Home height variance approved

Recreation use potential eyed if rail line closes

Mayor Doug Findlater votes against, ‘to try to uphold the integrity of our public process.’

Wade Paterson


An attempt to “defraud the public process” didn’t sway District of West Kelowna council from approving a controversial variance request Tuesday. Council once again voted in favour of a building height variance for a lot on Lakeview Cove Road in West Kelowna. The variance request was being reconsidered after district staff discovered a neighbour’s signature had been forged on a letter of support that was considered by council when it initially voted in favour of the variance April 8. Mayor Doug Findlater was the only member of council to vote against the variance reconsideration Tuesday and did so in order to make a statement, he said. “I’ve wrestled with this a whole lot of the last five or six days,” said Findlater. “It weighs very, very heavily on my mind that there was an attempt to basically defraud our pub-

lic process by providing a fraudulent letter of support. “I think I have to try to uphold the integrity of our public process.” Earlier this month, James Zeleznik, general manager of Jazel Homes, admitted to forging Ray Kohut’s signature on a letter that supported the original variance application. Kohut, who lives next door to the house being constructed, was travelling out of country at the time. When Kohut returned, he said he was surprised to see the height of the house next door. He phoned the District of West Kelowna and discovered the fraudulent letter of support. RCMP confirmed last week there is an ongoing investigation related to forgery, but no charges have been laid yet. In his most recent letter to the district, Kohut said he wanted the house next door to be torn down and rebuilt “to the correct height that blends in with the area.”

Members of the Okanagan Rail Trail Initiative were joined by a Vernon Paralympian Tuesday morning as the group released an assessment of the impacts if an abandoned stretch of rail line between Kelowna and Coldstream is turned into a recreational trail linking the two communities. The group—which has volunteers from all the communities the rail line goes through, including Kelowna, Lake Country, Oyama and Vernon— is hoping the old Kelowna Pacific Railway line will be turned into a trail which would pass through 23 parks and 22 points of interest, starting at Kalamalka Lake in Coldstream and ending in the cultural district of downtown Kelowna. “We’ve had so much public support and (all levels of) government agree that this would be a great opportunity,” said group director Brad Clements. “So many good things could happen if this is turned into a trail.” The impact assessment released by the group points to major economic and tourism benefits from the trail, including: • Some12,500 visitors would be drawn to the trail in its first year, bringing in $3.47 million in visitor spending • By its fifth year in operation, the trail would bring over 26,000 new visitors and attract 600,000 total users with $6.7 million in visitor spending • Employment in tourism and supply businesses would generate salaries totalling $1.2 million in the first year, rising to $2.2 million by year five and averaging $2.1 million for the first 15 years of operation. The 70-page report looked at other trails in North America and Europe that were created by using old rail lines. Clements said the study also pointed to health benefits of providing alternative transportation routes in the Okanagan. “What (the report) found was an increase in the health of the overall residents because people start getting out and using the trail,” he said.

Central Okanagan targeted for further strike action on June 2 Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Against a backdrop of honking horns and hoots of support, teachers across the Central Okanagan waved pickets and aired details from the latest round of contract negotiations with the province—something many described as a fight to save the public school system. “The foundation of the fight here is making sure that we don’t end up with a two tier education system… where there’s one thing available for the rich and another for the rest of us,” said Susan Bauhart, president of the Central Okanagan Teachers’ Association, on Tuesday. So far, the system “is fine,” she said, but a long run of cuts are tipping the balance, and if teachers don’t make a stand on issues of class size, composition and funding for teachers, she thinks it could spell trouble. In particular, funding to special education programs is needed. Approximately 1,500 special education teachers have lost their jobs across B.C. since 2001, which the province says is reflective of dwindling class sizes. Teachers, however, say that the proportion of students on the autism spectrum or with other learning disadvantages has risen beyond 2001 numbers, and that’s not reflected in funding.

That story is supported by provincial documents, which say that from the years 2007 to 2013 there has been a 57 per cent increase in the total number of classes containing four or more students with Individual Education Plans in the province. “Personally, I have a son who is 32 now, but he was identified as special needs, with a learning disability, in Grade 2,” she said. “There was a program then that helped him. They found the key to make him read, and he’s working now on his PhD in philosophy.” Those types of programs have been taken away, said Bauhart. “My fundamental question is why shouldn’t the students of today have what my son had many years ago?” she said. “I am remarkably proud to be a teacher in this province. Teachers give so much of themselves. But it’s at a breaking point now, and it’s time to bring resources back.” Of course, wages are an issue as well. The province is thus far only willing to ante up 7.3 per cent over six years with a $1,2000 signing bonus. The BCTF, meantime, is demanding $646 million in salary and benefit increases, representing a 21.5 per cent overall increase in four years. Vancouver based Glen Hansman, the BCTF first vice-president, was in Kelowna Tuesday, say-

ing that teachers’ requests are more modest than that. Looking at wages alone, he said teachers are asking for 10 per cent more, which still puts them an average of $18,000 a year behind their counterparts in Ontario. “We’re not looking for parity, so we feel what we’re proposing in quite modest,” he said. Teachers, he said, have just gone through two years of zero increases, and now it needs to go on an upswing. “Are we going to have to compromise? Absolutely, but we need to see some more movement from them,” he said. To reinforce that point, the BCTF announced late Wednesday another round of rotating strikes for next week, with Central Okanagan schools to be closed due to striking teachers on Monday, June 2. What is clear is that lockout provisions, implemented in response to the teachers’ strike means teachers can’t do any work at recess, lunch or beyond 45 minutes before or after class, impacting all activities that fall outside those parameters. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said Monday teachers supervising any activity would be covered by workers’ compensation. Government negotiators and the teachers’ union are scheduled to meet with the Labour Relations Board on today.

Child porn investigation led to local business owner’s arrest Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Details about how a West Kelowna man was snared by Mounties allegedly trying to lure an underage girl into a sexual encounter are starting to be made known. Police say Tyler Nowek, 29, was using an online chat forum in March, when he came across who he believed to be a 13-year-old girl, and sparked up a conversation. “The chat between the accused and (the) girl quickly became sexually explicit,” said Sgt. Mat Van Laer, of the BC Integrated Child Exploitation Unit.

During the conversation, Nowek admitted he should not be interacting with the girl as he could get into trouble if caught. Regardless of that understanding, he then allegedly ramped up the relationship and suggested meeting the girl for a date. Instead of a face-to-face with the 13-year-old, however, Nowek was met April 2 with investigators from the West Kelowna RCMP and the BC ICE Unit, at his place of business, Ultimate Hockey and Skate Store. “A search warrant was executed at the business shortly after. Nowek was released

on a recognizance with conditions governing his access to children and the Internet,” Van Laer said. Charges of luring a child and making child pornography were laid and Nowek continues to deal with the incident in court. Van Laer said that this case illustrates how quickly and brazenly child predators develop relationships online with children. It’s also an example of how seriously the RCMP are taking any hint of sexual exploitation. Explaining the charges that Nowek faces, Van Laer explained the definition of making child pornography in Can-

ada is relatively broad, and its intention is to protect children from any sexual exploitation. That means any visual or written representation of child pornography, or any writing that advocates or counsels someone how to take part in child porn are fodder for the charge. “Whether it’s fictitious or real child pornography makes no difference in Canada,” he said. In other countries, for example, Anime books that illustrate sexual acts with children would fall outside the radar of police, but in Canada they’d be illegal. “It’s really on the broader scope of the charge (against

Nowek) that this offence is listed,” said Van Laer, adding that he can’t go into specifics given that the case is before courts. As the court case continues, however, Nowek’s new life is starting to take shape. He’s been released with limitations on his contact with children and the Internet and he’s also severed ties with his business. Ultimate Hockey and Skate Store owner Mark Cormier said “his former partner has been released of all business operations, completely.” As for whether the community will continue to support the store moving forward, that’s up in the air.

“The community feedback has been a lot more positive than negative,” Cormier said, noting that when people went out of their way to speak to him, they’ve been “awesome and supportive.” “Hopefully over the summertime we can move forward.” The BC Integrated Child Exploitation Unit encourages you to report any suspicious online activity to Educational resources about how to prevent becoming a victim of online child exploitation are readily available at sites such as protectchildren. ca,, and

Mom searches for missing son Hear what you’ve been missing. May is Hearing Awareness Month.

It has been two years since Phillip Lee Lyons went missing from a halfway house in Kelowna and his mother is still hoping for answers. Lyons was on day parole as a first time federal offender on May 26, 2012, when he walked away from a halfway house in Kelowna. “A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the suspension of Lyons’ par-

ole and he has been unlawfully at large since that time,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. “Although Lyons is known to the Okanagan area he had expressed a desire to return to New Brunswick. “The halfway house is the last place where Lyons was confirmed to have been seen and he has not contacted family since before he left.

