Teaching students better eating habits Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A new study from the Centre of Policy Alternatives released Tuesday, suggests schools have huge power to revolutionize B.C.’s food system to meet the demands of climate change. The study, entitled Every Bite Counts: Climate Justice and B.C.’s Food System, is part of the think tank’s Climate Justice Project, which looks at how to fairly build a carbon neutral society in order to curb the effects of climate change. “We want B.C. to become more self-reliant in terms of its food,” said study co-author Marc Lee, noting the province currently imports roughly half of its non-processed food. Some 60 per cent of that import-base comes from California where drought has ravaged food production. “The ability of California to act as the breadbasket for North America is doubtful given the effects of climate change,” Lee said, noting change is likely coming with or See Eating A11

New life for city’s historic packinghouse Blasting rules getting stricter Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

The historic Laurel Packinghouse, which is home to the Kelowna Museums’ orchard industry and wine museums, re-opens in its renovated building with a celebration Friday night and family activities Saturday. Friday is a fundraiser called If these Walls Could Talk…What a Story They Would Tell. Those attending will be among the first to see the inside of the building following 18 months of extensive renovations. Funds raised will go towards exhibits for the interior as well as educational programs at the facility. “We are excited to be opening the doors for the public to enjoy the Laurel Packinghouse—the building will be a fabulous space for the community to host events and visit the museums,” said Wayne Wilson, executive director for the Kelowna Museums. “For the Kelowna Museums Society, this is such a proud moment and we are grateful for the opportunity to share stories with students, locals and tourists recognizing the importance of agriculture in the Central Okanagan.” Everyone will be invited to bring their stories and their memories related to that building to share with the public.



CHRISTIAN BAUR (right) and Mitch Stewart, cabinet makers at Hartland Mill Works of Rutland, bring in a barrel that will be one of three bases for a table made of recycled wood from the Laurel Packinghouse. The table will be auctioned off at the Laurel Packinghouse re-opening fundraiser planned for Friday evening. The historic facility will be open for the public to check out beginning on Saturday. It’s an evening of tapasstyle food provided by Bohemian Catering, Delta Grand, CupCasions, de Montreuil Catering, Details Catering, dp events, Mission Hill Family Estate, Rose Catering and Blossums Fruit Arrangements, with wine from Mission Hill, Gray Monk Estate Winery, CedarCreek Estate Winery, Su-

mac Ridge Estate Winery and Calona Vineyards. A live and silent auction will take place while the Trevor Salloum Band provides entertainment. It’s from 6 to 9 p.m. and tickets are $60 each, available at the museum, 250-763-2417, or from Gayle Voyer, 250-7699248. On Saturday, from 10

a.m. to 2 p.m., there’ll be a family day celebration with activities for youngsters, a live bee hive, entertainment by Wentworth Music Education Centre, square dancing, wine tasting and a silent auction. As well, for youngsters there’ll be a cake walk, fish pond, bean bag toss and other activities. Admission is by dona-

tion so anyone can have a look at the newly-renovated historic building. Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd and Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan will officially reopen the building at 1 p.m. on Friday. The building is one of the city’s oldest agricultural heritage buildings.


RCMP to drivers: Pay attention to school buses When you are driving and you come upon a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing, do you stop or just drive by? If you drive by, you are putting students’ lives at risk, say police. “Police are receiving one to two complaints of

school bus passing incidents each school day, and it’s a wonder no one has been hurt—yet,” said Const. Steve Holmes. According to the Motor Vehicle Act, it is an offence to fail to stop for a school bus. “When a school bus is

stopped and its red lights are flashing and the stop sign is extended, you must stop whether you are driving behind the bus or approaching it from the opposite direction,” said Holmes. Failure to do so could result in a $167 fine and

three points against your driver’s licence. “Even more significantly, it may result in the injury or death of a child who is crossing the roadway when traffic is supposed to be stopped,” he said. Police are following

up any report of this kind of offence, and 73 violators were ticketed last year. So far this year, there have been 21 complaints and nearly the same number of tickets have been served to offending motorists.

The District of West Kelowna has tightened regulations around blasting following concerns by residents about potential property damage from nearby explosions. Council amended bylaws at the Oct. 26 meeting to require that blasters obtain a permit from the district before starting work. Director of engineer Gary O’Rourke noted residents are concerned that damage from blasting in the area could impact their homes and properties. He said the issue of blasting is already regulated by four or five separate legislative bodies, including the Criminal Code of Canada. O’Rourke added that district staff are by no means experts in the field of blasting. Legal advice given to the municipality noted West Kelowna’s authority deals in the areas of nuisance, disturbances and dust from various activities, including blasting. He pointed out the district wants to be aware that blasting activity is happening, and that affected residents also know that it will be going on. The district blasting permit requires that contractors hold a West Kelowna business license, and submit a site plan that outlines areas that could be impacted up to 300 metres from the blast site. Permit holders would also be required to have liability insurance, to make sure an independent company is monitoring over-pressure and vibration during blasts, to have a communication plan to notify residents up to 300 metres from the blast, and to notify the district of any road closures or detours resulting from blasting work. O’Rourke noted the proposal had been examined by both developers and the Smith Creek Residents Association, which has made the district aware on several occasions of its concerns about nearby blasting activity. “Additional regulation is never favoured by the development industry, but what we’ve tried to do is minimize that added regulation, while at the same time cover off the issues.” He added that asking developers to get a blasting permit from the district confirms developers are operating in line with existing legislation. “We’re not just monitoring dust and noise, we’re making sure the contractor is appropriately permitted, doing assessment and monitoring blasting in accordance with industry standards.” O’Rourke pointed out the explosions are designed by qualified engineers and blasting experts. Coun. Carol Zanon noted that the law limits the district in what they can do in the situation, and the local government would be limited to moves like regulating the length of the blasting permit, currently good for 30 days. “We cannot assume liability, that’s not our job.” She pointed out that damage residents believe is caused by blasting should be taken up with the insurer. “I think the main thing is to make sure the other agencies are doing the job they’re supposed to do to protect people,” Zanon said. She noted blasting in the Smith Creek area on Oct. 25 was taking place about 30 metres from houses, and had gone on for several weeks in preparing a new subdivision housing development site.

Friesen to anchor news broadcast from Kelowna Barry Gerding EDITOR

Donna Friesen decided she had finally had enough of the journalism adrenaline rush. After 11 years chasing down stories as a foreign correspondent for NBC, Friesen decided it was time for a change, namely to become the anchor of the Global TV national news broadcast. “After years of rushing off to the airport and never knowing when you would be coming back home, yes there is a lot of excitement and adrenaline in that line of work, but after a while it starts to wear a bit thin” Friesen said in an interview with the Capital News this week. “You find it hard to keep a plant alive, to maintain friendships, and people stop calling to invite you over for dinner because you are never home.” Among the stories she covered in those years was the war in Iraq; the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in Karachi, Pakinstan; the 2010 Winter Olympics; inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama; and interviewing Elvis Presley’s distanct relatives in Scotland. But Friesen said she reached a point in that phase of her journalism career where she was either going to stick with that lifestyle or go in a different direction. “A lot of my colleagues at NBC are lifers in that way, by I opted instead to find a little better balance in my life between work and home,” she said.

Donna Friesen Friesen has been touring the country with the Global national broadcast since being appointed to her new post in September, replacing Kevin Newman. She will be in Kelowna tonight, broadcasting outside, from the Waterfront Park boardwalk. “We’ve done a local story in every market we’ve broadcast from during this tour, so with Kelowna we’ll be looking at the balance between orchardists and grape growers, how they both compete for water supply and money, and how some fruit orchardists are pulling down their trees and planting grapes instead.” Friesen said that once this cross-Canada promotional tour concludes, the national broadcast will be based out of Vancouver because that is where the network’s editorial staff are situated. “With technology the way it is today, you can pretty much broadcast from anywhere, but (Vancouver) is where our resources are concentrated,” she said. Friesen said a national broadcast news anchor position may not have the viewer esteem of previous generations, as the constant 24-hour cable news

cycle has fragmented the viewing audience. “But that said, we still get more than one million viewers every night and so do the other guys. News broadcasts like ours still pull in a substantial audience,” Friesen said. “The news anchor may be considered a dinosaur to some, but if the road is changing, hopefully I can leave behind some good potholes.” Friesen noted sitting behind the nightly news desk has also changed for the better in that the few people in her position today also tend to serve as executive editors for the broadcast, having a say in what content is presented. “I think from a journalism integrity standpoint, that’s a good thing” she said. Friesen said her challenge as a so-called mainstream media news broadcaster is to tell stories that resonate with people on a human level. “I think if stories are compelling, people will take note and recognize that, regardless of the medium it’s presented in,” she said. As for the website news phenomena spawned by the popularity of the Internet, Friesen said she still doesn’t treat news reported online as fact. “You would hope that these websites would apply the same journalistic standards as networks like ours, but that’s often not the case. I mean, you would hope before posting a story saying Gordon Lightfoot is dead, you would actually check first to see if that’s the case.”

Christian Valley hiker found Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Police say miscommunication between a husband and wife led to a search being launched for a hunter who was reported missing Monday morning. Catalin Mihalache’s wife reported the 39-year-old Port Coquitlam man missing in the early morning hours of Monday after he didn’t return home as planned from a solo hunting trip in the Christian Valley area on Sunday. The man was located by RCMP and search and rescue crews late Monday afternoon. “There was a slight miscommunication between the hunter and his spouse,” said Corp. Dan Moskaluk.

Apparently, Mihalache conveyed that hunting wasn’t going well and he anticipated staying out for a few more days, but when he didn’t return home, his wife erred on the side of caution and called police, said Moskaluk. “We much prefer receiving the report and finding the person safe and sound,” he said. Mihalache was found about eight kilometres up Rendell Creek Forest Service Road, right where he said he planned to camp out for the hunting trip, police note. “Certainly, sticking to his plan helped out,” said Moskaluk. After being found by searchers, Mihalache spoke with his family and then packed up his gear and returned home.

Cauliflower is essentially broccoli without a tan. Unlike broccoli, cauliflower surrounds its head with its leaves to shield itself from the sun, therefore not allowing chlorophyll to develop. Chlorophyll is responsible for giving vegetables their deep green suntan. But not to worry, cauliflower’s pale complexion still packs a powerful nutritional punch. Cauliflower contains a high amount of vitamin C, folate, fiber and complex carbohydrates. It is also a cruciferous vegetable being studied for its role in reducing cancer risk. Okanagan • 5 Lb. Bag

Man suffers grave injuries in car mishap Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

At first, no one realized that a person had been gravely injured in a crash outside Peachland. Just after midnight on Saturday morning, a 73-year-old Penticton man was headed south on Highway 97 when his GMC SUV hit what he thought was a deer. “The driver of the vehicle, prior to coming on the scene, had seen deer so he had slowed down substantially,” said Const. Steve Holmes. The crash happened near a pullout by Antler’s Beach, where a group in a limo bus had stopped to stretch and have a smoke after spending the evening in Kelowna celebrating a birthday. So the driver of the SUV turned to the limo passengers to call 911 after his SUV was rendered inoperable by the crash. It wasn’t until the limo was ready to head out again to its destination in Penticton that the group realized one of their friends was missing. After checking the ditch, the group found the 19-year-old Penticton man some 30 metres from where he had been struck by the vehicle. The critically injured man was taken to Kelowna General Hospital and then flown to Vancouver General Hospital. Last word from RCMP indicated the man was on life support. Police say there was little illumination in the area at the time of the crash and they have ruled out alcohol use on the part of the SUV driver as a factor in the crash. “At this point, I don’t have any determination as to whether or not charges are forthcoming under the Motor Vehicle Act,” said Holmes.

