Legal example for drug dealers Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Lawyers are this week making final submissions for the sentencing of two Okanagan drug dealers caught by a precedent-setting conviction against organized crime. Thomas Fraser and Jason Herrick were found guilty earlier this year of trafficking as well as committing crimes for the profits of their gang. Justice Geoff Barrow’s decision was a first for B.C. courts, in that it tied the profits of drug trafficking to organized crime. As such, Crown counsel is aiming for a stiff sentence of both men. A 16-year sentence is being put forward for Fraser, 11 of which for trafficking and another five for connection to a criminal organization. Herrick’s proposed 11-year sentence would be made up of eight years for trafficking and another three for the connection to a criminal organization. “These are higher level cocaine dealers than you’d normally see,” said Crown Counsel John Walker, upon listing some of the details of the case.

Animal testing facility incites heated debate Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If there is one thing the students at UBCO want, it’s respect. Respect for animals, animals’ rights and the students and faculty who want to discuss the issues. This week, as concern flies through the media about In Vivo, the new animal testing fa-

cility being built in the Arts and Sciences II building on the Kelowna campus, the right to information and respect for those rights seems to fall at the top of the pile of concerns. “I think that this is an issue that isn’t marginal. I think it’s an issue that involves the students and the community…and it strikes at the core of what the university is about,” said Lindsay Diehl, an interdisciplinary

studies masters degree student, who noted those questioning the university’s animal testing mandate appear to be being trivialized. Diehl’s comments follow a week-long uproar which began when student reporter Robyn Travis learned through the campus tours program about a new animal testing lab on campus and started asking questions. “As a student and mem-

ber of the community, it would have been nice to be told about it,” she said. A journalist for the Phoenix student newspaper, Travis said she felt a responsibility to ensure that the information was made public. She contacted the Vancouver campus public relations department, the dean of her faculty and the researchers responsible for the new lab, but

received no calls. While she’s hoping for better response this week, she found the entire episode disappointing, saying she was surprised at how difficult it was to get information. The one biology professor charged with overseeing the facility who did speak to her, is quoted in her article as saySee Debate A3

▼ UBCO

Access requests to animal testing facility being denied Debate from A1 ing the facility was downplayed for the protection of the research and researchers involved. It’s a point UBC vicepresident of research John Hepburn cannot overstate. “I’ve often said there’s more regulations around the use of animals in research than around the use of humans,” said Hepburn. With the advent of the UBCO’s new medical school, UBCO has been able to bring hundreds of thousands of dollars of new research equipment to the campus, which will attract millions in research dollars and bring some of the best researchers in the world to town, he said. Protecting that research mandate, and the research involved, is critical to the success of the program, he pointed out, stating this means the university must work with animals. “One of our primate researchers has received threatening calls late at night,” he said. The researcher was doing Parkinson’s disease research on monkeys. Hepburn was clear UBC has never dealt with overt threats to any researcher’s safety at either campus and stated he has respect for the position of

Stop UBC Animal Research, the primary group protesting UBC’s animal testing, though he does not agree with it. The group was formed last February with 32 founding members and has grown to over 500 on its email alert list as it wages a very public battle over issues like the treatment of endangered sea turtles, the monkeys in that Parkinson’s disease study and cats used in spinal research. “They don’t talk about the numbers of animals or what kinds of animals are being used,” said Brian Vincent, spokesperson for the group. He agrees with the students that transparency is a huge problem, and he would like to see information on every experiment conducted posted to the web as the U.S. National Institutes of Health. It’s a feat Hepburn says would be incredibly costly, likely unnecessary, and would eliminate investment in any pharmaceutical research. “The drug industry relies on the protection of ideas. If everybody has access to the same idea, then why would anybody invest in it?” he said. All animal testing facilities must be built to Canadian Council on Animal Care standards.

CONTRIBUTED

UBC vice-president of research John Hepburn: “I’ve

often said there’s more regulations around the use of animals in research than around the use of humans.” The researchers have to find funding, which comes from government agencies or companies with ethical guidelines. There is also an ethics committee at the university comprised of scientists, veterinarians and general community members, one of whom has traditionally been a senior person from the SPCA at UBC. “What the committee approves is something called a research protocol and we actually have a full-time veterinarian who reports differently, and is hired with a different budget away from the animal care budget,

who reviews the research to make sure it is following the protocol,” Hepburn said. This form of post-approval monitoring is not required of the university and has only been in place for approximately a year, he added. Nevertheless, when UBCO professor Jodey Castricano, whose work deals with the ethics of animal testing, began asking questions, she too was not impressed with the answers she recieved. Castricano points to research on everything from strokes to HIV to that Parkinson’s disease research to show

that there is just as much to learn from the human body as animals—if not more. She believes people really need to question whether animal testing actually advances medical science. “We start talking about human benefits and our minds go numb,” she said, pointing out there is very little emphasis on just how much can be learned without the animals. The professor asked to see the facility, but was turned away because the university says the animals cannot be contaminated by having those who are not trained in how to move through the lab come through the facility. When she asked for the tour, the facility, which is set to open next fall, was empty, she said. “It’s really difficult for people to wrap their minds around the idea that animals are subjects of their own lives,” said Castricano. At various points in history, women, slaves and Jewish people have all been in the same position, treated like we currently treat animals— without rights. She contends the university is overlooking the fact that science, too, is a social phenomenon and,

What do you think…

“I’m a graduate with a degree in science so I’m used to universities doing animal testing. In my opinion it’s totally acceptable. We don’t have a lot of people we can test on, so it’s a no brainer.”

“Animals have rights too…but they can’t speak, so it’s not fair. I’m against harming animals, so I don’t think it’s right.”

therefore, the very idea of animal testing should subject to moral analysis, not removed from it. The Parkinson’s disease research referenced by the head of research, for example, is testing only a simulation of the disease. Monkeys cannot get Parkinson’s disease, so it’s worth questioning how much is really being learned by injecting the animals with met-

als to recreate symptoms, she said. Far more, could be accomplished by studying people with the actual disease, she contends. In the meantime, the students who penned the original article in The Phoenix Newspaper say they’re still waiting on more answers from the university.

t’s been a bit of a shock to the system, but I think the warmer weather coming up in the next week or so should help a bit. I found our hummingbirds, red-winged blackbirds and other migrants, way south of here, when I embarked on a short migration of my own during February. I think I understand now why they take that long trip southward every fall and don’t return until the longer days and warmer weather of spring encourage the buds to swell and the bugs to hatch. As I lazed around the pool and hiked the hills, I watched my winged buddies of summer flit from flower to flower, and realized not only would I not be lounging poolside in the -17 C temperatures here in the valley, but there wouldn’t be any flowers for them to enjoy adjacent to me either. It’s all become much clearer—this migration thing, I mean. But, I’m back now and spring is actually just around the corner, along

Hikers and bikers: Take the appearance of mud as a warning that if you venture into it during snowmelt and as the frost leaves the ground, you’ll not only get dirty, you’ll also be damaging fragile baby grasses and plants just as they try and sprout from the cold ground.

Smart development benefit hoped for Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It will likely be next week before residents in Glenmore learn how a new sustainability grant program initiated by the university is set to improve their neighbourhood. UBCO has set aside $40,000 to be given out in $10,000 grants to studies promoting sustainability in the area. “We think it’s a phenomenal initiative,” said John Harling, Glenmore Residents’ Association president. “It’s a little bit nebulous, though, because it’s a bit difficult to pin it down.” Harling said the residents met with both Michelle Cam, from the City of Kelowna, and Leanne Bilodeau, UBCO’s director of

sustainability, and are still unclear as to exactly what sustainability means, and therefore, what types of study fall under the purview of the funding. The group had not heard from any academics making pitches for the money, either, though they have several suggestions of areas which they would like to see reviewed. “We don’t have a community centre, a recreational facility, services. There’s a walk-in (medical) clinic, but very little else. We need to have some things where you can walk to,” said Harling. The residents feel the pace of development in Glenmore has fragmented the valley with thoroughfares, slicing and dicing what was once largely orchards into spaces too difficult to traverse on foot.

The result does not encourage the commercial development that’s needed to fill in the small nodes of neighbourhood because prospective business owners can’t see the traffic the foot-traffic they might get and those who don’t want to build a space have nowhere to put their office or shop. “I think the city was quite surprised when we said we need more commercial development, but there’s nothing out there right now,” Harling added. Rather than find themselves in a community where everyone commutes by car to work and stays behind their locked garage doors at night, Harling said the association wants to see policies, and first the studies, which would encourage smart development. The residents are concerned

about loss of wildlife—like depletion of the turtle population at Union Road—access to more community gardens and adding recreational facilities. There is also serious concern about the culverts on Brandt’s Creek, safer walking routes for school children and protection of parkland. “We’re absolutely delighted they’ve chosen this area to have the projects,” he said. “We hope this will actually lead to some different attention given to growth because we want some quality of life back.” The grants were to be allocated on March 4, but were held up at the review committee level within UBCO; an announcement is expected next week. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

▼ HOUSE TOUR

Designer Digs success for SmartRisk program The second annual Designer Digs tour took place last Friday night and deemed an outstanding success by ticket holders. “The guests absolutely loved the event and the great variety the homes on the tour provided. We focus on real homes lived in by real people and I think it is that uniqueness and individuality that everyone loves,” said event chair Tracey Wikenheiser. The six homes were from all areas of Kelowna. The participating designers were Deb and Roz Berard of Berard Design Group., Leigh Blackburn of Hatch Interiors, Ken Donovel and Cheryl Bobbie of Pureform Modern Living, Carla Fisher of Sticks and Stones Design group, Brenda Shuwera of Cashmere Design, Heather Fowler of Fowler Interior Design and Barbie Ross. Funds raised through the tour and silent auction are donated to SmartRisk —a charitable organization whose mission is to empower youth through education, programming and policy change. Youth are taught to recognize and manage their risks of injury in the smartest ways possible. SmartRisk was brought to Kelowna by Scott and Cynthia Walker, honourary chairs of Designer Digs. Their leadership has resulted in the program being available in eight

Kelowna high schools. Student leaders are trained the principles of SmartRisk and go on to coach their peers to make better choices—buckle up, look first, wear the gear, get trained, drive sober. The event raised approximately $24,000, which will stay in the

community to fund SmartRisk in Kelowna high schools. The cost to run SmartRisk in all eight Kelowna high schools is $40,000. “We still hope to raise the funds needed to continue SmartRisk in all of the high schools and continue to accept donations,” Wikenheiser said.

