CLOSE-UP

Celebration is a family affair The Year of the Horse The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a 12-year cycle and each year is related to an animal sign. The signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Each animal is associated with an earthly branch such as fire, water, metal or wood. Find your sign on the adjacent zodiac wheel.

From A1 It’s often referred to as Chinese New Year, although it’s celebrated as the most significant holiday in a number of other Asian countries, including Tibet, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, and Wen Lee’s home country, Taiwan. And to put the degree of required revelry into perspective, Lunar New Year celebrations in those countries are like Canada’s Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve all rolled up into one. So when Lee, who has been in the Okanagan for just five months, found out that there was an opportunity to take part and shape the college’s Lunar New Year themed party, she jumped in. “This is so important, for us. You have no idea…We are so grateful and thankful,” Lee told one of the event organizers, OC’s director of international education, Russel Boris. “It’s an honour to have people for us to share this part of our culture with.” Although OC has held Lunar New Year cele-

brations in the past, Boris said they’ve made some changes. This year the international department wanted to give those participating a chance to learn, and those for whom the occasion is most dear, a chance to lead. For Lee and fellow student Xinyuan Peng that means educating fellow students and community participants about some Chinese mysticism, the customs and cuisine. “We want to give Westerners a chance to understand Chinese traditional culture, and the Chinese Zodiac,” said Lee. Peng, who will emcee the event, noted they’ll be teaching participants traditional paper-cutting and brush writing. There will be customary tea and, for those who have yet to master their chopsticks, a skill-building game. Of course, they will also bring some of the pomp of the occasion to OC, and to do that they enlisted the help of the Kelowna branch of the Chinese Freemasons. Kelowna’s Shui Lee will be bringing the

Chinese lion/dragon costume to the party, and seven international students will be tucked under its body as it snakes its way around the festivities. Boris will also be involved in the process. “I’ll be waking the dragon,” he said. “I was told to tap him three times on the forehead to wake him up.” The dancing lion with the dragon-like body is among the oldest and most popular Chinese New Year traditions, and Lee explained it’s done for luck and to clear the path for new beginnings. It’s also designed to expel evil spirits—Nian, in particular. Peng explained that Nian is a monster. A gruesome creature from Chinese mythology that, depending on the version of legend read, lives either under the sea or in the mountains. He comes out of hiding for the new year and goes on the attack. Luckily, according to legend, Nian is sensitive to loud noises, which is why the New Year

celebration is known for bringing a cacophony of sound, to wherever it’s being held. “(We) hit drums and cymbals and play music that is uplifting and exciting,” said Lee. Chopping wood and sparking fire crackers are pretty normal as well. Nian is also apparently afraid of the colour red, which is why everyone dons the colour. On a slightly unusual note, it’s been said that for those who are born in the year of the horse, red undergarments are a must. They’ll fend off Nian, and all other misfortune in the year ahead. Lee and Peng explained, so much of what happens during the New Year celebration— which actually runs from tonight until Valentine’s day—is based on superstition. The cleaning to get rid of negative energies, the food eaten, incense burned games, music played, even the way time is spent for the seven days; all of it has significance. For example, sugary snacks are especial-

is known as patient recovery,” said Brad Fraser, regional training co-ordinator for the Justice Institute of B.C.’s paramedic academy in Kelowna. The training allows the paramedic students to see how firefighters would respond to an emergency situation, and how they can make it easier to access the patients. “They key is, if you can sometimes let these departments have a couple of minutes, they’ll make your life so much easier, because they can literally take a roof off,” said Fraser.

Shannon, who was acting as a victim, said the simulation seemed very realistic. “We were doing practise maneuvers on chairs (earlier today). So to bring it from a chair to an actual vehicle…it’s different,” said Shannon. She said she was a bit nervous when the firefighters started using various tools, such as the jaws of life, to pull apart pieces of the vehicle as she sat inside. “There’s a lot of heavy-duty tools that I’ve never been around before; to have them that close

The training exercise was also beneficial for West Kelowna firefighters; it gave them a chance to practise their extrication techniques. Capt. Pat Harmata with West Kelowna Fire Rescue said firefighters frequently do vehicle extrication training at PickN-Pull in West Kelowna. He estimated the fire department goes through approximately 40 cars per

year. The training with the paramedic students takes place about twice a year, he added. He said it’s important for students to learn how other emergency responders will act in similar emergency situations. “It gets them on the same page as us, so we’re talking the same language” said Harmata. “When we start talking about what we’re doing and how we’re doing it, they’ll have an understanding of what’s happening on the outside of the vehicle.” wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

▼ DAIN PHILLIPS MURDER

Two Hells Angels plead guilty to manslaughter charge Two full-patch members of the Hells Angels admitted to their role in the deadly 2011 attack of Kelowna man Dain Phillips. Norman Cocks and Robert Thomas, two of the ringleaders of what local media dubbed the Rutland 7, pleaded guilty to manslaughter Thursday, according to the court registry. The two had originally been charged with second-degree murder, but agreed to a plea on the lesser charge, the Vancouver Sun reported. At the time of their arrest, Cocks and Thomas were the first full patch-wearing Hells Angels charged with murder in the club’s 28-year history in B.C. Even with a guilty plea to a lesser charge, they’re still forging dubious new ground for the biker gang. Phillips’ family was reportedly not in attendance when the guilty pleas were entered at a Vancouver courtroom, which is a continuation of the silence they’ve held since June 2011, when Phillips fell victim to a fatal beating. Their only words were found in an online obituary, which read: “Dad could be best characterized as a hard working man with a lust for life, and he was a family man in every sense of the term. Dad served his family with all of his huge heart up until the minute he died.” Others remembered

him on an online memorial as a “gentle giant who never had a bad word to say about anyone.” Police, who put significant efforts into the case, even said they were confounded by the violence of the case. “This is a senseless murder over a dispute for what?” said Supt. Pat Fogarty at a 2011 press conference where he announced charges against Cocks and Thomas. Fogarty insisted that the father of three wasn’t embroiled in any gang or criminal activity June 12, 2011, when he was beaten to death at the intersection of McCurdy and Gibson roads. In fact, the fatal series of events that initially appeared to be part of little more than an outdoor brawl, shaped into a story about a father attempting to “do the right thing” for his family. “This is a sad and tra-

gic event involving a father simply trying to protect his kids,” said Fogarty. “Dain Phillips’ sons were in a dispute with the McCrae brothers who were associated with Norm Cocks of the Hells Angels…(they) were ordinary citizens in a dispute with the wrong people.” While there’s no information on what prompted the dispute, police alleged Phillips set up a meeting so both parties could discuss and work out their differences and put an end to threats that had been escalating in recent weeks. That plan went off course when, en route to the meeting, Phillips’ car crossed paths with the other two vehicles and a decision was made to pull over at the vacant intersection. The 6-foot-3 man then allegedly exited his car and faced a torrent of blows from bats, hammers and other weapons

that police have chosen not to disclose. With the 51-year-old on the ground, suffering from his injuries, his alleged assailants then piled back into the two cars they arrived in. Phillips was transported to Kelowna General Hospital and died the next day as a result of his injuries, with his wife and family at his side. With the guilty pleas squared away, sentencing awaits the two gangsters. The rest of the socalled Rutland 7— Cocks’s father Robert, Daniel and Matt McRae and Anson Schell —are scheduled for their trials next week. Charges against Thomas Vaughan, were stayed. Both Cocks and Thomas have been in custody since their arrest in July 2011.

