Fact-finding mission brings minister to Child Development Centre Mark Brett

Western News Staff

B.C. Minister of Children and Family Development was in Penticton on a fact finding mission on Wednesday. While in town, Stephanie Cadieux (MLA Surrey-Cloverdale) made several stops, including one at the OSNS Child Development Centre. As well as touring the facility, the minister also sat down with new executive director Manisha Willms and recently-elected OSNS board president Tyler Chick. “I’m taking this opportunity to tour some of my MCFD offices and service providers in Penticton and give them a chance to tell us what they do well and what they’re proud of and, as well, talk about some of the challenges they’re facing,” said Cadieux. “I know from the perspective of the centre we’re visiting here today, certainly the challenges are similar to other parts of the province. There’s lots of kids we want to be able to provide service for and there are always challenges meeting the demand.” The centre offers a range of early intervention programs for children developmentally at risk from new borns to kindergarten year. The minister added, like similar facilities, the work done by the Penticton office is invaluable. “Child development centres really help the children get the best start in life and learn to cope with a disability if they have one but also to grow and develop,” said Cadieux. “It is also really important for families to know the support is there, to be able to talk to people who understand.

“It’s really about the sense that people get that there is light at the end of the tunnel.” The minister, who is in a wheelchair herself, added it is necessary to remember while it may be the individual who has the disability, it impacts everyone around them. “But as well as with the challenges, (there) are also the opportunities it presents to come together and build a sense of community, that’s welcoming,” she said. “The more we can do for children in the early years, even before they start school, we know pays off. “Give them (children) a really good start and they’re likely to have more success as they go into adulthood.” For her part, Willms was very happy with the opportunity to speak with the minister. “It was such a positive meeting,” she said. “We were just so excited to be able to showcase our services to that level of government. They just seemed so positive about what we are doing.” Willms added the challenges discussed included the historic and ongoing shortfall in operating costs and continuing the current integrated preschool program combining children with developmental disabilities and typically-developing kids. Educating the general public about the value of the service and the dividends it pays down the road in cost savings in the areas of schooling, health and social costs was also addressed. Joining Cadieux at the centre was Penticton MLA Dan Ashton, who is also a member of B.C.’s finance and government services committee.

Abbotsford man presumed drowned in Okanagan Lake Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Penticton emergency response search crews are on Okanagan Lake looking for a male that fell off a boat Wednesday evening. Deputy fire chief Dave Spalding said they were called to a marine rescue, along with Naramata Volunteer Fire Department, at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday evening. “A wakeboard boat had a fellow sitting on the bow and when they slowed the boat down he slid off and they didn’t realize it and had sped up again,” said Spalding. “Apparently he went under the boat and never resurfaced.” Next of kin have been notified but the man’s name has not

been released yet. RCMP confirmed this morning that the missing person is a 25-year-old male from Abbotsford. Spalding said the initial call came in as an overturned boat, but when the fire department arrived they found two boats, one assisting in the search and neither turned over. The boat operator confirmed to the search crew the male had gone under the boat and it wasn’t until that point the driver realized the male riding on the bow had fallen in. Tony Trovao, acting fire chief for the Naramata department, said they sent a crew out to the scene on Wednesday evening and searched for the man until about 10 p.m. when it was called off.

He said the search was initially targeted about one kilometre off the shore of Okanagan Lake Beach from the Penticton Lakeside Resort. Penticton Search and Rescue have been on the lake since 6:15 a.m. Thursday morning assisting with the grid search. “We are currently still on the lake, just south of 3 Mile and approximately in the middle of the lake searching the area around a sailing buoy,” said Dale Jorgensen, Penticton SAR search manager. “We have a search dog with us that has been trained and certified for searching for possible recovery in water,” RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Rick Dellebuur

said they are now considering this a recovery operation. “They are out there hoping for recovery in this unfortunate situation to give closure to the family,” he said. Dellebuur said the RCMP dive team will not be called in to assist in recovering the male because of the depth of where the man fell off the boat, instead they will be taking passes by helicopter and on the lake with their boat. He added there are several factors that will determine how long they will continue the search. “The water is still quite warm which will aid us. Once you get at that depth you are at the mercy of the lake,” said Dellebuur. “I have been involved in these things

Spalding said the incident is surprising, considering summer is coming to a close and they have had to deal with only minor incidents during the crush of the tourist season. “We had quite a few calls on the river

District gives green light to OK Falls bus service Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Public transit service between Okanagan Falls and Penticton could be in place by this time next year. The board of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen on Thursday voted to enter into an agreement with B.C. Transit to run the service. As proposed, the new route would run along Eastside Road between the two communities and connect in Penticton to the No. 10 service to Naramata. It’s expected the route will cost the RDOS $77,600 a year before revenue is subtracted. Tom Siddon, the RDOS director for the area, estimates the service will be accessible to 2,000 homes in Okanagan Falls and along the east side of Skaha Lake, which would equal a property tax levy of about $39 each. RDOS chief administrative officer Bill Newell cautioned, however, “we haven’t done the math,” and the first step in doing so will be creating a specific service area that will allow the RDOS to charge the right people.

During the consultation process, Siddon included a survey in the Skaha Matters newsletter, to which 131 people responded, only a slim majority of whom said they’d use transit service on either side of the lake. RDOS community services manager Mark Woods said the “best-case scenario” would see the new bus running in about a year’s time. After establishing the service area, the RDOS would then need to obtain voter assent and finalize a deal with B.C. Transit. Woods said the service would likely be handled by a small bus that’s able to deviate from its route at the request of customers who may need a pickup at their door. RDOS approval of the agreement with B.C. Transit was delayed this spring after Siddon asked for more time to consult with residents on the west side of Skaha Lake. As a result of those talks, he said, community members The regiOnAl disTriCT Of OkAnAgAn-similkAmeen voted in in Kaleden have agreed to work to find a way to connect favour of an agreement with B.C.

Air CAnAdA JAzz is cutting the midday flight to Vancouver from Penticton effective Oct. 27.

Air Canada cuts midday flight Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

This fall, Penticton will be back down to three Air Canada flights a day between Penticton and Vancouver. The addition of an extra Vancouver flight was something of a victory this spring, after months of lobbying both Westjet and Air Canada Jazz for both increased service to Vancouver and the addition of direct flights to Calgary. The noon flight has only been operating since April, but airport manager David Allen said that though the flight seemed to be popular, the move by Air Canada Jazz to reduce flights isn’t unexpected. “I think it came down to a winter schedule. They move their planes

around in winter. I have no reason to think it won’t come back next summer,” said Allen. “It went well from our perspective. “It had a lot of ridership on it. “I don’t know if it was up to Jazz’s expectations. I think it was fine.” Angela Mah, Air Canada spokesperson, issued a statement that the winter schedule between Penticton and Vancouver remains consistent with what was operated last winter: three daily flights operated with 50seat Dash 8 aircraft. “The timings have in fact been adjusted to improve the afternoon departure from Vancouver to Penticton from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m, reflecting comments from the Penticton community requesting a later

flight to enable a fuller business day for Penticton business travellers,” said Mah. The new schedule, with flights leaving Penticton at 6:10 a.m., 9:45 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. takes effect Oct. 27. Mah said they will be reviewing and finalizing next summer’s schedule in the coming months. In 2011, Penticton Airport served approximately 80,000 passengers; however, market analysis identified that the total air travel market is more than 210,000 annual passengers — sufficient to support an additional daily flight to Vancouver and two daily flights to Calgary. “A Calgary flight is the thing this airport needs,” said Allen, commenting on the ongoing demand for a direct flight.

