Quick action averts grass fire damage to plant Cedar

parkland fight still far from over

Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Lane Ketler was sitting at his desk Monday afternoon when he glanced out the window and spotted 40-foot flames and smoke not far from his business. “It was kind of a scary thing,� said Ketler, owner of Action Metals. “I looked out and there was a 40-foot flame across the creek.� The fire, fanned by high winds, quickly jumped Mill Creek and headed right toward the Action Metals fuel shed, storage for shop equipment, a 10,000 litre diesel tank and approximately 500 litres of gasoline. Soon after spotting the smoke and flames, Ketler shut down the yard and half of the 22 staff members began hosing down the area around the concrete and metal fuel shed, while the other half began moving items and pulling dry debris from the area. They also focused on dousing the trees on an adjoining property while worrying about the flames catching the trees that bordered their business’ south border. Fire crews soon joined Action Metals staff in fighting the flames, having been called around 2:20 p.m. Monday about a refuse fire that had spread into the grass at the end of Fenwick Road, behind Scandia. Winds, reported by Environment Canada to be gusting at up to

KELOWNA firefighters were scrambling men and equipment into the Action Metals workyard on Monday afternoon after a grass fire jumped across Mill Creek and was burning in the direction of the Highway 97 North scrap metal recycling business. 57 km/hour that afternoon, caused the flames to quickly move north alongside the rail line to the industrial area where Action Metals is located. “I think in the end, it

was just under a kilometre long,� said assistant fire chief Jason Brolund. The challenge with the wind gusts prompted fire officials to call in the B.C. Forest Service ear-

ly and a helicopter made seven bucket drops on the flames, enabling ground crews to gain control of the fire. “Those types of resources, especially this time of year, are hard to

get,� said Brolund. He also was grateful for the efforts of Action Metals to protect their property, calling them “really well prepared� for dealing with such an in-

cident. Firefighting crews were back in the area Tuesday to try and determine a point of origin for the fire in an effort to find its cause. cwierda@kelownacapnews.com

The public process that allowed Kelowna residents to tell city politicians their take on a controversial waterfront proposal closed last week, but opposition groups are continuing with efforts to sway an April 18 vote in their favour. People for the Park— a citizen group focused on turning seven city-owned properties on Cedar Avenue into parkland—announced Monday they were throwing a party for the park this Saturday afternoon to show community support for parkland. The news that got more fanfare, however, was that a benefactor is waiting in the wings to fund a $2-million-plus site transition to parkland, should the city see fit to ditch their current proposal in favour of green space. However, nobody knows who the mystery man or woman is just yet. “We can’t disclose the name, at the donor’s request,� said Michael Neill, a Pandosy area resident. See Fight A4

Condo complex fire cause a mystery

Post-fire building reclamation an arduous process

Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Residents burned out of one of the Laurentian Heights apartment buildings on Sunday morning should soon be able to get back into the building to retrieve their salvageable belongings. The process to begin allowing residents to go back into the building will get underway Wednesday, under the direction of the owner and the restoration company, said Kelowna assistant fire chief Jason Brolund. However, it may be some time before anyone can call the building home again. While fire officials say work is still being done to assess the condition of the building and its structural integrity, “it’s going to be an extensive amount of time” before restoration and repair work is complete, said assistant fire chief Lou Wilde. Residents at a meeting Monday night were told to expect the work to take 12 to 16 months. So now the approximately 100 residents, who were provided three nights of accommodation through Emergency Social Services, must find an alternate roof to put over their heads. To help, the Red Cross has set up at the site on Kelglen Crescent, to assist residents affected by Sunday’s fire. The blaze was reported to fire officials shortly after 4 a.m. Arriving fire crews found a “well-involved fire” on the deck of a third floor unit in the southeast corner of the 49unit building. The fire “quickly

The fire has displaced about 100 residents from the building. spread into the attic area and throughout the upper part of the building, causing extensive damage to the roof and top floors in the south end of the building,” said Wilde. A total of 21 firefighters were initially called to the blaze, and another 45 career and paid oncall staff were called in to provide coverage for other fire calls in the city. As firefighters worked to combat the fire, RCMP officers went door to door in the unaffected areas of the building, evacuating residents. By the time the fire was out, approximately six units had suffered fire damage, said Wilde. Every other unit was touched by the water used to put out the flames, but at the far end of the building, water damage is minimal. The carpets are wet, said Wilde, but the pos-

MOST RENTERS DON’T HAVE INSURANCE ON THEIR STUFF, WHICH IS SAD. Lou Wilde, Kelowna assistant fire chief

sessions of those residents should be fine. Tony Gordon and Curtis Woodcock, living in the unit next to the one where the fire started, were both away Saturday night and didn’t realize their unit was gutted by fire until Sunday morning. Gordon said he learned about it while at work, while Woodcock was confronted by the damage when driving down Harvey. “I saw someone standing on the other side of Harvey with a camera tak-

ing pictures, and that usually means something is going on, so I looked over and saw my building,” Woodcock said. Gordon and Woodcock were happy to see all but one of their guitars and bass instruments survived the firefighting efforts. “We just moved in last October and were planning to move out again at the end of the month,” Woodcock said. They did not have contents insurance for their belongings, something Woodcock admits now is a lesson they’ve learned the hard way. “We didn’t see the point of getting insurance since we were planning to move out…but I guess that’s the point,” he said, looking up at the fire damaged complex. Wilde said only about 20 per cent of the residents had insurance, which he said is typical.

“Most renters don’t have insurance on their stuff, which is sad,” he said. Wilde also said fire officials have ”pretty much finished” their work at the site, but can’t say definitively how the fire started. When investigating a blaze that causes so much damage, it can be hard to find what sparked the fire. “If there’s no physical evidence, a lot of times we can only…assume,” said Wilde. However, Wilde said he could say the cause of the fire appears to be accidental and is not electrical in nature. The building’s insurance company is bringing in its own private investigator this week as they move forward with the claim to repair the building, he added. —with files from Barry Gerding

As residents of a Rutland apartment building that burned last summer can attest, the restoration and rebuilding process is a long one. Last July, a fire broke out at Barber Terrace, located at the corner of Barber Road and Highway 33, resulting in more than 100 people living in the 35 units being forced from their homes. The fire was believed to have started on the fourth floor and caused extensive damage to a number of units on one side of the building’s firewall. However, the suites that weren’t affected by flames were hit by smoke or water, leaving all the suites in need of repair. Now, nine months later, restoration work has finally been completed and repairs to the building just got underway two weeks ago, said William Kovacic from Okanagan Strata Management, which manages the building. “It’s quite a grueling…process,” said Kovacic of the efforts to get residents back into the building. “There’s a lot of unanswerable questions that need to go through the right process.” For example, vinyl siding needs to be replaced on the building, an expenditure that can run a couple of hundred thousand dollars. While the siding is intact on one half of the structure, “you can’t get the same product” to clad the half that needs to be done. As well, common practices for installation have changed. “How do you deal with that?” he asked. He also said restoration work is a time onerous process, with the Gyp-Crete, a concrete layer on top of every floor used as a fire and sound break, having to be pulled up in the entire building because it absorbed the water from the fire fighting efforts and soaked the wood below. That’s in addition to replacing windows and pulling out all the other items, like flooring, that were damaged by fire and water. As well, electrical panels in parts of the building were rusting because of their exposure to water, said Kovacic. Restoration work was completed the first week of February, and then the contracting work was tendered, beginning two weeks ago, Kovacic said. And while he acknowledges that it “seems like forever” to move forward with the work, “you’ll start to see some differences quick.” He estimates repair work to the building will be completed Nov. 1. cwierda@kelownacapnews.com

Police looking for driver who hit vehicle parked on Houghton Road Police are asking for help finding a vehicle that was driven into a parked vehicle in Rutland and then drove off. During the early morning hours of

Tuesday, RCMP say a Dodge pickup parked on Houghton Road near Filuk Road was hit, causing extensive damage to the driver’s side and leaving a

lot of debris on the road. Police believe that the vehicle that hit the pickup was either a pickup or van, as it would have to be large

enough to cause extensive damage to a full-sized Dodge pickup. They believe the vehicle they are looking for has extensive damage

on the passenger side, and is possibly blue. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Lise Marion at 250-980-5353.

Mystery potential benefactor alters waterfront parkland debate Fight from A1 His efforts have been

instrumental in keeping public attention focused on the issue that’s been

boiled down to a battle to retain parkland. “I know who it is, and

Books in downtown Kelowna. “The last thing I want to do is mislead the city or the public.” City officials, to date, haven’t been made privy to the same information as Neill, although they say they’d welcome any input. “The city has had no contact with Michael Neill nor any alleged donor regarding parkland or park development,” said Doug Gilchrist, the city’s director of real estate and building services in an email. “If there is such a person(s) they should be encouraged to contact the city manager.” Until that time, Neill and his cohorts will continue in their efforts to show politicians that 200plus area residents who showed up for a marathon public hearing last Tuesday reflected the will of the city at large when they spoke to the value of parkland. That meeting saw 43 people weigh in on the issue at the meeting, which lasted until 1 a.m.

Four were in favour of selling off just half the land to a developer to fund a boardwalk, small park and shoreline area, while 39 thought the 2.5- to four-storey development would be a detriment to the neighbourhood and city at large.

