West Kelowna council is pressing ahead with its plan for a new municipal hall in Westbank. On Tuesday, council voted unanimously to prepare a “prequalification” document, that would invite interested developers to come forward and, possibly, offer up land for a new 23,000-25,000-square-foot, two-storey building that the district’s consultant estimates would cost $6.5 million to build. Throw in another $2 million to buy the land and West Kelowna taxpayers could be looking at a 2.4 per cent increase ($40) on their annual property taxes to pay the building, say district finance department staff. The estimated $8.5 million total for the project would include $1 million which the district has Doug Findlater already set aside for the project. “I’m pleased with what I’m hearing,” said Mayor Doug Findlater following a presentation by project consultant Jonathan Huggert. “I feel it’s viable and affordable.” Findlater said the district could have decided to locate the new municipal hall in another area of West Kelowna, but felt it was incumbent on it to do something to help make the downtown Westbank area more viable “This is it,” he said. The Westbank Town Centre, as the district calls the area, has seen a drastic loss of business in recent years as large commercial and retail development has grown on the nearby Westbank First Nation reserve land. It also has had to deal with the issue of the Highway 97 couplet running through the area. The municipality recently gave up its effort to get rid of the couplet. In making its decision to proceed with the plan for a new municipal hall, council went with Huggert’s recommendation that the building be part of a comprehen-

The Central Okanagan United Way decided to apply its promotional slogan “Where Change Begins” to its fundraising campaign kick-off breakfast on Tuesday morning at the Delta Grand Hotel. Unlike past years, the campaign committee opted this year to post a fundraising target that, in recent years, has always exceeded the $1 million mark. Marla O’Brien, United Way executive director for Central Okanagan and South Okanagan/Similkameen, said the intent behind the campaign this year is to downplay the million-plus target. She says the feeling was it tended to overshadow the reality that all donations, big and small, count in helping support the 29 social service agencies in the Central Okanagan, and the efforts of the volunteers and staff of those agencies and the impact of the work they do in the community. “Sometimes it seems like we were getting lost in the big campaign fundraising number we were shooting for and not focusing on what a difference the United Way and the agencies we support makes in the community,” O’Brien said. Numerous representatives of those various agencies spoke briefly at the breakfast about the services they provide to

OPEN HOUSE…The public is invited to take part in the celebration planned to mark the opening of the $5.1 million downtown marina and public pier on Friday from 2 to 6 p.m. There will be live entertainment, prizes, a free barbecue for the first 500 people and free moorage during this weekend’s Culture Days activities. Following the open house festivities, from 6 to 10 p.m. the pier will remain open to participate in the inaugural Culture Crawl Kelowna, a street party along Bernard featuring artists, musicians, street performers and food trucks. Culture Crawl is part of Culture Days, an annual three-day national celebration promoting art and cultural events. “It’s a great opportunity to hold the open house just before Culture Days kicks off and to participate in the Culture Crawl as, right from its opening, the Downtown Marina will contribute to creating an active and festive atmosphere for residents and visitors,” said Gail Temple, director of development for Westcorp. “Since our marina will not begin its operations this season, we consider this opening a ‘soft’ one, focused mainly on the pier. We intend to have a celebratory party, perhaps the May long weekend next year, to kick off the boating season—a party to celebrate the true opening of the marina.” For this weekend and rest of this fall, moorage at the marina will be free.

Location of stuck truck led to discovery of victim’s body Cheryl Wierda CONTRIBUTOR

Two hours after Brittney Irving sent a text message to a marijuana broker, saying she would meet him in an hour, the man accused of killing her called his cousin to help pull him out of the bush not far from where Irving’s body was eventually located. Jason Labonte testified that Joelon Verma, who was driving another man’s truck, contacted him on April 6, 2010 and said that the truck was stuck in the bush and he needed help getting it out. Labonte called the truck owner— phone records show the call was placed at 3:12 p.m.—and the truck owner brought Verma’s truck to Labonte’s Rutland home. The man offered to help come along to pull out Verma, but Labonte declined. “He (Verma) told me to come up by myself,” said Labonte. Labonte, driving Verma’s truck, met Verma in an area off McCulloch Forest Service Road where they had previously gone hiking. “I saw Joey standing at the back of the truck. He was stuck in the snow,” said Labonte.

He then drove with officers to show them where he met Verma. When police returned to the location on April 26, they found Irving’s body not far from where Verma was said to have been stuck in the snow. A month later, police were still looking into Irving’s death and Labonte, who is a hunter, surrendered his firearms to the RCMP. Blackberry messages from May 25, 2010, show Labonte and Verma discussing the police being at Labonte’s home. “Not very happy ‘bout what I got dragged into,” wrote Labonte. “Bet not,” wrote Verma. “I got dragged into it too. But it’s all good, bro. Gotta do what they gotta do.” Some point after the messages, the cousins met at a car dealership. “I told him I was worried about him…scared for him,” said Labonte. “He said not to worry about it.” They hugged before parting, with Verma saying: “If he’s going down, everybody’s going down,” Labonte recalled. Soon after, messages between the cousins were less friendly. “I need to know what you’ve said to these guys,” Verma wrote in

I need to know what lawyer you will need.” Later in the conversation, Verma messaged that he was told by “an official at the gym to shut the f__ up.” “Bro, I didn’t do anything,” Labonte replied. “I know you didn’t do anything,” wrote Verma. “It’s what you said.” “I told you to keep your f__ing mouth shut.” Verma was arrested in connection with Irving’s death on June 25, 2010, and discussed his cousin talking to police with an undercover police officer who was placed in his cell, the court heard Tuesday. The court also heard from the man who sold Irving GHB on the day she disappeared, saying she was planning to go to rehab and was using the GHB “to come off OxyContin.” Earlier in the trial, the court heard from broker David Osborne, who testified Irving texted him around 1:15 p.m. on April 6 to say she would meet him in an hour. She never responded to texts he later sent her, wondering where she was. The trial continues.

Wine industry now a huge economic generator in valley Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

With the start of the 33rd annual Fall Okanagan Wine Festival just around the corner, a new report has been released that shows wine tourism has an economic impact of $140 million annually on the Okanagan Valley. A collaboration of the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society, the B.C. Wine Institute and the Okanagan School of Business at Okanagan College, the report was based on more than 1,000 interviews at member wineries and at wine festivals and found that there are more than 1,400 full-time jobs in tourism and related employment. Wine festivals generate $87 million in direct annual economic impact and $52 million in indirect economic impact, while net annual government revenue from wine tourism is $4 million. Interviews conducted as part of the survey revealed that destination wine tourists spend on average, $475 a trip to the Okanagan, and regional wine tourists spend $120 a visit, with two people

While here, they’ll have a taste not only of the wines produced in previous years, but of the grape harvest, which is well underway in the 9,800 acres of vineyard planted in the region. During the Oct. 4 to 14 fall wine festival this year, there are more than 150 events through the Okanagan and Similkameen, from wine and cheese pairings, to wine-paired dinners, receptions, vineyard lunches, art walks, music, grape stomps and theatre. For details, pick up a copy of the events guide wherever B.C. wines are sold, or go to: www.thewinefestivals.com.

W ne Tourism Matters Each year, over 800,000 tourists visit wineries, taste wines, buy wines, eat at winery restaurants and attend wine festivals in British Columbia. Arriving in search of the real and the local, Okanagan wine tourists generate $139 million in regional economic impact.

Role in fatal Connector crash leads to jail time for female driver Cheryl Wierda CONTRIBUTOR

A Kelowna woman involved in a fatal crash on the Connector more than two years ago has been sentenced to jail time. Amanda Rae Freeman, who is in her late 20s, was sentenced Tuesday in a Merritt courtroom to 15 months jail, as well as a year of pro-

bation and a three year driving ban. Media reports indicate Freeman was driving a car on the Okanagan Connector near Merritt on March 1, 2011 when she crossed the centre line and hit an oncoming semi. Rafael Heredia Cardenas, a 30-year-old father from Kelowna, was a passenger in Freeman’s vehicle and died as a result of the crash.

The two were co-workers at a construction site and had been drinking at a pub prior to the crash, media reports indicate. Freeman was convicted in May—after a three day trial—of dangerous driving causing the death of Heredia Cardenas and causing a death while having a blood alcohol level over the legal limit.

District defines medicinal marijuana potential sites Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

West Kelowna is the first municipality in the Okanagan to tackle the controversial issue of identifying where it wants medicinal marijuana growing operations to be located in future. The move came in light of announced federal government changes to the medical marijuana growing program that currently allows only

licenced individuals to grow pot for medical purposes in their homes as well as in other approved locations. But under new federal rules, Ottawa will stop issuing individuals with licences to produce marijuana for medical purposes Oct. 1 and, as of March 31, 2014, the cultivation of medical marijuana will no longer be permitted in private dwellings. Licences will now only go to companies.

On Tuesday, West Kelowna council voted 5-2 to only allow licensed grow operations in industrial areas in the future. “I’m concerned about security,” said Coun. Bryden Winsby, who moved the motion that council supported. “My preference is to keep it in a building where it can be secure.” But while the council wants licenced growers to only operate out of buildings in industrial

areas, the province’s Agricultural Land Commission has said licenced marijuana growing is a recognized farm use and, as such, would be allowed in ALR land. The ALC’s stance concerned council as it debated Winsby’s motion, with several councillors saying they felt the ALC’s position will trump the district’s desire to see it kept off farm land. “We may be setting ourselves up for a con-

frontation with the ALC over this,” warned Mayor Doug Findlater, who supported Winsby’s motion. Because council’s move will have to go to a public hearing as it requires a zoning amendment, West Kelowna residents will get to weigh in on the issue. “That will be quite a public hearing,” predicted Coun. Duane Ophus. No date has been set for the public hearing as staff must first prepare

draft regulations for the zoning change. A staff report prepared for council said while the City of Kamloops has moved ahead with a similar zoning amendment to restrict medical marijuana growing operation to industrial areas there, and Summerland has said it considers medical marijuana growing both an industrial and an agriculture use, none of five other major Okanagan cities—Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon, Lake Country or Peachland—have made, or are in the process of making, amendments to their existing zoning bylaws. West Kelowna staff said there are currently four licenced medical marijuana operations in the district, three on industrial-zoned land and the fourth on land zoned com-

mercial. Only councillors Rick de Jong and David Knowles voted against Winsby’s motion, with de Jong saying he felt it was premature for council to deal it and Knowles saying getting into a fight with the ALC would be a “waste of time.” But Findlater said he believed council was doing what its collective gut was telling it to do. “This is pioneering,” he said. “There is no template for how to manage this issue.” He added the key will be to make sure the pot producers do not bother others around them and that’s why he feels a secure and proper facility in an industrial location is the best place for commercial medical marijuana production.