Lake Country apple orchardist recognized for quality of his crop Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Lake Country orchardist Tarsem Dhoot was presented with the Compact Orchard Award Thursday at the industry’s annual horticulture forum in Kelowna. Orchard industry awards were presented at the first B.C. Tree Fruit Horticultural Symposium organized jointly by the Okanagan Packinghouse and Fieldmen’s Group and the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association. In previous years, a horticultural forum has

been hosted in Penticton by the BCFGA, and a fieldmen’s workshop in Kelowna. This year, they joined forces to put on one larger event, and it will be followed by a second day of grower meetings today focussed on the cherry industry. That will include the annual meeting of the Okanagan-Kootenay Cherry Growers’ Association and the annual election of officers, as well as presentations on research into cherry growing issues. Nearly 300 growers

registered for this year’s event, compared to 180 at the forum last year. It includes a major display of equipment and products for the industry. Growers heard researchers from U.S. universities talk about current research into how best to grow larger apples, pollen tube growth and the effects of lime-sulphur, chemical thinning of fruit, the Sterile Insect Release program, controlling critters in the orchard, growing peaches, maintaining spray equipment, the Environmental Farm Practices program and farm

safety. Today, growers will learn about Spotted Wing Drosophila, a new pest of soft fruits and grapes, cherry splitting, mildew, nutrition and early cherry varieties developed at the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland. Three awards are presented annually at the event, to growers judged to have grown the top fruit in different categories. Dhoot has his master’s degree in agriculture and his family operates 10.5 acres of Ambrosia, Gala and McIntosh apples.

Kelowna Seed Swap offers gardeners an array of options Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Despite this week’s snow showers, the time to put the first seeds in the ground is coming up fast, and the annual Kelowna Seed Swap this Saturday is a unique opportunity to find rare and heritage options. Organizer Jon Alcock, of Sunshine Farm in southeast Kelowna, notes that two of the varieties of tomatoes he has available have actually been rescued from oblivion by

Seeds of Diversity and he now grows them. Both are varieties developed some 40 years ago by what is now the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland, and were commercially grown in that era, but they no longer are grown for major markets. Both the Summerjet and the Sugawara were developed at Summerland for their resistance to verticillium, a fungus that can attack tomato plants, with disastrous results. “When I saw them

available through Seeds of Diversity, I knew I had to grow them,” comments Alcock, who grows a wide variety of heritage tomatoes, in all colours and stripes, and offers the seeds for sale at the seed swap and through his website: www.sunshinefarm.net Alcock says he is encouraged to see more and more people planting a garden and producing some of their own food. “We are even getting requests from schools wanting to have a garden.

University students want to learn how to produce food, access space to do so, and mentoring urban gardeners producing great quantities of food on unused garden space in backyards. People wanting to learn what our parents’ generation took for granted—how to grow food in a garden,” he commented. He notes that many varieties of food plants which have been dropped by the large corporate seed companies over the years can still be found at

on their Hollywood Road Education Centre site. “The intent is still there to have a look at the acreage there at the school board site and then have a look at moving it to the Hollywood Road site,” said Rolli Cacchioni, chairman of the board. “But we want everybody to really get a chance to look at it.” With labour costs down and land costs rebounding, a report before the board of education indicates school district staff see a win-

dow of opportunity to rebuild. But as the current site would need to be rezoned to get the full market value out of the property, the school district has decided to ask for requests for proposals from the development community rather than simply selling the land. The current building was constructed in 1978. An assessment of the Hollywood Road property is also required. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

This is the eighth or ninth year the Alcocks have organized the seed swap in Kelowna, being held in ‘The Pit’ at Okanagan College on KLO Road again this year, with seven regional seed sellers offering open pollinated

heritage varieties at their booths. As well, there will be people selling ancillary products such as garlic, plants, honey, grains from Fieldstone Granary in Armstrong and other artisanal products. Organizations such as the community gardens society, Okanagan Heritage Society and Seeds of

Diversity, which will have a seed swap table where you can take your seeds to exchange, will also be there hosting booths. The event is being held in conjunction with the Travelling World Community Film Festival. The Seed Swap takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 12. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Controversial computer software system still online Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Central Okanagan School District superintendent of schools says he does not believe the province will abandon its controversial new computer system, despite reports indicating the BCeSIS will cease and desist. After months of debate, and with 10 school districts (including the local one) poised to

give feedback on an independent troubleshooting task force for the province, Vancouver Sun reporter Janet Steffenhagen blogged this week about the software being dropped. But the head of the local school system isn’t buying it. “I see no official communication,” Hugh Gloster told the Central Okanagan’s board of education during the regularly

scheduled meeting Wednesday. Steffenhagen indicated officials in the Cowichan school district had been told it would be dropped at some point in the near future as the software program had been bought by another company. Gloster said, to his understanding, the new owners of the studenttracking information system own two other software programs and he

foresees the school system might wind up with some hybrid of the three. Meanwhile, his staff are still planning to provide feedback for the ministry to help troubleshoot its unprecedented and seemingly unending problems as part of the task force, he said.

TEACHING ASSISTANCE

The school district will throw $95,000 toward additional teaching time to ensure elementary schools where students are struggling the most see improvements.

Seven of the nine schools identified by the district as falling below targeted performance levels will share 14 half days of teacher-on-call time to try and solve specific problems for students “COTA was looking for $250,000,” Gloster said referencing the teacher’s union. “(The) proposal was for 20 teachers off the TOC lists, starting after spring break, but there is no guarantee those people would be trained to deal with the needs.” Gloster said his years

in teaching have shown him that the teacher needs to be specifically trained to deal with an issue, like reading, before they sit down with the kids who are all struggling to learn how to read. He proposed students be placed in targeted work groups with a teacher trained to deal with the specific problem at hand, and reportedly received COTA’s approval—although a representative was not available to confirm before school trustees voted on the matter. The funding comes

Lawyers make sentencing submissions Dealers from A1 explained, were moving a lot of cocaine until they were busted in 2007 after a lengthy undercover operation. “They were trafficking in in Kelowna, Penticton and Oliver,” said Walker, noting they were going through about one to two kilos a week, and bringing in a gross monthly profit of $50,000. “Fraser was the leader and got others to traffic for him.” And, he explained, Fraser wasn’t a benevolent employer. Threatening “to smash heads in” the ring-leader was able to ensure that his

employees didn’t mouth off, and the competition was kept at bay. Fraser wasn’t new to the drug trade either, explained Walker. Before the 2007 arrest, where cops confiscated six kilograms of cocaine, 450 ecstasy tablets, $72,000 cash and two vehicles, he had been convicted of dealing in Penticton. That conviction came with a five year sentence, and it was while he was on bail that the new crimes occurred. “He was not deterred by the Penticton charges,” said Walker. “Rather than be deterred, he moved to Kelowna, changed his methods…and there was an es-

calation of trafficking.” Herrick, on the other hand, was Fraser’s primary employee. He kept ledgers, was seen moving drugs around storage units, and breaking it down from bulk quantities to smaller doses, for distribution. While he doesn’t have a criminal record, Walker said that he turned down the opportunity to live a law abiding life by choosing crime. While facts of the case paint Fraser a hardened criminal, his defence lawyer Doug Jevning says his client has reformed since his arrest and is looking for a truncated term of imprisonment.

“My friends’s suggestions are overly aggressive,” he said. Fraser has been in jail since the time of his arrest, and has made an impression on numerous people within the system, said Jevning. “Fraser has not wasted his time,” he said. Reading from one of a number of letters submitted on Fraser’s behalf, Jevning told the court he’s not only bettered himself, but also the lives of others he was incarcerated with. “He started a creative writing program, and an inmate pre-release program,” he said. The pre-release program is said to have helped 100 inmates get their bearings upon being released, and was devised by Fraser after realizing that B.C. jails were dealing with a revolving door problem that could easily be remedied. “Fraser made a list of things inmates would need to integrate successfully,” said Jevning. Apparently many of his peers were without identification, an address upon release, access to social services and any tools to help them stay out of prison. The work he’s doing within the system these days, is a far cry from the man who entered prison,” well entrenched in the drug culture” he said, and that among other details should be reflected in his sentence. Jevning will continue his submissions Friday, and Herricks’ lawyer will make his as well. Judge Barrow said he’ll be ready to make his decision next week.

