ow to turn city-owned land on the shore of Okanagan Lake into a park using a plan everyone can get behind? That’s the task facing 33 individuals who will gather in Kelowna next week. The group, representing a myriad of local interests, will participate in an urban planning workshop known as a charrette that the city hopes will finally allow it to move forward with community support. Three years after a city proposal for the property on the South Pandosy lakeshore split the community because of its inclusion of development, city hall is trying again. See story page A3

Solving land use dilemma for Cedar Avenue city properties

Alistair Waters

ASSISTANT EDITOR

I

t was an issue that divided Kelowna three years ago. And now it’s back. When it comes to turning city-owned lakeshore land into a park, how much—if any—development should be allowed to help make that a reality? That’s one of the main issues a group of community representatives will grapple with next week when they sit down to try to design a future for seven properties owned by the city in the South Pandosy area, along Cedar Avenue. In 2011, a controversial city plan called for the sale of as much as half of the 2.3-acre property to help fund creation of a small park, waterfront boardwalk and shoreline area on the land. A developer who owns property nearby wanted to build a four-storey building, a land sale the city saw as a way to raise the money it needed for the park. But residents resisted. Rallies were held. Letters to newspapers were written. And a well-attended and, at times heated, public hearing took place . In the end, the city council of the day dropped the entire idea. But the question of what to do with the land has lingered. When the current city council took office 2 1/2 years ago, it was made clear the issue of the Pandosy waterfront lands would be resolved sooner rather than later. And that meant before the next election, which is scheduled for this Nov-

ember. Fast forward to today and the city is preparing to host an urban planning workshop for the properties in question in a bid to have the community come up with the plan for how South Pandosy can get its next waterfront park. “There are a lot of opinions out there, that’s why we need to go through this collaboration,” says Graham Hood, the City of Kelowna’s strategic land development manager. Next week, during a two-day session known as a charrette, 30 people— some representing neighbourhood and community groups as well as business and development organizations along with four local and four city at-large members selected in a lottery type draw from more than 50 names submitted—will gather to try to come to some consensus about how to proceed. (The city also owns four additional lots south of Cedar Avenue. But while they are part of the bigger picture, they are not included in the specific design exercise.) “We are planning the entire area but we are designing those seven lots,” says Hood. The first day of the charrette will be devoted to looking at how the larger neighbourhood surrounding the seven lakeshore properties should develop, with the second day focusing on the seven lots. The charrette will be led by a professor from Simon Fraser University’s urban planning department who is familiar with Kelowna, having worked on previous charrettes

ations. Currently, the club has temporary storage on part of the property and uses it in the summer months as its base for teaching and providing paddle sports on Okanagan Lake. While the waters in the area are not considered great for swimming, the city sees the use by the paddle club as a good fit. But not everyone thinks the club should be located at that site. Michael Neill, who led the opposition to the city’s plan three years ago, said his group, People For The Park, have identified a few other possible locations for the paddle centre, including at nearby Kinsmen Park. Neill said while he’s not opposed to inclusion of a paddle centre, he thinks it may be better located elsewhere. But overall, Neill said he is happy the city is holding the charrette to design a future for the properties, although he wishes the process had a broader scope. With the addition of the four city-owned prop-

According to Hood, the participants will come up with a recommendation that will go to city staff and be included in a report to council that should be presented by early April. Heading into the charrette, participants know what city wants—at least

in broad terms. In establishing the parameters for the charrette, council has made it clear, any park plan should not have a tax impact. While not mandating the inclusion of some form of development, it left the door open, saying some type of development may be needed.

“That is something the (charrette) participants will have to look at,” says Hood. Council has also said whatever the plan turns out to be, it must include a centre for the Kelowna Paddle Club. Last year, the city agreed to allow the club use of the site for its oper-

While the Pandosy waterfront charrette sessions on Feb 25 and 26 will be closed to the public, there will be opportunities to hear what participants are proposing. In addition to public review sessions following each day’s work, an open house will be held Feb. 27 to discuss the outcome. The two review sessions and the open house will be held at St. Paul’s United Church on Lakeshore Road in South Pandosy, with the review sessions running from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and the open house on Feb 27 running from 5 to 8 p.m. While the public has had an opportunity to give its input prior to the charrette via the city’s website, you can also comment on the work following the charrette. The city says it will collect feedback up to March 7 via its webpage: getinvolved.kel a.ca.

erties south of Cedar Avenue and two road-end lots located at each end of the land in question, the city has a total of 13 lots that he says should all be turned into one large linear park. While opposed to inclusion of a boardwalk because it would curtail the depth of the park, he feels adding a restaurant at one end could be an asset. “We need to have the right amount of depth,” he says. “You can never have too much lakeshore (property open to the public).” Three years ago, when the city wanted to see part of the property developed, the argument to do so was that it would help bring people from the popular South Pandosy commercial area over to the nearby waterfront. City officials have argued that existing parks in the area are not that well used and some form of development could help open up the area. But Neill disputes

NDP leader targets PM’s leadership style Alistair Waters

And when he did, he went on the attack. Most of his remarks— and even many of the answers he gave to questions posed by people in the audience of about 70 people—were shots specifically fired at Prime Minister Stephen Harper rather than Harper’s Conservative government. Playing to the perception that Harper is a controlling one-man show, Mulcair characterized federal government moves as moves made by the prime minister himself. “Stephen Harper is trying to stack the deck and load the dice,” he said of the government’s pro-

Amid the excitement of Canada’s women’s hockey team staging a historic comeback to beat the U.S. in the gold medal game at the Winter Olympics on Thursday, federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair brought his political message to Kelowna. Sensing the competition he faced for his audience’s attention from the game playing on a television set behind him at a local restaurant, Mulcair waited until after Marie-Philip Poulin scored in overtime to give Canada the victory before he started speaking.

posed changes to voting rules recently introduced. When asked about health care in Canada, he said Harper is planning to reduce funding for health care in Canada by $36 billion. He laid Canada Post’s recent decision to stop home delivery of mail directly in Harper’s lap and accused the prime minister of preferring power to actual governing and “decision-making followed by fact-checking,” instead of the other way around. The pro-NDP crowd liked what they heard. They cheered when Mulcair said the changes to voting rules would be the “number one issue” his

Mulcair, who said later he has been impressed by the size of the crowds that have turned out to talk to him during a series of whistle-stop appearances in B.C,’s southern Interior in recent days, told his audience he feels the NDP has a good base of support here in what has traditionally been considered strong Conservative territory.

To the editor: This city council absolutely blows me away. Here they are with articles on the front page of the both local newspapers about a building that should have been built a long time ago. (‘No’ Votes for New Police Station Will Be Tested, Feb. 18 Capital News.) Why did they not do the same (initiate an Alternative Approval Process) when they were spending our money on the new (washroom) they put in City Park for $800,000 where the peeping toms can watch you have a dump? I realize the enormity of the amount for the police station, but council wants the city to grow and yet doesn’t have the vision to go with it. Is there anyone out there with a mind for the future? But our city council and their cronies would probably get rid of any such person in short order. Maggie Flood, Kelowna

Who provoked a school strike?

I

made an error in a column two weeks ago about the latest court ruling in favour of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. I referred to an “illegal” strike in 2012, and was quickly reminded that this teacher walkout was sanctioned by the Labour Relations Board. After months of withholding report cards and refusing to meet with administrators, the union went to the LRB to seek permission for a full-scale strike. They got their wish, with authorization under essential services rules for a three-day strike in the first week, and one day a week after that until the end of the school year or a settlement was reached. For the record, the last “illegal”

BCTF strike was in 2005, in defiance of a B.C. Supreme Court order that resulted in a $500,000 fine against the union. That was the same Tom year BCTF lawyers won Fletcher a split B.C. Court of Appeal ruling allowing teachers to bring political propaganda into classrooms. Two out of three judges decided this was appropriate to preserve their freedom of expression. The authorized three-day strike went ahead in March 2012. Regular readers may recall my reports of students being indoctrinated in classrooms and in some cases sent out as union pickets, and of the strong-arming of unionized government office staff here in Victoria to make them join a rally on

VICTORIA VIEWS

the legislature lawn. This was the strike that, according to the current media and political narrative, the provincial cabinet conspired to bring about. This notion is central to the Jan. 27 ruling of Justice Susan Griffin that orders the B.C. government to attempt to reconstruct the world of 2001. Government lawyers filed an application with the B.C. Court of Appeal on Friday to suspend parts of this ruling. Imposing Griffin’s terms would cause “irreparable harm to the public interest of unprecedented magnitude,” they said in arguments backed up by a series of affidavits from superintendents who have to keep B.C.’s war-weary public schools running. In Surrey, returning to 2002 conditions would add $40 million to the district payroll in year one. That’s one of 60 school districts. The government’s submission in-

cludes affidavits from superintendents around the province on its likely impact. Here’s a partial list: Cancellation of specialty programs for vulnerable youth, construction of portables to meet arbitrary class size restrictions, transfer of some students to other schools, closure of daycare and Strong Start preschool programs to free up space reallocated over the years, layoff of non-teaching staff, and cancellation of school participation in the international student program. Premier Christy Clark and Education Minister Peter Fassbender have begun to push back against the conspiracy theory that has taken hold, pointing out that when the BCTF finally did get permission to strike, the cabinet of the day acted to prevent it.

