A whole new dimension in hearing technology

Three members of the local triathlon community have been handed expanded roles for the 2014 edition of Challenge Penticton. The society that operates the race announced Friday it has hired Steve Brown as director of race operations and Kelly Hopkins as manager of marketing and events. “We feel we’re much further ahead than we were last year, we’ve learned a lot, and we’re pretty excited about putting out a bigger and better race,” said Paulette Rennie, who chairs the Steve Brown board of the nonprofit Penticton Triathlon Race Society. The society said in October it elected not to renew the one-year contracts of former general manager Barb Haynes and manager of race operations Laura Carleton because it needed people with more specialized skills. Brown, who owns Peach City Runners, worked on the operations side of the 2013 Challenge Penticton in the transitions area and is also the owner and race director of Ultraman Canada. Hopkins served last year as the Challenge Penticton professional athlete liaison and banquet co-ordinator. Both of the new hires inked one-year deals and could not be reached for comment Thursday. Rennie said the two will be set up to devote their full attention to their respec-

tive areas of expertise. “Kelly will be on the business side of organizing our festivals, organizing our marketing, our sponsorships, helping with the social media piece, so that allows Steve to stay focused on the actual race,” she explained. The society may still consider adding short-term personnel closer to race day on Aug. 24. “If we need someone with a specific talent to help us do something for a specific period of time, then we would do that via contract,” Rennie said. She’s eager to have Hopkins get to work putting together the material necessary to get out and attract registrations and solicit sponsorships upon which the race relies for funding. Rennie declined to reveal either registration numbers for next year’s race or financial information Kelly Hopkins for the society, which she said is not required to report publicly. “No business is out there providing their bank accounts and financial information,” she said. “We’re also trying to build something here, right? And I’m just hoping people start getting around this thing and want it to be successful.” The society board itself also has new blood with the addition of local realtor Peter Byrnes, who completed the inaugural Challenge Penticton and the 2010 Ironman Canada.

Fortis report leaves customers in cold Joe Fries

Western News Staff

FortisBC’s new two-tier electricity rate is working as expected but drawing an undue share of criticism, the company said in a new report that’s already been written off by one opponent. “The group that is negatively affected is far smaller than is reflected by the publicity garnered by the rate,” reads a portion of the report, which examines impacts of the socalled conservation rate and was filed last week with the B.C. Utilities Commission. After receiving 150 customer complaints, the BCUC ordered FortisBC to study the effects of the new rate structure, which was implemented in July 2012 to decrease energy use. Under the new system, which was mandated by the provincial regulator under direction from the B.C. government, the cost of electricity in a two-month billing period was reduced for all consumption under 1,600 kilowatt-hours, but increased for power used above that threshold. “The results show that customers with electric heat and without access to natural gas have higher than average annual consumption which leads to a higher than average impact due to the implementation,” the report concluded. Nick Marty, who lives with his wife near

Keremeos mayor manfred Bauer has helped lead political opposition against FortisBC’s new two-tier electricity rate, which has cost some rural customers dearly.

Osoyoos and is one of many rural FortisBC customers for whom natural gas is not available, instead relies on electricity to run a heat pump.

His power bill for the two months ended mid-April 2012 was $626.79 under the old flat rate. It rose to $757.45 for the same period in 2013 with the new two-tier rate, despite the couple’s usage actually declining by 89 kWh to 5,848. “The impact is seasonal, right? In the middle of winter, I get clobbered,” said Marty, who retired six years ago from the energy policy branch of Natural Resources Canada. “Basically what it is, is a wealth redistribution rate. It’s taking money from rural customers and in effect, recycling it back to city dwellers.” FortisBC’s study assessed the bills of 97,000 residential customers and found that 70 per cent of them are paying less under the conservation rate. It also determined that 8.2 per cent of customers saw an increase of between 10 and 20 per cent on their bills, and 0.4 per cent of ratepayers endured a spike of more than 20 per cent. “The report didn’t bring anything new that we didn’t already know, that people who rely on electric heat only and the ones who don’t have the means to hook up to gas are the worst off,” said Keremeos Mayor Manfred Bauer, who’s been leading political opposition to the conservation rate. He noted, however, that people who are hardest hit, like pensioners, are least able to afford the increase.

Prior to the report’s publication, politicians had called for an adjustment of the rate’s 1,600 kWh threshold, but FortisBC has indicated that’s easier said that done. The problem lies in the BCUC’s requirement that the new rate be revenue neutral, that customer impacts fall within an approved range, and that it result in power conservation. “To move the threshold up would mean we’d have to move one of the rates and that would then mean some customers are going to pay more,” said FortisBC spokesman Neal Pobran. “If there are changes, there’s going to have to be some sort of trade-off between conservation encouragement and customers paying for this change.” It’s unclear what the BCUC will do with the study. “We have received the report and will begin its review in the near term,” Kristine Bienert, the BCUC’s acting director of customer relations, said in a statement. “Until it has been reviewed, I am unable to comment on the commission’s next steps nor the timeline.” All told, the conservation rate has saved between 23 million and 52 million kWh of electricity in its first year, the report estimated. That’s enough to power up to 1,766 average Canadian homes for a year, according to Statistics Canada data.