New municipal hall tied into larger development concept Project from A1

sive development that could see other “complementary” development on the same site. While the hall and the land it would sit on would be owned by the municipality, Huggert said it could be part of a larger development rather than a structure standing on its own. Huggert’s report suggests the district needs a building with at least 23,000-square feet of space on a twoacre property. The building, however, could be larger if Interior Health comes on board and takes some of the space. IHA has indicated it wants to expand in the Westbank area. The district’s chief administrative officer Jason Johnson said he has a meeting planned with IHA officials Oct. 15 to discuss the possibility of the health authority becoming part of the project. In a preliminary time-line presented by Huggert, the investigation into a potential partnership with IHA and preparing and issuing the prequalification document could take place as early as next month, with a December deadline for potential builders to respond. The responses would then be evaluated in January, with a report back to council in February. A formal request for proposals could be issued in March 2014 to a shortlist of three proponents, with a winner recommended to council in May. Coun. Bryden Winsby questioned the quick timeframe but Huggert said it is doable as it is based on a similar timeframe for a similar building recently embarked on by the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District and one used by Merritt when it built its city hall several years ago. If the district is successful in building a new municipal hall, it would mean the current municipal offices at the Mt. Boucherie Recreation Complex would return to their original, intended use—recreation. The district is putting aside $85,000 per year to help cover the cost of that work. Where in Westbank the new hall would be located, is still in question. But Huggert said his phone has been “ringing off the hook” since he was hired, with calls from landowners offering potential property for a municipal building. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Multiple roundabouts, six lanes and a new road behind the Comfort Inn mark the highlights of the $50-million highway upgrade lauded by area MLAs as a way to expedite traffic and reduce traffic jams. “This work will improve traffic flow at the northern entrance to the city, and make for more efficient and safer connections to UBCO, Quail Ridge, Rutland, Glenmore, Ellison, Lake Country and beyond for motorists, cyclists and transit users,” said MLA Norm Letnick when the project was announced at

the end of March. Named as one of the top five priority infrastructure projects in the region, it served as good election fodder as the Christy Clark Liberals made their run into last spring’s elections, Liberal MLAs Steve Thompson, Norm Letnick and Ben Stewart among them. All three were elected to office, though the new premier would take on Stewart’s riding. In the meantime, Ministry of Transportation staff have been hard at work figuring out how to move the 60,000 drivers who travel through the bottleneck on this section of highway in the most efficient way possible.

Safety a shared responsibility

T

he death of Anita Lewis, who died July 14 after being struck by a northbound train on White Rock’s waterfront, is a lamentable tragedy—and no amount of argument on what should be done about safety precautions can minimize that. It’s obvious the majority of people will wish to do everything possible to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future. For some, there can’t be too many safety measures in place to protect the public.

But so long as people live cheek-by-jowl with a railway—a matter not of whim, but historic fact for many B.C. communities—care must continue to be taken. And White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin, in his resistance to a Transport Canada call for more gates, bells, lights and whistles, is right to suggest that there is a limit to what can be done by a city to protect the public. The circumstances of Lewis’ death (she was jogging, reportedly with earphones on) seem to

point to a classic misjudgement —an assumption on the part of many pedestrians that the sheer size of a train makes it visible and easy to avoid. The forgotten factor is that trains travel at a rate in which they can reach a crossing deceptively fast, and the difference between not knowing and suddenly becoming aware one is approaching can be a matter of a split second. But, as Baldwin has pointed out, not even the most aggressive campaign to protect the public

can remove all danger from the scenario. It seems that, in addressing the problem, we must strike a balance between civic diligence and a reasonable expectation of individual caution. To suggest—as Baldwin has done—that individuals, as well as civic government, bear some responsibility for their own and others’ safety is not an expression of callous indifference. It’s a matter of common sense.

Gluten-reduced diet offering relief to stomach disorders

A

Kelowna dietician says breaking up with bread might be hard to do, but it might lead to digestive happiness for those who suffer from upset stomachs. Tristaca Curley says the topic of gluten is one that is catching on with Canadians, especially those dealing with digestive issues with no apparent solutions. Curley says according to new research, about 4.3 million Canadians have gone gluten-free or reduced the gluten intake in their diets. Of that figure, that amounts to about 17 per cent of British Columbians who have made the switch. Curley says of those surveyed in the Canadian Attitudes to Gluten-Free

Study, 81 per cent reported that curbing their gluten food intake feel happier and more energetic, and also report improved gastrointestinal health. Curley says the shocking rise in diagnosed celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that calls for a total anti-gluten diet, is almost four times higher than occurrence than it was 50 years ago. Curley says that is almost unheard of for an autoimmune disease. So why is gluten, which is a byproduct derived from grain, barley

and rye, become such a problem and how is the medical community responding to it? Curley says more research needs to be done on why gluBarry ten is being blamed Gerding for people’s digestive health concerns, but she says one suggestion points to the extent to which the food industry uses it. “We eat more processed foods today than we used to, and all those products have gluten in them because it is an inexpensive binding agent for those kinds of products,” Curley says. “More research needs to be done

EDITOR’S NOTE

on that, however, as well as what is different about the grain, barley and rye that is grown today compared to 50 years go.” Curley says gluten sensitivity is becoming a more common trait for many of her clients, who are looking for answers as to why their stomachs are upset and energy level is dissipated. “There is a definite diagnosis procedure for people with celiac disease, but blaming gluten for all upset stomach symptoms is something doctors are leery of doing because of the lack of research,” Curley said. “Those same symptoms can be attributable to other ailments as well.” Besides her clients, Curley says

grocery store shelves are becoming stocked with more gluten-free products, a reaction to what consumers want and likely a growing awareness about the downsides of gluten. “There are alternative to foods with gluten people can eat, starting with vegetables and fruits,” Curley said, although she acknowledges that gluten-laced foods remain a food staple characteristic. “One of the odd things about this is gluten isn’t an issue in Europe to the extent it is in North America, but more research needs to be done to find the answer to the question of why,” she added. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

Kel’yawn’a needs projects like Kelowna Mountain To the editor: This letter is in repsonse to the article about the Kelowna Mountain project in the Sept. 20 Capital News (Precarious Perch). The City of Kelowna, Province of B.C., Regional District of the Central Okanagan and residents should consider themselves extremely lucky to have the Kelowna Mountain project here. Mr. Consiglio could have easily built this in any other North American city, but he chose Kelowna. Once Kelowna Mountain is completed

there will be a huge economic spin-off for Kelowna businesses especially those in the access corridors to the resort. The project has and will continue to create hundreds of local jobs, building, maintaining and servicing the resort. I don’t see the province, city or RDCO doing much to create jobs these days. Best of all, the project isn’t costing taxpayers anything, unlike the over-priced public washroom in City Park, the poorly designed public dock (just ask the charter boat owners) and the ri-

diculously expensive remake of Bernard Avenue. Instead of putting roadblocks in the way for Mr. Consiglio’s project, the aforementioned should be doing everything possible to assist him and get the project completed ASAP. KeloYAWNa needs more people with the foresight and optimism of Mr. Consiglio and his team to make Kelowna into a truly year round resort destination. Dale Lockhart, Kelowna

To the editor: Re: Council Endorses Development for ALR Land, Sept. 24 Capital News.   I can see the conflict in the future: …the affected farmer verses the (Bennett family owned) McIntosh Properties business. If (the farmer) finds the correct lawyer, the city and McIntosh will be sued for interfering in his farming. Remember how the city stole creek-side property from Cliff Serwa and two other neighbours and the cost to city taxpayers was in the $3 million + range and the neighbours won. When McIntosh tries to sell the apartments or rent them out, they must disclose to the tenants that (there may be) spray, noise and smell that may come drifting in their open windows in the future. (The farmer) has been backed into a corner and he will fight for his livelihood. How Kelowna city council decided on this in favour of McIntosh leaves one to think of Mr. Mulroney—did his disease drift into Kelowna on the wind? One councillor was on the radio saying that there is no viable farming for the property since there is no access. Will there be access for the developer? Yes there will be at least two more sets of lights on Springfield. So, a developer can purchase farm land (in the ALR) and let it lay in weed

infestation, pour snow embedded with road salt on top of the top soil, then later say, “the land is not suitable for farming.” Then, the developer obtains instant permission to develop the land for another 200,000 sq. ft. of shopping to add to the already huge shopping developments in Kelowna. There are two mega churches and Fortis offices already close to the farm land and it is a wonder that they were also allowed to build on ALR land. With regards to development, I don’t believe many in Kelowna are anti-development—just not on ALR land. Think into the future when Mexico and California and Chile cannot deliver our cheap groceries. There are thousands of acres of land not in the ALR and not suitable for farming, so why not use that and leave the farm land alone? My family came to Kelowna in 1963 and soon after, the Bennett family bought the huge pear orchard where Orchard Park is paved over. This was prime farm land but the development went ahead. At that time the land was just outside the city limits. This new development affected the downtown severely by taking business away from the merchants. Orchard Park was refused a sewer and water connection by the city fathers for some years. The old city fathers did not like the competition. It is not the developer’s fault,

they will go as far as the city allows. Kelowna in the future will be several kilometers of shopping and apartments and highrises and the tourists driving through town will not notice any of the natural beauty—just the concrete and pavement and business. I assume that the official city planning does not allow for any farming to remain. It has been said that the ALR is just a “holding system for developers since they already own much of the strategic land in the ALR.” Ask city council which farm land is next. Much farm land has already been lost further south along Benvoulin Road, etc. Maybe the city should treat this the same as what happened to Rattle Snake Island and just take (this farmer’s) farm away from him, which happened about 25 years ago. This drove the owner of Rattle Snake Island mad and he was in conflict with the Canadian Embassy overseas. Yes, Kelowna, history may repeat itself in Kelowna. Who is in charge of city hall? Will the tax payers be willing to pay for another long court case and legal fees and lawsuit? I can see it coming and (the farmer) will win. Maybe pig farming is in his future—I like pigs. I have some property next to the pig farm, would you like to rent it?  Jorgen Hansen, Kelowna

