Gospel Mission shares feast for Thanksgiving

Wade Paterson

STAFF REPORTER

Squinting his eyes in the sunshine, while standing on Leon Avenue’s sidewalk yesterday, Colin Farr said he is thankful for Kelowna’s weather and Kelowna’s Gospel Mission. Farr was one of about 700 individuals who ate Thanksgiving dinner at the Gospel Mission between noon and 5 p.m. He said Monday’s meal was important “not only for the homeless, but for the whole community.” “This brings people together,” said Farr. Gospel Mission executive director Randy Benson said Monday’s feast consisted of 54 turkeys, 18 hams, 500 pounds of potatoes, a couple hundred litres of gravy, as well as dressing, vegetables and dessert. “We do three banquets a year: Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter,” said Benson. “Thanksgiving is generally our largest one, when the most people come out.” According to Benson, preparation for this year’s Thanksgiving dinner began four weeks in advance.

I THINK ONE OF THE FACTORS IS THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN TOWN, EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE HOUSED, PROBABLY DON’T HAVE THE MEANS TO PREPARE A THANKSGIVING DINNER. Randy Benson, Gospel Mission

Benson said a typical supper meal served in the summer or fall will feed 150 to 200 people; however, Thanksgiving brings out a lot more members of the community. “I think one of the factors is that a lot of people in town, even though they’re housed, probably don’t have the means to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner. “We’ll get a lot of people who are living on pretty modest incomes, who can come down and enjoy a full meal that they normally wouldn’t. “That’s really our purpose, to meet the needs of the people, no matter what

served the meals and helped clean-up. The dining hall was also set up with larger tables to create a family atmosphere. “People are really appreciative…I think it’s a

great opportunity we have to serve the community this way.” Farr, who was born and raised in Kelowna, said the Gospel Mission has assisted him, on and off, for the last 30 years.

Union and management at B.C. Tree Fruits Cooperative have announced that negotiations for a new contract have resulted in a framework agreement for a seven-year term. Marketing manager Chris Pollock said management and union leaders are just putting the details on paper, so specifics of the agreement won’t be released yet, but there has been a contract framework agreement reached with local 247 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. Workers voted on the framework agreement at meetings held throughout the valley between Sept. 30 and Oct. 2. The agreement was reached Oct. 3 and affects more than 400 hourly employees around the Okanagan Valley, as well as increased flexibility and productivity for management, said BCTF chief executive officer Alan Tyabji. “We are extremely pleased with the terms of the agreement which support the future growth and long-term goals of B.C. Tree Fruits Cooperative,” Tyabji said. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Guilty plea on lesser charge

▼ WEST KELOWNA

Cell service tower divisive issue for residents Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Preceded by a little row of bubbles, two turtles swam to the surface of Art Pond, off Westlake Road in West Kelowna, right on cue as neighbour Wade Neukomm was showing his four-year-old the wonders of nature. Ringed by bulrushes and swamp grasses, the pond is a haven for ducks and geese, turtles and other aquatic creatures, despite the fact that it is almost completely surrounded by industrial activity. A number of neighbours are concerned about a proposal by Telus to construct a 65-metrehigh self-supported telecommunications tower structure at 2378 Westlake Rd., in the southeast corner of the Barski Industries property, between Art Pond and an unnamed pond. And Neukomm, who grew up in the neighbourhood around the two ponds along Westlake Road, is concerned about “the impact more development will have in this little ecosystem. “It’s just not appropriate,” he feels. He and his wife moved back to the neighbourhood to raise their family because they felt it was such a terrific place to grow up, and they wanted their children to be able to enjoy natural areas such as these ponds and Rose Valley Pond while they grow up. “It’s just another dollop of industrial encroachment on them instead of alleviating the pressure on these ponds,” he commented. He questions why this location was chosen, and notes that, although it is at the entrance of a

large residential area, few people actually live within the distance required by Industry Canada for notification to be sent out of such projects, so few people realize it’s been proposed. “We are all stewards of the remaining natural spaces in our community, spaces which have supported an abundant diversity of wildlife despite expanding development and increased recreational pressure,” he wrote in his letter objecting to the proposed structure. He noted that migratory birds nest around the ponds, and both are inhabited by a population of native painted turtles, which are listed as endangered. Newkomm is also annoyed by the short time frame between a little-publicized public meeting regarding the proposal Sept. 24 and the Oct. 5 deadline for submissions from the public. Nicole Waidman and some of her neighbours are also concerned about the proposal so they went door-to-door to let people know about it the day before that deadline, armed with copies of the comment sheet provided by Telus for people to fill out and submit. It asked if residents are happy with the quality of their wireless service; if they’d like to see an improvement; and if they feel this is an appropriate location for a tower. Waidman said she feels such a tall industrial tower at the entrance to the residential areas of Rose Valley and West Kelowna Estates is inappropriate. She is also concerned about RF radio waves from the tower so close to elementary schools, daycares and other commun-

WADE Neukomm and his four-year-old son Logan learn about the wild world by watching nature in local natural areas such as Art Pond in West Kelowna. ity facilities. “When we moved here from Vancouver we decided against buying in certain areas because of such high energy towers,” she said, finding it frustrating now to see one being proposed in her new chosen neighbourhood. Telus spokesman Shawn Hall says they are confident the tower can be installed at the site with no environment impact, while providing improved cellular services that are being demanded by West Kelowna customers. “The demands for wireless services are continuing to explode, and the only way to meet those demands is by expanding our area of coverage with antenna support structures like the tower being proposed,” Hall said. He said Telus carried out an extensive

search for a tower site, a $500,000 investment, and found the Westlake Road location the most suitable. He said it requires no additional service roadway, is located next to an industrial site and the landlord is willing to lease them the land required. “We are aware of the pond issue but we don’t feel this tower is going to have an impact,” Hall said. “We do our best to make these structures fit in aesthetically, and in this case because of available access,we don’t have to disturb the ground beyond the space for the tower… it’s going to have a small footprint on the property. ” Hall said Telus has received about 100 responses to the proposal, with the breakdown being about a 50/50 split of being for and against the

project. “That’s more I think than we might typically get for this kind of application,” Hall said. “Some people have registered concerns and others have simply told us to get on with it. We want to be good neighbours and we will respond to every response that we have received as our part of participating in this process. ” Beyond improving cellular service in current wireless service “dark areas” of the Westside, Hall said there is also a safety factor to consider, as about 60 per cent of 911 calls today come from cell phones, which he says becomes an issue for those living in areas without wireless service. “The only way we are going to meet that demand of improving wireless services is with addi-

tional service towers like we are proposing,” Hall said. The proposal will go to West Kelowna council for its comments, along with submissions from the public consultation. Council’s comments are to be forwarded to Industry Canada, which has final approval over placement of new wireless radio-communications facilities. The expectation is that decision will be made sometime within the next year. Waidman said she intends to let council know she hopes it will not give its approval. She has also contacted her MP Dan Albas with her concerns about the process and the proposal. —with files from Barry Gerding.

