Winery to invest in Napa Valley site Street upgrade Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

More often it’s U.S. companies that expand into Canada, but a West Kelowna winery is looking to reverse that trend. The Stewart family, owners of Quails’ Gate Estate Winery, has cofounded a new winery with the Zepponi family in the Napa Valley in California, called Plume. The deal has been a year and a half in the making, said Quails’ Gate CEO Tony Stewart, as they made wine at a custom crushing facility in California last year and expect to have the first Plume 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon available for sale in B.C. by the end of November. By 2012, the goal is to have a home for the winery in the Napa Valley, which Zepponi will head up. He is looking after contracting with the five vineyards in different areas of the valley who supplied the 75 tonnes of mostly cabernet sauvignon grapes. “Dan knows growers there. When I was down there last week the fruit was looking good,” commented Stewart, adding this year’s harvest is expected to begin in the next few weeks. The Zepponi family has three generations of experience growing grapes and making wines in California. Dan Zepponi previ-

ously made his home in the Okanagan and served as president of Mission Hill Family Estate and Artisan Wine Company until just a few years ago. He is currently looking for a winery with vineyards to purchase in the Napa Valley. Hospitality will be the focus, but there won’t be a restaurant. “We want to duplicate the Quails’ Gate experience,” Stewart said. Once they establish the operation in California, they’ll focus on the local market, but the first wine will be available in Alberta next week, with the idea of concentrating on Western Canadian markets at first, Stewart said. While Zepponi is supervising operations in California, they have a “notable” winemaker involved whose identity is not being revealed, said Stewart. “We’re not looking to create a big fruit bomb. We’re looking for some elegance that is classic of the Napa terroir, rich and complex and elegant, and at a price point that people would feel is good value,” said Stewart. Most Napa wines cost more than $30 a bottle here, and their cabernet will be priced at $29.99. “Like Quails’ Gate, we’re not focussing on the lower-end market,” he said. Stewart said the family has a global perspective on wine. “It’s easy to be insular in B.C., but certain

The city appears to be getting a mixed message about what it is merchants on Bernard Avenue want when it comes to the proposed timing of a plan to revitalize Kelowna’s main downtown street. Following an open house where the city presented four timing scenarios and saw dozens of people, mainly downtown merchants, pass through, Kelowna’s design and construction services director Bill Berry said a majority appeared to favour his department’s preferred schedule. That would see work start in the fall of 2012 and then take a break over the winter, restart in the spring of 2013, shut down over the summer months and be completed in the fall of 2013. Berry said that schedule was put together after meetings with merchants were held, and the city was told business owners didn’t want construction ongoing during their busy, revenue-producing summer months. But Michael Neill, owner of Mosaic Books, showed up at the open house armed with a petition calling for the work to be fast-tracked by doing it in one straight go, working through the fall and winter of 2012 and the spring of 2013. The petition included the signatures of 100 area merchants. The winter work scenario was one of the four presented at the open house. The city says its consultant on the Bernard revitilization project, PCL Construction, has estimated working over the winter and around the clock to speed up completion would add an estimated $6.7 million to the $14.6 million budget. While some merchants have disputed that figure, those at the open house could provide a different figure to cover the added cost of working through the winter. The city says while it could be a mild winter, it has to plan for a worst-case weather scenario in order to be prepared. Berry conceded that while a majority at the open house supported the city staff’s preferred scenario, there was support expressed for the winter work proposal as well. The city has said the challenges of doing the work in See Disputed A12

Rockets lose out

Tarnished reputation but no record for limo driver Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A former Kelowna man of the year nominee walked away from a Kelowna courtroom Tuesday with little more than a blemished reputation. Ronald John Hockey beat a drug trafficking charge that related to his efforts to get an undercover officer a couple flaps of cocaine Feb. 5, 2010. “I am not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Hockey was involved with trafficking,” said Judge Brad Chapman. With the facts as they were presented, he judge surmised Hockey could be seen as the man who helped the officer buy his drugs—not the person who helped a dealer unload a product. It was that slight delineation that saved Hockey from a criminal record, but the judge pointed out that if the standard of proof wasn’t so high, he may have come to a different conclusion. Hockey’s responses when he got caught in a police sting operation, Chapman said, were at the very least, “concerning.” According to the testimony of undercover police officer Const. Fred Coon, Hockey came into sight when a an attempt to hire another suspected dealer/driver were confused. Hockey wasn’t the in-

tended target of a sting that focused on the West Kelowna drug trade, but when he showed up as a driver, Coon was told by a superior officer to roll with it. Coon testified that he and Hockey were outside a beer and wine store when he first brought up the subject of drugs, indirectly. A stranger was walking by, and the officer asked him where he could get some “blow.” The stranger told them coke could be procured in the Lawrence and Bertram Avenue area of Kelowna. Hockey, said Coon, overheard the conversation as he was three feet away, but wasn’t going to drive his client to that area. “He said he knew everyone,” said Coon, explaining that Hockey then drove off to a downtown restaurant and went inside. Not long after leaving, Hockey returned and said “it was dead inside” so nothing was gained. Coon then had Hockey pick up two other undercover officers, and the trio were taken to the closest bar on the Westside — Friends. Hockey walked around and talked to other patrons, but nothing happened. In short order, they whole crew were driven to Whiskey Jacks pub, at

the undercover officer’s behest. They weren’t at that pub long enough to make a drink order, when Const. Coon saw a black jeep pull up beside their limo. From his vantage point, it appeared as though the interaction would be drug related so Coon went outside. As Coon walked up, he was asked by “Sam,” the driver of the jeep, “how much?” He said he wanted $200 worth, and left. Sam and Hockey continued to speak, he said, while the rest of them got into the back of the limo. Sam left to “talk with his supplier” and they were driven to the parking lot of Extra Foods. Sam then returned with the drugs and handed them to Hockey. Coon got out of the limo, thinking he’d have to make a payment, but Hockey picked it up. He then passed the flaps back to Coon. Coon didn’t pay right away, instead waiting until he left the limo to cover off the cost of it, the drugs and a $50 tip for Hockey. All said and done, Hockey acted as more of an intermediary than a trafficker, said the judge, as he delivered the not guilty verdict. Hockey was not only nominated for the City of Kelowna’s man of the year award in 2001, he unsuccessfully ran for council twice before.

Date set for Snelson sentencing Neil George Snelson will be back in a Kelowna courtroom Nov. 14, to learn his sentence for the conviction he was delivered last week. Snelson was found guilty of manslaughter, relating to the death of Jennifer Cusworth, a 19-year-old college student who was found dead in a ditch Oct. 17, 1993 after a house party she and Snelson both attended. Cusworth had been strangled, but ul-

timately died from multiple blows to the side and back of her head. Snelson was charged with her first degree murder in 2009, after his DNA came up as a match to the semen found in Cusworth. He’s been in custody ever since and that time will count as fouryears, when sentencing occurs. Manslaughter sentences can range in severity from little more than probation to 25 years in prison.

