TO Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

I

f you’ve had a busy summer, the trilling of the school bell might just be music to your ears. Many parents will miss the fun of summer with their kids, but rare is the parent who isn’t at least a little relieved to think about the routine of the school year launching again. Getting ready for the first Tuesday after Labour Day is a process fraught with expectation. Some of it is simple consumerism—the right backpack needs to be found, etc. Other issues are far more important, like how to find the best and right after school care. The litany of items to be checked off the list is daunting, school supplies (or a cheque to the school), extra-curricular activities and the attendant scheduling, plus making certain your child is mentally and emotionally ready to go back to the daily grind. It all adds up to the last few days of summer being anything but carefree for mom and dad. There are some tips and tricks to make back to school better and community organizations which go the extra mile to step into the breach when writing another cheque is simply not an option. For many kids back to school is a source of anticipatory joy. That is just how Grade 2 teacher Deb Winsby likes them. Winsby has taught at Helen Gorman Elementary in West Kelowna since 1993, most of that has been teaching the primary grades. “I like them to walk in with some confidence, excitement. In Grade 2 that is easy, kids have been through Grade 1, they get it. So in Grade 2 there is some optimism.” DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

CLOSE-UP

For whom the (school) bell tolls Winsby has the experience to realize that a parent knows their child best and one of the top ways to prepare a nervous little one is to encourage them to think about school in a positive way. “If you have a nervous child, try to get at the reason why they are not excited about school and listen to them. Then talk about and encourage the positive things they do like.” If back to school is emotional for your child despite your best efforts, then Winsby recommends a quick visit to the teacher. “I like a parent to come in and see me so I’m prepared. We aren’t mind readers and with 23 little bodies and people to get to know it helps to understand when maybe a little extra attention is needed.” Strong communication between the parent and teacher combined with a steady routine at school can usually overcome initial jitters. When it comes to the routine of homework Winsby hopes parents remember that a five-hour day is a long time for younger children and the homework rule of thumb is about 10 minutes per day per grade. “My personal philosophy in the younger grades is to have a routine where you read every day and do a little math and you should be fine.” One school-related item that can be difficult to deal with is the back to school fee sheet that comes home the first day or two of school. The fees cover cultural events and

in our schools,” she says, “yet our democracy rests on the education of our students.” You can help with lightening the load on teachers and parents who need a little extra this fall. Staples, at the Dilworth Shopping Centre fundraises with their customers to supply students in need. The store takes donations at the till and puts them towards in-house gift certificates which are distributed through local teachers. It is done so that teachers can assess students in the greatest need and make sure there are new supplies for students who might otherwise go without or feel stigmatized for not having the latest equipment. One of the most visible signs of back to school is the backpack. Each year hundreds of Kelowna families participate in the Victory Life Fellowship Back to School Bash. Last week, 675 people attended the event and 500 backpacks were handed out, while 180 free haircuts were done to help get ready for the big first day at school. “There are people who really do need it,” says Diana Tripke, the event’s organizer. “This is a fun event and it is about our generous community giving back. The events keep increasing in size,” says Tripke. Getting your child to the opening bell requires different planning for working parents than the bell at the end of the school day. After school care for children of work-

a school supply bill. At many elementary schools there are standardized lists of school supplies bought in bulk by the district and then parents have the option of purchasing the complete kit from the school. At middle school and high school, there is a text book caution fee and the field trips certainly do not cost less than elementary school. “The downloading of fees onto parents is happening because the schools are being starved of funds,” says Alice Rees, president of the Central Okanagan Teachers Association. The direct fees hit people at the economic margins the hardest, says Rees. Usually it is single parents, mostly mothers who find the fees unmanageable. Rees estimates that about one in 30 children in the school system will have a parent who cannot make the fees. Usually the school will find supplies somewhere or the teacher will step in to fill in the gap with the general classroom supplies many teachers fund themselves. Rees says it is a well known fact that teachers spend an average of $1,000 to $1,500 per year from their own pocket on assorted items for the classroom. It has not been a welcome trend in the profession but a move of desperation. That need should be met with government funding declares Rees: “The costs of public education are being downloaded to the parent.” “We are recognizing the greater losses of services and programming

since the beginning of August, from school bags to shoes,” laughs Jeffery. “The oldest one had a summer job, so she bought more of what she liked this year. The younger ones have some handme-downs.” One mom of three girls visiting Kelowna from Chilliwack was equally blunt. “One brand new outfit only. Everything else gets spread out

While it is still warm in the fall they can wear their summer clothes.” But the back to school budget somehow gets managed, and every year is a big year for a child.

ing parents is always a primary concern. Alison Graf, the general manager of community and strategic initiatives for the YM-YWCA recommends that parents look for a licensed program, ideally close to their own school or neighborhood to build familiarity and a healthy staff/student ratio. “Be confident that the program you choose supports your family values,” says Graf. “Remember school is a big day and kids need to relax too.” For parents whose children participate or want to participate in after school activities the scheduling can be a logistical puzzle worthy of military precision. The new expansion at the Rutland YM-YWCA has a huge new slate of programming for fall for all ages to take advantage of the new gym and play spaces. For extracurricular sports with intensity Graf urges parents to remember, “Not ever sport is going to fly with your child. Create a balance and go with what resonates in your child.” There comes an age when parents role in picking and choosing evolves. At some point in the early teen years the environment changes and the priorities veer to social cues. For retailers, the “tween” and early teen cohort are big business.

Kelowna issues antiabortion proclamation September 24 to October 2 has quietly been proclaimed as Protect Human Life Week in Kelowna. It is the fourth consecutive year the Mayor Sharon Shepherd has granted the pro life proclamation at the request of the Kelowna Right to Life Society. In part, the proclamation reads: “It is the intention of this proclamation to promote respect and protection to all human life, especially the infirm, the aged, the handicapped and the unborn.” Kelowna Right to Life executive director Marlon Bartram said that the statements contained within

the document come at a crucial time. The society claims abortion—what it calls “the destruction of unborn life”—continues “unabated” and that legal protection for those at the end of life is coming under attack. “At KGH, the killing of unborn children continues,” said Bartram. Abortion has been a core medical service at Kelowna General Hospital for the last 11 years. Meanwhile, Canada’s laws prohibiting assisted suicide and euthanasia are being challenged in the courts. “Abortion, euthanasia,

assisted suicide, even embryonic stem cell research; all these acts are direct affronts to the dignity of human life and violate the very basic principle that it is wrong to kill innocent human beings.” Kelowna Right to Life has a number of events planned for the week-long event, including a Walk for Life fundraiser in Mission Creek Park on Sept. 24, a free informational session, a pro-life film festival and the annual Life Chain. For more information on Protect Human Life Week and the Kelowna Right to Life Society go to prolifekelowna.com or call 250 862-8202.

and troublemakers much more quickly than they expected, a review of the Vancouver Stanley Cup riot has found. Police started out with 446 officers on the streets of downtown Vancouver the night of June 15, and had 928 on duty by the time the situation was brought under control, said a report issued Thursday by two reviewers appointed by the B.C. government. Unlike the 1994 Stanley Cup riot, police from different cities were able to communicate, but due to a lack of practice working together, there was still confusion, the report said. Another difference from 1994 was the expansion of the SkyTrain service in the region, which rapidly delivered many

more people to the downtown core. The police “meet and greet” technique that was effective during similar downtown gatherings at the Olympics in February could not function because of the size and early arrival of the crowd, said Doug Keefe, the former Nova Scotia deputy minister who conducted the review along with former Vancouver Olympic CEO John Furlong. The report makes 53 recommendations to prevent or contain future incidents, including having the RCMP and Vancouver Police tactical squads train together. Police and fire services across the region should have a clear framework for covering major regional events. Only two charges were

laid as of this week against rioters. Vancouver Police launched a website Tuesday with pictures to help the public identify offenders caught by the many cameras that were used the night of the riot. VPD Chief Jim Chu said he wants a full review of the pictures, 1,600 hours of video and other evidence so people who committed major offences don’t get off with lesser punishment. Premier Christy Clark said she is as frustrated as anyone that more charges haven’t been laid, but police are trying to be as thorough as possible. “It was those drunken louts who caused this problem,” Clark said. “It wasn’t police, it wasn’t other citizens. It was them.”

Crash closes Highway 97 stretch

BRUCE MCAULIFFE/VERNON MORNING STAR

AN ACCIDENT during the morning rush on Highway 97 Thursday, near Wood

Central Okanagan Traffic Services are continuing to investigate a two-vehicle crash on Hiway 97 near Wood Lake just south of Oyama Thursday morning that closed the highway for two hours. The accident occurred around at 8:30 a.m. Investigators say a Honda Civic traveling southbound on Highway 97 drifted off the road and onto the right soft shoulder and then veered left, over correcting, crossed the center line and struck a northbound

minivan head-on. Witnesses also report that it appeared as though the driver was not paying attention to the road. The 42-year-old driver of the Honda Civic was taken to Kelowna General Hospital with serious internal injuries. He was not believed to be wearing a seatbelt, said police. The 32-year-old driver of the minivan and an adult male passenger received minor injuries and were also transported to hospital.

Both have since been released. Both drivers and the passenger are from Kelowna. The police investigation is continuing and police spoke to several witnesses at the scene. Once all of the information is gathered, police will be able to determine the cause of the collision and if the driver was distracted. Alcohol is not considered to be a factor. Vernon Morningstar

Teacher strike will shorten school day Mantler court date set Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The B.C. Teacher’s Federation served strike notice on the Central Okanagan School District late Wednesday afternoon. The move means that unless ordered by the B.C. Labour Relations Board to stop, teachers will start their job action at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, the first day back to school for thousands of local elementary and secondary students. According to the school district, it has been told by the BCTF that the first phase of the action will include a withdrawal of administrative services and the removal of teacher

Hugh Gloster supervision responsibilities outside of instructional time. Regular classes will continue. Superintendent of schools Hugh Gloster said an immediate result will the elimination of the 15-minute break during the day for elemen-

tary students and that will mean the school day will be 15 minutes shorter than usual. “Accordingly, at the end of the day, students in all schools will be excused 15 minutes earlier than usual,� he said. School bus services will have their schedules adjusted to accommodate the earlier dismissal. The school district plans to send home a letter with students on Tuesday explaining the ramifications of the initial phase of job action by the teachers. The letter will also go to parent groups and individual school parent advisory councils. Anyone with ques-

tions is asked to contact Gloster. In the letter, the school district includes a lengthy list of activities the teachers will not participate in and advises parents of students who do not ride the school bus to have their children arrive as close to the school starting time as possible and leave immediately after dismissal at the end of the day. It also says principals and vice-principals may be limited in their abilities to talk to parents about their childrens’ progress in school due to carrying an extra workload as a result of the teachers’ job action. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Civic election candidate list grows The current cast of Kelowna city council are queuing up to take another run at political office in the Nov. 19 election. All incumbents, except for Coun. Andre Blanleil, have now publicly signalled their intentions to run again, picking up nomination papers or issuing press releases. Mayor Sharon Shepherd was first out of the gate, announcing earlier this month that she would run for a third term and the rest are falling in line. The latest incumbent to signal his intentions, and pick up a nomination package from City Hall, is first-term councillor Charlie Hodge, who announced his decision to run for a second term Thursday. “For the past three years I’ve had the honour and privilege to serve residents of Kelowna as a member of council. It’s been a lot of work, not all of it easy, but I love the

job,� he said. “I’m proud of my efforts to assist the community and hope I’m bestowed the honour of serving Kelowna folks for another term.� Also seeking another term is Coun. Robert Hobson, who announced Wednesday he’s ready for his ninth election campaign. The perennial political favourite said it will be his last should he be elected. Coun. Luke Stack came out of the gate, and announced his desire for another term in office earlier in the week, saying he’s enthusiastic about the many initiatives council is currently working on, such as implementing the new Downtown Plan, designing a long-term plan for Kelowna Police and Protective Services, constructing the new Seniors Centre, and planning a new recreation park in Glenmore. “These projects are

crucial for the wellbeing of Kelowna residents, and I believe we can negotiate a way to accomplish them while keeping property taxes in check,� he said. Another first-time councillor, Graeme James, has also picked up a nomination papers, for the upcoming election, as have Couns. Michele Rule and Kevin Craig. Angela Reid-Nagy has said she will run again. While picking up a package is the first big step in the election process, city clerk Stephen Fleming pointed out that there’s a big difference between getting the paperwork and going through with the process. “We had 64 individuals pick up one or more packages in 2008—five mayor; 51 councillor and 15 school trustee packages went out—while the ballot had two mayoral, 36 councillor and 10 school trustee names on it,� he said.

