ffecting both children and adults, there are more than 300,000 Canadians who are afflicted with type 1 diabetes. While there is not yet a cure for the disease, advances in research have helped many diabetics to enjoy healthy and manageable lives. Still, type 1 diabetes comes with its share of challenges, as treating the disease requires constant attention and maintenance. In today’s Capital News, reporter Warren Henderson talks to a West Kelowna family about how they cope with their young son’s disease on a daily basis, and their hope that a cure will soon be found.

Dealing with a disease that has no cure Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

F

rom the moment he awakes each morning at his family’s home in West Kelowna, Rylan Sundstrom must follow a stringent routine. The seven-year-old begins his day by pricking his finger to test his blood sugar level. It’s an exercise he or his parents will repeat at least another six times over the next 24 hours.  Rylan also needs four to six insulin injections per day, usually self-administered on his abdomen, but also occasionally on his arms or legs. On top of it all, he must also follow a strict diet regimen, as his mom, Tiffany, carefully measures calories and carbohydrates for each meal, including two separate lunches for school. Such is the life of a young type 1 diabetic whose day—and that of his family’s—revolves around the maintenance and treatment of a disease which does not yet have a cure.  The Sundstroms have been living with Rylan’s condition for more than

One misconception she shared with many others was that the onset of the disease can be induced by a poor diet or unhealthy lifestyle. On the contrary, T1D is non-preventable. “Before this happened to Rylan, I used to be judgemental and say, ‘What are people doing? Are they feeding sugar to their kids?’ I’m so sorry for that,” she said. “Because when it happens to you, you realize it’s out of your control, there’s nothing you could have done as a parent. We’ve always eaten super healthy, well-balanced food. It was hard to accept.” Still, with more than a year having passed since his diagnosis, the Sundstroms—with the help of others—have learned how to both live with and manage Rylan’s T1D.  Good time management, patience and careful planning have all been beneficial in treating Rylan.   “We’re past feeling sorry for ourselves and have learned a new normal,” Tiffany explained.

More arrests at notorious drug house STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna RCMP were back at a “notorious” Glenmore drug house on High Road Tuesday evening where police cordoned off the block last spring to negotiate an arrest, guns drawn. During the first incident, Darryn Allen Nelson of Sicamous, was arrested along with an associate from Penticton who was simultaneously pulled over on Springfield Road. Nelson, nicknamed “Too Tall” for his lanky frame, had allegedly beaten an individual on his West Kelowna stoop, after going to his home to have a discussion.

Both he and his 24-year-old associate were described as dangerous prolific offenders, although the younger man, who was nabbed with methamphetamine in his car, was said to have nothing to do with the beating. With six months having passed, police were back in the High Road neighbourhood Tuesday evening, after pulling over a couple in a suspicious vehicle and finding it “loaded with drugs and money.” “The individuals led right back to the Glenmore drug house,” said Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP spokesman, noting the house is in the 1800-block of High Road.

Legion breakfast to kick off Poppy Campaign A morning breakfast on Oct. 25 will kick off the annual Poppy Campaign for the Royal Canadian Legion branch 26. The Legion branch is located at 1380 Bertram St. The cost is $5/person. For more information about the breakfast, contact Lynda Wachter, secretary/manager of branch 26, at 250-762-4177. To make a donation to the campaign, call 250-762-2961.

The vehicle was reported to police after being spotted in the back alley between Smithson High roads. When police arrived, they discovered the silver Ford sedan in question, with truck plates, and subsequently learned it was uninsured. “The female passenger was observed with American currency, which police believed to be counterfeit, and was arrested for possession of counterfeit currency,” said

Clark. Having seized several $20 and $50 bills with the same serial number, an RCMP target team used this evidence, in conjunction with information from an ongoing counterfeit currency investigation to secure a warrant for the drug house. The subsequent search turned up a number of items “believed to be associated to the production of counterfeit currency” and a 27-year-old man was arrested.

Lindsay Purdy, 26, has been charged with making counterfeit money, possession of counterfeit money and uttering counterfeit money (attempting to use it). Jesse McDonald, 27, is charged with uttering counterfeit money. The pair may face additional charges. Along with the money, police found a small quantity of crack cocaine and crystal meth in the vehicle in which Purdy was arrested.

LED Christmas lights are popular holiday lights due to their energy saving features and long bulb life. LEDs burn bright, and you will reduce your costs when choosing Christmas lights! The outdoor lights are available in two sizes C7 and C9 and are available as replacement bulbs to replace your existing lights in your light strands with LED bulbs as well as prebuilt complete strands of led lights. LEDs use much less electricity (only 4 watts for a 70-light string) and have a much greater lifespan than incandescent lamps. Since they are constructed from solid state materials and have no metallic filaments to burn out or break, LEDs are also much less susceptible to breakage from impact or rough handling. Christmas lights of this type do not suffer from color fading because the light is determined by the LED’s chip rather than the plastic lens. In addition, the plastic lens is much more durable than the glass envelope of incandescent bulbs Although LEDs themselves are long-life devices, older or lower-quality strands of LED-based Christmas lights can suffer from early failure. More detailed information on choosing LED lights can be found on the internet. For a selection of Commercial quality LED strands and replacement bulbs, please drop in to see us.

Council appointed Dr. Christian Brix as the newest member of the Accessibility Advisory Committee.

The drugs were not found and no murder weapon was ever located, he said. A consideration of all the issues, argued Watt, should lead to the jury to doubt Verma’s guilt. Verma is charged with first degree murder in the death of Irving.

The Crown alleged Verma had 140,000 reasons to want Irving gone, referring to the value of the drugs she was supposed to have that day, but there’s no evidence to show that Verma “suddenly came into a bunch of money,” said Watt.

Fortis execs paid well above average

To the editor: In a letter published in the Capital News on Sept. 10, FortisBC’s communications director, Joyce Wagenaar, claimed the public utility pays its executive incomes the industry median, however; according to FortisBC’s own reports this is not accurate. And as FortisBC’s CEO makes $1.36 million a year, almost three times that of BC Hydro’s CEO, this is not a minor issue. Wagenaar wrote, as she has in another newspaper, “Compensation for the executive and all company managers is evaluated by a third party, and set at the median.” Yet FortisBC documents to the BC Utilities Commission show that this is not the whole story. An August 2012 submission to the BCUC by FortisBC, cites the concern

B.C. marijuana referendum misguided

I

won’t be signing the “Sensible B.C.” petition to demand a province-wide referendum on marijuana enforcement. You shouldn’t either, and here are a few reasons why. Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for legalization and regulation of pot for 20 years, to conserve police resources and reduce violent crime. Our war on drugs is a failure even for heroin and cocaine, and marijuana is obviously much easier to produce. But the current effort led by Dana Larsen, B.C.’s clown prince of pot, is not only misguided, it’s dangerous. The petition does not propose legalization. It seeks to impose a provincial law that would stop B.C. police from

using any resources for simple possession charges. This would create a loophole in the federal drug law. So what would that do? It would protect Tom otherwise innocent cusFletcher tomers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving the criminal distribution business in place. For a closer look at that, I recommend reports from the Surrey Six murder trial now underway, or the upcoming case against three accused assassins of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna. Larsen’s loony law would tie police hands when they are trying to hold someone on a lesser charge while they search for evidence of something nasti-

VICTORIA VIEWS

er. This is a source of many simple possession charges today. Police chiefs have a different idea, asking for the option of treating simple possession as a ticket offence to keep the court time to a minimum. Both of these notions have the same obvious flaws. They don’t deal with sales to minors and they divert no revenue to government, leaving most of that in the hands of criminal dealers who buy cocaine, guns and fancy cars. Colorado and Washington have gone the legalization route, so far without interference from their federal government. These states need money, and they don’t need more crime or ill-considered hippy gesture politics. Meanwhile in Ottawa, Health Canada is trying to convert a poorly regulated mess of small-scale medical marijuana licences to a free-market system

of commercial producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used as fronts for larger grow-ops. Mission Coun. Dave Hensman predicted that when a grower gets a letter cancelling his licence, he’s more likely to roll up a big joint with it than to shut down. Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow suggested the response would echo an old Cheech and Chong routine: “Dave’s not here, man.” Here’s another reason not to support Larsen: The conduct of his organizers. One fellow set up a petition table at, of all places, the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam. After scrawling

LETTERS

A Tradition of Sound Advice

▼ ANTI-CHOICE LOBBY

Everyone has unique circumstances To the editor: I wanted to thank N. Taylor for speaking up about the anti-abortion protesters outside of Kelowna General Hospital. Having biked by them earlier that day it was fresh in my mind. The arguments (billboards) I read included: “MEN: It’s your baby too”, “Choose life, your mother did”, and “Your baby has a right to life.” These are all valid points, and none of them are incorrect. However, that does not give you the right to judge a woman before you even know what her unique situation is.