opal nightclub loses shine as owners leave town Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Penticton’s newest nightclub has shut its doors after just five months in operation. The owners of the Opal, at 535 Main St., gave no sign they were planning to close the club when they appeared before Penticton city council Monday evening, pleading for the city’s support to expand their hours of operation. But a day later the club was closed, and the family who owned it had left town in search of work, according to John Vassilaki, who owns the building. “They just informed me today they will be closing down,” said Vassilaki on Wednesday. “I know they went looking for jobs in Alberta, because they’ve got to live on something. They have obligations to pay bills and one thing and another.” Vassilaki isn’t sure if the closure is permanent. Nor is he aware if the owners were in financial trouble, but did say he isn’t owed any rent. “I don’t know if they are shutting down temporarily or if they are going to open up again in the spring,” he said. “Probably not forever, because they didn’t ask for me to take the licence back.” The Opal was just the latest club to occupy the venue, which has a history stretching back to 1977, when the Tiffany’s discotheque opened and began a 30-year run, before turning into the Element and then Club 535. Vassilaki said times have changed since Penticton supported four night clubs and assorted pubs. “There were four-and-a-half, really. And we all had lineups,” he said. “There just wasn’t enough business this year

for two nightclubs in Penticton. We don’t have enough young people to go around.” Society has changed, Vassilaki continued, as has the way people drink. “Everything has slowed down that has to do with alcohol,” said Vassilaki. The Opal’s application for extended hours was intended to put them on a even playing field with the Mule nightclub, whose licence allows it to operate noon to 3 a.m. Alexander Kin, one of the owners, told council they wanted to be an integral part of the Penticton night life, and that extending the hours would enhance their ability “to provide food and fun in an atmosphere which will include many varieties of performances.” Over the summer, the club offered a variety of entertainment, ranging from live music and comedians to exotic dancers. Kin went on to tell council of their plans to run the Opal as a pub from 4 to 9 p.m., followed by a show until 1 a.m. and dancing until the new closing hour of 3 a.m. They also planned to offer the club as a venue for birthdays, staff parties, wedding receptions and family reunions. “We would like our options to be as open as possible,” said Jane Watson, Kin’s mother and part of the ownership group. “We need to keep our options open in order to remain viable. I think that is an important part of what we are asking for.” Vassilaki isn’t sure if the family is planning to reopen when the province approves the changes to the licence. “It usually takes about a month to two months for that to come through Victoria. We don’t know what is going to happen when they get that licence, how soon they will be open-

ing,” said Vassilaki, noting the owners hadn’t asked to break the lease. “It’s unfortunate that some people can make it and others can’t.” Attempts to contact Watson via phone and email have not been successful.

RCMP suspends Osoyoos officer Kristi Patton

RCMP are being tight-lipped about an Osoyoos constable who is suspended with pay. A former Osoyoos resident, Steve Condon, alleges he was set up to take the fall for two vehicles stolen last year. The rub, he said, is the missing Osoyoos constable, Amit Goyal, owned one of the cars and had the other on loan. No charges have been filed against Goyal, Condon or anyone in relation to the stolen vehicles, according to RCMP. “He accused me of stealing his Audi and a 2008 Ford Ranger,” said Condon of the vehicles which were reported stolen about a week apart. Rumours spread quickly in the small community about Condon. Unable to handle the scrutiny any longer, he left Osoyoos for the Lower Mainland. In January 2013, he said, investigators from Trail flew to the coast to question Condon about the vehicle thefts and interviewed him at his job site after hours. About two months later, he was asked to meet with the investigators again, this time at the Burnaby detachment for three hours. In May, Condon said he passed a polygraph in the Langley detachment. Condon said he told RCMP the person they should be investigating is Goyal. “It was my belief all along that he stole his own cars and he was in a financial bind,” said Condon. Sgt. Mike Wicentowich in Trail said he could not provide a comment on the matter and deferred any questions to RCMP Southeast district spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk, who said he could not comment due to privacy issues. Condon alleges he was harassed by Goyal on several occasions and now he is considering filing a lawsuit against the Osoyoos RCMP detachment. “I haven’t yet, but I will be within the next month. He was an employee of the Osoyoos detachment,”

said Condon. “I’m suing for the damages to me personally, the stress he put me through and that kind of stuff.” Aaron Munro, a resident of Osoyoos and a heavy equipment operator in northern B.C., said he was also considered a suspect. He was contacted by the Fort St. John RCMP earlier this year. “They first wouldn’t tell me what it was about, they just asked me where I was Oct. 30 last year and I proceeded to ask what it was about because I knew where I was,” said Munro. “About four or five days later I got another call from an officer and he told me I was a suspect in two vehicle thefts and he wouldn’t tell me whose vehicles they were.” Munro contacted his lawyer and never bothered to speak with the RCMP again because he knew he did nothing wrong and the RCMP have not contacted him since. “I heard a rumour it was Amit Goyal’s car. In a small town word gets around pretty quick,” said Munro. RCMP E Division spokesperson Sgt. Rob Vermeulen told the Penticton Western News on Oct. 2 via email that Goyal was suspended with pay, but would not say why. “If there was a criminal charge, we would proactively release that information,” said Vermeulen. Corroborating Goyal’s absence from the detachment is an RCMP document obtained by the Western News which states all disputes regarding tickets issued by Goyal are not to be processed. “Futhermore, any new ticket disputes that come into your office for this member please do not process them and cancel the ticket as he will not be available to attend court,” said the document, which is signed by the officer in charge of the Osoyoos detachment, Sgt. Kevin Schur. Attempts to contact Goyal for comment were unsuccessful.

Maggie students remember Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Veterans’ Memorial Park in Penticton is going to see a bigger crowd for a Remembrance Day ceremony today than it has in a few years. The park will be filled with students from Princess Margaret Secondary, for the school’s own Remembrance Day, in advance of the official service on Nov. 11, which was moved indoors to the Trade and Convention Centre several years ago. The location was chosen by students, who also planned the ceremony. “We wanted to get going on it earlier this year so we could make it better,” said McKenzie Ricard adding that instructor Don Grant helped a lot, suggesting they continue taking it to an out of school location, as they did last year, when the Maggie assembly was held on the beach. They went through a number of possibilities and settled on a most traditional spot, the cenotaph in Veterans’ Park. The cenotaph, with its lists of names of the fallen, will highlight the importance of why they are assembled, said Joravar (Joe) Gill, another of the organizers. A member of the cadets, Gill said he often reads about the sacrifices soldiers have made in wartime and

Leadership student McKenzie ricard pins a poppy on Joraver Gill. Both princess Margaret students helped organize the school’s remembrance day ceremony, which will be held in Veterans’ Memorial park today.