UPENDED…Two people were taken to Kelowna General Hospital for

minor injuries after their van was hit broadside by another vehicle at the intersection of Gordon and Harvey on Tuesday morning. Witnesses stated that the northbound brown Buick van was making a left turn from Harvey onto Gordon Drive on a green light. The 82-year-old male driver, from West Kelowna, failed to see the southbound Buick sedan that was being driven by a 38-year -old Kelowna female. The sedan struck the van, knocking it over. Both drivers, along with a 71-year-old passenger in the van, were taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver of the van was issued a Motor Vehicle Act ticket for failure to yield.

Teen slaying goes to jury trial The teen charged with second-degree murder for fatally stabbing another teen, Ashlee Hyatt, will have her fate put into the hands of a jury. At the end of a six-day pretrial hearing, Judge Jane Cartwright committed the teenager— whose name is under a publication ban due to her age—to trial for the charge. If she’s convicted, she may face an adult sentence. Hyatt was stabbed June 2, 2010, outside a house party in Peachland. The fatal altercation has been described by her friends as a “completely stupid” tragedy—and a wakeup call about the perils of violence. “It’s just not worth it when you can take someone’s life so quickly, or have your own life taken away from you,” wrote Ashlee’s friend Hollie Locke in a recent letter to the

Capital News. “Ashlee is never going to come back now, and I will never be able to do the things we used to do with each other again.” Ashlee’s mother Charrie has also struggled with the loss. In addition to attending court everyday in hopes a trial for the second-degree murder charge would be granted, she’s tried to create something positive. Numerous fundraising efforts for the Ashlee Hyatt Memorial Bursary have taken place over the last year. That account is held at the Central Okanagan Bursary and Scholarship Society, 1-616 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 4X4. Mail should be addressed to Pauline Kirk and cheques made out to COBSS, with Ashlee Hyatt Memorial Bursary written in the memo line

The Kelowna Rockets will not play host the 2013 Memorial Cup. The Rockets lost out in its attempts to host the Memorial Cup for the second time on Wednesday, when the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades were named as the host city for the 2013 tournament. Kelowna, Red Deer and Saskatoon all made bids for the event before the WHL board of governors voted and selected Saskatoon. “I feel bad for our committee because of the amount of work that went into this bid,” said Rockets president and general manager Bruce Hamilton. “All three bids were very good. I thought Red Deer’s was exceptional and then Saskatoon blew the lid off the thing.” A major difference in the bids was the involvement of the provincial governments of Alberta and Saskatchewan, who both made financial commitments to the bids in their respective provinces. Traditionally in B.C. the province doesn’t aid in bids for sporting events and with the amount of money needed to secure the tournament, those funds were a major factor, said Hamilton. “I understad times are tough in B.C. but for all of us in the sports and culture industries who want to put on events, eventually there is going to have to be some funding needed to get some of these things,” said Hamilton. “Our bid was as good as we could make it as a private company.” The size of Prospera Place was also a factor. In announcing the decision WHL commissioner Rob Robison said the size of the Blades arena, 15,195 seat Credit Union Centre, was better suited for a large event when compared to Kelowna’s Prospera Place at 6,007.

The founders of ecotourism company, Hidden Places, the veterinarian (Goering) and author (Coffey) have dedicated their lives to elephant conservation, travelling the world in search of the majestic beasts and taking others out to see what they’re talking about. Whether in Thailand, India, Rwanda or Laos, the couple are always looking for ways to protect the animals that have become the centre of their personal and professional lives. “I think our elephant work and its offshoots will keep us busy for the rest of our lives,” said Coffey, in an email interview from Rwanda.

Just last month, for example, the couple joined a group of women who make paper from elephant dung and bead it to sell in tourist lodges. One young woman in the group had received an entrance scholarship for Nairobi University, they were told, but her father barred his support as she refused to undergo female genital mutilation. The couple used the Elephant Earth Initiative to create a scholarship to see her through all four years of school, and their touring group pitched in to ensure it would happen.

Concern over poachers prowling at night Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Even though hunter numbers and harvest rates are down, there are still poachers out there and the Conservation Officer Service wants information to help in their in vestigations. CO Terry Myroniuk says they have some information on four separate incidents of night hunting or “pit lamping” in the Christian Valley area, at least two last Saturday and Sunday. That is taken very seriously because it’s so dangerous, as well as being unethical. The charge is hunting during prohibited hours and for a first conviction, the penalty can be $100,000 plus a year in prison, while both can rdouble for a second conviction. There’s an automatic five-year suspension of the offender’s hunting license as well, he said. There’s also a charge for hunting with a light. COs from a number of tdifferent communities did a long-weekend blitz from Kelowna to Grand Forks, covering a large area and ticketing for such offences as carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle.

W OUR VIEW

Facing reality: Times are tough

T

he Liberal government of Premier Christy Clark is becoming a little too liberal with taxpayers’ dollars. It is also going ahead with policies not conducive to creating jobs, at a time when the economy is uncertain at best. That message came through from Monday’s Speech from the Throne, the first under the Clark administration. The government is indicating that it will end a “net zero” policy which has kept labour

costs at a fixed level. Under the policy, public sector unions were asked to settle for contracts that did not increase overall costs. If benefits increased, other costs needed to be adjusted downwards. This remains a sensible policy in regards to public sector jobs. Public sector employees, for the most part, make as much or more than their private sector counterparts. Their jobs are far more secure, and they have generous benefits. Their defined

250-763-7114 DELIVERY 250-763-7575

benefit pension plans are a private sector rarity. This is no time to start boosting public sector labour costs, as taxpayers should not be asked for more until the economy improves dramatically. This sets a bad example for municipal leaders, some of whom were hoping to contain labour costs after years of generous salary increases. They will soon be negotiating new contracts with their unions. Steady wage increases at a time of fro-

zen wages and pensions for most taxpayers has meant rising property taxes are much more of a burden. Upcoming municipal contracts should be negotiated with the “net zero” policy in mind. This will be tough, now that the government has signalled its intentions to ease away from the policy. The net effect will be higher property and provincial taxes, at a time when most people are stretched to find extra dollars. That won’t fly.

Canstruction a creative way to offer help to those in need

M

aj. Ron Cartmell of the Kelowna Salvation Army tried to put a face to those who need help from the food bank. Speaking before the Kelowna Rotary Club luncheon on Tuesday, Cartmell gave everyone a reminder of why that is impossible to do. That’s because people in need of help from either the Salvation Army Food Bank or Kelowna Community Food Bank touch on all segments of our community. Single people or single parents, working people or the unemployed, seniors, people being squeezed by the high cost of medication on their lim-

ited incomes—pick a group and they are represented at our local food banks these days. “It is the role of the community to Barry feed the hungry, not Gerding the food banks,” Cartmell said. “We are here to help facilitate that responsibility.” Cartmell was one of several speakers invited to speak before the Rotarians, to help kick off the service club’s Canstruction food and money fundraising project for both local food banks. In its second year last fall, Canstruction raised 22,000 cans of food, collected by participants who used the

EDITOR’S NOTE

donated cans their teams raised to create works of art and engineering creativity at Orchard Park shopping centre. This year, Rotary hopes to collect 30,000 cans and $5,000 in cash donations. Grade 6 and 7 students at Dorothea Walker Elementary School embraced the contest last year, fundraising to collect the canned good donations and then using those cans for an artistic creation that won them several Canstruction awards. “There is a significant need in our community to help low-income children and families with good nutrition. This competition gives businesses and organizations the opportunity to strengthen their team-building while supporting a good cause,” said Dorothea Walker teacher Russ Bisc-

hoff who helped spearhead last year’s effort among his students. And the students are back again this year to participate in this year’s Canstruction event, setting the standard by which other organizations and businesses can and should measure themselves. Rotarian Robin Smith said he hopes up to 10 teams will take part this year, which will take place Feb. 6 to 13 next year at Orchard Park mall. The Canstruction idea originally started in New York City as architects and engineers got together to come up with an idea to give something back to their city, to help those in need. From that desire evolved Canstruction, combining the elements of fundraising and collecting food donations for people in need while full-

filling their own creative challenge to create an engineering artistic marvel from food cans that will capture the public’s interest and raise awareness about people needing food bank support. As Cartmell noted, food banks offer a helping hand up for people trying to navigate through a crisis in their lives. “We’re not there to help people for the next 30 years, but to help them through a difficult crisis at a given point in their lives,” he said, something that all of us are able to avoid often out of sheer luck and a support system of family and friends that many people can’t count on.

