here are still people who don’t realize that very often the water rushing by in an upland stream or lapping the shore of a fishing lake is the same water that comes out of their tap into a glass for drinking. Certainly the renters who piled 12 truckloads of horse manure within a few metres of Mission Creek last winter either didn’t know or didn’t care. Staff from the Black Mountain Irrigation District had to move in with a backhoe to load up the steaming mass of ecoli-laden excrement and remove it before spring brought millions of gallons of snowmelt running off high elevations, raising the level of Mission Creek and washing those piles into the roiling water—just above the BMID intake. “We treat the water, but the higher the loading (of contaminants) the more risk there is of challenging our disinfection,” explains Bob Hrasko, manager of BMID. “Most people are responsible along Mission Creek, but any activity near the creek is of concern to us, and the more activities, the more we’re concerned,” he says.

CLOSE-UP

The challenges to protect our water sources from A1 What Hrasko would like to see are wider buffer zones along the creek— particularly above domestic water intakes and around reservoir lakes. Mission Creek is the largest single tributary to Okanagan Lake, itself a reservoir lake with numerous domestic water intakes serving thousands of valley residents. On private land, Hrasko says the regional district has good land use controls on corridor buffers along the creek, but there is no such control on Crown-owned land. Aquatic biologist Heather Larratt monitors water quality in the watersheds of a number of local water utilities, including BMID. Larratt did a North American literature review last year that showed an 85-metre buffer zone around storage reservoirs and transmission creeks is considered to be the standard today for optimum source water protection. Ideally, the buffer zone would be a no build, no disturb and no machine zone. That’s not an exclusionary buffer, but one within which activities must be managed to protect water quality, notes Hrasko. For instance, rather than no logging within that space, there should be better canopy management and removal of stems within that zone. Rather than no trail construction, they should be built away from the water’s edge and with

care and sensitivity for water quality downstream, he explains. It’s important to manage nutrients and waste, including nitrogen and phosphorus, so agricultural concerns such as growing crops and raising animals are of concern. Mission Creek is one of the largest intakes for the City of Kelowna in the long-term, so riparian protection zones in the upper watershed are key to future water quality. “Such a buffer is a broad scale solution to many watershed problems,” Hrasko says. Currently, under the Forest and Range Practices Act, in the forest planning and practices regulation, buffer zones requirements vary. Solvej Patschke, source water protection hydrologist with the B.C. Forest, Land and Natural Resource Operations Ministry, says stream riparian management areas are divided into classes by stream width, but the management area can vary from 20 metres to 100 metres, while the reserve area within it can vary from none to 50 metres—depending on the site and activity. That applies to forestry activities, but there is a different regulation for range use, based on objectives for water quality. Mining setbacks come under different legislation, and best management practices are being developed for recreational trails. Patschke says it would be difficult to apply a

blanket 85-metre riparian reserve over an entire watershed, saying to have site specific flexibility would be better. Creation of a new reserve also wouldn’t impact existing activities in riparian areas. The FLNRO ministry is currently putting together legislation that would gather bits of regulation from a number of different legislative acts together in a new one governing resource roads in the province. The Natural Resource Road Act proposal has been criticized by water utilities for not mentioning the importance of considering source water protection plans in designing and locating such roads. However, Patschke says the act is still in the early stages of development, and the goal is for it to reflect the riparian values already contained in the FRPA. “The intent is for roads to be managed to mitigate unacceptable environmental impacts ranging from geophysical (siltation of streams, landslides, loss of productive land) to biophysical (invasive plants, fish passage, species at risk and ungulate winter range),” she explains. The Water Supply Association of B.C. has endorsed the proposal to create a default 85-metre vegetated protection zone around reservoir lakes and their transmission creeks, and has also responded to the proposed new resource road legislation. Larratt admits that

Larratt says forestry is a major player in the watershed, as is mining, but the roads built to access such resources also open up access to recreation. However, she says it’s encouraging that users having fun in our watersheds are being more conscientious than they used to be. “It’s a community trust. We all have to share the watershed.” The Okanagan is the third-largest urban area in the province, after Van-

waterfront is attractive for recreation, particularly in a dry landscape such as the Okanagan, but she says it’s important to spend the effort, time and money to protect such areas “or, we’ll spend a lot more for treatment of drinking water.” “Incremental damage is still damage,” she notes. Larratt has done considerable work tracing creek plumes in Okanagan Lake, where streams carry water from high elevations through the watershed and into the big lake. It’s clear that whatever activities are happening in the watershed and how they are managed, impacts Okanagan Lake

couver and Victoria, both of which have protected watersheds where virtually no human activity is permitted. On the other hand, the Okanagan basin’s watershed is multi-use, with everything from ranging cattle to forestry, outdoor recreation to mining taking place. As a result, the provincial health ministry requires that water utilities conduct an assessment of their water sources to identify potential threats and risks to water quality. Mike Adams is environmental health team leader for this area for Interior Health. He says it’s only one of many areas of

potential risk, but water suppliers should develop a plan to address the risks outlined in the assessment, then bring the stakeholders together to discuss the issues and resolve them. Although some suppliers complain they are concerned about activities in their watersheds, yet their hands are tied when it comes to having the authority to deal with those issues, Adams says all the stakeholders have a responsibility to operate in such a way that they reduce any risk to water supplies.

Crown land access balanced against water quality Protect from A3 Having assessments done and preparing a plan to deal with the issues identified is only part of a multi-barrier approach to protection of drinking water, he notes. Most important is treatment of water. “That far outweighs protection at the source or in the distribution system,” comments Adams. As well, he says chlorination is ineffective against cryptosporidium so filtration or treatment with ultra-violet light are also needed. If the latter treatment is chosen over filtration, then all organics must be first removed because clear water is needed for UV to be effective. However, utilities say filtration would have a hefty price tag that would necessitate charging residents considerably more for water, whether it’s for drinking or irrigating. To date, source assessments have been completed by the District of Lake Country, South East Kelowna Irrigation District, Glenmore Ellison Improvement District, City of Kelowna, West Kelowna and Peachland. In each, some common risks have been identified, including: • range use and the potential for contamination of water by cattle • logging and the potential for sedimentation of creeks

• resource roads and their runoff and the watershed access they provide ; • the Mountain Pine Beetle leaving dead timber and its risk of wildfire; • mining and aggregate extraction and the potential for sedimentation • outdoor recreational use and backcountry sanitation as well as creation of trails • bacteriological contamination from wildlife. A couple of the assessment reports expressed concern about increasing use of unused backcountry roads—or off actual roads—by offroad vehicles and the increased sediment loading this is causing in nearby bodies of water. Also identified in some of the assessments were the risk of gas or oil spills from boat motors, sewage leaching or spilling from boats or lakeshore cabins and dumping of garbage in the watershed. On Okanagan Lake, storm water outfalls were also listed as a concern,

Some of the recommendations—other than better management of the risks listed above—included: • that human and livestock access should be eliminated from the lower watershed • that there be more enforcement • that utilities be referred on permit applications for watershed use • that a permit program should be created for recreational access • that cattle be fenced out of riparian areas and range riders hired • that culverts be maintained and road runoff directed away from streams • that recreational users be better educated, perhaps with a brochure

• that the province pass OHV licensing legislation to facilitate enforcement • that an Okanagan Lake protection bylaw be created. The Okanagan Water Stewardship Council, the technical advisory council to the valley-wide Okanagan Basin Water Board, is currently preparing a primer on Source Water Protection in the Okanagan for the OBWB. It will include a series of recommendations for better protection for domestic water supplies at their source and then it will be up to the valley’s politicians to decide how they deal with the issue and how they perceive public concerns about water safety. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Collett Manor put to public scrutiny Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A facility aimed at providing short-term accommodation for patients needing services at Kelowna General Hospital moved one step closer to reality after first being proposed seven years ago. Collett Manor, a 38unit development that would incorporate the existing 1913 Collett House as well as a mix of health-related ancillary services, residential and office space is being proposed for the corner of Pandosy Street and Glenwood Avenue, kitty-cor-

ner to KGH. Described as a “wellness centre� similar to facilities currently located near larger centre hospitals such as Vancouver General Hospital and the famed Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Collett Manor needs to be located in the city’s new hospital district and that required a change in the designation of the land it would sit on in the city’s Official Community Plan. That change was approved Tuesday night but a development permit setting out details of the how the property will be developed still needs to be

applied for and approved by council. But while the land use designation was approved by council, its members heard loud and clear from unhappy residents of the area for nearly 2 1/2 hours during the public hearing about concerns with traffic and parking problems in the area around the hospital. In the end, council felt the site should be added to the nearby hospital district in order to facilitate the project. The woman behind the proposal, Alana Marrington, said she gathered more than 1,100 letters of

support from people living in the area, people who work at the hospital and others across the city. Marrington said she has wanted a facility that would provide short and long-term accommodation for people needing to use the hospital ever since she became aware of the need for it when her own mother was sick several years ago. In order to get the required change to the land use designation to a public hearing, Marrington agreed that at least three of the units in the new building will be available for short-tem stays at a rental rate comparable to that charged by the nearby Cancer Lodge. During the public hearing, she said that number could be increased if she can find a non-profit group to partner with. “But without (the land use designation change)

we cannot approach a non-profit group,� she told council. Marrington set about buying the properties needed for the project nine years ago and first applied to the city for approval in 2004. But while the city’s planing department originally agreed to support the concept seven years ago, the project has been stalled ever since. At the public hearing, more than a dozen residents spoke in favour and against the project, with most agreeing such a facility is needed here. But the opponents said they were concerned about increased traffic and parking problems in their area, problems they feel will be exacerbated by the addition of the development. “We are being treated like second-class citizens but we are paying first-class taxes,� said one resident, Paul Hesketh.

