Drunk drivers put on alert

Kathy Michaels

STAFF REPORTER

A pair of high speed crashes and another more idle, but equally serious, offence blamed on heavy weekend boozing prompted Mounties to issue a familiar warning. “We are doing some counterattack projects to get impaired drivers off the road,” Const. Kris Clark said Monday. “The unfortunate fact is that people are still driving while impaired and chances of being involved in a crash increase (when that’s the case).” The first drinking related crash happened in Peachland late Saturday, sending three people to hospital and shutting highway traffic down for a significant duration. Mounties attended a multi-vehicle collision in the 6800 block of Highway 97 South just after 11 p.m., where witnesses reportedly saw a Chevy Uplander speeding down the highway and weaving through traffic before smashing into the front of a southbound Toyota Corolla. “The Chevy struck a telephone pole, dislodging it at the base, and See Alert A5

Family Y undergoes change room renovations Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Families using the Kelowna Family Y in Rutland are about to lose their changing room—but the loss will only be temporary. Between now and next June, parents will have to use either the women’s or the men’s change rooms if they want to change with their children. That’s because, as part of the renovation work the

city is about to embark on at the recreation centre, the existing family change room will have to double first as a temporary women’s change room and then as a temporary men’s change room while the work takes place. The city is installing a new concrete floor in the existing women’s change room and once that is installed, the men’s change room will be made smaller to allow for a larger family change room.

Colin Basran “As someone who brings kids for swimming lessons there, I can tell

you more space is definitely needed in the family change room,” said Kelowna city councillor Colin Basran. City officials say while space in the family change room is becoming an issue, a smaller men’s change room will not be a problem. Like the rest of council, Basran welcomed news that the original plan for the Y—to replace the floor of the women’s change room because of

its deteriorating condition and to add a heat pump to reduce the humidity in the boiler room under it that has led to the deteriorating condition of the floor above, will now include revamping all the changing rooms at the Y. City utility and building projects manager Kevin Van Vliet said in addition to the $600,000 that the city is putting into the project and a $250,000 grant from the federal government, the

YMCA has now added another $715,000 for the additional changes to the men’s and family change rooms. The work, which will be done while the Y remains open, is slated to be complete by next June. The city-owned facility, which is run under contract by the YM-YWCA, houses one of the city’s most popular public pools, as well as a fitness centre. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Winery theft turns out to be not all bad news Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

There’s a silver lining to a weekend theft that left a local winery short of $30,000 worth of its most exclusive wines. “Bad things happen in threes, and all three bad things have happened now,” said Walter Huber, owner of Hainle Vineyards which fell victim to thieves Sunday. His unlucky streak started seven years ago when a bottle of 1978 icewine was nicked from a Vancouver wine show. “That was devastating,” said Huber, noting that the bottle was appraised at nearly $1 million. “We couldn’t replace that.” Next there was the 2012 Peachland wildfire that took out a swath of his prized and historic vines—60 per cent of which sprouted new life

this summer. Then, Sunday, came what Huber hopes to be the final hit. Following the promotion of Hainle Vineyards on a Global Okanagan news feature, thieves broke into the cellar and loaded up with $30,000 worth of ice wine, including 1983 and 1984 ice wines that are worth around $18,000. “On Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m., the alarm system went off, so I went over there and looked at it, which took me 15 minutes,” he said. “That means they went through the cellar very quickly between 8:30 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. and stole the ice wine.” It was a fast hit, and Huber thinks thieves should have considered their actions more carefully. “They probably saw the news about exclusive and very rare wines, but

selling them would be a stupid move…they would be caught right away,” he said, noting that the very thing that makes them exclusive would make them difficult to unload. If that means they remain missing, however, Hainle Vineyards will move on. First task on the agenda will be to ramp up security, but Huber won’t shy from the spotlight that may have brought the negative attention his way. “I will still show off (the wines), it’s part of our history in Canada. We were the first ice wine maker,” he said. His vintages are ambassadors for the area, he believes. He already has plans to set Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge up with some bottles by the time he’s of the age to imbibe. And, as for the rest, it just offers the motivation to make more.

Police chase charges at prelim stage The trio at the centre of one of our area’s most high stakes police chases were in a Kelowna courtroom Monday for the start of their preliminary inquiry. Shawn Adam Wysynski, Michael Edward Ellis and Ashley Collins face a series of weapons charges, including at-

tempted murder and possessing prohibited weapons from the July 2012 chase. Witness testimony over the course of the 10-day hearing will determine if there’s enough evidence to proceed to a trial.

ALISTAIR WATERS/CAPITAL NEWS

MATTHEW Naka, who plays centre for the Kelowna Chiefs hockey team, and Robyn Mayr, with her 2 1/2-monthold daughter Kyra, and Newsie , the Capital News mascot, were on hand for the kickoff to the 2012 Salvation Army Christmas Kettle campaign Friday in Kelowna. Also participating are the Kelowna Rockets, who were on the road for an away game.

▼ SALVATION ARMY

Christmas Kettle campaign underway The 2013 Salvation Army Christmas Kettle campaign is underway in Kelowna and West Kelowna. The first of 15 collection kettles around Kelowna and West Kelowna were set up Friday morning outside the Kelowna Walmart store and the number of kettles will

grow to 21 as of Dec. 1 when more pop up outside local B.C. liquor stores, say local Salvation Army officials. According to Maj. Ron Cartmell of the Salvation Army, this year the fundraising goal is $300,000. The money goes to not only helping the Salvation Army’s an-

nual Christmas hamper fund but also supports many of the other community and family programs that the Sally Ann provides year round in the Central Okanagan. On Friday, representatives of the media, local sports teams and local dignitaries took part as volunteer bell ringers,

manning the kettles during the kick-off event. Anyone wanting to volunteer to man a kettle during the season can contact the Salvation Army office in Kelowna. Last year, the local kettle campaign raised $350,000. All the money raised here stays in the community.

Pay it Forward campaign at OC ready for donations A warm coat, winter boots and a toothbrush are everyday items for most people, completely unremarkable in every way. But for many in the Okanagan, they are things that poverty, homelessness and other life circumstances render out of the ordinary. Nine years ago, that sad reality and an encounter with a small and selfless act of giving brought home to Okanagan College alumna Sarah Comba the power of seemingly slight acts of kindness, inspiring her to initiate the college’s Pay it Forward campaign.

While volunteering with the Gospel Mission, an elderly client refused Comba’s offer of two pairs of socks, insisting that Sarah give one of the pairs to someone else in need. “It was one of those unforgettable moments that stay with you for a lifetime,” said Comba. “It showed me the potential ripple effect of change. A small act for one person can be a big thing for someone else, which is the whole idea behind Pay it Forward.” Running until Dec. 6, Pay it Forward volunteers are collecting the follow-

ing much-needed items at the Okanagan College KLO campus for distribution by Kelowna’s Gospel Mission and Inn from the Cold: New or gently used winter coats, winter boots, mittens and toques; new toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo and razors; unwrapped toys for children ages 2 to 16; and baby formula, diapers and jars of food. “The need grows each year because the face of poverty and homelessness in Kelowna is shifting,” Comba said. “There are many working families who

are struggling. They may be able to pay the rent or to heat their home, but not both. They can afford some of life’s necessities, but not all. “I hear each year how Pay it Forward has helped people. For me, that’s part of what keeps me going. It’s an opportunity to connect with the Kelowna community and help people in need. It’s easy to give and it feels good to

do it.” Donations can be dropped off at the College, 1000 KLO Road, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the International Education office (main floor, Centre for Learning) or with Athletics and Recreation (Room A105) in the Student Services Building. For more information, contact Lynn Johnson or Heather Carson at 250-762-5445.