To the editor: The City of Kelowna has floated the idea of having a tourist centre at the western end of Queensway and I believe there are preliminary plans to include a two-storey building with offices above the proposed tourist centre. I think it would be a preposterous idea to put yet another concrete box on the only remaining piece of open waterfront in the city. Why not purchase the Fintry Queen, haul her out of the lake before she sinks, and convert her into a tourist centre? Maybe add a tea garden on the lake side that would also serve the Stuart Park ice rink in the winter. Surely this would be a more attractive and historically appealing option. Of course it wouldn’t bring in any revenue for the city coffers but offices are not going to attract or delight any tourists and would definitely

Even if you don’t live in Metro Vancouver, you’re not immune from this long-running saga. Provincial and federal governments use your tax dollars for the big stuff, including the SkyTrain Canada Line to Vancouver airport and the South Fraser Perimeter Road, a new truck route to port facilities at Tsawwassen. Clark has promised a bridge replacement for the George Massey tunnel under the Fraser River, which may

or may not be tolled like the Port Mann bridge. The patchwork of Lower Mainland tolls is a growing political liability for the B.C. Liberal government, and if furTom ther tolls are avoided, Fletcher major works elsewhere in the province may be delayed as the budget is eaten up by the big cities. Clark announced the Massey tunnel replacement in a September 2012 speech to the Union of B.C. Municipalities. In the same speech, she also pledged to complete the four-laning of the last 240 km of the Trans-Canada Highway from Kamloops to the Alberta border. That’s one of the most mountainous stretches of highway in Canada, and the province’s cost was

VICTORIA VIEWS

estimated at the time to be $650 million over 10 years. Time will tell if that promise is kept. Transportation Minister Todd Stone inherited the mess left behind by former minister Kevin Falcon, who took transit authority away from Metro Vancouver politicians. He appointed a board of experts and set up a toothless “mayors’ council” to rubber-stamp their decisions, after forcing through the Canada Line ahead of a long-promised transit extension to the east. Local politicians wrangled for years over that eastern extension. They finally settled on surface light rail, only to be overruled by the province, which wanted the vastly more expensive SkyTrain. The latest rebuke to the mayors’ council was when they decided not to proceed with a costly new electronic fare card system. Falcon reversed that

one after taking a junket to London and falling in love with their “Oyster card” subway system. All the glitches from TransLink’s new “Compass card” program will be encountered this summer, just before those mayors go to the polls to face voter wrath. Speaking of reversals, Stone is now demanding the mayors come up F with their list of priorities for new projects. They are expected to believe their choices won’t be overruled again. Stone correctly notes that Vancouver wants SkyTrain on Broadway, Surrey wants new surface light rail, and other Lower Mainland communities want new road and bridge works. Local governments have a long history of parochial squabbling, getting their pet projects done and then suddenly devel-

▼ COUNCIL SUCKERED AGAIN

Tourist info centres are obsolete To the editor: The crux of Stan Martindale’s (Tourism Kelowna chair) position about relocating Kelowna’s tourist information centre is well-hidden. (Queensway Site Eyed to Locate Visitor Centre, Jan. 21 Capital News.) He claims visits are down because the centre on Harvey is in the wrong location. Wrong conclusion. Visits are down because tourist centres are outmoded and obsolete. Anyone with a cell

phone, tablet or computer can, in seconds, get 1,000 times more information than a laborious visit to an info centre. As the author of two printed guidebooks, I know only too well how the Internet diminishes anything in print. It is understandable that tourism staff would love to work in a new 5,000 sq. ft. building overlooking the lake and parks. City hall should not let it happen. Within a

few years the info-seeking visitor base will drop to insignificant. Who would want, for instance, a printed list of local hotels when hundreds of websites give every detail of available accommodations including reviews and availability? Most of those workers who plan to occupy this prime real estate could be working in offices that could be located anywhere. In fact they should work from home. So, Tourism Kelow-

na first floats the idea of new offices in City Park knowing that such absurdity will be blown out of the water. In comparison, its second proposal (surely the intended one) looks good and is embraced. Perhaps in asking for office space the size of two large houses, they are actually thinking about one the size of a cottage. Who knows? The money and effort spent building and relocating would be better spent promoting through

web sites, blogs, Facebook and such. In New York City, I visited the Manhattan visitor centre and found a room full of computers with a few guides offering instructions. In Kelowna a kiosk with computers, catering to the odd visitor without a cell phone, would be the maximum needed to service a few downtown visitors for a couple of years. Jim Couper, Kelowna

▼ NEILYOUNG

Local protest for global environment destruction To the editor: Re: Old Man Take a Look at Your Facts, Jan. 23 Capital News. Tom Fletcher appears to be fighting a battle that is fundamentally based on expectations of ‘proof’ concerning evidence that human activity is affecting our environment. There is a great deal of evidence available regarding the environmental dangers of resource extraction, transportation and refinement. You don’t have to look far—it’s in the

news almost every day. The stories come from wherever the industry is active and wherever people are living. This is not a political issue. It doesn’t matter whether the activities are sanctioned by a Conservative, Liberal or NDP politician. It is simply the obvious truth that extracting and consuming any fossil fuels anywhere on the globe comes at a cost in terms of water quality, ecological transformation/destruction and the viability of human life on the planet.

This is a much larger concern than one pipeline or one active tar sands industry but we have to start somewhere. Neil Young is drawing attention to something in our own back yard. He’s using his privilege as a public figure to stimulate discussion about something of crucial importance. We all drive cars. That doesn’t mean we can’t express concerns about where we are going.

Liberal minister gives B.C. gov’t pat on the back To the editor: Red tape costs businesses time and money. We [B.C. Liberal government] want entrepreneurs to be able to focus on what matters— creating jobs and spurring innovation. That’s why the B.C. government is committing to cutting red tape to make it easier for businesses to do business in B.C. We’re the first government in Canada to enshrine in law the requirement to publish annual reports about regulatory reform. We’ve reduced regulatory requirements by over 42 per cent since 2001. That’s more than 154,000 regulatory requirements off the books—and we’ve committed to holding the line right through to 2015.

Our hard work is being acknowledged. On Jan. 28, as part of Red Tape Awareness Week, CFIB awarded B.C. an ‘A’ for reducing red tape for the third year in a row. As the only province in the country to receive an ‘A’ grade, we know we are national leaders. We were also nominated for a national Golden Scissors Award by CFIB for our work on the Mobile Business Licence program, which allows business to operate across multiple municipalities with a single licence, rather than needing one in each community. But we’re not going to sit back and let red tape pile up. This week we announced five new priority projects to further reduce red tape in British Columbia. These projects include

everything from making it easier for entrepreneurs to find out how to start a new restaurant, to simplifying the way to apply for government contracts. You can visit our Regulatory Reform page through gov.bc.ca for more information on the five projects. Over the next year I commit to not giving up the fight against the red tape. We’ll work hard to ensure we continue to be national leaders in red tape reduction and build on our efforts to be the most small business friendly jurisdiction in the country. Naomi Yamamoto, B.C. Minister of State for Small Business

Kelowna city council still doesn’t get it Tourist Info from A8 not add anything to the scenery. Also, a two-storey building would cer-

▼ B.C. ROADS

Tolls a political hot potato Fletcher from A8 oping the urge to rein in spending once it’s time to dig deep for their neighbours. Lower Mainland taxpayers are weary and confused by all this reorganizing and in-fighting. Many likely believe that it is their regional government that has imposed the Port Mann bridge

tolls, when in fact that is a provincial highway project over which they had no say. Clark has made it clear there is no going back from a November referendum on new regional transportation financing tools, a promise explicit in the B.C. Liberal election platform. She hopes it will increase the dismal voter turnout for

local votes. If it does that, it may be worth it. Right now, civic elections are dismal affairs, with voter turnout and awareness of local issues drifting from bad to worse. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc Email: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Navigate yourself into a new career with ECF!

It is easy to fall into a trap that has you thinking that the sole point of work is to make enough money to live comfortably. Making money is important in your career planning but it is definitely not the only component. If you are unhappy with what you are doing every day, feeling unsatisfied will

leave you feeling frustrated and unable to enjoy going into to work. Wouldn’t you rather have a job that you are passionate about and excited to head to on a daily basis? Whether

you are looking to enter the work force for the first time or considering a career change, the first step is to uncover activities that bring excitement and joy to your day.