Other people who have picked up packages and have allowed their names to be public include: Mayor: James Murphy Kim Ouellette Diana Van Beest Councillor: James Murphy Carol Gran Bobby Kennedy Mary-Ann Graham Tisha Kalmanovitch Peter McFadden Andrew Powell Elizabeth Fehr Mohini Singh Larry Gray Ken Chung Colin Basran Gail Given Ron Ready Graeme James William Kovacic Michael Fraser Darrin Fiddler David Boyko Scott A.

The Kelowna Mountie charged with assault last winter after he was filmed kicking a suspect who was on all fours in the head, finally has a court date. Const. Geoff Mantler will be in court for three weeks starting Nov. 26, 2012, to deal with an assault charge that stemmed from injuring Kelowna resident Buddy Tavar-

es, 51, as he apprehended him after a call from the Harvest Golf Club. After the arrest, Tavares faced a charge for careless use of a firearm, which related to the 911 call that brought police to the scene. That charge was later dropped. Mantler’s lawyer, Neville McDougall, said what RCMP Const. Geoff Mantler knew and believed before he kicked Buddy Tavares in the head

will be the keystone of his defence when his case goes to trial next year, pointing out that police were responding to more than a complaint about birds being shot at the golf course. Mantler, who is currently suspended without pay, will also be in court July 2012 to face another charge of assault causing bodily harm stemming from the arrest of Manjit Singh Bhatti.

It’s typically assumed that playing video games for an excessive amount of time is a bad thing. Geoff Webb and his friends are proving that the opposite is true. Webb and a group of video-game enthusiasts are currently live streaming a 96-hour marathon gaming session while attempting to raise money

Rather than gaming for one evening, I figured: Let’s do four days and raise money for KGH,” said Webb.

Webb doesn’t anticipate a lot of sleep in the next four days. “There will definitely be people pulling allnighters.” Within the first 30 minutes of game playing, the gamers had 14 viewers watching their every move online and 50 people who were attending their Facebook event. Most impressively, $220 had already been raised for the KGH’s pediatric psychiatric unit. “We got the local bridge club to donate a couple hundred dollars. Whatever support we get from the Internet, that will be huge too. Anywhere that we can get the donations is really great because this is for a great cause.” Funds raised from the event will be designated to updating the gaming consoles and games used by the youth during their stay in the psychiatric unit.

It’s clear, there’s science involved in the sharing of water

I

t’s easy to become complacent about water when that big lake that runs down the middle of the valley fills right up in spring and then begins to flood what is usually lakeshore. However, that’s the uncommon, rather than the usual scenario. A particularly deep snowpack and late melt and runoff this year caused flooding around the valley and high elevation hiking this summer frequently resulted in sightings of snow still remaining from last winter. We’ve had very weird weather this year, and according to the experts we can expect more of the same. That is, more weird weather, not more of what we got this year. One of the features of climate change is extreme weather conditions such as record snowfalls, rainstorms, heat and drought. And that’s one good reason to be aware of an international process currently underway that

the issue, you have to look at the big picture. The Okanagan basin, our watershed, is ultimately part of the watershed of the Columbia River, in that the Okanagan River flows into the Columbia south of the border and becomes part of the flows that are dumped into the Pacific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon, west of Portland. Sockeye salmon— those that succeed in navigating around the many man-made dams on the mighty Columbia and its tributaries—return up the system to Osoyoos Lake and even upstream in the Okanagan River to spawn. In fact, there was a record run last fall. The Okanagan Nation Alliance is working toward removing obstacles along the Okanagan River to permit the sockeye to return to Okanagan Lake, where they once spent a portion of their life cycle, far from the ocean. Both the question of water quantity flowing south into the U.S. and of

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves could have long-term impacts on our water supplies. In the next couple of years the orders governing water levels in the cross-border Osoyoos Lake in the southern part of the valley must be renewed by the International Joint Commission, and one of the considerations will be changing them to require certain flows be maintained across that boundary. In a drought year, that could be critical to water users upstream. Your water use could be curtailed in order to satisfy those orders if they require that certain flows across the border are maintained. To fully understand

sockeye salmon returning upstream from the U.S. are issues that will be discussed in presentations by top experts from Canada and the U.S. at a water science forum in Osoyoos Sept. 18, 19 and 20 that’s open to the public. Speakers will include Washington senator Bob Morton, B.C. MLA John Slater, First Nations representatives, federal and provincial government and university scientists, private hydrologists and those involved with the Okanagan Basin Water Board. We can’t survive without water in this valley, so it’s a subject that’s of critical importance to us. By being informed and involved we can have some control over how it’s managed. Attending conferences such as this are one way we can learn and then make decisions based on knowledge. For more info on the conference, go to the website: www.obwb.ca

Premier kills talk of an early election Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

Premier Christy Clark has ended months of speculation, announcing she will wait until the scheduled date of May 2013 to face the voters in a general election. Since winning the B.C. Liberal leadership vote in February, Clark has ques-

tioned whether she has a sufficient mandate to govern until the election date specified in provincial law. She reversed that position in interviews with selected Vancouver media outlets Wednesday. Clark denied that the defeat of the harmonized sales tax or party polling changed her mind. In various interviews, she em-

phasized the instability of the world economy and the lack of a public appetite for another election this year. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the government’s unpopularity after the twoyear HST furore and its lack of new ideas are the reason for the reversal. After being sworn in as premier, Clark ap-

pointed an election readiness committee chaired by cabinet minister Rich Coleman and Brad Bennett, son of former premier Bill Bennett. Election preparations recently cost Clark a cabinet minister, as Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner stepped down as attorney-general in August, citing the pressure to

name a campaign team for a possible fall election. B.C.’s election law specifies a provincial election every four years, but reserves the traditional right of the government to deal with unusual circumstances such as death or resignation. Tom Fletcher works in the Black Press Victoria bureau.

BERNARD AVENUE LOCAL AREA SERVICE City Council gives notice of: Bylaw 10557 & Bylaw 10558 Establishment and Loan Authorization Bylaws for Local Area Service for Bernard Avenue Revitalization A portion of the cost of the proposed construction on Bernard Avenue is to be paid by the property owners of the parcels within the entire service area and is to be financed through debenture borrowing. The annual debt repayment costs are to be recovered from the affected properties (see map) on the basis of an annual local service parcel tax. The total estimated cost is $12,139,900. Estimated Funding to be Recovered Total Proposed Amount borrowed under Bylaw 10518 $1,250,000 General Reserves $224,110 Total Estimated to be borne $1,474,110 by the property owners and be recovered by Local Area Service Parcel Tax The local service parcel tax will be imposed for 20 years (if a one-time payment is not made).

One-Time Payment

The estimated one time payment is $1,090 per lineal metre of frontage The one-time payment must be paid before the loan is incurred. Any owner whose parcel is subject to being specially charged may elect to make a onetime payment of the portion of the cost of construction assessed upon that parcel within sixty (60) days of receipt of written instructions from the City of Kelowna Collector or on any anniversary date of the loan borrowed by the City under the bylaw establishing the Local Area Service. The final cost to be borne by the property owner will only be known when construction is completed. The amount of the onetime cash payment that may be made in subsequent years after the loan has been incurred will vary depending upon a number of factors including the year of payment, the interest rate of the loan and the rates of return on the sinking fund and cash commutation funds.

Annual Local Service Parcel Tax The estimated annual service tax is $93 per lineal metre of frontage for each of 20 years

If an owner does not elect to make the onetime payment as outlined above, the property will be levied an annual local service tax in each of twenty (20) succeeding years. Questions regarding payment options can be directed to George King, Revenue Manager, Financial Services at 250-469-8564.

So far, school not the place to find inspiration for one student To the editor: In response to the Aug. 26 column by Jane Muskens: How Do You Inspire Young People to be All That They Can Be?” The solution to low voter turnout and political apathy among young Canadians willN not be found in our educational system. As a 17-year-old student about to begin my final year of high school, the most emphasized theme throughout my education has not been that this education will allow me to rally with others to, in Jack Layton’s words, “Change this country and this world.” Instead, I have learned that I go to school so that I can go to university, which will allow me to get a good job and in turn, enough money to buy a nice house and car.

There are time travel tales ruined with romance, alien abductions that are too friendly and, worst of all, the various incarnations of young-womanconquers-a-man’s- world, with a failure drenched twist. The latter goes as so: A lovable lass with a heart of gold and an under-utilized, Einstein-like brain, should be a shoe-in for Top Dog, at Nameless Corporation.

That said, there’s a world

outside my cubicle that’s a little less cut and dry, and the bogeyman has taken a more realistic form. Courtesy of a new study from the Conference Board of Canada, the country learned this week that men are still more than twice as likely to hold a senior executive position, as they were in 1987. In fact, women made up almost 48 per cent of the Canadian labour force but less than one per cent are in top management spots. “Women have made great progress in many areas of society over the past 22 years, but not in the ranks of senior management positions,” said board president Anne Golden in a release. “Now that the rousing ear-

ly days of feminism are behind us, perhaps we have become complacent about the success of women in senior management.” The report offered a shudder-inducing data and quote package I struggle to digest. It’s clear women are no less capable and, from the femmes I know, they’re no less driven. So, what is it about the top that’s so prohibitive? Perhaps, the years and movies since 1987 have lulled us into a friendly fugue state, and it’s time for a shake down just in time for Labour Day. Or maybe we should ask ourselves: What would Anne Hathaway and her Hollywood ilk, not do? Kathy Michaels is a reporter for the Capital News.

LETTERS ▼ ONE-SIDED STORY

RCMP version of traffic accident, reported on web page ‘highly offensive,’ full of ‘falsities,’ contains ‘bald-faced lie’ and ‘inaccurate’ To the editor: I would like to thank Paul Hergott for his impartial and unbiased column in the Aug 11 Capital News: Cyclists Deserve More Respect From Motorists in reference to an article published on (a local news web page) Aug. 8 about a cyclist involved in an motor vehicle accident with an SUV. I was the cyclist involved in the articles. I heard about the report on (the news web page) a few days after the accident but it was reported that the cyclist in question was biking recklessly and at fault so I immediately assumed that the article was referring to a different accident and I never read the article at that time. I only learned differently a few days ago and am shocked and highly offended by the article and its numerous falsities.

An “eye witness” reported that I almost hit another car before I struck the SUV. This is a bald-faced lie. My nearly hitting another car never happened. The reference made to the cyclist running into the SUV is also inaccurate. I was cut off by the SUV and did everything in my power to avoid collision with the vehicle and this is evident in the lack of damage done to my bike. I could go on and on pointing out the inconsistencies in the article. What is also upsetting though, is that the majority of this reporter’s information seems to have been obtained from the RCMP officer at the scene. The officer in question spent all of half a minute questioning me. He asked me two questions: What direction I was travelling in and the location of my bike at the time of the accident.

