THE 2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon was a natural choice to be awarded the Canadian Automotive Jury Best of the Best Award for Automotive Excellence, a vehicle that offers something for just about every buyer’s taste.

BE PREPARED to have your breath taken away when the Alegria tour for this Cirque du Soleil production makes a stop in Kelowna for performances at Prospera Place from Aug. 25 to 29.

FAMILIAR TERRITORY… A forest fire was ignited Thursday afternoon at the south end of Lakeshore Road, in an area the Okanagan Mountain Park fire of 2003 had burned before.

Forest service helicopters and an air tanker (above) combined with the Kelowna Fire Department to keep the blaze under control. See story and more photos on A3.

▼ MURDER TRIAL

Mother overcomes grief at loss of daughter, grandchild Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

Over sobs from the man who killed her daughter and grandson, Marla Smith shared memories of the day that forever changed her family and explained how she’s learned to

move forward. “To this day it seems surreal (that they’re gone),” she said at Nicholas Coopper’s sentencing hearing Thursday. Two years later, she still expects to hear her 28-year-old daughter’s car come barrelling down the street with its

stereo blasting, or soak in time with her bright and vivacious 20-month-old grandson. “My family has been diminished by this act,” she said. “…I so wanted to hate and exact revenge…but for me to heal and move forward, I cannot carry my hatred.”

Considering the circumstances she’s faced, finding forgiveness is a feat many have told her they don’t understand her capacity for, Smith said. On Dec. 17, 2008, Smith drove to her daughter Karen’s house after she was told she was absent from work.

She told the court she remembered pulling into the driveway, and realizing something wasn’t right. Getting frustrated by banging on the door for so long, she enlisted a neighbour’s help to break into the Rutland townhouse and came upon a gris-

ly scene in the upstairs master bedroom. “I found my daughter’s lifeless body exposed,” she said. “I consider myself fortunate we didn’t have to find Ayden.” See Grief A4

Flames return to familiar territory Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

The increasingly familiar sight of smoke rose over Kelowna Thursday afternoon, heralding a return to duty for local fire crews and B.C. Forest Services. Two fires were reported near the south end of Lakeshore Road near the boundary of Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park, at around 1 p.m. and crews were on scene shortly thereafter to fight the blaze and evacuate residents who were in harm’s way. “When we arrived there were two hectares involved and it was fairly slow moving,” said Thomas Doherty, Kelow…THERE’S NOT A na’s assistant fire chief, LOT OF FANNING adding flames appear to have materialized from FUELS HERE. roadside. Thomas Doherty, At the same time Kelowna assistant B.C. Forest Services disfire chief patched one water bomber and three helicopters to hit the burgeoning blaze by air. The fire spread to 10.6 hectares by day’s end, but was considered controllable in relatively short order, as residents were allowed to go back to their homes. Only two households chose not to return once roads were opened again. While a formal evacuation order was not issued, many nearby residents chose to leave on their own While it was familiar ground for fire crews, Thursday’s flames were a lot more controllable, Doherty said, due to the 2003 Okanagan Mountain fire that burnt 238 houses and countless trees to the ground. “It definitely made a difference…there’s not a lot of fanning fuels here,” he said, adding the nearest structure was about 200 metres away. “At this point we have a pretty good handle on it …we’re putting guards in place.” About 50 Kelowna firefighters were on the scene Thursday afternoon, joined by two crews totalling seven forest service firefighters.

The Seclusion Bay interface fire zone is still under an Evacuation Order. One representative from each evacuated family was allowed temporary, escorted access to the evacuation area on Thursday to obtain personal effects and belongings. The representatives were to be taken to their homes via a bus with safety personnel on board. The forest service says critical infrastructure has been damaged and requires extensive repair. As well, in order to make the area safe, hazard trees, rocks and slope stability must first be assessed and actions taken to mitigate the hazards. Compounding the problem is the steep, rocky terrain and the condition of the narrow, single access road to the Seclusion Bay Resort and private properties below Highway 97.

‘He is a very tormented man…’ Grief from A1 According to police evidence shared by Crown counsel Thursday, Karen’s body was laying on the bed under a blanket, with a garbage bag over her head. A picture of her 20-month-old son had been placed under her left hand and the 30 pound barbell that had been used to bludgeon her was on the floor near the bed. Ayden’s body, police later discovered, had been shoved into a backpack, adjacent to where his mother was found. The scene was a result of Coopper’s night of drug-fuelled violence and obfuscation. While babysitting

Ayden, Coopper lashed out violently at the young boy, delivering fatal injuries. Realizing what he had done, he tried to revive Ayden with CPR, but failed. When Karen returned home early from work, Coopper tried to present a scene of calm. He made it appear as though Ayden was sleeping in his room, and he and Karen spent some time together before she went to sleep. Once she went to bed, Coopper decided to kill her in an apparent attempt to stop her from knowing about her dead child. The barbell was the weapon used to kill her, and her official cause of death was considered to

be suffocation and blunt force trauma. It was a crime Coopper claimed to feel immediate remorse for, through what later became evidence at the scene. Shredded letters to his victims and his family were found in an envelope near the bodies. Within he penned the words, “I’m lost and a cancer that should have been ripped from this world long ago—goodbye angels.” News that her grandson had been the subject of Coopper’s abuse, both the day of his murder and previously, came as a surprise to Marla Smith. “That was a revelation,” she said. “I don’t think he meant to kill

▼ KELOWNA

Ayden, but Karen’s was premeditated. He is a very tormented man and I hope he gets the help he needs.” For her part, she’s devoted herself to a project named after her grandson. Initially, she was working to create a daycare that operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week, saying she believed her family members might still be alive if such a facility was available for Karen, who was studying business administration. Now she’s working to create a crisis child care centre. Coopper pleaded guilty to charges for the second degree murder of Karen Smith and manslaughter in April. The Crown is seeking 20 years in Smith’s death and 12 to 15 years in the killing of the young boy. Watch for the sentencing decision at www.kelownacapnews.com.

Sir Elton is creating a buzz It might be the second-time around for Elton John to perform in Kelowna this past decade, but his concert at Prospera Place on Saturday night is still generating a buzz in the city’s downtown core. With the show a sell-out, a lot of people will be descending on the downtown core, always a good thing in the eyes of Downtown Kelowna Association executive director John Perrott. Perrott said restaurants and pubs will see an immediate upswing in business tomorrow night. “We know that a lot of people coming to the show will make a night of it, probably eat dinner out at a restaurant before the show, or maybe go out afterwards,” Perrott said. “There will no doubt be an electric atmosphere downtown as people will be really excited about the concert. Performing acts that have played at Prospera Place in the past have brought that same kind of excitement to the downtown. “This month, we have the Parks Alive concert series in full swing, and Doc Walk is shooting a video in Waterfront Park next week, Bryan Adams is

coming in August…it all helps to create a buzz around the downtown during the summer.” Perrott said the tourist season has been a bit different from previous years. The word he’s received from Tourism Kelowna officials is that travel preferences are shifting and more people seem to be making last minute decisions to come to the Okanagan. Dean Clarke, with Prospera Place, said preparations for the concert are carrying on as usual for any act that sells out the venue. “The logistics for us are to make sure people can enter and leave the building in as smooth as possible a fashion,” said Clarke, who noted the doors for the 8 p.m. show will open at 6:45 p.m. Saturday to help get people to their seats in an efficient fashion. Clarke said he’s getting a lot of people asking questions about the concert, which doesn’t surprise him given Sir Elton’s status in rock ’n roll music history. “We like to think all the concerts we put on are special, but there is no doubt this one is a special deal,” Clarke said.

Prof instigates art project in park Inmate dies in prison Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If you go out in the woods today, you’ll find some thinly disguised artistic endeavours—at least if you’re in UBCO creative writing professor Nancy Holmes’ neck of the woods. When Holmes moved to her Mission-area neighbourhood, she discovered Woodhaven Nature Conservancy on Raymer Road, and the area has never been the same since. “A lot of people in the neighbourhood say: Oh, we didn’t even know the park existed,” she said.

That was until Holmes applied for a grant through the university and got the ball rolling on a year-long art project to draw attention to its many wonders. The park is actually quite the place, with four distinct ecosystems within its 22 acres, including some western red cedar normally found on the coast, as well as ponderosa pine. Another riparian ecosystem includes black cottonwoods and there’s also a stand of Douglas fir. This weekend, anyone within range of the park will also be treated to another rare sight—a forest teeming with art enthusi-

ists will offer up their ideas of what makes the park worth noting. The Woodhaven Project has its own Facebook page describing what’s been happening, which can be found under the group Woodhaven Project. The university has also given it space on its own website at www. woodhaven.ok.ubc.ca. The whole effort is aimed at showcasing this amazing space to the community and is entirely free. Just show up at Woodhaven Nature Conservancy anytime between 1:30 and 4 p.m. this Saturday, July 17 and check it all out.

Dean Ernest Hopkins has been named as the inmate who died this month in Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. The 41-year-old from Peachland died on Saturday, July 3, but the cause of death still isn’t being re-

leased. “It is too early into the investigation for that,” said chief coroner Bruce Chamberlayne, noting he is waiting on the results of the postmortem and toxicology report. Once the cause of death is determined, an in-

quest could be called, but Chamberlayne said it will be several months before that is known. Hopkins was in KRCC as a result of breach, assault and robbery charges that were laid in Salmon Arm.

Gyro parking opens Saturday Construction of a temporary parking lot at the intersection of Lakeshore and Watt Roads, adjacent to Gyro Beach Park will be available for use beginning Saturday, July 17.

The temporary lot was constructed to ease summertime parking congestion in the Gyro Beach area by increasing the total number of parking stalls surrounding Gyro

Beach to 96. The parking lot will be in place for two years with the possibility of an extension to four. The long term plans for the site have not yet been determined.

