Olympic lessons serve locals well Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna’s police force got a chance to weigh in on local nightlife Monday evening. Community policing coordinator Garth Letcher and downtown enforcement unit leader Mark Slade told city councillors there are plenty of ways to tweak their own approach to the downtown club scene and that the RCMP have even adjusted their attitude after watching the Olympic success story. “As for the change in attitudes, that was one of the biggest problems that I saw when I started doing this,” explained Mark Slade, motioning to indicate there was a lot of tough-guy stance involved. Slade said the local RCMP are now trying a more friendly position, acting like hosts and keeping crowds moving. Letcher cautioned there is a significant difference between a crowd initially there to see a sports event and one specifically coming out to party, but the pair said the new approach is working. The RCMP who manned Vancouver’s Olympic party crowds were roundly commended for their diplomatic approach to crowd control under circumstances which literally filled the

streets of downtown Vancouver on a nightly basis for nearly two weeks. While Kelowna’s RCMP have taken a page from that book, the RCMP indicated they’re still facing tremendous hurdles with over 3,000 seats worth of patrons pouring out of bars mid-summer to virtually no transportation infrastructure—no buses, few taxis. As in the first two liquor control board hearings held earlier this month, the taxis occupied much of the discussion, with some suggestion taxi stands need to be set up with better lighting and possibly a conceiergetype service, to minimize conflict. Coun. Charlie Hodge asked if the new, more restrictive drunk driving legislation would require more adjustments for the public, but RCMP said they didn’t suspect it would change the scene much at all. “The change from .08 to .05 isn’t really going to have a major effect,” said Slade. “Typically, when people are coming down to these clubs, they’re going to have a plan for how they’re going to get home. Lets face it; you’re going down to drink. Impaired driving laws are changing to be more impactful, but it’s not changing how people behave downtown.

Happy brides-to-be say yes to the free dress Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

There is a Turkish proverb: If there was a wedding in the sky, women would try to put up a ladder. But in Ingrid de Groen’s case, it was more the search for the ladder that led to the wedding. Earlier this month, her sister, Jolanda Evans, was looking for a ladder in some online classifieds when she spotted an advertisement offering free wedding gowns to women in need. “I was more the pushy

sister, saying: Here, look at this,” joked Evans, as she watched de Groen comb over the racks of high-end designer gowns this week that Georgie’s Bridal on Springfield Road is giving away. There are still 22 wedding dresses hanging on the racks waiting for deserving women like de Groen to steal away and if her story is any measure, these gowns are destined to make dreams come true. The dress de Groen is wearing in the photo above is not the one she will wear on her wedding day—nat-

urally, she wouldn’t want her husband-to-be to see that dress—but she was so blown away by the kindness Georgie Martens has shown her and 15 other lucky women so far, she just couldn’t help but get all dressed up to tell the tale. “She’s just spread so much happiness,” said a smiling de Groen about Martens. “I still can’t believe it.” De Groen and her fiancé have known each other for seven years but had not picked a date for their wedding until this happened as they were unsure how they would come up

with the money, even for the intimate backyard affair they’re planning. “I was just going to go to Value Village and see what I could get and fix it up a little,” she said. “So this is just amazing.” Even without the free designer gown, de Groen’s story is magical. She and her fiancé were both facing uphill battles when they met and neither even considered dating anyone, let alone each another. “I was pretty much done with men,” said de Groen, shaking her head. “I was just starting this

new life and trying to figure out how to make ends meet.” Her previous marriage had not gone well and she was trying to assemble some extra cash after taking on a new career as a care aide. Her fiancé was the person she was caring for. Having survived an explosion at work, his focus was trying to stay alive and learn to walk again. Eventually, the pair became friends. He offered to let her watch Survivor at his house, know-

Proposed lake level changes could hurt fish stocks across B.C. Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A plan to raise water levels on Beaver Lake has outdoor enthusiasts ringing alarm bells over risks to fish supplies throughout B.C. Situated 16 kilometres northeast of Winfield, the small freshwater lake is integral to the supply of Pennask trout eggs for a hatchery that stocks lakes across B.C. “For 60 years we’ve been taking eggs out of this system,” said Mark Siemens, manager of Summerland Trout Hatchery during a harvesting trip. Eggs are squeezed from fish that are then returned to the lake. The eggs are put into containers and shipped to Summerland where they’re fertilized and the fry are released into various lakes across the province, including the lake they’re taken from. “From just this location, we get one million eggs that are used to stock 200 lakes across B.C,” said Siemens. Beaver Lake is also integral to a District of Lake Country plan to manage drought. The local government contends raising the dam on both it and Oyama Lake chains would allow

it to store more water for residents and help reload increasingly dry streams, like Vernon Creek. To do that, it is applying to the province for a permit to raise the dam on the lake systems. “It would raise lake levels six feet,” said Siemens, explaining that much of the shoreline where traps sit would be gone. “It would flood our traps. We could move them, which isn’t the end of the world.” What appears to be a bigger concern is how the harvest will be impacted once the ecosystem is changed. “Lake levels aren’t raised indefinitely,” said Siemens, adding if levels were to stay high there would be no problem. But water is dammed, built up and then drawn down as needs arise. That filling-and-draining effect would make the lands surrounding the lake nearly inhabitable for the bugs that trout currently feed on. “Reservoirs and fish don’t get along,” Siemens said. “We’re concerned. But we’ve expressed those concerns to the Ministry of Environment a year ago.” Right now a battle over

the water body is playing out in local government offices between the district and user groups. Last week at a regional district meeting, a cottage owners’ group voiced its concerns and outdoors organizations are also getting involved. Pat Whittingham of the Oceola Fish and Game Club says he’s concerned that reduced fish stocks will negatively impact recreational fishing while taking a bite out of revenues for the provincial economy. “Freshwater fishing contributes nearly half a billion dollars annually to the provincial economy,” said Whittingham, noting the money is raised through license sales, equipment rentals and travel. But, he said, people are less likely to stay with the hobby if fish levels and gratification are reduced, and those funds will dwindle. “Our demographics are already changing,” he said, noting as a group of outdoors-people age and leave their hobbies behind, a new one is more cautious to take their place. “Our goal is to promote responsible use of the outdoors with fishing and hunting,” he said. “We need to get more kids

Nearly every body of water in the Okanagan is

managed for some reason already, but that doesn’t mean smooth sailing in years to come, explained Anna Warwick Sears from the Okanagan Water Basin Board. “Overall, in the Valley, we don’t have enough reservoir storage,” said Warwick Sears, adding she couldn’t speak to the Bea-


City declines to sign memorandum with the WFN Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna city council opted not to sign a memorandum of understanding designed to align the city and Westbank First Nations on community planning and economic development Monday. With an offer on the table to review the document in a workshop before signing, mayor and council decided it might be best to ensure they definitely understand what it

all means. Though the MOU is more a statement of intent than a legally binding agreement, the mayor said she felt the move was still prudent. ••• Several properties were removed from the heritage registry Monday as they no longer qualified for the preservation status. One packinghouse, at 1331 Ellis St., had been demolished and another home had been altered to such an extent it no long-

er resembled the original property. “How can something that’s received heritage status be altered (to that extent)?” asked Hodge. He was told the heritage status offers minimal protection to the property itself and that the main advantage of getting a property listed is that it opens the door for owners to access grant funding for renovations. For those who receive money to revitalize their properties, they may be

required to pay back the money if the property is significantly altered within a five-year time frame. In total three properties were removed as they had been significantly altered in addition to the demolished packing house. ••• The stage is set for a district energy system in the South Pandosy area which could save area residents on heating costs and reduce the carbon footprint of the city. City council has ap-

proved a study to look at whether energy from the waste water treatment facility could be used to supplement the heating systems of homes and offices in the area. City staff will also be looking into how the municipality can retain ownership of at least a portion of that system. The college is already using a similar means to supplement its energy needs.

ver Lake case specifically. “One of the predictions with climate change is we won’t have enough snowpack so we will need to store water in liquid form for when you need it in the summer…this is true for fisheries flow and for human use.” Environmental studies, she said, are always

conducted when there’s some kind of control structure being installed, and that should determine the outcome. “Building a dam will always have some environmental impact, but what will be better for the community in the future…that’s what has to be worked out.”

Bones found An anthropologist is expected to examine bones found at a construction site on Westbank First Nation land as the coroner’s office continues its investigation of the case. Around 2 p.m. on Monday, RCMP were called to a residential construction site at Elk and Cougar Roads after an equipment operator unearthed some bones, which are believed to be human. RCMP Const. Steve Holmes said the bones appear to have been interred for some time.

Kristy Jean of the Westbank First Nation said the remains are ancestral. “We, as a community, are dealing with the archaeology and research aspects of this discovery and at the right point in time we will consider issuing a press release with further details,” she said. The WFN does not suspect foul play in relation to the discovery, and neither do RCMP—the police are no longer involved in the investigation.

Daily news at a glance

The first nightclub on the Westside could be built at Elk Road and Highway 97 if all goes according to plan. Developer Noll Derriksan has placed an advertisement in the spring and summer edition of the Capital News’ Our Style magazine, promoting a country western nightclub to be called The Red Barn. “Get ready for a stompin’ good time. Stay tuned for more details,” the page 4 ad states. The colour advertisement shows a digitally enhanced photograph of a red barn with Mount Boucherie as the backdrop. Derriksan’s office did not immediately return calls for comment. But Westbank First Nation planning manager Hilary Hettinga said his department has received an application for the standalone nightclub, which indicated the facility could be built on the northeast

side of the intersection of Elk Road and the highway, across from the Best Western hotel and Kelly O’Bryan’s restaurant. Hettinga, however, could offer few other details about the application. “The ball has just started rolling,” said Hettinga.


“It wouldn’t be an overly large facility from what I could tell––about 4,500-square-feet. But I don’t have much more than that.” Hettinga noted that a lot more legwork must be done on the application before it could go to Westbank First Nation chief and council for their con-

sideration. Hettinga also noted the Ministry of Transportation would likely require traffic studies be done prior to approval of such a facility because of its close proximity to the highway. The band could also require noise impact assessments, considering the facility would be located adjacent to a manufactured home park development, said Hettinga. A nightclub application would also require a major liquor licence and the local RCMP would need to weigh in on the matter, outlining any policing concerns they would have. Currently, there are no nightclubs on the Westside. There are, however, five standalone pubs, plus several bars attached to restaurants or hotels in Peachland, the District of West Kelowna and on Westbank First Nation land.

