Some hunters ignoring the rules Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Conservation Officers have been kept busy this week dealing with hunting violations in the Kelowna area. So they advise hunters to check their regulations before heading out, and remember what they learned in their firearms course. In fact, CO Sgt. Josh Lockwood says two instructors of the Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education program, which hunters are required to take, were charged this week with violations of the rules they teach. Neither were local instructors, he said. In the past few days they’ve suspended the driver’s licences of three hunters for alcohol use

Action group tackles issues faced by homeless Westside youth Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Several West Kelowna residents aren’t letting the issue of youth homelessness get moved to the back burner. Rev. Louise Cummings of Westbank

United Church was part of the group that organized the West Kelowna Youth Homelessness Forum at Westbank Lions Community Centre last May. Since then, good things have been happening, according to Cummings.

Prior to the forum, three meals per month were being provided to the Westside Youth Centre by churches in the area. More churches jumped on board after the forum and now eight meals per month are being provided. In early September

The Okanagan Boys’ and Girls’ Club Westside Youth Centre was closed after a suspected arsonist set fire to Westbank Lions Community Centre. According to Cummings, the youth centre has been temporarily relocated to a rented

space within Westbank United Church. She said the space is currently being utilized every day by about eight to 20 kids. “Part of the challenge for them here is that they don’t have the pool tables—things to do are pretty limited here,” said

Cummings. “But the main thing is that they have a safe place to be with each other where they can access the staff and get in touch with the services they need. “What we hear is that the kids who need it most are the ones who are com-

New water licences issued on fully allocated reservoirs Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Although the Beaver Lake (Swalwell Lake) reservoir system was deemed fully allocated by the province’s water management branch in 1931, it has still issued a further 500 or so licences on the system since then, including 14 this summer. The recent decision by the province to issue more licenses led to an appeal by the District of Lake Country, and a hearing was held last week by an environmental appeal panel, with hydrologist Don Dobson, of Urban Systems, representing the district. Dobson said the panel’s decision might take a couple of months, but he’s not overly hopeful it will be successful after a similar appeal made by the South East Kelowna Irrigation District was denied earlier this year. In that case recreational lot lessees on Browne Lake, one of SEKID’s reservoir lakes, were successful in obtaining domestic water licences even though that system of reservoirs is deemed to be fully allocated, so SEKID appealed. That appeal was denied, although some changes to the existing conditions of the licences were required. Dobson, who worked


ALTHOUGH its water is already over-allocated, the province has issued more licences on Beaver (Swalwell) Lake, a reservoir for residents of the District of Lake Country. in water management for the province in the early 1980s and still does hydrologic work in the Okanagan, said the issue is that the province is issuing water licences on

water that’s already licensed. “That’s double licensing,” he says. “Those reservoirs exist because the ratepayers built the system and pay to maintain

it, including paying for the capital costs of the infrastructure, yet these people pay for none of that and they get to use it. “It’s about fairness and equity.”

Tree makeover at Rutland Lions Park Local residents are asked to bring their shovels and garden gloves to dig in and help finish one of the City of Kelowna’s largest tree planting projects. The last of 83 trees will be planted at Rutland Lions Park from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 19, and the city needs your help. A variety of coniferous and deciduous trees are being planted to replace almost all of the Ponderosa pine trees that were destroyed by mountain pine beetle in recent years.

Residents can help parks staff bring the urban forest back to life— with or without a shovel. Just meet at the cenotaph in the park to find out how. “This is an exciting opportunity for Rutland and its residents,” said Laurel D’Andrea, executive director at the Uptown Rutland Business Association. “Our community is being revitalized in so many ways. “By participating in the tree planting event at Rutland Lions Park, residents can directly contrib-

ute to restoring the historic park and enhancing our community.” The Rutland Lions Park reforestation project is made possible because of a recent grant from Tree Canada’s TD Green Streets program. The tree planting will coincide with a funding presentation at 10 a.m. when representatives from Tree Canada will present a cheque to the City of Kelowna.     Rutland Lions Park is located at 205 Gray Rd. behind the Plaza 33 shopping centre.

He said there’s more demand than there is water in the system, and he does not feel the 14 lessees on Beaver and Crooked Lakes who received water licences this

summer should have been issued those licences. There are some 80 leased recreational lots in that watershed and 12 of them now have water licences.

Several of the lease-holders said they only applied for the licence because the province encouraged them to, said Dobson. They said they’d been drawing water from the reservoir for 20 years or so and they intended to continue no matter what. At last week’s hearing the panel agreed to hear a submission from Okanagan Indian Band chief Byron Louis and Dobson said he objected that the band had not been notified about the licenses. He told the panel the process the government uses to allocate licences is broken because the system is over-allocated yet the province is still issuing more licences. Major problems with fish in the creek downstream have resulted from the low water conditions, he noted. Dobson said the provincial water manager claimed there was unused recorded water every year in the system so that could be used by others. However, Dobson said that is just carryover in case of a drought. He noted that the amount of water being requested is not large, but in principle no more licences should be issued if the system is already fully-licenced.

West Kelowna Warriors and Home Depot to assist local food bank The West Kelowna Warriors junior hockey team will be joining forces Saturday with the West Kelowna Home Depot store for a worthy cause. The two are combining with the West Kelowna Community Food Bank to host Community Day in the Home Depot parking lot from noon to 2:30 p.m. • Youth workshops with Home Depot

Kelowna Museums to host fall harvest fair The Grow Local Fall Fair will present a mixture of local consumers, farmers and artisans together with live entertainment on Saturday, Oct. 19. Organized by Kelowna Museums, the Grow Local Fall Fair is a family fun event that aims to promote local products and produce through a variety of exhibitions, performances and vendors. “Grow Local will be taking the Cherry and Apple Fairs and combining them to create a larger fall harvest fair. This has been a year of exciting changes for the Kelowna Museums,” said Lindsay Canning, marketing co-

ordinator for the Kelowna Museums. “Over the last couple of years, the community has been asking us for something different, something that takes into account the changes taking place in environmental awareness, food production awareness and the push towards supporting all things local. “While the Cherry and Apple Fairs did bring attention to those issues, they weren’t providing the level of discussion that is currently taking place regarding these issues, we feel that Grow Local will provide the information to keep the spark, in this al-

ready hot topic, alive.” Canning said Kelowna is all about local farming—it’s what pushed the quick growth of the Okanagan Valley. “It’s hard to find another area in B.C. that produces such a large variety of produce, for such an extended period of time,” Canning said. “Everything we need is right in our own back yards. Sustainable living is not as difficult as most would think. “We just need to be informed on where we can acquire this produce in our own neighbourhoods, and that’s where Grow Local comes in.”

Among the fair participants will be Quality Farms providing educational hatch-a-chick program kits, The Central Okanagan Food Policy Council, Master Gardeners, Bees Inc., BC Tree Fruits Cooperative, Basket Case Picnic, Ladybug Creations, Valcraft, Love it Again, Quill Skywritings, Westbank Harvest, Okanagan Regional Library, Kelowna Free Graze Lamb, Honest Goodness, and Sheela’s Mehndi Henna Tattoos/ Shabby Boushique. The Grow Local Fall Fair will be held at the Laurel Packinghouse, located in downtown Ke-

lowna, 1304 Ellis St. Doors open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $2/person or $5/family (two adults and two children). This event is a great opportunity to meet our local food growers and producers, and take the time to check out the Kelowna Museums children’s corner where there will be a variety of activities, storytelling and songs. For more information about Grow Local, call Christina Neale at 250763-2417, ext.28 or visit the website

Action from A1 fit from provincial youth agreements. According to George Curran, program director with ARC Programs Ltd., youth agreements are legal agreements between young people and the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development that provide funding to help youth find a place to live. “The kids have to demonstrate significant issues in their lives to be able to come on,” said Curran. Those who are 16 to 18 and don’t have a parent or relative willing to take responsibility for them, or can’t return home for safety reasons, are potential candidates for youth agreements. The agreements allow the youth to live in a shared accommodation with a family that has signed up for the program. Typically, the youth are given a bedroom with access to a bathroom and a kitchen. “Typically it’s not a suite or anything like that…lots of times it might be families who’ve

(had) somebody go off to university, or it’s a friend’s parents’ house.” Landlords who sign up for the program are given about $375 per month for offering their space. Curran said around 20 to 25 Central Okanagan youth may be utilizing youth agreements at any given time; approximately 20 per cent of those youth live in West Kelowna. “We’ve always had a more difficult time housing kids on the Westside—it’s harder for us to recruit landlords.” Curran added it’s difficult to place West Kelowna youth—who may work and go to school in West Kelowna—in Rutland or other areas of Kelowna because they have limited transportation options. Those who are interested in learning more about the youth agreements program, or who want to look into sharing their accommodation with youth in need, can phone ARC Programs youth services staff at 250-763-3039.

