T

he sound of helicopter blades joins forces with the hum of an air conditioner to feed my substantial headache that has amplified over the past month. I stare out my living room window into the night sky over Al Adliyah Avenue. The warm breeze on my face is something I’ve gotten used to over the past six months. The smell of sheesha from Isis Cafe next door is much weaker than usual and I notice this as I stare at palm fronds moving slowly in the light wind. It’s my second to last night in the Middle East, but I’m not aware of that at this point. See story A3.

CLOSE-UP

Apathy toward international affairs evident in Okanagan from A3 The street is empty, which is, typically, uncharacteristic. But the last 30-some days have been anything but typical. It all progressed very fast; it was unnerving. A Skype conversation on Feb. 13. “Hi Mom and Dad, just so you don’t get too worried, there are supposed to be a few protests here over the next few days. I’m sure it will all blow over pretty fast.” A Valentine’s Day dinner that made my girlfriend nervous and which I shrugged off, naively, as nothing to worry about. The same night, a gathering of thousands, recently inspired by the successful protests of Tunisians and Egyptians, met with waves of tear gas and rubber bullets from security forces. A persistence not quelled by the security forces, leading to a rally around the symbolic Pearl Roundabout: Bahrain’s own Tahrir Square. Then the events seemed to progress faster and seemed more surreal. An early morning ambush on camped out protesters, killing several, injuring many. A sea of Saudi military tanks, taking back the Pearl Roundabout. An overtaking of Salmaniya Hospital. An order given that doctors not treat protesters suffering from injuries. A rumour that over 50

bodies were taken across the bridge to Saudi Arabia in three refrigeration trucks. An email warning in my inbox to not go to work and stay indoors. A steady stream of propaganda from Bahrain TV. A label of sectarianism. A switch from rubber bullets to live ammuni-

I retreated to The British Club, a recreational paradise for expats living on the Persian Gulf island. “I don’t see why everyone is making such a big deal out of all this,” is what I translate from a man with a thick accent. I’m sipping a pint of Heineken and nodding

I TAUGHT IN VANCOUVER AND I WOULD LECTURE ABOUT ABORIGINAL ISSUES, QUEBEC AND REGIONALISM. STUDENTS WOULD BE (UNINTERESTED).

tion. A higher death toll. Then, after a couple of weeks, as quickly as the madness occurred, the madness seemed to go away. Saudi tanks retreated, protesters reclaimed the Pearl Roundabout and meaningful dialogue was promised. I took advantage of the opportunity to slow my heartbeat during the false sense of calmness, which was really the eye of a storm.

politely at the intoxicated bloke from northern England, who I completely disagree with. “This really isn’t a big deal,” he says. I return to work— teaching English—and struggle to use textbook material when it’s clear everyone’s mind is somewhere else. Many of my students have been at the protests on a nightly basis. Some have seen their friends hurt by security forces. I

can’t help but think this is a big deal. Then, about a week later, the wave picks up again. A warning of planned protests. A severe response to those protests. A few nights spent in a classroom, waiting for students who would never show up. A message from the American embassy saying that expats without a pressing need to stay in Bahrain, should leave. A longer list of casualties. Another ambush on the Pearl Roundabout. A cutting off of Internet. A handful of nervous Skype conversations with my worried family after the Internet is restored: They beg me to leave. A decision to stick it out, until the Canadian Embassy suggests otherwise. A rollercoaster of emotions, followed by guilt after a realization that I am far from the victim. An early morning wake-up by my girlfriend telling me the embassy called and asked her if she wanted an emergency flight out of the country. And then, on March 17, the message from the Canadian Embassy I had been hoping I would never receive, urging Canadians to depart the Persian Gulf island. In two hours I packed my life into a 20 kg suitcase and, later that day, I was on board an Etihad Airways flight to Man-

I returned to Canada in May. *** Bahrain is a speck on the globe. It is a small part of the Middle East, which is a small part of the international community. But it’s a speck that got magnified significant-

ly by international media from February to April. Perhaps that’s why, selfishly, I assumed I would have one hell of a story to tell when I got back to the Okanagan. Instead, I experienced an unusual dose of culture shock and noticed traces

of apathy when I returned. A conversation with an old friend quickly confirmed this. “What have you been up to?”

Paying more attention to international affairs Apathy from A3 “I just got back from Bahrain.” “Where?” More and more similar conversations took place. But it wasn’t just Bahrain that drew blank stares. Talk of Libyan rebel advancements, European debt, the Somalia famine, tension between north and south Sudan and, even, Wikileaks caused confusion. And it wasn’t just the 20-somethings who appeared uncultured; some individuals twice—even three or four times— my age lacked much understanding on happenings outside of beautiful British Columbia. I understand that, due to my personal experiences, I had a vested interest in global news. But my observations led me to look a bit deeper into the issue (and, for that matter, whether or not I should even call it an issue). “We are very insular,” admits Joyce Brinkerhoff, co-president of the Intercultural Society of the Central Okanagan. She says that she has run into a few complaints that the Kelowna area focuses too closely on itself. “There was one fellow who went back to Saudi Arabia on (Sept. 25). He was saying, ‘I’ve got to go back because I don’t hear anything (about) what’s going on.’ He was frustrated here.” Brinkerhoff says that residents of the Okanagan are often bombarded with so much local information that it’s hard to focus on what’s occurring outside their borders. She uses a recent Kelowna cold-case trial, which received nearly a month of nonstop media coverage, as an example.

“The whole Snelson murder case: Get over it already. There are thousands of people dying in Somalia right now.” According to Brinkerhoff, both individuals and the local media should be responsible for ensuring that international information is being understood by residents in our area. “That’s a responsibility of the local media: To bring international affairs right here; to find the local flavour to a national or international event.” Similar sentiments are shared by Latif Kachuri, an employment counsellor with Kelowna Community Resources. Kachuri takes a long breath through the phone line as he shifts into first-person to recall his own story. “I didn’t want to leave my country. I came from Kosovo in 1999. I had to leave because our houses were burnt and we were not safe to live there,” says Latif. “I went to a refugee camp for 17 days in Macedonia. The Canadian government took about 8,000 people from Kosovo. I lived, for about six weeks, in a Fredericton air base called Gagetown. From Fredericton we moved to Kelowna.” Local media jumped on the story upon Latif’s arrival. He recalls that various newspapers offered front page real estate to tell his family’s story. A decade has passed since then and Latif isn’t confident that his story would receive the same play in 2011. He says that there are others with stories similar to his who haven’t received an outlet to share their experiences. “For a long time I haven’t seen interSee Apathy A6

Hard to ‘think outside the valley’ Apathy from A16

national news about newcomers in Kelowna.� I walk downtown on a Friday morning for my next interview at Starbucks on Bernard. As I stroll past the Astral Media headquarters, speakers blare Phil Johnson’s voice contemplating the state of the Okanagan wine industry. I meet up with Peter Urmetzer, program head of international relations at UBCO. He tells me that he’s noticed an interesting trend in the Okanagan. “I taught in Vancouver and I would lecture about Aboriginal issues, Quebec and regionalism. Students would be (uninter-

ested). As soon as I started talking about international issues, you could hear a pin drop. Students were so interested in that,� says Peter. “Then, when I came here, they just weren’t interested in that stuff. I used to say, ‘Think outside the valley.’ I found people really unaware of that kind of thing.� Mohini Singh is a former CHBC reporter, community activist and a Kelowna city council candidate in the upcoming municipal election. She received the Order of B.C. in 2008. She says that keeping an eye on international news is important. “People should know

what’s happening in the world around us. What happens somewhere else can, and does, resonate where we live. We’re a global family now,� says Singh. She goes on to say that, although important, it isn’t always easy to do that. “All of us are running 600 miles per hour, trying to keep food on the table; it’s hard to spend time finding out what’s happening everywhere.� Hard, yes. But also, important. *** Bahrain has resurfaced on the international news cycle over the past month and a half. Reports tell the stor-

ies of more deaths, sentences and persecution for activists. Some live with a sense fear; all experience feelings of uncertainty. And that’s just the speck that is home to less than 1.5 million people. Billions are living in a different situation, a different story. As I sit at my desk in the Capital News office, I hear the sound of helicopter blades. For most, the noise might indicate the prevention of a local fire, the search for a local criminal or a boost to the local economy. But my mind wanders elsewhere. wpaterson@kelownacapnews. com

NEWS ▼ LACROSSE GAME INCIDENT

Police push for assault charge Tim Petruk CONTRIBUTOR

Kamloops RCMP have recommended a Kelowna teenager be charged with assault following an alleged head-stomping incident during a minor lacrosse game earlier this year. On June 26, the Kamloops Rattlers were taking on the Kelowna Kodiaks in a midget B lacrosse game at Memorial Arena in Kamloops. It’s alleged that late in the game, a 15-year-old Kelowna player dealt a cross-check to the neck of a 15year-old Kamloops player. “The Kamloops player fell to

the floor and the Kelowna player allegedly stood over the Kamloops player for several seconds then stomped on his head,” said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. The Kelowna player was ejected from the game and suspended from the league, while the Kamloops player was treated for what was initially believed to be a possible broken neck. Doctors later concluded the Kamloops player, identified as Blake Rose, did not suffer any broken bones. Criminal charges stemming from altercations during youth sporting events are rare, but not un-

heard of. In 2008, a 17-year-old Merritt secondary school rugby player was charged with assault after throwing a punch at an opposing player during a game in Kamloops against SaHali secondary. The Merritt teen was eventually found not guilty after the judge ruled the punch was not beyond a set of “unwritten rules” governing rugby play. In such cases, Learned said investigators look at whether the incident was “outside the norm for what is expected in that sport.” The charge recommendation against the Kelowna teen is now in the hands of Crown counsel.

PUBLIC MEETING

Snelson’s lawyers appeared in court Thursday morning to push back the sentencing date to Dec. 1, from its originally planned Nov. 14. The date-switch is related to a scheduling conflict. Snelson, 45, was convicted of manslaughter last week, for the 1993 killing of Jennifer Cusworth. Cusworth was found facedown in a Swamp Road ditch Oct. 17, 1993. She had been strangled, but ultimately died from numerous blows to the back of the head from an object pathologists surmised was a tire iron.

Monday marks the 18th anniversary of her death, which is something her parents Jean and Terry Cusworth have celebrated by dropping off carnations. That celebration took place a bit early this year, to coincide with Snelson’s conviction. Despite the fact the mystery of who killed their daughter was what brought them to the spot for a yearly appeal for information, Jean said they will continue to go back to Swamp Road on the anniversary of her death. Another celebration of the young woman’s life will be held in the spring.

Motives of lobby group questioned To the editor: After reading Jennifer Smith’s (Wordsmith) column, (Make up your own mind, Oct. 7 edition of Capital News), I made up my mind to add my two bits worth into the political arena, following the headshots by the fourchange.org to ban Charlie Hodge, Angela ReidNagy, Kevin Craig and Mi-j chele Rule from the political scene. I have been following the fourchange.org drama unfold like a reality show/soap opera, wondering what the gang of 10 were going to hoist upon us next. When their intention to oust the four councillors backfired, it forced them to change their tune. They had under-estimated and insulted some citizens of Kelowna, as expressed by Sandra Wilmot’s letter to the editor (The few who care enough to be informed, Sept. 27, Capital News). Instead of calling themselves a grassroots movement, perhaps an artificial turf covering cement parking lots movement reflects their motives. I can’t help thinking the

Not to be a boob myself, but has anyone seen or spoken with a teenager lately? If Mr. Gloster and his cohorts are concerned about the boobie-word being a distraction to our future leaders, he must be going crazy about the real thing. Revealing wardrobes have ensured that breasts are all but omnipresent in this city, and the hallowed halls of our school system offer no exception. And one would be remiss to not point out the simple fact that the word “boobies” is far less offensive than what I hear spewing from the mouths of babes at the mall, on the street, or even in their schools when I’ve had occasion to go. So what is it about this campaign that’s causing such a stir? There are one of two options as far as I can see. A) Student behaviour has fallen so far below the bar that teachers and ad-

ministrators have no choice but to bring us back to 1950, for fear that we’re all catapulting toward hell in a failure-free handbasket. Or B) These bracelets have done something to spark that delightfully strange streak of puritanism that still runs through Kelowna. Let’s just hope that boobie-bracelet banning doesn’t lead to a Footloose style ban on dancing, or a revisitation of prohibition. Frankly, I’m crossing my fingers that option B is closer to the mark because that’s easier to rectify. Just let the kids have their bracelets back, and use any errant behaviour that arises from them as an opportunity to speak about breast cancer and, better yet, why boobies, boobs, breasts etc. aren’t cause to act like an idiot. That could go a long way to diminishing the actual distraction which, let’s be honest, isn’t the bracelet.

