The upper portion of Knox Mountain Park Drive will be closed as of today as wildfire season kicks into high-gear in the Central Okanagan. Tuesday saw a forest fire start and wrap up before noon as residents in rural Glenmore noticed a spot burning on a knoll behind Scenic Road. The day continued with a blaze below Greata Ranch between Summerland and Peachland. Both fires are suspected to have been human caused. “We had 10 personnel on site (Greata Ranch),” said Melissa Welsh, fire information officer with the Wildfire Management Branch, who characterized it as a “smoldering ground fire” when she spoke with the Capital News Wednesday evening. Called in at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the fire reached 0.9 hectares in size and required 15 wildfire firefighters working through to midnight to extinguish. The Central Okanagan Regional District and City of Kelowna began tightening the reins Wednesday morning, shutting down potential fire hazards by banning campfires and closing off a section

Kelowna firefighters were able to snuff out a bush fire in Glenmore on Tuesday with the help of forest service crews and air support. The blaze broke out about 10:20 a.m. in a rural area near 2130 Scenic Rd. in Glenmore. Patricia Vangolen and David Spicer were taking a break from their tandem bicycle ride along Scenic Road when Vangolen noticed a plume of black smoke. Spicer attempted to see if anyone was at the nearby Glenmore fire hall, before he phoned 911. It was around that time Don Wirch’s family was alerted to the fire by a neighbour. “They told us they’d called 911,” said Don’s 20-year-old daughter, Rebekah Wirch. “We just ran out, grabbed some garden hoses and started spraying it down.” According to Don, about five families live in the immediate area, and nearly everyone attempted to spray down the fire to contain it to the best of their ability. “Being a farming area, everybody is out in the orchard working. They saw (the fire), came running up here, grabbed their hoses and tried to get as much water on it as they could,” said Don. When the fire crews arrived and took over they found smoke and flames advancing uphill and into a forested area on the property. Around 11:30 a.m., Kelowna Fire Department platoon captain Kelly Stephens said the fire was contained on all sides, noting the response included three engines, a command vehicle, one bush truck and two tenders—25 personnel in total. Don Wirch noted there was a small fire in the area 25 years ago, higher up the hill, which was likely caused by people hiking in the area. “We always have a few boxes ready to go, just in case,” he said. “If something happens, you’ve got to be ready to go at a moment’s notice.” Stephens estimated the fire covered an area of about 400 by 600 metres. Crews were in the mop up stage yesterday as they also dealt with flare-ups inside the fireguard due to wind. The Kelowna Fire Department reminds residents that there is no burning within the city limits at this time.

of Knox Mountain to vehicular traffic. The upper gate on Knox Mountain Park Drive will now be closed until conditions improve. The mountain remains open up to the first lookout for motorized vehicles and those hoping to enjoy the popular recreational area are still welcome to walk or bike the entire park. As of this morning, a campfire ban goes into effect throughout the Central Okanagan, according to a bulletin issued by the Central Okanagan Regional District. The ban falls in line with actions taken to the immediate north, in the Quesnel-Chilcotin/Central Cariboo fire region, and on Vancouver Island via the Coastal Fire Centre. The ban extends to the City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna, District of Lake Country and the Central Okangan East and West Electoral Areas. The use of fireworks is also banned in these areas at all times and campfires are never permitted in the City of Kelowna. Anyone noticing smoke or fire in any park should call *5555, the BC Wildfire Management Branch or 911 to speak to the fire department.

how to prepare ingredients and make their own home-based celebrations on Food Day Canada. Not only are people encouraged to create their own spread from produce purchased at farmers markets, but they are also able to dine at any of the about 275 restaurants from across the country that are participating this Saturday with menus featuring uniquely Canadian ingredients. Stewart, who has worked tirelessly to promote Canadian food culture, earning her an appointment as a member of the Order of Canada and a two-year stint as the University of Guelph’s honorary food ambassador, hopes people will post their menus and describe their plans on the Food Day Canada website. There are plenty of recipes there too for inspiration. An interactive map includes the locations of farmers markets and Food Day restaurants across the country “so it should be a guide of how to eat Canadian,” she explained. The idea is you can go and buy your good stuff here and here are the restaurants where you too can go and eat, she said. “I’ve got a really serious list of A restaurants across the country. I can’t believe it. It’s fantastic, it really is,” Stewart said. “This is finally the year I don’t really have to explain myself and restaurants are saying, ‘Yeah, yeah, we’ve heard about it and we’d be really happy to participate.” The Mission Hill dinner is being billed as southern-style BBQ “meats” wine country elegance. Batey will welcome Mission Hill’s alumnus chef Michael Allemeier, back to the winery for the first time in four years to collaborate on the dining menu. The evening will begin in the Varietal Garden with a canapé reception followed by a four-course elegant al fresco BBQ dining experience on the Loggia overlooking lush vineyards and the scenic Okanagan Lake.

Road construction upgrades to slow Gordon Drive traffic flow in August Gordon Drive in Kelowna will be resurfaced within the next three weeks and roadway preparation work is already underway between Highway 97 and Springfield Road. Beginning today crews are working intermittently to prepare the road by cleaning, sweeping, sealing cracks and completing some minor shoulder repairs. Expect delays as short-term lane closures or detours will occur until the roadworks expected completion on Sunday Aug. 11. On Tuesday, Aug. 6, and Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 5 p.m. to midnight, traffic pattern chang-

es will be in effect. Two-way traffic will be maintained. On Saturday, Aug. 10, and Sunday, Aug. 11, Gordon Drive will be closed entirely to traffic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for final paving. Motorists are advised to use alternate access to businesses and residences during that time. Motorists can expect delays and are encouraged to plan their commute. For the purpose of public safety and quality control, traffic control personnel will be directing motorists and local residents to stay off the newly treated road segments until they have sufficiently cured.

This work is part of the City of Kelowna’s 2013 pavement management program which will re-surface approximately 19 kilometres involving nine different road segments. The pavement management program prioritizes and determines how to upgrade and repair the road surfaces based on various tests and software analysis that provide a numerical ranking for each road. The 2013 asphalt and paving contract was awarded to Emil Anderson Construction Inc. for about $2.5 million; the work is expected to be complete by October 2013.