Discovering the possibilities One of the first steps in considering a career change is to think carefully about what really drives you. It is important to first discover your interests and passions. You will be amazed at how the doors open to new career that you may not have considered previously. Once you have

determined this foundation, you can start to the search and find the right career. At our ECF events, you will be surprised at how you can fit your passions into a certain industry and love what you choose to do! It may seem daunting to think about a move into a new career. You may find that with the right planning and assessment of your skills, a new career is possible at any stage of life. To get you started on your path: Look back at what you enjoyed as a child and remember your hobbies and interests. Try to recall

1

what you had chosen when asked “what do you want to be when you grow up?” It is not surprising to find that this is what you are passionate about. Even though the goals may change, it’s a great place to start! What are your true values? What do you value in life? Is it travel? Being your own boss? These values tend to be ingrained in your personality and will often lead you in the right direction when choosing your career. Exploring your options and being open to new possibilities. Research on the

internet or in the library are a good start. Attending events such as ECF bring these to light. Often we hear that from our attendees and see the surprise and excitement when new opportunities are presented. Listen to your heart. You will know when you’ve come up on a career opportunity that truly inspires you. It is crucial to the process and takes you one step closer to your dream job! Get professional help. Career advisors are a great place to start and will assist with narrowing down your choices. As-

sessing transferrable skills which you already have, pave a path to new career options. If you are unsure of which career to work towards, try to keep the options open. Gaining experience in different fields or choosing a course of study will leave your options open to different career paths. ECF is at the Delta Grand Hotel & Resort on Monday, February 3rd from 9 am – 3 pm. We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Rockets look for bounce back weekend Warren Henderson

Ok Rockets back home

Prospera Place

STAFF REPORTER

On the way to compiling the Western Hockey League’s best record, there haven’t been many occasions this season where Ryan Huska has had cause to be overly critical of his team. But after suffering back-to-back losses this week for the first time since October, the Kelowna head coach made it clear the Rockets simply aren’t meeting expectations. “We haven’t been happy at all with our last few efforts,” Huska said. “We need to change that now. It’s a critical time of year where we need to be playing well and playing a style that’s going to get us ready going into the playoffs.” The Rockets will look

7 p.m. Feb. 1 to get back on track this weekend when they play a two-game set against the last-place Kamloops Blazers. The teams face off Friday in Kamloops, then again Saturday at Prospera Place. After losing Sunday on the road against Seattle, the Rockets returned home Wednesday to host the Spokane Chiefs. With a 5-2 lead after 40 minutes, the Rockets looked to be cruising to their league-leading 41st win of the season. But a third-period collapse saw

WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

GOALTENDER Jordon Cooke and defenceman Damon Severson will look to bounce back this weekend after dropping a 6-5 home-ice decision to the Spokane Chiefs on Wednesday. Spokane score three times in regulation, then again in the shootout to post a 6-5 win. It was the fashion in which his club lost that most dismayed Huska. “We had a pretty solid lead going to the third and just let it get away,” he said. “Our decision-making wasn’t good, we overcomplicated things, were really back on our

heels and just didn’t deal with the situation very well.” Still, with 22 games remaining and a 10-point lead for top spot in the Western Conference, there are no panic buttons being pushed in the Rockets’ dressing room. Having said that, Huska wants his club to get back to business this

weekend against the Blazers. “This is an opportunity for us to rebound,” he said. “You’re not going to have your best games all the time, and when that happens good teams find a way to rebound quickly. That’s what we need to do.” Saturday’s game against the Blazers opens a five-game home stand

for the Rockets, who will host Red Deer Wednesday, Edmonton next Friday and Victoria Saturday. Meanwhile, the Rockets (40-7-0-3) topped the Canadian Hockey League rankings for the fifth week in a row. The OHL’s Guelph Storm remain No. 2, while the Erie Otters are third.

▼ BCHL

Warriors will try to cap off unbeaten January If February unfolds anything like January did, expect the West Kelowna Warriors to seriously contend for the B.C. Hockey League’s Interior Division title. The Warriors, who are unbeaten in their last 12 games (10-0-2) will visit the Merritt Centennials Friday, before returning home to host the Vernon

Vipers on Saturday. Face off at Royal LePage Place is 7 p.m. The Warriors (28-12-3-2) who were once 11 points off the pace just over a month ago, now trail the Penticton Vees by just three points for

top spot the Interior Division. West Kelowna also has a game in hand. Vernon is six points back of the Warriors. The Warriors have 13 games remaining in the regular season, including one against Penticton

and three against the third-place Vipers.

CHIEFS HOME FRIDAY…

The Kelowna Chiefs look to maintain their hold on top spot in the KIJHL’s Okanagan Division as they play a pair of home games this weekend. The Osoyoos Coyotes will visit Kelowna Friday, while the 100

Mile House Wranglers stop at Rutland Arena Saturday. Face off both nights is 7 p.m. The Chiefs (27-13-0-3) hold a three point lead on Summerland for first place. Both teams have nine games remaining in the regular season. Kelowna will wrap up a four-game home stand Tuesday when they host the Princeton Posse.

Richmond good to Kelowna Judo A strong team of 10 Kelowna judoka went down to the Olympic Oval in Richmond last weekend for the Vancouver International Judo Championships. Led by coaches Kathy Hubble and Stu Leatherdale, seven kids and three adults hauled in medals. First up was Joe Krause, only with Kelowna Judo for six months but nabbing a gold medal in the boys 8-and-under 44kg division, while his team mate Jake Black did the same in the 10 and under division. Also scoring some hardware was the brothers team of Cole and Payton Koop, and Ben Leatherdale, each bringing home a bronze medal for their respective categories. In the teen divisions, 13-year-old Maddie Artiss competed hard, fighting a few very tough fights and earning a very respectable fourth in her division

while 16-year-old Bailey Leatherdale, also matched up with some extremely challenging bouts, managed fifth. Maddie is also representing Zone 2 (Okanagan) in the upcoming B.C. Winter Games, along with team-mate Sophie deKergommeaux.   Meanwhile coach Kathy Hubble had a few exhibition matches where she demonstrated some nice judo and the two adult students, Chris Nan and Blaire Joseph captured gold medals in their divisions. “I was so very impressed with our team as far as team spirit and sportsmanship goes,” said Hubble,  “and even though we didn’t get all first places, it was so nice to see the older jukoka helping with the younger ones and cheering them on. There is such a great camaraderie between all players, not just amongst the team members but

BRADLEY NEAL, of the Big White Racers, won gold in the boys U10 division at the South Okanagan Nancy Greene Zone Race last weekend at Big White.

Great day for young racers The Big White Racers hosted the South Okanagan Nancy Greene zone race Sunday, Jan. 26 under brilliant sunny skies and balmy temperatures. The spring-like day was the perfect setting for racers as young as 4 years old who participated in a ‘best run’ race on a classic Nancy Greene slalom course. Participants were easily recognized by their huge smiles and proud stature after completing for some their first alpine ski race. Apex Ski Club, Crystal Mountain and Big White Racers participated in the event. First timer Liv Willoughby (U8) of

the Big White Racers displayed natural talent winning gold in her division by more than two seconds while teammates Max Wright (gold), Patrick Farcau (silver) and Tag Johnson (bronze) swept the podium in the U8 boys division. Zoe Torres (U10) continued the Torres family tradition of ski excellence and led her teammates winning gold, silver medal Piper Guidi and the bronze medal went to Paige Keeley all of Big White Racers.

Local kids encouraged to try their national sport Starting on Feb. 5, kids aged 6 to 9 will have a chance to try Canada’s national summer sport, lacrosse, for six weeks. “Lacrosse is Canada’s original national sport,” says Dan Wray, Okanagan regional coach for BC Lacrosse. “It teach-

es kids how to run, pass, catch and throw. It’s great for hand-eye coordination.” Both boys and girls are invited to try lacrosse. “We’re excited to partner with lacrosse to offer a learn-to-play program,” says Jon Przybyl of Pa-

cificSport Okanagan, “by sharing our expertise in long term athlete development and movement skills; we want kids to have a really positive introduction to the sport.” The sessions will include 30 minutes of skill development. This in-

cludes general movement skills like agility and balance, plus sport-specific skills like throwing a ball and catching using the lacrosse stick. Participants will then play 3 vs 3 games to encourage lots of chances to play the ball and be part of

the game. The Learn to Play lacrosse program is focused on learning, games and fun. “Our goal is that kids spend the full 60 minutes having fun. We’ll be using a lot of game-based lessons to help teach kids the skills. We definitely want

kids of all skill and fitness-levels to join in.” The learn-to-play sessions are 60 minutes in length with a program for 6 and 7 year olds (5 to 6 p.m.) and 8 and 9 year olds (6 to 7 p.m.). All sessions are held at Rut-

land Elementary School. Equipment is provided. The cost of the program is $30. Visit www. kelowna.ca/recreation to register or contact Jon Przybyl at 250-469-8864 or jprzybyl@pacificsport. com.

