Monster house builder forges homeowner’s signature

Wade Paterson

STAFF REPORTER

Raymond Kohut was surprised to see what was being built next to his Lakeview Cove Road property after he recently returned from a trip out of country. “A monstrosity of a house,” as he described it in a letter, was being constructed next door, and on May 5 he called the District of West Kelowna to find out why. Initially, district staff were confused. They had a letter on file, seemingly signed by Kohut, indicating his approval of a building height variance that council voted in favour of April 8. That variance increased the maximum allowable building height from nine metres to 13.4 metres for a parcel known as Lot 4, next door to Kohut’s house. Kohut went to municipal hall the next day and discovered his signature had been forged. James Zeleznik, general manager of Jazel Homes, sent an e-mail to Kohut May 6, admitting he had committed fraud. “I want to be completely up front with you and I was hoping to sit down with you sooner, as this has really been play-

He said this was the first time in his career that he has ever forged someone’s signature. It was a mistake, he said, adding, “the district is kind of passing the

blame.” “This is a horrible nightmare,” said Zeleznik. “Honestly, if you look at what happened, and really analyze how it happened, unfortunately I (got) stuck in the middle.” Zeleznik said the owner of Lot 4 bought the land knowing he could build a two-storey home. Zeleznik’s company presented a plan to the developers and was given approval to build the house, as the design met all of the developer’s guidelines. Zeleznik was later informed by the district there was a problem with the building permit. He said he was told there were height problems with Lot 4, as well as

Lots 5 and 6. He said he was told the quickest way to get the variance issued would be for the developer to get a letter signed by the owners of each lot that was most affected. The next day, the developer asked him to forward a letter on to Kohut, who lives on Lot 3, as well as the owner of Lot 4. In an e-mail dated March 20, Zeleznik explained the situation to Kohut and asked for his signature. Kohut responded to Zeleznik the same day, asking if the house on Lot 4 would end up towering over his. Zeleznik wrote back several e-mails that evening, sending Kohut site plans and designs. Zeleznik sent another e-mail March 28 with photos attached to give Kohut a visual example of how the neighbouring building would impact him. Kohut didn’t respond to any of these e-mails, but Zeleznik still opted to forge his signature. “Knowing that he had received all the plans and information, I signed his name and sent it to the developer, thinking that if

Popular festival switches dates Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Organizers of the annual Centre of Gravity sports and music festival in Kelowna say they are willing to pay more and revamp their event to keep the party going here. The festival, which has been running for seven years in City Park, will move from its traditional August long weekend dates this year to the preceding weekend. They have also agreed to increase the amount of live music presented on its stages during the festival, will spend more money on security and clean-up and will try to broaden the age-range of the people who attend with a wider range of musical acts. Typically, the event has drawn mainly young people. The plans for this year’s version of the popular festival were announced earlier this week in a report to city council. Councillors gave the event, and its organizer Wet Ape Productions, an enthusiastic thumbs up. “Kudos for taking on the extra costs,” said Coun. Maxine DeHart to representatives of the company that organizes the festival who were in the gallery to hear the report. The moves were made in response to council concerns about last year. This year, an estimated 8,000 festival goers are expected to pack into the downtown core and party both in the park and at a special “Centre of Gravity House” to be set up again at the nearby Kelowna Curling Club. Wet Ape will pay an extra $26,000 to improve security in and around city park. Some of the additional measures being taken include more police both inside and outside the grounds, extra clean up crews to pick up litter outside City Park and more bylaw officers out making sure people who cannot find hotel rooms in the city— local hotels are normally full on the long weekend— do not camp out in vehicles parked in residential areas around the downtown area.

▼ WESTBANK LIONS HALL

Acquaintance of arson suspect worried for her safety Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Amanda Nevdoff says she’s living in fear, wondering if she’ll face further reprisals from a former acquaintance she believes is bent on revenge. Nevdoff learned last week that her friend’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Kerry Cooper, was charged with arson relating to the Sept. 1, 2013, fire that extensively damaged the Westbank Lions Hall. The historic site was the venue she’d booked for her wedding, which was to take place the same day as the blaze. And Cooper, the boyfriend of her bridesmaid, was expected to attend as a guest. Cooper, 30, remains in police cus-

tody and the charge against him has yet to be proven in court, but Nevdoff said she has reason to believe its validity. “His behaviour is erratic,” she said, adding that since her wedding he’s shown anger toward her on social media sites and later, she alleges, through much more tangible acts. “It baffles me that he has so much anger toward me,” she said. Nevdoff said she thought they had a “cordial” relationship before the wedding, but she never cared much for Cooper, who had constant blowups with his girlfriend at the West Kelowna mobile home park where they all lived. “They were constantly arguing in the house, or even outside, and it was loud enough that the whole neigh-

bourhood could hear,” she said. “The whole neighbourhood was freaked out by him.” Nevdoff advised her friend to split from Cooper, but the relationship continued in an on-again off-again fashion and she washed her hands of the matter. She told her friend that she was welcome to bring Cooper to the wedding, that was waylaid by the inferno. “That whole day was pretty wild,” she said, adding that it ended up being amazing thanks to the community stepping up and offering her an alternate venue. But, the positivity of that occasion was muted in the months that followed. In the days after the inferno gutted the hall, a mutual friend referred Nev-

doff to what’s believed to be Cooper’s Facebook page. There, he posted a series of comments, and news footage of the fire along with the caption, “haha f*** u Mandy.” And, she and her family allege that in the months since the wedding, Kerry has repeatedly lashed out at them, volleying threats in their direction and even going so far as to slash one family member’s car tires, repeatedly. She claims police are aware of these acts, though no charges have been laid against Cooper for them. Now he’s been charged with arson, she feels a modicum of relief, though not entirely. “It’s good he’s been arrested, but we don’t know when he’ll be released,” she said.