SARAH Comba says the power of seemingly slight acts of kindness inspired her to initiate Okanagan College’s Pay It Forward campaign. CONTRIBUTED

The northern Alberta native explained several decorating tips to keep in mind this holiday season. “First and foremost, pick your colour scheme and stick with it,” said Harris. “Sometimes we’re just layering new Christmas decorations after new Christmas decorations and all of a sudden we feel like we’re in a Christmas store—it’s not really our own house, it’s like Santa Claus has taken over the living room.” The second step, according to Harris, is to mix the old with the new. “In our family it’s all about nostalgia; we try to bring a lot of antiques back into our space. “It’s always great to be

Okanagan connected to the Rockies The success of a new air route involves more than just getting ‘bums in seats’ once or twice a year. That was the under-

lining theme of a full-day Think Tank hosted by the City of Cranbrook Economic Development and Pacific Coastal Airlines on Nov. 20. The goal was to brainstorm on how to make the new Kelowna-Cranbrook air service as vibrant as possible. “We recognize that it

takes the airline, both airports—in this case Kelowna International Airport (YLW) and Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC)—politicians, tourism stakeholders, and the business and education communities to foster and grow the service,” said YLW airport director, Sam Samaddar.

“This is a great model we have established to assist with the launch of a new air service. We saw great response and success when we introduced similar partnerships in Whitehorse with our Air North Service.” Participants from the Thompson Okanagan and the Kootenay Rockies regions met in three, roundtable discussions focused on tourism, education and economic development. “Participating in this event in Cranbrook to support the Pacific Coastal service identified that we each have two unique regions that are now much more accessible—in just 50 minutes rather than a six-hour drive which is the only other direct option,” said Samaddar.

Over the next six months, efforts will be made to develop more brand awareness in both regions and work on cross promotion. The regional stakeholders and Pacific Coastal Airlines plan to meet again in 2014 to evaluate the campaign. In recognition of the new route launch to Cranbrook, airline network news and analysis web site Anna.Aero identified YLW for two industry awards: Route of the Week, an enterprise award recognizing new routes of special economic significance to the communities served; and the Arch of Triumph, for the best route launch fire truck water arch conducted by YLW’s airport operations specialists/firefighters.

Two Kelowna men fall victim to fashion Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Red stilettos may make a festive statement at area nightclubs, but a weekend smash-up indicates more sensible shoes may be called for when the party winds down. Const. Kris Clark says Mounties responded to a report that two men had been hit by a car while standing in front of Sapphire Nightclub, at 1:38 a.m. Saturday. “A grey Honda Civic drove up onto the curb right near the entrance to the club and into a crowd of people standing outside,” Clark said. “A 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old man suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash but it was certainly fortunate that more were not injured.” The woman behind the wheel, a 28-year-old from Kelowna, was co-operative with police once they arrived, and was not under the influence of alcohol. Nor did she know the two injured parties. Clark surmised, however, that she was unable to properly apply the brake due to the height of her heels.

Performers help raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Fourteen performers put on a show for visitors at an event held last weekend to raise funds for the Canadian Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan relief effort. Country musician Melissa Livingstone was recently doing a soundcheck in a local coffee shop when event organizer James Blonde asked her if she’d be interested

in playing. “I didn’t even know this (fundraiser) was going on. Then I heard about it and I (thought): I’d love to be part of that—I’d love to be able to help people in another country,” said Livingstone, whose new album is set to release Friday. Revolution Events organized Saturday’s fundraiser, which took place from 2 to 9 p.m. Blonde, who is co-founder of Revolution Events, said

Rutland Hospital Auxiliary makes $250,000 donation The Rutland Hospital Auxiliary celebrated its 50th anniversary in style Friday by making a donation of $250,000 to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation. The money, raised from proceeds from the auxiliary’s thrift shop at 140 Dougall Road in Rutland, will go towards outfitting the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre at KGH. Heather Merrick said the donation is halfway towards the auxiliary’s goal of raising $500,000 to help equip the heart and surgical centre. “It’s very thrilling for us to be able to make this donation,” Merrick said. “This auxiliary began in 1963 and to see it build and build over those years since to this level is a huge accomplishment for all the auxiliary volunteers and the community supporting us.” Merrick said the thrift shop was started in the old Corner Pin bowling alley on Rutland Road, which has since been torn down, and subsequently moved twice prior to being established at the Dougall location. “We have outgrown where we are now as we have more items to sell than we have space to display them, and parking is always an issue for us,” Merrick explained. “We could easily go bigger if the right opportunity were to come along.” Sean Pihl, a Kelowna lawyer and chair of the KGH Foundation board, said the Rutland auxiliary’s first donation to KGH was $177.68, which in today’s dollars would amount to $870. “To go from that to $250,000 represents an increase in productivity that even a Bill Gates or Warren Buffet could learn something from,” Pihl said. Pihl congratulated the auxiliary for raising $3.5 million during it 50-year history, a reflection of the sense of community that the City of Kelowna has always represented to him. Pihl said he grew up in Kelowna, citing that Ben Lee, a former Kelowna city council member and longtime supporter of the Rutland Hospital Auxiliary, was his Grade 8 art teacher at Dr. Knox school. “There has been a great sense of community here that has existed since I moved here back in 1972,” Phil said. “And it is organizations like the Rutland Auxiliary that create that sense of community.” He said the heart and surgical centre will be able to provide operations for local residents who otherwise would face a trip to a Vancouver hospital for those procedures. “It is important to be in your own home, near the people you love, in those situations. And it only becomes possible to meet that goal through the contributions that come from the volunteer effort of organizations like the Rutland Hospital Auxiliary.” Ken Burrows, former chief operating officer for the Okanagan Health Service area who is now retired and serves as an Interior Health board member, said: “The Rutland Auxiliary has put caring for other people first.”

