K

elowna’s Central School will celebrate 100 years of existence this weekend and, as the oldest school in the district still operating as a school, it has plenty of history to look back on. In today’s Capital News close-up, assistant editor

Alistair Waters takes a look at the school, both its history and the way it is being used today to deliver 21st century education in a building originally envisioned for students entering the 20th century. See story page A3

CLOSE-UP

‘Grand Old Lady’ of Richter Street celebrates a century of learning SIG Ottenbreit, curator of the Heritage Classroom at Central School, says the 100-year-old building has been a fixture of the local education system since opening its doors in January 1914. ALISTAIR WATERS/CAPITAL NEWS

Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

I

t has stood the test of time for 100 years— Central School, the majestic red brick building on Richter Street, has watched Kelowna grow around it since opening its doors in 1914. The building, the oldest school in the city still being used as a school, has seen generations of local families pass through its halls, passageways that still echo with the memory of the thousands of young students taught there over the years. This weekend, that history will be at the forefront as the school celebrates a century of learning in the building nicknamed the Grand Old Lady of Richter Street. According to current Central Okanagan Board of Education chairwoman Moyra Baxter, while it offers a different type of education today, the school is as relevant now as it was in 1914. “It showed that 100 years ago the city fathers saw this was something that was really important for the community,” said Baxter, adding its role today as the main centre for alternate education programs, distance learning and adult education continues that legacy of learning.

One hundred years ago, at the opening ceremony of the school, the building was described by MP of the day, Price

Ellison, as one of the finest schools in the province, a long way from the first school in the district, a one-room log school-

CANADA Post and Kelowna stamp collector Peter Lepold have created a commemorative stamp to mark the 100th anniversary of Central School. The stamps can be purchased from Sig Ottenbreit, heritage teacher, 250762-2630, or Peter Lepold, either at 250-765-3502 or email plepold@hotmail.com.

house built on the west side of Okanagan Lake 39 years earlier. In its day, Central School was seen as modern, large and possessing features not seen in schools built before that time. It had what were then considered large windows, a heating and ventilation system, 10 classrooms, multiple teachers and room for students to not only learn but also to play. “It had three floors (two above ground and a raised basement) which was unusual,” said Sig Ottenbreit, curator of the heritage classroom located inside of Central School. The classroom, a one-room museum, in-

cludes a large collection of items related to classrooms over the years, including everything from writing slates to old textbooks, desks, school supplies, photographs, even a collection of old baseball gloves. Collection cases contain both metal geometry sets and older wooden ones as well as other odds and ends donated by the public and the school district. The room is set up to resemble a one-room school house, complete with a blackboard featuring lessons for several grades at once. A retired teacher who taught in the district for more than 25 years after coming from Saskatchewan where he started

teaching in the 1940s, Ottenbreit regularly leads tours through the classroom, relaying the history of both Central School and the eduction system here over the years to both children and adults. He said Central is important not only for its heritage value as a building but also because of the impact it has had on the community over the years. For many of the students who went to Central in the early days, formal education stopped when they finished Grade 6. When Central was built there was no high school in Kelowna and students, especially those in rural communities as Kelowna was back then, would often go to work

on either a family farm or look for other work. “Back in those days, not many people went beyond Grade 8,” said Ottenbreit. “And if they did, many did it by correspondence.” Over the years, Central School, which is owned by the City of Kelowna and leased to the Central Okanagan School District for as long as it uses it as a school, has been used in many ways. Originally a Grade 1-6 school, it has been a primary school, the onetime home to the district’s French immersion program in Kelowna and is now the centre for alternate programs, adult education and distance learning. Along with three other smaller satellite centres  in the district, it now provides programs for students who find the regular school system does not work for them. And, fitting for a building that was seen as ahead of its time when it was built 100 years ago, it remains on the leading edge in terms of offerings available, particularly when it comes to distance education. An early 20th century building with 21st century equipment, it allows students sitting in one of its classrooms to connect

Taxi cab ride and dash suspect charged by police An Oliver man is facing a number of criminal charges after refusing to pay his taxi cab fare in Lake Country. The Lake Country RCMP received a report of an unpaid taxi cab fare, Jan. 15 at 8:54 a.m. “The suspect was reportedly picked up in the Lake Country area, driven to a destination in Vernon and returned back to Lake Country where he fled the cab, refusing to pay for the sizable fare,” said Const. Kris Clark. “The suspect male left both personal items and suspected stolen property behind in the taxi cab which was turned over to police to investigate.” The male suspect, 29, later showed up at the Lake Country RCMP Detachment, in another taxi cab, in possession of additional suspected stolen property, at which point he was taken into custody without incident. The man faces possible criminal charges of fraud, obstructing a peace officer and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000. He was later released from police custody on a promise to appear in court on April 7.

scooter. The man made his way across the eastbound lanes and police were told that the inner lane of westbound traffic had stopped for him to continue,” said Const. Kris Clark, in a press release. “The man proceeded to cross the westbound lanes but the outer lane was still flowing. “The man was struck by a grey GMC Sierra, the impact of which threw him off his scooter. The man suffered serious injuries and was rushed to

hospital in critical condition. He succumbed to his injuries later that afternoon.” A detailed scene survey was conducted by an RCMP collision reconstructionist but the analysis of that information is not yet complete. Speed and alcohol are not considered factors at this time. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with any information about the accident is asked to call RCMP Const. Schneider at 250-9805353.