Bottom line is that I have been cycling for over 20 years without injury or incident and, like 99 per cent of cyclists, I am hyper-aware of my surroundings and the vehicles around me while cycling and obey the rules of the road. The article on (the news web page) painted a very biased picture of events and the lack of proper reporting of these events by the reporter in question I find appalling. At no time was I ever asked by (the news web page) reporter for my side of the story and at no time was I ever asked by the reporter if the events being reported were truthful or accurate.

▼ CROSS BORDER LIQUOR LAWS

Vintage liquor laws too lucrative to update To the editor: This response is to ryour editorial that appeared in the Capital News of Aug. 11: Time to Rethink Vintage Wine laws. t In 1948, at age 10, I fmade my annual journey by CNR passenger train from Edmonton to Vantcouver at the beginning of July and return before kSeptember school started. Before arrival at Jasper on the westbound that day, I had heard many adults talk about B.C. being dry due to a strike. When the train made its 30-minute stop at Jasper, there was a mad dash by many persons to the Alberta government liquor store who returned with purchases. Under way again, the train proceeded west. Then a sudden stop— short of an emergency brake application—occurred at Red Pass Jct., B.C., situated on the shore of Moose Lake whose outflow is the start of the Fraser River, and just into

B.C. A contingency of RCMP officers boarded the train and made a thorough search confiscating all the liquor purchases. The train was delayed about one hour during this debacle which left a lot of passengers with sad faces. Fact learned: one was not allowed to transport liquor of any type across a provincial boundary. Later on, as a CNR employee, I noted that the dining car on the transcontinental train cycled between Vancouver and Winnipeg. On this car were separate steel cabinets controlled by the chief steward, one for liquor sales while the car was in B.C., one for Alberta, one for Saskatchewan, and one for Manitoba. The steward, for example, would stop sales of B.C. Liquor Board controlled items, make a tally, lock and seal the compartment, and as the train had now entered Alberta, he would open the Alberta compartment for sales. Once, while assigned

to Kamloops Jct., B.C., I was dispatched to Red Pass Jct. on a freight. At Red Pass I had to remove the live wiring to the locomotive water tank in order for its demolition—no more steam locomotives. A person in plain clothes who stood beside me watching, struck up a conversation, then invited me over to his lakefront cabin for coffee. Turned out to be a Mountie. This territory, he related, was his assignment which included interdiction of alcohol traffic B.C. to Alberta and Alberta to B.C. in the days before the Yellowhead Highway was built. After three hours the next westbound freight stopped for me and returned me to Kamloops Jct. Later on in my career, I worked for Canadian Pacific Airlines in the properties and facilities department. At the Vancouver Operations Centre, and in the stores department, there were two federal government bond rooms, one domestic and

Education needs re-evaluation from A16 tential, school is doing nothing to tell us that. Passion for learning and discovering truth has been replaced by answers copied from the back of the textbook in order to receive a number on a piece of paper at the end of the

year (not to forget the real goal—a nice house). This breeds disdain, not the hope and optimism that are apparently necessary to bring about positive change. It is not enough to simply be educated; students have to know what the purpose is. And if it is

one international. There, the bar trollies from flights were unloaded, cleaned, restocked and sealed in preparation for the next outbound flight. In the domestic bond room, liquor sales were handled in a similar manner as the dining car, mentioned above. There sales were of the miniature bottle type, with liquor shipped “in bond” from the various provinces. On the international side, all incoming trollies had the contents stripped and sorted. Australian products, (wine included), would be put in a trolley and sealed for sales out of Fiji southbound. Sales out of Vancouver would be Canadian stock. All opened large bottles would have their contents poured down the drain. In summary, I do not think provincial governments are willing to change the laws that were introduced back in 1927. This revenue-generating

business is quite lucrative. Technically, transporting the wine you mentioned is a criminal act as it now stands. To carry your editorial further, in my career I have had similar jurisdictional problems as I worked in the provinces of B.C., Alberta and Manitoba. For example, neither province would honor the other’s drivers license or trade certificates. Going from B.C. to Alberta for example, one would have to write the trade exam before one could receive a license to work. In my case, the railway work was under federal jurisdiction and exempt from provincial regulations. In closing, I would like to see all the vintage laws be reworked and brought into today’s context. All jurisdictions should be covered by one law “from coast to coast to coast.” George Bergson, Kelowna

After HST vote it’s all about the Liberals holding on to power

I

think we know why our premier, Christy Clark, was so ambivalent about whether she would call a fall election when the HST results came in. For, if one thing is cer-

tain after the HST referendum, voters in B.C. aren’t too happy with the governing Liberals; it doesn’t seem to matter who is at the helm. Clark has now ruled out an election before

2013, so blame Gordon Campbell for getting the party in a tenuous spot with the mishandling of the implementation of the HST if you must, but it seems the majority in B.C.ers aren’t letting the

party off for past issues just because it has a new leader. Looking at the results of the HST vote, it’s solidly along party lines. All the NDP-held ridings voted to dump the HST.

This summer could be a scorcher.

What was telling, however, is that half the Liberal ridings voted to trash the HST, as well. In other words, forgetting the popular vote for a moment (55 per cent opposed to the HST), 60 ridings voted against the HST; 25 in favour of it. Had that been a provincial election, it seems pretty clear we’d have a new premier and a new party in charge. So, Clark knows the odds aren’t in favour of her keeping her job right now. Normally, the smart, strategic move to do when a new leader comes in is to have a quick election and get a four-year mandate while the honeymoon is on. Get the hype of a fresh, new approach on the table and renew the party’s spot leading the province. Except, it doesn’t seem to be going in that direction. Right from the beginning Christy Clark has come up against a lessthat-supportive audience. When she ran for the by-election in Vancouver-Point Grey, she only inched her way into the spot. It’s Liberal turf, formerly Gordon Campbell’s seat, yet the NDP candidate finished strongly. Clark should have easily walloped him. In fact, Clark had a lower percentage of votes than Campbell did in the 2009 election. The NDP declared that their victory. Clark’s strategy to not show up at the all-candidates meetings almost cost her the seat. Then, even with the promise of lowering the

NUTSHELL

Shelley Nicholl HST by two per cent, the Liberals did not get the support to move on with the HST. That was a huge incentive to keep the HST, but the majority of voters weren’t going to buy into it. I wonder what the vote would have been if the government didn’t offer the two per cent discount? The HST voter turnout was slightly better than in the last provincial election. That not only signalled a defeat for the HST, it showed how anxious voters were to voice their discontent. That’s 1.6 million people who came out just to vote on a tax. Fewer people came out in 2009 to elect their leaders and less than that voted on the electoral reform question. Are taxes more important than leaders and fairer voting procedures? Did voters take the time to fill out and mail in their ballot just because they didn’t like the HST? That’s the question Clark should be weighing. For, even though the NDP is a party more likely not to cut taxes, right now, as the only significant alternative, it’s looking pretty good. Ironically, Clark may suffer the same fate of the province’s first female premier, Rita Johnston, who went down to defeat quickly in 1991 after

taking power because the voters couldn’t shake their grumblings about the previous premier, none other than Bill Vander Zalm, who’s currently leading the anti-HST pack. Ain’t B.C. politics fun? The other piece in the spectrum is that there have been quiet discussions about another party coming forward, one that’s on the right, but a different choice than the Liberals. It hasn’t materialized yet, and wouldn’t be ready for a fall election and may not happen at all. But, after seeing the HST results and having more time to prepare for a May 2013 election, another party has time to rally. The new party would split the right votes, allowing the NDP an easier win. Again, Clark needs to ponder that. The Liberals have some thinking to do and the HST vote gave them a clear picture of what would happen if an election were called now. Clark can take some time to govern and show B.C. what she can do. It’s a risk, but probably the better option. It would likely be wise to at least wait until the aftermath of the HST vote has subsided, the teachers’ negotiations are done and the floundering economy gets perking before seeking a new mandate. That is, if she still wants the job. Shelley Nicholl is the author of The Case for Having Children...And Other Assorted Irrational Ideas and owns Mad Squid Ink. madsquid@shaw.ca

Winners wins over West Kelowna

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

More than 300 people spent their Thursday morning lining up to get their first taste of Canada’s largest off-price retailer’s newest store in West Kelowna.

Located at 3614 Carrington Rd., the West Kelowna Winners opened its doors at 9 a.m. yesterday. Store manager Patti Lennox said that the turnout exceeded her expectations. “This is higher than what we were anticipat-

ing,” said Lennox. “It was a great turnout of people that came into the store. It was nice to see the lineup; they went right around the side of the building.” Just before 9 a.m., the ribbon was cut by the first customer who had been waiting outside in

the chilly weather for over three hours. By 9:45 a.m., the queue for the tills contained over 50 people. Lennox said that the reactions from customers were positive. “People are absolutely amazed and quite excited. They’ve been anticipat-

ing (the opening) for quite some time.” Lennox lives in West Kelowna and said that she enjoys living and working in the community. Her experience has given her a solid grasp on the Winners brand. “I’ve been in manage-

ment for quite a few years: I’ve been with this company for six years. I was the store manager of the Vernon Winners for nearly five years before I came here,” she said. The first Winners opened over 25 years ago and there are 210 stores.

propriate schedules for both. This is crucial. There are no cookie-cutter solutions; obviously, the training and competition schedule for alpine skiing is quite different from that for track and field. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another example, a young biathlon athlete: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because my sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competitive season goes through the end of semester one and the beginning of semester two, I cannot create an easier semester and a harder semester which would help out and this season I had to miss world youth championships partially because it happened during my three provincial exams.â&#x20AC;? The world youth championships would be a terrible opportunity to miss, one this young athlete will probably regret for a long time. Who knows how many possible Olympic champions B.C. and Canada have missed out on because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support them? What these student athletes neededâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and hopefully now have availableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is flexible and adaptable schedules. Ordinarily, studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; days will be split evenly between studying and training. But when they have to be elsewhere, PacificSport student athletes will have a flexible schedule, that can make use of distance or online coursesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; again with a schedule individually tailored to fit their skills and needs. Thirty students may not sound like a lot, and

emember high school? Keeping up with subjects like math, social studies and chemistry was essentially your full-time job. Now imagine trying to juggle two full-time jobs at once. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly the situation high school-aged athletes faceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially at an elite level where the training and competition schedules are necessarily demanding. In July 2010, Canadian Sport Centre Pacific released a report suggesting high-performance athletes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive the support they needed to manage both academics and athletics. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one exampleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a high school student and top-level gymnast: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My high school is very supportive of my training schedule. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still really difficult to do subjects like math, chemistry, and physics, etc., when you are required to miss up to eight weeks of classes per school year.â&#x20AC;? Even with a very understanding and supportive school, eight weeks is no small amount of classroom time to miss. But if we want to support young athletes, we have to find ways to help them develop school and training schedules that work for them and their sport. Now, they will get that chance. Starting now, some of B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-performance athletes can do just that. Two pilot sport schools, including Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PacificSport Okanagan, will each welcome 15 student athletes in Septemberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thanks to a $60,000 investment from the province. While this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first sport school in the country, this is a genuinely innovative program. Working with staff, each student ends up with a personalized learning plan, with academic and athletic goalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and ap-

arkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. It develops gradually, often starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. The symptoms can vary from person to person and gradually develop, often unnoticed at first. Symptoms may begin on one side of the body and eventually affect both sides, although one side may remain worse than the other. Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include tremors, slowed or delayed move-

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman ments, muscle rigidity, impaired posture and balance, speech problems, loss of automatic movements, and in later stages, dementia (impairment of memory and mental clarity). Parkinson’s symptoms tend to worsen as the disease progresses. The reason for Parkinson’s disease is still a mystery, but genetics and

environmental factors such as exposure to viruses and toxins seem to both contribute. However, people suffering from Parkinson’s disease show changes to neurotransmitters in the brain, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, resulting in reduced stimulation of the motor cortex, the area of our brain responsible for our movement. Parkinson’s disease typically develops in middle or later life, and is more common in men. Treatment for Parkinson’s includes medications to manage the symptoms of the disease, physiotherapy to help

with movement, massage therapy to relax rigid muscles, and in some cases, surgery.