‘‘

THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS MISLEAD THE CITY OR THE PUBLIC. Michael Neill

At the end of that meeting, commentary was supposed to be over, but Neill said just as councillors will have more time to think it over, the community should have more time to make their views clear. “They are human beings and unless they left town for vacations it’s unavoidable that they’ll hear

about this,” he said. “And I was hoping that the public hearing was when the issue would be decided upon, because we had a huge showing and it seemed unanimous that everyone thought (the development) was the wrong decision,” he said. “But city council was too tired to make a decision, so they closed the public hearing and gave themselves two weeks to think about it, when they’re actually supposed to think about this in front of us.” Neill stressed that the parkland proponents are not opposed to development, but the city needs more than just a walkway. Meanwhile, People for the Park have announced plans to host the Party for the Park, on Saturday, April 16. The fun begins at 2 p.m. at the beach access at the foot of Cedar Avenue, one block from the corner of Pandosy Street and KLO Road. kmichaels @kelownacapnews.com

COLOURFUL PARADE…

SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS

The Okanagan Sikh community staged its inaugural Vaisakhi parade in Rutland last Saturday, an event that recognizes one of the most significant holidays in the Sikh religious calendar. It marks both when the Sikhs garnered a distinct identity as a people, and also the harvest of the winter crops in the Punjab region of India and the start of a new year.

Transit strike looming Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna transit workers will figure out by the end of April whether they’ll be parking local buses as a means of wrangling for what they call a fair contract. “We have applied for mediation with First Bus, the company that operates the contract for B.C. Transit, and that will happen April 27 or 28,” said Les Milton, president of the Amalgamated Transit union, after a 95 per cent membership vote rejecting the latest contract offer. “Then, after that, we’ll go to our membership and discuss next steps… but this group of employees has done everything we can do to stave off a strike.” Milton said the mediation is a last-ditch effort to make contract talks work. The crux of the matter, he explained, is that the company that operates the B.C. Transit contract is treating drivers as though they’re government employees, while receiving none of the benefits extended to public sector employees. “When you talk about the government employees versus contracted out employees, we’re it,” he explained. “That means our contract is meagre compared to the BC Transit—we have lower wages, not as good benefits, no pension plan—so to turn around and say they’re bound by government restraint is laughable.” All of those things, he said, may be acceptable if there was any form of job security, but that’s off the table as well. So when the contract offering two years with no pay increases, and a third year waiting on government approval, was presented it fell below the acceptable standard. “We’re pretty tight on increases in job security and wages,” he said. In the meantime, Milton would like to see city politicians and the public show their support. “It’s funny, the District of Lake Country has been nothing but supportive, and more progressive than the thriving city of Kelowna,” he said. “They’ve sent letters to BC Transit saying drivers should be kept.”

Angie Lohr is an extreme volunteer with an extremely difficult mission. On average, the homebased publishing and direct mail consultant spends the equivalent of two work days worth of time each week organizing a small army of volunteers to help the women addicted to drugs and working as prostitutes on Kelowna’s streets. The H.O.P.E. Outreach volunteers help women find the basic necessities they need to keep going in life—toothbrushes, soap, a friendly ear to listen on a particularly rough night, or a place to report the clients who have made that night so rough. “My husband keeps looking at me and saying, ‘Are you OK with these two full-time jobs?” says Lohr. More often than not the answer is yes, just as it is for the millions of volunteers who give of their time and energy across the country. April 10 to 16 is National Volunteer Week, a chance to recognize the important role volunteers play in our day-to-day life. Canada has the second-largest volunteer

Crucial to any social service safety net Heart from A8 hearts, from their passion, their time and skills to provide services that otherwise wouldn’t exist,” she said, pointing out it’s a huge cost savings we probably would never be able to cover as a community. Just over half of the non-profit and charitable organizations in this country operate entirely off volunteers, without paid staff. It’s the ideas, like H.O.P.E. Outreach, that start as a vision and operate off the sides of peoples’ desks in the hours left to spare at the end of the day. H.O.P.E. Outreach started when two former street workers went to a newspaper and said they fwanted to help women still walking this difficult path in life. Lohr saw the article, decided to help, and to-

day is now spearheading the organization, which is just now getting its charitable status, two years into its existence. Along the way, she’s seen a lot of help. Kelowna Women’s Resource Centre took responsibility for helping with financial organization. Evangel Church and Trinity Baptist Church provided some money. Lohr worked with UBCO’s social work program to get a student intern and set up a liaison with Kelowna RCMP. But far and away the most important piece of this puzzle is the 40 dedicated volunteers who meet, two at a time, at the Safeway parking lot each evening and make the hour-long trip around the downtown core to ensure everyone who needs help has it. “It’s just an amazing group of women,” said

Platinum Bone Builder Strontium + Naturopathic Doctors are increasingly recommending a mineral supplement called strontium for osteopenic and osteoporotic patients. Most of these people either cannot tolerate prescription drugs used to prevent hip and spine fractures or are too frightened of side effects like stomach upset and jaw bone disintegration caused by the commonly prescribed drugs collectively known as the bisphosphonates (e.g.Fosamax, Actonel, etc.). Doctors routinely see 5 10% improvements in bone density after a year using Strontium, without any of the usual drugs prescribed for osteoporosis and without the side effects.

Constant polling a voting detriment

I

t was the lead paragraph on the lead story of Tuesday’s edition of the Globe & Mail: “You may know that the polls show the Conservatives about 10 points ahead of the Liberals in this federal election campaign.” Yet another shining example of why public polls should be outlawed during election campaigns. In the media savvy world of today, election campaign polls have gone from being a way for political parties internally to

gain insight on how they are faring, to becoming an influential tool to swing public opinion that may or may not be completely accurate. What polling has done today is largely serve as a convincing argument as to why Canadians are voting in less and less numbers. If we are so sure of ourselves about how the election is going to turn out, why bother to vote? The Globe’s article was intended as set-up for Tuesday’s first televised debate for the na-

250-763-7114 DELIVERY 250-763-7575

tional party leaders, but the constant polling numbers reinforce why many people may tune out the leaders. What’s the point? The polls already tell us we are headed to either a Conservative minority or majority government. It’s no wonder the French language debate day was moved so as not to conflict with Game One of the NHL playoff series between Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins. That’s something people in Quebec are really interested in because the

outcome of that series is a crapshoot, it could swing either way. Too bad we can’t say the same about our federal election. Elections are supposed to be about uncertainty, about candidates out there beating the stump for our votes. Instead, pollsters are doing the ground work for the parties by canvassing public opinion constantly. It would heighten the interest in our elections if we all simply replied, “None of your business,” and hung up whenever a polling agency calls.

W IDENTITY CRISIS

B.C. can’t decide if we’re northern USA or western Alberta To the editor: As I was doing my usual morning dog walk around the baseball fields near Recreation Avenue, I noticed the U.S. flag flying on one of the light poles. I looked around but the Canadian flag was nowhere to be seen. It was there over a year ago. I couldn’t help but think about how a odd this was since in these past few years, the Conservative minority government has pushed ahead with essentially selling out to the U.S.

Whether it is matters of security, trade, energy, agriculture, health, labour—you name it, the Conservatives are adopting U.S. standards and policies to the detriment of Canadians. You should know that a vote for the Conservatives is a vote for the U.S. Heck, they might as well just annex us now. I, for one, do not want to be so tied to the U.S. when their economy comes crashing down in the coming year. I have also never seen a B.C. flag

but I am not surprised by this. Actually I’m surprised there isn’t an Alberta flag there, since as someone I know so succinctly put it, Kelowna is a mini Alberta. This should concern you since Albertans don’t care for their environment. Heck, why do they come here? Because they are destroying their own environment. You just have to look at the tar sands ecological disaster. You should know that a vote for the Conservatives is a vote for the destruction of the environment, and the

concomitant myth that our economy is actually doing well when it isn’t. If only we could be so wise as to always remember that without an environment, there is no economy. But I forget, there is a great lack of wisdom in the populace, especially when they put hockey above politics, when the lives of celebrities are revered above those in our community who work for progressive social change. Once again the following saying rings so true: What goes around

comes around. I hope all of you have your gardens in with the continuing rising food prices. Wilma van der Veen, Kelowna

Dangerous situation mishandled To the editor: This is what happened when I came home on Thursday this past week. A broken wire was hanging from the power pole across the street. It was lying on the lawn and draped over another wire dangling down. As it turns out it was the telephone wire. I went to a neighbour’s to call Telus about the wire hanging down and the safety hazard it was causing. Well, that was a mistake. I ended up talking to a girl in Manila, Philippines. She made a work order that would get our lines fixed on the 12th—six later. I told her about the loose wire hanging across the lawn, about the fact we have small children in the neighbourhood that may play with it, small animals that may get hurt, an

elderly person who may trip and get hurt and that this was a priority. None of this seemed to matter, she said I could move the wire myself. I asked her for a phone number so that I could speak to a person in my own hemisphere, my own continent, my own country, my own province or even in my own city. No, I could not! I called the non-emergency RCMP in Westbank. Sandy, the switchboard operator, tried to help me. She provided me a Telus number and I spoke to a fellow in Kelowna who immediately patched me through to Manila, Philippines! I called the non-emergency fire department in Westbank; they patched me through to the Kelowna Fire Department who placed a phone called to Chief Topham of the Peachland Fire

Department. Our fire department came to the house with the fire truck and rolled up the wire and left it on the deck until Telus can come to fix it in six days. What a sad, sad, situation. In the mean time we are without telephone communication, my 83-year-old mother lives here and while I am at work she is alone, without communication to emergency contacts. Telus has lost the milk of human kindness and seems to care very little about their customers/clients. Thank you Chief Topham and his crew for coming to help a member in our community. Hats off to our volunteer fire department members. Mary Lynn Entz, Peachand

Letter writer doubts ICBC rates are fair To the editor: Listen up folks, did you know the B.C. government is skimming off $778 million in excess ICBC premiums over three years? That’s right, ICBC overcharged vehicle owners to the tune of $778 million. The Liberals slide this money into general revenue.

