Parks need money, not petitions

New trial for Snelson set for Kamloops Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Jennifer Smith

STAFF REPORTER

Recent petitions to save B.C. parks from legislation perceived as paving the way for pipelines through protected areas generated some of the hottest petitions online, but those concerns are likely misdirected, according to the woman charged with overseeing the system and a representative from the Campaign for B.C. Parks. The recent B.C. Parks Amendment Act, Bill 4, passed into law, but was widely criticized in traditional media and online forums as a means to open parks to industrial uses, the pair told the B.C. Wildlife Federation Friday during its annual general meeting. In response to the perceived threat, several online petitions surfaced including one by the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society generating 165,000 signatures in a week from Facebook users. “It was some of the best results the site hosting it has ever seen,” Ric Careless, Campaign for Parks spokesman said of the petition launched on Sum of Us. But Careless sees the amendments as an unfortunate red herring, noting the response from the public clearly indicates pipelines in parks would be met with vehement protest. “We did an analysis with my organization, BC Spaces for Nature, and we are of the belief all of the proposed pipelines could be built without the necessity of going through parks,” he said. “I think that aspect of the amendment is unfortunate…There has been confusion around boundary policy.” Lori Hall, the civil servant in charge of parks and protected spaces for the B.C. Ministry of Environment, said the legislative changes were really an administrative clean-up meant to ensure the wording of the Parks Act reflects stop-gap measures those working on the ground have developed to deal with requests from the film industry, researchers and tourism operators who want to undertake activities technically considered off limits. Smaller parks, originally, had special provisions expressly preventing commercial activity when managed under forestry, she explained. Now that activities, like logging, are off limits in

Friday in Victoria as the new minister of agriculture, taking over the cabinet post from Pat Pimm who stepped aside due to personal health issues. Letnick takes on the job on the heels of changes introduced by the government to how the Agricultural Land Reserve will function, opening up more opportunities for non-agriculture related farm land use in some parts of the province.

The man charged with the 1993 killing of Jennifer Cusworth succeeded in his bid to have his trial moved out of Kelowna. Neil George Snelson will now be tried for manslaughter in a Kamloops courtroom. Snelson’s lawyer, Wade Jenson, told the court Monday that Crown counsel Iain Currie consented to the location transfer. A date for the upcoming trial will be set April 28. It’s a move that didn’t come as a surprise to friends and family of Cusworth. Jennifer’s mother Jean recently pointed out that Snelson and his legal team “know how Kelowna” feels about them. It’s filled with people “who want justice for Jennifer,” she said, outside the courtroom when Snelson made a court appearance last January. And, she said, the move will be more convenient for her and her husband as they’ve recently relocated to Pritchard, which is much closer. The Cusworths, regardless of location, will be at court every day for the second round of the trial. In 2011 a Kelowna jury convicted Snelson of manslaughter. That verdict was overturned late last year when the Court of Appeal ruled that the trial judge erred by showing the jury a portion of video where Snelson can be heard telling a police officer that he hadn’t yet decided how he was to plead to the charges he was facing. Jenson appealed the judge’s decision to show that portion of video evidence, noting it was prejudicial. Jennifer Cusworth, 19, was found in October 1993, beaten and strangled in a ditch off Swamp Road. The case went cold for 15 years, until police arrested Snelson, now 47, in 2009. DNA evidence revealed he had sex with the teen the night she died. He was sentenced to 15 years for manslaughter.

Letnick is back in Clark’s cabinet as agriculture minister Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

It’s back to the future for Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick. After serving as B.C.’s agriculture minister prior to the last provincial election under Premier Christy Clark and then being dropped from cabinet to serve as Clark’s parliamentary secretary, Letnick is back in cabinet again as agriculture minister for a second time. Clark replaced Pat Pimm with Letnick Friday. Letnick was sworn in by Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon Friday afternoon in Victoria. Pimm, 56, is battling colon cancer and underwent surgery in January. He will continue to serve as MLA for Peace River North. Reached in Victoria prior to being sworn in, Letnick said he did not expect the learning curve associated with taking over as a minister to be as steep for him this time as he has only been out of the agriculture minister’s job for a year. But there will be challenges and he expects to learn more once he had been briefed by ministry staff. “I’m looking forward to getting to work, and that starts with reconnecting with stakeholders, sitting down and working together on our common goal of a sustainable and thriving agricultural sec-

Norm Letnick tor,” said Letnick. “We’ll work together to ensure British Columbia’s farmers and ranchers have a bright future, for generations to come.” He said he plans to continue traveling around the province to hear directly from farmers and agricultural organizations and wants to continue with the province’s goal of raising revenues from agriculture in this province to $14 billion per year. He said when he left the ministry they were at $11 billion per year. During Letnick’s tenure, the budget for agriculture in B.C. was one of the few that was increased. It went up about 20 per cent, he said. One of the first things he will do as minister, he said, is to meet with the B.C. Agriculture Council. The province recently announced major changes to B.C. Agricultural Land Reserve that could see development more easily allowed on some lands previously set aside solely for agriculture. Letnick, who learn-

ed of his new appointment Thursday afternoon, said he went home and reread the proposed legislation changing the ALR because it will now fall under his ministry’s jurisdiction. “The protection of farmland and support for farming families is a priority for this government, and Norm brings a wealth of experience as a former Minister of Agriculture,” said Clark, who is the MLA for Westside-Kelowna. She is one of the three MLAs who represent the Central Okanagan, along with Letnick and Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson (Kelowna-Mission). Thomson had been serving as interim agriculture minister following Pimm’s cancer diagnosis and surgery. “I want to thank Pat Pimm for leading an ambitious agenda to strengthen and grow B.C.’s agriculture industry. Right now, he needs to focus on his family, his health and recovery,” said Clark. Letnick said he and his family are praying for Pimm’s recovery. In addition to his cabinet post, Letnick will continue his work handling intergovernmental affairs for the province and his responsibilities for French speakers in B.C. He will, however, have to give up his chairmanship of the standing committee

The latest happened around noon Monday, when an eastbound pickup truck on Harvey Avenue attempted to turn left onto Hardy Street. An SUV that was in the HOV lane heading in the opposite direction T-boned the pickup. On Saturday it was pretty much the same story. That time the driver of an SUV made a left hand turn from Harvey Avenue onto Hardy into the path of an oncoming pickup. Nobody was injured enough to go to the hospital following Monday’s crash, but Saturday’s sent several to hospital.

Grossmith trial Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A young man accused of killing his mother with a hammer in 2012 will face trial by the end of the year. Conor Grossmith’s second-degree murder trial was scheduled Monday for mid-November. Scheduling was expected to take place much earlier, but there have been a number of stumbling blocks to a swift judicial process. Top of the list were examinations into Grossmith’s mental well being. Since the September 2012 incident, Gross-

mith has been the subject of three separate psychiatric exams aimed at determining whether he’s fit to stand trial at all. The findings of those exams could be used in his trial. Grossmith is accused of attacking his mother, 57-year-old Kate Gilchrist, in her Kelowna home on Sept. 13, 2012. She died nine days after the attack, sending shock waves through the community. The Grossmiths were pillars in the community, as Conor’s father was the local face of the United Way for a number of years.

▼ MISSION CREEK GREENWAY

Woman airlifted to KGH for care Sunday afternoon Central Okanagan Search and Rescue was dispatched to assist the B.C. ambulance service and the Kelowna Fire Department in rescuing an elderly lady who was having a mild cardiac issue on the Mission Creek Greenway, off Hollywood Road South. The woman was located at the highest point of the trail, which made it difficult to bring her down.   A B.C. Ambulance supervisor called for heli-

copter transport and the woman was transported to the helicopter for a fiveminute flight to the KGH. COSAR responded with 20 members, one truck and two ATVs.  The call came in just as some members were heading back to the hall after taking part in the yearly Ski to Sea race as race officials and other members who took part in the race itself. Members were close to the staging area and were able to response very quickly.

▼ NO CRIME SCENE

Investigation of human remains reveals four-legged ‘victim’ The RCMP called foul-play when they found bones in the woods near a logging road late last week, but by Monday

afternoon they were telling a much less dramatic story. At around 2 p.m. Monday, a press release

was sent out indicating that whatever the victim of foul-play may have been, it wasn’t likely of the two-legged variety.

“After further forensic investigation we can now confirm the remains are not human and our file has concluded,” said Sgt. Rob

Vermeulen in a press release. The forested area off Trepanier Road in Peachland had been roped off

since a call to investigate potential human remains was made April 11. Police said the body was discovered by some-

one out walking a dog in the area and the remains were found in what appeared to be a makeshift grave.