▼ ARTS FUNDING

Pushing the artistic envelope should be a social need D ‘‘

oes one ever want to risk a little short-term gain only to wind up with long-term pain? Last week, I met a young artist for whom I really hope the concept doesn’t apply. His name is Cory Dixon and he has written a proposal to pair realtors and developers with upand-coming artists. The idea is for the arts community to access free space in buildings that the real estate community needs to attract a little attention to—either to sell or develop the property. On first blush, it’s a good solution to each sector’s problems, but there’s a fatal flaw, some say. If the intellectual community is right, these models mean the artist does not get paid and eventually cuts himself,

WORDSMITH

Jennifer Smith and others, out of the very community he has helped build. If, for example, a new band draws $1,000 in cover charges at the door, but manages to generate enough interest in a downtown warehouse to catch an investor willing to buy it for a couple of million, did the band really benefit when the warehouse is torn down to build condos? As each space sells— remembering Kelowna’s downtown is not a big place—the neighbourhood gentrifies, leaving less and less room for

the up-and-coming artists to live and work and generate the very buzz that made the new real estate niche a happening place. And Kelowna returns to a culturally devoid place where arts must yield to hockey. OK, seems a little doomsday to me, but it’s a well-documented phenomenon and one the arts community—including city administration, arts groups, local galleries, schools and so forth—are pretty aware of. The problem is, none of those bodies can offer a viable solution to Dixon’s problem. He needs free space to show his work and it’s not something that will likely have immediate commercial value. Art for arts’ sake is a controversial notion in small cities like ours where small businesses employ a large portion of the population. It’s often difficult to convince people who spend their entire day marketing themselves that the creative process can and should exist completely isolated from commercial influence. But it does have great value and finding free or cheap space for these

pants on has that “going to bed in your boyfriend’s T-shirt” look. The woman without a shirt, well I’m sure you remember the jeans commercials that made Kate Moss an icon. Long story short, he decided it might be easier not to objectify the model if he went with a man, as there’s really only one standard naked man pose—the jean-bottomed, ripped chest guy, usually leaning (James Deanstyle) against a wall or a car. He also realized, men tend to take their shirts off first when they get undressed—kind of a selfconscious male body image thing. The result is a series of life-size portraits of his friends pictured as you might find them on any given day going about their business, without their pants. Naturally, it’s a little controversial. So this spring, he tried to find a place to exhibit the show and couldn’t find one.

The real estate idea was his way of doing so, and frankly, if it’s the only way we’ll all get to see his show I think it’s pretty worth it. His work speaks to the commodification of the female body as much as it tests our attitudes about male sexuality. Google “body image” and “men” and you get information on steroid use. Try the same experiment for women and you get information on everything from beauty to body weight to eating disorders. It’s interesting, should generate important discussion and more importantly, when someone spends a few years creating something that has valuable intellectual and artistic merit, they should probably be rewarded for their effort. One idea would be to involve a gallery or arts organization in the real estate marriage, but then again, no arts organization is likely to support an idea whereby the arts community is eventually booted by development. But there may be another way. In working with a few of these business minds, there’s also a good chance someone who is as productive and proactive as Dixon might be able to finagle an ongoing work in exchange for a creative contribution deal. Fingers crossed. Finding space for those who truly push the boundaries and really contribute ideas that

push us all forward is a global struggle, mind you, so Dixon is definitely up against a big problem, either way. In Russia this week, two curators were convicted and fined for exhibiting work which plays with Christian imagery. At the same time, B.C. artist Chris Bose’s Jesus Coyote exhibit has found an accepting and even excited home at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art for effectively doing the same thing. Bose is being paid, incidentally; he’s one of only two artists coming to the centre this summer who will be financially rewarded for their efforts. Funding for the gallery’s artist-in-residence program was cut. Were there funding for more, Dixon might not be out bushwhacking his way to a show. This raises a question: If his project does prove there is financial benefit to the real estate community in having the artists within the neighbourhood they want to develop, perhaps the community, and in particular those interested in developing Kelowna’s downtown, should be required to contribute more to places like the Alternator, the Kelowna Art Gallery or some of the music venues in the neighbourhood. Consistent funding for the arts as a means of developing a health society—now that’s an “out there” concept.

people to explore is important. Dixon does male nudes—well, kind of nudes. He’s currently assembling a show where the men posing for his work are pantless, but otherwise engaged in everyday life fully clothed. This is a complete bastardization of why he does it, but the Coles Notes version is that he was exploring the concept of the female nude and how his instructors always stressed it is important not to objectify the female body. Basically, he found that when you put a naked woman in front of an art class and say, “draw,” you are objectifying her, in the same way you would objectify a box if you plunked one down and said to draw it. Consciously realizing that took him through a process whereby he tried to paint and draw women as people who just happen to not be wearing clothing. It didn’t work. Virtually any position you can put a woman in without clothing has been co-opted by advertising or art history, he says. The woman without

▼ SUMMER VACATION

Arduous journey for the parents I remember summer holidays when we were kids. We’d sit on the front steps with the other kids in the neighbourhood, licking home-made, grape Kool-Aid popsicles and letting them drip on our sunburned legs. “I’m bored.” “There’s nothing to do.” “What time is it?” As if it mattered. “Let’s play school,” someone would say. Strangely enough, we used to do that in summer holidays. We’d hop on our one-speed bikes with streamers and playing cards attached to the spokes with clothespins to make that helicopter sound. I’m not sure why we did that exactly, but it was pretty cool. But, I mostly remember travelling on family vacations. It was such a golden opportunity for family bonding in our Pontiac Grand Safari station wagon with the wood-grain sides. Dad would put stuff in the car and then mom would re-pack it so it would fit. Dad would tie the canvas tent and camping equipment to the roof and put the plastic orange tarp over it. Mom would check our bags for enough underwear. All we three siblings had to worry about was who got what seat, which was actually a pretty big deal. Our Grand Safari was pretty roomy for our family, but, as any

parent knows, when you’re driving all day with three children, no car is ever roomy enough. My older brother and I usually Shelley claimed the really Nicholl cool, backward-facing seat at the back of the wagon. I called the back seat the barf seat because that’s pretty much what happened there, but, for some reason, we always figured we could avoid the inevitable curse. As the car swayed along the Trans Canada highway, however, through the Fraser Canyon from the coast to the Okanagan, it wasn’t long before breakfast was dribbling out the back window. Once one of us blew, the other followed minutes later. My other brother, who never threw up, had the middle seat to himself mainly because he fought with both of us. So, then we had to slide into the seats beside him. With three kids and two windows, you know what happens. Being the youngest, with the shortest legs, it was expected I would get the middle hump to which I would argue with lawyerlike diligence that just because I was born last I shouldn’t always get the worst seat. I really hated it because my brothers would have races with the ultra-modern power windows and I wouldn’t get to play. Then, there were the territorial wars. We always had to draw lines

NUTSHELL

along the seats to make sure no one entered our area. “Moooom, he’s in my space,” I’d whine pretty much every five minutes. Poor mom. She had the job of throwing out threats to keep us children quiet so dad could drive safely. Keep in mind, this was long before we were supposed to wear seat belts, so we would roam about freely in the car, hopping over the seat in a getaway from pounding fists. Mom would engage us in a game of Eye Spy or point out sites of interest on the way to try to distract us from our wars. But, it was a long drive and our Safari wagon didn’t have air conditioning, so we’d get pretty sweaty and cranky and we would soon be spitting cherry pits at each other. Inevitably, I’d end up in the front seat between mom and dad. That was pretty boring. Mom didn’t even enter her window in the races. By Cache Creek, we’d stop for ice cream at Frosty’s. Every year, we’d tell someone who didn’t care that was our cat’s name. The day was pretty much done and the air was cool by the time we drove down the dirt road to the cabins on the northern part of Okanagan Lake where several of our relatives were. They say life is about the journey, not the destination. But, on those summer vacations, I’m pretty sure my parents felt the opposite. Shelley Nicholl is a public relations consultant .

RCMP say prevent tragedy by following road rules “Cyclists need to educate themselves about how to safely ride in traffic, and motorists need to share the road and keep bike lanes clear.” He says motorists need to put themselves in the pedestrian’s shoes, while cyclists and pedestrians need to put themselves in the driver’s seat. “We all need to do a better job of being alert on the road and anticipating the movements of others,” said Kittmer. “That means drivers need to slow down and let slower moving cyclists or pedestrians clear an intersection. “It also means cyclists need to signal their turns and be more predictable in their movements.” If even those basic rules were followed, there would be a dramatic decrease in the number of accidents attended to by police. RCMP statistics show the majority of altercations involving vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians happen at controlled intersections. Last year, RCMP recorded 65 car-cyclist col-

lisions that resulted in injury to the cyclist, one of which resulted in a cyclists’ death. “Cyclists must drive defensively and give themselves time and room to react if a vehicle fails to yield the right of way,” Holmes added. “We prefer to play an educational role regarding safety issues for cyclists and that usually convinces most people to change their behaviour. “Well over 50 per cent of tickets for cycling infractions are issued to prolific offenders—people who, for whatever reasons, refuse to obey the law.” Regardless of who is at fault in a collision between an automobile and a pedestrian or cyclists, the person not in a vehicle suffers the most, says Holmes. For this reason, cyclists and pedestrians need to err on the side of caution. Riding bikes on sidewalks, however, is taking caution too far and simply transfers all the risk onto pedestrians in the event of a collision. The exception to that

rule is cyclists under 12 years. The city’s bylaw permits children younger than 12 to ride on sidewalks, though they must

yield to pedestrians in all circumstances. For anyone older than 12, there is no excuse for riding on sidewalks, says

Kittmer. “Particularly downtown or other places where there are a lot of pedestrians, cyclists need to

get onto the road. They need to know the traffic rules and they need to signal their next move like all other vehicles.”

Whether you’re on two wheels, four wheels or two feet, knowing and following the rules of the road prevents accidents and helps traffic flow properly. Summer weather brings more pedestrians and bicyclists onto Kelowna’s streets, while automobile volumes also increase with the tourist season. That combination has also cranked up the volume on the annual debate about pedestrian safety, cyclists’ rights and motorists’ responsibilities. “Basically, for everyone on the road out there, it boils down to patience and common sense,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Steve Holmes. “Drivers, cyclists and even pedestrians need to pay attention to what’s going on around them and they need to know what their role is within the traffic rules.” Once they know what the rules are, they need to take responsibility for their own safety, says Mike Kittmer, active transportation coordinator for the City of Kelowna.

Repairs completed on damaged West Kelowna welcome sign Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

West Kelowna became Westbank for a brief and costly few hours thanks to the less-than-handy work of some vandals The north-positioned

sign welcoming visitors and residents alike to the District of West Kelowna was defaced sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Vandals took the word Kelowna away, and spraypainted Bank in its place.

Their apparent penchant for destruction didn’t stop there so they continued on to destroy the sign’s solar lighting system that had an estimated value of $3,500. “It’s a real shame that this has to happen,” said

Mayor Doug Findlator. “I’m really concerned. This is more than vandalism…this is a theft situation, and people need to grow up.” Findlator went on to say that the number “420” —the universal sign of

canabis culture—was also spray-painted on the sign, indicating that the brief name change had little to do with the political musings of those who still protest the West Kelowna designation. “This is not that group,

this is not their style,” he said. “They wouldn’t condone vandalism or theft.” Findlator said he believes that much of the concern about the name change has been laid to rest.

