Why value wetlands? Wetlands are more than a haven for mosquitoes or a place to dump worn-out tires. They have value in the biodiversity they offer, but they also provide economic returns such as in filtering runoff, alleviating flooding, recharging underground aquifers, controlling erosion and managing stormwater. They’re home to such species at risk as painted turtles, great basin spadefoot toad, tiger salamander and yellow-breasted chat. You’re being asked in the coming weeks to list wetlands you know and describe how you value them as part of the Okanagan Wetlands Strategy. Capital News reporter Judie Steeves researched the background on this project and how you can participate. See story on page A3

AQUATIC BIOLOGIST Kyle Hawes, of Ecoscape Environmental Consultants of Kelowna, says the wetland behind him is a healthy one, with an uneven edge, some open water, varied aquatic and wetland plants, a variety of bird species using it and native upland vegetation.

CLOSE-UP

Remaining wetlands need protection

Judie Steeves

STAFF REPORTER

I

n a sense, we’re all guilty of destroying wetlands, habitat for a myriad of often-endangered species in the Okanagan. After all, Kelowna’s downtown area used to be all wetlands, as did much of the property for miles around Mission Creek, where the land is now farmed and the creek has been channelled away in a ditch to prevent it from inundating acres of land during its peak runoff each spring. “In the historical context, this city was built on the destruction of local wetlands,” points out Nelson Jatel, water stewardship director for the Okanagan Basin Water Board, who has lived in the valley for most of his life. “We collectively share in the guilt.” He’s project manager for the first phase of the Okanagan Wetlands Strategy, a collaboration of the OBWB, B.C. Wildlife Federation and Central Okanagan Regional District, each of which will contribute in-kind work toward the project. Jatel notes that we all are beneficiaries of channelizing and damming projects of the

1940s and 1950s in the Okanagan Valley; projects that have changed the face of the valley in the past 200 years or so. “Hopefully this project will capture some of the history and alert people to the importance of what’s remaining,” he added. He’s excited about the project which he sees as ‘putting our house in order,’ and putting wetlands on people’s radar. It’s a role he sees as very fitting for the OBWB, bringing resources and people together to create a warehouse of comprehensive information about wetlands. Because the Okanagan has such a dry climate, wetlands are home to many species at risk, from Tiger Salamanders to Painted Turtles and a variety of ducks and geese. The idea will be to pull information from all sources, including individuals, to locate as many wetlands as possible and to get a feeling for how people view wetlands; whether they value them, and if so, in what ways. The data will all be integrated in a map with many layers for the whole Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys, so it will be a map that reflects the

different lenses of the different people who value wetlands— or not. Involved in a technical advisory capacity are the City of Kelowna, Ducks Unlimited, the South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program, the Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program, North Okanagan Regional District, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, Environment Canada, the Okanagan Nation Al-

liance, Okanagan College, and the Ministry of Agriculture. Armed with an Environment Canada Sustainable Ecosystems Program grant of $35,000, the $64,800 project is now in the collecting-information stage, a task that’s been contracted to Ecoscape Environmental Consultants, led by senior aquatic biologist Kyle Hawes, one of its principals. He points out that 85 per cent of wildlife use wetlands

directly or indirectly, so they’re critical habitat, particularly in the Okanagan, which is home to many rare and endangered species. As well, they have spiritual values to First Nations people and esthetic values to many other people, as serene places to enjoy nature, for education and for recreation. In addition to providing biodiversity and habitat for species at risk, wetlands are important tools in flood con-

trol. “They act like a sponge to hold back water; to allow it to spill over into riparian areas and release it slowly,” he explained. They also help recharge groundwater resources. Wetlands remove excess nutrients and purify water. In fact, engineers today construct wetlands specifically to filter runoff and storm water. They’re also important in erosion control. More than 85 per cent of the Okanagan’s wetland and natural riparian habitat has been lost, most filled in for development of one sort or another—and the loss continues, although it’s slowed, says Hawes. Wetlands are at risk from vineyard and other agricultural development and activities, cattle grazing, improper drainage management, road construction and hazard tree removal in addition to development. Contamination and invasive species threaten their health. Climate change will likely alter wetland habitats, and with development of other sorts, fragmentation can reduce their effectiveness.

line maps of wetlands, but this project will compile information from around the valley. The regional district had planned to hold public workshops on wetlands, but found the BCWF was planning to do the same thing, so the collaboration was born. “We want to know where the priority wetlands are and where they’re under pressure from development,” she explained. “The more information we have, the better. It provides valuable guidance for decision-making,” she added. Once wetlands have been identified there can be a focus on stewardship, she noted. There are lots of non-government agencies out there interested in restoration or protection of wetlands, she added. Protection is a priority over restoration, she noted. There are other tools such as covenants through land trusts to protect sensitive natural features, she said. The BCWF has had a wetlands program since 1996 and is the only group to hold onto the Wetlandkeepers program, which was adopted by the organization, explains Neil Fletcher, wetlands education program coordinator. It has projects going on around the province to help communities restore wetland habitat, en-

Regional District, says detailed mapping of sensitive areas has been done, but this project will take that the next step. hance and conserve wetlands, and had planned to get involved in some work in the Okanagan when Fletcher discovered other projects were getting underway. “We didn’t want to re-invent the wheel, so we collaborated,” he explained. The aim is to engage more fish and game clubs to get involved in projects conserving wetlands. “There’s a huge base of volunteers there,” he commented. The BCWF Wetlands Education Program has the support of Wildlife Habitat Canada, the Real Estate Foundation of B.C. and Shell Canada. Once Ecoscape completes the outreach portion of the project and collates the results of the data gathering process, there’ll be a clearer idea of what now exists in the valley,

he noted, and from there, priorities can be set so volunteers interested in a field project know where they should begin.

PROJECT UNDERWAY

Ecoscape staff have been collecting data from a variety of sources so they can consolidate the information that’s already been gathered by other agencies, and is organizing meetings with the public, First Nations, fish and game clubs and naturalists’ organizations. They’ll be asking people to list wetlands they’re aware of and describe the sort of wetland it is: whether there’s open water; whether it’s swamp, marsh, fen or bog and what types of vegetation there is. Wildlife observations are also important, from animals to birds and insects.

The potential risks to each wetland are also important, noted Hawes. That information will be gathered together in a single document with assessments of what everyone has had to say, including their comments on the importance of wetlands to them and what qualities matter the most. From that, a list of priority wetlands will emerge. Taking action to protect, enhance or restore wetlands would be part of a next phase of the project.

Local taxpayer will pony up for Surrey RCMP HQ building Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna taxpayers will likely be paying thousands of additional dollars for costs associated with the nearly $1-billion, 819,807-square-foot “Green Timbers” RCMP E Division headquarters that opened earlier this year in Surrey. Brad Lanthier, manager of contract policing with E Division’s Finance -Corporate Management Branch, gave West Ke-

lowna council a customized 2012-13 review of the project on Tuesday and spoke about potential upcoming costs facing the district and other municipalities across the province. Admitting the contingent cost of $1,200 per member was “by far the least popular part” of his presentation, Lanthier explained the price tag is an accommodation charge for administrative members occupying space at Green Timbers.

According to a news release issued by the Union of B.C. Municipalities earlier this year, the province is in the process of negotiating the cost of the building with the federal government. In the 2013-14 RCMP Financial Plan projections, there is an estimated budget allowance of $1,200 per regular member that has been built in; however, that number could change depending on negotiations.

A CAR was discovered at the bottom of an embankment Thursday in West Kelowna off East Boundary Road, near

Daimler Road. RCMP on scene said the accident had likely occurred sometime in the recent past, but was not reported nor noticed by a passerby until later. The vehicle was determined to be abandoned and there was no evidence of injured parties left at the scene. bers in West Kelowna’s RCMP detachment, that estimate would mean the district would be charged $27,600.

“I really have to stress that the $1,200 is a contingent amount. I’m not privy to the discussions, so I don’t want to say whether it will be less, but I would say that $1,200 is on the high side of an estimate,” said Lanthier. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater thanked Lanthier for the presentation and said, overall, the community is satisfied with the efforts of local Mounties. “This community is very happy with the RCMP service we get,” said Findlater.

The UBCM release also noted, except for the location, how the province was not consulted in the decision to build Green Timbers. “Our taxpayers need to understand $1,200 per member for an office building in Surrey is what our expected annual costs (could) be. Maybe it will be less, maybe it will be more,” said West Kelowna Coun. Duane Ophus. Lanthier noted there is a good chance the actual cost will be lower.

