SAFETY - Not an issue say officials

The decrease was attributed to “a combination of factors,” according to the report summary, but was mainly “due to the fact the safety program is not proactively managed on an ongoing basis.” It goes on to note, “few of the recommendations from the 2010 audit were implemented,” among them a suggestion to create “a single safety management system that applied to all regional district operations.” Kronebusch said his team started working through the most important recommendations, but subsequent internal audits meant the list kept growing, and the development of a safety system was complicated by the range of work conditions faced by RDOS employees. Cathy Cook, executive director of the B.C. Municipal Safety Association, said simulations she’s run do not suggest the new online audit system that separates out peripheral organizations will result in a flood of recertification failures in other places. “All that does is give the organization a clearer picture of the higher-hazard occupations,” she said. “It does not result in failure.”. Chief Brad Fossett of the Willowbrook Volunteer Fire Department said his group was not among those audited, and he’s “not the least bit concerned” about the report. “Every meeting that we have (and) every training session that we have is all about worker safety, because we’re firefighters,” he said. “We’re going into circumstances that we know are unsafe, so we’re always trying to train towards the safest method of doing something.” Fossett said the lack of an RDOS-wide safety system “is a non-issue in my mind.” The executive summary credited the RDOS with fostering a strong awareness of safety among most departments, having foundation documents in place

City identifies more unsightly properties Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Penticton is moving ahead on cleaning up nuisance and unsightly properties, but some are saying the city needs to move faster. Two weeks ago, city council voted unanimously to declare 363 Churchill Ave. a nuisance property. Tuesday, at their regular council meeting, they did the same for 555 Wade Ave. According to Ken Kunka, building and permitting manager, the property has been vacant for many years, and while the building seems to be structurally sound, he was seeking the ability to take remedial action to remove the building and clean up the property. “It has been a very difficult case to follow up with the property owners, and we have sought legal counsel regarding this,” said Kunka, noting that the case files, which date back to 2008, include a visit by the RCMP in July 2013 to collect stolen bicycles being stored on the property. “We can deal with untidiness, but we believe the problem is with the home being vacant and boarded attracting criminal activities,” said Kunka. “We believe that moving ahead with removal would be in the best consideration of the community.” Designating a property as a nuisance opens the way for city staff to

take aggressive action to clean up the properties, after giving the owners a 30-day grace period to take action themselves. The owners are also given a chance to plead their case before council, which the owners of the Churchill property did not take on Sept. 3. In the case of the Wade property, realtor Rick Appleton came forward to speak for owners Ming Leung and Shun Yi Chen, assuring council the state of the property would be addressed. “I put it on the market today,” said Appleton, noting that the nonresident owners do not speak English, accounting for some of the communication problems. “I have told them it has to be cleaned up and they are in agreement to that. Probably within the week.” While it looks like these two properties will soon be taken care of, there are more problem sites in the city, and Coun. Helena Konanz wants to speed up the process. “If we really want to continue with the momentum of cleaning up the city of this type of problem, maybe we can bring forward six or seven at a time,” said Konanz. Moving quicker is also what Eileen Cain would like to see. A resident in a mobile home park, she wants bylaw officers to step up enforcement when they see offending properties, rather than waiting for a complaint from neighbours.

This house aT 555 Wade ave. e., vacant for several years, is the latest to be declared a nuisance by the City of Penticton and slated for cleanup at the owner’s expense. unlike others that have reached this stage, a representative for the property owners says the site will be taken care of before the 30-day deadline.

steve Kidd/Western News

“If you want to get them to do anything, you have to personally phone and report your neighbour, so you have to end up being the bad guy, even though the bylaw people drive through the park, they see it, they know it, they know there is a fire hazard in here and yet, when it comes to walking the talk, you can’t get anything done,” said Cain, adding that the

problem isn’t limited to her home. “This isn’t about low end or high end, this is about Penticton in general, all over,” she said. “People do not take pride in their property and when other people try to sell, it is jeopardizing their chances.” According to Anthony Haddad, director of development services, there were about 40 properties

listed that had some concerns or were a nuisance. “The majority of those have been dealt with, but there are some remaining ones. We can look at bringing them forward a little quicker,” said Haddad “We still have to look at giving the owner an opportunity to speak before council, so they have to be dealt with on a case by case basis.”

School renovations stalled by quake upgrade RCMP drug bust Joe Fries

Western News Staff

The nearly $3-billion tab to better protect some B.C. schools against earthquakes has likely contributed to a delay in breaking ground on a new gymnasium in Summerland. “Most of the Ministry of Education’s capital money is going towards seismic upgrading, and a lot of that money is still remaining in the Lower Mainland,” facilities director Doug Gorcak told Okanagan Skaha School District trustees Wednesday. “It’s been a real drain on the capital funds that the ministry has had available.” A proposed $13-million renovation at Summerland Secondary School is the top priority identified in the five-year capital plan Gorcak presented to Wednesday’s school board committee meeting. The overhaul calls for construction of a new, larger gym, plus a reworking of the change rooms and entranceway between the theatre and school. Besides improving accessibility for peo-

ple with mobility issues, the work should also make the facility safer. “You can’t play a proper game of volleyball in that gym because it’s too narrow. The line for the outline (of the court) is actually up the wall,” said Trustee Shelley Clarke. Superintendent Wendy Hyer said the gym is also a tough space in which to teach. “If your class size is 30, you’ve got three badminton courts and only 12 kids can play at a time, so you’ve got a number of kids who are not involved in a class. So I just think it presents a lot of challenges to running effective instruction,” she explained. “Most of our schools have really good facilities, including gymnasiums. You just go take a look at the (Summerland) gym and you’d see why it needs to be updated. It’s antiquated and out of date for the size of the school.” Trustee Linda Van Alphen noted the project has been on the district’s capital wish-list for the decade she’s been on the school board. The school’s gym did, however, have its floor refinished this summer and also re-

ceived cosmetic improvements as part of the district’s annual summer maintenance program. Other major projects in Summerland included electrical upgrades, plus new sidewalks and parking lot configuration at Giant’s Head Elementary, and new lockers at Trout Creek Elementary. In Penticton, a new roof was put on Carmi Elementary, playground equipment was added at McNicoll Park Middle, and the tennis courts were resurfaced at Princess Margaret Secondary. That school also had its geothermal system connected to neighbouring Skaha Lake Middle. No schools in the B.C. Interior are among the 133 that have received seismic upgrades, according to a list maintained by the Education Ministry. A ministry webpage for its seismic program states the government has spent, or committed, $2.2 billion to upgrade or replace 213 high-risk schools since 2001, and expects to shell out $600 million more to address challenges at another 104 schools.

A man with 84 prior criminal convictions was arrested by the Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force Tuesday. Blair Robert Balch, a 41-year-old from Penticton, faces one charge of possession of methamphetamine for the purposes of trafficking. Cpl. Brad Myhre said officers stopped a vehicle on Argyle Street and arrested the three occupants for drug trafficking. Another male and a female in the vehicle were later released. Mounties located a quantity of crystal methamphetamine and associated drug trafficking paraphernalia. Balch has a criminal record dating back to 2002 in Penticton for a range of charges including theft under $5,000, assault, robbery and being unlawfully at large amongst others. Balch was remanded into custody until his next appearance on Thursday.