A woman is in an abusive relationship and was inseminated against her will, she has chosen to get help and leave him. She is alone, depressed and scared, without a home or career. She decides she cannot support a child in her present state because a child has a right to food and shelter, not to mention deserves a loving and safe home environment. This is just one of many circumstances, albeit a fairly extreme one. What if the woman has a disorder that will lead to her death and possibly that of her child’s as well? Now read those signs. How

would you feel? I am not saying I’m pro-abortion or anti-abortion. I am pro-choice. I feel that every human deserves the right to make their own decisions and should not be bombarded with negative judgement while trying to exercise that right. Please just have some compassion and maybe try other outlets for your belief. Try volunteering in an outreach program, give women options and education, not judgement. Leave the judgement to the powers that be. Erin Bailey, West Kelowna

‘Inflammatory’ terms used for anti-choice lobby To the editor: Regarding the letter from N. Taylor on Anti-abortionists using mean and painful bulling techniques in front of KGH. I would like to give the definition of bullying from the Merriam-Webster dictionary. “Bully-verb: to frighten, hurt, or threaten (a smaller or weaker person): to act like a bully toward (someone): To cause (someone) to do something by making threats or insults or by using force.” That is very different from people holding

signs expressing their views on the sanctity of the unborn but rather is an attempt to misuse the English language to slander a group who are legally and peacefully expressing their views on a very controversial subject. Does their picketing constitute mean and painful bulling? Not according to the dictionary and the law. The writer also uses the word harassment several times. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines Harassment: “1. to annoy or bother (someone) in a constant or repeated way. 2:

to make repeated attacks against (an enemy).” Again, using a very inflammatory word in a very wrong context.   So, are the anti-abortion demonstrators guilty of bullying and harassing those seeking abortions or is N. Taylor using very inflammatory and misleading words out of context to make her point? This misuse of the terms bullying and harassment is also an insult to those who do truly suffer from bulling and harassment in their lives. Murray Elliott, Kelowna

Park‘n rides would solve UBCO parking problem To the editor: The issue of UBCO parking is a problem easily resolved. It is not rocket science. Perhaps it is time for the surrounding cities, UBCO and BC Transit, working in partnership,

to create free park ’n ride parking lot(s) along Hwy 97. There are currently many empty and used lots along Hwy 97 that could be used for this purpose. Currently every student at UBCO pays for a Transit U-Pass, which is

included as a part of their tuition, whether they use transit or not. So why not take advantage of using something they have already paid for? For example, having students park in or around McCurdy Cor-

ners, along with additional transit frequency, gives them a nine minute ride to UBCO. Surely that makes better sense than having to pay the current parking fees, and it keeps cars off the campus and off the already busy Hwy 97 corri-

dor. When classes are finished, jump aboard transit and in under 10 minutes exit at your park ’n ride and then off to your home or job. J. Mainland, Kelowna

Why pay exec’s incentives for running a monopoly Executive Pay A8 that “Executive base salaries are above the 100 per cent target amount and the average compensation is above the average target median.” This is further substantiated by another FortisBC report. On page 851 of a Sept 2013 submission to the BCUC, FortisBC admitted, “Actual total cash is very competitive, with all FortisBC execu-

tives above market median” and “with all Shortterm Incentives above the 70th percentile.” Why this is important is because you’re paying for these exorbitant executive salaries. FortisBC is guaranteed a profit, no matter what it pays its CEO. And it’s not like FortisBC’s executives are compensated because they beat all their competitors—they don’t, as FortisBC doesn’t have

any. The company is a monopoly. Wagenaar can point to the fact FortisBC executives have a lower Longterm Incentive payment, but besides that not being good for a utility tying long-term performance to executive pay, that smaller long-term incentive is only paid for by shareholders, while the incredibly high short-term incentives are paid purely by ratepayers.

▼ MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Petition helpers embarrassing Fletcher from A10 “pot cures cancer” on the table, he proceeded to interrupt speeches by cancer survivors and the run itself by yelling the same false slogan. You can imagine how people with terminal cancer and their loved ones would react. Some would know that marijuana may alleviate side effects of

chemotherapy, just as it can ease suffering for some multiple sclerosis patients. But the suggestion of a cure is as cruel as it is moronic. Larsen’s “cannibus” has been rolling around B.C., reaping uncritical media coverage. It even blundered into the recent Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver, an event to mark the end of federal

hearings into the effects of residential schools on aboriginal children. I wouldn’t support the Larsen bunch for anything, unless it involved them looking for jobs. Just say no. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com. Twitter:@tomfletcherbc tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Clearly, Joyce Wagenaar misrepresented FortisBC in her letter, and in doing so, purposely or accidentally, underplayed the questionable high incomes of FortisBC executives. And not only are those executives earning above median incomes contrary to Mrs. Wagenaar’s comment, but they have grown substantially. Since 2006 the utility’s CEO has seen his total compensation in-

crease 154 per cent, from $534,659 in 2006 to $1.36 million in 2012. Considering FortisBC derives its monopoly from the government of British Columbia and is regulated to uphold the public interest, misleading people is something a public utility should not do.  Scott Ross, Kelowna

‘If you forget that one snack, it can be life-threatening’

TYPE 1 DIABETES FACTS:

• Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to derive energy from food. • People with T1D run the risk of dangerous high or low blood sugar levels, both of which can be life-threatening. • T1D is non-preventable. • Insulin is not a cure for T1D, but a treatment • T1D strikes both children and adults of any age. It comes on suddenly, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. • More than 300,000 Canadians live with type 1 diabetes • The rate of T1D incidence among children under the age of 14 is estimated to increase by three per cent annually worldwide.   • The life expectancy for people with T1D may be shortened by as much as 15 years. • JDRF is funding more than $6 million for research in B.C.

Cure from A3 “Anytime we want to go somewhere, we need to have a checklist and plan ahead. If you forget that one snack, it can be life-threatening. It’s just part of our lives now.” While Wes, Tiffany and Rylan’s sister, Aly, all take an active role in the day-to-day treatment of his condition, there are others the Sundstrom family count on for help.  The Sundstroms said the staff and students at Chief Tomat Elemen-

tary, where Rylan attends Grade 2, have been invaluable partners in caring for their son.  “Our school has been fabulous” she added. “We’re basically putting his life in their hands…he needs to be checked regularly. “Keeping a normal kid safe is hard enough, but this is a whole other story. They’ve just been wonderful.”  Unlike most kids his age, Rylan needs continuous supervision at events like field trips or birthday parties.

That’s why either Wes or Tiffany accompany Rylan to each and every one of his outings. “A good example is when one of his friends invited him to a birthday party, and when other parents are dropping their seven-year-olds off, I have to stay there with Rylan,” said Wes Sundstrom. “At parties, often all the kids are running around, and he has to be monitored closely when he’s physically active like that. So many things can affect his blood sugar, you have to be there.” 

As Rylan grows older, Wes and Tiffany Sundstrom say he will gradually gain more independence and will be able to live a relatively normal life, given his condition.   One person in Kelowna with T1D who can attest to a sustainable and happy existence is Doug Loepp.  Loepp, 43, was diagnosed with the disease 25 years ago. While his daily routine revolves around blood sugar tests, insulin injections and painstaking diet planning, he continues to function nor-

The Regional District of Central Okanagan is sponsoring a free tire collection program this fall where you can drop off old used passenger vehicle or transport tractor-trailer tires (no agricultural tires, please) with or without rims between 10 am and 3 pm on the following dates and locations :

mally at both work and life in general.  “I try to control it the best I can,” Loepp said. “Everyday is a little different, you’re eating different things, if you exercise or go for a hike, you have to adjust for that. “It’s a challenge sometimes, you always have to be aware of it, but it’s doable. Everybody is different, but I’ve had it now for 25 years and haven’t had any serious complications.” What Leopp, the Sundstroms and some 300,000 other Canadians ultimately hope to see is a cure for type 1 diabetes. The JDRF (formerly Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) will soon be announcing human clinical trials in a cure therapy. It’s the beginning of moving research out of the lab, where diabetes has already been cured in mice over 130 times. “There are amazing things happening in diabetes research right now and with research funding, we can move testing from the lab into human clinical trials,” said Pam Prentice, manager of fundraising and development for JDRF. “Our other focus is on prevention and treatment, to keep people as healthy as we can, so that when a cure is discovered, those with type 1 diabetes will be able to take full advantage of it.” For Rylan Sundstrom and hundreds of other type 1 diabetics in the valley, research is the key to making the next breakthrough discovery that will potentially change their lives.

