Officials rescinded an evacuation order for the area late Friday afternoon and it was expected the Districts of West Kelowna and Peachland were going to cancel their states of local emergency. Earlier in the day, officials said the mop up was 90 per cent complete, and crews were focused on taking down hazardous trees to ensure the safety of residents upon their return. As people head back to their homes and vacations, they are being reminded that hazardous conditions may still exist on private properties and

The fire, which grew to 30 hectares, destroyed a home, two garages, a boat and a police vehicle. Fire officials say the blaze was started after windy conditions knocked a tree onto a power line.

Fire crews were called to Elite Auto Centre on Enterprise Way shortly before 11 a.m. and arrived to find heavy black smoke coming from the service bay area. “One male working on site was caught in the explosion and was transported to Kelowna General by BCAS (paramedics) with undetermined injuries,” said assistant fire chief Thomas Doherty.

The cause of the explosion and fire was still under investigation Friday afternoon, but preliminary witness reports indicate a worker was using a plasma cutter on a 45 gallon drum of windshield washer concentrate when it suddenly exploded, said Doherty. The fire was contained to one area of the service bay, but heavy smoke permeated the entire service bay area. Damage to the building had not been determined Friday afternoon.

AT THIS TIME last year, flames were encroaching on the Gorman Brothers sawmill in West Kelowna (above), while helicopters (left) complemented the air tankers’ attack on the flames.


Fires revive memories of last summer Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR


hen smoke billowed up from the Seclusion Bay fire, Ron Gorman was among many to see an unpleasant reminder of an anniversary just a week away. The wildfire that started July 18, 2009, changed his life. In part, because his home was reduced to cinders that day but also because employees of his family business, the Gorman Brothers’ sawmill,

provided a communitygalvanizing image from the disaster. Instead of running for cover, many threw themselves into the line of fire to ward off flames poised to burn down the mill. If not for their actions, the Gormans could have lost everything. Through that experience and the year it’s taken to rebuild, Gorman says he’s learned a lot about what’s important in life. He also learned how to be more proactive

against a threat that seems intent on returning to the Okanagan year after year. “You know, I grew up here and there were never really any fires. Then there was 2003, and now it’s 2009 and 2010 —what’s happening to our valley? Fires never came this close to houses,” he said. ••• When the Seclusion Bay fire broke out Monday morning across Highway 97, Gorman and his employees were ready. “One brother got in

his truck and drove to Seclusion Bay to make sure people knew to get out,” he said. “I ran to the log yard, because we just saw what happened at Tolko (last weekend in Salmon Arm), and if logs catch on fire, it’s impossible to put out.” Luckily, “it turned out to be an excellent drill” where all involved were more equipped to ensure the business’s safety, he said. Since last year’s fire Gorman has bulked up on

safeguards. Two new fire hydrants were installed and the crew rallied to use them as soon as smoke appeared. After all, they had some experience to put to use. “That was remarkable …about 25 to 30 people just saved the place by doing everything right and doing it safely,” he said. “They were putting out the many small fires …the fire department doesn’t have that many people, so when that fire was raining down lots of

embers, my employees were there to put out those fires.” His house didn’t have the same chance that time around. Once the trees shading it went up in flames, there was nothing anyone could do to protect it or the memories inside. Admittedly, those issues didn’t weigh on him during Monday’s events. “My mind was really on the drill,” he said. “And I must have one of the safest houses in the Okanagan. We have a

metal roof and there’s not a tree around.” He’s also made sure that the new house has nothing else nearby to fuel any future fires. While the house has been more safely rebuilt, the process of starting over without some of the memorabilia of years’ past has weighed on his family. “That, I’m convinced, has been hardest on my wife,” he said. “It was easier on me, the business See Memories A4

was injured. “But I think it’s tough to lose all of the things you can’t get back. “For example, after the fire, my youngest daughter said to me, ‘Did you get Queen Elizabeth back?’ And I didn’t.” Queen Elizabeth was the stuffed bear she had had since childhood, and it’s something Gorman said he would have saved. “We didn’t take much out so, if I had advice, I’d say get the pictures, documents and some mementos,” he said. “Then again, if there’s a theme, it’s that here we are, it’s a year later and we’re happy. Everything has improved. Life goes on in good ways and while you focus on what you lost in the beginning, you eventually start focusing on the future.” •••

Auto insurance advice you can trust.

Focusing on the future, and the potential for another fire, is why West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlator decided to not plan his regular holiday this summer. “We had a wet May and June, and I thought this might buy us some time,” the West Kelowna mayor said. “Then I went to Westside Daze, and after a month and half of rain, I was walking (on the grounds), and it was a dust bowl,” he said. “I had to go out of town (for work) for one day, and I thought, that should be OK. A mayor’s place is in his town, when something like this happens,” Findlator heard about the Seclusion Bay fire at around 11 a.m. Monday while he was on his trip, and started to make his way back home as the day’s action unfurled. The fire created so

much havoc, that 67 residents and tourists were displaced until the emergency evacuation order was rescinded Friday afternoon. The fire is now 100 per cent contained, and the mop up is 90 per cent complete. One Seclusion Bay home was lost during the blaze. But early on, there was no way to know how that would have turned out. Findlator said his wife packed up their home’s valuables and spent the rest of the day outside, waiting to see if the fire would spread in their direction. “Now I’ve spoken with dozens of others who were out and about when the fire happened and this was scary for them. It was deja vu—here we go again,” he said. ••• Due to dry conditions, most of the Okanagan is

at a high risk of fire, explained Elise Riedlinger, a forest service fire information officer. To date, there have been 17 wildfires, 16 of which were person caused, and 61 hectares have burned. Strangely, that’s good news compared to previous years, as the 10-year average for this time is 216. While fewer fires have been sparked, the big concern is what will happen once there is ignition. Numerous papers have been published explaining the risk of wildfire is on the rise due, in part, to the amount of debris left on the forest floor. A downturn in the timber industry coupled with an environmental crisis is putting Okanagan cities at risk of forest fires, according to a 2009 report titled Looking at the Problem. “Across the whole province we have seen the fuel hazard increase over time,” said author and forestry economist Tom

Hobby, in a previous interview. There are about 1.7 million hectares of forested land littered with an excess of beetle-dead wood and biomass. In this climate, especially the dry and hot days of summer, that biomass turns into fuel for wild fires. While there have been efforts made to clear some of the shrubs or beetle killed trees away, that work hasn’t been tackled fast enough. While about 95 per cent of forested area falls within Crown lands, the current economic situation and the onerous costs associated with the cleanup have made it impossible for government bodies to take on the task entirely. The fact the timber industry has faced such dire conditions hasn’t helped either. Now that there is little profit in weaker wood strains, there’s no reason for them to cleanup on their own dime. To that end, Hobby offered some solutions which include working with forest companies and within the tenure system so bio-energy firms can gather low-value resources. “It would move the economy into new markets, of bio-fuel and bioenergy, and that would help pay the cost to create new economies to clean up the mess.” Hobby also suggested there are ways for communities to reduce the risk of spreading wildfires— among them, clearing a perimeter between cities and forests. While some have looked at Hobby’s report as a doomsday scenario, he stressed that’s far from the case. “It’s a science report to help communities better develop community wildlife protection plans,” he said. “We’re not going to be See Memories A5

CLOSE-UP Memories from A4 able to eliminate fires, but we have a better chance of controlling them if we do some treatments. ••• The advantage of less brush on the forest floor was made evident Thursday when flames revisited the site of the Okanagan Mountain Fire. Early in the afternoon, two small grass fires, estimated to be one hectare apiece, returned to the area where 238 homes were leveled in 2003. Thomas Doherty, Kelowna assistant fire chief, explained the grass fires moved slowly this time around, and revisiting old territory helped stop its spread. “It definitely made a difference…there’s not a lot of fanning fuels here,” he said, noting the nearest structure was a couple hundred metres away. By the end of the day the fire spread to about 10.6 hectares, but was contained and not a risk to

nearby homes. ••• To ensure safety is improved, Findlator would like to see more of the recommendations of previous studies applied to his area of concertn. “It just doesn’t seem like programs are well geared to reducing fuel… they’re all about creating economic activity to employ the unemployed,” he said. “Lives and property are at risk. And just think of the cost of fighting fires—the cost of the water bombers, bird dogs and helicopters they employ are millions of dollars. More work needs to be done. The District of West Kelowna applied for funding from the province to do fuel mitigation, and other than one project grant for $70,000, the rest were turned down, he said. Findlator also pointed out that there’s an issue of private land, and no government is going to do

fuel mitigation there. “That’s the responsibility of the homeowner,” he said. “We encourage people to get rid of overhanging branches and get rid of their wood piles… a lot of education is being done, but bigger pieces of land have a bigger challenge.” One thing that may help reduce issues with interface fires is that Westbank First Nation has a tree forest license that straddles the city from one end to the other, Findlater said. “It goes right to the Peachland boundary, so while nobody wants to see a clear-cut, there will be some fuel reduction.”

According to the B.C. Ministry of Forests, their efforts have reduced the risk, although a representative stressed that this kind of work will take time. “Since 2006, the Provincial Fuels Management Working Group has allocated $644,755 from the UBCM fuel management fund to nine community wildfire protection plans, treatment prescriptions, and fuel management projects located in the Central Okanagan Regional District and West Kelowna area,” a representative said. “West Kelowna currently has an allocation of $70,430 from the UBCM

fuel management fund for the development of a 100 hectare treatment prescription. “Although some com-

panies operating in the West Kelowna region may have applied for Job Opportunities Program funds and Community

Adjustment Funding, the District of West Kelowna itself has not.”

WHAT’S IN A NAME? 1 Kings 9:3 The LORD said to him: “I have heard the prayer and plea you have made before me; I have consecrated this temple, which you have built, by putting my Name there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.” I had a professor in College who would not begin to teach unless he had pronounced everyone’s name correctly. He would say a name as many times as it took to get it right. He told us that a person’s name was more than a label; it was a symbol of who they were and that, in a name, one could tell a lot about a person. While this may not be universally true for names, I think it does carry a lot of weight. Names are important to people for many reasons and, in the case of Faith, the ways with which we refer to God can have great impact on how and what we believe about Him. We call God by many different names. We read all of these names throughout the Bible and we choose the ones we use based on situations we are in or ways that we are feeling. Some of the names denote the power of God; some tell us about love and the goodness of God, while others try to explain the wonder and majesty of God. They are names such as Alpha and Omega, Messiah, Wonderful Counselor, Yahweh, Immanuel, Lord, and the list goes on and on. But in all these names, no matter which one we use, we are calling on the One in whom we put our trust and our faith. The names we use for God are a proclamation of who we believe Him to be. God’s name is a special thing and it is to be used in special ways. In the scripture quoted at the beginning of this article, God makes a promise to Solomon. God promises that He will put His Name in the temple forever. It is important to Solomon that God show He is pleased with the building of the temple in some way. So God sets His name there and, in this way, God shows us the importance of His name. His name is a description of who God is and how He acts.

In my column last month, we looked at the beginning of the Lord’s Prayer. As we continue to move through it, we go from the introduction into the first petition. The introduction, if you remember, tells us that God is our Father and that we can talk to Him as a child talks to their father. As Jesus teaches His disciples to call God ‘Father’, He also tells us that we can call God by the name of “father.” However, we must learn how to treat that name. How are we to call on our Father and deal with the names for God? This is addressed for us in the first petition. When we pray the Lord’s Prayer, we say, “Hallowed be thy name.” This somewhat odd turn of phrase means, ‘Father, let your name be holy’. The German idiom used here means to praise, extol and honor, both in word and deed. Luther tells us that, “God’s name is certainly holy in itself, but we ask in this prayer that we may keep it holy.” We pray that we may be able to honor the name of God and praise Him in all we do and say. We are asking for the ability to follow the second commandment, which states, “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.” It is easy to use God’s name in inappropriate ways, such as in a curse or in swearing. We hear it used wrongly in our culture all the time. Our children learn to say, “Oh God” or “Jesus Christ” when they are exasperated or upset or just to be funny. These phrases are used in movies and on TV, and they become such a part of our vernacular that we don’t even realize how often it slips out. It can be a very hard habit to break. Sometimes though, we use God’s name as a front for something that is not really honest or does not honor God. We may do or say something in the name of God that is not really part of God’s plan, or does not fit with His Word. When we do this, we have profaned Him. As sinful humans,

we learn throughout life that we use the name of God inappropriately in both word and deed. We cannot help but use it inappropriately. However, Luther explains how we hallow God’s name so that we may follow in those ways too. He says, “God’s name is hallowed whenever His word is taught in its truth and purity and we as children of God live in harmony with it. Help us to do this, heavenly Father!” In his explanation, Luther asks God to help us keep His name holy because if we rely on our own volition, we cannot do so. Through the teaching of Jesus Christ, we are taught how to use God’s name rightly in ways that do not harm and tell the truth about who God is. When we do this, God’s name is hallowed. God does not need us to do this but He has chosen us each to spread His name throughout the earth! Keeping God’s name Holy is not always easy but our Heavenly Father promises to help us so that we can praise, extol and honor Him with all of the names we use for Him in all our words and deeds, as we remain as always… In His Grip, Pastor Karen If you would like to learn more about God’s names and His amazing love for you, you are most welcome at Grace Lutheran Church. We worship together on Sunday mornings at 10:30. We also offer a Children’s church at the same time, so your children too will know the love of Jesus in their lives!