Clean Air Day poster contest seeks car-free visions This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme for the 2011 Central Okanagan Clean Air Day poster contest is: My Street, Car Free. Students in kindergarten through Grade 12 are encouraged to participate in Clean Air Day 2011 by submitting a poster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vehicles are responsible for most of the air pollution in Kelowna and the Central Okanagan,â&#x20AC;? said Kate Bergen, regional air quality program coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage students to imagine what their neighbourhood would look like with fewer cars and how this can help our environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walking, biking and other forms of active transportation are great ways to reduce pollution and help us all breathe a little easier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Entries should promote alternative transportation or other ideas for reducing the number of cars on the street.â&#x20AC;? Posters must be submitted to the attention of Kate Bergen, Kelowna City Hall, 1435 Water Street, V1Y 1J4, no later than April 1. The poster contest winner will have an opportunity to meet Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shep-

herd and receive a new bicycle courtesy of Kelowna Cycle.

The winning poster will be professionally printed and displayed

throughout the community to promote Clean Air Day on Wednesday, June

Standardize the school calendar

A

cross the Lower Mainland school board trustees are grappling with the issue of what school calendar best suits their district. It’s a time-consuming, highly controversial process, the necessity itself debatable, considering the ministry of education set a standard one-week break long ago—and then allowed school boards to change the program. For example, the Abbotsford School District has been on a two-week spring break for several years, having added eight

minutes to every elementary school day and nine to the secondary day to compensate for lost days. Now trustees have frustrated many parents and teachers with a suggestion of moving the Christmas break, moving spring break and reducing the number of days off. Such a schedule would add more than $400,000 in costs to pay for the additional instruction days. Against a backdrop of school closures and tight budgeting, that

plan questions the principle of financial stewardship. Other boards are also changing their calendars and there may soon be little consistency across the province, or even the region. Langley and Maple Ridge school districts are looking at lengthening their school day and adding a week at spring break, in order to save money. Vancouver added 10 days off and lengthened the school day to save $1.2 million. Meanwhile, Chilliwack is considering a re-

turn to a one-week spring break. There is a standard school calendar set out by the education ministry, which presumably contained sound reasoning in its creation. However, if factors have changed, and there are significant savings to be realized in two-week spring breaks, then let the education ministry investigate this potential, considered alongside education concerns, and render a decision that will become standard for the province. Enough district tinkering.

Adulthood sheds light on other side of childhood beliefs

A

t 12, I saw a picture of an animal behind bars, tortured, seemingly shedding tears and for the first—likely last—time I was spurred into political action. Following the instructions on the page, I filled out a form and mailed it away to an address that promised to send me material that would help me put an end to animal cruelty. Pre-Internet times, however, were a drag, as fewer people seem to remember each day, so it couldn’t happen overnight. Day-after-day the mailbox was thoroughly inspected in hopes my material would arrive. In the weeks that passed, I saw each dog and cat as a potential victim to some form of hateful exploitation,

and I knew the sooner I got my hands on the package the sooner I could save them. Problem was, I learned upon the coveted material’s arrival, it meant I’d have to make some serious decisions. To end their torture I’d have to get rid of my favourite lipbalm, because its maker tested it on something furry and lovable. The shampoo my mother bought was responsible for countless creatures’ torture. Mascara? Never again. The list of culprits was endless, but I could do my part. Not only could

I boycott those products,

KATHARTIC I’d ensure others did as

well. With reams of newly acquired “tested on animals” stickers and a list of sinners in my posKathy session I headed to the Michaels mall. As covertly as one who had given up washing her hair with shampoo could be, I sneaked into every drug and department store with stickers up my sleeves and dispensed them on all the products on my hit-list. Thanks to a diminished perspective on the world, I believed I’d done my part and researched products that

would allow me to be presentable and cruelty-free and that carried on for years. Unless something sported a cruelty-free label, I wasn’t going to use it, and I continued on colour-free, conscience clear, for years to come. Adulthood, unfortunately, rolled around and the clarity of perspective that comes from youth was stripped away. With the understanding that virtually every single prescription drug sold across the world required animal research and testing for their development, I came to understand humans I loved, were beneficiaries, if not living, because of science shaped by animal testing.

It was a realization that gave rise to a shedding of previous convictions that I had been so easily entrenched in. That said, I still believe there needs to be some transparency when it comes to the practice, and respect for those who have gone out of their way this week to turn the spotlight on the facility at UBC Okanagan. I may not agree with all the lines they’re spewing this week, but a vestigial part of my being is cheering them on in their crusade.

The matter has been tried in court and they have been found guilty by the Canadian Federal Court of Appeal for falsifying returns. The appropriate legal

remedy for violating the Elections Act is that they be barred from Parliament. Those candidates who are themselves also members of the legal profession should be disbarred. It was a money laundering scam, they have been caught, and found guilty. Eugene Parks, Victoria

Animals need human protection by way of spay and neuter programs To the editor: We all know that most families have pets; we like to see our children and pets grow together, not mentioning how valuable the friendship of a pet is for those shy children. But are we good guardians of our pets that bring so much joy into our lives? Do we take charge when Mother Nature lets a five-month-old kitten get pregnant? When momma cat has kittens three to four times

It’s so tempting—hundreds of ads for cute, ‘free’ kittens to choose from— on an impulse, without a bit of thinking ahead.

the alley, endlessly repeating the vicious and cruel process. As a result, the situation in the valley is disastrous. Last year so many cats were dumped on our local SPCA that the shelter stopped taking in cats and started putting folks on a waiting list. There are more than 200 people on the list now. Many healthy cats are being euthanized by their owners, many are dumped elsewhere, the numbers of strays fighting

to survive are escalating. It’s time to stop the cycle. Please, stop making excuses. Help is available. If you are in a low income group, get in touch with the SPCA or The Okanagan Humane Society (a small group of volunteers—ask any vet). Spay/neuter with assistance will cost you between $40 and $60 (dogs cost more than cats). Our regional district helps in the process by awarding the SPCA with

a large grant for the lsat 10 years. A small grant goes to the Humane Society. So, both the SPCA and the Humane Society can help those of you who cannot afford the costs. Spring is here and many cats are already pregnant. Please, do not hesitate. Be responsible adults, good parents and good citizens. An encourage your neighbours. Hellena Pol, Kelowna

Global cost of dementia will keep rising A

recent report from the London-based organization Alzheimer’s Disease International has found the global cost of dementia will exceed $604 billion this year—roughly one per cent of the world’s gross domestic product. According to this report (the World Alzheimer Report 2010), if dementia care were a country, it would be the world’s 18th largest economy and if it were a company it would be the world’s largest by annual revenue—beating out retail giant Wal-Mart and Exxon Mobil. These are numbers that grab our attention. Dementia, caused by several disorders and most commonly Alzheimer’s disease, is on the rise as the world’s population ages. What are we, as individual nations and as a global society, doing about it? Right now it is estimated 35 million peo-

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer ple have dementia worldwide and the figure is expected to double every 20 years—and the costs will rise accordingly. Researchers believe the global cost of caring for those with dementia will surpass $1 trillion by 2030. Not surprisingly, 70 per cent of these costs are paid in North America and Western Europe. Costs are attributed to informal care by family members, direct costs of social care by community professionals and residential home settings and direct medical costs. This report emphasized the importance for countries and the world to make dementia a prior-

ity when creating health care policy in the coming years. Few countries have strategies in place to deal with the quickly increasing numbers of individuals experiencing dementia. While England, France and Australia do have these policy strategies in place, both Canada and the United States do not. This is in spite of the fact that the U.S. is currently ranked as the highest when it comes to the cost of caring for a person with dementia. In our own country, the Alzheimer’s Society and other advocates have been pushing for a federal strategy on dementia care for some time. In a 2009 analysis, the Canadian Institute for Health Information found that dementia accounted for nearly a quarter of all acute care hospitalizations even while finding such hospitalizations were often longer than necessary or not

appropriate for meeting the ongoing care needs of those with dementia. We simply do not have the resources to continue dealing with dementia in an ad-hoc way. As the numbers of patients increase, it is becoming increasingly clear we need a comprehensive federal strategy for dementia care. Ongoing research into

treatments and prevention will also need to be one of the cornerstones of any strategy as there is currently no satisfactory treatment solution for those living with dementia. Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials. 250-862-8141 dr@okanaganclinicaltrials.com

Markus Thiel allergies later in life. Researchers examined blood levels of more than 3,100 children and adolescents and 3,400 adults. Interestingly enough, they found there was a

significant association between low vitamin D levels and allergies in children, but not in adults. In their study they found that the subjects between the age of one and 21 years of age with low vitamin D levels were at a significantly increased risk of developing food sensitivities and allergies to 11 of the 17 allergens tested which included environmental and food allergies. As an example, they

found that children with less than 15 ng of vitamin D per milliliter of blood were 2.4 times more likely to have allergies to peanuts as opposed to children with sufficient levels. They defined sufficient levels of vitamin D as 30 ng of vitamin D per milliliter of blood. In addition, children and adolescents with low vitamin D levels also had an additional increased risk of allergic reactions and sensitization to

shrimp, dogs, cockroaches, ragweed, rye grass and thistle. The researchers were careful to say that their findings do not make a direct correlation between vitamin D insufficiency and allergies in children and adults but attention should be given so that they should get adequate amounts of vitamin D while they’re young. The researchers attributed these findings to the anti-inflammatory effects

that vitamin D has on the body. Dr. Melamed stated that the latest dietary recommendations for children is 600 international unit’s of vitamin D daily in an attempt to keep them away from deficiency. Vitamin D is a class of vitamins that is considered fat-soluble. Vitamin D is produced when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun or artificial sources. Vitamin D can also naturally occur in some food sources which include fatty fish, eggs and meat in addition to lightexposed mushrooms. However, to ensure

proper serum levels, it is important to supplement with it appropriately. In addition, vitamin D also promotes calcium absorption in the gut and allows for normal mineralization of bone. It is necessary for bone growth and bone remodeling. It has also been indicated in modulating normal cell growth, assisting in neuromuscular and immune function and reduction of global inflammation throughout the body. As one can see, it is an all too important supplement for the growing body and should not be overlooked. Markus Thiel is a doctor of chiropractic. askdrthiel@shaw.ca

Soccer prowess on school field upsets neighbour Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

One might say neighbours surrounding Dorothea Walker Elementary School are taking a serious kick in the teeth over local sports programming. At Wednesday’s Central Okanagan board of education meeting, Irvin Taylor managed to get school trustees on board with a plan to sort out how to stop the world’s fastest growing sport from taking over his life. “I just think we should have some kind of compromise so we can have some breaks,” said Taylor. He contends the fields are rented to children and teens morning, noon and night and, at times, see large groups lining up en masse to pelt balls at and over his fence.