CHINESE MEDICINE CLASSIFIES PARKINSON’S DISEASE AS A TYPE OF CONVULSION OR TREMOR.

Lifestyle changes to diet and exercise may also be recommended. Yoga or tai chi can be particularly beneficial because they

can help with flexibility and balance. Chinese medicine classifies Parkinson’s disease as a type of convulsion or tremor. It is seen as a combination of constitutional (inherited) weakness combined with lifestyle factors such as overwork, diet, and emotional stress, which may be triggers to the development of the disease. Parkinson’s disease is broken down into three sub-categories according to the cause of the disease. The first is a deficiency of qi-energy and blood, See Kaufman A17

North Americans celebrate Labour Day on the first Monday of September. This is a public holiday that traditionally marks the return to school for all types of students after their summer vacations. While labour disputes between millionaire athletes and millionaire owners dominate the headlines these days, history offers a completely different perspective on an era where workers had to fight hard to limit their workdays to less than twelve hours a day!

In honour of the workers movement, Labour Day was introduced in Canada in 1872, a year when marches and gatherings were held in Ottawa and Toronto. In Europe, the festivities of May Day have been combined with Labour Day celebrations since 1889. This spring festival was celebrated for some time in Canada, but the desire for a long weekend at the end of the summer led Parliament to proclaim the fall Labour Day in 1894. The first Labour Day in the United States was celebrated on September 5, 1882, in New York. An initiative of the Central Labor Union, the idea was quickly adopted by other union organizations and, in 1885, was celebrated in many industrial centres. New York City granted the first official recognition of this day by municipal ordinances in 1885 and 1886, and they were integrated into the laws of New York State shortly thereafter. Today, Labour Day no longer has any particular political significance.

t’s not a remarkable picture frame. As far as picture frames go it’s probably just run of the mill average stuff. It’s rectangular in shape about two feet by three feet and tan in colour. The outer edges boast an attractive ornate shape. It could be old—perhaps even very old. It may be a valuable antique or simply a piece of crap. Regardless, it’s an old friend to me and will always have a place in my life. My bond with the frame is because at a great time of need it became my safe port in the storm—or a subtle wakeup call. Without that picture frame, I have no idea where I’d be today. It was five years ago when I first truly noticed the old picture frame and it was a complete fluke of circumstance. Some six weeks before my wife at the time had arrived home from a 10-day visit to Hawaii and abruptly announced she was leaving me. I was

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge truly surprised at the announcement, despite the fact we’d had a couple of rough bumps during our 17 years together. Suffice to say, I was perplexed by it all and when she announced she was moving to Hawaii in another month, I went into a tail spin. For the next six weeks, I basically let my world tumble down around me. I helped pack up her stuff and sent her off, then immediately hid in my backyard with as much beer as I could find. I rediscovered my skill at getting stupidly impaired and feel sorry for myself. I did a fine job of it and may have stayed there if not for the picture frame.

Near the end of the sixth week of self destruction and pity partying, I decided to sort out her remaining stuff from mine and put it in storage. About an hour into digging through the mounds of collected junk in the shed I came upon the picture frame. I decided it was disposable and tossed it onto the lawn in the “giveaway” pile. It sat there until the next day. With the blistering heat of mid August beating on me, I cracked open my fourth or fifth cold one of the day and sat down in a lawn chair to relax a bit. By fluke, or fate, the frame had landed in perfect position right next to the chair and when I sat with sad little head bowed I was staring into the frame. At first I assumed the two-handed chin holding pout position and I started to think how the patch of lawn I could see inside the empty frame seemed so lifeless. Nothing was happen-

ing—just like in my life. Out of boredom (and probably the booze) I continued to zone out while staring at the frame. Slowly, ever so slowly, I saw some grass and weed blades stir in the wind. Then I noticed an ant start to trundle across a curled up old leaf. Suddenly there were several ants making a leaf burdened trek across the expanse of grass in the frame. It was an epic journey for them, my three-foot picture frame. Soon a fly landed on the frame followed by a ladybug that magically appeared in a piece of grass that had suddenly lifted. When I looked around inside the frame there was life teeming everywhere; life I had not really noticed in my rush to see nothing. Half an hour later, I pulled myself away from the amazing display of life in microcosm and started to grin for the first time in six weeks. The lines from John

I realized life was not only worth living but was passing me by and I wasn’t making any plans, just wasting my world. The light bulb had come back on. The pity party was over. I picked up the picture frame and carefully put it back in my shed and put the rest of the beer in the fridge for a more sensible time. For some time now I’ve been contemplating just what sort of picture I should put in the old frame but never really found the perfect match. However, it’s just dawned on me this morning as I held it again that I’ll leave it as it is. Blank, empty, without a picture. It seems fitting that way.

deadly than AIDS

A

lthough it’s an important part of our social culture, alcohol is also a deadly force in this world. According to a report released by the World Health Organization earlier this year, alcohol is more deadly than AIDS, tuberculosis or violence. Actually, at 2.5 million alcohol related deaths each year, unsafe alcohol use is responsible for nearly four per cent of deaths worldwide. Alcohol is the world’s third largest risk factor for disease burden after childhood malnutrition and unsafe sex—but it is the leading risk factor in many higher income nations such as the Americas and the Western Pacific. In Europe, it is the second largest. In its Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health, the WHO suggests rising incomes have spurred more drinking in some of the heavily populated countries in Africa and Asia over recent years. Along with this, binge drinking is becoming more of a problem in many developed countries. In Russia, alcohol is responsible for one in every five deaths. At the same time, many countries have weak control policies surrounding alcohol and this is not a priority for governments in spite of the rising human cost of excessive alcohol consumption. Of course, here at home we are aware of some of the dangers of excessive alcohol use. Our government has put in place many of the recommended policies to reduce the impact of harmful alcohol use—including minimum legal age, legal limits on blood al-

Most of us have met someone affected by a drunk driving incident and we know about increased violence when alcohol is involved as well as chronic illness such as cirrohsis of the liver due to long-term alcohol abuse. Alcohol abuse also increases the likelihood of various cancers, cardiovascular disease, sexually transmitted infections and suicide. It weakens the immune system also lowers our inhibitions so that we engage in more risky behaviours. Young adults are particularly at risk when it comes to problem drinking. Around the world, 320,000 people between the age of 15 and 29 die from alcohol-related causes each year—representing nine per cent of deaths in that age group. Alcohol is the leading risk factor for death among young men aged 15 to 59. Unfortunately, alcohol abuse has the ability to reach far beyond simply the health and safety of the individual doing the drinking. Friends, family and bystanders can all be put at risk.

Importance of a comfortable mattress can’t be overstated

M

any of my patients ask me how important is a mattress and how do I select the proper one? Shakespeare said it best in Macbeth when he stated that sleep is the “balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course and chief nourisher of life’s feast.” I agree. Proper sleep is not only a convenience, but also a necessity for proper health. If you are not sleeping well, you just simply are not as healthy as you could be. It is during sleep, and only sleep, that the body allows itself to repair from the day’s activities. I take mattresses very seriously as there is no one single possession of yours that you will use more. We will sleep 3,000 hours a year and by the age of 50 will have spent over 150,000 hours in bed. The importance of proper sleep cannot be underestimated. In a recent study published in the Journal Sleep, the importance of REM sleep became all too important. The study subjects were allowed to sleep until they approached the REM phase, whereupon they were awoken and asked to do simple cognitive tests. They were allowed to fall asleep whenever they wanted, once they approached REM phase of sleep they were once again woken. The study only lasted three days. These individuals demonstrated a profound decline in their ability to concentrate, cognitive abilities and memory

If your mattress predates the Mulroney era and has become somewhat of a hammock when you and your partner are sleeping side by side, it may be time for this sag monster to go. Here are some indications that you may need a new mattress. If you wake up feeling stiff, or complain of aches, pains or numbness anywhere, you may need a new mattress. If you find that you have a better night’s sleep somewhere other than in your own bed, or your mattress is greater than eight years old, it may be time to go shopping. There are many different types of mattresses:, air beds, foam, synthetic and natural latex, waterbeds, adjustable beds and if your student; the trusty futon. The bottom line of mattresses is that you simply get what you pay for and if the mattress is comfortable to you then it is probably the mattress for you. It would be unrealistic to expect that you could go to Markus’s Mattress Emporium and outfit your family of four for $2,000. You should never feel

you have to negotiate with your mattress to be comfortable, it should be an immediate comfort. When shopping for a new mattress it’s important that you take your shoes off and lay on the mattress in various positions.

It is also important that your partner be with you to see if the mattress is a bit of a funnel when you’re both laying on it. Have the salesperson show you a cutaway sample of the mattress to determine the density of the coils and the distribution

of the foam. In addition, compare the stores for their services such as removal of your old mattress and return policy. Most reputable mattress stores will give you a certain grace period to determine whether the mat-

tress is for you or not. They should have a return or trade-in policy until you’re completely satisfied. Make sure you sample at least 10 different mattresses and above all, make sure your wife or husband is happy with it.

ENTERTAINMENT Making music to

making wine Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Normally, when a person becomes a parent, story time replaces those hours once spent enjoying a glass of vino on a patio with friends, at least for a few years. For 31-year-old Anthony Lewis, this transition to the sleepless nights of parenthood had just the opposite effect. “I had my daughter and I went for a short tour and decided I didn’t want to leave her anymore,” explained the former Storytime drummer who says fatherhood inspired an about-face from a rock-and-roll dream life to East Kelowna winemaking. Clearly one who walks to the beat of his own drum Lewis says he will never regret ditching music, and going on road trips to open for the likes of Blind Melon, for a quiet family life, though he’s the first to admit oenophilia was not exactly a natural fit. “My dad showed up to my house with a vineyard management magazine and a winemaker magazine and said how would you like to move to Canada and start a vineyard and winery with me? And I was like: ‘No, you know. I don’t drink wine.” It took Lewis and his wife three weeks to get their heads around the idea. One long, cold winter into their new venture, with 30 to 40 wine kits underway in their basement, the road to their new life didn’t get any less rocky once he made the leap to Canadian soil. Though his first big break came in solving the problem of soil. After spending six months battling the stones in East Kelowna’s famously gritty earth to get his first vineyard in, the musician invented and patented an above-ground trellis support that won him the attention he needed from the wine industry’s bigwigs. “We were just basically like wouldn’t it be great if there was like a Lego way of doing this. Something that just stands up on its own,” he said. The trellis support is the world’s first above-

ground, fully patented grape growing system and it works with a Geneva Double Curtain—among the best trellis systems in the business for those in the know. Using a little do-it-yourself marketing knowhow from his days in the music industry, Lewis started making funny videos of himself screwing up in his vineyard to showcase his solution and sending them off to winemakers and vineyard owners all over North America and Europe. “It kind of worked my way in the opposite way as I did with the music business,” he said. Sharing the glory in Storytime with his two brothers, Phil and Peter, Lewis had paid for his end of the rock lifestyle by working as an audio mastering engineer, helping bigger musicians

with their leg-work as a means of promoting his own band and name. And, odd though it may seem, Lewis believes those sound-mixing roots are exactly what prepared him for preparing great grapes. With the help of his new-found wine-making friends, he gleaned enough theory to put technology to work, just as he would have as an audio engineer. He uses iPhone apps like iWinemaker and Cellarhand to work out his crop yields and molecular sulphur dioxide levels to prevent the wine from going off as it ages. Just like making good music, making good wine is all about the art of stripping away unnecessary clutter, he says, and he’s learned to apply the same principles.