“I guess it is (an issue) for a few people. But I shop in the Westbank area every day…and I am well recognized by people,” he said. “Nobody approaches me about the name. The feedback, is, ‘You guys are doing a good job, but can you fix this pothole?’” While this week’s vandalism was immediately removed graffiti and then placed a tarp over the sign until other damages could be repaired Wednesday afternoon. An order has been made to replace the solar panel, but until the equipment arrives, the sign won’t be illuminated at night. The sign near Boucherie Road is one of two the municipality installed this spring to welcome motorists traveling into West Kelowna along Highway 97. The cost of designing, fabricating and installing both signs was estimated at $36,000. The solar lighting for both signs cost an additional $7,600.

Stolen car bust On July 7th, at just after 11 p.m., Members of the Kelowna RCMP’s Target unit arrested a 34year-old female after she was observed getting into the driver’s seat of a Black Honda Accord that had been stolen from Langley on June 30. Police initially observed the stolen vehicle parked in the 200 block of Mills Road. They waited until the female was spotted exiting a nearby residence. Once she got into the vehicle and closed the door, police converged and arrested the Naramata resident. A key to the vehicle was found on the driver’s seat. Jennifer Gauthier appeared in court to face a charge of possession of stolen property. She was remanded to appear in court on July 28. Gauthier is known to police for numerous past Criminal Code related offences.

Weaving cyclist sent to hospital after colliding with vehicle A weaving bicyclist appears to have set off a chain reaction collision early Wednesday morning near the intersection of Elks Road and Highway 97 in West Kelowna, according to police. Shortly after 2 a.m., police say two 17-yearold males were riding their bikes southbound along the Highway 97 shoulder. Shortly before reaching Elk Road, one of the bicyclists started weaving onto the road, and then subsequently opted to cross the highway. That maneuver caused a 55-year-old Penticton man driving a southbound 2003 Pontiac minivan to swerve in order to avoid hitting the bicyclist. However, the van hit the bike, sending the rider careering into the windshield and bouncing off the vehicle. The bicyclist then was able to get up and run across the highway at which point he collapsed. He was transported by ambulance to Kelowna General Hospital with scrapes and bruising to his head and shoulder. The minivan driver and his 52-year-old fe-

ears ago my husband and I took my son to a museum in Seattle which housed a display box with a number of tools used in the early days of newspaper publishing. At that time I was in my early 40s and there were tools in this box that I remember using way back in the 1980s when I worked at a student newspaper. These included waxing guns, blue line paper and pica rulers. Today all this work is done on computers and

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens these tools—as well as many of the jobs associated with this work—have all but disappeared. So when I came across a list which named 20 jobs that have disappeared I was not surprised to see newspaper typeset-

ter included. So which other jobs have vanished? Apparently we no longer have copy boys. These errand runners existed long before email. They would deliver paper correspondence to workers in large corporations and newspaper offices. Lamplights slowly became redundant once towns and cities changed their street lighting from gas lamps to electricity. Municipalities no longer had to hire men to light the lamps every

night. Another interesting job was pinsetters. These were workers, usually teenagers, who manually set bowling pins during a match. This just shows you how long we have had bowling alleys. Even though we still have elevators, we don’t have elevator operators anymore. The first passenger elevator was installed in New York City in 1857. These elevators required operators to move

levers to keep the elevator moving smoothly and to make sure it landed correctly at each floor. Today, Okanagan College is one of the few organizations that I know of that has a switchboard operator. Yet if you were to see the size of our switchboard it isn’t much bigger than an iPad attached to two monitors. Nearly all calling today is digitized and operators are no longer required to plug calls into the right telephone line.

It’s unfair to use the term switchboard operator for this job as it really functions as an information portal directing students and enquiries to the right person. Another office environment you don’t see anymore is the typing pool. This was a large room where mostly women sat in front of typewriters and created documents. There was no spell check and errors required you to rip up the document and start over. If you excelled in the typing pool you could move up and become a secretary. Today computers have replaced the typing pool and everyone is now their own typist. If anything, drafts of letters are often forwarded to executive assistants for proofing and mailing. Other jobs that have disappeared include lector (reading to groups of people who can’t read), log driver, telegraph operator, ice cutter, ice delivery man, Dictaphone operator, mimeograph opera-

tor (early photo-copying), street sweeper, sandman, sawyer (manually sawing wood to spec.), manual part loading (automotive industry), breaker boy (coal mining), rag and bone man (early garbage collection), bon-bon dipper, check writer, finger cobbler, clock hand inspector, quartermaster, sea sponge harvester and globe mounter. After looking at these jobs, it’s easy to see how manual labour through the years has been replaced by technology and more efficient machinery. No doubt this trend will continue and those looking for future job security should always consider technological innovation. Some people say that many of the people who are born today will end up working at jobs and in careers that haven’t even been invented yet. I can believe it.

▼ MENTAL HEALTH

Psychotic disorders known to have familial risks I

t has long been observed that children of parents with schizophrenia and other disorders involving psychosis seem to be more likely than average to develop similar disorders themselves. Research has also shown there is a familial link, but to date there has been little study into the specificity of risk or observance of these children into their mid-adulthood as most studies stop following the individuals once they get through the mid-20s when onset peaks for these conditions. A recently published study examined these things and found that children are indeed at a significantly higher risk of developing the same condition their parents have. Compared with controls, offspring of parents with schizophrenia psychosis spectrum have six times the risk of developing the disorder themselves and a doubled risk for developing affective psychoses (such as bipo-

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer lar disorder). Children of parents with an affective psychosis had a 14-fold elevated risk for a similar condition compared with controls and a doubled risk for schizophrenia psychosis spectrum disorder. The study, published in Archives of General Psychiatry this year, examined 203 high risk offspring of parents with psychoses and 147 offspring of control parents. These individuals were followed into their mid-adulthood because, although the peak age of onset for these conditions is between 18 and 30, sometimes a person is not affected until their 30s or 40s. As our understanding of human genetics grows, we are learning more

about the cause of many psychiatric conditions including schizophrenia. Although we now know genetics do play an important role in this condition, this does not account for all cases of schizophrenia or psychosis. Other causes are still unclear but likely involve a combination of biological and environmental factors. There is no cure for schizophrenia. Anti-psychotic medication can control symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations, but other hallmarks of schizophrenia such as lack of motivation and blunted emotions may not respond as well to medication. When symptoms begin, it is important to seek treatment as early as possible. Obviously, this disease is very upsetting to the individuals experiencing it and the sooner it is treated, the better. There is also a belief (supported by some research) that early inter-

vention may lead to better functioning and more independence in the long run. Schizophrenia tends to develop slowly as a gradual deterioration in the brain’s ability to process information or communicate with itself. Because of this gradual onset, family members may think the individual is simply going through a phase or rebelling and may not realize for some time that there is a serious problem. Some early warning signs to be aware of include • bizarre or unusual behaviour • an inability to sleep or mixing up of day and night • social withdrawal or isolation • hyperactivity or inactivity • inability to concentrate; unusual preoccupation with religion or the occult • hostility, suspicion or fearfulness • over-reaction to peer or family disapproval • deterioration in personal

hygiene; excessive writing or childlike printing with no clear meaning • flat, expressionless gaze; and peculiar use of language. Although one of these symptoms in itself may not constitute a serious problem, if you have a

loved one who is exhibiting several of these behaviours, it may be worthwhile to seek medical advice. Certainly, if you have a parent with a psychotic disorder, you are at increased risk of developing the condition yourself.

If you notice any of the above symptoms, speak with your doctor about it. Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials. 250-862-8141 dr@okanaganclinicaltrials.com

Greenway users reminded about proper trail use etiquette It’s a great place to take a stroll or a more strenuous run in the shade alongside Mission Creek. It’s an important corridor used by Central Okanagan cyclists. It’s also a trail frequented by some local equestrians. Mission Creek Greenway Regional Park is an extremely popular recreational trail that can find multiple user groups on it at any one time of the day. In fact, it’s estimated well over a thousand people use the 16.5-kilometre trail each day. They range from pe-

destrians walking and caregivers out with infants in strollers to joggers getting some exercise, cyclists and horseback riders exercising their steeds. “The Greenway is a year-round mecca for lovers of the outdoors. But during the spring, summer and fall months, we see a lot more traffic along the linear trail and just as it is on our roadways with so many multiple users comes the potential for periodic conflicts,” said CORD spokesperson Bruce Smith. Parks services bylaw

enforcement officer Blaise Laveay said everyone using regional park system trails should be aware of proper trail etiquette. “Under the Regional Parks Bylaw, all dogs must be kept on leash and must stay on designated trails,” said Laveay. “Cyclists shouldn’t go faster than 10 kilometers an hour along the trail and should keep to the right side of the trail, unless they are passing someone on foot,” he said. “They should also give an indication that they are approaching from behind

Beware of things that whine in the night due to West Nile Virus

lowly I pushed aside the mists of deep sleep and became aware of a pinpoint of pain on the back of my hand. It burned, so I gave it an unconscious scratch to see if it would go away. It itched as well as burning, and there was another one on the knuckle of my thumb on the same hand. Despite the discomfort, I succumbed to the pull of those mists and sleep regained me until I was jolted awake by the shrill whine of a mosquito dive-bombing my ear. Involuntarily, I slapped it and that woke me up. Have you ever had your ears boxed when you were asleep? I then realized that I did indeed have two or three distinct swellings

No longer just a ‘nuisance.’ Once upon a time the whole affair would have been annoying—a nuisance, but nothing serious. But, with today’s threat of West Nile virus, spread from birds to humans by mosquitoes, that nuisance is tainted by a more ominous fear of illness at least, and in rare instances, death. According to the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, only one in 150 people will even be aware they’ve been infected. The first human case of WNV in B.C. was con-

firmed late last August, but it is the most widelydistributed vector-borne disease in North America. Paul Hasselback, medical health officer for Interior Health, says there’s still a lot about the ecology of WNV in B.C. that we don’t know. However, he said more than 200 mosquito samples have been collected so far this year across our province and all have been negative. There are about 50 species of mosquitoes in B.C., and not all feed on birds as well as humans. That’s critical, because the mosquito capable of transmitting WNV to you with a bite, likely picked it up by feeding on a bird first. For some reason, birds in the corvid family such as jays, black birds, ravens and magpies, are

vestigate wherever there are large numbers. Many mossie species need several blood meals before they are able to lay their eggs. (Incidentally, it is the female of the species biting you, not the male, who feeds instead on nectar from flowers.) Hasselback believes when the infected mosquito turns to humans on which to feed, it’s more likely to be later in summer when there are fewer birds available, because its preference is for avian blood rather than human. But it may also turn to horses, and they do show symptoms of the infection, so that is sometimes used to locate an outbreak. Entomologist Hugh Philip says our wetter spring this year means many lower areas had standing water in them, which would have allowed eggs laid over the past two or three years to hatch. The first few stages of a mosquito’s life are

in still water. Heat moves that development along faster than cool weather. It can shorten the larval stage. They can develop in more than just a pond or slough, but also in water barrels, stagnant water features, water in an old tire or birdbath, saucers under flowerpots or even a tarp. So, eliminate such sources of mosquito breeding sites on your property, and use repellents containing the active ingredient DEET to help prevent bites when out at dawn or dusk or when outside hiking. And, plug any holes in your screens, to try and prevent them from getting into your bedroom. For more details on West Nile Virus, go to www.bccdc.ca/default. htm and click on West Nile virus.

