apid expansion in the number of Okanagan wineries in recent years is enough to make a wine quaffer’s head spin—even before the first sip. But, all is not lost. Judges for the spring Best of Varietal competition, the fall B.C. Wine Awards and the provincial LieutenantGovernor’s Awards of Excellence can help lead you through the jumble of labels and winery identities, varietals and wine names to the best wines to try. Tasting opportunities are also available throughout the fall Okanagan Wine Festival which wraps up this weekend. The wine festival society’s judging chairman is Master of Wine Rhys Pender of WinePlus, who says the awards are a very valuable tool for consumers to use in selecting wines to try. With new wineries popping up all over, it’s pretty hit and miss, he admitted. Although some have a good understanding of what they’re doing: of how to grow good grapes and what quality wine is, he is concerned that there are also some who make you wonder what they’re doing. “If you don’t particularly like wine, it’s difficult to make good wine,” he said. “And, you need to grow good grapes first.” See story on A3.

New wineries making a name for themselves from A1 The fall awards are professionally judged and those professional wine judges rejected about half the wines submitted, awarding bronze, silver and gold medals to about 250 valley wines. “They were harsh judges,” commented Pender. In the spring contest, local winemakers judge the wines of their peers by varietal. Results for both contests are available on the society website at: www.thewinefestivals.com The Vintners’ Quality Alliance (VQA) program is also a good tool to use in establishing that a wine has no technical faults. In the Central Okanagan alone there are now more than two dozen wineries, including more than half that are new in the past decade—and most of them popped up in just the past few years. While some produce indifferent wines, many are receiving international awards, as well as recognition provincially, for the quality of their products. And one, Volcanic Hills Estate Winery, was judged the best new winery, and received five medals for individual wines last week in this fall’s competition. The winery just opened its new building a little over a year ago on busy Mt. Boucherie Road in West Kelowna, but several generations of the family has grown apples and then grapes in the

CLOSE-UP

New crop of wineries harvesting awards for their vintages Wine from A3 The name comes from their presence on a 60-million-year-old volcano, Mt. Boucherie.

MT. BOUCHERIE

The adjacent Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery also placed in the medals at last week’s competition, bringing home three bronze and one silver. Nirmal Gidda owns

the winery with his brother Kaldep, who manages the 300 acres of vineyards, and lives in Okanagan Falls. Apple trees were ripped out and the Lakeview Heights orchard converted to grapes nine years ago, and Gidda says it was the best decision he’s ever made, even though it was expensive. He says he knew his children would not go

on to become orchardists because there wasn’t any money in it, but he is hopeful they will be interested in moving into the winery business one day. Both brothers have three children. Jim Faulkner is the full-time winemaker and the winery produces 25,000 cases a year. Only their own grapes are used in making their wines, so they have complete con-

trol over such details as cropping levels. “The vineyard plays a major role in the wines,� he comments. Gidda points to a spot beside the winery building, separate from the production facility, where he says they may, one day, build a restaurant with a view of the lake.

SPIERHEAD

Although it has only been open for a little over a year, Spierhead Winery in East Kelowna picked up three medals in the competition. Owners Brian Sprout, a Kelowna Secondary school buddy, Bill Knutson and Bruce Hirtle bring very different skills to the table, but the winery is really Sprout’s dream, fed by a decade of professionally photographing wine country

for a number of high profile area wineries, including Mission Hill, Quails’ Gate and CedarCreek. With consultation from former CedarCreek winemaker Tom DiBello, Sprout produced 500 cases the first year and 1,100 this year. The pinot noir hasn’t been bottled yet. The first grapes on the 20-acre property he bought from the Turton family were planted in 2008, and he has sourced the reds from Harry McWatters’ Black Sage Vineyard, since he only has seven acres planted so far. Because the three partners couldn’t agree on a name, it was the result of a naming contest run through the classified section of the Kelowna Capital News, and the winner turned out to be an-

other colleague from high school. Sprout actually began in the wine industry while in high school, on the bottling line at Calona Wines, from 1971 to 1973. His intention never was to become a farmer. “There’s a lot of physical labour involved,� he comments wryly. However, he is finding the farming very satisfying. He does intend to get back to doing photography as well, though. His wife, Virginia is an artist and landscaper, and they hope to hold some artists’ workshops at the facility, incorporating wine, food and art in the same events.

packinghouse on family property near Sproutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winery. Jennifer Molgat is the fifth generation of her family on the Turton property, where apples were historically grown, and where some are still grown by her father, Chris Turton. Molgat admits she was apologetic at first about the old, industrial surroundings, but many people commented favourably on the history of the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting room, so now she builds on that. The first vintage was 500 cases, but last year the View sold out all 2,800 cases. Bernard Schirrmeister is the winemaker. Molgat,who is a teacher, says she is really enjoying the sales and marketing side of the winery. The quirky label design, featuring a red stiletto heel corking a bottle of wine was actually husband Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspiration after an evening out without the kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just corked our empty bottle with my red stiletto and I knew that was it,â&#x20AC;? recalls Molgat. She now has some seven pairs and says she has to wear them everywhere because people always ask where they are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun and wine is fun,â&#x20AC;? she comments. And that has sustained her on what has been a steep learning curve, adjusting to being president of a winery instead of a classroom teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I use the same classroom skills in dealing with adults as I did with the kids. And, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extroverted, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good fit,â&#x20AC;? she laughs. The fun label is a good fit with the younger demographic she hopes to attract, and so is the use of Twitter and Facebook. But, winning awards crosses all demographic borders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve consistently done well at competitions and I believe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been good for us,â&#x20AC;? she says.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Traditionally, as a sign of gratitude, pilgrims would make huge feasts from the crops they had grown throughout the year. Thanksgiving marked a time when those who normally went without, shared their yields with loved ones and neighbours. Today Thanksgiving is a time when friends and family come together to give thanks for good food, great company, and elastic waistbands!

Two more buses added to deal with more student ridership Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The Kelowna regional transit system is getting two more buses to handle a crush of riders heading to and from Okanagan College and UBCO. To address complaints from students about full buses passing them at stops, the city has convinced B.C. Transit to agree to provide two more buses for the Highway 97 express route from downtown to UBCO and on the No. 8 route that serves Okanagan College. “This is actually a good news story,” said Mayor Sharon Shepherd, despite the fact it will cost the city an estimated $137,000 per year for the additional buses and associated 1,300 more service hours. The remaining $121,000 per year cost will be covered by B.C. Transit. Part of the reason for the increased use of local buses is due, in part, to enrollment increases at both UBCO and Okanagan College. UBCO has a city subsidized UPASS system that is mandatory for UBCO students and generates revenue for the transit system. An estimated 800 more students enrolled at UBCO this year and that will help contribute more

Preliminary hearing starts for teen murder Emotions are running high at the preliminary hearing into the death of Okanagan teenager Ashlee Hyatt. Young witnesses to the events of June 2, 2010, when the 16-year-old was fatally stabbed at a Peachland party, are at times struggling to stay composed as they offer their account. The hearing is being held to assess whether there’s enough evidence available to forward the case to B.C. Supreme court for a trial. The accused, whose name is protected because of her age, is charged with second degree murder, aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm. The hearing, which is subject to a publication ban, is scheduled to last six days and started Monday.

to the local bus system to help pay for the new buses. Coun. Kevin Craig, who is a student at UBCO, said he rides the bus to class all the time and regu-

larly experiences the crush of riders. But he said it is good to see the increase in riders. “We are the first council in Kelowna to have too many people riding tran-

sit,” noted Craig. A recent study showed ridership increased 10 per cent last year and Kelowna’s system is the fastest growing transit system of its size in the coun-

try. Still, only about three per cent of the population here uses transit. But not all councillors were happy. Coun. Graeme James said the city has “lost control” of

its bus system because B.C. Transit dictates where the buses go. Mayor Sharon Shepherd has said she wants to see an audit of the local system done.

She said members of council hear complaints about the system but there is little the city can do without B.C. Transit’s cooperation. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Chemtrail issue is put to rest by weather expert

To the editor: I sent an email to Weather Canada to get the true meaning of the assumption by your readers of planes spreading poison. Below is the answer I received from Weather Canada, specifically from Sylvain Boutot, meteorological inquiry specialist with the National Inquiry Response Team, which might settle the issue once and for all. Boutot’s response to my email is as follows: “Thank you for sending your request to Environment Canada. We receive numerous public enquiries concerning the composition and appearance of contrails and whether or not contrails pose a public health risk. Recent years have seen the emergence of popular opinions often carried by the media and seen on many websites suggesting that these visible contrails from planes are chemically laden. Hence, the term “chemtrail.” However, there is currently no scientific ev-

Delay on killing Can’t be too many candidates for election the tax bad sign for democracy

To the editor: As one of the candidates who plans to run for mayor of our beautiful city of Kelowna and contrary to what Mr. Pierce has suggested in his letter (Capital News, Oct. 4, Candidates: Think twice before jumping in), I would like to strongly encourage all 50 council and 11 mayoral candidates to hang on to their dreams and not give up. I also strongly believe that Mr. Pierce’s efforts would be far more helpful if he were to direct them at the real root of the problem with Kelowna’s civic elections, which is low voter turnout. With the same few people voting the same old way over and over, we’re getting the same results. Voting is the only true way that the average person can actually have some r -power over the government. r By having more candidates out in gthe field knocking on doors, putting up signs, talking to their friends, stirring -things up and telling people to vote, we -can hopefully get more people out to nvote. And who knows…you just might -win. , e▼ CHEMTRAILS

t

That’s why we have free elections. If people gave up on their dreams before they even started, do you think we would have ever had guys like Terry Fox or Nelson Mandela or Mahatma Gandhi? If people gave up on their dreams before they even started, do you think we would have walked on the moon? You have to believe in your dreams and you have to believe in yourself. Don’t give up, don’t surrender and don’t listen to guys like Mr. Pierce. He’s wrong. It’s not hopeless. Longshots come in, dreams come true and underdogs do win. So if you meet the requirements, you can get the 25 nominators to sign for you and if you want to run, then run! And for those of you out there who are still on the sidelines thinking you might like to give it a try, go for it. We need more people getting involved and getting engaged in the process, not less. The learning experience alone is well worth the price of admission. And vote, galdarnit! Cal Condy, Kelowna

To the editor: Another 18 months of HST proves democracy isn’t working The HST cost of $8.64 on a receipt for dog food caught my attention the other day. I thought, didn’t we vote to get rid of the HST not so long ago? Why am I still paying it? It turns out B.C. will be paying HST for at least another 18 months because the government says it will take 18 months to switch back to the GST/PST. Seriously? It took two months to implement the brand new HST; so why wouldn’t it take that long or less to switch back to the GST/PST? The reasons for it taking 18 months make no sense if one takes the time to read through the provincial government’s action plan to return the GST/PST’ at www.fin. gov.bc.ca/pst-return.htm. The bottom line is that the B.C. Liberals are continuing their own revenue-gathering agenda for 18 months in contravention to what the majority of B.C. citizens voted for. Isn’t this a perfectly simple example of our failing democracy? Lisa Masini, Kelowna

idence to support the existence of chemtrails and rEnvironment Canada cannot provide any scientific evidence. The phenomena that you are referring to are commonly called aircraft condensation trails or contrails. Airplane contrails are long white condensation trails made up of ice crystals left behind by aircraft flying primarily at high altitudes. They form when hot water vapour produced by the burning of aviation fuel cools rapidly as it comes into contact with the much colder air. The airplane’s exhaust increases the amount of moisture in the air. As the moist air cools it reaches saturation and the water vapour sublimates to form ice crystals. The cooling of the air and subsequent formation of ice crystals is very rapid so that the contrails appear almost immediately behind the aircraft. This process is analogous to seeing one’s breath on a winter day. Because visible contrails are composed primarily of water/ice, they do not pose a health risk to humans.

