SD67 REHIRES ADMINISTRATOR Joe Fries

Western News Staff

The cash-strapped Okanagan Skaha School District has rehired a former administrator to help tap into new sources of revenue. Former secretary-treasurer Ron Shongrunden was due to retire this summer after 33 years with the district. Instead, he signed on for another year in the newly created position of director of business development and technology. Shongrunden is expected to leverage the district’s existing technology infrastructure, which

includes a fibre optic network and data centre, to improve services for students, save money and generate additional revenue. The creation of the new position is “an investment,” said superintendent Wendy Hyer. “An example would be, if we could improve our infrastructure, we could provide (telecommunications) service to our outlying schools instead of having to pay Telus for service,” she explained. The superintendent compared the addition of the new post to the district’s recent spending on efforts to recruit more international stu-

dents, who pay $12,000 a year for tuition.

Hyer acknowledged, however, that the district has been criticized in the past for hiring back retired administrators who may also be collecting pensions. “We’re sensitive to the fact that people say, ‘Hey, how come you hired someone who may or may not be getting a pension?” Hyer said. But “when we interview someone for a position in this district, that’s not something we consider,” she continued, “and in fact, that’s not even something we’re allowed to ask them.” Hyer noted Shongrunden helped create the existing technology busi-

ness and, despite advertising the new job twice last year, the district was unable to find someone to fill it. The school board balanced its 2013-14 budget partly through cuts, including elimination of staff positions and the gifted-student program in middle schools, and reductions to maintenance and custodial services. Noting those cuts, Okanagan Skaha Teachers’ Union president Leslea Pryde said her members will want to know where the district found cash for Shongrunden’s new job.

Abandoned kittens make way to SPCA Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

It is one of the busiest times of the year for staff at the Penticton SPCA, and finding six kittens abandoned alongside the busy highway just outside Penticton didn’t help. “Kitten season we call it,” said Jamie Armer, South Okanagan-Similkameen SPCA manager. “We took in the last six weeks probably over 70 cats and kittens which is a shame.” Armer said the SPCA received a call on Tuesday from a couple stopped at a Highway 97 pullout, just outside of Penticton, who found three kittens inside a carrier cage with the door open. The couple were advised to have a look to see if there was any other kittens within the proximity and to close the door. “I arrived about 15 minutes after the call and found the carrier with actually six kittens inside,” said Armer. “There was a bit of junk food in there. Someone had put some fries and a bit of milkshake in the cage with them.” From June to October cats and kittens mostly come in as strays or surrenders, and although shocking to find kittens abandoned in such a dangerous situation next to the busy highway, Armer said this is just one of many heartbreaking stories. “Besides the 70 cats we have taken in, we also had another 26 cats surrendered from owners. It is a lot, when you

think we are only supposed to house a maximum of around 40 at any one time,” said Armer. Those who left the animals abandoned on the side of the road could face criminal charges, but Armer said there would have to be conclusive evidence which is tough to come by in these situations. He said the better choice would have been for the owners to call the SPCA to figure out a plan for the kittens. “We are not here to make people feel bad,” said Armer. “We are here to try and educate people so if they end up in that circumstance once, perhaps we can educate them so they don’t end up in that circumstance again.” The SPCA manager suggests people with unwanted pets call them first. Turning up at the shelter doorstep isn’t always the best either because the shelter is quite full and there can be a waiting list. The SPCA also has two fundraising events coming up with the Dog Days of Summer at See Ya Later Ranch Winery in Okanagan Falls on Sept. 1 and Paws For A Cause on Sept. 8 at Gyro Park. Registration is at 10:30 a.m. with the walk at noon. “Paws For A Cause is our biggest event of the year. We encourage people to register, raise some money and come out with their dogs for the walk and enjoy the day,” said Armer, of the event, which aims to raise $32,000.

SPCA emPloyee Amanda Reeve holds two of the six kittens dropped off on the side of Highway 97 just north of Penticton earlier this week. The kittens were in a pet carrier, the door of which had been left open but none are believed to have escaped or been injured.

Candidates tackle familiar questions Hopefuls split on importance and role of regional district Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

While it wasn’t the massive numbers of candidates Penticton has seen in past municipal elections, the Tuesday evening forum was no less nerve-wracking for those seeking the single mayor and council seats on Sept. 7. In the 2011 municipal election, the stage was filled with 19 candidates, but for this by-election, there are only three running for mayor and five for the single council seat up for grabs. The questions, however, remained much the same, ranging from tourism, jobs and the economy to openness and transparency. Garry Litke, who gave up his council seat to run for mayor, admitted he was anxious going into the debate. “I am fairly comfortable around the council table, I’ve done the homework, I know the issues,” said Litke. “This is like, what’s going to happen?” Litke had cause to be nervous. As the only member of the current council running in this byelection, he was alone in facing questions challenging council decisions like those leading to the Eckhardt hockey dorm. Vic Powell, also running for mayor, called the hockey dorm a back-room deal gone wrong, and it was ridiculous for the city to have let the developer start work before the final closing date on the sale. “City council and staff let the taxpayers down. Now we’re on the hook for about $3 million,” said Powell, a position echoed by the third mayoral candidate, Brian Henningson. Litke admitted the Eckhardt land deal “certainly went sideways,” but questioned where Powell had got his $3 million figure.

Vic Powell (right) takes his turn at the mic, while fellow mayoral candidates Brian Henningson (left) and Garry litke (centre) listen during the all candidates forum Tuesday. candidates for the vacant council seat had their own session earlier that evening.

The city, he said, claimed a $50,000 security bond and used that to clean up the property. And while costs of the legal actions launched by the contractors were mounting, they are expected to be in the tens of thousands, not millions. “My objective, if elected, will be to settle that. It is currently in court,” said Litke. “We need to get that title clear. There is a lot of interest in that property.”

