Vaisakhi Parade reflects Sikh growth Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

In a colourful parade augmented by exotic tastes and music, Kelowna’s maturing cultural profile will be on display this weekend. The Okanagan Sikh community is putting on its first Vaisakhi parade Saturday, mirroring activities that have traditionally rolled out in larger urban hubs. “The Sikh population has been growing,” said Parmjit Patara, saying there’s 4,000 to 5,000 Sikh families who now call the valley home. “And since we built the new temple, there’s been a demand—people were asking if we are going to have a Vaisakhi parade. So, we decided we’d do this.” Vaisakhi is one of the most significant holidays in the Sikh calendar, remarkable in a religious context, as it’s when the Sikhs gained a distinct identity, said Patara. It also marks the harvest of winter crops in the Punjab region and the start See Growth A8

Working to keep pine beetle infestation at bay Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

The roar of a chainsaw sounds much more final than a tiny beetle killing a mature pine tree—but the effect is the same. And both will continue to fall the Central Okanagan’s native pine trees for the foreseeable future, according to authorities around the region. Blair Stewart, the City of

Kelowna’s urban forest technician, predicts local trees will be hard hit this year, despite the long, late, cool spring which could delay the first flight of mountain pine beetles. In fact, there could be some bad years ahead as far as the infestation of beetles is concerned, he believes. And with the province not providing any financial assistance this year, municipalities

are on their own in trying to deal with it, he added. Fortunately, Stewart said Kelowna is in a better situation than some, with natural breaks provided by Okanagan Lake and grasslands on some of its boundaries that help prevent beetle outbreaks and protect the city from fire once trees die from beetle infestation and become tinder dry. While Stewart has seen

massive majestic old pines in places like Knox Mountain Park killed by the mountain pine and western pine beetles, he remains hopeful some of the old pine trees in the city’s landscape can be saved. Kelowna has been very proactive in removing infested trees from city-owned land before the current year’s flight of beetles has a chance to exit, infesting nearby live trees.

Within the next half dozen years, it’s expected that the current high cycle of pine beetles in this province will end, simply due to a lack of remaining pine trees for them to complete their life cycle in, Stewart noted. Nick Arkle, a partner in Gorman Brothers Lumber in West Kelowna, says his staff are now noticing pine beetle damSee Beetle A4

Museum display mixes art and history Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

There is a corner of the Okanagan Heritage Museum where the staff always seem to set up the interactive part of their displays. Even if it’s by happenstance, they haven’t broken the mould with the latest exhibit, The Memory Project: Art and Stories of The Second World War, positioning an interesting place to compose handwritten notes to servicemen and women in that same back corner. Yet this time, the entire collection is really an interactive display, a uniquely engaging approach to telling a story that most of us think we know—the story of the Second World War. “These are really the human stories of what someone experienced in the day-to-day,” explained Davida Aronovitch, communications coordinator of The Historica-Dominion Institute. “It really is about those smaller stories and vignettes.” Aronovitch represents the team which has been diligently collecting veterans’ stories and posting them on an online archive for anyone to access, since September 2009. The stories run the

gauntlet of those involved in the war, from gunners on the front-lines to the women who handled supplies, and have given new life to the dates and timelines and critical facts taught in Canadian schools. “It’s not about their actual duties as military personnel. It’s about their memories, and their memories often have nothing to do with the actual fighting,” said Patti Kilback, with the Okanagan Heritage Museum. “It’s about the food, and the clothes and the touching friendships they made.” But showcasing those oral histories required a visual component, so The Memory Project posted a call to artists. The resulting display brings snippets of the online archive of veteran’s testimonials to life via pieces of artwork which young and local artists, like potter Bridget Fairbank, have created by listening to the veterans’ tales. “It is interesting how the artists are asked to just look at the website, listen to the different oral histories…and something will catch them,” said Kilback. “Sometimes it’s just a phrase or something that really grabs them and just makes them have all these images and memories of their own.”

In Fairbank’s case, for example, the Nelsonbased potter found Hubert Lalonde’s testimonial hit home, about the importance of food for him as he battled in Europe. At one point, Lalonde said he went four days without any rations and then he also lost his mess tin to a bullet. The only alternative was a tin can and the recording goes on to describe how he put that can to good use. “The cook, he poured hot water in there a couple of times to rinse it out and I said, fill it up. That’s how I ate my food that night because they couldn’t get me a mess tin,” Lalonde recalled. Fairbank’s display is of a grouping of pottery mess tins, a plate-type object with a whole through it and snippets of the story inscribed on the side. Just down the way, Capital News photographer Sean Connor has given the project a stylized photograph he took at Brettville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery, a spot he wound up in while tracing his father’s footsteps during the war. Some 2,872 Canadians are buried in the cemetery, along with much of Connor’s father’s unit. He flipped through the oral histories online and

He was in Italy and he was in a tank and one of his crew members was killed when he was hit,” said Connor. Taylor’s story describes a horrific battle in which he was paralyzed from the waist down and the other soldier he was with was killed. “He knocked it out

and said, ‘I got him sir.’ And those were his last words because an antitank gun got us right after that and our tank went up in flames,” Taylor says on the recording. There are more than 1,800 such oral histories online; over 2000 have been collected and the project’s funding was just renewed in March. A painting at the back of the display serves as a reminder of just how important the collection is for future generations. Local artist Rena War-

ren has painted a colourful depiction of famous local artist Mary Bull, who passed away last year. Bull was a nurse in the war and over tea had told Warren some interesting tales of flirting with the servicemen. But she also mentioned how deeply it impacted her, to hold a young soldier’s hand as he lay dying and how she carried that memory with her for the rest of her life. “To us it’s very poignant…This isn’t a story we were able to capture, but

this painting, which is a portrait of her at two different points in her life, as a storyteller of her history in the service and of herself as a young woman in the service, is another kind of tribute,” said Aronovitch. The grand opening for the exhibit runs this Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Okanagan Heritage Museum. Admission is by donation. The exhibition will be in the museum until the end of November.


Arts and culture summit seeks to marry business and cultural services Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

On Friday morning, the business and arts communities will meet with an expert in mobilizing communities in an attempt to spur economic and cultural growth. Dubbed the Kelowna Arts and Culture Summit, the city’s cultur-


al crew have tapped Paul Born to take the lead on a two-day workshop intended to brainstorm some concrete projects citizens from both campus can come together on. “You never want to prejudge outcomes too much when you’re bringing people together to have their own dialogue. But it might be just to help them realize that maybe business and

culture are not as different as they may think,” said Sandra Kochan, with the City of Kelowna cultural services. Last year, the municipality conducted extensive consultations to develop a cultural plan and discovered the business and arts communities did not appear to be connected enough to know how they might work together to build a more vibrant, and profitable

community. Kochan said she is hoping the sessions will yield some tangible ideas that people within the community are willing to sign on to champion. Born has worked as a motivational speaker and facilitator all over the world and was tapped to bring an approach which would resonate with the business community as much as it

does with the cultural sector. In addition to leading the Tamarack Institute in Waterloo, Born holds a masters degree in leadership, is an author and has been recognized with awards from the Conference Board of Canada, Imagine Canada and the Governor General of Canada.

age where there has never been any in the past— even in areas where they thought the trees might be safe because of elevation or buffer zones around. “It’s lucky we have a multi-species forest. Much of what is visible on the hills around the valley is predominantly Douglas fir, so it won’t be as impacted,” he commented. Stacey Harding, parks supervisor for the District of West Kelowna, says they’ve already completed 19 projects this year in parks and district-owned land, removing beetle infested pines. Infestation on the Westside has been spotty and random, rather than moving in like a wave, as had been expected, noted Harding. Removal of beetle-infested wood is just one component of the district’s wildfire fuel reduction program, for which they still have some funds from a Union of B.C. Municipalities grant, but no private land can be included, he said. The district’s west

and northern boundaries are where the most pressure from the infestation is coming from, so work is being done in the Rose Valley area, Mount Boucherie and the boundaries of Glen Canyon, said Harding. Surrounding municipalities should be glad the district has been proactive about acquiring grant money to do this work, because the beetle doesn’t recognize political boundaries, he noted. He also commended the public for staying clear and being respectful of workers in parks and on public land. The regional district is doing work in Glen Canyon Regional Park adjacent to downtown West Kelowna, and is working on plans for Rose Valley and Upper Glen Canyon Regional Parks, with the help of a fuel management grant from the UBCM. Work has already been done in Mission Creek and Glen Canyon Regional Parks, according to Bruce Smith, spokesman for the Central Okanagan Regional District. Mountain pine beetle


