Setting fire to history

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

I

n the late 1920s, some of Westbank’s approximately 250 registered voters decided the community was in need of a central meeting place to host various public events. The idea was popular and a fundraising dance held in Kelowna collected $1,360 in donations, surpassing organizers’ $1,000 goal. Community members worked together in 1929 and 1930 to construct the building before an official grand

opening took place April 30, 1930. The hall, which fronted Main Street at the time, was run by the Community Club and was well used by citizens for a wide range of events in the years that followed. But it began to show its age in the 1970s and was in desperate need of renovations. After debating whether or not to completely knock the building down, the Westbank Lions Club realized the building had been sturdily built; therefore, they decided to remodel the facility rather than completely start from scratch. In 1980 they jacked up the hall, moved it back

about 100 feet to its current location to allow for parking and began renovations, which were completed in 1982. For 83 years the building has seen laughter at dances, smiles at weddings and tears at funerals. So it was understandable to see members of the public showing their emotions Sunday morning as flames threatened their community’s meeting place. And for most, those emotions only grew as the week went on and investigators revealed that the fire was started on purpose. See story page A3

Torched memories for Westbank landmark

from A1

Residents could still be seen Thursday morning stopping to stare at the burned Westbank Lions Community Centre. Some of them point, one shakes her head. Gordon Ficke, president of both the Westbank Museum and the Historic Westbank Association, says last Sunday morning’s news of the fire came as a shock to him. “It’s a landmark for Westbank—an important one,” says Ficke. He recalls memories from Westbank’s 110th birthday celebration, which took place at the community centre just three weeks ago. The all-day event ran alongside the Westbank Farmers’ Market and featured live entertainment, children’s activities, historic displays, as well as a dinner and a dance. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater describes the Lions’ Hall as “where our community meets.” “There are a lot of sad faces,” says Findlater, who cut his long weekend at his cabin short to deal with the aftermath of Sunday’s fire. “There are lots of memories for people… I’ve been there hundreds, if not thousands, of times.” The fact that investigators suspect arson was the cause of the blaze deepens the cut for residents, adds the mayor.

WADE PATERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

LOOKING over old photos of Westbank Lions Community Centre are (from left) Westbank Museum president Gordon Ficke, director Kathleen Reece and vice-president Poppy Angus. The photos were gathered as part of a museum project to map Westbank Centre with historic information on all the businesses and buildings. “Why would anyone do that deliberately?… something that would take away (a building) so highly valued by everyone in the community.” The second major impact, Findlater explains, is the loss of valuable community space, which is hard to come by in West Kelowna. With the exception of

two Saturdays, the Westbank Lions Community Centre was booked solid until Christmas. The District of West Kelowna has been working with the Westbank Lions Club to share information regarding potential available spaces to help place those who were scheduled to use the hall.

Findlater encourages those who are aware of space available at churches, camps, hotels, schools or other venues to contact the district. Along with all of the temporary users, Westbank Lions Community Centre was also home to several user groups. The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs’ Westside

Youth Centre, located in the building’s lower level, is closed for the immediate future. The centre provides drop-in recreation, meals and snacks, reconnect counselling and employment services. “A lot of the youth referred to it as their second home,” says Kristy Butterworth, direc-

tor of the Westside Youth Centre. “There are not a lot of places available on the Westside for youth to hang out at.” Butterworth says 40 to 50 kids utilize the facility every day during the winter months as the centre sees an average of 100 different individuals per month. “It’s everything from somebody who is there for recreation to people who may be homeless and are accessing their food and things like that. So it really varies.” Staff of the youth centre are providing meals in the United Church parking lot daily from 3 to 6 p.m. The district is currently working with youth centre staff to find a makeshift location for users of the centre. The Westside Storefront school has also been impacted by the fire. Students are being asked to report to Central School at 1825 Richter St. in Kelowna. The Canadian Red Cross health equipment loan depot, located within the community centre, has temporarily suspended its operations as well. Clients looking to pick up or drop off equipment can do so at other Red Cross locations, including 124 Adam Rd. in Kelowna from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday to Friday. The Westbank Farm-

Rick Hebner ers’ Market, which has taken place every Saturday in the Lions Hall parking lot throughout the summer, will be moved to the Westridge Mall parking lot for the final two Saturdays, Sept. 7 and 14. Rick Hebner, past president of the Westbank Lions Club, suggests Sunday’s fire was a “worst nightmare” come true for members of the Lions club. “It’s something we talked about often: What would happen if? Never in a million years (did we) think it would happen,” says Hebner. He notes it was not uncommon to see people loitering around the hall, regardless of the hour of day or night. “Because of where we are, we have a lot of people—both young kids and older people—who are sort of down on their luck, with no other place to hang out. “They’re out there smoking.

Memories from A3 a bunch of people out there in the early morning drinking who we called the RCMP on.” While the front of the hall appears to be in bad shape, firefighting efforts kept the blaze from significantly damaging the rear portion of the building. Whether or not the building will be repaired or completely rebuilt is yet to be determined. “We were through (Tuesday) with an insurance adjuster; at this point we have no clue because it’s still way too early. “It’s just a matter of waiting for word from the insurance company as to the way ahead and what’s going to happen.” According to Hebner, the building and its contents were insured for $3.5 million. One rumour that has emerged through various media reports throughout the week is that the Lions Club may consider partnering with the district as West Kelowna searches for a site for a new municipal hall. Hebner says those reports are unfounded. “There are no plans for the district to get in-

has not begun to budget for a future municipal hall and the item is not currently part of the district’s 10-year capital plan. ••• It’s difficult to fathom what may have been going through the mind of the individual who set fire to the historic Westbank Lions Community Centre. Perhaps he/she wasn’t aware of the history surrounding the building, or the countless memories the community has attached to it. “It may have been a thoughtless act by someone,” guesses the mayor. “The fire was reported around 8:30 in the morning. What that means to me is that it was probably light out. Maybe

somebody saw something that would be helpful— they should contact the RCMP.” Westbank Museum vice-president Poppy Angus and Ficke agree that, if possible, the building should be restored rather than demolished or completely rebuilt. “The community reaction has been devastation…it’s been such a focal point in the community for all of these years,” says Angus. Ficke adds: “It would be really nice if they made the decision that they can fix the building and restore it. “It’s where everything comes together.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Blood donor challenge feud revived It’s game on as the blood donor challenge has been thrown down by Kelowna to topple Prince George in this year’s Interior Drive For Live. Mayor Walter Gray said our city has not fared well against Prince George in recent years, and he wants to see local residents change that. “I am confident that Kelowna will do well this time,” said Gray at the official launch Thursday for the blood donor challenge at the Canadian Blood Services clinic in Kelowna. “Myself and other members of council (Maxine DeHart and Luke Stack) are here to do our part and we hope everyone else will do theirs.” Gayle Voyer, a partnership specialist for the Kelowna blood donor clinic, said underlying the competition between Keowna and Prince George is the importance of blood donation. “By giving blood now, you will be saving someone’s life in the future,”

BARRY GERDING/CAPITAL NEWS

GAYLE Voyer, with Canadian Blood Services, speaks

at the kick-off for the Interior Drive For Life blood donor challenge between Kelowna and Prince George. Voyer said. She said the campaign this year has been extended to Oct. 31 and will focus on the need for blood donors to support cancer patients. She said it takes five donors to meet the blood donation needs of one cancer patient. “There are several cancer fundraising campaigns and events going

on so we thought it would be a good fit,” Voyer said. She said the goal this year is for Kelowna to achieve 1,856 donations and attract 152 new donors. Barb Newman, a longtime blood donor and a Partner For Life champion at her employer’s office, talked about the importance of blood donations for her sister, who

was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer. “While she was in bed, every time she had a blood transfusion, it seemed to bring a glow back to her, that she could laugh and share moments with her family and friends during the final months of her life,” said Newman, who works for Mediative, a Kelowna digital marketing firm. Added Voyer: “When people ask, ‘What can I do?’, the answer is to give a blood donation. It doesn’t cost anything and it takes just an hour of your time.” The operating hours for the Kelowna blood donor clinic are Mondays, Tuesday and Thursdays, 11 a.m to 7 p.m.; and every other Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5p.m. The Saturday dates during the Interior Drive For Life will be Sept. 7, 21 and Oct. 5, 19.

ic is located at 1865 Dilworth Dr., across from Orchard Park Shopping Centre. For more information, call 1-888-2 DONATE or go to www.blood.ca.

to Muir Road, near the corner before the hill leading up to Black Mountain, will be repaved starting Monday. At the same time, a five-kilometre stretch of Highway 97, from Gordon Drive to Highway 33, will have minor repaving work done. According to the Ministry of Transportation, both roads will only be worked on during evening hours to mitigate the impact on traffic. During the day, the roads will be open to traffic but the road surface may be uneven due to the “mill and fill” process that will be used. Mill and fill is when the top layer of asphalt is removed and used to resurface the road. The Highway 33 work

is expected to be wrapped up by the end of October, while the Highway 97 work is only expected to take about a week to complete. “We’re so excited,” said Laurel D’Andrea of the Uptown Rutland Business Association about the repaving of Highway 33. “This has been in the works for a long time.” She said it’s just the start of several improvements to the Rutland area, including the creation by the city of a new transit exchange on Shepherd Road. The $3.2-million contract for the repaving work has been awarded to Lafarge’s Westlake Paving and Aggregates, said a ministry spokesman.