Believe is Just as Important as What They Know

“Once you take away the weaknesses, you expose something for what it really is. You get the real sound of the drum rather than the noise you’re making,” he explained. “All grapes are good. There’s just a bunch of crap in there with ‘em. If you remove all the bad stuff, you’ve got what the grape was in the first place.” So far those grapes, he added, are “not too shabby.” With six top-notch retail wines on the shelves in this, his second year as a winemaker, he uses his brother Phil’s psychedelic, three-dimensional cover art to market his winery, Vibrant Vines, as a fun, yet accessible window into the wine world. “We used to slap it on CDs, now we slap it on booze; I mean bottles of wine,” he jokes in a characteristically, if a little well-calculated downto-earth style. “It’s all the same. It just keeps going.” In the very best showman’s tradition, so too does the music. Lewis has found a way to bring the music back into his life by hosting live music on Saturday in the winery’s garden. Every Saturday afternoon, he pours wine from his outdoor taps as friends from the music business take to a tent-covered stage on the grass. “I want to build a community with this product,” he said. “We want to make this like a social meeting place.” Vibrant Vines is hosting a pyjama party Oct. 15 to raise money for children in a Haitian orphanage. Pyjama Jam will help Lewis’s father-in-law, an orthopaedic surgeon who founded www.lovetakesroot.org, provide 68 pairs of pyjamas for the kids in its orphanage. Simply bring a pair of pyjamas to donate, all sizes are welcome, and come watch the local music community jam at the winery from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.

NEWS ▼ ARMSTRONG

Interior Provincial Exhibition serves up bloomin’ good time Jessica Schwitek VERNON MORNINGSTAR

You could feel the excitement in Armstrong Tuesday as people gathered at the fair grounds to help put the final touches on the 112th IPE. “There’s a lot of work,” said Sheila Malashewsky, longtime volunteer with the IPE. “There’s so much to do beforehand.” It takes two days to get everything set up in the

arena, and Malashewsky guessed about 15 hours, which is on top of the time put in prior to setup. Malashewsky, along with dozens of other volunteers, guided exhibitors inside Hassen Arena, helping fill table after table with baked goods, artwork, crafts and displays. Many of the volunteers were already wearing their fascinators, a new theme at this year’s IPE, which starts today.

Forest fire ignites near Falkland Roger Knox VERNON MORNINGSTAR

Firefighters were rolling into an area west of Falkland Thursday to battle a forest fire. The first call on the blaze came in just before 3 p.m., and fire centre fire information officer Kayla Pepper said that by 3:30 p.m., the fire had grown to 15 hectares in size. “The fire is about eight kilometres west of Falkland, near the Falkland Dump,” said Pepper Thursday afternoon. Six initial attack firefighters were dispatched to the scene, and they were being joined by 12 sustained action crew firefighters. Heavy equipment such as bulldozers and water tankers were also en route, as were air tankers.

“There are some timber values in the area but our bird dog confirmed that no structures are threatened at this time,” said Pepper Thursday afternoon. A cause of the fire had not been determined as of The Morning Star’s press deadline. It was the second fire of the week in the Kamloops zone, following a big blaze Wednesday one kilometre east of the Kamloops city limits. “It’s been a later start for the fire season, but even though it’s cooler, it’s dry enough for wildfire starts,” cautioned Pepper. As of Thursday, the fire danger rating throughout the Kamloops region, which encompasses the North Okanagan, was high.

Battle brewing over brews Out of seven rural fire departments in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, at least one has already faced dissension over a no-alcohol policy. RDOS director Tom Chapman said five volunteer firefighters from the Naramata fire hall have taken temporary leave to show their distaste for a policy implemented a month ago that forbids alcohol consumption at the hall. “Which has, of course, somewhat blown up in our face because they are saying why are we being singled out,” said Chapman.

“There is a group of five individuals that have left based on that fact. They are all responsible individuals, they just don’t want to see Naramata singled out. They want a regionwide policy and I completely support them on that, as well as that they want to know they haven’t been singled out as having been a problem. They are a great group of people.” On Thursday, the RDOS board voted against adopting a policy prohibiting alcohol storage and consumption on RDOS property except under special permit. Penticton Western

“There was a fascinator meeting, but I couldn’t go, so they made this one for me,” said Malashewsky, holding a swaying Elvis figurine attached to a headpiece. “He fell off so we’re gluing him back on.” Malashewsky, a diehard Elvis fan, has entered her Elvis collection into the exhibition this year for the first time. “It’s the only one in the division,” she said with a smile. “So I’m pretty sure

I won.” Outside the arena West Coast Amusements was busy setting up games, rides and tents. A little mishap involving a truck colliding with a game tent kept several workers busy for a while, but it didn’t seem to put a damper on the mood at all. “I love the IPE,” said Wayne Armstrong with West Coast Amusements. Armstrong has been part of the crew at the IPE for

22 years now. “I come every year, this is one of my favourite fairs.” Come for a bloomin’ good time is the theme this year, and Malashewsky thinks it is one of the best they’ve had. “I love the theme. I’ve heard from a lot of people that they’re really excited about it,” she said. “And the fascinators are cool. I’ve gotten a lot of comments on my Elvis.”

Be sure to bring a fascinator from home to help the IPE record a Guiness World Record. There will also be a fascinator booth on site where people can make their own. Police presence, as always, will be increased due to the number of people coming to the area. “Our officers are all set to go. We will have extra officers on duty because of the influx of people coming to the IPE, people coming from all over for

the fair,” said VernonNorth Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We want everyone to have a real great time at the fair.” The IPE officially kicks off tonight at 4:30 p.m. when Lieutenant Governor of B.C. Steven L. Point opens the fair. Gates are open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., today until Sunday. Check out www.armstrongipe.com for more information.

SPORTS ▼ MOUNTAIN BIKING

Guthrie to challenge world’s best Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Evan Guthrie is hoping his best race as a professional mountain biker leads to even bigger things as he gets set to take on the best riders in the world. Guthrie is in Champery, Switzerland to take part in the 2011 World Mountain Bike Championships, competing for Team Canada in the Under-23 division in the cross country event. This weekend’s event will mark the close of an up and down season for Guthrie, who at 20, will be one of the event’s younger riders. “I’m just trying to go in with no pressure and hoping for a top 30 placing, and if it’s muddy maybe top 20,” said Guthrie. “You never know what can happen. It can be the day of your life or other stuff can happen. You just have to go in with an open mind.” A lot of stuff has happened to Guthrie in the past couple of years. After riding to the top of the sport as a junior, Guthrie lost most of a year of training and competing in 2010 after suffering a long bout of mononucleosis. This year he is back healthy but has had varying results. After finishing in the pack at World Cup races in Quebec and in New York, Guthrie was fourth in the Under-23 at the Canadian National Championships in Canmore. He then followed that up with what he called the biggest win of his career, placing first in the pro men’s division at the final Canada Cup race in Edmonton. “Everything fell together; it was one of

“I was pretty excited.” Following the Can-

ada Cup Guthrie returned to the Okanagan to begin preparations for the World Championships. The Switzerland event will close out his mountain bike season, one that Guthrie says was pretty good, after losing much of last season to illness. “I’m definitely satisfied,” he said. “At this point I’m not absolutely thrilled. It’s tough because you have big expectations. But getting over last year I’m excited to be back riding. I lost a years worth of training and fitness but I’m hoping to start a nice curve over the next couple years and keep climbing to the next level.”

Following the World Championships Guthrie will return home and jump to another riding sport as he takes up the sport of cyclo cross where he has also found success. Despite varying results Guthrie continues to enjoy his sport and is taking it all in as he continues to travel and ride and meet new people. “It’s been awesome,” he said. “There has been more travel than I ever thought I would do as a young person. You never want to take it for granted because you never know when it can end.” kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Christensen on offense Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

A familiar face is back on the sidelines with the Okanagan Sun. Former head coach and ex-player Jay Christensen has taken over as the B.C. Football Conference club’s offensive coordinator, replacing Tony Lindsay who was relieved of his duties earlier this week. Christensen, 47, starred for the Sun as a receiver in the early 1980s. He joined the coaching staff as the offensive coordinator in 1999, before moving into the head coach’s job in 2002. He spent seven seasons at the helm, before stepping down in 2008. Christensen admitted to being a little hesitant when he was first contacted about the job, but the more he thought about it, the more attractive the scenario became. “When it first happened, I didn’t think for a minute I would get the phone call,” said Christensen, who led the Sun to the Canadian junior final in 2004. “I’d stayed away from the game the last few years to look after family needs because those come first. “But when the calls came, the football juices started to flow again. There are some outstanding athletes on the offensive side of the ball with the Sun, and I’m excited to work with Jason (Casey), the coaching staff and the players. “I feel for Tony,” he added. “I was in the same boat at one time. Coaching changes are made and that’s the reality of the business.” Head coach Jason Casey opted to make the change following the

Jay Christensen club’s 33-20 loss last Saturday to the Vancouver Island Raiders. The Sun offense has sputtered at times this season, generating just a field goal in the second half in Nanaimo, and managing just 15 points in a narrow win over Langley in week 3. Casey is looking to Christensen’s football acumen and experience to inject new life into the offense. “Jay has tons of experience in the CFL and in junior, and there’s a certain camaraderie there, we worked quite well together before,” Casey said. “He knows the game inside out, he’s a guy who can step in mid-season, someone who can work with the existing players and system, help us move forward and make this season successful. I’m excited to have Jay on board.” The decision to release Lindsay was a difficult one for Casey but one he felt needed to be made in order for the Sun to maximize their potential on offense—and eventually get over the hump to a B.C. Football Conference championship. A more diversified and potent offense is at the top of Casey’s wish-list. “You have to be able to run the football to be a contender,” he said. “The Raiders ran and passed on

us, and we didn’t respond. “I’m looking for an offense that’s going to use our big O-line, use our running backs and our receivers, all to the best of their abilities. We haven’t seen yet what this offense is capable of.” Casey regrets having to part ways with Lindsay, but believes he has the team’s best interest at heart. Lindsay, a former Sun player, spent 12 1/2 seasons on the coaching staff. “It was gut-wrenching to contemplate a split, I’m friends with Tony,” said Casey. “It’s not going to please everyone, but you do what you think will benefit the football team. I joked that it would have been a lot easier if we didn’t get along, but we do, so it was tough.” For Christensen, the former head coach said he and Casey haven’t discussed any plans beyond the end of the 2011 season. Right now Christensen’s focus is becoming a quick study and getting the Sun offense firing as soon as possible. “I’m going to be a little blind coming in, I only know about four or five of those kids, so there is going to be a bit of a learning curve there,” he said. “But having said that I have a history with the staff here, I’m going to get help from them, and I’ve been around football for a long time, so hopefully I can step right in. “The excitement is back,” he added, “and this time I don’t have to worry about all the decisions a head coach has to make.” Christensen will take over the offense early next week at practise. The Sun returns to action Saturday, Sept. 11 at home to the Chilliwack Huskers.