A FORESTRY work crew uses a chipper to clean up cut wood as part of a fuel modification and pine beetle project in West Kelowna. attacks all species of pine trees, but western pine beetle only attacks ponderosa pine. Following a ‘flight’ in early summer, the beetles attack pines nearby, depending on wind conditions, burrowing under the bark and interrupting the flow of sap up the tree. By emitting an aggregation pheromone, they will work together to mass attack a tree and overcome its natural defence of ‘pitching out’ the invaders with a gob of pitch, visible on the outside bark of the tree. That pitch tube is an indicator of trees which have been invaded by the beetle, even if the trees haven’t yet turned red and died. A blue stain fungus carried by the bee-

tle is partly to blame for the tree’s death, which occurs within a year of infestation. One way to combat an infestation is use of a verbenone pouch containing an anti-aggregation pheromone, that tells flying beetles this tree is already full and there’s no room for more. Forestry consultant Don Fowler says the best time to nail a pouch to your tree is prior to the first flight of the year, likely in early July. He emphasizes the most important thing property owners can do is identify trees that have been attacked and remove them before summer, and properly dispose of them to prevent the spread of beetles. There is a cost to de-

posit tree trunks more than 20 centimetres in diameter, and loads of tree debris of more than 250 kilograms in weight at the Glenmore Landfill. But it’s not always possible to burn infested trees, and by disposing of them on the property or elsewhere, the beetles will fly and infest new trees. All property owners are urged to remove and properly dispose of infested trees to help prevent spread of the beetle. Once dead, those also present a safety hazard, noted Stewart.

Pedestrian struck by motorist Cheryl Weirda STAFF REPORTER

A 59-year-old woman died after being hit by a car while trying to cross the road Monday night, police say. Around 6:20 p.m., RCMP say a woman was crossing Bernard Avenue at Burtch Road—an intersection governed by a traf-

fic light—when she was hit by a Honda Civic, driven by a 49-year-old woman. That car had been in the process of turning left from Burtch Road onto Bernard Avenue when it made contact with the 59year-old pedestrian, police say. “The 59-year-old female was transported to

Kelowna General Hospital by ambulance, where she succumbed to her injuries a short time later,” said Staff Sgt. John Jordan. Her name is not being released at the request of her family. Police say alcohol was not a factor in the crash. “The investigation is ongoing and no charg-

The tomato is the fruit of a vine native to South America where, historically, it was thought to be poisonous. Some tomato advocates, however, claimed the fruit had aphrodisiac powers and, in fact, the French called them pommes d’amour, meaning “love apples.” Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A,B & C, potassium and iron. They have as much fibre as a slice of whole-wheat bread and only 35 calories.

Manslaughter conviction draws ‘unique’ jail sentence Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

A Kelowna judge has decided to veer outside the typical sentencing range for manslaughter, saying the “unique” facts of the case warrant a shorter jail sentence for Blake Nahachewski. Nahachewski, who pleaded guilty to the July 2008 manslaughter of Brian Schaefer back in December, was handed 30 months in jail at his sentencing hearing Tuesday afternoon. After credit for time served, he has an additional eight months in custody to serve. Before imposing sentence, Judge Gale Sinclair noted that he knew whatever he decided would be too little for Schaefer’s family and too much for Nahachewski and that anything he did would not bring Schaefer back. He said he had to impose a sentence based in law and later said he was “satisfied the unique facts

take this case outside the so-called usual (sentencing) range of four to six years.” There is no minimum sentence for manslaughter and the maximum is life in prison. The events leading up to Schaefer’s death began around 2 a.m. on July 4, 2008, when an argument between Schaefer and Nahachewski broke out over a picture of a girl they both knew. That argument culminated in Nahachewski assaulting the 55-year-old inside his Gellatly Road home. The court heard that Schaefer, who was very drunk, began calling Nahachewski names and became physically aggressive with him. “The accused exercised restraint at first,” said Sinclair. However, he later struck at Schaefer, hitting him in the head and at least one time in the ribs, later telling another person at the property that

night that Schaefer was going to have “sore ribs” in the morning. It turns out four of Schaefer’s ribs were broken and that led to the rupturing of his spleen. Schaefer, however, didn’t go to see medical professionals until some 36 hours later, and then refused treatment by emergency room staff. He returned home against medical advice. Had he received treatment then, a pathologist suggested, Schaefer would likely have recovered from his injuries. However, he didn’t get treatment until July 8, when he returned to hospital in hemorrhagic shock. His spleen was removed, but after the surgery Schaefer contracted pneumonia and eventually died of complications from the surgery on July 27. And while Schaefer didn’t get medical treatment until days later, that doesn’t remove the legal culpability of Nahachews-

ki for the assault that led to Schaefer’s death, said Crown counsel Colin Forsyth. The young man, who was 23 at the time of Schaefer’s assault, had a troubled childhood, suffering abuse at the hands of a step-father around the age of 5 and was eventually kicked out of the family home at 12 after he was accused of stealing an item he hadn’t actually taken. And while he has amassed a criminal record in his adult life, he had no convictions for violence prior to this manslaughter case. That, along with Nahachewski’s remorse, prompted defence lawyer Dave Johnson to ask for time already served— which he calculated at either 25 or 27 months— plus one day. “He’s spent enough

time in jail on the matter,” said Johnson. Sinclair, however, didn’t agree, sentencing Nahachewski to 30 months, as the Crown requested. He did give Nahachewski double credit for the 11 months he served between his arrest in November 2008 and release on bail in October, 2009. He declined to give Nahachewski credit for time served since his arrest on another matter in January nor for the 84 days he spent in custody after missing a court date, as defence requested. “To do so would reward him for being a noshow at his scheduled preliminary hearing,” said Sinclair. Nahachewski has eight months remaining on his sentence after the judge credited him for part of his time in custody.

He must also submit a sample of his DNA and is subject to a lifetime fire-

arms ban, the judge ruled.

The man accused of killing and robbing Brittney Lee Irving last year will have to wait until 2012 for his preliminary hearing. At a court date on Monday, the court confirmed an eight-day hearing had been scheduled to hear the case against Joelon Verma to determine if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial. Verma was arrested last June, about a month after Irving’s body was located at an undisclosed location. Irving, 24, was last seen alive by her family a year ago today (April 6) and was last known to be heading out to meet someone to sell him a “large

quantity” of marijuana. She was reported missing April 7, 2010, the same day her SUV was found abandoned on Philpott Road. Verma’s preliminary hearing is scheduled to get underway on Jan. 3, 2012.


Police are asking witnesses to come forward after two cases of a man exposing himself were reported over the weekend. The first incident happened around 6:50 p.m. on Saturday as a woman in her early 20s was running at the Apple Bowl track.

A man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants exposed himself to the woman, said Sgt. Craig Andrichuk. Patrols by police failed to turn up the suspect. Then, at 10 p.m., Orchard Park Mall security staff reported seeing, on security cameras, a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark sweat pants exposing himself in front of three girls at the bus loop shelter, located near The Bay. Anyone with information is asked to call Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.


Police say a cyclist is lucky to be alive after being dragged by a vehicle following a collision in downtown Kelowna. At 4:50 p.m. on Monday, members of the Downtown Enforcement Unit were on patrol in the 200-block of Leon Avenue when they were approached by a cyclist who said he had been struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Leon Avenue and Ellis Street. “According to witnesses, a silver vehicle was traveling northbound on Ellis Street approaching a red light while the cyclist was traveling westbound

First-time buyers shake up real estate market doldrums Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

It may be difficult to get a fix on the local real estate market given the high number of prognosticating, so-called experts. But from the point of view of one local realtor, there have been improvements, and he has the numbers to show a growing contingent of firsttime buyers are the reason why. On the heels of a new Re/Max report focused on new buyers, realtor Cliff Shillington contended a lower price point and a looming hike in interest rates created a stir among

those who were previously frozen out of the market, sparking some much needed market momentum. “Compared to last year, our inventory is down and condos are moving,” he said, highlighting the fact it’s lower priced homes that are increasingly popular. Thirty per cent of 418 year-to-date sales, up until February, took place at the under $260,000 pricepoint, and nearly 80 of those were condominiums. Cheaper condos and townhouses, said Shillington, are key to the positive momentum in the market,

cautioning there are slim pickings in that price point for those who want the white-picket fence pipe dream. There are just 39 single-family homes currently listed in that price range, and he said most of those can be described as “handyman specials.” “That’s not a bad thing,” he said, in reference to the fact that single-family homes are out of reach for some. “Let’s face it, we’re only going to move forward and it’s good to get into the market.” Those content with condominiums can find 151 one-bedroom units

currently listed for sale, typically averaging 800 sq. ft, with an average asking price of $255,000. Apartment style units can start as low as $200,000 in older areas of the city that are being revitalized. Other popular areas to get a starter home are Glenrosa, Rutland, and North Glenmore and Central Kelowna. While affordability is an issue for some, a growing number of first-time purchasers are spending amounts closer to average price, which is typically between $350,000 and $400,000. Residential average

price currently hovers at $390,000. Getting into a home that price, with a five per cent down payment of $19,523, would make the monthly carrying costs $1,740. An income of $65,239 would be required to take part in the market. As an aside, changes

to recent financing criteria have not created the anticipated run up in activity in most markets. From a financial standpoint, most rookie home buyers remain quite prudent. Those making the leap are not doing it lightly, buying within their

Fire department kept busy last year When 2010 was finally laid to rest, the Kelowna Fire Department were able to boast responding to nearly 10,000 emergency calls. Fire chief Jeff Carlisle presented city council with their department’s year in review, offering up stats that highlight where their time is spent. Specifically, the department responded to 1,762 fires, 6,457 medical calls, 774 motor vehicle accidents and 410 other calls.