Interest in decriminalizing marijuana has local momentum

Local proponents of a gB.C.-wide petition to demarijuana -criminalize possession said last week lthey have signed up onethird of the 16,000 regisrtered voters they need in the Central Okanagan’s three provincial ridings to help prompt a referendum on the issue. Mark Conlin, local spokesman for Sensible B.C., which is running the petition drive under B.C.’s referendum and recall law, described the collection here at the one-third mark of the 30-day campaign as “right on track.” “There is no sense of panic here,” said Conlin, adding his group is aiming to collect the signatures of 20,000 registered voters to make sure it more than meets the requirement of 10 per cent in each B.C. riding. Conlin said with the Dec. 8 deadline still two months way, response to the petition has been, for the most part, well received by the public. He said while there

have been some who respond negatively, for the most part those who sign are happy to do so, even if they do not use marijuana. If the petition—similar to one that led to the referendum that killed the Harmonized Sales Tax in B.C—is successful, it would prompt the government to either agree to hold a province-wide referendum or put that decision to a vote in the B.C. Legislature. Sensible B.C.’s twopart request for the proposed referendum would be for the B.C. government to instruct the police in this province not to prosecute individuals for possession of small amounts of marijuana (under one ounce) if it is for personal use and to start negotiating with the federal government to legalize marijuana use in Canada. It would not change current prohibitions about drug use by drivers or using pot in public, said Conlin. He added the first part would be similar to what 16 states in the U.S. cur-

rently do. In addition, two states, Colorado and Washington, have legalized marijuana. Conlin said the pot petition proponents learned from organizers of the HST petition and have used many of the same tactics to gather support, including starting early to gauge support, even before the official 90-day signature collection period. He said he is confident this area will meet the 10 per cent requirement in each of the three local ridings—Kelowna-Mission, Kelowna-Lake Country and Westside-Kelowna. Westside-Kelowna, where he is the co-ordinator of the Sensible B.C. campaign, is represented in the B.C. Legislature by Premier Christy Clark. The government has not said what it will do if the petition campaign is successful and in the past has said the issue of marijuana possession is a federal matter because Ottawa, not Victoria, has jurisdiction over the Criminal Code. Despite that, Conlin

Overall provincial marijuana petition campaign off target at 30-day mark Jeff Nagel CONTRIBUTOR

Pot reformers fell short of their sign-up target for the first third of their campaign to force a provincial referendum on marijuana enforcement. Sensible BC spokesman Dana Larsen said the campaign had 65,000 signatures as of Oct. 9 —15,000 less than their aim of 80,000 by the 30day mark of the 90-day petition drive. “We’re a little bit behind the target we set,” Larsen said, adding getting canvassers officially registered has proven more onerous than expected. But he remains confident the campaign can succeed in getting the signatures of 10 per cent of eligible voters in every B.C. district. That would take 300,000 signatures in total, but Larsen said the aim is for 450,000 or 15 per cent in each riding to provide a buffer against signatures that are declared invalid. A7

Defeat in any single district means the petition campaign fails. And even if it succeeds, a referendum is not automatic—the legislature could introduce the proposed Sensible Policing Act but not put it to

a vote. If it was sent to another referendum it could be non-binding—the HST referendum after a successful Fight HST petition was binding only because Premier Gordon Campbell declared it so.

said the campaign is being conducted in what he called a “professional” manner in order to get businesses, public institutions and the general public onside. However, it has yet to be allowed on the Okanagan College campus or at Kelowna General Hospital. But there are several permanent signature collection sites and a roving collection site here. There is a plan to start a second roving collection site. The permanent sites include The Grateful Fed restaurant on Bernard Avenue, local Hemp City outlets in Kelowna and West Kelowna, two Rosie’s Grape Stomp outlets and two locations of Sun City Vapours. There are currently 142 canvassers working on the campaign throughout the three local ridings, up from the 100 who started the campaign here one month ago.

Impact of copper toxicity A lzheimer’s disease is characterized by large plaques in the brain composed of amyloid-beta as well as neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid-beta plaques, when bound to copper, are a strong source of free radical damage. Seniors are losing their golden years to dementia from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The prevalence of AD in our aging population is frightening, affecting 10, 20 and 30 per cent of those over the age of 60, 70 and 80 respectively. Organic copper is food-based, tightly bound to food proteins, well metabolized by the liver, and safe. Low levels of copper are essential for good health. However, inorganic copper is a simple salt of copper, used to make wire, sheet metal, pennies and plumbing pipes. Inorganic copper can bypass the liver and deposit directly into the


Emina Jasarevic blood stream as “free copper,” which is unsafe. Inorganic copper is also found in nutritional supplements and largely leached into drinking water via copper plumbing. Research in 2003 found the smallest addition of 0.12 parts per million (ppm) copper added to distilled drinking water greatly increased AD brain pathology and impaired the cognitive ability in rabbit models. A 2006 follow-up study showed that copper added to drinking water increased brain levels of amyloid beta in both beagles and mice. A further study in 2007 found that mice consuming copper-containing water of 0.12 ppm had 33

per cent more amyloid beta in their brains and twice as much copper in the cells lining the blood vessels of their brains, than the control group. For reference, the Environmental Protection Agency allows 1.3 ppm copper in human drinking water, over 10 times the amount found to be toxic in animal AD models. During reproductive years, adequate amounts of copper are important. Copper is an essential trace mineral, is a cofactor for enzymes and antioxidants, is involved in structural stability of bone, cartilage, skin and tendons, and in the elasticity of lungs, blood vessels and skin. It is required for the synthesis of hemoglobin and in regulating cholesterol. After age 50, however, “normal” levels of copper are too high and contribute to diseases of aging, including cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcers and Alzheimer’s disease.

A 2010 study of AD patients found a mild cognitive impairment risk increase of 24 per cent for each free copper unit (mol/L) increment measured on a blood test. Of course, there are other predisposing factors to AD, such as a high fat diet, high red meat consumption, genetics, zinc deficiency (zinc protects brain neurons from oxidative damage), etc., but a blood test should be considered for anyone with symptoms of mild cognitive impairment. Ceruloplasmin (Cp) is a copper-containing protein secreted by the liver into the blood, accounting for 90 per cent of total plasma copper. So a combined blood copper and blood Cp test is a good marker of body copper status. The ultimate treatment for copper toxicity begins with removing copper-ingested sources. Choose a multivitamin free of copper if you are over the age of 60, and consider chelation therapy—an intravenous therapy offered by most naturopathic doctors.