Wanted man captured, back to court facing new charges A 43-year-old Kelowna man wanted on five outstanding warrants is facing new charges after he was taken into custody Tuesday evening. On May 27, the Kelowna RCMP Street Enforcement Team was looking to apprehend the wanted fugitive. The man was thought to be aware of his warrants and was believed to be actively avoiding capture. Police investigators had tracked him down to a known problem residence on the 2400 block

of Charolais Road. However, the suspect was not there when police descended on the house. About to leave the area to continue their search, police spotted the man driving past in a pickup truck which suddenly sped away. After a brief pursuit, the man ditched the truck and fled into the house that police had just left. A police service dog was deployed and located the man hiding in  the crawl space below the house. The man was taken

into custody and appeared in court Wednesday on the strength of his warrants as well as several new charges. David Andrew Bellefontaine has been charged with obstruction, flight from police and uttering threats for threatening to kill a police service dog. He remains in custody until his next court appearance.

Controversial variance request approved Home from A1 Despite Kohut’s disapproval with the variance request, district planning manager Brent Magnan said staff still recommended council authorize the issuance of a development variance permit to increase the maximum building height from nine to 12.97 metres. That increase is less than the 13.4 metre maximum allowable height council approved April 8. A key consideration was that the zoning bylaw does not necessarily ac-

count for the topography of the subject property, according to Magnan. “The house itself… is very reasonable in size (compared) to other homes in that neighbourhood,” said Coun. Gord Milsom. “The request for the height variance is really the result of the grade of the property.” Coun. Rick de Jong said the variance request was a very difficult file to deal with, especially considering the fraudulent letter. “We’ve got to let that

rest in the hands of the RCMP at this point in time and we’ve got to look at the facts that are in front of us today,” said Coun. Rick de Jong. “I do think staff has found a happy medium.” Coun. Duane Ophus said he supported the variance because Robert and Patricia Sklar, the owners of the house being constructed, are “most fundamentally at potential harm” if the house doesn’t get built. In a letter sent to the district, the Sklars explained further delays to

construction of their home could affect their retirement plans and result in significant financial loss. “I think that we have a particular duty to them to let this house get finished and let them get on with their lives,” said Ophus. Council also unanimously authorized the issuance of a development variance permit for three neighbouring lots, with a maximum height not to exceed that of the house currently being constructed. wpaterson

Rail corridor potential ideal for safe cycling Recreation from A1 “Right now there is no trail linking these communities so if you are cycling you are going along Highway 97 and it’s not pleasant. “We’re very excited that the report shows there are tremendous benefits to protecting the corridor in the event that it is not used as a railway, and we will know that in a weeks time. “If it’s not operated as a railway we’d like to keep it as a public space.” A two-time Paralympic medalist, Josh Dueck was on hand to support the movement and says it would be a great way for athletes and families to have a safe place to cycle. “Being an athlete I think it’s a good opportunity to train in a safe environment,” said Dueck. “I do a lot of cycling in the summer months and I really believe I’m playing Russian roulette on the roads. There are not a lot of safe cycling paths right now.” As part of the abandonment process, CN Rail has until June 3 to sell the land that the rail line is on to a group that would operate it as a railway. If that doesn’t happen each level of government will have a 30 day window to potentially purchase the line.

United to switch to San Francisco from LA destination Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Goodbye Los Angeles. Hello San Francisco. United Airlines, which currently flies direct between Kelowna International Airport (YLW) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has announced it is re-

placing that daily direct service with direct flights to and from San Francisco International (SFO) starting this fall. The flights will continue to be operated by United’s regional airline United Express and will start Sept. 20. According to YLW director Sam Samaddar,


while the decision was United’s, it actually fulfils the original request he made to the airline five years ago. At the time, YLW was looking for an airline that would fly direct between San Francisco and Kelowna. Instead, it was offered the Kelowna-LA route, but still jumped at the offer. Samaddar said for United the decision makes sense given SFO is its main hub airport and it has more connections from there to U.S. and international destinations than any other airport. While the new San Francisco flights will replace the current scheduled service to and from LA, there will continue to be intermittent LAX to YLW non-stop service between Dec. 20 to Jan. 4 on Saturdays and Sundays and then just Saturdays from Jan. 31, 2015, to Feb. 7, 2015. Those flights will primarily accommodate the skiers coming here, said Samaddar. United will contact customers currently booked to travel to LAX after Sept. 20 or out-

side the dates mentioned above to offer alternate arrangements, said a news release issued by the Kelowna airport. As of Feb. 7, 2015, passengers will still be able to book a United flight from Kelowna to LAX, he said, but it will be routed through San Francisco. “This new service to SFO will provide our travellers better connection points to many more U.S. cities,” said Samaddar. “The SFO terminal also provides travellers better connection points and closer walking distances from international to domestic gates. “In addition, there are shuttles from SFO to each of the LA-area airports including LAX, Burbank,

(BUR), LA/Ontario International (ONT) and John Wayne Airport (SNA).” United is the largest carrier at San Francisco International Airport, offering nearly 300 daily flights to more than 90 destinations in the U.S. and around the world, more service than any other airline from the Bay area. From its San Francisco hub, United also offers more non-stop trans-Pacific service to and from the United States than any other carrier hub. United currently operates nearly 30 daily nonstop flights from San Francisco to 21 international destinations. Flying time from Kelowna to San Francisco is just over 2.5 hours and the daily flights will leave Kelowna at 3.55 p.m. and arrive in San Francisco at 6:33 p.m. The flights from San Francisco to Kelowna will leave at 12:40 p.m. and arrive at 3:18 p.m. United Express will use 50-seat Skywest CRJ200 aircraft on the route. “This is very exciting for our leisure and busi-

ness travellers,” said Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray, chairman of the airport advisory committee. “SFO has been on our wishlist and in our business plan for a few years now. We are pleased this opportunity with United has presented itself.” News of the change was greeted with enthusiasm by representatives of several business sectors here, including the hightech industry, wineries and tourism. “The addition of a direct Kelowna-San Francisco route will be an invaluable tool in growing Kelowna’s technology industry,” said Lane Merrifield, co-founder of Club Penguin and a local entrepreneur. “A direct air link will greatly assist in company access, investment opportunities and workforce development as the Oka-

nagan Valley continues to link economically to Silicon Valley. “Kelowna is already known as one of Canada’s most entrepreneurial cities, and this only reinforces that.” Nancy Cameron, CEO of Tourism Kelowna, said access to the San Francisco tourist market, with LA still within our reach, will be positive for the growth of tourism here. Like the Okanagan Valley, the area around San Francisco is known for its high-tech industry, wine industry and tourism. “From the community standpoint this new route will be a huge benefit as it will attract visitors from San Francisco for wine tourism, golf, skiing and to see this fantastic region,” said Quails’ Gate Estate Winery CEO Tony Stewart.

Transit use numbers making slow progress A travel survey conducted in the Central Okanagan says the numbers are moving in the right direction when it comes to trying to get more people out of their automobiles and onto transit. But not by much. According to Kelowna city hall, the Household Transit Survey, last conducted in 2007, showed 66.7 per cent of all trips in the Central Okanagan were made by people driving their automobile, down slightly from 69.4 per cent seven years ago. In that time, local municipalities and B.C. Transit have invested heavily in improving the local transit system and advertising it. But transit still accounts for a small percentage when it comes to modes of transport for people making local trips here. According to the study, transit use accounts for about five per cent of all trips on a given weekday in the Central Okanagan. Seven years ago, it was just over two per cent. And, in answering one Kelowna councillor’s questions, city staff admitted this area has a long way to go to catch up with larger cities like Vancouver and Burnaby when it comes to transit use. Despite that, after learning of the survey’s results earlier this week, council seemed pleased that some progress is being made. Corresponding with the decrease in automobile use, was a slight increase in other modes of transportation as well, such as walking and cycling. The survey said by far the largest number of trips made in this area are by people travelling less than five kilometres.