August was the busiest month, as they had to answer to around 900 calls. Stewart Centre and the Barber Terrace fires were two of the notable large-scale emergencies, while wildfires in Seclusion Bay and Sailview Bay also taxed resources. While it was a busy year, the department was three per cent less busy in 2010 than they were in 2009.

Let May be part of the debate


he broadcast consortium has decided to bar Green party leader Elizabeth May from the 2011 federal leaders’ debates. She learned of this from a Canadian Press reporter, not the consortium, which represents Canada’s largest television networks. Only after public outrage was she included in the 2008 debates, during which she displayed her assertive persona. Initially, the Conservatives

and the NDP refused to participate if she was invited. Now the consortium argues that the Green party has never earned an elected seat in the House of Commons and, therefore, isn’t worthy of airtime, in English or French. We couldn’t disagree more. The Bloc party only runs candidates in Quebec, yet it is allowed to take part in the debates? The Green party is running candidates in all 308 Canadian ridings. Peter Tam is the

party’s nominee in Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission, where, in 2008 election, the Greens earned more votes than the Liberals. In all, the Green party garnered close to a million votes, representing one in 10 Canadians, or 6.8 per cent of all votes cast, for which it receives taxpayer money. What party leader would be willing to tell all those voters that their opinions, and dollars, don’t matter? Those opinions largely con-

cern the state of the environment, an issue that will no doubt be part of the leaders’ debates. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and NDP leader Jack Layton are both willing, this time, to accept if May is included in the debates, which for the most part, are all bickering. Regardless, the broadcast consortium needs to rethink its arbitrary decision and apologize to May, and voters, and let her speak. There should be no debating that.

On one level you can’t blame the chamber. It is an organization supported by, and there to serve, its duespaying members. And that’s what it is doing. If you want to play, you have to pay. But it’s sad to see the demise of what, in the past, had been a tradition of public service aimed at the entire community. There was a time when the chamber hosted such forums and the Kelowna Community Theatre was provided for the event. This time round, it will be in a local hotel, over lunch and with a cov-

er charge. Maybe, the fact that this is the fourth federal election in seven years has something to do with it. Throw in a few provincial elections during that time and a few municipal elections and its understandable why any organization would not want to keep dipping into its own pocket to provide a platform for politicians to repeatedly ask for votes. So, while Canada is fast becoming the Italy of North America, (with its penchant for the polling booth but without its randy prime minister) voters are switching off. Voter turnout is

dropping with every return trip to the ballot box and our skepticism about our political leaders is higher than ever. For $48 you can take someone to the movies and get a half decent meal. Or you can have the meal and wash it down with what promises to be vintage political rhetoric. In these cash-strapped, post-recession days, you have to decide which one will be more entertaining—and palatable. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor.

Governments independent of party politics could be answer for partisanship To the editor: We have a real opportunity in Canada to become a true democracy. We can have a government where our MPs and MLAs represent the wishes of the majority of their constituents. Currently we live in an elective autocracy. We can elect a dictatorship of the right, centre or left. If we elect the Conservative coalition nationally we choose those who were either members of the Progressive Conservatives or the Alliance. The policies of this right wing coalition are determined by the international business community that provides the funds for their multiple election campaigns. If we elect the Liberals, the policies are determined by the Canadian, particularly the Ontario business community, that provides the funding for their election campaigns. If we elect the New Democratic Party the policies are set by organized labour that provides the funding for their election campaign. If the citizens of Quebec elect the Parti Quebequois the policies are determined by those who want Quebec to separate from Canada and who provide funding for this party’s election campaign. I don’t know about you, but none of these groups represent me nor do they deal with the

issues I am concerned about when they are elected. I believe most Canadians want their government to represent their values. In my experience most Canadians want their fellow Canadians to have jobs that pay them a living wage, affordable education for our children and grand children, and accessible and affordable health care and medication for all citizens. Most Canadians want the needs of those who are unable to support themselves to be met. We do not want the mentally ill, physically challenged and mentally challenged to be living on the streets. Frankly, I don’t see our elected representatives dealing effectively with these issues. Rather, they are busy serving business or organized labour. Our representatives don’t seem to represent us. We can solve this problem by eliminating the party system. All we have to do is select an individual to run as an independent in every riding in Canada. This individual should be the most trustworthy and self giving person that we can find in our riding. This person should be someone who is interested in giving service, not attaining power and control. We then have to convince our fellow con-

stituents to vote for this individual. Considering the dissatisfaction that most of us have with our elected representatives who seem more interested in gaining power, control and a good pension than serving us, this should not be difficult. Once we have a parliament or a legislature full of independent candidates, they can elect from amongst themselves a Prime Minister and a Cabinet. In the future, legislation would have to be passed to provide equal funds to all candidates who wish to run for office. This legislation would also eliminate donations for election campaigns to political parties or individuals and they would not be allowed to use funds other than the government provided funds. Our representatives could use social media to gain our opinions in order to help determine how they would vote on each issue that comes before the parliament or the legislature. Each individual MP or MLA would have a free vote on each issue. If we really want a democracy we must select the best independent candidates that we can find, nominate them and elect them. Robert C. Anderson, Kelowna

Harper’s democracy is to prorogue Parliament To the editor: On March 28, Cpl. Yannick Scherrer, one of our Canadian soldiers, was killed in Afghanistan. It was a sad day for all Canadians, but most of all for his family and friends. People in Afghanistan and many other countries want democracy; so why does the “Harper” government find it so impossible to accept that Canadians must have democracy in our Parliament? That brings us to the reason why we are having an election. The “Harper” government was found

guilty of a historical first in all of the Commonwealth countries—contempt of Parliament. This is a very serious accusation; Harper willfully disobeyed and openly disrespected parliament. “Are we living in a contaminated moral society where people do not care about democracy, respect and the rule of law in Parliament; is it not where it should start? King Stephen prorogued Parliament twice which prevented democracy to prevail. Democracy is the backbone of our society. We have the largest

deficit in history, and this government has spent more than any other government. When Harper states that he is the best person for our economy, it doesn’t take an economist to know that the effects of our economy is exterior to our country— the USA, China and Japan are the largest influence to all country’s economies. We saw what happened when the U.S. went into a crisis—all the world went into a recession, including us, although “Harper’s” government denied it to the very end.

