Buying into the vision of future tourism draw

Barry Gerding

EDITOR

It was a busy Friday for the Kelowna Mountain development last week. Project proponent Mark Consiglio held a press conference at the wine tasting cave venue at the development site to highlight three points: • The B.C. Securities Commission had lifted the cease trade order against the development • The capital project in 2014 for the development will be the world’s first agricultural-based wine park • Consiglio’s strained relationship with the Regionnal District of the Central Okanagan is not likely to change in the near future. On the financial front, the Kelowna Mountain Limited Partnership, created by Consiglio to raise revenue to pay for the development, had been given a cease trade order. In order to have the order lifted or the project would face potential bankruptcy, Consiglio sent a more detailed outline than was originally presented to all the investors, who were given the option to stick with the project or opt out and get their money back. He said 88 per cent of the 528 unit holders were sticking with his plan. “We put together a 144-page document that was sent out to all our investors,” he said, noting his feeling that those investors were unified behind his vision for the Kelowna Mountain property was proven correct. He said the unit shares are now up for sale again at $150,000 per unit, which Consiglio said is four times the original unit value. As for the wine park, Consiglio said it will feature a two kilometre long summer canal and promenade surrounded by 12 architecturally distinct greenhouses, each growing grapes for 12 different wine products including Red, White, Icewine, Ginseng, Rice, Sake, Port, Sherry, Aperitif, Balsamic and specialty wines. Consiglio compared the canal feature to the Rideau Canal in Ottawa as a major tourist draw during the winter months. “Can you imagine skating along the canal in the winter months with the fabulous views to die for that you will have?” he said.

Snow and ice causes driving mayhem Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Anyone wondering what Monday’s big news story would shape up to be needed to look no further than their nearest road. As snow fell, area pavement iced over and cars started piling up

in ditches. Road crews worked feverishly to catch up with Mother Nature and lay down a layer of de-icer as tow trucks were deployed. A number of local routes—such as Lakeshore, Gordon, Swamp and Boucherie roads— were closed as that work commenced. “Kelowna RCMP

have been responding to motor vehicle crashes for the last few hours involving vehicles that have lost control,  gone off road or collided with another vehicle,” said Sgt. Ann Morrison, in a 2 p.m. press release. “Police are reminding motorists to be cautious and adjust their speed ac-

cordingly while driving on the roads as they are slippery during this time. It is also important to have the appropriate winter tires and equipment, including warm clothing.” Although the snow was blamed for wreaking havoc, freezing temperatures were a major contributor to the problems

faced by motorists and pedestrians alike. “An arctic front went through today when the snow came,” said Doug Lundquist, a meteorologist with Environment Canada. By night’s end, he predicted one more snow fall,

to a probation officer in May 2013, shortly before he was arrested. “He was talking about his relationship with his girlfriend, with his family and threats made to him,” probation officer Sandra Brown testified. Collins allegedly became aware of those threats when a police of-

ficer went to his door to warn him there was a hit on him. By his estimates, there were four people who he was at risk from. Three of them were arrested after a July 2012 shootout with police that ran a course from West Kelowna to Vernon. The fourth person remains at large.

City to spend $48 million for new police building Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna city council has approved a plan to spend $48 million to build a new police detachment in the city. On Monday, council gave the plan the green light, noting it will replace a detachment building on Doyle Avenue downtown that is too small for the 175 officers and additional civilian staff who work there now. “The current facility is unacceptable,” said Coun. Colin Basran, who, along with the rest of council, was given an extensive tour of the existing detachment last week to see just how inadequate it is. City hall says the existing 52-yearold building no longer provides sufficient space for effective policing in the community, so a new Kelowna police services building for the RCMP is proposed for the corner of Clement Avenue and Richter Street. “Maintaining a safe community is a priority for citizens,” said John Vos, infrastructure division director for the City of Kelowna. “The city’s 2012 citizens survey ranked concerns about personal safety relatively low, while protective services were citizens’ top priority for community investment. That tells us people generally feel safe in Kelowna and they want to continue investing in protective services to give the RCMP the support system and efficiencies they need to keep our neighbourhoods, business areas and downtown safe.” The project will be built using a design-build method of construction and will require the city to borrow $42.3 million of the total cost. It will seek approval from voters using the controversial alternate approval process, which puts the onus on taxpayers to oppose the plan by signing petition forms in sufficient numbers over a short time period if they do not want the city to proceed. It is similar to negative option billing, which is illegal in B.C. when used by businesses but not local government. In addition to the borrowed money, the city will also use $2 million from its reserve fund set up for replacement of the existing RCMP detachment building, $1.2 million from its pay-as-you-go capital program, $275,000 from other municipalities that will house prisoners in its 29 new jail cells, and $2.1 million from

its parking and general reserves. The project will provide a 90,000-square-foot building capable of housing 220 officers plus 115 civilian staff and 17 commissionaires. Vos said the project will be more than just a new building. It will also include necessary roadway and intersection improvements at Clement and Richter, public and secure facility parking, landscaping and required off-site utility servicing. The contract for the design builder will be $36 million and is expected to be awarded in December 2014. The building is expected to be completed by late 2017. That contract cost will include design and engineering, building construction, parking, landscaping, utility upgrades, street upgrades, sidewalk and irrigation. There will be additional direct costs to the city (outside of the contract work) that could be as much as $12 million, for a total project cost of $48 million. Those direct costs include planning, project management, development cost charges, building permit, furniture and computer networks, financing costs, design-build stipend for unsuccessful bidders and a contingency reserve. Coun. Robert Hobson noted the 30year amortization of the loan will mean future generations will help pay for a building they will use. He said this is a good time to borrow from the Municipal Finance Authority of B.C., as rates are low. Under the Municipal Policing Agreement, the city is required to provide adequate accommodations for the RCMP to perform its work, within a set of nationally applied policing standards. “It is important to remember that this facility is more complex than office space—it is part prison, part hightech lab, part library and part armoury or high-security storage facility,” said Vos. “It is operational 24/7 and required to be built to a post-disaster standard, which means after the occurrence of a seismic event, the building needs to not only remain standing, but needs to remain fully operational.” Coun. Luke Stack noted the price of the new RCMP building will be equivalent to another popular civic building, the H2O Aquatic Centre in the Mission. He said the public had no problem getting behind that project and urged them to do the same with this building awaters@kelownacapnews.com

ELECTRIFYING RHETORIC…Provincial NDP leader Adrian Dix was in Kelowna late last

week to blast the Liberal government for its handling of proposed B.C. Hydro rates. He accused the government of incompetence and said Hydro customers are now being forced to pay for what he described as past Liberal “mistakes.” Hydro customers are looking at a 28 per cent increase in rates over the next five years, with a nine per cent jump coming April 1, 2014. While most Kelowna electricity customers are serviced by FortisBC, B.C. Hydro services the Westside, which includes Premier Christy Clark’s Westside-Kelowna riding. Dix accused Clark of not telling voters the truth about plans to increase Hydro rates during last May’s provincial election. David Bond, Kelowna Chamber of Commerce president, says he doesn’t feel the business community will be too hurt by the upcoming electricity rate hike. “Most business owners would anticipate that a utility that invests in infrastructure would have replacement costs,” he said. “As a business owner, it’s important that an electricity supply is stable, so when the rates go up, as long as it’s not astronomically, you manage…you would hate to have (rates) stay the same and have crumbling infrastructure.”