The appearance of contrails depends on many factors including the prevailing atmospheric conditions, type of aircraft and engine, wind direction, altitude and amount of sunlight. If the air at high altitude is very dry, the condensation trails will dissipate rapidly. If the air at high altitude is relatively moist, the contrails typically last from minutes to hours. Under certain atmospheric conditions, contrails can linger in the air for more than a day and usually grow wider and more dissipated over time. Some of these contrails change in appearance by the presence and the strength of the upper level winds. If the wind is very strong, contrails will move away from the area where they were formed, often changing in appearance and opacity as they are moving. Contrails can sometimes appear to stop and start as the aircraft encounters areas in the upper atmosphere that contain different amounts of moisture. The paths of aircrafts criss-crossing each other may explain the unusual appearance of contrails.

Increase in air traffic in the last two decades has inevitably caused an increase in the number of visible contrails in the sky, especially in the vicinity of larger airports. With respect to aircraft emissions, aircraft engines and fuel have very stringent emissions standards set by national and international organizations. To minimize the impact of aircraft emissions on the environment, these organizations constantly update their standards to ensure that aircraft engine manufacturers use the best available technology. In Canada, aviation fuel specifications are controlled by the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) which includes fuel suppliers, fuel users and other stakeholders. CGSB sets limits on all important fuel parameters and prescribes test methods for ensuring consistent fuel quality. Aviation fuel such as petrol/gasoline (piston engines) or paraffin/kerosene (jet engines) consists primarily of hydrocarbons. When the fuel is burned, the carbon combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide; the hydrogen also combines with

oxygen to form water, which emerges as steam (i.e. water vapour) in the exhaust. There have been no new fuel additives in recent years that could suggest that new foreign substances are being injected into the atmosphere by aircraft engines. Finally, the websites that discuss chemtrails contain numerous suggestions that chemtrails are a form of weather or climate modification. Under the Weather Modification Information Act, any weather modification experiments legally require that Environment Canada be formally notified. Environment Cana-

da has no such notification from any group, and has no knowledge of any weather modification experiments related to aircraft contrails. In conclusion, there is no scientific evidence, data or information related to aircraft emissions that supports the idea that contrails from aircraft are chemically laden. Similarly, there is no evidence that aircraft contrails pose a health risk. I hope that this information adequately addresses your concerns.” John Downward, Kelowna

▼ SNELSON TRIAL

Manslaughter verdict from jury Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

One of the most high profile murder trials in Kelowna’s history ended Thursday with Neil Snelson being found guilty of manslaughter. The jury of six men and six women filed into the courtroom after nearly three days of deliberations, averting eye contact with murder victim Jennifer Cusworth’s parents, who were sitting in the front row as they had been throughout the trial. Snelson, they announced once assembled, was not guilty of first degree murder—the conviction the Crown was pursuing—but guilty of the lesser charge. It was a verdict that prompted an immediate outburst of gasps and sobs from a crowd that continually assembled in the courtroom over the three week trial. Jean and Terry Cusworth appeared shaken, but strong. Snelson had a similar reaction. “The jury was satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that (Snelson’s) actions killed (Cusworth),” said defence lawyer Grant Gray, of the “unanticipated” verdict that puzzled both him and his client’s family. “What the jury was not satisfied with, beyond a reasonable doubt, was that he had the intent to kill or cause her bodily harm.” Alcohol could have been the intent-removing factor that prompted the jury to turn to manslaughter, as Justice Alison Beames made mention of it during her Monday instructions to the jury. Although, from the get-go, the case against Snelson suffered from 16 years of going cold. Cusworth’s body was found in a Swamp Road

GRANT GRAY, the lawyer representing Neil Snelson in his murder trial, is questioned during a media scrum outside the Kelowna courthouse on Thursday a jury found his client guilty of manslaughter in the death of Jennifer Cusworth. ditch, Oct. 17, 1993. An autopsy showed she’d been manually strangled, but ultimately died from numerous blows to the head from a cylindrical object, which pathologists suspected may have been a tire-iron. Evidence of sexual activity was also present. In the days and months following the grim discovery, witnesses offered everything from statements to DNA samples in an attempt to solve the crime, but it amounted to 800-plus tips that led nowhere. Snelson, it turned out, was missing piece of the puzzle. The now 44-year-old had never offered his DNA and that put him among a list of 100-plus names of those who had been at

the party Cusworth was last seen, but failed to offer DNA samples or alibis that ruled them out of the investigation. That list, in time, was whittled down to seven— two of whom still lived in Kelowna and others who lived farther away—and police went about getting a cast-off DNA sample from each of them. . By luck of the draw, Snelson, who still lived ini the city, was one of the first police tried to gain a sample from. Unlike others, however, he spotted them and knowingly evaded their efforts. In time that prompted the investigation to go a different route. And police eventually procured a warrant in the summer of 2009 that forced him to submit DNA.

He became the prime suspect and the investigation focused on whether he could be held accountable for her murder, as they then already knew the two had sex. For his part, Snelson said he had anonymous sex with a woman at the party, then he drove a few friends home and went to bed with his wife. By his foggy recollection, it would have happened midway into a party that took place between 2 a.m. and sunrise. He didn’t remember the girl, or ever think of her in the years that followed, he said. He claimed during the trial that it wasn’t until police started talking publicly about DNA evidence in Jennifer Cusworth’s cold case murder file, that he entertained the question of “what if” she was who he had sex with. When witnesses took the stand all these years later, the likelihood that Cusworth had sex at the party with a man she had never met seemed to dissipate and an image of Snelson as someone who had a very loose grasp on the truth emerged. Around 12 partygoers had been called in by Crown counsels Iain Currie and Dione Pizzey to speak to Cusworth’s whereabouts over the course of the party. Whether she was on See Cusworth A13

NEWS Cusworth from A12 the couch in the front room, or walking around the party with her arm looped around a friend, someone offered testimony about where the young woman spent her last hours. It wasn’t until around 4 to 4:30 a.m., that she disappeared from sight, only to turn up a day later in a ditch on Swamp Road. The Crown’s case also focused on incongruences. Snelson told different stories to investigators and family members about seemingly inane details, like where he parked the night of the party. Or, the order he drove his friends home. A brown 1978 GMC truck he would have driven the night of the party was one particular point of contention. In a legally taped conversation with his father, Snelson said he never had a canopy and that he hated them. Photos from his exwife showed that he did indeed have a canopy on his truck. In a conversation with his sister, Snelson said he wasn’t even sure he had a truck. There was also an issue about a belt.

f k t

Snelson said from the start that his first memory of the party was returning a belt to a friend. That friend testified that she never wore belts, and she certainly didn’t have one returned to her the night of the party. Crown Iain Currie proved he was a liar, but murder was something else altogether. No murder weapon was brought forth, and the truck that had been such a bone of contention, had long since disappeared. In closing arguments, however, Currie offered an argument that closed the gap between the two having sex and Snelson being involved with her death. He explained that the volume of seminal fluid found in Jennifer Cusworth at the time of the death could have only remained in that proportion if she hadn’t moved after sex. Currie argued that it would have left her body had she been able to walk around after the encounter, and that closed the gap between her sexual encounter and time of death to a window of 20 to 25 minutes. Neither Snelson’s or Cusworth’s family want-

ed to speak about the verdict, immediately after it was rendered. The Cusworths will make a statement this afternoon while a representative from Snelson’s church issued a written statement on Thursday:

“Our objective as a church community is to come together to support each other,” said Keith Reisdorf, pastor of the First Lutheran Church. “And we trust our faith will carry our congregation and all those involved

through this.” Snelson will appear in court again Oct. 11 to fix a date for a pre-sentence hearing. A manslaughter conviction carries a wide range of sentencing, from a suspended sentence to life in prison.

the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, where Jeff Bryde worked. Bryde went on a hunger strike and picketed BCTF last week because he objected to seeing apples from Washington State being sold by the co-op. The co-op owns BCTF. However, his statements led to confusion among employees, consumers and growers, who then complained to the coop.

Doma said only one to two per cent of the BCTFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual business involves importing apples to sell in B.C., and that is only when there are no local ones available to market. Never are those apples sold as B.C. apples, and never do they replace B.C. apples, he said. They are only used to fulfill orders from customers until local product is available.

Otherwise, BCTF could lose a customer, which would lead to increased costs for the growers who own the co-op and could harm employees as well, he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this for decades. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not new,â&#x20AC;? said Doma. The confusion is causing the industry â&#x20AC;&#x153;irreparable harm,â&#x20AC;? he said, which is of particular concern to an industry that is already under severe stress from

global competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is obviously misinformed and he is business illiterate. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the business,â&#x20AC;? said Doma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a community-based organization. Our packinghouses are at the heart of our communities.â&#x20AC;? B.C. apples are also sold to Washington when they are short, he said. Contrary to Brydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contention that he is protesting in order to support

the industry, what he is doing is having the opposite affect, Doma said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, this will clarify the issue for everyone, including himself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still hopeful he reconsiders what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saying,â&#x20AC;? he said. His statements are inflammatory and full of inaccuracies, Doma said, but so far no other action has been taken against him. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Okanagan Basin Water Board reduces its annual budget Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

While budgets for operation of many public bodies are increasing, the Okanagan Basin Water Board this week approved a budget for the coming year that is a reduction of 7.3 per cent from the previous year. Executive-director Anna Warwick Sears said the drop in the $3.449 million budget is due to a greatly improved management system for the sewage facilities grants program. She said the board did an exhaustive review

of each individual grant this year, so they can be budgeted with great precision both now and into the future. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also improved financial software being used. As a result of this, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will also be able to increase earned interest because we can establish short-term, highyield investments to hold the requisitions before the grants become due,â&#x20AC;? she explained. The OBWBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial services are handled by the Central Okanagan Regional District, where the board offices are located, including administra-

tion of the sewage facilities infrastructure grants program, accounts payable and employee payroll and benefits.