The beats are about to pound in Vernon’s Kal Tire Place with the announcement of a concert by one of the hottest DJs on the planet, Steve Aoki, and other EDM/hip hop artists. The Nov. 21 concert is one of 30 across North America on the current Aokify America Tour, and features some of the freshest talent in the electronic and hip-hop music scene. Support acts include Israeli DJ/producer Borgore and hip hop artist Waka Flocka Flame, along with Botnet, a DJ/ production duo from Montreal. Together, they will

Now boasting more than six million views on YouTube, a vast fan base on social networks, and being featured on soundtracks for TV shows such as Skins, the dubstep artist now runs his own record label (Buygore) and tours the world, selling out shows across Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. Waka Flocka Flame didn’t want to be a rapper when he grew up. The Atlanta, Ga. native didn’t want to write hit songs, perform in front of thousands of people at packed clubs or hear his

songs played on radio stations across the country. But more than a year after bursting onto the scene with his debut single, O Let’s Do It, the rapper has managed to make more of an impact on the music industry than most hip hop artists have their entire lives. Thanks to a string of chart-topping singles, including the remix to O Let’s Do It, featuring Rick Ross and Diddy, and his latest hit, Hard In Da Paint, it looks like the Flame will keep burning. Straight from La Belle Province, Botnek’s unique style and productions take influence from electro house, rave and techno. The duo has already received sup-

port from David Guetta, Afrojack, A-Trak, Pete Tong and The Crystal Method as well as Aoki. Botnek won a remix competition for Dim Mak Records for Felix Cartal’s single Skeleton and has toured throughout Canada, the U.K. and Europe, playing alongside such artists as Jack Beats, Zinc, Buraka Som Sistema, SebastiAn and Style of Eye. Their second EP Sriracha & Beer was released last November on Aoki’s Dim Mak Records. Get tickets for the allages show at Kal Tire Place in Vernon online at www.zoobis.com or www.ticketseller.ca.

▼ CD REVIEWS

Farr stays in character as a ‘would-be rural country rebel’ TYLER FARR; REDNECK CRAZY (SONY) Tyler Farr is a new, young player on the USA country scene with this debut album that is selling very well. He comes by his western chops honestly as his father was the lead guitarist for George Jones’ touring band and young Tyler even went along with the crew when he was in his mid-teens. Farr has scored a semi-novelty hit with the title track Redneck Crazy which is an odd song for a few reasons. First of all, the song isn’t ‘crazy’ but rather a ballad about lost love.

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell And Farr also plays a bit of a confused Hamlet role where he is parked on the front lawn of his ex’s house watching shadows on the curtains as she embraces her new lover. In his lyrics Farr warns that he is about to go ape s&*t but all he does is sit there at 3 a.m. and fume over his lost love—which seems fairly reasoned rather than redneck crazy.

On the rest of this disc Farr isn’t any more credible but he always stays in character as a wouldbe rural country rebel. His self-penned songs are about backwoods bush parties for two and sundry “rural route rocking” while he manages to get drunk without booze just by looking at his pretty girlfriend. On the silly glorification of country blue collar life with Cowgirl (that’s all that he needs) Farr brags that “he don’t need no nest egg for a rainy day” which may be the most redneck crazy statement on this whole album. The album closer Living With The Blues is a

mournful weeper with just Farr and guitar about more lost loves etc. but, hey, there’s no crying in redneck land. C

TONY BENNETT; LIVE AT THE SAHARA: LAS VEGAS 1964 (COLUMBIA) A couple of years ago Tony Bennett’s label released a 75+ disc boxed set that included all his albums with individual mock up album covers along with live DVDs and some discs of outtakes. You have got to be an enormously, massive uber-fan to want that much Tony Bennett but this new single disc Vegas concert is making its

debut as a stand alone CD for the very first time. Live At The Sahara: Las Vegas, 1964 was a part of that huge box set but the original tapes were recorded nearly fifty years ago for a concert album that was shelved and is only now available for those who don’t want the over-sized box set. I’ll bet this concert gig was put aside way back when because of the Beatles led British Invasion and the unlikelihood that Bennett would sell very well. Anyway, this is an interesting document of the times. Bennett rips through 24 tunes in less than an hour as was the trend at

the times re: get the suckers in for a quick show and then direct them to the gambling rooms. Anyway, Bennett offers many Broadway show tunes that clock in at around the two minute or less mark with evergreens like This Could Be The Start Of Something Big, Chicago (That Toddling Town), Lullaby Of Broadway, Mam’selle, (the mob classic) Rags To Riches, and of course Bennett’s biggest hit (I Left My Heart In) San Francisco. There is a five minute “comedy routine” with Milton Berle, Danny Thomas (best forgotten) and Mickey Rooney that doesn’t have a shred of humour but the punt-

ers at least got to see some “stars” before losing their wages at the gambling tables. Bennett sounds okay here but far too often insincere, rushed facile re: his loopy 55 second version of Firefly. But when he settles down with just his piano led trio as on Once Upon A Time and Ain’t Misbehavin’, he comes across as more than just a shill. C+

Haim sisters on their way

Mitchell from A13

Sound of 2013 Award by the BBC—the first female group in Brit pop history to do so. Haim continued their string of successes with a sold out tour and a noted performance at the huge Glastonbury festival while Haim also went on to tour with Ke$ha whom they are destined to outstrip for future fame. Anyway, Days Are Gone is Haim’s debut album in N. America and four of the five songs from their breakthrough Brit EP are included on this eleven track album. The aforementioned song Don’t Save Me has definite nods of influence to Joni Mitchell while their sound is polished but still carries over a blend of indie-synth-pop with production help by Ariel Rechtshaid of Usher and Vampire Weekend Fame. This first album is getting a lot of push by its

Este (guitar, bass), Danielle (vocals, guitar) and Alana (keyboards, guitar) who grew up in southern California and learned their musical chops while playing as children in their family’s cover band named Rockinghaim. Este went on to study music at UCLA while her sister Danielle became a capable enough musician to play with Julian Casablancas on his solo tour away from The Strokes. The three sisters threw their lot in together to start writing songs and were soon discovered at the SXSW festival in Texas and they were signed by the British label Polydor. In the U.K. Haim released a five song EP (extended play) that got rave reviews and earned the gals a hit with the song Don’t Save Me and they went on to win The

label and the big hype from their U.K. fame but to my ears Haim is more of a band to watch than a bona fide sure-fire hit in America which is odd as USA pop music via Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks and a lot of soul/pop defines Haim’s sound. Some of the material sounds a bit too samey while the sisters voices are serviceable if not spectacular. Feature tracks if you go by the add-on sticker to the liner include the slightly funky pop of Falling and Forever along with the electro demo (synth hand clapping) of

▼ MOVIE

The Wire and the much hookier Don’t Save Me. The ladies stretch out a bit with the moderately grimy Let Me Go with its hints of White Stripes and the closing dream pop ballad of Running If You Call My Name which is the only track to feature a pedal steel guitar. I think I come across as a little underwhelmed by this debut Haim release but I love to be proved wrong. Maybe Haim will become just as huge in their native land than in Britain.

New ‘bike box’ street markings make it safer for cyclists

The first on-street “bike box” in Kelowna has been installed at the intersection of Richter Street and Sutherland Avenue. Bike boxes are used at intersections to designate a space for cyclists to wait at red lights and safely clear the intersection ahead of cars. The bike box is indicated by a square green area and bike symbol on the pavement in front of the white vehicle stop line. The intersection of Richter and Sutherland was outfitted with the new markings earlier this week, and a second intersection, at Bernard Avenue and Richter Street, is expected to be completed this fall. While the markings are new in Kelowna, they are common in other cycling communities such as Vancouver, Surrey, Ed-

THE FIRST on-street “bike box” in Kelowna located at the corner of Richter Street and Sutherland Avenue. monton and Ottawa. “It might take people some time to learn about them and adjust to the new arrangement, but we want people to ‘get behind the box’ and help make

our streets safer for cyclists and other roadway users” said Mahesh Tripathi, traffic engineering technician with the city. The new bike boxes will change how driv-

ers and cyclists navigate through the intersection at Richter and Sutherland. Motorists must stop behind the green bike box on red lights. Right turns on red will not be permitted at intersections with bike boxes. Cyclists will move into the green bike box on a red light, providing riders with a safer position to turn left. When the light turns green, motorists and cyclists may move through the intersection as usual, with cyclists going first. Motorists turning right on a green will follow regular traffic rules by signalling and watching for cyclists to the right, the same as with any curb-side bike lane. Along with bike boxes, new technology is being tested on traffic signals to detect cyclists. “Our existing video

detection system is only programmed to detect vehicles waiting at a red light,” said Atif Khan, traffic signals and systems supervisor with the city. “We are testing new software that will also detect cyclists waiting at the intersection. This technology, paired with the green bike boxes, will make it a lot more convenient, faster and safer for cyclists to travel.” Motorists are being advised to always drive

aware of what and who is around them and share the road with cyclists. The city says bike boxes significantly increase the visibility of cyclists at intersections, helping to avoid collisions and improving road safety for everyone. “If everyone is predictable and abides by traffic rules, it significantly reduces the risk of an accident,” said Tripathi. “We’re going to see more residents taking

to the streets by bicycle as well as more pedestrians as our city and region continue to grow. When everyone is aware of others, we all make it to and from our destinations safely.” Resources on cycling road markings and signals are available at kelowna. ca/transportation, under the cycling section. For more information on cycling initiatives in the Cent ral Okanagan, go to smartTRIPS.ca.