steve Kidd/Western news

wanted to help other people remember. The traditions of a Remembrance Day ceremony are included, like the prayers and minute of silence, but the students are also incorporating music and stories, drawn from histories stored at the Penticton Museum, which they researched with the help of curator Peter Ord. “It makes it hit home more that they were people just like us that went away,” said Ricard. One story involved Sid Kenyon, who made a sweater out of spare socks while in a POW camp during the First World War. Once the sweater was finished, Gill said, Kenyon used it as a disguise to escape. That sweater is on display at the museum, which is also where Gill found letters soldiers wrote

home from the First World War. The letters he said, didn’t deal much with the war. Not only were they censored, but the men in the trenches seemed to want to talk more about home. “The impression I got was it was a hard life, but they tried to keep everything on the positive side and just tell the family back home, I am fine, everything is going well. They didn’t really talk about the war itself all that much,” said Gill. “They never really got on the topic unless it was about someone who had fallen.” There were other stories. Some about the great battle, Vimy Ridge, and others about people who weren’t soldiers, like Edith Hancock, a Penticton woman who served as

a “Bluebird,” as the soldiers nicknamed Canada’s military nurses on account of their blue dresses and white aprons. “When she came back, she started the Penticton Regional Hospital. She started the hospital here, if we hadn’t had her, we might not have had the hospital,” said Ricard. There will be many other stories, woven together with music, which Ricard hopes will share their realization these soldiers are very real people, not just names on a cenotaph. Grant said the public is encouraged, to come join the school ceremony, which begins shortly after 9 a.m. “I think a lot of people will be pleasantly surprised to see the quality of work these guys are doing,” said Grant.

EDITORIAL

opinion

Lest we forget Canada is an amazing place to live. Sure we have our problems, but our problems are of our own making. If you look around the world, our problems are the envy of millions of people who wish they had access to healthcare, education, free speech and the right to vote, never mind the quality of life many of us enjoy. These rights, and similar rights shared by the citizens of other countries did not come without a price. In the First World War, 67,000 Canadians lost their lives and 173,000 came home wounded. Monday, Nov. 11, marks the 95th anniversary of the end of the First World War. In the Second World War, more than one million Canadians served in the armed forces and more than 45,000 lost their lives. The Korean and Afghan wars have added at least another 650 to the number of Canadians who gave their lives in the defence of simple but important freedoms. In Penticton, the Remembrance Day cerPENTICTON WESTERN emony is held at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre and begins at 10 a.m. Attending Monday’s ceremony is the least we can do to honour those who served and those who continue to serve, as well as to remind ourselves just how fortunate we are. Lest we forget.

Georgia’s Ivanishvili: Just Another Messiah “My work here is done,” said the masked man, as he mounted his horse and rode away. But he didn’t go very far away. Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili of Georgia doesn’t actually wear a mask, but he is mysterious enough without one. It’s never been quite clear how he got so rich — his fortune is estimated at $6.4 billion, about a third of the entire country’s annual GDP — but the real puzzle is his motives and goals. Why did he bother to become prime minister at all if he was planning to quit after only one year? He returned home only 10 years ago, after 20 years in Moscow. He built a huge and spectacular mansion in the hills above Tbilisi, the capital, and began doing good by stealth. The small Transcaucasian republic was near economic collapse at the time, and he quietly subsidized beloved Georgian artists and actors who could not make ends meet. At one point Ivanishvili even paid

the salaries of state employees when the government could not, and it has recently emerged that he paid for the massive new cathedral that now adorns the city centre. He clearly disliked the country’s president, Mikheil Saakashvili, but he shunned politics Gwynne Dyer and mostly stayed out Dyer Straits of sight on his secluded estate like a James Bond villain, stroking his was installed in the tame zebras in lieu of presidency. the statutory evil cat.

The last messiah was On Monday his Mikheil Saakashvili, candidate, Giorgi who launched the Margvelashvili, non-violent “Rose replaced Saakashvili Revolution” and as president and his restored democracy to triumph was complete.

But So now he is going to Saakashvili also started quit. and lost a war against Two months ago Russia over breakaway Ivanishvili announced South Ossetia in 2008. that he would retire The Georgian as prime minister as economy more than soon as Margvelashvili doubled in size during

his decade in power, but at least a quarter of the population lives in extreme poverty and unemployment remains above 15 per cent. When people protested about his policies, they were met with violence and repression — so when Ivanishvili gave them a plausible alternative, they flocked to his banner. Ivanishvili has never offered a coherent plan for Georgia or even very distinctive policies; Georgians appear to have chosen him as the next messiah simply because he has a lot of money and seems to be generous with it. And it doesn’t bother them where it comes from. Never mind all that. Ivanishvili is the only Georgian billionaire, and his wealth and wisdom will save us all. In Monday’s election, his presidential candidate got 62 per cent of the vote, compared to only 22 per cent for the candidate chosen by the last messiah. (Saakashvili could not run for president again himself,

having served two full terms.) Ivanishvili’s decision to retire from high political office himself is less quixotic than it seems. He’s not actually relinquishing power: with loyal placemen in both the presidency and the prime minister’s office – president-elect Giorgi Margvelashvili said that he would always listen to his “authoritative friend” — he can continue to dominate affairs without having to take any personal responsibility if things go wrong. Money doesn’t talk; it gives commands. And it doesn’t really do democracy, either: Ivanishvili’s government has already begun arresting Saakashvili’s former ministers on various charges, and the exmessiah himself can probably expect the same treatment once he leaves the presidency. Salvation for Georgia is still not at hand. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose column is published in 45 countries.