City to wants to know what residents think Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

For the second year in a row, Penticton residents are getting an opportunity to tell city hall how they think the city should be run. To be sure, most residents don’t wait for a special invitation to tell the municipal government what they think, but this opportunity is in the form of the second annual citizen satisfaction survey. Over the next two

weeks the city has contracted a survey company to phone 400 random residents and ask them questions relating to quality of life, satisfaction with city services, preferred communications channels and what they would advise the city do when facing budget demands. The questions on the 2013 survey will be similar to last year, according to communications officer Simone Blais. “There are a few

additions, nothing too dramatic,” said Blais. “Questions about the waterfront, for example, were less of a priority this time around and there are some additions with respect to downtown revitalization. “I think we are generally getting a sense of what the community would like to see.” It was important to keep the surveys similar, Blais said, so they would be able to make comparisons to

the baseline created last year. “This year will be interesting,” she said. “It is the first year we are going to have comparative data. “So if we see improvements or areas that need improvement, that is something we are really curious about.” Residents who are not contacted by phone can also fill out the survey online at www.surveymk.com/s/ Penticton_2013 until Sept. 23.

Blais said Discovery Research, the company contracted to do the survey in 2012, was surprised that 477 people were willing to fill out the online survey. “Our community seems to take well to online initiatives. “I am hoping they still come out and let us know what they think,” said Blais, who is hoping for an even larger online sample this year. The survey is

a valuable tool, especially with the 2014 budget deliberations coming up this fall, according to Blais. Results of the survey are used by city staff and council to determine community priorities, and whether a project has wide backing or is only supported by a few residents. “This survey is part of the City of Penticton’s continuing effort to seek input from the public in

pursuit of service excellence,” said deputy mayor Wes Hopkin. “Understanding how the City of Penticton is serving its residents helps the organization plan and budget appropriately.” The full report from last year’s survey, including the online survey results, is available on the City of Penticton’s website, w w w. p e n t i c t o n . c a , by searching “2012 Penticton Citizen Survey.”

A place to stay forever PUBLIC NOTICE SCHOOL ZONE SAFETY In the interest of child safety, the City of Penticton Bylaw Services would like to remind drivers that “no stopping zones” and “loading zones” are important regulations under the Traffic Bylaw to ensure all pedestrians are safe. “No stopping zone” signs mean a vehicle is not allowed to stop, stand or park in that given area. This includes the quick stop to pick up or drop off a child. Vehicles in a “no stopping zone” receive $50 traffic ticket. “Loading zone” signs mean an occupied vehicle is permitted to stop, stand or park in this area for the purpose of picking up or dropping off a child. A vehicle left unattended in a “loading zone” will be issued a $50 traffic ticket. For questions or more information, contact Bylaw Services at 250-490-2440.

FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS The Works Division will commence its annual unidirectional water main flushing program within the Municipal area on commencing September 3 - October 31, 2013. Advantages of adopting a unidirectional water main flushing program will result in significant system improvements and cost savings such as:

• increased water velocity, which promotes better pipeline scouring • improved mineral and biological deposit removal • taste and odour control • reduction of turbidity • elimination of waterline re-fouling • reduced frequency of mainline flushing • reduced water usage • opportunity for infrastructure preventative maintenance (valve and hydrant exercising) • cost savings over traditional flushing. This may result in the water supply showing sediment and discoloration in various areas. This sediment is bacterially harmless, however, may cause some discoloration to laundry if not detected. To avoid any inconvenience check water color prior to using. If you do experience dirty water, simply run a cold water tap until water clears up. We thank you for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience you experience. For more information contact the City Yards at 250-490-2500.

CITIZEN SURVEY The City of Penticton has launched its annual Citizen Survey to gauge resident satisfaction and outline citizen priorities as part of its commitment to improving customer service. A phone survey will be conducted over two weeks to randomly poll a sample of City of Penticton residents on citizens’ perceptions on quality of life, satisfaction with various city services, preferred communications channels and what they would advise the City do when facing budget demands. Residents who are not contacted by phone are invited to take part in the process by completing an online survey located at www. penticton.ca/survey. The survey deadline is September 23, 2013.

City tempts potential construction workers Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Efforts have begun to attract people hired to work at the Okanagan Correctional Centre to choose Penticton as their home. “I have been trying to make contact with the P3 proponents because I think they are going to need to access lots of our local construction firms and local talent and I am curious to know if they have started to look at that and what the process is for doing that,” said Pennington. “I have started some of the legwork to find out what they are intending to do.” The estimated $200-million state-of-the art jail that will be built north of Oliver on the southern end of Senkulmen Business Park on Osoyoos Indian Band land is expected to create up to 500 direct and 500 indirect construction jobs. As well, it will create approximately 240 full-time jobs, a rash of part-time work and significant economic spinoff. “Even in the worst case scenario where no one is hired locally, it will have a huge impact on the hospitality sector,” said Pennington. While still in the initial stages of investigation into these questions for the large construction consortiums that have been short-listed for the project, the city is also examining what long-term jobs are available. Already they have information for those eyeing Penticton as their home that was created during a campaign for oil and gas workers. This information is found on the city website, under Move To Penticton, and contains details about daily life in the community. Pennington said Stats Canada information shows a couple with children spends on average $80,000 a year, in comparison to a senior living on their own who spends $20,000 a year. “If you think about the kind of spending between school supplies, clothes and all of those things for a family to live life, it is quite different than a senior. If we can attract some of those families to the region, specifically Penticton, it can make a huge difference to our economy,” said Pennington. The economic development officer said families relocating to work at the correction centre will also have to make a lifestyle choice, whether they want to live in a community where everything is within 10 minutes, or commute to amenities and maybe have different housing options and live in a smaller centre. “None of these are bad choices to make, I think you pitch what you have. Penticton is a fantastic place to live and there is a range of shopping from

little fruit markets to grocery chains, entertainment, dry cleaning or orthodontists or whatever you need all within a heartbeat. Some people may enjoy aspects of a smaller community,” said Pennington. “I think at the end of the day more people in the general area is better for everybody.” Pennington said she is working to get a good picture of how the proponents will be recruiting and hiring by the end of September, which in turn will help the city to promote itself to these potential workers. She added they are looking at how to expedite getting the information to local small to mediumsized businesses so they can also get involved. “I don’t know if these companies are sitting and ready to go or if they need some ramp up time and recruitment time, those are the things we need to find out. Either way we are ready now and we will be able to customize it once we find out this information and make it better,” she said. Howevere, the city will have competition. Oliver Mayor Ron Hovanes said he has fielded queries from people asking how they can get involved with the employment opportunities that will become available through the building of the correctional centre and when it opens. He added there hasn’t been much activity just yet. “I think we are talking shovel in the ground for the correctional centre early next year, nothing official yet of course because the whole project has to go to the treasury at the end of this year for the final approval of dollars.” While Oliver and Osoyoos do not have an economic development officer behind them like Okanagan Falls and Penticton, Hovanes said they have been working on a number of things in-house. “We have done a lot of things to make our community attractive. We have a tax exemption bylaw, reduced parking restrictions in the downtown area and there are other things that make our community attractive as well,” said Hovanes. “We have a full general hospital and a brand new $55-million high school that opened up this year.” On Oct. 9 Corrections BC will be hosting a public information session at the Oliver community centre at 6 p.m. and in Osoyoos on Oct. 10. B.C. Corrections spokesperson Marnie Mayhew said this is to update the status of the project, discuss employment opportunities and respond to any questions residents have. Mayhew said proponents have been short-listed and invited to submit comprehensive proposals to design, build, partially finance and maintain the new correctional centre. She said a proponent will be selected in early 2014.