Mission Creek gold panning ban called for when fish spawn

Mission Creek has taken on a new shine for gold panning enthusiasts, which worries local conservation groups concerned with fish protection. Hand-panning for gold nuggets re-emerged as a hobby with the bullish price of gold earlier this decade and the creek, particularly the region near the end of Hollywood Road South, is now regu-

larly dredged by treasure seekers. Technically, this is legal. “Panning for gold that involves sluicing or mechanized disturbance is not permitted in British Columbia without a Mines Act permit; however, people are permitted to pan for gold in streams if they use only a pan and a shovel and do not impact the riparian areas,” said Matt Gordon, Ministry of Mines and Energy spokesperson, in an email

touch with MLA Steve Thomson trying to gain traction for a ban on panning from October to July. Hanson says he and other conservationists from the B.C. Wildlife Federation will be chasing down the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as well. The province has indicated DFO has the ability to restrict panning during certain time periods and Hanson is hoping if enough attention is called to the problem, he will secure the ear of interested fisheries officials. In the meantime, he’s hoping that once waters recede, local gold panning buffs will wait until July to

hit the creek and stop their activities come October.

Favourite gardening tools require care and attention


ust think if we gardeners had to perform our tasks without the aid of tools. Tasks such as digging, raking, hoeing and for sure pruning would be impossible to do. I suppose the first primitive tool may have been a sharpened stick that was used to work the ground up. Then over the next few thousand years, clever gardeners invented better and better implements

IRRIGATION CONCERNS Water seeps slowly from some of my sprinklers First monitor your sprinkler to see whether water only seeps for a little while after irrigation and then stops, or if it continues to seep throughout the day. If the water only leaks for a while after irrigation stops. Gravity plays a large part in any irrigation system. If one of your sprinklers is in a lower position than the others on a line, such as the bottom of a hill or incline, standing water in your pipes will flow there when your system is off. If there is enough water, it can build enough pressure to push up through the sprinkler and cause the sprinkler to trickle or leak. There are two possible solutions to this problem. You can install a check valve in your irrigation line, or your can purchase a sprinkler head with a check valve built in. If the water seeps continuously throughout the day, there may be a problem with your irrigation valve. It may not be completely stopping the flow of water after the controller tells it to. Check the diaphragm inside the valve, and check to see if there is something that is allowing water to seep past the valve, like a rock or some other obstruction that is not allowing the valve to do its job properly. If this does not answer your problem or if you have other irrigation problems and concerns please drop in to chat with our helpful staff.

that show the most wear. Some of my tools have become favourites simply because I’ve become attached to them, something like our Maytag washer and dryer that we got when we were first married and the pair gave good service for more than 40 years. With laundry machines, they just don’t seem to make them like they used to—and the same goes for gardening tools. However, it does help if the tool was of good quality in the beginning, such as my pair of Felco shears I bought in 1972. While I should treat myself to a nice new pair of shears, whenever I try them out the new ones, they just don’t have the same feel as the wellworn shears I’ve carried on my belt all these years. At least twice a year I



lovingly take them apart to be cleaned and sharpened. Even a new pair of Felco shears will not perform well if in poor condition. Favourite tools are often those handed down from parents or other relatives and are used in the beginning mainly to feel the vibes of the person they once belonged to. I have my dad’s old buck knife that I carry in my pocket as well as his pocket lens engraved with his initials. Another tool I cherish

is an antique spading fork with a wooden “D” handle given to me by Ruth Rushton, a customer who dealt with our garden centre for many years and someone I often helped with gardening concerns at her Okanagan Mission property. One day while I was doing just that, she asked me to come to her garden shed because she had something for me—a spading fork that she remembered her dad using when she was a child. That tool dates back probably to around the turn of the 19th century and I think of her every time I use it today. Another of my favourites is one I inherited from my good friend Charlie Faulkner; a stirrup hoe that belonged to his dad. It is a prime example of a tool made from the very best steel in its day.

My wife Donna has her own favourite garden tools—a simple handheld weeder and a three pronged cultivator. Donna weeds as if she were planting, only backwards, by gently working the root system with her weeding tool enabling the complete removal of the weed, then combing the soil smooth with her cultivator. Just the opposites of favourite tools are the ones that never get used and take up valuable space in the garden shed. Those ones should be thrown into the garage sale and perhaps one day become someone else’s favourite gardening tool.

Landfill entrance upgraded

When one door closes another one opens. Or, in Kelowna’s case, when one entrance to a city facility closes, another opens. In this case it’s a new entrance to the Glenmore Landfill. Starting June 2, landfill customers will access the facility from John Hindle Drive instead of the current Glenmore Drive entrance, which will be closed. The new entrance also means better service, says the city. Improvements will include a new recycling area before the main gates, improved weigh scales for measuring loads, and paved areas for refuse disposal making load drop off easier and cleaner for residents visiting the site. “The entrance and traffic signal at John Hindle Drive will help to take some of the traffic congestion away from Glenmore Drive and will allow a safer left turn for those entering and leaving the landfill,” said Ken Muller, the landfill supervisor. “We’re happy with the configuration of the new entrance and look forward to better serving the public.” The city received a community recognition award from Wood Works! for its support of the B.C. wood industry for its commitment to use wood in the new landfill administration building. That supports city council’s adoption of the Wood First initiative to build using a renewable resource. As well, roof-mounted solar panels heat the hot water in the building and all toilets on site are composting toilets, reducing toilet water usage to almost nothing and creating no load on the city’s sanitary system.

These numbers hard to swallow


f we’ve learned anything from the Great Recession, it’s that the country’s highest-paid CEOs will always survive—and thrive—no matter what happens to the economy. According to an annual review by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the average compensation amongst Canada’s top 100 CEOs was $7.96 million in 2012. The average Canadian work-

ers’s salary was $46,634. Do a little math and that works out to CEOs making about 171 times the earnings of the average worker. Here’s something to chew on—by the time the average Canadian worker was done lunch on January 2 of this year, the top CEOs had already made their equivalent yearly wage. Kinda makes you want to lose your lunch.

It’s not that anyone really looks to begrudge executives from being well compensated. It’s just that the gap between “us” and “them” continues to expand at a rate that is far beyond fair. CEO salaries have risen 73 per cent between 1998 and 2012. Compared that to the wage of the average Canadian worker at six per cent. And despite the intense scru-

tiny CEO salaries have come under since 2008, there doesn’t seem to be any clear relationship between CEO salaries and corporate performance, according to report author Hugh Mackenzie. But maybe we Canadians shouldn’t complain; American CEOs make 257 times the average worker’s wage in that country. —Chilliwack Times

Are our public schools racist? How can it be addressed?


ast week’s column on the proposal to add a mandatory high school course on the effects of Canada’s aboriginal residential school policy attracted a range of responses—some of which are printable. I referred to comments by B.C. Teachers’ Federation vice-president Glen Hansman at a 2012 aboriginal education conference, where he insisted that “racism is the norm in public schools—still today” because of a colonial perspective that remains ingrained in our culture. Aboriginal education has been


built into social studies curriculum for years. It’s come a long way from my high school days, where Mr. Spillers, my Grade 8 English teacher, assigned Tom us an essay proposing Fletcher solutions to Canada’s “Indian problem.” That was 1972, and it was the only time the subject came up. My lone aboriginal classmate wasn’t around by then. I never saw him again after we graduated from our rural elementary school. How are things now? I received a thoughtful letter from a young woman who graduated from high school in


the Okanagan last year. She writes: “The idea that information about residential schools is not presented to students is entirely incorrect. The social studies curriculum that I went through included a large emphasis on First Nations culture and post-European colonization history. “First Nations studies began in elementary school and continued to the last mandatory social studies course in Grade 11. I can say with no hesitation that if anything, I have been informed too often about the residential schools, and the horrendous things that occurred there. “If aboriginal culture courses are poorly attended, I would be inclined to suggest that it is because students

are tired of being taught the same limited perspective over and over, and, if of European descent, being made to feel somehow responsible for all possible troubles plaguing First Nations today.” Another reply I’d like to share is from Keith Thor Carlson, editor of the Stó:lo Nation historical atlas I referred to last week. Carlson is now a history professor at the University of Saskatchewan, specializing in the Salish people of B.C. and the Métis of Northern Saskatchewan. He writes: “We do need to teach the history of the First Peoples of this country in our schools, and we do need to keep vigilant about the racism that continues to haunt the hallways and class-

t c P i i l n l a

rooms where our children learn. c “Of course aboriginal history e should never be reduced to victim history, and with the Stó:lo atlas we sought to show the complexity of aboriginal history, and we sought to show that not only are there aboriginal people in Canada’s history, but that Canada is in aboriginal peoples’ hista ories. “There were times in the past when aboriginal people were victim- s ized (residential schools being a tra- p gic example), and there were times r when aboriginal people showed great f agency (retaining the masked dance, l and continuing to fish salmon, for ex- t a See Fletcher A11C