Information Technology systems and support, phones and photocopiers have not increased. For property-owners, the tax requisition will be 5.7 cents per $1,000 of assessed values, down from six cents last year. In addition to sewage facility grants, the board also is responsible for control of Eurasian Water Milfoil in the basinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main valley lakes and water management services such as the WaterWise education and outreach program; a new program for stream flow monitoring; expanding the groundwater monitor-

ing network; developing new water quality projects with UBCO researchers; training water utility staff on use of the new water use reporting program; and developing a process for valley-wide drought management. The OBWB is made up of board members from the three regional

districts in the Okanagan Valley. At this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly meeting the board also asked staff to draft a letter to the B.C. government encouraging protection of Rose Valley Reservoir. Board members said they were concerned lands around reservoirs should remain in public hands to

Plans had been made long in advance for a trip over a high elevation pass and now it looked as if it would be an unpleasant trip. At this time of year, any trip out of the valley involves climbing to higher elevations, where snow could become a factor at any time. So, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be prepared, by wearing appropriate clothing and making sure warmer jackets and boots are with you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, for goodness sakes, leave the valley in sandals, expecting it will be just as warm and sunny higher up, unless warmer footwear is with you, for instance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a good idea to carry such emergency items as blankets, matches, candles, a flashlight, water and even emergency rations in case youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck in a storm. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a particular concern if your trip takes you off the well-maintained highways and into the backcountry, where the likelihood of a weather emergency is more acute with the lack of traffic.

of Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease are recurring episodes of vertigo that last anywhere from 20 minutes up to 24 hours, tinnitus (typically low-pitched with Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease), a feeling

Our inner ear contains a fluid that helps us to maintain our balance and equilibrium. With Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease there are changes to the volume and the composition of this inner ear fluid, causing problems with the healthy functioning of our ear and affecting our hearing and our balance. These changes to the ear fluid may be caused by improper fluid drainage (either because of a blockage or because of an anatomic abnormality), abnormal immune re-

Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease is considered a chronic condition, and treatment focuses on management: relieving symptoms and minimizing the long term impacts of the disease. Treatment includes motion sickness or anti-nausea medications for the vertigo, diuretic medications to reduce the amount of fluid in the inner ear, medication injections to the inner ear to relieve vertigo, hearing aids, and rehabilitative exercises to help improve balance and coordination. Surgery may be con-

sidered in severe cases. In Chinese medicine, Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease is classified as a type of dizziness. There are important lifestyle factors that contribute to its development. Emotional strain, which can be caused by too much stress or by anger, frustration, or resentment, can lead to health imbalances that over time can lead to chronic conditions such as Meniereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Overwork or pushing ourselves too hard without adequate rest over years can also deplete the body and lead to health issues. Diet is another important factor, as unhealthy eating particularly the excessive consumption of greasy foods or dairy products or poor or irregular eating habits lead to problems down the road.

Because Western medicine has difficulty treating this condition, often people are looking for effective options to help manage the disease. The good news is that acupuncture can help to relieve the symptoms of Meniere’s disease and may also help to improve

or resolve the condition. Over time and with continued treatments, acupuncture may also help to resolve the condition. The combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be of particular benefit to the condition as herbal formulas can help to aug-

ment the results of acupuncture. Due to the chronic nature of this condition, Meniere’s may be slow to treat and may take time to achieve lasting results. James Kaufman is a Registered Acupuncturist in Kelowna. www.okanaganacupuncture.

Garden Contest was held at the unH2O Xeriscape Demonstration Garden at the H2O Aquatic Centre. This coincided with the first anniversary of the opening of the garden. The contest, open to all residents of the Central Okanagan, had 20 entries from Peachland to Rutland. I was excited to see the tremendous variation and creativity in the gardens. Some had been growing more than two years but most were quite new. Many are works in progress with success in one area leading to plans to do more. All entrants were encouraged to enter again next year to show their further progress with xeriscaping and the maturing of their gardens. Entrants commented on how their new gardens surprised them with big water savings and reductions in maintenance time. All were very excited with the results of the conversion to xeriscape. Most said they entered because they wanted to share their experiences to help others make the

Coming to grips with the need to erase Third World poverty

Donald’s, their new development would seek to end starvation (and more importantly, generate profit) in Third World countries by recycling hamburgers in their Post Consumer Waste Recycling Program. If I could help solve world hunger by eating a hamburger, I wanted to know more.

In essence, those in developed countries would eat a McDonald’s hamburger, and their feces would be fed to those in Third World countries, since roughly 80 per cent of the food’s nutrients still remain. This was, of course, a joke, but it was intended to reveal some hard truths about society.

Thankfully, many students voiced their objections, one of them being the fact that we feed our cats and dogs better than this. Bichlbaum responded by saying, “The reality is that we already treat people in the Third World far worse than we treat our domestic animals.” As much as I didn’t

want to believe that this truth applied to me, the evidence in my life makes it impossible for me to deny it. I spend excessive amounts of money on lattes at Starbucks while nearly one billion people in the world are starving. I think and speak like I care about these people, but I don’t live like it. The more I reflect on these inconsistencies in my own life, the bigger this question becomes: How can I be so numb to this devastating reality that I am not moved to do anything about it? This also raises a second, more important question: How do I eliminate this apathy and take action? Part of the answer to this may be realizing that starving people are not just part of a statistic; they are real human beings. Chances are you have

probably seen many pictures of malnourished people and several World Vision programs on TV, and heard or made some kind of comment at the dinner table about how a starving person from Africa would love to eat your unfinished meal. I laughed at a comment like this for the first time when I was six years old, so regaining sensitivity to this issue is challenging. However, there may be a more befitting response to this issue than laughter. The most important part of this response is action, because eventually the emotions wear off while starvation continues. A simple Internet search can lead you to countless organizations and programs that are seeking to end this problem. See Krogel A25

KLO Middle School awarded $1,000 grant for Kokanee Run project One lucky Central Okanagan school has been awarded an environmental grant for their participation in the annual Kokanee Run. KLO Middle School had the highest participation rate of the seven Central Okanagan schools that participated in the run along the Mission Creek Greenway on Saturday, Oct. 1. The school will use the $1,000 grant to fund an environmental project that will benefit the student body and the community. Students will present the results of their project at next year’s Kokanee Run. This is the first year that the grant has been offered for the highest

school participation in the event which raises funds for the Friends of Mission Creek Society. The environmental grant was provided by Roy’s Shoes on Ellis Street and Green & Bear It and Robertson’s Clothing, both in Kelowna’s Mission area. Regional Parks Interpreter and run organizer Alison Campbell Urness said: “The society is instrumental in the ongoing preservation and protection of Mission Creek and work along the Greenway. “We were also excited to be able to offer the environmental grant for the first time and to be able to attract younger runners to

the Greenway. “We’re eager to learn how KLO Middle School will use the funds and to watch the progress of their project over the course of the school year.” Regional Parks and the Friends of Mission Creek Society will formally present the funds to KLO Middle School at a future date. The Friends of Mission Creek Society and rgional parks services will continue to offer the grant as part of future Kokanee Run events to help foster environmental stewardship in youth and to support environmental school initiatives. Urness also thanked the Running Room in Or-

chard Plaza for its ongoing support for the event.

Sponsoring a child is a common way to get involved, perhaps because of its efficacy. For the cost of a T-

shirt or a few coffees each month, you can give a real person food, long-term skills, health care, and education. Even if you can’t end starvation for all 925 mil-

lion people, you can end it for one. Amber Krogel is a Grade 12 student at Kelowna Christian School.

Aircraft technician shortage presents career opportunities Demand from A26 with the non-mechanical parts of the aircraft. These types of mechanics select, measure, cut, bend, form, heat treat, seal, fabricate, fit, inspect, paint and refinish parts and components to aircraft specifications. They also assemble parts and components and sub-assemblies, using special jigs and fixtures. AMEs in this field work with aluminum, titanium and the stainless steel structure of the aircraft and other components such as windows, lenses and the plastic parts you see inside the plane. To put it in perspective, these mechanics are responsible for the assessment, planning and implementation of fabrication and repairs on an aircraft. Most often they would work for a maintenance repair and overhaul company, such as Kelowna Flightcraft, or they would be working with other aircraft technicians and mechanics repairing airplanes. Right now there are

approximately 3,070 of these structural aircraft maintenance engineers working in the province of B.C. Annual salaries for experienced AMEs are better than average at $58,571. There is currently a demand for these types of mechanics as many older aircraft consistently need to be serviced and repaired. Some 840 job openings are projected in B.C. for the 2010 to 2015 period due to retirements and industry growth. According to BC Work Futures, there has been significant growth in the province’s aerospace industry. The Transportation Career Development Association of BC is expecting shortages of AMEs to rise to close to 20 per cent in the near future. Currently Okanagan College is accepting applications to both of these programs, which start on Feb. 6, 2012. The AME-S trades program is 37 weeks and classes run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. out at the Kelowna Aerospace Campus. The

AME-M trades program is at the Okanagan College Vernon Aerospace campus and is 15 months long with a short period of study to be completed at Northern Lights College in Dawson Creek. If you are interested in the AME-S program, and want to have a first-hand look at the industry, the

College is hosting an information night with an industry-tour of Kelowna Flightcraft on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Okanagan College Kelowna Aerospace Campus, 5655 Airport Way. During the Flightcraft tour, you will be able to see just what kind of work

Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

These days it’s hard to knock the smile off Josh McEwan’s face. Not because the Kelowna native is playing his final year of junior hockey in his home town, in front of friends and family. And not because he’s back home this year after playing for a different hockey team in a different city every year since he was 16. No, McEwan is smiling because he is about to embark on a life-changing trip that will have a direct impact on the lives of children in the third-world nation of Cambodia. “This past seven months has been the most fun I’ve had in my life,” said McEwan, one of three hockey playing brothers (Josh and Joey are the others). “I’m smiling because I’m happy to know there is hope, not only for myself and everyone in Kelowna but also for kids in Cambodia.” McEwan, his father, and a group from the Kelowna-based organization Be A Hero, are leaving for Cambodia later this month on a trip called Break the Cycle Cambodia. They will cycle 144 kilometres in one day, raising money for several projects to help children and women rescued from the sex trade. It’s not an everyday kind of thing for your average 20-year-old. But it doesn’t take long to figure out that Josh McEwan isn’t your average young man. “When I first heard about this trip it really hit my heart at a whole different level,” he said. “I thought we had to stop talking about it. People

can talk a lot but the action is where things really happen. I look at my lifestyle today and I have food everyday and water everyday. Over there to make money some parents are selling there kids. I thought ‘we’re so fortunate for what we have over here that why not do something.’” So McEwan is putting his hockey season on hold to travel to Cambodia for two weeks, attempting to raise $20,000 to go towards building safe homes for kids who have been sold into the sex trade. Prior to trying out for the Kelowna Chiefs this year, to close out his junior hockey career in his home town, McEwan informed the Chiefs of his plans. The only way he was going to play was if his trip wasn’t affected. No problem for Chiefs coach Ken Andrusiak, who said it’s an extension of the leadership abilities that McEwan brings to the Chiefs. “It’s an opportunity for our kids to see what commitment is all about,” said Andrusiak. “This is for the benefit of all of our players to see what you can do if you really care about something. Sometimes this kind of thing seems lost on this generation of kids. This is about benefit to the community and that’s really what we’re trying to teach our players.” McEwan and his father will leave Oct. 26 for Cambodia and return on Nov. 4. There will be an information booth set up at the three Chiefs home games before they leave on Oct. 8, 14 and 22. The goal of the group is to raise $200,000 while the McEwan’s have set the