Local drivers given a warning by RCMP Central Okanagan RCMP plan to crack down on dangerous driving and those who drink and drive based on recent driving statistics. Between Lake Country, Kelowna and West Kelowna, police have managed to catch so many offenders for failing

to provide a breath sample or failing the roadside test they have removed 359 people from the road since January, compared to 50 for the same period in 2012. Those drivers are the ones who were immediately given roadside prohibitions. Some 131 were also

given warnings, whereas only 64 were over the same period last year. ] The number of people charged under the Criminal Code has gone down to 13, compared to 78 last year. According to a news release sent out Wednesday, the numbers are par-

tially due to the suspension of the Immediate Roadside Prohibition program for a portion of the first six months of 2012. Between Jan. 1 and June 30, 2013, police have recorded over 500 contacts that resulted in impaired driving charges, a 236 per cent increase.

Unique park opportunity may be lost, say Clifton residents Barry Gerding EDITOR

The Clifton Highlands Community Association wants the City of Kelowna to not be shortsighted on plans for a new park in the development plan for the land connection between McKinley Landing and Clifton Road. Barry Oland, a director for the association, says an opportunity appeared to exist initially for an Okanagan Lake waterfront park to be created as part of a 250-acre development proposed by the Calgary-based Melcor Developments. Oland said during a forum on the proposed area structure plan that Melcor must initially provide to the city, the park was situated at the southwest corner of the development, described as a site with flat, open sloping land with easy access to a pebble beach area. But since then, the plan has seen the park moved to a northwest corner, and Oland says the association wants

the city to not accept the switch. He described the second option, near the Dewdney Road #1 Beach Access, as requiring a stairway to access a limited beach area, is generally quite steep with limited potential for off-road parking on the narrow, winding road access to Dewdney Road. “There is an opportunity there to create a jewel of a park similar to what City Park is for downtown Kelowna,” Oland said. “There won’t be another opportunity to create a lakefront park after this. The new park site is a beach access with limited parking and long set of stairs to get down to it.” The development calls for up to 200 single family homes to be built on the 79.80 hectare site, which will provide a long-desired alternative access connection between McKinley Landing and the Clifton neighbourhood. Proposed neighbourhood development elements will include architecturally designed homes, trails, vegetated landscape, views and vistas

aimed at providing a seamless transition between the Clifton and McKinley Landing neighbourhoods. Oland said he can understand why Melcor opted out of the original park location because it is a flatter part of the steep and rugged terrain along the proposed development corridor and offers better land development opportunities. It could also in turn present a cheaper land acquisition opportunity for the city. “But (the city) has to look to the longer term. They don’t make available land for this anymore, so here is an opportunity to do something special but once it goes, that opportunity is gone. “City Park did not happen overnight. Gyro Beach did not happen overnight. But if the city gets the land and is not shortsighted about the cost for this park opportunity…it can happen.” Andy Bruce, heading up the development plans for Melcor, said the park location switch was not taken

lightly by the company’s management team. “We hated to make a change this late in the game but we’ve been at this process for two years now to come up with an area structure plan,” Bruce said. “We only get one opportunity to create the plan so we want to make sure we get it right, both from our perspective and the interests of the community.” Bruce said after weighing the pros and cons of the proposal, the northwest park option made more sense. One reason for that, he said, was that access to the park would require people accessing a long road through the new subdivision to reach the park. “Some things can change once the area structure plan is approved that are relatively minor, but for a park location it’s pretty important you have the right spot picked right from the start.” Bruce, who is the former assistant planning director for the City of Kelowna, said while the initial response

from City Hall has been positive to the park location change, he understands the frustrations that might arise from neighbouring residents. “We have tried to be open and transparent with all the stakeholders from day one. “There is no hidden agenda here,” Bruce said. “I’ve expressed to those concerned this was not our intent to make a change this late in the game, but the feeling was this was a better option for the development and at the end of the day, this will be a positive change.” Bruce said further discussions about the park and other aspects of the development are yet to be done before Melcor submits a final area structure plan to city council. That plan will be the basis for land use amendments to the site under the Official Community Plan, and required zoning and subdivision plan bylaws. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

Legalize pot; save health care

T

here’s a reverse echo going on around the country. Whenever Liberal leader Justin Trudeau says something, his comments are invariably followed by a response, usually snide, from the Prime Minister’s Office, in other words, Stephen Harper. Last week, Trudeau was in B.C. and he spoke for the decriminalization of marijuana. Not surprisingly, the PMO

came out chastising Trudeau for his comments. Why not? Harper has nurtured a tough on crime reputation. To the Conservative government’s credit crime across Canada appears to be on the decrease, according to Stats Canada data released last week. Interestingly enough, statistics for marijuana-related offences are on the rise and began rising at about the time Harper and the Conservatives won

their first minority government. Coincidence? The point is, the Conservative government, previous governments and the U.S. federal and state governments have tried to put the lid on marijuana cultivation, distribution and use. The end result has been a very expensive failure. Estimates of the annual value of the marijuana economy vary, but let’s pick a conservative $10 billion.

If marijuana were legalized, the federal government could keep $9 billion and pass $1 billion off to health care, education or social housing. What about endangered species, the coast guard or infrastructure upgrades? It’s time to rethink the approach to the war on drugs, and legalizing marijuana would be a profitable and useful first step. —Penticton Western News

State of alert erodes some of the Okanagan summer magic

I

t was a passing comment by the mayor of West Kelowna at a press conference held Monday to announce funding for flooding mitigation efforts for McDougall Creek. While the emphasis was on how Premier Christy Clark kept her campaign promise to provide provincial funding for that particular project, Mayor Doug Findlater noted that Okanagan summers just aren’t what they used to be. Findlater said that, referencing the stress that people go through when their homes and property are threatened by a natural disaster, such as the McDougall Creek flooding its banks last year, and from forest fires. Findlater said he has not faced

evacuation experiences personally because of flooding, but he has with relation to the Glenrosa and Terrace Mountain fires of recent years. When your neighbourhood is turned into a war zone, facing the wrath of Mother Nature, it tarnishes the whole concept of an Okanagan summer for those of us who live here and those who come to visit and wish they did. Is summer now about kicking back and relaxing or is it about being prepared for a looming disaster? Since the Okanagan Mountain