A rumour that city council had voted in camera to give senior city staff significant salary increases to bring them to par with other communities, like Chilliwack, also targeted Litke. Henningson, who only moved to the city a year ago, often found himself commenting that he wasn’t fully in the loop on some of the issues. He said he just wanted to be honest with

the audience. “I didn’t want to make something up, I don’t have the full financials. I don’t want to play around with taxpayers’ money,” said Henningson. “I just want to let them know I am the straight-up goods, I am there to get the best taxpayer value.” Those running for council had their share of tough questions to wrangle, like the recently adopted downtown revitalization plan. Pat Buchanan worried there was too much concentration on improving the lower part of Main Street, and that the city should adopt a policy of seeing that needs are met first, a position that Lynn Kelsey agreed with. The city’s infrastructure should be taken care of before beautification, said Kelsey, but there needs to be a balance between the two. That concept of balance was shared by all the council candidates, though their opinions diverged when questioned about the value of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen to Penticton. For Kevin Andrews, the regional district has a valuable function. Pat Buchanan agreed it has value, but Penticton has to come first and the city needs to care for its own needs before investing through the RDOS. Lynn Kelsey was the strongest supporter of the RDOS, stating that communities working together build a stronger presence for the area. The RDOS is an extra level of government citizens don’t need, according to Andre Martin, who would like to see outlying areas like Westbench and Naramata amalgamate. “To me that makes more sense, it’s less government that we have to pay for,” he said. Katie Robinson, who was an RDOS director for six years, had a sharply different opinion on amalgamation. “People in the outlying area don’t want to pay the same taxes we pay nor do we want to take on their debts, said Robinson. “Sewers and water systems are very expensive.”

REHIRE - Funding for new position comes from separate budget “There’s always questions when there’s money being spent and we’re told there is no money,” said Pryde. “I’ll be hearing a lot about it from teachers. They’ll be concerned.” Hyer said privacy legislation prevented her from disclosing Shongrunden’s salary. Trustee Ginny Manning, who chairs the school board, said she didn’t have the figure available. Shongrunden declined to reveal if he’s receiving a pension and what he’s being paid, but said it’s less than what he made as secretarytreasurer. According to the most recent publicly available information,

Shongrunden earned $131,244 in the 2012 fiscal year. Manning said the position will be paid for out of the district’s technology budget, which is kept separate from regular operating accounts, although it’s been tapped before to help offset funding shortfalls. The technology system, which counts the regional district as a customer, turned a $188,000 profit last year. Shongrunden hopes more business can be found to help add money to instructional budgets. “Instead of cutting each year, we’re trying to generate some dollars so we don’t have to do those (budget) cuts,” he said.

At the moment, however, Shongrunden is still helping with secretary-treasurer duties. His replacement, Bonnie Roller Routley, began in July but is recovering from an injury sustained outside of work, so they still haven’t completed the hand-over. Shongrunden hopes to tie up those loose ends and set the technology business on a path to financial success before he finally walks away. His new contract expires in July 2014. “We’ve got a combination of a lot of things going on at once,” he Former SecreTary-TreaSurer ron Shongrunden has been hired for said, “and they just needed someone another year with the school district. to help get through this.” File PHoTo

DUNCAN KEITH TO BRING STANLEY CUP TO PENTICTON Two-time Stanley Cup champion Duncan Keith will celebrate his 2013 Stanley Cup victory with the City of Penticton on Saturday, August 31.

Deputy Mayor Helena Konanz. “Top athletes come to Penticton for high-performance training in a variety of disciplines. This event proves Penticton is a hotbed for hockey talent, and we hope fans of all ages come out to show their support.” Every member of the Chicago Blackhawks team enjoys one day with the Stanley Cup and August 31 will be the second time Duncan Keith has shared his day with the entire community. This year, a special invite has been extended to players of the Upper Dek Vees, B.C.’s only special needs hockey team and a group that holds great meaning to Duncan Keith.

The NHL defenseman, Olympic Gold Medalist, Norris Trophy winner, Penticton Panthers (now the Vees) alumnus and Penticton Minor Hockey prodigy wants to share the celebration with his hometown. The public is invited to pay tribute to Duncan Keith and view the Stanley Cup at 11am at Gyro Park.

“By sharing his day with the cup with all of us, Duncan Keith is paying the ultimate tribute to the City of Penticton. He is one of Penticton’s hockey heroes and we expect this to be a special day,” says Larry Lund, chair of the local tribute committee.

“We’re thrilled that the Stanley Cup is coming to Penticton and the community can share in Duncan Keith’s achievement,” said

The quick actions of Oliver fire chief Dan Skaros and paramedics may have saved a boy’s life. Skaros was at an emergency services meeting with B.C. Ambulance officials when he smelled smoke and heard a commotion about 1.5 blocks away at Centennial RV Park. At the same, around 4:20 p.m. on Wednesday, the Oliver Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a fire. “When Chief Skaros arrived there was a lot of smoke coming out of the RV. He got some people to assist him to find a ladder then found something to break the window in the back of the RV. He was able to find a boy and remove him from the trailer,” said Rob Graham, fire fighter and media officer for the Oliver Volunteer Fire Department. The eight-year-old boy was lifted off the bed in the RV then transferred over to a paramedic and taken to the South Okanagan General Hospital. “I do know at this time the boy is in Vancouver at a burn unit and has received second-degree burns to 40 per cent of his upper body,” said Graham, adding the fire chief has minor abrasions on his arm from smashing the window to get into the RV. “For anybody who goes through something like that, there is a lot of emotion going on after. He did a great job and was in the right place at the right time. When you know there is someone inside, there is a lot of things that just take over and you don’t really think about your own safety. You just want to make sure those people involved are safe,” said Graham. The firefighter said from what he understands the family was new to town and staying at the campground. Graham said the fire department is not certain at this point what the cause of the fire is, but it is not suspicious.

Parti Quebecois has a dream

This week marked the 50th anniversary of the Great March on Washington D.C. led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The walk, a non-violent affair, sought the end of racism and demanded equality not only for black Americans but all Americans regardless of skin colour. It was Aug. 28, 1963 that King delivered his I have a dream speech. Given the time that has elapsed since Dr. King’s speech, it would only be reasonable to expect that attitudes towards people of different cultures, i.e. non-white, have improved. It is 2013 after all and we do live in Canada. So what to make of the Parti Quebecois’ recent decision to introduce a bill to ban a handful of religious symbols from hospitals, schools and government offices? The ban, the Parti Quebecois argues, will help establish Quebec as a secular community as envisioned in their recently proposed Charter of Quebec Values. For example, the wearing of the yarmulke in schools or hospitals, government buildings would become illegal if the legislation were to pass. Also on the proposed list of banned religious symbols are veils, turbans, hijabs, and even crucifixes. The latter are likely banned as the sacrificial lambs for the white folk. Are these symbols really a threat to a secular society? Does a doctor, nurse, lawyer or politician wearing a turban threaten Quebec’s fabric, it’s PENTICTON joie de vivre? WESTERN Not likely. The proposed ban on religious symbols has nothing to do with Quebec becoming more secular and everything to do with becoming more pure. The Parti Quebecois also has a dream, it is white and speaks French.

