Flurry of grants sends a message Kathy Michaels email@example.com
A flurry of federal dollars floating down from Ottawa onto projects across the valley heralds one thing—it’s election time. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has yet to reveal his plans for the election launch, but many are speculating an early call is in the works.
“We have heard it could happen as early as this Sunday,” said Stephen Fuhr, Liberal candidate for Kelowna Lake Country. If Harper does drop the writ after this weekend, it will be more than 11 weeks before voting day—making it the longest campaign in Canadian history. “We have no control over

that—it is what it is,” said Fuhr, noting that his intuition tells him that it won’t happen until the third Sunday of this month. “But it’s completely irresponsible. Dropping the writ early benefits Conservatives because they get more.” Last year electoral law was tweaked with the Fair Elections Act. Previously, spending limits

that would allow the city to issue fines for residents using too much water, or using it in a way they weren’t supposed to. The proposed fines begin at $25 for an initial offence during a stage one water restriction, increasing all the way to $400 for a second offence in a stage four restriction, and fines of $500 a day in extreme cases. The bylaw provides the city with a way to police water usage, as without the bylaw there is little they can do as a repercussion to violations other than cutting off the water supply. Council approved the first three readings unanimously, and is expecting to give fourth reading at the Aug.11 council meeting, which would bring the bylaw into effect. Here is the list of ticket offences and fines in the bylaw: Stage 1 Restriction Violation, first offence, $25 Stage 1 Restriction Violation, second offence, $50 Stage 1 Restriction Violation, continuing nature offence, $500/day Stage 2 Restriction Violation, frst offence, $50 Stage 2 Restriction Violation, second offence $100 Stage 2 Restriction Violation, continuing nature offence, $500/day Stage 3 Restriction

The City of Kelowna Water Utility provides water to just over half of the city’s population. Most of the remaining residents receive their water from one of four water irrigation districts.

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson and provincial Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson received a guided tour of Okanagan College’s new trades building Wednesday. Construction on the $33-million project began in June 2014, and it is still on schedule to open to students in the spring of 2016. Once open, the new facility will nearly double OC’s capacity for trades students, allowing for 2,400 students to train at the campus every year. “Well I think today we’ve seen the great progress on this project,” Thomson said after their
tour was done. “It’s a $33-million project, with $28 million contributed by the province, and it’s great to see how far it’s advanced. “We’re really looking forward to its completion. “I think one of the key points here is the community support for this, a big part of this project’s funding is coming directly from businesses and people and leaders within our community, so that just shows how important this is within our community.” The remainder of the funding is being raised by Okanagan College through a campaign that launched in October 2014. The campaign has a goal of raising $5 million for capital construction costs and $2 million for program and student

Liberal says potential early call to the polls a waste of taxpayers’ dollars like we’re going into another recession …if that’s the case, it’s the first time Canada has gone into a recession without the US. The Canadian economy is not good.” Al Horning, a former MP, said the recent wave of federal grant announcements since last Friday is just smart politics. “Everybody does it. Every party will do it,” he said. “And the organizations that receive the grants don’t mind because they need the support.” Horning said he’s not sure if a rush of grants prior to an election translates into votes, but he said it does help the incumbent MP, in this case Conservative Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan. “It does show that your representative is doing something for your constituency by getting grants…that’s what people like to see—their elected representative working for them. I guess if you are a Conservative voter, you are saying, “Right on, Ron, keep it going.’”

Candidates get an additional $2,700 a day to add to their usual limit of approximately $100,000. It’s ultimately going to cost taxpayers more, as well, said Fuhr. It’s been estimated that it will cost millions in extra administrative costs for Elections Canada to work a long campaign in hundreds of ridings across Canada. There’s also the matter of lost tax revenue. Much of what a candidate spends on their campaign comes from donations, which are worth a tax credit of 75 per cent on the first $400, 50 per cent on the next $350 and 33.3 per cent on the next $500. “It’s crazy given the fact that the country is in debt and that people have a hard time paying their bills,” said Fuhr. “We’d be better off spending that tax money on the taxpayer.” “We are in massive debt, and it looks

Local Green/Liberal alliance puts party leader on defensive Kathy Michaels email@example.com
Constituents in Kelowna-Lake Country could still see a political power-sharing pact play out in the upcoming election campaign, despite the leader of the Green Party of Canada’s apparent misgivings. Elizabeth May has made multiple media appearances this week saying that she’s asked local Green candidate Gary Adams to not step down or endorse any other parties just yet. Adams, and Liberal candidate, Fuhr, announced earlier this month that Adams would step down to endorse Fuhr and sign an agreement outlining co-operation between Fuhr and the local Greens for a form of joint representation in
Ottawa. Although May put Adams’s decision on hold, the move hasn’t been quashed. She is expecting to have a conversation with Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair before endorsing it. In a press release from Adams and Dan Ryder, Adams’ campaign manager, May’s words were taken well. “We fully support Elizabeth bringing the result of our local vote into a crucial conversation at the national level. At this level, Thomas Mulcair and Justin Trudeau need to ask themselves which is more important: Gambling every opportunity on a shot at an absolute majority, or beginning

now to engineer a government that works together?,” reads the release. “Do they want to magnify the differences among Greens, Liberals, and NDP, or focus on the differences between us and the Stephen Harper Conservatives? “Our members sent a clear message that the vast gulf that separates all of us from the Harper Conservatives is what matters most to them. We think the majority of Canadians agree.” Fuhr interpreted May’s words, similarly. “We will both respect Elizabeth May and look forward to discussion at the federal level, but once those have happened we’re prepared to move ahead with the agreement in place that was voted on by the members of Kelowna Lake Country.

they run errands, thinking they will be safe for a short period,” she said. “Tragically, in hot weather their pets can suffer serious heatstroke and die in a matter of minutes.” To fully illustrate how quickly temperatures rise in a car, Kelowna RCMP Const. Steve Holmes put a thermometer in a vehicle parked in the shade at Orchard Park mall. As the press conference wore on, the digits on the monitor creeped up to red hot conditions. That temperature reporters were told, could kill a dog as they have no sweat glands, and cool themselves by panting and releasing heat through their paws.

has brought 80 reports. Perfectly underscoring her point, at a Thursday afternoon press conference aimed at further getting out the message about best practices for protecting pets from the elements, Pugh was told that police and her staff were racing to a Kelowna parking lot of a McDonald’s where a dog had been locked in a hot car for 45 minutes. It’s something that clearly frustrates Pugh. In addition to the cruelty of the act, it takes away from the SPCA’s regular role of caring for abandoned and abused animals. That said, the organization is continuing to approach the issue through further education in hopes it will stop the inhumane practice. “Many well meaning guardians leave their pets in parked vehicles when

minutes they can suffer irreparable brain damage. “You shouldn’t have to put on a fur coat and sit in a hot car with the windows rolled up to understand how dangerous it is for your pet to be left there,” said Holmes, who earlier noted the Mounties have already this summer attended 53 hot pet calls. “Leaving your pet at home is the right thing to do if you are shopping. If you must take your pet make sure there is a second person who can stay with your pet in a shaded area.” He added that, generally speaking, the people they find who have made the decision to lock their dog in a steaming hot car aren’t trying to be cruel. They tend to park in shaded areas, assuming that they’re only going to be gone for a harmless minute or two. That said, when caught leaving a dog in a hot car, they’re often put on the receiving end of a harsh critique, as actress Jennifer Beals learned in Vancouver Wednesday morning. Global News showed footage of the actress returning to her Ford Escape during a sunny day in Vancouver. Her dog was in the car and the window was slightly rolled down. A man confronted the actress outside of her vehicle out of concern for the pooch, at which point Beals is heard saying, “In Dunbar it is, it’s fine.” “It is, OK,” the passerby replied before adding, “Just so you know I am reporting this.” Her social media was rife ever since with attacks about irresponsible pet ownership. Offering a gentler alternative, Pugh said the SPCA recommends noting the licence plate of a vehicle and asking managers of nearby businesses to page the owner to return to the vehicle immediately. Those who see pets in cars should call the BC SPCA abuse hotline at 1-855-622-7722. Also, be an advocate. Help spread the word that pets and hot vehicles are a fatal mix.

New Joe Rich fire chief A new fire chief has been appointed by the Regional District of Central Okanagan for the Joe Rich Fire Protection District. Effective immediately, Ben Wasyliuk will take over the chief’s duties for the paid on-call department. Wasyliuk has been a firefighter with the department since 2011, most recently serving as one of its assistant chiefs. The selection committee unanimously recommended his appointment, noting Wasyliuk’s qualifications, dedication and service Ben Wasyliuk to the Joe Rich Fire/ Rescue Department and the respect that he’s garnered among residents in the community and department members. RDCO fire services manager Dan Wildeman says, “With Ben coming from the ranks of the department, there will be continuity in service for the paid-on-call department from those dedicated members who are committed to providing fire protection, fire prevention and medical first response services throughout the community.”

