RAISING THE

CULTURAL

BAR N

othing goes with good coffee like a great song and space to relax, and the Streaming Café certainly sets the bar in Kelowna. Beyond the cutting-edge musicians streaming through their doors— and out to a wider audience via live Internet shows—is a very unique business model founded on social responsibility, creativity and Club Penguin business smarts. As Kelowna turns its focus to building a cultural identity, pushing the arts to a more prominent role in the city’s future, the company behind the Streaming Café demonstrates how ingenuity and artistic expression really can change the face of Kelowna.

Disney profits build Kelowna’s social scene Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

When Dave Krysko, and his Club Penguin partners, Lance Priebe and Lane Merrifield, signed on the dotted line with Disney, Kelowna jumped on technology like it was the last train to opportunity and animation was the bullet express. In the intervening years, plenty have considered the economic impact of the game—the jobs, the draw for other technology companies, animation companies, new young talent. But few stopped to ponder where the $700 million dollars Disney paid for Club Penguin might go, or how its creators, and their talent for envisioning new realities, would influence this city. Sitting on Leon Avenue, on a traditionally notorious corner in a neighbourhood once known for it’s seedy underbelly, is a small sliver of what the Krysko family has done. It’s called the Streaming Café. “My mother-in-law, she’s gifted in that, she can see light in anybody, or the darkest places— like this café, like our office. These are challenges that most people would shy away from,” explains Dustin Sargent, son-inlaw to Krysko and his wife Donara. Sargent is the spokesperson for the family business, Davara Enterprises. A merger of the

CONTRIBUTED

CÉCILE DOO-KINGUÉ takes the stage in front of the Streaming Café’s distinctive wood rounds, the backdrop for the live-streamed shows. family matriarch and patriarch, Dave and Donara, Davara allows the Krysko family to build their version of a sustainable, healthy community with a vision to spur social change, attract new business, respect the environment, and bolster the arts. With overtones of Christian values, their philosophy permeates every venture they touch. From their multifamily rental housing, about to go up on Leathead Road, to their 12 addiction recovery houses for women, to their urban

organic farm in the Mission, Davara’s reach holds seemingly endless possibility with the café providing both a geographic and philosophic centrepiece. And aside from the obvious—they did strike it rich in animation—the arts are very important to the Krysko family’s vision. Dave Krysko was a musician before launching into business. One son is a musician on the coast, where he’s building a similar venue, as the family seems to recognize that art, creativity and success

don’t need to stand in opposition to one another. “Learning how to bridge that gap between what exactly art is and what makes it financially viable has always been a conundrum,” Sargent admits. With the café, it all makes sense. The music draws people in, the people create a change in atmosphere on the street, soon other businesses follow—or so they hypothesized. When the idea for the Streaming Café was conceived, the family already operated the Karis So-

ciety, providing recovery housing, primarily for woman, to those coping with addiction and mental health issues. Karis, of Greek origin, means grace and the name encompasses their approach to their work. “Some of our ladies have left and come back and left and come back. We work with them, realizing everybody needs a second chance,” said Peter Lees, manager of operations for the Karis Society. Going into a neighbourhood like the Leon Avenue spot with the re-

covery houses already under their wing, let Davara see past the dingy streetfront and social challenges and recognize the potential of the heritagestyle venue. Two and a half years later, they’re pouring coffee produced in the Lower Mainland’s Oughtred Coffee & Tea, serving locally grown food from their organic farm, Little Church Organics, and providing Canadian musicians a unique way to showcase their talents in a room filled with local art. In short, the café is a microcosm of the family’s

world view and the music, streamed live over the Internet, takes the whole thing out to a global audience. Initially, finding acts to play the venue was no easy task, Sargent admits, but with musicians like David Wilcox, Corb Lund, Julie Doiron, Greg Sczebel, and Jen Lane already in their online library, the Streaming is quickly picking up steam. Krysko’s original company, New Horizon Productions, handles the Internet component, which is about to be moved from its current home in a van beside the premises to the brand new building Davara is erecting next door. It’s the first new building in the downtown core in years, and it’s already fully leased. Davara worked with Martin Berthiaume, of Studio East to West, to develop the streaming solution, the team spending countless hours in the beginning working out a strategy. “Knowing that when we opened there was still this habitual congregation of people hanging outside the doors that would probably smash the windows in to get a bottle, there was no alcohol. “We were open seven days a week, for long hours and had security guards outside,” said Sargent. “And we put the equipment in a van so we could drive it away at the See Streaming A6

ner, the Streaming Café even caters to families, starting shows early at 7 p.m. and selling alcohol. The early hour makes the music accessible to young musicians and allows anyone in the coun-

They will soon be handling the live-streaming portion of the business out of a new studio space being built alongside. The roof of the Streaming Café will become a patio for the corporate building and a street-level patio, with garage door-style access, will open the performance base up in summer months. “We’re expanding at sustainability. As the influence of the Streaming Café reaches more people, and there’s more interest, we can open the doors longer,” said Sargent.