At-risk turtles found in local school’s sand pit Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The long jump sand pit at KLO Middle School is now a turtle hatching ground after the discovery of eggs from a turtle species whose existence is listed as “sensitive.� Students Nicolette Vincent and Jennifer Loukras have been taking care of the two surviving baby turtles, who currently reside in a terrarium in one of the school’s classrooms. Loukras said a clutch of turtle eggs was discovered in the sandpit by the side of the school, right before the track and field season began. Poor weather forced a postponement of the

season and new sandpits were built. The pits where the eggs were discovered are surrounded by temporary fencing. Loukras said one cluster of eggs was found, but it is known turtles lay multiple bunches. Two Grade 8 students saw a tiny turtle in the sandpit. They told a teacher and digging started. Ten of the soft eggs were found with crushed shells. Two of the Western painted turtles were saved. The turtles have a distinctive orange and yellow pattern on their undersides. A biologist identified the turtles and a teacher found a tank to house them. The two students are

looking after the turtles until they can be released back into the habitat where they were found. “We change their water every two days, and we feed them every day,� said Vincent. The baby turtles survive on tablets of crushed worms, sardines and algae. Neither Vincent nor Loukras have cared for turtles before, so they did extensive research. In the terrarium, the turtles are bathed by two lights. One provides calcium and ultraviolet light, the other heat. Loukras noted turtles cannot digest food unless they are warm. She added that if the turtle’s development goes properly, her

class will try and release them at the end of school, into a natural habitat. The sandy areas near the school are the only areas available for the turtles to lay their eggs between the creek and the lake. The turtles must be assessed again by a biologist before they are released. But that release must happen soon, before the turtles become accustomed to living in an artificial environment. When the temporary fencing around the sand pits is replaced by a more permanent barrier, Loukras said she would like to see a tablet placed there to tell students about the turtles and their habits. She said turtles are

land and water animals, and need an environment containing both. The water used in the turtles’ terrarium comes from the creek behind the school. Vincent said when the turtles hatched, they were premature. The egg shells were crushed by people’s feet. Due to the sensitivity of the turtle eggs, no further digging can be conducted in the middle school sandpits. “If you flip over the egg, they can die.� The Western painted turtle is on the provincial species blue list. Species on the list are considered at risk of losing their habitats, and vulnerable to disturbances, both human and natural.


Accused money smuggler back in court Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

A bail hearing is expected to continue today for a Kelowna man arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle more than $500,000 into the United States. Richard Neumeyer, 66, was arrested May 21 after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Laurier crossing, lo-

cated near Christina Lake, say they found two secret compartments in the floor of his 2006 Volvo XC90. “When the compartments were opened, a visual inspection revealed numerous plastic wrapped bundles of currency,� border protection said in a news release. A total of 16 bundles containing $510,000 U.S. and $10,000 Cdn were removed, they say.

It is illegal to transport more than $10,000 across the border without reporting it. According to court documents, Neumeyer initially told border officers that he was headed to Las Vegas and said he had $1,600 with him. During an interview later with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, Neumeyer admitted to

using the Volvo to transport large quantities of currency into the U.S., the court documents allege. The court records also allege Neumeyer said he was paid approximately two per cent for each money run he did, and that it was the third time he had brought large amounts of cash into the U.S. using the Volvo. The final destination, Neumeyer indicated, was

Wickenburg, Arizona. The first time he allegedly smuggled cash, he was paid $9,000 and the second time he was paid $10,000, the documents indicate. A bail hearing got underway last week Thursday, but Neumeyer’s lawyer requested a continuance. The case was scheduled to return to court this afternoon.



High speed ‘wobble’ leads to fatal car crash STAFF REPORTER

A Kelowna man who struggled to get control of his SUV on Spall Road Sunday, eventually lost that battle—and his life— in a crash police describe as alcohol and speed related. Police say the 31-yearold was travelling south on Spall Road after 11 p.m. at a “high rate” of speed when his Nissan Pathfind-

er encountered the railroad tracks between Clement Avenue and Enterprise Way and went into a “high speed wobble” after nearly losing control. Const. Steve Holmes said the driver then tried to avoid a vehicle it came up upon and then lost control once again. “The vehicle mounted the sidewalk, went air borne, sheered off a tree and then eventually landed near an apartment

building.” “It was a very horrendous crash,” said Holmes. Drivers in the area stopped and tried to help the two men inside the white SUV. “Kudos to them because they did all they could in providing whatever medical assistance they could,” said Holmes. However, the driver, Jason Hartt, was pronounced dead at hospital and his passenger, a

Jason Hartt 27-year-old man, was taken in for treatment of

non life-threatening injuries. Police are still investigating the crash, but believe the driver may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. They also say they have information that suggests the two men were denied entry at a nearby pub not long before. “They would be barred from entering the bar ostensibly because of an in-

ebriated condition,” said Holmes. At the scene of the crash, empty beer bottles could be seen among the damaged cedars before city crews cleaned up the fallen foliage. Now, in a clearing left because of the crash, flowers and a cross memorializing Hartt can be seen. The death is the Central Okanagan’s third traffic fatality of the year.

Four-year terms eyed for councils Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS









VICTORIA—A task force on local elections has recommended tighter spending rules for candidates, and a four-year term of office for those elected to municipal councils and school boards. The task force of councillors and B.C. Liberal MLAs decided not to place limits on campaign contributions by individuals, businesses and unions. Requiring disclosure of all donations and placing limits on candidate spending is sufficient to allow voters to make up their minds, said Community and Rural Development Minister Bill Bennett, co-chairman of the task force. Kelowna’s mayor, Sharon Shepherd, said she had no problem with proposals when asked about them Monday. The task force also recommended against giving businesses a vote in local elections. Some coastal communities have seen an industrial tax revolt led by Catalyst Paper, which unsuccessfully argued in court that local councils

have loaded too much of the local tax burden on their mills. Bennett said another task force is looking at the imbalance between residential and business taxes in some communities, but the principle of one-person, one-vote was deemed more important than businesses being taxed without representation. “You look around the world and you see that there is no corporate or business vote anywhere in the world, except for downtown London, England, and nobody lives in downtown London, England,” Bennett said. NDP community development critic Scott Fraser said the B.C. Liberals didn’t want to impose limits on campaign contributions at the municipal level because they have refused to do so provincially. Corporate donations have put the B.C. Liberal Party far ahead of the NDP in campaign money collected in recent years, and NDP leader Carole James has repeatedly called for a ban on corporate and union donations to provincial parties.

Tim Horton’s helping kids Today is Tim Horton’s Camp Day. The nation-wide coffee shop chain is donating all the money it raises from the sale of coffee today to its Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation. The foundation sends more than 14,000 children, aged nine to 12, to camp for 10 days every summer or seven-day camps in the winter. The foundation operates six children’s camps

across the country. “The support that we receive from Tim Horton’s customers every year is overwhelming,” said Bill Moir, president of the foundation. “They’re helping make a huge difference in the life of so many children.” Each year the local Tim Horton’s outlets in the Central Okanagan participate in Camp Day and they will be doing the same again today.

Arsonist pleads guilty to car fire A Kelowna man who set a vehicle ablaze last year has pleaded guilty to arson. Giovanni Buscaino, 47, was arrested after police released surveillance footage showing a vehicle being set ablaze in a parking lot off Queensway Avenue on May 19, 2009. The 1991 Audi was set on fire with a piece of cardboard put in the fuel tank, police said. The fire was one of three suspicious blazes in just over an hour that night. The first fire, at 10:45 p.m., began outside a home on Bertram Street and the second was in a dumpster at Leon Avenue and Ellis Street. Buscaino was only charged with the vehicle fire. A pre-sentencing report was ordered following Buscaino’s guilty plea Monday. He is set to return to court in late July.

Huge wedding dress giveaway Dresses from A1 ing she didn’t have a television. To say it was a slow romance would be an understatement but on Sunday, Martens put the final piece of their story together when she offered them this gift. “What I get out of it is a sense of cleansing,” said Martens. “You know, like how you feel when you clean out a closet.” The dresses are all the floor models for discontinued lines. Normally, one might expect a store to sell the items on discount, but Martens said she tried that and realized people who really needed to buy less expensive dresses were not likely to come into her store, knowing full well




they couldn’t afford the beautiful gowns. So she decided to give them away to women in need and, not wanting to profit from the decision herself, she began faxing businesses where she figured she could get the word out. She made posters, ran free classified ads and told people what the give away was all about. “It was largely by word of mouth,” she said, noting she hit the high schools figuring some teacher might need one and enlisted others to contact local shelters, the Salvation Army and so forth. This past Sunday, she threw a free wine and cheese where women were welcome to come in and try on a dress. She set up a photog-

rapher to take pictures of the gowns on offer and had volunteer models help her assemble a catalogue on the wall. One of the gowns is going to a war bride who never got a proper wedding. One will go to a girl who is getting married next month whose dress was too small. And another, much to everyone’s surprise, is going to that photographer who volunteered her time. She contacted her boyfriend to see whether picking out a dress for herself would be a total waste of time. He already had the ring. If there is one sad note to the story, though, it’s that despite her best efforts to spread the word, Martens was not able to find enough women in need to

clear out her shelves. If anyone knows of someone deserving who would like to try on a dress, the gowns are hanging in the store. No questions asked. “I guess someone could try to take advantage, but that’s really not my business,” said Martens. One of the brides has already brought flowers as a thank you and when de Groen asked if she could hang a sign at her wedding saying where she got the gown, Martens laughed at her and said “just have a beautiful wedding.” “I was like: no way. What’s the trick? What’s the catch? And she was like: Have a beautiful wedding,” de Groen said.

How do I support my Thyroid naturally?


n Canada studies indicate that over 10 million people suffer from some sort of thyroid condition. That is one in every three Canadians has a thyroid disorder and as many as 50% are undiagnosed or overlooked by blood tests. The thyroid gland governs metabolic processes that extend to every organ and system in the body. Low thyroid function has symptoms of low body temperature and metabolism, muscle weakness and pain, depression, fatigue, dementia or decreased cognitive function, a weak immune system, weight gain and fluid retention, irregular menstrual cycles, hair loss, dry skin and has been linked to high cholesterol, diabetes and candida.