He said it will add more multi-family units to an area that is already struggling with increased traffic and parking problems because of the expansion of KGH.

During the public hearing, the agent for the applicant told council, the proposed site is just 15 metres from the boundary of the city’s new hospital district zone, the area where most agree the facility should be located. The property backs on the site of the new clinical support building for KGH, which is located across Pandosy from the new KGH tower that is currently under constriction. The clinical support building is in the hospital district zone area. Coun. Andre Blanleil, one of three holdovers from the last council, said he disagreed with city staff’s “arbitrary� boundary line for the hospital district at Royal Avenue, feeling instead it should have been two blocks to the north at Glenwood Avenue. While council unanimously approved the change in land use designation, a few of the councillors, including Coun. Mohini Singh said they want to see more units designated for short-term accommodation for hospital patients. “Without that, this is just a commercial development,� she said.

Three committees face extinction by Kelowna council Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna city council will be asked to officially axe its Advisory Planning Commission, the housing committee and the women and community advisory committee on Monday. Just over a month after Mayor Walter Gray, in his inaugural speech, announced all 14 city committees would be reviewed to determine their usefulness, city staff have recommended the three committees be cut and new terms of reference be established for the rest. There is currently as review of the city’s public art policy underway so the future of that committee will be determined later. “Council has said it wants committees that have a clear purpose and goals,” said deputy city clerk Karen Needham. “With that in mind, staff have recommended changes to some committees to improve effectiveness, inclusiveness or focus.” She said the review of council committees was undertaken at the request of the new city council to assess and update their objectives. The committees are made up of volunteers from the community who are appointed by council. Last month, the new council waived the requirement that new development proposals be forwarded to the APC. Needham said council requested a stronger governance model to ensure committees are focused on, and responsive to, council direction. “That doesn’t mean the work previously done by these committees stops, it means the work will be carried on in a different way,” she said. “The work done by citizens who volunteer to participate on these committees is vital to the process and we want to make sure their time and efforts are as effective as can be.” City staff want council to meet as a committee-ofthe-whole as soon as possible to discuss how best to continue the work done by the committees and how to integrate issues common to the community, such as health, safety and quality of life issues, including the best way to engage citizens on these issues, added Needham. She said that could include the use of task forces, and the use of social media to gather pub-

lic input. Gray has said he felt the APC could be scrapped to save time and money for both the city and developers, saying it duplicated the process for gathering public input as the public can comment on development proposals at council meetings prior to being forwarded to a public hearing where again further comment can be made. The staff report says the APC should be replaced with a more streamlined process that includes expanding pub-

lic input opportunities at an earlier stage on a variety of development applications, increasing the time residents associations have to make presentations at public hearings and the possibility of creating an internal design review panel. The recommendation to kill the housing committee was made because staff felt that committee had completed its work through its extensive contribution to crafting the city’s recently adopted housing strategy. The women and com-

munity advisory committee, initiated by Gray’s predecessor Sharon Shepherd, was considered a committee whose issues are covered by other committees and city work. The staff report, to be discussed by council at its regular meeting on Monday, recommends deferring consideration of the public art committee’s future pending completion of public art review. All city committees report to council annually on their progress and council can establish committees and update terms of refer-

ith plunging winter temperatures finally finding us this week, my thoughts are turning to snowy adventures and activities, although I have quite enjoyed our unseasonably warm winter so far. Snow at higher elevations, where we can go to ski, snowshoe or toboggan, is fine, but in the bottom of the valley, I’m quite happy to see the roads clear of the white stuff. The Kelowna Nordic Ski Club is holding a Union Cycle & Ski Scavenger Hunt beginning at 10 a.m. from the main cabin and a beginner/intermediate snowshoe trip to Nordic Hilton at the same time and place. Saturday, Jan. 21, there’ll be a Thunder Mountain intermediate showshoe trip beginning at 9 a.m. Meet at the Apple Bowl. An all-day showshoe trip on some of the outer trails is planned for Sunday, Jan. 29, with a ski tour beginning at Highway 33, Thunder Mountain parking lot on new trails to the Meadow Cabin. Call Hugh

at 250-763-5214 for more information. For more details of upcoming events and ski conditions, go to the website kelownanordic.com. Judie Laurie Bowen, Steeves of Selah Outdoors Explorations, reminds me that the seventh annual White Rabbit Showshoe Race is coming up Saturday, Jan. 28, at Crystal Mountain Resort. This year, they’re planning a showshoe festival to go along with the popular race—an afternoon of family-friendly free, or very-affordable, fun. For example there’ll be free showshoe races for youngsters nine and under, a family snowshoe scavenger hunt, a bonfire cookout and more. The top three finishers in the race will receive beautiful pewter snowshoe medals, and there are other great prizes to be won as well. It’s a 10-kilometre race and a five-kilometre race. Details are posted on the website www.crystalresort.com At Telemark Cross Country ski trails, the 26th annual Kelowna Apple Loppet is set for Saturday,

Mother Nature makes ice wine harvest more ‘precious’ Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Local chef Darren Mitchell was among dozens of Okanagan residents who bundled up before dawn broke Thursday morning, and headed to area vineyards for a longawaited sub-zero harvest. “It’s a once in a year opportunity,” Mitchell said hours after leaving Tantalus winery’s ice wine harvest, gearing up for a full night of work at Bernard Avenue’s Rotten Grape. “It’s only a couple hours. And in the summer I work on an organic farm so, for me, this kind of thing is 100 per cent my passion.” While not everybody would find loading up baskets with frozen berries in the dead of night

a thrill, those who have an active role in the community’s literal food chain have a different view. “Knowing how your food is grown and how much work is put into it, you appreciate 10 times more than if you just get it at your back door,” Mitchell said. This year, perhaps more than any previous, that kind of appreciation for the work put into a simple grape should be quite pronounced. As Tantalus’s general manager Jane Hatch explained, there has been an abundance of challenges to this year’s growing season. “We had a smaller crop this year because of the shorter growing season, so we didn’t have the yield off the vines we had last year,” she said.

Then there was a troublesome spring, a hail storm in August and finally, the slow onset of subzero temperatures. “The challenge with that is the longer the fruit stays out on the vine, the more chances there are for birds to get it,” she said, adding they do net their ice wine vines for a layer of protection. “Also, the longer we wait, the fruit is more desiccated.” Although an aging, shrivelled grape won’t impact the taste, it does limit its yield. “It makes it more precious. Anytime you have a lower volume, you have less to sell to customers,” she said, noting that combination would present a bigger challenge to those who produce larger quantities. That said, it’s a com-

petitive business and pleasing the customer is what earns a winery credibility. “This is where the true skill of the viticulturist and winemaker has to come to the forefront,” she said. “And, from a sale’s perspective, the economy isn’t so bad that nobody is selling wine. But the relationship between the price of wine and quality and volume is very important. You have to have your ducks lined up and sell a high quality product at a reasonable price.” Tantalus wasn’t the only winery that called pickers to the fields for the precious liquid Thursday. Numerous wineries made the call, and for some it was the second time this season. In November, Summerhill had harvesters in

Shelter braces for winter chill Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