strongly influenced by a religion which saw suicide as a direct defiance of God’s will. Until 1823, English law provided Paul that the body of a Hergott person taking their own life was to be placed at the crossroads of two highways with a stake driven through it. Just like much had to be done to set the stage for Armstrong’s first step on the moon, much has been done to set the stage for the federal government to find the political will to “take part in the conversation.” Most recently, we have the impassioned plea of Dr. Donald Low, a prominent Canadian microbiologist, in a video he recorded before his own death. The “conversation” was within a hair’s breadth of being forced on the federal government by the Supreme Court of Canada in the case brought by Sue Rodriguez. Rodriguez was an ALS victim who challenged the law which threatened her ability to legally die with dignity. It was by a slim majority of 5-4 that the law was not struck down by our highest court in September 1993. Another lawsuit is making its


hose words, spoken by U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong as he took the first ever step on the moon, are applicable to an announcement made last week by Canada’s Health Minister Rona Ambrose. Referring to assisted suicide, Ambrose reportedly announced: “I will take part in the conversation. It’s an important conversation to have, and of course all of us have had these conversations around the kitchen table.” Ambrose’s response marks the first step arguably having been taken towards a reformation of Canada’s law on assisted suicide. It is a law that has very, very deep roots, even deeper than the provisions contained within our Criminal Code enacted in 1892. The Criminal Code wasn’t the product of the careful and considered thoughtful debate of law makers. Rather, it largely enshrined prohibitions that had existed for centuries before in the “common law.” We inherited our “common law” from England, law that was

way up the court system, led in part by the now deceased West Kelowna resident Gloria Taylor. I expect the federal government sees the writing on the wall that the next nine-judge panel of the Supreme Court of Canada considering the assisted suicide provisions will almost undoubtedly be striking them down. Credit is owed to the mountain of efforts that have been made over the years by those pushing for the important “conversation” to occur.   Anyone interested in learning about the history of this issue and of that mountain of efforts should read a paper of the Parliamentary Information and Research Service that you can find on line by searching the publication number: 2010-68-E. Just like all the engineering and resources that went into that first step on the moon, the mountain of efforts leading to our federal government entering into the conversation is finally paying off.  I just hope the conversation goes somewhere.

Faster doesn’t make drivers smarter


ead foots and left-lane campers, the province wants to hear from you. The B.C. government is reviewing speed limits for long stretches of highway, and Transportation Minister Todd Stone wants your feedback on how fast is fast enough. The review is not supposed to be about increasing speed limits, but ensuring the province has the correct speed limits in place. Stone, who sees the Co-

quihalla as a likely candidate for a speed-limit adjustment, says the goal is to ensure those who travel B.C.’s rural highways are able to do so as safely and efficiently as possible. Sounds good. And no doubt, those 110 km/h signs along the Coquihalla are already being interpreted by many a driver as 120 km/h. In fact, it’s a safe bet that whatever the decided upon speed limit is, drivers will round

up by 10. The big question mark here is those behind the wheel. Cars may be better constructed, but drivers—not necessarily so. Case in point, according to ICBC, distracted driving—typically fiddling with gadgets while driving—is the cause of about one-quarter of all traffic fatalities in the province. Do you want people texting while doing 130 km/h into the Great Bear

Snowshed? Speaking of cell phones, travel the Coquihalla in winter and you’re certain to see SUVs ditched on the side of the road, their drivers out in the snow on the phone, presumably trying to contact roadside assistance— one of the hazards of not driving to conditions. Which leads us to hope that if speed limits are increased, highway traffic enforcement resources follow suit.

Groups working to improve local accessibility, livability


his week I spent Thanksgiving Monday travelling back to Ottawa. Along the way between Okanagan-Coquihalla and our nation’s capital I met many travellers who were either returning home or on the way to visit with family. Although travelling can be a weary experience it can also be a rewarding one to meet with Canadians from so many different locations and hear thoughts, ideas and concerns for the events and challenges we collectively face. As Parliament returns this week for what will be the second session of this 41st Parliament it will be a very busy week of briefings, meetings with the highlight of the week being the Speech from the Throne on Wednes-

day when our Government laid out the agenda and related priorities for the upcoming session of Parliament. With the House of Commons back in session, my extended summer listening tour will also be concluding and I am extremely grateful for the many citizens who took the time to offer input and share ideas on a range of different and important subjects. Although there are often legislative reasons why some ideas cannot move forward, I am encouraged that I have received some very good suggestions to further re-

search and, if viable, can be presented for possible implementation. I have also had the chance to meet with a number of local groups Dan who are currently Albas planning some valuable community projects that we are currently exploring funding options for. Many of these projects are related to improving accessibility and in some cases will also enhance the livability of our region. This, in my view, is very important. Although often there is discussion in economic terms on the importance


of resource-related jobs and manufacturing locally in the Okanagan, we should not also overlook that there is a vibrant service-related industry that caters to the growing number of citizens who choose to retire or otherwise relocate here. Why I believe it is important that we not overlook this segment of our local economy is because of the fact that if we can increase the livability of our region through increased accessibility through more efficient transit that includes an improved trails network and more public walking paths, we can also encourage a more vibrant and healthy lifestyle. Enhanced arts and cultural opportunities can also be strong factors in

bringing more citizens to the Okanagan and also increasing the diversity of our local citizens. In turn all of these factors also help generate increased small business activities and creates more employment. We have much to be thankful for in the Okanagan and many groups and citizens throughout our region who have identified projects that overall will benefit our region. At times it can be easy to oppose some of these projects and ideas if it is not something we may use personally; however, expanding our thinking to the overall betterment of our region will pay dividends to us all.

Fall Chow Mein Dinner 2013

Few selfish Youngster disses senior drivers speeders wreck an easy drive along Glenmore for everyone


To the editor: I am intrigued by some of the letters to your paper expressing a reluctance to raise speed limits on certain roads. I understand this valley has a very large portion of senior drivers whose reaction times are much less than the younger driver. For those who are afraid to drive at the posted speed or above, I have no problem as long as they keep to the right lane on multi-lane roads or use pull outs on two lane highways.

It is the slow driver that causes accidents as those with the skill need to make often dangerous passes to get around those who still think they are driving a 1947 Chevy on the old Fraser canyon highway, which was one lane wide in many spots. Today’s cars and roads are so much better, only the drivers have not improved. The inconsistencies of posted speeds are a real concern to many drivers and I doubt this review will address that. We all

know of locations where the posted limit is way off base in order to provide the police with a “fishing hole.” Why is a fourlane highway with no side roads posted at 70 km/h (Winfield) while a twolane very twisty road is posted at 100 km/h (Anarchist summit of Hwy 3)? So, Michael Cotton and other seniors, don’t lobby for reduced speeds, just move over and enjoy the scenery. Bruce Stevenson, Kelowna

To the editor: Re: To the people of Glenmore concerning the traffic calming on Snowsell Street. Thanks to all of you who have been speeding on Snowsell Street and to those people who only think of themselves, the rest of us have to suffer. Because of you, the city is going ahead with a

plan to put in traffic calming measures or speed bumps. I have tried to persuade city hall to change their minds, but with no success. I hope in the future you will think twice before you ruin the good things we have. Henry Johnson, Kelowna

Hockey loses its appeal with violence

To the editor: Re: Violence in hockey games.   I used to enjoy a good hockey game but with so many serious concussions and other injuries it is not so interesting anymore. We would go to the Kelowna games and sure enough, a fight or three would break out. All the fans stand up to get a better look to see how the fight is going. Do fans go to the games just to see the fights or do they go to see the puck moved about with great skill and finesse?