West Kelowna spending needs priorities set To the editor: When dealing with our household budget, we need to take care of the basic necessities that ensure the safe running of our homes. Our priorities seem slightly skewed. There was plenty of money to “floodlight” part of the Glenrosa Road for the protection of deer crossing the road, just North of Gorman’s Mill.   I am sure that Brown Road has some needs that come under the “safety” category but there are other more urgent streets

in need. For example, along the Old Okanagan Highway, from Butt Road to Reece Road, there is almost no street lighting. The lighting that is there is old, inefficient and needs replacing. That part of the highway is a total hazard at night. It is a black hole, especially as oncoming vehicles with their headlights on effectively “blind” drivers to the existence of foot traffic and cyclists. Time and time again I have driven along that portion of the road, al-

ways cognisant of its dangers and wondering why nothing has been done to solve the problem.  A few years ago, a pedestrian was killed in poor light conditions. Last night the only sign of an approaching cyclist was the reflectors on the bike pedals (Yes, I know that safety lights and helmets should be worn by cyclists as they can see vehicles, but we can’t see them) District of West Kelowna, please take note. Winter approaches and it is time to do something about the lighting on The

Hunter makes an apology To the editor: I am a hunter in the Okanagan and I was out hunting, shooting at a four-point mule deer, but I shot a three-point instead. I did not call it in. I left it. I was reported.

I was lucky, I received fines and did not lose my gun. My fines were $1,150. If I had reported it, I would have got a small fine. The conservation officers will treat you fair if

you call it in and then the meat will go to someone who needs it. I apologize to all the hunters in the Okanagan. Barry Pattie, Kelowna

Old Okanagan Highway before we have another injury or fatality. There is an existing electricity supply to the old lights that could be used to upgrade the system. Surely it’s not rocket science. As the Old Okanagan Highway section in question, forms a boundary

between district land and WFN land, perhaps the two governing bodies could cooperavte to rectify this problem. Let’s get the house work done before we play with “beautifying projects” C. Hodgkinson, West Kelowna

Kokanee embark on arduous annual odyssey Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

With a flip of his scarlet tail he launched himself out of the boiling water below the low waterfall and landed with a smack in the still pool above. He gave himself a shake, fanned his tail for a minute or so, then slowly continued his odyssey upstream. Behind him, a fellow traveller, also scarlet red with an upcurved green snout, made an attempt at jumping over the falls, but fell back and was carried several yards downstream by the flow of the water. Eventually he slowed, then reversed and began to work his way back upstream, joined by other spawning kokanee who were on their way from Okanagan Lake up Mission Creek to lay their

for kokanee in Okanagan Lake in 1995 to conserve stocks, because of a crash in their populations. Although efforts to pursue the action plan came to a halt half-way through, a number of changes had been made by then to balance lake levels and improve habitat, as well as reduce mysis populations, and kokanee numbers had gone up enough that a recreational fishery was reopened last year. However, early indications are that this may not be a stellar year for the beleaguered fish. Provincial stock assessment biologist for this region, Paul Askey, says high water temperatures likely stalled some returning kokanee from entering streams as early as in some years, but there is more water than some years in Mission Creek

(the largest single producer of stream spawning kokanee for Okanagan Lake), which helps to keep water temperatures cooler and improves habitat for spawners. This year, he says there appear to be more kokanee returning to the side-channel built for spawning kokanee in 1988, than to the main stem of the creek, perhaps for the first time since it was constructed. In the past four years, there have been an average of 20,000 returning, although 2009 was a low year, with fewer than 19,000 returning to streams and 140,000 to spawn on shore. Because that would have been the year this year’s spawners were eggs, it means there’s little likelihood of a large run this year. It will be another month or so before this year’s shore spawning kokanee begin to head to the stretch of shore where they were born, so Askey had no numbers yet for them. He said he has heard anglers have been catch-

A counting fence has been erected in Middle Vernon Creek to monitor the numbers of kokanee returning from Wood Lake this fall, after a crash in their numbers in 2011 that resulted in a ban on fishing for kokanee in that lake, although there was a six-week opening this summer. Members of the Oceola Fish and Game Club are helping with that count during the day while contractors continue the task overnight, he said. He’s optimistic things should improve for Wood Lake anglers by 2016. Wood Lake is a nutri-

ent-rich little lake, which makes it good fish habitat, but Askey explains it overdid it in 2011 and the decomposing algae ate all the oxygen in the lake, leaving little for fish. Because kokanee are entering Okanagan streams for their annual migration back to the site of their birth, interpretive programs are offered Saturdays and Sundays at both Hardy Falls Regional Park in Peachland and Mission Creek Regional Park in Kelowna by the Central Okanagan Regional District. Parks interpreters will be at both parks from noon to 4 p.m. this weekend. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

▼ GARDENING

Serenity Gardens volunteers are gardening angels F ive years ago our wonderful Hospice House on Ethel Street opened. This was not the first time hospice had a home; in about 2000 the organization found a home at Cottonwoods where palliative care was lovingly and respectfully provided for several years prior to the efforts of many to build a permanent Hospice House. During that time, I was honoured to be a part of creating the Serenity Gardens adjacent to the unit at Cottonwoods. Having just lost my younger brother the previous year and my dad six months later, I had a personal motive to make it happen. Even my mom got in-

ever, when the new Hospice House was completed in 2008, the need for their services was transferred to the new gardens created there. Fortunately, there is a new group lovingly taking care of the original Serenity Gardens. I am so thankful that as these gardens are so much appreciated by both the patients of Cottonwoods and staff. In fact, this year the gardens have received an award from the Communities in Bloom Committee for the Green Thumb award for Best Community Project for 2013. Congratulations for your efforts everyone. Well done! The move to the new Hospice Gardens was challenging because of

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett volved as the “straw boss” as she called herself. In order to make the garden successful we needed a volunteer group and several people got involved. The group was spearheaded by Judy Bell, a master gardener. With her guidance, energy and organizational skills the Serenity Gardens came to fruition. The maintenance was carried on by these wonderful volunteers, how-

the sheer size of the gardens as well as the process of familiarizing the group with all the new plants, of which there are many. Judy Bell and her crew did a splendid job from day one and the gardens continue to be a place of beauty and quiet serenity for the patents and their visitors. I know first-hand what the Hospice House and the gardens mean to folk who are at the end of life and their friends and family. My dear and best friend Charlie Faulkner spent his last few weeks at Hospice House and he and all of us appreci-

ated everything about it through our journey. From the staff and volunteers, who as Charlie himself said were “Charlie’s Angels,” to the musicians and entertainers who gave of their time to bring joy into the lives of the residents and visitors, I can’t say enough good things to do it justice. What goes on in Hospice House is just plain magical, but what goes on outside in the beautiful gardens is the icing on the cake. Making the icing are the volunteers that come every Wednesday morning to do some weeding, mulching transplanting, pruning to just hang

out with fellow volunteers and gardeners chatting about their efforts and learning from one another. Do you think you would be interested in helping out as a volunteer gardener? It may be the best thing you can do for all involved and it would sure be appreciated.

Cougar sightings at Kelowna park Warning signs have been posted advising visitors to a section of Scenic Canyon Regional Park about recent cougar activity in the area. The Regional District of Central Okanagan says one resident near the Field Road parking lot saw the cougar on their acreage on Sunday.  On Tuesday, two separate sightings were reported to regional parks staff by park visitors traveling in the KLO Creek corridor between McCulloch Road, Field Road and Mission Creek. “While our staff has not seen evidence of the cougar, we’re taking these reports very seriously and are continuing to monitor the situation,” said RDCO communications officer Bruce Smith. “We’ve advised the Conservation Officer Service about this activity and have posted warning signs

to let people know of these cougar sightings in this area of Scenic Canyon Regional Park, below the Gallagher’s Canyon neighbourhood.” The Ministry of Environment’s Safety Guide to Cougars advises that while human conflicts with these large cats are extremely rare and an attack is highly unlikely, it pays to be prepared especially when in a natural setting, like the Scenic Canyon Regional Park corridor.  “The Safety Guide recommends people should travel in groups of two or more and that you make enough noise so that you don’t surprise a cougar,” Smith said. “Carry a sturdy walking stick that can be used as a weapon if necessary and keep children and pets close at hand and under control.  “Visitors to our Regional Parks must have their dog on a leash at all

times and must stay on designated trails.  “Finally, the guide says people should watch for cougar tracks and signs and remember that cougars are unpredictable.  “If you should encounter a cougar, stay calm, talk to it in a confident voice, pick up all children off the ground and never turn your back on the cougar.  “Instead, back away slowly, remaining upright and do all you can to make yourself look larger, and always give a cougar an avenue of escape.” If you observe a cougar or bear within Scenic Canyon Regional Park or other regional park please contact the regional parks services office at 250-469-6232 and the Conservation Officer Service at 1-877952-7277.

This October the thrift store had planned on celebrating the anniversary of 10 years in business. Leboe says they still hope to carry out that celebration, if a new space can be found soon. The need to move has been stressful for staff and will be disappointing to clients and customers who have benefited from the store, she added.