Second phase of Stuart Park expansion approved by council Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna city staff say work is expected to start on an expansion of Stuart Park on the downtown lakeshore in February. The $2 million second phase of the park will improve the existing waterfront walkway north of the open-air ice rink across from City Hall, demolish the existing Kelowna Yacht Club building as soon as the club’s new facility is completed and turn the existing yacht club parking lot into

grassed parkland. The man in charge of city parks projects, Andrew Gibbs, told council Monday the plan is to have the new-look walkway ready for public use by the Canada Day weekend next July and the grass areas complete by next September. The project is to include firepits and walkways connecting Water Street to the lakeshore promenade, as well as the grassed areas, but could have other amenities added in future. “You had me at

firepits,” joked Coun. Luke Stack, who led council in praising the plan and voting to proceed with it. While a contractor will work on the upland portion of the park, as well as rebuilding the walkway to match the existing promenade in front of the existing portion of Stuart Park, city crews will handle the demolition of the old yacht club building—a city-owned structure—and the existing stretch of walkway between the ice rink and the Water Street boat launch,

said Gibbs. Stuart Park has proven to be a popular spot with the public since it opened a few years ago. With its iconic Bear sculpture and public ice rink in the winter, it has become a gathering point for locals and tourists. The area continues the city’s plan for parkland along the entire downtown stretch of Kelowna, from the Bennett Bridge to the Rotary Marshes at the north end of the downtown waterfront. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Developer looking for more support from local politicians Tourism from A1 “Big White and Silver Star do well during the winter tourist season, but Kelowna itself needs more tourist attractions to draw people here in winter. We think this canal concept is one idea that will draw more people to Kelowna.” He said the wine park in general is a “novel and never been done before” concept that he hopes local government will embrace. “My hope is they will support me to help make this the number one (winter) tourist attraction in B.C.,” Consiglio said. While the wine park is a long-term project, Consiglio added he hopes the canal feature will be up and running by next winter. “I like to get the design and engineering for these projects in place, and then build it as fast as we can,” he said. “That is my track record. We built the welcome centre in 56 days. I built my million-dollar home in the Mission in 10 days with 125 guys working around the clock.” With $50 million already invested in the welcome centre, 1,000 seat restaurant and amphitheatre and four suspension bridges, Consiglio said the wine park will mark another $50 million investment in the project. He also stressed his plans for Kelowna Mountain will be carried out by the building permit application process, avoiding the need for rezoning, submission of an area structure plan, development permit or Official Community Plan amendment. Under the Kelowna Mountain property’s RU 1 rural zoning, permitted uses for buildings and structures include agriculture, agri-tourism, greenhouses, agri-tourist accommodation and wineries. Consiglio claims under the RU 1 zoning, he has a buildable area of 11,248,200 sq.ft. with a four-storey building height maximum. “That is the equivalent of 11 Orchard Park malls

BARRY GERDING/CAPITAL NEWS

MARK Consiglio met with the media Friday to outline a new wine park capital project he hopes to begin building at his Kelowna Mountain development in 2014. without requiring any rezoning,” Consiglio said. It is that single building permit application process that has left him at odds with the regional district. When Consiglio built the welcome centre, he was exasperated to find out he couldn’t get an occupancy permit after the construction was completed. The regional district has claimed that is because the marble-floored Italian-style villa building exceeded in square footage what was approved for under the building permit. The occupancy permit granted the building for partial use, with the additional square footage not included in the original building permit limited only for storage. Kelowna Mountain has petitioned the B.C. Supreme Court seeking a judicial review to obtain an injunction to overturn the occupancy permit ruling. Consiglio said he remains confident the court process will vindicate the original concept use for

the building. “We hope our evidence will show the regional district was not in the right to issue a building permit for the welcome centre, we spend $5 million to built it, and then be told we can’t use it.” When asked about his planned use of the centre not falling under the agri-tourism definition of the RU1 zoning for his property, Consiglio said “that assertion is news to me. Have they said that publicly?” When asked why his development has become such a contentious issue with the regional district, Consiglio told the media gathering that’s a question for the regional district to answer. Essentially, Consiglio made it clear he plans to add one amenity feature at a time to the development requiring only a building permit and occupancy permit; with those facilities to be serviced by the development’s own private water and sewer service. What remains unclear is what will happen when the project’s business in-

vestments, such as the real estate development and ski hill operation, both of which will require rezoning because neither qualify as agri-tourism related projects, come before the regional district at a point when many of the other amenities which make up the total development package may already be in place. Consiglio made a plea for local politicians at the regional, municipal and provincial levels to be open-minded about the potential for Kelowna Mountain. “I am glad to see (regional district board director) Patty Hanson here but we invited the board chairman Robert Hobson to come, along with Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray and his council and all the senior staff to hear what we had to say today,” Consiglio said. “For whatever reason, they chose not to show up for what could become the greatest tourism attraction for our area.” Consiglio said he was hopeful Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thom-

son will get on board with upgrading the Gillard Forest Service Road that connects Upper Mission to his property. And while acknowledging potential issues such as increased traffic in the Upper Mission that his development may pose to the City of Kelowna, he noted Kelowna Mountain’s immediate government oversight relationship is with the regional district. Consiglio said he believes the general public is behind his visionary proposal, citing the fact 25,000 people took advantage of the free tour of the wellness centre and suspension bridges this summer. “What we are proposing is something that will be terrific for the Okanagan, for tourism, for the wine industry, and we

hope the media will embrace what we are trying to do here,” he said. “Put yourself five years down the road and looking back at the coverage you gave to Kelowna Mountain when we announced this (wine park) project. There were naysayers about the suspension bridges and welcome centre as well, but look now at how spectacular that turned out, that 25,000 people came to

check them out and the reviews from those people were it is second to none. “Please embrace our project. We have worked hard on this for 10 years. I know (Kelowna) is a sceptical town, we live here, my wife is third generation Kelowna, but we have worked hard on this…we’re very proud of it and we hope the media and local politicians will come on side with what we’re trying to do.”

NEWS ▼ OKANAGAN COLLEGE

New program offers support to parents dealing with autism An autism spectrum diagnosis can be paralyzing for parents, but the Autism Spectrum Certificate at Okanagan College can help them fill the knowledge gap and move forward. “After her diagnosis, I was overwhelmed with what to do first. I knew what she needed, but not where to go to get that help,” said Jai-

mee Therrien, a mother of four, who has a 14-yearold daughter with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). “In my experience, you need at least 80 hours of education to really understand what it is your child needs over the long term and how to successfully navigate that process,” said Joanne Poole, one of Okanagan College’s Autism Spectrum

Certificate instructors and mother of 20-year-old son on the autism spectrum. Providing that critical piece of education to parents and caregivers alike, Okanagan College offers the Autism Spectrum Certificate, a three-month, part-time course at all Okanagan College campuses with new intakes in Vernon and Penticton starting in January 2014.

The certificate provides students with an indepth understanding of what ASD is, how it affects brain function and how those differences in brain function create behaviour, learning and language problems. Not only will students master teaching and learning techniques, they will get the tools and resources to support children and

adults both in school and in the community. Knowledge about how to transition older children into self-sufficiency and employment will also be acquired. Students of this program typically include people who work with individuals on the autism spectrum such as behaviour interventionists, nurses, teachers, support care workers, and now, more than ever, parents. “It’s parents who are bearing the brunt of recent cuts to autism intervention funding,” said Poole.

“The autism intervention and support programs do as much as they can with the resources they are provided, but the onus is now on parents to become educated.” “For someone who is facing a new diagnosis or someone who wants to work with individuals with autism, Therrien says this course will be beneficial because it gives you all the information you need to be an advocate for individuals with autism. Equipped with what she learned in the Autism Spectrum Certificate,

Therrien became a behavioural interventionist with the autism department of the Central Okanagan Child Development Centre. “I am really passionate about working with kids with challenges,” she said. “After taking the certificate, not only was I able to help my own daughter, but now I make a living helping other kids and their families everyday.” For more information on the Autism Spectrum Certificate, visit www. okanagan.bc.ca/ASC. bc.ca .