Park fire of 2003, most of us in the Central Okanagan understand the geographical terrain of where we live. As a result, the question now arises Barry every summer, where Gerding will the fire or the flood hit this time? References of comparison between Kelowna and California are common, one now being the forest fires we both endure, the homes that are lost and property destroyed. Even living in Black Mountain, my wife and I have had that discussion of what would happen if a fire

EDITOR’S NOTE

broke out in the forested areas around the Belgo, Kirshner Mountain or Toovey Heights below us. It’s not a stretch to think that people living in more direct interface with the bush are having that same discussion. You see that smoke in the air and you think, ‘Oh no, here we go again.’ Already this summer, we have had fires in West Kelowna, out near the Kelowna airport and earlier this week in Peachland and Glenrosa. While August tends to be worse for forest fires, not so this year due to the lack of rain in July. And the fire that surrounded Peachland last summer occurred in September. I don’t know that the fire depart-

ments and forest service firefighting crews can really be better at reacting to these events in Kelowna or West Kelowna than is currently the case, for it seems the tactical level of response to fires now is second to none. The sad part is when Findlater says we have lost a little of the innocence of summer here, it’s partly our own fault. Yes, lightning remains a common factor for bush fires, but think about how many fires occur because of human causes—people lighting fires they don’t pay attention to extinguishing adequately, shooting flares in the sky, throwing cigarette butts or flicking their ashes out the window. We can and should do better. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

Fantastic plays in the sun at Rotary Centre To the editor: The Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival is showing two extremely entertaining and brilliantly produced plays outdoors at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. I’ve seen both and it’s a treat to enjoy up and coming professional young actors supported by high calibre live music and excellent technical work. 

Neal Facey’s directing is dynamic and inspiring. He has been treating Kelowna theatre goers to amazing shows for over 30 years at KSS and with Viva Musica. Now with his vision and talent, he has brought us the Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival for the second year.   It’s wonderful to see the creative use of the outdoor space on the plaza outside the RCA. We who worked on building for the Art

Centre envisioned that this area would be ideal for outdoor performances. I urge everyone who loves live theatre to go to www.kelownasummertheatrefestival. com and get your tickets for these shows. The festival plays through Aug. 12.   Fantastic theatre! Go see it! Debby Helf, Kelowna

Indoctrination of believers ‘incomprehensible’ To the editor: Re: Crash Nearly Sends Motor Home Into Wood Lake, July 26 Capital News. Congratulations to the Norris family that they were able to walk away unscathed from what could have been a total disaster. They are extremely fortunate to be

able to enjoy the rest of their vacation. It is notable, however, that Mr. Norris believes: “God showed up here today, it’s an absolute miracle.” And, “God’s hand came down. There’s not a scratch on us.” Every 3.6 seconds someone dies of starvation in some, appar-

ently literally, God-forsaken part of the world. 1.5 million children starve to death each year. Untold millions live in abject poverty. More die, or are made homeless, in numerous wars and uprisings. Are we really to believe that this God has nothing better to do than attend to the needs of

Stratas could ban condo BBQs by barbecues, that would hardly be fair to the others in the building. But what they can do is refuse to insure any building that allows barbecues on upper decks, and in the case of a strata, it would be up to the council to develop a bylaw prohibiting them. Much simpler and more fair. Simon Richard Farrow, Kelowna

Study says lack of sleep raises health issues for children A ‘‘ recent study published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics found that children who had a relatively short duration of sleep are susceptible to behavioural problems and issues with aggression.

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel

In this study Dr. Rebecca Scharf, with the University of Virginia, studied nearly 9,000 pre-school aged children and found that those children who had less than nine hours of sleep per night were more likely to show impulsiveness, aggression, hyperactivity and tantrums when compared to their peers who had more sleep. This suggests that a consistent duration of sleep is paramount in the child’s health and normal development. I’m sure this comes as no surprise to most of you, but this is the first study of this size that has demonstrated a true correlation between sleep

duration and mental well-being and our children. In her study, Scharf stated that “reduced or disrupted sleep, especially if it occurs at key times in development, could have an important impact on health throughout life.” She found that the average bedtime for children was approximately 8:30 p.m. with the child waking at 7:15 a.m..  Interestingly enough, the study also demonstrated that boys who watched more than two hours of television per night had worse overall behaviour scores than the other subgroups. Developmental physiology outlines the import-

ance of children having enough sleep. It is estimated that young children enter the REM phase of sleep and will remain there for up to 80 per cent of their sleeping hours.  It is during this phase that growth hormone is secreted from the anterior pituitary gland, facilitating normal growth.  Adults, converse-

ly, will only spend approximately 20 per cent of their sleeping hours in the REM phase of sleep. It is interesting that many nations around the world do not start their school hours until about 9 a.m. in recognition of the importance of sleep for these young, developing minds and bodies. Is it any wonder why our teenagers always feel the need to sleep in during their most pronounced growth spurts? The importance of sleep can carry over to us adults as well.  We have a saying in our house with respect to my wife if she does not get enough sleep.  My six-year-old came up with it first: “Don’t poke the bear.” However, I do think this model is most import-

ant for children. The matter of sleep hygiene with children is most important.  It should include a series of events such as picking out your pajamas, grabbing your favourite teddy bear, reading a book or singing a song and then quiet time just before going to bed. It should not be simply, “Go to bed.” After all, their sleeping hours are just as important to their development as are their waking hours.  We have all had a tired child and that in itself sometimes is the best method of birth control.

Shipping container swallows crutches

IT’S OFFICIAL…

Christy Clark, the Premier of British Columbia, is now a sworn-in Member of the Legislature. Clark was sworn in recently at Canada Place in Vancouver. She had to run in a byelection, in the riding of Westside-Kelowna, after losing her seat to an NDP candidate during the general election in May. Ben Stewart gave up his seat in Westside-Kelowna for Clark to run in what is considered a safe Liberal riding.

