emembrance Day services around the Okanagan were some of the most well attended in recent history. That’s in spite of the fact only 140,000 of the 1.1 million Canadians who served during the Second World War remain. The surge of support is in large part due to the fact that Royal Canadian Legion branches across the region are reaching out to school age children, to share their experiences and keep their sacrifices top of mind.

No bail for alleged cocaine smuggler

A West Kelowna man allegedly involved in an attempt to import cocaine into Canada in a fruit grinding machine has been ordered to stay in jail as he awaits trial.

MOTORING Fridays in the Capital News

Clifford Roger Montgomery, 33, was denied bail by Judge Robin Smith this week, more than a month after his arrest on drug charges. Reasons for denying bail and the submissions Smith heard prior to coming to his decision are sub-

ject to a publication ban. Police announced last month that border officials found 97.5 kilograms of cocaine inside a fruit grinding machine on Sept. 22, and called in RCMP. Mounties made a controlled delivery of the machine, originally sent from

Argentina, to its destination in Kelowna. After the machine was delivered, police arrested Montgomery at his home and fellow West Kelowna resident Barry Michael Ready, 50, at a ranch outside Merritt. Two other men, Mo-

M

ov ing only to raise his hand to his brow, in a long salute, Brian Murphy, 96, sat a distance away from Remembrance Day ceremonies held at UBC Okanagan this week and took in the crowd gathered below. “I was proud to see young people bear the cross and remember,” he said, following the speeches, prayers and poems that, over the years, have come to define Nov. 11. The gathering of several hundred also offered him a chance to reflect on the war that offered him “an adventure to remember.” In 1942, Murphy enlisted in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps. In the years that followed, that decision took him to Italy, North Africa and North-

west Europe, to assist soldiers in battles that helped shape the outcome of the war that are lauded for giving freedom to the generations that followed. Back then, however, Murphy was only doing what he “figured was (his) duty.” “We were only a country of 11.5 million, and we sent one million men into arms,” he said. Leaving the safety of Canada aboard the Queen Elizabeth alongside thousands of other soldiers, Murphy travelled to Europe, stopping first in Scotland and eventually landing in London. “And then when we got to London, we turned west to a place called Aldershot, a huge military base…oh, just immense,” he recalled in an interview transcribed in the Memory Project, an endeavour from the department of Canadian Heritage to record and catalogue veterans’ stories.

Later shipped to North Africa, where he worked in a Prisoner of War camp, it’s battles in Italy,

Murphy recalls in vivid detail. “We got outside Rome, at Monte Ca-

sino…and there was this mount, with the monastery on the top and the Germans in the monastery watching us,” he said. “They brought out 5,000 guns and I never heard anything like it.” Allied soldiers pushed

through, and went on to Rome at the same time as the Invasion of Normandy was rolling out, creating a diversion that allowed passage through the city free of strife. But pushing further through the country

in what turned out to be some of the final months of the war, more battles played out and there were many more casualties. Among the dead was Murphy’s flatmate from his days in London. Serving his duty until the war ended, he returned to Canada with the remnants of those last battles in mind, and lived out a promise he’d made to his friend. “I drove to Medicine Hat, got his address. There was a little boy sitting on the steps and he jumped up yelling, ‘Mum, Mum, daddy’s home, daddy’s home.’ And he ran down the steps and on the walk and threw his arms around me…Oh, God,” he said. “And I said, ‘I’m not your dad but I want to tell you what a brave soldier he was.” For Rachel WebSee Never Forget A5

W FRIENDS OF MISSION CREEK

Invasive vegetation the focus of talk by respected nature writer Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Author and grassland ecologist Don Gayton will be the guest speaker at Thursday’s annual general meeting of the Friends of Mission Creek. Gayton says there is a pocket grassland along the Mission Creek Greenway, on a bench above the creek along Phase Two, where the original lower trail was washed out some years ago by the creek. Today, stairs have been built to take hikers up the hill and through that grassland instead of alongside the creek, and plans are for some interpretive signs there explaining the importance of grassland ecosystems.

N I W U W O W 1-877

Gayton notes there is some interesting vegetation there, where native bluebunch wheatgrass vies with patches of invasive non-native plants beside it. The existence of a ‘template’ adjacent would make it easier to do some restoration work on the patches where invasives have taken over, because it would be possible to examine the still-native portions to know what it used to be like. However, he noted that invasives in Okanagan grasslands are particularly persistent so such a restoration project should only be taken on with the realization that it is a longterm effort. Compounding the problem of invasive, non-native plants in local grasslands is the difficulty of in-

vasive seed mixtures used by many jurisdictions to stabilize areas, for instance following wildfire. Other grasslands in the Central Okanagan, such as in the Black Knight Mountain area and Bald Range on the Westside have been pretty heavily disturbed and invaded by noxious weeds, he commented. Gayton will be using slides to illustrate his talk. A well-respected nature writer, he has had two books published this year: Okanagan Odyssey and Man Facing West. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the EECO in Mission Creek Regional Park and everyone is welcome to attend. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Vernon’s fire chief recruited to head up Kelowna’s firefighters Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

A nationwide search for a new chief for the Kelowna Fire Department has resulted in the hiring of a man working practically in Kelowna’s back yard. The City of Kelowna announced Friday that Jeffrey Carlisle, Vernon’s current fire chief, has been tapped to take Kelowna’s top fire job, starting Jan. 4. For Carlisle, who has more than 36 years of fire service experience, the job opportunity was one that came out of the blue. “It was an unexpected opportunity that just surfaced,” said Carlisle. “I took a look at the Kelowna Fire Department. It has a great reputation in a great city, good leadership in the city and it’s aligned with my per-

Jeffrey Carlisle sonal and professional goals, so it’s just one those things that surfaced and aligned. (I) thought it was a great opportunity, took a run at it and I’m the successful candidate which I’m very happy about,” he said. The city says Carlisle was chosen for his leadership experience and progressive management positions in fire services. “Chief Carlisle’s experience speaks for itself,”

says Paul Macklem, general manager of corporate services for the City of Kelowna. “His demonstrated leadership and management skills will be a great asset in shaping the strategic direction for the Kelowna Fire Department.” For now, though, Carlisle plans to get his “boots on the ground” at Kelowna Fire Department and get to know the staff and city staff before working “with the folks to see where we can go with the fire department.” Carlisle has been the fire chief in Vernon since April, 2008. Before then, he was regional fire chief for the regional municipality of Wood Buffalo, Alta. and deputy chief for the Fort McMurray Fire Department. He also has 24 years of service with the Cana-

dian Forces. Carlisle holds the professional designation of Chief Fire Officer and has his Master of Arts, Leadership degree. He is also the recipient of a Premier’s Award of Excellence and Alberta Centennial Medal for his contribution to the Alberta Fire Service. Carlisle will oversee the strategic direction of the 117 full-time personnel and 59 paid-on-call volunteers in Kelowna, as well as the regional emergency response plan. Acting fire chief Steve Kinsey, a retired member of the department who was brought in after former chief Rene Blanleil left in May, will continue his duties until the New Year. —with files from Roger Knox, Vernon Morningstar

Neutral territory best place to deal with your bosses Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Want a raise? Don’t go into your boss’s office. This is the advice from UBCO assistant professor Graham Brown who is blazing a new trail in busi-

ness management by doing territoriality research on the office environment. While this niche may be quite common looking at animal behaviour in science, or even how we breakdown human behaviour in sports, approaching

the business world from a territorial space perspective to create a new form of relationship building within work environment is a bit new. “When you go into someone else’s territory, that’s where they’re stron-

effects and in reality it was not their office. Imagine if these people had been there for years?” said Brown. Brown is hoping to introduce the concept through a publication like the Harvard Business Review, which draws a wide base of readership among top executives, but said his work has traditionally caught the eye of trade publications. When he finished his doctorate at UBC Vancouver, he even did an interview for a publication in Brazil on the attachments and boundaries people set in their work environment. Perhaps somewhat ironically, the idea for his latest work stemmed from those same types of media sources.

“I was actually reading the newspaper and there was a quote that said when you want a raise, go to the boss’s office,” Brown said. “I thought that doesn’t make sense because I was already doing research in this area and I was thinking if people feel stronger in their own territory, or whatever, then you shouldn’t be going into their office.” Brown is now looking at subjects for his next study on transitions in business. He will be looking at how succession is handled and what makes for a successful handoff. Brown can be contacted at graham.brown@ ubc.ca jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

So both factors go on.” Brown designed his research to use students at the Singapore Management University where he was working, but said he has returned to Kelowna, in part because it’s close to his hometown of Nelson, but largely because he would like to start working in a corporate environment and prove his points in the field. This particular study used a series of fake office environments to prove people are less likely to succeed in a negotiation when not on their own turf, but in a real office the effects would likely be stronger, he said. “It’s a very complicated study, but in the end a very strong design.

Sgt. Ann Morrison said police have received three complaints about the woman, dating back to Oct. 26 and as recently as Nov. 9. “Each incident varies a bit but RCMP confirm that an unknown female has been targeting residents in the Rutland area and asking them for money,” said Morrison. “The female suspect is knocking on doors and telling people that she is pregnant and needs money for food. “She has targeted seniors and has been able to convince people to give her money and/or a ride to the store to get food.” “The female goes to great lengths to get cash and has even asked for the person’s debit card,” said Morrison. Police are asking anyone who gets a knock on their door by anyone alleging to be hard up for money to refuse and ask the person to leave. They also suggest anyone who gets such a visit call police to report the incident. The female suspect is described as being in her 20s, Caucasian, about 5-feet tall, 115 pounds, and may be using the first name Jen. Anyone with information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

W DOWNTOWN KELOWNA

Another bargain store closing Bernard Avenue will soon have a few less bargain basement deals to dole out. Signs have been posted outside the Bargain! Shop, claiming “End of Lease,” and “Everything

Must Go—Store Closing Forever.” A representative from the store was not available for comment, but 14 employees will be impacted by the closure. While the store’s impending closure

puts an end to decades of bargain hunting, it’s not the discount address under duress downtown. Last year Welk Mart, a longtime staple closed its Bernard Avenue doors due to issues with the ris-

ing cost of its lease. It was replaced within months by a similar store, called RayMart. Signs outside their doors report it has closed also, and signs on the door indicate the space is up for lease.

An illuminating idea for recycling If you’re putting up new LED lights this year, don’t throw your old light strings in the garbage. Recycle them. Just remove the bulbs and take the old strings to a recycling depot near you. “Last year’s light recycling program alone collected almost 1,800 kilograms of light strands,” said Rae Stewart, waste reduction facilitator with the regional district. “That’s a lot of material that was repurposed and smelted into new metal, instead of taking up space

in our landfill.” Stewart said recycling your old light strings instead of tossing them out is simple good sense, both environmentally and financially. “By upgrading your lights, you’ll be saving energy and money on your electricity bill, as LED (light emitting diode) lights use up to 95 per cent less energy than regular Christmas lights and last at least 10 times longer. “Plus, LED lights produce very little heat, so they reduce the risk of

fire.” Stewart said all the strings brought to the depots are picked up by Planet Earth Recycling Limited delivered to Davis Trading in Vancouver. There the strands are baled and sold to processing plants where the actual recycling takes place. Copper and copper alloys are re-melted, all plastic, and any other waste becomes new insulators for electrical wiring and plastic injection molding. This is the fifth year the recycling depots

have been accepting light strings. Recycling Depots are located at: • Kirschner Depot, 1988 Kirschner Rd, open daily, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. • Westside Residential Recycling Center, Asquith Rd, open daily, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. • Glenmore Landfill, 2105 Glenmore Rd, open daily, 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. • Planet Earth Recycling, 2035 Louie Dr., open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

DKA wants Saturday street parking fees relaxed In the tradition of supporting consumerist inclinations in time for Christmas, the Downtown Kelowna Association is asking the city to put a halt to Saturday downtown parking fees.

“As part of our holiday marketing and promotions, as we have in years past, we would like to be able to offer free parking in downtown Kelowna on street and city owned lots,” wrote Michele Spicer,

the DKA’s marketing and communications director. The city has moved forward in this direction in years past, and according to Spicer the most ideal time for it to happen would be from Nov. 27 to Dec. 31.

‘Proof’ evolution a hoax To the editor: The theory of evolution was expected to meet its comeuppance recently as Creation Ministry’s Dr. Sarfati visited the Okanagan, at UBCO on Oct. 22 and Vernon senior centre on the 23rd, to present the “science” confirming creationism, these days more often called Intelligent Design. This happened to be a particularly auspicious time for a lecture on creationism as the 23rd just happened to be the 6014th anniversary of creation, according to Ireland’s Archbishop James Ussher (1581-1656), though Dr. Sarfati did not specify so precise a date for when he thought God completed this arduous task, but it was certainly as described by Genesis. Sarfati focused on refuting the theory of evolution, with particular venom reserved for world renowned evolutionary biologist and militant atheist Richard Dawkins, whose book, the Greatest Show on Earth, Dr. Sarfati has laboured to repudiate with his own, The Greatest Hoax on Earth. According to Dr. Sarfati, all fossils were laid down by Noah’s flood over a matter of days. The evidence he offered for this hypothesis was that

Lessons from our veterans still not being heeded

T

he Vietnam war that the U.S. government was dragged into during the 1960s offered many historical lessons which since, unfortunately, continue to be ignored by our political leaders. Two such examples: you don’t win a guerilla war in someone else’s backyard, and don’t send troops to fight a battle that you aren’t prepared to win. The current military debacle in Afghanistan is a classic example of failures of those lessons on both counts. When you saw the veterans from the Second World War gathered for the Remembrance Day ceremonies around the Central Okanagan on Thursday, those are concepts they wouldn’t have faced in their time.