Downtown merchants anxious about disruptions Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The dollar value of Bernard Avenue’s pending facelift has yet to come to light, but representatives of the business community stressed at a Monday council meeting they’d rather ante up for cosmetic improvements than be left with the street as-is. “We believe the worst possible version of this project for our members and the city would be to see the utilities upgraded while leaving the sidewalks intact,” said John Perrott of the Downtown Kelowna Association. “This option would inflict the most amount of damage to our business without any returns of a new street and the potential buzz created around the finished project.” The downtown strip is to be ripped up next year as part of a necessary utility upgrade. So as that’s being done the city has opted to have a streetscaping plan put into action. It would fit into a downtown plan put together in 2000, and it could potentially lay to rest gripes about the street’s aesthetic value that continually come to the fore.

But improvements that could include adding foliage, changing street parking as well as creating cafe, shopping and further pedestrian space aren’t free and that cost is supposed to be carried in part by the city and in part by the business community, Mayor Sharon Shepherd pointed out. But, if property owners—who were previously floated a cost estimate of $18,000 apiece during one public consultation —balk at the figure, other pay structures may be examined and that’s what came up at the Monday meeting. Options on the table, but ultimately deferred until a later date, include: • Completing the utility and roadwork upgrades and leaving the sidewalk and parking generally as is • Completing the utility and roadwork upgrades and seeking other funding sources/strategies including grants to enhance the streetscape • Increasing parking rates to cover the streetscape costs over a 20-year period • Enticing a property-owner contribution through other provisions, includ-

ing free sidewalk café seating and outdoor merchandising. Perrott said his association, was most keen on the fourth option. “We are particularly encouraged by the concepts of no-cost sidewalk space for cafe seating and merchandising as well as significant and meaningful facade improvement incentives,” said Perrott. “Both of these ideas would appear to have direct benefit for business owners and property owners. The association would like to further explore the benefits for our membership.” The matter is still up in the air, as contractor Space2Place, has yet to finish off plans for the street and the associated cost for all improvements. That should happen in the next three to four months.

Taxpayers won’t feel budget increase Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

An increase of 4.6 per cent in the $3.73 million Okanagan Basin Water Board budget won’t mean taxpayers will have to pay more because assessments have increased in the past year in the valley. The biggest increase for the coming year is in

accounting and auditing services, which are provided by the Central Okanagan Regional District on a cost-recovery basis. Previously, the North Okanagan Regional District provided those services. However, executive director Anna Warwick Sears said she is satisfied the increase is reason-

able, because there’s been an update of services and items are being tracked more carefully in the new system. It jumped from $30,000 to $75,000 for the year. The discussion took place at the first joint meeting of the OBWB board and its technical advisory committee, the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council in Kelowna. In the provisional budget discussed at Tuesday’s board meeting the overall requisition this year from taxpayers is six cents per

$1,000 of assessed property values, unchanged from the previous two years. Of that, 3.5 cents per $1,000 assessment goes to the board’s sewage facilities grant program, while nine cents goes to the water milfoil program, 1.6 cents goes to water management, including drought management, ground water, water pricing, water education, the water supply and demand project and funding to host a water science conference in Osoyoos next year.

senior government are expected to add to the funding available for many projects. An addition to the budget this year goes to fund a new UBC Okanagan Water Research Chair, a commitment which was already approved for five years by each of the three regional districts which make up the OBWB. It’s $100,000 a year, beginning next budget year and is equivalent to .2 cents for $1,000 of assessed value. Board members also discussed increasing an item in the budget for looking into management of groundwater in the valley, but in the end, it was decided if more funding is needed, it could be drawn from other areas of the budget, or from grants. Ted van der Gulick from the agriculture ministry noted it’s likely the province would look for leadership from the local community in moving groundwater regulations along. There’s an opportunity for the water board to take on leadership here. The Central Okanagan’s share of the budget requisition is 58 per cent of the total budget, or $2.18 million, up nearly $100,000 from last year. A vote on the budget will be taken at the next board meeting in December.

FortisBC substation to expand next to Tower Ranch development Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Questions on the changing requirements of being a good corporate citizen came to the fore Monday when Kelowna city council took at look at a FortisBC application to expand one of its power substations. While the company was given council’s blessing to continue its plans to expand the existing substation by 25 per cent on property at the corner of McCurdy Road East and Tower Ranch Road, it

came with some cautionary terms. If it clears all the hoops needed to bring it to fruition, Fortis will need to take measures to minimize the impact on the adjacent orchard. And Coun. Robert Hobson suggested that Fortis go even further, and work to minimize concerns area residents may have about the unsightliness of a larger substation through landscaping. That suggestion was met with some resistance from his peers. “I’m in support of the

substation being there, it’s been there for more than 50 years,” said Coun. Graeme James, reacting to comments that residents in the Tower Ranch development would prefer to see it obscured from view. “(Fortis was) there first. I can see if they can work together with the surrounding residential areas, but I am not really sure it’s their responsibility to landscape the entire thing because a new subdivision is there.” Coun. Luke Stack pointed out that 20 years ago, that kind of mindset

capital news A7

would have prevailed, but these days more emphasis is placed on being a good corporate citizen. “Now it’s a residential neighbourhood and it’s important to be a part of the community,” he said. “I think there’s a good neighbour component of this.” The Fortis substation is in the Agricultural Land Reserve—although it was constructed even before there was an ALR—and it will have to go to the Agricultural Land Commission for further approval.

CORD grapples with pressures of continued population growth Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The regional district is working with cities, towns and districts across the Central Okanagan as they plan how best to cope with future population growth. Projections anticipate the Central Okanagan will add some 65,000 more people over the next 15 years, bringing the area population to around 225,000 residents. Regional growth strategy coordinator David Widdis noted the number is a ballpark figure, and where exactly the growth will occur is also not something that can be precisely defined. Popularity of areas and market conditions for housing are just some of the factors that determine where people choose to settle. What the regional growth strategy does

examine is how to make sure the current Okanagan lifestyle can be maintained despite the addition of several thousand more human beings. This demands planning around facets from agriculture to the environment. “On the whole, we want to grow sustainably, (and) make sure we’re preserving those environmental areas.” Widdis said the process is the review of the strategy which was first adopted in 2000. He said the purpose of the strategy is to promote human settlement in the region, but done in a sustainable way. Regional growth has social, economic and environmental effects. Widdis said the planning process involves getting all of the member municipalities and electoral areas to look beyond their boundaries.

“A lot of their decisions do have impact regionally.” Widdis pointed out air quality, water resources, transportation and affordable housing are also examined within the strategy. The plan does not get into land use specifics, but focuses on how to make processes from aggregate supply to transportation more efficient across the region. Specific municipalities will look at their own transportation systems or community plans within the context of wider goals. These goals are focused on how the region can accommodate its growing population in a sustainable way. Widdis noted all the municipalities in the area are on side to make sure the region is growing in an efficient way and a good way. He added that mu-

nicipalities and electoral areas just have to make sure they are coordinating across the board, and developing with the same priorities in mind. The review process is anticipated to take approximately two years. Widdis noted it may go longer or shorter, as parts of the strategy are examined by municipalities and the public. What municipalities have done in their own community plans will figure into the regional strategy. “We want to try and ultimately stitch the entire region together using those community plans.” Individual municipalities have their own goals that they set for their areas. Widdis added that hopefully everybody will try to strive towards the same large goal of a sustainable community.

When it comes to finding ways to improve community dental care, soft drink companies aren’t generally heralded as the saviour. But when Shirley Goebel heard about the Pepsi Refresh Project, she rallied the troops at Kelowna Gospel Mission’s dental clinic to take a stab at earning a much-needed $100,000 grant that could improve the smiles and health of countless locals. “We need to expand our clinic because we are so overwhelmed with need,” said Goebel, the Mission’s director of dental services. “We’d like to take our clinic from two (dental) chairs to four chairs so we can better serve our community.”

Goebel, who has been with the clinic that addresses dental needs for low income Kelowna residents since it opened six years ago, was introduced to the Pepsi grant competition this summer and geared up to have an application hit the web this fall. Pepsi put the Gospel Mission online as a contestant today and from this point forward, it’s up to voters to help increase the reach of the Mission’s dental program by voting once a day, every day, until Dec. 31 when the winner will be unveiled. There are countless reasons why the community should help the free clinic come out first in the intervening weeks. “We encourage everyone to vote everyday so we can show the rest of Canada how we take care of our own in our communi-

ty,” she said, explaining the clinic, which is staffed with volunteers from UBC dental students out of Vancouver General Hospital and local dentists, is meeting an urgent and growing need. “Right now we are booked several months out…I am still calling referrals from last fall for our restorative clinic, where we provide basic dental care.” It’s something that’s key to overall health, but even the cosmetic aspect of dental care can act as a barrier to those who want to be in the workforce, but aren’t there yet. “They smile, and people say ‘I don’t want that in my business,’” she said. “We really value, as a society, how people look. We have had many clients who we helped get their smiles and they get their

gion observes Mountain Time, and their clocks synchronize with Alberta. The Peace River region does not observe Daylight Savings Time (DST), so their clocks do not change. Saskatchewan has chosen to remain on Central Standard Time year round. In 2007, the provincial government chose to follow the United States and begin DST three weeks earlier and have it last one week longer. “Adjusting our Daylight Saving Time dates will align us with the United States and other Canadian provinces,” then Attorney General Wally Oppal said in 2007. “During a month-long consultation, we received 4,296 written and electronic submissions from the public, business and other organizations. Over 90 per cent were in favour of the change,” he ex-



plained. As part of the Energy Policy Act, United States moved the DST change. This was an energysaving policy to allow more daylight in the evening hours when energy usage is greatest. George Vernon Hudson presented a scientific paper advocating seasonal time adjustment, now known as DST. Hudson is better known as an entomologist and devoted his time away from his work as a postal clerk to catalogue New Zealand’s insects.

Appeal Court centennial marked Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

The 100-year history of the appeal court in this province and the landmark decisions it has rendered that shaped our rights were heralded yesterday at a special ceremony in Kelowna marking the centennial of the B.C. Court of Appeal. “This milestone is an opportunity to share our achievements with the public we serve, ensuring the B.C. Court of Appeal is an accessible and transparent court, reflective of its society and times,” said Chief Justice Lance Finch. The event, held in courtroom one of the Kelowna Law Courts, was the final special-sitting of the court’s year-long centenary celebrations around the province.

It also marked the 20th anniversary of the appeal court’s ability to hear cases in Kelowna, although it has been a number of years since an appeal hearing has been held in this community. “Bringing the court to the Interior of the province increases access to justice,” said local Crown lawyer Colin Forsyth on behalf of the attorney general. Much has changed in the law since the B.C. Court of Appeal first sat in Victoria in January 1910. And the decisions of the various justices over the years have left a “significant legacy” of policy and decisions. “They have influenced the development of law and policy on a national scale,” said Clarke Burnett on behalf of the Minister of Justice.

