CLOSE-UP

Finding hockey careers in Europe

Warren Henderson

STAFF REPORTER

I

n the spring of 2010, while playing with the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat, Tyler Spurgeon took a vicious elbow to the head during a playoff game against the Hamilton Bulldogs. The former Kelowna Rockets’ captain suffered multiple injuries to the left side of his face, including a broken cheek bone, broken orbital (eye) bone and a collapsed sinus canal. After major reconstructive plastic surgery, Spurgeon needed several months to fully heal from the ordeal. Though he may not have known it at the time, the injury would represent a significant change of direction in the Edmonton native’s hockey career. Spurgeon, who was drafted by his hometown Oilers in the eighth-round

of 2004 draft had, like many of his contemporaries, long dreamed of playing in the National Hockey League. But after four seasons grinding away in the minors, the 5-foot-10 centre didn’t feel like he had moved a whole lot closer to realizing his long-anticipated breakthrough. Besides, with a demanding schedule and physical nature of the minor pro game in North America, the wear and tear on Spurgeon’s body and mind was beginning to outweigh both the personal and monet ary rewards. Open to exploring other options, Spurgeon accepted an offer to skate and train for a month in the summer of 2010 with the Klagenfurt AC hockey club in Austria’s elite professional league. Four years later, the Austrian city of 100,000 has become Spurgeon’s annual winter home.

HUMOROUS

TIRE REFERENCE.

FORMER Kelowna Rockets’ captain Tyler Spurgeon is in his fourth season of pro hockey in Austria. “Obviously I’m like so many guys in that I want to play in the NHL, but I also want to be healthy and get something back from the game for all the years I’ve put into it,” said Spurgeon, 27, currently in his fourth season with Klagenfurt. “There was an opportunity to come here and I liked it right away. I love playing the game, the money and lifestyle is good here, and it’s a chance to build up a nestegg and ensure your future a little bit. “I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do that back home.”

WE’RE SERIOUS ABOUT TIRES.

We offer a full range of brand name tires and the expert knowledge to help you make the best choice.

Spurgeon is one of a growing number of former Kelowna Rockets— and many WHL players—who have taken their careers to Europe over the last five years. Justin Keller is also playing in Austria, while Brett Palin, Colin Long, Carsen Germyn and Mike Card are in Germany, Cody Almond is starring for a team in Switzerland, and Kyle Cumiskey is in Sweden. So why is Europe such an attractive alternative for so many who grew up playing the North American game ? For starters, players can expect to make at

least two to three times more money than in the AHL, while also having their accommodations and a personal vehicle paid for by the hockey club. Factor in fewer games and a generally less physical brand of hockey on the larger ice surface, and typically players can enjoy longer careers in Europe. Few ex-players are more familiar with the pro hockey life on the other side of the Atlantic than Kelowna Rockets’ assistant coach Dan Lambert. After nine seasons in the pro game in North

America, including 29 games in the NHL, the former defenceman from St. Boniface, Man., went on to play 10 seasons in Germany. While he concedes it’s not for everyone, Europe was a move Lambert wishes he had made years earlier in his career. Lambert said because not all players coming out of junior are the calibre of ex-Rockets like Jamie Benn or Tyler Myers, not all are shoo-ins to play in the NHL. That’s where the European option comes in. “You know, some guys get to a crossroads

KLAGENFURT AC/CONTRIBUTED

in their careers, that if they’re still in the minors at 24, 25, 26, they have a decision to make,” said Lambert. “Typically what happens is they’re on the bubble and aren’t sure if making the NHL is a possibility anymore. “If guys want to prolong their careers and make as good a money and often better, Europe is a great option. “I think going to Europe prolonged my career six or seven years and I loved it.

CLOSE-UP ▼ THE EUROPEAN OPTION

Alternative to AHL appealing to many former Rockets Careers from A3 “If I had it to do again, I would have gone sooner.” Because there is more space on the European ice, there are fewer collisions and, in turn, Lambert says, fewer concussions—another important factor in the extension of a player’s longevity. As for the quality of the European game, Tyler Spurgeon says it’s helped him become a better, more well-rounded player. “It isn’t as physical here as some other leagues, but it’s very fast and you have guys making a lot of skilled plays,” said Spurgeon. “The knock on me was always my skating. Since I’ve come here my skating is better and my skill set has improved. “There are ways to grow your game when you’re not playing on the third or fourth line in North America. To be able to say I’m still improving at 27 is pretty encouraging.” While Spurgeon hasn’t completely closed the door on the NHL, he admits he would be content to play out his ca-

Dan Lambert reer in Europe if the right opportunities continue to come his way. Besides, Tyler’s younger brother, Jared, is in the process of living out the Spurgeon family’s NHL dream as a member of the Minnesota Wild. Tyler said Jared could have just as easily ended up in Europe or at a Canadian university if not for some breaks, good timing and a little determination.

10 goals and 17 points. After playing in just 25 NHL games with Minnesota over his first three pro seasons, Almond decided to take advantage of his Swiss passport and make the jump across the Atlantic. “I just felt it was the best thing for my career right now,” said Almond, 24. “I can keep developing as a player, work on parts of my game that need improving and just continue to enjoy playing. Off the ice, I’m well taken care of by the team. Right now, I’m happy with my decision and I’ll just take it a year at a time.” With the average salary for imports in the Swiss-A league at around $300,000, players like Almond can make a considerably better living than playing in the minors in North America. After playing the majority of his first three pro seasons with Houston in the American Hockey League, Almond thoroughly welcomed the change. “The (AHL) is a tough league to play in, you’re not getting paid that well,

“He was almost ready to go to the U of A (Edmonton) when the Wild decided to give him a look at rookie camp (2010),” said Spurgeon. “It was more of a token thing, but he did well and they signed him to play in Houston. By Christmas he was in the NHL and he hasn’t looked back. When we talk (Jared) laughs about it, he says he doesn’t even know how it happened. “You can see how it can go either way.

the schedule and travel is difficult,” said Almond. “It’s more of a younger guys developmental league, guys play so hard, it can really take its toll on you. When you’re 25 or so and still trying to break down the door to the NHL, for a lot of guys Europe is the way to go. “The AHL is good hockey, and so is this. They’re just different.” Away from the rink, Almond continues to enjoy and absorb Swiss culture, even if Geneva happens to be one of Europe’s most expensive cities to inhabit. “It’s a pretty cool city, but it’s definitely not cheap,” Almond said with a laugh. “It’s very international with a lot of different languages, primarily French, but also Italian and German. Everything is so close here, when we get breaks we can get out see Europe a little. I’ve been to Rome, London and Paris. It’s a pretty nice place to be.” And how is Almond’s command of the French language progressing ? “It’s getting better, I’m working on it,” he said. “For the first while I was here when I was ordering food, I would just say ‘la même chose’ (the same thing). I would get whatever the guy in front of me ordered. I would get some nice surprises.” One of the other perks for Almond will be playing in Geneva’s first ever outdoor pro hockey game, Geneve Servette takes on Lausanne on Jan. 11. By 2015, Almond will also be eligible to play internationally for Switzerland at the world championship. *** Since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 NHL entry draft, Mitchell Callahan has been working towards one goal—cracking the lineup of the Detroit Red Wings. Now in his third pro season, the former Kelowna Rockets forward is laying the groundwork

for a NHL future with the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins. “It’s awesome because I’m playing pro hockey,” said Callahan, a native of Whittier, Calif. “It’s not the NHL but it’s the next best thing in North America. To be able to get paid while trying to live out a dream, I can’t ask for anything more. I’m going to take it a step at a time, see what happens and hopefully get to my dream.” As an organization, the Red Wings are known for exercising patience with their young prospects, seldom promoting them to the NHL before they have considerable pro experience under their belts. Callahan, 22, hopes his opportunity to land in Detroit won’t be too far down the road. “Detroit grooms their prospects a little longer than most teams, most guys don’t get full-time work before they’re 22 or 23, even 24,” Callahan said. “I’m improving every year, playing my role as an energy guy, so hopefully they’ll like what they see and I’ll soon get a chance to prove myself.” While Callahan plans to pour all of his energy into making the Red Wings, he knows there are no guarantees. If an NHL future isn’t in the cards, then Callahan said he would entertain thoughts of one day relocating to Europe— like so many other former Rockets have done before him. “I definitely want to stay in North America and give it everything I have to try and make the NHL,” Callahan said. “If the window to Europe was to open at some time, I’d consider it. “The people I’ve talked to that have experienced it say they loved it. I want to stay here, but if the chance came up to better my hockey career, then I would go.” whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Regional district facing legal action threat from developer

The Regional District of the Central Okanagan has been served with a notice of legal action by the developer behind Kelowna Mountain, according regional district board chairman Robert Hobson. The one building currently standing on the Kelowna Mountain site, a marble-floored Italian-style villa, was given both a building permit and occupancy permit. However, it was built significantly larger than what was proposed and approved. The occupancy permit will allow the building to be used partially for tourism, but as there is now the space over and above what the district’s bylaws would allow for an agri-tourism venture, the developer’s only option is to use the rest of the fancy building for agricultural storage. “We have reached out to the owner on numerous occasions to get approval for the things he wants to do in the area,” said Hobson, noting he’s yet to follow-up with regional planners on any of the requests to deal with a string of issues the development faces.