LETTERS W KELOWNA AIRPORT

Security hampered by lower wage earners To the editor: Local reporters have missed something that fails the smell test at our Kelowna International Airport. They duly reported that the city is planning to build a mega-million dollar security and customs centre at the airport. But, no one said boo when 20 security and customs people were laid off this year because the need for security had apparently decreased. So which is it? Has the need for security decreased at our international airport generating sur-

plus staff? Or has it increased to the point of needing a $5-million upgrade? A skeptical person might see this as an attempt to get rid of higher paid staff and replace them with low wage earners. The security contract is awarded to the lowest bid, and a new contractor is taking over soon. People who were near retirement have lost their pensions, so someone (Is it the city?) is saving money on the backs of loyal and trusted people. A more cynical view-

point would see the confusion among remaining security staff—i.e. the responsibilities of five managers are now carried by one—as a golden opportunity for criminal elements to expand their smuggling activities. Flights between Mexico and Kelowna are increasing dramatically giving the rich and powerful an opportunity to establish our city as a drug smuggler’s hub. So, a new low bid security contractor takes over and low paid workers replace former trusted staff, giving criminals

W KELOWNA

OCP amendment too easily able to be missed To the editor: Last week, the City of Kelowna ran a notice in the local newspapers advertising a public hearing on an Official Community Plan amendment as a result of the consultants’ report on the Downtown Plan Charrette. The ad reads: “The applicant is proposing OCP amendments to the Kelowna 2030 Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 10500 in relation to the Downtown Plan Charrette recommendations.” And that is all. Nowhere does the ad mention that the key recommendation is that the 19-storey building height limit in the downtown be increased to 26 storeys. I am searching for the correct adjective to describe the intent of the city in not fully informing the public as to what this

amendment is all about. I could call city staff incompetent but I know the people in the city clerk’s office to be reasonably intelligent. Should I instead call the city deceptive and imply that they deliberately concealed the controversial nature of the proposed amendment? That might be closer to the truth as I know that amendment enjoys considerable support on city council or it wouldn’t have gone to public hearing in the first place. I also know that at least one member of city council had expressed concern about potential opposition to this amendment given council’s previous experience with the public uproar over CD-21. I don’t know if I should go that far and accuse the city of deliberately concealing the content

of this amendment in order to not arouse the public and ensure its smooth passage, but the very least I can say is that the city was negligent in that it did not fully inform the public of its important content. I will therefore attempt to do this myself through this letter and inform people that there will be a public hearing beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the city hall council chambers where an amendment to the OCP will be presented to increase the maximum building height in downtown Kelowna from 19 to 26 storeys. I hope enough people show up to stop this travesty from ever becoming law. John Zeger, Kelowna

Olson revives death penalty talk To the editor: With the death of Clifford Olson, one sad and unnecessary chapter has closed, perhaps reopening interest in a renewed debate about the death penalty. To justify the return to the death penalty in Canada would only require a new category of crime. People like Clifford Olson who took more than one life in successive, consecutive or sequential crimes should not be permitted to live off the public purse. If a referendum would give us the choice to spare the lives of one-time kill-

ers, I could see the Canadian public pass a law for repeat killers. Many people expect the best in others and, therefore, can’t condemn an offenders to death for one horrendous crime. Even if several people died in one reckless car accident; even if a bank heist goes awry and more than one person dies; even if work place death were due to proven negligence or malice—this could all be explained and, perhaps, forgiven. Presently, there is not much point in reporting thefts, break-ins and min-

or crimes, because often nothing, or too little will be done. Many citizens weigh the time lost, due to criminal proceedings, the increase in insurance rates, the possibility of becoming a “target” for revenge prior to reporting any invasions of their domain. Let us hope that this new crime bill will contain some new, sensible crime categories, and much needed compassion and help for the victims who, until now, appear to be forgotten elements in the law circus. Sylvia Schoepf, West Kelowna

the opportunity to get their people in. The City of Kelowna pretends it is saving money, while assuaging our fears with an expensive new security building! We already know that bikers are firmly established in this town and the daylight professional gunning down of gang leaders in our city can be seen as a measure of the value of this territory to rich, powerful and violent people. The illegal drug trade is the single largest industry in B.C., with the marijuana trade alone competing for top spot.

So what better way to convince the good citizens of Kelowna that our power brokers are on top of the game than by building a multi-million dollar edifice to security. Unfortunately, getting rid of a big chunk of the existing security staff creates a hole in that story large enough to drive a truckload of drugs though. Gregory Teleglow, Kelowna

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

Thanks for voting help To the editor: I wish to thank the FourChange.org group for helping me eliminate the four councillors that I will not vote for, and also to cement my vote for Mayor Sharon Shepard—and I do vote. Ian Morrison, Kelowna

Going The Extra Mile this week...

Students lead by example. The Grade 7 students at Dorothea Walker Elementary School are setting an example for both their peers and the rest of us in Kelowna through their participation in the Canstruction design and sculpture competition. An award winner last year for their efforts, the students are back again this year to participate in this annual public service project in support of the Salvation Army Food Bank and the Kelowna Community Food Bank. Building clever pieces of public art from donated cans of food is intended to raise awareness of the hunger problem in Kelowna and participating in an event to do something about it. “The best prize is the feeling of accomplishment for helping local families in need,” said Grade 7 Dorthea Walker student Sam McDonald.

Want to party in your pyjamas all day? A local winery has the ticket. On Saturday, Oct. 15, Tony Lewis and Vibrant Vines will host Pyjama Jam, a fundraiser for his father-in-law’s charity, www.lovetakesroot.org. His daughter Madilyn is turning four and has decided to forgo birthday gifts in favour of having as many guests as possible bring pyjamas that her grandfather can take to the children in Haiti. “She is just turning four so sometimes when

you ask her what she wants for her birthday she’ll say a magic wand and spaceship. But then if you remind her, she’ll say pyjamas and then she’ll say a magic wand and spaceship,” joked the young winemaker. Lewis has only had the doors to the winery open for a couple of years, but the psychedelic art he features and backyard wine bar are quickly making the East Kelowna busi-

ness a regular stop for live music enthusiasts. Every Saturday they host a band or musician and invite guests to come by to listen and enjoy a glass of wine. Formerly the drummer for Storytime, Lewis says music is a very important part of his life and as such he’s already got himself in synch with the local music scene. He is asking that people come to the win-

ery and join the party, but bring a pair of pyjamas, any size, along to give to the kids. The event will include a launch of Anna Jacyszn’s new CD and see the winery decked out with a tent, bands, face painting and some surprise entertainment.