He pointed to such areas as search and seizure and human rights. As well, Forsyth pointed to a decision of the court that was recently upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada that clarified what type of access an accused person can have to a lawyer while under police interrogation. Speakers also reflected on the court’s efforts to be open to the public and Glen Ridgway, president of the Law Society of B.C., urged the court to stay the course. “We must recognize that access to justice is an informed access to justice,” he said. He also highlighted the challenge of the court to deal with the issue of unrepresented litigants and urged the courts to work with the law society to work through that

issue. The Court of Appeal is B.C.’s highest court and hears appeals from the province’s trial courts— Supreme Court and provincial court. It also hears reviews from a number of government agencies and tribunals. As a reviewing court, it focuses on whether the process was conducted fairly and whether the decision complies with established law. In addition to the special sitting here, the three Appeal Court justices in Kelowna for the event were scheduled to have a working lunch with local lawyers yesterday to discuss matters of interest to the local bar, as well as attend a dinner to commemorate the anniversary.

Fair offers up-close look at 21st century careers Instructors from more than 50 diverse disciplines at Okanagan College, along with an equal number of employers from throughout the Okanagan Valley, are gearing up for the largest, and longestrunning career fair in the southern Interior. The 29th annual Okanagan College Career Fair will take place Nov. 7 from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the KLO campus in Kelowna. Potential students curious about careers ranging from traditional arts and sciences to fields like aircraft maintenance engineering, interior decorating, or even audio engineering and music production, can meet instructors to find

out more about educational pathways and career opportunities. Visitors to the free event can also chat with experts and employers from various agencies, like the National Research Council of Canada, the RCMP, Interior Health’s diagnostic imaging department and numerous others. “It’s great to see a lot of exhibitors from previous years come back and support the fair. But it’s also great to have new exhibitors on board this year, like Terus Construction and Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing,” said fair coordinator Michelle Lowry. “It’s a good opportun-

ity for job seekers to find organizations that are actively recruiting employees and learn about educational requirements to secure such jobs.” Back for the second year is the popular community science celebration, which takes place inside the College’s Centre for Learning and features Science World and the Central Okanagan School District. New this year will be a special outdoor trades tent in the front parking lot of the KLO campus, featuring a souped-up golf cart put together by the welding and automotive trades students, plus a metal fabrication apron and weld-

ing trailer. Inside the welding shop itself, visitors can try the welding, using a new virtual reality welding simulator. John Haller, dean of trades and apprenticeship, said the current economy means there is a high level of competition for employment. But he’s equally aware that as baby boomers enter their retirement years, there is a growing need for a new generation of skilled workers. “The projected skills shortages are still forthcoming, which means students should be training now to meet the future demands,” he said.

Gardening pioneer remembered as a mom


uesday, Nov.2, would have been my mother’s 93rd birthday. Evelyn Burnett was born in 1916 in Calgary, the second eldest of four children to Leigh and Helen Henderson. In about 1937, her family moved to Kelowna, and shortly after Evelyn met my dad at a United Church Young Peoples function.


Don Burnett They married in 1942 and there began my mom’s passion for all things green and beautiful.

My parents worked together in the Burnett family business and took it over when my grandfather, Arthur Burnett, met his untimely death in a car accident near Princeton in 1952. Mom involved herself in all aspects of the business which included greenhouse production, nursery sales and floristry. She was instrumental in the promotion of the

business by organizing events such as pumpkin carving contests, wedding shows, apple juicing days and the legendary Christmas Open House Parties which started in 1962 with the last one in 1996. For several years when my brother Al, sister Joan and I were younger, she would have a housekeeper make lunches and take care of us to allow her to do her duties at the garden centre. However, this was only in the busiest part of the year—in spring—as during the rest of the year she focused on our well being and upbringing. One of the memories I have while growing up in the Burnett home was the use of the dining room table. The only time it was used as a place to gather and eat was at Christmas and Easter and perhaps

a few other special occasions. The rest of the time the dining room was the “office.” The table served as a work desk, especially in the winter time when all the organizing for the spring growing season had to be done. Mom spent hours and hours ordering seeds, cuttings and nursery stock as well as making signs for the plant displays and thousands of tags for the bedding plant packs. All of this was done in her beautiful handwriting with felt pen. Seed catalogues were cut into shreds, sacrificed for the pictures she used for her signs. Mom did it all including the bookkeeping with out the use of a computer. Oh how she would have enjoyed the technology of today. Actually, she did experience a taste of what was to come when we

School system can improve nutrition habits Eating from A1 without political policy. B.C. could eliminate its reliance on this import system, and the system of trucking food from community to community currently adding harmful emissions believed partially responsible for climate change to the atmosphere, by harnessing the purchasing power of major public institutions, the study suggests. Schools, in particular, could be harnessed to radically alter the retail food industry, first by educating a new generation of climate savvy, health-conscious consumers, but on a more immediate basis by directing their purchasing power toward the local food system. “Schools have huge potential to source food for meal programs from local sources, but also to grow food on school land,” the study reads. “Expanding programs

could have a payoff in terms of nutritious meals for students, but also engaging children in how to grow food and in understanding the components of a healthy diet.” Because schools educate the next generation of decision-makers, the report points out the school system has “tremendous potential for addressing hunger, improving nutrition and teaching kids where food comes from” in curriculum development. The researchers linked with the Think and Eat Green At School research project, underway in the Vancouver School District, are investigating different ways to connect kids and foods more effectively in the school curriculum. The project includes links between classrooms and the UBC farm, nutrition-focused school programming, school gardens and so forth with an eye to har-

nessing the public sector to amplify the local food system, including farmers markets, community food networks and support for local growers. Lee said his study suggests B.C. should be aiming for 80 per cent self-reliance in its food system by 2030. No one from the Central Okanagan School District, or its board of education, could be reached for comment on how the Central Okanagan school

district purchases food and encourages healthy, nutritious choices; however, the school district has traditionally been a leader in this area, in part due to the on-going advocacy of trustee Anna Hunt-Binkley who has taken a lead role on the issue. During last week’s school board meeting, Hunt-Binkley said she attended the Championing Public Health Nutrition 2010 conference and sat beside Dr. Frances-

co Branca, director of nutrition for health and development for the World Health Organization, who gave the keynote address. She noted this school district’s nutrition policies, which were forwarded to the provincial level and eventually used in the formation of new guidelines in Ontario, were generating significant buzz at the conference under the Ontario guideline’s name.

Fatal from A1 lights in the area. Evans, clad in dark clothing, was struck from behind as she walked in the same direction as traffic along the roadway, which doesn’t have a sidewalk, police said. The death of the George Elliot Secondary student prompted calls for road improvements, and since her passing, the speed limit in front of the high school, located not far from the crash site, was reduced to 30 kilometres per hour. As well, the fog lines have been repainted and crosswalks have been painted where the sidewalks end as part of an effort to encourage students to walk facing traffic. “It’s an ongoing process,” said Lake Country Mayor James Baker, noting many road improvements are in the district’s long term plan. “We are working at it and we’re working with the students (at George Elliot Secondary) and the engineering department.” When the district incorporated 15 years ago, many of the area’s roads met provincial standards for rural roads. Baker says district staff are going after grants

Josie Evans to improve them and they are also requiring sidewalks for new developments. Lodge Road, which is more narrow than Bottom Wood Lake Road and is also used by students, is being targeted for improvements that will hopefully happen in the next year, said Baker.

pital and despite numerous searches—including one about a week ago— the young man has not been located. Police say the video will include interviews and a reenactment of Rooney in the area he was last seen. “Hopefully a visual like that might jog a memory,” said Corp. Dan Moskaluk. Before he disappeared, Rooney was at the Shambhala music festival near Salmo and missed his ride back to Kelowna.

He somehow made his way to Christina Lake, where he was assaulted, and was then picked up by a police officer when he was seen hitchhiking. The officer drove Rooney to Grand Forks, where he was planning to take the bus back to Kelowna. But Rooney apparently took the officer’s advice to have his wounds checked out, and he instead checked himself into the Grand Forks Hospital. He was last seen on hospital grounds and left behind a backpack con-

Should Rick Mercer eat at RauDZ or Earl’s Kitchen and Bar? This was the question on Twitter Monday as one of Canada’s top comedians tossed a few Tweets around cyberspace to find

a good place to eat in Kelowna. Mercer was in B.C. to do a special segment on the 125th anniversary of the last spike on the Canadian Pacific railway, spending the Halloween weekend in Glacier National Park to do the filming.

By Monday, his publicist confirmed he was in Kelowna enjoying a brief stopover in a very misty version of our city, though the show had no plans to film in the vicinity. The segment of the Mercer Report will air on Nov. 9 in his regular 8 p.m. time slot on CBC,

immediately following the actual Nov. 7 anniversary of the achievement. The last spike was driven between Revelstoke and Sicamous at a stop called Craigellachie in 1885 after a very difficult last stretch through the Rocky Mountains. “As you can imagine there were some obstacles to getting there,” said Jacolyn Daniluck, who is handling media relations for the anniversary celebration this coming weekend. In order to get to the last spike site, the railway had to come through Roger’s Pass and Mercer’s report will include some information on the engineering feats needed to make it all happen— though presumably in his trademark tongue-incheek style. An event will be held Sunday at noon at the Craigellachie site to commemorate the historic anniversary and visitors from the Okanagan are welcome. Parks Canada and Canadian Pacific Railway worked on the celebration together and bringing Mercer in to tell the story.

As the bright leaves fade and fall, and the air turns chilly, my thoughts naturally turn to warm and inviting indoor activities—like shopping, restaurant-hopping and entertainment. Fortunately for all of us, downtown Kelowna has all these things in spades. Hugely popular Thai restaurant Bai Tong tells me that they’ll be in a new downtown location as of Nov. 1. The restaurant moving to 275 Bernard (the former Red Lotus location). Be sure to pay them a visit in their pretty new spot. Great news. The Bike Shop Cafe, at 101-1357 Ellis St., will host a Fall Concert series, mostly on Saturday nights, from 7 to 9 p.m., featuring many talented musicians with a flair for performing in an intimate coffeehouse setting. The November lineup looks fabulous: Windborn on Nov. 6, and Ritmo Caliente on Nov. 13 just to name a few. How

wonderful to have another place downtown where we can experience live music. This marvelous cafe has been providing yummy fresh food to hungry Kelownians for 12 years now. It’s so great to see that they’re getting into the entertainment business too. For the rest of their line-up and for more info, check out their website, Two grand dames of downtown have recently had facelifts (don’t get too excited—I’m talking about buildings). The Kelowna Community Theatre recently had her biggest renovation in 50 years this August. The theatre reopened Sept. 10 with a new theatre rigging system, new flooring and new paint. As one of the busiest theatres in B.C., her new look will be much appreciated by the public. The other building with a recent renovation is the Laurel Packinghouse, at 1304 Ellis St. The building houses

the B.C. Orchard Industry Museum and the B.C. Wine Museum/VQA Wine Shop as well. This grand dame will unveil her facelift at her grand re-opening party on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The celebrations will include activities and fun for all, including a pie walk, entertainment, exhibits by local artisans, and silent auction and lots more. Call 250-763-2417 for more info. An event that’s highly anticipated every November is the Holiday Festival of Creations along with the Potters & Artisans Fall Gift Show & Sale. This year’s festival takes place at Prospera Place on Nov.13, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Nov.14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show features gifted artisans from throughout B.C., displaying thousands of unique arts, crafts, food products, gift-giving and home decor ideas. The potters and artisans gift show and sale takes place at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Nov. 13, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,

and Nov. 14, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. What a fabulous way to spend a chilly fall day. Do the shows, then do lunch and a bit more shopping downtown. Who knows, you may be able to tie up your whole Christmas list in one day. One more annual event not to be missed is the Downtown Christmas Light-Up. This year, it will be on Saturday Nov. 27, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with free familyfriendly events and activities at the Memorial Arena, Kelowna Art Gallery, the Laurel Packinghouse and Kerry Park. Call 250862-3515 for more info. Light-Up events will also be happening at the Towne Centre Mall, 565 Bernard on Saturday, Nov. 27, from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Their fun events will include young fiddlers Chloe, Kyle & Co., face painting, children’s crafts and treats, pianist Heather David and magician Leif David.