Fleeing culprit nabbed Police say a man who allegedly fled when officers tried to arrest him in a stolen vehicle will return to court next week. The incident began Tuesday, when officers spotted a Ford that had been reported stolen and followed it to the Dairy Queen drive-through on Highway 33. “When police tried to arrest the male driver and female passenger, the vehicle fled, endangering motorists and pedestrians as it escaped,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “Police did not pursue because of the dangers posed by the fleeing suspect vehicle.” Police instead patrolled the area and came across the vehicle a short time lat-

er as it approached a home in the Findlay Road area. After parking the vehicle, the occupants walked away, unaware they were being watched by police. Officers brought in a police dog to assist in the arrest of the man and the woman, both 22-years-old. The woman was later released without charge while the man, Andrew Martindale, appeared in court. He’s charged with breach of probation, possession of stolen property over $5,000, mischief under $5,000 and assaulting a police officer. He’s scheduled to be in court again Thursday.

parking tickets, which allows drivers to save $25 if they pay their parking tickets right away. There is still one exception to the rule, however. As the city is planning to do a major parking plan for the downtown core, metered parking will see a reprieve. Hence, if a car receives a ticket outside the downtown core, it will automatically incur a full $30 fine. Those that receive tickets while parked downtown will still have 24 hours to pay the fine at the $5 amount before the ticket amount rises to the full $30.

Recyclables and unwanted items for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Reuse-it program will also be welcomed at the site during the same hours, seven days a week. All residential materials that were accepted in the past are still being accepted at the centre. The same tipping fees apply based on weight. A number of improvements have been made to this temporary location over the past few months, added Rotheisler. The garbage and drywall disposal areas were expanded to accommodate larger collection bins and more drop off lanes. The areas for yard waste and construction wood waste drop off have been more clearly defined with lock blocks and some of the key access roads have been paved to reduce the impact of dust on adjacent neighbours. “In the months ahead, we’ll continue to refine and landscape this area,” he said. Friday also marked the start of the process to close the Westside Landfill. From now on, garbage, yard waste and construction wood will be taken to the Kelowna’s Glenmore Landfill, now the only active landfill for the Central Okanagan.

Judge weighs remorse in jail term for slaying of mom, toddler Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Calling the killings “horrendous,” “brutal” and “reckless,” Justice Barry Davies sentenced 29-year-old Nicholas Coopper to life in prison without parole eligibility for 20 years for the second degree murder of Karen Smith and 15 years in jail for the manslaughter of her toddler, Ayden. The sentences will run concurrently. Had it not been for Coopper’s remorse, he would likely have been sentenced closer to the maximum term of parole ineligibility for the second degree murder of Karen, which is 25 years, said Davies. “It is only his remorse expressed almost immediately and still that leads me to conclude there is hope for rehabilitation here,” he said. “But that hope must be tempered and rational, and it must recognize the past and the reality of the circumstances.” Coopper had finished an eight-year sentence for manslaughter shortly before these killings, and had a violent past well before that conviction, spending most of his adult life in prison. “Prison has not helped him. It has probably, unfortunately, exacerbated his tendency toward violence,” said Davies, adding that Correctional Service of Canada “failed” him in the past. Coopper struggled with drug use in prison and those issues continued after his release. “His addiction and use of those illicit drugs were at the root of this offence,” said Davies. On Dec. 16, 2008, Coopper was abusing alcohol and crystal methamphetamine in “copious quantities” as he baby sat 20-month-old Ayden. “In that intoxicated state, when Ayden began to cry, Mr. Coopper became irritated and struck Ayden,” said Davies. “He was severely beaten and it resulted in his death.” Davies said he could think of no greater abuse of authority than to kill a defenseless young child.

KAREN SMITH and her toddler Ayden. Coopper tried to cover up the killing, Davies noted, by putting a stuffed animal in Ayden’s bed and the boy’s body in a garbage bag and duffel bag. When 28-year-old Karen returned from work that night, Coopper did not tell her about the kill-


ing. Instead, after she went to bed, he decided she should not have to suffer the knowledge of her son’s death and bludgeoned her with a barbell before strangling her. Karen’s death was discovered by her mother af-

ter Karen didn’t show up for work the next afternoon and Ayden’s body was later found by police. “I will miss my daughter and my grandson every single day and they are in my mind every single day,” said Marla Smith outside court. However, she said she was relieved that the court process was over. Calling the sentence “very fair,” she said she hopes Coopper does take the opportunity “to get better.” Marla has forgiven Coopper and said she has done it for herself, not Coopper. “To go through life hating someone else takes so much energy and it changes the person that you are. And I like the person that I am,” she said. Coopper’s lawyer, Donna Turko, says he does not plan to appeal.

Film industrialist here to get investors for 3D technology Barry Gerding EDITOR

The Okanagan film industry has an opportunity to get a head start on the 3D revolution that has sparked a resurgence in the movie industry. Kerner Canada Inc. is looking for investment support to create a home base for 3D movie production, 3D capture systems and related 3D technologies and services. Next week, the man-

aging director for Kerner’s new start-up Canadian subsidiary, Gavin Wilding, will be here to entice potential investors into the financial world of 3D, seeking to raise a $2 million investment in venture capital for the project. Wilding, a former movie producer, said the promise of 3D has brought a renewed “wild, wild west” mentality to Hollywood that is filtering through the film industry across North America.

The success of Avatar at the box office as a commercial and critical success in 3D filmmaking has been reinforced by the success of other films that have enjoyed box office success as well. “I look at a film like My Bloody Valentine, which was one of seven movies to come in 3D in the past year. Next year there will be 30 movies in 3D and the year after about 60,” Wilding said. “That movie cost

about $14 million to make and probably would have gone straight to the shelves of Blockbuster Video stores. But because it was presented in 3D, the film did $110 million.” Besides the consumer connection between presenting a movie in 3D and making money, the other advantage for film producers is their films can’t be downloaded on the Internet and distributed for free. “The established busi-

ness model for making movies just doesn’t make sense any more. Paying the cost of producing a movie doesn’t make sense if people can download it for free,” he said. “The media world is changing rapidly and the old standard way of doing things doesn’t exist anymore. You have seen it happen in the music industry, where the decision has been made to allow the music to be downloaded for free and to focus on making money from the concert side of the business. But there is a limit to how many shows you can do in a year.” The free product aspect has created a similar chilling effect on Hollywood, Wilding said, but the possibilities of 3D technology has changed his industry. The new television flat screens are now being developed with 3D technology, and advances will continue to improve the quality and comfort of the 3D glasses. Wilding sees that re-

surgence as similar to the video craze that swept across the industry in the 1980s, creating both new revenue and filmmaking opportunities that didn’t exist before. “There was a scramble for shelf space back then to offer videos for consumers to watch at home. That same scramble now is happening with 3D as there is suddenly a demand for content and the lack of technological support to provide that,” Wilding said. “That will change in two or three years time, but right now is an opportunity for our company and Kelowna to get in on that process on the ground floor. There is a demand for the services we can provide that isn’t being met right now.” The parent company, Kerner Group USA, is actually a technological offshoot of Industrial Light & Magic, the special effects company that filmmaker George Lucas created from his profits of the Star Wars movies which

have become a legendary force in its own right for advancing movie technology. While movie makers are now experimenting with filming movies with 3D technology, it remains a relatively new phenomenon for movie directors. But films shot in a normal 2D process can be converted to 3D, although there have been questions raised by Avatar director James Cameron and others that the 3D experience is being marginalized by using that process. But Wilding sees 3D as the ultimate exclusive domain for original film production as the quirks in the technology are ironed out. “Our goal is to establish ourselves in Canada, but our secondary goal would be to see a film studio built that can accommodate 3D filming demands,” Wilding said. He feels to shoot two or three 3D movie projects a year in such a stuSee 3D A9

Familiar clothes left at b&e leads to arrest Parkinson Rec A man rounded up rafter a bizarre break and

enter earlier in the week will return to court on Monday, July 19. On the afternoon of July 12, a Summerland homeowner returned home to find his home broken into and his pickup truck, where a border collie was napping, missing. “Disturbing to the police was that among the stolen property was a gun locker containing three revolver handguns,” said Corp. Dan Moskaluk.

Police believe the suspect left the house only after serving himself a beer, having a shower and getting a fresh change of clothes—all cowboy style. “When our officer noted the missing cowboy clothes, and the familiar looking clothing left behind, an odd encounter with a young male… from earlier that day before the b&e was reported twigged in the constable’s memory,” said Moskaluk. When the two crossed

paths earlier in town, an overly talkative man explained that he was on his way to the Calgary Stampede before going on his way on foot. Witnesses reported that the man was last seen wearing a black shirt with Wrangler in pink writing, a cowboy hat, Wrangler blue jeans and cowboy boots. Then, on Tuesday, the man, who told people he wanted to be a professional rodeo star, was spotted

in the Kelowna City Hall parking lot with a truckwith a loud muffler and engine. As a bylaw officer approached the truck it suddenly left the parking lot and sped off around the corner with the dog, Spud, tumbling out of the pickup bed. The dog was no worse for wear. As police were called in to deal with the stolen truck, the man turned around and is believed to

have come back for the dog. Myles Ethier, of Carvel, Alberta, was arrested and police believe the missing handguns may have been sold off in the Kamloops area. Ethier, 22, was held in custody until Wednesday and is scheduled to be in court Monday on charges of break and enter and possession of stolen property over $5,000. The dog has been reunited with its owner.

Anne Kohlenz publicly thanked her heroes Friday. The 87-year-old Seclusion Bay woman, who was helped to safety Monday by RCMP Const. Ryan Routley and Auxiliary Const. Greg Barnard during the wildfire that blazed through the tiny Westside enclave, said while she was upset

she had to leave her home of 30 years, she was glad the officers came looking for her. “You’re my heroes,” she said to Routley and Barnard during a press conference in West Kelowna Friday. “You saved my life.” To thank the officers, Kohlenz’s family presented them with pocket knives inscribed on one side with their names and on the other with the

RCMP CONST. Ryan Routley (left) and Auxiliary Const. Greg Barnard (right) flank 87-year-old Anne Kohlenz, who they helped flee from her Seclusion Bay home during Monday’s wildfire. At a news conference Friday, Kohlenz publicly thanked the men she calls her heroes. words “My Hero.” But Routley and Bernard shrugged off the title of hero, saying they just did their jobs and what they were trained to do. Barnard, who has worked in the past as a volunteer fireman and helped fight the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park Wildfire, used his firefighting knowledge to help get the trio out safely via the lake. A boat plucked the rio off the beach when their route out was blocked by fire. “I feel fortunate everything turned out like it did,” said Barnard, who has been accepted into the RCMP training program in Regina and heads to the RCMP Academy later this summer. “It’s an added bonus the house did not burn.” He said fire crews dumped a lot of retardant on the house to keep safe. Members of Kohlenz’s

family were also on hand to thank the officers for saving her. “On behalf of mom and the family, we want to thanks the officers,” said Kohlenz’s daughter Anne Dixon, who presented the officer with their knives wrapped in Superman bags. “We thought that was appropriate,” joked Dixon. Routley said he and his partner found Kohlenz sleeping on her living room couch as they went door to door in Seclusion Bay on Monday telling residents Routley had to leave the area. After some difficulty waking her, the officers bundled Kohlenz, who is hard of hearing, into a police truck the road out was blocked by flames. That forced the trio to walk over the rough beach to a boat that had been dispatched to pick up them

up off the beach. Routley said despite her age and frailty, Kohlenz insisted on walking, refusing to be carried by the burly officers. Kohlenz said she was concerned leaving her home, a house that she had shared with her late husband. “I was very upset when I saw the police because I knew I had to leave my home.” According to RCMP Const. Steve Homes, spokesman for the local detachment, Monday’s rescue is an example of the work that emergency services personnel across Canada do everyday in this country. “As significant as this was, it’s a reflection of what happens in every scenario where emergency services personnel work,” he said.

Camp Mom-Needs-A-Break WELBOURNE


ike most parents, our children mean everything to us. They are the people we would do anything to protect and provide for, no matter what the circumstance. They are the ones we cherish and love like no one else, and whose lives our lives completely revolve around. So who would have thought sending them away to summer camp would be such a relief? “I want to go,” our nine year old son said when we first brought

up the subject. “But maybe more at the end of the summer.” “Yeah,” said our seven year old daughter, Daisy. “Right now’s not good timing for us, Mom.” “It’s just five days,” I explained. “Let’s try it at the beginning of the summer as a test. That way if you like it, maybe you can go for another week.” Working from home, it’s a challenge for me when school’s out. Selfishly wanting some time to work uninterrupted, I was well aware that I had an ulterior motive as I delivered my sales pitch. But I also remembered how much I wanted to go away to summer camp when I was young, yet never had the chance. Reading the flyer together and seeing all the fun outdoor adventures they could be having at camp, they started to change their tune. “Let’s do it,” Daisy said to her brother. “This looks like more fun than hanging out with Mom anyway.”