“We have no idea what he’ll do.” She doesn’t want to stay in her Boucherie Road home, but with a young child at home and a baby on the way, mobility is not in the cards. “I don’t know what we’ll do,” she said. The fire that engulfed the Westbank Lions Community Centre started around 8 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 1, and quickly spread through the original wooden hall portion of the structure, which dates back to 1928, as well as the added on portions. The entire building was renovated in 1980 when it was moved back from its original position nearer to the road and the addition was completed. Damage was estimated in the ballpark of $1 million. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

had any monetary gain in the outcome of the approval for a variance, other than the allowance to build the custom home he had been contracted to build for the owner of Lot 4. He said he is curious why the District of West Kelowna didn’t make a better effort to contact Kohut regarding the variance application. According to Zeleznik, they simply dropped a notice on Kohut’s doorstep, which he didn’t receive until he returned from overseas. After Mayor Doug Findlater learned of the issue May 6, he called for a reconsideration of the resolution passed April 8. “This whole thing is really a mess,” said Findlater. He said this was only the second time he has issued a reconsideration during his time as mayor. “I felt it was appropriate because we received information that some of the documentation we received was basically

forged, concerning a letter of support, when in fact the resident involved is vociferously opposed,” said Findlater. “We rely on the public process…so to have something come in that’s forged, really throws our process into some disarray.” Coun. Rick de Jong said he was happy the mayor brought the issue back to council for reconsideration. “To get fraudulent information to base a decision on is somewhat unsettling, regardless of how it all transpired,” said de Jong. Nancy Henderson, general manager of development services, said staff’s recommendation to issue the variance in the first place had a lot to do with Kohut’s letter of support, considering he has a house on the property most affected by the change. Although Kohut was initially strongly against the variance, he changed his tone in a letter sent to

the district May 11. “The work completed to date is substantial and (to) tear this down would in fact be a hardship and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention lost jobs in the community and an eye sore for months to come while this happens,” wrote Kohut. “Although I am still not overjoyed at such a huge variance, I would say now to leave the variance in place and return to business allowing the construction of (the) home on Lot 4.” Despite Kohut’s change of heart, council unanimously voted to defer reconsideration, with the intention of putting it on the agenda of the May 27 meeting. Zeleznik said construction on Lot 4 has stopped since learning of council’s decision to defer reconsideration. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

EXAMPLES of signs the Regional District of Central Okanagan will deploy to

encourage dog owners to pick up after their pets in public places.

Humorous sign campaign aimed at dog owners

The Central Okanagan Regional District is using humour to get more area dog owners to scoop the poop their pets leave behind. New signs are going up along the popular Mission Creek Greenway recreational trail, and will find their way into many regional parks over the coming weeks. They use light-hearted messages to encourage owners to not only pick up after their pets but also to keep their pets on a leash.  Some of the signs say: • “If your dog poops and you don’t scoop…but nobody sees you…does that mean it won’t stick to the bottom of my shoe?” • “Attention Dog guardians: Please pick up after your dogs. Attention dogs: Grrr, bark, woof.  Good dog.  Thank you!.” • “Make sure your dog doesn’t leave anything behind!  Catch our drift?” RDCO communications officer Bruce Smith said while picking up after your dog and keeping the animal on a leash are required by the regional responsible dog ownership bylaw, the regional district believes a light-hearted, message will have more impact, resulting in more dog owners controlling their pets in public places.  “We all know that dog poop is a nuisance that can be easily avoided simply by carrying a bag and using it to pick up after your pet, then disposing of it in the proper manner,” said Smith.  “Having a dog on a leash of two metres or less is a bylaw requirement as it provides a handler with greater control over their animal and less opportunity for conflict with other

residents.” Smith added dog owners who fail to clean up after their pets don’t do any favours for those who do and can give all dog owners a bad name. “Dog poo left behind in parks, on boulevards and sidewalks and on other people’s property is one of the most common complaints we and our municipal partners hear about,” he said. “Running a close second is owners who don’t have control over their dogs.” This summer, the regional district will also

introduce its Dog Ambassadors and volunteer Parks VIP Patrollers.   “Our goal with these programs is to provide an opportunity for further awareness and information to dog owners and park users and for positive interaction and encouragement of responsible behaviours.” The regional district has provided information about dog licensing and the bylaw on its website at regionaldistrict.com/dogs. It also includes information about what to do if you lose, or find, a dog.

With the first year of the Report Impaired Drivers to 9-1-1 program in the books, those involved say the program has been a success. The RID 9-1-1 initiative was launched last year by Kelowna RCMP, City of Kelowna and MADD the Central Okanagan chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. “In the first year since the signs were installed, we have seen a 19.8 per cent increase in the number of 911 calls reporting possible impaired drivers,” reported Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. “These are positive results and we look forward to seeing more public participation during the second year of the program”. Police encourage all motorists to call 911 if they suspect another person is driving under the influence of alcohol. Drinking and driving remains one of the leading causes of crashes, and it’s totally preventable. “We are encouraged by these results, and applaud the community for their efforts in keeping the roads safe by calling 911 and having suspected impaired drivers removed from the roads before they cause crashes,” added Jeff Robinson, vice-president of the Central Okanagan

MADD chapter. In December 2012, the MADD chapter in partnership with the Kelowna RCMP successfully launched the first phase of the Campaign 9-1-1 program by placing clingon stickers on RCMP cruisers. This was followed up with 12 road signs promoting the call 911 message being installed in various locations throughout the community in April 2013. Since then, reporting

of dangerous driving behaviours was up 193 more times in 2013 than the previous year.

t’s tomato planting time in the Okanagan, one of the easiest and productive edible plants to grow in a vegetable garden. The tomato can be grown in garden plots, in raised gardens and containers. The only criterion needed for success is some decent soil, a nutrient source, a little water and most importantly plenty of sunshine. The fact that the Okanagan has plenty of sun and heat makes for a perfect climate to grow tomatoes as we are famous for the commercial crops that

Weather sensing irrigation systems Imagine an irrigation system that adjusted itself to the weather conditions for your area automatically. It would be great to no longer have to run back and forth to your irrigation controller to turn the watering time up or down dependent on the weather, or off in the instance of rain. You could stop worrying about whether or not you had to change it back or turn it back on if the controller could adjust all the settings without constant intervention. Good news, anybody can transform an automatic irrigation system into a high-efficiency water resourcemanagement center with the addition of a climate sensing component addition. There are many models on the market to turn select irrigation controllers into a weather smart controller. The weather sensing component monitors current air temperature, solar radiation and precipitation. This data is transmitted at regular intervals throughout the day to the receiver module which is linked directly to your controller. Each day, the climate sensing component calculates and adjusts the programmed station run time duration to the amount required for the next watering cycle. If you have any questions about climate sensing components or any other question about your irrigation system, stop by to visit us – we are always happy to help you.

