Strict bail conditions for alleged drug smuggler Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The two West Kelowna men facing charges relating to a cross-border cocaine bust last year lived up to one of the terms of their release Thursday, by not interacting with each other once during a morning appearance before the court. Barry Michael Ready, 50, and Clifford Montgomery, 33, sat silently in a Kelowna courtroom as Tariq Aslam— the third charged with conspiracy to import cocaine and possession for the purpose of trafficking— received his bail conditions from a prison video link. Aslam was picked up by U.S. authorities in October, after the fruit grinding machine that concealed a massive quantity of cocaine was uncovered by police. He was granted release on $200,000 bail and a number of conditions. Upon release, he will be subject to 24 hour house arrest with electronic monitoring. He can only leave to go to and from work, to his lawyer’s offices, the courthouse or to visit the doctor or hospital for an immediate medical emergency and with written permission to do food shopping. He is not to have contact with his co-accused or a number of other people. He may not have a cell phone, pager or Blackberry, unless it is for work and he has the written permission of his bail supervisor. He can’t leave the province without permission and has been ordered to turn in his passport. As well, he must report weekly to his bail supervisor while waiting for charges to be dealt with through the courts. In addition to working out Aslam’s release, the trio learned their next step in their court journey will take place Feb. 24, and a date for the trial could tentatively be set four days later on Feb. 28. The local men were arrested last October after border officials found 97.5 kilograms of cocaine inside a fruit grinder, from Argentina, that was destined for Kelowna. Mounties made a controlled delivery of the machine See Bail A6

Semester decision draws rare appeal Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Secondary School Parent Advisory Council has gone above the school district superintendent Hugh Gloster’s head in appealing his decision to change the school’s timetable to

the board of education. In an apparently unprecedented move Wednesday evening, PAC president Sandy MacKay told the school board she wanted to invoke a clause in the School Act generally used to give parents a last-ditch bargaining effort on the fate of a single

student to have the superintendent’s decision overruled. “We are here because a very reasonable group of people have been put in a very unreasonable position,” she said. The PAC contends the superintendent did not communicate the school

district’s decision to move the high school onto a semester timetable from a linear one, in line with every other school in the district, in an effective enough manner that parents could reasonably mount an opposition to the move. The school board has since held several con-

sultation meetings on the matter. Earlier this week, the school board adjusted the original decision to see a graduated form of semester system in which Grade 10s would switch to a semester system and Grade See Appeal A6

▼ SLED DOGS

Rally to honour slain canines Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The grisly fate of 100 Whistler sled dogs sparked an outcry across B.C., and now Kelowna animal lovers are organizing an event to lay their anger to rest. “It was such an emotional thing and it’s affected all of us, so we wanted to take emphasis off the man who did it and put it back on the dogs,” said Brenda McBurnie, owner of Doggytopia and co-organizer of a walk dedicated to the canines. “We don’t want the dogs to be forgotten. It’s not a protest, we’re not looking for donations, it’s a no-pressure walk. Just show up and honour the dogs.” The walk will start at the downtown sails 11 a.m. Sunday, and participants will carry on through the boardwalk and back. “Even if someone wants to walk for five minutes, just to honour the dogs, that’s OK,” said McBurnie. While there are only a few dozen confirmed participants on the Facebook page that’s set up to inform people of the event, McBurnie said she’s received a ton of feedback and she believes hundreds could head out that day. If that’s the case, it could prove to be the positive side of what’s been deemed a tragic event. “The amount of emotion out there shows there’s a lot of love for dogs,” she said. “It’s beautiful that people are outraged. And maybe they will respect their canines even more.” The dogs were killed by a sled dog operator with the use of a gun and knife over two days last April. The issue came to light when WorkSafeBC processed a report for post traumatic stress syndrome, from the man who slaughtered the dogs. To learn more about the walk, go to the Facebook group Public Dog Walk to Honour Slaughtered Sled Dogs, or call 250-712-0899.

Botched house burglary ends up as assault with weapon charge A 28-year-old Kelowna man suffered cuts to his head and arm after he was attacked during an apparent break in to his residence. Police received an

abandoned 911 call at around 10:40 p.m. on Wednesday night. In responding to the call, police were told that one of the residents had been attacked by an

unknown man that had broken into the residence. Witness believed that the suspect may have used a hammer and possibly an edged weapon during the attack.

Police attended the residence, in the 1800 block of Baron Road, to investigate and also attended the Kelowna General Hospital where the victim had been taken by

a friend. The victim suffered non life threatening injuries that required surgery to repair. Police located and arrested the 42 year old male suspect in Lake Country a

few hours later though no weapons were recovered. The Kelowna resident will face a charge of assault with a weapon. Police say their investigation revealed that this

was not a random incident, and that the victim and suspect were known to each other. The suspect is well known to police for past Criminal Code related offences.

Show Of Hearts telethon

STAFF REPORTER

A smiling and happy 10-month-old, you would never know little Matthew Hartwick has a long list of unique internal health issues, has already had one open heart surgery and is headed for another. The Kelowna infant was at Kelowna General Hospital this week to undergo an EKG for one visit and be given a special vaccination shot during another in a continuation of hospital visits for the blond-haired, blueeyed baby boy. “He seems to have a pretty easy going nature and we hope that will continue,” said his mom Christine Hartwick. “He’s pretty happy even though he’s been poked and prodded so much.” Sure enough, Matthew doesn’t enjoy having a dozen wires hooked to his little body. It’s nap time and there is a crowd trying to hook him up to the machine that will test his heart. Matthew was born with a very rare and complex congenital heart defect. Due to a genetic hiccup, the anatomy of his heart is different from a healthy heart. During his first open

The 2011 Show Of Hearts Telethon in Support of the Variety Club will take place this weekend, from Saturday, starting at 7 p.m., through to Sunday, wrapping up at 6 p.m. The telethon is broadcast by Global TV. Every year, more than 2,700 volunteers donate their time and more than 1.5 million viewers donate funds to make the telethon an incredible success. The show is hosted this year by the Global BC news team as well as Sesame Street alum Bob McGrath and others. Last year’s Variety Show of Hearts Telethon raised $7,431,869.

Matty.” The Hartwicks learned that Matthew had a heart defect 25 weeks into Christine’s pregnancy. It was news no parent wants to hear. They worried about how the family would manage and cope when Matthew was born. “Before he was born we thought, ‘How are we going to handle this?’ But you just do. Sometimes we even forget. We’ve

had tremendous support from people. He’s had an enormous amount of prayer since day one and that’s made all the difference.” Some of the support has come from Variety— The Children’s Charity, which helped offset the costs of travel to Vancouver, paying for things like gas, accommodation and parking as the Hartwicks went back and forth to B.C. Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House multiple times. “It certainly took off some of the stress when we were in Vancouver,” acknowledged Hartwick. Variety will hold its 45th annual Show of Hearts Telethon Feb. 12 and 13 on Global. Last year the telethon raised $7.4 million, money that helps offset medical care for children such as Matthew.

“Even though we can’t solve all the family’s problems we can ease some of the strain,” said Tami Leidl, Variety’s director of the heart fund. “A little bit of help, whether it is a parking pass or a meal that day can lighten a heavy load when all a parent can focus on is the well being of their child.” This week the Hartwick family is focussed on just that, helping Matthew stay healthy. Following the EKG, little Matthew is back to his calm and happy self. Those blue eyes look heavy and he’s ready for his mid-morning nap. First, he will have to go up to the fourth floor for his shot to protect him from the RSV virus. “We have to be more vigilant about protecting him from getting sick, as any additional strain on his heart could be devastating,” said Hartwick, who seems like a rock as she packs the kids up and heads for the hospital elevator. “No parent likes to see their child upset, but we know all the extra attention Matty gets is important, so we just roll with it,” she said. “His long term prognosis is good and we trust that he can lead a fairly normal life, like ride a bike and play with friends. But he will always be followed by cardiology.” Now you can use the Internet to add your own non-profit event to the Capital News Stuff to Do.

