Car surfing leads to tragedy Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
One day before his 25th birthday, Jody Rud made the fatal decision to “car surf” on his Pontiac Sunfire while his friend took the wheel. “This is an incredibly dangerous stunt that involves standing on the roof of a moving vehicle without any safety equipment or attachment to the vehicle,” explained Const. Steve Holmes, Monday. Shortly after 1 a.m., June 11, the 26-year-old driver lost control, and the car rolled down an embankment 10 kilometres up Bear Creek Main Road, throwing Rud from the roof.

Council scared off sculpture by public art installation cost Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
They say don’t look a gift horse in the mouth but herons, apparently, are a different story.

Kelowna city council opted out of a chance to acquire a free Jock Hidebrand sculpture assessed at $175,000 Monday afternoon, deferring to the judgement of their public
art committee. The committee, earlier, decided the cost associated with installing and maintaining the heron sculpture was too high. Also the piece didn’t
fit their criteria of public art because it was constructed for the Centuria development on Gordon and Bernard Avenue and not “conceived with a certain area in mind.”
Their stance was taken into account, but city staff still recommended politicians approve taking on the statue which would be made available by the building’s developer in ex-
change for a tax receipt. They also proposed that it should be funded through the committee’s budget, regardless of their negative evaluation. That, in the end, didn’t
sit well with the bulk of councillors. Coun. Luke Stack said it troubled him greatly that the city has a public art See Cost A8

YouTube moment not very funny
Tragedy from A2 Rud, who had made a name for himself during his years at UBC Okanagan for doing everything from organizing Remembrance Day ceremonies to working on homelessness initiatives, died at the
scene as a result of his injuries. There was no evidence suggesting the use or influence or drugs or alcohol, but his long-time friend, who was in the city from Estevan, Sask., was arrested at the scene. Police are recom-
mending charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and criminal negligence causing death, said Holmes. He noted the friend was released from custody on a promise to appear for a court date in December. “He faces imprison-
ment,” noted Holmes, adding that although Rud may have chosen to get on the roof of the car himself, it’s his friend’s decision to drive that are cause for police to recommend criminal charges. That said, the story of a young man dying, fol-
lowing the decision to take on an adrenaline-fuelled risk, sounds all too familiar to Scott Walker, whose son died two days after his 21st birthday from a skateboarding accident. Since then he’s taken to promoting SmartRisk, a program that advocates

for the use of helmets and due care and attention when the temptation to take on high risk activities is overwhelming. And, while that’s one way to deal with the risks inherent to a more physically adept and aggressive generation, he’s not sure if it can counter the culture growing around taking bolder risks. “YouTube and all these things glorify these risky behaviours,” he said. “When I was young, your friends might have known you’d done something, but now someone takes a picture and the world knows. Kids are cheering it on and not even thinking of consequences.” In fact, simply typing the words “car-surfing” into YouTube yields more than 5,000 videos of various attempts at the stunt, which is growing in popularity and taking more casualties along the way. “We all did crazy things, and we’re fortunate we can get through it,” he said, adding he hopes more young people will just minimize the chance of injury, not stop taking risks entirely.

Rutland brawl erupts
Fruit growers appeal for public’s support Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER
While new B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s focus has been on families, that message isn’t resonating with local fruit growers. Joe Sardinha, president of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, says local orchardists have families too—and they’re hurting right now. Sardinha is urging consumers to be farm families’ allies and purchase locally-grown products when they shop for food for their families. It’s part of a promotion the BCFGA has launched to remind the general public of what makes this valley’s economy tick, and what it might look like without agriculture. Significant losses in the past three years have left apple growers in a very difficult position. Many have mortgages on their orchards, but with global apple prices so low, they’re not making enough income to keep up the payments. Sardinha points out there are 15 orchards
up for sale in Kelowna alone right now, and two of those are bank-forced sales as a result of losses in the marketplace and an inability to meet their mortgage commitments. “Basically, it’s a lack of income,” he said. Newcomers to the industry are generally in the worst situation because they hold larger mortgages, he added. He said he knows of one grower who is looking at cashing in his RRSPs to keep his farm operating, even though that will leave him without a pension income in the coming years. “It’s negative net farming income,” said Sardinha. As well, those who have given up farming and leased out the orchard, are finding those lessees are simply dropping the leases because they’re not making any money and that leaves them with the farm again. In the case of absentee owners, that means the orchard could become derelict. In the coming weeks, growers will be appealing to the community to
support them by both purchasing local fruit, and by lobbying the provincial government to help develop solutions to the recent challenges faced by the orchard industry. That campaign includes a Facebook page called the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association where users can learn more about agriculture and the tree fruit industry, and provide feedback. Growers are locked into an Agricultural Land Reserve which they are required to maintain for the benefit of all, yet they are not currently making a living doing so, he pointed out. Sardinha said they are in discussions with the province for long-term support for the industry, which he estimates has an economic impact of $300 million in the province, not including that of SunRype Products Ltd. Those talks are now into Phase II, with meetings scheduled for next involving board members from the BCFGA and the B.C. Tree Fruit Co-operative, and Agriculture Min-

APPLE TREES are being removed around the Okanagan because growers are unable to make an income growing them. Orchardists are currently appealing to consumers to support them by making sure they buy B.C. fruit for their families. ister Don McRae, said Sardinha. He said his association will request assistance with production insurance as well as with orchard replant or deer fencing.
During Phase I, industry managers met with the assistant deputy ministers for background on the industry’s competitive position and to establish a starting point. “The past
three years has left the industry at serious risk,” said Sardinha. There are an estimated 850 growers remaining in the industry. firstname.lastname@example.org
Agricultural Water Reserve status under discussion Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER
As long as land in B.C. is locked into an agricultural reserve, any change in the provincial Water Act must ensure there is water reserved to make that farmland viable to grow food, say farmers. So, they are drafting a series of principles on which an Agricultural Water Reserve should be based, to present to government in its drafting of a new Water Act. And, the Okanagan
G N I CH RI EN
Water Stewardship Council, a technical committee that makes recommendations to the Okanagan Basin Water Board, has a sub-committee discussing such a reserve and how it might impact this valley. At last week’s meeting of the OWSC, vice-chairman Ted van der Gulik reported on their discussion, including a description of the draft principles the B.C. Agriculture Council is putting together to present to government as part of the discussion around a new Water Act.
He said the principles are based on taking such priority factors as drinking water and water for fish and habitat into consideration first. Included would be agricultural lands that are currently irrigated and those currently licensed, as well as where the licences are with purveyors; groundwater; Agricultural Land Reserve lands that are in close proximity to water; and First Nations arable lands. Since water is required to grow food, an assured,
safe, secure, affordable source of water is at the foundation of farming, he noted. Watershed management plans should be watershed based and a reserve should be based on projected needs using science, with an allowance for climate change and changing demographics. Efficiencies achieved should remain in the reserve and groundwater should be included. The province should continue to be the agency for allocations and licensing, although planning
should be local. Council members questioned whether ecosystem needs were adequately considered in the draft principles and who pays for water to satisfy the needs of fish. Water stewardship director for the OBWB, Nelson Jatel, emphasized that environmental needs and drinking water and sanitation would have to be considered top priorities. But he noted the subcommittee’s technical exercise regarding water for agriculture will likely
move on to a model of the impact these principles would have on this basin, or on a particular utility’s area within the basin, using the water supply and demand study completed last year. Following that modelling, a position paper for the water board will be written, approved by the stewardship council and forwarded to the board, which is made up of board members from each of the regional districts in the basin. “It’s important to get it right,” he said.
Pent up aggression between two families prompted the Rutland rumble that sent one man to the intensive care unit Sunday, say Kelowna Mounties. At around 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 12, police were called to the intersection of Gibson and McCurdy roads after reports that a local 51-yearold man was beaten with a baseball bat, said Const. Steve Holmes. The beating victim was taken to Kelowna General Hospital to get help with injuries sustained during the skirmish. “An investigation revealed that this was not a random incident and that it likely involved two groups who are angry and hostile with one another,” said Holmes, adding gang activity has been ruled out at this time. There are currently no estimates on how many people were involved. Nor do police know the cause of the feud although, at its roots, are two unnamed families at odds with one another. Police also believe a time and place was scheduled for the conflict. Much of what’s known to police at the moment, Holmes pointed out, has come from the victim and those who were with him when police and ambulance arrived. The man was taken to Kelowna General Hospital’s intensive care unit for treatment. Anyone who may have seen this incident is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or crimestoppers.net.