Declaring giant packages of crystal powder to be table salt appears to be what first tipped off border inspectors that something was amiss with a massive shipment of illegal drugs bound for West Kelowna. Three packages, totalling 16 kilograms, of the illicit drug methylone were shipped from China to an unnamed business in West Kelowna, arriving at the downtown Vancouver Canadian Border Services Agency inspection hub in August. Two women from West Kelowna were arrested more than a month later, RCMP said in a press conference Thursday morning. They have yet to be charged with a criminal

offence and the investigation is ongoing. “Prior to the arrest of these two women on Sept. 19, this drug has primarily been seen in the U.K. and the United States with small amounts recovered in the Maritimes and Ontario,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen, RCMP spokesperson for E Division. “This isolated but large seizure here in B.C. has made it clear that the RCMP, and our partner agencies, should take this opportunity to warn and educate the public.” According to RCMP the group of drugs referred to in street terms as bath salts are highly addictive amphetamines mixed with an everchanging cocktail of other drugs and toxins. “The drug is called bath salts because it takes the form of a white or

crystal powder that looks like salt. It is obviously very different from the epsom salts commonly used in bathing. “The drug contains a potentially lethal combination of amphetamine-type stimulants and other unknown ingredients…including drugs and toxins,” said Thiessen. Canadian Border Service Agents are trained to notice abnormalities in the mail, according to Heather Ardiel, CBSA chief of operations at the Vancouver International Mail Centre. Ardiel said three separate officers isolated each of the three packages the drugs were found in, initially using screening technology. The packages contained a pale brown substance, which raised sus-

“I think it’s safe to say these drugs could have been distributed in this community here and many other communities throughout the country,” said Thiessen when asked where the drugs were likely to be sold. Bath salts are more typically a compound known as methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV, that can be smoked, snorted or injected. The drug has led to some crazy news stories, such as: “Bath salts blamed for machete attack,” about a woman who attacked her mother while high on the drug. So popular is the substance south of the border that in some areas it has spawned review sites where users can rate and describe the effects of various forms of the drugs.

Valued friendships renewed by Facebook connections T Charlie Hodge it was the size of a large wall unit, complete with discs the size of 78 records. When I powered it up it would hum and shake like an airplane taking off. Today, I work from my home (as well as pay bills, order products, set up meetings, bank,) all from my laptop or telephone. However, for me the most recent pleasant evolution has been Facebook. Like many of you I have met a bundle of new and interesting folks online, through email, and on Facebook. Even better, I have managed to reconnect with some long lost friendships and school mates. Without Facebook, I doubt I would have reconnected with two of my dearest long-time buddies from youth—Jim Melville and Dan Thiessen. Danny and I started chumming around together in Grade 5 and remained close until around

age 17 or 18. During those years of companionship we pretty much went through everything two young lads can experience in life. In the big picture, we lived during ideal times. Life was pretty simple then, and growing up in the Okanagan Valley was about as wonderful as it gets. Our major bond was hockey—whether on the ice, road, or even a table-hockey set we literally absorbed the game. For more than three seasons we were involved full time with the Kelowna Buckaroos. I as a stick boy and trainer Danny as a statistician. Jim Melville lived less

than a block away and we hung out regularly between ages 15 and 20. James and I shared many wonderful times and crazy times, which frankly we were lucky to survive. Once again hockey was a big draw, but girls were even more interesting as was all the other good (and not so good) temptations and trials of teenage life. As often happens with childhood friends, years drifted by and communication faded away until I had completely lost track of both old friends.

Since then, Danny and I have been blessed to share many hours together and with luck I anticipate many more fun times ahead. We have yet to dig out the old hockey set but I know I can still kick his butt. (The gloves are off now, lol). There is some appropriate irony to all of this, I suppose. As a writer, I had to learn to adapt to the new media technology or die. While some might

suggest I have not adapted that well, I suppose I have maintained well enough to survive and enjoy the rewards of it all. It is difficult to even comprehend my world as a writer without use of the Internet. However, more than the convenience of never having to leave home to write a column or book—modern technology such as email and Facebook have impacted my world in a positive way.

I was six when a television first appeared in my home. It was a bulky beast with one or two channels in black and white. Since then TV has evolved to colour, cable, digital, flat screens… heck, I can even watch TV on my telephone. Speaking of technological changes—long gone is the wall phone or the rotary dial with only four numbers to remember.

Insurance company needs to ▼ spend some time G in spinal injury units

To the editor: I totally agree with Dr. Rick Dewar regarding spinal injuries whether complete or incomplete. (Insurance Company May Be Putting Its Financial ‘Injury’ Ahead of Rugby Player’s, Oct. 24 Capital News.) The insurance company does seems to be defending itself rather than supporting Mr. Campbell.   I have had extensive training in this area of nursing and was the charge nurse of a 40bed spinal unit—including ICU—in Perth, Western Australia. I have nursed and managed all degrees of spinal cord injured. Maybe the people from the insurance company need to spend some time in one of these places and see what goes on. Judith Grue, Kelowna

B.C. oil spill study misinterpreted, as usual

T

he release of the B.C. government’s detailed study into oil spill response capability off the West Coast created the usual brief wave of media shock and horror. ‘This just in! If crude oil spilled in the Dixon Entrance, the stormtossed sea lane north of Haida Gwaii, the combined resources of Canadian and U.S. containment and collection response could only recover an estimated four per cent of it. And that’s in the summer! The winter recovery rate would be more like three per cent.’ Talk radio and website headlines set the narrative in minutes. ‘How could anyone even consider running oil tankers through that pristine B.C. coastal

area? It’s crazy!’ Here’s the big fact clearly stated in the study by U.S.-based Nuka Research and Planning Group, and ignored by most of the Tom media and public. There Fletcher are hundreds of tankers filled with crude oil sailing through these stormy seas every year. It’s been going on since Alaska North Slope crude was developed in the 1970s. Six of the seven oil spill simulations run by Nuka are based on Alaska crude, because that’s overwhelmingly what has been shipped along B.C.’s North Coast for 40 years. This lack of crude oil spill response capability has existed the entire time, without a whisper of protest or media attention, even

VICTORIA VIEWS

after the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster near the oil’s point of origin. The current narrative, hammered home by U.S.-controlled environmental groups and their aboriginal partners in the “Great Bear Rainforest,” is that only Canadian oil is a threat. How much Alaska crude is shipped down the B.C. coast? According to Nuka’s analysis, it’s currently about 38 million cubic metres each year. That’s enough to fill B.C. Place stadium to the roof—15 times. The Sierra-Greenpeace-ForestEthics-Dogwood gang, a sort of billionaire-bankrolled green Team America, has worked hard to promote the falsehood that “tar sands” oil is vastly worse than that nice fair-trade Alaska stuff. Their claims about acidity and abrasiveness of diluted bitumen didn’t hold up, and it’s still hotly contested whether

the heavy oil in diluted bitumen would float, emulsify or sink in actual sea conditions. When the federal government announced a study to determine what spilled bitumen would do in North Coast waters, that too was attacked by the Green Party as a secret scheme to prop up Enbridge’s pipeline proposal. So it’s a scandal when you don’t know the answers, and it’s a scandal when you try to find them. Another question that gets little attention is whether it’s better for spilled oil to sink rather than wash up on beaches. Crude oil is, if you’ll pardon the expression, organic. Spills produce a huge spike in oil-eating bacteria that leads to an increase in fish populations at a cer-

Act of kindness came out of the blue To the editor: Two weeks ago I took my one year old granddaughter to the Orchard Park Mall in Kelowna. As one of our stops, we went into LoadZa Toyz, a lovely toy story in the mall. While we were looking at the toys, I let my granddaughter hold one of the Corolle dolls, a little baby doll, that the store had out to touch and feel. She immediately held the little dolly close to her, snuggled it in her stroller and gently patted the doll’s back. The store clerk and I were moved at how adorable this was.