Hard financial realities continue to dog Kelowna’s arts organizations, causing them to be more creative in their fundraising endeavours, and more reliant on the city’s Professional Arts Grants, council was informed this week. “We have been monitoring the situation since 2009,” said Sandra Kochan, the city’s cultur-

al services manager, referring to the date when the provincial government yanked gaming grant funds, sparking a public outcry from arts, sports and non-profit organizations across B.C. “Other than Canada Arts Council funding, there’s not a lot out there.” That prompted Coun. Charlie Hodge to ask whether demands on the city coffers have increased.

“The organizations have been respectful and appreciative of the support that has been ongoing from the city,” said Kochan. “And while there’s a need for more funding, there’s an appreciation that local government can’t possibly fill those gaps.” The gaps left are substantial, however, and Kochan pointed out that a loss of gaming grants left the Okanagan Symphony

as jobs to the region. “We’re fortunate to have them here, beyond own mandates they support the work of others.” At the end of the day, council approved a recommendation from staff to distribute $95,000 in Professional Arts Grants to the Okanagan Symphony ($50,000), Kelowna Ballet Society ($25,000) and the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art ($20,000).

New KGH clinical support building started Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Interior Health will break ground on its latest multi-million dollar construction project today. The $47 million clinical support building, to be built across Pandosy Street from Kelowna General Hospital, is slated open next year. It will be the new home to the hospital’s lab-

oratory and other support departments and its construction will make way for the planned new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre on the KGH site. The IHSC will add the region’s largest hospital to the small list of hospitals in B.C. offering full cardiac care. Angioplasties are already being performed at KGH but the addition of the centre will add open-heart surgery.

Graham Design-Build Services has signed a fixed-price contract with Interior Health to design and build the clinical support building.The Interior Heart and Surgical Centre project was announced by the province in January 2010 and IH is currently recruiting surgeons for the heart centre. The clinical support building will house departments that will be

moved from the existing hospital in preparation for the start of construction of the heart centre building in 2012. The three-storey, 7,850 square-metre clinical support building will be connected to the new KGH Centennial Tower by an elevated enclosed walkway across Pandosy Street at the third-floor level. The CSB will be built to Leadership in Energy

and Environmental Design (LEED) gold standards to ensure high-performance standards are met, minimizing operating costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, say IH officials. To meet the commitment of British Columbia’s Wood First Act and showcase the use of wood, extensive use of wood will be used throughout the building.

Search for Rutland arsonist intensifies Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Mounties are hoping to jog memories and loosen tongues about a series of Rutland arsons they fear will continue and ultimately heighten in severity. “The investigation hasn’t uncovered a suspect, so we are requesting help from the public,” said Const. Steve Holmes, on Wednesday. “Today we are taking the effort to display a number of information wanted posters.” The posters, which can be found all through Rutland, map out the locations of the seven fires sparked this winter—five on Oct. 22, another on Nov. 5 and one more Jan. 4—and highlight the arsonist’s pattern.

“The Modus Operandi, if you will, is that there are accelerants used in all cases, the targets are in close proximity and in most cases it’s been an outbuilding or items that have been set on fire,” said Holmes. “Only in one case has there been a house fire.” While the firebug has yet to injure anyone, Holmes said the concern with situations of this kind is that fires could increase in severity and rate. “It could escalate, and then tragedy is a matter of when, not if,” he said. Holmes said until people come forward with

anything they’ve seen, they can’t begin to speculate about who’s doing the crime. It could be kids or adults, of either gender. It could be someone work-

ing alone, he noted. “The lens is wide open right now,” he said. Police are asking the public for any information with respect to the fires. Call the Kelowna

the brilliant free gift idea. If one is to consider the many freebies, halfoffs and two-for-one deals out there this time of year, one has to admit, the tattoo is among the more creative. But please do not be fooled. While that innocent little slip of paper may be buried in one of those purchasable books that make one feel like they’re getting a steal of a deal, this one is guaranteed to cost you an arm or a leg. As one who has a rather ill-thought-out tattoo—albeit nothing to do

with anyone’s name—I can honestly say there is no amount of free that could possibly be worth the free space one loses when a goofy tattoo takes up residence. Even at the coupon’s $50 limit—which one has to assume would leave room for only a couple of initials—adding a lover’s name, initial, astrological sign is ultimately like tattooing “don’t date me” on your body to everyone outside their exclusive range in the universe. I’m pretty sure, it would cost you less humiliation to just get married.

The plans for a proposed tunnel through the rock at kilometre 12 of the Mission Creek Greenway will wait until sunnier economic times, but the trail bypass currently in use is bringing the area’s grasslands to light. Golder Associates senior geotechnical engineer Glen Rutherford said

the project has been completed with a detailed tender package and could be constructed at any time. Only the funding is needed to get started. He said in general the rock quality in the area is good, but deteriorates toward the far eastern section of the slope. “We weren’t able to stay away from the creek as much as we would have liked.”

Rutherford said based on 2010 construction costs, the tunnel would cost about $900,000. He added with a suggested 20 per cent contingency, the final price would reach $1.1 million. During the design process, an environmental assessment was conducted of the area. The entire project would be taking place in a sensitive ecosystem. Rutherford added that two rare species, the screech owl and yellow-bellied racer, were spotted in the area at the time. He said the company laid out a series of best management practices for construction of the tunnel, and strongly recommended an environmental professional be retained to monitor the project due to its proximity to the creek. But funding the project would happen in partnership between the Regional District of Central Okanagan and the Friends of

‘‘

WE WEREN’T ABLE TO STAY AWAY FROM THE CREEK AS MUCH AS WE WOULD HAVE LIKED. Glen Rutherford

Mission Creek Society. The five year parks plan for the regional district does not have any funds allocated for the project, and the society is low on cash to chip in for the tunnel as well. Peter Gill, current president of the Friends of Mission Creek Society, said the group passed a motion in 2010 to put the project off for five years. He pointed out the rationale was to get the project ready to go, but also that the society was concerned about the economy.

Not having the funds would mean the society would have to go fresh to the public for fundraising. Gill said the tunnel project is seen as a special event for the society but the timing for public donations could be poor. “At this time, when some of them are really suffering because of the downturn, it’s probably not a good idea.” He added that the current trail bypass has actually had benefits in highlighting a grassland area of the park. Gill pointed out many people are concerned about the fate of grasslands, and the society is working on featuring the type of ecosystem more highly. The regional district board moved that the society come back with a report on their funding priorities so that the two bodies could work in tandem. msimmons@kelownacapnews. com

Cancer study finds support Some 500 Southern Interior residents have already taken part in the B.C. Generations Project since the Kelowna clinic opened its doors on Jan.6. And 230 more are booked for their appointment to participate in the largest cancer prevention study in B.C. history. The positive response from the community has prompted the study team to extend the clinic for an added week. Residents aged 35 to 69 can still act now and contribute to the health of future generations of British Columbians. The B,C. Cancer Agency’s head of cancer control research, John Spinelli, the Project’s principal investigator, explains that taking part in this major national research project will make a significant contribution to our understanding of the causes of cancer for decades to come. “In a matter of 30 minutes, you can make a major difference for future generations,� he said. Robert Fine, director of economic development for the Central Okanagan, was the first local resident to participate in the Kelowna clinic. “I am thrilled to see so many fellow Okanagan residents participating. For me it was an easy process—such a small pocket of time holds the potential to make such a difference,� Fine said. “The process was seamless, plus I walk away feeling like I’ve done something significant for my kids and generations to come.� The BC Generations Project clinic is located in the Westbank Valley Medical Lab and will be open until Feb. 12.