Politicians galore

West Kelowna is the place to be next week for B.C. politicians. In addition to a meeting of the Liberal cabinet in Premier Christy Clark’s home riding, B.C’s 21 Conservative MPs are also planning to hold a caucus meeting in the municipality next week. Each group will meet on separate days at the Cove Resort on the shore of Okanagan Lake. The MPs are set to meet on Sept. 12. As is tradition, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been invited to attend the B.C. MPs’ caucus meeting. But a spokesman for Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas—in whose riding West Kelowna is located—said it is not known if Harper will be there. He is currently in Russia at the annual G20 meeting. Clark said while her cabinet ministers are in West Kelowna, they will meet with both the Kelowna and West Kelowna mayors, as well as representatives of several local organizations such as the Westbank and District Chamber of Commerce. When Clark ran in the Westside-Kelowna byelection to replace former MLA Ben Stewart, she promised to hold cabinet meetings here if elected.

Feds kick in $150,000 to upgrade Okanagan Centre breakwater Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

One of the only safe harbours on the east side of Okanagan Lake will continue its retrofit with a $150,000 funding announcement from the federal government. Work will begin this fall to continue to improve the Okanagan Centre safe harbour, a breakwater designed for boaters to hunker down in rough waters on Okanagan Lake. It’s a much-needed safety measure on Okanagan Lake, the body of water responsible for more deaths of any other lake in B.C. each year, according to Robert Hobson, chairman of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan board. “The problem is, Okanagan Lake can blow up in a storm very quickly and there are very few places for safe harbour,” said Hobson. “This is really the only safe place from Oka-

Robert Hobson nagan Centre to Kelowna and the storms can come in very bad. There is increased demand for boat facilities (on the lake) and this money will start the process of finishing this safe harbour.” The breakwater, located in the Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park, was initially built in the 1970s using wooden materials. For 15 years, the regional district has been updating the structure with work on the south side already completed and the north side set for completion this year.

Coyote kills dog in West Kelowna Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

A miniature pinscher dog was killed in a coyote attack in his fenced yard Monday, warns Conservation Officer Ken Owens. He said the coyote hopped over a six-foot high fence to get at two pets in the downtown Westbank area. Although he says normally spring is the worst time for pets being killed by coyotes, because the parents are trying to feed their pups as well as themselves, he said there’s another spike in the fall as the parents teach those pups to hunt. There wasn’t anything the dog’s owners did wrong, he said, but he does warn residents to make sure pets are inside for the night and that no pet food or other attractants are left out where coyotes could get at it. Once the animals get hardwired to taking advantage of food people leave out, they can be dangerous, he warned. This summer, he said a coyote approached a toddler on the Two Eagles golf course, so people in the area should be wary. The Okanagan is great coyote habitat, but people

“The wooden breakwater has been in place since the 1970’s and needs a major overhaul,” continued Hobson. “This funding will help partially replace the most seriously deteriorating portions of the north breakwater.” While the safe harbour is located in Lake Country (along Okanagan Centre Road West), the breakwater is a benefit to all users of Okanagan Lake. And with boat traffic not decreasing any time soon, making the water safer for everyone is key, according to Lake Country mayor James Baker. “This is a benefit for

the whole region,” said Baker. “The harbour is full of boats in the summer. A lot of visitors come to this area and this will make the lake safer.” In making the funding announcement, Western Economic Diversification Minister Michelle Rempel said she is a frequent visitor to Lake Country and has enjoyed the region’s tourism opportunities. “Usually as a politician you want to cut a ribbon or open up a rink but key pieces of infrastructure like this one are so important to a community,” she said. “(This is) safe and modern infra-

structure that will benefit the residents of these communities for years to

come.” Funding came under the federal govern-

ment’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.

‘Seniors, families, disabled disadvantaged by circumstance not by choice

E-MAIL Newsroom edit@kelownacapnews.com

To the editor: Referring to the announcement that the Province of B.C. and the City of Kelowna are planning to develop 90 apartments on the Central Green site on Richter Street (former site of the Kelowna Secondary School), I note that this housing will be for those with low-to-modest incomes. In recent years, numerous affordable housing has been provided for those addicted to drugs and alcohol, women on the street, criminal backgrounds, prostitutes, unwed moms, etc. A large number of units were designated for seniors, families and those with a disability. Ironically, those are the groups that did not choose to be born that way, unlike those who chose their lifestyle. They are also less able to make their voices heard. Perhaps that is why they have been forgotten in so many areas of their lives. Most people are not aware that their monthly income is only $906.42—about the lowest possible income in the

Back to school, back to labour disputes A nother school year dawns in B.C., with the prospect of disruptive labour disputes. First up are 27,000 support staff, in a legal strike position. These are the teacher aides, custodians, bus drivers and crossing guards. Most are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, with a few Teamsters and other locals scattered around the 60 school districts. Public discussion about these disputes usually focuses on wage increases, which CUPE members in schools haven’t seen for four years. Their current deals expired more than a year ago, after they were subject to the same twoyear wage freeze imposed on the rest of

government. The B.C. government moved from the post-recession wage freeze to a system they call “co-operative gains,” where raisTom es must be financed by Fletcher savings in other areas of the operation. Only two provincial employee groups have yet to do this: school support staff and teachers. (Education Minister Peter Fassbender confirmed last week that teacher raises will be funded by extra transfers from the provincial treasury as they try to get a long-term deal. But that’s a topic for another day.) CUPE, the largest union in the country, has a sophisticated media campaign to generate public sympathy.

VICTORIA VIEWS

We are repeatedly reminded not only that the last raise was 2009, but that the “average” pay is a mere $24,000 a year. If that number is accurate, it reflects a large number of part-timers. Let’s look at a few provisions CUPE doesn’t talk about, on behalf of those self-employed taxpayers who have no paid holidays, no employer pension or benefits and no paid overtime, but are expected to help pay all of the above to government workers. The 60 contracts have many variations, but core elements are the same. In the Central Okanagan school district, the starting CUPE wage rate is $17.37 an hour. The top rate is $26.59, or $28.78 for workers who qualify for a “trades adjustment.” All contracts have rigid seniority and “bumping” clauses to ensure that new employees absorb any reductions

in working hours. From a taxpayer’s perspective, this leads to the maximum number of employees making the highest wages. Overtime in Central Okanagan is time and a half for the first two hours, and double time after that. Contracts also include the provision that unscheduled overtime is subject to a four-hour minimum. It’s amazing how often an unexpected hour of work can arise when it’s paid at quadruple time. The Surrey school district contract details how even “spare board” employees are to be enrolled in the municipal pension plan, a defined-benefit system most private-sector employees can only dream about. Then there are paid sick days. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation re-

▼ CELL NETWORK LOBBY

TELUS only wants what’s fair for you To the editor: I am writing in response to the recent coverage of the debate over Canada’s wireless sector and the concern for fair access to spectrum. As the general manager for TELUS throughout the interior of British Columbia, this is a topic that hits home for me. It should also hit home to anyone using a cell phone in the area. We have consistently stressed that our concerns were never about Verizon coming into Canada; rather, at stake is a very simple principle: Fairness. Is Ottawa about to give any large foreign entity a 2-for-1 advantage over domestic incumbents in the upcoming spectrum auction? This is not some academic policy question that affects only bureaucrats in Ottawa or

CEOs in office towers. It will directly affect people in communities just like our own. Let me offer just one example. Companies like TELUS invest billions to build cellphone networks in rural areas like our own. These networks are relied upon for everything from calls to friends and families to 911 emergency services. A foreign company will have made no such similar investments and is unlikely to even make future promises of such investments. TELUS makes no complaint about competing against big foreign companies. But we think it should be at least on a fair basis. Why give the biggest companies in the world, who have made no commitment to Canada or Canadian consumers, huge advantages? TELUS is headquartered in British Col-

umbia and we employ thousands here in the province and across the country. We spend billions to serve areas like this one. And we invest millions more back into the community with our support for local charities. Just like water or natural gas, spectrum is a scarce Canadian resource. If you support a fair approach—one that serves the people of this region directly, one that encourages competition without giving away this precious resource to huge foreign companies, then please communicate your support for a fair wireless policy to your local MP and decision-makers in Ottawa.