Jim Couper CONTRIBUTOR

Four crutches and a wheel chair don’t make much of an impact on the space within a 40-foot shipping container. Vida Yakong discovered that last Saturday night when the doors of a big steel box swung open and the first few donations of medical equipment were placed inside. Yakong intends to fill the huge container with more than a wheel chair and crutches. She’s looking for medical equipment and small business supplies that she will ship to her home country of Ghana before the end of September. Ogopogo Rotary Club and Gift to Grandmothers Society have donated funds to ship the container half way around the world and to open a medical clinic when its contents get to northern Ghana. Collecting the required equipment and filling the container is her responsibility and she is counting on donations from the people of the Okanagan. Weigh scales, vitamins, medicines, hospital beds, medical books, walking canes, hospital gowns, refrigerators, aprons and about 60 other items, some very specialized, make up her wish list for the new clinic. One item that will help fill the spacious trailer is an automobile. Yakong hopes to get a donation of a four-cylinder, high clearance truck, van or SUV, with storage space and possibly four-wheel-drive. The auto will allow delivery of supplies to rural areas. Her family in Ghana is raising money to pay import duties and associated expenses. Yakong founded project GROW (Ghana Rural Opportunities for Women) and there is a separate list of needs for this group, including sewing machines, office supplies, computers, backpacks and writing equipment. “I just want to make life a little better for women and children in Ghana,” she explained. Yakong comes from a village in northern Ghana. She educated herself at home because her parents could not afford school fees. Eventually, she was accepted by Okanagan College’s nursing program and won numerous scholarships and awards. She now has her PhD in nursing and will return to Ghana to teach nursing and help women establish small businesses in her impoverished community. Anyone with items to donate can contact Keith Germaine, 250-764-2942, or leave donations at the office of St. Charles Garnier Church, 3645 Benvoulin Rd., where the container is parked. This is not a typical request for help in Africa because all people involved are known locally and have proved they can make a real difference with their understanding of both cultures. All donations of money or goods go directly to help those in need. Project GROW has seen Ghanaians receive goats, chickens and mosquito netting from generous nurses and other Kelowna citizens.

VIDA Yakong hopes to fill this container with donated medical and small business supplies to be delivered to people in need in her native Ghana, located in Africa. CONTRIBUTED

Go on Aug. 9, and you’ll get to experience an auditory show no other space is ever going to offer simply because the artists still don’t know what they’ll decide to play. “I’ve kind of said goodbye to recording,” said James Masz. “If you’re there, you heard it.” Darren Williams and Masz improvise their shows. Williams is a jazz saxophone player and Masz an electronic artist who uses his computer to create music. In the ladder’s case, it’s really more electronic devices he plays.

See and hear them at the Alternator Gallery on Friday, Aug . 9 ed stems he’s created in preparation for an evening of music where even he’s never too sure what’s about to happen. And he does play. Masz has been at this sort of work since 1992, releasing two albums since 2009 and collaborating with a wide range of artists including Ber-

lin-based filmmaker Matthias Frisch, multi-disciplinary artist Erik Rezepka and Williams. He’s also local whereas Williams is technically out of the Coast music scene— specifically East Vancouver—though he has been living in Kelowna. Williams is known for his collaborations

with American guitar and banjoist Eugene Chadbourne, also a fan of playing free jazz and noise. Described has having “a penchant for reinvention of popular musical forms” on LiveVictoria. com, Williams has otherwise been working through a high-energy improvisation scene that hasn’t exactly left him a big name in the mainstream, but promises this audience a quality of music not often available in Kelowna.

A saxophone player and bassoonist, he pushes the limits of extended instrumental technique, thrilling audiences at the 2013 Vancouver International Jazz Festival. He has a bachelor of fine art in music studies from York University and has played with top contemporary players like Casey Sokol (a York professor), David Mott, George Lewis and Francois Houle. While Williams tours, Masz sticks primarily to festivals and smaller venues, not readily available for many music fans to hear—though his albums are available on Bandcamp (bandcamp. com) and he is also on the SoundCloud (soundcloud.com). The pair will play the Alternator Aug. 9, 6:30 p.m. as Williams wraps up an 11 city cross-country tour. Admission is $7 of $5 for Alternator members. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

to say farewell to an old friend, Shingen Yashida (Hiroyuki Sanada), who is dying—and things go downhill from there. Again, violence and incredible stunts are a large part of this film. The acting is so-so, but what do we want from a half man/half wolf. Logan’s lukewarm scenes with his supposed love interest, Marika (Tao Okamoto) are a bit hard to take, but director James Mangold redeems himself with the action scenes which are plentiful.

Jackman, who has played Logan/Wolverine six times, is a big fan of the Wolverine comic (1982), particularly the Japanese saga. Interestingly, this is the first time “Wolverine” is in a movie without X-Men in the title. To prepare for the role Jackman worked out three hours a day, ate 6,000 calories daily and sought advice on bulking up from Dwayne Johnson, who may be the King of bulking up. As movies go, this is

fast-paced and suspenseful but don’t go expecting to see great acting. Stay for the credits and see what’s in store for X-Men. By the way, this is not the last we’ll see of The Wolverine, he’s scheduled to come back again. I give The Wolverine three reels for this one, but the chase scenes are awesome. Susan Steen is a local movie buff. susansteen1234@shaw.ca

Flex your mentor muscle with Studio9 In today’s Volunteer Centre column, Mike Guzzi, CEO and teacher with Studio9 School of the Arts, invites artists to share their knowledge and skills with students and teachers.

his coming year Studio9 School of the Arts in Kelowna is starting an artist mentor program for both practicing artists in music, dance, visual arts, sculpting, etc., as well as retired artists who would like to volunteer some time to work with children. This can include a classroom project with a teacher, a continuous program, weekend or holiday camps and after school programs. There is even the opportunity to mentor staff in designing more Learning Through the Arts curriculum where students can understand academic learning outcomes through art-based instruction or practice. We believe there are a number of expert artists in all genres in the community who have so much to contribute to our students and our staff at Studio9.