Safety inspections have determined that the equipment no longer meets Canadian Safety Association standards, posing risks to users.

Need for donated blood continues The national blood inventory has steadily declined this summer and needs a boost to continue to meet the needs of patients through the August long weekend and into the coming weeks. Canadian Blood Services is asking people to give blood before and after the long weekend. “Summer is a challenging time for blood collection, when many regular donors are on vacation. This is a great time for new donors to join us and help prevent a further decline in the national inventory,” said Mark Donnison, vice-president of donor relations. “Platelets derived from blood are critical to help stop bleeding and unfortunately expire just five days after a blood donation.” The Canada Safety Council reports that “more fatalities occur on Canadian roads during summer months than any other time of year.” It can take up to 50 donors to help save someone who has been in a motor vehicle accident. Please consider helping us maintain our needed inventory by donating at either of the following clinics in the Kelowna area this long weekend: • Kelowna Clinic, 103-1865 Dilworth Dr. (across from Sears), which is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 3—61 open appointments • West Kelowna clinic at Emmanual Church, 2600 Hebert Rd., which runs from noon to 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 3—42 open appointments To book an appointment to give blood, use the Give Blood App or visit blood.ca. Those with appointments are encouraged to keep their appointment and, if possible, bring a friend or family member to donate with them. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Drought-friendly plants that thrive Although my focus in my home gardens has always been to choose water-wise plants, I find during this unseasonably long spell of dry, hot weather that some plants are thriving while others seem to be gasping for water. For the past 11 years I have gardened in pure sand—very easy to dig but poor in nutrients and no capacity to retain moisture. Even though I have dug-in lots of water retentive organic matter and kept the soil mulched, the soil dries out very rapidly and becomes hydrophobic (repels water). I am a plantaholic. Having a plant nursery for nine years magnified my interest in plant varieties. When I gardened there, in amended clay soil, I could grow so many water-wise plants without supplemental water. When I first moved to this property, I brought my plant friends with me. Sadly, many of my favourites couldn’t survive in dry, sandy soil. I have grown some of them in an area that I water sporadically as needed. This year the need has intensified.
Garding With Nature GWEN STEELE I suspect that the weather we are experiencing is going to be the norm so I am planning to convert all the front and side gardens into plants that thrive in drought. The time has come for hard decisions. Some plant friends are going to need a new home. Today, I took stock of what is thriving with little to no extra water. I may add more of these to replace the plants that need water. Shade garden: The border of giant Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum commutatum) is outstanding. Leathery-leaved Bergenia looks great. Euonymous ‘Emerald Gaiety’ and ‘Green and Gold’ both add brightness with their variegated leaves. Surprisingly, hostas are doing very well (‘Krosse Regal’, ‘Albo-marginata’, ‘Golden Tiara’ and ‘Sum and Substance’).
Good bloom: Russian sage, Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’ (catnip), Oenothera macrocarpa, Scutellaria alpina Good foliage: Santolina, Rue, Yucca ‘Golden Sword’, Okanagan natives rabbit brush and big sagebrush, Artemesias ‘Silver Mound’ and ‘Valerie Finnis.’ You can find details and photos of these and many more waterwise plants on the plant database at okanaganxeriscape.org. For detailed xeriscape information and plant suggestions, I invite you to attend my two-night class Introduction to Xeriscape on Wednesday, Sept. 16 and 23, or Thursday, Oct.1 and 8. Details and registration information are on the OXA website, okanaganxeriscape.org.
They were planted in a compost/sandy soil mixture nine years ago and are kept mulched. The root systems are now welldeveloped. The ground hugging Cotoneaster horizontalis has spread well and layered itself to make new plants. Succulents, tall Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ and ‘Matrona’ and many hen and chick varieties look great. Northern sea oats grass (Chasmanthium latifolium) is a lush bright green. Natives Oregon grape, Saskatoon and snowberry have all self-seeded here. Full sun plants: Herbs: lavender, oregano, thyme, sage, Hyssop officionalis Ornamental grasses: blue fescue, blue oat, blue gramma (Bouteloua gracilis), blue hair (Koeleria glauca)

Knee Arthritis and Knee Injuries Successfully Treated by Shockwave Therapy
hether you are an athlete, in your golden years of retirement, or the typical person on your feet all day at work, you know there’s nothing more debilitating than a knee injury. Knee injuries have many faces and causes and these three groups of people are susceptible to the same injuries but from different causes. Tendon injuries are the most common: Iliotibial band syndrome (pain on the outside of the knee); Patellar tendonitis (pain below the knee); and hamstring injuries (leading to pain in the back of the knee). As well, arthritis plagues many and often results in knee replacement surgery. And unfortunately, many knee surgery patients (due to ligament or cartilage tears) frequent our office.
tendon, binding the knee and often creating soft tissue pain. For the past four years I have been using Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) to treat these conditions, because shockwave therapy breaks down scar tissue and stimulates blood vessel growth to restore muscle function and promote healing. The Journal of Surgical Research 2012 showed ESWT is effective in preventing knee arthritis. In The American Journal Of Sports Medicine 2007, 90% showed significant improvement in patellar tendonitis. Furthermore, The Archives of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery 2007 showed significant reduction in the progression of knee arthritis (ESWT stimulates cells to produce cartilage). Results are often experienced within a couple of visits and the treatment is covered by many insurance companies.
DR. RYAN HARRIS Glenmore Chiropractic
Each of these injuries comes with its own set of obstacles when treating with conventional methods: tendonitis can create fibrous adhesions and scar tissue that disrupts the normal function of the muscle; arthritis erodes the cartilage, decreasing the joint space; and surgery, although often necessary, creates scar tissue on the surrounding muscle and

What a horrible waste of money if the tools were thrown in a dumpster or the bushes. Those tools allowed me to earn a reasonable income and now they’ve been taken from me. One tool case is an old Telus linesman case with the words “The Fletch” written in felt pen on the inside of the lid. The second tool kit has an alligator skin pattern and has spaces for a tool roll and an electronic tuning scope. The scope is a blue Sanderson Accu-Tuner (SAT3) with the name of Bob or Robert Bayley etched on the side. The tuning hammer is made by Watanabe Co. of Japan. If anybody knows the whereabouts of these tools, please leave your contact information at the H2O Centre so that, upon recovery of the tools, I can provide the finder with a generous reward.

Free trade in milk, eggs, even logs? One of the rituals of life in Victoria News southern B.C. is cross-border shopping. TOM Even corner FLETCHER store owners are known to pop down to Washington border towns to load up a van with U.S. milk, taking advantage of a price difference generated by our “supply management” system. The recent slide in the Canadian dollar reduces this pressure in the short term, but the fact remains that dairy producers are propped up in Canada. And that’s increasingly a problem as Canada pursues entry into the Trans Pacific Partnership, the next big trade deal. With the U.S., Japan, Australia, New Zealand and other countries involved, it would form the largest trading bloc in the world. Canada uses tariffs of up to 300 per cent to protect its dairy and poultry industries from foreign imports. The higher domestic price on milk and eggs is a burden that falls most heavily on poor people. The Dairy Farmers of Canada and others argue that reducing or removing Canada’s import protection won’t change the huge farm subsidies

paid by European and U.S. governments. The recent trade agreement between Canada and the European Union has already chipped away at this. The Conservative government is tiptoeing on this issue as a fall election approaches, with rural seats across the country at stake. But the UK, Australia and New Zealand have deregulated their dairy industries and Canada is already facing increased cheese imports due to the EU agreement. It’s an issue to watch as the federal election heats up. The NDP is positioned as a defender of supply management, while the Liberals are committed to keeping up with the U.S. and joining the TransPacific Partnership (TPP). The trend toward freer trade is broad and long. The Harper government ended the monopoly of the Canadian Wheat Board in 2012, and grain growers continue to compete globally. A trade deal with Korea saw tariffs come off Korean import vehicles, and life goes on. Another controlled and protected commodity that is seldom discussed is logs. That’s changed with the push for the TPP, as Japan protests federal and provincial restrictions that push up the cost of logs for export. Ottawa regulates the export of private land logs, but only in B.C. This is a longstanding irritant for private land owners, holding Newsroom: Sean Connor, Warren Henderson, Kathy Michaels, Kevin Parnell, Jean Russell, Alistair Waters Advertising: Tracy Cole, Ron Harding, Teresa Huscroft-Brown, Sheri Jackson, Robert Lindsay, Rick Methot,Christine Mould, Megan Munro, Meghan Toews, Al Tomiak, Kimberley Vico Classified: Michelle Trudeau, Emily Vergnano Production: Nancy Blow, Janice Collier, Shayla Graf, Kiana Haner-Wilk, Fatima Hartmann, Nadine Krahn, Tiffany
the domestic price for premium “J grade” Douglas fir logs below $80 per cubic metre while the price in Asia and Washington state has climbed above $100. The U.S. has long complained about B.C.’s cheap Crown land stumpage and low domestic log prices in general, viewing them as a subsidy to lumber production. Indeed, this whole protection apparatus is designed to stimulate domestic milling, although it doesn’t seem to be working. The main investment by B.C. forest companies recently has been buying southern U.S. sawmills. The coastal industry has maintained that profits from log exports are keeping logging alive, paying for the harvest and processing of logs in B.C. With Pacific trade talks in the background, pushed hard by U.S. President Barack Obama, the latest Canada-U.S. lumber agreement is due to expire in October. It will be more difficult to defend what University of Alberta economist Jack Mintz calls a “Soviet-style approach to price determination.” B.C. used to do something similar to this with wine, protecting a backward industry cranking out mostly god-awful plonk.