Kelowna campus to host 50th anniversary celebration

Friday will mark a special anniversary in the history of Okanagan College. The Kelowna campus will host a 50th anniversary celebration to mark five decades of providing education and training to the people of our region. The B.C. Vocational School opened its doors

in Kelowna on Sept. 28, 1963, with help from then premier of British Columbia, W.A.C. Bennett. In the five decades since then, through amalgamations, growth, development and constantchange, the institution has delivered valuable training to tens of thousands of students and helped com-

munities throughout the region with economic, social and cultural development. Okanagan College wants to celebrate and honour its historic past with the people who have helped make it all possible. The college is reaching out to former students

and employees of the B.C. Vocational School, Okanagan College and Okanagan University College. “We know our former students and friends have spread throughout the world and we’re inviting them home to the Okanagan for a fun, informal party we’re planning on Sept. 27, 2013,” stated an

Okanagan College press release. “We’re also asking them to connect with us electronically to relate stories from their time at Okanagan College, and to nominate those people who have made a difference over our five decades of quality training and education.

The annivesary celebration on Friday takes place from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Kelowna campus courtyard. It promises to be an opportunity to catch up with friends, colleagues, teachers, administrators, community partners and students. During our celebra-

tion, the college will also announce the 50 people cited for making a difference in the life of the college. Those 50 people acknowledged will have been chosen by an ad hoc committee of current and former employees of Okanagan College and Okanagan University College. For Ryan Donn, a 2003 graduate of OUC and Young Alumni Award recipient (see accompanying graphic), gaining a human service worker diploma qualifying him to work with disabled people changed his life. “Back then, it was a 10-month program,” Donn recalled. “I had the choice to carry on to university and perhaps get a degree in social work but I really wanted to work where I could directly help people at a grassroots level.” After gaining his diploma, Donn went to work for the Central Okanagan School District for six years working with disabled students. Donn has earned considerable public fanfare in recent years for his interest in music as a singer and producer, and for his work in the public relations field for local events. But Donn said the basis for all those activities started with his education received at Okanagan College. He says looking at the growth of the college in the years since he left has been quite staggering. “University is not for everyone so the college has and continues to offer a great opportunity for people to use the skills they have learned in life and apply them to a potential career,” Donn said. “I think it has evolved really well over the years to serve that function.”

Obsessive compulsive disorders in families

Thursday, September 26, 2013 Capital NewsC

NEWS behaviours such as excessive washing or checking, the disease is often portrayed humorously in movies or on TV. Almost everyone can tell you of a friend who is ‘obsessive’ about some favourite activity or neur-

osis. In reality, OCD is no laughing matter. It can be a serious mental illness affecting roughly two percent of the population. Compulsions are repetitive behaviours or mental acts the person

feels driven to perform in response to obsessive thoughts and in order to relieve the associated anxiety. Far from simply being particular or neat, those with true OCD can be crippled by their condition as it can take up more

than an hour of each day and causes a great deal of interference in daily life. They usually feel shame and distress as a result. People often try to hide their condition and although most recognize that their obsessions are

excessive or unreasonable, it often takes years to seek professional help.

We do not know exactly why some people develop OCD, but we do know there is a strong genetic component. A recent study examining the records of 25,000 Swedish OCD patients and their families looked at the odds of relatives sharing the same diagnosis. Not surprisingly, the closer the relative, the more likely the OCD diagnosis. First degree relatives of OCD patients were five times more likely to also have the condition than relatives of those without the condition. The odds remained elevated but went down slightly with each degree of familial separation. A second arm of the study looked at twins and found that 47 per cent of the familial risk for OCD was due to genes rather than a shared environment. While this highlighted the strong genetic link, it also left significant room for potential environmental risk factors. More research will be necessary in order to determine what these may be. To date, there is insufficient evidence to point to anything with certainty. A third interesting part of this study examined the incidence of OCD in spouses or partners of the original OCD patient. Spouses were three times more likely to have OCD if their partner also had the condition. It is not certain why this incidence was increased, but researchers speculated those with obsessive tendencies may seek out mates with similar tendencies . Again, more research may provide additional insight in this area. At Okanagan Clinical Trials we are currently conducting a study of an investigational medication for OCD. If you are an adult between the ages of 18 and 65 and have OCD, you may be eligible to participate. Contact us at 250-862-8141 for more information.

NHL’s Devils return Severson

▼ WHL

Hoyer ‘home again’ with the Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Scott Hoyer can be excused if he’s experiencing an acute case of déjà vu this fall. The 47-year-old Regina native is back for his second tour of duty with the Kelowna Rockets, serving as the club’s athletic therapist, and as their speed, strength and conditioning coach. Hoyer worked for the Rockets from 2000 to 2006, before setting out on career path that would include stops with the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence Academy and the Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton. So when the club’s last athletic therapist, Jeff Thorburn, announced this spring he was moving on, Hoyer seized the opportunity to re-connect with one of junior hockey’s most successful franchises. While the sights and sounds are familiar in the halls and rooms of Prospera Place, Hoyer said both he and the team have grown and evolved since his last stop with the Rockets seven years ago. “A lot of the same faces are here, but as an organization, the Rockets are more experienced and the league is more professional,” said Hoyer who went to three Memorial Cups with the Rockets. “I’m more experienced, too, so they’re getting

hopefully a newer, better version of me. I’m kind of the old, new-guy who’s gone full circle and come back as a better therapist, a better strength and conditioning coach…it’s exciting to be back.” Rockets’ head coach Ryan Huska worked with Hoyer for three seasons, before he left to join the Edmonton Oilers in 2006. Huska said the experience and knowledge Hoyer has acquired along the way will be invaluable to the hockey club. “(Scott) has brought a different perspective into our dressing room in regards to workouts and how they’re tailored to each individual, it’s a good, new approach,” said Huska. “He comes back to us with a ton of experience from different programs. He has a great handle on conditioning and injury prevention, the really important parts of the job.” Aside from his technical expertise, Huska said Hoyer also possesses good people skills, another asset in a job that involves constant interaction with as many as 25 young men on a daily basis. “The players are still feeling him out, but it doesn’t take long before the relationships develop,” Huska said. “Scott will have a conversation with anyone, it’s a good quality to have. The more we can get these guys to open up and communicate, the

better we’ll be as a hockey team. Scott is a big part of that.” From Hoyer’s perspective, getting to know the people he’s working with is one of the most rewarding facets of the job. “To get to know these guys, where they’re from, their pets names, getting to know their moms and dads at camps is great,” he said. “They’re kids and they get homesick and I have an opportunity to help with their schoolwork on the bus, get them through injuries, you really delve into their personalities. That’s the fun part of the position; they’re kids and you’re helping them to be young men and gentlemen.” As for his many travels and destinations of the last decade-plus, Hoyer said one place stands out above the rest. “Honestly all the positions I had and places I went were great, but on the journey I never felt like I felt here,” Hoyer said of the Rockets. “I’m very comfortable here with the coaching staff, the front office, (GM) Bruce (Hamilton) and his family, all of it. It was hard back then to leave but I knew had to venture out and get better as a professional. So here I am…I’m home again.” Just watch Hoyer at work behind the bench during the Rockets’ home games and you’’ll see exactly what he means.

WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

SCOTT HOYER is familiar with the surroundings at Prospera Place having worked previously for the Rockets from 2000 to 2006.

ROCKET SHOTS…

Rockets’ forward Rourke Chartier has been listed as a C player in NHL Central Scouting’s preliminary rankings for the 2014 NHL draft. The C rating means Chartier is considered a fourth- to sixth-round prospect. The Saskatoon native was the

Rockets’ top rookie and scholastic player of the year last season…Former Rockets captain Colton Sissons was assigned this week to the American Hockey League’s Milwaukee Admirals by the Nashville Predators… The Rockets (2-0-0) return to action Saturday

when they host the Victoria Royals in the first of eight meetings between the teams this season. Face off at Prospera Place is 7 p.m…On Wednesday, Kelowna will travel to Everett to play the Silvertips.

After a three-week stay with the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, Damon Severson is back with the Kelowna Rockets. The 19-year-old defenseman will return to the Okanagan on Thursday after spending all of main training camp with the NHL club and playing in a pair of exhibition games. Severson saw close to 20 minutes of ice time in each game—one against the Islanders and one against Montreal. “It went really well and I think they were happy with the way I played,” said Severson, who was chosen by the Devils in the second round of the 2012 NHL draft. “I didn’t feel out of place but they obviously want to give me another year to mature in junior and I’m looking forward to getting back to Kelowna and helping my team.” Rockets’ assistant coach Dan Lambert said Severson’s return adds skill and experience to an already deep defensive corps. “Getting Severson back really solidifies our D core and gives us an experienced guy that can play key minutes in every situation,” said Lambert. Severson, the club’s top point producer among rearguards last season with 10 goals and 42 assists, will be in the lineup Saturday when the Rockets play host to the Victoria Royals.

Haaheim, Wade winners of Peak to Beak POE wins 4 of 5 in Minnesota The Peak to Beak is already Trevor Haaheim’s favourite race of the year. The fact that the 41-year-old is a multiple winner of the 18 km run is simply an added bonus. Haaheim won the Peak to Beak for the sixth time on Sunday, completing the course from Knox Mountain to Quail’s Gate Estate Winery in one hour three minutes 54 seconds. Haaheim, who also served as co-chairman of the 31st annual race this year, finished more than 4 1/2 minutes ahead of second-place finisher Gary Wade (1:08:31). “It was a perfect day, dry. I felt alright,” Haaheim said. “After coming down Knox it usually takes a couple of kilometers to settle into a pace. After that I try to put it kind of on autopilot. “ Kelowna’s Owen Harrison was third in 1:09:08. Gary Wade’s spouse, Dannica Wade, won the women’s race, placing 21st overall in 1:23:10. “The most difficult part was the downhill from Knox Mountain and

A trip to Blaine, Minnesota last weekend proved well worth the effort for the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy’s U-18 midget team. At a tournament which featured more the 330 scouts in attendance, POE posted a 4-1 record at the season-opening North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) Showcase. Coached by former Kelowna Rocket and Alberta Golden Bear Ryan Wade, POE opened the tourney with a 4-1 win over the California Titans, the same team that eliminated the Kelowna-based academy from the NAPHL playoffs last

season. On day two, POE played twice, opening with a 6-3 win over the Phoenix Firebirds. Tyler Benson and Hunter Zandee scored twice each in the win. Later in the day, POE defeated the Detroit Falcons 4-1 to move to 3-0. On the third day, POE suffered its only loss of the weekend, 4-1 to the Texas Tornado. The Pursuit U-18s bounced back in their final game with a 4-1 win over the St. Louis Selects. The result has the team tied for third place in the 16-team league after this first NAPHL event.