For Josh McEwan taking part in something as admirable as this project has opened up a selfawareness that sounds as if it could lead to many more charitable causes. “Sometimes inside of

me I feel like I have something special, I want to tell everyone and I want everyone to be part of it because we can make a difference in people’s lives,” he said. “That’s one of my main focus’ in life, to live more of a lifestyle of

t’s been a long two weeks of preparation for the Okanagan Sun and the Vancouver Island Raiders as the best two teams in the B.C. Football Conference hit the field on Sunday in the final game of the BCFC season with first place on the line. But for two teams that consider themselves the cream of the crop in the BCFC, the past two weeks has seen the spotlight taken away from the players as managers, staff, owners and directors have been so busy taking shots at each other that it seems they’ve forgotten what really matters. And here we thought that junior sports was supposed to be about players, about helping them achieve their goals and helping them to be better people. Well, if players from either team have been reading what’s been said by both sides prior to this match-up they are learning more about mudslinging than respect and fair play. Finger-pointing, name calling, trash talking and all sorts of accusations have been aired. Not by the players. No, by the adults on both sides of the ball. And it’s coming right from the top of each organization. What we haven’t heard enough of is how good the game will be, how talented some of these young men are, how much work they put in or where this could possibly lead them in their football careers.

Kevin Parnell other. And that’s too bad. Players and coaches on the Okanagan Sun and the Vancouver Island Raiders work extremely hard. They practice, they watch film, they live, eat and breathe football. And I’m sure they do it because they love the game, they hope maybe it will lead somewhere, they want to compete and they want to win. And the Sun and the Raiders do win. All the time. That’s the problem with the BCFC. There are only two good teams and that’s the way it’s been for years and years. Sports leagues are only as strong as their weakest link. Perhaps the Sun and Raiders should work together to strengthen the six team league. As for Sunday, it should be a great game. Finally the players will be front and centre. Once again in sports the adults took the spotlight away from the players. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised at that. But it would have been nice to see someone take the high road and be the better organization. Good luck to the players on Sunday. That’s who we should be talking about. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

SPORTS ▼ WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Heat hits the hardwood The UBC Heat women’s basketball squad played its first batch of CIS preseason exhibition games and learned a lot about the level of competition the team will face this season. On Sept. 29, the Heat played the Trinity Western Spartans at the Langley Event Centre, dropping the game by a final score of 62-56. On Friday, the Heat had a tougher time against a talented Cascades team from the University of Fraser Valley falling 7136. On Saturday the UBC Heat and the UBC Thunderbirdsscrimmaged

in Penticton at Penticton Secondary. “These games were huge learning opportunities,” said Heat head coach Heather Semeniuk. “We got a good look at the level of competition we will be facing and will now go to work on things that we need to improve on and bring up to that level. “We need to continue to train hard and improve. These teams are deep, athletic, talented and big. We can’t afford mental lapses from physical fatigue, we have to have the strength and conditioning to allow muscle memory to per-

form,” Semeniuk added. Against the Spartans, freshman Emily Kanester and Angela White led the team on offense with 15 and 10 points respectively. Friday night vs the Cascades, guards Madison Kaneda (11 points) and Kanester (8) were the only Heat players to score consistently. The Heat will be heading to Calgary from Oct. 14 to 16, where they’ll play in the Mount Royal tournament. The women’s team does not have an exhibition game on their home floor this pre-season.

Unbeaten Rockets head south for two games in Washington Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Granted, it’s only three games into the season, but the Kelowna Rockets stand alone as the only unrdefeated team in the Western Hockey League. Expect the club’s early run of prosperity to be put to the test this weekrend as the Rockets (3-00-0) head south to Washington to take on the TritCity Americans Friday in Kennewick, before visiting the Chiefs Saturday in Spokane. “Those are two very hard buildings to play in,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “Both teams tplay with good pace and good tempo, and they’re both skilled. It’ll be a test for our guys.” As for the club’s start to the season, Huska is pleased but is hesitant to read too much into the first three victories. “It’s really early, some teams have played six games already, so we’re really just getting going,” said Huska. “However, it is a lot nicer to have three

wins at this point than three losses.” The Americans (4-20-0) will be looking for a measure of revenge Friday night after losing 4-3 to the Rockets Wednesday at Prospera Place. Kelowna built up a 4-1 lead through 40 minutes, then leaned on 20-year-old goaltender Adam Brown who made 29 saves, including a number of key stops in the final period. Tyrell Goulbourne paced the Rockets attack Wednesday with a goal and an assist, while acting captain Colton Sissons scored for the third time in as many games. Spencer Main and rookie Tyson Baillie each add-

ed their second markers of the season. In addition to the solid goaltending, Huska said it’s the play of the Spencer Main-Tyrell GoulbourneCody Chikie line has been key in team’s early success. “They’ve been really good for us, our most consistent line,” Huska said. “They’re playing the right way and really doing things well away from the puck. They’re committed to playing hard and you can’t ask much more than that from your players.” The Rockets next home action is Wednesday, Oct. 12 against the Medicine Hat Tigers. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Schlender, Kleibrink rinks win in Vernon Rob Schlender learned the price of patience at the Twin Anchors Houseboat Curling Classic—exactly $8,000. Trailing New Westminster’s Brent Pierce by a point with three ends to go, the Edmonton skip bided his time, blanking the sixth and seventh ends before stunning his opponents with a three-ender in eight to secure a 5-3 win in his Twin Anchors debut Monday afternoon at the Vernon Curling Club.

Pierce, backed by Kelowna third Jeff Richard (skip stones), second Kevin Recksiedler and lead Grant Dezura, looked to be in control in the final end with three stones protecting a partially covered rock in the house. A gorgeous come-around tapand-roll behind cover by Lemishka changed the complexion of the end. Facing three Schlender stones, Richard came up short on a final desperation shot to try and force

an extra end. “We didn’t really play our best in the final, all the way through. It was a pretty sloppily played final by both teams, but they just happened to get the break in the final end,” said a disappointed Pierce, whose rink collected $6,000 as runners-up.

WOMEN’S FINAL

Amy Nixon was at times overwhelmed subbing as skip of Team Kleibrink. Lisa Eyamie, expecting her second child in March, was at times tired as the late draws wore on. Both Calgary skips excelled under adversity and made the women’s final in the Twin Anchors Curling Classic in Vernon. Nixon stopped Eyamie 8-3 in six ends to pocket $7,500. Eyamie settled for $5,500. “I’m just relieved,” said Nixon, who with Kleibrink in Hawaii recuperating from surgery, added 2010 Olympic silver medalist Carolyn Darbyshire to her front end. “For me, it’s almost been humorous today that we have continued to roll and I had a great team in front of me. They saved me a number of times today when I wasn’t all there, struggling, and I’m really fortunate to have a chance to play with them.” Bronwen Webster, who played third, and Chelsey Bell rounded out the championship foursome in a field of 24.

WARRIORS FORWARDS Brett McKinnon (right) and Max French go on the attack against the Vipers in BCHL action Wednesday in Vernon.

Warriors settle in at home The Westside Warriors launch a six-game BCHL home stand with two contests this weekend at Royal LePage Place. On Friday night, the Merritt Centennials will pay a visit to West Kelowna, followed by the Chilliwack Chiefs on Saturday. Face off both nights is 7 p.m. The Warriors (4-2-0-0) are coming off their first shutout loss of the season on Wednesday night, as they dropped a 2-0 decision in Vernon. Facing a Vipers team known for stingy defence, Westside fired 25 shots on goal but was unable to beat netminder Danny Todosychuk, who was named the top star of the game.

Westside netminder Steve Racine also had a strong showing, allowing just one goal on 29 shots against. The Vipers struck for their game-winning goal midway through the second period, when Darren Nowick neatly deflected a Ryan Renz slappass into the top corner of the net during a Vipers 5-on-3 advantage. The Warriors tried vainly for the rest of the game to find an equalizer, until Vernon captain Pat McGillis sealed the victory with an empty-netter with 24 seconds remaining. “They just keep us to the outside” said Warriors forward Dru Morrison of the Vipers’ team defence,

adding “they don’t let us penetrate towards the net—and we can’t force our way in there.” With the win, the Vipers retain a perfect 5-0 record, and jump into sole possession of first place in the BCHL Interior Conference.

WARRIORS TRADE

The Warriors have dealt 18-year-old forward Tyson Witala to the Prince George Spruce Kings for future considerations. Witala, a Prince George native, played in three games with Westsisde this season, scoring a goal and adding an assist. He played in eight games with the Spruce Kings as an affiliate player last season.

CLOSE CALL…

Heat women hold own in first year of CIS competition The UBC Heat women’s volleyball team turned a few heads last weekend by placing third at the Lea Marc Volleyball Challenge held at the University of Winnipeg. The eight-team tournament was set up as two four-team round robin draws with the top two teams from each pool advancing to a semi-final. In the Heat’s first match on Friday, they dropped the University of Regina in three sets (25-21, 25-23, 25-20). The second matchup of the round robin was t just 45 minutes after the completion of the Regina match and saw the Heat really hit their stride winning again in three sets against the University of Toronto squad, (26-24, 25-19, 25-14). With first place in pool play on the line, the Heat went to battle against the host University of Winnipeg Wesman in an early Saturday matchup. r The home team definitely came out swinging right from the onset and finished off the Heat in five sets (19-25, 2225, 25-23, 25-22, 6-15). Outplayed in the first two tsets the Heat did not yield stretching the match to a full five. “I give full credit to our players,” said coach Steve Manuel, “they dug down deep and found ways to win the third and fourth sets.” The Heat finished round robin play at 2-2, earning a matchup with the University of Manitoba Bisons, as they ripped through their pool with three wins. The Heat played a great semi-final against a

tough University of Manitoba team eventually falling in four sets (17-25, 1425, 25-19, 21-25). “We definitely showed that this was our first CIS semi-final,” Manuel added. “Manitoba gave us a warm welcome to the big leagues, they peppered us with a barrage of kills from their fifth year national team middle blocker and their veteran fifth year power hitter.”

Function is one thing. Performance another.

The Sunday morning bronze medal matchup ended up being a battle of the young guns as both coaches started with very young lineups. The youthful UBC Heat prevailed over the University of Brandon Bobcats in four sets (23-25, 25-15, 26-24, 25-20). “All in all it was a great weekend for us,” comments Manuel. “We are learning an incredible amount about what it takes to be competitive in Canada West.” UBCO’s Myrte Schön was named to the tournament all-star team. The Heat host a large high school girls tournament this weekend at UBC’s Okanagan campus, then it’s back on the road to play in the West Coast Classic hosted by UBC and Trinity Western on Oct. 14-16.

