WEEKEND CLOSE-UP

H

the

B.C.

great day trivia contest

ow clever are you when it comes to information about this province and its inhabitants? Have fun testing your knowledge and learn more about the province of B.C. in the process. But, it’s not a test; it’s a contest. There will be a number of excellent prizes for the top entries. There are lots of easy questions and a few moredifficult ones that will separate the learned from the, well, notso-learned, when it comes to facts about this province. It won’t help you to know who the president of the United States is; or the most-used language of Iran, but you will need to know a little about the province we’re celebrating this weekend: B.C. Since the intention of the B.C. Day statutory holiday, when it was first introduced in 1974, was to honour the province’s pioneers, you will find there are a good selection of local history questions. Good luck and have fun. For details, turn to page 3.

Male nude art in downtown exhibit called appropriate for city art gallery Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It should have caused more controversy, and it would have caused more controversy, but ultimately it didn’t. In fact, few of those gathered at the Bohemian Café Thursday evening for the Okanagan Institute’s conversation on male nudity in local art said the curtains covering works of art this spring in the Joice Hall exhibit at the Kelowna Art Gallery caught their attention at the time. Those who did take notice evidently opted not to say anything. “I think a lot of people were discouraged by the drapery…I think it’s unfortunate we didn’t speak up,” said one audience member. The cordoned off section included a few nude male figurative paintings and proved a lightening rod for up-and-coming artist Cory Dixon, who was completing his fourth year project of male nude installations at the time. “We have a very large and vocal sector in our community saying, ‘No, no we don’t want this,’” said Dixon, who argues the Okanagan has a history of censoring male nude work. During the talk, Dixon revealed that his painting hanging in a downtown Kelowna business had to be removed as complaints came in about the work. By and large, however, he was preaching to the

choir, Thursday, as those gathered for the discussion came close to grilling local artist and Kelowna Art Gallery employee Shauna Oddleifson over the gallery’s decision and the place for so-called controversial work on its walls. As a long-time member of Kelowna’s arts community, Oddleifson explained she had no hand in the decision-making process as the show does not fall within her purview. Still, she did point out there are things a public gallery, particularly one representing the city as a whole, may not wish to do. “For certain types of work, a public gallery is not the right venue. You want somewhere where more is actually happening around it,” she said. “It’s not that controversial art shouldn’t be in a public gallery…(but) if it is in more of a festival scene…then there is more room for discussion.” Oddleifson was a part of the group that started the Duotone festivals,

which became Cake Walk and are now running under the moniker Conduit. The grassroots collaborative events, she argued, offer a way for artists to showcase controversial topics without the sanction, or framing, a formal gallery with the city’s name on it imposes. That didn’t sit well with some at the talk. “I don’t feel it’s ever a gallery’s right to label something as controversial. The second you do that, it’s controversial,” one woman said. “By putting the curtains up, it’s capitulation

to that message.” Dixon, in the meantime, will open a temporary exhibit of his work in a storefront next week which will feature male nude imagery in a public spot where anyone and everyone can go in and check it out. On Tuesday, Aug. 3, Discus(t)? Conversations About the Male Body— New paintings by Cory Dixon opens at 1650 Pandosy St. A reception will be held Aug. 3 from 7 to 11 p.m. The temporary space will exhibit the paintings until Aug. 15.

Kelowna council mails complaint re: census The letter is in the mail to try and stop the Harper Conservatives from ousting the national census. On Monday Kelowna city council decided to write a letter expressing concern about the federal government’s decision to abandon the long form census. Census information is used in a wide variety of ways from road network planning to determining affordable housing needs, leading cities across the province to voice concern the information will no longer be available. “Without similar information from other com-

munities we would lose the opportunity to compare ourselves to others,” the letter states. At the end of June, the government announced it will replace the long form census with a voluntary survey. This week the impending change became a major political sparing point. The Conservatives argue imposing threats of jail time to demand information is wrong, the Liberals arguing there have been little to no privacy complaints and that the information is invaluable. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

ORIC and OSTEC Manning and Nahal join the agree to merge Okanagan College board into one entity Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

A new Kelowna partnership could make for a leaner, meaner technology sector. This week tech business incubator ORIC and trade association OSTEC, announced they’d be joining forces, appointing a business mentor and entrepreneur Mark Payne to be the lead person on the merger. Payne, familiar to the tech community for being an ORIC mentor in residence and member of the B.C. Innovation Council, says the decision to meld the two groups is simply a matter relating to the tech sector growing up. “It’s a sign of maturity that (the organizations) are going to the next level,� he said. Payne added there’s no reason why local tech companies can’t compete with their counterparts from larger urban centres

with the right support. That said, it’s unclear what the two organization’s combined efforts will shape up to be. All that’s certain, is that the time had come for the two to work together. “There was a reasonable amount of overlap between the organizations ‌the logical thing to do was make it simpler for the community and build it further,â€? he said. The feedback he’s received since the Wednesday afternoon announcement proves others were of the same mind, he said, noting he’s been run off his feet in the days since the announcement. “Together they are stronger,â€? he said. “It’s a good step to have one voice working for the technology sector in the Okanagan.â€?

There will be two new faces at the Okanagan College Board of Governors table when it convenes again this fall. The provincial government has appointed Doug Manning and Sunddip Nahal to the board for one-year terms, commencing July 31. Manning is an educational consultant and is the former CEO, president and director of Bridges.com, North America’s leading provider of career and educational planning solutions. He’s also the current Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Okanagan College. Nahal is a teacher with School District 83 in Salmon Arm and an educational consultant. She’s also the cofounder of ilearn B.C. School Society and has a Doctor of Education degree in leadership and ad-

ministration from the University of Phoenix. “I am really honored to be appointed as a board member for Okanagan College,� said Nahal. “I look forward to taking my educational experiences and serving the board with my continued passion for change in education and being involved in the interesting changes and innovative practices of the college.� “Okanagan College has shown great growth over the past five years,� added Manning. “I am looking forward to working with the board to continue development that benefits the students and employers in our community.� Both Manning and Nahal bring significant experience in education and serving students to the board of governors, said Lance Kayfish, chair of the OC Board of

GOT PONDS?

Governors. “We’re looking forward to the contributions and perspectives that Doug and Sunddip can bring to our board,� he said. “The board will have an important role to play as we continue our pattern of success and continue to move the college forward with projects such as the Centre of Excellence in Penticton.� Manning’s and Nahal’s appointments come

as board members Paul Johnson and Jane Lister complete their terms. Both were appointed in November2005. Kayfish and William Cooke were both reappointed by the government for three-year terms.

The other Okanagan College board members are Phillippe Bourbeau, Michael Conlin, Rick Gee, Brian Hughes, Andrew Nelson, Yvonne Pinder, Lianne Rozniak, Tom Styffe and Loretta Swite.

s it hot enough for you yet? Okanagan folks are a spoiled bunch. We complain all winter and spring about how cold and wet the weather is— then complain that it’s too hot come July and August. So just for the official record—I am not complaining about the heat. Bring it on! Certainly with the scorching summer heat there are plenty of fun things to take part in during the next few weeks. For tourists and locals alike I offer a few ideas. Next week’s schedule for live music downtown is excellent. The Parks Alive program will feature Dynamic Duos on Tuesday. Aug.t 3. from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.. at Knowles Park (corner of Ethel and Bernard) which includes Lyndsay and Alyssa (duo group with acoustic guitars and vocal) at 6:30 p.m., and the Grateful Dads (duo pop) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday Night at the Island stage between 6 and 9 p.m. will be jazz music featuring three acts: Devin Roth Trio (trio), my good friend Olga Osipova at 7 p.m., and Amanda Morazain and guests at 8 p.m. Thursday is a night of rock at Redridge Park

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge (Crawford Estates sports field) featuring Subtaerialus (trio; light rock), Colors and Tones (fourpiece alternative rock) and finally Type Monkey Type (trio; upbeat alternative rock) Next Friday (Aug. 6) is World Music night at Kerry Park and will feature Samba Tribe (sixpiece, interactive Brazilian music and dance troupe) at 6 p.m. followed by Rumi (Duo; Andean Pan Flute), Bruno Baumgartner Weather (trio, traditional and contemporary French music), and finally SaintPierre (duo; contemporary French music). If all that activity is not enough then next Saturday features two other great events to attend. On Aug. 7. downtown will play host to the 22nd annual Mardi Gras street festival. Organized by the hardworking Downtown Kelowna Association, the fun family oriented event includes a plethora of merchants placing

Mardi Gras is scheduled to run from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. Wear a hat! And if you are a hockey fan then you definitely want to take in the third annual Hockey Greats Playoff Game for the Rick Hansen Foundation on Aug. 7, starting at 2 p.m. Held at the Mt. Boucherie Complex, the fundraiser organized by former New York Islander star Bob Bourne will feature former NHL players such as Dave Semenko, Dale Hawerchuk, Bryan Trottier, Clark Gillies, Billy Smith, Steve Shutt, Cliff Ronning, Ron Flockhart, Doug Bodger, Gary Nylund, and Larry Melnyk in action.

ON A BRIGHTER NOTE

That baby needs a hat WELBOURNE

W

alking with my friend one morning an older man approached, looked down at her baby in the covered stroller and sternly said, “That baby needs a hat!” Stunned by his rudeness, I also noticed that my friend was visibly upset by his remark and I remembered what it sometimes felt like to get unsolicited advice when you have a baby, particularly when you’re an exhausted new mother. “It’s a warm summer day,” I

assured her. “I think she’s doing fine without a hat.” “I know,” she replied. “But I’m so tired. I haven’t had a good sleep in months. I feel like I’m on the verge of tears all the time and people like that don’t help. It seems like no matter what I do, someone out there is telling me I’m doing it wrong.” I realized that her feelings had less to do with the grumpy old stranger than all the other comments and advice she had heard prior to that day. “The nurse tells me to put her on her back when she sleeps,” she continued. “But my mother keeps telling me to put her on her belly. My books tell me to feed her whenever she’s hungry, but my sister said to keep her feedings on a strict four hour schedule. And I tried to breast feed, but I couldn’t do it anymore and had to switch to bottle feeding. Now I’m getting the evil eye from strangers.”