As the temperature plummets in the Central Okanagan, places offering a warm, indoor bed for the night in Kelowna are getting busier. While the local organizations that provide those beds have not had to invoke their cold weather protocol yet because not all available spaces have been filled, organizations like Inn From The Cold are seeing their numbers increase. Tara Tschritter, Inn From The Cold’s co-ordinator, said Wednesday night the shelter had 33 people, three of whom had dogs with them, just short of the 35-person capacity. In January, the organization normally averages about 28 people per night. “We did see a bit of a drop in our numbers in November,” said Tschritter, noting the milder than usual start to the winter likely contributed to that. “But we were up in December.” With 2012 kicking off with sub-zero degree temperatures at night, the recent snowfall and the

predictions of more cold weather at night on the way, as well as a thermometer that has struggled to climb above 0 C during the day lately, expectations are the number of people seeking shelter from the cold will increase. Tschritter said while some homeless people stay outside as long as possible, when it gets as cold as it has been on recent nights, even many of the diehards are forced to go inside. The majority of shelter beds in Kelowna are provided by the Gospel Mission downtown, which provides nightly accommodation for men and women; NOW Canada’s Alexandra Gardiner House in the Mission, which provides beds for women and their children; and Inn From The Cold on Sutherland Avenue, which accepts both men and women, and their pets. When the temperature drops to dangerously cold levels, all local organizations that provide beds contact one another to coordinate shelter spaces. When all are occupied, additional beds are opened

up using mats on floors in other locations to meet the need. Tschritter said the cold weather protocol has not been initiated so far this winter, mainly because of the recent increase in the number of beds available at the Gospel Mission. While Inn From The Cold has nine staff members who man shifts at the shelter during the night, it relies heavily on its army of volunteers and the donations it receives from the public. In addition to one staff member on during each nightly shift, six volun-

teers are required to help. Without the volunteers, the shelter cannot open. Inn From The Cold also offers a “free store” to its guests, somewhere they can find donated clothing to help them keep warm when they are outside. Tschritter said there is currently a need for items such as large men’s winter jackets, as well as warm socks, thermal underwear, hats and gloves for both men and women.

to the Nov. 5 harvest in 2003. They were waiting for temperatures to plunge again for a secondary harvest, and it came later than usual. This year, 26 win-

eries have said they will be picking frozen grapes for an expected 875 tons, the most ever projected for ice wine in this province.

One bad experience is one too many at hospital To the editor: My wife has had many severe health issues over the past three years including overcoming cancer. She has ended up in Kelowna General Hospital more times than I would have liked. She has received excellent care, with compassion, 99 per cent of the time. The doctors and nursing staff have been great as a rule, until this past week. My wife was admitted again with an infection and a fever. Because of her immune system being so low due to her previous many chemo treatments, our doctor told me to get her to Emergency. She was treated well in Emergency from Sunday to Tuesday midnight when she was moved to a semi-private room on 4A. I went to see her Wednesday morning and was happy that she was out of Emergency even though she was treated well there—Emergency was and is always busy and noisy. Then on Wednesday evening everything changed. Our daughter and son are

Pangs of guilt as sharp as its graphite tip have had a very profound impact on my decision making, which is what makes news that others, such as the celebrity chef and my favourite ’90s icon, persist in the behaviour, so confounding. Granted, they likely have a different set of emotional deficits than I do, but their stories are footnotes in what seems to be a growing trend. Just as Robin Hood snaffled goods from the rich to offset the shortcom-

(Strange related fact: Cheese and razors are among the top stolen items, according to a study by the Centre for Retail Research.) Trouble is, shifty behaviour is taking company profits down another notch which is, quite frankly, less than ideal for the rest of us who are waiting for a robust financial system to raise us to the next level or our personal economic development. For some concrete numbers on how shoplifting is impacting one and all, the Centre’s study reported shoplifting and employee theft cost North American businesses more than $45 billion USD in 2011—a rise of six per cent from last year.

Comments from the Web on Croc Talk To the editor: Re: Croc Talk needs $4,000 or animals could be euthanized, Thanks Amy, for your exceptionally helpful comment. (Comments from the Web on Croc Talk, Jan. 6 Capital News.) We just raised $1,900 for Croc Talk and I can tell you, Doug was extremely grateful to receive the help. I don’t think its particularly awful for someone to buy themselves a coffee, his truck is sponsored by Toyota (they are nice people) and I’m pretty sure every person in Kelowna has a cell phone, especially if they are trying to run a business. (Doug has a mural painting business as an income). I have zero respect for people who bad mouth people they don’t know. Karma will bite you in the ass. Rob Mason-Brown, Kelowna

t r t

To the editor: Amy, I don’t know who you think you are, but your attitude is terrible. Why would you go out of your way to try to discredit the good hearted people who work day and night to selflessly care for their animals? Is there a limit on how much help the animals can receive? Is one time all the help you think they deserve? Then I truly question how much you care. Give away your cell phone. Stop driving your car. Never purchase a drink when you are out and about. How dare you be so judgmental.

COMMENTS FROM kelownacapnews.com

Get off your high horse and humble yourself enough to help. Rob is right, karma will bite you in the ass. Huge kudos to all those people who found it in their hearts to give whatever they could to help another person, and help the animals who add so much interest and education to their community. Shannon Moore To the editor: I don’t exactly understand how someone can accuse a person like Doug Illman so wrongly. Doug is more than appreciative when the community decides to lend a hand in finances and keeping the animals safe from harm. Your accusations of “something sketchy” is disgustingly wrong and blatantly rude. Could I just inform you that almost everyone has a cell phone of some sort and it is more than logical that he has an iPhone. Maybe you should stop paying attention to what other people have or don’t have, you must have something more important to do. Croc Talk deserves every last penny that people will fund raise for them and I hope that we are able to keep it up and running. Not only is this animal rescue center fun and educational for people of all ages but most importantly it is helping to save these animals that can’t do it themselves.

I very much understand why Doug doesn’t want to leave Kelowna and I am sure that hundreds of people don’t want them to leave either. Croc Talk has provided so much entertainment for so many people over the years. It would be a huge shame to see them leave or shut down. Next time you have something to say, you should make sure that you have your facts straight and not just a “sketchy feeling” about why someone has an iPhone or a very generously donated company vehicle. Mia Breanne Shiosaki, Kelowna To the editor: Frankly speaking it would be a waste of taxpayer money for this effort since it appears to me that essentially the community is divided on what a single person is or is not doing without real concern for the animals care. Karma be damned. There are several instances very close to this situation which have ended badly for the communities involved. Independent zoo status, solely supported by your taxpayer dollars, will always be in need of more money to support animals that are not indigenous and have no business being held outside of their natural environment. On the surface it all seems to be a noble cause, however practical it is not. Denise Walker For more comments see Croc Talk Needs $4,000 or Animals could be Euthanized on www.kelownacapnews.com

One bad caretaker is the one who is remembered adults (over 40 years of age) and we were not able to visit before 8 p.m. when visiting hours are usually over. We followed the rules by stopping at the security desk, registering and showing ID and security phoning the nursing station asking if we could come up and were told that we could. Upon arriving on 4A we went to my wife’s bed and were told that we should not be there in no uncertain terms, in a very rude manner and harsh voice by a nurse. After visiting for a few

minutes, she came in and started to take vitals of my wife. My wife has been bedridden for months and her body is sore, but the nurse did not pay attention to her moans and groans and just continued very roughly. Then she wanted to ask my wife a number of questions to which my wife did not know the answers as she has severe dementia. She continued and my wife became agitated and told her to leave her alone. We tried to calm her down and Nurse Ratchet just continued. Finally she said she would write that

my wife was not co-operating and asked to talk to me in the hall. Here in the hall she said to me: “We note that she is not to be revived, so why are we doing all these tests?” My reply was: “Because she is a human being.” She kept repeating herself: “Why are we doing this as we are just agitating her?” My reply: “Because it is your job and in the past three years you are the only one that has agitated her like this.” That is when the nurse suggested that we leave. That is when I lost it

and asked, “Are you kicking us out?” “Yes,” she replied. And I lit into her. She said that she was going to get the charge nurse. Because of this attitude I told the charge nurse that I did not want to have this nurse looking after my wife. We spent a little time discussing what happened and she apologized for the nurse’s attitude and told us to stay as long as we needed. The three of us are adults, followed the rules of the hospital, were not noisy and were there to comfort a loved one who was sick and in pain. Here

we run into someone on a power trip with an attitude which throws a bad light on the nursing profession. If she does not like the work and has that kind of attitude, may I suggest another vocation. Again, we have had mostly positive experiences with KGH staff, especially when you consider how busy they always are. To the rest of the KGH staff, please have a Happy New Year and all the best from here on in. Ozzie and Betty Ziesmann, children and grandchildren, Kelowna

Trustees home in on social media policy for students Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A policy designed to prevent incidents like the Lower Mainland stabbing hoax which saw Vancouver students whip their parents into a frenzy through social media over a false accusation is in the works for Kelowna. Central Okanagan

school trustees were told during Wednesday evening’s school board meeting that a policy around cellphone use already exists in the district and that a new social media policy has been drafted and sent to the district’s parents and teachers for input. Between the two policies, there is a clear set of

parameters outlining how students can use technology during a lock-down. Superintendent Hugh Gloster said the entire critical incident response plan is something school districts need to stay on top of in an era of everadapting communication tools. Gloster admitted he’s already seen a conflict