Harper headed to Okanagan? Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Word is spreading that the Okanagan will receive a visit from Prime Minister Stephen Harper next week. But, Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas isn’t ready to confirm Harper is attending the B.C. Conservative caucus meeting he is hosting in conjunction with Kelowna Lake Country MP Ron Cannan next Friday. “There is certainly going to be a meeting of the minds on Sept. 13,” said Albas. “There is always an open invitation to the leader of our caucus, that if he wants to attend, he certainly can.”

But according to a party insider, Harper is attending a Conservative party member barbecue taking place at Quail’s Gate on Sept. 13. Previously, Harper went to the Lower Mainland for an annual function sponsored by Senator Gerry St. Germain. “Since the retirement of Senator St. Germain last year, that is not happening anymore,” said Albas. “The Prime Minister has been invited to come, so I certainly hope he can be there. I would love to show him some of this riding.” Besides Albas’s meeting of the B.C. federal Conservative caucus, Premier Christy Clark is also ex-

pected to be in her home riding of Westside-Kelowna to meet with members of the local business community, prompting speculation that Harper may also be planning to meet with her. Albas is focusing on his caucus meeting. “This is an initiative that I have been pursuing for a while. There is an number of people that are travelling right across the country: ministers and staff as well as the members from throughout B.C. and perhaps the Yukon,” he said. “Having them in our riding is a big honour and we are certainly going to show them a little about our riding.”

Candidates deserve our votes Of the three levels of government, there is no doubt being a municipal politician is the toughest of them all. As a federal or provincial politician, it is pretty easy to spend four years blending into the background. There are federal and provincial politicians, from far and near, who certainly work hard, but the decisions they make rarely find their way into the media. That reality is completely different for municipal politicians, especially in smaller communities such as Penticton. Dan Ashton, is a familiar name to most Pentictonites because of his tenure as mayor of Penticton. Have you seen his name in the media after he earned a seat in the provincial legislature? It takes courage and conviction to enter municipal politics because your neighbours know who you are and often are not afraid to let you know what they think of your most recent council decision. Saturday, eight individuals are on the ballot, three vying for the position of mayor of Penticton, and five for a single councillor position. Each has committed time and effort, above and beyond their regular lives, because they want to help make Penticton a better place. We owe it to them to take a few minutes out of our regular lives to vote. Voting takes place 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Penticton Seniors Drop-in Centre, 2965 South Main St., Penticton. PENTICTON WESTERN A shuttle service is provided from the bus stop located on Martin Street at Lakeshore Drive West, across from Gyro Park.

Putin likely facing last years in office “Each time one of us thinks ‘I’ll just stand aside and things will happen without me and I’ll wait,’ then he is helping this disgusting feudal system that sits like a spider in the Kremlin,” said Alexei Navalny, often billed as Russia’s top opposition leader, as he sat in a courtroom in Kirov in July awaiting conviction on embezzlement charges. True enough, but Vladimir Putin is not losing any sleep over it. The Russian president, currently hosting the G20 summit meeting in St Petersburg (September 5-6), has run the country as his private fiefdom for the past thirteen years. The media obey orders, political opponents are jailed on trumped-up corruption charges, and individuals who dig too deep into the murky history of Putin’s rapid rise to power (Anna Politkovskaya, Alexander Litvinenko, Yuri Shchekochikhin) die mysteriously of bullet wounds or poison. Navalny, a 37-yearold Moscow lawyer, rose to fame as an anti-

corruption campaigner during the 2011-12 protests against Putin because of his sharp, sardonic blog about Russian politics. He was then identified by the foreign media as the great new hope of the Russian opposition because he was hip, he was cool, he was everything that Russian leaders, whether in power or in opposition, have traditionally not been. His new political prominence promptly attracted the usual statesponsored charges of corruption, and on July 18 Navalny was found guilty of embezzlement (by a judge who has never issued a not guilty verdict) and sentenced to five years in prison. But then something odd happened. The state prosecutor asked that Navalny be left free pending his appeal, which could take months. Navalny is running for mayor of Moscow in the election on September 8. If he were in jail pending his appeal – the normal situation in politically motivated trials — he would have to drop out. Why is the state

Gwynne Dyer

Dyer Straits suddenly being nice to him? Because it wants him to run and lose – and it’s sure he will lose. The opinion polls give Navalny just over 10 per cent of the vote, compared to more than 50 per cent for the incumbent mayor, Sergei Sobyanin. Navalny’s presence on the ballot papers will lend some credibility to Sobyanin’s re-election, Navalny’s defeat will demonstrate how little popular support he actually has – and afterwards they’ll whisk him off to prison. But why does Navalny have so little popular support? Why do Russians put up with being ruled by Putin, an autocrat who no longer steals public money himself, but whose colleagues

and cronies all steal? (Putin made his secret pile back in the early 1990s, when he was a rising politician in the first post-Communist city government of St. Petersburg.) Well, before Putin came to power in 2000 they put up with eight years of Boris Yeltsin, a boorish drunk who not only stole from the Russians (as did most of his political allies) but also embarrassed them. Before that there was a brief interlude of honesty and sanity under Mikhail Gorbachev – but he is blamed by most Russians for all the bad things that have happened since the fall of the Soviet Union. And before that there was the Era of Stagnation, the last decades of Communist rule, when the state didn’t murder its own citizens so much any more, but everybody lived in relative poverty under a perpetual rain of brazen lies, and endured the constant insults and petty criminality of an arrogant Communist elite. Fifty years in which the politicians who ran Russia have

almost all been brutal, contemptible, or both. So the great mass of Russians have given up believing that any politician could be honest, or that anything could ever really change. Some urban sophisticates are drawn to Navalny’s post-modern style and his relentless critique of the Russian political system, but even in large parts of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and almost everywhere outside the big cities, that sort of thing has no pulling power at all. Putin’s macho style no longer wins him the old adulation either: a recent poll by the Levada Centre found that nearly half of all Russians want him to step down at the end of his current presidential term in 2018. But they’re not in any hurry about it, nor will they be unless global energy prices and Russian living standards start to fall. And Navalny won’t be out of jail in time to run in the 2018 election anyway. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Secret meetings at city hall need to stop There are too many secret meetings going on at Penticton City Hall. New heights of arrogance and disrespect were reached at a recent council meeting, not only for the right of the press to question council’s decisions but also the overriding right of the taxpayer to know what their city council is doing. We have a right to know why council is making certain decisions and whether those decisions made on our behalf are in our best interest. When questioned by the press about the cemetery report being discussed in camera prior to the discussion around the council table, Deputy Mayor Wes Hopkin chairing the council meeting, said it was an informal