Even draw in Ensign Cup’s 29-year history Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

After 29 years the Ensign Cup rugby match is all square between the under 30 and over 30 members of the Kelowna Crows. And it continues to honour injured Crows rplayer Rusty Ensign and raise money for the local frugby community. t

The under 30 crew won its third straight Ensign Cup last weekend, running over the over30s with a 31-5 win in the game played at City Park. The overall results now sit at 13 wins apiece and three draws over the 29year history of the game. But more than the final score, the friendly game continues to be a tribute to Ensign, who was injured

in a Crows game in 1983, losing the use of his legs when he broke his neck during a tackle. Three weeks later the first Ensign Cup was held and the tradition continues to this day, making it one of the longest annual events in Kelowna. “It’s nostalgic,” said Ensign. “It’s gone into another generation of guys. It’s gotten to the point

Exhibition for junior teams

Kelowna’s three junior hockey teams head into tthis weekend of exhibition games as they continue to build rosters in advance of the regular season for the Kelowna Rockets, the Westside Warriors and the Kelowna Chiefs. Here’s a look at what is happening.

THE ROCKETS

The Rockets host the Vancouver Giants tonight (Friday) and the Victoria Royals on Saturday to kick off a six game exhibition schedule. The Rockets closed its main training camp Thursday after three spirited days of games and practices and head into the weekend with around 30 players still on its roster. A mix of newcomers and veterans will be in the lineup for the Rockets this weekend. “We’ve had some pracftices where we’ve gone over a few things with our players so we’re going to ttry and pay attention to the players that are applying fwhat we have taught,” said Rockets coach Ryan Huska. “We’re also watching work ethic. We want to make sure guys are competing and working hard.” Seven veterans will be leaving the Rockets camp and heading to NHL training camps in the next week so Kelowna’s young players will have a chance tto prove themselves throughout the exhibition schedule. Defenceman Tyson Barrie is already in Colorado while Mitchell Callahan will head to Detroit with both veterans expected to stick in pro hockey. Other players also going to camp include Shane McColgan (New York Rangers), Brett Bulmer and Colton Jobke (Minnesota), Adam Brown (Edmonton), Zach Franko (Detroit) and Jessey Astles (Pittsburgh). The Rockets open the regular season Sept. 24 on the road in Everett and play its home opener Oct.

1 against Vancouver.

Westside opens the BCHL campaign Sept. 23 on the road and plays its home opener on Sept. 30.

THE WARRIORS

The Westside Warriors open their exhibition schedule this weekend with a home game against the Merritt Centennials on Saturday night at Royal LePage Place. The Warriors training camp is continuing today (Friday) with players on the ice all day long before the team breaks camp and heads into a six game exhibition schedule. Over 40 recruits including 11 returning players began the Warriors training camp.

where almost nobody my age is young enough to play. To me it’s an honour that they still carry the game on and value it. We raise money and it always goes to a good cause.” This year $975 was raised and it will go to the Kelowna Crows Under 19 and Under 17 rugby sides to help them offset travel costs. While Ensign has seen the generations change over the years there are still some players around from his era. At 50-years-old George Curran played in his 28th Ensign Cup and was a former teammate of Ensigns. Will Loud-

THE CHIEFS

The Kelowna Chiefs open their second season in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League with an exhibition game tonight (Friday) at Rutland Arena. The Chiefs closed its training camp with an intra-squad game on Wednesday and will host the North Okanagan Knights tonight before opening their regular season on Sept. 17.

oun, 49, was also a former competitor in Ensign’s day and used to play for Burnaby. Last weekend’s game also saw it return to City Park where fans were able to watch and enjoy it. Between 200 and 300 fans checked out the match over its duration. Next year the Ensign Cup may see some changes. After the Canadian championship rugby game in August drew 800 fans to the Apple Bowl, Ensign says he hopes the Canadian program will return to Kelowna next year. If it does he thinks the Ensign Cup would be a per-

For most kids that means the use of a backpack. Although backpacks can be great for hauling supplies they also can be a potential injury source for you kids if not fit and used properly.

picking a backpack for you child is to choose one that fits the size of the child rather than one that packs the most stuff. A full backpack should never weigh more than 15 per cent of the carrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weight. For example a child that weighs 100 pounds should not carry more than 15 pounds in their backpack. The bigger your backpack, the more likely you are to fill it up with more things, so by choosing a backpack in proportion to your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size you limit the ability to overload it. The shoulder straps should not dig into the front of the shoulders and the bottom of the pack should rest on the contour of the low back in a centered position. Backpacks should also be made of lightweight material such as canvas and have lots of storage compartments. The compartments help with the ability to balance contents evenly throughout the pack. Better packs also tend to have a padded back to

reduce pressure and add comfort and contoured shoulder and chest straps. Waist belts can distribute some of the load to the pelvis and keep the pack centered on the back. Lastly, packs with reflective material can help make your child more visible to drivers during the early morning and night. Once you and your child have chosen a backpack, proper use is important. The following tips should be followed to help prevent injury: 1. Keep the weight manageable. Remember not to exceed 15 per cent of their bodyweight. 2. Use both shoulder straps to help distribute the weight of the pack evenly and to promote a good posture. 3. Center the backpack between the shoulder blades and adjust straps so that the backpack fits the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body snugly. 4. Pack the heaviest objects into the backpack first so they are carried lower and closest to the body.

5. Pack sharp or bulky objects in the backpack so they do not contact the back. 6. Maintain good posture at all times. Your child should stand tall with his or her head and neck aligned with their shoulders. Remind them to keep their shoulders pulled gently back and down. An exercise to help remember this is to gently squeeze your shoulder blades together and then rotate your palms to face outward. Hold this position for 30 seconds and repeat fives times. You and your child can do this exercise daily to help build a good postural habit. If your child does report pain, take them seriously and make modifications as necessary or consult your health care professional for advice.

SPORTS ▼ MAJOR MIDGET

Players busy with training camps Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

With junior training camps underway across the Okanagan Valley, the Okanagan Rockets major midget team may be one of the only local hockey teams not doing much this time of the year. The Rockets are preparing to begin its B.C. Major Midget League (BCMML) pre-season Sept. 8. What’s not known is just who will be back in Okanagan Rockets colours this year as many players are taking part in major junior or junior A or B training camps. “It’s tough for us at this stage because you don’t know who you are going to see come back,” said Okanagan Rockets manager David Michaud. “You try to build a depth chart and you feel good about things but a lot of these guys could go off and impress at the next level and they won’t be back.” The major midget Rockets completed its training camp in early August, putting about 100 players through on ice and off ice workouts.

Following that camp the team kept close to 40 players on its roster and began the waiting game as players left for various junior hockey camps. Michaud says it was an excellent camp with a high talent level. “The players did an incredible job of making life tough on us as evaluators,” said Michaud. “The returning players that we had last year came ready to play and that was something that we challenged those guys with over the summer. Our message was clear: We were a team that missed the playoffs and no one’s job was safe.” Along with new head coach James Eccles, Michaud and the rest of the Okanagan Rockets are hoping last year’s failed season was an abberation as the club looks to return to the post season this year in the 11 team regional league. Without knowing exactly what the roster will look like, Michaud says the talent level they should have back will give the team a chance to compete with the top teams in the league.

▼ MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Toshido shows force in Vernon It was a perfect weekend for Team Toshido last weekend in Vernon as the first Battlefield Fight league made its debut in the Okanagan with BFL 10. Team Toshido MMA went 3-0 at the weekend event, featuring Team Toshido’s up-andcomers the first professional MMA event held in the Okanagan by the BFL, who have run shows throughout the lower mainland and Vancouver Island. Team Toshido member Cory Tosoff extended his professional MMA record to 2-0 after a hard fought split decision win over Nathan Swayze of Comox. It was a back and forth battle, but Tosoff’s constant forward pressure was enough to give him the decision nod from the

judges. Team Toshido Member Mike Hill extended his professional record to 3-0, winning his bout with Nolan Clark of Kamloops. After a feeling out period, Hill landed a devastating right hand that rocked Clark. After some jockeying for position on the ground, Hill released a barrage of ground and pound strikes forcing the referee to stop the fight at 4:51 of the first round by TKO. Team Toshido newcomer Matt Dwyer made a statement in his pro MMA debut. At just 41 seconds of the first round, Dwyer landed a flying knee which crumpled his opponent Levi Alford of Washington, USA, to the mat, scoring the fastest KO of the night.

“We feel really good about the team that came out this year,” he said. “The players that came out will give us a legitimate chance to compete. The next step for the Okanagan Rockets comes Sept. 8 to 10 when the BCMML exhibition season begins. The Rockets will host some exhibition games with the Okanagan Hockey Academy, the Kelowna Tier 1 Rockets as well as a midget team from Wenatchee. The BCMML season begins Sept 17 and 18 when the Rockets play a a home and home series with the Thompson Blazers out of Kamloops. kparnell @kelownacapnews.com

SPLENDID VIEWS of a 16th-century castle and the broad esplanade that hugs the shoreline of Rapallo, on the northwest coast of Italy, is afforded from a hotel balcony.

Rapallo: Italy’s Riviera provides is welcoming respite Peter Magnani CONTRIBUTOR

RAPALLO, Italy—Every spring, as the rainy season wanes, tourists pour in to the Italian Riviera, like a succession of rvogue waves breaking over a sea wall. They come for the magnificent landscapes, breathtaking vistas and impossibly blue Mediterranean. They come to see the postcard-pretty town of Portofino and the fabled Cinque Terre, where footpaths cling to the steep cliffs, seeming to be the only way in and out of the five achingly picturesque villages that perch on the hilltops and tumble like cubist landslides down to the sea. And the ones who have been to the Riviera before—especially the Italian tourists—come to Rapallo, a less glamorous, unpretentious seaside resort where it’s easy to relax and unwind, away from the bustle of the more popular places. Like many coastal towns scattered around the Mediterranean, Rapallo has been a tourist resort for centuries, although its glory days are over and its sheen has faded to a palette of soft pinks, oranges and yellows that dance gracefully along the Mediterranean.