Valentine’s Day offers cause to run for the hills, say studies

I

t was supposed to be a romantic gesture chock o’ block with creativity and thoughtfulness —something to foil Hallmark’s supremacy and still celebrate the day of love. In lieu of buying schlocky chocolates I’d eventually confiscate to slip into a sugar coma, I purchased my beau a pair of red and white fish to fill his recently acquired aquarium. In my imagination, they’d live together, swimming through castles and above underwater explorers. It was to be a Jacques Cousteau-inspired bliss. Less than 24-hours into that happily-ever-after, sadly, they suffered a fate more gruesome than Romeo and Juliet. “Eaten alive, possibly by each other,” surmised the pet store work-

er, when inquiries were made. The relationship suffered a similar fate, and in the decade-plus that followed, dabbling in St. Valentine’s sentimental tokens has been warily viewed as a harbinger of romantic endings. For that reason alone, I’ve come to believe it’s best to hide from the world Feb. 14, just in case one day of disappointment forever muddies a perfectly good opportunity for a lifetime lacking variety. Paranoid though it may be, it turns out I’m not alone in this tack. A new study by the dating service,

KATHARTIC It’s Just Lunch, polled

4,400 North Americans about their priorities and in the process, stumbled upon a delightful fact. Around 42 per cent of men said finding a Kathy mate was the most imMichaels portant thing to them, but 35 per cent said they spend no time looking for one. Better yet, a full third of single men intentionally avoid getting into relationships between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day “perhaps because of perceived threats to their egos and wallets.” Egos, wallets and what’s clearly between the lines—potential emotional cannibalism. The motivation

behind the blood-red theme of Valentine’s is starting to become much clearer, no? This comforting little fact prompted further research. After all, it’s not often you can find ways to normalize your irrational fears. The second shuffle through Google one-upped the last lesson learned. Turns out, February isn’t just the month police target distracted drivers. It isn’t only the most profitable time for chocolatiers. ‘Tis the season for divorce. Data compiled by Avvo.com, a site that offers free ratings and profiles for lawyers and licensed MDs, found that divorce filings skyrocket this time of year. “Over the past two years we’ve seen an average in-

crease of 40 per cent in the number of requests for divorce lawyers around Valentine’s Day, compared to the previous six months.” Terrible really. Could it be that widespread fear of poor gifts and disappointing gestures on a day of love is downing marriages? Could it be, I’ve been right all along? There are so many more genius theories I need to air out, I realized as I got a bit drunk on schadenfreude. But before I compile a concise list in a location no one will be made aware of, I’ll wish you all best of luck on your love adventures. But tread carefully, and steer clear of aquatic themes.

friendly. Is Kelowna a community or a collection of opinionated bigots? Our parks are for everyone to enjoy, families with children and grand-

parents, and even people with dogs. Bob Enns, Kelowna

▼ RCMP

Police lose the support of military veteran To the editor: Re: Article about Buddy Tavares being kicked by an RCMP officer while being arrested (Capital News, Jan. 9) What short memories we have, reading letters of Wendy Gill and Mo Rajabally and many media reports that tend to indicate this was an isolated incident and we shouldn’t paint the rest of the RCMP force with the same brush. Have we all forgotten 70-year-old John Peters

of Kelowna? What kind of Christmas did the Ian Bush family of Houston have? Or the Dziekanski family, the Arar family, the Knipstrom family, the Hutchinson family and many more across B.C.and Canada? The Buddy Tavares incident is only the tip of this disgusting situation. So don’t give me the tearful speech about the innocence of the rest of the force. I ask you, when was the last time a cop turned

in another cop for abusing someone? Any cop that is witness to the public abuse by his associate is just as guilty as the offender, if not reported immediately in writing to his superiors, which is his duty, and of course becomes evidence at any hearing. The fact is the RCMP has painted the word “disgrace” across their uniforms for the past few years with their own paintbrush. I, along with many

Canadian military veterans, am disgusted with the actions of the RCMP and the inaction of the government to clean up this mess before more innocent lives are lost. As a proud military veteran and Canadian, I believe it is time to retire the RCMP at least in B.C. and install an accountable B.C. police force. As I recall, I fought to maintain the rights, liberties and justice of all Canadians. And as such, in all good conscience I

must stand with the many grieving families that are suffering as a result of the abusive hand of the RCMP. I can’t speak for all military veterans. Each must search his own heart on this issue. But I will no longer honour the RCMP uniform by standing with it at ceremonies, as it would be hypocrisy singing the National Anthem, “We stand on guard for thee.” R. Jack Bradcoe, Westbank

Food labelling law delay called troubling

To the editor: This is a “thumbs down” to the thoughtless person who on Sunday, Feb. 6, could not control their dark blue/black SUV in the Mission area, and drove through our fence and into our yard at around 3 p.m. You and you alone created much damage to our property and then left the scene of this “hit and run” accident caused solely by you. This is a criminal offence and was reported to the police as such. You stopped up the street and had the option to stay and take control of your actions, but instead you opted to take off without remaining at the scene and did not accept your re-

sponsibilities. You have now caused us undo time spent and cost that will come out of our own pockets. It is unfortunate you did not have the backbone to stick around to advise the owners personally and look after the damage. To us, this is just the tip of the iceberg, as it seems that our society shirks its total responsibilities in many ways these days, traits that have been learned from parents or other associates. We see it on the news day after day that very few people seem to be capable of stepping “up to the plate” to help others, accept their mistakes, or come forward to say they are wrong, but instead

tend to blame others or run away from their inflicted wounds that they cause to others. Our words to these people are start to accept what you create, think about other people’s property, and the value they place on it. It is not yours to harm or destroy. What so often happens in life is that “what goes around, comes around.” Someday, sometime, you will be caught in a similar situation, and this time will come back to haunt you. We hope it will be an easy lesson learned. Ron Crosby, Kelowna,

Common sense answer is to do away with HST and GST To the editor: The provincial government has assembled a special panel to produce a report on the pros and cons of the harmonized sales tax. Can you believe the stupidity of this approach as if we haven’t already talked it to death. First off, how much will this cost us? It will probably change nothing Second, I surely would like to know

who will be serving on this panel/ I am weary of the so-called experts telling us how to run our lives when in most cases they haven’t figured out the common sense factor in all of this. Take this as common sense—cancel the GST and the HST. That should take care of the issue. A panel of experts? Lets get real. D. F. Breen, Westbank

To the editor: An under-reported story last week was the federal government’s delay of the new food labelling law. The new law calls for companies to identify known allergens, such as gluten, nuts, milk or sulphites on their product labels. It was set to be published by Health Canada this month, but last minute lobbying by the beer industry for a special exemption has delayed the new rules being implemented. This comes despite the fact that an Angus Reid poll commissioned by the Canadian Celiac Association and Anaphylaxis Canada shows that 67 per cent of Canadians want the new labelling rules to apply to all food and beverage companies—including beer. Aside from benefits accrued to people suffering from severe allergies, the new law benefits everyone through fewer hospital visits and resulting cost savings. It’s a no-brainer. Therefore, when faced with the choice between the health and safety of its citizens or a powerful business lobby, it’s unfortunate that the government has chosen the latter.

▼ CROCODILE TEARS

UBCO study finds facial clues can reveal fake or sincere remorse A new study led by Leanne ten Brinke, a psychology PhD candidate at UBC’s Okanagan campus, investigates how genuine and falsified remorse reveals itself on the human face, and how these facial clues can help detect whether a person is faking regret or is sincerely sorry. Published this week in the journal Law and Human Behaviour, ten Brinke’s study examined and coded the facial behaviours associated with emotional deception in videotaped accounts of true personal wrongdoing, accompanied by either genuine or fabricated remorse, among 31 Canadian undergraduate stu-

dents. “From the coding process we knew what emotions were present, we knew the duration of each emotion, and we also knew the sequence,” says ten Brinke. “So we were able to compare these variables in the context of genuine and falsified remorse.” The study’s findings have important implications for judges and parole board members, who look for genuine remorse when they make their sentencing and release decisions. “Obviously offenders are motivated to pretend to be remorseful and legal decision-makers are motivated to detect crocodile tears,” says ten Brinke.

Centre for the Advancement of Psychology and Law at UBC’s Okanagan campus, and Sarah MacDonald from Memorial University of Newfoundland, ten Brinke’s research showed that the sequence of facial emotions could also reveal important clues to deception. “Particularly in the lower face, liars were much more likely to be what we termed as ‘emotionally turbulent,’” says ten Brinke. “This means they were more likely to jump from positive to negative emotions immediately. During genuine remorse, people are more likely to return to a neutral emotion in between the extremes.”