Cyclists should improve their skills before riding on roads To the editor: I have found an interesting website, BicycleSafe. com, that cyclists should be made aware of.

Grateful for everything since Stewart Centre fire five years ago To the editor: On July 31, 2010 our Kirschner Road location was destroyed in the Stewart Centre fire. As we approach the five-year mark it is important that we express our gratitude to the many that supported us during this time. Immediately after the fire, we were flooded with gratitude that we were all safe, healthy and had a warm, dry place to go home to. And in the days that followed we would return home after the chaos of trying to rebuild and find gratitude in remembering that everything that matters was still there. We drew strength from each other, as it was in these moments that we learned that Pro Source Irrigation is so much more than its walls. We want to express gratitude to our valued customers who continue to support us year after year. Without you, [our business] would not have been able to rebuild. It is because of you that we
Photo-op grim reality check To the editor: I’m writing to thank Kelowna Capital News journalist Kathy Michaels for her excellent column Photo Ops Won’t Prevent Next Fire, Flood, Earthquake…, July 24 edition. I’ve responded to the B.C. climate change survey, as her column suggested, but I would encourage anyone who expects to be alive in 2050 to take the survey as well. Certainly, few, if any, of the MLAs in today’s government will be around in 2050 to take responsibility if the goals to reduce carbon emissions by 33 per cent below 2007 levels miss the mark.
The front-page photo of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, MP Ron Cannan, and Premier Christy Clark, is more of a grim reality-check than the usual smiling photo-op for Canada’s Economic Action Plan—a plan which has generously benefited Kelowna because it elected a Conservative MP. The year 2050 seems too distant to be labeled an action plan by anyone but a turtle. That might explain the hands-folded stoic expression in the front-page photo. Helen Schiele, Kelowna
always strive to be better than we were yesterday. We want to express gratitude to our staff, many of who were there before, during and after the fire. Your work ethic, dedication and smiling faces represent everything that Pro Source stands for; your perseverance will never be forgotten. We are grateful for the continued opportunity to be able to establish a connection with everyone who walks through our door, as we have seen the value in the sustenance and strength of these relationships. Saying “thank you” seems like too simple an act; however, as we express our gratitude, we will never forget that it is not to solely speak these words but to live by them every day.

Weak-kneed To the editor: While looking ahead to the federal election I find our choice of politicians weak-kneed. Which political party will lead this country to a place of respect among the nations? Which party has the guts to change statutes that would help us Canadians achieve what our forefathers died for—freedom, health care and safety for all Canadians? Let’s do away with bilingualism—its antiquated form helps no one. Do away with the Senate and all the huge pensions given for patronage. Just these two items would put a lot more taxpayers’ dollars toward better uses. I encourage everyone to start writing to their politicians the priority of health care and safety.

Conservative/Republican To the editor: First let me confess that I helped elect Kim Campbell (Progressive Conservative) as Prime Minister at the national convention in Ottawa as a delegate many years ago and also helped elect Steven Harper (Conservative) eight years ago in a much reduced role. Incidentally, I see quite a difference between the old Progressive Conservatives and the current Conservatives. At that time Harper had no more experience than Justin Trudeau who the Conservatives continue to suggest is “Not Ready.” But we needed a change then as we do now. I originally started voting Conservative in my early years following my mother’s influence who was Conservative, versus my father’s liberalism as I liked her much better
than my father. It may sound trivial but we all start down a certain political path and in most cases it is probably a reflection of our households when we are in formative years. Today as a retired vice-president of one of Canada’s largest financial institutions, spending half the year in the USA, I see so many unfortunate comparisons to the Republicans in the US which scares me for our future. The shift of our judges through tampering with the selections process is the last straw. I trust many of you will get out and vote to effect some much needed change in our direction for this country.

Four people had signed on as a team for a paddleboarding fundraiser in support of BrainTrust Canada, set to take place Sunday, Aug. 9, at Rotary Beach in Kelowna. But the purpose behind BrainTrust Canada, to educate and fund research about brain injury prevention and recovery, hit home when one of the newspaper’s production staff, Janice Collier, was hit by a vehicle while on a crosswalk in Vernon on July 11. Collier suffered severe injuries to her knee, pelvis and ankle along with head trauma that caused swelling in her brain. The vehicle, a Jeep Liberty, was driven by a 92-year-old male who, after colliding with Collier, then sheared off a light standard before coming to a stop. “It was a pretty sombre Monday morning to come looking to get support to paddle to raise money for brain injury prevention only to find one of our colleagues fighting for her life with a severe brain injury,” said Rob Lindsay, a Capital News advertising rep. “It brought home to
us the importance of what BrainTrust Canada does. The accident was a random thing for someone to get hit on a crosswalk, but it sure made what we were doing, to raise money for BrainTrust, seem a lot more important. “It’s not just a paddle board race for charity anymore. It will have a deeper meaning for all of us.” As a result, the Capital News team representation has increased as well with two four-person teams now entered in the event: The Capital News Cruisers—Rob Lindsay, Kevin Parnell, Al Tomiak and Nancy Blow; and SUPDawgz—Christine Mould, Megan Munro, ReMax realtor Tamara Terlesky and Christy Phillips. The fundraising goal is for each team to raise $1,000, which will work out to $250 a paddler. The overall goal of BrainTrust for the event is to raise $50,000. To make a donation to either team, go to www. paddleforprevention. myevent.com/ participant/209108. Lindsay said he first started paddle boarding in 2011 when the sport was relatively new on the scene. He had a lot of questions about the finer

points of the sport and nowhere to find answers, so he took a certified instructor’s course through Paddle Canada. “I never really wanted to be an instructor. I just wanted to be able to give good information to people with the same questions I had,” said Lindsay. Now one of the fastest recreational sports activities in the world, paddle boarding’s roots date back thousands of years. It’s popularity in the modern era tends to come from Hawaii, where in the 1940s surf instructors in Waikiki would take paddles and stand on their surf boards to get a better view of the surfers in the water and incoming swells. Lindsay said paddle boarding is a very accessible activity for people of all ages, which is why he encourages anyone interested to take part in the fun race planned for the BrainTrust fundraiser, regardless of whether you have ever stood up on a paddle board. The event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. with a Moksha Yoga warmup, followed by individual and team relays from 9 a.m. to noon. There will be a barbecue put on for participants from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. by sponsors Costco and the Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club. There will also be other fun family “Twoonie Activities,” face painting and a bouncy house for the kids. For more about this event or brain injury, check out the website braintrustcanada. com.