2015 budget overflowing with bribes To the editor: I’m tired of hearing Stephen Harper’s Conservatives repeat ad nauseam their policies are for the good of all Canadians. Voters should take the time to look past the partisan propaganda and examine the truth. Everything Conservative ministers say and do is for one purpose—to manipulate enough hard-working, law-abiding citizens to re-elect Harper’s authoritarian government. Although I fully support fiscal responsibility, I can not stomach Mr. Harper’s devious dictatorial behaviour which is eroding Can-

ada’s democratic institutions and ideals. The Conservatives’ self-serving overhaul of the Elections Act is a paranoid attack on an agency which exists to prevent deceitful election practises such as campaign over-spending, misleading robo-calls and voter misinformation. Lord help anyone who dares to question the underhanded electoral tactics of Harper’s Conservatives. Minister of Finance Jim Flaherty’s new budget has been cynically crafted to set the stage for the Conservatives’ upcoming 2015 electioneering budget, which will no doubt be

overflowing with generous programs to bribe right-of-center voters. On the bright side, resource extraction companies will be glad to know Mister Flaherty is not waiting around to go after all those environmental terrorists and organized criminals who are allegedly using pro-environment charities to launder their dirty money.

remember correctly what I read from council, each of these 28 cells would cost $200,000 for a grand total of 5.6 million. I remember asking, in a letter, if the walls of each cell would be of solid steel that would not allow even Houdini to break free. I am still waiting for an answer. Can someone tells me a why a cell costs more than an average home, on a piece of title-free land? I am aware it is not the role of council to provide social services. But, if it did, just imagine how many homeless and hungry people we could accommodate for the price of just one cell? Recently, I read about city hall going to the pub-

lic with a web site, For the Record, because it has the perception, perhaps paranoia, of being negatively portrayed by the press and the public at large. In my almost 40 years as a resident of Kelowna, I have never seen such an act of desperation by any previous council. The mayor wants to show accountability. Well, Your Worship, why I am still waiting for an answer of how much the city spends on consultants to tell staff what to do? Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, I have yet to see the expenditure mentioned in the budget, never mind getting a written response from city clerk. I am going to be selfish. The building, if there

were no opposition from the public, would be able to accommodate more cops for the next 30 years. Should I tell my children and grandchildren to pay for it? If there is no opposition from the public, will there be an open tender in B.C. and across the country, or is it tailor-made for local entrepreneurs? In conclusion, Kelowna is open for business and that is why in the last election, pro-business 4Change, spent almost $35,000 on advertisements to handpick a mayor and a council that will spend, spend, spend on business.

SPCA auxiliary donates all its proceeds

d y n

To the editor: I am one of many volunteers who work at ,the monthly Saturday lunch and sale at First aUnited Church on Bernard. We are the SPCA Auxiliary. Plus, we have at least two yard sales at the SPCA shelter every year and a book and jewelry sale once a year. All the profits from these events are given to the SPCA for various uses—to sponsor a

cat room, ventilation for the cat room, weigh scales for animals, to pay vet bills. And we gave thousands of dollars toward having an area in front of our SPCA yard shed blacktopped so it was safer to walk on for such events as yard sales. My concern now is that there is a thrift store with the SPCA Thrift Store sign on it where people might choose to take their donated items, a store in which the owner says

▼ STRIKE RECAP

Teacher ‘mess’ before courts Fletcher from A8 Here’s a recap. In late February 2012, nearly 28,000 teachers (90 per cent) voted to go to the full strike allowed by the LRB. The government tabled legislation to impose a cooling-off period with provision for steep fines on the union for any further strike action, and

appointed a mediator. This kept schools open, and eventually yielded a two-year deal. In April 2012, the union voted to withdraw all volunteer work by teachers. By this time they had been ordered by the LRB to prepare secondterm report cards, in part so students would know if they could apply for

post-secondary studies. Once again this mess is before the court of appeal. Perhaps there will be better recognition of the real world this time around. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc Email: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

only a portion of the proceeds will go to the SPCA. I would like the public to be aware of this as our auxiliary has been able to donate thousands of dollars each year to our SPCA because of the donation of items to our fundraising events. C. Agnes Kloster, Kelowna

Eating becomes disordered when imposing food limits T hese days pretty much everyone has a friend or family member who seems to be pre-occupied with healthy eating. There are eating trends to match pretty much any taste—clean

ized by an extreme preoccupation with avoiding foods perceived to be unhealthy. The word means correct diet and implies a disorder that parallels other Paul eating disorders. Rather than focusing Latimer on quantity of food eaten and a desire to be thinner (as in anorexia), individuals with orthorexia focus on eating only food they believe to be right or pure. Although this is not a labeled eating disorder within the DSM, it is a term coined in 1997 to describe a distorted way of thinking about food that is becoming more common with the spread of individual diet fads through books, television programs and of course online. In the last decade alone, the number of people who claim to be avoiding whole food groups as part of a new eating system or ‘cleanse’ has noticeably increased. Of course, not everyone who is limiting their sugar intake or cutting out dairy is dealing with a serious eating disorder.

No jail time for former chop shop owner Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

John Edward Newcome is not going to jail. The former owner of Cycle Logic in West Kelowna was handed an 18-month conditional sentence by Judge Vincent Hogan Thursday afternoon after pleading guilty to 19 counts, mostly involving charges related to possession of stolen property and trafficking in stolen property. “The public will be amazed at the outcome of this,” said Hogan. Although the judge admitted he didn’t know the reason for the joint submission, he said he must trust the Crown has the public’s best interest at heart. Newcome was fined $500 plus a $100 victim fine surcharge for possession of a controlled substance, and was given the same fine for breach of undertaking or recogni-

sance. He must also pay Sovereign General Insurance Company $7,502, related to a 27-foot pontoon boat and boat trailer that was stolen in 2012. Newcome, who did not have a prior record, will be under house arrest for the first nine months of his conditional sentence; he will have a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew for the second half of the sentence. At no point during the conditional sentence will Newcome be allowed to possess drugs, alcohol or weapons. On Aug. 2, 2012, Mounties executed search warrant on Newcome’s Peachland residence and Cycle Logic on Julian Road in West Kelowna. In September 2012, Kelowna RCMP announced they had seized in excess of $750,000 worth of stolen goods at the end of a six-month investigation. Stolen items recovered

through the investigation included a motorcycle, ATVs, pontoon boats, pickup trucks and trailers. District of West Kelowna council unanimously opted to cancel Cycle Logic’s business li-

cence in March 2013. It was the first time the district had cancelled a business licence due to suspected criminal activity. As part of Newcome’s sentence, he must present

Growers kill apple agency idea Supporters for the creation of an Apple Research and Promotion Agency saw their idea fail to gain sufficient support from B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association members to proceed. The initiative was designed to help the industry act collectively on research and promotion projects.

The votes submitted surpassed the requirement, at 43.2 per cent, but the yes side didn’t achieve the 65 per cent level. As a result, the plan will not be forwarded to the B.C.

The UBCO Department of Creative Studies and the Visual Arts Course Union will host a Visiting Artist talk and book launch by UBC Okanagan alumna (BFA ’09) Sarah Burwash. Burwash will do an illustrated public talk on Monday, Feb. 24, noon, at the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies building (studio 222). Her presentation will be followed by a book signing for The Far Woods. Burwash grew up in Rossland and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at UBCO in 2009. She now lives in Nova Scotia. Over the past five years she has compiled an extensive history of solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US and abroad. She has participated in numerous artist residencies across Canada and in the U.S., and has just completed a six-week thematic residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Widely recognized and admired for her extraordinary talent in narrative drawing, watercolour, and illustrational drawing, she is also active in video, animation, ‘zines and artist book works. Her book The Far Woods was influenced by her artist residency locations, travels in the wilderness, and stories from remote areas and rural communities.

Tuesday, March 18, 7 p.m., at Grace Lutheran Church, 1162 Hudson Rd., in West Kelowna. Tickets can be purchased in advance at West Kelowna Music School, 2372 Dobbin Rd, in Westbank. Wheeler, from Red Deer, Alta., holds a doctorate in piano performance and pedagogy and is currently on faculty at Red Deer College in Alberta where he teaches piano.

PUBLIC FORUM

Sonatas and nocturnes performed by acclaimed Canadian pianist Dale Wheeler featuring the musical works of composers Beethoven, Chopin, Haydn, Liebermann, Field, Scriabin and Czerny will be presented

IN THE LOOP

On Thursday, Feb. 27, 5 p.m., the ongoing Okanagan Institute Express series at the Bohemian Café, 524 Bernard Ave. in Kelowna will present Art Active: Making a Difference. The guest speakers will be artist Dianne Ber-

sea and writer and UBCO professor Nancy Holmes. They will discuss two projects that demonstrate how the arts can drive and inspire environmental and community activism—art for an oil-free coast and dig your neighbourhood. Bersea has been a professional artist for more than 35 years with creative beginnings in the

wild places of Canada’s western province, which included a river-side log cabin nestled in the Okanagan Mountains, and a lighthouse station on the blustery outer coast of Vancouver Island. On a emergency air base in the open grassland of the Fraser Plateau, Bersea had her first formal education as a home schooler. “I still have a great fondness for all that I encountered in my earliest years—the rich, deep mysteries of the rainforest, the expanse of warm colour in rangeland and high plateau. It’s no wonder that I love having a close, immediate relationship with my physical and emotional landscape.”