They were young men called to war at a time when you felt a moral duty to enlist to fight for your country, to win for the cause of our freedom. Back then, men and Barry women who served Gerding signed up first and asked questions later. Today, it seems to be the exact opposite. In my dad’s family, he along with his three older brothers all signed up in different military branches—army, navy and air force—during World War II. One of them, my Uncle Cecil, never came home, shot down over Holland as part of a bomber plane crew. Thousands of families across Canada endured similar losses. The Second World War was a brutal war that lasted over five years. While

EDITOR’S NOTE

we speak in terms of terrorism today, it barely casts a shadow over the horrors that people witnessed and took part in during WW II. I had a teacher in high school who talked one day about his experience landing on the beaches of Normandy in 1944. He told his story of how one of six German soldiers captured by his unit shot him in the head with a pistol he had hidden as they awaited to be paraded to a prisoner camp. What happened next? One of my teacher’s fellow soldiers immediately shot all six German soldiers. Case closed. If that were to happen today, the story would be reported, the 24-hour cable news commentators would jump all over it and the guy who shot the German soldiers would have to lawyer up for the subsequent military investigation. For soldiers fighting on our behalf,

those questions need not be at the forefront of their minds, surviving and ultimately winning should, at least that’s what a Canadian World War II vet would probably say. Today, we are so disenfranchised at times from reality, that our country is mixed up in a war that many of us rarely think about in our daily lives. This is even more so in the U.S., where jobs are more important to politicians than bringing home their troops, even though the war effort is slowly bankrupting the financial, social and moral consciousness of that country. I am thankful that the vets from the World War II era were prepared to fight, to sacrifice to protect our freedoms. I just wish the lessons they left future generations weren’t so readily forgotten today. Barry Gerding is managing editor of the Capital News.

W CITY PLANNING

Cedar area always intended for multi-uses To the editor: Some clarification is needed in response to a letter published in the Capital News on Nov. 10 regarding development plans for the Cedar Avenue area. The author of the letter attended an open house hosted by the City of Kelowna where the design plans were outlined for this location in the South Pandosy Town Centre. The writer expressed his “surprise to find a four-storey multi-use building shown in what I had previously thought was to be a park.” Your readers should know the 11 properties purchased individually in the Cedar Av-

enue area since the 1980s were never intended for exclusive use as a park. A two-acre linear park is part of the plan, but the entire parcel was never identified as a future park. During a land use review by the city in 1994, the property was identified as future mixed-use, meaning some residential, some commercial and some public open space. That intention was confirmed during another public land use review in 2004. The plan presented at the open house is reflective of the work that was done previously. South Pandosy is now well established as a popular mixed-use neighbourhood, where

residences, businesses and public spaces combine to give the area its distinct character. Waterfront access continues to be of paramount interest to residents and this project will add to the city’s popular linear park systems. Anyone with an interest in the future of the area can learn more about the history of the plan and find out what’s next in the public involvement process by visiting the web site: kelowna.ca/cityprojects.

W EARLY EDUCATION

Last year at home precious before starting Grade 1

t

To the editor: I have a five year old at home this year and we are thoroughly enjoying our full days together. There is something amazing about sharing the learning experience with a kindergartener. I think that teaching a child to read rates right up there with helping a child take his first steps. It’s a

magical time and I’m so grateful that I’m the one who gets to share it with my kindergartener, Charlie. I had a few concerns about kindergarten—at this age I want to make sure he gets enough down time. He should have time to relax and play. Being at home provides that. He should have qual-

ity academics. Being home allows me to tailor his academics to his pace and ability. He should have opportunities to develop friendships and to try new things. Because we get lots of down time during our week we have the flexibility to be involved in a variety of groups and classes outside of the

home where Charlie has friends of all ages. He should also have strong ties with his family. I love watching my 14-year-old practice violin with Charlie or take him into the kitchen to bake cookies together. Theirs is a special relationship that has had the time and space to develop. I’m thankful to live in the best place in the

world to educate a child. B.C. provides choice in education and having the right to choose to stay home is something I’m thankful for. Emotionally, academically, and socially this is turning out to be an incredible year filled with memories we’ll share for a lifetime. Sarah Bennett, Kelowna

Honour veterans between Remembrance Days To the editor: While I pause with pride and sorrow to remember those like my runcle George Steinhauer who lost his life over Norway near the end of WW2 with the rest of his bomber crew, my heart is tinged with shame, too, for I fear we dishonour them between each November 11th when we return to

“business as usual.” We dishonor them when vets returning from active duty must continue to fight for theirs and their families’ due. We dishonor them when, increasingly so, working families and more and more children (in Canada?!) are having to rely on food banks to get by.

We dishonor them when there’s a lack of adequate treatment facilities for the mentally ill and substance addicted and when health care is sold out to ‘health care management companies’ answerable not to Canadian taxpayers but to their dividend-hungry private investors. We dishonor them

when we practice partisan politics at the expense of doing the real downto-earth business of the people. So, on the days following Nov. 11, I resolve and challenge my fellow Canadians, to take up that torch referred to in Flanders Fields and continue honoring our vets— past and present—by do-

ing everything possible to fight that which we know would dishonor the memory of those we remember on Nov. 11. It’s not good enough to pay lip-service only every Remembrance Day without maintaining that remembrance each and every day. Liz Stonard, Port Alberni

t

Shaky ‘evidence’ for 6,000 year old Earth Devolve from A10 your pet goldfish would simply float belly-up when it died rather than sink and become fossilized. As conclusive proof he showed a couple of very nice fossils that had obviously died instantly and became fossilized, not in the generally accepted manner over millennia, but at the instant of “The Flood.” Geologists will be happy (or not) to hear that the Grand Canyon was gouged out overnight by the massive flood waters receding at colossal speed and volume. The eruption of Mount St. Helens is apparently sufficient proof to support this hypothesis as said eruption produced

a similar, though much smaller, formation. In view of this information, scientists will be forced to rethink their long cherished and scientifically tested theories. We can expect many to be looking for new careers just when unemployment is already quite high enough. Although Dr. Sarfati claims to be a biblical literalist, he seemed blissfully unconcerned that God demands all those who work on the Sabbath must be put to death, (Ex. 35:2), (Num. 15:32-36). Stoning seems to be God’s preference for this particular sin, though strangely, Dr. Sarfati seems to have escaped unscathed. God has been known

to play favourites on occasion. Some may cynically think Dr. Sarfati’s arguments to be more pseudo than science, but attendance at both UBCO and Vernon was well represented by adoring creationists, whilst skeptics, though annoyingly vocal, were greatly outnumbered. But then, we do live in an area generally regarded as a Bible belt. Reviews of Dawkins’ book have been unfailingly positive, with the Times of London reviewer stating: “Creationism and intelligent design are organized obscurantism. There is nothing left of them once Dawkins has finished. It is a magnificent

book.” On the other hand, the only positive reviews of Sarfati’s book appear in such publications as Creation Magazine. In the

mainstream media it appears to have been totally ignored. Guy King, Kelowna

T

hursday was Remembrance Day. At risk of sounding redundant, it is a day that should stay within our consciousness throughout the year. In my opinion, Remembrance Day is not a

day about war. It is a day about the men and women, parents and spouses who gave their lives, not as martyrs, but as people who died for what they believed in. We are the recipients of those actions. This is the one day we

set aside, as a society, to commemorate and honour those who simply gave all that they had to give in this lifetime. I find it disheartening that there are those who see it as just a long weekend. I do not know war, I

don’t pretend to. I hope I never see it in my lifetime or the lifetimes of our children. Our war veterans are truly heroes. Their courage, strength, honor and dedication should never be forgotten. I find it interesting that the Canadian soldiers had the highest ratio of those who volunteered for duty per capita, of any nation involved in World War I and World War II. I cannot imagine leaving my wife, children and life here to fight a war thousands of miles away, all knowing that I may not come back. And yet, there was an entire generation that volunteered to do so. That is no less than remarkable. Indeed, heroes walk among us. Last year, my family and I attended the Remembrance Day ceremony at the City Park War

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel Memorial. The ceremony was preceded by a parade, one in which the veterans led the charge through the streets and into the very heart of the ceremony. It was well attended. Along the sides of the streets, we were shoulder to shoulder, in an attempt to see these individuals of which legends are made of. The applause rose steadily as they approached. Closer, closer‌the drums got louder, the horns blared and there they were. Large as life, right there, we could almost

reach out and touch them. The hearts and tears of all of us filled, with the exception of a teenage girl behind me who said: “Now that’s old!� She was the recipient of about 15 dirty looks and a proper schooling by her parents. My mood quickly changed when my fouryear-old daughter pulled on my coat gesturing me to come down to her level and she said to me, “Dad, are all heroes old like grandpa?� It was a very touching thing that she had said. Earlier in the year, my wife and I had a new baby boy. He was no more than a week old when I came home from work only to find my wife in the bathroom crying inconsolably. Her cousin, one that she considered as her own brother, Capt. Steven Leary, a platoon commander with the Princess

Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, had been killed in action in Afghanistan earlier that day. He was the 84th Canadian to die in that conflict. It was very difficult to see his picture on the front page of all the national newspapers. It is out of respect for him that our son now carries his name in memory of who he was and what he did. To our veterans, young and old, I extend to you my deepest gratitude and respect, you are truly Titans. I believe that it is because of what you did that my generation has not known war. Now having said that, is a minute of silence too much to ask? Markus Thiel is a chiropractor practicing in Kelowna. Questions and comments may be sent to askdrthiel@shaw.ca

Way to cure an elusive illness

D

o you know of someone in your life that has a difficult time being around perfume and other scented products? Maybe it gives them headaches or just plain makes them feel sick somehow. Or does the smell of dryer exhaust make you want to hold your breath or run in the opposite direction? Then you or someone you know suffers from an illness that is called multiple chemical sensitivities, also known as environmental illness.

EMOTIONAL RESCUE

Annie Hopper The symptoms of MCS can range from mild to severe in nature, ranging from headaches to central nervous system convulsions as reactions to the same amount of exposure to chemicals found in everyday products. Those who are severe in nature often need to live in complete isolation and need to wear a mask or respirator to leave their home. In fact, many who suffer from this condition don’t even know that there is a name for it or that there is something that can be done about it. And for many they have exhausted themselves in trying to seek an answer to an illness that neither the traditional medical system nor alternative health care system can effectively treat. That is because this illness is neither an allergy nor is it strictly about chemical overload. A chemical injury catapults the brain into a chronic protective mechanism that results in a maladapted stress response. This triggers a chronic fight or flight state that causes havoc on the rest of the systems of the body. So what’s the good news? See HopperA14

Do You Go Klunk? When you stretch your arms, look over your shoulder, bend over to tie your shoes, or open your mouth wide to yawn do you go “klunk”? Or do you hear snaps, pops, or crunches when you move? While it is common to experience joint noises when we move it is in no way normal. If you make noises when you move get them evaluated and treated, before they get worse. Our joints are supported by connective tissues such as ligaments. Our ligaments are made up of strands of collagen, which are normally aligned to look like the fibers of a new rope. Through over use or accidents the collagen strands can become stretched, frayed, and weakened like an old and worn rope. To compensate for the misalignment in our joints, caused by stretched ligaments, our muscles take up the slack, but only for so long before they become knotted and tired. Knotted and tired muscles can be effectively treated with massage therapy. Misaligned joints can be effectively adjusted by Doctors of Chiropractic. However, neither of these treatments will give lasting relief if you have stretched and weakened ligaments. To treat ligament problems you need to consider “Prolo Therapy”. “Prolo Therapy” is a group of medical treatments that research has shown will cause stretched, weak, and worn ligaments and tendons to “proliferate” and produce new, stronger, and realigned collagen fibers and strands. “Prolo Therapy” is taught by a number of medical organizations, including the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine and the Hackett Hemwall Foundation through the University of Wisconsin in Madison Wisconsin. Both of these organizations teach the injection of dextrose as the most common and safest preparation for “Prolo Therapy”. Dextrose is a form of sugar, and it is used in concentrations of 15% for where ligaments and tendons attach to bones, and in concentrations of 25% when injected directly inside of a joint. Dr. Frank Schallenberger out of Reno Nevada also teaches the injection of ozone gas, for the regeneration of joints, in a procedure he calls “Prolozone”. If you go klunk when you move, your muscles are knotted, and massage and Chiropractic treatments never seem to last, then you need to get evaluated for “Prolo Therapy”.