It’s still summer movie season E

ven though back to school sales have started and ET Canada is showing fall movie previews, the summer movie season is far from over, with many new openings coming up. Superstars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg team up for the action comedy 2 Guns in which they play corrupt law enforcement officers who are, unknowingly, lead investigators on each other. Washington is a DEA agent and Wahlberg is an NCIS officer who both believe that they are each stealing money from the mob, but when they realize they were set up by the CIA, they must work together to return the money and stay alive. Also starring Bill Paxton, James Marsden, -Paula Patton, Edward James Olmos and Fred Ward, it is directed by award-winning Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur, who previously worked with Wahlberg on last year’s sleeper hit Contraband. Like Contraband, 2 Guns has a good chance of coming in under the radar and surprise everybody. There is no surprise that there is a sequel to 2011’s The Smurfs after grossing over $500 million worldwide. In fact, The Smurfs 2 was announced only one week after its predecessor was released. Returning is director Raja Gosnell (Never Been Kissed, ScoobyDoo), live actors Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Hank Azaria and the voices of Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Katy Perry (Smurfette), Fred Armison (Brainy), George Lopez (Grouchy) and newcomers Christina Ricci (Vexy) and J.B.Smooth (Hackus). In this sequel, Gargamel (Azaria), the creator of Smurfette, has made two new Smurflike creatures called The Naughties in the hopes of harnessing magical Smurf essence. With his new creations, he kidnaps Smurfette and takes her to Paris. The other Smurfs must transport back to the real world and enlist their friends to help rescue her. Sony Pictures Animation is not waiting for opening weekend as they are already in development of a third movie. Sadly, Jonathan Winters will not be returning as Papa Smurf (he also voiced Grandpa Smurf in the 1980s TV series) as he died soon after he finished

Its predecessor, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, was only a minor hit and barely recouped its budget, but 20th Century Fox may want to continue building the series now that Harry Potter is finished. Opening next Wednesday, it continues the story of Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, who embarks on a journey to retrieve the mythical Golden Fleece with his fellow demi-god friends. Also opening next Wednesday is the com-

movies opening on Wednesday, there are two more big movies opening next weekend—but more on them next week. Rick Davis is the general manager of Landmark Cinemas 8 in West Kelowna. landmarkwk_gm @landmarkcinemas.ca

Rockies host bantam AA finals Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

PITCHER Kyle Ciurka and his Rutland Rockies teammates are hosting the B.C. bantam AA baseball championship this weekend at Edith Gay Park.

Even with a 13-5-1 summer season record and a tournament win at the Valley of Champions under their belt, the Rutland Rockies are finding respect a little hard to come by. The Rockies are seeded surprising ninth out of 10 teams heading into the B.C. bantam AA baseball championship beginning Thursday in Kelowna. “If they’re trying to open a whole new can to get our guys going, they’ve sure done that,” said Rockies head coach Rob Law. “We’ve had a pretty good season, three of our five losses have been against triple-A teams, so to be seeded where we are is a bit of a surprise. But that’s OK with us, the boys are motivated by it and ready to play.” The host Rockies open up provincials on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at Edith Gay Park against No. 1 seeded Cloverdale, the

Fertser signs extension “I’ve been fortunate enough to coach in the BCHL for a long time now,” said Ferster, who coached previously in Victoria and Salmon Arm. “West Kelowna is obviously a great place to coach, and one of the premier franchises in the league. “I’d like to thank the Cheyne family for their gracious offer.” Team owner Mark See Ferster A14

“In this tournament, it’s going to be an any given Sunday sort of thing, where any team could win it,” Law said. “These ball clubs are all competitive, so I expect a lot of tight games, no blow outs.” The Rockies are hoping to duplicate the kind of baseball they played last month in winning the title at the Valley of Champions tournament in Kelowna.

The self-named Lunch Box Boys, Law said the Rockies’ style is to do “whatever it takes to win,” and the same approach will be the key to their success this weekend. If all the cards fall into place, then Law believes a gold medal is a distinct possibility for his club. “We’re deep in pitching, so we’ve just gotta make sure we throw strikes,” Law said. “We have to hit the ball solid, not wait for the other team to make errors, just go out and get it. And if our defense holds and plays solid like they have been, then I think we’ll be in the mix.” Following Thursday’s opener, Rutland will play Ladner and noon on Friday and Surrey at 6 p.m. On Saturday, Rutland will play Prince George at 11:30. The top two teams from each pool of five head to the playoffs on Sunday morning. The championship is slated to start at 2 p.m.

Rylan Ferster plans to be in West Kelowna for the long-term. The B.C. Hockey League’s Warriors this announced they have signed the 44-year-old head coach and GM to a fiveyear contract extension. In two seasons with West Kelowna, Ferster has posted 52-42-6-16 regular season record, and guided the Warriors into the Interior Conference final for the second time in club history.

only club at the 10-team event Rutland hasn’t played this season. Against the eight remaining teams, the Rockies have been competitive this season, winning their share of head-to-head match ups. Surrey, Abbotsford, Prince George, Ladner, Van Community, Victoria, Burnaby and Richmond round out the roster of teams at the four-day season-ending tourney.

KELOWNA Rockets centre Rourke Chartier will play

with Team Canada next week at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka U-18 tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Playing for Team West at the World Under-17 Challenge in Quebec last December was one of the biggest thrills of Rourke Chartier’s young hockey career. The Kelowna Rockets centre and Saskatoon native is about to top that experience over the next 10 days as a member of the Canada’s national under-18 team. Chartier was named to the 22-man national squad this week for the Memorial for Ivan Hlinka Tournament, Aug. 5 to 10 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. “It’s a huge honour to represent your country,” Chartier said Tues-

day from Calgary, site of the Team Canada selection camp. “I was excited to get the invite to camp first of all, but now to be named to the team is even bigger. I’m excited for the opportunity.” Just like his current Rockets teammate Madison Bowey did one year ago, Chartier would like to bring some hardware home from the prestigious international championship. Canada has won gold at the tournament in each of the last five years. “Canada is expected to do well at any tournament, but winning five years in a row raises the expectations even more,”

said Chartier. “There’s pressure, but it’s good pressure. I think the guys are looking forward to the challenge.” Chartier, 17, was the Rockets first round choice, 15th overall in the 2011 WHL bantam draft. The WHL Western Conference nominee for Scholastic player of the year in 2012-13, Chartier scored 13 goals and had 30 points in his rookie season with Kelowna. Canada opens the Memorial for Ivan Hlinka Tournament with an exhibition game Saturday, Aug. 3 against Slovakia. The Canadians open the preliminary round Aug. 5 vs. the Czechs.