Giving thanks for the joy and abundance of our city

W

hile looking forward to Thanksgiving, I’ve been pondering how grateful I am to have been born in Kelowna and

lived here most of my life. This valley is filled with abundance. It has a great climate to live in and we can grow most of our food.

Our family had a quarter acre vegetable garden. Canned and frozen produce lasted us until the garden began producing the next year. All four children helped. We all grew up to be gardeners.

Kelowna was small and very much an agricultural community. The Capri Mall was a pear orchard. There was a pig farm at the intersection of Sutherland and Burtch. Rutland was a separate community of orchards and farms. The fascinating pictures of fruit box labels on electrical boxes around town gives a sample of the names of many old packing houses. The present Cultural District was filled with packing houses, including the Rowcliffe Cannery. I think they canned tomatoes among other things. As well as fruit, lots of vegetables were grown to be shipped to other places. Produce was loaded into freight cars that were barged down the lake to Penticton to join up with the railway. Things have changed dramatically since the 1950s. Much good farmland has been covered with houses, roads, parking lots, shopping malls and industrial buildings.

With cheap transportation we have come to expect to eat fresh produce, like strawberries, all year round. Most of our food is imported. Public and government support for local agriculture has diminished. Fortunately the Agricultural Land Reserve was created in the 1970s. Without this all the arable land would likely have been sold and built on. As transportation costs increase and water becomes scarce for growing crops in places like California, imported produce will become very expensive or unavailable just as it was when I was a child. Now is the time to make sure our farmland is preserved, programs are created to help young farmers get started, and older farmers get support to make their farms more efficient. We need to prepare for the future by creating and supporting strong local food production now. I am grateful to see signs of change. D.A.

NOTICE OF DISCONTINUANCE OF A RAILWAY LINE The Okanagan South Subdivision in the Province of British Columbia, described in more detail below (hereinafter the “Railway Line”), was transferred to Kelowna Pacific Railway Ltd. By reason of the instrument by which it was transferred, the Railway Line was returned to Canadian National Railway Company (CN) on August 23, 2013. In accordance with subsection 146.01 (1) of the Canada Transportation Act (“Act”), CN will follow the process set out in sections 143 to 145 of the Act.

Our large farmer’s market makes fresh local produce more readily available and connects buyers to farmers. Some schools have gardens. Children love to grow their own food. Recently, I’ve been excited to see a substantial increase in vegetable gardening, especially among younger generations. From a xeriscaping perspective, a vegetable garden is an excellent alternative to lawn and water-thirsty ornamentals. It does need water but with good soil, drip irrigation and a layer of mulch to hold in the moisture, the water is used efficiently and it provides the gardener with healthy, ‘free’ food. ••• My next Introduction to Xeriscape class is Thursday, Oct. 17 and 24 from 7 to 9 p.m. The class has practical information for making changes to an existing landscape or to create a new landscape. Details and registration information are at www.okanaganxeriscape.org. Gwen Steele is executive director of the Okanagan Xeriscape Association.

DEFENSIVE back Brennan Van Nistelrooy (right) and the Okanagan Sun will battle Nathan Lund and the Langley Rams Sunday at the Apple Bowl in BCFC playoff action. is convinced his club is playing its best football of 2013 heading into the postseason. And while much of their success is a direct result of execution on the field, Beatty points to the team’s growing chemistry as a key to the Sun’s solid and consistent play of late. “I think the guys are really comfy at home and they’re going to enjoy going into this challenge together this weekend,” said Beatty. “They’ve really come together as a family and are feeding off each other. Our eight graduating players have been great leaders on this

same ice Friday night. “We’ve only watched Barzal on tape but the talk that has been around him is he is a very dynamic player and I think he has shown that he can step in as a 16-year-old and have an impact,” said Huska. “We are seeing the same with Nick, where he is gaining confidence daily and we’re seeing it in his offensive ability. But he’s been very good away from the puck as well. The one thing with Nick is his skating. When he is moving his feet he’s involved and around the puck. He’s an intelligent player.” While Merkley has five goals and three assists in the Rockets first seven games, Barzal has three goals and nine helpers in his first eight games to lead Seattle in scoring with 12 points. Both clubs are also off to good starts as the Rockets (5-1-0-1) and Seattle (6-2-0-0) are within a point of each other. It’s the first game of a four game homestand for the Rockets who also play Oct. 16, 19 and 22.

In the end, Okanagan hung on for 29-28 victory but learned a tough lesson about Langley and big leads in the process. “We got off to a great start and proved we could compete with them,” said Sun defensive back Brennan Van Nistelrooy. “Then we let our foot off the gas. Clearly, they’re too good of a team to sit back against, so hopefully we won’t make that mistake again. We’ll need to play 60 minutes of football against them.” In drubbing their opponents by a combined score of 142-0 over the final three weeks of the regular season, Beatty

GREYSTOKE PHOTOGRAPHY/CONTRIBUTED

Two summers ago, when the Kelowna Rockets snared rookie Nick Merkley in the annual Western Hockey League bantam draft, the Rockets hoped they were getting a talented centre who would be able to make an impact in the WHL. And just two weeks into his rookie WHL season, Merkley is doing just that after a week that saw the Calgary native win both the WHL and the CHL Player of the Week honours after posting six points in three games. Eight picks before the Rockets selected Merkley with the ninth overall pick in the 2012 WHL bantam draft, the Seattle Thunderbirds had chosen a top prospect of their own, picking highly rated Mathew Barzal with the first overall pick. Tonight the two 16-year-olds will go headto-head in the WHL for the first time as Merkley and the Rockets are set to host Barzal and the Thunderbirds in the Rockets lone game of the weekend. Merkley and Barzal have both been as-advertised early in their WHL careers as the rookies have both been among their team’s top producers and Rockets’ head coach Ryan Huska said it will be exciting to see them on the

With the conference’s hottest defense and B.C. junior football’s most explosive offense on a collision course, Shane Beatty is expecting some fireworks to ensue on Sunday afternoon at the Apple Bowl. The Okanagan Sun, which allowed just 128 points all year and pitched three shutouts to close out the regular season, will host the defending champion Langley Rams in the BCFC semifinal. Led by quarterback Jahlani Gilbert-Knorren (12 touchdowns, 571 yards rushing), the quickstrike Rams’ offense averaged a conference-best 44 points per game during the 2013 season. “They hold the edge in offense…we hold the edge in defence,” said Sun head coach Shane Beatty. “We have some things in store for them and we’ll be well prepared. I’m sure they have some things planned, too. It should be a great game.” There was plenty of intrigue during the only meeting of the regular season between the clubs on Aug. 24 at the Apple Bowl. The Sun sprinted out to a 29-0 lead, only to see the Rams erupt for four unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Goalie Porter joins Warriors Off to the best start in West Kelowna Warriors history, (8-2-0-1) head coach Rylan Ferster hasn’t stopped thinking about the future and this week moved to solidify the Warriors goaltending position for years down the road. West Kelowna’s head coach/GM has added

16-year-old goalie Cody Porter to the Warriors roster, and dealt back-up Tanner Burgardt to Weyburn of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Porter, a Vancouver native who spent the past two seasons with the Pursuit of Excellence in Lake Country, had begun the 2013-14 season with the

Vancouver NW Giants of the BCMML. “Cody’s a very good young goalie,” said Ferster. “I think he’s going to be an outstanding player in our league. In camp he was one of our best goalies, if not our best one.” After failing to crack the Warriors roster our of training camp, Porter

went back to his home in the Lower Mainland to play in the BCMML. It wasn’t long however before Ferster decided to bring the 6-foot-1, 180 pound ‘tender back into the Warriors fold as a back-up to 19-year-old starter Andy Desautels See Warriors A19