Paying for parking isn’t usually considered a pleasurable experience, but new parking machines in downtown parking lots promise to make it a little quicker and easier to give up your money. As long as you remember your licence plate number, that is. Rather than issue a ticket, the new machines require users to input their license plate, which also closes a loophole that may have been costing the city tens of thousands in lost parking revenue. “This speeds up enforcement and it actually speeds up the experience for customers too, because they don’t have to print out a physical ticket, and then walk back to their car and make sure something is on their dash,” said Simone Blais, communications officer for the city. “They can just pay by plate at the machine, and once they are completed, just head on to whatever shops they are going to.” But while the machines still allow one hour free parking, users will no longer be able to go to the machine and repeat the process to get multiple free hours. When he introduced the new city parking strategy last December, Anthony Haddad, director of development services,

estimated that loophole cost the city up to $50,000 in 2012. The current machines, he told city council at the time, do not have the ability to restrict the vouchers to one time per user. About 140,000 free vouchers have been issued for 2012, up from 40,000 during the first few years of the program. “There has been no significant indicator that would contribute to this increase other than users constantly printing out the free vouchers,” Haddad explained. Blais said the new machines remove the loophole some were taking advantage of, making it fairer for all. “It’s not particularly an equitable system when you have that,” she said. Each vehicle can receive an hour of free parking every 12 hours. “If you purchase more than an hour of parking, the first hour will be free.” The new machines have been installed in all five city-owned lots downtown at a cost of about $15,000, according to Blais. “The old machines were at the end of their lifespan and were causing maintenance problems,” she said. “So they needed to be replaced no matter what. And a lot of municipalities are going towards technology like this. It’s more intuitive and offers more functionality for customers.”

A record number of nominations are expected for the Southern Interior Construction Association (SICA) Commercial Building Awards, the results of which will be announced on Oct. 17. The nominees are being judged by a three-person jury and SICA CEO Bill Everitt said the full list of nominees hasn’t been released. “I know we have a number of nominations that have come out from the industrial-commercialinstitutional side, but I don’t know which particular projects they are,” said Everitt. “That’s purposeful. We’re trying to keep all of that under the hat until the judges have a chance to review them against the set criteria.” In the past, Penticton and area have done well in the awards. Out of the 33 finalists last year — from 70 nominations — four local buildings made it onto the shortlist including the new Summerland RCMP detachment, Miradoro Restaurant at Tinhorn Creek Winery in Oliver as well as Canadian Helicopters School and the Shatford Centre in Penticton. Three got to take home bragging rights: Canadian Helicopters was honoured in the industrial category, Mirado in hospitality and the Shatford Centre for commercial renovation and restoration.

icton was a 90-year-old building, neglected and on the brink of demolition, with no future or clear vision in place. Now, it is a creativity centre and community gathering in the heart of Penticton and home to the Okanagan School of the Arts, read the judges’ comments. This is the fifth annual awards gala, which honours the best in commercial and industrial construction in the region, coordinated by Invest Northwest Publishing Ltd. This year, nominations have been extended to match the membership area covered by SICA – the Thompson-Okanagan region, as well as the East and West Kootenays. This means eligible properties can come from Kamloops throughout the Okanagan to Osoyoos, through to Cranbrook east to Fernie and north to Golden, including

Revelstoke and Salmon Arm. “The Southern Interior Construction Association, representing over 600 commercial, industrial and institutional builders is proud to sponsor the SICA Commercial Building Awards,” said Everitt. “Commercial construction often involves advanced architectural designs, environmentally sensitive materials and energy-efficient systems, and yet rarely gets recognized for its efforts. That, said Everitt, was one of the reasons the awards were founded five years ago. While the residential building community had a number of awards programs and ceremonies, there wasn’t a similar function to honour those building commercial and industrial projects. “We are building schools and hospitals and prisons and they are often tasked to come up with low environmental footprint, green building initiative … there are all sorts of requirements for innovative and best practices moving forward,” said Everitt. These awards, he said, now recognize the innovation and design work that goes into commercial buildings. This is also the first time, Everitt said, that the Southern Interior Construction Association is the title sponsor for the event. “We’re happy to be part of it. For us, it’s an opportunity to build our own brand and get that out there in front of everyone,” he said.

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.

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

Water board braces for potential invasion

They’re hardly bigger Than a dime, but quagga and zebra mussels are invasive species that local officials are working hard to prevent from showing up in the Okanagan.

California department of Fish and game photo

Western News Staff

An unexpected parental leave was partly to blame for a near-miss in the Shuswap that could have caused the depletion of fish species the likes of which agencies are working hard to prevent here in the Okanagan. The threat at Shuswap Lake in July 2012 appeared in the form of thumbnail-size quagga mussels attached to a boat arriving from the U.S. Quagga and zebra mussels multiply quickly and spread easily as stowaways in, and on, boats. After arriving from Europe in the 1980s, the invaders colonized the Great Lakes, where they caused billions of dollars in damage, and now inhabit lakes as far west as California. The mussels cause harm by attaching themselves to in-lake equipment, like dams

and water intakes, and washing up on beaches where their shells make walking difficult. They also strain nutrients from water, to the detriment of other aquatic life. A report prepared this year for the Okanagan Basin Water Board estimated the annual cost to taxpayers could hit $40 million in the first few years of an invasion here. To help sink the threat, the Okanagan Basin Water Board launched this summer’s Don’t Move A Mussel awareness campaign aimed at boaters, and is also funding a separate surveillance program. “We think it’s probably one of the most important issues to hit the lake in the last 40 years, so we think it’s important people know about it,” said OBWB executive director Anna Warwick Sears. The campaigns complement a larger B.C. government initiative that urges

boaters to clean, drain and dry their boats after removing them from the water to kill any tagalongs. The OBWB has also asked the federal government to establish inspection stations at B.C.’s international and interprovincial borders. “What really gets people’s attention is when you drive up to the border with a boat and they tell you that you can’t bring it through,” said Warwick Sears. “That’s probably the best form of education there is.” It might have also prevented the panic at Shuswap Lake that was revealed in documents obtained by the Western News under freedom of information legislation. On June 23, 2012, the primary contact for B.C.’s aquatic invasive species program received an email from counterparts in Idaho warning that a boat contaminated with mussels had just passed

through on its way north. The boat had last sailed in Lake Pleasant, Ariz., and was accompanied by paperwork that said it was decontaminated, although inspectors noted “many freshlooking mussels were still evident.” “We recommend B.C. have a good look at this boat before it is allowed to launch,” the email stated. Despite the advanced warning, the boat made it into Shuswap Lake, where it was moored for a week before conservation officers ordered its removal on July 3, 2012. That delay had officials worried. “Best case scenario here is that all the mussels were dead and we don’t have a problem,” Ted Down, the B.C. Environment Ministry’s manager of ecosystem protection, wrote in a July 3 email to colleagues. “Worst case would be missing the opportunity to contain viable mussels at the marina and having them become established in Shuswap, resulting in the decimation of fisheries stocks including key sockeye stocks.” Test results later revealed the mussels attached to the boat were dead. Environment Ministry spokesperson Dave Crebo said in a statement the 10-day lag between Idaho issuing the warning and B.C. taking action was due to a staffing issue. “The response protocol in place at the time of this incident followed the Columbia River Zebra and Quagga Mussel Rapid Response Plan,” Crebo said.