Acceptance of disadvantaged their prime need province. Their housing allowance (most are single) is $375 per month. There are no apartments or rooms at this rate, so they have to use their food money to make up the difference. It is true that they can retain some part-time earnings if they can find a job—and certainly the provincial government is encouraging them to do

so. Yet they, and I believe the City of Kelowna, have thus far not opened their doors to any positions they would be able to fill. This project is in the early stages, so it is not too late for those designing the units to ensure that a realistic number of apartments are designated for those who have not had a choice or a voice, and are forced to live in sub-standard, unhealthy, overpriced and sometimes un-

safe environments while their health suffers from inadequate nutrition and lost opportunities to participate in activities such as Special Olympics and other programs offered at rec centres, as these are costly activities for those on such a low income. Kelowna has a reputation for being a generous, giving and caring community that pulls together when there is a need. While I am not chal-

lenged, I feel compelled to be the voice of those most in need, as they can use all the support and encouragement we can offer them. Acceptance is one of their greatest needs. How many of your readers count one of them in their circle of friends? When is the last time you met with one for coffee, went to a movie or for dinner, included them at your barbecue or birthday party?

They are people too and spending time with one of them would go a long way towards giving you an attitude of gratitude, not only for yourself but for your healthy children and grandchildren. Please, give this some thought and if you would like to get involved in making a change, please feel free to phone me at 250-763-8003. Patricia Graham, Kelowna

The Surrey contract details the windfall of unused sick days that must be paid out to employees who retire as early as age 55. The maximum is 150 days, for a lavish perk

Summer camping in our own valley backyard

I

can’t recall a more enjoyable month of August since my youth. Teresa booked a full week of holidays, as well as a few other days during the month, resulting in a couple of extra long weekends. Since I am fortunate (broke) enough to work for both myself and another company that largely allows me to plan my own schedule, I likewise chose time off in August. That convenience equated to more time for us to play tourist in our own valley—i.e. lots of time camping. Economics dictate that our camping outings truly mean ‘camping’— no RVs or camper vans, just a good ol’ tent. However, I must admit our twist on roughing it came with some padding.   Tez decided two years ago that a thin little foamy on the hard ground would no longer cut it, so she got out the tape measure and calculator and figured out that we could afford a bed-in-a-bag (complete with the blow-up mattress) which barely fits in the tent. - Carrying an inflated -bed into our tent tends to mdraw some unique eyebrow lifting looks from dany eye-witnesses nearby. We started our lazy -camping days by the nwater on the August long sweekend taking part in -the annual Rod and Annie -Bell bash in Lake Counwtry, which meant three -wonderful days of sleeping next to Woods Lake, dprobably the warmest lake in the province next kto Osoyoos Lake. The following week, my buddy Curtis and I ventured in his realely comfy camper trailer tup to Island Lake (above -Winfield) for another two nights and three days of efishing. A memorable adventure that will flash nthrough my brain for the rest of my days, I am sure. p A few days, later Tez -and I ventured south to tOsoyoos for a fabulous -night of fun and friend-ship at the Osoyoos De-sert Centre fundraising oevent. - ‘Romancing the De-sert’ is a terrific night feanturing evening boardwalk ttours of the unique protected area while learning about the amazing flora -and fauna of the preserved desert.

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge along the boardwalk were manned that evening by wine-tasting stations armed by local wineries—which obviously enhanced the evening. Scrumptious food and fine music capped off the evening under a full moon and stars. Another great night to remember.  A special bonus was running into my childhood buddy Barry Smith and his lovely wife Leslie at the event. Seems bizarre having to drive two hours away to run into a friend who lives in the same town as us.    Two days later, Tez and I found ourselves tenting on the shores of Okanagan Lake at the peaceful Okanagan Church Camp known as

Owaissi. As mentioned in a column two weeks ago, the camp is still a fabulous place for kids to enjoy the sunny days of summer. From the comfort of our tucked away private camp site, we could hear the youngsters playing near by—and it sure was neat. For some reason, the sounds of youngsters having fun is never a burden—unlike listening to kids fight and scream and/ or playing Marco Polo by the hour (which they do at the Accent Inn next to our house). Camp coordinator Keith Thom does a marvellous job of running the facility for the board of directors. However, in order for the facility to continue to fills its mandate of providing camps for all who wish to attend (and to continue the ongoing maintenance of the camp) continual funding is imperative.

uring September, I encourage you to take a short stroll in the downtown core to see some very good examples of ornamental grasses. About 10 years ago, when grasses were uncommon in public places, I was delighted to discover the parks department had planted an ornamental grass garden on the slope in front of the Kelowna Museum. Beginning at the Queensway end, there is Korean feather-reed grass (Calamagrortis brachytricha), switch grass (Panicum virgatum ‘Heavy Metal’), Indian grass (Sorgastrum nutans) and fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides). On the other side of the steps blue lime grass or sand dune grass (Leymus arenarius or Elymus glaucus) has continued to spread even though most was removed after the first year. Do not use this in your gardens. Other grasses on this

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele side include little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), tufted hair grass (Deschampsia caespitosa ‘Goldtau’), and blue fescue. All tolerate low water conditions. With the slope, species needing more water can be placed at the lower side where it will be moister. This is a low maintenance garden. Grasses are cut back in late fall. Many varieties stand up well through winter, so in a home garden they could be left until spring. Stuart Park, along the waterfront, has a predominance of mass plantings of ornamental grasses. Most have moderate to low water require-

ments. Miscanthus grasses at the south end are a classic example of large fall blooming grasses. They have moderate water needs. On the other side of the bear statue, above the red annual salvia and silver dusty miller, are tufted hair grass and fountain grass. Along the waterfront walkway, little bluestem is backed by June-blooming Karl Foerster featherreed grass. Further north the fine, blue foliage of little bluestem is complimented by small blue-leaved arching forms of dwarf blue Arctic willow (Salix purpurea ‘Nana’). Arctic willow has fine, dark purple stems making it very attractive when the ice rink is in use. Along Water Street, Arctic willow is mass planted with blue oat grass. Its mound of fine foliage stays blue all winter. These two parks are a good illustration of how grasses soften edges and stand up well in high traffic areas. They also create a calming, natural look. The largest grass, hardy in our zone 5 climate, is Erinathus ravennae (hardy pampas grass). With regular irrigation, on the south side of the RCMP Detachment on Doyle Avenue it grows up to fourteen feet tall. In drier conditions plants are shorter. You can hear the wind in their broad, tough leaves. In winter they are an erect silhouette no matter how heavy the snowfall. More grass gardens, mass planted with perennials, can be seen along Sunset Drive. Checkthe website www.bluestem.ca for photos and more extensive information on ornamental grasses. The drought tolerant species are also in the searchable plant database at www.okanaganxeriscape.org. ••• My next xeriscape class is Thursday, Oct. 17 and 24.