A death should be ▼ mourned N no matter who it is

a o l To the editor: t A very good editorial wasn re-published Nov. 19 in thei Capital News from the Peacea Arch News. It wrote about the unfortu-T nate homicide of a drug-de-t pendent female sex worker. o It stated: “A loss of human life should never be rationalized or accepted as understandable or natural.” And added: “It can never be offered as tacit justification of a violent end,” and “Instead of breathing a collective sigh of relief that the victim didn’t turn out to be a ‘normal’ suburban mother, child, sister or spouse, we should be reaffirming that, for our society, any homicide at all is unacceptable.” Hear, hear. These are great words. I think they can be applied to female gendercide in Canada and around the world. Will Canada and Canadians do anything about this tragedy or will we think that it is for the best as some people think of the homicide of the woman from the Lower Mainland?

Sadly, we were not successful in our effort, but it is heartening that so many locals came out and helped to look for a fellow community member. I would also like to take a moment to thank the many volunteers who are involved in search and rescue organizations in our local communities throughout Okanagan-Coquihalla. This challenging and highly valued service from so many volunteers is important for those who may be missing a loved one and is very community

minded. Meanwhile, the House of Commons resumed session this week after a brief five-day recess. We will continue disDan cussions on government Albas Bill C-2 —Respect for Communities Act— and Bill C-3 —Safeguarding Canada’s Seas and Skies Act. There will also be a number of Private Member’s Bills up for debate this week, including Bills C-428 (Indian Act Amendment and Replacement Act), Bill C-523 (Mandatory Disclosure of Drug Shortages Act), Bill C-520 (Supporting Non-Partisan Agents of Parliament Act and Bill C-461 (CBC and Public Service Disclosure and Transparency Act.) If you would like further informa-

tion on these or any other bill before the House of Commons, do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience. Also occurring this week is a vote on the Opposition Day motion from the NDP that was introduced last week. The motion suggests the Keystone XL pipeline is not in Canada’s best interest. This has been an interesting debate as both the government and the federal Liberals are supportive of the Keystone XL project that the NDP has been actively opposing for some time. On a related theme, this past weekend there was also an effort to organize and demonstrate against the Northern Gateway Pipeline in front of my Penticton office. As I was in Merritt and could not attend this gathering, I feel it is important to recognize that a number of residents took the time to speak out against this

s a b a

particular pipeline project. I have also heard from a number of constituents who are strongly support- t ive of pipelines in general, or in some p cases, supportive of certain pipeline p projects but opposed to others. This is p certainly an area where I welcome fur- s ther input from constituents. i While some have expressed opposition to pipelines, very few have pro- n posed alternatives that do not include o increased rail or truck transport that m also carry risk. t Although the House of Commons a is now in session until mid-December, if you have a comment, concern or a question I am available by phone in the k late afternoon and early evening here f in B.C. while I am in Ottawa. I can be p reached via email dan.albas@parl.gc.cai or at 1-800-665-8711. a Dan Albas is the Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla.

Writer supports pipeline proposals To the editor: Good to see (columnist) Tom Fletcher sort out the “truths” and “falsehoods” re. the pipeline discussions (in a recent column). I find it amazingto look at a map of North America and see the thou-

sands of miles of buried pipelines. It truly is a safe system, in spite of the aging equipment. Yes, there are spills here and there, but they are miniscule compared to the size of the entire network.

Yet we cannot diminish the impact of even a single spill. I am sure that upcoming projects will be regulated better than in the past. Technology and materials have definitely improved. Pipelines have a better

track record than railways. Note the silence of pipelines protestors for a few weeks after the Quebec rail disaster. It is a fact that we need more energy for our future needs, not to mention to help pay for our greatly increasing health costs, as

the aging baby boomers enter our health system. If you don’t agree with the need for more energy for our needs, and for export, please turn down your furnace and take a bus.  Gerald A Just, Kelowna

NDP’s majority not enough for secession

To the editor: I think we can all agree that the leaders of our country should be looking out for the best interests of Canada and that national unity is in the best interests of the country as a whole. (Federal NDP leader) Thomas Mulcair’s stance that a 50 per cent plus one vote is enough to trig-

ger Quebec’s secession is reckless, fanning divisive politics that seek to undermine our national unity as Canadians. In 1998, the Supreme Court said that a clear majority voting in favor of secession in a clear question should be sufficient to trigger negotiations. The NDP’s position is that 50 percent of the

votes cast plus one single vote constitutes a clear majority. That is unequivocally wrong. There is no way that one single vote constitutes a clear majority. I could meet in the middle and agree to it being a bare majority but that’s a far cry from an outright clear majority.

Surely the Supreme Court of Canada’s intention wasn’t to set such a minimalistic standard in its wording. Canadians of all stripes from coast to coast to coast built this nation by the strength of their backs and the sweat on their brow and shame on the NDP for advocating such a stunningly low

standard to a question of such astronomical national importance. The NDP’s stance on national unity is not worthy of our highest office.

B.C.’s wildlife resources not helped with new rules decline. Our wildlife resource cannot compete with long hunting seasons, road access that gets larger every year, four-by-four trucks and the new problem, the quad bike hunter. In the background are the never ending challenges of hard winters, road kill, land alienation and predators. So why would our B.C. Liberal free enterprise government insist

on maximizing hunting opportunity instead of insisting on conservative wildlife management? After all, hunters will travel to hunt where their chances of success are high and will likewise quit hunting where the prospects of success are grim. If anyone should pursue intelligent due diligence and connect with a hunter or guide who can run the numbers and tell the story you will discov-

er: The caribou population in the north are in serious trouble, the moose population is in serious decline, the elk in the east Kootenay have been hammered and the province’s whitetail and mule deer populations are in crisis. Remember Murphy’s Law—assumption is the mother of all screw-ups. The urban wildlife phenomenon was all about animals seeking a safe sanctuary especially

the deer and should have been a red flag. After all, any due diligence would have confirmed that the deer on their historic range were down significantly since the mid-1990s but in British Columbia selling resident hunting licenses is more important than prudent wildlife management.

Cable companies need to change ‘packaging’

Many cable television subscribers are puzzled about the many channels bundled together to make a package for them.  Here is how it works: the cable companies have programs that need to be paid for by the cable companies i.e. HBO, nature shows and documentaries etc. These are costs to the network and these shows only make the network money if they can pass them on to you in a package. Other programs such as religious, sales, marketing and so on are paid for by the companies that produce these programs i.e. the cable companies are paid for adding these

packages to your bundle.  This is why the cable companies separate all the popular programs and package them with the “garbage” or unwanted programs that most people do not appreciate. This makes watching your favourite programs clumsy since you must search for yours and screen out the ones that do not interest you.  Cable companies have the technology to send you any program that you wish to subscribe to minus any that you do not wish to see but then the cable companies do not make the money from the less popular programs.  The first cable company that offers a free

choice of programs for their personal bundle will be the winner because that will be what consumers want.  Consumers do  not need 197 channels if hockey, news and a few other programs are theirmain interest.  The cost to consumers would be the same— it would be the networks that would need to adjust their payments from the programs that have to pay the networks to come into the package.  The first cable company that offers this will be very popular.  Jorgen Hansen Kelowna

Westbank Lions Community Centre found to be salvageable Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

One of Westbank’s most historic buildings

does not need to be rebuilt from scratch, the Westbank Lions Club learned last week. The Westbank Lions

Community Centre, which was damaged by fire Sept. 1, suffered about 40 per cent damage, according to West-

bank Lions Club president Wayne Atkinson. He said when he initially saw the exterior damage, he assumed the NOV 23

building would be a writeoff. “From the outside it looked terrible,” said Atkinson. “But when I had a tour, I (saw) the biggest portion of the building was not touched. “They said it was 35 (to) 45 per cent burned, which is far below what they would rebuild.” He said there were mixed preferences regarding whether or not it would be better to rebuild the building from scratch amongst club members and the general public. “Many thought it

could’ve been replaced with a brand new, modern building. But sometimes modernity leaves behind history.” Atkinson said repairs could get underway either at the end of this month, or in early December. The original building was opened in April 1930. According to Atkinson, at the time, sawdust met building code requirements for insulation. “There are some good things that will come out of this…(the building) will be replaced with

more modern insulation.” He said the club is still unsure how much of the cost will be covered by insurance. “We expect to have to do some fundraising, but I’ve said to the club, ‘We’re not fundraising until we know how much and what for.’ We need to be open to the community and accountable to the community for how we look after that building.” The Westbank Lions Community Centre will likely re-open in September or October 2014.

Co-op reducing staff and extending work-day shift Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

With closure of the apple packing line at Kelowna, the new B.C. Tree Fruits Cooperative agreement with members of local 247 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union was opened a year early to negotiate language to deal with the changed workplace. Bob Fisher-Fleming, human relations manager for the co-op, said the permanent layoffs affected some 60 people and were based strictly on seniority, which included other co-op lists and plants in the valley. The newly-updated Winfield plant took 27 of the Kelowna workers while the rest went south

in the valley. Although there was no wage increase in the seven-year contract, there are four signing bonuses over that period of time in the new contract, he said. “It’s all about competition. We’re in a very competitive position. People working in the U.S. or elsewhere in the valley are getting half the wage that our employees are,” he explained. “We have to be leaner,” he added. “It was a tough negotiation. We went in with

one issue. We wanted a 10-hour day and a fourday week so there are fewer employees working more hours. That will save us some money and the employees will get more work,” he said. He admitted it’s an experiment since no one is sure how 10-hour days will work, but it gives employees three-day weekends, which people like. Productivity gains because there are fewer start-ups, but still everyone only works a 40-hour week. There’ll be a four-

day and a three-day shift, but he felt confident many of those on the three-day shift will get more time with holidays and sicktime counted in. The longer shifts will begin Dec. 1. No one at the union’s Kelowna office would comment or be interviewed on the new contract. The receptionist would only say the union never speaks to the press and she hung up. Members voted on the new agreement at the end of September and begin-

▼ HUNTING

Three poachers fined a total of $2,630 Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Three Vernon men were fined a total of $2,630 for poaching moose in the Haddo Lake area out of Lumby last Sunday, and two of the animals were seized. Conservation officer Ed Seitz said they had a Limited Entry Hunting permit for a cow/calf moose, but had already shot one when they then shot two more. They received a total of 12 tickets for such offences as hunting during a closed season, unlawful possession of wildlife and exceeding their quota, he said. One received tickets worth $1,700, another $700 and another $230. “It was deliberate,” commented Seitz. Now you can use the Internet to add your own non-profit event to the Capital News Stuff to Do.