tle which has devastated western pine forests. More than one billion cubic metres of mature pine trees have been killed across more than 19 million hectares of forest land, mostly in British Columbia and Alberta. Prof. Janice Cooke, of the University of Alberta, is principal investigator for the project, Turning Risk into Action for the Mountain Pine Beetle, funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada’s Strategic Network Grants program and partners of the TRIA Network. UBCO associate professor Lael Parrott, with the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, is collaborating with Scott Heckbert, senior researcher at Alberta Innovates and an adjunct faculty member, to lead one of four themes of research, focusing on assessing and quantifying landscape-scale impacts. These include impacts on the availability of species habitats, recreational opportunities, hydrological cycles and a range of other ecosystem services on the landscape. This part of the project is supported by $364,000 from the overall grant. Ecosystem services are described as the benefits derived from ecosystems by humans, such as food, water, air and recreation. Parrott, an expert in complex systems, human-environment systems modeling and social-ecological networks, and Heckbert, specializing in ecological economics and complex systems modeling, will analyze and assess the vulnerability and resilience of communities located in areas of predicted beetle range expansion to potential changes in ecosystem services on the landscape. The project includes mapping and modeling the impact of the mountain pine beetle epidemic for B.C. and Alberta now and in the future. The results will help determine which parts of predicted areas of beetle spread are the most vulnerable and identify appropriate intervention strategies and management practices.

GAGE Bolduc, a student at Central School, works on a project in the wood shop located in the basement of the

historic Kelowna school building.

EnD OF WInTER

Century-old school remains relevant

Learning from A3

to teachers and other students on the other side of the world through computers and other high-tech equipment. Teachers use smart boards instead of chalkboards and computers are available throughout the building. According to principal Curtis Schreiber, what Central offers today is an opportunity for students, both young and old, to continue their education even if they cannot do it through their neighbourhood school. He said in one case, a man in his 70s returned to school to complete his high school education after quitting school many years earlier in a bid to show his granddaughter the value of education. With 250 students who attend classes at Central and another 1,600 who participate in distance education programs originating from the school, the Grand Old Lady is showing she is still relevant. But back in 1914, when the doors of the new, $75,000 school opened, the equipment available now for teaching were not envisioned. Back then it was strictly the three Rs. ••• The school, designed by Lethbridge, Alta., architect George Nobles and built by local contractor Alfred Ivy’s company, was built to look imposing. It was sited on a four-acre piece of land and intentionally built on a raised basement with a berm added to give it a more stately look. Students were not allowed to use the front doors of the school—they

entered and exited at the rear or at the sides—and were not allowed to play on the lawns in front of the school. They were reserved for class photographs and special occasions. The school was heated by two large boilers in the basement, fuelled by wood which was stacked up out back. There was no air conditioning system but, according to Ottenbreit, the ventilation system was designed in such as way that there was airflow that helped cool the building inside. The windows, which took up more wall space than typical schools of the time, were described as being large with the students eyesight in mind. The aim was to provide as much natural light as possible. The building still has its original windows, the result of a $400,000 renovation two years ago. Last year, the brickwork on the building was repointed as part of the ongoing maintenance. “The district has been very diligent in keeping it up,” said Baxter. As a local heritage building—and one of the last historic buildings remaining in the city— work at Central is done in such a way as to maintain that historic integrity. But that has not stopped additions inside that have helped it provide educational opportunities for its students. A woodshop and an arts room have been added in the basement, as well as other facilities for its modern day students. “There are challenges working in a 100-yearold building, said Diane Bertram, administrative assistant at Central. For

instance, staff are scattered throughout the building rather than being centrally located. And the building is one designed for Kelowna of the early 1900s, not 2014.  But, as Central has show over the last 100 years, it is resilient and will continue to serve the community for years to come. The Central School

centennial celebration is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, with the official opening ceremony at 11 a.m. A time capsule buried 25 years ago will be opened, with items on display. There will be entertainment, demonstrations and the heritage classroom will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At 12:30 a birthday cake for the school will be cut.

DUI law needs random breath testing

To the editor: Re: Paul Hergott’s col-n umn: Cops May Not be Inl Driver’s Seat to Act on Prob-h able Grounds Suspicion, Jan.n m 9 Capital News. I read with interest Paul Hergott’s column in the January 9, 2014 edition of your paper. Unfortunately, Paul has not read the law wrong and it is true that we need to call out our lawmakers to fix the glaring problem that our law enforcement officers cannot test drivers at random for being impaired behind the wheel. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Canada has been working at bringing “random breath testing” to Canada for a number of years now. Random breath testing is a roadside breath screening test to detect impaired drivers. It is used mainly at stationary check stops where every passing driver is required to stop and give a breath sample. Drivers remain in their cars, and the process is routine, quick and causes minimal delays for sober drivers. In New Zealand, Australia M

Concept of bullying is getting way out of whack

P

ink isn’t really my colour. That’s the simplest reason why I hit delete yesterday morning when an offer to buy a shirt for the upcoming anti-bullying day appeared in my inbox. The more complicated reason is that everything about Pink Shirt Day is cringe-worthy. From the commodification of the issue to the desire to capitalize on herd mentality to cultivate individual empowerment, it’s bothersome. That’s not to say it’s not rooted in something worthwhile. The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who showed character and empathy—the key ingredients to snuffing out bullying. In 2007, they bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a

KATHARTIC

Kathy Michaels Grade 9 peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school. Pink Shirt Day came to B.C. in 2008, when then-premier of British Columbia Gordon Campbell proclaimed Feb. 27 to be the provincial anti-bullying day. But from then on things went a bit haywire. That’s when we collectively fostered hysteria around the idea of bullying and mislabelled criminal acts as