This money belongs to those who overpaid for their insurance, not to top up the government’s slush fund. On the other hand Manitoba Public Insurance (MPL) must return $320 million to car owners by May 31. That’s a 45 per cent rebate.

The rebate means if you paid $1,000 on your 2009/10 insurance, you’ll see a cheque for $450. Hope I didn’t spoil your day. Rick Brown, Kelowna

Pets are in jeopardy if left alone outside the neck and proceeded to travel back up the street the way it had come. I was shocked at first, then grabbed my coat and flew out the door and across the street to confront him. The dog in his mouth squirmed just at that time which caused the coyote to drop the dog to get a better grip on his neck. I was able to scream and startle the coyote but that only made him stop for a moment and then start running, still holding the small dog.

I gave chase but was unable to catch up to the coyote. It was lucky for me that a young man who had been taking some returns back to the bottle depot spotted me yelling and gave chase. He was able to catch up to the coyote and kick at it thus making it drop the terrified pet. This happened all within a time frame of probably two or three minutes. The owner had not even known that his dog had gone missing until he heard our yelling. That coyote was a young male

and completely unafraid of being in town or the people. They may hunt between dusk and dawn but this one was in town at nine in the morning. I found out later from speaking with different neighbours that the coyote had travelled down the lane at the back of my home and crossed the street to the back lane of my neighbour. It had first tried to attack another dog as large as he was, without success, then, spotting the smaller dog on the other

property, decided to come around the block and attacked from the front of the property where the dog’s owner could not see it. If it had not been for the quick response of that young man who was able to run like the wind and save that pet, then the outcome would have been tragic. Animals that are running loose in town are under potential threat of attack. Debbora Lem, Kelowna

Pets at risk when traps put out for wildlife To the editor: Residents of Glenrosa need to be on the look-out for traps which may injure their pets or curious children. On the night of Sunday, April 3, my cat Moca got his foot caught in a leghold trap which someone

in the McTaggart Road area presumably set to catch small wildlife, such as a raccoon or squirrel. This is an urban forest interface region where we frequently see a considerable range of wildlife. Most residents are not upset by this, but if you

are, then please consult with the appropriate government agency or animal protection groups such as TRACS on how to livetrap animals and release them in a suitable habitat. I certainly hope no other animals are injured in these traps and that no

To the editor: Barry Gerding’s acticle in the Friday, April 8 edition of the Capital News was of great interest to me. (Coyote Releases Grip on Cat when Suddenly Confronted) I had a similar experience on Sunday, April 2. I don’t know what made me look out of my front window but when I did, I saw a coyote walking briskly down Coronation Avenue. It stopped in front of my neighbour’s yard across the street and picked up his 13-year-old dog by

A small corner of The Bay store in Kelowna’s Orchard Park Mall will have a definitive British flavour on Friday to help celebrate the Royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. To mark the Royal nuptials, the Winsmoor boutique outlet in The Bay will host a high tea celebration from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The boutique staff—manager Wanda Silver and staff Affaneh Janamian, Aniko Kalocsai and Lynora Darling—will be serving tea and scones while wearing some of the Winsmoor fashion line items. “I think it’s fabulous,” said staffer Lynora Darling of the couple tieing the knot. “I think they’ve been able to wait long enough to get to know one another, and I think it’s wise for them not to get married until they were in their 30s.” For a $5 ticket, shoppers can also be eligible for a variety of different door prizes and gift certificates. The actual wedding ceremony takes place at Westminster Abbey on April 29.

W FEDERAL ELECTION

Independent won’t abdicate his independence in Ottawa Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Sean Upshaw says if he gets elected and sent to Ottawa, he won’t leave his beliefs, outspokenness or “his voice” in the Okanagan-Coquihalla riding. The independent candidate, who is running in part because he did not win the Conservative nomination and is upset about how the official Tory candidate Dan Albas won it, says if he is successful he wants to work with the Conservatives as if he was one of them. To that end, he said he likes the Tory platform that was released last week. But he is also critical of the former government of Stephen Harper, saying it’s obvious it has “a bit of an ethics issue” over being found in contempt of Parliament for not releasing figures Opposition MPS requested about the cost of new fighter jets and anti-crime programs. Also, when the election was called, a Conservative cabinet minister, Bev Oda appeared about to be found in contempt of Parliament by a committee for misleading the to the House of Commons over rejection of funding for a non-profit aid organization. In the end, there was no finding against Oda because of the election call. “I have some concerns about (the Conservative government’s ethics) too,” Upshaw told the Capital News this week on the campaign trail. But he said he is willing to work the Tories. Despite expressing that publicly—something Liberal, NDP and Green candidates have also done— Upshaw said he fully expects to be welcomed by the Tories if elected. “Unlike (officials party) candidates who have been muzzled, I can say what I want. If they don’t say anything, they can’t make mistakes.” Upshaw, who calls himself an “independent Conservative,” wanted the Conservative nomination in Okanagan-Coquihalla and has accused the riding association of rigging it in favour of Albas. The association and outgoing MP Stockwell Day — who publicly announced he would not run again just a few days before the election was called— have both denied there was anything untoward about the nomina-

tion process. Day told the Capital News at the time that some candidates were just quicker off the mark than others. Albas defeated West Kelowna businessman Rusty Ensign for the nomination. Others, including Upshaw, complained that they did not have enough

time to get their nomination papers in and approved but Albas and Ensign did. Upshaw is the only independent currently in the Okanagan-Coquihalla race. He is running against Albas, Liberal John Kidder, David Finns of the NDP and Dan Bouchard

of the Green Party. Upshaw said if elected he will not “leave (himself) behind,” when he goes to Ottawa but rather will make his voice heard in Ottawa. He even invoked the ghost of the late Chuck Cadman, who, as a Tory, voted against the majori-

ty in his party to defeat a Tory private member’s bill motion that would have banned same-sex marriage in Canada. Cadman said he did so because that was the wish of a majority of his constituents. As for the Tory platform, he said he believes a strong military is impor-

tant for Canada and likes the focus on the economy and rebalancing the federal budget a year earlier than stated in last budget. Upshaw said he shares the same values as the Conservative Party despite his criticism of the former government and could work with it.

A realtor, Upshaw estimates he has already lost close to $40,000 in potential business by turning his attention towards the campaign and the effect it has had on gaining potential real estate clients. But he said it is worth it as a matter of principle. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Actually, traveling around Ireland, seeing the people and being part of those traditions is an experience not to be missed. Ireland and the Irish will seep into your soul and leave an indelible impression. The Irish are very social, love a good party and are renowned for their festivals and fairs as well as their pubs.

Did you know the largest collection of recorded myths, tales and legends is held at the University College of Dublin? The famous legend of kissing the Blarney Stone to gain the eternal gift of eloquence is just one of over 100,000 amassed there. While the origins of the custom of kissing the Blarney Stone aren’t clear, the Irish reputation for the lyrical and lilting ‘gift of the gab’ has remained strong through the ages, as have the image of Ireland as a land of romance and magic. Faeries in Ireland are

part of the Sidhe (pronounced shee) which translates to “people of the mounds.” Unlike their continental European counterparts, they are not diminutive but rather strong, tall beings that interacted with mortals, giving protection, healing and teaching them skills. The mythology of the Sidhe is still strong in Ireland today, despite its strong Christian roots. The culture is immersed in folklore and even natural landscape features are the stuff of legends. The majestic and magical Cliffs of Moher

have been used for films such as the Princess Bride and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Today, the cliffs are one of Ireland’s top attractions, attracting one million visitors annually. An amazing 214 meters (702 feet) at their highest point, the cliffs fall sharply to the Atlantic Ocean below and run for a total length of eight kilometres. While Ireland has seen mass exodus of its population over the centuries, today modern Ireland enjoys more immigration than emigration and an enviable youthful outlook with over half of its population under 30. Well worth discovering, Ireland is living the motto, Erin go Bragh (Ire-

land Forever). *** The Interior Savings Fat Cat Children’s Festival is an annual festival offering performances, arts, workshops and activ-

ities for kids of all ages. Join us for a Global Adventure this June 10 and 11, 2011 as we celebrate Where in the World is Fat Cat? at Waterfront Park. You’ll get a wee

tion deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), British Columbia received a failing grade. The report was produced by the Centre for ADHD Advocacy in Canada (CADDAC) and examined various systems of special education across the country to evaluate their potential impact on students with ADHD. It found significant inconsistencies from province to province and three provinces were given a failing grade—B.C., Quebec and Ontario. In B.C., a diagnosis of ADHD alone does not qualify a student for an official designation as an ‘exceptional student’, which means that unless there is a co-existing disorder, the student will not qualify for the right to receive any accommodations in the way they are taught or evaluated at school. This failure to recognize ADHD as a legitimate learning disorder has led to inconsistencies in how those with this condition receive special education services in our province—if they receive them at all. ADHD is a neurological disorder affecting approximately five per

These kids often have difficulty functioning in a typical school environment because they have deficits in regulating attention and impulse control, among other things. For many, some consideration of their condition—such as extra time to complete assignments, breaks during the day to move around, breaking up large tests into smaller packets and other interventions can make a big difference in allowing them to reach their academic potential. According to the national director of the Centre for ADHD Advocacy Canada, standards must be brought forward to ensure the needs of students with ADHD in all provinces are met. This means those with

the condition should qualify for special education resources and access to appropriately trained educators. It also means ensuring every child can access the interventions deemed appropriate by their doctor. On a nation-wide basis, the CADDAC is campaigning for fairness in education and calling on governments to make sure ADHD is recognized as a legitimate disorder and have appropriate supports in place for those who need them. Specifically, the organization wants ADHD to be formally recognized by provincial ministries of education as well as professional education bodies and would like to see the provision of mandatory professional development on ADHD in all school boards across the country. The more our educators and governments learn about this condition and the way it can affect functioning for the thousands of children who live with it, the sooner we can eradicate the negative stigma associated with ADHD and help all children reach their potential.