West Kelowna mud boggers fined for destroying local environment Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

A woodland meadow with a pond in one corner was destroyed by young people driving through it with trucks and cars August 25 and five young people from West Kelowna have been fined for causing damage to the environment. Each was fined $575 for the afternoon of mud bogging reports Conservation Officer Mike Stern, who said the wildlife meadow is located out of Peachland in the Glen Lake area. Although Mother Nature will have to do the remediation work to the meadow and wetland that were damaged, Stern said the boys offered to do some cleanup work on an old cabin in the area that vandals have filled with garbage. “Most often those involved in mud bogging activities are not as cooperative,” he commented, adding, “so it was encouraging.” After he interviewed the teenagers involved, he said he felt they were actually unaware of the environmental impact of

Overall, he said mud bogging is decreasing through education and enforcement the past few years, because more people are realizing t he damage it causes and the penalties there are now.

their actions, and they were remorseful, so he opted to go the route of a ticket and a fine instead of charges, which would have to be dealt with in court. Stern said they received a report from someone who saw the vehicles, covered in mud, leaving the area, then a later tip with the address where a muddy vehicle was located in Glenrosa. He found the others involved by monitoring Facebook and other social media, which he noted is a warning to all young people to be aware of what they post to such sites. The meadow and wetland are well-used by deer and mooseCSA_P_Demay_5.83w_X_7h_0212_Layout as well as 1 other wildlife and it will be at least a year before some of the damage is re-

There have also been some isolated incidents such as in the Chute Lake area where two ATV drivers were fined earlier in the year. “Wetlands in the (dry) Okanagan are too important not to protect, so we enforce the regulations,” he commented.

Second life for quirky Portland village PORTLAND, Ore.— Greetings from fastchanging Portland. On your right, note the dozens of breweries and distilleries, none of which existed until the other day. On your left, take care not to provoke the bicyclists, who may control everything by the day after tomorrow. If you’d like to feed them, locavore treats and artisan coffee only, please. And now to today’s postcard picture, just ahead among the hippies and hipsters of the Eastside’s Hawthorne neighbourhood: the Bagdad theatre & Pub, built in 1927. The Bagdad is not just a longtime landmark on the less-shiny side of town; it’s also proof of the powers of historic preservation, neon and beer (not necessarily in that order). In a city in love with making things and recycling them, it’s an old postcard with a fresh message scrawled on the back. Los Angeles Times photographer Mark Boster and I recently spent several days exploring it and the neighbourhoods nearby. “Bagdad,” by the way,

was a common spelling in the ’20s. And somehow, the missing “h” contributes to the whole electrified-ersatz-Islamic-hallucination effect of the theatre’s exterior. But inside, the Bagdad is about movies, beer, burgers and pizza. You can eat a meal and drink beer in the theatre, a concept that’s novel in Los Angeles but old hat here. This month’s schedule, typically eclectic, includes screenings of The Great Gatsby (2013) and Repo Man (1984), a panel discussion on Portland in the ’60s and a documentary on elk hunting. Seen enough elk hunting? Sit at one of the pub’s sidewalk tables (well, between cloudbursts), round the corner to shoot pool in the Back Stage Bar or have a smoke at the cigar bar Greater Trumps. All fall within the Bagdad’s domain. And within a few blocks, you can shop for books at Powell’s (which opened one shop in 1987, another in 1992), check out old vinyl at Jackpot Records, wolf down breakfast treats from the Waffle Window at dinner time or order at the counter of the merrily chaotic ¿Por Que No? Ta-

queria. Do not, however, try to sleep at the Sapphire Hotel near 50th Avenue. Maybe it once was a seedy flophouse favoured by sailors and hookers, but it’s now an elegantly dim restaurant and bar featuring $9 cocktails that threaten to become novellas. From the menu: “Lounge Singer. That woman had the voice of a thousand cigarettes. I pined for her. Fig bourbon, rhubarb, pomegranate molasses.” Already, you may be thinking of Portlandia, the four-year-old web/TV comedy show that deftly sketches the whole sustainably sourced, beersoaked, coffee-powered, homemade, bike-driven scene. Have you seen the one with the Cultured Caveman, a food stand specializing in paleo-diet snacks? Or Hopworks, the all-organic eco-brewpub? Or the street-corner salesman who peddles microkites that fit in your shirt pocket? No, you have not. Because those are all real. (And by the way: From 1861 into the 1880s, Hawthorne Boulevard was known as Asylum Avenue because its most notable building, now gone, was

Dr. J.C. Hawthorne’s Oregon Hospital for the Insane.) But let’s get back to the 3700 block of Hawthorne, where the Bagdad marquee gleams red and green at dusk and an old vaudeville curtain hangs above the bottles in the Back Stage Bar. “It’s got that haunted feeling. You just don’t get that in a modern building,” Rachel Flesher, Bagdad property manager, said recently. When the theatre went up, America was still abuzz over the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in Egypt, and designers were entranced by all things Arabian, or Islamic or, you know, sort of like that. Accordingly, the Bagdad featured a grab bag of Arabian, Moorish and Mediterranean flourishes, including usherettes in harem garb. For the opening, somebody brought a live camel. But the Great Depression was brewing, “talkies” were coming and silent-movie palaces were about to go out of style. Over the decades, Bagdad owners and managers zigged and zagged, first booking vaudeville acts, later sectioning space off to make a duplex, then a

triplex. And then in 1991, brothers and pub moguls Mike and Brian McMenamin bought and renovated the theatre, returning it to a single-screen configuration. The key innovation, borrowed from another McMenamin project a few years before, was the view ‘n’ brew angle. “There’s nothing like going to watch a movie with a pint of Hammerhead,” Flesher likes to say. The history-loving, hippie-friendly McMenamin empire has grown to more than 50 pubs, breweries and hotels in Oregon and Washington, a remarkable story— but you know what familiarity breeds. With the many McMenamin successes has come occasional local sniping about bland fare and seemingly stoned staffers. (“McMinimize your expectations,” a sour commenter once wrote on Portlandbarfly.com.) It’s true that the Bagdad’s barbecue chicken pizza wasn’t my favourite meal in Portland, but it had a nice smoky taste, and the Terminator Stout was on the money. Our

a tweak to the menu. The new Bagdad, Flesher said, will focus more on firstrun movies. I can imagine that this mainstream move might trouble people with Keep Portland Weird bumper stickers on their kid-sized bicycles, maybe even inspiring a Portlandia episode. I’m reserving judgment and clinging to the best moment of this trip, which the Bagdad helped make possible.

It was night. I was standing across the street from the theatre at Powell’s. Tyson Birnbaum, the bookshop’s assistant manager, was at the counter, about to compare his Portland experience to a Ray Bradbury short story, All Summer in a Day, about a planet that gets two hours of sunshine every seven years.

piring young author who wore a black mask and wielded a VW hubcap shield. Naturally, Boster stepped up to photograph them. For a moment, the three of them were joined in a circle dance of creation, affectation and documentation, all backlit by those red and green Bagdad lights. “Now,” I thought. “Now, I’m in Portland.”

TIMELINE: BIRTH AND REBIRTH OF THE BAGDAD

1927 Southeastern Portland, Ore.’s Hawthorne corridor is transformed by the opening of the Bagdad theatre. Bankrolled in part by Universal Pictures, it’s a 1,500-seat “oasis for entertainment,” with one enormous electric BAGDAD sign hanging over the street and a second jutting from the roof. 1940s A new manager turns the theatre toward vaudeville acts. The Bagdad sign over the street has come down and a new marquee is wrapped around the front of the building. As the theatre’s vaudeville era winds down in 1948, one of its final acts is the Will Mastin Trio, including a young singer-dancer named Sammy Davis Jr. 1973 After decades of decline, the Bagdad is split into a two-screen operation by a new owner. Eventually, there will be three screens: one in the former balcony, one in the

Canadian-made Corolla still aims to be No. 1 Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