Bait car thwarts Kelowna carjacker Roger Knox CONTRIBUTOR

Travelling at a high rate of speed toward Vernon, a would-be car thief got a surprise when the car started slowing down on its own in Spallumcheen. Turns out the Kelowna man had taken an RCMP bait car from the Salmon Arm area. The Vernon detachment was notified of the bait car activation at around 9 p.m. Saturday. “A police dog service handler and his dog went out toward Armstrong and set up, and when the vehicle went past them, they called to have the bait car shut down,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “That happened near Eagle Rock Road on Highway 97A.” When officers are in close proximity to a bait car, they will ask to have the car shut down when it’s safe to do so. In this case, the vehicle had slowed and was on a straight stretch of highway when the call to activate the bait car’s kill

switch was placed. “It’s very much like running out of gas,” said Molendyk. “The kill switch on the vehicle kills the engine, but it still functions so the driver can pull it over.” The lone male occupant was arrested on the spot. Had he chosen to run,

the police service dog was ready to give chase. The man, 43, from the Kelowna area, was also determined by RCMP to be intoxicated. He was slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Monday to face charges of possession of stolen property, impaired driving and breach of a

court order, which had the provision that the suspect was not to be alone in a vehicle unless the vehicle’s owner is present.

Large tree wanted for Roxby Centennial Plaza

Roxby Centennial Plaza in Rutland will sparkle with holiday lights later this month—after someone donates a large evergreen to the City of Kelowna. The city park services department is putting out the call to residents who want to donate a live 30- to 40-foot tall spruce or fir tree for the plaza’s Christmas display. This is the first year a large, decorated tree will be erected in the plaza. “We’re looking for a nice, healthy tree from somewhere within the city’s boundaries,� said City of Kelowna arborist Harry Burggraaf.

“We want to do something festive at Roxby Plaza this Christmas, so we’re appealing to the public to offer a tree from their property and we’ll come and cut it down.� Anyone who has an appropriate tree to offer can leave their name, address and phone number with the parks services office, 250-469-8503. The city used to ask residents to donate a large tree for a Christmas display at Kerry Park. But for the last two years a living tree in that location has served as the focal point for the downtown Christmas display.

The popularity of the second annual Spooktacular Halloween Pumpkin Walk at Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park was astounding, say regional district officials. Last Saturday night, some 500 people, including dozens of families dressed in their Halloween costumes, strolled along the pathways of the historic nut orchard that were lined with more than 100 glowing, carved pumpkins. In all, 68 pumpkins vied for votes in the various categories. D. Gratton’s entry was voted Most Original pumpkin, the Scariest pumpkin was entered by A. Bachynsky (see bottom two photos), the Funniest entry came from the Findlater family, the Cutest entry came from M. Hunter, the Best Sport Team pumpkin was from J. Konechny and the creative staff at the Capital News won for the Best Business category (top photo). Another big winner at the event was the West Kelowna Food Bank. Visitors donated more than $200 in cash and enough food to fill the West Kelowna Fire-Rescue ladder truck! The Pumpkin Walk event also featured music from the Mount Boucherie jazz band, entertainment from Greg the Magician, hot beverages and Halloween treats with participation from the Gellatly Nut Farm Society and the Cove Lakeside Resort.

Bronze for Heat women Youngest Rockets W WHL

Warren Henderson

to get their ice time


It wasn’t precisely the colour of hardware they were looking for. Still, a bronze medal at the BCCAA women’s soccer championship has raised the bar to new heights for the UBC Okanagan Heat program. On Sunday in Surrey, the Heat got past the Vancouver Island University Mariners 3-2 in a shootout in the third-place game for the school’s first medal ever in women’s soccer. But it didn’t look promising early on as VIU out shot the Heat 20-0 in the first half and took a 2-0 lead. Only some stellar goal keeping from allstar Sabrina Gasparic kept UBCO within striking distance. UBCO then rallied in the second half, as Madeleine Greig and Jennifer Kidd scored goals to force a shootout. In penalty kicks, Jennifer Kidd, Kira Byers, Kelsey Satterfield and Sydney Nakazawa all scored for UBCO, while two Mariner players hit the cross bar. “It is a crazy game,” said Heat coach Claire Paterson. “We played really well on Saturday and lost, then we turn around and have one of the worst 45 minutes all season and manage to pull out a win. I am really glad the team turned things around in the second half and managed to pull through.” It was Saturday’s heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Langara in the semifinals—their only defeat of the season—that ultimately cost the Heat a shot at gold. The Heat and Falcons ended regulation tied 2-2, then would play two scoreless 15-minute overtime sessions. In the shootout, two Heat players missed their kicks, while Langara con-

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Bruce Hamilton isn’t normally a proponent of carrying more than two 16-year-old players on his roster. But considering his club’s listless start to the 2010-11 WHL campaign, the Kelowna Rockets GM sees an opportunity to invest some time in the club’s future. The Rockets got just a little bit younger this week when they added Colton Heffley, 16, from his midget team in Swift Current. The Saskatchewan-based Legionnaires have been struggling on the ice and Hamilton believes Heffley—who can play defense or forward— would be better served playing in Kelowna. The team’s other 16-year-olds are defenceman Damon Severson and forward Jason Siebert. The Rockets also have six players who are 17. “I don’t think there’s any panic, but playing the way we are right now, we might as well get our

young guys going and get them learning what it’s going to take to play here,” Hamilton said. “I’m not a big believer in having a bunch of young guys around, but if you look at the real picture, we’ve got a lot of older guys who aren’t doing much right now. I’d like to try and get them all into at least 40 games or so.” With the addition of Heffley, the Rockets’ roster now stands at 25, a number Hamilton expects to pare down by two in the not-too-distant future. Asked if a trade or two might be in the offing, Hamilton said it’s far too early for a roster shakeup—regardless of whether the Rockets would be a buyer or seller. Besides, he said, at just 15 games into the season, making knee-jerk decisions is never the best approach. “As tight as the league is right now, you win three games are you’re right back in the middle of it,” he said. “It’s still early, so we’re not panicking.” When it comes to

trade talk, defenceman of the year Tyson Barrie is, not surprisingly at the top of the wish-list for other WHL clubs. “I get calls about Tyson and Mitchell Callahan all the time, they’re the only two guys teams are really interested in,” said Hamilton. “I have no intention of trading Tyson, he’s too important for us in the development of our young defencemen, like Severson. Unless a deal blew our socks off, I don’t see doing anything with either of those guys. “I’m not going to trade an 18-, 19-, or 20-year-old to get an 18-,19-, 20-yearold in return,” he added. “We’d rather get our kids started and get them playing.” The Rockets are in the midst of a stretch of four games in five nights. Kelowna will be in Kamloops Wednesday, in Vancouver on Friday, then will return home to play the Chilliwack Bruins on Saturday. whenderson

For the Heat, which went 10-0-2 in the regular season, it was a tough result to swallow—but the only blemish on an otherwise highly successful season. “It’s probably one of the toughest losses to accept,” said graduating forward Emma Nixon. “We outplayed the opposition for 110 minutes, and every single person left it all out on the field.

favor but we still have so much to be proud of as we accomplished so much this season.” Under coach Paterson’s guidance for the last three seasons, the Heat women have taken some dramatic steps forward. After missing the playoffs in 2008, the UBCO women went 5-4-3 in 2009 to make it to the post season for the first time school history. In 2010, the Heat finished atop the BCCAA’s Group A with an unbeat-

en record. In addition, striker Alexa Kennedy led the conference in goals and was named the BCCAA player of the year, while Paterson was chosen as coach of the year.

Warriors 2 from Surrey Coming off what could be their most consistent effort of the B.C. Hockey League season, the Westside Warriors will be looking to keep a modest two game winning streak going this weekend. The Warriors swept both ends of a home-andhome series with the Surrey Eagles last weekend, winning 4-2 at Royal LePage Place on Friday and then traveling to Surrey on Saturday and winning




5-3. “No question, we had a good weekend,” said

Warriors’ coach Darren Yopyk. “I thought we put our best effort forward for two straight games which we hadn’t done for a while.” The two wins improved the Warriors record to 9-8-1-1 this season, fifth place in the BCHL Interior Conference.

Warriors can claim fourth best power play unit in BCHL Warriors from A17 against Surrey, the third highest scoring team in the BCHL. The Warriors allowed just two power play goals against, both goals coming with just seconds remaining on Eagles’ power plays. “The biggest thing

with special teams is momentum,” said Yopyk. “Sometimes those kills or power plays create momentum. So far this season we’ve been pretty good.” Heading into the weekend the Warriors sport the fourth best power play unit in the league and

the fifth best penalty kill. Still the club has struggled with consistency, something Yopyk hopes turns around. “We’ve had some very good hockey games and we’ve had some not so good games,” he said. “We haven’t played consistent enough. We have to keep things simple and outwork teams.” This weekend the Warriors play Friday at home to Coquitlam before traveling to Merritt to play the Centennials on Saturday.

The Express sit at 8-80-3 in the Coastal Conference while Merritt has just four wins this season. One of those came against Westside however. Yopyk says the Warriors want to build on two straight wins with solid efforts this weekend. “That’s our goal,” he said. “We’re going to have a good week of practice and work on some things. It’s about having a consistent effort and if we do that then I think we will be fine.”

Cariboo 2 from Ok Rockets


OKANAGAN ROCKETS goaltender Connor DeMelo goes for the poke check against the Cariboo Cougars in BCMML action Saturday at the Capital News Centre.