During my 43-year working career, I never fought with any of my co-workers nor gave anyone a concussion or fat lip or black eye. If I had I would have automatically lost my professional papers and my job as well as any hope for future employment. On top of this, WCB would be on the case as well. Is it legal to hurt a fellow employee at work? In the past few years there has also been quite a few really “cheap shots” where players were hit

from the side or from the back and suffered serious injury. I can still remember the game where a player was deliberately pushed into the steel support along the rink—I can still hear the ring of the head injury and it was just awful to watch. The media was sure to play it many times on TV to make sure we all had a good look.  Now, we read that the new hockey recruits are getting fewer and fewer as parents weigh the possibility that their little “Johnny” might receive

a life altering concussion on the ice even before he might have a chance for the pros. It could be that the game is slowly dying out. It is somewhat the same as high speed car racing: Fans really go there to see someone killed or burned in a massive pileup—that is when the crowd really takes notice and stands up.  The best hockey game in my recollection was the women’s Olympic game—very good playing and no blood on the ice. What are the owners

afraid of? A change to no fighting in hockey would be good for our children to see. We really don’t need to teach our children that aggression and hurting people “at work” is OK. Watching players make across the precession passes across the ice and intelligent deking about the net, much like Wayne Gretzski used to do, does not get much better. Remember, it is a game and not war. Jorgen Hansen, Kelowna

Taylor parries with Oxford English definitions ‘inflammatory.’ Perhaps Elliott should raise his sights a little higher than an American publication for definitions of English words. The Oxford English Dictionary definitions: “Bullying: ‘Use superior strength or influence to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.’ Harassment: Aggres-

sive pressure or intimidation.” Based on these definitions, I believe that parading signs back and forth in front of the hospital on a Tuesday is therefore, “using influence to intimidate those who are weaker.” I also believe that using emotive language on those signs is aggres-

sive pressure and is intimidating. To revert to the Merriam-Webster definition of harassment: “to annoy or bother (someone) in a constant or repeated way,” three or four sign holders marching back and forth each Tuesday does constitute repeated, constant annoyance for many people.

Your limited comprehension of the English language is forgivable, but I do feel that the next time you wish to lambaste a letter writer; a little more research would be in order so as to avoid appearing ignorant.

I mention many of these points as I have noted that many local initiatives that were initially quite controversial and at times actively opposed by some groups within a community, these projects have largely gone on to become community success stories that in many cases enhance the livability and diversity of our region.

Manage stress tress naturally improve energy, sleep leep Better, Reduce Cravings By Karen Jensen, ND

Our ability to adapt to stress depends upon optimal function of the adrenal glands. When excess stress overloads our adrenal glands symptoms can include: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, low back pain, asthma, allergies, blood sugar problems, hormonal imbalances, irritability, headaches, sugar cravings, gastrointestinal symptoms and inflammatory conditions.

The ‘roots’ of the original AdrenaSense Formula

Throughout my life I had good health and boundless energy and then suddenly in my early 30’s I hit the wall with fatigue… I had three children under the age of 3, my marriage broke up, and I went back to work thinking I could ‘do it all’. My body did not agree… nothing helped the crippling fatigue until I saw a naturopathic doctor who introduced me to my adrenal glands. When I started naturopathic practice in the 1980’s it was my own experience with adrenal fatigue that allowed me to recognize it in my patients and over the years I saw the need for an effective adrenal supplement.

Museum displays Red Cross history

AdrenaSense® is the original solution I formulated for patients and others who have found it very effective.

The Original AdrenaSense Formula:

The herbs in the AdrenaSense formula are called adaptogens that have been proven to support stress reactions and normalize adrenal function. These include Rhodiola, Suma, Schizandra Berries, Siberian Ginseng and Ashwagandha, which in combination, enhance mental and physical performance; balance the nervous system helping with anxiety and insomnia; support the immune, cardiovascular and hormonal systems; counteract fatigue, anxiety and depression; as well as provide vital energy.



t’s that time of year again. It’s the time when the leaves turn colours, our children and grandchildren are settled into the school routine, and the air is a little crispSteve er in the morning. One of the best parts Thomson of the fall is the annual reminder to show gratitude for our loved ones and be thankful for the blessings in our life. In my family, we have some special Thanksgiving traditions. We gather together in the old farmhouse, and the kids take the bikes out while the rest of us prepare our meal. When I was growing up, my father would artfully carve the turkey, and we would have delicious homemade sausages, a special treat. As much as we all looked forward to the food, that time together as a family created memories that I continue to cherish and build on with my children and grandchildren. Make sure you use this time of year as an opportunity to appreciate the company of those who are important to you, and to share in good food and conversation. Our hard-working friends at the Kelowna Gospel Mission go to great lengths to provide a delicious, hot meal to those in our community who otherwise might not have Thanksgiving dinner. Many people donated or volunteered their time to help put on the Gospel Mission’s biggest meal of the year on Monday. There’s no better way to show gratitude and thanks for the blessings in our lives than to give back to our community, and this is a great, meaningful way of doing so. ••• Make sure to check out the Grow Local Fall Fair, combining the Cherry and Apple Fairs into a great family event, promoting our local farmers. Grow Local opens on Saturday, Oct. 19, 10 a.m., until 3 p.m., at the Laurel Packinghouse in downtown Kelowna at the corner of Ellis and Cawston. In addition to the delicious local produce, there will be family activities and a children’s corner. You don’t want to miss it! When you buy local food products, you do more than just provide highly nutritious, quality food to your family and friends, you are supporting the local economy.

The Canadian Red Cross last week officially launched its display of more than a century of history. The display at the Kelowna Museum highlights how Red Cross has been actively helping people in communities like the Southern B.C. Interior since 1909. The display includes artifacts such as Red Cross nursing uniforms dating back to the Second World War, and a basket that was used to drop medical supplies by parachute to outpost hospitals. The display is part of this year’s Red Cross Building for Humanity campaign, which aims to

raise $3 million to support the B.C. Southern Interior’s first, full-service Support and Disaster Operations Centre in Kelowna. “Red Cross has been supporting our communities for decades, helping those who need it most,” said Anna Hunt-Binkley, the Building for Humanity Campaign chair. “The needs in this community are growing so now it’s time we helped Red Cross, to ensure we’re all ready when disaster strikes.” The display runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily through October at the Kelowna Museum, 470 Queensway Ave.

As well, six were caught with loaded firearms in their vehicles, two left their quads unattended with their rifles on them, and one was loaded, so the rifles were seized. Officers also seized an illegally-shot five-point

ELENA DOEBELE puts books away on her first day as librarian of Westbank’s branch of Okanagan Regional

Library. Doebele said she’s looking forward meeting the community and helping them connect with the books and resources they need.

New librarian ready for new challenge Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Before Elena Doebele could finish her first day as librarian of Westbank’s branch of Okanagan Regional Library Tuesday, several media outlets had already stopped by to snap photos of her at work. The new librarian— who previously worked for Calgary Public Library for over six years— admitted she isn’t used to all of the attention; however, she’s happy to be working in West Kelowna. “I’m really excited to get to know the staff and the community out here -in West Kelowna—find nout what the needs are -and go from there,” said Doebele. “I really like helping people either find a great nbook or connect with the -right resource, whether git’s electronic or in print.” ” While working in Cal,gary, Doebele worked on several projects, such as creating a community -garden next to the library wwhere she worked. d A big part of her job ethere also focused on earrly literacy and children’s services. m Doebele said she’s excited to be living closer to family: Her parents live 0in the Interior and she has quite a few other family

HORRORFEST comes to Habitat six days before Halloween, leaving plenty of time to take in parties without missing the show.