In the Vancouver incident, a student at Sir Charles Tupper High School in East Vancouver falsely claimed to have been slashed at school, triggering a lock-down. Students within the school then went online and sent out messages indicating what was happening. “If someone is tweeting out what’s happening in their classroom, or that they hear noises, that could obviously compromise security,

and it’s a concern for police officers,” Kurt Heinrich, a spokesman for the Vancouver school board, said in an interview with the Globe and Mail this week. The Vancouver school board is reviewing its electronic media poli-

cies, though the student in question later recanted and admitted the wounds were self-inflicted. School trustees in the Central Okanagan have asked for a copy of the new social media policy. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Christmas as the community responded to a record demand at the Kelowna Community Food Bank. “This year over 1,250 households registered to receive a Christmas hamper, the highest number in our 28 year history,” said Vonnie Lavers, food bank executive director. “Without communitywide support, we would not have been able to help so many individuals and families.” More than 60 volunteers helped distributed $300,000 worth of food between Dec. 21 and 23. The Kelowna Food Bank’s annual Spirit of Giving campaign provides low-income individuals and families with Christmas hampers and stocks their shelves for the winter. “We set a goal to raise $400,000 in food and funds Christmas takes a huge toll on our inventory and donations virtually cease through February, so it is very important that we reach our goals.” Lavers says that the food bank came very close to hitting this year’s targets. “Food and toy donations were up over last year but we fell short of our overall goal,” she said. “There’s money still to come in from organizations like the Trinity Baptist Church and final receipting yet to be done, so I am optimistic that we will close the gap in the next weeks.”

It’s tough for a teen to save money S

ix months ago, I never would have imagined that spending $1.74 on a coffee could be so painful. But knowing that coffee takes nearly 20 per cent of my spending money for that week, my indisposition feels a little more appropriate. Over the past several months, my definition of a significant purchase has shifted from items like my longboard, for which I saved up for several months, to anything that costs more than a couple dollars. This isn’t because it takes me several months to earn a couple dollars, but because I am going to France. I will be arriving in

CONNECTING WITH YOUTH

Amber Krogel Paris in a matter of weeks, and the months I have spent saving for my trip will finally generate a tangible result (other than not being able to afford coconut syrup for my lattes). Initially, my thinking was that after my trip, my old spending habits would return. But I’ve slowly realized that the habits my trip has forced me to adopt should actually become the norm for how I manage my money. There are always expenses that life requires me to impart money on— such as paying for university or putting gas in the car.These seem to be increasing as I get older. Similarly to when your mom stops picking out your outfits for school and you are actually expected to know how to dress yourself (thankfully I haven’t quite reached that stage yet), there are an ever-growing number of things in life that you are expected to pay for yourself. Adjusting to this reality is difficult, because it means giving up certain luxuries. If you’re used to leaving campus every day and buying pizza for lunch, using the same money to cover car payments won’t

be easy. Then there’s the nagging sense of guilt that you should be putting money towards long-term savings, something even more difficult to do because you may not see it again for 30 years. However, when you are reacquainted with it, it’s likely to be accompanied by a substantial amount of interest, and that’s why you do it. At age16, if you start saving $100 each month and invest it well, compound interest could turn that into over $25,000 by the time you are 30. Sacrificing a few trips to Little Caesar’s may not be such a ridiculous idea after all. But like many things, it’s easier said than done. I have strategically placed pictures of France throughout my belongings in an attempt to remind myself why I am forgoing coconut syrup, but I still spend more than I should in coffee shops. Thankfully, my parents have instilled in me better financial habits than I could produce on my own, and I am just weeks away from experiencing the results of that. Whether the payoff comes when you’re buying university textbooks or putting a down payment on a house, learning to manage your money well can only be beneficial for you. Amber Krogel is a Grade 12 student at Kelowna Christian School. AmberSKrogel@gmail.com

OC nursing grads ready for workforce There’s a good chance that practical nurses graduating from Okanagan College this weekend will be on the job within a month—that is unless they’ve already found work in their field. The 77 practical nursing graduates will be among 340 students who will receive credentials at Okanagan College’s annual Winter Convocation in Kelowna on Saturday. Of the 77 nursing students, 37 finished their program in December —another 40 completed their studies in August and many have already found jobs. According to figures released Jan. 6 from the B.C. Ministry of Advanced Education’s Student Outcomes Survey, even in today’s economy 58 per cent of those who graduated from the college’s practical nursing program between

2009-2011 landed jobs in their field in less than one month. Another 24 per cent obtained jobs within two months of graduation. Practical Nursing chair Norma Stubbert said the positive employment rate likely also reflects the depth and breadth of the training. “Our last 15 classes have experienced a 100 per cent pass rate on the national exam,� said Stubbert. “These figures speak not only to the excellence in program delivery and instruction, but also to the support offered to students.� She also gave credit to experts in the field who take time to work with the students. “These community partners play a significant role in ensuring our graduates have a solid foundation for their practice by providing excellent learning opportunities.�

This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.” By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops

who have tried LeafSource is they just plain feel better, have more energy and less pain. We’re so confident, we guarantee LeafSource 100%! That alone should be enough to try this incredible product.”

To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take for granted, until it’s gone! Ian adds, “I often recommend that LeafSource be taken with other natural joint products in order to help them work better and provide even faster relief.

through the aging process. With joint inflammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-inflammatory drugs that cause more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-inflammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function.

Hiawatha Park proposal a concern for area residents W Charlie Hodge en other city committees. I can save them all some time. Leave them as is. The elimination of any of the committees would be an error—especially the APC, Women’s and Community Committee, Accessibility Committee, Housing Committee and several others. If council wants to cut “some of the costs” as has been suggested, the only real costs with committees are due to the insistence of having a staff liaisons in addition to the official staff person taking minutes. There is really no need for a staff liaison at the board if there is a council rep already. Many council’s have committees with council members assigned as part of their job, and no staff liaison is needed. I never did understand why that apparent need exists. The APC and other committees provide a vital link and insight to residents in our community and are well worth the effort. Eliminating such committees simply eliminates the public voice from being heard, a public voice belonging to knowledgeable people with genuine concern for their community. There is no need to cut such committees. Hopefully, council will stand firm with the status quo on this issue. ••• So, the line-up just continues to improve for the Sean Connor fundraiser early next month, as my lifetime buddy Deb Stone and her amazing band have joined the list. Stone will certainly get the crowd clapping and dancing at the worth-

Wedding photo alert The Okanagan Heritage Museum has put out a call to the public for wedding pictures to use for an upcoming exhibit—any pictures that you or your friends and family may have of your wedding ceremony, the reception, the dress, the bridesmaids’ dresses. Any photo that clearly shows a wedding is taking place will be put on display for all to see. To participate, email a high resolution jpeg of the photos you would like to share to events@kelownamuseums.ca with the subject heading: Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Deadline for photo submission is Feb. 27.

while event. Sherman Doucette and a plethora of other talented musicians will join Stone on the musical schedule. It should be a tremendous evening of music. Connor is a highly respected and loved photographer for the Capi-

tal News. He has just returned from two months of specialized proton radiation treatment for a rare form of brain cancer in Loma Linda, Cal. That community is home to one of only two facilities in North America that deal with such cancer.

Connor is thrilled to be home after spending six weeks through Christmas in Loma Linda—far from friends and loved ones. The trip was very expensive (more than a photographer’s wage that’s for darn sure), hence the great need for a fundraiser.