Local skaters dominate pre-novice class Seventeen Kelowna skaters traveled to Regina to compete at the 2013 Sask Skate Invitational and Sask Open competitions last weekend. Posting strong results against top skater from B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan at the Sask Skate Invitational and Open competitions. A highlight at the Invitational competition occurred in Pre-Novice Women, as two Kelowna skaters dominated the field. Twelve year-old Ajsha Gorman placed first in the short program and second in in the free skate to finish first place overall. Mckenna Colthorp, also 12, was right next to Gorman winning the free skate after placing third in the short program to finish with the silver medal. In the Juvenile Women U-11 division, Olivia Gran, 10, skated a flawless program to take the gold medal by a com-

manding margin. In Juvenile Men U14, Dreyton Nelmes took the bronze. At the Pre-Juvenile level, Kelowna’s Maya Rose also skated to a bronze medal finish. On the boys’ side, seven-year-old Carson Consiglio skated to a second place finish despite competing in the U-14 division. Much success was also had at the Sask Open event as many more medals were captured by the Kelowna contingent. Local skaters nearly swept the gold medals in their respective groups of Pre-Juvenile U11 Women, as Alyssa Dobbs and Mikayla Consiglio won gold in groups 2 and 3, while Alexis Garost won silver in group 1. At the Pre-Novice level, Rochelle Reeve took first place honours in group 1, while club mate Madison Delcourt

Deck earns honour of PACWEST Player of the Year

An incredible display of consistency on the golf course has led to fourth year UBC Okanagan golfer Will Deck of Kelowna being named PACWEST Golfer of the Year. Deck claimed the final of three PACWEST tournaments last weekend in Chilliwack, firing a two day total of 144 to win the tournament and claim the PACWEST Golfer of the Year title. The result was good D enough to pass Fraser Valley’s Darren Whitehouse for the player of the year honour. “[The Player of the year] was an awesome way too cap off a very solid year,” said Deck, who had to wait for Whitehouse to finish his round oto find out who would win oPlayer of the Year. n “To be honest I had no idea that it was even close. e

HEAT ATHLETICS/CONTRIBUTED

UBC OKANAGAN golfer Will Deck capped off a

stellar season by winning the PACWEST Player of the Year honours.

I only found out when the final group came in that I had a shot at the number one spot and then from then on I just watched the scoreboard to see if it was official.” Deck shot 73-71 at Chilliwack, continuing his assault on B.C. golf courses. Deck has shot 72 or better in 10 of his last 25 rounds and only once shot higher than 77 during that time. Last weekend in Chilliwack, Deck trailed heading into day two, but got his round started early with a couple birdies, cruising to a closing 71 before waiting for the other leaders to finish. “You just want to give yourself as many opportunities as possible on Sunday,” said Deck. “In golf no lead is safe and all I wanted to do was get off to a good start today

this year and likely a starter down the road. “You never want to look too far ahead” Ferster cautioned. “But we feel that our goaltending is covered, hopefully, for the next two to three years.” For his part, Porter admits that he’s excited for the new opportunity in front of him. “I’m really excited, it’s a big opportunity especially as a 16-year-old to be able to play here. I’m really looking forward to it. “I’m happy but not satisfied. I want to play well up here and show that I can play.” To make room for Porter, Ferster had to move Burgardt to the SJHL’s Weyburn Red Wings in exchange for future considerations. The 18-year old Saskatchewan native hadn’t yet faced any game action as a Warrior. “We certainly wish

him all the very best,” Ferster says of Burgardt. “Deals are never fun. Hopefully things work out for him.” After losing the first

two games the BCHL season, the Warriors haven’t lost in regulation since, winning eight times and losing once in overtime to sit in first place overall in

the BCHL. This weekend the Warriors are back at home, hosting Merritt on Friday night and Prince George on Saturday night at Royal LePage Place.

[Sunday] and I managed to do just that by birdieing the first two holes of the round. It really takes a lot of pressure off you and frees up your game which is essential to playing well.” Both the men’s and the women’s Heat golf teams finished in third place overall to capture bronze medals. Other men’s team

placings included Salmon Arm’s Cody Bell who was eighth while Kelowna golfer’s James Casorso and Michael Lee tied for 20th overall. In Heat women’s individual play Carolyn Lee (1st year, Calgary, AB) just missed the podium, finishing in fourth, one stroke out of third place. Teammate Kelsey McGil-

lis (1st year, Calgary, AB) finished 11th. Deck will make his way to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national championships at the Royal Quebec Golf Club just outside of Quebec City, QB hosted by St. Lawrence College on October 15-18.

OGC adds acrobatic gymnastics The Okanagan Gymnastics Centre is now home to four disciplines of gymnastics. The newest discipline at the Kelowna-based gym is acrobatic gymnastics. This type of gymnastics combines tumbling and artistic dance

with static and dynamic lifts. The sport requires strength, flexibility, musicality and a camaraderie partnership. There are different styles of teams from women’s, men’s pairs or mixed pairs, or groups with women’s trio or

men’s quad. Shawna Peters is the acrobatic gymnastics coach at Okanagan Gymnastics and has a competitive team of approximately 20 athletes. Within this group there are athletes competing from level 6 to level 10. Each pair or group will compete specifically choreographed routines to their team’s choice of instrumental music. At the highest levels, the athletes compete three different routines. There is a balance routine which requires the athletes to show great strength and hold their formations. The dynamic routine requires the athletes

to perform more powerful routines with tumbling and explosive lifts and tosses. Finally they perform a combined routine where they must show a combination of static and balance movements with the flight skills of a dynamic routine. Jackson Peters and Shaylyn To plan to compete in the level 10 category this year where they will be required to perform these three routines. They have high hopes and ambitions to qualify for World Age Group Championships which will be held in France in 2014. Madison Arnold and Brooke Gray plan to compete level 9 this season.

This level requires the girls to perform two routines being the balance and dynamic routines. Cody Lees and Leah Ryder plan to compete in level 8 mixed pair this season. Ellen Bradford and

Sadie Mamchur also plan to compete in the level 8 category but in the women’s pair 11 to 16 age group. These ladies are eligible to qualify to attend World Age Groups as well. Chelsea Ozechowski

will be competing in the women’s pair competition with a pending new partner. Hopefully this pair will be competing in the level 6 or 7 competition.

t higher elevations around the Okanagan Valley, the mornings are crisp and frosty now. So, camped beside a high elevation lake last week, we were treated to a spectacular dawn as the cold rain and slush that fell overnight created silky scarves of mist across the warmer water in the pre-dawn. When the sun did push its way through the fog bank in the east, it washed evergreens and already-colourful deciduous trees in gold and highlighted the orangey leaves of the maples across the lake. A loon cruised the still waters, moving in and out of the wreathes of mist rising from the sunwarmed waters, and letting loose with that eerie call that is the quintessential sound of a wilderness fishing lake. Well, except for the slap of fishing jumping, and there was that too. Autumn in the Okanagan is a beautiful time of year, but then so is winter, spring and summer too.

JUDIE STEEVES/CAPITAL NEWS

MIST AT it dawn is common in autumn on upland lakes where the water is still warmer than the frosty air. I remember when I graduated from high school and had to move from the Okanagan to the coast to continue my education. I discovered there weren’t really four seasons there, except perhaps for the length of day— and I missed them—all of them. It makes me appreciate having to don warmer clothes and put on the heater at this time of year. Flurries of falling leaves and the rustle and crunch of them underfoot are more reasons to appreciate this time of year. It’s a wonderful time for hiking, fishing and hunting and just being

outdoors. The provincial government has come out with a fascinating new tool for all outdoors enthusiasts and business people, called iMaps. It’s free and provides customized maps at any scale so the user can zoom in on specific areas in a zone and provide a wide variety of information, from boundaries of Wildlife Management Units to parks and protected areas; from fish, wildlife and plant species to geographical names. Digital files with LEH and MU boundaries are available to the public through the Integrated Land Management Bur-

eau’s iMap site and they can be integrated into Google Earth and downloaded onto handheld GPS units, or printed for a hard copy in the field. There’s a tutorial available on the site for those not familiar with the software. It’s available at: http:// maps.gov.bc.ca/ess/sv/ imapbc/ At times, new technology can be a wondrous thing… But, forget it and get outside and enjoy autumn.

Fruit growers to consider governance changes Dr. Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

As the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association edges closer to its 125th year, the executive is proposing a number of changes in its governance structure which president Jeet Dukhia says would make it more democratic. Growers are being invited to a special general meeting of the BCFGA Nov. 4, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Ramada conference centre in Kelow-

Jeet Dukhia na to discuss several proposed changes. At present there are about 540 members of the

grower lobby group, but Dukhia remembers there being 1,500 to 1,700, 20 years ago. With decreased numbers of growers, one of the proposals is to reduce the four regions to two, north and south, which would align the association with the B.C. Tree Fruits Co-operative, which also elects representatives from the north and south. The division would be at Peachland, with growers in that community part of the north.