A wrap for sculpture display Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

For those who relished watching the sculptors work their magic on the Rotary Centre for the Arts grounds this year, fear not— the rocks will remain for a few more days. The Kelowna Sculptors Network Society will have its work on display inside the RCA until Nov. 3. A closing ceremony for the public sculpting project will be held Oct. 16, from 2 to 4 p.m.

The ceremony will include a People’s Choice Award, which can be voted on through Saturday inside the RCA. The sculptors will also unveil a collaborative piece with the designs of 10 local youth etched into the rock. The Rock Tattoo Competition, as it was called, launched at the end of July, and while it took a couple of rounds to secure enough youth artwork to complete, the project is reportedly worth its weight, as public art goes. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Reimer murder trial averted Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The man accused of the 2010 New Year’s Day killing of Joel Reimer entered a plea to a lesser charge last week, allowing him to avert a trial for second-degree murder. George Young, 31, pleaded guilty to criminal negligence causing death and leaving the scene of an accident without offering aid. For those crimes he’ll be sentenced in December. Young was arrested

not long after Jan. 1 2010 when the body of Reimer, a Lake Country resident working in Alberta, was found under an idling minivan on the 300-block of Park Avenue. It’s believed that was where his body had been dragged after initial impact 400 meters away. Police were called to the general area of the crime scene an hour before the grisly discovery, to deal with a report of a disturbance. The complainant heard men screaming at

the corner of Lake Avenue and Pandosy Street and saw two pieces of luggage on the street. After the screaming subsided, the witness heard a vehicle speed by. That was, at the time, believed to be the point of impact. A warrant was issued for Young’s arrest in the days following the accident, and he was eventually picked up. Young’s criminal record in Kelowna dates back to December 1998 when he received a 75-day jail

sentence for two assault charges. In October 2000, he received a two-year jail sentence on two counts of aggravated assault. His next conviction for a violent offence came in July 2006, when he received a jail sentence of 2.5 years for two counts of aggravated assault and one count of assault with a weapon. His record also includes convictions for theft, possession of stolen property and break and enter.

Knife fight leads to an assault charge An altercation involving a knife has led to an aggravated assault charged against a 47-year-old West Kelowna man. The fight between a Kelowna man and the suspect took place on Old Ferry Wharf Road started at 2:40 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.

The RCMP were called to Bridge Hill just before 3 p.m. after the girlfriend of the 42-year-old male victim called 911 and said she was driving him to hospital. An ambulance took the injured man the rest of the way, as paramedics treated him for a slash

wound on his left arm. Police learned the identity of the suspect and arrested him at his home several hours later. Police say the suspect is known to them for previous drug-related offences.

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

KELOWNA’S design and construction services director Bill Berry (second from left) discusses the work schedule scenarios for the Bernard Avenue upgrade with downtown business owners Tuesday at a project open house.

W UPGRADING BERNARD

City facing construction timing dilemma Disputed from A1 the winter include finding construction crews who are used to winter work, dealing with the challenges of snow, freezing temperatures and the effects of both on the work, such as the laying of concrete and asphalt, as well as the variables of weather, and additional costs. But Neil said for the merchants, getting the work done as quickly as possible is crucial, as it will help some businesses on the street survive the construction process. He said a prolonged

street closure could cost him his business as he relies on pedestrian traffic. He added that every time another business closes on Bernard, it affects him because there are fewer shoppers in the area. Neill said the choice of a winter work schedule was difficult for him as he does 25 per cent of his business in November and December. But he said he also does 25 per cent of his business in the summer months. “I’m looking at a rock and a hard place,” he said. For other merchants, the decision is equally difficult. Rod Reinbold, owner of X10sion 207 clothing store at the foot of Bernard, said none of the proposed scenarios were acceptable to him. “In all these scenarios, I will lose money,” he said. Another merchant, Rosemarie Gottschlage,

who runs a bridal and special occasion boutique in the 500-block of Bernard, said her busiest time is from January to June, while from September to December business for her is normally slow. She said all four proposed timing options would adversely affect her business. In addition to the preferred timing plan and the winter work schedule, the two other construction scenarios presented were working straight through the summer in 2013 and one that has now been ruled out—four three month work periods with the first in the spring of 2012, the second in the fall of 2012, the third in the spring of 2013 and the fourth in the fall of 2013. The city says it can’t be ready in time to start major work on Bernard by next spring. The proposed revitalization of Bernard would see the repair and replace-

ment of utilities and other services under the road and a revamp and beautification of the streetscape above ground, including sidewalks twice as wide as the current ones. A majority of merchants are in favour contributing 25 per cent of the cost of the beautification work. That amount is equal to about 10 per cent of the entire $14 .6, million initial budget, said Berry. With a spring start off the table, city staff will take a week or two to finalize a recommendation to council. They will be on hand, however, to answer questions from council about the open house at council’s next meeting, scheduled for Monday afternoon. Staff were originally scheduled to make a recommendation about timing of the work at Monday’s meeting. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

SPORTS W HOCKEY

Bulmer hanging in with Wild Warren Henderson CAPITAL NEWS

The Kelowna Rockets never envisioned being without Brett Bulmer for the 2011-12 season. Then again, the Western Hockey League club didn’t expect Luke Schenn to catch on with the Toronto Maple Leafs as an 18-year-old in 2008. Such is the reality of today’s game where teenagers leave in September for National Hockey League training camps and, on occasion, don’t return. While it’s very early in the new campaign and the Rockets may yet see Bulmer in their uniform this season, he continues to stick with the Minnesota Wild. Three games into the NHL regular season, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Prince George native is settling in on the club’s third line with Matt Cullen and Guillaume Latendresse. Bulmer played 13 minutes 35 seconds and recorded his first point, an assist, in a 2-1 loss to the Islanders on Monday night. On Tuesday in Ottawa, Bulmer played nearly 12

minutes and again displayed his agitating style, inciting Senators’ forward Jason Spezza to take a slashing penalty in the first period. Wild head coach Mike Yeo recently told Fox Sports North he was impressed with Bulmer’s tenacity and grit. “I was taken aback by how fearless this kid was,” Yeo said. “Most often when youngsters play in that league they are a little tentative... but not Brett— he came in with quite an edge. “He has this (pesky) side to him that drives players crazy. Being so tall he is able to poke the puck away with his reach and he is always yapping at players while he is doing it.” For Bulmer’s part, the 19-year-old insists he’s leaving nothing to chance in his bid to remain with the Wild for the entire 2011-12 campaign. “Every day is a new day for me to show that I belong here, and I’m not going to take anything for granted,” Bulmer told Fox Sports. “The guys here have

been really good to me and helped me feel very welcome. Now it’s my turn to go out there and help this team win, by working my hardest to get some results on the ice.” The Wild can play Bulmer in nine regular season games before deciding whether to return him to the Okanagan. If he does play in a 10th NHL game, then the first-year of Bulmer’s three-year entry level deal would officially kick in and he would most likely spend the entire season in Minny. As a 19-year-old, he cannot play in the American Hockey League this season, making the Rockets or the Wild the only options. Rocket Shots… The Rockets have a busy weekend ahead with three road games in as many nights. On Friday and Saturday, Kelowna will visit Marc Habscheid’s Victoria Royals for a weekend doubleheader. On Sunday, the Rockets will travel to Kamloops…The Rockets next home action is Thursday, Oct. 20 against the Vancouver Giants. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Kelowna speedskaters are on the fast track to success of late Local speedskaters Jesse Keca, Jordan Rosborough and Chris Neykov tore up the short track ice last weekend at the Calgary Oval Oktoberfest short track competition.