thriving in its location on Bernard Avenue in downtown Kelowna. The tomato has an interesting history. Like all domestic plants it comes from a species of a naturally occurring Genus, in this case the nightshade family Solanum lycopersicum. Because of the toxicity of many species of nightshade, the tomato was considered poisonous and only used as an ornamental for many years. The species originates in South America and was first used as a food in Mexico. After the Spanish Inquisition, the tomato was introduced to Europe and the rest of the world. Imagine Italian cuisine without the tomato. The tomato was intro-

duced there in 1548 and soon became a staple in the diet. It wasn’t introduced to Britain until almost 50 years later in the 1590s. Quite a difference in today’s world when even a virus can cross the ocean in a few hours. In about 1799, it was introduced to the Middle East and North Africa. The earliest reference to tomatoes being grown in British North America is from 1710, when herbalist William Salmon reported seeing them in what is today South Carolina. A man by the name Alexander W. Livingston was the first person who succeeded in upgrading the wild tomato by selecting seedlings that displayed the attributes he

was looking for and carefully saved the seeds. In 1870, he introduced a variety called Paragon, and then in 1875 he introduced one called Acme which is said to be the grandparent of many of our modern day varieties. So whether we are planting Beefsteak, Fantastic, Early Girl or Patio, they all can be traced back to that wild tomato in South America. If you haven’t grown a garden for years or perhaps ever, then I encourage you to pop in a few tomato plants this season.

Lakeshore traffic diverted for road and bridge upgrade Work is scheduled to start next week on the latest major road project in Kelowna. The $11-million rebuild of a stretch of Lakeshore Road, from Lexington to Cook, will include replacement of the Lakeshore Road bridge. The work is scheduled to start May 20 and Lakeshore will be closed to motorists to accommodate the utility and bridge replacement. The work will also in-

clude: • upgrades to sanitary trunk, stormwater and water mains • construction of a multi-use pathway and commuter bike lanes • a new roundabout at Lexington Drive • improved Greenway trail-head access • new sidewalks, streetscaping and landscaping • underground shallow utilities on the east side of the road, except electrical • conduit for future underground of electrical. The work will result in

improved traffic flow and safety, says the city. The primary detour route via Lexington and Cook roads will be clearly marked and traffic safety personnel will be on site directing traffic. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained, according to city hall. Transit stops on Lakeshore Road north of Lequime and south of Cook will be closed and temporary bus stops will be located at Cook and Lakeshore Road, Gordon Drive and Cook Road and Gordon Drive and Lex-

ington Drive. The No. 1 Lakeshore transit route will be detoured in and out of the Mission Recreation transit exchange via Gordon Drive and Cook Road to and from Lakeshore Road. The road improvements will also include upgrades to bus stops located in the project area. Kelowna transit routes and schedules can be viewed at www.bctransit. com/regions/kel.

Experience may trump youth in many instances but for two Okanagan College students, their fresh ideas and resourcefulness resulted in a social media home run for a local charity. Okanagan College business administration students Kelly Stone and Arianne Summach started working with Inn from the Cold Kelowna as an assignment for their social entrepreneurship class. “The idea was to bring the importance of community service into the students’ education and show them how their skills can also benefit the not-for-profit sector,” said Okanagan College business professor Sheilagh Seaton. The students in Seaton’s class were able to choose from a number of proposed community projects. Stone and Summach chose to work with Inn from the Cold to promote its upcoming fundraiser Push to End Homelessness on June 14 because they felt the organization’s needs matched their expertise in marketing. Instead of simply promoting the event details—an Amazing-race style shopping cart challenge—the students de-

cided to bring a human face to homelessness. To do that they made a video featuring formerly homeless people talking about how it felt to be homeless. “We wanted to make an emotional connection between the viewers and the video’s subjects,” said Stone. One snag—the students didn’t know how to produce a video. But instead of going in a different direction or giving up, they advertised for a donation of video services via Internet. In no time, local production house Render Digital Media volunteered to make the video with them. Once it was complete, Stone and Summach created an aggressive social media campaign for the weeks leading up to the Push to End Homelessness event. So far, the inspiring video has been a tremendous success. It has had more than 3,000 views, which is more than double what Inn from the Cold’s social media efforts have produced in the past. What’s more, the students created a social media tool kit and cheat sheet for Inn from the Cold to use in their marketing efforts going forward. “We’re a

Trudeau not a chip off the old block Justin Trudeau promised, after being selected federal Liberal leader in 2013, that there would be open and democratic contests for Liberal nominations all across Canada. This was in contrast to previous Liberal leaders, notably Jean Chretien, who decided to appoint candidates in numerous ridings, rather than let local Liberal members actually select the candidate they wished to represent them. It all sounded good. But when the rubber met the road, and candidates were actually being selected, the true

facts about how candidates were chosen started to emerge. In one Toronto riding, where a byelection has just been called, Trudeau barred the wife of the former MP in that riding from running—in that riding, and in any other. No reasons, other than the fact that Trudeau had a “star” candidate in mind, seemed apparent. Last week, Trudeau announced that no one who opposed abortion would be allowed to seek a Liberal nomination across the country. This despite the fact that several current Liberal MPs are pro-

life (they were grandfathered), and several former pro-life members had considered seeking nominations. Trudeau declared that the matter of abortion is “settled,” despite the fact that there has been no abortion law since 1988 and an attempt to pass a new law, based on a Supreme Court decision, died on a tie vote in the Senate in 1990. It’s “settled,” in that politicians won’t consider a new law. But the public aren’t quite as one-sided on the issue. The Liberal Party supports abortion, and has endorsed it at a

recent policy convention. However, personal beliefs about abortion are often based on religious faith, and Trudeau in effect has said that people with that faith position are incomplete, and inadequate as candidates. It is another troubling attack on freedom, coming from the son of the prime minister who brought in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which explicitly guarantees Canadians freedom of religion. Trudeau the Younger has shown that freedom is only selectively guaranteed by his party.