As well, instead of directors being elected for a one-year term, the executive is proposing twoyear staggered terms, with some elected every year. Dukhia said they would also like to get a feeling from growers about getting rid of the delegate system and moving to a general vote of all members on all resolutions. Currently only delegates elected from the four regions are eligible to vote on business, although all members vote on election

of the executive members. Another proposal is that the son, daughter or spouse of the orchard owner be delegated the right to vote for the owner, and another is that annual general meetings no longer be held in January but in late February when Okanagan roads should be in better condition to allow all members to attend. Dukhia said to celebrate the BCFGA’s 125th anniversary next year, the Canadian Horticultur-

al Council will hold its agm here in Kelowna in March. That will bring about 500 delegates from various farm commod-

ity groups from across the country to the Okanagan, he said. He is a director of the CHC. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

BCUOMA is a not-for-profit organization that encourages British Columbians to responsibly recycle used oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers. Since the launch of the program in 2003, British Columbians have done an exceptional job of recycling their used oil materials.

BCUOMA is expanding its successful ambassador program this summer – with two teams of ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling. By recycling your used oil and antifreeze products, you’re playing an important role in preserving our environment for future generations.

This is truly a winter get-away designed with you in mind including 7 nights in beach front property and daily outings to all major attractions so pack away that snow shovel and join us for 14 days of MARK BOSTER/CONTRIBUTOR

Stark beauty deep in Navajo country Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park: Zane Grey knew how to make an entrance, or at least how to describe one. As the famous Western writer liked to tell the story, he was on horseback in 1913, riding deep into Navajo country, when a flash lighted up the desert. That flash, Grey wrote, “revealed a vast valley, a strange world of colossal shafts and buttes of rock, magnificently sculptured, standing isolated and aloof, dark, weird, lonely.” Grey had found his way to Monument Valley, before John Ford and John Wayne showed up to make Stagecoach and before all those other makers of movies and television and marketers of cars and cigarettes made the buttes a symbol of the Wild West. Even if you suspect poetic license in the timing of that lightning bolt, the man saw the valley raw. Thinking of him last month, I rose before sunrise in a hotel on the Arizona-Utah border, drove to a parking lot and hiked down Wildcat Trail into the heart of Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. Mark Boster, the photographer who has been revisiting Western icons with me the last several months, had set up on high ground, so I was alone.

There was a scent of wet sage, almost no sound but the wind. Then the sun rose, the mesas blazed and dead ahead, the towering West Mitten Butte jumped from pre-dawn obscurity into silhouette. It was tremendous. Only for a moment did I wonder if this was where Chevy Chase crashed the Griswold family station wagon in National Lampoon’s Vacation. Monument Valley is part of the Navajo Nation reservation, a 640-mile drive from Los Angeles, 175 miles northeast of Flagstaff, Ariz., about 25 miles north of the sleepy town of Kayenta. The valley’s most famous mesas, buttes and spires stand within the boundaries of

the tribal park. And you, my fellow Americans, should go to see them. Why? Because it’s embarrassing to stand in the middle of such stark beauty and realize that most of the other tourists are speaking French, German, Italian, Japanese or Chinese. You should know, however, that this is no national park. Instead of the National Park Service infrastructure, you will find a 17-mile dirt road looping around the valley’s most admired landmarks, a dozen or more jewelry and souvenir stands, two hotels in the immediate neighbourhood, and no alcohol on their menus. To leave the loop road,

you must hire a Navajo guide. You may notice a weather-beaten trailer, perhaps neighboured by a rounded earthen mound. These are private homes and traditional hogans, without electricity or running water, that house a handful of Navajo families that date back here for generations. Many of them make their living from tourists, but most don’t want a paved road inside the park because then too many would come. And then there’s the uranium. From the 1940s to the 1960s, with the approval of U.S. and Navajo leaders, mining companies extracted tons of ore here to fuel U.S. nuclear programs. Then they

abandoned the sites, including Skyline Mine on the valley’s Oljato Mesa. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency found lingering elevated radiation at Skyline and in 2011 completed an $8-million cleanup, but elsewhere in Navajo country hundreds of abandoned mines await remediation. A tourist might see none of this, but locals know all about it. So the valley is complicated. But it’s also plainly spectacular, beginning with the approach up U.S. Highway 163. You snap to attention at the sight of angular Agathla, aka El Capitan, first of the buttes, looming like a stairway to the stratosphere. Soon after comes Sentinel Mesa, a sort of Greek Acropolis, if the Acropolis were swaddled in orange by Christo. Most tourists stay a day or two. We stayed four, circled the valley alone and with a guide, under blue skies and gray. We paid respects to Rain God Mesa, the Thumb, Gray Whiskers, the Hub and the Cube; ate enough fry bread to last a lifetime; and stood among the tripod people at sunset, lining up the Mitten buttes with the same boulders that Ansel Adams used in 1950. Then one afternoon, a roar filled the valley and the clouds burst. Mon-

TRAVEL Monument from A26 Cly, died. He was struck by lightning, she told us. Right here at John Ford’s Point. On an August day in 2006. We told her how sorry we were, looked at the dirt, looked at the sky, looked at the memorial marker that stands nearby. Then we made another loop through all that harsh beauty.

TIMELINE:

Wind, Water, Migration, Movies About 50 million years ago: Wind and water start shaping Monument Valley. Before 1400: The Anasazi occupy Monument Valley and build many cliff dwellings and food-storage sites. Then they vanish. After 1400: The Dine take up residence in and around Monument Valley. Other native tribes take to calling them the Navajo. 1863: The U.S. government orders the relocation of all Navajos to a reservation at Ft. Sumner in Bosque Redondo, N.M. 1868: A larger Navajo reservation is established, 7and an 1884 expansion in-

cludes Monument Valley. Eventually the reservation, also known as the Navajo Nation, includes about 27,000 square miles of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. 1925: Harry Goulding and his wife, Leone, establish a trading post near the northwest rim of the valley. 1938: Eager to bring money to the Depression-ravaged valley, Harry Goulding goes to Hollywood bearing photos of Monument Valley and bluffs his way into a meeting with famed director John Ford. Soon afterward, Ford’s cast and crew arrive in the valley to make Stagecoach. 1939: Stagecoach revives the western genre. Ford goes on to make numerous movies in the valley; the last is Cheyenne Spring (1963). Early 1940s: Uranium mining begins on Oljato Mesa at the western edge of the valley and continues into the 1960s, leaving a legacy of elevated radiation, pollution and controversy. 1958: The Navajo Tribal Council establishes Monument Valley as a tribal park. 1969: Peter Fonda leads the cast of Easy Rid-

er through the valley. 1983: In National Lampoon’s Vacation, Chevy Chase crashes the family station wagon in the valley. 1991: With the law in hot pursuit, Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon race through the valley in Thelma & Louise. 2000: PBS airs The Return of Navajo Boy, a documentary that ties a Monument Valley family’s health problems to nearby uranium mining. 2008: The View Hotel opens, the first hotel inside the tribal park. It’s owned by the Navajo tribe and managed by a Navajo family. 2011: An $8-million Environmental Protection Agency cleanup is completed at the Skyline uranium mine, less than two miles from Goulding’s Lodge. 2012: Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, now 91,696 acres, reports 422,932 visitors. 2013: Johnny Depp, playing Tonto in a remake of The Lone Ranger, sits astride a white horse at John Ford’s Point in the valley.

MOTORING

Like a fine wine, Toyota Camry simply gets better with age Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

The Toyota Camry just keeps getting better with age. Now in its sixth generation, the Camry has long been one of the top-selling mid-size sedans in North America. It had a major restyle in 2012 with a bolder design and improved handling so the 2013 model is relatively unchanged except for upgraded features like a standard back-up camera and a new “value package.” For 2013, the Camry is offered in a choice of seven models with three powertrain options and prices ranging from $23,700 to $34,275. Our tester came in XLE trim with a 178 hp 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, priced at $30,470. This level has premium finishes like leather seating (heated in front), leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, rear seat reading lamps and a push button smart key system. New this year on the XLE is a blind spot

monitor and anti-theft system. The base Camry for 2013 is the LE, starting at $23,700. It features the same 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and the choice of three upgrade packages including the new “value package” that includes 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels with all-season tires a power sliding moonroof and electro-chromic rearview mirror. This model is also available with a leather package and heated front seats. Next up is the SE ($26,985) that adds 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a full skirt package, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, fog lamps and more. Leather and a moonroof package are the major options. For those who want a bit more performance from their vehicle, the SE and XLE are also available with a 268 hp V6 engine. The SE V6 ($29,740) has an available premium package with an upgraded audio system, heated front seats and the blind spot monitor.