Brain’s healing powers Hopper from A13 Many are now recovering from this mysterious and often disabling condition through neuroplasticity. In fact chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and anxiety disorders are related illnesses that have also been healed through rewiring brain function. The brain truly is the centre for optimal health and when you change brain function, it changes everything. This new awareness is driving a revolution in health care. Below are the words of Thilde, a young Danish woman who is 39 years old and has recovered from severe MCS. This was written only four weeks after attending dynamic neural retraining system seminars: “When I attended the program about a month ago I had suffered from severe MCS for over eight years. I had tried many different treatments but none of them were really helpful. “I had to wear a gas mask whenever I entered the real world and I was still getting sick from residual chemicals and fragrance on my clothes and hair. “I was often depressed and suicidal as I had spent most of my 30s living a painful, sad and lonely life. I did not know how I would manage to continue to live this way. “Since taking (the) program, I have been able to function in this world again, without wearing a mask. I have been to many public places, like stores, doctor’s offices and am now able to pump my own gas. “In the past these simple activities would leave me sick for days.In fact, yesterday I spent two hours clothes shopping in a very fragrant mega mall and I had no reactions at all. “I’m happy now and I look forward to my future. “My current goals are to create a network of friends, to have more fun and to do things that give me meaning.” Annie Hopper is a core belief counsellor and brain retraining specialist. 250-862-1766 info@dnrsystem.com

W REMEMBRANCE DAY

Response of young people comforting I HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge appreciate the extreme sacrifice that so many young men and women made in past years. Quite often today we hear sentiments of concern for our future world and the young folks who will run it. From what I saw and heard earlier this week, however, those concerns are largely unfounded. My hat is off to KSS staff and students, and the young folk of Rutland, who turned out in droves to pay their respect. Well done! â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ I make no qualms about my enthusiasm for next weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual musical fundraiser at the Kelowna Community Theatre. On Nov. 20 at Kelowna Community Theatre the sixth annual Night of the Arts concert and silent auction will kick into action and I hope we have a full house. Admission is by donation and the amazing night of music will feature eight Okanagan musical acts donating their time for the fundraiser to assist youth in our community. Robert Fine and his Dreamland Band (a 14piece orchestra) headline

this year. Joining Fine as performers are multiple award winning Canadian folk and gospel star Corey Doak, the superb Bluegrass band Day Late and A Dollar Short, Gary Smyth, Cowboy Bob, the Deb Stone Band, Color &Tone, and the spellbinding Balmoral Orchestra (featuring three members of Ten2Nine). In addition, several Okanagan artists will also contribute pieces of work towards the silent auction including Cyndy Bannister, Jim Krahn, Dave Stratten and Alex Fong. Above and beyond the silent auction and concert 10 Okanagan bands have donated their time and talent towards an 11-song Christmas CD titled An Okanagan Christmas. Five of the songs featured are original Christmas songs. All proceeds

name, but suffice to say this community is blessed by his ongoing caring for others. What a trooper! Once again Tulman will also be the stage manager for the annual concert joined by sound man extraordinaire John Adams, associate stage manager Gary Smyth and students from Centre for Arts and Technology Okanagan (CATO), as well as backstage manager Bernard Shelvey. It should be a fabulous night Nov. 20 and I encourage you to come and fill the seats for this worthwhile and fun event. The multiple musicians who give up their time for this worthwhile event certainly deserve a full house of music fans. See you then. For further information contact The Bridge at 250-763-0456.

had the pleasure of attending two separate Remembrance Day celebrations this past week and left both of them with a comforting feeling. The future of our nation is indeed in good hands with the current younger generation. On Nov. 11, I joined hundreds of other area residents in taking part in the Armistice Day service in Rutland. Relatively fine weather encouraged residents of all ages to take in the well organized eventâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including a plethora of teenagers. On Wednesday, Nov. 10, I also had the pleasure of visiting my old high school (the KSS building and location may be new â&#x20AC;&#x201D;but the school name is the same) and took part in that event as well. Thousands of students were on hand for the ceremony, largely conducted by the students. It was a tremendous tribute, featuring veteran soldiers and young people sharing the stage. From the student speakers, musicians, choir members, and teachers involved to those simply in attendanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the gathering was top notch and impressive.

PUBLIC HEARING NOVEMBER 22, 2010 The Regional District of Central Okanagan Board has scheduled a Public Hearing for 7:00 p.m., Monday, November 22, 2010, at the Regional District of Central Okanagan in the Woodhaven Board Room, 1450 KLO Road, in regard to the following amendments:

But, what about a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first dental visit? Is that any different? You bet! And if your child has a good experience, a happy visit, you can expect your child will look forward to return visits to the dental office. Sounds unbelievable doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the logic behind the recommendation from the Canadian Dental Association, that a child visit the dentist by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth appearing. In the first year of life, a child visits their physician at scheduled intervals so that the physician and parents can make sure that all is well. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why these visits are called well-baby visits. The physician examines the baby and listens to parental concerns all within the context of the babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developmental stage. Dealing with small problems early prevents them from becoming larger problems later. That same logic applies to dental visits early

in life. There was a time when parents were advised to bring their child for their first dental visit when the child was around three years of age. The thinking was that a three-year-old child will have all of their baby teeth, will be reasonably cooperative and could have simple conversations. Sadly, this out-ofdate â&#x20AC;&#x153;thinkingâ&#x20AC;? is still very prevalent today. As a result, many dental offices are still seeing threeyear-olds who have lots of tooth decay. Had those three-yearolds been seen between 12 to 18 months of age, it is likely that potentially harmful habits could have been intercepted or modified and tooth decay prevented. But dental visits

are about more than tooth decay and oral health is about more than healthy teeth. Dental visits not only involve an oral examination, they may also include information about and demonstration of tooth-brushing and flossing, a discussion about soothers and thumb-sucking, counseling for oral injury prevention, discussion about fluoride usage, dietary counseling relevant to oral health and counseling for speech and language development to name a few components of oral health. Parents of the threeyear-old child who has been having previous regular visits will have learned many oral teeth care lessons to be applied at home with their kids. Having regular dental visits early in life also allows parents to receive answers to their questions as their child develops. Establishing the dental home at an early age provides parents and children with continuity of care

and a place where parents can obtain reliable information. The bottom line is thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if children see the dentist by 12 months of age, or within six months of the first tooth appearing, the probability is very high they will grow up experiencing excellent oral health. Early visits provide children opportunities to develop a relationship with their dental care providers and comfort with the dental environment, which dentists admit can be somewhat intimidating. And excellent oral health means happy children at the dental office and big cost savings for parents. The best way to prevent a problem is to be informed about its existence before it becomes your problem.

enough sleepâ&#x20AC;? diseases I recognize that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not possible to do everything. Picking and choosing is necessary and prioritizing is key. If my column sometimes feels like a self serving therapy session for me, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably an accurate assumption. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m clearly no expert in psychology or organization, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to play nurse to both of my afflictions. If I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t acknowledge these weaknesses and make some changes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get sick for sure, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that. Maybe my children have the right idea about faking it now and again. Having a little downtime is something we all need. getting enough shuteye is exactly when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m most susceptible to getting sick, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do that right now. Playing nurse to my family is one thing, but playing nurse to myself is a job I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want, which can only mean one thing: somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to give. Afflicted with both the â&#x20AC;&#x153;try to do too much,â&#x20AC;? and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get kind of person who snores at the movie theatre - like me. I know that sleep is incredibly important, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one thing I never seem to get enough of. Like many parents, when my children are finally in bed I see it as a great opportunity to get stuff done uninterrupted. If I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dozing off while trying to work, this plan might actually work. Of course, wearing myself out like this and not a busy day of work. Three hours later I got a call from the school secretary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Daisyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sick and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the arena,â&#x20AC;? she said. When I arrived Daisy was throwing up into a garbage bin with another mother holding her hair back for her. I guess she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faking it after all. Her teacher and 70 other kids all went home from school with the flu that day. Daisy felt fine the next morning, after a day of rest and an extra long sleep, but then my son became sick and my husband was next. I marveled that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come down with it, especially considering the lack of sleep and the amount of stress Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been living with lately. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so tired Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m literally nodding off as I type this. Who falls asleep sitting up anyway? Probably the whined, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel well.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just hungry,â&#x20AC;? I told her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have some cereal y seven year old daughter Daisy held her belly a few mornings ago and

Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great poet who wrote the Song of the Chattahoochee that alludes to aquatic imagery such as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;willful waterweeds,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;laving laurel,â&#x20AC;? and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;little reeds (that) sighed Abide, abide.â&#x20AC;? The lake, with almost 700 miles of shoreline, 38,000 acres of surface area, and hundreds of islands, drains from the Chattahoochee River through Buford Dam. Since it was created in the 1950s it has become Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite getaway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The water is so clean and pristine because silt from the Chattahoochee is settled by the time it gets

here,â&#x20AC;? says Stacey Dickson, president of the Lake Lanier Convention & Visitors Bureau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a clear sunny day, the water is as blue as sapphires.â&#x20AC;? But the water isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t why Lake Lanier is special during the holidays. From Nov. 20 through Dec. 30, its skies are aglow with the Magical Nights of Lights, a seven-mile driving tour that meanders past hundreds of illuminated characters like Santa Claus, angels, reindeer, elves, and everything else Christmas. The characters are created from millions of twinkling lights that bedazzle the senses in an ex-

travaganza of colour and sound. The Magical Nights is one of Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved seasonal institutions. So much labor goes into the project that work begins in September. By Oct. 1 and going through Oct. 31, the lights first form a ghoulish display for Halloween called the Haunted Nights of Lights. Then crews work daily until mid-November to transform the haunted landscape to a heavenly scene. While most guests drive cars or a pickup truck loaded with family and friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this is Geor-

Greek island rooted in natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fury John Bordsen CONTRIBUTOR

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it like to live in a far-off place most of us see only on a vacation? Foreign Correspondence is an interview with someone who lives in a spot you may want to visit. George Karayian-

nis, 47, is manager of Astra Suites (www.astra.gr), a boutique hotel on the Greek island of Santorini, in the Aegean Sea. He is originally from Athens and has lived on Santorini 24 years. Q. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said Santorini is one of two places in Europe with a desert climate.

Ph. 250-308-8224 or 250-547-9430 endlessdestinations.ca

What is that like? A. In spring we have some rain, but not that much. This year thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been none since the end of February. March through May, we usually get three or four days with a bit of rain, which makes everything green and there are flowers everywhere. Summer is dry, and the weather is pleasant through autumn, when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less humid. The island was formed from volcanic lava; some islands like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;like Baliâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are green year-round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the opposite here: very dry and no green trees except a few olive trees. Everywhere you can see the different colors of different eruptionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;red lava, white lava and black lava stones. Q. Does this give Santorini colored beaches? A. The beaches are black sand, a fine sand that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick to your skin. We have one called Red Beach, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of the dramatic red cliffs that rise behind it. Sand that eroded from those cliffs is red. The water is deep blue and clear. In September,

the water temperature is about 20 C (68 Fahrenheit). Q. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sleeping volcano on Santorini; is there ever a concern about it going active? A. There are many earthquakes around the area, but that has nothing to do with the volcano. Many are confused about this. The last major quake was in 1956. The last volcanic eruption was in 1936. Photographers came from all over the world for that, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t major and there was no major damage on the island. Q. But it does give off steam, right? A. Yes. Santorini was created from lava centuries and centuries ago, creating a round island; the center of that volcano is underwater. The first name for the island was Strogili, which means â&#x20AC;&#x153;roundâ&#x20AC;? in Greek. The volcano today is a little islandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Nea Kameniâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the middle of the ancient, water-filled crater. On the top of the volcano, there are some holes that steam comes out of. There are excursions

FROM THE POOL and the bar at Astra Suites, guests can see all the way to the village of Oia on Santoriniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern tip to the island, and you can go up there. If you stand there, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very warm. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even put your hand close to the holes. We recommend you wear sneakers, not sandals. Q. Legend and history play into an ancient eruption, around 2000 to 1580 BC. Can you explain what happened? A. The big eruption that took place around 1600 BC was so big that the central part of the island disappeared. They say it caused a huge tsunami that destroyed the Minoan civilization of Crete, one that reached Crete in about two hours with waves 200 feet high. Some say Atlantis was here and was destroyed by the tsunami, but nobody knows. From then until about 400 years ago, the center of the volcano was under water. Then eruptions took place every 80 or 100 years that built the new cone on the little island. Q. The best ancient Minoan site outside of Crete, Akrotiri, is on Santorini. How far is it from your resort, and what is that like? A. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 15 minutes by car from Astra Suites. The excavations are really amazing. The whole town was literally covered by lava for thousands of years, and the lava kept it well preserved. In the last few years a roof was being built over it, so tourists have been unable to go through the site. They

hope that by the end of 2011 it will be open again. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there many times. You can see the main square of the village and its two-story houses. You can see where stone steps cracked. In the storage areas of the houses, they found seeds of what people were eating at the time of the eruption. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t found bones of people or animals, indicating the residents had warning of the explosion and left the island before the huge eruption. Q. The Minoans, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders and Turks lived there and left ruins. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most impressive to see? A. Besides the one I just described, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the city of Thera, which was at the top of the mountain before the eruption. You can go through the whole town, which is phenomenal. Back then they even had a water and sewage system. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really impressive and worth seeing. It is at the highest point of the island, and the view from there is spectacular. Cities were built at their highest points, to be protected from their nemeses. The same logic was used when the Venetians were around (1207-1580) and built castles with high walls, for protection from pirates. There are four or five Venetian castles on Santorini; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ruins now. The most famous is in front of our property, on the Rock of Skaros. Q. What else should people check out?