“bullying.” Worst though, is the fact “bullying” continued on, seemingly undeterred by pink shirts, which someone somewhere is making a mint from. We also created a culture of victims and aggressors, when we should have

started a conversation on character and empathy. One thing that always comes to mind when the pink shirts start being sold is a call I answered a couple of years ago, following a flood of national bullying stories. A family had just moved to the area, and apparently an elementary age boy in said family liked to play video games that one of his peers thought to be childish. When said peer taunted him about it, the boy punched him in the face. As is usually the case with violence, the puncher got in trouble with the school, which the mother couldn’t understand. Her baby was being bullied. He was a victim. It had to stop. Of course, due to her son’s fists of

▼ VISIBLE ADDRESSES

TImeLeSS QUaLITY & COmFOrT

Reflective address signs should be required To the editor: Many frustrated drivers would agree with Harold Redekop (Kelowna Addresses Are Not Displayed, Jan. 14 Capital News)—every property owner should be mandated to install or have installed a reflective civic sign at the entrance to their home or business. Although many are visible, countless addresses are virtually impossible to see in the daytime, let alone at night.

Surprisingly, even when home owners or businesses are informed how difficult it is to find them, excuses galore are pulled out of the hat. Everyone who falls into that category should stand outside at night and imagine how difficult it must be for an emergency responders, taxis, friends or delivery men of every ilk to locate them. Since reflective civic numbers are not a re-

ality at the moment, the more pressing question becomes: Where can I get one? I would suggest you Google “reflective address signs Kelowna,” call the fire hall or visit city hall to find a supplier. Installing a sign could save your life or the life of a loved one. Judith Mathon, Kelowna

▼ QUIET THE OPINIONATED

Opinionated columnist should be ‘adjusted’ To the editor: Re: Tom Fletcher’s weekly column, Another Year of Enviro-wars Begins, Jan. 7 Capital News. I don’t believe your newspaper should publish regularly a one-sided, head-in-the-sand columnist’s opinion, which to me is so obviously devoid

of real life facts. I am referring to Fletcher’s column in which he says, while the planet is proven to be warming up drastically, that the polar ice is melting at an alarming rate, he insists these actual facts are figments of a few scientists and enviro-nuts.

His imaginations are so far off the mark of any reality, that even a fiveyear-old can see the planet is definitely facing a huge catastrophe because of fossil fuel extractions and other human destructive practices. Yet he calls people who see reality and want

to change it as empty-headed, stupid, neurotic, etc. In reality, he is the empty-headed one, and he makes your newspaper look bad by allowing him to regularly spew off complete garbage. A good columnist tries to see both sides, and

carefully balances reality, opinion and proof before he/she opens their mouth. I would thoroughly appreciate it if Tom Fletcher adjusted his context to a realistic rant, or not rant at all. Helene Stuhlberg, Kelowna

▼ SENIOR CARE

Kiwanis Tower implements information program To the editor: The Central Okanagan Kiwanis Community Services Society, owners of the Kiwanis Tower, is pleased to announce that they have undertaken a co-operative initiative with the Central Okanagan Branch of FSNA (Federal Retirees National Association) to implement and introduce the MEDWATCH program

into the Kiwanis seniors independent living building located at 1130 Lawrence Ave. in downtown Kelowna.  MEDWATCH is a lifesaving program whereby a resident completes an information sheet listing their physical conditions and medication taken. This is placed in a vial which is then placed in the refrigerator,

and a special identification sticker placed on the refrigerator door. In case of a medical emergency, first responders and/or ambulance attendees will look for the label and can quickly gather critical medication information to aid in crisis management and provide this to the hospital emergency room staff. To assist individuals,

the Medicine Shoppe® Pharmacies in Kelowna and West Kelowna have partnered with FSNA to provide the vials and assist people in updating their medication records and completing the forms. We are so pleased that the local branch of FSNA approached us offering to partner with us on this initiative. MEDWATCH has been well received by

the Tower residents and the implementation of this program into Kelowna, and the Kiwanis building in particular, could well save a life. Larry Crabb, FSNA-Kelowna Bob Bissell, president, Central Okanagan Kiwanis Community Services Society

‘Character’ replaced by ‘victim’ Pink from A9 fury, she had a hard time pitching the story, both to me and the police, who she called first. Mostly, however, all I could think of when she was talking to us was how she missed a major opportunity. Where there could have been a conversa-

tion about the right way to treat someone or resolve conflict, she misguidedly told her son that he was a victim. Conflict—not pervasive mistreatment and abuse—is part of growing up, and for the most part her son proved little more than it was an area where he needed some work. In a situation where he

could have built character and learned empathy he was told he was a victim, which is a hard place to grow from, proving yet again that not everyone is pretty in pink. Kathy Michaels is a Capital News reporter. kmichaels @kelownacapnews.com

Housing market cost increases outpace rise in salary income

A

lthough I believe most of us should pursue careers that we actually get some fulfillment out of, there will always be those who pick a career, job or profession because they want to make as much money as possible. In other words, the salary is their motivator. If you look at the cost of buying a house in Canada, you can see why many young adults are doing just that. Today, it takes a significant wage for most to own a home if they are just starting out. Although prices have dropped recently in Kelowna, over the past 20 years the cost of buying a home has risen. In 1994, you could purchase—on average, and depending on the age of the house and location—a home for about $170,000. Today, that same house would probably sit at anywhere between $350,000 and $400,000. The problem is that wages have not kept up with inflation, especially in the housing market. To afford a $400,000 home you need about a $20,000 down payment. You can expect to pay at least $1,500 a month, if not more, for you monthly mortgage payment. To qualify to buy this home (taking in account a number of factors such as taxes and other costs associated with home ownership), you would need to earn a minimum of $105,000 annually. Right now the median pre-tax household income in Kelowna is around $50,000. For families with two adults and at least one child, this pre-tax income rises to around $82,000. Both of these incomes are significantly less than the $105,000 required to buy a house in Kelowna. The probability is

For the record

An incorrect date was published for an Okanagan Reads Book Club event hosted by the K & S Elite Equestrian Centre in Kelowna. The story indicated the event was to take place this Saturday, but in fact the visit by children’s books author Julie White took place last Saturday.

