Balcony sprinkler concept adopted Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

All the suites in The Legacy, a Rutland condominium building devastated by a balcony fire, will soon have sprinklers covering their decks. Last summer, Kelowna’s fire chief, Jeff Carlisle, made a public plea to the owners of the stratified property, and all existing strata properties considering rebuilds or renovations, to retrofit the building with sprinklers over each balcony on the outside of the structure, particularly if home barbecues are permitted under the strata corporation’s bylaws. “It makes sense when you see the devastation caused by these kind of fires,” said Carlisle in an interview this week. In liaising with the condominium’s strata board members, the fire department has learned they took the chief up on his suggestion. New national regulations ensure all new wood-frame construction must include sprinklers on balconies. But in his report to council on the issue last September, Carlisle noted See Concept A13

Mayor is ready to retire from civic politics Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna’s mayor has made it official—he will not seek re-election in this November’s civic election. Gray made the announcement late Tuesday, ending months of speculation about his political future. “As a courtesy to any others who may wish to seek the position, it is important that I make my intentions known at this time,” he said.

Central Okanagan protected from measles outbreak

Kathy Michaels

STAFF REPORTER

A measles outbreak in the Fraser Valley has not made a shift into the Okanagan, health officials say. “There are no reported cases in the Interior,” said Interior Health medical officer Dr. Trevor Corneil, adding that measles haven’t been reported in the region since 2011. The most effective guard against disease spreading is the vaccination rate in Kelowna, which sits at 90 per cent.

A 95 per cent vaccination rate is considered ideal for attaining community immunity, but Corneil said the current level provides sufficient protection should a measles case come through town. “One of the problems with the outbreak is that there are pockets of people who don’t immunize and as a result (the measles) is spreading like wildfire,” he said, adding that a droplet of bodily fluid is all it takes for the disease to spread. Despite the fact it’s highly contagious, health officials had all but

eradicated measles from Canada until it made a resurgence in communities where there is a low vaccination rate. In the East Fraser Valley region, where the current outbreak started, around 100 suspected cases were reported from a religious school where vaccinations are discouraged. The Fraser Health Authority announced just days later that measles had spread to the general populations of Chilliwack and Agassiz, which has a vaccination rate somewhere in the area of 60 to 70 per cent. Although some have religious

reasons for vaccine avoidance, the Health Authority has also encountered others who have fears that vaccines have medical side effects they’d like to avoid. “That’s always a concern. We spend a significant amount of time and effort locally and internationally trying to dispel untruths,” said Corneil. “If someone is concerned, a public health nurse can help sort that out.” Vaccines are always available to those who need or want them, he said, and getting the measles jab ensures that the virus can’t do its worst.

Symptoms of measles include a high fever, cough, runny nose, drowsiness, irritability and red and inflamed eyes. Small white spots may appear in the mouth and throat. A red blotchy rash begins to appear on the face three to seven days after the start of symptoms, then spreads down the body to the arms and legs. This rash usually lasts four to seven days. “Any of these symptoms could be measles,” he said. “If you have them, call a family doctor or the walk-in clinic.”

Critically acclaimed poet addresses Air India tragedy

The tragedy of Air India Flight 182 and its aftermath has left much unresolved grief for the families of the victims. All 329 passengers— including 280 Canadians—died in the 1985 terrorist attack and then a bungled 20-year investigation resulted in the acquittal of the accused. One of the people struggling to make sense of it all is Vancouver-based poet Renée Sarojini Saklikar, who lost her aunt and uncle on the doomed flight. Saklikar has recently written a long form docupoem about the 82 children who perished in the bombing, called the Children of Air India. It’s a powerful and haunting work about the nature of personal loss in the midst of public trauma

written in a lyrical poetic style called elegiac sequences. The work also references imagined details about the lives of the Air India dead, and ultimately acts as a tribute to them. On March 27, Saklikar will come to Okanagan College where she will read from Children of Air India and participate in a discussion about the work and process she used to create it. “I did not intend to write about this subject— too painful, too controversial. But, it called to me,” said Saklikar. “Once I accepted the call, I spent hours inside the archive with incident and coroner’s reports, books, newspaper articles, legal proceedings, inquiry reports, and family letters. “That’s when the

voices of the dead rose up—one either runs away or responds.” A lawyer by training and married to B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix, Saklikar turned to writing and poetry later in life and currently writes thecanadaproject blog, a life-long poem chronicle about her life and all the places she’s lived in from India to Canada. Children of Air India is Saklikar’s first book and it has been shortlisted for the 2014 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. Event organizer and Okanagan College English professor Sean Johnston is thrilled to have Saklikar participate in a reading at the college. “We were lucky to have an excerpt from Children of Air India appear in the English depart-

▼ FATAL ACCIDENT

WorkSafe still investigating dump truck accident in East Kelowna

The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of the male who died in an industrial accident Monday afternoon in Kelowna.

Dejan Rasovic, 40, was fatally injured shortly after 1 p.m. while working on a dump truck at his residence, 3985 Fairwinds Court, in East Kelowna.

WorkSafeBC continues to investigate the accident. Kelowna RCMP Cont. Kris Clark said Monday the accident

wasn’t a criminal matter at that stage so the police were not involved. The death of Rasovic sent shock waves through the community, particu-

larly for the Saint Elijah Serbian Orthodox Missionary Parish on Gerstmar Road. The married father of three was a leader at the

church, having moved here more than a decade ago from Vancouver. Dan Jovanovich, a church member, described Rasovic to local

media outlets this week as a tireless worker both for his church and for his community, and a great role model for his kids and those at the parish.

STAFF REPORTER

A Kelowna man with a dubious driving history took the adage “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” a bit too much to heart. The 56-year-old pleaded guilty to prohibited driving Wednesday morning, and was sentenced to a one-year driving prohibition.

After being sentenced, he allegedly left the courthouse, hopped in his car and drove away, much to the chagrin to police who pulled him over.  “The man’s vehicle had been seen in the courthouse parking lot earlier that day and a member of the RCMP Integrated Road Safety Unit watched as the man got into his Ford pickup and proceeded to drive away

despite his sentencing just minutes before,” said Const. Kris Clark. “The officer conducted a traffic stop less than a block away on Water Street at Doyle Avenue where it was also determined that his vehicle was uninsured.” The man’s vehicle was impounded and he was fined $598 for having no insurance under the Motor Vehicle Act.

The man faces a potential charge of driving while prohibited and was released on an appearance notice for court on May 29, 2014. Clark said traffic safety is a priority in our community and one which the Kelowna RCMP takes very seriously. The RCMP Integrated Road Safety Unit works closely with the Central Okanagan Traffic Servi-

ces specifically targeting: • aggressive driving behaviours (including distracted driving which is quickly becoming one of the main factors in injury crashes) • impaired driving • seat belt compliance • commercial vehicle safety. kmichaels @kelownacapnews.com

NEWS ▼ CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN

Expansion plans granted yet another extension Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Crystal Mountain Resort has been granted yet another extension for a rezoning application that would allow for expansion. According to Bruce Smith, communications officer with the Regional District of the Central Okanagan, the board has approved the extensions because “it recognizes the challenges over the past four years with the international financial and investment community.” “The applicant continues to express confidence and optimism about the project and is continuing efforts to find financing and partners to move the application forward,” said Smith. In a letter from Oberto Oberti, president of Pheidias Development Management Corporation—the agent working on behalf of Crystal Mountain—to RDCO planning manager Ron Fralick, Oberti said inter-

national investment “seems to be at the doorstep of the project.” “I had the good fortune of being able to be part of the provincial B.C. delegation to China at the end of November…it looks like provincial staff is making progress introducing both Chinese institutional investment groups and immigrant investors,” wrote Oberti. “I feel that with the assistance of provincial staff our collective efforts should bear fruit.” Plans for Crystal Mountain expansion are not new. The zoning amendment bylaw received first reading by the regional board March 17, 2008. Before that, the resort had a master development agreement approved by the province. In 2012, a Swissbased investment group— Agentura—visited the ski hill and indicated a desire to potentially finance its much-anticipated expansion; however, that interest has seemed to fiz-

zle out. Smith said the decision to grant the eighth extension was unanimous among the regional board members. ••• The BC Safety Authority is still at Crystal Mountain Resort, conducting their investigation into what caused a chairlift to malfunction and send three chairs plummeting to the ground March 1. “It’s quite in-depth. They’re taking their time to make sure everything is done properly and all the appropriate tests are done,” said Newcomb. He said the investigation involves both on- and off-site testing. “I know they’re deconstructing parts of the equipment and having engineers do in-depth analysis. “We’ve been able to get the chair lift to an operational state, and have been conducting dynamic tests in order to perform further analysis of the installation.”