CFUW helping women pursue the dream of an education

A

ctress Sally Field once famously blurted out at a movie awards show that if women were politically running the world, there would be no more wars because no mother wants to see her daughter or son march off to fight a war of questionable means and not return. Her comment related directly to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, but also spoke to the importance for women to get an education and not be subservient to a male-dominated political world. To that end, a group of Kelowna women university graduates are doing their part to help female students get a post-secondary education both locally and globally.

With education widely considered a key to eradicating poverty among women around the world being to get an education, the role played by the Canadian Federation of University Women is helping to meet that demand. The Kelowna chapter, which was started back in the 1960s, is affiliated to the International Federation of University Women started in 1919 after World War I by a group of women university graduates wanting to promote peace, international understanding and friendship. The local chapter has symbol-

ized those principles, helping to start groups like Friends of the Library and Social Planning Council which morphed into their own groups in time. The CFUW, Barry which currently has Gerding about 70 members in Kelowna, has continued to maintain its commitment to providing fiscal assistance to female students to pursue a post-secondary education, in particular those who face financial hardship to realize those dreams. Last year, the CFUW handed out $15,000 in scholarships and bursar-

▼ HOME BUILDING CENTRE

Closed building outlet perfect location for new West Kelowna district hall

To the editor: Sadly, the Home Building Centre at Bylands and Bartley roads in West Kelowna has closed down. - This property could sit vacant for years and years, becoming a local eyesore and a target for vandals. In the local retail economic climate, it will be very difficult to find another business tenant and so the tax loss caused by the continued vacancy of this building will be considerable. On the other hand, I do have another thought. The Home Building Centre sits in an excellent location, and is on land within the District of West Kelowna. It has a large yard out the back and plenty of parking. It is closer to the geographic centre of West Kelowna, al-

lowing fair access to all areas of the municipality. It is on a side road but has immediate and direct access to Highway 97. There are many businesses nearby, but it is not on an area with traffic congestion problems. Would it be possible to repurpose this building? Could it save the taxpayers having to spend enormous amounts on building a brand new town hall? Or, is it just easier to buy up houses and knock them down to build a monumental town hall? Perhaps it’s more fitting to shoehorn a building into a limited space and than moan about the lack of easy access and limited parking for years to come. With the unavoidable divided highway running through downtown Westbank,

it seems that a new civic building in any of that area will face intolerable traffic congestion. Even today, driving to a location on Main Street is difficult to negotiate due to the volume of traffic that is bottlenecked from McDonalds at Gellatly through to Paynters Market. I do not know the answers, but possibly re-purposing might just be the solution to our dilemma. Even if building a brand new town hall were necessary, this location would be an excellent one. I invite staff and council of West Kelowna to look into the amazing opportunity that the vacating of this building offers us. Heather Yeats, West Kelowna

Traffic deaths all too often due to speeding To the editor: Re: WorkSafeBC Should Add Work Commute To Stats, May 2 Capital News. I certainly understand Dr. Lovegrove’s contention that adding in the numbers of injuries and deaths that occur during worker commutes would increase the negative statistics for WorkSafeBC. He sites various road safety measures that we should all be aware of, talking about the team effort of driving instructors, traffic police, community planners, transport engineers, workers, employers—all very true. He talks about innovative ideas, monitoring and proactive safety programs. Again all have merit. The one thing that wasn’t mentioned specifically that factors in so many injury and fatality accidents is speed. This problem affects all people on the roads, whether we’re on our way to and from work or not.

It didn’t take long for my left Achilles tendon to act up for lack of stretching and going from zero to 60 (or more like zero to 30) in too short a time.  My training ended as abruptly as it started. I felt like getting back at it about a week before the event but the triathlete, Jake, argued against it.  “Stay in bed” was his advice, concerned “the old man” would have another injury that would eliminate my participation.  He had similar advice the morning of the event, advising me not to stretch because a non-stretcher like myself might pull something.

My lungs worked overtime the first section of the course, seemingly unable to take in enough air, but things settled down when one of our team members, an import from outside the office even older than me, had to hold back because of a work related foot injury. I, of course, held back with him in support and kept him hydrated with my Camelbak. I ended up with a bit of a “shiner” from bending down when a knee was coming up. And while I had this or that other bruise or abrasion, I was none the worse for wear the rest of the day and into the evening as we celebrated our team effort.  We deconditioned types knew that the

muscle pain “payback” would kick in the next morning and last for several days. The crawling through the mud under barbed wire, rope and net climbing, sand-bag carrying, tire dragging and other events must have been calculated to strain absolutely every muscle group because my entire body felt like I had been hit by a truck the next morning as the slightly torn muscle microfibers became inflamed and started their healing. It was a “good pain,” though. As hard as it was to drag myself out of bed, the pain that came with every movement meant I had done something with this body of mine that spends way too much time on its behind at a computer. It was almost a badge of honour to complain about how sore I was. No big deal, anyway—sore muscles completely resolve within a handful of days. My comparison to being hit by a truck doesn’t come from personal experience.   I’ve never, actually, been hit by a truck nor other vehicle though I have acted for many who have.  Anyone familiar with car crash injuries knows that it takes until the next day or so before the microfibre tears from most car crash injuries become inflamed and painful, just like with the microfibre tears from muscle overuse. The difference is that our bodies are designed to repair and rebuild after overusing our muscles, leaving us stronger.  That’s the whole point of muscle building training. In contrast, the destruction to tendons, ligaments and muscle tissues caused in car crashes often goes beyond the

threshold of what our bodies can recover from, leaving us permanently weakened and with pain that never goes away. When car crash victims are assessed at the scene of a crash, they feel just as fine as I did after completing the muddy obstacle course, but without the shiner, bruises and abrasions because seat belts are really good at preventing impact injuries. They don’t have any detectable injury, and regularly refuse a trip to the hospital. Then the pain kicks in the next morning. Sometimes the tissue damage is within the threshold level that the body can heal from and the pain is short-lived. Sometimes, it reaches just beyond, resulting in a lifetime of weakened and painful tissues. On learning how these “soft tissue injuries” work, would it be responsible for a news reporter to ever report that there were “no injuries” or “minor injuries” in a crash without first checking in on the victims the day, week, month, or year after a crash?  BC Ambulance Service representatives are directed by their media relations policy not to do so.  Our driving culture will not change if we are continually bombarded with media reports of crashes, irresponsibly reporting “no injuries” or “minor injuries,” leading us to believe that crashes don’t come with serious consequences.  How else could an injury potentially resulting in a lifetime of weakened and painful tissues be described except as “serious” or “potentially serious?” Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna. paul@hlaw.ca