LORNE DRURY/CONTRIBUTOR

THE CAMRY (XLE model shown here) for 2013 has few changes from 2012 when it got a major overhaul. The main difference this year is the addition of features added as standard fare, such as a rear view back-up camera. Meanwhile the XLE V6 ($34,275) includes a 10-speaker JBL audio system with integrated satellite radio, a navigation system and dual-zone automatic climate control are among the additional standard features. The Camry also comes in two gas-electric hybrid models, the Hybrid

LE ($27,710) that I reviewed earlier this model year and the Hybrid XLE ($29,235). Our tester this time around came with the 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that is peppy and fuel-efficient. Unless you have a full complement of passengers and a heavy load

in the trunk, it’s unlikely you’ll ever find the need for more power. But for those who do crave more performance, there’s the V6 engine available. During our time with the Camry we averaged about 6.8L/100 km in mostly highway driving. While it is no sports sedan, the Camry handles

well, although the electric power steering is a bit light for my taste. Every time I climb inside a Camry I’m struck by the spaciousness of the interior and just how each new model is better than the previous one. This spaciousness and the level of comfort may help explain the popular-

ity of the Camry that continues to sell in big numbers. Just this September, sales of the Camry in Canada jumped 49.4 per cent over the same month last year to 1,756 units. The back seat area is generous with room for three adults. Interior materials are improved over previous versions but there is still a lot of hard plastic used. The leather seats in the XLE model give the car a more upscale feel. A 6.1-inch touch screen for the audio is prominent on the centre stack and displays the rear view picture when reverse is selected. The 60-40 split rear seats fold down to add more cargo space to the 436 litres in the trunk. The new Camry is more stylish than previous generations, but still a tad conservative looking when compared with mid-size sedans like the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata and even the restyled Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. This is a car that appeals to an older demo-

MOTORING ▼ PROSCHE

A plethora of Panameras Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

PORTLAND, OR: Making a decision to buy a Porsche Panamera just got a whole lot harder. With the introduction of the S E-Hybrid, the Turbo Executive and the S, there are now nine Panameras to choose from with yet two more coming in the spring. From a handful of models a decade ago, Porsche is now bursting at the seams with the iconic 911 in a myriad of trims, Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne and a new compact luxury crossover called the Mecan debuting in a month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Panamera that looked like a huge gamble when it was unveiled in 2009 at the Shanghai Motor Show was anything but a toss of the dice. Buyers have lined up around the globe to get their hands on this four-door Porsche. The three new additions are aimed at three very difference demographics, starting with the Turbo Executive at $184,100. The Executive has a 5.9 in. longer wheelbase, all of which goes into the cabin to create two rear seats where the passengers can really stretch their legs. Designed for markets such as China where the owner sits in the back and has someone doing

the driving, the rear centre console has individual climate controls and seat heating/cooling adjusts. It also has the most powerful engine, a 4.8-litre turbo V8 with 520 hp and no less than 568 lb/ft of torque all with standard Porsche permanent all-wheel-drive and a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. Acceleration time from 0-60 mph is just 4.0 seconds. Surrounded by the finest leathers, you twist the ignition key followed by a glorious, full-throated V8 rumble from the tailpipes before moving off with a liquid burble noise. It is indecently fast, made even more so with a touch of the Sport button that changes the engine mapping for more immediate power and the electronic suspension tighter handling. Rolling through secondary roads east of Portland, the Turbo Executive clung to the road like a train on the tracks. With the engine blipping up and down between shifts, I was ensconced in the back seat watching the trees fly by as my co-driver kept repeating how he could not believe a car weighing more than two tons could drive like a sportscar. Next up was the 2014 S (starting price $106,600) which comes in rear- and all-wheeldrive and also with the Executive longer wheelbase.

It is equipped with a new twin turbo 3.0-litre V6 with 420 hp and 384 lb/ft of torque. That’s the same amount of torque and only 20 hp less than the big 4.8-litre V8 in GTS which, I must confess, is still my overall favourite with its big bore high performance sound. But the S is a little lighter and better on fuel. And it has a noticeable finer balance compared to the GTS perhaps because there isn’t such a huge mass of engine up front affecting the pitch and yaw. This could also be due to the fact the one I drove was rear-wheeldrive instead of the heavier AWD. The Panamera S is the closest I came to feeling I was driving a 911 that happened to have four doors because the feedback through the steering wheel was so communicative. But what I was really there for was the Panamera S E-Hybrid, the first-in hybrid ever offered by Porsche starting at $113,300. It uses the same 3.0-litre V6 as the S but it is supercharged producing 333 hp and 325 lb/ft of torque mated to a 95 hp electric motor with 229 lb/ ft for a combined 411 hp and 435 lb/ft with a model specific eight-speed Tiptronic transmission with power to the rear wheels. Top speed is 270 km/h. Easy to charge at

JIM ROBINSON/CONTRIBUTOR

PORSCHE now offers nine versions of the Panamera (GTS shown) including Porsche’s first plug-in hybrid and an extending wheelbase model with limo-like back seat legroom. home, the saving is in its fuel consumption. It is still being calculated at this writing but a highway rating of 3.1L/100 km has been set in Europe. Driving the E-Hybrid is similar to all plug-in of my experience. The only way to tell the E-Hybrid from other Panameras is the lime green brake calipers. In all electric mode, the range is up to 36 km in real world driving conditions and you can travel in all-electric up to a speed of 135 km. On the right hand side of the centre console are two buttons, one for

E-Power (all electric) and E-Charge which is used to harvest power from the engine. The acceleration time from 100 km/h is 5.5 seconds thanks to the electric boost function that can also be activated by kick-down – such as in overtaking situations. The parallel full hybrid concept developed by Porsche also offers “coasting” at higher speeds, which refers to free coasting with the internal combustion engine shut off and energy recovery by generating electricity. The slower you go

in all-electric, the further you go and at an observed 50 mph I was able to cover close to 10 miles before it was time to click in the E-Charge button. For this I am pretty sure daily commutes here in Canada under 40 km are realistic using coasting and E-Charge. So with the money you save in fuel, you might want to look at the extensive list of options. From bigger wheels all the way up to a guy coming from the factory to hand pick colours and materials, the range is dizzying in price. On the Turbo Execu-

tive I drove, the U.S. list price of $161,100 topped out at $221,075 with more than $60,000 in options including $9,210 for the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes. Similarly, the Panamera S I drove had a U.S. price of $93,200 but was $128,945 with options. And of course that’s all before HST. But those with the funds to buy a Panamera care little about how much options cost. In Canada, I was told $20,000 on a 911 is the norm. The object is, with that kind of money,

You even made the dogs smile! One can only imagine that joyful reunion at Rainbow Bridge, upon Cassie’s passing a few months ago. In Chad’s own words, “Remember the Love with no Regrets”. Thank you Chad, we live in gratitude for the life we shared and treasured memories of glad times and sad times together. You are forever loved and forever missed.

Dad, Mom, Ryan, Christal, Liam, Granny… and so many others that loved you too.

Don’t abandon your interest in gardening just yet N FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett Just take a walk in your own garden at this time of year and also take a drive around town to observe other gardens. The plant material is looking stellar right now. All summer long we battle the never ending heat that takes its toll

Pr i N at ces o $ s G 32 ta ST 9 r , N ,9 tin o 00 g PT T

ow is a most beautiful time of year in the Okanagan, but don’t throw in the trowel just yet. Quite often we forget about gardening in October and turn our attention to other activities. Here in the Okanagan, however, winter doesn’t come as early as it does in other parts of the country. So we often waste valuable and pleasurable time that could be spent in the garden on preparing for and simply waiting and pining for the winter activities to begin.

Hi

Elk Road

Two Eagles Golf Course

Co

ing enthusiasts including Eva Antonijevic realized at a winter get together that there was just as much gardening beauty to see and enjoy in the fall as there is in the spring and early summer. This may be the start of something special. The turnout was great and the plants and flowers were spectacular. ••• I want to give you the heads up on the spectacular lineup of speakers the Central Okanagan Heritage Society has lined up for the fall.

For five consecutive Tuesday nights beginning Oct. 22, there will be very informative talks given by experts in the field of heritage buildings and events. These sessions will be held in the Reid Hall at the Benvoulin Heritage Park in Kelowna, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. A suggested donation of $5 will be gratefully accepted at the door which helps pay the expenses and contributes to the work done by the COHS. There is limited seating so get there on time. The speaker lined up for Oct. 22 really caught my eye, as the folks at Benjamen Moore Paints will expose the fact that there indeed was colour in all those black and white photos we are so used to

seeing from the past and these were often quite different than our modern colours; the adage “old is new” will be up front and centre. Here is the line-up in brief you can get the details on line at okheritagesociety.com: Tuesday, Oct. 22, Colour Matters (Benjamin Moore & COHS) Tuesday, Oct. 29, Kakonsedai: A Century of Community (Lake Country Museum) Tuesday, Nov. 5, Heritage Exposed—the cosmetic look and skeleton of a building Tuesday, Nov.12, My journey to Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in 1953 (Carl Zanon) Tuesday, Nov. 19, Benvoulin Church—a building that reflects its community (COHS).