Camping, rock climbing, canoeing, mountain boarding, biking, hiking, swimming, archery and wilderness survival certainly aren’t the kinds of things they do with me on a typical work day. Or any day for that matter. As the date to leave drew closer, the kids became more excited, and so did we. But as much as we looked forward to their departure, as soon as they were gone we missed them. The first night we worried how they’d sleep, and wondered if Daisy would cry.

Has Gout Affected You?

Gout is an extremely painful condition that can effect people of all races and ages. It can effect both men and women but it is more common in men. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Classic signs of gout are swelling in the big toe, ankle, knees or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. SciMed Research is starting a research trial to evaluate a new investigational therapy to lower uric acid, the cause of gout. If you have been diagnosed with or suffer from gout symptoms you may qualify to participate in this research trial.

Has Gout Affected You? Gout is an extremely painful condition that can effect people of all races and ages. It can effect both men and women but it is more common in men. It is uncommon in children and young adults. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Some people have a genetic predisposition due to a disorder of purine metabolism. In these individuals attacks of gout can be triggered by eating foods high in purines and by consuming high quantities of alcohol. Others can have secondary gout. Secondary gout is associated with another medical condition such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, certain medications, particularly diuretics (water pills), salicylates (aspirin), and niacin. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settlles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Any joint can be involved. Classic signs of gout are pain, redness, and swelling in the big toe or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. A number of therapies are available. Some more successful than others. SciMed Research is starting a research trial to evaluate a new investigational therapy to lower uric acid, the cause of gout.

It means little to the seven-year-old, other than her dad leaving for four or five months of the year, but it has big implications for her family and the people of the new country she’s adopted. The year before her dad joined the DiMarias, of Mail Road, as a temporary worker, the farm was at a breaking point. No one could be found to help with the harvest during the boom time, leaving the family to do all the labour themselves. Asked if they lost any of the crop, Patti DiMaria shakes her head. “No, but it was close,� she says. “We pushed.

The film debuts at the Okanagan Film Festival, which begins this week and runs through Sunday July 25.

ication in a plastic bag beside their bed. Slippers and robes should be kept at the bedside for quick access. If you live in a large building find out where the emergency exits are located and where the gathering area is outside the building. Do not use the elevator in a fire emergency. Count the number of doors from your suite to the two closest emergency exits. Find out which doors in the building are the fire doors. Inform the manager of the building if you are not capable of going down the stairs or if you use oxygen within your suite. Let the manager know if you have a pet. Depending on what type of building you live in it is required by law that a certain number of practise evacuations take place. Participate in these drills because practise will help you remember what to do in an emergen-

cy situation. If you are not capable of getting down the stairs or able to get out of the building then get to a stairwell or on the other side of a fire door. When the alarm sounds immediately start your escape. It is required by law in the City of Kelowna that every home has a smoke alarm. If the senior is able to lift and properly use a fire extinguisher then the home should have one that is capable of extinguishing a realistic size fire. It too needs to be checked on a regular basis. If you have any questions about creating an evacuation plan, contact the fire inspector at the Kelowna Fire Department, 250-469-8801.

Construction to begin on Gerstmar Park As part of the 2010 Capital Plan, the City of Kelowna has partnered with the Regional District of Central Okanagan to develop Gerstmar Park, a community park bordering the Mission Creek Greenway. During construction, drivers may experience slight traffic delays at the intersection of Gerstmar and Springfield Roads. Access to the Mission

Creek Greenway from Gerstmar Road will be maintained. Improvements to the park include pathways, site furnishings, a playground, tennis court, a small parking area, native tree and riparian area enhancement, irrigated turf areas and tree and shrub plantings. This work is scheduled to be completed at the end of September.

A BOAT speeds toward one of the five villages of Cinque Terre, a quaint coastal region in Italy.

Wanna see lots of Europe in a week? Try a cruise Ann Tatko-Peterson CONTRIBUTOR

The appeal is in the numbers—seven days, three countries, 12 European cities and towns, and one room for the duration. Taking a cruise offers the chance to cover a lot of territory in Europe without the hassle of finding hotels, restaurants and transportation. It’s the sampler approach to visiting Europe. And boy, has it caught on. In 2011, Carnival will return to Europe for its first full season in three years when it debuts the Magic; Princess will add seven new routes and Celebrity will move all four of its Solstice-class ships—including newcomer Silhouette—to Europe for the summer. The biggest stakeholder remains Royal

Caribbean. The cruise line is increasing its European presence from eight to 11 ships next year and will cover 27 countries and 78 ports. Travelers have caught the European cruise wave. I decided to try it, too, so in May, my husband and I took a seven-day Mediterranean cruise out of Barcelona, Spain, aboard Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas. For convenience, it’s hard to beat the ports in Barcelona. They sit at the end of Las Ramblas, the city’s famous boulevard of shops, restaurants and street vendors. Las Ramblas winds through the city’s center and leads visitors to most of Barcelona’s famous attractions. After checking in for the cruise, there is time to visit the sights before the late evening departure. Royal Caribbean also offers pre- and post-

cruise tours for extended visits to the city. Our seven-day sailing included only one day with no port of call. We were smart enough to spend that day relaxing. We knew what awaited—four ports in Italy and one in France, with tours lasting up to 10 hours a day. I was wide-awake with the sun as our ship glided into Naples. For our first port of call, we joined a small group private tour, one of three new excursion options offered on Royal Caribbean’s European cruises. These tours allow guests to design customized half- or full-day excursions for up to 10 people. We put that theory to the test immediately when we discovered our Sorrento and Pompeii tour did not include a stop on the Amalfi Coast. Our guide quickly added the detour so we could

We walked under a canopy of lemon trees, used to make the region’s famous lemoncello, which we sampled later. I’ve never cared for lemoncello, until I tasted the velvety chocolate variety. It just goes to show, chocolate can make almost anything taste great. After a demonstration in cheese making, we indulged in a sampler’s plate that easily could have covered us for lunch. I’ll never eat mozzarella again without pining for Sorrento. That was especially true after our visit to Sorrento’s Piazza Tasso. Here my husband and See Europe A16 SIGHTSEEING & ADVENTURE TOURS

I shared a Caprese salad and salami pizza at a sidewalk cafe. Naturally, we chased it with genuine, creamy gelato—a treat that would become our daily indulgence. After lunch, we took more windy roads to Pompeii, an ancient civilization buried under ash and pumice when Mount Vesuvius exploded in 79 AD. The city was rediscovered in 1592 and is now 82 per cent uncovered. I’m not much for ruins, but Pompeii blew me away. The detail is exquisite, from the brick ovens, paved streets and underground water pipe system to the graphic fertility icons. Most startling

are the plaster casts of two skeletons. The fear expressed in their bodies is palpable, with arms raised to cover their heads and mouths opened to reveal their teeth. The next morning we disembarked at Civitavecchia and took a 90-minute bus ride to Rome. Raised Catholic, I’d always wanted to see the Vatican, so we signed up for the cruise’s Christian Rome excursion. I had researched the Vatican ad nauseam, leaving our other stop as a pleasant surprise. The Basilica of St. John Lateran was built in 314 A.D. by Emperor Constantine. Highlights include six papal tombs, a gorgeous carved ceiling and an oxidized bronze door

For our third day in Italy, we opted for an “On Your Own” excursion, where transportation is provided but visitors determine their own itinerary. First up: Pisa, or more specifically, Piazza del Duomo. I was instantly charmed by a scene straight out of a storybook.

The real gem for Christians is located across the street at the Palace of the Holy Stairs. Twenty-eight marble steps, now overlaid with wood for their protection, are said to be the ones Jesus climbed when brought before Pontius Pilate. Constantine’s mother, Helen, reportedly transported the steps from Jerusalem to Rome. Today, believers climb the steps on their knees, saying a prayer on each one.

colored marble accents. All three looked surreal. No wonder Italian writer Gabriele d’Annunzio dubbed the square the Field of Miracles. We spent most of our 45 minutes trying to photograph ourselves “holding up” the tower. From Pisa, we traveled to Florence, the city of art, leather goods and the author of a book about a puppet named Pinocchio. We ran into friends early on, who warned us about a four-block line at the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo’s statue David. (If you plan to visit, make reservations well in advance.) These friends also introduced us to Luca Misuri, a wellconnected tour guide who was a godsend. Misuri ushered us into Boccadama Ristorante, where we enjoyed a delicious prix fixe menu of salad, lasagna, bread and white wine for 16 euros. We asked Misuri’s advice about places to visit during our almost threehour stay. He marked the highlights on our map, including a side-alley shop, Vivoli, with perhaps the best gelato in Italy. The chocolate was like creamy fudge in a cup. We got our David fix by checking out the copy in the outdoor Piazza Signoria—also home to dozens of other statues and the Fountain of Neptune. We wandered toj snap photos of the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. We marveled at the stunning marble and scrollwork facade of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. We paid our respects at the crypts of Galileo, Michelangelo, Machievelli and a host of others at Santa See Europe A17

TRAVEL Europe from A16 Croce. Three hours passed too quickly, landing Florence on our must-visitagain list. Our final stop in Italy brought us to Genoa and a private tour, this time of the quaint Cinque Terre. Here five villages are carved into the hillside along the coast. They are connected by coastal walkways, a train and ferries. We walked along the Path of Love, named for the love messages carved into rocks, trees and plants. Today, the path also features padlocks that couples hook to fences and rails, then toss the key in the water to symbolize the finality of their love. Among the padlocks was an occasional combination lock. “Guess they’re keeping their options open,” my husband quipped. At the path’s end, we boarded a ferry and stopped at Vernazza, where we dined at a sidefwalk cafe overlooking the water. We instantly fell in love with two locally produced favorites—a walnut sauce over ravioli and the house white wine. Vernazza is best known for its Church to Santa Margherita d’Antiochia. But I was more taken with the Sanctuary of Our Lady Regio. Plunked down on the village’s main path, this Romanesque sanctuary dates back to 1248 and has only three aisles and a shrine to the Madonna and Child. The sanctuary would have looked out of place—in any place except quaint Cinque Terre. By our final full day, we were exhausted, but as this was our only stop fin France, we ventured ashore once more. Our group tour took us 90 minutes to SaintTropez, a village of pastel-colored buildings and harbor of million-dollar yachts. Saint-Tropez is a favorite French Riviera vacation spot for the rich and famous. But we were more enthralled with Port Grimaud. The port is nicknamed the Venice of France because homes and business are built on canals, complete with boats and bridges. Kitschy jewelry and apparel shops line the canals, most of the restaurants feature outdoor seating, and boat tours show off the seaside ftown created by architect Francois Spoerry in the 1960s. A sandy beach is also the ideal spot to rest after a long week. Our real rest didn’t come until evening, back on the ship, as we sat on

our stateroom’s balcony. The sun sank beneath the horizon, painting the sky a vibrant red and orange. The first pangs of wistfulness hit, until I remembered what the captain told us earlier in the week. Next season, the Voyager of the Seas repositions to its new home port in Venice. That means a chance to see three countries and six ports of call over seven days and all from the comfort of one cruise stateroom. Sounds pretty good to me.