Newcomb said part of the reason the investigation is taking some time is due to the rarity and ser-

iousness of the situation. “We want to make sure that we’re looking at any possible contribut-

ing factor to reach an outcome of mitigating a risk of reoccurrence anywhere else.”

Students launch peer-to-peer network Students at UBC Okanagan now have a safe and confidential space to speak with a peer about any challenges, struggles, or personal hardships they face. The Peer Support Network (PSN) is a student volunteer-led initiative. Coordinator and founder Alexa Geddes says the PSN mandate is to ensure that no student feels alone. The network also serves as a resource centre, increasing awareness of mental health and wellness within both the campus and greater community. “I am very passionate about the Peer Support Network,” said Ged-

des, a fourth-year honours bachelor of science student in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences. “Through my current role as a student researcher with the VOICE project (a campus-wide initiative focused on health-promoting campus change) and my past position as a residence advisor, I realized the need for more mental health services on campus, especially at a student level. “And as a result of my own mental health challenges I wanted to develop a program so other students do not have to struggle alone.” The PSN offers a drop-in space from 7 to

Library will host two anti-bullying workshops The Kelowna and Mission branches of the Okanagan Regional Library will host two upcoming workshops organized by ED-ucation Publishing on the topic of bullying. The first workshop, Kids Become Superheroes to End Bullying (ages 5 to 18), takes place April 1 at the Mission library, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. The second workshop, How Adults can Be Prepared to Deal with Bullying on April 2 at the Kelowna library, 6 to 7 p.m. Jeff Hoffart, teacher and co-author of Robbie and the Bully-bot, shares his experiences with bullying, strategies that parents and teachers can help children develop, the importance of role models, ways to approach digital citizenship and online safety, and ensures participants leave with resources and a plan of action to feel confident with how kids can face bullying, both online and in person. ED-ucation Publishing, a social enterprise that focuses on key values like innovative learning, problem solving, student empowerment and citizenship, has just announced the release of a 10-book series that focuses on character education. The first eBook, titled Robbie and the Bully-bot, will be available for free on Amazon for 72 hours, beginning on April 1. The print books will be available three days to a week after each additional eBook is released. For more information about the worshops, see www.ed-ucation.ca or www.orl.bc.ca.

9 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the Upper Level Collegium (UNC 335), third floor of the UNC building, across from the Health and Wellness Centre. Students can also reach out to the PSN through email ubco.psn@ gmail.com, Facebook, or Twitter. The PSN is a paraprofessional service, which means volunteers will not diagnose or treat mental illness. Instead, they provide welcoming, confiden-

tial, and empathetic peerbased support using active listening and resource referral. The Peer Support Network is supported by the University of British Columbia Student Union Okanagan. It is operated by an advisory committee made up of UBC staff, faculty and more than a dozen student volunteers. The Canadian Mental Health Association in Kelowna is also assisting with the project, providing training for all of the volunteers.

Kelowna city council wants to be a little less restrictive when it comes to where medical marijuana can be grown in the city. Heading into Tues-

case basis. The public hearing attracted about 50 people, including the owner of a new federal growing licence from Whistler. His licence is one of just five in B.C. The others are on Vancouver Island, inMaple Ridge and one somewhere in the Okanagan, believed to be in the Osoyoos area. Following the public hearing, council approved the proposed bylaw, which would allow medical marijuana to be produced in properly licenced indoor facilities on land in the I-2, I-3 and I-4 zones and asked staff to prepare an amendment to the I-1 zone.

duction of medical marijuana in Canada, banning its production by licenced home-growing operations. Now it can only be produced in commercial facilities licensed by Health Canada that comply with local zoning rules. In addition to preparing a new bylaw for the I-1 zone, city staff were also asked to report back to council about allowing production on agricultural land, something council has been against in the past. While the B.C. Agricultural Land Commission has said growing medical marijuana on agricultural land in this

province would be acceptable, several municipalities, including Kelowna and West Kelowna, were against allowing that. But after the public hearing, Kelowna council felt the initial bylaw was too restrictive. In a 5-2 vote, it defeated the part of the proposed bylaw that excluded use of agricultural land. While the city does not have the final say on whether a licence will be issued for a commercial medical marijuana growing operation here, the federal government has said that any operations must meet municipal zoning regulations. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Assistance of technicians will let pharmacists focus on patient care

A

bout a month ago I had to attend an accreditation meeting where I had to explain to national accreditation representatives how Okanagan College would handle the admission, registration and graduation of students in our Pharmacists Technician certificate program. This meeting and their review led to a re-certification of this program at Okanagan College starting in April. So what is accreditation and why is this so important? A program that is accredited means that it meets a standard required by the body that regulates the profession. For the Pharmacy Technician program, this means that Okanagan College’s program meets the curriculum requirements and other standards to ensure our graduates can write the exams required to be a pharmacy

I-1 zoned land is often located closer to residential areas than the other three zones and allows for multi-tenant use of a building. City staff said the issue will be compatibility of use with other tenants. The moves were made after council was shown that there are facilities, built to the new federal standards that were already operating under the old system on I-1 land near residential areas and were not a problem. In fact, their existence was not known by the surrounding neighbourhood. The federal government has changed the rules regarding the pro-

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens technician. Usually these bodies are ensuring we have the right course content and learning objectives, grading policies, instructors with the appropriate credentials to teach, and other mechanisms in place to allow students to complete the program with the competencies necessary to work as a pharmacy technician. Nursing has similar accreditation bodies—students who graduate from our Practical Nursing program must write the Canadian Practical Nurses Registration Exam if they want to work in that professional capacity.

In B.C., work for pharmacy technicians is expanding as the College of Pharmacists of BC (CPBC) are looking at creating this new healthcare professional designation. Although pharmacist technicians have been around for a while, the CPBC is looking to formalize this profession (this is where the accreditation comes in). By doing this, they will have the ability to expand the scope of this work where the technician will assume more responsibilities. This will then allow pharmacists to focus on patient care, in other words having more time to talk to people about their medicine and what they need to know about it. The CPBC is hoping that regulating pharmacist technicians through training and accreditation will allow these workers to perform a number

of tasks currently done by pharmacists - mainly, filling a prescription with a final check by the pharmacist. Most people I meet who are interested in working in health care seem to focus on nursing. But there are many other medical professionals that work inside and outside of hospitals such as pharmacist technicians. The pharmacy technician program is a good option for students interested in health care and looking at short-term certificate programs. Work in this field is expected to grow as a number of pharmacies will begin to employ technicians to provide better service to their customers. Anyone interested in this program should visit our website at www.okanagan.bc.ca/pharmacy. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

Recipe for creating happy meal atmosphere at supper time Kristi Estergaard CONTRIBUTOR

Let’s face it. Eating with young children can be stressful, especially at dinner time. Even though I know the spilling, throwing food, picky eating, and crankiness are all normal, they are hard to face each evening. Knowing the many benefits that eating together offers my toddler— from learning more vocabulary to accepting new foods—gives me the push to continue making family dinners a priority in my home. Still, I recently asked myself how we can make our family mealtimes a happier time. And what a better time to be asking then during Nutrition Month. This year’s theme is Simply Cook and Enjoy. You may be wondering is the ‘enjoy’ part even

Kristi Estergaard possible when eating with young children? The answer is yes. Over the past month I began carefully practicing what I preach. The following tips really are key. Ensure the focus for eating together is simply to enjoy each other’s company. So much stress is lifted when I let go of being concerned about how much or what my son will eat. Plan for early dinners. On work nights if din-

ner is running late I find it helpful to offer my son a light pre-dinner snack to prevent him from becoming over-hungry. Offer new foods along with familiar, loved foods. By doing this it helps my son feel comfortable at meal times. Don’t let food refusal get under your skin. Once the food is served I remove all emotional investment for the creation of the meal, and focus on my own eating, not my

toddler’s. It is OK if my son does not want to eat. Coaxing or bribing children to eat certain foods or amounts does not help, in fact it can cause children to eat less and take longer to accept new foods. Enjoy pleasant conversation. We keep the conversation light and involve our toddler. Interestingly, by doing this it has helped decrease the amount of food that is thrown!