The thyroid gland produces hormones that are peptides containing iodine. The two most important hormones are tetraiodothyronine (thyroxine or T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). An elevated TSH report suggests hypothyroidism but the body can often compensate by increasing T4 and T3 to keep these levels normal which can still cause people to have symptoms of low thyroid function. Heavy metal toxicity, candida, chemical toxins and environmental radiation are some factors that can affect how the thyroid functions. Using supplements such as selenium and cysteine to make natural glutathione helps eliminate heavy metals from the body. Make sure to eat

plenty of insoluble fibre to bind these toxins out of the body. Eat organic meats or those that have not been exposed to commonly used drugs to ‘fatten’ up animals. Reduce your exposure to bromine and fluoride which displace iodine from the thyroid gland. These chemicals are found in drugs like antihistamines, anti-depressants, our water system, swimming pools, vehicles, carpets, furniture, beds, clothing and many other household items. Don’t forget to consume iodine rich sea vegetables or take a supplement containing iodine like Thyrosense to help support thyroid function.

f your child has ever been unwell with a fever or a cold, you may have considered going to the pharmacy and purchasing an over-thecounter cold medicine. You probably thought that was the end of it— administer a few doses of the medicine to your child and everyone will get some sleep. But unfortunately that may not have been the case. Recently you may have heard about massive recalls affecting many over-the-counter children’s cold and cough medications. Sadly this is not the first time there has been a problem with these supposedly safe concoctions. The makers of children medications Johnson and Johnson’s McNeil Division has recalled 43 different forms of Tylenol, Motrin, Zyrtec and Benadryl, citing manufacturing defects. “Some of the products included in the recall may contain a higher concentration of active ingredient than is specified; others may contain inactive ingredients that may not meet internal testing requirements; and others may contain tiny particles,” said a company statement. Basically what it’s saying is the products may be super potent with possible complications


John Sherman ranging from tachycardia, palpitations, arrhythmias and cardiovascular collapse with hypotension to headaches, dizziness, anxiety, restlessness and nervousness. Wow, all that for a stuffy nose. In November 2000 phenylpropanolamine, an ingredient that used to be found in many over-thecounter cold medications was linked to causing strokes and brain hemorrhage in some patients. I would rather have the cold, thank you very much. In the past the FDA has issued warnings about the overuse of these cough and cold preparations saying that they can lead to serious adverse events such as brain damage, loss of consciousness, irregular heartbeat, seizures and death. These types of side effects seem to be very frequent in over-the-counter medicines. My question is: Why does it seem that nothing ever came of this because here we are more than 10 years later going through the same thing? This type of medicating does not really make

sense. Why would you want to take the chance of life-threatening side effects treating the common cold with pharmaceuticals, when homeopathic remedies can safely help with most types of coughs and colds and will not make you drugged out, sleepy, or dead? A number of controlled studies have been conducted, cementing homeopathy’s positive role in the treatment of the common cold. A doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial of 60 adults and children found positive results with a homeopathic cough syrup as a treatment for a dry cough. The syrup contained Drosera, Arnica, Belladonna, Artemisia cina, Coccus cacti, Corallium rubrum, Cuprum, Ferrum phos, Ipecacuanha and Solidago; this study was undertaken in France in 1986. Many other studies have also been conducted with similar results. If you or your family “catch” colds throughout the fall and winter, homeopathic remedies will probably be quite effective in the treatment of your cough, helping to prevent any complications or even a prolonged sickness. John Sherman is a professional classical homeopath in Kelowna. 250-764-2487

Transit offers everyone a free ride Today is National Clean Air Day and to celebrate, the Central Okanagan transit system is offering free rides on its buses. To enjoy free transit all day, all you have to do is tell the bus driver it’s Clean Air Day. In additon to the free rides, a free continental breakfast will be offered to anyone taking the bus, walking, biking, rollerblading or taking part in a carpool. Between 6:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., the break-

fast buses will be parked at the Queensway, Orchard Park Mall and Stevens Road transit exchanges where they will be serving up baked goods and coffee, compliments of Blenz, Percs and Bliss Bakery. Environmentallyfriendly commuters who stop by can enter to win one of three $100 gift certificates to Outbound Cycle, Cyclepath and Union Cycle, and sign up for the Commuter Challenge to be eligible for

even more prizes. Clean Air Day is a celebration of activities that promote clean air and good health across Canada. It is an opportunity to make environmentallyfriendly lifestyle choices, for you, your family and your community, say promoters of the event. Clean Air Day takes place each year during Commuter Challenge Week. This year, Communter Challenge Week is May 31 to June 5.

Organizers of the evnt say driving vehicles creates more air pollution than any other human activity. Fewer cars on the road also means reduced need for new roads and parking lots, less noise and the ability to preserve our natural green spaces. Everyone can make a difference, with small changes to their driving habits. For more information on Clean Air Day, visit

I just spent a fun Sunday in City Park at a dog agility trial, cavorting with happy, well-behaved dogs and people who were enjoying themselves immensely. There were also two volleyball teams playing, a charity BBQ nearby, some rollerblade hotshots in the rollerblade park and even a few brave souls testing the water in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water park. All this, and a gorgeous view of mountains and lake too. So many people enjoying themselves in one area and it really made me think about what a wonderful addition City Park is to the downtown mix. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Downtown has recently won another convertâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kaela Aryn of Frock Clothing has moved her shop to a new spot at 1567 Pandosy St. The shop features vintage, â&#x20AC;&#x153;pre-loved,â&#x20AC;? handmade and new fashions for women, in a store with a very distinctive look. Painted concrete floors, fresh white walls and whitewashed furniture provide a backdrop for the unique clothing. All the jewellery, wallets and belts, as well as some of her clothing lines

The Grand Opening Soiree will be take place Thursday, June 3 starting at 5 p.m. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ A favourite little shop of mine downtown is High Browse 2nd Hand Books at 1526 Ellis. It has the charming feel of an old bookshop in London, with so many interesting books to browse through. Owner Tim Kirker tells me that their specialty is antiquarian books in the areas of literature, history and the arts. Something most people may not know is that High Browse also carries a great selection of modern fiction titles. So if you want to pick up a few new inexpensive beach novels for summer reading, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your chance. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ I chatted with Dennis Perley of Cafe Soleil recently, and he tells me he is very big on supporting local musicians.

Chiefs put down stakes in Kelowna Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Head coach Ken Andrusiak came away from the first edition of Kelowna Chiefs spring camp certain of at least one thing: The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club will have no trouble finding ample talent to stock its roster for the 2010-11 campaign. “The skill level is very high, especially among the Kelowna kids,” said Andrusiak. “With the skills academies we have in the schools here, Pursuit of Excellence, all those kinds of programs have really raised the talent level. “The challenge will be bringing together talent that’s compatible, guys who can play with each other,” he added. “Regardless, we think we’ll have a good hockey club.” A total of 88 players— about half from the Central Okanagan—took in the two-day camp over

the weekend at the Capital News Centre as the Chiefs made initial plans for the upcoming KIJHL season. The junior B franchise received final approval this week to relocate from Chase where the Chiefs played for the previous three seasons. The team will play its home games out of Rutland Arena (West). Andrusiak will be assisted behind the bench by longtime coaching colleague Grant Sheridan. Fred Pittendreigh, who has been with the Chiefs since their inception in 2007, will serve as general manager while remaining on as part of the ownership group. The move of the entirely locally-owned franchise to Kelowna was contingent on consent from several organizations, including the Western Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets, B.C. Hockey, Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey, the City of Kelowna and Kelowna Minor Hockey.


TEAM WHITE battles Team Blue during the Kelowna Chiefs first ever spring camp on Saturday at CNC. The Chiefs will begin play in the KIJHL in September. Andrusiak said the support of Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton—who holds veto rights over any other hockey team moving to the city—was instrumental in bringing junior B hockey to town. “If it wasn’t for Bruce, this wouldn’t have happened” said Andrusiak. “He’s supported us and

has really helped us get through this process, so we’re grateful for that. There will be certain times when they’ll need players, so that’s how we can help them out.” Andrusiak said a junior B team in Kelowna will provide local players with increased opportunities to play right at home

rather than having to necessarily disperse to other cities and towns throughout B.C. Last season, 32 Kelowna area products—including nine with the Nelson Leafs—played for KIJHL teams. Like all KIJHL clubs, the Chiefs will be permitted to carry two 16-year-

old players, one of which is expected to be Kelowna-born forward Travis Blanleil, a prospect of the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers. “I feel like I can develop in junior B hockey for a year and it will help me get where I need to go,” said Blanleil, who had 25 points in 37 games for the major midget league’s Okanagan Rockets last season. “It’s really nice as a hometown guy to get to play here. I was thinking of leaving this year, but now I won’t have to.” The Chiefs confirmed Tuesday that three other players have signed on with the team for 2010-11—forwards Brandon Bruce and Jordan Salahor, and defenceman Branden Redschlag. Meanwhile, the establishment of a junior B franchise in Kelowna marks a reunion of sorts for Andrusiak and Sheridan. The two coached together for four years at

the midget AAA level in Kelowna, then for three more seasons with the BCMML’s Okanagan Rockets where they won a provincial title in 2006. “We’ve been working on this for quite a long time, so it’s great to finally get a team rolling,” said Sheridan. “We get to coach to together again and work on bringing some more good quality hockey to Kelowna.” The Chiefs will invite about 45 players back for main training camp this August. Andrusiak said 23 will make the final roster with potentially five to seven of those being returnees from last season’s Chiefs squad. The team will play 50 regular season games and will compete in the Okanagan Division which includes Revelstoke, Princeton, Osoyoos, Penticton, Kamloops, Sicamous, and North Okanagan. whenderson

Ducks sign McMillan to pro deal Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

It wasn’t a case of if, but when the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks were going to sign Brandon McMillan. And if even though it took a few weeks more than expected, the Kelowna Rockets forward is thrilled to have his name on a three-year entry level contract. “It was a pretty long process, my agent said longer than most, so I’m pretty happy that it’s finally done,” said McMillan,

a third-round draft pick of the Ducks in 2008. “Now I don’t need to think about the contract any more, I can get on with my summer, focus on working hard and being ready for (the Ducks) summer camp. It’s nice to be able to move on and concentrate on just hockey again.” The Rockets are relatively certain they won’t see the speedy and multitalented forward back with the WHL club for the 2010-11 campaign. Two other scenarios

are more likely for McMillan—either playing for Anaheim’s American Hockey League affiliate in Syracuse, N.Y. or, ideally, making the jump directly to the big club. McMillan plans to leave no stone unturned in his efforts to catch on with the NHL team this fall. “They’re telling me I have a good chance of making it, so I’m going in there with exactly that goal,” said McMillan, who scored 67 points in 55 games with the Rockets last season. “I think

that goal’s achievable, but I know I’m going to have to work super hard and prove to them I belong.” McMillan played four seasons with the Rockets. The last was his best with 67 points in 55 regular season games and another 15 points in 10 playoff contests. He also won a silver medal with Canada at the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championship in Ottawa. Among McMillan’s goals this summer will be to add both speed and

muscle to give himself every opportunity to crack the Ducks’ lineup. “That’s the difference with the NHL in that everybody is faster and stronger than what you see in junior,” McMillan added. “I want to put on some weight, build some muscle and show I can handle the physical play at that level. If I can add some speed that’s going to help me, too.” McMillan will attend the Ducks’ summer camp in early July.