Unbeknownst to us, an older gentleman, in a wheelchair was also observing my granddaughter’s face and the way she loved the dolly. Without further ado, the gentleman told the clerk he would like to purchase that doll for my granddaughter. I told him that it was a lovely gesture, but he certainly did not have to do that. He told me, “I know I don’t have to, I want to. You see I have no granddaughters of my own, so please allow me to do this.” This very sweet man then purchased a new doll of its kind that were on order and suggested to the clerk that my granddaughter take

Yet, as the events in Rexton, New Brunswick (Protest against development of a shale gas) show, our police force is enforcing a corporation’s rights over those of the citizens. Clearly, our government has no interest in protecting our land and, thereby, our well-being. Instead, we became a clearinghouse for our raw resources. Our real estate is being sold to foreign companies who tear up the environment and take away our oil, lumber and water while spitting pollutants into our

air, land and what water remains with impunity. They snake into our country behind the shield of free trade which, in most cases, opens the taps releasing our resources while providing these foreign invaders with rights that supersede our own. It used to be that the multinational companies went to developing countries to set up factories because of the lax environmental standards. Canada has become one of those countries. This inevitably pisses off citizens, giving rise to protest. The government steps in, calling these people radicals and proclaims that the invaders need protection. So, looking back towards Rexton, we see

the Elsipogtog First Nation trying to do something that the government ignores: Save their land and water from the carcinogenic damage from the chemical agents discharged from ‘fracking.’ Of course, the true damage is uncertain as scientists are silenced and environmental protection is given the pink slip. The only gauge is by looking at the illness and disease that come, after the fact. I look to Rexton and see a corporation under protection of the authorities, and those who oppose ‘business as usual’ are the targets of police brutality. This is not why I pay my taxes. This is not why we provide these corporations with tax cuts. These are signs of a

sick society. Is this the representation that taxation is supposed to represent? I think not. In protecting the corporation over the citizen, we are approaching a worrisome state of oligarchy. That’s “ruling by a small group of people distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, or military control.” We have a less-responsive government than most countries have under a dictatorship; our upholders of the law are dedicated to protecting foreign investors; and we have an economy catering to those who already have most of the money. I sense a flaw. The status quo must retire. How? With nonviolent rebellion, which

has been an unfortunate failure at Rexton; weapons are not needed to reach a strong agreement. If I choose not to support something, I stop investing my time and money in it. As I see our taxes, via policing, go into protecting the tax-protected, and I want to stop putting my money into it. I would much rather place those tax dollars in my community, to charities and non-profits working for our well-being. As well, our Members of Parliament are supposed to be our voice to oppose these matters. Speak up, MPs, or there will be more pink slips on the horizon. Darrin LR Fiddler, Kelowna

▼ CARING FOR ANIMALS

Work at the SPCA ‘not for the faint-hearted’ To the editor: Just a quick note about the Kelowna SPCA. My wife and I recently had to take in some stray cats. To our great relief none had to be put down; all were fixed and found

homes which is not always the case. I have come to realize just how difficult and challenging this kind of emotional and high stress work can be. It is not for the faint-hearted.

The kind of courage and compassion that it takes to deal with these situations is endowed to only a few like Tammy and Cam at our SPCA. My wife and I are in your debt.  

Thanks to all the management and staff as well as the many vets that give of their time at little or no cost to the SPCA. And to our readers; remember, this time of year the need for help is most

keenly felt as Christmas approaches, even for our furry friends at the SPCA.

tain stage. This was documented in a 1994 book called Degrees of Disaster, written by an expert who stayed on in Valdez for four years, long after the TV cameras and grandstanding politicians went home. Victoria-based Dogwood seized on a 2012 Nuka study done for the

Haisla Nation at Kitimat, which found that in ocean conditions that are present more than half of the time, there would be no immediate way to respond to a spill at sea. Dogwood’s “no tankers campaign director” hinted that this information was intentionally left out of the B.C. government study, and the media ate it up.

No tankers? Better check again. Dogwood’s mission is clearly not to protect the B.C. coast from oil spills. If it were, they would be protesting the ongoing risk from Alaska tankers. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter:@tomfletcherbc tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Dress up or dress down, but step up and volunteer

A

s woodland creatures begin to don their furry winter coats, with more under-layers than in summer, so too do humans dress up at this time of year, but for quite a different reason. Next week, they’ll be wearing all sorts of odd clothing, makeup and accessories as part of the annual Halloween events that conclude Thursday evening with parties and possibly trick or treating. Families can celebrate early by attending the Spooktacular Halloween Pumpkin Walk at the Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park this Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. in West Kelowna. Bring your own carved pumpkins with an LED tea light candle inside to light it up, to be placed along the trails in

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves the historic nut orchard between 3 and 5 p.m. I’ve always felt spirits of the past when wandering around in this pioneer collection of special local breeds of old nut trees and was so relieved when the community succeeded in purchasing the land to preserve it as a park. There’s so much we can do if we all work together on such a project. Sometimes we just have to do that in order to protect lands from development that have either historic or natural features that are important

to us. Often both are considerations. Anyway, from 5 to 8 p.m. you can then stroll the pathways to look at the various jack-o-lanterns created by you and your neighbours and vote for your favourite when you drop off a donation to the food bank. Hot drinks will be available and you’re reminded to wear your Halloween costume. Such an event goes back to the roots of Halloween as an evening dedicated to remembering those who went before us. So in making use of this somewhat ‘spooky’ historic setting, it’s only natural to feel a little haunted by thoughts of those who once bred, grew, tended and harvested the nuts from those big old trees. Earlier Sunday, you

can help out at a wood cutting day with volunteers from the Kelowna Nordic (cross country) Ski Club at McCulloch, off Highway 33. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Apple Bowl to car pool, at 8:30 a.m., or at the main cabin at 9:30 a.m. with splitting axes and mauls or a chainsaw. Logs are at the main cabin waiting to be cut up, split and taken to other cabins on the trails. Bring lunch and hotdogs. Workers will also cut brush along trails and do some cabin cleaning for the upcoming ski season. Passes for the year are now available on the website at kelownanordic.com Across the lake, Telemark Nordic Club is also holding an event Sunday, with the annual ski swap and annual gener-

al meeting at the chalet, with equipment drop-off beginning at 10 a.m., the sale beginning at noon and the agm in the lower chalet at 11 a.m. There will also be a Cyclocross bike race in the stadium during the morning. Ski passes are now available online and early bird prices are in effect until Oct. 31. Go to: www.telemarkx-c.com Both groups encourage people to volunteer to do your bit as they are non-profits, run by members. That’s also true of the Okanagan Trail Riders Association, who are stewards of the Bear Creek Off Highway Vehicle Recreation Site on the Westside. That means members are responsible for maintenance, trail building, event planning and host-

ing, promotions and marketing and other aspects, for Recreation Sites and Trails B.C. The OTRA agm is set for Monday, Nov. 4, 7 p.m., at Dakoda’s Sports Bar on Harvey Ave. and those interested in the riding area are asked to step up and offer to serve on the executive or volunteer for other tasks. For details, go to the website at: okanagantrailriders.com Such sport clubs are non-profits and depend on those interested in participating and using the facilities, to do their part to help out. Without volunteers, none of these facilities would exist, so chip in and help out in whatever way you can.

Free parking for Small Shop Saturday shoppers

The City of Kelowna will waive on-street parking charges this Saturday in support of the Downtown Kelowna Association’s Small Shop Saturday initiative. However, shoppers are reminded that posted time restrictions remain in effect. Vehicles can park for free, but posted time limits remain in effect so that convenient parking spaces are turned over for new customers. This is the third Small Shop Saturdays downtown this year as city council approved the free parking days in conjunction for that event for April 6, June 22 and Oct. 26.

Heat volleyball squads serve up a new season Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With two full seasons of CIS experience under their belts, UBC Okanagan men’s and women’s volleyball programs head into 2013-14 Canada West campaign with heightened expectations. The Heat will kick off the new campaign this weekend with a home-and-home set against Thompson Rivers University. The UBCO women and Wolfpack will play Friday night at the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops, before hooking up again Saturday, 7 p.m., inside the UBCO gym in Kelowna. The Heat men are home to TRU in Kelowna on Friday night at 7, then will travel to Kamloops on Saturday. Here’s a preview look at the Heat teams of 2013-14. ***

HEAT WOMEN

An impressive second season in Canada West saw the UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball team more than hold its own in the toughest conference in the nation. Head coach Steve Manuel, with a year of CIS experience under his belt, took his team to the brink of the Canada West final four and a hosting berth in the post season. Manuel improved his team by nine wins (15-7) and six spots (third) in the standings in a single year, and with the loss of just one starting player will once again set his sights on the post season. With more depth than he has ever had before, Manuel’s team heads into the season ranked No. 4 in the CIS. “We have a great mix of veterans playing in their final year of eligibility to go along with

the young talent that impressed everyone last year,” said Manuel. “One expectation that we have for our program is to continually improve, that is no different now. “We will look to compete the best we can in our extra tough conference, earn a spot in playoffs and see how far we can go into the post season.” Manuel will have two solid setters to orchestrate the offense this year as Chandler Proch returns to the lineup following major surgery and will be paired with CIS all-rookie team and Canada West all-star Emily Oxland. The second-year setter from North Vancouver set a conference record with 46 aces in her first year. Oxland won’t be the only sophomore to have a key role for this team as Megan Festival and Kaitlynn Given both saw significant floor time in their

UBC Okanagan’s Katy Klomps (left in photo above) and Emily Oxland are set for the start of the new Canada West women’s volleyball season this weekend against Thompson Rivers. Nate Speijer (right photo) will be back with the Heat men’s volleyball team after red-shirting last season to recover from an injury. freshman season and both played big roles over the summer for their respective provinces at the Canada Games. Four other members of the Heat were members of that B.C. squad and will all be a big part of UBC Okanagan this year. Oxland was B.C.’s setter, Brianna Beamish a third-year outside hitter, and the third-year middle duo of Katie Wuttunee and Katy Klomps also played for their province over the summer. Other key players are outside hitters Jill Festival and Myrte Schön, libero

Lenai Schmidt and former UBC Okanagan Heat athlete of the year middle Kendra Wayling, whose versatility has been invaluable to the squad over the years.