Storybook ending to Grey Cup

R

egina’s Mosaic Stadium was turned into a sea of green on Sunday as their beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders trounced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 45-23 to win the 2013 Grey Cup. Hamilton never had a chance, from the moment they stepped on the field and saw themselves surrounded by the green wave in the stands, the odds were stacked against them. Although Grey Cup tickets are distributed to all the Canadian Football League teams, it appears very few non-Rough-

rider fans opted to make the trip to the heart of the prairies. Perhaps the onset of winter had something to do with that. There were a few brave TiCat fans in the stands, bolstered by the appearance of Hamilton native comedian Martin Short and his Hollywood buddy Tom Hanks. But they were vastly outnumbered While the saga of the Roughriders is truly a feel-good story, no longer will they be underdogs of the CFL. The ‘Riders are well on their way to becoming the Dallas Cowboys of the

NFL, the team everyone loves to beat. In 1986, the Roughriders held a ticket-selling telethon to raise enough capital to get through the season, a fundraising scheme that was repeated again in 1997. The team was horrible on the field in those lean years and didn’t have the resources to compete with the bigger market teams, but the fans stuck with them. Rider Nation was about winning but standing behind their team and their province. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are now the CFL’s most

important franchise, driving merchandise sales and TV ratings. But while Saskatchewan and their fans delivered the storybook ending to this year’s Grey Cup, ultimately the story never ends, it just continues with the demand for each chapter hoping to be better than the last. Savour the underdog label one for this season, Rider Nation, because after putting on great show at the Grey Cup, for the rest of us cheering for the ‘Riders is about to turn to disparaging envy next season.

Carbon neutral scheme is sinking

T

wo days after Energy Minister Bill Bennett announced the demise of the Pacific Carbon Trust, the public accounts committee convened at the legislature to pound a few more nails into its carbon-sequestering coffin. Assistant Auditor General Morris Sydor was there to defend his report from last March that concluded the B.C. government was not “carbon neutral” in 2010, because the trust paid $6 million for hastily arranged offset projects that were not valid. An Encana Corp. gas flaring reduction project at Fort Nelson and a forest preserve in the Kootenays would have proceeded without assistance from $25 a tonne carbon fee im-

posed on hospitals, universities, colleges and until last year, school districts. In fact they did proceed without this subsidy. The government continues to deny this, but not many people outside the international carbon offset sales racket believe them. The Pacific Carbon Trust’s functions will continue, Bennett said. Instead of a board of directors and 18 staff, five people headed by an assistant deputy minister will evaluate projects and bestow millions taken from college, university and health author-

ity budgets each year. B.C.’s school districts are still paying $5 million a year to offset such nefarious activities as heating their schools. But now the Tom money goes into a Fletcher “Carbon Neutral Capital Program,” and districts have to apply to get their money back for emission-reducing projects. This is going so well, according to Bennett, that post-secondary institutions and health authorities will be converted to a similar program in the years ahead. How is that school program go-

VICTORIA VIEWS

ing? Here are some examples. The Coast Mountains School District around Terrace paid $66,452 for carbon offsets last year. It got back most of its three years of offset payments as a grant to complete a boiler upgrade for its Kitimat high school. Abbotsford and Nanaimo school districts each have to pay about $100,000 a year. They got money back for school boiler upgrades as well, although local school officials say that would not likely have been the top priority for spending, if it hadn’t been for the program that forces districts to spend grants immediately on emission reduction. Surrey school district paid out $585,000 last year, and also upgraded

boilers. Vancouver’s pitch this year was for three electric cars. Leaving aside the distortion of spending priorities caused by this restrictive tax-and-spend scheme, what happens when they run out of boilers to upgrade? And has it occurred to the government’s “carbon neutral” braintrust that those new boilers are still burning natural gas? This program is about to be foisted onto universities and hospitals. Does anyone actually believe that heating hospitals and college classrooms is a key driver of global warming? Presumably our carbon czars know that 40 per cent of B.C.’s huSee Fletcher A9

LETTERS

Unfair portrait painted of B.C. hunters To the editor: It is quite clear that Barry Brandow was remiss in his letter to the editor of how “poorly” the province’s wildlife resources are being managed (Capital News, Nov. 22, B.C.’s Wildlife Resources Not Helped With New Rules). As a proud sustenance hunter from Kelowna, I take exception to this attack on the province’s management of wildlife and resident hunters in general. I’m not sure if Mr. Brandow relayed this misinformation on purpose or whether it was due to poor research on his part. In saying that, I would like

to convey to the readers that the facts show wildlife in our province is being managed reasonably well and that hunting is not decimating the wildlife populations. Although I do agree that access to the wilderness is now easier than in the past, partly due to the advent of quads, a number of his points are quite erroneous, including but not limited to his following statements in his letter. “That wildlife populations are in serious decline.” A quick read of biology websites and wildlife articles in hunting magazines show the opposite, with the exception of moose in the north

where the mountain pine beetle has killed much of the pine forests in that area. The wild ungulate population is quite healthy overall and news stories of human versus deer conflict are becoming quite common due to the increase in deer populations, “Hard winters challenge the wildlife.” Climate data shows that the majority of the winters in the past 20 years have been quite mild in comparison to those of the 1970s and ’80s, “That selling resident hunting licences is more important than prudent wildlife management.” The number of resident hunters

in British Columbia has significantly decreased since 1981 even though the population has grown. Hunter numbers have decreased so much that the provincial government is now implementing programs in an effort to get more people into hunting. Also, a percentage of every hunting licence sold in B.C. goes toward provincial conservation programs. It should be noted that most resident hunters are conservationists and deeply respect nature and the wild animals they revere. Kevin Hamilton, Kelowna

Don’t beat down a visionary project To the editor: After reading your cover story in the Nov. 21 Capital News edition about the Kelowna Mountain development, as the guy who came in (a distant) third in the last civic mayoral elections, I figured I’d throw in my two cents worth of opinion. First, I would like to clarify that I am not a shareholder or investor of any sort in this project. My only perspective is what I have observed with my own two eyes. I would like to start by saying that I personally think Kelowna is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and that we have assets that other cities could only dream of. The lake, the mountains and the climate—in fact, it’s apparent to me that Kelowna’s “destina-

tion tourism” offerings are the lifeblood of our community, and should be enhanced and expanded upon as much as possible. This is also, however, where it’s my opinion that we could improve ourselves big-time. What we currently have to offer the many visitors to our beautiful city, in my opinion, needs help. In the summer, we have the beaches, the H20 aquatic centre, golfing and Scandia. In the winter, we have Big White ski hill, the H20 centre and Scandia. Other than some smaller exceptions, that’s pretty much it. Now along comes this Mark Consiglio character who tries to change all that. In fact, what it looks

to me like he’s trying to do is make lemonade (i.e. a world class, visionary, community enhancing development) out of lemons (i.e a fire devastated, uninhabitable mountain eyesore.) In fact, this Consiglio character has the nerve to try to offer our tourists the opportunity to tread on gigantic suspension bridges, to come and see a massive sundial, to sit in a cave with a waterfall and a chandelier on the roof, to go snowboarding, to watch concerts while overlooking our gorgeous lake and on and on—hang on, I think maybe I will invest. For my two cents worth, guys like this Consiglio character don’t come along every day. Guys with this kind of vision don’t come along

Prescription air miles and loyalty points are at risk To the editor: British Columbians are at risk of losing their air miles/loyalty points on prescriptions—the ‘Loyalty Points Police’ are at it once again. The College of Pharmacists board raised the issue of no loyalty points for prescriptions just prior to the May 2013 provincial election. However, they backed off knowing there would be no support from the health minister prior to the election. Subsequent to the election, the college board (12 members only) had voted and passed their own bylaw, which would effectively take away bonus or loyalty points from every British Columbian who collects them when purchasing prescriptions.