As I listened, I reflected on my own experience and some of the conflicting advice I received as a new mother. In the beginning I was told by a variety of different people that my son was eating too often, sleeping too much and about to get squished to death if we continued to sleep with him in our family bed. Initially I found it upsetting as well. But as time went on and the advice kept coming, I stopped noticing it as much. Until the day when one of my friends told me that my one-year old son should be on solid foods and that I was obviously just breastfeeding for my own

pleasure. That was a good one. Remembering all that, I felt equipped to offer some words of wisdom. “It gets better with the second child,” I offered. “People seem to relax and think you must know what you’re doing by then.” “But how do you know what’s right and what’s wrong?” she asked. “There are so many ways to raise a child,” I replied. “Different people and cultures will do things completely different. The best advice I could give you is to

Gout is an extremely painful condition that can effect people of all races and ages. It can effect both men and women but it is more common in men. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Classic signs of gout are swelling in the big toe, ankle, knees or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. SciMed Research is starting a research trial to evaluate a new investigational therapy to lower uric acid, the cause of gout. If you have been diagnosed with or suffer from gout symptoms you may qualify to participate in this research trial. Please call Scimed Research to register for a no cost or obligation consultation to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this GOUT study. Dr. Bryan Proskiw M.D Investigator

listen to what people have to say, but at the end of the day, go on your own maternal instinct.” “What if I’m too tired to find it?” she asked. “Then do something I didn’t do enough of,” I replied. “Sleep when she sleeps and let the dishes and everything else stack up. And if that’s not enough, ask for help.” Not one to shy away from an opportunity, my friend took my advice and napped the rest of the afternoon while I did her dishes and made her dinner. Okay, that’s not exactly how it happened. I did call her a cleaning service and I did drop off a sushi platter, but come on, I was needing a nap myself.

W WOMEN’S ENTERPRISE CENTRE

Mentoring builds self-confidence Women entrepreneurs in the first three years of business reported a significant increase in their confidence levels after receiving mentoring through Women’s Enterprise Centre’s Taking the Leap to Entrepreneurship Program in B.C. last year. After completing the Peer Mentoring Group program, 86 per cent of participants rated their confidence levels as high in managing all the aspects of their business, as opposed to only 41 per cent at the beginning of the program. To continue building confidence in new business owners, Women’s Enterprise Centre will be launching a Peer Mentor-

ing Group in Kelowna this September. This free program is designed specifically to help women entrepreneurs in the first three years of business address the issues and challenges they experience while transitioning to self-employment. “Women understand that being part of a mentoring program can help them overcome steep learning curves and build new business skills,” said Laurel Douglas, chief executive officer of the Women’s Enterprise Centre. “But more than anything they seek mentorship to help develop their confidence, to receive

guidance and support and to have a sounding board to bounce ideas off of.” Peer Mentoring Groups are also designed specifically to help women escape from the sense of isolation that entrepreneurship sometimes causes and to seek support from a group of women who understand their challenges. Kelowna entrepreneur Terri Knox, successful entrepreneur, speaker, author

and consultant will be the facilitator and mentor for the Kelowna Peer Mentoring Group this September. The group will meet for six, two hour sessions. Each session follows an outlined format that focuses on a specific business skill or knowledge gap and allows the group to discuss individual challenges and brainstorm potential solutions. There’s still space for

six to eight women in the first three years of business to join. Groups will also be starting in Penticton, Oliver, Kamloops and Campbell River. To read more about Women’s Enterprise Centre’s Peer Mentoring Groups or apply to become a mentor or mentee, check out the website www.womensenterprise. ca or email mentoring@ womensenterprise.ca.

City re-opens Kerry Park walkway The Kerry Park walkway, lakeside between City Park to Stuart Park, has re-opened so park users have access during the long weekend. The walkway was closed earlier this summer following the detection of a fuel leak. “Protecting the lake was the city’s top priority and we took immediate action to ensure the fuel leak was contained,” said Lance Kayfish, risk manager for the City of Kelowna. “We ask park goers to be cautious on that section of uneven path, especially during the night. We hope to have the bricks back in place as soon as possible so the pathway can be accessible to all.” Kelowna Marina has installed a new fuel distribution system, with a new fuel line. The underground tank passed a nitrogen pressure test, which indicates that there are no leaks in the tank.

RUGGED SNOW-CAPPED MOUNTAINS reflect off a pristine lake in Glacier National Park.

W U.S. PARK

Ride the rails to Glacier National Park Explore Montana’s majestic peaks, stunning waters Kerri Westenberg CONTRIBUTOR

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Montana— On sunny days, Lake McDonald shimmers like blue silk, enticing visitors to plunge into its richly coloured water. But that would be a mistake. Hypothermia would quickly set in because the lake is fed by the same forces that formed it— glaciers. So instead, I explored its waters the way so many other tourists have since Montana’s Glacier National Park was created 100 years ago. I

boarded a creaking wooden tour boat. The double-decker DeSmet, with its varnished wood benches and thick coats of turquoise and white paint, eased from the dock with a lowgrade rumble one bright morning this summer. From the open-air upper deck, I watched beyond the stern as mountains, still draped in snow, rippled in the water’s reflection. “We saw a bear and a bald eagle yesterday. Keep an eye out,” our guide told us. The DeSmet has been carrying tourists past such scenes since it was built in 1930. Before roads cut through the thick forest, the boat and

others that preceded it ferried tourists from a point near West Glacier rail station, where many of them arrived, to Lake McDonald Lodge. The boat ride was not my only brush with history. The evening before, I’d arrived by train— following the same remarkable route laid down by St. Paul’s Great Northern Railway more than 100 years earlier. I boarded Amtrak’s Empire Builder at 10:30 one night in mid-June for the 21-hour trip to Glacier, fell into the bed of my sleeper car and awoke the next morning somewhere in the middle of North Dakota.

Enjoy the scenery—no driving Glacier from A12 stops at small towns with near-empty main streets. At one, a few passengers who know the timing of the line well scampered across the tracks to a bar advertising music and beer with rusting signs; it was time for their happy hour—more like 15 minutes. “The scenery, plus no driving,� said Roger Krob of Superior, Wis., explaining why he and his wife, Cora, take the train whenever they can. I met the couple during our own true happy hour, a wine and cheese tasting for sleeping car passengers in the Empire Builder’s dining car. As we sipped Oregon wines out of plastic cups

and ate chunks of Wisconsin cheese on crackers—products from states on either end of the Empire Builder line—I learned that the Krobs were on their way to Sacramento, Calif., to attend a Laurel and Hardy convention. Roger, who resembles Stan Laurel, is the vice-sheik of Busy Bodies, essentially a group that celebrates the early Hollywood comedy team. Laurel and Hardy, it turns out, appeal to the Krobs because they represent a simpler time, when life was less complicated—a lot like the railroad. That night at dinner, sitting beside a lifelong Montana farmer, I got my first jolting look at the Rockies—towering peaks that abruptly soar

into view after endless miles of prairie. By dessert, the train was rolling past the southern border of Glacier National Park and its mountains of wilderness, lush gorges and whitewater rapids on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. It wasn’t the majesty of the landscape that spurred St. Paul railroad baron James J. Hill and his son Louis to fight for its designation as a national park. Rather, it was its potential to generate money. The route of their Great Northern Railway

to the Pacific Ocean was laid down by 1893. With the help of Blackfeet Indians, the railway’s engineer had found Marias Pass, the lowest point through the Continental Divide, at 5,216 feet. The Hills understood that a national park would bring riders to that relatively new route. When Glacier joined the park system in 1910, the railroad company was ready. It built clapboard lodges adorned with window boxes and created ads designed to See Glacier A14

For my first day in the park, I headed to a grander accommodation, Lake McDonald Lodge, which opened in 1914. The scenery on the Going to the Sun, the only road that cuts through the park, was stunning: turn-

outs led to rocky beaches or views of glacierscoured mountains. At Lake McDonald, I got a slightly different vantage aboard the DeSmet. From his small cockpit, Capt.

He told us that 14 other boats lie at the lake’s bottom: “With all the wood

around, it was easier to sink a boat and build a new one than to haul an old one out for repairs.� The boat glided past young evergreens taking hold amid the bare trunks of trees that had burned during the devastating fires of 2003. Firebaugh told us about the natural recovery of the forest, a happy tale of nature. But then he shared some sobering statistics: There are only 25 glaciers in this national park named after the frozen wonders of nature. Last year, the count stood at 27; in 1985, it was 150. He added no commentary to the facts. But in answer to a curious visitor, Firebaugh explained, “I’ve learned not to say anything about global warming. It’s not worth the fights.� Dr. Lyman B. Sperry, an early supporter of the park, once wrote, “Finding that a single day in this remarkable place could give but a taste of its delights, some of our party determined to visit again as soon as practicable.� I decided the same.

IF YOU GO:

The Basics: Glacier National Park became the 10th national park on May 11, 1910. It preserves more than 1 million acres of land carved by glaciers and includes 25 remnant glaciers in Montana’s Rocky Mountains. Going to the Sun Road, the only road across the park, offers scenic views as it

climbs over the Continental Divide. Snow makes it unpassable for much of the year. Where To Stay: Belton Chalet, the first of the hotels built in the area by the Great Northern Railway, opened in 1910 and still serves travelers (www.beltonchalet.com; 1-406-888-5000). Glacier Park Lodge and Many Glaciers Hotel, both built by the railway, and Lake McDonald Lodge, which the ravilway purchased in the 1930s,

are in the park. Book through Glacier Park Inc. (www.glacierparkinc. com; 1-406-892-2525). Nationalparkreservations. com—which often pops up during Web searches for lodging in the park, though it is not a park concessionaire—charges a 10 percent nonrefundable fee for processing a reservation.

Riding The Rails: Amtrak’s Empire Builder, which runs between Chicago and Portland and Seattle, travels along the southern border of Glacier National Park and makes stops for parkgoers at East Glacier Park, Essex and West Glacier. Amtrak offers three kinds of sleeper cars and coach seats, which are comparable to first-class airplane seats. Book early for best fares (www.amtrak.com; 1-800-872-7245).