HEAT MEN

Two years in the Canada West conference have provided two very different results for the Heat, who head into the 20132014 season looking to return to the form that saw them gain a playoff berth in their inaugural CIS season. The Heat are looking at this season as a fresh

start. Heat head coach Greg Poitras has overhauled his roster and has brought in a very impressive recruiting class for this season in hopes of a return to the playoffs. “I would expect us to be in the middle of the conference this year, and that is not without a great deal of work and staying healthy,” said Poitras. “To contend with the top teams we are going to need to be patient and continue to learn and get better.” Heading the Heat recruiting class is Lars Bornemann, the stocky 6-foot-3, 205-pound out-

side-hitter from Victoria. A standout at Oak Bay Secondary for several years, Bornemann was arguably the top recruit in his class this offseason in B.C. Rounding out the recruiting class for the Heat are Kris McCrea and Chris Wilson. The Heat will also welcome the return of outside-hitter and perennial all-star Nate Speijer, who enters his final year of eligibility after red-shirting in 2012-13. “It is great to have our top scorer Nate back,” Poitras said. “He will rewrite the UBCO record

books this year.” Coordinating the attack for the Heat will be sophomore Kristof Schlagintweit, who enters his second season as the setter for UBC Okanagan. Other notable returning players for the Heat include libero Jeremy Fostvelt, outside hitter Alex Swiatlowski, and middles Joshua Harvey and Leo Schober. These four plus rightside Briercrest transfer Kyle Pankratz will all be presented with plenty of floor time and if any excel at the task they may drive the Heat back to the post-season.

Rockets forward makes NCAA commitment

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

After playing eight of their first 11 games at home, the Kelowna Rockets will get more acquainted with life on the road over the next two weeks. This Friday and Saturday nights, the Rockets will be at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre for a weekend doubleheader against the Victoria Royals. “We’ll get to spend some time together on the bus, away from the distractions of home,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “It’ll be good for the guys. “Playing two games in Victoria against the Royals will be a good, tough challenge for us.” The Royals (9-6-0) are an improved club over last season and currently lead the B.C. Division with 18 points, two better than the Rockets (7-2-0-2). However, Kelowna does hold four games in hand. Victoria’s attack is led by 20-year-old centre Logan Nelson (8 goals, 18 points), while Patrik Polivka (2.61 goals against) is the Royals’ workhorse in goal. The Royals edged Kelowna 4-3 in a shootout in the first meeting of the season on Sept. 28 at Prospera Place. After Victoria, the Rockets will have next week off before hitting the road again for Prince George, where Kelowna will take on the Cougars Nov. 1 and 2. The Rockets’ next home action is Wednesday, Nov. 6 against the Red Deer Rebels.

Okanagan Rockets forward Liam Finlay has verbally committed to the Denver Pioneers NCAA Division 1 hockey program for the 2016-2017 season. Rockets general manager David Michaud said that this is an exciting time for the 5-foot-7, 145-pound Finlay and the entire organization. “Liam’s development has progressed rapidly since joining the British Columbia Major Midget League (BCMML) last season as a 15-year-old,” said Michaud. “We are thrilled to have played a key role in Liam’s progression as a player. To have one of our players commit to an elite NCAA Division 1 hockey program early in his second year of midget hockey is a very rare occurrence and speaks to Liam’s dedication and

For the fifth straight year, graduating fullback Jennifer Kidd (Richmond) was named a provincial all-star while defender Hayley Carlson (2nd year, Red Deer), and keeper Christine Tallon (3rd year, Kamloops) received recognition from the league for

the second straight season. Junior midfielder Michelle Smith (Vernon) attained her first all-star after a very solid offensive season. The Heat women open up the provincials on Saturday in Nanaimo while the men’s soccer team failed to qaulify for the championships

WOMEN’S ALL-STARS

• Jennifer Kidd Five-time all-star Jennifer Kidd is a true modern-day fullback. Kidd can be lethal in either shutting down opponents at one end of the field, or scoring goals at the other. Not only can the 5-foot 2 Kidd strike from longrange but she is also highly adept at setting up her teammates from her fullback position. • Christine Tallon

In just 12 starts, fourthyear keeper Christine Tallon recorded seven shutouts—most in the PACWEST. The veteran keeper from Kamloops will routinely make huge stops and stymie an opposition’s best strikers, keeping the opposing squad off the board for multiple games. Steady and spectacular, Tallon’s play allows the Heat back-line to take chances in the attacking zone. • Hayley Carlson Carlson is a co-captain for the Heat and simply cannot be taken off the field—she has played every minute of every match. This incredibly athletic central defender has been fantastic all year for the Heat and has been more than instrumental in her team’s success this year. An all-star

in the classroom, this fantastic student-athlete has consistently maintained a ninety percent average in nursing. • Michelle Smith Smith earned her first all-star, and has made many a spectacular play on headers, using her great vertical to win balls and set up the Heat offense. Four of her six goals on the season came off headers. A 5-foot4 midfielder, Smith has slick feet and uses her superior ball control to make plays happen.

MEN’S ALL-STARS

• Austin Jones Jones earned his second straight all-star after a solid all-around season that saw the striker score goals in five straight games in one stretch. His technical ability with the

Rutland U16 girls win cup tourney

football, and strong finishing ability struck fear into opposing defenses for the majority of the season. His quick, precise passing ability has set up numerous goals over his career at UBC Okanagan.

• Donald Straith Straith is a leader of the Heat men’s soccer team both on the field and in the locker-room. The midfielder has a high work ethic and strong skills in the midfield. He

is essential to the team’s set pieces and handles most of the Heat corners. While proving to be a very effective passer in setting up the Heat attack with a well-placed through ball.

The Rutland U16 girls soccer team struck gold at the Central Okanagan Youth Soccer Association’s season-ending Kelowna Cup Tournament. On Saturday, Rutland defeated the Lake Country Suncity Ligers 3-1, as goals came from Courtney Collingwood, MacKenzie Miles and Jordie Mellen. In the gold medal match, Rutland took on another Lake Country team in the Storm. “We knew we were in for a battle with this team as they were a bit bigger and stronger players” said Rutland coach Dave Marshall. “We aren’t the strongest team on the field but when it comes to determination and drive, we dominate as a team.” After being outplayed in the first half Rutland was down 1-0. Jazz Digpaul played outstanding in net for the first 40 minutes facing 28 shots. Twelve minutes into the second half, Courtney Collingwood broke through the Storm’s defense to score the equalizing goal. Rutland began to pour on the pressure which led to another goal by Jazz Digpaul. With eight minutes left in the game, all three substitutions were injured,

Dylan Wagner was the top scorer at the competition and currently the holder of the BC Golden boot award from 2012. In the tournament final it came down to a penalty kick from captain Stag McDonald to secure a 1-0 win over KSS in a very competitive final. Both teams produced some excellent soccer and created a number of chances but the defensive organization in both teams made it hard on the offenses. With 15 minutes to go before half time, McDonald was brought down in the box which resulted in the decisive penalty kick. Walker Shanks was awarded man of the match in the final and Spencer Young was awarded MVP of the tournament.