Syrian dilemma all about choices A dilemma is by its very nature a choice between evils, and that is what now faces other countries over the use of poison gas in Syria. All the options may be “on the table,” but none of them are good. Nobody denies that poison gas was used in rebel-held parts of Damascus on Aug. 21, not even the Syrian government. Medecins Sans Frontieres says 3,600 patients with symptoms of poisoning were treated at three hospitals it supports in Damascus after the attack, and that at least 355 of them died. The real total may be as high as 1,000 dead. That’s a whole week’s normal death toll in the Syrian civil war in just one day. After that, however, we run out of facts. The rebels claim that the Baathist regime was responsible, while the Syrian government says the rebels did it themselves in the hope of triggering foreign military intervention. Sending United Nations inspectors will not settle that argument: if nerve gas was actually used, it must have

come from government stocks, but that doesn’t mean that the regime did it. Everybody knows that the Syrian military have stocks of poison gas, but what’s happening in Syria is a civil war.

So what to do about But it is manifestly it?

France has already called for the use of force, and the United States and Britain seem to be teetering on the brink. After a 40-minute phone call last Saturday President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron agreed that “a significant use of chemical weapons would merit a serious response.” But that is about the least they could say, in the circumstances. U.S. military intervention is unlikely to lead to the outcome American foreign policy really desires: the preservation of Syria’s existing secular state, with a change of leadership at the top. If Assad is overthrown, he’ll probably pull the whole edifice down with him. If the rebels win, it’s almost certainly the Islamist radicals who will take over. So if a military intervention is practically bound to end in tears, then why not just skip it? Because chemical weapons are classed as “weapons of mass destruction”, and there is an international treaty

banning their use. If you let Assad get away with this, goes the argument, he will have breached an important international taboo on the use of WMD. Well, not really. Biological weapons (“germ warfare”) are truly horrifying weapons of mass destruction, banned by treaty, and nobody has ever used them. Nuclear weapons can kill by the billions; they have never been banned, but they haven’t been used in war for 68 years now. Poison gas, however, is not really a weapon of mass destruction at all. Napalm, fuel-air explosives and cluster bombs are just as nasty as poison gas, and perfectly legal. The historic ban on poison gas is a valuable deterrent, but it has survived some previous breaches, and preventing this one is not worth a war. Especially if it is, from the point of view of the potential interveners, an unwinnable war. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are pub-

Another French-Canadian disconnect There have been and, I’m sure, there will continue to be many controversial issues involving Quebec and the rest of Canada. However, this is not the issue that I am writing about here. My issues seem to centre around Mr.Fuddle-duddle Jr. if you will, Justin Trudeau. A while ago, on national television, he was asked a question regarding Quebec and the part that Quebec plays in Canada. He was asked about sovereignty issues. He was asked about multiculturalism and he was asked about bilingualism. In all of these areas he seemed somewhat evasive and somewhat side-stepping except for one. That one issue was, from my standpoint, an issue that was a statement that probably showed the level of intelligence and reasoning of a four or five-year-old child.

Geoengineering energy potential

The decisions are being made now that may risk inducing unknown disasters! For example, humans used magnets to navigate the planet for almost a thousand years, without knowing the magnetic fields prevented solar radiation from reaching the planet. Geoengineering is introducing en masse, a foreign substance intended to reflect sunlight away from the planet, this may induce unforeseen interactions with other as yet unknown invisible control mechanisms! An informed decision is required by all. I have put forward a potential energy source for consideration and debate, to assist in ensuring the decision made is an informed one!

Scrap stealth snowmobile plan

After reading an article regarding the spending of over a half million dollars for a stealth snowmobile, I was left scratching my head. As a retired Naval Petty Officer, I mulled this around for about an hour, and I still could not believe what I had read. Any of you out there who have read my letters know how much I detest government waste, and as far as I can tell, this is the straw that

Many four or five-year-olds will answer a question with, “because,” or, “somebody (mom, dad, sister etc.) said so.” Trudeau was asked a question regarding Quebecers and their influence on multiculturalism in Canada. The question was based on social contribution to the Canadian way of life; socialization; cultural contribution and such. The main thrust of the question had to do with a comparison of Quebecers to the balance of Canadians. Trudeau answered the question with a blanket statement by saying (with a straight face and conviction) that, “Quebecers are better than the rest of Canadians!” He made it sound as simple as that. When the moderator, Tom Clarke asked him as to why he thought this and what his basis for arriving at this conclusion was, again Trudeau smugly stated,

broke the camel’s back. $600,000 on a snowmobile? I cannot believe that such supposed brilliant minds came up with such a cockamamie idea. What in blue blazes could this possibly be used for? To counter the ever present threat of secret evil Inuit terrorist cells in Frobisher Bay? I hope there is an active duty general out there who reads this and can enlighten me, because, for the life of me, I cannot come up with one single possible use for such an idiotic invention. Deplorable, absolutely deplorable. Mark Billesberger Penticton

Litke for mayor

With civic elections imminent in Penticton it is most important that the citizens select a competent experiences, wise leader to guide the city over the years ahead. Having had social and recreational association with Garry Litke on a number of occasions, both before and since he has been on city council I have been impressed by his sincerity, his ability to hear you out, his calmness and his firm grasp of finance and economics. He is keenly aware that about one-third of the citizens in Penticton are on fixed incomes so he must be guided by the old Roman maxim Festina lente (make haste slowly). Revenue must be spent carefully and cautiously avoiding interest payments wherever possible.