The media fraternity may be damn competitive on a daily basis but when ‘one of ours’ takes a tough turn, all the team sweaters come off and we pull together. However, Connor needs our whole community’s help as well. It will be a tremendous night of music with

a fundraiser of artwork and photographs on sale as well. Please take in the evening and meet Sean. The event runs from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb.2, at the Kelowna Community Theatre. See you there. hodgepodge2@shaw.ca

ell, it took me nearly two months but I finally dragged my sorry self out of the house and out to a ‘community/political’ event last Monday night. The KLO Residents Association AGM was too much of a temptation not to show up to—and I am glad I did. It was great to see so many friendly faces. Aside from their annual general meeting, the neighbourhood association also had a representative from Westcorp discussing their plans for a hotel/housing complex at the Hiawatha Park area. As well, the agenda also discussed the controversial Cedar Avenue park proposal. Since those were two issues that I was very passionate about during my tenure on council, I decided to check out the meeting. To my pleasurable surprise, former city council cohort Kevin ‘The Kid’ Craig was also there. So we sat together, shared a few chuckles and rolled our eyes a few times. As expected, Westcorp had little to really say and brought no visual plans, claiming that the project is still “being reviewed” by the development group. They anticipate a meeting with council in March or April regarding the development plans. Some 50 residents were on hand and they all made it clear at not being happy with how things had proceeded to this point, and that they will be paying attention as the project unfolds. The night had an interesting twist when I managed to encourage Kevin to accept a nomination to sit on the association’s board. Go get ‘em Kev. •••* I read earlier this week that city council and Mayor Walter Gray are still deciding the fate of the Advisory Planning Commission along with a doz-

“I was on the bus and the bus driver turned the light out and you could just see (the glow) from the iPhones. Everybody is on their phones texting each other, but they’re afraid to just stop and talk in the street.” Zamani calls himself a citizen of the world. He lived in France, hit all the big Canadian stops— Montreal, Vancouver, Halifax—and is now enjoying the laid-back pace of life in the Okanagan. He grew up around paintings with sacred geometry and says the balance and serenity the shapes put forth intrigues him beyond the typical paintings of this lovely

landscape and our everyday reality. “Sacred geometry is the art of beauty, balance and being centred,” said Zamani. “For a long time this art has been a passion of mine and I constantly sketch many designs in my sketchbooks. Out of the many designs, I then choose one to create on a canvas.” The show includes five three-foot by threefoot paintings and one master painting that is four-foot by four-foot. Zamani said he uses the images in his own meditation practice, as they are intended to relax one; and said the process of painting them is relaxing, to a degree. He did need to paint morning and night and sacrifice a good deal of time over Christmas to make this exhibition happen, and wants to have 11 paintings, all perfectly balanced in both geometry and colour, before 2014. Though textured, they are less about painting and more about measuring and creating a precise image on which to cast one’s gaze, he explained. The gallery exhibition will include relaxing music to soothe the soul and some 54 quotes to inspire. Kiano Zamani’s work can be seen at www.kianozamani.com. The exhibition opens in the Fina Gallery in the UBCO fine arts building Jan. 16. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

SPORTS ▼ SKI CROSS

Injury puts Serwa’s season on hold Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

After a spectacular start on the 2011-12 World Cup circuit last month with two victories in Italy, the remainder of Kelsey Serwa’s ski cross season is now in question. The 22-year-old from Kelowna suffered a knee injury Wednesday after crashing in the final of a World Cup race in Alpe d’huez, France. Serwa, who finished fourth by default, was transported off the hill by

toboggan after the race and was taken to a local clinic for an examination. The extent of Serwa’s injuries won’t be known until she returns to Canada next week for an MRI. “I made it to the finals today but never crossed the finish line,” Serwa said on Facebook. “I did a flat spin 360 off one of the jumps, unfortunately my knee didn’t survive the crash.” Although there will be no official diagnosis until after the MRI, Serwa has been told by doctors

there may be damage to the ACL, MCL and meniscus. At the very least, Serwa is expected to be sidelined for a few weeks. Serwa, who chose to remain in Europe for the rest of this week to support her teammates, spoke to her mom, Terri Serwa, after the mishap and was upbeat about her misfortune. “Her spirits were pretty good when I talked to Kelsey,” said Terri Serwa. “It’s an inevitable part of the sport. She said if there

was a good time for this to happen, it was this year, with no world championships and no Olympics. She’s always been a cuphalf-full kind of person.” The injury will, in all likelihood, prevent Serwa from defending her X Games title Jan. 29 in Aspen, Colorado. Serwa won the first two races of the World Cup season Dec. 17 and 18 in San Candido, Italy. In the third race, she placed 10th on Jan. 7 in St. Johann, Austria. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Local volleyball star signs with Heat Warren Henderson CAPITAL NEWS

For a time, Kaitlynn Given had aspirations of pursuing an education and university volleyball career south of the border. As it turns out, the 17-year-old from Kelowna discovered the best fit was right here in her own backyard. Given, a dominant outside hitter the past two years with Tony Sodaro’s Kelowna Owls program, has signed on with the UBC Okanagan Heat for the 2011-12 Canada West campaign. “Originally, I wanted to go State side, but the

more I thought about it, the more I realized there was a great opportunity right here,” said Given. “Staying at home to play at that high level, I couldn’t ask for a lot more. It’s what I wanted. “I like Steve Manuel’s coaching style a lot, and I’m familiar with some of the girls on the team from watching them, so it couldn’t be better.” One of the top high school players in the province, Given led the Owls to the 2011 B.C. AAAA championship, and was named the provincial tournament’s most valuable player. Head coach Steve

Manuel expects Given will develop into a solid university player and valuable member of the Heat program for years to come. “She is a dynamic athlete with great movement skills and has a really nice touch on the ball from a passing standpoint,” said Manuel. “I can best describe her movement as fluid, she makes plays appear effortless. Katilynn has developed into a great leader, another attribute that will no doubt serve her well in the future. “We are ecstatic that Kaitlynn has signed with us and to be able to keep the top local talent right

here in the Okanagan.” Along with the recent signing of Handworth’s Emily Oxland, Manuel has secured two of the most sought after high school talents in B.C. With the current Heat squad of 13 players, and no one graduating next season, there won’t be many spots available on the Canada West squad in 2012-13. Still, Manuel looks for Given to earn quality court time as she follows in the footsteps of current Heat power hitters Alex Basso (4th year), Jill Festival (3rd year) and Myrte Schön (3rd year). “She possesses all the

skill sets to make a major contribution to our program in the not too distant future and represents the Heat’s next generation of great outside hitters,” Manuel added. “We will never be able to recruit or include all the local players that we would like to, but Kaitlynn has been a priority for us for some time now.” For Given’s part, the 5-foot-11 power hitter knows there will be a learning curve involved in her evolution as a university player, one that she hopes will be hastened by playing with the likes of Basso, Festival, Schön, and the team’s other vet-

Forty-eight hours after taking one on the chin in Portland, the Kelowna Rockets will take another swing at the Winterhawks. The teams square off for the second time in three days when they meet Friday night at the Rose Garden. On Wednesday, the hometown Winterhawks took round one 4-2 over the Rockets, thanks almost exclusively to special teams. Portland scored twice on the power play and twice more while playing a man short. “Five-on-five, I really like the way we played,” said Rockets coach Ryan Huska, whose club outshot Portland 35-29. “On the power play and killing penalties, not so much. “It was almost as if when we got on the power play, we didn’t have to work, and it cost us two goals. Our penalty kill didn’t step up. We’re going to need to do both of those to be better (Friday).” Wednesday marked the debut of newly acquired forward Brett Lyon, who joined the Rockets earlier in the day in Portland after being dealt by the Moose Jaw Warriors. The 20-year-old Lyon scored his first goal in Kelowna colours and established his physical presence with a fight in the second period. “I thought he played well,” Huska said of Lyon’s effort. “He skated well and worked real hard. (Wednesday) was a real long day for him, so he did well to get here and be ready to play. “We look for him to be good for us for the rest of the season.” As for Friday night’s rematch with the Winterhawks, Huska said it’s an opportunity to make amends for the loss two nights earlier. “They’re a good hockey team and we get another chance to prove ourselves against them.

Warriors name new captain The Westside Warriors have named a homegrown player as their next captain. West Kelowna’s own Max French is set to don the ‘C’, after the team dealt 20-year-old defenceman Izaak Berglund at Tuesday’s BCHL trading deadline. “It’s an honour,” says French of being named captain. “We have a great group of guys here and ra great leadership group, and I think it’s going to be really exciting going for-

ward.” French also paid tribute to the outgoing captain, describing Berglund as “wise” and “a great guy.” However, the 19 yearold French doesn’t plan on changing much in his own style. “I’m just going to keep on doing what I’ve been going all year, which is being vocal, and letting my play on and off the ice show that I’m a leader,” French said. French is in third full season with the Warriors.

Sissons top Rocket in latest rankings Four members of the Kelowna Rockets have rmade the grade in Central Scouting’s latest rankings of the continent’s top draft-eligible players. r Forward Colton Sissons is ranked 14th among North American skaters in advance of the 2012 NHL entry draft. Sissons, the Rockets’ captain, 18, has 21 goals and nine assists in 41 games this season. “He leads our team in fgoals and he’s been a leadrer in other ways for us,” Rockets assistant coach Ryan Cuthbert. “He’s impressed us with his allaround play, and I’m sure fthe scouts see a guy who is a great all-around package.” Rated 46th among North American skaters is Rockets defenceman Damon Severson. Currently sidelined with an upper body injury, Severson has four goals and 20 points in 32 games this season. “Sever is a big guy who can shoot the puck and has good offensive instincts,” said Cuthbert. “If he can be more consistent with his defensive f

play, he’ll continue to improve.” Ranked in the 146th spot is defenceman Colten Martin. The Texasborn Martin, who turns 18 in March, has a goal and eight assists in 39 games. “(Martin) has put himself on the map by being a competitive kid,” Cuthbert said. “He thinks the game well and has good instincts.” The fourth Rockets player ranked is forward Colton Heffley who comes in at 191. The 6-foot-3, 200- pound Heffley has three goals and eight points in 32 games. The mid-term rankings include 210 skaters and 36 goaltenders from the Canadian Hockey League and other leagues across the continent. “He’s a big centre, and there aren’t a ton of those guys around,” Cuthbert said of Heffley. “The scouts probably see a guy who can move pretty well for his size, and he’s good checking centreman who uses his body well.” The 2012 NHL entry draft is set for June 22 and 23 in Pittsburgh.