Angry parent chides BC/Hockey Canada Open letter to Barry Petrachenko, BC Hockey executive director: With regards to the BC Hockey Bulletin issue no. 2014-012: I find it offensive that BC Hockey and Hockey Canada thinks they somehow own our kids. This is a free country and people can choose to do what they wish with their kids and this sanction is clearly a violation of people’s rights. Am I entitled to put my kids in soccer while they are playing hockey? Are there any other sports that they are no longer entitled to play in? If I am not prohibited from playing other sports, then certainly BC Hockey or Hockey Canada have no right to tell me what recreation activity my child does on his own free time. Hockey Canada is trying to heavy-handily put an end to other leagues and programs clearly because they feel threatened by the growth and expansion of such programs. In the bulletin it states: The teams who make up these “leagues”

operate in this fashion because they do not agree with the existing overall vision of Hockey Canada. They profess to have a better program yet often operate without a constitution, by-laws, create their own rule book and may not provide adequate insurance for their participants. I am confused as to when people lost their right to disagree with something, and who says they disagree? Most if not all of the people who run these programs are also involved in minor hockey in varying capacities and do support minor hockey in many ways. Every program that I am aware of has more than adequate insurance as it’s a requirement to participate. In the future please do some research before you make such inaccurate blanket statements. The reason people are “leaving” for private leagues and academies is because the minor hockey system is broken. It’s not always about the development, it’s about the fairness, accountability and having well-managed programs and organizations.

Penticton just found out there was a $300,000 embezzlement scheme going on for years. Kelowna funds have been questionably spent. Vernon is embroiled in a legal battle with its director of hockey operations, and that’s just three associations within 50 km of each other in the Okanagan. How dare you make the claim that “Hockey Canada offers the best development programs worldwide” when there is so much corruption and in-fighting with people trying to serve their own agendas. Somewhere in all of this people have forgot about the kids. Hockey Canada and BC Hockey are fiddling while Rome burns. If you are so concerned about the growth of “rogue” hockey, instead of being critical of their programs and trying to discredit them, maybe you should get out of your comfy chair and consider taking a hard look at your own programs and governance models. Maybe you will learn something about what is truly going on. Kim Dobranski, Kelowna

Group incensed over genetically engineered apple To the editor: The B.C. government is refusing to carry out a review of the genetically engineered (GE) apple it promised in 2012. The GE apple developed by Okanagan Specialty Fruits in Summerland B.C. is genetically engineered to not turn brown for about 15 days after it is cut, and is under assessment for approval in Canada and the US. Unless the BC government acts now, the GE apple could be approved before the promised review takes place. The government needs to carry out a review which

is fair, transparent and receives adequate input from consumers, farmers and scientific experts. In 2012 the Union of BC Municipalities voted for a moratorium on the GE apple and the promise of a review was part of the government’s response. The Society for a GE Free BC, a grassroots community coalition working for sustainable agriculture and against genetic engineering of crops and animals, has made several requests for this review and meetings with the Ministry of Agriculture—with no response. Our government must

consult British Columbians, retailers and both organic and conventional apple growers on this urgent GE apple problem. The BC Fruit Growers’ Association has also requested a moratorium on approving the GE apple. This week Nicholas Simons, B.C. NDP agriculture critic, will present over 7,000 signatures gathered by the Society for a GE Free BC in 20 communities, calling for a moratorium on the GE apple. Simons also introduced two questions to the B.C. Legislature on May 12th asking for the review of the GE apple the gov-

ernment promised, with no response as yet. In 2012, the Liberal government of the day noted its concern about negative impacts of the GE apple and promised a review in response to the UBCM resolution: “The province recognizes that production of Genetically Engineered (GE) fruit trees and their products, including tree fruit and pollen, raises human and environmental health concerns in export markets. These concerns can negatively impact access to those export and some domestic markets for both conventional and organic products.

“If the federal government were to allow unconfined production of GE trees and other fruits in Canada, the fruit production and sales could be significantly impacted. The province will explore the complex GE fruit issue and the UBCM resolution to request legislation to prohibit the BC production, importation and export of GE fruit trees and their products. Upon completion of this review, the province will provide UBCM with its findings.” Tony Beck, Teresa Lynne, Society for a GE Free BC

City’s plan for Cedar Park ‘enormously grandiose’ To the editor: A wonderful event took place May 5. (Council Opts for Expanded Park Size, May 6 Capital News.) A democratic vote took place at Kelowna city council. So now there is hope that this long-planned park could actually happen. The problem is, of course, the highly inflated cost of over $4 million.

The mayor was greatly displeased by this vote as was Ron Seymour, who’s May 9 rant in the Daily Courier laid the blame on a noisy “minimob” and expects outrage from other municipalities whose park funds might become non-existent. These “community advocates” were, in fact, representative of all communities who value lake

protection and the promise of earlier councils. The other choice for council would have sold about half the park land. Indeed, the city’s plan is enormously grandiose and if they truly worry about ‘the public purse’ surely it is up to them to at least consider the simpler parts of their great plan and proceed with (some) of the rest over time as is

“And of course, as Ernie Crey has reminded me many times, let’s never forget that native rights are not based on race. Rather, they are rights based on prior occupation. And let’s also not forget that it is British and Canadian law that recognizes aboriginal peoples’ inherent rights.

Olympic ski medallist shares her story with Kelowna Rotarians Barry Gerding EDITOR

Never under-estimate the power of a dream. Kelsey Serwa is living proof of that ideal in her pursuit of success in the international ski racing world. Serwa won a silver in ski cross at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and finished fifth at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, won a gold medal in the X Games in 2011 and has won many races on the international circuit. She has also overcome physical and emotional setbacks, from knee surgery to the disappointment of not medalling in 2010. “But it’s not about winning as the end result, it’s about doing the

best you can to chase your dream and knowing you couldn’t have done any better,” Serwa said. Serwa talked about the ups and downs of her ski career as the keynote speaker at the Kelowna Rotary Club luncheon on Tuesday. She talked about the expectations of growing up in the Serwa family, where she was encouraged to strive to do great things. Her grandfather Cliff Serwa was the co-founder of Big White Ski Resort and an MLA for the Okanagan West provincial riding for 10 years. Her parents, Bruce and Terry Serwa, passed on the family’s love of skiing to Kelsey and her two siblings along with being active in the International

Ski Federation. “My grandparents showed me the way as have my parents,” she said. She told the Rotarians her dream for skiing initially was just about trying to keep up with her older brother and sister, as highland dancing occupied more of her time initially as a youngster. Her life changed dramatically on a barter deal between her dad and the Kelowna Ski Club in 1963. Her dad’s bulldozing company took on a job to dig out a basement for the ski club’s clubhouse, but after the work was done the club was unable to pay the bill. Instead, they offered Serwa’s dad free ski lessons in the Nancy Green Raine ski instruction program for three years. “It turned out to be the most expensive basement ever done, “ laughed Serwa, referring to the expensive costs parents face when their child takes up ski racing. “I never really had any kind of Olympic dream at first. My goal was just to catch up to my brother and sister.”

But the thought of winning an Olympic medal one day captured Serwa’s imagination as she turned 18. All her efforts were focused on competing and winning a medal in her home province in the 2010 Olympics, but that would end in disappointment after losing out in the semi-final ski cross heat. “As I went up the chair to reach the starting gate for the consolation race, it was snowing and raining, I was wet, I felt disappointment but I decided I had to do my best in that final race for me and I won it, ending up fifth,” she recalled. “It sucked to lose for sure, but I will never forget that feeling of being in the starting gate and hearing the crowd cheering. I realized that while skiing is an individual sport, I was not in it alone… and that competing in the Olympics was a privilege because you weren’t competing for yourself, you were competing for your country and all the people and teammates who helped you get to that point.”

cross event at the Kelowna Rotary Club luncheon on Tuesday, joined by (from left) Rotarians Bill Redmond and Dennis Campbell, BC Tree Fruits chief executive officer Serwa committed herself to the 2014 Olympics, starting out on a positive note by winning the X Games gold medal, tumbling across the finish line after exploding off the crest of the final jump in her race. “I don’t think anyone had done that before in the history of the event but I still crossed the finish line first and was very proud of that accomplishment.”

Injuries presented adversity in the subsequent years leading up to Sochi including major knee surgery. “Adversity is a part of life that you have to face no matter what you are trying to achieve,” she said, citing the philosophy that you learn more from overcoming adversity than you do success in achieving your goals in life.

Her efforts led Serwa to a silver at the Sochi Olympics, a medal she proudly displayed for the Rotarians at the luncheon. “Being on the medal podium was the coolest moment of my life and being able to share it with a teammate (gold medallist Marielle Thompson from Whistler) made it that much more special,” she said.

