oday marks the beginning of Kelowna’s biggest tourism weekend of the year. Parking spots will be more difficult to locate, as will patches of sand to spread beach towels over. Thirty minute waits will be expected at downtown restaurants and pubs; the word “no” will be spotted on most hotel vacancy signs. For locals, the minor inconveniences are well worth it—the population swell is good news for local businesses. And, if Tourism Kelowna’s anecdotal evidence

is any indication, the business of being a destination has been pretty good so far this summer. Despite the devastating flooding that may have stopped several Albertans from travelling west in late June and early July, the majority of local accommodations are reporting increased numbers compared to last summer. Well over 20,000 out-of-towners will be arriving over the next three days thanks to Kelowna’s biggest entertainment and sports festival—Monster Energy Center of Gravity. It’s a mammoth event expected to

spill $6 million into the local economy. Though all seems well in the local tourism industry, Tourism Kelowna’s recent push to build a new visitor centre in City Park has a significant slice of the population less than amused. In this week’s Close-up, Capital News reporter Wade Paterson looks at the tourism number projections for this summer, what residents and visitors can expect this weekend and why Tourism Kelowna feels its necessary to set up shop in City Park.

been small increases, year over year, building back up from the decline that we saw in 2009 from the economic downturn. “The increases have been nominal, so we’re not quite up to the height of 2008 just yet, but we’re headed in the right direction.” Most of Kelowna’s visitors have traditionally come from B.C. and Alberta. While this is still the case, the type of vacation they’re opting to take has evolved. Many tourists are choosing quick, spur-of-

the-moment getaways as opposed to multi-week holidays, according to Frechette. Daily non-stop flights to and from Toronto have also brought more Ontario residents to the Okanagan Valley. Frechette notes Tourism Kelowna aggressively promotes the region in popular markets. “We’ll do radio campaigns on Vancouver stations or (other) stations where we know there’s a high percentage of that market that travels to Kelowna in the summer.”

Tourism Kelowna also goes after specific travellers in niche markets, with the aim of bringing golfers, wine lovers and, most recently, adventure seekers to our backyard. Recently, Tourism Kelowna partnered with golf insider Bob Weeks for a TSN feature which showcased Kelowna golf courses. “We do very highly targeted campaigns because we know that those are deciding factors for people,” Frechette says. Perhaps the most successful Tourism Kelowna

effort came on July 15. Over three million sets of eyes witnessed what the Okanagan has to offer as it was the setting for the inaugural episode of The Amazing Race Canada. The show set a ratings record and was the most watched Canadian entertainment program since the Corner Gas finale in 2009. ••• The two peaks of summer tourism in Kelowna are the July and August long weekends. Typically, both offer good weather, plenty of

attractions and an extra day off work. But Center of Gravity’s world-class entertainment, more than 150 professional athletes and 30,000 guests, likely gives the August long weekend the upper hand. Scott Emslie, founder of Wet Ape Productions, says their Center Of Gravity event has grown every year since 2007—when it was then known as Volleyfest. “I feel like there are constantly new challenges,” says Emslie. “I think if we stayed

the same size it would get a lot easier, but every year we’ve grown substantially.” The estimated local economic benefit, directly related to Center of Gravity, was $4 million in 2011. Last year it was $5 million. This year, Emslie predicts it will be closer to $6 million. “It’s probably going to stay around $6 million for the next couple years. “As long as we’re bringing the right enter-

he official statistics won’t be released until sometime this fall, but Catherine Frechette, communications manager for Tourism Kelowna, is optimistic about what will be revealed later this year. “From reports with accommodators in town, it shows that June was fairly on par with June 2012,” says Frechette. “In July, we conducted an informal poll with accommodators. The poll we conducted was really spurred on by the Calgary flooding event.” The results indicated the majority of hotel, bed and breakfast and campground owners saw increased business in July. The poll also got a taste of their projections for August. “There are only a few who are expressing unease, which is linked with the Calgary market. Overwhelmingly, the confidence is good for August.” One doesn’t have to look much further than recent provincial election predictions to understand polling should be taken with a grain of salt. But Frechette says the early indications have Tourism Kelowna staff feeling optimistic about the overall summer season. “What we’ve seen over the last few years has

Center Of Gravity draws a crowd Tourism from A3 tainment, I think the crowds are going to come.” What may be most telling is the makeup of those crowds. The 2012 ticket purchases were comprised of 26 per cent locals, 48 per cent visitors from B.C. and 23 per cent visitors from Alberta. The other three per cent came mostly from other Canadian provinces and the United States. “That’s where you get that big economic impact—all the people from Alberta and the Lower Mainland that come out for the weekend,” he says. The Keloha Music and Arts Festival, the other Kelowna brainchild of Emslie’s, has experienced a more modest growth. The festival, which ran July 5 to 7, brought out about 15,000 spectators in its second year. Emslie says the numbers for Keloha were up by about 10 per cent this year, but Wet Ape Productions “still has a ways to go” to make Keloha a sustainable event. “Our focus is finding a way to make the numbers make sense for Keloha.” Wet Ape Productions and Tourism Kelowna have sustained a healthy give-and-take relationship since 2007. Keloha benefits from a Tourism Kelowna grant. The notfor-profit society also ensures both Keloha and Center of Gravity information is readily available to visitors. In turn, Center of Gravity athletes’ and artists’ care packages will include promotional material fea-

park elsewhere. The building design includes a 5,000-square-foot visitor centre, 4,000-square-feet of Tourism Kelowna office space and 7,000-square feet of retail space. But letters to the editors of both Kelowna’s newspapers and radio talk show callers have indicated some residents aren’t so fond of the idea.“Please do not use up precious parkland to house an information bureau. There must be many other sites available for that purpose,” writes Mary Blumer in a July 25 letter to the Capital News. In another newspaper letter to the editor published Aug. 1, Layton Park suggests the abandoned McDonald’s building on Harvey Avenue could be an “obvious solution.” Park notes that option would provide more than 8,000-squarefeet of office space, ample parking and higher visibility from the highway. A similar suggestion was brought forward through a City of Kelowna online community engagement tool. Although the topic is now closed for comment, the website indicates the idea of utilizing the former McDonald’s site has been reviewed and been determined to be “not feasible,” likely due to transportation and access issues. A report is expected to come back to City of Kelowna council in September, giving recommendations for the City Park Concept Plan, including public feedback. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

turing various attractions in the region, which has been provided by Tourism Kelowna. ••• Most Okanagan residents recognize and appreciate the work Tourism Kelowna does to help grow the local economy. But a recent proposal to include a visitor centre and Tourism Kelowna office space in a new City Park building near Abbott Street and Bernard Avenue has more than a few residents frustrated. Nancy Cameron, president and CEO of Tourism Kelowna, has posted a 1,100-word explanation on why a new visitor centre should be built in City Park on the society’s blog website. Her plea suggests a visitor centre needs to be housed in an area surrounded by pedestrian traffic. “It’s a numbers game. An increase in the number of tourists using a visitor centre relates directly to increases of people entering tourist attractions, services and retail shops,” she states. “Those using the visitor centre will discover more to do in Kelowna than they had previously known and will go to more attractions, stay longer and have their expectations exceeded resulting in referrals to their friends.” She goes on to note Tourism Kelowna does not want to see a loss of green space, and that the number of RVs and cars pulling trailers—in her opinion—won’t likely take up additional parking. And although tour buses may drop off customers at the centre, they will likely