Coalition; how many times have we heard Harper say this word. Although (former PM Paul) Martin’s Liberals had been elected democratically, Harper wanted to become the PM; so he called the Bloc and the NDP and they all signed a paper together; the Bloc leader is now showing this paper in his campaign. Remember when the “Harper” government ran on “We will clean up government,” and “Our government will have transparency, clarity and trust.” We have been lied to over

and over, we’ve had scandal after scandal, flip, flops, and the RCMP’s investigations are still going on. But still, after all this, Harper wants a majority. This is scary coming from a man who was found guilty of contempt of Parliament; what would he do if he had a majority; think about it before you vote. Instead of complaining about voting, think of it as a privilege that others in this world would love to have. Ruth McKeage, Kelowna

Care at Kelowna General exceptional in every way To the editor: My positive experiences and outcomes from a recent traumatic stay in Kelowna General Hospital need to be shared with your readers. What an incredible journey I discovered at KGH. The care and compassion from most all staff was awesome and brilliant, plus any other superlatives you may wish to add. And I’m talking about care to all patients— especially older people. What staff endure, day-in-day-out would drive a saint to drink (figuratively speaking), but I saw hardly a sign. In particular, two of the RNs, Elana and Jen, were simply outstanding. (Registered nurses must

achieve their bachelors of nursing before receiving their RN). They hardly stopped running during the critical 48 hours I was under their care, only to share some words to brighten your day and/or give you a laugh. I wish to emphasize that most staff people I came into contact with were remarkable, but Elana and Jan stood out. In a four-bed room, mostly with curtains drawn, sharing with three women or two women and one man, I saw and heard a whole lot of what nightmares are made of. Elana and Jan reserved their most special care for their older patients with endearing names like ‘love’. The level of caring, patience and compas-

sion delivered within my senses will keep me warm for the rest of my days, the Good Lord willing. Certain caregiving procedures—like changing the dressings on my catheter that carried food and antibiotics, intravenously, close to the heart, is by necessity complex, requiring meticulous procedures to prevent infection to the heart—were carried out without hesitation. The incredible level of knowledge, responsibility and expertise that these people carry, on a routine basis, just boggles my mind. How on earth do they sustain it 12-hour shift after shift and still retain that wonderful patience and charm?

I credit Elana and Jan with the speed of my recovery. Thank you from

The organization that developed Kelowna’s High Noon Park so locals would have an ideal place to play ball for the last 25 years, may finally get their coffers infused with some cash from the city. The Kelowna Minor Fastball society went to council with a request for $45,000 that would allow them to repair and maintain facilities at the Old Vernon Road site, after reaching a financial breaking point following the halving of their share of provincial gaming grants. “This facility is an important facility in minor sport delivery system,” explained city staffer Jim Gabriel, bringing the financial request forward. He added that it would cost the city $85,000 if the contract to maintain the property was brought in-house. While many requests for funds have fallen on deaf ears due to the city’s financial constraints, but this proposal was a hit with the vast majority of city council members who pointed out they’ve had a

lengthy free ride when it came to the site. “The city got a great deal with this thing—we haven’t put a dime into this whole project,” said Coun. Andre Blanleil. “The city needs to come to the table with the lottery money being changed… and it’s time the city played a bigger role in this.” Pointing out that thousands of volunteer hours and dollars have been poured into the site, due to the efforts of the society, Blanleil said that it could only get better with city involvement. Coun. Robert Hobson, admittedly filling a dollar-wary role that usually falls to Blanleil, asked where the $45,000 would come from and how it would impact the final budget, which comes out in May. That, he was told, would be determined at that time. Also expressing some misgivings, was Coun. Luke Stack who pointed out that council already decided to top up the Lawn Bowling Club, which was in need of $15,000. “This could be a trend, and we as council need to pay attention,” he said.

Snowdrops bloom late this year, to columnist’s dismay T he snowdrops are blooming, the snowdrops are blooming. Why am I so excited? Because it has been just too long coming this year. I looked up my blooming dates and noted that I have recorded seeing snowdrops in early March some years. Regardless of when they come out, the early spring blooming bulbs herald the beginning of a new gardening year. Crocus, Siberian iris, glory of the snow and species tulips are just a few of them. The pussy willows are now looking good but according to my records a few years ago they were finished by March 20. ***


Don Burnett I’ve often had gardeners tell me they have trouble growing sweet peas in the Okanagan. I tend to agree that the show we get here is nothing to what can be accomplished on the Prairies. The difference is our heat. May and June can be very hot months and sweet peas, like regular garden peas, like to grow cool. In fact, some gardeners sow their peas in the fall so they go through the

winter as two-inch seedlings, ready to start growing in the spring. For most gardeners, however, getting sweet peas and garden variety peas in by early March is ideal, so if you haven’t planted your sweat peas yet you had better get busy. Here are a few tips for success. Prepare the soil with well-rotted organic compost such as Natures Gold; peas love it. Make your rows to run north and south for best exposure to the sun and improved air circulation. Soak the seeds in water for an hour or two and dust them with an inoculant specially prepared for legumes such as peas and beans.

The members of the legume family have nitrogen producing nodules on their roots that are enhanced when the inoculant, which is a soil bacteria is applied. This improves their ability to fix their own nitrogen from the air through a symbiotic relationship hence improving the crops growth and productivity. Another good trick is to dig the seed furrow about four inches deep but only cover the seed about an inch. As the little pea seedlings grow the furrow can then be filled in. Space the seeds about two inches apart with the rows about 24 to 30 inches wide. Sow seeds every two

to three weeks for continual harvest with a sowing in late July for a fall crop. *** On a sad note, we lost a very close friend of our family. Grant Mitchell passed away this past week. My thoughts are with his dear sister Moira, who was by his side and helped him during these difficult times. Moira has been a good friend of my sister Joan since childhood. Grant was one of those great Kelowna folks who felt like a brother whenever we bumped into one another. The conversation inevitably turned to our parents and the great times they had together as young people in the first

Kelowna duo face drug charges after Rutland house bust Two Kelowna residents will be expected at a future court date after police allege they found dried marijuana and other drug paraphernalia inside a Rutland home over the weekend. RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in the 300-block of Froelich Road around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday as part of an ongoing marijuana trafficking investigation, said Staff Sgt. John Jordan. Investigators say they found less than 500 grams of dried marijuana, packaging material and weigh scales during the course of the search, and also took five people into custody. Three men, two of whom are associated with the home, were released unconditionally, say police, while a man and a woman associated with the home will have to appear in court at a later date. They’re facing recommended charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, police say.

’Hawks favoured but Rockets undeterred Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

For at least two reasons—50 regular season wins and a better headto-head record—the Portland Winterhawks are favoured, by most, to ground the Kelowna Rockets in the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs. However, delete the first five weeks of the 2010-11 campaign and you’d be hard pressed to find much disparity between the teams. Since Nov.1, playoffs included, the Winterhawks have posted a 4217-0-2 record. Despite finishing with 16 fewer points overall, the Rockets ran up an uncannily similar mark of 43-18-0-1 during the same stretch. Portland took three of

four regular season meetings between the clubs but all three wins came before Oct. 31. The rejuvenated Rockets won the last encounter, 5-3 on Jan. 16 at Prospera Place. Toss out Kelowna’s shaky 4-10 start to the season and what does it all add up to ? A series that perhaps isn’t quite as cut and dried as the overall numbers would suggest. So while getting past the high-powered Winterhawks will prove a formidable task, Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton expects his team to put up a fight, for better or worse. “If we go into this thinking we can’t beat them, we’re in trouble before we start,” said Hamilton. “I think (Portland) played in a tougher division than us, so I don’t

know how much you can read into those records. Having said that, our team has gotten a lot better since Christmas, we did win our division and that says something. In November, I don’t think anyone gave us a chance of being where we are. “We know this will be tough, but we have a chance to extend this thing.” At first glance, the series matches up as Portland’s potent offensive attack and skill against the Rockets work ethic, adherence to the system and goaltending. Led by the likes of Ryan Johansen, Nino Niederreiter, Sven Bartschi and Craig Cunningham, Portland scored the third most goals (303)

in the WHL this season. With Adam Brown holding the fort, the Rockets posted the second lowest goal total(201) in the Western Conference during the regular season. Hamilton expects goaltending to play a significant role in the series but said the 19-year-old Brown will need to be better than in Kelowna’s firstround sweep of Prince George when he yielded 13 goals. In the big picture, Hamilton said the Rockets’ success will hinge on team play prevailing over Portland’s talent. “A lot of their guys are high-end players so we can’t go battleship-tobattleship with them and expect to win,” said Hamilton. “They’re bigger and

they’re bit older, too. “For us, that’ll mean playing a better team game, making sure we make it difficult on them. We have to play a style of game that disrupts them, and frustrates them. This will be very tough for us, there’s no question.” “It will be a good challenge for our coaches and our players.” A potential challenge for both teams will be the protracted time it will take to play the first two games of the series. The Rockets left Tuesday for Portland with Games 1 and 2 slated for Thursday and Sunday. That means five days in the Oregon city before returning home in the wee hours of next Monday. The Rose Garden—

Star Cracks


the Winterhawks home arena for the playoffs— is booked on both Friday and Saturday nights by basketball games. And while not the ideal situation, Hamilton doesn’t expect the extended layover to have an adverse effect on his team. “If anything, it’ll give us a chance to make some adjustments after the first game if we need to,” he said. “But really, both teams are in the same boat. It don’t think it’s going to be a problem, Portland’s a nice city and we’ll be able to create some things for the guys to do between games. After that, it really picks up, we could have four games in six days with a lot of travel added in. Maybe the downtime


now won’t be such a bad thing.” Games 3 and 4 are set for next Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Prospera Place.