Keep distractions at a minimum. At mealtimes we turn off the TV, cell phones, iPads, and put away toys (or hide them out of site, if needed). Expect a mess. We keep cloths handy to catch large spills and wait until the meal is over to pick up food that has been dropped on the floor. Creating happy meal times is well worth the effort. These changes have made a huge difference

for my family. Give them a try.

Invasive mussels found on U.S. boat The Okanagan Basin Water Board says Canadian customs officers in Osoyoos recently discovered what they think were zebra or quagga mussels on a boat being transported into Canada. According to the OBWB, on the evening of March 12, Canada Customs notified the B.C. Conservation Officer Service that one of its officers found what looked like zebra and/or quagga mussels on a large pleasure-craft being transported from the U.S., across the border into Canada.   Canadian Border Services Agency currently has no legislative authority to refuse entry, however, the commercial transporter was co-operative.  With only three conservation officers based in Penticton, CBSA called the province’s toll-free emergency response line.  Conservation officers were able to bring in a decontamination unit to decontaminate the vessel the following day. The boat, which originated from Texas, was headed to the Central Okanagan to be moored in Okanagan Lake. The Okanagan Basin Water Board has been urging the federal government to pass legislation, that is pending, that would allow border guards to stop and inspect watercraft and prohibit entry of contaminated vessels.  It has also been urging the province to follow-up on its legislation—introduced in December 2012—which makes it illegal to transport live or dead invasive mussels in B.C. and implement a B.C. inspection program that would help prevent the spread of these mussels and other invasive species.  Of concern to the Okanagan is the impact these mussels could have on our water quality, ecosystems and economy—estimated by the OBWB at $40 million a year to just manage.

Mayor changed with the times

I

n announcing his intention not to run in the November municipal election, Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray will achieve what so many politicians fail to do—understand when it is time to move on. Gray will leave behind a legacy of growth and prosperity since he first took up a seat at the council table in 1986. In the time since, he served two terms as a councillor, was elected mayor in 1996 and re-elected in 1999 and 2001. After losing a bitter campaign

battle to Sharon Shepherd in 2005, Gray returned for another stint as mayor, defeating Shepherd in another close race by 421 votes. Some thought then that Gray’s time had passed, why was he getting back into the local political fray at his age. But Gray has been the figurehead for a council that has followed in his shadow for the past three years, pushing a pro-business development agenda. But perhaps what is more interesting is the transformation that Gray has undergone in pub-

lic life these past years, perhaps most notably reflected in his stance to the city’s gay pride community. In the 1990s, Gray was denounced by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal after he insisted he should not be forced to sign a city proclamation for Lesbian and Gay pride—taking issues with the word “pride.” Fifteen years later, there was Gray signing a city proclamation declaring Aug. 12 to 19 Pride week in Kelowna, and participating in the celebration fes-

fi c f t o tivities. Aside from Gray’s own I personal beliefs, that change of a heart sent out a message that our a city was growing up, evolving ng from a conservative small town i

into an increasingly cultural and a ethnically diverse city. Gray says he will leave office o gratified that he and his coun- hf cil have made strides to embrace a the importance of diversity in a our community. Perhaps that ul- i timately will mean more to our i city than erecting another tall se building downtown or creating r another park. t

Still working to keep the Kelowna-Vernon rail link alive

A

s you know, the railway discontinuance process has been top of mind for many folks in the Okanagan. Two weeks ago, I received an early phone call from Kelly Brown, manager of Ashland Canada, to let me know that as of June this year their operations will be closed down. Kelly informed me that the decision made by the head office in Ohio to shut the Kelowna operations down was based on several factors, not just the future of the rail line. Likewise, the announcement of

the closure of Ashland Canada does not automatically mean the KPR line will not resume operations. Discussions are still ongoing between Ron CN and interested Cannan parties who have expressed an interest in reviving the KPR line. If an agreement is reached, then the operator will apply to the province for a charter to operate the rail line at which point CN is removed from the equation and the federal Canadian Transportation Act would no longer apply. Protecting the corridor for public

MP’S REPORT

access would become the responsibility of the provincial government. If there is no agreement, then CN will proceed with the discontinuance process. During this phase a number of government bodies will have an opportunity to express an interest in acquiring the line beginning with the federal government and First Nations, which will have 30 days to respond, followed by the province, then BC Transit due to the fact that the rail corridor is within the Kelowna CMA, and finally the City of Kelowna. From the outset there was always the possibility the line would not be economically feasible but there should be no doubt that our Okanagan

MPs and MLAs, and our mayors and municipal councils are well aware of how important an asset this rail line is.  Regardless of the negotiations with CN, many of us see an opportunity to find an alternative use for the rail line, including the creation of a spectacular Okanagan recreational corridor which would support not only healthy living but local tourism and the subsequent economic benefits that would be generated in the community. Vernon’s Brad Clements and others continue to work on this scenario and have managed to successfully raise funds in support of this initiative.  To check in on their progress you

can go to www.okanaganrailtrail. com. The perfect outcome remains a multi-modal pedestrian/cyclingfriendly corridor as well as an active rail line and I want to thank everyone in the community who has put in time, effort and funding to work toward a positive outcome. As noted before, the Kelowna-Vernon line served us well for nearly 80 years and we have an opportunity to make sure it continues to do so. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country. ron@cannan.ca

▼ UKRAINE

Russia plays out political game its own way To the editor: Why has it been so difficult for the human species to achieve peace and freedom? Could it just be that almost every nation on this planet, excluding Iceland, has mostly managed to bring into power arrogant, self- centered narcissists whose most gifted personality trait is in compulsive lying? Could the problem also lie within the citizens of those countries who have a constant craving for authority, are incapable of critical thinking, and have a need for being lied to rather than being told the truth? Is it possible that the citizens of every nation actually represent a mirror image of their leader, and it is the citizens who should be held responsible for bringing a dictator to power and keeping him there? The technological advances should have made the human animal more intelligent, but instead, it looks like it has made it more irrational, sadistic and mechanical.

The situation in Ukraine is like a nightmare that never seems to be ending. We have so many global conflicts going on today, that maybe this time around, if a thermonuclear war erupts as a result of this conflict, people just might finally start paying attention. And, as always, the US has to be the major player on the centre stage, babbling to the rest of the world that their interference is necessary and is being done in the name of democracy. Those democracy loving Americans, what would the world do without them? We would all be without freedom and democracy if it was not for the American heroes saving the world. The world has witnessed what the US democracy has managed to do to countries such as Afghanistan and Libya, the little social order that these countries had prior to the invasion they managed to destroy. And I won’t even get into the illegal drone attacks which

the US carries out against these nations including Pakistan, of course, all being done in the name of democracy. A nation under the rule of plutocracy will never be able to introduce democracy successfully through forceful occupations. Therefore it does not make sense that the US and other NATO countries would even try to attempt introducing democracy to less fortunate nations when in fact they don’t even know what democracy means in the first place; unless democracy is used as a smoke screen in their endeavours. There is one thing the US seems to not realize this time around and that is that Russia will most likely play this game a lot differently than how Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya did. The mainstream media has been censoring important information, as always, but then that is what is expected to happen when nations are ruled by plutocracy. The

media avoided to mention that the American bully was the one who instigated the conflict in Ukraine, and spent $5 billion of its money doing so. Victoria Nuland, the assistant secretary of state for European affairs, was recently caught on tape discussing with the UK ambassador, Geoffrey Pyatt, about bringing a change in the Ukraine regime and getting Yatsenyuk to replace Yanukovych. Furthermore, in order to destabilize the regime in Ukraine the western powers created a division among the people, which always works like magic, and inserted, like a virus, the extreme right wing Svoboda party neo-Nazis on the centre stage in Kiev; the neo-Nazis group is the one responsible for killing both the protesters as well as the police officers. This is an obvious Western-backed coup, so hopefully the people in Ukraine will see through the screen and will demand western countries

back off before this conflict escalates into something more serious. The media needs to stop betraying democracy and it must start including all information in its reporting. Censorship of information will give rise to a fascist regime, and if people won’t demand changes in how information is being shared then we are heading towards a not so friendly future. Furthermore, nations need to start taking responsibility for their own mess instead of relying on outside forces that always make an already bad situation worse. If the Ukrainians choose to accept so-called aid from western economic hitmen, then they will be voluntarily giving up everything of real value in their country, and that also includes oil; austerity measures for most will definitely follow and riches for the few.