W TRAVEL GEAR

Trends in totes–office on the run Josh Noel CONTRIBUTOR

Luggage is like a fresh haircut—if it’s good, you shouldn’t think much about it. If it’s bad, it’ll make you crazy at every turn. Particularly for business travel, luggage is key. Compact, sturdy and reliable make 5:30 a.m. wakeup calls and long hours in the airport far more tolerable. That’s why we arrived at the recent Summer Luggage Gift & Travel Goods Show in Chicago with an eye on the new, the reliable and the useful. Here is some of the best of what we found while trolling the aisles. 1. Business backpacks—Several companies recently have taken a shot at this increasingly popular item. Kenneth Cole, for instance, offers a black backpack retailing for $99.95 that has thick, fashionable zippers

and would look absurd on a hiking trail—by design. “You don’t want to walk into a business meeting with a JanSport,” a dealer told me. “We want to make something that looks good and transports easily.” 2. The “wide body”— The typical rolling carryon is 22 inches tall and significantly taller than it is wide. The newer 20-inchlong design is closer to a square so business travelers can fit the bag in overhead compartments of increasingly common regional jets, which have much smaller storage space. Like the backpack, several companies also are making this bag, including Travelpro, Briggs & Riley, and Hartmann. 3. Your carry-on becomes a table—After seeing a traveler drop his laptop twice at a terminal, Michael DeVolder came up with this contraption that retails for $39.95 and

weighs a shade less than two pounds. Simply extend the handle of your roller case, unfold this table and attach via two rounded hooks. “It’s an instant table, whether for your computer or your lunch,” he said. It’s a tad bulky to drag around but beats a hot laptop on your lap. (traveltable.com) 4. Korchmar’s magnetic snapping briefcase—A

fourth-generation familyowned company based in Naples, Fla., Korchmar has developed a line of cases that are easy to open but stay snugly closed thanks to neodymium boron magnets. Better still, they look great. (korchmar.com) 5. Zuca’s suitcase that—doubles as a chair? Sure enough. It comes in two models, the Zuca Pro and the Zuca Sport. The

ÊJF# N?8KËJ CLK?<I8E D<8E6Ë What’s in our name “Grace Lutheran,” if anything? There’s a lot to the name “Lutheran.” A “Lutheran” is defined as a person who holds to the teachings of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther, who was born November 10, 1483 and died on February 18, 1546. Luther was a German priest and professor of Old Testament theology, whose writings sparked the Protestant Reformation. Even Luther’s surname or last name sheds light on the reformer and what it means to be a Lutheran. The reformer’s family went by the name “Luder” or “Luhder.” In 1517, at age 34, Martin changed his surname from “Luder” to “Luther.” He chose the name “Luther” because the word finds its roots in the Greek word “eleutheros”, which means “free” or “freed.” The reformer had changed his name to Martin “Freed-man.” The change in his last name was an external sign of what was happening in Luther’s own heart, mind and soul. Luther’s writings reveal that for many years, he was anything but a free man. They reveal that he was trapped man; bound up in himself. People in Luther’s time were pressed on many sides. People died as a result of war, starvation, the plague and other diseases which were rampant. Luther, like all people of his day, feared not only death but also Hell and eternal punishment. He believed that, while death could not be avoided, Hell and eternal punishment could be avoided. Luther believed if he obeyed God’s rules scrupulously, the way to paradise was open to him. Luther believed that he was responsible for his own salvation. He embarked on a religious quest to save his soul. He became a monk in the Augustinian Order. He attempted to be the best monk he could be. However he soon learned it was impossible to live a ‘perfect life’.

THIS ZUCA’S suitcase doubles as a chair.

Zuca Pro, designed for business travelers, fits in overhead bins. The 19-inch-long bag is encased in an anodized aluminum frame that indeed makes for a sturdy and comfortable seat, perfect if airport seats at your gate are full or, as is sometimes the case, gross. It retails for $285, but we saw it at overstock. com for $205. Or visit zuca.com.

In 1519, Luther began to study the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Romans. He was stopped cold by verse 17 of the first chapter of Romans: “For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’” He came to hate the phrase “in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed.” He had learned to translate these words to mean that God was perfect and holy and that God judges all people by the standard of His own perfection. A human being could never live up to God’s perfection; therefore, God punishes all sinners. Luther wrote: “But I, blameless monk that I was, felt that before God I was a sinner with an extremely troubled conscience. I couldn’t be sure that God was appeased by my satisfaction [defined as good works he had performed as a monk]. I did not love, no, rather I hated the just God who punishes sinners. In silence, if I did not blaspheme, then certainly I grumbled vehemently and got angry at God. I said, “Isn’t it enough that we miserable sinners, lost for all eternity because of original sin, are oppressed by every kind of calamity through the Ten Commandments? Why does God heap sorrow upon sorrow through the Gospel and

through the Gospel threaten us with his justice and his wrath?” This was how I was raging with wild and disturbed conscience.” Luther needed to be “freed” from his understanding of God. One day, as Luther was reading Romans, God opened up Luther’s eyes so that he could see that the “righteousness of God” was Jesus. God gives us Jesus through faith. When we are baptized we put on Christ, like a robe, and God does not see us anymore, he sees Jesus in us. (Galatians 3:26-29) Luther wrote, “All at once I felt that I had been born again and entered into paradise itself through open gates. Immediately I saw the whole of Scripture in a different light.” Luther was permitted to see God in a new light; he no longer saw a God who was a perfect judge, jury and executioner. He was permitted to see God as our liberator and saviour, motivated by love. The Bible testifies that God knows we are sinners. Through King David, He said: “God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Everyone has turned away, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.” (Psalm 14:2-3 and Psalm 53:2-3). King David admitted to his sinfulness to God. “For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.” (Psalm 51:35). Because we exist in this state of sinfulness, we are incapable of looking for God and doing good. Yet God had a soft spot in His heart, felt love for people who failed and refused to seek Him and understand Him. God could not wait for the people to look for Him and turn to Him. God had to come to us, through Jesus. The Apostle Paul put it this way: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). God sent Jesus to look for sinners, find us and deal with our sin. Luther had been found by Jesus, and was a member of His church, the body of Christ. He had heard that Jesus had died for his sins and confessed it. However, Luther’s prejudices toward God came from his own reason and strength and from what he had learned from the church; these prejudices kept him from truly coming to understand and love God. Luther’s prejudices caused him to go on a religious quest for self-justification through obedience of the rules and laws set down by the church and Luther himself. Luther needed to hear these words penned by the Apostle Paul: “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:21). Paul’s letter to the Galatians was in response to a problem in their church. Some Jewish Christians had convinced them that their male members needed to be circumcised and all of them had to obey the Sabbath rules, tithe, and celebrate the festivals and dietary requirements set forth in the Torah

(Genesis to Deuteronomy), in addition to baptism and faith in Christ. They were told that following these rules would make them acceptable to God and worthy of salvation. Paul’s message to them was that God saved them not because they deserved or had earned salvation; God saved them out of His love for them, through their faith in Jesus. Paul warned the Galatians that if they tried to justify themselves through obedience to the law, they would literally cast God’s grace through Christ aside and take the path of selfjustification. Paul declared that if salvation was possible through self-justification, then Jesus died for nothing. The Galatians’ and Luther’s attempts at self-justification were, in the final analysis, at the very least a terrible snub against Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross and at worst, a denial of that sacrifice. However, God saved Luther from his predicament. He, like the members of the Church in Galatia, was permitted to see a gracious God. The Bible testifies that Christians in the 1st century struggled with their ideas about God. They believed that God demanded their perfection and self-justification in order to avoid God’s wrath. They needed to be freed from those ideas. Luther testified that he had experienced the Galatians’ bondage in the 16th century and God freed him from those ideas. The Galatians and the reformers testify that every generation of Christians must be confronted by sin, death and punishment in this life and the next, the desire to conform to God’s laws to avoid punishment in this life and the next, our inability to live up to these laws and our bad attitude toward God. For it is when experience God’s power, perfection, holiness and judgment together with of our frailty, brokenness and powerlessness, that we can hear these words: we are saved by a gracious and loving God for the sake of Jesus’ suffering and death, and therefore, we are set free. Are you in bondage to yourself and your ideas about God? God wants you to meet Him and His Son Jesus at a church near you, to hear the good news of Jesus and to change your name to “Freeman or Freewoman”. In Christ, Pastor Ed Skutshek Soli Deo Gloria P.S.

Not OK that B.C. imports electric power To the editor: It’s environmentally and economically unacceptable that an energy rich province like B.C. is having to import electricity. We need to start tapping into the wealth of runof-river, wind, biomass and other renewable green energy resources we have right here in this province.” News that BC Hydro will significantly increase its reliance on imported electricity this year may come as a shock to many energy-complacent British Columbians, but not to B.C. Citizens for Green Energy (BCCGE). BCCGE has been monitoring the electricity import issue for several months now after it became clear that low snowpack accumulation around the province this past winter would lead to low water levels in BC Hydro’s hydroelectric reservoirs.

Census decision another over-reach by Harper

T

he view must always looks better when looking through the federal Conservative Party’s coloured eyeglasses. A good example is the fuss kicked up in Ottawa over Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s decision to abandon the requirement for those people asked to fill out the Canada Census long form. Political pundits were all over Harper on this one because it was a decision that came out of the blue, and one that didn’t make a lot of sense to them. Even the head of Statistics Canada freaked out over the new policy, resigning his post. The crux of this issue is the long form asks a lot of questions, which ardent Conservative types have felt are

good intentions gone bad, so their argument goes, because the census form asks a lot of stupid questions they feel aren’t relevant for the stats folks, and the puniBarry tive measures imposed Gerding against the 20 per cent of Canadians randomly chosen to fill out the long form are excessive. Stockwell Day, the Conservative MP for the Okanagan-Coquihalla and the president of the federal treasury board, addressed the issue in his column published in today’s Westside section of the Capital News. His argument is the forms should be voluntary for people to fill out, to drop the jail threats for those who don’t want to fill it out. In a nutshell, that pretty much ren-

EDITOR’S NOTE

ders the statistical accuracy or value derived from the census as pretty useless. Day combines the concepts of voluntary and honest as producing a more fitting result, but if it comes to me in the mail on that basis, I will probably toss the form out or put it aside until I have time to fill it out, which these days is never. By its very nature, when not politicized, the census should provide some insight into our country. It should place some focus on who we are and what we are all about as Canadians, questions that you hear people ask rhetorically all the time. The census can help shed some light on those issues, but in the frontier world of political conservatives, we’re all on our own to try and figure it out. Canada is a complicated country. It has been our history to invite people here from all parts of the world to make

this country their home, raise a family, find a job and contribute to our nation. So while Day cites the fact that asking Canadians what religion, or better phrased what nationality, they come from, I think that is valuable information to know. How do you even attempt to define Canada’s multicultural identity when you don’t really know what that is. Day argues that simply saying you’re Canadian is sufficient, but just watch the fan response here to a World j Cup game to realize how naive that is. All of us have roots that come from somewhere else, as Canada is still a relatively young country from a historical perspective, and we continue to evolve and change. But an inaccurate census study robs Canadians of one way to better understand who we are and what we’re made of. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