Rockets centre Shane McColgan has earned WHL player of the week honours. The Manhattan Beach, Calif. native picked up five points on three goals and two assists to lead the Rockets to a four-game sweep of the Prince George in the opening round of the playoffs. With 10 points overall, McColgan shares the playoff scoring lead with Portland’s Nino Niederreiter and Saskatoon’s Brayden Schenn.

Volleyballers Tucker, Nyhus land top Heat athletic awards Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With the exception of winning a national championship with their

Heat teammates, there wasn’t much more Preston Tucker or Caitlin Nyhus could have possibly accomplished during the 2010-11 B.C. Colleges

Athletics Association season. On Monday night, the UBC Okanagan athletics department honoured the exploits of the two volley-

ball standouts at the Heat’s third annual awards ceremony. Tucker, the fourth-year setter from Vernon, was named winner of the UBC

Okanagan’s Male Student Athlete of the Year Award. Nyhus, a graduating setter from the Heat women’s squad, was presented with the Female

Bloodoff back for round 2 Serwa 2nd at nationals, Pankratz 5th Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

A long three weeks is almost over for Evan Bloodoff. With a four-game suspension now in the books, the 20-year-old forward will rejoin his Kelowna Rockets teammates Thursday night in time for the start of their WHL second-round playoff series in Portland. Head coach Ryan Huska said Bloodoff’s return will be enthusiastically welcomed by the entire team. “Even in our practises, the tempo goes up when Evan’s out there because of his skating and his energy,” said Huska. “We missed his work ethic and it’ll be nice to have that back.” Bloodoff was disciplined for checking Van-

Evan Bloodoff couver defenceman Joel Rogers into the end boards March 19 at Prospera Place. He received a charging major and game misconduct, while Rogers suffered a concussion and missed the remainder of the Giants’ season. After missing out on Kelowna’s four-game sweep of the Prince George Cougars in the opening round of the playoffs, Bloodoff is ready to make a contribu-

tion against the favoured Winterhawks. “It was hard sitting out, watching the guys but I’m excited to get back out there, work hard and try and bring some energy,” said Bloodoff who had 22 goals and 44 points this season. “These should be fun games in Portland. They’re a very skilled team that can score, so I think discipline will be a key for us. We need to use our speed, our skating and get goaltending we’ve been getting all year from Adam (Brown).” The Castlegar product is well accustomed to watching his teammates from a distance. A knee injury kept Bloodoff on the shelf for all but nine games during the 2009-10 regular season.

Kesley Serwa closed out a stellar 2010-11 competitive season with a second-place showing at the Ski Cross Canadian Championships at Lake Louise. The 21-year-old from Kelowna was edged out at the finish line on Saturday by Marielle Thompson, 18, from Whistler.

Big White’s Mikayla Pankratz made her presence known on the national stage with a fifth-place finish out of seven competitors. Serwa enjoyed her best season to date on the international ski cross circuit, winning the gold medal at both the X Games in Aspen, Colorado and the world championships

at Deer Valley, Utah. On the FIS World Cup circuit, Serwa placed third overall in the season standings. She won a gold medal in Alpe d Huez, France in January, and added three silver medals including one at the final World Cup event of the season in Norway.

McCurdy lanes hosts Canadian mixed championship Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER



This is the last ski tip for the season; we hope that you’ve enjoyed them and that you found them to be helpful. There are still a few days of great skiing to be had but it won’t be long until the golf courses are full and the beaches are brimming with activity. Just so you’re ready to go for next season it’s a good idea to prepare your skis for their summer hibernation. All of the ski shops in town and the shop up here on the mountain can help you with this but if you’re a do-it-yourselfer here’s a couple of things to keep in mind. Start with a bit of an overall clean up; some warm lightly soapy water will do the trick. You want to back off the tension in your bindings so the springs have a chance to relax, if you’ve used the soapy water on them you’re going to want to use a bit of binding lubricant on them as well, this is available at ski shops. Make sure you dry everything really well. From there you need to take care of the bases of your skis, a good thick coating of a general purpose ski wax will keep your skis fast for next year. Put the wax on but don’t scrape it off. After the skis have cooled they’re ready to be put away, store them in a cool dry place and you’re done.

As a supportive father and fan, Lorne Craig has been to a number of Canadian bowling championships in the past with his daughter, Marina. Now, for the first time as a competitor, the elder Craig will get a chance to knock down some pins at a national event this week at the McCurdy Bowling Centre. Craig is one of as many as 200 bowlers— from Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.—who are expected for the Canadian Tenpin Federation’s 9th annual Canadian Mixed Championships beginning Thursday in Kelowna. “It’s going to be pretty neat to see the different bowling styles from across the country and to see people who love the sport come together in one place,” said Lorne Craig who has a 212 average this season. “I think it’s huge to have a national event in our own backyard, it’s great for the game here.


KELOWNA bowlers Nancy Cobb (left) and Lorne

Craig will be among the competitors at the Canadian Tenpin Federation’s 9th annual Canadian Mixed Championships this week at McCurdy Bowling Centre. I’m going to go out and try have fun, I’m bowling with a good partner, and I should feel pretty comfortable with the surroundings.” Craig, one of about 60 locals competing, will bowl in the singles event, and in the doubles event with Nancy Cobb. He’ll also join forces with Cobb, Clem Fraser and Wendy Fraser in the team event. The Canadian Mixed Championship—hosted by the Kelowna Tenpin Bowling Association— is a handicapped event,

meaning a bowler of virtually any ability can walk away with a national title. For example, if a bowler with a 125 average performs well enough, he or she could easily knock off a player with a 200 average or better. “What this kind of event does is shows people with lower averages that they can compete, it really levels the playing field,” said Merlin Bunnage, the general manager of McCurdy Bowling Centre and two-time Canadian World Cup champion.

“That’s the great thing about it. It gives every player, regardless of average, a chance to come out and kick my butt,” Bunnage added with a laugh. The Canadian mixed tournament is the third national event McCurdy has hosted in the last eight years. A national youth tournament came to Kelowna in 2003, while the national classified championship stopped at McCurdy in 2004. “It’s always exciting for us to host national events like vthese,” said Bunnage. “These are a lot of fun and I know everyone involved here is excited about it. It’s a chance to show off our facility and our city.” Bowlers will compete in the singles, doubles, and team categories with awards also being handed out for all-events combined scores. The opening ceremony goes at 6 p.m. on Thursday, with the first round of action beginning at 7 p.m. Competition will run right through until Sunday with the final session beginning at 3 p.m.

As luck would have it, the hosting of the Canadian Mixed Championship just happens to coincide with the official launching of the Kelowna Tenpin Bowling Association’s new web site. Designed by four Okanagan College students, known as the Pin Pals, the site came online on Monday and is an exciting new addition for the local association. “It’s fantastic for us, it’s very user-friendly and the Pin Pals deserve all the credit,” said Craig Taylor, communications coordinator for the KTBA. “About 70 per cent of it is geared to the bowlers in our association, about 20 per cent promotes the City of Kelowna, and another 10 per cent promotes McCurdy. It’s a one-stop shop for local bowlers and for bowlers from out of town. Everything is right there on the site and we’re excited about it.” For more information, visit the new KTBA web site at

Tax write-offs for the self-employed sole proprietor L

ast issue, I addressed the available tax write-offs for people who were employed but worked away from the office. This week, the topic shifts a little—what are the write-offs for people who are operating as contractors or self-employed persons? The main concern here is whether the person could actually be classified as an employee. The Canada Revenue Agency has a booklet called #RC4110 Employed or Self-Employed that outlines the criteria used to make that determination. To give a basic summary, the self-employed person must pick their own hours, must use their own tools and must experience the risks of being in business for themselves. This last criteria seems


Gabriele Banka to be key. For example, if you make a mistake, do you lose the client, or does your employer? Having determined that you fall under the self-employed category, reference the CRA booklet T4002 Business and Professional Income Guide. Both these booklets are downloadable from the CRA website. Bookkeeping for a self-employed person is very similar to bookkeeping for a corporation, other than the share structure and preparing the tax return.