New Emmanuel Church auditorium breaks ground

Your Okanagan.

Your News.


EMMANUEL church members and local politicians were on hand to break ground for a 15,000 sq. ft. addition which will serve the congregation and community.

Wesla & Duane Your Weather Team


Ground was broken on Sunday to begin construction on a new auditorium at Emmanuel Church in West Kelowna. In fulfillment of a 40-year-old dream, Emmanuel Church, the largest church on the Westside, is adding on to the gymnasium where they currently worship. “Our founding members had a dream to build a sanctuary on this property when they purchased it in 1978. We’re completing that vision,” said Derrick Hamre, lead pastor at Emmanuel. The congregation has been meeting in West Kelowna and serving the community for 39 years. The church has a strong focus on children and youth outreach, and meeting needs in the community. “West Kelowna’s first food bank began in this church and has gone on to serve the physical and spiritual needs of

our district for 30 years,” says Hamre. The multi-purpose design of the addition continues to keep the community in mind and will meet the need for a theatre-style auditorium in West Kelowna. The 15,000 sq. ft. facility will be the largest capacity building in West Kelowna, besides the arena, and will include a kitchen and a large, open foyer. After planning and fundraising for the $3 million project for four years, the leadership and congregation of 700 are excited to partner with Greyback Construction to build their new church. The auditorium is to be completed in January 2015. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater and MP Dan Albas were in attendance for the ground-breaking ceremony last week.

Przybille takes wing


hroughout our years lived on this planet, many things turn out to be the opposite from what we had anticipated, and so we learn not to judge a book by its cover. And so it is with the airplane. Who has boarded a big jumbo jet without it ever entering their mind how unlikely it seems that a huge heavy metal beast is actually going to take off into the sky! So for hundreds of years, people who yearned to fly as birds do would attempt to do so by creating strapon wings of various sorts. It took a huge leap of imagination to instead create a flying machine that we could get inside of and drive in order to achieve lift off. Kelowna-based artist Crystal Przybille has been cogitating on the notion of flight in order to create her commissioned work for the Kelowna


Liz Wylie Art Gallery at our satellite space at the Kelowna International Airport. She was struck by what she terms the transformative power of intention, belief and will in the invention of and trials with early mechanical wings, known as ornithopters. Her work of art, aptly titled Wish, pays tribute to these old inventions. The piece consists of two wing-like sculptures, the infrastructure of which is made from milled aluminum, and the feathers from thin wood, rubbed with natural substances to create their beautifully modulated

brown colour. These elements are connected with a trailing red silk ribbon, which floats down onto a wooden ledge installed by the artist behind the glass barriers of the art wall. The ribbon bubbles and undulates, looking very much like a narrow river of flowing blood. In her thinking about creating this work the artist also drew upon a recent experience attending a First Nations’ brushing ceremony that included the use of eagle wings. Przybille is a thoughtful and painstaking artist. No aspect was left to chance in this installation; every detail had been carefully considered. She works in a representational manner, whether in painting or sculpture. Her work is deeply emotionally expressive, but this is held in check, and conveyed by subtle means. There is nothing forced or bom-

Its title may seem odd, but you soon realize that the present danger requires Logan to go back to 1973. Once there (in his mind only), he must prevent the events that ultimately led to the desperate struggle that the mutants face today. This X-Men has a lot of suspense, drama, surprises, and two hours of action, time travel and shape-shifting. It reintroduces us to the dynamic cast that we haven’t seen in a while—Hugh Jackman (Logan); James McAvory (Charles); Michael Fassbender (Erik); Jennifer Lawrence (Raven/ Mystique); Halle Berry


Susan Steen (Storm); Nickolas Hoult (Hank/Beast); Anna Paquin (Rogue); Peter Dinklage (Trask); Ian McKennel (Magneto) and Patrick Steward (Professor). There is a great sound track in this X-Men and then there is Hugh Jackman’s bare butt. For you guys, there are some lovely ladies too. The desperate attempt to change history gives us a riveting and entertain-

ing show. It also gives us a really good impersonation of Nixon (played by Mark Comacho). This show also provides a look at the characters’ feelings (it’s not strictly a chick-flick by any means—the action more than compensates for the warm and fuzzy bits), and delves into characterization perhaps more than most of this franchise. While it never gets too heavy, there are moments when we can share the pain, the loss and the loneliness that these unique individuals feel. I give X-Men Days of Future Past four reels.

JOLIE as Maleficent.

Thursday, May 29, 2014 Capital NewsC


One villain, two comedies

Maleficent is a liveaction re-imagining of Disney’s 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty. The movie is told Maleficent’s point of view and how she changed from a beauty with an idyllic life into the vengeful witch

that placed the curse on Princess Aurora. Angelina Jolie is perfectly cast as Maleficent and Elle Fanning is Aurora. Seth MacFarlane writes, produces and directs A Million Ways to

Die in the West. He also stars as a cowardly sheep farmer who backs out of a gunfight. He begins to find his courage when he begins to fall in love with a mysterious woman (Charlize Theron). Former Kelowna resi-

dent Taylor Kitsch stars in Don McKellar’s The Grand Seduction, a comedy set in a Newfoundland fishing village whose residents must charm a big-city doctor into staying.

that mirrors the heavy riffs of Gloria by Van Morrison. The first single from this solid album is Drive In Movies that recalls The Byrds with its pedal steel guitar—and if you listen closely you will hear LaMontagne slyly reference Dylan’s Like A Rolling Stone both lyrically and musically.   The song perhaps most influenced by Auerbach is the title track Supernova that sounds like a Tom Petty garage rocker with sharp hooks and poppy handclaps.   B

KONGOS: LUNATIC (EPIC) Kongos is an all-brother Arizona foursome whose father is John Kongos, a South African/British musician who enjoyed a few hits in the 1960s U.K. with He’s Gonna Step On You Again. In the late 1980s the Baggy ‘Madchester’ scene makers Happy Mondays scored a huge hit with their dance rock interpretation of the same John Kongos’ song they re-titled Step On. The four sons band uses the same heavy rhythmics of poppa and dad even helps out here on a few co-productions.   Right now Kongos are a major buzz band. Rolling Stone, USA Today and VH1 have all hailed Kongos while VH1 has named it the band You Oughta Know for May. Kongos have been tapped to open for Kings Of Leon this summer across North America. Lunatic has enjoyed several hits in South Africa while the two ‘feature’ tracks for this side of the equator include the Afro-beat, drum-laden opener I’m Only Joking and the accordion-driven roots pop of Come With Me Now.   Kongos are also arena rock ready. Check out the U2-like Sex On The Radio and As We Are. Kongos also feature a mean side guitar that can be heard on Hey I Don’t Know and I Want You To Know. My fave track is the breezy John Lennon-meets-Johnny Klegglike It’s A Good Life.   B

Mount Boucherie Graduation

The MBSS graduating class of 2014 put on their finest to promenade at the Delta Grand in Kelowna May 17. Prior to that, grads, family and friends gathered in West Kelowna to take pictures at the Gellatly Nut Farm. Houseboats and limousines transported many grads to the ‘Dolphin’ statues at the Delta Grand, where they assembled and proceeded to make their way to the banquet in the hotel.

REPRESENTING THE MBSS 2014 GRAD CLASS are Historian Lauren Fauchon, Valedictorian Cameron Waller, Futurist Kelsea Fischer and Historian Allison Brown.

Spencer West to visit MBSS By: Kassidie Cornell

Hard work has paid off for Mount Boucherie’s Global Service Club. After attending We Day in Vancouver in October, we set out to raise $10,000 to build a schoolhouse in Kenya. With the help of Chief Tomat and Black Mountain Elementary Schools, we were able to reach our goal in early May. Thanks to our major contributions to Free the Children, MBSS was proud to be chosen as a stop for Spencer West’s 2014 “We Create Change” tour across Canada. After losing his legs from the pelvis down at

the age of five due to a genetic disorder, West has grown up to become a top-ranked keynote speaker. He conquered an incredible feat last year when he climbed and summited Mount Kilimanjaro using only his hands and a wheelchair. Spencer is also the author of the best-selling book “Standing Tall: My Journey”, and star of the documentary “Redefine Possible: The Story of Spencer West”, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2012. Ten weeks, 90 presentations, and many

inspirational stories, West’s tour promises to be monumental. MBSS will receive the coveted final presentation on the tour. Accompanying Spencer on his tour is 11-year-old We Day Speaker Hannah Alper, along with the band Neverest. On Friday June 6th, West Kelowna, along with Spencer West, will get to celebrate all the hard work that has gone into raising $10,000 during Free the Children’s Year of Education.