B.C. will fall behind on its electricity needs if we don’t generate more power at home

t t

Electricity A16 According to BC Hydro’s annual reports, last year was the ninth year out of the past 10 years in r which BC Hydro has been a net importer of electricity and the situation this year will make it a full 10 years out of 11 in which t BC Hydro has had to import electricity to meet customer demand. The average person in B.C. probably has no idea how critical the situation has become in the last decade. The situation is growing more serious now that the province as a whole has also become a net importer of electricity. Research by professor George Hoberg of UBC’s Department of Forest Resources Management recently delved into the much-debated question of whether B.C. is a net importer or net exporter of electricity by reviewing all of the available technical data. From an objective academic perspective Hoberg determined that B.C., as a whole, is now a two per cent net importer of electricity. Hoberg presented his analysis at a well-attended panel discussion in June hosted by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions

at Vancouver’s Sheraton Wall Centre. I and several other BCCGE members were present in the audience of over 250 people as Hoberg indicated in his presentation, that B.C. can only be seen as a net exporter of electricity if B.C.’s entitlement to electricity generated in the United States under the Columbia River Treaty is added to the export total. But lumping the American-generated electricity B.C. is entitled to under the Columbia River Treaty, and calling it an export, is misleading and even somewhat disingenuous. You can’t really consider electricity generated in the USA under the Columbia River Treaty to be an electricity export from B.C. And we can’t conveniently bring that power into B.C. for our own use because there is no direct transmission line from the Columbia River generating facilities. That’s why Powerex has always sold it directly to the American market and generated considerable revenue for the people of this province.” Field says the sales revenue generated by Powerex from B.C.’s Columbia River entitlement

is one of the reasons electricity rates in B.C. are so much lower than prac-

tically anywhere else in North America. And even if a transmission line to B.C. from the Columbia River generating plants was constructed, the electricity B.C. would obtain would not be enough to match the growth in our province’s population over the next few decades, not to mention the loss of Powerex sales revenue that would cause hydro rates in B.C. to go up accordingly. It’s environmentally and economically unacceptable that an energy-rich province like B.C. is having to import electricity. We need to start tapping into the wealth of

reservoirs so that they’re fully charged for when we truly need that power.

hen the following particular fraud was first detected back in December 2009, a media release was sent out warning the public. Since that time, more reports of the same fraud have been reported to police. Once again, police would like to warn the public to not fall victim to this fraud. The senior gets a call from someone claiming to be a family member, a young adult who is supposedly incarcerated in jail elsewhere in Canada. In some instances, the caller has also claimed to be a lawyer representing the family member. The caller asks for $5,000 to be wired to them in order to facilitate their release from jail.

The next day the “grandson” called back thanking the victim, and asked for another $5,000 for court costs.

W ENDURANCE RIDING

Horse and rider pushed to the limits Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

It costs $20,000 US to send a horse overseas by FedEx. But local endurance horseback riders Gail Jewell and Elroy Karius have dodged that cost this year, as the World Equestrian Games visit North America for the first time. Jewell and Karius both qualified for the Canadian team during nationals held July 1 in New Lowell, Ont. The 100-mile race was completed in sections. The pair would ride out in a 12 to 20 mile loop from camp, return and hold with the race timer still running, and then go out again. “Technically, you have 24 hours to complete a 100-mile race,” said Jewell. At the level the pair are currently riding at, the distance usually takes anywhere from eight to 12 hours. Her goal was to come in under 12 hours and 18 minutes, in order to qualify the horse she was riding as an alternate for the World Equestrian Games. She was successful. Jewell said she is the only one on the team that has qualified several horses as backup. Karius and his horse Apache both qualified as the number one horse and rider in Canada. Jewell rides purebred Arabians, and has been involved in eventing and dressage events since she was eight years-old. But the path that led her to endurance racing came from her work as a veterinarian. Twelve years earlier, Jewell was vetting rides. She would work on site at endurance events with three or four other veterinarians as judges. They would examine horses periodically during

GAIL JEWELL and NL ‘Sassy’ Temptation will compete at the World Equestrian Games in endurance riding this fall in Kentucky. the race to monitor their health. “I literally woke up one morning and said, ‘Riding looks way more fun than vetting.’” Jewell noted her husband Elroy challenged her to start riding at a faster pace and competing at an elite level. Her current horse, Sassy, was 2008 national champion. “She has a resume,” laughed Jewell. She noted that most horses take six or seven seasons to reach the competitive level that Sassy has achieved in three seasons. “She consistently fin-

ishes in the top five in a race.” The races Sassy has been part of have a lineup of many more horses than the pair would face at local endurance rides. Jewell says endurance events taking place in Merritt and Rock Creek typically field 30 to 40 riders, while the pair have been competing in events with 90 to 100 riders. She noted there are more points in a field, but a larger race also helps racers ride at a higher level. As the speed of an endurance race increases, so do the challenges.

Jewell said riders also have to look after their horse and manage it when riding at higher speeds. There is a greater risk of injury, and there are metabolic risks as well, such as a horse getting overheated. Jewell said the races can occur in anything from freezing temperatures to hot conditions, with rain or snow. If the weather is cold, horses can stay warm while moving but riders need to take action as soon as they stop. “The minute they’re in, they’re double, tripleblanketed.”

The riders are hardly ever close to a stall or barn, and are normally camped in the middle of the bush. Jewell said that in hot weather, riders will dump buckets of cool water on the horses and scrape them off immediately. The horse’s body temperature will heat the water instantly, so the riders must scrape the water off and repeat. Whether hot or cold, the horse needs to be restored to optimum condition during the rest period. Jewell said riders will travel a set number of miles and then come back to hold at the camp, with the timer still running. “You have to get horses down to a pulse rate level before you can go back out.” A 100-mile race will be broken up into five or six sections, each with a brief rest period in between.

Getting the horse’s pulse rate down is accomplished in as little time as possible. “Your goal is under two minutes… Races are won and lost by this.” Jewell said a horse’s pulse rate will go from 140 to 60 beats per minute. “It’s pretty intense trying to get them down.” This year’s World Equestrian Games takes place in Lexington, Ken. Jewell and Karius qualified to go to the preride last year, when the venue is tested. While covering the same terrain that they will be racing on this year, the riders encountered monsoon season. Jewell said if the course had stayed dry, it could probably be done in eight hours. But torrential rains turned the ground underfoot into mud, with boggy conditions in some places.

The original eight water crossings became 20, as ditches and dry creek beds filled up with water. Jewell pointed out that while shortening the race while it is taking place is almost unheard of, the weather conditions caused the pre-ride event to be chopped down to 75 miles. “We’re hoping for drier weather, but we’ve done it at the worst we can see it.” Jewell added that Sassy excels in adverse conditions. She noted horses and riders from 40 countries will compete in the eight disciplines at the World Equestrian Games, which are usually held in Europe or the Middle East.

America for five straight days…they learn so much, so fast,” said Frei, who played at Georgia College and State, and coached at Reinhardt University. “Secondly, it’s an opportunity for our players to get some college exposure. “The coaches here are identifying talent, the college fastball world is small and word gets around. “Talent definitely gets missed here. There aren’t many opportunities for exposure in the Okanagan and this is a way to make up for that.” The guest coaches at camp—all connections of Frei’s during her time as a player and coach in the U.S.—were all-American pitcher Holly Currie from Auburn, Andrea Moss, an assistant coach at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Chris Wilcoxson from AuburnMontgomery in Alabama, and Dana Jackson, an as-

STAFF REPORTER

When it comes to fastball players in the Okanagan, Kelowna’s Joni Frei sees an abundance of untapped local talent. Recognizing and nurturing that talent was the concept behind Frei’s inaugural Next Level College Exposure Camp this week in Kelowna. The five-day session at High Noon Park drew about 30 girls, aged 13 to 17, from across the province—most from the Kelowna area—and featured instruction from Frei and four other highly-qualified coaches from south of the border. Frei, a former U.S. college player and NCAA coach, said a camp of this nature was long overdue for the valley and its aspiring young players. “Number one, our athletes here can get the best coaching there is in North

sistant at Gordon College in Massachusetts. Among local players to take in the five-day camp was Morgan Cederholm, a 16-year-old shortstop for the Kelowna bantam Heat, who would like nothing more than to play fastball while earning an education at an American school. Between the advanced level of coaching and learning more about the prospects of playing at a U.S. college, the camp was everything, and more, that Cederholm had hoped for. “The coaching is so personalized, I learned so much in a short time… simple things like my throwing improved so much,” said Cederholm. “In talking to them, hearing their stories, you begin to realize it really is possible, that you’re not that far off from being able to make the next step. “I’d love to go to a U.S.

ing trip. Among the several pieces of advice passed on by Andrea Moss was that every player at camp can have a future in American college ball. “The most important thing is for these girls to know that there is a home

Heat land two Vernon prospects Two Vernon volleyball players will hit the court for the UBC Okanagan Heat this fall. Head coach Greg Poitras announced the commitment of outside hitters Jordan Young and Greg Niemantsverdriet to the UBCO squad. “They are good kids in many ways. They are athletic and they have good arms.” Poitras noted the two both are competitive players, that will fit well in the program and commit to becoming as good of players as they can. “I think we got two special kids that will definitely help transition our program to the Canada West in 2011.” The 6-foot-3 Young captained the Fulton High School team as they

A RIDER CATCHES plenty of air during the grand opening of the Mountain Bike Skills Park on Hollywood Road last Sunday in Kelowna.

“UBCO has an outstanding volleyball program. I have watched the Heat team closely over the last three or four years and would be very proud to be part of that team.” Niemantsverdriet also attended Fulton. He was recruited by the UBC Thunderbirds in 2006, red-shirting one season and playing a second season with the Vancouver university team as they went to the CIS national championships. He was invited to junior national team tryouts in the summer of 2006. Niemantsverdriet has received several awards over his career, and is a three-time member of Team B.C. “The reason I’ve chosen UBCO over any other school is not just that

the volleyball program is renowned but attending this school allows me to be closer to family and friends,” he said. “This makes things even more exciting for me as a player and a student.” He noted he has lived in the Okanagan for many years and has grown a great relationship with coaching staff as well as current and past players. “I believe that I will be able to help the team reach its full potential and help take them to the next level. “Volleyball is only a small part as to why I’ve made UBCO my new home. “UBCO offers one of the best environmental science programs, making UBCO a great choice to continue my studies.”

Smith sets the pace for Lightning at nationals Represented by only eight swimmers, the Liquid Lightning made a huge splash at the Canadian Age Group Championships in Winnipeg. A small but elite group of female swimmers led LLSC to a 22nd place showing out of 189 swim clubs from across the country. Kierra Smith (16-

18) competed in five events, made finals and came home with five medals. She won silver in 200 IM, 200 Breastroke and 100 breastroke and bronze medals in 400 IM and 50 breastroke. Makayla Skrlac, 13, had eighth place finishes in the 400 IM, 50 breastroke and 200 breastroke. Jennifer Short, 15,

was fifth in the finals of the 200 breast stroke and eighth in 100 breastroke. Kosta Prodanovic, Christina Russo, Lacey Falkingham, Chantel Bayliss and Kate Aguiar also qualified for this meet and exceeded all expectations. “Everything came together for us this week with veterens Smith, Skr-

He finished second at club provincials in 2008 with the Kelowna Volleyball Club’s Kannoz team. He also played for Vernon during the U18 club season. “UBCO is, by far, the best university in our area, and most of B.C., offering any and all courses that I would be interested in,” Young said. “I know so many students who attend, or have attended, and all reports on classes, professors, support and facilities has been very highly recommended.