Bears in must-win position Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

It was a scenario Mt. Boucherie head coach Mike Godwin would rather not have faced. As it is, the Bears must win on the final night of the B.C. high school regular season to make the playoffs. The injury-riddled Bears (1-2) will host Salmon Arm (2-1) Friday at 5 p.m. at the Apple Bowl in the Okanagan AAA Conference finale. If the Bears win by 12 points or more, they will finish in second spot. A win by less than 12 and Boucherie will take third place and go on the road for the playoffs. A loss, and Mike Godwin’s team is out. “We just have to concentrate on winning and not worry about by how much,” Godwin said. “That’s easier said than done, Salmon Arm is a pretty good team. The guys will have to get back to basics, come out and be ready to play.” With KSS having clinched first spot, the Bears were hoping they’d also have a post season berth already sewed up. But a 34-27 loss Friday to South Kamloops has left their year hanging in the balance. Starting quarterback John Cochrane missed the game with an injury will not likely be back this week. Leading rusher Mikail Maloff left in the second quarter and is

questionable for Friday. Safety/running back Matt Meerdink and centre Keegan Pinchbeck-Kerr were

also sidelined in the loss to the Titans. More than 200 yards rushing and 145 yards

An undermanned Okanagan Rockets squad came up empty in a B.C. Major Midget League weekend set as Brandon West made his debut as the club’s interim head coach. The Rockets, dogged by a number of injuries and suspensions, lost a pair of games on home ice to the Cariboo Cougars. On Saturday at CNC, the Cougars were 7-4 winners as the Rockets—with just 14 skaters—were able to dress only four defenceman, including 14-yearold call-up Connor Harding. Harlan Orr scored twice in the loss, with Jordan Burns and Mat Lambert adding singles as Okanagan’s four-game winning streak came to an end. On Sunday, the Cougars completed the sweep with a 7-2 win. The 14 goals surrendered is the most allowed by the Rockets in a two-

game set this season. “Our hockey team prides ourselves in our defensive zone coverage” said West. “We didn’t work hard enough in our own zone this weekend to win hockey games. We will learn from this and get back at it on Tuesday and Thursday in preparation for another couple of tough games in Victoria next weekend.” West took over the Rockets on an interim basis when head coach Misko Antisin accepted a professional coaching offer in Switzerland. West and the Rockets (6-6-0) will visit the South Island Thunderbirds on Saturday and Sunday.


It was a weekend of mixed results as the Kelowna Chiefs split a pair of games in KIJHL action. On Friday, the Chiefs took down the home town Princeton Posse 5-2.

Colten DeFrias paced the Kelowna attack with two goals and two assists, while Dane Rupert added a goal and two assists. Mark Mackenzie and Luke Richardson had the other goals while Conor Barrie stopped 33 shots for the win in goal. On Saturday, the Chiefs were swamped 11-1 by the Okanagan Division-leading Osoyoos v. The hometown Coyotes, who bolted out to a 5-0 first period lead, scored four times on the power play. Landon Andrusiak had the lone marker for the Chiefs who were out shot 56-33. Kelowna (10-9-0-0) sits second in the Okanagan Division, 14 points back of Osoyoos (15-1-13). The Chiefs return to action this Friday night against the North Okanagan Knights. Face off at Rutland Arena is 7 p.m.

Heat women start 2-0


TAYLOR MASSEY of Okanagan Adventist Academy carries the ball past a couple of defenders

from Fraser Valley Adventist Academy during a 20-team flag football tournament held recently at Quigley Elementary. About 250 students from B.C. and Alberta schools took part in the weekend-long sports and fellowship event.

The UBC Okanagan Heat looked every bit like the two-time defending CCAA womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball champs sweeping their first two matches of the 2010-11 campaign. Steve Manuelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew opened up on Friday night in Abbotsford with a 3-0 (25-13, 25-17, 25-14) dismantling of the CBC Bearcats. Newcomer Myrte Schon paced the Heat with 13 kills and three aces. Kaylan Gouldsborough added 10 kills and Kenrda Wayling had nine digs and two aces. After playing all of their exhibition matches against Canada West competition, Manuel was pleased with the way his team adjusted for the start of BCCAA season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of our pre season competition was against Canada West teams where the speed and pace of the game is quite different,â&#x20AC;? said Manuel, the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought we adapted well and overall we played well.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, the Heat were pushed harder by the

Fraser Valley Cascades before emerging with a 3-0 win (25-20, 25-20, 2519). Schon again led the way with 10 kills and seven digs. Goldsborough and Wayling added eight and six kills, respectively, while setter Caitlin Nyhus had eights digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw again over the course of this weekend how tough teams will play against us,â&#x20AC;? said Nyhus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to be the team that works harder than everyone else, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we won our two national championships and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we have to do to win a third.â&#x20AC;? The Heat womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squads will play their home openers this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Friday against Capilano and Saturday against Douglas.


The UBC Okanagan menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad opened the 2010-11 BCCAA season with a split of their first two matches in Abbotsford. On Friday, the Heat took care of CBC in

straight sets (25-22, 2517, 25-19). Third-year player, Nate Speijer led the Heat with 16 kills, while year, Greg Niemantsverdriet followed with 10 kills. Mark Broome led the team with three blocks, while Chris Howe recorded a career-high 1.000 attack percentage On Saturday, a tightly contested match from start to finish saw Fraser Valley defeat UBCO 3-1 (22-25, 25-27, 25-23, 21-25). It was the Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first conference loss in 17 matches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a nutshell, we just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared for UFV,â&#x20AC;? said Heat coach Greg Poitras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They did what was necessary to beat us and were very disciplined in attacking our weaknesses. We were outworked by the Cascades as they put on a defensive performance that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen this year,â&#x20AC;? Poitras said. Speijer led the Heat Saturday with 17 kills, while Niemantsverdriet had 14. Howe had seven kills and three blocks.

Owls win 9th straight valley title McKinley steals show The defending B.C. champs are on their way back to provincials. The Kelowna Owls won their ninth consecutive Okanagan Valley AAA girls field hockey championship Saturday at the CNC turf with a 4-0 shutout of the South Kamloops Titans in the final. Parke Prodan, Suzanne de Lange, Jonel Boileau and Breezy Beadury scored first-half goals for KSS, while Didi Kahl earned the shutout. Boileau earned player of the game honours, with honourable mention going to Parke Prodan. It was a satisfying weekend of field hockey for the Owls who hadn’t been playing their best heading into valley championship. “The Owls returned to their brand of field hockey after having a bit of a letdown in the past two weeks,” said Owls head coachArnar Bernhardsson who, along with assistants Lorne Buna and Brian Demug, have coached KSS to the last eight valley titles. After the Owls built up a 4-0 lead, Bernhardsson said the defense for Kelowna held firm. “The Titans threatened a few times but the Owls defensive crew of Sam Coyston, Kimiko Durer, Tayler Sawchuck, Lioba

the fans.” Entering the tournament, Canada’s longstanding rivals from the south have won back-toback tournaments, with Vees alumni Beau Bennett helping the U.S. side last year. However, it’s not just the Americans that Canadian fans and players should be weary of. “Don’t take Switzerland lightly,” said Nicholson. “I’m pretty sure they are going to have four players that played in the World Juniors last year. You just start with that as returning players. They were a pretty good team at the World Juniors so they are going to be pretty good. Swiss hockey has really improved, and if Team Canada doesn’t play their best games, they could be in a little bit of trouble.” Nicholson was on hand for the roster announcement in Penticton. “I think it’s very special for it to be in Penticton,” said Nicholson, who is excited to watch local players Madison Dias and Mark MacMillan. However, Nicholson is also excited about the people in hockey the tournament is attracting. “I have talked to a lot of NHL general managers about the calibre of the players here,” said Nicholson, who during his speech for the announcement said this tournament will attract more scouts than the World Junior Championship. “They are really excited. I know there’s going to be a lot of interest. Any time you get a couple of real good Canadian teams and you bring in some of the European teams, it’s going to be really exciting for all of the fans.”

Winds of revolt are building


irst it was the Liberals starting to implode over the harmonized sales tax debacle. Liberal insiders started calling for Premier Gordon Campbell to step down while the party faithful stood behind the leader. Then it was the NDP’s turn. It all started innocently enough with a couple of un-vetted lines penned by Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson. He was turfed from cau-

cus, which started the ball rolling. Every day it seems we hear more New Democrats are disaffected with James’ leadership. Simpson’s riding association executive have supported him and passed a motion calling for a leadership review in 2011. All of a sudden, while it appeared all the NDP had to do was show up in 2013 and they would form government, everything has changed. It seems like Campbell is more likely to sur-


vive the internal party revolt than James. One thing the NDP revolt has going for it is that it appears that accidental coup will see James’ ouster sooner rather than later. Campbell, on the other hand, looks like he’ll be able to hang on for a while. Why does that benefit the NDP? Because if they are going to head into the next election with a new leader, better to get one

in place now. Same goes for the Liberals. If there is one lesson to be learned from British Columbia politics, it’s that when the winds of leadership change start blowing, they don’t usually stop until they’ve accomplished their goal. It’s hard for any political leader to survive a revolt from within. And that is what we’ve seen with both the Liberals and the NDP.

shine.” (That is as long as a strong wind is not blowing at the same time. Apparently, the new roof will also be unable to close during a wind storm.) So, instead of trying to deal with the weather as it happens, stadium staff will rely on weather forecasts prior to an event and decide then if the roof should be left open or closed. Given that the new roof is costing more than four times the price of the entire facility when it was build in 1983—and one-third more than the original budgeted cost in 2009—news of the opening and closing limitations has come as a shock to some. But B.C. Place officials say it was never a secret, the media just never asked. The reason for the limitation is be-

cause the building itself cannot support the weight of a metal retractable roof so the material fold out version had to be used. The opening and closing will operate like a giant horizontal curtain, with the roof stored in a large unit high above centre field when open. It will be a replacement for the iconic “marshmallow” air-supported material dome that used to crown B.C. Place. For 27 years it was a distinctive part of the city’s skyline. But wear, tear, age and the a desire to play outdoors when indoors, spelled the end for the original roof. B.C. taxpayers are now paying for the province’s latest “mega-project— the largest roof retrofit of its kind in

the world. Over the years, the stadium has hosted every one from the Queen to the Pope, from Olympians to rock stars and sports teams to boat shows. All under a fixed roof. But the desire for fresh, rather than pressurized, air was too much. So, for $458 million—more than $500 million when you take other stadium improvements into account— taxpayers are getting a new roof that only does part of the job. Given the facility is a sports stadium there’s really just one thing to say—somebody dropped the ball here. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor.

No debate on genetically modified crops To the editor: I am deeply disappointed with both Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Stockwell Day and Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan, as each had an opportunity to stand up for natural food and natural farmers. But on Oct. 27, both voted to prematurely end the debate about genetically modified food crops. Despite having received over 3,000 signatures from local constituents in support of Bill C474 neither elected representative made a stand in Parliament to protect our natural food supply. Why is that? The supporters of genetic engineering had their say in the House of Commons but the farmers who are losing their export markets and livelihoods were shown the door before they were allowed to speak. The president of the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Organic Growers wanted to tell Parliament that the seeds and pollen from gene-altered plants are contamin-

ating the fields of natural farmers. This means that farmers cannot sell their crops to any of the 28 countries that make up the European Union. Europeans do not want to eat plants genetically altered to produce their own insecticides inside the plant. Europe rejects GMOs (genetically modified organisms) for health and environmental reasons. To add insult to injury, farmers not only lose their export markets when their fields are contaminated, they are also sued for using the gene-altered seeds without a license. Do you know how to stop the wind? No, and neither do the farmers. Bill C474 is a bill that protects natural farmers by requiring that “an analysis of potential harm to export markets be conducted before the sale of any new genetically engineered seed is permitted.” There was nothing wrong with natural seeds, so why mess with nature? The chan-

ges to the seeds through genetic manipulation are permanent and create a dependency on foreign corporations like Monsanto that own most patents on gene-altered seeds. What was wrong with free unpatented seeds? The vote whether to include farmers on this crucial debate about farming was so close that if Ron Cannan and Stockwell Day had chosen to support an extension, then the natural farmers likely would have had their concerns heard before the final vote on Bill C474. Now Parliament will ‘blindly’ vote on the real issues that organic and conventional farmer’s face. It’s not too late to tell Stockwell Day and Ron Cannan that citizens do care about real food and natural farming and want them to support Bill C474.

patience, just to name a few. The decision to end it all while behind the wheel is sometimes spontaneous; like when a large truck or a bus comes into view there is no regard for the life of the oncoming driver. Most people don’t awaken in the morning thinking: Today I’m going to die in a car accident; but some do because it’s the easy way out—sad but true. I’ve lost a few trucking friends because of suicide drivers. Truck drivers are not guaranteed safety because of the size of their vehicle. During the cleanup of the carnage of a crash scene long lineups of impatient drivers occur, especially in highway crashes. After sometimes hours of being inconvenienced, the traffic is finally moving again. This is when road rage really shows, when some drivers who are now being overly cautious, inconvenience those who are trying to make up for lost time, and again make potentially deadly situations.