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens slim of a young adult who either just graduated from high school, college or university, securing a $105,000-a-year job. Many would have to consider renting, or continue to live at home, where they might be able to save enough money for a larger down payment. If salary is to be the driver, the best options for students interested in only the money are engineering, health care and trades. A recent report indicated that young men between 17 and 24 years of age who opted out of college and university and decided to work in the oil patch have seen a significant increase in their wages. These wages have led to decreases in enrolments by men in post-secondary education in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. Although I understand why a young adult would be want to make a good wage, especially in light of the housing costs in Canada, I think the plan to go straight from high school to employment is short-sighted. There are many certificate, diploma and degree programs in colleges and universities across Canada that can get you into well-paying jobs

either working in the oil patch or working in an industry associated with it. With a post-secondary credential chances are you will be one of the last to be laid off during any downturn and the one most likely to find employment elsewhere. And that’s why if salary is driving your decision about what to take at college or university, it’s wise to invest energy in

career planning that will help you secure long-term employment with a relatively good wage. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. Comments can be forwarded to jmuskens@okanagan. bc.ca.

ART EXHIBIT

The Alternator Cen-

tre for Contemporary Art welcomes Geotrope, a multidisciplinary exhibition by Ella Morton. Using a device known as zoetrope—a spinning cylinder that illustrates motion in a series of images—Morton has created a kinetic installation involving images of Canadian and American landscape. The photos are on semi-transparent 4x5inch film, so that when the zoetrope spins, the images blend together in animation. Through movement and imagery, Geotrope explores how we relate to time and place, and how we confront mystery and the unknown. Extending into public space will be the installation Roadside Majestic: Celebrating the (Un) Charm of North America, which explores the culture of highway travel. The interactive artwork will be a large and vaguely drawn map of North America with humorous landmarks written all over it. Participants are invited to write comments on provided markers and place them on the map. Photo contributions can also be made on the Roadside Majestic blog, which will accompany the installation and can be found at http://roadside-

majestic.blogspot.ca. The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art welcomes the public to view the exhibition between Jan. 31 and March 15. There will be a reception and artist talk on Saturday, Feb. 15, 3 p.m. The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is located in Kelowna at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 421 Cawston Ave.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

This hi new Q50 llooks k great, has a wonderful interior, power to spare and solid handling dynamics. Zack Spencer

Visit the Q50 photo gallery at DrivewayBC.ca

2014 Infiniti Q50 challenges the old order Infiniti has had a bit of an identity crisis over the past year with a wholesale change in the way it names its products. Gone is the JX crossover, it’s called the QX60 now and the G 37 sedan has been replaced with the Q50 sedan. Q signifies for cars and QX for crossovers or SUVs. The outgoing G37 was already a very worthy on-road performer but a bit too simplistic in the inside. Now, Infiniti has taken things up a notch with the Q50, adding a dynamic look, sumptuous interior and class leading technology. Looks It could be argued that the current BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class are a bit conservative, while this Q50 and the major competitor, Lexus IS, are much edgier. This is especially true with the front grille. The rest of the Q50 is nicely sculpted, with flowing lines and an almost elegant rear end. Sold as a base model, sport trim, all wheel drive (AWD), premium, and even a hybrid, there is a broad market for this sedan. Starting at $37,500 and ramping up to the AWD sport model at $49,950, there is a substantial discount with the Q50 when you compare it to a similarly equipped BMW. The base model comes with 17-inch wheels but most of the higher trim levels are equipped with 19-inch wheels. The car seen here is the AWD premium model starting at $43,400. Inside The Q50 centre console is very attractive with two screens placed for radio functions and the second for the

The Lexus IS350 AWD is another premium offering from Japan, and it starts at a very competitive $44,000. As much as the Japanese automakers like to challenge the German makers, they really end up competing with each other. Yes, this is a worthy car but the one thing you cannot factor into the buying decision is the badge appeal that storied brands like Mercedes, BMW and Audi provide.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

Safety Tip: When extreme winter road conditions hit, it’s a good idea to think about whether you even need to get behind the wheel. If you have the option, consider public transit or carpool with some who has a vehicle prepared for the conditions. Also consider leaving for work just a little later to allow crews to clear the roads.

Five fun coupes: for singles

Kia Forte Koup.