A. Santorini is famous for its beautiful sunsets, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular destination for honeymooners. There are many traditional little towns here that you have to walk through, like Megalochori. The biggest village is halfway to the mountainâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Pyrgosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and it also has the ruins of a castle. In a restaurant called Celine is a museum that shows you how people lived 100 years ago, how they made favaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a traditional Santorini dishâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and several other specialties. Before Santorini got involved with tourism in the late 1970s, the main product was wine. Even now, there are more than six large wineries. Santorini wine is famous because of the variety of grapes and the volcanic earth. The wine is very fruity and strong. There used to be large tomato factories, too, that manufactured tomato paste. Even now Santorini is famous for its small cherry tomatoes. They grow in volcanic earth and without watering: They get moisture from humidity at night that becomes water when the sun comes up. Because the plants arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watered by growers, they get a characteristically strong taste. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Know someone who lives in an interesting country who would like to give us the inside line on visiting there?

SHOWCASE W RADIUS

Kelowna location offers ideal lifestyle option THE RADIUS development offers a balance of contemporary living with traditional comfort. CONTRIBUTED

Nadean Wright, with Pentar Homes, talks about her company’s new Kelowna project that combines townhomes and condominiums in one development. Shauna Nyrose CONTRIBUTOR

Question: Briefly give us an overview of Radius. Wright: Radius is a modern community of townhomes and condos in mid-town Kelowna offering a lifestyle that is a refreshing balance between distance and proximity, work and play, style and comfort. With a total of 56 homes, Radius is a multifamily project with floor plans that range from 783 to 1,522 square-feet, with prices starting at $325,000 up to $425,000, including HST. The homes at Radius are professionally designed and beautifully crafted to balance contemporary and traditional comfort. Our homes offer practical and desirable features such as 9-foot high ceilings, five energy efficient stainless steel appliances, separate walkin showers, extra large patios, gas fireplaces and a five year National Home

Warranty. Our passion for superior quality, as well as quality of life, is evident throughout Radius. From low maintenance brick and hardwood exterior finishes to large patios and beautiful landscaping, we are really excited to have set a new standard in community living with Radius. Q: Tell us a little about your location and the key amenities in the area. What makes midtown Kelowna area such a great community to live in? Wright: Location, lo-

cation, location! Radius is close to everything. Just outside your door, Mission Creek Greenway is the perfect place to get some exercise and enjoy the splendid natural environment. Across the street, you can catch the latest flick across the street at the Famous Players Cinemas or go shopping with a friend at Kelowna’s largest shopping centre, Orchard Park Plaza. The mid-town area also has so many great restaurants. Radius is also ideally located just minutes from the Landmark

community and CATO gives many potential buyers the opportunity to live within walking distance from work or school. Q: What is different or unique about Radius over other new, multi-family communities? Why is this important to home buyers? Wright: In 1994, Pentar Homes purchased the first home on Vasile with the intent to acquire surrounding properties to eventually build a contemporary residential community in one of Kelowna’s most desirable and upcoming neighbourhoods. Radius is the culmination and we feel strongly that fact that buyers can actually see what they are buying gives us an advantage. The exterior styling is striking and attractive and there are homes that would be a great fit for any age and stage. We are mindful that our buyers place value and quality at the forefront. At Radius low strata fees are possible as a result of including practical yet durable features. These include premium tile and engineered hardwood flooring, quality window coverings, granite countertops on wood cabinetry , modern lofts on top floor units, See Lifestyle A25

First-time buyers shouldn’t be financial slave to their home D����� S���� CONTRIBUTOR

In my more than 29 years of being employed by a financial institution, it has always been instilled in me how it’s important to guide those first-time home buyers to not over-extend themselves. To me, it’s like the purchase of that first car. I would really love to buy that Mercedes, but can I really afford it? We get that rush thinking how great it would be sitting in those heated leather seats, but when you sit down and do a financial budget, you realize you can’t afford it. So instead, you are willing to let reality set in and purchase a vehicle that’s reliable, you can afford to place insurance on it and have enough left over from your pay cheque to fill it up with gas on regular basis. You can even have money left over for a little bit of a savings account and other living expenses. Then over time, you

know that expensive vehicle will be a target to achieve when you have the financial where-withall to purchase it. The same can be said when you look for your first home. It would be great to have that larger, two-car garage home with a fantastic lake view and a nice yard. Initial thoughts are you can afford it but it will be tight financially. But the right thing to do would be to start off with a lesser sized home that will be in your budget. Today, that could be a condo or townhome. Yes, it isn’t your dream home but it is an asset you can call your own. That larger home can be something you can strive for. My reasoning for lowering your expectations to a smaller unit to live in is for the following reasons: For example, payments on a $150,000 mortgage will be less, in most cases, than you would be paying for rent; You never know what

‘‘

IN CONSIDERING WHAT TYPE OF HOME YOU PURCHASE YOU MUST REALIZE THAT INTEREST RATES WILL EVENTUALLY CLIMB.

the future may hold but one thing we, in the financial business know, is interest rates today are at historic lows. In considering what type of home you purchase, you must realize that interest rates will eventually climb. Saying that, when the mortgage interest rate on that $150,000 climbs by even two per cent and your wages don’t increase at the same rate, the strain on your finances will weigh heavily on your lifestyle. Now, imagine if your mortgage was double the $150,000 amount. What

affect would that interest rate increase have on you? You could hopefully build up equity in your home quicker by making your mortgage payment higher. For example, rather than have your payments calculated based on a 35year amortization, set them at a 25-year amortization instead. Instead of monthly payments have them set up on a rapid bi-weekly or weekly payment schedule. By doing that you will pay down the mortgage faster. By doing some of the above, you will hopefully be able to manage your finances and can focus on the future to purchase that dream home. And if you do things correctly, you just might end up with that Mercedes one day.

Kennedy national Soccer Player oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Year, Paterson top coach Two members of the UBC Okanagan Heat womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team were named national award winners last week. Player Alexa Kennedy was named the Canadian Colleges Athletic Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer player of the year, while UBCO womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Claire Paterson was named the CCAA coach of the year. A striker with UBCO, Kennedy had an outstanding year scoring 13 goals in 12 games, seven of which were game winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alexa has developed a nose for goals,â&#x20AC;? explained Paterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is able to score when her team needs it most, making her a very dangerous player for the Heat.â&#x20AC;?

Every year, several athletes from the UBC Okanagan Heat play in the Pacific Coast Premiere division during the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off season.

Paterson is also involved with youth development programs for Kelowna United, City of Kelowna and WhiteCaps FC. Both Paterson and Kennedy received a CCAA customized ring provided by Jostens Canada, the official ring supplier of the CCAA championship awards banquet.

Rockets ready for test Rockets from A29 home we were a little scattered sometimes.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become sports clichĂŠ that teams sometimes play better on the road, with less distractions and not as much pressure to play well in front of your home fans. In a perfect world, Huska says his team would be putting out the same effort regardless of where they play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideally weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see them play the same way at home and on the road,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier said than done.â&#x20AC;? So far Kelowna has been pretty good on the road. With wins last week in Kamloops and in Vancouver, the Rockets climbed to .500 on the road with four wins and four losses. Kelowna was in Kamloops Saturday night and will head to Prince George for a pair of games

next weekend, playing the Cougars on Friday and Saturday nights. Huska said playing a double-header in Prince George is always tough and this year the Cougars are a much-improved club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always want to look for two wins, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your goal to win hockey games every time you play,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Prince George is a much different team this year than they have been. You want to make sure you go up and get some points but at the same time you have to be realistic and realize they are a much better team this year.â&#x20AC;? The Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; road show will also appear over the next month in Spokane and in Chilliwack before a five-game, seven-day trip right before Christmas. From Dec. 10 to 17 Kelowna will play in Red Deer, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and Calgary.

The time right before players go home for Christmas can give coaches headaches. But Huska likes heading out on the road before the Christmas break. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absolutely,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a little tighter grasp on what they are doing during the day and we can keep them prepared and focussed. When we are at home we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have quite the same influence. Typically that time of the year is when a little homesickness sets in, especially for the younger players.â&#x20AC;? Following that trip the Rockets bus will head home virtually empty, save for the coaching and other hockey staff. The majority of Rockets players will fly home for Christmas from Calgary, the day after they play the Hitmen on Dec. 17. They will return to Kelowna for games on Dec. 28 and 30. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Midget Rockets to defend as champs Many of the names and faces have changed, but the Kelowna junior Rockets have every intention of once again challenging for the B.C. midget tier 1 boys hockey championship. Heading into this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action in Prince George, the Rockets had posted a 13-5 overall record, with three of those wins coming last weekend at Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual tournament at Memorial Arena. The Rockets beat Ridge Meadows, North Shore and Calgary, before dropping their semifinal game 5-3 to Richmond. Kelowna actually held a 3-0 lead on Richmond before surrendering five unanswered goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were in complete control against what is rated the best team in the province, but we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold on,â&#x20AC;? said Rockets coach Brent Gilchrist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We backed down, took some key penalties and they roared back and

beat us. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a highly skilled team, but we were right there with them.â&#x20AC;? Gilchrist said the 2010-11 team isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as quick as last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial champs but they are much bigger physically. He said the potential is there for another productive spring of hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know our guys can play with anybody, but we also know we need to see some improvement,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tall order to compete with the top teams in the province.â&#x20AC;? For the second consecutive year, the Rockets will face some top-notch competition at the Kelowna International Major Midget Tournament in January. Last season, the Rockets reached the semifinals at the 12-team event before being ousted by the BCMMLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Okanagan Rockets. Then in February, Kelowna will look to repeat as Okanagan Mainline champs to qualify for another crack at the B.C.

W JUNIOR CURLING

Ursel was close to representing B.C. at Canada Winter Games Kelowna junior curler Brady Ursel came within a hair of advancing to the 2011 Canada Winter Games last weekend in Vernon. Curling out of the Vernon Curling Club, Ursel found himself playing Daniel Wenzek of Victoria in the final game with the right to advance to the Canada Games on

the line. Ursel had handed Wenzek his only loss of the round robin and with the final tied 3-3 and with Ursel holding the hammer, things looked promising for another win. But Wenzek’s final stone was a perfect draw to the top of the button, buried behind two guards. Ursel tried to follow

it down with the hammer but it was too good of a shot to beat and Wenzek stole the victory, winning 5-3. The Victoria rink won the right to represent B.C. at the Canada Games in Halifax Feb. 11 to 27. Ursel was 2-and-1 through the round robin before advancing to the final.

W DE QUERVAINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S THUMB

Repetitive, awkward movements can lead to painful thumb

I

n the clinic, I commonly treat a tendonitis of the thumb called de Quervainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenosynovitis. It is characterized by pain and tenderness between the base of the thumb and where your watch strap would sit on your arm. De Quervainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenosynovitis develops when the tendons of the thumb become inflamed from repetitive thumb movement or awkward, sustained thumb positions. To be more specific, it is the lining of the tendon sheath (the tendon is within a sheath or sleeveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; think of wire and how it

KEEPING YOU MOVING

Robina Palmer is wrapped in insulation) that becomes inflamed. There are two tendons of the thumb that share a common sheath or sleeve. Certain repetitive and overuse movements of the thumb can create excessive friction between the two tendons and their sheath, resulting in inflammation.

Theses repetitive motions of the thumb can include typing, writing, gripping, grasping and twisting or wringing. De Quervainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tenosynovitis is 10 times more common in females, tends to develop in the dominant hand, but not always, and usually occurs between 35 to 55 years of age. It is common among individuals who sew, play the piano and fly fish. It is also very common in mothers with new babies. The onset of pain is usually gradual. Tenderness to the thumb side of the wrist, at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;watch

strap levelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, is the primary complaint. Often the pain will radiate up into the forearm. Pain or discomfort is reproduced when the thumb is tucked into a fist and the wrist is tipped towards the little finger. Decreased gripping and pinching strength is often reported. Swelling may or may not be present. Over time, nodules may be felt in the two tendons. In severe cases there may be a snapping or catching sensation with thumb movement. The treatment for de Quervainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is rest, avoid-

ing or minimizing the irritating activity, ice and immobilization (bracing or splinting) of the thumb and wrist. Treatment should also include soft tissue techniques and wrist mobilizations to restore normal tendon and wrist mobility. If you think you may have de Quervainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teno-

synovitis, your physiotherapist can assess your thumb and wrist and provide you with the appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises. Modalities used by your physiotherapist such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation can also help to reduce inflammation, promote blood flow

and assist in the healing process. Robina Palmer is a registered physiotherapist and co-owner of Sun City Physiotherapy. She can be reached at the downtown location on St. Paul Street at 250-861-8056, or by emailing rpalmer@ suncityphysiotherapy.com

More Falcons baseball to enjoy watching next season Fans of the Kelowna Falcons will have a few more opportunities to watch their team next baseball season as the West Coast League team has announced its 2011 schedule. The Falcons will play 54 games, an increase of six games over last season, 27 of which will be regular season home games at Elks Stadium. There will also be two showcase games at Elks during the Falcons 11th season of play. The Falcons will face each West Coast League team six times and will play an additional six games against a natural geographical rival: Bellingham and Wenatchee. “We like the schedule and are excited to see how our players adapt to the extended season,” said Falcons’ general manager Mark Nonis. “It’s nice to have Bellingham back in our division as they’re our closest rival. I’ve always liked starting on the road and the fact we start in Bellingham gives our guys a taste of life on the road in the WCL. Now

that the schedule has been released we can begin to plan the rest of the summer.” For the second consecutive year, the Falcons will start the season on the road in Bellingham against the Bells in a three game series. In 2011 the Bells become a Falcons division rival moving from the West Division to the East because of the expansion into Klamath Falls (Ore). The Falcons will face the Bells nine times during the regular season. The Falcons traditional free home opener will be Friday, June 10, when they host the Portland Lobos in the first of a two game showcase series. The Falcons will get their first chance for payback against the two time defending champion Wenatchee Applesox Tuesday, June 7, in game one of a three game set in Wenatchee. The Falcons will host the Sox July 1921. Game times at Elks have been adjusted for the 2011 season to start at 6:35 p.m. with the excep-