Quebec City: It’s the largest volume selling car of all time, but can the Toyota Corolla still cut it after 47 years? Sold in 154 countries and produced in 16 locations around the world including Canada, Corolla accounts for 25 per cent of total sales for the biggest automaker on the globe. At the Canadian press launch of the 2014 Corolla held in Quebec City, the importance of the 11th generation compact sedan to Toyota’s viability was stressed repeatedly. Along with the Honda Civic, Corolla practically invented the compact car segment, building its reputation on quality, practicality and reliability. In fact, some 80 per cent of Corollas built in the Toyota Motor Manufacturing (TMMC) plant in Cambridge, Ont., are still

on the road. TMMC has been producing Corollas since the first one, a Mica Blue sedan, rolled off the assembly line on November 30, 1988. To date, more than 1.3 million Corollas have been sold in Canada and it is the most massed produced car in history with more than 40 million and counting. Those core attributes remain unchanged in the 2014 Corolla that went on sale in Canada on Sept. 3. But what has changed is Corolla’s attitude. During a reveal of the new car earlier this year in Ottawa, Toyota Canada officials joked that they would offer everything except beige paint. And it’s true the predominant colour reflected what made the Corolla strong in the minds of Canadian owners. It was a daily driver that could be used without worry and without price shock at the

pump. But it was bland, bland, bland and slowly, Canadians shifted to more stylish offerings such as Elantra and Mazda3. Increasing consumers were seeking a compact sedan that offered a dash of panache along with economy and reliability. The first hint of design mojo was seen in January at the Detroit Auto Shown with that Corolla Furia Concept. Looking very smart on the stand, I admit I dismissed it as a nice design exercise but too daring for the core Corolla buyer. I was wrong. All the styling cues from the Furia can be found on the 2014 Corolla from the deep and large trapezoid grille to the standard LED highlights set far back on the fenders to give a swept back line to the car. Folks, this is one car See Toyota A24

tuned for fuel economy and underbody panels plus low rolling resistance tires for greater overall efficiency. The new Corolla’s suspension uses a Macpherson strut design for the front with a new, more rigid control arm design. A torsion beam arrangement is used for the rear. Both suspension layouts have been designed to take advantage of the additional body rigidity to provide improved handling responses and steering control. While the spring rates on Corolla have been optimized for ride comfort, the S-model features unique coil, damper, and bushing tuning to help offer a sportier driving characteristic. When journalists came back from driving the new Corolla, all they could talk about was the CVT. “It’s a CVT that doesn’t act like one,” said my co-driver meaning the whine and leisurely acceleration of early CVTs was not present.

you have to see in the flesh, especially beside an older model. There will be four models: CE, LE, S and the new Eco with starting prices of $15,995, $19,215, $19,500 and $20,250 respectively. Buyers can chose from two versions of its 1.8-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder with 132 hp and 128 lb/ft of torque on the CE, LE and Sport and 140 hp and 126 lb/ft of torque on the Eco, which Toyota calls its most fuel efficient and powerful Corolla ever. Also new on the LE, S and Eco is a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that Toyota calls the CVTi-S (I for intelligent, S for shift). The CVT is the first pulley-style unit in North America. The base CE has a four-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. The Eco is a new trim model that uses the engine

In manual shift mode, the CVT has seven speeds actuated by paddle shifters.

REAR seat knee and legroom is generous for a compact sedan. One reason is the front seat (shown) which has a thinner back that adds to the rear passenger volume.

ger seat all the way back, I rode in the rear during the afternoon and can report there was more than enough legroom to the point I actual dozed off for a few minutes such, was the smoothness of the ride and that on potholed Quebec roads. I have to mention the front seats, that while larger, have a new thinner back that is supportive for those in front while gaining precious knee room millimeters for those in the back. Trunk space is larger than the 2013 model at 369 litres (13.0 cu ft) primarily due to the higher deck lid. That in turn makes ordering a version with the backup camera something to seriously consider.

And of course I cannot stress how important the Corolla is to the Canadian and Ontario economies. How it is built is a direct reflection of what this country can do and I challenge anyone to find a misaligned body panel or shut line on this car. Believe me, I looked at each and every one at the press launch. The Corolla is more than the start of Toyota’s avowed goal to become the best selling compact car in Canada but it could be a game changer for the brand around the world.

Birds eye view from unmanned chopper Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A pair of local photographers have literally earned themselves a licence to a whole new creative platform. Shawn Talbot and Jan Vozenilek, a well-known photographer and cinematographer respectively, have secured a Special Flight Operation Certificate from Transport Canada to launch their latest photographic venture, an eightblade “octocopter” they are calling the Rubicon Aerial Cinema. Capable of delivering images from just above ground level, residents of Kelowna, not to mention tourists the world over, are going to be seeing this city from a whole new perspective—through the lens of an unmanned remote control chopper. “Tourism Kelowna has hired us to do a video shoot from 56-feet up, running down Bernard Avenue. In the entire history of Kelowna that shot has never been done before. It couldn’t happen before,” said Vozenilek in interview this week. Both the cinematographer and photographer have worked in aerial photography for years, which meant flying over their subjects at an average of 1000 feet in the air to capture a bird’s eye view of what’s happening below. With the German-engineered flying contraption, they will be able to air-lift equipment on a customized ride with every top-of-the-line component available to stabilize and optimize the high-definition images they are producing. To the untrained masses, it will mean they can swoop down into spaces as low as ground level and up to 400-feet in the air providing an intimate view of the vineyards, hills and lakes that make the Okanagan so beautiful. “The GPS typically locks to between eight and 14 signals so it’s not moving. It’s staying right there,” said Talbot, who explained how the contraption can be manipulated to provide exactly the image either photographer wants. The Rubicon comes with a black box from which flight data can be downloaded into Google Earth to

SHAWN TALBOT and Jan Vozenilek, of Rubicon Aerial Cinema, have been travelling over B.C. shooting new images, like this shot OVER the grasslands of Kamloops. check exactly how a each venture plays out. Every 10 missions, or so, Talbot does a double check to ensure there’s nothing wrong with a component or engine. He is the pilot—trained first on toys, as a kid, then on quadcopters with four blades and finally on a simulator. In 150 flights, nothing has gone wrong, other than the crowds. Over the weekend they were filming in City Park and had onlookers tracking the multi-bladed beast from many kilometres away, gathering around to watch the action. “We were literally hats on, sunglasses down, otherwise we couldn’t have gotten anything done,” said Vozenilek. Their new-found notoriety will likely be worth it in short order, however. Originally designed for the military, Vozenilek said they had been watching the technology develop for some time before purchasing their gear and are booking up clients very quickly. From Ex Nihilo Winery to Sparkling Hill Resort to Botegga Farm Inn and Studio, the shoots they’ve done so far have secured some of the most unique advertising imagery seen in some time. And when it comes to their own work, their passion projects, the sky will literally be the limit. “We both have a real interest in conservation efforts and conservation photography,” explained Talbot, who is an award-winning pho-

tographer with international credits. He has been recognized for this work in Maclean’s Magazine, the Globe and Mail and National Geographic. Among his more unique assignments of late was an open-heart surgery shoot at Kelowna General Hospital showcased on his blog at (shawntalbot.com/blog) and a mansion on a West Kelowna vineyard that will be auctioned off next month without a minimum bid. Vozenilek, meanwhile, is a cinematographer and now well-known public speaker who is likely best known locally for his project on Midway Atoll, a poignant visual exploration of the destruction our wasteful society is having on thousands of beautiful albatrosses. Vozenilek said he had hoped to use a Rubicon or other similar unmanned aerial device to shoot for the documentary, but the budget did not permit it at the time. The pair have already booked a trip to Iceland to film next year, one of the most beautiful places on earth in their books, and are hoping to track down the Kermode spirit bear in the the Great Bear Rain Forest, as well. They have connected with local search and rescue personnel and will soon be helping with local search efforts. But for now, they are facing one big challenge: to clear the crowds just enough to shine in their new adventure. Twitter @jaswrites

A

s farmers continue to deservedly attain celebrity status these days amongst communities involved in the food revolution and/or the eat/shop local movements, there is only one type of farmer that holds the key to our existence: The bee farmer. Did you know that if bees became extinct, our food supply would shut down and in a mere four years humanity would cease to exist? Listen. This is serious stuff—especially when we are learning that our bee population is diminishing due to our involvement with genetically modified crops. We need

Jennifer Schell to band together to educate our world about the importance of this buzzing little honey maker to ensure its survival in a natural world. Thanks to bee farmers (bee keepers or apiculturists), like our local advocate Helen Kennedy, who are working hard to drive this distress message into the masses, some progress is being

made. People are becoming alarmed and are beginning to ask questions. Why are dead hives being reported in the news? One of the biggest issues today is the discovery that many of these hives have been proven to have been feeding on GMO crops. Helen explains, “it is not the adult bee that is the only concern, it is the hive. The nectar and pollen being brought back by the worker bees from the GMO crops is incomplete therefore causing malnourishment of the eggs and affecting the second and third generations re-

getting suited up in a bee suit to be able to get up close to the hives. It was fascinating, inspiring and incredibly educational. Helen and her husband Rick Appel together nurture 70 hives of apis millifera bees