How can that be? They say it is unprofessional and unethical to allow loyalty points on prescriptions. I have written B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake on this issue. The response I received (on his behalf) said that the ministry was not a party to the college board’s decision. The letter went on to say “the ministry will have 60 days after the College Board files its bylaw amendments to review the changes before they come into force automatically in accordance with the legislation, to ensure the changes are consistent with the authority of the College…” The college filed its new bylaw on Oct. 3, so people must act quickly. Email or write Terry

Lake at hlth.minister@ gov.bc.ca and Premier@ gov.bc.ca as well as your MLA and let them know how you feel about the college’s interference. The words “into force automatically” are alarming to me as they should be to every British Columbian. We do not want to hear our premier or the health minister say that there is nothing they can do. Perhaps these regulatory bodies need set parameters—ie., how far reaching their authority should be. This really has nothing to do with professionalism or ethics. I believe it is simply selfserving on the part of the college board. So much for free enterprise in B.C. Alan Baldwin, Vernon

every day. Guys who have the guts to put themselves out there, guys who take chances and try to make things like this happen, don’t come along every day. To me, I think our local politicians should step up and start making some statements about the value to our community a project of this scope and vision brings. This will perhaps keep the bureaucrats and naysayers and sceptics at

bay while he continues to make incredible and truly visionary things happen. And perhaps our local newspapers should be a little more positive in reporting on what has already been accomplished and what can be accomplished with guys like Consiglio and the Kelowna Mountain development. I know I, for one, like what I’m seeing.

Cal Condy, Kelowna

Mismanagement Fletcher from A8 man-generated greenhouse gas emissions are from transportation, and a few electric cars for school district staff aren’t going to change that. And what happens when colleges and hospitals run out of boilers to modernize and insulation to upgrade? It won’t be long at this rate. In hindsight, this “carbon neutral government” scheme is perhaps the worst single idea implemented in 12 years of B.C. Liberal government. Gordon Campbell’s grand vision of a province

where government sets the green standard and the private sector economy follows has simply not worked. The NDP presented a motion in April 2012 to relieve hospitals, colleges and universities of their carbon offset obligation. The idea was supported by a B.C. Liberal backbencher, who argued that B.C. should also scrap the carbon tax and quit pretending it can change the climate. His name? Bill Bennett.

Farmers want to connect with business Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Even as they listened to their first presentation as part of the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission’s Agri-Tourism Business Planning program, local farmers found themselves making valuable connections with potential customers and suppliers last Thursday. In sharing their experiences and plans to move into agri-tourism with the five other farmers in this year’s four-month program, each picked up ideas or learned lessons

from the others. The intent, explains COED business enhancement specialist Tracey Fredrickson, is to help traditional farm operators to develop the business planning skills needed to move into agri-tourism, which will help them derive more value from their land. Included also during the four-month program will be one-on-one coaching and mentoring in preparation of a business plan as well as presentations from industry experts in such areas as tourism, zoning and land use regulations, marketing, fi-

nancial management and insurance. Thursday’s presenters were Jesse Croy, executive chef at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, and Tourism Kelowna CEO Nancy Cameron, both of whom talked about making the Farm to Table connection. Tourism Kelowna’s Farm to Table program includes promoting tours of local farm and food operations, with a brochure and map guiding people to both producers and to restaurants who make use of those, and other local products, to complete the circle for visitors.

Such cross-promotion in recent years has proven to be very popular, said Cameron. “Our mandate is to get customers to your doors. We promote what you do. There’s great value in agri-tourism; it’s all trending up. There’s a new value set to who we are in North America. You make it real to consumers,” she explained. She said it’s the third highest job-producer in this area, up 5.8 per cent in the five years to the end of 2011, bringing in $176 million in direct wages. Catherine Frechette, communications manager for Tourism Kelowna, said Kelowna is a hotbed for Farm to Table cross-promotion. “All your stories add to the interest in this destination,” she advised. “There’s a hunger out there to come to Kelowna for Farm to Table food. It’s a tourist attraction. It’s like a tidal wave and we’re set to run with it.” Croy agreed and said visitors and locals alike expect local, organic, excellent food and to provide that, chefs need farmers to grow that food, and to share their stories so chefs can pass those on to customers. Many farmers provide a ‘fresh sheet’ online for chefs to order from, to keep their offerings seasonal and local. “Some farmers grow 80 per cent of their production for me,” he added.

“We have to be flexible in our menu creations. My menus are about the vegetables. “They run around the edge of the protein on the plate and vary throughout the year with what’s fresh.” Loretta Cross, of Function Junction, said 40 sous chefs from Mission Hill come out in the spring and help them plant, saving the farm work, but also introducing these chefs to the soil from which their food is grown. “They show up in white pants and expensive boots and get filthy dirty,” she added. Participating in this intake, which runs to February, are: • Mountain Valley Farm in West Kelowna, an established organic produce farm operated by Tom and Denise Cross with the idea of following ‘beyond organic’ principles to grow everything on the farm, including their own fertilizers; • Old Meadows Organic Farm in Kelowna, which is under new ownership and working with local chefs and those interested in u-pick; and looking at aquaponics, says owner Jeff Ricketts; • Function Junction and Double Cross Cidery is an established family farm operated by Loretta and Glenn Cross in Kelowna, which has been diversifying to stay viable.

Free business energy use assessments Some 250 small businesses in the Thompson/Okanagan will benefit from the third round of free energy assessments from the Live Smart BC Business Energy Advisor Program. Funding for the program, which includes free access to a business energy advisor who guides small businesses through identifying and implementing energy efficiency upgrades, runs until March 31, 2014. The province has also opened up the program to small businesses that use up to $200,000 in electricity

annually, a significant increase from the previous limit of $50,000. “Small business is the backbone of our economy, employing more than a million British Columbians. Helping small businesses save money with programs like Live Smart BC goes a long way towards creating more jobs families depend on,” said Premier Christy Clark, MLA for Westside-Kelowna. “We want to support and inform small businesses about the programs, incentives and rebates that are available through Fortis-

BC and BC Hydro to reduce their energy use while being able to improve their bottom lines,” said Caroline Grover, CEO of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce. Kelowna-based GreenStep Solutions has been contracted to deliver the program in the Thompson/Okanagan. The program and support services are provided at no cost to participating small businesses.