NEWS ▼ INN FROMTHE COLD

868-0126

Older clients worrisome trend Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

With the first month of the season behind them, volunteers and employees at Kelowna’s Inn from the Cold can say one thing with confidence. “We’ve had a really busy season so far,” said Tara Tschritter, coordinator at Inn from the Cold. Generally the shelter houses about 28 people per night in their 35 beds. This season, they’ve been averaging 34 a night. And those clients are as varied as the people in the community. “We’re seeing men and women, and people with pets,” said Schritter, noting that Inn From The Cold is a low barrier shelter, which means couples will likely find their way to them, as opposed to some of the other shelters in town that focus their efforts on men, or women, alone. Schritter has also seen a number of clients who are older, which is of some concern. “About 30 per cent of the population in our shelter is people who are 55plus,” she said, noting the proportion mirrors that of the community at large. “That being said, it’s worrisome when we see seniors. The older people get, the more vulnerable they are.” There’s no specific reason why the business at the shelter has seen an uptick, or why there are more older people using their services. But Schritter said it’s likely due to the fact that there still isn’t enough low income housing in the area, and the economy has never recovered from the economic downturn in ’08. “More places have opened… but people who are on disability, still only

get $375 for rent, so just finding appropriate accommodation is challenging,” she said. “And after a few years of the economy not going well, people start losing their housing.” A better picture of what the shelter’s clientele are facing will be clear later in the season, following a series of workshops where they will be asked what it is they’re facing. With that, Schritter hopes she and her staff will be better equipped to help people find housing and stay out of the shelter. “This is just a BandAid. It’s needed, but we want to see people in their own homes,” she said. For more information on the shelter, go to innfromthecoldkelowna.org.

Charity efforts offering support The countdown to Christmas is on, and those looking for a way to give back to their community are being welcomed with open arms to any number of local charities. Inn from the Cold is of those organizations. “This time of year brings out the best of people,” said Tara Schritter, coordinator for Inn from the Cold. “We have a variety of groups coming to us, asking ‘What can we do?’” Luckily for them, Schritter has a few good ideas stemming from the fact that their operations are highly in need of volunteer elbow grease as well as financial donations. “Five nights a week, we have community groups coming in to donate and make meals,” she said, noting that the Rotary Club, Okanagan Mission high school, Lululemon and a host of others have already donated their time this year. The shelter is also the beneficiary of a Disney fundraiser, which is bound to stock their shelves. Although the benefit to the shelter is top of mind, giving also creates a bit of cheer, says Nicole Gareau. Gareau is the manager of Urban Barn, and that store is holding an event called Blanket the Country. Anyone who goes into the store is asked to donate $5 and that buys a blanket for one of the clients at the shelter. “Our target is to supply them with 150 blankets, and anything we collect over and above will be donated in a dollar value,” said Gareau, noting that the blankets would retail at $20 to $25, normally. It’s a charity that her customers get a sense of satisfaction from. “Just the fact you get something you physically see and you know there’s an immediate benefit,” she said. With the help of Flightcraft and CIBC, Urban Barn has almost reached its targets. —Kathy Michaels

The invisible homeless

T

he problem of youth homelessness is a growing one in Langley. Thus far, it has remained largely invisible, because most homeless youth are not roaming the streets, collecting bottles and recyclables or lining up at the Gateway of Hope for a meal. Many of them are, in fact, attending school. But when classes are over, they have no permanent homes to go to. This may be due to a disagreement with their parents. It may be that there are no parents

able to care for them. Addiction issues or other disruptions at their homes may have led to an estrangement. Yet the students who, despite all this, are continuing to attend school want to reach a better point in their lives. They want to graduate from high school, and perhaps go to college or university, or take other training. Many come to school hungry, and most high schools have made arrangements to feed them. In some cases, they have

also been helped with clothing. But it seems that, in most ways, they are left to fend for themselves. This is a tricky situation, because in many cases, their parents are their legal guardians, yet have little contact with them. The ministry of children and family development can only do so much in such situations. Another problem is that these teens can’t do a lot of things that people just a few years older can do. They can’t easily move to a

new school, or sign a contract, such as a rental contract to live on their own. This issue needs much closer study by provincial and local governments. Teens who want to better themselves, but do not have family support, need to be given a hand up. If that happens, they won’t be requiring expensive social services in a few years. Instead, they will be working and paying taxes. —Langley Times

five days left—one day if it sticks to its self-imposed deadline of Dec. 4— to do what it has taken 85 days to do so far. And that’s just here in the Central Okanagan. Campaign leader Dana Larsen admits his group is having trouble gathering enough names on petitions forms in other places too, like the Fraser Valley and the Cariboo. Back in October, local campaign spokesman Mark Conlin described the signature collection bid here as right on track. He declared there was no sense of panic among local organizers. Last week, when Larsen came

to town to accept the petition from Clark’s riding, he admitted reaching the goal in Kelowna-Mission will be tough. If panic was not there earlier, it is likely there now. And that, it appears, has prompted a new approach from Larsen. He is now talking about giving this referendum bid a second go sooner rather than later if this one fails. He sounds like a man staring reality in the face. If a second bid is launched, Sensible B.C. will have to change its collection strategy from the get go. For much of this campaign, it did not send canvassers door to door, preferring to have them at events.

But local organizers now concede that was a mistake. They noticed a large increase in names once they went to where the people live, as opposed to expecting the public to come tho them at events they visit. There’s no doubt public attitudes towards the personal, recreational use of marijuana in this country are changing. And, if it did nothing else, Sensible B.C.’s campaign has focused on that change. But in the end, the province will likely turn a blind eye. With the federal government— whose jurisdiction the prohibition of

LETTERS

▼ KELOWNA MOUNTAIN

Visionary idealism faces challenge To the editor: Reading the letter headlined “Don’t Beat Down a Visionary Project” (Capital News, Nov. 28) by former Kelowna mayoral candidate Cal Condy, I conjured up some thoughts. First, I take great exception to his statement that the Kettle Valley mountainside is a “fire devastated, uninhabitable mountain eyesore.” I happen to live in the Kettle Valley neighbourhood, and have enjoyed watching nature take her course and provide new growth. That is what forests do. What gives Condy the idea that, after a forest fire, “something” must be

done? It is not as if this is a burned out block in the middle of a downtown. To me, and this is only my opinion, the Kelowna Mountain structures on the mountain are the real eyesore. Second, Condy seems to ignore the many problems, previously reported in the Capital News and other media, with the development project and the investment scheme. If my memory serves me correctly, Mark Consiglio has ignored the many permit requirements and in fact been quite recalcitrant regarding any efforts of

the regional district to resolve the issues. Perhaps he is of the belief that “it is easier to beg forgiveness, than ask permission.” His investment scheme is reported to be so fraught with problems that the B.C. Securities Commission had stepped in to protect those who had put good money into the “Mountain.” And finally, Condy makes one comment with which I strongly agree: “…guys like this Consiglio character don’t come along every day.” As a resident of Kelowna, and of Kettle Valley, I can say we certainly don’t need more “develop-

ers” that don’t go by the rules. It is a good thing more of these characters don’t come along. Condy stated he was “a distant third in the last civic mayoral elections.” One really should have concerns about a person who aspires to an elected public office, when the person doesn’t feel that a developer must be held accountable for following the procedures established to ensure that development projects are undertaken in a proper, orderly, and legal manner. Bob Sherman, Kelowna