Fruit growers should include hail damage in their insurance coverage

GUARANTEED Lowest Prices

The B.C. government is recommending Okanagan tree fruit growers include insurance for hail damage in their 2014 risk management plans, and take advantage of the fact that B.C. premiums are the lowest in Canada. Hail insurance offered jointly by British Columbia and Canada is a cost-effective way for farm families to ensure that weather risks such as hail can be managed and farm businesses can be sustained. Spring and summer hail storms occur regularly in the Okanagan, but the exact timing and potential areas impacted are unpredictable. To

help mitigate their risk, all commercial tree fruit growers can buy hail insurance with the option of increasing their coverage throughout the year. Like any insurance policy, coverage cannot be purchased or adjusted retroactively. The governments of B.C. and Canada subsidize the premium of each hail insurance policy in the province. A policy with 80 per cent coverage for an apple crop worth $100,000 would result in $7,200 in producer premiums, according to Victoria, with the governments contributing a roughly equal amount.

Though coverage for up to 100 per cent of a crop is available, many growers choose to purchase 80 per cent coverage as an appropriate level, says the agriculture ministry. Payments to insured tree fruit growers following 2013 hail storms in the Okanagan totalled about $10 million, about half of what was initially estimated but higher than in average years. The ministry developed and distributes a guide to tree fruit growers that specifically outlines hail insurance coverage and the different options for them to consider at: http://www.agf.gov.

Park use confusion incites public backlash Parks from A1 all parks and protected spaces, that language is redundant and made it impossible for park use permits to be issued legally. Hall also noted any form of research, even that to count butterflies, is put through rigorous examination to ensure it advances the purposes of the protective space—like fostering and supporting biodiversity. “We’re very aware of the values that we are there to protect and help thrive,” said Hall. “…You can’t log, you can’t mine, you can’t undertake industrial activities.” Noting filming helps protect parks and tourism permits, such as those given to kayak guiding operations, further the purpose of the recreation areas, she said it’s important to ensure that productive uses are legally allowed. From Careless’s per-

spective, the confusion began when natural gas proponent, Kinder Morgan, proposed a boundary amendment which would drive a pipeline through the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary. Characterizing the idea as incredibly stupid, he said the fact that it saw immediate backlash— and the company rerouted its proposal immediately—is testament to the public’s tenacity when it comes to protecting the parks. The boundary adjustment provision is not new and was never intended

in this amendment, but quickly overshadowed the true purpose of the legislation when Kinder Morgan’s research into the project surfaced. Boundary adjustments have, in fact, been legal since 2000 and the provision was amended in 2004 and 2011, according to Hall. It has seen 44 successful adjustments since 2004. “Those amendments haven’t industrialized the parks,” she said. “What they have done is they have allowed us to change the boundaries where there have been administrative errors.”

More advanced mapping tools have been employed to solve some minor issues in some adjustment cases and, in other cases, boundaries have been changed to adjust for the health and safety of surrounding communities, like drilling a well in a park to accommodate a community that doesn’t have water, she said. Careless called on the public to harness that energy for the issue and pour it into a critical need instead. “We need $100 million minimum to really make these parks viable,” he said. “The degradation of our parks is becoming apparent. Some small parks are being decommissioned, the camping season is being shrunk to three months or less and B.C. is now the only jurisdiction in North America where government does not support a parks interpretation program.” From illegal poach-

ing and logging, which cannot be stopped without more parks staff, to the under-funded trails system, parks simply need more money and more support, he said. “Today’s $4.5 million budget is the same as it was in 1971 when I got started in parks,” he noted. “Canada’s national parks system, which serves the same number of people as B.C.’s, has a budget 14 times the size.” The Campaign for Parks will be calling on all sectors to get involved as it moves to push government for a bigger piece of the budgetary pie. “If government can find billions of dollars to fund a two-week winter Olympics or hundreds of millions of dollars for a new B.C. Place Stadium roof or reduce the taxes paid by mining investors, they can also solve the current parks crisis,” he said. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Council backs ALR exclusion Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

An impassioned plea by the daughter of an elderly couple who have operated a small farm in Kelowna’s Rutland area for 40 years but are now facing financial hardship has convinced Kelowna council to disregard a recommendation by its staff and will support a bid to let the eight-hectare farm be subdivided. Council was persuaded Monday to support the bid by the Dudka family to petition B.C.’s Agricultural Land Commission to allow subdivision of the Morrison Road farm into two four-hectare parcels and establish a recreational vehicle campsite on one parcel as well as a small home-based business. Staff also do not want to see the land become what they described as an “estate lot.”

The Dudkas’ proposal would keep the land in the Agricultural Land Reserve. While city staff opposed the plan based on the fact the land is viable farmland, a desire to see it continue to be farmed and a larger than allowed number of RV sites, all members of council seemed moved by Catalina Dudka’s presentation. They seemed particularly moved by her contention that preservation of the farmer, as well as farm land, should be taken into consideration. She argued that allowing the request would strengthen farming because it could make the property more attractive to a younger person who may want to lease part of the property and continue to farm it. Currently, she said, there are no takers for an eight-hectare farm.

And even the one councillor who opposed supporting it to the ALC said he believed the Dudkas’ request should be considered. “I think they have the right to go to the commission to make their case,” said Coun. Robert Hobson, the only councillor who did not vote in favour of sending the issue to the ALC with council support. Instead, he said, it should go without council’s support. But that was not the motion on the floor at the time. Following his solitary vote against the motion, he apologized for casting it. But the rest of his council colleagues all voted to not only send the issue to the ALC, but to add their support. However, Mayor Walter Gray cautioned the Dudkas that the final decision lies with the commis-

sion not council and his council was just a conduit. And, he added, he feared it could very well still be rejected by the commission because it appears to contravene ALC policies regarding the subdivision of viable agricultural land in B.C. “I’m coming to this with an approach of compassion,” Gray told Catalina Dudka in declaring his support for her request. Still, Dudka, who battled the effects of a severe cold to make her case to council and whose voice at one point broke as she described her family’s financial plight and need to make the change, said she and her parents were willing to take their chance with the ALC if council would support them. “I’m doing this for my parents,” she told council. “I’m being a dutiful daughter. I promised them I would.”

THE HUNT continues to locate a couple who stole the resident house cat,

Annie (above) from Buckerfield’s in Kelowna and took off. The store owner, Chelsie Trudel, chased the same truck model as shown above with the couple and the cat inside as it took off down Springfield Road. The incident drew wide media coverage and the police are continuing the investigation. The store has set up a cat cage in the rear so the cat could be returned safely, no questions asked. “The whole thing is kind of bizarre and confusing but we just want to see the cat returned,” Trudel said.

licking the perimeter of his neighbour’s roof early Wednesday. “I heard a bang and the window blew out,” he said. “At first we thought it was a car accident because you get them here all the time.” When he went out-

side, however, it was immediately clear they were facing something quite different. “The air was so black, and you could see flames coming out of the roof.” The B.C. Coroners Service continues to investigate this death.

▼ OUR VIEW

Maintain critical thinking

I

f there is an emerging theme to the 2010s, it is that many basic assumptions—no matter how cherished or longheld—are no longer enough to support our decision-making. No matter where we stand on the political spectrum, no matter how pro-environment or pro-industry we are, no matter how trusting of government we feel or devoted to the rights of the individual we want to be, we are challenged to sift and examine facts, to consider carefully the sources of our information, and

reject propaganda and spin, no matter whether from ‘pro-’ or ‘anti-’ forces. We are faced by issues of such magnitude, whether globally or locally, that we can’t afford to trust the old simplistic, assumption-based arguments anymore. The downside of the information explosion of the past few decades has been information overload—and this has not been ignored by those, whatever their political stripe, who have motives to coax us in one direc-

tion or another. Pseudo-facts can be cobbled from elements of the truth and tailored to fit all our pre-existing assumptions, and the combined result can be promulgated endlessly across the Internet. Instead of some basic, underlying incontrovertible truth, we are too often left only with an impression of truth, geared to our emotions and fueled by scads of lobbying dollars. Our responsibility, no matter how we wish to shirk it, is to stay informed and examine, crit-

ically, evidence from all sides of the issues. Faced with information overload, the human animal has two basic responses. One is to shut off critical thinking altogether and go with the opinions of whomever we’re told is to be trusted. The other is to dig in the heels and resist, kicking and screaming, any attempt to drag us into the future—no matter how much in our best interests it may be. Neither of these reactions will serve us well in the long run.

Fight sheds little light: Do protesters know what farming is?