OPINION ▼ THE PROVINCE

TV stunts won’t solve court problems P

remier Christy Clark handed her opponents more ammunition last week with her latest “ready, fire, aim” episode, calling for radio and TV coverage of Stanley Cup riot prosecutions. The day after this half-baked idea was announced, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond had to sign an executive order directing Crown prosecutors to ask judges for broadcast coverage. Prosecutors have enough trouble getting convictions in our rstumbling, delay-plagued court system without spending time on TV applications for minor cases. Bond referred reporters to the long list of conditions under which broadcasting may be done from court. In the unlikely event a judge consents to broadcast access, nothing can be aired until at least two hours after a morning or afternoon session has been adjourned.

VICTORIA VIEWS

Tom Fletcher Absurdly, everyone involved, from lawyers to witnesses to defendants, has a veto over their image or voice being broadcast. No accused people would consent to that. The rules are designed to fail. I’m all in favour of televising court, not so much to shame perpetrators as to show what a cozy little closed shop it is. I recently sat in on the plea-bargained sentence for James Roy Taylor, the former Fraser Health technology manager caught with his hand in the cookie jar for the second time in his career. Crown and defence lawyers exchanged lega-

lese barely above a whisper, congratulating each other for the elegance of the tap on the wrist they were giving Taylor for accepting multiple benefits in exchange for approving fraudulent invoices for a doctor supplying questionable electronic health services. Taylor has to do community service, pay back the lolly he admits accepting, and take a reduced pension on account of being fired as a crook. Poor fellow. Anyone who has sat in court for long sees the endless parade of adjournments and excuses that routinely substitute for progress. Years ago I publicized the efforts a pioneering group of youth court observers, ordinary citizens horrified by the sluggish pace of proceedings. Day after day they saw smirking teens watch lawyers compare schedules before heading off to lunch. Those citizens’ efforts

led to a diversion program for first-time offenders to provide timely consequences for first-time offenders. Don’t take it from me on the state of our courts. Gov. Gen. David Johnston, a law professor before being appointed the Queen’s representative in Canada, gave a speech in August in which he ripped lawyers for violating their social contract with the public with unacceptable delays. “We enjoy a monopoly to practise law,” Johnston told the Canadian Bar Association meeting. “In return, we are duty-bound to serve our clients competently, to improve justice and to continuously create the good. That’s the deal.” As usual, the political debate is nearly sterile. The NDP wants more judges, prosecutors, sheriffs and courthouses. Pour more money in, just like the school and health systems, says the party that hasn’t had a

new idea in 30 years. Bond did propose a new idea last week. Probation orders with conditions will soon be available for those charged with public drunkenness under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act rather than the Criminal Code. But they would still have to go to court. Perhaps the government could take a cue from their recent revision of impaired driving laws, giving police the ability to assess fines and impound vehicles on the spot. Perhaps by the time the next big drunken riot starts to brew, cops would actually be able to offer consequences. Going around the court system is their best bet these days.

FourChange not The efforts of jamboree volunteers appreciated treated fairly To the editor: I was surprised and disappointed to read Jennifer Smith’s column on the FourChange group. f Our group is simply a community group that is indicating its preferred candidates for the upcoming municipal election. Our group is no different than other groups that have indicated their preferred candidates in previous municipal elections. In provincial and federal elections, many people commonly place signs on their lawn indicating their preferred candidate. This is not being disrespectful to other candidates, it is simply people getting involved in the democratic process. It is unfortunate that is something of which you do not approve. Brad Cronquist, FourChange.org

To the editor: On Oct. 1 and 2, 2011 COYSA (Central Okanagan Youth Soccer Association) had its wind up Jamboree for all kids aged 7 to 10. There were 164 teams with 12 to 14 players per team each playing two games over a two-day period. All the players were fed a meal of hot dog, juice and chips plus there were hamburgers, coffee and muffins for the adults. This was a wonderful event despite the weather

and would not have been possible with out the myriad of volunteers that put it on. A great big thank you to donations by S&K Forming, Astral Media, Avalon Party, Sun-Rype, Canscribe Career College and Cherry Hill Coffee.

fer Smith, in recognizing Charlie Hodge, Angela Reid-Nagy, Kevin Craig and Michele Rule for their many hours of service to the community.

NEWS ▼ CIVIC ELECTION

Nomination deadline is today for civic candidates Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

With the deadline of 4 p.m. today for candidates to turn in their nomination papers for a seat on a municipal council, regional district board or board of education in B.C., it appears Kelowna may break the record it set three years ago for the number of names appearing on the municipal election on the ballot.

In 2008, 36 people ran for the eight available councillor seats. As of yesterday afternoon, 32 sets of nomination papers had been filled at city hall, and traditionally there is a last minute rush of candidates who show up to file papers at the last possible moment. Included in the names of the candidates who had filed as of yesterday at 3 p.m. were seven of the eight incumbent coun-

cilors. Only Coun. Andre Blanleil, who has said publicly he intends to run, was not listed as having filed his nomination papers as of yesterday afternoon. Prior to the nomination period, which started Oct. 4, 56 sets of papers were picked up by people considering a run for a seat on Kelowna council. In the mayor’s race, incumbent Sharon Shepherd, who is seeking a

It may be the least appealing item on the shopping list, but it’s time to invest in some in rubber, say Mounties. Kelowna RCMP held a press conference Thursday morning to remind local motorists that now is the time to get winter tires on the road as there may already be black ice. After all, if a crash is caused because of poor equipment, such as the wrong tires, police will issue a nasty fine. “Winter tires need a tread depth of 3.5 mm,� said Holmes, explaining that winter tires will come with a snowflake on the sidewall, or a mud and snow indication. In lower elevations it’s a matter of safely, but the higher you get the stronger the legislation. “By law you need to have all season mud and snow tires, winter tires or carry chains in higher elevations from Oct. 1 to April 31,� said Holmes, adding that being caught without will be matched with a $121 fine. Although most people have a better grasp on the importance of driving with the right equipment, than was the case in years past, Const. Tim Monteith said bald tires on icy roads has yet to become uncommon. He also wants locals to start adjusting their mindset for winter roads. That means, among other things, stop speeding up to stopped cars. Don’t tailgate and take corners sensibly.

Apple Fair hosted at Laurel building

Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Restoration of the historic Laurel Packinghouse means the 23rd annual Apple Fair can return to its familiar location and everyone can have a look

at the new digs as well. Since the Laurel was a fruit packinghouse from 1917 to the 1970s, it’s the perfect backdrop for an agricultural celebration, notes event organizer Jasmine Marshall. The renovated facil-

ity re-opened in January and it was recognized this month by Heritage B.C. with an Award of Honour, which was presented to Kelowna Museums executive director Wayne Wilson, for the Kelowna Museums Society, Jim

Meiklejohn Architect, the City of Kelowna and Sawchuk Developments Ltd. The building is home to the Orchard Industry Museum, the B.C. Wine Museum and the VQA Wine Shop, which helps raise funds for the mu-

seums’ work. The Apple Fair is an opportunity for families to enjoy live entertainment, orchard exhibits, local vendors, baked goods and food. There will also be an apple tasting table with

more than two dozen locally-grown apples to sample, organized by the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative, Westbank Harvest and Thunder Hill Farms. The fair is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

UBCO student celebrates blasphemy Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

If residents of Kelowna were offended when they saw a man dragging a 130-pound cross with a sign that read, “I am an atheist,” then Darren Sim accomplished his goal. Sim started hauling

the cross from downtown Kelowna towards UBCO at 7:20 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 30. He said that he was celebrating his freedom to blaspheme. “(September 30) is International Blasphemy Day; September 30 is when the Mohammed car-

toons were released. There was a big uproar. Secular people created this holiday to enjoy freedom of speech and the freedom to blaspheme,” said Sim. “It’s not to simply piss off religious people, but to criticize and acknowledge the right to offend people. “This piece is doing

ECCO®

precisely that: It’s a celebration of free speech.” The fourth-year UBCO fine arts student was completing his trek as an art project. He said that some people mistook the message. “A lot of local people didn’t read the sign. Lots of them have mistaken me for a Christian; they’ve applauded me. A couple people, when I told them that I was celebrating blasphemy, just turned around and left.” Sim had a friend as-

sist him by videotaping the project and providing water for Sim to drink along his journey. According to Sim, most people in the Kelowna region believe in freedom of speech; however, a double standard develops when it goes against their own beliefs. “When people say free speech, they don’t take into consideration the right to offend and when their own views get offended, they same to turn around on that really quickly.”

High-tech study funded Community Futures of the Central Okanagan has received a $60,000 federal grant to undertake the Okanagan Valley High Tech Market Expansio Project. The project is a cotinuation of a working partnership established between the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, Community Futures and the Okanagan Valley high-tech community. “This initiative will accelerate the diversification of the Okanagan Valley economy and will enhance competitiveness of our local high technology sector. It will also create jobs and grow the economy,” said local MP RonCannan. The purpose of the project is to create a more targeted external market development plan and programming that accelerates the commercialization and expansion of the Okanagan Valley technology cluster. Specifically, the project will design and execute on a series approximately five Western North America Strategic Partnership events, aimed at providing new sales and communication channels, as well as advisory role opportunities.

NEWS Grasses from A18 are mass plantings along Sunset Drive, at Stewart Park, at the H2O Aquatic Centre and in many gardens in the Quarry area of Okanagan Mission. I’d love to hear of your special places to see them. I was recently disappointed to see the fountain grass along Clement Avenue being cut off. It was in its prime and had only been blooming for a month. Part of the beauty of ornamental grasses is their winter interest. We need to learn from the wonderful public ornamental grass gardens in Germany and the Netherlands. A mass planting of ornamental grasses is one of the easiest landscapes to care for. The grasses are all cut to four inches above the ground in spring before they start new growth. Before cutting, it is best to tie up the tall varieties for ease of removal. An electric hedge trimmer makes cutting fast work. This is the only maintenance required in the entire year. For spring interest in the grass garden I recommend planting a series of spring bulbs beginning with snowdrops and winter aconite, then early, mid, and late season Narcissus intermixed with grape hyacinth. Naturalizing varieties are hardiest and will spread nicely. The dying bulb foliage will be hidden by the grasses. All are deer proof as are ornamental grasses. Many varieties of or-

EIGHT-FOOT TALL Miscanthus forms stunning

backdrop to Gwen Steele’s perennial garden and is a cheery sight all winter especially when covered with sparkling hoar frost. namental grasses are available, from two inches to more than 14 feet tall. Most are clump formers. Be sure to avoid the running varieties such as ribbon grass unless you need erosion control. There are grasses that need moist soil, ones that are very drought tolerant and everything in between. The ones that need water do best on a drip irrigation system which also minimizes water use. There are shade lovers as well as the many that thrive in full sun. All grasses belong to one of two categories. Cool season grasses begin growing in early March and bloom in June. Warm season varieties emerge in

April and have spectacular blooms in the fall. I recommend using both warm and cool season grasses if you are making an ornamental grass garden so that you get early growth and bloom as well as the showy display from the warm season varieties in the fall. For more information, I recommend my favourite ornamental grass authors—Piet Oudolf, Rick Darke and John Greenlee. The website www. bluestem.ca is alsoexcellent.