that B.C. Housing is the group in the best position to take on this task, and that their mission statement is virtually identical to the purposes of the society. â€œThe property transfer will provide more financial options to help maintain and operate the current units as well as undertake a planning exercise to one day redevelop the site.â€? Residents have been informed of the ownership transfer and have been assured they will have an affordable home today and in the future. With the transfer of ownership under an agreement between Pleasantvale Homes Society, B.C. Housing and the City of Kelowna, new opportunities are now available to begin developing longrange plans to continue providing affordable housing on this property. This planning process is expected to take a number of years, and will involve public input. Through the Pleasantvale Homes Society, the Rotary Club of Kelowna has been proud to offer affordable housing for seniors for more than 50 years. The property transfer ensures this tradition will continue well into the future.

Flicka 3 ▼ KELOWNA to shoot City seeks out proposals for in the downtown boating facility Okanagan The Okanagan will play host to a major film production this summer with country music singer Clint Black cast in a starring role. Okanagan Film Commissioner Jon Summerland says 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will shoot the movie Flicka 3 starting in September. Summerland says the movie will have a fiveweek production schedule with specific filming ocations yet to be decided. Okanagan Film Commission chairman John Trainor credits Summerland with landing the film, which had originally been scheduled to shoot in Manitoba. While Manitoba has better tax incentives, Trainor says Summerland was able to overcome that with his connection to the producers, the great crew base in the Okanagan and our ability to offer low production costs. For his part, Summerland said Kelowna resident Elizabeth Scherberger, an assistant director on the project, first approached him about the possibility of the film moving to the Okanagan.
The boat fuelling station in Kerry Park will remain closed as the city issues a Request for Proposals this summer for a new on-water marina for the downtown waterfront. A fuel spill on the beach in Kerry Park last summer required immediate mop-up and repair efforts, with more work at the site planned this year. City staff have been working with an environmental consultant to develop a cleanup plan for the remaining fuel in the soil at Kerry Park. In preparation for this work, staff instructed the operator of the refueling station to remove his underground fuel storage tank. The City of Kelowna had a licence of occupation in 2002 with the numbered company 381713 BC Ltd. for the operation of a Marina Concession at Queensway Avenue, commonly known as the Kelowna Marina. The licence had been renewed on a year-to-year basis due to the uncertainty of the development along Kelowna’s waterfront. The licence was not renewed for
2011 and as a result there will be no fuel or boat rentals at the Kerry Park location. In discussions about how to proceed with a new boating facility, Kelowna city council has expressed a desire for improved amenities along the downtown waterfront. These include improved quality of on-water structures, public day moorage, boat fuel sales in a more environmentally sensitive and technologically advanced manner, and boat rentals To achieve council’s objectives, city staff will issue a Request for Proposals this summer that will detail the requirements for a new on-water marina. If a suitable proposal is made and accepted, the city will purchase and install an underground fuel storage tank with appropriate leak detection systems. In September, the city will temporarily close the north end of Kerry Park to complete remaining soil remediation that is required. On-water fuel sales are available at Shelter Bay Marina on the southwest side of the bridge or at the Eldorado Marina on Lakeshore Road.

Graeme James, Andre Blanleil and Charlie Hodge each articulated their individual disagreement with the committee’s decision on how the art fit into the overall collection. Hodge pointed out the committee also shouldn’t feel insulted by a difference of opinion, but he couldn’t see his way to approving such a high expenditure. “I would love us to have this piece of art work, but I can’t for the life of me comprehend why it would take $45,000 to $65,000 to install it,” Hodge said. In the end, councillors decided to not pursue the piece, but not before bandying about the idea of taking funding areas other
than the committee’s allotment. That also failed to gain consensus. As for the artist himself, Hildebrand said he was disappointed to hear the sculpture he made years ago won’t be installed in his hometown, especially considering it’s been sitting in storage. But, he’s not surprised by the public art committee’s decision. “I think the public art committee has some internal difficulties with some of these things,” said Hildebrand, noting the heron theme would be applicable to numerous spots within the city. “I think that they have become so bureaucratic in many ways, that they’ve tied themselves up in rather small knots.” That said, Kelowna’s loss will likely be West Kelowna’s gain, which Hildebrand said was fitting considering he once lived there, too.

Travel Advisory Update
Temporary Zopkios Brake Check Closure The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure would like to advise the public that due to the Zopkios Brake Check Reconstruction Project, the Zopkios Brake Check on the Coquihalla Highway will be temporarily closed. The closure begins on June 15, 2011 and continues until September 2011. A temporary brake check will be set up nine kilometres north of the Zopkios site at Coquihalla Lakes rest room area. All southbound commercial vehicle traffic exceeding 5,500 kgs. will be required to stop at the temporary location. This site has limited space, so truck operators are asked to conduct their brake check as quickly as possible to allow room for the next vehicle. During the brake check closure there will also be a temporary speed zone for southbound traffic adjacent to the Zopkios Brake Check location. Commercial vehicles will be required to slow to 50 km/h, and all other traffic will be required to slow to 80 km/h from north of the southbound exit into Zopkios to past the onramp from Zopkios part-way down Snowshed Hill. Your patience during this work is appreciated.

Brown will start her new job Sept. 6. In her role with IH, Brown will work closely with doctors and staff at Kelowna General Hospital and Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops to deliver a seamless tertiary service for the two major hospitals in the southern Interior. In addition, she will also play a key role in the expansion of Interior Health’s cardiac program and the development of the UBC medical school. Brown’s career in health-care operations has spanned 28 years in both Canada and the United Kingdom. Most recently she worked for the Fraser Health Authority as executive director of medicine for Fraser Health’s 12 hospitals. In addition, she also oversaw health-care operations at the Peace Arch Hospital and for the White Rock community. “I am very pleased that Susan has accepted this role with Interior Health,” said IH chief executive officer Dr. Rober Halpenny. “Her experience in health-care operations, combined with a passion for collaborative leadership and building strong stakeholder partnerships will make her a welcome addition to the Interior Health.”