Tae Kwon Do schools collect medals A group of Kelowna Tae Kwon-Do students from Quest Martial Arts Academy traveled recently to the 3rd annual Trail Championships, featuring schools from Calgary, Kamloops, Cranbrook and host Trail. The medal haul was led by 2013 world gold medallist Carson Benedict who won both the adult advanced patterns and sparring division, and the black belt lightweight sparring division. Then Benedict helped his team to the gold in team sparring. Connie Vetter-Johnson also won three gold medals claiming the patterns, sparring and weapon patterns divisions. In all Quest Martial Arts athletes brought home 19 medals. “It is great to see our students win medals,” said Chief Instructor Chris Rowe. “They worked hard to prepare for this tournament.  It shows their discipline and character to go and compete hard, yet still be in the moment to support and encourage players from other schools. Martial arts is about creating a better community.” •••

Members of Sundance Taekwon-do from Kelowna and Vernon achieved major success at the Inaugural International Taekwon-Do Federation BC Cup held at Rutland Secondary School earlier this month. The ITF Taekwon-Do BC Cup, featured 151 competitors from 17 different clubs all over B.C. and Alberta. Okanagan based Sundance Taekwon-Do sent a team of 25 competitors bringing home a huge haul of 35 medals: 13 gold, seven silver and 15 bronze. “All of our students worked really hard and showed an incredible level of sportsmanship throughout the event,” said instructor David White who also serves as vice president of the International Taekwon-Do Federation of B.C. Local black belts Kelly Kinniburgh, Abbie Bennett and Brad Cotey all earned spots on the Canadian delegation at the National Championships in May in Quebec City. At the B.C. Cup athletes competed in three disciplines: Patterns, light-contact sparring and

power breaking. All Sundance athletes walked away with hardware at this first of its kind event. The school with the highest average results at the end of the day was Freedom Taekwon-Do in Prince George. Sundance was second overall in the standings followed by Triumph Taekown-Do from Port Coquitlam in third. “Our members all put forth a great effort and trained incredibly hard for this event and we could not be more proud as a school. This was a great learning experience for all of us and a great way to kick off the new season,” said White. Individual results from the International Taekwon-do Federation B.C.

Native son brings buddies to town Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

He shoots, he scores a big rolling party. Kelowna native Chad Brownlee is bringing a few buddies from Nashville home to Kelowna for the Your Town Throwdown Tour, which basically includes Brownlee,

Deric Ruttan and Jason Blaine, three good ’ol Canadian boys, showing each Canadian haunt they encounter exactly how a little lighthearted revelry is done. “Deric’s basically got this thing where he’s challenging each town to party even harder than the last,” said Blaine, a 33-year-old

Pembroke, Ontario native who won a Canadian Country Music Award for his song They Don’t Make ‘Em Like That Anymore in 2012. Ruttan, whose song Take The Week Off, is number three on the Top Country Charts this week, holds the only brassiere trophy of the tour; so he’s

clearly the leader of the party bus. The bra hit him in the face in Halifax and is hanging from an amplifier as an endearing challenge to his tour mates. Each one of these artists have knocked a few hits out of the park at this point in their careers— Ruttan under his own name and as a songwriter-for-hire—but only Brownlee can lay claim to the hometown hero title and, though just 29 years old, he’s also the only one to excel in two career paths. Before the big ‘n’ of his dreams was Nashville, it was the ‘n’ in NHL with music providing a nice escape from the pressures of trying to meet that bar. He was picked as a sixthround draft pick by the Vancouver Canucks, played for the Idaho Steelheads, but left the sport after the injuries started piling up. “The transition at first was a little bit tough.

Your Town Throwdown is sponsored by Forty Creek Whiskey, a sponsor that suites a cottage country Ontario native like Ruttan who said that when life on the bus starts, all thoughts of writing and the work-a-day life end. “It’s interesting.

Willie Nelson still calling the shots, now into his 80s WILLIE NELSON: TO ALL THE GIRLS… (SONY) Willie Nelson is on a bit of a late career roll with his fifth album in about two years. That is an amazing pace for a man who tours a lot, considering he is also 80 years old. His last disc, Lets Face The Music And Dance, came out only a few months ago and it was an all-cover disc of standards from The American Songbook. This new album is in a similar vein and it is especially lengthy at 18 tracks and 66 minutes as Nelson sings every song as a duet with a different female partner. The album title riffs off one of his older hits To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before which was a crossover hit duet with Julio Eglesias. Nelson tours and records with his full time band road band which gives his albums an organic feel with few if any overdubs and a simple, often acoustic, straight forward sound. Although there are 18 varied songs on To All The Girls… the sound remains consistent, even perhaps a little too samey, but Nelson in his dotage calls the shots and his fans seem to like it this way. The most obvious potential hit here is a fine remake of his old hit Al-

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell ways On My Mind with Carrie Underwood which offers a bit of radio friendly country-politan with its sweet string laden accents. But there are many fine and eclectic tracks here as well. Check out the light Tex Mex of No Mas Amor with Alison Krauss against the speedy honky tonk of his older original Bloody Mary Morning with Wynonna Judd. Nelson revisits his old ‘country outlaw’ past by covering Waylon Jennings’ song She Was No Good For Me with current star Miranda Lambert while he completely changes channels with a 1940s Texas Swing song Til The End Of The World with Shelby Lynne. Next you hear Nelson and EmmyLou Harris trying on a little Nebraska era Bruce Springsteen with the country folk of Dry Lightning before venturing into a torch ballad with Lily Meola on Will You Remember

Mine. Like I said, this album is all over the country map but Nelson’s distinctive voice and his regular Family Band all seem to level out the stylistic meanderings here while Willie remains the ever more restive Willie. Other singers of note here include Sheryl Crow (another country-politan), Mavis Staples (acoustic gospel funk), Loretta Lynn (singing Haggard), Roseanne Cash (singing Kristofferson) and Norah Jones on the classic country weeper Walkin’.

ALLEN TOUSSAINT: SONGBOOK (ROUNDER/DECCA)

After the disaster of the Katrina hurricane in 2005 the legendary New Orleans musician, songwriter, arranger, producer, pianist etc., Allen Toussaint was left without a home and without his famed Seasaint studio. He consequently moved to New York and, oddly enough, this really rekindled his career. He released a big selling album in collaboration with Elvis Costello titled The River In Reverse that hit No.2 on the jazz charts while he started playing live concerts again. This new album was recorded live at the ven-

erable Joe’s Cafe in New York with just Toussaint and his signature piano with no other help and it is a fascinating showcase. Although the album is titled Songbook, this concert wasn’t just a chance for Toussaint to march out his many, many hits (most recorded by other people) as he sings a few lesser known nuggets as well as a superb instrumental version of the traditional St. James Infirmary. Sometimes Toussaint will mention whom his song was written for, such as the opener It’s Raining which was a hit for Irma Thomas, but usually he just plays his well worn material without much comment. So check out the cool R&B pop of Lipstick Traces (On A Cigarette) covered by Ringo and The O’Jays as well as the evergreen Holy Cow which was a ’60s smash for Lee Dorsey (although others may remember the Rod Stewart version as well). Toussaint gets a bit more jazzy on his Costello collaborations All These Things and the neocivil rights song Who’s Gonna Help Brother Get Farther which is timely since the red state republicans all over the south have just recently repealed several voting

rights rules designed to gives a running biography disenfranchise minorities. of his young life going But there are three out to the country outside tracks that really stood out New Orleans to stay at his for me. grandparents house as a These include the pre-teen. warm homage to ScotThe house had no runtish singer Frankie Miller ning water, no electricity for whom Toussaint wrote and an outhouse but TousBrickyard Blues (Canuck saint said he never felt Scot Johnny Reid brought safer or more loved than Miller’s U.K. hit Darat that house. lin’ to these shores) while of the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen Toussaint informs us that his blues Get Out My Life Woman is his most recorded song ever by other artists (who include Jimi Hendrix and The Doors). The final track is his 13-plus minute version of the Central and South Southern Nights whichofOkanagan / Similkameen was a massive hit for Glen Campbell at the height of his career. On this opus Toussaint

Anyway, a tremendous and very intimate concert from one of America’s living masters but keep in mind that this is a bare bones vocal/ piano presentation only and probably best for true fans. B+ mooseman19@telus.net

MUCH of Santo Domingo’s urban and historical richness lives in the Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo.

JOSH NOEL/CHICAGO TRIBUNE/MCT

▼ CARIBBEAN

Digging into Santo Domingo’s history Josh Noel CONTRIBUTOR

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic—During four days in the historic heart of the Dominican capital, I saw men gather every afternoon in the central square to play dominoes, usually ringed by crowds of onlookers. I saw four women park beside the rolling Caribbean Sea on a Friday afternoon to crack bottles of Presidente beer and play ground-shaking music in celebration of the weekend. In a park where artisans sold their wares, I sipped rum and watched women with their hair pulled into tight buns and men with long beards pound drums, blow horns and sing in a festive circle—just because. What I didn’t see in those four days was a single sunbather. That’s right: a weekend in the Caribbean without a beach, a bathing suit or the words “all inclusive.” That’s heresy for some perhaps but

also a fascinating and decidedly “normal” view of the other Caribbean—the cities, families, culture and history. Among the liveliest intersections of such richness is the Dominican capital, a city of 3 million that stakes a claim

as the nexus of the New World. Christopher Columbus landed on the island’s north coast in 1492, and his family stayed for generations. Much of Santo Domingo’s urban and historical richness lives in the Zona Colonial, which is

many things at once: It is a living-history UNESCO World Heritage site, a heavily touristed tapestry of parks, shops, restaurants and street merchants, and it is a neighbourhood that people call home. Wander its side streets, and Santo Domin-

go becomes a world of open doors and windows into the lives of the people there: women cooking, children playing. But with ample hotels, restaurants and historical sites, it is well equipped for tourism without managing to ever feel too touristy. That’s especially true late on weekend nights, when Dominican youths flood the area to hang out in darkened parks with an easy joy; everyone looks good, but no one is too dressed up. Restaurants and art galleries stay open late, and music echoes through the cobblestone streets long into the night. The city also comes with plenty of hustle. On Calle El Conde, the brick pedestrian walkway just west of Zona Colonial, seemingly everything is for sale: clothes, art, shoes, baseball caps, and ancient books and magazines (the May 1979 National Geographic, for example). Offers of taxi and carriage rides are nearly Santo Domingo A29

two of its residents—a shirtless man and a woman in a tank top, both of whom appeared to be in their 20s—emerged with a radio, bobbing their heads to a percussion-heavy soundtrack.