â–ź HEALTH

Take the time to choose your health care providers wisely

H

ow important is your health to you? I’m sure that seems to be a rhetorical question, but it’s still an all-important one. Your health care team is equally as important as they are the consultants you have hired to assist you in your pursuit of health and wellness. These days, health care is consumer-driven, or as my profession like to call it, patient-centered. I’m sure this is true for most health professionals. When I speak of health professionals as consultants, I am referring to your medical doctor, your physiotherapist, massage therapist, acupuncturist, dentist, doctor of chiropractic and the like. These are people you hired and retained for the sole purpose of assisting you in your wellbeing. It is paramount that you have a good rapport and comfortable relationship with these practitioners as you are trusting them with your most valuable asset. Therefore, I think it is important that you interview them and evaluate their care on an ongoing basis. Yes, I said interview them. We would interview a real estate agent, a financial planner, a lawyer or a baby sitter before hiring them. So why not your care provider?

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel Today, it is common practice for medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic and dentists to interview prospective new patients to see whether or not they will be a proper ‘fit’ into their practice and their personal philosophy of how they treat patients. You should do the same. Here are some basic points to remember when considering this interview with your perspective consultant. First, the business of health care is about communication. How much time does your practitioner spend with you? How much of that

time is spent listening to you and your concerns? If a practitioner seems hurried and not focused within the confines of the room, it’s clear that your care is not foremost. For instance, my medical doctor is truly excellent. She spends a great deal of time listening and asking thoughtful questions that are pertinent to my concerns. I think the success of all relationships can be reduced down to how effectively the two parties communicate. There needs to be a mutual exchange. If you leave the office feeling that you haven’t been heard or you have not been able to express yourself fully, it is time to move on. How current is your practitioner? Is he or she continuing to further their education and knowledge in their specialty? Do they seem current

with the research, or does it seem one-dimensional? I love it when my patients ask me questions. It means they are involved and active in the resolution of their problems. My patients will come to me with research they have read or ideas they are considering in an attempt to understand and treat their illness. Your practitioner should not be intimidated by your knowledge or your interest in contributing to your wellness. Does your practitioner routinely refer to other forms of therapy? Are they open to other forms of complementary alternative care? Remember this: No one practitioner is the silver bullet in all forms of health care. I routinely refer to massage therapists, acupuncturists, podiatrists, dentists, medical doctors

Challenge heating up for playoffs Ex-Rocket PCSL last regular game goes Sunday. Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With the playoffs beckoning, the Okanagan Challenge couldn’t have picked a better time to be on a roll. The Challenge will put its four-game Pacific Coast Soccer League winning streak on the line Sunday against the firstplace Vancouver Thunderbirds in the final game of the regular season for both clubs. Kick off at the Apple Bowl is 3 p.m. With the game having no bearing on the final standings, Challenge head coach Clint Schneider isn’t as concerned with the outcome as he is with getting his team aptly prepared for the post-season. “Obviously we would like to play well, but this is really an opportunity to rest guys that need

some rest and to play guys who haven’t seen a lot of the field this season,” said Schneider. “I truly believe we have the best team in the league right now. I don’t think we’ll use this as a measuring stick as much as we will a chance to tune up for the playoffs.” The Thunderbirds (11-1-2) have long since sewed up top spot, while Khalsa Sporting Club (94-1) will finish second, the Challenge (7-6-2) will take third, and the Victoria Highlanders, fourth. That means the defending champion Challenge will battle Khalsa in the semifinals of the PCSL championship July 24 in Coquitlam, while the Thunderbirds play Victoria. Schneider is confident the Challenge have left all of their early season woes behind them after a 2-6-1 start. In the last four games, Okanagan has shutout Vic United (2-0), Vic High-

landers (2-0) and Kamloops (4-0), while winning by forfeit over Athletic Club of B.C. Schneider said a confident group bodes well for the playoffs. “The guys are playing with a lot confidence and we’re on a roll,” he said. “If we continue this into the playoffs, we’re in good shape.” Schneider credits some of the recent turnaround to the resurgence of Alex Keller and Roman Doutkevitch as genuine offensive threats—the two have combined for five goals in the last three games. And with just one goal allowed in five games, the Challenge are also taking care of business in the home end of the field. “The guys are gelling in the back end and (keeper) J.D. Blakely has been very steady, too,” Schneider said. “For the whole team, I think the key word right now is belief.” whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Hope flickers for Premier A’s The Okanagan A’s are down but still not officially out of the B.C. Premier Baseball League playoff picture. In their first year under a new name and colours, the A’s will wrap up the regular season this weekend as they host the Victoria Eagles for three games at Elks Stadium. Saturday’s games go at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., while Sunday’s finale is set for 10:30 a.m. At 13-28 the A’s are in 10th place, but with three wins over Victoria still have a mathematical shot at the post-season. However, they would need a little help. The top seven teams will make the PBL playoffs, with the eighth and ninth place clubs to playoff for the final berth.

Parksville (15-23) and North Shore (1524) currently have the inside track on eighth and ninth spots. “It’s a slim possibility, but it’s still there,” said A’s coach Evan Bailey. “If we win all three of our games, then we have a shot. Those two teams have some tough games left to play.”

JUNIOR A’S

The Okanagan junior A’s are in North Delta this weekend to start the BCJBL championship tournament. The seventh-seeded A’s will battle North Shore in their opening game Friday at 3 p.m. On Saturday, Okanagan meets the Vic Eagles and Abbotsford with both games to

be played in Abby. The final of the eight-team tourney goes Sunday at 3 p.m. The A’s, who finished tied for sixth during the regular season, qualified for provincials thanks to a 9-3 sudden-death win over the White Rock Tritons Wednesday night at Lombardy Park. Jake Maters earned the win, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings. Michael Tongue picked up the save throwing 2 1/3 hitless, scoreless innings. James Ward drove in two runs on a single and a double and scored once, Alex Ballingall had two singles driving in one run and scoring once and Dawson Yates had a double and two RBIs.

From Kelowna to Massachusetts to Saskatchewan to Texas. Few coaches in hockey over the last four years have been as well-travelled as Jeff Truitt. The former bench boss of the Kelowna Rockets has accepted an assistant coaching position with the San Antonio Rampage, the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes. Truitt, 45, has spent the last year as the director of hockey operations for the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors. “It all comes down to the opportunity,” said Truitt. “It wasn’t planned, it’s just that when these opportunities come along you have to take a serious look at them. We made some good strides (in Moose Jaw) and I’ve enjoyed it here. But this job was a good fit and it’s a chance to get back into pro hockey.” Truitt spent seven seasons as a coach in Kelowna, the last three as the head man. In 2005, he led the Rockets to the WHL title and a berth in the Memorial Cup. Truitt’s first pro job was with the AHL’s Springfield Falcons where he served as an assist in 2007-08, then as head coach in 2008-09 before being relieved of his duties late in the season.

Jeff Truitt A year away from the bench made Truitt realize he missed the coaching business. “I did miss it, being right there in the middle of the competition every night,” said Truitt, who will assist Rampage head coach Ray Edwards. “I was hired in Moose Jaw to do a job and hopefully we moved some things forward behind the scenes. But it all came down to getting back to the AHL, hopefully I can help them in San Antonio and it will help me in my career moving forward.” Truitt will see some familiar faces in San Antonio.

Osaduik sets course record in Midsummer 8K Steve Osaduik left the rest of the field in his wake on the way to setting a course record at the Kelowna Running Club’s Midsummer 8 K. The Langley finished first by nearly three minutes among 203 runners on a hot Sunday morning in the Mission, posting a time of 24 minutes 57 seconds. Vernon’s Trevor Jordan was second in 27:45, while Kelowna’s Trevor Haaheim took third overall in 28:09. Osaduik entered the Midsummer 8 k with an impressive running resume. Among his ac-

complishments is breaking the course record at the Royal Victoria Marathon in 2006—in a time of 2:16:47—a mark that stands to this day. The top female finisher Sunday was Rachael Ruus from Richmond with a time of 30:01, with Gina Tessmann from Winnipeg finishing in 31:30, and former Kelowna runner Shannon Thompson, now from Surrey, taking third spot in 31:46. In addition to Haaheim, three other Kelowna runners cracked the top 10: Gerrad Lewin was fifth in 29:11, Glenn Lear placed sixth in 29:21,

while Mike Schmidt was 10th in 30:43. Along with Haaheim (35-39) and Lewin (2029) other age group winners from Kelowna were: Pamela Glendinning (4549), Diane Milner (5054), Shawn Baezinger (65-69), Diane Leonard (65-69) and Chelsea Yuill (16-19). The Midsummer 8K, race No. 8 of the Interior Road Race series and No. 13 of the provincial Timex series is run through the streets of the lower Mission area with the start and finish at the Mission Sports Fields on Lexington Road.

Falcons host Sox at Elks The Kelowna Falcons’ pursuit of first-place Wenatchee in the WCL’s East Division continues Friday night as the teams open a three-game series at Elks Stadium. Heading into Thursday night’s action, Kelowna had won five in a row and was tied for second with Moses Lake, 3 1/2 games back of the Apple Sox. Kelowna played in Walla Walla on Thursday, while Wenatchee took on Moses Lake. For up-todate scores visit www.wccbl.com. On Wednesday, the Falcons boosted their win streak to five with a come-

from-behind 7-4 win over the Sweets. Down 4-0 in the top of the sixth ,Jesse Sawyer belted his league-tying fifth homer of the season after Keegan Acker walked. Sawyer also hit a double for the second straight game and has recorded eight hits in the last four games. In the seventh, the Falcons struck five times as Reyn Nagamine hit an RBI double and Aaron Jones punched a two out, two-run single to put the game out of reach. Despite giving up four early runs, Brandon Creel settled down to pick up his third win of the year

and Jordan Westra nailed down the ninth for his sixth save and second in as many nights. Three Falcons pitchers—Creel, Jacob Brown and Westra—struck out 11 Sweets batters.