GLENNA TURNBULL/CONTRIBUTOR

Celebrate composer Bach’s birthday at the Bottega

It’s likely that Johann Sebastian Bach celebrated his birthday the way most of us do – surrounded by friends and special music. And that’s just what the Early Music Studio plans to do for its March 8 event Bach’s Birthday Concert, to be held at Bottega, 4485 Sallows Rd. in east Kelowna. There will be plenty of music and even a Bach birthday cake. In this concert celebrating Bach’s 329th birthday, lutenist Clive Titmuss and harpsichordist Susan Adams explore new insights into the sparkling solo music that Bach wrote. How did Bach’s signature style come about, and for which gifted players did he write his unique and personal early works?  The players of the Early Music Studio present a performance in the lucid Baroque style for which they have become renowned, which explores the psychology that lies under Bach’s enduring genius. One of the world’s great creators, Bach was a simple and good-humoured man, who enjoyed family life and trading ideas with colleagues. As his fame grew, he came into contact with other famous virtuoso players, who asked him for new compositions.  He obliged by re-working favourite music compositions from his early years, when his responsibilities had been lighter and he had more time to write for no reason other than the pleasure it brought

him. Bach’s willingness to create music for its own sake ensured his place among the world’s most revered artists. Sometime in the 1730s, Bach had a visit from the most highly paid musician at the Saxon court. Sylvius Leopold Weiss was a lute player whose music may have influenced Bach’s own writing. During Weiss’s visit, it is possible that Bach demonstrated a new instrument he had commissioned—a harpsichord with lute strings that, according to one writer, was “supposed to fool the ear of a professional lutenist.”  It is easy to imagine Weiss’s surprise when Bach sat at the instrument and masterfully played passages of his music written to imitate the lute style, but with the speed and bravura of his most difficult keyboard music. Titmuss will play a group of pieces that Bach wrote early in his career, and later arranged for a lutenist to play.  “I don’t feel that the music was originally written at the lute, but probably at the keyboard.  It is a brilliant composition and a convincing imitation of the lute style.  It’s an intriguing question: was Weiss’ ear fooled? He must certainly have been astonished,” Titmuss says.  Tickets are available online at www. earlymusicstudio.com, brownpapertickets.com, or at Annegret’s Chocolates in the Towne Centre Mall on Bernard in Kelowna.

UBC OKANAGAN’S Concrete Jungle team slides down the hill at the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race. The Engineers came home with an overall second-place finish.

UBCO engineers slide to the top in toboggan race What do engineers, concrete, and a slippery slope have in common? If they are UBC Okanagan engineering students, the answer has to be the annual Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR). UBCO’s team recently returned from Ontario where it picked up a number of awards including a second-place overall finish. UBC’s Concrete Toboggan Club is a student-based organization with more than 40 engineering students involved. The club’s goal is to design, construct, and race a toboggan with a sliding surface made of concrete. Along with a working braking system and

room for five passengers, each sled must also have steering control, a roll cage, weigh less than 300 pounds, and be able to sustain an 80 km/hr crash. Team captain John Hillis, a fourth-year civil engineering student, says the team took on a Concrete Jungle theme, borrowing from the innovative bamboo-framed toboggan. Concrete Jungle won a total of four trophies getting the nod for best performing toboggan, King of the Hill, fastest toboggan, and second overall. “What truly makes the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race special is that it motivates you to go beyond the specifics that you’ve learned in the

classroom,” Hillis said. “It inspires you to seek an application to the theory, and it does so in a manner that encourages social cohesion, camaraderie, as well as a love for learning.” While still basking in the glow of a successful race, Hillis says the team is now making plans for next year as UBC Okanagan will host the national event, bringing hundreds of competitors to Kelowna and Big White for the 2015 race. The GNCTR is the oldest and largest engineering student competition in Canada and it attracts more than 400 students each year. The first race was held in 1974 in Red Deer, Alberta.

Underdog role just fine with Heat women Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball squad already made history by winning the school’s first ever Canada West playoff series last weekend. Steve Manuel’s team is looking to add another landmark moment this weekend in Vancouver. A top-three finish at the Canada West Final Four tourney would earn UBCO its first ever trip to the CIS national volleyball championship, Feb. 28 to March 2 in Regina. The Heat will face the rival and favoured UBC Thunderbirds Friday night in the semifinals, while Manitoba battles Trinity Western. The Thunderbirds (184) are the defending national champs and defeated the Heat (12-10) in both matches this season. On paper the odds the may be stacked against the Heat, but Manuel expects his team to play like there’s nothing to lose— much like UBCO did last weekend in knocking off Brandon in back-to-back

matches in the quarters. “There’s no question, we won’t pretend we’re not going to be nervous, but at the same time we need to just go out there and play, not worry and don’t sweat the little things,” Manuel said. “Basically we want to just go out, hit the crap out of the ball and…just play loose. Don’t worry about the last play, just move onto the next one. That’s what they did in Brandon…we’ll just try and recreate that.” Co-captain Jillian Festival is one of three Heat players who will graduate from the UBCO program at season’s end. The 6-foot-0 outside hitter from Calgary said it’s gratifying to see how far the Heat has come in a relatively short time. “We’ve been working towards being a presence in the CIS since even before we were in Canada West, so it’s great to accomplish what we have,” said Festival, who is joined by fellow grads Lenai Schmidt and Kendra Wayling. “There have been bumps along the road, we’ve really had to

work for it, but it’s really been a rewarding journey.” As for this Friday’s matchup with UBC and the prospects of earning a trip to nationals, Festival expects her teammates to leave it all on the floor. “We really feel like we have nothing to lose, now we just have to play free and loose and enjoy the moment,” Festival said. “This is the best team we’ve ever had, everyone has performed and contributed to put us where we are now. “UBC is a great team, but like every team they’ve lost some matches. We feel like if we play our game, then we have a good chance.” Even if the Heat loses Friday, they would have one more chance to qualify for nationals with a win on Saturday. The two finalists as well as the bronze medal winner will all lock up berths to the CIS championship in Regina.

KLOMPS AN ALL-STAR

Third-year middle Katy Klomps of the Heat has been named to the

Canada West second allstar team. The Surrey Christian High School grad finished third in total blocks in Canada West at 1.42 per set, the seventh-best in conference history. “She has definitely established herself as one of the best middle blockers in the nation,” coach Steve Manuel said of Klomps. “But it is not just on defense that she will impact a game for us. She can also attack and do so very efficiently, she has also emerged as a leader and is a spirited competitor.”

JAKSZUK A TOP ROOKIE

Heat outside hitter Michelle Jakszuk has been named to the Canada West all-rookie team for 2013-14. The 6-foot-2 outside hitter from Gibsons excelled at coming off the bench and providing UBCO with a spark when needed. “Good things always seem to happen when Michelle is on the floor,” said Steve Manuel. “She has the ability to make an impact whenever she enters the game.”

Kelowna Rockets and P.G. Cougars well-acquainted rivals Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

If familiarity does in fact breed contempt, then the Kelowna Rockets and Prince George Cougars will be downright annoyed by each other’s company by the middle of next week. The two clubs will meet for a WHL doubleheader this weekend, Friday and Saturday nights in Prince George, before hooking up again

Tuesday night at Prospera Place.

All told, the Rockets and Cougars will have met four times in a span of just 11 days. “With that many games in such a short period of time, a bit of a rivalry gets created, for sure,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska, whose team won 4-2 over P.G. on Feb. 14 in Kelowna. “They’re going to be competitive games. They’re fighting for playoffs, and we’re looking to get as many points as we can coming down to the

end of the season. The games should be intense.” The Rockets, who are on a fourgame winning streak, are coming off a dominant effort in a 5-1 win over the visiting Tri-City Americans on Wednesday night a Prospera Place. The Rockets scored three times in the first 13 minutes to put the game out of the Ams’ reach early. “I liked our effort, we looked energized and refeshed,” Huska said. “We

had a good start, and when you score three goals like that, it makes it hard on the other team to come back.” The Rockets (47-8-0-4) lead the Portland Winterhawks (43-12-2-3) by seven points for first overall in the WHL, with Kelowna holding a game in hand. The Victoria Royals are 10 back of Kelowna. The Rockets have 13 games remaining in the regular season, including four against the Vancouver Giants.