Local golfer comes in 2nd Two Eagles pro Dean Claggett finished in second place at the PGA of B.C. Club Professional Championship. Claggett’s two round score of 3-under 141 (7071) this week in Richmond left him two strokes back of winner Dan Swanson of the Guildford Golf Course. Swanson, who picked up $2,400 for the win, went 69-70 to finish at 5-under par. Claggett pocketed

$1,650. Halfway through the final round, Swanson rolled in a 40-foot putt on the par-3 ninth hole to hold a two-stroke lead over Claggett at 6-under par heading to the final nine. On the 13th, a twoshot swing resulted as Swanson bogeyed and Claggett birdied tying for the lead heading to the final five holes. Both leaders would bogey the difficult par3 14th hole, but a Clag-

gett bogey on fifteen hole would have him trailing by one. Claggett had to settle for par after missing a short birdie putt on the 17th hole, leaving Swanson a one stroke lead going to the 18th and final hole. On the back of the green in three on the par5 18th, Claggett’s birdie attempt from the fringe slid by, giving Swanson a chance to two-putt to capture the championship by two.

Yochim evolving as a kick returner Until last week, second-year Okanagan Sun defensive back Robbie Yochim had no idea who James Green was. It wasn’t until then he learned that the former Sun running back/defensive back, who now plays for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, is the Canadian Junior Football League’s single season and career punt return leader. Green, who played with the Sun from 2001 to 2004, was a threat to score every time he touched the football, and while Yochim may still be a step away from that type of talk, he just may not be. That ability has some within the Sun ranks suggesting he has the potential to put up Greenlike numbers in the next couple seasons with the brown and orange. After a solid rookie season, the RSS grad has taken his kick return game to a new level in 2011. As he has progressed into a full time defensive back, his ability to stick like glue to an opposing receiver seems to get better every week. Two weeks ago he turned his second quarter interception against Kamloops into a spectacular 32-yard return for a touch-

ENTERTAINMENT Entertainment IN THE LOOP LIVE MUSIC PAVLO’S worldwide tour to promote the release of his latest album, Six String Blvd, brings him to Kelowna CommunityTheatre to play a concert next Tuesday, Oct. 18. CONTRIBUTED

▼ IN CONCERT

KCT offers positive vibe for Pavlo Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

He may have more energy than five men, more bravado than a matador in London and a passport full of stamps, but for some strange reason Kelowna Community Theatre is Pavlo’s “favourite place in all of Canada.” Either that or he’s done more promo interviews than all of the indie bands coming for next week’s Pop Okanagan music festival combined. “I love the Okanagan. I love Kelowna. I love the theatre. I can’t wait,” he declared in interview for his upcoming show. The Greek Canadian guitar player and singer is billed as “the most successful independent artist to come out of Canada,” per-

forming 150-plus shows per year. And in all seriousness, he shows he’s got energy to spare the second he gets on the phone. Growing up in Toronto, he says, his father made sure he had access to whatever musical instruments he wanted to try and the work ethic to appreciate them. “If I wanted a piano, he got me a piano. If I wanted a guitar, he got me a guitar,” he said. The game plan worked. Now nine albums into his career, Pavlo says he still loves his chosen vocation as much as the day he started. “I play all over the world these days. For me, I love to play; whether there’s 800 people there or 10,000, it’s all good. The fact that people have spent their hard-earned money to spend two hours with me,

I’m going to give the best show I can.” Of course, there are the days he spends playing for people who might rank a little higher than the average Joe on the impression scale, as well. Pavlo has played for Prince Charles, for example, as one of only eight artists selected to do so on his Canadian tour in 2001. He’s also friends with a musical cast of Toronto players that include singer-songwriter Amy Sky and Canadian tenor John McDermott, and will regularly jump in on a studio session or onto a stage when requested. That’s the beauty of really knowing how to play your instrument, according to Pavlo. “We don’t make computerized music. There’s no lip synch-

Pavlo

ing here,” he said. “Sometimes a song is supposed to be three minutes, I’ll make it 17 minutes. It’s very exciting.” Like Keith Urban, who wowed audiences at the South Okanagan Events Centre, Pavlo too gives away a guitar at every concert, and this visit, he’s also giving audiences a sneak peak at a brand new album. Pavlo’s “Six String Blvd” will be released Tuesday, Oct. 18, the day he plays the Kelowna Community Theatre. He will be touring Canada, the U.S., Germany, the U.K., China, India, Singapore and South Korea.

TRAVEL ▼ HILO

Hawaii’s Big Island city finally gets its day in the sun Gary A. Warner CONTRIBUTOR

HILO, Hawaii—“Hilo — it is what it is” probably isn’t a tourism slogan that would get a thumbs-up from the Big Island city’s chamber of commerce. But I don’t mean it as a put-down. It’s just advice from a longtime visitor who loves Hawaii’s “second city.” I also know the worst thing anyone can do for Hilo is to try to oversell it. No one is going to spend a weeklong honeymoon in Hilo or plan a Wall Street corporate retreat or a championship golf tournament there. That’s all over on the other side, the rocky brown Kona Coast, with its 10 inches of rain per year and $400 per night megaresort hotel rooms. Hilo, on the other hand, is a place often defined by its deficiencies. No famous gourmet restaurants, no luxury hotels, no postcard-worthy beaches. It’s more often wet and gloomy compared with the west side. Rain? Count on it. More than 125 inches a year. But it has something you won’t find while strolling the T-shirt shops over in Kailua-Kona. “Hilo is more relaxing and down-to-earth,” she Wilma Kuamoo, a waitress at Ken’s House of Pancakes, a locals hangout. “In other places, I think people have lost the Hawaiian spirit. They don’t have time to stop and talk. They’re too busy. Hilo isn’t that way.” Hilo is getting a boost, or maybe a test, with Continental’s new nonstop

service from Los Angeles. It’s the first West Coast nonstop to Hilo since 1983. Previously, visitors to Hilo had to fly to Honolulu and change planes (and often terminals). The planes pull up to the oversize Hilo International Airport, a remnant of a 1970s attempt to spur tourism to the area. Tourism archaeologists can visit Banyan Drive, which seems caught sometime before the 1980s. The trees that flank the curving parkway have plaques to the famous visitors who were honored with a tree planting during their visit. Babe Ruth and Amelia Earhart are on the drive. The most recent famous name is Richard Nixon _ when he was running for vice president in 1952. The names underscore the reality that Hilo has become a tourism backwater in the past half-century, ever since the airport in Kailua-Kona meant that visitors to the big resorts no longer needed to make a stop in Hilo on the way to two weeks of lounging at the Mauna Kea or Kona Village. But the very things that Hilo isn’t _ slick, pricey, touristy _ make it a draw for Hawaii vacationers looking for a different experience. Disney recently opened a resort on Oahu, and more than a few commentators have riffed that the resort is unnecessary because tourism, the islands’ No. 1 industry, has already turned them into one big theme park. Hilo has been eclipsed in popularity by the Kona side. The Big Island is big

HILO offers visitors a wilder and less developed side of Hawaii, somehting described as more relaxing and downt to earth by the locals.

_ you could fit all the other islands inside it and still have lots of room. On the west coast, visitors drive long distances to get to a “destination” resort where enough greenery has been planted and watered to make you forget that you are on the brown, rocky flank of an old volcano. Seeing the west side from the air is known to give vacationers “Kona shock,” an affliction that hits when you realize the weeklong vacation destination looks more like the moon than a tropical

paradise. Once inside the resort gates, the irrigation and gardeners can hide it all pretty well. That’s not a problem in Hilo. All that rain may be a nuisance, but it makes it the garden side of the island. Hilo, while it has places for tourists, is a real town maintained for locals. Its green hills and waterfalls are perfectly in tune with the lush Hawaii of most travelers’ imaginations. Nature has been Hilo’s greatest strength and its weak point. The crescent-

shaped bay sits at the foot of two volcanoes, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. They are close enough that in the past century, lava has licked repeatedly at the edges of town. But it is the ocean that has twice ravaged Hilo. The recent disasters in Indonesia and Japan have only added to the public interest about the killer waves of the kind that have smashed the area at least five times since the early 1800s. Hilo was struck in 1946 and again in 1960, the latter flat-

tening the downtown, which was moved back several hundred feet from the water’s edge after the second tsunami. Hilo has turned its sometimes deadly relationship with nature to its advantage. The city is the jumping-off point for tours of Kilauea, the most active of the island’s volcanoes. The lava and smoke have steadily moved away from Hilo in recent decades, though as late as 1984, lava from the currently dormant Mauna Loa made it to the out-

TRAVEL Hilo from A39

My favorite stop in Hilo is Liliuokalani Park, out near Banyan Drive. Though it is named after Hawaii’s last queen (overthrown in 1893 by a coterie of businessmen who later pushed for U.S. annexation), it’s actually a Japanese garden with red arch bridges, stone lan-

tin roofs, are the real deal. Hilo was, above all, a port, and it attracted fishermen and workers from around the world. You’ll find the usual Hawaiian mix of Japanese, Chinese and Filipino. But here there are also bits of Russia and the Caribbean, Portugal and the Midwest of the U.S. The big annual event in Hilo is the Merrie Monarch Festival in April, which celebrates David Kalakaua, the last king of Hawaii, who reigned from 1874 to 1891. Kalakaua tried to roll back many of the restrictions on traditional Hawaiian arts imposed by European missionaries, who arrived on the islands after Captain James Cook’s “discovery” of the islands in 1778. The Merrie Monarch Festival has parades, hula competitions, food fests and arts displays. It’s the only time of year when getting a room in Hilo can be a chore, I’ve found. Foodies and people who like to eat should try to time a visit to include the twice-weekly farmers market. Farmers truck in local fruits _ papayas and mangos are the best—along with macadamia nuts that the region is famous for. You’ll also find pastries and produce, cheeses and mushrooms (another outgrowth of Hilo’s famous rains). It’s held at the corner of Mamo Street at Kamehameha Avenue. The Suisan fish auction was a longtime early morning tourist draw, but it’s no longer held. For fish, head to the Seaside Restaurant and Aqua Farm. It’s not the prettiest spot in the islands for dinner, crowded between some industrial buildings near the airport. But it’s a place to try moi, the traditional Hawaiian fish once reserved for the kings. It was kapu _ forbidden _ for any commoner to eat it. While Seaside’s version won’t make me forget the moi at Mama’s Fish House in Maui, it comes at about a third of the price. Whether you find it inspiring or depressing, a visit to Lyman Mission House is important to understand the West-

ern influences that were brought to the islands. It’s the home of Hilo’s first missionary, David Lyman, and reflects how it would have looked in 1854. The house is a mix of here and there _ built in a New England style that wouldn’t be out of place in a Massachusetts village green, but with tropical koa wood floors. The house has interesting exhibits on local history, along with the flora and fauna the missionaries and those who followed discovered or brought to the area. The nearby Haili Church also looks like it was beamed in from the Boston area, circa 1857. By the 20th century, commerce had added ethnic as well as religious diversity to the area, which is manifested by the Taishoji Soto Mission, a Buddhist temple erected in 1913. There are two choices for those who want to see what all that rain does besides fall on your head and car roof, and make flowers bloom. Rainbow Falls, on Waianuenue Avenue, is a five-minute drive from downtown. “It’s best on a clear morning, when the sun hits the water just right and you get the rainbow effect,” said Sheryl Omori, who helps run Extreme Exposure, a shop in downtown Hilo that sells art-quality, large-format nature shots. But if you are up for a short drive and short hike, head to Akaka Falls State Park, a half-hour or less north of town. The falls tumble 420 feet into a narrow gorge. This is that lush Hawaiian fantasyland that people crave _ and you won’t find it on the Kona Coast. Visitors can get an OK look from up top, but the best vantage points are found by taking the trail for better viewpoints. It takes 20 minutes and can be quite steep.