A Lake Country man accused of attempted murder in connection with a 2011 shooting has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge. Kenneth Brian Ralston, who is in his early 60s, pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon to aggravated assault and using a firearm in the commission of an offence. He was arrested on March 3, 2011, after police say they found a person bleeding from an apparent gunshot wound to his right leg at a home in the 10,000-block of Highway 97. The victim, 44, was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. Police say they were alerted to the incident after receiving a call from another home in the area. At the time of the shooting, police say the victim and Ralston lived together in the same house, but did not disclose a motive for the incident. A pre-sentence report was ordered following Ralston’s guilty plea. A sentencing date is expected to be set in December.

GROSSMITH HEARING

A preliminary hearing is scheduled to get underway today (Tuesday) for a young man accused of using a hammer to kill his mother last year. Conor Frederick Grossmith is accused of attacking his mother, 57-year-old Kate Gilchrist, in her home on Sept. 13, 2012. She died nine days later, leading to Grossmith, now 25, being charged with murder. His mental state at the time she was attacked is an issue in the case.

The Kelowna-based couple was married for more than 60 years before the death of Alex in 2001 and Rae earlier this year. The Hansons left the bulk of their estate to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Southern Interior Rotary Lodge and a new garden sculpture on the grounds of the lodge will commemorate the couple and their generosity. “When someone is faced with a cancer diagnosis, the last thing they want to worry about is where to stay during their treatment,” said Barbara Kaminsky, regional CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society.

Layers of traditional comfort food flavours, from cheesey squash risotto through gently-braised oxtails in a rich Merlot sauce were topped off by a crisp bite of earthy wild mushroom cracker and a broiled bite of Sauvagine cheese. And that was just one of the 10 or so dishes prepared for an enthusiastic audience at the Alexis de Portneuf Young Chefs’ competition at Okanagan College during the Fall Okanagan Wine Festival. Sponsored by a championship Quebec-based cheese maker, the apprentices and young chefs were challenged to create new dishes, appetizer, main or dessert, using the company’s cheeses. They then offered their creations for tasting by the public, who accompanied the dishes with fine wines provided by local wineries. The new chefs also prepared dishes for a pair of judges, who were charged with selecting a winner among the young chefs, and between the

He began with Okanagan boar bacon, which he had smoked himself, then incorporated into both mixed greens with a cheesy dressing, and a tiny stuffed local pepper. It was accompanied by a crisp cheesy cracker. Executive chef Roger Planiden and Capital News food writer Judie Steeves, author of Jude’s Kitchen, served as official judges for the event, and both admitted it was a difficult task to choose amongst the many excellent creations. They judged the above-described dish of young chef Zachary Drake of the Hotel Eldorado, to be tops among the group of seven young chefs and he was presented with both a trophy and money prize from the cheese company. The creations of the apprentice team of four students of Chef Perry Bentley of the Okanagan

College Culinary Arts Program were selected as tops among three apprentice chef teams and also received a trophy and prize money. They prepared a bite of chocolate cheesecake with a smoked Caciocavallo cheese and a hint of chili;   a double chocolate quinoa cake with a Capriny goat cheese; and a coffee-flavoured macaron with a Caronzola ganache and brush of black currant. The event capped two weeks of activities as part of the 33rd annual fall festival. Blair Baldwin, general manager of the Okanagan Wine Festival Society said it was an extremely busy couple of weeks that featured great weather and record attendance at a number of the larger events. Each night, it seemed there were larger numbers than ever before at signature events such as the Young Chefs’ competition, he commented. “We’re very pleased and we’re now planning for the festivals in 2014,” he added. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Stu McQueen, a West Kelowna resident and YMCA operations manager for Silver Lake Camp, will be featured on the TV show Undercover Boss Canada, one of the W Network’s top rated series. The episode featuring McQueen and the Okanagan YMCA will air Thursday, Oct. 17, 9 p.m. on the W Network. The Okanagan YMCA is one of four locations in Canada that made the final episode, along with YMCA of Greater Vancouver (two centres) and YMCA of Calgary. The Undercover Boss Canada show’s premise is to follow an executive as they leave the comfort of their offices to become transformed into a frontline worker with a covert disguise and a convincing back story. Working alongside the employees, each “undercover boss” takes an often emotional journey, discovering the effects their decisions have on others, the perception of the company, and who the unsung heroes of their workforce are. As registered charities themselves, each YMCA Member Association has a chief executive officer but they are known well and readily recognized within their own associations. An opportunity was created to have Scott Haldane, president and CEO of YMCA Canada, go undercover and learn on the front line on behalf of local member association CEOs and the broader Canadian YMCA Federation. For those who may miss the live broadcast, the Kelowna Family YMCA will be airing the episode at the Y facility in Rutland, 375 Hartman Rd, on Friday, Oct. 18, 9 a.m.

Hamilton to lead OC for another 4 years One of Okanagan College’s longest-serving employees—president Jim Hamilton—will continue to lead the institution for a while longer. The college Board of Governors recently extended Hamilton’s existing contract by an additional two years, until Oct. 31, 2017. He has served in the position since late 2004. “Jim has provided tremendous leadership for the college through dramatic changes and rapid development,” explained board chair Tom Styffe. “We asked Jim if he would be interested in

having his current contract extended and he agreed. We couldn’t be more pleased.” Hamilton is already the longest-serving president in the B.C. College system. His association with the institution dates to 1980, when he began work as an English instructor at the Vernon campus, which was housed in the army barracks. Hamilton’s accomplishments in his nine years as president are many, says Styffe. They include seeing more than $100 million of new construction and expansion

completed throughout the valley, more than 40 per cent enrolment growth and a rapid expansion in the array of programs offered. “One of the college’s greatest accomplishments is the dramatic growth in the number of aboriginal students who are registered at Okanagan College, and the strides we have made to understand, respect and learn from their culture,” said Hamilton. In 2005, Okanagan College had about 400 aboriginal students registered. In 2012-13, more than 1,500 were taking

courses and programs at the college. “There are probably about 1,100 reasons— namely, my colleagues — that I agreed to extend my tenure at the college,” said Hamilton. “I feel Okanagan College is at a critical juncture where we can take advantage of the momentum that has been developed and we can continue to build on our reputation for quality. “The skills shortage facing this province and country provides both a duty and an opportunity for the college. I want to be part of rising to that challenge.”