Take in the Horror, without risk of missing Halloween Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

“Ready to rock the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Or maybe Blair Witch Project is more your beat? “Whatever your Halloween haunting fetish, if you’ve ever heard the call to act in classic trickor-treat-style, then the Okanagan Society of Independent Filmmaking has just the opportunity for you…” So began our first story on the casting calls for Horrorfest, a now time-honoured Halloween tradition entering its fifth season of supporting creativity in the Okanagan. Originally conjured up by the Okanagan Society of Independent Film-

making president Kelly Veltri and friends, the annual contest to make the best locally-shot horror flick appears to have cast a spell on blood-lusting Halloween fans hungry to be scared silly—or at least forced to let out a scream. Back by popular demand, the contest is meant to promote local filmmakers, giving this relatively small group of artists a rare chance to screen locally. “I think what makes the event so exciting is that it’s a room full of artists all celebrating their work together,” said Veltri. There have been some great films made and some bad films made, but that’s what makes the horror genre interesting. “Sometimes the bad movies are peoples’ fa-

vourite.” The screening plays out more like an event. There’s drinks, food, a DJ, raffle and door prizes along with whatever movies have been submitted by deadline, which was earlier this week. Profits raised go to the film society and its efforts to support this burgeoning industry throughout the Okanagan Valley. “The film industry in the Okanagan isn’t big but it’s growing,” said Veltri. “We’ve been getting two to three shows a year and many more locals are getting jobs each year.” Most local filmmakers own production companies, doing corporate videos, music videos, documentaries and commercials to pay the bills. Veltri also works as a

cameraman for the Kelowna Rockets hockey team. “It’s not easy to do this locally for a living but we don’t do it because it’s easy; we do it because we’re passionate about our job,” he said. “We love the people we get to meet, the moments we get to experience and the satisfaction of sharing our work.” First prize for the best local horror flick is $500. To see what the group is sharing this year one must be at Habitat, 248 Leon Ave., on Friday, Oct. 25. Tickets are $10 at Leo’s Video on Pandosy or $12 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m. with the films starting at 9 p.m. The event is for those 19 years of age and older.

Skills gained from volunteering Dawn Wilkinson

Volunteering is a good way to go. You can volunteer while vacationing or even take a vacation specifically to volunteer. Your volunteer test run with new skills might last less than a day as you help out at an event. If you know what you want to do, why not approach the charity and make an offer? Ask about the possibility of shadowing or being mentored. Want to improve

your interpersonal skills through working with a diverse group? What about your written, verbal and non-verbal communication skills? Maybe you want to try organizing an activity or managing a project. You can gain knowledge about a subject that sparks your interest, like a health issue, coaching a sport, music appreciation or the environment. Fundraising and technical or office skills are

David Francey is a Scottish-born Canadian carpenter turned- songwriter, who has become known as “one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers”. Born in Scotland to parents who were factory workers, he moved to Canada when he was 12. For decades, he worked across Canada in rail yards, construction sites, and in the Yukon bush, all the while writing poetry, setting it to melodies in his head and singing it to himself as he worked. When he was in his 40s, his wife, artist Beth irdler, encouraged him to share his songs and sing in public. The reaction was instant. His first album Torn Screen Door came out in 1999 and was a hit in Canada. Since then, he has released nine albums and won three Juno Awards. With songs about hope and perseverance, the album sounds like a classic folk record that will appeal to folk fans of all ages.

Linaker embraces challenges Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

In and out of hospitals multiple times during his childhood, doctors advised Cole Linaker he’d be best to stick to individual sports like golf or tennis. But for the Edmonton native, the reality of a serious ear condition wasn’t nearly enough to deter him from chasing his dream of playing hockey. Linaker, who has just 35 per cent hearing in his right ear, has cleared each and every hurdle along the way in earning a permanent roster spot with the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets. “Seeing my dad and brother play hockey when I was young, that just motivated me even more,” said Linaker, 18. “I didn’t really think about what I was going through when I was young, I just wanted to be playing hockey. “Looking back it was a pretty big deal, but back then it didn’t seem like much. I stuck with it and things have turned out

pretty well.” Before he was three, Linaker was diagnosed with a tumour in his right ear, a growth that would have eventually caused brain damage and facial paralysis. Over the next eight years, Linaker underwent no fewer than a dozen surgeries on his ear, including four major procedures known as mastoidectomies to keep the tumour at bay. Because pretty much every hockey season growing up was interrupted by health issues, Linaker has had to work just that much harder to keep pace with other players his age. Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said that much is clear in watching Linaker come to the rink on a daily basis. “Cole works hard all the time,” said Huska. “He was in a situation early on last year where he didn’t play much but he always came to work always, and I think that has carried over this year. I can say

nothing comes easy for him, he does have to make sure he’s working harder and competing harder than other people if he wants to stay in the lineup. He never feels sorry for himself and he’s always willing to do that.” With 65 per cent hearing loss and no canal in his right ear, Linaker does encounter a few challenges on the ice but, so far, he says, none have been insurmountable. As it turns out, Linaker’s determination, resolve and work ethic were put to the test again during his first year of midget hockey in Edmonton. The spring after being taken by the Rockets in the WHL bantam draft, Linaker suffered a serious knee injury after taking a hit from a current Rockets’ teammate, Mitch Wheaton. He didn’t play hockey again for 14 months. “It was frustrating to say the least, but there’s not much you can do,” said Linaker, who had two goals and an assist in the

first eight games this season. “I knew I had to work harder than most guys to get back where I was. It’s a big developmental year after you get drafted, so the timing wasn’t very good. It was a struggle, but I was determined and I just loved the challenge.” So while it’s true that Linaker’s journey to the Western Hockey League has been a bumpy one— to say the least—the 6-foot-1 Edmonton product is the last one you’ll hear complaining. “I’m happy with the way things have went, and I’m grateful that I’m as lucky as I have been,” Linaker said. “So many things could have went wrong, I’m fortunate to be where I am today, in Kelowna and being healthy. Even if I was playing lower level, I still would enjoy the game and play it, regardless.” Linaker and the Rockets return to action Saturday night when the Prince George Cougars pay a visit to Prospera Place.


FORWARD Cole Linaker overcame a serious ear condition during his childhood on the way to being drafted by the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets.

KC Knights win silver at UBCO tourney


AMANDA JONKER (far left) and Taylor James set

up for a block against the Pen Hi Lakers during the UBC Okanagan senior girls volleyball tournament last weekend in Kelowna.

Even with one of the smaller student populations at the 40-team event, the Kelowna Christian Knights more than held their own at the UBC Okanagan Heat senior girls volleyball tournament. The Knights, ranked No. 1 at the A level in B.C., made it as far as the final before succumbing to the South Kamloops (AAAA) Titans in three sets (21-25, 25-23, 1513). Kamloops was led to victory by Junior Heat Volleyball Club standout, Mieke DuMont, who named the MVP. KCS had beaten South Kamloops earlier in two sets earlier in the tournament on the way to winning their pool. The Knights then defeated Selkirk, Vernon and Cedars Christian in the playoffs on the way to the silver medal effort final. KCS coach Rob

Smith was pleased with his team’s effort throughout the weekend. “I thought the girls played really well,” said Smith. “It was fun to see them in front of their home crowd, doing well and enjoying it. Sometimes they don’t perform well with everyone watching and all the nerves, but they handled it well.” The Knights placed two players on the all-star team—Micaylee Pubcilowki and Cheyenne Heidebrecht. The Kelowna Owls took the bronze medal defeating Cedars Christian in the third-place final 2-0 (25-10, 25-22). KSS won its pool, then advanced to the semifinals before losing to South Kam. Kristen Watson and Tessa Neil were named to the all-star team. Immaculata tied for 11th place overall. Mt. Boucherie was fourth in the Blue Division (2nd),


KSS Owls Jolene Lutz (left) and Quinci Birker team up to block an attack by Vernon Secondary player in pool play action on Friday. while OKM tied for seventh, Rutland was 11th and George Elliot was

West boys and girls tournaments at various venues around the city.

Josephs nets three as Chiefs edge Posse It was the Night of the Nicks as the Kelowna Chiefs edged the Princeton Posse 5-4 in KIJHL action Tuesday at Rutland Arena. Nick Josephs struck for a hat trick for the hometown Chiefs, while Nicholas Gnazdowsky each added singles Nick

Headrick, and Nicholas Kovacik had two assists. The Chiefs (7-3-01) have a busy weekend coming up with three games in three nights. On Friday, Kelowna will play host to the Sicamous Eagles, followed by a home date Saturday against the

A pair of Thanksgiving weekend wins on home ice have vaulted the Kelowna Rockets tier 2 boys midget rep hockey team into first place in the standings in Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association league play. On Saturday at Memorial Arena, Nick Robbins lead the Rockets to a 7-2 victory over the Greater Trail Smoke Eaters with a hat-trick effort, including a short-handed marker. Spencer Copan with a pair, and singles from Ryan Pereverzoff and Grant Dollevoet rounded out the scoring for Kelowna. Then on Sunday, Jordan Reynolds between the pipes back-stopped the Rockets to a 6-0 drubbing of the visiting Kamloops Blazers. Copan and Pereverzoff each potted two goals while Parker Armstrong and Brett Witala added singles. The tier 2 midget Rockets have started the season with 4-0 record, out-scoring its opponents by a 25-6 margin.