Heat amped up for provincials TheKelownaRambow Mechanical Heat hope their best ball of the year has been reserved for this weekend at the B.C. bantam A girls fastball championship in Cloverdale. The Victoria Devils and White Rock Renegades (94) head in as the favourites in the 16-team provincial field, with action beginning Friday morning. The Heat, the defending provincial B champions, stepped up to the A level this season for better competition—and that’s just what they’ve found. “It’s been a really good learning experience for the girls,” said head coach Bernie Penner. “At this level, there are no longer any easy games. One mistake, one error or one walk can change an entire game. We don’t have the luxury of blowing teams out any more. Every game is tough…it’s been good for the girls.” And the Heat have fared reasonably well in their first crack at A ball. Kelowna won the Ridge Meadow tournament earlier this summer. Then two weekends ago, the Heat turned in a solid performance at a tourney in

ders we can be there with the top teams.” With two pitchers over 6-feet tall who can throw 60 mph or more, it’s easy to see why Victoria has established itself as the favourite this weekend. And according to Penner, White Rock can be equally as tough. With Victoria hosting the Canadian bantam A championship next month, the Devils have an automatic berth into nationals. B.C. gets three berths into the championship, making the Heat’s objective this weekend crystal clear. “That’s what we’re shooting for, a top-three finish but we need to get off to a good start,” Penner added. “It’s whoever gets on a roll that’s going to have success. Once you get into the playoffs anything can happen. I think the girls are ready.” The tournament draw is being made on Thursday night with action starting Friday at 8 a.m. No fewer than six teams—depending on round-robin records— will make the playoff round with the championship final to be played on Sunday.

Ex-Owl Jones joins Heat v’ball The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyball squad will feature a definite Kelowna Owls’ flavour next season. Former KSS player Kailin Jones is the latest local talent to sign on with the Heat for the 2010-11 BCCAA campaign. Jones joins Owls teammate Chandler Proch who also recently committed to UBCO. Following an outstanding high school career, Kailin is expected to challenge for playing time and will add depth to the libero position alongside returning starter Lenai Schmidt. The transition from high school to university ball should be a rather smooth one for Jones, who has been practicing and playing with several of the Heat players for a few years now. She describes the girls on the team as “really outgoing” and notes that it “won’t be hard to feel like a part of the team.” But for Kailin the benefit of her Heat experience will come from more than just the players on the court. “Steve (Manuel) is an amazing coach and I can’t wait to

play for him.” “Kailin will bring an extra edge to our backcourt,” said Heat coach Steve Manuel. “She is a tremendously tenacious defender with a great ability to figure out opposing hitters’ tendencies. Having watched and worked with Kailin for several years now, we know that she is ready for the next level” Jones, a Kelowna Volleyball Club member, was a part of the B.C. under-18 team where she received accolades for being one of the top defenders in the province. She also served as captain for her high school team where she was named a B.C. all-star. Jones will continue her run of volleyball excellence by representing B.C. at the upcoming 2010 National Team Challenge Cup this July in Winnipeg. Jones also has a background in beach volleyball where she represented the Okanagan at the 2008 B.C. Summer Games. During her stay at UBCO, Kailin plans to attain her Science degree in either biology or biochemistry with the eventual goal of becoming a physiotherapist or lab technician.

Prepare to have your breathe whisked away by Cirque du Soleil Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It may not be under the big top, but whenever a Cirque du Soleil show roles into town one can rest assured a breathtaking performance will follow. This summer Kelowna will be one of only seven Canadian stops for the Alegria tour. Originally conceived of when the company started in 1994, Alegria was designed to play under the big top, but has been adapted for small arenas like Prospera Place, allowing the show to travel. Don’t take the word “adapted” to mean any of the show’s je ne sais quoi will be lost in translation, the show’s director of creation said. “It’s mainly just the technical. We redid the set and the lights and sound…(but) for the rest, for the content of the

show, it’s the same,” Carmen Ruest explained. In this case, that means acts like the flying man, the fire-knife dance and the power track will still go on, just as they would under the full circus tent. In fact, the power track act was invented specifically for the Alegrai performance. “We wanted to have a trampoline,” said Ruest. “But it’s hard to bring a trampoline artistically on stage.” The solution turned out to be a system of drawers under the stage floor which open to reveal a bouncy-surfaced tumbling track in an “X” formation, which allows the performers to flip along and over one another in rotation. “It’s beautiful. They jump so high and they do such beautiful choreography,” Ruest said. The acrobats in Cirque du Soleil come out

of gymnastics and have usually run the course of a sport career before starting into the company’s 16 week intensive training. The coursework includes instruction in dance, music, acting, rhythm and mask workshops, taken with up to 50 other artists. The Montreal-based company now employs some 5000 people between their various touring shows and big top setups, including musicians, dancers, singers and so forth and their performers tend to stick around. The average age is 37. Designed as family entertainment, shows like the Alegria performance have clowns who work the crowds pre-curtains to keep the little ones entertained on their way in and a musical score with something for virtually every taste—from jazz lovers to pop, tango and even klezmer. Alergia has been touring for a year in this for-

mat and is one of 21 shows currently performing throughout the world under the Cirque du Soleil name. Not surprisingly, the acrobats often switch shows, auditioning for and accept positions within the company, or inventing their own acts, throughout their career. Ruest said each show can be thought of as a creative cell where artists train and perform daily, constantly adapting and refreshing the material. For the smaller shows, like this one, there will be eight or so performances per week and the show moves each Sunday, meaning the artists are constantly on their toes. Alegria opens in Kelowna on Aug. 25 in Prospera Place and runs through Aug. 29. Tickets can be purchased on line at www.cirquedusoleil. com. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Sorcerer’s Apprentice light entertainment

T

he summer movie season has been in full swing since May and we have had our fair share of “popcorn” movies. The latest, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, opened on Wednesday and is another good example of the summer blockbuster. It stars Nicolas Cage, is directed by Jon Turteltaub and is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the team behind the National Treasure movies. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is inspired by the animated short in Fantasia featuring Mickey Mouse and also stars Ottawaborn Jay Baruchel and Alfred Molina. Cage plays a sorcerer who recruits Baruchel to help him stop his archnemesis in modern day Manhattan. Full of special effects and magical action, it is sure to entertain the family, but do not expect anything more than that. We are going to see a summer blockbuster with a little more substance to it this weekend—Inception. Since his featurelength debut with Following, writer-director Christopher Nolan has proven that he is one of the most talented filmmakers in the

His next film, Memento was brilliant— an engaging thriller about a man with short-term memory loss, the story of which was told backwards in time. His followup, Insomnia, was ironically named because, even though it had a good story and a strong cast, it could actually put you to sleep. He rebounded after that with Batman Begins, which is my favourite superhero movie of all time (yes, I liked it better than the more successful sequel The Dark Knight). Between the two Batman movies, Nolan directed The Prestige, a moder-

ately successful movie about two competing magicians. Although, not a blockbuster, it continued to show Nolan’s strengths as a storyteller. His latest movie, Inception, opens this weekend, and without having seen it, it will continue to show that Nolan can balance substance with mass appeal. He has assembled an impressive cast lead by Leonardo DiCaprio and includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Marion Cotillard, Pete Postlethwaite and Michael Caine. And

even though it looks like a cross between The Matrix and Dreamscape (a 1984 thriller starring Dennis Quaid), its story of a world where technology exists to enter and exploit people’s dreams creates the possibility of a movie that could be wholly original. Although I love Nolan’s work and think he ranks with Spielberg and Scorsese as a filmmaker, I want to be careful not to raise people’s expectations too high. One of the reasons why I was not as fond of The Dark Knight as I was Batman Begins was because

of the hype prior to its release. Although everything about the former was as good as it gets, it did not live up to the attention it received and I do caution that Inception might disappoint some people in the same way. However, it is a popcorn movie with substance and it will not only do well at the box office, but will eventually become a cherished addition to Blu-Ray collections everywhere.

MAIN SWITCHBOARD

ot that we should need a reminder anymore living in the Central Okanagan, but the danger of forest fires hit home again this week. First came the fire in Seclusion Bay, which carried the potential to spread both into West Kelowna and/or Peachland. Then on Thursday, at the same burned-out terrain torched by the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park fire, another spark was ignited at the south end of Lakeshore Road in Kelowna.

In a routine that is becoming the norm for us during July and August every summer it seems like, people were evacuated from their homes or vacation lodging. One house was lost in the Seclusion Bay fire, while the damage from the Upper Mission fire didn’t include any property loss. But both fires reiterate how important it is to take whatever fire safety steps and precautions you can if you live in an interface area near the bush. And it is also a sad remind-

er that some of the fun of camping outdoors, so readily accessible to us in the Central Okanagan, has been dampened by need for campfire bans. That there are still people throwing cigarette butts out their car windows while driving in those interface areas is still frustrating to witness. That laziness is not worth ignoring when you consider the stress and emotional upheaval it causes people to first experience the need to evacuate their homes due to a fire, and to actually see

those flames turn your life upside down by the incinerated damage left behind. So to borrow a famous line from the ‘80s television show police drama Hill Street Blues, take to heart the words of the sergeant speaking to his shift of cops heading out for duty” “Let’s be careful out there.” For all the wet and cold weather we’ve had over the past month, we’ve seen this week how two or three days of plus-30 C temperatures can change the fire hazard so quickly.