I think what should be done at a crash scene is this: Remove the survivors and the bodies of the deceased and get them the attention they need. Move the destroyed vehicles to the side of the road and then let the inconvenienced driving public loose. If any have aspirations of making up for lost time they will at least be viewing the wreckage on the way by and realize there are consequences for driving with a poor attitude. I would like to remind people that those memorials also serve as a reminder to pay attention to our driving habits and to remain vigilant and aware while driving because, as reality dictates, there are consequences. Instead of being in a rush when we drive by these memorials we should take the time to send up a prayer or think of the families whose lives were destroyed and remind ourselves this could be your family or friends.

Roadside memorials serve a good purpose To the editor: I agree with roadside memorials. The person or persons who died at that location, for whatever reason, were loved and cared for by family and friends who took the time to mark that place. The deceased should be recognized for that fact. As a professional driver for the past 45 years I have witnessed the aftermath of many vehicle crashes. I have seen blood running out of what was left of cars that only a few moments earlier had happy caring family members in them. I’ve witnessed medics trying to bring life back to dead bodies without success; survivors who were so shocked they didn’t know what hit them or where they were; innocent victims of some driver who wasn’t paying attention for whatever reason. There are many reasons why some people cause crashes—speed, alcohol, drugs, distractions, phones, suicidal tendencies, attitude, im-

Cherished memories.

We can creatively frame anything.

Don’t mess with our plan for medical services To the editor: Former prime minister Brian Mulroney spoke to chief executives in Montreal as reported in the Vancouver Sun, Oct. 21, 2010. His subject was health care. To quote Mr. Mulroney: “a serious adult discussion is called for and I believe a blue ribbon panel of medical and financial experts could provide a sensible framework

for the debate and for the decisions needed.” You will note we peasants were not included in that “blue ribbon panel.” He further suggests: “Canada needs to strike a better balance between the intrinsic value of universal medicare and the capacity of Canadians to fund the system through their taxes.” Amazing how Brian

Mulroney keeps coming out of the woodwork. I don’t think I would want Brian Mulroney anywhere near discussions about Medicare and I doubt I have to remind you of Brian Mulroney’s political history. He, along with Gordon Campbell, would privatize our medicare in an instant if they thought they could get away with it. Please, once again

Libraries serve us all well To the editor: I appreciated Mike Simmons cover story in the Sunday, Oct. 17 edition of the Capital News. Mike did a commendable job of portraying the changes, challenges and opportunities facing one of our most valuable but often overlooked community assets—the public libraries. More than a decade into the information age, the library has emerged as

the best gateway to the information highway; and librarians the best gate keepers. Providing them with sufficient resources, ensures every patron and every citizen, regardless of his or her station in life, access to bona fide versus bogus information. Our libraries help dispel ignorance and provide ideas and solutions to any problems—individual or collective. As our times and

demographics change, the messages from traditional institutions (churches, unions, political parties, government, etc.) may wear thin. I’m willing to bet that viable and workable solutions will always be found at the library. Gordon Wiebe, Friend of the Okanagan Regional Library, Westbank

let’s not be sucked in to believing these people who say we can’t sustain medicare. There is plenty of money—the gutless politicians must simply have the political will to tax the right groups. It just gives me the shivers to see Mr. Mulroney as a lead speaker and touching on medicare—it must be coincidental coming during the Halloween season.

P.S.: Does anyone remember Conversations on Health, by the B.C. Liberals, cost us $10 million and we heard squat about the results other than the people wanted medicare retained. Small wonder we have trouble trusting our politicians will do the right thing for their constituents. D.F. Breen, Westbank

New foundation’s focus on keeping kids safe

in the largest circulation class

Named by the CCNA as Best All Round Newspaper in Canada

A new foundation has been formed with the aim to help save lives and reduce injuries caused by unnecessary risks that young people take. Created within the Central Okanagan Foundation, the MSRH Communities Fund will raise donations to provide ongoing support of Smartrisk Foundation initiatives such as the No Regrets peer leadership program, now in its second year of existence in Central Okanagan schools. Through this foundation creation, an innovative risk intervention program called Mysaferidehome will be started with the assistance of a $10,000 donation from MMC Software Canada Corp. This program was created by MMC working in conjunction with the Aislinn Education and Safety Foundation. It will assist in safeguarding all age groups by saving lives, reducing injuries and risk-related crashes and minimizing the impact of social costs on society. This is a unique business whose purpose is to

enable a ‘priority service’ or ‘quick pick-up’ feature for local taxi service providers in order to deliver a 24/7 risk intervention program to participants. The MSRH program was developed recognizing that risk situations have no restrictions pertaining to age, gender, race, or the time of day.



At any moment someone, somewhere may be in a real or perceived risk situation who requires a safe ride home. Many times that individual may have a friend or a parent available to provide that ride. Or the individual may have the time to call a cab

and wait. But when you need to be somewhere, or when you need to remove yourself from somewhere quickly, that friend, parent or time may not be there, MSRH will be there to assist you. One of the leading local proponents behind these initiatives is Scott Walker, of Kelowna. His son, Andrew Walker, was tragically killed on July 2, 2009, while long boarding on Spiers Road. “That event changed our lives forever. From then on, I recognized I would do just about anything to prevent other parents, brothers and sisters from experiencing this loss and pain. It leaves you questioning the fabric of life, where our priorities are and what truly is important,” Walker said. The Walker family has previously assisted with bringing the No Regrets program to our area schools. “The peer leadership program No Regrets, was a ‘must have’ for our community as far as I was concerned. With generous support from family, friends and the general community we were for-

Two times per month, Rein plans and organizes the volunteers and activities with the help of a recreation therapist at Cottonwoods. The program is intended to encourage inter-generational communication and bring joy to both the residents and the volunteers. tunate to raise sufficient funds to bring the program to six of our area high schools,” Walker said. “We are now beginning our second year with the program and with continued support it is our goal to see the program continue. “Our hope is for the program to grow and its

messaging to become like a woven fibre of ourselves affecting our behaviour regarding risks. “Determining what is, and taking a smart risk is personal and our individual responsibility.” Walker said he learned of the Mysaferidehome initiative through a business acquaintance, and he

saw it as a natural complement to the No Regrets program. “I was intrigued by this as fundraising is an exhaustive pursuit and many businesses and individuals receive far more requests than they can support,” he said. “Life is full of choices and risk is a component of

all choices. “One cannot really walk in someone else’s shoes; it is a personal path. “It is our sincere wish to see the Smartrisk program expand across Canada and with our help, tragedy will not be a cause for a community to become involved.”

From a study done by UBC Okanagan associate professor Kenneth Carlaw, his findings did not even take into account local participation in games; only the nine to 12 per cent of tourists who come to the city, so financial off-shoots of the game are clearly much more. All and all, numbers were more than pleasing to the Hamilton family, owners of the Rockets. With this kind of impact, Kelowna should be well in the running for other major events in our city, perhaps even the 2013 Memorial Cup.

Protected sources stay protected


hen Daniel Leblanc was publishing stories in the Globe and Mail newspaper relating to the federal sponsorship scandal, he nicknamed one of his confidential sources “Ma Chouette” (‘My Sweetie’). Thanks to a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision upholding the confidentiality of the identity of media sources, “Ma Chouette” will remain unidentified, for now. The case being heard by our highest court pitted Montreal media company Le Groupe Polygone Editeurs Inc. against the Globe and Mail and Mr. Leblanc. Le Group Polygone is one of a number of companies from whom the Attorney General of Canada sought to recover millions of public dollars paid to them by the federal government under the sponsorship program. Leblanc, relying on his sources, wrote a series of articles about the sponsorship program, alleging the misuse and misdirection of federal funds. Le Groupe Polygone sought to force Mr. Leblanc to reveal the identity of his key source. The Quebec Superior Court ordered Leblanc to answer questions about his sources but Leblanc refused to identify the one he code-named, Ma Chouette. In its decision, the Supreme Court of Canada echoed its recent statements on the topic of freedom of the press and, in particular, the confidentiality of sources’ identity. It overturned the Quebec court’s order compelling Leblanc to answer questions about his sources. The Supreme Court

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


Robert Smithson of Canada reiterated that some form of legal protection for the confidential relationship between journalists and anonymous sources is required. The court drew an analogy between journalist-source privilege and police-informer privilege, both of which have their roots as judicially created rules of public policy. The court also emphasized the importance of whether the source’s identity is relevant in the context of the proceedings and whether relevant information can be obtained by means other than by revealing the identity of a confidential source. These requirements act as a buffer against fishing expeditions and unnecessary interference with the important work of the journalists. The court, while still not recognizing a blanket constitutional protection for the media, concluded that requiring a journalist to breach a confidentiality undertaking with an anonymous source should be done only as a last resort. It did, however, send the case back to the Quebec court to revisit its earlier order in light of this ruling. So, Ma Chouette may yet be publicly identified. Leblanc’s use of a confidential, code-named source is one of many instances in which anonymous whistle blowers have sought refuge in the arms of journalists. Perhaps the most famous example of such a

vestigative reports. Their source, a highly placed FBI official (with whom Woodward would occasionally meet late at night in an underground parking garage) was dubbed Deep Throat. Deep Throat was, 30 years later, revealed to have been FBI associate director Mark Felt. Woodward had repeatedly refused to identify Felt, stating that the anonymous source would only be identified after his own death or upon coming forward voluntarily (which Felt did, in 2005). In part as a result of Woodward and Bernstein’s (and Felt’s) efforts, Nixon eventually resigned from the presidency and key Watergate conspirators John Mitchell, Robert Haldeman and John Erlichman (and others) were convicted and imprisoned. Nixon escaped impeachment and criminal prosecution as a result of his resignation from the presidency and subsequent full and unconditional pardon by his successor, then vice-president Gerald Ford. It appears that the tradition of journalists’ protection of their confidential sources is alive and well in Canada, too. From Deep Throat to Ma Chouette, anonymous whistle blowers can take comfort that our highest court views the protection of their identity very seriously.