Two wins pulls Heat men into tie for first A pair of victories on the road has boosted the UBC Okanagan Heat into a first place tie in PACWEST men’s soccer. On Saturday in Richmond, the Heat held off the Langara Falcons for a 3-2 victory. Enzo Paal, Danny Chahal and Austin Jones tallied to give UBCO a 3-0 lead, before the No. 6-ranked Falcons made it interesting with two late goals on a slippery pitch. On a rainy Sunday in Squamish, the Heat took down the Quest Kermodes 4-1. Lucas Krivak, with

AUSTIN JONES scored twice over the weekend as the UBC Okanagan Heat won two games on the road in PACWEST soccer.

DALE ABBEY/HEAT ATHLETICS

a pair, Austin Jones and Jorden Leib tallied for UBCO, now 4-1-1 on the season and tied for top spot with TRU. “The boys controlled the vast majority of the game,” said Heat head coach Dante Zanatta said of Sunday’s win. “There were only a few instances on set pieces where I felt we weren’t as strong.” UBCO is back on the road this weekend, with matches Saturday in Nanaimo against the Vancouver Island Univesity Mariners, and Sunday in North Van vs the Capilano Blues.

▼ HEAT WOMEN

The UBCO women came up empty in backto-back games for the first time this season. On Saturday in Richmond, the Langara Falcons blanked the Heat 2-0. Midfielder Mairi Horth was the Heat’s

player of the game, generating her team’s best chances down the stretch of the match despite not being able to convert. On Sunday, the Heat’s lack of scoring touch was evident again in a 3-0 loss to Quest on a rainy in Squamish. “It was definitely not

the result we were looking for,” said Heat head coach Claire Paterson following the game. “Unfortunately some errors on our part let us down but the good thing is that errors are always fixable and we will be working hard this week to get back on track.”

The Heat (3-2-1) will hit the road once again this weekend to resume PACWEST play, traveling to Nanaimo to face Vancouver Island University on Saturday, then to North Vancouver to face Capilano University on Sunday.

without challenges, including 24 hours of travel time each way, a ninehour time change, and a nose bleed about a minute into her 3.5 minute free skate. “I lost my focus when the nose-bleed started but I was able to forget about it even though it was a little gushy,’’ said Delaurier.  “I never thought about stopping the program. When I landed some jumps afterwards I kind of forgot about it. It’s actually not the first time it’s happened.’’ Skate Canada assigned her to this event based on a strong summer

season, including a 136+ point finish at the Glacier Falls event at Anaheim, Calif. She is the second figure skater in Kelowna and Okanagan history to receive an ISU Junior Grand Prix assignment. Delaurier was Canada’s national champion at the pre-novice level in 2012, and the national bronze medalist in 2013.  This season she is competing at the junior level. Julianne, a student at Okanagan Mission Secondary, trains in Kelowna year-round with coaches Karen and Jason Mongrain.

Don’t blame judge for fatal accident ruling T he acquittal on Wednesday of a distracted driver charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death is hard to take for the families left to mourn the young couple who lost their lives. The tragic event occurred near midnight on Oct. 19, 2010.  It took almost three years for the criminal charge against the distracted driver to make its way through the court system and result in the verdict this week. The distracted driver testified in her own defence.  While doing so, she broke into tears as she apologized for the loss of life.  There was no disputing the fact that she was the one behind the wheel of the car that launched into flight after hitting a concrete median, smashing into the young people’s Suzuki Swift, ripping the roof off and killing the young occupants. There was also no disputing the fact that the crash occurred because the distracted driver, travelling along the Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows, had pulled around traffic that had stopped at a red light at an inter-

section she was The Criminal ACHIEVING planning to pass Code section was JUSTICE through, and considered by Caninto a “right turn ada’s top court last only” lane going year in a case called highway speed.

I urge those loved ones left behind in the tragic aftermath of inattentive driving to direct your disappointment not to the courts who apply the law we task them to apply, but instead to our driving culture, and join in working to change the driving attitudes that make up that culture.  Let’s work together to eliminate inattentive driving to the point that such driving resulting in this kind of tragic and totally avoidable loss of life becomes a “marked departure” from normal driving behaviour.

to be a busy day of bargains and reuse. “The beauty of this event is no driving around from garage sale to garage sale, you can find a ton of treasures up for grabs all in one convenient location,” Stewart said. “You just never know what’s going to show up on sale day—as they say, one person’s trash is another’s treasure. Plus, keeping any unnecessary material out of our landfill is always a bonus.” Stewart says trunk sales were originally created for condo and apartment dwellers who wouldn’t traditionally have the opportunity to host their own garage sales. And when the sale is over, given the event is all about reuse, the Salvation Army, Big Brothers and Sisters, Planet Earth Recycling and Canadian Diabetes will also be on hand to accept donations from sellers not wishing to pack up their wares and take them home again. The Okanagan College campus is located at 1000 KLO Rd. in parking lot 17 next to the student residence buildings. The sale is free to attend, with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Okanagan Mission Lions Club. Keep up on local news at the kelownacapnews.com

Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and The Home Depot Canada Foundation have joined forces to help Kelowna’s youth. On Wednesday through Friday this week, Team Depot volunteers from Kelowna partnered up to help renovate the Kelowna Youth Shelter located at 1633 Richter St., operated by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. The club is a leading provider of programs to children and youth that support the healthy physical, educational and social development for more than 6,000 young people and families each year. Each centre creates a safe, supportive environment where children and youth experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. Working alongside youth from the area, Team Depot volunteers will complete an indoor renovation projects which includes repairs to the dorms and walls, painting and the replacement of ceiling tiles that has welcomed so many youth from the area. “We are extremely thankful to The Home Depot Canada Foundation for making this possible,” said Craig Monley, chief executive officer of Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. This community build project is a perfect fit for The Home Depot Canada Foundation whose focus is supporting affordable housing. The foundation has long committed to building strong communities for families and youth in need. Sept. 1 marked the 11 year anniversary of its annual Celebration of Service Campaign. The month-long campaign honours Team Depot volunteers from coastto-coast by acknowledging their dedication to volunteerism. e “Active at all 180 stores across Canada, associates fare encouraged and empowered to take a leadership role in their communities by volunteering on projects with local and national partners, just like this one in Kelowna,” said Home Depot vice-president Kim Forgues. w

And because we’ve controlled spending, we’re able to make investments that will help grow the economy, such as four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway from Kamloops to the Alberta border, and the creation of our Blue Ribbon Panel to study crime reduction opportunities, chaired by MLA Darryl Plecas, an internationally-respected criminologist. I also asked Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations and Kelowna-Mission

MLA;S REPORT

Christy Clark MLA, to take on an additional role as Minister Responsible for Rural Development. It’s no secret that a significant component of our plan is taking advantage of the opportunity presented by LNG. And while our surplus supply is primarily in the north, LNG will create 100,000 jobs throughout the province. To help ensure B.C. businesses benefit, we announced an LNG-Buy BC Program. Our government will connect local business-

es—such as the growing tech sector in the Central Okanagan—to the multi-national corporations building their projects. The LNG transformation is already happening. For example, Chevron Apache has already invested $800 million just to get their site ready to build. They already have 500 people on the ground—working right now. In total, $7 billion has already been spent to secure the rights to ship LNG from B.C. Seven companies have applied for export licenses, and three facilities already have licences approved. If we’re going to realize the opportunity, we have to put politics behind us and welcome everyone to the table.

That’s why I reached out to private sector unions; we’re working towards the same thing— making sure British Columbians are first in line for the jobs that will come. Since I’ve become premier, I’ve focused on the things that matter to real people—improving economic prospects for them, their families, and their kids; on growing the economy, and securing a more prosperous future. Over the last two years, we’ve stuck to our plan. To keep us on that path and stick to the plan, we need to work together. Because when we work together, the sky’s the limit. Christy Clark is the premier of B.C. and the Liberal MLA for Westside-Kelowna.

Local sheriff cited for special award An award for outstanding achievement has been presented to a member of the inspector of the Kelowna Sheriffs Office. Nathan Davies was recognized for excelling at his job, handling difficult situations with grace and professionalism and demonstrating a high level of dedication above and beyond the scope of his duties. The award is officially called the Deputy Chief Gene Walsh Commendation. The Chief Sheriff Commendation, which recognizes outstanding achievement and is the highest honour a sheriff can receive, was award-

ed to Staff Sgt. Dale Lahaise, of the Sheriff Provincial Operations Centre in Coquitlam. Lahaise is being recognized for a career of outstanding achievement and for developing a number of materials and protocols that have helped shape B.C. Sheriff Services. These include forming the ceremonial unit, improving recruitment, and developing the Escorts Manual Fourteen other sheriffs were also awarded the Peace Officer Exemplary Service medal for service of 20 years or longer. Sheriffs provide a vital service to British Columbia by ensuring the

safety and security of all justice system participants, including the judiciary, legal counsel, accused and the public while on court property or during transport. B.C.’s Lieutenant-Governor Judith Guichon and Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton presented the awards at the recent annual B.C. Sheriff Services Retirement and Awards Gala in Coquitlam. There are 510 sheriff positions in 2013-14, with sheriffs and deputy sheriffs working in 45 courthouses and 44 circuit courts throughout the province.