We caught eyes, traded smiles and nodded hello. At moments like that, so far from the beach, I gladly reminded myself that I was in the Caribbean.

The beef, chicken, rice, potatoes and remarkable sauces seemed like something I’d find in someone’s home. The place for those who eschew meat is Crudo (Calle Arzobispo Portes 152), a vegetarian restaurant that still relies on classic Dominican (and foreign) spices and flavors. Do: In the Zona Colonial, the best thing to do is walk. Though Dominicans themselves warned me about muggings and crime, I never felt unsafe. There is more history than most people will want to see, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t investigate. Musts include the Catedral Primada de America in Parque Colon, which is the oldest operating cathedral in the Americas, and Museo Alcazar de Colon, which is the former home of Christopher Columbus’

son, Diego. The Dominican baseball season is from mid-October to mid-January. Santo Domingo is home to two teams that share the 16,500-seat Estadio Quisqueya, a 15-minute cab ride from the Zona Colonial. Seats behind home plate are about $10. If you want to tack on a beach vacation while visiting Santo Domingo but don’t want to travel far, do as the locals do and head one hour east to Juan Dolio, where there are several all-inclusive resorts. Because they often cater to locals as much as (if not more than) foreigners, the prices are quite reasonable. More information: santodomingotourism. com, zonacolonial.com.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan

The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.

KEITH MORGAN

The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch

at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

Leipzig: Birthplace of truly green machines BMW even boasts the lithium ion batteries that will power each car’s motor will outlive the individual car’s life. LEIPZIG, Germany: BMW believes there is a big future for wind power in its cars. No, not for the propulsion of the prestige brand’s models but the making of their sleek machines of the future. Long before visitors arrive at the auto manufacturer’s new hi-tech factory in this economically depressed region of what was once communist East Germany, they greeted with a wave from four giant wind turbines. Those metal giants power the production of the impressive five-seater BMW i3, test driven today in Driveway. The i3 models now roll silently off the production line; silently, not just because it’s an all-electric vehicle but also because the entire manufacturing process rarely rises above a whisper. The BMW i3 is the first of the manufacturer’s projects for which the environmental sustainability objectives were determinedly set at the same high standards as the economic goals applied to the manufacturing process. Next year, it will be joined by the i8, which looks every inch a super-sports

car. To achieve those lofty dual goals, the BMW Group retains close control over

“The energy used is 50 per cent of that required to turn out a conventional car.” the complete production process from the carbon fibre production, which starts in a hydroelectric powered plant in Moses Lake, Wa. Entire noisy and stinky processes associated with manufacturing in steel are gone. Robots screw and bond the important parts together and send the shells on their way, suspended form an overhead rail. Happy workers can actually hear each other chat down on the factory floor, bathed in sunlight and breathing freely courtesy of an efficient hi-tech ventilation system. Amazingly, the energy used is 50 per cent of that required to turn out a conventional car and 70 per cent less water is used. My group roamed

around looking for waste, which turned out to be a waste (of time) in itself. The bits and bats and ‘wasted’ trim are gathered up and recycled for use elsewhere along the production line. BMW even boasts the lithium ion batteries that will power each car’s motor will outlive the individual car’s life. They can be used as storage batteries when the car is put out to pasture, sorry, recycled. If one of the eight modules should fail then a replacement easily drops in rather than there be a need for an entire battery replacement. The lightweight body is also designed with a view to quick and economical repair in the event of a collision. Body parts again drop into place with the minimum of fuss and cost. They say the cost of a fix will likely mirror that of putting a BMW 1-series back on the road after a similar crash. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca twitter.com/changegears

Next year the BMW i8 will be manufactured using environmentally sustainable manufacturing.

Near new…A look at Ford Fusion 2010 to 2012 Amid lingering global financial turmoil, recession recovery was already in high-gear at Ford, with an over a 40 per cent yearover-year sales gain that made Ford the top-selling automaker in Canada, in 2009. It was also the year it launched an all-new 2010 model year version of its popular mid-sized family car the Ford Fusion. The 2010 Fusion was offered in SE and SEL trim levels with a choice of a 2.5-litre I4 or a 3.0-litre V6 engines and a 3.5-litre V6 powered an all-new Fusion Sport model with all-wheeldrive. Ford also introduced its first hybrid edition of Fusion with an Atkinson cycle version of the 2.5-litre engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). The hybrid’s battery is a nickel-metal hydride type that’s smaller and lighter than competitors and it’s temperature is controlled by air extracted from the passenger cabin. Claimed city/ highway fuel consumption is a very impressive 4.6/5.4 L/100km.

Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings helped the 2012 Ford Fusion get a “Recommend” rating from Consumer Reports.

additional sound deadening in the trunk and a new headliner in the cabin that’s made with an absorption material. An air filter that removes respiratory irritants and toxins from entering the cabin was also a new standard feature of Fusion. A new standard innovation was a fuel filler system

called EasyFuel. Not only does it eliminate the need to remove a gas cap when filling up, it reduces evaporative emissions. You simply push the fuel-pump nozzle into a gas tank receptacle and it automatically seals shut when removed. Six standard airbags helped the Fusion attain a top fivestar crash-test rating. If an air bag is deployed, Fusion also has a unique emergency alert system that flashes the hazard warning lights and sounds the horn, to attract attention. An electronic stability-control system with a brake-activated traction control system was a new standard safety feature. The MyKey security system was made a standard feature on the 2011 Fusion, a spotter mirror, to help eliminate blind spots, was incorporated in the door mirrors and the SE edition got standard automatic headlights.

Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings helped the 2012 Ford Fusion get a “Recommend” rating from Consumer Reports. Ford Fusion buyers also benefit from having a good supply of them on the market and used prices tend to be rea-

sonable. A potentially great value pre-owned purchase. Prices (see inset box) vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history. A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase. Recalls on the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion:

Fuel consumption ratings for the other Fusion engines are as follows; 9.4/6.4 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.5-litre; 11.1/7.3 (city/ highway) for the 3.0-litre V6 models; and 12.7/8.3 (city/ highway) for the 3.5-litre with all-wheel drive. A new optional safety feature on the 2010 Fusion (well worth having) was a Blind Spot system that comes with Cross Traffic Alert, which was a unique to Ford system. Radar sensors in the rear side quarter panels can detect a moving object within a 20 metre (65-ft) range on either side. Great to have when vision is restricted (as it often is) when backing out of a parking stall. This generation is also a quieter Fusion. Changes to reduce cabin noise levels include an acoustic windshield, thicker front-door glass, new hood insulators,

products and more. Not to mention, if she can pack in her sports equipment like her bicycle, snowboard or surfboard in, too, that would be even better. Price was also a factor for her. “I had a budget to work with, and I needed my payments to be around $500 a month,” Amy mentions. “And since I’d be spending a fair amount of time behind the wheel, I’d need something that was comfortable, too.” When chatting about potential matches, the idea of a minivan came up. I saw the excitement in her eyes. In her personal life, she is not the typical minivan candidate. With no children to drive to hockey or soccer practice, some people might question her enthusiasm. But to her, it seemed like the perfect fit. “I was just so excited about it. Minivans make life so much easier and you can just do so much with them,” she explains. “It made a lot more sense than a pickup and much more sense than an SUV.” A few minivans/minivan-esque vehicles she looked into were the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Mazda5. Though the Honda and Toyota appealed to her, it was the Dodge Grand Caravan that had exactly what she was looking for. It was in her price range and had some handy features that would allow easy loading and unloading of her gear. She even really likes its look. Amy tells me, “I can fit two mountain bikes inside with people and still have room for more.” The Dodge Grand Caravan that she selected is the Crewe trim, which also came with some extras.