Irvin says the streets are filled with cars, the balls constantly ring along the chain-link fencing and games or practices are scheduled on an unending continuum which takes little count of the neighbours’ needs for downtime. And then there is the disrespect they show by climbing into his yard without permission. “When the U15/U16 players are on the field,j they can shoot it like Pelé, that’s my age of soccer,” he said. “…When my twoyear-old granddaughter comes over…I’m going to be terrified when she’s in the backyard.” The trustees acknowledged the soccer association had largely dismissed the concerns and committed to looking into the matter.-

▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

Study delves into why students leave university or college

R

ecently, the provincial government published a paper titled Without a Trace, which looked at students who left a college or university and didn’t return. The report included surveying 5,036 former students who left a B.C. post-secondary institution in 2009 and have yet to reenrol. Some of the most interesting data from this report focused on the type of student who left and explored a number of variables. More women exited a B.C. post-secondary institution than their male counterparts, by a margin of 14 per cent. Forty-four per cent of the leavers were from colleges and institutes, 56 per cent were from B.C. universities. The median age of the students leaving was 26 years.

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens Seventy-one per cent of the students who left had less than 30 credits. This means that these students were most likely in first-year as most programs define one year as 30 credits. The report also classified these students as happy and unhappy leavers. Happy leavers were those who stayed as long as they had planned or who felt they had met their goal. On the flip side, unhappy leavers didn’t feel they had met their goal and left before they had planned to. Separating the leavers in these two distinct

groups allowed the researchers to see if differences existed. For example, 80 per cent of leavers said the college or university they left was their first choice at the time of enrolment. The reason they decided on that one school varied between the happy and unhappy leavers. Happy leavers based their decision on the school’s reputation and the programs they offered. Yet unhappy leavers tended to pick their school based on location and having friends who were enrolled at the same place. When it came to services, happy leavers rated program advising as high while the unhappy leavers had problems with advising. Happy leavers enjoyed their courses and felt a sense of belonging, whereas unhappy leavers tended to rate some of

their courses as poor quality and didn’t get the same sense of being part of the campus community. On the whole, both groups said the quality of instruction was good and overall they were satisfied with the education they received. So why did they leave? To help colleges and universities find better ways to keep students, the survey only asked the unhappy leavers this question. The number one reason the unhappy students left was because of personal circumstances. I see this often in my job where a student will request a withdrawal due to medical or family issues. The reason they are dropping out has nothing to do with school; it has more to do with them not being able to cope with other life issues and jug-

▼ CRIME

Senior uncooperative after pot bust A 71-year-old Lake Country man facing marijuana possession related charges has been uncooperative with Lake Country RCMP. The police executed a drug search warrant on Monday, March 7, 4:45 p.m., at a residence in the 12000 block of Lake Hill Drive. Inside the residence, police found 990 marijuana plants in various growth stages as well as a quantity of processed and packaged marijuana. A hydro electrical byrpass was also found, along with an improperly stored rifle. Police arrested the 71-year-old man inside the residence, and took him to the Kelowna RCMP detachment in order to process him so he could be released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. But the man refused to provide his name to police and would not cooperate with attempts to identify him. A background check on his fingerprints revealed his name to be William Jones-Cook. But Jones-Cook refused to sign the promise to appear document and further refused to acknowledge that he would honour an order to appear in court at a later date.

Police had no choice but to keep him in custody. He appeared in court on Tuesday and was remanded to appear again

Wednesday. Jones-Cook now faces charges of production of a controlled substance, possession for the purpose

of trafficking and theft of hydro electricity. He is known to police for prior drug and Criminal Code offences.

gle school at the same time. The other top four reasons were a change of plans regarding the program and getting a job in that field, disappointment with the institution, and financial issues. Other reasons were lost motivation, disappointment with grades or failure in a program, they got a job or their job situation changed, school wasn’t convenient (this could be getting to and from school or class scheduling conflicting with work or family ob-

ligations), and they had met their goal and completed all the courses they wanted. This last one is interesting, because most of us think if a person is going to enrol in a program they plan on getting a credential. But the data from this report tells us that not all students who go to a college or university plan on completing a credential. Many leavers were happy with the education they received and did feel they had met their goals. For those of us who

work in post-secondary education and for parents of high school students, this report shows us that for some students, once they receive the knowledge they are looking for in the classroom, they may consider themselves ready to move on. A follow-up study with these leavers would probably be a good idea. I wouldn’t be surprised if this group regularly moved in and out of post-secondary education.

Incentive to replace inefficient wood stoves The regional air quality program will give consumers a $250 rebate (funding is limited) between now and April 30 if they purchase a new EPA/CSA emission-approved wood, gas, pellet or electric appliance and replace their old smokebelching wood stove up. Participating manufacturers, distributors and retailers also offer a minimum rebate of $150 for a new EPA/CSA approved replacement appliances.

Consumers receive the rebate when they surrender their old wood burning appliance for recycling. Participating retailers will take care of recycling your old stove and complete all the necessary paperwork for the rebates. It’s estimated more than 20,000 valley homes are still equipped with inefficient conventional wood stoves or masonry fireplaces. And chances are, if they’re being used, they’re pumping out pollutants that reduce

our air quality. Regional air quality program coordinator Kate Bergen said: “There’s no disputing that wood stove smoke contributes to poor air quality throughout the Central Okanagan. By replacing old wood burning fireplaces and stoves with newer technology-certified appliances, homeowners will burn 1/3 less wood and reduce smoke by up to 90 per cent. “And that will help us all breathe a little easier.”

Callahan’s ‘greasier’ side what Rockets need Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It’s a safe bet Mitchell Callahan will be keeping his gloves on this weekend as the Kelowna Rockets play a home and home series with the Kamloops Blazers. Callahan, the rugged 19-year-old winger, suffered a cut to his finger that required seven stitches in Kelowna’s 3-1 win Wednesday night against Tri-City. But that didn’t stop him from returning to the game and scoring the game winning goal in the third period with a hand that was cramping up. “I don’t like to miss any games so it was something I had to battle through,” said Callahan, who converted a pass from Shane McColgan to

score the winner. “Shane makes great passes. I was lucky enough to get open and he got it to me. I shot it and it just trickled in but it’s something I will take.” Rockets coaches were happy to see Callahan back to his scrappy best, despite suffering the injury to his hand when a linesman inadvertently stepped on his hand after a first period fight. “He scored a very key goal for us,” said head coach Ryan Huska. “That’s what we need out of him. That was the greasier side of Mitchell Callahan but when he brings that he plays his best games.” The win on Wednesday gave the Rockets a solid grip on first place in the WHL B.C. division. Combined with a Vancouver loss, the Rockets

moved eight points ahead of Vancouver with both teams having six games remaining in the season, including two against each other. This weekend the Rockets head into a home and home series with the Kamloops Blazers. Kamloops is in a battle of its own, sitting tied with Prince George for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. “We have to try and keep building on what we were able to do (Wednesday),” said Huska. “Kamloops is going to be a team that is very desperate and we have to make sure we are ready for that.” The Rockets and Blazers will play Friday night in Kamloops before coming back to Kelowna for the rematch on Saturday night at Prospera Place.

Warriors even series with Vernon Vipers at a game apiece

ANDY HOLMES/CONTRIBUTED

TYLER KRAUSE (right) puts home one of his two goals Wednesday, as the Westside Warriors evened its second round BCHL playoff series with Vernon at a game apiece.