Her analysis of nearly 300,000 frames of both the upper and lower face showed that participants who displayed false remorse exhibited more of the seven universal emotions (happiness, sadness, fear, disgust, anger, surprise, and contempt) than those who were genuinely sorry. “We found that during falsified remorse, people showed a greater range of emotional expression,” she says. “They were more likely to show anger and contempt, where as the genuine folks didn’t show these kinds of emotions.” Working with professors Stephen Porter and Brian O’Connor from the

NEWS ▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

Exciting high-tech career options offered by the military

T

tion. The most common is your parents, student loans and juggling parttime work with full-time study. More innovative approaches include having someone pay you to go to school which isn’t as uncommon as you think. Today in Canada, as is the norm for most western countries, if you are willing to go into military service your educational costs may be covered by the government. A local example of this form of education financing is Okanagan College’s electronic engineering technology program. This two-year diploma program was accredited by the Air Force last month for a career in aerospace telecommunications and information systems, and in July 2009

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens by the Navy for a career in naval electronics (communications, sonar, radar and weapons). What this means is that students who are interested in serving their country and who have a keen interest in electronic engineering can enroll in this Okanagan College program and get paid while they are going to school. The Forces don’t just cover tuition fees, books, and academic equipment, but students are also paid a salary plus benefits while they complete their program. Benefits include the basics such as medical

and dental but they also offer paid vacation. A recent high school graduate, current Grade 12 student or adult student who is interested in Okanagan College’s electronic engineering technology program and considering a career in the armed Forces can apply to the Non-Commissioned Member Subsidized Education Plan. Once accepted, the forces would pay the student $31,020 per year for their first year of the program and $37,932 for the second year of the program. During the summer months the student will attend basic training, including specific on-thejob training required once the student determines which career they wish to focus on. Add the two years’ salary together, and you realize that students enrolled in the program and

on the Forces’ payroll will earn $68,952 between the first day of classes and graduation. That’s a lot different than amassing student loan debt. Upon graduation, students have to commit to three and half years of service. Salaries after the initial three and half years of service are completed start at approximately $75,000 plus benefits. Qualified members of the Canadian Forces interested in obtaining a civilian certification can also apply to the electronic engineering technology program under NonCommissioned Members (NCM) Education Reimbursement (ER) program. The NCM ER program helps individuals increase their knowledge base, promotion potential and employment opportunities within the Forces. These gains can also

help with future civilian employment. So what about the work? Looking at their website, just about every career looks exciting. For example, aerospace telecommunications information systems technicians travel the world supervising and repairing all kinds of Air Force telecommunications systems. Those interested in the navy can become a naval electronics technician and from there can choose from three different options: communications, radar or sonar. The final option is a naval weapons technician which involves maintaining and fixing onboard

weapons. If you visit the Okanagan College website at www.okanagan.bc.ca/ electronics you will see a link called subsidized programs. On this page it will provide you with a direct link to all of these careers. In true military fashion, the Forces provides a very in-depth outline of each job, including what type of work you will be doing, career development options, your work environment and more including a video. Navy ships carry very sophisticated equipment that would be fascinating for someone interested in electronics. Ditto for the Air Force Technician career—it

looks as though technologists would be involved with systems that very few would ever have the opportunity to work on. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College.

Psychiatry: Difficult but rewarding I am fortunate to spend my working days in a career I find both fascinating and fulfilling. Medicine is a field in which there are virtually endless possibilities and within which a person can change focus without too much difficulty. Psychiatry is one of the final frontiers within medicine. We still have so much to learn about the human brain, the disorders affecting it, and the treatments that can help alleviate people’s suffering. Truly, I am privileged to be able to talk with people every day and try to offer some help when they are going through some of the most vulnerable and frightening experiences of their lives. Without doubt, the most rewarding thing in my work is the heartfelt

Often, if an individual has spent months or years struggling unsuccessfully with a mental illness on their own, getting appropriate treatment really does lead to a remarkable turnaround.

This is what easily happens when patients are irrational or misunderstand what is happening. Although this can occur in many professions, psychiatrists and others in the mental health field are dealing with irrational people to a greater extent than most. Unlike many other health care providers, psychiatrists have an additional function in restricting patients’ freedom due to mental health legislation. It becomes our responsibility to impose incarceration or involuntary admission when patients

Kelowna’s Gert Beadle was a trail blazer at a time when most communities readily ostracized women who defied social proprieties by championing equality and justice for their sisters. Beadle’s dedication to improving women’s lives earned her the Order of Canada and the Persons Award and is timelessly preserved in four published works of poetry, the proceeds of which she funneled back into the community. Helping women is this inspirational woman’s legacy; one which the Kelowna Women’s Resource Centre continues to keep alive with the prestigious Gert Beadle Award, an endowment that honours a local woman—or group of women—ho share Beadle’s tireless dedication and commitment to helping her sisters. The women’s resource centre wants to hear from the public, specifically for seeking nominations for the annual award. Candidates can be a solo woman 18 years or older or a women’s group or organization, nomination packages are available at KWRC, 1492 St. Paul St. and must be submitted by Feb. 25. The award will celebrate a local woman or women who a panel of judges feels best reflect Beadle’s motivating energy and inspiration. The winner will be announced at KWRC’s International Women’s Day celebration, March 8. For more details, call 250-762-2355 or check out the website www. kwrc.net.

other practitioners experience anything like this, with the exception of doctors performing abortions. This is an extension of the stigmatization of mental illness that our patients have to endure. Generally, medical students choose psychiatry because they want to help mentally ill people and they are not prepared for the hostility, criticism and opposition they may be exposed to in their chosen field. Although psychiatry is a difficult profession, I am still moved daily by the stories and lives I hear about and feel privileged to be able to assist people during what are often their most difficult times.

▼ MP’S REPORT

Clarifying the tax cut debate S etting the record straight is important. This week in Parliament, the Liberal opposition tabled a motion denouncing corporate tax cuts. The threat is that if the government’s next budget, which will be tabled in March, doesn’t abandon corporate tax cuts, then there will be an election…maybe. Here’s the catch—you won’t see corporate tax cuts in Budget 2011 because the decision to cut the corporate tax rate was passed in Budget 2007, supported by the Liberal opposition. Here’s another catch—to do as the Liberals want would be raising taxes on Canada’s job creators at a time in our economy when we need to support them. In fact, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and the Canadian Exporters and Manufacturers, they welcome it. The Opposition is claiming that they are fighting corporate tax cuts for the sake of the middle class. But doesn’t the middle class, like every other Canadian, want well-paying jobs too? I think so and from the discussions with local businesses and at our prebudget economic roundtable, they need our sup-

▼ HEALTH STUDY

Acetaminophen can hinder our body’s ability to heal itself

A

recent article published in Respiratory Care and Critical Care Medicine found that there’s an increased risk of asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis and eczema in adolescents with use of acetaminophen. Dr. Richard Beasley, of the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand, recently conducted this study involving 322,000 and 115 centres involving children between the ages of 13 and 15 from 50 countries. The rationale of this study was to determine the epidemiological evidence of the use of acetaminophen and a possible increased risk of developing asthma and other maladies.

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel Essentially, they wanted to investigate the risk of asthma and other allergic disorders associated with moderate and high use users of acetaminophen between the ages of 13 and 14, worldwide. This was a part of the International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Children or, ISAAC and it looked at acetaminophen used in the past 12 months. These were their find-

ings. They used the children who had no acetaminophen exposure as the reference, or zero point. Adolescents who were reported as medium users, or moderate users of acetaminophen had a 1.43 higher chance of presenting with asthma. Those adolescents who were considered high users had a 2.51 higher chance suffering from maladies such as asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis, and eczema. The researchers concluded that acetaminophen use may represent an important risk factor for development and or maintenance of asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis and eczema.