Junior A’s set for Jr. Premier playoffs The Okanagan junior A’s have secured a B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League playoff spot and will be in Langley Aug. 8 to 11 for the season-ending championship tournament. The A’s closed out the regular season with a 2123 record, good enough for the eighth and final post-season berth.

Okanagan finished the 2013 regular campaign with a split of four games against the Cannons last weekend at Queen’s Park in Vancouver. In Saturday’s opener, Easton Forrest tossed a seven-his shutout for his fifth win as the A’s won 2-0. In Game 2, Sam Larsen had two hits and

three RBI, and stole his 33rd base of the season in an 11-1 Okanagan win. David Tongue scattered three hits over five innings to push his record to 6-5. On Sunday, the Cannons rebounded with a sweep of their own, winning 4-2 and 7-3. DOUGLAS FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

Cheyne is happy to have Ferster committed to a new deal. “We knew what we were getting when we initially signed Rylan in 2011,” said Cheyne. “He is great for the team, the community, and

the franchise. We couldn’t be happier to keep him around and build some stability.” With two seasons under his belt, Ferster hopes to continue to build on a solid BCHL program in West Kelowna. “The staff have all been here a while now,

and will continue to be here,” Ferster said. “That’s so important for the recruiting process, and I think future players and parents will appreciate that.” The deal is also attractive to Ferster from a family perspective as he able to remain close to

his twin daughters, Brook and Alyssa. Ferster is in the process of preparing for the club’s 2013 training camp which will feature more than 40 players and will kick off Aug. 22 at Royal LePage Place.

Kelowna Jays second in Okanagan MBL senior playoffs The Kelowna Jays settled for second best at the 2013 Okanagan Major Baseball League championship tournament In the OMBL final Saturday at Elks Stadium, the Kamloops Sun Devils edged the Jays 4-3. After the Vernon Diamondbacks were elim-

inated, the Jays and Sun Devils agreed to use Saturday’s round robin game as the finale, rather than have Kamloops return to Kelowna on Sunday. In the final, Gage Mclaren pitched the first four innings for the Jays and left with a 1-0 lead. The Jays picked up a first in-

ning run as Trevor Mlait reached on an error to the shortstop, stole third and scored on a ground out by Jared Johnson. Braeden Heyland came in to pitch in the fifth and gave up only one hit, but two key errors and a couple of walks allowed the Sun Devils  the score

four times. Kamloops pitcher Kelowna rallied with Alex Reid went nine intwo runs in the top of the nings and struck out five. eighth, capped by a twoRBI double by Shishido.  In the top of the ninth Jared Johnson and Colin Currie reached base, but Johnson was thrown out on a close play at third to end the game.

Lightning competes in Montreal Craig Mathieson, 15, Christina Russo, 17, Jennifer Short, 18, and Lucas Tyler, 14, all took to the pool for some national level experience,. Highlighting the event was Tyler with per cent best times. Tyler took fifth place in both the 100 meter and 50 meter butter-

Whitecap fields questions from young hopefuls Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Vancouver Whitecaps left fullback Jordan Harvey fielded a range of questions Wednesday, regarding his team’s success, his soccer background and even his diet. But it wasn’t sports reporters asking the questions—it was a group of local eight and nine-yearolds who are more used to seeing Harvey on their TV

screen than in person. The Vancouver Whitecaps skill camp is being held at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School in West Kelowna from July 29 to Aug. 2. Harvey made a special appearance Wednesday to answer questions, sign autographs and take photos with the kids. One girl asked whether or not Harvey has ever been cut from a team and, if so, how that affected

z O . s r D staff and

him. “Initially, (trying out) for a U.S. regional team, I wasn’t selected. They called out all the names; I wasn’t one of them,” said Harvey. “I was pretty sad, but within a week they called me back. There was someone injured and they let me come back. Within three weeks I was playing for the first team on the national team. “It was a huge les-

drill. son for me to stay motivated; if you don’t make a team, it’s not the end of the world.” Another child asked Harvey if he gets nervous before key matches. “You get some butterflies before games. I think pressure is good; you’re going to have pressure whether you play soccer or do anything. I think it’s how you overcome and get past that pressure and really perform. “You really test yourself when you’re in those pressure situations.”

Harvey also told the young players about his vigorous training schedule—generally four days per week, aside from games—as well as the kind of foods he has to eat as a professional athlete. The majority of this week’s camp in West Kelowna is focused around helping young soccer players develop their fundamental skills. It’s camps like this that made a difference for Harvey, who grew up in Mission Viejo, California. “Playing and hav-

ing those experiences (is something) I’ve never forgotten and will never forget. I think it really motivated me to play professionally.” Harvey, who has also played for the Colorado Rapids and Philadelphia Union, noted he’s amazed to see how well the Whitecaps have been able to spread their fan base beyond Vancouver. “They’ve done such a great job of bringing in all of B.C. and really establishing the Whitecaps organization and the

brand and venturing out to places like Kelowna. “Other teams, in the past, haven’t done that really.” Harvey’s also pleased to see the increased popularity of Major League Soccer throughout all of North America. “It’s grown so much… and I think it’s going to take off—I really do.”

If you wish to sit and ponder her life, take the pathway behind Brandt’s Creek Pub. Cross the wooden bridge behind the pub and turn right onto the path. Follow the path a ways until you see the community gardens on the left in the distance. The bench is on the right. There is a plaque commending her. Sit for a while, think about her and how she touched you. She was a wonderful, caring and loving person. She is truly missed by all.