Government bent on destroying the wild—not protecting it

I

t’s pretty impressive what the non-profit sector is achieving in the way of protecting and even restoring natural features in the Okanagan— but I can’t say the same for government.

Even many businesses contribute their fair share toward projects, but there are fewer and fewer provincial and federal government staff here looking after our air and water quality, and habitat for

birds, wildlife and fish. And, instead of beefing up legislation to protect Canada’s wild areas, both governments are watering it down and slashing it to pieces. Yet, those wild things

and wild spaces are what Canada is all about, to those of us living here— and to people in other countries who are envious that we have such varied and vast wilderness areas. Whether it’s rocky ocean shorelines and islands, stunning waterfalls, wide rivers, burbling streams, open grasslands, sere desert, lush forests, snowy mountains, rich wetlands or meadows of wildflowers, both B.C. and Canada have it all—still. But it’s not going to last as long as our senior governments deem that resource extraction and big industry’s needs trump protection of the natural environment. The terms salmon rivers and trout lakes will be only words at the rate we’re going. Soon, pristine will never again be paired with wilderness in this country. And, it’s not just me ranting on. Earlier this month, the federal commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development released the findings of an audit completed for the office of the Auditor General of Canada that included a lengthy list of shortcom-

itoring and reporting system; staffing for conservation at national parks has declined 23 per cent and scientific staff positions are down by more than a third. More than a third of national parks have experienced a deterioration in their ecosystems, he reported. As we all know here in B.C., Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Parks Canada fall short on doing what they are mandated to do. They have not met legal requirements for Species at Risk recovery plans, with seven of 97 required plans in place, he noted. It makes one wonder about the wisdom of creating a new national park in the South Okanagan for this government to manage when it’s busy tearing up all its environmental legislation. In the absence of senior government leadership, it has fallen to non-profit organizations to try and fill in some of the gaps, where they can. Groups such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada, which has brought together dozens of groups and individuals, including the Okanagan Region Wildlife Heritage Fund Society (orwhfs.com) and the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (hctf.ca), to purchase 1,262 hectares of grassland habitat along the border in the South Okanagan this year. The Sage and Sparrow properties are critical components of a migratory corridor for species moving between the de-

sert and the dry grasslands of interior B.C. The properties abut the 9,364-ha provincial South Okanagan Grasslands Protected Area to form a habitat link between the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys. Such buy-in by volunteers and the non-profit organizations they belong to is not only admirable, but also essential when government forsakes its responsibilities like this. Your help is needed to continue the work non-profit organizations do, so consider volunteering to do your bit or donating to provide the materials needed. ORWHFS was formed in 1988 here by members of the B.C. Wildlife Federation, Okanagan Region, to purchase land for wildlife, while the HCTF raises its money through surcharges on hunting, fishing and guiding licences and invests it in projects to maintain and enhance the health and biological diversity of habitat. Those anglers and hunters from throughout the province will gather in Kelowna next spring for the 2014 annual general meeting of the BCWF at the Delta Grand, April10 to 12.

New gardener to the Okanagan is making ethical choices

C

arol Drury was the winner of the best professionally designed residential landscape in the 2013 Okanagan Xeriscape Garden Contest. Last year she and her husband bought a home in Lower Mission, retiring to Kelowna from Calgary. When asked what influenced her decision to create a water-wise/xeriscape landscape, Carol stated: “I wanted a yard that was lower maintenance, hence no turf grass. “I also wanted to use less water and use it more efficiently, in tune with the Okanagan climate. I wanted to attract birds and butterflies and to create a restful, natural feeling for the backyard.” Before re-landscaping her new property, which was mostly sloping lawn, Drury researched how to garden successfully in the dry, Okanagan climate. As soon as she moved here, she attended my ‘Introduction to Xeriscape’ class, joined the Okanagan Xeriscape Association, and began volunteering in the unH2O Xeriscape Garden.

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele She quickly learned about xeriscape plants and practices. She worked with Lisa Masini, of Waterwise Landscape Design, to transform her dreams into reality. All the turf was removed as well as some shrubs such as overgrown

junipers and water-thirsty rhododendrons. A landscape block retaining wall was built part way down the sloping back yard to create two flatter areas. The larger, lower area adjacent to the house was planted this fall as a wildflower meadow intersected by compacted gravel paths. One leads to a sunny patio surrounded by drought-tolerant, long-blooming perennials to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Adjacent to this are berry bushes to feed birds and an apricot tree.

Another path leads to a cool, restful, shaded sitting area beside a lush garden of perennials that thrive in dry shade. Part of the upper garden is the one area that is regularly irrigated. Drury explained: “My father used to grow beautiful roses in Ontario. In Calgary, I could only grow very hardy types. Now I have nine bushes of ‘Ontario’ roses, which require more attention and water, but they are a fond remembrance of my childhood.” The rose garden is

well placed to be viewed from the house and from back yard seating areas, maximizing the enjoyment from these higher maintenance shrubs. The front yard has had a small, curved retaining wall placed to break up the slope. The whole area is planted with drought-toler-

ant, sun loving plants with good spacing to allow for growth without crowding. All irrigation on the property has been converted to drip. Multiple zones give flexibility to irrigate only as needed. The landscape has been mulched with Nature’s Gold to retain moisture and provide a slow

consistent level of fertilization, continuously improve the soil, and suppress weeds. By choosing to garden with the climate, Drury is saving water, providing wildlife habitat, and has eliminated time-consuming lawn maintenance. www.okanaganxeriscape.org

NEWS ▼ ICEWINE GRAPES

Labour shortage hampers harvest Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

CONTRIBUTED

ROCK hard, frozen grapes are dumped into a bin at Summerhill Pyramid Winery overnight as pickers pluck them in the dark for icewine.

Not enough people were willing to brave the freezing temperatures to pluck frozen grapes the past couple of nights, so Summerhill Pyramid Winery only got about two-thirds of the grapes picked that they had left on the vine for making icewine. The labour shortage could be partly because there is an estimated 1,000 tonnes or so of grapes, which have been

left hanging on the vines in the Okanagan this year, waiting for the required temperatures of -8 C or below to pick to make the premium icewine. The discomfort of picking frozen marbles at that temperature, and the difficulty of finding enough people to take them off—often in the dark while the temperatures are lowest—has been circumvented by Calona Vineyards, where winemaker Howard Soon says they now pick them by machine.

“There are no frozen fingers that way,” he commented. This is one of the earliest starts to the icewine grape harvest in the Okanagan, which sometimes doesn’t get underway until February if the winter is mild. That means the quantity and quality are better, according to some, although Ingo Grady, director of wine education for Mission Hill Family Estate, says some prefer some freezing and thawing cycles before picking the rock-hard grapes, to achieve different nuances of flavour. In all, 29 wineries in the valley left grapes hanging on a total of 270 acres in the valley for picking to make icewine, reports Lindsay Kelm, communications manager for the B.C. Wine Institute. The first icewine grapes picked this year were at Little Straw Vineyards in West Kelowna, early Wednesday morning while temperatures were at -10 C and they went back later in the day and finished at 10 p.m. that night. Nearby, Volcanic Hills Estate Winery completed their harvest that day as well, picking Riesling, Zweigelt and Chardonnay. Eric von Krosigk, winemaker at Summerhill, said they began picking Wednesday as well, in

Okanagan Falls, Osoyoos and at the winery in the Mission area, but they weren’t able to finish in any of those vineyards. Labour was an issue in the south part of the valley, where large blocks of grapes have been left for icewine. In all, they kept back 20 acres of grapes, and he says the quality is fantastic. “It’s golden for us this year. We lost 85 per cent of the crop by the time it got cold enough last year. And, there’s been lots of sun so the sugars are up.” However, he noted it’s been a weird year weather-wise, making it a long harvest season. Grady noted that too, and said they began the regular harvest early this year, Sept. 4, and ended it late, Nov. 8, and now the icewine harvest is early. It’s been the longest harvest they’ve every experienced, he said. Mission Hill had three crews picking in Oliver, Naramata and West Kelowna in the very early hours Thursday morning, but he said icewine is just a specialty wine, with grapes left on an acre here and there in the valley. As well, Sperling Vineyards, Tantalus, Quails’ Gate and Rollingdale picked icewine grapes this week in the Central Okanagan and all hope to complete the harvest before the week is over.