”It’s because they are Quebecers.” Wow! Isn’t this a profound, wisdom-based, carefully thought out statement? Aren’t you glad that he has been chosen by the Liberals as their up and coming leader who hopes to follow in daddy’s foot-steps and ascend to the Prime Ministerial throne of Canada? It conjures up the statement of the Allstate Insurance Company, “You’re in good hands will Allstate.” He would have us believe that he has the skills, knowledge and ability to lead Canada into the future. Kind of a scary thought, don’t you think? In the last while, Trudeau seems to have shot himself in the foot several times over things he has said or things he has done. Some of these that come to mind other than the aforementioned are: being paid major sums for speaking at charitable functions; his

Still, Garry has seen the South Okanagan Events Centre built, the upgrading of the swimming pool, the sports centre and the soccer grounds that are in continuous use, tennis courts have been resurfaced and upgrades at Skaha Lake and Powell streets. Citizens should be aware that Vasek Pospisil the No. 10 in the world had his first introduction to tennis at the Penticton Tennis Club and the range of age of the members stretches from five to 94 and membership is open to everyone. These accomplishments and many others have occurred during Garry Litke’s time on the council. I think he is worthy of your support. Vince Rabbitte Penticton

Nothing wrong with horsepower

(re: Carriage rides a nuisance, Letters, Western News, Aug. 2) I must comment on Ms. van den Berg’s letter. Where has she been all her life? Where does she think the word horsepower came from? Before that big hunk of metal with four wheels and engine and other parts came along animals, including horses, were used for transport. Horses are used all over the world for this purpose. When I was a little girl our milkman delivered milk in a horsedrawn wagon, same as our garbage men.

waffling attitude towards marijuana and the latest issue of Quebec’s proposed banning of religion based attire. With marijuana, he was in concert with the Conservative stand and the status quo law for some time. On a recent Western speaking tour, he did a complete 180 degree turnaround on this subject by advocating that it is time for change and that pot use should be legal or decriminalized. On the issue of the proposed ban of religious attire in Quebec, he agreed to disagree with the provincial premier. Hmm, I wonder what he thinks about his statement, “Because they are Quebecers now?” Look out folks, happening in a political arena near you, Fuddle-duddle rides again!

Remember wagon wheels? I guess not by your discriminating comments. Oh, and what about the carriages and buggies that people used to get around in? Do you feel misinformed yet? If so, she should go to the library, ask for assistance, then educate yourself.

Time to disband Senate

I say hurrah. Finally an announcement from the NDP to abolish the Senate. Personally, some time ago, prior to our last federal election, I inquired what is the country going to do about the Senate? Can the people of Canada expect a current job description of exactly what the current Senate does for the extreme funds we pay them? I for one am very disappointed on the several Senators who have spent tax payer funds for their own use. We have so many folks that are jobless and could use their jobs back with these funds, for heaven’s sake I beg this government to properly assist all those folk they have put out of work to use some of these funds to reinstate positions they have closed and give our needy folk their jobs back. I am prepared to start a petition here in Penticton to assist the NDP and all other Canadians who can see that the Senate is no longer a necessary part of our Canadian politics.

Council candidates share their stories Western News Staff

Kevin Andrews For Kevin Andrews, building a community starts at home. “I don’t work to instigate change for me, but for those around me, and that type of thinking starts at home,” said the former school board trustee who is running for a seat on city council. “I strongly believe that change starts at home,” said Andrews. “No matter who you are, what position you are in a family or otherwise, if you are going to belong to a community then you should step up to the plate and try to make a positive difference.” Andrews’ home is a busy one, with his wife and four children, all boys: three are attending university and the youngest is finishing high school. “I have lived in the Okanagan area for over 30 years and believe it is one of the best places to live and retire in Canada,” said Andrews. “Both of my parents live here and are semi-retired after operating a business at the Penticton airport for many years.” Andrews lays claim to a diverse background, with education in tourism, human resource management and early childhood education and special needs teaching. He is currently working as co-ordinator of volunteer services at Kelowna General Hospital. “I train people, we organize and schedule as many as 60 people a day, seven days a week throughout the year to provide services within the hospital at different levels of care,” said Andrews, explaining that can be anything from greeting and giving directions to helping with filing. “I go to work at a hospital where our job is to help others, so really is there any better feeling you can have?” said Andrews. “All we strive to accomplish should be to help everyone everywhere. By developing a community that follows that philosophy, we can work to influence other communities to be better and to provide a better and more complete way of life.”

Patrick Buchanan According to Patrick Buchanan, there is no better place to live than Penticton, and he wants to make sure it stays that way. “I just want to see Penticton flourish,” he said. “We have to get out of the 1950s.” Buchanan, husband to Susan and father to daughter Matraya and son Jesse, arrived in Penticton in 1979 from Phoenix, Ariz. Although Buchanan, a locksmith, has had job offers on the Lower Mainland, he said there is one very important thing keeping him in Penticton. “The lifestyle,” said Buchanan. “The fishing out here is unbelievable, skiing with six hills within a couple of hours, hiking, mountain biking. “There’s nowhere else in the world that I think offers what we have here.”

Community is also important, Buchanan said, and giving back to a community he loves is something he expects of himself. “I believe in serving my community,” he said. In addition to coaching soccer, Buchanan also spent nine years as an auxiliary RCMP officer. Taking part in municipal politics was only a matter of time, said Buchanan, as it is something he has been thinking about for 10 years, borne of talks around the kitchen table with family, friends and acquaintances who urged him to seek office. Although the decision to run in the byelection was relatively easy, Buchanan first made sure to consult with his family, coworkers and his employer at Penticton Lock and Key. “I wanted to make sure everyone was OK with the time I was going to be committing to it,” he said. Nonethless, Buchanan said even though he will have to give up some activities, his family always come first. When asked if there was anything scary about the prospect of being elected, Buchanan smiled. “It actually happening,” he said with a chuckle. “Then living up to expectations. “I always have high expectations of myself, I need to succeed with what I do. “I’m not going to please everybody, I’ve learned that with all of the volunteer work that I’ve done.” Thus far, Buchanan looks at his first brush with municipal politics with a positive eye, saying it has been a good experience and all of the feedback he has received has been positive. After he wins the byelection, Buchanan has one immediate task in mind. “I’m going to call all of these people and say, ‘OK, here we are, we’re doing this together,’” he said. “The responsibility for Penticton lies within the people of Penticton, not just council. “There is room for Penticton to grow, we just have to let it happen,” said Buchanan. “But people in Penticton have to come forward and say, ‘This is what we need to do.’”