She has a towing package, a rear DVD entertainment system (perfect for passing time on ferry rides!), Stow ‘n Go seats, remote keyless entry to the doors and liftgate and more. While she can’t be happier with her purchase, the signing on the dotted line did make her heart beat quite a bit faster. “There’s a lot of anxiety to buying a car. It’s a big purchase and you want to make sure you make the best choice you can.” And speaking of choices, the biggest question when selecting her chariot of choice? “Should I get the white one or the black one?!” she jokingly asked. She went with black. When looking back on the experience and looking at her Grand Caravan, she happily says, “What I didn’t think would be very sexy vehicle ended up being the sexiest to me. And there’s so much space!” Ladies, if you’re looking at buying a new vehicle and would like some suggestions/assistance, email the Car Girl’s Garage and you could potentially be featured in Driveway.

Facts & Tips Tire pressure monitoring system It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to tell if tires are under-inflated just by looking at them. Yet most drivers don’t check tire pressure regularly. Proper tire pressure saves money, fuel consumption, helps the environment—and saves lives. Having TPMS on vehicles helps to keep Canada’s roads safe by giving drivers the critical warning they need when one or more of their tires has low air pressure.

Facts on Maintaining Proper Tire Pressure: • Saving lives—vehicle safety and performance Under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure (2). Even if your tires look fine, they could be underinflated by as much as 20 per cent (1). According to a recent study, about 50 per cent of the vehicles on the road in Canada have at least one tire that is either over or underinflated by more than

under-inflated by 25 per cent. TPMS improves your vehicle’s handling and stability, decreasing your chances of catastrophic tire failure and having an accident. While not currently mandated, an estimated 70 per cent of new vehicles (model year 2007+) sold in Canada are TPMS-equipped (3). Starting in 2007, TPMS became a legislated feature on all passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. Tips for Drivers: Get in the habit of manually checking your tire pressure at least once a month or before a long road trip. Even if your vehicle has TPMS installed, regular tire maintenance is the best way to increase your safety. The best way to get the most accurate reading is to check your tire pressure before you drive, when the tire is cold. To determine if your vehicle has TPMS, look for the TPMS symbol on the dashboard when you first turn

your key to the on position. Consult your owner’s manual for more information. When installing winter tires or buying new wheels, be sure to have TPMS sensors installed in the wheels. Failure to do this will make your TPMS inoperative. Large temperature drops, usually during winter, can cause the low tire pressure warning to come on. Have a tire service centre properly check your tire pressure and TPMS if this happens. TPMS batteries, expected to last between five and seven years (or approximately 140,000—160,000km/ year), are encased and can’t be replaced. Since some of the first TPMS-equipped vehicles have now been on the road for more than five years, drivers will soon need to see TPMS specialists for maintenance. Once the battery dies, a new TPMS sensor must be installed. When the TPMS illuminates on your dashboard, it means one or more of your tires may be at least 25 per cent below recommended inflation pressure. Pull over and check your tire pressure. Once checked, if the tires appear normal, proceed with caution to a tire service centre to have them properly inspected. Sources 1. Transport Canada 2. Canada Safety Council 3.

Maintaining proper tire pressure could save you approximately two weeks of fuel a year, enough to pay for one full set of tires over the average 9-year life of a vehicle (5). Under-inflation also reduces tire life. Driving with tires that are under-inflated by 8 PSI will increase tire wear by 16 per cent (approximately 15,000 km). This will hit your pocketbook as you will have to replace tires sooner than you would if they were properly maintained (4).

• Saving money Fuel consumption increases by 1 per cent for every 5 per cent of under-inflation. Operating a vehicle with just one tire under-inflated by 8 PSI can reduce the life of the tire by 15,000 km and can increase the vehicle’s fuel consumption by 4 per cent (4). Example: —If fuel costs $1.32/litre and it takes approximately 9.1 litres per 100 km = $12.01 / 100 km. —Increasing fuel consumption by 4 per cent = $12.47/100 km —If you average 22,000 km / year, you would save $100 annually ($2642 vs. $2743) by keeping proper tire pressure.

10 per cent. In fact, 10 per cent of all vehicles surveyed had at least one tire underinflated by 20 per cent (1). When your tires don’t have the right amount of air, the sides flex, bend and build heat. Underinflated tires compromise your vehicle’s steering, braking and cornering abilities. Operating a vehicle with just one tire underinflated by 8 PSI can reduce the life of the tire by 15,000 km (1). • Saving fuel and the environment Annually, 643 million litres of extra fuel are consumed by Canadian vehicles because of improper tire maintenance practices. As a result, over one million tonnes of carbon dioxide are unnecessarily released into the environment (4). Canadians dispose of 29 million used tires every year, which has a significant impact on landfills. Even modest improvements in extending tire life could have a significant positive impact on our environment as energy used to produce new tires emits harmful pollutants into the atmosphere (4).

Winter is almost here, and Integra Tire wants to get you and your vehicle ready for a safe season of snowy driving with the Fall Love Your Ride Tire Event. From now until December 15th you could get huge savings up to $50 on select sets of tires. And when you visit your local Integra Tire this fall, you could WIN one of SIX $500 gift certificates.

Drives-U Crazy…Erratic drivers An early morning drive from Kelowna to Vancouver is normally a pleasurable experience. But a recent a jaunt was made much less so by an erratic driver, whose actions required all fellow travellers to watch his antics with great care and at-

tention. The young guy at the wheel of a late model Honda CR-V constantly changed speed, below and beyond the posted speed limit. If he wasn’t passing and cutting in too early, he was inexplicably reducing his speed and dropping back in the passing lane.

Thank goodness, he pulled off at Merritt. What drives-u-crazy. kmorgan@blackpress.ca

The top GT with the larger engine, 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, Bose stereo and navigation, ranges from $25,855-$$29,855. As you can see, the price can ratchet up rather quickly. The upside is that this is a car that can provide solid, fun to drive transportation, wrapped in a stylish package. Higher-end models feel like a much more expensive car, with qualities not found previously in this class of car. So, the price might be justified. I truly believe that Mazda is onto something, this is the best car in the compact class.

2013

The lighter platform and powerful 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp is a nice match on the base and GS trim levels, driving either a 6-speed manual or all-new 6-speed automatic. The top GT is equipped with a 2.5L engine with 184hp but is only available with the automatic. I’m surprised that the manual is not offered with this engine, as driving enthusiast will be attracted to this engine right away. On the road, the steering is very quick and the feedback well above average. The previous Mazda3 was at the top of the class in terms of driving dynamics and this new model takes it to a whole new level. I’m confident in saying that this new model feels like a much more expensive car. Verdict The standard features list is strong, including keyless entry, push button start, Bluetooth and USB connectivity for $15,995. If you equip the base model with air conditioning and automatic transmission, the price jumps to $18,795. The middle GS trim is the place most Canadians will

Mel peacefully passed away after a short stay in Hospice House, his wife, daughter and sisters and family always at his side. He will be sadly missed by his loving and devoted wife Doreen, his daughter Dr. Judy Forrester, son Brian, granddaughters Savanah and Avalon, sisters Audrey and Lois. Also survived by his stepdaughter Sharron and George Young, step Grandchildren Shelly Wolf Breakey, Sean (and Michelle) Wolf, Michael, Warren and Ryan Young, step great grandchildren Aubrey Laine Breakey, Megan and Emily Monick, and Hunter Young. Also surviving are his nephews David (and Karen), Stephen (and KP), and Murray, nieces Janice and Wendy and great nieces Heather and Allison, Kaitlin, Breanna, Caylen, Lauren and Jamie, great nephews Tim, Simon, Craig and Brenden, great great nieces Kalena Johanna, and Laykl. Mel was born the son of store owners in Anneroid Sask., and at a very early age he realized his love for music and dancing. Whenever possible where there was a country dance he would be there. He persued his love of music by teaching himself the saxophone, clarinet, banjo, harmonica and guitar and played for his own pleasure. At a young age he got hired with the Credit Union but when he was told that he had to go to Vancouver to pursue his career he quit and decided to get a trade in carpentry. He moved to Calgary where he was very successful renovating and building and owning several residentail buildings. He met Doreen, in July 1982, and after a lengthy courtship they married in July 1993. Together they built their dream home and traveled the world over. In the winter, they would retreat to their home in Mesa for six months and always take a few cruises in between. One of his greatest loves was entertaining, and they always were having people over for dinner and then off to one of their favorite dance places. In 2002 they made the big decision to move to Kelowna to be in a warmer climate. After retiring, Mel decided to try his hand at art and after a couple of classes he was well on his way to producing some great pieces, capturing anything from Grey Owls Cabin, to gardenias, to landscapes of Spain and Arizona. Many a piece now hang in friends and family’s homes. If he wasn’t painting you could find him at his work bench making bird houses or making wooden garden figures. He was always busy and then would sit down with one of his Louis Lamour books. He was an avid hiker and at a very late stage in his life he proudly hiked the Chilcoot Trail plus many trails in Alberta and B.C. He was so grateful to have lived to the age he was without a broken bone or serious illness. Near the end his only comment was “I am just getting too old” and decided his favourite place was his comfy bed, where he lived out his last couple of months. By his request there will be no funeral. He wanted everyone to get together in his memory to enjoy what he loved best, a good dinner, live music and dancing. This celebration of his life will take place in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice House, Kelowna, B.C. To Those I Love And Those Who Loved Me When I am gone, release me, and let me go, I have so many things to see and do. You must not tie yourselves to me with tears, Be Happy that we had so many years. I gave to you my Love, but you can only guess, How much you gave to me in Happiness. I think you for the Love you have shown, But now it’s time I traveled alone. So grieve awhile for me, if you must. Then let grief be comforted by Trust. It’s only for a short time that we must part, So Bless the Memories with your Heart. I won’t be far away, but Life goes on, So if you need me, Call and I will come. Though you can’t see me or touch me...I’ll be near, With all of my Love around you soft and clear And when this way you must come, I’ll greet you with a smile and a ‘Welcome Home’.