Liberal ‘incompetence’ blamed for power hike To the editor: Sticking it to the little guy Adrian Dix paid a visit to Kelowna, roasting Christy Clark over her election promise to reduce BC Hydro rates. What’s instead been announced is a 28 per cent increase across the next five years. Whether you like Dix or not, he’s right when he blames “Liberal incompetence” for the increase.  The government forecast a demand for energy and started signing contracts for independent power projects around five years ago.  The demand for energy didn’t materialize, and the province is forced

to buy independent power at above-market rates for the next 30 or 40 years. The BC Utilities Commission might have stopped at least some of these contracts from being signed had the Liberals not stripped that public watchdog of almost all oversight of BC Hydro matters.  Last year, the Crown corporation lost more than $300,000 on Independent Power Producer contracts, and losses are projected to run to $40 billion across the contracts’ lifetimes. Although the government is trying to cancel up to 20 contracts due to non-performance issues,

Rethink the artificial tree argument To the editor: Re: Letter published in Nov. 29 Capital News (“Tree Slaughter in the name of the Lord has got to stop”). First, the author of this letter, John B. Collinson, doesn’t seem to like the Willow Park Church Living Nativity Scene, calling it “self-aggrandizement of the church and its flock.” Certainly Mr. Collinson is entitled to his opinion, but he’s not clear why it bugs him so much. Second, Mr. Collinson objects to the use of natural trees for this event. He claims that it is “immoral” to cut down living trees to be used in this manner. Why is it immoral to use trees in this manner and not, say, for the construction of houses? Mr. Collinson doesn’t say. Third, Mr. Collinson sounds quite proud that he personally uses artificial rather than natural trees to celebrate Christmas. I would suggest that he truly investigate the environmental impact of artificial trees versus natural trees, he would find out that artificial trees have a far bigger negative impact on the environment than do natural trees. Growing and harvesting natural trees is an excellent way to take carbon out of the atmosphere (assuming the trees are not burned when Christmas is over). Contrast that with the wide variety of petroleum based products and chemicals that go into the production and transportation of artificial trees (not to mention the eventual long-term disposal problem) and you will find that natural trees should be the choice of anyone who wishes to minimize his/her environmental impact. Lloyd Vinish, Kelowna

there’s no action on 47 new IPPs that have been contracted but are not yet constructed. Apart from the ongoing IPP fiasco, BC Hydro has routinely subsidized private corporations by building infrastructure to meet industrial needs.  A case in point is the Site C dam. If it’s built, ratepayers will be paying for power plants needed by the LNG industry. Site C is projected to cost $7.9 billion, and cost overruns can be expected.  Let’s be clear— residents don’t need more power.  B.C. is currently a net

exporter of power, and a surplus, enough to power 472,000 homes, is projected for at least the next ten years.  With strong conservation programs in place, we might not need additional infrastructure for a very long time. Dix said the government’s goal “is to make it look like they’re balancing the budget when in fact they’re running a Ponzi scheme.” What he referred to is the Liberal strategy of dumping BC Hydro’s debt into so-called deferral accounts. If the debt is deferred, the thinking goes, it’s not

▼ HUNTING

Healthy wildlife population numbers found hard to believe To the editor: I must disagree with the Capital News letter from Kevin Hamilton in which he states B.C hunters are not hurting the wildlife population. This is clearly far from the truth. What Mr. Hamilton and other hunters need to realize is that they are reducing the wildlife population every year for the thrill to hunt an animal. We do not need to hunt for food, we have grocery stores that provide us with everything. Why do we still allow the grizzly bear hunt, one of the most vulnerable species out there? There is no sustenance in that? These animals are important to our ecosystem and they must be protected from hunters.

I find it hard to believe we have a healthy animal population. With cities expanding and pipelines being built we need to manage our wildlife and the best way is to severely limit hunting

in this province. If you want food from animals then you should raise bees. Gregory Grim-Haftner, Kelowna

Entrepreneurial leadership entering a new paradigm F or those of you who have found some joy in reviewing the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society website, you will have discovered that the primary mission of the society is “to contribute to the development of entrepreneurial leadership.” This slight shift came about after reading several of Dr. John Maxwell’s books on leadership and the principles that he, and

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young other more academic folk espouse, that leadership is a true touchstone of our daily world regardless of the hat we wear at a moment in time in our daily

relationships. And, so I have chosen to bring to the fore, the sphere of entrepreneurial leadership this week. Donald Kuratko, noted U.S. entrepreneurial scholar and teacher, advises that in the past 30odd years, we have witnessed the most powerful emergence of entrepreneurial activity in the world. Entrepreneurs are now described as “aggressive catalysts” for change in the business world, individuals who recognize opportunities where others see chaos, contradiction or confusion. We can safely state that our Canadian economy receives revitalization because of the efforts of all categories of entrepreneurs. In fact, the world has turned now to free enterprise as a model for economic development. The passion and the drive of entrepreneurs move the world of business forward as they challenge the unknown and continuously create our future. Entrepreneurship has

truly become the symbol of business tenacity and achievement. Entrepreneurs sense of opportunity, drive to innovate and create and their capacity for accomplishment have become the benchmarks by which free enterprise is now measured. The Globe and Mail this past week published an article stating that in 2009, 117,000 Canadians started their self-employment journey through entrepreneurial pursuit. Now that is a signal is it not? This revolution, it is said, will become more powerful to the 21st century than the Industrial Revolution was to the 20th century. Yet, in the midst of this realm of “revolution,” it is my belief and that of many academics, scholars and business leaders that entrepreneurship is more than the mere creation of new ventures. An entrepreneurial perspective can be developed in individuals and can be exhibited inside or outside an organization, in profit or non-prof-

it (such as the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society) enterprises, and in both business or non-business activities for the purpose of bringing forth creative ideas. Thus, entrepreneurship then, is an integrated concept that genuinely permeates our society and individuals in an innovative manner. It is clearly a perspective that has reinvigorated individuals to, once again, reach into their inner self to find the innovative spirit that resides in all of us. This is, in effect, the true essence of entrepreneurial leadership. With that, below are a handful of characteristics that I believe underly what is great entrepreneurial leadership: 1. Self-Esteem— underlying everything, is a high sense of one’s own self-worth. Without that, individuals will never be able to undertake tough challenges 2. Need to Achieve— the world of academia and entrepreneurial writers strongly highlight this characteristic associating this need with those who constantly seek to perform at their best; persons high in this need are open to feedback, are goal oriented, seek to be unique and strive for accomplishments based on their own efforts which are all important to effective leadership. 3.

Opportunity—leaders screen incoming information to seek new growth opportunities; they act like gold miners pouring through tons to find a few precious nuggets. 4. Locus of Control— the literature tells us that successful leaders and.. entrepreneurs typically show a “ high internal locus of control,” which means that people who experience this characteristic assume that any success they may experience is due to their personal efforts and that they have the ability to influence events 5. Goal Orientation— this is an important one and one which I am constantly aware in my research and readings about entrepreneurs; those ventures that last always share a common factor, to embrace and understand what the priorities are and continue to work on that philosophy day in and day out 6. Optimism—underlying successful entrepreneurial leadership is a boundless font of optimism; problems are viewed as challenges, not setbacks underscoring an overall belief in the positive in any roller-coaster ride of entrepreneurial pursuit 7. Courage—entrepreneurs are risk takers but it does take a great deal of courage to build an organization, a new venture, a team from the ground up

The provincial government will provide $10,500 in Hosting BC grants to help support two major sporting events at the Big White Ski Resort this winter. The 2014 IPC Para-Snowboard Cross World Cup tournament, Jan. 23 to 26, will get a grant of $7,500, while the Sport Chek Snowboard Cross National Championships (March 27 to 30) will receive a $3,000 grant. “These events shine the national and international spotlight on Big White, and our talented athletes,” said Norm Letnick, MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country.   Across the province, 41 events in 24 communities will receive $164,500 in Hosting BC funding, provided by the B.C.