The authors postulated that use of acetaminophen causes and oxidantinduced airway inflammation. Acetaminophen, much like many over-thecounter drugs should always be used sparingly. I always find it interesting when untoward effects of medication are called “side effects,” when in fact they are “direct effects” of using the medication. Many well-meaning parents who want to do what’s best for their children—i.e. keep them comfortable, reduce the discomfort and help them in any way they can when they are feeling ill. But we must remember the mechanisms of

disease and wellness and their individual expressions. For instance, when one has food poisoning or some form of a gastroin-

testinal virus, vomiting is a sign of health. The body is attempting to rid itself of what is ailing it. This seems like a healthy response to me. A productive cough that is producing phlegm should be encouraged and not suppressed by cough syrup, as the body is trying to get rid of the pathogen that is in fact making it sick. A fever, for instance, is another expression of health. When one has a, say, bacterial infection the body will attempt to rid itself of the bacteria by increasing its temperature. This is a healthy response. When my children have a fever, I do not

intervene until the fever gets to the point where it needs to be brought down. Aspirin, acetaminophen and the like should not be dispensed as though it is as benign as a Pez out of a Pez dispenser. All medications have side effects and it should always be assessed on a cost-benefit ratio. I’m thankful we have medication, as there are times when you need them. But is best for your health to dispense them wisely. Let your body do what was meant to do. Dr. Markus Thiel is a doctor chiropractic. Questions and comments may be sent to askdrthiel@shaw.ca

The raffle prizes generated a contribution of $1,520. The winning ticket for the $500 meat prize package was drawn by the parents of Angela, Anita and Shaun.

▼ MLA’S REPORT

The next steps in building a better Kelowna area Y mugshot name asked to help prioritize capital projects by the area’s three MLAs, and the strong response received clearly indicates the process should be repeated in the future. Over the next few days, the submissions from each constituency

will be consolidated into a single list. Any name identifiers will be removed to protect privacy, and a report will be generated presenting the level of support for each project proposed. The next task is to identify all aspects surrounding each proposal in order to focus our efforts. Government funds— your funds—are limited. It is therefore very important that questions be answered as we prepare to advocate for our community’s priorities. Some of the questions to be considered are: • Which projects are shovel-ready? • Which provincial minis-

try – or ministries – would be involved? • Who is taking the lead? (water suppliers, school district, IHA, others)? • Is funding available through programs such as the Build Canada Plan? • Should a particular project be funded by the Province alone, with other levels of government, or as a public-private partnership (P3)? • How much public support was expressed for each project through this consultation process? All of this information— and more—will be compiled into a large matrix. Once ready, it will be made available to resi-

dents through our websites, the media, public meetings and at our offices. After all, this process is based on the input of citizens and that will continue. This is a process that requires an intensive effort in consultation, along with a hard-nosed commitment to get on with the job. Since being elected in 2009, we have worked

with MLAs, MPs and our municipal partners throughout the Okanagan to secure hundreds of millions of dollars for spending on local highways, hospitals, housing and other important investments. A recent example is the $77.9 million Highway 97 Winfield-Oyama four-laning project, which last week received federal environmental approval and has now gone to

tender. Some of the infrastructure programs have expired now, but armed with your priority list we will be able to continue the work of presenting the best case to the relevant decision makers and partners for continued investment in one of Canada’s fastest growing areas. Norm Letnick is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country.

Is the 2011 S60 the sportiest Volvo ever? Good looks and improved driving dynamics plus safety features galore make new S60 a winner for Volvo. Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

Volvo has earned a well-deserved reputation over the years as the builder of safe, reliable, longlasting vehicles. The need for classleading performance and styling were likely not at the top of the list if you surveyed Volvo customers of the past. In fact, many probably couldnπt have cared less that the Swedish automaker’s cars looked more like boxes on wheels rather than works of art when it came to exterior design. What really mattered was that the cars were among the safest on the road and they would last for as long as you wanted

to hang on to them. But things have changed at Volvo as it has moved upmarket over the years to become a premium brand. The competition in the luxury segment is much stiffer and customers have become much more demandingã they no longer want just safety at the expense of bland styling. In short, they want it all. So when the design team at Volvo set out to bring the next generation S60 sedan to market, they were charged with the task of creating the sportiest vehicle in the company’s history. It had to be dynamic in all areas from design to performance, handling and, of course, safety. The result is the 2011 S60, now on sale at Volvo dealers from coast to coast. The S60 was developed while Volvo was under the Ford umbrella, but it is now Chinese owned, controlled by the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.

It is a global car with about a third of the production destined for North America, a third for Europe and the other third for China, which has become perhaps the most important market in the world. At launch, the S60 will be available with only one engine choice, a turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine, making 300 hp and 325 lb/ft of torque. It is mated with a sixspeed automatic transmission with Geartronic and features all-wheel drive with instant traction. Although horsepower is up over the 2009 model (there was no S60 for 2010), fuel economy has been improved by 10 per cent. In the future, Volvo officials say a lower end model another yet-to-beannounced powertrain will be available in Canada as will a sportier Rdesign model that is being

unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this fall. The Canadian version of the 2011 T6 AWD, starting at $45,450, will come well-equipped out of the gate with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, power sunroof, electronic climate control, leather seats, (heated up front), speed sensitive power steering, rain-sensor wipers, heated windshield washer nozzles, retractable rear view mirrors with puddle lights, eight speaker audio system with steeringwheel mounted controls, Bluetooth, tire pressure monitoring system, Sirius satellite radio, dynamic chassis, power driverπs seat with memory and three-spoke sport steering wheel. Volvo prides itself in being an innovator in safety technology and with the 2011 S60, it doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it have the City Safety system (to help prevent rearend collisions) that Volvo debuted in the XC60 crossover as standard, it has an optional new system called Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake that in effect stops the car or slows it down if the driver fails to respond in time. Before our ride and drive through some interesting twists and turns that took us into the Columbia River valley, we had an opportunity to test out this latest safety feature in our hotel parking lot. Driving at speeds under 35 km/h, we headed straight for a child-size dummy. Without touching the brakes or taking evasive steering action, the car came to an abrupt stop inches away from the dummy we had nicknamed Volvo Bob. The system includes a radar unit integrated into the grille that is combined with a camera placed in front of the rear view mirror and a central control unit. How the system works is the radar detects any object in front of the car to determine its distance away, while the camera works to detect what See Volvo A23

New pedestrian detection safety system offered in S60 Volvo from A22 type of object it actually is. Once the system determines that it is a pedestrian it tracks the movement of the individual until the car safely passes. If the pedestrian steps in front of the car and the driver fails to take evasive action, the system brings the car to a stop, or at higher speeds, slows it down to mitigate the damage (and severity of possible injuries to the pedestrian). As important as Pedestrian Detection can be, the system does have its limitations. It only sees what the driver can see; thererfore it doesn’t work after rdark or in blinding snowstorms. Surely, the next step in its evolution might be the use of night vision technology. In Canada, Pedestrian Detection is available as part of a $4,500 Driver Support Package that also includes a driver alert system, blind spot information system, park assist both front and rear, adaptive cruise control and collision warning with full tauto brake. A variety of stand alone options are also offered, but if you tick off all the boxes, it wouldnπt take long to get the MSRP over tthe $58K range when you add in the $1,715 freight and PDI charge. Volvo is aiming this vehicle at a slightly diffferent customer base than usual focusing on urbandwelling professionals between 30 and 45 with a household income over t$100,000. If those customers are style-conscious driving enthusiasts, they should r

be impressed with the new S60. Design wise, Volvo says it has gone in an entirely new direction with more modern, contemporary look that features a swoopy, coupelike profile from the side, much like the Volkswagen Passat CC and the 2011 Hyundai Sonata. That contemporary look continues on the inside, highlighted on my Vibrant Copper-coloured test car with a similar Beechwood leather interior. I liked the exterior colour (Volvo chose it for all its test cars at launch), but I suspect it might appear dated in a couple of years, as trendy colours tend to do. As with all Volvos, the new sport seats in the S60 are outstanding, offering lots of support and comfort, even after several hours of seat time. They got a good workout later in the day as we turned the cars loose on the 2.3-mile Oregon Raceway Park, a Field of Dreams-type racetrack that suddenly appeared before our eyes, out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by wheat fields. During my two laps of the track, the seats did their job, keeping my butt firmly planted with little slipping and sliding on hard corners. Similarly, the Haldex all-wheel-drive system along with the electronic stability control and Volvo’s torque vectoring (which works to prevent understeer) helped me keep the car on track, even going into several blind corners on the challenging circuit.

