Charged cop gives a not guilty plea Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
The Kelowna cop charged with assault after being caught on video kicking a suspect in the head was “thrown under the bus” by higher ranking police officials, says his defence lawyer. “Quite frankly, I expect more from people of the rank of superintendent and deputy commissioner than to look at 30 to 45 seconds of video and take that as the complete story,” said Const. Geoff Mantler’s lawyer, Neville McDougall, outside the Kelowna courthouse Tuesday afternoon. Minutes earlier, McDougall entered pleas of not guilty for assault charges relating to an Aug. 30, 2010, incident involving Mantler and Majit Singh Bhatti as well as the Buddy Tavares case, which took place in January. While little has been made public regarding the Bhatti matter, Mantler became a lightning rod for criticism of the RCMP after he was filmed kicking Tavares in the head during an arrest. That footage was posted to YouTube and picked up by national, as well as local, media sources and became fodder for protests against alleged police brutality. Mantler was suspended from duty Jan. 10, just a few days after the video footage went viral, and in May the RCMP decided to suspend his pay as Crown counsel pursued criminal charges. A code of conduct review is ongoing. “The consensus amongst a lot of (RCMP) members was that Geoff Mantler was thrown under the bus based on public perception and trying to maintain the integrity of the RCMP as a unit as opposed to what he was acting on that day,” said McDougall, pointing out that there was a lot more to the story than the brief video clip could convey. “There’s been a lot of miscommunication as to what the nature of the call was and what the RCMP were responding to. There’s been no discussion as to supervision provided to these junior members.” The most senior police members who went to Harvest Golf Club in response to reports that shots were fired, for example, had just over three years experience.

Animal distress complaints on the rise Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
Kelowna residents are being hyper vigilant when it comes to notifying police about anything they see trapped in a hot car. And according to one Mountie who was called to a “dog in distress” report Wednesday morning, it’s always the right thing to do—even if the crea-
ture trapped isn’t quite distressed. “Obviously we care about safety first,” said Corp. Kris Clark, during an overcast portion of Wednesday morning. “Today, already, we’ve had two or three calls. Since the dog perished, and the child was stuck in the hot car, people have been calling in more.” In this case, police offi-
cers went to all the nearby stores to find the owners of the truck, which had housed a blue healer puppy that was panting up a storm. The search lasted 10 minutes until they found the owners of the truck, a couple visiting here from Hinton, Alta. They were more than surprised to see the gathering of police and media as
they headed to their truck. When they opened a door to the truck cab, the puppy trundled out, greeted the small crowd that gathered and rolled on its back for a tummy-rub. “Upon getting out of the truck, the dog seemed to be fine,” said Clark. “It isn’t a hot day, but if it was left longer it could have been in serious distress.” Clark pointed out that
the family in the shop were on their way out the door when the police came to get them, but it’s always a better policy to leave your dog at home if you have to do some shopping. If they had, there would have been no need for two police officers and a regional district bylaw official to attend the scene. email@example.com

Advocate for homeless says city on right track Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR
An activist from the United States says Kelowna appears to be taking the right steps in battling the problem of homelessness here. Mark Horvath, who’s web site, invisiblepeople.tv, has become a wellknown portal for publicizing the stories of people living on the streets in the United States, is currently on a cross-Canada tour looking at the issue of homelessness in this country. While in Canada, he is talking to people living on the streets and to those who are trying to help them. “From what I saw, you guys are already doing what I talked about (prior to his visit),” said Horvath after touring several shelters, subsidized housing facilities and a camp where several homeless people live. He feels groups need to work together to do more than simply provide food. He pointed to partnerships here that have resulted in subsidized housing projects such as Cardington Apartments downtown and White Buffalo Lodge, a former motel in the Mission. He said many of the homeless people he met here Tuesday agreed to tell their stories on camera and that footage will likely appear on his web site.
Horvath, who worked as a television producer in California prior to losing his job and his home in 1995, said he does not have an agenda other than enabling people on the streets to tell their stories to a wider audience. That, he said, helps raise awareness in the rest of the community and translates into help for those who need it. He said last year two million people viewed his videos on You Tube. “That’s two million people who would have never rolled down their window at an exit ramp,” said Horvath. He believes his raw, unedited footage of people telling their stories in their own words will help end homelessness in both Canada and the United States one day. “And, I do believe we can end homeless,” said Horvath. After visiting Victoria and Vancouver late last week and on the weekend, Horvath arrived in Kelowna Tuesday and said he was surprised to see two obviously homeless people pushing shopping carts in what looked to him to be in a fairly affluent community. “They looked out of place,” he said. Based on his background, Horvath has a good handle on what is valuable to homeless people and he uses that to help win over their trust. One

HOMELESS activist Mark Horvath hopes his website, which tells the stories of homeless people he encounters across North America in unedited video footage, will help end homelessness in Canada and the U.S. of the highest prized commodities for people on the streets, he said, are socks. “They are like gold.” So, sock maker Hanes provides him with hundreds of pairs to give away when he meets people. He said the idea came to him after seeing five different, well-meaning
church groups all provide food for the homeless in a New York park on the same day. “They were all feeding the same people.” he said. A good pair of socks, he said, can go much farther than a sandwich for a homeless person. From Kelowna, Hor-
vath headed to Calgary and will travel across the country between now and the end of September, meeting people and filming their stories as he goes. But he said, often the best stories he hears are the one he does not get to record because the people
do not want to appear on camera. Horvath said he would like to see a national group mobilized in Canada that will coordinate projects at the national level to help fight homelessness. firstname.lastname@example.org
Homeless man is mugged One male is facing a charge of robbery after a homeless man was mugged while riding his bike on Cawston Avenue near Ellis Street on Tuesday evening. The 53-year-old robbery victim was approached by two males at about 10:30 p.m., and asked if he had a cigarette. The victim stated he had none and some more small talk ensued. When asked if he had any money, the victim again replied he did not, after which one of the males produced a black handgun and pointed it at the victim demanding the victim’s wallet. The victim replied that he was homeless and had no money. The two males then walked away. The shaken victim flagged down a city bylaw officer who then called police. With a description of the suspects in hand, a police search of the immediate area located the two male suspects. Police recovered a replica handgun from one male. The other male was released without charge. An 18-year-old Kelowna male appeared in court Wednesday to face charges of robbery and breach of undertaking. He is known to police from previous Criminal Code related offences.
Young girl gets propositioned at her lemonade stand A nine-year-old girl running a lemonade stand in front of her Kelowna home was propositioned by an older man, prompting local Mounties to remind parents to keep a close eye on their children.

outside their home in the 500 block of Ziprick Road on Tuesday night when a late ’80s or early ’90s grey pickup truck with a grey canopy pulled up near the lemonade stand on the opposite side of the road, said Const. Steve Holmes. “The male driver got out, walked across the road to the stand and
bought some lemonade from the girls,” said Holmes. “He then offered the nine-year-old $5 if she would go with him and take some pictures. The girl refused and so the man got back into his truck and drove off.” The girl’s father had been supervising but had momentarily gone in-
side the house, which is when the incident took place. The man was described as being Caucasian, in his 60s with short gray hair, a dark beard and had a noticeable belly. He was wearing a grey -shirt with the letters CSI on the front, and dark pants.
“The man did not attempt to force the girl to go with him. No licence plate number was obtained. Police scoured the area for the truck but did not find it,” said Holmes. If anyone has any information about this incident or has had a similar experience, please call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Upsized seniors’ centre endorsed by city council Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR
Kelowna’s new $4-million seniors’ centre is growing in size—and it’s not even built yet. Following complaints that the proposed new building—dubbed a “multiage activity centre”—would be too small for many of the activities currently held at the existing downtown seniors’ centre, council found another $600,000 for the new building in the spring. Revised plans now call for a facility 2,000-square-feet bigger than the one it is replacing. The new centre will be a two-storey, 132,000-square-foot building, located beside the Parkinson Recreation Centre. The existing lakefront seniors’ centre downtown is slated to be demolished to make way for an expansion of the Kelowna Yacht Club. Kristine Bouw, the city’s architectural planner, said some of the extra space will enlarge the new building’s main hall by 835-square-feet to 3,451-square-feet, plenty of room for several different configurations such as two pickleball courts, six carpet bowling mats, banquet seating for 150 or 36 tables for bridge. “We have talked to various groups at the (existing) senior’s centre to get input,” said Bouw. Two years ago, the city decided to relocate the seniors centre to the grounds of the Parkinson Recreation Centre but the initial design raised concerns from seniors because it was considered a smaller overall space than the one they were giving up. Seniors groups said the proposed main hall could not accommodate some of the old centre’s most popular events. In May, the city pledged more money for the new facility and sent its designers back to make changes. In addition to the large main hall, the new centre will also have a full-service kitchen, a lounge area, plenty of storage, a billiards room, more washrooms than the original plan, an activity room and an elevator to connect the two floors. It will have sliding doors for easier
access and will have large glass windows and doors on the west side that will open onto the grounds of the recreation centre across from Mill Creek. Engineers are currently working on a suspended wood floor concept for the man hall to allow for a surface that not only can accommodate dancing but will also allow for the radiant heating system pipes beneath it. The centre is planned to be a “green” building in its design, construction and operation and also universally accessible. Bouw described it as a “high performance” building, noting the mechanical parts are integral to the design, not just add-ons, which is often the case in other buildings. The new centre will feature two fiveton water heat pumps to create chilled water in the summer and hot water in the winter, passive solar heating and ventilation, operable windows and user controls with sensors and radiant floor heating. It will feature plenty of natural light through the extensive use of glass. Bouw’s description of what is planned was greeted with enthusiasm by council Monday afternoon. Calling the revised plan very good, Coun. Robert Hobson said “reasonable people” will view the changes as an improvement. “It really does meet most of the concerns (expressed by seniors after the first design was made public),” said Hobson. Coun. Kevin Craig noted the extensive consultations that went into the new plan. The city met with many of the groups that use the existing centre, with the local accessibility advisory committee, seniors representatives and others in developing the revised design. The detailed design and construction drawings for the new centre will now be completed and the construction contract tender put out for bid later this summer. The contract is expected to be awarded in the fall with construction taking an estimated 10 months. The building is slated to open in September 2012. email@example.com