Brain research funding in US shows shift

E

ncouraging news came out of the U.S. last week with an announcement from the National Institutes of Health about brain research funding for the 2014 fiscal year. U.S. President Barack Obama announced a BRAIN initiative in April calling for $110 million to fund research into neuro-technologies to advance our understanding of the brain and how it works. Forty million dollars will come from NIH and the announcement set out areas of high priority to receive this funding. Nine key areas were identified to receive priority funding and the goal is to use these research areas to create a more com-

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer plete picture of how the cells and circuits within the brain work to affect human behaviour as well as how they go wrong in disease. The nine areas of focus are: generating a census of brain cell types; creating structural maps of the brain; developing new, largescale neural network recording capabilities; developing tools for neural circuit manipulation; linking neuronal activ-

ity to behaviour; integrating theory, modeling, statistics and computation with neuroscience experiments; delineating mechanisms underlying brain imaging technologies; creating mechanisms to enable collection of human data for research; and, disseminating knowledge and training. The BRAIN Working Group will continue creating a longer-term scientific plan they expect to present to NIH sometime next year. In the meantime, researchers will be able to use this new funding to continue existing work in these areas and launch new programs in order to achieve these goals. It is exciting to see a priority being placed on

this kind of scientific research. In fact, it is part of what some are likening to an international neuroscience arms race. Not only has the US pledged several billion dollars into neuroscience research in the coming years, but Europe has also been putting forward large amounts of research money for brain mapping and Canada has also ponied up some cash both federally and provincially. In 2011-2012, the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) spent more than 10 percent of its $1 billion budget on neuroscience. It seems there is a shift occurring around the world as everyone wants to work toward truly ad-

School at 3675 Casorso Road in Kelowna. “Many people may not realize that just a small amount of water inside any old tires sitting around their property can create the perfect breeding ground for mosquito larvae,” CORD communications officer Bruce Smith said. “By safely recycling these unwanted tires at any of these four free, drop-off locations you’ll remove opportunities for mosquitoes to reproduce

around your home. That helps protect you, your family and neighbours from the nuisance insects and reduces the potential risk of spreading West Nile Virus.” He added there are excellent resources available to help you and your family during the mosquito season.

tives, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, etc. Organic arsenic can be found in poultry and some shellfish such as shrimp and crab. Arsenic is an approved feed supplement that farmers use to control intestinal parasites in poultry and up to 65 per cent of arsenic in poultry is inorganic. Arsenic is also used to “disinfect” chickens as they go through the mill to kill any bacteria prior to packaging. As such, I support local poultry farmers, and choose organic meats over large commercial producers. Drinking water can also be a large source of inorganic arsenic. Numerous studies support the deleterious health effects linking it to an increased risk of cancer, and non-cancerous skin lesions. Since the Okanagan is home to golf courses, orchards, wineries, and other farming, testing your unfiltered drinking water at home would be beneficial. Arsenic is also used to preserve wood, in the form of copper-chromated arsenic (CCA), specifically in pressure treated lumber. Backyard decks and wooden playgrounds are a common source. Although the U.S. EPA required CCA-wood be withdrawn from the residential marketplace in 2003, many of these structures still remain a large source of expos-

ure. Additionally, specific arsenic-containing pesticides are commonly sprayed on residential and park lawns, and golf course greens. The EPA is slowly phasing out arsenic-containing pesticides. Low dose daily exposure can cause subtle health changes. Tissues most affected include the skin, nasal passages, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and liver. Chronic low-dose arsenic exposure can increase risk for epithelial cancers such as Bowen’s disease, squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma. Early signs of arsenic exposure affecting the skin include keratosis, thickening and scaling of the skin and hyperpigmentation. Chronic symptoms may take 2-8 weeks to appear after original exposure. Hyperpigmentation can be small, discoloured spots, diffuse, dark brown spots, or darkening of the skin on the limbs or trunk – all known as melanosis. Arsenic-induced skin lesions are often an afterthought. If you have had unexplained skin lesions for some time, have been examined by your family doctor and/or dermatologist but symptoms persist, consider having a heavy metal urine test through a naturopathic doctor. Dr. Emina Jasarevic is a naturopath with The Core Centre of Health in Kelowna.

Charlie Hodge manager Curtis Tulman. Curtis should know. He is a former original Cruzeros and played with Mathers for more than 25 years. Tulman was named the CCMA’s Special Instrumentalist three times for his outstanding harmonica and saxophone work with the band. Ironically, Tulman will also be performing at the Night of the Arts with his own band, Cowboy Bob, which headlined last year’s sold out concert and wowed the audience. Music fans are also in for another musical treat via the wonderful songs and music of Keith “Papa” Thom. Thom is well-known across Canada for his folk

style song writing and rich vocals. His appearance at this year’s fundraiser marks his first time at the event. But he is no stranger to Okanagan Valley music fans. Last year he opened a concert in Winfield for Canadian music legend Valdy, which I was honoured enough to MC. In addition he plays a variety of venues in the Valley. Thom is quite simply another amazing singersongwriter along the folk genre and a marvellous and kind community minded man. Audiences will be spellbound by his tunes. The brilliant guitar work of Jimmy LeGuilloux and the superb rock tunes by the Jimmy LeGuilloux Band will be rocking the Community Theatre also that evening. A valley rock icon Jim’s sets are always an excellent and entertaining blend of originals and classic rock covers. Few, if any, rock musi-

cians are better known or loved than LeGuilloux. In addition to his vocal and musical skills, he has also donated his stage management skills to the evening along with Tulman and sound engineer extrodinaire John Adams. It keeps getting better. Joining Thom, Dirt Road Opera, Cowboy Bob and the Jimmy LeGuilloux Band will be the talented bluegrass band The Trips, led by the gifted Graham Ord. Popular vocal diva Deb Stone will also be making a guest appearancewith another to be confirmed next week. . As with the past two years, all proceeds from the show will go to Metro Central, an excellent facility downtown, run by the faith-based Metro Communities. Metro is a terrific organization that assists those at riskhere. They provide a safe and inviting place for those in need to receive counselling, and a cup of coffee.

Headlining this year’s concert will be the highly entertaining roots-country band Dirt Road Opera, featuring the amazing vocals of Barry Mathers and Rachel Matkin. As one might anticipate, the five-piece band boasts jaw-dropping four-part harmonies by Mathers, Matkin, lead guitarist Gary Smyth, and smoking drummer Jay Swetlishoff . Together less than three months, Dirt Road Opera already have music fans around the Okanagan raving about their talents and it’s no surprise, the band is comprised of three members of the former highly acclaimed country-roots band The Cruzeros. Mathers, Smythe and Swetlishoff were part of The Cruzeros when the band garnered multiple Juno nominations and hauled in plenty of music awards from both the Canadian Country Music Association and the B.C.

entral Okanagan school trustees are likely upset to be faced with cutting the budget a further $1.2 million, but they are not likely to get any sympathy from Victoria. That’s because the provincial ministry of education has been doing this for years, as have other government ministries at both the federal and provincial levels. It’s a process of weaselling out of tough decisions by what is referred to as downloading service costs to the municipal

level of government, social service program agencies, volunteer-fueled non-profit agencies and, in this case, school districts. It started during the Chretien/ Martin Liberal years in Ottawa and has carried on ever since. This latest round of budget cuts downloaded on the Central Okanagan Board of Education is the result of a contract settlement negotiated by the provincial government with CUPE school supporter workers that provides an overall 3.5 per cent wage increase.