Let the cull begin

Personally I would like to participate in a cull on our lands located inside and outside of city limits. Council could authorize a cull on properties above the Fortis power line and on our property outside of city limits on the south east corner of the city. Time for city council members to step forward and present their intentions of whether or not they will support a deer cull within city limits. With the B.C. Supreme Court decision, no longer can council hide from making a decision on the deer situation. The citizens will need to have council Members declare how they will vote on this matter prior to the next election. The press could canvas the current council as to whether or not they are happy with the above B.C. Supreme Court decision. Force a decision from council members one way or the other. The courts came down with the proper decision in my opinion and now it is up to the councils in the province to stand up and be counted. The voters will have the ability to force council members to move on to greener pastures, if the deer cull question is placed on a ballot in the next election. Ted Wiltse Penticton

Naysayers should be silenced

The Los Angeles Times recently instituted a policy change: they no longer print letters to the editor from climate change deniers. The L.A. Times believes that peer-reviewed work by established scientists have overwhelmingly proven that our planet is warming and this is leading to significant climate change. Those scientists have provided ample evidence that human activity is linked to climate change. Just last month, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body made up of the world’s top climate scientists, said it was 95 per cent certain we fossilfuel-burning humans are driving global warming. The debate right now isn’t whether evidence exists, but what the evidence means for us. I think the Penticton Herald and Penticton Western News should follow suite. Frank Martens Summerland

Dartmouth bike lane not needed

It would seem that city hall may be evoking a closed ear policy, as far as this bike lane project is concerned. They seem to be turning a blind eye to the possibilities of incident or accident if the bike lane goes in. I suspect now that fall is here crews may be scrambling for work. Hence, a make work project, possibly? Let’s look at the real picture. I use the Dartmouth corridor about two to three times per day. In the last three months, I saw 12 cyclists on that hill as I used the corridor through the day and into the evening. One day, I parked near the SPCA for 20 minutes and 36 vehicles passed either up or down and not one bike. Did the city do a bidirectional traffic count? I suspect not, as nothing was made public. I did the same park and observe about three days later and counted 31 vehicles and again, no bikes. The following Saturday, I counted 27 cars and still no bikes. Each of these days, I did the observation stop at different times from early morning; through mid-afternoon to around 4:30 p.m. Each time no bike traffic, yet, the bike lane is justifiable? What studies were done? The residents of the area have a right to know as they were subsequently told it was going to happen. I guess the real question is what justifies the need for this bike lane? Couldn’t the human resources and taxpayer’s money be put to a more needed and justifiable use? Wake up and smell the coffee, city pundits, taxpayers deserve a better bang for our tax dollars!

Hydro rate battle begins

There is growing opposition to the proposed rate increase that Fortis has put forward for approval and this time it is not only the public, but businesses as well. Alcoa in Quebec is threatening to close its smelters because of the high hydro rates, and they are not alone. Here in B.C. companies such as Mercer International, that owns the Celgar pulp mill in Castlegar, is looking very carefully at the proposed Fortis increase, and if they were to close this operation down because of higher electrical rates, this would wreak havoc on this Kootenay community. If Celgar is worried, just think of how the smaller businesses that are currently operating on a tight budget in Fortis controlled regions must feel. There is a plan in the works that hopefully will put an end to Fortis’ greed, but I have been informed that this plan will not come into effect until the middle of November. So folks, do not think that you are alone in opposing any further increases in your hydro bill; this time there are some very powerful people on your team. This letter is only the opening round in a battle with a very greedy corporation. Read your local newspapers and be prepared to join in this fight against a very dangerous economic opponent.

It was interesting to read Garry Litke’s comment in the paper, which stated, “The number of complaints about deer has really dropped off in the last little while.” I am sorry to break the news to you Gary, the deer haven’t gone away we just quit calling. I called the number at city hall and left a message. In the message I asked if I was to call each time I saw a deer in my yard, or each time a deer threatened my dogs and I or if one call was enough. Funny I never heard back from anyone, so I quit calling but the deer have not left. Just the other day I went to walk my dogs and there were three deer in my front yard. They refused to leave and when I tried to scare them off they charged at us. We couldn’t go for a walk over my lunch hour that day. I even erected a new fence around my back yard to keep them out but that hasn’t stopped them from jumping in. I am not sure how other’s are feeling but the attitude that no news is good news just doesn’t fly.

We want to hear from you

Architects gaining ground Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Local firm Allen + Maurer Architects is gaining recognition for innovative buildings around the Thompson Okanagan, with three of its projects receiving major awards. Top of the list is the Penticton Indian Band, who recently received a department G award from the Canadian Homebuilders Association of B.C., celebrating innovative housing. The band has an acute housing shortage, and when an opportunity came up to build eight new homes under a provincial government program for energy efficient houses, they contracted Allen + Maurer to design the homes. “It was really spearheaded by Tabitha Eneas (the band’s housing manager),” said architect Chris Allen, explaining the band had tried to fill their housing needs with modular homes and other low-cost solutions, but were finding these solutions were costly to heat. “We had to change the way we were building and change the mentality that a house has to be built a certain way, especially on reserve where we don’t get much of a choice,” says Eneas. “We really wanted to focus on reducing energy and using traditional concepts in a modern way.” Six of the homes have an Energuide rating of 88, one is pursuing a LEED Platinum rating, and one is a certified passive house. Maurer notes the homes had to meet the Energuide 88 standard to qualify for the fund-

www.ranchovignola.com

ing program, which was a partnership between the band, B.C. Ministry of Energy, Solar B.C., Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. “It’s pretty high. It’s about as energy efficient as a house gets,” said Allen. “They really wanted to do something that was more energy efficient, more durable and more pleasant for the residents to live in. That’s what we tried to design.” Energy efficient designs, Allen said, are a world-wide paradigm shift in how buildings are construction, incorporating many traditional ideas. “It doesn’t make sense to spend money on energy you don’t need,” he said, explaining that for the PIB project, that meant orienting the buildings to the south and allowing the sun to warm the building, allowing the natural breezes to ventilate it rather than a lot of mechanical equipment. The project also won a Fortis Award for Conservation Leadership Award in 2012, for outstanding leadership in innovative and energy efficient projects. “FortisBC was a huge help in learning how to reduce energy in the beginning and throughout the project, offering advice, solutions, team members and funding,” said Eneas. Recognition for Allen + Maurer doesn’t stop there. The firm also won two prestigious Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia Awards in Architec-