All donations of non-perishable food items can be made at any Save-On-Foods and Coopers Foods locations in Kelowna and West Kelowna between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday. Items can also be dropped off at any of the four Salvation Army locations Monday through Friday.

YMCA staff bring Christmas holiday cheer Staff at Central Okanagan YMCA Little Scholars Daycare are going the extra mile this holiday season, providing a lucky family a holiday meal and a couple presents to put under the tree.  For some, the holidays are not as cheerful as they could be. Being a low income family or single parent can be a struggle, especially today, as prices skyrocket and the pressure and trends to buy more for our children heightens.  Staff members at YMCA Little Scholars Daycare have built great relationships with the families who use the child care services. To pay their appreciation back, the staff have taken it upon themselves to support a family in need with all the holiday fixings for a dinner as well as a present per member of the family to put under the tree.  They are doing this out of their own pockets which proves true commitment to the Y’s values of caring, respect and responsibility. “YMCA of Okanagan staff across all departments devote themselves to nurturing the potential in our kids,” said Colleen Keeler, Little Scholars childcare director. “This is really important because, by doing so, we are supporting their growth into healthy adults which, in turn, creates healthy communities.  “In the past four and half years our centre has been in operation I have met many families who are struggling just to provide the basics for their children.  “It is wonderful to see the generosity of the staff as well, some who have limited resources themselves.” The recipient of last year’s holiday care package was very grateful for all the support he and his son Marshall received. “Childcare can be very expensive, especially if you are going to college and trying to succeed and do better,” says Marshall’s father, Bruce Vancoughnett.  “Being a single parent, any little bit of help you can get is good” he explained, referring to both the holiday donation and the YMCA’s Financial

Assistance program.   Vancoughnett is now working to gain his hours as an automotive service technician, saying he wouldn’t be able to go to school without the financial assistance provided through YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign, in addition to a government subsidy, bringing his childcare down from

$738/month to $94.  A recent report by First Call, a child and advocacy group in Vancouver, found that B.C. has the highest child poverty rate in Canada— five per cent above the national average—which makes it more important for the YMCA to support local kids in anyway it can. 

Thanks to the caring staff at YMCA Little Scholars, a family will receive the same holiday cheer this season as did the Vancoughnetts last year—a care package delivered right to their door from the hearts of the staff at the YMCA.

noon to check for signs of impairment. The road checks were the first of this year’s Counterattack campaign: An annual Central Okanagan Traffic Services initiative, which aims to get impaired drivers off Kelowna roads. “We see an increase in incidents of impaired driving, generally, through the holidays,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. “We want to nip that in the bud before it starts.” Although Friday’s road checks were done in the daylight, Clark said drivers can expect to be stopped at various times and locations throughout the city over the next month. “We can set up anywhere in the city. If it’s

deemed we need to move for strategic reasons, then we’ll do that as well. We won’t necessarily be set up in any place for too long.” After stopping a vehicle, Clark said police will attempt to determine if the driver is showing signs of intoxication. If so, Mounties can demand the motorist provide a breath sample. If the sample shows a reading between 0.06 and 0.099 per cent blood alcohol content, drivers can be given a three-, seven- or 30-day immediate roadside prohibition, depending on that driver’s history. Those who show readings of 0.1 per cent blood alcohol content or higher who don’t have a history

Clark added all types of impairment are being

targeted. Over the last couple years, Mounties have witnessed an increase in drug-impaired driving, he said. Several RCMP members trained in detecting impairment by drugs will be part of the Counterattack road checks. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

SENIORS

Fitness trends around the world Although North America is responsible for the modern day fitness facility, people have been exercising for centuries. Below is a sample of

what has proven popular of late in other countries for getting fit:

BRAZIL: CAPOEIRA

Capoeira combines

dance, acrobats, music, and martial arts.  It is said to have been invented by African slaves who were practicing martial arts while pretending

to dance. Besides being a great cardio workout, Capoeira works all of the muscle groups, toning them while increasing your flexibility. It improves your reflexes and agility, and teaches you balance, coordination and rhythm. It is also a workout for the mind, improving concentration and perseverance. 

JAPAN: RADIO TAISO

In Japan, there is a series of warm up stretches that are broadcast every morning on the radio.  Students do them in school, companies have their workers do them, and seniors do them in the park.  They are meant to unite people and raise energy levels, while encouraging good health. 

CHINA: WALKING BACKWARDS

Tourists in China are always surprised when they see people in the park walking backwards.  Walking backwards actually works on your postural muscles, (giving you better posture) and on muscles in your legs that you don’t normally use. It also improves your balance  Ancient rumours have it that walking backwards

INDIA: YOGA

Yoga is an ancient form of physical and mental discipline. Yoga is intended to unite your body with your mind.  There are many different kinds of yoga that focus on different things.  Some are more spiritual, with chanting and visualizing, while others are more physically challenging, achieving mental clarity by kicking your butt.   No matter what kind of yoga you try, all of them increase your flexibility, tone your muscles, and help you to achieve peace of mind. 

MIDDLE EAST: BELLY DANCING

Belly dancing emphasizes isolating your muscles, and teaches you how to move them independently. Core muscles are worked out the best,

tightening your abs. In Eastern philosophy, the pelvic area is the source of strength and a lot of energy in the body gets stored there. The pelvic movements in belly dancing are said to release this energy. It has also been said that belly dancing reduces menstrual cramps, and strengthening your pelvic muscles can make childbirth less painful.    ••• According to the International Council on Active Aging, there are many upcoming trends occurring in older adult fitness. However, probably the most significant one is the acknowledgement of exercise as a disease solution! Viewing exercise as medicine, as a tool to not only manage but also prevent the health issues older adults face, is becoming a commonplace way to promote regular exercise. Some of the top fitness trends for the growing population of seniors are: • Strength training programs and personal training to help maintain strength and prevent falls. • Bodyweight exercises and programs using back-to-basics exercis-

es like push-ups, planks, and pull-ups, is expected to be one of the top 10 fitness trends of 2014. These exercises can be done at home with minimal equipment and there is no cost for gym membership. • Core workouts and functional training will remain important as older adults focus on staying functional and independent as long as possible. • Zumba, a dance fitness program created by a dancer in the 1990s, has skyrocketed in popularity in the past few years is expected to hit the pool and become the latest in Aqua fitness.

Isolated seniors not forgotten

Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray has proclaimed Dec. 4 as “Be a Santa to a Senior Day.” The proclamation is a recognition of a program started by Home Instead Senior Care, providing holiday gifts to isolated seniors. This year, more than 600 gifts will be delivered to Okanagan residents through this program. As well, a special luncheon will be held Wednesday at Missionwood Retirement Resort for those who assist a senior in need.

Q A

There is a myth that carpets are a source of allergens and dust and hard floors are better. The truth is a well maintained carpet will keep the air in the home cleaner than a hard floor.

In 1975 Sweden pushed to remove all carpeting in public buildings and encouraged homeowners to do the same. Breathing related illnesses rose dramatically as it was discovered that a small amount of air movement on a hard floor lifts allergens up into the respiratory systems of occupants. Carpet, on the other hand, is a wonderful filter holding the dust and keeping it out of the air. Vacuuming thoroughly once a week with a quality vacuum is usually enough to keep the dust down and the air clean. Having the carpet cleaned by Oxy-Dry on a regular basis is also essential to keeping the home as contaminant free as possible. Our exclusive ozone boost system will kill all germs, bacteria and viruses on contact on the carpet fibre, deep cleaning out contaminants and keeping your carpet FRESH and as sanitary as possible. No other system can match this effectiveness. For a deep clean that’s drier than steam, call Oxy-Dry!