Voyager Of The Seas: Despite being launched in 1999, the ship has aged well. It carries up to 3,838 guests, features spacious staterooms and enough public spaces that we never felt crowded. Amenities include a basketball court,

rock-climbing wall, ninehole mini golf course, inline and ice skating, and spa and fitness center. The Peek-a-Boo Bridge also gives guests a rare look inside the captain”s bridge. Also make time to see the “Ice Odyssey Showtime.” Nothing compares to this elaborate ice skating show on a small rink that literally puts the performers right in your face. Seven-day Mediterranean sailings from Barcelona start at $599. These cruises have five ports of call and replace the Genoa stop with a second French port, Villefranche (Nice). Details:; 866-562-7625.

ow! Fuel pumps are a hot topic here in Kelowna as demonstrated by the number of emails we received on my column about them last week. Because of that response, this week I will further address some specific questions people emailed to us about fuel pumps. A couple of emails asked us about the quality of fuel pumps in import versus North American vehicles. At our shop, we have noticed that the import vehicle fuel pumps seem to last longer than those found in domestic vehicles. Rough estimates would suggest that three to five years is a typi-

cal life span of a domestic fuel pump, compared to six to eight years for an import pump (Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, etc). This is comparing factory-installed fuel pumps. Now, when the fuel pump eventually quits, you have a choice. Do you purchase an after-market fuel pump found at your local parts store, or do you stick with the factory fuel pump sold at the dealership? We all agree both types are expensive. As stated last week, this is because the fuel

moved to be able to service the pump module. In most cases, the fuel is removed to help make the tank more manageable. But if the tank is smaller and has less fuel, we can often work around it without having to drain it. Servicing a fuel pump with an access panel is easier to work with and should be reflected in the labour charge. Common labour charges for a vehicle with out the access panel runs around $250, while with the access panel, should run around $100. I hope this helps to fill in some more unanswered questions. As always, I thoroughly enjoy your comments and suggestions for upcoming columns. Please keep them coming via email to

pump itself is a precisionmade electric motor that has to deal with extreme pressures and temperatures. It used to be that one was able to just replace the fuel pump’s electric motor by itself at a cost of $150 to $300. Now, most fuel pumps are manufactured and sold as an entire module kit that contains the fuel pump, the pre-filter and the fuel level gauge. Common costs now range from $450 to $750 for the whole module because it contains more parts. We were also emailed some questions about having to drain the fuel from the pump first, as many vehicles are now equipped with an access panel. This is supposed to help your mechanic avoid having to drain the fuel. Some Hondas, Toyotas, Volkswagens, Ford Escapes and Dodge Intrepids have the access panel, but most vehicles still need the fuel tank re-

Nearly impossible to get into B.C. camp grounds To the editor: I would like to add my comments to a letter that was published in the Capital News on July 9 headlined Campgrounds In The States are Cheaper, Better-run Facilities. We too, like to camp locally in the B.C. provincial parks. However, it is getting harder to get into these beautiful parks. Bear Creek is basically fully booked all summer long on the weekends. There are still a few parks that have some first come first serve spots plus sites that can be reserved. Then some that are fully first come first serve, such as Mabel Lake. We just spent 10 days in the Okanagan North park. The fee is $30 a night plus if you have a car it is $12 a night extra. We have a motor home and we commuted two of those days to work so we decided to bring the vehicle. My question on this point is, why, if you can prove that you actually towed that vehicle, you do not have to pay the $12 fee? If you drive

The next big thing could help our local economy


hile I have not seen the movie Avatar yet, people I know who have unanimously marvel at its 3-D visual presentation. The film has ignited a buzz about the impact of 3-D on the movies we watch in theatres and on our home TVs. So if you missed the hype over Bluray or High Def, don’t worry as here comes another new high-tech craze, at least that was my initial reaction. Here in the Central Okanagan, 3-D theatre screens are already on the way, and the 3-D TV flatscreens are already on the market. But my initial thought about all this was here we go again, another new high tech toy that will allow Hollywood

to market all the old movies all over again. If you already own your personal favourite movies in DVD or Bluray formats, then here’s you chance to buy it Barry again in a 3-D converted Gerding format. It’s the same formula that feeds the classic rock music market, recycle the same stuff in new formats. We went from vinyl, to 8-track, to cassette, to CDs and then iTunes and iPods. For movies, it went from Beta to VCR to DVD to Blu-ray. But after speaking with Gavin Wilding this past week, I’m willing to give ground that this 3-D thing may be more than just a passing fad (see story on A8). Wilding is the managing director of a company called Kerner Canada Inc.,


the subsidiary of Kerner Canada USA, which was the creation of Star Wars movie producer George Lucas. Lucas used his mega-profits from the Star Wars series to create a company called Industrial Light & Magic, which has been an innovative force creating many of the special effects you have seen in movies for the past 20 years. Kerner is one of those creations. Wilding says 3-D has the potential to revolutionize how movies are made and marketed. While Hollywood producers are excited by the inability to pirate 3-D filmed movies compared to the normal 2-D versions, there are still issues with film directors over the camera equipment required to shoot movies. The process is too bulky and cumbersome, but that will evolve. But another aspect of this whole 3-D development is the ability to convert movies from 2-D to 3-D, a pro-

cess that 3-D purists like Avatar director James Cameron are not thrilled about. Cameron’s concern is that people will watch a converted 3-D movie and wonder what’s the big deal, thereby diminishing the integrity of movies originally shot in 3-D. But Wilding, a former film producer, is excited by the prospect of 3-D and how it will change moviemaking, and the prospect of how Kelowna can be on the ground floor of that change by building a new movie studio complement by a 3-D technical support that Kerner could provide. Now Wilding has to be excited about 3-D because he is trying to raise millions in venture capital, but if the consumers like me develop a ‘gotta have it, gotta see it’ affinity for 3-D, perhaps Okanagan investors should be closely pondering over that potential.

Looks like tax charged on tax To the editor: Could someone please help me figure this one out. I went to Extra Foods recently to buy an exchange propane tank and this is what my receipt looked. Please note the different taxes. Exchangeable cylinder $21.95 Carbon t–ax .42 12% HST $2.64 5% HST .02 Total $25.05 Does this seem right to you, or am I the only one who seems to think that I am paying tax on a tax? Al Turner, West Kelowna

What guarantee savings will be passed on? To the editor: What gives with all these proponents of the HST including our legislative members? They are all trying to convince us consumers of how much better off we are to accept the HST because the compounded tax costs are removed from the cost of producing goods and therefore passed on to the consumer. I have not read or heard that this will actually happen. Neither the provincial government nor any other

proponent has ever come up with a guarantee this will, in fact, happen. Will the government set up some sort of auditing function to check the books of manufacturers and producers to make sure they pass on these savings to consumers? I doubt it. Competition itself will not do this (i.e.: gasoline prices). Ralph Hubick, Kelowna

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference 250-860-2356


Occupied townsites are much safer To the editor: I hail from a town in Europe. Until recently, when I took a closer look at it, I had taken it for granted that this town, which is the same size as Kelowna, can boast so many visitors, because of its thousand-year-old history and its famous winter sports area. Meanwhile, I am convinced that, perhaps only subconsciously, the tourists are also enchant-

ed by the uniform height of buildings. Regardless, if those buildings are replacing ancient ones, or filling former green spaces, or parking lots, none of them are higher than the abutting structures, giving the town a look of stability. This regulation even seems to apply well beyond the original fortifications, which have been maintained for hundreds of years into the residen-

tial areas. High rises only dot the sky line several kilometres from the city’s core. It seems to me that city councillors there have found the correct mix of small and tall, modern and antique, thus assuring continuing visits of tourists from all corners. Therefore, I urge the Kelowna city council to refrain from permitting any more high rises near the city’s core.

If city council wants more people to live close to where they work, they ought to encourage stores and offices to occupy only the lower floors of buildings, with residences located in the upper storeys, as is customary in many places in Europe. This arrangement also adds to the security of an area, because those buildings are occupied day and night. Sylvia Schoepf, West Kelowna


Meetings of world leaders could be phoned in


To the editor: In response to Al Richard’s letter: Face-toFace Communication Needed by World Leaders, July 4 Capital News. I read your letter and I respect your point of view, but in the 1930s and during the years of World War Two, I think that world leaders didn’t meet face to face because it wasn’t realfly done back then due to trust and probably because transportation in those times was very limited. f The world didn’t have what it has today— planes, jets, trains and fast cars. Travelling for such things were far and few between and only for a fortunate few. There was also the cost factor back then. I don’t think many world countries could afford a budget to travel by way of what transportation was available in those years. The older cars moved along slowly and to take a ship or train to go to each other’s countries used to

make for a very long, exhausting and costly journey. Many countries back then were trying to survive just as a country, never mind having the extra money to go across the landscape and seas to go to meetings. Yes, it is unfortunate how things turned out with WW II starting, it was one of the blackest moments on Earth and trust was broken. In years after, when countries started to develop more and transportation became more accessible, then these meetings could be part of an agenda. But more black moments have taken place, (nothing like the war) and protesting was allowed, freedom of speech was more open and people stood up for their views and their rights. The black moments of today are those getting carried away with these views and rights where they become riots and the general public and police are the ones getting wounded, hurt and possibly killed because of world lead-

ers meeting in specific venues. The cost factor here in today’s world is police protection, expensive transportation, accommodation, food, security, etc., and these monies could be used for the people instead of meetings. Today’s technology is low-cost, effective and there isn’t much wiggle room to be deceptive to one another without being found out fairly fast—there are too many people watching and waiting to jump on false facts if they arise. Having world meetings by way of electronic means would certainly provide more peaceful times and more money being saved for each country, which in turn, should benefit their own people. We don’t know until we try, I think it is worth a try. Louise Szczepanik, Enderby

Kelowna’s Premier Putting Course!

High price, few services at B.C. campgrounds Camping from A20 it in you do. The vehicle takes the same amount of space if towed or driven in. Another frustrating issue is the actual booking of these campsites. You have three months prior to your arrival date to book on Discover Camping website. It opens at 7 a.m. OK, you are all set up on the computer at 7 a.m., credit card in hand, ready to go. At 7:01 you can’t even get into the website. Try phoning—all lines are busy. Meanwhile, while on the phone all the reservable campsites turn from green to red. Final-

ly, 20 minutes later, you get an agent, try to book at the campsite you want and he/she is telling you they are full. How could this happen so quickly? Is it because the farther east you go the more advantage you have of securing your spot? Oh, by the way, to book this you pay an extra $6 per night. So now your camp fee is $30 plus $6 to total $36 per night. If you have the extra vehicle $12 per night and because you had to use the phone an extra $5, which you really don’t have a choice as you can’t even get into the website. Yes, the parks in the

U.S. are much more economical and provide more service. I could understand paying the $36 if you had a choice of water and electric hookup. What a shame we are out-pricing ourselves and sending our tourists down to the U.S. We have been told that Canadians are too laid back, they pay the fee and don’t complain. Well maybe we should start voicing our opinion more as the couple did who wrote the previous letter and boycott the campgrounds like they are. Perhaps then we could get more for the fee we pay and a better booking system and more camp-

grounds available. Klaus and

Okanagan sailors to salty Summer Games Central Okanagan racers will hoist sails on the ocean during the B.C. Summer Games. Central Okanagan Sailing Association sailing director Devin Rubadeau said six Kelowna mariners will enter on a variety of boats during this year’s competition in Langley. He noted there is a great deal of talent present in this year’s sailing team, although the Summer Games offer challenges that are not present in other events. “The B.C. Summer Games include a very tiring travel and competition schedule that can play havoc with athletes’ bodies and minds,” he said. “Kelowna athletes will focus on off-water rest, nutrition and hydration as we look to keep their energy up.” The team will trav-

el daily between Langley and the launch point at Port Moody. This year promises to be challenging for the Kelowna crew. Rubadeau noted many of the Okanagan sailors will be racing on the ocean for the first time and their finishes may be affected by learning to sail in the currents off Port Moody. COSA coach Brishen Slattery-Holmes will enter in her Laser Radial. The 17-year-old sailor has several top three finishes in B.C. this year. Adam Sorensen will also pilot a Laser Radial. Christopher Turner will sail a Laser Full-Rig. Connor Durham and Shan Rajapakshe will enter a Club 420. The Okanagan’s youngest competitor, Thish Rajapakshe, will compete for the first time at the age of 13.


BRISHEN SLATTERY-HOLMES (second from left), who instructs new sailors at the Central Okanagan Sailing Association, will compete for the Okanagan at the B.C. Summer Games in Langley, July 22 to 25.

Beach volleyball coach sees Summer Games medalists Volleyball players from the Okanagan will represent the area at the B.C. Summer Games, both indoors and on the beach. Beach volleyball coach Paul Mend noted this year’s team is playing at a high calibre. Many of the players potentially could have made the indoor volleyball provincial team, but chose the beach version instead. The game on the sand requires a move towards general all-round skills. Beach players need to be able to serve, set and spike. “You’ve got to be able to play all aspects of the game,” Mend said. He noted that on a twoperson team, a player’s weaknesses can be glaring. This is the first venture to the Summer Games

for most of the players, although some tackled the indoor version of the sport in previous years. The beach squad has a strong game and Mend believes they will be medal contenders, but he noted he has not yet seen the other teams. On the sand, the Fraser Valley, New Westminster, Island and Thompson-Okanagan zones usually field the most robust squads. Mend noted he coaches indoor volleyball during the winter, but beach is his true passion. “It’s way more fun.” The outdoor game presents more opportunities to play. With only two people per team, players maximize their contact on the ball and step up fifty per cent of the time. Mend pointed out that in the indoor game, players can go

through a couple of rotations and not touch a ball. Players hit the sand outside, with the lake nearby. A California product, Mend often played by the ocean and pointed out the beach game is considered more of a lifestyle. There is a sense of community present that he does not find with indoor volleyball. He noted this year’s Summer Games squad is the best-bonded team he’s worked with. The players have improved over the short time they have trained together. “They’re a really close group.” Indoor coach Rob Smith said the 14- and 15-year-old players on the Summer Games squad come out of the club system. Generally, players will start out with school

volleyball. Those who are more interested in the game will play for a local club during the January to May season. The clubs hold tryouts for the Summer Games team.