Avoiding the West Nile virus Interior Health is reminding local residents to take extra precautions against mosquito bites this summer. West Nile virus, a disease that is spread from infected birds to humans through mosquito bites, has been present in B.C. since 2009. West Nile virus (WNv) was first detected in B.C. in the South Okanagan during the summer of 2009 with the identification of WNv positive mosquitoes and two locally acquired human cases. In 2010, WNv positive crows and one human case were identified further north, in Kelowna. Several cases in IH residents also occur most summers due to travel to nearby provinces or states with higher levels of WNv mosquito activity. “If you have been bitten by a mosquito, you do not have to be tested for WNv,” said Jennifer Jeyes, communicable disease specialist with Interior Health. “Most people who become infected with the virus will have no symptoms or ill effects at all. “About 20 per cent of infected people may experience mild to severe flulike symptoms and less than one per cent of people who are bitten by an infected mosquito will get severely ill. “The elderly and people with compromised immune systems are generally more at risk of developing a severe illness in response to WNv exposure.” If you have mild health symptoms that you think might be from the West Nile virus, you should get plenty of rest, drink fluids, and avoid alcohol. If your symptoms persist and seem to be getting more severe, call your doctor. While the current prevalence of WNv is relatively low in mosquitoes across the IH region, it is important for all residents, regardless of where they live, to take mosquito bite precautions to reduce the chances of infection.
The best protection against West Nile virus is to avoid mosquito bites and reduce mosquito breeding areas. Here are some things you can do to protect yourself from West Nile virus: • Use mosquito repellent. Apply mosquito repellent to areas of exposed skin. Check the product label for instructions on proper use. Repellents containing DEET are safe if the label precautions are followed. DEET-free products are available, but may not provide as longlasting protection. View the HealthFile web site on DEET for guidelines on how frequently you should apply repellent. •Wear protective clothing. Avoid dark clothing, as it tends to attract mosquitoes. If you are in an area with lots of mosquitoes, wear loose fitting, full-length pants and a long-sleeved shirt to keep mosquitoes from biting.
Mosquitoes that can carry WNv are most active at dusk and at dawn. Avoid using floral fragrances such as perfumes, soaps, hair care products and lotions. • Install mosquito screens on windows. Consider staying indoors between dusk and dawn and in the early evening. • Prevent mosquito breeding around your home. It doesn’t take much time or water for mosquitoes to develop from eggs into adults. Anything that can hold water can be a mosquito breeding area. Identify and remove potential breeding areas on your property—empty saucers under flowerpots; change water in bird baths twice a week; unclog rain gutters; drain tarps, tires, and other debris where rain water may collect; and install a pump in ornamental ponds or stock them with fish. Stagnant backyard pools can be a big

Some hope for Senate reform
here is some irony that as Liberal MLA John Les introduced a bill that might lead to the election of Senators in B.C., Prime Minister Stephen Harper was appointing new members to the upper house. Ironic because it was the Reform Party—precursor to the current Conservatives—who brought the idea of substantial Senate reform closer to reality than ever before. It was, in fact, a key part of the Reform platform: A Senate
that was equal, elected, and effective. Although that concept of the “Triple E” Senate has since been tempered by political realities (like reopening the constitutional debate), reform remains a goal for many politicians. Of course, what to do with the Senate has been a Canadian pastime for decades. Many, including the opposition NDP see little use for this “house of sober, second thought” and would rather see it abolished. Other see it as a chance to
improve the democratic process in Canada. John Les is one of those. “I think by far the majority of people would prefer to elect a Senate,” Les says. He’s right. For too long the Canadian Senate has had all the appearance of a private club, where its promise of lifetime membership was seen as the ultimate reward for party fidelity. It has been political tradition for the Prime Minister of the day to stock the Senate with selections who were sympathetic to the governing party’s views.
Prime Minster Harper faced that same accusation when he recently appointed three new members to Senate – all Conservative candidates who were defeated in the recent federal election. Still, there is hope. It is expected that the Conservatives will introduce changes that will give provinces greater say over how candidates are chosen. The Private Member’s Bill introduced by MLA Les, serves as an important step toward that necessary reform.

At That’s why it’s so incredulous to least that’s what we hope, right? see idiot smokers behind the wheel But with that warm weather of cars and trucks on our local roads comes the risk of fire and, as we have continuing to use the great outdoors

These morons have no compunction about flicking burning cigarette butts out the windows of their vehicles as they drive on their merry way, speeding away from any problem they leave behind because of their stupidity. It’s as if they don’t give a second thought to the potential damage they are doing. Take a drive around this city and it won’t be long until you see the type of people I mean. Young, old, male or female—they come in all shapes and sizes but have one thing in common, as my mother likes to say, they don’t have the sense they were born with.
Stupid, stupid, stupid. In recent days, I have seen plenty of culprits guilty of such idiotic and dangerous behaviour. Earlier this week, I was stopped at the light at Enterprise and Spall and a young woman driving ahead of me did it. On the weekend, it was an older man in a truck on Benvoulin. Last week an elderly lady on Harvey. It seems nature’s way of skipping smart genes in some people does not play favourites. Health issues aside—if a person wants to smoke and they are not polluting someone else’s air, I say let them—when it comes to the potential to start roadside fires that will affect
us all, it’s a different story. After all, if a driver discards a lit cigarette butt out the window on a busy downtown street, are they any more likely not to do so on a rural road? And, as for the argument that some people stub out their cigarettes before tossing them out the window, is that form of litter any better? With all the recent talk of potential flooding, the threat of fire may not be top of mind. But the heat should be placed on these inconsiderate smokers.

Service clubs role in schools appreciated To the editor: Re: Plaque request by service club troubling for some trustees, June 10 Capital News. First, I want to thank the Capital News for sending a reporter to school board meetings—other media outlets do so very rarely. Secondly, I often feel it is best not to respond to newspaper articles as it only raises the issue again and can lead to more confusion. However, in this case, I feel compelled to
respond to the above mentioned article. The article is mostly correct, but some of the comments are reported out of the sequence in which they were made, and at least one attributed to me is incorrect. When I said: “I don’t see how there was no pressure put on us. We were told, ‘either you suspend the policy or you won’t get the money,’” I was responding to Trustee Wayne Horning’s comment, when he said “there
is no pressure,” noting the club had given the district three options—to put up the plaque and exempt the donation from the policy, to amend the policy or to turn down the funds. I also said that the Rotary Club was perfectly within their rights to say what their rules are when they make donations, but that we should not suspend our policy in order to comply with their rules. At no time did I say that I “was also offended by the brazen attitude of the
club.” In the past I have questioned the practice of not allowing service clubs to be recognized in our schools. However, I believe that the way to deal with this is to review our policy, not suspend it on a one-time basis for one particular club. As far as Rotary Clubs are concerned, I have always appreciated the support that they have given to our schools. This support includes the One-toOne Reading Program,
the Rotary Public Speaking Competitions, scholarships and leadership opportunities. I do hope that the newspaper article has not given Rotarians and the public in general, the wrong impression about my views on service clubs and all that they give and provide to our schools and our communities.

Kids education is not a sellable commodity To the editor: Plaque Request Troubling for Some Trustees, June 10 Capital News. There are times when there is a debatable issue and one needs to say “stop,” slow down the bus and let’s consider the consequences of sponsorship changes before a foothold is gained in our school district. Unfortunately, we continue to elect governments that claim schools can do more with less while failing to establish policies that limit corporate involvement, putting school communities in ethically impossible positions. Funding programs through corporate advertising and sponsorship reinforces the idea that providing a good education for every child is a question of charity rather than a fundamental responsibility of government. I continue to urge School District 23 to uphold its policy on corporate advertising and sponsorship, including service clubs within that policy, and to continue to press the Ministry of Education to uphold its responsibility to adequately fund public education. Consideration of corporate sponsorship,
as it relates to service clubs, opens a Pandora’s box. Issues similar to receiving funding from private corporations would exist and once again the questions will be just what is for sale, who will determine the curriculum, where will the line be drawn and how altruistic is the financial contribution? No corporation or service club should receive exclusive access to any school or to the district temporarily or indefinitely; all policies and agreements should meet the existing guidelines of Policy 735. Providing an exemption for any particular service club is unreasonable and questions the integrity of SD 23 Board of Education, leaving one to ask what is the particular amount the Board of Education can be ‘bought’ for? SD 23 should continue to guard against commercial partnerships, from corporate or community service groups, that require school districts to advertise as a condition for receiving funds, products, materials or equipment. Philanthropy should not hinge on conditions. It is important to continue to say “stop”— that we deny corporations/service clubs the
advantage of an under-funded school district to polish their corporate image and gain exposure that would ordinarily cost a bundle in purchased advertising, a particular challenge for community-based service clubs. It is important to hold the line and deny corporations/ service clubs access to schools where they can cultivate a market of young consumers. Branding of young minds is unacceptable. I recognize that some companies and many service clubs want to be responsible corporate citizens and put money back into the community, but we must also set clear parameters so students do not become prey to the marketplace. The price of such corporate philanthropy, whether from a corporation, a service club, a faith group or an NGO, is too high. A school shouldn’t be characterized by the brands, corporations, service clubs, or individuals that sponsor it, but rather by the education it serves. As (child development author) Barbara Coloroso simply says: “Kids are worth it.” Lois Beischer, Westbank