▼ NV COMMERCIAL VAN

Nissan meets customer needs Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

While Nissan’s commercial vans (CV) may be new to North America, the company has been in the CV business for 75 years covering more than 80 per of the global CV market. The first production models in Nissan’s new North American CV lineup are the 2012 Nissan NV1500, NV2500 and NV3500. They will be available with a choice of 4.0-litre V6 and 5.6litre V8 engines and in

two body styles, Standard Roof (all models) and High Roof (NV2500 and NV3500 only) with High Roof models offering stand-up walkthrough/ work cargo area capability. Because this is a “clean sheet paper” vehicle, designers and engineers put a lot of effort into finding what potential customers wanted. They had meetings with large fleet owners and managers, small business owners, aftermarket suppliers and converters and

rode along with owners of competitive vehicles. One of the most important things they learned was commercial van owners are the least satisfied of any vehicle segment. In fact, many van owners disposed of their vehicles in favor of light duty trucks despite the compromise of convenience and utility. To that end, a design goal was to combine pickup truck-like comfort, interior amenities and drivability with a cargo van’s capacity.

Another glaring area was cabin comfort. First, unimpeded ingress and egress was addressed. Next came making the bucket seating supportive with a wide range of adjustability, large armrests and a truck-like driving position coupled with ample legroom and foot room. An available centre console (removable) was designed to offer a range of integrated storage feaCONTRIBUTED

DESIGNERS of the new Nissan NV commercial van line had to do some thinking See Nissan A25 to satisfy one of the pickiest consumer segments in the auto industry.

Nissan van includes many features users have long wanted Nissan from A24

To accommodate aftermarket uses, roof rack mounting brackets are designed for various rack systems without piercing holes in the roof, which can lead to corrosion and water leaks. The available â&#x20AC;&#x153;upfitter pre-wiringâ&#x20AC;? allows easy access into the electrical system. Customers wanted,

and got, a full-length cargo area inner panel to protect the outer walls from dents and dings from the inside. There are multiple weld-nut attachment points for shelving and racks requiring no sheet metal drilling. In addition, the NVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly vertical sidewalls maximize the usable cargo space, accommodating common

aftermarket storage systems. Suspension is independent coil springs over MacPherson struts at the front with a solid rear axle with leaf springs and stabilizer bar. Braking is by 14.1-inch rotors front and rear with four-wheel ABS with electronic stability control. The 4.0-litre V6 pro-

duces 261 hp and 281 lb/ft of torque while the 5.6-litre V8 musters 317 hp and 385 lb/ft of torque on regular gas. Drive is to the rear through a fivespeed automatic transmission. I spent most of my time at the Miami press launch of the NV line in a 3500 V8 High Roof. Despite the hefty gross

vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 9,100 lb, the V8 felt more like a sports sedan with its acceleration, but then again it was empty. As part of the drive, Nissan made a donation of building materials to Habitat For HumanSee Nissan A26

tures, while the fold-down passenger seat (which is unique to the segment) adds worktable functionality and enhances the cabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeling of openness. The result is a pickup truck-like cab that comes with an added bonus. Nissan found commercial van owners strongly disliked the â&#x20AC;&#x153;doghouseâ&#x20AC;?, the cover over the engine that often protrudes into the cabin because of engine placement. Nissan decided to use the common pickup truck engine layout with engine and transmission located ahead of the A pillar/firewall. Not only does this free storage space under the dash but also has the bonus of easier service and maintenance because the entire engine is under the hood. And like a pickup, the NV models are body on full frame. If you think the NV is just a van body mounted on the frame of the Titan pickup, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be wrong. This is an entirely new frame. The only thing it shares is one cross member near the rear. But the NV is all about cargo and it offers as much as 3,820 mm/150.4 inches of cargo floor length (without the centre console) and 1,783 mm/70.2 inches of maximum cargo floor width. The Standard Roof model has up to 1,417 mm/55.8 inches of cargo area height, among the tallest in class. The NV High Roof provides a maximum 1,953 mm/76.9 inches of cargo room height, enough for most users to move about the cargo area while standing up straight. Total cargo room on the Standard Roof is 6,553 litres (234.1 cubic feet) and 9,033 litres (323.1 cubic feet) on the High Roof. The Standard Roof fits in regular garages and underground parking/servicing areas. When it comes to functionally, the NV is festooned with storage pockets, spaces and compartments designed to provide secure access to the typical commercial customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; everyday use objects. If you look under the front seat, there is a drawer that is big enough for small tools, stationary or first aid kits, while the deep door pockets fit flashlights, legal-size binders and clipboards. High Roof models offer an available overhead console designed to hold

work gloves, legal size binders, safety glasses and system books. For those in the construction industry there is enough room to accommodate standard size sheets of plywood or drywall between the wheelhouses. There is also a range of cargo area tiedown rings and ample cargo area lighting.

As for competition, Nissan says there are only three, GM, Ford and Mercedes-Benz in what they feel is untapped segment begging for more competition. Nissan figures its pickup-like approach and all they have put into this design is really going to “work” for them.

Toyota focuses on hybrid power Toyota will unveil the next major advances in its hybrid power technology strategy for sustainable future transport at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The occasion will mark the world debut of Yaris HSD, a new concept heralding a production model that will bring Toyota full hybrid power to the B-segment Europe’s largest market sector. The next step in Toyota’s roll out of full hybrid versions of its complete model range in Europe, the Yaris HSD concept incorporates hybridspecific styling cues and new, forward-looking design elements. Prius+ will also be unveiled at Geneva, the first car to offer European customers the versatility of seven seats with a full hybrid powertrain. As its name suggests, Prius provides significantly more passenger accommodation and load space than its sister hatchback model, without sacrificing essential Prius attributes, such as class-leading fuel economy and ultra-low emissions. Going beyond these world-first presentations, Toyota will also be demonstrating the versatility of hybrid power technologies to achieve high efficiency and low or zero emissions in a wide range of vehicle types, including Plug-in Hybrids (PHV), Electric Vehicles (EV) and Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicles (FCHV), all of which feature in its product strategy for the present decade.

For a few years now, I’ve wanted to get my hands on a “toaster.” No, not the appliance, but the Scion xB, the funky little cube car, that keeps popping up (pardon the pun) on TV and in the movies as a ‘ride of choice’ among the young, hip and urban. It’s the signature Scion, the one that typically comes to mind when you mention the brand. And its iconic boxy shape, which you either love or hate, has gained a huge following south of the border, often pimped up with big alloy wheels, spoilers, lowering kits, sport mufflers and the occasional “got toast?” bumper sticker. Until recently, none of the Scion lineup has been available in Canada, except for a few that have made it here from the U.S. where they’ve been selling since 2003. The xB, like all Scion vehicles, is targeted at the younger buyer. But despite Toyota’s decision to align their marketing efforts with youth culture and promote the brand at handpicked sports, music, art and fashion venues, not to mention using social networking and their groovy scionnation.ca website, the average buyer is still north of 35. Young for Toyota, but still not a kid. I’m over 40, have two young children, live in suburbia and, sorry Toyota, appreciate the xB. And I don’t care if it diminishes the car’s “cool factor.” Setting aside all the bling and performance accessories you can order to tart up the vehicle, the xB makes a surprisingly good family hauler. And you get a ton of standard content for a starting MSRP of $18,270. Basic features include keyless entry, power locks and windows, air conditioning, cruise control, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, outside temp, six-speaker 160-watt AM/FM/CD Pioneer audio system with USB port, aux port and steering wheel controls, Bluetooth, power heated side mirrors