Depth key to Falcons’ 2014 lineup Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER


THE Kelowna Falcons hope to have power-hitting outfielder Andrew Godbold, from Southeastern Louisiana U, on the West Coast League club’s roster this season.

If Mark Nonis has a mantra for the 2014 edition of the Kelowna Falcons, it might well be that there is strength in numbers. The general manager of the Falcons, along with new coach Billy Clontz, have compiled a list of 39 players they hope will compete for jobs for the upcoming West Coast League baseball season. “One thing we wanted to be sure of is that we won’t be short of players,” Nonis said. “I like to call it ‘hell-week’, that week at the beginning of the season where you’re never quite sure how many guys will actually report to us. “This way, we make sure that when we have to be down to 28 players in July, that we still have enough bodies around to fill the roster.” When the Falcons

open the WCL season at home to the Victoria Harbourcats on Friday, June 6, Nonis expects the roster to be loaded with pitching depth. Twenty-one pitchers have been contacted and Nonis anticipates the club will still have as many as 15 arms in Falcons’ colours when the final roster is settled. “(New Falcons coach) Billy Clontz was an assistant at Corvallis, and they’ve done well in this league because they always have pitching,” Nonis said. “In talking, we realized that pitching ultimately wins in this league, so we wanted to load up on arms.” As for position players, Nonis hopes to see a couple of solid pro prospects with the Falcons this season—Oregon State catcher K.J. Harrison and Southeastern Louisiana slugger and outfielder Andrew Godbold.

Both are expected to get some attention in the upcoming MLB draft, which may or may not affect their decisions to come to Kelowna. “K.J. is a big pro prospect and we expect him to go in the top 10 rounds,” said Nonis. “As for Andrew, Billy and I aren’t sure how he wasn’t drafted already. He’s 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, a freak athlete who has pro potential. It would be nice to have both guys with us.” The Falcons of 2014 will also have some local flavour as Kelowna-bred infielder Dawson Yates (Texas A&M Corpus Christi) returns for his second season. One of Yates’ teammates with the Okanagan Athletics in 2013, infielder Josh Croft (Central Arizona), will also spend the summer with the Falcons. The roster will also consist of a trio of UBC Thunderbirds—infielder

Kevin Biro, and pitchers Alex Graham and Jeremy Newton. The Falcons talent pool comes from every corner of North America, including 12 different states. And when it comes to the overall skill level, Nonis likes what the Falcons have to offer in 2014. “I’ll go on record as saying, on paper, this one of the best teams I’ve seen in my time here,” he said. The Falcons will be part of a 12-team WCL this season, and will play out of the four-team East Division with the Yakima Valley Pippins, Walla Walla Sweets and Wenatchee Apple Sox. Falcons players, with the exception of those still in playoffs, will be arriving in Kelowna early next week. The team’s home opener on June 6 at Elks Stadium features, as usual, free admission.

‘Compete’ is the name of the game at Sun spring camp Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Shane Beatty doesn’t plan on waiting for main training camp or the regular season to instill a competitive, hard-nosed mentality on the 2014 edition of the Okanagan Sun. With the club’s annual spring camp set for this weekend, the second-year head coach is calling for his players to play hard and set the bar high—right from the opening whistle. “Our biggest theme once again is going to be ‘compete’,” said Beatty. “Compete right from the start, come in and fight for a spot on this team because we’re going to play fast and we’re going to be very aggressive. “I want the kids to come in here with the mindset that we’re going after a 2014 championship.” About 110 players, including 52 returnees,

will be on hand this weekend for the 2014 edition of spring camp at the Apple Bowl/Parkinson practise fields. In the months leading up to spring camp, Beatty and his assistants embarked an exhaustive search to land the best talent available from across the country. Multiple stops in Saskatoon and Vancouver, along with trips to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Kamloops spawned a number of key signings. And while not every solid prospect has been sealed and delivered, the head coach is optimistic about the club’s overall talent pool in 2014. “We’ve worked really hard (recruiting), we as a staff and as an organization have been doing everything we can to get better,” said Beatty, whose club went 8-2 last season before losing in the conference semifinal. “Right now, we won’t know until we see the whites of their eye-

balls, but we could be awfully good. We’re very excited.” Among the newcomers Beatty has high hopes for include linebackers Oleks Bobrovsky (Grande Prairie), Mike Desjarlais (Regina) and Ron Mwamba (Edmonton), receiver Hunter Verhulst (Calgary) and KSS defensive lineman Connor Novak, who was named defensive MVP at the B.C. Senior Bowl. As for the strengths of this year’s ball club, according to Beatty, the defensive secondary will feature loads of depth, led by the likes of Brennan Van Nistelrooy, Robbie Yochim, Landon King, Wes Geisler and Matt McConnell. Plenty is also expected from the receiving corps which will feature Zach Regert, Thomas Huber, Lerone Robinson, Kyle Patchell and Jesse Kendall, among others. As for the quarterbacking position, last year’s starter, Theo Deezar, is headed for the University

of Manitoba and won’t be returning. Still, with returning veteran Cam Bedore in the mix, Beatty said the pivot spot should be in good hands. “Cam Bedore has been doing a heck of a job, he’s put on about 15 pounds of muscle…Matt Calderwood is back, and Josiah Joseph (Mt. Boucherie) is committed, so there’s three good talents. Now we’ve got four more coming into camp and we’re going to open the door to them to compete for a job.” In all, Beatty said about 20 new jobs on the Sun roster will be up for grabs. The Sun’s spring camp begins with registration Thursday and Friday evenings. Practise sessions are set for 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. on Sunday. The final scrimmage will go from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Main training camp will get under way in the second week of July.

Athletics ground Pirates, move up to 5th in BCPB League Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With seven wins in their last eight games, the Okanagan Athletics are making some noise in the B.C. Premier Baseball League. The A’s, who swept four games over the weekend from the Nanaimo Pirates, are now 14-10 and have pushed their way into fifth spot in the 13team circuit. With the league’s top two teams—Langley and North Shore—already off the A’s plate, head coach Evan Bailey said his club is taking care of business against the league’s lesser opponents, much the way he had hoped. “The guys are doing well but at the same time we have to remain grounded and realistic about where we’re at,” Bailey said. “The last

couple of weekends we haven’t faced the strongest of opponents, so it was important for us to get the job done. The guys played OK overall and did what they needed to.” The catalyst in the A’s sweep was the pitching rotation, as all four starters turned in solid efforts— Okanagan won over Nanaimo 14-1, 5-0, 4-1 and 4-3. Trevor Lofstrom went four innings on just two hits in the opener, Matt Brodt tossed a five-hit shutout for his third win, Easton Forrest gave up just a run and three hits in a complete game effort, and Jared Young went seven strong in the series finale. “We had four really good starts and we only gave up three walks, so that was really positive… we only went to the bullpen once,” Bailey said.

While Bailey said the offence was adequate and the defense was average at best, he liked the work at the plate by the bottom third of the Okanagan order. “Some of our guys at the bottom of the order who had been struggling really came through for us. Anytime you have a weekend where your best hitters don’t produce as much, you need other guys to step up…and that’s what we got.” Bailey was also encouraged by his club’s come-from-behind win in the series finale, as the A’s scored three times in the top of the seventh to overcome a 3-1 deficit. “We were down to our last strike in (Game 4) and we came back to win,” said Bailey. “That’s definitely great to see, those are wins that are real important come the end of the

finish up.” The Athletics are back home this coming weekend as they take on the North Delta Blue Jays (412). The teams will play doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday at Elks Stadium. Bailey said the A’s will welcome veteran Trevor Mlait back into the lineup. The senior outfielder has played in just eight of 24 games so far due to injury.


The junior A’s (5-12) will return to BCJPBL action this weekend at Edith Gay Park. Okanagan will host the Whalley junior Chiefs for doubleheaders on both Saturday and Sunday. Last weekend, the A’s split four games at home against the Nanaimo junior Pirates, winning 9-0 and 14-9, and losing 9-1

and 9-1. Meanwhile, the A’s bantam AAA squad will travel to Vancouver Island this weekend. The A’s (614) will visit Nanaimo for a twin bill Saturday, before taking on North Island for two games on Sunday. The A’s next home action in Saturday, June 14 against Ridge Meadows.

AquaJets keep their focus vs big competition


THE Okanagan South U14 girls basketball team celebrates a second-place showing a B.C. zone tourney in Lanlgey.