The Rockets were matched up against the Boston Shamrocks in the third place game and came away with a 3-1 win placing third in the event with a 3-1-1 record. Ayearst said it was a good event for the team heading into another B.C. Hockey Female Major Midget Super Weekend Feb. 21 to 23 in Kelowna. Kelowna plays three league games this weekend: On Friday at CNC at 4 p.m. against the North Shore Avalanche, on Saturday in Rutland at 10:15 a.m. against Prince George and in Rutland again at 5:30 p.m. versus Kootenay Wildcats.

FEB. 20-27TH

Six members of the Kelowna AquaJets recently returned from New Westminster after competing at the Western Canadian Championships. The competition hosted 550 of Western Canada’s best swimmers in the four-day event. Head coach Peter Wilkins was pleased with the teams progress. “Every year we compete at this meet we are bringing more swimmers, showing more experience, and getting better results,” he said. The AquaJets placed 28th overall out of over 60 teams, up from last years finish of 34th spot. Josh Zakala, 15, lead the team, finding the podium three times in the Youth Mens (16-andunder) category. All three swims 1500 Free, 800 Free and 400 IM placed him in third. Zakala also finished fifth (400 Free), 6th (200 IM) 7th (200 Back) 8th (200 Free) and 11th in the 50 Back. Two of these performances were also good for KAJ Club records in the 50 Back, 27.64, and 800

the weekend “It is the first time in recorded history the Jets have been able to put a relay together at this meet. The girls did the team very proud.” Katie Dunlop, 15, showed her experience at the meet, returning for her third time, earning 5 Finals, placing 6th (200 Breast), 8th (50 Breast), 13th (100 Breast), and 15th (50 Free and 200 IM). Tia Itterman, also returning for her third year posted a 12th place finish in the 1500 Free, 19th (800 Free), 29th (50 Fly), and 34th (400 IM). Attending Westerns for their first time were: Kyra McNulty, Clarisse Obedkoff and Skye Kinnear. McNulty competed in the three backstroke events placing 18th, 22nd and 31st with best times in each event. Obedkoff competed in the 200 and 400 IM (19th and 46th) along with the 100 and 200 Fly (46th and 22nd), while Kinnear raced the three breaststroke events (21st, 24th, 29th) and the 200 IM (40th).

Josh Zakala Free 8:17.64 recently held by Roland Bauhart (1997) and Christian Desjarlais (2011). Teammate Kyra McNulty was also able to lower her own club record in the 13-14 Girls Backstroke to a 31.45. McNulty also helped three other records shatter on the weekend with the team efforts in the relay events: 4x50 Free 1:53.60 (McNulty, Katie Dunlop, Clarisse Obedkoff, Tia Itterman), 4x100 Free —4:09.29 (Dunlop,Itterman, Obedkoff, McNulty), 4x100 Medley—4:36.60 (McNulty, Dunlop, Itterman, Obedkoff).

“I was having severe lower back pain. I saw my medical doctor and was given pain killers. I could only sleep 3 hours at a time, waking up in pain.

The success of the Odlum Brown Model Portfolio since inception is an example of how our disciplined investment approach can help you stay ahead of the crowd.

ator’s inconsistent dedication to pure chaos. Here’s a small sample. I found an old Capital News (actually not that old) from February 2008 and sure enough there was a HodgePodge column within. Since I don’t remember writing it, I highly doubt you recall reading it. Attached to it was the newspaper article from a week prior that inspired the column. I print it again for your chuckling pleasure: “All righty then, good to see there’s still some sense of adventure left in the old Okanagan Mission area. However, I strongly suggest this tale should serve as a wake-up example for others. (I’m just baring my thoughts, that’s all). “The boys and girls in blue must still be chuckling over the interesting vehicular ‘mishap’ Thursday on Cook Road. “Seems two occupants of an SUV decided a little late (late) night skinny dip was in the plan but on the return route home (?) managed to flip the vehicle on its side. Apparently, the male driver turned too sharp while backing up and dumped it. “I’m willing to bet he had not been keeping his

eye on the road. “Both the driver and the female passenger were naked. “Police gave the driver a 24-hour driving ban for alcohol (to warm them up perhaps?). The 2:30 a.m. incident turned into a frosty wake-up call for all; the temperature was minus 6 at the time. “Now I’m sure there are numerous good lessons to be learned from this story, folks, but a couple of blatant ones jump out right away for me. Quick or what? “First, never back up really, really quickly when you have the wheels turned sharp. Also check for ditches and other cars. “Second, if you do back up foolishly make sure you have your seat belts on properly. For goodness sakes make sure you watch very carefully where you put the straps. “Third, always keep your eyes on the road. “Fourth, strongly consider skinny dipping during a warmer time of year. July or August seem most popular here in Kelowna, “Fifth, if you must skinny dip in February consider doing it in a hot tub, a friend’s pool, or even your own bath tub. It may not be quite as exciting; however it’s generally less embarrassing.

“And finally, if you are going to skinny dip there’s no rule saying you have to take your clothes off at home. In fact most people take their clothes off once they get to the water. “In other words, consider wearing some clothes (pants and top, robe, or even a towel) until you get to the water. Take off the clothes before you get in the water. (Wet towels do not dry you well later, either). “Once you are done you can always put the clothes or robe or towel back on again to keep you warm for the drive home —or wherever you might be going next. (Jogging, grocery shopping, walking the dog…) “Please don’t take this column as pushy or telling you what to do because obviously it’s all about free thinking and such. I’m just trying to be helpful. Brief but succinct —and stuff. “Just consider this as more helpful hints from HodgePodge.” ••• Stay tuned for next week when I might cautiously venture out to the shed for more inspiration.

SURFING is a big draw in Rincon, where waves top out at 25 or 30 feet high on Puerto Rico’s west coast.

Rincon beckons visitors to Puerto Rico’s west coast Suzanne Van Atten CONTRIBUTOR

RINCON, Puerto Rico—When the World Surfing competition came to Puerto Rico in 1968, Rincon wasn’t even a dot on most maps of the island. But that November, competitive surfers from around the world descended on the tiny west coast town, along with film crews for ABCTV’s Wide World of Sports, which was covering the sport for the first time. In an instant, Rincon was transformed. Every It’s simple really. It’sflock where year afterward, surfers began to there you between November and April when waves peaked at 25 and 30 feet, and a rustic assortment of

Taino also offers sunset and whale watching tours, as well as offshore fishing and bluewater hunting charters for wahoo, tuna and mahi-mahi. Stand-up paddle boarding and parasailing are also available, as is horseback riding for landlubbers. Whatever you do during the day, be sure to wrap it up in time for sunset because watching that flaming yellow ball drop into the ocean is a major social event in Rincon. The large outdoor

ner and dine on whole fried snapper or churrasco. Once darkness falls, the surfing crowd usually heads over to Pool Bar, a dark wooded outdoor bar beside a small swimming pool and a large movie screen, which usually shows surf flicks. The older set might opt for a nightcap at Sea Glass Bar, a dark, cozy bar at the Lazy Parrot Inn. This terraced property features a full-service restaurant on street level, and a daytime poolside bar on the lowest level. But in the middle, tucked into a lushly landscaped garden lit with tiki torches, is this quiet

spot where the bartender is knowledgeable and the conversation convivial. For the late-night party crowd still raring to go, Shipwreck Bar & Grill is the place to go to close down the night. The covered patio bar beside Taino Divers looks like something Gilligan might have built, but the crowd tends to be colorful and garrulous, and the menu offers above-average pub fare, ideal for satisfying the midnight munchies. That’s all during high season, of course. The rest of the year, from May to October, the number of visitors dwindles, and many businesses B.C. Travel Registrar #1851-3

reduce their hours or shut down altogether. Rincon turns back into a sleepy little town much like it was before the World Surfing competition arrived in 1968. Plenty of the locals probably prefer it that way, but there’s no turning back now, especially when the surf’s up.

IF YOU GO

Getting there: Fly Delta or Southwest Airlines to Luis Munoz Marin International Airport (SJU) in San Juan and drive 93 miles west to Rincon. Rent a car from a major agency, or try locally based Charlie Car Rental (www.charliecars.com), a well-run operation offering economical rates. The route is mostly over an expressway, called the autopista. Allow three hours for traffic and tolls (25 cents-$1.25). Another option is to fly directly to the west coast into Rafael Hernandez Airport (BQN) in Aguadilla, just 12 miles from Rincon, but it requires flying from Jacksonville, Fla., on Jet Blue or Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Spirit Air. National Car Rental and Charlie Car Rental have agents at the Aguadilla airport. The drive to Rincon takes about 30 minutes. Where to stay •La Rosa Inglesa / The English Rose. The quiet, three-unit B&B is a newly constructed, hilltop property with a tiny pool and gorgeous views. The restaurant serves the best breakfast in town, but don’t be discouraged by the long waits.