$ 98 ▼ ONE METER PER STRATA

Stratas get bad deal from Kelowna for water To the editor: I live in a strata. Bare land strata were initially within the multi-family classification for water rates because they were considered equivalent to other multifamily complexes. The city is interested in only one meter per strata complex; but as the strata installed and owns the roads, the water lines, fire hydrants there are no expenses for the city tax payer. There are 16 bare land strata customers with 985 homes; in total they are 2.9 per cent of the water services in the City of Kelowna. So why the focus on strata water? The City bemoans the idea that we have only one meter, but that was the city’s choice. Shaw Cable, For-

tisBC gas and electricity have no problems with individual meters on every house. (PS: the table the American company [The FCS Group, Redmond, Washington] displays in Appendix B page 28, for strata monthly bills is incorrect.) City water must think they made a mistake with strata water and now wish to even the score and city council fails to fully read the 45 page report: Kelowna water says: “Water hogs in strata complexes should feel some pressure from their neighbours this summer to quit their wasting ways…you hear some stories from stratas where some lawns are just like swamps.” The city gave our strata a plaque for conserving water—go figure.

Kelowna water later writes “…some customer classes are not paying their full share for the amount of water they use. Bare land stratas—particularly the ‘walled cities’…should be prepared for rate adjustments…” I think there are people at city hall who don’t like strata complexes. City water makes all the rules and strata complexes continue to be in the penalty box. City water is a bonus for parks and agriculture. If water is so precious, having a fair and equal water rate would be cheaper for all. The challenge: What if our strata offers to sell all our water lines, fire hydrants and sewer lines to the City of Kelowna for $1. The city can then put

in individual meters send individual monthly bills and treat us just like any other customer. Everything has been built and inspected according to the city building code. A deal

Paul Hergott pas. No, we were simply following through with one of the most important rules of negotiation—be prepared to walk away. The Mexican vendor whose store we were walking out of was exercising an interesting ne-

gotiation strategy we had not encountered before in Mexico—insult. Her “best price” for the dress our daughter, Cassidy, wanted had gone down considerably from the time we first entered the store.  The sales lady had reached a price that was the lowest the owner would allow her to go, or so she said, another negotiation tactic. The same negotiating tactics come up when you try to negotiate your personal injury claim with ICBC, although the in-

sults are more subtle. The adjuster is never the decision-maker. The adjuster leads you to believe that she/he is doing their best to get you the highest settlement offer but their hands are tied by a manager. The adjuster also uses the “walk away” in the sense that the offer authorized by the manager is a “take it or leave it” number.  Once they reach that number, which might take several negotiation steps, they won’t budge from it.  You can threaten all you like how you will hire a lawyer to pursue your claim properly, but it will have no effect. For the least severe of injuries—those taking

no more than two to three months to 100%, completely resolved with zero ongoing symptoms—the offer might be a fair one.  Once it becomes clear that your symptoms might never resolve, fairness requires a settlement in a completely different ballpark.  Your adjuster won’t budge, instead resorting to those “subtle” insults I referred to, like saying: “There is nothing objectively wrong with you” or “Your injuries should be healed by now.” It is implying either that you are lying about your ongoing pain or that it is somehow your fault that you have been left with a lifetime of pain because some distracted

driver smashed into you. Your walk away is to go the next step of hiring a lawyer. Once a lawyer is retained and the lawsuit commenced, your claim is automatically transferred to a different adjuster who has a different manager.   It’s like walking from one Mexican store to another. Only this time, the salesperson is able to negotiate fairly. This time the adjuster knows that your walk away is a walk into a courtroom. The closer you get to those courthouse steps, the more fair the offers become until, in most cases, a settlement is finally reached. That settlement is regularly several times

whatever the maximum the first adjuster was able to offer you. In our Mexico shopping scenario, Cassidy ended up getting her dress and it looks beautiful on her. The negotiation was a poor one, though. Her helpful little sister, Morgan, was scouring the displays in store after store, looking for an identical one to the one we walked away from.  When she found it, she squealed out in excitement: “That’s it, that’s the one we’ve been looking for!” Hearing that, the salesperson must have done a little dance on her way to “negotiate” with us.   Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna. paul@hlaw.ca

Mayor praises the effectiveness of council to get things done Mayor from A1 And he told them he felt only one should run for mayor as Gray feels it would be a loss for the city with one or both of them not on council. He did not say which one should run. Both Given and Basran had said they would not run for mayor if Gray decided to seek re-election. Seats are expected to open up among the incumbents as long-time councillor Robert Hobson has indicted he is leaning heavily toward not running again. Other councillors have not made up their mind about re-election. Coun. Luke Stack, had indicated he may run for mayor, but has since decided against the move. In the past, Gray has praised all eight councillors, calling them a “dream team” for the city. On Wednesday, he said they all bought into his vision following the 2011 election and have worked hard over the last 2 1/2 years. “Everyone bought in, we didn’t have to fight over philosophies,” he said. “We could all just work to get things done.” Gray said his decision came down to wanting to

spend more time with his family. “I’ve been giving it some thought for a long time and I have said before I didn’t want to stay here and die in office,” said the 73-year-old Gray. A mayor who has been, at times, very popular and at others times very controversial, Gray said the upcoming change to four-year terms from the current three years for civic politicians in B.C. did not play a part in his decision. But, he said, it did in the early 1990s when he decided not to run for re-election as a councillor. Back then, the terms were changed to three years from two. This time around, Gray said he simply feels that the time has come to hand off the responsibility to someone new so he can spend more time with his family. Gray has 12 grandchildren, nine of whom live in Kelowna. And he said he wants to travel more with wife Doreen. “We have been to a lot of places but this is a big planet,” said Gray. He was also quick to point out there is still work to be done during the remainder of council’s current term. Over for the next eight months, he said, council

will have plenty on their plate and will leave several large projects in place for the next council—projects like the planned Interior Health office building downtown, expansion of the existing library parkade and construction of a new downtown parkade for the IH building and development of a new 24-storey downtown hotel. When he ran for mayor in 2011 after his sixyear hiatus from the job,