Offering a reflection of entrepreneurial gratitude E very year when the Christmas season arrives, I am overwhelmed with moments of powerful reflection— as an entrepreneur, a father, an entrepreneurial leadership advocate and as a grateful member of our Okanagan community, I am thankful. It seems clear to me

Joel Young that it’s always the right time to live life from a

place of gratitude. Let’s enjoy some reflection of what this may mean to each of us at this year end. One of the simplest, yet often overlooked contributors I have discovered, and sometimes overlooked, is the expression of appreciation. Taking the time to say a simple “thank you”

Expressing gratitude is a fundamental quality of conscious leadership and is yet another facet of empathy. It reflects to me our leadership consciousness of natural human desire to be validated and appreciated. Even the most stressful of times in challenging situations and environments may be relaxed through the expression gratitude. John Maxwell, the international leadership author and speaker, thinks so highly of such expressions that he wrote a recent book called Encouragement highlighting the power of expression of gratitude to light the candle in the lives of those around our daily lives. Gratitude, as commonly defined, is a state of being, an emotion. In any given moment, you feel it or you don’t. So is fulfillment available only to those who are naturally disposed to-

Nurturing a strong sense of gratitude allows us to see the good in others and enables us to recognize and seize entrepreneurial opportunities when they arise. In the spirit of Christmas, you might use this chance to express your gratitude and in doing so discover the secret to leading a more fulfilling life as an entrepreneurial citizen of the Okanagan. For me, first off I am thankful for being truly blessed with a soul-filled group of “ inspirers”— men and women who never cease to amaze me with their inner strength and caring. Their steadfast commitment to personal growth, their dedication to fostering growth in others through their own experiences, and their ability to meaningfully connect with those around them gives me immeasurable strength. Such people are a priceless gift to me in my roller coaster ride though life. I am thankful for

the larger entrepreneurial community of the Okanagan and afar—filled with people who see opportunities in place of obstacles, who take ownership of their actions, who are on a never-ending quest of learning and self-improvement and who are committed to making our world a better place, one venture at a time. I am thankful for the ability to give back, and the plethora of wonderful colleagues and associates that have recognized my value, and provide me the opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences with others. Helping others succeed is truly my passion, and the gift of sharing is one that I will forever appreciate and cherish. And I am thankful to all of you dear readers for your loyalty and support as I strive to contribute to the building of an Okanagan entrepreneurial culture.

We can’t force ourselves to feel gratitude, but we can force ourselves to practice gratitude. And practicing gratitude will lead to feeling grateful. We might express such gratitude to honour that one person who changed our life. Give them the thanks they deserve through a unique exercise in gratitude and magnify that thank you in a way that will inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs coming our way in our beloved Okanagan.

Long-time volunteer and local philanthropic leader Terry Flannigan was honoured last Thursday at the United Way’s leadership recognition event, hosted by UBC Okanagan. Flannigan was the 2013 recipient of the Dina and Mel Kotler Humanitarian Award, created in 2008 by ‘Million Dollar Mel’ Kotler as a way to recognize the volunteer efforts of community leaders who have also contributed to the United Way. Dina Kotler presented the award to Flannigan, siting his community contributions that have largely gone “under the radar.” Flannigan started the UBCO campus campaign for United Way during the university’s first year of operations in 2005. Since then, the campus community has raised more than $250,000 for the United Way. He was also instrumental in starting the UBC Athletic Scholarship Breakfast and was chair of the Seniors Games hosted

UBCO deputy vice-chancellor Deborah Buszard, a member of the 2013 United Way campaign cabinet, wanted to host the leadership event on campus as a way to say thank you to donors throughout the region who contribute $1,000 or more to the campaign. In her remarks, Buszard emphasized how the university’s campus community of close to 10,000 people have a responsibility to create a civil and sustainable society for all. “We are so grateful to

UBC Okanagan for their participation in the United Way campaign, and their willingness to open the campus to campaign leaders,” said United Way executive director Marla O’Brien. “It is so impactful for students and community members to come together to learn how each of them are contributing to a healthier Okanagan through the United Way, and to be able to honour Terry with the Dina and Mel Kotler Humanitarian Award in the location where he started the campus campaign is such a fitting tribute.”

amily histories are filled with unique experiences and both parents and siblings have thoughts, ideas and emotions that do not always come together in a beautiful “Brady Bunch” state of cohesiveness. When stress and a health care crisis are added into the mix as they often occur in the elder care process, family dynamics can become strained and emotional meltdowns between siblings and the involved parents can stretch beyond everyone’s ability to cope. Encouraging proactive planning for the possible transitions that may be presented in the 80+ years is something I encourage families to do. Creating an open dialogue as a family about this stage of life can be difficult to begin. Many seniors I speak with are often doing the thinking about these transitioning years themselves and are reluctant to fully include their sons and daughters in their thoughts and planning.

Respecting the lifelong role of a parent caring for their child is a delicate balance to hold dear as caregiving needs increase. I have watched my own family over the past 10 years manoeuvre through this process. Four daughters and one mother all coming together to deal with presenting fractures, moving to a retirement community after 56 years in the same house and finally a move into my own home, has required much patience, flexibility, communication and surrendering for each of us.

perseverance and with the joining of a family, we have all grown and most importantly, our love has seen us through the learning process. The learning is mostly about how to let go of fierce independence and move towards interdependence—which is defined as being mutually reliant on each other. As adult children of a parent who is advancing in age, initiating a family meeting is a good place to start. My siblings and I all got together on Skype to get an understanding of each person’s thoughts and concerns. The key here is to listen and give each member of the family a chance to speak without criticism. Start your discussion with the common ground that you share. Sometimes just agreeing that the discussion will be hard is a good place to start. Choose a moderator if you feel this will help. Let each one share their point of view. Resist the urge to plan a “comeback” or rebuttal. Your brain cannot listen well and prepare to speak at the same time. When it is your turn to speak, describe how you feel, your thoughts, your ideas, and the reasons behind your thought process. Communicate clearly and simply; don’t speak in circles or in code. Move the conversation forward and find some common ground. Make a suggestion and then ask for feedback from the other family members. Check back in by setting up another meeting once everyone has had a chance to digest the conversation. Three good tips to think about when you start the conversation with an aging parent are to: 1. State the issue: “Mom/Dad, all of us are concerned that there may come a time when you will need our help managing your affairs. It would make us feel a lot more comfortable to know what you wanted us to do if you were in a position where you could no longer care for yourself. Keeping peace in the family is important to all of us and we’re concerned that we might have different

opinions about what you would want”. 2. Ask for permission: “Would you be willing to have a discussion and let us know what you would like for us to do? (If there is agreement to meet with you, schedule a time before you finish the conversation.) 3. Try open-ended questions: Think about the areas of concern and prepare your questions ahead of time. Be aware that your parent(s) may have two conflicting needs—the need for independence and the need for assistance. Help them maintain as much decision-making control as possible by asking questions that cannot be answered with a “yes” or “no.” These sentences should start with phrases like: How do you feel about ____? What are your thoughts on______? What would you like to do about___? (Source: Caregiver Solutions Magazine, Vol.14, Issue 4) Starting the family dialogue can also be initiated by the parent. When I see this, it does make my heart sing as the willingness to let go and engage as a family is witnessed. This willingness always enhances the life choices that can be made for the future and avoids the added stress of trying to make decisions in a crisis when emotions are high and options more limited. So whether the parent begins or the child begins, sit down and talk. Look into options. Gather information, because knowledge is power in this journey of navigating the “Golden Years” and working on it together as a family can help redefine independence positively. Looking at my mom’s rosy cheeks when we are having a good laugh as I get her ready for bed each night, and listening to her tell the stories of the day to my sisters on the phone, lets me know that the determination to work it all through has benefited each one of us in a unique way. We have all learned to rely on each other and utilize the strengths that we each can offer to really make caring for mom a family affair. marjorie@caresmart.ca

Q A

Should I consider having a Cohabitation Agreement?