U14 girls silver at Langley tourney The Okanagan South U14 girls earned a silver medal at the Basketball B.C. zone tournament held last weekend at the Langley Events Centre. Fourteen regional teams from across the province competed in the three-day event where B.C. team coaches select players for the provincial selection camp. The team of 10 girls and two alternates definitely brought out their best all-around game and played great team basketball all weekend,” said Okanagan South coach Rob Mitchell. The Okanagan South girls’ strong team play


earned them a berth in the final, before coming up short against a solid Vancouver Island South regional team. “We set small goals all weekend—playing as a team, not individuals, letting the games come to us, bringing energy to each shift, making good decisions and being mentally strong by not being effected by the scouts, other coaches or officials,” Mitchell added. “But our ultimate goal was to make the final and we did that too”. “I can honestly say that each and every girl contributed to our success. Everyone got on the

score sheet but more often doing all the little things right that don’t often get noticed.” The local U14 girls opened with a 65-22 win over North Shore on Friday, then defeated Vancouver Island Central 6229 and Vancouver West 60-26 on Saturday. On Sunday, Okanagan South beat North Shore 41-32 in the semifinal. Then, in the championship game, Vancouver Island South defeated the Okanagan girls 51-38. The Okanagan South U14 girls are: Reanne Mitchell, Jocelyn Podolsky, Mackenzie Horst, Jordan Robb,

Teaghan Wallace, Summer DeGuevara, Jenna Robinson, Deziree Day, Grace Demug and Rachel Hare. Karleigh Podolsky and Jessica Parker are strong U13 team alternates that will definitely be a force at this tournament next year. The coaches are Rob Mitchell, Jill Robinson and Brian Demug (manager).

The AquaJets sent four swimmers down to UBC pool for the 51st annual Mel Zajac Canada Cup last weekend. The meet played host more than 60 teams from across Canada and the United States, including all of Canada’s senior national team and the Cal Bears girls team, with Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin at the helm. Jets’ head coach Peter Wilkins explained that his young swimmers did a fantastic job keeping their heads on straight and focusing on their own races despite the age and level of the competition. “It is nice to see that every year we come back to this meet the group of swimmers is much more confident that they can compete at this level,” Wilkins says. Skye Kinnear, 16, Katie Dunlop, 15, Tia Itterman,16, and Josh Zakala, 16, each swam four events at the meet, coming away with four finals and eight club records. Dunlop made a second swim in the 200 Breast on

Saturday, placing 22nd with a 2:45.30. She also managed to break five club records on three of other swims in the 200 Back, 2:28.76, and the 100 Free, 1:01.38. Both of these records were 15-17 and Open records. Her 5th record came in the 50 free clocking a time of 27.74 to place 26th—three of these records were previously her own. Also making his mark on the record board, Zakala lowered his own records in two events: the 200 Free (15-17) and the 200 IM (15-17 and Open). Zakala, who was recently nominated as a civic award finalist, swam to several finals, placing 22nd (200 Free), 8th (400 IM), 7th (800 Free) and 6th (200 IM).

Zakala will be travelling to the Cayman Islands in two weeks time to compete in a 5km Open Water Selection event for the Junior Open Water Worlds at the end of the summer in Isreal. Teammate Skye Kinnear was 6-for-6 on personal best times. At a mid season meet where the objectives are more around the process than the outcome, best times came at a premium with only 10 to 15 per cent achieved. The KAJ squad was able hit nearly 60 per cent bringing home 14 best times in the four days of competition. The AquaJets continue their programs through June and July national events later in June and July.

Kelowna and Westside food bank donation drive planned


BIKING SAFELY…BrainTrust Canada has launched its Helmet Safety Program with the support

of the Kelowna Rotary Club buying 300 helmets for local youth. The program’s goal is to decrease preventable brain injury through helmet compliance. Partners include the City of Kelowna bylaw and Kelowna RCMP bike squads, on-street patrols interacting with youth throughout the year and assisting to provide helmets to youth who can’t afford them. The helmets are from Nutcase Helmets, who offer a variety of current styles and have a great motto: “I Love My Brain.” The program incorporates rewarding youth for positive safety behaviour through “positive tickets” that include free services and products for local businesses McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza. A fundraiser barbecue will be held Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Original Joe’s on Lakeshore Drive to support BrainTrust Canada and helmets for youth in Kelowna.

This week, TELUS volunteers will be delivering food donation bags to residents in Glenmore, Rutland, Lakeview Heights, Shannon Lake and West Kelowna Estates. Residents are asked to place their filled bag on their doorstep before 10 a.m. for pick-up on Saturday. Donation bags will be collected by 2 p.m. “Hunger is a year round reality for many Okanagan households,” said Lenetta Parry, Kelowna and Westside food bank executive director. “Despite a stronger economy, many in our community continue to struggle. Meeting the need is an ongoing challenge.”  According to Parry, the challenge becomes even more difficult in the

spring as donations received during the holiday season deplete. “We are out of or running low on pasta, soups and cereal. We have set a goal to raise 10,000 pounds of food,” she said. Parry hopes that everyone who receives a donation bag will support the food drive. Much needed items include: • Chunky soup • Whole wheat pasta • Soup • Canned meat •Whole wheat crackers • Baby formula • Natural peanut butter • Canned fruit and vegetables. Look for your bag on your door knob this week. Donations stay in the community where they are collected.

If your donation bag is not picked up, contact the food banks in Kelowna, 250-763-7161, or Westside, 250-768-1559. Andre’s Electronics Experts is helping to get the food drive started early. This week, bring a non-perishable food item to any Andre’s location and they will match the dollar amount. “We’ve got a family block party planned for everyone with a barbecue, music from K96.3 and activity for kids. Staff from Andre’s will be here helping us unload and cheering everybody on. It’s going to be loud and lots of fun,” Parry said.   “It takes many dedicated people to make an event like this happen. We can’t thank our partners enough for their support.”  

Easing the pressure and pain of a rotator cuff injury


he rotator cuff is made up of the various muscles and tendons in the shoulder that connect the upper arm bone to the shoulder blade. It also helps hold the ball of the upper arm bone firmly in the shoulder socket A rotator cuff injury is fairly common and can involve any type of irritation or damage to the rotator cuff muscles or tendons. The most common problems are tendinitis, when one of the rotator cuff tendons becomes inflamed due to overuse or overload (especially common in athletes), bursitis, when the fluid-filled sac (bursa) between the shoulder joint and rotator cuff tendons become irritated and inflamed, and muscle or tendon strain or tear, which can happen with tendonitis that is left untreated, or with stress from overuse. Injuries are most commonly caused by normal wear and tear of daily life, poor posture or slouching, a sudden fall (and using our arms to break the fall), lifting a too-heavy object or lifting improperly, pulling something heavy, or repetitive arm activities, especially those done overhead, that cause stress to the shoulder. Symptoms may include shoulder pain, tenderness and weakness, loss of shoulder range of motion, and a tendency to keep the shoulder inactive. Pain is the most common symptom of rotator cuff injuries, and may be experienced when reaching overhead, behind the back, lifting, pulling, or sleeping on the affected shoulder. A severe injury, such as a large tear may cause continuous pain and muscle weakness. Treatment for rotator cuff injuries typically involves rest, overthe-counter pain relievers, and gentle stretching. Physiotherapy may be recom-

mended to help heal the injury, improve flexibility of the rotator cuff, and develop shoulder muscle strength. Depending on the severity of the injury, full James recovery may take from Kaufman several weeks to several months. In more severe or chronic cases, treatment may involve corticosteroid injections or surgery. About half of the time, a rotator cuff injury can heal with self-care measures or exercise therapy. Acupuncture can be very helpful in dealing with rotator cuff injuries, and this is good news. Treatments can help to relieve the inflammation, pain and muscle weakness and stiffness caused by the injury, which can speed recovery and bolster the body’s self-healing mechanisms. This makes acupuncture an excellent option in the treatment of rotator cuff injuries, as it can complement physiotherapy treatment and can reduce the length of recovery time. In addition, acupuncture helps the body to function better, and so can help to strengthen the shoulder and promote its proper functioning. In Chinese medicine, rotator cuff injuries are often due to an obstruction of the flow of qi-energy and blood to the shoulder, causing pain and weakness. Acupuncture can remove these blockages to allow full circulation of qi-energy and blood to the shoulder, allowing it to receive the nourishment it needs for proper functioning. By determining the cause of the pain and looking at each person’s individual health, we can not only resolve the pain and weakness that is being experienced, but we can also strengthen the body so that it is functioning in better health and less prone to a repeat injury or pain problem in the future.