HEADACHES, HOT AIR BALLOONS AND HEALING! It may be hard to believe but there are days in a Pastor’s life that just get ‘hairy’! One morning I found myself in a bit of a frazzle. Our Senior Pastor was at a convention. I had 14 kids at the church at 7AM for breakfast and then took them to school in a borrowed van because our two regular vehicles had broken down earlier in the week. I was feeling run down, facing a big weekend and becoming quickly overwhelmed with the tasks ahead of me. As I came back from dropping the children at school, I checked the time, worried that I would be arriving late at a local cemetery where a family I had not met before was patiently waiting for me, because I still needed to double check my directions. By the time I found the cemetery directions and finished with a phone call that had come in while I was just ‘dashing in’, I realized I would indeed have to apologize for my lack of punctuality - and took one step closer to the breaking point in my frazzled world! As I drove my borrowed van, I was on edge. I had to find a balance between the fast pace I needed to take to catch up on time yet obey the speed limit, all the while watching traffic and not crashing my friend’s van. By the time I arrived at the bridge, I was in quite a frenzy; praying for God to move the traffic a little faster. I looked up at the sky and there, very pale across the lake, was a beautiful hot air balloon floating lazily along. It looked so serene and peaceful as it hung in the air with such ease and grace. In that moment, a great peace came over me and I felt calm. The frazzled feelings went away and I felt a confidence that only comes from our amazing God.

Q.

Why is antifreeze harmful to dogs and cats?

A.

Antifreeze contains ethylene glycol. The substance tastes sweet and is readily ingested by animals. At first, animals will show signs of drunkenness. Later they develop lung or heart problems. In the final stage, pets get extremely depressed, dehydrated, and die from kidney failure. Ethylene glycol is not poisonous by itself and will only make your pet act drunk. It is, however, converted in the liver to very toxic substances that cause irreversible kidney damage. Your pet can be saved if you seek veterinary assistance immediately. Unfortunately, often the problem is recognized too late. There are new antifreeze products on the markets that are labeled nontoxic. Most automotive ones still contain ethylene glycol with bitter tasting additive. There are however a few brands (Amsoil, Kooltone and Sierra for example) made of propylene glycol that is much safer, and does not affect your car’s performance. Ask you mechanic at your next coolant flush. Any automotive spill of antifreeze should be meticulously cleaned, just in case.

Why should I “winterize” my vehicle?

A.

Winter is hard on a vehicle- even here in the Okanagan! A “Winterize” usually starts with an oil change. Many people prefer a high quality synthetic oil for more reliable starts in the winter. Next is a battery load test so you don’t get stranded with a dead battery. All fluid levels are also checked and topped up if needed. Wiper blades are inspected as it’s recommended they get replaced once per year. If you’re not putting winter tires on your vehicle, we will also look at your current tires for tread condition and rotate them if necessary. At this point, a full brake inspection will also be performed. An often overlooked part of your vehicle is the indicator lights and headlights. As it gets darker earlier, it is important for all of your signal, reverse, braking and headlights to be working. Also included in your “Winterize” is a full cooling system check. This includes checking the radiator condition and checking hoses for cracking. We also look at coolant strength, as it’s important to have a -40 antifreeze rating. If you haven’t already had a coolant flush at some point in the past year, this would be a good time to have one done as they are recommended approximately every 50,000km.

Q.

II am very conscious of all the sugars in packaged and prepared foods. As I try to avoid these, I still find it confusing as to what is acceptable as a “healthy” sweetener.

A.

It can be extremely confusing as we try to make the “healthy “ choices in sweeteners.”Splenda” is a chlorinated artificial sweetener made up of “dextrose”,”maltodextrin” and “sucralose”. Studies from Duke’s University have found that “Splenda suppresses “beneficial bacteria”

and interferes with the bioavailability of some drugs and nutrients.”Aspartame”, found in most diet drinks , is made up of two amino acids fused together with methanol which breaks down into formaldehyde, a poison!The only two sweeteners I would label as “healthy” would be “Stevia” and “Xylitol”, recommended by the Diabetic Society. Stevia, made from a leaf and Xylitol made from the bark of a tree.Only these two sweeteners will not result in the release of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates energy and glucose metabolism in the body. Insulin takes the sugars from the blood and stores them as fat. It is very important to avoid all sugars. This includes the ever popular honey, maple sugar and agave nector. For any further questions free to call for your free information session.

Should I reface my existing kitchen or order a new one?

A.

There are many factors to look at when making this decision. How old is the existing kitchen? Does the current design suit your needs? Is this upgrade for resale purposes? Am I going to do the kitchen only or other features such as flooring or wall removal? What about the countertops? If the existing kitchen is more than 15 years old then re facing is not a wise choice as you now only have a new looking façade with possibly old drawers and plastic or wood guides, old worn moldy shelves and water damage in the sink area. Today’s new products and technology have lengthened the life of a quality kitchen to 20-25 years. Design protocol has changed so much from the past and family needs have grown to centre more around the kitchen as a focal point of a home that you may be missing out on a great opportunity to improve your current asset.

Q.

With the flu vaccine campaign in full swing, many are questioning what other simple things can be done to prevent oneself from getting sick. These low-tech home remedies are worth considering. Avoid Sugar - Sugar decreases the function of your immune system almost immediately. Get Enough Rest - Quality sleep is as important as any medication. Take Some “Super” Supplements Garlic, oregano oil, astragalus, probiotics, vitamin D and zinc are some beneficial examples. Don’t Let Stress Become Overwhelming Learn to relax and laugh more. Life can be looked at like a cup: half full or half empty. The choice is yours. Exercise - Exercising helps your immune system to be more efficient in acting upon viruses and other diseases. Wash Your Hands Washing your hands will decrease your likelihood of spreading a virus to your nose, mouth or other people.

As I’ve stressed in the past, preventative maintenance is critical to safe driving- especially in the winter. Winterizing is not something that should be overlooked.

What are the benefits of advertising my business or services in “Ask the Experts”

A.

Newspapers are used to plan purchases, either for an immediate need or a future purchase. While the economy might have changed the way Canadians shop, one thing that hasn’t chnaged is the tool that they use to make their shopping decisions. Most adults identify newspapers as the way they use to plan shopping or make purchasing decisions. Secondly, newspapers ads are WELCOMED! In other media, ads are actively avoided. Newspaper is one of the few types of media where readers indicate that they want the ads. Newspapers score higher than T.V., Radio and the Internet in terms of Canadians. Lastly, newspaper readers take action, over 10 million Canadians read a newspaper on an average weekday. But they don’t just read the paper, they are moved to action based on the advertising contained in it.

Q.

Should the cost of a home inspection play a part in hiring an inspector?

A.

People are very price cautious in today’s economy but you must remember your home is the biggest investment you will ever make in your life time. Most people will spend extra money on extended warranties for their tv, phones, computers, vcr, cd players and cameras but these items rarely break down. People will go price hunting and pay the lowest price to have their $400,000.00 home inspected. A BCIPI certified and licensed inspector has gone through many years of training at BCIT and is certified by Applied Science Technologist & Technicians of British Columbia and licensed by BPCPA. You will not get quality work at bargain bin prices. A qualified home inspector will protect your financial interest in your new home.

1-800-665-4143 • SUMMERLAND, B.C.

Passed away peacefully at Kelowna General Hospital on November 4th after suffering a massive heart attack. Most beloved husband and soulmate of Valerie who were together for over forty years. He will be greatly missed by his grandson Steven and wife Kim of Oakville, Ontario and his step daughter Lisa and her daughter Haley of Saskatoon, Sask. Sadly he was predeceased by his only child – daughter Valerie in May of 2005 and son-in-law Ken in Sept. of 2004 and four siblings Arthur, Alice, Ethel and Hilda. He was born on December 11, 1912. He started work at age 14 attending night school to become a mechanical engineer and apprenticed at Bellis and Morcom in England. After the war ended he took a job as engineer at a sugar plantation in British Guyana and then emigrated to Canada and became Manager of Industrial Engineering at Canadian Arsenals, Small Arms Division, Long Branch, Ontario where he remained for 23 years. After retirement he and Valerie lived in New Zealand for six years. Coming back to Canada they settled in Westbank, BC. He particularly enjoyed the friends and neighbours around him in Sun Village, nature in all its forms, travelling and seeing new places and a love of semi classical music. He was an interesting man with a droll sense of humour and happily he retained all his faculties until the end. There will be no formal service by request. Donations in Frank’s name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4-1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9 would be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com.

McCRACKEN - William Edward William Edward (Bill) McCracken passed away quietly on November 2, 2010 at Brandt’s Creek Mews in Kelowna B.C., survived by his loving wife Wendy, daughter Lori (Steve) Taylor, sons Liam (Melodie) and Todd (Cheryl), granddaughters Cati Taylor, Taylor McGrath and Emily McCracken, grandson Andrew Taylor, and special “family” Elsie Hastings and Ray Richardson. Sadly predeceased by daughter Lesley, parents William Howard and Ivy (Wood) McCracken, and his beloved Chocolate Lab, Maddy.Born in Toronto Ontario in 1935, Bill’s life of education and service spanned over 50 years beginning with his graduation from Toronto Teacher’s College, University of Western Ontario (BA) and University of Toronto (M.Ed.) During his career Bill served as teacher, college instructor and adult education management in Seneca and Centennial Colleges in Toronto, through to the presidencies of Manitoba’s Assiniboine Community College (ACC) and Alberta’s Grande Prairie Regional College (GPRC). He met Wendy in Washington DC in 1971 and enticed her to come north and join him as his career took him from Ontario to British Columbia. A former school board trustee, Easter Seals Telethon producer, Chamber of Commerce director, United Way director and campaign chair, Rotary Club executive, youth football and soccer coach, Canada Winter Games director, and chairman of the Council of Northern Alberta’s College and University Presidents, he was accorded the 1992 Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada from the Governor General of Canada, “in recognition of significant contribution to compatriots, community and to Canada.” Upon his retirement in 1995 the GPRC community created the Bill and Wendy McCracken Visual Arts Award in recognition of their involvement and support in the arts. In Kelowna in what he considered the most rewarding and productive part of his life, he created the ongoing Leadership Series for Supervisors running through GPRC, Okanagan College and the business community. Bill had a wonderful ability to work with people to get things done. He was greatly admired for his honesty, integrity, enthusiasm for life, talent for putting staff and friends at ease, inspirational “life quotes”, Irish jokes, and beautiful singing. Nothing made him prouder than watching his sons and daughter become fine young adults embodying his same values. Throughout his struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, to the delight of all who met him, that personality remained, as he strove to the very end “to be useful” in life. His memory will continue to inspire and he will be sorely missed.The family would like to especially thank Dr’s, Appleby and Carlyle, and the staff (everyone one of them a jewel) of Apple Grove unit of Brandt’s Creek Mews for their most compassionate care, and the BC Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support group for sharing this final journey. No service by request. If desired, donations welcomed by BC Alzheimer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen meatless meals Sometimes it’s easy to make a few substitutions to a recipe, particularly a casserole, to turn it into a meatless meal, but other times, the focus is the meat, so you have to substitute a vegetable-based protein for the meat. But, there are other times when the dish itself simply doesn’t have any meat in it, so, unless dairy is included in the list of products banned from your diet, something like a spinach pie or meatless moussaka would make a delightful meal for you, with the cheese filling in for the meat protein. Although generally I turn towards Greek cuisine in summer when there are lots of herbs and Mediterranean vegetables available fresh, today there are little packets of locally-grown fresh herbs available year-round, so it’s not as much of a consideration. I do love the simplicity of Greek cooking, with its emphasis on fresh flavours like garlic and lemon, olive oil and herbs. And, I think the season of shorter days is a good opportunity to hold dinner parties where you can feature cuisine from different parts of the world: like Greece, China, India, France, Italy and Mexico. Notice most of those are generally warmer climates? It makes you feel warm just cooking up dishes from those parts of the world! A little sand on the dining room floor and you’ve brought the sunny, summer feeling right into the house. (Don’t forget to light the fire, though.) If you’ve been enjoying this food column over the years, you may be interested in reserving a copy of my upcoming cookbook, to be published by the Okanagan Institute. Go to www.judiesteeves.com for details and to make a reservation and to get an invite to the launch.