Caregivers: Building a support network Family caregivers in Kelowna need help so the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. wants to show them where to find it. “Caregiving can be extremely challenging, both physically and emotionally,” said Carly Gronlund, the society’s support and education coordinator for Kelowna and the North/Central Okanagan. As the disease pro-

gresses, caregivers may be required to provide different types of support, from assisting with financial decisions to helping the person complete everyday tasks. It can become a 24-hour-a-day job. The society helps caregivers recognize that “people can’t ravel alone on a journey with dementia. “You and your family member will benefit greatly from the help

of those around you who care, including friends and family members. Tapping into a support network is vital,” Gronlund said. Kelowna residents who are supporting a person with dementia at home can find out how at a free workshop on Monday, May 26. Accessing Services, running from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Alzheimer Resource Centre, 307-1664

Richter St., will review strategies for accessing support through a variety of sources in the community, from getting help from family and friends, to navigating the formal health care system. The session will consider challenges that can arise when making the decision to access services and support, and offers strategies for working with service providers and

acting as an advocate. Seats are limited so pre-registration is required. Contact Carly Gronlund at 250-8600305 or email cgronlund@alzheimerbc.org. The workshops are free thanks to partial funding from the province and sponsorship support from Seacliff Foundation, Merck Canada Inc., Pfizer Canada Inc., Lohn Foundation, Djavad Mowafaghian Foundation, The Colin & Lois Pritchard Foundation, Al Roadburg along with individual donors. More information on coping with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias is available at www. alzheimerbc.org.

Follow city rules for draining pools, hot tubs The City of Kelowna wants to make sure local residents understand the proper procedure to drain water from a swimming pool or hot tub without placing a strain on the environment. Pool and hot tub owners are asked to direct the drainage at a low-flow rate over a long period of time, while salt water pools can drain directly into the sanitary sewer system. “If proper drainage is not possible, the water must be dechlorinated prior to being drained into the storm sewer system,” said Adrian Weaden, pump operations supervisor for the city. “Otherwise, the pool water containing disinfectants is released into Okanagan Lake and local streams untreated.” Water enters the storm sewer system through catch basins and flows directly into the lake and streams, while sanitary system water collection is treated at the city’s wastewater treatment facility before being released into the lake. People are encouraged to contact the city’s water quality department before draining their pool or hot tub to ensure they are draining into the correct system. Improper discharge of contaminated water can result in a fine of up to $2,000. For more information, call 250-469-8887.

CFL dream a big step closer for Briggs and Caron

Warren Henderson

STAFF REPORTER

Prior to this spring’s CFL Combine in Toronto, Jesse Briggs wasn’t being touted as a top tier prospect for the league’s annual draft. But after impressing all nine CFL teams in March with his athleticism and physical test scores, the 24-year-old Kelowna product suddenly became a much sought-after commodity. On Wednesday, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers expressed their confidence in the McGill Redmen linebacker by choosing Briggs in the second round—17th overall—of the 2014 CFL Draft. Briggs, who played

two seasons with the KSS Owls, was with his mom and brother in Montreal

WHEN I HEARD IT WAS WINNIPEG I HAD TO ADMIT I WAS PRETTY EXCITED. Jesse Briggs

when his name was announced during draft coverage on TSN. And Briggs was thrilled with the outcome. “It was a great night,” Briggs told the Capital News on Wednesday morning. “I would have been happy with any team, but

FORMER Kelowna Owls’ player Jesse Briggs, of the

McGill Redmen, was drafted Wednesday by the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

when I heard it was Winnipeg I had to admit I was pretty excited. They have a new coach there in Mike O’Shea, he was a great player for a long time in the league, and I just get a lot of good vibes from them. “I know they want

me,” he added, “because they traded up to get me. I’m really excited.” Briggs, who was named the Redmen’s defensive player of the year in 2013, has always had the pro football dream in the back of his mind, but it wasn’t until the last couple of seasons that playing in the CFL just might be a realistic goal. Redmen coach Clint Uttley said Briggs’ progress over the last season and half has been remarkable, to say the least. “Jesse has grown so much over the last year that he made himself into a CFL prospect,” Uttley said. “A gym rat with outstanding strength, he is a superb athlete who can run from sideline to sideline to make a play. “He possesses an outstanding football IQ. Highly competitive, Jesse brings a great attitude and effort every day. He is a very humble, selfless team player.” Briggs will go to Bombers’ training camp this month with every intention of making the CFL team, but he could also be returned for a fifth season at McGill. Briggs is clear on what option he prefers. “My goal is to make

the team this year, they want me to contribute on special teams right away and I’m prepared to do that,” said Briggs, who played two seasons at KSS for coach Roy Anderson. “They could send me back and say go back to school for one year, and that sure wouldn’t be the worst thing…but my goal is definitely to play in the CFL as soon as I can.”

MAX CARON

Just minutes before Briggs was chosen, former Okanagan Sun player and Concordia Stingers’ linebacker Max Caron was selected in the second round, 16th overall by the Calgary Stampeders. A native of Kingston, Ont., Caron played in 2008 and 2009 with the Sun, compiling 62 tackles and five fumble recoveries. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Caron, who has played four seasons at Concordia, was the CIS defensive player of the year in 2011. Former Sun head man Peter McCall, who coached Caron for two seasons, isn’t the least bit surprised by the progress the talented linebacker has made since leaving Kelowna. “Matt had one of those motors that never stopped,” McCall said. “He had a nose for at the ball, he’s an intelligent kid, and he worked so hard, you just knew if he stayed on the path he was on he was going to go somewhere. It’s nice to see that time has come for him.” Briggs and Caron will join their respective new teams for training camp at the end of this month.

“I wish for a cure for diabetes so that I will no longer have to have the insulin pump attached to my body all the time. My fingers hurt too, so I hope one day not to have to do finger pokes all the time.”