Mantler’s not guilty plea a shock Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
The Kelowna man who reluctantly became the rallying point for an outcry against police brutality says he was shocked to learn that Const. Geoff Mantler entered a plea of not guilty for the charge of assault causing bodily harm. “A picture is worth a thousand words. The entire world has seen this, and the world has their opinion,” said Buddy Tavares, making reference to video footage of Mantler kicking him while he was
Buddy Tavares on all fours, during a Jan. 7 arrest. Charges were levied against Tavares after he was apprehended but were later dropped, while Mantler’s legal troubles
have continued. “Myself, if I was in his shoes, I would have plea bargained with the Crown and I would have made a deal,” he said. What’s more galling to Tavares, however, is the notion Mantler has somehow been treated unfairly, reacting to Mantler’s lawyer saying his client has been “thrown under the bus” in the months since the incident occurred. “There was a pretty serious smear campaign against me too,” said Tavares pointing to RCMP comments after the arrest, alleging that it was some-
how linked to domestic violence between Tavares and his wife. “I understand the guy is scrambling for his livelihood, which is gone, but my personal feeling is there are just things you can’t do and can’t say, because they’re wrong.” In the last six months Tavares said he’s worked to get his health back to where it was before he was arrested. He was still healing from a significant motorcycle accident at that time and had a severe head injury. “I’m still struggling to go back to where I was,” he said.

sarily mean it’s criminal,” he said. A court date for the Bhatti charge will be set July 19, while the Tavares case won’t be scheduled until a pre-trial hearing has concluded. Meantime, Tavares is moving forward with a civil suit in which he accuses Mantler, the B.C. government, the City of Kelowna and another unnamed female officer of negligence and misconduct. The legal documents, filed with the court June 24, said the officers pulled Tavares over as he was leaving Harvest Golf Club, ordered him from his vehicle at gunpoint and told him to lie on the ground. “The defendants used
oppressive, arbitrary, unconstitutional, malicious, high-handed, reprehensible and/or oppressive actions in the assault and battery, or negligence,” reads the civil lawsuit file. The document also lists injuries to Tavares, such as a broken nose and injuries to his mouth, teeth and brain, as well as shock and trauma. “The plaintiff suffered loss of dignity and humiliation resulting from the defendant’s conduct,” states the lawsuit file. Tavares is looking for a payout for damages, as well as payment for loss of income both past and prospective. A charge brought against Tavares on the day of his arrest was dropped. firstname.lastname@example.org

‘Mythbuskers’ set out to test hypothesis at local busker stops
Tree topper takes a fall
Kelowna musician and instrument-maker Clive Titmuss recently got a widely circulated email that aroused his curiosity. World-famous violinist Joshua Bell was commissioned by a writer at the Washington Post to play Bach during morning rush hour in a commuter rail station on his priceless Stradivarius. The writer wondered if this accomplished musician would draw a crowd, make any money, and/ or be recognized? Would harried, stressed Washingtonians on their way to work be sensitive to the beauty of what he does so brilliantly? The answer was a bit of a shock. Bell’s crowd never exceeded a handful of people, only one person recognized him and he made $32. The previous evening he had been paid about $1,000 per minute to play a violin concerto before Washington’s elite. The stunt and the ensuing story won the writer a Pulitzer prize for journalism, and Bell got a notable mention in the Wikipedia article on the history of busking. The whole thing caused quite a splash and the story went viral. But Titmuss was not surprised at the result. “You take away the context of music performance—the stage, the publicity, the admission cost, not to mention the expensive building—and you have no performance, no music, no perception of beauty,” he said. “Without the expectation and the favourable conditions, experienced musicians know that music can’t really happen. Great music is not street theatre.” But upon further thought, an idea formed in his mind: What if you changed the instrument, the venue and the dress, and publicized it as a performance event in public? What if you played in a park, or on the street? It seemed like the perfect opportunity to conduct an experiment, find out which factors really matter to stage a performance/art event. So Titmuss and his colleague Alan Rinehart, fresh from a successful tour of their Two Man Guitar Festival, thought
A self-employed Kelowna man suffered serious injuries on Monday when he fell 50-feet while topping a tree. “Police were called to a residence, in the 1000 block of Devon Court in West Kelowna, at 2 p.m. to assist the B.C. Ambulance Service at the scene,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “Witnesses advised that the tree faller was topping a very large pine tree and had harnessed himself approximately 50-feet up the tree.” The 25-year-old faller had cut through most of the tree, which then
pinched the chainsaw. As he pushed the top of the tree over, it kicked back as it fell. “It is believed that at that point the harness may have broken, or come loose, causing the man to fall,” said Holmes. The man was transported to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment of undetermined but possibly life threatening injuries. His current condition is unknown. The investigation as to confirmed cause and circumstance is now in the hands of Worksafe B.C.
Ogopogo greets Royal couple Ogopogo caught the eye of Royalty at the Calgary Stampede. The city’s parade float, which features a likeness of the legendary Okanagan Lake monster, was named the third best float in the municipal section of the
Stampede Parade held last Friday. The parade was watched by about 425,000 people, including Prince William and his wife Catherine. The city float generated big cheers all along the
parade route. The Kelowna float has won an award at every parade it has attended this year. Next up for the float will be to participate July 31 in the White Rock Spirit of the Sea Festival Parade.
KELOWNA BUSKERS Clive Titmuss and Alan Rinehart want to keep a close tab this month on what response they receive performing around the city. they’d get a busking permit, set up their music stands and have at it during the month of July. Would local residents and tourists, shoppers and workers, kids and dogs want to listen to great music played on fine instruments—hand-made, period guitars and lutes —without the usual trappings of performance?
Or would they be largely ignored? They decided to test the Joshua Bell hypothesis: Without the usual cues, are people sensitive to random acts of beauty? So if you’re out there in the park or on the street, you feel a little down and you need a bit of beautiful music to cheer you up, look for the Mythbuskers.

Is it time to end ICBC’s monopoly?
he latest proposal from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is another clear indication that the Crown corporation is reaching the end of the road in its ability to properly serve the province’s motorists. ICBC announced this week that it has notified the B.C. Utilities Commission that it plans to apply for a rate hike. “What’s happened really is the economy has rebounded a lot faster than most people have expected. That’s put more cars
on the road,” ICBC spokesman Mark Jan Vrem told the media. He also pointed to an increase in bodily-injury claims as a result of wet weather. It’s reassuring to note that after a mere three-plus decades in operation, ICBC has come to the realization that it rains a bit in Vancouver. And while most, if not all, businesses would celebrate an economic rebound and additional customers, ICBC apparently sees it as a negative. However, that stance gives rise to a very simple solution: If
ICBC is troubled by an increase in drivers, perhaps the time has come to end the corporation’s monopoly on basic insurance coverage. The latest news comes less than two months after Christy Clark’s Liberal government shot down ICBC’s proposal to increase insurance rates for drivers who receive as little as a single speeding ticket. While those measures seemed excessive, they were imminently more fair than the proposal that will be put before the
BCUC. Because rain or shine, on roads crowded or deserted, drivers with spotless records are less likely to be the cause on an accident. The concept seems simple enough, but it’s one that’s apparently lost on ICBC. While the corporation has steadily increased rates on drivers found at fault in a collision, this latest proposed hike will take safe drivers along for the ride. The time has come to see if private companies can provide the service at a better value to the

Vulnerability of children to twisted adults hard to understand
s it really a more dangerous world for kids to grow up in today compared to 20 or 30 years ago, or are we just more aware of what’s really going on around us? That questions comes to mind every time you hear about adults taking advantage of children in a criminal or deviate manner. As I walked out the door for work on Wednesday morning, my wife was watching The View, in which the four regular panellists and a guest were debating the murder of boy in New York City. In that tragic story, a Brooklyn man was arrested early Wednesday after he “panicked” and allegedly dismembered the body of an eight-yearold Hasidic boy who had been previ-
ously reported missing after having left school, walking home alone. A 35-year-old Jewish man has been arrested, accused of murdering the boy and dismembering his body in order to hide the evidence of his crime. As usual, The View gals were all screaming at the top of their lungs, each trying to explain why these crimes seem so prevalent in our society today, and what parents can or should do to prevent it. Some of the ideas tossed out were the menace of Facebook making our lives too public, easy prey for
child stalkers; both parents working and less supervision at home; not monitoring our kids’ action close enough outside the home; it’s the fault of Barry daytime talk shows in Gerding the ‘80s like Oprah and Donahue that openly talked about these issues, thereby encouraging adults to pursue those feelings—the usual suspect reasons that raise more questions than answers. And this comes on the heels of revelations on TV this week from 31year-old Jaycee Duggan, who was abducted by a sex offender for 18 years
in his backyard and gave birth to two children without any medical supervision. As a parent, you ask yourself how can these things be allowed to happen? Is child stalking becoming worse or are we just hearing about it more than we used to? Since I moved here 11 years ago, there have been times when I was driving home after midnight on a weekend in both Kelowna or West Kelowna, surprised at how many teenagers I would see walking the streets alone at that time of the night. Why are they out there by themselves late at night? Where are their parents? Knowing a teenager who had the unfortunate experience of a male pull-
ing up to the bus stop on Highway 97 and dropping his drawers right in front of her, than taking off with his accomplice driver, I was reminded that the Central Okanagan is no different from anywhere else when it comes to the wacky fringe. With two young toddlers of my own now, you find yourself being very attentive to what they’re doing at all times. Perhaps that will change as they get older, but I’m afraid trying to keep them out of harm’s way will never stop being a full-time job.