Moussaka I usually make this with a pound of ground meat, but it’s an excellent candidate for a casserole to make without meat. If you wish to include the meat, just brown it with the onions. You may substitute stock for the red wine if you wish. A meaty B.C. VQA merlot wine would go well with this. 1 eggplant 1 large zucchini 1 large potato 1 large onion 2 garlic cloves drizzle of olive oil 5.5 oz. (156 ml) tomato paste 1/2 c. (125 ml) red wine 2 tbsp. (30 ml) parsley 2 tsp. (10 ml) oregano 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) thyme 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) cinnamon salt and pepper to taste 1/2 c. (125 ml) parmesan 1 c. (250 ml) mozzarella 2 c. (500 ml) med. white sauce 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) nutmeg Preheat oven to 350 F. Peel and slice into half-inch thick slices, one eggplant and a large zucchini or several small ones, and cut one large or two medium

potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. Grate cheese. Sprinkle a little salt over eggplant slices on paper towels to absorb the moisture. Meanwhile, chop onion and mince garlic and saute in a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan until softened. Add the tin of tomato paste, a robust red wine such as merlot, fresh, chopped herbs and spices, and let simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the liquid is concentrated, but not dry. Remove from the heat. Lightly oil a large non-stick pan and quickly brown all the vegetable slices. (This may also be done under the broiler). Lay the eggplant slices on the bottom of a 9x12-inch casserole dish; cover with the grated parmesan cheese. Lay zucchini on top, then half the grated mozzarella cheese. Place potatoes on top, then spread a medium thick white sauce, seasoned with nutmeg, white pepper and salt, all over the top. Traditionally, for extra richness, two or three egg yolks would be beaten into the sauce at the end, but I don’t. Sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes to one hour. Let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting into squares and serving. Serves 8 or so.

Spinach Pie This delectable, light and crisp cheesy pie is a classic Greek dish. The filling can also be enclosed in layers of filo pastry and rolled up in a triangular shape for individual pies. It was an excellent match with the Ganton & Larsen Prospect Winery 2009 Larch Tree Hill Riesling, with its layers of flavour, of ripe fruit but zesty citrus, mellow herbs and a hint of flowers. 1 onion 1 garlic clove drizzle of oil 1 1/2 lb. (675 g) spinach 1/2 lb. (227 g) feta cheese 1/4 c. (60 ml) Swiss cheese 3 eggs 1/2 c. (125 ml) fresh parsley 1/4 c. (60 ml) fresh mint or dill 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) nutmeg salt and pepper, to taste 1 lb. (454 g) filo pastry 1/4 c. (60 ml) butter 2 tbsp. (30 ml) olive oil Chop onion and mince garlic. Heat a drizzle of oil on medium heat in a

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

large pan. Saute onions until soft and beginning to brown lightly. Add garlic and soften it too. Thaw frozen spinach if using; chop fresh and wilt in the pan with the onions and garlic. Remove from heat and let cool while you crumble the feta, grate the Swiss cheese and beat the eggs in a small bowl. Mince fresh herbs and add the cheeses, eggs, herbs and seasonings to the onion and spinach mixture and combine well. Melt the butter and olive oil. Unrol filo pastry and cover it with a damp towel to keep it from drying out as you assemble the pie. Lightly spray a rectangular pan, 8x12 inches or so, and lay the first sheet of filo in the bottom. Brush it with melted butter and oil, then repeat with four or five more sheets. Top with half the filling. Repeat with another half a dozen sheets, brushing each lightly with butter, and spread the remainder of the filling on top. Finish with the remainder of the package of filo pastry sheets, brushing the top with the last of the melted butter. Serves at least 6 for dinner, more as an appetizer.

Growers call for more picker campsites Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The fruit grower’s association is looking for campsites for pickers and valley-wide transportation to improve the Okanagan tree fruit industry. Sukhdev Goraya of the British Columbia Fruit Growers’ Association addressed West Kelowna council on Nov. 9 on the state of the tree fruit industry. Goraya said the BCFGA currently represents 801 commercial fruit growers. He noted the industry has a future in the area, with the Okanagan providing an ideal growing environment, dry climate and good soil. He pointed out the industry draws provincial and fed-

Goraya said the BCFGA is working with technology suppliers and government to upgrade their water systems. Coun. David Knowles asked if there was still difficulties between BC Tree Fruits employees and the union/management arm of the company. He pointed to media reports detailing troubles in the company’s operation. “It seems pretty extreme.” Goraya said the matter is between the union and the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative.

is hitch-hiking. Goraya added the industry is seeking a secure supply of affordable water for agriculture. Coun. Carol Zanon pointed out most West Kelowna water system users are residential, and asked if it was possible for grey water to be used. She said West Kelowna does want to protect and help their agricultural community. Goraya said he did not think there is any problem with grey water. He pointed out most growers are putting in micro sprinklers. “The overhead sprinklers use a lot of water, and lots evaporates.” He noted micro and underground sprinklers reduce water use, as well as the timing of the systems.

labour issues and land and water. “Municipalities, through SIR, are having a very positive influence on the tree fruit industry.” He noted growers are following the SIR program, and also looking at supplementing it with other technologies. Goraya said support for SIR is appreciated. “We feel this program is in the provincial interest.” He pointed out transportation for labour is a weak area in the region. Goraya said growers need a valley-wide transportation system that goes into rural areas at harvest times. He added that sometimes the only mode of transportation available for orchard workers

Goraya added their partnership with municipalities helps the industry by way of the Sterile Insect Release (SIR) program,

“We thought it would be just a slam dunk.” While the end of the rigorous process resulted in the marina, an initial concept for a water taxi that would cross the lake did not make the final plan. Wasylyk said the economics of having a water taxi didn’t make sense, and she pointed out most of the development’s residents will have boats. Other green initiatives were examined, including a co-op boat for residents who don’t own their own boats but who may want to share one with the rest of the development. She noted the development reaching the construction stage is good news. Wasylyk pointed out the Okanagan economy is still moving forward, and people are still moving here to live.

A scaled-down design has seen construction start at West Harbour when ground was broken on the multi-family development project Friday. Troika Developments CEO Renee Wasylyk said planning for the project, located on Westbank First Nation land between Lindley Drive and Old Ferry Wharf Road, began in 2007. The West Harbour development was redesigned in 2009 and relaunched in July. Wasylyk noted the downscaling of the initial 1,500-unit concept was a strategic response to market demand. She added the response did not necessarily turn on whether or not condominiums were selling, but was more a move towards what residents want. “We tried to really listen to what our focus groups were telling us, (what) our buyers were telling us.” She noted there were still prospective buyers from the previous design of West Harbour whostayed with the development. The current concept calls for construction of 217 single family homes. The waterfront development will include a marina with slips for 230 boats. Wasylyk said the offerings will include a boat slip with every house purchased. Construction of the houses and marina is set for completion by next June. A second phase of construction will involve a gymnasium, tennis courts

and a clubhouse, as well as RV or boat storage. Wasylyk said getting all the approvals for building a marina was a strenuous process. “We didn’t think it would be because we have a clean environmental report.” She noted the report pointed out West Harbour is one of the best places on the lake to build a marina.

OSO’s deal for funding strikes the right note with council Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

Musicians may make an appearance in West Kelowna schools after the district agreed to reach an exchange arrangement to help the cash-strapped Okanagan Symphony. General manager Scott Wilson said an expected $147,000 in provincial funding did not materialize this year. The symphony runs an annual budget of $850,000.

It managed to keep its accumulated deficit to around $3,200 with a donation from one of its directors. “Obviously, that’s something that’s not sustainable,” said Wilson. The symphony is looking for $10,000 in assistance from West Kelowna. Wilson said Coldstream has already granted the symphony funds for the current season and acknowledged the orchestra is asking for a lot,

but pointed out the symphony’s financial leeway has been cut to the quick. “We have made all the cuts we feel we can make without compromising our artistic integrity.” Now in its 51st season, the Okanagan Symphony puts on concerts in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton. Wilson pointed out the orchestra spins off many economic benefits that are not really seen. He noted ticket sales alone have a

$250,000 economic impact. Wilson added symphony players do many other activities because the orchestra does not occupy a huge percentage of their time. “Most of them have elaborate teaching schedules,” he said. Performance venues in the three Okanagan cities benefit, as do local ticket-sellers who pull down 15 per cent of symphony ticket sale revenues. Wilson said the OSO likes the idea of not having to depend on provincial gaming funds anymore because that money can be taken away so quickly. He pointed out tying the orchestra closer to the communities it plays in will give it a better chance to survive. Music director Rosemary Thompson noted the orchestra wants to develop outreach and education programs, and already has strong collaborative programs in place with schools. She added the symphony is looking at work with the WFN as well, and is committed to bringing cultural excitement to the communities they serve. “We have intrinsic value as cultural leaders in this community and would appreciate any sup-

to have economic benefits for West Kelowna. “I’d really like to help you personally, but on behalf of 30,000 taxpayers, I don’t think that’s really appropriate,” said Knowles Mayor Doug Findlater noted people from West Kelowna attend concerts in Kelowna and there are many recreational activities that take place across the bridge. “We hold Westside Days here, that doesn’t get support from other municipalities,” he said. Coun. Duane Ophus noted he and his wife

have been subscribers to the symphony for many years. He pointed out West Kelowna gets a long list of applicants for funding every year and he expects the list will be longer this year due to the impact of lost provincial gaming funds. Ophus considers the symphony to be a benefit to West Kelowna but it might not be valued as such by others. He said he believes West Kelowna represents 20 to 25 per cent of the audience at symphony performances in Kelowna and added a number of the musicians live on the Westside and do business or teach here. Coun Carol Zanon said an orchestra she worked with in Quebec became involved with public schools. She pointed out that when children become involved, parents also become involved. She said that might be a good foundation for the symphony here. “Once again, there has to be a commitment from the community.” She added that the symphony was not something she heard commonly discussed on the Westside. There has to be a buyin from other interests in the community, she said.

Findlater and Ophus both recommended the symphony look for a grant-inaid for funding. But Coun. Rosalind Neis pointed out the funds come from taxpayer dollars, whether they be a grant-in-aid or money from council’s discretionary fund. She asked if the symphony would provide tickets for youths in exchange for finanical support. Neis said she would like to support the symphony with $5,000 from council’s discretionary fund, contingent on a onetime attendance at a West Kelowna middle school and the high school, and equal value for tickets. Coun Bryden Winsby said he thought the symphony’s funding request was reasonable and West Kelowna’s contribution should be in excess of $5,000. Ophus added he would like to see up to $5,000 of the funds to specifically benefit people in West Kelowna, particularly with children, who cannot afford to go to concerts. Council agreed to provide $5,000 from its contingency funds dependent on the orchestra providing a reciprocal arrangement of tickets and school visits.

Recovery house warned Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

An addiction recovery retreat will have to comply with bylaws or wrap up operations within one year after the district of West Kelowna denied them a temporary permit to continue for up to two years. Planning director Nancy Henderson noted the property at 2761 Lakeridge Road is located in a single family residential zone. She pointed out the applicants do have an existing business license. Henderson said the district discovered the addiction recovery retreat through bylaw complaints. She pointed out the business was exceeding allowable uses in the single family residential zone, in terms of a bed and breakfast and how they operate, and in terms of the home-based business standard as well. Henderson said the applicant has been advised

there are two avenues to legalize the existing business. She noted the applicant decided to proceed with a temporary use permit. She pointed out the facility is not a licensed community care and assisted living facility, but the permit requires the business to comply with zoning. Henderson added a complaint received was not from an adjacent property owner, but from someone else not residing in the area. She noted that since the public has been notified and a sign went up, the district has received a number of letters concerned about this particular facility. Henderson said staff recommended the temporary use permit be denied, due to the opposition from the neighbours. She added the property is quite well-maintained, but pointed out the neighbours are concerned about the operation taking place

in a residential neighborhood. The addiction recovery retreat currently runs under the business category of a bed and breakfast. Henderson noted the operator of a bed and breakfast must live in the residence, while in this case, the operator lives next door. Four bedrooms are permitted in a bed and breakfast, which is intended to be there for a travelling public with accommodation periods of less than 30 days. “I believe this treatment facility does accommodate people for 41-day periods, and up to three months according to their website.” Coun. Carol Zanon said it is clear the operation can’t be tolerated, because it goes to the very integrity of the district’s zoning bylaw. “There’s no way it fits into anything like it is in right now.” msimmons@kelonwacapnews.com

WALKWAY WORK…

Workers from Cantex Okanagan Construction install a new speed sign on Beach Avenue in Peachland, one of the finishing touches to the new waterfront walkway. Peachland council recently voted in favour of making all of Beach Avenue, from Buchanan Road to Highway 97, which runs along side the walkway, a 30 km/h zone. DAVE PRESTON/CONTRIBUTOR

CORD eyes new DCC formula fMike Simmons The Regional District of Central Okanagan is considering a new way of calculating development cost charges on commercial, industrial and institutional properties, in order to cover future expansions of the wastewater treatment plant. CORD communications coordinator Bruce Smith said there is no change in the way residential DCCs would be handled. Charges on residential developments will continue to come from how many living units are in the development. The big change is for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. Charges are currently determined for these buildings under a myriad of different ways. A nursing home is charged per bed, as is a summer camp. Schools are charged per student, and an office building is charged per worker. “They’ve decided that to be equitable, the easiest way is to do it on gross floor area.” Smith noted the future expansion of the wastewater treatment plant anticipates there will continue to be grants from senior levels of government for rthe infrastructure.