Kelowna teen allegedly assaults many students A distraught 17-year-old Kelowna female may face multiple charges of assault after police responded to an incident Wednesday at Okanagan Mission Secondary School. Kelowna Mounties received a report of a distraught teen who was slapping students in the hallway of OKM at 12:40 p.m. The female apparently discarded her shirt before entering the school. While inside the school, she allegedly assaulted a number of people, none of whom suffered serious injuries, before fleeing on foot. Police located the girl on Lakeshore Road a short time later and determined she may have been experiencing an unknown mental crisis. The teen was taken to the hospital for any treatment she may have required. The Kelowna girl was determined to not be a student of OKM and the investigation is ongoing. She was released from police custody into the care of medical practitioners and was issued documents compelling her to court at a later date, as well as prohibiting her from being at OKM in order to protect students and staff. According to Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark, neither alcohol nor drugs are considered to be a factor in the incident. He added the students didn’t appear to be targeted, and prior Kelowna RCMP contact with the female has been extremely limited and not in a mental health capacity.

wards the 2018 Olympic Winter Games,” said Dan Thompson, CEO of Skate Canada. With an enthusiastic team of volunteers from Skate Canada British Columbia/Yukon, the partnership of the province of British Columbia, the tremendous support from Tourism Kelowna, and the City of Kelowna, there is a wonderful team prepared to stage this event. “We know the fans and the competing athletes will all be warmly welcomed to a beautiful

part of our country.” Skate Canada International is the second competition in the annual ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating series. The other events take place in the United States (Skate America), China (Cup of China), France (Trophée Eric Bompard), Russia (Rostelecom Cup) and Japan (NHK Trophy). Skaters are awarded points based on their placements in the series’ events. The top-six men and ladies and the top-six pair and ice dance teams

qualify for the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating final in December 2014. Nancy Cameron, president and CEO of Tourism Kelowna, called the awarding of the Skate Canada International to the city a tremendous opportunity for Kelowna. “The event will shine an international spotlight on Kelowna and on this city’s ability to excel at hosting major events, while providing our tourism industry with a direct boost at a slower time of the year,” Cameron said.

“We had a strong team of partners who brought all the pieces together, including the City of Kelowna, the Kelowna Skating Club, the Delta Grand Okanagan, RG Properties

and the Kelowna Rockets.” Tickets are expected to go on sale for the event in the spring. Additional information will be posted on www.skatecanada.ca as soon as it is available.

Kelowna pitcher earns himself a second chance KELOWNA baseball player Mike Monster, seen here in action with the Okanagan Coyotes, has signed a free agent contract with the Anaheim Angels. CONTRIBUTED

Mike Monster signs a major league contract with Anaheim four years after being drafted by Cincinnati.

Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

When Kelowna baseball player Mike Monster was drafted by Cincinnati in the 2009 Major League Baseball draft, he was a young prospect filled with potential. But he admits he wasn’t ready. He was never signed and soon after he was out of baseball and moved on to work and to friends. That was four years ago. Now opportunity has struck again for the 6-foot-3 right-handed pitcher, and in the oddest of circumstances. For almost two years Monster has been out of baseball. But during the Okanagan College Coyotes alumni game about a month ago, the Rutland Senior graduate came out for fun and soon started turning heads in the bullpen when his fastball was clocked at 95 miles per hour on the radar gun. Word quickly spread and in the span of the next four weeks, Monster was throwing for an Anaheim Angels scout, was flown to Seattle to throw for the Angels assistant general manager, where his fastball hit 97 mph, before being offered a free agent contract that he signed this week. “I guess it’s kind of a shock,” said Monster in an interview with the Capital News this week. “It only took a month from when I threw at the Coyotes’ alumni game. I was just throwing and having fun. It’s pretty crazy this happened but I’m not the kind

of guy to get caught up in those things. It will be a little more real in March (before spring training). It’s going to be fun.” Okanagan Coyotes baseball coach Geoff White is familiar with Monster’s work on the mound. At the time White was concluding a semi-pro baseball career himself, Monster was climbing through the ranks of Kelowna Minor Baseball. He finally coached him with the Coyotes in the team’s spring 2012 season when Monster jumped back into the game. And when White saw Monster throw at the Coyotes alumni game and saw the radar gun hit 95, he put the word out to his baseball contacts and got the ball rolling towards Monster’s eventual signing.

‘‘

I WASN’T REALLY PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY READY. I JUST DIDN’T FEEL LIKE GOING DOWN TO THE STATES AT THAT POINT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION FOR ME. Mike Monster

“When he was warming up all of the sudden everyone stopped to watch him,” White said of the bullpen session. “You could tell he was throwing hard. I was surprised. For him to hit 97... it’s not very often you see that from a guy that has stepped away from the game. Mike has always had the ability to throw hard. Now I think he’s gotten to a point where he is even stronger and he’s become a man. It’s a great to see him get the oppor-

tunity and it’s up to him to run with it.” From the time he moved though minor baseball in Kelowna and advanced to the top levels in bantam AAA and then the Premier (midget) Baseball League, Monster was a top prospect. He threw hard and had lots of talent. But he also admits he wasn’t ready to chase the athletic dream at the age of 18 and wanted to have a normal life with friends. “I wasn’t really physically or mentally ready,” he said. “I just didn’t feel like going down to the States at that point was the right decision for me. I felt like I went through a lot in terms of baseball those previous couple years. I was just 18. I just wanted to hang out with my buddies. Whether that was the right choice I will never know. It wasn’t like I stopped playing and said ‘never again’. I always enjoyed the sport but I never used to say ‘this is what I’m going to do.’ I just took a little bit of time off to find some work and I started to work out.” And taking a step away does seem to have paid off for Monster will get another chance to tryout for a professional baseball team. Now 23, he says he is ready for the opportunity, in whatever form it takes. “I’m definitely a lot more comfortable with the situation,” he said. “I’m not confused by it. I’m more mature and able to handle it better. My goal is to just do everything I can to be as good as I can. if that takes me to the top, to the major leagues someday, obviously that’s what I want. Beyond giving it everything I have, it’s not really in my control.” Monster will report to the Anaheim Angels spring training facility in March.

Chapman played in the NHL with Pittsburgh and St. Louis between 1976 and 1983 and scored 110 goals and 241 points in more than 400 games before injuries ended his career.

• Yard waste pick up every two weeks through the end of November. • Just put your material right into the cart, close the lid and wheel it out for pickup. • Accepted items include grass clippings, leaves, needles, pruning, fruit droppings and branches. • NOTE: yard waste must fit in the cart with the lid closed. • NO garbage, plastic bags, flower pots, rocks, soil, sod or kitchen scraps please.

Matt Carson and the Dinos will take on the hometown Laval Rouge et Or on Saturday afternoon in the 2013 Canadian Interuniversity Sport championship game. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Matt Carson. “It means a lot to us to be here and we’re going to try and make the most of it.” Carson, 20, played three seasons with the KSS Owls before joining the U of C program in 2011. After red-shirting for two years, he was added to the playing roster at the start of this season and has seen action in every game on the defensive line. Paul Carson, who is the president of the Okanagan Sun, played five seasons with the Dinos in the mid 1980s, winning two Vanier Cups. He also coached with the Dinos from 1990 to 2000, winning a Canadian title in 1995. While his dad’s uni-

Right now, I’m just happy to be playing with this team and to be in the cup.”

The younger Carson didn’t attend the U of C specifically to follow in his dad’s footsteps. In addition to being born there and still having family in the Alberta city, Matt also chose Calgary to pursue an education in petroleum geology. Seeing his son wearing the red and gold of the Dinos stirs up some interesting emotions for Paul Carson. “It’s a little surreal, in

a way,” said Paul Carson, who still works as guest coach each year at Dinos camp. “Some of the guys I coached with are still there coaching Matt now. “More than anything, I’m excited for him. The whole Vanier Cup experience, especially in Laval where there will be 20,000 fans is something he’ll never forget.” Kick off Saturday in Quebec City is 10 a.m. Pacific time.

OKM just misses in its bid to retain B.C. soccer title

The OKM Huskies came close to a repeat but in the end lost the AA provincial high school championships after penalty kicks decided the championship this week in Burnaby. D The final two games of the event came down to penalty kicks, as OKM were able to advance to the championship with a semi-final win before losing out in the final. “The boys won silver but it’s a hard way to lose gold through penalty kicks,” admitted coach Tony Overton. “The game has to be decided but we can be very proud of the way the boys gave every last ounce of effort to defend their title.” The loss in the provincial final ended an unbelievable stretch of play from the OKM senior boys who haven’t lost a league game in three years

and outscored its AA opposition 92-14 in 22 games played this season. The end of the season also marks the end of the line for six seniors at OKM who have been through the trenches the past three years and laid the groundwork for what is a special soccer community at the school. Walker Shanks, Joe Overton, Dylan Wagner, Dan Perry, Ben McDonald and Matt Fielding completed their high school soccer careers. The six won provincial bronze, gold and silver in the past three years with the OKM soccer team. At this year’s provincials both the semi-final and the final had to be decided by penalty kicks after the games were scoreless through regulation time and overtime. The semi-final was a rematch of the final from

OKM keeper Dan Perry made a diving save in the first half while OKM nailed the cross bar late in the game, before the match proceeded to penalty kicks where again it would be Perry to take the spotlight. With the shootout tied 6-6, Perry stepped to

the line and drilled home his kick before returning to the net and stopping the Archbishop shooter, sending OKM to the final where they would play the St. Thomas Aquinas. Again the game would proceed scoreless through regulation and overtime and into a shoot-out. But this time it would be the Aquinas who came out on top, scoring on four of five attempts while OKM went 3 for 5.

folks. Last Saturday night my adopted family of musical brothers and sisters gathered at the Kelowna Community Theatre and put on an amazing evening of quality music. Many of the tunes are still playing in my head. Although the theatre was not as full as I had hoped, there is no question that those who attended the 9th annual Night of the Arts witnessed a remarkable evening of fellowship and music once again. All six acts on stage— Dirt Road Opera, Jimmy LeGuilloux Band, the Trips, Papa Thom, Cowboy Bob, and of course Deb Stone—were tremendous. A tally of the funds raised for Metro Community will be completed soon and the name of the winner of the cruise for two to Mexico will also be announced. In addition to the musicians and many volunteers who donated their time, a tip of the hat goes to Peter Comrie of Full Spectrum Leadership for his generous sponsorship, as well as the care and