Smith said that for the U15 girls, the Summer Games represents the top of their game. “For these girls, it’s the best level of volleyball for their age group.” Smith noted indoor

volleyball varies widely from the beach version of the game. With only two people on a beach volleyball team, those players take care of the entire range of team duties. Indoor volleyball teams field six players, each with positions and roles. Smith pointed out a player who is a great middle blocker and attacker in the indoor game might not be good on the beach due to a lack of all-round skills. “When there’s only two, you have to pass and serve and do everything.” Smith said indoor players will more often focus on the particular needs of a position. For players at the U15 level, they are just starting to specialize after receiving a solid grounding in all skills. “As coaches, we don’t

want them to specialize too early.” Smith said players can sometimes be funneled into specific roles. “This 6-foot-2 girl we’ve got, she’s probably always going to be a middle blocker because that’s her body type.” Smith added the indoor game can be faster without the slowing factor of sand, and it can be easier to jump off the floor. For the girls on the indoor squad, the age bracket system means this will be their only opportunity to play volleyball at the provincial event. “You basically get one experience at Summer Games volleyball.” The team is made up of players who have survived the school teams, moved into the club systems and passed region-

al tryouts. Players for the Thompson-Okanagan Zone team are selected from Penticton to Kamloops and points in between. Smith said the core of the team is formed with a group of players familiar with each other from the Kelowna Volleyball Club team. Another smaller group comes from the Vernon club team. “It does kind of help that the core of the team has played together.” Smith noted every coach has a different system, and having the core of players come from the same system helps things work a little better. The Kelowna club team was ranked third going into provincials. “This teavm will represent the zone well.” there... and back.

Heat adds MacGillivray to mix Lightning strong show Add another former Kelowna Owl to the pool of key off-season recruits for the UBC Okanagan women’s volleyball squad. Clarice MacGillivray is the third ex-KSS standout to get on board with the Heat for the 2010-11 BCCAA season. Ex-Owl teammates Kailin Jones and Chandler Proch have also committed to the UBCO program for the fall. At 5-foot-9, MacGillivray is somewhat undersized for a power hitter, but has found a way to compensate with her natural athleticism. She was a member of B.C’s under-17 team in 2009, and also excels on the beach where she played at the 2008 B.C. Summer Games MacGillivray has teamed with Jones this summer to create a killer sand duo which has already beaten the likes of a Heat stars Alex Basso and Leigh Dreher in the 24U division. “I chose UBC Okanagan for its outstanding athletic and also academic programs,” said MacGillivray. “I am so lucky to have found both those things in one campus. I can’t wait to become a part of the best volleyball program of college athletics in Canada.” “I think I will fit into the Heat program pretty well. I bring lots of positivity and a good work ethic,” she added. “I am real-

Haley Pipher, Kierra Smith and Jennifer Short all struck gold to lead the Liquid Lightning to its best showing ever at the provincial age group swim championships. Last weekend in Kamloops, Pipher won gold in both the 16-and-over 200 and 400 IM events, while adding two silver medals to her tally. Smith took gold in the 16-and-over 200 and 100 breast stroke and also won silver, while Short took gold in the 15-year-old 100 breast stroke and also added a silver. Kate Aguiar was on fire all weekend with 100 per cent best times shaving 6.98 seconds off her 200m breastroke to be-

Kate Aguiar come the ninth Lightning swimmer to qualify for the Canadian age group championships in Winnipeg next week. Makayla Skrlac competed in four finals and won two bronze medals in the 13-year-old 100 and 200 breastroke. Chalene Ryan earned

a bronze medal in the 16 and over 50 free. Andraya Skrlac, Chantelle Douglas competed in three finals while Elizabeth Aguiar, Chenoa Bondar and Lacey Falkingham competed in two finals. The Lightning finished 11th overall in which is a significant improvement from last year when the club placed 32nd. “These elite swimmers are finally learning how to race fast in pressure situations,” LLSC head coach Emil Dmitrov. “They’re a close knit group who challenge each other every day in practise and showed everyone in the province what they are capable of.”

McDonald leads Aquajets MARK BRETT/CONTRIBUTOR

CLARICE MACGILLIVRAY is the third Kelowna Owls graduate to join the UBC Okanagan Heat for the 2010-11 women’s volleyball season. ly looking forward to getting to know all the girls because their dedication and determination is very inspiring to watch.” With the loss of BCCAA all-star Leigh Dreher, MacGillivray will have an opportunity to vie for some immediate playing

time. “Clarice is a nice addition to our squad, she’s a hard worker and has a great attitude,” said Heat coach Steve Manuel. “She is extremely athletic and can play equally well in the front row and the backcourt. We are looking for-

ward to seeing Clarice in action wearing a Heat uniform.” MacGillivray is also an all-star in the classroom where she won the prestigious President’s Entrance Scholarship prior to her acceptance to UBC Okanagan.

An eleven-year-old boy swimming for the Kelowna Aquajets left many in his wake during provincial long course AAA competition in Kamloops. Sam McDonald competed in the 50, 100 and 200 metre freestyle, 100 and 200 metre breaststroke and 200 IM. He added the event was “pretty good.” Sam has been swimming since the age of seven, and said he competes for the fun of it. His most difficult event is the 1,500 metre due to the distance. Sam’s father Aaron said his son competed at the AA level in Surrey in late June. The younger McDonald brought home a silver in the 1,500 metre, two golds in breaststroke and two bronze in freestyle. Along with the hardware, Sam earned entrance into the AAA championship in Kamloops.

“We’re surprised he did so well in triples,” said Aaron. He noted Sam had not qualified for doubles at the beginning of the year, but made it in late in the year for the chance to enter the Surrey competition. “We went, thinking it would be a good experience.” That good experience brought Sam back with not only medals but a qualifier into the AAA championship. Aaron said the family decided to take Sam to Kamloops, but told him he would have to be prepared to be at the bottom of the heap instead of the top of the heap like in Surrey. From the bottom of the Kamloops heap, Sam rose to the finals, bringing back a fourth place in the 100 metre breaststroke and a bronze in the 200 metre event.

Loffler to Boise State after one more season with KSS Owls Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Owls will have one more season to field Taylor Loffler before the quarterback and safety joins Boise State University.

Coach Roy Anderson said Loffler has verbally committed to play for Boise. The 6 foot 4 inch Kelowna player is headed into his third season with the Owls, a team he joined in Grade 10. Anderson said Loffler had the basic

tools when he came in, but has developed as a player since that time. “He’s worked pretty hard on his strength and his speed.” Loffler has played mostly quarterback and safety, with a few forays

to the outside line. Anderson said it appears that Boise will use him as a defensive or safety player, although his role with the university squad is still fluid. “I think they’re going to take a look at him at

quarterback... they’re still trying to decide what to do with him.” Plans are in the works to fill Loffler’s shoes with the Owls. Anderson noted the team has a couple of good backup quarterbacks.

“Our second guy, Sam Davies, is good enough to start for most teams in the province.” Anderson said the team plans to use Loffler on receiver and Davies at quarterback during the fall season. The Owls are

‘I salivated at prospect of 8.5 k trail winding over Sun Peaks’ Yamaoka Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER


his is brutal,” a voice behind me gasped. Her observation blended with the panting of others in the winding line of runners struggling their way up the steep rocky side of Mount Tod. The first crazy thing was that a few people were doing this twice. The second crazy thing was how much fun it was. The 5 Peaks Challenge is a series of trail races that take place across Canada. In B.C., the series has runners conquering sport and endurance trail courses in mountainous areas. Fortified by some Ke-

Mike Simmons lowna-area runs, I salivated at the prospect of the 8.5 kilometre trail winding through the upper alpine at Sun Peaks. The sun baked down on the village the morning of July 10 as we donned water packs and boarded the Sunburst Express chairlift. Blue skies and clear mountain air promised the day would be-

come a sauna. But as we rose up, the temperature fell and clouds sifted across the horizon. We bounced up and down in the gravel at the start line as a brisk breeze whistled over the mountainside. It would be warmer once we were moving. And it was. Runners burst out of the chute and across the bridge, along the rolling access road that narrowed to a rocky trail inching upwards over the first ridge. I gasped for air like a beached fish as we coursed up a slope that would have seemed easy in Kelowna. The change in altitude meant less oxygen all around. Lungs labouring, we crested the ridge and dis-

covered the shallow slope was a pale shadow of the rock-encrusted goat trail leading up the West Bowl. There was no longer running involved. It became a hiking race, conducted at the speed of an overweight snail. We oozed upward, panting. The trail crested a rocky knob and sloped gently away. But that easy path was not for us. A smaller, fainter trail angled steeply up towards the aptly-dubbed Top of the World. Someone behind me swore. But every hike has its end. As we reached the top, winding trails beckoned. Running was once again possible. We surged downhill on a thin and rocky path, winding across the steep

grass-covered flank of the mountain. Our track took us down through fields of alpine wildflowers. We ran through patches of mud and snow and across streams, slipping carefully from rock to rock. Pounding down through the forest, runners wound their way at top speed around tight corners. The trail squeezed through gaps in the closeknit branches. I felt acclimatized. The air was heady and rich. As clumps of runners wound downward through the trees and broke out into the open, we reached an old man in dark glasses. Shouting raspily, he directed a few hardy souls onto the upward path as they attacked

the 15-kilometre enduro. The course marshal waved me merrily on as I continued downhill. “Sorry,” he barked with a grin. “You don’t get to play!” Next time, old man. Tim Dickinson of Westbank took second place in the enduro, with a time of 1:23:30. On the sport course, Suzanne Macht of Westbank burned her way to 11th spot with a time of 0:54:17. Finally, this reporter’s sister made a valiant effort, conquering the most difficult climb of the course despite chronic knee injury. Good job, Mel. msimmons

Lauren Harris and Cheryl Bjorgan scored twice each for Mark V, with Jen Meyer scoring the other. Kim McNally tallied twice for Stiyotes, with Jenn Austin, Julia Walker and Michelle Wootton scoring singles. Paula Brownlee had two assists. In other action, Brandt’s Creek Diablos downed AFC 3-1. Kim Teichman, with two, and Aidan Cole tallied goals in the win. Ashley Nicholls countered for AFC. RPM Automotive beat Royal Star 7-1. Kate-

After playing the course long enough to know the subtle differences in each green, Keith Yamaoka now owns the course record at Sunset Ranch. Yamaoka shot an eagle and six birdies on his way to the record low of 64 during an early morning game on July 11. He said he has been a member at the course since he played golf at the junior level. “It’s been a long time.” The Kelowna golfer was already in possession of the tournament course record at 66, but the alltime low was 64. Yamaoka had perfect conditions and soft greens for the 6:30 a.m. game that landed the course record. “The ball rolled really true on the greens, I was really relaxed.” He had spent the previous three days playing in the Ogopogo Invitational at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club. Yamaoka’s experience on the Sunset Ranch course also came into play during the record-setting game. He noted the greens at Sunset Ranch can be tricky. After playing on them for some time, he said golfers get to know the subtle differences and how they all break. Yamaoka just completed his third year as a student at UBC Okanagan. He is playing less in the competitive end currently, having seceded from playing as many tournaments as he did at the junior level. “In the last couple of years, I haven’t been playing that much golf at all.”

Match play tour narrowed to 16 playoff positions A tight race for playoff positions in the inaugural year for the Okanagan Golf Club’s Match Play Tour presented by Molson Canadian came to an end this week with the final qualifying round for 16 playoff positions. When the dust settled, Molson Tour founder rRick Jaenicke came from behind to scrape into the top 16, with match play pairings in the playoff teeing off this Monday at the Okanagan Golf Club. Thirty-one players battled it out over the windswept Bear Course for a spot in the top 16. Using the Stableford Scoring System, Morgan Ellis topped the daily points total with a spectacular 24 points but unffortunately was a victim of too little too late as his impressive point total did not catapult him into the top 16. Second best week 11 was Dean Hyde with 22 points which, unfortunately when added with his previous qualifying rounds, also did not let him reach into the top 16. Jaenicke, a long time Molson Tour veteran playing with a handful of antique golf clubs, posted 22 points and ultimately he leapt past a cluster of players to catch a piece of the top 16. Adam Fik qualified atop the Molson Tour field fscoring an impressive 155 points from his best eight qualifying rounds. Year long points leader Garrett Brisbourne, who just relinquished top spot to Adam with a couple of weeks left in qualifying, ended the 11-week qualifying period with a solid 150 points and will be seeded second, while Don Wikenheiser and Jason Senger tied for third spot both scoring a respectable 143 points. First round matches will be determined by point totals and groups will be formed accordingly, with the playoffs set to begin Monday, July 19.