After reaching that deal, the government then turned around and said school districts will have to find the money to pay for something school boards didn’t negotiate. A few weeks ago, Education Minister Peter Fassbender was asked by a Capital News reporter what fiscal pressure a pending deal with CUPE would place on school boards. Fassbender evaded the question, other than to say “we are all in this together.” Not really. When the CUPE

deal was signed off on, the province just passed the buck off to the cash-strapped and budget control-eroded school boards to make up the difference. So cuts will be made since school boards can’t run a deficit, or else they get replaced. Some students and parents may or may not notice any change, as school district administration officials start moving numbers around again to equal the $1.2-million budget hit. And the downloading game just keeps carrying on.

Following the rulstarted her fight to make medicaling, she took her own ly assisted suicide legal life with the help of in Canada in 2011, she an anonymous physsaid she was proud ician, who, to this day to be following in the Alistair has never been idenfootsteps of another Waters tified. No one was Canadian right-to-die ever charged in Rodcrusader, Victoria’s Sue riguez’s death. Rodriguez. Taylor, who lived in West KelowRodriguez, who also suffered na, died from complications associfrom ALS, better known as Lou ated with ALS in October, 2012. But Gehrig’s disease, took her battle all she said she considered Rodriguez a the way to the Supreme Court of Can- hero for the effort she made to give ada in 1993. She wanted the right terminally ill Canadians the right to to choose a medically assisted suidie with dignity. Taylor deserves the

same accolade. But the two women had more than ALS in common. They both lost their bids to change Canadian law. But in Taylor’s case that may not be all she wrote. While Taylor was given the personal right to a medically-assisted suicide—the only person in Canada ever afforded that right—on appeal, the B.C. Supreme Court overturned the broader decision to overturn Canada’s ban on medically assisted suicide last week. The issue is now headed back to the Supreme Court of Canada for a final decision. Taylor will not be there to participate in that fight but I’m sure her spirit will be present.

She was right, the terminally ill in this country deserve a choice in how to end their lives. And, as she was keen to point out two years ago, stringent safeguards need to be in place. But to force terminally ill people to suffer in pain in their last days, knowing the end is coming but not certain when, is a cruelty we, as a civilized society, do not inflict on our pets. So why do it to human beings? Recent public opinion polls have shown a majority of Canadians favour some form of medically assisted suicide in this country. It’s time act on that. When the B.C. Court of Appeal’s decision to uphold the federal ban

on assisted suicide was released last week, it was not unanimous. When the two judges who upheld the ban called the societal consequences of permitting physician-assisted suicide “a matter of serious concern to many Canadians,” they were right. But so too was the lone judge who dissented. He said the case raised issues about the right to life, liberty and security of the person, something enshrined in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The terminally ill deserve  better than what we are offering them now. Let’s hope the Supreme Court of Canada sees it that way. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor.

LETTERS ▼ FOSTER PARENTS ASSOC.

Appreciate a foster family this month To the editor: It is Foster Family Month in British Columbia. Foster homes are a vital part of our community. Foster Families are very special people who provide temporary care for children, in a warm, loving, family environment, for a limited amount of time, until the children can return home. Foster families open their homes and their hearts to children of all ages.

Children come into their homes needing a safe place, to be cared for and accepted for who they are. Some children stay a few days, while others may stay longer. Some children are even adopted by their foster family and others remain in close contact even after they return home. Foster parents are special people. They care for children with a wide array of behaviours and challenges. They work as

part of a team with a large number of professionals, counsellors and social workers. Everyone watches how they care for the children, and sometimes, without understanding the circumstances, make judgments. Foster parents can’t tell you anything about the child, his background or why he behaves that way. Confidentiality is taken very seriously! Many of the children have special needs:

some you can see, some you can’t. Foster parents take a large number of courses and workshops to enhance their skills and knowledge. They respect a child’s cultural heritage and encourage the children to maintain ties with their culture and their extended family. To be a foster parent, you must have a great deal of patience and a good sense of humour. You’ll need both! It is often a challenging

job, but very rewarding. If you know someone who is a foster parent, let them know how special they are. I have been privileged to work with foster parents for many years and I think every one of them is terrific! Joan Kirkbride, Okanagan Foster Parents Association, Kelowna

FortisBC ‘committed to resolving’ labour dispute engaged in mediation with the union and the assistance of Vince Ready, who the union recommended as a mediator. At the completion of mediation, Mr. Ready presented a set of recommendations which both the company and the union accepted in principle prior to ratification. This included an 11 per cent increase in wages over five years, plus a signing bonus and additional premiums. It is an agreement that includes no concessions to benefits. There were also

a number of items filed by FortisBC and the union that would allow productivity enhancements by focusing on improved work practices without any salary or benefit reductions to employees. FortisBC ratified the recommendations, while the membership of the IBEW 213 did not. Also there are no concessions regarding time off. These employees currently enjoy three to seven weeks of annual vacation; 15 days off special vacation every five

years; in addition to 14 days off each year, to observe statutory holidays and other days. FortisBC is closed for business on Family Day, with the exception of on-call personnel in management and our bargaining units for emergency response. We would like to see our employees return to work but as we are operating under an Essential Services Order (ESO), this will not be possible until a new collective agreement is reached. We activated the ESO

on June 26 following the union indicating that employees in the system control centre for our electrical operations would walk off the job. Unfortunately, the only way the company could activate the ESO is by serving lock out notice to the union. We remain committed to resolving this for our employees and customers by negotiating a new collective agreement. Joyce Wagenaar, director, FortisBC communications

Homeless face classic segregation discrimination To the editor: Re: Homeless Deserve Respect Same As All Of Us, in the Oct. 10 Capital News. Bravo! I recently went to a popular coffee shop in the city of Kelowna and witnessed an incident of disrespect towards a homeless man. Upon entering the coffee shop there was an older man ordering a drink and sandwiches at the counter. He paid fully for them, and the cashier gave him his change,

sandwiches and a drink. She then told him to go and sit outside. He was not permitted to sit inside with the other patrons. Have we not moved forward as a society? How is it that some of us think it is OK to shame and segregate our homeless population? The homeless deserve our compassion, our mercy and to be treated in a humane way. I would venture to say, they are not on our streets because they all want to be there

but rather they have experienced some tough circumstances and had little options to change them. Some may have drug/alcohol addiction, others runaway out of an abusive home, others have mental challenges, the list goes on —life can be very difficult for these people. In writing this letter I hope to accomplish the following: 1. Ask businesses to change their practices. Be compassionate to the homeless among us.