Ireland on podium at Nor Am race

Ned Ireland’s busy winter on the Nor Am ski cross circuit continues this weekend with an event in Copper Mountain, Colorado, followed by trips to the Eastern U.S. and Canada. Ireland, 19, is currently is third overall in the season standings, and second among Canadian racers. The former Big White D Racer is coming off a podium finish last weekend at a Nor Am Cup race last weekend at Panorama near Invermere. Ireland took third spot in the event behind American Robert Mahre and

Ontario’s Kevin MacDonald. The Nor Am tour is the springboard to the World Cup circuit where Kelowna’s Kelsey Serwa and Ian Deans currently compete. Ireland fore ran the World Cup in early December at Nakiska after earning an invite to the race, as he was just short in qualifying points. He also came second in the pro division at the Western Open Ski Cross series race at Big White. Ireland is a student at UBC Okanagan enrolled in the human kinetics program.

The final six kilometers of the course take runners along Okanagan Lake to the finish at Waterfront Park for the post-race Wine & Music Festival. “With the tremendous support of our partners at Tourism Kelowna and the City of Kelowna, last year’s inaugural Kelowna race was very well received and out-of-town participants also enjoyed many of Kelowna’s tourism offerings,” said Matt Dockstader, CEO of Destination Races. “Kelowna’s East Bench, Mission Creek Greenway and the lakefront route, plus the beautiful finish and festival at Waterfront Park, are what make this course so special.” In addition to the joy of running in one of Canada’s most scenic destinations and sipping on fine Okanagan wines, all half marathon and relay finishers (19+) also receive a

reports that confidence is not particularly correlated with competence. The probability of the most confident person in the room also being the most competent is only 15 per cent better than chance. He also claims confidence doesn’t really serve those who have it—humble but competent people are more successful and better liked than the over-confident. To be sure, no one really likes a know-it-all. So should we all stop trying to instill confidence in our kids? As in most things, perhaps moderation is key. We are likely to be happier and more secure with a certain degree of self-confidence. Sometimes we also need to be able to show assertiveness. Like it or not, our culture does seem to place value on confidence. I would agree that this basic confidence and ability to be assertive when necessary is different from simply being the loudest in the room or the braggart who always seems to know better than everyone else. I think we would be well advised to quietly gain competence and knowledge in the areas we want to influence. In the end we will certainly come out looking better if we are accurate.

why they might prefer certain answers, confidence had less influence and accuracy fared better. This study was meant to mimic the Paul situation many of us Latimer face in work or volunteer meetings. One or two people can often dominate the agenda if they simply appear to know what they’re talking about. It also makes me think of the many people who get taken in by charlatans making bold but unsubstantiated claims—often health or beauty related. This study’s author calls confidence a “messy proxy” for expertise. Conscious consideration or re-framing meetings into fact-finding or brainstorming sessions can help to work around the effect of confidence in determining solutions. In meetings we can keep a running list of conclusions or ideas or use other methods to switch focus from who is convincing to what is actually being said.

ur society is run largely on the cult of confi-dence. Whoever is the most certain, the most out-spoken, the most insistent tends to win the day in most arenas. Maybe this comes from our U.S. neighbours to the south as their media certainly saturates Canadian airwaves, or maybe it’s simple human nature, but confidence is one character trait that often brings advantage to those who have it. You might be surprised to hear that at least one study has found individuals who are competent but less confident make better and more likable leaders. A new study out of the University of Utah looked at this question and attempted to separate confidence from actual knowledge in a small group setting. Groups were asked to answer factual questions. In the group setting, those who responded most confidently were also the most influential regardless of their accuracy. Interestingly, when the groups were first asked to consider reasons why certain people might really know the answers or

Elise Clark: A genuine advocate for her community N HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge Elise Clark gave her heart and soul to this town —and I thank her for it. When I dig into the memory bank it feels like

I knew Elise all my life. In reality, it was only most of my life. Few long-time residents of our town are not familiar with the diminutive lady who, despite her stature, never stepped aside from a challenge. With Elise Clark you pretty much knew where you stood, what she thought, and how to change the situation if

it needed changing. If you were unsure—Elise would tell you. I first met her when she was good friends with my father, another person of strong conviction and no slouch when it came to standing up for what was right. Even back then, both of them were heavily involved in the community. My dad was on city council in Kelowna from 1970 to ’73 and, ironically, Elise was elected to council soon after dad was forced to leave due to health conditions. She was first elected to council in 1974 and served there until 1993. While Elise and my dad did not always see eye to eye, they had no problem looking each other in the eye and then agree to disagree in a respectful and productive way. They shared a tremendous respect for each other and it showed in the work they accomplished together and individually

for Kelowna. Elise was around our home a lot when I was a teenager. We were also in contact often when I was working in newspapers and on environmental issues. She always took the time to listen to my thoughts or concerns. During the past six years we kept in touch a fair bit, especially when I sat on city council. (I believe dad and I are the only father/son councillors in Kelowna’s history). She would then bend my ear on many issues and I remember thinking how time can often reverse roles in people’s lives. I have several fond memories of the chats we had, and her insistence that I remain true to my beliefs and not “knuckle under” to pressure. It is safe to say that very few people ever had the impact on Kelowna Elise Clark did. A chronology of some of her life, provided by

family members, provides testimony to that comment.

Issues with raising boys

▼ FOR NEW STUDENTS

Online class registration initiated The Central Okanagan School District is one of the first in B.C. to move to an on-line process for managing the registrations of students entering kindergarten, new students to the district, and others wishing to select a new ‘school-of-choice’. According to the Central Okanagan School District superintendent, Hugh Gloster, this action has been taken by the Board of Education at the recommendation of staff. According to Gloster, “Each year we were seeing multiple situations where parents were camping overnight in an attempt to guarantee they could secure a space for their child in one of the district’s oversubscribed schools.” Staff received feedback from the community that a more “civilized” approach was needed to manage this process, and most of the recommendations suggested an on-line system. In response, school district staff developed an online application for registration that will appear very similar to other online processes used for securing tickets to activities such as concerts and sporting events. This new online application will go live on Monday, Feb. 3, starting at 8 a.m. and will remain open until Friday, March 7, 4 p.m. For the benefit of parents, the following outlines the process for applying online. Gloster says please

note that parents of existing students in the school district are not required to complete the online application process—this is exclusively for new students or for those wishing to move to schools outside their normal catchment area.

ENTERTAINMENT Damian Moppett Multi-media artist Damian Moppett will be the guest lecturer at UBC Okanagan on Thursday, Feb. 6, at a free public event. His talk starts at noon in Room CCS222 of the Creative and Critical Studies Building, 1148 Research Rd., on the Kelowna campus. Through fascinating transformational processes involving photography, sculpture, drawing, video and painting, Moppett examines notions of origin, authorship and value. His work often finds its origin in modern art history, and often reflects the smaller and humbler events of life in the studio.

HOUSE CONCERT

Parker, born in Burnaby to a musical family, has been playing piano since he was a toddler, having earned bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School. While at Juilliard, the Canada Council for the Arts awarded him the Sylva Gelber Career Grant, which is given annually to the most talented Canadian artist. The engaging musician will be in Kelowna the first week of February for two performances. His first event, Fantasies of High (-tech) Culture and…the Piano, takes place Monday, Feb. 3, at the Rotary Centre for the Arts’ Mary Irwin Theatre. At this event, Parker will perform Beethoven’s Sonata quasi una Fantasia op.27 no.1, Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, Ravel’s Ondine and his own transcription for the piano of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Tickets for the Monday show are $17.50 each and available through the Rotary Centre box office.

Entertainment IN THE LOOP On Tuesday, Feb. 4, 12:30 p.m., Parker will present a free concert at the UBC Okanagan campus University Centre ballroom. Both performances include an interactive period where he will answer questions. At the UBC event, professors David Boutillier and Manuela Ungureanu along with their students will facilitate the questions. The public is encouraged to email questions concerning Parker’s selected repertoire ahead of time and he will answer as many as time permits.