D

etailed debate on changes to the Agricultural Land Commission got underway in the legislature last week, while protesters played to urban voters outside. A couple of West Kootenay NDP supporters brought a basket of homegrown veggies down to help East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett get through the winter on a 100-mile diet. A group of mostly UBC scientists wrote to Premier Christy Clark, embracing the popular assumption that the changes will automatically mean more exclusions of agricultural land, as well as expanded secondary uses in the Cariboo, Kootenay and North zones. This “jeopardizes species at

risk, threatens many common species, and will impact many species prized for hunting,” they wrote.  It makes me wonder if these university botanists and bird experts actually understand what farming is. You know, clear-cutting a forest and planting largely monoculture crops? Using big machinery, creating drainage, applying fertilizers, controlling diseases, pests and wild animals? Not backyard gardening—real farming of the sort that has fed more people than in all of hu-

man history? Have they heard that the largest cause of deforestation in North America is farming? Do they imagine habitat loss from subTom divisions sprawling Fletcher across the Cariboo? Forests Minister Steve Thomson has been pinch-hitting for Fort St. John MLA Pat Pimm on the agriculture file as Pimm undergoes cancer treatment. Thomson took exception when NDP agriculture critic Nicolas Simons asked if he is aware people think the changes are to “neuter the chair of the

VICTORIA VIEWS

Agricultural Land Commission.” Thomson, a former executive director of the Kelowna-based B.C. Agriculture Association, replied that the changes do not reduce the independence of the chair. Under further questioning from Simons, Thomson allowed that the current ALC chair, Richard Bullock, has provided no response to the government on the proposals. Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick was appointed Friday to replace Pimm as agriculture minister. But this ALC project is Bennett’s initiative, so I asked him about his changes to the appointment process. Bennett said the six regional pan-

els, up to three people each, were set up by then-minister Stan Hagen in 2003 to provide local input. That worked well, he said, until Bullock came on the scene and began exer- w cising his discretion not to appoint h i people recommended by cabinet. “The chair doesn’t like the region- n t al panels,” Bennett told me. “It’s a pain in the ass for the chair to have e to deal with 18 farmers from all over 2 the province in making decisions. It r would be six farmers, because only t one person from the regional panel o actually sits on the provincial com- w f mission. m See Fletcher A9

Adult & Childrens

Open letter to City of Kelowna Mayor and Council: I am a resident of Glenmore. I walk my dog every day along the Brandt’s Creek Linear Park. This park is well used by the residents of

Glenmore. Daily you can see bike riders and walkers and joggers. Many seniors walk along this path. We all enjoy the wildlife in the park which includes ducks, geese, turtles, deer and last year we had a family of owls.

There is a garden plot in the park. It concerns me to see a car wash being built so close to one of the entrances to the park. There is a school nearby and many students and their families use this entrance

to the park on their walk home. The congestion on Glenmore Road would be increased and an accident more likely. I believe the noise and fumes from this car wash will be detrimental to the

wildlife in the park, the citizens of Glenmore, as well as the residents who live near by. We have a beautiful and well used park. Let’s keep it that way. Donna Ethier, Kelowna

To the editor: I would just like to comment on Mr. Jorgen Hansen’s letter in Friday’s paper. (There Is No Need For Burning Agricultural Waste In This Day And Age Of Environmentalism, April 11 Capital News.) Firstly, pruning commences shortly after the trees go dormant and occurs all winter long as long as the temperature remains above minus 5 C. 

Priced for

vals so most chemicals are benign by mid-August and Mother Nature has her own way of eliminating them in the interim. Because of the multiple angles of prunings, trying to feed them into a commercial chipper or load them for transport would be somewhat akin to “herding cats.” Hauling them to the landfill would be an expensive and impractical solution because of the bulky na-

ture of the prunings. Now, having explained that, I would advise that in our orchard we do chip the prunings right in the orchard on the ground. There are a couple of issues involved in that. The first being that the chipper is a $10,000 piece of equipment that is used for about three days a year. The second is that it leaves millions of small hardwood slivers on the

orchard floor which have a propensity to penetrate tractor tires. In our case that has necessitated putting expensive fork lift tires on the tractors that are more resistant to puncturing. I trust that this will give a little insight into the issue.

▼ HEALTH CARE

Effort being made to strike down Medicare To the editor: Early this month, Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench decision to uphold the province’s ban on private health insurance for medically necessary services was good news for Alberta, and for all Canadians. The court was not persuaded that wait times in Alberta are linked to the province’s ban on private insurance that duplicates what is covered under Medicare. A similar, much broader, constitutional challenge to Medicare is scheduled to go to trial in B.C. Supreme Court this September. The case is driven by Dr. Brian Day, owner of the Vancouver-based Cambie Surgery Centre, a for-profit surgical clinic known for unlawfully billing patients for health care services. Dr. Day is seeking to strike down B.C.’s

rules that protect fair and equal access to care by prohibiting doctors from charging patients extra for services already covered under our provincial insurance plan. He’s also taking aim at B.C.’s ban on duplicate private health insurance. If Dr. Day wins in B.C., those laws will inevitably be struck across Canada, undermining our entire universal public health care system. Similarly to arguments made by the plaintiff in the Alberta case, Dr. Day argues that wait times would improve by striking down Medicare laws. But evidence from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the UK shows the opposite: A two-tier system leads to longer wait times and worse health outcomes. Only

Bullock’s days as chair numbered Fletcher from A8 “He thinks that it’s unwieldy, and he’d rather have the decision-making centralized in Burnaby. But we changed that. We decided as a duly elected government in 2003 that we wanted the regions to have a say on this stuff, so the intention of the legislation, we felt, was actually being defeated, because we hadn’t made it mandatory.” It will be mandatory

soon, and Bullock’s days as commission chair appear to be numbered. “There’s no more discretion for any future chair to monkey with it,” Bennett added. One of Bennett’s key issues is denial of secondary residence construction to keep families on the land in the Interior. The legislation also introduces social and economic factors in weighing decisions in the North, Cariboo and Kootenay regions, where

in most cases development pressure is an urban myth. The main ALC board will still have authority to revisit a local panel decision if the chair deems it inconsistent with the mandate to protect farmland. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc Email: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

those who can afford to pay have shorter wait times when they buy their way to the front of the line. Everyone else waits longer because doctors can only treat one patient at a time. I’m encouraged to see the Alberta court decision and hope for a similar outcome in B.C. this fall. Canada does not need health reform through an end-run in the courts, driven by for-profit clinic owners. We need evidence-based improvements in the public system to reduce wait times for elective surgeries for everyone.

DEBT COUNSELLING

Ben Neiland opened the Kelowna office of the Credit Counselling Society 10 years ago. Some 4,350 counselling appointments later, the need to help people resolve their debt issues carries on. “You never get tired helping people,” said Neiland. “Living with too much debt is a terrible thing. It just weighs on you all the time. It’s very gratifying to show people there is a light at the end of the road. “Debt is one of those things people don’t want others to know about. It’s one of the most private, personal issues people face, which is why it’s so difficult for people to pick up the phone and ask for help.” In 2013, there were 11,802 consumer insolvencies in B.C., which has been relatively consistent for the past three years, and well above pre-recession levels of 8,160, according to the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada.  The Credit Counselling Society is a non-profit charitable organization established in 1996 to help educate the public on the wise use of credit and assist people in financial difficulty.

NEW STARTUP

As the debate on tea vaping heats up, a Kelowna company has unveiled its all-natural take on the craze under the banner Rethink Tea. Tea vapes contain no chemicals and are hand crafted locally using 100 per cent natural raw materials. Sharing a love of tea and a passion for innovative ideas, the trio behind the Rethink Tea chemical free vapourizer say their goal was to offer a modern take on a classic pastime. Their pending patent process infuses loose leaf teas and other natural aromatics into a pure vegetable glycerin base to reduce the unknowns in vaping. The tea vapes come in three blends: Wake (green tea, peppermint, astragalus), Balance (white tea, cinnamon, apple) and Rest (red tea, passionflower, mango). For more information check out the company’s website www. re-thinktea.com.

Signage sends message for UDI chapter It’s a sign with a positive economic message. That is the intent behind a new sign project undertaken by the Okanagan chapter of the Urban Development Institute, called Building Our Community Sign Program.  “UDI Okanagan has embarked on this new sign program to communicate to the community the positive benefits of the development industry,” said Andrew Bruce, president of the UDI Okanagan chapter who heads up planning for the Melcor residential development projects in the Central Okanagan. “We continue to advocate that we are partners with the city and the community in building our city and region. This new signage program is just one small way for us to communicate some of the benefits positive and responsible growth has on our community.”  The program works by allowing any UDI Okanagan member developers to pay a small fee to enrol one or more of their developments into the program.  Developers choose from a variety of economic, community or environmental benefits associated with the particular development to be showcased such as construction costs, infrastructure contribution, development cost charges, number of jobs created, number of long-term jobs created, economic impact, environmental benefits, community benefits, and historic contribution to date. Bruce said one of the key features of the program is that all benefits featured on the sign need to be verified by a qualified appraiser/verifier connected with UDI Okanagan. The first project enrolled in the sign program is Academy Hill, which is a three-phase mixed-use development in Kelowna located at 975 Academy Way, adjacent to the UBCO campus. Verified by independent appraiser Kent Macpherson, Academy Hill’s sign reports the project’s Phase 1 and

Phase 2 will have an economic impact of $29 million and will contribute $1.2 million in development cost charges, fees collected from land developers by a municipality to offset some of the infrastructure expenditures incurred, to service the needs of the new development. Academy Hill’s Phase 1 includes 48 units of apartment housing and 13,235 square feet of commercial development. Phase 2 is under construction and will include 30 additional apartment units upon completion. Phase 3 has not yet commenced, but is proposed for between 7,500 and

9,000 square feet of additional commercial space. Phase 3 has not been included in this Sign Program. Watermark Developments, headed by John Hertay and Michael Holzhey, is the developer of Academy Hill. According to Hertay, he hopes the signs will inform the public of the significant contribution developments such as Academy Hill make to the community in jobs, city infrastructure through development cost charges and positive economic impact on companies and people of Kelowna.