Post-secondary education should be federal election issue

I

f you have been following the federal election campaigns, you will have noticed a lot of talk about funding postsecondary education.

The Liberal platform includes the Canadian Learning Passport, which would provide high school students up to $4,000 in bursary funding

if they enroll in a college or university. In the Conservative camp, their new budget looked at expanding the current Canada Stu-

dent Loan program with a $34-million investment. Regardless of who you plan to vote for, postsecondary education and how we fund colleges and

universities is a big issue. There are those who argue that a post-secondary education is a right, not a privilege. Based on this premise,

students should not have to pay to go to school. Some countries do provide tuition-free postsecondary education but these are far and few be-

tween. France, for example, doesn’t charge tuition: Students pay on average about $220 per year to cover basic costs beyond teaching. Yet France pays the price for a tuition-free system.

The country ranks poorly when it comes to the quality of their postsecondary system and although it has tried to implement some form of tuition, there is little appetite in the country for such a radical change. Since the global recession, funding cuts to higher education have occurred in the United States, in parts of Canada, most of Europe and Japan. Along with this, all these countries have witnessed increases in unemployment which translates to higher enrolments in colleges and universities. Today most schools are trying to figure out how to deal with increased student demand on a tighter budget. Without increases in government funding, post-secondary institutions can respond to increases in student demand in two ways. They can increase their tuition fees which allows them to offer more courses and programs, or they can attract private investors to fund and support programming and other initiatives. Although this sounds simple, it isn’t. When it comes to publicly funded education, governments don’t always allow schools to increase their tuition fees whenever they want and to whatever amount. So even if a school realizes it needs more money because more students want to attend, tuition increases can only help so much and they don’t always guarantee the financial return the school is looking for. Conservative and Liberal post-secondary platforms are targeting support to students in the form of aid. They are doing this to offset the annual tuition increases most colleges

have their methods of determining who gets in, it’s very hard for most institutions and the people who work there to turn qualified students away when we don’t have a seat for them in a classroom. Collectively, we need to find ways to reduce the barriers to accessing a post-secondary education. We should be looking for ways to make it affordable for individuals, and ensure that the nation’s colleges and universities have the resources to provide the programs and classes that those students need and want. That’s an issue for every political party.

and universities have had to implement in the last few years. So in a roundabout way, instead of providing funding to help colleges and universities deal with increasing costs, they are offsetting the cost of going to school for the individual student. The concept is that providing support to individuals will increase our post-secondary participation rates and therefore, decrease our unemployment rates. What it doesn’t do is help post-secondary institutions deal with the here and now and how they can provide enough spaces for all students who want to attend. Even though schools

Fernando Varela’s introduction to the world of opera singing started because he was chasing a girl. Varela was a teenager then, but today at the age of 30, he has transformed that introduction to the world of opera into a musical career. The marketing machine now behind Varela labels him as “the next big

thing” in music, following in the path of other singers such as Josh Groban and Michael Buble. But Varela prefers to ignore the marketing hype and focus on the music, which he calls a fusion of classical opera meeting classic rock. “I was classically trained and had a traditional opera career going, but I’ve always liked doing other types of music as well,” said Varela, in a recent interview with

the Capital News from his home in Orlando, Fla. “What I want to do is take some of those classic rock standards and infuse them with some classical music touches.” Varela has been able to make a living as a singer for the past decade. “It’s a little scary and exciting at the same time where I am at right now, but I’m fortunate to not have had a real job for the past 10 years,” he laughs. “I’ve been able to make a living as a singer.” A native of Puerto Rico, Varela immigrated with his family to Florida at the age of 8. So what was the deal with the girl? “She was 17 and studying opera, and I was looking for a way to meet her, spend more time with her. The backup chorus was looking for male singers which were hard to find for opera productions,” Varela recalled.

SINGER Fernando Varela will perform a concert April 19 at the Kelowna Community Theatre. “I had no experience singing but they needed a body so accepted me into the chorus right off. The rest I learned as I went along.” His natural vocal ability started to attract the attention of opera singing teachers and coaches, who suggested he pursue an opera singing career. “Everything just seemed to fall into place, which I guess says it was meant to be,” he said. “At first I was in the chorus just for fun, and after a few notable teachers suggested I should pursue this, that I had something

in me, I felt good about that and I had the support of those coaches and teachers along the way.” As for the girl, she and Varela dated for four years before they broke up, but he credits her today with opening a musical door that he never knew existed for him.

Draft prep a rite of spring for Frey Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The on-ice fortunes of the Kelowna Rockets— particularly in springtime—are never far from Lorne Frey’s thoughts. Still, as is the case each and every April, the Rockets’ player personnel director and assistant GM finds himself occupied more with the club’s future than the present. With the Western Hockey League’s bantam draft just three weeks away, Frey and his scouting staff are making their customary spring swing through Western Canada, along with a stop in California, to get one last look at the best available 1996born talent. Frey has already been to tournaments in Winnipeg and Kamloops this month, and this weekend will be in Lethbridge to take a final scan of Alberta’s top prospects. Next week, he’ll head to Anaheim for the WHL U.S. Prospects Camp, then will wrap up his scouting expedition back in Kamloops at the end of the month at the B.C. Best Ever tournament.

Lorne Frey After a season of evaluating as many as 800 players, Frey is about to draw up his final conclusions in advance of the bantam draft—the lifeblood of every WHL franchise. “This is probably the most important time of the whole year for us,” said Frey. “In these yearend tournaments, it’s the best of the best competing against their peers in each province. You get a good idea of what they can do against each other. Some players will separate themselves a little bit from the rest, and that’s going to determine a lot about what we’re going to do at the draft.” With three decades of scouting under his belt— the last 21 years with the

Rockets franchise—Frey is hard-pressed to remember a time when so many players fit a similar profile. Frey said after the top tier of available talent, there isn’t much to differentiate in the next group where as many as 100 players or more could be lumped into the same category. “It’s getting harder and harder to identify and separate players from each other, there are a lot out there with the same kinds of skills and very good skills,” said Frey. “With the schools and academies, the kids get a lot of ice time and they seem develop a lot faster than they used to. The club teams are also doing a really good job with the coaching that’s out there now. There’s very little discrepancy, so that really adds to the challenge of deciding which way you’re going to go.” The Rockets will choose 15th overall in the opening round of the bantam draft on May 5 in Calgary. Based on their current 50-player list, the Rockets’ overall strength ap-

pears to be on defense. With rookie Damon Severson, 16, continuing to develop, and prospects Jesse Lees and Madison Bowey waiting in the wings, conventional wisdom might see Kelowna leaning towards a forward with its first pick. Not necessarily the case, says Frey. “Really, you can never have enough defencemen, so if a defencemen happens to be the best player available when our picks comes up, then that’s who we’ll take. If it’s a forward, then that’s the way we’ll go…whoever the best player available happens to be.” While much of Frey’s time these days is consumed with travel and final preparations for the draft, he continues to ride the wave of another potential playoff run by the Rockets. He missed significant stretches of the 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2009 playoffs, each of which resulted in either a WHL or Memorial Cup title. Still, Frey is more than happy to cheer from afar if the 2010-11 version of the Rockets can follow a sim-

ilar path. “They don’t need me back there…I’m used to being away at this time of year anyway,” he said Monday. “The guys have been doing well so far. Hopefully they can keep this going for a while yet.”

CENTRAL SCOUTING RANKINGS

Three Kelowna Rockets forwards have been listed in Central Scouting’s final rankings in advance of the NHL entry draft this summer in Minnesota.

Zach Franko is rated 123rd, Shane McColgan is 125th, while Jessey Astles comes in at 160th. As of Tuesday, McColgan led the Rockets in playoff scoring with 15 points.

Bike Barn takes Ski2Sea, Wade wins solo Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

THE BIKE BARN team from Penticton heads for the finish line to take first place overall at the 2011 edition of the Ski2Sea Race Sunday in Kelowna.