scenario was that of an American insider source code-named “Deep Throat.” He was partially responsible for the downfall of president Richard Nixon’s administration in the midst of the Watergate scandal. Deep Throat was the source relied upon by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein for critical leads. This information led to the revelation of the direct knowledge and involvement of the Nixon administration in the cover-up of the break-in to Democratic National Committee headquarters at Washington’s Watergate Hotel. In June 1972, when the Watergate break-in occurred, it wasn’t immediately apparent that anyone in the republican-held White House had any involvement. But this was no ordinary break-in, as the burglars were found to have been carrying a large amount of cash, a police radio scanner, cameras, a large supply of film, and electronic listening and recording devices. Over a period of a couple of years, Woodward and Bernstein and many other journalists searched for information identifying the conspirators behind the break-in and subsequent cover-up. The media coverage served to keep the matter in the public eye and to increase pressure on the conspirators behind the break-in and subsequent cover-up. Articles co-written by Woodward and Bernstein in the Washington Post contained insider information that was not available to other journalists and which closely replicated the FBI’s own in-

Venture Okanagan held its first investor forum last Thursday, giving five aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a room of more than 80 potential investors and supporters. Venture Okanagan is SIFE (Students In Free Enterprise) Okanagan’s latest business project— an angel investor forum aimed at introducing startup entrepreneurs to early stage investors and mentors who can help them commercialize their ideas. “SIFE wanted to give aspiring entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their ideas to the community,” said Kyleen Myrah, faculty mentor for SIFE. “Many


THE FIRSTinvestor forum put on by Venture Okanagan attracted about 80 people. golden ideas have fallen through the cracks and SIFE created this project to address the issue.” Five entrepreneurs pitched products and services that ranged from Von Mynheer Automotive’s prototype of an electric car to Vampt Beverage Corp’s new cooler. “Not only did the presentations look sharp, but the deals presented were very promising,” said Steve Watson, professor in the Okanagan School of Business and chair of the investment review committee for Venture Okanagan. “Prior to showcasing their ideas at the fo-

rum the entrepreneurs had a chance to gain feedback and advice from SIFE, Okanagan College faculty and other mentors and it was great to see them make use of it.” “I am happy with what we achieved in the time we had and am keen to find out if any investors materialize from this, as networking can take time,” said Andrew Mynheer, of Von Mynheer Automotive. “I am pleased that we have made it this far and I think the car received great acclaim, which we are very satisfied with.” Learn more at www.

the feelings about entrepreneurial dreaming in a way that maybe you can feel it too, what it means to dream an enterprise into existence? Not a business, mind you, not a practice, but an enterprise— a new venture creation. And make no mistake, an entrepreneur passionately wishes to touch many people with his or her new venture in such a profound brilliant way that people are drawn to it, excited by it to the point that maybe, just maybe, the venture purpose can translate into a leadership avenue in what it has chosen to do. Every once in awhile in my travels, I come across this different kind of entrepreneur, a person who dreams bigger than their background, education and experience suggests they can. Not to say these people experience failure or get discouraged, but they are the kind of entrepreneur who simply creates another dream when their current dream dissolves. I also do not mean this in a negative sense, but that they do not allow discouragement nor disappointment to crush them. If these qualities and

Joel Young characteristics describe you, then I would like to ask you a few questions this week. Have you identified what your dreams are by writing them down? Are you living out your dreams? Perhaps your entrepreneurial dream is to be financially independent or to build a successful new venture. Maybe creating a new venture means to you where you can determine your schedule or how much time you work this month. What might be keeping you from dreaming bigger than you do now? Whatever your dream and regardless of how well developed, I truly believe that most successful entrepreneurial dreamers go through some form of a process unique to themselves. The first milestone seems to be the very essence of daring to dream and is the realization I

suppose that they have the ability to dream. Yes I know, everyone dreams, but successful entrepreneurs keep dreaming even when everyone and everything is out to destroy it. The normal person may easily give up but the entrepreneur keeps going like the Ever-Ready bunny, plugging along. One you have found your new dream, the successful entrepreneur always, always, always realizes that they must talk about it, think about it, plan for it and eventually define it for the dream to truly formulate and take a life of its own. Do you have a dream? Do you ever think about writing it down in as much detail as possible? Revise it? Have others critique it? Analyze it until you have crossed the “bridge of reality” that convinces you that maybe you are on the verge of a realistic opportunity for yourself. And if a setback or crisis occurs, the successful entrepreneurs may grieve for a short while, but they then examine what went wrong and apply what they’ve learned going forward. I personally love that concept of rising up again from the ashes of temporary defeat only to rise higher than before. You must take positive action steps to begin implementing and realizing your entrepreneurial dream. Once you are on your way to entrepreneurial success through the development of your dream, you must learn how to most effectively channel your energy and resources so they produce they greatest return. Our Okanagan Valley has a wonderful network of helpful resources to assist you to evaluate and screen your dream. They can hold you accountable for defining, developing and directing your entrepreneurial dream. A short time ago, we put into practice an Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society where likeminded entrepreneurs have a playground to share their joys and trials with their fellow dreamers. One of the goals of this column is to hopefully help you find the road to your entrepreneurial dream machine, encourage you to make it work and embrace the joy of a successful journey.



Back to the basics of accounting


ith the wide spread use of computers and accounting programs these days, we tend to lose sight of the basic technique of what we do as accountants that the computers have somewhat automated. I’d like to discuss some basic accounting concepts that accountants and bookkeepers use when compiling data. The first is double entry accounting, or double entry bookkeeping. Back in the 15th century when money first evolved, or perhaps greed first evolved, it became necessary to keep records of what was sold to whom and who owed whom money so that the taxes could be paid to the aristocrats of the time. There were many problems with keeping the books in balance, so the system of double entry bookkeeping was developed. What that means is that every transaction must be coded to two accounts. One of those accounts must be a debit and the other must be a credit. For example, ignoring taxes, if you purchase paper for your business using your debit card, if you were using a manual system the entry would be a debit to office expense and a credit to the bank account. The check to make sure that the double entry bookkeeping system was working is the formula of Assets - Liabilities + Equity. Income is included in Equity and after a while as transactions became more numerous and more complex a separate Income Statement was created and the total of that statement is rolled up into the Equity section of the balance sheet. The next ‘basic’ is the cash basis versus the accrual basis of accounting. The Canada Revenue Agency only allows farms and some special corporations to keep their records on the cash basis. What the cash basis of account-

ing means is that you only record an item when you have actually paid for or received the cash from that item. The accrual Gabriele basis of accounting, Banka on the other hand is date driven. When using this method you need to record all sales and all expenditures in a particular period whether you have exchanged cash in the transaction or not. This is the approved method for keeping records in order to calculate your tax liability. The accrual method supports the matching of income with expenditures by the use of dates. The tax year cut-off date for a sole proprietorship would be from Jan.1 to Dec. 31. In order to have accurate financial statements, no items dated after Dec. 31 should be posted in the current period. Those items should be posted into the next period, conversely the next period should not have any items posted to it that belonged to the prior period. A corporation’s period is their fiscal period which is a 52-week period not necessarily coinciding with the calendar year. The use of the accrual method may involve journalizing items that may not have a cash component, which is why what your ‘bottom line’ does not equal what is in your bank account. This is what is called the ‘Accounting Flow’ versus the ‘Cash Flow.’. In the balance sheet we have some Control Accounts that are Accounts Receivable, Inventory and Accounts Payable. These accounts only hold the totals of the details recorded in their respective subledgers. A subledger is a detailed listing of accounts. I vividly remember when these subledgers were all on big cardboard cards. When you sold something to a customer, you would take out their card and record the sale and then when the customer paid, then you


would take out that same card and post the receipt of the payment. At the end of every month you would need to total up all the balances on the cards and make sure that it totaled to the balance shown in the Accounts Receivable account on the Balance sheet. Accounts Payable worked like Accounts Receivable except in reverse tracking what you owed to your suppliers. Inventory was another ‘card’ system that required periodic checks of stock against the cards to make sure that the system was still accurate which most times it wouldn’t be. There was also the requirement for inventory counts several times a year to keep the records as accurate as possible. Now with computers all this is seamless, you go into your customer screen and pick a customer, open an invoice template and create the invoice. When posting this invoice it automatically updates the Account Receivable Control account as well as the Inventory Control Account if inventory was involved in the sale. For Accounts Payable, the same process is followed to record a purchase. Both the Accounts Payable and Receivable systems have the ability to record payments and receipt of payments. Usually the Inventory module is only updated by the system except for adjustments to the actual inventory counts or costing. We certainly have come a long way in the world of accounting. The aspect of ‘human’ error that occurred frequently has been greatly reduced because you no longer have to post an entry three or four times from one manual system to another. Now we have computer errors which are usually programming related and replicated throughout the system.

Kings of Leon hit heights after exposure opening for U2 KINGS OF LEON: COME AROUND SUNDOWN (RCA)

Until their last album, 2008’s Only By Night, The Kings Of Leon were mostly ignored by radio and the mass market. But the Tennessee-based Followill clan oddly struck it big in the U.K. where they had hits that were ignored by North American ears and only blues rock cognoscente even knew who the band were. So a couple of years ago KOL scored a big breakthrough when they were selected as the opening act for the U2 concerts worldwide. The result was KOL got discovered, selling platinum in a dozen countries on the strength of their two huge hits Use Somebody and Sex On Fire. I didn’t think their last album would put them over the top and like many I miscalculat-

ed KOL’s huge advancement. This new album is the No.1 selling disc in Canada and they have scored another hit with the arena rock, U2-styled single Radioactive. In fact, most of the songs on Come Around Sundown aim for that big arena rock sound except for the garage/glam song Mary and the rootsy bush party homage on Back Down South. Newer fans of The Kings Of Leon will like this arena rock album but for fans of earlier arty blues rock KOL offer a two-CD Deluxe set that includes a three-song EP with a remix of Radioactive and a couple of tunes that are much more experimental. Look for Pyro and Radioactive to equal the massive success of their previous album’s two landmark hits. B



After fronting the artpop Beatnigs and the hip hop/rap band The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy, Michael Franti has carved a nice niche for himself as a solo artist. In his three recording incarnations Franti has only scored one hit and that was only last year with Say Hey (I Love You) but that has set him up for greater exposure and this new release, The Sound Of Sunshine, is his

best selling new album to date with a top five placement in the rock charts. This disc was recorded on the road (opening for John Mayer) and in hotels as well as at home. The low-tech campfire appeal makes one think of Jack Johnson but Franti is more breezy and happy sounding on this summery, sunshiny CD. Franti barely survived a burst appendix last year and perhaps this has given him a new slant on life where many of these songs are carpe diem songs about enjoying sim-

ple pleasures. There are also a lot of cool songs. Check out the beach reggae of Shake It with the immortal Jamaican rhythm tag team of Sly & Robbie, the buoyant world beat inflections of Hey Hey Hey, and the garage demo-like The Thing That Helps Me Get Through. A fun and friendly listen that also has its serious side. B


It is only too obvious from the title that this is the fifth edition of tin pan alley and popular songs from yesteryear that makes up the Great American Songbook. Stewart has always subtitled these ‘volumes’ with a popular hit song such as It Had To Be You and Stardust so this new

one carries on with the secondary moniker of Fly Me To The Moon. I haven’t been a big fan of Stewarts perfunctory readings in the past but Vol. 5 is actually pretty good and well worth a listen. All the songs run with a template of verses and choruses with one short horn solo such as sax, flugelhorn, trombone and the occasional flute to round out the sound. But what makes this a winning album is Stewart sounds so relaxed and See Mitchell B8

MIRIAM CUNHA, with her Mayan Tzolkin Calendar, will help you prepare for a change in how we relate to time, rather than the end of time which has been predicted for Dec. 21, 2012. SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS

Jose Arguelles, but several scholars of the era supported this form of interpretation, which states that cataclysmic events for the earth will begin on Dec. 21, 2012. The interpretation led to last year’s blockbuster movie 2012, starring John Cusak, and is already spawning plans for 2012 parties all over the world in a similar vein to the Year 2000 parties. One very popular idea making the rounds at the moment is a plan an endof-days entertainment event and it’s got some of this city’s arts and entertainment heavy hitters abuzz on Facebook. “We may not share in these doomsday beliefs but, in the spirit of the band that played on as the Titanic sank, we feel,that if we are wrong and the world is about to end, then there’s nothing we’d rather be doing than

partying with the ones we love in the midst of one of the greatest entertainment events ever organized,” states Chad Zahara in a Facebook post for the End of Days Festival, tentatively organized for Dec. 21, 2012. A website has been organized for this event ( which appears to be the end-of-days event to end all others. The website notes there are only 778 days to go

to the party, as of publication date, so for those just contemplating what to do for this coming holiday season it may be time to broaden the horizons and look further ahead in time.