with built-in signals, and rear wipers which are a must this time of year. The xB also gets a full suite of safety features such as four wheel disc brakes with ABS; electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist; vehicle stability control; tire pressure monitoring system and six airbags. The xB may have performance aspirations, but it’s not overpowered. That being said, its 2.4-litre, 16-valve DOHC inline four cylinder delivers a respectable 158 hp and 162 lb/ft of torque, getting the xB up to speed smartly and providing reasonable passing power. This powerplant is mated to a standardequipped five-speed manual or optional fourspeed automatic for another $1,020. The latter seems a bit yestertech, as I would have expected a five-speed autobox this late in the game. My choice would be to save the money and spend it on upgrading the standard 16-inch steel rims and wheelcovers with a nice set of alloys. Despite the xB’s compact footprint, the interior seems cavernous. For this we can thank the car’s boxy shape as its nearly perpendicular sides offer more space than the inwardly tapered greenhouses and sloped rooflines of typical wagons and hatchbacks. The xB is also a tall vehicle at 1645 mm, nearly 100mm taller than the Matrix on which it is based. Consequently, there’s loads of headroom front and back, along with plenty of knee room in the rear. In front, you get wellbolstered sport seats with height adjustment for the driver. The seating position is high and upright, with excellent visibility of the road ahead. The instrument cluster is positioned in the centre, but unlike the Yaris which also has this feature, it seemed a better fit. I didn’t find myself always looking left for the information. The speedo’s large digital display is easy to read, and it is also joined by a tach, fuel gauge and clock with outside temperature, not to mention a

multi-information display with range, average speed and fuel economy, which at the time was 10.1 litres per 100 km combined. HVAC controls on the centre stack are simple and intuitive, consisting of three large knobs, conveniently angled towards the driver. The audio system, on the other hand, includes tiny buttons and shares none of this simplicity. It delivers excellent sound quality, but lacks that integrated ‘factory-installed’ look, appearing more like an aftermarket unit. In back, the 60/40 split folding seats drop for a flat cargo floor with four tie-downs and cargo light. Lift the rear floor panel for a hidden compartment, ideal for hiding valuables. Rather than swinging out like a fridge door, the hatch lifts up, and with its wide opening and low liftover height, the xB is easy to load. The vehicle is also agile in city traffic, with precise steering and stable cornering. The cabin is reasonably quiet, with less wind noise than I would have expected from a tall box design. What does the future hold for the xB and for Scion in Canada? With a total of 679 vehicles sold (including 367 xBs) from September 28 until the end of 2010, there’s likely much room for growth. Maybe it’s because I’m a newspaper guy— with an obvious bias for print that I’m not sold on the value of their hipster marketing. Sales of the xB have held to pretty modest levels at 82 for the month of January 2011, compared with 2146 Corollas and 1360 Matrix hatchbacks. On a more positive note, recent stats show that 71 per cent of Canadian Scion owners are new to the Toyota family, which is what the youth brand was expected to do. I agree with the company’s efforts to attract the younger buyer, but I’m also concerned that in their desire to sell a message to the ‘in crowd,’ they may be missing those of us over 40 who still appreciate Scion brand values, along with the funky style, practicality and value for the dollar.

UBCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caitlin Nyhus going out in style Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Caitlin Nyhus is making sure her fifth and final season with the UBC Okanagan Heat womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball squad is a memorable one. The veteran setter has been named the BCCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athlete of the week after leading the Heat to a pair of home-court victories last weekend to close out the regular season. On Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night Friday at the UBCO gym Nyhusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the only graduating member of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;paced the Heat to a 3-0 win over the Camosun Chargers. In addition to running an efficient offense, the Pen Hi grad delivered seven points on two kills, two blocks and three aces, and added four digs. On Saturday in a firstplace showdown against the Vancouver Island University Mariners, Nyhus was on her game again,

dispersing the ball across the court, while recording five points and 14 digs as the Heat clinched top spot with a 13-1 record. Nyhusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; performance last weekend was simply a continuation of what has been a stellar collegiate career. Over five seasons, she has two national national championship rings to her credit, a national bronze medal, two B.C. gold and two provincial silver medals. Nyhus has played in 99 matches, including league and playoffs, and the Heat have won 88 of those. With her career quickly winding down, Nyhus plans to savour every moment as the Heat take aim at their third straight national championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, I want to end it with another title,â&#x20AC;? said Nyhus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Head coach) Steve Manuel took me aside at Christmas and told me to just enjoy this, every game, every practise and every point in my last

Head coach Steve Manuel said Nyhusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contributions to the Heat program canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be overstated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caitlin has been the recurring factor if we look at our success year after year,â&#x20AC;? said Manuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other key players have come and gone but Cait has been been here throughout our teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rise to the top. She has made the transition from one year to the next, with different lineups, appear seamless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her work ethic is second to none and she has become an extremely dedicated student athlete. We will miss her next year but we are also grateful for the contribution that she has made to help prepare our team for Canada West competitionâ&#x20AC;?.

Athletic therapist Thorburn is ‘pulse’ of team Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With 20 games to play over the final 36 days of the regular season, the Kelowna Rockets endurance—both physical and mental—will be put to a staunch test. How well the players are able cope with the rigors of their most demanding stretch of hockey this season will, in all likelihood, determine where the Rockets finish in the B.C. Division standings. No one knows the importance of a healthy and well-rested team better than athletic therapist Jeff Thorburn who will be keeping a close eye on Rockets players as the final five weeks of the season unfolds. Rest and proper nutrition are particularly important on the road where Kelowna will play eight of its next 11 games. “The health and wellbeing of the players is crucial,” said Thorburn, now in his fifth season with the Rockets. “Their recovery and energy levels are both very important to their output, game in and game out. We just have to give them remind-

ers about good nutrition, good hydration habits, and getting rest when they have a chance is also very important. Our staff does a great job of making sure the guys are fed properly and nourished. Their performance depends on all those things.” While monitoring the daily habits of the team is a vital part of Thorburn’s duties, his most important role is the rehabilitation of injured players and getting them back in the lineup as quickly as possible without risking their longterm health. Thorburn is hoping he won’t be a busy man in the medical room in the coming months but if he is, the Rockets are secure in the knowledge that the players are in good hands. “Jeff’s very good at rehab, he has a good read and a good understanding of the body,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “He’s very detailed and it shows in his work. A lot of times, Jeff gets our players back on the ice sooner than you’d expect.” Thorburn was never busier at the trainer’s table than last season when a continual procession of Rockets—as many as nine

injured players at a time— required some form of treatment. Much to Thorburn’s relief, the 2010-11 campaign has been nowhere as hectic. “Last year was challenging for the team as a whole, the medical room was far busier than anyone wanted,” he said. “It’s just a matter of managing your time and making sure each and every player is doing what they need to do to get better in the appropriate time. This year, overall, knock on wood, has been better. You always have injuries to deal with, but at this point we’re in pretty good shape coming down the stretch.” Still, his role with the Rockets isn’t limited to just technical needs such as rehab, nutrition, conditioning programs, or equipment work. The 36-year-old Thorburn works closely with the players on a day-today basis and as a result serves as a form of intermediary between the players and the coaching staff. “Jeff’s the pulse of the team,” said Huska. “The players trust him, they’re open with him…the best

relationship on the team is between Jeff and the players. It’s a fine line for him, he’s a friend to the players while also having to be a bit firm with them when needed. “A lot of times Jeff has a good idea of the energy level of our team,” added Huska, “so he can come to us and let us know whether we should push, or if we should back off the level of intensity. He’s a valuable guy for the coaching staff and the team in general.” As for coming to work each day as the Rockets athletic therapist, Thor-

burn said he enjoys the atmosphere surrounding a major junior hockey team and working in the field of high performance athletics—not to mention his fascination with the dynamics of the human body. “It is fascinating to me to be honest with you, both from a performance point of view and from a mechanics point of view, as well as an injury and a healing and a rehabilitation process. The body’s an amazing machine and it’s an interesting study for me.” whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Locals enjoy Maui marathon run Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Their love of running has taken Pat and Corrine Gable to many locales across North America: Washington, Edmonton, Oregon, California, Victoria and Boston to name a few. The Kelowna couple added Hawaii to their ever-expanding travel log as they competed recently at the Maui Oceanfront Marathon for the first time. The heat and humidity of the mid-Pacific state provided a challenge for both runners, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop them from posting strong runs in their respective age groups. Pat was third in the

menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40 to 49 age group and 13th overall in the marathon with a time of three hours 22 minutes 54 seconds. Corrine, who competed in the half marathon, was second in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40 to 49 age group in 1:41:09, good for 42nd overall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corrine and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go in with high expecations,â&#x20AC;? said Pat Gable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever run a mid-winter race. We went with friends and thought it was a good excuse for a winter holiday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the race started it was 18 Celsius, and when it was over it was 32, so that part was tough. It was surprising to see how high we finished.â&#x20AC;? The Gables were part

of a large local contingent who competed in the various distances of the Maui Oceanfront Marathon. Other Kelowna and area runners who ran in the full marathon were: Becky Williams (4:51:52), Edwina Flannigan (4:51:43), Sandy Wike (4:55:12) and Shelly Stephens (5:05:19). In the half marathon: Woody Cross (1:49:57), Tom Jensen (2:04:49) and Gord Shannon (2:15:07). Larry Stephens ran in the 15k, while Gary Williams, and Keith and Sheila Orchiston ran in the 5 k event. As for the Gables, the Kelowna couple had hoped their next major event would be the Boston Marathon on April 19.