SHOWCASE W HOME DESIGN

Hints on creating an energy efficiency home

J��� P������� CONTRIBUTOR

The Lake County, Fla., home Paul Fallman shares with his wife and two daughters has 4,000 square feet of living space. Yet his electric bills have averaged just $180 a month so far this year, despite record-low winter temperatures and closeto-record summer highs. His natural-gas bill for two tankless water heaters and a fireplace averages $25 a month. “My focus with this house was energy efficiency,” said Fallman, owner of his own construction company in Clermont, Fla. “It’s so easy to do. It’s a great marketing angle. And it’s the right thing to do.” The key to the energy efficiency of the lakefront home, which is certified by the Florida Green Building Coalition, is its south-facing orientation, said Fallman, who has made green-building his specialty. Before starting construction, he commissioned a solar-path study to track the angle of the sun in winter and summer.

He used the information to design a home that would be flooded with sunlight during the cooler months, but shaded by porches, balconies and extra-wide roof overhangs when temperatures soar. “It’s the single thing a builder can do to make a home more efficient without much more expense,” he says. The three-garage home on the site of the historic Clermont Yacht Club, which was torn down in the early 1950s, also is angled to maximize views across twomile-wide Lake Minnehaha. Facing the lake on the first floor are the kitchen, dining room, living room and master suite, which either open onto screened porches or are shaded by wide roof overhangs and high-performance windows —tinted, Low-E4 and argon-filled. Upstairs, covered balconies or roof overhangs shade the windows and walls of the three bedrooms and loft area. An apartment above a second garage has similar features. In Florida, to receive certification from the green building coalition, a home must be inspected

MONTHLY ELECTRICITY bills in this 4,000-square-foot Florida home (right photo) average just $180, thanks to energy-efficient features such as shady porches, covered balconies, wide roof overhangs and high-performance Low-4E windows. The south-facing orientation of the lakefront home (left photo) helps keep the interior shaded, cool and energy-efficient. by a green certifier and an energy rater, Fallman says. The green certifier makes as many as 10 checks of the site and home before and during construction, checking for items such as site drainage and properly sealed plumbing pipes, doors and windows. The energy rater conducts a duct-blast test, blower-door test and thermal-envelope test to de-

termine how airtight the home is. The Fallman home has a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score of 62 out of 100. The lower the score, the more energy efficient the home. For a home to be Energy Star-rated, it must score 85 or lower. At present, about 70 per cent of the payback for building green is improved energy-efficiency, Fallman says.

Spending $3,000 to $5,000 on equipment upgrades and an additional $2,000 to $3,000 on green construction will pay for itself in five to 10 years, he figures. Certainly, better airhandling equipment cuts down on dust and indoor humidity; better insulation creates a quieter home; drip irrigation in the yard saves water. The Fallman home, which is on the market for

$1.1 million, also features these energy-efficient elements: • Fifty-year shingle roof with Icynene sprayfoam insulation, which: keeps cool air in, heat and dampness out; protects against dust and insects; and improves structural strength. • Concrete-block walls with rigid insulation on the first floor, and 2x6 frame with R-19 batt insulation on the second

floor. • Semi-air conditioned, 200-square-foot attic, which keeps ducts about 30 degrees cooler in the summer, so the airconditioner doesn’t have to work as hard. • Low-E4 windows with tinted, high-performance glass and wood frames, which don’t conduct heat. • Non-conductive fibreglass doors with insulated glass.

showcase W OF PRIME INTEREST

Renters should consider townhome or condo buying option Condominium or townhome living is a popular option for many as it can be a relatively carefree housing option. Interest in condominiums tends to grow with an influx now available on the market and relatively low mortgage rates. An option to seriously consider if you

are currently renting—a $200,000 mortgage today fixed for five years is under 900/month. There are several things you should be aware of when purchasing a condo or townhome. First, both are part of a collection of private dwellings called units. Each unit is owned

and registered in the name of the purchaser. Second, the building may include lobbies, hallways, recreations facilities, hallways and gardens. The ownership of the common elements is shared amongst the individual unit owners as is the cost for the operation,

maintenance and ongoing replacement. Each owner has an interest in these elements and the value of each particular unit is calculated in proportion to the value the unit has in relation to the total value of all units in the strata. This percentage is used to calculate the monthly strata fee that you must pay for upkeep. As well if there are any unforeseen expenses or shortfalls you will be required to pay your proportion of those in addition to your monthly strata obligation if the funds are not readily available in the reserve fund. You will be responsible for property taxes and typically they are less than if you own a home/lot. You will also have to purchase contents insur-

CONDOMINIUMS OR TOWNHOMES CAN BE AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE HIGHER COSTS OF OWNING AND MAINTAINING A HOME.

ance. You as an owner will purchase insurance for your personal property, any improvements and betterments made to the unit and personal liability. The cost is usually much less than if you were insuring a home on a lot. The strata also carries insurance coverage for the common areas and

the units and personal liability against claims for bodily injury and property damage occurring on the property, etc. Each strata is governed by its own unique rules, regulations and bylaws. You should carefully review and consider these bylaws and rules prior to purchasing. If you are purchasing a pre-owned condo/townhome you should also review the Yearend Financial Statements and Budget to determine the financial well being of the strata. An important part of the budget is the reserve fund. A portion of your strata fee is designated to the reserve fund and these funds are set aside to provide for major repairs over the life of the con-

dominium or townhome building. This fund ensures that the common elements will be maintained in good shape for the life of the project. As an individual owner you may be obliged to attend meetings and serve on the board or various committees. Condominiums or townhomes can be an alternative to the higher costs of owning and maintaining a home. The strata fee often includes services such as landscaping resulting in a more carefree lifestyle. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250-4708324) and Darwyn Sloat (250-718-4117). www.kelownahomemortgages.ca

Working with vintage appliances J���� K����� CONTRIBUTOR

Long before granite and stainless steel dominated kitchens, chrome mixed with high-gloss, playful color was the look. These kitchens and their appliances of years past have droves of fans. The owners of vintage appliances are a proud lot, quick to show off a refrigerator’s special features, discuss the steps they take to keep a stove shiny or share a charming story about a previous owner. Many aren’t afraid

to fiddle with this or that part to get their equipment back in prime working order, and the ones who leave repairs to the experts have had little trouble finding a professional to get their appliances humming once more. While all of the vintage appliances we found are in older homes, there are plenty of collectors who put vintage appliances or reproductions in new construction. Meet three homeowners who live with appliances that have sailed past the half-century mark. A red showstopper:

1950s-era Chambers highback stove The proud owners: Van and Elsa Moushegian of northwest Dallas Its colorful past: When the Moushegians bought their house, the seller was sure to tell them about how, when he was a boy, his father gave his mother the stove to mark a special occasion. The seller had moved the stove to a couple of other houses but didn’t have a place to take it to the next, so it stayed and became the Moushegians’. Bells and whistles: Instead of four burners, the stove has three. In the

place where the fourth would go is a deep well, which works like a builtin slow cooker. “I’ll do tamales or beans in there,” Elsa says. “I can put them in before I go to bed and cook them overnight or start cooking them before I go to work in the morning.” There’s also a broiler and griddle. The oven has a retained-heat cooking option that the Moushegians rave about. After preheating the oven at a very high heat, such as 500 F, they’ll put a roast or some other type of meat in and keep it on for about 20 minutes be-

LEE AND MELISSA Higginbotham own a working vintage 1956-57 GE refrigerator and a GE stove and oven, which came with the house they bought over 20 years ago. Here, a close-up of the vintage countertop stove can be seen. fore turning it off. The meat stays in the oven and the door stays shut for several hours. “Steam comes out when you open the oven,” Van says. “Because it’s so well-insulated, it all comes out steaming and supertender.” Up and running: “The real beauty of the stove is the way that it’s so easy to clean—it all comes apart so easy,” Van says. Once she started cooking on it, it was love. “It cooks better, and I’m happier with this stove than I was my previous modern one.” *** Pretty in pink: 1956 or ‘57 General Electric refrigerator and oven The proud owners: Lee and Melissa Higginbotham of northwest Dallas Its colorful past: Lee

Higginbotham inherited the pink appliances when he bought the 1957 house from a friend’s grandmother in the ‘80s. It was a model home when the neighbourhood was first developed. The pink sets the tone of entire kitchen; Melissa’s mother, an artist, painted the cabinets to complement the pastel appliances. Bells and whistles: “It was the latest and greatest that 1957 had to offer,” Lee Higginbotham says. The refrigerator features a foot pedal beneath the door that opens the door for cooks who have their hands full. The pastel appliance, complete with turquoise lining, has a copper lazy Susan for shelves, and the shelf height is adjustable. Up and running: Though the oven is 30 to 50 degrees off and its

clock no longer works, the Higginbothams have learned to adjust. The fridge, which Lee’s partial to, has required only normal maintenance, he says. That includes defrosting it every so often and cleaning the back coils. Sticking with vintage: Lee says he’ll cry on the day the fridge no longer works. He keeps an even older fridge, which isn’t running, in case he needs to mine it for parts for his beloved pink GE. The Higginbothams have a thing for vintage, but only in the kitchen. “We had no problem replacing our pink bathroom,” Melissa says. They have a few other pink-and-copper vintage accessories for the kitchen, including the canister set that came with the house, a cake carrier and an ice crusher.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen feast outdoors This is a glorious time of year to enjoy taking your food outdoors; to cook and eat it outdoors and to have a glass of B.C. VQA wine with it too. And there are lots of local restaurants who serve their patrons outside, on the sidewalk, a patio, or a terrace, including the Vineyard Terrace Restaurant at CedarCreek Estate Winery, from which you can also enjoy one of the best views in the area. Chef Judith Knight offers a simply divine collection of meat and seafood, fresh, local vegetables and fruit which she turns into delectable creations almost too attractive to eat. But eat them you must, because they are always tantalizing to the taste buds, and a combination of whatever’s in season nearby, so it’s at the peak of perfection. You can also enjoy an outdoor concert, with Jessie Farrell performing Thurs., Aug. 19. You may combine it with dinner for a full evening of entertainment. In fact, the restaurant is not only open for lunch this year, but also for dinner Friday evenings Aug. 6 to 20. There are also outdoors concerts at Mission Hill Family Estate’s outdoor amphitheatre, with Afro-Cuban jazz musician Wil Campa’s unique voice and sound Sat., Aug. 7 and Juno-award-winning jazz guitarist Jesse Cook performing Friday, Sept. 3. UBC Okanagan is also offering an opportunity to enjoy wine outdoors, and learn more about it, at the UBC Okanagan Wine School Aug. 3 to 6 with Rhys Pender, who just achieved his Master of Wine designation from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. Congratulations Rhys! He’s also involved in organizing this year’s second Okanagan Feast of Fields, Sunday, Aug. 22 at Brock Farm in Okanagan Falls, from 1 to 5 p.m. Last year’s event was sold out, and it was well worth the price of admission. Funds raised go toward the work of FarmFolk/CityFolk. Described as a wandering harvest festival, you can meet winemakers and food producers from all over the valley. Go to the website for details: www.feastofields.com Congratulations also to winemaker Howard Soon and his crew at Peller Estates and Sandhill Wines, as well as to George and Trudy Heiss and their family of Gray Monk Estate Winery. Both wineries received Lieutenant Governor’s Awards of Excellence this week, three of just 11 awards from 281 wines submitted. The winning wines were the 2007 Sandhill Single Block Merlot, the 2008 Peller Private Reserve Riesling and the Gray Monk 2007 Odyssey Brut.