Optimism is P usually a trait of healthy people

retty much everyone can tell you if they are a “glass is half full” or “glass is half empty” person. Do you tend to look on the bright side of things? Or pick out the negative aspects of most situations? If you are an optimist,

you’re not alone. Research has shown that optimism is a human trait we are pre-disposed to as a species. Research in the past few years has taught us a lot about how optimism works in the human brain. One brain imaging study completed in 2009

asked volunteers to imagine going on vacation to a variety of different locations and to rate them by how happy they thought they would be in each place. After the destinations were rated, volunteers were asked to pick between two spots they had

This reinforcement of our decisions likely helps us feel confident in the myriad choices we have to make every day. When our brain changes to affirm a choice, we do not go through life with un-ending buyers remorse— second guessing every choice.

some positives to looking on the bright side—but there are also some dangerous risks associated with putting on the blinders to potentially negative ramifications of some decisions. In an article on the

Other studies have shown our brains tend to encode positive information that will enhance optimism but will not do the same for unexpectedly negative information— thus creating an optimism bias as the ‘good news’ sticks with us more permanently than the bad. We don’t know why humans seem to be generally hard-wired for optimism, but optimists are known to be generally healthier and live longer than pessimists and some new research indicates this trait may be linked to some specific genes. For this reason, some believe there could be an evolutionary advantage to the trait. Obviously, there are

Green plastic lawns can’t trump real plants in Kelowna I

Order a reprint of a Capital News photo at our website: kelownacapnews.com

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves mer is upon us, they dry and turn beige and brown, while their neighbours, sages and rabbitbrush, are silver and grey. Rabbitbrush blossoms at this time of year into golden-yellow brushes that are beautiful with the silvery-gray foliage. Although we’ve paved over much of their native habitat, there are still some along the Okanagan Connector above Peachland and down Drought Hill along Highway 97, and far more on the hillsides between Peachland and Summerland. They would be an ideal candidate with bunchgrass or other dryland grasses to plant in a median. They would provide us with the kind of beauty that’s natural to the Okanagan. Watch as you leave town and see how the native hillsides are decked out, with yellow sunflowers in spring and dried grasses in late summer, and the occasional wildflower like the elegant Mariposa Lily or Brown-eyed Susan. Then in fall, they’re filled with colour again as the sumac leaves turn brilliant red against the silver sagebrush, and the rabbitbrush blooms in yellow swatches. Sage would grow too big for a median perhaps, but rabbitbrush stays low and so do many droughttolerant grasses. Watering such plants is unnecessary, as is fertilizing them, and carefully mulched, no weeding should be needed. Most weeds would die anyway without irrigation.

On natural hillsides, such plants grow against a backdrop of granite or other rock, so the occasional large rock would add interest to the scene. But green plastic? Do we really have so little imagination, no resourcefulness? And, in the end, whenever that may be, instead of an island of life, we will have a discoloured, tattered chunk

of greenish nylon and soy, likely spattered with salt and mud and gravel from passing vehicles. And, in the end, it will have to added to the landfill. This is one pilot project I sincerely hope doesn’t appear to be a success in anyone’s eyes, Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News.

RABBITBRUSH is a drought-tolerant bush native to the Okanagan.

n a city that prides itself on the beauty of its natural surroundings and the colourful baskets of living flowers that dot its downtown, there’s an unmistakeable irony in the decision to roll out green plastic lawn on the medians between lanes of traffic. Plastic grass belongs in the world of Barbi and Ken, the plastic people, not in this world of panoramic lakeviews and natural wild beauty. I’ll concede that having workers pull weeds between busy lanes of traffic is unsafe, but with careful planting, selection of drought-tolerant, hardy varieties of plants and use of a weed seedfree mulch, watering and maintenance of real plants should also be unnecessary. Besides, our medians should be lower than our roads, not higher, in order that there’s open ground for roadway runoff to be filtered through prior to it seeping into natural waterways— kind of like a rain garden. Yet all our medians seem to be raised ones, and many are of impermeable surfaces from which the rain simply runs off, carrying whatever impurities emanate from asphalt—or in this case—nylon, plastic and soy—into the nearest waterway. We don’t even know what chemical compounds may leach from these man-made materials. On the other hand, a median of plants and open ground will give off oxygen, take in rainwater runoff and filter it to reduce stormwater pollution, then cool the air around it, instead of heating it up as plastic will do. However, we do need to change our thinking about what’s beautiful. Despite what all the ads tell us about the beauty of lush green landscapes, set off with wet green lawns, in the neardesert of the Okanagan, real beauty comes without makeup. It’s sometimes a shade of green in spring, but after clumps of grass erupt and the heat of sum-

am continuously on the receiving end of statements that sounds like, “Wow, I didn’t know you could fix that.” We are in an exciting age of new discoveries and with it comes great alternatives to health care and whole body wellness. In my opinion, health care today is saturated and inundated with only one option—medicate it and the problem will go away. I think there is a greater value in prevention. There is a time and place for medical expertise and there always will be. There is also a time and place for other areas of expertise. You wouldn’t have a plumber do your dental work, would you? Today, people are casing a weary eye at the pharmaceutical industry, or ‘Big Pharma’ as it is known. Same goes for medical doctors. But don’t blame your MDs. We need their expertise and we are fortunate to have some truly excellent physicians here in Kelowna. I would not want to practice in a city that does not have their skill. Don’t misunderstand me. I am not criticizing medicine; in fact my original training is in the medical field. Some of my patients are local physicians and nurses. One of their most common complaints is that so much of what they see that is ailing people can be avoided through preventative measures. Before you throw medication at a problem, don’t neglect your own influence in your health care. Put as much time into it as you would renegotiating your mortgage. What is exciting is that even though there has been an orchestrated attempt at suppressing alternative care, the use of alternative care has increased exponentially over the last 10 years. The New England Journal of Medicine published a paper that stated that in the last year 71 per cent of people with an ailment sought out ‘alternative care.’ What is interesting is that only 21

per cent confessed this to their MDs. — One must understand that the big pharmaceutical companies are not as altruistic as one may think. No, it is not a huge Markus Thiel conspiracy involving medical schools, government and huge corporations. It is just business. How many times have you heard of a medication being removed from the shelves because of past complications as a result of taking them? I have read countless articles and reports on the matter of the drug companies and the FDA suppressing contrary reports as to the efficacy of a medication. I believe your influence is strongest when you consider your life choices and the alternatives that are available to you. Live a healthy lifestyle and use all the alternative resources available to you. Consult with a nutritionist, an acupuncturist, physiotherapist, nutritionist, massage therapist, chiropractor, etc. One piece of advice is this—interview them. Make sure they are a right fit for you. See how much time they take to examine you and talk with you. If they don’t like a patient who asks question, move on. There is a medical clinic in town that interviews their prospective patients before taking them on. If they don’t want you as a patient they don’t accept you. Don’t you think you should do the same? You know this from experience. There are good mechanics, lawyers, florists, etc., and there are bad ones. Why do you think a health professional would be any different? Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions. I get nervous if my patient are not asking me questions or bringing in articles for my review. If they are not asking questions, then, they are not involved. Get involved. Your life and it’s quality is on the line. Dr. Markus Thiel is an author, lecturer and doctor of Chiropractic in Kelowna.

oday marks the final day for municipal election candidates to file their papers to run for city council —which also means this will be my last column until Nov. 25. The past three years I have not been allowed to write about local municipal politics and will not make any specific comments now. However, here are some very generic election thoughts to consider on Nov.19 when you go the polls. On Election Day (or at the advance polls) you will get to pick one person for mayor and up to eight for city council. However, you do not have to pick eight councillors. You can vote for one, two, or as many as you like up to eight, something many people are not aware of. There is logic in only voting for those you truly believe will do a good job, rather than fill in all eight choices. If you want the person(s) you really like to be successful, then do not vote for others you’re not sure about. Otherwise your vote for them simply negates the vote for the person you like. Quite often, a savvy voter will simply vote for one or two candidates they really believe in. Do your homework. Often candidates have websites that explain their platforms or, at the very least, a brochure. The City of Kelowna website has links to the candidates If you’re considering an incumbent—check the actual minutes of the meetings to see who voted how. Give them a phone call as their numbers are posted on the city website Check the attendance records of current council members. Who is actually at the meetings on a regular basis, and on time? I firmly believe that Election Day should be held Nov. 12, the day after Remembrance Day. If one truly wants to honour our fallen soldiers and those who served us so well during the past

The best of the West to shine here Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Calling your tournament the Best of the West is one thing. Making it the best of the West is something else entirely. But organizers of the Best of the West senior boys’ and girls’ volleyball tournament in Kelowna this weekend have done just that with one of the biggest and most ambitious high school volleyball tournaments on the volleyball schedule. Ninety-six teams will meet in Kelowna—48 girls and 48 boys teams— to compete for the title of Best of the West. The event has come a long ways from where it began, as a 16-team tournament in 1996. “This truly is the biggest and the best test for everyone in B.C. especially at this time of the year,” said KSS senior girls coach Tony Sodaro, whose team heads into the tournament as the number one AAAA girls team in B.C. “This gives all the top teams a chance to play all the other top teams. Everybody gets equitable competition all weekend long with a chance to

move up and play some tougher teams.” Teams range from the top AAAA schools on the girls side of the draw and AAA on the boys side down to the smaller schools at the AA and A level. Every region of B.C. is represented from the north to the Kootenays, Vancouver and Vancouver Island. And Kelowna and area schools will be front and centre at all levels. Along with the Owls senior girls, who have won the Best of the West three straight years and have won two tournaments in a row this year, there are plenty of other top local schools taking part. The KSS senior boys are ranked number three in boys AAA while Mount Boucherie is ranked number eight. George Elliot in Lake Country is the fourth-ranked AA team while perennial powerhouses Kelowna Christian and Immaculata sit near the top of the singleA rankings. Both the boys and girls sides of the draw are littered with top 10 teams in B.C. while a half-dozen schools from the Edmonton area will bring compe-

tition from across the border. Aside from being the largest single tournament on the calendar the Best of the West is also unique in that it brings boys and girls teams together in one gymnasium—or in this case four gyms. Unlike in college, where men’s and women’s teams travel together and play one after another, the high school schedule rarely has

boys and girls teams playing together. “The fact that it is boys and girls coming together adds a new dimension,” said Sodaro. “All year we don’t play in the same gym, from the pre-season to the provincials, the guys and girls programs are completely separated. This is kind of nice.

University programs travel together as boys and girls teams. I think this prepares the players for what’s ahead.” Four gymnasiums are being for the games thatstarted this morning: KSS, UBCO, Immaculata and Kelowna Christian. The headquarters of the event though is KSS, where leadership students have been preparing the school all week, showing up in school colours, building a large tournament program and filling the school with the spirit that sports events provide. “This is another way to promote school spirit,” said tournament co-organizer Fane Triggs. “I think it’s just great for the kids. We try to promote all the activities at the school and volleyball is one of them. It’s another way to make school fun for kids. Kids are really working hard these days and they need to have some fun things to look forward to.” Games will take place all day today and Saturday with the finals set to take place in the KSS gymnasium on Saturday beginning at 4 pm. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Rockets hit the road for three key games against B.C. rivals Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Rockets are back on the road this weekend, facing three divisional games and a tough weekend of travel. The Rockets left Kelowna on Thursday heading for the team’s first

three game weekend of the young Western Hockey League season. Kelowna will play in Victoria tonight and Saturday before coming back to the Interior and meeting Kamloops on Sunday afternoon. The road trip comes after Wednesday night’s

4-2 loss to Medicine Hat, the club’s third straight loss that dropped its record to an even 3-3 on the season. “I think it will be good for us to get on the bus and get on the road,” said head coach Ryan Huska. “We have a busy weekend. We have three big road games

within our division and we have to make sure we get off to a good start in those games.” The Rockets fell behind Medicine Hat 3-1 on Wednesday before firing 18 shots on the Tigers’ net in the third period. However the comeback fell short in front of over 6,000

fans at Prospera Place. Forward Spencer Main says the team needs to start putting a full 60 minutes together. “Once we start putting all three periods together things will start going our way,” said Main, who had one of the Kelowna goals on Wednesday.