Rocks have Raiders’ number Owls guaranteed top 8 in B.C. rugby The Kelowna Raiders will look to regroup when they battle the Rattlers in Kamloops on Friday night. The Raiders are coming off their third loss of the season in Okanagan Xtreme Lacrosse League action, all of them at the hands of the Armstrong Shamrocks. Last Friday night at Memorial Arena, Kelowna surrendered a 7-4 third period lead and went of to lose to the ‘Rocks 9-7. Undisciplined penalties in the final frame cost the Raiders who gave a number of let power play goals. In addtion, Kelowna was without a trio of its top scoring threats for the game—Pho Heng, Ryan Spring and Jarrett Neigum.

Thanks to a strong defensive effort, the Raiders dominated the first two periods before allowing the game to slip away over the final 20 minutes. Rookie Braden Renner led the Kelowna attack with a hat-trick, with singles coming from Jared MacLennan, Deryk McPhail, Kyle MacLennan and Steve Plasko. Dan Giger, Nathan Strohm and Steve Clarke popped two goals apiece for Armstrong. The Shamrocks (5-1) are now four points ahead of the Raiders (3-3) top spot in th the OXLL. Kelowna’s next home action is Friday, June 18 vs Kamloops.


Kelowna’s crosstown

The Warriors (4-2-1) are coming off a 6-4 win over the Kamloops Rattlers on Sunday. Tanner Belsham was solid in net for Kelowna, while Evan Helgesen, Steve Scorah and Shawn Hochhausen anchored a stingy Warriors defense. Tyler French (2), Scott Renner (2), Tyler Eurchuk and Hochhausen scored for Kelowna. The Raiders, meanwhile, dropped a 9-2 decision to the first place Vernon Tigers on Saturday. Rutland is 2-5-1.

With one colossal upset already to their credit, the Kelowna Owls are looking for another unlikely result at the B.C. high school boys AAA rugby championship.


IF WE PLAY OUR GAME, ANYTHING’S POSSIBLE. Dave Marfleet, Owls head coach

The 12th-ranked and underdog KSS squad will battle No. 4 Oak Bay today (Wednesday) in a second-round matchup at the provincial tournament in Abbotsford. “If we play our game, anything’s possible,” said Owls head coach Dave Marfleet. “If we play a tough but clean brand of rugby, and stick to our patterns of play then, yeah, we have a chance.” The Owls played the role of giant-killer on Saturday, knocking off No. 5 Earl Marriott 15-14 in the opening round of the playoffs in Kamloops. A Caleb Meyers try with three minutes left in the game pulled the Owls to within one at 14-13. That set the stage for Sam Collington’s sharp angle kick into a stiff breeze for the winning margin as the Owls posted their most significant victory in years.

The Owls upset Marriott 15-14. “The guys were driven to succeed,” Marfleet said. “All the work we’ve done and the commitment and work ethic has paid off. It was a total team effort.” KSS is guaranteed no worse than an eighthplace showing at the 2010

The last time an Owls team cracked the top 10 was 1992 when they finished sixth overall. “Traditionally, the interior hasn’t had a lot of top-10 success, so it’s great that we’ve been able to get this far,” Marfleet said. The winner between the Owls and Oak Bay will take on the winner of No. 1 Shawnigan Lake and No. 9 Robert Bateman

Challenge rebounds for two wins after tough start Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Okanagan Challenge is back in the game. After dropping the first three contests of the 2010 campaign, the defending Pacific Coast Soctcer League champs dug themselves out of a lastplace hole with a weekend sweep on the road. Despite missing three key veterans due to injury—Roman Doutkevitch, Brandon Ferridge and Dillion Ferridge—Okanagan edged the Victoria Highlanders 3-2 on Saturday night. Joel Malouf’s second goal of the game off a corner kick in the 90th minute provided the winning margin as the Challenge fought back from

a 2-0 deficit. Sang Hwang scored the other goal as the Challenge rebounded nicely from a shaky start. “We made two mental mistakes, got down two goals early and Victoria thought it was going to be a walk,” said Challenge coach Clitn Schneider. “But our guys kept a belief and fought back. Our work rate was expectional, the guys fitness level is very good and that really showed. We outworked our opponents in both games.” On Sunday in Burnaby, a more convincing effort resulted in a 3-0 win over Athletic Club of B.C. Tim Hord scored a pair, while Matt Griffin added the other marker. On the downside, Grif-

fin, a centre back from Kansas, suffered a dislocated shoulder on Sunday and is expected to miss at least two weeks of action. With renewed confidence the Challenge (23) is on its home turf this weekend to host Khalsa at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and the first-place Vancouver Thunderbirds (4-0) on Sunday at 2 p.m. Both games will be played at the Apple Bowl. “It was important for us to get those first wins, now we can build on that,” added Schnieder. “We’re excited to play at the Apple Bowl, our first true home games.”


The Okanagan Whitecaps notched their first win in PCSL premier women’s play with a 3-1


Jays head south to Washington The Kelowna Jays return to Pacific International League play this weekend as they hit the pavement for four games south of the border. Kelowna will battle the Seattle Studs in a doubleheader on Saturday, then will take on the Everett Merchants for a pair of games on Sunday. The Jays are 2-0 in PIL regular season play. Meanwhile, the Jays faced little opposition last weekend as they won all four of their Okanagan Major Baseball League games in convincing fashion. On Saturday at Boucherie field, the defending OMBL champs blasted the Vernon Diamondbacks 10-1 and 10-0. Cory Wood tossed a two-hitter in the opener, while Cody Valgardson and Jared Johnson each had two

RBIs. In Game 2, Ashton Fiorko and Pete Tollenaar combined for a no-hitter. Fiorko was overpowering, facing the minimum 12 batters through four, before Tollenaar finished up. On Sunday, Blake Young tossed a two-hitter for five innings and Dawson Nemwan threw two innings of hitless relief as the Jays won the opener against the Penticton Pirates 6-0. Cory Smith and Scott Belinski scored two runs apiece. Game 2 saw Kiefer Rodway and Ryan Paterson combine on a two-hitter through five as Kelowna beat the expansion club from Penticton 10-0. Geoff White and Cory Smith each had two hits and scored twice.

Junior A’s win four games in Victoria


OKANAGAN A’S first baseman Dillon Kakoschke (left) stretches out while Quinn Allen of the North Delta Blue Jays tries to beat the throw to first in B.C. Premier Baseball League action Saturday at the Apple Bowl.

The Okanagan junior A’s are celebrating the first four-game sweep of their brief history. The A’s—in their inaugural season in the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League—won a pair of doubleheaders on the Island over the weekend to push their season mark to 12-16. The A’s brought a far cleaner defensive game to the diamond than the team that made 22 errors a week earlier in four losses to Abbotsford. On Saturday, Okanagan took a pair from the hometown Victoria Eagles. In Game 1, Brett Loeppky drove in a pair of runs and Luke Cooke (32) went 6-plus innings as

the A’s won 8-2. In Game 2, Jesse Thompson spun a fourhitter and Alex Ballingall and Dawson Yates had two hits each as Okanagan edged the Eagles 4-3. On Sunday, the A’s took down the Victoria Mariners 9-0 and 4-3. In the opener, Eric McGinn went six scoreless innings for the win. In the series finale, Brandon Johnson’s ninthinning single scored Dawson Yates with the winning run. Jake Maters pitched 6 1/3 solid innings while Michael Tongue picked up the save. The A’s next league action is June 12 and 13 as they visit the North Shore Twins.

The Okanagan A’s managed to halt a ninegame losing streak but still struggled through another disappointing weekend of B.C. Premier Baseball League action. The North Delta Blue Jays took three of four games at Elks Stadium as the A’s record fell to 8-16. The A’s were close in the opener but came up short 4-3 as Brett McLure had two RBIs in the loss. In Game 2, Jeff May tossed a five-hitter to pace the A’s to a 2-0 win, their first since April 24. On Sunday, Okanagan fought back to tie the Jays 4-4 in the sixth, but then gave up four in the top of the ninth to lose 8-4. “We’re losing a lot of close games and onerun games, we’re just not having any luck,” said A’s head coach Evan Bailey. In the series finale, it was one for the ages as the Jays ripped the A’s 241. North Delta scored 12 times in the first and eight more in the third inning on the way to the win. “I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,” said Bailey. “We didn’t make any errors, we didn’t boot the ball around. They just hit everything. They had 10 consecutive hits with two outs in the first. What can you say?” Bailey continues to express deep concern over the club’s pitching woes. The A’s lead the league with an ERA above 8.00, and are the only team to have issued more than 100 walks. “Our pitching hasn’t been good,” said Bailey. “We’ve given a lot of games away this year.” The A’s will visit the Abbotsford Cardinals


The Okanagan A’s will host Abbotsford this weekend in B.C. Bantam AAA Baseball League play. The clubs will square in a doubleheader beginning at 10 a.m. at Boucherie Park. The A’s dropped both ends of a doubleheader to the Vancouver Mounties last weekend at Edith Gay to slip to 11-10 on the season.