Power of collaboration creates business world that works I would like to think that even as the years unfold, I never stop learning and embracing new thoughts and experiences. In the more than two years I have been writing this column with the entrepreneurial spirit at the forefront of my focus, I continue to be awed by the abundance of genuine leaders I’ve had the privilege of befriending both in business and social settings within the Okanagan Valley. And I think how joyous the valley environment would find itself, not only in entrepreneurial pursuit and stimulating its entrepreneurial culture but in all aspects of human life, if we grasped with all our hearts and minds the power of collaboration as an added ingredient in our leadership education. At the most fundamental level, collaboration comes from a Latin root that roughly means to work with, but there is more to it than that. People at truly collaborative organizations are empowered and engaged—they colabour successfully, reach agreement, resolve differences, produce great products and meet customer and community needs in ways that may well be the envy of their industry, organization, and regional landscape. Collaborative leadership is at the centre of an important shift in our business world, which is moving away from autocratic leadership to more decentralized models which significantly create a new paradigm. For many, the shift from command and control raises a continuing dilemma: How do you get things done and drive an organization forward when you’re forced to coax and convince? I’m told by some very reputed leadership consultants the distinction lies at the heart of the
Entrepreneurial Spirit JOEL YOUNG answer: Collaboration is an essential tool for the new kind of entrepreneurial venture leader, the facilitative leader, one who engages relevant stakeholders in solving problems collaboratively and works to build a more collaborative culture in his or her community or organization. The facilitative leader makes conscious choices about how much collaboration is appropriate for each decision and delegates accordingly. This leader is able to get more out of their organization, while staying on track and driving the intended strategy forward. They are able to devise and articulate a vision of triple-bottom-line value that inspires and
motivates internal and external stakeholders alike. As companies and organizations are urged to move to more agile, collaborative models, so too have they begun involving a variety of internal and external stakeholder in their overall strategies. The folks at the helmo of many forward-thinking organizations are taking into account how they affect the environment, their communities and employees. When leaders use collaboration to plan, gain alignment and execute skillfully, they create value for all stakeholders within their sphere of influence. Our Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society, for example, has recently completed an outstanding collaborative leadership process through the creation of a non-profit entrepreneurial corporate structure of close to 28 people led by a board of a founding chair, a chair and seven
vice-chairs with a plethora of committees under each vice-chair. And our team accomplished this with little pain and much joy thanks to the collaborative leadership of each member of the team. A sense of direction comes from a clear understanding of the strategic moment faced by the organization itself. What is the gap between where the company or organization is and where it aspires to be? What’s required to bridge that gap? Who could be involved in bridging that gap? After establishing a sense of direction, one must focus on practices that invite enrollment in the change and commitment to its success. Collaborative organizations build their capacity and capability in working effectively together unselfishly and with a common sense of community purpose. No individual organizational nor
scorecard is absolutely necessary. What fun we could have with unbelievable outcomes if we operated in a constant cycle of sharing information, clarifying understanding, reaching agreements and implementing decisions.
All of us, in our individual and joint efforts, can tap the creativity in our minds and, combined with the power of collaboration —to invent something totally original. We can leap into the void, exercise belief in our
visions together, learn to trust each other and effectively engaging the relevant stakeholders, remain unafraid of the unknown. Joel Young is founder of Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society. firstname.lastname@example.org

Judie Steeves Contributor
Automatic irrigation systems are a real timesaver for those with property to maintain. But they can’t be just ignored after they’ve been installed as regular monitoring is especially important under this year’s drought conditions, according to the experts. Components wear out, become damaged, get nudged out of position and the system itself should be set up to respond to seasonal and weather changes. Automated irrigation systems need a little guidance and monitoring to ensure they’re not wasting water. In fact, it would be wise to do a check on the system once a month, suggests Bruce Naka, a

A rule of thumb is lawns need just over an inch of water a week (Contact your local water utility for a Make Water Work watermeasuring Frisbee, or put out a tin can, to measure how much it gets now.) However, Naka points out it’s important to know what type of soil your lawn is in. It would need less if it’s in a clay soil base, and more if in sand or gravel. “Lawn will come back. Many trees and shrubs won’t. So, to use the water you have most efficiently, concentrate on the shrubs and let the lawn go,” he advises. Conserve water by

The first thing to look for is spots in your landscape that are either too wet or too dry after the system has been on. In particular, he suggests you make sure it’s not watering concrete, asphalt or siding. In some cases, a sprinkler head just needs to be adjusted, but in others, it could be worn out and need replacing. “You can save money and conserve water by ensuring your system is working right,” he says. Under drought conditions such as the Okanagan is experiencing this year, you may wish to turn off the zones that

He also recommends training your plants to be drought-tolerant by not providing them with more than the minimum amount of water they need to survive. That way, they will grow deep roots and be healthier overall. If you’re looking at installing an automatic irrigation system, he recommends you look for a certified contractor. Go to the IIABC website for a list at irrigationbc.com Ask your installer about high efficiency nozzles and you ensure you are familiar with the controller and that you can program it before the contractor is finished. They should also provide you with a drawing of the system, including where all the valves are, so you can shut them off, if necessary. If purchasing a home, ask for a map of the system showing where the valves and sprinkler heads are. Most systems now have rain sensors which can

Kelowna veterinarian Dr. JasonÂ Rowan and his assistant HannahÂ Sharpe take blood to test the senior cocker spanielâ€™s immunity levels.
Titre tests prove viable alternative to vaccinations A veterinarian at the Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital in Kelowna is providing an alternative for pet parents who donâ€™t want to routinely vaccinate their cats and dogs. Dr. Jason Rowan said with the vaccine debate raging in human medicine, those sentiments are beginning to filter out to pet owners who donâ€™t want to subject their cat or dog to routine needle vaccinations every year. â€œIf you donâ€™t need to stimulate an animalâ€™s immune system with an invasive vaccine, why do it?â€? said Rowan. â€œIâ€™m not anti-vaccine. Some diseases have severe consequences and we need to protect pets from them. â€œBut not every pet needs every vaccine available, and often those immunizations last a lot longer than what is on the bottle.â€? At his veterinary clinic, Dr. Rowan plans custom vaccine schedules for every patient, spaces out vaccines, and provides affordable titre testing. â€œWith titre testing, we can measure an adult cat or dogâ€™s actual immunity, and decide if they actually need a booster or not,â€? he explained. â€œWe can avoid over-vaccination and still ensure our pets are protected. I recommend titre testing before vaccination for all my adult patients.â€? To test a petâ€™s immunity to a certain disease, the veterinarian takes blood and measures the antibodyÂ levels, or titres, in the blood sample. If the titre test is positive, the animal is protected against the disease and doesnâ€™t need a vaccine booster. According to the Journal of Integrative Veterinary Care, Rowan points out there is excellent correlation between the presence of the antibodies and protective immunity. Through a partnership with Kansas State University, Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital is now able to offer dog and cat titre tests even more affordably. â€œWe test dogs for parvovirus, distemper and adenovirus at our lab in-house, so it takes only a day and has always been inexpensive,â€? Rowan said. â€œHowever, our partnership with KSU now enables us to offer rabies and cat titres at half the price we used to charge.â€?

IN THE LOOP
The Slocan Ramblers bring their mix of bluegrass and mountain music to Kelowna for a concert Aug. 12. for a one-off gig in 2010, and the chemistry worked so well that they got themselves a house gig at Toronto’s Cloak and Dagger and started refining their sound. They debuted on CD in 2012 with Shaking Down the Acorns, which then led to the band being named Best New Artist at the 2013 Toronto Jazz Festival. Although it’s a house concert series, it’s open to the public, and people can reserve seats online at http://www. sneddenhouseconcerts. com/.

The Slocan Ramblers are the hot new thing on the bluegrass and old time scene these days. The Kelowna show starts at 7:30 (there’s a potluck at 6:30 that people can participate in) and admission is by donation (suggested $20) “Every few years a new generation of bluegrass players seems to be spawned from the hipster streets of Toronto. Enter the Slocan Ramblers…” said a review in Penguin Eggs Magazine Add Toronto’s Slocan Ramblers to the list of bands taking a pass on polished pop production values and embracing the unvarnished authenticity of old-time mountain music and bluegrass – while showcasing their own worldly influences. Praised everywhere from Hockey Night in Canada to the pages of Sing Out magazine for their debut effort Shaking Down the Acorns, and having already opened for comedian Steve Martin and been featured in a TV series alongside the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Slocan Ramblers just released their new album Coffee Creek earlier this month. All one-time students of the Humber College music program, The Slocan Ramblers – who are named for a historic mine in B.C.’s Slocan Valley— count among their influences lesser-known bluegrass great Dave Evans and celebrated player Norman Blake. They came together
Opera Kelowna will kick off its Summer Opera Series outside under the stars at the UBC Okanagan campus on Aug. 2. favourites such as the “The Flower Duet,” “The Pearl Fisher’s Duet,” O Mio Babbino Caro, and
excerpts from “The Marriage of Figaro,” which will be performed fully staged and
orchestrated during the “Summer Opera Series” on Aug. 14 and 15 at the Mary Irwin Theatre. Dr. Kinza Tyrrell, Vancouver Opera’s top vocal coach, will accompany the singers and Scottish conductor Bernard McDonald will bring his point of view. “The Okanagan is fast becoming the summer destination for music and art lovers,” said Opera Kelowna’s artistic director, Alexandra Babbel. “We’re very excited to present this extraordinary concert at the university and invite the community —be they residents of the Okanagan or visitors to our region—to be part of a very special evening.” Babbel will co-host the evening together with UBC’s deputy vicechancellor and principal Deborah Buzzard. Imagine a bit of Mozart cascading across the lawn under the evening sky while you enjoy a glass of wine and delicious food with guests. Bring your picnic wares, blankets, pillows and create your very own romantic evening under the stars. The concert is free for those wishing to enjoy listening on the lawn. Preregistration for seating within the licensed area is required online. Attendees can also order preferred seating,
plus food and wine options. Win prizes for expressing your chic Okanagan style including special UBC Centennial paraphernalia. Sponsors and community partners for the evening and sponsors of the “Summer Opera Series” include UBC Centennial Fund, Argus Properties Ltd., Four Points by Sheraton Kelowna Airport, The Hotel Eldorado, Harmony Acura, Springfield Funeral Homes, 50th Parallel Estate Winery, Okanagan Spirits, Artist Charla Maarschalk, Orah Spa + Salon, Bliss Bridal Boutique and Michelle Henseleit of The Well Dressed Window.