“However, the one provincial staff person tasked with responding unexpectedly had to depart on parental leave earlier than planned, resulting in a gap of a few days before the backfill staff person was in place.” NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said the incident revealed a gap in the

province’s defences against invasive species. “Just one person not being at their job could have put hundreds, if not thousands, of people out of work. That seems like a pretty thin line of defence,” he said. Since the near-miss in the Shuswap the, “response protocol has been improved by having additional

Better planning more action Everyone enjoys a break from their daily routine. Long weekends and vacations are always appreciated. So, who are we to begrudge our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, for wanting to prorogue parliament for a couple of months? The current parliamentary session, the 41st, has been running for 222 days. Not quite two-thirds of a year, but that’s a lot of question periods ducking and weaving questions and scandals like a punch-drunk boxer. But wait, those 222 days are actually spread over a two-year period. The 41st parliamentary session started in June 2011, following the general election, and was in session for 68 days, another 129 days in 2012 and another 75 days in 2013. No matter, Harper said he decided to prorogue the 41st parliamentary session because the Conservative government had achieved most of what it had set out to do in the last Speech from the Throne. Word is, Harper will ask the Governor General to call MPs back in October. B.C.’s Premier Christy Clark is also putting the provincial legislature on hold for a bit. If things were going well we could forgive our hard-working leaders a bit of extra time off. But things aren’t going well. Hopefully, Harper and Clark use their time off constructively, to come up with economic PENTICTON WESTERN action plans that actually benefit Canadians and British Columbians who are out of work. Given the current unemployment rate in Canada, 7.1 per cent, is only 0.01 per cent better than it was a year ago, and the unemployment rate in B.C. dropped by just 0.02 per cent over the last year, it is obvious we need better planning and more action.

Psychodrama in the Hamlet of the Patomac The psychodrama in Washington grows ever more bizarre. John Kerry, secretary of state, hyperventilates about the disasters that will ensue if the United States does not bomb Syria, but President Barack Obama, having said last year that the use of chemical weapons was a “red line” that Syria must not cross, persistently sabotages Kerry’s case by giving voice to his own sober second thoughts. Having gone right to the brink of action, Obama suddenly handed the decision to attack over to Congress. As the Hamlet of the Potomac confessed: “I could not honestly claim that the threat posed by (Syria’s President Bashar) al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians posed an imminent direct threat to the United States.” Well, of course not. The use of poison gas in a Middle Eastern civil war does not mean that North Korea or anybody else is going to use it on Americans. And how do you deter terrorist groups from using poison gas (if they have any) by bombing Syria? They don’t even have any territory that could be bombed. Obama should never have staked his presidency on the

Russia announced on Sept. 4 that it has suspended the delivery of S-300 missiles that Syria had ordered several years ago, and that no complete systems were yet in the country. But Syrian crews have already been trained on the system in Russia, and the weapons could be up and running quite fast if Moscow changes its mind. If we see that steps are taken that violate the existing international norms,” said Putin, “we shall think how we should act in the future, in particular regarding supplies of such sensitive weapons to certain regions of the world.” So if the Tomahawk missiles fly, the United States may find S-300 missiles taking them down. Then, in order to suppress Syria’s air defences, the US will have to commit manned aircraft to Syrian airspace, and some of them will get shot down by recently supplied Russian missiles – and we will be setting precedents far more dangerous and long-lasting than some local use of poison gas in a country torn by civil war.

Taking the byte out of a viral phone call Just thought I should put it out there again, although I’m sure many are aware of, but, at the same time, not everyone who has a computer knows how to recognize a telephone or internet scam when they encounter one. I received a call from a man who claimed he was calling from Microsoft and that my computer had been infected with a virus and will be shut down, unless I allow him remote access to my computer to get rid of the virus before it does me any harm. I knew it was a hoax when, after he finished his spiel about knowing my computer was infected, he followed with, “Do you have a computer, ma’am?” He was pretty quick in an attempt to cover his slip-up, but I wouldn’t let him get away with it. Rather, I played a bit of a game with him

Computer club boots up for new year

The Penticton Senior Computer Club is offering a full slate of classes beginning in October. Mac beginners and Intermediate level classes will continued to be taught. In keeping up with the electronic age there will be classes for iPods, iPads, and iPhones. Classes continue to be offered in genealogy, digital photos, PowerPoint, e-mail and Internet, Microsoft Word and beginners Windows 7 and 8, Wednesday Picmus (picture/history program) and Android tablet class continue on a on-going basis from 2 - 4 p.m. A new class has been added this season, which is Android Tablet for Beginners. This tablet is not a laptop, a note pad, a notebook, or a cellphone. It is a neat little item that can do almost as much as a laptop, but it is portable and fun to use. One can use it as an e-reader, searching the Internet or keeping in touch by e-mail while on a holiday or a cruise. Monday and Friday afternoon drop-in sessions continue throughout the year, except on holidays (Monday) and during the last half

He said for me to hold one moment while he conversed with his manager. He wasn’t too bright of an individual because he didn’t cover his mouthpiece or put it on mute and I could hear what was going on in the background. I could hear him physically removing his headpiece and passing it to someone else. I asked the manager for the same informa-

Do you guys have a time-machine, or something, and, if so, can I borrow it?” Then, the manager said something that sent me into an almost uncontrollable hysterical laughing episode. He says to me, “You’re a pretty stupid lady.” and hung up on me.

Health insurance hike poses a problem

I recently read that the Treasury Board of Canada is looking at changes to federal retiree health insurance that would double health insurance costs for federal retirees – a big problem for seniors on fixed incomes. If they proceed with the changes, some vulnerable seniors may be forced to make choices no one should have to make: between paying their health insurance premiums and paying for daily expenses, like food, medications, heat and rent. But the most disturbing thing about this is that the Treasury Board is reportedly considering breaking the promises it made to its now-retired employees. The Government of Canada made a promise to me: that I would

It’ll just end up causing you a heck of a lot of banking and credit card grief that no one can really afford in today’s financial crisis. Keep your guard up!

have a retirement pension and health care insurance as compensation for my service. I held up my part of this agreement during my career. I served Canada with honour and dedication. And now the government, after benefitting from the services I provided, is reportedly considering reneging on the promises it made to me and to tens of thousands of other federal retirees from the public service, Canadian Forces and the RCMP. Federal retirees are asking the Government of Canada to do the right thing: honour the promises it made to us. Shelve any plans that would be detrimental to the retirement and health care security of any Canadian, including the changes reportedly being considered for retired federal employees’ health insurance.

In a matter of only three hours they managed to raise nearly $3,000 working with owners John and Michelle Lee and members of the their staff. The Lee’s had approached the organization with the idea, pledging to donate all of the proceeds from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., if the group would help out. “I’d never been in a restaurant kitchen before and we were cooking and plating and getting the boxes ready for them to send out and the girls were waiting the tables, it was just a lot of fun,” said president Joanne Martin of the Peach City CFC chapter. “We were all really surprised at just how much money we raised in such a short time, even the owners were. “Michelle called after she counted the money and was just so excited.” The national organization is a nongovernment, not-forprofit agency which helps people in over 30 developing nations around the world.

The Penticton chapter of CFC has about 30 to 40 members, mostly seniors, and while not a high-profile agency, has done a lot during the past 18 years to make a difference in the lives of those in need. For that the president credits the assistance of the people who support their efforts through donations made at events like the one at Lee’s. “Our community is very, very generous,” said Martin. “The

I think it gives everyone a great feeling to be able to help those less fortunate.” She extended that appreciation to Lee’s, for their offer to help without being asked.