Mounties to increase presence during long weekend Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Don’t be surprised if you see more RCMP officers than usual patrolling the city streets this weekend. Const. Kris Clark, media relations officer for Kelowna RCMP, said Mounties will be out in full force to ensure residents and visitors are enjoying themselves safely. “This is a major weekend for us,” said Clark. “Despite the fact that it’s Center of Gravity, it’s a long weekend in a busy town. We enhance our patrols both to aid the general duty officers and to support…Center of Gravity.” There weren’t too many serious issues associated with last year’s August long weekend, according to Clark. “We put a lot of guys on foot in the downtown core to support both Center of Gravity and the COG House. “The event itself last year was fantastic, it was very well behaved. We had a few minor intoxication issues and some underage intoxication issues, but overall the event went very well.” Clark said the situation gets challenging when tens of thousands funnel out of City Park. But Scott Emslie, organizer of Center of Gravity, said crowd control is a top priority. “When we flush our venues, we have (several) programs in place to move crowds throughout the city—we want to make sure there is a venue for people to go to,” said Emslie. One of those solutions is the COG House. Organizers have rented out the Kelowna Curling Club to provide a club-like atmosphere for Center of Gravity attendees who want to keep the party going. Emslie noted a number of school buses will shuttle people from City Park to various alternate venues, away from the downtown core. “We’re trying to make sure we’re taking care of people inside and outside of our gates.” Both Kelowna crime rates—highest in Canada in 2012—and impaired driving offences this year—359 since January—have kept the

checks as well as roaming patrols, he added. The Combined Special Enforcement Unit will also be assisting RCMP over the long weekend. “With events such as Center of Gravity, we attract a variety of different people. With that comes gang members and their associates,” said Clark. “We enjoy the comfort have having support services like CFSEU, but we’re out there proactively and we’ve got four fulltime teams that are basically dedicated to gathering evidence against gang members, their associates and prolific offenders.” A section of roadway, from Bernard Avenue and Mill Street to Abbott Street and Leon Avenue, will be closed for approximately two hours in order to facilitate pedestrians exiting City Park Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. The road will be closed from about 9:30 to 11:30 p.m. each night with access for shuttle buses only. Parents and designated drivers are asked to

New option for Old Age Security now available

M

any of us are benefiting from advances in health and fitness and as a result, Canadians are living longer. Right here in our beautiful riding of Kelowna-Lake Country, I have had the pleasure of meeting and being inspired by several octogenarians (folks who are 80 going on 60), numerous people who have celebrated their 100th birthday, and one community member who, at 106 years, is still going as strong as an energizer bunny! Living longer, more active lives is a reality that presents all kinds of choices and adjustments, from personal decisions about careers and retirement, to

the need for governments to develop and amend policies and programs. For example, people today are taking many different paths to retireRon ment, with some senCannan iors choosing to work longer. To improve flexibility and choice in retirement planning, the Government of Canada announced the new voluntary deferral option for the Old Age Security (OAS) pension. As of July 1, 2013, Canadians now have the option to voluntarily defer their OAS pension for up to five years in exchange for a higher monthly amount. For every month they delay receipt

MP’S REPORT

of their OAS pension, they will receive an increased monthly benefit of 0.6 per cent per month, up to a maximum of 36 per cent at age 70. People can defer their OAS pension for as little as one month, or as much as 60 months. For example, if you were to turn 65 today and decided to delay receiving your OAS pension for one year, your monthly amount would increase by 7.2 percent (0.6 per cent x 12 months). People should consider their personal situations when deciding when to start receiving their OAS pension, including their financial status, life expectancy, and wants and needs. It is important to note that if people delay their OAS pension, they will not be eligible to receive the Guaranteed Income Supplement, and their spouse

or common-law partner will not be eligible to receive the allowance until their ▼ OAS pension begins. For more information on voluntary deferral and how it may affect your retirement plans, I encourage you to visit the Government of Canada website at: www.servicecanada.gc.ca/oaschanges.

Kettle Railway too hard for non-athletes

To the editor: In my opinion, British Columbia is the most beautiful province in all of Canada, and the Central Okanagan is the most scenic and breathtaking in all of British Columbia. The view you get from the Kettle Valley railway upon the approach to Naramata is awe inspiring. That is the only positive thing that I can say about the whole Okanagan Trestle Tour. Let me share our (my daughter and I) experience with anyone who reads this letter: We started out from Myra Canyon at approximately 8:40 Sunday morning, July 14, having a great time while attending the First Annual Trestle Tour. k There was little traffic ,and still a little cool, so the +[bike] riding was enjoydable. We then approached a tbypass where it was manydatory to dismount and walk a pathway with your lbicycle. , It was a very rug-ged pathway that was cut through the hillside by the parks board. I will again smention rugged, which -is why I stopped many a -time to catch my breath. o While catching my ebreath, I noticed and had -compassion for the elder-

o t▼ g t

ly who were traversing this bypass as well. This was a major goat trail and difficult to navigate. There was a moment of elation when I briefly encountered Trevor Linden in which we share a few words during one of many ‘catch my breath’ periods. This part was not fun for me or the other people I encountered along this bypass. I understand that this bypass was indeed necessary due to recent trestle damage, but it looked like a quick fix. An alternate route should have been an option (maybe starting the tour at June Springs entrance) as this goat trail was difficult to navigate by us, not to mention the three-generation families. I felt that this bypass did not fall under your ‘perfect for all ages and skill levels’ category, which put a bad taste in a lot of folks’ mouths. When we reached the main trail we felt that a first aid station should have been set up for the people battered and bruised coming off this bypass. We finally reached the kilometre 20 station. To our disappointment, all that was available for us and everyone else was water and juice—no nutrition/energy bars. Their

explanation was that they ran out. Moving on, the scenery of Kelowna, the Bennett Bridge and Lakeview Heights again were breathtaking. The rail bed then turned to cut out the Okanagan Mountain Provin-

cial Park to Chute Lake Resort. We nicknamed this stretch the Road to Hell due to the endless sand. There were a few times we had to dismount and walk along this section due to our frustration of riding in this sand. Upon reaching Chute Lake Resort fatigue, hunger and dehydration had set in. The two of us were exhausted. Again, there was water, juice and an electrolyte beverage available, but no nutrition/

energy bars available for eating. Once again, they explained that they ran out! Without the kindness of fellow bikers sharing their energy bars, I’m sure we would have called it quits at Chute Lake Resort. Moving on, after hydrating and a rest, much to our delight the rail bed descended so gravity was to our advantage. This was nice for a while until the rail bed turned into a washboard, rocky, pot hole, butt tenderizing, pure body shaking, hang on tight bicycle ride. When reaching the third rest stop, once again there was water, juice, and an electrolyte beverage and no nutrition/energy bars. So now we’ve traveled two thirds of the tour and still no sustenance. Moving on, the last leg of this journey was just as body shaking, washboard and pot holed as it could ever be. There were many dismount and walk sections. The only thought that was going through our head was that we were almost finished this trip and continued to trudge along. When finally reaching Naramata, all we could think about was something to eat and sitting on something soft and having

a cool beverage or two. We arrived to the Penticton Lakeside Resort to be disappointed again. The beer was semi-luke cold and the first cheeseburger had to be returned due to undercooking. I understand that 70 km of the Kettle Valley Rail is difficult to maintain with heavy equipment to smoothen it out and my daughter and myself are not athletes. Not to mention this was a tour designed for all age groups and skill levels. Maybe a little bit more surveying of the course was in order to better prepare “bikers of all age levels and skills” for what to expect on a gruelling (total of) 80 km ride through the bush. What I don’t understand is that we both paid $100 (a lot of people paid $125) to go through almost eight hours of not so compelling events. I also know that I am writing this letter on the behalf of many people that we spoke to and that they feel the same. You may receive many letters praising this event, but my letter is expressing mine and my daughter’s anger and disappointment.