Fernando’s Pub. The band, led by Kelowna local Mike Turner, is making Kelowna their first stop on their Western Canadian tour to promote their debut, selftitled EP. “We’re excited to have the chance to bring our music to more people on this tour” said Turner. “We’ve found a fresh and unique sound. So far people have responded well to it, so we’re definitely stoked to share it in some of the finest venues in Western Canada” The outfit will also be playing during the day on Aug. 8 as part of the Kelowna Block Party. Ripple Illusion is a fresh take on a retro sound, mixing together musical influences from a variety of different eras.

The Artist’s Garden Project featured at art gallery
Even if gardens are not your cup of tea, when you come to visit the current artist’s garden project at the Kelowna Art Gallery, you will doubtless agree on who would love this year’s commission—good old Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street. This garden is urban, grungy, and full of trash! Vernon-based motherand-son team Carolina Sanchez de Bustamante and Maxwell Sterry wanted to focus on the issue of the environment for their year-long garden installation, and to subtly draw our attention to the volume of materials that are dumped daily into the landfill. Animating the art gallery’s open-air Rotary Courtyard space are three tall columns, delineated with strands of fishing line and strung up with brightly-coloured spheres made from clean trash. These bits of junk have been painted in red, orange or yellow, and then grouped by colour. At the base of each column trash has been piled up and spray painted as well, and viewers come to notice the trash has been sorted, so that the shortest column (red) has rubber and computer trash, the middle one (orange) has metals, and the tallest one (yellow) has plastic. When the breeze moves through the space a gentle and pleasant pinging sound is
West Nile virus risk rises with the heat
On View LIZ WYLIE produced by the trash bits knocking together. On the sides of the space the artists have planted plastic bins that have been sprayed with yellow, orange and red in a graffiti-like style with fruit- and vegetablebearing plants. The bins are selfirrigating so require minimal watering. Rustic seating consisting of pieces of wood spanning the gap between plastic bins completes the roughand-ready look of the installation. This is the third incarnation of the Kelowna Art Gallery’s Artist’s Garden Project. Each commission extends for a year in duration, from one spring season planting time to the next. Every project is accompanied and documented by a web-based publication available on the art gallery’s website. Humans have expressed their personal and cultural values through gardens for millennia. This aspect of the history of garden design—how a garden embodies and reflects the philosophies and metaphysics of its time

lumbar support, lights, leather seatsupport fog lights ing surfaces, a power sunroof, and LED signature daytime running lights. While it might not be everyone’s first choice in colour, the Jetta diesel’s Toffee Brown Metallic looks like a cold glass of root beer on wheels. Yum. I found it to be refreshing and different. As for the ride and handling, this Jetta does not disappoint. One of my favourite features – aside from the 150 horsepower and 236 horsepower from its 2.0L, turbo engine – is how it handles. The steering weight gives enough feedback to the driver to make tight turns engaging. And when paired with the DSG transmission, not only is city traffic more manageable, but less work for your left leg! If you find yourself towing a lot, or even wanting to go off the straight and narrow, consider the 2015 VW Touareg TDI. With ample room for five inside, this SUV comes with all the right touches. The refreshed interior design and styling is highly appealing to those who want a posh truck, without paying the equivalent price of its familiar equivalents: the Porsche Cayenne Diesel or the Audi Q7 TDI. The Touareg’s starting MSRP comes in at $55,275 and goes from there.
The Execline is the top-of-the-line trim and starts at $69,575. Okay, that’s a decent amount of coin, and it’s not for everyone, but all trims of Touareg come with the same great 3.0L, turbocharged, V6 engine offering 240 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. This engine is then linked with an eightspeed automatic transmission. The panoramic sunroof lets in a copious amount of daylight onto the Terracotta Brown Vienna Leather seats and into the cabin. A strong point of VWs as long as I can remember is how its cabin says so much with saying so little. For example: the centre stack. The perfect combination of buttons and touchscreen make the infotainment so easy to use and one that is not hard to navigate. Then there’s the fuel economy. In the city, it uses an estimated 12.0L/100km in the city and 8.1L/100km on the highway. Not bad for a vehicle that weighs in at 2,130 kg and has allwheel drive. There are a couple more TDI options for you, too. There’s the larger Passat sedan and then there’s the funky Beetle. Visit www.vw.ca for more information. Alexandra.firstname.lastname@example.org

control. Canadian fuel consumption numbers were still being calculated at this writing. With the manual, there is automatic rev matching that makes for smoother, faster shifts. The automatic can be shifted normally or with paddles on the steering wheel. Along with its already low centre of gravity, there was a complete retuning of the suspension including aluminum and high-strength steel to keep the weight down—all augmenting the sharp handling on the JCW. In fact, the new JCW weighs about the same as the outgoing model. You might think that in designing the all-new JCW that MINI would start with the engine, but not so. The first order of business was the brakes, with Brembo supplying JCW-specific 330 mm rotors up front with four-piston fixed calipers for outstanding stopping power. In real life they are massive, fully filling out the standard 17-inch alloy wheels and even the optional 18-inchers. Second on the list was the exhaust system which was designed to scavenge spent gases but also tuned for a rich tone which can be enjoyed with the automatic
rev matching for a nice, little burble. Electronic driver assistance features include Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) as standard, but capable of
being fully disconnected if required. It incorporates Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Electronic Differential Lock Control (EDLC) and Performance Control to improve stability at any speed. Optional is Variable Damper Control that changes the level of oil used in the shocks to reduce body roll and directional stability. You would not think that what is essentially a box with four wheels could be aerodynamic, but the JCW will surprise you. If you look directly at the nose, the whole thing is rounded for the smoothest possible airflow. On the lower sill, the driver-side outside air intake is functional, but the passenger-side intake is covered to route air around the fenders. At the top of each wheel well surround there is a little protruding lip that deflects air up and back, not into the wheel arch, thus creating drag. The rear apron with flaps and diffuser quells drag, while the spoiler up top reduces rear lift by 30 per cent—which is a lot. Inside, the piano black with red accent interior boasts all-new JCW sport buckets

Hyundai hits the mark with redesigned Tucson HALFMOON BAY, B.C.: It’s the right vehicle at the right price at the right time. That’s what a Hyundai Canada product manager kept emphasizing here on BC’s Sunshine Coast at the Canadian media launch of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson crossover SUV. Now available at dealers nationwide, the new Tucson is aimed at the “sweet spot” in the compact CUV/ SUV market, ready to challenge the Ford Escapes, Toyota RAV4s and Honda CR-Vs of the world. This is a section of the automotive market that has been growing by leaps and bounds. Instead of sedans and hatchbacks, buyers are now gravitating to CUV/ SUVs, so much so that one in three vehicles now sold in Canada fits into this area. In order to meet this perceived area of growth, Hyundai has completely redesigned and re-engineered the Tucson, its smallest crossover SUV, for 2016. The new Tucson is longer, wider and more spacious inside than before, factors that Hyundai hopes will resonate with buyers. It’s also perhaps the most stylish offering in the segment, something that should help get it noticed in a crowded marketplace that includes perennial best-sellers like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan.
When you combine sales of the Tucson and the Santa Fe Sport, Hyundai already sits third overall in segment. With this updated model, Hyundai hopes and expects to move further up the ladder. Once known as simply a manufacturer of inexpensive vehicles, the Hyundai of today brings cars and SUVs to the market that are among the best in the industry on the quality front. In fact, Hyundai as a brand ranked fourth in the J.D. Power 2015 Initial Quality Study. Consumers will also find that this Tucson has features that just a few years ago were available only on high-end luxury vehicles. For example, a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats—both welcome here in the Great White North—are available on some models. Rearview cameras are standard throughout the lineup, while a dual level cargo floor, proximity power liftgate and ventilated front
Hyundai Tucson 2016. seats are options not normally found in this class. Prices start at $24,399 for the FWD base model, escalating to $39,599 for the Tucson Ultimate AWD model. Two four-cylinder engines are available on the new Tucson. There is a carryover 164 hp 2.0-litre engine mated with a six-speed automatic along with a new 175 hp 1.6-litre turbo that comes with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT). The 2.0-litre is available with FWD or AWD, while the 1.6-litre Turbo is only offered with AWD. Drivers can select their own driving experience by choosing from Eco, Normal and Sport.
In the morning session, we got to sample the 1.6T in Limited AWD trim ($36,649). All 1.6T models get huge 19-inch alloy wheels and we found the ride a little less forgiving over potholes than with the 2.0-litre AWD model and its 17-inch wheels that we selected for the afternoon run. But that’s not to say the ride is poor by any means. Hyundai engineers have stiffened up the new chassis with much more high strength steel, resulting in a 48 per cent improvement in body rigidity over the previous model. Through the expanded application of structural adhesives and with a re-en-
gineered suspension, the ride and handling are much improved this time around. There was barely a straight stretch of road on our drive route as we meandered along the coastline of this beautiful area north of Vancouver. On all accounts, the Tucson performed well, although we really didn’t get to test its AWD capabilities. The new 1.6T offers decent
acceleration with a hint of turbo lag, but the bulk of sales are expected to be with the 2.0L models. Braking is also strong as Hyundai says the vehicle comes to a stop from 96 km/h in 39.7 metres, better than the competition. But one of the keys to success of the new Tucson will be its styling. From the hexagonal grille to its sculpted lines and LED running lights and taillights, this is very much a modern, up-to-date look that sets new standards in the segment. The new body is also more aerodynamic with the coefficient of drag reduced from 0.35 to 0.33. The cabin, too, has a premium look and feel, although hard plastic is still in evidence. That said, the seats are comfortable and supportive and the second row has more available legroom than before. The dash is well designed with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment screen. Cargo capacity is 877 litres behind the second row seats. This is also a quiet place as wind and road noise have
been reduced considerably through greater use of insulation and noise dampening materials. A gigantic panoramic sunroof is available, but the neatest feature is the power liftgate that pops up automatically if you stand behind the vehicle with the key fob in your pocket. We can see this being a popular feature for moms, trying to juggle groceries and toddlers in busy grocery store parking lots. Overall, the 2016 Tucson is a much-improved offering over the outgoing model. What’s Best: Styling — this may be the best-looking vehicle in the segment. What’s Worst: The new Tucson does a lot of things well, but style trumps performance on this version. What’s interesting: The 2016 Tucson is loaded with features, some standard and some optional, that a few years ago were only available on high-end sedans.