ALTERNATOR GALLERY

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art’s window gallery will feature local artist Jolene Mackie and her stylistic work, entitled Duende. Mackie’s large-scale wall drawing has an extraordinary presence, depicting tempests of ocean, wind, and seafaring vessel. The artist’s imagery appears on both the wall and the containing glass, giving the illustration even more dimension. The drawing installation is inspired by the humbling qualities of what Mackie likes to think of as the vast unknowns—the sea and the sky. In creating a temporary installation in this window space, Mackie is exploring connections between our selves, our world, and our universe— at this very moment. Duende is a Hispanic word meaning passion, inspiration, and spirit, which are values that the artist holds as fundamental. The exhibit space you demand. will be up from now until March 15.

The money raised will help fund ongoing educational and children’s programming at the art gallery such as the 2014 school tour program, Family Sundays, Art Adventures camps, art programs for the vision impaired, and CONNECT— an art program for adults with developmental disabilities.

At the play’s centre are Doug Brown as the dashing investigator Richard Hanna and Michelle Hussey as the beautiful, albeit mysterious leading lady. Brandon Shalansky and Jordan Davies take on the roles of the clowns, comedic foils who together play more than 130 outrageous characters. Director Randy Leslie says, “It’s sort of the fun of Noises Off and Spamalot combined with an homage to the film noir that Alfred Hitchcock made famous. “The challenge of all the roles and all the locations and the necessity of the precise comic timing that farces require intrigue and excite me artistically…plus it is going to be a laugh riot” The play will run from Feb. 5 to 22, with tickets available at the Kelowna Actors Studio, 1379 Ellis St. Call 250-862-2867.

Perspectives on Surrealism drawn from the VAG collection

Y

ears ago, in the early days of this millennium, an artist friend posed the question to me of which art movement of the 20th century did I think would be seen as having been the most influential.

I proposed Cubism (developed by Pablo Picasso and George Braque in Paris in 1908). Cubist paintings, collage and sculpture prompted other artists to consider including multiple points of view within a single work (farewell to mathematical perspective) and also introduced the notion of duration to visual art. Its faceted, geometric vocabulary spread like wildfire throughout the western world. My friend disagreed, however, and said that it was Surrealism that had truly allowed artists to free their minds, with the notion of plumbing one’s creative unconscious, tapping into archetypes— those symbols of the collective unconscious— and the move to working automatically, that is, with no preconceived notion of what one’s composition was going to represent or look like. The artists of the Surrealist movement (which occurred in several European centres, beginning in the 1920s) also stepped boldly into abstraction in some cases, an area from which the Cubists had hung back. I saw his point, and it seems others would agree with him—witness the touring exhibition from the Vancouver Art Gal-

(with watercolours by Jock Macdonald and J-P Riopelle, executed in the automatic method), through the 1980s, with a terrific collage work by the late Robert Rauschenberg, for example, to works on paper from 2003 by the NewYork-based Marcel Dzama (formerly based in Winnipeg and a member of the former collective there called the Royal Art Lodge, who met every Friday evening to draw together). While fascinating, the vast majority of the pieces in Unreal are puzzling and enigmatic—they do not yield up a quick and straightforward reading to the viewer, and some may remain intelligible only to their creators, as their imagery is so personally fanciful, perhaps drawn from the artists’ own dreams. Unreal is organized and circulated by the Vancouver Art Gallery with

the generous support of the Killy Foundation. It was curated by Daina Augaitis, chief curator/associate director of the Van-

couver Art Gallery. Unreal is on at the Kelowna Art Gallery, 1315 Water St., until March 9.

ELIZABETH ZVONAR, Channelling, 2009, digital lightjet print of a handcut collage, 90.8 x 75.2 cm lery, Unreal, that features 39 works of art from their permanent collection that all embody or stem from Surrealist thought. Circulated through a program called Across the Province (launched in 2006) this show opened earlier this month at the Kelowna Art Gallery. To visit Unreal is to experience first-hand the ongoing heritage and lineage of Surrealism. The show is divided into themes: The Unconscious, The Haunted, The Absurd, and the Dis-Assembled. As one might surmise, the mood

and tone of the works varies greatly from theme to theme. All the pieces in the show are strange and unusual takes on reality, although some are actually painstakingly naturalistic. Several of the artists included are well-known international figures who have never before had work exhibited in Kelowna. Two examples of these are the late Irishborn Francis Bacon, and the contemporary American photo-based artist, Cindy Sherman. Works range in date from the mid 1940s

Springsteen uncovered BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN; HIGH HOPES (COLUMBIA) Springsteen is famous for being a workhorse. During his lengthy twoyear legal struggle to put an end to a poorly drafted

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell contract, he recorded the equivalent of four albums worth of material (postBorn To Run), which proved beneficial for the likes of The Pointer Sisters (Fire) and Patti Smith (Because The Night) who scored big hits with unreleased Springsteen covers. Springsteen was also noted for recording way more songs than were needed for his other studio albums. So this new disc, High Hopes, runs in the vein of the four-CD box set Tracks and The Promise in that it ties up loose ends of hitherto unreleased Boss material but with a slight difference. This time out Springsteen recorded the 12 tracks of High Hopes to be released together as an album rather than a collection. He also heavily collaborates with Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello as a fill-in for Stevie Van Zant and the departed Clarence

Clemmons. Morello adds his production nuances of cinematic sonics and FX to the mix while reportedly encouraging Springsteen to record a few covers such as Suicide’s Dream Baby Dream and the title track from the pen of lesser known writer Tim Scott McConnell. The best cover here is a solid take of Just Like Fire Would from Australia’s legendary punk band The Saints while he interpolates ideas from Joe Grushecky (of the like-minded Jersey, blue collar rock band Iron City Rockers) on The Wall— about a Vietnam War Memorial visit. High Hopes comes off as an oxymoronic mixed bag with cohesion and makes for a solid, even great album but not another Springsteen classic per se. Fave tracks include the politically incendiary American Skin 41 Shots (on Trayvon Martin and other victims of “stand your ground” U.S. legislation) and the bereft song Down In The Hole that sounds sorta I’m-onFire like. A solid release that fans of Broooooose will love. The best thing, however, is this comes with a bonus DVD of the Born In The USA album recorded in proper sequence at a London outdoor venue in solid daylight. It is simply galvanizing. B

This latest Streisand album is a concert recording that chronicles her first ever live gig in her hometown 40+ years since Streisand left as a teen to chase her career. That career has, of course, proven to be wildly successful and this concert CD is a celebration of that as much as it is a homecoming. This is a maxed-out single CD with 24 tracks where Babs rips through many of her well known hits where this album is also divided into three segments. There is a fine tribute to her collaborator Marvin Hamlish (who died only a couple of months before this gig). Streisand also pays tribute to local Brooklyn writers Alan and Marilyn Bergman who provided her with many tunes, and in the final segment features the fine sax of Chris Botti on a handful of songs. As expected Streisand dips heavily into the American songbook and from the sounds of it, a good time was had by all. My only criticism is that Babs is a tad too chatty even breaking into chatter during songs but then again she had not performed in front of her home audience in decades. C+ mooseman19@telus.net

REAL ESTATE

House hunting for the perfect home

Options to cover I a down payment For most first-time home buyers, the most challenging aspect of buying a house is the down payment. The two down payment mortgage options are a conventional mortgage, which requires at least a 20 per cent down payment, and a high ratio mortgage with the absence of a 20 per cent down payment requires mortgage default insurance. While sometimes confused with creditor mortgage life insurance, which provides insurance protection for a mortgage holder in the case of their death, mortgage default insurance is an insurance which guarantees the mortgage by protecting the lender should the homeowner be unable to continue their payments for some unforeseen reason. The insurance also provides the lender (your bank) with the flexibility to offer you the same competitive rates available to home buyers with a larger down payment. The mortgage premiums range from 1.75 to 2.75 per cent of the mortgage amount based on down payment. These mortgage premiums are paid once and are added to the principal balance of the mortgage. As an example if you are purchasing a home for $400,000 with a five per cent down payment your mortgage amount would be $380,000 after down payment. The 2.75 per insurance premium would be $10,450 would be added to your mortgage amount. In the same instance if you were to put 15 per cent down, the premium would be reduced to $7,000. If you were to refinance your mortgage at any point, provided the mortgage with the refinance is still high ratio, you are only required to pay a top up insurance premium on the amount you are increasing. It is to their benefit to try and work with homeowners and offer solutions when a financial hardship occurs rather than start a foreclosure proceeding.