Q A

Why should I have an up to date Last Will and consider an Enduring Power of Attorney?

Your Last Will is a very personal document where you decide among other things how your estate is to be managed and provides for the care of your children upon your passing.  An Enduring Power of Attorney allows you to control how your property is managed in the event you become unable to manage your own affairs, but it must be signed before you lose the ability to manage your affairs. Both documents are relatively inexpensive for a lawyer to prepare. However, Court costs and legal fees can be huge if you do not decide ahead of time how you want your affairs managed. An important part of the process to prepare these documents is to consult with a lawyer who can provide advise relating to issues such as tax avoidance.  If either document is not properly signed there can be problems which again can result in significant legal fees and your wishes may not be carried out.  In short, you can pay  now, or quite possibly your estate can pay a lot more later.

Q A

Hearing loss can be caused by aging. But I was born with a hearing loss so it’s not the only cause!

You are absolutely correct, there are several causes of hearing loss: aging is simply the most common. One out of 10 people have a hearing loss and some of them are born with that loss. A hearing loss at birth can be caused by genetics or problems during the mother’s pregnancy. Illness as a child, from meningitis for example, can result in permanent hearing loss. Another fairly common cause of hearing loss is exposure to damaging noise levels, whether from playing instrument in a band or orchestra, or working in a noisy environment such as a mill or car repair garage. Using fire arms during hunting or recreational pursuits can also result in damaging your hearing. There are some medications as well that have a side effect of causing hearing loss, including but certainly not limited to, some of the drugs used in cancer treatments. So indeed, there are a variety of causes of hearing loss. But the result is the same, a diminished ability to participate fully in life around you.

Q A

My mother has recently had a mastectomy due to breast cancer and does not want reconstruction surgery. How can she get her feminine shape back?

One in nine women will have breast cancer in their lifetime and close to half with invasive breast cancer will have a mastectomy. For women that have not had reconstruction, a breast prosthesis can help restore their feminine shape. Breast prostheses are designed to return the natural appearance, weight, and feel of a breast. Breast prostheses are covered by Pharmacare and are typically worn in mastectomy bras that have pockets sewn into the cup. There are a wide range of sizes and styles available. An experienced fitter can help choose the best size and style for your mother. To learn more about breast forms and mastectomy bras, call our office to book a free consultation with one of our certified post-mastectomy fitters at (250) 861-1833.

Q A

What causes plantar fasciitis and what are my treatment options?

The plantar fascia is a broad, dense band of collagen tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot beginning at the heel bone and indirectly connects to the toes. The hallmark sign of plantar fasciitis is heel pain arising in the morning or after periods of rest, caused from the fascia being stretched or lengthened on standing. Since the fascia is not very elastic, tension felt at one end will be transmitted to the other. A lack of ankle motion, short Achilles Tendon, or a heel spur may also contribute to the pain. Treatment includes a series of stretching exercises, short term anti-inflammatory medication such as Advil or Aleve, or applying ice to the heel . Over-the-counter or custom foot orthotics can help, and if purchased should be worn at all times including in the house with a supportive pair of running shoes or sneakers. Continue to wear the orthotics for several months after resolution of symptoms to prevent a recurrence. The good news is that no matter how you are treated, over 90% of people have resolution of symptoms – though this may take up to six months.

Q

My son has some baby teeth and some adult teeth and things just don’t look right. Do we have to wait until all the adult teeth come in before we address things?

A

Great question. I come from the school of thought that simply states a problem usually gets worse until it gets solved. So following that logic, early assessment is the key to determine if there is in fact a problem, or even worse, a series of problems. Assuming there is cause for concern, early intervention with children means the opportunity to affect or change their growth and developmental pattern. This is often more physiologic, more comfortable, and minimizes or simplifies later treatment. Let’s look at a common example - crowded/crooked teeth. This is not a problem with having too many teeth, but rather too small of jaws. There are reasons this condition occurs, and you should discuss these with your dentist (eg. airway problem). However, it is easy to correct their growth - to literally grow bigger jaws and make room for the teeth and the tongue. This results in more normal/ideal bite patterns and easier breathing. The take home message is to have your children screened early by a trained dentist to help identify early intervention opportunities to help your children grow up more comfortable, confident, and happy.

Golden three-peat by Knights; silver for Mustangs Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Good things often come in threes. No one knows it better than the Kelowna Christian Knights who are celebrating a record third consecutive B.C. high school A girls volleyball title. The Knights defeated their local rivals, the Immaculata Mustangs, in four sets (25-21, 26-24, 19-25, 25-12) Saturday night in the provincial final in Duncan. “They came in ready to play,” head coach Rob Smith said of his Knights.

“You could see when they walked in Saturday night, their faces, their body language…they were hungry. It’s awesome to win three in a row.” As she has been for much of the year, Knights’ 6-foot-3 outside hitter Micaylee Pucilowski was a dominant force and was named the tournament’s MVP. Cheyenne Heidebrecht and Haily Blaskovits were named all-stars, while libero Amanda Hardy of KCS was the outstanding defensive specialist. With nine Grade 12 players on the roster, in-

THE Kelowna Christian Knights chomp down on their gold medals from the B.C. high school A girls volleyball championship held Saturday in Duncan. cluding all six starters, experience weighed in the Knights’ favour—that

and a evolving tradition of volleyball at the school. “I think the school has

really developed a culture for girls volleyball, where so many girls seem to

want to be involved,” said Smith. “We also have a bunch of really good athletes, so that doesn’t hurt either.” KCS is the first school ever to capture three straight provincial girls’ A titles. Three players— Micaylee Pucilowski, Shaylin Jost and Emma Grimes—were on all three winning teams. As for the Mustangs, it was their second straight runner-up effort against the Knights and fourth medal in a row a provincials. Immaculata wrestled the valley title away from KCS two weeks ago, but couldn’t find a way to repeat the feat at provincials. “We had a great season,” said Mustangs coach Brian Drosdovech. “(The Knights) came out and beat us, they played just unreal. To win three banners in a row is phenomenal. Winning one is hard enough.” Caroline Livingston and Megan Hart of the Mustangs were named to the provincial first allstar team, while Natalie

Livingston was named to the second. Immaculta and KCS will co-host the provincial A championship next year. The B.C. champion Knights are: Amanda Hardy, Chelsea Mathews, Katie Pagdin, Isabel Du Plessis, Amanda Jonker, Shaylin Jost, Emma Pagdin, Cheyenne Heidebrecht, Jessica Regehr, Roza Kalashnikoff, Micaylee Pucilowski, Jacqueline Sellers, Hailey Blaskovits and Emma Grimes. The coaches are Rob and Irene Smith.

The KSS Owls won silver and the Mt. Boucherie Bears took the bronze at the B.C. boys AAA championship over the weekend in Kelowna. The OKM Huskies placed fourth at the boys AA level.

Severson earns trip to junior national team selection camp Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Damon Severson is one step away from realizing a childhood dream. The 19-year-old Kelowna Rockets’ defenceman was named Tuesday to the final selection camp roster for Canada’s national junior team. Twenty-five players will vie for 22 spots on Team Canada for the IIHF World Junior Championship, Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Malmo, Sweden. “It’s a great honour,” said Severson, a product of Melville, Sask., said of his selection to the final camp. “Coming into (evaluation) camp I wanted to be a go-to guy and one of the guys the coaches could have confidence in. I need to go into now and show I can contribute, be a guy that they can count on.” Severson is one of eight defenseman who will be at Hockey

Canada’s selection camp beginning Dec. 12 in Etobicoke, Ont. Seven of those are expected to make the final roster. “(Damon) needs to bring the right attitude, and play with intensity and passion,” said Rockets’ head coach Ryan Huska who has served as an assistant coach twice with Team Canada. “He has the tools, he just needs to play the game hard and consistent, and we’ll try and push him and get him prepared to Damon Severson do that.” Rockets’ defenseman Madison Bowey was also part of Hockey Canada’s evaluation process but didn’t make the 25-man selection roster.