The profit made by a self-employed person is included in their own personal income tax return and is taxed at the personal tax rates. On the other hand, the corporation is taxed as a separate entity and taxed at corporate tax rates. The business owner needs to be able to tell the difference between current and capital expenses. Current expenses are those expenditures that will be used up in the business in the current year. Capital expenses are those expenditures for items that will be used by the company for more than the current year. Some examples of these are computer hardware, manufacturing equipment, office equipment, buildings and automobiles. Capital expenses are collected in various class-

es and are amortized or depreciated over the expected life of the asset or the corresponding lease or the life of the business depending on the type of asset. The amortization or deprecation for tax purposes is called the Capital Cost Allowance or CCA. Some of the current expenses are items such as advertising and promotion—for all those gifts that you give out to your clients or prospective clients, bad debt expense for writing off those accounts that will never be collectible. Meals and expenses can only be deducted at 50 per cent and if you are remitting your HST, you can only deduct 50 per cent of the HST that you paid on your meals on your HST return. You can hold up to six employee dinners per year and deduct the entire cost of these events and the corresponding HST. If you sponsor or hold an event for charity, that is also totally deductible. If you provide meals to employees at a job site where the employee does not return home every night, those are also 100 per cent deductible. Of course, there are many different scenarios

when it comes to the deductibility of meals and each will need to be reviewed separately as they occur. If you carry stock, like a corporation, you have the ability to start with an opening inventory count, add the purchases for the year and then deduct the closing inventory count to determine your actual costs of sales. Included in the cost of sales category could also be your production wages and benefits and any monies paid to subcontractors (yet another selfemployed person). There is also a comprehensive schedule to record your motor vehicle expenses such as gas, repairs, insurance and leasing costs.

If you have a space in the home that you have designated an office and where you can meet prospective business clients, you may also be able to deduct a portion of your home expenses. The items that you can deduct are your heat, electricity, home insurance, property taxes, mortgage insurance or rent payments, maintenance costs on your home, telephone and Internet costs, strata fees, other utility fees such as garbage pick up and even landscaping. To determine how much to deduct, measure the area of your office and work out a percentage with the total area of your home. What you need to give your accountant are the

total home expenses for the year, the square footage of your office and the square footage of your home. The tax software will then calculate the correct amount of office in home expenses for you to deduct. Finally, if you made a profit and owe tax to CRA, that tax must be paid by April 30 of every year, which is why you are encouraged to make installment payments. The actual tax return does not need to be filed until June 15. Gabriele Banka is a Certified General Accountant and the owner of Banka & Company Inc. 250-763-4528

Little shop with a big heart The MCC Thrift Shop on Roxby Road is a beehive of activity. Upstairs volunteers staff the till, put out items to be sold, straighten shelves and tidy the clothing racks. June Foreman, who manages the shop, chats with Robert, a volunteer who has brought in a beautiful framed print to

consider for the shop’s silent auction area. “I have the best job here,” Robert says. “I get to be creative.” Robert and Fred, another volunteer, work with prints, paintings and photographs often replacing the frames and mats that are also donated to the shop.

NEWS W B.C. LUNG ASSOCIATION Local foundation supports Hope Air medical care flights Trade golf savings for research dollars Hope Air, the unique national charity that provides free flights to people who cannot afford the cost of an airline ticket to get to specialized medical care outside their local communities, has received funding from the Central Okanagan Foundation to expand its free flight services to residents of the region in 2011. Central Okanagan Foundation is providing funding to Hope Air in 2011 to provide flights to residents of the region, assisting children, single-parent families and people in financial need who must travel long distances to receive either diagnosis or specialized treatment. “Last year, Hope Air provided over 560 flights related to the Central Okanagan region of British Columbia,” said Dennis Kiffiak, Hope Air’s director of

development based in Vancouver. “In fact, the Kelowna-to-Vancouver route was our busiest route in all of Canada with 473 flights. Fifty per cent of all flights were provided for children. “The funding provided by the Central Okanagan Foundation is an important element to our commitment to expand free flights to the central B.C. Interior “We know that there are many residents of the Okanagan Valley who need to get to certain types of health care that does not exist in the local community. “Support from local organizations like the Central Okanagan Foundation helps Hope Air to overcome the twin barriers of cost and distance that prohibit people from accessing the medical care they need.”

For more than 20 years the British Columbia Lung Association has offered a great deal to golf enthusiasts and amateurs alike: The annual Golf Privilege Club® membership book. For only $35 this ultimate golf savings book offers deep discounts and reduced fees at over 450 golf courses in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Washington State. By giving just a little, Kelowna golfers can receive great savings and discounts on their favourite sport while also supporting the one in five British Columbians living with lung disease. “Our membership book saves golfers hundreds of dollars for less than the price of one round of golf,” said Walda Reszitnyk, B.C. Lung Association volunteer director for Kelowna. “It’s also a great way for golfers to pay less and play more while supporting the lung association’s work to improve lung

health in British Columbia.” Chronic lung disease is the fastest growing cause of hospitalization, disability and death in Canada. Incidence of child asthma has reached epidemic levels, lung cancer takes more lives each year than any other cancer and tobacco use remains the number one preventable cause of death. Help us make lung disease history. To purchase a copy of the BC Lung Association ultimate golf savings book visit or call 1-800-6655864. As a non-profit and volunteer-based health charity, the B.C. Lung Association depends on donations from the public. Through fundraising programs such as the Golf Privilege Club, the BCLA is able to support lung health research, education, prevention and advocacy for British Columbians suffering from respiratory illnesses. In addition,

Sunshine brightens new shopping opportunities Jan Johnson CONTRIBUTOR

It’s spring, glorious spring, that lovely time of year when a person’s fancy turns to…shopping! And how fortunate for us all that two new shops have recently opened in downtown Kelowna to help us in that pursuit. At 565 Bernard Ave. (the front of the Towne Centre Mall), you’ll find a striking new store called Little Shop of Treasures. Owner Athena Markusson has recently moved to Kelowna after having several successful stores in Banff. She’s created a spot with a bright, fresh feel and an amazing array of home decor, jewelry and body products. The whitewashed wooden display cases and light wood floor create the perfect backdrop for the amazing variety of treasures displayed within.

I particularly loved the geckos and flamingos made in Thailand entirely from tiny beads, the bright and happy pottery and display boxes from India, and the incredible cut metalwork from Haiti. The best thing is that you can feel good about your purchases here, because Athena’s philosophy is to buy from World Fair Trade suppliers. The next best thing (okay, maybe this is really the best thing) is that the prices are so reasonable that you’ll gasp in surprise—in a good way. Down the street and around the corner at 1551 Ellis St. is S Clothing Ltd., a new high-end women’s consignment clothing shop. Owner Stephanie Holmz grew up in Calgary and dreamed of her own shop, which she’s now made a reality. Her focus is on high-end, designer styles that are trendy and even fashion-forward.

“Lots of women have items in their closet that they’ve never worn—sometimes with the tags still on them,” said Holmz. “This is a way to recycle those things and pass them on to someone who will love them.” Her shop features lots of denim (labels like William Rast, 7 for All Mankind, Rock & Republic), beautiful tops, gently-worn and new shoes (labels like BCBG, 9 West, Prada) and purses (Coach bags). It’s all very organized on the long, narrow walls in colour-coordinated groupings which really help you to focus in. Definitely worth a visit! After a morning of checking out the new downtown shops, what could be better than lunch at a wonderful new cafe? Head up to the North end and visit Okanagan Street Food at 812 Crowley St. This creative addition to the downtown food scene is the brainchild of Neil Schroeter, the





Kelowna Holiday Inn Express 2429 Highway 97 N April 8, 9, 10 Fri, Sat & Sun 10am - 5pm


chef and owner. Schroeter used to run a catering truck at the local farmers’ market, and it was so popular that he decided to open his own cafe. Open Tuesday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the cafe serves up breakfast (try huevos rancheros with roast chorizo sausage) and lunch (how about candied salmon risotto fritters or a seared fish taco…yum!). Schroeter also sells frozen versions of some of his favourite dishes for take out. He can hold private functions for up to 20 people in the cafe, and he does catering for outside functions of up to 250 people. Thanks to Sheilagh for the tip on this delicious find. I have to leave you with a little taste of some downtown culture. On Saturday, April 30, several art galleries are sponsoring a Spring Winefest Downtown Gallery Hop. Why not grab a friend and make a day of it?

w w w . T e a m G e e n . c o m

You can start at one gallery, take in the amazing selection of art, sample wine tastings and stroll to the next gallery. Participating galleries are Picture Perfect on Bernard, A Woodside Design Gallery on Pandosy and Evans Fischer Gallery on Lawrence. Sounds like the perfect way to spend a spring day. Until next time, enjoy the spring sunshine and the rich tapestry of life that downtown Kelowna has to offer.