Okanagan history comes alive in digital stories Okanagan communities have a special reason to celebrate this BC Day, thanks to a new digitization project initiated by the UBC Okanagan library that makes the region’s history accessible to the world. Now the rich history of the Okanagan is available in digital story form. Nearly 70 volumes of the Okanagan Historical Society’s annual reports

were recently digitized. The collection is available online in the library’s digital collections. This publication is one of the longest, continually published historical periodicals in British Columbia, and includes contributions from branch members including Armstrong-Enderby, Kelowna, Oliver-Osoyoos, Penticton, Salmon Arm, Summerland, the Sim-

ilkameen and Vernon. The reports have been used for teaching and learning for decades, with topics ranging from physical geography to cultural studies. The digital collection features more than 15,000 pages, dating from 1926 to modern day, though the most recent years have not been widely published. “The content that has been made publicly avail-

shadow suddenly replaced the heat of the sun and a cool breeze whipped by. Lakeside trees that had been still as can be suddenly rustled their leaves and then bent alarmingly as a strong gust of wind tore at the branches. Calm blue water was replaced by a grey chop as the boat lurched and swayed, rattling our tackle and causing the pail of fish to slop. We looked at each other and then up at the sky, where a dark black cloud had appeared out of nowhere to block the sun. Quickly, we reeled in our lines, revved up the little trolling motor and headed for shore. It was a cold, windy, bumpy ride—quite a contrast to the peaceful, sunny fishing of just a few minutes earlier—but you’re a target for lightning strikes out on the open water during a thunderstorm—so we knew it was worth our lives to get in. That’s just one of the warnings from Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist, who says thunderstorms and lightning are among his biggest weather-related summer concerns. July and August afternoons are the most common times for lightning strikes in Canada, occur-

ring every three seconds, killing up to 10 people annually, injuring another 164 and igniting some 4,000 forest fires. Be aware that if you can hear a clap of thunder, you’re within striking distance of lightning, and the best place to be is indoors—not outdoors. There’s no safe place to be outdoors in a thunderstorm, but if you’re caught and can’t get indoors, keep away from open water, tall objects or anything made of metal, unless it’s grounded by rubber tires. Don’t park or stand near any tall objects that could topple and avoid making yourself the tallest point in the surrounding landscape. Even holding a fishing rod, golf club or umbrella can make you a target for lightning. Seek out low-lying areas amongst thick small trees or bushes, but be aware of the possibility of a flash flood if heavy rain accompanies the storm. If you can get indoors, put as many walls as possible between you and the outdoors; don’t use anything but a cordless or battery-operated telephone and don’t handle electrical equipment; disconnect electrical appliances prior to the storm; and stay inside for 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder. Since many of the fishing and recreation lakes around the Okanagan are either in the valley bottom or at several thousand feet of elevation, be aware that when storms are forecast, there’s more likelihood of thunderstorms at higher

For instance, this weekend there’s a forecast of storm activity, though Lundquist figures there’s not likely to be heavy rain. That means there could be lightning strikes, and with a month of only a drop of rain and close to record-breaking high temperatures behind us, things are becoming tinder dry in the bush. That means forest fires are a danger as well. Microbursts of wind are another weather danger in summer, he warns, especially when the air is as dry as it has been.

Grunwald down from the mountain with a band in tow Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The only snow in Kelowna is the slush in the beachside frozen treats of tourists and yet Ash Grunwald is still heading for Kelowna. This might not seem like much to those who haven’t seen his first couple of shows in the city, but as an unabashed snowboard enthusiast with an incredible knack for mastering the solo act, the Australian fath-

er of two has made touring mountain resort areas a career. Add to this new hot twist a really unique element in his latest album—a band—and fans of the power bluesman will know this tour is a step outside the box for a man who one might never have guessed really had musical boundaries. “My show is constantly evolving and changing,” he said in a telephone interview from California.

He’s taken the oneman kick-drum and guitar situation, moved into electronic by adding an iPad and now returned to a combination of organic and electronic in every show. This said, over the winter he was playing alongside Scott Owen and Andy Strachan of the Australian punk-psychobilly outfit The Living End and launches his seventh studio album, Gargantua, as a collaborative effort with the pair. “I really enjoyed the freedom of having a bass player again,” he said. “That’s not something I’ve really had in my professional career, since I started releasing albums.” Grunwald’s niche is mastering the one-manband style of show, extending his reach on what’s possible with two feet and two hands to create a musical presence to stand against any

his unrelenting approach to work. It wouldn’t be much more than a year since I was there, he says mid-interview. It’s been a year and a half. He’s put out seven albums in nine years and claims he needs to stay on schedule to stay creating. That too is about to change. “I haven’t taken many breaks over the years, but I’m about to take a really long one in Bali,” he said. He is hoping to rally his partner, baby and four-and-a-half-year-old daughter for a long sojourn of surfing and polynesian culture away from the music scene.

The cool thing with this new ambitious effort is the solid guest list Guy has helping out who might actually give him a hit in various genres of music. Kid Rock lends his voice to a solid rocking take of the evergreen Messin’ With The Kid while Guy might score on the country charts with his superb duet (both vocal and guitar) with Keith Urban on the original, soulful country-blues One Day Away. Meanwhile most of Aerosmith shows up to kick ass on the blues rock grinder Evil Twin but maybe the best collaboration comes with Texas hot shot Gary Clark Jr. (who is often mentioned in the same breath as Stevie Ray Vaughn and SRV’s hero Jimi Hendrix).

Mitchell from A10 as Guy proves to his acolyte who the real master of ceremonies remains. The final guest is blues shouter Beth Hart who will evoke memories of Janis Joplin on her full-throated deep blues that also recalls a Stax style with the punctuating horns and organ keyboards. However, my fave track is the haunting Whiskey Ghost, performed by Guy and his band, on the subject of sobriety and the gorilla that is always in the room for the afflicted—complete with snaky grooves and chilling guitar interplay with Rob McNelley. Guy also proves that he has been keeping tabs on contemporary music as he humorously imitates a DJ scratcher with What’s Up With That Woman. Fans will also want to know that a few of these songs are autobiographical where he name-drops one of his early bosses with Muddy Waters, while Guy recalls his impoverished youth on the evocative I Came Up Hard.

This is a short, 10-track album (although there is a ‘bonus’ cut) with only a half dozen fully realized songs, while there are four very short ambient experiments so that the disc clocks in at just 35 minutes. The best and most conventional R&B track here is the straight up love song Nakamarra (the CD ‘bonus’ track has a rap add-on from Q-Tip) that serves as a lovely and mellow make-out song

Meanwhile, the artsy Malika plays wind chimes off a meandering funky bass line while Lace Skull (a telling title) plays around with various tempos and swirling sonics.

Soccer trio heads for Italy

Sun’s first big test to come from Raiders

STAFF REPORTER

Maureen Sharko, Terri Willoughby and Jen Van Every are about to add some international experience to their soccer résumés. The three local women will be in Turin, Italy this weekend for the start of the 2013 World Masters Games. Sharko (Kelowna), Willoughby (West Kelowna) and Van Every (Peachland) are all members of the Kamloops women’s soccer team which will compete in the 35-and-over age division beginning on Saturday. “To be able to compete against teams from around the world will be an exciting opportunity,” said Sharko, a medical doctor in Kelowna. “None of us have had an opportunity like this, we’re usually sending our kids off to tournaments, so this will be really great for all three of us.”