Is botox the magic ‘bullet’ everyone’s looking for? Every now and then an article published in a medical journal will catch my eye, and I know I just need to count the days before I’ll see the results picked up by the mainstream press, then a wave of questions from patients. Recently, a paper published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal described a potential role for botox therapy (the injection of botulinum toxin to paralyze a muscle) in the treatment of their tennis elbow. The CMAJ paper I am referring to is a study conducted in Iran in which patients with chronic tennis elbow were randomized and injected with either saline placebo or botulinum toxin in their lateral forearm. The study was small—only 48 patients—but their outcomes, scientifically speaking, looked impressive. After 16 weeks postinjection, the study subjects reported a statistically significant decrease in pain while resting and

On the downside, however, all but one of the people in the study experienced weakness in their finger extensor muscles post injection, although most had this weakness resolve by week 16. At first glance this study suggest that botox may be a revolutionary new way to get rid of the pesky pain of tennis elbow—and in fact, that’s how some media outlets ran the story. Only if you read the actually study would you see that this treatment was tested as a last resort, after study subjects had “failed” other efforts to relieve their pain. For the researchers conducting this study,

their intent was clear: to see whether or not botox worked in decreasing the pain associated with tennis elbow. But from my vantage point, this paper and others like it can have other unfortunate outcomes, namely, catchy headlines, confused readers, and perhaps most of all, people in pain grasping at what they hope will be the magic bullet for ridding themselves of a niggling injury. It may well be that paralyzing someone’s extensor muscles with botox is a plausible treatment option—future studies should help confirm or deny this theory. But before leaping to embrace such an invasive intervention (with a risk of complications and adverse effects), someone afflicted with tennis-elbow should always first be tested for potential compounding mechanical or neuromuscular issues and exhaust all noninvasive treatment options. My advice, and this applies to any musculo-

home program to get you through the injury stage as quickly as possible. If, at the end of all this, your injury is still present, ask your health-care provider if there are further noninvasive, low-risk treatment options available. In the end, you might need to progress to the more invasive therapies, but make

sure you keep in mind the more aggressive the treatment, the more arduous the side effects. Tyler Dyck is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manual Physiotherapists and is a coowner of Sun City Physiotherapy. 250-861-8056.

In loving memory of Gib Amundrud who passed away peacefully in his sleep at Kelowna General Hospital, after a courageous three year battle with myelofibrosis. He lived a very full and happy life starting as a strapping farm boy, the youngest of five strong Norwegian Canadian brothers on the family homestead in Saskatchewan. He moved to B.C. with his first wife Agnes and his four small children in 1964. He was a skilled jack of all trades and a master carpenter. He was also a very accomplished multiinstrumental musician. He sang and played in bands from the early age of 12 until the age of 83. He was a 2005 Guinness World Record holder for participating in a 665 pce. accordion orchestra. He even managed to cut three CDs after turning 80 years old. He lived in Chilliwack with his second wife Arlene from their marriage in 1978 until her death in 2000, when he moved to Westbank, B.C. He was pre-deceased by his mother Anna and father Anton, his wives Agnes and Arlene, his brothers Andy, Ole and Edwin, and grandson Robbie. Gib will be lovingly remembered by his brothers Tom and Ernie, his son Duane (Sue), and daughters Shelly, Shauna (Ron), Donna (Larry), and step-daughter Kelly. Grandchildren Devon, Nicole, Ryan, Jesse, Tanis, Chelsea, Clayton, Derek, Will, Rob, Tania and Niki, and blessed with 6 great-grandchildren and countless other loving relatives, friends, and bandmates. A celebration of his life will take place on Sat July 31, 2010 in Kelowna. Please call daughter Shelly at 250-863-1354 to get details for attendance.

New showcase home built at The Ponds Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

Searching for a custom builder can be a tricky process. If you are looking to build a relationship with a quality small volume builder that will work with you on your custom project, it can sometimes be difficult to see past projects in person. Wine Country Custom Homes builds four to five homes per year, with the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest showhome now completed at The Ponds, a development in the Upper Mission area of south Kelowna. Now is the time to visit the home and meet the builder, because Wine Country Homes owner Pat Hayko liked the home so much, he decided to buy it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have built homes one by one for over 21 years now and we have personal testimonials from people that date back to the 1980s,â&#x20AC;? said Hayko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We handle our own sales and custom build to order, we are not a volume builder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a quality custom builder and this home is typical of what we build.â&#x20AC;? The Ponds showhome is an entertainerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream, suited to an Okanagan lifestyle and built with empty nesters in mind. An impressive timber arbor with stone posts and iron gates welcome you into the 650 square-foot courtyard which features stamped concrete, rustic

Showcase from B???? You can choose to dine outside, or enjoy the carefully designed outdoor living space. The stamped concrete deck features a rustic gas fireplace which divides the deck into a dining area and an outdo living room. It also features a ceiling fan, sound system and retractable phantom screens which will block out the sun and or wind, creating a year round outdoor living area. The main floor is open concept, and the wine parlour creates multiple entertaining opportunities. The wine parlour features 12- foot ceilings, punctuated with Tuscan style beams. Six-foot deep, dark maple wainscoting, is paired with suede finish paint to create a warm and inviting space. The master bedroom is generously sized, and has a stellar eight piece ensuite. The master bath features travertine floors with in-floor heating, granite counter tops separate make-up desk, six-foot soaker tub, custom travertine walk-in shower with rain head and body sprays. There is a full walk-out basement, with the second and third bedroom and plenty of space for hobbies and guests. Hayko wanted to design a home that would showcase his company’s commitment to quality and ability to offer luxury at an affordable price. “We wanted a home that would not only offer a ‘Wow’ factor, but also a home where people could say, yes, I could live in a home like this,” said Hayko. Hayko chose to build at The Ponds because of positive previous experiences with the project developer. The staggering views were another factor, added Hayko, and when combined with The Ponds’ concept for the neighbourhood, including several kilometers of walking trails and a soon to be built shopping centre mall within walking distance of every home. “It just doesn’t get any better than this,” explained Hayko. The home is located at 966 Hewetson Ave. and is open by appointment only. To view pictures online visit To book an appointment 250-769-0703 or email

Sunday, July 18, 2010


Finding the right credit line to match your spending habits Credit line, line of credit and home equity line of credit—they all mean the same thing, that you have credit that’s available to you on a moment’s notice. Most people will utilize the revolving credit for such purposes as purchasing stocks, bonds, RRSPs; having available credit ready to invest in other properties; renovating an existing home; or purchasing new appliances, vehicles or

other personal assets. When a credit line “revolves,” it means the purpose of it is to draw on it and pay it back as quickly as possible. Consider it to be like a credit card in that it should be used only when needed and you possibly have funds coming in to pay it off. Credit lines can be either unsecured or secured, depending on the credit limit of the facility.

Interest rates are higher on unsecured credit lines and have much lower limits due to the fact the financial institution does not take any kind of collateral. In stating a credit line is secured, we mean the financial institution will place a mortgage on your property to secure it. The limit of the credit available will be based on a percentage of the value of your home,

usually set at 75 to 80 per cent Interest rates for secured credit lines are usually the prime interest rate plus one per cent (3.5 per cent as of this past week) in today’s market and starting at the prime rate plus two per cent (4.5 per cent as of this past week) and up for unsecured credit lines. What you must realize is your interest rate is tied to the financial institution’s prime interest rate so, as prime fluctu-

ates up and down, the interest rate being charged to you will also fluctuate up and down. Not everyone should have a credit line. You must be disciplined in using it as, we’ve found out over the years, a lot of borrowers will set up a credit limit and always be at the top of that limit. An example of the type of borrower who should not generally have this type of credit is one with a credit line limit that

is always at, or close to, that limit and never pays it down. As we’ve stated above, the purpose of it is to pay it off as quickly as possible and always have an available amount for those quick purchases, renovations, investments, etc. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250470-8324) and Darwyn Sloat (250-718-4117).

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen cherries are ripe The first tree fruits of the year are now being picked in local orchards, and local, fresh, firm, sweet red cherries are available wherever fruit is sold. Do make sure they have the B.C. brand stickers on them so you’re supporting local growers. Of course, they’re wonderful finger food, but they also make great baked goods and desserts, and they can be pitted and frozen for later, or canned. Using some of the first fruit of the season, I did a little experimenting, and discovered a couple of yummy ways to incorporate cherries into summer meals. To celebrate the harvest, head over to the 15th annual Cherry Fair put on by the B.C. Orchard Industry Museum on Saturday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Take the whole family. This year, it will be held on the lawn next to the Library Parkade at 1380 Ellis Street, just a half-block from the Laurel Packinghouse. At the Cherry Fair you’ll be able to sample many different varieties of cherries, enjoy live entertainment and children’s activities, mini-golf, food vendors, exhibitors and buy cherries. Admission is by donation. Incidentally, work on the historic 93-year-old Laurel building is moving along, and you can be part of the restoration by going to the website for updates, at and you can also make donations there to help refurbish the interior. I encourage you to support this restoration project, which captures some of our fruit-growing history in a key component of the industry, a packinghouse. The Laurel is the perfect backdrop for the orchard industry museum, the wine museum and gift shop and for special events. By the way, if you enjoy Jude’s Kitchen, you might be interested in my upcoming book of the same name. It’s to be published in September by the Okanagan Institute and you should reserve your copy at: www.

Fat-Free Cherry Chocolate Frozen Yogurt This is quite refreshing and flavourful. Although it’s perfect served right from the ice cream maker, once you put it in the freezer it goes hard, so it has to be softened for just a few minutes before serving. I put servingsize dabs on a baking sheet in the freezer, then dump them all in a plastic bag to keep. That way I don’t have to try and chop chunks out of a single frozen lump to serve. 2 1/2 c. (750 ml) pitted cherries 2 c. (500 ml) fat-free, plain yogurt 1/4 c. (60 ml) sugar 1/4 c. (60 ml) chocolate chips

pinch of five-spice powder pinch of cinnamon In a blender, chop the cherries finely. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Pour into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker and follow the equipment’s instructions to complete. My electric one takes about 20 minutes to turn this into a frozen confection which doesn’t contain any fat and not a lot of sugar, compared to lots of other ice creamy concoctions.


Whole Grain Cherry Scones This dough was a little sticky, likely because I wanted to use up last year’s cherries from the freezer and they’re probably a bit more juicy than the fresh ones. Without using the whole grains, these would be a bit lighter, but I much prefer the flavour this way, not to mention the added nutrition. 1 1/4 c. (310 ml) flour 3/4 c. (175 ml) whole wheat flour 2 tbsp. (30 ml) crushed flax seed 1/2 c. (125 ml) brown sugar 1 tbsp. (15 ml) baking powder 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) baking soda 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) allspice 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) five spice powder 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) salt 1/3 c. (75 ml) butter 1/2 c. (125 ml) rolled oats 1 tbsp. (15 ml) lemon zest 1 1/4 c. (310 ml) sweet cherries 2/3 c. (150 ml) buttermilk rolled oats, to garnish

In a large bowl whisk dry ingredients, except rolled oats, and cut in cold butter, using a pastry blender or your fingers. Stir in rolled oats and minced lemon zest. Coarsely chop pitted cherries and set aside. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk. Stir in slightly and add the chopped cherries, stirring just until the ingredients are combined. Turn out onto a floured board and knead a dozen times. Chill for 30 minutes or so. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Divide dough in half and on the floured board, pat each piece out into a circle about a half-inch thick. Cut each into six wedges and place each on a greased sheet or on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until brown. Makes 10.

A B.C. FOREST SERVICE helicopter drops fire retardant on the flames that engulfed Seclusion Bay on the Westside earlier this week. The fire forced the evacuation of more than 60 people from the area and temporarily closed Highway 97 in both directions. SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS

Wildfire fire hits Seclusion Bay Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

Ida Sharp thought she smelled a campfire. At 9:45 Monday morning, Sharp was busy at work at Seclusion Bay Resort—a small, idyllic tourist attraction tucked into the shoreline of Okanagan Lake below Goats Peak Mountain. A scent was in the air and Sharp thought, at first, she smelled a campfire. She went to a window at the back of the building and the realization hit home that life at the quiet resort was about to be turned upside down. On July 18, last year, fire broke out above the Gorman Bros. Mill in Glenrosa. Fanned by winds, the blaze grew quickly and spread to Goats Peak. Seclusion Bay did not burn then, but residents and visitors of the area, which straddles the border between Peachland

and West Kelowna, were evacuated as a precaution. On Monday, just about one year later, Sharp realized the spectre of wildfire was not only going to repeat, but was on her back door. “Oh my God, that’s not a campfire,” Sharp said after looking through the window. Sharp ran outside, jumped into a golf cart, grabbed her husband and headed up the twisting, narrow path that is Seclusion Bay Road. “The fire was heading down the road,” said Sharp, who turned the golf cart around and headed back to the resort. “I’m racing in the golf cart,” said Sharp, who yelled to homeowners and guests. “Screaming was more like it.” In the melee, she called 911. Since the only escape route was the road up to Highway 97, Sharp was told to gather everyone and head down to the

water. The call came into Peachland Fire and Rescue Service a few minutes after 10 o’clock and Fire Chief Grant Topham was the first to respond. A mushroom cloud of smoke was already rising into the wind-swept air above Seclusion Bay and Topham said the moment he saw what he was heading into, he picked up his radio and called fire dispatch. “I had resources coming before I got there,” said Topham, who requested immediate mutual aid from neighbouring fire departments and for the regional district’s Emergency Operations Centre to be evacuated. As Topham drove north on Highway 97 toward the scene, three RCMP police cruisers headed down Seclusion Bay Road to begin an evacuation. Const. Denise Benfeld worked to evacuate resi-

dents of the small community. About 30 residents were able to escape by road before Benfeld’s luck ran out, according to an RCMP press release. Some residents returned from their planned escape to tell Benfeld the road was blocked by flames and debris. Two other officers, Const. Ryan Routley and Auxillary Const. Greg Barnard, were meanwhile trying to evacuate an 87-year-old woman whom they had found asleep on her living room couch and completely unaware of the forest fire that raged around her home. Routley and Barnard were able to wake the woman and get her into their cruiser. They tried to escape, but their path was blocked and the two officers abandoned their car, taking the woman with them. The only way out was a 500-metre trek down a steep embankment.