▼ HUMAN CONDITION

Respect for the homeless To the editor: Re: The letter headlined Homeless Deserve Respect Same As All Of Us, by Dhirgham Murran, in the Oct. 10 Capital News.  I wish that there were more people who would act like this, doing away with discrimination in our society. Kudos to your daughter in standing up to the gas station’s disrespectful staff, may God bless you and your family always.

Discrimination of any sort is very dehumanizing, and we must not condone such bad behaviour as we are all humans and we need each other to survive in this world. In bad times, there would be people who inadvertently become homeless. Spare some thoughts to these people and help them whenever you can afford to. Paul Yuen, Kelowna

There is no need for segregation—it is high time we moved ahead and recognized peoples’ right to be treated equal, regardless of their financial status. They are people, it is OK if they use your toilets and sit in your coffee shops. If your other patrons are uncomfortable, that is their own issue. 2. Encourage people to have a spirit of generosity and treat the homeless people among us with

the respect and the dignity they deserve. 3. Let me venture to prompt people into thinking: How can I touch this persons life? If each of us bought a sandwich, a cup of coffee or gave a blanket to someone in need our homeless people would have more warmth, shelter and kindness vs. isolation, shame and disrespect. B.

A breakfast just too hard to resist The community turned out in large numbers once again to support the annual Maxine DeHart/Ramada United Way Drive-Thru Breakfast. Some 1,500 breakfast bags were handed out between 6 and 9 a.m. last Thursday morning, with people still lining up after 9 a.m. hoping to get one. The annual United Way fundraiser raised close to $41,000. “The people of Kelowna really came through for us and the United Way again this year,” said DeHart. “I was overwhelmed by the response… we started at 5:30 (Thursday) morning and the traffic never stopped.”

Get serious about bullying and harassment in the workplace

T

he action against bullying in the workplace is picking up momentum. Employers were made aware last year when Bill 14 passed and became a formal section in the Workers’ Compensation Act that harassment and bullying behaviour is considered unacceptable workplace conduct. And now another milestone looms near. On November 1, 2013 all employers in BC must have a workplace harassment and bullying policy in place that includes procedures for reporting and investigating complaints. In addition, employers must provide training to all their employees and managers so that they can

WORK LIFE

Laurie Mills recognize and respond appropriately to this prohibited behaviour. Work Safe BC’s bold step to include harassment and bullying behaviour under their mandate has been widely covered in the media and it sends a clear message that employers are responsible for managing incidents in their workplaces. It isn’t just that they should take action, as a good employer; it is now a legal re-

quirement that they do so. By legislating employers to have these policies, procedures and training in place, Work Safe BC has ensured that negligence will be considered non-compliance with the WCA, resulting in possible fines. I’m certain no employer wants that kind of stain on their record. For any employer who does not already have it in place, now is the time to get that policy written or updated. Once it’s ready, make sure everyone in the organization is trained on what it means and what their options are if they witness or experience bullying or harassment at work. These two simple steps will ensure compliance, hopefully in

advance of the November 1st deadline. There is also the reality that just because a ha-

rassment and bullying shocking news to anypolicy is in place doesn’t one.) There will always mean everyone follows T:5.67”be people who don’t get it. (Hopefully that isn’t it. That makes it even

Fall into Fashion

Dealing with harassment Mills from A13 and consistent about how policy violations will be handled. WorkSafe BC requires employers to train all employees on the specifics of a formal bullying and harassment policy however exactly what that mandated training looks like is unclear. What a wonderful opportunity. Rather than just going through the motions of a policy review, employers can explore the real intention behind it and use training sessions to encourage open discussions about harassing and bullying behaviour, how it impacts others personally, and its potential to taint the whole workplace climate. Of course there are organizations that are already actively promoting respectful workplace behaviours. They have harassment and bullying policies and procedures already in place with refresher training on those documents occurring regularly. This kind of proactive

approach is commendable and a great way to send a strong message about what kind of professional conduct is expected of employees. With WorkSafe BC’s new compliance requirements, employers are being asked to dedicate more time, money and energy to addressing an issue that can potentially lead to very unhealthy workplaces if left unchecked. Harassment and bullying still happens far too often; it is time for employers to step up to this call for action and find ways to make their organizations safer, healthier places to work. The subject matter in this article is for general informational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon as professional advice.

If a Fortis low-interest “pay-as-you-save” onbill financing energy loan is needed, simply register by gping to: http://www. fortisbc.com/Electricity/ PowerSense/Homes/EfficiencyLoanProgram/ Pages/default.aspx” http://www.fortisbc.com/ electricity/powersense/ homes/efficiencyloanprogram/pages/default. aspx and fill out the application form. If a pay-as-you-save loan on your Fortis bill is not required, simply reregister your existing or your last energy assessment with Livesmart BC at http://www.livesmartbc.ca and begin your energy upgrades. Obviously everyone who has a crawl space in their home will have already upgraded by increasing their insulation by r 23 as the $2,000 federal and provincial grant would have covered the insulation upgrade including labour and material, in most cases. The only reason that homeowners would not do the crawl space upgrade is if they did not understand that they could save 30 per cent to 35 per cent on their energy bill or it was not in their budget at the time to come up with the average $2,000 for the installation costs. Because of the upfront cost, many used this “no-brainer” energy improvement as the federal and provincial grants covered the total upgrade costs. So many homeowners who took advantage of the upgrade are saving huge dollars on their energy bills. Unfortunately there have been cases where “rogue” energy advisors have not recommended attic and or crawl space insulation for various reasons. You should be suspicious if a licensed energy advisor did not recommend insulation up-

grades, especially if they told you to do other upgrades in lieu of insulation and particularly if they recommended any company, or companies, providing any other type of upgrade. Although the practice of referring a company is strictly prohibited by the protocols and procedures from Natural Resources Canada, it has on occasions happened. Anyone who may have had this type of service from an energy assessment company licensed by Natural Resources Canada would have a very strong claim to both federal and provincial grant incentives offered in previous programs because the homeowners were following the advice offered by a government-licensed energy evaluation company. However, those who did not understand the insulation upgrade recommendation (on the front page of the energy assessment report) or could not manage to come up with the upfront costs can now take advantage of the new incentives and the Fortis energy upgrade loan pro-