Master gardener program offers more than just theory


ot all who read this column are gardening enthusiasts, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always write about gardening. I often digress into a bit of local history and other â&#x20AC;&#x153;human-interestâ&#x20AC;? topics. I do know, however, that there are many readers who are passionate gardeners and it is those people who need to pay attention to what I have to say about the master gardeners program. I have been privileged to be an instructor for a few of the classes in the past and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how impressed I am with the depth of knowledge the participants acquire.

this when I was teaching some of the classes. This program appeals to enthusiastic home gardeners who wish to become volunteer gardening advisors with the Master Gardeners Association of B.C. The intensive training program provides upto-date information on all gardening basics. The program emphasizes environmentally responsible, sustainable gardening practices. It combines classroom instruction and volunteer hours. The classroom training (78 hours) is provided every Saturday for three months. The volunteer hours are individually scheduled over a two-

As in-depth as the information offered by the course is, the program is also set up to be fun for those attending and I saw

year period. This year the program will run in the fall, starting Sept. 11 and it will go until Dec. 11. If you are interested in learning more about this program, I suggest you attend one of the information sessions coming up. The first session is slated for this Saturday (June 5) from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Choices Market, 1937 Harvey Ave. Future sessions include: â&#x20AC;˘ In Kelowna on Tuesday, June 22 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday Aug. 21from 10a.m. to 11:30 a.m. â&#x20AC;˘ In Vernon on Saturday, June 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Science Cen-

tre (Heritage Hall) at 2704 Highway 6 â&#x20AC;˘ In Penticton on Saturday, June 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Bethel Church, 945 Main Street. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s content includes a classroom component covering a full range of gardening topics, such as botany and plant identification as well as soils, amendments and composting. Lawns and their alternatives will be talked about as well as the right plants in the right place, trees, shrubs, fruit trees, berries, roses, and perennials. Sustainable landscape design, xeriscaping, organic vegetable gardening, diagnosis and management of pest, disease and weed prob-

lems as well as propagation and pruning and basic entomology and integrated pest management will also be covered. Then there is the volunteer component, comprised of 70 volunteer hours over two years. On successful completion of the classroom component, students share their knowledge and passion about gardening with the community through volunteer hours, supported by experienced master gardeners. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ And finally, a reminder of the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 81st annual flower show and tea June 12.

Spring cleaning does not have to be such a daunting task Tresa Erickson CONTRIBUTOR

Long ago when people depended upon fireplaces or wood stoves to heat their homes, spring cleaning was essential. Everything had to come out of the house and be cleaned and the walls, windows and floors washed of soot. These days with efficient heating systems and the menagerie of cleaning products and services available, spring cleaning is no longer a necessity. Many people, however, continue to do it, and if you are among them, here are some tips to make the task easier. Spring cleaning generally requires deep cleaning, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat it like an ordinary cleaning. Prepare for it to take several days and make a plan of attack. Start with the uppermost floor and work on one room at a time. You will be cleaning everything in sight-walls, artwork, furniture, linens, knickknacks and floor, so you will need to create a schedule. Perhaps you can do two or three rooms one weekend, and the rest the next. Give yourself enough time to get the job done right. To make quick work of each room, go in beforehand and make a checklist of all of the areas that need to be cleaned. Research the chores that lie ahead of you and make certain you know how to proceed and what tools and products to use. If any room is cluttered, find a time to deal

with that before you clean. The less stuff you have in the room, the easier it will be to move around it and clean it. Depending upon the scope of the work, you may need to enlist some help. Look for a couple of older, more reliable, experienced friends or family members to assist you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring in a group of novices. You will spend more time showing them what to do than getting the chores done. If

possible, choose individuals who share your interests. The cleaning will go faster if you have something in common to talk about. To save time, collect all of the cleaning supplies and equipment needed and place them into a basket that you can carry from room to room. If you have helpers, make them a basket as well. This will prevent everyone from grabbing for the same stuff time and time again.

Take action on domestic violence


hile it’s good to hear yet another B.C. panel has come up with recommendations aimed at helping prevent domestic violence deaths in this province, it’s time for the government to stop talking the talk, and start walking the walk. The 19 recommendations are basically the same as those that emanated from a coroner’s inquest into a murder-suicide that took the lives of five family members in Victoria late last year. While some of the measures

proposed by the inquest were heeded by the government at the time, this latest panel was set up to study the issue even more. The panel says domestic violence cases should be fast-tracked through the system and cases where there is a high risk of harm or death should be flagged. More consistency and better communications and the sharing of information between government agencies is also called for. The panel made its report after studying cases in which there were 11 deaths reported as a re-


sult of domestic violence, between 1995 and 2009. But the fact it has all been said before points to a need for immediate action, not just words when it comes to the troubling incidence of domestic violence in our society. Locally, a police liaison has been appointed to work on domestic violence cases but little has been heard publicly about that initiative since the position was established last year. Back in January, then solicitor general Kash Heed, responding to

the Victoria coroner’s inquest, said the government was looking at the issue but apart from a few minor changes, did not commit any serious money to fighting the problem. A province-wide anti-domestic violence unit was hinted at but again, no funding or time frame was put forward. Women in B.C. who find themselves at the hands of abuse cannot afford to wait any longer. The province needs to act decisively now. Talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words.

The moves make sense. After all, That’s why the latest recommenmunicipal candidates, like their provdation out of Victoria—four year incial and federal counterparts, seek terms for municipal councils is such public office and once ensconced be

for millions of dollars of taxpayersupported spending. The rules they work under should not be that different from other elected Canadian politicians. In today’s interconnected world, they may have to act locally but many times they have think globally too. The City of Kelowna may not be a huge metropolis but it handles a budget in the $90 million range. Even West Kelowna, with a third of the population of its larger neighbour, has a budget of around $48 million. Both provide services not only for their own residents but for residents of areas outside their political bound

So while the improved transparency of election spending would be welcome, longer council terms are needed even more. It’s never made sense to me that federal and provincial politicians are elected for five-year terms but their municipal counterparts have to head back to the polls every three years. In the case of a rookie councillor, it can take as long as a year to get up to speed on the issues, rules and procedures they must follow doing the public’s business. That is one-third of their term. If there is little or no continuity on a council due to a high turnover dur

be delayed for months while members of council learn the ropes. Unlike the perceived glitz and glamour of the provincial Legislature and the House of Commons, city hall is more the blue-collar cousin. But that is no reason to treat the people who serve there differently from other men and women who are directly accountable to constituents. If we are going to hold our local representatives responsible for running our cities and towns, we need to give them the time to see projects through to their conclusion.

Letter writer seems confused about tax To the editor: Donald Leung (letter: B.C. Businesses Will Be Able to Get Full Rebates of 12% HST:Whether They Pass It On To Us is Up to Them, May 30 Capital News) is either seriously confused about the way PST currently works, or he has believed everything the Liberal party have said with regard to the introduction of HST. To state that “every small business is going to get a 7 per cent reduction in the cost of doing business” is totally and utterly wrong. Up until last year I ran a retail store in Vancouver, and the following is the impact that HST would have had on my business: None of the items I sold contained direct PST because, like every retailer, I had an exemption

At the moment, if you sell a used vehicle privately, the purchaser has to pay PST on the sale price when he goes to insure the vehicle. Do you think the government is going to give up all that easy money when they abolish PST? No, you will be paying 12 per cent on a used vehicle, in other words $500 more on a car valued at $10,000. This is a nice shot in the arm for car dealerships, but a huge kick in the xxxx for the average person. If you don’t think this tax is about gouging more money out of us overtaxed citizens, then you either just arrived in B.C. from another planet, or you are a Liberal MLA. Peter Emery, Kelowna

Choice is sometimes inconvenient A Gift in Memory To the editor: Dear Paula and the many others who stand up for choice: I find it unfortunate that when speaking about another human life, you turn to the language of convenience. Your choices, as stated, were based on your changing “status,” “goals,” “income” and “emotions.” Since when did life and death become so convenient? At every stage of our

human development we are human and living. You were those “cells” too; if not, then who and what were you? The children you “wanted” were cherished and allowed to live. You even seem to be unwilling to give them up now. What was the difference between these and those you aborted? Timing, feeling, convenience. Many women have had abortions. Many women have felt little choice. Instead of fur-

thering this societal negligence, why don’t we offer support and understanding instead of dismissing these women and their children for our own convenience? In this day, with the ability to use ultrasound, no one should still be confused about whether that tiny baby is really there. Is killing an innocent human being a moral wrong? Apparently, it’s just fine if it’s convenient, according to you. I do have the right to

choose what happens to me and my body belongs to me. I choose to admit that life comes from life and not from clumps. I choose to see that what science shows to be a human at different stages is indeed as important and real as my own body. I choose to take responsibility for my choices. I choose to admit the truth even if it is not convenient. Jessie Davis, Kelowna


What we claim to know vs choose to believe Open letter to Richard Dawkins (author The God Delusion, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution): Your book The God Delusion is very interesting. You debunked many things that I never believed in, but I think you have thrown out the baby with the bathwater. Well, you’re not alone. A newspaper reported of a 59-year-old Anglican high school teacher who recited his favourite prayer every day on his way to work, and suddenly he just stopped praying. “I stopped because I lost my faith, I now truly loath any sight or sound of religion. I blush at what I used to believe.” He now is an avowed atheist. Sadly, he’s messed up for life, and hundreds of millions like him. I grew up rather irreligious. When I read the Bible, out of curiosity in my 20s, I found nothing I could believe in. My last 50 years have been devoted in trying to understand

Make the drive worthwhile.

what an incredible nature and universe we live in that, to my mind, couldn’t be all accidental. I share your opinion that “God retired” after the big bang. Because, if scientist can say that the whole universe was smaller than an atom, some 14 billion years ago, which is unbelievable, then is it any less credible to suggest and believe that a creator, who is as intangible and invisible as is our mind, used the Big Bang to make a material universe possible? Actually matter, as we think of it, does not exist, as everything is energy. A simple hydrogen atom, whose electron orbits the nucleus with some hundred million billion circuits every second, makes matter real to us time-space creatures. But where is the dynamo or battery or the source that makes all this possible? Imagine if all the space within the atoms were taken out of our body, there would be nothing left of us to look at. So

much for our present material importance. I have no problem with the broad term “evolution.” But “Darwinian evolution,” devoid of “mind” could not have a goal; it selects for what is useful now, not for what might become useful in the future. When you say that natural selection is a “cumulative” process, then who or what is the selector? Doesn’t “evolve” suggest that there is intelligence behind it? Or is it all just happenstance, as far as you and atheists believe? To simplify my personal beliefs of these complex phenomenons, that evolution is the process of creation; I made up the word “creavolution,” some 20 years ago, and creavolution compliments the Anthropic Principle. It is mind-boggling to read that Stephen Hawking believes that the universe has no creator, yet he believes that the universe can create itself spontaneously out of nothing.