HST turns independent British Columbia into a â€˜federal droneâ€™ To the editor: I would like to think that even if I was a small business owner who was enjoying a modest (at best) benefit from the HST being in place, I would still exercise my responsibility as a British Columbian and vote â€œyesâ€? to extinguish the anti-democratic tax. Cast aside all other issues that have been dragged through the mud over the last months. Who cares if youâ€™re a Liberal, Conservative, New Democrat or Green? Who cares if you like or loathe Gordon Campbell, Adrian Dix, Bill Vander Zalm or Christy Clark? It is all irrelevant to the two fundamental problems that the current HST represents. First: As democratic citizens, if we accept the imposition and continuation of the HST in B.C., we are telling the current government
and all that follow in this province that it is acceptable to betray the trust of the people and that British Columbians donâ€™t mind a reality where the province masquerades as a democracy when in truth it is a dictatorship. Second: The â€œbeautyâ€? of the PST (if there is such a thing when it comes to taxes) is that monies collected via the PST are controlled by our provincial government. Are we really that naive to believe that Ottawa is offering up the HST and then even trying to temporarily sweeten the deal by lowering it to 10 per cent all because they have British Columbianâ€™s best interest in mind? If the HST remains, British Columbians will inevitably look back at this point in our provinceâ€™s historyâ€”a moment where the balance of control shifted completely away from
our own backyard to Ottawaâ€”and realize remorsefully that support of the HST severed our provinceâ€™s autonomy and turned us into a federal drone. Yes, the GST/PST system seems more costly at first glance, but it is a small price to pay for transparency: GST is money for Ottawa, PST is money for B.C. The HST has no transparencyâ€”from its inception to infancy, it promises to keep British Columbians in the dark as to where our tax dollars are going and how much is truly staying in our province. Protect B.C.â€™s identity as a distinct province of Canadaâ€”vote â€œyesâ€? to extinguish the HST. Jim Durose, Kelowna
â–ź DEBATE FOR â€˜NOâ€™
Former MPâ€™s thoughts on PST/GST vs HST To the editor: With the harmonized sales tax (HST) referendum decision now just weeks away, British Columbians are faced with a unique and historic decision, a choice of whether they want to pay less or more tax. Itâ€™s a choice that will affect each and every family, business and bank account across the province, and represents one of the most important public decisions in B.C.â€™s recent history. It would be easy for me to simply stay out of the HST debate. After all, the move to harmonize was a provincial initiative, not a federal one. Added
to that is the anger felt by many about the way the province went about implementing it. Gordon Campbell, who was a key player in turning B.C.â€™s economy around several years ago, is the first to admit the public communication side of the HST was not conducted well. So you may ask, why am I commenting? Many people have been asking for my perspective on the HST, especially as a former provincial finance minister who lowered taxes. I decided that the issue is far too important to stay silent on, especially with so many British Columbians angry
about it. I firmly believe that a decision of this importance should be based on cold, hard factsâ€”not raw emotion. The economic reality is this: Individuals and families will be better off by having the HST in place as recently amended by Premier Christy Clark. British Columbians need to understand the real ramifications of bringing back an old, antiquated tax system. There is too much at stake for B.C. families and businesses to risk voting for a higher, 12 per cent PST/GST. Bottom line: The HST benefits all British Columbians:
Âˇ The HST will drop two points to 10 per cent Âˇ The average B.C. family will save $120 more a year Âˇ Children and seniors will receive $175 transition cheques Âˇ Rebate payments of up to $230 will be put into the hands of lower-income families Âˇ 24,400 new jobs will be created by the end of the decade. Reverting back to the PST/GST system would take away every one of these personal benefits. It would hurt B.C.â€™s economy and leave less money in the wallet of every B.C. family. Voting to return to the
PST-GST is a giant step backward that B.C. residents will have to bear for years to come. Thank you for giving this your thoughtful consideration, even though you may be one of the many who is upset with the situation. As someone who loves this beautiful province, I simply want what is best for our future and for our childrenâ€™s future. Whichever way you decide to vote, I hope this will also be your guiding motivation. Stockwell Day, Peachland
Plenty of land to develop in South Pandosy To the editor: Re: Cedar Avenue lakeside park/commercial development proposal. Once again, Kelowna council fails to act positively on the wishes of the thousands who feel betrayed if any part of their lakeside property is used for commercial development. In deferring meaningful decisions for one reason and another council, very likely, hopes we will all go away, exhaust our opposition, or simply expire. New council suggestions still include overpowering commercial exploitation. Doing the right thing for the whole of Kelowna must be the immediate rezoning (phase one and
phase two) from C9 (commercial) to P3 (parkland). Doing otherwise will only spark years more of city manipulation, deferment, public expense and argument over the overriding importance of more, rather than less, lakeside green space. This property acquisition by an earlier visionary council should now be honoured in its original intent. If you havenâ€™t already done so, take a walk along the beach in question. It encompasses an entire bay with a magnificent southern view. Itâ€™s an example of earlier unobstructed, pristine outlooks along our lake. From Cedar Avenue go north on Abbott Street and note the blocks to the eastâ€”across from this park opportun-
ity. They are ripe for commercial development. Build thereâ€”allow the great and progressive South Pandosy rejuvenation to provide all the amenities the city is touting but, unlike the city plan, with no obstruction. Imagine the green oasis for all residents as well as the many more who soon will be and already are living in this area. Add to that the tourists who crowd the beaches in season. Call your councillors, or send a letter. The purchase of future lakeshore properties to replace what we already own will be exorbitant. If they cannot widen their perspective on this most important issue we will have the opportunity, at the upcoming civic
election, to choose a council who might seriously listen. One, perhaps, with a better understanding of the importance of rescuing such a great park op-
portunity from commercial development. Joy Lambrick, Kelowna

Eurasian milfoil mechanical harvesters on a tighter leash Newly uncovered environmentally sensitive areas now restricting milfoil control program. The Okanagan Basin Water Board continues to fight the same battles up and down the valley and has a few new fronts as well. Anna Warwick Sears, OBWB executive director, told District of West Kelowna councillors Tuesday that new regulations and staff at the B.C. Ministry of Environment are making the job of controlling Eurasian milfoil more difficult. The OBWB uses expensive machines to harvest the milfoil but new regulations prevent them from going within a half kilometre of previously unknown sensitive areas. Mayor Doug Findlater said he would write a letter to the province supporting the continued use of the mechanical harvesters and stressing the importance of clean beaches to tourism. The problem is also heightened by the fact that the American approach to the problem is heavy use of herbicides. On the U.S. side of Osoyoos Lake, water authorities have applied to begin a herbicide treatment, something the OBWB is trying to fight.

Local businesses now have access to a comprehensive guide that provides information on how to create a business environment that is safe and comfortable for seniors. Creating an Agefriendly Business in B.C. is a collaborative release between the ministry of health and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. The guide is designed to help new and prospective business owners ensure their businesses are age-friendly. It includes information on how businesses
can provide an environment of safety, comfort, visibility and respect for older customers. The guide also includes examples of best practices from existing businesses and an assessment tool to help business operators determine if their business is agefriendly and learn how to make improvements. Signs of an age-friendly business include: â€˘ Wider aisles and uncluttered pathways to better accommodate walkers and wheelchairs â€˘ A place for customers

Since 2007, the B.C. Ministry of Health has supported communities across B.C. by providing tools to help them respond to an aging population. Examples of agefriendly community changes include widening sidewalks, installing benches, maximizing green space, or making programs and services more accessible to the older population.
eniors can often experience vein problems in their
legs. One of the first signs of trouble with veins is if your legs feel heavy or swollen in the evening. This could be an indicator of venous insufficiency, which is a widespread disease that often goes unrecognized. The impaired blood transport in the venous system for the legs results in poorer blood supply to the bodyâ€™s tissues. The result is that the skin on the lower leg becomes a discoloured brown, becomes thinner and is susceptible to infection. Minor injuries no longer heal completely while leg ulcers can also develop. Seniors with the ini-
Sharen Marteny tial symptoms of venous insufficiency should become active and wear medical compression stockings on a regular basis. Medical compression stockings exert precisely defined levels of pressure along the leg, which compresses the veins. This helps pump the blood back toward the heart and stops blood pooling in the legs. Compression stockings need to be prescribed by a doctor.

It is important that other medical conditions be taken into consideration prior to and during the use of the stockings. A doctor will determine what compression level would best suit the needs of each senior. Some seniors may require an ankle brachial index (ABI) to determine if they can safely go into compression stockings. Compression stockings should be considered to be medicine for the legs that is prescribed by a doctor and used as the doctor has stated. Follow-up appointments with the doctor should also be required to monitor the effectiveness of these special stockings. The prescription will state the type of stockings needed for the individual seniorâ€™s requirements. The senior should then go to a pharmacy that has trained home medical supply staff to meet with a certified fitter. These fitters are trained and knowledgeable in determining if clients need further tests to determine if they can safely wear compression stockings, and are trained to measure for these garments for the proper fit and level of need. The fitter will demonstrate the correct way to put the stockings on to en-
sure that the proper compression is at each location of the foot, ankle and calf of the leg. If the compression stockings are not put on properly, then the effectiveness is reduced as well as being uncomfortable to wear. If the compression stockings have a hole in them, they need to be replaced. Wearing rubber gloves makes it easier to put on and take off compression stockings and thereâ€™s less chance of them being damaged. The putting on and removal of compression stockings takes strength and flexibility. Rubber gloves will also help protect fragile skin of seniors during the process. Seniors who are war vets may be able to get the cost for compression stockings covered through Veterans Affairs. As well, the stockings may also be covered under an extended health care plan or used as an income tax claim as a medical expense. For further information about compression stockings, contact Dyckâ€™s Pharmacists at 250-8613466.