Willoughby is a goalkeeper, Van Every plays defense, while Sharko is a midfielder. The idea to field a team in Kelowna was originally conceived by Sharko and Van Every about a year and a half ago, but a group from Kamloops later stepped in to help ensure a squad from the B.C. Interior would be able to attend the 2013 games. “We ended up having some injuries (in Kelowna) and didn’t really have enough players, so that’s when we got together with the Kamloops group,” said Sharko. “They’re incredibly organized and have done a great job of putting this together.” The Kamloops-Kelowna women warmed up for the games by playing in a couple of tournaments, and performed well enough to win a silver medal.

Three KGCC senior golfers in B.C.’s top 20 Led by Norm Bradley’s fourth-place showing, three members of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club cracked the top 20 at the B.C. Senior Men’s Golf Championship this week at the Eaglepoint Golf Resort. Bradley’s three day score of 2-under par 215 (7372-70) was five shots back of champion Doug Roxburgh of Marine Drive GC who finished at 6under par 210. Grant Oben of the KGCC tied for 13th at 221, while club mate Wayne Schaefer tied for 16th at 223. KGCC’s Brock Waldron tied for 27th place with a 229 score, while Rick Folk of Sunset Ranch was 49th at 233.

Even in the midst of the poorest season in club history in 2012, the Okanagan Sun twice found a way to give the Vancouver Island Raiders all they could handle. Two losses to the Raiders by a combined three points (30-29, 3230) served as confirmation that regardless of what kind of season the teams are having, it remains the B.C. Football Conference’s most intense rivalry. On Saturday night at the Apple Bowl, the two storied foes will hook up for the first time in 2013. As most often seems to be the case when the Sun and Raiders collide, Robbie Yochim expects both clubs will leave it all on the field. “There’s just something in the air, a different feel when we play those guys,” said Yochim. “It’s one of the bigger

If all unfolds as Damon Severson hopes over the next three months, he’ll join an exclusive list of players which includes the likes of Josh Gorges, Shea Weber, Tyler Myers and Jamie Benn. All are former members of the Kelowna Rockets and all have played with Team Canada at past world junior hockey championships. Severson, who turns 19 on Aug. 7, hopes to be the next Rocket to wear the Maple Leaf as he heads to Brossard, Que.,

this weekend for Hockey Canada’s U20 summer developmental camp. Thirty-seven players will attend the camp Aug. 4 to 10, with 22 to be named to Canada’s final roster in December. The 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship will be contested Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden. Severson will be one of 10 rearguards at camp, including five from the Western Hockey League. The 6-foot-2, 198-pound native of Melville, Sask., has played

three seasons with the Rockets and last season had 10 goals, 52 points and a +43 rating in 71 games. Severson was a second-round draft choice (60th overall) of the NHL’s New Jersey Devils in 2012. After two days of practises in Quebec Aug. 4 and 5, the Canadian team will travel to Lake Placid, N.Y., for three exhibition games. Canada plays Finland on Aug. 8, Sweden on Aug. 9 and the United States on Aug. 10.

Still, Beatty said the six-time BCFC champs econtinue to be a dangerous opponent, in large part due to their veteran defence. loaded f “They’re .up front on the D-line, nthey’re linebacking corps is deep and they have a lot of speed and experience,” Beatty said of Van Island. , “It’ll be a good challenge for our O-line, but our strength is in our receiving corps, so we’ll have to throw the ball and throw the ball well to have success. “Obviously, they’ve been a power for a long time,” Beatty added, “so it’ll be a real good test for our young team.” New Sun quarterback Theo Deezar had success against Chilliwack last

week with 173 yards passing and three touchdowns and for his efforts was named BCFC offensive player of the week. Beatty expects Deezar and second-year pivot Cam Bedore will both see playing time again this week against the Raiders. Even though the Raiders went 4-0 against the Sun last season and have enjoyed a wide edge in wins the last half dozen years, Vancouver Island head coach Matt Blokker isn’t about to be swayed by past results. “Everything that’s happened before, you can throw that out the window each time we play,” Blokker said. “There’s a lot of respect between our teams, and once the whistle blows you know it’s going to be a battle. “By what I can see, the Sun have a great opportunity to build a solid team

day camp Aug. 5 to 10 at Kings Stadium in Kelowna. Nearly 70 players from across Western Canada, including 20 from the Okanagan, will be exposed to top level coaches, to both enhance their skills and to gain some insight on how to best pursue a U.S. college scholarship. Coaches from Florida’s Embury Riddle Aeronautical University and Louisburg in North Carolina, as well as a recruiter for a number of Georgia schools will all be on hand for the camp.

In-depth seminars detailing the recruiting process will held throughout the week. “One of the goals is to motivate and inspire these girls, show them what’s possible,” said Frei, who starred as a player at Georgia College and State University. “What I find is that everybody likes the idea of a college scholarship, but doesn’t know how to get one. We try and show them what it takes, the tough workouts you’re going to face, etc. There are so many opportunities out there, it’s just a matter of showing them what they need to look for.” Another aim of the camp is to help Frei and her staff evaluate potential players for the Canada Futures all-star team which will tour Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina for a series of exhibition games in October. A possible trip to Italy in 2014 is also in the works for the Canada Futures program. Along with Frei and Damel, former college allstar Jaimie Murrant will be providing her expertise at the camp, as well as players from the Douglas College program. While the older players from 15 to 18 are looking ahead to college or possibly a spot on the Canada Futures team, Frei hopes younger players at the camp will both improve their skills and gain some insight into a potential future in the sport. “We want to help the younger kids develop, but also to make sure they have a positive experience,” said Frei.

“We want to help all of them brush up on their skills for tryouts and be ready and primed to go when September comes.” On top of it all, Frei is thrilled to be able to offer a high-calibre camp to kids in the B.C. Interior, something that didn’t exist when she was a young player growing up in Kelowna. “When I was a kid I used to have to go away for camps, it would cost an arm and a leg to go to Oregon or somewhere else,”she said. “We’ve got the talent, we’ve got the weather and we’ve go the facilities here. We just haven’t had the opportunities here, so it’s nice to be able to offer this in the Okanagan now.” The players will sleep and eat at the Kelowna Curling Club for the duration of the camp. Frei is grateful to the many individuals and groups in her hometown have opened their arms to the camp and have helped promote girls softball. “I personally want to thank Chris Babcock and the City of Kelowna, Byron Miki and the Kelowna Minor Baseball executive, Geoff White and the Kelowna Falcons, Jock Tyre and the Kelowna Curling Club, Gord Hynes and the Kelowna Major Men’s Fastball executive, Kelowna Minor Fastball and West Kelowna Minor Fastball Association,” Frei said.

Incentive program launched to get dog owners to licence their pets Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A dog licence could cost residents less and offer more rewards in the Central Okanagan as the regional district is offering the first incentive program in B.C. to encourage owners to licence pets. On Thursday, the Regional District of the Central Okanagan launched a new incentive program called My Dog Matters, patterned off a highly-successful initiative by the City of Calgary which brought licensed ownership up to 90 per cent as the result of a business discount program having a licensed pet affords. “Licensing your dog can be your dog’s ticket home in the event that it gets away,” said Bruce Smith, communications officer for the regional district. Current estimates in the Central Okanagan peg the number of dogs with licences at roughly a quarter of the animals in local homes, though it costs only $20 to licence a spayed

or neutered dog and $60 if the animal has not been fixed. “This is a problem and we’re hoping we’ll be able to adjust (some) attitudes,” Smith admitted, saying this carrot-style incentive program will be followed by a stick approach come fall when the region tackles adjusting its fine structure. “We believe that most dog owners in our region are responsible and don’t require much interaction with our dog service staff. “Since these dog owners are doing the right thing and following our bylaw requirement for purchasing a licence and renewing it each year, they will have an opportunity to receive rewards and get something back.” The program offers all owners who have licensed their pets a discount card to incur savings on everything from pet food to restaurant meals. So far, the businesses offering discounts include groomers, dog daycares, pet stores, kennels, veterinarians, trainers, hotels and restaurants.