‘‘

EVERYONE BOUGHT IN, WE DIDN’T HAVE TO FIGHT OVER PHILOSOPHIES. WE COULD ALL JUST WORK TO GET THINGS DONE. Walter Gray Kelowna Mayor

of the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen

Thank you

Gray vowed to “open Kelowna for business.” He said that has been achieved, even if it is more of a perception than an actual change from what was happening prior to 2011. Still, he feels the city is in better shape now than 2 1/2 years ago. He points to the increased growth at the city’s airport, as an example. He said other highlights of his time in the mayor’s office—both

from 1996 to 2005 and since 2011—include pushing for a second crossing of Okanagan Lake that resulted in the replacement of the aging Okanagan Lake Floating Bridge with the new, wider William R. Bennett Bridge. One of his regrets is not getting a long-sought sobering station established in the city to help people with drug and alcohol addictions. He said while it has been put on

the city’s priority list, it requires support and participation by Interior Health and that has not been forthcoming. As for the people who may succeed him as mayor, another name constantly mentioned is Sharon Shepherd. Shepherd told the Capital News she has been asked constantly of late about it, but has not yet made a decision to run for mayor again or not. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Fire chief pushed for balcony sprinklers Concept from A1 there are 491 existing wood-frame walk-ups in the City of Kelowna built before the regulation was established. The Legacy caught fire late afternoon on a Tuesday in July 2013, after a fire in a barbecue got out of control. The flames scaled three floors of the building and rocketed through the roof of the structure in minutes, razing the building and putting homeowners and renters in 62 units out on the street for the next year. “We’ve committed to move homeowners in September,” said Corey Makus, MGC president, the construction company handling the renovations and rebuild necessary to make the building viable. MGC has redone all of the vinyl siding on the building, stripped the fourth floor remnants, framed and reconstructed that floor and roof. It’s their third such renovation and rebuild due to fire; they also handled work on the Barber Terrace fire, on Barber Road, and Fairview of Mission, on Lequime Road. Both took nearly double the time to reconstruct. Makus credits the municipality and insurance company for narrowing the window on the Legacy fire. The City of Kelowna’s building department was able to expedite building permits and the insurance company streamlined the process to ensure residents would be home as soon as possible. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Snowboarder L shares dramatic n brain injury story

NEWS

C

BrainTrust Canada wants to raise awareness about brain injuries by showing the documentary The Crash Reel—the story of former U.S. Olympic snowboarder Kevin Pearce. The Crash Reel tells the story of Pearce, at the height of his game prior to 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and a rival of fellow U.S. snowboarder Shaun White for a gold medal in the men’s halfpipe event. All that hope, however, was dashed when Pearce suffered a traumatic brain injury that left him in a coma for weeks and changed his life forever. The documentary shares the intimate moments with his family, and his journey through rehabilitation to the current day. While Pearce can never compete in snowboarding again, he remains connected to his sport and is a strong advocate to bring awareness to the seriousness of brain injury. “Kevin is a great example of the invisible epidemic of brain injury,” said Magda Kapp, director of communications for BrainTrust Canada. “This refers to the fact that the long term effects of brain injury cannot always be seen—they are cognitive in nature and show up as issues such as impaired judgment, impulsivity and limited short term memory. Brain injury can happen in an instant and last a lifetime.” “Concussion is brain injury, and it is important to seek medical attention if a concussion is suspected—especially for youth where symptoms can be more subtle.  “Typical symptoms include headaches, nausea, difficulty with balance, sensitivity to light or noise, feeling sluggish, confused or foggy, lack of concentration and problems with memory. It takes a minimum of eight days for your brain to recover if there is no permanent damage, and return to activity must be medically supervised and very gradual.” The Crash Reel is presented by sponsor BMO, and tickets are $12, and available at all BMO branches in Kelowna, or through braintrustcanada.com or smartticket.ca. The film will be shown Thursday, March 27, 6:30 p.m., at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Kelowna Olympic ski silver medallist Kelsey Serwa will be a special guest at the event, there to share her highlights from the recent Sochi Olympics. Following the documentary presentation, Serwa will be available to sign autographs in the theatre lobby.

Local author shortlisted for national writing contest Kelowna-based author and Okanagan College English professor Alix Hawley has been named one of the top five finalists in the Canada Writes —2014 CBC Short Story Prize. Her short story, Jumbo, is about the love a young girl has for an elephant at the zoo, and was inspired by a 19th-century photograph Hawley came across when she was working on her PhD in English Literature in England.  “There was little girl in the photo and she was staring straight into the camera with such a sharp expression on her face,” recalled Hawley. “She became the central figure of Jumbo and around her the story explores the hugeness of love and the difficulty children have dealing with emotion.”

Alix Hawley This recognition marks the second time Hawley has been a finalist in the Canada Writes Short Story competition. She was in the top five in 2012 for her satirical story, Tentcity, about lost love during the 2003 Okanagan fire. Most recently, she won CBC’s Canada Writes BloodLines short-story writing contest in December 2013 for Pig (for Oma).  Hawley is humbled by

Starts thur

all the attention her work is getting. “I am grateful, delighted and surprised,” she said. “It’s nice, if a little disconcerting, to think that more people might be reading my work. It’s especially nice that short fiction is getting attention as well, because it’s a genre I love.” There were 3,200 stories from across the country submitted in this year’s Canada Writes Short Story competition. The winner will be announced March 24. In addition to a cash prize of $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts, the winner will receive a two-week residence at The Banff Centre and have their story published in enRoute magazine.

Park volunteers wanted If you like being outdoors, regularly visit regional parks and enjoy people, the Regional District of Central Okanagan hopes to hear from you. This spring, the parks services department will launch a Volunteers In Parks program, with volunteers sought to become Trail Patrollers. A public information meeting about the parks program will be held Wednesday, April 2, 7 p.m., at the EECO building in Mission Creek Regional Park. “The program encourages community involvement in our extensive regional park system with the goal of helping our staff maintain trails

and facilities in order to provide the best experience for all park visitors,” said RDCO spokesperson Bruce Smith. “It’s a great opportunity for those people who like to get out and explore our regional parks, learn about the local environment and meet other interesting people.” Parks department community relations liaison Risti Lesperance added: “Our VIP Trail Patrollers will be additional eyes and ears in our Regional Parks. “While their main function will be to record and report any problems for our regional parks staff to follow up on, they’ll also act at park ambassa-

dors, providing information to visitors about the natural and cultural features of the park and if needed politely remind visitors about park regulations.”  Lesperance said volunteer applicants can submit registration forms after the April 2 meeting. “VIP Trail Patrollers who must be at least 19 years of age and willing to commit to visit a park at least once a week. We’ll provide them with training, identification and other materials they need to help our staff keep our park trails in tip top shape.   For more information, see the website www. regionaldistrict.com/ parksVIP.

Naturalists welcome biologist A former park naturalist and scientist for Parks Canada will be the guest speaker at the next Central Okanagan Naturalists Club meeting. It will take place April 8, 7 p.m., at the Evangel Church on Gordon Drive in Kelowna. The guest speaker John Woods calls his presentation, The Sounds of Spring. Through a combination of photo-

graphs and sound recordings, the biologist will share his enthusiasm for natural sounds during his favourite time of the year. Featuring birds, Woods will discuss the challenges of learning to identify natural sounds and the exciting advances in both making sound recordings and the computer-assisted visualization of sound.

The Darcys look forward to Juno decision Follow ▼ PREVIEWS

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Juno Awards committee really reached outside the box when it included The Darcys on the nomination list this year, according to the band’s drummer, Wes Marksell, who quickly adds “it was a good album.” Nominated for Warring, their third release as a four-member group, the record has also put them on the Arts & Crafts label tour, Fieldtrip, coming to Kelowna next month. A Juno for Alternative Album of the Year would be the icing on the cake if they win on March 30th. “It is a bit of a legitimizer, even though we put out three albums in a year and a half,” said Marksell. It’s also more than a bit of a sales boost. The day after the nomination was released, albums were flying out the door. “I’ve been wrestling with how I feel about it… It’s a very tight-knit group of people who tend to secure the nominations,” Marksell said. Like most award shows of late, criticism of the selection process has been in the headlines with artists frequent-

Marksell jumps into the topic of his own volition, noting with a facetious jab that Arcade Fire has 3000 nominations whereas Born Ruffians, nominated as breakthrough group of the year, have been working away in the indie music scene for over a decade. “We’ve been a band since high school, almost