gram. The Fortis loan program is excellent as it allows homeowners and, or, tennants to do the energy upgrades right away and immediately start saving on their energy bills. The pay-as-you-save loan is simply added to your hydro bill and the offset energy savings can actually pay for the upgrades straight away. This is because the bill, in many cases will be lower than your previous bills without the energy upgrades. Another great thing about the program, and a bonus, is that you also get the new grant incentives from the B.C. Livesmart program. Qualifying homes that increase their crawl space insulation by r 23 will receive $800, while you can receive up to $600 for upgrading your attic insulation to r 50. Homes that have not had a previous energy assessment from a federally certified energy company will have to have an initial home energy audit prior to doing any upgrades to qualify for the grant incentives and the fortis energy loan program. The cost of the audits are subsidised in B.C. and vary from $60 to $150. Homes built before 1994 typically have only r12 or less in the attic and no insulation in the crawl space as that was the building code at the time. Still wondering wether or not you want to take advantage of the new programs or if you qualify? Simply look in your attic: If your overall insulation coverage level is 4” or less in depth then you will qualify for the $600 B.C. Livesmart incentive if you increase this level to r50. If you have a crawl space, you already qualify for the incentive of $800 if you add r23 insulation no matter what your insulation level is at this time (typically zero if the home was built before 1994). This is because it is known that homes with crawl spaces lose up to 35 per cent of heating and cooling costs through this area and the goal is to reduce energy consumption.

Seeking a life balance between working and caregiving

I

remember going back to work when my maternity leave was over after my second child. There were many days when it was difficult to walk out the door and feel confident that the paid babysitter was doing a good enough job. Having had many carefree years now of not worrying about such things, I find myself again feeling the pangs of guilt around balancing caring for my aging mom while working full-time running my own business. It seems to be easy to fall back into the old superwoman role, running myself ragged trying to do my best for my mom, the rest of my family and my clients, and suddenly forgetting about my own needs in the process. Who would have thought that those old familiar feelings would return? I am certainly not alone. In a report entitled Balancing Paid Work and Caregiving Responsibilities: A Closer Look at Family Caregivers in Canada, it states that one in four employed Canadians care for an elderly dependent. One in five (16.8 per cent) employed Canadians have responsibility for both childcare and eldercare, and almost one in four are spending more

SENIORS’ CONCERNS

Work-life balance has taken on a whole new meaning for many baby boomers who thought that striving for this would be a thing of the past as we age ourselves. As you have often heard: “You can only understand what it is like being a parent when you become one.” So it is as well when caring for an elderly person who is completely depending on you. The above report cites that employees who care for elderly dependents can be considered “at risk” of experiencing a unique type of worklife conflict referred to as caregiver strain. This is a multi-dimensional construct (physical, financial and emotional strain) which is defined in terms of “burdens” or changes in the caregivers’ day-to-day lives that can be attributed to the need to provide care. The ripple effect of the burgeoning number of

caregiving roles. For example, employed caregivers require understanding and sensitivity from their employer to deal with the uncertainty arising from the caregiving situation. Specifically, access to alternative work arrangements and flexibility with respect to time off is much appreciated by these employees to reduce stress while accommodating their elder’s needs. Looking through the financial lens, there are strategies to compensate the working caregiver. The federal Compassionate Care Benefit provides financial assistance for families giving end of life care to a relative. Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto has recently been awarded a fiveyear, $2.84 million federal grant to develop a comprehensive training scheme that will provide “working caregivers” with strategies to care for aging loved ones with cognitive disabilities —all in their own workplace and even on company time. This program will be developed through a partnership between Mount Sinai, the federal government and private sector innovators and is a great step towards recognizing that caring for our elders and their family carers is worthwhile. Accessing resources is a primary foundation to address the issue of worklife balance and stress reduction for caregivers on a personal level. Using your voice and your story is also important to effect change on the community and provincial level. I will explore this further in Part Two on this topic in my next bi-weekly column.

SPORTS ▼ BCFC SEMI-FINAL

Sun team ‘played their butts off’ but lost to Rams Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It wasn’t the way it was all supposed to end for this year’s version of the Okanagan Sun. But as the players and coaching staff lingered on their home turf at the Apple Bowl on Sunday, dreams of a championship were replaced by thoughts of the future for several players who closed out their junior football careers and for Sun head coach Shane Beatty. The Sun dropped a 2413 decision to the Langley Rams on Sunday in the BCFC semi-final matchup at the Apple Bowl. “It was a hard fought game but I knew this

would be a battle,” said Beatty after the game. “We did everything we could to shut them down. I thought our kids played their butts off. We played hard in every facet of the game but unfortunately we came out on the wrong end. It was a heck of a game.” The Rams won the game on the ground, amassing over 250 yards of rushing while the Sun were forced to take to the air after an early-game injury to starting running back Alex Bradley. Okanagan ended the game with just 76 yards on the ground. Beatty said his defense did a good job but missed a few opportunities that

OKANAGAN Sun players Devon Kozar (right) and Ethan Backer after Sunday’s playoff loss to Langley ended the Okanagan Sun’s season. could have changed the game. “We tried to take away certain parts of the run and I thought we did a good job,” he said. “We missed two or three (interceptions) we should have had. Those aren’t characteristic of us. We usually make those. It just wasn’t

our day.” After lingering on the field and in the Sun dressing room for the final time this season players took to social media to express their thoughts after their season ended. “Couldn’t ask for a better group of guys to spend the year with. Can’t

imagine what coach has in store for us next year. Love you all,” tweeted Sun defender Jack Rush. And what Beatty did in his first year as the Sun’s head coach appears to be revive faith in the team after several tumultuous years of uncertainty on the sidelines.

The team played with grit and determination and Beatty says he will be back at work Tuesday getting ready for next year. “This year was a huge step in the right direction,” said Beatty. “I thought we could go a long way with these kids. Our goal is to win it all. I’m going to go

out in the off season and look at some programs to see what we can do to shore up some things. We will be back next year and we will be better, I guarantee it.” kparnell @kelownacapnews.com

▼ BMO OKANAGAN MARATHON

Marathon crowns male and female first-time champs Under near perfect conditions on Sunday, the 19th running of the BMO Okanagan Marathon saw first-time winners on both the men’s and women’s sides, local runners who claimed titles, veterans who continue to churn out the miles and great stories of perseverance. Camrose runner Bren-

dan Lunty finished first to become the new Okanagan Marathon champion finishing with a time of 2:30:28, the best time at the event in the past three years. Merritt’s Hans Aabye and Scott Tremblay of Kaleden finished second and third overall. Lunty was thrilled to

win his first ever BMO Okanagan Marathon. “It was absolutely perfect, a great race, I took three full minutes off my personal best time.” Lunty said. “Being the champion feels fantastic. I credit all those four-a.m. wake up calls, there are no short cuts and you have to work hard.”