Injuries sideline four Rockets

f Rocketsfrom A22

What’s nice about back-to-back games is that it eliminates the travel involved and you also have that familiarity with your opponent. After what we did on Wednesday, the guys should feel like they can compete.” Injuries kept four Rockets out of the line-

up Wednesday: F Colton Heffley (back, dayto-day), Damon Severson (upper body, 2 weeks), F Jessey Astles (upper body, 10 days), F Spencer Main (concussion, indefinite). The Rockets road trip continues Saturday in Vancouver against the Giants, and wraps up Sunday in Everett vs. the Silvertips. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

In 2011-12, the 5-foot-10, 177-pound forward has 15 goals and 18 points in 27 games. The Warriors sit 10 points out of a playoff position with 23 games left in the season, but French says he and his mates are determined to push hard for the remainder of the year. French’s tenure as captain will begin on Friday night, when the Warriors host the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Face off at LePage Place is 7 p.m.

WEST KELOWNA’S Max French is the new captain of the Westside Warriors.

Reward put up for copper thieves

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The thieves are at it again. Over the past few weeks, the Central Okanagan has been hit by copper wire theft. The District of West Kelowna, trying to ensure

that they don’t come back to the Westside, is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone responsible for stealing copper wire from local streetlights. Eleven months ago, $20,000 worth of copper wire was removed from lampposts throughout the

district. Affected areas included Westlake Road from Starlight Crescent to Peak Point Drive, Asquith Road and Upper Sundance Drive in Shannon Lake, and Glenrosa Road between Walnut Drive and Glen Abbey Place. Wire was also stolen

from several lampposts in the Diamond View strata development. No further thefts have been reported in West Kelowna. But with copper wire being stolen from the City of Kelowna last weekend, the district is reminding Westside residents to re-

main vigilant because of the cost incurred by the district when such thefts occur. The district also advises the public that Keldon Electric is the company contracted to maintain streetlights in the municipality until Feb. 29. Westcana Electric will

maintain the streetlights after March 1. Both companies use clearly marked vehicles and work predominately during daylight hours. To report any streetlights that need repair, residents should call West Kelowna’s operations department at 778-797-8849.

A heated wax museum war takes shape in Hollywood Hugo Martin CONTRIUBTOR

Los Angeles—Dissing Angelina Jolie normally isn’t the best way to get ahead in this town. But tough times call for tough tactics in the war of the Hollywood wax museums. Madame Tussauds, which considers itself the ne plus ultra of wax artistry—with the $25 tick-

et price to match—is trying to best its cheaper competitor, the Hollywood Wax Museum, with a new marketing blitz stressing the defects in its rival’s paraffin starlets, singers and comics. In a wax version of a cola taste test, Madame Tussauds plans to let visitors decide whose figures most closely resemble their glamorous living counterparts. Madame Tussauds has begun placing a celebrity replica in its lobby alongside a life-size cut-out photo of the same figure

snapped at the Hollywood Wax Museum. First up was Jolie. The message: Our Angie is hot. Theirs is not. Madame Tussauds plans to rotate the figures every few days. It’s also putting up posters in its lobby, citing negative online reviews of the Hollywood Wax Museum next to positive reviews for Madame Tussauds. “I personally think we are better than the Hollywood Wax Museum,” said Colin Thomas,

TRAVEL ▼ WAX MUSEUMS

Visitors to museums can pose for photos with wax figures Wax from A28 fer visitors good value for their money. And while he admits his museum doesn’t have the cachet of his internationally famous rival, he said his wax figures can hold their own. “I’ll compare my Hugh Hefner with their Hugh Hefner any day,” he said, pointing to his museum’s wax depiction of the Playboy founder dressed in a satin bathrobe and stretched out on a bed. The two museums are in the same business but their origins couldn’t be more different. Madame Tussauds is named for the famed French wax artiste who made busts for a show that traveled through Europe in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Those shows included famous figures of the age, including the writer Voltaire, the philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau and Benjamin Franklin. Merlin Entertainments Group, based in England, now owns the Madame Tussauds franchise and operates 13 attractions worldwide, including in London, Berlin and Shanghai. Wax luminaries such as Voltaire and Rousseau have given way to young stars such as Justin Timberlake and Beyonce. Hollywood Wax Museum has more humble roots. Sundher’s grandfather, Spoony Singh, a former saw mill operator and amusement park creator from Canada, opened his attraction with an emphasis on celebrity rather than wax artistry. Sundher and his three uncles now operate the museum, several other attractions and two local storage facilities. He portrays the battle of the Hollywood Boulevard wax museums as a “current-day David and Goliath story.” “We are more kitschy but we embrace that,” he said. He rejects his rival’s assertion that his figures are cheap knockoffs compared with those at Madame Tussauds. Over the last six years, Sundher said, his company has made significant investments—he wouldn’t say how much—to upgrade the museum. He said that since 2005, every wax figure, except for the facsimile of Charlie Chaplin, has been replaced. The museum has been renovated to let

guests pose for photos next to the figures, and he plans to add 20 new figures by November. Thomas of Madame Tussauds said figures there, created by a team of professionals in London, are clearly superior. But he said surveys have shown that attraction is losing customers who assume the two museums are either the same or very similar. “This is about our brand,” Thomas said. “We don’t want people being confused.” Online reviews of the two attractions seem to favor Madame Tussauds. On the online consumer rating site Yelp.com, Madame Tussauds’ Hollywood location currently boasts four stars compared with 2.5 for the Hollywood Wax Museum. One Yelp reviewer said that the Lucille Ball figure in the Hollywood Wax Museum “looks like a Meth addict,” adding that Cameron Diaz was “missing fingers” and the “wig was sliding off” the head of Mike Myers, who was dressed as film character Austin Powers. But at the Hollywood Wax Museum this week, Shaorong Young, a tourist from Albuquerque, said he and his wife and two children were impressed by the wax replicas. “They look very real to me,” Young said as he snapped photos of a wax Hulk Hogan, standing in a fighting ring with Sylvester Stallone from the “Rocky” movies and Jack Black from the movie “Nacho Libre.” “This is worth the money.”

similar techniques. Research: Both wax museums collect photos, death masks or other renditions of the celebrity. Whenever possible, Madame Tussauds invites

the celebrities for a sitting to have more than 250 measurements taken. The Hollywood Wax Museum rarely gets a celebrity to pose for a sitting, relying more heavily on close-up

photos. Clay sculpture: Professional sculptors make a clay bust of the celebrity based on the photos and, when possible, the measurements. This can take 10 to 12 weeks. Molds: Molds are made from the clay sculptures. Wax: Hot wax is poured into the molds and left to cool and harden. Hair and skin colour: The wax heads are removed from the molds so that hair, eyelashes, whiskers and eyebrows can be plugged in, one strand at a time—a process that can take as long as five weeks. Oil-based paint is applied for the skin colour. Eyes and teeth: At the sitting, Madame Tussauds’ artists compare the celebrity’s eyes with stock glass eyes and use watercolours to match variations in the iris and sclera colours. Teeth are porcelain or dental acrylic and coloured to match. Clothing: Madame Tussauds asks celebrities to donate the clothes that will be worn by the wax figures. The Hollywood Wax Museum handmakes the costumes. Cost: Madame Tussauds estimates each figure to cost up to $300,000

to discuss the cost to produce its figures.

Go upcountry in Maui for farm tours, good food Carol Pucci CONTRIBUTOR

KULA,

Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

Mornings in Maui generally demand nothing more strenuous than pulling on a pair of shorts and san-

dals and heading for the beach. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no swimming or snorkeling today.

Instead, a dozen of us have signed up for a tour at the Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;o Farm in upcountry Maui, 3,500 feet above the ocean on the slopes of Haleakala volcano. We compose a youpick salad with snippets of wild anise, garlic chives and mustard greens; sample espresso made from farm-grown coffee beans; and sit down to a farm-totable feast prepared by a gourmet chef. Upcountry Maui is a region of lush vegetation and winding, two-lane mountain roads. A halfdozen microclimates and rich, volcanic soil make growing conditions ideal on the volcanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower slopes.