Local boys win gold The Thompson Okanagan Football Club under-18 boys brought home gold from the Addidas/Whitecaps Champions Cup Invitational Showcase Tournament. TOFC knocked off Fusion FC 5-3 on penalty kicks in Sunday’s final in Vancouver after the teams played to a 3-3 draw in regulation. After 15 minutes Andrew Stevenson latched onto a through ball and showed great strength to hold off both centre backs and put TOFC 1-0 ahead. Fusion came back strongly, however, and tied the game 1-1. Jacob Rivet in goal given no chance with a close range header. Five minutes before half time Andrew Stevenson scored his second to put TOFC 2-1 up, an-

other great effort from the edge of the box this time. The score remained at 2-1 at half time. The game was end to end with Fusion pressing hard, but Okanagan dangerous on the counter attack. Both teams missed great chances, but it was Fusion who scored next to tie the game up at 2-2. A very exciting game came to a climax with five minutes remaining as TOFC were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box. Austin Schneebeli stepped up and rammed the ball into the top corner. Fusion fought hard in the dying minutes though, and were rewarded with a last gasp equalizer to tie the game up for a third time. The game was a great spectacle for the large number of spectators there, and the

penalty shootout was also very exciting to watch. Both teams calmly netted their first three spot kicks: Robin Whittaker, Andrew Stevenson and Cormac Southam (Nelson) for TOFC. Dan Thornton (Penticton) increased the pressure on Fusion by slotting a fourth. Then goalkeeper Jake Bainas (Kamloops) became a hero when he dove full stretch to save a well taken penalty. This meant that Brenden Melin had a shot for the cup, and he duly delivered, much to the excitement of all the TOFC players, coaches and parents. TOFC opened the tourney with a 3-0 win over Surrey, then followed up with a 5-0 victory over South Fraser.

SPORTS â–ź OKANAGAN SUN

Doege named top defensive player For the second consecutive year, Steven Doege has been named the outstanding defensive player in the B.C. Football Conference. The three-year veteran out of Rutland put together another solid season for the Okanagan Sun with a conference-leading 11 sacks. He now has 30.5 sacks for his career, leaving him just four shy of the all-time league record. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Doege added

28 tackles, 14 assists and a pair of fumble recoveries in 2011. A stat that didn’t factor in for defensive purposes was his four carries on offence and three touchdowns scored, displaying Doege’s skills on both sides of the ball. He was also named the conference’s top defensive lineman. Joining Doege on the BCFC all-star team are four of his Okanagan Sun teammates.

On defense, is fellow lineman Sam Looysen who had 15 tackles, five assists, three sacks and two fumble recoveries. Brennan Van Nistelrooy made the grade in the defensive secondary. The Lethbridge product had 20 tackles, seven assists, five interceptions, a touchdown and two fumble recoveries. On offense, Dan Turek was named as one of four all-star receivers. In his fourth season, Tur-

ek caught 31 balls for 768 yards and five touchdowns. For the second consecutive year, tackle Drew Digout was named along the offensive line. The defending champion Vancouver Island Raiders led the way with nine all-starsm including five on offense. The Langley Rams Nick Downey was the only player named to two positions, at receiver and on special teams.

Raiders last weekend. “Sunday showed that you can’t go into a game and not perform just because you had an excellent practice, expect things to go your way and have teams lay down for you,� said Casey. “We, every coach and player, will correct our mental mistakes that cost us first place, and

be ready for the Rams.� In the two regular season meetings between the clubs, the Rams gave the Sun all they could handle. On Aug. 6 at the Apple Bowl, the Sun emerged from a wild fourth quarter with a 33-23 win. A week later in Langley, Okanagan came from behind in the final minutes for a nar-

row 15-14 victory. However, in the two months since—with the exception of last Sunday’s loss—Casey said his team has shown considerable improvement in every facet of the game. Player for player, and pound for pound, Casey remains steadfast and confident that his club can

It certainly didn’t show Sunday, but our squad is extremely talented. “I still would put our guys up against any other team in the country.� One of the keys to the Sun’s success Sunday will be stopping, or at the very least, limiting the damage done by Rams receiver and kick returner Nick Downey. The Rams biggest offensive threat, Downey scored a BCFC-leading 15 touchdowns this season. Kick off Sunday at the Apple Bowl between the Sun and Rams is 2 p.m., with the winner advancing to the BCFC title game. Barring a major upset this weekend, the championship game will be played in Oct. 22. in Nanaimo, home of the defending champion Raiders. The Raiders (10-0) will host the Westshore Rebels (5-5) in the other semifinal on Saturday.

UBCO’s rugby team ready to host inaugural Hindson Cup tourney Rugby at UBC’s Okanagan campus looks to take a giant step in its development by honouring newly-minted B.C. Rugby Hall of Fame inductee Ro Hindson with an inaugural tournament hosted in Kelowna. The Hindson Cup will bring together the top two university teams in Alberta, which will be determined from a mid-October competition. These top two teams will come to Kelowna on Oct. 28 and

29 to play the UBC Heat and Simon Fraser University to determine a regional champion. The Hindson Cup winning team will then have the right to challenge the winner of the annual boot game between UBC Thunderbirds and the University of Victoria for the title of Western University Champion. This tournament will be the first officially hosted event for rugby and UBC’s Okanagan campus and coach Rob O’Brien

has big plans for the future of the event. “I envision this championship being a play-off component of a CIS sanctioned National rugby championship. However, that is a long term dream.” With O’Brien’s lofty goals for the event, he felt giving the tournament an appropriate moniker would instantly add to the lustre. “When thinking of this championship we wanted one [a name] that was synonymous with the

core values we wanted players to achieve, such as intensity, drive and competitive spirit. With that in mind, we decided to name the event the Hindson Cup, to honour Ro Hindson.” Ro Hindson was elected into the B.C. Rugby Hall of fame at a special dinner in Kelowna Aug. 13. Choosing to name the tournament the Hindson Cup, “will give young elite athletes an appropri-

Warriors start six-game home stand The Westside Warriors rcontinue a six-game home stand at Royal LePage Place this weekend with a pair of games against two of its close rivals. The Warriors (5-3-00) meet Penticton (5-1-01) for the first time tonight before hosting the Salmon tArm Silverbacks (2-5-0r1) on Saturday. “I think we’re going to see some real skill this rweekend,” said Warriors rhead coach Rylan Ferster. “Penticton has lots of skill and are a very good team and we’re excited to play k▼

them. Salmon Arm is another team that has some guys that can really play so we’re going to have to be good defensively. This will be a good test for our group.” The Warriors split the first two games of its home stand last weekend, beating Merritt before losing to Chilliwack. Now they have four straight at RLP beginning with the games against Penticton and Salmon Arm and continuing next weekend when they host Coquitlam and Prince George.

Ferster says his club is shaping up to be a team that plays well defensively, rather than outscoring its opponents. “We’re going to have to be sound defensively and I think through the first eight games we’ve been relatively good at that,” he said. “We can’t try to run and gun with teams. We’ve been happy with the way we’ve been playing in our own end so far.” Game time at RLP is 7 p.m. both nights this weekend.

••• The Kelowna Chiefs will look to get back on the winning track this weekend as they continue play in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. The Chiefs will host the Princeton Posse at Rutland Arena tonight (7 p.m.) before traveling to Penticton to play the Lakers on Sunday at the South Okanagan Events Centre. An injury-plagued Kelowna club has dropped six straight games to fall to 3-7 on the season.

ate mentor as they push themselves toward rugby excellence,” continued O’Brien. Hindson will have some connection to UBC’s Okanagan campus and will most assuredly be following the growth of Heat athletics, as his son Ben will be suiting up as a freshman for this year’s Heat basketball squad. Ben is a noticeable presence on the basketball court as he stands 6-foot-9 and shows the promise of

women’s international performance,” adds O’Brien. “CIS provides high-level competition for players to focus on, but it also provides professional coaching during a player’s critical development time. Unfortunately, young men do not have the same opportunities to compete in CIS level competition for 15 a-side rugby.” O’Brien would like to see that changed stating, “my long term objective is to change that.”

Welder 5th in age group at worlds Consider it mission accomplished for Laurelee Welder. t The 57-year-old from Kelowna—whose goal was a top-five finish at the World Ironman Championship in Kona, Hawaii—turned in a fifthplace showing in the women’s 55 to 59 division. r Welder, who was fourth last year, completed the 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike ride and 42 km run on Saturday in 11 hours 47 minutes 18 seconds. “The race went very well,” said Welder, who is a three-time age group winner at Ironman Canada. “I was seven minutes slower than last year, but still managed to get on the podium with a fifth-place win.” Canadians showed

being an intimidating post player in his career for the Heat. O’Brien has lofty dreams for rugby at UBC and now that the school is playing in the CIS these dreams have already taken a large step. Women’s rugby is an official sport played in the CIS and Rob would love to take his sport there. “CIS level competition has had a very positive impact on the performance of the Canadian

well in Welder’s age class in Hawaii, taking four of the top eight positions. Among other local athletes who competed in Kona was Heather Wurtele, 32, who was eighth in the women’s pro division in nine hours 17 minutes 56 seconds. Kelowna’s Chris Young, 23, in just his second Ironman race, was 14th in the men’s 18 to 24 age division in 10:06:35. Welder was impressed by the accomplishments of some other fellow Canadians and friends. Carol Peters and Cullen Goodyear, both of Vancouver, were first and second respectively in the 60 to 64 age group. Milos Kostic from Regina set a new course record in the men’s 70 to 74 age group with a time of 11:45:05.

Wrestling returns to Rutland Professional wrestling fans were shocked last month at the Rutland Park Society’s ‘Five For Fighting’ fundraising event, when local wrestling hero Marty (Mad Dog) Sugar was savagely attacked by K.C. Andrews with a Taser after a contest that saw Andrews cheat to defeat his bitter rival. After being forced to miss a Penticton event the very next night—coincidentally, the town KC Andrews now calls home— Sugar is determined to have his revenge at the appropriately-named Shocktoberfest on tonight at the

Rutland Centennial Hall. Sugar and Andrews will meet in a shock-collar match: the first of its kind in the Okanagan. “Andrews embarrassed me in my hometown, and traumatized my children,� said Sugar. “So I’m going all-out to embarrass him at Shocktoberfest. I’m not going to let some punk kid from Ontario use me as a stepping-stone in the Okanagan.� Andrews is neither fazed by Sugar’s dogged determination or by the match stipulation. Recently, via Twitter, he urged

Sugar to not only leave his family at home but to give up his quest for revenge completely. “I warned you. I’ve been warning you for months. Stop. Stop now. Before it gets out of hand.� Another Kelowna wrestler, Kyle Sebastian, continues his long-standing feud with the veteran Vance (Mr. Beefy Goodness) Nevada. The two wrestlers have battled across Western Canada, and their rivalry will heat up here. The powerful Albertan, Massive Damage, will also return to Kelow-

na for the first time in over a year; and Mark (Mr. Intensity) Posey, one of the most disliked villains in all of Alberta, looks to make his debut in Rutland against the talented young Adam Ryder. New Thrash Wrestling champion, Black Dragon, will also be on hand, as will Michael (Top Drawer) More, Unholy Minion, and Slave. Doors open on at 7:30 p.m. with the opening match starting at 8 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $10 and were available in advance at Valley Pawnbrokers, Players Choice, Fernando’s Taqueria.

NEWS ▼ EUROPE HOLIDAY

Eat local mentality prevalent in the UK W

e’ve just returned from a fabulous food and wine adventure in Europe. I have so much to tell you that I am going to be compiling three articles to run in a series. I hope you enjoy my tales. Our journey began with a visit to the wonderfully posh London. This beautiful city is filled with treasures—art, history, beautiful gardens and, of course, the Royals. Highlight of this trip for me was a visit to world famous Borough Market. Set beneath the railway viaducts between the river Thames and Borough High Street in South East London, this sprawling feast for the senses is laid out in a huge labyrinthine central area as well as two more self-contained markets.

FOOD & WINE TRAILS

Jennifer Schell The offerings were a reminder of the exquisite farm and sea bounty available in the UK. Wild meats are very popular in the British diet and I loved seeing venison, pheasant, pigeon available. The UK is really promoting an “eat local” mentality and hugely supporting and marketing products from their local farmers and artisans. I saw this push everywhere, down to a large manufacturer’s biscuits advertising that only UK wheat was used in their making. Very inspiring.