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

t’s easy to get caught up in the daily routine of life by allowing yourself to be consumed with the trivial moments or simply be obsessed with the fine details when searching for that perfect home. I have been talking with my sister, who lives in Texas, about her search to find a new home for her growing family. Her search criteria are three bedrooms, open concept, family room for my two beautiful nephews to play in and an office for her husband. But while those are

Ceiwen Morgan pretty basic house hunting standards, her search goes a little deeper, like her heart and family values. My sister is a stay-athome mom, so her fulltime job is maintaining the household and raising her two little boys. With her husband busy with business meet-

ings and trips, my sister is left to entertain the children a fair bit of the time. So while that is reflected in her house hunting criteria, she has, however, added onto her list a pool. She wants to be able to entertain and exercise her boys through playing in a pool along with teaching them how to swim—she doesn’t simply want to put her children in front of the TV but rather have them interacting with one another and learning to grow and play together. She and her husband

have made several trips from Houston to Dallas in search of this perfect home and they almost found it—open concept, family room off of the kitchen so that she can entertain and watch her boys play, home office and the property even has a pool, However, as tempting as this property was, it was not the home for them. The school my nephew Travis would be attending has received below average ratings, so they decided against it. Her search is continuing but we all should learn

from her experience. It’s the everyday stuff that matters—loving one another, growing and spending time together. Put the superficial items aside and don’t overlook the simple things. I’m envious of my sister and her beautiful growing family. I can only hope that one day when I start a family I can apply the same love and diligence into my household as she does to hers.

One bad Durango in a good way

The 2014 Dodge Durango test truck was the perfect Christmas treat. This is the perfect kind of vehicle to have when you need to cart around extra kids and family from events like skating parties to Christmas dinners to anything else that needs getting done over the festive season. With three rows of seats and seating for six or seven passengers, the Durango is a large comfortable vehicle for any large family or a family of four that needs to take extra people to soccer or hockey practice. The Durango tester was the top of line Citadel model with a beautiful two-tine interior, large polished wheels and classy looking grille. It was not fitted with winter tires but we had no skiing plans, plus all Durango models come with AWD as standard equipment.

Looks I can’t remember the last time a large SUV turned heads but this model had passersby, friends, and family all taking notice. Several neighbours commented on the stylish “racetrack” rear light bar that has migrated from the Dodge Dart and Charger sedans to this big SUV for 2014. Because of standard AWD and other packaging changes, the starting price is higher than direct competitors, the Ford Explorer or Nissan Pathfinder. Both those vehicles have a base model that starts around $30,000, the Durango, in contrast, starts at $39,995 and tops out at $51,995. This Citadel model, with options, is over $60,000. The base model comes nicely equipped with 18-inch wheels, keyless entry and

Bluetooth streaming to name a few. Dodge believes the $43,995 Limited model will be the volume seller thanks to a backup camera with sensors, heated seats over the first two rows and a higher level of interior trim.

Drive The big update for 2014 is the introduction of an I can’t remember 8-speed automatic transmission to help limit the Inside the last time a large amount of fuel this big Updates to the interior SUV turned heads rig uses.

Handling point for the Durango is the amount of space it offers over three rows for 6 or 7 passengers. My youngest son loved climbing into the third row and could actually stretch out. I even tried it out and can report that adults have plenty of room in any seat. The Citadel model came equipped with a stunning two-tone interior featuring black carpets and tan seats. This contrast won over my wife who wouldn’t have looked twice at a Durango but after the first week she admitted how much she enjoyed the experience. If you

Verdict This latest Durango is yet another example of what Chrysler is doing right. It is loaded with the latest technology, has a class leading 8-speed automatic, attitude and room to spare. I enjoyed my entire time with it and so did the rest of the family, we even gave it a name, “The Badongo” I don’t know why, but it really is one Bad Durango. If I can read the tea leaves for a moment, I would bet the EcoDiesel will be coming to the Durango, hopefully sooner rather then better.

Predictions of Hybrid extinction are premature Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently equated hybrid vehicles to early amphibians that hopped out of the oceans, learned to survive on land and eventually disappeared. Ironically, if the electric vehicle (EV) evolved in a similar way, Tesla (an exclusively EV company) wouldn’t exist right now and this would probably be in a vibrant Hybrid Age! Despite the early birth of production EV, hybrid (HEV) and now plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV)

sales continue to rise, new models continue to arrive and at least three all-new PHEVs are expected later this year. A HEV functions just like, or similar to, a conventional gas-engine vehicle, from a driver/owner perspective. It consumes substantially less fuel, especially in an urban environment, and a regenerative braking system can greatly extend the life of brake friction pads. A PHEV increases the energy saving, money saving, and greenhouse gas reduc-

the drive system, the terrain and weather conditions and how the PHEV is driven. Lugging around a bigger battery obviously increases the weight of a PHEV and it takes up either passenger cabin or more likely trunk cargo space. The latest lithium-ion battery packs are lighter and more compact, but the space sacrifice is something that a prospective owner must be willing to live with. Hybrid owner feedback is generally very positive and the fuel savings can be

this energy to go further on electrical power alone. How far depends primarily on the capacity (size) of its storage battery, but also on

ing advantages by tapping into an electrical source and pulling relatively inexpensive electrical power off the main grid. It then uses

Hybrid vehicles have never been more affordable and certainly well worth consideration, if you’re thinking about buying a new vehicle.

substantial. That said, you generally pay a premium for this technology, but that gap is rapidly narrowing. Last year, GM slashed $5,000 off the price of its popular Chevrolet Volt, the best selling PHEV on the

market. While GM marketing promotes the Volt as an “extended range” electric vehicle, as its road wheels are always driven by an electric motor, it’s still classified as a PHEV. A small on-board gas engine generates electricity, when necessary. The new Honda Accord Hybrid (a HEV) further blurs the differences between HEV and PHEV, as it uses the same two-motor powertrain used in the Accord Plug-in Hybrid (a PHEV edition that’s currently only sold in selected markets). At speeds under 80 km/h the road wheels are driven by an electric motor and its

Atkinson cycle gas engine is only used to generate electrical power, when needed. The current list price for an Accord EX-L is $29,455 and the Accord Hybrid starts at $29,590, which is only $135 more. The top-line Accord Touring V6 sells for $35,400 and the Touring edition of Accord Hybrid is $36,690, just an extra $290. The price differential is almost non-existent. Choosing HEV or PHEV boils-down to whether an owner can take full advantage of the plug-in electrical storage feature and normal driving commutes are within the electric-only speed and distance range of the PHEV. A low-speed urban driving commute allowing the PHEV to be charged at home overnight and topped-up again while at work, during the day, would

be an ideal scenario. While the popularity of hybrid vehicles continues to grow, barring a sudden spike in the price of oil/ gasoline, a meteoric rise in the popularity of alternatives to the old reliable gas engine vehicle is unlikely. Then again, who knows what the future, or the next twist in evolution, will bring. Hybrid vehicles have never been more affordable and certainly well worth consideration, if you’re thinking about buying a new vehicle. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc. ca

Drives-U-Crazy Roundabout rebels My peeve is people who “crash” through a roundabout, writes reader John Haygarth. Approaching one, you slow down and look left. If someone is already in, let them continue. Do not “cut” them off as many do here in Penticton. Before reaching your exit, you signal right to let others know they can enter. They are a great way to filter traffic different ways without traffic lights and, if used correctly, can actually speed up your trip. What drives-u-crazy? keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