Boil water advisory lifted for GEID residents Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR
Residents living in parts of Glenmore have had the boil water notice issued by Glenmore Ellison Improvement District lifted. But there is still a water quality advisory in place for the area. Residents living in the Glenmore water service area, including the Wilden, Quail Ridge and UBCO areas, were being told to boil their water for at least one minute, then refrigerate it in clean covered containers if they plan on drinking it, using it to wash fruits and vegetables, make beverages or ice with it or use it to brush their teeth becuase of the failure of a chlorination machine. According to GEID, reverse osmosis filtration
was not a reliable method of removing the viral pathogens that the chlorination would have removed, so in this case it should not be relied upon. The boil water notice was lifted yesterday afternoon. Water in the area is still only rated as fair because of increased turbidity levels and people with weakened immune systems are still advised to boil their water. Prior to issuing the notice, the GEID consulted with the Interior Health. Neither the advisory nor the previous notice affect the McKinley Landing area or the terminal building at the Kelowna International Airport. A boil water notice previously issued for the Ellison and Dry Valley areas remains in effect.
Traffic cops kept busy last weekend creased traffic enforcement throughout the summer as the higher seasonal traffic volumes contribute to higher numbers of crashes and motor vehicle offences.

She placed 5th runnerup in the Highland competition, and was aggregate winner in the National Dances category. The 15-year-old Kelowna youth qualified for the championships as one of the top three dancers in B.C. for the 14 and 15 age group. She is coached locally by Deborah Ward, of Pacific Interior Pilates Inc., and is member of the Interior Highland Dance Association. As well, Nathalie Middleton, 16, also from Kelowna, danced in the Pre-championship category, winning the aggregate trophy.

The cumulative results show that: • 206 motorists were served tickets with Motor Vehicle Act charges for offences such as speeding, seat belts, intersection violations etc. • 36 motorists received written warnings • 26 drivers were given approved alcohol screening device tests that resulted in four, three-day immediate roadside prohibitions (IRP) and two 90-day IRPs. • two vehicles were impounded • there were four separate seizures of marijuana, one of which resulted in a 24-hour driving suspension.

Prairie band is living the joy in playing heavy metal angst Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
Metal heads are rarely acknowledged for their sunny outlook, but Barrett Klesko, the lead singer of All Else Fails, is an anomaly. When he and his band hit Kelowna on Saturday for the mini metal-fest at Dave's Sports Bar, they'll be channelling the deep joy that comes with being on the road into wails of discontent. “There's nothing better than losing all our money to go on the road,” said Klesko from his Edmonton home, noting one of the best parts of dishing out the cash needed to tour Western Canada is getting to see beautiful B.C. When they're not soaking in scenery, however, he along with guitar player Mike Sand, bass-
ist Seedy Mitchell and drummer Tom Wolf throw everything they have into their live performances, because that's what metal fans want to see and hear. “People don't come to shows to listen to bands, they come to watch,” he said. “Anyone who comes can expect noise and partying and all the fun stuff that comes along with being a metal band." It's a combination that continually draws in crowds, said Klesko, pointing out metal may not be dominating popular radio these days, but it's a unique genre that continually brings in new fans—especially when it's being delivered in its live format. “You have chemistry between band members that you don't have with other genres,” he said.
ALL ELSE FAILS play Dave’s Sports Bar in Kelowna on Saturday. “You have aggression like you have with punk, but metal is going to have a higher level of polish.” That said, All Else Fails is a genre-bending band that doesn't turn their
noses up at other sounds. Their heart has a metal core, but experience in everything from jazz to punk has prompted them to defy limitations. “We try not to tie our-
selves down and the guys in our band come from different backgrounds,” said Klesko. “I don't know we're pioneering a really new sound, but I don't think
there's anyone else that sounds like us.” Their last album— which was dubbed ‘A Monster of a Metal Opus’ in The Edmonton Journal—offers a dark blend of punk, metal and rock that breaks the traditional boundaries of their genre with an infusion of classical music, electronicainfluenced synth lines and spoken word sampling. The album, The Oracle, What Was, Is and Could Have Been, is still new, but it has paved the way for some newer tracks which may be revealed during their Kelowna show. “We're starting to do some punk covers,” said Klesko, noting that it's primarily skate punk they're working with. “Some songs we're taking liberties with and others we're heavying
up.” In one case they're a “metal band covering country songs as punk songs.” “It doesn't matter what kind of metal you play, it is timeless,” he said. “At the end of the day people just want to listen to loud music that pumps them up and gets them going.” The band will be onstage at Dave's Sports Bar, 155 Rutland Road South, on Saturday, July 16, starting at 8 p.m. Joining them will be metal bands, Unleash The Archers, Isis Unveiled, The Order of Chaos and Anthrosoire. The day before they'll also be at the Kelowna School of Rock speaking with students on what it means to be a band on tour. firstname.lastname@example.org

Final Harry Potter film in theatres
his weekend, we see two of the most successful franchises hit the big screen—one that is less than 15 years old back for the last time and one that has been around for almost a century.

LEAD CHARACTERS reprise their roles in what’s said to be the final Harry Potter. fice of the first seven have out-grossed the 22 James Bond films (not adjusted for inflation). True to form, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II is

BEHIND THE SCREEN
Susan Steen it, so were many in the theatre. This is not going to be for everyone, but if you’re a bit quirky, don’t mind some WAY off-color humour, like to LOL, and have had a least one (if fleeting) thought about wishing your boss would just disappear, this one’s for you. The cast list reads like a who’s who (although maybe not the A list): Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrel, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx, Seth Gordon and Michael Markowitz. And they all work so well together. Can’t help but wonder just how long the filming took, because I can’t see any of these folks not laughing all the way through this. Look for at least one interesting cameo as well, and stay for the outtakes as the
credits roll. The three inept, but loveable characters, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) try hard to eliminate their horrible bosses, until the absurd hilarity reaches it’s peak. Colin Farrel is brilliant as the coke head Bobby Pellitt and Spacey is perfect as Dave Harlen—probably the worst boss ever. Jennifer Aniston, as the sex-crazed, cougar dentist with a potty mouth, is a hoot in a big departure from her usual bland roles. Jamie Foxx, whose character name cannot even be printed here, is
particularly good, and the list goes on. Everyone in the movie is crazy and we know it from the opening scene and that’s what makes it fun to watch. There are too many laugh out loud scenes to mention, but the Hitman scene is one of the best. One of the best movie quotes (and there were many): “You know, yours doesn’t sound that bad.” So if you’re open to raunchy but not uncomfortably offensive humour, this is the one to see this week. Go with a few comedy loving friends and if you or they are working for less than stellar bosses, so much the
better. I’m giving this movie 4 reels. Bring Kleenex, it’s that funny. Coming up and looking interesting: Crazy Stupid Love, Another Earth (July 29) and for those of us who like our comic book characters on the big screen, Captain America July 22. Please let me know if you have any preferences in what you would like me to see—and say hi if you see me at the movies. Susan Steen is a movie buff in Kelowna. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Habitat birthday party No.6
ix years have now gone by since Habitat first opened its doors on July 16, 2005. Four hundred plus shows and events later and Habitat is gearing up to celebrate its sixth year anniversary. In six years, the little venue that could has been through many ups and downs but 2011 has been Habitat’s best year for growth yet. With its relicensing phase nearing an end, owner Quinn Best being awarded a City of Kelowna Civic Award for Honor in the Arts, as well as the venue’s nomination for Best Live Music Venue at the Western Canadian Music Awards, Habitat is going strong. The building and the room have seen many changes since it first opened as basically a blank canvas—a big empty room with four white walls and a small Red Bull booth as the bar. The venue has now developed into a unique downtown space with a personality that is all its own. On its sixth year anniversary, Habitat would like to extend a sincere “thank you” to anyone who has played a show, organized an event, showed support through all the changes, or attended one of Habitat’s

many past events. Over the years, Habitat has proved to be a community effort and without the support from the City of Kelowna and the community, the venue might not have seen as many successes. To mark this momentous occasion, Habitat will be hosting its 6 Year Anniversary Party on Saturday, July 16. The evening will feature a look back at where Habitat has been as well as a look into what is to come. DJ Toddy Rockwell, a mainstay at Habitat since the beginning, and Grizz Lee will be spinning all night so don’t forget to bring those dancing shoes. Food and drink specials will be featured
and there will be a special surprise for those in attendance at the end of the night. If you have a favourite Habitat story or funny memory that you would like to share, Habitat wants to hear from you. Email your stand-out moments to email@example.com. Doors for Habitat’s 6 Year Anniversary open at 9 p.m. and admission is by donation. Habitat is located at 248 Leon Ave. For more information visit www. thehabitat.ca.

Bruce Mitchell Pitbull has also released product on a few different labels and, not to forget, Pitbull is a stage name that has been used by more than just a few artists over the years. So good luck hunting down all the back catalogue if you are a serious fan. Pitbull also releases some albums strictly in Spanish like last years Armando that sold at the No. 2 spot on the Latin charts yet only hit Billboard sales at No. 65 overall. Anyway, this new album is Pitbull’s most successful pop, mainstream crossover album and Planet Pit has made its mark debuting at four in Canada and seven in the

DAVID COOK: THIS LOUD MORNING (RCA)
When David Cook beat out David Archuleta back in 2008 on American Idol it was a minor shock as the latter was considered a shoe-in with what was called the ‘battle of the Davids.’ It is too bad that Cook didn’t release this new album back then when post grunge and emo rock had a little life left in its cycle.