Although there does seem to be significant interest already, there’s a massive game-plan to go further. At the moment, the shows fill the café and draw another 1,500 fans online, with regular viewers in Hong Kong, China and Europe. In East Kelowna, their farm inn, Bottega (www. bo.ttega.com), is being developed to complement the coffee house. The building is up and running in the softlaunch phase and, though programming has yet to be established, Sargent said Davara hopes to offer traditional retreat-style accommodation to supplement artist residencies during slower months. “I can’t really find something that’s similar to it,” he said, noting it’s in the vein of the Banff Arts

Centre, but different. The official launch will not be until spring, and he’s tight-lipped on the subject for now. A similar property, in Germany, is also being developed with some overseas business partners, he notes. Musicians from Germany have already made the leap, playing the Streaming Café’s regular concert schedule, and it’s hoped the exchange between the café, Bottega and Europe will foster new talent and build new relationships. “The idea was to create a platform for musicians who maybe don’t have the tools to announce themselves on a larger level,” said Sargent. “The entire music industry is shifting toward using the Internet as a tool, instead of Internet

being the thing that destroyed their ability to make money at it, and I think that’s what this is all about.” Thus far, the musicians seem impressed. “We have a really good standing with artists and we’re really proud of that,” said Michael Donley, the man behind the music. He came out of a successful band himself—the Sleddogs. Donley selects the performers and manages the shows, which have become interactive experiences with the online audience invited to weigh in the performance. Almost every artist’s mom or aunt or uncle watches and adds a little unique commentary, and almost every artist apologizes for looking a little rough around the edges on a night their family

could be watching from the living room couch. “With the Internet, we don’t know, we could have a room full of people watching the show,” said Donley. “And in addition to that exposure, the artists are all walking away with a product they can take and show to people in the business.” Davara’s vision includes one day training people from the recovery homes as baristas at the Streaming Café or to work the gardens at Little Church Organics; but for now they’ve built an amazing hangout, changed the life of a downtown corner and managed to profit. “We’re just looking forward to the expansion of the building,” Sargent said. “It’s going to be really the last piece of the puzzle to creating a total change to a little corner of the world. “Nonetheless it’s key, and it’s key to attracting more creative business operators in the downtown area.” In addition to Davara, the Kryskos have a foundation, the Krysko Foundation.

Aliens invade the museum Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

They can destroy entire ecosystems and there are already 4,000 of them in B.C.—and the number is growing. Aliens Among Us is a travelling Royal B.C. Museum exhibition about alien species. It’s just been set up at the Okanagan Heritage Museum on Ellis Street, ready for an official open-

ing on Saturday. Not all 4,000 are profiled, but a select number have been brought to Kelowna so you can see what critters such as a starling, a raccoon, a praying mantis and a smallmouth bass look like up close and personal. Not all alien species have proven to be harmful to native plants, animals, insects and fish, but others can be costly and destructive.

Aliens are the second most devastating threat to biodiversity next to habitat loss, notes Patti Kilback, associate director of the museum. They compete unfairly with native species because they’ve often left their natural predators behind, and they can push native species out of their homes.

egy for Canada, estimated the cost to Canada to combat just 16 invasive alien species at $34.5 billion and that’s increasing as the climate warms. “It’s something people don’t think about, but it’s a growing problem in B.C.,” commented Kilback. Often, they’re good adapters and they arrive here in many ways: in ships or rail containers, on fruit or vegetables or on plants. The exhibit includes a running list of the names of alien species, and you can stand in front of it for a long time before it begins over again. “It’s frightening to see,” commented Kilback. Some of those profiled in the exhibit are already in the Okanagan, and others are on their way. For instance, the European Starling was introduced by a Shakespeare fan who brought a few dozen over and released them in New York’s Central Park in the late 1800s. They didn’t reach B.C. until 1945, and today there are an estimated 200 million in North America. Starlings outcompete native songbirds and huge flocks can destroy acres of berry crops in hours. Purple loosestrife was brought here in the early 1900s, partly because of its medicinal properties and partly as a landscape plant, but today it has invaded local wetlands,