Bernard Avenue road upgrade project nears completion The end is in sight for the revitalization of Kelowna’s main downtown street. According to Kelowna City Hall, the first layer of paving is underway on the final phase of the $14-million Bernard Avenue revitalization, which marks the completion of utilities and the commencement of streetscaping and landscaping work. “It’s your last chance to walk in the middle of the road when walkways temporarily shift from next to the buildings onto the middle of the newly paved road for the final time,” says the city in a news release issued Friday. The city reminds residents that businesses are open as usual and accessible with corridors from the centre of the road to each business entrance, minimizing disruption to pedestrians and business accesses, while allowing for the removal and reconstruction of the sidewalks. “The water main and storm systems are now complete and we are looking forward to the sidewalk construction and proceeding to the final steps of the project,” said Bill Berry, design and construction services director. “New trees, benches and the installation of the last light standards will complete the consistent look of Bernard Avenue from the Sails to the Gateway at Richter Street.” The extensive improvements will see

I’m more than a volunteer...

I’m a future leader. Volunteering at the Y Volunteering and random acts of kindness make us happier in life. One of the main reasons is they give us a greater sense of fulfillment. Each volunteer has a different reason for choosing where and for what cause they devote their time and talent, but according to Statistics Canada, 93% of volunteers said that contributing to the community in which they live was the key motivating factor in their decision. This is exactly why one young volunteer made the choice to get involved with the YMCA of Okanagan. Paul Mclellan, age 15, saw the benefits volunteering had for his sister and it sparked his interest to give back.

Facebook | Twitter | YouTube

“I have been volunteering at H2O for a couple years now and I really like the people, the facility and what the YMCA stands for,” says Paul. “There are a lot of different ways I can contribute here. My favorites so far have been helping at events, working with staff and members and being a part of the Y’s latest orientation video. I really like having fun with kids too, so this is perfect for me.”

opportunities in our health and wellness programs, childcare, employment, camp, governance and advisory committees, special events, fundraising campaigns, and more.

Through volunteering, Paul is learning valuable skill sets including interpersonal and leadership skills. He is improving his resume, having a great time and staying connected to his community.

t costs a lot to have children, raise children and educate children. During this tax filing season, remember to use the credits and deductions available to you. You can claim to a maximum of $500 per child the fees paid in 2013 relating to the cost of registration or membership for your or your spouse’s or common-law partner’s child FISCAL in a prescribed program FITNESS of physical activity. This includes physical activity, recreational, cultural, artistic or a development activity. Doreen The program must be Smith for eight weeks or longer or five days if it is a day camp. Adoption expenses apply for adopting a child under the age of 18 is eligible for a tax credit of up to $11,669 for 2013. In 2014, the limit for expenses will increase to $15,000. The Canada child tax benefit (CCTB) is available for children under the age of 18 to receive a tax free monthly payment. The benefit amount depends on family income, province of residence and number of children in the family. Low-income families may be entitled to an additional benefit supplement. Children with disabilities may be eligible for the Canada disability credit. Information you provide on your income tax and benefit return is used to calculate your CCTB payments. Going to school is expensive. If your child is enrolled in a qualifying postsecondary program, a credit can be claimed for tuition fees. The tuition, education, and textbook amounts allows you to reduce any income tax you may owe. Your educational institution will provide you with a slip that has the total eligible tuition fees paid as well as the months you were enrolled either part-time or fulltime. You must claim your tuition, education, and textbook amounts first on your own return. You may need to use all of the credit, or just some of the credit depending on how much tax you owe. If you did not need to use all of the credit, you can choose one of the following options: You can transfer an amount equal to $5,000 minus the amount you used to reduce your own tax payable. You can transfer the remainder to your spouse or common-law partner; or your or your spouse’s or common-law partner’s parent or grandparent. Moving expenses can be claimed by students.

this column. So that I don’t mislead you, the reference presented for success embodies the actual launch of an

entrepreneurial new venture, not necessarily earning mountains of money as a benchmark. That said, let me offer

an entrepreneur is a person who looks at the world the same as you and I, but thinks differently about how to grasp a perceived business opportunity. What are the characteristics of an entrepreneur? How does an entrepreneur think? Is your personal profile similar to that of a successful entrepreneur? 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. So 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’re not yet ingrained in you in some fashion, I would recommend that you give them greater 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—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 • a fundamental value system—integrity, honesty, respect for the dignity of others, and

responsibility . I will now give you the shorter version of entrepreneurial characteristics that are quite worth rating yourself on as you consider an entrepreneurial pursuit: 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. Setting challenging but realistic goals—the ability to set clear goals and objectives that are challenging, yet realistic and feasible are worthwhile attributes in any manner of behaviour. Long term involvement—a strong commitment to projects and initiatives that may reach completion in multi-year targets. Use 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. Persistent problem-solving—must possess an intense and determined 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

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young 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— you will need to be able to seek and use criticism of the style and substance of your performance At times a bitter pill but acceptance of constructive criticism is acceptance of your willingness to grow and become a true entrepreneurial leader. I would like to conclude by saying that successful entrepreneurs never give up. It is not in their vocabulary. 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. I believe we have shared a pretty solid recipe for personal growth and change, and hopefully the beginnings of unleashing your “entrepreneurial spirit.” Joel Young is an entrepreneurial leadership coach, educator consultant and founder of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurss Society. eagleyoung@shaw

o matter how determined or committed you are to reaching your health and fitness goals, there will be some bumps along the way. Here are some of the most common setbacks and tips to help you plan and prepare for temporary derailment. It starts with having a plan and sticking to it. Decide ahead of time on certain days and times that will work with your schedule to exercise and write it down. If you’re often tired in the evening, scheduling a morning routine will ensure that you take care of your workout first no matter what life throws at you throughout the day. Having a scheduled fitness routine or class that you adhere to can also be an important factor to success. Injuries can’t always be prevented, but the majority which are exercise-related are derived from repetitive movements combined with weak muscles and bones. Listen to your body and respect its limitations to stay injury free. A way to keep your motivation high is to set a new goal for yourself and periodically switch up your exercises and activities to keep things fresh and fun. Think about setting S.M.A.R.T goals: S- Specific. The goals should be easily understood and specific to tell what is to be accomplished. M- Measurable. The goals should be measurable so there’s no question of attainment . A- Attainable. The goals must be attainable and are not too difficult or too easy. Easy goals are not motivational and overly difficult ones can lead to frustration. R- Relevant, The goals must be relevant to the particular need or ability. T-Time bound. The goals must have specific deadlines for completion. Believe it or not, showing up late for an exercise class or forgetting something for the gym is one of the most common fitness setbacks.

A sure-proof way to avoid this setback is to keep a backup gym bag with extra workout clothes, running shoes, water bottle, etc. in your car, office or gym locker. Bobbi Most missed workKittle outs are a result of feeling tired or sick. Whether it’s a stomach ache, headache, cold or flu, you can’t always keep yourself healthy year-round. But you can help prevent yourself from getting sick by eating a healthy diet, frequent hand washing and taking time for yourself. Exercise helps ward off sickness and it should be a part of your overall wellness plan. Sometimes a light workout can actually make you feel better. Being sleep deprived and tired can also affect your workout motivation. Plan to get enough sleep—seven to nine hours. Sleep helps your focus, mood and energy levels. When recovering from surgery, it’s important to rest and follow the doctor’s orders to have the best possible outcome for recovery. A post-surgical fitness and exercise routine is very important to a full and speedy recovery from any type of surgery. I’m recovering from hernia surgery myself right now, so it’s going to take some time to get back to my fitness level, but I will ease back into my routine with slow, low impact and light exercise and a great deal of patience and listening to my body. So take full responsibility for your health and fitness regimen. When a setback comes, it’s too easy to say “Oh, I’ll do better tomorrow” or “I’ll start up again on Monday.” Avoid falling into that trap, as you can’t put it off, the time is always now.