The Corolla is sold in several different trim levels, starting at $15,995 to get the base CE, but the reality is that most Canadians will upgrade to the $19,215 S (Sport) or the LE for $19,500. To upgrade to this $20,500 LE Eco model is $1,035 over the S model and $750 over the regular LE.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

Fun cars for singles under $30,000 Hot hatch? I think so. Ford’s Focus ST (ST meaning Sports Technologies) is quite the exciting ride. As soon as you sit inside the Ford Focus ST cabin, you’re embraced by Recaro sport seats that hug you and don’t let go. There’s a six-speed manual gearbox

Yes, you can buy fun cars for under 30 grand. A few weeks ago, I recommended five fun coupes for singles, whose base prices didn’t start with a three. Readers demanded more so here are five more cars that are a little easier on the wallet in purchase and operation. Disclaimer, you don’t have to be single and willing to mingle to fall in love with these vehicles. In fact, some of them are family friendly. No really, they are. Ford Focus ST- $29,999

Fiat 500 Abarth - $20,995 Anytime you see a scorpion on something – or in real life – you can count on there being some sort of sting.

comes to life. It’s anything but tame in tone. Put the five-speed, heavy duty manual transmission into gear and hopefully you’ll be able to make good use of the 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. That’s the kind of power being generated from its 1.4L, MultiAir turbocharged engine. Along with a performance tuned-suspension, performance brakes and 16-inch wheels, this Fiat might be small, but makes up any “size matters” issues with its dynamic performance. Honda Civic SI (Coupe/Sedan) - $26,245/$26,250 Take the exceptional reliability of Honda, its popular-selling Civic coupe/ sedan, lace it with a potent engine and some cool gadgetry and you have the SI trim. Up until only a few years ago, the Civic SI was only offered in coupe format, but that changed in 2007. Those who wanted performance and practicality would be granted access to such pleasures of life. Setting it apart from its tamer siblings is a 2.4-litre engine producing 201 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft of torque. It also comes standard with 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. Not to mention a 6-speed manual transmission. Whether opting for two or four doors, you can’t go wrong. Scion FR-S - $26,450 The return of the fun-todrive rear-wheel drive sports coupe that’s priced under $30K can be linked to the Scion FR-S. You could also say it is linked with the Subaru BRZ as these four-seater, two-door vehicles were a joint venture product between the two Japanese brands. The FR-S features a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine, developed in collaboration with Subaru. It combines Subaru’s horizontally opposed engine and Toyota’s D-4S injection system. The result is 200 naturally aspirated horses and 151 lb-ft of torque and can be matched with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The back seats might not be incredibly comfortable for rear passengers but all the festivities are happening up front anyway. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Driving topless in the Valley of Fire Las Vegas, Nevada – Took the all-new BMW 4 Series Cabriolet on one of those leisurely and slow drives typical of a Sunday through Nevada’s stunningly beautiful Valley of Fire National Park. Problem was that it was a Tuesday and the only other car on the road seemed to be the somewhat inappropriately named pace car ahead that kept our speed to a fraction below the posted 30 mph speed limit (which is 48.280 km/h to be precise). Apparently, the overzealous state troopers, you know the guys with the mirrored sunglasses, had warned the Bavarian hosts that they would hold them responsible for any outrageous road behaviour, hence the so called pace cars ahead of each group of pearl white 435i cabriolets. This topless edition joins its coupe sibling in the new 4 series classification which is really a new name for 3 Series two-door models. Just like the 2 Series coupes are actually two-door 1 Series models. Oh, never mind. Anyway, this is a tourer for those with the cash rather than the sports-minded - $67,400 for the test car – so perhaps the afternoon stroll was more appropriate than a blast on the nearby freeway. (A base 428i version starts at $56,600, and comes with a 2.0-litre, 241 hp, turbocharged four-cylinder engine.) If you are looking for feedback through the steering, you are not going

to get much but there is no argument that it offers a smooth ride and cornering is effortless at 32 mph – devils aren’t we? Once out of the park, the Smokey bears joined the press pack as impromptu pace cars! – One ahead of us pulled off at a donut shop as we hit the highway. Here was our chance to open up. A bit. The 300-hp turbo inline-six swiftly moved through eight-speed auto tranny to 100 klicks in a smidgen under six seconds then I chickened out. (Six-speed manual transmissions will be available in Canada, which should increase sportiness in performance.) Rumours circulated the evening dinner that a member of the Russian press corps had secured a $1,000 fine on that same stretch of road at about the time my co-driver and I had taken turns to punch the pedal and play briefly with steering-wheel mounted paddle gear changers. Oh, and that’s when he were able to test the true effectiveness of the rear air

onds. We were told it could even be raised in speeds up to 18 km/h. Why would you want to? When that top is in place it truly looks like a coupe. Cool but even cooler when you lower the windows and see it as a pillar-less coupe! When the top is up it offers 370 litres of trunk space (222 litres when topless), which makes it the roomiest in its segment. BMW says it will comfortably stash two sets of golf clubs, if you are that way afflicted. Classy leather interior, with ergonomically correct front seats. Can’t say the same about the back seats but

diffuser (thumbs up) though when it is in place it rules out back seat passengers (thumbs down). And the rush of cooler desert air prompted us to flick the switch on the neck warmers, ah yes, a mark of true luxury. Truth is this car is more about looks. How it looks and how you look in it. And it looks absolutely fabulous, darling, now you ask. Can’t speak for myself. It is simple elegant in profile but a scowling front gives it beastly pretensions. The power hard top rises smoothly from its hiding place in the trunk in 20 sec-

The folks over a GM felt it was time to raise the bar and with this latest incarnation of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. And indeed it took a major step forward by anybody’s estimation. Competition is fierce in the ½-ton pickup market and with heavy concentration on fuel consumption; it’s tough to find a balance between fuel economy and a strong capable truck. But the Silverado designers achieved that balance and were recognized very publicly for that achievement. The awards presentation

at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit saw GM haul away

top honours for the Corvette Stingray and Silverado pickup, which were named North American Car and Truck of the year. You can’t just beef up a suspension and still expect a smooth ride. Chev did: Ta he Silverado utilizes finely tuned shock absorbers that respond to small vibrations and tackle the big bounces with ease. I admit I had my doubts. Driving the Silverado over a pothole-laden road did change the dynamics of this truck on how it handled but the shocks adjusted themselves perfectly.

The frame mounts at the back of the cab are hydraulic and this helps to control any vibration. The rear axle size has been increased to handle the larger torque output from the engine. Speaking of engines the Silverado offers three engine choices. The first is a 4.3L V6 with a 285 horsepower and 305 foot pounds of torque. An all-aluminum 5.3L V8 with 355 horsepower and a 6.2L EcoTec V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 450 foot pounds of torque. This engine also has active noise cancellation, very similar to good quality headphones! The transmission is a six-speed electronically controlled automatic with two overdrive gears. It has an estimated combined fuel economy of 13/8.7 L/100 km. Although my real world numbers were not that close, the transmission undoubtedly helped push a tank of gas a little farther than I expected. Properly equipped, this Silverado can tow up to 5216 kg (11,500 lb) which is impressive for a ½ ton pickup. The redesigned interior offers more leg room and is easily accessed through the larger doors. Stain resistant cloth seats or optional leather seats are very comfortable. The glove box is a

two-piece design and the centre console has plenty of room for files and junk to go missing for years! The steering wheel controls and other knobs on the dash are within reachable distance from the driver and larger enough that they can be used while wearing work gloves. My tester was equipped with Mylink system that basically controls everything. The voice recognition is easy to use and can respond to normal speech patterns. Bluetooth capabilities allow easy pairing of any smart phone with very little effort and accessing your music is a breeze. The rear bumper has steps built into it on both corners of the truck, making the job of climbing in the back an easy task. The tailgate features EZ-lift hardware that makes lowering the tailgate a one handed job. An available LED lights mounted under the box rails lights up the cargo area and makes every nook and cranny visible. Many innovative improvements were made to this truck to keep up with the consumer demands and the result will help spur Canadian sales. ian.harwood@drivewaybc. ca

Honda CR-Z 2011 to 2013 By Bob McHugh Honda introduced the world’s first hot-hybridhatch with the launch of its CR-Z for the 2011 model year. The CR-Z is a stylish, driver-focused, small two-seat hatchback that’s fun-to-drive, and it offers great fuel economy. It’s a contemporary take on an older (last sold in 1991) and much loved pocket-rocket called the Honda CRX, Reliability has been outstanding and the CR-Z’s resale value on the used market is above average, a

(10-kilowatt) Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system to provide a maximum of 122 horsepower @ 6000 rpm. It’s essentially the same (mild-hybrid) drive system that’s also used in the Honda Insight and Honda Civic Hybrid. City/ highway fuel economy (with auto) is rated at 5.6/5.0 L/100km. The CR-Z, however, does offer two unique hybrid-drive differences. A six-speed manual transmission option being the first and a threemode operational feature, which allows a driver to choose between Sport,

is also on the firm side and combined with its short wheelbase uneven road surfaces can make the ride choppy. The sport theme continues on the inside with bucket-style seats that offer more side support on both the seatback and cushion. It also comes with large storage bins in the rear (instead of seats) that are covered by a drop-down cargo area divider when expanded trunk space is needed. Under hood, there is a 1.5-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder gas engine that’s teamed with Honda’s compact

nice bonus for owners. It is based on a chassis shared with the Honda Fit, an undeniably more practical (with seats for 4/5) vehicle option that lacks the style and sporty appeal of the CR-Z. Under its wedge-like aerodynamic design is a lightweight yet rigid structure. Its tapering roofline leads to an abrupt tail end with a double-window rear hatch. While the secondary lower glass panel does provide a driver some addition rear vision, overall rearward sightlines are still a drawback. The suspension