ture, an honour given to just 13 of the province’s top buildings, and the only firm to win for projects in the B.C. Interior. Askew’s Uptown, a grocery store in Salmon Arm, won a Jury Select prize. This store was recognized for providing an alternative design to a neglected building type. Rather than the typical grocery store separated from the street by a parking lot, the Askew’s design sets the store on the street, with the parking lot behind. “It was meant to be a more progressive piece of the urban fabric,” said Allen, adding that another key feature is the wood roof design. “We wanted to design something that was appropriate for Salmon Arm. Forestry is a big industry there. Sustainable design, Allen said, also means sustaining the local economy. “We designed a 32,000 square foot roof and we designed it so it could be built out of dimensional lumber from Salmon Arm. We sourced that from five local mills.” Allen + Maurer received a second Jury Select prize for a Naramata home. The central glass building is airy and open, a second is nearly invisible under a grass roof while the garage is completely buried in the rise. “This house is an homage to modernist glass houses from the early 20th century,” said Florian Maurer. “The difference is that now, with new technology, we can make this house type beautiful, energy efficient, and functional.”

Flexible Fun with FitKidz Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Twice a week, FitKidz Gymnastics on Ellis Street opens its doors to teens of any athletic skill level. Last Monday, five attende a drop-in class with instructor Katelyn Luscombe. The group, which has been as large as 20, likes that the sessions offer them flexibility to improve without the pressure of visiting every Monday and Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Katelin Coombes was part of the small group and loves that she has more time to do things. The former FitKidz competitive gymnast is playing volleyball and, later this year, will try out for basketball. Coombes competed in gymnastics for four years. Last season, her final year of competition, she was among a group who claimed a top-10 spot in provincials. The 12-year-old loves the classes because they are not too long and she can still be part of the sport she loves without being competitive. While working with Luscombe, she has noticed improvement in her flexibility and has picked up some new tricks. What does she enjoy most about the drop-in classes? “That we really get to do what we want,” s a i d Coombes, who hasn’t missed a class. Mackenzie Thacker, 13, is another former Fitkidz competitor. During her five years of competing she entered two events but doesn’t want to compete anymore. “I just don’t really like competitions,” said Thacker. Thacker also attends both sessions. “Instruction is good,” she said. “They teach you what you want to learn. They help you with whatever you want to improve on.” Thackers has also enjoyed being around the other members as she has learned from them. “You can see what they are doing and try and accomplish what they have been learning,” she said. “Push yourself to learn those things.” The group works in a large area, and with only five on that day, there was plenty of play space. Luscombe said the sessions are intended for beginners to experi-

enced athletes.The classes started in September and continue until June. She feels they have gone well and likes the turnout they receive. “Last year we started with about three athletes. This year we are rotating through about 20,” she said. What Luscombe likes about the teen drop-in classes is they can accommodate a variety of skills. Along with returning athletes, they have some who have just started out. One is Cameron Foster of Okanagan Falls. He took up the sport last year. “It’s one of those sports where you get a really good workout,” said Foster, 15, who has played hockey, tennis and golf. Luscombe’s instruction has been motivational for Foster, who has enjoyed working with her. In the time she has assisted him, Foster feels more mobile and flexible. “I had a bit of a problem with my hip and I have noticed it’s really helped,” he said. “I definitely feel a lot stronger and healthier.” Luscombe enjoys instructing her students because of their character and said “they are great kids.” She is also pushed by them. “I need to come up with different challenges for each individual,” she said. Annette Card, the head coach and general manager of FitKidz Gymnastics, likes the classes because they keeps kids involved in sports, which she feels is important. “A lot of kids drop out of organized sports by the time they are 12 or 13 years old,” she said. To her, it also enables them to socialize with friends and it has been a success with the numbers they attract. “It’s definitely a great place,” said Foster. “I definitely recommend it.” GYMNASTS AT FITKIDZ GYMNASTICS enjoy the freedom of coming to the drop-in classes when they want as it allows some to get involved with other sports or do other things. The gymnasts, like Mackenzie Thacker, left, receive quality instruction from Katelyn Luscombe. On the right, Katelin Coombes works on a forward flip. Emanuel Sequeira/Western News

Laker driven to improve

250.490.3050 www.woudasbakery.com

Kaylie Loewen of the Pen High Lakers senior girls volleyball team is always striving to improve. A year ago she changed the way she served. Loewen uses her right arm to set the ball in motion as she swings it up, shortly after being airborne, she smacks it at the opposition hoping to find a hole or force them to knock it out of play. Loewen began mastering the style during beach volleyball after always float serving. “Serving is the key point of the game. I want to make my serve one of the toughest in the province,” said Loewen following a win against city rival Princess Margaret Mustangs during the Lakers’ Halloween tournament. Her coach, Rob Gunning, said that Loewen sets lofty goals for herself, which she works hard to achieve. Her focus right now is working on her passing and serving. Loewen is happy with her play this season and she’s confident once provincials arrive in late November, the Lakers will be looking good. “I think we’re coming in very strong,”

I want to make my serve one of the toughest in the province. — Kaylie Loewen

KAYLIE LOEWEN is a threat for the Pen High Lakers and is determined to continue improving so she can do the same for Gonzaga University next fall. Mark Brett/Western News

said Loewen. While Loewen is determined to get better to help the Lakers, there is also

her future to think about. Loewen will be signing her national letter of intent in the coming weeks to

play for the Gonzaga University Bulldogs in Washington State next fall. Loewen said secur-

ing her future in college volleyball was a long process. She was nervous as she wanted to play in the National Collegiate Athletic Association and had a couple of schools interested in her. “Gonzaga offered and I went to a couple different schools before, and I went there, it just felt like home,” she said of the campus located in Spokane. “It’s pretty amazing. It’s nice to see all the hard work I’ve put in is now paying off.” Gunning said for Loewen to get to where she wants, she needs to continue to work on being a little more aggressive on offence and raise her level of consistency. “She likes to challenge herself, and I am sure she will do the work necessary to raise her game to the next level, both this year and in the future,” he said.