Keca, 16, led off with an impressive showing against the top women in Western Canada. In the 500m, Jesse placed third with a new personal best time of 46.52 (previous was 47.28).

In the 1000m, she placed fifth with a new time of 1:36.86 and, in the 1500m, she placed eighth with a time of 2:31.8. All the times will qualify her for the Canadian Junior World Trials in ear-

ly December. “The aim of the competition was to establish some times to ensure her a birth into the nationals,” said Kelowna Speed Skating Club coach Nancy Goplen. “We also want-

High school football’s Battle of the Bridge returns to the Apple Bowl Friday night when the Kelowna Owls take on the rival Mt. Boucherie Bears in Okanagan AAA action. Kick off is 6:30 p.m. At 2-0, the Owls are the conference’s only unbeaten team, while the Bears sit at 1-1. KSS coach Roy Anderson looks for the Bears, led by quarterback Joe Court, to use their passing game with regularity. “I expect them to fill the air with footballs,” said Anderson. “No one has really been able to run much on us yet, so I expect them to throw quite a bit. They have a really good quarterback and some good receivers.” The Bears are coming off their first loss of the regular season, 27-18 to the Golds last Friday night

in Salmon Arm. The Owls are coming off a come-from-behind 28-22 win over the Rutland Voodoos (0-2) on Friday night at the Apple Bowl. KSS scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to erase a 2214 deficit, the last coming on a five-yard run by QB Sam Davies with just under a minute to play. Brook Blackmore returned the opening kick off 80 yards for a score for the Owls, then added another major on a 31-yard run. Mitch Weir had the other TD, while Cole Mosychuk and Hudson Andersen had nine tackles each on defense. Sam Ferguson once again led the Voodoos attack with 215 yards rushing and a 10-yard touchdown reception. Quarterback Keith

Prescott ran for a touchdown, and also connected with Josh Willis on an 84-yard pass play in the third quarter. On defense, Connor Quinn has eight tackles and a sack. Rutland coach Shane Sommerfeld like his team’s effort, despite some mistakes and a lack of discipline. “We were unable to hold onto the lead at crunch time against a persistent KSS team who were able to score when they had to,” said Sommerfeld, “I thought that we controlled the clock and outplayed a strong KSS team but at the end of the day KSS ended up on top because they made fewer mistakes than we did. We were less disciplined, taking some bad penalties at crucial parts in the game.” The Voodoos return to action this Friday night when they visit the Salmon Arm Golds.

With new blades and boots, Chris was able to maintain some very high speeds and established a new personal best in all events. In the 500m, he skated a 46.00 (previous was 49.11). In the 1000m, he skated to a 1:37.10 (previous 1:42.28) and in the 1500m, he skated a 2:27.73 (previous 2:40.4). “it was a joy to watch Chris skate,” added Goplen. “He skated faster than he ever had yet still maintain control of his newfound speed.”

(Tournament MVP) Hillary Schell led all hitters throughout the entire tournament and provided some much needed veteran leadership that definitely carried the Owls to the championship.” After finishing second in pool play, the Owls downed Pen Hi 2-0 in the first round of the playoffs, then defeated Kelowna Christian 2-0 in the quarters. In the semifinals, KSS took down No. 3-ranked Clayton Heights with Schell and middle blocker Amanda Hait leading the way, along with some solid passing by libero Megan Witala and a balanced offensive attack orchestrated by Cayte Wilson.

Bantam Rockets take two at own tourney The host Kelowna Advanced Powerline Rockets posted a 2-1-1 record at the Bantam Tier 1 Fall Ice Breaker Tournament held last weekend at Memorial and Rutland Arenas. The Rockets opened the eight-team tourney Friday afternoon with a 3-1 win over West Kootenay. Kelowna then fol-

lowed up later in the night playing to a 1-1 tie with Surrey. On Saturday, the Rockets handily defeated Abbotsford 6-2 to move to within a victory of advancing to the final. But in their last round robin game Sunday morning, the Rockets came out a little flat and dropped an 8-2 decision to Tri-Cit-

ies.

“Overall, I thought they played well as a team,” said Tim Carolei, a spokesman for the Rockets. “The girls came out a bit lackluster on Sunday, Tri-Cities scored 14 seconds in and that set the tone. “All in all we’re seeing massive improvement in the team, team spirit is

good and they’re gelling very well.” In the championship final on Sunday afternoon at Memorial, Prince George defeated Tri Cities 3-0. The Rockets return to Okanagan Mainline action Saturday when they travel to Kamloops. Kelowna’s next big tournament is the Wickhenheiser International Women’s Hockey Festival next month in Buranby.

The UBC Heat men’s volleyball team finished with a 1-4 record at the 2011 Cougar Invitational hosted last weekend at the University of Regina. The Heat opened the tournament on Friday afternoon losing to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in straight

only victory of the tournament with a five set win over the Bisons (28-26, 23-25, 25-22, 24-26, 1614). The Saturday evening matchup had the UBC Heat squaring off against the Bobcats with Brandon the 2011 CIS national silver medalists, winning in four sets (25-19, 25-27, 25-11, 25-22). Sunday morning the Heat faced off versus the host University of Regina Cougars, with the host not being so gracious and sweeping the Heat in straight sets (25-15, 2519, 25-10). The weekend was about survival for the Heat as they played five matches in less than 48 hours versus top level competition. In addition to the tough schedule, they went into the tournament shorthanded as Preston Tucker and Greg Niemantsverdriet, both starters, were unable to go as they continue to rehab from injury. Greg’s shoulder woes continue to plague the third year hitter and captain Tucker has only

been performing volleyball activities for a couple of weeks. Heat coach Greg Poitras was able to utilize the number of matches in a short period of time and allow a number of players to experience the level of volleyball they are going to see this year. “The key for us was to focus on learning, and understand that there are some experienced teams out there that have been through season after season of Canada West volleyball,” said Poitras, “our (plan for this weekend) was to look at different options and get guys on the floor.” The Heat men are back in action tonight (Thursday) when they play the University of Saskatchewan Huskies in an exhibition match at 7:30 p.m. at George Elliot Secondary in Lake Country. The Heat will face off versus the Huskies again on Sunday this time at the gymnasium on UBC’s Okanagan campus at 11 a.m.