▼ DETROIT AUTO SHOW

Japan back stronger than ever Lorne Drury CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

There may not be as many world premiers at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit as there would have been five years ago, but the enthusiasm of the manufacturers this year is undeniable. For the past few years, presenters here tried to put on a brave face, but it was

evident that the entire industry was suffering during the economic downturn and the subdued atmosphere at the Detroit show was a hint of what was ahead in the coming year. This year however, things are different, for both the domestic manufacturers as well as Japanese firms like Honda/Acura and Toyota/ Lexus, who suffered

through a difficult year in 2011 after the earthquake in Japan devastated the industry at home and abroad. Supply problems appear to be under control now and these Japanese firms are coming back stronger than ever. Acura, for example, has suffered in recent years with a lack of new product, but this year it has three reveals at the

Detroit show. Meanwhile, Toyota used the Detroit show to present the newest entry in the Prius family, the Prius c hatchback, while Scion debuted the FR-S compact sports coupe and Lexus revealed its striking LF-LC premium concept coupe. The Acura NSX concept promises to put excitement back into the Acura brand that has been

ACURA is bringing back its halo car—the NSX sports coupe— within three years and this time around it will be built in the USA. missing since this halo model supercar was discontinued in 2005. This time around, the NSX will be built in the USA. Acura executives announced this shortly after members of the international press corps got their first look at the concept that demonstrates the direction the new NSX will take when it comes to the retail market, and the racetrack, within the next three years. The new NSX will make use of lightweight materials and feature a mid-mounted V6 engine and Acura’s new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All Wheel Drive) hybrid system.

This will feature a unique two electric motor drive unit that can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering. The fifth and final entry in the expanded Prius family, the 2012 Prius c (the c represents city in the Prius lineup) will come to market this year and bring Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive to the subcompact segment. This urban friendly five-door hatchback is expected to have a combined fuel consumption rating of 3.7L/100km, the lowest rating of any vehicle without a plug. It will be offered in three trim levels Toyota’s Scion div-

ision showed its 2013 FR-S sports car, developed in conjunction with Subaru. A compact, rear-wheel drive high-performance coupe, the FR-S will be the fifth vehicle in the Scion family and will go on sale this spring. It has a 2.0-litre flat boxer engine that is mounted mid-ship and low to produce a favorable front-to-rear weight ratio. The engine will produce 200 hp and 151 lb/ft of torque.

Europeans: power, green, fun Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

DETROIT, Mi.: European automakers at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit ran the gamut from green to mean to just plain fun. Volkswagen staged the world premiere of its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no-compromiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jetta Hybrid. It is the fastest hybrid in the compact car class

with a 0-60 mph time of 9.0 seconds. Power comes from a 1.4-litre TSI 150 hp gasoline engine and a 20 kW zero-emissions electric motor. Together, these provide fuel consumption that is around 20 per cent better overall than an equivalent gasoline-powered vehicle (54 mpg Imperial). On electric power alone, the Jetta Hybrid can be driven at speeds of

up to 70 km/h over a distance of two kilometres (1.3 miles), depending on conditions. In terms of speed, it offers the same power and more torque (184 lb/ft) than the normally aspirated 2.5-litre engine that is commonly used in the Jetta in Canada. VW also took electrification and combined it with a bit of whimsy in the See Europeans B3

E-Bugster fun and chargeable all-electric E-Bugster. The two-seater uses an electric motor that provides 85 kWh of power and sends it from 0-60 mph in 10.9 seconds. Range is said to be at least 110 miles from the 28.3 kWh lithium-ion batteries. It can be fully charged in just 35 minutes thanks to a new Combined Charging System that was developed in co-operation with Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, Ford and General Motors/Opel. The latest from smart is a pickup—believe it or not. Making its world debut in Detroit, the smart for-us is designed to combine the practical loading of a pickup with the reality of 21st century urban ttraffic for the first time. With its exterior dimensions (length/width/ height: 3547/1506/1701 tmm) it could almost go unnoticed on the loading area of a typical pickup truck. Thanks to the state-ofthe-art electric drive with a 55 kW magneto-electric motor, the zero-emission smart for-us is agile and looks like a blast to drive. Also making its world debut at Detroit was the Porsche 911 Cabriolet. As with the Coupes, the new Cabriolets start with the 911 Carrera, powered by a 350 hp, 3.4-litre six-cylinder engine and the 911 Carrera S with a 400 hp flat engine and 3.8 litre displacement. Mercedes-Benz brought the next generation SL luxury sportscar to Detroit where it was warmly received. The new SL has been produced for the first time almost entirely from aluminum and weighs up to 140 kg less than its predecessor. It will be available with two different suspension systems. The SL features semi-active adjustable damping as standard. The optional active suspension system ABC (Active Body Control) is available as an alternative. The new V8 in the SL 500 develops 435 hp from its displacement of 4663 cc. That is 12 per cent more than its predecessor despite some 0.8 litres less displacement. Fuel consumption has been improved by up to 22 per cent. When it comes to pure

luxury and power, it’s hard to top the two new Bentley Continental V8 models shown for the first time in Detroit. The new 4.0-litre, twin turbocharged V8 Continental GT coupe and GTC convertible produce 500 hp and 487 lb/ft of torque. Combined with a new close-ratio eight-speed automatic transmission, this translates into a sub-5 second acceleration time for the 0-100 km/h sprint and a top speed of over 290 km/h. A very special Audi Q3 Concept is considered an SUV and is named for winter sports like the runs in the famous Colorado mountain resort which inspired its name. Fitted with 255/45 section off-road tires, the

VOLVO XC60 PLUG-IN HYBRID CONCEPT HAS A NEWLY DEVELOPED EIGHTSPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION.

Audi Q3 Vail Concept features a 2.5-litre fivecylinder TFSI engine with direct injection and turbocharging that generates an output of 310 hp. A wonderful Audi touch is the engine’s five cylinders are consecutively numbered with red ëwrinkled-finish’ paint applied to the cylinder head cover. Making its debut in Detroit, Volvo described the XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept as an electric car, a highly economical hybrid and a powerful highperformance car all rolled into one. It allows the driver to decide how the available power from the combination of the high-performance gasoline engine and the electric motor is to be utilized with the touch of a button. The front wheels of the XC60 Plug-in Hybrid Concept are powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged engine from the forthcoming VEA (Volvo Environmental Architecture) engine family. It produces 280 hp and maximum torque of 280 lb/ft. Power to the wheels is through a newly developed eight-speed automatic transmission.

THE ALL-ELECTRIC E-BUGSTER drew a lot of attention in Detroit with 85 kWh of power that allows it to travel at least 110 miles on its 28.3 kWh lithium-ion batteries. CONTRIBUTED

A notable lack of excess and a re-focusing on smaller, greener, more fuel efficient cars summarized the domestic automakers at this week’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Huge trucks and fullsize luxury sedans were almost non-existent, with compact and mid-sized vehicles taking the forefront, and all because the auto industry is starting to shift its attention to ‘nextgen’ buyers. Nowhere was this more evident than at Chevrolet, which showed the hot, new sub-compact Sonic RS and two compact concepts. Chevrolet will be inviting younger buyers to have their say during the design phase before the concepts become reality in one or two years time. The idea even has a name: co-creation. In their research, Chevrolet found that 54 per cent of buyers 30 and under would rather be on social media with their friends than driving. Code 130R, the first Chevrolet concept, is a four-seat coupe with a simple upright profile. Painted in an all-new red metallic paint with matte anodized gold wheels, Code 130R features heritage performance-inspired styling and rear-wheel drive. Code 130R’s design-

ers conceived the 1.4-litre turbocharged engine to be tuned to work in tandem with eAssist electric boost technology. By shutting off the engine at stops, recapturing braking energy and smoothing torque during acceleration, this concept takes automotive electrification to the next level and balances turbocharged

Ford says Fusion will also come with seven leadingedge technologies Domestics from B4 sion in Detroit, calling it one of the most significant vehicles in its portfolio. Fusion isn’t just one mid-size sedan, but a family of three, with Ford claiming it is the first sedan to offer gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Fusion will also come with seven leading-edge technologies like Lane Keeping System, adaptive cruise control, active park assist and MyFord Touch. The all-new Ford Fusion shows how Ford is delivering features customers truly want and value. Buyers will also have a wide range of fuel-efficient powertrains including EcoBoost, hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines, automatic and manual transmission offerings and auto start stop technology. The Lincoln MKZ Concept is a styling study that rides on an all-new kmidsize platform shared with the Ford Fusion. The sedan is capable of utilizing multiple powertrain options in front-wheeldrive and all-wheel-drive configurations. Like the recently introduced MKS and MKT with EcoBoost, the Lincoln MKZ Concept features Lincoln Drive Control and the sophisticated Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) adjustable suspension. Prior to the official opening of Auto Show in

At 135 horsepower-per-litre it is more powerful than the highest-performing engines from luxury competitors such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes. The 2013 Buick Encore is an all-new, versatile five-passenger crossover that joins a rapidly expanding family of Buick vehicles that has recently seen the additions of the Verano compact luxury sedan, the Regal GS sport sedan, and fuelefficient eAssist ‘light electrification’ technology on both LaCrosse and Regal.