Probably not because, as I said, this segment of economy is invisible, retains very little political power and frankly no one cares. There is no glamour, no sensationalism, no story. Already besieged by complaints from Canadian customers that have to pay $12 to ship a bubble envelope that they can ship anywhere in the US, including Hawaii, for $4, we are saddled with the higher Canadian dollar plus the world’s most complex tax structure HST, GST, BST. In Canada, if I purchase a $10 item on eBay from an American seller, I enjoy $10 shipping, and no tax. If I purchase the same item from a Can-
adian seller I pay $15 shipping plus HST. I am in a country not at war, I have reasonably clean air and I enjoy free health care, right? Grocery stores that formerly paid fair wages have rid themselves of the high paid staff and, as with most retailers across the country, have replaced their workforce with parttime, casual, no benefits, lower wage staff. Everytime you purchase a $5 T-shirt at a retailer this year remember your $5 has to cover the manufacture, distribution and materials of that shirt. How much do you think goes to the worker that made it? We all want it cheaper, we all want more left over for toys, or better food, or better colleges, or more, more, more.

The ship was hoisted across the road and gently lowered into the lake, before being towed over to new moorage on the Westside, where construction will continue. The scaled replica is based on 17th century pirate ship galleons. It will ultimately feature three masts, a raised forecastle and a raised captain’s deck above the aft cabin. Other features Mayzes plans to add include a 20-square-foot glass bottom viewing windows along with the traditional brass and varnished finishings that were typical of vessels that plied the oceans during the 17th century. Mayzes will carry out those finishing touches, he says, with an eye to maintaining authenticity mixed with fun and education for all those who sail on her. In a nod to the pirate sailing tradition of the past, Mayzes says he hopes not to have to resort “to the age old practice of trolling local watering holes and press gang unsuspecting patrons into the Queens Service.” He is looking to find able-bodied sea men and women, craftspersons and landlubbers alike to sign on for a summer sailing adventure on Okanagan Lake, starting next summer.

SPORTS ▼ GRIDIRON
Coach McCall back in the game with RSS football Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
Being relieved of his head coaching duties with the Okanagan Sun was admittedly one of the more trying experiences Peter McCall has ever faced. Still, the 40-year-old high school teacher didn’t have to look far for support in the days, weeks and months following his dismissal. The immediate reaction from staff and students at Rutland Senior Secondary was confirmation for McCall that his work with young people is valued and appreciated, both in the classroom and on the football field— even if the local junior team no longer required his services. “When they heard this happened, the (RSS) student body and staff got together and bought me a $1,500 mountain bike and presented it to me by surprise in class one day,” said McCall. “I knew they appreciated me, but that was way over the top, I was literally moved to tears. When it all hap-
pened, they lined the hallways and clapped for me. “I was just so humbled by it all,” he continued. “It really hit home how much they care and appreciate what I’m doing. I can’t say how much I appreciate the support they’ve shown me, too.” It’s been four months since the Sun’s board of directors chose to relieve McCall of his coaching responsibilities, citing his shortcomings in the area of recruiting. The initial shock of the dismissal now in the past, McCall continues to do his best to put it all in perspective. “I don’t ever want to sound bitter, but I still question the decision,” said McCall. “It was a management-level decision, and I think they’re a little confused about what they’re trying to accomplish. “I thought that we were going in a good direction so I’m still upset about that,” said McCall who went 16-7 in two seasons as a BCFC head coach, “but I know so many of those kids on that

team and would never tell them not to play for the Sun. I’m hoping they’ll do well in their football careers. “God’s honest truth, there’s been a lot of soul searching and it’s been a tough pill to swallow. But it’s time to leave it behind.” And while McCall admits he is still carrying a certain degree of emotional baggage from the events of mid-February he insists he has, for the most part, moved on. Returning to his coaching roots, McCall is back on the gridiron at Rutland Secondary. He served as the Voodoos head coach from 2001 through 2008, but this time around will assume a lesser role, working as an assistant to head coach Shane Sommerfeld. In the end, the lure of coaching was simply too much for McCall to suppress. “When football started up in the spring, the kids were asking if I was going to be helping out and be involved,” said Mc-
Call who will work with the Voodoos as an offensive assistant. “The practises are happening right outside my window, and I mean I just couldn’t stay away. This is my passion and my love is working with these Rutland kids. I just wouldn’t feel right if wasn’t helping out.” And it’s safe to say no one is more excited to have McCall back with the Voodoos than Shane Sommerfeld. “It’s great having Pete back, he offers a dynamic you just can’t get from anybody,” said Sommerfeld, who coached with the Sun for eight seasons. “He takes a lot off my plate, and with (assistant) Jason Farnsworth, I think it gives us a better coaching staff than most junior teams have.” In addition to combining their coaching talents and sharing ideas on the football field, Sommerfeld has also served as a sounding board for McCall since the firing. “I really felt for Peter, I think it was pretty bad the way the whole thing went down,” Sommerfeld
said. “Having said that, I was never more happy to see someone get fired,” he joked. “Now he’s with me in our program, and our football program’s going to be better.” If there are other upsides to his dismissal from the Sun, McCall said his summer should be mostly stress-free for the first time in years. He also has more time to spend with his family— wife Tara and their two young daughters, aged 3 1/2 and 1 1/2. “The stress is gone, there was a lot of anxiety working two jobs and having some people whose ideas you didn’t agree with and it would wear on you after a while,” McCall said. “In some ways it’s a huge relief. There’s more free time in my life, it’s filled up quick with my family and training and school work here. It’s a nice balance and at the end of the day I’m not stressed out. I can enjoy quality time with my kids.” whenderson @kelownacapnews.com
Junior Raiders poised to clinch 1st in TOJ Lacrosse League regular season games. But plain and simple, a win over the ‘Rocks would get the job done. “With four games to go we control our own destiny,” said Raiders coach Travis Wray. “Getting first place has been our goal all year and it’s in our hands,” he said. Kelowna is coming off an 11-2 drubbing of the South Okanagan Flames.
Brendan Urban scored four times to lead the Raiders attack, while Sheldon McDonald had a pair. Tyler French, Andrew McMillan, Scott Renner, Iain Hart and Lucas Cahill added singles. Cody Taschuk replaced Tanner Belsham in the Kelowna net after Belsham received an early misconduct penalty.

awarded a game star for his two-goal performance and solid defensive play. The Raiders failed to capitalize on power play advantages and, at times, were unable to effectively deliver their signature fast and accurate passing game in the offensive zone. Overall, Kelowna’s defensive game was led by goalie Graham Cousins who kept the score close all evening. The Raiders are 3-4 on the season.