Lynn Kelsey Lynn Kelsey makes no secret that she’s a Christian, but said she isn’t mixing religion with politics as she runs for a council seat in the Sept. 7 municipal by election. “It’s very important in my life and it is very important to be who you are. How I guide myself comes from my Christian beliefs and that’s all about integrity and being who I am,” said Kelsey. “What I am saying is I am coming from an ethical position that guides who I am and the decisions I make, not only for my life, but my decisions in general: about how I treat people. I am a caring person, I am an advocate, I treat others how I want to be treated.” Advocacy is a long-time calling for

Kelsey, who currently works with the South Okanagan Women in Need Society as women’s support worker at their shelter. She’s also a master trainer for the Canadian Diabetes Association. “I do a lot of diabetes education, both in the public and health care,” said Kelsey. “I have also done a lot of work with First Nations up in Prince George, I was there for 2.5 years as the community health rep. I have a very close connection.” The Penticton community is also very important to Kelsey. Her mother, her son and her daughter, who graduated from Pen High, also live in the community. “I originally came for family and I have stayed because I love this vibrant community. I love all the different festivals we have, I love the fact we have things to do in the summer and things to do in the winter,” said Kelsey. “I like the size of the city as well. I was raised at the coast but I prefer the size of this city, because you can get the chance to form relationships and get to know people.” Kelsey is also a classically trained pianist, and said she plays 17 other instruments and sings. “I sing and I teach piano and voice. And occasionally you can find me out on my lake with my partner fishing,” said Kelsey. “I love classics, jazz, obviously gospel, I play on the worship team at my church and I like to rock it. We don’t do hymns hymn-style when I play.”

Andre Martin Known for his commitment to the community through volunteer work, Andre Martin is extending that duty by running in the council byelection. “I had a lot of people urge me to do it. I have been on a number of boards in Penticton and it is an opportunity to sit on the other side of the fence and make some decisions that will be better for the boards and the community at large,” said Martin. After a 22-year career with the Penticton Herald, which he retired as general manager, Martin said now that he is self-employed as the owner of a delivery business and chair of Tec Canada, he can set his own schedule. This would allow him the freedom to sit on city council. Martin, who has three sons, is taking his first run at politics but believes his background bodes well for the steep learning curve most rookie councillors face. “Certainly the number of groups I am involved with I get a feel for what the community needs and is looking for. Sitting around a board table is probably no different than sitting around a council table,” he said. “You listen to everyone’s issues, ideas and you form an opinion on the information you get. “When you make a decision you live with that decision and try your best to make sure it succeeds.” Martin is the president of the Penticton and

Wine Country Chamber of Commerce (on leave until the end of the election), member of the Penticton Triathlon Race Society, sits on the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan (on leave during election), chair of the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame, past-member of the Downtown Penticton Association and a member of Penticton’s Downtown Revitalization Committee. “If it is something you want to do and you care about, you find the time to make it work,” said Martin of how he fits it all in. “I believe it makes a better community and is a good way to give back. I have built a lot of relationships in this community and it is a good way to give back and do good things.”

Katie Robinson Look closely at former city councillor Katie Robinson’s campaign signs and you’ll notice a subtle jab at two of the men she faced off against in the 2011 municipal election. Robinson’s signs note she’s proud to live in Penticton, something the other 2011 mayoral hopefuls Dan Ashton of Trout Creek and Julius Bloomfield of Naramata were unable to claim. “I’ve always chosen when I was on council to live within city limits, because I’m paying taxes here,” said Robinson. “So the decisions I make on council affect me as well as my neighbours and everybody who lives here in the city.” The 57-year-old retired financial advisor finished third in the 2011 mayoralty race, and is now one of five people vying for a single seat at the council table in the Sept. 7 byelection. She opted not to seek the mayoralty this time out, since the learning curve would be steep for a shortened term. Robinson, a married mother of two adult children, served three terms as a councillor before stepping down ahead of the 1999 election. Four years ago, she began working at an Okanagan Falls winery, and more recently became concerned about Penticton’s finances. Alarm bells first went off when dozens of city workers were let go following the 2010 core services review. “How did we end up with that much staff in the first place?” Robinson said. City administrators, she continued, “fired a bunch of employees to meet their bottom line, and it seems to me a little better planning could have avoided a lot of pain and suffering for a lot of people.” Besides helping to reorganize the city’s finances, Robinson also wants to help continue building off-season tourist activities, such as Fest-of-Ale and the Okanagan Spring Wine Festival, which she helped get off the ground. “I considered it a privilege working for the citizens of Penticton, and I don’t have any conflicts of interest or business concerns,” Robinson said. “I’m just there for the betterment of our city.”

$100 million – every week! BRITISH COLUMBIA’S UNION ADVANTAGE There were 592,200 union members working in British Columbia in 2012. That’s 31% of all employees. Their weekly payroll of over $575 million accounted for 36% of the total for the entire province. On average, unionized workers earned $5.12/hour more than non-union employees. All together, that union advantage translated into $100 million more every week paid into local economies to support local businesses and community services. When unions stand up for fairness, we all win.

Terry Fox Run needs organizer SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 67 (OKANAGAN SKAHA)

Mark Brett

Western News Staff

Terry Fox is remembered as a rare individual who always looked to accomplish the impossible. Although he was unable to complete his journey physically, what Fox did accomplish was to leave an international legacy that not only gave people that hope, but in many cases since then, a cure. For Bill Palmer, taking on the task of organizing Penticton’s annual Terry Fox Run fundraiser was in memory of another young man who died of cancer, his son Doug. Diagnosed with multiple myeloma at age 26, Doug died five years later in September 2005. Watching his son and others around him, including children, undergo treatment, changed the father’s outlook on life and was what eventually motivated him to become an organizer. “I thought this would be my chance to give back. I wanted to help with whatever could be done so maybe it will help someone else in the future that went through what Doug went through,” said Palmer. “Since the Terry Fox Foundation is all about research I thought this would be a good opportunity to do that.” Now, after the last two years, Palmer has decided to hand over the reigns to someone else. He and the foundation are hoping to find a successor prior to this year’s 33rd Terry Fox Run on Sept. 15. Having someone in place by then would allow the new person to get first-hand knowledge of what is involved in the job. “What we’re looking for is someone who likes working with people and that has the ideals that Terry set out,” said Palmer. “Someone to raise money for cancer research in a way that the whole community can get involved with and keep it motivated.” The organizer’s duties include scheduling meetings, route de-