Evan Guthrie’s first tour of duty with the Bike Barn team proved to be a winning proposition for both parties. The 20-year-old from Peachland used his worldclass mountain biking skills to hand his teammates a sizable lead as Bike Barn hung on to take the 31st Ski2Sea Race Sunday in Kelowna. Guthrie, a two-time World Cup junior champ, tore off the mountain biking leg in just 39 minutes seven seconds—the best ride by more than four minutes—to overtake both Fresh Air and UBCO Voco Quick on the third leg of the race. Bike Barn held a seven-minute lead heading into the final two legs, but Fresh Air made it interesting with strong finishing

leg in the canoe. In the end, Guthrie and Bike Barn prevailed in the six-leg, 95 km event from Big White to City Park in three hours 15 minutes 17 seconds. Fresh Air was a close second in 3:16:36. Despite less than ideal conditions on the biking trail, Guthrie was more than happy to help the Bike Barn take top honours. It was also his first personal win in four tries at Ski2Sea. “It was a real mud show,” laughed Guthrie, when asked about the trail conditions. “This was nice because it was a race I wanted to take off my list. “It’s such a fun event, too,” Guthrie continued. “It’s a good communitybacked race and it gets a of attention here in town. You don’t have to be super-serious to do either. Anyone can be in it, so that’s great.”

Joining Guthrie on the winning team was alpine skier Aart Van Kooy, cross country skier Jeff Kerkovious, road biker Jonathan Caron, runner Jeff Symonds and canoers Brad Leigh and Dave Kitsen. The Fresh Air team— which returned this spring to compete after a one-year break—featured Glenn Bond, Dave Harborian, Sean Williams, Zak Taylor, Aaron Heidt, Bob Woodman and Harry James. In the soloist category, Gary Wade encountered a number of challenges, but the multi-skilled Kelowna athlete was still the first male to cross the line in eighth spot overall. Wade, 43, whose bike fell off his roof rack prior to the race, won the event for the third time since 2002 with a time of 3:50:55.

Kari Bailey was the lone female soloist and completed the six-leg race in 4:25:02. Other class winners were: • Forced Effort won the open mixed division in 4:03:34. • Critical Performance topped the women’s event in 4:06:55 • Fresh Air Masters was best among Masters teams in 3:28:47. • Skookum Juniors were the junior winners in 3:48:37. • The Real Fresh Air Experience won the recreational division in 3:53:57 • UBC Human Kinetics-Chainline topped the corporate class in 3:34:06. A total of 103 teams and soloists were entered in the 31st edition of the Ski2Sea Race with 101 of them crossing the finish line.

Coyotes split 4 at Elks Stadium The Okanagan College Coyotes overcame a shaky start to the weekend to earn a split of four games in Canadian Collegiate Baseball Conference action. Saturday at Elks Stadium, OC opened with a 5-2 loss to Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs. Cory Wood went the distance and took the loss for the Coyotes, scattering 10 hits. Offensively, Reed Quall had three hits for OC. In their second game, the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack blanked OC 5-0 as Todd Leavitt suffered the loss. Aidan McVea delivered four hits in the defeat.

On Sunday, the Coyotes gained a measure of revenge beating the Wolfpack 7-0. PeteTollenaar tossed six inning of twohit ball for the win, while Stefan McKee drove in three runs and Quall scored three times. In the weekend finale, OC edged past PBA 3-2. Kyle Monster went seven innings on the mound for the win. Brady Guimond had two hits and scored twice for the Coyotes. OC (4-4) returns to action Friday night at Elks Stadium when they host the Calgary Dinos. On Saturday at 3 p.m., the Coyotes will battle TRU, then will take on PBA and TRU on Sunday at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.

SPORTS W RUGBY

Crows sweep Hornets with 3 tries in first from Cameron The Kelowna Crows posted a pair of convincing wins over the Nanaimo Hornets in B.C. Rugby union spring action on Saturday at City Park. In the opener, rookie winger Thomas Cameron had a break out game scoring three tries and was

named the back of the match as the Crows won the second division game 58-16. Other scorers for the Kelowna included Derek Dempsey with two tries, Barry Ebl, Aaron Zimmer, Nick Kober each added one, and Grady Krohman nailed four conversions.

In the second match of the day, the Crows first division squad posted a solid 39-22 win. It was the Crows superior fitness and drive that was the difference as Judah Campbell led Kelowna with two tries. Evan Crocker, Chris Hill and Daniel Blas-

co each added tries while hooker Richard Brewer made two penalty kicks and four conversions. However, the real story of the game was the solid support and physical play provided by the Kelowna forwards, notably brothers Danny and Jake Illichmann.

Backs Richard Schouten and David-James Pauls also had noteworthy performances. The Crows—both first and second division teams with 2-1 records— will play their final regular season game of the Province League spring season

this Saturday against Surrey.

GRIZZ RUGBY

The West Kelowna Grizzlies posted a 24-11 win over Merritt in Okanagan Rugby third division action Saturday. New 8th-man Jayden

Warm weather is ideal for ticks

T

Wednesday, April 13, 2011 Capital News

NEWS

icks are one of the infectious agents active in the Okanagan Valley’s warm spring and summer, putting our pets at risk of contracting diseases. Ticks attach to warm blooded beings, including humans, and suck their blood. In the action, ticks may transmit a few different of diseases to the host. Two of the most com-

mon in our area are lyme disease and tick paralysis. Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by a bacteria borrelia burgdorferi, and it’s transmitted by the common deer tick. Cats can get infected but are much less susceptible to the disease than dogs. But not all dogs that are exposed to the bacteria will actually get sick. If the body and the dog’s

immune system is strong, it might fight the bacteria without developing the disease symptoms. Clinical illness in dogs usually occurs two to five months after a tick bite. The most common symptoms are fever, swelling in the joints, lameness, enlarged lymph nodes, lethargy and loss of appetite. It’s not common, but lyme disease can also lead

FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz to kidney failure. Some dogs may also develop heart problems or nervous system disease after being

infected. Dogs do not develop the skin rash, redness and rushes around the bite common in people. The diagnosis of lyme disease is based on the clinical symptoms, a positive blood test and good response to treatment. Dogs that were vaccinated or were exposed to the bacteria, but did not develop the disease, may

show a positive result on the blood test. Lyme disease is treated by a long course of antibiotics. Pain control medications are often required when the joints are affected by the disease. The response to treatment should be fairly rapid. If an animal that is suspected of having lyme disease does not improve within 48 hours of starting antibiotics, it is best to assume that the problem is not lyme disease. Then, other diagnostic tests would need to be done. Tick paralysis is the only tick-borne disease that is not caused by an infectious organism. The illness is caused by a toxin produced in the tick and transmitted through its saliva. This toxin affects the animal’s nerves. Early signs may include change or loss of voice, vomiting or dilatation of the dog’s pupils. The paralysis starts gradually, first with hind leg weakness and troubled coordination, then complete paralysis. Eventually, the animal is unable to move its back or front legs, and has trouble stand, sitting or lifting its head. The respiratory system is compromised leading to laboured breathing and eventually respiratory failure. The diagnosis of tick paralysis is difficult as specific laboratory diagnostic techniques are not available. The diagnosis is based on finding a tick on the pet along with the characteristic signs. Often the tick is not present any more. Removal of all ticks usually results in obvious improvement within 24 hours. A failure to recover indicates that at least one tick may be still be attached, or that the diagnosis should be reviewed. With both lyme disease and tick paralysis, prevention is the key. Tick control is probably the most important thing an owner can do to protect a cat or dog. There are a few recommended topical products for tick control. There is also a vaccine available against lyme disease. Avoiding contracting these diseases is much easier then treating and recovering from them. Please consult your veterinarian about more information on tick-borne diseases and tick control protocols.

eptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of the esophagus, stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is burning pain that can be felt anywhere from the navel up to the breastbone and can be worse on an empty stomach or at night and can disappear then return for a few days or weeks. This pain is caused by the ulcer and is aggravated by stomach acid coming into contact with it. Less common symptoms may include dark blood in stools or stools that are black or tarry, nausea or vomiting, unexplained weight loss and appetite changes. Peptic ulcers occur when the acid in the digestive tract eats away at the inner surface of the upper digestive tract, from the esophagus to the small intestine. The acid can create a painful open sore that may bleed. The digestive tract is coated with a mucous layer that normally protects against acid. But if this balance is disrupted, either by an increase in the amount of acid or a decrease in the amount of mucus, an ulcer can develop. If left untreated, peptic ulcers can lead to internal bleeding, infection of the abdominal cavity (peritonitis) and scar tissue that can interfere with the functioning of the digestive tract. Ulcers can be due to a variety of causes, including a bacterial infection in the digestive tract and frequent or regular use of pain relievers or prescription medications that irritate or inflame the lining of the digestive tract. Other factors that contribute to ulcers are smoking, drinking alcohol and stress. Western medical treatment for peptic ulcers typically involves antibiotics along with medications to reduce the level of acid in the digestive system to relieve pain and encourage healing. A switch in medications may be needed if they are contributing to the ulcer. In Chinese medicine, peptic ulcers

are considered a type of epigastric pain. Internal imbalances in the stomach or liver organs are typically at the root of this. The accompanying James symptoms—such as the Kaufman nature and time of pain, thirst, nausea, taste in the mouth and feelings of distention or fullness—will point towards the underlying imbalance that is causing the ulcer and direct the acupuncturist towards the appropriate treatment. This in turn makes acupuncture a very effective tool in the treatment of ulcers. In fact, acupuncture can give excellent results in the treatment of epigastric pain, relieving pain and promoting healing of the ulcer. Acupuncture also works to strengthen the digestive system and encourage its healthy functioning. This in turn makes the stomach less susceptible to digestive disturbances such as ulcers. A number of factors contribute to ulcers and knowing these can help with the prevention. External factors such as exposure to cold and dampness can play a role, and diet is of course also very important as poor eating habits can weaken the health of our digestive system and make it more prone to disorders. This can include not only the foods we eat, but also how much we eat (overeating, under-eating, or eating irregular amounts throughout the day), eating too fast or eating on the run, eating late in the day, eating when emotionally upset, or going back to work too quickly after work. Another contributing factor is our emotions—not only stress but also anger, frustration, worry and over-thinking. Finally, our genes play a role, as we are all born with our own set of strengths and weaknesses. Knowing these weaknesses means that we can adjust our habits accordingly to prevent problems down the road and promote optimal health.