Fall and winter means it’s time to get centred I always have mixed feelings about the arrival of our Fall/Winter Recreation Guide as it signals the end of our wonderful summer but I do find that fall is such a great time to fall back into routines and find new ones to inspire and engage. The new, all-inone recreation guide has everything you need to find your activity. The Penticton Community Centre’s Fall 2013/Winter 2014 Recreation Guide has recreation programs for children, youth and adults plus schedules for fitness, pool, aquatic fitness, drop-in sports (for pickleball, badminton, senior volleyball, volleyball and basketball) as well as lots of new programs for anyone wanting to embrace their artistic side. Swimming lesson registration has started and busy parents can organize their family’s lessons until the end of March. “I really like being able to create a schedule for my kids,” says Recreation Manager and busy mom Lori Mullin. “And being able to plan ahead means I can create structure and routine for my family.” Swimming schedules, including December holiday and spring break, are also in the guide. And with lane swimming always available, there are lots of opportunities for water fun. For those that prefer frozen fun McLaren Arena public skating starts Sunday, Sept. 15 with skating 2 to 4 p.m. If you need practice, skating lessons start Monday, Sept. 23. Preschoolers, children, adults and minor hockey players can take their first steps on the ice or hone their skating skills with advanced lessons. But September is more than just building routines. September wouldn’t be September without the Community Centre’s Try It For Free programs. Along with everyone else we return to our regular schedules but then we kick it up a notch with a selection of free classes. Programs as diverse as Tai Chi, Watercolour Painting, Breathe and Stretch Yoga (and many

more) means you can try something new without making a financial commitment. The fitness room is also free until Sunday, Sept. 15. The try it Modern Burlesque is full but the actual class begins on Sept.25. Gymboree is free Sept. 14 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. for parents and their children 10 months - four years and hosted by Nikki and Lisa from Day Camps. It’s the perfect dropin program for parents

looking to burn up some of that unending kid energy in a safe and warm environment. Our attendants will bring out toys and playthings for a Gymborific good time. For information call the Community Centre at 250-490-2426 or visit www.penticton.ca/recguide to experience the recreation guide online. Bob Pope burns up his unending kid energy as Recreation Coordinator for the City of Penticton Community Centre.

Instructor EmIly Jalava will be teaching a very unique modern Burlesque class as part of the Penticton Parks and recreation fall and winter program schedule. For a list of the programs available, the brochure can be found at the community centre office or online. mark Brett/Western news Photo Illustration

Local wins CCMA award Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Just like the Alberta sky Jim Cressman use to gaze at and dream about his future while working on his parents’ cattle ranch, his career seems wide and limitless. Last week the Penticton man and president of Invictus Entertainment, accepted the Ron Sakamoto Talent Buyer or Promoter of the Year and Booking Agent of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards. “It was an amazing weekend for sure. To win it in really my first year of business solo, under the Invictus Entertainment Group banner, really meant a lot,” said Cressman, who has been nominated for the award five times, but this was the first under his own business. This award recognizes talent buyers or promoters who present and promote Canadian country artists in Canada. Cressman started Invictus Entertainment Group just over a year ago, the award only validates he is on the right path. The multi-faceted company includes booking services, management services and they are also promoters working with big Canadian and international acts to put together shows. Carrie Underwood, KISS, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Motley Crue and others have been brought in by Cressman by working with venue management like Global Spectrum at the South Okanagan

Events Centre. “Just this year in Canada my little company has done over 700 shows coast to coast. I am really proud of that,” he said. While it is great to book those internationally known acts, Cressman is also a big believer in homegrown Canadian talent. Invictus manages many bands that have come through Penticton including One More Girl, Charlie Major, George Canyon, Aaron Pritchett, Brett Kissel, Livy Jeanne, Victoria Banks, Ryan Laird, Jordan McIntosh and they book for Emerson Drive who kicked off the CCMA award show. “I think it matches in terms of ability anything out there. No matter how attractive the arena touring business is and the big show business is, I believe in lending a hand to develop and grow Canadian talent because I believe in what we have up here to offer,” said Cressman. While most in the entertainment business chose to live where the action is happening in big cities, Cressman and his wife, Kristie Marleau, made Penticton their home seven years ago. “Rather than being in Toronto, Vancouver, Nashville or Los Angeles we made a lifestyle choice and fortunately we have been able to prove that as long as you buckle down and work hard it doesn’t really matter where you live,” said Cressman. “You create great partnerships with the artists and the venues and work in a manner

that is transparent and honest as you can be. One of the reasons I believe we have been successful is because we have remained small and focused with the artist services.” Keeping a strong and close relationship with his clients is very important to Cressman, he is invested emotionally in their music and in the artist. He quite often entertains them in his hometown. “I don’t work for Penticton Tourism, but I really should because every artist I have had come out over the years to visit the area and sit down and have meetings or dinner are in love with the area and many have met with realtors looking to buy property here because they had no idea that the South Okanagan is as beautiful as it is,” said Cressman. While there are challenges to overcome in the business, Cressman said there are obvious cool perks too. “I am happy to say that is a long list. On the touring side it’s seeing an artist like Brad Paisley or Carrie Underwood playing a place like the SOEC and looking out into the audience and watch them get so excited, so interactive that an artist of that magnitude would come to their small town. Then seeing the artist who has 5,000 screaming fans singing back every lyric of every song they have ever put out. In both cases of Keith Urban and Brad Paisley this happened and they

came up to me after the show and said I want to do more places like this. This was amazing and why I do this.” Right now his company employs six people and they are about to grow. Invictus just launched a record label called Big Star Recordings and they are getting into the music publishing business. Their first signing was George Canyon, who recently released the song Slow Dance. It is the most added song in Canadian radio for Canyon in his career. Cressman is also growing their presence in the film and television world and was at the Toronto International Film Festival this past week. Several of his singing artists will be featured in a television film during the Christmas holiday season. The entrepreneur said there is no such thing as an overnight success story while speaking of the artists he works with. He can apply the same mantra to himself. “Everyone says in this business if you want to make it you have to believe in yourself. That is partially true,” he said. “More important than that, you need to surround yourself with people who believe in you because you are going to have moments when you lose faith in yourself and when that happens you need someone there to pick you up. I absolutely have had those moments and those people who helped me and I believe in paying that forward.”

SQUARE DANCERS Sharon Boggs and Ken Boyd at a recent jamboree held at the Seniors Drop-In Centre during the Penticton Peach Festival in August. The Penticton Squares dance club will be celebrating Square and Round Dance Awareness all month with free sessions and demonstrations.