Wine and dine in Washington State’s Yakima Valley area

t

Brian J. Cantwell CONTRIBUTOR

PROSSER, Wash.— tAn adventurous crowd of foodies surrounded me at the Desert Wind winery’s long dining table. As we started in on the fried green tomatoes, we noticed a garnish nobody recognized: what looked like little yellow cherries topped by tiny corn-husk winglets. The little wings were swept back as if part tof our salad course was ready to join the kestrels soaring over the nearby Horse Heaven Hills. Was that husk edible or not? Should we ask? “I already ate mine,” confided Sheila, a Seattleite sitting next to me. OK, I confess, I had, too, washing it down with the suggested wine, a crisp Wahluke Slope sauvignon blanc. The husk was, uh, crunchy. “These are what we call ground cherries,” announced our host, Chef Frank Magana. “They rgrow on a bush like a tomatillo. I peeled back tthe husks to look like bird wings. The husk won’t hurt you if you eat it, but normally we don’t.” Ah. This was Desert tWind’s monthly, anyoneis-welcome Supper Club, and it served to spotlight a

big trend in wine-country tourism: helping visitors enjoy wine together with local food. The Yakima River’s fertile valley and surrounding sun-toasted hills, the birthplace of Washington’s wine industry—still producing nearly half the state’s wine—is the perfect venue for uniting local wines with the abundance of fresh vegetables, tree fruits, meats and cheeses that come from just up the road. It’s tourism with an emphasis on the “mmmm.” Yakima Valley winemakers capitalized on the trend this summer, publishing a deck of recipe cards on which 34 wineries matched one of their wines with a favorite recipe, often from the family running the winery. For example, Fries Family Apple Cake is paired with the family’s Desert Wind riesling. Wineries took turns in July and August offering tastes of their featured dish and wine to tastingroom guests. It’s the kind of thing you can expect more of here. “For us it was a good choice, because while there are lots of great winemaking areas in the state, the valley has so much bounty (of food) as

well,” said Barbara Glover, director of Wine Yakima Valley, an association of winemakers and grape growers. “Our fruit-forward wines have flavors that pair really well with food.” I sampled the featured recipes at Prosser’s Vintner’s Village, a onestop wine lover’s haven just off Interstate 82 that’s home to 10 modern tasting rooms plus a wineand-food bar called Wine O’Clock. Milbrandt Vineyards

served baba ghanoush, a smoky eggplant spread on toasted pita bread, paired with ruby-red grenache. Gamache Vintners offered a playful peach and riesling smoothie, made from peaches grown next to their vineyard. Promoting the wares of farming neighbors came easily for winery folks such as Tara Divers, tasting-room manager at Milbrandt. And you can meet Buggirl. Insects of all kinds fascinated Stacey Gingras

as a child, thus the name of her business, Buggirl’s Garden. The Prosser native is a regular vendor at the market, and also delivers produce to local wineries and restaurants. Besides Milbrandt’s eggplant, she provided the green tomatoes and ground cherries for our Desert Wind dinner. “It’s just a lot of fun,” Gingras said. “I’ve been working with Frank (Magana) for about three years. If he has a special event and has a recipe in mind, he’ll call and ask if

I have something. Green tomatoes? I’ve got green, red, whatever you want.” And the ideas flow both ways. “I’ll call up (a chef) and ask, ‘How about some radish silique for the salad tonight?’ It’s a funnylooking bulbous seed pod that’s crispy but has a cool taste also.” Winemaker’s dinners, with those adventurous diners, are perfect for the occasional novelty produce that Gingras likes to mix with the standards such as green beans

or squash. “The audience I have, I can introduce something like that and I know they’ll love it,” Magana said. “We talk with Stacey once a week, and we even go out to her farm. We want to know our farmers as much as we know our winemakers.” Those efforts are bringing repeat customers, such as Joe and Shari Neuenschwander, of Issaquah, who came to the Desert Wind Supper Club last month for their third time since summer 2010.

NEWS ▼ THANKSGIVING

Sweet potatoes add a little spice to traditional dinner I must admit to have always taken a particular shine to Thanksgiving weekend. I suppose my love for the festive day of thanks spins back to my childhood and fond memories of my family (complete with Grandma and Grandpa Atkinson) gathered around the table to chow down on a scrumptious dinner. Dad and I were always on our best behaviour at such times, which

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge meant a period of temporary peace in the Hodge house. Everyone enjoyed the dinner, except of course the turkey. Aside from the family

gathering, the other significant memory of this particular weekend was that my mom and I would spend the earlier part of the day traditionally harvesting in the bounty of fresh grown vegetables in the yard. Mom believed Thanksgiving weekend was the perfect time to haul in the various veggies such as spuds, corn, squash, etc. I maintain that tradition to this day—and

look forward to digging in the dirt this weekend. Among the many gifts of the garden I anticipate unearthing on Saturday and Sunday is my experiment at growing sweet potatoes. ‘Experts’ say you can’t grow them here, but my box of them (covered in black plastic to keep the soil warmer than normal) may provide some gems. *** Since there is an election coming up (just

in case you somehow missed that reality), that means this is my second to last column until after the day of voting Nov. 19 as I will be running again for city council. Therefore, I’ll take this chance to remind you of a few top notch events. On Oct. 21, the very worthy fundraising dinner event for Ozanam House takes place. All funds raised at the dinner will go toward the facility’s rehabilitation

programs, which directly benefit clients and help them return to independent living. Ozanam House is a 19-bed supportive housing project located in central Kelowna for men struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues. They operate the transition house for local men who would otherwise be homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless. The house has been in operation for almost five years, during which time they’ve have helped more than 175 men. The group’s slogan is to “provide our clients with a home, health and hope.” Ozanam House is owned and operated by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, an international organization committed to serving the poor and underprivileged in local communities. For further info call Doug Brown at 250-8780045. *** Meanwhile on Nov. 26, my seventh annual Night of the Arts concert/ silent auction takes place at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Headliners this year once again include Day Late and A Dollar Short, Robert Fine and the Dreamland Band, Deb Stone, and Cowboy Bob among others.

A ‘surprise’ popular Okanagan band to be named soon is also expected to close out the evening. Day Late is an amazing bluegrass band, Robert Fine and his Dreamland Band are simply superb, Deb Stone is a dynamic vocalist that can rock any theatre and Cowboy Bob play all the great hits from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s. This year, Metro Central on Water Street is the beneficiary of the many musicians and artists donating their time. Metro Central is crafting a super silent auction event. For more info contact myself at 250-979-7254. With the spirit of Thanksgiving in the air I also want to send very sincere and special wishes to four close friends who are currently dealing with some significant health issues. Sean Connor, Barry Urness, Al Paterson, and Howie Meeker are each dealing with health challenges. I am amazed by each of them for their positive attitude, determination and grit. Hopefully, we will all connect within the next few weeks for a pint or a coffee and share more laughs and lies. I love you guys. Looks like the bottom of the page is nearly here…so I’ll see you next week.

High-tech Hemi Charger delivers ‘old school’ performance Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

That thing got a Hemi in it? Sa-weeeet! It was a tag line from the early Dodge Hemi TV spots that seemed to capture the zeitgeist before fuel prices really got out of hand. Raw power was good, and this potent V8 engine, with its hemispherical combustion chamber, had it in spades. And by early, I don’t mean during the 1950’s when this engine appeared in the Chrysler New Yorker, Imperial and 300B. Nor am I referring to the legendary 426 Hemi of the mid to late sixties that powered the Plymouth Barracuda and Roadrunner, Dodge Charger, Challenger and Super Bee. I’m talking mid last decade, when these commercials, featuring a couple of yokels in an old Plymouth Duster, were hyping the company’s latest version of the Hemi which was beginning to show up in the Ram, 300C, Charger and other offerings.

Although these spots lent an oafish, comical air to the product, make no mistake today’s 5.7-litre Hemi, with its FuelSaver Multi-Displacement system that shuts off four cylinders under light load, is anything but unrefined. As are the cars powered by them, like the allnew 2011 Dodge Charger ñ my tester for the week. In terms of technology and capability, it is light years ahead of its predecessor. All-new for 2011, todayís model is inspired by the second-generation (1968-70) Charger with cues like the dual-scalloped aluminum hood, large bodyside scallops starting in the front doors, and the classic Coke bottle profile. Still, the current-generation Charger isn’t as true to the original as todays Challenger but that’s not a bad thing. While the 1970 model had a longer and leaner silhouette, todayís car, with its higher beltline and much shorter front and rear overhangs, appears more stable, more

rooted to the asphalt. And it doesn’t have a set of ungainly rear leaf springs in full view. All that heritage stuff aside, the 2011 Charger does make a bold impression both coming and going, with its large chromeon-black split crosshair grille, flanked by sinister projector-style headlamps, and from the rear, with its wide stance, LED taillamps, available decklid spoiler, and dual exhausts housed within the black rear fascia. I did like the original modelís wide, black grille with hideaway headlamps, but Iíll assume it didn’t fit in with Dodge’s now signature look. For 2011, the Charger comes with two engine options. The new 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 (available in SE, SXT and SXT Plus models), replaces a couple of smaller sixes. It delivers a solid 292 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque, which is a significant bump from the 2.7-litre engine’s 178 hp and 190 lb/ft, and the 3.5 litreís 250 and 250. My tester, the top-trim