Heat women in playoffs Kids running series

With a PACWEST playoff berth already secured, the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s soccer squad will close out the 2013 regular season on their home turf this weekend against two tough opponents. Claire Paterson’s crew will take on the Langara Falcons Saturday at Nonis Field, followed by Quest Kermodes on Sunday. The Heat are currently tied with Langara for third spot with 21 points each, six points in arrears of second place Quest. UBCO (6-3-3) clinched a post season spot on Sunday with a 3-0 home turf shutout over the Douglas College Royals. Devon Fleming-Frame, with her first career goal, Lindsey Briggs and Michelle Smith, with her fifth of the season, all scored for the Heat in the second half. - “We got the result s(Sunday) that I would expect,” said Heat head coach Claire Paterson following the game. “I was happy with how the team came to play. Three great goals… and it was great to see Devon get on the scoreboard with her first career goal. That was awesome.” In Saturday, the Heat earned a 2-2 draw with the yKwantlen Eagles as Hayley Carslon connected for -the tying marker in the 77th minute. Mairi Horth, with her first of the season, also scored for UBCO. n

If the teams end up tied at season’s end, VIU would win the tiebreaker based on head-to-head play. Last weekend, the Heat didn’t help its cause by earning just one point in two games. On Saturday, Kwantlen blanked the Heat 1-0 on a goal in the 81st minute. On Sunday, UBCO let a 2-0 lead slip and had to settle for a 2-2 draw with the Douglas Royals. After Saturday’s narrow loss, Heat coach Dante Zanatta was preaching ‘better ball movement’ and to ‘create more opportunities’. His team responded in kind with fluidic offensive pressure that kept the Royals on their heels for the first half of the match. “We tasked the players to be individually be three to five per cent better,” Zanatta said. “If you put all those together you get a better performance,

and I think everybody today did that. As a coach, you can never criticize the group for that. They played better.” Rookie midfielder Enzo Paal scored both Heat goals, his fifth and sixth of the season.

In 2012, longtime Kelowna Running Club member Bill Stephens decided it was time that kids had an opportunity to participate in local road races. “I was upset, that there weren’t any youngsters running in our race series,” said Stephens, also an avid runner. “The majority of our runners were in their 40s and up, and I wanted to get younger runners involved.” That’s when he initiated the Strong Kids running series, which turned out to be a huge success in its inaugural season. “We started off in 2012 with three races in Kelowna and they were successful,” Bill continued. “We had two races this year and each one had a greater attendance.” The next kid’s race will be on Nov. 3 in Mission Creek Park in conjunction with the 30th Larry Nicholas memorial 9 k cross country race. The kids run in age categories 6 and under, 7 and 8, 9 and 10, 11 and 12 a




distance from 1-3 km. Start time is 11 a.m. Bill asks people to register their kids online through events. There is also a day of race registration but it gets really hectic on race day. The minimum cost is $ 5 by donation, with 100 per cent of the proceeds go to the YMCA strong kids. For more visit www.

The UBC Okanagan Heat men’s volleyball concluded their preseason with their best showing of the year to date, as they finished the Thompson Rivers tournament with two wins, two losses, and a second-place finish after the Friday-Saturday event. To open the tournament, the Heat drew the UBC Thunderbirds, and although the Heat fell in four sets (20-25, 25-22, 25-23, 25-23), Three young players led the offense for UBC Okanagan: sophomore Alex Swiatlowski with 20 points, and rookies Lars Bornemann and Kris McCrea finished with 15 and

11 respectively. The second match on Friday saw the Heat capture their first road win of the season with the Guelph Gryphons playing the victim. It took just three sets (25-20, 25-15, 27-25) and one hour and 12 minutes to dispatch of the Ontario foes. The fifth-year veteran Nate Speijer recorded a game-high 18 kills and 24 total points, while Kyle Pankratz added an additional 10 kills in a very strong game for the thirdyear transfer. On Saturday UBC Okanagan faced off against the host, the Thompson Rivers WolfPack, for the fourth time

this preseason, and for the first time in the four attempts the Heat got the best of the ‘Pack with a three set win (27-25, 2517, 25-18) that pushed the Heat into the gold medal game against the Thunderbirds. Speijer led the way with 16 points, while Bornemann (10) and Harvey (8) also had solid games for the Heat. In the final versus inter-university rival UBC, the Heat came out sluggish, as the long weekend of volleyball showed. Offensively, the Heat struggled. Speijer was only able to must six kills versus the T-Birds, while Jim Bell added four

in limited action. A three-set win for the Thunderbirds (25-14, 259, 25-12) earned UBC the gold medal, while UBC Okanagan earned the silver medal in a good overall weekend showing from the Heat. “Overall we definitely made good strides forward since our last exhibition, said a pleased Poitras after the tournament. “We played two players (second year middle Jim Bell and first year outside hitter Lars Bornemann) who hadn’t played a full match or scrimmage this year because of injury.” Poitras, along with the two wins, was also able to see measurable improve-

ment in his team’s execution and on offense, but notes improvements are still needed. “We are scoring much better and we are managing our errors better. We have a lot of work to do to be able to compete over two nights.” The Heat will open the regular season at home on Oct. 25 versus the valley rival WolfPack. And then see the WolfPack for the sixth and final time (barring a playoff matchup) of the season on Sunday in Kamloops. First serve is 7 p.m. Friday in Kelowna and 6 p.m. Saturday at the Tournament Capital Centre.

Women drop two at TRU A visit to Kamloops for a pre-season round-robin tourney didn’t result in any victories, but did provide the UBC Okanagan Heat a chance to work out some kinks prior to the start of the Canada West women’s basketball campaign. On Friday, the Heat fell to the host Thompson Rivers Wolfpack 79-55. Shooting under 30 percent for the game and uncharacteristically missing shots from the charity stripe (15-for30, 50 per cent) was no help to the young Heat team that received scor-

ing from all but two players on the roster. Thirdyear guard Sarah Allison led the team with nine points equalled by rookie point guard Claire Elliott, who also hauled in six rebounds. Another guard, Jessica Jazdarehee led the team with seven rebounds and added eight points in just 16 minutes of play. The Heat had trouble slowing down Thompson River’s 6-foot-2 post, Kassie Colonna, who finished with a gamehigh 23 points and six rebounds. On Saturday, the Heat gave the UNBC Timber-

wolves all they could handle before falling 63-61. Allison led the Heat in scoring with 15 points while contributing three assists and five steals. Poor interior defense would plague the Heat, particularly in the fourth quarter as the Wolves chalked up 36 points in the paint, 12 of which were second-chances. Heat coach Heather Semeniuk was not shy in leaning on her bench players, who came out ready and outscored the Timberwolves’ bench 2411. The Heat did not shoot very well from the perimeter, however, as they shot an uncharacteristic 59 per cent from the line. The Heat are back

How to avoid common home renovation pitfalls C ontinuing along the topic of taking advantage of the B.C. renovation tax credit from my previous column, here are some tips and things to watch out for when hiring a renovation contractor from any segment of the construction industry. First, have a detailed list of the items that you want included in your renovation. For example, if you are having your kitchen or bathroom countertops replaced, do you want your sinks reinstalled up and your appliances reinstalled up or are you doing that yourself? Or having someone else come in to do that? Get more than one quote. Make sure that you are present when the contractor(s) come to your home to look at the job. That way you can have a conversation to make sure that all items on your list are covered and understood by the contractor(s). During the meeting with the contractor(s) you should determine if they are licensed, have a busi-