The Rockets (3-3-0) will host the North Island Silvertips on Saturday at 3 p.m., and Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Capital News Centre. The ‘Tips are 2-2-0. Okanagan is in fifth spot in the BCMML, but just two points out of top spot where there is a threeteam logjam. The Rockets are coming off a split with the Kootenay Ice last weekend in Nelson. Despite outshooting the ice 44-17 on Saturday, the Rockets lost 5-4. Justin Marreck scored twice in the loss, while Harlan Orr and captain f

Josh Ellis scored for the Rockets who were guilty of some undisciplined play. Okanagan rebounded in a big way on Sunday with a 7-0 drubbing of Kootenay. The Rockets received a pair of goals from Mitchell Cook , while Justin Marreck, Mackenzie Ferner, Parker Bowles and Drayden Larsen added singles. For Mackezie Ferner and Drayden Larsen, it was their first ever BCMML goals. Harrison Whitlock made his second start of the season in goal for the Rockets and stopped 17 shots for his first MML shutout. Whitlock is now 2-0-0 on the season with a 2.00 GAA and .907 save percentage.

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference r t

The Kelowna Skating Club and BMO Kelowna Centre for Skating Excellence were well represented over the Thanksgiving weekend at the Sask Skate Invitational and Sask Open Freeskate events. The 14 Kelowna skaters who made the trip to Saskatoon made a huge impact, returning home with seven medals in total. The Sask Skate Invitational featured top skaters from BC through Manitoba. Skaters were selected to the BC Team for the event based on results at

BC/YT Summerskate. A highlight for Team BC and the Kelowna contingent occurred in the Novice Women’s event, as local skaters swept the podium. Kelowna’s Jayda Jurome landed two triple jumps in her freeskate program in winning the event with a total of 94.37 points, while club mate Cailey England took the silver medal with 91.56. Haley Sales won bronze with 80.53 points, while Lauren Rutherglen finished in 12th in the field of 24 skaters. The Pre-Novice

Women’s event was a near photo-finish as just over seven points separated the top -sevenskaters. Less than a point shy of winning the event, Dana Bobyn finished second with a total of 78.29 points. Julianne Delaurier’s total of 76.27 was good for the bronze medal, while team mates Priscilla Sabang and Monika Randall would finish in fourth and fifth, respectively. At the Junior level, 15 year-old Makayla Randall finished less than a point off the podium with 96.44 points and a fourth place

finish. Morgan Jmaiff won the bronze medal at the Senior Women’s level, while Cambria Little finished fourth. The Pre-Juvenile Women’s event represented the first outing as representatives of Team B.C. for 10-year-old Rochelle Reeve and 11 yearold Kristen Ciurka. The young skaters rose to the challenge with good performances and solid placements of fifth and eighth, respectively, in a field of 17 skaters. Meanwhile, in the Sask Open event, Victoria

Fournier won gold in the group two event of Novice Women with a 75.68 point finish. “There were some very solid performances as well as personal milestones achieved by several of our skaters,” noted centre director Jason Mongrain. “It is very valuable in terms of testing new elements, not to mention the fact that the trip experience will help hopeful qualifiers for the Skate Canada Challenge later this year, since it will be held at Regina,” Mongrain added

One of these things is not like the other.

As a result, you’ll get better gas mileage with all-seasons and you typically get more use out of them before you have to replace them. So, my personal opinion is that everyone should have two sets of tires for their vehicle— one set for winter and one set for the rest of the seasons. Yes, I know that tires are costly, but keep this in mind: Your tires are the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road beneath you. And when you consider how fast we drive, doesn’t it make sense to have sure footing?

ately by begging a higher power to just help you get through this, and finally finish with your heart beating out of your skin and a thin sheen of sweat on your brow. But this isn’t meant to be a “roast” of the all-season tire. They too serve their purposes in every other road condition not related to snow and ice. Basically, an all-season tire is the new term that has replaced what we used to refer to as a summer tire. The tread for an allseason tire is designed to channel water away in rainy conditions so you don’t end up hydroplaning. They are also made of a harder, longer-lasting rubber, which is necessary for dry pavement and the heat that is created between your tires and the road.

I also know that most of us refer to our waistlines as spare tires, but that statement is often followed by an uncomfortable giggle and a vague mumbling along the lines of, “Boy, that sure crept up on me suddenly in the last 10 years.” But for the sake of argument (and the fact that a discussion on weight gain can be touché), today we are talking about tires for your vehicle. One of the most common questions we get at our shop is whether all tires are created equal, especially when it comes to winter tires vs. all-seasons. The short answer to that is no. Winter tires are made of a softer rubber that doesn’t turn as hard as a rock when cold. That feature is what enables you to stop significantly better in snowy

W LONG-TERM VISION

Waterfront plan adopted by council Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

District of West Kelowna council made a splash of progress by adopting an official Waterfront Plan on Tuesday. The purpose of a waterfront plan is to help guide future decision-making regarding the preservation and development of the district’s waterfront. The plan will assist the district in prioritizing short, medium and longterm investments to the waterfront and will facilitate budget planning, acquisition strategies, public realm improvements and development directions over the next 20 years. But not all of the councillors were thrilled with the document. Carol Zanon “I’m not sure where to start, but I will say that this plan has some vision, but it doesn’t have my vision,” said Coun. Carol Zanon. “It is enhancement, but it’s not economic. Parks are good but they don’t bring in the revenue. It’s another one of these living documents, so I can live with it, but I do feel very disappointed.” Coun. Gord Milsom Gord Milsom said he was satisfied with the plan. “It’s a long-term, 50-year plan and it gives us some actionable items that we can work on right away. It seems the public are in agreement with our direction,” he said. The goal of the plan is to develop a vision for the waterfront by identifying opportunities to expand the economic base and public spaces while protecting environmentally sensitive areas with and adjacent to Okanagan Lake. Mayor Doug Findlater said that he’s happy that this document is moving forward. “This has been a long haul; this has gone on 15 months. I think we’ve got a bit of a consensus or compromised document here. There are different views, different visions around this table and in the community, but I think it’s time to adopt it,” said Findlater. “It shows us a path, a way forward. Things can be changed as it goes along. There is a template here to move forward and lots of good ideas.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

The event at the Kelowna campus was held to promote how OC students will now be able to take their first two years of the four-year bachelor of science in nursing program at the college before transferring to UBC Okanagan. The province provided the post-secondary institutions with a combined $2 million to start up the program.