Off we went then to Norfolk, the romantic, fairytale English countryside smack in the middle of the farmlands. I almost wept when we arrived at our charming farmhouse, laden with vine and rose bushes, with cows mooing in the background and a symphony of birds calling in the trees —I found myself expecting Mr. Darcy to appear. Not for the faint of heart, driving in the countryside is somewhat of a harrowing experience. Starting with the fact that the steering wheel is on the other side of the car, the winding, mindboggling maze of sidewalk-sized roads between villages does offer a challenge. However, once mastering the local driving technique and etiquette (i.e. when spotting another car or, God forbid, a

large tractor coming your way, immediately drive off the side of the road and teeter on an angle until they pass), it does become quite fun. We were thrilled when we realized that the seaside was only 20 minutes away. You may recognize the village name of Morston (famous for their mussels), it along with quaint seaside villages like Blakeney or Holkham offer stunning vistas of the North Sea and delicious crab and other seafood. Do not miss Holkham beach. With miles and miles and miles of sand set in front of a beautiful forest nature reserve, walking, horse backing riding, picnicking or just relaxing make for a perfect day there. We were told that the Queen summers her horses nearby and they exercise on this beach. Pubs are around every bend, as suspected. Lots of the traditionals left, however, the gastro pub now reigns supreme all over the UK. The Wiveton Bell is a must stop. Located in

a tiny village with a vista of an ancient church set across the road, guests can dine inside or out. A charming interior with wide rustic beamed ceilings, wooden tables and a cozy ambiance, we felt right at home with the local crowd. I loved the array of wellies (wellington boots) lined up at the bar—some with their furry best friend alongside to enjoy a pint and some good local gossip. Sunday lunch is quite the event in the UK. The Brits have a lovely tradition of sitting down to a big midday meal on Sundays. The Bell serves up a beautiful award-winning Sunday Roast menu: Paul Graves Local Beef Sirloin or Pork Loin with Crackling, Duck Fat Roast Potatoes, Cauliflower Cheese, Seasonal Vegetables and mile high Yorkshire Pudding with homemade Hot Horseradish or Apple Sauce. Yes please! Do make reservations after second breakfast for elevenses or a luncheon on Sundays. www.wivetonbell.co.uk After falling madly in

NEWS ▟ MP’S REPORT

Economic indicators bode well for Canada’s future I n keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving being celebrated last weekend, there are a few things that have happened in Ottawa for which I am thankful. My colleague, Okanagan- Coquihalla MP Dan Albas, tabled Bill C-311, which seeks to amend the archaic Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act by creating an exemption that will allow individuals to transport wine for personal consumption across provincial borders without breaking the law. Coming from the Okanagan Valley, which is home to a number of internationally award winning wineries, the proposed amendment will produce immediate benefits to the B.C. wine and culinary tourism sector. Not only will it generate jobs and create secondary economic activity,

Ron Cannan it will enhance consumer accessibility to B.C. wine and improve marketing options and sales to a larger consumer base. I spoke with B.C. Premier Christy Clark in June when she met with our Conservative B.C. caucus, and she indicated she was willing to help move the issue forward. With the resounding support already expressed from Canadian wine producers and consumers alike, the intent of

Bill C-311 is well-timed, a win-win for everyone especially in our province and here in the Okanagan. Economic indicators continue to look up for the business sector as well. This week Forbes, the influential business magazine, has ranked Canada as the best country in the world to do business. Forbes magazine also declared that “Canada’s economy has held up better than most,â€? praising our low-tax plan for Canadian businesses. This comes on top of the fact that Canada has: • the strongest job growth record in the G-7, with nearly 600,000 net new jobs created since July 2009; • that the International Monetary Fund forecasts Canada will have the strongest overall economic growth in the G-7 over the next two years;

• that we have the lowest total government net debt-to-GDP ratio in the entire G-7; • that the World Economic Forum ranks Canada’s financial system as the soundest in the world for the fourth consecutive year; and • that Moody’s has renewed Canada’s AAA credit rating due to our “economic resiliency, very high government financial strength, and a low susceptibility to event risks.â€? I know that the global economic downturn is still cause for some anxiety, but we can be thankful that Canadians are weathering the global economic challenges in relatively good shape and that the federal government remains focussed on the economy as the top priority. As one of our wisest

constituents said amidst some very tough times, all he wanted was enough and that more than enough was too much. These are not the words of someone who lived through the Great Depression. These were the words of nine-yearold Caleb Lanz, a young boy in our constituency who passed away on Sept.

24 after a 20 month battle with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), a rare form of brain cancer. Attending the memorial service with my wife Cindy, it was clear that Caleb had touched many hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with Caleb’s mom Shelley, his dad Calvin, his sister Avery and their extended family

Association gives dog owners a voice Kelowna’s dog community has a new voice. It is called Kelowna Dog Association. Organized as a notfor-profit volunteer association with six volunteer directors, the goal of the Kelowna Dog Association is to transform Kelowna from a less-than dog friendly city into a place that recognizes the intrinsic value of dogs and the people who care for them. The association has established a mandate with several objectives. One is to develop a strong level of input at City Hall. The association wants to restore what it calls a sense of worth among dog owners. “We have come to accept having to drive to another neighbourhood because their local parks do not permit dogs, not even on leash,� said an association press release. “Many have even resigned themselves to living with sub-standard conditions of dog parks or exercise pens, saying our dogs like them. We the human factor in the equation deserve a park worthy of the name ‘park.’�

Art Indie jazz quartet on musical cutting edge gallery to host auction ▼ MARIA IN THE SHOWER

ON THE CUTTING edge of the independent jazz scene, the high-energy band Maria In The Shower will perform in concert at the Rotary Centre For The Arts on Oct.28.

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Maria in Shower musicians might have been clowning around when they came up with their name, but at the very least it set a precedent for mixing antics, music and intrigue. The name is actually a snippet from a collaborative painting underway in their living room when trumpet/accordion player Jack Garton was making a booking, and was likely painted over shortly thereafter. Nevertheless, the moment and the words live on in their part vaudeville, part cabaret, always interesting jazz-style musings that have been with them since the their multi-coloured suit-wearing band geek days. “We formerly met at some sort of garage sale picking through records,” said bass player Brendon Hartley, of meeting guitarist Martin Reisle. The pair left a stack of 15-cent Oscar Peterson records behind—an offence burned in their collective brains—though they thankfully appear to have kept the colourful suits Reisle’s mother used to fashion, or at least the idea of dressing the part. Apt to show up in early 1900s period costume, the band likes it when their audience gets into the act and have thus asked fans in Kelowna to

stuff. On that note, drummer Todd Biffard grew

up in Kelowna, and likely knows the town isn’t breaking an fashion boundaries. He wasn’t a major part of the nightlife when he lived there though. “At the time there were a lot of indie pop bands and kids doing punk, but I was always a kid who hung out in the band room. I was a jazz musician,” he said. He was also a member of the Kelowna Legion Pipe Band and used his status in the band to leverage his way into the veteran’s lair where as a 16year-old he could squeeze out a few drinks. It was good training, he says, for his future profession. “Being a musician is one of the few professions where you drink on the job. We’ll show up to a gig and they hand us the drink tickets and I’m like I don’t really need this many drinks.” That idiosyncrasy aside, it would appear they’ve managed to work their way into a life at night rather well.

Describing themselves as “big hippie weirdos” in their early days, they’ve clearly lived the artist’s life, Hartley studying photography at Emily Carr before joining the band and Garton working at Red Hot Video (porn) to support himself on the way up. In their latest endeavour, they’re even helping revive the once seedyWaldorf Hotel in Vancouver as a house band, establishing the four as fulltime musicians. Whether they make it as artists for hire remains to be seen, but they’re certainly on the cutting edge of B.C.’s independent jazz scene at the moment and an act well worth stopping into the Rotary Centre for the Arts to see. Maria in the Shower plays the RCA on Friday, Oct. 28, 421 Cawston Ave. Adults are $15 and students $12.

Building a theme park one block at a time Marjie Lambert CONTRIBUTOR

WINTER HAVEN, Fla.—This is what a theme park built for children looks like: Kids are driving slow one-seater toy cars while their parents watch from the sidelines. They are steering boats, turning water cannons on each other, playing with Lego toys while their parents hold their place in line for a ride. The roller coasters are not too high, not too fast. There are no teens necking in dark corners. The park is Legoland California, near San Diego. On Oct. 15, its sister park will open in Winter Haven, about 40 miles from Orlando. It will be the only major park in Central Florida designed for children ages 2-12. Legoland is not intended for parkgoers of all ages; it doesn’t have heartin-your-throat roller coasters or rides with complicated story lines and expensive cutting-edge visuals. What it does have is statuary and cityscapes built of Lego parts and rides that look like they were. It has attractions that demand a little more participation by the kids _ hoist yourself up a tower with a rope on a pulley; steer a boat that is not on tracks; shoot a stream of water at a fake fire; clamber up a chute made of rope mesh. It has “pink-knuckle” rides, small coasters just fast enough to give a youngster a thrill but not so scary that the small knuckles gripping a safety bar turn white. And it has plenty of opportunities to play with

“Disneyland is overwhelming for them,” he said. “They’re still not at the age where Disneyland makes sense for us. These parks are more comfortable for this age.” Legoland promotes its parks as being more interactive than other parks, starting with the Lego toys that are available for children to play with at different stations. In the Imagination Zone, youngsters can build a Lego car, play with a robot hero, or build something from bricks. “Kids come to Legoland and they say ‘I want to build.’ So we made a room for them to build in,” said Julie Estrada, spokeswoman for the California park. Legoland Florida was built on the site of the former Cypress Gardens, which closed for good in 2009—73 years after it opened. Some elements of Cypress Gardens were restored and incorporated into Legoland, but most of the old park was razed and cleared away down to bare earth—and underground. “We essentially built a new park on an old site, it’s 80 per cent new,” said John Ussher, Legoland’s director of development. Models, statues and other elements are built with 50 million Lego bricks, glued with a specialty polymer to ensure they are reinforced _ just in case anyone thinks a piece of, say, Bob the Builder would make a nice souvenir. The park will have about 50 rides and attractions. The first rides that guests will see as they en-

NEWS â–ź THEME PARK

Newest Legoland in Florida aimed directly at the kids Legoland from A39 ter are the Island in the Sky and the Grand Carousel, inspired by the Lego carousel model. Many will be the same attractions that the other parks have: Driving School, the Dragon coaster, Kid Power Towers, the Royal Joust, the Miniland cityscapes. But each of the parks has its own character. In Florida, some of the unique elements will be holdovers from Cypress Gardens, Ussher said. The Lake Eloise ski stadium remains, but the water ski show will be replaced with a piratethemed water stunt show. The rotating Island in the Sky, a 153-foot tall obser-

vation tower, has been refurbished. The historic botanic gardens have been restored; waterfalls, Lego models and a scavenger hunt are being added. Two of Cypress Gardens’ roller coasters have been modified to make them more child friendly: Swamp Thing, a suspended roller coaster, is now the Flight School ride, and the Triple Hurricane wooden coaster is now the slower Coastersaurus. In addition, the Florida park’s Miniland _ cityscapes and other scenes created in painstaking detail from Lego bricks and other parts _ will have three “clusters� that the other parks don’t: a fantasy cluster with swash-

buckling pirates on two ships battling each other; a Florida cluster that includes models of the Capitol in Tallahassee, the beaches of northwest Florida, Bok Tower, the Florida Keys, South Beach and more; and another with the Kennedy Space Center and Daytona International Speedway. Still in question is what to do with Cypress Gardens’ Splash Island water park, which was part of the purchase of Cypress Gardens but is not included in the new park. Adrian Jones, the new park’s general manager, said “it’s lovely, it would be lovely to use it,� but it has to be refurbished. He said the company wants to see how successful Legoland’s first few months are before making a decision about the water park. Legoland California opened a water park attached to the main park in May 2010, the first water

park at any Legoland. It’s not a separate park, as the ones owned by the big Orlando theme parks are, but a $12 add-on to general park admission, open Memorial Day to Labor Day. With its lazy river, water slides and toddler play area, “it’s been hugely successful,� Ronchetti said. Some people spend four or five hours just in the water park, he added.