Evolution concocted by dead scientists

(re: Thanks for the wake up call, Letters, Western News, Aug. 28) Mr. Bish is arrogant to assert that all thinking people would naturally accept the scientific conclusions about the theory of evolution. First of all, not all thinking people are scientists and therefore not all thinking people necessarily are even interested in the theory of evolution. As for the theory of evolution, it is my theory that it was concocted by a bunch of long dead “scientists” who were less scientifically minded than they were utter athiests. I do not even remember this theory being addressed in school when I took science, then again I stopped studying science after a certain grade. Science and the knowledge of science has had many benefits but it also has had many ill effects, such as the development of the atomic bomb and other forms of munitions. The theory of evolution, as I understand it, has utterly no value at all to this thinking and questioning person and I am not one who puts scientists and their wisdom on a high pedestal as Stuart appears guilty of doing. I suggest, Stuart, that you stop generalizing about others and stop assuming you know the truth, especially when it comes to the conflict between science and faith or religion. Patrick Longworth Okanagan Falls

Scientists dropping evolution

Mr. Bish thank you for your re-

workshop but admitted the public was not informed of the meeting. The issue according to Hopkin was that it was an informal meeting where they have more time to ask questions and it is sometimes easier to have a conversation about these issues in an informal setting. I would suggest for the words informal setting, which Hopkin used, readers substitute secret meetings by council to discuss issues without the knowledge or benefit of public input. Councillor Vassilaki claiming nothing was hidden said it was a cemetery workshop where they asked questions in the workshop then asked the same questions later in the regular council meeting.

ply but as I have seen with many others and so many times, it is filled with claims. Those that do not believe in evolution do not have their head in the sand or have some blind faith. I cannot deny my personal experiences nor the mountains of evidence I have witnessed or experienced over the years. As with so many who think like you, they say something is not real because they themselves have not seen nor experienced it. As with many like you, they like to claim that only they think and have all the facts. Anyone who disagrees is not a thinker. You insult in hopes of shutting people up. I noticed that you failed to mention that there is a growing number of scientists who are dropping evolution. You should also point out that there is plenty of division with evolutionists as there are many different theories in it. You claim it has been analysed by “the best inquiring minds of the human race” which is a typical statement from an evolutionist. It is also another claim presented as a fact. You insult the many brilliant people who disagree with evolution. Not all who disagree or walk away from this belief are religious people either. Scientific research and evolution are two different things. They are lumped together but science actually benefits humanity and has a reason. All areas of science exists without evolution, yet it is forced on them. The mountain of proof you claim

is disputable and remains as such. There are highly intelligent people, who are scientists, who have and continue to show these so called facts are not so and again not all of them are religious. No matter what is presented it can be disputed. So Mr. Bish you can continue to say that those that disagree with evolution are not thinkers or insane, I am okay with that. I could say the same about those who believe in evolution. Of course we could banter on and on with this subject, but those who only look at the ground will never see the moon. I have to say something off topic. Awesome day Challenge Penticton. The vision of this event surpasses anything IMC had or has. Challenge has put the fun back in! It is truly something unique, and I know many others who participated are excited for next year. David Mercier Penticton

Road to Syria is costly

The road to Damascus via cruise missiles or other war moves by the bankrupt U.S. against Syria in response to alleged chemical attacks against its people is walking into a fatal trap set by the devil himself with long term disasterous consequences which makes the waste in Afghanistan and Iraq a side show. The road to Damascus attack is not supported by the vast number of world citizens, citing the Middle East history as one of constant war and turmoil from the beginning of time and has to be resolved amongst themselves however painful.

These two councillors, by their statements, have made it pretty plain that secret meetings are being held. When questioned about council promises to openness and accountability, Hopkin replied the issue was whether it was an issue that the public had an interest in. Perhaps Hopkin uses a crystal ball to ascertain the interest of the public. It is not surprising this council seems reluctant to return to Committee of the Whole. Further attempts at questioning about significant pay raises for senior staff of 10 to 15 per cent just prior to upcoming union negotiations was interrupted and overruled by Hopkin as inappropriate claiming that the press was fishing for a story.

Garry Litke now running for election as mayor, recently said, “Both systems work. There is nothing wrong with the way we are operating at the moment so if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” I would suggest it is broke. I would suggest that Committee of the Whole meetings are still being held except now they are secret tribunals with the public and press restricted from participation. Apparently 10 to 15 per cent raises for senior staff at city hall are none of our business either. When was the last time you had that kind of a raise?

Congratulations to Challenge Penticton I want to first thank Challange Penticton and the society for keeping alive the spirit of Iron distance racing in the south Okanagan. I am a three time finisher of Ironman Canada, back when there were only 800 competitors. I will have to race this one now. You put on a great show. I also want to thank Jennifer Andrews for the phone call to be lead bike for the run. The best seat in the house. I have had the honour to be lead bike in a number of running races that Jeff Symonds has entered and lead him to the finish line in all of them. Jeff, you were amazing to watch out there and a true professional with the other triathletes. I would like to share more about the run but space is limited. Thank you Challange Penticton and Jeff Symonds. See you in the pool Jeff. I’ll have the fast lane warmed up for you. Patrick J. Buchanan Penticton

Faces will replace figures as the focal point for the upcoming United Way campaign starting next month. According to Marla O’Brien, United Way executive director for the Central and South Okanagan Similkameen, the change is intended to increase participation at all levels. “For a long time United Way used that big dollar goal and thermometer style to inspire people to give,” said O’Brien. “But with that, I think the impact of the work we do in the community kind of got lost and we want to put the focus back on the real reason we exist: to make the community a better place. “Sometimes when the focus is on dollar figures, big numbers get bandied about and I’ve heard people say, ‘Well, maybe my $5 or $10 doesn’t make any difference and it’s not even worth it,’ but I think everybody’s participation does make a difference.” One way the organization already puts faces to the work it does is the annual Seeing is Believing bus tour of some of the local agencies it supports. The tour took representatives of groups which help fund the United Way to visit several city locations, including the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and Unity House, operated by the Canadian Mental Health Association. “It is these kinds of things where people from those organizations talk about what they do and the difference they make in people’s lives,” said the ex-

ecutive director. “At Unity house I saw lots of tears all around the room because there’s so many people who can relate to it.” O’Brien added her organization is not just about helping individuals living in poverty, the programs are broader and more far reaching. “You would be hard pressed not to find anyone who has benefited from United Way at some point in their lives by the initiatives we fund,” she said. Something new for the local campaign this time around is the Day of Caring, during which the United Way matches a specific business or groups of volunteers with an organization in need. “This once again brings home the human aspect in getting people out there to help other people,” said O’Brien. “At the end of the day, they come away with a good feeling, it’s great for team building and everyone benefits.” Something else she is looking forward to is the second annual drive-through breakfast at the Lakeside Resort. The 2012 event raised over $8,000 and with fundraising initiatives like the one recently announced by Skaha Ford and Penticton Kia, to be donated at this year’s breakfast, she believes that amount could increase substantially. “The groups we support do so much with so little and the impact can be double or three-fold with a little bit more investment,” said O’Brien. The new campaign officially begins Sept. 26 with a kickoff breakfast at the Penticton Ramada Inn and Suites. Donate now to build decent housing and brighter futures for hard-working families!