A study conducted by Leger Marketing for the Canadian Press in May 2002 polled 1503 English and French-speaking Canadians finding—with an accuracy of plus or minus 2.6 per cent—half of Canadians are bothered by dog poop left in public places and 67 per cent would prefer not to see dogs or cats off leash. Estimates secured from a combination of pet food marketing reports, government consumer trends statistics and a City of Kelowna survey peg the number of people who own a dog in the region as ranging anywhere from 30-35 per cent of the population. There are currently 11,000 licensed dogs. It took the City of Calgary 20 years to attain the level of compliance it’s now secured and other cities are now experiencing the same success with the program. Regina, Hamilton and Saskatoon have followed suit. For information go to mydogmatters.ca

h yes…summer in the Okanagan and the living is easy. Not sure about your household but I am always amazed how in the month of August a plethora of long lost friends and relatives suddenly remember I am alive and living in Kelowna. Hmm…wonder why that is? I suppose that anomaly may have been how my parents learned that the key to a quiet summer in Kelowna was to find a private beach spot or camping area nearby and simply hide out—conveniently away from the phone. Hiding was easier then as there was no such thing as a cell phone or a lap top, and thankfully most of the dinosaur population had died off. As a youngster, I was blessed to have an aunt and uncle who rented property at Coral Beach (near Okanagan Centre) where my mom and dad would ship me off for a week or so before they finally made the retreat

I was equally blessed by also spending a lot of time at the Okanagan Anglican Church Camp between the ages of 7 and 13, attending either a church hosted summer camp or a cub camp. Teresa and I paid a visit to the facility last week to visit camp coordinator Keith ‘Poppa’ Thom and a flood of wonderful memories hit me as I walked around the place. I am pleased to say it looks a lot the same as it did some (gulp) 45 years ago. The new additions and the improvements to various buildings have not taken away the charm and

Among the tunes you may hear are Seasons in the Sun, MacArthur Park, To Sir with Love and Indiana Wants Me. This is a dynamite show, filled with the flair and look of a Las Vegas showroom.

Jeff hit a hole-in-one from 171 yards using his 8 iron—and fortunately for him that hole was sponsored by Turner Motors, Coldwell Bankers and RBC. “It’s important to support community events such as this one.

Parkinson SuperWalk fundraiser in Kelowna

Registration is now open for the 18th annual Parkinson SuperWalk to take place Sunday, Sept. 8, 10 a.m. start, at Waterfront Park. Organizations, businesses, families and friends will walk together to help raise critical funds for Parkinson’s disease research, support services and education. Participants can register by visiting www.parkinson.bc.ca. Teams are at the heart of SuperWalk’s success and team captains are champions for spreading the word. Parkinson’s is a reality for the Madsen family, who own and operate Oyama Zipline. Team Oyama Zipline raised an impressive $4,950 at SuperWalk 2012. “This fundraiser is very personal; my mother is affected,” said Jennifer Madsen. “She has to focus so hard to do simple things, like bringing a spoon to her mouth…before the tremors take over.”

Day long weekend approaches, with family picnics and neighbourhood barbecues likely planned by many, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control has some advice to keep summer eating safe. It’s estimated that 1,400 people in B.C. get sick from food-borne illness (food poisoning) daily, with many of these cases going unreported. Summer can be especially bad for these types of illnesses because bacteria can multiply quickly in the hot weather. The symptoms of food poisoning include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and usually go away after one to three days.

t c s t S MARJIE LAMBERT/CONTRIBUTOR r SHUTTLE ATLANTIS looking scorched and grimy just as it returned from space, is the center piece of a new permanent shuttle exhibit at Ken- u nedy Space Center Visitors Center. A visitor (bottom right) gives a perspective on just how big—or small— the shuttle really is. f

Atlantis star of new space shuttle exhibit Marjie Lambert CONTRIBUTOR

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.—Grimy with space dust, scratched, its tiles scorched by the heat of re-entry, the retired space shuttle Atlantis is surprisingly majestic after 33 missions into space. And that’s how you can see it in a new exhibit at Kennedy Space Center, as if it were just departing the International Space Station, tilted at a 43.21-degree angle, coming home. I’m not going to tell you about the first glimpse you’ll catch of Atlantis, centerpiece of its own museum. Instead of simply putting the orbiter on display, Kennedy Space Center and its partners have created a dramatic reveal, a chest-swelling moment that might lose its impact if you knew what was going to happen. In fact, seeing the shuttle up close, its homely nose leading into a turn, its payload bay doors open, its robotic arm extended,

is pretty chest-swelling in itself, even without the ceremony. Mounted at that angle, it looks like it’s still in action.

The shuttle is about the size of a Boeing 737, but if you’re accustomed to seeing it mounted for launch on its larger ex-

ternal fuel tank and solid rocket boosters, it doesn’t look that big. Here though, the orbiter floats just a few feet out of reach, and for the first time—at least for most of us—we see just how big it is: 122 feet long, with a wingspan of 78 feet, its tiled underside looking like the scaly, scarred belly of an enormous snake. “This is the queen of the fleet,” said Jerry Ross, a mission specialist who flew five of his seven shuttle missions on Atlantis and was explaining how things work in the new exhibition. Atlantis, the fourth of NASA’s five shuttles, made its first flight in 1985. It flew for the last time in July 2011, the final flight of the shuttle program. On June 29, Atlantis went on display in a building constructed just for that purpose at Cape Canaveral. The exhibition is called Space Shuttle Atlantis. The exhibit—creative, sophisticated and com-

o h i t prehensive—was builtt by Delaware North, thea company that has oper-C ated Kennedy’s visitorsa complex for NASA sincew 1995. The building andk displays were designedR by PGAV Destinations, a St. Louis design firmw that specializes in attrac-w tions—theme parks, zoos,s aquarium and the like—q and wrote a 10-year mas-t ter plan for the visitorsp complex, including thet shuttle exhibit. m Although they call itd an exhibit, the partnerss have created a $100 mil-f lion museum for the shut-t tle program, of which At-r lantis is the star. Outside, full-size rep-t licas of the shuttle’s ex-m ternal fuel tank and sol-g id rocket boosters stands at the entrance, a dramat-a ic 184-foot tower visiblew from the highway. Insides the 90,000-square-foots building, docents, some oft whom worked in the shuttle program, are availableR to answer questions. t e See Space A19s