So, you’re not married. That’s OK! You don’t have kids? No worries. You pretty much have the pick of the litter when it comes to buying a car. Why? Because you don’t necessarily have specific requirements that need to be met when selecting a vehicle. Meaning, you don’t need to consider having a large enough backseat to fit car seats, unless you want a big back seat for other reasons. Like, you have a dog that weighs as much as an adult. Or you don’t need four doors because you’re pretty much the only one going to be inside the cabin at any given time. Unless your profession requires you to haul around equipment or gear, you don’t have to buy a crossover, minivan, sedan or SUV if you don’t want to. That said, many singles I know decide to get something a little less “practical” in the grand scheme of things. Less practicality is usually spelled with five letters—coupe. So, to those individuals who are the alpha of their one-per-

son wolf pack, here are a few coupes under $30K to consider. Honda Accord Coupe: Base MSRP $26,400 I’m starting off with the Accord because it’s a cool car. The current generation has so much going for it and Many singles I definitely has developed know decide to get more personality in the something a little redesign. You have the option of two engines: a more less ‘practical’ in the economical 2.4L 4-cylinder grand scheme of or a more powerful 3.5L V6. Either way, you can get them things. equipped with a 6-speed Alexandra Straub manual or a CVT transmission. Only the EX-L Navi trim with the V6 has the option of a 6-speed automatic transmission. No matter how you slice it, you’re getting a great car. Better yet, it has a decent cargo capacity of 379L so you could easily dump your hockey gear inside. The interior is spacious and comfortable, and heck, it looks good. MINI Coupe/Roadster: Base MSRP $25,950/$28,900 With room for two, even the base model of MINI Coupe or Roadster is a hoot. Specs-wise, it has the least impressive engine of the lot (only putting out 121 horsepower,) but that can be overlooked because of via driving dynamics. It has one of the best manual gearboxes for a car of its size and has an abundance of pep. They’re not cheap, though. So it has that working against it in some regards. And you could argue that a Mazda MX-5 is a better value (you won’t be wrong) but it’s still loads of fun. Dodge Challenger: Base MSRP $26,995 If you’re driving a Dodge Challenger, you’re getting noticed. You don’t even need to have the grunt and roar of the SRT’s 6.4L V8 HEMI to turn heads. Inside and out, this two-door has style and power. The base SXT trim comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 and 305 horsepower. Kia Forte Koup: Base MSRP $20,550 For just over $20K, the Kia Forte Koup is a solid value. And it’s not a bad looking car either. Inside, the interior is well finished and isn’t cheap. Furthermore, you have many great standard amenities that come with the base model like 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, heated front seats, remote keyless entry, air conditioning and more. VW GTI: Base MSRP $29,375 The 3-door VW GTI is one of my favourite cars. The frontwheel, German engineered bundle of excitement has poise and pizzazz, along with a fabulous interior and a tried and tested engine. What’s great about the GTI is that it works for all ages. You could be 16 and driving it, or 60, and you’d still look good. You wouldn’t look out of place and people would give you nods of approval. Granted, the current generation is on its way out and the seventh generation (2014 model year) is coming soon. So if you want a killer deal on a 2013, now’s about as good of a time as any.

some of the Toyota 4runner buyers. It looked promising but never completely took

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is on a quest, to get your family where you need to go on as little fuel as possible. Looks: One of the biggest changes last year was the switch from body-on-frame to a unibody construction. This reduced the overall weight, which makes a big difference on the fuel economy. The shape and design characteristics of this truck have changed, much smoother lines, and more aerodynamic. I remember the first Pathfinder introduced in 1986 and aimed at capturing

travel off-road. This version has done this, taking design cues and comfort from the Nissan Rogue and creating a larger crossover capable of transporting seven. In The Cab: My tester was the Platinum edition. It came equipped with leather seats with 8 way power adjustability, 4 way power for the front passenger, EZ flex seating system with 2nd row 60/40 split fold-flat bench seat, and 3rd row 50/50 split fold flat reclining bench seat. The leather wrapped steering wheel is heated and is a nice feature. There is plenty of wood tone trim but it is not overdone, giving it a rich feel. Bose audio system with 13 speakers, AM/FM/CD, SiriusXM, auxiliary audio input jack, USB connection, streaming audio via Bluetooth, steering wheel mounted audio controls and speed sensitive volume control and just some of the comforts you will find in the Pathfinder Platinum. The around view monitor uses four cameras to create a composite image from above and displays it on the touch screen monitor. This helps show the vehicle’s position relative to the lines around the parking space and guides you in easily. Safety first: Nissan’s advanced airbag

system include, dual stage front airbags, driver and front passenger seat mounted side impact, and roof mounted curtain side impact airbags with rollover sensor. Traction control (TSC) and vehicle dynamic control (VDC) are standard on all models. Power: The engine is a 2.5-litre 4 cylinder with a 15kw, power regenerating electric motor, powered by lithium-ion cells and a dual clutch system that transfers power from the electric motor and the engine. This system generates 250 hp. The transmission is Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) The All-mode 4x4 I-system allows select ability between 2WD, Auto, or 4WD lock. An independent front strut and multilink rear gives the vehicle a comfortable ride. Pump frequency: 7.8/7.1 L/100 km (city/highway) as tested Warranty support: Basic coverage—3year/ 60,000 kms Powertrain—5 years/100,000 kms Corrosion surface—3 years/ 60,000 kms Roadworthy: This vehicle does remind me of the Nissan Rogue. It is larger but feels very similar and that’s a good thing. I think Nissan is heading in the right direction with this vehicle. If studies show limited use off-road, then why spend money making this an off-road vehicle? It has the ability to drive down a gravel road or up to the ski hill but Nissan has made sure it is also as comfortable as a road car and as fuel-efficient as it can be. Verdict: I think Nissan thought outside of the box on this one and was not afraid to start fresh and create something new.