▼ MISSION TAP HOUSE & GRILL

Former pub gets a renovation makeover

A

fter five months of renovations, The Mission Tap House and Grill has opened at 3110 Lakeshore Rd. (formerly Pheasant and Quail Pub). Owned and operated by Steven Stinson and managed by Tanner Dillon, the restaurant has seating for 200 including an outside patio. There are still two raised levels and the former beer and wine store has been converted into seating. Chef Jeremy Luypet (known as the chef who bikes) specializes in the farm to table program with feature menus that change periodically to use local produce. I sampled the rosemary lamb burger with a garden fresh salad and it was delicious. Plenty to eat as well. They offer 20 craft beers on tap with Tree Brewing as their major craft brewery. There is live local music sponsored by Tree Brewing Fridays and Saturdays and they are open seven days a week from 11 a.m. daily. It is with great sadness that I learned this week our very own “weatherman” Mike Roberts is retiring. After an illustrious 40-year career, Roberts will give his last weather update for Global Okanagan on Friday, Sept. 6. You can read more about Mike in today’s Capital News on page A5, but we wish him all the best in his new adventures as he steps into retirement and the chance to play a lot more golf, which he loves. Treehouse Interiors, owned and operated by Rob and Karen Horner moved to their present lo-

STRAIGHT FROM DEHART

Maxine DeHart cation, at the corner of Spall and Windsor, three years ago. That move gave Treehouse four times the display space. This new expansion means the addition of a 7,000 square-foot loft area in the store. The extra space will allow for the showcasing of a large selection of custom Italian leather sofas, showing unique fashion forward designs yo won’t find elsewhere.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen patio flavours The quintessential long weekend of summer is the B.C. Day weekend at the beginning of August. In the Okanagan, residents expect visitors. There are lots of options for summer food and beverages to get you over the long weekend, while you celebrate B.C. Day—whether that’s in your own kitchen and on your patio—or that of a local eatery such as Earl’s where they offer special Margaritas every Monday until Sept. 9, along with guacamole, tacos, burgers and salads. We also can offer our guests a wide array of local wines, from summer sippers for pairing with appies, to serious wines to go with barbecued meats—or funny-looking chickens, balanced over a small tin can. While you’re picking out the perfect wine you can enjoy some of the best patios in the valley, at wineries such as See Ya Later Ranch in Okanagan Falls, Mission Hill and Quails’ Gate in West Kelowna, CedarCreek and Summerhill in the Mission area of Kelowna and Gray Monk Estate Winery in Lake Country. Or, you could join the Craft Beer Revolution, beginning with the book by that name by Joe Wiebe. It’s sub-titled The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries. Nick-named the Thirsty Writer, Joe chronicles the microbrewing movement in B.C., which began in 1982 at Horseshoe Bay. He includes a chapter on Craft Beer in Wine Country, with mentions of Okanagan Brewing (about which he’s no longer very enthusiastic) and Freddy’s Brewpub in Kelowna, the legendary Crannog Ales in Sorrento, the Firehall Brewery in Oliver, the Barley Mill Brewpub and Cannery Brewing in Penticton and the Barley Station Brew Pub in Salmon Arm. I think this little book would be a must-have for the beer enthusiast, and it’s all about B.C.’s best. I’m a big supporter of B.C. agricultural and food products, from beer and wine to everything that’s fresh and local, in season, and that’s what the Buy Local Eat Natural movement is all about too. They organized the We Heart Local Awards which conclude Aug. 5. You can vote for your favourite local food supporters in 15 categories, including my book, Jude’s Kitchen and this food column, in the advocacy category, by going to: www.facebook.com/buylocaleatnatural

See Ya Later Hunny Punch I confess, I’m not a grapefruit fan, so this is not a recipe I tried, but I suspect if you like the fruit, you’ll love this. It’s a recipe created by YEW lead bartender Justin Taylor. The 2011 Hunny is a late harvest Riesling from See Ya Later Ranch winery in Okanagan Falls which is perfect to end a meal with or to pair with strong-flavoured cheeses or fresh-baked apple crumble. Although it’s a dessert wine, it’s still fresh and lively tasting and

Add sprigs of fresh herbs, and lemon pieces. Open the soda and stand the chicken up over the open can, in a deep casserole dish or pan. Bake for an hour. Remove the chicken, empty the cavity into the pan or a pot and tent the chicken with foil to rest for 20 minutes. Pour the soda in with the contents of the cavity and make a BBQ Vinaigrette sauce with the molasses, malt vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Over medium heat, bring to bubbling and remove the whole herbs before simmering for about 10 minutes, or until reduced and a bit syrupy. Taste, adjust the seasoning and squeeze the lemon from the bird into the sauce, tossing away the remainder of the lemon. Ned suggests serving this with barbecued asparagus, golden spuds and yams. Carve up the chicken and drizzle the BBQ Vinaigrette over the top.

Campfires banned in Okanagan Valley Effective noon today, all campfires are prohibited across the Kamloops Fire Centre. This is to prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety. The fire danger rating is currently “high” throughout the region, with scattered pockets of “extreme.” With the current trend of warm and dry weath-

er, wildfires in the region have been very aggressive and required additional fire suppression resources. Human-caused wildfires can divert critical resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring fires. Open burning is prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. This prohibition applies to open fires of any size, fires

with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and barrels. The prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less

than 15 centimetres. The open burning prohibition covers all B.C. Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are served by a fire department. Anyone found in violation of the ban, including campfires, may be ticket-

A Glenmore bush fire threatened, but didn’t damage, nearby Scenic Road homes Tuesday. The blaze began around 10:20 a.m. Tuesday near 2130 Scenic Rd. Patricia Vangolen and David Spicer were taking a break from their tandem bicycle ride along Scenic Road when Vangolen noticed a plume of black smoke. Spicer ran across the street to the Glenmore fire hall before phoning 911. It was around that time Don Wirch’s family was alerted about the fire by a neighbour; their house was metres from the blaze. “They told us they’d called 911,” said Don’s 20-year-old daughter, Rebekah Wirch. “We just ran out, grabbed some garden hoses and started spraying it down.” According to Don, about five families live in the immediate area, and nearly everyone attempted to spray down the fire to contain it to the best of their ability. “Being a farming area, everybody is out in the orchard working. They saw (the fire), came running up here, grabbed their hoses

and tried to get as much water on it as they could,” said Don. When the fire crews arrived and took over they found smoke and flames advancing uphill and into a forested area on the property. Around 11:30 a.m., platoon captain Kelly Stephens said the fire was contained on all sides, noting the response included three engines, a command vehicle, one bush truck and two tenders—25 personnel in total. Don noted there was a small fire in the area 25 years ago, higher up the hill, which was likely caused by people hiking in the area. “We always have a few boxes ready to go, just in case,” said Don. “If something happens, you’ve got to be ready to go at a moment’s notice.” Stephens estimated the fire was about 400 by 600 metres. Crews were in the mop up stage Tuesday afternoon as they also dealt with flare ups due to wind inside the guard. The Kelowna Fire Department reminds residents that there is no burning within the city limits at this time.