Films and exhibits tell about the history of the shuttle program: development of a reusable spacecraft started by NASA in the 1960s; the first shuttle flight by Columbia in 1981; 135 missions by five orbiters between 1981 and 2011. Atlantis is surrounded by the artifacts of its career in space: a full-size replica of the Hubble Space Telescope; an astronaut mannequin suspended from a robotic arm for a spacewalk; scaled-down models of labs from the International Space Station; an interactive touchscreen timeline where guests can look up details of particular missions and crews; an exhibit of space tools; a walk-through replica of the cockpit and control panel; a “shuttle launch experience” in which strapped-in guests feel the sensations of a launch; mock-ups of the shuttle engines, and more. Films tell about the shuttles’ role in ferrying workers and materials to build the International Space Station, and launching and later repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. Twenty-one simulators allow guests to sit at a console and try to land the shuttle on earth, dock it to the International Space Station or maneuver its robotic arm—which was used to deploy equipment from the payload bay. Visitors also can sit on a space toilet and learn how the process works in zero gravity—a question so many people ask that the Endeavor exhibit at the California Science Center in Los Angeles has a similar display. “That’s what everybody wants to know—kids of all ages,” Ross said. When I visited two weeks ago, the exhibit was crowded with people snapping photos, asking questions, trying to work the various interactive displays. Kids scrambled through the space station models, and both children and adults sitting at simulators laughed and frowned as they struggled to maneuver shuttle and robotic arms into place. But mostly, whether they were adults who remembered the rocket programs that preceded the shuttle or youngsters born after the shuttle program was well-established, they stopped and gazed at the shuttle suspended before them. If they recognized Ross or overheard him talking about his experiences in space, they often stopped to shake his hand

or ask if he would pose for a photo with them, recognizing that he embodied the courage of the astronaut corps, the adventure of the shuttle program, and the drama of spacewalks—he did nine, including repair work on the Hubble Space Telescope and the Gamma Ray Observatory and assembly of the International Space Station. In the exhibit, the orbiter’s doors are open, as they were most of the time a shuttle was in orbit. Ross explained that radiators on the inside surface of the doors transmit excess heat from the shuttle into space. Standing near the replica Hubble telescope on display near Atlantis, he explained how the telescope—43 feet long, its solar panels and booms with antenna dishes folded up with it—fit snugly into the 60-foot-long cargo bay. And pointing at the robotic arm, Ross recalled taking a break during a spacewalk while attached to the arm, 35 or 40 feet above the payload bay, on his third shuttle flight: “I had a chance to turn off my helmet-mounted light, look back at the universe,” he said. “I had this incredible feeling that this was what God had intended for me to be.” At the Kennedy Space Center, home to all of the shuttle launches and most landings, the Atlantis museum brings the heavens down to earth.

MARJIE LAMBERT/CONTRIBUTOR

A REPLICA of the Hubble Space Telescope is part of the new permanent shuttle exhibit at Kennedy Space Center Visitors Center. Center, which draws about 1.5 million visitors a year, was one of only three institutions to get a shuttle. The other two, Endeavor and Discovery, went to the California Science Center in Los Angeles and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington. A test orbiter, Enterprise, which did not make it into space, went to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York. Twenty-one institutions competed for a shuttle; the winners paid $28.8 million each for preparation and delivery. NASA removed certain parts, including the engines, for use in the next phase in space exploration, the Space Launch System. Instead, the shuttles now have replica engines on display. In the decommissioning process, the agency also cleaned

toxic propellants and other substances off Atlantis but did not pretty it up. “NASA said ‘We can clean this up for you,’ but we said ‘No, we want every scratch, every ding,’” said Andrea Farmer, spokeswoman for the visitors complex. “You look at this and you realize you’re seeing something remarkable, something that launches like a rocket, orbits like a spacecraft and glides back down like an airplane.” Construction of the building and the exhibits took 18 months. Last November, when three walls were up, crews wheeled Atlantis through the open fourth side and into position, then built the fourth wall. The shuttle exhibit helps beef up the core of the visitors complex, where the elements are so spread out that visitors have to be bused between them—past the Vehicle Assembly Building, where rockets and shuttles were assembled; out to an observation gantry with a view of Launch Pad 39A (lift-off point for most

shuttle launches); over to the building that houses a replica of the Launch Command Center and the enormous Saturn V rocket; then back to the visitors center. Plans are for the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame, six miles west of the complex, to eventually move there, too.

MOTORING ▼ ROADTEST

Ford’s C-Max Energi offers a greener people mover Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

My wife accuses me of having two conflicting personalities. I prefer the term ‘complex.’ On one hand, I lack the patience for eco-friendly motoring, and am less than euphoric when some do-gooder thwarts my progress with achingly slow acceleration and early, gentle braking. On the other hand, my love for over-powered rides with turbo fours, sixes and gas-guzzling V8s is challenged by my thrift. Frequent trips to the gas pump hike my blood pressure even more than ‘green’ slowpokes. So while a neck-snapping hybrid like the BMW ActiveHybrid3 may relieve my inner turmoil, I lack that kind of budget, and could buy two Ford C-Max Energi plugin hybrids—my tester for the week—for about the same price.

Admittedly, this fivedoor tall wagon doesn’t come close to matching the Bimmer in style and performance, but it’s far more practical, and will carry five passengers— and all their stuff—comfortably, and with loads of tech goodies to keep them informed and entertained. In terms of form and function, think Mercedes B 250, Mazda5, Kia Rondo, and the Prius V. C-Max wears a similar shape, but is one of the most fetching among them with its bold Fusion-style grille, wraparound projector headlamps, 17-inch alloys, roof spoiler, and sharp character line that bisects both door handles. The Energi model— starting at $36,999—is top dog in the three-car lineup that also includes two standard hybrids: the SE at $27,199 and SEL at $30,199. The Energi has a long list of standard equipment, and plenty of options.

One of the first features I tested was the famed hands-free liftgate. With smart key in pocket, I briefly waved my foot under the rear bumper to release the latch and raise the power liftgate. So simple, yet so practical—especially when it’s raining and you’re loaded down with groceries. With all those big brains in the auto industry, it’s a wonder nobody thought of this sooner. Like all wagons, the C-Max shines at cargo carrying, but the plugin’s larger battery takes a bite from its capacity. The regular hybrid offers 694 litres of space behind the 60/40 second row and 1,490 litres with all seats folded flat. The Energi provides 544 and 1,212 litres with a raised deck to accommodate its lithium-ion battery pack. The other four doors open to a surprisingly roomy interior. PassenSee Ford B3

NEIL MOORE/CONTRIBUTOR

CALL IT a tall wagon or ‘mini’ minivan, the C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid is a practical people carrier with the added benefit of a hybrid powertrain that can operate for up to 43 km on electricity alone.

Driver info to the max

Ford from B1

gers are treated to loads of head and legroom in both rows of seating, which in the C-Max Energi is heated up front and trimmed in leather. One nifty feature is the second row in-floor storage. These footwell compartments are small, but ideal for hiding iPods, smartphones and other valuables. It’s in the instrument panel and centre console, however, where Ford has really invested its energy. You’d expect a hybrid to provide loads of driver info, and the C-Max takes this to the max. Let’s start with the dual-LCD SmartGauge that provides real-time information to help get the most from this vehicle. If you’re unfamiliar with the benefits of a

“plug-in,” C-Max’s larger battery gives this model substantially more EV capability, making it closer to a range-extended electric vehicle like the Chevy Volt, than a typical hybrid. The regular hybrid isn’t designed for sustained EV mode, but can go up to 100 km/h on electrons only. But capability isn’t reality, and 43 clicks without petrol is a pipe dream for most. Turn on lights, air conditioning, audio system, and other accessories, and the max range will plummet. And that doesn’t account for driving style. Where I’m heading is that to avoid trips to the pump, a little monitoring and coaching are in order. The C-Max’s ‘brake coach’, just left of the speedometer, displays

your braking efficiency every time you hit the pedal. Brake late and hard, and you’ll get a failing grade. I was awarded 41 per cent on one abrupt stop. Brake gently and gradually, and you’ll be scoring in the nineties. The “efficiency leaves,” one of several optional screens to the right of the speedo, is a graphic representation that grows leaves and vines when you drive efficiently, and sheds its foliage when you don’t. At one point, my display was a sorry equivalent of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree, but that was soon remedied with a little restraint. Other readouts offer instant and historical fuel economy, trip data, timeelapsed fuel consumption and kilometres to empty, not to mention battery status and energy usage.

NEIL MOORE/CONTRIBUTOR

FUEL consumption and battery use displays, along with trip data and “efficiency

leaves” help you monitor and modify your driving style for greener motoring. Leaves and vines grow as you drive more efficiently, and fade when you don’t.