For Severson’s part, making Canada’s final roster would be the highlight of his career to date. “It’s been a dream for a long time,” Severson said. “All those years watching (world juniors) on TV, it would be unbelievable to actually be part of it.” Kelowna Rockets’ president and GM Bruce Hamilton is part the Canada’s national junior management team and helped put together the 25-man roster, which includes nine WHL players.

ROCKET SHOTS…

The Rockets and Vancouver Giants will meet for the first time this season Tuesday night at Prospera Place. Kelowna (19-3-0-2) has won 11 of its last 12 games, while the Giants (12-11-4) have gone nine games (5-0-3-1) without a regulation loss…The Rockets are coming off back-to-back 3-2 wins over the Blazers, Friday in Kamloops and Saturday in Kelowna.

Neilson to skeleton at Sochi Kelowna’s Eric Neilson would have preferred a medal at the first World Cup race of the 2013-14 skeleton season. Still, a fifth-place showing Friday at Canada’s Olympic Park in Calgary was good enough to book a trip to Sochi for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

A top-six finish was all he needed to qualify for Canada’s entry. “I wanted to podium, that was my goal but topsix for me is good. I’ll take it,” said Neilson, who lives and trains in Calgary. “This is a huge relief for me to get this off my back and I’m extremely happy. My first run was a

little rough, but I’m pretty happy with things.” Neilson clocked a two-run time of 1:52.97. This is his third season on Canada’s national senior men’s skeleton team. On the World Cup circuit, the 32-year-old Rutland grad has posted four fifthplaces, as well as a fourth at the worlds last season.

Heat men net first two wins

R a

It took until the final weekend of the pre-Christmas schedule, but the UBC Okanagan Heat have their first two wins of the Canada West men’s basketball season. Pete Guarasci’s squad swept a weekend set from the visiting UNBC Timberwolves to head into the semester break with a 2-8 record. On Friday, secondyear guard Mitch Goodwin connected for a career-high 27 points as the Heat downed the ‘Wolves 76-69 for their first win of the season. “It’s definitely a monkey off of our backs,” said Goodwin who was named player of the game. “All season everything just felt kind of off, but (Friday) everything just clicked. So hopefully that can continue throughout the year.” Fifth-year Heat marksman Landry Ndayitwayeko added 22 points behind three big three-pointers. On Saturday, UBCO completed the sweep with an 81-73 win. Secondyear big man Stuart Wallensteen was the difference-maker for the Heat, as he went for a team-high 19 points on 9-for-13 shooting and gobbling seven rebounds.

HEAT ATHLETICS

GUARD Mitch Goodwin scored 39 points, including 27 on Friday, as the Heat swept a pair of Canada West games from UNBC. “He gave us an inside presence,” Guarasci said of f Wallensteen’s effort. “And I thought he was playing the team game, he was looking to attack when it was one-onone coverage, and he was looking to make the kick when there was a double team or if he saw open people on the perimeter.” Goodwin put up a double-double for the Heat with 12 points and

10 boards. Following the break, the Heat will travel down to Santa Barbara, California for an exhibition tournament in the New Year before classes begin. Canada West action resumes Jan. 10 and 11 in Regina and Brandon.

record after a split at home against UNBC. On Friday, Heather Semeniuk’s team rode a strong second half to a 77-72 victory over the Timberwolves. “I’m really happy for them because they needed this,” said Heather Semeniuk of her team earning their second conference win, and the first in front of their home fans. Emily Kanester led the charge for the Heat, as the three-year veteran powered her way to a teamhigh 18 points, including a dagger three-ball in final minute of play. On Saturday, UNBC returned the favour beating the Heat 79-72. UBCO had a slow start and was behind by as many 17 points on two occasions, but still made a game of it. “Our backs were against the wall the whole game,” said Semeniuk. “I think (the Heat) responded very well.” The third-year backcourt duo of Kanester and Sarah Allison did the heavy lifting for the Heat, combining for 46 points in the loss. Following the semester break, the Heat will return to action Jan. 10 in Regina.

▼ MAJOR MIDGET

Rockets and Giants tied Warriors solid end to November atop BCMML A weekend split by the Okanagan Rockets, combined with a sweep by the Vancouver Northwest Giants, has the two teams deadlocked for top spot at the halfway mark of the B.C. Major Midget League season. Both clubs sit at 16-31, five points ahead of the third-place Valley West Hawks. While the Giants were taking two from Cariboo, the Rockets were settling

for a split with the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs at Planet Ice in Coquitlam. On Saturday, Tanner Campbell led the Okanagan attack with a pair of goals, his 12th and 13th of the season as the Rockets rolled the Chiefs 7-2. Mahlon Head, Jake Kryski, Tyson Jost, Linden Hora Carter Hikichi scored the other Okanagan goals, while goaltender Reid Kilburn improved to 10-1-1 on the

season with 19 saves. Kilburn was making his third straight start with Brendan Barry recovering from his appendectomy.  On Sunday, the Chiefs jumped on top 3-0 en route to a 5-2 victory to earn the split. The Rockets return to home ice this weekend when they host Valley West at CNC. The teams meet Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday and 10 a.m.

Despite a less than satisfying month of November, the West Kelowna Warriors remain very much a part of the logjam in the BCHL’s Interior Division. The fifth-place Warriors finished off the month with a solid 5-1 win over Langley Saturday at LePage to remain within five points of top spot. It may have been West

Kelowna’s best 60-minute effort of the season. “I think this was our, start to finish, never gave up, best performance for sure,” said associate coach Brent Gough who coached the Warriors in the absence of head man Rylan Ferster who was on a scouting trip. Jason Cotton, Jordon Masters, Matt Anholt, Seb Lloyd and Reid Simmonds tallied for the War-

riors while Andy Desautels stopped 20 shots for the win in net. The Warriors who went 3-6-1 in November decided to mix up the lines Saturday and the dividends were immediate. “I think there is a time and a place for it and I definitely think that was the time to do it,” Matt Anholt said of the new line combos.

The Warriors were without Ambrose Firkus, Brennan Clark and Ryan Ivey due to injury. Mike Winnitoy, who was called up from the KIJHL’s Summerland Steam to replace Ivey, had an assist in the win. The Warriors (15-101-2) return to action Friday when they host the Surrey Eagles, 7 p.m. at Royal LePage.