The years have not lessened the heart break of losing their grandfather to cancer, but two young sisters have found a way to ease their pain and help others at the same time. Since Gordie Hall Sr. passed away in 2009, grand daughters Brooke, 10, and Kierra, 7, have twice donated a portion of their, long blonde locks to the Canadian Cancer Society. According to their mother Tanya Hall, the girls initially decided to cut their hair on the first anniversary of her father’s passing. “They were very close to him and they called him Papa,” said Tanya. “He actually helped raise them. I’m a single

very big part of their lives. “Even to this day it is very tough for them but I think this (donating) helps at least a little bit.” Hall was 67 when he died. When asked why she decided to cut her hair, Kierra, replied, “I would not want to be bald so I wanted to help someone who is. I want to give it to some little girl or young lady who has cancer.” Sister Brooke added, “We started to cut our hair because my Auntie Laureen (Youssefi (Hall) was going to do it and we thought that it was a really neat idea. I wanted to give my hair to someone who needs it more than we do.” According to mom, the girls’ selflessness is not something new, nor is it out of character. “Since kindergarten, my girls have picked a charity to donate to and for their birthdays they

asked their friends to donate money for their charity,” said Tanya. “They have chosen the SPCA, Penticton hospital and the food bank. “I am so proud of them. They both have very big hearts and they are always thinking of others before themselves.” She used to love watching the interaction between her father and daughters, whether it was on driving trips in search of water slides or boating adventures. “Even the different types of food, they would say, ‘I want it Papa’s way or I want Papa’s salad dressing,’” said Tanya whose father held each of the girls just seconds after they were born. “He is still very much a part of their lives.” The sisters also remember their Papa as a very special person. “We would go

camping, he would make lunches for us, such as cheese sandwiches and chicken teriyaki noodles. “All his friends would teach us very important things like how to eat french fries and ketchup without getting too messy,” said Brooke. “Our Papa loved our long hair. “When we would have it braided he would grab it and pretend it was the reins to a horse and say, ‘giddy up.’” Kierra simply said: “He was my best friend. We would call each other ‘Best Buds.’ We love him very much and miss him in every day.” Both girls agreed giving of themselves by donating some hair every few years is a very small way to remember a person who meant so much to them, but an important way of helping someone else very special.

Toe-tapping, boogiewoogie music takes over Penticton Sept. 6 to 8 for what is billed as the best jazz party in the Pacific Northwest. “It is, it absolutely is,” said Pentastic Hot Jazz Festival president Michael Campbell. “We offer a mix of jazz styles from Big Band, Zydeco, swing, traditional Dixieland and gospel. We have something for every taste and we credited that with our longevity.” For their 17th year, the Pentastic Hot Jazz Festival has invited a strong lineup of bands that reflects that diversity, including Draga’s Dragons, Le Dixieband from Montréal, Tom Rigney & Flambeau, Tom Hook & The Terrier Brothers, Black Swan Jazz Band, Grand Dominion Jazz Band, Okanagan band Aged to Perfection, The Original Wildcat Jass Band, Gator Beat and local musicians the Offramp Jazz Sextet. “We are really excited to have Le Dixieband come back to us after a seven year absence and we are also really looking forward to Grand Dominion Jazz Band who are new to us this year and are a great band,” said Campbell. “For a three-day pass at the price level we have set, you cannot get anything better than this.” Several venues will transform into jazz concert halls for the three day event. The Elks

Hall becomes the Cotton Club, the trade and convention centre will be known as Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, the S.S. Sicamous becomes the Speakeasy and events will also be held at the Shatford Centre. On Sept. 6, from 1:50 to 3 p.m., a special outreach concert takes place at the Shatford Centre featuring Gator Beat. On Sept. 8 a free gospel service is hosted by the Black Swan Jazz Band at the trade and convention centre French Quarter, starting at 9 a.m. “These are two fabulous bands and it is free to all, but we are accepting donations at both of these events. The money will go towards the high school music program,” said Campbell. Those looking to get into the swing of things, can also learn a step or two at the free dance lessons for ticket holders on Sept. 7 at the Shatford Centre. Returning are instructors from Victoria’s Red Hot Swing Club. Also on Saturday, at the S.S. Sicamous Speakeasy, they will be throwing out the traditional theatre style seating for the 10:30 p.m. performance to change the atmosphere with the Riverboat Cabaret event. “We will set up the room in cabaret style and we have got great musicians playing including Lance Buller, Larry Holloway and a mixture of people from other bands,” said Campbell. As with any good

jazz music comes dancing and the Pentastic Jazz Festival made sure to keep with the New Orleans tradition of a Second Line Parade. “We will have that at

the beginning and end of the festival. The band will be on stage playing something like When The Saints Go Marching In and people will know it’s time to get up

and shake their booty,” said Campbell. Tickets are $55 for Friday, $70 for Saturday, $50 for Sunday or a three-day pass can be purchased for $105.

Daily and all event passes can be ordered at www.valleyfirsttix. com or purchased at the South Okanagan Events Centre box office, the Wine Info

Centre and at the Best Western. Free shuttles are offered at all the venues and between sponsoring hotel and motels to the venues.

Soundstage Productions is hosting auditions for their upcoming production of the musical Les Misérables. Males and females over the age of 15 are invited to the audition on Sept. 8 at the Penticton Lakeside Resort ballroom. Auditions will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis. “Don’t be shy,” said Lynne Leydier, director of Soundstage Produc-

Free Food! Free Drink!

tions. “Don’t be afraid to audition, I try to make it as painless as possible for those that haven’t auditioned for anything before. I hear so often from people saying they would love to be in the show and it looks like fun but they don’t sing and a lot of the times the production isn’t even about that.” Organizers suggest to bring your favourite song, O Canada! or a song from the show. “We are really hoping to attract some young guys. We see

these guys that sing in bands, or play folk music at the coffee shop and they don’t think of themselves to be part of this. There are a few leads in this production, but really it is an ensemble show and the music is fabulous. There also isn’t a lot of dancing so that aspect shouldn’t scare people away,” said Leydier. Soundstage Productions is looking for a cast of about 30 to be in the Les Misérables production that will take place at the Penticton

Lakeside Jan. 22 to 25. Leydier said anyone interested in helping behind the scenes or has questions about the auditions are encouraged

to contact her. For more information Leydier can be reached at 250-493-9787, 250490-6091 or by email at lleydier@shaw.ca.