Athletics look to make move in PBL standings eighth, only to rally back for a 3-2 win in the bottom of the inning. “Although you’re only playing 48 games, every win is so crucial,” said Bailey. “I thought it was a good character win and good morale win, and I think that somehow over the last few seasons, that’s been the trademark of this team. It’s not over until it’s over. But what we do need is better starts to games.” The Twins wrapped up the series with a 5-2 win in the finale Sunday.

Kelowna K’Pow seals season with silver The Kelowna K’Pow capped off a memorable season of volleyball with a silver medal performance at the Canadian U18 boys club championship last weekend in Edmonton. Two weeks after claiming gold at the B.C. finals, the Kelowna Volleyball Club team was in fine form at the national

championship, as the local boys went on a serious playoff run. K’Pow defeated London 2-1 in the quarterfinals, then downed Manitoba’s top seed in the semi finals two straight. This put Kelowna on a collision course with Ontario’s No. 1 team, the Durham Attack, who had

KVC lost a close game one 25-23, but rebounded with strong defense in the second game. One rally went on for about 40 seconds and included some key digs by Isaac Smit and Jory Dickie and ended with a monster block by Adam Kern. K’Pow went on for a convincing 25-14 in Game. In the deciding game, K’Pow fell behind early and tried to claw back into the match. With Durham Attack leading 13-9, KVC closed the gap on a couple great attacks by Devon Cote and a Cole Hanson block to make it 14-12. On the final point, the Kelowna boys were stuff blocked and the ball hit the floor. Head coach Paul Thiessen reflected on a

The only two losses the Heat suffered came in the round robin and in the final, both to the Belligham Bash U15 girls team. Losing a round robin game forced the Heat to take the long way to the finals, first knocking off the 11th seeded Tri City Titans 17-4. Racquel Bennett hint a three-run homer while Niah La Roy scored three times. Gracie Barbour took home the pitching win. Next up was the No. 3 seeded South Delta ‘01 team. The girls turned a tight game into a route late scoring 10 runs in the final two innings to win 11-4. Gracie Barbour led the way scoring three runs and hitting a bases-loaded triple for three RBIs.

SPRINGATE, Dr. Gordon Leonard Vincent, P.Eng., MBA February 6, 1931 ~ May 9, 2014 Gordon died peacefully with his beloved wife, Joyce, by his side after a short struggle with pancreatic cancer. Gordon was a wonderful Dad to his children: Hilary (Wendy), Gordon (Charinee), Gregory, Charmaine (Mark), Chris (Cynthia), and Blair (Anne). He was a warm and welcoming Step-Dad to Joyce’s children, Jeffrey (Maureen) and Eileen (Carl). He was very proud of his grandchildren: Kelsey, Leah, Robyn, Georgia, Amanda, Riley, Solange, and Griffin and Richard and Elizabeth Church, and Reid Palmer. Gordon is also survived by brothers, Arnold and George; and sisters, Joyce and Ruth; as well as many nieces and nephews. Gordon is survived by Charlotte, mother of his children. Gordon was the son of Walter and Eleanor Springate, born in Montreal. He completed his Undergraduate Degree in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Physics at McGill University, his Master of Business Administration at Simon Fraser University and his Doctorate at Nova Southeastern University. Gordon’s work brought him from Toronto to Vancouver in 1957, then to Prince George in 1980, and finally to Kelowna in 1987 to be Dean of the Division of Applied Studies at Okanagan University College. Over the years he also instructed for Nova Southeastern University, City University, College of New Caledonia, Simon Fraser University and the Institute of Canadian Bankers. Gordon’s deep commitment to his community was evident in many organizations and activities where he donated his leadership skills and wisdom. He was committed to his position as Dean’s Warden at the Cathedral Church of St. Michael and All Angels; worked for many years with Scouts Canada, receiving the Canada 125 Medal for volunteer contributions; committed more than 55 years of volunteer instructing and leadership to the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons, being Chief Commander for Canada; founding President of the Westbank Toastmasters Club; Director for the Gellately Nut Farm Society; President of the Kelowna Probus Club and National President for Probus Canada; volunteer with Red Cross; member of the Rotary Clubs of Kelowna, West Kelowna, and Prince George; deeply involved with the Masonic fraternity, belonging to several concordant bodies, including the Shriners; Past President of the Association of the Professional Engineers and Geoscientists for British Columbia; and the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers. Shortly after Whistler Mountain first opened in 1966, Gordon purchased a lot at Whistler and built a large cabin with his own hands. When his children were young, Gordon taught each of his children to downhill ski and they have many fond memories of their time together on the slopes and at ‘the cabin’ at Whistler. Gordon was involved in their other sports, including being a hockey referee. Gordon will be remembered for his many contributions to Canadian society, his wonderful sense of humour, his sense of compassion and integrity, and for his commitment and generosity to his world. He will be greatly missed by his family. A memorial service will be held at the Cathedral Church of St. Michael and All Angels, 608 Sutherland Ave, Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 2 PM, with a reception to follow. If desired, a donation may be made to a charity of your choice in Gordon’s name. Arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services, (250) 860-6440. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.everdenrust.com

Andrew Allen

On April 7 and 8, twenty-five Ellison Elementary students from Grade 1-6 participated on stage with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Along with fifteen other SD#23 schools, they danced to the music of Camille Saint-Saens’ suite, “The Carnival of the Animals”. Our students did a fabulous job portraying the hens and roosters, while images drawn by all students were projected on the large screens to the audience. During the five shows over two days, thousands of students (including all other ELE students), teachers and parents enjoyed the performances. It was an amazing opportunity for our students to be able to showcase their talents and energy on the big stage.

On April 24, Ellison Elementary students once again had the opportunity to meet and hear singer, song-writer Andrew Allen, thanks to funding from the ELE PAC. Andrew, who is originally from Vernon but now lives in Los Angeles, spent an entire day in our school, before beginning his tour across Canada. His songs are currently on the radio, so many students were able to sing along with them. Andrew visited ELE last year, and had so much fun that he was eager and willing to come back again. Andrew spent time singing, answering questions and teaching the students how to write a song. Many parents came to join in the fun as the whole school was filled with his music - it was a great day!