As residents and resort visitors made their way to the water, every vehicle from Peachland Fire and Rescue Service was put into service and trucks and firefighters from Summerland and West Kelowna were heading to the scene. They would soon be joined by fellow firefighters from Kelowna and the B.C. Forest Service. “We saw the police bringing (the woman) down the hill,” said Sharp, who was concerned for her elderly neighbour. A number of boats soon arrived at the resort, picking up evacuees and marking the first time in the Okanagan that a marine rescue of the type was carried out. Sharp said she and several of her guests ended up at the Pritchard Bay home of Steve Hein—a former owner of Seclusion Bay. Hein fed everyone lunch and offered lodging to a family from Switzerland that was staying at the re-

sort. Police soon blocked off Highway 97 to traffic in both directions and drivers were rerouted around the fire scene over the Coquihalla Connector and Trepanier Road in Peachland. A total of 67 residents and resort visitors were evacuated from Seclusion Bay and assisted by emergency social services. Luckily for firefighters, the strong morning wind subsided through the day and they were able to get a handle on the fire, which grew to 30 hectares in size. The Districts of Peachland and West Kelowna declared local states of emergency on Monday. By Tuesday night, the fire was 90 per cent contained. On Thursday, residents learned that, although they would have two hours that afternoon to visit their homes to retrieve belongings, they would have to

stay evacuated for at least two more days as crews worked to clean up damaged infrastructure and remove dangerous trees from the area. A property owner in West Kelowna lost a home, a garage and a boat in the fire. Another property owner in Peachland lost a garage. Without knowing when the evacuation order would be lifted, Sharp made the decision Thursday to keep her resort closed for another week. As for emergency personnel involved in the Seclusion Bay Fire, Sharp has nothing but praise. “They were fabulous. They were so fast,” said Sharp. “They had everything organized.” According to local fire officials, the blaze was started by a tree, downed by the strong gusting winds Monday, falling across power lines in the Seclusion Bay area.

Dishing the dirt on bylaw Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

A new earthworks control bylaw under consideration by West Kelowna council is too restrictive and punitive, according to the president of the district’s neighbourhood association. Joe Lavigne is so concerned about the proposed bylaw that the West Kelowna Residents’ Association will hold a public meeting Monday to inform the public and receive feedback. “It wasn’t well thought out,” said Lavigne. “Our problem is there was no public input. We saw it as being fast-tracked.” West Kelowna council spent less than a half hour on the proposed bylaw June 22 before giving it first and second reading. The bylaw is intended to regulate the removal and deposit of soil, sand, gravel and rock within District of West Kelowna boundaries. “This bylaw would impose severe restrictions on the removal and deposit of soils and other materials within the municipality,” said Lavigne. “It introduces the requirement for individuals and businesses to apply for permits and institutes

a fee regime which would be prohibitively expensive where movement of a large quantity of material is involved.” West Kelowna’s move towards the new bylaw comes after a similar move in Peachland. Two years ago, an application for a gravel pit operation on Princeton Avenue was not well received by the



public. Although the B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources has since given approval to the Peachland gravel pit, the District of Peachland opted to enact its own, restrictive bylaw. Limits in the bylaw make it illegal for anyone to remove more than 200 cubic metres of material from any one property in a calendar year without a permit. Now West Kelowna is

looking at enacting a similar bylaw, but Lavigne said there are problems with it. “It makes no sense in a community that is divided by different jurisdictions,” said Lavigne, noting that Westbank First Nation is not contemplating a similar earthworks bylaw. If the bylaw is adopted, a gravel pit in West Kelowna will have to pay fees for aggregate removal, but a similar operation on WFN land will not, according to Lavigne. The association president is also concerned about the potential financial impact of the bylaw on farmers who may want to level land in order to grow different crops. “It could into the hundreds of thousands of dollars for the permit,” said Lavigne. Invitations have been sent out to West Kelowna council members to attend the public forum Monday, said Lavigne. He hopes that truckers, developers, farmers, chamber of commerce representatives and realtors will show up to get informed and ask questions. The public forum takes place at the Westbank Lions Community Centre Monday, July 19, at 7 p.m.


A WORKER installs glass on the front of the new public safety building on Pamela Road in Westbank. The building is slated to open in September.


Council told cop shop ready in September Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

It may not look it from the outside, but the new public safety building under construction on Pamela Road in Westbank is less than two months away from completion. Occupancy for the $8.5 million building is slated for Sept. 1, West

Kelowna council heard at its meeting Tuesday. The facility, which is being built to withstand a natural disasters, will be 1,767-square metres and house the West Kelowna detachment of the RCMP. It will have room to handle RCMP expansion and an emergency operations centre for the district.

Originally started by the regional district, the project was taken over by West Kelowna in 2008. The new municipality delayed tendering the project until the spring of 2009 and was able to save nearly a $1 million in the process, according to staff. “Staff anticipates successful completion of this project, on time and

on budget,” states a staff report to council. “The only issue is the interior building testing required to meet our LEED certification, which may delay occupancy.” If there is a delay in occupancy, the lease for the existing West Kelowna detachment has been extended until the end of September.

More firefighters than managers earned big bucks in 2009 Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

West Kelowna ended its 2009 fiscal year with nearly a $1 million surplus, according to Jim Zaffino, the municipality’s chief financial officer. The surplus, pegged at $987,268, represents a 1.47 per cent variance from the municipal budget of $67 million, Zaffino re-

ported to West Kelowna council Tuesday. “The district now has two years of history to draw upon and future surpluses are expected to be minimal,” said Zaffino, who presented the district’s 2009 financial statements. Each year, municipalities are required to disclose certain financial information to the public

through a Statement of Financial Information. It shows, among other items, how much local politicians were paid. In 2009, Mayor Doug Findlater took home $57,906 and he was reimbursed $5,188 in expenses. Each of the six councillors were paid $20,460 and their expense reimbursements ranged from a low of $2,045 for Coun.

Gord Milsom, to a high of $5,938 for Coun. Carol Zanon. In total, council cost taxpayers $180,666 in salaries and $34,691 in expense reimbursements. In West Kelowna, the number of firefighters who earned more than $75,000 outnumbered administration officials. A total of 12 managers earned more than $75,000, while 17

firefighters made made that amount or more. Topping the management list was chief administration officer Jason Johnson. who made $151,953 in 2009. Also on the list are: • Jim Zaffino, chief financial officer, $126,180; • Dave Slobodan, director of building services, $108,135; • Wayne Schnitzler, fire

chief, $107,137; • Ray Bogaards, director of parks, $105,700 • Marnie Manders, director of administration, $104,541; • Gary O’Rourke, director of engineering, $103,474; • Kerry Klonteig, deputy fire chief, $97,398; • Darren Lee, deputy fire chief, $96,826; • Karen Burley, director of corporate services,

Former committee member tabbed for primary school job Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

Renovation work on the old primary school building on Beach Avenue in Peachland is expected to get underway shortly, now that the council has hired a contractor to look after the work. Rob Campbell was a member of the council appointed committee that was charged with overseeing renovation efforts. He submitted his re-

signation to council recently, along with a proposal that he be hired as a contractor. Campbell, who is also the president of the Peachland Chamber of Commerce, proposed to his committee that he could oversee the first phase of renovations, including the removal of bat guano and asbestos from the building. The present stucco siding will also be removed.

At a cost of $8,000, council approved hiring Campbell and, in the process, waived its usual policy of receiving three quotes for the work. Campbell will be including a lot of volunteer time with his work, which will amount to far more than the $8,000 cost, according to Coun. Terry Condon, who sits on the primary school committee. Tendering quotes on the renovation project

would be “difficult to put out there,” said Peachland CAO Elsie Lemke. The 100-year-old building has sat idle for years as one council after another battled over whether to save and renovate the former school or bulldoze it. After public consultation, last year Peachland council decided to save the building, so long as the first phase of renovations cost the district no more than $200,000.

Sign vandals not welcomed here Dave Preston CONTRIBUTOR

RCMP and the District of West Kelowna are on the lookout for vandals who wrecked a newly installed entrance sign near Boucherie Road early in the week. Work on two new entrance signs, including one off Gellatly Road on the district’s south side, was completed just a few weeks ago. And last week the district changed the colour of the lettering from silver to black to make the words Welcome To West Kelowna stand out more “The District of West

Kelowna is disappointed at the damage done to the sign,” Jason Luciw, communications coordinator for the district, said in a news release. The vandalism took place sometime overnight Tuesday or early Wednesday morning. It included the theft of some solar panels and the signs were scratched and sprayed with graffiti. Missing from the damaged sign was the word Kelowna. In its place, the vandals spray painted the word ‘Bank’. Ever since the community adopted the name West Kelowna to replace the municipality’s

original name of Westside, a small, vocal contingent in the community has continued to oppose use of the new name. The name West Kelowna was chosen in a close referendum vote over the name Westbank. After the dame to the sign was discovered Wednesday morning, district staff immediately removed the graffiti and placed a tarp over the sign until other damage could be repaired Wednesday afternoon, said Luciw. A contractor worked with staff to install and paint new lettering on the sign. A new solar lighting system, estimated to cost

$3,500, has been ordered becauase the original one was taken. Until it arrives, the sign will not be illuminated at night. “Fortunately the sign was designed to ensure it could be quickly repaired in the event of damage,” said Luciw. The RCMP and the district are anxious for any information about the people responsible for the vandalism. Anyone with information is asked to call the RCMP 250-7682880. The cost of designing, building and installing both signs was $36,000, with an another $7,600 spent on solar powered lighting.


WEST KELOWNA has changed the colour of the letters on its welcome signs to

make them more legible. Earlier this week the sign at Boucherie Road was vandalized. The sign is the same as this one near the Glenrosa overpass.

The Okanagan Boys and Girls Club will continue to operate the Webber Road Community Centre for another five years now that West Kelowna council has approved a new lease agreement. In 2001, the former Webber Road elementary school was leased under an agreement between the regional district and Central Okanagan School District for $1 per year. Ever since, it has operated the building as a community centre, according to a staff report reviewed by council Tuesday. The term of the agreement with the school district is 20 years, ending Aug. 31, 2021.

The boys and girls club has operated the facility since 2001, offering programs to children, youth and families in West Kelowna. “It is most specifically utilized by citizens in the Glenrosa neighbourhood,” states the report. Statistics supplied by the club show there are 483 children as registered members of the facility. In 2009 there were 51,981 recorded users at the facility, including those taking part in programs, services and facility rentals. The community centre offers a number of programs, including daycare, licensed childcare, toddler and preschool programs and recreation programs for children and teens.

Adult and senior programs and day camps are also offered. The district contributes $25,000 annually toward the facility, which made a $5,095 profit in 2009. “In return for the DWK investment, the West Kelowna community receives a fully operational community centre and rental facility with programs that the municipality would not be able to provide to the community without a much larger financial investment,” states the staff report. West Kelowna council agreed the facility is well used and needed and approved signing of the fiveyear agreement, as well as continuing to approve a yearly contribution of $25,000.

Our capitalistic system works on financial consequences


n my July 4 column, entitled “Financial consequences needed for loss of life in this province,” I argued in favour of being able to bring a lawsuit to recover financial compensation for the loss of a loved one. I used the example of a woman in the Lower Mainland whose mother had died needlessly because a health care worker had failed to change the batteries in her ventilator. Because the daughter didn’t lose any money as a result of her mother’s death, there was no claim. It’s not just the elder-


Paul Hergott ly and infirm whose lives, under our laws, have no value in terms of compensation. It is also children. If your child is killed by a negligent driver, you actually save money because children are expensive to raise. As such, you have no

claim. Well, it’s a two-edged sword. If there’s compensation for those who lose loved ones, where does the compensation come from? I have friends who work in the health care field and one of them actually reads my column. This young lady is a licensed practical nurse. My column gave her chills. Over a beer or two, she explained that she entered the health care field because of a passion for helping people.

Like most others in the field, she does her very best to serve the patients under her care. She works for an employer. She doesn’t decide her workload. She doesn’t set up the systems that should be put in place to ensure that ventilator batteries are looked after. She is placed in a work environment that she had no input into creating She is given a workload that could invite errors. If she makes an innocent mistake and someone dies as a result,

should she lose her life savings? Absolutely not. A health care worker who, by mistake, causes someone’s death, would never be personally liable to pay financial compensation. No, the employer would take the heat. The one who has the responsibility and resources to ensure effective systems are put in place, and to ensure there is sufficient staffing, would bear the liability. Of course, employers have insurance. The thing is, the cost

of insurance increases if there are claims. Claims for compensation or wrongful death, or the threat of those claims, would give employers the incentive to make sure that there are no wrongful deaths in their facilities.