Much goes into selecting art for exhibition

P

eople meeting me for the first time often ask how I go about selecting the exhibitions for the Kelowna Art Gallery. There is no short answer to this, as it is a complex process, and a part of my job I take very seriously. Boiling it down, I mostly try to go for the “juice,” as a local artist refers to it—work that astounds, delights and amazes me, and that I think is important to show to Kelowna audiences. The art that makes me the most excited is generally art that is visual, in which any socio-political aspects, for example, are wedded to the visual aspect of the art. The communication needs to be via the vocabulary of art, and that aspect must be paramount for the work to function for me as art per se, and not dissolve into signage or didactic displays. I like work in which the elements and meaning are emotionally and psychologically authentic, not taken from a book, or illustrating some conceptual notion. I aim for a balance overall, over time, of media (painting, drawing, printmaking video, installation, etc.), region (local and from elsewhere), age, gender, all ethnicities, and a range of approaches of artists. Group shows, solo shows, from time to time

ON VIEW

Liz Wylie historical work are all featured, to try to provide a lively mix of exhibitions. I like to consider shows that are offered on tour to us by other Canadian galleries from the point of view of Kelowna audiences, not only what I find appealing or interesting myself: ‘What would this show bring to Kelowna?’ I ask myself. ‘Would this be work that would be important for people here to see for whatever reason(s).’ How do I find artists? Nothing magical. I spend lots of time looking at art magazines, the Internet, visiting galleries in other cities, and, of course, reviewing submissions received from artists. The decisions can be tough, as the Kelowna Art Gallery produces only four shows annually in our large gallery space, and four in the small gallery, so each show is so vitally important, and we certainly don’t want to waste space or time with any sub-par work. The Kelowna Art Gallery receives its funding to promote and support

KELOWNA ART GALLERY

CLEA HAUGO, registrar at the Kelowna Art Gallery (above), takes a close look at the works of art where the

permanent collection is stored in the gallery’s temperature- and humidity-controlled vault, while KAG curator Liz Wylie (below) spins through the collection in their digital version. These methods are just part of choosing which pieces of art to include in any exhibition of works from the gallery’s permanent collection. the work of professional, living Canadian artists. It is not the function of the curatorial program of exhibitions here to support local artists unless they have made a name for themselves already— finished training, had exhibitions elsewhere, and perhaps received some curatorial and/or critical reception. I strive to incorporate work by these local artists, both in solo and in group exhibitions at the gallery, and in our beautiful 40-foot-long space at the Kelowna International

Airport. That said, artists of any stripe are most welcome to contact me at any time to discuss their work, either via email or in person, which I consider a big part of my role here, not just the exhibitions themselves (along with their accompanying publications). By way of a little sneak preview, we have an exciting lineup of shows for 2014, including a touring show from the Vancouver Art Gallery, a large survey show of Ann Kipling’s drawings, a solo show of Vancouver-based Christos Dikeakos, who has an apple orchard in Naramata, about fruit growing in the Okanagan, and a touring show from the Mackenzie Gallery in Regina of the work produced by a group active in the last century who called themselves the Professional Native Indian Artists. Plus, we will mount four solo shows in the small gallery that look exciting and fascinating, along with a new artist’s garden in our courtyard in spring, and two more solo installations at the Kelowna International Airport space, by local artists. Keep watching this space for my mo nthly reports. Liz Wylie is the curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery. 250-762-2226 http://kelownaartgallery.com

Toronto musical artist’s tour arrives in Kelowna mid-October “Ruminative and nuanced and, we suspect, emotionally naked enough to alter the mood of a room,” is how Jadea Kelly’s music was described in the Toronto Star. If poetic music is what

grabs your attention, one artist stepping into the spotlight at the Streaming Café next month might be just the thing to get your heart pumping. Jadea Kelly is hitting the road, bringing her songs from Toronto to the

Kelowna stage for a crack at the live-streamed shows that offer everyone in the country a taste of the B.C. Interior cultural flare. Her tour actually kicks off this weekend as she showcases her sophomore release, Clover, from St.

John’s, NL to the B.C. coast, arriving in Kelowna mid-October. “Kelly’s voice is pure and cool like fresh water,” wrote Julia Leconte, in her review of the work for Now Magazine. Through heartache

and iron fists, Jadea spends her time in this collection really discovering her voice, which is described as “an intriguing marriage of old and new, built with heavy orchestration, darker organ pads, layered harmonies

and sonic space” in her own publicity materials. This new album comes three years after her debut, Eastbound Platform, and after a relentless few years touring the festival circuit and making some must-see Can-

efore Ron Howard became an Academy Award-winning director and producer, he was best known as Opie on The Andy Griffith Show and Richie Cunningham on Happy Days. He had huge success as a director of such hits as Splash, Cocoon, Parenthood, Backdraft, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code. His latest is Rush which is being called a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) stars as the charismatic Englishman Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglorious Basterds) is the disciplined Austrian Lauda. Rush follows the two drivers both on and off the track as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance. After a few middling efforts, Howard looks like he is back on top with Rush as it is getting critical acclaim, especially for the exhilarating race sequences and the perform-

The actor who got his start in television as Tommy in 3rd Rock from the Sun is on his way to a similar career path. Gordon-Levitt makes his debut as writer and director with the comedy Don Jon, in which he also plays the title character. A name that his buddies call him due to his ability to seduce a different woman every weekend, Don Jon’s real passion is his addiction to pornography. However, he must confront his demons when he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson), an old-fashioned girl who wants the romantic comedy life of finding her Prince Charming and

riding off into the sunset. Both must wrestle with both of their expectations of the opposite sex and try to find true intimacy with each other. Also starring Julianne Moore, Don Jon premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and then a few weeks ago at the Toronto International Film Festival, getting raves at both. However, this is not a sweet and syrupy romantic comedy and you may be shocked with the

amount of sexuality and language in it, especially since one of the stars is former TV dad Tony Danza. Picking up where the original left off, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 sees inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius finally being recognized when he is invited to join the Live Corp Company where the best and the brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. But Flint’s dream to be recognized as a great inventor is jeopardized when he discovers that his most infamous machine (which turns water into food) is still operating and is now creating food-animal hybrids called “foodimals.” With the fate of humanity in his hands, Flint and his friends are sent on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again.

ENTERTAINMENT

Jadea Kelley renders a ‘mournful, noir-country sound’ Kelly from B1 fully onto the stage, particularly after she toured Europe as a feature artists in several house concerts. 

“Kelly really shines when she fully commits to the mournful, noir-country sound featured on Clover (I’ll Be, You Had Me, Powell River),” Leconte

commented in her Now article. “Here, she set her acoustic guitar aside for a resonant hollow-bodied electric, slowed tempos to a crawl and pushed

her plaintive vocals to the farthest, darkest corners of the room.” Kelly will play Kelowna’s Streaming Café on Oct. 23.

Vine to table at Little Straw Vineyards in West Kelowna T he Slamka family really is the shining example of a family-run winery, located on the lower slopes of Mt Boucherie in West Kelowna. There are two generations of them involved in this bustling business— from root to bottle and from wine shop to table, you are bound to meet at least a couple of members of this friendly family while visiting. The three Slamka brothers Pete, Ric and Tim, along with their wives Lynn, Sue and Tina, wear various hats on the vineyard/winery as well as involving their children in the mix. There are a few non-Slamkas in the crew, including chef Trevor Mayhew who is at the helm of the Barrel Top Restaurant located on the second floor of their wine shop. Cozy and quaint, with indoor and outdoor patio tables looking over the vineyards onto Okanagan Lake, the Barrel Top offers a great menu focusing on local cuisine. Incidentally, Trevor recently won Best Dish served at the local Spot Prawn Festival held at Manteo Resort this spring—quite an honour, especially given the competition on site. Chef Mayhew comes to us from Alberta and is revelling in the creative, local cooking he can produce while liv-

His new passion has been using the grapevines to smoke various meats that really gives the cuisine a vineyard spin and also provides a good use for the clipped vines. A former stand-up comedian, this chef will also be able to provide some great entertainment while dining—if he has time. Taking off his chef hat between cooking times, winemaker Pete Slamka keeps Trevor busy in the cellar in training as assistant winemaker. Recently, the Slamkas were thrilled by a surprise visit from Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Prime Minister made only one winery stop, other than Quails’ Gate Winery where his event was being held, and that was Little Straw Vineyards. He picked up a couple of bottles of Tapestry to take home to Ottawa. Little Straw Vineyards is located at 2815 Ourtoland Rd. in West Kelowna.

Recognizing the signs of kidney failure in your pet T he organs that probably fascinate me most are the kidneys. The kidneys are two fairly small, bean-shaped organs located in the abdomen which function as the body’s filter. As blood flows into the kidneys, it is filtered of all the waste products while preserving essential nutrients. The kidneys are also responsible for regulating the hydration of the body, excreting the fluids we don’t need and leaving just the right amount we do need. After the filtration process, the blood continues to flow back into the body’s circulation. The excess of fluids and the body waste products come out of the kidneys in the form of urine. The urine flows from the kidneys into the urinary bladder and from there is secreted out when the bladder gets full. Because the kidneys are responsible for regulating the body’s hydration, one can assess a hydration level by the urine output. For pets, the urine will be copious, light in colour and diluted. When the body is dehydrated, the kidneys will secrete minimum amount of fluids to retain as much as possible in the blood. Under this scenario, the urine will be dark yellow, smelly and concentrated. If you recognize this in your pet, it’s a sign that your pet is not sufficiently hydrated and needs to drink more water. The normal function of kidneys is extremely important for the body’s existence.

FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz The kidneys are quite durable organs that can continue functioning even when damaged. In fact, signs of kidney failure will be noticeable only when 70 per cent of a kidney is damaged. Kidney failure can occur suddenly due to ingestion of a toxic substance or over a longer period as a pet ages. Acute failure will lead to more dramatic symptoms and will show a more significant kidney failure than the chronic cases, but if caught in time it may be reversed. Chronic kidney failure can’t be reversed and the treatment focuses on trying to slow down the process and support the animal. The kidneys have additional functions such as secreting hormones that trigger red blood cell production and blood pressure regulation. When the kidney fails, it does the opposite of its normal function. The body waste products are staying in the blood, the water and nutrients are secreted in the urine. The symptoms of kidney failure are the manifestation of that. In acute failure, the symptoms are related mostly to the toxic effect of the retained waste products of the body. The most common symptoms of acute kidney failure are vomiting, inappetence, very little or

no urine output, depression and in severe cases neurologic abnormalities including seizure and coma. In the chronic form of kidney failure, the symptoms are less dramatic and more subtle over time. In the chronic form, the symptoms are more related to the loss of the essential nutrients in the urine. Animals that suffer from chronic kidney failure will typically lose significant weight, will drink and urinate excessively.