Many Hats strips down for tender comedy Skin Flick Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Many Hats Theatre Company is delving into a tender and affectionate comedy poking fun at the adult film industry. Skin Flick, the fourth production of the season for the theatre company, is a Norm Foster comedy about five innocent people caught in the headlights of making an adult film. For obvious reasons, the production comes with a warning that it contains adult lan-

guage and themes. “There isn’t anything dirty in it and that is the No. 1 thing I want to emphasize. Yes, they talk about you know what, but you don’t see anything and nobody takes their clothes off,” clarified director Ed Schneider. “There is a couple of words in the beginning that might cause some people to get gastric indigestion but there is nothing really dirty about it. It is loads of fun.” Rollie (Vance Pot-

ter) and Daphne (Kathy Hemmingsen) are down on their luck, as is Rollie’s best bud Alex (Rudy Nemecheck), a TV news cameraman now unemployed through a set of circumstances so bizarre that only Canada’s leading playwright could have created them. The

solution to their no-cash dilemma is to produce a skin flick. Schneider said the laughs lie in the shock and discomfort of the characters as they venture into unchartered waters. He adds the way the playwright tells the tale through Rollie’s omniscient narration

only adds to the comedy. Rollie is a charming, jolly, guy-next-door who not only amends the script on the fly but also peppers his monologues with asides about the art of writing and the playwright himself. “He admits to being the playwright because he tinkers with the script. When someone uses a bad word he stops the action and apologizes and says from then on no one can say a bad word and they choke on them which is really fun-

ny,” said Schneider. It is through an odd set of circumstances that the main characters in Skin Flick come across a pair that they then cast for their adult film. Jill (Shannon French) was sent to the wrong house to deliver balloons and Byron (Rob McCaffery) is Alex’s booky who gets roped in. “I have directed several of Norm Foster’s plays and this is now my favourite, it is so funny. Every line in the play is a joke or setting someone else up for a laugh-line. It is just hilarious,” said Schneider. “We have an unbelievably talented crew that are doing a bang-up job on it and are having tons of fun.” Potter is from Okanagan Falls and has been in other productions, but it will be the first time he is with Many Hats. Hemmingsen is working on her fourth Many Hats show and has done Shakespeare and a few other shows. Nemecheck, McCaffery and French are all Many Hats regulars as well. “Norm Foster throws

little things into the script and you can’t figure out why until later and all of sudden you realize that is why when they come back to it and there is the joke. It’s always these wonderful loose ends that gets tied up. This isn’t Shakespeare. It is just fun,” said Schneider. Reserved seat tickets are $22 for adults and $19 for students and seniors. They are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre, or can be reserved by phone at 250-276-2170. A reception will be held on the opening night (Sept. 5) in the adjoining Opus Bistro Café which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew. “I think this will be a big hit and tickets will sell out fast, so make sure you buy early or reserve them before it is too late,” said Schneider. Skin Flick runs from Sept. 5 to Sept. 28 on the Cannery Stage in the Cannery Trade Centre. Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

Tanzania changes kids lives Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Colton Van Kamp and annie plant travelled to tanzania in July on a humnitarian trip with other local students who helped out at an orphanage.

Submitted

Seeing how much some people can do with so little has helped another bunch of local teenagers appreciate all that they have here at home. The group of 25 students and chaperones from Penticton and Summerland high schools had their eyes opened last month on a threeweek humanitarian trip to Tanzania. While there, the visitors helped with construction of a new dormitory at an orphanage in the Arusha region. Annie Plant, 15, was amazed at how little it took to keep the kids who live there content. “They had a little toy they would share and it was made out of a pop can, and they thought it was the coolest thing,” said Plant, who will beVenetian Vertical Wood Faux Wood Pleated Cellular Drapery Roller Shades Roman Shades Panel Tracks Shutters 3M Window Films Motorization

gin Grade 11 next week at Penticton Secondary School. Colton Van Kamp, 15 and heading into Grade 11 at Princess Margaret Secondary School, was happy to see the children seemed at peace in their lives. “They were really, really, really underprivileged and they had nothing, but they were

the happiest kids in the world,” Van Kamp said. “I don’t think they know what we have, so they have nothing to complain about, so they make due.” Plant and Van Kamp collected $1,600 to buy food for the kids and school supplies for the orphanage prior to their departure. The Okanagan crew helped finish

the walls and floor of a dormitory building that was started by another local group of students that visited Tanzania in the spring. Plant is returning to Africa in September with her family to work with Flying Doctors of Kenya. While there, the Plants will also be involved with a nonprofit called Sports for Change, which helps

cover school expenses for orphans and lowincome kids by organizing sporting events. The family is seeking donations of gently used running shoes, jackets, hiking boots, backpacks and books for kids between the ages of 12 and 17. Drop donations off at Peach City Runners, Hooked on Books and the Adidas Sportsplex.

Startup making buzz with fruit soda Lepitre. “We want to keep it as natural as humanly possible. I think that is going to be the struggle for us when we get into bottling, is trying to find a way to keep it all natural in bottles.” For this year, though, the only place you are going to be able to taste one of their fresh fruit mixtures is at places like the Penticton Farmers’ Market and other events that Collen and Lepitre attend in person. “It’s nice to go to Peachfest and be one of the only vendors selling peach products,” said Collen. “We got lots of compliments on that.” The business plan has them buying a small bottling unit next year to begin experiments, then moving to wider distribution in their third year. The pair say they have learned a lot very quickly, starting with setting up their workspace in the basement of Collen’s grandmother’s house. “This was an unfinished basement and we built it in seven days in June,” said Collen. “By the time we got all our permits and health inspections passed, we weren’t selling until the end of July, so we have only been doing this a month and a half, sales-wise.” Not in their business plan, however, was a demand for their product at private events, like bridal showers and anniversaries. “We’ve had some interest from brides, coming up and asking ‘Can we get a custom soda for our wedding?’” said Lepitre. There are a few farmers’ markets and other events left, but the season is gradually drawing to a close. Keep an eye out for JAB Soda in coming weeks and for their return next May.

Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

When Jared Collen and Brad Lepitre first met as children, it’s unlikely they ever gave any thought to what they would be doing 15 years later. These days, Collen and Lepitre are still playing together in the basement, though now, as the co-owners of the startup JAB Soda, there is a more serious goal in sight. “We’ve been best friends for 15 to 16 years,” said Lepitre as Collen explains they met in Grade 5 and have been friends ever since. “The response has been phenomenal. People are so excited about the fact that it’s local, we do pretty exciting flavours,” said Lepitre. “I think of people are sick of the corn syrup stuff with artificial flavours. It’s local, it’s fresh, there are no preservatives,” said Collen. “There is no additives, there is no fake colours. It’s fruit and a little bit of cane sugar. When people ask for ingredients, they can actually understand what’s in it.” Lepitre, with a chef’s degree in hand, and Collen, with a business degree, had been talking about getting in on the food truck craze, maybe selling some fresh fruit sodas along with food. “He (Collen) phoned me back two days later and said, ‘Forget the food truck, let’s start a soda company,’” said Lepitre. Collen wanted to make use of the raw materials on the family orchard and throughout the area. “We have access to so much fresh fruit around here, so we figured we might as well

make use of it,” said Collen, adding that tons of fruit gets thrown out every year for not making commercial grade. That fruit, cherries, peaches and apples in season, make the base of their product, but they don’t stop there and use other local products to make their unique flavours, which they admit, change from week to week: cucumbermint-lime; cherry-ginger-lime; spiced peach

and pineapple-peach-vanilla bean, just to name a few of their experiments. Everything they use is a local and natural as possible: local cucumbers; fresh-squeezed lime and vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract. “The goal of this was to not get to the point where we wanted to make money more than we wanted to make a better product,” said

PENTICTON VEES GOALIE Hunter Miska grabs the puck in the crease as Trail Smoke Eaters forward Bryce Knapp braces for the collision during exhibition B.C. Hockey League action at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton Wednesday. The Vees scored three unanswered goals to edge the visitors 3-1. The team will play in Salmon Arm tonight and return to Penticton Saturday for a final exhibition game against Salmon Arm. Mark Brett/Western News

Vees rookie goalie finding groove Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Hunter Miska’s playing style might cause some Penticton Vees fans to think of a couple NHL goalies. Miska, a Stacy, Minn., native said he plays similar to Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick and Minnesota Wild net minder Niklas Bäckstrӧm. After a good training camp, Miska has been solid in exhibition play, turning aside 37 of 38 shots. He stopped 22 in a 3-1 win against the Trail Smoke Eaters Wednes-

day night in the South Okanagan Events Centre. “I feel like I’ve been on my game. Really focused,” said Miska. “Just trying to compete best I can.” During exhibition, Miska’s intention is to show the coaching staff he’s competitive and determined to win every time. The 18-year-old is competing for ice time with Olivier Mantha, who he has already built a strong friendship with. “I like him. He’s an awesome kid. We’re living together

now,” said Miska. “When we get on the ice, we’re different guys. Working against each other. Trying to fight for the position.” While Miska compares his style to Quick and Bäckstrӧm, Josh Harding, the other Wild goalie, is his favourite. “He is one of my inspirational guys,” said Miska. “He started playing goal at 14, same as me. I kind of just try to follow his footsteps. I play like him a little bit too.” Miska began playing hockey

at age four and mostly played forward until four years ago. “Freshman year of high school I decided to play goal. I just got sick of forward,” said Miska.

Although we didn’t have the quantity, we certainly had the quality.” Hosting all clubs in the Okanagan, the PYC held three of four races on Saturday. One race was cancelled due to a time limit. Southerly winds, up to 20 to 30 knots made for great races. On Sunday, they had three races. Enzmann said sailors love northerly winds, but southerly winds add more excitement. “What happens is when you start, instead of racing to Summerland turning around and coming to Penticton, you end up racing to a mark we have in front of the Penticton Lakeside Casino and Resort,” he explained.

“From there you are basically sailing downwind towards Summerland.” The further sail boats get down the lake, the waves get much bigger and the velocity of the wind typically increases. “Southerlies are generally sporadic and puffy,” said Enzmann, adding that it makes for a nasty trip back but the sailors still enjoy it. Summerland’s Lyle Thiede was the overall winner sailing in Minimus, a 25-foot sail boat. Thiede said it was as good as it gets since he won. “Pretty exhilarating racing,” said Thiede. “We usually don’t get those strong winds. Nice to have it during a regatta.” Thiede didn’t expect to win during the weekend as he usually places between second and fourth. “I just went out to have a good time,” he said. Normally held on a different date, Enzmann said they wanted to have it tie in with the inaugural Challenge Penticton. “We thought it’s a good visual to have the boats out on the water sailing,” he said.

Bullrider has promising future

at 200 Rosetown Avenue

Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Shaun Greenhough loves the thrill of bullriding. He loves everything about the sport. That admiration for it has the 17-year-old dreaming of a professional career. The Penticton/Princeton resident, who recently competed in the Summerland Pro Bullriding Stampede, wants to travel the world chasing the paydays that come with winning. Before he can reach that level, Greenhough needs to learn the ropes of staying on a bull. In a career that is just six months old, he’s getting help from someone who has been through it. Trevor Thompson won the 1985 National High School finals bullridingc championship is also a 1985 All-American TeamBull Riding/Bareback. Thompson, who returned to the sport because of Greenhough, said the newcomer is progressing pretty good. “He’s going to be good. He’s a very determined young man,” said Thompson, 46, who met Greenhough after beginning a relationship with his mother. “One of the better ones I’ve seen. There is a learning curve that you have to put out there for him. You give him something to work on and he picks it up real quick.” Greenhough has enjoyed learning from Thompson. As the summer continued, Greenhough started seeing

improvements. Among the risks of riding bulls is getting hurt. Greenhough broke his collarbone, which affected his riding arm, but still competed. “Once you get on the bull you don’t really feel anything,” said Greenhough, whose interest in the sport started by watching it on TV. “It’s just a bunch of adrenaline pumping through you. When you get off, you really feel it.” Thompson, who quit bull riding at 22, goes to rodeos with Greenhough and gives him advice in the chute. They have also utilized video so he can learn from his mistakes. “Last weekend he rode in Smithers … I

was able to go through the video (Greenhough’s cousin shot) with him,” said Thompson. “There were a few mistakes he did. It’s awesome with that kind of technology. I wish I had had that.” Thompson said riders need strength in this sport and Greenhough has that because he works out religiously. Thompson said Greenhough needs to work on his focus, which will be put to the test in Barriere this weekend as the community hosts the B.C. Rodeo Association’s final stop before finals in Quesnel. The top 10 qualify to go to Quesnel. Greenhough currently sits in eighth.

Remember When I come to the end of my journey And I travel my last weary mile Forget if you can that I ever frowned And remember only my smile Forget unkind words I have spoken Remember some good I have done Forget that I ever had heartache And remember I’ve had lots of fun Remember I’ve fought some hard battles And won ere the close of the day Then forget to grieve for my going I would not have you sad for a day -anonymous