One glimpse at Crater Lake’s beauty and you’ll be hooked Craig Hill CONTRIBUTOR

CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK—Standing on a rock ledge about 18 feet above Crater f Lake, I wondered if jumping would give me seven years of bad luck. Below me, fluffy white clouds and the inverted peaks of the caldera rim reflected in what’s known as Heaven’s Mirror. Somehow, the cobalt sky looks even bluer in the lake’s pristine waters. “It’s a site you never r get used to,” said Karen Kenlan, a longtime Central Oregon resident. “It takes your breath away every time you see it.” t Formed violently 7,700 years ago when t f t

Mount Mazama erupted, collapsed and its 5-milewide crater slowly filled with rain water and snowmelt, the lake is one of the deepest (1,943 feet) and clearest in the world. Mesmerized by the beauty, I could have soaked it in for hours, but a shout jolted me back to reality. “Jump,” my kids yelled. So I stepped off the ledge, dropped 18 feet and disappeared into the blue. When Mount Mazama blew its top, it was a mountain without a name. It wasn’t until 1896 during an expedition to Wizard Island on the west side of the lake that it got its name. Fay Fuller, a journalist for the Tacoma

Ledger, now The News Tribune, christened the collapsed volcano Mount Mazama with a bottle of lake water. Fuller already was well-known for her coverage of mountaineering in the Ledger. She also was the first known woman to climb Mount Rainier, a feat she accomplished in 1890. Those in attendance at the christening included Will Steel, leader of the campaign that resulted in Crater Lake gaining national park status in 1902; legendary Forest Service chief Gifford Pinchot; and iconic naturalist John Muir. The mountain was named for the Portland mountaineering group

The Mazamas, which was founded just two years earlier, said longtime park historian Steve Marks. After Mazama collapsed, another eruption formed a cinder cone that would become Wizard Island. Steel visited the island in 1885 and gave it its name because he thought it looked like a wizard’s hat. Today, Wizard Island is a popular tourist attraction that can only be reached by a park boat. No other boats are allowed on the lake. Once on the island, visitors can hike on lava rocks or climb to the top of the cinder cone and explore the crater. “Rangers even go sled-

ding in the crater sometimes when there is snow,” said Ranger Lesley McClintock. The hike to the top of the island is about a mile, but it’s easier than the shorter and flatter walks over the old lava rocks, McClintock said. “Visiting the island is a must do,” said Martin McCartan, a manager for Xanterra, the company that oversees the park’s lodges, tours and largest campground. “It’s a heck of a hike, but it’s worth the trip.” The hike he’s referring to is the 1.1-mile hike that descends 700 feet from the crater rim to the boat dock at Cleetwood Cove. “The hike down is easy enough,” McClin-

tock said. “It’s the hike back that gets you.” Part of McClintock’s role as a ranger at Crater Lake is to act as a tour guide on the Trolley that makes multiple loops each day `around the crater rim. Whether taking the trolley or driving the loop on your own, McClintock says Rim Drive is one of the best ways to experience Crater Lake. As for good places to stop on the 92-year-old road, there are plenty: Cleetwood Cove offers the only legal hike to the lake. Trying any other route to the lake can result in a fine of $250 or more, McClintock said. Cloudcap Overlook lets you drive to al-

most 8,000 feet above sea level. Watchman Look offers views of the turquoise pools on the east side of Wizard Island. “The water is greener because it is shallower there so you see the green rays of light,” she said. “When it’s deeper you see the blue.” From Pumice Point, you can see the U-shaped valleys carved by the glaciers that once covered Mount Mazama. And from Phantom Ship Overlook, you can look down on the lake’s other island, the sharp rocky sails that form Phantom Ship. “There are so many great places to stop,” McClintock said. “You can’t go wrong.”

Working out ‘wry neck’ pain Y ou wake up in the morning and can’t turn or tip your head to one side without excruciating pain. It’s puzzling because you don’t recall any predisposing incident. You just may have been victim to the ever so common “wry neck.” Wry neck is a common term to describe a kinked neck triggered suddenly, predominantly on one side of the neck, and usually precipitated by sleep. In most cases, through the night one gets, shall we say, too comfortable. Your neck relaxes and a particular joint settles into a position that gets it a bit stuck. As the joint settles into an awkward position

KEEPING YOU MOVING

Kevin Bos as you sleep, the muscles gradually notice this and progressively go into spasm as a form of protection. In some cases you may get woken from the pain and spasm, but in others you may not notice it until you go to move in the morning. In either case, your best plan of action is to get it sorted as soon as possible before the spasm becomes chronic tightness. I have found quite

a bit of success treating this with a manual therapy approach through a technique we call muscle energy. The trick is to get the muscle spasm and guarding down so the joint can return to a neutral position. Muscle energy is essentially a hands on manual technique of contract/relax where you and I push and pull together in specific ways related to cervical joint mechanics to release the muscle and joint restriction in order to restore normal joint motion. With classic wry neck, within a two or three sessions, most restrictions resolve. There are some wry neck cases that are more stubborn. Often in these scenarios, the joint can

have a meniscoid entrapment where synovial joint tissue gets caught in the edge of the joint disallowing the surface to rest freely. These are much more difficult to treat in that they may require a more specialized technique called joint manipulation to release the entrapment. Once again, most of these problems resolve within a few sessions. It’s no fun to look at your friends sideways, the sooner you get it looked at, the sooner you’re back in action.

MOTORING ▼ KIA

The Soul shows it’s hip to be square Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

FALL CITY, Wa.— One thing about the Korean carmakers, they never stand still. In 2009, Kia introduced the Soul as a 2010 model. It was a radical departure from the humdrum models like the Spectra and Magentis that had gone before. But more than that, it was the harbinger of the Peter Schreyer design language that, with the Forte compact car, signalled not just a new design direction, but a corporate culture shift. And that direction is beating the competition at their own game and that includes the Europeans, the Americans and, yes, even the Japanese. They are doing it by offering leading edge engineering be it powerplants, transmissions, fuel savings, electronics and all at attractive price points. No matter how well a vehicle is selling, the Koreans keep on improving anything and everything.

The 2012 Soul is a perfect example. It’s only two years old and probably the best (and some might say the only) slab sided car on the market. It starts with two brand new engines. While they are the same displacement that’s about the only similarity. The 1.6-litre inline fourcylinder with gasoline direct injection now produces 138 hp (up 16 hp) and 123 lb/ft of torque while the new 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder produces 164 hp (up 22 hp) and 148 lb/ft of torque. The 1.6-litre features Kia’s Idle Stop and Go (ISG) technology as an option. It temporarily turns off the engine when the vehicle is not in motion in situations such as standing at a curb or at a stop light. The engine restarts automatically when the driver releases the brake pedal, resulting in lower levels of fuel consumption and emissions. You’d think stop/start would be rather simple, but it is very complex. For instance a special re-

inforced starter motor is needed. The normal life of a starter is about 50,00060,000 crank-overs. In the ISG Soul it has to be good for at least 350,000 starts because the car has be restarted so many more times. I tried the ISG on my way to the press launch site in northern Washington State. The system worked as expected and should result in a 10 per cent saving in fuel consumption in real life. Kia officials said the inclusion of ISG is actually the first step towards the eventual electrification of the brand. Stop/start is an essential part of hybrid and full electric cars. Also new for 2012 is a six-speed manual and sixspeed automatic transmission that drives the front wheels. Fuel consumption is rated at 7.4/5.6L/100 km city/highway for the 1.6-litre manual, 7.5/5.6L/100 km for the automatic and 7.0/5.4L/100 for the ISG. The 2.0-litre is rated at 7.9/5.8L/100 km city/ highway for the manual

and 7.9/5.5L/100 km for the automatic. With a starting price of $16,595, there are seven trim levels, the 1.6 ($16,595-$18,995), 1.6 ECO ($19,995), 2U ($18,995-$20,195), 4U ($20,495-$22,695), 4U Retro ($23,495), 4U Burner ($24,195), and 4U Luxury ($25,395). There’s a lot standard even on the base model including electric power steering (EPS), tilt and telescopic steering column, power windows, door locks and mirrors, heated front seats and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity. Also standard are front fog lights, auto-off headlamps, body-coloured door handles and outside mirrors, rear wiper/washer, variable intermittent windshield wipers, privacy glass on the hatch and rear side windows, four-wheel disc brakes and 15-inch steel wheels fitted with P195/65R15 tires. A long list of standard

driver and safety aids includes: front seat active headrests, dual front advanced airbags, and front seat-mounted and fulllength side curtain airbags. An Antilock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist System (BAS), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) also are standard, as are front and rear crumple zones, side-impact door beams and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). The suspension is unchanged with MacPherson struts, coil springs, rear mono-tube gas shock absorbers and stabilizer bar at the front. At the rear is a transverse torsion beam axle with trailing arms, coil springs and mono-tube shock absorbers for a smooth ride and minimum intrusion into the cargo space. A sport-tuned suspension is standard on 4U trims. For my money, I’d go for the 2.0-litre although the 1.6-litre has the benefit of gasoline direction injection and is very frugal. However, I found the 2.0-litre more gutsy and with the six-speed manual (as tested), there was as much power as I would normally want. It was also better at merging onto super highway traffic which is a big thing with me. But around town, the 1.6-litre with ISG is probably the way to go if your driving is primarily urban. Gasoline prices aren’t about to go down, so if you are leery of the extra cost of a hybrid or electric car, the Soul becomes an interesting alternative. In terms of the overall styling, Kia has kept exterior changes to a minimum with a larger grille and headlights with two rows of LED along the bottom, amber for turn signalling and clear for daytime running. At the rear there’s a switch to LEDs for the taillights while the interior gets a dashboard facelift. One thing that should be noted is the available UVO powered by Microsoft voice-activated infotainment system.

MOTORING â–ź XKR CONVERTIBLE

Jaguar offers up one purr-fectly gorgeous cat Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTED

I’d be a rich man if I had a Loonie for every time I’m asked, “So what would you buy if you could have any of the cars you’ve driven?� I’m not sure I’d be rich enough to buy the 2011 Jaguar XKR Convertible that is the subject of this week’s road test, but it certainly would be near the top of that list. From a practical point of view, it isn’t. The trunk is small, the back seat is virtually useless from a passenger standpoint, it guzzles premium gasoline and the price tag is north of the $120K mark. But putting all that aside, it’s a beautiful piece of machinery that I would have in driveway in a heartbeat— if I was among the lucky few who could afford such an ex-

pensive automobile. While the Jaguar brand has lost some of its cachet over the years, it is slowly creeping back with sleek and sexy cats like the XKR now prowling the streets. Hands down, this is one of the best looking cars you’ll ever see and I couldn’t agree more someone who said the XKR Convertible looks fast just standing still. How true! XK is the Coupe/Convertible line for Jaguar, which in 2011 is celebrating its 75th anniversary. The model range also includes an XKR Coupe and XK Coupe and Convertibles. Prices start at $96,500 for the XK Coupe, rising to $114,000 for the XKR Convertible. My tester had $5,800 in options, bringing the price as tested to $121,250 (including

$1,350 freight and PDI). That’s lot of coin, for sure, but few cars have the beauty and performance that the XKR Convertible wraps into one sweet package. The major different between the two trim levels in the XK line is the engine. Both use the same V8 engines, but the R series has a twin vortex (TVS) supercharger and twin water-cooled intercoolers that bump the horsepower up considerably. The base 5.0-litre V8 produces 385 hp and 380 lb/ft of torque, while the supercharger takes the R engine up to 510 hp and 461 lb/ft of torque. Jaguar says the XKR does the 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.9 seconds, while the base V8 does it in 5.5 seconds. Unlike many new convertibles on the market, the XKR comes only

with the traditional soft top rather than the retractable hard top that is now in vogue. And you don’t have to settle for just a black or white convertible top, there are seven colour choices available on the XKR. For those who haven’t driven a convertible lately, the ragtops today are light years ahead of what many of us remember from back in the ’60s and ’70s. The top on the XKR was one of the best I can ever remember for thickness and sound deadening qualities. The car was almost as quiet as the coupe version I drove earlier this model year. The top itself is easy to operate; simply push a button and voila, the top goes up or down as required in less than 18 seconds and at speeds of up to 32

CONTRIBUTED

THE 2011 JAGUAR XKR CONVERTIBLE is a 2+2 convertible with a soft top.

