Hunt starts to create buskers’ festival

CHERRY farmer Sukhpal Bal, with Hillcrest Farm Market, is managing a construction site this summer to ensure he has the regulation packing and shipping facility required by the Chinese government at his farm in Rutland. He will assemble a machine which takes 10 to 15 pictures of the cherries to monitor their weight and colour for optimal quality before sending them down a conveyor to be washed, boxed and loaded on a truck without ever hitting the outside air.

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The tester for Kelowna’s busker festival will likely come from the Victoria International Buskers Festival talent pool. Festivals Kelowna is gingerly wading into the street scene extravaganza with plans to speak with John Vickers, organizer of the Island tourism clincher, to see if an artist travelling east can be sent Kelowna’s way when their work in the provincial capital wraps up. “Whenever you do a festival, you want to make sure you do it right. Our community is very lucky, in my mind, and a bit spoiled, in a sense, in that we’ve had some amazing events to enjoy,” said Renata Mills, Festivals Kelowna executive director. “This also means we have some expectations to meet. You don’t want to come out of the gate when you are introducing a new event without a solid plan.” The hosts of a buskers festival enjoy some See Festival A14

With Monday’s announcement of a signed deal to see cherries shipped directly into China, growers are breathing a sigh of relief. Some 400 Canadian cherry growers—most in B.C.—already produce excess product. “Often the North American market will be glutted. Everything is ripening at once and, if there’s an over supply, the price can go in the tank,” said David Geen of Coral Beach Farms. “If you’ve got the option to

make him one of the top growers. “The Chinese have a palate for the product. They value the high sugar and the colour—the deep red is seen as very lucky, and it’s the colour of your blood, so it’s presumed to be very good for your health,” he explained. Three-quarters of Chile’s cherry production already goes directly to the country and the

United States has long shipped to its ports. Canada’s niche is in the late hour of our fruit’s season, August and September as opposed to June and July, and the quality of our science. In addition to producing many of the world’s top varietals at Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland, the sector has developed a brown-sugar test to prove

the crops are pest free. Added to our spray protocols, it was enough to secure a two-year pilot project to see if Canadian cherries couldn’t skip the usual two week cold storage quarantine demands. “Their quarantine pest is the western cherry fruit fly,” explained Sukhpal Bal, president of the B.C. Cherry Association. “That’s really what this deal is all about. In our ne-

gotiations…they wanted cold storage, but we’ve found a systems approach of doing the brown sugar test, as well as our integrated pest management.” Growers essentially mash up a bunch of cherries in a bucket then pour a brown sugar mixture over the fruit and wait 10 minutes; if there are any larva in the sample, they will float to the top. Western cherry fruit fly really is not a problem for B.C. growers says Bal, a fourth-generation Okanagan farmer working a

Recognition to those who quietly serve our community There are many people in the Central Okanagan who contribute in their own small way to enhance their community. For many, that means helping out community or volunteer organizations, often performing tasks that largely go unnoticed beyond those who directly benefit. But because all those contributions, big or small, are valid and noteworthy, that can make a difference in

the life of an individual or family, the Capital News has initiated a new initiative called the Community Leader Awards. This newspaper, with the support of a local advisory committee representing various community groups, is calling on local residents to submit nominations for the awards, which fall under 10 different categories. The categories include coach, mentor, courage, above and beyond,

emergency service, service organization volunteer, volunteer, youth volunteer, environmental leader and community leader. Look to page A38 for the category qualification details. To nominate someone for an award, write a note of about 250 words that includes information such as the length of time a nominee has spent in the community; specific examples of the work and/or contribution he/she has made; community as-

sociations and memberships. Laurel D’Andrea, executive director of the Uptown Rutland Business Association, is a member of a community partners committee that is also involved in the project. “When (Capital News publisher) Karen Hill and Bruce McAuliffe (president, B.C. South, Black Press) came to me with the idea, I thought it was terrific,” D’Andrea said. “The idea of it being directed

to the grassroot volunteer level, to people who help out day after day and get very little recognition I thought was very worthwhile.” The nomination deadline for the Community Leader Awards is Aug. 8. Watch for the ads in the Capital News with contest details. Nominations can also be submitted by email to contests@kelownacapnews.com or online at www.kelownacapnews.com/cla/.

▼ CIVIC ELECTION

Council candidate offers a ‘positive vision’ Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

She may have the same last name and be married to his nephew, but Tracy Gray is not launching her bid for public office in Kelowna on the coattails of the city’s popular outgoing mayor, Walter Gray. “I’ve always driven my own ship and drummed to my own beat,” said Tracy Gray, when asked if she thought her last name will help her at the polls come November. “More people know me for what I have done.” Gray, a successful local businesswoman who owns the Discovery Wines store in Orchard Plaza and is a former general manager of Granville Island Brewing, has also served on the boards of several non-profit groups and volunteered with many others. She cur-

rently sits on the board of Prospera Credit Union. Gray, 44, has lived in Kelowna since 1989 and has a 14-year-old son. She said she feels her experience sitting on different boards would help her as a city councillor because of the training and responsibility the appointments have afforded her, as well as her own experience in the business world. “As a mother, wife and entrepreneur, I feel grateful to be living and working in Kelowna,” said Gray. “I believe we need to look ahead to get Kelowna ready for the next 20 years. In my commitment to civic leadership, I plan to bring a positive vision and be proactive.” On Wednesday, Gray became the first non-incumbent candidate to announce she is running for one of the eight councillor seats that will be up for grabs in this November’s

civic election. While her announcement is considered early, she said she felt it was time to make it because she has been planning her candidacy for the last nine months and the campaign is ready to start. She said she does not fear being forgotten when the usual crush of council candidate announcements starts to roll at the end of the summer because she plans to get out and talk with city residents over the next few months to find out what’s on their mind. As for her message to voters, her announcement speech was business-heavy, with the candidate saying one of her top three focuses will be supporting small, local businesses and keeping commercial taxes down as part of a broader growing community initiative. Following the speech, she said the city’s growth

The city also needs to continue developing its strong relationships with both UBC Okanagan and Okanagan College. But it also needs to “think out of the box”

when it comes to transportation planning, including from a valley-wide perspective, and it needs to take a closer look at its future fire service needs. For her focus on protecting quality of life, she said the city needs to protect the environment, keep residential taxes down and promote healthy life styles. Gray has already

launched a website for her campaign With incumbent Coun. Colin Basran having already announced he will run for mayor, Coun. Robert Hobson saying he likely will not seek re-election after 22 years on council and several other incumbents mulling not running again, this year there are likely to be several vacancies for vot-

ers to fill, as well as passing judgement on those incumbents who do seek re-election. In 2011, 40 people ran for the eight councillor seats, with five incumbents and then-mayor Sharon Shepherd, all losing their seats. Only Hobson, Andre Blanleil and Luke Stack were re-elected from that previous council.

▼ CAR RACE

Three luxury sports car drivers turn Harvey Avenue into a speedway Three luxury sports cars were impounded last Sunday morning after the drivers turned Kelowna streets into their own personal speedway. On June 15 at about

7:50 a.m., a uniformed RCMP officer in a marked police vehicle was stopped at a gas station, at the corner of Harvey Avenue and Spall Road, when he observed

three sports cars accelerate past him. The officer proceeded to follow the trio of cars southbound on Harvey Avenue and watched as they accelerated quick-

ly  from stops and appeared to be racing each other across the city. The officer activated the emergency equipment on his police vehicle and stopped the three cars near

Richter Street for the offense of street racing. The drivers were apparently on their way to a car show. A black Audi R8, yellow Lamborghini and a

red ’66 Corvette were all impounded for a minimum of seven days.  Three men from Kelowna, ages 31, 43 and 44, were each ticketed for driving without due care

and issued 15-day driving prohibitions. Their drivers’ licences could also face further suspensions and the vehicles subject to forfeiture under the Civil Forfeiture Act.

Ursula Cowland, the executive director of the licensing and grants division of the BC Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch, will give a workshop in Kelowna on Thursday, June 26, for not-for-profit groups in the Okanagan and Kootenays. The workshop is being held at Lake City Casino, second story function room, 1300 Water St. in Kelowna, from 2 to 4 p.m. No pre-registration or payment is necessary. Cowlandhas been the executive director looking after gaming grants —from Direct Access and BingoAffiliation, through to today’s community gaming grants—for many years. She knows many of the local not-for-profit groups and their programs very well. “I’m really looking forward to coming. I always learn so much from the groups.” This is an opportunity for hundreds of volunteers to take their questions and concerns directly to the head of the program, and find out more about the current state of gaming funding in B.C., as well as ask specific questions about their own grant applications in the 2014-15 program. The Sport, and Arts and Culture grant intakes closed May 31, and some groups have already been advised of funding. Over the summer, Environment and Public Safety grants will be received (deadline Aug. 31). Then, the largest intake of the year across the province—Human and Social Services—begins, running from Aug. 1 to Nov. 30. Overall, thousands of grant applications are received every year. Any organization with questions, new board members or volunteers, or new staff, should plan to attend. The Central Okanagan Charitable Gaming Association, organizers of the workshop, has been helping local charitable organizations seek and receive gaming funding from the provincial government for a number of years. The COCGA is a registered not-for-profit society operated by a volunteer board of directors. For more information email Caroline Miller, cmiller@kelownachamber.org, or call 250-469-7358.