Charlie Hodge support displayed by our Kelowna Firefighters. One person I failed to thank (on Saturday evening) for her ongoing solid support of the event year after year is my number one supporter, Tez. It seems every year I go into some sort of fog for a few days before the event and Teresa manages to keep the ship pointed in the right direction and safely afloat. I tend to get all the praise and applause for the concert but it’s people like Teresa and Leslie Tulman who are the real stars of the night. Speaking of stars, music, and fabulous events, there are no better examples of all three rolled into one then Jim LeGuilloux and his annual Rock4Kids concert at Whiski Jack’s Pub in West Kelowna. On Sunday, Dec. 1,

Whiski Jack’s will be fully rocking as the facility plays host to the 20th annual fundraiser. For all 20 years, Jimmy has been involved with the Power104 sponsored event and for the majority of those years Jimmy has not only played but also hosted and organized the fabulous day long music and silent auction. It’s his caring and determined nature, as well as his exceptional musical skills that make him one of the most popular and highly regarded musicians in the Okanagan Valley. This year’s Rock4Kids is heaped with talent. Taking part will be The Odds, Fields of Green, Kinship, Slam dogs, The Flu, Young’uns, a reunion of 3hGAM, The Zamboni Brothers, and of course The Jimmy LeGuilloux Band. The day will kick off with the popular Songwriters Showcase featuring: Natasha Williamson, Melish Band, Steve Dreger, Rob Schaefer, Gary Turlock, Calum Hughes, Theresa Bishop and Floyd Vedan.

Rock4kids is scheduled to run from noon until 11:45 p.m. (wink wink, nudge nudge) on the Sunday. See you there hopefully. *** If I may segue to another musical note, my lifelong buddy Danny Thiessen has joined numerous other singer songwriters across the country in entering the current Hockey Night in Canada song writing contest. The winner of the contest will be asked to perform their song on a Hockey Night in Canada broadcast, which is something Danny says is now on his bucket list. Please give Danny’s song a listen and support his quest to win the contest by registering your vote. Check it out at http:// music.cbc.ca/#/artists/ Dan-Thiessen. It is a “by vote” contest with three voting periods to pick the winner. From all of the entries the first vote picks 50 to continue (voting starts on Nov.23). The second vote narrows the entries to the top 10 and the third vote picks the winner.

Children’s theatre ready for new challenge Time passes quickly. It was five years ago when Kelowna’s own Bumbershoot Children’s Theatre launched its first season. After entertaining and inspiring young audiences as well as performers for five years, the theatre company has announced its exciting sixth season, which will be the most challenging one yet.  Artistic director Tracy Ross said that in addition to five Mainstage productions, Bumbershoot will feature two new Theatre

for Teen Audience productions in addition to its annual summer Young Performers Program. The Mainstage productions are designed for all members of the family, and particularly children, and they feature adult as well as young performers. The first production of the new season will feature a new take on Red Riding Hood, to run from Jan. 16 to 26. Other coming Mainstage attractions, which are performed in Bumber-

shoot’s own theatre facility at 125-1295 Cannery Lane in downtown Kelowna, include Tilly the Trickster in March, A Year with Frog and Toad in May, Hansel and Gretel in late October and The Elves and the Shoemakers, which will be a new pre-Christmas production starting Dec. 20, 2014.

For the annual summer Young Performer’s Program, the featured production for 2014 will be Legally Blonde: The Musical next August. Bumbershoot, which was launched in 2009, is a non-profit registered charitable theatre company dedicated to introducing Okanagan youth and children to the magic of the theatre. “All of these experiences offer excellent opportunities for young people to explore the fun in theatre and to make new friends and great memories,” Ross said. Another busy activity is its residency program, which is done in conjunction with participating Okanagan schools. This program offers a week long in-school program which immerses students in a drama workshop as part of the school’s curriculum. After gaining firsthand drama knowledge and experience the students host a performance for parents with the proceeds going to the school. For more information see www. bumbershoottheatre.com.

CONTRIBUTOR

I am sitting at a small table with a big beer in a restaurant with a mystery name: Het Elfde Gebod. After five days here in Antwerp in the north of Belgium where they speak relentless Dutch, I’m used to such mysteries. I’m also getting used to surprises. Antwerp’s full of them. I am reminded of this once again, as I sit here in Restaurant Whatever, with yet another Antwerp surprise. I get to drink and dine in the gaze through the bubbles still rising to the foamy top of my brew, to the slightly rippling figures of saints. Saints, well, religious figures at least, gaze down upon me from every corner of this warm and noisy cafe. I am a little squeamish, at first, about drinking alcohol in their presence. I remind myself that this is, after all, Belgium, famous for its beer-making monks. Besides, I ordered the St. Barnabus. The beer culture is one more thing I’ve be-

come familiar with during my time here. It’s impossible not to, when in some places the beer menu is as thick as the Antwerp phone book—and each is served in a differently shaped glass to optimize its flavor. Anyway, this St. B. is apparently the king of beers. And now, to my somewhat marginally better critical eye, I can begin to appreciate it. The beer is dark, and I can smell the perfume of it from a foot away. The glass is beautiful, a serious and sturdy looking cross between a wineglass and a classic Coca Cola bottom. I take pictures as the glass takes on sheen of sweat. In the background, past the saints, out the window, the sky has gone from all-day bright blue to the navy just before nightfall. I take a sip. You remember Snuffles, the cartoon dog? You know how when he finally got that cookie treat, he’d clutch his stomach, writhe in paroxysms of joy, and float skyward? I was, in that instant, Snuffles-ecstatic. It was the beer, sure. It was the accompanying

meal. It was the garrulous, friendly crowd, the babble of everything but English. And if the religious statues, paintings, icons and whatevers weren’t actually channeling a heavenly vibe, their very presence in this unlikely situation, and their abundance, too, fueled the good cheer. Later, I learned that Het Elfde Gebod means The 11th Commandment in Dutch. The restaurant owners say that commandment is: “You shall enjoy,” a departure from the “shalt not” litany, and definitely an easy commandment to follow. Not just at this restaurant, either. But all over Antwerp. Belgium’s second-largest city after Brussels, Antwerp _ with more than a half-million people _ was a real revelation. Full of surprises, as I said, and the biggest surprise of all was how little I’d heard about Antwerp over my decades of traveling. Until earlier this year, when I learned about the new Red Star Line Museum opening here on Sept. 28, I was only familiar with the name of the city.

The museum, housed in the original buildings of the steamship company that brought more than 2 million emigrants to the United States, would be telling the other side _ the beginning, really _ of the Ellis Island story. Antwerp, it turns out, was a crossroads of commerce and culture in Europe _ had been for centuries. It is still the second-busiest port in Europe, after Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Where to start? The beer? The architecture? The cutting edge arts and fashion scene? The diamond trade? The gorgeous train station? Yes, let’s start there. Most visitors do. Antwerp does have its own airport, but international flights are much more plentiful into Brussels. From there, it’s 30 or so minutes by train to Antwerp’s Central Station. Big cities in Europe have impressive railroad stations much the same as big executives have impressive paper stock for their business cards. A central train station is the perfect place to establish a killer first impression. And Antwerp’s, de-

signed by Belgian Louis Delacenserie in 1895 and opened in 1905, will most certainly slay you. It has not one but two gorgeous neo-baroque facades, so either approach seems like the most important one. There’s an enormous ironand-glass dome over the train platforms, sweeping staircases and marble everywhere—along with gilded metalwork and sculptures. There are small details everywhere —I particularly loved the beehive bas-reliefs, conveying the Antwerpian penchant for industriousness. Look closely off to the left side of the stairs leading to the top platform —in a latticework porthole; a life-size and lifelike parrot is perched. The building itself incorporated so many architectural styles that it was hard to categorize as one period or another. In the end, it’s just endlessly grand. It’s been garnering even more praise for its recent restoration. Two new below-ground train platforms were added, along with tracks that enable high-speed trains run-

The renovation included more shopping with a new arcade featuring one of Antwerp’s best-known products: diamonds. A less-costly splurge (money-wise, though not calorie-wise) on a famous specialty would be good old Belgian waffles— piled high, hot and ready for toppings at some of the station’s cafes and kiosks.

verse to neatly categorize. There were women in hijab, women in saris; Hassidic Jews in black wool coats; stereotypically Scandinavian types, blond hair blue eyes; people speaking Russian; and course the folks speaking impenetrable Dutch. Multiculturalism is, I soon learned, one of Antwerp’s strong suits. In fact, with 170 nationalities here, Antwerp is the second-most multicultural city in the world, after Amsterdam. It’s an aspect of Antwerp that gives it energy, openness and a whole lot of food for thought. You can visit various communities _ the Jewish district is the largest, but there are also Portuguese, African and other neighbourhoods, too. We spent two days learning about the new Red Star Line Museum, grabbing additional attractions and tours to fill in the rest of our scant time in the city. On an overview tour of the city our first day, we got some background: Our guide told us how Antwerp got its name. According to legend, a mean giant named Antigoon used to guard a bridge over the Scheldt River and would force those

wanting to cross it to pay a toll. If they refused, he would cut off one of their hands and throw it in the river. Finally, a young Roman soldier and soonto-be hero name Brabo did unto Antigoon as he’d been doing to the nowone-handed. Whack went the blade and splash went Antigoon’s big hand, into the river. “Hantwerp” is Flemish for “hand-throwing.” Our guide then presented the second, and more scientific explanation for the origin of the name. “Aanwerp” is Dutch for an alluvial deposit or mound—like the one that was thought to exist centuries ago at a bend in the Scheldt. The nutrient-rich soil made the spot a wise choice to settle in for the long haul, and the place would eventually wind up as Antwerp. Hand cookies. Even if it is just a myth, the hand-throwing story has become a tangible part of the city. Brabo, the hero, rises from the waters of a monumental fountain in front of City Hall, forever mid-hand throw. The hand has become a symbol of the city: it’s on the coat of arms, handcharms fill the jewelry stores. But the most-loved hand is the “handje” sug#110-3001 Tutt St.