Funding for treatment plant expansions also comes from federal and provincial grants. The current expansion is working from funds already in place. Future subdivisions, commercial, institutional and industrial development will contribute DCCs for plant expansion as a result of that growth. “We’re always working ahead, in terms of trying to keep the plant ahead of growth needs.” Demand on the plant is expected to increase. CORD estimates the area population will increase to 81,601 people by the year 2030, a growth rate of five per cent annually. The biggest population increase is expected to take place on Westbank First Nation reserves 9 and 10, with roughly 77 per cent more people. The Peachland population is expected to grow by 48 per cent, and the district of West Kelowna population by 33 per cent. Smith said non-residential growth anticipated across the region includes 223,933 square metres of commercial floor area, and 25 hectares of industrial land. An additional 35,794 square metres of institutional floor area is also expected to be built in the Central Okanagan by 2030. Buildings considered

f

institutions by CORD include places like hospitals, rest homes, theatres, churches, summer camps, schools and swimming pools. Commercial buildings run the gamut from hotels and shopping centres to beer parlours, cabarets, restaurants and neighborhood pubs. Smith pointed out that if CORD adopts the new structure for charges, any new development after Jan. 1 of 2011 would be charged the new rates. Funds would be collected to pay for future expansion of the wastewater treatment plant in Stage 4, approximately five years from now. The general philosophy of CORD’s legislation is that government grants will pay for the upgrade costs allocated to existing users. Development cost charges are taken to cover new growth. If growth flatlines or is less than projected, funding for capital expansions still meets demand. Smith noted when development started up again, collection of DCCs would also increase. He added this prevents a panic situation if population growth and accompanying development lags behind projections. District of West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater pointed out the development cost charges

through CORD are nothing new. The fees are reviewed periodically, based on projected growth, projected infrastructure and market conditions. He noted Westbank First Nation and Peachland also use the wastewater treatment plant. “The reality is, any development coming in is going to need sewer capacity. That’s a requirement.” Findlater pointed out development charges are designed to ensure the existing taxpayer doesn’t pay for growth. Retrofitting and the replacement of technology at the plant is a different story. “The existing taxpayer is using it, and wearing it out through their use.” He added retrofits that could result in increased capacity at the wastewater treatment plant can be done at the same time as future expansions. “That’s what I’m told by the experts.” Findlater said it’s hard to say if industrial growth will pick up in West Kelowna. He added it seemed unlikely there would be a large amount of commercial development in the area either. “Unless we kick-start the Westbank town centre, there may be some out of that.”

“Some of the people were laid off, that’s why they were getting a little bit upset. I think it’s been resolved.” The association is also examining the potential for campsites for workers. Goraya said when cherry picking harvest starts in Osoyoos there are campsites available. He noted sometimes rowdy people come in to the sites and make a mess. He noted if there were sites that could be administered by the BCFGA and municipal councils, they could be run properly and taken care of. The campsites are situated outside the orchard in Osoyoos, but Goraya said there are no sites here. This leads to fruit workers camping in the orchards themselves, or finding other locations. Goraya noted that growers have to have accommodations inspected before housing workers there. Guidelines are especially strict when hiring foreign workers. He said he has not seen any prob-

lems with sub-standard housing conditions in the Okanagan so far, but be-

lieves there have been problems in the Lower Mainland.

’m sure it happens all the time. You’ve got your cruise control on, you are driving the speed limit in the slow lane and traffic in the fast lane is cruising past you. You notice yourself closing in on a big truck that’s not keeping up to highway speed, so you signal to pass. Of course, traffic in the fast lane doesn’t pay any attention to your signal. You see a break in traffic and change lanes. You’ve not had to change your speed, and so you are continuing to do the speed limit. The driver of the pickup truck you pulled in front of gets upset. God forbid that someone driving the speed limit would pull ahead of him or her in the fast lane. The pick-up driver carries on at his 15 kilometres per hour above the speed limit until his bumper just about touches yours. The driver rides your bumper until you’ve both passed the big truck and then makes a dramatic show of swerving around you and cutting you off, flipping you the bird in the process. I’m sure most of you have had a similar experience. In the unlikely event that such a moron might

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott be articulate enough to be reading this newspaper, and particularly enlightened enough to be reading this column, I’ve got news for you. Not only is your conduct rude, it’s criminal. Have a look at section 249(1)(a) of the Criminal Code which prohibits driving in a manner dangerous to the public. The offence carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. If your dangerous driving causes a crash and someone is injured, the maximum penalty increases to 10 years in jail. Kill someone and it’s up to 14 years. Even though the maximum penalties are relatively meaningless, I’d like to see those morons hauled through the criminal justice system. As I’ve said before, nothing changes without consequences. Of course, the RCMP have more serious traffic matters to contend with. Or do they? If we don’t put a check on dangerous driv-

ing it will get worse. I heard from one Westsider a few days ago who went through an simialr experience. He was driving a Smart car. His little car could have been swallowed whole by the heavy duty pick-up truck he pulled ahead of to pass a transport truck. True to form, the pickup rode the Smart car’s bumper until making it past the big truck. The disturbing variation was that the pick-up’s driver took dangerous driving to a new level. Instead of swerving around and cutting off the Smart car, the male driver pulled alongside and then edged into the Smart car’s lane. He continued edging over, forcing the Smart car to the shoulder, until side-ramming the Smart car. This occurred on Highway 97, heading past Glenrosa towards Peachland. After side-ramming the Smart car, the driver took the exit to Vancouver. Shocking? Wait until you hear about the consequences to the pick-up’s driver. The investigating RCMP officer is apparently going to issue a ticket for leaving the scene of an accident.

A ticket? Isn’t ramming another vehicle along the lines of slugging someone in a back alley, only more serious because it could have led to a serious crash? I am interested in talking to the officer to find out why he isn’t proceeding with the criminal offence of dangerous driving. Then there’s ICBC. Even though the drive was tracked down and admitted to being at the scene, he denied causing the damage to the side of the Smart car and so isn’t being held accountable. The Smart car driver has to pay a $750.00 deductible! Why aren’t the authorities taking road rage seriously? Do we need to send a message to our political leaders in order to get priorities sorted out? Do lawyers like me need to take on $750 cases in order to rake such bad drivers over the coals? 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.

Irrigation districts absorbed by DWK After nearly 150 years of combined service to Westside residents, the Westbank and Lakeview Irrigation Districts will close their doors on Dec. 31 and their operations and assets will be transferred to the District of West Kelowna. As required by the Letters Patent issued by the province at the time of incorporation, the handover will put the operation of the utillities in the hands of the municipality. According to Mayor Doug Findlater, it is appropriate for West Kelowna to give the utilities a proper goodbye and show appreciation before they become a part of municipal operations on Jan. 1. The municipality will hold an open house Nov. 16, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Westbank Lions Hall, with a special presentation at 7 p.m. Findlater said the event will serve as the perfect opportunity to honour the irrigation districts’

histories, recognize their many accomplishments and welcome them into the West Kelowna family. “For many, a lot of emotion surrounds the dissolution of the irrigation districts, which was a provincial decision that arose from the community’s decision to incorporate in 2007,” he said. “One can’t simply close the doors on these organizations without recognizing all the services the irrigation districts have provided and the investment that employees, boards of trustees and customers have poured into these utilities for so many decades.” The Westbank Irrigation District has been a part of the community since 1922 and the Lakeview Irrigation District since 1951. In addition to providing water to homes, businesses and farms, Westbank Irrigation District operated a cemetery and Lakeview Irrigation District man-

aged recreational properties, including Anders and Issler Parks and the Lakeview Heights Women’s Institute Hall, which later became the Lakeview Heights Community Hall. Both utilities also built significant infrastructure over the years, including major works within the past decade. The Westbank utility completed the Powers Creek water treatment plant in 2007 and added an ultraviolet disinfection system in 2009 at a combined cost of $18 million. In 2005, the Lakeview utility raised the level of the Bighorn Reservoir for $1.5 million. “These projects and services only begin to tell the story about these two organizations, which is why it is appropriate to hold an event in recognition of all their accomplishments,” said the mayor. “It’s also a time to recognize the continuing evolution of local government from irrigation dis-

trict, to regional district to municipality. I encourage all West Kelowna residents to come to the Nov. 16 open house and thank past and present employees and trustees for their contributions to the community over the years.” West Kelowna has been holding joint planning sessions with both irrigation districts for more than a year to map out the transition and ensure it was as seamless as possible for customers. In June, council directed staff to establish three separate water utility funds—one for West Kelowna water operations and one for each of the irrigation districts—to be in place for a three-year period. Given that both the Westbank and Lakeview utilities operated for so long as separate entities, with their own revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities, the three-year period will allow for time to review and monitor the funds.

Westside fans get taste of international hockey Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It was a rare chance for Westside hockey fans to watch international hockey in their own building. So when Team Russia and Team Canada East played an exhibition game against each other in Royal LePage Place last weekend you might have expected a big crowd to take in the proceedings. But only about onethird of the seats were full when Canada East took on Russia, one day before the World Junior A challenge began play in Penticton. And it wasn’t much better in Vernon, site of the other World Junior A exhibition where about 700 fans attended. Still it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Hockey Canada in its two exhibition sites, prior to Penticton hosting the World Junior A tournament. “Things went fantastic (in West Kelowna),” said Kevin Webster, Hockey Canada’s manager of marketing and events. “The Warriors were a good partner for us. Our hope with that game and the one in Vernon was to create a little exposure for the event up and down the Okanagan corridor.”

Webster admitted attendance in both West Kelowna and Vernon was below what organizers had hoped for. “It’s hard to say why,” said Webster. “You can come up with lots of excuses. Maybe it was because their home team wasn’t on the ice.” Still Webster says the exhibition games did create a buzz in terms of ticket sales in Penticton. And it also gave Hockey Canada a chance to see games in a few different buildings around the Okanagan with a view to future events. “Without a doubt we have some events that would be great in this part of the country,” said Webster. “We have the Under-17 tournament every year which is a precursor to the World Junior. That’s a 29 game event. Kelowna, West Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon...all those groups could be a partner in that.” Webster said Hockey Canada had discussions with the Warriors about being a co-host in this year’s World Junior A tournament. That could have seen some round robin games held in Royal LePage Place but in the end Pen-

ABOUT 600 FANS took in a World Junior A Challenge exhibition game last weekend at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna. ticton was awarded the tournament on its own. Webster says the size of Royal LePage Place isn’t an issue. “It works,” he said. “With fewer seats you can

charge a little bit more so that makes the revenue goals of the event achievable.” There is currently no site chosen for the 2011 World Junior A Challenge

but it’s clear Hockey Canada likes B.C. This year there are seven BCHL players on Team Canada West and the number of arenas in the Okanagan gives the area a fighting

chance of hosting more international competition. “It could be back in B.C. if the right group comes forward,” he said. The final game of this year’s World Junior A

challenge will take place on Sunday (Nov. 14). You can find more information on the web at www.hockeycanada.ca/ wjac. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Penticton’s economy scores with arrive of hockey challenge Mark Brett CONTRIBUTOR

Hockey mania is alive and well in Penticton. Concerns about Penticton fans being “hockeyed out” after the Vancouver Canucks Young Stars event last month have been laid to rest, especially if initial attendance figures of those going through the turnstiles for the opening games of the 2010 World Junior A

Challenge tournament are any indication. “Yes there was some concern about having two events in the same year and the amount of hockey we were having in Penticton, but I look at last night and I was quite pleased by the amount of people we had at both games,” said Penticton’s economic development officer David Arsenault earlier this week. The event got under-

way Monday at the South Okanagan Events Centre with Team Canada West and Team East facing off against European opponents in back-to-back matches. Not surprisingly the largest crowd was for the evening match with Team Canada West—featuring three members of the Penticton Vees and another Penticton hockey product — hooking up for a battle with the Swiss.

Although the outcome of the match was not as hoped with Switzerland coming out on the long end a 5-4 score, the excitement of the overtime game only fueled the anticipation for the upcoming matches. Just how much fans were into the late game was evident by the painted faces, flag-draped, caped crusaders and the pair of “red” men circulating throughout the hallways

and stands. And along with the pucks it is also the bucks stopping here according to Arsenault. “If you look at the (Canucks) Young Stars tournament, that tournament generated about $2 million in economic activity for the City of Penticton and we expect the same thing to happen with the World Junior A Challenge,” he said. “Coupled with that we’ve got some

great exposure with the events centre and great exposure for the City of Penticton and you can’t put a price on that.” There is also the added benefit of having events like this one, which is anticipated to drop upwards of $ 2 million into the city’s retail coffers, come at a normally quieter economic time. “That’s a really great thing — that it extends our shoulder season,” said

Arsenault. “Most of the events we have in Penticton are during the summer. This creates jobs in those times when things are a little bit leaner, and November is one of those months. “This is good for the community, good for the economy, good for the hotels, restaurants and stores, and that’s a positive side,” he said. “Coupled with that is this event will be televised on TSN Sunday, with the gold medal game. It puts us on the map.” By getting national television exposure and international media coverage, these kinds of events also help paint a different picture of the city overall. Often portrayed as strictly a holiday destination and retirement community, the economic development officer is certain a younger crowd may be enticed to check out the region. The tournament continues the rest of this week with the finals scheduled for Sunday. Penticton Western News

Remembering fallen in Hong Kong

I

Stockwell Day On that day when their families back in Canada were opening presents, enjoying turkey and whispering quiet prayers for their absent loved ones, the officers of those troops were facing a terrible dilemma. The number of casualties in the field, killed and wounded, was now in the hundreds and climbing by the hour. To continue fighting would mean obliteration of the regiment and possibly the annihilation of the hospital at St. Stephen’s. The officers made the heartbreaking but appropriate decision. They would order their men to lay down their arms and surrender. And they would ask for the attack on the hospital to cease.