Rockets and Hawks clash in conference final Which is the better team this year, to be decided by match up. Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Rockets and Portland Winterhawks were the Western Hockey League’s two best teams during the 2013-14 regular season. The debate as to which is actually the better of the two will ultimately be decided before the end of the month. The Rockets and ‘Hawks will square off for the first time ever in the Western Conference final, as the best-of-seven league semifinal begins Friday night at Prospera Place. The Rockets, who set clubs record for wins (57) and points (118), finished five points ahead of Portland (54 wins) for top spot overall in the WHL standings. Kelowna is making its first appearance in the conference final in five seasons, while the ‘Hawks—the defending WHL champs—are heading to the league semis for the fourth straight spring. According to the numbers, there isn’t much that separates the two skilled, high-tempo teams. The ‘Hawks were the highest scoring team dur-

ing the regular season with 338 goals, while the Rockets were second with 310. Kelowna was thirdbest in the league in goals against (182) while Portland was tied for sixth (207). The Rockets are coming off series wins over Tri-City in five, and a sweep of Seattle in round 2. Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton, not surprisingly, expects the Winterhawks—who have lost just twice in the last 38 games—to provide his club’s toughest challenge yet. “The (Winterhawks) are the defending champs and they’re very skilled,” said Hamilton. “Both teams play a wide-open, high-octane kind of game, neither team is going to trap, so it’s going to be pretty entertaining hockey. “Our depth has carried us all year, so hopefully that will work for us in this series.” The Winterhawks, who are coming off a physically demanding five-game series win against Victoria, may not be 100 per cent healthy against the Rockets. Leading scorer Nicolas Petan was injured late in the series finale against the Royals and, as of Monday, hadn’t yet practised with the Winterhawks. Still, with the likes of

points) in the lineup, the Winterhawks remain a dangerous opponent. Winterhawks’ head

coach and GM Mike Johnston looks for the two WHL powers to put on a good show.

“I would expect it’s going to be a great series,” Johnston said. “If you’re a fan of our league the style these teams play, then I think it’s going to be pretty exciting. I think the speed and the quality of play are going to be exceptional. “Kelowna is an explosive team, with four solid lines, a strong defence that activates into the play and great goaltending,” he added. “They do everything well.” The Rockets took down the Winterhawks in all four meetings during

the regular season—6-2 and 6-3 early in October in Kelowna, and 9-3 and 7-2 in Portland. However, in the last two games, the Hawks were without Petan, Pouliot, captain Taylor Leier and Matthew Dumba, all of whom were playing for Canada at the world junior hockey championship. Game 2 in the series goes Saturday night in Kelowna. Games 3 and 4 are set for Portland on Tuesday and Wednesday night. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Six Sun to be at Lions’ camp Two more players from the Okanagan Sun have been invited to the B.C. Lions’ spring evaluation camp this month in Vancouver. Defensive back Matt McConnell and offensive lineman Michele Vecchio will join four other Sun players who were extended invitations by the Lions last month. McConnell had 21 tackles, a fumble recovery and three interceptions, one of which was returned for touchdown has been invited.  Vecchio is a senior grad of the Sun and a product of RSS.  With these two additions, now six players

from the Sun will be attending the camp.  The others are Jonas Gering (defensive line), Brandon Donkers (linebacker), Brennan Van Nistelrooy (defensive back) and Jack Rush (safety). The Lions will record each player’s height and weight along with bench press, broad jump and vertical. They will follow the same testing procedures used at the CFL and NFL combines. This will be the third consecutive year the Lions have opened their doors to players from the BCFC. The camp will be held April 21 and 22.

▼ FACE MASK KERFUFFLE

Raiders default lacrosse season opener The Shaw Cup-champion Kelowna Raiders had to default their first season game of the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League season in Kamloops on Friday, after officials determined that the Raiders’ face masks were not regulation for this season. The new face masks, which were mandated last season then withdrawn by the Canadian Lacrosse Association due to safety concerns partway through the season, allowed the players to revert back to the old style, which is preferred by the vast majority of senior players. The regulation was re-

introduced in pre-season and was inadvertently not complied with by the Raiders. Kamloops did not have the same compliance problem. The two teams had a  mutually agreed to practice scrimmage during which the Kamloops speedsters and sharpshooters dominated the session. The Raiders next action is Friday, April 25 when they host the Armstrong Shamrocks, 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Arena. Meanwhile, the Kelowna junior Raiders open the TOJLL season Thursday, April 24 at home to Armstrong.

Collins aces for Coyotes After a split on Saturday in Nanaimo, one run in the fourth inning was all Okanagan College starter Tanner Collins would need as the Coyoes shutout the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute (VIBI) Mariners 1-0 in Canadian College Baseball Conference action. Collins was the story of the game, throwing

a complete game shutout for his first win of the campaign.  He scattered six hits and struck out eight on route to the victory. The Coyotes scored their lone run in the top of the fourth as Garrett Wiese scored an unearned run following his one out walk.  The offense only tallied three hits.

In Game 2 of the Sunday doubleheader, the Coyotes needed 11 innings to defeat the Mariners 9-5 and win three of four over the weekend in Nanaimo. After the Mariners jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the first two innings, the Coyotes clawed back, with single runs in the third and fourth innings

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Vernon (Vern) Elmer Dorwart who passed away peacefully on April 4, 2014. Vern was predeceased by nine brothers and sisters. He is survived by Joyce, his wife and sweetheart of 67 years. Also by his two sons, Dick (Doris) and Ken as well as five grandchildren and five great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Vern was born in Glen Bain Saskatchewan on July 15, 1926 to Jacob and Julia Dorwart and spent his formative years working on the family farm. He married Joyce Sauter on July 3, 1946 and they relocated to British Columbia where they raised their family. Vern became a very well respected member of the air conditioning and heating industry. His love of fixing things also made him the neighbourhood “go to” guy when something didn’t work. He was often in his workshop trying to bring an idea into reality, and more often than not, he was successful. Vern had a passion for music and was well known for his organ playing and his singing. Vern played in many bands throughout his life and always enjoyed interacting with his fellow musicians as well as those he was entertaining. His love of music appeared often at family gatherings, weddings, special events and parties. As a strong family man, Vern always put the needs of the family ahead of his own. He believed that the best legacy a man could build was a good family, and he often spent time with each family member trying to catch up on what they had been doing. Vern will always be remembered for his good nature and generosity. Vern was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and a great friend to all. He will be truly missed and his passing has left a void in all of us. The family would like to express their gratitude to the BC Cancer Society, Palliative care and Dr. Yarrow for the wonderful continuous care over the last 3 months. In Lieu of flowers, donations to the Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to express your condolences to the family you may do so at the following email address: kdorwart@teamkd.com Celebration of Life to be held at 2:00 p.m. on April 27th at Rutland United Church, 1370 Rutland Road North.

Violence against women ongoing issue

CONTEST PRIZE…

CONTRIBUTED

There was another Okanagan winner for the diamond tennis bracelet contest sponsored by DirectBuy. The winners of the $4,950 prize was Shirley and Ian Foord, of Vernon, joined above by Raymond Lee, owner of the Central Okanagan DirectBuy location.

Award winning author to speak at library branch The downtown Kelowna branch of the Okanagan Regional Library will present a reading by award winning B.C author Claire Battershill on Saturday, April 26, 2 p.m. Battershill grew up in Dawson Creek and has lived in Victoria, Vancouver, Oxford and Toronto. She now lives in London, England, with her husband, Cillian O’Hogan.   The downtown Kelowna branch is located at 1380 Ellis St. For more information call 250-762-2800.

The third week of April is Prevention of Violence against Women Week in British Columbia. You can’t turn on the TV or radio, or pick up a newspaper without being confronted with the grim truth. Every day it seems, there’s news of another tragic incident of violence against women. A famous South African athlete stands trial for murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend. Police in Langley issue an arrest warrant for a man who allegedly attempted to kill his ex-wife and daughter, and also set fire to their house. Twenty-eight-year-old Matthew Foerster is convicted of murder in the death of 18-year-old Taylor Van Diest from Armstrong. And less than two weeks ago, Kelowna RCMP arrested Ryan James Quigley and charged him with the murder of his fiance, Amy Jane Parkes. If the headlines aren’t enough to prove violence

against women is an ongoing issue, the statistics are: More than one in four women in this country is abused by a male partner. On average, every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. Each year, violence and abuse drive more than 100,000 women and children out of their homes and into shelters. The financial cost is bad enough—more than $4 billion a year to Can-

adian society—but the emotional and human costs are incalculable, and almost incomprehensible. For 34 years, the Kelowna Women’s Shelter and its staff have provided refuge and hope for women and children whose lives have been affected by family violence. At the shelter, victims of abuse find counselling, support and a safe place to stay—all completely free of charge. But each time a new

Flower sale campaign Looking for a beautiful way to recognize your mom and all the other mothers in your life this Mother’s Day? The Kelowna Women’s Shelter’s Mother’s Day flower sale allows you to show your love for mom while supporting women and children in need in the community. For just $40 you can buy a colourful bouquet for mom, grandma, and any other woman in your life who deserves a little extra recognition. All proceeds support the Kelowna Women’s Shelter, which provides emergency transitional housing, counseling and other support and education programs for women and their children who have experienced abuse. To pre-order, visit kelownawomensshelter.ca. Flowers can be picked up on Saturday, May 10, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the parking lot of Orchard Plaza Mall behind Royal LePage.

incident makes headlines, shelter staff ask themselves the same questions: Why did the victim not seek help within the shelter’s walls? Did she not know about the safe haven and free services the shelter provides? Was she too scared to try and save herself? Too ashamed to admit she was experiencing abuse? The barriers to women seeking help are as much an ongoing concern as the abuse itself. And while the shelter staff, and its many dedicated volunteers and community supporters work hard to spread the word, there is clearly still much work to be done. Do you have a friend or family member you suspect is being abused? Talk to her. Assure her she isn’t

alone, is not to blame, and has nothing to be ashamed of. Then encourage her to contact our women’s shelter. Just by taking that simple step to shatter the stigma and communicate the important message that abuse is never OK, but asking for help is, you can play a role in changing a life, and help keep one more terrible headline from making the front page. The Kelowna Women’s Shelter is a non-profit organization that offers emergency transitional housing, counselling, support and education to women and their children who have experienced abuse.