Member of the British Columbia Press Council

With final numbers coming in, were Olympics worth it? B

y now you may have seen the updated version of the B.C. government’sYou Gotta Be Here advertising campaign. Created to promote visits to the Olympics and aimed mainly at the U.S. audience, the first round of TV ads featured actors Michael J. Fox and Kim Cattrall as well as basketball star Steve Nash and other high-profile B.C. products. The post-Olympic TV ads are now running around North America as well, but they have a more domestic flavour. Speed skater Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, skier Ashleigh McIvor of Pemberton and Paralympic skier Lauren Woolstencroft of North

Vancouver won’t ring too many bells in New York or Los Angeles. Cranbrook’s favourite hockey player Scott Niedermayer holds up his gold medal and then a golden glass of B.C. wine, his face recognizable for U.S. hockey fans but possibly not as heartwarming as it is for us. And once again, the world is advised of the location of The Best Place On Earth. Now that the books have closed on the 2010 Olympics, the question remains whether B.C. got its money’s

worth. The answer still depends to a large extent on what will come of the ads and the rest of the exposure B.C. generated with its two weeks in the global Tom spotlight, but at least Fletcher the cost side is in. The direct cost to B.C. taxpayers is $925 million. That includes the province’s initial $600 million budget to stage the Olympics and an extra $165 million to top up the ballooning security budget once the RCMP took control of it. The last chapter was revealed Fri-

day. It’s an accounting of $160 million to cover the bureaucracy known as the Games Secretariat, cocktail parties for VIPs at Vancouver’s posh Terminal City Club, community torch celebrations, “live sites” around the province and millions that the B.C. Liberal government pitched in to add dazzle to the opening ceremonies. Debate about the costs has raged for years, not just about the marketing efforts but the costly decisions to ramp up the SkyTrain, highway and convention centre upgrades to get them ready in time. “This chump-change cost estimate is an insult to the taxpayers of British Columbia because it doesn’t

include the Olympic-sized spending blowout on projects promised in the original bid,” said Maureen Bader of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. “We know the convention centre, the Canada Line and the Sea-to-Sky highway upgrade together cost almost $4 billion—it’s time the government admitted these were Olympic costs and give taxpayers a full account of the Games.” Finance Minister Colin Hansen insisted last week that the highway and convention centre were committed to before Vancouver was awarded the Games. As usual, he sidestepped j See Fletcher A21

Drivers need tips

▼ INSPIRATION

To the editor: I read Barry Gerding’s column: You’re Taking Your Life In Your Own Hands On Our Roads, (July 11 Capital News) and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know what it is about the drivers in Kelowna but the three most common transgressions I find here are: 1 Not stopping at stop signs. They are more like a yield sign here 2 Running amber lights or even turning when it is red 3 When making a left hand turn onto a two-lane roadway they turn into the outside instead of the inside lane. One thought that I have is maybe the local papers and the radio station could incorporate a, Driving Tip Of The Day. The papers could put it out with each issue and the radio stations could air it two or three times a day. I am sure there is no shortage of driving tips to fill a segment. Possibly if the people heard or read these tips enough times they might, just might, pay a little more attention to their lack of proper driving skills. John Grant, Kelowna

To the editor: On April 19 while I was travelling north on Highway 97, my vehicle completely shut down electrically at the lights at Banks Road. My hazard lights did not work so consequently I felt very exposed and vulnerable in the middle lane of traffic. As I waited for a tow truck I tried to direct traffic around my wounded vehicle. I felt bad that I had caused this inconvenience for other motorists but that bad feeling was about to change. A young man pulled right up behind me and, thinking he did not know that I was stuck there, I went over to explain that he would

Future Shop – Correction Notice

Good Samaritan at right time have to go around me. He said “No, I have put on my hazard lights for you.” Feeling enormous relief and gratitude, I thanked him. He quickly assessed the situation to find out what was wrong and to see if a tow truck was on its way. He put the hood of my car up so people would see that it was a mechanical break down. When I said that I felt bad that I was causing this inconvenience to other motorists, he said “Don’t worry, people should just learn to be patient.” He stayed with me until the tow truck arrived, even helping direct traffic so the tow truck could get into position.

What could have motivated this young man, who was a complete stranger to me, to act in such a kind and compassionate way? I offered him money for his help which he adamantly refused. Could it be that he was truly just a kind and compassionate young man acting in a kind and compassionate way? All that I learned about him in our brief time together in the middle lane of traffic on Highway 97 was his name and that he was a fairly new resident of Kelowna from Edmonton. Yes, what I learned about him was a “little” but what he taught me was

“great.” I saw in action what it truly means to be a good neighbour. So, for those of you who chose to yell out your window at me as you drove by and for those that were agitated for having to pull around me, I do apologize for those 10 seconds out of your lives that I cost you. But to you, Darren Borys, wherever you are, thank you! Our paths will probably never cross again but this act of kindness and neighborliness that you displayed on my behalf will not be forgotten. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Velma Feeny, Kelowna

‘Egotistical racket from disrespectful yahoos’ To the editor: Earlier this spring I heard that the Kelowna RCMP was having an initiative to check on the improper tinting of vehicle windows. I know there are laws with regard to tinting but much bigger problems exist here with regards to noisy vehicles. The tinting does not affect the citizens as does the offensive

noise. It is nearly impossible to have the windows open in the house day and/or night because of the noise created by vehicles with no mufflers, noisy muffler add-ons and motorcycles. The noise is so great that while waiting for a walk light one day last week, a sleeping baby in a buggy was awakened and stared screaming

when one of these illegal vehicles came screaming through the intersection. There are laws regarding the noise of vehicles. It is most often the case that these drivers speed as well, I guess to draw attention to themselves. We, the law abiding citizens of Kelowna, should have the right to sit outside and converse

or sleep with a window open in the warm summer months without having to put up with all the egotistical racket that these disrespectful yahoos bring to our streets. Sir, please consider an initiative to penalize the offending drivers of these vehicles and motorcyclists. Carol Gautier, Kelowna

▼ HEALTH CARE

Elders haven’t made health care expensive To the editor: I keep hearing that Canada’s aging population is isolating our health care funds. In the early 1960s a valiant lady named Mary English began her campaign for a legal lottery or a sweepstakes in Canada, the profits to be used for the benefit of hospitals and the care of the sick. After a long struggle she presented her petition to Pierre Elliot Trudeau, minister of justice at the time, and she thought she had achieved her goal. The profits from such a lottery would have given Canadians the best health care hospitals in the universe. But when our beloved leaders saw the

amount of profit to be made from the venture they decided that a portion of that money would buy a lot of votes from special interest groups. The biggest portion would be put into general revenue from which politicians draw their pensions, their pay raises and little perks like world travel. There would be some left over for health care. Will Canada’s aging population break the health care system? I don’t think so. I firmly believe that money spent on travel to photo ops by Premier look-at-me-I’m-so-pretty Gordon Campbell would buy many prescriptions

and prostheses with funds left over for some bedpans and retention catheters. I am old and because of many prescription medications I keep getting older. I am a burden to the health care system but please tell me, if health care covers the disposal costs of unwanted, unborn potential taxpayers, then why are there no gas chambers for people like me? Just think what our beloved leaders could do with all that pension money. Look-at-meI’m-so-pretty could pose for photo ops on the moon as he looks for evidence of something environmentally green (cheese perhaps?) Clara E. Campbell, Kelowna

▼ 2010 OLYMPICS

Benefits just starting to come in Express yourself Fletcher from A20 the extra cost of accelerating these projects, which in the case of the convention centre ended up doubling the bill to almost $900 million. Hansen makes a point that is often overlooked, in provincial budgets as well as the Olympic project. There’s a difference between money spent on

a shiny new transit line that fills with passengers each morning and money spent on a VIP reception. Most of the Olympic cost went to build tangible things, including a waterfront athlete’s village that will eventually pay off handsomely for the Vancouver taxpayers who bailed it out. The crucial measure can’t be made yet, but

there are hints. Not long after Beijing handed the torch off to Vancouver, Canada finally got approved travel destination status with China. And soon after that, Air Canada and Air China began adding flights between the countries. This is just the beginning. Tom Fletcher is Black Press legislative reporter. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

▼ MLA’S REPORT

Reflections on a year of progress for Westside-Kelowna I t’s hard to believe my first year as MLA for Westside-Kelowna has passed and the summer is upon us. After many months of sitting in the B.C. Legislature, I now have the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time in my riding and reflect on all that we’ve accomplished in the last year. Despite the volatility created by the global economic crisis, B.C. has weathered the economic downturn extremely well. Our deficit is $1 bil-

Ben Stewart lion less than projected last September, and we have continued to invest record levels of funding in health care and edu-

cation. The newly introduced Harmonized Sales Tax will also contribute tremendously to B.C.’s economic recovery by creating a competitive tax structure that will attract investment and create a climate suitable for businesses to grow and prosper. Continued business growth will strengthen our economy and create jobs for British Columbians. Your tax dollars are hard at work in your community as there are a

number of projects happening in the WestsideKelowna riding. Most recently, I announced construction will begin on the Westside Road Interchange in early August. Not only does the new interchange create 250 jobs, but it is a game changer for all future economic development on the Westside and for the Westbank First Nation. Over this past year, there were significant other investments, thanks to cooperation and collab-

oration between the federal government, the province and local partners. The Westside Wastewater Treatment, that serves Peachland, West Kelowna and the Westbank First Nation, received more than $7 million for upgrades. Additionally, $3.4 million was allocated to several parks throughout the area to provide additional recreation and leisure amenities for you and your family. Kelowna is also quickly becoming a hub

for health care in the interior of the province. The new clinical teaching building at Kelowna General Hospital, home of the Southern Medical Program, is now complete and ready to begin training doctors. Further, the first-ever cardiac procedure was performed at Kelowna General Hospital, marking the first time a percutaneous coronary intervention has been done anywhere in the province outside of the Lower Mainland and Victoria. Also, on Feb.1 a new state-of-the-art radiation therapy treatment unit and a brachytherapy suite was officially opened at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s Centre for the Southern Interior, which will help more patients from our community get better cancer care, closer to home. As well this year, we saw the largest sporting event ever in B.C. when

our province hosted the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Our community came together in celebration as we cheered our Canadian athletes on to win recordsetting gold medals. Thanks again to the Westbank First Nation for donating the wood used to build the podium on which Canada’s first Olympic gold medal on home soil was celebrated. And who could forget, right here in West Kelowna and Kelowna, we hosted the Olympic torch along its 45,000 km, 106day journey. It’s been quite a year but there are many more good things ahead of us. I am honoured to represent Westside-Kelowna and look forward to continuing my work in making B.C. the best place on earth. Ben Stewart is the Liberal MLA for WestsideKelowna.

Lifeguards competed at H2O competition For the first time in four years, a lifeguard competition was held in Kelowna as the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan hosted the Lifeguard Competition at the H2O Centre last weekend. Ten teams traveled to Kelowna to compete with Maximum Bather Load, a team from Coquitlam, winning the event. “Our goal was to bring teams together from other communities to enjoy friendly competition and to test each others lifeguarding, first aid and fitness skills,” said Shawn Bourgoin, H2O’s aquatic manager. “As an employer of over 80 young people working as lifeguards/instructors at H2O, this type of event is great for team building and ensuring our staff’s safety and rescue skills are of the highest level.” The sponsors of the event included Solo Smart Energy Bar; Dirty Dog Sunglasses Canada; DB Perks; City of Kelowna; and BC Safety Products Ltd.