Jan Johnson has co-owned Tigerlily Fashions downtown for 25 years, and she never ceases to be amazed at the variety of unique businesses and events that are attracted to the downtown area. If you have any information to share with her, please email her at

With the sale, the Greenroom will no longer be catering for the Actors Studio.

the excluded categories. Temporary foreign workers have access to the same remedial mechanisms as Canadians when it comes to labour and employment standards. Provinces and territories have primary responsibility for enforcement of labour standards and have offices that can assist all workers regarding fair pay, hours of work, rest periods and general working conditions. Workers should contact the appropriate authority in the province or territory they work in if they have concerns about their working conditions. Ultimately, the protection of the rights and entitlements of vulnerable foreigner workers in Canada might be better viewed as our collective responsibility so we should all be on the lookout for possible abuses.

Let 30 years of interior design know-how work for you!


emporary foreign workers in Canada have had numerous employment standards and administrative requirements in place for their protection. Effective April 1, 2011, a range of new safeguards came into effect. At a high level, the new safeguards comprise a deeper assessment of the genuineness of the job offer from the Canadian employer, a two-year period of ineligibility from hiring temporary foreign workers for employers who fail to meet their commitments, and a fouryear limit on the length of time some temporary foreign workers may work here. Job offers to temporary foreign workers will now be assessed taking into account the genuineness of the job offer, the consistency of the job offer with the terms of any federal-provincial/territorial agreement, the history of the employer in hiring temporary foreign workers over the previous two years, and the length of time that the foreign national being hired has worked in Canada. The assessment of genuineness will look specifically at whether the employer is actively

mit applications or being deemed ineligible to hire foreign workers for two years and having their name displayed on a government web site. Many temporary foreign workers will now be subject to a four-year ‘cumulative duration’ limit on the length of time they may work in Canada. This regulation is not retroactive—the clock starts ticking on April 1, 2011, for all temporary foreign workers, regardless of how long they have already been in Canada. The four-year limit may not, however, include periods during which the foreign worker was on an extended unpaid leave, on parental leave, or was unemployed. After a foreign worker has reached his or her four year cumulative duration limit, he or she will not be granted another work permit in Canada for an additional four years (after that time has elapsed, the worker will again be permitted to work here). Numerous categories of foreign workers will be exempt from the four year cumulative duration regulation, so federal web sites should be consulted for

engaged in the business, whether the job offer is consistent with the needs of the employer, whether the employer is reasonably able to fulfill the terms of the job offer, and whether the employer has previously complied with applicable laws regulating employment in the jurisdiction where the worker will be employed. For live-in caregivers, the assessment of genuineness will also consider whether the caregiver will be residing in a private household in Canada and providing child care, senior home support care or care of a disabled person in that household, whether the employer will provide adequately furnished and private accommodations in the household, and whether the employer has sufficient financial resources to pay the caregiver the wages offered. Employers who have failed to meet commitments as promised in past job offers and who have failed to provide reasonable justification or to rectify the situation by providing appropriate compensation to the former employee may face the refusal of work per-

Innovative buffet-style dining “ Comfort food” is a buzz phrase that every now and then confronts us with visions of satisfaction and pleasure. In that moment, it becomes our mantra for those tasty morsels that give us joy, warmth to our souls and leave us grinning like a Cheshire cat. As entrepreneurship takes many forms in its creation and delivery, this week I present to you a roller coaster ride for a couple with a story of innovation that not only had me dizzy from the ride, but a side ache from the laughter I enjoyed through our communication this past weekend in West Kelowna. Torsten Kaminski, born in Hagen, Germany, of small business operating parents, learned from a very early age the meaning of a family business. Torsten’s father operated a leather goods venture in Germany. As a kid growing up, young Torsten enjoyed his personal development with his entrepreneurially-minded parents at his side. In 1979, the Kaminski family decided to move to the U.S. and purchased a hotel in Florida. At his father’s side, Torsten said his father amusedly asked him to learn by experience every aspect of the hotel operation, from maintenance and luggage handling, to booking guests and providing information to the


Joel Young visitors about the Florida sites. It was an education unto itself into the hospitality industry. In 1989, after graduating Grade 12, Torsten and his three siblings long with his parents were ready for another exploratory mission. So, the family moved to Nanaimo where his parents acquired the Long Lake Inn, another notable hotel establishment which continued to provide Torsten with the skills set for interpersonal relations and people management of a tourism-based enterprise on Vancouver Island. During the 1989 period in Florida, Torsten met his wife Jeanne, a Southern belle from Memphis, who had been managing a clothing store in Miami. Torsten told me over a coffee that she fell in love at first glance at a party where the couple met. Within a year, the happy couple were married and joined the family parade to Nanaimo, to begin yet another milestone in their entrepreneurial love story. In 1992, the couple returned to the U.S. as his wife’s father was very ill

and she wished to be closer to him. Torsten then took a position as a manager of a Denny’s restaurant as the first of the couple’s four children arrived in 1993. The Kaminskis soon couple found themselves operating a sign company and jewelry store. It amazed me to witness the ease within which this couple described their ventures in a casual matter of fact manner. It just came naturally to them—of course they were going to launch a venture together. It didn’t seem to be to a threat to their existence at all as both of them are highly disciplined people who value and embrace a realistic work ethic to “reap what they sow” in life. After Jeanne’s father passed away, the couple decided to return to Canada, to call B.C. their home. In 2006, both Kaminski families settled in the Central Okanagan. Torsten’s parents continued their entrepreneurial pursuit in downtown Kelowna, while Torsten and Jeanne tackled their new residency in the Okanagan region with a new venture—the “Walking Taco” concession kiosk which they operated at many regional events. They did catering work upon request and found great success with that approach in their new home environment. People raved about

the choices and quality of the food products the couple served wherever they journeyed in the valley. During this diversified experience with their Walking Taco concession, the couple spent many hours examining potential ventures that the two of them could develop for their future in the Okanagan landscape. It boldly came clear to them that with both of their solid experiences in the food and beverage industry in Canada and the U.S., they likely could be comfortably launch a restaurant venture. Next, the couple embarked on searching for a market niche. Recognizing that in difficult economic times, people look for the optimum value for dollars spent. And although Asian buffets have been quite popular in Canada over the years, there has not been much evidence of influence in comfort food concepts. The Kaminskis determined they were on the right path and embraced together the concept model of a “ home-style” buffet model in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, their vision becoming a reality as The Patio Buffet. The first Patio Buffet opened in Vernon one year ago, and a second location attached to the Comfort Inn in West Kelowna started up two months ago. I love their motto: “All You Can Eat, And We’ll Do the Dishes.” I learned quickly from my chat with Torsten and Jeanne that creating and operating a staff team, offering large diversified and incredibly delicious buffet menu was paramount for success in the minds and hearts of this couple. Dear readers, please do yourself and your friends and loved ones a big favour and gift of a visit breakfast, lunch or supper to the Patio Buffet in Vernon or West Kelowna, and make certain you ask for either Torsten or Jeanne—they would love to chat with you and walk you through the mouthwatering dishes in the buffet containers. I guarantee you won’t be sorry. This couple is what entrepreneurship in the valley is all about— innovation and creativity. Joel Young is founder of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society.

Royal Wood’s has set his own career path since he was 4 Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Single-minded drive. It’s something one associates with top athletes. It’s synonymous with success in the white collar world—Wall Street, top legal minds, Donald Trump. But when one thinks about musicians, lifelong practise or not, singleminded determination just isn’t something our cultural experience wants to tie to the guy playing the piano. Unless it’s Royal Wood. “I was four when I started playing piano and this was it. This was what I wanted to do,” said Wood, in an interview to plug his upcoming Kelowna gig. Wood is billed as the

well-dressed guy on the Canadian singer-songwriter scene. Named iTunes’ Songwriter of the Year with song placements in Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, he came very close to being named songwriter of the year at the Junos last month—though he couldn’t top Arcade Fire’s blockbuster run. The French Canadian band that’s swept the North American music scene this year winning the Juno and Album of the Year at the Grammys— to the surprise of many an American counterpart— were not the first from Montreal to stomp on this Ontario native’s heart. There’s a very funny story on an online blog about a whiny French Canadian girl he once


ROYAL WOOD performs at the Minstrel on Saturday. asked on a date only to discover she could see

nothing positive about the evening they spent out.