Gabriele Banka ness number and can provide a couple of references to you. If the work can be seen from the outside, such as a roof, or landscaping, some contractors will tell you to take a drive by ‘such and such’ address. You can do that, but also go up to the door to confirm that it was actually that contractor that did the work. Some contractors have been known to send potential customers to view work that was actually completed by a different contractor. You want to ask if the work will comply with a building code and determine if the code is known and understood. Who will be responsible for the building permit, if necessary? Another question to

ask is who will actually be doing the work? Would it be the contractor, him or herself, or a staff member? If a staff member, how much experience do they have in the field? Beware of ‘under the table’ deals to avoid taxes. If the contractor is ripping off the government, there is a good chance you might be next. Ask for a written quote. When you receive the quote make sure that all items that were discussed are listed in detail on the quote as well as how long it will be to complete the job. Many contractors provide a standard quote sheet that has several check boxes on it and don’t write down the details discussed. Then after the job is started they claim to not have quoted on that particular item and if you want it done, then it will cost more. Sometimes the cheapest quote is not always the best. Choose your contractor based on your initial feelings when you

The canyon trail to the falls viewpoint was closed Sept. 12 due to bear activity. “People visiting Hardy Falls Regional Park should continue to be vigilant and be prepared for possible encounters with bears and other wildlife,” said Bruce Smith, regional district spokesman. Meanwhile, a portion of Scenic Canyon Regional Park and the Mission Creek Greenway (from Layer Cake Mountain Lookout to the Field and McCulloch Road parking areas) remains closed due to continued cougar activity in the vicinity.

If the contractor does not start on the expected start date, and does not contact you to reschedule, perhaps that might be the first warning sign that things are not going to go well with this job. Another warning sign is when the contractor arrives to start your job and then leaves to quote another job, or leaves the work with someone that looks like a child while he/she goes to quote another job.

To seal the deal, some contractors will require a partial payment up front indicating good faith towards job completion. You should always sign the quote indicating that you agree with the items as quoted. Make sure you are given a copy of your signed document. When you accept the quote, be sure to ask for an expected ‘start date’ so that you can prepare the site, if necessary. Sometimes construction can be invasive, so it is better to be prepared for when it happens. Perhaps the work is to be completed indoors and will require someone at home to open the door

ST. GEORGE, BRYAN DOUGLAS Bryan Douglas went to be with the Lord on October 10, 2013 at the age of 80. Survived by his loving family, daughter Kimberlee Alton of Kelowna; sons Kevin Douglas (Lynn) of W. Vancouver; and Gordon Bryan (Colleen) of Peachland; nine grandchildren; Eben (Laura), Jamie (Larry), Mike (Marney), Darren (Jen), Matthew (Jenn),Jennifer (James), Ross, Andrew, Scott and nine great grandchildren. Sadly predeceased by his wife Dean, brothers Clarence and Dennis and sisters Doris and Kae. Bryan was born on a small farm near Dugald, MB, east of Winnipeg. While he loved farming life, he was anxious to explore other parts of Canada. He began a long and successful career in the moving industry in 1952 when he joined Security Storage in Winnipeg as a long distance driver. Bryan, or “Boots” as he was known by many for years, joined the Allied Van Lines dispatch office in Winnipeg when it was time to settle down and begin having a family. In 1965 Bryan and Dean and their three small children moved to Kelowna when Bryan became the General Manager of Chapman Moving & Storage. In 1970, Bryan and Dean ventured out on their own and purchased Speedy Delivery Service and began operating as St. George Moving & Storage. Bryan was an active member of the trucking industry and served on various Boards throughout his career. He was also active in First Baptist Church, the community and enjoyed politics. He never turned down a good debate and was always writing a letter to one of our local newspaper editors. When then the children were young, Bryan could often been seen at one of the local ball diamonds or ice rink. Bryan was an avid hunter in his younger years and enjoyed getting away - unfortunately there often wasn’t game to show but he had fun just the same. Bryan and Dean sold St. George Moving in 1992 and then spent the next 18 years enjoying retirement and spending winters in Mexico with close friends and family. Bryan loved to drive to Mexico each winter. Bryan was very close to his family and will be missed dearly by many including nieces and nephews. He was very close to his grandchildren and was always very supportive of their adventures. Memorial Service will be held on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, with Pastor Gary Swabey officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society: 202-1835 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 3H5. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting A27 A27

United Way fundraiser total climbs past $41,000 STRAIGHT FROM DEHART

Maxine DeHart This week’s column is dedicated to my long-time friend Bob Brummitt. Bob and I go way back to his Bank of Montreal years. One of my favourite memories also goes way back! I got a call from Bob and was asked if I would consider coming on board to help with the yearly United Way Golf Tournament with him, Kelowna’s mayor at the time Jim Stuart, Mike Culos and Gordie Weber. I was delighted to work with that elite group (ha!). We had a lot of fun, raised a lot of money and the rest is history. Our breakfast meetings were held at Knobby’s Restaurant in the Willow Inn (they had the best bacon). Willow Inn owner Ken Noble often joined us. My personal condolences go out to Bob’s family and many friends. hanks a million Kelowna! You did it again— in just over three hours, we raised a whopping $41,000 (way up from last year) for the 16th annual Maxine DeHart/ Ramada United Way Drive-Thru Breakfast. The drive-thru was just before the Thanksgiving weekend and let me tell you, I am extremely thankful to all of you who came and “opened your hearts and your wallets.” It was pretty over-


whelming as the cheque donations were still coming in over last weekend. A special thanks to everyone who waited in the line-ups. I am very sorry about the people who could not get a bag and also to some of you who had to be turned away. Thank you for your patience, kindness and understanding. We already have some new ideas for next year!   Personal thanks to all the sponsors, Kelowna RCMP and the auxiliary constables, City of Kelowna staff, all the volunteers, media and everyone else who helped in the bagging on Wednesday evening to make this event a huge success. The tremendous amount of support, from you, the community, is nothing less than humbling. Thanks to all the Ramada staff, including Sergio Cunial, Cindy Atkinson, Doug Mills and the maintenance staff, Ryan Coome and the front desk and bell staff, and our GM Stan Martindale. All sponsors and contributing businesses will be formally thanked and listed in a special “Thank You” in an upcoming Capital News. All the donations you so generously gave stay right here in our community to help the 29 agencies of the United Way.   Grand prize winners that have come forward so far are Joshua Barnes (Two WestJet Flights) Diane Wambolt, Wyndham Worldwide (Have a Heart Necklace, $2,700 from Michelle Urbanovitch); Angela Smedley, ToothZone Kids Dental Centre (Mario’s

The auxiliary have averaged 12,000 volunteer hours per year for the past 10 years. Kelowna has always been a very strong leader in the province and Canada promoting auxiliary members and with them helping the RCMP in various duties it also means that the regular members can be put back on the street where they are needed. The entire auxiliary were very instrumental in assisting in both the 2003 Kelowna Fire and the 2009 Westside Fire with evacuations. The training classes for recruits are three months and there are presently 16 recruits in the program at this time and 55 regular members.