Lunty started the race in second place, but once he took over the lead he never looked back. “I kept waiting to see if I would crash, but I underestimated myself, the spectators and encouragement I received was incredible,” he said.   On the women’s side, Calgary runner Allison

Blackmore won in her first appearance at the BMO Okanagan Marathon with a personal best time of 3:05:52. It was her first time winning a marathon in her fifth full race. “It felt great out there, the weather was perfect and it’s a beautiful, flat, fast course,” said Black-

more. “It was nice having the cyclists ahead of me to set the pace.” The men’s half marathon also saw a new champion crowned when Matt Mead of Salmon Arm finished first. “It’s a really nice flat, fast, course and there are no words to describe how it felt to win, you could

say, it was awesome,” he said. Spectators lined the course to cheer on the runners and most runners were delighted that the weather conditions were so favourable. Leading a strong contingent of locals was

half marathon. The 10K men’s run was won by Kelowna runner John Gay followed by Kelowna runners Sean Bergman and Jeff Vogt. First place in the women’s event went to Melissa Currie with Kelowna’s Natasha Lunt coming in second followed by Chelsea Bergman also of Kelowna. As always, the marathon featured runners of all stripes taking part. Trevor Wakelin of White Court, AB, completed his goal of completing his 70th marathon in a time of 4:15. Wakelin was diagnosed with ALS in 2010 and was thrilled with the support he felt on the course from his friends and family who pushed him in his wheelchair the entire 42.2K distance.

“It was great. I’m grateful to everyone who ran for me today. I had so many people cheering me on. It has been an incredible experience for me and I have met wonderful people and close friends along the road,” he said. His brother Neil Wakelin completed his 140th marathon by pushing Trevor across the finish line. “Trevor was in great spirits,” said Neil. “We were keeping a good pace with four people running the whole distance and 20 people involved in Team Trevor in total. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.”  Kelowna oncologist, Dr. Juanita Crock was thrilled to cross the finish line after collecting pledges totalling $77,000 for a new program to treat can-

cer research at the Kelowna Cancer Centre. “I was out of gas for the last half an hour but very relieved to have finished.” Crock said. “The new program is a different way of treating women with breast cancer with radiation and I am delighted to have raised the money for the British Columbia Cancer Foundation.” As many as 3,500 participants took part in the weekend-long family festival and Boston qualifying event. Saturday welcomed the Running Room’s Free Friendship Run, 5K, and the 2nd annual BMO ABC Kids Run with more than 200 youngsters completing the 1K event. Sunday featured the 10K, half marathon and marathon.

Chiefs host Posse tonight; Ok Rockets host Ice weekend The Kelowna Chiefs are back in action tonight (Tuesday, Oct. 15) as they play host to the Princeton Posse at the Rutland Arena. The Chiefs improved to 6-3-0-1 on the weekend beating the Summerland Steam 3-2 on Friday night in Summerland with a solid third period. After the Chiefs Dylan Jamieson and Summerland’s Olli Dickson exchanged goals through the first two periods, Kelowna pushed ahead with an excellent third period.  Jamieson netted his second of the night at 11:41 of the third fol-

lowed by goal from Nick Josephs to give Kelowna a 3-1 lead.  Summerland wouldn’t go down without a fight with a goal late from Braden Saretsky but goalie Connor DeMelo held the fort and earned the win after facing a total of 36 shots.  It was the only game

of the weekend for the Chiefs. Kelowna and Princeton drop the puck at 7 tonight at Rutland Arena. ••• The Okanagan Rockets of the B.C. Major Midget League were idle on Thanksgiving weekend and are back on home ice this coming weekend. The Rockets will host the Kootenay Ice for a pair of games at the Capital News Centre this weekend, playing Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. The Rockets are 5-1-0 so far this season.

SPORTS ▼ WHL

Rockets D rack up the points CONTRIBUTED

When Madison Bowey and Damon Severson each scored Friday night against the Seattle Thunderbirds, it was the continuation of an early season trend for the Western Hockey League’s Rockets. Through just eight games, the Rockets blueliners lead the WHL in offensive contributions. The trio of Bowey (4), Severson (3) and Riley Stadel (4), have been responsible for all 11 of the rearguard goals, with all four of Stadel’s coming on the man advantage. His four powerplay markers actually put him second in the entire WHL, regardless of position. “It’s nice to see the

defense contribute offensively,” said Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert. “Part of that is when we have been shooting from the point our forwards have done a good job creating screens to make life harder on opposition goalies.” There has been 100 goals scored by defensemen in the WHL this season, for an average of 4.5 per the 22 teams in the league. This Wednesday’s opponent, the Lethbridge Hurricanes, have managed just two goals from the back end thus far. The fact that Jesse Lees, who scored 12 goals from the point last year, is yet to score is all the more encouraging for the Rockets when considering the chances of continuing this trend. Defensive stalwart

Mitchell Wheaton is also expected to return from injury soon, which could free up the likes of Bowey and Severson for more offensive creativity. The Rockets have long been known for their defensive core, producing a number of tremendous NHLers. The defensive corps of the 2003 WHL Championship winning team is often regarded as the golden standard, and rightfully so. That blueline had Duncan Keith, Josh Gorges, Shea Weber, Brett Palin, Mike Card, and Tomas Slovak, who scored 18 times that season. They totalled 53 goals, the highest total output of any defense in Rockets history.  This year’s group is on pace for 99. The defense of this

edition of the Rockets will be leaned on heavily throughout the season to not only contribute offensively, but also take care of the defensive zone in front of goaltenders Jordan Cooke and Jackson Whistle. Through eight games, the Rockets have allowed 26 goals; good for fourth in the WHL Western Conference. The Rockets are back in action on Wednesday as they continue a four game home stand that began on Friday night with a 4-3 shoot-out loss at the hands of Seattle. Kelowna plays Lethbridge on Wednesday, Prince George on Saturday and Calgary on Oct. 22 before heading out on a four game road trip.

Kapustra is a quiet, social kitty who would love the chance to be the next addition to your loving family. She is ok with other cats and will roll over when real happy.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen fall comforts As the weather cools off and the days get shorter, comfort meals like stews and braised meat are a filling treat for those who have been working or playing outside. They’re meals I don’t generally crave when the weather is hot, but as soon as there’s a nip in the air, I delight in changing my diet to more hearty food with the mellow flavours of fall. As our gardens yield the last fresh herbs and tomatoes, garlic, carrots, onions and potatoes of the season, it’s only natural to toss them into a pot with a chunk of flavourful meat to cook away over time and release wonderful aromas to tempt the taste buds. Earthy root vegetables stand up well to braising and stewing, as do the less-expensive, but also less-tender cuts of beef like blade, round, shank or short ribs. If you don’t have the time to spend in the house giving a stew the occasional stir, brown the meat and toss all the ingredients into a slow cooker, leave it all day and you’ll have a delicious meal by supper time, with little last-minute effort. We recently had the kids and grandkids over to help with some yard work, and everyone stayed to dinner. It was an easy one, because I made it up in the morning, before anyone had arrived, popped it into my crockpot and covered it for the day. At the last minute, a few spuds were boiled up, some beans from the garden steamed, and dinner was served. Everyone raved about the aromas emanating from the house during the afternoon, and they said the meal met their expectations after a day of hard work outside. I’ve included it here. You’ll find many more fall comfort food recipes in my book, Jude’s Kitchen, available locally at Mosaic Books, the Wine Industry Museum, Calona Wines and Quails Gate Estate Winery in West Kelowna.