Penticton Squares spin fitness and fun into dance Western News Staff

It’s a mental and physical workout and square dancing isn’t just for backyard barn hoedowns and country fairs anymore. “You simply walk to the beat of the music. Music like Haven’t Met You Yet, Moves Like Jagger and All Night Long put a little spring in your step. It’s so much fun,” said Diane Tucker who is a new dancer to the club. “Dancing for two hours is like walking eight kilometres, I’m glad I put this fitness program on my bucket list.” The Penticton Squares square and round dance club are enjoying the mix of the traditional form and revitalized recreational activity with the injection of contemporary music. It is why they are joining the provincial government in recognizing square and round dance week Sept. 15 to 21. The province and local dancers are encouraging everyone to get involved in the dance form that improves physical, mental and social health of young and old alike. “This type of dance is good for all ages. The music is so uplifting and the dancers are so friendly that they make me feel comfortable. On top of that, I made new friends,” said Penticton dancer Armida De Michelis. After taking three free lessons she was hooked, just like the thousands who once flocked to Penticton during Peachfest to stomp their feet on an outdoor floor at King’s Park. Square dancing and the Peach Festival have a history dating back to 1954 with the first jamboree taking place on a small outdoor wooden floor in Queen’s Park and 200 couples registered. In the years that followed thousands would register to dance at King’s Park on an

18,000 square foot floor. The jamboree is now a separate event, but still held the same weekend as Peach Festival, and took place at the Penticton Seniors Drop-In Centre. Jim and Vicky Kosowan admit their initial steps on the dance floor were challenging but the assistance they received from the outset made the introduction easy. “Thanks to angels (dance assistants) and the patient teacher, we learned them. They were very forgiving if we made errors,” said Vicky. “We enjoy the experience and the camaraderie very much and will continue. The more we dance, the more we enjoy it.” Now the Penticton couple are finding their reaction to the square dance call is becoming automatic. Round dancing is also part of the fun for the Penticton Squares. This is choreographed ballroom dancing where a cuer guides dancers through each step so there is no need to memorize routines and nobody leads. To celebrate the awareness week, the Penticton Squares will demonstrate today’ style of square dancing at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre on Sept. 21 at 3 p.m. They are also hosting an open house on Oct. 1 at the Seniors Drop-In Centre at 2965 South Main St. from 7 to 9 p.m. Three free Thursday dance sessions will follow on Oct. 3, 10 and 17 at the Shatford Centre from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Organizers invite everyone to attend any or all with no obligation or commitment. Additional sessions will follow by registration. For more information contact pentictonsquares@shaw.ca or by phone at 250-492-5856 or 250-492-3247.

EACH STEP IN HOPE...

For All Your Cycling Needs

Proud Supporter of the Terry Fox Run

Thank you to Terry Fox Run organizers, volunteers and participants for keeping the legacy of our Canadian hero alive.

MUNTZ STEREO 140-48 INDUSTRIAL AVENUE WEST 250-493-6611

Terry Fox was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma (bone cancer) in his right leg in 1977 and had his leg amputated 15 cm (six inches) above the knee. While in hospital, Terry was so overcome by the suffering of other cancer patients that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. He called his journey the Marathon of Hope. Terry’s Marathon of Hope took place in 1980 with the simple objective of informing Canadians of the importance of finding a cure for cancer. With fierce determination, he ran an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) every day for 143 days. Terry was forced to end his run on September 1, 1980 when the cancer spread to his lungs. By February 1, 1981, Terry’s dream of raising $1 for every Canadian was realized - the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope fund totaled $24.17 million. Terry died in June 1981. On May 26, 1988, The Terry Fox Run became a Trust, independent from the Canadian Cancer Society, and received tax-exempt charitable registration as a public foundation. In addition to our signature and long-standing National Terry Fox Run Day in September of each year, The Terry Fox Foundation is proud to include in its events

portfolio The National School Run Day. The Terry Fox Foundation is responsible for supporting close to $20 million in discovery based research each year in Canada - all monies raised outside Canada must be distributed to (a) an institute approved by the Foundation and its advisors or (b) remitted to Canada. The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) is a recipient of TFF funding for translational research. TFRI is an exciting new initiative whose goal is to translate rapidly today’s best science into better cancer treatment and diagnosis for all Canadians. The Institute will bring scientists and clinicians together across the country into a functionally integrated, geographically dispersed Institute with nodes in several provinces. The Foundation recognizes the duality of its mandate. Not only does it raise money for research, but it also continues to share the story of Terry Fox. The Terry Fox Foundation strives to maintain the heroic effort and integrity that Terry embodied. It is a grassroots organization that does not allow the Terry Fox name or likeness to be commercialized or conjoined with other worthy causes. To date, over $600 million has been raised worldwide for cancer research in Terry’s name.

What started as one man’s contribution to this struggle now touches the hearts of countless Canadians from coast to coast. This Sunday, September 15th, will mark the 32nd anniversary of the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope. His strength and courage inspired immense generosity within us as a society — a legacy that continues even now, 32 years later. In 1980 Terry Fox ran for 143 consecutive days to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer and on September 16 we ask you to become a part of his legacy by participating in our local event. As the country applauded the courageous battle of this young man 33years ago, we shall also applaud the efforts of millions of young Canadians who will be running, inline skating, walking and climbing. You, too, can contribute by organizing barbecues, challenges, garage sales, rock-a-thons and disco nights… It doesn’t matter how you contribute, as long as you get involved! We are closer than ever to reaching our objective of making cancer a distant memory. By getting involved, together we can raise millions of dollars that will go into the research that is bringing us ever closer to achieving this goal.

Art gallery hosts 2014 CHEVROLET CRUZES trio of openings Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

The Penticton Art Gallery will be buzzing with activity next weekend with opening receptions for three new exhibits. In the Main Gallery, the work of Canadian John Koerner will be featured in the exhibit The Hidden Side of Nature: A Centennial Celebration. Just over a week out from his 100th birthday he will be in Penticton for an artist walk and talk. “He is amazing and still painting, not every day but still actively painting,” said art gallery curator Paul Crawford. Koerner was born in Czechoslovakia on Sept. 29, 1913 and not long after settling in Canada in 1939 he began exhibiting his oil paintings and water colours. His work spans a century inspired by the outdoors of B.C., panorama’s and impressions of cities of his European youth and abstract impressions of landscapes. “If you think of the history he has lived, and that his family fled from Czechoslovakia it is just fascinating sitting and talking to him. We are very lucky to have him here. A lot of people don’t realize the history he was involved in from the 50s to developing

his own vision which are all formed by his own spiritual belief,” said Crawford. After retiring as a teacher at the University of B.C., Koerner bought a house with a view across Burrard Inlet to Point Atkinson which became the focus of the Lighthouse series which comprises today of over 115 works. This was followed by a number of other series including The Garden of Eden, The Pacific Gateway Series. Over the last 20 years his output has not wavered and he is celebrated as one of the forces behind the rise of west coast modernism and a uniquely west coast aesthetic. In the Project Room, Laura Widmer: The Character of Line will open on Sept. 20 with a walk and talk on Sept. 21 at 2 p.m. and Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. Printmaking and drawing are at the heart of Widmer’s art practice. Her larger-thanlife portraits, including lithographs, lino cuts and drawings, explore the character of specific individuals in an effort to convey a specific moment of personal connection with each of the chosen subjects. The third exhibit, the art gallery has partnered with the B.C. Schizophrenia Society to showcase work created in their art therapy program. Beyond Words: Art Therapy and Mental Health will be displayed in the Toni Onley Gallery starting Sept. 20.

Rowling pens a decent crime novel for adults

Heather Allen Armchair Book Club

JK Rowling was recently revealed to be the author of a new crime novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling. Like many, I wouldn’t have been tempted to read this book before her lawyer spilled the beans that she was behind the pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. After the magic of the Harry Potter series, I was disappointed by the unrelenting dreariness of Rowling’s first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy. With her second book, The Cuckoo’s Calling, the question on my mind was: Can Rowling write for adults after all? Fortunately, this crime novel feels very much like the Rowling I remembered from the Harry

Potter series. In fact, the success of her new book comes from the fact that, in a sense, crime writing isn’t that different from the riddles and mysteries taking place at Hogwarts. In The Cuckoo’s Calling, a supermodel falls from her apartment window. Almost instantly, paparazzi gather around the body, even though it’s the middle of a cold winter night. In a style reminiscent of Agatha Christie, Georges Simenon or even Earl Stanley Gardiner, each of the tenants’ whereabouts are described, and clues point in many directions. Even so, the police rule the death a suicide. The supermodel’s brother believes otherwise. For reasons initially unclear, the brother hires Cormoran Strike, a huge Hagrid-like detective (who has had one leg blown off in combat years earlier) to find out what really happened to his sister. Even though Strike is down on his luck, sleeping in his office on a camp cot and cooking on a hot plate, he’s reluctant to take on the case. In the end he can’t refuse the money and Strike, along with his office sidekick, begins the unlikely investigation.