Vomiting and depression are also common in this form of the disease. Because the kidneys are also responsible for controlling the red blood cells and blood pressure, animals with chronic damage are typically anaemic (will have pale gums and skin) and suffer from blood pressure abnormalities. The kidney function can be evaluated easily with blood and urine sampling. For people, the treatment for kidney failure is

dialysis treatments involving a machine that filters the blood instead of the kidneys. Unfortunately in veterinary medicine, dialysis is not yet available. So the treatment for kidney failure consists of supportive treatment. Aggressive fluid therapy that helps flashing the kidneys and supportive nutrition and nutritional supplements are the main courses of action. As for prevention, it’s impossible to prevent the chronic form that is

caused by aging. However, the acute form is most commonly a result of intoxication. Avoid giving human medication to your pet, some of the common human over the counter drugs, especially drugs such as Tylanol and Advil are toxic to pets kidneys. Antifreeze (especially ethylene glycol based) is extremely dangerous because it is palatable to pets and very toxic to the kidneys. Some metals are toxic to pets, as well as some

human food, such as chocolate, grapes and raisins. If you recognize any of the symptoms mentioned consult your vet. Even making small changes in your pet’s life, such as changing its diet to a kidney supportive diet can often help slowing down the deterioration and prolong your furry friend’s life.

What Should You Do if Someone is Having a Heart Attack?

W. Gifford-Jones, MD

I

t has been widely talked about for many years so it doesn’t come as a big surprise... heart disease, strokes and heart attacks are at an all-time high, affecting millions of Canadians. In fact, about 8 out of 10 Canadians are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease -a devastating illness that 74,000 people die from each year.

What exactly is a heart attack? When the blood supply to the heart is slowed or stopped because of a blockage, a heart attack occurs. Atherosclerosis, the narrowing of coronary arteries due to plaque buildup, causes more than 90% of heart attacks. A heart attack may also occur when a coronary artery temporarily contracts or goes into a severe spasm, shutting off blood flow to the heart. Not all people who have heart attacks experience the same symptoms or experience them to the same degree. Many heart attacks aren’t as dramatic as the ones you’ve seen on TV. Some people have no symptoms at all, while for others, the first sign may be sudden cardiac arrest. Still, the more signs and symptoms, the greater the likelihood that person may be having a heart attack. The severity of heart attack symptoms can vary too. Some people have mild pain, while others experience severe pain. A heart attack can occur anytime — at work or play, while you’re resting, or while you’re in motion. Some heart attacks strike suddenly, but many people who experience a heart attack have warning signs and symptoms hours, days or weeks in advance. The earliest warning of a heart attack may be recurrent chest pain (angina) that is triggered by exertion. Angina is caused by a temporary decrease in blood flow to the heart.

Common symptoms include: • Pressure, tightness, pain, or a squeezing or aching sensation in the chest or arms. It may also spread to the neck, jaw or back. • Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or abdominal pain • Shortness of breath • Sweating or a cold sweat • Feelings of anxiety or an impending sense of doom • Fatigue • Trouble sleeping • Light-headedness or dizziness

What to do if you see someone having a heart attack? If you encounter someone who is unconscious from a presumed heart attack, call for emergency medical help If you have received training in emergency procedures, begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This helps deliver oxygen to the body and brain. According to the American Heart Association, regardless of whether you’ve been trained, you should begin CPR with chest compressions. Press down about 2 inches (5 centimeters) on the person’s chest at a rate of about 100 a minute. If you’ve been trained in CPR, check the person’s airway and deliver rescue breaths after every 30 compressions. If you haven’t been trained, continue compressions until help arrives. If you are experiencing any warning signs, you should call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number right away, or have someone call for you. Stop all activity and sit or lie down in a position that is most comfortable and try to remain calm until help arrives.

What can you do to improve your heart health? Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, reported 25 years ago that humans do not make their own Vitamin C. He also found that Vitamin C is needed to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Dr. Pauling also found that taking several thousand milligrams of Vitamin C a day can help to remove artery blockages and help to prevent a heart attack. Prevention is your best strategy for a strong and healthy cardiovascular system. This Message Brought to You By...

will celebrate people with diversabilities. Here in Kelowna, Mayor Walter Gray has officially proclaimed Oct 7 to 13 as Pathways Abilities Society Week, acknowledging the society’s work and the valuable contribution to this community made by people with diversabilities. To kick off the week, Pathways is inviting everyone in Kelowna to join together in front of City Hall at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 8, as the society attempts to create the city’s first “human in-

clusion pathway” along Water Street. “The idea is to form a string of people from all walks of life, standing hand-in-hand along Water Street, in front of City Hall, to demonstrate the diversity of our community. We believe every person matters, and we hope to draw as many people as possible to join us downtown to create the pathway,” said Daley. The pathway will stretch up the east side of Water and onto Doyle. Refreshments will be served.

non Lake and Rose Valley Elementary Schools • Rose Valley Elementary School; Monday, Sept. 30, 6 to 8 p.m. • Shannon Lake Elementary School; Tuesday, Oct.1, 6 to 8 p.m. These meetings are designed to gather input on the proposed catchment area and boundaries for the new Mar Jok Elementary School through the adjustment and establishment of catchment areas around both Shannon Lake Elementary and Rose Valley Elementary

mentary schools on the Westside. 3. Community Consultation on French immersion for the Westside • Glenrosa Middle School, Tuesday, Oct. 15, 6 to 8 p.m. These consultation meetings are intended to collect input on the possibility of establishing a middle school French immersion program on the Westside.

A BIT ABOUT

DAYS

sCapital News Thursday, September 26, 2013

CULTURE

Launched in September 2010, Culture Days is a free annual event designed to invite the public to celebrate and explore arts and culture in communities in every province and territory in Canada. Individual artists, diverse cultural groups, organizations, municipalities, and festivals old and new come together under one banner each year to catalyze and inspire greater participation in arts and culture by featuring free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to the behind-the-scenes world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators and designers in their home community during Culture Days. Culture Days represents the largest-ever voluntary collective public participation campaign undertaken by the arts and cultural community in Canada. How the movement works: There is an open call for all individual artists, groups, municipalities and arts and cultural organizations of all types and disciplines to join the movement and offer free participatory and interactive arts and cultural activities during Culture Days. Everyone is encouraged to join the movement: whether you are a professional or amateur cultural creator (i.e. artist, artisan, educator, animator, historian, curator, architect, designer, etc.), group, venue or organization, including culturally diverse, Aboriginal, urban and rural communities, there is a role to play!

Mary, aged 91, went home to be with her Lord and Saviour on September 21, 2013 at Kelowna General Hospital. Born on the family homestead near Maidstone, SK, she moved with her parents and sisters to Westbank, BC in 1939. As a young girl on the prairies, she came to know the Lord Jesus as her Saviour and after being baptized, met with a few other believers in the home of her grandparents, Walter and Eliza Broadhead. Other than a brief period when, she worked in Vancouver, she spent the rest of her life in Westbank and was a faithful member of the assembly meeting there in Highway Gospel Hall. In Janurary, 1944 she married John Howard Griffin who predeceased her in 1979. She leaves behind 16 children who by the grace of God are all Christians-- Violet (Allen) McCurrie of North Vancouver; Elaine (John) Fairfield of Parksville, BC; Elizabeth (Robert) Ronald of Calgary, AB; Shirley (Phil) Atkinson of Port Alberni, Sidney (Connie) of Carnduff, Victor (Mary) of Naguanagua, Venezuela; Valerie (Leroy) Tanis of Marysville, WA; Marvin (April) of Westbank, BC; Rhoda (Ralston) Atkinson of Port Alberni, BC; Andrew (Louise) of Kelowna, BC; Robert (Dorie Lyn) of Fredericton, NB; Glenn (Karen) of Westbank, BC; Helen of San Salvador, El Salvador; Emily of Kelowna, BC; Stephen (Denise) of Westbank, BC; and Charlene (Tim) Smith of Fredericton, NB. In addition, Mary leaves to her godly heritage, 50 grandchildren (35 spouses) and 82 great grandchildren. She also has four sisters still alive, Frances Funnel, Westbank; Alice (Neal) Thomson, and Jean Grice in Langley; and Edith Bergsma in Vancouver along with numerous sister-in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews and friends. This quiet, humble, gracious, caring, gentle woman will be greatly missed. Her children “rise up and call her blessed”. The funeral will be held at 1:00 PM Saturday, September 28th, at the Highway Gospel Hall, 2549 Hebert Road, Westbank, with interment to follow at the Westbank Cemetery. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to either: Christian Home for Children, El Salvador or Sakeji School, Zambia.

MONKHOUSE, FRANK COULTON Passed away on September 22, 2013, after a long illness at Cottonwoods, his home for the last five years. Frank was born in Eyebrow, Saskatchewan on December 1, 1913. He attended high school and teachers college in Moose Jaw. For 37 years he had a teaching career at institutions ranging from a one-room Prairie schoolhouse to the University of Toronto Medical School. In addition to teaching he was a research scientist at the Charles Best Institute and a University administrator. After retiring to Kelowna in 1974 he actively pursued a variety of interests, he was, among others, a keen gardener, a woodworker, curler and golfer. His last years were spent quietly among his orchids, tropical fish and books. He is survived and is sorely missed by Doris, his wife of 74 years; sons Bryan (Patti) and Alan (Deborah) as well as five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A Memorial Service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, September 27th at First Memorial Funeral Services, 1211 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna internment to follow at Lakeview Memorial Gardens. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com. and searching his name under stories. Arrangements in care of First Memorial Funeral Services, (250)762-2299.