with everything focused on new JCW-exclusive instruments including a dark dial speedo that is easier to see. A now integral part of the MINI handling syllabus is MINI Driving Modes selected by a rotary switch aft of the shifter. The modes are Sport, Mid and Green, each of which describes the response the driver can choose from the engine/transmission. In the real world, you can feel a big difference especially at highway speeds, where there is a noticeable sensation of more power available, particularly when switching from Green. The standard sports suspension (regular available as an option), the wide stance, short wheelbase and low centre of gravity results in a car that sits “four square” with the nexus of the wheels crossing between 3the front seats.
This really lets the driver know where the wheels are, so he/she can get on with the job of enjoying all the JCW has to offer. During the press launch in and around New Haven, CT, part of the exercise was a truly tight autocross with cones snaking around a parking lot with a lane not much wider than the JCW itself. I never got close to uncorking all the handling prowess of the car, but
I know, from decades of experience, the JCW is just about as good as it gets in the technical driving department. I drove the manual most of the time because I just love the way MINI clutches are so light, yet positive in the way the driver can modulate pedal take-up. But the numbers all say the Steptronic is quicker and it felt like it, too, with a sweet growl from the engine with the gas to the stops.
Pricing for the 2016 MINI JCW Hatchback (it’s called the Hardtop in the States) starts for $33,240, but after that, the list of extras and options is extensive. People think of the MINI as a great little urban car and it’s true, the JCW is a much different creature all together. Yes, it’s good around town; but when you really want to go out and revel in its performance side, the MINI John Cooper Works is simply great. What’s Best: Mind popping handling and solid straightline acceleration. What’s Worst: Meager rear seating, but who cares? What’s Interesting: How MINI made what is essentially a box so aerodynamically efficient. Jim Robinson is an automotive reporter for Metroland Media. Wheels.ca

Sports JUNIOR PANAM GAMES
The Okanagan’s track and field community will be taking a keen interest in the proceedings this weekend at Foote Field in Edmonton. Kelowna athletes John Gay and Aaron Stroda will both be competing for their country for the first time at the Pan Am Junior Athletics Championships—one on the track and one in the field. On Sunday, Gay, 18, will line up for the 3,000 metre steeplechase, while Stroda, 19, competes in the hammer throw. Gay, who qualified for the games by winning silver at the junior nationals earlier this month in Edmonton, is thrilled to be making his
international debut for Canada. “It’s a huge honour to be competing for Canada,” said Gay, a member of the Okanagan Athletics Club. “I feel like I’ve been blessed with a national team appointment, more than anything I’m eager to compete at this level. “Hopefully it will be the first of many national teams for me.” Stroda, meanwhile, is the No. 1-ranked junior hammer thrower in Canada, having won gold earlier this summer at the nationals in Edmonton. At the Pan Am junior level, Stroda said he will go in to the competition ranked between sixth and eighth. And while stepping on to the podium is the obvious goal, simply

Spending his summer in the Okanagan turned to be a pretty good decision for Justin Flores. For the West Coast League’s Kelowna Falcons, the feeling is mutual. Flores, a junior from Fresno, CA, set a new team record for RBIs and tied the club high for home runs in the Falcons’ win Wednesday night over the Wenatchee Apple Sox. In addition, the 12-8 victory tied a Falcons’ franchise record for wins in a season (28), equalling the standard set during the 2012 campaign. Flores finished the night with three RBIs against the Apple Sox to push his season total to a team record 36. He also smashed a tworun home run, his seventh of the summer, to equal the club high for roundtrippers in one WCL season. “It was just a great night for the offensive part, I beat the franchise record for RBIs but I

race.” For both athletes, this season marks their last at the junior level as both move into the more competitive senior ranks next year. Stroda sees the Pan Am junior as another stepping stone to what he hopes will be a long and prosperous run as an internationally competitive hammer thrower. “The senior level will be tough, so I’ll be building and growing for the next few years,” said Stroda, who is coached by Derek Evely in Kamloops. “Some throwers don’t reach their prime until their 30s so I have a lot of time to develop and learn. I’m still enjoying it every time I do it, so I plan to stick with it.” While this will be Stroda’s final major competition of the season, Gay will be in Fort McMurray, AB next month competing for Team B.C. at the Western Canada Summer Games.

The Falcons were looking to set the new club record for victories on Thursday night as they closed out a three-game
series with the Apple Sox at Elks Stadium. Falcons GM Mark Nonis said every aspect of the 2015 season has been a pleasant surprise. “(The record) just shows how good this team is, the synergy the
guys have with each other,” Nonis said. “(Coach) Bill (Clontz) has done a great job in leading the team and bringing them together. “The talent is exceptional, the guy have stepped up, they’re
exciting to watch… it’s been better than expected.” As far as tying the franchise record for victories, Flores said the Falcons’ players owed it to the fans who have been so supportive all season long. “The fans have been awesome to us, and we got the win for the fans,” Flores added. “It’s just a great team…I wouldn’t ask for a better team to be a part of. It’s a great team win, and I love being here for Kelowna, I love playing for Kelowna as well.” The Falcons will be on the road this weekend when they visit the Bellingham Bells for three games. The two teams are currently battling for the second best record in the WCL and will likely meet in the first round of the post-season. Kelowna, which is closing in on the East Division title, will return home next Tuesday when they host the Corvallis Knights in the first of a three-game set. First pitch is 6:35 p.m. @capnewsports.ca

A’s battle Kelowna-based softball camp biggest yet Twins today in championship opener BEYOND THE WHITE LINES
A pair of Pan American Games champions will headline the roster of instructors at the 2015 edition of the Beyond the White Lines Softball Camp in Kelowna. Camp founder and director Joni Frei will be joined at the fourth annual camp by nearly 20 qualified mentors, including pitcher Jocelyn Cater and shortstop Jenn Salling, both of whom were part of Team Canada’s gold medal winning effort in women’s softball last week in Toronto. “This is the biggest group of coaches we’ve had yet,” said Frei, “we also have the coaches from Auburn and Alabama State, so we’re loaded with great instructors.” The camp, which runs from Aug. 3 to 8 at King Stadium and the Kelowna Curling Club, will feature the highest enrolment yet of 90 young women