Wow! Yes Mr. Dawkins, fundamental religions have ruled humanity virtually forever, but this could only happen in cahoots with politicians and the money-manipulators. You forgot to mention this: People need to re-discover their birthright. Regardless what you or anybody else believes, we have a responsibility, a mandate, to take care of

our planet for future generations, and we’re failing miserably. I’m deeply ashamed. I humbly share the opinion of the late physicist John Wheeler: “We do not know the first thing about the universe, about ourselves, and about our place in the universe.” Gunther Ostermann, Kelowna

To the editor: I have to applaud the letter written by Paula Cryderman on pro-choice, May 21, in your paper. The freedom that we must fight for and that is worth fighting for is the freedom of choice in all things. Adult, informed, well thought out and safe choice is a freedom worth guarding. Margo Jensen, Kelowna

certificate that enabled me to buy goods for resale without being charged PST. I paid PST on several overheads, such as telephone, advertising, office supplies etc. However on a $1.2 million turnover I paid out only about $400 during the course of the year in PST that was irrecoverable. Since my average sale was $25, that meant that I made approximately 48,000 sales in a year. If I were to pass on the full saving of irrecoverable PST that would mean customers would save just under one penny on the average sale. Put another way: I could reduce that $24.99 item to $24.98. Wow, that should stimulate the economy! There is one aspect of HST that our government would rather you didn’t focus on, and that is the sale of used vehicles.

There are gender differences when it comes to physical aggression


re men really more aggressive than women? Certainly, that is the prevailing perception. But what does science tell us? A study conducted 30 years ago at Stanford found that psychological differences between the sexes are generally minimal with the exception of aggression. Since then, those results have been further proven with the added qualifier that women can be equally aggressive, but tend to be less physically


Paul Latimer dangerous than their male peers. Statistically, males between the ages of 12 and 28 commit two-thirds of violent crime. In the U.S., the rate of violent crime from females is one in 56 versus

one in nine for males. Again, men commit the vast majority of murders in the U.S.—90 percent. Even in imagination, men are more physically aggressive than women. Men harbour more homicidal and revenge fantasies and report more aggressive dreams. Still, studies do show women are just as prone to feelings of anger and hostility as men. Women are more likely to use relational or social aggression (such as

rumours, gossip, glaring, eye rolling, silent treatment and put downs) rather than acting out physically toward a competitor. Some speculation exists about why women use this more subtle form of aggression—it may be the result of societal expectation for women not to show hostility or perhaps it is due to a relative lack of physical strength in comparison to men. A 2008 study did find that relational aggression is just as common among boys as it is girls during

childhood and adolescence. When it comes to physical violence, the only area where women are equal to men in terms of prevalence is in romantic relationships. We typically hear of instances where men are violent toward their female partners, however analysis out of the University of New Hampshire finds roughly equal violence by women, albeit with far less dangerous consequences. Although women

are just as likely to use physical aggression in romantic relationships as men, far more women are injured by men. In fact, two-thirds of injuries in domestic disputes are to women. While men are more likely to punch or choke during a physical altercation, women are more likely to slap or scratch— obviously leading to less serious results. Although societal expectations may play a part in the differences in aggression between genders, a 2007 Canadian study does show there is likely a biological basis as well. In this study from the University of Montreal, five per cent of toddler boys compared to one per cent of girls engaged in regular physical aggression and that gap did not change between the age

of 17 and 29 months. If the difference were entirely due to outside influence, one would expect the gap to get larger as the children aged and were exposed to more societal influence. It is now believed that some of the difference could be caused by the effects of testosterone on brain development and function. More research is needed, but it should be noted that males are the more aggressive among almost all mammals. The only exception is the spotted hyena—a species in which the female has more testosterone than the male. Paul Latimer is a local psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials. 250-862-8141

sented to Kelowna Coun. Robert Hobson, who represented the city at the annual FCM conference and municipal expo in Toronto on the weekend. The award recognizes Kelowna’s use of zoning in all neighbourhoods. City officials called it significant national recognition of Kelowna’s approach to sustainable growth. It says it zones buildings, not people, and is based on building forms and densities appropriate for neighbourhoods throughout the city, rather than focusing on the occupants of the buildings and special needs that might exist. “This zoning accommodates a diverse array of compatible housing forms and related uses throughout the city, instead of treating some residential uses as institutional or requiring a specific zone,” said the city in a release announcing the award. “In this way, all areas of Kelowna have the ability to sustain a vibrant mixture of residents by offering an assortment of housing types.” Under the plan, supportive housing is treated like any other apartment building and permitted throughout the city.

Sezmu was the Egyptian god of wine and each Angus cattle drink more than a bottle of wine daily at their feed lot in Oliver. Sezmu creates wonderful steaks by sharing the wine with its cattle. The beef is dryaged for 21 days for maximum flavour and by the time it gets to you, it is exceptionally well-marbled, has a distinct flavour, improved colour and longer shelf-life than traditional beef. The wine makes all the difference. There is only one other operation of this type, in Australia and it exports all its product to Japan. Being Beef in B.C.

Gauthier was formerly with Gallagher’s Canyon golf course, The Eldorado Hotel and the Grapevine Restaurant, while Mitchell was the former sous-chef at Waterfront Wines. The quaint bistro has 22 seats inside, 10 outside and serves traditional French cuisine from Monday to Friday for lunch and from Tuesday to Saturday for dinner. It is fully licensed and the prices are very reasonable for both food and liquor. I tried the organic chicken pot pie and the croque monsier, which is not your ordinary ham and cheese sandwich. It is a fabulous crispy grilled glazed ham and gruyere cheese sandwich.

Local 80-year-old Joe Sullivan has published a book about his life called Joe Sullivan: The Farm Kid from Kouchibouguac, New Brunswick. Sullivan writes about uncovering the secret of living a prosperous and satisfying life. Growing up as the youngest surviving child of a large farming family, he was raised by a capable mother, hard-working father and a peer group of 11 older siblings. He describes ear-

ly 20th century farm life; trekking half a mile for water each day, snaring salmon near the river dam and breaking wild horses shipped out from Saskatchewan. He dropped out of school at 13 and spent 30 years with CN Railway. Shift work and the loss of his family life drove Sullivan to venture into real estate, where he found his niche building and accumulating dozens of properties throughout Moncton, N.B. His memoir is an honest and introspective look at his roots. The detailed account of his approach to purchasing real estate is invaluable insight for any person. The book is available at Mosaic Books and is an excellent read for anyone interested in finding their own personal success.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so personal about an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whereabouts?


he advent of personal information legislation across Canada has provided employees with a mechanism to challenge their employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monitoring of their activities. In at least one context, however, employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; use of monitoring technology has been upheld. Employers operating fleets of vehicles surely appreciated the development of global position ing systems (GPS) and mobile data terminals (MDTs). The effective use of such monitoring systems has allowed employers to hone the efficiency of their mobile fleets. They also, of course, have allowed close monitoring of the driversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; whereabouts and (no surprise here) employees have sought ways to push back against that form of electronic surveillance.


Robert Smithson A decision released by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has addressed a complaint by a driver of a municipal transportation service available to mobility-reduced citizens. The driver objected to the installation of the MDT and GPS devices on vehicles he drives. He alleged that the employer was improperly collecting his personal information, namely his daily movements while on the job. Specifically, the driver said the transit organization was using MDT/ GPS for the following reasonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to keep track of

his time throughout the day, to make sure he did not take a break or lunch, to time every pick-up and drop-off and to track his route and travel time. The privacy commissioner determined that the information in dispute was collected and used by the employer strictly for an appropriate purposeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; that of providing an efficient service to clients. According to the employer, the purpose for using MDT/GPS was to increase efficiency and the quality of the service. For example, an MDT immediately indicates to drivers any scheduling changes, eliminating the need for dispatchers to contact drivers directly. The GPS system was used for route scheduling and service adjustments, and for more accurate vehicle-arrival information for clients. Emergency ser-

vice was accessed simply by pressing a button, as the GPS can give the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exact location. The federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act allows an organization (subject to certain restrictions) to collect, use, or disclose personal information for purposes that a reasonable person would consider are appropriate in the circumstances. The privacy commissioner deemed the personal information collected by the employer not to be sensitive and determined it was information the employer had legitimate interests in collecting (in order to effectively deliver their transportation service). The commissioner also noted that the collection of the information was not particularly privacy-invasive.

The commissioner repeated the questions which must always be asked to determine whether the use of technology to collect personal information is in compliance with the act.



â&#x20AC;˘ Is the measure demonstrably necessary to meet a specific need and is it likely to be effective in meeting that need? â&#x20AC;˘ Is the loss of privacy

proportional to the benefit gained? â&#x20AC;˘ Is there a less privacy-invasive way of achieving the same end? There was one element of the findings, however, which left me scratching my head. The commissionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasons are devoid of any apparent analysis of whether the data being collected by the employer via the MDT and GPS systems amounted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;personal informationâ&#x20AC;? for the actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purposes. That, of course, is the threshold question which must be answered whenever a person complains about the collection, use, storage, or disclosure of his or her â&#x20AC;&#x153;personalâ&#x20AC;? information. In this instance, I fail to see how any of the data collected by the employer

amounted to personal information. The data pertained to the location of the employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicles. Even if that data also indirectly suggests the whereabouts of employees, in my view that fact doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t render the information personal to the employee. Put another way, I fail to see how an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whereabouts, while on the job, constitute his or her personal information. This subject matter is provided for general informational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon as legal advice.