CONTRIBUTED

THE ALL-NEW 2011 Dodge Charger takes its cues from the second-generation (1968-70) classic. Note the

dual-scalloped aluminum hood, large bodyside scallops in the front doors, and the classic “Coke bottle”side profile. R/T AWD ($39,995 plus options), gets the aforementioned 5.7-litre Hemi V8. While I’m impressed with the Pentastar’s output, having driven it in other vehicles, the Hemi proves there’s no replace-

ment for displacement, delivering 370 hp and 395 lb/ft of torque. Itís quiet when idling, with just a hint of burble, but stomp the pedal and it belts out a throaty exhaust note that only big V8 can

deliver. That along with enough juice to launch this full-size car from rest to 100 km/h in under six seconds. Having access to this kind of power and torque in a rear-driver is a joy in

nice weather, but a pain on slippery roads, even with today’s technologies that include electronic stability control with traction conSee Charger B2

All-wheel drive helps Charger deliver goods Charger from B1 trol and hill start assist. My tester delivered the best of both worlds with an all-wheel-drive system that employs an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system. It works seamlessly in the background, disconnecting the front axle when AWD is not needed. Not only does this improve fuel economy, but provides the driving dynamics of a RWD vehicle for more spirited handling. And if you’re so inclined, you can even turn off the traction control. There’s still a pile of safety tech worth mentioning in the 2011 Charger, features undreamed of in the original. Aside from standard equipment like four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and brake assist, not to mention seven airbags, there’s ready alert braking and rainy day brake support, which helps dry the rotors by lightly applying the brake pads. There’s still plenty more performance stuff to talk about, such as the R/T modelís 3.06 rear axle ratio, but in the interests of space, Iíll refer fellow gearheads to the Dodge web site. For those considering the Charger for purposes other than accumulating a mitt full of speeding tickets, it is worth noting that this vehicle is quite civilized if you resist the urge to mash the accelerator. Chrysler and Dodge interiors, for example, have moved upmarket and the Charger is no exception. My tester was equipped with Nappa leather seating, heated front and back, and with eight-way power front seats; leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, with matching faux leather inserts in the doors. Overall, there’s good use of soft-touch materials, chrome and aluminum accents, along with fit and finish that is as good as many premium sedans I’ve driven. And the abundance of standard and available technologies for this model puts it on par with just about anything in its segment. The list is too long to print here, but a sam-

pling of standard content for the R/T AWD includes keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, steering wheel cruise and audio controls, heated and cooled front cupholders (these really do work), driver information centre, tilt/telescopic steering, sixspeaker premium audio system and Uconnect 8.4inch touch-screen infotainment centre, which integrates audio, handsfree phone and texting, climate control and system settings, along with available Garmin navigation and rearview camera. I found the Uconnect system easy to work and to read, which is no small thing for those of us now wearing reading glasses. HVAC controls were intuitive, and with the large rear display (and available parking sensors), it was a breeze to back into tight parking spots. I would invest in this latter feature, as rear visibility is otherwise trimmed by the trunk-mounted spoiler. The list of option groups and their features is nearly as long as the standard equipment, making it impossible to fully cover. Some of what was included in my tester, which had enough options (with destination charges) to push the price just shy of $45K, are the following: rain-sensing wipers, upgraded 506-watt ninespeaker audio with subwoofer, seat memory, power pedals and steering adjust, heated steering wheel, navigation, adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning, blind spot and cross path detection, and ParkSense rear park assist. Indeed, there is no shortage of available nanny technologies, all of which work just fine. But if you’re in city traffic or constantly in and out of busy parking lots, the incessant warnings can fray your nerves. Fortunately these can be disabled. Leg room is abundant for all five passengers, although the sloping roofline can make head room tight for tall passengers in the rear. Seats are wide and supportive, and the quiet cabin and reasonably pliant ride would make long road trips a pleasure for all.

From seemingly out of nowhere here was a full European sports sedan with rear-drive from a company that’s never, to my knowledge, built a rear-drive passenger car. That is until now. With an eight-speed transmission coupled to a turbocharged, direct fuel injection V6 producing a potent 390 hp and 393 lb/ ft of torque, the GT Concept has wonderful, liquid lines. Where the rearview mirrors should be, there are slender stalks with a rear-facing TV camera that reproduces the images on small monitors at each side of the A pillars. The front bucket seats seem to float above the floor and access is through large French-style doors on either side. The amount of thought and planning that must have gone into this is daunting. But, to my great surprise, instead of taking up to a year or two to go from a drawing to the mockup, it took something like eight months to produce the finished product. “We got the approval around last Christmas,” said Kia Chief Designer Peter Schreyer with a hint of a smile. This is the third time I’ve interviewed him, not because he is currently THE hot designer, but because of his candor and readiness to answer any question. The interview took place on the second day of the Frankfurt show. All the big reveals had been done the day before and the designers from other firms were long gone. But Schreyer was working the journalists. We met with him at 3:15 p.m. and he still had two more interviews lined up. “I do it because I want to promote the brand,” he said. “It’s important that you tell about the design language and how it is reflected in each car.” As for the GT Concept, there is more than just one car in there. Without committing Schreyer said a coupe and/ or cabriolet is possible. If he shortened the wheelbase, I asked, could we expect a sportscar? Again he just smiled. “For some time now I have been asked when is Kia going to have a halo car,” he said. “The GT Concept, I think, puts that to rest.”

Getting a Charge out of the Volt

2011 BMW 328i xDrive Executive Edition

Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

Call it car guy sentimentality, but I’ve always tfelt that automotive affairs tfollow the same stages as any relationship. There’s the initial introduction – all mood lighting and limited grabbing, usually at an automotive show. Then there’s the awkward first date when you get to know each other a little better - probably during the automotive launch rand subsequent short test tdrive. But all the while you are wondering the usual tquestions about compatibility and a possible longterm relationship. What’s it really like? Can I live with it? Will my mother like kit? f I was about to find that out as I arrived at GM Canada to pick up the 2012 Chevrolet Volt. The Volt is an electric car. It houses a 400 lb-plus 16kWh lithium-ion battery that provides 40-80 km of electric-powered range. The battery recharges in four hours through ta 240V source or in about 10 hours through a regular 120V wall outlet. GM tdecided on the size of the battery and its capabilities based on surveys

that determined that up to eighty percent of commuters would fit within that range. “Great,” you’re thinking. “What happens when go beyond that range and run out of power?” Well, you don’t. And that is the genius of the Volt’s extended range engineering. You see, the car also harnesses an 85 hp 1.4-litre gasoline engine that couples with a secondary electric motor to regenerate enough electricity to power the vehicle for another 500 km. Or for as long as the gas in the tank holds out. In theory, you could drive this car like any other normal vehicle, filling up with gas, and never plug it in again. But that would be just plain stupid and I was eager to find out just how much I could minimize my weekly fuel bill by plugging in overnight. Would the premise live up to the promise? First, George from GM gave me the walkaround. And it struck me again how good-looking the car is, smooth and sleek with slippery aerodynamics rivaled only by GM’s first EV1. The rear end is aggres-

MOTORING ▼ CHEVROLET VOLT

The modern day electric car with over-the-top techno style Volt from B5 sively styled with an almost Camaro-like aura of machismo, and black panels contrast the body colour in a handsome twotone treatment that garnered compliments all week, based on esthetics alone. The Volt has an elegant modernity that reflects its unique abilities without resorting to the over-the-top techno styling eccentricities of some

adolescent science experiment. Inside, you’ll find tech-nerd heaven with a variety of display screens and a unique console that sets the Volt apart. The T-shaped battery, running down the centre of the car like a drive tunnel, forces a four-bucket seat layout. Second row space is limited. Like many compacts, the Volt serves best as a couple’s car with occasional rear seat use only. Looking

back through the hatchback gives a split-window rear view a la Honda CR-X or Pontiac Aztek (the last time I will mention that vehicle in comparison). The rear cargo area is reasonably roomy (300 litres) with cubbies and fuse access on the sides and a floor panel that folds up to reveal the 120V removable charger, a compressor (no spare tire) and access to the batteries. Familiarization over, I

left GM Canada, the electric motor whirring as quietly as a golf cart, the battery fully charged with a 65 km range reading. I topped up the tank with 66 cents worth of gas for an accurate fuel economy test. The drive home from GM Canada is almost exactly 100 km and I watched the EV range tick down until the gasoline engine kicked in at 67.8 km. If you pay attention when that gas en-

gine starts you can detect a thrumming vibration but the transition usually seems seamless. The Volt is astonishingly quiet, the only sound coming from air drag and the low-rolling resistance tires hitting the pavement. There are very specific circumstances at highway speed when that gas engine will directly assist the powertrain but you won’t notice and those technical details are better explored online than in this short re-

all fuel efficiency average of 2.18L/100km. A few last quick facts. The battery warranty is for 8yrs/160,000km. Sample electricity costs per full charge average $0.84 in Quebec, $1.14 in B.C., and $1.34 in Ontario but utility prices will vary. The Volt lists for $41,545. Provincial incentives reduce the price by $8,230 in Ontario, $7,769 in Quebec, while B.C. is still thinking about it. And, speaking of incentives, in many jurisdictions, the Volt is a free pass into the H.O.V. lanes. That fact alone might make the Volt worth its weight in gold to urban commuters. Now, whenever new technology debuts you will hear naysayers who love to whittle everything down to whether or not “it pays for itself”. But based on that philosophy, I guess I should never have owned a sports car, taken a vacation or had children. Yes, the charging infrastructure is still in its infancy but the Volt is an able performer, a scientific milestone on the road to sustainability and a product that has to be weighed in the balance against personal attitudes and convictions. It does offer environmentally conscious consumers a viable electrically powered alternative, it reduces emissions and gasoline usage and it is definitely a more ecological commuting choice. And I think your mother would like it too. It could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

view. With the engine running the generator over the last 22 km, my total fuel usage over the 100 km drive home was 1.6 litres. Pretty good but you can see why the car was designed for those predictable commuters. The more you drive on gasoline-generated electricity, the higher your fuel consumption average will creep. This car wasn’t really meant for me because, as a news photographer, I drive from assignment to assignment, beyond simple two-way commuting. But somehow, on the second day, I did even better, plugging in at work whenever possible to replenish the battery, managing a 110 km day of pure EV driving, and using no gas at all. On Day 3, I drove it like I’d stolen it. I had almost depleted the battery the day before and did not charge it overnight. I was trying for a worst fuel economy scenario. And I was trying hard, power mode set on sport, air conditioner pumping away, flooring the pedal gleefully at every opportunity. This car may have been designed for techsavvy early-adopters but even performance buffs would raise an eyebrow at the Volt’s wheel-spinning acceleration. There’s plenty of snap off the line, poised smooth and sure handling, and enough mid-range oomph and passing power to please. I could probably have applied myself further with an added load of luggage or with all the seats filled with fatsos, but the worst mileage I managed that day averaged out to 6.8L/100km. Even when you’re pushing the limits, the inherent hybrid traits of regenerative braking and idle-stop ignition mitigate fuel usage. During the rest of the week, I returned to sanity and with prudent plugging in and frugal driving, my grand totals, not counting my single day of idiocy, worked out to 654 km, using only 14.3 litres of fuel, for an over-

MOTORING

Chevrolet goes super-Sonic with its latest compact car offering Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

QUEBEC CITY: Chevrolet has big plans for its smallest car, the 2012 Sonic. It is forecasting a 30 per cent growth in Canada in the small car segment by 2015. Chevrolet has thus set a goal of doubling rits current market share to 17 per cent. There’s no stronger market in North America for small cars than Quebec and no better place to launch the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic than Quebec City and it was amazing thow many people noticed tit during the press launch there. Sonic replaces the sub-compact Aero which, while a solid seller, never took off in the hearts and minds of North Amerticans particularly those to the south. GM-owned Deawoo in Korea has supplied a host of compact and subcompacts like the Optra but the new Sonic will be built in Michigan. Sonic will be available as both a sedan and hatchback with a starting price of $14,495 for the base LS sedan and $15,495 for the LS hatchback. Standard across the board are six air bags.

