted a drastic 25 per cent drop in housing prices across Canada, perhaps Madani wasn’t that far off. Over the past year we have seen the market plummet, have high hopes coupled with large let downs. Perhaps we have seen the new day, the years of high sale prices and a booming market are behind us. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.

OF PRIME INTEREST

Mortgage payments won’t double if interest rates go up It’s a common question: Will my mortgage payment really double when interest rates return to normal?’  The answer is no. Let’s look at the simple math. A mortgage for $200,000 at today’s low rates of 3.25 percent with five-year fixed term and 25-year amortization results in a payment $972 per month. At the end of the fiveyear term the balance is $171,762, unless you have made extra payments so your balance is less. The real question now is what will interest rates be in five years?  Since no crystal ball has the magic answer, let’s look at a few possibilities.

At 4.50 per cent, the payment is $1,083 per month. This is based on the remaining 20-year amortization. So we’re not near double yet. At 5.25 per cent the payment is $1,152 per month, still using the remaining 20-year amortization.  At 7.5 per cent , more than double the original rate, the payment is $1,372 per month. While this is a substantial increase, it still is not double whatyou are now paying. So what is a normal interest rate anyway? Historical data on interest rates are based on bank posted rates since in-

terest rates on mortgages can vary so much.  During the last eight years, it is most likely no one has paid bank posted rates so these figures are artificially high. Our crystal ball says 4.5 per cent in five years is a conservative guesstimate to use when calculating your mortgage payment five years down the road. In 2006 when the economy was going gangbusters and inflation was almost six per cent, the best five-year fixed rate was between 5.14 per cent and 5.25per cent. There are no current indicators that suggest the economy will be back to those levels in five years. 

Most politicians would lose their jobs if mortgage rates rose to 7.5 per cent in five years.

‘‘

THERE ARE NO CURRENT INDICATORS THAT SUGGEST THE ECONOMY WILL BE BACK TO THOSE LEVELS IN FIVE YEARS

So why do so many rumours seem to suggest that payments will double?  Our experience has been these are usually

voiced by high level land developers who are used to commercial mortgages with interest only payments. If you make an interest only payment and interest rates double, then it stands to reason that the payment will double.  Some people remember the early 80s when we had double-digit inflation and then double-digit interest rates Here are some suggestions to minimize payment shock should rates rise. Apart from the obvious (buying a cheaper house, putting more down or earning more) these suggestions help will lessen the effect.

• Lock into a longer term fixed rate—like 5- or 10year fixed. • Inflate your payment using your prepayment options. • Pay down other debt to free up cash for your mortgage. • Invest the equivalent of 10 per cent to 20 per cent of your mortgage payment in a TSFA that you can tap if needed • Choose the longest possible amortization   (30 years) and then set your payments to match a 25year amortization (If your payment increases and cash gets tight, you can lower your payment to the original amount). • Get an adjustable rate mortgage with a fixed

payment. (Like the above example this protects you only during your term, not after maturity. Payments reset at maturity.  • Utilize a skip-a-payment option—if offered by your lender. (This should generally be a last resort because it increases your interest costs and lengthens your amortization). As always, check your numbers balanced against your own personal situation.  One size does not fit all, especially with mortgages Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250-4708324) Darwyn Sloat (250718-4117) Kristin Rosdal (250-878-3007).