SAWINSKI, HILDEGARD LOTTE In the presence of her family, Hildegard Lotte Sawinski went to be with the Lord on November 26, 2013 at the age of 88. She is survived by her three loving daughters; Inge Dixon (David) of Hamilton, ON, Heidi McLaughlin (Jack) of West Kelowna, and Brigitte Kaplun (Bernie) of Lake Country; seven grandchildren; and thirteen great-grandchildren. Sadly predeceased by husband Wilhelm Sawinski in 1996, and daughter Waltraut in 1947 at age 2. Hildegard was born in Gaiken Latvia to parents Robert and Lydia Mantai, the youngest of six children. During WWII the family was re-settled to Wreschen, Poland where she met and married Wilhelm Sawinski in 1942. The marriage was blessed with four daughters. In 1954 the family immigrated to Canada and settled in Prince George where they lived until 1976 when they made Kelowna their home. Hildegard was devoted to her family. Nothing gave her more pleasure than having her family gathered around her table enjoying a meal together. She loved to cook and bake for them, and sending home care packages filled with her wonderful baking. Above all else she loved Jesus and lived her life with a heart of thankfulness and quiet confidence. She was active in Grace Baptist Church for as long as her health allowed. She sang in the choir and enjoyed serving in the ladies ministries, helping wherever she saw a need. A special thanks to Dr. Jan McIntosh and his staff, the nurses at Kelowna’s Hospice House for their compassionate care during her final days, and to all at The Chatsworth. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 1:30 pm at Grace Baptist Church, 1150 Glenmore Drive, Kelowna, with Reverend Eduard Hahn officiating. Interment to follow at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to ‘Chain of Love’ Brazilian Orphanage c/o Grace Baptist Church, or to the Kelowna Hospice House, 2035 Ethel St., Kelowna, BC V1Y 2Z6. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

Elaine Margaret Sophia Nuyens (Gable) passed away peacefully with family by her side on November 26, 2013 at her home on Carrs Landing Road, Lake Country at the age of 78 years. Elaine will be lovingly remembered by her five children: Brenda Wendell (Curt), Ken Nuyens (Jill), David Nuyens, Michael Nuyens (Jocelyn), Korrina Dutot (Steve); 11 grandchildren, Geoff (Meghann), Chris (Shani), Lisa (Bob), Peter (Caley), Jason (Lisa), Cindy, Kyle, Brayden, Mitchell, Meghan, Kaitlin; 14 great grandchildren; and also by Ruth Whitson and Shirley Ritchie her two sisters-In-Law;, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Elaine was predeceased by, the love of her life Ken, of 51 years. Elaine was born in Neudorf Saskatchewan, the youngest and last of seven children, she moved to the Okanagan in the early 1950’s, where she worked as a switchboard operator for the telephone company in Vernon, she moved on quickly to work for the “old” Winoka packing house in Okanagan Centre, and It was there where Elaine met Ken. They soon were married and started raising their family. They owned and operated three orchards and continued to plant out the 100 acres of orchard on Carr’s Landing Road. Mom was a woman of great strength and determination, battling breast cancer for eight years; she enjoyed travelling and seeing the world and being out in the great outdoors. She loved looking out over Okanagan Lake, and watching all the animals walk, swim and fly by, Sophie, her cat will sadly miss her owner. Mom was always busy in the garden and in the last few years she enjoyed having her home surrounded with flowers and plants both inside and out. Grandma lit up when grandchildren and great grandchildren came to visit; Mom loved having her family close so she could be surrounded with their support and love. The family would like to express gratitude to Interior Health, the Palliative Care Nurses, Advanced Care and to Doctor Tim Murphy, and we would like to give a special thanks to Lucille and Lavonda. A celebration of Elaine’s, mom’s life will be at a later date in the New Year, 2014. In Lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Elaine’s name can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca) #202-1835 Gordon Dr., Kelowna, BC V1Y 3H5, or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent to the family through the guest book at www.valleyviewfuneralhome.com. Arrangements entrusted to Valleyview Funeral Home, Kelowna, BC 250-765-3147.

She would do best in a home where she is the ONLY kitty so she can command all your attention and affection. Please speak with the cat staff if you would like to meet her...you will find her extra special.

Noodles is quite a shy girl and would absolutely love a calm quiet environment to spend her life in. She is new at the shelter, and we know with the right person she will become more outgoing.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen beer in food With today’s popularity of craft beers, bringing out a cookbook full of Canadian craft beers and recipes made with them was a genius idea. Published by Whitecap Books and written by food writer and beer aficionado David Ort, The Canadian Craft Beer Cookbook is out just in time to pick up for your favourite beer lover who also loves to cook, for Christmas. Looks like there is a good selection of different recipes using a wide variety of craft beers, from Beer Fondue to Stout-braised Lamb Shanks and even Brownies with Spiced Ale Chocolate Sauce, in addition to the two recipes I’m sharing with you here. My one criticism about this book has nothing to do with the writing or the recipes, but is the fault of the layout designer, who chose to put the recipe ingredients in pale red on a coloured stock, and in an even smaller type than the body copy. What’s wrong with black on white and a decentsized typeface so everyone can read it? In fact, it seems to me if this is a cookbook, then the ingredients list is just about the most important part of the book, so why not boldface it? Perhaps you can tell this is not the first time I’ve run into the problem of a designer of a book ruining its readability…There’s simply no point in it being cute or pretty if it can’t be read. Otherwise, the photos are attractive, the writing clear and informative and the recipes look pretty good. Many people have also told me the recipes are really good in my book, Jude’s Kitchen, published by the Okanagan Institute. The book is organized by the seasons to help you make the most of what’s fresh and local, throughout the year, and it includes 200 recipes for every meal of the day. It’s available at bookstores, wine boutiques and at The Lakehouse on Bernard Avenue downtown. It would make a great gift.

Chicken Liver Pate

While brandy is a classic ingredient in pate, this changes the whole flavour profile, taking it up a notch with the use of a strongflavoured beer called barley wine, but it’s important to use an English-style barley wine that’s low in bitterness, rather than its American counterpart. 1 lb. (500 g) chicken livers 3 tbsp. (45 ml) unsalted butter 1 shallot 1 branch of thyme 4 tbsp. (60 ml) barley wine, divided 1/2 tsp. (2.5 ml) freshly-grated nutmeg 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) white pepper 4 tsp. (20 ml) olive oil 1 tsp. (5 ml) kosher salt Use a sharp paring knife to clean the livers of any membranes, nodes of fat or generally any bits that don’t look like dark reddishbrown liver. Finely mince the shallot and remove the leaves from the thyme and mince. Set a pan over medium heat and melt the butter. When foaming subsides, add the

minced shallot to the pan and stir to coat with butter. Cook until the shallot becomes translucent and softens, about four minutes. Add pieces of liver and minced thyme and toss to coat in hot butter. Cook for three minutes and then flip all of the pieces of liver. After another two minutes, start removing the smallest pieces. Larger ones may need an extra minute or two. The liver should still have a pink blush on the inside. Pour three tablespoons of the barley wine into the pan and scrape the bottom to deglaze. Transfer the cooked liver and shallot mixture to a food processor fitted with the slicing blade. Add the nutmeg and white pepper. Process on high speed until a smooth paste forms. While the processor is running, pour in the additional barley wine and the olive oil and salt, and let the processor run until enough air has been integrated into the pate to make the colour noticeably lighter. Use a spatula to transfer the pate to a serving dish, cover tightly and refrigerate. Serve with lightly toasted baguette rounds.

Korean-style Scallion Pancakes

This is a savoury pancake which could include grated carrots or zucchini, minced mushrooms or kimchi instead of the onions. Instead of scallions, I used green onions, and doubled the amount. I cooked the pancakes in butter instead of oil too. I used the recommended amber ale: Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale by Tree Brewing of Kelowna. Because I wanted to serve them as an appie, I made little tiny ones that could be popped into the mouth. A dip would be great with them. 4 scallions 1 c. (250 ml) flour 2/3 c. (160 ml) rice flour pinch of kosher salt 1 1/3 c. (330 ml) amber ale, cold 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 tbsp. (15 ml) oil oil, for cooking

Pre-heat the oven to 250 F to keep the cooked pancakes warm. Cut scallions on the diagonal into slivers. Whisk both flours and the salt together in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the very cold beer, beaten eggs and oil and whisk to form a smooth, lump-free batter. Fold in the sliced scallions, reserving just a few as a garnish. Heat a non-stick pan with a little oil and butter over medium heat until the oil begins to shimmer and the butter is melted. Ladle enough batter into the pan to make pancakes the size you want, then cook undisturbed for three or four minutes, or until the batter has set. Flip over and cook for two or three minutes more. Hold finished pancakes in the warm oven while you finish the rest of the batter.