And Pitbull could have a sizeable party if he only invited the nearly 20 guests he employs on this new album along with the people he name drops such as Lindsay Lohan— which is bound to reap tons of street cred from this party master rapper. Planet Pit may be lightweight thematically but it makes for a solid party record where my fave track is the heavy

Cookâ€™s post-grunge â€˜plodding and drearyâ€™ Mitchell from A12 Songs that get loud/quiet and soft/hard are now so passĂŠ and old hat that This Loud Morning sounds like a throwback, retro album, but what is even worse is that these are almost all uniformly bad post grunge, semi high compression (meaning too loud at any volume) songs. Nothing here requires or even hints at a repeated listen which is somewhat surprising as Cook had help from past successful musicians like Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and Johnny Rzeznik of Goo Goo Dolls (although it should be noted that The Goo Goo Dollsâ€™ last album, Something For The Rest Of Us, went hitless as ears for post grunge, complaint rock
are just plain played out). This album also comes as a deluxe twodisc set with a couple of additional songsâ€”the post-grunge, paint-bynumbers This Is Not The Last Time (say it isnâ€™t so) plus Let Me Fall For You and a DVD on the making of the album. Plodding and dreary. D
CHRIS YOUNG: NEON (RCA)
Like David Cook, Chris Young came by his fame through reality TV with a winning spot on 2006 Nashville Star. Neon is his third major label release and finds the country singer in solid, if not overly innovative, form. You get the sense Young just wants to be
liked and so Neon plays it very safe for a country audience that really doesnâ€™t want to be challenged all that much in the first place. There are likeable ballads such as the honeyed twang of the title song and the handsome strings that accentuate the romantic Sheâ€™s Got This Thing About Her. Young proves he can also swing a novelty honky tonk rocker Save Water, Drink Beer (which maybe has a bit of topicality given the severe droughts in Texas) while Young is smart enough to reference the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and â€˜radioâ€™ (where most of the sales of C&W disc sales are generated) within the same song with the future hit titled Lost.
A solid if unspectacular release. C+
HARRY POTTER & THE DEATHLY HOLLOWS PT.2: (SONY CLASSICAL)
Harry Potter mania abounds with this last film in the series that has recently hit the box offices and promises to be one of if not the number one grossing movies of this summer. I know that hard core fans collect everything Potter which brings us to this Original Motion Picture Soundtrack with music composed and conducted by Alexandre Desplat, who is also renowned for his music for other blockbuster films such as The Kingâ€™s Speech, Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Hostage,
The Golden Compass, Syriana, Firewall and several more. Desplat sets the score appropriately for scenes that are dark, less dark, sinister, frolicking, less frolicking, apocalyptic, triumphant, sweeping etc., over a lengthy 25-track CD. As a non Potterite I donâ€™t quite get what fans would want from this cinematic instrumental, orchestral album released on Sonyâ€™s â€˜classicalâ€™ label. But Harry Potter completists may also want this soundtrack as the disc is an enhanced CD where you can download the music in 5.1 surround sound PLUS â€œbehind the scenes footage from the scoring sessions.â€?

Combine your holiday with volunteering Dawn Wilkinson CONTRIBUTOR
Voluntourism was first coined in the Nevada tourism industry in 1998. People like the idea of combining their holiday time with getting involved through volunteering. It appeals to us at all ages and stages of our lives. David Clemmons, founder of VolunTourism. org, offers 10 tips to think about before planning your trip. 1) Be specific about your purpose. Is it a lifelong dream or based on a personal value? 2) Set reasonable goals rather than expectations. What can you achieveâ€”ie.: meet someone new or understand poverty better? 3) Choose a destination carefully. You are more likely to enjoy your experience if it links to something you are already familiar with such as the culture, language, an issue, or organization. 4) Do you want to accomplish something or engage with others? Physical labour to build a house is very different from teaching women to run a local small business. 5) Think about the drain on you physically and emotionally. Building that house can stress your muscles but seeing hungry children can affect your world view. 6) Plan a mix of experiences. How will this trip combine volunteer activities, local interactions, recreation and personal downtime? 7) Plan according to
your comfort level. What is your tolerance in accommodations, types of transportation and timelines, environment and climate, interaction with people and type of tasks? 8) Remain open. The unexpected will happen, so be prepared. 9) Ask about local guides. Who will you turn to for support when the unexpected occurs?
10) What is the voluntourism footprint? Are you clear about the give and take between your service and your take aways from the experience?

Go to www.landmarkcinemas.ca to choose the time that suits you best. The first collection of A. A. Milneâ€™s Winniethe-Pooh stories was published in 1926 and even before Disney licensed the rights in 1961, it was a multi-million dollar franchise. Since 1966, Disney has released numerous animated productions for theatres and television. The latest is simply titled Winnie the Pooh and is inspired by five of Milneâ€™s original stories, reuniting Pooh with Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo and Eeyore on an adventure that begins with the philosophical bear looking for some â€œhunnyâ€? and ends with Owl sending the whole gang on a wild
quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. The movie not only returns to the original stories, but marks a now rare return to traditional animation that is not in 3D. The Canadian premiere of the locally filmed Pressed at the Paramount Theatre is quickly approaching. The red carpet event starts at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 21, with the film starting at 8 p.m. In attendance will be cast members Michael Eklund, Tyler Johnson and Jeffrey Ballard and director Justin Donnelly.

Turner wins national gold, qualifies for Pan Ams Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
James Turner's first trip to the Canadian junior track and field championships was paved with gold. The 17-year-old from Kelowna established a personal best of 6,597 points last weekend in Winnipeg to win the Canadian junior decathlon title on his first try. The victory also earned Turner a berth in the Pan Am Junior Championships later this month in Miramar, Fla. Turner, the Canadian Legion octathlon champion in 2010, won five of the 10 events in the decathlon—100 metres, long jump, shot put, 400 metres and javelin—to edge out Ontario's Matheson West by 60 points for the gold medal. Still, Turner's win didn't come without considerable drama and some nervous moments. In the eighth of 10 events, the Okanagan Athletics Club failed on his first two attempts in the pole vault at 2.60 metres. One more miss and Turner could forget about the podium entirely, let alone a trip to the Pan

Ams. "I've never felt that much pressure in my life," said Turner, who only began training for the pole vault this year. "If I miss a third time, I'm pretty much done. When I made it on my third, it was huge relief. Only making one jump was a disappointment, but in the big picture, it was just what I needed." Turner trailed West by 20 points after the pole vault, but then surged ahead by 80 points with a convincing win in the ninth event, the javelin. In the last of 10 events, Turner held his own in the 1,500 metres to clinch the gold medal. "I knew I couldn't let him finish more than 12 seconds ahead of me, and I knew I could stay close," added Turner, turn 18 on Aug. 4. "I held my ground
WARREN HENDERSON/CAPITAL NEWS
KELOWNA’S James Turner is the top junior decathlete in Canada. and only finished about five seconds back, so that was good enough." While the decathlon is about as individual as a sporting discipline can get, Turner credits a number of people with helping him reach the status of national champion. Coaches Pam SimaLedding from the OAC, Paul Selzer (pole vault) from Abbotsford, and former Scottish national coach Laurier Primeau each played a key role
leading up to nationals— not to mention his physical therapist. "My physio, Roy Gillespie, helped me out a lot, too," said Turner, who also won a bronze at nationals with Team B.C. in the 4 by 400 relay. "I've had some injury troubles this year and he did a great job in helping me get ready." And Turner's work is far from over. Next up is the Pan Ams July 22 and 23 in Florida.
"Winning nationals is great, but it's not over yet. I have Pan Ams now and I really want to do well there. I'm not just happy going, I'm going with the goal of winning a medal." Next month, Turner will head south where he'll attend the University of Texas Arlington, an NCAA Div. 1 school, on a partial-ride scholarship.
JOYCE RUNS PBS
Kelowna's Keefer Joyce ran to a pair of per-
sonal bests at the Canadian junior track and field championships in Winnipeg. In the preliminary round of the 100 metres, the 17-year-old KSS student posted a new best time of 10.93 seconds. Competing against athletes as much as two years his senior, Joyce was then clocked at 11.12 in the semifinals, placing him 11th overall out of 16 competitors. In the 200 metres,
Joyce registered a PB of 22.33 in the 200 metres. In the semifinals, he ran a 22.70 to finish in 12th overall. Only the top eight in each event qualified for finals. Joyce will compete this weekend at the B.C. youth championships in Coquitlam. He was also named recently to the Canadian team which will compete at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Isle of Man, GBR in September.
Pacific Coast League berth in Challenge’s hands Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
Win and they're in. Lose and they'll need some help. Those are the scenarios facing the Okanagan Challenge heading into their final game of the 2011 Pacifc Coast Soccer League regular season. With a victory over the Kamloops Excel this Saturday night at the Apple Bowl the Challenge would secure the fourth and final post-season berth. The Challenge (5-5-1) currently
leads Victoria United (5-6-0) by one point for fourth spot. Victoria closes out its regular campaign Saturday afternoon at home to Mid Isle and must win to stay in the hunt. A United loss would automatically send the Challenge to the playoffs. With United losing twice last weekend, Okanagan leapt over Victoria in the standings, thanks to a 3-1 win last Saturday at home against the Mid Isle Highlanders. Dylan Abbott opened the scoring in the 14th minute on a header off a cross from Nick
Aguilar. Mid Isle drew even in the 24th minute with a goal after some miscommunication in the Challenge box. Still, head coach Kelly Wolverton said his team didn't lose focus. "To me it seemed that our guys never had a doubt we would win," Wolverton said. "Even with Mid Isle tying it, I still felt that our team was in control and also felt that our guys knew they were in control." The Challenge went ahead to stay in the 43rd minute when Abbott struck
again, this time scoring off the rebound of Johnny Hodnett's shot which hit the post. In the 72nd minute insurance came from Justin Wallace who slotted a penalty kick for his team-leading sixth goal of the season. "Joel Malouf played centerback and was strong in the air and individual defending," said Wolverton. "Our entire back line was good for that matter—Christian McKellar, Dustin Luck, Carson Gill, Tyler Murphy (defensive midfielder) and Joel. Overall,
it was a good product." The top four teams will qualify for the PCSL championship tournament, known as the Challenge Cup, July 23 and 24 in Penticton. As it stands now, the Vancouver Thunderbirds, Surrey United and Khalsa Sporting Club have clinched the first three playoff spots. The Challenge won the 2009 PCSL, then lost in the league final in 2010. firstname.lastname@example.org