Penticton’s Nate Speijer has been named a Canada West second star for his play Nov. 2 to 3. Speijer, a Pen High grad, plays for the UBC Okanagan Heat men’s volleyball team and helped them notch their first win of the 2013-14 season on Nov. 3. After losing to the Mount Royal Cougars in five sets Saturday, the Heat rallied for a 3-0 win the following day in Kelowna. Speijer had a strong outing in the five-set loss, which was nearly a spectacular comeback after dropping the opening two sets 2515, 25-9. He tallied 25 kills, 11 digs and 26.5 points, but it was not enough to push his team to victory. On Sunday, with the

Cougar defence keyed on Speijer from the opening serve, trying everything to stop the Heat’s top offensive player, he was still able Nate Speijer to generate 23 points on offence. He had 20 kills at a 35 per cent rate with 11 digs and two service aces to complete the impressive stat line. Speijer is tops in the nation in kills per set (5.87), points per set (6.3) and third in total kills with 88, even with 10 less sets played compared to total kills leader Ray Szeto from York University.

third-place team in Memorial Arena. McLaughlin said it will be important for his team to have a strong work ethic and discipline in every game. “I have not seen a lot of the teams that will be attending our tournament this weekend, but I’m sure each team attending will be strong and competitive,” he said. “I’m sure each team attending this will have high expectations of their own team play.” The Vees lead their division in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association with a 6-0 record. They have scored 37 goals, while allowing seven. “I feel our strengths as a team are our work ethic, physical play, and compete (level),” said McLaughlin. “We have a great group of young men on our team that have made goals they want to reach and I believe this team can reach those goals.”

Bar Down with Ben Dalpe Sports editor’s note: Throughout the season, Ben Dalpe, brother of former Penticton Vee Zac Dalpe, will write a column for the Western News giving readers insight into his life on the ice and away from the rink. This week I would like to talk about our road trip this weekend. After having last weekend off, all the boys are fired up to head out on a four-day trip. The three games we play this weekend are crucial to our position in the standings.

DANDRUFF, THICK AND ROUGH SKIN, AND PSORIASIS Extremely dry, rough or peeling skin can be the consequence of dehydrated skin, hereditary factors, medical treatments or conditions, repeated sun exposure or one of many other causes. No matter what the cause, proper exfoliation and hydration are essential to maintaining healthy skin. Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique has several products to help treat the scaling, redness and itching associated with thick and rough skin, psoriasis and dandruff. Those who suffer from psoriasis may benefit from Kertyol P.S.O. treatment cream. The formula contains sulphur and glycolic acid that work together to reduce patch thickness and eliminate flakiness, Kertyol to reduce redness and itching, and glycerin to soften and moisturize the upper layers of the skin. This product can be applied on the skin patches twice daily, either left on or rinsed off after 20

minutes. It can also be applied to the scalp at night and washed out in the morning. Kertyol P.S.O. is also available as an antidandruff treatment shampoo. Several severe forms of dandruff can be the result of dead skin cells sticking to the scalp due to an abnormally high rate of skin renewal. Twice weekly use can result in the reduction of scaly patches and flakes as well as reduce itching and redness. Those with sensitive skin may prefer a product called Akerat. It is rich in Avene Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften skin, and combines urea, lactic acid and salicylic acid to remove thick flakes and minimize rough and hardened skin. Akerat is recommended for very dry, thick and rough skin, stubborn and recurrent calluses on pressure points, and for psoriasis - either alone or in combination with medical treatments.

Currently, we are only two points behind division-leading West Kelowna, but we also have two games in hand. With some big wins, we can slip into first. We start bright and early Thursday. Wake up will be around 5:30 a.m., as we have to be at the South Okanagan Events Centre for 6 a.m. With bus departing around 6:30 a.m., we will have breakfast provided for us. Thursday is a travel day, so this will be a long day with two ferry rides. This will be my first ocean ferry ride so fingers crossed I will get to see my first whale. After a long day we are expected to arrive in Powell River around 5 p.m. Friday will be game day. We will have a morning skate at 10 a.m., and then go over some video on our opponent, the Powell River Kings. Friday’s game is a huge test as the Kings have the best record in the BCHL. Saturday we travel to Nanaimo to face the Clippers. They currently sit third in the Island Division. Saturday’s game will be cool for me to skate in the same rink my brother won the Fred Page Cup back in 2008 with the Vees. Also to play against

Competing in slippery and cold conditions, the Pen High Lakers cross-country team capped the season with positive results across the finish line during the B.C. high school provincials in Aldergrove Nov. 2. Lakers coach Geoff Waterman said the girls team Cael Warner performed well as they earned a 16th-place finish in a field of 26 teams. “We were led by Meg Cumming and Emily Clarke, who finished 49th and 81st, respectively,” said Waterman. On the boys side, Josh Holland ran in the inaugural junior boys race and placed 37th, 30 seconds out of 20th place. “Our senior boys Cael Warner and Luke Grandbois placed an amazing 15th and 51st place, respectively,” said Waterman. “Cael was the standout of the weekend and season, he has worked very hard and is looking to attend university next year and compete in cross country.” The Lakers sent seven girls and three boys to the provincial championship.