For the Kamloops RCMP, it cannot be a pretty site. Look up “Kelowna” and “2012” online and one of the first hits is a Kamloops-area bushparty gone viral—organized sometime last summer, a full year and a half before believers in the 1970s New Age philosophy of Mayanism say the world is scheduled to end. For a student of Mayan history, like East Kelowna resident Miriam Cunha, these doomsday kooks can expect their biggest problem come party time will be a visit from said RCMP. “There’s going to be much more beyond 2012,” Cunha assures us. She is organizing a spiritual preparation for 2012 at the downtown Kelowna public library. “Are you ready for 2012?” her advert reads, noting in a brief description the work she thinks is proper preparation for the series of changes the Mayan Tzolkin Calendar predicts that can be managed through a three-hour workshop focused on achieving life balance. Rather than a cataclysmic end-of-days scenario, Cunha thinks 2012 will bring an alignment of our solar system which will force time to take a new form. People will choose a different plane of existence as a result of the change, which she believes is already underway. “Mayans consider time as not linear but

more of a 3D concept— something that is hard for us to grasp,” she said. “It’s like several waves. Like a fractal. And what is already happening is that we’re getting into a smaller part of this spiral wave of time so we think things are accelerating.” When you look at the clock and it’s 1 p.m. and then next moment it’s 2 p.m., this is an indication our time and space are changing, says Cunha. Born in Guatemala and raised in Brazil, Cunha is part Mayan and has extensive training in New Age, Mayan, and alternative medicines and philosophies. She believes preparing for 2012 involves a lot of the same knowledge you might get from a rec centre nutrition class. It’s about honing in on your own essence and harnessing the knowledge to put yourself on the best possible plane of existence. “The choices of food you make change your levels of vibration,” she said. “So you’ve heard of white sugar being a drug?…Well, it blocks your body from getting in touch with higher vibration energies and other levels of evolution.” By knowing one’s energy, and where on the Mayan calendar one is born, it is possible to determine what skills and weaknesses one has and prepare for a better spiritual evolution, she believes. This take on 2012 was made popular in the 1980s-era book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology, by exciting

Temporary loss of liquor license a learning experience Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken me this long to recover from BreakOut Westâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what a whirlwind of a weekend it was! Downtown Kelowna was alive like I have never seen it before. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that anyone who took part in the BreakOut West festival agrees with me when I say that Kelowna has needed something like this for a long time. I think that the event sparked peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in a cultural scene that has been seemingly non-existent at times. I would like to say a quick thank you to everyone who participated in making the weekend such a success. From the venues, to the sponsors, to the volunteers, and all the attendeesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thank you so much! I think that Kelowna might start to see more events like BreakOut West pop up in the near future. Although my whole world was BreakOut West for a while, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to continue on with the real worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;back to work at Habitat. There has been a large amount of controversy

surrounding the liquor license suspensions that both Habitat and Cush received in the past few weeks, especially since the venues were suspended during BreakOut West (probably the busiest weekend of the year). I received and picked up on a bunch of negative feedback from the general public in regards to the suspensions. Habitat has seen its share of struggles and this is just another step that the venue needs to make in order to comply with the Liquor Control and Licensing Board. It is unfortunate about the timing of the suspension, but I believe that it has also opened a few doors for us. Something that BreakOut West reminded us, at Habitat, about was that people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to our venue to drinkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they come to see live music or to attend a special event. It was so great to see Habitat packed throughout the entire BreakOut West weekend. Although we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to sell liquor, the attendees didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even seem fazed because they were there to see the music. Habitat has always been a unique space, and knowing that we can still

Mitchell from B6 comfortable singing these songs most fans of older music know by heart. I am guessing Stewart expects to be slagged by critics again for his halfassed performances just like in the past so he has said to himself â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to hell with itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and he wings it with an uncommon but amiable naturalness that works nicely. Also, the tempo here is often swinging with mid-speed songs and only a rare ballad and the tunes are kept short with many under three minutes.

Check out the campy Love Me Or Leave Me, the lope-along That Old Black Magic and the snappy Beyond The Sea, while his understated Moon River sounds lovely with simple accordion backdrop. Much better than expected and note that there is a two-CD Deluxe Edition with six additional songs. C+

try album and, like its predecessor, hit No.1 on the C&W charts. His first country album logged four hits and I look for this sophomore CD to at least equal that. If you liked Ruckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first country release then you will also like this new one that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change any of the formula for success. Rucker solidifies his country leanings where every single song features banjo, fiddle, mandolin and steel guitar while Rucker lets producer Frank Rogers polish up a very sleek and polished sound. Rucker steps out for a country rocker with guitarist extraordinaire and superstar Brad Paisley on I Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Care. Meanwhile, all the songs bear a 2010 vintage with Rucker co-writing every song. My only minor complaint is that Rucker seems to be pushing a little too hard on creating his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;southernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roots...(to prove he belongs?) with the CD title and songs like Southern State Of Mind and the small town paean In A Big Way where he name drops George Jones alongside Charlie Pride. For Rucker it is country & southern not country & western. A likeable and uncomplicated album. C+

October 26, 1928 ~ October 28, 2010. With great sadness we announce the passing of our dear Stan after fighting cancer so valiantly. Stan was a devoted husband to Joyce for 60 years, a father, grandfather, greatgrandfather and a great-great grandfather. Stan leaves to mourn his passing his loving wife, Joyce; his three children, Shirley Coupal (Larry), Barry Shiels (Heather), Valerie Stobbe; his grandchildren, Natasha Shiels, Tanya Mead, Robert Coupal (Tara), Mark Shiels (Cassidy), Keith Shiels (Robyn), Carley Melanson and Kimberley Ramage; plus eleven great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. Stan joins his two grandchildren, Shara-Lee Coupal Frankling and Brent Melanson; his parents Robert and Alice Shiels; his sister Hazel; and brothers Raymond, Earl, and Keith. He also leaves to mourn his passing brother-in-laws, sister-in-laws; countless nieces and nephews; a large extended family and many friends. Stan will be especially missed by his great-grandbabies, Brooklyn and Jerzie Melanson; his brothers Wilfred and Harold; his dear friends Lillian and Glenn Mooney; Florence Law; Eldon Hnylycia; Phil Seldon and many others! Stan was born in Eldersley, SK and raised near Bjorkdale, SK. Stan and Joyce married and moved to Prince George in 1951 where they raised their children until moving to Kelowna in 1973. Stan worked in the logging industry and then in natural gas and oil pipeline. He had many fond memories of his working years and enjoyed all the stories his son Barry related about pipeline jobs after he retired. Stan was known as ‘Stan the Man’ for his can do attitude and his willingness to try to fix anything and take on any job. After moving into Sunrise Village he was known as ‘Mr. Fix-It’ because he helped so many neighbours. Stan always had a twinkle in his eye and loved to pull something over on a person. He loved to garden, read and spend time with his family, especially the little ones. Please join the family in celebrating Stan’s life on: Saturday, November 6, 2010 at St. Aiden’s Anglican Church at 1 p.m. 380 Leathead Road, Rutland.

July 20, 1944 - October 30, 2010 With so much sorrow we announce the passing of Phil on Saturday, October 30th, 2010 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband and best friend to Anne Michiko Hoover (nee Baba) for 33 years. Phil fought with an incredible quiet strength for 12 years - put so eloquently in his own words, he was “a tough old bugger.” Through all the surgeries, chemo and radiation, time and time again he held his head high with determination that the disease would not beat him. His legacy to his children wasn’t words or possessions, but an unspoken treasure, the treasure of his example as a man and as a father. Pre-deceased by his sister Marnie (age 3), his mother Peg and his father Len. Phil leaves behind his wife Anne, daughters Shannon (Farshad) and Michelle (Rafie), grandson Austin, brother Alan (Leni) and many nieces and nephews. Among the many friends and loved ones who supported us, we especially want to thank extended family Ray (Shig) Baba and Carolyn (Dee) Baba, friends Roger and Pam Cousins, Sheila and Jack Ueda and Sherrill Fix. Through his journey there have been numerous amazing doctors and medical teams: Phil especially would want to thank Doctors Taylor, Erasmus, Leco and Pollock. A celebration of Phil’s life will take place this Saturday, November 6, 2010 at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Rd, Kelowna at 10 AM. Memorial Donations can be made to Kelowna General Hospital, Palliative Care Program, 2268 Pandosy Street, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9Z9 or the Cancer Center for the Southern Interior, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 5L3. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting, 250-860-7077.

ple visited the airport to attend the Hot Suns Destinations event to talk with representatives from airlines, vacation rentals and travel agencies about sun holidays in Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean. “This is the second year we have hosted this type of information event at YLW,” said airport director Sam Samaddar. “Between the positive feedback we received from attendees and our participating partners and the sheer number of people who attended, we will most definitely organize another event again next year.” With a minimum $5 donation, visitors to the Oct. 29 event had their name entered in a draw to win a vacation package or travel voucher with all proceeds provided to Hope Air. Hope Air is a national charity that provides free flights to people in financial need who are required to fly for vital (non-emergency) medical care. Since January, Hope Air has arranged for 322 flights from Kelowna International Airport to medical facilities in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto. More than $3,380 was collected at the Hot Suns Destinations event and provided to Hope Air. “The funds contributed by people at the event is equivalent to 27 flights,” said Dennis Kiffiak, director of development for Hope Air. “Hope Air very much appreciates the support of the Kelowna International Airport and everyone who attended. “By being here, we were able to share more about Hope Air services.” The event also featured a number of travel contests prizes. The winners were: • All-inclusive trip for two to Royal Decameron Resort, Puerto Vallarta Mexico courtesy of Nolitours/ Transat Holidays and free airport parking byYLW— Jack Pardue, Kelowna • Airfare to any Mexican or Caribbean destination by Air Canada Vacations—Carol Tatham, Kelowna • Airfare for two anywhere WestJet flies—Una Mack, Kelowna • One of three $100 travel vouchers by Capri Travel—Mike Tattersall, Peachland; Art Fester, Kelowna; Sylvia Dow, Kelowna.