DUST BOWL…

With the winds experienced across the Central Okanagan earlier this week, all the ground scraped along Ferry Wharf Road has become a source of dirt which is blown in the wind towards Kelowna. Attempts to spray water over the disturbed ground cover to minimize the airborne dirt has not been an effective deterrent so far. JUDIE STEEVES /CAPITAL NEWS

Nature’s Fare Markets

Normal aging symptoms are not the same as dementia “Is it Alzheimer’s disease?” That question is being asked more frequently by Kelowna residents, espercially as they age. t It’s natural for people to wonder if memory issues are an early sign of Alzheimer’s, says Phyltlis Dyck, regional support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. But there is a big difference between normal aging and the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and related dementias, she said. “Approximately 40 per cent of people over the age of 65 experience some form of memory loss,” she explains. When there is no underlying medical condition causing this impairment, it is known as “age-associated memory impairment,” a part of the normal aging process. “In general, a memory problem may become an issue if it begins to affect your day-to-day living,” adds Dyck. “Most older adults do not go on to develop Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.” Not being able to remember small details of a conversation or event that took place a year ago, for t

example, is a normal part of aging. But not being able to recall details of recent events or conversations could be a sign of a problem. Similarly, most people will occasionally have difficulty finding words, which is no cause for alarm, but if the problem shows up as frequent pauses and substitutions when finding words, a medical checkup might be advisable. Not all symptoms of Alzheimer’s are related to memory and language. Difficulty concentrating or problems with orientation can also be indicators. “If you have any concerns, talk to your family doctor. He or she may be able to rule out other causes.” To further help Kelowna families coping with the impact of Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia, the society runs support and information groups locally, one for family caregivers and the other for persons in the early stages of the disease. For information, contact Dyck at the Alzheimer Resource Centre, 865 Bernard Ave., call 250860-0305 or email pdyck@alzheimerbc.org.

Cadillac CTS puts some sport back into the wagon segment Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

CONTRIBUTED

CADILLAC is steadily expending this CTS range of luxury mid-size vehicles from a sedan to a coupe and this, the 2010 CTS Sport Wagon that carries all of the signature Cadillac styling clues like the bumper to roofline vertical LED taillights.

So nice, I drove it twice. In early January, I drove the 2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon and found it so good it was a natural for the newly created Canadian Automotive Jury Best of the Best Award for Automotive Excellence. The Best of the Best is judged by (arguably) Canada’s 10 top automotive writers/broadcasters, of which I am one. More information can be found at www.thecanadianautomotivejury.ca. What makes this award different is it recognizes a “family” of cars, not one specific new model as the overall best of the best. The just released Cadillac CTS Coupe joins the Sedan, the 556 hp CTS-V and Sport Wagon (as tested here) offering rear- or all-wheel-drive, three engines and, well you get the picture. There is a Cadillac CTS for just about every taste.

The CTS debuted in 2002 as one of GM’s first returns to rear-wheel-drive vehicles. It was an attempt to go after younger, more affluent buyers and followed a failed earlier attempt with the Catera. The breakaway styling by Wayne Cherry, with razorback lines, big forward sloping grille and signature upright head and taillights, set the CTS very much apart from what GM was offering back in 2002. Instead of one engine, there are now two in the form of a 3.0-litre DOHC V6 producing 270 hp and 223 lb/ft of torque. As tested here, the other is a 3.6-litre DOHC V6 producing 304 hp and 273 lb/ ft of torque. FYI, the CTSV comes with a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 with 556 hp and 551 lb/ft of torque. Standard transmission is a six-speed automatic. The CTS is available in rear—and all-wheel-drive as distinct models instead of AWD being an option. In the case of this See Cadillac B3

There’s a Cadillac for every taste week’s test vehicle, it is the CTS Sports Wagon 3.6-litre AWD with base price of $53,790 and $64,735 with all options not including a $1,420 shipping fee for a total, as tested price of $66,155. In this (as tested) drivetrain configuration, fuel consumption is 11.7L/100 km city and 7.4L/100 km highway with a cruising range of 570 km. The Sport Wagon debuted last year and really stood out with its bumper to roofline rear LED taillights. The hard, straight character lines are retained as are the functional engine bay hot air extraction gills on the fender below the A pillar. As a specific model, the 3.6 AWD wagon features a brace of sumptuous standard features like wood interior trim, sports suspension, heated and cooled front seats, high intensity headlights that swivel in turns, BOSE 5.1 surround sound with 40 GB hard drive plus a bunch more stuff too numerous to mention. And speaking of those standard features, one that stood out was the new thin back front seats that are super supportive while creating more rear knee room. Open that powered liftgate and it reveals 720 litres (25.4 cu ft) of cargo

space, double that of the CTS sedan. With the rear seats flat, that more than doubles again to 1,643 litres (58 cu ft). And you’ll appreciate the rail-mounted tie-downs. Part of the $8,720 Preferred Equipment Group is the double sized UltraView power sunroof with full sliding power sunshade as fitted this week’s tester. In terms of safety, the Sport Wagon has everything like six air bags, stability control and traction control. The station wagon architecture makes for one of the safest vehicles you can ride in. Volvo is a prime example. In the first 100 meters you can feel the solidity of the Sport Wagon. In truth, part of that is due to the weight that, in this case, is 1,955 kg or 4,310 lb. The power assisted steering reacts quickly to inputs but is slightly numb on centre which many people like. The four big disc brakes are more than up to the job of hauling the Sport Wagon down. In addition to ABS, it is fitted with Panic Brake Assist and Dynamic Rear Brake Proportioning. Thanks to the high shoulder line of the door, the driver is placed down and into the middle of the instruments and controls See Cadillac B4

Optional GPS a nifty feature Cadillac from B3 which is one of the reasons why European sports sedans and wagons are so much fun to drive. My tester came equipped with a nifty monitor of the optional GPS navigation system that normal stows behind the upper section of the centre stack. Press the “up” button and it glides into place. It also doubles as the screen for the backup camera. Cadillac offers owners a choice of six leather colours. My tester has the “Cashmere” hue that was matched by saddle beige interior trim along with wood inserts on the dash and all four door panels with wood used for the upper rim of the steering wheel. One of the cool features is the standard Memory/Personalization Package. Not only does it remember the setting for the position of the driver’s seat in each of the two keys, it also remembers the seat exit position, exterior mirrors settings, climate control settings and radio station pre-sets. But wait, there’s more. This feature also allows the driver to program his/her name, the twilight Sentinel delay, remote activation verification, perimeter lighting, auto door lock mode, delaying door locking, passenger window lock out and chime volume. One of my journeys took me to Mosport Racetrack for an event to raise funds for the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame. I took back roads all the way that roll and wind through long stretches of

wheat and cornfields and, thankfully, devoid of traffic. The body of the Sport Wagon rides low and I feared damaging the front fascia on potholes but the suspension took care of everything and I can tell you that I was really moving. Most owners will never be racing their Sport Wagons on the track, although I am sure the 3.6 AWD would be surprisingly competent. Where this vehicle will live is on the highways or suburban streets where comfortable, long-legged cruising and ease of operation is what the owner needs and wants. And if you want, it can tow up to 1,000 lb (454 kg). This wagon really stands out in a crowd which is what I would want in a premium automobile costing more than sixty grand. And, with almost 1,700 litres of cargo capacity, it makes for the kind of useful utility you just can’t get with a sedan.

Kia and its sister company, Hyundai, want to be seen as leaders in sustainable mobility by developing leading edge emission-free vehicles. t EcoDynamics is Kia’s new sub-brand that will be tapplied to the most ecofriendly cars within each fKia model range. Under the new EcoDynamics sub-brand, Kia Motors began last year releasing a new green tvehicle every year for the next four years starting with the propane hybrid Forte LPi now on sale in Korea. “Eco Dynamics” comrbines “eco” from “ecology” (nature and environment) and “economy” (efficiency) with “dynamics” r(energy and vitality). During a recent tour by Canadian journalists of Kia’s research facilities at Namyang, Kia revealed some of vehicles either coming to market or being studied. The Optima Hybrid will make its debut in North America late this tyear. It uses a full hybrid system, with a clutch and ta six-speed automatic transmission connected to the engine and an electric motor, allowing the vehicle to run solely on the electric motor at low speeds. What makes it different from other hybrids is its use of a lithium-ion polymer battery that does away with most of the drawbacks of lithium-ion battery packs. In 2012, Kia Motors plans to launch its first plug-in hybrid model, equipped with its proprietary Flexible Hybrid System (FHS) and boasting the highest level of fuel economy in the world. FHS expands the

range of the electric motor, using two motors and planetary gearing. It also features a continuously variable transmission that raises the range of control at the optimal driving level, thereby dramatically enhancing fuel economy. By replacing a few parts (higher battery power, rechargeable system and power cable) the vehicle can be turned into a high-output plugin hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). In the meantime, Kia Motors also plans to develop a PHEV that can be recharged at homes. In short, Kia plans to respond proactively to North America’s ZEV (zero emission vehicle) laws and regulations. Kia Motors is planning to launch a compact electric CUV in 2011 that brings together existing and newly developed EV technologies. This compact CUV model will be equipped with a highperformance lithium-ion polymer battery and an EV-specific electric power component. It will be a multi-purpose vehicle, well suited for urban driving as well as light cargo transport. Kia Motors is also working to secure safety and reliability by building a sophisticated system that eliminates risk factors posed by high-voltage electric components. Kia Motors has been engaged in developing fuel cell technologies since 1988. In 2009, Kia succeeded in developing the Borrego FCEV, which features a 115-kW fuel cell stack, the world’s most powerful, and a next-generation energy storage unit known as a super capacitor. The fuel cell stack is built into the FCEV under the floor for even weight

It was deja vu all over again driving the 2011 Buick Regal from Vancouver to Kelowna. Some 13 years ago I drove the then new 1997 Regal over the same road and with the same codriver, the Toronto Star’s Jim Kenzie. Back then, you had a choice of a 3.8-litre normally aspirated or supercharged V6 in the 1997 Regal and Regal GS respectively. It was a solid performer that was stoutly built giving great value for the dollar which, frankly, at that time, a lot of GM

vehicles did not. For instance, my neighbour has a 1997 Regal GS he uses as a daily driver. With more than 300,000 km on the clock the heads have never been off and he has yet to have a major mechanical failure. Built in GM Canada’s Oshawa production plant for much of its life in the first generation, the Regal was so good it was named as tops in quality and owner satisfaction in 2003 by no less an authority than J. D. Power and Associates. Interestingly, the Regal

2010 your last chance to get a Mitsubishi Galant ES Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