NEIL MOORE/CONTRIBUTOR

THERE’S no shortage of voice-activated infotainment features in the C-Max Energi with Ford’s SYNC and

MyFordTouch system, accessed through the eight-inch touchscreen. In addition, this plug-in hybrid coaches and informs the driver with dual 4.2-inch screens on either side of the speedometer. I paid little attention to any of these until trying to survive on battery alone. If, like me, you’re blessed with a short commute, the C-Max Energi may rarely visit the pump. Of course, you can’t run in EV mode without properly charging the unit via a standard 120-volt outlet (takes overnight) or an available 240-volt station that takes about 2.5 hours. Regenerative braking alone won’t do it. One helpful feature is the charging port’s illuminated ring. This works best at night, but each quadrant lights as the battery charges, allowing you to monitor its progress from a nearby window. Next morning, and after starting the C-Max, I simply pushed the “EV

Now” button, and was operating as silently as a golf cart. Albeit with only 30 km to start, and not the 43 I’d expected. Had I wanted to save the full charge for later— and, for example, not waste it on an immediate highway run—I could have selected “EV Later.” Acceleration sans gas is mild, providing no kick for passing or merging into traffic. But for most situations, it’s easy to forget you’re driving on electricity alone. Which is really no gamble, because when you run out, the petrol engine seamlessly takes over. The C-Max Energi then returns to full hybrid operation. Performance is surprisingly peppy with the entire system on tap, as

the gas/electric duo makes a combined 195 hp, taking the vehicle’s 1,750 kg curb weight smartly up to speed. The Energi comes with some additional goodies like pushbutton start, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and the SYNC with MyFordTouch infotainment system that in my tester also included optional navigation and upgraded audio. Transport Canada posts a Canadian fuel economy rating of 1.9Le/100km (150 MPGe city/hwy/comb) using electricity and gas. The U.S. numbers are more conservative, but my real-world results were, according to the on-board computer, 5.9Le/100km. That could have im-

proved, had I been lighter on the pedal and more diligent about using EV mode. But based on experience, including a recent run in the larger Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, I can achieve similar results in a regular hybrid. Bottom line, if your decision on choosing the Energi over any other C-Max is a financial one, you’ll not likely recoup the price premium any time soon. But that doesn’t diminish the concept. Until batteries become vastly more efficient and/ or public quick-charge outlets become as ubiquitous as gas stations, pure electric vehicles will re-

Kia goes upmarket with Cadenza sedan Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

Once known as the builder of “cheap and cheerful” autos, Kia has been on a tear as of late. Much of the credit goes to design chief Peter Schreyer, who after making his mark at Volkswagen and Audi, has taken the company lineup from drab to delightful. But the automaker’s success is down to more than just appearances, as today’s Kia models not only look sharper both inside and out, but benefit from better build quality and loads of tech that was once the domain of vehicles much higher up the pricing ladder. The 2014 Cadenza is the new flagship for this Korean automaker. If you haven’t been paying attention to the

new Kia, you may think the Cadenza is simply a Schreyer spin on an existing Hyundai – and to that point, you’d be partially correct. The Cadenza, known as the K7 in overseas markets, isn’t based on the current Hyundai Genesis sedan, but on the Azera which is still available in the U.S., although discontinued here after 2009. And because of this connection, it gets the same engine – a DOHC 3.3-litre V6 with gasoline direct injection that produces 293 hp and 255 lb/ft of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters that drives the front wheels. The rear-wheel-drive Genesis, on the other hand, is powered by a 3.8-litre mill that delivers more brawn (333 hp and 291 lb/ft), but in a slightly

mium amenities. And on the latter two counts, the Cadenza does not disappoint. Not that this near-luxury, full-size sedan is a slouch when you plant the pedal. Its 1,700 kilograms will launch from rest to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds, under the control of an autobox that does its job quietly and smoothly – even under hard throttle. Cadenza’s Euro styling, however, moves me even more than its powerplant. With its broad

shoulders, wide stance and pronounced wheel arches over the massive 19-inch alloys on my Premium tester, this car looks firmly planted.

gant silhouette and overall look that wouldn’t be out of place on the Autobahn. In rear, LED taillights and twin ovoid exhausts complete the Cadenza’s polished exterior. This vehicle is available in two trim levels: base at $37,795 and Premium (as tested) at $44,995), and the differences between the two, aside from wheel size (you get 18-inchers on base), and the higher trim’s panoramic sunroof, are really more about tech. For the extra $7,200 you also get smart cruise control, blind spot detection and lane departure warning – the latter two of which you can turn off when, not if, they become annoying. Premium also provides driver’s seat cooling and memory, rear heated seats, power tilt/ telescopic steering (also heated), electric rear sunshade and “hydrophobic” front door glass. You wouldn’t think the latter feature to be a big deal, but its ability to shed water was much appreciated during a recent record downpour where the front wipers and clear side windows helped keep me safe on a very busy highway. Still, even the ‘basic’ vehicle offers a lengthy list of standard features that includes power folding and heated side mirrors with signal repeaters, rearview camera with parking sensors, naviga-

tion, leather seats (heated up front) with eight-way power adjust for the driver and four-way for the front passenger, smart key with pushbutton start, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing windshield, and Infinity 12-speaker audio system with Bluetooth. There’s loads of knee room in back, where you can really stretch out, and separate ventilation for a cool breeze on rear passengers. The armrest drops down to reveal a pass-through to the trunk. As you’d expect in a full-size sedan, the Cadenza’s trunk is huge. At 451 litres, there’s ample room for four golf bags or luggage for a week on the road. Sure, that pales next to any SUV, but many people who buy these behemoths don’t need them, and for today’s smaller families, a better-handling premium sedan makes a brilliant alternative to an average sport utility. Especially one with R the levels of craftsmanship I found throughout, in its premium leather and abundant soft-touch materials, chrome bezels and polished woodgrain inserts, and in the minute panel gaps that

wouldn’t give up the slightest squeak or rattle over rough pavement. Even the din of rush hour traffic barely penetrated the passenger cabin, which was Lexus-quiet. So is there a future for a $37K-plus Kia? You might have asked the same of Toyota and Nissan a few decades ago, now happily selling Avalons and Maximas for about the same money.

Kia may be new to this segment, but as we’ve seen with Hyundai’s growing success, the Korean manufacturers are quick studies, and now worthy contenders in the premium automotive marketplace.

Born May 19, 1941 In Kelowna, BC. Sue passed away peacefully on July 22, 2013 in the presence of her beloved husband Brian, who treasured all of the 48 years he was given with her. She will be greatly missed but always remembered by their four children, Darren Stovel (Ursula), Stephanie Stovel-Killingsworth (Thom), Mark Stovel (Lynn), Jennifer Stovel-Mellon (Cary), and her seven grandchildren; Ryan, Andrew, Madelyn, Maia, Adam, Dani and Spencer. Also feeling an immense loss are her brother Frank Lauer (Jean), her sisters; Cynthia Pearce and Margaret Ivancic, and her niece Katherine Ivancic. She was a cherished aunt to her many nieces and nephews. Sue grew up on her parents’ orchard in Summerland. She took her elementary teacher training at Victoria College and started her teaching career in Quesnel before moving to Pentiction, Fernie and finally the Okanagan. Many of her students regarded her as the best teacher they ever had, having a life-changing impact on them. Sue loved her family first and nature second.