Did you know: 1. When looking for an interest rate, mortgage brokers can acquire a rate hold for up to 120 days. This gives a buyer time to search for a property that meets their needs. 2. Mortgage brokers will only do one credit check when processing an application. They can deal with several financial institutions in searching out the best mortgage rates and terms without requiring a re-do credit check each time, which otherwise would negatively affect a client’s credit score. 3. There are different types of mortgage lenders that mortgage brokers deal with, not just the major banks in Canada but also mortgage only financial services firms. There are also lenders that deal with applicants with damaged credit or who have difficulty proving income. Those interest rates will be higher than from conventional lenders but can help an individual re-establish their credit which allow them to refinance with one of the conventional lenders in the future. 4. You can purchase a home with as little as five per cent down. 5. That down payment can be gifted from immediate family members. 6. Co-signers/guarantors/co-borrowers are allowed to help qualify for the mortgage. 7. Debts can be refinanced into one mortgage, up to 80 per cent of the value of your home. 8. Mortgage brokers can also do credit lines up to 65 per cent of the value of your home. 9. Mortgage brokers’ working hours are very flexible, making their services readily available. 10. A mortgage broker only deals with your mortgage and isn’t trying to sell any other services as part of the deal. 11. Second and third mortgages are available through a mortgage broker. 12. Mortgage brokers in Kelowna can finance properties in other provinces. Hopefully, these points offer some insight into the benefits for those who are looking at purchasing, refinancing or just looking for a credit line for future investments or purchases.

showcase ▼ HOME RENOVATION

Huge project pushes limits of creativity Blurring from A16 tearing out a wall that had a fireplace in it and replacing it with floor-toceiling windows overlooking the swimming pool, and enlarging the one interior wall of the family room while converting it to natural stone. Travertine marble tiles from Peru were placed on the floor of the lanai, the family room and the kitchen. “When you open up the glass doors, it makes it look like it’s all one space,” Pamela Jones said. Adding to the impression is the crucial fact that the tracks for the retractable glass doors are in the ceiling, not the floor. Which only helped make the whole job an engineering feat. Project manager Greg Rupp said it would be something for him to brag about—if only he could explain it to anybody. The whole massive roof leading from the family room through the

lanai is engineered, he said; the headers that normally are above openings to outside doors are all hidden within the roof, “so that right below the ceiling you’re seeing outside.” Skylights in the ceiling required beams rather than rafters, also enclosed within the roof. Then there are the steel I-beams required to hold up each glass panel making up the retractable walls: Each panel is 10 feet high, four feet wide and 400 pounds. Putting the tracks for them in the ceiling required absolute rigidity. The company that makes the glass panels is in Pennsylvania, so Rupp and his crew had to communicate long-distance to arrange all the details, becoming good acquaintances in the process. In addition, in the kitchen, the glass walls have to turn a corner so that when they are open and stacked up they don’t obstruct the view.

Rupp ended up placing the tracks in a box shape in the ceiling to accomplish the turning of the corner; Bill Jones still has to stop and figure out how exactly to follow the tracks when he’s opening the doors, maneuvering them as if he were working a puzzle. “Everything was very, very tricky,” Pamela Jones said of the project. The concept work took a year; the construction took nine months, during which a temporary wall had to be built to hold up the second floor of the house and seal the house from the elements. The neighbourhood had to live with the project, too—on the day that the wooden beams arrived on semis, Star Lumber figured out the only way to get them to the house was to move each of them sideways down the street on a forklift, Rupp said. “They fit between all the trees and shrubs and things.” The neighbours sat

outside and watched the spectacle for hours. Joe Gross did the landscaping and found that shipments of plant material for the yard didn’t always mesh with the construction schedule, forcing some plants to be hilled in the front yard until they could be planted. Pamela Jones is an interior designer and Bill Jones’ business is insurance. So it was kind of a surprise that the two of them designed the new addition to their house together—he did the architecture, and she did the interiors, meticulously choosing the furnishings, custom-designing a rug and a new front door, spending months, for example, hunting down someone who could translate a long, narrow vertical box into a firepit with exacting specifications. “Everything we did was like that,” Pamela Jones said. “It was a huge project. It was something else.”

Lower inventory and higher real estate sales

THE HOME of Bill and Pamela Jones underwent a renovation recently that created a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors.

▼ HOUSE RENOVATION

Blurring the line between inside and outside Annie Calovich CONTRIBUTOR

The clouds were gathering on the late-summer morning, and raindrops started to patter around Bill and Pamela Jones’ house in their neighbourhood. The front yard of their house in Wichita, Kan., already stood out from its neighbours, lushly landscaped with sleek fountains and evergreens. But it’s not until you walk into the house that it lifts up to a whole new level. Bill Jones started to reveal the surprise in the vaulted family room by pulling back retractable glass walls that separate the family room from a large living and dining room that the Joneses refer to as the lanai. With the flip of a switch, wall-spanning shades rose on three sides of the lanai, allowing the leafy backyard, koi pond and swimming pool to rush into the

space, uniting much of the whole first floor of the house with the outdoors. A light rain started to fall, but the Joneses were cozy and dry, breathing in the outdoor air, feeling the breeze, grinning at the beauty of being able to live as few do in the non-tropical plains of Kansas. “This room is actually outside,” Pamela Jones said of the lanai, though it does share the same roof as the rest of the house. The lanai contains a built-in grill, a long dining room table, a firepit and seating areas—all done in outdoor fabrics and materials, though you can’t tell it. A European heat-pump system provides heating and cooling to help make the outdoor area comfortable. “We wanted to bring the outside in and the inside out so when you open it, the outside comes in, and when you close it…it’s all interior,” Pamela Jones said.

When the shades in the lanai are down, “you can’t see through. It’s very private in here.” And 95 per cent of the outdoor air and light is blocked from coming through the screens. “We want to use this as much as we can, because it’s so enjoyable and fun,” Pamela Jones said of the lanai. Most people in Wichita can’t roll back the car sunroof or open the windows in the house all that much of the year because of the extremes in weather, but the Joneses think their lanai is weatherized enough to stretch the limits and be used most of the year with the screens up. Even as it rained, light moisture was visible on the floor only about a foot into the lanai. The elaborate remodelling of the back of the Joneses’ house started, as these things do, with one innocent discovery. “We had seen the movable glass walls when we were in Flor-

ida, and we decided we wanted to have them,” Pamela Jones said. So one thing leads to another. “Then whenever I was outside I would get bitten up horribly all the time. So my husband said we have to put up some screens that are movable so we can shut it down. “We had a porch but we wanted it larger, and then we wanted it to have big openings, and then we wanted it to open and close, and so that turned into the lanai.” They decided to remove the back of the first floor of the house, adding the glass walls to the kitchen and the family room where solid walls used to be, and allowing access from both rooms to the lanai. That led to remodeling both the rooms as well, especially the family room. The Joneses ended up vaulting the family room’s ceiling, See Blurring A15

t’s been out with the old and in with the low inventory as again last month statistics released from the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate board reflected higher sales and below average inventory coming onto the market. For September, there were 187 single family homes sold in the Central Okanagan—that number is up 116 from this time last year, a whopping 61.21 per cent. Condominiums faced REAL ESTATE a similar situation with the RUNDOWN number of sales bumping up 15 per cent from last year, rising from 60 in 2012 to 69 . Townhomes sales leaped forward as well Ceinwen with an climb Morgan of 71.88astonishing per cent, September 2012 there were 32 sales, while last month’s stats reflected 55 sales. Overall sales across the board in the Central Okanagan were up by almost 50 per cent. New residential listings for the month of September were down 9.73 per cent, from 329 in 2012 to 297. Condominiums listings mirrored the residential sales as well with a similar decline of 11.27 per cent from 142 to 126. Overall, the listing inventory is down a substantial 12.68 per cent in the Central Okanagan. The average residential home or condominium is selling for around the same sale price as it was last year fluctuating roughly one per cent in price. But while there are hopes of the real estate market finally coming to a plateau in 2014 and offering stability in the future, there are still lingering concerns with the increase in sales coupled with the low interest rates that might cause another shift in our economy coast to coast. Mr. Dauphin, the mayor of the Montreal borough of Lachine, stated: “Housing costs and, as the Bank of Canada notes, household debt, are undermining Canadians personal financial security, while putting our national economy at risk.” He also noted that the mortgage debt held by Canadians now stands at $1.1 trillion. There have been several different predictions over the years in real estate, but when it comes down to it there is no real method to the madness and no one has crystal ball. The basic tried and true method of real estate is buy low, sell high and location, location. Ceinwen Morgan works in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