Did somebody change the curb lane into the fast lane and not tell me? A day never passes when I don’t see drivers zipping down major drags in the curb lane, cutting in at the last second to avoid piling into a parked car. As soon as they’re past the obstacle they’re back in the gutter lane, spraying every poor pedestrian along the way. What drives-u-crazy? keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

Rockets’ captaincy agrees with Bowey–his team’s No. 1 Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

MARISSA BAECKER/CONTIRBUTOR

CAPTAIN Madison Bowey and the Kelowna Rockets are in Victoria this weekend for a WHL doubleheader with the Royals.

It’s easy to understand why Madison Bowey is a pretty happy camper—or should we say captain— these days. In addition to his team being the runaway leaders in the WHL, the Kelowna Rockets are the No. 1-ranked team across the entire Canadian Hockey League. Throw in the fact that the club is coming to the end of gruelling road stretch which has featured 16 of the last 18 games on the road, and the 18-yearold defenceman has another reason to smile. And one more stat: since Bowey took over as the Rockets’ captain Nov. 1, the WHL club has posted an eye-popping 27-3-0 record. “It’s been awesome so

far, the team is gelling and playing some really good hockey,” said Bowey, a Winnipeg native who has 14 goals and 39 points in 43 games this season to lead all blue liners on the Rockets. “Obviously it’s always fun when you’re winning, and it’s great to come to the rink everyday feeling good about our game. Hopefully we can keep it going.” Bowey and the Rockets will be in Victoria for two games this weekend, Friday and Saturday, before returning to Prospera Place next Wednesday to host the Everett Silvertips. The team will then play 11 of its next 14 games on home ice. If all goes as planned, the extended dose of home cooking should pretty much help the Rockets sew up the WHL’s overall title.

Still, as smooth as the road has been for the Rockets this season, Bowey understands the sometimes fickle nature of the game and how unpredictable factors, such as injuries and momentum changes, can come into play. “Our coaching staff and our leaders in the room, we’re not overconfident and we can’t get arrogant about it,” Bowey said. “This is not even close to being over, we have a long way to go, and a lot of things can happen yet. We just need to keep focusing on what we’ve been doing and finish out the season the right way.” As for the first twoplus months as Rockets captain, Bowey couldn’t be more appreciative of his new role. “It’s pretty cool being a leader on this team right

now, you couldn’t ask for a better group of guys,” he said. “There are a lot of guys who are part of (the leadership group). (Alternates) Myles (Bell), Tyson (Baillie), Damon (Severson) and Tyrel (Goulbourne) are all big parts of this and we’re just running with it. We all have the same mindset.” Meanwhile, recently-acquired forward Marek Tvrdon will make his debut with the Rockets this weekend, as Kelowna battles the Royals Friday and Saturday nights at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. The Royals are the only WHL team to have beaten the Rockets twice (36-5-0-2) this season. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Surging Warriors host Vipers The West Kelowna Warriors look to continue their march up the BCHL’s Interior Division standings when they battle the rival Vernon Vipers on Friday night. Face off at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m. The Warriors (24-122-2), who are unbeaten in seven games (6-0-1), are a point ahead of Vernon for second spot in the Interior Division, and seven back of the first-place Penticton Vees. West Kelowna beat the Vees for the third straight time, 2-1 on Wednesday night in Penticton. The Warriors had beaten Penticton just once

in the previous three seasons combined. “It’s very important based on the past couple of years, always having trouble with that team,” said Warriors defence man Adam Plant. “Coming out and being able to put three wins together against them is really important for our confidence.” Plant, with a power play goal, late in the second period put the Warriors ahead 2-0 and accounted for the game winner. Fellow blueliner Taki Pantziris scored West Kelowna’s other goal in the first. Brad McClure scored

Penticton’s lone goal when he tipped a Paul Stoykewych drive past Andy Desautels with six minutes remaining in regulation time. Desautels’ status heading into the game was in doubt after he left the Warriors’ previous contest (Jan. 10) with an apparent upper-body injury. However, the 19-year-old felt strong enough to play in the key divisional matchup, and earned first star honours on the strength of his 23 saves. The Warriors will host Port Alberni on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

WARRIORS RAP…

Warriors’ forward Jason Cotton is listed 118th among North American skaters in Central Scouting’s latest rankings. A native of Plano, Texas, Cotton had 16 goals and 40 points in 34 games with West Kelowna this season. Cotton is already committed to Northeastern (NCAA Div.1), but has yet to declare when he’s heading to university… Former Warriors’ captain Alex Grieve is a finalist for the 2014 Hobey Baker Award as the top player in NCAA men’s hockey.

Kelowna karate athletes qualify for Team B.C.

KELOWNA United president Mark Krehel (right) is assisted by Kelowna city councillor Luke Stack

during the official grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new KU soccer dome on Saturday afternoon. Located beside the H2O Fitness and Adventure Centre, the air-supported dome provides yearround training for local soccer players as well as other user groups. The $900,000 facility features a 45 by 70 yard artificial playing surface, which will be covered for six months of each year, and open for the rest.