They laid down their arms. And then to their horror a furious and undefended assault on the hospital was unleashed. There is no point in describing the details of what then took place. Those who survived actually would prefer that I didn’t. This Remembrance Day, instead of laying a wreath at one of the many ceremonies throughout our beautiful constituency, I will be in Hong Kong. I will be promoting our Asia Pacific Gateway Ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert and conducting trade related meetings at other Asian venues. The personal highlight for me will be the honour of representing Canada at a special Remembrance ceremony at St. Stephen’s School in Hong Kong. Now once again a place of education, the school, its staff and students want to do a memorial ceremony of thanks to those brave Canadians. I will be presenting to their archives a memorial DVD set, narrated by one of our soldiers who was

there on that awful Christmas Day in 1941. I will be taking some pictures and emailing them to my mother. Her father, my grandfather whom I never met, was one of those brave, tough Canadian soldiers who fought in the Battle of Hong Kong and at St. Stephen’s. Captured, he would spend the next four years in prisoner of war camps. There’s no point in describing what took place there either. Those who survived would prefer that I didn’t. Instead, I will say a quiet prayer of thanks, for the grandfather I never knew and for our veterans from all campaigns. There is an ancient Hebrew scripture that urges us to tell “our children and our children’s children” of the great sacrifices and the heroic deeds of our elders, so that we could know freedom. I will be telling mine. I hope you will tell yours. Lest they forget. Stockwell Day is the Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla and the president of the federal Treasury Board.

Province plans to review its new drinking driving regulations Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

People are over-reacting to the new penalties imposed on drivers who blow in the “warn” range of a roadside blood alcohol test, Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman says. New penalties were imposed Sept. 20, giving police options beyond the 24-hour roadside suspension. A blood alcohol reading in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent can result in a threeday driving ban, a $200 “administrative penalty” and another $250 fee to have a driver’s licence reinstated. Drivers may also have their car impounded for three days and be billed k

Rich Coleman for towing and storage, without ever exceeding the legal limit. For those who exceed 0.08, steeper on-the-spot fines and 30-day vehicle seizures are now within the discretion of police, in addition to charges if they proceed with prosecution. Coleman said Monday that since the new penalties took effect, it’s become an “urban myth”

that people can’t have even one drink if they’re going to drive home. That’s having an impact on restaurant and pub business that was not intended when the measure was imposed, he said. More than 1,400 drivers were nailed with tougher penalties in the first 20 days of the crackdown under the new rules. Before that, officers had issued 24-hour roadside suspensions to as many as 40,000 drivers a year, but those did not include financial penalties or vehicles towed to an impound lot. Coleman said the public needs more education on the roadside penalties for those under 0.08, and when it comes to seizing vehicles, police may as well.

▼ MP’S REPORT

t was Christmas Day, 1941. Seventeen days earlier, Hong Kong had been hit with a massive military assault of Japanese troops. A small contingent of Canadian soldiers was defending the Chinese people. They were from the Winnipeg Grenadiers and the Royal Rifles, many from Quebec. They were hopelessly outnumbered and woefully under-equipped. By anybody’s estimate they should not have been able to fight back for more than a couple of days. However, as Canadian troops are known to do, they stood fast when others would have faltered. They made their final stand at a place called St. Stephen’s School. The school had been converted to a field hospital for the wounded from various fields of battle across Asia. Its rooms and corridors, attended by courageous nurses, were filled to overflowing with badly injured soldiers, most of them incapable of defending themselves, let alone others.

“If the vehicle can be parked legally somewhere safe, or if there’s another person who can drive, it doesn’t have to be towed under the legislation,” he said. Coleman has asked ICBC to help educate the public in their annual Counterattack advertising program that is run each Christmas season. He said demonstrations where reporters go to pubs with police, have a drink or two, then get tested with a roadside screening device would also be useful. The new penalties were placed in legislation by the Liberal government last spring, and if they are to be changed, amendments would have to be debated in the B.C. legislature in the new year.

Drilling in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is not worth the risk

W

e saw what happened when the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 workers and spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico for three months. Imagine a similar incident in an inland sea onesixth the size of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a very real fear for people in the five provinces along the Gulf of St. Lawrence – Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia – as well as the French territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon. The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board recently approved a permit allowing Nova Scotia–based Corridor Resources Inc. to explore for oil and gas at a loca-

SCIENCE MATTERS

David Suzuki tion called the Old Harry prospect in the Gulf, halfway between the Magdalen Islands and Cape Anguille in western Newfoundland near the Quebec border. The company began seismic testing this fall and could start drilling as early as next year. The Gulf of St. Lawrence represents about two-thirds of Canada’s overall national maritimerelated gross domestic product. It provides a unique and fragile environment for more than 2,200 species of invertebrates and

19 species of marine mammals, and it is culturally, biologically, and socially important for the people of Quebec and Atlantic Canada. Scientific studies, as well as reports by the governments of Quebec and Canada, have concluded that even during the oil and gas exploration phase, sound waves from seismic surveys can disturb and damage marine wildlife, including endangered species such as blue whales and cod. But drilling causes the most concern. Computer simulations by the David Suzuki Foundation’s Quebec office show that a spill of 10,000 barrels of oil a day over 10 days in different seasons could have a devastating impact on all five provinces along the Gulf of St. Lawrence, affecting tourism, fisheries, and mar-

ine life. In the Magdalen Islands, which are near Old Harry, fishing directly and indirectly affects 75 per cent of the local population and generates annual revenues of about $78 million. A spill in this area would have a catastrophic effect on the people of the Magdalen Islands. Because a spill would affect all the Gulf of St. Lawrence provinces and territories, one jurisdiction should not be allowed to exploit the resources without approval from all the other jurisdictions that would be affected by an accident. Researchers estimate that only about 15 per cent of any oil spill can be cleaned up, and the damage can last for years. More than 20 years after the Exxon Valdez spill off the Alaska coast, its effects are still being felt. The Quebec govern-

ment recently released the results of a strategic environmental assessment that concluded the negative impacts of oil and gas exploitation in the estuary of the St. Lawrence would far outweigh the benefits.

‘‘

RESEARCHERS ESTIMATE THAT ONLY ABOUT 15 PER CENT OF ANY OIL SPILL CAN BE CLEANED UP, AND THE DAMAGE CAN LAST FOR YEARS.

That led to a ban on exploration in the estuary but not in the Gulf itself. Quebec already had a moratorium on exploration in its Gulf waters, but

that could be lifted by late 2012 if the second part of the strategic environmental assessment concludes that the benefits of exploration outweigh the risks. Given the importance of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the provinces that border it, and indeed to all of Canada, we just can’t afford to risk a spill like the one that devastated the Gulf of Mexico. The David Suzuki Foundation has joined other organizations in calling on the federal and provincial governments to develop an integrated management plan for the Gulf and to impose an immediate moratorium on oil and gas exploration and drilling for the entire Gulf. You can help by sending a letter to federal and provincial government representatives supporting this call.

Our dependence on fossil fuels is not sustainable. In burning these fuels for energy, we cause pollution and greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change, which threatens the health of humans and all life on Earth. And exploration and drilling threatens the health of our waterways and all the life that depends on them. The sooner we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, through energy conservation and by developing cleaner, renewable sources of energy, the better off we’ll all be. It will certainly be better — for the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the people who live there. with Faisal Moola David Suzuki is a scientist and broadcaster based in Vancouver. www.davidsuzuki.org.

OKANAGAN ▼ PENTICTON

Delay of last space shuttle flight has impact on Okanagan Mark Brett CONTRIBUTOR

Bathed in the warm amber glow of the launchtower floodlights, the space shuttle Discovery slowly emerges from behind the retracting service structure. A passing lightning storm earlier in the evening postponed the final curtain call on the venerable space ship’s emergence but she now stands unobstructed on the eve of her scheduled 39th and final mission. Fully exposed, the gleaming white outer coat — only marked by her name and United States flag on the lower right wing and the NASA logo on the other — her appearance belies the nearly 30 years of service she has provided to the world’s space community. True-to-dramatic form the evening is not complete until one-by-one the banks of the high-powered xenon lights come to life criss-crossing the craft and deflecting into the Florida night sky.

But Thursday dawns dark and stormy and the launch committee at an early-morning meeting quickly decides to abort Mission STS 133 to the International Space Station for another 24 hours. In a complete turnaround, Friday is bright and clear and the atmosphere at NASA’s on-site news nerve centre is positive with word of a 70 per cent chance of launch at 3:04 p.m. The only potential problem at this stage are the high winds which are expected to dissipate as the day progresses — good news. Then shortly after 8 a.m. the official NASA TV commentator announces the detection of a hydrogen leak in the main fuel tank during fueling with word to follow. Very bad news. Shortly afterwards with a live video feed of the shuttle on the overhead HD screens, the announcer confirmed what many had already anticipated. “The launch has been officially scrubbed for at

least 72 hours.” The previous silence in the room is broken by a collective groan of disbelief from staff and journalists, this is the fourth aborted mission in five days. “We’re done, we have to leave Sunday,” said one British media rep, who along with his Dutch colleague have flights to catch before the earliest rescheduled lift-off. “I can’t believe it. We’ve got nothing and now we’re leaving.” But for the more experienced covering previous launches this is just part of the process. “What can you do? These are just things that happen and there’s nothing we can do,” said Roland Miller, the dean of arts at College of Lake Country in Chicago. Meanwhile, most of the members of the Penticton group who travelled across the continent to see the launch have also had to return home. Penticton’s Patricia Tribe, whose boyfriend Alvin Drew is among the

six Discovery crew members, got back to Penticton last weekend. The day of the last aborted mission was Drew’s 48th birthday. Despite the delay, which has now been extended until Nov. 30, Tribe noted the astronauts all seemed to be in good spirits. “I talked to Alvin last night for quite a while and he’s actually doing really good,” she said earlier this week. “He’s happy they made the call and it gave him a lot of confidence in the people, making the right calls. “But I do think they’re (crew) a little tired because you’re up, you’re down, you’re up, you’re down, you’re prepped to go and you’re down again.” But she said in spite of all the pressure to launch, the proper decision was made. “I’m glad they came to their senses and stepped back and made the right choice because between those two things that could easily have been catastrophic.

Kudos for new OK college centre Even months ahead of completion, the new Centre of Excellence at Okanagan College’s Penticton campus is already garnering worldwide attention and acclamation, like a first of its kind award the college was given at a ceremony in Vancouver Saturday. The 9,000-member Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC named Okanagan College as the first organizational winner of its new TechGREEN Award, based largely on the Centre of Excellence project. College president Jim Hamilton, along with regional dean Donna Lomas, was on hand to accept the award from John Yap, minister of state for climate action. “To be named inaugural winner of the award is flattering, but more importantly, it signals to our staff, students and partners that we’re on the right track,” said Hamilton. “It communicates that the investment made in a greener approach to planning and practice is being noticed.” Penticton nominator Bill Billups, currently

working for the Canadian Wood Council as a technical advisor, was part of the design team, providing technical assistance for using wood in the design of non-residential building projects. Billups cited Lomas and the Penticton OK Rotary Club as key drivers of the project, saying that the purpose of the $28 million Centre of Excellence building is to train technologists, technicians and tradespersons in the design and construction of fully sustainable buildings. “This building boasts built-in monitoring to make it a living laboratory, ensuring that any system failure is immediately corrected and that future technological improvements can be incorporated,” Billups said. “There will be zero water loss and we see a future without air conditioners, with air quality systems powered by photovoltaics.” John Leech, executive director of ASTTBC, said the organization and its members are committed to incorporating and promoting sustainable practices in the workplace and

the home, an ideal that is also embraced in every aspect of the Centre of Excellence concept. “The Okanagan College Penticton Centre of Excellence project was unsurpassed in this year’s nominations of organizations,” said Leech. “TechGREEN Awards recognize and celebrate the best of the best. Nominees must demonstrate leadership and significant involvement in sustain-

able best practices, energy conservation and environmental benefit.” Lomas said the fact a group representing engineers and technologists recognize what the college is doing and are rewarding it is another signal they are leading the way in green building technologies. “They are acknowledging the fact that we are really trying to put some innovation into the building.”

As well as the hydrogen leak, technicians also found a 20-inch crack on a piece of foam on the external tank. Following Friday’s decision, the crew members returned immediately to NASA’s Houston centre to continue training for their mission. For mission specialist Drew that will mean some pool time to practise for his two planned space walks to do some work on the outside of the Inter-

national Space Station. Although it’s always been his dream to have the opportunity to do a space walk, he admits it will be a little intimidating, especially at first. “I’ve talked a lot to astronauts who have gone up and done this before and the first few seconds when you open the hatch —the hatch itself points straight down at the Earth —and so getting out there, even though you’re weightless, you’re trying

to convince a part of your body that you’re not going to go plummeting to Earth when you go out,” he said. “It’s a very long ways down.” Meanwhile, Tribe is already scheduling her next flight to Houston and then Florida for the scheduled night launch. “And then we’ll see what happens. It’s just one of those things you have no control over, so we’ll just cross our fingers.” Penticton Western News