Whitecap fields questions from young hopefuls

Vancouver Whitecaps left fullback Jordan Harvey fielded a range of questions Wednesday, regarding his team’s success, his soccer background and even his diet. But it wasn’t sports reporters asking the questions—it was a group of local eight and nine-yearolds who are more used to seeing Harvey on their TV screen than in person. The Vancouver Whitecaps skill camp is being held at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School in West Kelowna from July 29 to Aug. 2. Harvey made a special appearance Wednesday to answer questions, sign autographs and take photos with the kids. One girl asked whether or not Harvey has ever been cut from a team and, if so, how that affected him. “Initially, (trying out) for a U.S. regional team, I wasn’t selected. They called out all the names; I wasn’t one of them,” said Harvey. “I was pretty sad, but within a week they called me back. There was someone injured and they let me come back. Within three weeks I was playing for the first team on the national team. “It was a huge lesson for me to stay motivated; if you don’t make a team, it’s not the end of the world.” Another child asked Harvey if he gets nervous before key matches. “You get some butterflies before games. I think pressure is good; you’re going to have pressure whether you play soccer or do anything. I think it’s how you overcome and

get past that pressure and really perform. “You really test yourself when you’re in those pressure situations.” Harvey also told the young players about his vigorous training schedule—generally four days per week, aside from games—as well as the kind of foods he has to eat as a professional athlete. The majority of this week’s camp in West Kelowna is focused around helping young soccer players develop their fundamental skills. It’s camps like this that made a difference for Harvey, who grew up in Mission Viejo, California. “Playing and having those experiences (is something) I’ve never forgotten and will never forget. I think it really motivated me to play professionally.” Harvey, who has also played for the Colorado Rapids and Philadelphia Union, noted he’s amazed to see how well the Whitecaps have been able to spread their fan base beyond Vancouver. “They’ve done such a great job of bringing in all of B.C. and really establishing the Whitecaps organization and the brand and venturing out to places like Kelowna. “Other teams, in the past, haven’t done that really.” Harvey’s also pleased to see the increased popularity of Major League Soccer throughout all of North America. “It’s grown so much… and I think it’s going to take off—I really do.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews. com Twitter: @PatersonWade

The District of West Kelowna, with the support of key sponsor Reuter Real Estate, will present the inaugural Global Music Fest on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Memorial Park as part of the Music in the Park summer concert series. “The inaugural Music in the Park series last year was a resounding success and council threw its whole-hearted support behind making this year’s Music in the Park bigger and better,” said Mayor Doug Findlater.

“With the addition of Global Music Fest, the brainchild of Ryan Donn and Creative Okanagan, residents and our friends from other Okanagan communities have access to new and exciting cultural activities in West Kelowna.” Donn is the creative director with Creative Okanagan and came up Global Music Fest as an artistic showcase for Global Citizen Week. He worked with the Intercultural Society of the Central Okanagan to host

the event in Kelowna four times. In securing a partnership with the District of West Kelowna to bring the event across the water, he said the organizing team is placing even more emphasis on young families with a kid’s zone, multicultural food fair and an all ages entertainment lineup. “With the great success of Music in the Park, we know there is a desire for more cultural programming in West Kelowna,” said Donn. On the music front,

homegrown favourite, Kinship, will bring their own special brand of inyour-face, foot-stomping Maritime and Celtic music to headline the event for their only summer performance in the region. They will be joined by the popular folk-cabaret band, Maria in the Shower, a Vaudeville-inspired fixture on the trendy East Vancouver art scene whose singer/percussionist, Todd Bifford, also hails from the Okanagan.

“We wanted to select two headliner acts that are well-known in the valley and represent some of our unique cultural sounds,” said Donn. “And, of course, we couldn’t do the event without highlighting the first cultural community in the area, Westbank First Nation, selecting the First Nations fashion show, drum circle and some unique cultural kid’s zone activities to showcase WFN’s influence.” The family-friendly event is free to attend.

Canadian Blood Services asks for donations Canadian Blood Services is activating the “blood signal” and asking eligible Canadians to donate blood now. Over the next two weeks, Canadian Blood Services needs 17,000 more Canadians to book an appointment to donate

blood, including 3,088 in B.C. and Yukon. The summer months are challenging for Canada’s blood system as donors change their routines, take vacations and are involved with outdoor activities—donating blood is not always top of

z O . s Drstaff and

mind. With lower than expected collections through the end of June and the first two weeks of July, coupled with constant hospital demand, Canadian Blood Services is asking Canadians to answer the call to donate

blood. Blood systems in the United States and UK have recently issued urgent appeals for blood donors with fewer donations being made this summer and overall blood inventory levels falling. “The reality is that the need for blood does not take a summer vacation and we need more Canadians to book an appointment now,” said Ed Yee, director of donor and clinic services for the B.C. and Yukon region of Canadian Blood Services. “Patients in hospitals still require transfusions of blood products for surgeries, cancer treatments and other procedures.” According to Canadian Blood Services, one person who is seriously injured in a car crash could need as many as 50 blood donations to help save his/her life. “Our national inventory means that no one is currently going without

blood and we can draw on its reserves so that patients who need blood continue to get it. “We do, however, need to replenish our blood supply after a challenging start to the summer and we’re calling on donors from the B.C. and Yukon areas to donate.” West Kelowna blood donor clinic availabilities are: Monday, Aug. 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 30 from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Assembly Church (2600 Herbert Rd.). The Kelowna blood donor clinic is open every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., as well as every second Saturday— July 27, Aug. 10, Aug. 24, etc.—from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 103 - 1865 Dilworth Drive. To book an appointment, visit blood.ca or call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888236-6283).