Four athletes from the Taneda Karate Dojo will be headed to the Karate Canada National Championships in Richmond this weekend after qualifying for the event through a Team B.C. selection tournament. Only the top two athletes in each division will represent B.C. at the Nationals to be held Jan. 17 to 19 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Jackson Tribe, Will Wright, Matt Taneda and Rhiannon Jones will be competing in the event while sensei Chris Taneda will also be at the event as a technical committee member as well as the grading panel for black belts. As far as the athletes

go, Tribe will be making his third visit to nationals and will be looking to earn his second straight gold medal after winning gold in kumite in his division in 2013. He also placed third in 2012. Will Wright will be competing in his second National Championships and with one more year of competition under his belt, will be looking to improve on a top 5 performance last year. Matt Taneda is back on the scene and will be competing in his first nationals since 2007 and his fifth National Championship tournament overall. Over the last few years Taneda has spent time training in Japan and has even had some MMA ex-

perience including being a training partner for local UFC star Rory MacDonald. It will be the first national experience for Jones, who has been training every day since qualifying for the nationals. A well rounded athlete and musician, Jones also is a member of the Kelowna Youth Symphony and the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra. The four local athletes are being coached at the nationals by Mike Ditson of the Taneda Karate Dojo. Ditson has been a member of the B.C. team’s coaching staff since 2009 and has been a coach for the Junior National team the past two years.

NOTICE of PLEBISCITE On A Plan to Establish an Apple Industry Development Council for British Columbia Apple Producers A plan is proposed to establish an industry council under the BC Farming and Fishing Industries Development Act. The proposed name of the council is the Apple Research and Promotion Agency (ARPA). ARPA will have the authority to collect levies and fulfill the objectives that are outlined in the published plan. The Council will secure a larger funding base, from government matching funds and potentially from a levy on imported apples (a proposal is currently being developed by a national committee of apple producers). ARPA will promote apple consumption, as well as horticultural and packing research. The Council will represent all apple producers regardless of how their apples are packed or sold. All eligible growers (farming over two acres of apples) should have received a voting package and ballot by now. If you are eligible but not registered yet, contact the independent registrar / returning officer at Registrar PO Box 29044 Kelowna, BC V1W 4A7 When contacting the registrar provide your name, address, and statement that you grow over 2 acres of apples. Ballots must be mailed back no later than February 15, 2014.

Ski cross this weekend at Big White The first race in the Western Canada Open Ski Cross Series will be hosted by Big White this weekend, Jan. 18 and 19. The Big White Racers Ski Club has been collaborating with B.C. Alpine and Alberta Alpine to put together an open ski cross series so that existing ski club members as well as members of the public can experience the exhilarating thrill of skiing down the course in groups of four. The series consists of four races: Big White Jan. 18 and 19, Lake Louise Feb. 1 and 2, Prince George March 8 and 9, and back to Lake Louise March 22 and 23). The first day will involve training and qualification runs, the second day will be set up in race heats of four in a knockout format. There will be a consolation round so

every racer will get at least two races. All ski clubs in B.C. and Alberta can participate. It is hoped there will be also representation from at least one ski club from Washington State. Stanley Hayer, former Olympian Ski Cross racer, will be bringing his Alberta Ski Cross team to compete before hitting the NorAm circuit. Coach Dustin Koepke will be leading Big White Racer’s ski cross team in the challenge. Two athletes born in 1999 and 2000 competing in the series will be eligible to represent B.C. in the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George. This program is open to children ages 8 and up, with categories to be arranged by age group. Athletes can register online at www.zone4.ca

Repercussions of concussions T ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel ing. Dr. Mark Gordon, a U.S. interventional endocrinologist, is seen as one of the world experts on traumatic brain injury.  In his review of more than 35,000 articles and his research in addition to his clinical experience, he has come up with a different yet, evidence-based treatment for traumatic brain injuries. The solution is in hormonal regulation. He has stated that closed head injuries have a direct effect on the pituitary gland, a gland found in the very base of our brain safely nestled within the skull.  It is shaped much like an inverted light bulb.  When one has sustained a closed head injury or a TBI, the pituitary gland becomes compromised.  In fact he has found that when the pituitary gland is injured from such an injury, it has a direct effect on a hormonal cascade which can have these deleterious effects.  He has found four hormones, that as a result of injury to the pituitary gland, are also altered.  The first hormone that is affected is usual-

ly growth hormone, followed by testosterone, then thyroid and finally, in the most extreme cases, cortisol. He feels that this aberrant behaviour in these hormones is responsible for the sustained effects of the closed head injury.   Conversely, treatment to this effect, proves to be most efficient. In the journal, Brain Injury, it was stated in an article that TBI poses significant risk to the pituitary gland, leading to elevated risks of diabetes, hypopituitarism and other endocrinopathies.

raumatic brain injury, or TBI, is an injury that can have little to far reaching complications.  It is estimated that in 2006, 46,000 children in the U.S. were taken to the , ,hospital as a result of traumatic brain injuries.  Each year, in the US, it’s estimated 1.7 million adults will sustain a TBI.  n It occurs when an ex, &ternal force or blow is sustained to the skull.  It may be a single episode or a cumulative redsult of several. It can happen at the playground, .contact sports, motor vehicle collision of both low and high velocity and abrupt acceleration and deceleration type injury to the head.  It is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. Symptoms can include headache, vomiting, nausea, lack of motor coordination, dizziness, difficulty balancing, light-headedness, blurred vision or tired eyes, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, fatigue or lethargy, and changes in sleep patterns. Cognitive and emotional symptoms include behavioural or mood changes, confusion, and trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking abnormalities.  At present, I have 11 patients in my clinic who suffer from TBI; six from motor vehicle collisions, three from falls on the ice and two from snowboard-

associated with hypopituitarism often mimic the sequela of TBI, although the severity of symptoms is not necessarily related to the severity of the injury. Patients with TBI-induced hypopituitarism may benefit both physically and psychologically from appropriate hormone replacement therapy (HRT).  Further, it recommends that systematic screening of pituitary function is recommended for all patients with moderate-to-severe TBI at risk of developing pituitary deficits.