Falcons off to slow start Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
It wasn’t the kind of start head coach Al Cantwell had envisioned for his Kelowna Falcons. Thankfully, the West Coast League season is less than two weeks old. After seven straight losses to open the campaign, the Falcons finally broke through on Sunday Elks Stadium with a 3-0 shutout of the Langley Blaze in a non-league game. Kelowna was still searching for its first WCL win on Tuesday as they took on the Bluejackets in Kitsap. A final score wasn’t available at press time. While a 0-6 start in league play was discouraging for players and coaches alike, Cantwell has been urging the young Falcons to stick to the plan
and have faith in their abilities. “We just have to keep grinding it out,” said Cantwell, the Falcons’ Canadian-born head coach. “Everyone of the guys that are here can play. In three or four games, we were getting lots of hits, but just not when we needed them. That’s when you start pressing a little too much. But if we stick with it, sooner or later those are going to fall in and we’re going to start scoring some runs.” Hitting has been the club’s Achilles heel early in the season as the Falcons were batting just .158 heading into this week’s action. The pitching staff— the Falcons’ perceived strength—has generally been effective, the best effort so far coming from Brandon Marris who tossed a two-hitter on
Sunday. In the big picture, Cantwell says the Falcons still have plenty of time to get their game in order. “Sometimes the baseball gods aren’t with you and we’ve had some tough breaks early in the season here…that’s not making excuses,” he said. “The good thing is as a coach is all these new guys are giving you their ears and they’re listening. They’re starting to get on the same page and that can be a challenge when you’ve got guys coming from all over the country with different ideas. I keep preaching, attack, attack, attack, let’s be aggressive and if we do that, I believe we’re going to win lots of ball games.” The Falcons will add two key pitchers to their staff this week, both of whom played for Louisiana State University-

KELOWNA FALCONS outfielder Blake Curruthers beats the throw to steal second base against the Langley Blaze in West Coast League action Saturday at Elks Stadium.

Athletics set new club mark for wins The Okanagan Athletics used extra innings twice on the weekend, climbing above .500 on the season and establishing a new club record for wins in a B.C. Premier Baseball League season. A stretch of eight wins in their last 10 games has catapulted the Athletics into the middle of the BCPBL pack and improved its record to 16-15, surpassing the most wins any Athletics or Cubs team has ever compiled since the franchise joined the PBL in 2004.
The A’s opened its weekend set with the Nanaimo Pirates a 5-4 extra innings win when Dallis Senger scored the winning run on a James Ward single. Tanner Collins earned the win while Dillon Kakoshke earned the save as both hurlers tossed four innings. Nanaimo scored four runs in the seventh to come from behind and edge Okanagan 7-6 in Saturday’s second game as Nolan Handley took the loss.
But on Sunday both games went Okanagan’s way. Nathan Ackerman drove in three runs while Colin Currie had two hits, two runs and two RBI’s as the Athletics defeated the Pirates 9-3. Cliff Heidebrecht scattered six hits in a complete game win. The A’s closed out the series with another extra innings win, scoring two in the 10th inning to earn a 7-5 win. Brandon Sonnenberg belted a two run home run

There’s something about the surroundings at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club that brings out the best in Gudmund Lindbjerg. For the third straight year, the Port Moody golfer has won the KGCC’s Senior Men’s Invitational. But New Bellingham’s Bill Drummond didn’t make it easy as he pushed Lindbjerg to a sudden-death playoff on Friday afternoon. The two players finished tied after regulation with identical scores of 69-70 for a two-day total of five-under par 139. The playoff started on the par-3, 15th hole where both players made pars. The two then moved on to the par-5, 16th where Drummond hit his tee shot up the left side of the fairway leaving him a bit of a tricky second shot if he wanted to go for the green in two. Lindbjerg hit his drive to the right side and ended up with a very tricky awkward lie in the rough. Drummond hooked his second shot into the trees while Lindbjerg hit an amazing second shot onto
the green from about 200 yards away to set up a birdie and win the playoff. First round co-leader Ron Petersen of Pitt Meadows Golf and Country Club finished third at 142 (69-73), Kelowna Golf and Country Club’s Wayne Schaeffer was fourth at 143 (71-72), while Mick Palahniuk was fifth at 148 (72-76).

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
Coach Kelly Wolverton was reasonably certain if his players stuck to the game plan and continued to work hard, there would be a payoff. Such was the case on the Island over the weekend as the Okanagan Challenge rang up back-to-back Pacific Coast Soccer League victories. After losing three consecutive one-goal decisions, the Challenge turned the tables with two hard-fought, onegoal wins of their own—2-1 win over Victoria United on Saturday night, and 3-2 over the Mid Isle Highlanders on Sunday afternoon.

Making up for early losses at home Challenge from A16 â€œIt was nice to get those wins and to get them on the road,â€? said Wolverton, in his first season as head coach. â€œWe were a little disappointed with losing two games at home two weekends ago and we needed to make up for it. The effort was as good, if not a little better than itâ€™s been in all our games this season. It was a really good weekend.â€? The Challengeâ€”now 3-3â€”survived some adversity en route to Saturdayâ€™s win over Victoria. Reliable midfielder David Hill was shown a red card and was ejected with about 20 minutes to play, a call Wolverton wholeheartedly disagreed with. â€œIt was a disappointing decision,â€? he said. â€œIt was Davidâ€™s first tackle of the game, he hadnâ€™t been causing any problems, so to get a straight red card I thought was excessive. He missed Sundayâ€™s game too because of it. It was a bad break for the guys but See Challenge A20

to their credit, they fought through it.” The Challenge went up 1-0 in Victoria in the fifth minute as Justin Wallace found John Hodnett open in behind the back line, one-on-one with the keeper and Hodnett made no mistake. Then in the 20th minute, a wide-open Hodnett slotted his second as Wallace again supplied the assist for a 2-0 lead. Victoria cut the lead in half on a penalty kick in the 25th minute, but the Challenge would hang tough over the final 65 minutes—the last 20 without Hill and just 10 men on the pitch. “It was a grind for the guys and they did a great job of holding on,” said Wolverton. “To see that from them and knowing they’re capable is good for their confidence. They saw something important come from the effort they put into it. It was nice for me as a coach to see it too.” On Sunday, one of the Challenge’s most picturesque goals of the year turned out to be the game winner. Justin Wallace passed ahead to Dustin Luck who advanced the ball before playing it out wide to Dylan Abbott. Luck then continued into the box as Abbott crossed the ball back to Luck who executed a perfect header from 12 yards out in the 71st minute. “That’s one of the better goals I’ve seen this year,” Wolverton said. Wallace got the Challenge on the board in 52nd minute, then scored again
in the 65th minute on a cross from Hodnett. Wallace, a Kamloops product who attends Seattle University, figured in all five Okanagan goals over the weekend. “That’s an expectation I have of Justin, we hadn’t really seen a lot of it, but he sure showed what he could do,” Wolverton. “He’s a freshman, a pretty young guy and he’s got a lot of potential. I called on him to take the penalty kick and he stepped up and did the job.” Individual play aside, Wolverton commended the team effort. “We had a lot of guys who really had good weekends. I think we progressed in each of the games and got better and better as a team. I’m happy with the product.” The Challenge expect to have their hands full this weekend as they go back on the road for two PCSL games. On Saturday, Okanagan will visit the Vancouver Thunderbirds, then will be in Colverdale to battle Surrey United.
The Okanagan Football Club earned a draw in two home games in Pacific Coast Soccer League Premier Women’s action over the weekend. On Saturday at UBCO, Fraser Valley beat Okanagan 3-0. On Sunday, Paige Howes and Ashlee Davison scored for the home side in a 2-2 draw with the Whitecaps Prospects. Okanagan FC will return to PCSL action Saturday, June 25 at home to North Shore.

Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures.

Lionel Trains and a variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they can always make an offer to buy it. A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box.