It’s now down to a best-of-five playoff series between the Westside Warriors and the Vernon Vipers. The Warriors earned a split of the first two games in its second round B.C. Hockey League playoff series in Vernon earlier this week, winning 5-2 on Wednesday night after the Vipers won the first game of the series 3-2 on Tuesday. Tyler Krause scored twice while Kevin Boyle turned in another rocksolid goaltending per-

formance in the game two win. “In any series you go into the first two games on the road and you’re looking for a split,” said Warriors coach Darren Yopyk. “We made a seven game series into a five game series and now we’re looking forward to coming home and playing in front of our wonderful fans in Westside.” Game three is tonight (Friday) in West Kelowna while game 0 is Saturday. On Wednesday Quinn Gould, Alex Grieve and

Tyler Brickler also scored for Westside. Boyle had another blockbuster night stopping 38 shots while the Warriors only mustered 24 shots against Vernon. Westside went 1-for-4 with the man advantage, while Vernon went 1-for5. “Vernon played hard both nights and competed hard,” said Yopyk. “Like everyone suspected this should be a good series.” The Warriors played without one of their best

forwards as Grayson Downing sat out the game with an upper body injury. His status is questionable for Friday night’s game. The Warriors saw the return of Max French after his two game suspension dating back to game six of the first round versus Trail. “It’s a best of five now and we need to take it one game at a time, put our best foot forward and try to come out with a win on Friday and go from there,” said Yopyk.

▼ SWIMMING

More Aquajets qualify for Western Canadian Champs What a difference a year has made for the Kelowna Aquajets. The local swim club placed 12th overall in team competition with 834 points at the B.C. AAA short course championships last weekend in Victoria. That’s a jump of nine places from 21st in 2010 with an improvement of more than 500 points. The Jets sent 11 swimmers to the event—10 scored points—who

brought home 18 medals, broke 14 club records, qualified two more swimmers for Western Canadian Championships and two more for Age Group Championships in Montreal this July. “I could not have asked for a better competition from the team this weekend,” said Peter Wilkins, Aquajets head coach. “They were simply amazing all weekend long, representing Kelowna and the club well above

expectations.” Aquajet Clarisse Obedkoff, 11, currently in her second year with the club, came home with an impressive haul and had to do it while recovering from the flu. Obedkoff placed first in her 400IM, 200 free and 100 back, and was second in her 200IM and 200 fly qualifying for Age Group Championships in the 200 fly event with a time of 2:40.90. One age group above, teammate Katie Dunlop,

12, had the swim meet of her life, winning her first ever provincial medals, qualifying for Age Group Championships and breaking two club records (1985, 1975). Dunlop dropped huge time in the 400IM (21 seconds) and the 200 free (11 seconds) to earn a pair of silvers, along with her bronze capping of the meet Sunday night in the 400 free. Tia Itterman, 13, swam hard all weekend with plenty of best times in arguably the most competitive age group in the meet, breaking through on her last event of the meet to make her first final in the 200 free, narrowly missing a medal, placing fourth in 2:11.60 and earning her a Western Canadian qualifying time. Monique Kennedy, coming off a strong meet in Kamloops a few weeks ago showed her experience, handling the pressure well and contributing to the medal haul with a silver in the 200 fly. Teammate Sydney Rankmore, in her first year as an Aquajet, showed a lot of poise, swimming best times every time she

Katie Dunlop hit the water, and qualifying for a final in the 400 IM, placing seventh and contributing points for the team. On the boys side Josh Zakala, kicked the weekend off for the team on Thursday night dropping 45 seconds off his 1500 free on his way to first place by a few lengths of

the pool. His time of 17:52 is a new club record, and currently the second fastest time in the country for his age. Zakala went on to win two more gold and three silver medals all the while shattering six clubs records, one of which was from 1978. Teammate Christian

Desjarlais proved his versatility, swimming his secondary events all weekend, making finals and more Western standards all the while winning the 100 fly (58.06) and bringing in 2 bronze medals in the 200 free (1:53.72) and 100 free (52.98). Desjarlais, 17, currently deciding his plans for next year, with a few University scholarships on the table, made history on the weekend breaking two club records in the 100 fly, and 200 free. Rounding out the boys side, Erik Kruger had another great weekend, placing second in the 50 free for 15 year old boys, and making finals in the 100 fly and 200 breast. Sam McDonald had some big best times and a sixth place finish in the 200 breast stroke. The competition marks the end of the short course (25 metre) season for the Aquajets. The team will now begin preparing for long course (50 metre) competitions over the spring and summer, gearing towards championship meets in July and August in Victoria, Montreal and Scotland.

The Dr. Knox Falcons are the first ever Kelowna-based team to win the B.C. Grade 9 girls basketball championship. The host Falcons— ranked No. 2—went unbeaten in four games last weekend at the 16-team provincial tournament, securing the gold medal on Sunday afternoon with a 58-33 win over Penticton. Knox’s Kaitlyn Lafontaine scored 24 points in the final, including three key three-pointers in the second half. Tournament MVP Charlotte Lewthwaite added 20 points in the win, while Courtney Hemmerling was the player of the game. Falcons coach Dave Lafontaine says a lot of hard work and commitment by the Knox girls paid off. “It was really a crowning moment for our team,” said Lafontaine. “My dad coached for many years and talked about how these opportunities at the provincial level don’t come along very often.

Peewee Rockets finish their season in style Unbeatable in league and playoffs all season, the Kelowna Great Western Containers Rockets finished the Okanagan Mainline 2010-11 campaign in style. The Rockets won the valley tier 3 boys hockey title by taking down Revelstoke in straight games in the championship series. The clincher came Saturday at CNC, but not without a challenge. Kelowna needed two overtime periods to dispose of Revelstoke 2-1. The Rockets finished regular season and play-

offs with a perfect 21-0 record, but had another close call in their first round series when they needed four periods of OT to beat Westside. Overall, the Rockets are 39-3-1 this season. “The boys on this team have done a tremendous job of coming together, facing adversity, and conducted themselves with class all season,” said coach Dave Alcorn. The Rockets will represent OMAHA at the provincial tier 3 championship beginning March 19 in Campbell River. The league champs

are: Duncan Fiust, Marc Apchin, James Fischer, Brandon Smith, Jacob Landry, Tate Stephens, Jake Kovtach, Donovan Cridland, Quinn Stanthope, Hayden Courtney, Tommy Bodtker, Peter King, Tye Boray, Jameson Murray, Noah Fancy, Matt Alcorn, Landon Markosky, and Owen Partrick. The coaching staff is comprised of Dave Alcorn, Vince Murray, Dean Stephens and Scott Landry. The manager is Paul King and the trainer is Burton Fischer.

▼ FAT CAT CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL

Traditions of Japan attract intrepid Fat Cat to the Orient Dorothee Birker CONTRIBUTOR

Just a quick cat nap on the plane and Fat Cat has landed in a new country for the next leg of his global adventure—Where in the World is Fat Cat? Our Facebook page had great clues. Have you been following along? Check it out for a fun online journal of Fat Cat’s adventures at www.facebook.com/fatcatfestival. You also will have a chance to win two tickets anywhere WestJet flies. So let’s tour vicariously and discover where Fat Cat is. From Shanghai, after only a short flight across the China Sea, Fat Cat has landed in the island country of Japan, made up of more than 3,000 islands. There are four main islands and the capital city is located on the largest one, Honshu, which is literally translated as the Main State. The other three main islands of Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku are connected to Honshu by tunnels or bridges. Honshu is the seventh largest island in the world. With a total popula-

tion of over 103 million people, it is the second most populated island. You have probably guessed that Fat Cat is in Japan, the land of the rising sun, and he sends a hearty ‘Konnichiwa’ from Tokyo and also Kelowna’s sister city of Kasugai. Originally, Fat Cat was planning to only visit Japan’s capital to experience the amazing lights and action of the world’s most populous metropolitan area. The population is over 33 million, twice that of Shanghai’s metropolitan area, and 16 times that of the Lower Mainland. However, because this

is the 30th anniversary of the Kelowna-Kasugai sister city relationship, a quick trip with the Shinkansen, or bullet train, to Kasugai seemed like a great idea. The Shinkansen trains travel at over 300 km/ hour so the trip only takes a little under two hours— by car, the trip would take over five hours and Fat Cat would have to drive on the left-hand side of the road. So the bullet trains were definitely the best option. Getting around Tokyo, Fat Cat prefers public transportation and the bicycle. It’s fabulous be-

cause the train stations always have huge bicycle parking lots for commuters. Japan is a land of deep traditions and culture and Fat Cat is lapping it all up—the intricacies of a tea ceremony (a quiet, meditative experience), the history and traditions of sumo wrestling (wrestlers have to live by very strict rules both in and out of the ring and always throw salt in the ring before each bout) and the beauty of Hanami, or Cherry Blossom Viewing, which seems to be a national pastime. Sakura, or cherry blossoms, represent the end

Fat Cat is super excited because this year’s festival will feature taiko drumming with Kelowna’s own Yamabiko Taiko and also storytelling based on a Japanese tradition of Kamishibai or paper theatre. With Kamishibai, the storytellers ride around on

bicycles and tell dramatic tales using large colourful pictures which have been created by Jeff Chiba Stearns, a well known former Kelowna resident, artist and animator. The sun is about to set on this leg of Fat Cat’s journey, but stay tuned to where our intrepid young traveller is heading next on Facebook.

Used drink boxes get made into toilet paper, lucky for us it isn’t the other way around

The drink box that your child takes to school is a polycoat container made up of three material types: paper, an aluminum lining, and a plastic coating.