Closet cleanout to help others

Gently used means “n ew to you”

Spring is a time of fresh and new, and what better way than to clean out your closet!  Ask any woman today if they have clothing, shoes or accessories that they want to get rid of, and you will receive a resounding yes!  The average woman wears only about 20 per cent of the clothing in her closet.  She also has about 22 items in her wardrobe that she will never wear but absolutely refuses to throw out, and at least 5 of these items still have the tags on them.  And, while we try and purge by donating to deserving charities, we often hold onto many items because we spent a lot of money on them, it’s a favourite or we hope to fit into it again one day!  Having a monetary incentive to get rid of your clothing helps make that purging just a little easier, and having a deadline doesn’t hurt either!  Women also love buying new clothing, or at least “new to you” clothing.  Second hand, consignment stores, and thrift stores have done a thriving business over the last few years. Swap groups have popped up on social media channels and used clothing classifieds continue to grow. There is also the environmental benefit of re-using clothing rather than just throwing it away. This is what inspired Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown, owner of RedScope Media to create the Kelowna Closet Cleanout - Ladies Fashion Flea Market on April 26. “There are several flea markets geared to selling kids clothing and equipment, but there is nothing similar for ladies’ fashion,” said Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown, who owns her own marketing company, RedScope Media, that specializes in social media and event coordination.  “I

know so many women who are looking for options and motivation to clean out their closets, and I thought this may be a great event to fill that need.  Choosing the Kelowna Women’s Shelter to benefit from the event was a natural fit, and all donated shoes & clothing after the sale will be going to Soles4Souls.” Ting-Mak’s business is Social Media Management for a social life.  She says, “Life is about being social…social media, social marketing, social events.”  So, using mostly social media, Rosanne found a location and started spreading the word. The response was tremendous, and she has done much of the event organizing from taking payments, to coordinating how to build fitting rooms right from her home office.  Within a month over 80 per cent of the tables have been rented out of the anticipated space for 70.     The Kelowna Closet Cleanout, Kelowna’s First Ladies Fashion Flea Market will be held April 26 from 10am-3pm at the Sunplex at 1155 Ellis St.  There will be over 70 tables with gently used ladies clothing, shoes, and accessories.  All will be available for sale directly from the flea market vendor. Grab something new to you, save money, and help support Kelowna Women’s Shelter and Soles4Souls. Georgie Girl, a local vintage consignment store, will be there with their vintage tickle trunk and photo booth set up, where you can get a “Snap in the Hat.”  The $5 entry fee will give you a chance to win some amazing door prizes and the first 200 shoppers through the door will receive a reusable gift bag filled with treats from local sponsors.

Outdoor lighting – your own personal light show You have spent hours in your backyard planting, trimming, etc., so you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor . As the sun sets, (and you are not ready to go back inside your home yet), your outdoor lights automatically turn on. Your own personal light show illuminates the colours of flowerbeds, tree bark, and glistening water patterns of pools or

waterfalls. Light reflects off your home’s stonework, and illuminates your favourite perennial. It quietly captures your eye’s attention as the night-lights dance with

the evening darkness. Your backyard can become a functional work of art – at night – with outdoor pathway, accent, deck and stair lights. Outdoor lights ensure safe, easy navigation of entrance and walkways. They are seen around the edge of your property as an excellent security measure against break-ins. A good quality, well-installed outdoor lighting system can not only enhance security, but also increase the resale value of your home. Transform your existing patio, deck or pool area into a retreat that you will love. Buying a costly designer patio set can lose their luster by next season. Why not invest in a new lighting scheme that

will provide light to be enjoyed from both inside and outside of your home spring, summer, autumn and winter for 20 years or more? Beauty on a Budget. “Creating a beautiful landscape need not be expensive. Our unique lighting designs offer both creativity and functionality. With as little as three to five quality lights - each with a 15 year warranty - our customers are able to enjoy and afford a backyard lighting package.” Suggests Jordy Olsoff, owner, Artistic Lighting Design - Kelowna. Add light, not energy. Good lighting uses less energy than an ordinary yard light. Using low voltage LED lights, energy costs are minimal. One

LED light can last up to 40,000 hours or over 12 years of average nightly use. This, combined with remote controls, automatic timers and photo cells make for an efficient and easy to operate lighting system. Outdoor lights to match your personal style. “The idea of enhancing your outdoor environ-

ment to reflect your personal style is very popular, especially because everyone wants to spend more time outside. We offer all types of lights to fit your style. Designs that add colour and interest with different glass choices, unique castings, nature-inspired shapes and architectural elements.” Says Jordy.

Light up backyards and businesses. Outdoor lighting not only shines in residential backyards, but also proves to be an essential tool to highlight corporate outdoor signs, building exteriors, restaurant patios and other public spaces such as walkways and parks. Complimentary Consultations. “We are

happy to provide outdoor lighting complimentary consultations to residents or businesses in the Okanagan Valley. Check out our website artisticlightingdesign.com or call us at 250-864-5483 to book your appointment. If you have thought about lighting your yard or business, now is the time.

(NC) As the seasons change, so do our taste buds. So if you find yourself cleaning out the heavier comfort foods of winter, like spaghetti and stews, to make room for lighter fare, why not go the extra mile? Donate all the unopened items to your local food bank. In fact this spring, all of the Loblaw banner stores across Canada are making it even easier for us to do this with its participation in the Extra Helping National Spring Food Drive. Most of us don’t realize that we have many of the most needed items identified by Food Banks

Canada right in their own kitchens. Foods such as peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, canned fish, meat and lentils, whole grain cereals, pasta sauces, canned soups and stews, as well as macaroni and cheese are great items to donate. For those who want to do more than donate their de-cluttered items, take a look at the Extra Helping logo on the shelves that sell President’s Choice and no name products. The logo identifies the items most needed by food banks. Share and inspire others by tweeting about your donation #extrahelping.

Garden like a pro Target the right tools: Chose lightweight tools that require less energy to maneuver and get rakes or hoes with extra-long, extendable handles to avoid excessive strain. Also, invest in a small stool or bench to cut down on the need for constant bending and kneeling. Watch the weather: If you suffer from lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, watch the weather report and avoid working outside when pollen and pollutant levels are high - these can trigger a serious lung attack. Watch for signs of a lung attack, like increased coughing, shortness of breath wheezing, or unusual changes in phlegm. See your physician if you notice worsening symptoms and also ask if your medication dosages need an adjustment. Head out of the heat: Avoid gardening during the peak hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., when the sun is at its strongest and humidity at its highest. If you must be out during that period, plan to work in the shade and drink plenty of fluids. Also, wear a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 that protects against both UVB and UVA rays.

INTERIORS

Developing a love of gardening can be a great way to plant the seed for a healthier lifestyle. The many benefits of a green thumb include consistent exercise, reduced stress and better mental health. In fact, a recent study conducted in Sweden found regular gardening can cut the risk of a heart attack and stroke and prolong life by as much as 30 per cent among a 60plus age group. For those with chronic health conditions, gardening can be an ideal low-impact exercise done at your own pace. But, before you pull on your work gloves, keep the following tips in mind:


B6 www.kelownacapnews.com

SUMMER PROJECTS

To increase home resale value Assessing the best return for your investment is paramount when undertaking home improvement projects. This means putting a priority on the jobs that are likely to be more valuable than others.

“Summer is an ideal time to get outside and invest your time, money and resources in a project that is going to pay back when it comes time to sell your home,” says Ralph Steven, a broker with Royal LePage Atlantic. He recommends investing in these top five outdoor home improvements: 1 Build a deck or patio. A deck or patio not only adds visual interest and enjoyment, it is also

a way to add to the resale value of your home. There are many designs and approaches to consider so start with a trip to your local library to research ideas  Be sure to check your municipal building requirements as a building permit may be required for decks above a certain size and height. 2 Install a sprinkler system. On average, homeowners use 50 per cent more water than ne-

cessary on their lawns. This increases hydro bills and may subject your basement to seepage and your garden from damage from over watering. Automatic lawn sprinkler systems are designed to allow proper irrigation through timing and even water distribution. You could save money in the long run. 3 Landscape your property. Landscaping is a great way to add visual

interest to an outdoor living space. Whether planning a garden or building a pond, landscaping often results in a significant return on your investment. However, always consult a trained professional before tackling a landscaping project to ensure that your project has all the elements of a professional project. 4 Build or replace a fence. Defining the limits of your property is important for a variety of reasons, including privacy, security and safety. Considering your specific needs will help you to choose the right fence. Ultimately, the fence has to

fit with how you use your yard. 5 Re-shingle a tired roof. A strong, durable roof is an essential component of your home’s overall health and functionality. If your roof is showing signs of wear, such as raised shingles or water seepage, choosing a qualified roofing contractor is a good first step. If you decide to do the job yourself, you’ll want to estimate the materials required accurately, consider disposal options for the old shingles, and ensure that you have plenty of hands available to make light work of a rigorous one-day job.