A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase. steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters that provide seven-speed sequential gear-ratio control. The sport mode has to be selected to use the paddle shifters, but it’s an impressively quick acting feature that’s fun to use. The Econ mode “smoothes” throttle inputs but will still kick down the transmission and give full throttle if the driver floors the gas pedal. It also dampens steering response, air conditioning use and activates the idle stop/ start feature sooner, which is a big fuel saver in stopand-go city driving. Normal mode is a middle-blend of the Sport and Econ modes. No significant changes were made to CR-Z for the 2012 model year, other than vehicles with a red exterior could be ordered with black seat fabric. The 2013 CR-Z did get a few updates, including a more powerful battery pack, a standard reverse camera and Bluetooth. It was also offered in

a Premium trim edition. A Honda legend returns with a modern twist, the Honda CR-Z offers agile handling and a more engaging driving experience than previously available in a small hybrid vehicle. Safety Recalls: 2011 to 2013 Honda CR-Z: 2011: In vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, specific operating conditions (such as extreme temperatures, combined with high battery and accessory loads, and operation near engine stalling speeds), could allow the Engine Control Unit (ECU) to activate the engine’s stall prevention assist software. This might inadvertently command the hybrid system’s electric motor to rotate the engine in the opposite direction and cause the vehicle to move in a reverse direction than expected. Dealers will update the ECU software. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc. ca

▼ HOME IMPROVEMENT

What’s hot in 2014: Smart homes and home automation From smartphones to smart cars, technology is transforming virtually every aspect of our busy lives. Technologies not only make life easier while on the go, but new options are quickly simplifying life at home as well. Home automation is proving to be a top home improvement trend, making the Jetsons’ futuristic lifestyle more realistic than ever before. Some experts are predicting 2014 will be the year of the smart home, but what does that mean to the average homeowner?

The term smart home refers to a house with technology and automated features for things like heating, lighting and electronic devices. Automation is becoming the new norm in three main areas of the home. 1. Energy management and environmental impact A home’s heating, cooling and electrical systems can be enhanced through home automation technologies. Boosting comfort levels, these technologies make it easier than ever to monitor energy and water usage, helping to reduce a family’s environmental foot-

print as well as their energy bill. Imagine turning your lights on remotely or adjusting the heat so your home is toasty warm by the time you return from work. Home management systems let you access and adjust comfort controls from your smartphone, tablet or computer. Monitor and control lights or the thermostat from anywhere with Internet access, making it easy to save energy while away. You can even add water leak detectors to plumbing

spaces within the home and receive an alert if the sensor comes in contact with water, helping you to react faster to reduce property damage and water waste. 2. Streamlining the kitchen and cooking processes The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it’s no surprise that this area is getting a makeover thanks to technology enhancements. From basic motion-sensing faucets that eliminate the need for touching them with messy hands when cooking to appliances that think for you, the kitchen is a key component of

a smart home. For example, today’s dishwashers clean faster and more efficiently than ever, thanks to technology that assesses soil levels and adjusts cleaning intensities. Ovens now come with sensors that evenly heat dishes, eliminating the need to rotate pans or use baking stones. Refrigerators even come with options that allow you to rapidly cool or freeze foods when they need to be brought down to a lower temperature quickly for food safety purposes. 3. Safety and security of a

property Security systems have never been more interactive, and new options are surprisingly affordable for homeowners looking to take the first step toward upgrading to a smart home. It can be an inexpensive option that includes motion sensors, a keypad, and door, window and cabinet sensors. How do these systems help your home to think smarter and be more secure? It can create the opportunity to receive an email, text or

▼ SEMINARS

Local financial advisor to talk about business, wealth management

Konrad Pimiskern

Konrad Pimiskern will be offering seminars on a host of financial issues at this year’s Kelowna Home Show. Pimiskern, a financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments in Ke-

lowna, has been serving clients locally since 1995. As a financial advisor, Pimiskern helps his clients make sense of the complicated world of finance and investments. And he will extend his

knowledge and advice at three seminars this weekend. On Saturday, 1 p.m., Pimiskern will illustrate the differences between using a will or a trust for estate planning.

Later that day at 4:30 p.m., Pimiskern will focus on business owners, talking about corporate planning and taxation strategies. He will discuss earning a living from your

business, using share structures to split income, retiring from your business and estate planning for your business. His third presentation on Sunday, 1 p.m., will address wealth manage-

ment and taxation issues. Pimiskern will speak about the four pillars of wealth and taxation planning—income splitting, tax-planned wills, trusts and insurance planning tools.

▼ POST-RECESSION

House remodeling interest starting to make a comeback Home remodeling may have taken a backseat during the recession years of 2010 to 2012, but not anymore. According to a recent Hanley Wood survey, remodeling sales were up 10 per cent in 2013 compared to 2012, and 45 per cent of remodelers surveyed expected another 10 per cent growth in 2014. Home remodeling is back in again, and with the desire to improve our homesteads come a bunch of new and exciting trends we’ll start seeing next year. Modern Kitchens According to data compiled by Hanley Wood and Remodeling Magazine, 61 per cent of remodelers surveyed expect to complete kitchen remodels in 2014, more than any other room in the house. And, those remodels are expected to follow a new trend. Not so long ago, remodeled kitchens had a rustic feel with warm paint colors and cabinetry, and wrought iron hardware and lighting. Now, modern is in, with white or grey cabinetry, simple countertops, glossy finishes and minimalist designs. Appliances are more likely to be blended into the design or hidden away from view entirely to give the kitchen a sleeker appearance. Brass Accents Brass made a comeback at home-design and remodeling conventions this year and the trend is expected to pick up in 2014. While brass is nothing new, it has gotten a facelift.

Highly polished, bright brass hardware and lighting is gone; rustic, dull and hammered brass is in. The new looks will be incorporated into kitchen and bathroom hardware as well as lighting and door hardware throughout the house. Updating The Bathroom In the Hanley Wood survey, bathrooms came in second to the kitchen with 58 per cent of remodelers planning to do bathroom remodels in 2014. As far as style, vintage bathrooms with wainscoting and claw-foot tubs won’t be as popular as resort-style bathrooms that feature amenities such as large walk-in showers with multiple shower heads, heated floors or towel racks, and jetted bathtubs. For colouring and style, glass tiles will be a popular feature as well as neutral and cool colours like ash  grey, light blue and off-white. Vibrant Colors While the kitchen may be getting the modern single-shade treatment next year, designers have a different idea for other rooms. Bright accent colours such as turquoise, yellow and orange that were popular in 2013 have a new twist; in 2014, they’ll be more of a focal point and even more vibrant with colors such as Green Flash, Lemon Zest, Nectarine and Rouge Red, according to Pantone, the international authority on colour. Designers will start featuring vibrant accent walls, main paint colours and flooring throughout bedrooms and main living

USE OF vibrant colours is a trend for 2014 in bedrooms and main living spaces . CONTRIBUTED

spaces. Sustainability Going green is nothing new, but sustainability may get easier in 2014 remodels. According to Craig Webb, editor-in-chief of Remodeling Magazine, “Manufacturers and builders are constantly getting greener and green-

er in the way they source materials and put up homes. Energy efficiency is becoming an assumption, not an add-on.” Remodels are beginning to now include renewable materials such as bamboo, energy-efficient appliances and additional designs that incorporate the local climate.

Renovation ideas that don’t have to be expensive

According to designer Robin Siegerman, principal of Sieguzi Kitchen & Home Inc. and author of Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchens, bathroom renovations can be surprisingly expensive for the generally smaller size of the room. That’s because so much of the expense, he says, is hidden in the walls, such as electrical and plumbing. But if your bathroom is in relatively good shape but uninspired from a design standpoint—often the case with condo units, for example—there’s much you can do to give it a spiffier look, with little or no professional help. Sigerman offers a few tips: Replacing an ugly bathroom faucet with a pretty one has become a relatively simple do-ityourself task, with many faucets now sold in kits that include all the fittings and complete instructions. Make sure you have the right type for the number of hole openings in the sink. *** There are companies that will come in and reface your countertop with a 1/4-inch veneer of granite, for the look of solid granite at a fraction of the cost. Alternatively, you can have a boring or worn laminate counter refaced with new laminate—there are ones on the market now that closely mimic stone, wood or other natural finishes, or go for something more fanciful if you like. *** Replace a boring plate-glass mirror with a framed version you can hang like art. Scoop up an ornate frame at an antique store (or pick out a nice one at a framer’s) and have the framer make it into a mirror for you. Attractive framed mirrors in every style from Victorian to modern can also be found at thrift stores, antique markets and home stores. *** If your bathtub or shower is tiled inside the enclosure but stops at the edge, and you can find matching tile, have it extended (or do it yourself, with new ceramic tile mounting kits available at box stores) the rest of the

‘‘

iron-on hemming tape and sew curtain rings along the top. Buy a plastic curtain liner from a bath shop, and hang. *** Think scale with bath accessories. One beautiful vase or piece of artwork (a sealed print is best if your bath gets very steamy) can have fabulous impact in a small space.