ALL GRADE 6 STUDENTS FROM ELLISON ELEMENTARY

were fortunate to be able to attend their annual camping trip to Gardom Lake. At camp the students were given an opportunity to try archery, zip lining, high ropes, canoeing, and wall climbing. What a wonderful way to celebrate their elementary year before moving on to their middle school adventure next year!

Literacy Leaders Literacy Leaders help primary students master sight words, strengthen phonological awareness (isolation, blending, segmenting and deletion of sounds, rhyming), as well as improving their writing skills. The intermediate students leave these workshops with a sense of confidence, compassion and understanding of other learners, while still having fun.

GRADE 5 TEAM PLACE 2ND Twenty two schools around the district participated in the Battle of the Books Reading Competition. Students were given twenty-five questions, which were based on nine novels they were required to read. Our Ellison teams did amazing! We are so proud of these avid readers!

tainly find a way to shine all the same, maybe even working with their new stormy mystique. This recording is less about the finished product and more about the process of congealing, they say. “I think we learned a lot about coordination in the band doing this. Really, we’ve never had an experience recording. Even now, listening to the tracks, there’s quite a bit where we’re like ‘Oh, we could have done a little bit more of this, we could have done a little bit more of that,’” said Scott. For McGifford, stepping into the studio and working with sound engineer Mike Petersen offered a unique opportun-

Dustin McGifford favoured a name with “woods” in it for its organic, earthy vibe. His partner, Annie Scott, thought she heard him say “words” and threw out “honest” to go with it. Marry the two and you have Honest Woods, a new Kelowna band capable of bringing any room to its feet, whether it be full of partying snowboarders at Big White or equestrians at a Kelowna Riding Club show. And yet, they’re modest. “We started playing the open mic night at O’Flannigan’s and it really is what fostered any fan base we have,” said Scott, who grew up in Penticton and moved to Kelowna with her partner, McGifford, to pursue music. Initially rummaging through the local music scene’s free stage opportunities was just a way for her and McGifford to make friends, but they quickly became serious about forming a band, pairing with drummer Joshua Ertman, of Kelowna, last spring. They’re seasoned pros at winning attention. Aside from placing in the top 20 of the regional finals for the CBC Searchlight Competition over the winter, they took first place in the Talented Kelowna finals. Bringing down the house in polished black and red outfits as they danced from jazz to rock, Scott’s light English accent adding a delightful lilt to a rousing performance amid some

The prize brought with it more than accolades as it offered recording time to produce their first EP: Downpour. With six songs, including a live version of their favourite and first collaboration, Shy, it’s a well-thought-out inaugural effort, even if its title is a little ominous. The recording was named after a night musing in a bar as a rainstorm raged on the pavement outside and they all thought the selection was an apt moniker for a collaboration where it would seem success has virtually fallen in their laps.

enough, however, come their first show post-recording session, the clouds opened up. “It was a little ironic,” said Scott in a moment vaguely reminiscent of Alanis Morissette’s Isn’t it Ironic controversy. Whether it was irony or just a taste for rain, there is certainly a twisted humour in gamely naming what could very well prove the watershed recording of their blossoming career after a serious rainstorm, then having dark clouds follow the music thereafter.

Ertman wasn’t a major fan of their first big hit, Shy, but the studio time helped him find the elements in the song he could make sing, for example. It’s going to be critical knowledge as they step out onto the Landmark Events Festival Contest stage (regional events take place in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Kingston and Quebec City) to compete before Warner Music and Sony Records representatives.

Raymond Kohut was surprised to see what was being built next to his Lakeview Cove Road property after he recently returned from a trip out of country. “A monstrosity of a house,” as he described it in a letter, was being constructed next door, and on May 5 he called the District of West Kelowna to find out why. Initially, district staff were confused. They had a letter on file, seemingly signed by Kohut, indicating his approval of a building height variance that council voted in favour of April 8. That variance increased the maximum allowable building height from nine metres to 13.4 metres for a parcel known as Lot 4, next door to Kohut’s house. Kohut went to municipal hall the next day and discovered his signature had been forged. James Zeleznik, general manager of Jazel Homes, sent an e-mail to Kohut May 6, admitting he had committed fraud. “I want to be completely up front with you and I was hoping to sit down with you sooner, as this has really been playing on my mind,” wrote Zeleznik. “In pressure from the developer, I signed the letter on your behalf, thinking that you would respond back to me quickly anyway…I thought that I would hear back from you soon and that all would be OK.” He went on to write: “I have been in business for 25 years, and I know the importance of someone’s trust and my integrity, and this is why I feel so bad.” Zeleznik spoke to Capital News Wednesday.

WEST Kelowna council is reconsidering a building height variance it voted in favour of April 8 after a neighbouring property owner discovered his signature had been forged on a letter of support for the variance. said this was the first time in his career that he has ever forged someone’s signature. It was a mistake, he said, adding, “the district is kind of passing the blame.” “This is a horrible nightmare,” said Zeleznik. “Honestly, if you look at what happened, and really analyze how it happened, unfortunately I (got) stuck in the middle.” Zeleznik said the owner of Lot 4 bought the land knowing he could build a two-storey home. Zeleznik’s company presented a plan to the developers and was given approval to build the house, as the design met all of the developer’s guidelines. Zeleznik was later informed by the district there was a problem with the building permit. He said he was told there were height

problems with Lot 4, as well as Lots 5 and 6. He said he was told the quickest way to get the variance issued would be for the developer to get a letter signed by the owners of each lot that was most affected. The next day, the developer asked him to forward a letter on to Kohut, who lives on Lot 3, as well as the owner of Lot 4. In an e-mail dated March 20, Zeleznik explained the situation to Kohut and asked for his signature. Kohut responded to Zeleznik the same day, asking if the house on Lot 4 would end up towering over his. Zeleznik wrote back several e-mails that evening, sending Kohut site plans and designs. Zeleznik sent another

e-mail March 28 with photos attached to give Kohut a visual example of how the neighbouring building would impact him. Kohut didn’t respond to any of these e-mails, but Zeleznik still opted to forge his signature. “Knowing that he had received all the plans and information, I signed his name and sent it to the developer, thinking that if (Kohut) had any further comments or concerns about the building going on next to him, he would send back a reply either way,” Zeleznik wrote in a statement. “It was never my intent to sway the staff or council with the letter and if I knew that the owner had any issue with the variance being put forth, then that would have been left with the developer and (Kohut).”