Has Gout Affected You? 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. It is uncommon in children and young adults. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Some people have a genetic predisposition due to a disorder of purine metabolism. In these individuals attacks of gout can be triggered by eating foods high in purines and by consuming high quantities of alcohol. Others can have secondary gout. Secondary gout is associated with another medical condition such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, certain medications, particularly diuretics (water pills), salicylates (aspirin), and niacin. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settlles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Any joint can be involved. Classic signs of gout are pain, redness, and swelling in the big toe or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. A number of therapies are available. Some more successful than others. 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 obligation consultation to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this gout study.

Bookkeeping is essential for any successful business Wine ads O wanted

ne of the requirements for individuals and small businesses alike is the requirement to keep orderly records. CRA’s publication Guide for Canadian Small Businesses, which is a must read for anyone starting a business, lists five reasons to keep records: • Good records can help you identify the source of your income • Well-kept records can mean tax savings • Well-kept records can prevent most of the problems you might encounter in an income tax or GST/ HST audit • Your records will keep you better informed about the financial position of your business • Proper records may help you get loans from banks and other creditors. The requirement to keep good records brings up the question of how does one go about keeping good records and who will be responsible to keep those records. In some cases, you,


Gabriele Banka the business owner, have taken some bookkeeping courses and are totally comfortable with the recordkeeping portion of the business as well as the many other duties that face you when you run your own business. In other cases, you may need to look for a bookkeeper. In every case where there is a sole proprietorship or a limited company I would suggest that you have a designated professional look over your books at your year end and prepare your yearly tax return. The next question is whether to use a computer system or a manual system. If you don’t have many transactions a manual system is probably OK. If you want professional looking invoi-

cing and you don’t want to have to rekey everything from a manual spreadsheet into an accounting system, you would probably want an accounting system. Using accounting software adds just one more level of complexity to the management of your business. If you are not computer or accounting savvy, it might be more cost effective in the long run to have an experienced bookkeeper or accountant do the system setup for you as well as the bookkeeping. This way you will be freed up to do the other things in your business that need to be accomplished such as sales and attracting clients. On the other hand, both Simply and Quickbooks have a simpler version of software that will allow the use of plain English for the menu items so that it is easy to understand where to enter an item based on the kind of transaction that is happening. Bookkeeping is cur-

rently not a regulated profession, however, bookkeepers who are serious about their professionalism can join an organization called the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers in Canada. This organization will also help you to locate a bookkeeper in your area. Its web page is located at Alternatively, some of the accounting offices in the area will also take on bookkeeping engagements and if they don’t, perhaps they have developed a relationship with one or several bookkeepers in the area that they could recommend. Bookkeepers should be able to put together a balance sheet and an income statement. They should also be able to let you know which of your customers have not paid you yet and how many days their account has been outstanding. They should also be able to give you a monthly list of the bills that you need to pay. Bookkeepers should be able to balance your

bank and credit cards on a monthly basis. Bookkeepers need to be able to determine the difference between a business expense and a personal expense. Bookkeepers love going through all the debit slips and determining what was purchased and allocating the costs to the various expense accounts. The software programs that the bookkeeper uses should easily interface with the software program that your accountant uses to prepare the year end financials and income tax return. Most important is the relationship that you will have with your bookkeeper. You need to decide whether you will meet with your bookkeeper on a monthly or quarterly basis to go over the results. Will you drop off your records at your bookkeeper’s office or will they work in yours? Your bookkeeper can be a real aid to help you identify trends that are happening with your business so you should develop a

good relationship with your bookkeeper. Unfortunately, in my practice I have come across several small businesses who have tried to do the bookkeeping themselves without having any bookkeeping or accounting knowledge and I have come across others that have hired bookkeepers who should have picked another profession. In both cases we have had to either redo the books or spent so much time deciphering what was recorded that we could have redone the work. Unfortunately, the client ends up paying twice for the same work. I know that in a great majority of new businesses, the record keeping aspect of managing the business is overlooked. However, if the business records are accurate, then the business can enjoy savings in many other areas. Gabriele Banka is a certified general accountant, Simply certified. 250-763-4528

Okanagan submissions to The Vinos wine commercial contest at the Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival have fallen behind their big city competitors. As a result, the Okanagan Film Commission is urging local film makers to enter a competition that will debut at the Osoyoos festival later this month. The Vinos will be held on June 10 and will recognize the best commercial for a B.C. wine. The event will include a red carpet awards ceremony at the Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos. Festival organizers say submissions are coming in daily but most have been from Vancouver and Calgary, said Jon Summerland, Okanagan Film commissioner. “Only a few have come from locals and with all due respect to the big cities, I do think local filmmakers will have an advantage in this contest. It’s a great opportunity for them.” The Vinos is the world’s first amateur wine commercial film festival and filmmakers and wine enthusiasts are competing for cash prizes and wine by producing 60-second videos of their favourite B.C. winery. Twenty-four finalists will be chosen and screened at the June 10 Vinos party. All the finalists will receive two free tickets to the Vinos red carpet awards ceremony, plus one night’s accommodation in Osoyoos during the festival. “This is a great opportunity for aspiring local filmmakers as entries will be judged by a celebrity panel and I call on all our filmmakers to rise to this challenge,” said Summerland. The prizes will include $1,500 and three cases of B.C. wine for first place, $750 and two cases of B.C. wine for second place and $250 and one case of B.C. wine for third place. For more information or to enter a video in the competition, go to the festival’s website at www.

TaylorMade Golf Tip of the Week—Spring is the time when golf returns to the Okanagan. Many people are just returning to the links now. It takes a few rounds for people’s games to return to a level that is customary for them and it usually stems from not paying attention to the short game. People immediately head to the driving range to practise their long games and hit the

big drives. By spending a little time at the putting green, hitting some chips and putts, you can alleviate much of the struggles on the course that occur from a long winter away from golf. Reducing three putts and chipping closer to the hole to achieve more one putts is the quickest and simplest way to lower your score. Visit your local CPGA professional for a lesson to brush up on your short game skills. (By Mark Lindsay, director of golf at the Okanagan Golf Club mlindsay@golfbc. com and Greg Murtland, territory manager for TaylorMade greg.murt-

Police departments across Canada have routinely treated disputes involving moving companies as a civil matter, which rarely result in any punitive measures, and often a route consumers have failed to take. In March, Toronto Police warned consumers to watch for companies that first quote a very low price, then have the client sign a contract on the day rof the move. If the client refuses

to pay more, police said movers threaten to hold their belongings in storage or dump them in the street. “The problem exists across the country but lots of people never report the issues because they are embarrassed that they didn’t heed the red flags, said Kevin Rothwell of the Better Business Bureau.” The BBB recommends the following steps to ensure you are hiring a

Parents urged to consider RESPs Over the last few weeks, thousands of Canadian high school students have been deciding on whether or not to accept university and college entrance offers. Given that total expenses for a four-year degree can run as high as $60,000 or more, some families may be struggling to find the funds to finance post-secondary education. As the costs of a postsecondary education increase, the Bank of Montreal and other Candian banks are advising Canadians to consider opening a Registered Educa-

tion Savings Plan (RESP). RESPs allow a parent or guardian to save money over many years for their child’s university or college education. They offer several advantages, including: • Tax-free growth (while the investments remain in the RESP) • Up to $500 a year in Canada Education Savings Grants ($7,200 lifetime per child) • A wide range of investment options • Lower tax rates when the growth and grants are withdrawn for post-secondary education purposes (taxed at the student’s

marginal tax rate). But simply opening an RESP is not enough. “Given the mounting costs associated with a post-secondary education, it’s critical that parents not only open an RESP as early as possible, but contribute to it regularly as well,” says David Sharone, product manager or registered plans and solutions at BMO Mutual Funds. The following RESP savings tips are offered to parents and their campusbound children: • Give the gift of an education—encourage family members and close friends to contribute to your

child’s RESP on birthdays and holidays instead of, or in addition to, conventional gifts. • Know your limits—parents, or young couples with plans to have children, should work together to determine a monthly budget that accounts for long-term savings, with a focus on RESPs. One way of saving is by having “paper bag” lunches. Bringing a lunch from home every day can save upwards of $100 per month, resulting in extra funds which can be used to increase your pre-determined RESP contributions.

PARKS ALIVE ORGANIZERS host a variety of artists through the summer for free outdoor concerts. Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR

Summer is almost here now, which is a warm welcome what with all the rainy weather we’ve been having lately, and that means an important thing for Kelowna-ites… Kelownees? Kelownians? Whichever, it means that we can all be outside again. I know many of you

have been hibernating in your homes since fall but summer in Kelowna offers so many different outdoor activities that it can sway the homiest of homebodies outside. A large part of my outdoor enjoyment is accompanied by music— there’s something about the warm air that makes you enjoy music all the more. Festivals Kelow-


na took advantage of the warm weather and people like me who enjoy listening to music in warm weather, and created Parks Alive—a non-profit organization that produces and presents live, outdoor entertainment for the community each year. “Parks Alive produces over 40 events each year, primarily in the summer months,

throughout many of Kelowna’s parks and public spaces. Entertainment is family-friendly and suitable for people of all ages and tastes. Performers range from local artists to world-class professionals, performing in a variety of musical genres and styles,” says its promo material. The Parks Alive performances are great for the audience, but equally is great for the performer. Every year the organization takes in applications from performers of different genres, styles and talent levels to fill the large number of slots available to play throughout the summer. Although all Parks Alive performances are free to attend, each performer receives an honorarium depending on different things like number of performers in a group or their experience level. So now you performers are not only out in the sun and playing to an eager-to-listen audience, but now you’re also getting paid to do it. Local singer/songwriter Ryan Donn ( is quoted on the Parks Alive website remembering great things about his perform-

A real news & entertainment column

ance: “My success in this community has a deep foundation in the support that was given to me by Parks Alive. One week I was playing at a coffee shop downtown, I had spent money on promotion, and production, got paid very little for my efforts, and two people showed up. When I played with Parks Alive the first time, the audience was great and I was paid fairly for my performance. The stark contrast between these two experiences paints a picture of the power that Parks Alive has to con-

nect a community with some of the fantastic talent in this city that might not otherwise get exposure necessary to make it to the next level.” If you’re an artist in the Okanagan and you’re looking to get some more exposure and experience aside from playing at endless coffee shops and small pubs, then Parks Alive is a great opportunity for you. You also get to play on some of Kelowna’s best outdoor stages like the Island Stage at Waterfront Park and Kelowna Pride Stage in

Kerry Park. To apply to perform for Parks Alive visit their website at www.parksalive.festivalskelowna. com, download their Interested Performer Application document, fill it out and send it off. On the other hand, if you’re interested in attending the Parks Alive performances then watch that same website above for listings on the many shows around town. Pyper Geddes is the assistant manager at Habitat in downtown Kelowna.