Environmental You probably already know that all the containers that come into a Return-It™ Depot are diverted from the landfill and recycled. What you might not know is how the materials are recycled and what they become afterwards. Here’s what happens to two types of containers you’re probably very familiar with: drink boxes and gable top cartons. They’re known as “polycoat” containers because they’re made of more than one material. The drink box that your child takes to school is made up of three material types: paper, an aluminum lining, and a plastic coating. The gable top carton in your refrigerator is made of plastic and paper. THE DIS-ASSEMBLY LINE: From the Return-It™ Depot, drink boxes and gable top cartons are shipped to a factory where a hydra-pulper mashes them to a

pulp to separate the paper fibre from any plastic or aluminum linings. 75% of the weight of a typical polycoat container is recoverable paper fibre. The resulting paper pulp is then used to make cardboard boxes of all shapes, sizes and colours, as well as toilet paper. Thousands of tonnes of paper pulp are recovered in this process. For every tonne of paper pulp recycled, approximately 17 trees are saved. STILL MORE TO DO: Encorp Pacific operates one of the most highly regarded beverage container recycling programs in North America. And as impressive as the recovery statistics are there’s one statistic that motivates Encorp to work even harder: 13% of BC’s pop ulation admits to having thrown away a beverage container while commuting or doing leisure activities.

GIVE MOTHER NATURE A HAND

THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE NETWORK

Just by recycling beverage containers in 2009:

Encorp Pacific (Canada) is the Industry Prod-

• You took the equivalent of 37,000 cars off

uct Stewardship Corporation mandated to

BC’s roads for a year. • You saved enough energy to light 65,000 BC homes for a year. • You contributed to the reduction of about 137,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent being released into British Columbia’s atmosphere.

KEEP ‘EM COMING In 2010 Encorp recycled about 82 million polycoat containers—drink boxes and gable top cartons. That’s 1,921 metric tonnes that didn’t end up in landfills. And it contributed to the reduction of about 7,385 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent being released into British Columbia’s atmosphere.

develop and manage a consumer friendly and cost effective system to recover end-oflife consumer products and packaging for recycling. Encorp’s Return-It™ Depot system recovers 79.5% of beverage containers sold in the province. When measured by weight that’s a recovery rate of close to 89% Product stewardship is an environmental management strategy guided by the principle that whoever designs, produces, sells, or uses a product takes responsibility for minimizing the product’s environmental impact throughout all stages of the product’s life cycle. Last year over 1 billion ready-to-drink beverage containers of all materials (plastic, glass bottles, drink boxes, cans and cartons) were returned to Return-It™ Depots and recycled into a variety of useful goods. Encorp is 100% industry operated and receives no government funding.

Reading away library fines

NEWS If your child has racked up some overdue fines on their library card, a bit of reading each day over spring break could significantly reduce the amount they owe. In celebration of its 75th anniversary this year, the Okanagan Regional Library is introduc-

ing a special program for children 12 years and under called the Read Away Fines program. For each day that the child reads between March 19 and April 2, they can get a $1 credit for any outstanding fees they have on their account. This program applies

to children up to age 12 who have an ORL children’s library card with accrued overdue fees. Beginning March 19, they can pick up a Read Away Fines Reading Record at any of the 29 ORL branches, and check off a box (or have an adult do it for them) for every day

they read until April 2. Then they can visit the circulation desk at any ORL branch between April 2 and 16 to have their credit applied; the ORL will reduce overdue fines by one dollar for each checkbox marked up to a $15 maximum waived total.

The launch of this program coincides with the ORL’s 75th anniversary Open House Celebrations at all of its branches on Saturday, March 19. Check their website at www.orl.bc.ca to find out about events at your local branch, and you can pick up a reading record, books

to read, and enjoy refreshments and entertainment all on the same day.

Yellowbird the musician. “Each lyric and melody says something to me or about me,” he said in a quote for his publicity material. “I’ll leave that up to the listener to decide which is which!” On the heels this year’s Oscar winner The King’s Speech, this tour he’s being a little more specific about what he tells people of his life.

Born with a severe stuttering problem, like King George VI, Yellowbird too saw a speech therapist who suggested he sing his sentences rather than speak them, to help him learn to get his words out. Clearly, the technique worked. Shane Yellowbird plays the OK Corral on Friday, March 18.

very three minutes, cancer picks a fight with another Canadian and the people who love them. However, thanks to advances in research, cancer treatments have improved dramatically and survival rates are steadily increasing. Today, 62 per cent of people will survive a diagnosis of cancer. Canada—and especially British Columbia— provides excellent cancer care and some of the top research in the world. Volunteers play a key role in ensuring this high quality care is available. “Each year, thousands of volunteers deliver programs, and raise money and awareness,” said Merran Davies, volunteer engagement coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society. “At this time of year, volunteers are needed for our Daffodil Campaign—which is a valued fundraiser as well as a symbol of hope for cancer patients.” For the past 70 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has led the fight against cancer. The CCS stands up for healthy public policy, funds research for all cancers and provides compassionate support. The Canadian Cancer Society has more impact against more cancers in more communities than any other cancer charity in Canada, yet there is so much more we need to do.

To some, the daffodil is just a flower. To us, it is a symbol of strength and courage—a symbol of life. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight back and we will beat cancer. Joining the fight is easy. This April, you can support all Canadians with cancer by helping the symbol of hope bloom in your community. To volunteer for the annual Daffodil Campaign, please call Merran Davies toll free at 1-800-403-8222 or 250762-6381, or go online to register at www.fightwithus.ca.

Cartoons to terror

Y

ears ago, a newspaper cartoonist named Berkeley Breathed entertained me with Bloom County, featuring characters like Opus the Penguin, Bill the Cat and Milquetoast the Cockroach. Since then, he has gone on to write five children’s books, including one called Mars Needs Moms. This caught the attention of Disney and producer Robert Zemeckis (The Polar Express) and they have now adapted it into a motion-captured 3D animated film. It’s the adventure of a lifetime for nine-yearold Milo who must rescue his mom from Martians who have kidnapped ther and other earth mothers to help them raise their young. He stows away on a spaceship and with the help of an earth man, a Martian girl and a bionic cat, he takes on the aliens who stole his mother. Mars Needs Moms features the voices of Seth Green, Joan Cusack, Dan Fogler, James Earl Jones, Breckin Meyer and Billy Dee Williams and is rated general with a warning of violence. In Battle: Los Angeles, aliens are looking for much more than our mothers. It is inspired by the so-called The Battle of Los Angeles, a falsely suspected air raid of Los Angeles that took place during the Second World War. In the film, the unidentified aircraft were actually alien UFOs scouting the earth in preparation for an eventual attack, but their existence was covered up by the government. In 2011, the sightings become a terrifying reality as Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind. Aaron Eckhart stars as a Marine Staff Sergeant who must lead his new platoon into a fight with an enemy unlike anything they have encountered before. Also starring Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan, it is rated 14A with a warning of frequent violence. Leonardo DiCaprio serves as producer on a reimagining of a classic tale that traditionally was told to children. The filmmakers have very loosely based this tale on both Charles Perrault’s Little Red Riding Hood and the Brothers Grimm’s

City acquires land to set aside for Casorso Rd. park The City of Kelowna has acquired land on Casorso Road that will eventually be used as a park and a road extension. The property is located immediately east of Casorso Elementary School and is currently occupied by a single-family residence. The residence on the property will be leased back to the owner pending development of the site.

“We have no design or development plans for the property yet, but we wanted to establish a neighbourhood park in this area due to the recent and proposed multi-family developments,” said City of Kelowna park and public spaces manager Terry Barton. “The time frame for the design has yet to be determined, but the city

has taken the first step in securing the land.” Neighbourhood parks typically have playgrounds, community gardens, a common grass play field, trails, benches and landscaping. The land acquisition will also allow a planned extension of Mission Springs Drive across Casorso Road to Barnes Avenue to the north.

▼ REGION

Challenge issued to show a little respect Community members from around the Thompson-Okanagan region are encouraged to get as many people from their area to log on as possible by March 21—the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The total responses from each community will be tallied, and the community having the most challengers sign up by the end of that day will be recognized. Kelowna Community Resources is one of the organizations that has been involved in developing the

Respect Network—a consortium of organizations throughout the Thompson-Okanagan region that make up part of an EmbraceBC provincial initiative supporting communities organizing against racism and hate. Elizabeth MacLeod, with KCR, supports the Respect Network’s vision of a region where she says all community members and visitors are “welcomed, valued and respected.” When it comes to issues of racism and hate, MacLeod believes that it “all comes down to re-

specting our differences and looking at the positive ways that diversity enriches our communities.” Community organizations which share the Respect Network’s beliefs are encouraged to join the network. Community residents are encouraged to use it as a starting place for information about racism and hatred and to find out what they can do in their communities. The Respect Challenge competition will run until March 21, but the challenge will continue on the site past that date.

SNORING? SLEEPAPNEA?

Most older men and many women snore and have sleep apnea (gasping for air) : To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH � Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS � For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS �It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. I was skeptical about Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Eze #23. After using it for 3 weeks my wife says there is no more snoring or gasping for breath or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with and can get up with no restrictions. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON People’s phone numbers on our website.