(also known as the Western honeybee species) on their farm. It has always confused me when I have seen different names on honey packaging ie.: clover honey, elderflower honey, lavender honey—how the heck do they know which bees are feeding where? Helen explained that it is through tasting each frame of honey that they can determine the different flavours and aromas that would have been imparted by the particular plant. Our local expert “nose” chef Mark Filatow of Waterfront Wines Restaurant who is also a sommelier, helps Helen detect the different nuances. He has affection for the elderflower honey, which he features on his menu. Helen also operates a booth at the local Kelowna Farmers Market where she sells a variety of honey and honey products, beeswax candles as well as produce from their farm. Helen and Rick grow a wide variety of vegetables and berries on the farm for the bees to forage on as well as for themselves and for sale at the market. They are actually the only asparagus growers in the area and grow over 30 varieties of garlic. I will leave you with Helen’s valiant manifesto: “We are not beekeepers—it is the bees who keep us.” Book your tour at Arlo’s Honey Farm in beautiful South Kelowna today.

Moras in TV fight show

KEVIN PARNELL/CAPITAL NEWS

KELOWNA tennis player Lily-Ana Kreutzer had a good showing recently at the Canadian Junior Outdoor U-16 Championships in Toronto.

▼ TENNIS

Kreutzer focused on her sport Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Growing up in Kelowna, Lily-Ana Kreutzer was active in several sports, playing soccer as well as other activities popular amongst athletic kids. But when she first grabbed a tennis racket at the age of six, something felt right. It wasn’t long before tennis was her main sport as she left the others behind to focus on the hard court. “I really liked tennis when I first tried it,” Kreutzer said before a recent training session at the Okanagan Mission Tennis Club. “I started when I was six and then I began tournaments around 11.

When I tried it I just loved it. Now it’s the only thing I do. It’s what I am focused on.” Now 15 and heading into Grade 11 at Okanagan Mission Secondary, Kruetzer is coming off her toughest tournament test yet as she played at the Under-16 Junior National Championships in Toronto at the end of August where she matched up against many of the top young female tennis players in Canada. The competition was stiff but Kreutzer was up to the challenge as she went 2-and-2 in four matches including wins over top players from Alberta and Quebec. “I thought I played well,” she said of the com-

petition—her first outdoor nationals. “It was really tough. I wasn’t sure I was going to win a match. It was exciting for me. “I like the tough competition,” she said. “It makes me want to play better. It gives me more confidence and shows me it’s possible to play as well as the girls that are ranked higher.” Coached by Holger Nierfeld, Kreutzer will use the result as a motivator as she gets set for another high school season as well as some more tournaments through the winter and spring. Nierfeld says the results in Toronto proves she is on the right track. “It was the first time

she went. We decided to go and see what happens. Getting two wins out of it…we’ll take that,” said Nierfeld, adding that Kreutzer has a wide range of talents. “She’s an allaround player. She can play at the base line or at the net.” With a couple more years of high school still to go as well as some more planned international tournaments, Kreutzer is moving forward in the sport, eventually hoping to turn her talent into a scholarship. “I think tennis gives me a good opportunity to get a scholarship, go to the US and play on a university team,” she said. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

It’s another feather in the cap for Kelowna’s Toshido MMA Club and the chance of a lifetime for Sarah Moras, Toshido’s only competitive female fighter. Moras has been chosen to participate in the popular UFC/FOX production The Ultimate Fighter, the popular television show that pits up and coming MMA competitors against each other in an elimination contest. The show began on Wednesday and Moras was successful in her first bout, winning to make the cast and the final 16. It was a big win for Moras who will now have the chance to compete for a UFC contract, now that she is in the final 16. Toshido MMA has already produced UFC veteran Rory MacDonald and The Ultimate Fighter 15 semi-finalist Mike Hill and Moras is beginning to make a name for herself in the women’s side of the sport. “Toshido MMA is already known for producing world class male fighters like UFC Superstar Rory MacDonald,” said Toshido MMA head

coach David Lea. “But Sarah Moras is going to make some huge waves in the UFC on the female side. Her life as a fighter will never be the same. I couldn’t be more proud.” This is the first season that will feature female fighters, showcasing the top women fighters in the world at 135 lbs. In its 18th season, the Ultimate Fighter will feature 16 males and 16 females competing for a six-figure contact with the UFC and The Ultimate Fight title. Those who

make the cut will live and train under the same roof in the TUF house while being coached by arch-rivals – Current UFC Bantamweight Female Champion, Ronda Rousey and #1 Contender, Miesha Tate. “This is an exciting time for female MMA,” said Lea. “Many people in the industry didn’t think we would ever see women fighters in the UFC. Now that it is happening, the world will finally see the incredible skills these women fighters possess.”

Owls host Graham in gridiron action B.C. high school football’s 2013 exhibition season continues this Friday in Kelowna as the KSS Owls play host to GW Graham from Chilliwack. Kick off at the Apple Bowl is 5 p.m. Last weekend, the Owls dropped a close 29-

28 contest to the Edmonton Harry Ainlay Titans. In other action Friday, the Rutland Voodoos will visit Salmon Arm in the first pre-season test for both programs. The Mt. Boucherie Bears, who went unbeaten in Okanagan league

Rockets down a few players As is the case pretty much every September, the Kelowna Rockets will be marginally undermanned for their final two games of the Western Hockey League’s exhibition season. With nine players off to NHL camps and two more sidelined with injury, Ryan Huska’s squad will have maximum of 19 players for Friday night’s visit to Kamloops and 17 for Saturday’s meeting with the Vancouver Giants at Prospera Place. Damon Severson and Myles Bell will be avail-

able Friday, but will head to New Jersey on Saturday. “It’s a bit of a skeleton crew, but most teams are pretty much in the same boat this time of year,” said Huska, in his seventh season as Rockets head coach. “I’m not sure what Kamloops’ situation

is, but all teams are down a few guys so I don’t think it will be a factor.” With most of the club’s roster decisions already having been made, Huska said the main objective of this weekend’s pre-season games will be to develop some good habits heading into 201314. “It’s the habits we’re going to work on, the guys have to learn to play the right way and make sure they’re working hard every shift,” he said. “The structure will come with time, so right now be sure

the guys are working and playing with pace, and that they continue that into the season.” The Rockets open the WHL regular season Friday, Sept. 20 in Kamloops, then will host the Blazers on Saturday night.

LIVE IT. BREATHE IT. FEEL IT.

If the second half of the B.C Football Conference season at all resembles the first half of 2013, there won’t be a whole lot more Shane Beatty could ask for in his rookie campaign as head coach of the Okanagan Sun. Beatty’s squad will look to maintain its grasp on top spot in the conference this weekend when they visit the longtime rival Vancouver Island Raiders. Kick off Saturday at Caledonia Park is 2 p.m. Pending the decision of their appeal with the BCFC for an earlier forfeited loss, the Sun sits at 4-1, while the Raiders are 3-2. Okanagan thwarted

V.I. by a 17-3 score in the previous meeting between the clubs on Aug. 3 at the Apple Bowl. A victory this weekend would move the Sun a big step closer to securing top spot in the BCFC and home field advantage throughout the post-season. Following this week’s game, the Sun will be on the road for two more weeks, Sept. 14 in Chilliwack and Sept. 21 in

Kamloops. Okanagan will then wrap the regular season at home, Sept. 29 vs. the Huskers and Oct. 6 against the Broncos. Meanwhile, the Sun is still awaiting word on its appeal with the BCFC regarding the club’s forfeited win against Chilliwack on July 27 due to an ineligible player. The two sides will meet with an arbitrator on Sept. 10 to discuss the situation. According to Sun GM Jay Christensen, the time frame for a final decision is unknown. If the decision is overturned the Sun’s record would revert to 5-0.