BAKER, GRAHAM MERVYN Graham Baker of Kelowna, BC, passed away in his home comforted by his loving wife, soulmate and bestfriend, Coralynn, by his side, on the morning of Friday, September 20, 2013. Graham is survived by and in the hearts of son, Vernon (Suzy) Baker, Vancouver, BC, daughter, Melody (Todd) Baker-Erickson, Salt Spring Island, step-daughter, Lisa (Glenn) Moss, Ottawa, Ontario, grandson, Brooks Baker-Erickson and granddaughter Charley Baker-Erickson and grandsons Brendan and Brayden Moss. Survived by siblings residing in England, sister Shirley (Barry) Harvey and sister Marie (Ken) Walker. Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We are traveling by train. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. Out the windows we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of smoke pouring from a power plant, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of mountains and rolling hillsides of city skylines and village halls. On a certain day, at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Once we get there so many wonderful dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed puzzle. Sooner or later, we realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true joy of life is in the trip. The station is only a dream that constantly outdistances us. So, “Relish the moment,” it isn’t the burden of today that drives men mad, it is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today. Stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles, instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more, cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough. At Graham’s request there will be no service. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

Barry Gerding EDITOR

The Central Okanagan United Way decided to apply its promotional slogan “Where Change Begins” to its fundraising campaign kick-off breakfast on Tuesday morning at the Delta Grand Hotel. Unlike past years, the campaign committee opted this year to post a fundraising target that, in recent years, has always exceeded the $1 million mark. Marla O’Brien, United Way executive director for Central Okanagan and South Okanagan/Similkameen, said the intent behind the campaign this year is to downplay the million-plus target because it tended to overshadow the reality that all donations, big and small, count in helping support the 29 social service agencies in the Central Okanagan, and the efforts of the volunteers and

staff of those agencies and the impact of the work they do in the community. “Sometimes it seems like we were getting lost in the big campaign fundraising number we were shooting for and not focusing on what a difference the United Way and the agencies we support makes in the community,” O’Brien said. Numerous representatives of those various agencies spoke briefly at the breakfast about the services they provide to local residents young and old. Jim Paterson, business development director for the City of Kelowna and co-chair of the fundraising committee this year, with Jennifer Robbins of CIBC, said the fundraising aim over the next five months will be to appeal to the quality of life local residents want to see represented in their community. “If we get just one per

Gorman Bros. also stepped forward to get the

fundraising ball rolling with a $20,000 donation, which will be coupled by the employee donation program the West Kelowna sawmill workers also support.

“We build ourselves up as a community by helping others,” said Ron Gorman. “We believe in the United Way and the agencies it supports are a good thing for our community.”

Council defines where medical pot can grow Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

West Kelowna is the first municipality in the Okanagan to tackle the controversial issue of identifying where it wants medicinal marijuana growing operations to be located in future. The move came in light of announced federal government changes to the medical marijuana growing program that currently allows only licenced individuals to grow pot for medical purposes in their homes as well as in other approved locations. But under new federal rules, Ottawa will stop issuing individuals with licences to produce marijuana for medical purposes Oct. 1 and, as of March

31, 2014, the cultivation of medical marijuana will no longer be permitted in private dwellings. Licences will now only go to companies. On Tuesday, West Kelowna council voted 5-2 to only allow licensed grow operations in industrial areas in the future. “I’m concerned about security,” said Coun. Bryden Winsby, who moved the motion that council supported. “My preference is to keep it in a building where it can be secure.” But while the council wants licenced growers to only operate out of buildings in industrial areas, the province’s Agricultural Land Commission has said licenced marijuana growing is a recognized farm use and, as such, would be al-

lowed in ALR land. The ALC’s stance concerned council as it debated Winsby’s motion, with several councillors saying they felt the ALC’s position will trump the district’s desire to see it kept off farm land. “We may be setting ourselves up for a confrontation with the ALC over this,” warned Mayor Doug Findlater, who supported Winsby’s motion. Because council’s move will have to go to a public hearing as it requires a zoning amendment, West Kelowna residents will get to weigh in on the issue. “That will be quite a public hearing,” predicted Coun. Duane Ophus. No date has been set for the public hearing as staff must first prepare draft regulations for the zoning

change. A staff report prepared for council said while the City of Kamloops has moved ahead with a similar zoning amendment to restrict medical marijuana growing operation to industrial areas there, and Summerland has said it considers medical marijuana growing both an industrial and an agriculture use, none of five other major Okanagan cities—Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon, Lake Country or Peachland—have made, or are in the process of making, amendments to their existing zoning bylaws. West Kelowna staff said there are currently four licenced medical marijuana operations in the district, three on industrial-zoned land and the fourth on land

zoned commercial. Only councillors Rick de Jong and David Knowles voted against Winsby’s motion, with de Jong saying he felt it was premature for council to deal it and Knowles saying getting into a fight with the ALC would be a “waste of time.” But Findlater said he believed council was doing what its collective gut was telling it to do. “This is pioneering,” he said. “There is no template for how to manage this issue.” He added the key will be to make sure the pot producers do not bother others around them and that’s why he feels a secure and proper facility in an industrial location is the best place for commercial medical marijuana production.

West Kelowna council is pressing ahead with its plan for a new municipal hall in Westbank. On Tuesday, council voted unanimously to prepare a “prequalification” document, that would invite interested developers to come forward and, possibly, offer up land for a new 23,000-25,000-squarefoot, two-storey building that the district’s consultant estimates would cost $6.5 million to build. Throw in another $2 million to buy the land and West Kelowna taxpayers could be looking at a 2.4 per cent in-

crease ($40) on their annual property taxes to pay the building, say district finance department staff. The estimated $8.5 million total for the project would include $1 million which the district has already set aside for the project. “I’m pleased with what I’m hearing,” said Mayor Doug Findlater following a presentation by project consultant Jonathan Huggert. “I feel it’s viable and affordable.” Findlater said the district could have decided to locate the new municipal hall in another area of West Kelowna but felt it was incumbent on it to do something to help make the downtown Westbank

area more viable “This is it,” he said. The Westbank Town Centre, as the district calls the area, has seen a drastic loss of business in recent years as large commercial and retail development has grown on the nearby Westbank First Nation reserve land. It also has had to deal with the issue of the Highway 97 couplet running through the area. The municipality recently gave up its effort to get rid of the couplet. In making its decision to proceed with the plan for a new municipal hall, council went with Huggert’s recommendation that the building be part of a comprehensive de-

velopment that could see other “complementary” development on the same site. While the hall and the land it would sit on would be owned by the municipality, Huggert said it could be part of a larger development rather than a structure standing on its own. Huggert’s report suggests the district needs a building with at least 23,000-square feet of space on a two-acre property. The building, however, could be larger if Interior Health comes on board and takes some of the space. IHA has indicated it wants to expand in the Westbank area. The district’s chief administrative officer Jason Johnson said he has a meeting planned with IHA officials Oct. 15 to discuss the possibility of the health authority becoming part of the project. In a preliminary timeline presented by Huggert, the investigation into a potential partnership with IHA and preparing and issuing the prequalification document could take place as early as next month, with a December deadline for potential builders to respond. The responses would then be evaluated in January, with a report back to council in February. A formal request for proposals could be issued in March 2014 to a shortlist of three proponents, with a winner recommended to council in May. Coun. Bryden Winsby questioned the quick timeframe but Huggert said it is doable as it is based on a similar timeframe for a similar building recently embarked on by the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District and one used by Merritt when it built its city hall several years ago. If the district is successful in building a new municipal hall, it would mean the current municipal offices at the Mt. Boucherie Recreation Complex would return to their

Clubs Day at MBSS By: Kassidie Cornell Grade 12 Recently Mount Boucherie students took part in the school’s annual Clubs Day. This was a day when students had the opportunity to explore, learn, and sign up for any of the 15 extra circular clubs that are offered at MBSS. The purpose of Clubs Day was to give students a chance to get involved not only in the school but in the community as well. Each club had a table with a representative available to answer any questions. All of the clubs said they had several new members join their club. The focus group for Clubs Day was the grade tens. The transition from middle school to high school is not always easy for some students, and that’s why it was so important for this grade to get involved. The grade 10s are still adjusting to high school life, and by joining a club or two they are opening the doors to greater possibilities in their lives: “There are way more clubs here at MBSS than in middle school. I’m looking forward to joining one or two clubs. Having this day is a great idea!” said grade 10 student, Emma Andreen. Some of the clubs that are offered at Mount Boucherie include Anime Club, Chess Club, Global Service Club, Grad Committee, Journalism Club, Rotary Club and even Dragon’s Den. There are endless possibilities for clubs; students even have the opportunity to create

their own club, as long as they have a teacher representative. All of these clubs would not be offered if it weren’t for the amazing staff members at MBSS and various community members. The clubs run throughout the school year, as many have year-end trips, such as the Science Club. The Science Club is a great opportunity for students to learn in a more hands-on environment by doing large scale experiments that cannot be done during class time. Other clubs like the Global Service Club run fundraisers throughout the year. Fundraisers include a drive thru breakfast which is taking place on October 31st, the Ethical Threads Fashion Show in February, and the Family Carnival in May. The Dragon’s Den Club is based off the highly acclaimed Canadian television show “Dragon’s Den”. This group of students work together on product design, marketing, and business development to eventually compete in the district competition. Clubs Day provides students with opportunities to compliment and enrich their experience at MBSS. Students are always encouraged to challenge themselves as their knowledge, skills, and abilities grow beyond the classroom walls thanks in part to the huge variety of clubs and groups that are offered at Mount Boucherie Secondary School.

With the students of Mount Boucherie Secondary School (MBSS) reverting from their summer hibernation, the highly anticipated and well recognized athletic programs are underway. That means we are looking for the support from students, family members, and friends of Mount Boucherie students, including anyone in the community to come and cheer on West Kelowna’s one and only high school in their journey to victory! The sport teams representing Mount Boucherie this fall will consist of four volleyball teams, both junior and senior for girls and boys, AAA boys soccer, junior and senior girls field hockey, junior varsity and AAA boys football, and cross country for both girls and boys, all ages grade 10 to 12. With so many amazing opportunities for athletics at Mount Boucherie, it should go without saying that none of it would be possible without the countless hours volunteered by all of the coaches and sponsors, along with their determination and drive for success. In addition, the support from community members throughout West Kelowna is very much appreciated and also honoured by all of those participating in sports this year. On behalf of Mount Boucherie and its athletes, I would not only like to thank you for your support for this upcoming year, but also invite you to Mount Boucherie athletic events.