Whether you like to cook or just to eat, a vegetable garden can be the perfect addition to your yard. Situate it in a sunny place, raise the beds so you can start growing food early in spring, then keep planting all summer long so something fresh is always ready to harvest. The following tips will help you make the best of the seasonal changes that affect your vegetable garden. Spring is a wonderful time for succulent, tender lettuces, spinach, and asparagus. In summer, you can pick juicy tomatoes and fruity ripe peppers. And in fall, salad gardening time returns with great radishes, carrots, and more lettuce. Produce late fall, winter, and early spring lettuce by growing extra-hardy varieties such as Arctic King or North Pole, and creating sheltered planting places for them: Raised beds covered with heavy-duty floating row covers can provide protection from frosts and light freezes in early to mid-spring and mid- to late fall, or even winter in mild climates. Cold frames, heated by the sun, make it possible to grow lettuce early in spring and later in fall or winter. Cold frames are translucent rectangular boxes, about 2 feet wide, 4 feet long, and 18 inches high. The top is hinged to open so you can tend plants inside or cool the cold frame on mild, sunny days. Plant seeds or seedlings of lettuce in the frame and shut the lid to hold in the heat. Use water-filled tepees around tender vegetables for protection from the cold. You can buy inexpensive plastic sheets of connected tubes that, when filled with water, form self-supporting walls around seedlings. The clear walls allow sun to penetrate to the plant inside while the solar-heated water stays warm into the night. Mulch asparagus every spring with several inches of compost or decayed livestock manure. Asparagus, a greedy feeder, will use all the nutrients it can get its roots on and grow that much better for it. By mulching in the spring, you can fertilize, help keep the soil moist, and reduce weed seed germination all in one effort. The shoots that arise through the mulch will grow especially plump and succulent. Extend the fall harvest season for crops such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli with a warm coat of straw. Although it may never be fashionably chic, straw does trap heat effectively. Put bales or piles of straw around the plants, leaving the south side open to the warm sun. Thus treated, these naturally frost-tolerant plants may stay in good condition deep into fall, or even into winter in warmer climates.

Replace lawn with MULCHED SHRUBBERY BY GWEN STEELE, CONTRIBUTOR A very pleasant, easy-care alternative to lawn is a mixed planting of shrubs. Over 30 years ago, I was in a delightful backyard filled with bird song. The whole area was planted with shrubs and small trees chosen to give food and shelter to many species of birds. All the bare ground was covered with woody mulch, including the meandering paths that enticed me to explore. There were a few rustic seats to sit on and some subtly placed birdbaths and birdhouses. Although it was in the middle of a busy city, this backyard was a peaceful haven. It felt very large because I couldn’t see all of it as I wandered about. When I looked down from a second storey balcony, I was astonished to discover it was just a standard-sized city lot. I’ve always thought how fascinating it would be to live beside that garden and watch as it changed through the seasons: spring blossoms, summer seeds, fall colours, snow and hoar frost on the winter branches. What birds and pollinating insects would come? The biodiversity of plant material would certainly bring many different garden visitors to feed and nest. This oasis could replace a front or back lawn anywhere. The plant database on www.okanaganxeriscape. org lists a wide variety of water-wise shrubs and small trees of varying sizes, bloom times, foliage colours. ‘Food for birds’ can be selected under special features. These shrubs can be put on an irrigation system that only waters the plants, leaving the surrounding area dry, thus discouraging weed growth. By mulching the planting with two to four inches of bark mulch or wood chips or compost such as Glenmore Grow, soil moisture will be retained and weed

growth suppressed. When planting the ‘shrubbery’ space plants so they can grow to their mature size without crowding one another, overgrowing walkways, or being squashed against buildings. Also check for clotheslines, power lines and views that you don’t want to obstruct. The goal is to minimize pruning (work) and allow shrubs to grow to their full glory. If you are removing lawn to create this shrub garden, the fast method is to rent a turf cutter. The removed turfs can be stacked (soaking each layer) and

covered with soil. They need to stay moist to rot. If there are a lot of perennial weeds in the lawn, it is best to take the turfs to the landfill compost. To give the shrubs a good start, work in compost, well-rotted manure, Glenmore Grow or Ogogrow before planting. Shrubs will all need regular watering until they are growing well and have established a good root system.

Just breathe

Clean air is essential for good health. As Canadians, we spend close to 90 per cent of our time inside, so the quality of our indoor air is particularly important. If you’re cleaning or tackling a home improvement project, you may be using products that contain chemicals that can be released into the air, such as cleaning products, paints and varnishes or glue. Good ventilation is very important whenever you are using products containing chemical substances, especially if they are labelled with warning symbols. Remember to bring in fresh air whenever possible. This will help reduce pollutants that can accumulate to levels that might pose health and comfort problems. Use kitchen and bathroom fans vented outside to help remove pollutants directly from the rooms where they are created. Consider installing an air exchange unit. Remember to change the filters regularly, as recommended by the manufacturer.

How to pinpoint the right paint finish for each room

Here the walls are painted with Benjamin Moore’s Normandy in Aura Waterborne Interior Paint in a matte finish, with a satin finish on the doors and trim, for a monochromatic look.

When refreshing your home with paint, choosing the perfect colour is not the only consideration to be made. A growing trend among designers, now being adopted by homeowners, is selecting a paint finish that complements the aesthetic look and the functionality of the space. Sharon Grech, the colour and design expert for Benjamin Moore, offers practical tips on how-to choose the best finish for any room: For the bathroom: The most popularpaint finish for any room is a matte

finish, as it does not reflect light and offers excellent coverage against small cracks or bumps on the walls. A key consideration however is that humidity can have detrimental effects on paint in the bathroom. To solve

this, designers recommend Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa, since

it offers mildew resistance against a steamy environment. “The extreme coverage and durability means walls can easily be washed, while the colour and beautiful matte finish stays intact,” Grech points out. “It’s specially formulated by our company to lock out moisture and keep it from penetrating and streaking the film.” For the kitchen: For high traffic areas like the kitchen, it’s imperative to have a finish that will stand-up against scrubbing, but also give off a subtle glow and depth. A satin finish offers a smooth even look with a slight sheen, so it works well for well-lit rooms like the kitchen. For the children’s room: Kids will be kids, which means anything

that can get dirty, will get dirty, including their bedroom walls. In this case, a pearl finish is preferred and is even considered “childproof” by Grech. A pearl sheen has a smooth, less porous surface, so it’s less likely to absorb stains while remaining extremely easy to clean. For trim and doors: These areas tend to collect dust easily, so choosing a gloss finish is recommended, as dust is less likely to stick compared to a matte finish.A designer trick that is ontrend for spring is going monochromatic: choosing one wall colour and continuing the colour on the trim and doors, only changing the sheen, for a clean, streamlined look, as shown in this photo. To really go bold, use a gloss finish throughout for a contemporary look with a reflective quality.

Prepping before you start to paint Clear the room, gather all of your supplies, and lay out your drop cloth. Scrape off any loose paint, if needed. Remove any nails from the wall and spackle any holes or imperfections. Sand smooth. Clean the walls and trim, if needed. Dust along the baseboards, windows, and doorways with a damp cloth. Caulk along the trim, if needed. Tape off the room if you like to use painter’s tape.

10 tips

www.kelownacapnews.com B9

to help you get the

MOST

out of your garden

1. Let all your planning ahead be for your plants; a year ahead for annuals, two years ahead for the biennials, an indefinite number of years ahead for the trees.

2. Walk through your garden and lawn areas to scout for insects and diseases at least once per week. If they are caught early, problems are easier to treat.

3. Try to get a plant in the right place the first time around. Given the proper conditions, the plant will be happy and you’ll save yourself a lot of transplanting work.

4. Never plant trees that will become large with age too close to your house. 5. Consider your garden private territory. Critics are not welcome! Be honest about what you want, and don’t be concerned with what others may see. If you like woody plants, design a four-season shrub border. Besotted with peonies? Make a peony walk. Grow plenty of what you love; you don’t need an excuse for excess. Are there ever too many rose petals? 6. Set your lawn mower blades at 7.5 centimetres or higher, and al-

low your lawn to go dormant during periods of drought. 7. Light in a garden is a quarter of the battle. Another quarter is the soil of the garden. A third quarter is the skill and care of the gardener. The fourth quarter is luck. Indeed, one might say that these were the four Ls of gardening, in the following order of importance: Loam, Light, Love and Luck. 8. Don’t be afraid of change. Gardens, and gardeners, are always

evolving. It’s part of the process so step in boldly and revamp that rockery, yank out those overgrown shrubs or transform that border into a veggie garden, a pond, a knot garden—wherever your imagination takes you. 9. Always spend five minutes doing some warm up stretches and bends before undertaking strenuous garden work, and never do one task for too long at a time. 10. Climbers are among the most use-

ful plants in any garden. They take up little ground space, and they can be employed for many purposes: to clothe a boring fence, to scramble over a dead tree, to frame an archway, to drape a wall, to disguise a shed, or to climb lightly onto a pergola. They demand comparatively little attention, once they have taken hold of their support, maybe a yearly pruning or a kindly rescue if they have come adrift in a gale.