Rhodes covers 8k in 31:51 The unbeatable Cindy Rhodes set the pace among all women at the Kelowna Running Club's Midsummer 8 K Race. The Kelowna runner was the first female to finish the local event on Sunday morning in a time of 31 minutes 51 seconds, good for 14th overall and first among women in the 50 to 54 age bracket. It was Rhodes' sixth win of the season in six
tries on the Interior Running Association series. Vancouver's Jeremiah Ziak was the overall winner in a time of 24:50, while Kelowna's Tom Michie was well back in second at 27:01. Kelowna's Trevor Haaheim was third in 27:14. Rory Switzer won the men's 50 to 54 age group and was fifth overall in 27:57. Other age group win-
ners from Kelowna were: John Machuga (men's 30 to 34), sixth overall in 29:07; Matthew Banfield (men's 16 to 19), 13th overall in 31:47; Tiffany Fowler (women's 40 to 44) in 37:00; Janice McQuilkin (45 to 49) in 38:48; Bill Stephens (men's 70 to 74) in 40:29; Ian Johnston (0 to 15) in 40:30; Diane Leonard (women's 65 to 69) in 40:40; Astrid Varga (women's 60 to

Alexander leads Pink Panthers in shutout
U18s finish out of medals at B.C. regional
Peacock Sheridan Group Pink Panthers rode the hot foot of midfielder-turned-forward Mandy Alexander en route to a shutout of the Blue Gator Stiyotes Sunday night in Kelowna Women's Soccer League Premier Divison action. Alexander slotted the hat-trick in a 5-0 win as the Stiyotes fielded just 10 players. Pink had single goals from Alessia Muresu— her 10th of the season— and Becca Dyer with her first. Kim Steeper recorded her third clean sheet for the season. In other action, Lauren
Harris notched four goals to lead Mark V Autobody to a 5-3 win over Royal Star. Hayler Hueser scored the other goal and added two assists. Julie Mackenzie scored twice for Star, with Drew Hamilton adding the other goal. Chelsey Forsberg had two goals and two assists to lead RPM Automotive Extreme to a 7-2 win over Boston Pizza Daiblos. Vanessa Zilkie tallied the hat-trick in the win, while Monica Cella and Cammi Taron added singles. Delinah Erbenich and Kim McNally replied for Diablos.

The United U18 girls took fifth place overall at the Provincial B Cup in Penticton. With eight teammates away or injured, the remaining 12 battled courageously alongside three pickups from the Westside. The first match against Dunbar ended in a 2-2 tie with Hailey Myers scoring on a penalty kick and Jessa Gabriel making no
mistake with a hard shot top corner. Game 2 against Cowichan Valley was a 3-1 loss but the girls fought valiantly. Defenseman Kelsey Reid was the lone scorer with a huge shot outside the 18-yard box after being set up by feisty midfielder Dylan Erhardt. The final match pitted Kelowna against their rivals during regular league play—Shuswap—with United recording a 5-1 win. Nikayla Gabriel, Karly Stromquist, Riley Sharko, Sara Carter and Hailey Myers scored for United. Kelowna keeper Mackailyn Arnason played spectacular and made some amazing diving catches.

In the second half, United relied on its strong defence, including an outstanding effort by Katie Grundel and hard work in the middle, anchored by Kandace Robinson to keep Bulkley off the score sheet and finish off the match with a 2-0 win for Kelowna. Natasha Remesz earned the shut out in goal. United earned a berth in the bronze medal game thanks to a 2-2 with Kamloops in their final round robin game.

The Okanagan U18 Selects placed fourth in a field of six teams at the Provincial Regional Championships (PRCs) held at UBC Vancouver last weekend. After losing 31-5 to Vancouver Island South in the opener on Friday, the locals lost a close one to Vancouver 11-5 in the afternoon game. Saturday was much kinder to the Okanagan side, with a 0-0 draw against Kamloops, and a solid 31-5 victory over Vancouver Island North. In the Bronze Medal final on Sunday, the Okanagan U18 side lost an exciting match to Vancouver 24-12. The Okanagan U16 tournament was much bigger, with nine teams competing. After losing four games on Friday and Saturday to Vancouver West, the Vancouver Island Junior Tide, Fraser Valley West, and Vancouver Island North, the Okanagan U16 reps played much better on Sunday, losing 13-5 to Fraser Valley Central and defeating Vancouver East 20-5. The local side placed 8th in the tournament. “Despite our results, this was a very positive event for our players,” said Dave Kemp, U16 manager. “For most of them, this was their first high level competition. They started the tournament as kids playing rugby, and finished as committed rugby players. The level of their games elevated throughout the tournament. This will be very good for league play in our region.” Two U16 players from the Okanagan have been selected to try out for the U16 provincial team. Hooker Nico Carboni from Penticton and outside centre Ryan Messer from Vernon will compete for a spot on the B.C. side. U18 play continues next week, as a Central Okanagan U18 Selects side will play Canford School from England at City Park at 4 p.m. on July 18.

Raiders host Tigers in finale The Kelowna Raiders and Vernon Tigers are headed to a third and deciding game in their Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League semifinal series. Face off Thursday at Kelowna's Memorial Arena is 7:30 p.m. The Tigers stayed alive with a 7-6 overtime win on Monday night in Vernon. The teams fought to a 5-5 tie through regulation play, then traded goals in the first 10-minute overtime session. t Vernon then settled the issue with a goal early in the sudden death period. r "Vernon had their backs against the wall and they were hungry," said Raiders coach Travis Wray. "They beat us to most balls and we just didn't come out and play the way we needed to. The guys know exactly what they need to do in Game 3." Wray also expects playing the decisive game at Memorial Arena will weigh in his team's favour.
SHAWN HOCHHAUSEN (front) and the Kelowna
Raiders will battle Brett Hanna and the Vernon Tigers in TOJLL playoff action Thursday at Memorial Arena. "We haven't lost at home all year and the guys obviously like playing there," said Wray whose team won the series opener 11-4 on Saturday night. "We've been solid at home and I don't see that
changing on Thursday." The winner of Thursday's game will meet the winner of the Kamloops Venom-Armstrong Shamrocks semifinal series in the TOJLL championship.

NEWS ▼ MLA’S REPORT
The improvement ahead for Westside Road takes time O
ne of the questions I’m most often asked is, “What do you like most about being an MLA?” Well, how long do you have? It’s a great job. It’s an honour and a privilege to serve the people of Westside-Kelowna. Of course, people also ask the reverse opinion, “What’s the hardest part about the job?” The easy and first answer is being away from my family for long stretches; you never get used to that.
road later that year and came up with a plan, which was presented to local stakeholders. The plan, including a map of candidate sites for improvements, is available at the ministry of transportation’s web site. The process from public meeting to “boots on the ground” takes time—
including First Nations consultation, engineering design and, perhaps most interestingly, archaeological and geotechnical assessment and review; the land along the Okanagan’s west shore is quite unstable. Engineers use LiDAR, a side-scanning radar technology, to perform detailed assess-
ments. Work on Westside Road will begin two phases—the first from West Kelowna to La Casa; the second from La Casa to Highway 97 North. The first projects will be creating nine or 10 slow vehicle pullouts, chosen from 12 potential sites. Engineering work on the first projects of
phase one have begun. Why are two phases necessary? In a word— money. We simply don’t have the budget to do everything at once. It’s worth pointing out this project isn’t even the only major transportation project on Westside Road. The Westside Road Interchange Project started
construction last year. There have been other recent projects in the region, such as significant highway improvements between Peachland and Summerland. Also consider the effect eliminating the HST would have on the ability to afford more projects. Not only would there
be less revenue, but we’d have to return a significant amount of money to Ottawa, money that could be better spent on things like hospitals, community grants—and highway improvements. Ben Stewart is the Liberal MLA for Westside-Kelowna. www.benstewartmla.bc.ca

Ben Stewart But being in government also means having to make difficult choices within a limited budget. One example is road improvements and other transportation projects. In an ideal world, every major road would be four divided lanes, with underand overpasses instead of intersections. But that’s obviously not feasible; we have to make decisions about where to invest transportation dollars based on need, anticipated trends in volume and regional balance. That’s not to suggest legitimate concerns, like those of the Wilsons Landing Community Society and other groups, shouldn’t be addressed as quickly as possible. They have been very direct and clear: Safety improvements are necessary on Westside Road. There are segments that are simply too narrow, including tight turns with inadequate visibility and sightlines. These concerns only increased after a fatality on the road this May. They’re absolutely correct—improvements are necessary. And improvements are underway. Shortly after being elected MLA in 2009, I was invited to a public meeting near La Casa, where residents expressed their concerns. After meeting B.C. Ministry of Transportation officials, they conducted a survey of the