Judith's Mussels & Chorizo The best chorizo I’ve found is from TBones. It’s nice and spicy but not fatty. This is a really yummy combination of flavours, with just a chunk of crusty bread on the side, or you could serve it over pasta. 1 lb. (454 g) penne pasta 1 lb. (454 g) spicy chorizo sausage 2 tbsp. (30 ml) shallots 2 garlic cloves 1 tbsp. (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil 1/2 c. (125 ml) CedarCreek pinot gris 3 lb. (1.5 kg) West Coast mussels 1/2 c. (125 ml) CedarCreek pinot gris 1/3 c. (75 ml) fresh parsley 1/3 c. (75 ml) fresh cilantro 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh lemon juice Cook Italian penne pasta according to package instructions, until al dente and drain. Meanwhile chop up chorizo sausage, and mince the shallots and garlic. Clean and de-beard the mussels. Discard

any that stay open if tapped on the counter. Heat the sausage over medium-high heat in the olive oil in a frypan for a few minutes, adding the shallots after a minute, then the garlic for the last 30 seconds. Add the wine and simmer for a few minutes until it has reduced by half. Set aside and steam the mussels in the other half-cup of wine, or water, for about three or four minutes or until they open. Strain off the liquid and remove half of them from their shells, putting those into the chorizo mixture. You may also add the liquid the mussels were cooked in, but strain it first to avoid any grit which may have been left behind. Chop the fresh herbs and add all but a spoonful of the parsley, saving it to garnish. Serve the chorizo and mussel mixture over the pasta, sprinkling with the fresh lemon juice and garnishing with the mussels still in their shells and the chopped parsley. Serves 4-6.

W PEACHLAND

Excavation continues at gravel pit Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

Lawyers for the District of Peachland hope to be in B.C. Supreme Court next week seeking an injunction against the operator of a controversial gravel pit. Peachland Self Storage Ltd., which has been granted an operation permit from the B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, continued work at the site on McDougald Road despite a district-issued stop work order. Ten days ago, Peachland council voted to allow district solicitors to

petition the court for an injunction against the gravel pit operators. Reasons given were that, regardless approval from the ministry, the municipality has its own bylaws and regulations that must be followed. Mayor Keith Fielding viewed the gravel pit site from the air Thursday morning in a helicopter, with a professional photographer on board. Fielding said the photographer was gathering evidence for the district’s legal team. “The lawyer is very keen to go to court with the photographic evidence we collected today, as

DESPITE a stop work order from the District of Peachland, aggregate was being moved around the site of a gravel pit off McDougald Road on Thursday. well as a geotechnical report from Golder and Associates,” said Fielding. Fielding said previously he hoped to see the injunction request in court this past week, but said Thursday that lawyers

wanted more time to put their case together. “We are having a special council meeting on Tuesday,” said Fielding. That meeting will be held in-camera so that council members can be

briefed by solicitors. Fielding said he hopes the matter will be in court this coming week. “In the meantime, the owners are continuing to work on the site and thumb their noses at our

bylaws,” said Fielding. Peachland has a restrictive earthworks control bylaw that limits the amount of material that can be removed from properties unless a permit is issued. The town re-

cently passed a bylaw limiting heavy truck traffic on Princeton Avenue and is in the process of passing an even more restrictive soil removal bylaw. edit@kelownacapnews.com

W BLANKET POLICY

Last shots taken as secondary suite issue goes to council Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

A last ditch move by several West Kelowna councillors to stall the closure of a public hearing Wednesday failed, so now the fate of secondary suites in West Kelowna is solely in the hands of council. About 80 people turned out for the twohour hearing at Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary School. Although several of the more than 30 speakers urged council to delay closing the hearing so that more residents would have an opportunity to give their input,

council voted against a public hearing retake. Only Couns. Rosalind Neis and Carol Zanon voted to leave the hearing open until an August date. At issue was whether the district should change its existing secondary suite policy. Current rules require a property owner to go through a public hearing process to have a legal secondary suite. Proposed are changes to the district’s zoning bylaw that would allow secondary suites in virtually every residential zone, subject to conditions. West Kelowna has 28 legal secondary suites on

the books, with 17 applications pending, according to Nancy Henderson, planning manager. There are, however, somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 illegal secondary suites in the district. “This topic has been before council about seven times in the last year,” Henderson told council. Currently a homeowner must go through a rezoning and public hearing process to have a legal secondary suite. Proposed zoning bylaw changes would allow secondary suites in properties zoned A1, RU1 through RU6 and R1, so long as the suites conformed to a set

of conditions. Conditions proposed include: • A maximum of one secondary suite will be allowed per parcel • The registered owner of the property must occupy either the primary dwelling unit or the suite • Off street parking must be provided • Suites may not be used for tourist or short term accommodation • Entrance to the suite must be separate. In the case where a homeowner wishes to put in a legal secondary suite but will not be one of the occupiers, the homeowner would have to apply for

which would be subject to a public hearing. “I’d like to have more input in on it,” said John Burke, who added he only found out about the proposed zoning changes three weeks ago. Larry Mintz was the first of several speakers who told council that approving the zoning bylaw change would take away his rights to comment on individual suite approvals. “The measure will irrevocably remove my right as a property owner to comment, object or advise council with respect to proposed secondary suites near my home,” wrote George and Viv-

Secondary suites will “bring in less desirable people,” said Brian Holly. “There’s lots of homeowners that are bad neighbours,” countered Peter Wannop. Phillip Aikens was one of the few renters to speak at the public hearing, saying he has lived in illegal suites all over the country. “It will be novel to live in a legal suite,” Aikens

The Westbank branch of the Okanagan Regional Library system is too small as there may be a need to look for bigger digs or even a second branch location in the future, according to the ORL executive director. “I think that’s the way it’s going to turn out in the end,” Lesley Dieno told West Kelowna council Tuesday.

WE’RE HOPING TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION (TO MOVE THE LIBRARY OR OPEN A SECOND BRANCH) THIS FALL. Lesley Dieno, Okanagan Regional Library executive director

Invited by council to talk about the library’s plans in the future, Dieno said the Westbank branch has been in its current Westridge Mall location for about 15 years. The lease on the current location is up in February 2011 and Dieno said ORL is looking into options for the Westbank branch. At 6,000 square-feet in size, the Westbank branch serves approximately 20,000 people. Dieno said the library board typically likes to see a library near the range of a half square foot of space for every person in

a service area. That would mean a nominal size of 10,000 sq. ft. for the Westbank branch—4,000 sq. ft. more than what the branch has now. There are 12,500 people signed up at the Westbank branch. Dieno said 125,000 people walk through the library branch doors each year. The branch carries about 40,000 items at any given time and handles up to a quarter million loans per year. Dieno said ORL likes retail areas for its branches that are near transit and that offer plenty of free parking. Malls work well for libraries because people get out of their cars, according to Dieno. ORL staff is researching possibilities at the moment. “We’re hoping to make a recommendation this fall (to the library board),” Dieno said. Ultimately, the library may stay where it is, according to Dieno. She added ORL typically looks at five-year leases with options. Coun. Rosalind Neis asked if ORL is looking at any available spots on WFN land. Dieno responded that ORL has a service contract for WFN IR9 and IR10 but it is at a pilot project level. Negotiations are underway to make WFN full members in the ORL system, said Dieno. The library should consider a lease extension until West Kelowna has completed its Westbank Town Centre plan, suggested Coun. Gord Milsom. edit@kelownacapnews.com

Destination: Unknown Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

A 30-day warning period for houseboat owners to remove their craft from Gellatly Bay expired Thursday at midnight but that didn’t mean a fleet of tugs and towboats were set to descend on the bay Friday morning. By Thursday afterfnoon, just six houseboats out of dozens that were moored in Gellatly Bay remained. A seventh was seen leaving the area southbound under its own steam. Previously the District of West Kelowna gave houseboat owners a 30-day warning to remove their boats from the bay or face having them towed and impounded at the owner’s cost. “We have an enforcement strategy in place,” said Kirsten Jones, comtmunications coordinator f k

for the district. Friday morning at 9:30, district bylaw officers, with assistance from the RCMP, were to visit each moored craft in the bay and attach a Notice of Non-Compliance. “The notice is very clear what we are going to do,” said Jones. The remaining houseboats have until Tuesday to get out of Gellatly Bay or the next step in the strategy will proceed. That will involve lawyers for the district petitioning the BC Supreme Court for an injunction to forcibly remove the boats. “Once we get that order, we will tow them,” Jones said. In the mean time, along with the Notice of Non-Compliance, Jones said houseboat owners will be given an offer from a contractor to tow their boats elsewhere. “We know of one guy

them. “On Tuesday, we will again assist anyone who wants help,” said Jones. Also required to vacate the bay are three or four pleasure boats that have been moored for some time.