Saddling up for kids Mark Brett

Western News Staff

On the road again. This morning 19 riders began a gruelling 1,000-kilometre route through some of B.C.’s toughest terrain in the annual Cops for Kids Ride. The 10-day trek, captained by Penticton RCMP’s Cpl. Brian Burke, is to arrive in the Peach City for a 3 p.m. reception today at Boston Pizza. The ride is the largest fundraising component of the year-round charity, with the money going to help children with special needs through grants and equipment not otherwise affordable. Since the charity began in 2001, it has raised $300,000. An avid cyclist, Burke is a veteran police service dog handler who joined Cops for Kids in 2012. While new on the ride, it didn’t take long before what began as an interest turned into a passion. “After meeting children and families last year that were helped, it became all too clear,” said Burke. “Cops for Kids was a cause I could get behind and in turn share the message of this phenomenal charity. “We are driven by our commitment to the little people that we serve in the Southern Interior region of British Columbia and are devoted to making a difference in their lives.” So far, this year’s ride has raised about $74,000. In order to participate each cyclist must have a minimum donation of $2,000. Beginning in Kelowna, the route goes through Penticton to Osoyoos and Oliver then on to Cranbrook, Golden, Revelstoke, Three Valley Gap, Kamloops, Vernon, then winding back to the starting point. The stops in many of the communities often include hearing testimonials from recipient families. “I saw some families last year, single moms or

families who can barely scrape together two cents to pay for a meal and it really makes you take stock of just how tough your own life is day to day,” said Burke. He recalled one man who spoke briefly last year, adding by the time the speaker finished there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. “The gentleman spoke to us from the heart,” said the ride captain. “It was quite powerful and it just gives focus as to why you are there. It is just nice to actually see that we are helping.” There are two other local participants this year, RCMP Const. Brad Caruso and Brenda Kotzian, a retired Canadian Border Services agent. Burke admitted spending so much time in close proximity with others, often in very harsh conditions, can be a challenge. “I’d be naive to say things aren’t not going to come up but we just remind people we’re here to help and if you’re cold wet or hungry you’re going to be warm, dry and fed shortly,” he said. “I know from my experience that this year’s team will gel and grow together, but more importantly will act as a conduit of awareness for those children and families that struggle each day with medical and financial difficulties. “There’s a lot of solitude out there when you’re riding and it gives you a lot of time to think about why you are doing this.” Burke acknowledged the next 10 days will be mentally and physically taxing, but added: “I am truly grateful that I have the opportunity to participate and can’t wait to see what’s around that next corner, over the next hill, or to see that next smile on a child’s face because of the efforts of our ride team and supporters.” Donations can be made online at www.copsforkids.org.

Volunteers needed to read with area students Western News Staff

One to One is making a difference for South Okanagan students, one word at a time. The children’s literacy program helps elementary students who struggle with reading in the South Okanagan and Similkameen. The program is currently seeking volunteer tutors to assist students in schools throughout the area. “We have an amazing team of dedicated volunteer tutors,” said the program’s district co-ordinator, Joan Chambers. “We have retired teachers and education specialists, emptynesters who simply love reading, stay-home parents and seasonal employees. Tutors commit to helping once a week for 90 minutes, for a period of 12 weeks. Each tutor reads one to one for half an hour each, with three different students. “Our goal is to get them caught up with their peers as soon as possible, so they won’t fall behind in their learning,” said Chambers. “The tutors often tell us the time spent with the kids is one of the most gratifying things they do.” The co-ordinator said some children grow up in homes where they don’t see someone reading a book just for pleasure. Others avoid reading because they have become frustrated or embarrassed, causing them to fall further behind. Extra practice with the volunteers helps close that gap. The 12-week sessions begin in most area schools in October and February. Those wanting to join the program are asked to contact Chambers at 250-462-0636, email literacynowsos@gmail.com or visit www.literacynowso-s.ca for more information.

Volunteer tutor arleen Maeck works with a Carmi Elementary School student through the one to one program last year. The Literacy now program is seeking volunteers to help kids improve their reading skills.

DREAM CAFÉ owners Pierre Couture (above) and Debra Rice are concerned new fees brought forward by the federal government on U.S. musicians travelling to Canada to perform in venues such as theirs might be the end of importing talent to their loved stage. Mark Brett/Western News

Live music venue hit with fees Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

The owners of Dream Café said they could be facing tough decisions ahead with changes to regulations that will force them to pay fees to have U.S. musicians perform on their popular stage. “It is making me hesitate right now what I am going to put on our entertainment calendar. For that to be part of the budget is crazy,” said Debra Rice, business manager and coowner. “It is almost like we are being penalized.” In August, the federal government announced a processing fee of $275 for each position requested by employers applying to hire temporary foreign workers to cover the cost of a labour market opinion. This includes international artists performing in venues such as the Dream Café, where alcohol or food are the primary service. “I believe we are categorized in the wrong place. We are filling out an application that would be the same as a Mexican coming up here to work on a vineyard. I am bringing people that are artists

to play for two hours with their original music,” said Rice. Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas said part of this year’s federal budget included changes to the foreign temporary worker program. “As we all know there has been concerns, particularly in the last few years during tougher economic times that foreign temporary worker’s were displacing Canadian workers. Many of the changes brought forward, including adding a charge for what they call labour market opinion basically ensures Canadians are getting first crack at jobs. Before this point there was no actual fee charged to private companies for this service,” said Albas. “Before it was expected to be paid for by the general taxpayer and now it is expected to be paid for by the private interest that is looking to bring in foreign labour.” This fee applies to a host of industries. Rice said the work permit that was already required for her to bring in international artists was a hassle, putting her through the paces of filling out six pages of documents per person in the band. While she understands the no-

NAME:

tion of not having the taxpayers pay for the processing work, she doesn’t believe it should even be the duty of that office. Rice said if an international artist booked gigs at places like the Cleland Theatre in Penticton, Rogue Folk Club in Vancouver or Creekside Theatre in Lake Country they don’t have to pay a fee, but because Dream Café serves food and alcohol it is necessary. The coowner said she has considered changing her licence. “The only way is if we stopped all our food and alcohol service, changed our business name, started over again and incorporated as a theatre and didn’t serve anything except the occasional part-time liquor licence,” said Rice. “It doesn’t seem fair. We are primarily a venue, period. Yes, we serve lunch and barely make any money on it, but that is so we are open to sell tickets. Now they want to tack on fees to one of my gigs that I am just trying to break even on. The only time we are full is from music.” Rice said similar establishments in the Okanagan have already had tours cancelled and a U.S. agent she deals with is worried. Regular patrons of the

Dream Café have also voiced their concerns. ‘People love what we do and this is going to make it even harder. I can’t replace a band coming from Africa that sing and dance with a Canadian act. I do hire 80 to 90 per cent Canadian artists then I bring in a few spicy ones, especially in the summer when there are festivals going,” said Rice. Albas confirmed that venues like the Dream Café can share the costs between them, but it would be up to them to figure that aspect out. He added that he is encouraging venues and all businesses that are part of the new fee structure to contact him with their feedback. “Looking at red tape is something our government takes very seriously and I am going to be investigating that further and following up on that. There are always questions of how much paperwork is necessary, but on the other side we know Canadians have been clear that no one should be displaced by temporary foreign workers. We have enormous amount of talent in the Okanagan and that is another thing we need to take into consideration.”