COs put down cougar near local park Alistair Waters STAFF REPORTER
Quick action by local conservation officers Tuesday afternoon resulted in the killing of a cougar that had been reported in a residential area near Kalamoir Regional Park in West Kelowna. According to Barbara Leslie, inspector for the Okanagan region of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, the cougar was shot after it appeared twice at a Lakeridge Road property in Lakeview Heights, the first time attacking a small dog and scratching the dog’s owner as he tried to get the cougar away from his pet. The dog sustained minor injuries. Leslie said there were seven different reports of sightings of the cougar in the neighbourhood over the previous few days. …IT WAS BETTER She said a cougar TO ERR ON THE houndsman was called SIDE OF PUBLIC in and the cougar re-apSAFETY. peared on a trail in the Barbara Leslie, B.C. park and was shot there. “We felt with all the Conservation Officer reports, the attack on the Service inspector dog and the condition of the cougar, it was better to err on the side of public safety,” said Leslie. Regional district spokesman Bruce Smith said minutes after he issued a warning about the cougar attack and a plan to close Kalamoir Park temporarily, he received word the cougar had been shot. “We were on our way to the park with signs and to close and lock the gate when we were told they had got the cougar,” said Smith. Leslie said her officers believe they got the right cougar because of its distinctive markings. She said it was a young cat but was very thin. Tests on the animal will be conducted at a laboratory in Alberta. Anyone who sees a cougar is asked to contact the conservation service at 1-800-663-9453. Leslie said cougars are not always killed but in this case it was felt that was the best course of action given the many sighting and attack in a residential neighbourhood. Kalamoir Regional Park is a 26-hectare park along Okanagan Lake in West Kelowna, bordered by the Casa Loma subdivision to the north and Lakeview Heights to the west and south.

Costs of incorporation continuing to mount Marshall Jones CONTRIBUTOR
Before West Kelowna voted to incorporate, residents knew there would be a price to running a City Hall, their own RCMP detachment and maintaining their own roads, among many other costs. But two reports that reached the council table in the past month make past estimates pale in comparison. A study of West Kelowna roads two weeks ago called for $192 million over the next 20 to 30 years. And while that report was harshly criticized by councillors for being overthe-top, those costs, while higher, were expected. On Tuesday, councillors faced down another $2.5 to $5 million required over 10 to 15 years to fix stormwater drainage
problems, another legacy of neglect from a time when the provincial ministry of transportation and highways managed the problem. And some of the hot spots are becoming immediate needs. Councillors had to wrestle with an ongoing problem with Green Bay on Tuesday. The man-made bay is slowing filling with sediment off the hillside including immediate neighbour Quails’ Gate Winery, but also from development above at Mission Hill. The bay is so shallow that the milfoil harvesting machines can’t work in there and it makes navigation difficult for residents. They have been petitioning council for help and a solution to the runoff. Proposed plans to deal with the issue range between $650,000 and
$840,000. Residents of Green Bay also expect the district to help pay for dredging the bay. But Mayor Doug Findlater says, according to their report, Green Bay isn’t the priority. “The other big ticket item is Smith Creek,” he said. “There are water quality issues in Smith Creek including everything from pesticide-related runoff and E. coli in the creek, to severe erosion at the end behind McDonald’s and running down by the doggy beach. That in my mind is emerging as higher priority because it dumps into an area adjacent to a public swimming area.” The cost of that project alone is $600,000 to $700,000. “We can’t do them all at once,” Findlater said. “This will have to be a staged program over five to 10 years.”
Dousing out forest fuels As it approaches the anniversary of two forest fires that consumed area homes, the District of West Kelowna is reminding the provincial government that a pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Mayor Doug Findlater got plenty of council support in asking Premier Christy Clark for help clearing forest fuels on Crown land but also private lands. He urged the premier to create enforceable provincial standards on both lands. “The only agency able to take this massive project on would be the provincial government of B.C.,” he said. “This is not a West Kelowna public health issue alone. It impacts a significant number of municipalities in the province, all undoubtedly facing the same pressure from their residents.” Councillors are hoping to raise the issue among their colleagues in the Oka-
nagan and the province for additional support.
LIQUOR LICENSE FOR WINERY
Volcanic Hills Estate Winery took another step toward becoming another Boucherie Road destination winery on Tuesday as councillors endorsed its bid for a liquor licence. Proprietor Bobby Gidda is looking for a winery lounge and special event area to potentially serve 60 people inside and up to 100 more on the patio.
TRANSIT FEE HIKES
Bus riders can expect to pay a little more beginning in January. The roughly 11 per cent increase is the first since 2007. It means most riders will pay 25 cents more for each ride, from $2 for an adult to $2.25. A monthly adult pass will rise to $60 from $53. Student monthly fees will rise to $60 from $53.

standing as to the purpose of my weekly MP Report. The intent behind it is to report to the constituents I represent in this riding as your MP. I believe it is important to report on my activities, to ask for your input and share what I have been hearing both locally and in Ottawa. The actual distance from points within Okanagan-Coquihalla to Ottawa may be roughly 3,000 kilometres, but to many people here, that distance seems more like 30,000 kilometres. By submitting these reports, reading your emails and letters, and also attending community events that allow me to meet with many citizens in person, my goal is to ensure that I am on the right track. Government must listen to taxpayers. As Prime Minister Stephen Harper has observed, Canadians do not like surprises. As a
Dan Albas government, we must recognize the wide diversity of Canada. We must not lose sight of the challenges that many citizens face and at the same time we must have a vision for the opportunities that we need as a nation to prosper with secure jobs and a strong economy. While we have witnessed the creation of close to 600,000 net new jobs since July 2009, we must not forget those Canadians still looking for work. This fall, the standing
committee on finance will be asking taxpayers to share your ideas at the annual pre-budget consultation hearings. Submissions can be made in person or in writing. July 29 is the deadline to apply to appear inperson. The committee is scheduled to visit numerous cities across Canada. If you wish to appear before the committee, please contact the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Finance and indicate three locations where you are willing to appear. The deadline for written submissions is Aug. 12. Submissions should be no longer than five pages in length, with up to three recommendations that reflect your ideas on taxes, potential new investments, or cost savings related to the federal government. Your submission, along with your contact
information, can be sent to the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Finance at the following address: The Clerk of the Standing Committee on Finance Sixth Floor, 131 Queen Street House of Commons Ottawa ON K1A 0A6 Canada The contact phone number is 613-992-9753, fax number is 613-9961626 and email address is FINA@park.gc.ca. What is truly unique about our country is that we always develop ways and means for everyone to have their say and to test and challenge those ideas. We can all feel proud that when the last spike is hammered, the last soldier returns home or the last vote is counted, that it’s our country and we can play a part in it. Dan Albas is the Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla.

How does one become an environmentalist? Y oung people often ask me what they have to do to be environmentalists. They want to make a difference. My answer is: “Follow your heart. Do what you love most and pursue it with passion.” You see, environmentalism isn’t a profession or discipline; it’s a way of seeing our place in the world. It’s recognizing that we live on a planet where everything, including us, is exquisitely interconnected with and interdependent on everything else. Life-giving water moves from ocean to air to land, across the globe, linking all life through the hydrologic cycle. Every breath we take contains oxygen from every plant on land and in the sea, as well as whatever issues from every factory chimney and vehicle on Earth. The web of all living things constantly partakes of and cleanses, replenishes and restores air, water, soil and energy. In this way of seeing the world, we are not only recipients of nature’s most vital gifts—we are participants in her cycles. Whatever we toss without a thought or deliberately dump into our surroundings doesn’t simply vanish or dilute away. Our use of air, water and soil as garbage dumps means that those emissions and pollutants move through the biosphere, ecosystems, habitats and eventually our own bodies and cells. Environmentalism is recognition of this. We need all people—plumbers, teachers, doctors, carpenters, garage mechanics, businesspeople, artists, scientists—to see and understand the world that way because once we “get it,” we treat our surroundings in a radically different way, with the respect that we should have toward our own bodies and loved ones. For most of human existence, we were hunter-gatherers who understood how deeply embedded in and utterly dependent on nature we were. Until we underwent the massive transformation from agrarian life to bigcity dwelling, people knew that we were part of nature and needed nature for survival. We watched the skies for hints of a change in weather or for the first sighting of migrating birds. We welcomed the
appearance of buds on the bushes, the first signs of spring thaw, or the indicators that winter was on its way. Today, we spend less and less of our time outDavid side. I have a friend who Suzuki lives in the north end of Toronto in an air-conditioned high rise building. On weekdays, he goes down the elevator into the basement where he climbs into his air-conditioned car to drive the Don Valley freeway to the air-conditioned commercial building where he works. That building is connected through a series of tunnels to vast shopping malls and food marts. “I really don’t have to go outside for days,” he once told me. Ours is a shattered world, with torrents of information assaulting us from every angle. Headlines may scream of the aftermath of a hockey playoff or a devastating tornado in the southern U.S. and then trumpet Oprah’s last TV program and another sex scandal. And then we hear of floods in Pakistan or Manitoba, forest fires raging in northern Alberta and thinning sea ice in the Arctic, retreating glaciers and drought in rainforests. Reports about floods and droughts and sea ice and climate change get sandwiched between clips about scandals and celebrities and so we view them as isolated events. An environmental perspective would consider the possibility that many of the events are connected to an underlying cause. Such a perspective would help us get to the root of problems rather than trying to stamp out brushfires without identifying the source of the conflagration. Environmentalists are accused of caring more for spotted owls or trees than people and jobs. That’s absurd. In seeing a world of interconnections, we understand that people are at the heart of a global eco-crisis and that genuine sustainability means also dealing with issues of hunger and poverty, of inequity and lack of justice, of terrorism, genocide and war, because so long as these issues confront humanity, sustainability will be a low priority. If we want to find solutions, we have to look at the big picture.