The new Family Law Act came into force in March of this year, and says that you are a spouse if you have lived common-law for at least 2 years or have a child together. This means that you and your partner have much the same property and spousal support rights and obligations as if you were married. A properly drafted Cohabitation Agreement details what you each own going into the relationship and can protect that property if the relationship ends or if your spouse’s creditors want it. The Agreement can also deal with splitting household expenses and chores. Although legal fees to prepare the Agreement can be $1500 or more, without it the fees can quickly exceed$20,000 to battle in Court. Be careful with store bought Do-it-yourself Kits, which may not reflect the new changes in the law.

Q A

Why do I have to wear these hearing aids that sit behind my ear? I want the aid that are invisible.

Hearing aids certainly have come a long way from the ‘big beige bananas’ of 30 years ago. Today hearing aids are available in a wide variety of styles, all of them use very sophisticated computer chips to amplify founds. You are wearing a behind-the-ear (BTE) which is often undetectable when properly fit. But aids can be fit right in your ear and placed down deep in the ear canal. Often what determines which specific style of aid is your is your hearing loss and life style. Some types of hearing loss do best when the aid is placed outside the ear. In-the-canal type can be very small, which can sometimes limit the amount of volume that it can give to you.

Q

My knee has been stiff and sore in the morning for several months now. It aches when I walk and stand too long. Is this Arthritis?

A

Morning stiffness in the knee could be a symptom of arthritic degeneration. It can be confirmed with an x-ray requested by your physician. As we get older, the cartilages in our body tends to become thinner and wears down quicker. This can lead to inflammation in the areas where the two bones come into contact with each other, commonly called Osteoarthritis. Treatments for this condition can include simple knee sleeves or custom fitted knee Orthoses that reopen the joint space and provide pain relief during actitivites. Call our office to book a free consultation with one of our experienced Certified Orthotists if you have these symptoms or any knee concerns at (250) 861-1833.

Also, smaller parts and batteries can make very tiny aids very challenging for people with larger or stiffer fingers.

Q A

How are Custom Foot Orthotics (CFOs) different from orthotics purchased Over-The-Counter (OTC)?

CFOs can only be considered custom if your feet were physically casted with plaster, inserted into a foam box, or scanned electronically. CFOs are also known as functional foot orthotics because they aim to improve and correct your unique biomechanics during walking or running. This is accomplished with a rigid plastic polymer or graphite device. They can also be calibrated to your weight and shoe size. Conversely, OTC orthotics are pre-made devices made with material varying from plastic to cork to foam and designed to be accommodating – minimizing changes to your foot function while providing comfort and protection. They can be a worthwhile, inexpensive investment for those needing less correction. While CFOs are well known to help pronators with flat feet in need of greater arch support, they have also been proven to treat heel and forefoot pain of various causes. By distributing pressure more evenly through the bottom of your foot they can also decrease the likelihood of calluses, nerve pain, and diabetic foot ulcers. Numerous modifications of different materials can also be added to different areas of CFOs to treat corresponding foot ailments.

Q A

When is the best time to list my property?

Our seller client’s ask this question all the time. Of course, most are concerned about maximizing the value of their investment while doing so in a reasonable period of time. There are pros and cons to every season. There are strategic advantages to listing a property during the fall/ winter months.

Most consumers are not aware that the listing inventory is often much lower at this time of year. Another added benefit is that the buyers that are out there are serious. For instance we bought our home in January when I was 9 month’s pregnant. Talk about a motivated buyer! While there may be more buyers come out of hibernation in the spring/summer, just in time to view the many new listings on the market, it is important to keep in mind that as a seller you have more competition. Year to date, OMREB has reported strongest sales in May. This means that strategic sellers listed their properties early in the year to achieve a sale by May. Whenever you decide to list, it is important that you have great representation. For a more detailed monthly statistics visit www.QuincyVrecko.com.

Q

I am anxious just thinking about going to the dentist. I don’t want to be sedated or medicated because I have responsibilities that I need to attend to, like my children. Are there any options for me?

A

Anxiety and the dentist often go hand in hand. For some this has lead to avoidance of the dentist, which leads to suffering. Some “tough it out” and don’t enjoy their visits – this often means they attend infrequently and once again end up suffering. For others it has meant sedation with pills or IV medicines. While sedation does allow for treatment to be delivered, there is a downside. The medications mean a chaperone, more time away from work, an inability to bounce right back into your routine, and the need for someone else to bear the burden of your responsibilities until you recover. There is another option. The world of neuroscience offers us an all-natural alternative. The NuCalm system (www.nucalm. com) uses science to lead the patient into deep relaxation. It presents the brain with an acoustic puzzle (binaural beat track) through headphones. In combination with food based supplements and dark glasses the result is tranquility. Once the procedure is over, the patient is 100% alert and ready to return to their day. Ask for a trial at your next visit. When you are relaxed we can deliver our best care.

Q A

Why does my carpet have dark traffic lanes?

One of the most overlooked reasons for dark or black traffic lanes is footwear transfer. The soles of some slippers or shoes can transfer soil or even the sole material itself onto the carpet fibre causing very obvious traffic lanes. Soles to watch out for include leather, neoprene or foam. To test the sole of your shoe, use a white towel and apply a dab of dish detergent on it, dip it in some water and rub the sole of the shoe applying some pressure. If there is transfer then it may be time for a change. Slippers with a plastic sole or non-marking shoes are better. Socks are a good option too as they are changed often. Traffic lanes can be removed in most cases with a proper professional carpet cleaning. Traffic lanes can be removed in most cases by the OxyDry Ultra Low Moisture carpet cleaning system that dries quickly and is naturally fresh. We include our Durashield Protector ensuring your carpets stay clean up to 3 times longer. OZONE

▼ INTERNATIONAL SERIES

Team WHL vs Team Russia pivotal for a couple of Rockets Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

If this year’s Canadian World Junior hockey team is going to have a Kelowna Rockets flavour, this week’s games between Team WHL and Team Russia, to close out the annual Subway Super Series, will likely be a key factor for two members of the Rockets. Team captain Madison Bowey as well as fellow defenceman Damon Severson will both suit up in two games this week for Team WHL, as the WHL all-stars meet Team Russia twice: In Red Deer on Wednesday night and in Lethbridge on Thursday. The Super Series, in its seventh year, pits all star teams from the three Canadian Hockey League’s (WHL, OHL, QMJHL) against Russia and both teams use the six game series as a warm-up for the World Junior Tournament, this year taking place in Malmo, Sweden. Team QMJHL beat Russia twice to open

the series while Russia bounced back and beat Team OHL 5-2 late last week. Russia played the OHL again Monday before the series switches to the west. For Severson, who took part in the World Junior summer camp, taking part in the Super Series is another chance to show Team Canada officials he is ready for the opportunity. “I just want to make myself known out there, play solid in my own end and when there is an opportunity to create offense, jump on it,” said Severson, a second round draft pick of the New Jersey Devils in 2012. “I want to have a lot of fun and make a great impression on the Hockey Canada staff.” Severson, 19, was on the Hockey Canada radar in what will likely be his final year of junior hockey. The Melville, SK native nearly made the Devils out of training camp and has six goals and 14 assists in 20 games with the Rockets since re-