The town hugs the Gulf of Tigullio in a casual sweep of low-rise hotels, some past their prime, with palm trees soaring over rooftops and calling to the umbrella pines that rise from thickly wooded hills behind the town. For a spectacular view, you can take a nine-minute funicular ride to the beautiful Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro, sitting almost 2,000 feet up in the hills. Or you can take a cue from American poet Ezra Pound, whose publisher sniffed, “EP disapproves of the funicular. He prefers to go there on foot.” Pound found Rapallo such an attractive respite from his tumultuous career that he moved to the area in 1924, eventually settling in the village of St. Ambrogio, where he lived with his mistress, Olga Rudge, and wrote most of his masterpiece, “The Cantos.” (Pound’s idyll ended when he was arrested for treason by U.S. troops after World War II and eventually committed to a Washington, D.C., psychiatric hospital for 12 years.) Then, as now, Rapallo’s “main street” is the broad esplanade between the hotels and shoreline. Where smart carriages once rolled alongside well-dressed couples out for a stroll, today’s visitors find themselves part of a more contem-

porary parade. Bambini scamper back and forth, challenging their frantic parents to keep up with them. Tourists poke their heads into restaurants that form the ground floor of every shore-front building, while fishermen try their luck casting from rocks below the walkway. Old women trudge past with laden market baskets, vying for space with lithe young Africans peddling fake Gucci handbags from mats laid out on the ground, ready to fold up the whole operation in a single move and scatter at the least hint of marauding police. My wife and I watched the scene unfold from the balcony of our room in the Hotel Italia e Lido, strategically placed at the far end of the esplanade. Our view took in the whole bay. On the far side, a bronze statue of Cristofero Colombo stood as tall as the surrounding palm trees and pointed west across the water. A long white pier jutted into the bay, from which ferries glided silently in and out, bound to and from Portofino, Cinque Terre and other must-see points on the Italian Riviera.

sturdy-looking castle built in the 16th century to guard the town from pirate attacks. At night, orange floodlights illuminated the castle against the black sky, trapping it, as if in amber, in a vague past that hints at romance, mystery and maybe a bit of danger. The ghost of Lord Byron might be sipping an absinthe on the next balcony, enshrining this very tableaux in a poem. Our first night in Rapallo, we stumbled onto a delightful pizzeria. We spent about an hour carefully sizing up restaurants along the esplanade. They all seemed similar, so we chose the one with the biggest crowd, and it proved to be a wise choice. Although well past 10 p.m., the place was hopping with patrons ranging from toddlers to great-grandparents. We marveled to hear nothing but Italian being spoken in what was clearly a tourist destination. We were escorted to a back bar area and given glasses of wine to tide us over while we waited for a table. The floor show was lively as waiters balanced huge trays of food and danced around children who were clearly vying for conSee Rapallo A29

Just as we drained our glasses, a table opened up by the huge picture windows, and we were treated to a simple and delicious meal of pizza and grilled vegetables, capped by affogato. Usually, this ice cream is laced with a shot of espresso, but here they used whiskey to create a sublime treat. On our last night in Rapallo, we were tempted to repeat that auspicious opening dinner. But we had developed a fondness for our hotel and decided to try its more formal, though still reasonably priced, menu instead. We were one of three couples sharing the spacious dining room that night. One long wall displayed photographs depicting famous people who had dined there during the hotel’s long-gone heyday. Most were movie stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age. But there was also a picture of EP himself, in all his bearded glory, enjoying a bowl of pasta. Between courses, the proprietress of the restaurant came over to greet us. The daughter of the hotel’s builder, she had lived

f

in New York for several years and spoke perfect, unaccented English. “I see Ezra Pound ate here,” I said, gesturing toward the wall. “My dear,” she said. “Ezra Pound lived here.” Always the English major, I felt compelled to correct her misconception. “Well actually,” I said, trying not to sound too pedantic, “Pound lived up the hill in St. Ambrogio.” I gestured vaguely behind me, toward the church steeple above the hotel that someone had told us was where St. Ambrogio was. “Ah,” she sighed. “His lover’s house was in St. Ambrogio, but his wife lived in the hotel, and when he stayed with her, this is where he lived. He and my father were very good friends.” And then the clincher: “And this is where he got his mail.” A minor gloss, but a very big deal for a writer who carried on such a vast correspondence as Pound. Is it possible, I wondered, that three generations of Pound enthusiasts have been making a partial pilgrimage at best? I had a fleeting image of a perplexed and harassed hotel clerk coping

with the mountain of letters addressed to Pound, then my mind cut to a picture of the poet himself sitting on one of those little balconies upstairs, sipping an aperitif, maybe reading a book or answering a letter, his wife inside typing a Canto as he silently congratulates himself on finding such an agreeable town to end up in. He gazes over at the old castle thinking it might be a good idea if they were to light it up at night. Then he gets up and leans against the balcony rail glancing backward toward the church steeple high on the hill where Olga Rudge waits. Hills and harbor. Cinque Terre and Portofino.

A

fter selling my nursery seven years ago, I made a wise choice to buy a house in old Glenmore. While in high school, I remember the first houses being built there on the Marshall family’s cherry orchard. Today the area has many beautiful mature trees making it a special place to walk. In September the streets will again be filled with children, parents and even grandparents, walking and cycling to the neighbourhood school. This creates a lovely community atmosphere. I quickly discovered a great way to meet my neighbours and create more community when I removed all the lawn from my front yard to make a series of test gardens. Because I spend a lot of time in my front yard, I began to meet the chil-

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele dren. They stopped to ask me about the plants and what I was doing. One boy asked for seeds of something he really liked to take to his teacher to plant in a garden at school. A young girl was very concerned someone might steal squash from the plants I was using to suppress weeds. In October, I was delighted to show her my big harvest of winter squash. Parents and other neighbours began stopping to chat as I worked in my gardens. It’s like the

old front porch visiting and I love it. This opportunity would not have happened if I had kept the traditional front yard of lawn and just spent one hour a week in it behind a noisy anti-social lawn mower. Many gardening tips have been swapped in my front garden. One neighbour suggested tanglefoot to keep ants from putting aphids in my apricot tree. From a very deep hole in her garden, another neighbour showed me how incredibly invasive trumpet vine can be. Gardeners across the street from me have copied my raised vegetable boxes and added oak barrels of squash that are spreading over some of the remaining lawn. This may be enough to kill it off and make way for more vegetables next year. Seeing what I have

done, many have begun removing parts of their front lawn to put in various combinations of shrubs, ground covers, perennials, ornamental grasses and vegetables. More people are growing food and excess produce is being shared along with growing tips. Deliveries of mulch and topsoil are being shared. Tools, plants and seeds are being shared. Neighbours are caring for each other’s gardens when someone is away. Walking in the neighbourhood is even more enjoyable with all the new gardens to look at and gardeners out front to chat with. All of this is wonderful evidence of building community one front yard at a time. If you are interested in taking out some of your lawn, you might find my two night ‘Introduction to Xeriscape’ garden-

Chrysler 200 convertible: four-season fun in the sun Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

Fun in the sun doesn’t meaning packing up and heading south to the Caribbean. It’s as simple as dropping the top on the 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible and going for a day trip. There are a few true four-seat convertibles out there but they tend to be in the premium luxury class. With ample room for four adults, a power top and a starting price under thirty grand ($29,995) the 200 is virtually in a class by itself. The 200 is the successor to the long-serving Sebring that was rethought inside and out in Chrysler’s post fiscal

meltdown era. As with most of its 2011 lineup, Chrysler has kept it simple with its drivetrains. All 200s are frontdrive and there are two engines and two transmissions. The base LX comes with a 2.4-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder engine producing 173 hp and 166 lb/ft of torque mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with a sixspeed automatic optional. The mid-range Touring and the topline Limited are equipped with Chrysler’s new 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 with 283 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque with the six-speed auto-

CONTRIBUTED

THE 2011 CHRYSLER 200 convertible (Limited shown) is billed as the most affordable four-seat drop-top on the market with up to 42 mpg with its new six-speed automatic transmission.

The interior of the 200 gets a version of the new family styling language you will find on most 2011 Chrysler and Dodge vehicles with soft touch trim and a dash that blends in with the shape of the windshield instead of jutting out and in your face.

While it may look similar, the 200 has all new exterior panels. The

most noticeable feature is the new ‘liquid metal’ grille but there are also projector headlights and fog lights and LEDs are used liberally. Underneath almost every part of the suspension was changed and upgraded for better handling response. For instance, 22 of 28 bushings were redesigned along with a complete re-engineering of the suspension geometry. Speaking of geometry, I was surprised to learn the geometry of the springs in the seats, no less, was re-

Chrysler 200 is a true four-seat convertible Chrysler from B3 instance, integrates the controls for radio, cruise, handsfree telephone and other functions so the hands never need to leave the wheel. There is an available infotainment system with 6.5-inch touch screen, voice command, Sirius satellite radio and a 30 Gb hard drive for music inputs. In terms of safety, there are front and side airbags, ABS with Brake Override and (except for the LX where it is an option) electronic stability control. This is a true four-seat convertible, not a twoseater with dinky seats in the back that are not much more than a package shelf. According to Chrysler the 200 Convertible has four inches more rear legroom and double the trunk cargo space of its competitors. But, if the front seats are all the way back, there is really no legroom to speak of. There is a choice between two automatically latching tops. The first is a cloth soft top, or on the Limited, a body-color folding metal hardtop as a $2,500 option. Both operate with a push of a button on the key fob or a switch

in the cabin. The 200 has a oneinch wider track and the tires are 10 mm wider. Couple that with it being 12 mm lower at the front and six mm lower at the back and you have a more aggressive look than the former Sebring Convertible. Some of my colleagues have panned the 200. I am not an apologist in any way for Chrysler but I honestly don’t why they are complaining. I really can’t tell you if the new and lowered suspension made for a better handling car than the Sebring because this car isn’t meant for slalom courses but rather long and lovely drives in the sun, which is exactly what my wife and I did. We took a couple of days and drove more than 500 km around the southern part of the province. With the metal hardtop, exterior noise was present but not intrusive. My test Limited had big 18-inch wheels that, along with the revised suspension made for a very relaxing ride. I liked the fat steering wheel with audio and cruise controls both of which were simple to operate. This is a big car and, with the added weight of the convertible top servos and hydraulics, I don’t

THE BACK SEAT LEGROOM of the 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible has been enlarged by four inches but is still at a premium with the front seat fully back. know if I’d want the fourcylinder. The 3.6-litre on the other hand is more than up to the task. I spent most of the drive on cruise and saw my fuel consumption average 8.2L/0100 km. The only grumble I can think of is trunk space which is halved when the top is stowed. You can, however, un-

fasten the divider between the top stowage area and the trunk beneath. The divider folds forward and snaps flush completely out of the way. With the top up cargo volume goes from a useable 13.1 cu ft to a meager 6.6 cu ft with the top fully retracted. We only had three bags so it wasn’t a problem. And because 95 per

cent of driving is not long distance, I don’t think it’s an issue. Chrysler bills the 200 as the most affordable allseason convertible car on the market. And at a starting price of $29,995, it is. However that gets you the fourcylinder with a four-speed auto without the optional electronic stability control or six-speed auto. It does come with air conditioning, power locks/ windows/heated outside mirrors and tire pressure monitoring. For the money, the best bet is probably the Touring but with a starting price of $36,495, it is a big jump from the base model.

But when you factor in the new V6, six-speed auto, heated seats, remote start, stability control, climate control and the soft top that also has a powered hard metal tonneau cover it’s actually reasonable. Just $2,000 away at $38,495 is the Limited and it’s loaded with leather seating and the new Media Centre 430 with 6.5-inch touch screen and a lot of little goodies like universal garage door opener, auto dimming rearview mirror and Chrysler new Uconnect system with integrated Bluetooth. With options such as the metal roof and the $950 Boston Acoustics speaker system the as-

tested price was $43,685 including a $1,400 shipping fee. About the only thing that comes close in cost to the Limited with metal roof at $38,495 is the Mazda MX-5 Miata GT at $39,995 but the latter is strictly a two-seater and about half the size of the 200. As far as I am concerned, the 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible is a marvelous way to get around town or for just a leisurely drive with your family and friends.

Back to School Driving Safety Tips By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC

during this busy time of the year.