▼ MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE LAWSUITS
Different rules for girls and boys
f medical negligence at birth destroys a baby’s ability to ever enter the work force, should a baby girl be compensated less than a baby boy? I told the sad story of a brain injury case in my column last week and won’t repeat the details here. You can find that column on the kelownacapnews.com web site. The difficult legal question about whether boys and girls should receive different compensation came up in a June 29, 2011, decision of the top court of British Columbia, our Court of Appeal. The medical insurer had appealed the trial decision on several grounds, all of which failed with the exception of partial success on this point. Based on census data in 2005, lifetime earnings for women were approximately 40 per cent lower than for men. Part of that spread is the discrimination in the work place that our society is slowly working to eliminate. The law is clear that there should not be any deduction in compensation to account for historical gender discrimination. The medical insurer did not argue against that. Another part of the spread of lifetime earnings between men and women has been, in the language of the medical insurer, the choices women make in the labour market, including the potential for having and raising children. The medical insurer’s argument was that the trial judge had failed to reduce compensation to account for that factor. The Court of Appeal agreed. I cannot fault the reasoning of the three-judge panel of the British Columbia Court of Appeal. They applied a very thoughtful legal analysis. I really, really dislike the result, though. I see the result as a form of discrimination similar to workplace discrimination. The “choices” women have historically made with regard to giving up careers and raising children have been made in the context of historical workplace discrimination. It has historically made sense for mothers to be the ones, instead of fathers, to sacrifice their careers to raise children because the cost to the fam-
Paul Hergott ily to pull mothers out of the work force has been lower. It has historically made more sense for mothers to take more extended time away from the work force instead of hiring child care because of the comparison between the earning potential of women and the cost of child care. The gradual elimination of workplace discrimination has been resulting in a gradual change in family choices. The gender disparity in how choices are made is changing.
If workplace discrimination ought not to be taken into account to devalue a woman’s earning capacity, should the “choices” women make as a result of workplace discrimination be used for that purpose? Any poor soul who had read my column since its inception in the Westside section 4 1/2 years ago knows that I am a fierce defender of our judiciary. Several times, I have come to the defence of unpopular judgments, noting that judges apply the law and if we don’t like the law we should go to our political leaders to change it. Our political leaders could decide that racial, sexual and other discrimination should have no place in the assessment of compensation in our courts. How do political
decisions get made? Public opinion. I encourage you to express your opinion to your local political representative. 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. firstname.lastname@example.org

WESTSIDE â–ź PROVINCE
Charities hope review reforms gambling grants Jeff Nagel CONTRIBUTOR
A review of how the province shares its gambling profits with community groups must, say charity advocates, restore slashed grants to former levels and curtail Victoriaâ€™s ability to interfere in the future. The Community Gaming Grant Review, announced this week by Premier Christy Clark, is to deliver a top-to-bottom assessment of the system and determine options to â€œcreate certainty and sustainabilityâ€? for affected non-profit groups and charities. It will be headed by former Kwantlen University president Skip Triplett. Many groups were outraged in 2009 when the province cut grants to community groups from $156 million to $120 million a year. That was raised
to $135 million this spring after Clark took office. Susan Marsden, president of the B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming, characterized the raid two years ago as an attack on non-profits, particularly those in arts and culture. â€œThey decided they were going to cut out arts and culture entirely, cut environmental groups entirely, cut other groups by 50 per cent and give 100 per cent to their favourite charities,â€? she said. Rich Coleman, the former minister in charge of gaming, had defended the cuts as necessary to shore up B.C.â€™s budget amid a deepening global recession and said the reallocations were geared to protect youth groups at the expense of organizations serving adults. Marsden accused Coleman of putting his personal anti-arts stamp on the decision and said
she hopes the review ensures nothing similar can happen again. â€œWe need to get government at armâ€™s length from this,â€? she said. â€œIn the short term, we need to get all of the charities funded again to the levels they were in 2008. In the long term, we need to look at stability, at legislation that enshrines the funding formula.â€? Marsden praised Clark for delivering on her pledge of a review and said the terms of reference are acceptableâ€”except that Triplett wonâ€™t report until the end of October. â€œI donâ€™t know if there will be any charities left to fund once they get around to putting anything into legislation, not to mention there may be an election in between.â€? Many non-profit groups are â€œon life supportâ€? after cutting staff and switching to cheaper accommodation, she said.
PREMIER CHRISTY CLARK has set up a community gaming grant review process to provide an assessment of how gambling profits are used to benefit non profit groups and what changes in that system are necessary. More than two thirds of the $1-billion a year in revenue that comes to the province from gambling goes into general revenue, with another $147 million dedicated to health funding, $82 million shared with cities that host casinos or commun-
ity gaming centres and the rest is shared with community groups. Charities have often been enlisted to voice their support for gaming when new casinos or slot machine venues have been proposed. The review is to collect input from charities,
community members, industry reps and local government. â€œThis review is not just about how much money we can share,â€? said Ida Chong, minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. â€œItâ€™s about the process
we use to decide together who should have access to this funding, what we can do with it and how we are accountable for it.â€? For more information, including upcoming community forums, see www.communitygaminggrantreview.gov.bc.ca.

James Kaufman worry from time to time about finances, family, health and future, but it becomes a problem for us when we are thinking and worrying constantly or when it prevents us from relaxing or unwinding from our daily stresses. Western medical treatment for anxiety usually is with medications and/ or counseling or therapy. Lifestyle changes, coping skills and relaxation techniques can also help. Acupuncture fortunately has a great deal to offer anxiety sufferers. Stress responds very
positively to acupuncture and so do the many stressrelated health problems we experience, including chronic anxiety. Acupuncture is regulating—it works by normalizing the body’s internal systems and processes and one of those systems is our autonomic nervous system, which manages our body’s states of arousal (“fight-or-flight”) and relaxation (“rest-and-digest”). Normally our body fluctuates somewhere between states of arousal/ stress and states of calm/ relaxation, however ongoing stressors can leave our body in a state of chronic stress or anxiety, leading to health problems. Acupuncture helps to bring our body back to its calm, relaxed state of healthy functioning. This is a western perspective of how acupunc-
ture can help with anxiety. However, Chinese medicine has its own language for talking about patterns of disease and offers a different perspective. A big difference between Chinese medicine and Western medicine is the way in which disease is viewed—Chinese medicine sees health and disease as a continuum. Anxiety is seen as an imbalance or excess of the emotion “worry.” Worry is a normal emotional state which enables concentration, memorization and focus, however when worry gets out of balance it leads to constant thinking, brooding, worrying and anxiety. Anxiety can be caused by our lifestyle, if we have too many stressors or too often, or we can be prone to it due to a constitutional imbalance or weakness
in the spleen, heart, lungs, or a combination of these organs. Excessive worry causes our qi-energy to get stuck and not flow properly. This, in turn, can injure the organs, causing additional symptoms, depending on the organ(s) affected. By redirecting the body’s energy flow with acupuncture, we can help the body to correct internal imbalances and treat the cause of anxiety symptoms. Acupuncture also works towards emotional balance, so that we are better able to deal with daily stresses without falling into excessive worry. Acupuncture is also an excellent complement to therapy or counseling, helping to relieve the physical symptoms of anxiety and calm
the emotions while a person works through the behavioural aspects of their anxiety. Making lifestyle changes to reduce stress and to better deal with it can also contribute posi-

VARZARI, DOREEN CECILIA (LARKO) Beloved wife of the late William “Beaver” Varzari, passed away with her family by her side in Kelowna on Friday, July 8, 2011 at the age of 80 years. Doreen was born in Lethbridge, Alberta on October 19, 1930, where she lived most of her early life. She attended St. Basil’s School. As a young girl, she loved to dance and took ballet and tap lessons and excelled in both. She was a very skilled baton twirler and was proud of her participation in the Lethbridge Parade. She was also a cracker-jack roller skater. In 1949 she met and married the love of her life, William (Beaver) Varzari. Together in the ﬁfties, they started Varzari Iron, where she worked for a few years. In 1975 she and Beaver moved to Kelowna, BC where her love for jewellery led her to start her own jewellery business. She owned and operated “Classic Gems”, located in downtown Kelowna. She and Beaver lived a full and busy life, spending many wonderful years with their family at their home on Abbot Street on Lake Okanagan. After the passing of her husband in 1982, she chose to spend the next twenty nine years living a quiet and serene life in Kelowna. She loved the sound of birds chirping and had numerous bird feeders outside her window. She loved hydrangeas, which were plentiful in her yard, and she loved the smell of plumeria trees, a reminder of her wonderful Hawaiian vacations from long ago. She was tender and wise and always gracious…and she had a very generous heart. She was a wonderful mother and fun-loving grandmother affectionately known as “BaBa”. She will be sadly missed! Left to cherish her memory are her beloved children; Rosanne, Gerald (Rita), Gayle, Terry-Jean (Brent), her grandchildren; Jason (Amber), Andrea, Eli, Hilary, and Christopher, and her great grandchildren Chrystine and Jamie. Doreen is also survived by two sisters, Betty Ann and Mary Lou andone brother, Ralph. She was predeceased by her parents John and Ann Larko. A Celebration of Doreen’s Life will be held at 2:00 pm on Thursday, July 14, 2011 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 4th Street South, Lethbridge. Interment at Mountain View Cemetery.