Pat has run in Boston four times before and Corrine has been there three times. But when the race filled up quickly and the Gables failed to get in, the couple had to make alternate plans. Fortunately, a marathon in nearby Narragansett, Rhode Island will serve as a replacement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already had everything booked for Boston, so when that fell through we got into Gansett Marathon, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Saturday before Boston,â&#x20AC;? said Pat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was created as an overflow for Boston, all the runners are qualifiers, so that worked out for us. There are only 150 people in it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be very different, but it should be fun.â&#x20AC;?

Many of Telemark’s young up-and-coming skiers had a chance to rub shoulders with some of Canada’s elite racers as the local nordic club played host to one of the largest cross country events ever to come to British Columbia. More than 460 competitors, including five members of Canada’s national nordic team, coverged on the West Kelowna site last weekend for the Haywood Western Canadian/NorAm/B.C. Cup over three days of competition. With the exception of a heavy snowfall on Sunday, which slowed the proceedings somewhat, event chair Scott Davis said the weekend of competiton was an unqualified success. “It was such a big event, we had the same race committee and timing committee that served at the Olympic Games and they said our event was just as well organized and ran very smoothly,” said Davis. “That came across in the words of so many people who participated and said how much they enjoyed it. It’s one of the biggest cross country events ever to come to this part of the country, and we know Telemark is an incredible club in a great location.” National team member Perianne Jones dominated the women’s competition, winning the Teck sprint on Friday, the 2.7 km Classic Prologue on Saturday, and the Haywood Multi-stage competition on Sunday. In the men’s race Friday, Drew Goldsack skied to a comfortable victory in the Teck sprint. On Saturday, Stefan Kuhn won the classic prologue by a narrow margin over Drew Goldsack and Graham Nishikawa. On Sunday, Canadian team member George

Grey—who missed Saturday’s events with the flu— came from a non-seeded wave start position to post the best multi-stage time of the day in 38:20.8. One of the most noteworthy performances of the weekend came from Rocky Mountain skier Maya MacIssac-Jones who, at just 15-years-old, took second place on Sunday in the open category against older, more experienced skiers. “She showed has potential to be one of Canada’s future Olympic stars,” Davis said of MacIssac-Jones.

Aussie musician switching gears Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

From the sounds of things, Australian musician Ash Grunwald takes ambidextrous to the next level. Sitting on a cajón with one foot laying down beats on the kick drum, he switches from slide guitar to electric guitar. Grunwald was already a bit of a one-man-band, but then this winter he made a big change. “I’m sort of swapping myself through two different modes right now,” he said. On the one hand is a new world of electronic music, and on the other is this phenomenal, albeit traditional, talent. “I didn’t want to keep doing the same go-crazy-on-the-stumpbox routine,” said Grunwald. “It’s really weird. I’m sort of DJing myself through my own music a little bit… half really roots-blues and the other

half is turning into a techno-nerd.” Grunwald added the electronic side of his act while doing supports for Jack Johnson’s tour in December. Taking an iPad on stage he says the experience has really changed how he looks at his work—though there are definitely things that never change. “When you’re a musician, where you live is where you tour,” he said, noting he’s recently decided to therefore limit his ventures to areas he likes to visit. Europe, Japan and Canada are definitely on that list, particularly when one considers his favorite pursuits. An avid snowboarder, this year he’s taking a portion of his time in B.C. to go heli boarding. Grunwald is touring his eighth CD. He plays the Minstrel Café Saturday, Feb. 12.

ASH GRUNWALD will perform on Saturday at the Minstrel Café.

fter a lacklustre start to the box office year, this weekend we could see turnaround. With four strong new releases this week, it does not matter which one is number one at the box office because it is the industry that is going to win. Gnomeo & Juliet is an animated retelling of the classic Shakespeare tale, in this case it is the story of two star-crossed garden gnomes who try to avoid tragedy when they are caught up in a feud be-

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis tween neighbours. Although director Kelly Asbury previously helmed Shrek 2 and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron and it features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt, the star power behind the scenes are producers Elton John

and his partner David Furnish. The soundtrack will feature songs by Elton John (including duets with Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Miley Cyrus and Kiki Dee). Also listen for the voices of Maggie Smith, Michael Caine, Ozzy Osbourne, Dolly Parton, Hulk Hogan and Shakespearean actor (and former starship captain) Patrick Stewart as a character named Bill Shakespeare. Gnomeo & Juliet started at Disney, but was shut down soon after pro-

duction started. It eventually ended up being produced at Toronto-based Starz Animation and through a strange twist of fate, is being distributed by Disney subsidiary Touchstone Pictures in the United States (it is distributed by eOne Entertainment in Canada). It is rated General with no warning is in 3D in select theatres. Speaking of made in Canada, the Justin Bieber bio-pic Never Say Never arrives in theatres this weekend.

numerous people question how a 16-year-old merits a retrospective already, but his thousands of young fans already have the answer, and the people who ask the question will likely not be seeing the movie anyway. The story of his meteoric rise to stardom is presented alongside 3D concert footage. As I write this there is no British Columbia rating for the Bieber film, but in the U.S. it is rated General with no warning. The Eagle features Channing Tatum (Step Up, G.I. Joe, Dear John) as a 2nd Century Roman soldier who embarks on a quest to find his father and the missing Ninth Legion, who never came back from a mission to Caledonia (todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scotland) 20 years earlier. The Eagle is rated PG with a warning of violence. Love him or hate him,

Adam Sandler is like comfort food for movie theatresâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;usually starring in a heart-warming story laced with sophomoric humour. Just Go With It looks like it follows that formula, as Sandler plays a plastic surgeon trying to woo a younger woman who must enlist his loyal assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to cover-up a careless lie that snowballs out of control. I tend to talk down about Sandler but I have liked quite a few of his movies, and this one looks like it could be like some of my favourites from his past such as 50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer and Anger Management. Along with Aniston, there is another â&#x20AC;&#x153;A-listâ&#x20AC;? actress in the cast, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize it at first. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I read the cast list that she was in it, so I will leave that as a surprise to see of you recognize this well known actress in the film. Just Go with It is rated PG with no warning. Now you can use the Internet to add your own non-profit event to the Capital News Stuff to Do.

here are so many people that suffer from food allergies in the world today and Celiac disease seems to be one of the most common. Celiac disease essentially is â&#x20AC;&#x153;an autoimmune disorder of the small intestine that occurs in genetically predisposed people of all ages from middle infancy onward.â&#x20AC;? Not the same as a wheat allergy, Celiac sufferers are basically not able to digest gluten, which is found in wheat, without suffering major pain and discomfort. The only treatment for them is to abide by a gluten free diet. Not so easy a few years ago when so many foods contained gluten, making the Celiac suffererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet very limited. But not so anymore! We are able to now buy gluten free breads, pastas, baked goods and even have menu selections available at savvy restaurants. Speaking of savvy, Le Plateau Bistro in Tutt Square in Kelowna is one of my favourite little lunch haunts. Serving up traditional French fare at very reasonable prices, Chef Darren Mitchell uses the best local ingredients. Mitchell and owner Michael Gauthier have also just announced the addition of gluten-free dishes to their menu. Chef Darren was also kind enough to share this gorgeous recipe at the end of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column for gluten-free Crepes Suzetteâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; merci Le Plateau! *** Another chef we love, Grant de Montreuil, has