Zeleznik added neither he nor his company had any monetary gain in the outcome of the approval for a variance, other than the allowance to build the custom home he had been contracted to build for the owner of Lot 4. He said he is curious why the District of West Kelowna didn’t make a better effort to contact Kohut regarding the variance application. According to Zeleznik, they simply dropped a notice on Kohut’s doorstep, which he didn’t receive until he returned from overseas. After Mayor Doug Findlater learned of the issue May 6, he called for a reconsideration of the resolution passed April 8. “This whole thing is

Findlater said this was only the second time he has issued a reconsideration during his time as mayor. “I felt it was appropriate because we received information that some of the documentation we received was basically forged, concerning a letter of support, when in fact the resident involved is vociferously opposed,” said Findlater. “We rely on the public process…so to have something come in that’s

Gellatly Road will be closed for approximately five weeks as the District of West Kelowna conducts emergency repairs to deal with erosion of the bank on the west side of the road. “Staff looked at it, we had various engineers, including our own, look at the safety aspect,” said West Kelowna chief administrative officer Jim Zaffino. “We determined that it was hazardous to the public.

Bylaw Enforcement service enhanced

Bylaw Enforcement assistance will be offered in the District of West Kelowna seven days a week this summer. From May 20 through Sept. 1, the Bylaw Enforcement Department

will take calls at 778-7978810, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Calls made after hours will be forwarded to an automated messaging system for follow-up the next business day.

Currently the District of West Kelowna provides Bylaw Enforcement service from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday excluding holidays. The service is being expanded in

the provincial government through Emergency Management BC, with the support of the Regional Emergency Program, to conduct emergency repairs to the roadway. The district had already planned to upgrade the affected stretch of Gellatly Road in 2015; therefore, the municipality is working cooperatively with the province on the emergency construction, and will contribute $1.3

million in order to conduct repair and upgrade works at the same time. “I believe this is the largest award the valley has seen for emergency repairs,” said Michael Trickey, general manager of community services with the district. Emergency works will begin immediately, starting with the temporary relocation of the sewer line.

STAFF REPORTER

There will be at least one new face on District of West Kelowna council by the end of this year. Coun. Gord Milsom told Capital News Tuesday he has decided not to seek re-election this November. “It’s been wonderful being on council and representing the community. I’m really grateful for the opportunity,” said Milsom. “I’m going to miss it, but I’m still going to stay involved in community service in different ways.” Milsom was first elected to council in the District of Westside’s inaugural municipal election in 2007.

Kelowna K’Pow seals season with national U18 silver medal The Kelowna K’Pow capped off a memorable season of volleyball with a silver medal performance at the Canadian U18 boys club championship last weekend in Edmonton. Two weeks after claiming gold at the B.C. finals, the Kelowna Volleyball Club team was in fine form at the national championship, as the local boys went on a serious playoff run. K’Pow defeated London 2-1 in the quarterfinals, then downed Manitoba’s top seed in the semi finals two straight.

This put Kelowna on a collision course with Ontario’s No. 1 team, the Durham Attack, who had one of the most dominant athletes in the whole event. He was 6-foot-7, 260 pounds with a jump that could reach 11 feet, 10 inches. KVC lost a close game one 25-23, but rebounded with strong defense in the second game. One rally went on for about 40 seconds and included some key digs by Isaac Smit and Jory Dickie and ended with a mon-

ster block by Adam Kern. K’Pow went on for a convincing 25-14 in Game. In the deciding game, K’Pow fell behind early and tried to claw back into the match. With Durham Attack leading 13-9, KVC closed the gap on a couple great attacks by Devon Cote and a Cole Hanson block to make it 14-12. On the final point, the Kelowna boys were stuff blocked and the ball hit the floor. Head coach Paul Thiessen reflected on a what he called an “amazing season” for the

Silver in Abby for U14 Heat A road trip to the Lower Mainland last weekend was well worth the time and effort for the Kelowna U14 Heat, as they earned a silver medal at the Abbotsford girls fastball tournament. The only two losses the Heat suffered came in the round robin and in the final, both to the Bellig-

ham Bash U15 girls team. Losing a round robin game forced the Heat to take the long way to the finals, first knocking off the 11th seeded Tri City Titans 17-4. Racquel Bennett hint a three-run homer while Niah La Roy scored three times. Gracie Barbour took home the pitching win.

K’Pow. “For the boys to take home a medal at the end of it says a lot,” Thiessen said. “No other B.C. men’s team made the finals of the top two tiers. The boys have improved so much from lessons learned. We hit almost every goal we set, the support from all the parents was outstanding. “The most important thing is all the wonderful memories, friendships and stories they will have to tell for years to come,” Thiessen said.

THE Kelowna U14 Heat celebrate the silver medal at the Abbotsford girls rep fastball tournament. Next up was the No. 3 seeded South Delta ’01 team. The girls turned a tight game into a route late scoring 10 runs in the final two innings to win 11-4. Gracie Barbour led the way scoring three runs and hitting a bases-loaded triple for three RBIs. Winning pitcher Brooke Lambert helped her own cause by scoring twice. In the semifinals, the Heat got the better of the previously unbeaten South Delta ’00 team with a 6-3 win. “The girls executed our game plan flawlessly,” said Heat coach Bernie Penner. Winning pitcher Niah La Roy led the way stealing four bases and scoring two runs, while Emma Caron picked up the save. The finals pitted the girls against Bellingham for the second time. Kelowna was up 3-2 in the

fourth until a series of unfortunate miscues resulted in the final lopsided score and a second-place finish. “Coming in second is an extremely good outcome, very proud of the girls,” said Penner. “As coaches we feel we are well on our way to becoming a provincial medal threat.” Kelowna Heat players are Gracie Barbour, Racquel Bennett, Brooke Lambert, Haley Martin, Niah La Roy, Julia Paulson, Taylor Callow, Dallas MacMillan, Emily Elsom, Carleigh Maniago and Emma Caron. Coaches are Bernie Penner, Rachel Penner and Nelson Hughes. Next up for Kelowna Heat is a tournament south of the border in Wenatchee.