11 years—it’s been a long time. So break through after that long is less of a ‘breakthrough’ and more like softly pawing at the wall,” that band’s bassist, Mitch Derosier, joked in interview with CTV after learning of the honour. A former judge has also launched a petition against one band’s nomination, saying The Flatliners are not metal enough

for their category, Metal/ Hard Music Album of the Year. All of this said, given that they’re not floating around on yachts everyday, Marksell is perfectly game to admit the group is grateful for the recognition—and from the sounds of things, controversy is their bailiwick anyway. Marksell learned to

play the drums after effectively conning his way into the percussion section of his Grade 6 band class. Sometime late in the Grade 5 school year, he wrangled one of the coveted seats for the following year by claiming he could already play. “When I showed up, it was quite evident I had never played drums in my life,” said Marksell. The

teacher didn’t care. He let him work his way out of the predicament by learning and set in motion a lifelong passion for music in the youngster. The story has been on Marksell’s mind because of another outside-thebox moment the band is sharing. This winter, they gave several free concerts in Toronto-area schools, in part to develop their young fan base and in part to protest cuts to public school music funding . Faced with a $30-million deficit the Toronto school board threatened to cut music teachers, and programs, last spring. “We want to inspire our fans to hold their school boards accountable to maintaining and developing music programs,” Marksell wrote in a statement on their website. The Darcys are part of a tour of rotating slots in which different bands jump in at different points along the way. The Darcys will join Reuben And The Dark and No on April 3 at Habitat; tickets are on sale via arts-crafts.ca.. Twitter: @jaswrites

ivergent is the latest best-selling young adult novel to be turned into a movie with the hopes for it to become a success like Twilight or The Hunger Games.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis

And while critics and pundits are saying that it may fall short of the success of those two, they agree that it will do better than recent attempts like Vampire Academy, The Mortal Instruments and The Host. Divergent is set in a futuristic Chicago, where people are divided into five distinct factions based on their personalities. After the movie’s protagonist, Tris Prior learns she is Divergent, meaning that she does not fit in to any one group, she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader to destroy all Divergent, Tris must team up with another to find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.

Rockets will not sell underdog Americans short Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

On paper, there is no bigger mismatch in the opening round of the Western Hockey League playoffs. The Kelowna Rockets, the CHL’s No. 1 team, finished 50 points clear of their first-round opponents, the Tri-City Americans, during the regular season. Factor in a four-game sweep by the Rockets over the Ams during the regular campaign—by a combined score of 20-5— and the odds are undeniably stacked against TriCity. Still, Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton has watched too many WHL playoff series over the last two decades to make any assumptions before the puck is even dropped. With 18-year-old standout Eric Comrie protecting the Americans’ net, Hamilton said classifying the Americans as a pushover would be a sizable mistake. “They have arguably the best goalie in the league,” Hamilton said of Comrie. “In playoffs, goaltending wins and that’s going to be the difference here. We’ve got to get some traffic in front of him and get pucks behind him. They’re the kind of team that the longer they hang around, the bigger the problem. We’ve got

to play hard and physical, and make it difficult for him to see shots.” Comrie played just once against the Rockets during the regular season, a 4-3 shootout win for Kelowna on Feb. 26 in Kennewick, Wash. As for the numbers, stats, and results from the regular season—including a club-record 57 wins—Rockets head coach Ryan Huska says simply toss them all out the window. “You say mismatch, but at this time of the year everybody is even,” Huska said. “We’ve talked before that nobody cares about the regular season, it means nothing now. “They have a very good hockey team and their leader is their goaltender,” he added. “We’re going to be challenged to generate offence against him, it’s important for us to make him work.” Just a season ago, the Rockets created some added first-round drama for themselves by losing the first three games of their series against the Seattle Thunderbirds. Kelowna battled back to win the next four to take the series in seven, but expended plenty of energy in the process and was unable to move beyond the second round. The Rockets were also without their injured captain and inspirational leader, Colton Sissons, for the duration of

JUSTIN KIRKLAND (right) and the Kelowna Rockets will host Lucas Nickles and the Tri-City Americans Saturday in Game 1 of their WHL first-round playoff series. the 2012-13 playoffs. A year later, with a mostly healthy roster along with wisdom gained from the near-defeat last March, centre Rourke Chartier said the Rockets should be better prepared for the 2014 postseason. “After last year we know we can’t take anyone lightly, but at the same time we’ve got to be confident in who we are and what we can bring,” said Chartier. “I think as long as we bring our A game we should be all right.” Added Hamilton: “We went into last year’s series in a mindset that wasn’t right, we were pretty banged up. Most of these

kids here went through that last year. But I still don’t think we can sell these guys short.” Kelowna expects centre Tyson Baillie back in the lineup for the playoff opener on Saturday. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native has been sidelined since Feb. 10 with an ankle injury. According to Hamilton, the full week off between the end of the regular season and the playoffs has been a welcome respite for the Rockets who are using the time to heal, rest and reload for the job ahead. “We had a terrible schedule at times this year, like a lot of teams did, so

our guys really needed a break,” said Hamilton. “They need time to take care of some bumps and bruises, so the more rest we get the better.” The Rockets and Americans open their best-of-seven Western Conference quarter final series Saturday, 7:05 p.m., at Prospera Place. Game 2 goes Sunday in Kelowna at 5:05 p.m. Game 3 goes Tuesday in Kennewick, Wash. The other first round series in the Western Conference feature Portland against Vancouver, Victoria playing Everett, and Seattle taking on Spokane.

The Okanagan College Coyotes will open the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC) 2014 regular season this weekend when they travel to Kamloops to face the University of Calgary Dinos and the defending champion Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs. The Coyotes are coming off three straight losses at Elks Stadium over the weekend to conclude the exhibition season. They lost to Edmonton Prospects Baseball Academy in three tight games by scores of 3-2, 6-5 and 1-0. “We’ve had a good exhibition season, but our guys are scratching at the bit to play a game that really means something,” says Coyotes head coach Geoff White. “The weather is starting to turn nicer each day, we had a chance to play at Elks last weekend, so its starting to feel like the season is finally here.” Last spring the ‘Yotes finished a disappointing 12-16 and made an early exit from the championship tournament.  The Coyotes will feature a 36-man roster this season, highlighted by a great mix of veteran leadership, along with a solid crop of young players. Coach White will have 17 pitchers on his staff and 19 positional players. “We’re excited about this group,” continued

Ok Rockets battle Giants in final rematch Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Last March, the Vancouver Northwest Giants denied the Okanagan Rockets of the B.C. Major Midget League title. One year later, the Rockets are getting a second chance. The Rockets and Giants will face off Friday night in Burnaby in Game 1 of the 2014 BCMML final. Game 2 in the bestof-three goes Saturday night, with a third game, if needed, set for Sunday morning in Burnaby. In 2013, an intense, hard-fought series in Burnaby went the limit, with the Giants earning a 1-0 victory in the decidfing game and the league crown. e Okanagan GM David Michaud isn’t the least bit surprised the Rockets and 0Giants are once again the -last teams standing. - “I think it’s probably -fair to say when the seahson started, it’s a matchsup that we and a lot of other people expected to esee,” said Michaud. “It’d bbe wrong to say we haeven’t been looking ahead -

to this for a long time, because we have. Our goal all along has been to get back to the final and win it this time, and we’d like nothing more than to do it against the team that stole it from us.” The Rockets either led or shared top spot in the BCMML all season and it wasn’t until the last weekend that the Giants slipped ahead to claim first place by a single point. As much as Michaud would have liked to host the series for the sake of local fans and parents, he’s comfortable with his team’s chances playing on the road. “I think it will be good for our guys to get out on the road and spend some time with each other,” said Michaud. “We’ve been at home the last three weekends, so I think will be a nice change of pace and scenery. We know we can play with them, so it shouldn’t make a big difference where these games are played.” The Rockets took the season series from the Giants 2-1-1. Okanagan won 5-2 and 2-1 in Kelowna, while the team tied

Colton Kerfoot is Vancouver’s most dangerous weapon up front, but the key to the Giants’ success, according to Michaud, is standout rookie blueliner Dante Fabbro. “He’s the kind of player where his team’s success starts and ends with (Fabbro),” Michaud said. “They lean pretty heavily on three guys on their back end, so we think maybe that could be advantageous for us.” All three games of the BCCML final will be available via pay per view at www.playfullscreen. com

JOST PLAYER OF MONTH… DOUGLAS FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

DEFENCEMAN Mitchell Oliver (right) and the Okanagan Rockets will visit Quinn Benjafield and the Vancouver Northwest Giants this weekend in the B.C. Major Midget League championship final. 4-4 in Burnaby, followed by a 4-3 Giants win. Michaud said there isn’t much to choose between the sides. “Last year, we were the underdogs, but this year I think we could call this a dead heat,” he said. “We’ve been neck-and-

neck all year and I don’t see it being any different this weekend.” The Rockets are led up front by rookie phenom Tyson Jost, who has a strong supporting cast including fellow rookie Jake Kryski, Liam Finlay and Tanner Campbell.