ALIEN AWARENESS is the theme of a new travelling exhibit at the Kelowna

Museum. Marketing special events coordinator Lindsay Canning is busy overseeing the showcases full of invasive alien species, from plants to amphibians and beyond, that will be on public display starting Saturday. choked out native plants and virtually stopped the flow of water in places. Knapweeds are another invader that has cost millions in damage to natural ecosystems and rangelands. It’s believed it came over in some agricultural seeds, and rapidly became established and spread. A chemical in its root prevents other plants in the vicinity from sprouting, helping to establish a monoculture where it gains a foothold. Zebra mussels have taken over mussel populations in the Great Lakes and they’re headed this way. Some aliens are surprising, like the common earthworm, the giant house spider and the pray-

ing mantis, the latter of which was apparently brought in from Ontario by Okanagan farmers looking for a control for grasshoppers in the 1930s. The good news is that everyone can have a hand in control, by learning more about aliens; using native plants in their landscapes instead of imports; by not releasing pets, such as red-eared slider turtles, into the wild; and by making their property unattractive to non-native squirrels, rats and birds. An innovative feature of this exhibit is the virtual museum that accompanies it—an interactive website at: http://alienspecies. royalbcmuseum.bc.ca. The exhibit will be here in Kelowna until Feb.

Treatment prognosis is looking better Alistair Waters

fewer side effects than the traditional method of implanting tiny irradiated “seeds” in the prostate to fight the disease, said Halperin. The pilot project, led here by internationally regarded radiation oncologist Dr. Juanita Krook has already treated 15 men diagnosed with prostate cancer. The first patient in the program, Ralph Ormerod, said he was very pleased with the procedure and the outcome, noting he went from diagnosis last year to completing his full treatment in just seven months. “I now ride my mountain bike three times a week and I feel great,” said Ormerod, 63. He said he was particularly pleased that the new treatment allowed his

ASSISTANT EDITOR

A pilot project here to improve the treatment of prostate cancer is showing promising results and could lead to improved outcomes across B.C. in future, say doctors at the Sindi Ahluwalia Hawkins Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior. Dr. Ross Halperin, professional practice leader in radiation oncology at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s centre, told a fund-raising B.C. Cancer Foundation luncheon in Kelowna that the high-dose rate brachytherapy pilot project could prove superior to current treatments used to fight prostate cancer. The treatment, which sends radiation through tiny catheters placed in the prostate gland, may have

doctor to isolate areas of the prostate for radiation, a move Halperin said can keep other more sensitive parts like the urethra from being hit with high doses of radiation. In B.C., prostate cancer strikes one in eight men and the brachytherapy program that currently exists at KGH (using planted seeds) has seen the number of patients its sees increase every year since it started in 2004. Last year 138 men were treated at the unit. Based on the findings of the HDR brachyther-

apy project here, it will be used across B.C. to treat prostate cancer sufferers in future. It is already being used in Ontario and Quebec and has shown good results, said Halperin. The treatment also shows promise for the treatment of breast cancer in women, said Halperin. At the luncheon, he stressed the need for philanthropy to assist research when it comes to cancer treatments such as the pilot project here. While Canada has some of the best cancer

treatment outcomes in the world and B.C. has some of the best in the country, provincial funds pay for operational costs and some equipment, not research. Money for research comes mainly from donations collected by groups like the B.C. Cancer Foundation and passed onto to the B.C. Cancer Agency. At the luncheon, which the foundation wants to turn into an annual event, $13,000 was raised in 90 minutes and added to by a $10,000 donation from local businessman Brad

Vote for candidate who makes most sense to you

E

ach election pundits in Canada’s apathetic ’burbs dump dour remarks on the growing heap of rhetoric surrounding democracy. “If you don’t go to the polls, you don’t have a right to complain,” is the most common refrain when the topic of voter-apathy arises. Of course, that’s just ludicrous. If the right to complain could be taken away, Stephen Harper would have done it months ago. That brings us to favoured refrain No. 2: “Around the world people are dying to do what you aren’t.” That’s true. But then again, those people aren’t mulling over who best represents their needs in mind-bogglingly dull matters, like sewage sys-

KATHARTIC tems and development

permits in privilegedrenched cul-de-sacs. Even writing those two government functions makes me want to join Kelowna’s 80 per Kathy cent, go unseasonably Michaels bronze and stop voting entirely. But, then again, I’d be stripping away the icing on the cake of my favourite pastime—judging. How often do we get to judge the people who make the decisions that impact our lives? I mean, sure, we can say to our friends,“Are they doing this for the right reasons?” with a knowing side-glance. But colouring in the bubble next to a name that had the least offensive— sometimes most inspiring—campaign is a uniquely gratifying experience.