So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, they will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

SPORTS ▼ VOLLEYBALL
UBCO recruits new Heat players UBC Okanagan Heat men’s volleyball coach Greg Poitras didn’t have to look far to find his latest recruit as Kelowna Secondary product Leo Schober has signed his letter of intent for the fall of 2011. Schober is a relative newcomer to the game. “I picked up volleyball for the first time when I tried out for the KSS AAA senior volleyball team September 2009, my Grade 11 year,” said Schober. In his short volleyball career his team has had considerable success as the Owls were city champs in 2009 and finished ninth at provincials, while Schober was named the Owls most improved player. In 2010, Schober helped lead KSS to the Okanagan valley title and a fourth place showing at the B.C. high school championship. “He was an integral part of the Kelowna senior boys volleyball team,” said KSS coach Mike So-
daro. “His superior net play led us to the provincials, following a city and valley championship. Leo will develop into a great player at UBCO and we wish him all the best.” The Heat’s head coach
believes Schober just might be a diamond in the rough. “With Leo’s size and how quickly he has picked up the game I was motivated to spend some time watching him over his sen-
ior year in school and into his first club season,” said Greg Poitras. “By the end of the club season it was clear to me that he was going to be a good fit for our volleyball program.” Schober was also scouted by schools such as Thompson Rivers, Capilano and Camosun, but chose to stay at home for several reasons. “With UBCO going into the CIS league, I could not pass up that offer,” said Schober. “Playing at a much higher level I will be surrounded by some of the best players in Canada. “Academically I chose to study engineering as my future career. I know that UBC is an extremely well known campus around the world…UBCO is also local so I can remain in my lovely home town of Kelowna.” Schober joins two other Central Okanagan recruits to join the Heat, as Kelowna’s Leigh Goossen and Lake Country’s Jonathan Russo will also be freshman this season.

NEWS ▼ HAM RADIO OPERATORS
Field Day exercise for preparation and camaraderie
Car flips, lands at source of problem
Barry Kerton CONTRIBUTOR
What would you do if all electronic communications were to break down? No Facebook, Twitter, email, cell phone or even your good old-fashioned landline telephone. This is exactly the situation that members of the Orchard City Amateur Radio Club will be preparing and practising for this June 25 and 26 at Raymer Bay Regional Park. The event the OCARC members will be participating in is called Field Day, an annual contest designed to test the emergency communications ability. To simulate this, amateur radio operator’s set up in the ‘field’ using portable, makeshift antennas and emergency power. Then they talk to as many other amateur radio operators as possible during a 24 hour period. The ham radio operators in the Central Okanagan, as they are more
ORCHARD CITY Amateur Radio Club members Irek Kwapich (left) and Stephen Morrison. commonly referred to, know the importance of setting up communications in the field. During the Okanagan Park Fire and the wild
fires in West Kelowna in 2009 ham radio operators were called upon to provide communication support for Emergency Social Services as well as Interi-
or Health. In fact, radio amateurs are an integral part of the regional district’s emergency communication plan and have a spot in the
EOC (Emergency Operations Centre). The Filmon Report, a study commissioned by the B.C. government, recommended that: “All Emergency Operation Centres should include a provision for amateur radio operators, including power and antenna space, in case they are needed.” Norman Barton, EOC communications coordinator and a long-time ham operator explained, “The amateur radio operators were an integral part of the EOC during the 2003 firestorm. “They provided the communication link for emergency social services and the evacuation reception centres in Kelowna. “This was especially important during the first couple of days as cell phone and other radio systems coverage were spotty.” Members of the Orchard City Amateur Radio Club also provide communication support for COSAR (Central Okana-
gan Search And Rescue) about a dozen times every year. And then there are the social aspects of Field Day as well. “Field Day is as much a social event as anything else,” noted OCARC member Carl Bertholm. “While Field Day gives us the chance to practise our communication skills, it also gives us a chance to socialize with other hams. “At Field Day you might be able to put a face to someone that you have only talked to over the air.” Ham radio operators are also proud of their hobby and Field Day gives them a chance to showcase it. “Besides,” joked OCARC member Mike Fleming, “public exposure is worth bonus points.” Field Day runs from Saturday 11 a.m. to Sunday, 11 a.m. For more information about the Field Day exercise, call 250-859-7767.
Kelowna RCMP believe alcohol impairment could be what caused the driver of a grape coloured Volkswagen to lose control of his car, veer off the road and flip into a Kelowna vineyard. Police were called to a rollover in the 4800 block of Lakeshore Road, Saturday at around 2:15 a.m., said Const. Steve Holmes. At the location, they found a 20 year old Kelowna man, being treated by the paramedics for minor injuries. Police said he showed signs of alcohol impairment, so they asked him to blow into the breathalyzer. He complied, and Holmes alleges he blew twice the legal limit. The man now faces charges of driving while impaired and driving over .08.

Budding entrepreneurs step into a Dragon’s Den The winners were announced this week for the 2011 Dragons’ Den Edition of the Young Entrepreneur Program which was held May 30 at the Coast Capri Hotel. The young entrepreneur program, now in its 17th year, is for students in Grades 7 to 12 and is a joint initiative between the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, School District 23 Career Life Programs and Okanagan College School of Business. Beelineweb.com was the platinum sponsor of the awards luncheon. With the Central Okanagan having one of the highest rates of entrepreneurship in Canada, the aim of the program is to provide youth in our community with hands-on learning experiences and create excitement towards the topic of entrepreneurship. Students entered in teams of one to five with 58 teams signing up to compete. As in previous years, students had to complete three tasks to show the judges the feasibility of their business idea: Task #1: create their product or service Task #2: create and develop a marketing and promotion plan Task #3: complete a financial plan which includes costing, pricing, sales forecasting, profit
projections and concepts Students began to work hard on their business ideas back in February. Teams were judged throughout the competition by business professionals (the “Dragons”) from many areas of the community. Out of the 58 teams that started in the competition, 44 teams were eliminated following the judging of Task #1 and Task #2. Fourteen student teams competed in the third and final task of the Dragons’ Den Competition and were invited to the awards luncheon as finalists. The first-place winners from Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon will move on to the regional competition at the Okanagan College campus in Kelowna. A prize of $1,800 was awarded to the winning secondary school team, with a $750 prize going to the team that comes in second place. The middle school winning team took home $750 and the second place team won a prize of $250. Third place team winners in both categories received bronze medals. All finalists received a gift bag containing items donated by sponsors from the business community.

BUSINESS ▼ ENTREPRENEURS
Get out front and committed to entrepreneurial ideas A
s most of the readers of this column will attest, I have become quite devoted to the extended realm of entrepreneur leadership in the entrepreneurial journey. This week, I would like for us to explore critical items that a good entrepreneurial leader must possess, and then take a look at how leadership errors may become opportunities for enrolling people in their personal visions. There appears to be an endless supply of books in the market today that deal with leadership in many different aspects. I’m the first to admit that I own a lot of those titles in my attempt to explore and broaden my own knowledge base. But sometimes, I simfply get bogged down from the latest research. I mean, is it really necessary to know what your emotional IQ is? That’s why I find myself at times just wanting to get back to basics in this puzzle called life. Last week, I was deeply engrossed in dialogue with an executive from Calgary who is very
Joel Young successful at motivating and leading his team. In his office, he shared with me about how he had posted a memo on his bulletin board that said it all for me: “Three Things a Good Entrepreneurial Leader Must Possess: Vision, Strategy & Accountability.” After reading it, I thought to myself, that is what it’s all about. It is possible to take the concept of leadership and break it down into its simplest terms and still be effective. Entrepreneurs and small business owners alike need these great leaderships traits, too. And if you are like me, in the early phases of startup I want things to be as simple and easy as possible and yet effective. That being said, here are some quick thoughts on each of these three qualities for you to take-in
and let marinate over the coming week. Vision—to be successful and still be an effective leader, you must have vision and not be fearful of thinking big. You may not be running a Fortune 500 venture, or even aspire to do so, but you still ought to think big. Have a vision for yourself or your entrepreneurial venture that makes others want to tell you, “ You’re crazy, Joel!” Down the road, they will be kicking themselves wishing they were as “crazy” as you were at the outset. Sound good? Strategy—when it comes to your new or enhanced venture, is your emphasis going to be on growth or differentiating yourself from the competitors? And how are you going to accomplish that? Please try and remember this motto: “Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance.” I can’t tell you how many times I have worked with people who have great goals and aspirations but have no idea how they are going to do it.
So think about this, what will be your strategy for overcoming the challenges that may get in the way of the future you desire for yourself, your venture and your dreams? Accountability—I’m a huge fan of entrepreneurship and small business, as I indicated in my opening words to this column, particularly as applied with the leadership ingredient. But let’s face it, it’s a different animal. You have to be a special kind of person to succeed in this entrepreneurship game. Not all of us will have the luxury of having a dedicated alter ego getting in our face and telling us to get our butts in gear. That’s why personal accountability in the entrepreneurial journey is so important. Here’s another question: Have you followed through with what you need accomplished to-day to continue moving your life or venture in the right direction? Becoming a great entrepreneurial leader often begins with being able to lead ourselves. Let me offer a brief look a few most common
Tax planning investors offer their insights