Penticton woman becomes face of Bootlegger Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

A Penticton woman had the opportunity of a lifetime to be pampered like a fashion model. In February, Amberlee Erdmann found out she won the Internet competition Be The Face of Bootlegger. She recently was swept to Vancouver to get in front of the camera lens and now her photos can be seen not only in the Penticton Bootlegger, but in their retail stores across the country. “It is totally empowering and I get that some aspects are superficial with modelling, but honestly it made me feel so confident and beautiful,” said Erdmann, who is a social worker. “When I look at those images, I can’t believe that is me. I still can’t believe I won and did it.” Canadian fashion retailer Boot-

AMBerlee erdMANN’s photos can now be seen in Bootlegger retail outlets across the country.

submitted Photo

legger put out a model search call that Erdmann came across on Facebook. She had some local ex-

perience with modelling but was unsure if she wanted to enter. “All those self-defeating thoughts go through your head of what if you lose, then I submitted the photo a few hours before the deadline and ended up winning. It’s funny because now I go into the Bootlegger stores and they recognize me,” said Erdmann. In September she flew down to Vancouver for her photo shoot and said she was given first-class treatment being “spoiled” with everything she could need. Erdmann was taken to Guilford Mall, where the newest Bootlegger store had just opened, and spent $600 of her $1,000 Bootlegger gift card that she won. “I felt a bit guilty, actually. I had a hard time spending that because I don’t make a lot of money and that was a lot to spend on clothes,” said Erdmann. “I felt so spoiled and

special. I got pampered, picked up from the airport and driven to this beautiful hotel with all the accommodations paid for, a welcome gift basket and met all these amazing people.” Wanting the photo shoot to be distinctively Erdmann, Bootlegger let her pick out all of the looks that they would take photos of her for the holiday special feature with the assistance of a stylist. Erdmann describes her style as casual, comfy and when she does go out she likes a look with a lot of impact. “They really wanted to stress that these are clothes that I would normally wear and took my influence into consideration. There was a lot of sweaters, which was kind of ironic because it was basically still summer weather out during the shoot and it was this beautiful day and we are all in winter jack-

ets,” she said. Erdmann was put in a dress with a ostrich feather skirt that she said she loves, and sweaters, shirts and pants for her other looks that she said fit her casual style to a T. She added the support she received while at the shoot from the photographers and hair and makeup artists helped her get over any nerves. The model contest winner added she wanted to thank everyone who helped her get there. “Most of all, I just want to thank all my friends, family and everyone in Penticton for their continuous support because without their involvement and votes I would have never been able to have this experience. I am really grateful,” she said. To view Erdmann’s Bootlegger look book with her fashion photos visit www.Bootlegger.com/content/lookbook.

Giller announced In the literary world, autumn is Scotia Bank Giller Prize season. This year, before the short-list was even announced, many thought that Joseph Boyden’s novel The Orenda — the story of Jesuit priests descending upon the Huron settlements in the 17th Century — would take home the prize. However, despite being long listed for the Giller, and consistently topping bestseller lists since its publication, The Orenda didn’t even make it onto this year’s short-list. Some speculate that Boyden was left out because his second novel Through Black Spruce won the Giller in 2008. I think it’s more likely that the jury found The Orenda overloaded with graphic violence. All told, about 100 pages of the book describe Iroquois and Huron torture methods such as burning, flaying and even eating severed tongues and fingers in front of victims. There’s no doubt Boyden tells an important Canadian story, exploring the effects of universal suffering on the human spirit – known to the Huron as the Orenda. What we would now call post-traumatic stress disorder seems to have affected almost all of the Iroquois, Hurons and Jesuit priests in this time of open warfare, disease and dismantling of a people’s culture and religion. Cataract City by Craig Davidson was another novel expected by many to be a Giller winner. Set in modern day Ontario, it highlights the results of oppression started in The Orenda. In Cataract City, an entire town has its spirits slowly crushed by the harsh reality of working bluecollar jobs in a town polluted by factories, and rife with racism, illegal fight clubs and smuggling operations.

Complete Christmas Dinner for $2.00

Heather Allen Armchair Book Club

Davidson is known for his macho stories: Cataract City begins with his main character serving his last day in prison for killing a man, and features plenty of beat up, bruised and bloodied bodies. So much so, that while I appreciated this finelywritten story as much as I did The Orenda, I wished the novel’s final bell had rung a bit earlier. Just this week, Lynn Coady’s short story collection Hellgoing was announced as the winner of this year’s Giller. Its wide-ranging and attention-grabbing stories are a far cry from the violence-laden tales of The Orenda and Cataract City, which may be just the reason it took home the grand prize.

Naramata Community Choir hosts special concert with quartet

Western News Staff

The Naramata Community Choir is presenting a joint concert with the Concertante Chamber Players this Saturday with the theme of remembrance. The concert entitled In Memoriam will feature some classical and ethereal musical offerings, including works by Mozart, Chopin, Dvorak, Shostakovich, Goldberg, Glibbery and more. “We are so looking forward to singing with this very talented string quartet,” said Justin Glibbery, artistic

director, who has created a musical arrangement of In Flander’s Fields. The Naramata Community Choir is in its 52nd season this year, and while they had been joined for many years by winemaker and symphonist Alex Nichol as an individual guest bassist for special concerts, they’ve never been joined by a string quartet. “We hope the audience will be as moved listening to them as we are performing them,” said Glibbery. The Concertante Chamber Players have performed together throughout

the Okanagan, including for the 100th anniversary of Manning Park in 2012. The quartet will join with the choir during the second half of the concert, for two beautiful pieces, including one penned by local composer Stu Goldberg. Concertante is particularly looking forward to presenting a striking five-movement work by Dmitri Shostakovich, which was dedicated by the composer to victims of fascism and war. Glibbery notes “some of the melodies in these pieces positively weep with beauty.”

Tickets are $15 and available at the Dragon’s Den, the Penticton United Church office (open to 1 p.m. daily), the Naramata Store, and from Naramata choir members. Limited quantities will be available at the door. The performance is this Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m., at the Penticton United Church and it is general seating. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. In their last sell-out concert in June, the Naramata Community Choir had to turn away some people at the door, so get your tickets in advance if you are able.