X5 marks 15 years of luxurious activity It’s hard to believe that the BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) was launched in the last century. It was a pioneer vehicle in 1999, which essentially launched a brand new segment. Fast forward to 2014 and you now have the latest installment of five-passenger people mover. 2014 BMW X5 xDrive 35i—the third generation X5 continues the tradition of modern luxury mixed with a capable xDrive all-wheel drive system, and of course, some of the latest tech gadgets. It also comes with an overhauled look, on the inside and out. Starting with its Mineral White Metallic exterior, BMW continues to build on the X5’s soft-edge features, meaning, designers didn’t ditch the rounded curves for more angular or boxy characteristics. Its physique continues to embody the philosophy of a short front overhang, a long wheelbase, upright A-pillars and a short distance between the front axle and the leading edge of the front door. The broadset kidney grille reaches out and touches the front headlights, making its head-on appearance bold and seamless. To me, I find the overall looks to be understated but not necessarily awe-inspiring. My mind wasn’t blown when I first laid eyes on it. Then again, looks aren’t everything. If functionality is what you’re after, the X5 has plenty of that. Instead of starting in the front row, let’s skip to the back seats. The leather-trimmed cabin offers each occupant a cuddle when sitting inside. Furthermore, legroom in the second row is generous, especially when the front seats aren’t pushed all the way back. There’s even a decent amount of space in the cargo area, which totals 650L. In the driver’s seat, the captain of this luxurious vehicle has the best of all worlds. Within arm’s reach is the iDrive infotainment system, easily readable centre stack and the gearshift lever to the 8-speed automatic transmission with Steptronic. The transmission is then linked to BMW’s award-winning engine. Powering this particular vehicle was the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six cylinder engine. It has an

output of 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Should you desire more ponies, you can always opt for the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 offering more get up and go (445hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.) When you turn on the X5 via the push button start, you also have the option to have more or less pizazz when it comes to driving dynamics. There are four modes in which you can enjoy this SAV including, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Eco Pro. The names are self-explanatory. If you’re romping around town, and don’t want to bridle all the horses, and you want to save on some fuel, Eco Pro is the mode you’d want. But if you’re feeling like you want a little more something something, Sport or Sport+ will do the trick. Aside from changing the feel of the X5 when driving, you’ll experience a ride that is calm and collected, as well as smooth and enjoyable. Steering is done via a rack-and-pinion system, therefore it’s not a chore to get the vehicle moving in a direction that you want. I’d categorize it on the “heavier” side, but because of that, I felt I was better able to interpret what was going on underneath, especially at higher speeds. Another perk of the steering wheel? It’s heated. Other things inside that keep you and the passengers warm is the ability to control four different climate zones. Thanks to the Premium Package ($5,500) one of its features is the Auto 4-Zone Climate Control. This package also adds heated rear seats, a head-up display, manual side sunshades, and a feature that I really like, surround view with top view. Surround view gives you a 270 degree projection of what’s going on around the X5. For a vehicle as large

as it is, it’s a wonderful feature to have. Of course, BMW also loaded this particular test vehicle with the Technology Package ($3,800) that includes active LED headlights, active bind spot detection, lane departure and collision warning and more. And to make life behind the wheel a little more musical, there was an integrated Bang and Olufsen system that will add $4,900 to the base MSRP of $62,900. The price as tested came to $77,950 (excluding the destination charge of $2,095) alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Rough country dream machine Jeep Grand Cherokee 2011 to 2013 The redesigned 2011 Grand Cherokee was still unmistakably a Jeep, even though it came with an all-new chassis and body. It was offered with an impressively wide range of basic hardware choices that included three 4x4 systems, an optional Quadra-Lift air suspension system and two engines. The standard engine is a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 and other than some early production line glitches, (see recalls) it’s a pretty reliable, fuel efficient modern unit. A big improvement on the previous 3.7 V6, the 3.6 V6 features 24-valves and variable valve timing and can produce 290 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. And fuel economy is rated at: 13.0/8.9 L/100 km (city/ highway). That’s considerably better than the optional 5.7-litre V8 hemi engine, which is rated at 15.7 L/100 km in the city and 10.6 L/100 km on the highway. The pulling power (390 lb-ft of torque) of the big V8 engine,

It has been a top performer in both government and independent crash tests.

however, helps to more than double the potential towing capability of the Grand Cherokee, from 1588 kg to 3266 kg. Both engines are mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The Laredo and Laredo X trim levels come with Quadra-Trac I, a full-time 4x4 system that distributes drive 48/52 front-to-rear, but no low-range is provided. Quadra-Trac II was optional on Laredo X and standard on Limited and Overland. This system is capable of sending 100 per cent of drive to either the front or rear axle and has a selectable low range, which

is important for demanding off-road use. Then there’s Quadra-Drive II. This was optional on the Laredo X, Limited and Overland and adds an electronic limited-slip differential that can concentrate up to 100 per cent of drive to a single wheel. It also comes with Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist systems. The optional (Quadra Lift) air suspension can lower or raise (to a maximum of 27 cm) the ride height. It has a Park Mode that drops to its lowest (making it easier for passengers to get in or out) and an Aero Mode that automatically lowers the Grand Cherokee at highway speeds for improved aerodynamics and stability. In addition to being a more rigid platform, the new chassis gave Grand Cherokee a 13 cm longer wheelbase and a new independent rear suspension. High-speed handling and highway ride comfort, particularly for rear seat passengers, was noticeably improved. A new top-line SRT edition of Grand Cherokee, with a

2011 Jeep GC. 6.4-litre V8 hemi engine, was added for the 2012 model year. A six-speed automatic transmission also replaced five-speed automatic with the 5.7-litre V8 and a U-connect hands-free phone feature became a standard on all versions. No significant changes were made for the 2013 model year and the big news for 2014 is the introduction of a diesel engine edition plus a new 8-speed automatic transmission. The iconic Jeep brand’s

2014 Cadillac ELR Green Car Journal has awarded the all-new electrified luxury coupe its 2014 Green Car Technology Award for the Regen on Demand system. The technology allows the driver to use paddle shifters on the steering wheel to temporarily regenerate energy and store it as electricity in the battery pack for later use. “Putting regenerative braking at the driver’s fingertips supports the ELR’s 340-

Pick of the week mile total driving range while also adding a fun-to-drive element to the premium luxury coupe,” said Jim Vurpillat, director of emerging markets at Cadillac. Powering the ELR is a combination of pure electric drive and an efficient, range-extending 1.4L gasoline-powered electric generator. A T-shaped, 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is located along the centerline of the vehicle, between the front and rear wheels to make the most of weight distribution.

Obituaries

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother with family present at her bedside after a brief battle with cancer. Delma has been reunited with her parents Belle & Louie LeBlue and her brother Edward, as well as other relatives and friends who predeceased her. Mom had the true spirit of a fighter and a survivor. She had cancer 38 years ago and had a long remission after her surgeon’s had removed the offending masses. She had said then that if God had wanted her to have it, then the surgeons would not have gotten it all; and she would deal with it. She was a true fighter which was again proved when she became a single parent. She did whatever was necessary to keep the 5 of us kids with a roof over our heads, bills paid, food in our stomachs, even picking fruit to pay for our musical instruments. She was always there for us no matter what was required be it a “Boot in our Butts” figuratively speaking to get us to do something, advice, food, or even a few dollars, or just be there to listen. She was a great cook and cooked amazing cabbage rolls, pataheh, potato soup, borscht, which we all loved. She was someone who loved to have coffee with her friends and family and she especially loved having picnics and having family get togethers with all her grandchildren. She enjoyed being out in nature and enjoyed some quiet moments on Knox Mtn with David at the lookout where the “firestorm” sign is (where some of her words had been immortalized on the sign.) We are all missing her a great deal, be it phone calls, visits especially. We will also miss her stories, her wicked sense of humor. She was an amazing Mom, Grandmother, Aunt, Friend who has not only left a huge void in our hearts, but also a huge amount of treasured memories. We love you and miss you forever Mom. Lovingly remembered by her 5 children Helen(Russ), Daphne, David(Sharon), Sonya, and Erik(Lorna) 9 Grandchildren: Marilyn, Caitie, Eleanor, Faith, Margret, Edward, Nick, Patricia and Marcel. Also survived by her loving sisters Alice Biggs(David), Lorna Siki(John) and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as special friends. Thank you to Daphne, who took the time to come and look after Mom for the past 2 months. Thank you to Howard & Wendy Soon, Ray, Sharon Niblow, Lennie Trykki and her life long friends Kay & Hugh Critchley, for you love and support. Michael Kerr for you friendship and picnics by the lake. She greatly appreciated your visits and phone calls. Thank you to all for the love and support. Special Thank You to all the Dr’s & Nursing staff on wards 4a & 4b for their attentive and gentle care, and especially to the 2 nurses Kristi and Jen who went above and beyond on her last day, making sure Mom was always comfortable and for also taking the time to help out the family when needed. It was greatly appreciated. Cremation has taken place. Memorial and Friendship Service planned for later in the year.