ar cookie sold in every bakery in town. By the end of the tour, I had a whole list of places I just had to see: the fashion district with its many cutting edge designers; the photography museum; MAS, a new design museum; the bridge across the Scheldt River that actually never does span the whole river. Whenever I found a couple of spare hours of free time, I was off and running. Except, Antwerp kept getting in the way. Antwerp, with its cobblestone streets. Its outdoor cafes. It’s crazy beautiful architecture. Its views over the river. Its friendly people (“Hey, come sit with us, where are you from?”). Like the day I decided to hit the fashion district and then the Rubens Museum. I did manage to check out the windows at the Dries Van Noten boutique _ Van Noten was one of the so-called Antwerp 6, graduates of Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts whose radical vision and aesthetic put the city on the fashion map after they showed their stuff at the London fashion fair in 1986. But I got waylaid for half an hour in a philosophical discussion with a friendly shopkeeper at the Diane von Furstenberg boutique one street over, and it eventually got to be too late to hit the Rubens Museum. So I wandered off in the direction of the Cathedral of Our Lady, which also had Rubens paintings _ very good ones. Except an archway leading to what looked like a garden caught my eye. The wall bore a plaque identifying the place as the Zwarte Panter. I had no clue what it was _ except there was a panther-like face on the plaque, so off I went. Just beyond the threshold, I came upon a sculpture hewn from a thick tree trunk of a lifesize man with John Lennon glasses and a dog at his feet. I stood before it, smiling, when who should come by but an artist, Frans Heirbaut. Thankfully, he spoke French as well as Dutch, so he disabused me of my assumption that the piece was a memorial to a dead guy and his dead dog. Not only were both alive, but they were right through the door at my back. Adriaan Raemdonck and

Antwerp cathedral is home to some of Rubens best works in his arms, his little dog Fleur, appeared in the doorway of what turned out to be Raemdonck’s office. Raemdonck looked just like the sculpture, except for the surprisingly Eugene Levy-esque eyebrows. This is a big guy, president of Federation of European Art Gallery Associations, as well as the owner of the Zwarte Panter. The gallery, by the way, includes a warren of artists’ studios, an inner courtyard and an exhibition space that provides a clue to its previous life _ stained glass windows left over from its centuries as a church and a haven for refugees. After our tour of the diamond district on another day, I realized we weren’t going to see any raw diamonds, or any polishing or faceting processes. I asked our guide if there was any place I could learn and see more about them; he mentioned a place called Diamondland. I asked directions there later, only to find out that Diamondland had gone to dust. Imagine my surprise, then, when, on my way to MAS, opened in 2011, I came upon the tiny Diamond Pavilion just across the walkway. Though it had no live demonstrations, it did show a few pretty gorgeous pieces of jewelry and some elaborately adorned walking sticks, and the owners are counting on expanding the facilities in the near future. Despite being waylaid, I did manage a brief spin around the MAS, a place so eclectic I am not sure what to call it. Well, the outside is distinctive, for each of its 10 stories is twisted 90 degrees to form a rising spiral. The 10 floors have exhibitions from basket-

Antwerp from A22 ball mobiles to advertising posters. I gravitated to the glass walls outside the exhibition rooms on each floor. The glass ripples like waves on the facade, so not only are there great views, but you can distort them with your own personalized viewing angles. On my last day, I made an extra effort to get the “musts” checked off my list and managed to visit the Museum Plantin-Moretus, home to the world’s oldest (400 years) printing presses as well as the house (mansion) of the owners—the Plantin and Moretus families, complete with 16th and 17th century decorative arts. The two families were influential in the development of Antwerp, and amassed their own impressive collection of art, some of which is on display, along with rare manuscripts and art prints. The museum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I was the last person out of the museum that day; 4 p.m. and I still had an hour for visiting the cathedral and its wealth of artwork. I hurried toward the main square, mustering all my willpower to pass by the intriguing awning advertising “Camper Theo— Shoes and Food.” I passed the alfresco cafe tables arranged three deep outside the centuries-old guild buildings-turned-restaurants. I stopped only momentarily to watch skateboarders catch air over an obstacle of serious tree trunks. But I couldn’t just rush by one final sight: A man in a tuxedo playing a massive yet portable organ outside the cathedral. I ground to a halt and wait-

ed while he flipped back his coattails, settled on his stool, shook feet out of loafers, and began to play. For some reason I was the only one in his audience at the moment. I sat down on the ground, looked at his socks and let my eyes travel up—easy in a cathedral—toward the intricately carved Gothic arches (the cathedral’s, not his), up past gargoyles and ancient carved stone faces to the lacy spire pointing into the white clouds daubed on blue sky. A Magritte moment. I did manage to get to the cathedral and see all the art, including several of Rubens’ most famous works. All this, and then, about to pass out from hunger and infuriated, pounding feet, stumbling upon the sainted Het Elfde Gebod restaurant. You know the rest. The Snuggles feeling, the saints, the St. Barnabus. Antwerp, who knew?

through Antwerp’s Central Station. Lodging: I stayed at the Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel, a convenient threeminute walk from the Central Station (some rooms have a view of the station, particularly spectacular at night); rates at this four-star hotel start at 83 euros nightly; radissonblu.com/astridhotel-antwerp. Antwerp Tourism and Conventions’ website has a nice search and booking engine for accommodations in categories including package deals, hotel, B&Bs, camping, youth and budget accommodation, even vacation rentals: start at visitantwerpen.be/Bezoekerssite-EN/ Visitors.html Dining: Antwerp has some wonderful restaurants. Here are a few that stood out on my recent trip: Het Elfde Gebod— aka Het Kathedraalcafe, Torfbrug 10. Flemish cuisine with a contemporary twist. kathedraalcafe.be. Beer Central, De Keyserlei 25. A serious beer pub—the seriousness is only over beer, however, otherwise, it’s great fun. On tap are 20 Belgian brews, on hand are more than 300 different bottle beers. Restaurant HORTA, Hopland 2, Named after Victor Horta, a respected art nouveau architect who built the original structure here in the 1930s.

It’s been updated, but the restaurant still benefits from spectacular design and location: large industrial beams frame huge space (the restaurant’s on the second floor) whose walls are floor to ceiling windows overlooking the neighbourhood, its shops, and, for dinner, a pinkhued sunset followed by the warm glow of nighttime streetlamps. grandcafehorta.be. Hoffy’s, Lange Kievitstraat 52. The Hoffman brothers serve traditional Yiddish cuisine in a plain, well lit restaurant situated in the back room, past the deli counter. Great for vegetarians. hoffys.be De Foyer, upstairs at the Bourla Theater, Komedieplaats 18; You’ll feel positively regal at this “foyer,” with its ornate and soaring domed ceilings, rich fabrics and cherub–themed knickknacks.

It’s undoubtedly more convenient to fly into the Brussels airport, only 28 miles away.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

The S3 really is the sweet spot for drivers that want to have extra power but with a very compliant and comfortable ride. Zack Spencer

Audi builds some of the most attractive cars these days still convey the same sense of power and solidity that bigger products portray.

ZACK SPENCER

Audi’s road ahead paved with more than good intentions 2014 Audi A3 Cabriolet/S3 MONACO: Over the next 12 months or so, consumers are going to be treated to an onslaught of new entries into the premium market. Not to worry, the next wave of German sedans and convertibles are of a more affordable nature. Recently Mercedes Benz introduced their all-new CLA 250 at an eye-popping price of just $34,000 for a sleek and sexy sedan. Next year we will see the introduction of BMW’s new 1-series and 2-Series sedans, coupes and convertibles. Audi has been ahead of the curve as they helped pioneer this entry-level segment with the original, the A3 sportback, sold in Canada for years. The all-new Audi A3 sedan will arrive in March of 2014 and the convertible and more powerful S3 sedan will arrive in the fall of 2014. This week I had a chance to drive both the convertible and S3 in Monte Carlo, a full year ahead of their introduction here. I suspect the real reason to have a media event so far in advance is to give the buying public some insight and possibly delay buying a competitor’s car. Audi is one of the fastest growing premium brands and a big part of that is the variety of cars they offer. Unfortunately, we will no longer get the sportback, but the fact we get the rest of the line of A3s is exciting for buyers.