OLD AND NEW…The new 24,100-square-foot Kelowna Yacht Club building (background) is

taking shape a short distance from the old club house (foreground). Once the new building is complete—expected later this summer—the old one will be demolished to make way for an expansion of Stuart Park, located to the south. In addition to the $5.5-million new clubhouse, the city is improving the Okanagan lakefront promenade in front of it.

Be a weed warrior–help fight the spread of invasive weeds The invasion has started. Quietly, pesky weeds have started sprouting up in fields and empty lots, acreages and naturally growing yards across the Central Okanagan.

Some disguise themselves with attractive flowers. Others, start as a single stalk but if left to mature, spew forth thousands of seeds to continue their weedy assault.

Be a good neighbour and help reduce the threat posed by these invading species that choke out native plants that are expected to grow in the Okanagan.

The regional district’s noxious weed bylaw is in force throughout the Central Okanagan East and West Electoral Areas, the City of Kelowna, District of Lake Country and District of Peachland. Bylaw officer Kim Mussenden says residents can easily arm themselves with information to help keep invasive weeds in check. “By visiting www. regionaldistrict.com/ weeds” she says, “people can see photos of some of our most serious offenders and get to the ‘root’ of the problem, by cutting or pulling these plant threats. A little information and knowledge can go a long way in helping people identify species that if left unchecked and growing in our yards and properties, can prevent native plants from growing.” Right now, some of the biggest weed threats taking root in the Central Okanagan include western goat’s-beard that looks like a tall dandelion with a much larger, round seed ball and wild mustard, with its small, bright yellow flower that can reduce crop value and yields and curtail livestock forage production on pastures. Other varieties of weeds that are common problems in the region include knapweeds, purple loosestrife and the prickly members of the thistle family, like Scotch thistle.

Some of the displaced residents are expected to be transported to Kelowna’s Gospel Mission, according to spokeswoman Ami Catriona. “I know there were 17 people that were displaced. I don’t know if all of them will be coming to the mission,” she said, adding the non-profit was asked to help Wednesday morning by a worker from the B.C.

Canada Day apple bin paint-in The Kelowna Art Gallery will once again celebrate Canada Day by hosting its annual Apple Bin Paint-In on Tuesday, July 1, between 10 a.m. and noon. This popular family art activity takes place outdoors at the Kelowna Art Gallery, where community members of all ages are invited to paint their artistic visions on a side of an apple bin. “The Apple Bin Paint-In is such a pleasure to be a part of,” said Renée Burgess, head of public programming at the Kelowna Art Gallery. “Not only does it provide a fun way to engage children with art, but it instills confidence in their own creative abilities by seeing their work displayed to the public.” Thirty apple bins will be delivered to the Gallery from B.C. Tree Fruits for the event. After they are painted, these colourful bins will be kept on display outdoors

for a number of days before being picked up and delivered to local orchards for use in harvesting this year’s apple crop. A number of community partners help to make this event possible each year. Westwood Fine Cabinetry has kindly offered to transport the apple bins to and from the Gallery. Benjamin Moore Kelowna has generously donated the paint for this event. The Apple Bin Paint-In is also supported by BC Tree Fruits and Q103.1. This event is free and open to the public, but pre-booking is required. The Apple Bin Paint-Inis always a popular event so be sure to reserve your spot early by calling the Kelowna Art Gallery at 250-762-2226. Participants and spectators are invited to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Kelowna Community Food Bank. For more information visit the website www.kelownaartgallery.com.

Charter rights help provide legal balance ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott criminal investigations. If the government ignores our rights, and there are no consequences to take them to task, do we really have rights?  Throwing out that breathalyzer result was simply a consequence to the government for the police choice to ignore the drunk’s rights. Would I prefer for the drunk to have been convicted? Yes, of course.  That goal would have been achieved had the police officer simply respected the drunk’s basic Charter rights. I want the police and every other government agency to respect my basic Charter rights, those of my family, friends, and those of all Canadian citizens. You can be comforted in learning that evidence is not thrown out “willy nilly.” A decision of the Supreme Court of Canada released on June 13, 2014, is an example of the court carefully considering whether or not ill-gotten evidence should

be thrown out.  The case is also an example of how all of us Canadians benefit by the continual attempts of defence lawyers to define and enforce our Charter rights. The case is R. v. Spencer, and can be found online by searching the name of the accused and the docket number: “Spencer 34644.” Mr. Spencer was using an Internet file sharing program called LimeWire, which allows a vast network of users to download movies, music and other materials directly from each other’s computers. I learned from reading the case that it doesn’t take the exercise of police investigation powers to find out a LimeWire user’s “Internet Protocol” address (IP).  It does, however, take the exercise of police powers to force the Internet Service Provider, in this case Shaw Communications Inc., to obtain the name and address of the subscriber connected to that IP address. In this case, “force” was simply a written request. It felt a bit of an invasion of my privacy to learn that my IP address, which can be used to learn what websites I go to, is so readily available.  I felt naked when I

learned that my IP address can be translated into my name and address by a simple request of a police officer to my Internet Service Provider. Mr. Spencer’s lawyer used the Charter to challenge that written request.   The court found that a police officer must obtain a warrant, issued by a judge, to obtain that private, personal information from an Internet Service Provider.   This doesn’t hold back justice, by the way, a judge will issue the warrant if there is evidence of criminal activity. It just protects our collective right to privacy as Canadian citizen. The court had to go on to decide whether or

not Mr. Spencer should “walk” from a child pornography conviction as a result of the police failure to obtain a warrant.  The court noted that it must “assess and balance the effect of admitting the evidence on society’s confidence in the justice system” and struck the balance on the side of upholding Mr. Spencer’s conviction. I didn’t participate in the online poll, but I agree that our Charter of Rights and Freedoms is among the top accomplishments that make me proud to be Canadian.

t can seem to be the worst of injustices— the police do their job and catch a bad guy but his fancy lawyer gets him off on a technicality and the bad guy walks.  The technicality is usually based on some insignificant sounding “breach” of the bad guy’s “Charter rights.” The way the technicality works is that some piece of evidence the police have gathered to prove the crime occurred is “thrown out.” If the trial is with a jury, the evidence is kept hidden from the jury. If the trial is by judge alone, the judge uses his or her magic powers to pretend the evidence was never gathered. A classic example is the drunk driver who gets off because the breathalyzer results are thrown out.  The police require him to blow into a breathalyzer machine that proves without a shadow of a doubt that the drunk was driving at three times the legal limit.  The results of the breathalyzer are thrown out because the police officer didn’t say the Charter-required “magic words” to the stumbling drunk offering him a chance to talk to a lawyer before blowing. Everyone in the courtroom knows he is guilty as sin, but he walks. Our Charter rights, by the way, are a list of rights contained within Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms that became part of our constitution in 1982.  Incidentally, the results of an online poll of about 12,000 Canadians were just released, the poll identifying the Charter as third among Canada’s accomplishments of the last 150 years that made the participants “most proud to be a Canadian.” How can something that results in such injustice be held in such high regard? Our Charter rights are the rights of Canadian citizens owed to us by the government. The criminal court room happens to be where the incredible power of the government most directly comes into conflict with the rights of private citizens.  It is no surprise that Charter rights have been so vigorously tested and defined in the context of how the police, agents of the government, conduct

Pipeline far from a sure thing

P

rime Minister Stephen Harper’s signing off on initial approval of the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal had to be the worst kept secret in Ottawa. But the impact of Harper’s decision for getting the pipeline construction underway is still a long-term proposition, fraught with many potential court and protest battles. At that stage, it may not even be Enbridge at the helm, its corporate name having become such a public relations poison to

northern B.C. aboriginal opponents, non-native area residents and environmentalists. The company’s public relations campaign has been a disaster, to the extent that someone else may have to step in and run with the pipeline concept. But make no mistake, the road to the pipeline becoming a reality ultimately rests in the North Coast region hands of the Haida, Gitgaat, Heiltsuk and Haisla First Nations, all so far registering their opposition to the pipeline, and perhaps more so to

Enbridge. When Black Press chairman David Black, a proponent of one of what is now two oil refinery proposals for Kitimat to refine the Alberta bitumen crude, recently spoke at a Kelowna Chamber of Commerce in favour of his multi-billion refinery idea, he offered two interesting observations. One was that the potential political hit to Harper’s party by signing off on the pipeline could be significant in the next federal election, such is the negative

a t a M

feelings reflected by British Colv umbians in poll after poll on the d pipeline idea. c c The other was the importance of winning over the aboriginal opponents or see the project t s locked up in the courts for years. t As all politics are local, we think Harper believes economic benefits and old fashioned deal ▼ making will sway northern B.C. opposition, while the rest of us may stop paying attention. But a few Conservative MPs might be a little nervous how this plays out in the next federal election. i

cent into health. While these numbers are interesting, the really interesting aspect is the shift of program choice by students over the last 10 years. Since 2004, the number of students entering health programs has increased by 144 per cent. Growth in this sector is attributed to our aging population and associated increased demand in health services. During this same time business management enrolment increased by 37 per cent. Although there is a lot of discussion about economic growth in B.C., and this tends to be tied to resource extraction, this number is significant because for every organization in business, professionals are required to manage corporations in-

cluding accountants. Engineering and applied sciences grew by one per cent and the trades increased by four per cent since 2004. This is where I suspect we might see significant growth if the government is able to open up seats in these programs and offer students financial aid incentives. Currently, the government is exploring ways to provide financial assistance to students entering apprenticeship programs. This data tells us that students who are considering a post-secondary credential are starting to look at programs that provide direct job outcomes. Each of these program clusters tend to house a number of programs tied to accreditation bodies

such as certified professional accountants, licensed practical nurses, professional engineers, and red seal journey persons. This data also bodes well for recent initiatives by the government to have students enrol in programs tied to economic development such as liquefied natural gas. Most students graduating from high school today would probably like to mature into young adults who have the financial means to support themselves. This hasn’t been the case for many students in the past and is probably the driving force behind their educational choice. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

TIMELESS QUALITY & COMFORT

Bad place chosen for municipal hall To the editor: Stormy waters ahead, as West Kelowna’s district council has a chosen a favoured site for the new Municipal Hall. And where is their favoured site? Well it’s in downtown Westbank of course. Not even remotely central for residents. No, residents will have to travel to almost the southern boundary to use these facilities. For many

of us, the Kelowna City Hall would be closer. I am sure the We Love Westbank community is ecstatic. Their tissue waving campaigns since the District of West Kelowna’s formation in late 2007 have quite possibly paid off. But one should remember that only 51.1 per cent were in favour of incorporation over the amalgamation with the City of

Kelowna. It is my belief that many voters stayed home at that time because they thought amalgamation was a done deal. I strongly believe that is supported by the turnout, roughly a year later, that rejected Westbank as a possible name and chose West Kelowna instead. Mayor Findlater appears to be advocating a referendum on the location, but whether he has

council’s support is another matter. Without a referendum, it would be my opinion that the We Love Westbank and Save Historical Westbank supporters have achieved their objective. Without a referendum, I would suggest DWK’s northern border means absolutely nothing to the DWK council, and those living north of Daimler or Bartley and Hwy.

97 South would be better served by linking ourselves with the City of Kelowna. Somebody suggested the Bartley and Hwy. 97 South area, near Byland’s [for the municipal hall]. Why not appease no one and steer a neutral course. It could be much safer. David W. Kuhn, West Kelowna

Questions for the BCTF and B.C. government What exactly are the differences between the stage one job action and the lockout? I know that they differed by 15 minutes on the beginning and end of each day. But other than that, I can’t see the difference. Could you explain? Could you point me to the document that states that the WCB would not cover you in the event of an accident on a field trip? I have seen something to this effect, but it was not completely clear. Did BCTF members know that their bargaining team were going to demand a $5,000 signing bonus? Do BCTF members really believe this is realistic? Following are some questions I am sending to Christie Clark: Why has your government been underfunding education for at least the last 14 years? Why did your government strip the BCTF contract in 2002 and then continue to appeal the decisions of two courts? Why does your government continue to churn out new curriculum with new vocabulary which is really re-hashing that which al-

To the editor: Teachers must perform very difficult and intricate tasks every day. I have said, more than once, that teaching is a noble profession. I’ve also made it very clear that I do not support the government, nor do I support the BCTF. I support teachers. In this regard, I wonder if any BCTF members could answer a few questions for me: Referring to the BC Teachers Federation bargaining proposal number U64, dated June 3, 2014: Why have the demands for prep time not been published? The BCTF are proposing 180 minutes per week for elementary school teachers by 2016. That is double what they get now. For secondary teachers, they are asking for an additional one day of prep time per week on top of the 12.5 per cent they get now. If my math is correct, one day equals 20 per cent. This adds up to a total of 32.5 per cent prep time. Could you please explain to me why this is reasonable? And I suppose I could ask, facetiously perhaps, when will prep-time negotiations stop, when they reach 100 per cent?

Honoring Your Father Last Sunday was Fathers’ Day. Families across our nation honored their fathers with cards, gifts of every description, telephone calls and special meals lovingly prepared at home or enjoyed at a restaurant. God has a special place in His heart for fathers. God has this special place in His heart for fathers because they are accountable for their families and responsible for their families’ lives. The father is the shepherd of his family and as such, responsible for leading his flock along life’s pathway. The father is the breadwinner. He is typically responsible for providing for his family’s needs. However, today in most families, the father and the mother must work outside the home to provide a good lifestyle for their family. The father is a role model. He teaches his children to sacrifice, to put the needs of the family first. By his example, he instills in his children the values he holds dear and his work ethic. By his example in daily life, a father teaches his children what it means to be a father and a husband. By his example a father teaches his children about faith in God and its expression. Many fathers across our land bring families to church regularly and made sure that their families receive a proper Christian education. I thank God for my father. By his example in matters of life and faith, he instilled in me the values I hold dear and my work ethic. He taught me what it means to be a man, husband, father and a man of faith. By the words of the Fourth Commandment, God requires men and women of all ages to: “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:12). To “honor” your father is to love him and to hold him in high esteem. Love and esteem for your father is shown through obedience. In many and various ways children esteem and obey their fathers. However, more often than we are willing to admit, we do not hold our fathers’ in high esteem. As an antidote to this propensity in his children, God has placed in many a father’s heart a precious gift, the ability to forgive his children when they do not esteem or obey him. When I disobeyed my father and/or did not give him the respect he deserved, he forgave me. His example inspires me to do the same. There was a time when God actually directed children not to obey their father. Through the prophet Ezekiel God spoke these words: “I said to their children in the wilderness, “Do not follow the statutes of your parents or keep their laws or defile yourselves with their idols. I am the Lord your God; follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” (Ezekiel 20:18-19). God was referring to the Exodus. God had brought His chosen people out of the bondage of slavery in Egypt through miracles; including the ten plagues God unleashed against their Egyptian slave masters, and parting the Red Sea and then leading His people safely through the sea. He gave them the Law, which included the Ten Commandments as the Law’s crowning glory. The people agreed to obey the Law and to worship God alone. Within days of receiving the Law, the people began worshiping a golden calf. God promised to lead them in the conquest of the Holy Land. They doubted God and refused to walk with Him into the Promised Land. God made them wander in the desert for 40 years, until the disobedient generation passed away. The children of the disobedient generation entered the Promised Land. God told that generation, and every generation since, not to follow their parents when their parents do not follow God. In every generation some sons and daughters have disobeyed their parents and have obeyed God. Every day sons and daughters hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are transformed by Jesus. These sons and daughters disobey their fathers and begin to follow God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Every day these sons and daughters face persecution from their family of origin, extended family and their fellow citizens. Please come to Grace Lutheran Church on Sunday June 29th at 6:00 PM and be informed, touched and inspired. In Christ’s service, Pastor Ed Skutshek

Landmark deal for cherry growers Cherry from A1 100-acre plot off Highway 33. Farmers use a range of chemicals with strict protocols on when to spray, how much to

spray and how long after the fruit has been treated to harvest. Nevertheless, the pilot program established to test their claims saw two Chinese inspectors spend

The cherry industry as it has developed in the Okanagan • The Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre in Summerland developed varietals like: Sweetheart, lapins, Sentennial and Sovereign • The Canadian Food Inspection Agency spearheaded the recent trade mission, while B.C. Minister of Agriculture Norm Letnick and federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz signed the deal which fosters millions in business for cherry growers, blueberry producers and ranchers in under-30-month bone-in beef. • As a soft fruit, cherries are a high-demand crop, picked individually so the stems are left on. They are extremely susceptible to weather and bird damage. • Growers have done everything, including hiring helicopters and mounting blowers to the back of tractors, to dry the fruit when storms hit in the critical last few weeks of development. • The level of rigour the Chinese government asked for is several steps beyond the demands farmers met to secure deals with Taiwan and Europe.

the entire summer in Canada last year—costs largely paid by industry— clearing every single shipment bound for China. This year, the inspectors will only be on the ground for a two week audit, ensuring the growers registered to ship are following the established requirements, like stationing fruit fly traps at mandatory minimums through each orchard, and setting up fully-sealed shops so the fruit can come directly off the production line in a cold environment and onto a truck, without potential contamination from the open air. Cherries have a onemonth shelf life, so skipping the two weeks of cold storage other countries have been required to wait out is a big advantage. “From what I’m hearing, the rest of the world is quite jealous we’re getting

in without the requirement, which is to keep the cherries just above zero before they’re shipped,” said Bal. With apple prices falling, orchardists have been planting cherries for some years in hopes of finding a crop with livable returns, and Bal sees this deal as a landmark moment likely to alter the landscape of his world. “Maybe 20 years down the road, we’ll look back on the signing of this agreement as the moment that reshaped the industry, and perhaps even the Okanagan,” he said. “My goal is to raise the profile of cherries. I love the wine industry and all that, but they kind of take a lot of the spotlight. We’re hoping to show the public that we grow some excellent cherries here that are sought after around the world.” jsmith @kelownacapnews.com

The Trips were a regular Thursday evening act last summer and the crowds only grew as they tossed melodies back and forth in the hot summer evenings. “There’s a number of assets Kelowna has in terms of being a stop along the way,” said Mills, noting our sunny summers cannot be underplayed in this milieu.

This does not mean that there is nothing new coming out and fans of musicals, ’50s rock and Clint Eastwood as a director will want to check out Jersey Boys.

Based upon the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, it tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and how they went from a blue-collar life to selling 175 million records before they were 30. Director Eastwood is best known for his gritty acting roles and directing dramas like the Academy Award-winning Million Dollar Baby and

However, he has a long history as a musician, composing the soundtrack and contributing songs to many of his movies plus he directed Bird, the bio-pic about jazz musician Charlie “Bird” Parker.

Volunteers make a difference at pregnancy care centre Theresa White and Jeannie Rodgers CONTRIBUTORS

From the birth of the Okanagan Valley Pregnancy Care Centre in May 2006, we’ve boasted about our elite volunteer force. They’ve given us cause. The heart of every OVPCC volunteer is 100 per cent for her—the distressed woman seeking support to face an unexpected pregnancy. The volunteer’s primary concern, as a non-medical peer counsellor, is always for her health and safety. In eight years, 800 client-friends have found free and confidential support at the Pregnancy Centre in the Southgate Centre on Pandosy. Most have been referred by medical and social service professionals. Many self-refer, calling first or

coming in unannounced, alone or with friends or family support. No matter her age or circumstance, she is welcomed to a safe and respectful environment. Offered information on pregnancy options, she receives the gift of time to listen to her heart. She sees a reflection of the radically kind and generous character of Jesus. Ranging from college to retirement age, volunteers contribute to options peer counsel and pregnancy loss recovery, to running parenting and personal integrity programs; from stocking baby supplies to assisting

with administrative tasks. Asked to note high points of their OVPCC tenure, volunteers presented an extensive list. Here’s a sampling: • Helping a client deliver her baby • Seeing the lives of women and men transformed for the better • Being amazed at the giving hearts of people in the community • Growing into a better person from the training course and ongoing teaching • Seeing miracles in changed lives, including in my own • Working as community, in its healthiest

CENTRAL OKANAGAN

CONTRIBUTED

BLENK Development has invested significantly in habitat and safe migration paths for the western painted turtle.

Need more green space? It’s in Wilden’s nature Spread throughout the wilderness north of Knox Mountain Park, flanked by Okanagan Lake to the west and the Glenmore valley to the east, Wilden is the largest master-planned community between Vancouver and Calgary. More than half of the 2,000 acres is preserved in its natural state. The diverse landscape encompasses exposed mountain ridges, forested groves, rolling hills and extensive wetlands. Neighbourhoods are nestled amid mature trees, on hillsides, and beside picturesque ponds. It is a place where residents exist in harmony with nature. From the day Gerhard Blenk purchased the raw land, his plan was to sensitively grow the Wilden community in a way that would sustain the area’s natural ecosystems and preserve space for wildlife. Years before the first homes were ever built, a master plan was meticulously thought out, en-

vironmental studies were conducted, and water levels were monitored in the many wetlands that existed. The goal was to preserve the habitat of the wide variety of species living in and around the Wilden ponds as well as in the uplands. Initial environmental studies were carried out in 1998. These studies informed the subsequent development and approval of an Area Structure Plan. As work began in 2001, Kyle Hawes, senior natural resource biologist and co-founder of Ecoscape Environmental Consultants, became involved with the project to work with Blenk Development on wetland protecti on and enhancement and, in some areas, expansion. “The developer’s environmental investment was certainly ahead of the norm for the time,” says Hawes. “Incorporating environmental planning in the early stages of the

master plan helped to ensure that important habitats were preserved and connectivity with other habitat areas was maintained.” The design of the master plan is that these interconnected natural areas will remain even after the last home is built. Extensive studies undertaken at the outset to clarify the condition of the ponds showed that certain

areas needed restoration work where past rural and recreational impacts had been considerable. “Many of the ponds had been impacted in the past,” Hawes remembers. “Some areas used to be dumps or gravel pits, while others had been persistently impacted by recreation vehicle use. “Many of those impairments have since been removed. Furthermore,

additional areas were excavated to increase the size of some of the wetlands and the critical habitat they provide.” But there was more to planning a sustainable ecosystem in Wilden than restoring the ponds. Russ Foster, vice-president and chief executive officer of Blenk Development, has managed the project from day one. “Extensive hydro-

logical studies were completed to better understand water flow throughout the site and develop an overall stormwater management plan,” Foster says. “Both are vital to maintaining water levels and water quality in our ponds and wetlands. “Dams were reconstructed and flow control structures were installed to enhance wetland areas where stormwater is intercepted. “Biofiltration areas were constructed to treat the water before it enters into the ponds. “Extensive planting restoration along the shores was also part of the pre-development process. “In every step we worked in close cooperation with biologists and environmental consultants to make sure that we would provide functional habitats.” Blenk Development’s groundbreaking work in Wilden, which ranges from wetland preservation to thoughtful road and lot planning, has

since resulted in new standards for sensitive land use and hillside development in the Okanagan. The Blenk Development team continues to work closely with Ecoscape to ensure that the protection and preservation of nature in Wilden is a priority. Part of this includes educating residents and controlling usage of the land in more remote, still untouched areas where the use of motorized vehicles is strictly forbidden.

Neighbourhood designed to co-exist with Mother Nature “Incorporating environmental planning in the early stages of the master plan helped to ensure that important habitats were preserved and connectivity with other habitat areas was maintained.” —Kyle Hawes, natrural resource biologist, Ecoscape Environmental Consultants Wilden from A19 move in. It showcases the various plants and animals in the area and offers guidelines for living in harmony with them. “Providing this sort of education makes people understand the value of the natural environment,” says Hawes. “Wilden residents know the importance of giving the wildlife its space. “Important to this is keeping their cats indoors and their dogs on leash so as not to harass the many waterfowl species and wildlife that frequent the ponds or the diversity of songbirds that nest in the area during the spring and summer.” For their cooperation, families in Wilden are rewarded by the beauty and tranquillity of the natural setting, enhanced by

the sights and sounds of birds, waterfowl, rare aquatic life, and deer living in their neighbourhood. “The Wilden wetlands continue to provide habitat for waterfowl: cinnamon teal, mallard, American coot, common goldeneye, American widgeon, and redhead are just a few of them. The ponds are an important stopover for migration,” Hawes explains. “But not only the ponds themselves; their connectivity is vital to healthy wildlife populations. To help facilitate wildlife movement between wetlands, safe underpasses beneath the roads are being incorporated in the development. “The western painted turtle, which is a species of conservation concern, can migrate more safely across Union Road

through a tunnel. “This tunnel is used by other animals as well, which reduces the risk of road mortality. “At the same time, however, increased awareness of the turtle’s movement between wetlands is encouraged so that people will take greater care when driving through Wilden.” It will take at least another two decades to completely build out the Wilden community. Having a master plan in place ensures that development will always be controlled, density will be kept low, and connected green pockets will preserve plant and animal life in the best possible way. This means that “Nature Inspired Living” is a promise Wilden will always keep. Even future generations of Wilden residents can rely on it.

WILDEN’S expansive wetlands are preserved as a habitat for waterfowl and aquatic animals.

You no longer have to worry if you left the air conditioning on or not before you leave the house. You can simply check the status of your thermostat through your computer or your smartphone and turn it off if you forgot. As an added bonus, you can turn it on just before you get back if you are returning home on a particularly hot day.

LIGHTING AND APPLIANCES

You can also control appliances and your lighting remotely using the same interactive technology, so you can make sure appliances are shut off and make it look like someone is home by switching lights on and off in the evening. All this control is accessible by logging in to your myprotectron.com account from your personal computer, BlackBerry, Android, iPhone app or any web-enabled device. For more information check out the website www.protectron.com.

Techie methods to help protect the backyard garden One of the ironies of gardening is the more we turn to nature by planting and growing our own vegetables and flowers, the more nature tries to turn us back with her own array of pests, critters and damaging weather. All manner of creatures that crawl, hop, browse, leap and munch can make short work of our hard work, as can heat and drought. But gardeners are looking now beyond the tried-and-true methods to protect their plants, by adding technology-based measures for broader protection.

WILD ANIMALS

To keep deer away from flower beds and vegetable patches, the surest method is to stretch a fence around them, one

that it at least 2.5 metres high and secured at the bottom to prevent deer from nosing under the barrier. According to GardenGuides.com, to ward off rabbits, add a 60 centimetres high wire mesh fence with holes no larger than one inch so the animals can’t squeeze through. Bury the bottom of the fence at least four inches into the ground and bend it outward so the rabbits can’t dig under it.

INSECTS

A natural way to discourage aphids (plant lice) is to grow plants that attract their predators, like ladybugs, hoverflies, parasitic wasps, lacewings and praying mantis. You can find information about appropriate plants from your

local gardening store or from a variety of gardening websites.

BAD GROWING CONDITIONS

Ensure your plants are receiving proper nutrients, temperature, watering and light with a new type of sensor from Parrot, called Flower Power. It’s a wireless plant monitor that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth Smart (low energy) and via a free app, it displays real-time information on soil moisture, fertilizer, ambient temperature and light intensity. This sensor is available online from Parrot, Future Shop and Best Buy. Protecting your plants can be simpler when combining old-fashioned remedies with newly developed technology.

Home garden tours are a great source for inspiration

I

don’t think I need to tell you this is one of the best times of the year to enjoy roses and just generally garden colours. I recommend taking a Sunday drive around the many beautiful Central Okanagan neighbourhoods and get some ideas for your own property. Then again, wouldn’t it be better and much more comfortable to be invited into several gardens with no concerns about taking pictures and asking questions about

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett what you see? We are fortunate to have two garden tours this month that enable people to do just that. The first one took place last Saturday, the 17th annual Kelowna Garden Tour.

If you missed that opportunity to wind your way through Kelowna to large estate properties in vineyard and city settings, relaxing backyard retreats, heritage gardens and an urban farm, another similar event is coming up this weekend. By the way, funds raised from last weekend’s event will go to support such gardening initiatives as Growing Chefs, an elementary classroom gardening and cooking program sponsored by the Okanagan Chefs Associ-

ation, and Central Okanagan Community Gardens, helping neighbourhoods and communities create sustainable green spaces for gardening, food production, gathering and education But coming up this Saturday is the annual Lake Country Garden Tour, which has been held for a number of years. This time, nine gardens will be part of the tour, open for viewing on Saturday, June 21. Master Gardeners will be on hand at each

property to answer all your questions and there will be at least one artist in each garden displaying their art. At three of the properties, there will be special garden related presentations. The first is a planting demo by Heather Doheny entitled Tablescape and Patioscape…outside the box, at 10 a.m. and noon. At 11 a.m. and 1p.m., Ken Salvail will give a talk on Pesticide free Gardening. At noon and again at

3 p.m., the Invasive Species Council of BC will present a talk on Invasive Ornamental Plants. On top of all that, several sponsors will be offering discounts on their products and there will be a “Toonie” raffle as well. Tickets for this event can be purchased at Kel-Lake Greenhouses, Woodsdale General Store, Winfield IDA, The Greenery, Bylands Garden Centre, Art Knapp

Plantland in Kelowna and Vernon. Whether you are an avid gardener or just appreciate beautiful gardens, taking a home garden tour is the best way to source ideas and enjoy a beautiful Okanagan day in June. Tune in to The Don Burnett Garden Show on AM 1150 News Talk Sports on Saturday from 8 to 10 a.m.

Energy saving tips

A recent survey by Direct Energy found that control of the thermostat is one of the most common household disputes. With energy prices on the rise this summer, Dave Walton, director of home ideas for Direct Energy, offers suggestions for saving money while you keep the family cool:.Install a programmable thermostat: Set the times and temperatures to match your schedule. Also, consider setting the thermostat to turn off your air conditioner at night. Ceiling fans: In the summer months, fan blades should operate in a counter-clockwise direction to move the air downwards and maximize circulation so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard. Replace furnace filters every three months: This will help your air conditioner run more efficiently. Cover windows: Before you leave the house remember to close the curtains and drapes, especially on south and west facing windows to block out the high summer sun and stop the home from getting too hot inside.

We’re more than a place... We’re an opportunity.

When Jenna was 14 years old, she stumbled upon a flyer for Silver Lake Camp and thought it would be a fun thing to do that summer. She didn’t realize what going to camp would soon mean to her or where it would take her over the next 3 years.

Jenna. “It is a chance for kids to get away from electronic devices, and experience nature. It is a great place to work with them too because they genuinely want to be there. Many of the children at camp are sponsored by the Y, and it is an opportunity they wouldn’t normally have.”

and growth experience. Between the ages of 14-17, kids are really impressionable and through these years, Silver Lake Camp has made a big impact on my life. I can’t wait to show other kids the same experience I had and know they won’t want to leave either.”

“My parents encouraged me to go,” Jenna explains. “And I am so glad they did.” That year, Jenna decided to join a leadership program at Silver Lake Camp and ended up staying for a total of 5 weeks— she just didn’t want to leave. Over the next few years at camp, Jenna completed her Leadership Development training, impacted the lives of many young campers, and grew into the person she is today.

This year, Jenna was asked to join YMCA’s Youth Exchange program where she had the chance to travel to Ontario for an unforgettable experience and education on Canada’s culture across the country. She has also now come full circle and has officially been hired on as a Camp Counsellor at Silver Lake for summer 2014 where she will be able to put her passion and leadership skills to good use.

In 2013, over 100 teens built confidence, gained independence and became more engaged in their communities through participation in Leadership Development programs through the YMCA of Okanagan.

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.

▼ CENTRAL OKANAGAN

Sports Hall of Fame welcomes new inductees

STAFF REPORTER

A decade removed from that championship Sunday afternoon in May, it remains one of the defining moments in the history of sports in the Central Okanagan. In front of an electrified hometown crowd at Prospera Place, the WHL-champion Kelowna Rockets captured their first and only Memorial Cup title with a dramatic 2-1 victory over the Gatineau Olympiques. To officially honour the occasion 10 years later, the 2004 Rockets team will be one of four inductees to be enshrined this November into the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame. Current Rockets’ assistant coach Dan Lambert said the club’s championship run of 2003-04 will conjure up some remarkable memories for team management, players and fans alike. “It’s a moment that you can reflect that it’s been 10 years, and now you have a true understanding of how difficult is to win a Memorial Cup,” Lambert said. “To be inducted 10 years later, obviously you have some players who have moved on and are in the NHL, and other guys who are in every aspect of life. I’m sure they’ll get back together and it’s as if they’ll be back in the dressing room again, reliving it. “It’s a very special moment, not only for the

team and management, but for the city,” he added. “I think everybody’s going to look back an appreciate the accomplishments that team had.”

never said you couldn’t do it. If you wanted it badly enough, just do it, work hard…and boy did he work hard.”

MIKE AND BRENDA VAN TIGHEM—BUILDERS

GILLIAN THOMSON— BUILDER

The other inductees are: Gillian Thomson first made her mark in sailing as an elite competitor, winning a gold and silver medal at the 1992 and 1993 Hobie 18 women’s world championships, then a silver medal in the Trapseat 16 Pan American Games in 1998. Thomson has since garnered provincial, national and international recognition for helping to grow the sport through her Learn to Sail and Disabled Sailing programs. For Thomson, the recognition from her home community is both humbling and rewarding. “Sport in Kelowna has always been a big part of my life and my family’s life,” Thompson said. “The Hall of Fame was exciting when it was developed a few years ago, I didn’t expect to be standing up here with the inductees…it’s really a big honour. I think that sport in Kelowna is a big part of the culture, just to be part of that connection is thrilling.”

Mike and Brenda Van Tighem touched the lives of many young athletes during their time in Kelowna. Among their many initiatives, Mike helped found the Kelowna Track and Field Club in 1983 and spearheaded the Jack Brow Memorial Meet, one of the premier track events in B.C. Brenda spent 12 years as a coach with the Kelowna Track and Field Club coached Team B.C. athletes at nationals from K 1990 to 2000. Together, the Van Tighems coached a number of national and international calibre athletes, including Malindi Elmore, Brenda Shackleton and Tracy Melesko. “This a tremendous honour,” the Van Tighems, who now live in Calgary, wrote in a statement. “An honour that’s only been made possible by a small group of people who had the foresight and initiative to found the Kelowna Track and Field Club in 1983.” The 2014 Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Museum induction ceremony will be held Nov. 20 at the Coast Capri Hotel beginning at 7 a.m. Tickets for the breakfast gala will be available at Kelowna Museums.

Rangers take Blanleil Memorial Tourney

WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

KELOWNA Rangers’ pitcher Rich Haldane gets set to unleash a pitch while Travis

Kunz readies himself at first against the Fleetwoods Marlins during the final game of the Andre Blanleil Sr. Memorial Fastball Tournament Sunday at King’s Stadium.

Dramatic final game action in Andre Blanleil Sr. MemorialTournament

Aside from a rain out on Friday night, the third annual Andre Blanleil Sr. Memorial Fastball Tournament went off pretty much without a hitch last weekend at King’s Stadium. The four-team tourney concluded Sunday afternoon with the Kelowna Rangers edging the Fleetwood Marlins in dramatic

fashion in the final game. George Currie’s base hit in the seventh inning drove home winning pitcher Rich Haldane with the deciding run as the Rangers prevailed 5-4. The Rangers finished the round robin in first place with a record of 2-1.  The semi final saw the Fleetwood Marlins beat the Surrey Rebels

Contribute to academic/ athlete scholarship fund

The inaugural KSER Scholarship Golf Fundraiser will be held Thursday, Aug. 28 at Gallagher’s Canyon Golf and Country Club. Olympic silver medalist Kelsey Serwa is in the process of searching for partner sponsors for the event. Items are also being sought to add to the silent auction. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the KSER Scholarship Fund, which focuses on funding Grade 12 student-athletes from Kelowna who excel in both athletics and academics. 

Serwa will also be handing out the first ever KSER Scholarship Award to a student from her alma mater, KSS. Cost for the tournament is $150 per person and includes green fees, power cart, range basket, barbecue dinner and a drink. More than $15,000 in silent auction prizes will be available to bid on. Serwa’s goal is to raise $25,000 for the KSER Fund. For more information, contact Kelsey at kelsey@kelseyserwa.com or V778-215-5842.

7-4.  The host Andre’s Athletics had a tough weekend going 0-3. The tournament is held annually on Father’s Day weekend in the memory of longtime Kelowna player and coach Andre Blanleil Sr., Andre Sr.’s grandson and organizer Kyle Blanleil was once again pleased by the response to

the event. “There were four really good teams and we saw some good competition,” said Kyle Blanleil. “We didn’t get as many teams this year because of another tournament in Chase, but the guys from out of town who came told me how much they enjoyed it and that they’d be back next year.” As for what his late grandfather would think about the tournament, Kyle Blanleil suspects Andre Sr. would be pleased, if not thrilled. “I think he’d be pretty happy,” Kyle said. “We had a lot of support here, old faces and friends that (Andre Sr.) had relationships with and he was friends with over the years. There are people and families we grew up with that we see only once a year and it’s at this tournament. It’s great to see them here.” Proceeds from the tournament go to support the Kelowna Major Men’s Fastball Associaiton. Organizers hope to attract six to eight teams next year.

NEW ZEALAND JUNIORS TO VISIT… The New Zealand national junior men’s team will be in Kelowna early next month for a pair of exhibition games against the Kelowna Major Men’s Fastball Association allstar team. A doubleheader between the teams will be played Wednesday, July at King Stadium beginning at 6:30 p.m. The New Zealand nationals will be performing the historic Haka dance prior to the game.

Hunter Blucke down for a chance to play in their own version of the World Cup. Excel Soccer will be taking these players to the Republic of San Marino to compete in an international tournament called the San Marino Cup from July 6 to 12. Kelowna’s Hunter Blucke, who has been part of the Excel program in past years, is excited to test his skills against top players from around the world. “I’m looking forward to this trip to expose me to other skilled players from

other countries,” said Blucke, 13, a Grade 7 student at Aberdeen Hall in Kelowna. The team will spend six days in San Marino for the tournament and the rest of a two weeks touring and enjoying the food and culture of Italy. Players will also get the opportunity to train at the Italian National training centre and watch the World Cup final while in Europe. Excel Soccer was founded in 2001 by Tony Pensato, a former professional soccer player. “Over the years, Excel Soccer has provided opportunities for young Canadian players to travel to the top soccer countries in the world and experience the passion and culture that makes soccer such a great game,” said Pensato. “Playing against international teams and travelling through Italy is something the boys will cherish and talk about for the rest of their lives.”

Four athletes from the Okanagan Gymnastics Centre made it to the podium at the Western Canada Cup competition June 13 to 15 in Calgary. Two OGC athletes, Jaylin Otteson and Abby McDonald, qualified to represent Team B.C. at this event, while two other OGC athletes, Jordan Macdonald and Andrew Oliver, chose to travel independently and represent their home club. Coach Jamie Gardner also travelled with the team to this event. In the Synchronized Trampoline event, Jaylin Otteson and Jordan Macdonald came third in Provincial 3. Jaylin Otteson also took the title in the Provincial 3 Individual Trampoline and placed 18th in the Provincial 2 Double Mini Trampoline event. Abby McDonald won the Provincial 4 Double Mini Trampoline title, finished with a bronze medal in Provincial 4 Individual Trampoline and in Provincial 2 Tumbling, finishing third all around. A lot of trampoline gymnastics athletes do not compete in all three events. McDonald is one who does all of the events and is therefore a contender for the all-around

recognition. As part of Team B.C., Jaylin Otteson and Abby McDonald contributed to the team finals scores where B.C. finished third in Trampoline, Double Mini Trampoline and Tumbling. The team grand total is calculated by taking the top three scores of the four team members on each event for the Event Finals and after adding all of the event finals scores together, B.C. finished second

all around. Competing for Okanagan Gymnastics Centre, Jordan Macdonald finished sixth in Provincial 3 Individual Trampoline, fourth place in Provincial 2 Double Mini Trampoline and 21st place in Provincial 1 Tumbling. Andrew Oliver also competing for OGC finished fourth in Provincial 4 Trampoline and ninth in Provincial 4 Double Mini Trampoline.

Warriors win Kelowna Minor Basketball Legends tourney

The Kelowna Warriors capped an undefeated season in style, capturing the Kelowna Minor Basketball Association’s Legends Grade 8/9 boys spring title. The Warriors made it 16 consecutive wins with a 43-38 victory over Varsity Red in a spirited final. “I couldn’t be prouder of the boys” said Warriors coach coach Brian Wambacher. “It’s a real accomplishment to go through an entire season undefeated at any level of sports, especially given the quality of all the teams in the league. The Varsity Red gave us all we could handle in the final - they played very well.” In the final the Warriors led wire to wire. The RWarriors narrowly missed being eliminated in the quarter final, barely beating the Rams, before play-

▼ CURLING

Changes made to B.C. Scotties playdowns A new format will be implemented next season for the Scotties B.C. Women’s Curling Championship. The changes have been introduced in response to feedback from competitive women’s players who felt the competition’s round-robin format was too lengthy. The Curl B.C. board voted in favour of changing the competition from a 10-team round

robin format to an eightteam triple knockout competition with a Page playoff. The teams can qualify for the championship in the same way as last year, but there are fewer berths. One berth is allocated to the returning champion and two berths are allocated to the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) points winners (the two women’s teams with the highest ranking on the

CTRS list). There will continue to be two open events to decide the remaining berths. Starting in 2015, three teams will qualify at the first event and two teams will qualify at the second. “The common request province-wide is that athletes and teams want the length of the event to be reduced,” said Mike West, who chairs the High Performance and Competitions Committee.

During this time he established and managed the Kamloops Sea Cadet Corps. He was very proud of his “Troop”. Trevor managed several stores in various parts of B.C. and Alberta, and then he settled in Nelson for 25 years with his wife, Teri. He worked for Super Value, Cominco, operated his own farm and then became an owner/manager of the Lord Nelson Hotel.

Predeceased by her parents and brothers Frank and Clifford. Beth was born in Pathlow, SK and took her schooling in Saskatchewan.

and forever loved

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains - Kahlil Gibran Love always from children Janine, Jim and John, and husband Trevor

HAMILTON, BRIAN RICHARD

February 13, 1947 - June 5, 2014 It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was 67. Brian is sorely missed by his children; Dean Hamilton (Jaquie, Taylor), Terrie Hamilton-Wieler (Ken, Brandon, Selena, Donovan, Ethan), Tabatha Dumas (Jordan, Jessica, Christopher), Corin Hamilton (Jaydene, Alicia, Jacob) and the Flowers grandchildren (Shaela, Emily, Ayden, Machara). His two brothers; Gord Hamilton (Bonnie, Clint and Craig) Blair Hamilton (Marylin, Brent and Deanna) along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and church family. A very special thank you to Jazz Wetham and family, McKenney Creek Hospice staff in Maple Ridge BC, for caring for Brian in his final days. Sadly, he was predeceased by his son Robin. Brian enjoyed sharing his mechanic knowledge of repairing and rebuilding old vehicles; he was especially proud of the 1971 GTO Tempest Judge, golfing and fishing. He was recorded as having caught one of the biggest rainbow trout in Okanagan Lake, and the stuffed beauty is on display at the Peachland Marina. A Celebration of His Life will be held 11:00 A.M., Saturday June 21, 2014 at Hansons Arbor Westwood Funeral Chapel, 2541 Churchill Rd., West Kelowna BC.

High tech help for erasing bad habits in your swing STRAIGHT FROM DEHART

L

Maxine DeHart

ong-time local PGA professional Mike Soergel, formerly with Predator Ridge Golf Club, is the centre manager and certified personal coach at the new GolfTEC Kelowna, located at107-1851 Kirschner Rd. After major shoulder surgery and not playing golf for a few years now, I figured it was smart to take a few lessons. It’s so easy to forget. I had to stop and think which hand to put my golf glove on, let alone what club to use for what distance. Even my golf shoes did not fit. For me, it was really like starting over from scratch. So I went to see Mike and what a great idea that was. While we all wish there was a quick-fix to lasting game improvement, the harsh truth is that there is no magic bullet for lower scores or the perfect swing. Golf instruction is not one size fits all. GolfTEC utilizes advanced technology to accelerate the improvement process and relies on a comprehensive approach to instruction that focuses on all elements of your game. Mike certainly had a big job with me. They offer fact-based diagnosis, sequential lessons, advanced retention tools, video-based practice, precision-matched clubs practise, member-

ships, short game lessons, game tracking, web-lessons and putting analysis. It’s all indoors, so you can practise rain or shine as GolfTEC uses simple techniques to help you fix your swing. One thing for sure, I felt better going out for my first game after the lesson. Sattu Mahapatra is the owner of GolfTEC. Call 778-478-6866 or check website www. golftec.com.  Trish Balaberde, Christine Hawkins and Kristin Rosdal (Capital News Of Prime Interest columnists), all formerly of Verico Kelowna Home Mortgages, have joined Creative Mortgage. Also joining the new team is Julie Krause, formerly of J. Krause Mortgage Services. Creative Mortgage is now one of the largest independent mortgage broker firms in the valley. Shaun Pierce is the president of the company. Call 250-717-8949; website www.kelownamortgages.com.  Tom Stanbrook, owner/operator of Michaelbrook Ranch Golf Club and the Brook Bar and Grille, says all is well again at the course and clubhouse restaurant after a recent fire in the pro shop. A temporary trailer is on site to provide the pro shop services and the restaurant is fully operational. Well-known chef/proprietor Colin Rayner, former owner of Bonita’s Bistro in Summerland, has opened his new bistro, called blu SAFFRON at the Volcanic Hills Estate Winery, 2845 Boucherie Rd. in West Kelowna. This quaint bistro has 48 seats inside the restau-

When the bistro and the winery feature joint events, they can accommodate up to 200 people, with plenty of parking. Some of the menu items offered are small plates and sharing items (pulled pork poutine, spiced panko tuna, avocado prawn bruschetta); salads (spinach and arugula, roasted beet and orange); large plate items (prime rib burger, flatbreads, chicken pappardelle); and both wonderful desserts and daily specials. We tried the pulled pork poutine and spinach and arugula salad and both were excellent. Hours are Sunday to Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Thursday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8

p.m. Watch for extended hours during the summer in July and August. The bistro also will stay open for the winter months and for Christmas parties. Call 778-755-5550, ext. 108 or go online to www.blusaffronbistro.com. Bobby Gidda is the proprietor/ president of Volcanic Hills Estate Winery. Kelowna International Airport (YLW) celebrated its ambassador volunteer service award winners again this year. There are now 80 airport ambassadors and 10 junior ambassadors. Kudos to the following award winners: Abby Sones, Bernie Danis, Helen Rouse, Fred Fairhall, Hugh and Ruth Montgomery, Dorothy Montgomery, Olga Byrnes, Ian Rennie and Ken Dewerson (15 years); Harold Bey,

Mae Husk and Arnie Krezanski (10 years); David and Marilyn Redekop, Linda and Rueben Wahler, Roy Lashmar and Kayla Bazzana (five years). Congratulations also to the 2014 Ambassadors of the Year: Marlene Drake and Bill Reutlinger. Airport clerk, Carol Marquette, who is leaving YLW to work at City Hall, was also recognized for being a great help to all the ambassadors during her 13 years at the airport. Ken Dewerson is the YLW ambassador coordinator.    Jesse Bernhardt has joined the firm of Pushor Mitchell Lawyers LLP as an associate lawyer.

Barb Miller has published her second book, Think Outside the Box… of Chocolates. It’s a great name for a great book. The book does not contain any nut products, but is a product of being nutty. It is a collection of deliciously funny stories, can’t eat-just-one poems and lyrics, melt in your mouth devotionals and a selection of drama scripts to snack on. All were inspired from when life was nutty to those moments of biting into chocolate-covered nougats of wisdom. It’s a Christian humour book and an easy read. Her first book was a children’s book called Now, Can I Have a Dog. The book is available on Amazon.com.

from recession Karen Christiansen CONTRIBUTOR

Last year, our economy continued to suffer from the impact of the 2009 global recession. Our region had a relatively slow year in terms of economic activity, which led to poor labour market conditions and a loss of valuable human capital to nearby regions and Alberta. According to the BC Check-Up, Regional Edition, the Thompson-Okanagan experienced the largest loss of jobs since 2009, with a contraction of 7,500 jobs; more than three times the provincial average. Construction and tourism, two economic drivers for our region, both suffered extensive job losses in 2013. An additional 6,000 individuals also chose to opt out of the labour force, as our unemployment rate climbed to 7.1 per cent. These factors underlined our region’s weak economy, and many workers left to seek employment elsewhere in B.C. or Alberta. Development activity in our region also fell to its lowest level in six years, as the total value of major capital projects dropped to $24.5 billion in 2013. This was 27.9 per cent below the region’s pre-recession peak. However, the total value of proposed projects by the end of last year saw an increase of 8.3 per cent, to $7 billion. This is primarily the result of the $1 billion multi-year mixed-use development project in Peachland. Comparatively, the value of projects under construction in December 2013 totalled $16.3 billion, one per cent less than the previous year. Most were residential, commercial, and resort projects, including several large multi-year projects that have been in progress for several years—the $2.1 billion Glenmore Highlands Development and $1 billion Tower Ranch Golf resort in Kelowna; $1.5 billion Lakestone Resort in Lake Country; $1 billion Revelstoke Mountain Ski resort; $1 billion Ponderosa development in Peachland, and $1 billion Rise Resort development in Vernon. The go ahead of a few of these projects will en-

courage economic activity and buoy some of our primary industries. Our region can also capitalize on the increasing venture capital (VC) investments that are coming to B.C. Last year, VC investments in our province increased from $198 million in 2012 to reach $478 million. Although much of the VC investments went to southwest B.C., our region also benefited as it has the second-largest cluster of digital media companies in the province, including Disney Interactive’s Club Penguin that generates over $40 million in annual sales. Our economic prospects in 2014 remain uncertain at this point. The expansion of the forestry industry resulting from higher demand from the recovering U.S. and growing Asian markets should improve our economy. A lower Canadian dollar will potentially improve the export market, attract tourists, and induce some second-home investors back to the region. There was also a moderate surge in property sales attributed to low interest rates and price reductions that increased housing starts in the latter part of the year. However, housing inventories remain high, which will continue to dampen development and construction activity. Karen Christiansen, CPA, FCA is a partner at MNP LLP in Kelowna. www.bccheckup.com