For fashion conscious people of all ages, eyeglass frames are now colourful and designed to enhance the features you were born with. One new business in Kelowna that offers that service is Venus Eye Boutique, at 560 West Ave. Owned by award winning designer Mike Christiansen and his wife Brandi, who are from Edmonton, the shop is beautifully displayed with revolutionary eyewear designs. This year’s styles are all about lively and bright colours, such as tangerine, lemon and citrus. The store’s petite ladies and children’s selection is unparalleled, having won 28 product awards. The exclusive Venus Eye fashion eyewear is sold in 3,300 locations across Canada. The Kelowna shop is fun, modern and bright and they offer a full line of limited edition sunglasses, reasonably priced. All the unique designs are comfy and “perfectly fit the human face.” Lise Bowman is Venus’ licensed optician/contact lens fitter. Call 250763-1351 or www.venuseyedesign.com. Congratulations to Nick Arkle, woodlands manager of Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd., on his being elected chair of the Council of Forest Industries.

THIS IS ASHLEY

For three years Ashley was sexually abused.

But now she has her smile back. WHEN ASHLEY FIRST VISITED US she was scared. Arriving early she waited to see her counsellor. As time went by, the more scared she became. Then a little girl came out of her appointment. While her mom spoke with the counsellor, she waited in reception and played with the toys. The little girl looked up at Ashley, and made eye contact. Ashley realized that this little girl was here for the same reason that she was. At that moment she knew she was not alone. For the ďŹ rst time in a long time Ashley smiled - at her new friend.

We believe that women and girls can be strong alone, but they can be fearless together. Our services and programs take abuse victims beyond crisis to a future without fear.

The studio ranked 19th out of the top 100 employers. “Ever since we launched Club Penguin in 2005 we’ve focused on creating a fun and rewarding work environment that’s driven by strong values, and we work really hard to maintain it, particularly as we continue to grow and expand globally,” said Lane Merrifield, one of Club Penguin’s cofounders and now executive vice-president of Disney Online Studios.

Local 3D expertise to assist art project that will feature Father Pandosy Local artist Crystal Pryzbille is just one year away from unveiling a unique commemorative sculpture, thanks in part to a generous gift from Kelowna-based manufacturer FormaShape. Pryzbille’s creation of a largerthan-life bronze statue depicting Father Pandosy, commissioned by the Okanagan Historical Society to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his settlement in Kelowna, was given a leg up when FormaShape agreed to donate the foam armature—the framework around which a sculpture is built—needed to prepare a clay original for casting. FormaShape was able to craft a full-scale 6-foot-8 armature from Pryzbille’s original 16-inch clay maquette (scale model) using their

5-Axis CNC Router, the largest of its kind in Western Canada, and the services of Vancouver-based RnD Precision Imaging. Pryzbille will now use the FormaShape armature to create the finished statue of Father Pandosy. “We were delighted to offer our support to this worthwhile community project,” said FormaShape general manager Tim Boothman. “While our customers are around the world, our roots are firmly planted in the Okanagan Valley and we were pleased to have a hand in sharing this piece of Kelowna’s history with local residents and visitors alike.” FormaShape is renowned for industry-leading manufacture of waterslides for clients such as Disney

Cruise Lines, but their plant is also capable of generating highly detailed models like the one made for this heritage project. Russ Mulder, mould shop manager, said the entire process was smooth, efficient and very interesting. “We had a fantastic CAD image from RnD Precision Imaging in just four days and had all the pieces assembled from the router a week later. It generated a lot of interest on the shop floor, and we’re really excited to see the finished product next spring.” The sculpture will be gifted to the City of Kelowna Public Art Collection and unveiled at a ceremony in Mission Recreation Park next March.

BUSINESS

Whatever happened to customer service? I

had a superb experience as a customer at a Vancouver car dealership this past weekend. Reflecting back, it occurred to me that this has rbeen a rare occurrence for me lately. Customer service is, of course, the window through which customers view a business. Not surprisingly, poor service is one of the chief tcomplaints of customers. It comes in all shapes and sizes and can sour a relationship to the point where the customer quiettly moves on to obtain goods or services elsewhere. Studies have reported that half of all shoppers treport multiple customer service problems during any given shopping trip. In my own experience, there are three versions of poor customer service which are particularly likely to jeopardize the relationship. The first involves the employee blaming the customer for whatever the issue happens to be. To be sure, there are occasions when the customer is at fault, but a tendency to leap to the conclusion that the customer has done something wrong can be particularly aggravating. I recall getting on an aircraft in Victoria a few years ago, having earlier checked in and received my ticket. As I boarded, I showed my ticket to the flight attendant. She frowned and told me there was no seat for me (it seems that two tickets had been issued with the same seat number). That was irritating in and of itself but it’s what happened next that really left a bad taste. She started to say, “The problem is that you

YOU WORK HERE

Robert Smithson (dot, dot, dot).� Quickly sensing where this was going, I interjected to inform that I had done nothing other than walk up to her company’s check-in counter and receive a ticket. It was their job, not mine, to ensure that the ticket had a valid seat number (with no other body sitting in it!). It’s amazing how these unpleasant encounters stick firmly in the memory of the consumer. I can’t recall why I was in Victoria on that occasion or anything else about my trip, but I clearly recall the exchange with the flight attendant. My second beef involves the employee, rather than taking responsibility for a problem, simply handing the customer off to someone else. It happens to me all the time in department stores in particular. I also had a recent experience to that effect here in Kelowna. We had been having ongoing problems getting an expensive job completed properly in our home. I was working slowly through the process of attempting to get the problem fixed. Just getting in contact with the company’s representatives by telephone was a challenge. When I finally reached a representative of the business to explain one particular portion of the problem, the response I got was, “Oh, that’s for Jack to take care of.�

Rather than assuring me he would promptly track down Jack to have him take care of the issue, he left it in my hands to locate the other employee and achieve the desired resolution. What that told me was that this employee considered his own time to be more valuable than mine. That is also a definite customer service flaw, in my view. The third thing that I experience time and time again is employees who simply don’t take their customers’ issues seriously. In the face of unsatisfied customers, they take a blasÊ approach and brush off client concerns. It’s one thing to calmly assure your customers that their issue is not critical and can be addressed. It is another

thing to demonstrate total apathy about the problem. I had an experience with a bike shop last year which comes to mind. I had bought new tires for my mountain bike from this shop and, each of the first three times I rode the bike (on-road only), I ended up with a flat tire. I had owned this bike for 10 years and had never previously experienced a flat. So, three consecutive blowouts seemed to me to be testing the limits of pure chance. I took the wheel back to the bike shop to be repaired and, each time, my frustration grew. The reaction I got amounted to, “These things happen.� That didn’t make me feel any better—to the contrary, it just made me

more upset. The way for companies to overcome these issues is through training and indoctrination of employees. I am confident that basics of customer service can be trained, and that even the most socially inept person can be taught how to deal respectfully and productively with the clients of the business. The indoctrination element relates to making the employees feel a part of the company’s culture as it relates to customer service. It’s about teaching employees that every contact they have with a client contributes to the totality of how the company is viewed by the general public. Many customers will stick with a company which has only average

products if only they are treated well and provided with effective service. The entire fast-food business, for example, has survived on the strength of the premise that fair-tomiddling food can be sold to people who value service and speed. The ones which have been highly successful have demonstrated an understanding that repetitive training and indoctrination are the keys to consistently good customer service. That can result in employees who demonstrate great customer service by saying things like, “Sir, we’ll address that right away and I’m going to personally ensure it’s done to your satisfaction.� Back to the car dealership in Vancouver, these folks clearly understand

these concepts. They went out of their way to solve every issue which arose, each person I had contact with took complete responsibility for ensuring my satisfaction, and I was never left to fend for myself. Added together, those elements made for a memorable experience which will ensure that I take my business back there in the future. As for those other companies, they shouldn’t expect to see me again anytime soon. Robert Smithson is a labour and employment lawyer, and operates Smithson Employment Law in Kelowna.

ave you ever wanted to be your own boss, or start your own business? If you have what it takes to be your own boss, go for it. Whatever your business idea may be, you can make the choice to do it full-time or part-time. Having your own business allows you to re-

ceive an income and be more in control of your time. If you need to take a day off or mini holiday, you can arrange your schedule to take “me” time off. Being your own boss can lead to a healthier lifestyle. If you do not like your boss or current work envi-

ronment, you are not enjoying the 40 hours per week as an employee. There is a health benefit to consider in changing your employment status if you are not happy. You can look forward to opportunities to reduce the stress and have more control of your life. When you are young, you have the energy to start a business, but may lack the financing. As retirement nears, you are more likely to have cash, experience and industry connections to help you get started. As retirement nears, many people transition from being an employee to doing contract work, as you enter the next stage of your life. Long-time industry experience means you are an excellent source of knowledge, a company does not want to lose. If you decide to start your own business, take good care of yourself and don’t burn out in the process. Take advantage of the

FISCAL FITNESS

Doreen Smith perks of “being your own boss.” Research has shown that keeping socially active is one of the key’s to good health. People who feel useful and keep busy tend to have better health, live a longer and have healthier lifestyles. Whether your business is a hobby that has turned into a profitable enterprise, or if you decide to do a mega venture, you will meet the same challenges. You will need to go through many of the same processes of starting, building and expanding your enterprise. You can start your own home based business and it may outgrow your home, and may need to move to a retail store front or a warehouse type of operation. Start with a plan. Starting a business as an entrepreneur is a step by

step process. You will have to choose a business name, find out what licenses are required, talk to your home insurance agent to ensure you are covered for any business activity in your residence, make a list of the equipment you will need to get started and hang out your shingle. Advertising can be an expensive part of business ownership; you will have to research what type of advertising will work for your new business. You need to get the word out “that you are in business”. Before you leave the world of employment to full-time rest and relaxation, consider the health benefits of staying in the game—on your own terms. Being your own boss means accepting responsibility, risks, lots of work and independence. Embrace the opportunities of entrepreneurship; find the balance between work and life’s pleasures.