VAN DE VYVERE, JULES Jules Rocee Van de Vyvere, husband of Caroline, father of Bert (Peggy) of Kelowna, James (Jan) of Vernon BC, Brian (Kathy) of Walkerton ON, and Robert (Joanna) of Dubai UAE; grandfather to Lisa, Tracey, Carolynn, Kris, Mark, David, James (Jay), Jayson, Ryan and eleven great grandchildren, went to be with the Lord on Sunday May 25th, 2014 at the age of ninety one. He is survived by his sister Simone Devodder of St. Boniface MB and many nieces and nephews who remember him fondly. Jules is predeceased by his wife of 57 years and mother of his children, Florence, and his son James Lawrence, also by brothers Daniel, Camille, Roger and parents Albert and Irma Van de Vyvere. Jules grew up in the thirties on a small farm on the outskirts of Winnipeg, MB learning the discipline of hard work at an early age. His father died when Jules was fifteen so his mother relied upon him and his siblings to do the necessary work to allow them to scrimp by. After college he joined the Royal Canadian Navy. When WW11 ended he was employed by Canada Packers, eventually becoming Manager of the poultry division at Walkerton ON. From there he was transferred to upgrade similar operations in Winnipeg and Edmonton, finally retiring to West Kelowna in 1984. Wherever he moved, Jules was active in his church and community. His hard work and drive made him a valued addition to church boards, The Knights of Columbus and other organization he served. In fact, he achieved Fourth Degree Knighthood and served a term as Grand Knight. When his wife Florence required more care, he eventually admitted her to the Brookhaven Seniors’ facility, visiting her daily to care for her. After her death, he married Caroline, whom he met as she was caring for her former husband. They enjoyed their opportunities to travel with friends and visit family until he too, required care and became a resident of “The Village at Smith Creek” in West Kelowna where he received wonderfully compassionate care until his death. Throughout his life as son, husband, father, friend, volunteer he gave generously of his energy and commitment to all. Prayer service will be held on Sunday, June 1, 2014 at 6:30 pm with a Funeral Mass being held on Monday, June 2, 2014 at 10:30 am both at Our Lady of Lourdes, 2547 Hebert Road, West Kelowna, BC.

Home height variance approved Mayor votes against, ‘to try to uphold the integrity of our public process.’


SPORTS THE KELOWNA FALCONS hope to have power-hitting outfielder Andrew Godbold on the West Coast League club’s roster soon.

An attempt to “defraud the public process” didn’t sway District of West Kelowna council from approving a controversial variance request Tuesday. Council once again voted in favour of a building height variance for a lot on Lakeview Cove Road in West Kelowna. The variance request

was being reconsidered after district staff discovered a neighbour’s signature had been forged on a letter of support that was considered by council when it initially voted in favour of the variance April 8. Mayor Doug Findlater was the only member of council to vote against the variance reconsideration Tuesday and did so in order to make a statement, he said.

“I’ve wrestled with this a whole lot of the last five or six days,” said Findlater. “It weighs very, very heavily on my mind that there was an attempt to basically defraud our public process by providing a fraudulent letter of support. “I think I have to try to uphold the integrity of our public process.” Earlier this month, James Zeleznik, general manager of Jazel Homes,

of the subject property, according to Magnan. “The house itself… is very reasonable in size (compared) to other homes in that neighbourhood,” said Coun. Gord Milsom. “The request for the height variance is really the result of the grade of the property.” Coun. Rick de Jong said the variance request was a very difficult file to deal with, especially considering the fraudulent letter. “We’ve got to let that rest in the hands of the RCMP at this point in time and we’ve got to look at the facts that are in front of us today,” said Coun. Rick de Jong. “I do think staff has found a happy medium.” Coun. Duane Ophus said he supported the variance because Robert and Patricia Sklar, the owners of the house being constructed, are “most fundamentally at potential harm” if the house doesn’t get built. In a letter sent to the district, the Sklars explained further delays to construction of their home could affect their retirement plans and result in significant financial loss. “I think that we have a particular duty to them to let this house get finished and let them get on with their lives,” said Ophus. Council also unanimously authorized the issuance of a development variance permit for three neighbouring lots, with a maximum height not to exceed that of the house currently being constructed.


admitted to forging Ray Kohut’s signature on a letter that supported the original variance application. Kohut, who lives next door to the house being constructed, was travelling out of country at the time. When Kohut returned, he said he was surprised to see the height of the house next door. He phoned the District of West Kelowna and discovered the fraudulent letter of support. RCMP confirmed last week there is an ongoing investigation related to forgery, but no charges have been laid yet. In his most recent letter to the district, Kohut said he wanted the house next door to be torn down and rebuilt “to the correct height that blends in with the area.” Despite Kohut’s disapproval with the variance request, district planning manager Brent Magnan said staff still recommended council authorize the issuance of a development variance permit to increase the maximum building height from nine to 12.97 metres. That increase is less than the 13.4 metre maximum allowable height council approved April 8. A key consideration was that the zoning bylaw does not necessarily account for the topography

Emmanuel breaks ground Ground was broken on Sunday to begin construction on a new auditorium at Emmanuel Church in West Kelowna. In fulfillment of a 40-year-old dream, Emmanuel Church, the largest church in West Kelowna, is adding onto the gymnasium where they currently worship. “Our founding members had a dream to build a sanctuary on this property when they purchased it in 1978. We’re completing that vision,” said Derrick Hamre, lead pastor at Emmanuel. The congregation has been meeting in West Ke-

lowna and serving the community for 39 years. The church has a strong focus on children and youth outreach, and meeting needs in the community. “West Kelowna’s first food bank began in this church and has gone on to serve the physical and spiritual needs of our district for 30 years,” says Hamre. The multi-purpose design of the addition continues to keep the community in mind and will meet the need for a theatre-style auditorium in West Kelowna. The 15,000 sq. ft. facility will

Work is complete on Brown Road and it will be open to motorists May 31. The road has been closed since March 18 for upgrades as part of the Westbank Centre Revitalization Project. Barricades and fencing will be removed by

the end of Friday. Last August council awarded the $2.5 million contract to R&L Excavating Ltd. for improvements to Brown Road between Main Street and the Gateway Project, just south of Bering Road. The project included:

EMMANUEL church members and local politicians were on hand to break ground for a 15,000 sq. ft. addition which will serve the congregation and community. be the largest capacity building in West Kelowna, besides the arena, and will include a kitchen and a large, open foyer. After planning and fundraising for the $3 mil-

lion project for four years, the leadership and congregation of 700 are excited to partner with Greyback Construction to build their new church. The auditorium is to be completed in

January of 2015. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater and MP Dan Albas were in attendance for the ground-breaking ceremony.

Roadway improvements and repaving, designated parking areas, sidewalks, curb and gutter installations, landscaping, irrigation, street furniture and ornamental lampposts, as well as sewer, drainage and water main upgrades. The total budget was

$3.1 million when factoring the costs of design, inspection and moving overhead utilities underground. The District of West Kelowna credited the federal and provincial governments for providing funding assist-

ance through the Gas Tax Community Works Fund, BC Hydro for aiding in the costs of placing utilities underground and ICBC for safety-related contributions under the Road Improvement Program.

Give your input on carriage houses Carriage homes are currently being considered by the District of West Kelowna and input from the public is needed. The community is asked to complete a short online survey at under Events and Meetings. The survey is open until June 4. Input will help inform the process and council’s deliberation on the matter later this year. Carriage homes are accessory buildings often constructed as second residences. These homes are found in several communities in B.C., including parts of Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton. This type of housing has been on West Kelowna’s radar as an item to consider since council adopted its Official Community Plan three years ago; however, a comprehensive review of the municipality’s zoning bylaw had to be completed first. While on the municipality’s website, residents may want to provide feedback on proposed improvements to the currently undeveloped Wildhorse Park, at the corner of Wildhorse Drive and Ironridge Road.

Any plans to improve the property have been on hold until the adjacent school site is slated for development. With no school construction expected in the near future, Smith Creek residents approached council about the possibility of some interim improvements. Council asked staff to consult the community and put together a plan for upgrades that could be phased in over one to 10 years and still be compatible with long-term plans to put a sports field on the site.

Vancouver Island South regional team. “We set small goals all weekend—playing as a team, not individuals, letting the games come to us, bringing energy to each shift, making good decisions and being mentally strong by not being effected by the scouts, other coaches or officials,” Mitchell added. “But our ultimate goal was to make the final and we did that too”. “I can honestly say that each and every girl contributed to our success. Everyone got on the score sheet but more often doing all the little things right that don’t often get noticed.” The local U14 girls opened with a 65-22 win