At 18, he may be a longshot to make Team Canada in what is traditionally

a tournament for 19-yearold players, but the Winnipeg native says he will do whatever he can to show he belongs. “I’m just excited to get the opportunity to play in both games,” said Bowey. “I want to show Hockey Canada staff that I’m good enough to get a chance to play on the team. I just have to play a steady game and not try to do too much out there.” With Bowey and Severson playing Wednesday and Thursday nights, they are also expected to be available on Friday as the Rockets start a two game weekend series with the Kamloops Blazers in Kamloops. The Rockets and Kamloops will also play Saturday night in Kelowna. The Rockets are coming off a 4-1 win over TriCity on Saturday night and have won 10 of its past 11 games. Kamloops will enter the weekend having dropped eight straight games. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

other West Kelowna goal against Vernon. Down 2-0 to Vernon in the second period, Osvzevski notched his first BCHL goal to start the Warriors’ attack. “I feel surreal, actually” Osczevski grinned after the dust had settled. “It’s a really good feel-

ing to get that first goal. I’m not happy with a tie. I think we deserved that win.” The West Kelowna rookie did say it was an important step forward for the Warriors who had struggled to start November with just two wins so far in the month.

“A lot of things went well for us,” Osczevski said. “We did most of the little things well.” On Friday the Warriors were dumped 6-2 at home to Chilliwack. But the tie improved West Kelowna to a fourth place tie with Salmon Arm at 14-9-1-2 in the

tight BCHL Interior. The Warriors are just four points out of first place and three out of second. Another big test is scheduled for Tuesday when West Kelowna plays host to key rival Penticton (15-6-1-3) at Royal LePage Place.

HEAT ATHLETICS/CONTRIBUTED

IN HER third-year with the team, captain Krystle Carpenter (left) scored three tries en route to the shutout of the Brits Saturday as the UBCO Heat women advanced to the rugby championship game.

UBCO womens’ rugby The UBC Okanagan women’s rugby team will play for the B.C. club rugby tier 2 championship after dominating a semifinal game on the frozen tundra of the Mission Sports Fields in Kelowna on Sunday, dismissing the Brit Lions rugby club 43-0. With temperatures hovering around the freezing mark the ground echoed and the tackles landed hard, but the Heat displayed incredible athleticism and power in their shutout. The 43-0 win is the team’s third straight shutout after finishing the regular season with backto-back zeroes, including dropping the Brit squad 68-0 last week in Delta. Two weeks ago they shut down Ridge Meadows 67-0 in Kelowna. Women’s rugby at UBC Okanagan has been

around for three years, but this year is the first where the team is entirely made up of full-time university students, and the inaugural season has been a huge success. “To put our accomplishment this year in context, doing this well in the first year of operation is pretty amazing,” said Okanagan coach Rob O’Brien. “Last year our women did compete in the same division but did it in partnership with the local community who supplied many experienced quality players. We essentially started with a sub-set of the team we had last year and built them into a much more competitive squad.” Heat captain Krystle Carpenter had three tries in the game. “Krystle is a force on the field,” O’Brien said. “She is both a constant of-

fensive threat as well as a punishing defender. However, her importance to the team goes far beyond this. Her teammates would literally go to war for her, because they know she would do the same for them.” Now the Heat will play in the final next weekend against Abbotsford in the Lower Mainland. Abbotsford is the only team to have bested the Heat this season, the 34-12 loss occurring on November 2nd at the CFV Exhibition Park. “We played Abbotsford during a torrential downpour on a very cold day,” O’Brien recalled. “The game was very close at the half, 17-12, and we pressed them into the second half. However, the conditions made passing the ball handling very difficult. We match up reasonably well against Abbotsford. However, I honestly feel we have much more talent in our back three. These assets were neutralized by the weather.” The location and time for the Final of the Tier 2 playoffs is still to be determined. The Heat women’s rugby roster is: Aliyah Rodominski, Angie Williams, Aniko Hawthorn, Chloe Worrall, Christine Dixon, Danielle Fearns, Elora Bascello, Emily O’Connor, Emma Graham, Eunice Punzalan, Hayley Fiebelkorn, Jacqueline Dubreuil, Jasmine Doll, Jessica Sulz, Jordan Pittman, Kelsey Wuerstl, Kristin Vidi, Krystle Carpenter, Lauren Klassen, Maddie Thomsen, Madison Tardif, Marie Martens, Monique Beaulieu, Peng Wen Kuo, Queency Chu, Tachona Jones, Terra Robertson.

Ok Rockets keep pouring it on Chiefs still No. 1 The Okanagan Rockets have established the Capital News Centre in Kelowna as a miserable place to play for opposition teams in the B.C. Major Midget League. The Rockets made it 11 straight victories at home with a sweep of the Cariboo Cougars at the CNC this weekend. On Saturday team captain Branden Wagner scored a pair of goals in the Rockets’ 5-2 victory over the Cougars while Brett Young, Cory Santoro and Carter Hikichi also scored. Reid Kilburn stopped 27 of 29 shots on goal in net to earn the win.

On Sunday the Rockets cruised to a 6-4 victory over the Prince Georgebased Cougars. Linden Hora led the way for the Rockets, scoring two goals in the team’s 15th win of the season. The Rockets welcomed back the BCMML’s leading scoring Tyson Jost who served a one game suspension on Saturday. He delivered a nifty power play goal in the first period. Also adding goals for the Rockets was Mahlon Head, Mark Krabben and Brett Young. Reid Kilburn stopped 18 of 22 shots for his ninth win of the year and the

Rockets improved their home ice record to a perfect 11-0-0 on the season and 15-2-1 on the season. That has the Rockets holding a point lead over Vancouver in the race for the BCMML top spot. Up next for Okanagan is a road trip to Coquitlam as the Okanagan Rockets take on the NE Chiefs. Rockets note: Goalie Kilburn played both games in net on the weekend and will continue to get the bulk of the work as fellow netminder Brenden Barry underwent an emergency appendectomy on Tuesday. He’s expected to be out for at least three weeks.

The Kelowna Chiefs earned three of a possible four points on the weekend to continue with a solid grasp on first place in the KIJHL Okanagan Division The Chiefs saw the return of captain Jordan Salahor on Friday night in a 4-3 win over the Princeton Posse at Rutland Arena. Salahor had been out with an injury since the team’s opening weekend but jumped back into the lineup on Friday night. Kelowna jumped all over Princeton on Friday scoring three times in the first period and adding another in the second to take

a 4-1 lead before Princeton scored twice in the third to make it close. Nick Josephs had two goals and an assist while Nicholas Kovacik and Ryan Baim also scored in the 4-3 win. On Saturday night, the Chiefs traveled to Chase where they held a 1-0 lead after the first period on another goal from Josephs, his 31st of the season in just 24 games. But Chase would score three times in the second to trail 3-1. Kovacik and Jagger Bowles each netted a goal to tie up the game 3-3 and force the overtime period.