Looks The A3 is built off a shared of the quietest on the market because of a special layer of sound insulation. platform with VW called MQB.

lours, plus an optional diamond pattern stitch can be ordered to take the sporty sedan to another level. I found the seating position very comfortable and outward visibility is not a problem. The Cabriolet seats are fitted with a heater that showers the front passengers with warm air across their shoulders and neck for top-down stints. The weather in Monte Carlo was perfect for the convertible – the sun was shining off the Mediterranean, showcasing this car of opulence at a more affordable price. Drive The Canadian models have not fully been nailed down, as there is still a year to go until the Cabrio and S3 arrive. What is established is the convertible will come with the all-new 2.0L direct injection turbo with 220hp, matched to Audi’s Quattro all-wheeldrive system. A six-speed automatic is confirmed but the duel-clutch S-Tronic transmission might be sold as an option in this model. There will be no manual shift and no diesel, which is a shame, as I drove one of the European versions with this setup and it was superb. The S3 comes standard with a 300hp version of the same 2.0L engine and the duel clutch automatic, and of course, AWD. It’s not as powerful as the 355hp Mercedes CLA 45 AMG, but I feel it has more usable power.

drivewayBC.ca The all-new Audi A3 sedan arrives in March 2014 and the convertible in the fall continued from page X

The CLA gets peak horsepower at very high revs, whereas this new S3 pulls from very low speeds up to higher speeds. I experienced this carving the switchback mountain roads just above Monaco. Power is not an issue; I would argue that the S3 is a better everyday car compared to the more nervous feeling AMG competitor. The suspension is more compliant and the power is a perfect combination of drivability and enthusiasm. At the end of our day I sat next to Florian Uselt, Audi’s head of small engine development, and I asked why they did not decide to chase the horsepower rating of 355hp from the Mercedes CLA AMG. His answer makes sense and

was confirmed in the way the S3 behaves. He feels that everyday drivability and performance need to be balanced and they look at the car as a whole, meaning the environmental impact and fuel consumption as other targets, not just power. Audi claims a 0-100km/h run will take just 4.9 seconds in the S3 and use a combined 6.9L/100km (European fuel rating). Verdict It is going to be an exciting time to be in the market for an entry-level premium car over the next year. The A3 Cabriolet and S3 confirm that good things do come in small packages. Pricing has not been established for the Cabrio but it was hinted that this model would be roughly the same price as the S3, which has been confirmed at $44,000,

roughly $6,000 cheaper than the CLA AMG. The base A3 sedan will arrive in a few short months with a 1.8L turbo gasoline engine, an optional TDI diesel and the same 2.0L turbo found in the Cabrio. The S3 really is the sweet spot for drivers that want to have extra power but with a very compliant and comfortable ride. The combination of usable trunk space and back seat, simple yet elegant dash, power the driver can use at a lower price than the competition, is something potential buyer might want to wait a year to try first hand. The Lowdown Power: 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 220hp or 300hp. Fill-up: 6.9L/100km (combined). Sticker price: $44,000 for S3 zack.spencer@ddrivewayBC.ca

Hitch up those snowplows, the white stuff is flying I know I wrote about winter driving last week and the snow and rain began to fall in various parts of the province but please don’t blame me for this first blast of chilly weather. I’m here to help and at the risk of bringing on a blizzard, I thought I would share some information on snow plows. For most people who are just using a plow for clearing their own driveway, a straight-blade will more than likely be just fine. Snowsport offers a personal plow that is perfect for the

attaches to a front mounted receiver just as a boat trailer would. The U shaped bracket is connected to the receiver and the snow blade rides up and down on these bars to allow for change in the terrain your plowing. Because there are no hydraulics involved, all you do is back up and the snow blade lies back skimming over the surface. When driving forward the blade automatically re-engages for plowing. When you are finished, lift the blade back over the push frame into the transport position. The cost of this option is $1,644. K2 is another brand of snowplow designed for the homeowner with acreage. Designed to work with a front receiver hitch, just like the Snowsport, it simply slides in the receiver and locks in place with a hitch lock.

K2 snowplow The winch is controlled from inside the cab and will raise or lower the height of the blade. The blade comes with a hardened steel cutting edge scraper, rubber snow deflector, skid shoes, and plow markers. It is available in 82”, 84”, and 88” lengths. Cost is $1,315. If you use a plow to make money, then you will want to be able to do the job quickly and efficiently, so you may want to go

with the multi-position. Multi-position plows are up to 50 per cent faster due to the fact that you can reposition the blades to all straight-blade positions in addition to the scoop and V positions. \ This makes the plow adaptable to nearly any job you need to do. When it comes to the composition of the blade you have the choice between steel and poly. The vast majority of snow-

plows on the market today come with steel blades, although the poly plows are becoming more and more popular. The reason for the growing popularity is that poly is just as strong as steel and maybe stronger. They also have a lower coefficient of friction, which saves on fuel costs and is easier on your vehicle. The poly plows are also saturated with colour all the way through so nicks

four times brighter than standard halogen bulbs and also last ten times as long. Hydraulics is probably the most important part of the plow, along with the controls. Be sure that the hydraulics system is dependable and the controls are simple and easy to use. Go for quality rather than trying to save a buck. Remember “you get what you pay for” definitely applies here. Cost for these

and scratches do not show like they do with steel, plus they do not rust. Attaching and detaching the plow is very important as well. You do not want to be freezing and trying to deal with getting a blade on and off your truck. Try the attachment system for yourself at the dealer so you can see firsthand how easy or difficult it is to use. Most snowplow makers use a single halogen light bulb, which are not bright enough; some makers have come out with dual halogen bulbs with the option of upgrading to High Intensity Discharge. These HID lights are

units are $6,000 to $8,000 depending on the model. When it comes to the warranty, be sure to know exactly what you are getting and what the warranty covers. Some only cover parts, while others cover parts and labor. Warranties are usually either one year or two years; so pay attention to the warranty. Take all of these things into consideration when shopping for a snowplow and you will be able to choose the right one to suit your needs. ian.harwood@drivewaybc. ca

Why women can negotiate a better car deal

Bentley sofa

My other sofa is a Bentley Yes, yes, you are wondering what a picture four-seat sofa is doing in Driveway. Well, it is a Bentley after all. The new Bentley Home collection is inspired by the renowned craftsmanship and exquisite materials that

characterise the interiors of all Bentley models. The bodies of the new Richmond pieces are created with an embracing double shell that can be covered in either leather or a fine veneer of burr walnut. The

same wide selection of veneers, which is available for Bentley car customers, is also available for most pieces in the collection. The wood is then carefully matched to a padded structure covered in a light

cashmere The colour palette is composed of varying neutral tones of ivory and taupe matched with shades of beige and cream. Intricate details such as the leather braid around the contours highlight the soft and sinuous lines. The iconic quilted diamond pattern embossed in the leather interiors of a Bentley has also been interpreted into the unique designs of the furniture.

For many people, buying a car is a stressful process. Something worse than going to the dentist or for women, a Brazilian waxing. Ouch. It can be a lengthy one too. Furthermore, it doesn’t always start by going from dealership to dealership. In fact, most people have access to the Internet, so they’re doing their research beforehand, prior to even leaving their home and finding themselves on a dealer lot, or with glossy brochures in hand. They look at various vehicle reviews, flip through newspapers (like the one you’re reading now) and ask other car owner’s opinions. When they get to the dealership, that’s when it becomes real. You take the car for a test drive, fall in love with it or walk away from it. When you find “the one” then comes the time to sign on the dotted line. But before you seal the deal, it’s time to negotiate, unless you’re happy with the price given. For women, this can be an even more intimidating process.

‘‘

(Women) aren’t always in a hurry to buy right then and there

’’

Alexandra Straub

Getting through the dealer’s door is just the first hurdle they feel they have to overcome. But for Vijay Jeyapalan, of Unhaggle (www.unhaggle. com), which helps Canadian car buyers get the best price on their new car by getting dealers to compete to offer the lowest price —he’d argue that women are better negotiators than men; an idea that challenges societal norms when it comes to car buying. Jeyapalan says, “Before stepping into the showroom or test-driving a vehicle, most women are recognized to have done their homework and pre-purchase preparations.

This advantage allows them to properly assess what they want upon arrival and ask the necessary questions to advance the car buying process.” His point centres on the notion that when you know less, you prepare more. With all the tools out there, it’s not as difficult or as time-consuming as it has been in the past. Sites dedicated to women and automobiles are there to assist, as well as female car reviews, lifestyle writers, mommy bloggers and more. He adds that women don’t mind shopping around, browsing at various products, taking the information and then contemplating it. They aren’t always in a hurry to buy right then and there. “Many are convinced that the forceful tactics men use during negotiations are actually working against them in car buying situations.  “Men tend to focus on status and act upon superiority, which is a poor way of negotiating. “While the man says, ‘Take it or leave it,’ the woman might be more collaborative and willing to compromise—thus making them better negotiators. “Listening is the key, not aggression and intimidation.” He goes on to say that, “Women understand that a common ground is usually the best platform for a fair negotiation. “Empathy plays a large role in that regards. Being able to view the situation from another person’s perspective doesn’t necessarily create an advantage, but it does allow the person to understand why they aren’t getting the upper hand.” Statistics show that more women are making car purchases that ever before. Granted they might not be experts when they walk in the door, but they generally know what they want. “The image of a damsel lost in a showroom, if it ever actually existed, is no longer something salespeople will see.” alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Driving to cut Big Oil profits They should just call the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan the Gas Miser. The car is here for market testing right now but surely, it will see production next year and arrive in dealerships later in the year. And when it does sell your shares in Big Oil. It only sips gas by the spoonful; how else do you account for an easily achievable 4.1 L/100km combined city/highway fuel economy rating? Drive gently around town and you can purr along in all-electric mode for between 20 and 28 kms depending on road conditions. You won’t achieve that all at once, unless it’s the dead of night on a flat road, without any other traffic and green lights all the way. However, it is estimated that if you achieve that 20plus all-electric ride during a 100 km journey, the power unit will consume electricity/gasoline at an equivalency of around 1.6 L/100km. In truth, it’s hard to put a real life meaning into that number but it is useful when comparing with other similarly equipped cars. But when you look at that number and the low gas/hybrid combined fuel performance, which enables you to journey 800 kilometres

on one tank, it does plant the notion in one’s head that plug-in hybrids are the way to go for a while before we reach hydrogen fuel cell nirvana. The car is powered by Honda’s first two-motor hybrid system, and uses a new, delightfully named, Earth Dreams 2.0 litre i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine producing 137 horsepower, teamed with a powerful 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor. Electric driving is supported by a 6.7 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, and total system output is 196 horsepower. If your eyes glazed over at the obligatory statement of power unit specifications, join the club! Fuel economy interests me more. Like every other car with