Molson Tour wraps

Sixteen weeks after the Molson Tour kickoff, the dust has settled on the Okanagan Golf Club’s recreational golf tour and two players emerged as champions after the match play playoffs. The 2013 gold division champion was Tim Jex, who outlasted Basil Cooper in the match play finale, blasting Cooper with his 6-and-5 victory. (Six holes up with five to play). In the silver division match play final Tim Arbuthnot battled back and forth with Ken Mulleny before winning the match with just one hole to play. The Molson Tour featured close to 100 players who carded scores using the Stableford scoring system and handicaps through the regular season to advance to the match play playoffs. ••• A couple of Kelowna players took on the top senior golfers at the Canadian Men’s Senior Championships at the Briars Golf Club in Ontario recently. Wayne Schaeffer finished in a tie for 45th after rounds of 76-7576-72 to finish at plus-15 for the event while Norm Bradley tied for 47th in Canada with rounds of 75-73-79-73 for a plus-16 total. Bradley also played on Team B.C. which placed second in the inter-provincial team competition.

t Interior Division preview: Teams appear well balanced ▼ BCHL

n It’s season 52 in the . B.C. Hockey League with 6 16 teams hoping to join the host Vernon Vipers in n the Royal Bank Cup next n May at Kal Tire Place. The Vipers will host the Canadian Junior A championships but before they get there, there appears to be parity in the Inl terior Division for 2013r 14 with four out of six e teams to make the playoffs M Here’s a look at each team in the division in the n order they finished last season.

ways know you have a good team when it’s hard to pick your captains. We have got so many guys that can wear letters on this team. Guys that have been captains on other teams in the past. That to me is what’s going to make this team go.”

3. MERRITT CENTENNIALS

2. WEST KELOWNA WARRIORS

1. PENTICTON VEES

Key Returnees: F Brad McClure (27-19-46) named captain during the -summer, F Ryan Gropp -(12-19-31) named Interior Conference Rookie sof the Year, F Cody DedPourcq (13-8-21), F Travis Blanleil (6-6-12), F hCam Amantea (7-12-19). Rookie Sensations: -Alexandre Coulombe, 18, mjoins the Vees after playling prep hockey with the yStanstead College Sparrtans. The 6-foot-4 D-man .was ranked 68th by NHL Central Scouting prior to the 2013 entry draft. Jack nRamsey, the son of for-mer NHL defenceman Mike Ramsey, is a 6-footy2 power forward brings great vision and hockey sense while Anthony -Conti, 17, helped guide -the Vancouver Northwest Giants to their fifth -consecutive B.C. Masjor Midget League chamnpionship. Strengths: The Vees coaching staff believe they have done a good job -building from the back eend out. Coach Fred Harbinson likes the experi-ence of his goalies with e20-year-old Olivier Man-tha, who just committed to the University of Alasrka-Anchorage Seawolves, and 18-year-old Hunt-er Miska. The defence is 5made up of a group with mtwo to three years of junnior A experience joined fby rookies Coulombe and 6Jarod Hilderman. The forwards all possess strong skating ability and bring something to the table. Coach’s quote (Fred Harbinson): “You al-

Key Returnees: F Seb Lloyd (24-42-66), F Ambrose Firkus (11-920), F David Pope (17-2239, drafted by Detroit), F Matt Anholt (9-22-31), D Adam Plant (5-23-28). Rookie Sensations: F Liam Blackburn comes from Prince George where last season he was the second-leading BCMML scorer (3550-85) with the Cariboo Cougars. West Kelowna’s F Brett Mennear, garnered 24-31-55 in 38 games with the major midget Okanagan Rockets. Boston native Carl Hesler is a 19-year-old rookie out of prep school south of the border and is already committed to Dartmouth University Big Green for the 2014-15 season. Strengths: With the likes of Lloyd, Firkus and Pope all returning up front, the Warriors will have a skilled offensive attack and will rely on youth and newcomers to round out the forward lines. On defence, Plant returns after last season playing on the top pairing while 20-year-old Jaden Schmeisser, acquired in an off-season trade, will bring a veteran presence after playing the last two seasons in Victoria. Coaches quote (Rylan Ferster, who signed a five-year extension in the off season): “I’m optimistic about the season. We have more new faces than we had last year so it will take some time to get a read on the team. It’s going to be a tough division. There are going to be two really good teams that don’t make the playoffs. Our goal is to make the playoffs and go from there.”

Key Returnees: F Sebastien Paré (17-2744), F Scott Patterson (1114-25), F Jeff Wight (1310-23), D Tyler Martin (6-17-23), D Dane Birks (5-15-20). Rookie Sensations: Head coach Luke Pierce spent the summer looking specifically for players who could provide more offence. In the likes of Rhett Willcox (96), Gavin Gould (96) and Adam Tracey (95), the Cents may have just what the doctor ordered. Willcox, the younger brother of former Centennial and Philadelphia Flyer’s 2012 draft pick Reese Willcox, netted 21 goals and 52 points in 40 games last season with the Valley West Hawks of the BCMML. Strengths: The Cents have a solid nucleus of returning veterans (including 2013 NHL draft pick Birks on defence) as well some exciting, talented new recruits. They expect to once again contend for top spot in their division. The departure of goalie Tyler Steel to Brown University left a big hole to fill. Sophomore starter Russell Sanderson allowed just one goal in the preseason. Coach’s Quote (Luke Pierce): “We are very excited to get this season started with what appears to be a very promising, young group of players. This past year saw many of our longtime players move on, and we can’t wait to work on building the Cents’ culture with this new group. Expectations here are to remain in the upper echelon of our conference. We know how daunting that task is. With a lot of new faces playing key roles on our team, it will be up to myself and Joe Martin to expedite the process of teaching Merritt Centennials hockey.”

(18-16-1, 2.89 GAA, .914 SAV). Rookie Sensations: Vernon minor hockey product Colton Thibault excelled in his first year of junior B with the Knights, racking up 1626-42 in 49 games. F Jack Berezin, the son of former NHLer Perry Berezan, is a 17-year-old forward who recorded 12-517 while playing a gritty two-way game with the Calgary Buffaloes. Strengths: In his first year as Salmon Arm’s GM, Troy Mick gutted the program, trading 13 of 16 returnees, and they still made the playoffs. The ‘Backs top line of Gillies, Anderson and Landon Smith will be supported by a deep forward corps. Coach’s Quote (Mick): “I’m a lot happier where I am today that I was this time last year because I really didn’t know our roster. We’ve improved our program from top to bottom.”

have a strong and versatile defensive core with returning veterans Pears, Braedon Jones, and Valik Chichkin. Throw in newly acquired 20-yearold Curtis Toneff and Alberta pickup Joel Webb, 18, Nick Patey, 18, and Nathan Browne, 19, of Vernon, the Smokies will be big and stingy in their own end. Coach’s quote (Bill Birks): “Our goaltending is the best we’ve ever had here, with two legit guys that can play goal. Our back end played real well (in exhibition games). Our top nine, I think we’re pretty solid. We’re not going to score seven or eight goals a game but with our goaltending and our back end, we got a pretty good core group of kids . . . I’m excited to get going.”

Key Returnees: F Alex Gillies (21-26-47), F Evan Anderson (10-1424), D Mitchell Ferguson (6-16-22), G Adam Clark

Key Returnees: F Mason Blacklock (19-1635), D Jason Bird (3-4-7), D Ryan Renz (3-23-26), G Austin Smith (13-26-1, 2.82 GAA, .908 SAV). Rookie Sensations: F Matty Saharchuk led the KIJHL-finalist North Okanagan Knights in regular-season scoring with 32-28-60 in 50 games, and added 15 playoff points. Dallas Calvin, a 6-foot-5 forward, was fifth in KIJHL scoring last season with 31-43-74 in 40 games. F Liam Cough-

5. TRAIL SMOKE EATERS

Key Returnees: F Adam Wheeldon (8-1018), D Braden Pears (629-35) , F Scott Davidson (11-23-34), F Jesse Knowler (9-14-23), F Bryce Knapp (injured last season), and G Adam Todd (12-6-0, 3.63 GAA, .891 SAV). Rookie Sensations: Although listed at fivefoot-eight, Riley Brandt plays like he’s a foot taller. The 16-year-old combines sheer grit and determination, with touch and finesse around the net. The arrival of 20-yearold rookie Dustin Nikkel (13-7-1, 2.71 GAA, .922 SAV) from the Knights, gives the Smokies a legitimate goaltending tandem that can single-handedly win games. Strengths: The Smoke Eaters should

lin is a 6-foot-4 centre out of Catholic Memorial. Strengths: With the return of Blacklock, Craig Martin and Dexter Dancs, along with the addition of snipers Michael McNicholas and Demico Hannoun, the Vipers should easily outperform last year’s league-worst offence. Renz, Bird and Josh Bryan lead a physical defensive corps. The team is the biggest Vernon has fielded in years. Coach’s Quote (Jason Williamson): “We’ll be good defensively, but at the same time we definitely have some offensive guys, so we’re going to be tough to defend against.