Rockets’ rookie Tyson Jost has been named the BCMML’s player of the month for February. The 16-year-old Calgary native and Everett Silvertips draft pick scored 15 goals and had 26 points in eight games during the month. The solid four weeks of play helped pushed Jost to the BCMML scoring title. Jost set club records with 44 goals and 88 points.

Vees host Vipers tonight in Game 5 As combatants on both sides expected, the BCHL’s Interior Division final is looking like it might be a fight to the finish. The Vernon Vipers and Penticton Vees are all square at 2-2 in the best-of-seven series, with Game 5 set for Thursday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Game 6 will go Friday night at Kal Tire Place in Vernon. The two teams have been trading blows since the opening face-off, with Vernon winning the opener, the Vees rebounding to take Games 2 and 3, then the Vipers getting even again with a win on Game 4. On Tuesday at Kal Tire Place, Kelowna

product Brendan Persley scored twice, including an empty netter, and added an assist as Vernon prevailed 5-2. Colton Sparrow, Mike McNicholas and Riley Guenther also score for the Vipers, while Riley Alferd and Nicolas Pierog replied for Penticton. Game 7, if necessary, would be played Saturday in Penticton. The other secondround playoff series feature Powell River against Victoria, and Coquitlam taking on Langley. The three series winners will advance to a round-robin format March 28, with the top two teams from there earning berths into the championship final.

Wurtele triumphs in Mexico over tough international field Heather Wurtele has added another gold medal to her rapidly growing collection of international triathlon titles. The Kelowna athlete captured the Ironman 70.3 Monterrey race on Sunday in Mexico, ousting Denmark’s Helle Frederiksen by nearly seven minutes. Wurtele completed the 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike, 13.1-mile run in four hours seven minutes and 47 seconds. Wurtele came out of the swim with a deficit to make up, which she did with a strong bike leg (2:18:32), then took over the lead for good on the running portion (1:19:26). A five-time champion at the full Ironman distance, Wurtele also has four wins in the 70.3 category. Heather and husband Trevor, who now live in Kelowna, were named Triathlete Canada Magazine’s ‘Fittest Couple in Canada in 2013, as well as the ‘Long Distance Female/Male Triathletes of the Year’. Trevor Wurtele won Ironman Canada for the first time last year.

A young father was able to go to school to obtain his degree because of the support of YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign funds that provided affordable childcare for his son—giving them both a chance at getting ahead in life. “As a young single dad and co-parent of my son Demetri, I have experienced firsthand how expensive life can be, and the many roadblocks that stand in the way of furthering ones education,” said Nick Walls. “Without a degree nowadays it can be extremely difficult to find sustaining employment that will enable me to take care of my family’s needs.” With 142,000 children living in poverty throughout the province and approximately 17.5 per cent of kids under the age of

often amounting to half of a single income earner’s daily wage.  “Many young parents cannot afford to continue their education because they have a child,” said Walls.

As a single dad, Walls says he and Demetri’s mother work well together co-parenting to help support Demetri. “Prior to YMCA’s Little Scholars Child Care, Demetri was taken care of by friends and family and the majority of his socialization was with adults,” Walls explained. “It took time for Demetri to get used to functioning within groups of kids his own age, but the positive interactions with others taught him impulse and emotional control and improved his speech and communication since he struggled with stuttering and expressing his feelings. Demetri is five now and has transitioned well into kindergarten. To learn more or to donate to YMCA Strong Kids, see www.ymcaokanagan.ca/ strongkidscampaign/.

KOTSCH, HEINZ It is with great sorrow that we said goodbye on March 12, 2014. After a long battle with Parkinson’s, the Lord took Heinz into his arms. Immigrating to Saskatoon in 1952, the brick mason worked hard to build a successful business. This permitted him to enjoy an early retirement, complete with homes in Arizona and the Kootenays, eventual settling in Kelowna. Heinz was predeceased by his parents Herman and Hilda and his first wife Sigrid. His life continued as a father of five, husband to Marion, brother, uncle, Opa of ten and great Opa of three. He lived his life large and loved it. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, March 21, 2014 at 11:00 am at the Mission Creek Alliance Church, 2091 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Parkinson’s Society are greatly appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

The characteristics behind finding entrepreneurial success

S

everal readers have asked me to write about what constitutes a successful entrepreneur in this column, at least someone who carries out the launch of an new entrepreneurial venture. I’m not claiming that earning mountains of money is a success benchmark, for it’s a notable achievement by itself to get a new business off the ground. But let me offer you a sketch here of Mr. Okanagan Entrepreneur— that mystical, magical human that perhaps many of us would gladly emulate given the right set of circumstances. If you think you want to run your own innovative enterprise but are not sure you have the right

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young qualifications, let’s explore the desired recipe together. The simple truth the literature tells us is that the majority of us are not born leaders, but become entrepreneurial leaders by who we are and the actions we take. In your personal journey toward the entrepreneurial success finish line, please be willing to open your mind, your heart and your sense of reasoning as you consider whether these characteristics

are part of your driving force. If they are not yet ingrained in you in some fashion, I would recommend that you give them some serious thought. Let’s now take a brief look at the distinguishing characteristics of effective leadership including those entrepreneurial in nature: • a global perspective —appreciates differences across cultures, learns from and finds a common ground • an entrepreneurial spirit—is not afraid to try new ideas and puts a combinations of ideas together to make things happen • an enterprise design capability—able to put deals together, structure alliances and relationships and build organizations • a teacher—people in

any organization need to learn new things by those leading them i.e. a teacher • a fundamental value system— integrity, responsibility, honesty, respect for the dignity of others. I will now give you the shorter version of entrepreneurial characteristics that are quite worth rating yourself on as you investigate the world of entrepreneurial pursuit and consider the trip: Possessing the characteristics outlined below may answer the burning question of ‘Am I an entrepreneur?’: • Drive and energy— the ability to work long hours for sustained periods with less than the normal amount of sleep. • Self-confidence— a

genuine belief in yourself and your ability to achieve your determined goals as an aspiring entrepreneur • Long-term involvement—a strong commitment to projects and initiatives that may reach completion in multi-year targets • Using money as a performance measurement—money, in the form of salaries, profits or capital gain ought to be viewed as a measure of how your enterprise is performing rather than as an end in itself (evidence-based literature tells us that money is not at the top of the entrepreneurs totem pole for success) • Persistent problem-solving— must possess an intense and de-

termined desire to solve problems toward completion of tasks; the core essence of entrepreneurial creation is seeking problems and finding solutions • Taking moderate risks— success is generally the result of calculated risk-taking that provides a reasonable and challenging chance of success • Learning from failure— understanding your role in a failure can be very beneficial in avoiding similar situations in the future and establish a clarity for your personal growth • Using criticism—at times a bitter pill to swallow, but acceptance of constructive criticism is acceptance of your willingness to grow and be-

come a true entrepreneurial leader There may be days when an existing or aspiring entrepreneur feels discouraged or disappointed, but giving up is not an option. Having faith, trust, confidence and determination with some love thrown in the mix are the qualities needed. To keep their focus on track, they will often seek out the support of those who know them, encourage them and bring out their natural enthusiasm, which was purpose behind the creation of the Okanagan Entrepreneurs Society. Joel Young is the founder of the Okanagan Entrepreneurs Society. eagleyoung@shaw.ca

▼ CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN

Expansion plans get another extension Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

BUSINESS COLUMNIST Maxine DeHart tells us that you can pick up (or have delivered) a scrumptious meal of Chinese food when you visit the counter at Duffer’s Pub in the Mission Creek Golf Club. Wok Inn restaurant owners Ronnic Kwong and Clem Yung have added the take-out location to their other operations in Rutland and Glenmore.