Green Bay residents keen to see their part of Okanagan Lake returned to a more natural state were blocked Tuesday by budget concerns, despite tthe amount of work that’s gone into their project. “The residents of the Green Bay area have witnessed the gradual and progressive filling-in of the bay,” wrote Gary Gylytiuk, president of the Green Bay Home Owners Association, to council recently. “This is primarily as a kresult of a dysfunctional and under-designed storm water system upland of the bay,” said Gylytiuk. Armed with a 12-page report, Green Bay residents met with West Kel-

al aids • Maintain and enhance the environmentally sensitive areas and natural appeal of the bay area. Green Bay must be dredged, according to the report, which has been sent to Transport Canada. Further, the district needs to work on storm water management upland of the bay. Council was told by staff that they have looked at the report and the problems facing Green Bay

residents. Currently the district is undertaking a storm water management plan. Storm water management is not a strategic priority for council this year, said CAO Jason Johnson. Council promised to continue working with the association on their concerns and to address the hundreds of thousands of dollars in potential costs during 2011 budget deliberations. edit@kelownacapnews.com

“If you’re not going to enforce it, don’t pass it,”

Soils Removal and Deposit Bylaw PUBLIC MEETING The District of West Kelowna is holding a public information meeting regarding the proposed Soils Removal and Deposit Bylaw No. 0109. The meeting will take place Wednesday, August 4 at 6:30 p.m. at Mount Boucherie Secondary School in the Multipurpose Room, 2751 Cameron Road, West Kelowna. Staff would like to discuss the numerous written comments which have been received. The proposed bylaw can be viewed on the District’s website at www.districtofwestkelowna.ca District of West Kelowna Building & Regulatory Services Department 2760 Cameron Road West Kelowna, B.C.V1Z 2T6 Phone (778) 797-8820 Email: info@districtofwestkelowna.ca Website: www.districtofwestkelowna.ca

W MP’S REPORT

warned Abe Goodman. Henderson said it will likely be the end of August before council is asked to give third reading to the proposed bylaw changes. If council does pass the bylaw amendment, the 1,000-plus illegal secondary suites in West Kelowna will still be illegal, according to Henderson. Several speakers said the timing of the public hearing, being held in the middle of summer and just before a long weekend, was wrong and that there should be more opportunities for others in the community to express their opinions on the proposed zoning bylaw changes. At least six speakers said the issue is sufficiently important to warrant a district-wide referendum. “We don’t govern by referendum,” Coun. Bryden Winsby said during debate on whether to close the public hearing or not. In a move seen by some at the public hearing as a set-up question for district staff to answer, Coun. David Knowles asked Henderson what it would take for the district to process applications under the existing rules for all of the illegal secondary suites in West Kelowna. Henderson said it takes approximately 25 hours of staff time per application, so one full time staff member could take care of 77 applications in a year. As well, he said each application would be before council a minimum of three times, so council would be dealing with secondary suite issues more than 200 times each year and there would be about 10 secondary suite items on every council agenda. edit@kelownacapnews.com

Census form firestorm T revor Linden, Duncan Keith, Pat Quinn and many other hockey greats lit up our constituency this weekend and what a show they all put on for us. Thanks to the tireless energy and great organizing of our own local legendary hockey promoters like Neil Jamieson and Scott Carter, we enjoyed a hockey feast of stories and action. One of the surprise highlights of the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame festivities was the documentary video (and presence) of Larry Kwong. If you haven’t heard of him, don’t feel badly. Sadly, most of the guests at the event hadn’t either, including me. This Okanagan star began his hockey career in poverty in the 1930s. He fought ethnic barriers all of his athletic life. Due to his tremendous skills and unshaken courage, and facing discriminatory taunts all the way, he eventually made it to the NHL. It was not a pretty scene then. As a matter of fact he played literally for a ‘New York minute’ and was then sent back to the minors. Undeterred, he went on to a stellar career in UK and European leagues. He served notice in those foreign lands that Canadian players would be a force to be dealt with. He overcame disappointments and heartbreaks that would have stopped lesser young men in their tracks. Finally, at almost 80 years of age, he was duly honoured here among other legends of the game at the awards ceremony. He had truly blazed the way and taken the hits so that my grandkids and yours will never have to

Stockwell Day face the painful barriers that kept him from every young kid’s dream, the NHL. ••• OK, so what’s with all this census ‘long form’ uproar? First, as far as the uproar, it’s not exactly deafening here in the sundrenched Okanagan and Nicola Valleys. And in my several meetings this week in places from Vancouver to Kitimat to Prince Rupert, it was mentioned a grand total of twice. Not saying people don’t care about the issue. Just saying it wasn’t rocking them to the core of their being. But here’s the thing that does bother people. The long form threatens 20 per cent of all Canadians (that is how many are ‘selected’) with jail or other penalties if they don’t cough up the info. Remember, these aren’t people who are applying for permits or benefits. These are citizens just minding their own business. If you are among the groups of people who are demanding this free info I have a question for you based on past ‘quizzes.’ Do you think it is right that you can threaten your neighbour with jail time if she doesn’t tell you if she has mental issues or not? Or who does what chores in the house?

Or whether she is a Jew or not? Don’t you find that one even a little bit chilling? And how do you think my grandkids feel (their grandparents are Asian) when you tell them in the long form that it’s not good enough for them to just say they’re ‘Canadian?’ I actually think most people demanding this information are well meaning. However, good intentions do not excuse bad policy. They can lead to even worse policies. Think about it. In 2001 there were 21,000 Canadians so upset about religious sounding questions they declared themselves to be Jedi Knights! Makes me feel better to know we’ll be protected from Darth Vader. Now if we could just protect ourselves from government. Our proposal is to increase the number of Canadians who get the long form, but drop the jail threats (I mean, even prisoners of war only have to give their name, rank and serial number). That way we’ll still get the same amount of info back, but it will be voluntary and more honest (and probably show a few less members of the church of Jedi). ••• And talking about firestorms, how ’bout a big shout out to the emergency fire crews and those courageous diving water bombers. On Sunday they knocked out a potentially devastating fire off Westlake Road in record time. We salute you… again!

W PERSONAL INJURY

We just don’t get that a tragedy can happen to us I

had been looking forward to writing my column this week. I had a fun topic, thanks to a fight for justice that took eight years and three levels of court to achieve; a true David and Goliath spectacle that ended with Goliath laying sprawled on the ground where he belongs, after having spent likely hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars. You’ll have to wait until next week for that one. The day before my column deadline, I was hit with a far less fun topic that I felt compelled to write about. It’s personal. One of my wife’s longest and best friends, Shauna, lives near Edmonton with her husband, Gary, and 10-year-old son, Payton. Gary and I got to know each other over the years, through our wives, though our connections have been few and far between. I first got to know Gary perhaps 11 or 12 years ago when the four of us spent a weekend together to celebrate Shauna and Gary’s wedding. Gary is an amazing guy. He’s a firefighter, in fact a fire captain, at a fire station in Edmonton, though has always held other jobs on the side as well. He’s a loving husband and the kind of dad I’m sure every 10-yearold boy would want. He describes himself accurately in the first part of his Facebook profile: “I’m a giver…not a taker! Can’t stand selfish, dishonest, lazy people.” It’s hard to be angry with Gary, even though he’s caused a lot of emotional pain to those close to him. He must have had the attitude that we all share to a certain extent of: It won’t happen to me, when he failed to put his seat belt on. Perhaps that comes from a career of being called to help out to save lives at countless fires, car crashes and other disasters. He’s also the kind of guy used to pushing limits, an example being that

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott he weathered Hells Angels scrutiny for creating a firefighter motorcycle club, the Smokeeaters, complete with club patches on their leather jackets. Apparently, the Angels have a sensitivity around other motorcycle clubs with patches. Speed is believed to have been a factor of Gary losing control of his vehicle in ideal driving conditions. It was a single vehicle crash. He didn’t hurt anyone else, physically, even though his body was thrown 30 metres from the vehicle, over the heads of two municipal workers. The emotional pain started about 10 minutes later when Shauna and

S

Payton happened upon the aftermath. It’s hard to be angry with a man who gave so much of himself, over his 51-year life, in so many ways. But I am. We have lost a beautiful human being, and it’s all your fault, Gary, you son of a bitch. Please, let’s all learn from this. Let something good come from this tragedy. Yes, it CAN happen to you, to me, to your dad, so insist that everyone put their damned seat belt on and slow the hell down. What drives me nuts is that there are so many lessons, so many crashes, so many fatalities. Why is there so little learning? This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna. paul@hlaw.ca

Bravery by locals should be recognized The District of West Kelowna should make sure those in the community who commit acts of bravery are recognized, according to Coun. Carol Zanon. “Bravery is a selfless act,” Zanon told council Tuesday. The councillor proposed that a committee of council be set up to figure out how best to recognize those who act in a heroic manner. Zanon said the district could look at creating its own award for recognition purposes or could come up with a policy of forwarding names

ample of two RCMP officers who recently rescued an elderly woman from the threat of the Seclusion Bay fire as being likely recipients of a district recognition effort.

Council unanimously supported Zanon’s recommendation. A committee will be struck to look into how best to recognize acts of bravery and valour in the district.

W FIRE

‘I just started yelling help, help, help’ Roger Knox VERNON MORNING STAR

Getting out of her car at her Herry Road home in the BX Tuesday afternoon, Fay Hutchinson heard crackling. Her next door neighbour, Greg Bannister, thought somebody was barbecuing with briquettes. Both neighbours quickly realized what they were smelling was smoke coming from shrubs on fire at a home across the way. “I could smell smoke and I spoke with the neighbour and we thought something was wrong,” said Hutchinson. “I just started yelling, ‘help, help, help,’ and ran inside and called 911.” Bannister, newly ar-

rived in Vernon for just two weeks with his family from Cloverdale, and his neighbour across the street, Dwayne Remple, saw shrubs on the western side of the Herry Road home consumed in fire. Bannister strung three hoses together and Remple, who was on his cell phone trying to find someone to pick up his kids from day camp, brought his water hoses over, and the pair started to water down the cedar shrubs until the BX-Swan Lake volunteer firefighters arrived on scene. “We got to the driveway and just started throwing water on the bushes, doing what we could,” said Bannister. “The smoke was getting pretty thick. Somebody loaned me a wet T-shirt

to put over my face so I could keep going at it. “We didn’t get a lot of bush fires in Cloverdale.” Remple said things could have been a lot worse as a slight wind was blowing at the time. “It was blowing from across the lake toward us, so it was a blessing it was blowing away from the homes,” he said. BX-Swan Lake firefighters arrived quickly at

the home, in the 6800 block of Herry Road, and contained the blaze to the shrubs. “These things go up like gasoline,” said incident commander Kevin McKay of the dozen or so shrubs torched by the fire. “When we got here there was a lot of thick smoke and some minor flame.” McKay said the blaze was still under investigation, but firefighters were looking at a couple of burn barrels located in front of a garage at the home as a possible source of the fire. The garage was a wooden structure and both it and the log home had cedar shake roofs. “Things could have been a lot worse if a spark or two got onto those shakes,” said McKay. edit@kelownacapnews.com

W KEEPING FIT

Can too much exercise be harmful? I

t seems like the fitness industry and health care professionals are always telling us to exercise more. What happens though, if we take exercise to the extreme? Is it OK to perform hours of cardio every single day? When something is good for us we generally will try to incorporate it into our lives in order to improve our health. Eat more veggies. Drink more water. Strength train. Stretch. Perform daily aerobic activity. Whenever possible we do these things because we know that they will provide us with energy, decreased risk of many diseases and even improved our longevity and quality of life. While daily activity is recommended and beneficial to overall health, there are a few people that take this to the extreme. In doing so they could be actually risking their wellbeing, not improving it. For the most part excessive cardio is done because the participant wants to lose weight. It may be that they are dieting and want to speed up weight loss by complementing nutrition with fat burning cardiovascular exercise. It could also be that they are trying to reverse the results of over-eating that has occurred just prior to the workout. For these people it is a punishment—doing the time for committing the crime. For yet another group of people, excessive aerobic exercise is an addic-