MANY BATHROOMS ARE CURSED WITH A SINGLE LIGHT FIXTURE DIRECTLY ABOVE THE MIRROR, WHICH CREATES UNFLATTERING SHADOWS

way around the bathroom to the 48-inch mark, like wainscoting. The advantage to doing this is more than aesthetic; it makes your bathroom much easier to clean, since you can wash the walls at the same time you do the floors. *** Many bathrooms are cursed with a single light fixture directly above the mirror, which creates unDAYS flatteringONLY! shadows. If you don’t want to have side sconces wired in, look for a fixture with two lights side by side, which will at least direct the light a little more to either side of your face. *** If your bathroom floor is ugly, cover it with a small pure-wool area rug. Unlike synthetics, wool is moisture and mildew resistant, resists dirt (and can be cleaned relatively easily), and if you choose an Oriental or Persian style, adds a touch of class. If it gets very wet, hang it up to dry. *** It’s amazing what a beautiful bathroom wall colour will do to add interest to the plainest room, and a small room takes only a day or so to paint. Be careful choosing colour, though: some blues and greens can be cold and unkind to skin tones, while too bright a colour may be overwhelming in a small room like a bath. At the very worst, if you choose a colour and don’t like the effect, it’s easy to paint over again. *** Making your own shower curtain is an easy job, even if you’re not a sewer. Measure the shower opening and purchase a few yards of beautiful fabric from a fabric outlet store. Finish the edges with

KELOWNA HOME SHOW ▼ PET STAINS

Having a pet cat or dog doesn’t have to mean sacrificing a clean house There’s no question that for a dedicated “pet parent,” a house is not a home without at least one fur-bearing critter. But even the most devoted pet owner has to admit that having little Foxy and Pumpkin in the family does make keeping a spotless, clean-smelling house just a bit more challenging. But it’s not a hopeless cause as there are mediating steps homeowners can take to minimize a negative impact your beloved pet may impose on a house.

KEEP LITTER BOX FRESH

Your Home. Better.

Inside or Out, Live the life of your dreams for less then you can imagine.

Even with multiple cats, keeping the litter box fresh is not difficult if you make it a daily task. Make sure you’re using the right kind of litter for your situation. There are many kinds of litter on the market today, such as formulations for multiple cats, or products made from corn or crushed walnut shells that do a great job of deodorizing and clumping. Keep a tightly covered, plastic bag-lined container next to the box that you can empty every few days; you can even buy special bag sealers that work like the kind of units that seal up diapers. Also, some municipalities allow you to put pet waste in your organic-waste “green” bin for collection. Add fresh litter to keep the level in the box at about two or three inches, and completely replace it every month or so.

CONTRIBUTED

A PET DOG or cat can present challenges for

homeowners who want to have a spotless, clean smelling house.

PET FUR CONTROL

For many pet owners, fur in your house, bed sheets, and car can be a chronic problem, but there are ways to keep it to a manageable level. Some breeds, especially those with long hair, benefit from regular trips to the groomer, but perhaps the most effective control—and often, the most pleasant for your pet—is just to brush him thoroughly every day. There are many kinds of brushes, each designed for a particular type of hair; your groomer or pet store associate can help you choose the right one for your pet. If your pet is shedding heavily (other than normal seasonal shedding), it could be a sign of stress, health or skin problems, or even just the wrong food. Your vet may be able to advise you if you need to take further action.

‘‘

HOUSEHOLD SPRAY DEODORIZERS OR CLEANERS MAY GET RID OF THE SMELL TEMPORARILY, BUT IT WILL COME BACK.

For fur that’s already on your clothes, couch, carpet, car upholstery, and everywhere else, you can get rubberized brushes that build up a static charge to attract the hair, or use one of those sticky brushes (either with tearoff sheets or reusable). Daily light vaccumming, sweeping or Swiffering will also help keep it from getting out of control.

PET STAIN CLEANUP

One of the thorniest

problems pet owners face is how to deal with accidents on upholstered furniture, carpeting, or floors. It’s crucial to clean up pet stains as thoroughly and quickly as possible, not just because the smell can be unpleasant and return to haunt you forever, but because your pet can smell it and may go back and relieve himself in the same spot. The trick is to use cleaning products specially made for pet stains, which contain a special enzyme that reacts to the bacteria in urine. Household spray deodorizers or cleaners may get rid of the smell temporarily, but it will come back. One product has an elongated spout-type applicator that gets right into the pile of the carpet (or other nooks and crannies), bringing the chemical right where it’s needed, and can be used with a special black light that exposes all traces of urine, for thorough cleanup. Other products you might consider, especially if pet mishaps are an ongoing problem, are adsorbent cleaning pads that wick up moisture better than the best paper towels, or products especially designed for surfaces such as hardwood floors. It’s true that those of use who share our homes with pets may have a little more cleaning to do than those who live in pet-free environments, but look at it this way—it’s a small price to pay for the devotion and friendship they give us in return.

▼ RENOVATIONS

Imposing some order on a cluttered kitchen Ideas from B14 If your cupboards are filled to overflowing or you frequently have to rummage through drawers to find things, it’s time to impose order. Here’s how: • Store things where you use them. Pots and pans are best kept near the range or cooktop; mixing bowls near the countertop you use for food preparation; plates, glasses and flatware near the dishwasher. • Group like items together—store all bakeware in the same cupboard, all wooden spoons in the same ceramic crock, all spices in the same drawer. • Store your most frequently used items in the most accessible places. Keep things you use most often at eye level; store heavy items below waist level and infrequently used items on high shelves (keep a step stool within easy reach for such

s

items) or in another area of the house. For example, if you use your oversized turkey platter only once a year, you don’t need to store it in the kitchen at all. Instead, stow it on a

high shelf in the garage or basement. • Declutter yearly. Take an inventory of all utensils, cookware and dishware annually. Get rid of unnecessary duplicates,

items that are damaged beyond repair, or things no longer used. • Keep small kitchen items in containers, seethrough bins if possible, with easy-to-read labels.

HOWARD JAMES REIMER

June 19, 1928 - February 10, 2014 Howard passed away peacefully in hospice following complications from Parkinson’s disease. He is survived by his wife Brigitte (nee Zickmantel), children Douglas (Barbara), Elizabeth (Jerry) and Neil (Amy), grandchildren Alex, Anneka, and Katie-Anne, and step-grandchildren James and Heather. Howard was born in Steinbach, Manitoba and received English degrees from the University of Winnipeg (B.A., M.A.) and from McMaster University (Ph.D.) From 1974 to 1993 he taught English literature at Okanagan University College in Kelowna, BC, with a special focus on Canadian literature. For many years he served as chair of the English Department and helped to lead the department through its transition to a four-year degree program. His other passion in life was singing, and he was the tenor soloist for some of the Okanagan Symphony performances of the Messiah at Christmas. He also gave recitals of Lieder and other art songs, and for eighteen years was choir director at St. David’s Presbyterian Church. Along with Brigitte, Howard was a committed member of his church and was active in community service. He was a founding member of the Kelowna Chamber Music Society and served for many years on session at St. David’s. Howard was devoted to Brigitte and his family. He took pride in all his children’s work and accomplishments, and provided love and care throughout their lives. He had a ready smile and a quiet but occasionally mischievous sense of humour. The family wishes to thank those at Kelowna General Hospital and Central Okanagan Hospice House who cared for Howard in his final days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Parkinson’s Society of British Columbia, or to St. David’s Presbyterian Church in Kelowna, BC. A service to celebrate Howard’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 24th at St. David’s Presbyterian Church, 271 Snowsell St., Kelowna, BC, with Dr. Lorna Hillian officiating. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

RUNKA, CELIA (ZITKO) 1938 ~ 2014

It is with heavy hearts, that the family of Celia Runka announce her death on February 6th, 2014 in Kelowna, BC. She was surrounded by daughters Shaundehl and Cayla Runka and her sister Gladys.

She graduated from Royal Columbian Hospital nursing program in 1960 and moved to Kelowna to work.