Gymnastics club offers programs for all ages Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

The flexibility of Westsiders, young and old, is improving at the West Kelowna Gymnastics Club. Owner Kendra Leptich says gymnastics classes are populated by those from 16 months to 60 years of age. The sport has benefits in flexibility, conditioning and strength training. “They learn a lot of balance.” She noted the conditioning and flexibility from gymnastics can aid performance in other sports. The club has members who participate in both tae kwon do and ballet and gymnastics is seen as a bonus for ballet dancers, as it helps with tumbling and the skills needed in more contemporary and modern dance. Lessons start at the age

of 16 months, with balancing. Leptich said babies will start on the floor, simply climbing up and over apparatus. The small children step up onto different blocks to gain balance and strength. They also learn to maintain balance coming down to prevent a fall. From there it’s a progression to the basic skills in gymnastics for the parallel bars, balance beam, trampoline and floor. Leptich noted new gymnasts learn how to jump off and on equipment properly and how to roll out. Even the basic skill of knowing how to roll out of a fall has benefits outside the gym. Leptich said kids can get pushed at school, or slip off the monkey bars. “It teaches them how to land properly without injury.” Leptich noted that as

gymnasts progress, some specialize in different areas or on a different apparatus. “Some of them are great at pullovers, some at cartwheels. But we make them do full circuits, so we make them use all parts of their body.” When kids begin as preschoolers—at three or four—their classes involve flexibility, balancing and conditioning but incorporate games. The games teach them all the basic skills. At five or six, kids move on to a national program, such as Jumpstart or Cangym. Leptich said those programs provide the basis for both competitive and recreational gymnastics. The skills are the same, but being competitive demands more training hours in the gym. The sport is not limited to children. Leptich said the adult classes have

contained many fathers who play hockey and used to be gymnasts throughout high school. “They’ve lost core strength and flexibility.” She noted that if someone was able to do the splits at age 16, the gymnastics club is able to take someone at the age of 45 and get them to that point again. Leptich said regaining lost flexibility can be difficult. “If you’re dedicated and keep at it, you will get it back.” She pointed out that many adults don’t realize that gymnastics draws heavily on the core and requires a great deal of strength. “They think it’s not difficult. But when they get up on the rings and do a pike hold, their arms are shaking like jelly.” Leptich opened the Westside gym last September, with classes start-

It’s never to late to get start a fitness program—trust me


f you wish you were healthier, or have regrets about past lifestyle choices, it isn’t too late to make changes that can improve your quality of life. When clients admit to having a bad weekend of over-eating, drinking or not exercising, I always tell them to let it go and get on with their fitness journey. Slipping is not great but it isn’t the end of the world. Getting dejected because of what has already occurred doesn’t help. The same holds true for less than perfect lifestyle choices.


Nina Heyes If you’re at a point where you want to make changes, focus on where you would like to be over the next couple of months. No matter how bad things may have been you can still make changes that will positively impact your health. I’ve heard people say that they have smoked

their entire lives and quitting in their 60s won’t make any difference as the harm is already done. Consider that after just one year of quitting your risk of coronary artery disease becomes half of what it was as a smoker. Type-2 diabetics will often opt out of exercise because they feel that it is too late once the diagnosis has been made and their disease will have to be managed exclusively with drugs. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, exercise is an integral part of diabetes management. Daily moderate bouts of cardiovascular activity can im-

prove muscle sensitivity to insulin, improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels and help to improve blood sugar control. Exercise decreases the risk of heart disease which is common in type two diabetics and can reduce body weight which is a risk factor for contracting the disease. Arthritis sufferers can be caught in a vicious cycle when it comes to incorporating healthy lifestyle changes. Pain can be a deterrent from wanting to become more active, but in truth, moderate exercise can help to decrease and control pain.

A physiotherapist can design a program that will ensure joint safety and give specific directions regarding intensity with perhaps modifications during flare ups. Low back pain affects almost everyone at some point in their lives. Prevention through core strengthening and proper lifting techniques is essential, but if already injured, many folks would much prefer to stay immobile in an attempt to lessen pain. For most injuries, movement is the best way to a speedy recovery. Again, your physician or physiotherapist should as-

sess your specific condition, but most times a light exercise program will be prescribed as soon as possible. Bear in mind that excess weight can contribute to low back pain, and in many instances weight loss (through exercise and good nutrition) will alleviate a great deal of ongoing pain. Overweight people can sometimes just give up on trying to lose weight. Perhaps they have subjected themselves to yo-yo dieting and wreaked havoc on their metabolisms. Their weight may have discouraged them from exercis-

ing due to joint discomfort, embarrassment and/ or feelings of hopelessness. It is never too late to try to get your weight under control. Even the loss of just a few pounds can have a positive impact on risk of heart disease, many types of cancer, low back pain and even self esteem. It is never too late to change your lifestyle for the better. There really is no time like the present. Nina Heyes is a fitness director and certified personal trainer at BodyFit Fitness in West Kelowna.

Science delivers repeated blows to climate change deniers


t must be difficult, if not downright embarrassing, to be a climate change denier these days. After all, the scientists they’ve attacked have been exonerated, London’s Sunday Times newspaper ran a retraction and apology for an article deniers were using to discredit climate change science, and more and more denier “experts” are being exposed as shills for industry or just disingenuous clowns. (Naomi Oreskes’s excellent book Merchants of Doubt offers insight into how the deniers operate.) Meanwhile, evidence that fossil fuel emissions contribute to dangerous climate change just keeps building. We use the term deniers deliberately. People who deny overwhelming scientific evidence without pro-



David Suzuki viding any compelling evidence of their own and who remain steadfast in their beliefs even as every argument they propose gets shot down do not demonstrate the intellectual rigour to be called skeptics. Meanwhile, evidence of the harm our fossil fuel addiction causes beyond climate change mounts every day, as oil spews into the Gulf of Mexico and as industry and governments spend huge sums of money to keep us hooked. Let’s take a look at some recent events. First, three independ-

ent investigations found that the unimaginatively named “climategate” was anything but the scandal or “nail in the coffin of anthropogenic global warming” that deniers claimed. Although the reports, the last of which was released in early July, found that East Anglia University climate scientists at the centre of the hacked emails brouhaha could have been more open about sharing data, their science was rigorous and sound. And a review of criticisms of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s global assessment of climate change found that, despite “a very small number of near-trivial errors in about 500 pages,” the report contained “no errors that would undermine the main conclusions.” Yet another independent study supported Penn

State University climatologist Michael Mann. Deniers have been attacking Prof. Mann’s research for years. Another blow to the deniers’ arsenal came when London’s Sunday Times was forced in June to run a full apology



and retraction for an article it published in January questioning the findings of the IPCC report on rainfall changes in the Amazon. The Times admitted that it had misrepre-

weekend practices. The orchestra’s first concerts were in March 1960. Back then, it had a budget of $1,625. This weekend’s OSO benefit is the first the winery’s Reserve Concert Series, featuring noted jazz artists and highly acclaimed Canadian operatic and symphony performers. The concerts will be held outdoors at an amphitheatre with the lake and Monashee Mountains as a backdrop. Other concerts will include Grammy-nominated musician Wil Campa and his 13-piece orchestra from Cuba, who will perform Aug. 7. On Sept. 3, Juno award winning jazz guitarist Jesse Cook play. The finale to the series will be a benefit concert on Sept. 18 by the Canadian Tenors. Special pre-concert dinner packages winery’s Terrace restaurant, are also available.

into tar sands pollution of water and destroyed all draft copies of the report. And Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach paid $55,800 to place a half-page ad in the Washington Post promoting tar sands oil and a pipeline to carry it to the U.S.—after the newspaper refused to publish his arguments on its opinion pages. Meanwhile, Premier Stelmach has joined with Alberta and federal government officials and oil industry representatives to promote tar sands oil in the U.S. and to water down any U.S. regulations that might reduce fossil fuel consumption. Of course, the deniers will ignore the evidence. Nothing would please us more than if they were right. Life really would be easier if fossil fuels like oil and coal did not cause environmental damage or

pose risks to life on our small planet. But this is the real world, with real scientific evidence pointing to the urgent need to make changes in the way we live and get energy. We have many ways to confront the threat of catastrophic climate change, from individual efforts to conserve energy and pollute less to government initiatives to encourage research and development into clean energy technology. It’s time to listen to the people who continue to look at the facts in the face of baseless accusations, break-ins, and threats. We need to listen to those are trying to do something about our predicament rather than wishing it away. —with Faisal Moola David Suzuki is a scientist and broadcaster based in Vancouver.

As their arguments fall apart, deniers have stepped up their efforts, even going so far as to send hate mail and death threats to scientists who are working to ensure our survival in the face of the greatest danger we face. And then we have the spectacle of the fossil fuel industry and petro-fueled governments doing all they can to prolong our addiction to nonrenewable and polluting sources of energy as oil continues to gush into the Gulf of Mexico, threatening bird, marine, and human life, as well as local economies.

Law suit threat won’t force government to back down


ou have to shake your head when one of the worst criminals in Canadian history threatens to sue you. Has the world turned upside down? The government recently decided that criminals serving time in federal prison should not be eligible for seniors’ benefits when they turn 65. The stark reality that senior convicts have been collecting benefits came into vivid focus when we

Stockwell Day suddenly realized that serial child killer Clifford Olsen was collecting his

cheques the same way our parents and grandparents were. The government has now declared that since any convicts who are still in jail at age 65 are already being fully cared for by the taxpayer, they should not also be eligible for seniors’ payments—at least not until they have finished serving their time. Under no circumstances are we considering changing our pos-

ition. Olsen and others will no longer be getting their cheques while they’re doing time. ••• Our Pulp and Paper Green Transformation fund continues to yield big benefits. I was in Prince George a few days ago to announce a joint-venture with the Canfor mill there. The new technology will reduce the sulphur emissions by more than 60 per cent and also will allow the mill to use its own liquid by-product to power the operation without drawing energy from the grid. Canada’s forestry industry once again is leading the way in environmental technologies. The next day I was at UBC making a funding announcement for two world class projects. One deals with the re-

duction into the atmosphere of the effects of a full range of aerosols in a variety of industries. The other project deals with something near and dear to the hearts of



men everywhere—technology to fight prostate cancer. I actually got to operate (not on a living patient) with the latest of equipment which is used to go right into the gland itself to perform biopsies. I hope I will never have to be on the receiv-

playing it. Great game. But let’s hope the FIFA folks drop their ridiculous rule of not using video replay on contested calls. In the dying minutes of Sunday’s game the Netherlands clearly should have had a corner kick but the referee said no. And many announcers said Spain’s goal was offside (looked like it on my TV). Anyway, there’s something refreshing about watching the CFL this week and seeing guys getting knocked down with pulverizing hits, then leaping right back up onto their feet without rolling around on the ground grabbing their ankles as if they had been stung by a bee.

Time to clean out that garage and organize its contents


ell it finally feels like summer and you may be out and about with family and friends for water fun and frolic. But this is also a great time of year to get those chores done that require outside work. So, lets look at the garage during a time of year when a good purge will be beneficial as well as a great time to host a garage sale. I want to focus on solutions to create a more useful space in your garage—somewhere you can feel proud of when you watch the doors open. Now you know better than anyone else that you need a storage area for the family to drop shoes, coats, school bags come September. What better area then a multi-purpose storage solution for all that gear. Often, cubbies can become several black holes with things stuffed into them. Instead, the use of colour-coordinated areas for each family member ad-


Sallie Ritchey dresses organization of designated space. For example, straw baskets of orange, yellow, red, blue or green can be slid into each cubby for the use of storing gloves and hats, flip flops or runners, umbrellas and garden clogs. Coat hooks or pegs also are an instant coat catch. Rather then hangers and a closet with door, this will ensure even the most lazy person will toss their jacket on it. Personalize them with a photo of the person that you want that hook designated to above the hook. The hand will quickly be drawn to it when they see a picture of themselves. A multi-purpose rack system can ensure sports gear is in its place and

seen. Wire baskets can be a great home for ice skates, baseball gloves, tennis rackets and bicycle helmets. They can be hooked onto the wall for better stability, and are cost effective. If simple bookshelves are all that budget can afford, they will serve you well, for a short period of time. Just remember to anchor them to the wall for

extra stability. The garage is also an area that a man can take extreme pride in. This is that area of 10 per cent that I have mentioned time and time again—a space a guy needs for his sanity. This means that there needs to be space for tools, gadgets, sports gear and seasonal items. One of my favourite storage items is an oversized overhead shelf. It can house the

Christmas tree box in the summer and the beer cooler in the winter. With a six-foot ladder, you can hoist up a bin or box, at a moment’s notice, for a project at hand, such as the Christmas tree, as well as outdoor lights. No word of a lie, my friends in Calgary, will have their lights up as early as September, as you never know when the snow will fly. Enough said. One of my favour-

ite items of late is the 21-cubic inch refrigerator/ freezer and trash compactor. As it is on casters, you can roll it about the garage for ease and access. Resembling a gear box, it coordinates with all your other components in that space. Now, for a finishing touch. If you prefer not to have the floor finished in concrete, you could go to the newest craze that came out this fall. Fiber-

flor is a wonderful product that is mould and mildew resistant. I have it down in my garage, and there is no mould at all. Available in a metal grid in gun-metal gray, as well as a metallic gray, it’s my favourite.