Service impacts families at home and abroad Mark Brett

Western News Staff

For Major Michael Lemire, a career military officer, there really is no place like home. His parents, Joe and Sharon Lemire of Penticton couldn’t agree more. They also know that waiting can be the hardest part for military families especially those deployed to combat zones. Michael, 51, has spent much of his armed forces career overseas, including postings in war-torn Bosnia and Afghanistan. “I would think at times, what if? What if that knock came on your door?” said Sharon. “The bad stuff that went on he kept from us but we knew, it was something that never really left your mind. “We would count down the months first, then the weeks and then the days until he came back. “I can tell you those homecomings were pretty special times.” Remembrance Day also has greater significance for the Lemires. “When Michael was away it really did seem to make Remembrance Day extra special, it really brought home the sacrifices and the things a lot of men and women went through,” said Sharon. Michael recently returned to Canada from a three-year military exchange program at the Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. He is currently in charge of the military police wing at Canadian

Forces Base Esquimalt. Michael agreed with his mother about the importance of Nov. 11. “I think back to when I first flew into Kandahar and within that week there were five Canadians who were killed and we had the ceremony on the ramp where they brought in the coffins, the padre spoke and they did the salute and they were loaded on the Canadian Herc (Hercules aircraft) and it flew away,” recalled Michael. “Those individuals, they gave all they had

an hopefully when we leave here people don’t forget that. “For me it’s just remembering all the soldiers and airmen and sailors but I also think when I’m there (on parade) about all the families of people who left and didn’t come back. Military life can be difficult on families.” While he loves his job, Michael, who has a son and daughter, admitted it was difficult to see how mothers and fathers struggled to provide the necessities of life. As part of their work

in Afghanistan he and other Canadian soldiers would help where they could by delivering donated items to those in need. “You would pull up to this small clay or dirt building or hut and the father would come out and the children and the only clothes they had were the ones that they were wearing,” said Michael. “All they’re trying to do is just to make it through the week. “It was a good feeling seeing the smiles on the faces of the children but also seeing

the smiles on the faces of the parents when they realize they’ve got food for a few days or the kids have shoes or boots to wear through the winter.” As the person responsible for the security of the Kandahar base Michael found that kindness and understanding were often more effective than brute force. But there were also the days when he was worried for his own safety and that of his team. “We came under fire numerous times and there were certain situations when it could have gone either way,” said Michael. “It’s incredible when you go to places like Afghanistan you recognize that this (Canada) is not a bad place to live. It’s nice to come back home.”

The Bra Lady

Is Coming to Size You Up

Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Chapman is coming to PENTICTON ON FRIDAY NOV. 22ND to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly. “Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.”

Mark Brett/Western News

Remembering a famous uncle

Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your “everyday” bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

Julia Trefry with husband Dick, holds a photograph of her uncle roy Brown who is believed by many to have shot down Manfred von richthofen who is better known as the red Baron.

In the First World War Manfred von Richthofen was the scourge of the sky and the terror on your tail in a dog fight. Although the demise of the Red Baron on April 21,1918 over France is somewhat controversial there is definitely a Penticton connection. Julia Trefry is the niece of Canadian Capt. Roy Brown who is believed by many to have fired the bullet which struck Richthofen forcing him to land and eventually claiming his life. While she knew that both Roy and his brother Horace were in the war she didn’t learn about Roy’s claim to fame until later in life. “I found out that he shot down Baron von Richthofen and uncle Roy had about

12 victories and I think the Baron had 82 victories,” said Julia, who now lives in Penticton with her husband Dick. “Unfortunately I never did get a chance to meet him but they’ve got a new monument for him in Carleton Place (Ontario) where he was born. “It really is exciting and wonderful and somehow I feel important, but I’m not the important one, but it makes me feel good.” Julia always gets a kick from people’s reactions when she tells them it was her uncle who ended the Red Baron’s path of destruction. Her father Howard, who died several years ago at the age of 97, wrote a book about his brother and described him as athletic although Roy never spoke much about his military career even in his letters home during the fighting. Brown died in 1944 at the age of 50. His

niece is not sure what caused his death but believes it likely had to do with the many injuries he suffered during the war. “He got hurt quite badly during those years,” said Trefry. Historic reports indicate Richthofen was pursuing another young Canadian pilot in a Sopwith Camel at a low altitude when Brown intervened. Brown reportedly did a steep dive towards the two aircraft, firing at the Baron repeatedly before having to pull up sharply to avoid hitting the ground. Trefry has attended Remembrance Day services since she was a child and still goes as often as she can with her husband. “It’s important for people to attend the services so they can remember things like what my uncle Roy did and so they never forget the people in the war, that they gave their lives for us,” she said.

STOP HAIR LOSS Heartburn Reflux Dr. C. Hammoud, Ph.D. recommends:

THE BETTER WAY TO CLEAN YOUR CARPET

Happiness for couples is a satisfying sex life.

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

We should eat more alkaline food. We all know that swimming pools can only work if they are acidic/alkaline neutral. This is still more critical for our body. Basic information to have an alkaline body: USDA now recommended on their website. MY plate.gov 50% should be alkaline food (vegetables, salads, legumes, fruit, berries, mushrooms) 50% can be acidic food (Meat, fish, shellfish, eggs, rice, nuts, cheese. Less or no bread, noodles, cereals, cakes. No sweets, deep frieds.) Most North American diet is 90% acidic food. If you have trouble to achieve at least a 50% in alkaline food and 50% acidic food, consider to take a supplement like Bell Acidic #39 Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive and comes with a guarantee. It helps to have a healthy alkaline balanced body and prevents many discomforts, including indigestion and stomach acid reflux coming up, which a majority of people suffer with. 60 million in North America. We should not ignore that Dr. Otto Warburg M.D. was awarded 2 Nobel Prizes for proving that an alkaline balanced body can absorb up to 20 times more oxygen than an acidic body. Makes our immune system more effective to fight disease-producing bacteria including cancer cells we have in our body every day of our life. < Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC < Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief with noside effects and no antacids needed anymore. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA < Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antacid products. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL
