Changes coming to Kettle system


As of April 1 the Kettle River will become a catchand-release only system as biologists move to protect its fish stocks. As the changes go into effect, there is a major habitat restoration project underway, thanks to an endangered species of fish you may never have heard of before. Story page A3.

OKIB claim to corridor an issue for the feds

Kevin Parnell

The head of the yes campaign heading into Lake Country’s referendum on purchasing the CN Rail corridor says he sympathizes with the Okanagan Indian Band, but the band’s claim to a large portion of the corridor could muddy the referendum waters . Duane Thomson, a retired history professor and long-time Lake Country resident, says the

Okanagan Indian Band (OKIB) have been great neighbours to Lake Country and adds the problems are between the OKIB and the federal government and should have no bearing on Lake Country’s attempt to purchase the corridor, along with Kelowna and the North Okanagan Regional District. “The Indian community in B.C. is extremely frustrated with the federal government and they seem to have no way of communicating with them or getting them to listen,” said Thomson,

who is running a campaign promoting the yes side of Lake Country’s April 25 referendum. “I don’t think it will have much of an impact on the referendum issue. It does muddy the water for sure. I have a lot of sympathy with our Indian neighbours who are good neighbours in so many respects. But they have a really serious issue with the federal government.” On Tuesday of this week the Okanagan Indian

Fisheries biologist Darryl Arsenault of Golder Associates points to a map of the Kettle River system where a $116,000 project to enhance fish habitat is currently underway.

Reprieve for fish in Kettle River system Kevin Parnell

As new fishing regulations get set to go into effect on the Kettle and West Kettle Rivers east of Kelowna, making the two rivers catch-andrelease only, a stream rehabilitation project is underway on the Kettle River system as groups, communities and anglers come together to try and revive the fishing in the Kettle River watershed. As of April 1, the West Kettle and Kettle River will become 100 per cent catch-andrelease fisheries, meaning the age-old practice of (legally) catching and

killing fish in the Kettle system will come to an end, as fisheries biologists move to protect a fishery that has been in decline for at least the past 10 years. The rivers will also both be closed to fishing for a month in the hottest stretch of summer—from July 25 to Aug. 25 in the Kettle and Aug. 1 to Aug. 31 in the West Kettle—a time when low river flows and high temperatures by themselves can kill fish, making trout very susceptible to threats from predators and anglers. “This is the only river-style fishery in the region and is utilized

by avid fly-fishermen,” said Tara White, senior fisheries biologist in the Thompson-Okanagan Region. “The river is managed as a quality fishery. These changes will not only help conserve and protect wild stocks, they will help maintain and enhance angler opportunity on this unique river-style fishery. Hopefully it will also help address compliance concerns associated with it, which has been identified as a significant issue on the system, by simplifying the regulations.” Previously only about 44 kilometres of the 260 km river was catch-

Hopefully they stabilize the fishery for the future and hopefully they can find a way to police and monitor the river.” ••• Raise your hand if you’ve heard of a fish known as the speckled dace. OK, good. Now stand-up if you have ever caught one. And that my friends would be quite the fish tale. You see, the speckled dace is a member of the minnow family and only grows to a maximum four or five inches in its short four-year lifespan. Believed to be one of the first fish to recolonize B.C. waters after the Ice Age, there are

and-release, meaning anglers had to use signs or markers to figure out where those locations were. Now both the Kettle and the West Kettle are entirely catchand-release only, a move angling groups had been calling for over the past several years. “I applaud the ministry for changing the regulations,” said Travis Lowe of the Kelowna-based Trout Unlimited chapter. “The truth is, killing fish in the Kettle was never an environmentally sustainable model. The fishery is on the brink of collapse and it needed these regulation changes.

healthy populations of the speckled dace in the Western United States but here in Canada it lives in only one river system. That system: The Kettle River and its two main tributaries of the West Kettle and the Granby River. Close to the CanadaUS border, the Kettle River flows over Cascade Falls and into the US. Due to the falls, the Canadian speckled dace is cut-off from its relatives south of the border and has even developed different characteristics from its American family. The specked dace is abundant in the US but in Canada it is a much

different story. It is an endangered species, listed as an aquatic species at risk by the federal government and protected under the government’s Species At Risk Act (SARA). “The dace are really cool because they are able to live in amongst the rocks,” said fisheries biologist Darryl Arsenault from his Kelowna office. “They are very stocky and strong and can get in amongst the rocks. They are an important part of the food chain. It’s all inter-connected. They feed on algae and small

close-up __________________________________________________________________ MANAGING FLOWING WATERS

Reducing sediment helps rare species survive in Kettle CLOSE-UP FROM A3 invertebrates. They live on those and are able to transfer the energy up to trout and birds that feed on them. One of the biggest pressures on them is sediment coming down the river that takes nice clean rocks and fills it with sand so they can’t access food or hiding places.” Those rocky hiding places and the natural habitat of the speckled dace is the same habitat where rainbow trout thrive. And because dace are listed on the SARA, there is federal money available to try and help them. That, in turn, will help trout, the Interior of B.C.s top angling target. “Anytime you reduce sediment moving down the system you also help rainbow trout because rainbow trout spawn in the same type of gravel these guys live in,” said Arsenault. “If you protect the speckled dace you also help the rainbow trout.” According to Arsenault, past and current logging practices in the area have resulted in increased sediment heading down the river and other practices like agriculture and bridgebuilding have long allowed too much sediment to enter the Kettle system. The logging wouldn’t even have to be in close proximity to the Kettle to have an impact. Sediment is fed into the Kettle system from feeder

streams, many of which come through cutblocks or other areas that have been logged and dump sediment into the main river channel. Over time the sediment impacts the river by eroding the banks and widening it, and lowering the water level as the sediment is deposited on the river bed. Put together with low flows in the summer, intense agriculture practices that remove water from the river and a history of over-fishing and the Kettle system is hurting. To fight the sediment problem, Arsenault, is working on a project to improve habitat for the speckled dace, a $116,000 project with funding through the federal government, in-kind donations as well as a $20,000 boost from Trout Unlimited (TU) in Kelowna. Travis Lowe with TU says his group has been sitting on the money for years, looking for an appropriate conservation project to put it towards. “I think this project dovetails nicely with what our goals at Trout Unlimited are in terms of conserving Canada’s freshwater and coldwater resources,” said Lowe. “It really fits in with what we are trying to do on the Kettle River especially with the rainbow trout fishery because the speckled dace needs the exact same thing as rainbow trout need which is

clean water free from sediment. We have had that money sitting in the bank and have been looking to try to find a project where we can put the money on the ground. It feels really good to see that happening right now.” The project, underway this month, will see willow, cottonwood, dogwood and other plants re-planted on certain stretches of the Kettle, West Kettle and Granby rivers. As the new plants grow they will create a new forest and new stability on the banks, catching the sediment as it flows downstream and also stopping the erosion of the banks. It is expected to eventually create deeper pools in the river, improving fish habitat. “This is the first crack at creating some enhanced habitat,” said Arsenault. “I’m not going to say it’s going to fix the problem. This is really the first effort by people in the watershed to get together and put their effort together to restore habitat. It’s a small effort. It needs to keep going. This is just a first step in a long process of trying to do some restoration and education for people.” ••• Over-fishing, illegal fishing, water licenses, agriculture use, logging. There are many things affecting the Kettle River. But as new fishing

regulations go into effect April 1, there are more and more people working to save the Kettle and revive a unique fishery that is a shadow of what it once was. Last November the Regional District of Kootenay-Boundary endorsed a Kettle River Watershed Management Plan, setting up a plan to work towards four main strategies: 1. Increase community understanding, support and capacity for stewardship of the watershed 2. Improve the quality, reliability and security of water supplies through sustainable management of water resources 3. Improve watershed health and function, and 4. Maintain or enhance recreational, cultural and amenity values. “Now that there is a management plan, that is really important,” said Arsenault. “They are looking at taking that management plan to the next level as a way to keep getting funding and keep things moving forward.” Along with Arsenault’s speckled dace protection project, other work is underway and being guided by the strategies laid out in the plan. The Christina Lake Stewardship Society is planning a lakeshore restoration demonstration and native plant nursery, and funding proposals have been submitted for

bank stabilization and fish habitat improvement on the Kettle River near Grand Forks. A plan is being developed to bring together all of the water suppliers in a water conservation strategy and education program, and a ‘learning garden’ at the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre will demonstrate water conservation, soil improvement, and an ecological landscape design system called permaculture. And while those projects may seem like they are a ways away from Kelowna, the importance of the Kettle River stretches far from the land it crosses. “There is a strong passion and a strong interest for that watershed,” said fisheries biologist Tara White of the Kettle. “There is also a strong sense of ownership amongst the locals which goes a long way to help protect and maintain fish habitat. It’s those kinds of joint efforts,” she said, “where you have stakeholder engagement and community interest that at the end of the day makes a big difference.” For more on the Kettle River go to

make no apologies when it comes to protecting the legal interests of our membership,” said OKIB Chief Byron Louis. “The rail line runs through the Commonage Reserve and the OKIB has never lawfully surrendered the land.” The Commonage claim by OKIB is different than another portion of the rail corridor that passes through an OKIB reserve near Duck Lake. That stretch of line is not included in the negotiated deal between CN and the municipalities while the band claims the entire line along Kalamalka Lake runs through its territory. As far as the interjurisdictional team goes, the group issued a press release Wednesday stating they had invited OKIB to the table at the beginning of the process and the band declined, adding staff and elected officials have met with OKIB council members on numerous occasions to “discuss this and other projects that could be mutually beneficial to all citizens.” “The partners remain unanimous in our commitment to complete this once-in-a-lifetime acquisition,” said Doug Gilchrist, of the City of Kelowna on behalf of the regional partners. “We are proceeding on what has always been our understanding – that CN owns the land outright and therefore has the legal right to sell the land.” The parties have a tentative $22 million deal with CN to purchase the rail corridor and are in the process of removing subjects to the deal. Together the three jurisdictions are expected to raise $15 million of that total while the group has said the extra $7 million is expected to come from either the provincial or federal governments. In the meantime, the OKIB says it has sent letters to Aboriginal Affairs, Northern Development Canada and Transport Canada and has not received any response. A message left with Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan’s office, was not returned by press deadline.

news _________________________________________________ OKANAGAN CIDER

The Okanagan has something new to toast to, and with. BC Tree Fruits is getting ready to launch its long anticipated cider, Broken Ladder. “Our first lot of 100 cases have left our packinghouse facility, and people will start seeing it in BC Liquor stores early next week,” said Chris Pollock, BC Tree Fruits marketing manager. “It’s been a lot of planning and work, and it’s something that our group and our growers are behind and we really want it to succeed.” Six BC Tree Fruit apple varieties, hand-picked from Okanagan Valley orchards, are used for the secret blend. They’re pressed within the cooperative’s own cidery adjacent to the old packinghouse building on Clement Avenue and, without the addition of sugar or flavouring, turned into Broken Ladder. “It proudly lists only one ingredient on the can—BC apples,” reads some of the marketing material for the drink. “Proud” is a word that comes up a lot when it comes to this product. It likely reflects the long journey fruit growers have taken on the way to bringing the product to the marketplace. As is the case with farming everywhere, there are good and bad

Mission gets new van A Kelowna car dealer has come to the rescue of the Gospel Mission after the van it used for outreach work was destroyed by fire.

The fire, accidentally ignited by street people who camped out behind the mission earlier this month, also damaged the mission’s dental clinic located above where they were sleeping.

you’ll see an old wood ladder, with broken rungs that had been in circulation for far too long by the time it was retired. “They’re not in use anymore, but they’ll be hanging in their barn or workshop somewhere,” he said. “The name is part of the character of the industry and it’s a tribute to those growers.” Beyond that, it’s pretty tasty, said Pollock. “We wanted to look at making a cider the same way you would a wine,” said BC Tree Fruits Cider Company project manager, Mike Daley. “We envisioned a cider true to its natural form. The taste is as real as it gets. Cider is the perfect answer for apples not destined for the fresh market...We have all of the varieties and the best fruit to pick from. It makes sense to add value for these families and consumers by creating a cider, true to their roots.”

times. During the worst of it locally, there was persistent talk of the cooperative one day putting a strong value-added product on the market, giving farmers a new stream of revenue. This, it would appear, is the sweet culmination of years of those conversations, not to mention the hard work Okanagan farmers have put in to their orchards over generations. “We’ve said this many times—we’re in it for the long haul,” said Pollock. “At the end of the day, our mandate is to maximize returns to our grower base. This product and industry are allowing us to do that. We did the research on it, and we made sure it was something that would make sense to our grower group.“ It’s with that group of 500 families who make up the grower group, the name Broken Ladder came to the fore. “The name is a tribute to our growers who have been growing premium quality fruit in the Okanagan for 80 years,” said Pollock. “We wanted the cider to have character and represent our growers and the work they do.” Pollock explained that if you walk onto any local orchard, chances are

Group urges GM apple boycott To the editor: Health Action Network Society (HANS) is speaking out in response to the Canadian government’s approval of the first genetically modified (GM) apple.

LETTER OF THE WEEK We’re very disappointed Health Canada has acted against consumer’s best interests and consumer’s desires. Last month, the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved the GM apple for growth and sale in the U.S., and almost exactly a month later Canada has followed suit. Within days of receiving approval in the U.S., Okanagan Specialty Fruit, the creator of the Arctic Apple, entered into an agreement to be purchased by Intrexon a U.S. biotechnology firm. This will add further economic pressure to bring this apple to market as soon as possible. Concerns with health safety and freedom of informed choice are a couple of reasons we continue to oppose introducing the GM apple into Canada. HANS will step up its campaigning to introduce mandatory GM labeling, as the

governments have in Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe. Other consumer groups to reject the GM apple include the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network and Society for a GE Free BC. The BC Fruit Growers’ Association (comprised of both organic and conventional growers) officially opposes the GM apple. In 2012, a poll they commissioned found that 69 percent of polled Canadians didn’t want the GM apple. This apple doesn’t brown for 15 to 18 days after being cut. New genetic material, including a plant virus and two different bacteria, is inserted to ‘silence’ the browning gene. The GM apple will look fresh, even when it’s not. More and more stores and B.C. distributors have responded to our appeal not to purchase or sell the GM apples. I am confident this number will grow as the public expresses its disapproval over this unfortunate food product. Michael Volker, director of operations, Health Action Network Society Editor’s note: On its webpage HANS describes itself as “a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to promoting natural health and wellness.”

Control the remote, control the house Glenn Mitchell contributor

One of my many faults around the house, besides the already well documented not-so-handy situation, is that I pretty much have to have control of the TV remote. Now it’s kind of frustrating at one level because I kind of pride myself on being a fairly easy going guy, and I believe (although I know it’s always dangerous to attribute characteristics to oneself because we’re all unbiased on that topic) most people would call me a fairly relaxed individual, relatively speaking. But that’s my public persona and in the comfort of one’s own home the complexities of one’s personality are more likely to come out and be inflicted on our poor families. But at least I’m aware of it at some level, and I know it’s a male thing about being in control, I guess, and it’s not like I haven’t tried to let my wife hold the remote. I’m working on it. However, certain issues arise when she’s in control of our viewing habits, not that there aren’t when I’m at the helm, but I like to think I work the remote a little better to keep everyone happy, sort of. For example she’ll be watching one of her shows,

like Nashville or one of those fixer-upper shows that may or not be indirectly aimed at one of my other inadequacies, and I’ll say “let me see the remote.” “Why?” she’ll fire back. “We’re not watching hockey.” “No, no,” I’ll say. “If you press this button twice you can watch it in High Definition.” “Whatever,” she’ll say. But I grab it and do it anyway, likely both to prove some stupid point and justify the extra coinage I’m paying every month to get some channels in HD. Obviously I’m cheap enough to want to make sure we’re utilizing a service we’re already paying for. I then give it back in a gesture of goodwill to show I don’t need to be in control all the time. “You see, that hunky, handy guy is even better looking in HD,” I say as I start to walk away to give her her space back. “Right,” she responds. “Actually, there is a Canucks game on, and seeing how it’s a commercial can we just see what the score is for a sec, honey?” I’m pushing it now but she seems OK with it ( as she asks me what channel it’s on, without giving back the remote.

“Um, it’s either 3 or 6 or 9 or one of those five channels in the 200’s’s kind of complicated these days. Do you want me to do it dear?” She hits the nine button. “There it is,” she exclaims, pleased with her successful efforts, and likely hoping to get rid of me in a hurry. “OK, but if you hit it again we can watch it in HD and we can get rid of that bar across the bottom that keeps me from seeing the puck....” “I thought you just need to see the score and if I do that I can’t go right back to my channel, besides the commercial is probably over already....” She was right and she could’ve added that the Canucks are losing badly anyway but she might not have noticed as she deftly hit the return button to her show, now in HD. “Hey, you’re getting better with that thing,” I offer and sit down to see which house in Italy the American couple is going to purchase. “You’re going to watch this with me?” she asks. OK, it’s official, she didn’t notice the score. “Yup, and you can keep the remote too,” I offer. I told you I’m working on it.

Constituent questions MP FortisBC on Anti-Terrorism Bill C-51 spokesman says label change a clarification Open letter to Dan Albas, Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla: Re: Anti-Terrorism Act, Bill C-51 I’ve read your February, 2015 communication, Taking a Look at Bill C-51 [ taking-a-look-at-bill-c-51] that appears on your website and in four different newspapers within your riding. I assume the purpose of the document was to inform your constituents that a new law has been drafted by your party and that it is of such importance it could violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (the Constitution) as well as alter other laws such as the Criminal Code, Privacy Act, Immigration and Refugee Act and the Canadian Security and Intelligence Act. In addition to reviewing your document, I’ve walked through key components of Bill C-51, watched standing committee sessions, examined expert opinions, read through parts of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and filtered it through my own values. As the bill currently stands, I believe it to be unbalanced, arrived at arbitrarily and therefore unready. The rationale for my position is embedded in the questions and comments within a six-page reply sent to you directly. The purpose of this response through the newspaper to your document is to hopefully engage constituents in your riding who may have an opinion on such an important topic. After all, you need to be aligned with your customers. The following reiterates some key issues from my six-page letter: • According to legal experts, (with whom I agree) the new bill’s vaguely defined speech laws will likely violate freedom of expression values in the Charter • Expanding broadly defined CSIS powers that transform the organization from intelligence gathering and analysis to include law enforcement are extremely risky according to Justice David McDonald’s 1981 Commission report • Limited oversight for expanded CSIS activities. CSIS has over 2,400 employees with a $500 million annual budget, while the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC) which is to manage oversight has approximately 15 staff with a $3 million annual budget • Preventative arrest powers for CSIS will allow a person to be arrested/detained without being prosecuted or convicted. They are charged based on what they might or will do some time in the future • CSIS will have an expanded mandate to “disrupt threats to national security” there is no actual definition of disruption, rather the bill says the actions will be reasonable and proportional. In summary, the bill was held up as a critical piece of legislation that was vital to national security. If this is true why is there such controversy associated with it? Why are there so many objections, cautions and criticisms from a large cross section of people including some very qualified professionals (e.g. professors of law, political science, public policy, practicing lawyers etc.)? Why can a layman, such as myself and others walk through this bill and relate to what these critics say and see? I believe your party rushed through this process and as a result it was not well thought through. Your party missed opportunities to capture skill, ideas and knowledge from a variety of impressive sources who would have added value to this

bill. You’re now being challenged on the bill’s credibility as you were throughout the Fair Elections Act debacle last year, for which you are now taking a similar truculent posture as you did then. As much as you might disagree, this is not about your party. This is about “the work,” the demonstrated ability to deliver the most principled, objective product for your customers. Given you voted for this bill, and considering the above, please explain why you feel Bill C-51 is in the best interests of your constituents. Keith Garries


Is a ‘fair and just’ price for electricity too much to ask? To the editor: Why is it when I see a Fortis sign or a Fortis label, let’s just say I am not enamoured. Is it because they have this two-tier charge system that is a joke, or is it because they say that, with these new smart meters we will, “experience RF exposure from meters far below the limit of safety....” Exposure is exposure, and we don’t want any exposure, thank you very much. Has Fortis added all the other exposures in our homes we have with cell phones, computers, etc., to theirs? Are they safe when we add them all up? What straw broke the camel’s back? These safety limits are very funny too. For example in our food there is a safety limit on rat droppings, oh yum. Let me understand, Fortis, when we get these smart meters we will get a great big discount because Fortis will fire all those meter men and save? Oh no, we have to pay more if we don’t want to be zapped by RFs. Why did Fortis go to court for these smart meters if they are so good? To be fair and just, Fortis should scrap the two-tier charging, have only one price, and make it fair for everybody. Why, for example, families with children should be punished. To be fair and just, Fortis should not make a fuss about our [old analog] meters or charge us extra, they served us well so far. Why is it that when Fortis makes changes it costs us more? We are all for Fortis being a profitable company— business is business otherwise why bother. But you can milk a cow only so much. For January and February our Fortis electric bill was $660. Two people, 2,400 sqfoot home with all the energy saving stuff, and we were away for three weeks—gouge. Fortis is an important part of our daily life in our community and should act like a good neighbour. Vera Diduch, Kelowna

To the editor: A letter published in the Kelowna Capital News March 20 [FortisBC Billing Manipulative] raised questions about the charges that appear on customers’ FortisBC gas bills. We would like to take this opportunity to further explain recent terminology changes to customers’ bills. The basic charge and charges for gas used will stay the same on customers’ bills. As of January 1, 2015, FortisBC changed what used to be called “Midstream Charge” to “Storage and Transport.” This new wording better reflects what customers are actually paying for, which covers the costs associated with storing and transporting the natural gas to and from our delivery system. This is not a new charge, nor does it mean you are paying more than you did before. Your Commodity Charges include the Storage and Transport Charge and the Cost of Gas Charge and varies directly with consumption and includes the cost of gas, administrative and gas management costs. We adjust these charges four times per year, and on April 1, commodity rates will decrease to the lowest they’ve been in a decade. Delivery items on your bill include your Delivery Charge, which varies with consumption and includes the costs to deliver the gas to your home and the Basic Charge, which ensures you have access to gas when you need it—24 hours a day. The Basic Charge does not vary with consumption and covers some of the fixed costs of delivering gas to your home, including monitoring and maintaining the pipeline system to ensure its safety and integrity. For more information on bills and rates, visit If you are concerned about your bill or are looking for ways to save energy, call us at 1-888-224-2710. Mark Warren, P. Eng., director, customer service, technology and systems, FortisBC

They came, they saw, they breastfed. Area residents dissatisfied with the way West Kelowna city council dealt with a March 10 request to implement Interior Health’s Baby Friendly Initiative, popped the latches on their nursing tops and held a feed-in as Tuesday’s council meeting got underway. There were a couple dozen women in attendance—although fewer than that squeezed into chambers—hoping their presence would convince council to adopt the policy that seemingly amounts to putting up stickers around municipal buildings and identifying nursing-friendly locations. Lisa Ford, of the Kelowna Breastfeeding Café, was one of the forces behind the effort. She told reporters she wanted the feed-in to be a public awareness and education event reflecting what the delegation initially asked for. Although the issue

was deferred at that initial meeting, she said the comments made during that meeting suggested council would have rejected the policy altogether had the public backlash not been so fierce. To that end, Ford said council’s reaction “may have done (them) a favour.” Education around the topic is still needed as only 30 per cent of Okanagan mothers are still breastfeeding at the six-month mark. The recommendation from the World Health Organization is two years. Feeding beyond that age was something former Kelowna councillor Angela Nagy (nee Reid) believes in, strongly. “I think there’s a lot of misunderstanding around breastfeeding. A very small percentage of women breastfeed beyond six weeks to three months, and the initiative is not only supporting breastfeeding, it’s also encouraging and advocating for women and helping mothers to

Deputy Bank of Canada governor warns about dangers of inflation Angie Brown contributor

Bank of Canada deputy governor Timothy Lane spoke to more than 90 people in Kelowna this week about the core responsibilities of the bank and the economic outlook for 2015. Lane, speaking at a Kelowna Chamber of Commerce lunch, addressed the bank’s role in monetary policy, financial systems, currency and funds management.

Timothy Lane

“Our basic contribution is to try and safeguard confidence in the value of money in the Canadian economy, and keeping the rate of inflation low, predictable and stable,”

he said. The bank does this within a framework that is agreed with the Government of Canada, which is renewed every five years. The agreement is established at a target of two per cent for rate of inflation. “We don’t like inflation. We have a responsibility to keep inflation from being significantly higher than that and also to keep it from being significantly lower.” Lane explained there


are several benefits to maintaining a stable, low, and predictable rate of inflation. “It gives Canadians a greater certainty about the purchasing power of money and implies that nominal interest rates can be lower.” He also said growth and inflation rates that are consistent with the bank’s target foster a Canadian economy that runs close to its economic potential. Producing bank notes is the bank’s most visible

role to Canadians. “Our responsibility there is to supply bank notes that Canadians can use with confidence, and that has a lot to do with security and combating counterfeiting,” Lane said. The bank’s new series of polymer notes are cheaper, safer, and greener than the previous round. The notes also have new security features. Lane said counterfeiting is currently at a far lower level than it has been in the past.


“There was a lot of concern about counterfeiting a few years ago, particularly in British Columbia. But there’s been an effort working with law enforcement and educating Canadians to try and combat counterfeiting,” he said. He said there is almost no reported counterfeiting of the current polymer series, but there is still some counterfeiting of the older bank notes that are still circulating.” When it comes to the

global economy, Lane said growth rates are generally lower than they were before the global financial crisis of 2008 and 2009. “We’ve seen a slow down in some of the emerging market, and as a result global economy has been on a track that’s lower than many people expected.” He does, however, see growth picking up. “We still see relatively large contribution coming to global growth through the emerging world market.”

50 wins trivial without extended WHL playoff run Warren Henderson

For two years we talked about how great we were with the 50 wins. It doesn’t mean much when you go out in the third round. We’ve gotta play longer and we have to be a team that’s considered a championship team that can win..” Bruce Hamilton

A combined 109 regular season wins over the previous two years ultimately didn’t translate into satisfying playoff results for the Kelowna Rockets. And as much as a third straight 50-plus victory campaign merits acknowledgement, the Rockets’ president and GM said it will mean little if the Western Hockey League team doesn’t achieve a higher degree of post-season prosperity in 2015. In acquiring the likes of Leon Draisaitl and Josh Morrissey midseason, Bruce Hamilton and Co. left little doubt about the Rockets’ intentions and expectations this spring. “Talk is cheap, actions speak a lot louder,” said Hamilton, whose Rockets went 53-13-5-1 this season to finish atop the Western Conference. “For two years we talked about how great we were with the 50 wins. It doesn’t mean much when you go out in the third round. We’ve gotta play longer and we have to be a team that’s considered a championship team that can win. “That’s why we made the moves we did, that’s what we’re here for,” he added. “Now we have to go out and make it happen.” The Rockets will kick off their highlyanticipated playoff run on Friday night at Prospera Place against the Tri-City Americans. Game 2 in the best-of-seven Western Conference first round series goes Saturday in


For the second spring in a row, Madison Bowey (right) and the Kelowna Rockets will battle Justin Gutierrez at the Tri-City Americans in the opening round of the WHL playoffs. Kelowna. For at least six current Rockets, this will mark their last crack at winning a WHL championship. Among them is 21-yearold forward Tyrell Goulbourne, one of three over-age players on the club. The Edmonton native expects experience and past disappointments to work in the Rockets’


favour in the spring of 2015. “I think the previous two years everybody had high expectations and thought it maybe it was going to be a little easier than it was,” Goulbourne said. “I don’t think that’s the case this year, everybody knows what it takes to win and everybody knows what it

takes to lose, too. “We’re going to have to be working as hard as we can,” Goulbourne continued, “taking advantage of the opportunity we have because this really is the best chance we’ve had the past three years.” Goulbourne is also among a group of key leaders that will be

depended on if the Rockets are to have long-term success in the playoffs. At the forefront of the leadership core is secondyear captain Madison Bowey. “It’s all of our older guys’ last kick at the can and we don’t want this to end too soon,” said Bowey, 19. “It’s up to us, the older guys like Leon (Draisaitl) and me to lead the way. We have to be prepared for every game and every shift and lead this team to good things.” With the week off between the end of the regular season and playoffs, Kelowna is rested and gradually returning to health. The Rockets were uncertain Thursday whether forward Justin Kirkland (lower body) would be ready to go this weekend and his status remains day-to-day. Defenceman Josh Morrissey is still two to three weeks away from a return due to a lower body injury.

Father’s Day walk for prostate cancer awareness returns Barry Gerding

Local awareness about prostate cancer will be given a boost with the return of the Father’s Day Walk/Run For Prostate Cancer, set for June 21 in Kelowna. The fundraiser has been absent from Kelowna for the past

two years, after having been held the previous five years before that under the sponsorship of Safeway. Leah LaRiviere, executive director of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of B.C., said the event is returning due to the new sponsorship support of the financial investment firm Raymond

Zokol Dental Centre

Dr. Deborah Zokol

Dr. Deborah Zokol and Associates are pleased to announce … YES, we are accepting new patients! We provide general dentistry as well as cosmetic dental services in both Vernon and Kelowna. Ask about our complimentary Starter Bleach Kits. We offer oral sedation. The Clear Alternative to Braces

James. “They stepped up and said this is something we want to do with you,” LaRiviere said. “The one stipulation for them was there had to be a walk in Kelowna and we were absolutely on board with that.” The event takes place also in Burnaby, Victoria, Kamloops and Chilliwack. LaRiviere said the goal is to raise $350,000 from the various prostate cancer walk/run events across the province. “It’s important from an awareness standpoint but these events also generate about 60 per cent of the foundation’s budget for the program services and research grants we provide,” she said. While awareness of prostate cancer continues to improve, LaRiviere admits it is about 10 years behind that of breast cancer. “Part of the reason for that is men are not inclined to want to publicly talk about it, even to their family and friends, and we don’t have a test

like a mammography that can show cancer in the prostate the same way we have for breasts,” she said. She said it’s important for men to get a DNR (digital rectal exam) when they turn 40, especially if there is a genetic disposition in the family to prostate cancer, and get a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test on a regular basis going forward. “The most important aspect of this is to establish a baseline reading so a doctor can monitor your PSA readings going forward. A high reading by itself doesn’t always mean you have prostate cancer,” she said. LaRiviere cited another example of how far prostate cancer has yet to go in terms of greater public awareness. She said the Globe & Mail newspaper recently published a graphic of the human body, pointing out all the areas where cancer can be prevalent. “The one area they failed to mention in

that graphic is prostate cancer. It is the number one cancer among men, one-in-seven men will be diagnosed with it, and they failed to mention it in that graphic,” she said. “So when you see something like that, it says we are not there yet in terms of the level of awareness. We have a long way to go yet in educating men about awareness as there often are no immediate signs or symptoms that you have a problem. You can’t simply It’s important from an awareness standpoint but these events also generate about 60 per cent of the (Prostate Cancer Foundation of B.C.’s) budget for the program services and research grants we provide Leah LaRiviere

wait until you can’t pee,” she said. “If you catch it early, there are many different treatments available today to allow you to live a long and healthy life.

But men have difficulty talking about prostate cancer. I know one person who went to prostate cancer support meetings but told his wife he was going bowling. “Some people ask me why I do what I do, and it’s because guys won’t talk about it. It’s a very private thing for someone and difficult for them to talk about, so I talk for them and our foundation offers support.” Participants can register for the Father’s Day Walk/Run For Prostate Cancer in Kelowna online at thefathersdayrun. ca. Kids under 12 can participate for free, and the registration fee of $35 is waived if you fundraiser $125 in pledges. There will be lots of prizes and giveaways for all participants along with special prizes for the top individual and team fundraisers, and the fastest male and female runners although that aspect of the walk/run is meant to be an individual goal. “We want to recognize that side of it but our

intent here is for a family fun event,” said LaRiviere. The event will take place at Mission Creek Regional Park on Springfield Road, with registration starting at 8 a.m., and the walk/run participants starting out at 9:30 a.m. As the presenting sponsor, Paul Allison, chairman and CEO of Raymond James Canada, said his company is committed to making a difference to those individuals and families living with prostate cancer. “We know that prostate cancer, like all cancers, deeply affects individuals and families—our employees, our clients and many others throughout our communities,” Allison said. “We want to help raise awareness and support for prostate cancer across British Columbia and the rest of Canada.” There is more information about prostate cancer available at the website

assessments, such as identifying postural imbalances, range of motion testing, manual muscle testing, as well as the results of MRIs, CT scans, and X-rays allow us to precisely locate the site of injury as well as identify the cause and extent of the injury. The Chinese medicine system gives insight into the nature of a condition as well as any underlying internal imbalances in the body that may be contributing to an injury and hindering its recovery. By combining both eastern and western methods, we can activate the body’s healing mechanisms to their fullest and get better long term treatment results for our patients. Acupuncture for sports medicine involves directly treating the site of the injury with local points. We do this in order to increase circulation to the area, release tight muscles and soft tissue, relieve inflammation, and activate local healing. The reason for treating the site of the injury is simplethe body responds to trauma or injury with an inflammatory response. We use Western anatomy and physiology to assess

Needle Notes JAMES KAUFMAN the injury and determine which body tissues are involved. An injury can occur in many different areas: on the shallowest level, the skin, fascia and surface of the muscles can be affected. In the intermediate layers, injury can occur in the belly of the muscle, the tendons, and the ligaments. On the deepest level, the periosteum, bone, and joint capsule can be injured. An acupuncturist in sports medicine can treat all of these types of injures using different needling techniques and depths. In Western medicine, sports injuries are typically viewed as strictly musculo-skeletal in nature. This reflects our Western scientific process of reductionism, the idea that a complex system can be completely understood in terms of its simpler parts or components. However, in Chinese medicine we never remove a symptom

from its wider context. While the injury may be to the knee, that knee is still connected to the rest of the body, and whether that body is young or old, fit or in poor health, are factors which of course will affect the healing process. It is rare for anyone to be in perfect health, even a top athlete. By identifying the deeper more internal imbalances of the body, we are also identifying hidden factors that may be contributing to the injury and hindering recovery. So in addition to local treatment of the injured tissues, we also treat other parts of the body to influence overall functioning and promote homeostasis. This is one of the key differences between the Chinese medicine style of acupuncture versus the type of acupuncture called IMS (intramuscular stimulation) performed by other therapists. James Kaufman is a registered acupuncturist at Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, 1625 Ellis St, Kelowna.

The Prow, outside Scottsdale, Ariz., was architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s home from 1937. Today they house the his School of Architecture and Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

The Arizona legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright contributor

Thousands of senior citizens migrate to the Phoenix area each year seeking sun, golf and the good life. Then there’s Frank Lloyd Wright. He landed in the Sonoran Desert as a 62-year-old snowbird in 1929 and went on to generate one of the greatest architectural legacies of the 20th century. Here, in the final, remarkable flowering of a career that ultimately spanned seven decades, he built a winter home and studio; established a school (which still operates today); and conjured a handful of the most influential and inspirational pieces of architecture in America— including New York City’s Guggenheim Museum. Though many of the

masterpieces he crafted during this period were erected elsewhere, he also designed and built about a dozen significant projects in and around Phoenix, many of which still stand and offer public tours. Here’s a small selection of Wright (and Wright-related) sites on the must-see list.


In 1937, having already spent some time in the Sonoran Desert, Wright bought a plot of land at the foot of the McDowell Mountains and started to dream. He envisioned a style of architecture that grew out of the sweeping vistas and sun-baked rocks of Arizona. And piece by piece, with the help of students, apprentices and acolytes, the dream he called Taliesin West began to take shape. Today, the compound

consists of about a dozen interconnected structures that house the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Together, the buildings function as a sort of 3D sketchbook, introducing visitors from all over the world to Wright’s revolutionary concept of “organic” architecture.

An organic building, in Wright’s view, was one whose site, form and materials coalesced into a unified whole. The apotheosis of this idea is Fallingwater, the architect’s residential masterwork in rural Pennsylvania. It’s built over a waterfall and is so sublimely formed and scaled that it appears to

bloom out of the hillside, instead of sitting on it. Likewise, Taliesin West looks and feels like an extension of the desert— low, rocky, spare and flooded with light. Its walls are masonry; the ceilings are canvas; and in Wright’s time, the windows were wide-open apertures to the desert air. (After he died, his more

Devout design geeks should opt for the threehour Behind the Scenes tour ($70-$75), which includes tea in the Taliesin Fellowship dining room, a talk by a Wright specialist and a peek into the architect’s humble living quarters, complete with his books and his surprisingly modern stainless-steel shower. 12345 N.

campus of Arizona State University in Tempe when he was nearing 90; it was one of his final public projects. While it may not be the equal of his best work—it looks a little like an upside-down wedding cake on stilts—it has an interesting origin story. In the 1950s, Wright designed an opera house for the city of Baghdad, at the behest of Iraq’s King Faisal II. But the king was assassinated in 1958, and his family’s monarchy deposed, so the plans were shelved. Not long after, ASU president Grady Gammage approached Wright to design a signature concert hall for the campus. Wright (the story goes; some details are in dispute) took the Baghdad plans, brushed them off, stripped them down to fit a university

Wright didn’t live to see the 3,000-seat hall built, but today you can tour the interior, with its graciously intertwining curves and tiered balconies, or see a show there almost any weekend night.

This arresting building is another Wright project designed for one site but erected on another. It was originally meant to anchor the campus of a proposed Southwest Christian Seminary, but the seminary folded and the school was never built. More than a decade after Wright’s death, his widow granted Phoenix’s First Christian Church the right to implement the plans. The finished structure, with its tall, pointy spire and even taller, pointier bell tower, makes a strange and wonderful architectural gesture: the artist stretching toward the divine. The metaphor holds,

indoors, as worshippers pass through a lowceilinged lobby into an open, airy room of worship, moving from the earthly to the celestial. All around are rough stones—characteristic of Wright’s Arizona projects—and angles moving all directions, while small stained-glass windows overhead call to mind the intricately patterned skin of a snake. Back outside, the scaly roof evokes another desert animal (though not one native to Arizona): the armadillo. And the 120-foot bell tower confounds: It’s designed to appear triangular from all sides, but it’s actually four-sided; and is said to be constructed of 300 tons of concrete, stone and steel, with no interior supporting structure.

This stop on the Frank Lloyd Wright tour of central Arizona was not designed by Wright at all, but by Paolo Soleri, a revered architect, urban planner and philosopher who passed through the Taliesin Fellowship in the late 1940s. Soleri, who was born in Italy in 1919 and died just two years ago in Phoenix, extended the idea of organic architecture in new and different directions. His philosophy of “arcology”—the integration of architecture and ecology—has inspired generations of thinkers concerned with pollution, population, consumption and quality of life. Arcosanti, whose origins date to 1970, was conceived as a kind of living laboratory to explore some of Soleri’s ideas about living structures, communities and urban planning. Essentially, it’s a counter

model to urban sprawl, in which people live, play and work in a very compact area. A windbell foundry is based at Arcosanti, providing much of the community’s income. Arcosanti’s master plan is ambitious: It points ahead to a desert Utopia, where 5,000 people will coexist, sharing values of proximity, reduced consumption, creativity, frugality and so on. However, after four decades of planning and construction, it’s still in a formative stage: Fewer than 100 people currently live on site year-round, with many more coming and going as long- or short-term students, volunteers and visitors. At once visionary and unfinished, Arcosanti’s geometric, concrete forms look oddly like relics of the future. Visitors are welcome at Arcosanti for a day or overnight.

news _______________________________________________ PULLING YOUR LEG

Fun times when papers played April Fool’s pranks Don’t look now, but here comes Wednesday. While some folks become somewhat preoccupied or fixated with calendar dates such as Friday the 13th or the Ides of March— my attention is always somewhat stirred by April 1. It’s an affliction from my earlier days as a carefree chaotic reporter and then later (with slightly more trepidation yet professional giddiness) as an editor. Newspaper issues produced on April Fools allow media hacks the rare opportunity to totally create and exaggerate supposed news stories with absolutely no regard for facts or details—and to do so largely with a sense of impunity and full permission. In fact, it is the one time when absolute absurdity and frivolity are encouraged. Despite the ongoing (and sometimes understandable) perception that most media have no use for facts and simply make up the news—such is most often not the case. Perhaps in today’s high speed competitive world of instant info and equally instant news coverage there is more pressure than ever before to get the story first and the facts later. However, the prime goal of most legitimate media outlets is to get it right. Many moons ago media types would humorously suggest that one should, “never let the facts stand in a way of a good story. Clearly the term was coined with the fullest amount of sarcasm and irony. On April 1 though, all the rules are tossed aside. Every city and newspaper or radio station in the nation likely has an April Fools bluff or two in the archives of legendary proportion. After more than four decades in the industry,

Hodge Podge CHARLIE HODGE I can recall a few gems I was involved with. My fondest (and one of the two more infamous spoofs) was an article penned in this newspaper sometime in the late 1970s or early 80s (fading memories of an old guy). The saga was actually penned by three of us at the Capital News: Glen Schaeffer, Rainer Zigenhagen, and me. The bold headline across the top of the page read. FISH MAY FROLIC IN CITY PARK, with the kicker (sub-head) stating. Downtown Kelowna to sink into Okanagan Lake. With the fake byline of Shafe Zign’spitz and a cartoon-like drawing by friend Jim Krahn, readers should have already known that the full page story was a farce. But most did not. The absurd story

started off sounding slightly plausible and quickly deteriorated into total foolishness, but it was a classic example of how people read what they want, skim most stories, and are willing to believe just about anything if it is printed in the paper. The story perpetuated a myth that downtown Kelowna is built on a thin shelf of land that stretches as far as Rutland and that if a significant tremor hit the valley the entire downtown could easily slip into Okanagan Lake. We quoted all kinds of fictitious experts such as the Minister of Bridges and other Large Concrete Objects, the chairperson of the Kelowna PoopDeck Society (Yacht Club), and the spokesperson Peter Blabalot of the Save the Itsy Bitsy Creature Foundation. Yet people still believed it. To this day, many locals

and newcomers alike will lament how Kelowna is built on a huge very thin shelf of land, which is simply urban legend. Despite having helped pen the myth I still have folks adamantly argue with me and insist that they know, “it is true cause, well, everyone knows that.” While the article caused huge reaction and chuckles, my favourite was the next morning when we all arrived at work. Vern Boehlke, president of the original downtown business association, had somehow hung a huge canoe from his building’s two-storey roof, just above our newspaper office (then) on Bernard Avenue. A number of years later, while running a paper in Parksville, we ran an April Fool’s article which said the province was building a bridge from either Parksville or Nanaimo to the mainland. We received more than a half-dozen phone calls from readers wanting to

losses suffered by road traffic victims on a day-today basis. Losses regularly exceed the minimum. What happens if you, or anyone else driving your car, cause losses to an injured victim that exceed your insurance coverage? You pay the difference, even if it eats up the equity in your house and wipes out your life savings. You can avoid that risk by driving safely and attentively and ensuring anyone else driving your car does the same. We should be doing that anyway. The problem is that given the horribly inattentive driving culture each of us has grown up in, any one of us might forget, even temporarily, to give full, focused attention to the important task at hand.

I don’t feel comfortable unless I’ve got at least $2 million of liability insurance, and I consider myself one of the safest, most attentive drivers out there. Now put yourself at a rental car outlet in Hawaii where you and your family are holidaying for the first time. You confidently approach the friendly clerk at the counter to pay the fee, pre-arranged by your travel agent, and pick up the keys. That’s when the issue of insurance comes up. You are offered additional insurance that can be as much as the pre-arranged rental fee, doubling your car rental expense. Additional to what? How much insurance is provided with your rental contract? The minimum.  That minimum, required by Hawaiian law, is even less than in B.C.— $20,000 if you have only one victim; more

Achieving Justice PAUL HERGOTT than one and it jumps all the way up to $40,000 (sarcasm intended). What does one do? I paid the nice lady. It turns out that buying insurance when you pick up your rental car is like leaving your cooler behind and buying beer from a beach bar. The smart thing to do is to get your insurance in order before you get on the plane. You might find out that you already have all the insurance you need and you can confidently decline the horrendously expensive insurance protection offered by the rental car company. If not, you can surely purchase the insurance from a less expensive source, such as through

your auto insurance broker or travel agent. What you should not do, in my opinion, is waive the insurance hoping, but not knowing, that you are covered by other insurance. It’s tricky stuff. I’m about as sophisticated as it gets when it comes to these kinds of things and I didn’t have a clue. Certainly don’t just “ask around.” Go to the horse’s mouth, i.e. ICBC and other insurance companies you may deal with. Also look carefully to see what coverage might be offered through your credit cards. It is critical to remember that just because you might have comprehensive (damage to vehicle) coverage doesn’t mean you have liability and other important insurance (like insurance to cover the losses your rental car

New UBCO sailing club Angie Brown contributor

The UBC Okanagan sailing club hit the docks at the Kelowna Yacht Club (KYC) for the first time on March 21 and 22. The organization was only founded two months ago, but is already one of the biggest on campus, with nearly 80 members. It rents boats from the KYC Sailing Club, which in turn allows sailors to use the docks. Sacha Roberts, the group’s president, said the goal is for everyone to come out and try sailing because “it’s not a sport that many people have access to. “If they like it, we offer subsidized lessons. The long-term goal is to put funding aside and buy boats, so we can create a sailing team from this club.” Any UBCO student is allowed to join the organization. The membership fee is $30 and includes an introduction to sailing

weekend, which is five hours of sailing various types of boats. “As long as you’re a student, you can come try it,” said Roberts. This was the members’ first event, but from now on it will be hosting two sailing sets every Sunday. It costs $15 for a threehour lesson, and the sets go from noon to 3 p.m., and 3 to 6 p.m. Roberts said the club is good for helping students get out into the community because the UBCO campus is “really far from everything. “The fact that they have access to come downtown and try a new sport gives them a new opportunity to include themselves in the community. Especially the ones who live on campus,” she said. The group has already attended a regatta in February hosted by UBC Vancouver and plans to get a solid sailing team together for next year.

Roberts explained that KYC is always looking for people to sign up for its summer camps. “A lot of people don’t know that this is open to the public and that it’s really affordable for kids,” she said. “That’s how I got into it. My parents sent me to a sailing school and I never left. We just want people to try the sport and get into it—it’s the best.”

Boov begin to relocate all Earthlings, a resourceful teenage girl named Tip (Rihanna) manages to avoid capture and begins the road trip of a lifetime looking for the location of her mother (Lopez). Along the way, she befriends a banished Boov named Oh (Parsons) who has accidentally notified his people of her whereabouts. Both Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez contribute to the soundtrack of the movie, with the former performing the song Towards the Sun and the latter contributing Feel the Light. Lopez’s participation may have also contributed to the name change of the Boov who calls himself Oh. In the book, he is called J. Lo which, of course, is her nickname. With Parson’s manic and distinctive voice as well as colourful action scenes accompanied by pop tunes, expect a rollicking adventure punctuated by slapstick humour. Get Hard features Will Farrell as James King, a millionaire businessman who is convicted for fraud and the judge wants to make an example of him by sentencing him to 10 years in San Quentin. King is given 30 days to get his affairs in order so he enlists Darnell (Kevin Hart), who the millionaire assumes has been to prison, to get him ready for life behind bars. However, Darnell is actually a hardworking small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone spent time in the joint. If you are looking for something that is going to equally offend you as it makes you laugh, Get Hard is the movie for you. It is produced by Farrell and partner Adam McKay, who together are responsible for Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and the comedy website Funny or Die.

Construct your own meaning from Shuebrook’s art On View LIZ WYLIE to accomplishments and achievements and discoveries of these and other artists. Ron Shuebrook: Drawings was curated by Ontario-based artist John Kissick, and was organized and circulated by the Thames Art Gallery in Chatham, Ontario, in collaboration with the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa, the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre, Guelph, Ontario, the Mount Saint Vincent University Gallery, Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the Kelowna Art Gallery. Shuebrook is also known nationally as a painter. He has lived in several places in Canada,

and is currently based in Guelph and Blandford, Nova Scotia. It has been very exciting for the Kelowna Art Gallery that the artist added to the ARTIST’S COLLECTION

When visitors come to look at the charcoal drawings by senior artist Ron Shuebrook currently on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery, they will thereby actually enter the artist’s world—his interior landscape. And once they find themselves in there, gallery visitors may notice that these spaces are populated by all kinds of artists and thinkers, even writers and musicians, although the drawings themselves are abstract and not portraits by any means. Shuebrook is an artist who has absorbed a great deal from art of the past and of the modern period, and he is an avid reader and lover of film, theatre, craft, dance, and music. In fact, Shuebrook is a fabulous exemplar of what an artist can achieve with even the simplest of materials—in this case some charcoal and sheets of paper—when he or she has developed an aesthetic and vocabulary, and can draw from both the richness of their education, and of looking at art over a lifetime, for example. It is amazing how Shuebrook’s works can open up for each viewer—there is a whole universe waiting for each of us to step into. Although one may sense this artist standing on the shoulders of those who came before him, this is not to say Shuebrook’s work is derivative. And one does not need to know anything about the history of art in order to enjoy these drawings just as they are. Everyone brings their own experience to their looking and encounter with Shuebrook’s work, and each person constructs their own meaning from this process. But, just as is the case with serious music or fine wine, for example, the more one does know, the deeper that enjoyment can extend. Whiffs and nods to Piero, Cezanne, Hofmann, and Marsden Hartley, to name a few, permeate the works, references that are almost subliminal they are so subtle. Not as fully blown as actual homages, Shuebrook’s drawings give just a slight nod here and there

Thanks to you! Change Starts Here. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of employee workplace campaigns, corporate and individual donors, sponsors and volunteers who invested their time, money or both to ensure the United Way Central and South Okanagan Similkameen (CSO) continues to change lives.

It is a woefully outmoded term, but no other word really does the job as well to describe Shuebrook as the term “master.” And he is a master of the vocabulary and relationships of art: space, line, shape, texture, and scale. He

does not so much grapple with these aspects of art making as he does marvel at them, the way we might as we manipulate a bit of modeling clay in our fingers into recognizable forms. Shuebrook’s issues are ostensibly art issues,

One partner for all your automatic entrance needs

and yet, after we absorb this aspect of his work, there is something more, something less tangible and harder to put into words. In the end, there is so much meaning and emotional content in Ron Shuebrook’s drawings, that each visitor’s experience of them will be totally individual and unique. Ultimately what is the artist talking about or intent on expressing? He summed it up in a line quoted in the show’s accompanying catalogue, saying “I’m chasing that sense of what it is to be alive.” Ron Shuebrook: Drawings will remain on view at the Kelowna Art Gallery until April 26.

Eligible program beneficiaries include: seniors, students, Aboriginal peoples, newcomers to Canada, recipients of social assistance, and persons with a disability. Across the country there are 2,000 community organizations representing a team of over 16,000 volunteers providing free tax preparation clinics. In 2014, CVITP volunteers helped over 600,000 Canadians file their tax returns. The federal government believes strongly in the

These new funds will allow the expanded use of technology, providing additional support and building an even stronger network of free CVITP clinics across the country.

Many people believe tuberculosis has been eradicated but this is far from true. Every year nine million people world-wide get sick with TB and some of those people live right here. In 2008, the illness took hold in the Kelowna area, resulting in a sixyear outbreak that was finally declared over earlier this year. “The end of the outbreak was made possible by dedicated staff, team work, and collaboration,” said Dr. Robert Parker, acknowledging Interior Health’s TB outbreak management team, which worked in partnership with several community organizations and the B.C. Centre for Disease Control to identify and treat new cases and minimize the public health risk. “Prior to 2008 we did see a few TB cases

each year but we didn’t really see active, ongoing TB transmission,” said Parker.“However, in late May 2008 when we identified TB in an individual staying at a local shelter, we knew we had a high risk situation. Additional case finding confirmed we had active TB transmission occurring and we knew that we were probably facing a multi-year outbreak.”  The outbreak occurred primarily among homeless populations in the Kelowna area with a small number of linked cases identified in neighbouring communities. During the course of the outbreak 52 active TB cases were identified and approximately 2,400 contacts were exposed to infectious TB. Dr. Sue Pollock, who led the outbreak management team for the last three years, said many factors contribute to these kinds of

outbreaks.             “Outbreaks among the homeless are strongly related to social determinants of health and disparities in employment, income, safe housing, and access to health care,” said Parker. “They typically last several years and require a tremendous amount of resources and community coordination to bring under control.” The outbreak was challenging to manage, according to Interior Health. Those most at risk were often transient and had little interaction with health-care providers. To overcome this, IH’s medical health officers and the communicable disease unit worked closely with community outreach services including street nurses, shelters and community agencies. Through these partnerships, street savvy outreach workers utilized

their connections to reach hard to locate clients and regular screening and symptom checks were offered in locations where the clients felt safe and comfortable. Sharon Cook, Kelowna General Hospital health service administrator, noted the outbreak also had a significant impact on acute services. “A TB outbreak in the community meant we would see more TB patients in our hospital so we needed to take additional measures to reduce the risk to patients and staff. Upgrades were made to our isolation rooms at KGH, we implemented new clinical support tools and provided additional training for our staff.” Managing the TB outbreak also involved a CSI-like science called ‘genomics’ using DNA from the TB bacteria and other data collected by nurses.

Getting that special wedding shot takes creativity Angie Brown contributor

Newly-married couples want to remember their big day for years to come, and picking the right wedding photographer to capture the moment is an important step in that direction. Joel Jaszczyszak is a local photographer who has been shooting weddings for eight years. He shot his first wedding when he was in Grade 8, and says his passion grew from there. Although he thinks it’s awesome to see cameras so readily available

photographers shouldn’t stay in an area they feel comfortable in.” The Okanagan is filled with beautiful areas for photo shoots, and Jaszczyszak says it’s impossible for him to pick a favourite. Wineries and vineyards are very popular, and so are photographs down by Okanagan lake. “You can really get creative at those locations, and many brides are coming just for the lake view,” he says. Most of Jaszczyszak’s clients hire him for a full day, which is nine hours on average.

He likes to stay until the end of the first dance so he can get photos of everyone having a great time. His wedding packages start at $2,750 and include six hours of wedding coverage, postprocessing and editing, full printing rights, and an hour-long free engagement shoot. “It gives clients a chance to get to know me and how I shoot.” Jaszczyszak says he can get mostly everything into a six-hour shoot, but he recommends at least eight and a half hours to be safe.


Wedding photography has become increasingly more creative as the industry progresses, says Joel Jaszczyszak, the photographer who shot the images on this page. He is always trying to push his creative boundaries to get that special shot for a newly-wed couple.

to consumers, he still recommends hiring a wedding photographer for your special day. “Photography is more than just picking up a camera and shooting,” he explains. “There are a lot of technicalities to it and there is a lot to study. It’s very in-depth.” Jaszczyszak says he is always trying to push his boundaries as a photographer. “If I come back without doing something I haven’t done before, I feel disappointed,” he says. “Photography is such a rising industry…so

Set the mood with the right decor Angie Brown contributor

Brides often dream of their perfect wedding décor, but sometimes putting the ideas into motion by themselves can be stressful and difficult. That’s where wedding decorators come in. Yuriko Larson is the owner of Vintage Origami, a Kelownabased decorating company that specializes in vintage décor. Her company offers wedding stylization designs, delivery, set-up, and takedown.

She recommends that brides hire a decorator for ease of mind. “Many of my clients are coming here for destination weddings, and this way they don’t have to worry about knowing the layout of their venue. Plus, we’ve already built a relationship with the venue management and staff” she says. “We’re already a good team and it’s less pressure on the bride.” Larson says she works closely with brides to help them decorate within their budget. “A lot of brides are

going on Pinterest and looking at weddings beyond their budget, or beyond their capabilities,” she explains. “I know what realistically can be created with available resources, and my job is to make sure the whole wedding day is uniform.” She says Pinterest planning can quickly get eclectic, so hiring a decorator helps keep things simple as well as beautiful. Larson says trends differ from year to year, but pastel colours are currently what’s popular.

“It’s still very much about lace, blush pinks, and a pastel theme.” Although she gets requests for pastel weddings often, she still makes every wedding as personalized as possible. Larson says Vintage Origami initially started out as a rental company, but she moved to decorating after seeing how hectic wedding décor can get. “I saw family and friends being busy-bodies on wedding days. They were putting sweat into decorating, and it was hard to see the mother

of the bride taking down decorations,” she says. “It’s really nice to have a decorator take care of the details.” Her company offers two bridal packages – bride from afar, and custom décor. Bride from afar includes all the details couples need for décor on the day. The custom décor package offers items like personalized stationary and custom backdrops. Vintage Origami has been in Operation for five years and won the “Best Wedding Décor” award in the 2013 Professional Wedding Awards.

Hole in one for Golf Sportwagon


Austin, TX – The latest seventh generation Volkswagen Golf has been a huge hit, winning the World Car of the Year award, along with the North American Car of the Year and several other titles. The effort and billions of dollars, VW invested in its small car platform, called MQB, is at the core of this success. This lighter, yet stronger platform is so flexible the Volkswagen Group has plans to use it for dozens of vehicles throughout the many brands it builds. The benefit to the consumer




The smooth power, good feedback to the driver…reminds us why this car has won so many awards.

efficient engine and, with huge economies of scale, VW can lower the price. The Golf hatchback along with the sportier GTI is available in the market now and very soon the Sportwagon (station wagon), built on the same successful platform, will arrive. Looks One could be forgiven for not noticing the major changes in this 2015 model but that is the way VW likes to do things-- keep the exterior looking familiar, yet radically update the things that are less obvious. The one thing that should get any buyer’s attention is the new starting price of $22,495, which is roughly $1,100 less than the last model. In addition, the base model gets standard 15inch alloy wheels, heated seats, Bluetooth and a backup camera for a total of $2,000 of additional value. The Sportwagon is sold as the base Trendline, the middle $24,695 Comfortline and the $30,495 Highline, with a $1,400 premium for an automatic transmission and $2,300 more for a TDI diesel engine. Inside This Sportwagon is a true sport utility vehicle. It has the lower, sportier stance of a car coupled with a huge cargo area that would put most small crossovers to shame. The front seats are heated and the rear seats split and fold. The remainder of the cabin is the same as the regular Golf family, with front and rear passenger dimensions the same except for rear passenger headroom, which makes way for the beautiful panoramic sunroof. The dash has high quality switches and dials and even the base model is fitted with a 14.7cm (5.8-inch) radio screen that doubles as a backup camera. This screen size is a bit on the small side but VW will increase the size slightly when the 2016 model arrives this fall. Drive What can’t be seen but is instantly obvious when driving is the new 170hp 1.8L turbocharged base engine, that is so much more advanced and responsive, compared to the old, less efficient 5-cylinder in the previous model. This engine has superb midrange torque and it runs on less expensive regular fuel. It’s efficient too, using 9.5L/100km in the city and 6.6L on the highway. The

optional diesel, with 150hp, but more importantly, 236 lb.-ft. of torque is only marginally more efficient, rated at 7.7L city and 5.4L on the highway. Considering this engine is $2,300 more expensive, the new turbo gasoline engine will certainly be a sensible choice for drivers that don’t pile on the kms. The gasoline engine gets a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic; the diesel gets a 6-speed manual or the high-tech duel clutch automatic.

Golf Sportwagon. It’s too bad both engines are not offered with the TDI’s transmissions. Great news for VW fans, waiting for all wheel drive (AWD), the 2017 model will arrive with AWD in the Sportwagon and that technology should spread to the rest of the Golf line. Verdict Volkswagen held the launch event for this Sportwagon in Texas, hoping for beautiful sunny weather but we were treated to pouring rain. With the wipers plugging away and the radio on, this latest Golf feels all grown up, almost “Audi Light”. The smooth power, along with the good feedback to the driver, plus the well-insulated cabin reminds us why this car has won so many awards. The Sportwagon takes all the goodness of the hatchback and shares it in a slightly longer and more useful package. If you are in the market for a small sport utility, give this truly sporty utility a try. zack.spencer@drivewaybc. ca

Still sharp looking after all these years: Volvo C30 The Volvo C30 is a compact two-door hatchback that seats four people in up-level comfort. I’m always struck by how attractive and sharp looking it can still look, when I see one on the road, even though its design dates back to 2006 and Volvo last sold the C30 in Canada in 2013. That distinctive big-glass rear hatch is a tribute to the Volvo P1800, a classic 70s era sports car. We join the C30 story in 2009 when a mild redesign brought new standard equipment and added a new R-Design package. Heated front seats, front fog lights and an upgraded 8-speaker audio system with steering wheel-mounted controls became standard features. A base C30 comes with a 2.4-litre, 5-cylinder engine that can produce 168-horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque.

The T5 edition of the C30 comes with a turbocharged 2.5 litre, 5-cylinder engine that can produce 227-horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed manual transmission was standard and it came with the optional 5-speed automatic with Geartronic. Fuel economy the same as the 2.4-litre. Volvo uses a quiet, low-pressure turbocharger on the 2.5-litre engine and it’s engineered to provide good pulling power at low

engine speeds. Comparing it to the 2.4L, the 2.5L can develop an addition 66 ft lbs of torque at an engine speed as low as 1500 rpm. The side doors are extra long and allow good access to the rear seats. However, they can also be awkward to open in a tight parking stall. The rear seatbacks split 50/50 and fold to create a flat expanded load floor with 57 litres of cargo room. Even with the seatbacks up there’s still 37 litres of storage space. The SIPS (side-impact protection) and the WHIPS (whiplash neck injury

protection) are just two of the many great safety features built into a C30. Optional advanced safety systems available included a camera-based Blind Spot Information System (BLIS). In 2010, Volvo revised C30’s trim line up and it came in Base 2.4i, Premium, R-Design, T5 Premium and T5 R-Design trim levels. The 2.4i engine editions were discontinued in 2011. It also got a styling refresh that included new fenders, trapezoidal headlights, lower front valance, and honeycomb-pattern grille with larger badge. Some

small changes followed in 2012 and no changes were made for its final (2013) year in Canada. Compact yet comfortable, the Volvo C30 has a bigger car feel and a sporty, funto-drive disposition, yet it excels in both ride comfort and safety appointments.

Personalize your truck safely Purchasing a new or used truck is exciting but personalizing it is even more fun. Believe me when I tell you, buying the truck is the cheap part.

Rally driving teaches skill we could all use.

Rally driving an art form


One of the more popular things to do these days is to install a suspension lift along with larger tires and wheels. Ian Harwood


I have seen people over the years spend upwards of $25,000 or more on customization. One of the more popular things to do these days is to install a suspension lift along with larger tires and wheels. If you’re going to tackle this yourself, here are a few things you should know. Installation: Many manufacturers offer manuals for installing lift kits but some installations are quite intricate, requiring some welding or cutting in order to add some necessary components. In this case, having a mechanic or a few knowledgeable friends around will help make the job go smoothly. Additional modifications: Upgrading to taller tires also means that a number of components may require part upgrades or some tuning to compensate. For instance, a truck’s engine is tuned at specific gear


Keep safety in mind while personalizing your truck. ratios to propel the vehicle. When adding taller tires, the gear ratios must be changed accordingly, since the engine has to spin much larger, heavier tires. You will also be required to purchase a speedometer recalibration tool, so you have an accurate reading. Again, consult with more experienced individuals for further insight.

to reduce the strain.

Highway driving: Larger, wider tires can sometimes result in instability on roads or a noisy, uncomfortable ride, particularly at high speeds. Also, more aggressive off road tires tend to wear faster on the highway and traction might not be as great as you would expect on wet roads.

Legality: Some lift kits create such a serious change in your suspension system that it may not be legal. Check the suspension regulations within your province to be sure.

Weight: larger tires are heavier, which can put a lot of strain on your suspension, particularly if it is a stock suspension. Trusted, durable suspension components and lighter aluminum wheels can sometimes help

Handling: Adding a truck suspension lift kit will undoubtedly raise the vehicle’s centre of gravity, resulting in less stable turns. This is a common problem when installing lift kits, but is mostly just a matter of becoming accustomed to a vehicle’s change in performance.

Useful accessories: Before installing a lift kit, it’s a good idea to first examine if any components will be affected by your vehicle’s new height. Here are a few useful accessories that may need to be upgraded: Brake Upgrades: Stock brakes do not always accommodate larger tires, or will wear easily due to the


added strain. Drivetrain and Differential: Axles, gears, differential covers, lockers and more ensure that your drivetrain is up to par with your suspension. Replacement parts: Longer Control Arms and Track Bars to compensate for the additional height of your truck. Shocks: For those taller lifts, longer shocks will ensure the smoothest performance both on and off road. Other parts: Steering linkage, slip yoke, drive shaft length, u-joint angle, and brake lines are all worthy of consideration before installing suspension lift kits. Search the Internet. There are many sites which offer complete instructions on various suspension lifts. You can download a copy before you make the purchase, and know exactly what is in involved. ian.harwood@drivewaybc. ca

Dalton, New Hampshire – “Every day’s a school day,” is a popular saying of a friend of mine. Some lessons are tougher than others are and we can’t wait for them to be over. Then there are some school days we just don’t want to end. One of those days was with the Team O’Neil Rally School in New Hampshire. Housed on close to 600 acres of land there’s room to stretch out for those new to the art. I call it an art because rally driving is about the fine balance of finesse with throttle, brake and steering input. Make a few mistakes and it’s not a pretty picture. In the journey to master car control skills, there’s also about 10 kilometres of rally-ready trails – which can be driven in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction to mix things up – so there’s not much room for boredom. While I’d been to the school previously, the conditions were completely different. The dry, dirt-covered earth from summertime was now replaced with snow, ice and all the slipperiness your heart desires, thanks to Old Man Winter. Equipped with newfound knowledge, or knowledge that was sitting on the shelf and just needed a little dusting off, the short opening classroom session was not only educational,

but fantastically entertaining and funny. With that completed, the group of Canadian journalists headed out to our chariots. They just happened to be Ford Fiestas. If Ford’s subcompact wasn’t fun enough to drive in a “normal” setting, it sure was here. The Fiestas have mainly stock components, aside from rollover bars, fourpoint seat belts, Bilstein heavy-duty suspension components and performance brake pads. Perhaps that’s what was so appealing. Here were these 120 horsepowered cars, slipping and sliding (sometimes) with grace and poise, and the amount of mirth to be had was limitless. The objective of the day was to factor in left-foot braking techniques on an oval, in a slalom and via what rallying calls the Scandinavian flick. It’s frustrating and rewarding at the same time knowing that the difference between doing it correctly or screwing it up is really only within the gentle feathering of the brakes or the addition of a little more

throttle. Once you find the sweet spot, you want to ride it out for as long as you can. Or until you get too confident and end up in a snow bank! Oops. You still have to be mindful of the surface conditions underneath. But that’s what the school is for. Should your vehicle start dancing when you don’t want it too, you’ll be ready to mitigate damage, or avoid it all together. It gives you a feel for the ever-changing environment and how to be proactive rather than reactive. And while it was all fun and games behind the wheel, it was equally a treat to have a fellow Canuck, a pro nonetheless, take us for a couple of hot laps and show us how it’s really done. Andrew Comrie-Picard (ACP for short) was on hand and put my day’s efforts to shame when he combined all the techniques we had learned, blended them seamlessly together, and then did it a hundred times faster. This day, I learned that speed and finesse go handin-hand. That no matter how many times we drove around the same course, it was always different. That school is a lot of fun and that car control is an art. And that I want to be a rally driver in my next life. Visit for more information.

FEB. 18, 1931 - MARCH 23, 2015 Born in Giscome, B.C. He was an air force brat and moved around a good portion of Canada during the war years eventually finishing school in Cultus Lake. He started his working career with Don Lange Jewellers in various stores throughout the Fraser Valley coming to Kelowna to manage the one here February 18th of 1955 on which day he met his future wife. Just arrived in a new town, it’s his birthday, a double blind date has been organized and it’s a blind date for the other couple too.....doesn’t get much worse. Jean was sitting on the sofa looking this new fellow up and down as he takes her sister out on this blind date. Some months later she happens to take her mother in to his store while shopping and on the spur of the moment said “Mom, see that man over there....I”m going to marry him, and some months later she did. They celebrated their 59th anniversary on March 3rd. He is survived by his wife Jean, daughter Cali Linley (Adam) of Williams Lake, and three sons, Matthew and Richard of Kelowna and Hugh (Shelley) of Victoria. There are eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren, one brother Bill in North Bay and a brother-in-law Walter Bradshaw in Gibsons B.C. He was predeceased by his sister Barbara Bradshaw from Gibsons. Terry had been involved in Kinsmen, Gyro, Kelowna Club, Regatta and the Kelowna Pistol Club having won several national trophies and medals. He was made a life member. In 1966 he joined CHBC as the weatherman and a sales representative. He became assistant manager and then resigned to join his wife at TJ Bikes and Hobbies for the next 17 years. As a hobby shop it carried R/C models. He designed the TJ trainer and they were sold as kits. He loved working with his hands. He made furniture, did carvings, painted, built model ships and was a frustrated architect. He designed many homes here in Kelowna and at the coast. He loved art of any sort, reading (sci-fi). He loved metal detecting and his record was three pieces of gold in one morning. He retired to be able to travel and their best trips were to Bali and the Panama Canal re-positioning Cruise. They played bridge and mahjong with friends alternating games weekly. There will be no service at his request. Condolences may be sent to the family by, 250-860-7077.

June 24, 1942 ~ March 24, 2015 Passed away peacefully in Kelowna Hospice House after a brief battle with cancer at 72 years of age. He leaves to mourn his wife Judie of West Kelowna, daughters Gillian (Rob), their son Gabriel Colvin; Emily Vergnano, grandchildren Eric and Elizabeth Vergnano and Austyn Fallis, all of Kelowna. He is also survived by sisters Dianne (Ron) Willett of Vancouver, their daughter Brenda, grandchildren Lindsay and Nathan, great granddaughter Abby; son Rick (Laura) Willett, grandchildren, Olivia and Sam; Louise (Brian) Collins of Prince Edward Island and son Jason (Kim) Vergnano, Nilan and Kyle, daughter Anna and Simone; Lorraine (Barry) Russell of Delta, Ryan, Sara and Catherine; and by his brother-in-law Peter (Pat) Steeves of Peachland, their sons Bill (Tracey) Steeves, grandsons Brandon, Cory and Trevor; Jim (Kristy) and grandchildren Sean, Sara and Ashley. Denny loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping and just walking in the woods, and as a member of the Peachland Sportsman’s Association for nearly three decades, did what he could to ensure there was healthy habitat for fish and wildlife as a legacy for everyone’s grandchildren. He was born in St. Boniface, Manitoba, but moved out to B.C. with his family in time to begin school in Vancouver, where he grew up and apprenticed as a printer at Pacific Press. It was at the Vancouver Press Club that he met and began dating Judie some 40 years ago and both worked at the Columbian newspaper in New Westminster, he in the composing room and she in editorial, before they indulged a mutual dream and moved to a remote corner of the Cariboo. There they built a log home on 40 acres complete with creek, but beyond the last power line and lived for a number of years before the needs of two young children dictated a move to the Okanagan. Denny worked as a printer at the Kelowna Daily Courier for more than a decade before his retirement from the trade when he began working with another great bunch of people at Northside Industries on the Westside until his retirement in 2007. We will all miss you Denny. You were my rock. You always supported me in my professional and volunteer ventures and you kept me grounded. His request was that no formal service be held but that friends and family gather at his home to reminisce, which we will do on Sunday April 5, from 2-5 p.m. Donations to the Central Okanagan Land Trust or the Okanagan Region Wildlife Heritage Fund Society in his memory would help to further his interest in conservation of land for wildlife.

Get ready to ride

The warm weather and longer days have given Central Okanagan residents a jump on outdoor activities, including bike riding. While cycling is a great way to get around, stay fit and have fun, those riding

in Kelowna are being reminded to keep in mind the city’s traffic bylaws for cycling—all riders are required to wear a bicycle helmet, obey the rules of the road, and ride with lights before dawn or after dusk.

Cycling is not permitted on sidewalks. Motor vehicle drivers are also asked to drive aware, obey posted speed limits, check blind spots before turning and share all roads with people on bikes, especially in

neighbourhoods and school zones. According to the city,in the spring, more children head to and from school on foot or by bike so extra caution when driving in school zones is required. Parking or driving in

bike lanes throughout Kelowna is not permitted. “We’re all just trying to get around town or to and from school safely, whether we’re biking, walking or driving,” said Mike Kittmer, active transportation

He suggests cyclists visit for bicycle safety tips and regulations. “When you follow the rules of the road, drivers respect you and are better able to interact with you safely,” said Kittmer. ”This applies to pathways as well, as cyclists should yield to pedestrians, indicate when you are approaching others to pass and all users should stay to the right on the pathway, as you would on a road”. The City of Kelowna is currently sweeping bike lanes and roadways. To make riding safer and more enjoyable, bike lanes in Kelowna

Treatment for Chronic Foot Pain Available in Kelowna


ain in the feet is one of the most debilitating injuries we can be plagued with; it is felt in the arch of the foot (Plantar Fasciitis), the heel (Plantar Fasciitis or heel spur) or at the back of the ankle (Achilles Tendonitis). Unfortunately, we continuously use our feet, which makes healing from related injuries very difficult.

success, it gives up and healing stops. Shockwave Therapy breaks up scar tissue, restoring the function of the muscle and promoting new blood vessel growth, stimulating faster healing. In fact, in a double blind study published in Journal of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society, 90%of patients suffering from heel and arch pain showed significant improvements with Shockwave. Furthermore, Shockwave Therapy (developed to break up kidney stones) has success rates of between 77%-91% in the treatment of other soft tissue conditions. Results are often experienced within a couple of visits and the treatment is covered by many insurance companies.

DR. RYAN HARRIS Glenmore Chiropractic

Plantar Fasciitis is an overuse injury affecting the fibrous tissue that forms the arch. Heel spurs can form when the fascia tears at the heel attachment and results in pain in the center of the heel. Achilles Tendonitis is irritation of the Achilles where the calf muscle meets the heel and can result in pain in the calf, the Achilles, or the back of the heel. The inflammation from overuse leads to pain as well as deposits of scar tissue, further inflaming the area each time the Achilles or plantar fascia are used. After the body has tried for weeks or months to heal the injury with no

news _____________________________________________________________________ MENTAL HEALTH

Social anxiety disorder is much more than just shyness Everyone knows someone who is painfully shy. More than simple introversion—the person actually seems to fear social situations, public speaking or being put on the spot. And for some, this fear can cause a lot of difficulty in daily functioning. Social anxiety disorder is one of the most common psychiatric conditions, affecting 18 per cent of the

Healing Minds PAUL LATIMER population. It occurs when a person experiences intense fear in one or more social situations, causing considerable distress and impaired ability to function in at least some parts of daily life.

Socially anxious people have a fear of criticism and disapproval, do not like to be the center of attention or to perform under scrutiny. People experiencing social anxiety disorder also often go on to develop other disorders such as depression and substance use disorder. Although the exact causes of social anxiety

are not fully understood, it is thought to be about 20 to 40 percent genetically based with experience accounting for the rest. Although social fear may not sound too terrible a plight, it can be a very debilitating disorder. School-age children may not want to go to school, have difficulty making friends and may have greater difficulty performing in school because of anxiety. They will feel compelled to avoid asking questions or making classroom presentations. They are also likely to resist participating in physical education or other

athletic activities. As adolescents they may have difficulty dating or engaging in important social pursuits. Young adults may lack the confidence to go on to post-secondary education and may avoid applying for jobs because of their social anxiety. Social anxiety disorder often begins early in life —50 percent of those with this condition have developed it by age 11. Some of the earliest warning signs are apparent right from toddlerhood. Children who exhibit a temperamentally anxious predisposition and who show behavioural

inhibition are most likely to develop social anxiety. The good news is that although a child with a shy disposition will likely remain shy throughout life, it does not necessarily have to become a disabling disorder. Childhood interventions for highly anxious children have the potential to prevent the development of full-blown social anxiety and its related issues later in life. Childhood behavioural inhibition typically emerges during the second year of life around the time of normal stranger anxiety – it involves excessive shyness and avoidance behaviour

in social situations. Adverse environmental experiences such as abuse, bullying, neglect or even simple lack of sensitivity to the fears of the child can have a negative impact on how this early anxiety evolves. Similarly, supportive encouragement to social engagement could help in overcoming fears and is quite similar to what happens during cognitive therapy for adults with social anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, many parents do not have the natural ability to respond appropriately to an anxious child. Sometimes this is because they are themselves socially anxious, depressed or overwhelmed by the other demands of life. Families living in poverty often have less opportunity for the social engagement of their children. Social anxiety disorder can be treated with cognitive behaviour therapy and medication later in life but often only moderately so. It’s the same fear that keep socially anxious people from school and work tend to keep them from therapy as well. A focus on early intervention aimed at prevention is likely to be a much more effective solution than treatment after the fact. The sooner a child is helped, the less likely they are to suffer negative consequences of their anxiety. If you have a toddler or young child who seems to be exhibiting more fear or anxiety than other kids, consider talking with your doctor.