W LAND EXCHANGE

Lekstrom will be seeing more letters Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

B.C. Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Blair Lekstrom can expect a few more letters in his mailbox in the coming weeks. On Oct. 6, the Okanagan Basin Water Board reported that it would be sending a letter to the B.C. government, which would encourage protection of the Rose Valley Reservoir. The board stated that they are concerned that the lands should remain

in public hands to ensure ongoing protection of the reservoir’s drinking water. On Tuesday, West Kelowna council unanimously agreed to send another letter to Lekstrom, requesting him to appear before council to discuss issues surrounding the land swap. Couns. Gord Milsom and Rosalind Neis felt that more needed to be done than simply sending another letter. “It’s kind of frustrating to sit and wait and hear that they’re coming

at some point but we don’t know when that’s going to come,” said Milsom. Milsom said that it would be a good idea to consider booking a bigger venue, such as Royal LePage Place, to accommodate the large number of community members who would likely be interested in attending when Lekstrom attends. Neis suggested booking the facility immediately. She, unsuccessfully, made a motion to direct staff to pick a date and a

tion. I’m afraid, though, that it would be rejected outright,” said Coun. Bryden Winsby. “I think the government would be very unwilling to debate it in a public forum.” The letter drafted by Findlater will attempt to, once again, establish a date that Lekstrom can meet with West Kelowna council.

venue and tell the minister to attend on that date. “Minister Lekstrom has said that he’s coming. But unless there’s a date, he’s not coming. “I think his role as an elected official is to attend at the request of municipalities that have issues with regards to his ministry,” said Neis. The rest of council didn’t believe that providing the province with an ultimatum was the best course of action. “I can understand the spirit behind the sugges-

Controlling your anger at slow drivers Event to focus on health and I don’t derive sadistic pleasure from picking on my friends. But from time to time, I stumble upon a column topic when a friend shares a driving experience with me. The views I express in my column are not always complimentary about the friend’s driving behaviour or driving attitude. It doesn’t happen often enough, I don’t think, that those close to me are cautious about what they share with me in casual conversation. While I am not shy

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott about naming names in my column, I do protect a friend’s identity when using them for column topics. Only those close to me could figure out who they are. I’ve got a bit of an exception this time, and I confess that I’m feeling a bit nervous about it.

You see, even without actually naming her but referring to her as “my wife,” I’m considerably narrowing who I could be referring to. Aside from the prospect of having to set up a mattress in the shed for a few days, I rely quite heavily on my wife to help me brainstorm column topics. I’d hate to do anything to compromise her willingness to continue doing so. It was exactly in the context of trying to be helpful when I got the call. She was calling from

her vehicle. Yes, hands free, as she knows my opinions about that. Talking on a cell phone while driving is dangerous, regardless of whether or not you’re using a hands free device. It’s not your lack of access to the hand holding a handheld device that’s dangerous; it’s your lack of access to that part of your brain engaging in a conversation that is the problem. And yes, it is different from talking to someone who is in the vehicle with you. Do some research on the subject if you don’t believe me. Anyway, my wife had called excited about having a column topic for me, although I don’t know if her tone of voice at the time could better be described as “irritated” instead of “excited.” “You should write about the danger caused by people driving too slow and causing road rage,” she said. My wife had been following someone driving 40 kms/hour in a 50 kms/ hour zone, the slow driver clearly unsure of where he or she was going, slowing at intersections to read street signs. My wife had been sufficiently irritated by the slow driver to use the expression “road rage” when suggesting the column topic to me, though I trust that she had been able to contain her feelings so as not to result in any road rage driving behaviour. Can you see how I could not resist this column topic? Driving 40 in a 50 zone is not dangerous. Allowing yourself to become agitated because you are held back from driving the posted speed limit, now that’s dangerous. I brought up my wife’s suggested col-

umn topic with friends a few evenings ago, to tease my wife. A friend told of recently seeing a pickup truck riding the back wheel of a scooter that was at its full speed, 70 kms/hour, in the fast lane between Kelowna and Westbank. The scooter had temporarily gone into the fast lane to pass even slower traffic. The pick-up driver was irritated by being temporarily held back from the typically 90 kms/hour plus flow of traffic along that stretch of highway (posted limit 80 kms/hour). He showed his irritation by putting the scooter driver’s life in danger. What is it that leads many of us to have those intense feelings of irritation when another driver temporarily holds us back? How can we ever allow those feelings to cause us to behave in such dangerous ways? I challenge us all to be conscious of feelings of impatience and aggravation when driving. Consciously recognizing those feelings as they come on might be a good first step. As they arise, perhaps we can consider rationally how irrational those feelings are! Perhaps a local psychologist might step in with a letter to the editor. I can see the problem, but I have zero psychological expertise to recommend how to fix it. Perhaps some group counselling sessions might be in order. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna. paul@hlaw.ca

Fire Chief Wayne Schnitzler said the work on Crown and municipally owned land has made West Kelowna safer from the threat of forest fire, but the mitigation effort on public-owned land is only one component of wildfire prevention. “We must now continue to encourage private land owners to help in these efforts by keeping their own properties clear of forest fire debris,” said Schnitzler. “The fire department is able to come out to homes in West Kelowna and conduct assessments that will help residents prioritize the work that can be done to guard their properties against forest fire.” Property owners can call 250-769-1640 (ext. 5) to schedule an assessment, which will assist in prioritizing forest fuel mitigation work.

W BALLET KELOWNA

Performance that will shatter stereotypes

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

KELOWNA MUSICIAN Dan Bremnes is heading out on the road for a tour of Alberta. He will return for a concert in Kelowna on Nov. 3.

W CHRISTIAN ROCK

Kelowna singer finds his musical niche Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Ask Kelowna-based musician Dan Bremnes about his first big gig and he’ll tell you only about 10 people showed up. He was playing a sideline show for Avalanche, an event held here in Kelowna, though he was still living in his native Salmon Arm. Ed’s Private Jet, later renamed Stutterfly and more recently Secret and Whisper, were also on the bill, as was Greg Sczebel. “You wouldn’t want to learn in front of huge crowds anyway,” Bremnes says with the smile of those who’ve suffered the deafening microphone

wheeze from the performer’s side of the fence. If those little gigs in shady bars, or in his case high school hangouts, are good for anything more than uncomfortable memories, it also affirms the knowledge that such horrifying experiences might just be a thing of the past. Adding fuel to that belief for Bremnes was winning the Praise 106.5 FM Talent Search last spring. That led him to headline for Downhere and Lincoln Brewster in front of 2,000 people at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Coming out of Salmon Arm, Bremnes says his journey into the Christian Rock genre has been

a very smooth road and a natural way for him to get noticed as a musician as his father is a preacher in the Living Waters Church in their town; so he’s more likely to have the connections. “I guess the songs came out of my life and what was going on in my life. My faith is a huge part of my life, so it just makes sense,” he says. He grew up playing shows with Sczebel, a gospel musician whose second album won Christian/Gospel Album of the year at the 2011 Juno Awards, and Kamloopsbased Heather Clark, a top touring Christian artist who plays Europe and the U.S.

Now with six nominations for the Canadian Gospel Music Awards and a nomination for a Western Canadian Music Award to his own name, Bremnes is certainly establishing himself as a force in the genre. Playing Kelowna on Nov. 2 with Jodi King, Bremnes said he’s looking forward to doing music full-time out of the Central Okanagan. Both he and his wife relocated to the area after touring Australia earlier this year in order to find work. But since the music has gone so well for him of late, he recently gave up serving at Eastside Mario’s to tackle his real

passion while his wife runs a wedding photography business here in town (Bremnesphotography.com). “This has been the dream for a long time, so it’s pretty exciting,” Bremnes said. He noted that Eastside Mario’s was as accommodating an employer as he could ever have hoped for as he tried to get his music career off the ground. To check out his music on line fans can go to www.danbremenes.com. The concert in Kelowna takes place Nov. 3 at The House, 1-240 Lougheed Rd. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