Have you heard the one about Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s cursed car and the licence plate that predicted the end of the First World War? Penticton author Chris Garrish has. Along with a whole bunch of other interesting and quirky stories about the hidden nuances of licence plates, some of which will be on display at the Penticton Museum’s latest exhibition Tales From the Back Bumper: a 100 Year History of the Licence Plate. “It really was a challenge to take something as mundane as licence plates and make it into an interesting and even sexy exhibit,” said museum curator Peter Ord. “One of the interesting parts of the exhibit is the role of licence plates to portray image and propaganda, particularly you see that in the U.S.” Ord said licence plates tell a tale of life in the 20th century and even play a part in Penticton’s history, from Dr. R.B. White and his hand-painted personalized plates to Penticton’s own Pacific Coast Militia Rangers Company 71 who were part of Canada’s reserve defences in case of Japanese invasion during the Second World War. The exhibit explores the development, evolution and surprising controversy surrounding licence plates. It is these stories that drew Garrish in from the time he got the first plate during Expo 86 when the government designed a new licence plate for the province. “I would only get a plate every couple of years at first then I discovered the internet and this whole community of collectors and it took off from there,” said Garrish, who got into the hobby while working on his master’s thesis on fruit growers. Garrish’s research on licence

CHRisToPHeR gaRRisH, author of the book Tales from the Back Bumper, looks over part of the display of licence plates at the Penticton Museum and archives for the upcoming exhibit inspired by his book. The show’s opening is scheduled for sept. 12 and will run to Dec. 20.

Mark Brett/Western News

plates took him into the museum archives and a conversation with the curator. After building enough information to write a book (Tales From the Back Bumper: A Century of B.C. Licence Plates) with quirky stories, photos and history research into a book, Ord has now invited him back with his book in hand, as inspiration for the new exhibit. “Government-issued stamps, currency and coins, people are encouraged to have that kind of stuff. Plates you aren’t encouraged to have, so it was neat. As you get older you start to understand more of the slogans and messaging they convey.” Garrish has approximately 500 plates, by no means the largest collection around.

“I have a friend in town who has 30,000 plates. My wife won’t let me display mine but I have a website. The book is a compendium to the website and is more about the stories and interesting things about the plates. The website is more catered towards collecting dorks,” he said of www.bcpl8s.ca. Garrish said car connoisseurs, tailgating truckers and history buffs will find his book and the exhibit fascinating. Ord added the new installation highlights exactly what the museum sets out to do. “That is identify an object that most people wouldn’t even take a second glance at or even care about and look deeper to find out what really it tells us about ourselves and our com-

munity,” said Ord. “For us to be able to provide a local story as well adds this whole new perspective.” The curator said archives are open to the public to learn more from personal history, or for research Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. He welcomes people to come to the museum to use their references. Tales From the Back Bumper: a 100 Year History of the Licence Plate opens on Sept. 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Penticton Museum. Garrish will be at the opening event for a book signing and small presentation on the history of the licence plate in B.C. Admission is by donation and there will be a tailgate buffet of appetizers, beer, wine, door prizes and live music.

for fall programs Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Fall programming is filling up at the Shatford Centre as the Okanagan School of the Arts begins fundraising efforts to install a community kitchen. “We want to be able to work with the community to have this fabulous learning kitchen installed,” said Jane Shaak, Shatford Centre director. “We want to connect with local performers and artists that can brainstorm with us creative ways to raise funds for the Rotary Kitchen at the Shatford Centre and get this place hopping.” One of the major fundraisers coming up for the Shatford Centre OSA is A Taste for the Arts on Sept. 28. Shaak said the third annual event will feature food, performances and the latest art exhibit, Waxing Poetic:encaustic art in the Okanagan, will be on display. “This is a great event that features savoury culinary delights which is really a sampling of the best of our restaurants and caterers, Naramata Wines and the Cannery Brewing Company. It is a great night to support the arts,” said Shaak. The Rotary Kitchen at the Shatford Centre fundraising goal is $220,000 and Shaak said it will be the

“crown jewel” of the facility. Once installed, the kitchen will be accessible to all members of the community where culinary arts, lifestyle and wellness classes and workshops will be held. The Okanagan School of the Arts received $37,500 from the B.C. government in a one-time funding opportunity under the B.C. Creative Spaces program. Funding was given to projects that engage underserved groups, develop community partnerships and/or collaborations and have secured other sources of support. The funds have all been diverted to the community kitchen fundraising efforts. Working with the Shatford Centre OSA is the Rotary Club, an equal partner in the initiative. Fall and winter programs are beginning at the centre for both children and adults including classes with local artists like Jenny Long and others. “We have lots of amazing programming coming up this fall, some of which are returning artists, musicians that people really loved and other community groups using this facility,” said Shaak. “There is a real sense of collaboration here in this beautiful centre and we are really excited

about it.” Returning are musicians Darrel & Saskia of The Great Plains on Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. (tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door). Their songs reflect on the history and lifestyle of the rural Canadian areas. The Shatford Centre is hosting an Actor Series with casting director Deb Green, an active member of the film industry. She will be holding workshops for adults and teens (15 years and up) on auditioning for the camera (Sept. 14 or Oct. 5) and on scene study (Sept. 20 and 23 or, Oct. 18 and 21). A kids scene study, for ages eight to 14, is being held on Sept. 19 and 21. In October the We Love Documentary Film Festival returns with instructor Pepita Ferrari holding a series of screenings and events that illustrate the importance of preserving and encourage documentary filmmaking. For more on the Shatford Centre events visit their website at www.shatfordcentre. com, where you can also sign up for their e-newsletter. Programming for the Okanagan School of the Arts can also be found online at www.osarts. com or call 250-7707668.

Proposal puts racetrack in South Okanagan Percy N. Hébert Western News

The South Okanagan could be home to a new private car-racing facility called Area 27 Motorsports Club. Plans for the up to 5.5-kilometre track and related facilities were made public Sunday, Sept. 1., during a press conference at the Spirit Ridge Resort in Osoyoos. Proponents of the project, South Okanagan Motosports Corporation, want to build the facility on Osoyoos Indian Band land near Oliver. OIB chief Clarence Louie, on hand for the unveiling of the proposal, was enthusiastic about the potential for the racing facility with a construction budget of up to $12 million. “I just hope this happens,” said Louie. The benefit to the OIB, said Louie, in addition to tourism and income derived from renting the land to SOMC, is quite simple. “Jobs, jobs, jobs,” said Louie. Bill Drossos, president and one of the founders of SOMC, said the idea for a racetrack facility in the Okanagan, modelled on the resort golf club concept, came to him while spending time at the Shannonville Motorsport Park in Ontario. Every day he went to the Shannonville track, Drossos said he

had one thought going through his mind. “Wouldn’t it be great if we had something like this in the Okanagan,” he said. Then last year, driving back from Mt. Baldy, Drossos remembers looking across the valley at the bench on OIB land and thought it would be the perfect site for a racetrack. “I’ve never seen a better location anywhere,” he said. Drossos started making inquiries and phone calls and one of those early calls was to long-time friend Jacques Villeneuve, the famed Canadian Formula 1 and Indy Car champion. Villeneuve got behind the concept as a founding member of the SOMC, and was hired to design the track. “I went to check out the piece of land yesterday and there’s good potential,” said Villeneuve. “Amazing potential actually.” In addition to designing the race track, Villeneuve also served as inspiration for the name of the racing complex, Area 27. Both Jacques and his father Gilles raced under the number 27. Villeneuve said he wants to designing the Area 27 track so that it is challenging, exciting and fun to drive. “A track where you feel you’re going somewhere, so that there is a

logic or a reason for the corners,” he said. Also on hand for the announcement was Craig Finer, owner of Top Gear Karting in Penticton. The proposed track near Oliver is a win-win opportunity, said Finer. With only one karting facility west of Winnipeg, Finer sees Area 27 as an attractive option for go-kart enthusiasts in the northwest. “This is what we’ve been waiting for, a state of the art facility,” Finer said of the proposed Area 27 facility that also features a go-kart track and club. “This will put us in a unique position as a karting entity in Canada because there is no other karting club that has a facility like this at their disposal.” The first phase of construction for Area 27 includes the construction of the asphalt race track at a cost of approximately $7.5 million, as well as a driving academy and an onsite service building for the vehicles. Plans also include a clubhouse, townhouse condominiums and a car dealership. There is much work to be done before phase one begins, said SOMC chairman David King. The initial target, said King, is to sell at least 200 memberships starting at $30,000 with yearly membership dues in the $3,000 to $4,000 range.