The XK lineup includes both the coupe and convertible with the R-designation featuring a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 producing 510 hp. km/h. When lowered, it disappears into the bodywork behind the rear seats under a smooth cover. This car also has a hidden rollover protection

system that deploys instantly if sensors identify a risk to help provide protection for the occupant. All XK models are constructed from a com-

bination of pressed, cast and extruded aluminum alloy components. This See Jaguar B5

MOTORING ▼ XKR CONERTIBLE

Driving luxury offered in the latest model from Jaguar Jaguar from B4 produces a body shell that is both strong and lightweight at the same time to help boost performance and safety. The XKR Convertible purrs on idle and at low speeds, but it’s ready and willing to pounce at any moment with power transferred through an adaptive six-speed automatic transmission. As befits its sporting nature, the XKR has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and Jaguar has specially tuned the exhaust with a deep, powerful sound. The car has a special acoustic filter at the rear of the engine, tuned to ‘tenor tC’ to feed intake sound into the cabin under hard acceleration. But in spite of the powerful sound and all the ponies available, this feline can be a docile kitten when driven at low speeds in town. Punch the throttle,

though, and it’s a different breed of cat altogether. The XKR becomes a grown-up Jaguar, racing gracefully and powerfully after its prey. But, it’s not just straight-line speed that sets the XKR apart. Thanks to its lightweight body structure, and technology called Adaptive Dynamics, the car is both nimble and agile. The active damping system optimizes handling agility and ride comfort by monitoring body movement 100 times per second and wheel position 500 times per second and automatically adjusts the damping rate as the suspension approaches the limits of its travel. It also helps control wheel hop on pot-holed or uneven pavement and works in tandem with Active Differential Control in the XKR to optimize available traction at each rear wheel, improving acceleration on lowgrip surfaces and enhan-

cing cornering ability. The cabin of the XKR convertible is pure luxury, just as one would expect from a premium brand like Jaguar. The seats, both heated and cooled, are unique to the XKR and covered in soft-grain leather. A variety of wood veneer trims are available for the cabin. Keyless entry and push button start/stop are standard fare on all XK models. Push the pulsing start

button and the engine purrs to life, while the chrome hockey-puck-like drive selector knob rises from the console. It lowers automatically when the stop button is pushed. There is a rear seat, but it is best used to complement the 201 litres of cargo room with the top down (331 litres with the top up) in the smallish rear trunk, which has room for maybe one piece of luggage, but little else. A seven-inch touch

screen handles the controls for most of the interior systems like climate, audio and navigation. I found it a bit finicky to operate and would prefer the old-style knobs and buttons that cars used to feature. Perhaps it’s an age thing. Those minor quibbles aside, if money was no object, this ‘purrfectly’ beautiful convertible would be on my wish list. It’s expensive, impractical and has way more power

than I’ll ever need. But on the other hand, it’s one of the most beautiful cars on the road and the fun quotient is over the top. I think I’ll head out right to buy another 6/49 ticket for Wednesday’s draw.

MOTORING â–ź YAMAHA STRYKER

A ‘stryking’ custom cruiser Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

There are always a few bikes that stand out from every year’s release of new models. And, more often than not, the standouts are built by Yamaha. A few years ago, one of the prime examples was the Raider, a heavyweight factory-custom cruiser that raised eyebrows and expectations with its radical-for-a-Japanese-bike styling statement. And for 2011, Yamaha unveiled a little brother to the Raider, the all-new Stryker, a smaller but still potent middleweight model, harnessing the V-Star’s 1304 cc V-Twin engine and following roughly the same factory custom formula – chopped fenders, stretched out front forks, big wheels and fat rear rubber. “A minimalist design with aggressive attitude� as Yamaha put it, and the Stryker seems a natural follow-up to the Raider, as well as a competitive response to the Honda Fury and Sabre siblings in the same weight class. The Stryker comes decked out in a choice of different colours and flavours but it looks particularly stryking (sorry about that) in a dark nightfighter kit with just a few chrome highlights here and there to contrast the blacked-out engine and bodywork. Man, I was psyched up for this bike. I had my black jacket, black jeans, black helmet. I was gonna look ba-a-ad. And, as usual, I had guessed wrong. I showed up at Yamaha Canada to find a brilliant blue model that somehow looked disturbingly cheerful as it sat waiting for me in the parking lot. There’s actually a $200 surcharge for the red and blue models with the extra bling, but I still lean towards the less subtle menace and dangerously handsome style of the dark model in Metallic

Black. But you gotta take what you can get. And it’s easy to learn to love the silky sheen of the Vivid Purplish Blue version. The paint and graphics combination has the colour depth and quality of a fine custom paint job. I swung a leg over the bike, or maybe I should say “into the bike� because, at 670 mm (26.4�), the seat position is the lowest in Yamaha’s lineup. Which is probably why the brochure makes a point of including photos of female riders mounted on the Stryker. Yamaha hopes that women will make up a good chunk of the Stryker’s market niche. But there is no fear

of girly-bike softness in the Stryker’s style. With its chopper-inspired looks, laid back layout and “fists in the wind� seating position, the Stryker has enough broad appeal for either sex. The engine erupts with a lovely growl snarling through the dual slash-cut pipes. Although the power of a bigger bike like the Raider might be thrilling, frankly, the whole “who’s got the biggest displacement?� power competition is getting kind of old, and the Stryker’s 1304 cc V-Twin pumps out more than enough oomph to satisfy most riders. See Yamaha B8

Yamaha from B7

Deduct the 38 kg (84 lb) weight saving of the Stryker’s middleweight mass (compared to the bigger Raider), and you also have a cruiser that feels more maneuverable and manageable, despite its stretched-out chopperlike proportions. Yes, you do still have to tip it into the corners aggressively but Yamaha engineers made a point of not sacrificing handling for styling, combining a 6 degree yoke offset angle combined with a 34 degree steering head for an easier-steering fork angle of 40 degrees. The one-piece seat is comfortable enough for not-too-long trips and, once you get the knack, it clips on and off easily for access to the hel-

met hooks. A simple, retro-styled analogue speedo sits high atop the handlebars, in-yer-face with digital readouts for the odo, dual tripmeters, fuel reserve tripmeter, fuel gauge, clock and assorted warning lights. There’s no tach, so it’s shift-by-sound only. The fifth gear is tall enough at highway velocity to negate the need for a six speed. And I would advise late shifts because this engine does not like to be lugged, the motor and belt drive lurching at low revs with the kind of driveline lash immediacy you’d expect more from a shaft drive system. The official fuel economy lab rating for the Stryker is 5.9L/100km. My real world averages, spread over four tanks of gas, were closer to 6.5L/100km. The

fuel warning light usually comes on at around 180 km and, based on those averages, the 15-litre tank gave me a range of about 230 km. Seeing in my notes that I filled the fuel tank four times, you can tell that I certainly enjoyed the Stryker. The bike has a rudimentary, elemental character and feel that’s perfectly in keeping with its chopper-designed image. We could debate styling points compared to Honda and Harley competitors in the same class, but what’s the point of arguing personal tastes and biases? So let’s agree that the 2011 Yamaha Stryker offers a unique alternative to custom cruising, a blend of modern engineering and retro custom style, competitively pow-

News from your community www.kelownacapnews.com

KENNEBUNKPORT, Me.—MercedesBenz Canada likes to describe the 2012 C-Class Coupe as a wolf in wolf’s clothing. Thereπs there nothing sheepish about it. Restyled and re-engineered, the C-Coupe makes a statement about what Mercedes-Benz believes a premium coupe is supposed to be. There are three versions of the 2012 C-Class Coupe, the C 250, the C 350 and the C 63 AMG with starting prices of $39,900, $49,200 and $66,900 respectively. The C 250 comes with a brand new turbocharged 1.8-litre, DOHC inline four-cylinder with direct fuel injection putting out 201 hp and 229 lb/ft of torque. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.2 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption rating of 8.2L/100 km. The C 350 has a 3.5-litre direction injection V6 with 302 hp and 273 lb/ft of torque. It has a 0-100 km/h time of 6.0 seconds and a combined fuel rating of 9.2L/100 km. Top speed on both is limited to 210 km/h.

Both use a new version of the 7G-tronic seven-speed automatic called the Plus that gives faster, smoother shifts with less noise while using less fuel. The third Coupe, the C 63 AMG, comes with a 6.2-litre DOHC V8 producing 451 hp and 443 lb/ft of torque for an acceleration time of just 4.4 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h. The C 63 gets the new AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed automatic that offers four electable drive modes from super sports with launch control to comfort/cruising setting. For another $6,000, you can get the AMG Performance Plus package which adds the same internals used on the SLS supercar like forged pistons and connecting rods. It adds 30 more hp and shaves a tenth of a second off the acceleration time. However, with a combined fuel rating of 13.6L/100 km, you wouldnπt be doing it very often. For the 2012, the CClass coupes feature standard AMG styling for all models, a new colour instrument cluster, standard Panoramic Sunroof, Dynamic Handling Package,

(standard on the C 350, optional on the C 250), power driverπs seat with memory and power steering column (partially powered passengerπs seat), all new NTG 4.5 Telematics, available Driver Assistance Package (consisting of Passive Blind Spot and Lane Keeping Assist Systems), available PARKTRONIC with Parking Guidance and standard ATTENTION ASSIST. Ride and handling uses what Mercedes-Benz calls AGILITY CONTROL that balances ride comfort and driving dynamics with selective damping system How it works is the dampers at each wheel are continuously adjusted to a harder or softer setting depending on road conditions. This provides a noticeably smoother ride, especially on poor road surfaces The Dynamic Handing Package is standard on C 350 and available as part of the optional Sport Package on the C 250. At the push of a button, vehicle characteristics can vary between a comfortable and sporty set-up. It lets the driver control continuously variable damping, speed-sensitive power steering with vari-

able centering, accelerator response and the speed of automatic gear changes. The coupes all have a more upright grille with a prominent three-pointed star in the centre. The C 250 and C 350 grilles have two horizontal bars while the C 63 has one. In addition to the standard AMG style rocker panels there is a sharp upward running character line that emphasizes the muscular rear fender. The C 63 AMG is also identifiable by the twin power domes on the hood and the four, big chrome exhaust pipes and subtle spoiler at the rear. On the inside, the dashboard console features aluminum-plated controls and there is optional ARTICO and leather upholstery in several colours The instrument cluster has been redesigned with standard colour information display and the steering wheel now has perforated side grips The individual split folding rear seats offer exceptional practicality and expand on the 450 litres of cargo area in the trunk. In addition to the regular coupes there is a special C 350 Edition1 Package limited to 50 examples in Canada.

Stay safe while driving in the rain By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC The rain is back! As drivers, we need to do what we can to adjust our driving to B.C.’s ever-changing weather conditions. When driving in the rain, motorists risk their tires losing traction with the asphalt and the ability to see clearly down the road. While most people know to slow down, many other helpful tips can keep you and other road users safer. 1. After a dry spell, use extreme caution. Roads are much slicker because of the engine oil and grease build-up. The

first rainfall makes the roads extremely slippery, and the first few hours are the most dangerous.

This gives you extra time to reach your destination, which allows you to stay at a suitable speed for the road conditions.

2. Slow down! The posted speed limit in B.C. is “under ideal conditions.” When it’s pouring down with rain and you can’t see properly...slow down!

5. USE YOUR HEADLIGHTS! Daytime running lights are great for traffic ahead of you to see you, however they do NOT turn on your rear lights. If you turn your headlights on, you are visible from the front and back of your car – very helpful to other drivers.

3. Brake earlier than you would normally. This helps YOU control the speed of traffic behind you. It will also increase the stopping distance between you and the cars in front of you. Reaction times might be slower during the rain due to visibility. Make sure you are driving defensively at all times. 4. Start your day earlier than normal.