▼ GENEVA CAR SHOW

New vehicle concepts hope to make big splash Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

There are car shows and then there is Geneva. With world premieres of 26 concepts and 18 production vehicles, the Geneva Motor Show not only is in a class by itself but it is the harbinger of things to come for the whole year. And this year’s story from Geneva was about the power and the glory. Green was big, but nothing compared the exotic, and sometimes over the top, vehicles seemingly on every stand with eye candy the like of which you won’t see anywhere else. Supercars dominated, like the 660 hp FF that is Ferrari’s first ever all-wheeldrive, four-passenger car. At the other end of the hall was Lamborghini with the 700 hp V12 Aventador LP 700-4, the world’s first series production car with an all-carbon fibre monocoque passenger cell and push rod suspension straight from Formula One. Follow this up with a stunning Aston Martine Virage in a golden orange, Pagani’s 230 mph Huayra, the 820 hp GTA Spano and a matte red lightweight two-seater from Alfa Romeo called the 4C GTA that drew, arguably the largest crowds during press days. And for pure whimsy it’s tough to outdo the return of the three-wheeler Morgan or the Rinspeed Bamboo, more

LUSCIOUS is the only

way to describe the Maserati GranCabrio Sport (above). With a 4.7litre V8, it can whisk four passengers along at 285 km/h. For pure fun it’s hard to beat the Rinspeed Bamboo (right). It is seen as a modern day beach car for the young and young at heart. CONTRIBUTED

The five-door RS3 is aimed squarely at the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. With a five-cylinder direct gasoline injection engine production 340 hp, it will feature a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive. Also shown was the Audi A3 concept featuring a low, flowing roof dome and a coupe-like, low C pillar. It is powered by a five-cylinder turbocharged engine with 408 hp distributing its power to all four wheels through a seven-speed S-tronic transmission and permanent all-wheel drive.

Ford’s offerings ranged from zero emission electric vehicles like the Focus Electric to the new Ranger Wildtrak and the Vertrek SUV concept plus Ford’s latest rally car, the Fiesta RS WRC. Ford also staged the European debut of the CMAX Energi, a pre-production version of the plug-in hybrid first shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit that will launch in Europe in 2013. The all-new Ford Ranger Wildtrak made its global debut at the show. It’s a sporty compact pickup that delivers impressive power and safety, excellent fuel efficiency and significant capability. Honda’s EV Concept electric vehicle and a platform for mid size plug-in hybrid vehicles were displayed alongside the revised Accord range. The Honda EV Concept hints strongly at the direction and styling for Honda’s upcoming production battery electric vehicle, the Fit EV, which will be introduced to the U.S. and Japan in 2012.

Splash from B2 One of the more interesting concepts was the Infiniti Etherea seen as a design study for a future entry level aimed at young buyers. Infiniti says such a future car would not be a scaled down version of an existing vehicle, but different from anything else in the burgeoning compact premium segment.

KIA

The next generation Rio was unveiled alongside the all-new European Picanto subcompact. The Rio has a new interpretation of Kiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature grille, integrated with the headlamps to give a new twist on the Kia family look. In profile, the body-toglass ratio and its strong wedge form give the new Rio a dynamic stance. Offered initially as a fivedoor and three-door, the five-door is expected in Canadian show rooms by the fall with the threedoor following early in 2012.

Porsche played it very low key at Geneva showing a hybrid version of the Panamera sedan as well as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blackâ&#x20AC;? versions of the 911 and Boxster.

The smart forspeed electric two-seater has no roof or side windows and features a low wind deflector instead of a windscreen. The smart four-speed accelerates from 0-37 mph in just 5.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 75 mph. A 30 kW magnetoelectric motor is installed at the rear of the smart forspeed.

CONTRIBUTOR

Think of it as the G Sedan Lite. That’s one way to describe Infiniti’s newest addition to the G Sedan lineup, the 2011 G25, featuring a 2.5-litre V6 engine. Previously, only a 3.7-litre V6 was offered in the G series. According to Infiniti, the 2.5-litre DOHC 24valve V6 produces 218 hp and 187 lb/ft of torque and uses nine to 11 per cent less fuel than the 3.7-litre model. In these days of rising fuel prices, any savings at the pumps is important and Infiniti is betting that the take-rate on the G25 will be brisk. This will be the entry model for the Infiniti brand’s best-selling line

and for those with an eye on their pocketbooks, the price is certainly right. Starting at $36,390, the G25 Sedan is priced more than $7,000 under the starting price of the entry-level G37 model, the G37x AWD. There is a ‘but’ here, though, as that G25 base model is rear-wheel drive, while the G37x features all-wheel drive. Add AWD to the G25 and the price differential is in the $3,000 range compared with the G37x AWD. In essence, the G25 is a cheaper, less powerful version of the G37 yet it has the same sporty styling, wide range of technology and general refinement. Until now, Infiniti was one of the few luxury brands offering only one engine choice in its lineup.

Just last year, the G Sedan was refreshed with revised exterior styling, an enhanced interior and upgraded technology. Outside, the headlights and grille were restyled and the standard fog lights were moved from the headlight cluster to lower fascia. Three trim levels are available in the G25, G25 Sedan, G25x Sedan AWD and G25x Sedan AWD Sport. Prices start at $36,390 and climb to $40,450 for the G25x AWD and $45,540 for the G25x Sedan AWD Sport, which was the model I tested. Fuel economy ratings are 10.6L/100 km (27 mpg) city for the G25x AWD Sedan Sport and See Infiniti B5

zone automatic temperature control, 10-speaker premium Bose stereo system, and tilt power glass sliding moonroof. In competition with cars like the 3-Series BMW, Audi A4 and Lexus IS250, the G25x AWD Sport offers the same great Infiniti features as its G37 sibling but with better fuel economy and a lower price. So if power is not your prime consideration in a sport sedan, what’s not to like about the new G25?

2010

7.3L/100 km (39 mpg) highway. With the lower price of the G25, it means the Infiniti family will now be available to a new batch of customers who want to move up into the entry luxury segment. While the price is lower, Infiniti doesn’t scrimp in the standard features. Standard on the G25 is a slick shifting sevenspeed automatic transmission, available on all three trim levels. This is the same transmission as in the G37. Similarly, it shares the same chassis and exterior and interior design as the G37. Also standard are leather seats, eight-way power driver’s seat, aluminum interior trim, sixspeaker premium audio system, automatic temperature control and seven-inch colour monitor for the vehicle information system. Wheels are 17-inch alloys and the G25 features High Intensity Discharge (HID) xenon headlights, anti-lock brakes and vehicle dynamic control (stability control) with traction control. The G25x AWD Sedan Sport gets 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels clad with P225/50R 18 tires. Since the G25 is essentially the same as the r G37 except for under the hood, one would expect the ride and handling to be similar. The ride is smooth twithout being floaty, thanks to independent suspension all round. Front and rear stabilizer bars help keep the G25 firmly planted to the pavement on tight corners and the power-assisted, speedsensitive rack-and-pinion steering performs as one would expect in a sport sedan with just enough feedback to provide confidence for the driver. The 2.5-litre engine, which runs on premium unleaded fuel, is smooth and surprisingly quiet even when you head up the rev chart. At speed, engine and wind noise is barely discernable inside the cabin. The seven-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and in the Sport model has a Snow mode function. Speaking of the cabin, the interior is very nicely done. With the Sport model, add-ons include 14way power Sport driver’s seat (instead of the standard eight-way power), sport leather steering wheel, power tilt and telescoping steering column, aluminum pedals, magnesium paddle shifters, dual

Motor Show, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is the first supercar in the world to board an all carbon fibre passenger cell. Its light weight and 700 hp V12 engine sees it accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. JIM ROBINSON/CONTRIBUTOR

also to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gases. Lamborghini and Audi have partnered with Boeing and Intel. Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner is the world’s first carbon fibre aircraft and much of what Boeing has learned is incorporated in the Aventador. All of this was explained to the world’s automotive press a week before the Geneva show during a tour of the firm’s in-house carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) centre in Sant’ Agata Bolognese near Bologna. Lamborghini officials described it as “our most secret place” and previously off limits to the media. The heart of the new flagship is a full monocoque passenger cabin or “tub.” For the first time, the tub and roof is one single physical component weighing 147.5 kilograms (324.5 lb). The tub of the Aventador boasts a leading edge static torsional stiffness of 35,000 Newton meters per degree. Yet the whole body-inwhite weighs only 229.5 kilograms (504.9 lbs), a best in class for a super sports car with a power output of more than 700 hp The use of carbon fibre is not new at Lamborghini—they were working with it some 30 years ago. The decision to go full carbon fibre was taken after the company noted that, while power was going up, so was the weight of its cars. From the 1980s, their vehicles increased by about 500 kg (1,100 lb) due primarily to added/ mandated equipment like ABS, catalytic converters, crash standards and emissions requirements. While most supercars can do 300 km/h these

days, Lamborghini realized the very heft of this spiraling weight gain was taking a toll on precision/ high-speed handling, performance and the pleasure people expect from a car in this class. In contrast to conventional CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced plastic) materials based on long, interwoven fibers, Lamborghini’s revolutionary material is made from half-inch short fibres. More than 500,000 braided fibers per square inch create a material that has only one third of the density of titanium, yet is considerably stronger. Many think carbon fibre can’t absorb energy in a crash, but this is not the case. While it is twice as effective as high strength steel, it can suffer damage. But it can also be repaired. Lamborghini showed journalists repairs in progress as a result of testing. A carbon fibre “patch” can be cut to fit the damaged area that retains the stiffness and integrity of the original part. When it comes to the passenger cell, journalists were shown the process that has been greatly speeded up and refined. For instance, the first tubs took 1.5 hours for the carbon fibre forms and the resins to cure in the huge auto claves that look like giant pressure cookers. Today, they have it down to five minutes. Nevertheless, it does take time. Instead of weeks, it takes about 120 hours from the time the bolts of carbon fibre are cut to the finished tub. But it does not stop there. For the chassis members, aluminum sometimes encased in carbon fibre is used to hold the engine and front and rear suspension members. The result is the next