Isaac, 6 and Joshua FIner, 11, are all smiles posing for a photo with Jacques Villeneuve last sunday at spirit ridge resort. Villeneuve is part of a consortium, south okanagan Motosports corp., proposing to build a private racetrack on osoyoos Indian Band land.

Percy n. hébert/Western news

Once the memberships are secured, then discussions with the OIB begin, a process which will take several months to complete. In addition to the driving academy and opportunity to race top-

of-the-line street cars, Dossor said SORC would also like to see professional racing at the circuit, including the Canadian Tire NASCAR series and Canadian Superbike motorcycle races.

Young Stars features five BCHL grads Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

As fans drool over the top NHL draft picks and other promising prospects during the Canucks Young Stars Classic, there are some who developed their skills in the B.C. Hockey League. Spread among the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, San Jose Sharks and Edmonton Oilers are five BCHL grads. The Canucks have Wesley Myron, who starred for the Victoria Grizzlies for three seasons, Zach Davies, a Prince George Spruce King for three seasons now a Flames prospect, Kyle Bigos of the Sharks, who played two seasons with the Vernon Vipers, Jujhar Khaira of the Oilers, who played two years with the Spruce Kings and Ben Betker, also of the Oilers, played one season with the West Kelowna Warriors. Ryan Howse, who played two games for the Spruce Kings, is listed on the Flames roster, but has chosen not to report to rookie camp and isn’t expected to play in the Classic. Myron, 21, played one season of college hockey with the Boston University Terriers where he collected two goals in 21 games. He made the jump to minor pro with Kalamazoo in the East Coast Hockey League tallying two goals and nine points in 17 games. Myron said playing in the BCHL gave him more time to develop. “I was a smaller guy when I entered the BCHL,” said the forward, listed at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. “I kind of hit my growth spurt in my 19- and 20-year-old year. Then went on to college and it kind of lengthened my career a bit. If I was a (Western Hockey League) guy, they can only hold three 20-year-olds. You kind of have to rush things.” With the Grizzlies where he potted 50 goals and 111 points in 131 games, the Victoria native gained a good confidence boost and earned the trust from his coaches. “I played almost all the key minutes,” he said. “It helped me develop my all around game.” Playing for the Terriers helped make the pro transition easier for Myron, who learned decisions need to be made quickly. During the tournament, Myron is excited to hit the ice and prove he has done the right things during the summer. “I’ve worked hard, I’ve put on weight. I have really worked on my game,” said Myron, who played for

VANCOUVER CANUCKS Young Stars netminder Joacim Eriksson blocks this scoring attempt by teammate Alex Friesen during Wednesday’s practice at the South Okangan Events Centre in preparation for Thursday’s start of the Vancouver Canucks Young Stars Classic. Games today include the Winnipeg Jets against the San Jose Sharks at 4 p.m. and the Canucks against the Calgary Flames in a 7:30 p.m. start. The Canucks Alumni game takes place Saturday at 5 p.m. Mark Brett/Western News

If I didn’t come to the BCHL in Vernon with coach Mark Ferner, I don’t think I would have developed the way I did or have as much success as I’ve had so far. It’s a skill league. A very competitive league. It showed me what I needed to do to get to the next level. — Kyle Bigos

Canada West in the World Junior A Challege in 2011-12. “I have a lot to prove.” BCHL commissioner John Grisdale said the number of grads playing in the tournament is a sign of the growth and quality of players coming for the junior A league. “I’m not surprised. I think there is a lot of players that could and should be involved in some of these camps,” he said. “If you look at our numbers, like last year we had 151 players playing in our league that had college education commitments. Of those, 95 were new. Led by our coaches and our managers, and obviously our owners are doing a great job of continuing to improve the tal-

ent level of our players.” Grisdale added the Canucks Young Stars Classic is a great opportunity for those kids to show what they can do. “I’m confident over time we will continue to provide more and more players,” he said. Bigos credits his former Vipers coach for his development. “I think if I didn’t come to the BCHL in Vernon with coach Mark Ferner, I don’t think I would have developed the way I did or as much success as I’ve had so far,” said the towering six-foot-four, 235 pound defenceman, drafted in the fourth round, 99th overall by Edmonton in 2009. “It’s a skill league. A very

competitive league. It showed me what I needed to do to get to the next level.” Bigos, who won an RBC Cup championship with the Vipers in 2008-09 and was given the Roland Mercier Trophy as RBC Cup MVP, said while with the Vipers he improved his skating and hockey sense. “Midgets, you can kind of get away with skill here and there, but at the next level, especially juniors, if you don’t play within the system, and improve on your individual skills, especially skating and the way you move and pass the puck, you are not going to be successful at the next level,” he said.

Bigos said the four years he spent with the Merrimack College Warriors, located 25 miles north of Boston, was amazing. It was another step up. “It’s so much harder to get every inch of ice and every pass through,” he said. “It prepares you for the next level as well.” Bigos, who was dealt to the Sharks on July 16, is looking forward to the competition. Their first game was against the Vancouver Canucks prospects on Thursday. On Friday, the Sharks take on the Winnipeg Jets at 4 p.m. “Everyone is going to be fighting for every inch to prove themselves to get a contract and a spot on the big team,” said Bigos, who is motivated to play in the NHL and avoid working a 9-5 job. “That’s always going to push your game up to the next level. That will make you play the best hockey you have played so far. I’m looking forward to reaching a new level.” For more coverage on the Canucks Young Stars Classic, check www.pentictonwesternnews.com and Wednesday’s issue.

Vees’ Ramsey makes TSN list Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Jack Ramsey was in class when he found out he made Craig Button’s draft list. “One of my teammates showed me. I was a bit surprised,” said the Penticton Vees rookie forward, ranked 27th among the top 30 players eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft, according to Button, TSN director of scouting. “It was exciting.” With it being the first list and the draft a ways away, Ramsey, son of former NHL defenceman Mike Ramsey, said he tries not to put too much stock in it. The 17-year-old describes himself as a two-way forward who plays smart and brings a physical dimension. Last season with the Minnetonka High School Skippers, Ramsey had nine goals and 27 points in 24 games. He decided to play junior hockey in Penticton because of his friend, Louie Nanne, a former Vee, whom he played against in high school. From there, he visited the Okanagan and loved the South Okanagan Events Centre and the opportunity to play in the BCHL. “It’s great hockey. It’s a beautiful place to play,” said Ramsey, who will play in the second annual CCM/USA Hockey AllAmerican Prospects Game on Sept. 26. “Lucky opportunity for me to get.” Making the adjustment from high school to junior will involve adapting to a more physical game against older competition. Playing 58 games compared to 24 will be another adjustment. “I’m just trying to hold on right now,” said Ramsey. One of the benefits of