OK

Honda Hybrid Sedan green aspirations that I have driven, it coaxed me into a little competition with myself every time out to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. It’s fun to select EV mode and pull away in the morning in silence, operating as a pure electric vehicle. Even in stop and go traffic, it works well, the regenerative braking keeps topping up the battery. As the speedo creeps up the gas engine kicks in quietly and smoothly. If you select HV mode it operates as a conventional hybrid.

infrequent need to visit the pump. The plug in Toyota Prius is another contender for the green dollar. The Ford is probably the nearest

Chevy Camaro is a New World collaboration The 2010 model year Chevrolet Camaro was designed in the USA, engineered in Australia and built in Canada. In addition to a very attractive return-to-roots styling exercise, this Camaro boasts a sophisticated rear-

drive chassis, two powerful engine choices and lots more. Initially, the new Camaro came in LS, LT and SS trim levels. The base engine is a Cadillac sourced direct-injection 3.6-litre V6. It can generate 304 horsepower

and is mated to either a sixspeed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. A more potent 6.2-litre V8 engine (from the Corvette) lies under the hood of the SS. When paired with a six-speed manual it can pump out 425 horsepower.

A 400 horsepower edition of this engine, with a fuel saving cylinder deactivation system, came paired to the optional six-speed automatic transmission. Chevrolet claimed the Camaro V6 can reach 100 km/hour in just 6.1 seconds

rated at 11.4 L/100km in city and 6.7 L/100km on highway. And the SS (auto) is rated at 13.2 L/100km in city and 7.9 L/100km on highway. Compared to the original ‘67 this Camaro is longer, wider and taller. Bigger

and SS can do it in a tire blistering 4.7 seconds, which is super-car territory. Fuel consumption is also less (or better) than you might expect and both engines can run on regular gasoline. The Camaro V6 (auto) is

wheels, which came in 18-inch to 21-inch rim sizes, accounted for much of the height increase. Regardless of the rim size originally ordered, the overall height and tire-to-body gap remained the same, so that it doesn’t detract from the overall look of the car. A major difference between Chevrolet’s Camaro and, its rival, the Ford Mustang is the rear axle and suspension setup. Mustang has a rigid rear axle and the Camaro uses a more sophisticated independent link system with coil springs attached to an isolated sub-frame. It should result in a better riding and handling car, but that debate rolls on. A driving drawback that’s common to many sports cars is rear visibility and small side mirrors don’t help matters. The Camaro’s trunk is also on the small side but all is forgiven when you step on the gas pedal and hit the road. A Camaro Convertible was introduced for the 2011 model year. Other significant changes included an eight-horsepower output increase for the base 3.6-litre V6 and a “Head-Up” dash display was offered (on 2LT and SS trim levels). The base engine was also upgraded to a new “LFX” 3.6-litre, V6. Although its displacement is the same as the original, this new engine is lighter and more powerful. A limited edition high-performance Camaro ZL1 arrived in 2012. This car has a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine that can produce an insane 580 horsepower …and is collector car certainty. A special 45th Anniversary Package was also offered on Camaro and Camaro SS. The Chevrolet Camaro made it on the Consumer Reports “Recommended’ list of good, reliable cars to

Our loving Mother went home to be with her Lord and will be sadly missed. She is survived by her two daughters, Karen and Barbara Stiewe of Kelowna, BC, who were at her side until her last breath at Kelowna’s Hospice House. Wally was a cancer survivor for seven years until it returned undetected and quickly claimed her life. Born in Kronau, Ukraine in 1930 to parents Olga and Woldemar Dohl during the reign of Stalin, she endured and survived many hardships and losses and immigrated to Vancouver, BC in 1951 with her only surviving family member, mother Olga Dohl (nee Dieno). She married Franz (Frank) Stiewe in 1952, who predeceased her 4 years ago, after 57 years of marriage. Wally and her husband bought their first orchard in Osoyoos, BC in 1962. There was no water until the well was dug and only the basic amenities of home grown food and shelter. They continued in the orcharding business until retirement and relocated to Kelowna in 1997 to be close to their daughters. Wally will be remembered for her hard work ethic labouring in the fields long after others were too tired to carry on. She celebrated all that could be celebrated in life and wrote many poems for special occasions. She loved to sing in accompaniment to her husband’s accordian and continued to sing through to her final days. Gardening and cooking were also her passion. She spent most of her life caretaking others, always making them a priority over her own needs. She will also be remembered for her volunteer work for the Kidney Foundation and other organizations. Thanks to the Palliative Home Care Support Team with very special thanks to nurse Corinne. Thanks also to Dr. Penner and nurses Rachel and Boel at Kelowna’s Hospice House. Thank you to Pastor Patricia Giannelia at Christ Lutheran Church for her support.

Housing prices Avoid a tragedy due to accidential fire remaining flat ▼ CHRISTMAS SEASON

It’s the Christmas holiday season, our most treasured time of the year. It’s a time of celebration, joy and sharing time with family and friends. Unfortunately, this important time can also be one marked by tragedy if precautions are not taken against accidental fire. According to the Canadian Safety Council, every year about 400 Canadians lose their lives in an accidental household fire. In fact, it’s during the holiday season that the number of deaths caused by accidental household fires is at its highest. Patrice De Luca, vice-

president of marketing and business development for Reliance Protectron Security Services, says the major culprit for this

significant increase is the famed Christmas tree. “You need to take every possible precaution to minimize the risks

of fire, especially if you choose a natural tree,” he added. Here are safety tips to consider from Protectron’s free “Saving Lives Program:” • If possible, consider an artificial tree. They are much safer and cleaner. • Leave the tree outside until you’re ready to decorate. • The tree stand should hold at least 1 gallon of water. It’s crucial to check the water level every day. • Detectors for smoke and carbon monoxide should be installed at strategic locations— your kitchen, stairwell, bedroom hallways and

other high-traffic household areas. • Keep the tree away from floor heaters, fireplaces, or other heat sources. • Use only CSA-listed lights, and no more than three strands linked together. • Use miniature lights which have cool-burning bulbs. • Turn off the Christmas lights when you sleep, or if you leave your home for very long. Protectron’s “Saving Lives Program” is offered free to families considering home security solutions. More information on the program see www. protectron.com.

Take the steps to protect your assets In our many years in the financial industry, it’s hard to believe there are so many people who have not taken any measures to protect their assets. So let’s take stock of what we have and what we can do to protect them. VEHICLES

These assets are important to us as we need them to drive to and from work, run errands and take our children to sporting events. In order for us to get behind the wheel, we need insurance to protect us in the event of an accident, fire, theft and ensure that if anything does happen to that asset we are covered. We go to our local insurance agents and they do their job by giving us options to best protect

ourselves.

RENTING A HOME

As a renter, you must protect yourself against fire and theft to replace those articles that can be damaged by fire and theft. Again, an insurance agent can give you advice on the most appropriate coverage

HOMEOWNERS

It is imperative to take out home insurance on your building, contents and liability insurance in the event of possibility of a suit should someone, other than the homeowners, injure themselves on your property.

MONEY

When investing your funds in a financial institution, make sure

there is deposit insurance in place to protect our savings and retirement funds. Your financial institution will be able to explain fully the amount of funds that are protected by deposit insurance. LIFE INSURANCE

One of the most important insurance policies we can have is life insurance. By taking out a policy your surviving spouse and children will be taken care of in the event of your passing away. A WILL

In conversations with clients, it’s hard to fathom how many do not have a will. This is one of the most important things that a person should have.

A will points out who your assets go to and how they are divided in a clear and concise manner. It is even more imperative to have a will when a couple is married and start a family. Should you have any questions regarding the above, or any questions regarding mortgage financing, please contact us. You can visit us on Facebook to read about informative topics.

F

or 2013, we have seen increased activity in the Central Okanagan real estate market. With inventory remaining lower than normal coupled with low interest rates, more and more buyers have recently taken the plunge into home ownership. However the common misconception seems to be with activity up, homeowners are under the false impression that sale prices REAL ESTATE are not only stabilizing, RUNDOWN but also increasing. While the sales activity jump has reflected that the real estate market is warming up, sale prices Ceinwen are still continuing to reMorgan main flat. The value of a home is not determined by the attachment of the seller looking back at the fond memories spent raising their family in their home, or by the cost of recent renovations one may have invested. It is determined by the basic model of economics— supply and demand. Supply and demand is perhaps one of the most fundamental concepts of economics and it is the backbone of a market economy. Demand refers to the amount of a product people are willing to buy at a certain price; supply represents how much the market can offer. So if the supply is remaining low, which when compared to last year inventory has decreased overall by 12.84 per cent, then the amount buyers are willing to pay is less. Recently the Fitch Rating service judged Canada’s housing market as being 21 per cent overpriced, while that the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s recommendation is that interest rates should be raised within the next year to help balance out the economy and assist with making homeownership more affordable. Canada Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has warned of this in his release of his fall economic and fiscal update. “We have to watch out for bubbles, always, in markets around the world, including our own Canadian residential real estate market. I have intervened four times in the last several years and I’ll intervene again if I have to,” Flaherty said. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