If you or someone you know has sustained a traumatic brain injury or reports of such symptoms, have your health practi-

tioner take a good look at the possibility of hormonal imbalances and treat appropriately.

Airport flights grounded by thick fog Jennifer Smith & Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTERS

A thick blanket of fog fell over Kelowna Thursday, wreaking havoc for travellers trying to fly in and out of the valley. “Its been a bit of a frustration for those trying to get somewhere…(It’s) Mother Nature. We have no control,” said Jenelle Hynes, in charge of marketing and media relations for the Kelowna International Airport. Arriving flights require a 251-foot ceiling and one mile visibility, while departing flights need a minimum of a half-mile, according to Hynes, and visibility dropped to a quarter mile or less at times throughout the day. Roughly half a dozen inbound flights and a similar number of outbound flights were cancelled. The Vancouver airport was not faring much better. By mid-afternoon, an Alaskan Airlines flight was circling YLW looking for a break in the thick white blanket; it was likely to be rerouted. “We’re going to be plagued by low-lying cloud for at least a week,” said Doug Lundquist, Environment Canada weather specialist. Without the solar power to burn through the layer, Lundquist said the fog would have to slowly dissipate and become low-lying cloud before lifting. It did leave the area with an unusual layer of hoar frost on trees and branches, crystallizing on much of the foliage along local walking trails.

A FOG rolled into the Okanagan Valley on Thursday playing havoc in Kelowna, most noticeably by delaying flights at the airport due to poor visibility. JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

New meets old in Pittsburgh

CONTRIBUTOR

PITTSBURGH—I’ve never been to a city that loves itself more than Pittsburgh. This is not a criticism. After three days, I also loved Pittsburgh, a quaint, pretty city with interesting people doing interesting things, and a healthy dash of Old World, working-class charm. But—and this is where Pittsburgh won me over—it is not a city impressed with itself. New York, San Francisco and Portland, Ore., are wonderful cities that can’t resist preening when passing mirrors to remind themselves just how wonderful they are. Pittsburgh is a wonderful city that doesn’t even see the mirror. It just turns to its buddies and says, “Hey, yinz guys, let’s go have a beer.” (“Yinz guys” is Pittsburgh speak for “you people”—a dialectical Northern equivalent to “y’all.”) Steeped in spirit and flavour, Pittsburgh can lay claim to being one of our nation’s most underrated cities, with a beauty as breathtaking as it is obvious. The drive from Pittsburgh International Airport follows an unspectacular 20 miles of

rolling-hills suburbia along Interstate Highway 376 and then, after a brief trip through the Fort Pitt Tunnel—bam!—there is Pittsburgh. Situated on a peninsula jutting into an intersection of rivers, the city of 305,000 is gemlike, surrounded by bluffs and bright yellow bridges streaming into its heart. As you emerge from the tunnel, you feel you’ve never seen a more majestic little city: old but familiar, with swooping, curving lines, lushly green (in summer) and cut, as all

great cities should be, by a river or two (or in this case, three). Visiting is the only way to understand the sentiment famously expressed in The New Yorker in 1989, when it ranked Pittsburgh among the world’s most beautiful cities, alongside Paris and St. Petersburg, Russia. “If Pittsburgh were situated somewhere in the heart of Europe, tourists would eagerly journey hundreds of miles out of their way to visit it,” the magazine said. Though Pittsburgh is

forever associated with steelmaking, its heavy industry days are largely gone; the air is cleaner, and the steel mills have become museums, bike trails and green space. The city has embraced food, drink and art while long-quiet neighbourhoods have been infused with fresh bustle. The fascinating downtown—a strange but appealing mix of architecture built up through the decades— sports fresh touches of its own, like the dim, marble-barred gastropub Meat and Potatoes, which

I checked out on a Thursday evening with a couple of natives. “This is pretty classy for Pittsburgh,” said Lisa Sredzienski with a touch of gratitude and amusement as we sipped East Coast craft beer and munched mushroom-truffle flatbread. But she wasn’t complaining. A social and culinary invigoration is afoot in her city. On Butler Street, in the Lawrenceville neighbourhood, there’s Franktuary, a gourmet hot dog place whose offerings include wild-caught salmon sausages and four kinds of poutine. Continue heading up Butler and you’ll find a guitar shop where a gentleman makes repairs in the window for the passing world to see; La Gourmandine, a French bakery where I scored a macaroon sandwich stuffed with litchi mousse and raspberries; and 720 Music, a hip hodgepodge smelling of fresh coffee grounds with records and T-shirts for sale along the walls. “How do you describe this?” I asked. “A record store meets coffee shop meets clothes store meets alternative bookstore?” “Something that exists See Pittsburgh A34

Pittsburgh: ‘exists nowhere else’ Pittsburgh from A33 nowhere else,” said the barista. After a day of walking through Lawrenceville, I felt the same way about that neighbourhood. Even while embracing a 21st-century version of itself, Pittsburgh

has firmly retained a proud, blue-collar sense of its history. It relishes the concept of the “yinzer”— based on the term “yinz guys”—which simply equates to someone from Pittsburgh. You’ll see plenty of yinzer bumper stickers, buttons and even baby onesies. Search

for the Internet comedy “Pittsburgh Dad,” and, even if the humour might be debatable, the idea of the yinzer will be clear. One distinct characteristic of yinzers is their love of sports. As one local who had previously lived in New York and Austin, Texas, observed, he had