Kalala Organic Estate Winery is aiming to grow its distribution to India, and a recent trip to one of that country’s largest food and beverage trade shows has likely helped the cause. Karnail Singh Sidhu, proprietor, managing director and viticulturist at Kalala Organic Estate Winery, returned from his trip to Mumbai earlier this month, where he attended the Annapoorna - World of Food India trade show, which ran from Sept. 23 to 25. Kalala began shipping its products to Bangalore in January, but Sidhu is hopeful to have wines and ice wines sent to Mumbai and Delhi as well. “It’s a growing market,” said Sidhu. “Thirty-nine per cent of the wine market of India (is) in Mumbai.” Sidhu added India has one of the youngest populations in the world, and

wine has become the drink of choice over beer and hard liquor in recent years. Kalala wines haven’t exactly been flying off the shelf in Bangalore, but Sidhu believes the product will continually increase sales as brand recognition increases. “It’s a slow (process), but it’s selling; it’s a new brand and a new market.” The West Kelowna winery was one of 12 B.C. food and beverage producers to make the trip, which was organized by B.C.’s Ministry of International Trade. “The B.C. government continues to work hard to build new markets in Asia, and India represents a huge opportunity for B.C. food producers to increase their sales,” said Minister of Agriculture Pat Pimm in a statement. “Families around the world choose B.C. products for their reputation as high-quality food (and beverages) that can be served with confidence.” The trade show brought

Water systems to be brought into compliance Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The District of West Kelowna is looking for public input to help determine the best way to deliver clean, reliable water for its citizens. The draft Master Water Plan is very broad in scope and addresses: The district’s existing and future water supply, watershed stability and drought tolerance, water’s ability to meet new provincial water

quality standards, incremental future standards, system hydraulic and distribution requirements, ongoing operations and renewal requirements, as well as water conservation impacts. West Kelowna currently has five independent water service areas, including: Lakeview, Pritchard, Sunnnyside, Westbank and West Kelowna Estates. Of the five, only the Westbank water service area meets provincial water quality

guidelines. “Interior Health has a set of drinking water standards called 4-3-2-1-0 that basically address turbidity and contaminants and so on,” said West Kelowna Mayor Findlater. “Only one system measures up to that.” Of the seven options identified in the Water Master Plan, five were deemed viable and proceeded to financial assessment. Several of the options involve the creation of a

Rose Valley Water Treatment Plant and interconnection between the five water systems. Some of those options include agriculture twinning. The options range from approximately $150 million to $175 million in capital improvements spread over the next 20 years; the district hopes to offset some of the costs through qualifying provincial grants and new development. “It’s a costly issue for West Kelowna to address.

“For council, in a lot of cases, it’s going to come down to the dollars.” Findlater said water rates will go up for users, regardless of the option that’s chosen. Some users may experience bigger increases than others. “My first question at a council meeting (when) this is presented to me is ‘What’s this going to look like in dollars in a quarterSee Water A12

Action group continues to tackle issues faced by homeless Westside youth Wade Paterson

Several West Kelowna residents aren’t letting the issue of youth homelessness get moved to the back burner. Rev. Louise Cummings of Westbank United Church was part of the group that organized the West Kelowna Youth Homelessness Forum at Westbank Lions Community Centre last May. Since then, good things have been happening, according to Cummings. Prior to the forum, three meals per month were being provided to the Westside Youth Centre by churches in the area. More churches jumped on board after the forum and now eight meals per month are being provided.

In early September The Okanagan Boys’ and Girls’ Club Westside Youth Centre was closed after a suspected arsonist set fire to Westbank Lions Community Centre. According to Cummings, the youth centre has been temporarily relocated to a rented space within Westbank United Church. She said the space is currently being utilized every day by about eight to 20 kids. “Part of the challenge for them here is that they don’t have the pool tables—things to do are pretty limited here,” said Cummings. “But the main thing is that they have a safe place to be with each other where they can access the staff and get in touch with the services they need.

“What we hear is that the kids who need it most are the ones who are coming.” Although positive steps are being made to help youth in the community, Cummings said there is still a housing need for West Kelowna youth who may benefit from provincial youth agreements. According to George Curran, program director with ARC Programs Ltd., youth agreements are legal agreements between young people and the Ministry of Children and Family Development that provide funding to help youth find a place to live. “The kids have to demonstrate significant issues in their lives to be able to come on,” said Curran. Those who are 16 to 18 and don’t have a parent

or relative willing to take responsibility for them, or can’t return home for safety reasons, are potential candidates for youth agreements. The agreements allow the youth to live in a shared accommodation with a family that has signed up for the program. Typically, the youth are given a bedroom with access to a bathroom and a kitchen. “Typically it’s not a suite or anything like that… lots of times it might be families who’ve (had) somebody go off to university, or it’s a friend’s parents’ house.” Landlords who sign up for the program are given about $375 per month for offering their space. Curran said around 20 to 25 Central Okanagan youth may be utilizing

youth agreements at any given time; approximately 20 per cent of those youth live in West Kelowna. “We’ve always had a more difficult time housing kids on the Westside—it’s harder for us to recruit landlords.” Curran added it’s difficult to place West Kelowna youth—who may work and go to school in West Kelowna—in Rutland or other areas of Kelowna because they have limited transportation options. Those who are interested in learning more about the youth agreements program, or who want to look into sharing their accommodation with youth in need, can phone ARC Programs youth services staff at 250-763-3039.

New librarian excited to meet her community Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Before Elena Doebele could finish her first day as librarian of Westbank’s branch of Okanagan Regional Library Tuesday, several media outlets had already stopped by to snap photos of her at work. The new librarian— who previously worked for Calgary Public Library for over six years— admitted she isn’t used to all of the attention; however, she’s happy to be working in West Kelowna. “I’m really excited to

get to know the staff and the community out here in West Kelowna—find out what the needs are and go from there,” said Doebele. “I really like helping people either find a great book or connect with the right resource, whether it’s electronic or in print.” While working in Calgary, Doebele worked on several projects, such as creating a community garden next to the library where she worked. A big part of her job there also focused on early literacy and children’s services. Doebele said she’s excited to be living closer to

family: Her parents live in the Interior and she has quite a few other family members in B.C. as well. She’s also looking forward to doing more skiing and hiking. As for her favourite book, the new librarian didn’t have a quick answer. “It’s really hard to ask a librarian her favourite book. “I read a lot of kid’s books in my last job; I think Charlotte’s Web is up there.” wpaterson Twitter: @PatersonWade

If the first week has been any indication, business is going to be good for City Furniture Ltd.’s 22nd location in West Kelowna. The new furniture store opened last Friday in the former Extra Foods building, near the intersection of Highway 97 and Gosset Road. “We are overwhelmed…the response has been really good,” said Ray Kandola, owner of City Furniture in West Kelowna. The 40,000-square-

foot display area is the largest one-floor operation in City Furniture’s chain. Previously, City Furniture had a location on Ross Road for about 13 years; however, Kandola said that store wasn’t as easily accessible. “We were looking for a bigger, better location.” Kandola’s nephew, Das Kandola, will be in charge of managing the new store. “We’re going to make sure we do our very best to support the community.”

Music in the Park sees attendance double at 2013 outdoor concerts One councillor is not so sure it’s a wise use of district funds Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

More than 6,000 people sat on Memorial Park’s sloped hill at some point this past summer to watch West Kelowna’s nine-week summer concert series, Music in the Park. Music in the Park more than doubled its attendance from last year’s inaugural season, which brought out approximately 3,000 spectators. “There’s a good following and it certainly is growing all the time,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. The program was created to provide art and cultural events that showcase local talent. Each show featured a talented kid, an opening act and a headline performance. In addition to the con-

certs, outdoor play equipment and games were provided to entertain children at the event and a food vendor was brought on site. Ryan Donn, creative director of Creative Okanagan, was hired to produce both Music in the Park and Global Music Fest: A new multi-cultural event featured Aug. 24, which included a variety of music, games and food from various cultures. The majority of council members said the program was well worth the $27,539 cost to the district; however, Coun. Carol Zanon had a different opinion. “I know everybody thinks this is the greatest thing since sliced bread… I’m just not too sure this is the right way we should be spending our money,”

said Zanon. “I want to look at the underbelly of this thing and make sure it’s financially sound.” Findlater noted the district may need to improve accessibility, parking and seating in the future. Other potential improvements, suggested by Music in the Park organizers, include better lighting and a basic overhead structure on the existing stage to allow performances to proceed regardless of the weather. Council will decide whether to continue the Music in the Park program during its 2014 budget deliberations. wpaterson Twitter: @PatersonWade