Rowling’s writing style is recognizable, including its faults: continual use of adjectives, onedimensional descriptions of characters, and the jarring overuse of skin colour as a descriptor. At the same time, she is masterful at piecing together complex plot lines, creating imaginative scenes, and throwing in red herrings to make this a fine page turner. She will keep you guessing until the end. The Casual Vacancy demonstrated that writers are less suited to some genres than others. It’s great for readers that Rowling is now putting her energy into ones that she can master. Of course, who knows what other books she may have penned under pseudonyms? Apparently Rowling enjoyed the freedom of writing her crime book without the pressure that comes with being a literary super star. I, for one, would like to see more Cormoran Strike detective novels. Maybe the fact that she just successfully sued the lawyer who outed her as Robert Galbraith will motivate her, and give her more fuel for her great imagination. Heather Allen is a writer and reader living in Penticton.

Vees’ new Dalpe brings other skills Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

A three-assist effort during the opening weekend of the season gave Ben Dalpe B.C. Hockey League Player of the Week honours. With that, the Penticton Vees forward joked he had something on his big brother, Zac, who also played for the Vees. “It’s a cool accomplishment,” said Dalpe, who has experienced a hectic week that also included accepting a Division 1 National Collegiate Athletic Association scholarship with Clarkson University Golden Knights. Dalpe said he texted his brother, who is trying to earn a spot with the Carolina Hurricanes, to bug him about his POW recognition. “He just kind of laughed about it,” said Dalpe. What fans can look forward to when watching Dalpe is a dedicated player who works hard. “Yeah, I got the skill side and touch around the net, but I just always want to make the right play,” said Dalpe, who scored 22 goals and 38 assists in 49 games with the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the Central Canadian Junior Hockey League last season. “I want to win. Do anything to win. If the coach needs me to go out there and kill a penalty, win a big face-off, I want to be that guy.” Asked how he differs from Zac as a player, Dalpe said his brother is more of an all skill forward. “He’s a big body (6-1, 195 pounds). He’s got the hands and he’s got the shot,” said Dalpe. “He doesn’t have to work as hard in the corners as I do just because he’s so big. Guys kind of bounce off him. I think for me, I’m more gritty in the corners. I think its because I’m a smaller (5-10, 175 pounds guy). I have always taken pride in my game to be a little more grittier.” Dalpe credits, the Vees prep camp, training camp and exhibition season to helping him adjust. He’s feeling good so far about his play in the BCHL. He said it’s going to be different from the CCJHL, noting there is more depth around him. “Overall it’s been a pretty good fit so far,” said Dalpe. He’s enjoyed playing with captain Brad McClure and Ryan Gropp. “It’s been a treat so far. Those guys can do wonders with the puck. I just work hard and try to get those guys the puck,” said Dalpe, who wears 18 for the Vees. “Brad’s got the great shot. We are all pretty good skaters. Gropper’s got tremendous vision. He can also shoot the puck, too. Those guys are just really easy to play with.” When it came to choosing Clarkson University to continue his hockey career, Dalpe said he’d been talking to them for about a year. He has a good relationship with coach Casey Jones, who recruited Zac to Ohio

Yeah, I got the skill side and touch around the net, but I just always want to make the right play. — Ben Dalpe

State when Jones was an assistant coach there. “It was kind of an offer I couldn’t pass up,” said Dalpe. “It’s a great opportunity going into next year, they are losing three senior centremen. I think that was a big factor in my decision.” Dalpe looks forward to helping the Knights, which has a rich history, restore its success from the past which includes winning 10 ECAC regular season titles, five ECAC championship tournament titles and have made 20 NCAA tournament appearances (seven times making it to the Frozen Four). Dalpe will be joined by defenceman Chris Rygus. Dalpe said it’s awesome to have Rygus going with him and have Rygus as a roommate. “He’s a big player, smart player that always makes the right pass,” said Dalpe of Rygus, who is entering his fourth season of junior hockey. “He’s an enforcer out there and scares opponents.” Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson said their dedication is infectious. “Both Ben and Chris have worked extremely hard for this opportunity and will be outstanding additions to the Green Knight program,” he said in a team statement. Now, Dalpe is just focused on this weekend against the Trail Smoke Eaters, who they face back-to-back at Cominco Arena. Harbinson said they have a big task ahead of them. “To me they look like they have one of the strongest teams they have had in about three or four years,” said Harbinson. “I think it should be a real tough environment to go into their building Friday and Saturday. I think they’ve got really good depth up front. They have improved their goaltending immensely. They have compete level and skill. How tough it is to always play in their building.” “There’s no weak teams in the league at all. I don’t think any one team is going to run away with it, but there won’t be any teams left in the dust either,” said Smoke Eaters coach Bill Birks to the Trail Daily Times. “It’s actually good to play Pen twice this weekend. We watched some video and focused on what Penticton does and practiced that all week and hopefully we’ll get a good crowd in here on Friday night.”

PENTICTON VEES FORWARD Ben Dalpe creates problems for Hunter Miska during practice. After earning Player of the Week honours in the B.C. Hockey League, Dalpe secured his hockey future with a college scholarship to Clarkson University with teammate Chris Rygus.

Wrestling wins fight back into Olympics Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Alyssa Kroeker is very relieved wrestling has been reinstated by the International Olympic Committee. She was told by her father, Rob Kroeker, who coaches the Okanagan Similkameen Wrestling Club, and a couple teachers about Sunday’s announcement. “This is my dream to go to the Olympics,” said Alyssa, who is also pursuing an athletic scholarship and has competed provincially and represented B.C. in nationals. When news broke Feb. 12, 2013 that wrestling wasn’t going to be considered one of the core sports by the IOC, the impact was felt in Penticton. Tony Ramsay, coach of the Penticton Wrestling Club, which has students mainly from Pen High Secondary and other local schools, said it was sort of shocking. Rob initially felt it was a big mistake. He said it wasn’t a really well thought out decision. Wrestling Canada announced that the decision was reversed during a ratification vote by the IOC. The Wrestling Canada Lutte website reported that wrestling received 49 votes, with second place going to baseball/softball with 24 votes, squash with 22 votes. Fortyeight was the majority of votes needed for wrestling to re-enter the program. Ramsay said it’s wonderful news about the re-instatement.

“The wrestling community is very excited that it’s back in,” said Ramsay. “Definitely the fact that it’s still part of the Olympics, it gives kids a goal to shoot towards.” Rob said he’s relieved by the decision. “We’re excited that it’s in for sure,” said Rob. “People came

up to me who knew nothing about wrestling, knew that I was involved, their comment to me was, you know what … I just know it shouldn’t be kicked out of the Olympics because it’s one of the original sports.” Because of its history in the Olympics, Alyssa wasn’t too concerned about the sports’ fate.