the company’s number two selling nameplate in Canada on the strength of its style or even its zoomzoominess. Not that these are entirely lacking. It’s because this five-door, multi-activity vehicle—which could be best described as a threequarter-size minivan—is just so darned practical. And with so little like it, the Mazda5 is nearly in a segment of its own. Since arriving in Canada, Mazda has sold just over 50,000 of these vehicles to-date, but that being said, 2010 saw a 13.8 percent drop in sales. In short, was time for an update. Mazda in its wisdom, chose not to entirely remake the vehicle (why fix what ain’t broke?), and re-

sisted the urge to make it bigger. Instead they revised key areas like performance and styling, along with a few tweaks to its functionality and driving dynamics. The company may label the 2012 Mazda5 ‘all-new,’ but in my mind, they have simply refined a very sensible design. First, the engine has been upgraded from a 2.3-litre (153 hp/148 lbft) to the 2.5-litre four currently used in Mazda3 and Mazda6, with a sixspeed manual as standard and five-speed automatic available. The new powerplant delivers up to 157 hp at a lower rpm than before, along with substantially more torque (163 lb/ ft). And there’s a tall sixth gear for quieter cruising at

highway speeds. It’s a little punchier than the previous model, and is reasonably peppy with the manual shift. Which isn’t surprising, as the Mazda5 is only 197 kg heavier than the nimble 2.5-litre Mazda3 sedan. What’s most noticeable is the new look. The size, shape and proportions haven’t changed, but the conservative lines and clean, slab sides of the previous model have been replaced by the company’s Nagare ‘flow’ design language—the first time it has been used in a production vehicle. The idea behind this new look is to incorporate the forces of wind and water, with the design team describing its effect See Mazda B9

Mazda from B8 r on the Mazda5 as ‘a single bead of water with ripples intentionally left on the surface, such that the body’s lines express the flow of motion.’ Sounds kind of newagey, and I’ve heard a mixed response to the new styling. It is, however, distinctive and still prettier than fthe pumpkin-shaped Kia Rondo, it’s direct competition. The Chevrolet Orlando is a slightly truckiter, more aggressive take on this kind of vehicle and may give the Mazda5 a run for the money when it arrives later this year. The new 5’s flowing curves seem to start at the tlove-it-or-hate-it Mazda family front grille, passing over the headlamps, hood and fenders, continuing down the sides to the rear lamps and tailgate in a continuous stream. The tail lights now sit lower, and the rear window panels are blacked out to cover the D-pillar, giving the look of glass wrapping around the body. The sliding door rails have also been blended with the character lines, cleaning up the look. First impressions aside, the Mazda5 is best judged by what you’ll find under the skin—which is

a very flexible, and surprisingly roomy, interior that can be configured for just about any combination of two-six passengers, plus cargo. The front doors open to two comfortable captain’s chairs, upholstered in an attractive, grippy fabric. Access to the second row is through two sliding doors that are lighter and require less effort than the before. They open wide, making it easy to load kids and bulky child seats with little clearance between vehicles. Here, you’ll also find comfortable captain’s chairs with loads of kneeroom and a generous space between them. This can serve as a pass-through to the rear, or a buffer between kids who otherwise enjoy tormenting one another. The middle-row chairs also slide fore and aft to allow for more knee room in back. And to access the rear, a one-touch lever automatically tips the seatback forward and slides the cushion to its front-most position. With the mid-row seats moved up a little, there’s just enough room in the third-row for two shorter adults. My kids, however, loved sitting there. Got stuff to carry?

Here’s where the Mazda5 really shines. The back seats drop individually in a single motion to provide a flat cargo floor. Lift a rear panel, and there’s an underfloor storage tray, with the compact spare below. Also in back are a cargo light and 12volt powerpoint. The second-row seats can also be dropped without removing the headrests—just pull a strap and they flop forward. Another strap brings the seatpan forward, revealing more hidden storage. From here, you can fold the seatbacks forward to create a level cargo floor from front to back. Mazda rates the carrying capacity as follows: 112 litres behind the third row, 426 litres behind the second row and a maximum 857 litres behind the front seats (with both rows folded). Those figures didn’t seem to do justice to the cavernous cargo area, so I pulled out my tape measure to size things up. Being somewhat conservative and taking into account curvature and intrusions, I measured roughly 66 inches (1,676 mm) of cargo length behind the first row, a minimum of 41 inches (1041 mm) between the wheel wells and between 32 inches (813 mm) and 35

You do the math, keeping in mind that a cubic metre is equal to 1,000 litres. I found enough space—in theory—to slide in my full-sized refrigerator, with the hatch slightly ajar. Not bad for a compact vehicle of any kind. On the other hand, with six people seated, there isn’t much room for their stuff. You can, how-

ever, still slide in a few bags of groceries behind the third row. The 2012 Mazda5 is available in two trim levels: the GS, which starts at $21,795 and the GT at $24,395. Both are powered by the same engine and start with a six-speed manual. The five-speed automatic adds $1,200. For a base vehicle, the GS is surprisingly well equipped. You get 16-inch

alloy wheels, power mirrors, windows and locks, four-speaker AM/FM/ CD/MP3 audio system with aux input and steering wheel controls, air conditioning with filtration, outside temperature display, and more. Unexpected at this price point are standard rain-sensing wipers, automatic dusk-sensing headlights, automatic climate control and rear HVAC

controls for the second row. All Mazda5’s get a full suite of safety and handling features that include four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution, dynamic stability control, traction control, and a full complement of airbags: front, See Mazda B12

MOTORING

Chrysler 300 a Brampton-made beauty Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

It’s no secret Chrysler suffered the most of the domestics during the 2009 fiscal meltdown. And while Chrysler admits they are not quite where they want to be right now, there are encouraging signs. At the end of last year, it had $8.3 billion US in cash and a total liquidity of $10 billion. In Canada, sales were up last year 51 per cent. At the end of 2009, the Canadian CUV segmentleading Dodge Journey

was up 55 per cent. When it comes to the 2011 300, Chrysler Canada has made a huge decision to be parsimonious on pricing. By adding no charge content, they want to make the Brampton-built 2011 300 attractive to those aspiring to full-size but at a mid-size price. With aggressive pricing, Chrysler Canada president, Reid Bigland, said the 300 in its four main variants are now attainable by an estimated 608,000 Canadian consumers. At the press launch of

the 300 and 300C in San Diego, Chrysler has a price walk comparison to its main competitors. I dislike these because the comparisons are often skewed to place the other guy in the worst light. But the most glaring difference was the 300 V6 Limited versus the similarly equipped V6 Cadillac CTS at some $10,000 less. The Chrysler 300 debuted in 2004 and it came out of nowhere with a look that was as unique as it was controversial. With a close-cropped hood, huge grille and slab-

MOS. FOR UP TO

clock back to 2009 with Chrysler teetering on the edge between oblivion and recovery. You may ask why the 2011 Chrysler 300 looks so much like the 2010? The answer to this is looks can be deceiving. Love it or hate it, the 300 stands out in any crowd and Chrysler is mindful of that. And while there is a deliberate resemblance, all of the body panels are changed. The interior is perhaps the best part with its big, blue main gauges plus the sense of a lot more room at the front than before. It’s

I dare say there were, and continue to be, more customization packages for the 300 than any other car on the market. Driving through the streets of San Diego for the launch of the 2011 300, there were scores of the last generation model rolling around the streets with gargantuan wheels, lurid paint schemes and super bling chrome grilles and side vents.

Neither will most SUVs, unless you move up to the school-bus-size Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition and the like. Or you can opt for a mini-

Same goes if you need to pick up the odd appliance, table or loveseat, but don’t want a gas-guzzling behemoth as your daily driver. Indeed, the Mazda5 seems to have the right balance of comfort, space and flexibility.The 2012 model is on sale now at dealerships.

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Brock Stewart Maiden on March 3. 2011 at age 53. Brock was a devoted father to Devon (wife Pam), Grandfather to Jayden, a beloved son to Fred and Muriel Maiden (predeceased 1965) and step-son to Thelma Maiden. Brock will be sadly missed by his brothers Trevor (Chris) and Doug (Donna) and his sisters Janet (Duane), Linda (James), Karen (Mike) and Janice, and by his much adored dog Molley. An avid outdoorsman and photographer, Brock will always be remembered for his photographic talent and his amazing ability to capture nature through a camera lens. As a professional carpenter, he excelled at combining function and beauty to the homes he built in Kelowna over the past 25 years. But, it isn’t his professional or athletic skills that made Brock stand out. It was the way he loved each and every friend and family member, from the oldest to the newest and with a family of nine, there was always a new member joining the crew. He loved each and every niece and nephew in his own unique way - they are: Lee, Giselle, Michelle, Jaime, Sean (Annie), Sara (Adam), Danielle, Alana, Nathan (Stephanie), Natalie (Shane), Marcus (Linda), Jaylene (Kyle) and Cameron. When Brock explored the mountains and rivers of British Columbia, he had a desire to always keep going; to see what was around the next corner; to reach the highest peak way after the rest of us were ready to call it quits. He was always up in front, ahead of everyone else and again, he is leading the way - the first to find whatever lays ahead for us all. There will be a reception at Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road in Kelowna, on Saturday, March 12th at 4:00 P.M. to celebrate Brock’s life. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Central Okanagan Hospice House, 2235 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6 or to the scholarship program at Foundation Todos Juntos (www.todos-juntos.org). Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.