Say hello to the 2010 Galant. I could probably convince you that this is a brand new addition to the Mitsubishi lineup. That line has worked on a few people when I introduced them to this car. But the Galant has actually been around in one form or another since 1969. Some of its Canadian market predecessors will ring a bell—the Dodge Colt, Plymouth Cricket, the Eagle 2000GTX. And a few of the kinkier offshoots in its past have included a GTO version, a rally-inspired twin-turbo VR-4 model and even a kitted-out AMG version, created before that race-tuning company was absorbed by MercedesBenz. Over the years, the Galant has evolved from compact car beginnings through nine generations of change and evolution to its current midsize form. “So why haven’t I seen it around?” you might ask. Oh, you’ve seen it. You just haven’t noticed it. The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is a fairly capable, five passenger, four door, front-wheel-drive, midsize

sedan. But, although Mitsubishi dutifully boasts of “singular styling and performance,” the Galant has remained relatively anonymous with a generic exterior design and an interior to match. And in the important midsize market, “fairly capable” just doesn’t cut it. The Galant has to compete with contenders like the new Ford Fusion, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. Not to mention the new Hyundai Sonata, Mazda6, Nissan Altima, and Chev Malibu. The list goes on and on with competitors at the top of their game in a match with no mercy rule. As late as last year, Mitsubishi gave the 2009 Galant a final push with a standard four-cylinder ES model and two V6-powered offerings including an available Ralliart sport package. For 2010, the Galant model selection has been scaled back to a single engine, single trim level ES model. It harnesses the 2.4-litre, SOHC, MIVEC four-cylinder engine that make 160 hp at 5500 rpm and 157 lb/ft of torque @ 4000 rpm. This engine pulls well enough to get the job done. See Galant B9

THE 2010 MITSUBISHI GALANT, is a midsize sedan offered in a single trim ES package with fuel-efficient fourcylinder power and a respectable list of included features and standard equipment. CONTRIBUTED

MOTORING

capital news B9

In the midsize sedan market, ‘fairly capable’ doesn’t cut it Galant from B7 It is smooth on the highway and cruises around town at a sedate 1500 rpm or less with power translated through a four-speed, Sportronic automatic transmission. On the rare occasions when another Galant would pull alongside, I could hear the familiar four-banger cadence from under the other car’s hood but inside the cabin everything seemed relatively quiet. Fuel economy is rated at a very respectable 9.8/6.6L/100km (city/hwy). I averaged a comparable 8.9L/100km in a combined mix of driving conditions. For 2010, the one-shot Galant ES model has been upgraded with some of the trickle-down add-ons from previous packages. tActive Stability Control /(ASC) and Traction Control (TCL) are now standard. The blacked-out headlamps, side air dams, rfront and lower grilles are all new. And new 16-

inch alloy wheels with P215/60R16 all-season tires replace the former entry-level steel wheels. Inside, a new black cloth interior seat fabric replaces previous multiple choices and it is complemented by a new black woodgrain trim. Mitsubishi has also added an auxiliary audio input jack to the audio system. Those new additions have been tacked onto a long list of standards that include four-wheel ABS disk brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD); six airbags; a MacPherson strut (front) and multilink (rear) suspension; colour-keyed, dual heated power side view mirrors and variable intermittent wipers; as well as standard halogen headlamps; manual air conditioning; a six-way adjustable driver seat; cruise control; a power group of electric windows, door locks and trunk release; tire pressure monitoring system; and the Mitsubishi 140-watt six-speaker AM/FM/CD/

MP3 audio system. The gauge cluster is

well laid out and the cabin is comfortable enough,

with stretch-out room in front and in back.

I suppose designers could have tried to renew

the Galant with the Evoinspired Lancer styling.

When turbo comes you’ll select your preferred suspension Regal from B8

vailing road conditions, vehicle movements and individual driving style. Regardless of which mode you choose, the system has the ability to “learn” the driver’s habits and adapt to enhance driver inputs. The standard wheel is an 18-inch alloy but the Interactive Drive Control model brings larger 19-inchers. The chassis of the new Regal is 25 per cent stiffer than the last one which, in its day, was a leader in this

department. In truth, Buick had to do this because today’s buyer, especially the younger more affluent target demographic, is familiar with ride and handling of Audis, BMWs and Volvos. So it made sense to tap into GM’s German subsidiary, Opel, for a platform that competes headto-head on the same market. Buick found what it was looking for in the Opel Insignia the 2009 European Car of the Year. The Insignia has garnered

more than 39 prestigious awards and is the bestselling mid-size sedan in Europe. In my opinion, the Audi A4 currently defines the essence of what a true “European sports sedan” should be. It is tight, responsive, fast and you can get four adults in with no hunching. Making it a double case of dÈj‡ vu with the Buick Regal was riding with Canadian Product Manager, Fred Dixon. Dixon is 42, and as things would have it, he grew up in the same part of Missis-

sauga (Clarkson) where I worked. I must have seem him back in the day. More to the point, he is six-feet, two-inches tall and I doubted if he would fit in the back seat when he drove with Kenzie and I. Fit he did, and along the way, his passion for the Regal was evident as he pointed out a number of little things one might miss at first glance. An example was the little red lights around the outside of the speedo gauge that illuminate to follow the needle as it swings around the gauge face. I drove both the 2.4-litre and the turbo and found the latter to be substantially quicker. With 86 more lb/ft of torque, the way it digs in for passing is as good or better than a whole lot of V6s on the market and why Buick ruled out the need for larger engines. The 2.4-litre,while not a road burner like the turbo, is more than adequate for a vast majority of drivers. On long stretches of Highway 1 near Kelowna there were endless conga lines of motor homes. Whenº it comes to passing, in any car, you have to judge your space and time. With a stab on the gas, the 2.4 kicks down smartly from sixth to third and picks up the pace with alacrity. In the turbo, you don’t have to second guess to make it. With the optional IDC, the Regal defaults to Normal with a buttons for Sport and Tour on the centre stack. If you turn on Sport or Tour and then switch off, the system automatically goes back the Normal mode. Frankly, I couldn’t feel much of a difference between the three although I didn’t try to push the performance envelope on the open road with all the summer tourist traffic. Dixon told me, and I believe him, that the difference is palpable once you get familiar with the car and it starts adapting itself to your driving style. For me, the car is just fine without it. The interior reflects the lessons learned and put into play by the “New” GM. It is sumptuous without being overdone which used to be GM failing. With an all-black interior showing its German heritage, I found the saddle beige leather seats and black upper instruSee Regal B11

tion system and the Bluetooth phone. The faceplate for the “infotainment” screen is set at a 30-degree angle to contribute to the car’s flowing interior design. Part of this new Buick design approach is also seen in the satin metallic, piano black and new, Kibo-patterned interior trim materials. Kibo is a rich, dark, progressively grained wood. I’ve saved the exterior

ment panel a nice blend of Euro-American which, again, you never would have found in a GM a decade ago. Buick has re-thought its approach to interior design and in the Regal you find this in integrating new technologies.

styling for last. This is a very handsome car, and I don’t mean pretty, the complex lines of which don’t come across in photos. Just look at the way the rear spoiler is integrated into the rear deck and you know the designers were calling the tune which is as it should be. Along with the LaCrosse and Enclave, the new Regal brings a new face as well as a new spir-

it into Buick showrooms across the country. Already the top selling mid-size car in Europe, and a runaway best seller in China, I’m betting dÈj‡ vu is again in the offing for the 2011 Buick Regal.

Marian Winford (nee Boyd) Marian passed away on July 11, 2010 leaving many close friends and family. She was born in Chilliwack to Jordan and Isobel Boyd, devoted elder sister to Shelley, Cindy and Cam. She grew up in Sardis before leaving for her first of many travel adventures to Europe, Asia and beyond. Whilst traveling to Australia she met Peter, they married and lived in Malaysia before returning to Canada to start their family. She was a devoted mother to sons John and Craig whose love she treasured until the end. She made wonderful homes in White Rock and Kelowna before finally returning to South Surrey. For Marian a strong loving family, having fun, making lifelong friendships and sharing her love for life were the most important things. She was overjoyed when John and Denise recently decided to come from Australia to be married at home. She loved to travel and felt cheated that she was not able to continue that dream in her retirement years. She leaves behind so many close friends and family both in Canada and Australia. She loved her time working with seniors at Sunnyside Manor and Whitecliff in White Rock, as well as Hawthorn Park in Kelowna. Marian was loved by so many who came to know her. She made friends wherever she worked. Our heartfelt thanks for the compassionate care she received from her oncologist at the Fraser Valley Cancer Centre, the surgeons and nursing staff in Peace Arch Hospital surgical ward and especially Dr. Joshi and the nurses in the palliative home care program. If you would like to remember Marian please donate to the BC Cancer Foundation or the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. Please join us in a celebration of Marian’s life which will take place at Sunnyside Community Hall 1854, 154th St, Surrey on Sunday July 18th at 2 pm.

Nicholas went to be with the Lord on July 8, 2010. He was born March 29, 1931 at Weasel Creek, Alberta to Peter and Katie Kaban. Nicholas spent his early years helping on the family farm and with the family store in Weasel Creek, Alberta. After graduating early at age 16, he set out from home. He worked on the railway and was stationed at Prince Rupert. There he contracted tuberculosis and was hospitalized for 5 long years. During his stay at the sanatorium in Tranquille, Nicholas met the love of his life, Frances Doering. They were married November 30, 1957. Nicholas had several interesting positions. He was: head of security for Eldorado Mining in Uranium City, manager for Sears, owner of a wholesale men’s wear company, owner of a junior hockey team, the first business development manager for Canada Trust, head of housing for the non-status Indians for British Columbia and owner of a natural gas company in Alberta. Nicholas was a generous, outgoing, charismatic man. He gave freely of his time to be an advocate for many people and a passionate warrior for many worthy causes. He served on boards of non-profit organizations and churches. He was always immersed in politics and worked tirelessly behind the scenes his entire life. Nicholas and Frances raised their children Cathy and Mark in the Okanagan. Nicholas was the biggest fan of his children and grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Frances Kayban, who passed away January 10, 2010. He is survived by his family; Cathy (Murray) Richter, Mark (Veronica) Kayban, grandchildren: Michael and Sarah Richter, Nicholas, Abrielle and Luther Kayban; sister Victoria (John) Toronchuk; brother Peter Kaban; mother-in-law Mary Doering; sister-in-law Hedy Doering and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Nicholas will be deeply missed by those who knew him. A Memorial Service will be held on July 23, 2010 at 11 a.m. at First United Church, 721 Bernard Ave., Kelowna, B.C. with Reverend Medland officiating. Donations may be made to the Cancer Society. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