6. In fog, use low-beam headlights. High beams bounce off the fog ahead of you, making it even more difficult to see where you’re going. If your car is equipped with fog lights, you may want those on as well. Hydroplaning is what happens when your

car skids over a pool of water that has formed on the road. Tires will literally float above the water so there is no traction whatsoever with the road. If your car is hydroplaning, DO NOT BRAKE! Carefully take your foot off the accelerator and look and steer in the direction you are wanting to go. In addition, ensure your tires are properly inflated as poorly inflated tires tend to hydroplane much more. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t ever have to drive in bad weather! However as drivers in a province such as British Columbia, it’s our responsibility to adjust the way we drive to make sure we can get to our destinations safely.

He is survived by his loving wife Louise,mother Doreen, brother Robert (Anne), sister Deborah (Ron), his 3 daughters Shelda, Shonna and Lacey and 6 grandchildren. Jack lived a full and active life surrounded by many friends. He had a passion for sports and in his later years, he especially enjoyed curling and golf. Jack had a smile that made him friends wherever he went and always had a kind word to say about everyone who touched his life. He lived life to the fullest, always looking forward and never back, and will be sadly missed by all those who knew him. Louise would like to wish that in lieu of flowers that you merely embrace and hug your loved ones for Jack. According to Jack’s wishes, there will be no funeral. A celebration of life will be held at a future date.

RIPPEL, JEAN With saddened hearts we regret to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Mom passed away peacefully on October 6th, 2011 at the age of 89 years.

She is survived by two sons, Leonard and William Rippel of Kelowna; two daughters, Elaine (Eric) Stotz of Lumby, Margaret Rippel of Kelowna, four grandchildren, Trevor (Denise) Komant of Kelowna, Becky (David) Habib of Kelowna, Jason (Leslie) Stotz of Kelowna, Heidi (Kevin) Couture of Vernon; seven great-grandchildren, Michael, Matthew, Selina and Sarah Habib of Kelowna, Brittney and Rayden Komant of Kelowna, Kai Couture of Vernon; one step greatgranddaughter Monique Habib of Calgary and one step great-great-grandson Logan Colpitts of Calgary; sisterin-law’s and brother-in-law’s Rose (Joe) Mahoney of Kelowna, Hilda (Paul) Hemich of Kelowna, Lea Rippel of Kelowna, Joe Rippel of Kelowna, Frank (Eva)Rippel of Telkwa, BC, Ed Rippel of Chase, BC, Joe Hordos of Prince George BC as well as many nieces and nephews.

Jean was born on April 18th, 1922 in Grand Forks BC where she spent her childhood years on the family farm. In May 1944 she met the love of her life John, who she married on December 29, 1945. They spent many happy years together until John’s passing in March of 2010. We believe they are so happy to be together again. Mom loved attending to her and vegetable garden and flowers.

NOTICE OF INTENT T11-103 Guisachan Park Landscape Maintenance Notice is hereby given by the City of Kelowna of its intent to contract with the Central Okanagan Heritage Society of Kelowna to provide landscape maintenance services at Guisachan Heritage Park. The contract will run from January 1st, 2012 to December 31st, 2012 at a cost of $51,060 (plus applicable taxes), with four possible one year contract extensions. This contract will be subject to final budget approvals. The City has chosen not to call for supplier proposals for the following reasons: 1. Costs submitted by this non-profit society are below market value and include a large component of volunteer time and donated materials. 2. The Parks Division is satisfied with the past performance of this qualified organization. 3. The botanical gardens in this park have great historical significance and contain many heritage plants. The park requires a much higher level of maintenance and care than other parks in the City. Suppliers wishing to object to this decision should contact the person identified below either by fax or email on or before October 27th, 2011 presenting specific reason for their objection. If justified, a suppliers meeting with City representatives will be called to receive supplier presentations regarding this contract. Supplier ability to offer product and/or services resulting in the same or better solutions at a lower cost during the same time frame will be the key criterion with regard to the supplier objections. For additional information please contact: Andy Brennan, City of Kelowna Purchasing Department, 1435 Water Street, Kelowna BC V1Y 1J4, Telephone 250-469-8530 or Fax 250-862-3392 or email purchasing@kelowna.ca kelowna.ca

Cooler temperature a sign for plants to move indoors Norman Winter CONTRIBUTOR

This week, there was a change in the air come morning—you know what I am talking about. This signals an ideal time to think about getting houseplants ready for a season ahead indoors. First, check to see if your plants need to be repotted. Water the plant well so that the soil sticks

together. Knock the plant gently out of the pot and inspect the root system. If you have a really tight root ball, you may need to step up to the next size container. If you need to repot the plants then select a good lightweight sterile soil mix available at any garden center or nursery. I prefer light mixes that have good water holding capacity yet are sure to drain.

The top cause of death of houseplants is overwatering, and many of the bargain potting soils can become heavy and hold too much water. Lighter soils may be a little more expensive, but they provide superior aeration, and water and nutrient holding capacity. If the container you presently have is as large as you want to handle this is certainly no issue. Trim

both the roots and plant. Lift the plant and prune the roots by onethird, then prune one-third off the top to match the root loss. If the plants have been outside, inspect them closely to be sure they are not harbouring insect pests. You will be quite embarrassed when you invite guests over for dinner and roaches or ants come

crawling out to partake of the roasted pheasant. Remove any diseased or dead foliage and pinch back growth to make a tidy appearance. If your plants have been outside on the porch or patio, they probably have received a tremendous amount of light compared to your indoor environment. Bring plants indoors gradually. Move them from the current location outside to a shadier spot for a few days to allow some time to acclimate to lower light conditions. Despite the fact that

we struggle with low light, watching you watering regimen will be just as crucial. We are so used to pouring on the water daily when they were outside that we forget to check the moisture level indoors. Since the plants aren’t growing as vigorously, if at all, they don’t need nearly as much water. Check the soil to see if it is actually dry before watering. You never want the indoor plant to set in soggy soil. When you do water, irrigate enough that it drains through the soil and out

the hole. Then by all means, let the soil dry before you water again. There is no set calendar for indoor watering, only when the plant needs it. Since the plant is not actively growing and we cut back on water, it stands to reason we shouldn’t fertilize nearly as often. Use a dilute fertilizer mixed with the water about every fifth watering. There is nothing that will make you enjoy your home more than healthy tropical plants indoors, so get them ready now for winter.

It goes without saying that times are changing. Women shouldn’t be sitting on the sidelines when it comes to their personal or family finances. In fact, basic financial and investment knowledge and a good understanding of family finances should be something every woman can confidently manage. Unexpected events, such as sudden illness, death or divorce, are an unfortunate reality, and it’s essential for women to be prepared and able to make quick decisions and take control. Even if you have a trusted family member that makes all of the household and financial

decisions, it’s essential for all women—whether married, single, a parent or grandparent—to be able to manage their own finances, and if necessary, take control of their family’s finances in times of crisis. If you’re among the 69 per cent of Canadian women that have savings and investments in their own name, you’re off to a good start. Lovett-Reid, offers the following tips for women to learn the basics of finances and investing, and start taking control of their financial future. • Do your research. Reading financial books, websites and speaking to family and friends with financial knowledge is often a great start. The information you gather will help you get a better sense of how to create a budget, manage your money and make informed decisions. • Be engaged. Don’t be afraid to take an active role in managing your personal or household finances. It’s important to discuss as a family—your investing strategy, where your different accounts and assets are held, and your future plans for your investments. And these discussions aren’t just for husbands and wives. It’s important to include any adult children so they’re prepared in case of parents’ unexpected accidents or illnesses. • Have a backup plan. Unemployment, loss of a loved one, illness and divorce are unexpected events that can happen to anyone at any given

time. Set up an emergency fund to that will help cover your fixed expenses such as your mortgage or rent payments. One place you can keep this money is in a Tax Free Savings Account, where you can contribute up to $5,000 annually. Make a list of how much you’ll need to cover your fixed expenses and budget an amount you can deposit regularly into this emergency savings account. • Create a detailed financial plan. When dealing with personal or household finances, it’s a good idea to determine what your investment strategy will be. Look for ways you can optimize your portfolio by assessing your risk tolerance, retirement plans and how much time you have for investing. Don’t be afraid to revisit your investment strategy from time to time. As you have changes in your life, take a few moments to make sure your financial plan is up-to-date and that you’re still on track to achieving your financial goals.

showcase W RENOVATION

Church evolves into a home Mary Breckenridge CONTRIBUTOR

Maybe it was youthful optimism that drew Kris and Marty Ryan to the dilapidated house on the eastern edge of Granger Township, Ohio. Then again, maybe it was divine guidance. The house had once been a country church, which was probably a good thing. The Ryans would need plenty of strength from above to get through the 20 years it took them to finish its renovation.

Now the former East Granger Disciple Church is a comfortable home for the Ryans and their four children, Katie, 23, Joe, 20, Kelsie, 18, and Molly, who turns 12 next week. It’s a testament to the Ryans’ vision and hard work, not to mention their willingness to ignore the naysayers. “Everybody kept saying, ‘Are you nuts?’” Kris Ryan recalled with a laugh. The church, built in 1830 and closed in 1925, had already been converted to living quarters

when the Ryans happened upon it while they were trying to find another house in the area that was for rent. But it was hardly their dream home. The place was vacant and overgrown, the first floor was closed in by an oppressively low ceiling, and the house didn’t even have indoor plumbing. One look at the old structural timbers, though, and the Ryans were hooked. They bought the house in 1986 and spent the first year living with her moth-

er in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, while they worked on the building, just to get it to the point where it was habitable. The bank required a construction plan before it would approve a loan, so Marty Ryan drew one up even though he had no real construction experience. “We basically walked around and he’d say, ‘OK, how wide do you want this hallway?’” his wife remembered. Marty Ryan, a chemistry teacher at Cloverleaf High School, did most of

the work during summer vacations. They’d save or borrow to pay for each stage as they went along, and they’d put up temporary walls to block off the unfinished areas so they didn’t have to live with a constant reminder of the mess. Except for the electricity and plumbing and the construction of a garage, the couple did all the work themselves with help from friends and family members. They ripped down old horsehair plaster. They tore off old roofing. Marty Ryan likes to remind his wife that he’s touched every square inch of the place. The Ryans added a second floor, turned part of the attic level into a bedroom and created a gathering area on the first floor with a kitchen, family room, dining room and even a space for Kris Ryan’s in-home day care business. The last room, their daughters’ second-floor bedroom, was finished in the fall of 2006. In the process they were able to save the old lap siding, which they discovered hidden under a layer of gray shingles. They also preserved an old wainscot in parts of the house, as well as

the church’s original entry hall with its two doorways, supposedly one for men and the other for women. Otherwise, little remains of what had been the church, save the chestnut structural timbers. The Ryans preserved them and exposed them where they could, even raising the family room ceiling 26 feet to the roof so the rough-hewn posts and beams would be visible. The beams are notched to accept framing members that once supported the church’s ceiling. The old stained glass windows were all broken, but the Ryans saved one that they intend to have refurbished someday. One of their favorite remnants from the old church is its cemetery, which lies just beyond their backyard and is now maintained by the township. Kris Ryan calls it “my tranquility center.” “I just find so much peace walking through there,” she said. “I really feel that it watches over us.” She feels a spiritual presence inside the house, as well. Family members have heard voices and seen apparitions, including a figure of a man that used to

frighten her children but hasn’t been seen since the Ryans got rid of a couple of pieces of furniture they believe his spirit may have been attached to. Kris Ryan’s experience, on the other hand, has been more positive. She’s seen a figure of a girl in the house, whom she believes is one of the schoolchildren pictured in a photo of the church’s front porch. To her, the presence is comforting. She thinks that good feeling has to do with the many prayers that have been lifted in the building and the good energy that remains from its history. “I’m sure this is one of the happiest places to be,” she said. That joy is one of the reasons the Ryans love the house. They’ve been especially heartened by the people who have stopped by over the years to remark on their work, share their memories of the house and thank them for preserving it. Kris Ryan isn’t sure she would do it again, but she doesn’t regret the decision. “I feel very proud,” she said. “…You know what? I really feel this is my home.”