READ, ELAINE ELIZABETH February 5, 1942 ~ February 17, 2014 Oh Lord of mine, whose blessing touches our hearts, who has walked with us during the most troubled and dark times and graced us with light, hope and beauty throughout out our lives we pray to thee now: We pray now selfishly to take someone very dear to us to thine side, to bless her, free her soul and to care for her for the rest of eternity. A very special woman to all of us has crossed the final veil in our brief but wonderful existence in this world. I pray that your daughter Elaine Read finds peace and harmony, freedom and most importantly the perfect tee-time for heavens most beautiful golf course at your side. Elaine Read was a strong and stubborn (or as she would say determined) soul blessed with the gift of hard truths and endless love. She was not afraid to speak her mind if she knew it was in your best interest. She was not afraid to set you straight. However what she did, she did for love; she loved her family more then anything else. Well maybe except for a hole-in-one on the final course, make sure you let her win lord, she, like all Reads, was blessed with passion, courage and a strong will to fight. She was a mother, a grandmother, a friend and role model... among so much more she was a rock, who could stand against the turmoil one must sometimes face throughout one’s life with a defiant smile on her face. Her laugh was soft and warm infectious, her humour was strong and humble. She was a staple in this family whose greatest wish was simply to see everyone together and happy. We will miss our mom and grandmother more then anyone we have ever lost Lord, so please take her to your side. Bless her with peace, let her rest, she has known her own suffering and has shown us true strength and grace by defying it, growing from it, learning from it. She has taught us all that no matter what life gives you it is up to you to make the best of it, and even in darkness one can always smile. Take her to your side lord bless her with your grace, book her tee-time early and always let her win. Blessed though we were with our short time with her, we know that you will enjoy her company as much as we have. Protect her and love her and listen to what she has to say she’ll always be proud of you no matter the decisions you make... We love you grandma, mother to our family, We will miss you every day we’re sorry if we ever took you for granted and we hope you rest easy. We will live the rest of our lives with happiness and joy for you and never forget everything you’ve taught us and done for us. Rest easy until we can all be together again.. Elaine is survived by her four children, Kathy (Bruno), Daniel, Matthew, Ashley Tassoni, Kelly (Jurgen), Hope and Aidan Deagle, Jeremy Mattison, Terri (Don), Lucas, Tyson, Hailey Smith, Kevin (Shelia), Kolby, Skye Read. Thank you so much to all of our extended families and friends and especially to all of Mom’s friends for the outpouring of support, love and memories. A remembrance will take place in Kelowna this summer with a fun family and friend’s golf tournament.

Co-signing on the dotted line and liabilities as well as employment information. They’re also required to sign all of the mortgage documents and can expect to remain on title until such time as the applicant qualifies for the mortgage on the own. The co-signer is truly a co-owner. A guarantor personally guarantees the payments will be made if the original applicant defaults. The guarantor has no claim to the property because he/she is not on title but as guarantor he/she does sign the mortgage documents. A guarantor has to be stronger financially than a co-signer because he promises to carry the entire debt should the homeowner default. During the application process, a guarantor will undergo a credit check and must disclose assets, liabilities and income. It is a huge responsibility as the guarantor has fewer rights than a co-signer. Their obligation is the same as a co-signer, however, a guarantor doesn’t have the luxury of being on title so they don’t have a claim to the property. If the homeowner defaults on the payments and the situation deterior-

ates to the point that the homeowner cannot meet his/her obligations, the home will usually be sold and the guarantor will be responsible for the missed payments as well as any loss associated with the sale. Most lenders will offer early release policies that free the guarantor from obligation (usually after 12 months) if the borrower is current with payments and has established good credit or employment history. Before agreeing to act on behalf of an appli-

cant, co-signers or guarantors need to evaluate the commitment they’re willing to make for a default mortgage deal will reflect badly on their credit ratings. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250-470-8324), Darwyn Sloat (250718-4117), Kristin Rosdal (250-87803007) and Christine Hawkins (250826-2001).

With good air quality and venting condition on Thursday, the Regional District of Central Okanagan began controlled burning projects in Stephens Coyote Ridge Regional Park and Coldham Regional Park. This is to dispose of fire hazard debris collected as part of large fuel modification projects underway within a 20-hectare section of Stephen Coyote Ridge and nine hectares in Coldham

What it means to be a guarantor or co-sign on a mortgage is to either help to secure the financing to purchase or refinance a home. People often use the terms guarantor and co-signer interchangeably, however, each has very different responsibilities and rights. To begin with, a guarantor or co-signer will be required if the applicant is not able to obtain a mortgage approval independently. That is usually due to poor credit, an inadequate downpayment, insufficient employment history or questionable income. Most mortgages will be approved if there is someone to back the borrower should he/she have any trouble making the payment. A co-signer is basically a co-owner being registered on title and equally accountable for the payments although it is commonly known that individual will not make the payments. Co-signers are typically used when you need to support the income of the mortgage applicant. The co-signer will go through the typical application procedure which involves a credit check and disclosing all assets

Homeowners alerted to fire hazard burning at two parks regional parks. Open burning is allowed today for those eligible Central Okanagan property owners with permits from their local fire authority. Further controlled burns will likely be required to dispose of the fire hazard debris that’s being collected in those two projects and also underway on a 21-hectare section of Scenic Canyon Regional Park.

“I feel like Glenmore is a well-established, safe neighbourhood. It’s close to paths so it’s great for walking,” said Arlene. “It also has everything —grocery stores, doctor and dentist offices—you really don’t have to leave the neighbourhood if you don’t want to.” Winsome Hill’s close proximity to their son at UBCO and the airport were also a selling feature for George, who travels often for work. What the new homeowners weren’t expecting was the added benefit of the Built Green construction of their home. In fact, every home at Winsome Hill is certified as Built Green for achieving its Gold Level of certification, a feature that can save a homeowner roughly 30 per cent (and as much as 50 per cent) in annual utility bills compared to a code-built

home. Although George and Arlene didn’t know a great deal about Built Green before purchasing this home, they had purchased a new home previously and have already noticed differences. “In our first brand new home we could smell the off-gasses given off from the formaldehyde in the carpet and you could smell the paint fumes,” said George. “When we did our first walk through of this home, you couldn’t smell anything. There’s also a lot less dust. It feels a lot cleaner in this new home.” Visit the furnished “Master on the Main” display home at Winsome Hill for yourself at #19625 Boynton Place, Monday and Thursday, from 1 to 4 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 4 pm, or call 250-868-6680 to view by appointment.

January sales a smooth housing market 2014 start

SINGLE level living is especially attractive to empty nesters and those looking to downsize without compromising on space.

CONTRIBUTED

▼ WINSOME HILL

Home buyers enjoy single level living In the summer of 2013, local builder Mission Group announced the introduction of walk-out rancher style homes that would feature the master bedroom on the main level—a rare home design in Kelowna—to their Winsome Hill community. This unique floorplan provides homeowners a single-level living option with the ability to customize the lower level of the home, so it is a layout that is especially attractive to empty nesters and those looking to downsize without having to compromise on space. The homes offer 2,171 square-feet of living space

and feature three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The lower levels are not finished, so homeowners are able to customize their options and choose the floorplan that best suites their needs. This fall, Mission Group was happy to welcome their first homeowners to their new “Master on the Main” home, George and Arlene Berridge. “In the beginning we weren’t really looking at new homes because we weren’t sure new would be an option for us in Kelowna,” said Arlene. “But, we knew we wanted to get away from stairs, and we wanted to

CONTRIBUTED

GEORGE and Arlene Berridge say the strata living lifestyle with an absence of stairs and outdoor yard maintenance attracted them to what the Winsome Hill development had to offer. get away from gardening and taking care of lawns, so strata living really suits us.”

“In addition to not having to climb stairs, I also love having my master bedroom and laun-

dry on the main level, it’s exactly what I wanted,” continued Arlene. “The access to the front deck off the master bedroom is a nice feature too.” George and Arlene moved to Kelowna from Fort McMurray about a year ago and rented while they searched for a home of their own. Their retirement plan was to move to Kelowna, a decision that was made even easier when their son chose to attend university at UBC Okanagan. Being located in the Glenmore area was also a bonus to the couple. See Home B22

Optimism is the attitude for Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board members as January sales were up 30 per cent over the same month last year. “Moving into 2014, the housing market in the Okanagan-Shuswap continues to strengthen and maintain a steady upward trend despite sales levels beginning at a cyclical low this time last year,” said Karen Singbeil, OMREB president and a Shuswap area realtor. “All three zones in our board area have seen moderate to strong gains in sales for various property types during relatively slow economic growth and lagging consumer confidence throughout B.C.” Total active listings continue to trend downward and inventories have declined more than 10% year-overyear for five consecutive months. While slowly moving towards more balanced market conditions, OMREB remains in buyer’s territory which can prove challenging for sellers and buyers alike.   “Proper pricing is still critical in our market and is the key to successful home sales,” Singbeil pointed out.  “Savvy home sellers who are competitive and market conscious are sharpening their pencils when setting a list price, resulting in more transaction volumes in some zones. This is most evident in the North Okanagan where the jump in home sales was the most significant during the past month.” In other areas, some potential sellers are holding off listing their properties or have pulled out of the market if they are not willing to set a competitive price, and this has contributed to the decline in inventory. “It is important to look at prices within property types and sale price trends within different price points in order to fully understand the overall picture of the current residential market in our Board area,” Singbeil said. “OMREB’s three market areas are diverse so sales activity tends to vary among property types zone-byzone and month-by-month with ups and downs at different times and locations.” The weak economy may constrain consumer demand in the beginning of the year but should increase as the BC economy gains momentum during the second half of 2014. Long-term interest rates have trended much lower than was expected to start the year and should be very accommodating to buying activity heading into the spring market. Home sales through OMREB are forecast to rise 1.8% this year.  The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board is comprised of 1,020 realtor members and 92 real estate offices across B.C.’s Southern Interior of BC, covering an area from Peachland to Revelstoke.