Denny's Hunter's Stew The aromas make your mouth water as this is cooking. It’s a wonderful greeting for visitors or family who've been active outside in cooler weather. Serve with boiled potatoes, pasta or fresh bread or rolls. This heats up really well for a quick second meal a couple of days later. This could be a stew, a roast or a steak dinner. Pair it with a full-bodied B.C. VQA Shiraz or Syrah red wine. 3 lb. (1.4 kg) beef seasoned flour mixture drizzle of oil 2 cloves garlic 28 oz. (796 ml) tomatoes 6 peppercorns 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh oregano 1 tsp. (5 ml) fresh tarragon 1 tsp. (5 ml) fresh basil 6 small onions 2 ribs celery 10 carrots 8 mushrooms Pre-heat oven to 325 F. Choose simmering cuts of roast or steak,

or stew meat, either beef or a game such as venison or moose. In fact, you could cook a chicken and call it cacciatore... Dredge the meat in flour seasoned with salt and pepper, then brown in a large ovensafe pot or Dutch oven in a skim of oil, adding chopped garlic near the end. Add tin of tomatoes, fresh ones from the garden, or some you froze last summer, chopped herbs and other seasonings. Stir and bring the mixture to a boil before covering and putting in the oven for three hours or so in total. Or, you could put it all—vegetables as well—into the crockpot once you've browned the meat, and let it simmer for eight hours or so, covered. For the last hour or two of oven cooking, add the small whole onions, or large, chopped ones; chopped celery, pieces of carrot and whole mushrooms. Vary the vegetables to your taste. If the meat is eaten and just tomatoes and vegetables are left use the sauce as a base for soup the next day, or for a pasta sauce. Serves 8-10.

Beef Stew with Red Wine This makes a quick and easy meal for when you’ll be out all day. Or, it can be made on top of the stove if you’ll be around. Double the recipe to make enough for a second meal. I used Copper Moon Shiraz in this, and served it alongside. Economical and excellent. We love the addition of grated potatoes for both flavour and to thicken this stew. 2 lb. (1 kg) stew beef 2 tbsp. (30 ml) flour salt and pepper, to taste drizzle of oil 2 c. (250 ml) beef broth 6 carrots 4 celery stalks 2 onions 2 large garlic cloves 1 c. (250 ml) red wine 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh thyme 2 tsp. (10 ml) fresh tarragon 2 tsp. (10 ml) fresh oregano 1 bay leaf 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh parsley

4 medium potatoes Dredge cubes of beef ( I like small ones, a half-inch or so) in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper and brown quickly, in batches, in a little hot oil, then put into crockpot or slow cooker, or set aside, if cooking the stew in that pot. Pour beef broth into the pot and scrape in any browned bits, and stir well. Return browned beef chunks to the pot. Chop vegetables into chunks and mince garlic. Add to beef. Add wine and herbs. You could tie fresh herbs together in a ‘bouquet garni’ and tuck into the centre of the stew, to be retrieved before serving…) If cooking in a crockpot, cover and simmer on low for eight hours or so, but if cooking in a Dutch oven on top of the stove, or in a regular oven, cook on low for a couple of hours. To thicken and add flavour, grate four scrubbed potatoes into the stew, stirring in well and cook for an hour or two longer. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serves 8.

Forty-six West Kelowna residents have told their stories and shared their frustrations with health care services in West Kelowna since an initial call for submissions was put out last month. But the West Kelowna Residents Association knows there are many more people than that who want to see change. Last month, the WKRA asked residents to help identify gaps and problems with existing health care services on the Westside. The residents association has agreed to gather the feedback on behalf of Joanne Konnert, the consultant hired by the District of West Kelowna to prepare a report on the proposed Westside health facility. “I think Ms. Konnert is probably expecting a larger number,” said WKRA director Ron Green. “At the last public meeting we had on the subject, we had 245 people there.” Green said the responses so far have given

The West Kelowna teenager currently on trial for murder will finally tell her version of the events that left one of her peers dead, and turned a quiet Peachland street into a chaotic crime scene. The 18-year-old, whose name is under a publication ban, is alleged to have stabbed Ashlee Hyatt, 16, in her neck after an argument at a June 2, 2010, party. It’s a story that Crown counsel Murray Kaay assembled a number of witnesses to tell from varying angles, but defence lawyer Ingrid Friesen pointed out Friday that none of those viewpoints added up to a complete picture. “You as a jury will be the first to hear her side of the story—she wants very much to tell it,” Friesen told a B.C. Supreme Court jury Friday. “She’s been waiting two years to tell it.” The accused, who defence described as a “new girl trying to fit in at a new school,” has seen her point of view be absent in the last two weeks of trial, as even RCMP officers who dealt with the investigation failed to offer her perspective on what happened that night. What the jury has learned from teen witnesses who were there, however, is that the accused kissed a boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. This apparently upset Hyatt and the two started exchanging verbal barbs, which escalated to further pushing on the street, and eventually Hyatt was fatally wounded. Continuing on with the altercation, however, was the teenage host of the party. The defence has already suggested she was the one who brought the knife to the fight between the accused and Hyatt, and Friday two witnesses took the witness stand to highlight the teenage host’s behaviour in the aftermath and leading up to the fatal altercation. They also called upon George Young, who lives adjacent to the party house, to give testimony. Young testified he was brought into the fray when he heard a teenage boy in the street talking into his cellphone, saying, “It’s going down, it’s going down, it’s happening now.”

he day’s last light was fading and the first flakes of snow were falling outside the window, when a large black bear came ambling down the slope into the flower bed. There he began vigorously digging a hole, tossing plants aside as he went. A loud rap on the window sent him scurrying through the trees to the road, but the damage had been done in the garden. What if someone had come around the corner of the house and surprised that big animal? Others tell of watching as a large black bear ambled up their residential street, systematically exploring every driveway for garbage bins left out or other treats to eat, knocking over bins and laying down in the mess of trash in the road, while chewing on whatever was available.