(Google Mike’s Bloggity Blog) If the goofy story tells us anything about this man, it’s that he clearly takes getting his name out there as seriously as he takes playing music—and he’s well-known for his professionalism. He takes to the stage in a suit and tie, saying his body just knows it’s time to perform when he’s dressed to the nines. “I feel I change into a super hero on stage with that suit on,” he says. “My parents taught us that you dress for the company. You had to be home for Sunday dinner and you dressed up.” His mother reportedly has stacks of his old report cards in which he always checked off musician when asked what he


Hudson more deserving artist than Brown JENNIFER HUDSON: I REMEMBER ME (ARISTA)

This album made its debut in the Canadian album charts at a somewhat disappointing No. 34 considering Jennifer Hudson’s first album, now nearly three years old, won a Grammy for Best R&B album. I have had this new disc for over a month now so maybe her recording label pushed the release date back, or I am getting remarkably superb service for my column from the mighty Sony Corp? Anyway, this is an excellent Urban R&B al-


Bruce Mitchell bum where Hudson is not trying to re-invent the wheel, but rather expand on her amazing prowess as a singer and solidify her career as a standout performer for her time. On I Remember Me, Hudson may be celebrating her personal reinvention having survived a

horrible family tragedy while remaking her image by losing a lot of weight for her now rather buff bod (she is a spokesperson for Weight Watchers). There is a lot of affirmation on I Remember Me while superstar in her own right Alicia Keys writes and pens no less

than three songs for this album. Right now, Hudson has a hit with the R. Kelly ballad Where You At, but Hudson might enjoy some dance club exposure with the Keys up-tempo pop gems Don’t Look Down and Everybody Needs Love. Note that I Remember Me comes as a two-disc Deluxe Edition with extra songs and a DVD on the making of this new album. B+


F.A.M.E. is Chris Brown’s fourth album and it has made its debut at the lofty No. 6 spot, which the new Jennifer Hudson album is more deserving of, but it is also being hailed as Brown’s best to date. He also has (or had) a shot at career redemption after his infamous beating of Rihanna, but on the very day I listened to this new disc Brown was in the news again for trashing his dressing room at some day time TV talk show.

would like to be when he grew up. Dreaming of becoming The Beatles even as he rode his bike around the neighbourhood gave him a jump on most kids as he tried to build a path to success. The only selfdoubt he can recall is wondering whether he was going about it all the right way. “I worked some soul sucking jobs,” he said, noting he spent five years with a foreign exchange company because it offered the nine to five setting he needed to support his musical habits at night. But even then he would do interviews during his lunch in the boardroom. Finding his style was equally trying. “I played rock music in high school. I played jazz…one day I just start-

ed writing songs and I haven’t really looked back,” he said. Making it in music eventually means you get to start picking your own band, playing the concert halls where the talent hits the stage nine-feet above the audience’s head. While there’s a certain thrill to the big venue, like when he played the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto or Massey Hall for the Juno Songwriter Circle last month, he’s looking forward to the more intimate setting his stop at Kelowna’s Minstrel Café will offer. “Because of the size of a lot of the venues, it works better as sort of a storyteller night,” he said. Wood plays the Minstrel on Saturday, April 9.

And, like Hudson, Brown has co-released his new album in a Deluxe Edition with bonus songs highlighted by the dance club song Bomb with Wiz Khalifa “put your hands up.” Who knows, Chris Brown may even earn an extended career if he can overcome his anger problems, immaturity and overweening ego. But you sure can dance to a lot

Just prior to this, Brown had scored a huge hit with the dance club smash Yeah 3X “let me see your hands up.” (Brown uses this same line on at least three other tracks on F.A.M.E.) Meanwhile, Brown also attracted a lot of big stars to help out, especially with Justin Bieber on the pure bubble gum pop of Next To You that is bound to become another hit. Also on hand are

These two classic albums from the mid ’90s have been re-issued with three bonus tracks each while the sound has been somewhat bolstered by new remasters. I’m not sure if “remastered grunge” music is an oxymoron, but these al-

bums do sound a little better especially at the bottom end. The real treasures of these albums that straddled the ’90s are the newly released tracks. Although it is generally agreed that Vitalogy is

Founder of South African super groups “Jaluka” & “Savuka”, Johnny is a world-renowned rocker, humanitarian, anthropologist and French Knight.

Pearl Jam’s best album, it is the new material on Vs. that excites the most. Vs. has a grunge romp instrumental with Cready Stomp, an eerie David Lynch-style narrative song on a possible murder with Crazy Mary (with backing vocals from Victoria Williams) and a solid demo take of Hold On. The Vitalogy reissue also sounds improved but the three unreleased songs are simply a stripped down guitar and organ version of Better Man, an alternate take of Corduroy, as well as a mellow demo version of Nothingman. These two albums, along with the Nirvana catalogue, were among the most important albums of the Seattle grunge scene, and will prove to be catnip to hard core fans for the previously unreleased tunes. Vs. gets a B+ Vitalogy gets an A-


With the way that the major recording labels are taking it on the chin financially with the advent of various new technologies, I really don’t mind them releasing these kinds of cash cow remix albums to try and stay afloat. Recently Justin Bieber, Lady GaGa, and David Guetta, among others, have all released hit remix albums and Ke$ha’s is particularly generous at 10 tunes over 45 minutes. Ke$ha’s remake and remodel CD is subtitled I Am The Dance Commander + I Command You To Dance shows that she certainly knows her function in the pop and dance club scene. There is a cool extra bouncy vibe to Your Love Is My Drug while up-tempo hits like We R Who We R, Tik Tok (two versions), Animal and Blow all get new treatments from the likes of Andre 3000, Dave Aude, Fred Falke and DJ Skeet among others. But an added kicker for the supply and demand of this remix album is the totally new song F**k Him He’s A DJ (a much needed swipe at those that are prima donnas) makes this collection even more of a must own for true fans.

justice so I re-recorded it. I play acoustic bass on the majority of the album which will hopefully soon be a new addition to my live shows. PG: What made you choose to work with Partners for Others? Pike: By day I’m a carpenter. I dropped out of high school on the first day of second semester of Grade 12 because I’d made up my mind that I was going to learn carpentry and eventually start a company so I could have the freedom to make my music whenever I wanted. When the recession hit in 2008 the company I was working for ran out of work so I finally started my com-



ocal artists Windborn and Thomas Kjorven will team up for a dual CD release party at The House on Friday, April 8. Windborn will be releasing their first full-length album, entitled Spitting Bullets, while Thomas Kjorven will release his latest album, Home Made. Although both artists are proud and excited to release these new albums, the main focus of the night will not just be on their new bodies of work but also on raising funds for Partners for Others. This Canadian organization is committed to

addressing the needs of the poor and vulnerable, and providing the tools and training which will empower them to meet their future needs. Over the past 16 years, Partners for Others have shipped over 2.5 million pounds of donated goods to the South Pacific, Asia, the Caribbean, and Southern Africa. Partners for Others ships clothing, food, medical equipment and supplies, school books, tools, farming and industrial equipment, computers and building materials. I caught up with Jeff Pike, from Windborn, to

talk about his new album and about partnering with Partners for Others. PG: First of all, tell us a bit about your new album. Jeff Pike: The album is called Spitting Bullets which is the last song of 11 tracks. I’m very happy with the new album. I like to try to figure out how to do things on my own so that once I’ve got it figured out I’ve completely got my own style. Be-

There is a re-release of the song Radiate on the album because that song gained a lot more notice for music licensing and radio play when I released it on the EP in 2010. I wanted to do it

the founder of the charity Partners for Others and the warehouse I was building was to store all of the aid items that he collects from around B.C. before it finds its way to the landfill. After getting to know Ray and learning what he does I knew I wanted to help him out in any way that I could. PG: What do you think is the importance of those of us who are more fortunate helping those in need? Pike: I don’t like to tell people what to do with their money. But I don’t mind giving people the opportunity to do something good with their money if they want to. We live in one of the wealthiest places on earth. I think we spend too much money on stuff that we’re not going to be taking with us when we die. While we’re doing that there are people who are dying because we are throwing away things that they need to survive. Right now the Partners for Others warehouse is packed to the ceiling with aid items so we might as well ship some over there if we can. PG: If people can’t make it to the show how else can they help out Partners for Others? Pike: If people can’t make it to the fundraiser they can still contact Partners for Others at to see what they do. If we don’t reach our goal I’ll be putting the Spitting Bullets album for download through windborn. ca where people can pay whatever they want. The dual CD release and fundraiser featuring Windborn and Thomas Kjorven will be held at The House (Unit 1, 240 Lougheed Rd.) on Saturday, April 18, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door and after venue costs are covered, all money made will go to charity. CD sales will be by donation with proceeds going to charity as well. If you are interested in making a larger donation or are interested in sponsorship, everything is in place for tax receipts. For details email Jeff Pike at Pyper Geddes is the general manager at Habitat in downtown Kelowna.