having a father who played in the NHL is learning about the defensive side of hockey. Ramsey, who turns 18 on Nov. 2, talks to his father after every game. His dad watches most of them. “I have coaches on the bench, then when I get off the ice, I have another coach talk to me. Sometimes it can be a burden. Sometimes I don’t want to hear it,” he joked. “Most of the time it’s good stuff to hear. It helps me out.” A Minnesota Wild fan, Ramsey has had the pleasure of being near the team since his dad coached there. He also watched a lot of games as a kid at the Xcel Energy Center. “Sometimes I heard

things in the locker room I shouldn’t have heard,” said Ramsey, who looked up to former Wild players Wes Walz and the late Derek Boogaard. “I think it helped me mature. I had an advantage of being on the ice more. I got to skate there when I was little.” Ramsey, who likes the playing style of Wild forward Kyle Brodziak, will make his Vees debut this weekend during the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack. Their first game is against the Victoria Grizzlies and he’s excited for the new experience that including playing new teams. He will also have a watchful eye in the stands. “My dad is making the trip. Hopefully impress him a little bit,” he said.

“Big step, first weekend to try to make an impression.” Vees coach Fred Harbinson said his team has had good practices leading up to the weekend. “It’s going to be a funny atmosphere where you’re playing on the practice sheet at 3:30 in the afternoon,” said Harbinson, whose team went undefeated in five exhibition games. “It will be a different feel to the game. Go out there and play like we’ve been playing. We know every point is so critical. At the same time, we’re not going to live and die by this weekend.” Harbinson said they are excited about the group and how they have come

together. One of the highlights of their exhibition play was the performances of goalie Olivier Mantha and Hunter Miska, who allowed just three goals in the five games. The Vees began implementing their systems in training camp and Harbinson is happy with the defensive play. Vees notes: On Wednesday evening, Anthony Conti posted on Twitter that he had committed to the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, the same school Mantha will join next fall. Conti, whose Twitter handle is @ Anthonyconti61 said he’s “really happy to have committed to UAA today.” Also, the Vees have rounded out their leadership group as defenceman Chris Rygus joins Travis Blanleil as an assistant captain along with captain Brad McClure. In a statement released by the team, Harbinson said, “Chris has all the leadership qualities we look for in a captain, experience, dedication, and toughness.” “Chris will be able to draw from the many championship experiences he has been a part of in the past to help lead our team,” said Harbinson. Rygus, 20, is playing in his fourth and final season of junior hockey, his first with the Vees. The Mississauga, Ont. native played last season with the Nanaimo Clippers before being acquired via trade this past off-season. The six-foot-three rear-guard picked up six goals and 21 points in 55 games. Rygus also helped lead the Woodstock Slammers of the Maritime Junior Hockey League to the RBC Cup final in 2012, losing to the Vees 4-3.

The champion will receive an exemption into the 2014 RBC Canadian Open.

University of Victoria

Canada’s greatest rodeo cowboy has found a home in the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. Kenny McLean, born and raised in Okanagan Falls, was inducted on July 13, 2013 with his honour accepted by McLean’s only son Guy McLean in Colorado Springs, Colo. Guy said it was a proud moment to represent his late father. “It was an honour. It was cool. It was good for my boys too,” said Guy, whose father died in 2002 while on his horse between events at the Senior Pro Rodeo in Taber, Alta.” “Tayber, my youngest, didn’t get to meet him. It was kind of a good thing for them (sons) to see and recognize what he accomplished and can accomplish if you try.” During Kenny’s career, which began at age 17 according to his induction profile into the Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in Vernon, he was the U.S. national bronc riding champ in 1964, ‘68 and ‘71. In 77 rides at the National Finals Rodeo, he was bucked off only five times. Versatility helped Kenny win the Linderman Award (1967, 1969) given annually to the cowboy who displays the highest level of excellence at both

ends of the arena. Kenny won the B.C. Amateur Bronc Riding title in 1958 and is a five-time Canadian Saddle Bronc champion. He won a total of 14 Canadian Championships in his professional career. He is the only rodeo cowboy ever to be inducted as a member of the Order Of Canada and the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. Guy learned of his father’s induction early in 2013 and had time to think about it. He was feeling nervous about delivering a speech about his dad. “It was kind of a hard thing to do to stand up there and say a few things,” said Guy, adding that he’s the same as his father in the sense of how much talking he does. “We don’t say a whole bunch if we don’t have to. We just kind of do things and let whatever we do show.” Talking about his father in front of the crowd brought back memories, especially during a video montage highlighting McLean’s career. “They showed him and I at the very end fishing when I was four,” said Guy, who doesn’t have memories of his father in rodeos. “It was pretty tough to kind of … had to take a moment. “Sort of a tough one to do. It would have been a lot better if he took it.”

races Sunday include the Breast Cancer Survivor Finals and carnation ceremony starting approximately at noon.

Numbers are down for the 13th annual Penticton Dragon Boat Festival this weekend, but it’s not expected to take away from the quality of competition. “It’s still a great size festival,” said organizer Don Mulhall, who added there are 74 teams, including nine local crews. “It’s the perfect size. One of the

bigger events in B.C.” Last year 90 paddling teams competed. Mulhall said the likely reason for fewer teams is because of the Canadian nationals held in Victoria two weeks ago. The 80 sprint races with more than 2,000 paddlers are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Skaha Lake beginning at 8 a.m. Penticton women’s teams are expected to be

INSTRUMENT DISCOUNTS FOR

STUDENTS

Nearly 100 pitchers competed in the B.C. Horseshoe championship held near the Penticton Drop-In Centre Aug. 31 to Sept. 2. Organizer Carol Perry said it was very successful. “Everyone was quite happy,” said Perry, who was assisted by her husband Bud in putting the championship together. “The facilities are among the best in the Okanagan Valley.” Penticton’s lone winner was Gordon Dyck in Class F of the Elders 30-feet division. Dyck earned a payout of $85 for winning seven of nine games. “I played better than usual,” said Dyck, adding that the competitors were pretty good. “Games were close.” Winning the junior category was Victoria’s Lindsay Hodgins. The men’s class A winner was Victoria’s Tom Moffat, while Dry Creek’s Paul Onyschtschuk won class B. Class C went to Cloverdale’s Parri Kirk and class D went to Victoria’s Richard Stevens. Class E was won by Victoria pitcher George Taylor. In second was Summerland’s Ron Moser. The women’s A class was won by Carol Skrodolis of Powell River. Summerland’s Juanita Laye was third. Class B went to Victoria’s Melanie Taylor. Class C was won by Quesnel’s Helene Boudreau, while Class D went to Kamloops’ Jenna John. Faith Juell of Salmon Arm won Class E and F went to Marlene Marshall of Salmon Arm. Second went to Summerland’s Margo Pearson and third to Penticton’s Dorothy Harrold. Elders 30 Feet Class A was won by Matt Honkanen of Salmon Arm. Class B was won by Cloverdale’s Jim Grant. Class C went to Abbotsford’s John Collin. Provincial player Bob Price won Class D. Class E went to Abbotsford’s Archie Radowits. Class G was won by Powell River’s Harry Bey. The Penticton Horseshoe Club is having its windup later this month said Perry. People who have interest in joining the club are welcome to come. For info, she can be reached at 250-493-8891.