July 27, 1927 – January 27, 2014 Born in Winnipeg, MB, Allan passed away at Kelowna General Hospital at the age of 86 years. He worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway for 21 years and then for the Winnipeg School Division #1. In 1953 Allan married Nancy Helen Clarke and had two children. Allan loved buying and fixing up houses and was always busy with one renovation or another. He always kept moving and doing and loved meeting new people. He could start up a mconversation anywhere he went. In his later years he traveled and developed friendships through playing pool at the Seniors Centre, bowling, the Legion and the United Church. He will be missed by his son Clarke (Mary Lou) and daughter Carolyne, grandchildren; Clarissa, Alec, Scott and Nick Lester and Aaron and Shawn Boyd. Also, by his companion Mary Martens and his cousins; Mavis Kleven and Hesel Lyss. Sadly, he was predeceased by his wife Nancy in 1999, parents Charles and Annabelle, his brothers; Stanley, Harry, Phil and his sister Dorothy Ghostkeeper. A Memorial Service will be held 2:00 P.M. Monday, February 3, 2013 at the Westbank United Church, 3672 Brown Rd., Westbank, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Allan to the Salvation Army. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family by visiting HansonsFuneral.ca

BERUBE, RAYMOND ANTHONY February 28, 1931 ~ January 25, 2014

It is with great sadness and loving memories that the family of Ray Berube (82) announce his passing at Lake Country Lodge, Winfield, on January 25, 2014, after complications from pneumonia and heart failure brought on from his stroke on September 18, 2013. Ray was born in Westmount (Montreal) on February 28, 1931. He is predeceased by his father, Paul (1948) and his mother Helen nee Gates (1981), his brother Gerry and his sister Paula. He is survived by his loving wife of 38 years, Pat, sons Bob (Margaret), Bill, Mike and daughter Lori, grandchildren Mike, Kurt, Taylor and Brooke, and great-grandchildren Indy, Brody, Landen and Sophie, as well as nieces Donna, Lynn, Suzanne, and Brigitte and various in-laws, friends and neighbours. Ray had a life-long love of aviation. There is almost no part of Canada that Ray didn’t have first hand experience with. He lived in almost every province and territory and flew into the rest. He loved the fact that his family came to Canada in the 1600’s, a truly proud Canadian. Ray loved animals. If desired, in lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to an animal shelter of your choice.

OLD Havana’s Plaza de Cathedral is a don’t-miss destination.

Visit to Cuba turns into a long trip back in time Patricia Sheridan CONTRIBUTOR

HAVANA—colourful, crumbling and controversial, Cuba is caught between then and now, between communism and capitalism and the challenge of two currencies. Thanks to a loosening of travel restrictions for Cuban-Americans by President Barack Obama, Cubans are beginning to get a taste of the benefits of free enterprise. All manner of merchandise has begun showing up in the country, including massive flat-screen TVs, bikes, clothes and microwaves.

It was the proverbial dark and stormy night when our charter plane finally touched down after an eight-hour delay in Miami. Once we were through customs, the glass doors slid open to reveal a crowd of people three deep waiting to greet family members pushing carts piled high with goods. “This welcome is all for you,” joked in-country guide Vivian Quintero Triana. She assisted Joe Scarpaci of the Center for the Study of Cuban Culture + Economy as he led the group from the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. If you think cigars, rum and classic cars when you envision Cuba, you won’t be disappointed.

NEW! The O-K Connector

pacificcoastal.com

Even in the dark, cars from the 1950s and ’60s were obvious in the parking lot just beyond the greeters. There are so many still running that it’s like a vintage car show all the time. Weaving among them on the city roads are Soviet-era models, bicycle taxis and, in Old Havana, horses and buggies. Murals and billboards celebrating the 55-year-old revolution and its heroes add a surreal quality to the country, especially in combination with the old vehicles. It’s like a movie is being filmed and you are an extra. The impact of the U.S. trade embargo initiated in 1960 and the loss of Soviet support in the

late 1980s have taken their toll. Buildings that would be declared uninhabitable in the United States are bursting at their disintegrating seams with inhabitants. “The two biggest issues facing Cubans are food and housing,” said Scarpaci. President Raul Castro, brother of Fidel, has introduced some reforms and the people are slowly shaking off the shackles of a 100 percent state-run economy. With state-issued permits, residents are allowed to operate businesses from See Havana A13

IN HAVANA, cruising the Malecon, heading toward the El Morro fortress and lighthouse. Havana from A12 their homes and buy and sell their own houses. You often see people holding homemade signs advertising for buyers or sellers. Another reform is the permission to buy a car. A new Chinese-made car can cost up to $240,000, a ridiculous amount in any country. In Cuba, it would take the average person more than 1,000 years to pay it off, according to Scarpaci’s calculations. Those with beautifully restored relics offer rides around Havana and along the Malecon, the famous road and seawall built by the United States before the revolution. Cubans are paid in pesos by the state, but visitors use CUCs (Cuban convertible pesos), a different currency that trades one to one with the U.S. dollar. Most people hire the cars for an hour, but they can be had for 30 minutes for about 15 CUCs. The bicycle taxis that remind one of rick-

shaws are just a few CUCs. Cubans are generally very friendly and happily interact with visitors. Many speak English, so if you don’t speak Spanish it won’t be a problem. What you need to know is American credit cards and dollars are not accepted. Most people bring cash and change it at the hotel. You end up with about 87 CUCs for $100. As for buying art, the big-ticket items are often paid for by wiring the money once you get home. You take the art with you. It is an honour system. Americans are allowed to bring home jewelry, art and music but nothing state made, which means no cigars or rum. Bring at least $500 if you enjoy bringing home mementos and change it as needed because CUCs are worthless outside of Cuba. The only way for Americans to travel to Cuba legally is with a licensed group. The license is issued by the

U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control. The Carnegie went on a People to People permit in partnership with the Center for the Study of Cuban Culture + Economy, which is based in Virginia. There are performance and religious licenses that grant Americans access to Cuba as well. Beyonce and Jay-Z caused a stir when they celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary by traveling to Cuba. The famous duo used a People to People license and stayed at the Saratoga Hotel, the same as the Carnegie group. Built in the 1930s, it boasts a mezzanine bar, complete with palm trees, that captures all the romance of old Havana. The rooftop bar and pool were just mint on the mojito. Across the Paseo del Prado from the Saratoga is a building that is a replica of the U.S. Capitol. It was the seat of government before the revolution, but after, it was con-

sidered a symbol of corruption and abandoned for a time. Just behind it sits one of 40 tobacco factories that once operated during Havana’s heyday. Havana is sometimes called the City of Columns because of all the colonial colonnades. Because part of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the facades must be preserved. Ernest Hemingway is the rare celebrated American. The Floridita, self-proclaimed cradle of the daiquiri, has a bronze statue of Papa in the corner, leaning on the bar. It’s a photo op most visitors can’t pass up. Live music, smoke and crowds make it a place to pop in, get the picture and move on. The Floridita sits at the beginning of Obispo, a narrow street that leads to the harbour and is filled with tourists and Cubans. While wandering through the souvenir and T-shirt shops where images of the revolutionary Che Guevara hang next to Cuban

being a Mafia hangout, is a must. Most mansions from the glory days of the sugar plantations are still standing. Some are occupied by employees of the owners who fled after the revolution. Others house government officials, and a few are kept up with funds from the families who once lived there. Americans must follow the program outlined by the permit they are traveling under. Visits to the homes of Cubans— some living very well and others scraping by— are included in the program as well as dinners in paladares, which are privately run in-home restaurants. While we were dining at L’Atelier, a wonderful paladar in an old Vedado mansion decorated with the work of contemporary Cuban artists, the lights went out. The staff didn’t miss a beat, quickly lighting the room with candelabras. Power outages are

common in Cuba. So are exceptional artists such as Jose Fuster, a mosaic artist who didn’t stop with his home and tiled his neighbourhood with colourful, whimsical designs. Then there was sculptor Yoan Capote, who talked to the Carnegie travelers about the meaning behind his work, much of which deals with communication and his country’s relationship with the United States. Cuba’s African side influences its music, art, dance and religion, including Santeria, a blend of Catholicism and African spiritual practices. Havana is an enchanting meld of cultures, architecture, people and places, and although the sun will inevitably set on the Castros’ Cuba, what will replace it remains to be seen.