It’s that time of the year again when children are gearing up and heading back to school. It’s also a great time for road users alike to brush up on their safety tips. Drivers need to be proactive and make sure they are familiar with their road sense and basic rules of the road. DriveWise has prepared a list of tips to keep children safe

• School Zones – Make sure you are aware of the school zones in your area and be sure to abide by them at all times. If there is a 30 km/hour sign attached, you must go 30 km/hour from 8 a.m. – 5 pm during school days. If there isn’t a speed limit assigned, you must slow your speed when children are present • Watch for school buses – If the bus has alternating flashing red

lights at the top, you must stop whether you are approaching it from the front or rear. • Practice your ground viewing techniques – This is a life-saving skill for all drivers to know. When approaching parked vehicles, scan under the cars watching for feet of children, animals or bicycles etc. • Pay attention at ALL times! Distracted driving is a hot topic right now and contributes to many crashes. Driving when distracted

around a school zone or area with many children can be deadly. Don’t drive while distracted, especially near school zones. • Keep your speed down in general – September is a busy month, kids are walking to and from school, are excited about the new school year and possibly not paying as much attention as they should be. It’s up to us to be watching out for them… expect the unexpected! • Road Test Packages • Get 6 Months Off your ‘N’ • Get School Graduation Credits

SKY SIGAL (RJ SKY SIGAL) NEE RHODA SKY June 29, 1932 - August 30, 2011 On August 30, 2011, Sky Sigal passed away peacefully in Kelowna Hospice at the age of 79 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Sky was predeceased by her parents Frances and Norman Sky of Toronto, Ontario and her former husband, Saul Sigal of Oyama, BC. Sky is survived by her sister Shirlee (Doug) Hoffman of Chicago, Illinois, her brother Milton Sky of Phoenix, Arizona, sisters–in-law Miriam (Percy) Urback, Sylvia (late David) Miller, Anita Sky, and many nieces and nephews residing across Canada and in the US. Sky will be deeply missed by her sons and daughters-in-law, Mark (Assunta) Rosal, Les (Jackie Lowrie) Sigal, Dan (Felena) Sigal, and by her grandchildren Justin, Sam, Joel, Giovanna, Jacob, Shameera and Saul. Born and raised in Toronto, Sky graduated from Forest Hill Collegiate Institute in 1951, and married Saul Sigal in 1953. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a General BA in 1955, and then went on to the Ontario College of Education and completed a Teaching degree. In the early 80’s she completed a Masters of Education at Ontario Institute in Studies and Education. She taught at Forest Hill Junior High, York University and the Institute of Child Studies. Sky connected with nature through her involvements in many organizations including The Bruce Trail Conservancy, Outward Bound, BC Wildlife Federation, Young Naturalist’s of BC, the Lake Country – Walk Around Lake Country initiative, Lake Country Environment Society, as well as, enjoying biking, hiking/walking, birding, canoeing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Sky was a gifted photographer with a unique vision. Through her photographs she exquisitely captured nature’s beauty, as well as, documented the lives of her family and friends. Sky’s photo cards were cherished by all who had the privilege of receiving them. During her life Sky travelled to Japan, India, Nepal, China, Singapore, Israel, and Russia and throughout Canada and the USA. In 1992 Sky moved to Okanagan Centre (Lake Country) to be near her family and enjoy her grandchildren. Sky embraced her new life and community in the Okanagan Valley becoming involved with Book Clubs, Synergy, working with the staff at Holiday Park Resort, championing the cause of Non-Violent Communication, Restorative Justice, and various other organizations. Sky particularly enjoyed attending live performances at Kelowna Actors Studio and at Creekside Theatre in Lake Country. Sky was a gentle soul, who was accepting of everyone she encountered. She loved unconditionally, and was a powerful source of encouragement to all her friends and family. Sky touched the lives of all she met. She was a devoted grandmother, who cherished the time spent with her seven grandchildren. Sky was a lifelong learner. Her range of interests was vast and her knowledge encyclopedic. From spirituality, to health, personal growth, and the environment, Sky was a student of and fascinated by it all. In the last days of her life, Sky shared some of her thoughts. She said, “She found it easy to accept the finality of death as the natural outcome of living. She wanted those who she had encountered in life’s journey to remember her as they experienced her and she never intentionally pursued impacting others’ lives. She just lived life in her own way.” The family wishes to thank Dr. Martin for attending Sky/Mom/Baba at the Central Okanagan Hospice House. As well, the family wishes to thank the nurses, care aides, and volunteers for their care, love and attention during mom’s time of need. A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, September 4th from 2 pm to 6 pm at Dan and Felena Sigal’s home, 11205 Maddock Avenue, Okanagan Centre (Lake Country). In lieu of flowers donation can be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

CARL HARBERGER and his American Eskimo dog, Bently, appear by the solar heated pool and solar panels on the roof of the home in Chatworth, California. The 6,000-square foot home is believed to be the country’s largest residential installation of thin-film solar panels.

W ENERGY

Solar powered house uses special thin panel in place of bulkier ones Solar from B19 quented by trotting horses. He has been living in it for two years with his wife, two children and three dogs while planning the solar installation, which cost $160,000 before a DWP rebate of about $50,000. A federal tax credit will be about $30,000.

The panels are made by Uni-Solar, based in Auburn Hills, Mich., and were installed by ADR Solar Solutions, a Woodland Hills, Calif., firm that specializes in thin-film solar. Like most homeowners who go solar, Harberger considered the bulkier panels that are commonplace across the country.

But the metal-sheet construction and curvature of his roof led him to Uni-Solar thin film. Mounted on the southern- and western-facing sections of the roof, the thin film can better handle seasonal differences in the sun’s patterns and maximize electricity generation. The uppermost portion of the panels will perform

better in the summer; the lowermost panels will do better in the winter. “Right now, our electricity use is balanced,” Harberger said, adding that his family will use as much electricity as it generates, on one condition. “If I can control my kids,” he said. “I tell them to watch the smallest TV possible.”

A purchase plus mortgage can help with immediate upgrades

W

hen looking for a home, do you think “what a beautiful home with a great yard, too bad the kitchen is outdated?” With the purchase plus improvements program, you are in luck. This program can open the door for you to get into the home and update it with your dream kitchen or spa like ensuite. It also saves you any inconvenience or hassle of arranging a second loan after closing.

Now you can purchase a home, renovate it the way you like and pay for it all in one mortgage payment at first mortgage rates.The purchase plus improvements mortgage is possible with Genworth (GE) or CMHC insurance. This mortgage can be done by putting as little as five per cent of the improved value down. For example, if you purchased a home for $300,000 and wanted to do $50,000 worth of renovations, GE or CMHC

will insure a mortgage based on 95 per cent of the improved value. In other words, with a down payment of $17,500 (five percent) GE or CMHC will insure a mortgage of $332,500. The key for this working is that the cost of the renovations has to be reflected in the improved value of the house. In this example, GE or CMHC would have to agree that the house would have a value of at least $350,000 after the $50,000 worth of pro-

posed renovations was done. The insured loan will be based on the lower of the purchase price plus the actual cost of improvements or the “as improved” market value. The following information needs to be prepared by the contractor to be submitted along with your application to the lender. Renovations: • Description of the work • Types of materials being installed with applicable quantities

• Total cost of all work including applicable taxes Additions: • Description of work • Copy of drawings • Cost breakdown of all proposed work such as: • Excavation and foundations • Exterior finish • Framing • Interior wall and ceiling finish • Windows and exterior doors • Finish carpentry such as trim, doors, and kitchen cabinets • Electrical

• Interior painting • Plumbing • Finish flooring • Heating • Site work and landscaping Important Remin ders: • Make the offer conditional for a longer than normal conditional period—10 business days. • Get estimates immediately after accepted offer. • Full application cannot be submitted until estimates are in. • All work has to be completed and receipts sub-

mitted together to release funds. • A walk-through appraisal maybe required at the borrower’s expense.

SUNLIGHT flows into the living room of Carl Harberger and his family home in

Chatsworth, California. The 6,000-square foot house is believed to be U.S.’s largest residential installation of thin-film solar panels. The 26-kilowatt system generates electricity for the air conditioning, heating and water heating, including the pool.

—an advantage in earthquake country _ and unlike bulky bracketed panels, thin-film doesn’t need to be drilled into the roof, reducing the risk of leaks. Harberger’s installation will power not only his lighting, electronics and air conditioning, but also systems that would traditionally be juiced

with natural gas. The thin film will heat all the water for the home and run the forcedair heating system as well as the clothes dryer and oven. “There are so many advantages to going all electric with very little natural gas,” Harberger said. Outside, natural gas powers a barbecue grill and an auxiliary heater for a shallow pool that is otherwise warmed by the sun or an electric heater. Inside, natural gas is used only for the kitchen cook top and a living room fireplace. Less natural gas indoors means fewer vents to shuttle carbon monoxide outside, resulting in a less cluttered exterior. Harberger, 49, designed the house, which sits on a quiet street fre-

Los Angeles—Carl Harberger’s 6,000-squarefoot house in the Chatsworth neighborhood of Los Angeles is equipped with six refrigerators, five TVs, a smattering of computers and a pool, among other things—enough to draw the wagging finger of the eco-minded if it were not for what Harberger has on his roof. By the end of the month, the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power is expected to flip the switch on the home’s 24-kilowatt installation of thin-film solar panels, bringing to life what is believed to be the largest residential installation of its kind in the country. The thin-film panels generate about 50 percent less electricity per square foot and cost about 10 percent more than tradition-

al photovoltaic panels, but the flexible film can handle curved surfaces and integrate less obtrusively into a home’s silhouette. It’s also lighter weight

THIS SHOW HOME in Kettle Valley in Kelowna features a very European inner courtyard, which is accessed off the large living room that is open the house’s second floor.

Courtyard living in Kelowna Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

Dreamy, artistic landscapes of the Italian countryside almost always feature a home with a courtyard. And now that that aesthetic vision has been built in Kelowna. Pars Construction has a new show home at 433 Audubon Court in Kettle Valley that evokes the romantic architecture of Tuscany. From the front of the home, the architectural influences are easy to see. North American necessities such as the two car garage are sheathed

in stonework around detailed garage doors and punctuated with wrought iron lantern style lighting. The barrel vaulted porch covering leads to an old world style, eight foot solid wood entry door. The first elements of the home to fall into your line of vision as you step through the front entry are the banks of window illuminated by the courtyard in the centre of the home. The courtyard is the breathing hub of this house. Open to the sky two stories above, the roof is crossed by a series of timber beams.

A self-contained water fall completes the space. The courtyard floor is fully heated with a complete drainage system. In the winter snow will melt effortlessly away for full usability year round. To balance the drama of the courtyard the main floor of the home features cabinetry with clean lines, extensive stone work, and deep crown molding. The interior textures start with seven-inch hickory hardwood floors and warm paint effects on feature walls. The glass set French doors that open onto the courtyard are completed

with traditional glass transoms. The kitchen is lovely. With an oversized centre island in front of a professional 36-inch Kitchen Aid ranges set into a rock wall. There is a window seat bench down the one side of the space. The very large walk in pantry is able to stock almost any supplies imaginable. The coffered ceiling adds further definition to the large space. The living room while grand is kept cozy by the scale of the fireplace surround and mantle. To access the upstairs, the articulated stairwell

opens onto a second floor gallery that is open to the living room below on one side with windows to the courtyard on the other. The traditional style influences of the home are balanced with a consistent visual return to wide open space. The top floor has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Each bedroom is completed with a walk in closet full of built in custom cabinetry. Both the master suite and the second main suite have full ensuite baths. In the master bath, the freestanding tub is set on a heated oversized tile floor. The

glass shower is completed with a pebble rock work floor. The top floor also has access to private ‘bell tower’ a covered deck above the entry way. This retreat like space has walls fully clad in rock work and looks out over Kettle Valley to the lake in the distance. The home has plenty of place to play. The fully finished basement includes a full wet bar, space for a billiard room, family room, a fifth bedroom for guests with a bathroom and a surround sound system. There is room for and eventual pool in the back

yard. The owner will never have to worry about privacy as the lot butts up against designated green space. The mechanical systems of the home include a high-efficiency heating system zoned for each floor. For the home owner looking to live in old world stylings modern convenience this home is like nothing else on the market. Show home hours are Saturday and Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 433 Audobon Court. For a private viewing contact Naze Khajavi at 250 860-6770.