▼ OF PRIME INTEREST

Understanding mortgage options So what exactly is a collateral mortgage? A collateral charge mortgage has non-standard terms—usually an unspecified dollar amount registered on the property. So your current equity and any future equity belongs to the lender on the terms they set. A collateral charge also allows the lender to do things like change your interest rate, increase your loan amount and use your mortgage payment to pay down other debts you have with that lender if you are late on payments. Typically, the lender will register as much as 125 per cent of the property value, even though the amount may not have been advanced to you initially and allows the balance of the loan to float up or down depending on your use. Since the collateral mortgage allows for the “re-advancing” of the principal, like a revolving line of credit, the balance can and very often does rise, with most people ignorant about the debt hole they are digging for themselves. This is a product designed to lead you further and further into debt. Effectively, collateral charges also allow lenders to change the interest rate and/or loan more money to qualified borrowers after closing. All you’ll likely have to do to

trigger an increase in interest rate is miss a payment. In comparison, this scenario can’t happen with a traditional mortgage. The collateral mortgages are being registered with rates as high as prime plus 10 per cent (regardless of what they initially offer you) and lenders can cover their potential losses by increasing the rates if they get a whiff of potential default. When your mortgage comes up for renewal, the bank can offer you whatever rate they choose. If you don’t like that option, you must pay significant legal fees to move the mortgage to another lender. And sure, the new lender will let you have access to more money, but you also have to qualify for the extra funds and if their qualifying criteria has changed you may not qualify. As well, there is no guarantee what rate you will be offered. A collateral loan also involves other debt you may have and under Canadian law a lender may seize equity to cover other debt you have with the same lender. So, in essence, you’re securing all your loans—be it credit cards, lines, car loans, or overdraft that you may have with a bank—with your collateral loan. A conventional mortgage let’s you establish a set amount you are

Flaws from B20

borrow, the rate for the term you have chosen and the amortization so you’ll know exactly when you will have the mortgage paid off. You know what your payments will be for the term and if you stay on track the property is yours at the end of the amortization. Should you need to borrow more using a second mortgage or by registering a home equity line of credit, that option is available. If you don’t borrow any more money against the property, the principal balance on a conventional mortgage goes only one way— down. And now most Canadian major chartered banks will accept “transfers” of conventional mortgages from one to the other at little or no cost Collateral vs. conventional—it’s the classic case of buyer beware. Be sure you take on a mortgage that is best suited to you and your lifestyle before you sign up.

white noise (or downright loud noise) and poor performance from a unit that is the wrong size for heating or cooling the area. If there’s a lack of insulation or an inefficient placement of vents, residents can be hot or cold most of the time, which is a huge but preventable flaw. High ceilings, too many windows and too few windows can add to heating and cooling costs.

WATER MISMANAGEMENT

In communities without running water, it’s just good planning to dig the waste hole some distance from the home and cooking area. Why, then, do some western homes have bathrooms next to the dining room and the kitchen? The answer is plumbing placement. Having a shared hotwater source between the kitchen and bath, as well as a means to have pip-

ing curve downward to eliminate wafting upward fumes, makes for an unusual proximity for eating, and well, eliminating. The bathroom itself can have its own problems, since the places you wash your body are right next to the toilet. Choosing historic home living often means accepting that your dinner guests may be uncomfortable using your one and only bathroom until after the other guests have cleared from the table outside of the bathroom door. Placement, arrangement and number of bathrooms are considerations for growing families, and accessibility can also be a factor for aging families. In a split-level home in particular, up- and downstairs mobility is important, as is getting children and parents off to school and work on time each morning.

DISORGANIZED KITCHEN

Kitchens can be places for gathering and eating

or spaces just for putting meals together. How well the kitchen matches the needs of the people using it can make or break a home buying or remodeling decision. Choosing between an efficient, set-off space just for cooking and an open layout for prepping and socializing is a big consideration for many, and making a better kitchen has been an ongoing task of design. A 1946 U.S. study counted the actual steps housewives used to prepare a meal, finding that an “ideal layout” would lead to a dinner needing only 70 steps and the least efficient would need 454. Their suggested design put appliances, cabinetry, and drawers on just two walls of the kitchen; this layout may be a forerunner to contemporary kitchens that use islands for additional counter and storage space and for the added eat-in counter, which changed the “L” to a “U” design.

▼ HOME DESIGN

Design flaws that can be avoided Good interior home design doesn’t have to be extravagant and expensive—it can be simple and useful in its beauty, making use of natural elements. Often, it’s a matter of looking to things that are important to you apart from conventional ideas and to what the idea of home means to you and your family. Poor planning and small budgets can lead to design mistakes, but often flaws become apparent as newer and better ways of home planning and construction come into favour. Below are some common design flaws. If you find some of these problems in your home, take heart—you’re not alone, and there are ways to resolve the situation.

TOO MUCH STORAGE

Walk-in closets may bolster images of success and comfort, but having all of that stuff around can take away from creating a haven in your home. Too little or too much storage clutters lives. If you have too much storage space, you might fill it with more clutter, but if you don’t have enough, you may not have room for a growing family. “The walk-in closet is an incredible waste of space. It is the biggest waste of space, but people like it,” says architect Mark Sexton. “I’m all for storage, but it should be flexible.”

TOO LITTLE CIRCULATION

It’s not a new phenomenon, but many people in industrialized countries get very little fresh air. We often wake in

W

CONTRIBUTED

CHOOSING between an efficient, set-off space just for cooking and an open layout for prepping and socializing is a big consideration for many home buyers. heated or air-conditioned rooms, commute with car, subway and bus windows sealed tight, and spend days in hyper-sealed work spaces. Many older homes have windows painted shut from lack of use, and some newer home windows are nailed down to prevent potential home invasion. Sealed and shuttered windows create a safe feeling and can prevent drafts in colder climates, but they also pose a safety hazard when the need to escape from fire or other home emergencies arises.

POORLY LIT AND UNDERPOWERED

When asking one of the most acclaimed architects of the 20th century, Richard Meier, what he thinks is a common de-

sign flaw in the average home, he replied, “Too few houses take advantage of natural light.” A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study found that in a typical building, lighting accounts for 25 to 40 per cent of energy consumption. Buyers and sellers may rave about how many windows a property has, but even natural lighting has problems. Although the warmth from the sunlight streaming through all those windows may be welcome in winter, in summertime the windows may need to be covered to keep temperatures down. You also have to keep all those windows clean. And then there’s the matter of privacy. Consider the placement of win-

dows and perform draft and privacy checks at different times of day. Having a neighbour’s window too near your bathroom or bedroom windows may be a little too close for comfort if you don’t want to be seen or heard in private moments. If a space is in need of lots of artificial lighting, electric outlets and extension cords, or a large investment in window coverings, the overall design could be a problem.

POOR MULTI-USE CHOICE

Having an office, sewing, craft, reading or multi-purpose room may seem like a great idea. But if it becomes a dim dumping ground of boxes and bags with a closed door, it’s a project in need of completion that likely will inspire dread.

You probably won’t use a family game room if your family doesn’t play games, and you won’t want to spend time in a recreation room that looks like a museum. Keep it real about what works for you and what you already do, instead of what you could see yourself doing in a space.

HVAC MATTERS

Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) is ideally a humble, hard-working and barely noticed element of the overall home. Unfortunately, issues of placement, upkeep and installation are common and often costly. Poor HVAC planning can lead to mold growth from too much moisture, See Flaws B18

ith a saturated real estate market and fewer buyers out shopping as the summer months come to an end, homeowners wanting to sell have to look at every chance to one-up the competition, so perhaps looking into some cost-friendly renovations is the way to go. The idea to ‘go green’ with energy efficient appliances, windows, doors and more will help you get more bang for your buck. REAL ESTATE Today, with the cost RUNDOWN of living so high, homeowners are looking for every opportunity to save money.