Also found on all Sonics is OnStar with Directions and Connections making this the only small car on the market with a standard navigation system. Bluetooth, power door locks, remote keyless entry and Hill Hold Assist also are standard. Air is a $1,150 option on the LS but standard on the LT and LTZ. The mid trim Sonic LT sedan starts at $16,495 and the hatch starts at $17,495. Later in the year we see the turbocharged LTZ arrive with a starting price of $20,495 for the sedan and $20,995 for the hatch. Optional on the LS and LT is the $465 Peace of Mind package that adds four extra airbags (knees and thorax) for a total of 10 airbags. The LS and LT both are powered by a 1.8-litre inline, four-cylinder producing 138 hp and 123 lb/ ft of torque. This engine features a two-stage variable intake manifold that delivers up to 90 per cent of peak torque from 2,400 rpm all the way up to 6,500 rpm. Standard transmission is a five-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic. The LTZ is a whole different kettle of fish with a 1.4-litre inline, fourcylinder with a turbochar-

ger embedded in the exhaust manifold. It produces 138 hp and 148 lb/ft of torque that comes in at 1,850 rpm. The only transmission is a six-speed manual. Chevrolet is claiming the LTZ will deliver 5.1L/100 km highway fuel consumption with class-leading acceleration when paired with the 1.4L Turbo and six-speed manual transmission. The 1.8-litre is listed at 7.7/5.6L/100 km city/ highway for the manual and 8.3/5.5L/100 km city/highway for the automatic. The LTZ gets 7.3/5.1L/100 km city/ highway with Chevrolet claiming this is the best highway mileage in the segment. The LTZ won’t get the six-speed automatic until next year. All versions have MacPherson struts with coil springs and stabilizer bar at the front with a torsion beam compound link type rear suspension. It is a pert design with a high beltline and low roofline that accentuates the adornment-free body sidelines. The hatch has the black-coloured rear door handle grafted into the black C-pillar that combine to give the five-door a sporty three-door look

f

heightened by the exposed, motorcycle-inspired rear taillamps. Design details that improve the look of the new Sonic include chrome grille surrounds and matte black honeycomb grille inserts on all models, while a range of wheel sizes, including 17-inch alloy wheels, reinforces its sporty flare. For those who want to individualize their Sonic, Chevrolet is happy to oblige with a wide range of add-ons such as a ground effects package, special wheels, body color spoiler, front fog lamp kit and an array of body wraps. You can chose one of the standard designs or supply your own graphics. 3M, which supplies the

body wraps, will do it up and apply it at the dealership. The instrument cluster is motorcycle inspired centering on a large digital speedometer display. The interior includes storage compartments in the centre stack and doors. The rear seats fold flat for carrying larger items. Front bucket seats are standard and heated front seats are available. The front seats have a long travel but rear legroom is at a premium with the fronts all the way back. I drove the LTZ hatch and sedan (both manual) and was a passenger in an LT automatic. I don’t know why but the sedan felt bigger on the inside than the hatch

even though it is the other way around. But the facts speak for themselves. Cargo volume in the sedan is 397 litres (14 cu ft). The hatch has 539 litres (19 cu ft) behind the rear seats and a total of 869 litres (30.7 cu ft) with the seat folded. The ride and handling were tuned by Corvette engineers, who dialed in electronic power steering, GM’s StabiliTrak stability control and rollover sensing control. The result is a better than expecting experience and a world away from the previous generation Aveo. On rambling roads and byways along the south shore from Montreal to Quebec City, the turbo went on boost almost im-

mediately and pulled a lot stronger than you’d expect from just 1.4-litres. The six-speed manual felt more like two, threespeed transmissions with one for in-town power and the other for highway cruising. I rode back to Montreal from Quebec City in a 1.8-litre LT with automatic. Here it was heavy highway traffic all the way with lots of road construction (it’s Quebec after all). While they have the same horsepower, the extra torque of the LTZ is more substantial. However, I think we’ll see a majority of Sonics being sold as the LT with automatic simply because many equate a turbo to higher fuel consumption.

MCANULTY, ANNA IMELDA Anna Imelda McAnulty (née Glancey), Diploma of Art (Edinburgh); teacher training (Craiglockart), Born 15 June 1922, Bathgate, Scotland and Died 4 October 2011, Winfield, BC. Predeceased by her beloved husband James McAnulty (August 2009); survived by her five children, Catherine Mori (Brian), Jerry McAnulty, Nicholas McAnulty (Tracy), Adrian McAnulty (Julie) and Greg McAnulty (Michele); her 11 grandchildren, Michael, Greg, Tyler, Adrian, Sean, Chris, Lisa, Carmen, Kyle, Nicole and William; her three great-granddaughters Meeghan, Akira and Isla. Born in Bathgate, near Edinburgh, the youngest of 4 children, Imelda started Primary One (Scottish Grade One) at the age of 3 years, 3 months and thus graduated from high school at the age of just 15. Her mother, a primary school teacher, had no childcare for her and just brought Imelda with her to work. From an early age Imelda loved animals and longed to be a veterinarian. Her mother persuaded her to pursue her love of art and become a teacher to assure herself a steady income. So, Imelda attended Edinburgh Art College, then teachers’ college and began her career during the war years. As it happened, Imelda was an extremely gifted artist and excellent teacher: not only to her students but above all to her 5 children. Though Imelda eventually gave up painting and drawing, till very recently she was a sharp art critic. Her fondness for beauty and style and her love of animals and gardening were always her hallmark. Her life started in Scotland and ended in the Okanagan, places quite disparate in culture and climate. After a long career at St Thomas Aquinas School in Edinburgh, Imelda emigrated with her husband to Saskatoon with four children, including newly-born twin boys. As we trekked across the country to White Rock (where her last son was born), Toronto, Trail, Kelowna and Oyama, our mother awakened us to the richness and variety we saw on our trips through the landscape and culture of North America. Our beloved mother died peacefully at her nursing home after a short illness. Requiescat in pace. The family would like to thank the staff of Lake Country Lodge for the loving care they took of her over the past year and a half. They treated her like their own mother and made us all welcome when we visited. The funeral will be held at St Edward’s Church in Winfield on Saturday, October 8 at 1.00 p.m. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com Funeral arrangements are under the direction of FIRST MEMORIAL FUNERAL SERVICES (762.2299).

showcase W REAL ESTATE SALES

September saw some upswing in the housing market The Central Zone of the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board reports that September saw sales improve on all property types in the Central Zone, improved both over the same month last year and for the previous month of August. During September, overall sales improved

25.42% over last year (to 296 units from 236) and were up 3.4% from August (286), with sales volumes of $121 million compared to $94.7 million in 2010. Total residential sales last month climbed 25.23% compared to September 2010 (to 278 units from 222)—up 7.33%

over August (259). Single family home sales rose 16% over last year (145 compared to 125)—up 9.84% from the 132 homes sold in August. Inventory was up slightly (0.14%) over 2010 (to 4,986 units from 4,979), but new listings for the month were down

4.7% from last September (832 compared to 873). “The market in the Okanagan-Shuswap is beginning to stabilize as autumn unfolds, especially in the Central Zone with the bump-up in sales during September and steady activity over the past few months,” said Kent Jorgenson, a Kelowna real-

“Most segments continue to hold their own while the recreation and investment sectors remain sluggish, being most impacted by opportunities south of the border, and Canada’s slower than anticipated economic recovery and modest job growth” Overall, Jorgenson said demand in most B.C.housing markets has cooled along with lagging consumer confidence. “Belt-tightening and apprehension about making big purchases has continued as ongoing concerns over personal debt load, net worth and employment are being influ-

‘‘

MOST SEGMENTS CONTINUE TO HOLD THEIR OWN WHILE THE RECREATION AND INVESTMENT SECTORS REMAIN SLUGGISH… Kent Jorgenson, Kelowna realtor enced by news of American economic uncertainty, global instability and equity market volatility.” He said serious buy-

ers are looking for wellpriced properties, recognizing that now is the time to buy while there is still an ample selection of homes and room to negotiate, and while low interest rates continue to positively impact their purchasing power and determine the home they can afford. The Central Zone of OMREB covers an area from Peachland to Lake Country and east along Highway 33 to Westbridge (including the Christian Valley). The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board is comprised of 1,122 member realtors and 91 real estate offices.

Options to consider when buying a lot If you are looking to purchase a lot to build a new home right away or for sometime down the road, there are different purchasing options available to buyers. For instance, it’s is a little known fact that a mortgage can be placed on land that doesn’t have a structure on it. There are financial institutions that will allow you to purchase a lot/acreage with as little as 25 per cent down. For example, if you purchase a lot with a val-

ue of $200,000, the minimum down payment will be $50,000, leaving a mortgage of $150,000 that can be amortized over up to 25 years. Interest rates will vary, depending on the type and term of the mortgage, but generally the rate is higher than a lot with an existing home on it. Terms can be for interest only payments or blended monthly payments, depending on what your intentions are in the future. It may be possible to purchase that prime lot and still own your home, as long as you qualify based on the financial institution’s credit granting guidelines. In most cases, the lot/ acreage must have services, such as power and sewer, or have them available nearby. If purchasing an acreage, most financial institutions will base the value of it on five acres but there are some that allow the value to be based on 10 acres. Again, in most cases the property must have services to the land. In most instances, the property should be in an urban area within a close distance to a city having a population base of 25,000 or more. Exceptions to that may apply. Some fees from the lending institution may

apply. HST will be paid on the purchase value of the land. If you own a home and have sufficient equity in it you may be able to borrow (against your existing home) the 25 per cent down payment or full amount of the lot purchase. For example, a home is valued at $400,000 and the outstanding mortgage is $200,000. If that homeowner wishes to purchase a lot with a value of $200,000, requiring a down payment of $50,000, to satisfy the 25 per cent down payment required. You down payment could be derived from the equity in the existing home. Again, all land buyers should understand they have the availability to place a mortgage on the property they wish to buy.

Proximity to amenities makes Black Mountain development attractive option ers, how have you noticed the development industry change over the last few years?

We also help buyers build their dream home

by offering final touches such as HD movie theatres, hot tubs, soft close drawers, heated ensuite flooring, gas patio heaters and more.