Vivian was born a twin to parents Arthur and Edith Geen in Reston, Manitoba. A few years later, the family relocated to an orchard in Ellison BC, just north of Kelowna. Sadly her twin brother Irwin, died in a tragic accident in 1946, leaving Vivian and her brothers Glen (passed away in 1990 ) and Gerald. Her parents passed away in 1975 After graduating from Rutland High School in 1953. Vivian attended Vancouver Normal School. She started her first career, as an elementary school teacher, in Vancouver and Maple Ridge, BC. She married Tom Pelton, and while continuing to teach full-time, she raised four children: Doug, Brad, Tim and Kristy. She also became a specialist in teaching children with learning difficulties. After many years in Maple Ridge, the family moved to Victoria where Vivian started her second career as a successful realtor with DFH. She and Tom also became avid bridge players, and as usual, Vivian made many good friends through work and bridge. In the early 1990’s, Vivian and Tom divorced, although they remained good friends, honouring the happy times they had shared. Vivian started yet another career, as a painter. Vivian had always been creatively talented and was already a skilled seamstress, quilter, knitter and decorator. Her talent for colour and design was now expressed in her whimsical, happy paintings that provided a window into “The World According To Vivian”. At this stage in her life, Vivian met up again with an old friend from Kelowna, Al Kuhn, now a widower. They married in 1994 and Vivian moved to Al’s newly built log house in Kelowna, where they set up the Blueberry Hill Gallery. Vivian became a successful artist, creating many beautiful watercolor and acrylic paintings. Al and Vivian spent many happy years in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2010. They enjoyed their time in Victoria where they were active in the Cadboro Bay United Church and Goward House. They also enjoyed the company of Vivian’s children and their families who live in Victoria.

August bullish Insurance pitfalls of doing-it-yourself for housing sales ▼ HOME RENOVATIONS

Doing-it-yourself renovations are very popular these days, with lots of stores and TV shows dedicated to the subject. Part of the appeal is the promise of saving money and knowing that you did it all on your own. But, if you’re an absolute beginner do you really have the know-how to remodel your bathroom, for example? What if something went wrong—or worse —what if you hurt yourself? Even if you do your own work, you still need to contact your insurance company to ensure you’re covered through the project and that your policy is updated accordingly. You don’t want to be surprised by a huge increase in your insurance

CONTRIBUTED

TAKING on a home renovation project without being

sure about what you are doing comes with some risks to consider. premium if you end up making a mistake. By checking in with your provider, you’ll be protected during your project. In some cases,

improvements like upgrading the electrical system or replacing a weathered roof may help lower your premiums. However, if the renovation increases the re-

placement value of the home—for example, with a new addition, or the installation of high-end granite countertops or expensive appliances—the opposite may be true. Remember to keep your pride in check if you start to have problems; it’s OK to call in the professionals. In fact, even if you’re the handiest person alive with a tool set, using a qualified pro could still save you money. Especially for those home improvements that are most likely to affect the value of your property and the safety of your family and friends, such as wiring, plumbing, insulation or roofing. Put your mind at ease by entrusting home repair to certified professionals. You’ll receive a guarantee and if complications

arise, you’ll have legal recourse against the contractor. While you’re at it, ensure you’re 100 per cent fire-proof Take advantage of this renewal time to ensure your house is fire-proof. Ensure your smoke detectors are well located and maintained. Clean them and replace the batteries. Also, consider equipping your home with a fire alarm system connected to a remote monitoring center. Place one or more fire extinguishers in locations that all family members can access easily and be sure you know how to use them properly. To avoid electrical fires, carefully inspect surge protectors, extension cords, lamps and other electrical devices.

▼ OF PRIME INTEREST

Understanding the three-month interest penalty While we see that interest rates are still low, how do you take advantage of the record-low rates if you are currently in a fixed-rate mortgage contract?  You’ve likely heard the horror stories of people being charged $10,000 to $15,000 in penalties to break that mortgage contract if you don’t have the good fortune to be buying a house at this moment or have your mortgage come up for renewal right now. For those now paying over five per cent interest on their mortgage, to break that contract and renegotiate a lower rate can come at a significant cost. Seeking out a mortgage broker is one avenue to help you determine if paying the IRD (Interest Rate Differential) is worthwhile by providing a refinance savings

analysis. During the early 1990s, mortgage penalties were capped at three months interest. In 1999, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation quietly removed the three-month interest cap from their policy and banks slowly changed their own policies to allow for IRD to be charged. Today, we have banks using an unfair penalty calculation that does more than cover any potential loss. The formula for an IRD penalty is not uniform among all lenders or regulated by the Canada Bank Act. While recovering loss on a mortgage contract is a reasonable request, the problem is that banks have been left to calculate IRD penalties whichever way they want. This means that some lending institutions have

been overcharging clients. So, ask for a printed “information only” discharge statement for your existing mortgage. Check to see if the lending institution has applied the allowable pre-payment privilege to the discharge. Check the comparable interest rate used to calculate the IRD. You can also engage a third party firm to review your IRD penalty. There are companies which, for a percentage of the recovered penalty, will negotiate down an unfair IRD penalty on your behalf. Lastly, write the government to evoke change. There is no ethical justification for a financial institution to maximize profits on the backs of average Canadians by playing games with early mortgage renewal penalties.

In February 2010, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced in the budget that he was bringing in legislation to make the early renewal penalties consistent among all Canadian financial institutions. It is now years later and thousands of Canadians have been overpaying IRD penalties. Why is it taking the federal government so long to do the right thing?

A

s the summer closes with its last wave of heat, so does the real estate market for the Central Okanagan. As predicted by many economists, August finished strong for housing sales. Real estate agents’ phones were ringing as inventory remained low, coupling with hungry buyers eager to settle down before the sluggish school months set in, resulting in an increase of sales and stable sales prices. Residential sales for the Central Okanagan jumped 14.21 per cent from this time last year, rising from 183 to 209 sales. Condominiums exREAL ESTATE perienced a similar situRUNDOWN ation, as sales were up a hefty 27.27 per cent from last year’s August numbers, seeing an increase from 77 to 98 units sold. For townhomes, sales Ceinwen Morgan leapt from 58 sales in August of 2012 to 66 this year, reflecting an increase of 13.79 per cent. For the month of August, overall housing sales were up by a confident 12.66 per cent. Still, new inventory for the Central Okanagan remained on the low side. Residential listings reflected a number of 352 from 2012’s number of 386. That’s a decrease of 8.81 per cent. Total inventory for residential listings came in at 1,477 still down from August last year at 1,672, a diminishing 11.66 per cent. Surprisingly, new condominium listings jumped 12.68 per cent, from 142 to 160 new units on the market, but still down from the total of 822 when compared to 2012’s August figures of 895, dwindling 8.16 per cent. Townhomes experienced an increase as well, a whopping 24.49 per cent boost from 98 new listings to 122, but like condo listings that number is still down 11.80 per cent for the grand total for townhome listings. Perhaps with low inventory and continued whispers of mortgage rates soon to be on the move upwards, now is the time to jump into homeownership. For example, Dominion Lending Center is offering and affordable 3.49 per cent on a five-year term. With a 25 year amortization period and purchase price of $200,000, your low monthly payment could be approximately $997.49. One has to ask oneself: “How can you afford not to?” But before getting too excited, remember that the traditional slower fall and winter months for real estate activity are now before us. So those of you who are on the fence, perhaps now is the time to plunge into the market before inventory starts to drop and interest rates possibly start going up. Ceinwen Morgan works in the Kelowna real estate industry.