The Wrestling Canada website states that along with being one of the sports of the ancient Olympiad in 708 B.C., wrestling was one of the main attractions for the first modern Olympics of 1896. Wrestling has remained a main event since since 1904. Those involved in the sport have made adaptations over

the decades. Greco-roman was the original Olympic discipline, but wrestling added freestyle in 1904 in order to gain traction in developing countries. In 2004, in response to the sport’s growing popularity among women, FILA announced the addition of women’s freestyle. Wrestling now has 177 federations on six continents and in 2012 a recordsetting 71 countries qualified for the Olympic Games. Twenty-nine countries earned medals, including Canada. Ramsay said when the decision was made to drop wrestling from the Olympics, it just didn’t make sense. “It’s a good decision to bring it back,” said Ramsay. “It’s one of those pure sports that many countries participate in. It doesn’t require a ton of money to be involved with the sport.” “We are ecstatic that the IOC Members have voted to keep wrestling in the Olympic programme in Buenos Aires in Argentina,” said president of Wrestling Canada Don Ryan. “We as a community have worked extremely hard in the last six months to be where we are today.” Ryan added that the vote of confidence “will continue to fuel the dreams of countless kids across the world, including Canada.” Wrestling started an intense effort to save its position on the Olympic programme and joined with seven other sports to have a chance to become an “additional sport” on the Olympic Programme for 2020 and 2024.

Users of the Kettle Valley Railway Trail will be happy that the trail between Naramata and Little Tunnel is soon going to be less of a challenge. The provincial government announced earlier this week that $100,000 will be pumped into the worldclass recreation destination. The project includes a new high-quality tread surface for a six-kilometre portion. The work is to take advantage of funding and resources available through this year’s provincial budget for recreation site and trail maintenance and improvements. Work is expected to start towards the end of the month. John Hawkings, provincial trail manager, said Naramata is an exceptional community for the KVR trail to pass through. “The community support for the trail, the wineries, the setting along the Okanagan Lake there, it’s just a spectacular opportunity,” he said. “We’re focused on trying to develop that opportunity in co-operation with the City of Penticton and the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen to provide a great trail linkage through Naramata to Penticton and into the South Okanagan.” Andrew Drouin, a committee member for the KVR Working Group, said he feels it’s a “good investment as far as tourism in the area.” Hawkings couldn’t comment on who would be doing the work as the project is being tendered. The tender closes Friday afternoon and the successful contractor is expected to be chosen early next week.

Hawkings said they get regular feedback from users who stated they found it challenging to use that area. Once they hit the trail that was resurfaced two years go, they It’s a good found it to be wonderful investment as to use. “It makes a big diffar as tourism in ference for cyclists,” said Hawkings. the area. “These improvements — Andrew Drouin will provide a safer and higher quality experience for residents and tourists using the KVR Trail - one of the most well-known rail trails in British Columbia and Canada,” said Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson. Penticton MLA Dan Ashton thanked Thomson for his commitment to one of the best used trails in the province. “The trail is an important piece of the South Okanagan,” said Ashton. “There are a number of people outside our area that utilize it.” A decision regarding motorized vehicle use of the trail in the Naramata area has not yet been made. The province will make a final decision regarding the Naramata Glenfir Trailhead to Little Tunnel after an assessment of the public safety and liability aspects of allowing continued highway vehicle use is complete.

Former Tiger learns from national championship play Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Brett Fleming’s eyes were opened up during the Baseball Canada midget under-18 championships in TroisRiverieres, Quebec. Fleming, now a former South Okanagan Minor Baseball Association Tiger, joined Team B.C. for the national championship Aug. 15 to 19 and discovered Canada has a lot of quality players. Being exposed to different pitchers also benefited him as the teams he and his teammates faced were very good. “I thought that I played pretty good. I think I could have helped contribute a little bit more, hit a bit better than I did,” said Fleming, who in four games batted .222 with two hits, two stolen bases and scored once. I was just coming out of a slump after provincials.” The only disappointing part of the championship for Fleming was B.C. placing seventh after defeating Manitoba 4-3 on Aug. 18. “It was just hard, there wasn’t much team chemistry on the field,” said Fleming. “The sticks really lacked.” Hoping for a top

four finish, things didn’t go B.C.’s way because of miscommunication and Fleming said they played just two exhibition games. In their opening game, Team B.C. lost to Trois-Rivieres 12-0. They were then edged by Alberta 5-4. On Aug. 16, they lost to Ontario

8-5 and shutout by Quebec 10-0 on Aug. 17. Fleming, who is now playing for Okanagan College in Kelowna, said he believes if they had more time to prepare, they could have earned better results. Fleming said their finish was disappointing because last year B.C. earned silver.

“For some reason when we got to the tournament, it was just really hard, nothing would really fall for us,” said Fleming, who drives to Kelowna everyday for baseball after classes at Penticton’s Okanagan College campus. “We’d always get robbed or just hit right to them.”

Back to basics for swimmers Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

The KISU swim club is going back to basics with their first swim meet five weeks away. Coach Tina Hoeben is making sure all the swimmers strokes and body position in the water are solid, while taking care of a few small details before training gets going. “Have building blocks in place,” said Hoeben. While Hoeben works on those key areas with the group, there are minor events for the swimmers to be ready for their host meet scheduled for Oct. 18 to 20. Among those will be to teach a detailed strategy for the 50-metre freestyle and get rid of the swimmers cobwebs. Two things excite Hoeben about the upcoming season. Their swim academy, which enters its second year, and the addition of coaches Theresa Zunich and Sue Logan. Last year the program started with 13 kids, but this year is full at 25. “Those kids are all excited to be out there. I’m excited to have them swimming in there. A big energy in the group,” said Hoeben. “I think that’s trickling down.” For the kids in the academy, one of the benefits is better pool times that allow them to come in at 2 p.m. It provides flexibility to be involved with school sports should they choose or get other things done. “Those kids that make a huge commitment to swimming, we’ve been able to adjust their timetables,” said Hoeben, adding that the swimmers receive a physical education credit. “It’s a great atmosphere to be in.” As for coaching, Zunich joined KISU from Kamloops

and also coached in Nova Scotia. She is working with the junior group. “She’s over qualified for that job,” said Hoeben. “It’s really nice to have someone who has had experience coaching the top end also now coaching the bottom end. They know all Theresa Zunich the skills that are important. Coaching all the skills we know we need to have.” “I’m really excited about it. It’s been a great team and I love Penticton and any kind of kids are great,” said Zunich, who is working six days a week on a one-year contract. “Tina offered me a position with the team and I snapped it up.” Zunich’s focus is helping the swimmers learn their strokes before they move on. She started on Monday and said their response to her has been fine. “They are lovely,” said Zunich. “We’ve already bonded. They are excited to be here.” Zunich said the main goal with the kids is to have them completing the 200 individual medley in under four minutes. Logan is working with the age group swimmers and Hoeben said she is overqualified for the position as well. “I’m really thrilled to have this very qualified staff,” said Hoeben. “I think she will be a great asset to our club.”