The ninth generation Accord will debut this fall and Honda gives us an idea of what it might look like with the Honda Accord Concept Coupe unveiled in Detroit. The Accord Concept refines the current look in an attractive exterior package. More powertrains will be offered including a plug-in hybrid model in addition to the four- and six-cylinder gasoline versions. Making its world debut here, the Nissan e-NV200 Concept is an advanced electric vehicle that previews a near-future production version of Nissan’s multi-use NV200. The battery capacity of this zero-emissions vehicle will support a driving range similar to the Nissan LEAF, but the load capacity makes it viable for business use. The Nissan Pathfinder concept gives a preview of the next generation Nissan Pathfinder SUV. Set to go on sale this fall, the Pathfinder Concept hints at a sleeker, sexier look for the popular SUV that has been on the market since 1986 and sold more than 1.2 million units. It features three-row, seven-passenger seating and a refined V6 engine that Nissan says will deliver a 25 per cent improvement in combined city/ highway fuel economy, while maintaining a towing capacity near the top of the segment.

Hyundai made waves right off the bat at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit as its Elantra midsize sedan was named 2012 North American Car of the Year. The award was presented at the kickoff of media previews to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show. The Elantra edged

out the Volkswagen Passat and Ford Focus for top honours. Hyundai didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let any grass grow under its feet though with launches of the 2013 Veloster Turbo and 2013 Genesis Coupe at the show. Although it won the Best New Performance Car under $50K category in the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) 2012 Canadian Car of the Year Awards, the sporty Veloster clearly needs a bit more power to make it truly a memorable performer. Hyundai addressed this with the world debut of the Veloster Turbo, boasting 201 hp, sport

tuned engine, exhaust note and steering and a unique front fascia, fog lights and ground effects. Hyundai revealed the significantly redesigned rear-drive Genesis sport coupe. With a more aggressive design, more powerful powertrain and upscale interior refinement, the Genesis Coupe will be offered with a new eightspeed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that promises improved fuel economy. Power will come from a 3.8-litre V6 engine (348 hp, 295 lb/ft of torque) or a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine (274 hp, 275 lb/ft of torque).

NISHI, BLANCHE ETHEL (nee Chaplin) November 26, 1947 to January 5, 2012

A great-granddaughter of Kelowna’s first Mayor, Blanche was born to Harry and Betty Chaplin on November 26, 1947 at Kelowna General Hospital, the smallest baby to survive for ten years. Her early years were spent on the family farm, Orchard Bays, currently known as Traders Cove Regional Park, then in the South Pandosy area, always returning to the farm, originally via the ferries which she loved. An avid swimmer, who could hold her breath for a full four minutes, Blan enjoyed her beloved beach for many summers, often with relatives and friends who came to enjoy the lake. Blanche married her high school sweetheart, Douglas Nishi, working in banking wherever Doug was transferred with IBM, spending several years in Regina and Vancouver. Everywhere she went, Blan made many friends. In the early nineties, she was so happy to move home to Kelowna again. Unfortunately, Doug soon started to show signs of early dementia, which came to define Blan’s life for many years. Blanche carried on with the help of family and friends. In August 2005, Doug had to be placed in a care home. As always, “Auntie Blannie” especially enjoyed being involved in the lives of her nieces and nephews. Everyone was devastated when as soon as 2007, Blanche herself started to show signs of dementia. Over the next four years, Blanche never lost her goodwill, and made every effort to express her gratitude to her caregivers. She was born too soon and had to struggle for life at the beginning and end. As a young person, Blan was active in St. Paul’s Sunday School, Junior Choir, Explorers, CGIT, and Youth Group. She loved Girl Guides as a Brownie, Guide, she was proud to be in the honour guard in City Park for Princess Margaret’s arrival to open the “new” Okanagan Lake Bridge, and Sea Rangers. Blanche had a beautiful touch on the piano. She loved to sing, singing as she worked around her home, to read, and to play board games. History, real, especially that of England, and Doug’s Japanese heritage, and imaginary, such as the world of King Arthur, fascinated her. She loved movies, the British Royalty, and was a long-time fan of British Mysteries and Coronation Street. Blan enjoyed crafts, being especially talented at candle-making. She and Doug were among the first to create computerized special occasion cards. She loved animals and sitting by a campfire, singing or chatting or just enjoying the flames. Family and Okanagan Lake meant the world to her. Blanche was predeceased by her mother in 1987, and her father in December 2010. She is survived by her husband, Doug Nishi, her two sisters and their families: Marjorie (John Beales), Johnny (Joanie) and newborn Benjamin, Meredith, David (Karen + 1) and Graham, and Mary (Bruce Thompson), Laura Martini (Ryan), and Scott, and her in-laws, Ron and Rosaline Nishi, (Dawne), Florence Ishiguro (Shun), Kevin (Raelene), Lauren and Justin, and Andrea Ishiguro (Eric Ronay), Gabriel and Evan, aunts, uncles, many cousins, and her beloved little dog, Lacey. A warm thank you to Blanche’s caregivers on the Ethel Glen Unit of Cottonwoods for their gentle care and special efforts to help her always look her best, and for their support of her sisters. A very special thank you to Nola Schweitzer, whose extra care helped enrich Blanche’s last year and a half. A Memorial Service will take place on Tuesday, January 17, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church, Lakeshore Road, Kelowna. Please make any donations to research on Cruetzfeldt-Jakob Disease or the charity of your choice. Arrangements in care of Springfield Funeral Home, www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077, with thanks for their many years of support of families with dementia.

SHOWCASE W KETTLE VALLEY SHOWHOME

Entertainment luxuries appeal to empty nesters Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

The Kentland Homes showhome in Kettle Valley is an outstanding example of catering a home’s design to the buyer. Located at 5498 Mountainside Dr., the Kentland showhome is geared towards the empty nester who enjoys the company of their friends and family. The floorplan has proven so successful, Kentland has built eight homes in Kettle Valley with variations based on this showhome design theme. It’s a 1.5-storey house with a full walk-out basement onto a heated salt water pool deck. The house features a master on main floor concept with open living spaces, while the upstairs ‘half storey’ includes two bedrooms, a full bath and two separates sitting areas. The basement rolls through entertaining spaces for every season from the martini bar to the staged seating home theatre. The moment you step through the front entry at 5498 Mountainside, you are greeted by a pair of fine millwork staircases. The detailing is exquisite and intentional, meant to draw you into the home and hold your attention from the first time you step through the door. When moving through the home to the kitchen the attention to detail continues. Once past the pair of stacked stone pillars, the

kitchen features a full complement of Viking appliances. The ‘great room’ off of the kitchen has a double height vaulted, barrel rolled ceiling over large arched windows with deep molding. The built in cabinetry around the fireplace has an incredible amount of storage. The fireplace stone surround matches the creamy stone clad columns, a visual counterweight to the dark, wide plank flooring. Upstairs the ‘half story’ is lofted around another open great room. The two bedrooms are perfect for teens or visiting company. Details again make the space as the upstairs rooms come with installed iPad docking stations. The design of the top floor includes two separate open gathering spaces. One are lends its self to lounging while the other is suited for an open den or library. There is a balcony with seating area and view of the lake from this floor. Downstairs is all about sharing time with friends and family. The heated salt water pool, usable up to eight months out of the year, is accessed from the basement. If the outdoors isn’t where you want to be in this home, the lower floor has almost every possible entertaining choice covered. A billiards area is set aside for a large table. There is a martini bar and lounge area. The bar is framed with the same stone as the main floor de-

Around the corner, for a totally different party, is a 320 bottle wine

closet. A custom installation made of deep stained knotty alder. For quieter evenings there is a six-seat home theatre. The seating is staged so everyone feels

like they have their own space when viewing a show on the 108 inch projection screen. Stephen Wells, general manager at Kentland Homes, says this

showhome is loaded with luxuries for the entertaining-minded home buyer. “It was designed as a show home from the beginning. It comes with a lot of extra details.”

The Mountainside Drive showhome is available for viewing by appointment only, currently listed at $980,000 (HST included). Call 250-764-1306.