Frei, a Kelowna native who played and coach university softball in Georgia for 12 years, said camp participants will get the full gamut of instruction, tips and advice over the course of the six-day session. “The days will all include skills and drills, strategies and concepts, all-star games, competitions…pretty
close to 40 hours of softball during the week,” said Frei, who has added a new component to this year’s camp. “We’re also going to have an umpire from Softball B.C. come in for a segment on rules, and how knowing the rules can make you a better player. We realized that component can be very valuable to players.” In addition to segment with a sports psychologist, the camp
will also feature a session on recruiting, where coaches will discuss what schools are looking for in an athlete and student when evaluating potential talent for their college and university programs. The camp once again will include a tryout for the Canada Futures team. Each year, Frei takes the best young players in the region—aged 14 to 18— to a college showcase event in the U.S., this fall being held Sept. 30
to Oct. 6 in Georgia and Alabama. Frei said each year the camp wouldn’t be possible without the assistance and cooperation of many in the community, including Kelowna Curling Club manager Jock Tyre, Kelowna Falcons GM Mark Nonis, Okanagan College coach Geoff White and Kyle Blanleil of the Kelowna Men’s Fastball Association. With the numbers growing each year—from 65 players in 2012 to 90 today—Frei feels like the camp is having a genuine impact on female players in Western Canada. “We have players who have been at our camp in the past, have gone off to play in college and now they come back and work at our camps,” said Frei. “A lot of them are former players of mine, so that’s pretty cool to see.” For more on the camp or the Canada Futures program, visit www. beyondthewhitelines.ca.
The Okanagan Athletics will take on the North Shore Twins today in Victoria in the opening game of the B.C. Premier Baseball League’s championship tournament. The A’s will play twice more on Saturday in the four-team round robin, taking on the Nanaimo Pirates and Victoria Eagles. The top team will advance to Sunday’s final, while the second and third place teams will meet in the semifinal. As the lowest finisher (fifth place) of all the teams at the championship, the Athletics could be considered the underdogs. But with a brief format and as few
as four games to play, A’s coach Evan Bailey said the PBL title is anyone’s for the taking. “All a team needs to do is get hot for a threeday span,” said Bailey. “Our boys are basically as good as any team there. We’re not easy to beat and neither are the other those other teams. I think anybody could win it.” Okanagan is coming off an upset of the Langley Blaze in the opening round of the playoffs last weekend. After losing the opener in the best of three, the A’s bounced back with back-to-back shutouts on pitching gems from Matt Brodt and Easton Forrest. The A’s finished the regular season with 24-20 record.

performance, Saturday, received even a louder and longer standing salute from the jam packed audience. Why am I not surprised? A significant contribution to my confidence in the project is that the two creators of this masterpiece are both multiple award winning musicians and song writers, and have both dazzled audiences with their on-stage theatrical skills in the past. However, after four years of hard work writing every song and story line in this theatrical wizardry it is nice to see such insatiable drive for artistic excellence come to true fruition. Pat Brown and Randall Robinson have every reason to be ecstatic with pride. Raft Of The Medusa is an original score based on the diary of one of the survivors of the greatest marine disaster ever until the Titanic. The French frigate Medusa ran aground off the coast of Africa and more than 150 passengers were placed on a makeshift raft. When discovered 14 days later only 15 were alive with just 10 eventually surviving the ordeal. The tragedy inspired artist Theodore Gericault to paint his famous painting Raft Of The Medusa which hangs in the Louvre today. During the painting of the masterpiece it is
suggested Gericault went mad. A dark tale, at times extremely intense, the play also magically sprinkles in some relief humor and a compelling love story as part of the emotional roller-coaster creation. The 22-stage performers and gifted seven-piece rock band in the music pit nailed off tune after tune during the two-hour show, and for an opening night, premier performance, did so with almost flawless precision. Brilliantly written, the choreography and simple yet effective stage sets enhanced what was already a stupendous script and kept the audience spellbound throughout most of the night. Robinson and Brown tastefully weave the fear and anxiety of those on board the raft set adrift at sea into a seamless parallel with the fear and anxiety of artist Gericault and his beautiful client whose portrait he is painting as they falling helplessly in love. You have the chance to view this show yourself this weekend with the final shows set for tonight and Saturday. *** Former Capital News editor Patrick Denton once mentored me with the following words about column writing. “Forget trying to craft brilliantly written commentaries on what’s wrong with the world, why we need to abolish the Senate, or what the hell is wrong in Ottawa,

Victoria, or even City Hall. Nobody really cares about pressing social needs such as the lack of national day care, homelessness, or how many people starved to death this month. “Nope. If you really want readership reaction write something critical about girl guide cookie sales, pontificate why we should no longer swear allegiance to the Queen, or write about your favourite puppy dog. If you have pictures of him even better.” Ironically enough, good ole’ Patrick was correct. I don’t have a puppy anymore (violins please) but as some Hodge Podge readers may be aware, I certainly have a few kittens. In fact, my house currently resembles a cat farm. True to Patrick’s prediction, I have received numerous emails, phone calls and comments from folks following two columns mentioning that I am fostering four new kittens and their feral mom. Seems Kelowna readers have a soft spot and interest in following the fun and frivolity of four frisky four-footed felines. Several folks asked for an update on Scaredy Cat and kids. Following the wise advice of cat guru Helena Pol and some caring veterinarians, Scaredy was fixed and returned to our care. While it is not my intent to try and convert Scaredy to a shed cat permanently she has decided it is safer than whatever woodpile it was she was hiding under before. Young and wild as she is, there is a hint of
a kitten who was once a pet and loved briefly. I will continue to feed her until well and let her decide her future. I do not believe in outdoor cats, however Scaredy sought me out for protection—not imprisonment. At least she will not produce more feral kittens for the world to deal with. Meanwhile, life is a constant riot and joy in the basement suite of our home. I had forgotten just how much true pleasure kittens can be if you happen to like cats. As a long-time cat lovers, Teresa and I know that like humans, the first few years of life have a huge impact on their quality and character development. With Teresa on the scene, I am pretty sure that a lack of cuddles and kindness will not be an issue. I’m not sure who is having more fun, Teresa or the four balls of fur. *** For anyone venturing down to Penticton for the Peach Festival later this month, you may want to put on your cowboy boots and plan on visiting the Peach City on Aug. 8. That is the day that local country singer Trudy ‘TJ’ Janicki (aka Charlie Rae) will be belting out some fine songs as a featured artist. TJ and Horseplay are set to take the Peach Festival stage at 1 p.m. and folks can expect to hear a number of country classic covers as well as several superb originals written by the always entertaining TJ.
Springfield Rd. lane restrictions for paving Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 4, until Saturday, Aug. 8, paving on Springfield Road between Monterey Road to Rutland Road South will reduce traffic to one travel lane in each direction from 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Traffic may periodically be reduced to singlelane alternating traffic between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Hollywood Road South at Springfield Road will be closed on the south side, with a detour onto Peck Road for the duration of the project, which will be dependent on weather. Motorists can expect delays and are asked to follow instructions of on-site traffic safety personnel and the posted detour routes.

news _____________________________________________________________________ OVERCOMING INJURIES
Medical recovery top priority Achieving Justice PAUL HERGOTT struggle with every fibre of your being to let go of as little of your life as possible during the initial, most acute stage of your injuries and symptoms and, as symptoms ease during your recovery, to kick, claw and scratch to take back as much as possible of your life that you initially lost hold of. You are the victim of a negligent driver. There was nothing you could have done to avoid the injuries. Your goal, second to achieving as complete and quick a recovery as possible, is to minimize the impacts those injuries and associated symptoms have on you, your life, and the lives of those around you. How do you accomplish this? It takes a complete shift of approach from what the world expects. Instead of asking your doctor for a note to take time away from work, and returning for more notes as time goes on, I recommend struggling to try not to take any time off work, leaving it up to your employer to send you away if you are clearly
unproductive, or your doctor to order you away from work. If ordered away, I recommend pushing to get back to work as quickly as possible and, in the meantime, working with your employer and doctor to figure out lighter duty work, or a shortened shift, that you might be able to handle. Not cost effective for your employer? Offer to work at a reduced wage, or even on a volunteer basis; anything that will keep you in the loop and as productive as possible. The same goes for life outside of work. Certainly, consult with your doctor and others on your treatment team if you are fearful that returning to this or that activity might interfere with the top priority of recovery from your injuries, but continually try to get back to your activities except as medically restricted. If your treatment team holds you back in any way, get clarification to know exactly what the restrictions are so that you can work around them. Also, push to have those restrictions lifted as your recovery progresses. Does this sound like medical or rehabilitation advice? Is this what
‘Poutine Express’ comes to Kelowna
The 2015 Poutine Gravy Train Tour will make a stop in Kelowna on Tuesday, from noon to 1:30 p.m. The promotion will include free poutine and a poutine speed eating competition at the downtown Kelowna location on Bernard Avenue of Smoke’s Poutinerie. Participants can clock their best poutine eating time for the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the 6th annual World Poutine Eating Championship to be held in Toronto on Oct. 3, 2015. The current record to beat is 20.13 seconds achieved on July 25 in Sault Ste. Marie. Poutine eating champion Tim “Gravy” Brown and “Mark the Knife” will demonstrate how to make the perfect poutine. The Poutine tour
started in Nova Scotia on July 13 will stop in 18 cities before concluding in Vancouver on Aug. 6. At every tour
destination, the public is invited for free poutine and to qualify for the poutine eating national finals.
you would expect to hear from an insurance company? It happens to be the best legal advice you could get to maximize the prospect of fair financial compensation for your injuries and losses. I did it again; I took an entire column for the top priority and now again for number two. I promise to wrap up my list of priorities in my column next week. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case. Paul Hergott is a personal injury lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna. email@example.com
I set out, last week, to provide a priority list of what to do after being injured in a crash. I got carried away with the highest priority item—pursuing medical recovery. So today let me continue with the priority list. Your injuries, and the pain, stiffness and other symptoms that are part and parcel with those injuries, are only a part of the post-crash aftermath. The other is the impact those injuries and symptoms have on your life. Impacts can be relatively small, limited “only” to the physical experience of enduring those symptoms, and leaving the victim able to carry on with work, household duties, recreation, hobbies and all the other bits and pieces that make up our day to day lives. At the other end of the spectrum, impacts can be profound—disability from an established career path, interfering with home and yard functions, and taking away the ability to participate in (or enjoy) recreation, hobbies and “life” in general. Here comes my recommendation of your next critically important priority, second to the diligent pursuit of your recovery. I recommend that you