“You can’t turn your TV on these days without realizing the remarkable resurgence of dance. It’s a prime time favourite, but even better, now we can watch that energy and athleticism come alive on our own stage.” That is how Jamie Maw, president of Ballet Kelowna, views the start of the 2011-12 season by smashing the stereotypes of ballet with a mosaic of dances in the ballet dance production Breaking Boundaries. “Expect vivid interpretations and lasting impressions,” said Ballet Kelowna artistic director David LaHay. LaHay said he has assembled this collection of performances not only to showcase the talent of Ballet Kelowna’s professional corps of dancers but also to encourage “our growing audience that is highly receptive to innovation.” And Breaking Boundaries is shaping up to be innovative. This year’s newest commission, North Shore by Montreal choreographer Shawn Hounsell, is an avantgarde work of intense physicality and passion that challenges the deep and complex music of British composer Gavin Bryars. Le Blanc, by Paul Destrooper, presents a light-hearted look into an auspicious park bench meeting where a couple meets, flirts and then falls in love. Combining lyrical and neo-classical choreography, D.A. Hoskins’ work gives audiences a modern but sophisticated dance paired with Ralph Vaughan Williams’ hauntingly beautiful music in The Lark Ascending. The timeless and classical choreography of Marius Petipa will mesmerize audiences with its physical and technical demands with an exciting pas de deux from Don Quixote. And inspired by composer Benjamin Britten’s homage to his music teacher Frank Bridge, Lahay has created a new work that sees classical technique made edgier with neo-classical and jazz based nuances. “I’m so very excited that our dancers are being challenged with this new energy, from some of today’s most dynamic and innovative Canadian choreographers,” enthused LaHay. “From the transcendentally uplifting modern choreography of The Lark Ascending to the physically and emotionally demanding movement of North Shore, Breaking Boundaries is what today’s dance is all about —finding new and relevant ways to explore universal themes.” This year, Ballet Kelowna subscribers will see a full entertainment starting with Breaking Boundaries and followed by The Nutcracker, presented with The Canadian School of Ballet, the National Ballet of Cuba on their North American tour and the Kelowna BalSee Shatter B4

Getting involved in the political process will increase your knowledge and enthusiasm for our democratic process. Does this sound scary? Maybe you have no idea about the kinds of things you can do as a volunteer between now and Nov. 19. Here are some ideas: Many candidates have campaign offices. You could greet visitors, answer phones, help with mail outs and hand out promotion materials. You could receive training and field questions.

If your forte is in the kitchen, why not bake or bring fruit to keep the other volunteers going? Signs need to be erected before the election and then collected again afterwards. You can skip your workout at the gym on sign moving days. Door-to-door canvassers typically work in pairs and speak to people at their homes about the candidate. Materials are given out and questions can be recorded for the candidate to answer. You will receive training if this type of volunteering is new to you. Are you very personable on the phone? There is a role for you in calling previously identified supporters of the candidate to provide information and to encourage them to vote. Again, training will be provided. Have car will travel— on election day, you could pick up voters, drive them to the polls and return them home. A valid driver’s license and vehicle are required.

Award for Packinghouse The Laurel Packinghouse rehabilitation project has been recognized with an Award of Honour from Heritage B.C. The Heritage Conservation Award of Honour was presented to the City of Kelowna, Kelowna Museums Society, architect Jim Meiklejohn and Sawchuck Developments at a ceremony held at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby on Sept. 30. “It was very gratifying to be recognized for this complex project,” said Randy Cleveland, director of infrastructure planning for the City of Kelowna. “Heritage B.C. recognized how challenging it was to complete the necessary structural upgrades while maintaining— and in many cases improving—the heritage components of the Laurel Packinghouse.” The $2.5-million renovation and transformation of the historic building located in the heart of the Cultural District re-opened to the public in November 2010 after a year of renovation work. A structural review in 2008 determined that the building was not structurally sound. The work included strengthening the overall structure while creating more

public space and improved conditions for the museum exhibitions. “The rehabilitation really managed to balance the old with the new,” said Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd. “This is Kelowna’s original heritage property and it was extremely important to make sure it was preserved for future generations, while continuing to be a comfortable gathering place in our Cultural District.” Built in 1917, The Laurel Packinghouse is one of the oldest packing houses in Western Canada. It was originally constructed from bricks made of clay from Knox Mountain and operated as a fruit packinghouse into the 1970s. It is a nationally designated heritage landmark that now offers meeting spaces and is home to the B.C. Orchard Industry and B.C. Wine Museums and VQA Wine Shop. What wasn’t added, however, was air conditioning, something noted during the summer by several people including Mayor Sharon Shepherd.

W NEW MOVIES

Spotlight shines on bird watching MOVIE GUY

F

Grand 10 Landmark

Rick Davis

or those of you that have been demanding a movie about ornithology, The Big Year is for you. This new comedy is the story of three bird watchers played by Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, each of whom is suffering a different personal crisis. Their common solution is to go on a yearlong misadventure on a quest to outdo each other by finding the most species of birds in North America. Filmed in the Lower Mainland and partially in Osoyoos, The Big Year’s impressive cast also includes Anjelica Huston, Jim Parsons, JoBeth Williams, Brian Dennehy, Rashida Jones, Joel McHale and Diane Wiest. Rated General with a warning of coarse language. It is hard to believe that the original Footloose was released almost 30 years ago. However, a recent news story about a New Hampshire high school banning dances seems to indicate that the subject matter is still timely. The story is the same as the original about a city boy who moves to a conservative small town that has banned dancing a rock music. r Newcomer Kenny Wormald takes on the iconic Kevin Bacon role with Julianne Hough (Dancing With the Stars), Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell rounding out the cast. Rated PG with a warning of violence and coarse language. Although The Thing may seem like a remake of the 1982 John Carpenter classic (which in turn was a remake of the 1951 original), this latest version is actually a prequel, taking place immediately prior to its namesake. The story follows a team of Norwegian and American scientists who discover an alien buried rdeep in the ice of Antarctica, realizing too late that it is still alive and is consuming and imitating the team members. t The producers, who

Steen from B6 ventures of Tintin (due out December 23) and War Horse , due out in December as well. In 2012 he’ll give us Men In Black 111 and Lincoln. He’s a busy guy. One of the best lines in the film, is from a dialogue with Max and Charlie: Max: “You sold me.” Charlie: “ It sounds worse than it is.” Real Steel has an easy 5 reels and while there is some swearing, it’s rated PG-13 and it will leave you smiling and good news, no humans were injured in the making of this movie…well maybe a couple of fight scenes, but no bones were broken.

Would you like to feature your business in ‘Discover West Kelowna’? Call Sheri Jackson, 250-864-1259

Yet another new addition to West Kelowna’s growing commercial core was the grand opening of the new Future Shop store last Friday morning at 3600 Carrington Rd. just off Highway 97 within a new Westbank First Nations commercial development. The new store is the 149th store in the Future Shop chain, and the second in the Central Okanagan. As part of the ribbon cutting festivities, a $5,000 donation was made by Future Shop to the Okanagan Boys & Girls Club.

CLOCKWISE from bottom left: Westside First Nations band councillor Mickey Werstuik handles the ribbon cutting chore to officially open the new Future Shop in West Kelowna; the lineup to get into the store last Friday morning; Jacob Bown and Mike Bown were among the first in line; Reid Pratley brought along a blanket and chair to be comfortable after arriving at 11 p.m. on Thursday to take up his place at the front of the line; Future Shop staff were excited about the new store opening and the opportunity it provided them to find jobs.