UBCO campus Applications for admission to undergraduate programs at UBC Okanagan are expected to top 5,000 this spring, roughly 2.5 times the volume the university saw in 2005, the first year of operation for the Kelowna campus. “Demand is particularly strong for nursing, engineering, and human kinetics,” said Ian Cull, UBCO associate vice-president, students. “All three programs are expected to fill in 2011. “The Ba chelor of Arts program has seen an impressive 24 per cent increase in new applications and will likely be the single greatest contributor to growth at our Okanagan campus this fall.” Cull says direct-entry applications from Okanagan Valley secondary schools are up considerably, by 13 per cent. But the real explosion has been from the Lower Mainland, where 684 students have indicated UBC Okanagan as their first choice of campus, a 45 per cent increase over the previous year. “B.C. post-secondary transfer from other institutions also remains strong, with good applicant growth in local-area transfers,” said Cull. Demand from the rest of Canada continues to grow, with 812 applications—up eight per cent —this year, and applica-

tions from the rest of the world are up 53 per cent from last year. Applications have been received from prospective students in 92 countries. Cull notes that it’s too early to project how many students will be registered this fall. However, he says final enrolment may reach the ultimate goal of 6,932 full-time equivalent students, a target that was set for the UBCO campus by the provincial government. While applications closed on Feb. 28, there is still an opportunity for students to apply for some programs.

W TSUNAMI RELIEF

Fundraising continues for Japan Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It’s been 21 years since Ken Fix, owner of Komatsu Japanese Market, became one of the founding members of the Kasugai-Kelowna sister city partnership with an exchange trip to Japan. Fix is among the crew of locals who have decided to use the regular visit of the Japanese performing group, Ensemble Liberta, to help pull together a benefit concert and auction. “They were going to be performing somewhere anyway, so we chose the (Kelowna) community theatre and decided to make it a disaster relief fundraiser,” said Fix. While today Fix is an expert on Japanese food, providing sushi to places like Superstore and handing out tidbits of info on gourmet cooking to his own market customers, his first time to the country was more of a pioneering effort. The sister city relationship had only been in place a year when a then teenaged Fix was asked, by one of the exchange students who came from Japan, to come over to the country as an ambassador from Canada. Just one year out of high school, he accepted the offer and soon found himself unscrambling the ins and outs of starting an exchange between the two countries, the result of which would turn into a highly evolved program

KEN FIX sloughs off a wrist injury as he works at his

Komatsu Japanese Market and prepares a concert fundraiser to assist Japan after the earthquake and tsunami. for generations of young ambassadors to come. “They didn’t know what to do with me,” said Fix. “So they put me in a kindergarten class and I started to learn the language.” From there it was off to junior high and then into the after school clubs. He started a club to help people practice their English and it is still going on

today, and Fix himself has stayed incredibly active in the sister city organization. Now he will be among the growing band of caring Kelowna residents literally lining up to provide relief to the Japanese people in the face of their ongoing crisis. Former Kelowna mayor Walter Gray will act as master of ceremon-

ies for the up coming concert, and economic development commissioner and popular crooner Robert Fine will be on stage, along with Ryan Donn, Ellen Churchill and Jambalaya. The concert will also provide a venue for the ongoing efforts of Artists for Japan. Started by local artist Carrie Harper, the largely online auction effort raised approximately $5,000 in a week-long donating frenzy that saw artists from around the world donate their work to a Facebook page named Artists for Japan so that art connoisseurs could bid on the pieces. Proceeds were pegged to go to the Red Cross and when the original date was over Harper decided to keep the initiative going and join forces with the benefit concert. As such, Artists for Japan remains an entity on Facebook and is still collecting auction items and bids. There will also be three items auctioned on stage on the benefit concert night— works by Alex Fong, Rod Charlesworth and Connor Charlesworth. The online auction can be found at www.facebook.com/artistsforjapan and closes at 8:30 p.m. on the evening of the concert. The concert runs Monday, May 2, 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Donations can be made at the door with proceeds going to the Red Cross. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

ENTERTAINMENT W CD REVIEWS

Too much the same to give Lavigne a hit AVRIL LAVIGNE: GOODBYE LULLABY (RCA)

Avril Lavigne’s fourth album failed to do what her other three albums did. That is hit No.1 on the domestic album charts.

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell OK, so this disc did hit No.2, but her new single What The Hell (another bratty semi-chant song) is just barely in the top 20, meaning Goodbye Lullaby, although doing well enough by most pop standards, is her least performing album to date. I make this quibble because Goodbye Lullaby is also Lavigne’s least impressive album as a listening experience. These are extremely wordy songs where Lavigne’s voice fills every nook and cranny of every tune with her less than expressive voice. After a while, especially on the Deluxe CD/ DVD edition, where there are 18 songs, the constant verbiage gets annoying. This is also a midtempo, ballad-heavy album with crocodile tears about Lavigne’s split from her husband Deryck Whibley, who often acts awkwardly as producer of songs about their relationship. Talk about a high maintenance ex! But more importantly I just don’t hear a lot of exceptional songs on Goodbye Lullaby where the gassy Lavigne needs more of a strong editor than a good producer. Note that the Deluxe CD/DVD has four acoustic versions of songs you probably didn’t want to hear in their electric versions and a perfunctory cover of Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation (is Avril still a punkette?) while the DVD is engrossed with the making of the album. Fans only. C

THESE KIDS WEAR CROWNS: JUMPSTART (CAPITOL)

I kind of liked Vancouver’s These Kids Wear Crowns’ debut mini album that came out last year. But one’s interest soon wanes over a full

length CD where this sixsome comes off as more of a boy band who are heavy on chant songs. Often these kids sound like they are tuning up for a Whitecaps game with their omnipresent soccer-like chants and the Kids game soon wears thin (not crowns). The group has enjoyed a minor top 40 hit with the youthful and energetic Jumpstart that has a bit of dance rock in its chant where the kids cleverly yell “turn up the radio� to endear themselves to station programmers. Their CD liner shows These Kids Wear Crowns hoisting their flag over a Vancouver skyline like the historic WWII raising of the flag at Iwo Jima, but I don’t hear this boy group with much staying power. C-

SICK PUPPIES: TRI-POLAR (VIRGIN/EMI)

This is the second release from ex-patriot Australians who now call California home. Sick Puppies are best known for their song All The Same that was used by performance artist Juan Mann who used to prowl shopping malls with a “Free Hugs� sign where the responses of the shoppers would be taped. He used Sick Puppies song All The Same (the lead off song on Tri-Polar and sometimes referred to as The Free Hugs Song) for his YouTube contribution that has now had over 15 million hits, meaning

a lot of people have heard Sick Puppies blend of screamo, pop metal and angst rock. The trio is unique with a wonderful female bass player but too many songs on this new album just don’t seem to go anywhere nor excite much interest. There are too many run-of-the-mill relationship songs that lie flat while the lone topical song You’re Going Down is, I think, about antibullying. Tonnes of energy but too often wasted on mediocre material. Maybe next album. C-

this Legacy Edition reissue as a two-CD set. The original studio album stayed at the top of the charts for weeks on end in several countries and spawned four big hits and it proved to be SandG’s fourth and final album before the duo went in different directions. This Deluxe digipak set includes the remastered original album with its 13 tunes that included the hits Cecilia, The Boxer, El Condor Pasa (If I Could) and of course, the epic title song. The real treasure here for old fans is the 17-track concert CD that includes almost all of their other hits such as Homeward Bound, Mrs. Robinson, I Am A Rock, The Sound Of Silence, At The Zoo, Scarborough Fair and more. It is amazing how just two singers and an acoustic guitar could hold such massive audiences in rap-

ture and the galvanizing concert CD here is culled from many different gigs all held in 1969. The liner has an extensive essay and lots of vintage photos. Note: My copy came stickered as CD+DVD set but it was really a two-CD set, so you might want to check with your retailer so you can be sure just what it is you are buying. A

Blues Women join voices to discuss community issues rock from D Healey W VOLUNTEER CENTRE

Dawn Wilkinson CONTRIBUTOR

uring National Volunteer Week women are gathering to discuss issues of newcomers to our community, volunteerism and leadership. Why not join us? Women—Voice for Action! will be held at the Ramada Inn on Friday, April 15. There in no cost to participate. Lunch and child care services are included, but you must sign up in advance to attend.