Crystal Mountain Resort has been granted yet another extension for a rezoning application that would allow for expansion. According to Bruce Smith, communications officer with the Regional District of the Central Okanagan, the board has approved the extensions because “it recognizes the challenges over the past four years with the international financial and investment community.” “The applicant continues to express confidence and optimism about the project and is continuing efforts to find financing

and partners to move the application forward,” said Smith. In a letter from Oberto Oberti, president of Pheidias Development Management Corporation—the agent working on behalf of Crystal Mountain—to RDCO planning manager Ron Fralick, Oberti said international investment “seems to be at the doorstep of the project.” “I had the good fortune of being able to be part of the provincial B.C. delegation to China at the end of November…it looks like provincial staff is making progress introducing both Chinese institutional investment groups and immigrant investors,” wrote Ob-

erti. “I feel that with the assistance of provincial staff our collective efforts should bear fruit.” Plans for Crystal Mountain expansion are not new. The zoning amendment bylaw received first reading by the regional board March 17, 2008. Before that, the resort had a master development agreement approved by the province. In 2012, a Swissbased investment group— Agentura—visited the ski hill and indicated a desire to potentially finance its much-anticipated expansion; however, that interest has seemed to fizzle out. Smith said the decision to grant the eighth ex-

tension was unanimous among the regional board members. ••• The BC Safety Authority is still at Crystal Mountain Resort, conducting their investigation into what caused a chairlift to malfunction and send three chairs plummeting to the ground March 1. “It’s quite in-depth. They’re taking their time to make sure everything is done properly and all the appropriate tests are done,” said Newcomb. He said the investigation involves both on- and off-site testing. “I know they’re deconstructing parts of the equipment and having engineers

do in-depth analysis. “We’ve been able to get the chair lift to an operational state, and have been conducting dynamic tests in order to perform further analysis of the installation.” Newcomb said part of the reason the investigation is taking some time is due to the rarity and seriousness of the situation. “We want to make sure that we’re looking at any possible contributing factor to reach an outcome of mitigating a risk of reoccurrence anywhere else.”

WEST KELOWNA

Phase 2 of Casa Loma drainage project begins The District of West Kelowna has started work on the second phase of the Casa Loma Drainage Project, beginning with work on a portion of Campbell Road. Residents in the area can expect dust, noise, vibrations and traffic disruptions. Colmar Construction Ltd. has been contracted to perform the storm sewer installation between 2545 and 2627 Campbell Road from March 17 to April 30. Due to the narrow road width and significant pipe size, single lane alternating traffic with up to 15 minute delays for motor-

ists will be required. Work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, with possible weekend work when required. According to a District of West Kelowna statement, the district and its contractor recognize the inconvenience these delays will cause, and they thank motorists for their patience and understanding. Residents are reminded to consider these construction delays when planning travel through that section of Campbell Road. Priority access will be maintained for emergency

vehicles and school buses. Residents living in the work zone will be assisted with garbage collection. On evenings and weekends, traffic in the southbound lane will have the right of way and northbound traffic will yield to oncoming traffic. Appropriate signs will be placed in the work zone to alert drivers and pedestrian traffic. The district anticipates the $700,000 project will be substantially completed by the end of May. For more information on the Casa Loma Drainage Project, visit West Kelowna’s web site districtofwestkelowna.ca.

Regional district briefs: Okanagan Film Commission update Okanagan Film Commissioner Jon Summerland gave the Regional District of the Central Okanagan an update on the commission’s activities and plans for the area. Summerland said the region saw more than 30 productions during 2013 generating more than $14.4-million in revenue. The Commission is proposing a 2014 total budget of $217,500, including a request for $110,000 from the regional district. The board agreed to advance first quarter funding and will

consider the complete funding request as part of the 2014-2018 budget discussions. The film commission also receives funding from the North Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen regional districts, the Boundary Economic Development Commission and the Province of B.C.

ELECTION OFFICIALS

The regional district board appointed the officials who will conduct the Nov. 15 local government elections in the Central Okanagan East and Cen-

tral Okanagan West.  Mary Jane Drouin will serve as the chief election officer while Deneen McArthur will act as deputy chief election officer with the authority to appoint other election officials as needed.

WILDFIRE PREVENTION 

The regional board adopted a resolution supporting applications for funding under the Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative programs.  The Union of BC Municipalities administers funds under this prov-

incial government program to support community initiatives to mitigate interface wildfire risks.  The regional district plans to apply for funding to conduct wildfire fuel treatment on a 5.43-hectare portion of Crown land surrounding communication infrastructure on Black Knight Mountain and to develop a fuel prescription plan for Mill Creek Regional Park.  Since inception of the wildfire prevention initiative the regional district has received in excess of $1 million for preparation

Would you like to stop snoring? Are you CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)intolerant?

Do you snore? Does your partner snore? If you suffer from snoring you may find that you are waking up each day feeling tired and listless, unprepared to start the day ahead. If your partner is snoring you may wake up feeling exactly the same way. Snoring also may be a sign you have sleep apnea, a potentially deadly condition where you stop breathing at night. Snoring/sleep apnea disrupts your ability to sleep deeply and completely. It makes no difference whether the snoring is happening to you or to someone that you are close to. Either way, you are unable to get the sleep that is so important for physical and mental health. Fortunately there are snoring/sleep apnea solutions. The first thing that you have to do is to find out the cause of the snoring so that you can address it properly. Why are you snoring? There are a number of reasons. You may find that you are snoring due to an obstruction that is caused by the way that your jaw is formed and the way that your teeth and tongue fit in your mouth. This is often the case in sleep apnea. You need to be tested to see if you have sleep apnea. Snorers, sleep apneics, and those who are CPAP intolerant may benefit from an oral device from a properly trained dentist. For further info...

Q A

Did you know that the word “issue” in French means “exit”? What if your problems, or so called issues, are simply doorways to new beginnings? Things that you have looked at as problems in the past, are really things that you want to change.  So why do your problems feel so heavy? Because your definition of them as problems is a lie. Lies always make you feel heavy. What is true for you will always make you feel lighter. Does me even saying this, make you feel lighter? Then this is true for you! So the next time you encounter a problem, what if you asked a question, such as “is this a problem or a possibility?” Which one makes you feel lighter? You can also ask, “is this the change I have asked for?” When you perceive a problem, try to stay in the question with every issue, then you can turn every issue into a possibility: “What do I do with this? How does it get any better? What else is possible here?” 

Living in the question is the key to freedom and change.

What do you recommend for backsplashes in Kitchens… if any?

There are so many choices for backsplashes… and sometimes it’s just a matter of a great paint color and nothing else, and often it comes down to part personal preference and part budget. One thing we can tell you for sure is that the days of having a laminate countertop with an “all in one pre-formed” backsplash are outdated. Laminate countertops have come such a long way and by adding the preformed backsplash, you put them back in time 10 years. Instead, let the countertop die right into the wall. We love tile for backsplashes, with so many choices of man-made or natural stone, and a million different mosaics in 12”x 12” sheets, you can boggle your mind and you may want to get the advice of a designer, we often help our clients with backsplashes. Please note, there is often glass in the mosaic mix and if you have glass in yours, use an Un-sanded grout so it doesn’t scratch the glass. The largest size we suggest is a width of 6” the length can vary, some of the current styles have 12”x 6” tiles in a brick pattern and they look great. Other things to consider are your electrical cover plates, either find a color that blends with the backsplash or if your tile-setter is really good and the tile is not too thick see if they can cut some holes to fit over the electrical and finish it with grout the same as the rest of the tile. Home stores have great selections for tiles and we would go there first. If you have a new kitchen and you plan to stay in your house for a long time, consider the longevity of the style you choose, will it be out of style next year? If you’re doing the improvement on a rental property or fixing up your property for sale, current is good, renters and new home buyers like to have the latest and the greatest. I could write 4 pages on this question, but I only have so much space! My last and most important advice is to get your countertop in first and bring samples home so that you can see them with your cabinets, countertop, flooring, paint etc… and most importantly, your own lighting.