Some common questions related to mortgages

Tips for listing your house during slow sales season Below are some tips on how to successfully list and sell your house in the fall and winter real estate market. 1. Choose bright interior lighting. It is important to make your home appear warm and inviting to potential buyers. 2. Limit personalized holiday décor. Potential home buyers want to picture themselves in your home. Keep personal items and memorabilia to a minimum. 3. Use snow-free pictures in your listing. If possible, have your listing photos taken before the first snowfall. This will give potential buyers a better picture of your home’s exterior. 4. Keep your home warm during showings. Set the thermostat at a comfortable level or consider asking your realtor to turn on your gas fireplace for a showing. 5. Shovel and salt your walkways and driveway. In doing so, you make your home more accessible, increase curb appeal and show potential buyers that your home is well-maintained and cared for.

Winter is just around the corner and it’s important to get the exterior of your house ready for the cold months ahead. Heavy snow, cold winds and icy weather can damage your property and lead to expensive repair bills down the road. To get your property winter ready, we’ve asked the experts at Canadian Tire Home Services to share some easy and important tips for homeowners:

Inspect your roof: Inspect your roof with binoculars to ensure your shingles are not turning up at the edges, worn or falling off. Damage to shingles can cause melted snow and ice to seep into your home causing leaks and potentially expensive water damage. Clean your gutters: Remove any leaves, twigs and buildup from your gutters to allow water to run off properly and prevent

water damage. Put away outdoor furniture, playground equipment and trampoline sets: Winter storms are often accompanied by high winds which can damage these items. Since you are unlikely to use outdoor furniture and play equipment until the spring, look for a place to store them. Prepare your trees and garden: Protect young trees and plants by wrapping them in plastic guards

or burlap. Doing so will extend their life and prevent animals and rodents from eating your shrubs during the colder months. Also be sure to remove fallen leaves and debris from your yard to prevent damage to the grass. For more information on how to prepare your property for the winter season, visit your local Canadian Tire store or www. homeservices.canadiantire.ca.

in less water being wasted and save on costs. Replace old windows to keep heat from escaping. Windows do have a shelf life and although

it may be a large home improvement task, upgrading them will save you tons of money on energy bills. Inefficient, sin-

gle-panes, in particular, should be replaced—and the money you spend on installing new windows will be recouped with each energy bill.

Today we would like to offer some answers to questions commonly asked to mortgage brokers about financing a mortgage. Is it true we can only get a 25 year amortization on our mortgage? One of the changes to mortgage financing was reducing the amortization on mortgages with less than 20 per cent equity (high ratio mortgages) from 30 to 25 years. The fact is, if you have a conventional mortgage with 20 per cent equity or more, you can obtain an amortization up to 35 years. Why should we use the services of a mortgage broker? A mortgage broker will work for you and obtain the best terms and conditions available in the market place. We have access to several financial institutions that offer the best rates and pre-payment conditions. Also, we complete one credit check and we are paid by the financial institution, not you. If my credit is damaged what can you do for me? We can find a lender that will allow you to re-establish your credit to allow you to refinance with a major lender once your credit has improved. This allow you to get back on your feet financially. What type of mortgage should we take? We will walk through all the various scenarios with you and give you the options that will best suit your needs. It’s not just what is good for you right now but we ask questions as to your future requirements. We will make you aware of your prepayment options and help you save interest costs. Why do we have to have a lawyer/notary involved with the mortgage? A lawyer/notary will ensure the mortgage is in good standing and all previous charges are discharged so there will be no surprises later on that could adversely affect the title. What does it mean if you have a “pre-approved” mortage? Pre-approval means just that. In order to have a full approval all conditions have to be met. All the information must be submitted to the lender for the final approval. In the case of a property purchase that means: confirmation of employment, credit checks, an accepted offer to purchase appraisal if required and confirmation of down payment. In the case of a refinance: confirmation of employment, credit checks, mortgage statement if applicable and an appraisal if needed.

Motorized window coverings operated remotely According to the experts, motorized shades are hotter than ever—and no wonder. Energy management, convenience, glare control, privacy and security, UV protection for furniture and carpeting, plus an increasing number of skylights and hard-to-reach windows are cited as the leading reasons why. With or without power, Hunter Douglas window treatments excel as window dressing solutions. Now the company has announced its new Platinum App to give you more precise than ever before of its battery-powered products from your mobile device. This is the first ‘shade-control’ app available as a free download with no service fees. The Platinum App is controlled directly from an Apple mobile device— and the setup is easy and requires minimal hardware. After a few short, preliminary steps, the app lets you operate all the Hunter Douglas window coverings in your home (or in

your rooms) at the same time, or one shade at a time—in real time. Or, you can use the timer feature to schedule your shade movement for later. Operate the window coverings by scene (activity), by room or by time. The Platinum App puts you in control without complicated wiring or the added expense of an electrician. Other benefits at your fingertips will be: • Enhanced energy efficiency: You can set your shades to lower when the sun is the hottest or raise them in the winter to let in the solar heat to help manage heating and cooling costs. You can also adjust window covering vanes and slats to harvest light deep into the room to reduce the need for artificial lighting. • Convenience: With the app, any media room takes on a “Hollywoodian” air. Prefer your window dressings positioned a particular way when you’re reading? No problem. Create a personalized “scene” with the app and it will move the window

treatments to the exact position you wish, whenever you wish. It’s simple to program and easy to use. In fact, a single swipe of the app’s slider bars can tilt and raise or lower the product. • Glare control: Having trouble with the glare on your computer screen while finishing that proposal for the office or emails to friends and family? The app gives you total control. • Privacy and security: Many homes these days are built cheek-tojowl, requiring something special to guard one’s privacy and security…and comfort level. The app lets you adjust your window fashions for when you are not at home. Set scenes and raise them during the day, lower them at night, or raise some and lower others to avoid suspicion and help protect your home. • UV protection: We all know the havoc the sun’s ultraviolet rays play on our skin. The same holds true with artwork and furnishings. If exposed to too much sun-

light they can fade, discolour or become otherwise damaged. Obtain the happy medium—sun protection with light and a view—with products such as Silhouette and Pirouette window shadings. The sheer facings protect against UV rays even when the vanes are open. With the app, you can adjust the vanes as the sun becomes brighter and more control is needed. • Difficult-to-reach windows: We all love the look of skylights and oversized windows, but most of us don’t like having to get out the ladders to reach them. Hunter Douglas points to its SkyLift, a new system that covers skylight window openings of up to 80 square feet. The Platinum App works on products with this option as well, for control above and beyond expectations. • Child safety: Motorized treatments are free of operating cords, making them ideal for homes with tots underfoot. Motorization has gone mobile and it’s not going back.

Renovation sometimes a better option to moving With the prices of homes continuing to be on the rise, many Canadians are choosing to renovate rather than move. It’s less expensive than purchasing a new house and the updates can go a long way to modernize your home, provide a

more functional and comfortable space, and to increase the value of your property. When considering renovation possibilities, it is easy to get caught up in the glitz and glamour projects, say advisors. Instead, consider new features that

will increase your home’s level of efficiency, such as: Upgrade your insulation. If you have the opportunity to open your walls up and re-insulate, considering installing stone wool insulation that will ensure your home is warm in the winter

and cool in the summer. Stone wool insulation, such as Roxul’s ComfortBatt, or Safe ‘n’ Sound, is also fire resistant; water repellent; resistant to mold, mildew, rot and bacterial growth; and is made from natural stone and recycled material.

Upgrade your existing appliances. Consider installing energy efficient appliances and replace dated older furnaces. See Option B19