Little known facts about the limitations of RRSPs

R

RSPs were initially developed to create a personal tax deduction in the current year and defer taxes on the amount until a future year when it is assumed that the taxable income will be lower. For example if a person made $105,000 which attracts 40.70% combined federal and provincial tax (at 2013 rates), that person could take out enough of an RRSP to reduce their combined federal and provincial taxable income to the next lowest tax bracket of 38.29%, saving themselves 2.41% or more of tax in the current year. They would need to take out at least $5,000 in an RRSP and would have saved about $120.50 in taxes. Then in a later year, if the $5,000 was withdrawn and the total taxable income was less than $36,000, the tax on that $5,000 would be at y 20.06% instead of the -40.70% (providing that the personal tax rates reomain the same) which is -an overall tax savings of )23.05%. - In order to stop people C

from contributing exorbitant amounts to RRSPs to save taxes, an annual deduction limit was introduced. This limit is a complicated calculation but for the most part works out to be about 18% of your qualifying annual earned income. It’s cumulative in that if you didn’t contribute to an RRSP in one year, you can still use that contribution room in a following year. On your notice of assessment, usually at the bottom of page 2, is where you can find the details of your RRSP deduction limit. It is important to note that line (A) is the maximum that you can deduct. Sometimes there is an amount in line (B) which means that you have over-contributed to your RRSP but have not deducted the amount from your taxes because it was over the deduction limit, or an adjustment might have been done to your tax return resulting in reducing the deduction limit. Many people misread this line and think that they can contribute this amount to their RRSP and

end up with a growing over-contribution amount until someone realizes what has happened. When you turn 71 you will be required to roll your RRSP into a RRIF and at this time you stop collecting deduction room and your deduction limit may even be zero. Now if you have overcontributed you have about two years to be able to take advantage of the over-contribution on your tax return, otherwise you may loose the benefit of that tax deduction. If you didn’t get the

tax deduction when you made the original contribution, then when you withdraw out of your RRIF you are taxed on that, so you end up paying double the tax. Not only that, but if you have over-contributed by more than $2,000 you could be subject to interest on the amount you over-contributed. The tax on over-contributions is one per cent per month on the amount that exceeds the $2,000. There is an exception to this if the over-contribution occurred between

1991 and Feb. 26, 1995, when the excess limit was $8,000. As long as you never contributed after that, then the old rules kick in and you may not need to pay the interest. So you need to take a look at your Notice of Assessment and find the Deduction Limit Statement and check to make sure that there is no balance in line (B). If there is, and you have contribution room you can contact the institution that manages your RRSP and take that money out. They will auto-

matically deduct a minimum of 10% tax from the amount and issue you a T4RSP slip which will then be offset by this overcontribution amount on your tax return and you end up not paying any tax on that withdrawal. Another alternative is to have the institution fill out form T3012A which will allow you to withdraw the amount without having the tax withheld at source. Alternatively, after the two-year window and if your RRSP has been rolled into a RRIF, you

Gabriele Banka can fill out form T746 Calculating Your Deduction for Refund of Unused RRSP Contributions to have any excess contributions taken as a deduction up to the limit shown in Box 20 or 22 of the T4RSP slip or box 24 of the T4RIF slip. Make sure that you bring this to your accountant’s attention when you are filing your next tax return.

With Monday’s announcement of a signed deal to see cherries shipped directly into China, growers are breathing a sigh of relief. Some 400 Canadian cherry growers—most in B.C.—already produce excess product. “Often the North American market will be glutted. Everything is ripening at once and, if there’s an over supply, the price can go in the tank,” said David Geen of Coral Beach Farms. “If you’ve got the option to export, you can roll with the punches a bit more and market your fruit where you have the best opportunity, as opposed to where have to.” Canadian cherries are high quality, with a following in the United Kingdom and South East Asia, but China is the golden egg, according to Geen, whose 500 acres between Vernon and Kelowna’s Rutland Bench make him one of the top growers. “The Chinese have a palate for the product. They value the high sugar and the colour—the deep red is seen as very lucky, and it’s the colour of your blood, so it’s presumed to be very good for your health,” he explained. Three-quarters of

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

CHERRY farmer Sukhpal Bal is managing a construction site this summer to ensure he has the regulation packing and shipping facility required by the Chinese government at his farm in Rutland. He will assemble a machine which takes 10 to 15 pictures of the cherries to monitor the weight and colour for optimal quality before sending them down a conveyor to be washed, boxed and loaded on a truck without ever hitting the outside air. Western Cherry Fruit Fly really is not a problem for B.C. growers says Bal, a fourth-generation Okanagan farmer working a 100-acre plot off Highway 33. Farmers use a range of chemicals with strict protocols on when to spray, how much to spray and how long after the fruit has been treated to harvest. Nevertheless, the pilot program established to test their claims saw two Chinese inspectors spend the entire summer in Canada last year—costs largely paid by industry—clearing every single shipment bound for China. This year, the inspectors will only be on the ground for a two week audit, ensuring the growers registered to ship are follow-

ing the established requirements, like stationing fruit fly traps at mandatory minimums through each orchard, and setting up fullysealed shops so the fruit can come directly off the production line in a cold environment and onto a truck, without potential contamination from the open air. Cherries have a onemonth shelf life, so skipping the two weeks of cold storage other countries have been required to wait out is a big advantage. “From what I’m hearing, the rest of the world is quite jealous we’re getting in without the requirement, which is to keep the cherries just above zero before they’re shipped,” said Bal. With apple prices falling, orchardists have been

planting cherries for some years in hopes of finding a crop with livable returns, and Bal sees this deal as a landmark moment likely to alter the landscape of his world. “Maybe 20 years down the road, we’ll look back on the signing of this agreement as the moment that reshaped the industry, and perhaps even the Okanagan,” he said. “My goal is to raise the profile of cherries. I love the wine industry and all that, but they kind of take a lot of the spotlight. We’re hoping to show the public that we grow some excellent cherries here that are sought after around the world.” jsmith @kelownacapnews.com

Chile’s cherry production already goes directly to the country and the United States has long shipped to its ports. Canada’s niche is in the late hour of our fruit’s season, August and September as opposed to June and July, and the quality of our science. In addition to producing many of the world’s top varietals at Pacific AgriFood Research Centre in Summerland, the sector has developed a brown-sugar test to prove the crops are pest free. Added to our spray protocols, it was enough to secure a twoyear pilot project to see if Canadian cherries couldn’t skip the usual two week cold storage quarantine demands. “Their quarantine pest is the Western Cherry Fruit Fly,” explained Sukhpal Bal, president of the B.C. Cherry Association. “That’s really what this deal is all about. In our negotiations…they wanted cold storage, but we’ve found a systems approach of doing the brown sugar test, as well as our integrated pest management.” Growers essentially mash up a bunch of cherries in a bucket then pour a brown sugar mixture over the fruit and wait 10 minutes; if there are any larva in the sample, they will float to the top.

They are extremely susceptible to weather and bird damage. • Growers have done everything, including hiring helicopters and mounting blowers to

the back of tractors, to dry the fruit when storms hit in the critical last few weeks of development. • The level of rigour the Chinese government asked for is several steps beyond the demands farmers met to secure deals with Taiwan and Europe.

Briefs: Westside Road makes ‘worst roads’ list yet again  Although Westside Road didn’t take the infamous title of British Columbia Automobile Association’s worst road in the province this year, it has made the top 10 list multiple times.

Various sections of Westside Road earned the second, fourth and ninth most votes in BCAA’s annual survey, which aims to identify the roads most in need of improvement throughout B.C.

Part of Westside Road, about 40 km north of West Kelowna near Attenborough Road, earned the second most votes; a section 17 km north of West Kelowna came in fourth; ninth place was given

to an area of the road 35 km west of Vernon, near Chief Saddleman Road. Potholes/crumbling pavement was voted the top concern for each of those sections of road. Silver Star Road in Vernon was named BCAA’s 2014 worst road. “Votes tripled this year. That says to me that British Columbians want a way to express their road frustrations and appreciate the opportunity to have their say,” said Ken Cousin, BCAA’s associate vice-president of Road

Assist. “(The survey) is about safety and helping people to raise awareness of problem roads.” This year’s survey identified 1,277 separate stretches of road across the province.