leadership mistakes made by entrepreneurs. Don’t be afraid to engage a leadership or venture coach to help you see what you have difficulty seeing on your own. Be clear and committed with respect to the fundamentals of your entrepreneurial venture. Get everything simplified, refined and written down—reaching agreement and commitment to an action plan is your end goal. What if your venture is already operating, is it too late? No, it is never
When your answers are clear and you understand your need for commitment to a desire course of action, you’ll be amazed at the renewed sense of commitment you will experience as both an entrepreneur and a leader. The net result is a burst of acceleration that will astound you.

Caregiver tax credit has arisen from home care needs f T ‘‘
he caregiver non refundable tax credit is becoming more prevalent in the filing of today’s tax returns because many of us have decided to take care of our aging parents or may have a child that has a physical or mental impairment. The maximum credit that can be claimed is $4,223 for each dependent subject to several conditions. The first condition is that the dependant person has to be living with you at sometime during the year and cannot be just visiting. The dependant needs to be a resident of Canada. The dependant can be a child, a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew. The dependant must be 18 years and older.
BEHIND THE COUNTER
Gabriele Banka The dependant’s net income from line 236 of their tax return cannot exceed $18,645. The person you are claiming needs to have been dependent on you for support due to a physical or mental impairment. There are three places in the income tax return where this claim needs to be recorded. The first is on Schedule 5 where the details of the dependant are entered as well as the nature of the infirmity. The next spot is line 306 for dependants that are 18 and older.
The calculation begins with a base amount of $10,215. The dependant’s net income is deducted from this amount. If the result is more than $4,223, the maximum deduction of $4,223 is taken. Line 315 addresses the Caregiver amount. This line begins with a base amount of $18,645 less the dependent’s net income. If the amount is greater than $4,223, then the maximum deduction of $4,223 is taken. If a deduction was claimed on Line 306 this is now deducted from the $4,223 claimed on this line. If the dependant is a child and you make child support payments, you cannot claim a caregiver amount. If you have recently
THE MAXIMUM CREDIT THAT CAN BE CLAIMED IS $4,223 FOR EACH DEPENDENT SUBJECT TO SEVERAL CONDITIONS.
gone through a separation you may be able to claim an amount for a portion of the year as long as no support payments have been claimed. If you have joint custody, you may split the claim with your spouse but it cannot exceed the maximum claim. If you have more than one dependant living with you, then claim this deduction for each dependant. If you take an eligible dependant deduction for this dependant, you cannot also claim a caregiver amount.
If anyone else claims the person as a dependant, you cannot also claim a caregiver amount. The Canada Revenue Agency defines a parent as someone who had custody and control of you when you were under 19 years of age and on whom you were completely dependent. Due to the combining of families, a child can include someone who is actually older than you, but who has become dependent on you. In addition, the dependant may also receive a disability amount if form T2201 has been filled out by your doctor and approved by CRA. If the dependant does not use the entire disability credit to offset his or her income, the balance could be transferred to your return. This is only possible if you have made a claim on line 305 and you are not claiming child support and no one else is making
the claim. As a caregiver you may be eligible for other benefits such as compassionate care benefits from employment insurance if you need to take time off work to care for someone that is terminally ill or near death. If you are self employed, you can elect to register for EI and may be eligible for compassionate care benefits. Sometimes you may need a break from taking care of a physically or mentally infirm dependant for a day or a few hours. If that is the case, some of the local nursing homes offer respite services whereby they will take care of your dependant giving you time to yourself or even just to run some important errands. Finally, you may opt to have someone come in and live at the home to provide the care giving services.
Service Canada provides a Live-In Caregiver program whereby a professional caregiver can work in Canada. These persons are qualified to work without supervision in a private household to take care of children and elderly persons who have disabilities. Both the CRA web site and the Service Canada web site have links to a short questionnaire that will help you determine if you qualify for the caregiver non-refundable tax credit. The 2011 federal budget has introduced a new Family Caregiver non-refundable tax credit deduction of $2,000 in addition to the existing credit which is to be implemented for the 2012 tax year.

NEWS â–ź FUNDRAISER
Couple of Harleys up for grabs in KDSC raffle The Kelowna & District Safety Councilâ€™s fifth annual Harley Davidson raffle fundraiser is in the home stretch, with just two weeks of ticket sales left. â€œWe sold out of the three-for-$50 tickets over the May long weekend, but we have lots of the $20 tickets left and people are still purchasing multiples: 2/$40, 3/$60, and quite a few have bought 5/$100,â€? said Tania Meyer, KDSC executive director. â€œIt seems that more people are willing to buy multiples once they know that the draw date is nearing.â€? With approximately 500 tickets left, KDSC is hoping for another sellout to meet its fundraising goals. The winnerâ€™s name will be randomly drawn on Fatherâ€™s Day, June 19, 3 p.m. at Boydâ€™s Fatherâ€™s Day Car Show at Kelownaâ€™s City Park. The lucky winner will win two 2011 Harley Davidson Sportsters as well as a 32-hour
Learn to Ride course from the Kelowna & District Safety Council. The bikes being raffled are a black 1200cc Sportster and a birch white and sedona orange 883 Super Low Sportster. The total prize value is $25,870, but the winner doesnâ€™t have to be present at the draw in order to claim the prizes. Only 3,500 tickets were printed, so the odds of winning are good. So far, each of the winners has been a Kelowna resident. The bikes will be carried by trailer from one location to the next, so that the first person to put any kilometers on the bike will be the winner. The prize hogs will be on display from now until June 18 at Princess Auto, where volunteers will be selling tickets each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The bikes will then be on display for the final day of sales, June 19 (if there are still tickets left at that time). Tickets can also be
picked up in person at the KDSC office, 395 Hartman Road, across from the YMCA in Rutland, or they can be ordered over the phone by calling KDSC at 250-7653163 (toll free: 888-5807233). Visit www.kdsc. bc.ca for full raffle information and for photos of the prize bikes. BC Gaming Licence #31313. As a fundraiser for KDSC, proceeds from this raffle will help ensure that all of its safety programs will continue to grow. The Kelowna & District Safety Council operates the Little Travellersâ€™ Safety Village, runs one of the oldest and largest motorcycle training facilities in B.C., and offers defensive driving programs for seniors. â€œAs a non profit organization, we really rely on this raffle to make our programs possible, and people can help us achieve our goals for as little as $20. And theyâ€™ll have a chance at great prizes as well,â€? Meyer said.
HOT TRUCKâ€ŚAn overheated transmission was the suspected cause of a fire that erupted in this
pickup truck last week as it was pulling a rented trailer full of dirt along Highway 33 in Rutland. Nobody was injured in the fire but the truck suffered severe damage.
Raising hope for poor nations
A fundraiser called ONE World Okanagan, raising awareness and money for education and water projects in Africa, will present a speakersâ€™ night Tuesday, June 21, with Ray Zahab, president and founder of Hope For Nations, Ralph Bromley, founder of impossible2Possible youth inspiration organization, Congo refugee Nathanael Mugenza and Connor Clerke, a marathon runner who plans to run 125 kms from the U.S. border to City

Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion making its way to Okanagan Mark Brett CONTRIBUTOR
Drawn into the enveloping mist Dralion audiences are quickly whisked away to enjoy a mystical experience of space, colour and excitement. In this uncharted dimension where time no longer exists and harmony reigns, the unique, symmetrical mix of art and body provide a virtual playground for the mind around every corner of the uncharted route. Add in a dash of slapstick and all is right in the unreal world of Cirque du Soleil, coming later this month to the Okanagan. Like the company’s other 18 shows currently touring the globe, Dralion’s success is the result of years of work by people who have dedicated their lives to developing the wonderment which has become Cirque’s trademark. People like acrobatics head coach Michael Ocampo, who initially signed on for a couple of years as a performer and now, nearly two decades later, is still a troupe member. “I love it, I really
do,” said the Quebec native as trampoline athletes warmed up behind him before show time in Abbotsford. “It’s such a

thrill to work with people of this calibre. Most of our acrobats and performers are perfectionists and our musicians and our singers too, because if they weren’t they wouldn’t be here.” Dralion is a colourfully fictional blend of east and west, the dragon and lion in which the four elements of air, water, fire and earth come together in an elaborately staged interaction of movement and story telling.
MARK BRETT/BLACK PRESS
PERFORMER Dong Jie applies makeup in the dressing room before his turn on
stage in the Cirque du Soleil production of Dralion scheduled for the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton June 29 to July 3. And while he is not one of the athletes, Michael Hughes’ role as Al-
berti, one of the three clowns, is a critical component of the perform-
ance. “Our role inside the show is kind of just to
share the love,” said the 30-year-old, theatretrained actor. “These clowns are all about love, they love to be around the circus and they’re as amazed as the audience ends up being.” Hughes admits being on the road so much can be difficult at times. “But it’s such a great ensemble here; they are like family for me,” he said. “There’s always a balance; when I need those few moments for myself and then when I need the ensemble. “There is just such an amazing energy on stage and off, so in that respect I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.” After four years on tour, trampoline artist Dmytro Negodin still loves the audience reaction. “Mentally it can be difficult especially when you do so many shows, but when 3,000 people stand up and cheer,” said the Ukrainian athlete, “the public gives me the energy I need.” As staggering as the show itself, is the infrastructure, most of which is contained in the 18 semitrailer trucks that will
soon be rolling into Penticton. It includes everything from the five-metre high, 18-metre wide metal temple-like backdrop to the three motorized aluminum rings suspended high above the stage used to move performers and provide support for technical and acrobatic equipment. There are also the 1,500 costumes cut from 5,000 metres of fabric which include some rather unusual items like bubble wrap, window screen and springs. More than 300 pairs of shoes alone are cleaned and hand-painted each week by the touring staff who travel with their own washers and dryers. Eight performances of Dralion are scheduled for the South Okanagan Events Centre beginning June 29 and running until July 3. Tickets are available at the SOEC box office in Penticton, online at www.valleyfirsttix.com or by phone 1-877-7632849. Mark Brett is a Black Press reporter with Penticton Western News.

Veterans Tedeschi and Trucks step up for debut album TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND: REVELATOR (SONY)
Susan Tedeschi and Butch Tucks are wife and husband. She has a half dozen albums under her belt and three of those hit No. 1 on the blues charts while Trucks is a celebrated slide guitarist who plies his trade with the Allman Brothers Band where he is considered by many to be the equal of both Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. Earlier this year Tedeschi and Trucks contributed a song to the bigselling Herbie Hancock tribute album to John Lennon, titled The Imagine Project—not forgetting that Hancock’s previous album won a Grammy for 2007 Album Of The Year as a tribute album to Joni Mitchell titled River: The Joni Letters. Anyway, after the Hancock sessions hubby and wife met some new musicians who they took on the road as the Soul Stew Revival and this new album, Revelator, comes from that 11-piece band and represents the Tedeschi Trucks Band debut album. This is a fabulous slice of new gospel-tinged blues with all songs written by the spouses that promises to be one of the best blues albums of this year. The couple are very happy and that comes across on this disc loaded with love (and sometimes lust) songs. There is not a dud on this terrific album with the gorgeous slow jam of Midnight In Harlem, the serpentine gumbo of Love Has Something Else To Say and the gospelinformed Don’t Let Me Slide. As mentioned, all dozen tracks here are originals but Tedeschi and Trucks tend toward classic titles such as Bound For Glory (not the Woodie Guthrie song), Come See About Me (not The Supremes song) and Ball And Chain (not the Janis Joplin vehicle). But these are solid songs and it will be interesting to see how this couple will fit the success
Bruce Mitchell of this album in with their other activities. B+
DANGER MOUSE & DANIELE LUPPI: ROME (PARLOPHONE)
This is a one-off collaboration between electronic artist and producer Danger Mouse and noted Italian film composer Daniele Luppi. Apparently this album was a long time in the making with both artists contributing while time would allow for busy careers. But Rome is more or less a soundtrack album to a movie that has yet to be made, or may never be made. There is plenty of spaghetti western, wet, echoey guitar on Rome, while the collaborative duo were wise to hire high profile singers Norah Jones and Jack White, ex of The White Stripes, to sing these songs and add a little more pizzazz to the sessions. Most of the musicians here are veteran and even senior citizens of the Italian film genre while most of the tunes are short. The best song to my ears is the Euro-pop of the Jones sung Problem Queen while the feature tracks as stickered are the string-laden Black (the opening melodies reminded me of Hotel California) and the White sung Two Against One where White seems to channel a little Robert Plant. I am not a cognoscente of Italian film scores but if you are interested in this semi mock up you will probably find some snippet to enjoy. C+
JACKIE EVANCHO: DREAM WITH ME (COLUMBIA) This album is sort of freakish for the massive talent of its 11-yearold singer Jackie Evancho. She actually looks

younger than a young girl in double digit years and she did in fact wow the audiences and judges of America’s Got Talent a few years ago when she was only nine. Evancho is decidedly a phenom with oodles of talent but you are just left scratching your head about how this huge voice can be coming out of such an unfledged, doll-like body. Last year Evancho released a short, four-song Xmas album that came with an equally short
DVD of her America’s Got Talent performances and it sold at No.2 in the USA. This full length album, I bet, will generate a ton of interest where Evancho seems equally adept at operatic arias, pop songs and show tunes. The best of these are the two Puccini arias Nessun Dorma and O Mio Babbino Caro, along with a take of Sarah McLachlan’s pop ballad Angel and the show tune When You Wish Upon A Star. Evancho even holds
her own and more with Barbra Streisand on the West Side Story evergreen Somewhere (where the 60+ years in age difference makes the usual boy/girl duet seem doable) and with Susan Boyle on the David Foster-penned and produced A Mother’s Prayer. But my fave track here is the exotic, oriental-sounding Lovers as written by Shigeru Umebayashi that has some ambient electro leanings. Again, Jackie Evancho seems freakishly ac-
complished from someone who almost looks like a toddler, yet I predict huge crossover success. B
OZZY OSBOURNE: DIARY OF A MADMAN (EPIC LEGACY)
I mentioned last week that the early Ozzy album, Blizzard Of Ozz, had been released as an expanded ‘legacy’ re-issue. Well Ozzy’s second album has also been given the upgrade treatment but fans will be champing at the bit even more for this
two-CD set. Again, the original tapes were used for a brilliant remastering and restoration but the second disc here is a superb live concert that culminates in the Black Sabbath signature song Paranoid as well as the three hits off Diary Of A Madman with Over The Mountain, Flying High Again and You Can’t Kill Rock And Roll. The 11-track concert material here makes this a must own for the big Ozzy fan. B

Mike was in sales most of his career, and in 2006, with his wife and business partner, he made a career change and began running Interior Tax & File Small Business Services, a successful small business services company. A Funeral Mass will be held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 839 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna on Friday, June 17at 1:00.