The Forum is sponsored by the Women’s and Community Advisory Committee, City of Kelowna. The purpose is to seek your ideas. Are there barriers that prevent you from participating in our community? What could be improved? Three panels of local women will share information from different perspectives. Round table discussions will follow each panel so that you can talk about your own experiences with a small group of women.

The first panel will focus on newcomers to the Central Okanagan. Some of the questions to be answered are: What is currently available to help people settle into our community? What have some organizations done to make services more accessible and the content of

programs more inclusive? What are some challenges in dealing with a diverse population? What is it like to move here from another country and become involved? As Canadians, we are known around the world as a volunteering nation. The second panel will set

the stage for small group conversations. What is done locally to encourage volunteering? How important is volunteering to organizations serving our community? What are some of the challenges? What could we do to invite and support more volunteers? Women in leadership is an essential part of a vibrant community. Hear the stories of how three women gained skills as leaders. Who helped them along the way? Were there difficulties to over-

came? How could other women be encouraged to grow as leaders? Would you like to attend this forum? Please register through the Kelowna Women’s Resource Centre at 250-7622355 or email womensforum2011@gmail.com. Dawn Wilkinson is the coordinator for the Community Information and Volunteer Centre. 250-763-8008, ext 24 informkelowna@kcr.ca www.kcr.ca

Mitchell from B9 albums before he ventured into New Orleans jazz. Healey lost his eyesight to cancer as a toddler and a few years ago, at age 41, Healey lost his life to the same illness, but he will always remain one of Canada’s best ever blues guitarists with his unique and incendiary style. Get Me Some was released in 2000 several years after his massive international success with the See The Light album and the big hits Angel Eyes and the title track, but Healey’s later albums deserved a better fate where the hits more or less dried up. Get Me Some has some terrific blues playing especially with the moody Led Zep-styled Feel Better and the accessible, hooky rock of My Life Story and the pub-styled I Should Have Told You. This disc has been out of print for a while so it is nice to see this fine album back in the light of day. B bwcmitchell@shaw.ca

INCOME TAX PROFESSIONALS Tax laws are complex and are constantly changing. If you believe that your tax situation is complicated, perhaps because you are a landlord who receives revenue from rental properties or because you own a small business, entrust your bookkeeping and tax return to professional accountants. They have the expertise to deal with every tax situation and can help you maximize your savings. Tax evasion has major consequences for those who are caught: it can result in a criminal conviction. If they are found guilty, they could receive a heavy fine, go to prison or end up with a criminal record with all the negative repercussions this situation can result in.

NADASDE, MARJORIE HELEN

With deep sadness and heavy hearts our family shares with you the passing of our most dear wife, mother and grandmother. Marj Nadasde was born May 13, 1941 in McLennan, Alberta and passed away in Kelowna BC on April 9, 2011. Lovingly remembered by her loving husband of 50 years, Steve; sons, Wayne (Linda) and Don; grandchildren, Cole and Kara; sisters, Elaine (Garnet) and Verna (Gene). Predeceased by her parents, John and Pat DuRose; brothers, Lawrence, Wade (Shirley) and Jim Durose (Pat). Marj loved her parents deeply, she missed them everyday. She was always happy with a ready smile and a quick wit. She was an extremely kind person, a loving wife and a mother devoted to her husband, children and grandchildren. Her commitment to her family’s happiness and welfare was first and foremost and unconditional. Anyone who knew Marj felt an attachment. Marj and her sons, Wayne and Don had a very special bond.

PRECHTL, EDUARD

February 8, 1925 – April 11, 2011 Eduard Prechtl passed away peacefully on April 11, 201 at his home in West Kelowna with his loving wife Myrna by his side, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 86 years old. Eduard was the son of the late Heinrich Prechtl of Kossentirol, Austria and Theresia Pinosa of Recica, Slovenia. He was born in Blatnica, Bosnia, Hersegovina. Growing up, he learned his craft and eventually completed his training and apprenticeship in Slovenia and earned his trade as a watchmaker, clockmaker and goldsmithing from his uncle, who owned and managed a jewellery business. At his young age, he went back to his hometown in Tesleque working on his trade for a few years. Later he proceeded to Austria, where he practiced his trade for several years. He then moved to Germany for fine mechanics installing clock instruments on airplanes. In 1953, Eduard immigrated to Canada. He settled in Ottawa and continued to work on his trade. As a European jeweller and watchmaker, he opened and managed his own jewellery store named, “Eduard Jewellers” for 28 years. He moved to Kelowna for retirement. He saw the demand for his trade’s expertise. Because of his passion with his profession, he started bringing some work home from various jewellers in Kelowna and Westbank. He worked with West Ridge Diamond Jewellers, Haworth James & Sons Jewellers, J.K. Smith Jewellers, Golden Gems, Codispoti Jewellers, to mention a few. It was here in Kelowna he met the love of his life and got married in 1986. Eduard was involved with the German Men’s Club, “Schlaraffia”, in the North Okanagan. In Honor of his craft, he was known as, “Unruh.” Eduard is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Myrna Tiu Prechtl and most beloved bouvier, “Marack”; his sister Veronica Olga Penit; nephew Eric Penit (Yvonne); niece Carmen Christensen (Milton); nephews Franjo and Joseph in Croatia; sisters-in-law Georgette (Boy); Flordeline; Venus (Dario); Elvie Lysette; brothers-in-law Oscar, Alex (Amy), Rene (Virgie) and Jerry (Rocelle). Eduard lived to the fullest and enjoyed the life together with his wife until his passing. He will be missed by all of his friends and people who knew him. Eduard and Myrna’s family have been touched by the unwavering day to day support of Flore and Co Langeslag; the kindness of Peter and Jelka Zvonar, Dr Gerhard Verster’s excellent care, the support of the Palliative Response Team and the Home Care nurse and other special friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 15th at 11:00 am at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2547 Hebert Road, West Kelowna, BC. Reception will follow at the Church reception hall and then the interment at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, 1991 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna, BC.

VAN JOHN GEERAERT

February 14, 1955 - April 6, 2011 It is with great sadness that the family of Van Geeraert announces his sudden passing. He was born in Calgary, Alberta and raised along the rivers and valleys around Terrace, British Columbia. Lovingly raised his children in Nelson; BC His free spirit carried him around the world; he worked in Mouse Port Louisiana as a commercial diver, in Papua New Guinea building homes for CUSO, as a wrangler in Australia, a carpenter in Nelson and Port of Spain. Van was a very special, dynamic man, his time has touched many people around the world with his pure sense of strength and honor. Yes he was a little rough around the edges, but true and sincere in all the deeds he did. As a father/ son/ brother/ uncle/ friend you could always count on him to standby by you through thick and thin. His love was building specialty homes; he was quite often heard saying “the problem with square box houses is they’ve got no damn character”! He will be sorrowfully missed by his wife Dianne, children; Jesse, August, Karter, Lenora, Theron; three step-children, Tricia, Russell, Shannon. Mother Lenora, father August; brother Graham (Charlotte), sisters, Carol (Keith), Ora Lynne, Shireen (Roy), Cindy (Trevor); many neices and nephews, along with 2 greatnieces, and one great nephew. Van was predeceased by brother Ross, and sister Claire. Van was always about helping children and known to volunteer at youth centres. Because of this his family are asking that in lieu of flowers a donation to the “the Friends of Soma Society” Soma is a small town on the north east coast of Japan much like Terrace. This will greatly help the children displaced by the recent tsunami and earthquake in Japan. Donations can be sent to the Royal Bank in Terrace. Service will be held at Thompson Funeral Service Ltd, Nelson, BC April 17th, 2011 at 2pm.

In search of volunteers: passion action, impact Volunteers give their time, skills, and energy to all kinds of causes all year round. To thank them and increase the public’s awareness of their contribution, National Volunteer Week will be held from April 10 to 16, 2011, and will focus on the theme “Volunteers: passion, action, impact”. It is hard to imagine life in our communities without the efforts of the 12.5 million volunteers across Canada

who give their time so generously to any number of causes. Their work benefits community services, shelters, hospitals, sports teams, political movements, volunteer fire services, and the environment, to name just a few. Whatever role they choose to play, they are pillars in their communities, important agents for social change. They are citizens who contribute to the wellbeing of the local population.

Thank you for ‘giving hope today’ in your community for 92 years and counting!

Thank you volunteers for your dependability, compassion & generosity.

“The commitment to becoming the best midsized city is evident in how they have invested, not only in diligently sourcing and funding a comprehensive leadership development program, but also in the leadership team’s engagement in the process,” said Marty Playford chairman of the Prism Awards. The city’s organizational structure was changed in 2009 to ensure city projects and initiatives received input from relevant municipal departments. In this way, creating a new park isn’t only a Parks Services project— it might involve financial services, environmental services and infrastructure planning services. “When we reorganized our corporate structure, we knew staff would need some help getting used to a new way of doing things,” said Mattiussi. “Executive coaching has helped us communicate better, improved problem-solving skills and generally made us more collaborative than we were in the past.” Coaching is offered one-on-one or in a number of peer group settings and workshops. “With the help of Gil Davidson, of Advantage Management Consulting in Kelowna, we developed a coaching program that helps managers interact better to produce the flexibility and responsiveness our citizens want,” said Macklem.