This usually happens 12 to 24 hours after ingestion in cats, and 36 to 72 hours post ingestion in dogs. If you suspect that your pet may have ingested ethylene glycol seek veterinary attention immediately. I can’t stress enough how important it is to treat the pet early, before permanent damage will occur. This is not a ‘wait and see’ condition. Unfortunately, waiting in this case could cost you your pet’s life.  When you take your pet to the vet, the vet will perform blood and urine tests to detect the typical changes caused by antifreeze intoxication. The vet will induce vomiting, perform stomach pumping and probably feed the pet with active charcoal to try to decrease further absorption of the poison. The vet will also establish intravenous fluids to increase urine production and excrete as much ethylene glycol as possible.  The treatment of

choice is using the poison antidote. Dogs and cats can only be cured when the poisoning is detected before extensive kidney damage has occurred, hence it so important to rush the pet into the vet’s office. Prevention is the key. Keep your antifreeze on a high shelf in a place not accessible to your pet. Do routine vehicle maintenance and keep an eye out for evidence of leaks (greenish pools underneath your car). In case of spilling that might happen when you refill your vehicle’s reservoir immediately clean up the

spills. Switching to a propylene glycol-based antifreeze, a safer, less toxic, and not sweet chemical, is a good alternative to ethylene glycol. This is one step that many pet owners take to protect their pets from accidental antifreeze poisoning. I hope this winter will be nice, warm and safe for all of the pets and pet lovers out there.

pets. Antifreeze is extremely dangerous to both humans and animals. Cats are about four times more sensitive to the poison than dogs. The intoxication has two phases. About 30 minutes after consuming the antifreeze, the pet will start show symptoms that will look like it has been drinking alcohol—staggering, confusion and disorientation, excessive thirst and urination, vomiting and listlessness. These symptoms last about six hours, and then it will look like the pet is recovering and the symptoms are subsiding. Antifreeze affects mainly the kidneys but also the liver because these are the organs responsible for metabolizing the poison. The phase two of the intoxication is a result of the permanent failure of the kidneys and liver and then the pet will show inability to produce urine and terminal neurological symptoms such as seizures, coma and eventually death.

zon Chernobyl,’ the case is a $27 billion class action lawsuit by 30,000 Ecuadorians living in the Amazon rain forest against the Chevron Corporation for damages caused following the drilling of the Lago Agrio oil field. The plaintiffs claim that their ancestral homeland has been polluted by oil spills, poisoning a vast area of water in the Amazon, adversely affecting the health of the people.  Crude shows interviews from representatives of both sides and examines the influence of media support and celebrity activism, including support from singer-songwriter Sting, a long-time supporter of preserving the Amazon rain forest. Set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, human rights advocacy, multinational corporate power and the rapidly disappearing indigenous cultures, this film presents a complex situation from multiple viewpoints while bringing a story of environmental danger and human suffering into focus.  The progress of the lawsuit during 2006 and 2007 is shown and a prediction is made that there will not be a resolution for another decade without an out-of court settlement.  Admission to the film is by donation.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen Portuguese foods Well, it’s nearly December, and in the coming weeks, it's quite likely you’ll be seeing more visitors than usual; preparing special foods for family and friends over the holidays. It’s good to get the jump on things by preparing whatever you can ahead of time. It’s also a good time to be thinking of special gifts for those on your Christmas list who like to cook, or who do cook anyway. I love books, but cookbooks especially, so my first suggestion would be to look up some of the great offerings in your local bookstore and see if you can match the perfect book to everyone on your list. New out this fall is a book chock full of modernized recipes for Portuguese comfort foods, called Pimentos and Piri Piri, by Carla Azevedo, published by Whitecap Books. She seems to have achieved the impossible by re-creating the flavours of traditional Portuguese recipes, but using ingredients and cooking methods that will be more familiar to Canadian cooks. And, some of those flavours are simply scrumptious. They range from such recipes as Peas and Eggs in Tomato and Red Peppers to Trout Wrapped in Prosciutto with Pine Nut Sauce, from appetizers and soups, to seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables, ending with breads and desserts. For a book that’s a little less exotic, consider picking up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, with about 200 recipes for every time of day and every season of the year, based on what’s available fresh and local, each season.

Christmas Fig Cake Author Carla Azevedo advises that this cake can be made a month ahead of time, kept in the refrigerator, brushed with Aguardente or brandy once a week, so it’s something you can make up now, all ready for the holiday season. 2 tbsp. (30 ml) liquid honey 1/4 c. (60 ml) rye whisky 1/4 c. (60 ml) port 1/4 c. (60 ml) cherry liqueur 1/4 c. (60 ml) Aguardente 1 c. (250 ml) chopped dried figs 1 c. (250 ml) raisins 1 c. (250 ml) chopped candied fruit 1 c. (250 ml) chopped walnuts 2 2/3 c. (660 ml) sugar 1 1/3 c. (330 ml) butter 5 eggs 2 2/3 c. (660 ml) flour 1 tbsp. (15 ml) baking powder 2 tsp. (10 ml) fresh-grated nutmeg sifted icing sugar In a pot over medium-high heat, bring the honey, whisky, port, cherry liqueur and Aguardente or brandy to a boil, then add the figs, raisins, candied fruit and walnuts. Sim-

mer gently for five minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely. Meanwhile, melt the butter and cool. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the sugar and butter until blended. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until the mixture is pale in colour and slightly thickened. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and nutmeg. Beat the flour mixture into the batter until it is blended. Add the fruit mixture and mix well. Spoon into a greased and parchment paper-lined nine-inch tube pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350 F oven for one hour and 15 or 20 minutes or until the top is firm and brown and a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Tent the cake with foil if it is browning too quickly. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely. When cool, wrap well in foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for up two weeks. Just before serving, dust with icing sugar.

Veal Scallopini in Madeira This is simply delicious and elegant enough to serve guests with a topping of sauteed mushrooms and onions, over a bed of wild rice and brown rice, with some fresh green beans alongside. We used a veal scallopini which had been run through a delicator, but you can pound your own veal too. 1 1/2 lb. (750 g) thinly-sliced veal 1/2 c. (125 ml) flour 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) fine salt pinch of coarsely-ground black pepper 1 tbsp. (15 ml) butter 1 tbsp. (15 ml) oil 1/3 c. (80 ml) boiling water 1/3 c. (80 ml) Madeira salt and pepper, to taste 1/4 c. (60 ml) fresh parsley Place the veal between two sheets of waxed paper. Using either the flat edge of a cleaver or the bottom of a frypan, flatten the veal to a 1/8th inch thickness.

In a shallow dish, add the flour and season with salt and pepper. Dredge the veal lightly in the seasoned flour and discard the remainder. In a large frypan, heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat. Cook the veal, in batches, for about two to three minutes a side, just until cooked through and the edges are browned, adding more butter and oil, if necessary. Transfer the veal to a dish and keep warm. Chop parsley. To the same pan, add boiling water, Madeira and 2 tbsp. fresh parsley. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the veal, and cook, covered, for two or three minutes, until the meat is warmed through, turning once to coat with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Arrange on a serving plate and top with the remainder of the chopped parsley. Serves 4 to 6.