Free agent defenceman Barker skating with Vees Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Skating with the Penticton Vees has reminded free agent defenceman Cam Barker of his junior days. “Everyone is having fun,” said Barker, who played 72 games with the Cornwall Colts in the Central Junior Hockey League. Barker, who has played 310 NHL games with the Vancouver Canucks, Chicago Blackhawks, Minnesota Wild and Edmonton Oilers, lives in the area and is waiting to sign his next contract. For now, he feels lucky enough to join the Vees during practices at the South Okanagan Events Centre. “It’s good to be able to practice with a team rather than being out there by yourself or with a couple of guys,” said Barker, a first round pick, third overall by the Blackhawks in 2004. “Keep the hands going.” Barker, who has skated in the area all summer, has friends that helped him connect with the Vees to make it happen. He said skating with the Vees is a little bit different. “These guys are young. It’s great being around them,” said Barker, adding that the team looks good. “They are having a great time and are eager to learn. Obviously if you can help guys out, it’s a great thing.” Barker said the Vees defence looks good and

has something in common with Paul Stoykewych. They are both from Winnipeg. “We’re from the same neighbourhood so we talked a little bit,” said Barker. Stoykewych said it was pretty cool meeting Barker and skating alongside an NHL player. During their conversation about their neighborhood,

Stoykewych discovered that his gym teacher is Barker’s best friend. So far Stoykewych hasn’t asked Barker too much about playing defence. “I’m just kind of watching from afar. The guy works hard,” he said. “Does all the little things. He has made it and has played in the big leagues for a while. He knows what he’s doing.”

Stoykewych said he doesn’t intend to drill Barker with questions, just continue to watch him and pick up a few things. “They are looking good. They have had a couple of good practices here,” said Barker. “Working hard and hopefully that pays off this weekend for them.” Find full story at www.pentictonwesternnews.com.

PIB building bright economic future Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

A new bridge over the channel at Green Avenue is still some time away, but planning for both the bridge and the opportunities for economic development it will bring are moving ahead. According to PIB Chief Jonathan Kruger, the band has a conditional agreement in place with the province and will be starting an environmental assessment in the near future and a legal survey for road access as well as commissioning an architectural design for a three-lane bridge. “If the stars align, I am hoping that we can build a bridge next year, in 2014, but that’s wishful thinking right now,” said Kruger. But whether a bridge is completed in 2015 or later, a commercial development is already being planned for the locatee land —properties owned privately by band members on the PIB side of the channel. “We certainly support them in their business endeavours and local shopping so that we don’t have to go to Westbank or Kelowna for certain stores,” said Kruger. Diane Pugh, representing the Property Development Group, said they are in a pre-leasing stage right now for the proposed Channel Crossing development. “Developments take a long time to put together,” she said. “It’s not uncommon to be doing it all at the same time.” Right now, she continued, they are still looking for an anchor store for

the commercial development of about 250,000 square feet. Targeted uses include a hotel, a dollar store, arts and crafts, electronics, pet food, furniture, clothing and restaurants According to Pugh, there has been a fair amount of interest from people who want exposure to the highway traffic passing by on the Channel Parkway (Hwy. 97) While bridge-related developments are in the planning stages, the PIB has some $9 million of projects already on the go, and more on the way, showing

that the band’s long-range economic planning is starting to bear fruit. “It’s been really busy for the last five years but a lot of that negotiating and work is becoming a reality,” said Kruger. “I am really proud of the position that the Penticton Indian Band is in and the moves we made to put us in a better position.” Work has begun on the both the fish hatchery and the band’s new health building, but Kruger said there is another huge project that isn’t as visible, but will give the band control

of one of the Okanagan’s most valued resources, water. Once a $3 million dam project on Eneas Lake is finished, the Penticton Indian Band will be holding the biggest water license on a federal Indian reserve, in all of Canada, according to Kruger. “The dam was old and it was going to breach, so we had to replace it. The province and Aboriginal Affairs asked us to take over the dam and the water license,” said Kruger. “We’ve been pursuing the water license there

… it’s taken a lot of time and a lot of work and we’ve finally completed that.” These projects mean employment opportunities not only for band members but area contractors and workers as well. “It’s just good for everybody,” said Kruger. “Building a stronger region for everybody is a good thing.” Along with the projects that have already started, the PIB is continuing preparatory work for other projects, like the Arrowleaf residential development, now known as Skaha Hills due to trademark issues. “We’re proceeding quite well, we are working on a road and we are constructing the first phase,, getting the surveys and the lots set up,” said Kruger. And on top of the construction work, the PIB will again play host to the Aboriginal Business Match conference in 2014, which had a such a successful event in the South Okanagan this spring they decided to return. Not only did the PIB development corporation get to showcase the area and their opportunities, Kruger said $40 million worth of business deals were generated between the 140 businesses and 130 First Nations representatives from communities around B.C. “We shattered the record from the first year … they only created $2 million of deals, so we’ve created some huge success here,” said Kruger. “I am really proud to say we are helping First Nations communities move forward in business. And being self sustaining is important.”

Out of clouds of gas and dust - a star is born The astronomical community has been eagerly following a recent birth announcement. For the first time, we have been able to observe the birth of a new star. This discovery comes from having the right instrument and happening to be looking in the right direction at the right time. Stars live a lot longer than we do. Giant stars last a few million years before blowing up, middlesized stars like the Sun can last some 10 billion years or so, and dwarf stars can last much longer, possibly longer

than the expected life of the universe. Since we have only been doing astronomy for a few thousand years, we have not managed to observe any star over a meaningful part of its life cycle. We have learned what we have through looking at lots and lots of examples, of stars of many types and brightnesses, and with the help of physics and a lot of hard work, put together what we currently believe to be the life cycle of a star. Stars form from the collapse of clouds of dust and gas. When the temperature and density

in the core of the collapsing cloud get high enough, nuclear fusion starts up and the star starts to shine. The radiation from the newborn star blasts away the most of the remaining cloud material and as the cloud disperses the star becomes visible to us. During its life the star obtains energy by converting hydrogen into other elements. Eventually it starts to run out of fuel. What happens thereafter depends on how much cloud material the star collected before it lit up. High mass stars become hot, blue giants that radiate energy at

a tremendous rate and then, when they start to run out of fuel, blow themselves up in huge explosions known as supernovae. Less massive stars, like the Sun, swell up and sneeze off their

outer layers, leaving a hot core, devoid of fuel, known as a white dwarf star. Low-mass stars smoulder on more or less indefinitely. These sneezes and explosions advertise themselves well in the sky, so when they occur they soon get detected and become the target of many astronomical instruments. However, the beginning of a star is another issue altogether. We have found lots of clouds with stars forming inside them, clouds with young stars in them, and young stars that have blown their birth clouds away.

LEAFSOURCE

However, we had not been able to find a real newborn star, until a couple of weeks ago. A major reason for this discovery is having the right instrument. In this case it was a new radio telescope, located on the Atacama Plateau in Chile, and called ALMA, which is short for the Atacama Large Millimetre Array. It is a cluster of precision antennas that work together to produce high-quality images. At millimetre wavelengths, the Earth’s atmosphere is a problem, especially the water vapour it contains, hence the

location of the telescope on a high, dry plateau. What ALMA detected are jets of carbon monoxide being blasted away at between one and two million kilometres an hour and whirling clouds of material being hit by the radiation from the newborn star. This event is taking place about 1,400 light years away, in the constellation of Vela (a light year is the distance light travels in a year, which is just under 10,000,000,000,000 km). Vela (The Sails) is one of the constellations set up when the super-constellation of Argo Navis (the ship used by Jason and the Argonauts) was subdivided into more manageable star groupings. Like many other major new astronomical instruments ALMA is operated by an international consortium, of which Canada is a member. So far our contribution has included operation and management personnel and cutting edge radio telescope electronics and other equipment. Venus and Saturn lie low in the west after sunset. Jupiter rises about 2 a.m. and Mars about 4 a.m. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, Penticton, BC, V2A 6J9.