Paddy was predeceased by her sister, SheriLynn Gillis (Max), Wilf Schmidt (Evelyn), and stepfather, Art Vipond (Gena). Paddy was a beautiful, free, adventurous spirit with a big heart. She loved her family, friends, animals, and nature. One of her biggest joys was to walk in the mountains.

Paddy will always be remembered for her big smile and her love for helping people and animals. Should friends desire, donations may be made to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice at www.hospice. com/donate. We would lke to thank all the staff of Hospice for their support and caring for Paddy during her 5-week care.

Pirate Pak Day returns Aug. 12
Make a Will Campaign launch
The annual White Spot fundraiser that provides summer camp experience for kids in need will return Aug. 12. Pirate Pak Day, held for the sixth consecutive years, will see a toonie from the sale of every Pirate Pak donated to the Zajac Ranch For Children, a local charity that provides kids and young adults with lifethreatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a chance to attend a summer camp. White Spot restaurants across Alberta and B.C., including the outlets in Kelowna and West Kelowna, support this annual fundraiser. Pirate Pak Day has raised a total of $347,172 since its inception, and sent more than 100 young buccaneers to camp. White Spot Week at
Fifty per cent of Canadians don’t have a will, a fact the Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA) wants to change. The COHA is committed to changing views on death and dying, by opening conversations and providing information about wills and health care planning. You can join COHA’s Make a Will Campaign by logging onto www.iwillpledge.ca today to get started. Those who sign up will receive an information package, list of professionals who are available to help, our gift of a reminder magnet and other valuable information. Making a will is an opportunity to ensure that our wishes are carried out, and not left to others to make decisions, even after we’re gone. Consider these disturbing facts: If you don’t make or update your will, others may decide who raises your children; others may take your pet to a shelter; and family members may have difficult and sometimes adversarial decisions to make about property and personal items if no direction was given in a will. The COHA has also organized a public forum with tax, estate, legal and health experts for Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m., at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre in Kelowna. This will be a webcasted event as participants will be provided information and an opportunity to ask questions of the panel of professionals.
Zajac Ranch runs from Aug. 17 to 21 and includes activities ranging from kayaking and climbing to swimming and horseback riding. “Pirate Pak Day is a big event for us, one that both our staff and guests look forward to every year,” said White Spot president Warren Erhart. “Money raised on this special day helps young mateys facing difficult challenges, and wouldn’t be possible without the participation of our valued guests,” said Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “We’ll be dressed up in our best swashbuckling outfits, so come join the merriment.” “White Spot has become integral in our ability to enrich the lives of kids who need support,” Zajac continued.
Youngster shows her affection towards a horse at the Zagac Ranch For Children. “Community initiatives like [this] help us offer illness-specific camps that put smiles of the faces of these kids. For instance, many of our campers get to ride a horse for the first time in their life.” On Aug. 12 only, adult Pirate Paks are available
for both dine-in and takeout, in four options: • Legendary Burger • BC Chicken Burger • Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger • Portobello Provolone Veggie Burger Each option comes in the nostalgic Pirate Pak
Meet Sons Of Anarchy cast members Konquer Motorcycles in Kelowna will host another Kids Care charity fundraiser on Aug. 15, from 6 to 11 p.m. The motorcycle dealership, located at 892 McCurdy Pl., will host a meet & greet with two stars from the television series Sons Of Anarchy. Making an appearance in Kelowna will be Kim Coates, who appeared in 95 episodes as the character Alex ‘Tig” Trager, and Theo Rossi, in 93 episodes as Juan Carlos ‘Juice’ Ortiz.
Sons of Anarchy was an American crime drama television series created by Kurt Sutter, about the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in California’s Central Valley. Tig was the sexually deviant, prone-to-violence Sergeant-at-Arms of the club when the series begins while ‘Juice’ is the club’s hacker and intelligence officer. Some 350 tickets will be sold for this event, which will include a Sons
Of Anarchy T-shirt, poster, catered sit-down dinner by Routes Grille, live local band Rumble 100, and a chance to meet both
actors. There will also be a cash bar making it an age 19-plus event. Tickets are $125/person.

OC, and all of these people that are now staying in the valley that used to leave, we have so many opportunities. It’s really because of getting higher education here, more opportunities for people to study here. “Then the spinoffs that come from universities and colleges is that they create jobs, they create research opportunities and industry and businesses that create jobs that attract and retain bright, young people. So I just think it’s been an amazing opportunity to get involved with that in the time I’ve been here.” Arsenault is still involved with UBCO as co-chair of the UBC External Community Advisory Committee. While Arsenault has been instrumental in improving the post-secondary education opportunities in the Okanagan, she has also seen outstanding
you can only help them if they trust you and come to you for assistance and follow your advice. It’s not just about make a quick buck and move on, because the growth of any practice and business depends on referrals from satisfied clients and customers. She also had some words for women who are beginning leadership roles. “Don’t be afraid to take a leadership role, the community needs leaders,” Arsenault explained. “It’s not about getting credit, it’s about getting work done and about making a difference and making the community the way you want it to be, and I think anyone who wants to make a difference can. “Secondly, people need to be careful about balance, and not just paying lip service to balance but doing things like looking after themselves. Get exercise, have quiet time. Have that balance so that even when you’re really going and you’ve got your work, your volunteer work, your family, all

A partnership between:
success as a lawyer. In 2009 she was award Queen’s Counsel, a prestigious achievement for her time practicing law. With more than three decades of experience and a love for helping others, Arsenault offered advice for people just starting their careers. “The first thing is to know your area, you need to have some substantive knowledge of what you’re going to be working in,” she noted. “The second one is to not be afraid of sharing that knowledge with people, because only good can come from sharing that knowledge. “And build relationships, especially when you’re in a service industry like I am, people like to deal with people they like. Building relationships is really important, because you are helping people and
courtroom. During her time in Kelowna, she has been a vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce and spent six years on University of British Columbia’s Board of Governors, including one year as board chair. Arsenault recalled it was during her time with the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce that she first became involved with UBC. “I had the chance to lead the campaign to bring degrees to Kelowna,” she explained. “Back in the 1980s there were just two-year programs at Okanagan College. I helped lead the Chamber in the Getting There by Degrees program, which lobbied the provincial government into making Okanagan College a four-year institution. That was back in the day when Okanagan College became a four year institution, then became Okanagan University College, and in 2005 was taken over by UBC to become one of UBC’s campuses, with Okanagan College remaining as a freestanding institution. So it was a really cool opportunity to get to help the community create more access to higher education because the effect has been amazing on the valley. “Between the 8,300 students at UBCO and the 7 to 8,000 students at
For three decades, Theresa Arsenault has been practising business and estate planning law in Kelowna. Arsenault has been a lawyer for 33 years, spending the last 30 with Pushor Mitchell, where she is now a senior partner. She started her law career in litigation, but quickly moved into business and estate planning law as she found litigation did not suit her personality as she wanted to help people reach deals, not handle the fallout of ones that fell through. The transition to business and estate management law proved to be a great decision for Arsenault, as she loves learning and helping people— things she gets to do with regularity in her job. In addition to serving her clients, Arsenault’s current role has her mentoring the junior lawyers and new staff at the firm—something she really enjoys to do. “It feels great to see people succeed,” she described. “I don’t take credit for people succeeding, people succeed because they have the skills to succeed, and if I can sort of help them along, great. It is a great feeling to help other people, it’s one of the most rewarding things people can feel.” Arsenault’s career and expertise in law have enabled her to serve the community in many other ways outside the