FITNESS ZONE

Nina Heyes tion. Not unlike anorexia or bulimia, the participant becomes fixated and obsessed with weight loss and will stop at nothing to continue the path of their own self-destructive behavior. In fitness centers we see women, and yes, some men, who will spend hours at the club working out like maniacs only to come back a few hours later and repeat the same routine. They can do this three or four times a day. They aren’t necessarily extremely thin. Just as bulimics can appear average or even slightly over weight, excessive exercisers come in all shapes and sizes. They will sometimes appear unwell with pale, sallow skin tone and sunken eyes. If they aren’t eating enough to sustain this much activity they will indeed be underweight, perhaps to the point of being very unhealthy. Extreme caloric restriction with too much exercise can cause catastrophic issues including cardiac arrest and organ failure which could be fatal. From a fitness employee standpoint the situation is difficult. While we try to observe the participant’s right to privacy it is hard to ignore the

health dangers they are imposing on themselves. Ethically and even legally we feel obliged to discuss the issue to protect them from serious injury or illness. This is not always easy. There is most often denial and even anger when an over-exerciser is confronted. I have heard of participants that have joined two or three clubs in order to avoid being noticed in j their marathon work out routines. They will simply hop from one facility to another, accumulating several hours of exercise every single day. Take an honest look at your exercise routine to assess the possibility of over-exercising. Take at least one day off per week and do not train at extremely high intensity for every workout. Be sure and get sufficient nutrition—carbs, protein and healthy fat along with ample water. It can be easy to get swept up in the excitement of losing weight and, of course, we have all had an over-indulgent weekend when we were quite resigned to doing a little extra cardio to counter the effects. It’s when we become obsessed with weight loss through exercise that we may be putting our health in jeopardy and we need to be careful not to let this happen. Moderation is the key to success.

W HOME DECORATING

W VERNON

Decorating pulls together your at-home wedding

Vernon city councillor supports voters’ right to toss the elected

I

t’s that time of year that weddings are in the parks, wineries and resorts. However, if you are the kind of person that wants an intimate wedding and reception in your own home oasis, here are some great ideas for décor.

SEATING

Let’s commence with the guest area. Seating for many is a concern as there are elderly, new mothers, or distant travelers who just wish to sit rather than stand at an informal function such as this. It is important that their needs are not overlooked. Folding chairs are a great way to facilitate more people than you may already have seating for. These chairs can easily be obtained at JFSK or Ikea. They are affordable and can be reused. You can also rent them. Then what about fancying them up? To do this you can rent table cloths to wrap them, or purchase two-metre squares of fabric and tie them around the chairs with broad fabric or synthetic ribbon. If you are a quilter and used to working with fabric, buying the fabric is a better idea. When you go into your retailer they have all fabrics colour coded for you. They are all similar in colour and vary in design. This will create a unified appearance and still allow you to have your patch work quilt of varied colours. Later, this quilt can be laid upon the master bed to remind you of the delightful day you shared with friends and family that day.

DECORATIVE TOUCHES

Sallie Ritchey a dear girlfriend who is a wine glass or beer stein advocate, you can rent or go synthetic for the day. These are not a waste as they are recyclable and the extras can be used for several camping trips. When I’m camping, I love a good glass for wine.

CEREMONY

Thirdly, consider the ceremonial area. It is important that you make this final selection closer to the day, as the daylight will vary from a plan made over six to 12 months before. Select a spot that is not in direct sunlight for the bride or groom, so you are not squinting with your eyes, yet not in deep shadows so that your guests can’t take pictures during the ceremony, and have to Photoshop it later, turning your deep purple to lavender. The time of the day will also play an important role. If you are celebrating this union in August, you may wish to have a later in the day

celebration. The shadows are a bit longer, but the heat intensity is not as extreme. A white tent over the bride and groom is a tremendous asset. Not only does it offer shade but light control, as it acts as a diffuser of light, and fans light evenly over the couple. If your wedding is to be indoors then these factors are not as drastic. For September or October ceremonies you may wish to consider an earlier afternoon celebration. Again, it’s in your home, and you may remember the garden areas that are most accommodating for time of day, and location. Remember to always look into a tent. Whether it is 30 C or only 15 C, it offers shelter from a sudden thundershower on a hot summer’s evening, from direct sun and gives you that extra space. The tent can also be decorated with ties that match the chairs. This creates unification throughout the wedding décor, where photographs are welcome at every turn.

VERNON MORNING STAR

A Vernon councillor insists electors should be able to toss local politicians from office part way through a term. Coun. Bob Spiers has asked his colleagues to discuss the provincial government’s decision to extend municipal terms from three to four terms, and he says the concept of recall should also be considered. “They (voters) should have the right to recall

allow politicians, and particularly new ones, to become familiar with their duties and tackle major issues, Spiers says some residents are questioning why there’s no way to get rid of a politician that raises concerns. “It’s a simple control mechanism,” he said of recall. Spiers also wonders why the process leading up to changes to the Local Government Act wasn’t more broad-based. “Very little input has come from individual people.”

Vernon council will discuss the issue at a future date, but already Mayor Wayne Lippert has expressed opposition to a recall mechanism. “For a council, there’s six councillors and a mayor. They all make a decision,” he said, adding that it’s hard to hold just one official responsible for unpopular actions. “If it’s an electoral area director, an MLA or an MP, there is only one of them, but the idea of a council is for differing opinions.”

W SUMMER TRAINING

Royal LePage hosts popular Hockey Greats camp Chance for recreational players to get on the ice and socialize with former stars of the game

‘‘

ALL THE PEOPLE WHO CAME LAST YEAR WERE JUST RAVING ABOUT HOW GREAT IT WAS. Teresa Johnston, communications coordinator

HOCKEY GREATS FANTASY CAMP sponsor Bob Bourne played for the NewYork Islanders when the team brought in four Stanley Cups. SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS

Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The ice at Royal LePage will soon feel the skates of hockey legends during an upcoming charity event. The third annual Hockey Greats Fantasy Camp is a gathering of hockey fans and former NHL players as a benefit for the Rick Hansen Foundation. Communications coordinator Teresa Johnston noted that sponsor Bob Bourne played for the New York Islanders when the team brought in four Stanley Cups. The camp begins Aug. 4, with a game on Aug. 7 at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna. Johnston said the event attracted close to 500 people last year. “All the people who

came last year were just raving about how great it was.” The former pro NHL players attending signed

autographs and talked to the kids. “They still have lots of fans out there.” Johnston said the four

day event brings people from across Canada to take part in hockey and socialize with some of the legends of the game.

The camp often appeals to avid hockey fans who play the game recreationally. She added the camp is more about socializing

with the former players. “They’re just hanging out with these guys.” She noted that the camp draws hockey fans from different walks of life, and gives them the opportunity to spend some time talking to and hearing the stories of former pro players. Close to 40 skaters will scrimmage, drill and take part in the game with the former NHLers. Bourne said he had been considering the event for a couple of years before it first came to be. The former Islander’s son was born with spina bifida and has coped with the condition all his life. “We’ve done a lot of charity work over the years,” said Bourne. He noted that formerly he had been running a yearly golf tournament, but had let it slide as he got into coach-

ing. To get back into fundraising, Bourne took inspiration from a similar event in Ontario. “It is literally five days of so much fun.” He pointed out that for most of the attendees, the draw is the chance to sit around in the evening with hockey legends and hear their stories. “That, to me, is one of the biggest attractions.” Many of the players taking part are people Bourne faced off with or against during his time on pro ice. Besides Bourne, attendees this year are Dave Semenko, Dale Hawerchuk, Bryan Trottier, Clark Gillies, Billy Smith, Steve Shutt, Cliff Ronning, Ron Flockhart, Doug Bodger, Gary Nylund and Larry Melnyk. msimmons @kelownacapnews.com

W KIDS NEVER GO OUT

These days children are afraid of natural world W

hen I was growing up in London, Ontario, in the early 1950s, back doors would flap open between 5:30 and 6 p.m., and parents would call Johnny or Mary to come home for dinner. We’d be out playing in the park, empty lot, or nearby ditch or creek. Back then, there wasn’t a TV station in London, and the few folks with TV sets had to capture signals from Cleveland or Detroit and watch shadowy black-and-white images made worse by electronic snow. There were no computers, cell phones, iPods, or digital anything. Our fun was outdoors. Now, according to author Richard Louv, only six per cent of nine- to 13-year-old children in the U.S. play outside in a typical week. This is reflected by a dramatic decline in fishing, swimming and even biking. Louv, cofounder of rthe Children and Nature Network, noted that in t

f

r

David Suzuki San Diego, “90 per cent of inner-city kids do not know how to swim” and “34 per cent have never been to the beach.” I live near the ocean in Vancouver, and when my children were in primary school, I would watch the tide charts for exceptionally low tides so I could take my daughters’ classes to the beach. It always surprised me to see how many of the kids had never been to a “wild” beach. Some were timorous about walking about in the muck of a tidal flat. Most had never rolled over a rock to find crabs, blennies, and anemones. Often, the immediate reaction was “Yuk,” but I never found a child who wasn’t entranced within a

few minutes to find these natural wonders. Now that I’m an old man, my sentiments may simply reflect nostalgia for the “good old days.” Children today find it hard to fathom the world of my childhood. “What did you do?” they ask in amazement. They can’t imagine a world without all the electronic accoutrements of their instant plugged-in world. The eminent Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson coined the term biophilia, referring to our need to affiliate with other species (bio = life; philia = love). He believes this is built into our genes, a reflection of our evolutionary roots. In cities, we increasingly work against our biophilic needs by instilling a biophobia. We teach our children by the way we react to nature’s intrusion into our homes: Take that out. Don’t touch. It might bite. This is a problem because the way we treat the world around us is a dir-

ect reflection of our values and beliefs. Compare the way we treat another species when we believe it is our biological kin rather than just a resource, commodity, or opportunity. The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it, and we will only protect what we know and love. But our cities have developed with more regard to the needs of cars and commerce than people. When a father has to go to court to fight for the right of kids to play road hockey, you know something is wrong. Globalization has disconnected us from the real world as we purchase products for their brand names without regard to the source of the raw materials or where and under what conditions the components were manufactured and assembled. Food no longer reflects seasons or locale. It becomes easier to focus on the economy and consumption while forgetting the real source of every-

thing we need and use, namely nature. Our children have exchanged the experience of outdoors and nature with the enclosed world of electronics, resulting in “nature deficit disorder”. For those of us who are concerned about the state of the biosphere, this is disturbing because a person for whom nature is a stranger will not notice, let alone care about, environmental degradation. That’s why many environmentalists are concerned with the way young people are growing up. Computers, television, video games, and the Internet offer information and entertainment in a virtual world without the hazards or discomfort of mosquitoes, rain and cold, steep climbs, or “dangerous” animals of the real world—and without all the joys that the real world has to offer. Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world, we can’t expect