Streisand has long been known for her reluctance to perform live as she suffers from almost crippling stage fright. This concert was recorded, as the title suggests, in just one night— Sept. 26, 2009—at the famed but tiny jazz club The Village Vanguard, in front of a small crowd of about 125 people. Also, many of the guests were invited and close personal friends of Babs so the environment is super relaxed and convivial. In fact, things are so relaxed that Streisand sometimes starts talking to her pals in the middle of songs and that can be distracting for the average listener who just wants the straight goods. The 69-year-old Streisand struts out old faves such as Evergreen and The Way We Were while rounding out her set with classic tin pan alley and show tunes such as Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning and My Funny Valentine. For big Babs fans this is a must own as a CD/



Bruce Mitchell DVD set where things do seem very up close and personal, even if she is a tad too gabby at times. B-


I always wondered if The Rolling Stones were jealous of the Beatles’ recent massive successes with re-released, remastered albums and box sets that absolutely dominated the charts for the last several months. Well, The Stones have released their own reissue with the double CD of 1972’s Exile On Main St. that has opened at the No.3 spot on the national charts, proving the band is no slouch next to The Beatles. When this album came out in the early ’70s it came with mixed reviews for the muddy and often unfocused sound and the rambling, shambolic play of a double al-

bum—not to forget the Stones were usually really stoned when they recorded a lot of this now classic drug-driven album. Over the years the appreciation of this groundbreaking album has really elevated and Exile does have great classics like Tumbling Dice, Sweet Black Angel, Happy, Torn And Frayed, Sweet Virginia, Rocks Off, etc. This new edition is remastered so some of that muddy sound is much clearer, but more importantly, there are 10 “new” songs that the Stones finished 38 years later (even bringing back old guitarist Mick Taylor to add his flair) that greatly enhan-

ces this remarkable album although none of these songs are in the classic vein as listed above. This re-issue comes in a few formats with many more songs on the boxed edition but this 28-tracks double CD is just fine even for hard core Stones fans. A

Judas Priest were the vanguard of the new wave of British metal in the mid ’70s and they had already released six albums before this classic headbanger album, titled British Steel. But it was the band’s breakthrough in North America after several hits in their native U.K. which turned the band into arena metal/rock gods. It was the bands first top 40 USA album and today is considered their best disc to date. This is the 30th anniversary edition and it is greatly expanded. The original disc had just nine tracks but this CD/ DVD combo has 27 tunes spread over the audio and video discs. Naturally, all are reSee Mitchell B9

Kraze Legz Kaleden first winery Derülo should


erched majestically on Lookout Mountain in Kaleden you will find not only a crazy beautiful view b ut also one of our region’s new wineries: Kraze Legz Vineyard and Winery.


Jennifer Schell Husband and wife team, Gerry and Sue Thygesen, have been building their dream winery on their rich vineyard slowly over the past few years, nurturing what have become stellar grape growing vines by meticulously tending their land. Gerry and Sue, who fell madly in love in high school (now married 30 years this October), were going to wait another couple of years before launching an official winery. However, after receiving feedback like “these are some of the nicest merlot grapes I’ve seen in the Valley this year” by an accomplished local winery owner—they decided to hop to it. This busy couple seriously put their noses to the grindstone and literally ran their legs off preparing their property for their grand opening this spring—perhaps this is the meaning behind the name Kraze Legz? Actually, the name plays from a whimsical reference applying to the “legs” or trails of wine dancing on the glass fol-


GERRY AND SUE THYGESEN are ready to open their Kraze Legz Vineyard and Winery, the first in Kaleden. lowing a swirl—the name seems to hold many different meanings. Gerry explains the unique position of his vineyard as it applies to the high quality of his wines. The soil is dense with shale and fossilized sandstone—that paired with the slope of the vineyard allows maximum

morning sun exposure that bakes into the stone holding the heat throughout the day and into the evening when the lake breezes cool the vines. Most advantageous in the fall, when the early afternoon shade arrives, the conserved heat allows for additional hang time for the grapes, allowing

for more concentrated fruit flavours. Half of the nine acres are planted with merlot with the other divided with cabernet franc, chardonnay and pinot blanc. Gerry and Sue, who are also the winemakers, describe their whites as “fruit forward, unoaked, crisp and balanced.” They do not believe in manipulating the fruit and like to “let the vineyard express itself.” The whites are reasonably priced under $20 Gerry and Sue have found the entire local wine industry more than willing to share their wealth of knowledge and in particular, they would like to thank Chris Scott who has helped them immensely with the vineyard and Dan Zeller on winery equipment. Sue designed the fun 1920s-themed labels featuring a couple doing the Charleston (artist Danniel Olliges). Each wine bottle also cleverly has a Speakeasy keyhole on the back where one can peek through and magically see the dancers on the other side. New releases include: The Charleston 2009 Chardonnay, Speakeasy 2009 Rosé and The Bee’s Knees 2009 Pinot Blanc. Jennifer Schell is editor of B.C. Wine Trails Magazine.

have a lasting career Mitchell from B8 mastered but the great benefit here is that the DVD has all the songs from the original release recorded live in the same sequence, while it adds several more songs from other albums of its era. The DVD closes off with the band’s signature song and biggest hit, You’ve Got Another Thing Coming, which will delight old metal heads no end. And as Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias beautifully parodied: “Heads Down, No Nonsense Mindless Boogie” indeed. B


You would have had to have been living under a rock to not have heard Jason Derulo’s two smash hits over the last few weeks. His infectious club hit In My Head has been packing dance floors with its monolithic synth drum beat and wondrous hooks, while his synth-driven nusoul ballad Whatcha Say has been polishing many

belt buckles for the death grip, slow dance set. This is Derulo’s debut album but he was a bit of a young teen prodigy writing and help perform with the likes of Pitbull and Lil Wayne. While his musical chops are very strong and appealing on this eponymous release, Derulo could come up with better than standard love/ lust lyrics. There is one unintentionally humorous song

here that could have been a SNL comedy sketch. On What If, the singer is speed dating when he starts to describe wedding scenes and the domestic fireplace before he even gets to know the girl’s name. Still, with two huge hits under his belt, it will be interesting to see if the young Jason Derulo can maintain the momentum.

Kubota brings one massive work of art to Kelowna Art Gallery


he Kelowna Art Gallery is excited and pleased to be bringing Toronto-based senior Canadian artist Nobuo Kubota to town this month. Opening Saturday, June 5 and running until July 18, will be his solo exhibition Hokusai Revisited, curated by Toronto-based artist and curator Diane Pugen for the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa. The mammoth single work in the show resembles a gigantic wave form rendered in bent strips of wood. It will be located in the middle of our large gallery space and will be lit by moving coloured projections of water that will enliven and dissolve its surfaces. The work relates directly to Kubota’s fascination with and research into motion, whether it be the movement of sound or forms, or movement that is not visible to the human eye, such as the Zen notion of rocks growing. The work’s title is a humble nod to the great Japanese 19th century printmaker, Hokusai, and his most famous work, The Great Wave. Kubota’s family of origin moved to Can-


Liz Wylie ada from Japan in the early years of the 20th century for economic opportunity. In 1941, when the artist was nine years old, they were all interned as so-called enemy aliens in a detention camp in the Slocan Valley until the end of the Second World War. For a short while afterward the family lived in the Okanagan Valley, but then relocated to Toronto. Kubota graduated from the University of Toronto in architecture and worked as an architect for 10 years before turning to producing visual art in the 1960s. He was largely inspired and encouraged in this by the artists in the stable of the Isaacs Gallery in Toronto, and he was a founding member of the Artists’ Jazz Band (playing alto sax) with the artists in that group. In 1970 he made a year-long visit to Japan to


HOKUSAI REVISITED, 2008, laminated pine painted and unpainted fir, video projection, 10.2 x 3.6 x 4.2 metres. delve into the various aspects of his own ancestral heritage (he comes from a long line of Samurai) and he lived for a time as a novice in a Buddhist

monastery there. Kubota has sought to integrate all these areas of knowledge and experience into the explorations of his art practice.

The Kelowna Art Gallery mounted a solo show of Kubota’s work in 1999, called The Exploration of Possibility. We are delighted he has returned to

visit us on the occasion of the exhibition of his 2008 Hokusai Revisited piece and are both pleased and honoured that he will be giving a sound perform-

MLA’s antismoking message

Sending a package? Get a courier. Need the news? Read the the Capital News

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick warned the B.C. legislature Monday about the health impacts of tobacco use as he marked World No Tobacco Day. “Imagine a world where people focus on health and not addiction and where people don’t have to worry about second hand smoke exposure. We can start now, because, May 31, is World No Tobacco Day, said Letnick. World No Tobacco Day was created in 1987 and encouraged a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption. According to the World Health Organization tobacco use is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced. Letnick said tobacco is a risk factor for six of the leading causes of death in the world, including cardiovascular disease, lung disease and several types of cancer. “The WHO attributes one in 10 deaths worldwide to tobacco use, which equates to 5.4 million annually,” he said. “By 2030, they estimate that the number of tobacco-related deaths each year will have risen to eight million people.” This year the WHO theme is gender and tobacco, with an emphasis on marketing to women. It includes an advertising campaign focused on women with the theme “smoking is ugly.” In British Columbia fewer women smoke than men, with approximately 12.5 per cent of women and 17 per cent of men. “B.C. continues to support British Columbians in quitting smoking with tobacco-free incentives, initiatives and cessation programs like the B.C. Lung Association’s quit now services that can help,” said Letnick. “Since 2001, we have mostly seen a decrease in our provincial smoking rate, which is more than five per cent lower than it was 10 years ago and is the lowest smoking rate in Canada—14.7 per cent, approximately 540,000 smokers.” The local MLA added that eliminating tobacco use is just one way British Columbians can lead a healthier lifestyle.