What’s your garden personality? It is true that the plants, flowers and accessories we choose for our garden say a lot about our individual personalities. For example, the well-ordered European gardens are for the elegant traditionalist. Embracing the whimsical feeling of an English country garden evokes the carefree and outgoing. And the serenity of a contemporary, Japanese-style space is for the Zen-inspired calm urbanite. If you can see your personality instantly, here from Home Depot, is

the way to create it: Elegant European style For those who enjoy formality and classic symmetry, focus on clean, simple structures, such as a four-square or knot-garden design. Create a centre path laid in stone, gravel or cobblestones with an aged appearance, radiating away from your house. Make separate garden sections by creating additional off-shooting paths. Outline the beds with low, solid evergreen hedges or clipped topiary. Fill the beds with fragrant roses, violets and lavender - even herbs such as rosemary. Where the paths meet, add a statue or water feature, such as a fountain, low pool or pond edged in concrete or stone. Country-style charm Create your own English-country charm by choosing plants in a variety of upbeat colours, such as foxgloves, columbines, daisies, lilacs, lilies and pansies, and planting them in curved beds. Create a snack-

ing ground for butterflies and birds with clusters of cornflowers and sunflowers. Add a white trellis of climbing ivy, and lush, wisteria or trumpet-vine-filled lattice and make a path with stepping-stones. You can also create an English garden using strategically placed containers and planters, either in bright plastics or painted pots that add to the riot of colour. Urban Zen Contemporary gardens focus on natural and irregular forms to help achieve peace and harmony. Focus on minimal and seemingly random rock placements, mass plantings of easy-care grasses, and multiple water features. Strategically placed Japanese black pines or red maples, stone bridges and slab seats are places for quiet contemplation. Achieve this garden style in small spaces using simple pots and containers, ornamental grasses, a portable waterfall and bamboo accents. You will be rewarded with a slice of nature that brings calm and beauty to your life.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 Capital NewsC Household chores are a never-ending reality of life. In fact on average, women spend more than two hours a day on household activities – and yet there’s always something still to clean when keeping up with kids, pets and a hectic schedule. For a tidy sparkling home in no time, why not tackle your dirtiest rooms with a few quick tips? For example, start by pumping yourself up with a ‘cleaning playlist’ to make chores more entertaining? If you’re lacking motivation, nothing will get you off the couch faster than a rockin’ sound-

Quick tips to come clean in your dirtiest rooms track. It can also be fun to time yourself during tasks; you may be surprised

to see that most of the chores listed below can be completed in 10 minutes or less. Ready – set – start cleaning: Kitchen Dishwasher Duty Once a week, shake baking soda on a damp sponge and wipe around the machine’s edges to remove stuck-on food or stains. To clean the inside, run an empty cycle with Dishwasher Magic, a product designed to kill bacteria like E.coli. During cold and flu season, add a quarter-cup of bleach to the regular dish cycle to kill bacteria. The dishes will be safe and sanitized after the rinse cycle is finished. Zap the Sponge We all know that sponges can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Disinfect yours every night by squeezing excess water out and microwaving it on high for a minute. When it’s worn and smelly, re-

place with a new one. Disinfect the Sink A sparkling sink becomes your kitchen’s benchmark for hygiene and tidiness, says the management at Moen, a leader in quality faucets. New this year, for example is the popular Walden pullout faucet which has Microban antimicrobial protection – built in to the faucet finish – to inhibit the growth of stainand odour-causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Refrigerator Refresh It’s important to make sure your refrigerator is always clean and odourless, especially if you are expecting guests. One trick to get rid of smells is to open a canister of oatmeal and place it in the fridge for a few days to absorb any unappealing odours. Bathroom Scour the Shower Showers are also a breeding ground for bacteria and mildew – feasting on body oils and soap scum. Make shower doors shine by rubbing a teaspoon of lemon oil on glass shower doors twice a month, this will cause water to bead up and roll off. Or, try a product called Rain-X Original Glass Treatment, a car-care item made to keep rainwater off your wind-

shield. Use it twice a year. For easy maintenance, after each shower, clean the

stall or tub and tiles with a squeegee. Spotless Sinks After your family finishes brushing their teeth or shaving, use a dry terrycloth hand towel on the mirror and bathroom faucets to wipe away spots of lather so they won’t build up. For a spotless fixture around the clock, Moen suggests their Ashville bathroom faucet featuring Microban antimicrobial protection. The faucet is available in the company’s trademark Spot Resist Brushed Nickel finish, which resists fingerprints and water spots to maintain the brilliance of the fixture. Additional details at moen.ca. Living Room Eliminate Pet Hair If you’re having a difficult time removing pet hair from furniture and other fabric surfaces, put on a wet rubber dishwashing glove and wipe your hand over surfaces. The hair will stick right to it. Front Entrance Control Clutter Mount a plastic or cloth shoe rack inside your front-entry closet door, and use it to stash all kinds of living and family room miscellany—toys, hats, gloves, magazines, etc. You can even designate one of the pockets for mail you’re not sure whether to save or toss. Cleaning the home doesn’t have to be a strenuous task. By creating a checklist of key items to tackle routinely, you’ll easily combat the dirtiest rooms.

How to plant and rake without the ache

Celebrate the season with elegant and affordable outdoor updates

Patio season is upon us, which means hosting family and friends for warm-weather gatherings and barbecues. Don’t fret; outdoor events don’t have to break the bank. With just a bit of creative vision and DIY savvy, you’ll have an al fresco affair to remember in no time at all. Sensational seating Is your furniture looking a bit battered and worse for wear from too much exposure to the elements? Not to worry. Outdoor-durable spray paint can revive your wicker or wood seating for many summer seasons to come. It’s simple to create sensational seating; just be sure the surface is clean, dull and dry. It offers quick and easy results – and dries in 10 minutes or less, so you will have more time to stage the rest of your patio arrangement. ELEGANT AMBIANCE Once your seating is set, create eye-catching centrepieces to welcome your guests. No need to head to the store, as items around your home such as forgotten knick knacks or candlestick holders can easily be spray painted in vibrant colours to complement your newly revitalized furniture. Finish up your tablescape for upcoming dinner par-

Winter takes a toll on your garden, but spring takes a toll on the gardener. Gardening season and back pain often go hand in hand, but positioning your body correctly reduces the strain on muscles and joints. Use these tips to enjoy your garden to the fullest throughout the season: Alternate your tasks. Switch between heavy chores such as digging and lighter, less physically demanding tasks such as planting. Do the “scissors” when you rake. Stand with one leg forward and one leg back when you rake. Switch legs and hands every few minutes. Kneel to plant and weed. Constant bending can put strain on your back, neck, leg muscles and joints, so kneeling is recommended. Use kneepads or a kneeling mat (with handles) to minimize the amount of bending required, and to make kneeling more comfortable. Keep your back straight. Change positions frequently. Make a point of changing position every 10 to 15 minutes. Move from kneeling to standing, from planting to digging. Pace Yourself. A minimum of three brief breaks each hour is recommended. Take a few moments to move around, stretch your muscles, have a drink or simply sit and relax. Spread the work over several days - you will still achieve the same great results.

Easy Comfortable Outdoor Living! ties with colourful cups, place mats and cloth napkins. Your guests will be in awe of your custom designs. LET THERE BE LIGHT Set the mood at your soirée with interesting accent lighting. Tiki torches are an easy and inexpensive solution to provide excellent perimeter lighting. Or, for a fun DIY project, purchase standard metal lanterns in various sizes at a local craft or hardware store – or even yard sales – and spray paint the exterior in various complementary colours. Finish by adding citronella candles to allow your creation to work double duty to keep pesky mosquitos at bay, ensuring your invited guests don’t bolt because of uninvited ones. TIME TO PARTY Don’t settle for lackluster libations – take time to create a festive offering of refreshing seasonal concoctions. In addition to traditional margaritas and daiquiris, try sweetening water with fresh fruits for an invigorating beverage that is perfect for the patio. And for the last detail, make sure you have music to get your guests grooving. Plug in a favorite playlist or use an app such as Pandora, to keep everyone guessing what will come on next and enjoy a warm summer night. You don’t have to spend much to create an elegant and impressive gathering. By paying attention to small, inexpensive details, you can easily transform a bland backyard, patio or deck into a stylish spot for entertaining that won’t leave you penniless at the end of the evening.