Sometimes, admittedly, there’s not much to go on. In the last civic race “economy” had yet to become a fourletter-word and candidates were just pleasant. This time, hope springs eternal with what’s been a colourful bid for office. Among the cast of characters repeatedly making my day are Cal Condy, the joke-cracking mayoralty candidate, who sang his way through the early days of the campaign. Ken Chung was recently deemed the dark horse in the running, but when dubious decisions came to light shortly thereafter he saw that title snuffed out. There’s the mayor who had the gall to take a campaign contribution from firefighters ... it’s actually hard to muster judgment, but Walter Gray certainly did during a forum this week. Speaking of which, he really is the bright light of it all.

Say what you like about the man— he’s a saviour for business or his values haven’t kept pace with the electorate’s—but he offers delightful conversation fodder. Best to date was his Hooterville comment, during this week’s mayoralty forum. Hooterville, the audience learned, is what Gray calls Rutland. It’s a TV reference from a time before flat screens, and basically can be subbed in for “backwoods.” It’s not the worst insult lobbed Rutland’s way, but don’t say that to those populating a Castanet forum with vitriolic remarks. They’re about to get him with their pitchforks for the politically awkward gaffe. It’s fabulously entertaining, which brings me to my pithy one liner to encourage voting goes as so: “Get out and judge which wacky candidate made most sense to you. Democracy depends on it.”

ELECT

Issues, beefs, beliefs leading up to local election Election from A10 What would happen if Kelowna could muster a 30 per cent turnout? 40 per cent? 50 per cent? There is strength in numbers and change will occur in direct proportion to voter turnout. Change is screaming for your attention, your voice and your vote. Cedar Avenue needs your voice. Downtown revitalization needs your voice. Vacant KSS land needs your voice. Public safety needs your voice. Sustainable development needs your voice. Job creation needs your voice. We, the voters of Kelowna, have a golden opportunity this election to influence and facilitate change. There are many quality candidates to tchoose from in this election. They need to hear your voice. A large turnout at the polls will send a strong message to the newly elected council that you want change. A large turnout at the polls is the best way for your voice to be heard, now, and in the future. A light voter turnout will be a kick in the pants for change. And Kelowtna. What will it be on the 19th, Kelowna? Whimper or roar? Bob Purdy, Kelowna To the editor: f I found an expensive looking flier in my mail box today. It was from FourChange.org. The flier lists 10 points as examples of poor government. None, except perhaps point three concerning the new Kelowna logo, would be of concern to me and the people I know. Point four, regarding the old KSS site, reveals how little FourChange.org knows about the current use of the site as a temporary off-leash dog park. According to one credible survey, the KSS site has 178 dog and people visits per day. It is needed in that residential area, and, until another suitable dog park location can be found downtown, it should remain as a dog park for residents and tourists who visit our city with their dogs. As to item six regarding 11 waterfront lots at Cedar Avenue, FourChange.org favours developers who want to eat up precious waterfront property when there is

plenty of space for them across the road from the lake. I too thought that council ought to have made a decision about the Cedar Avenue waterfront properties last summer. It was clear that the majority of Kelowna residents want the properties to be all park. However, I would rather have council thoroughly debate an issue, than have it rubber-stamp proposals that benefit developers over residents. Helen Schiele, Kelowna To the editor: I compliment the FourChange.org’s supporters for voicing their disapproval of the inept four councillors. With their wisdom they scrapped CD-21 with the support of the council; they voted in favour of the meaningless city logo, they sided with the province about the HOV lane; recently they have proposed breeding chickens in Kelowna backyards. These people oppose development downtown to please citizens who expect to keep Kelowna as pristine as it was a long time ago. These citizens may not need a job, may have a nice monthly pension. Walter Gray has been accused of having close ties with the old boys club. Do they refer to large or small size contractors, businesses and many more entrepeneurs, who take risks, invest money, hoping to make a profit. Definitely these investors want to make a profit; so does any one else out there who wants to take home a paycheque. So don’t hold it against successful people who also help people. Remember success breeds success. I appeal to the 80 per cent of eligible voters of any age to become involved in this great community by voting. We can all voice our opinions by participating and electing qualified officers. Stan Vasilly, Kelowna To the editor: All the candidates (mayoral or otherwise) and third parties that have referred to a “lack of leadership” on the current council are using this phrase as a euphemism for: “Didn’t/wouldn’t support the CD-21 zone.” Those in the know understand the code.

It is in Walter Gray’s interest to downplay CD21 zone—to even claim that it is dead—because he knows that this is an issue that still carries a lot of emotions for many voters. But I don’t believe him. If he is elected mayor, he will work to have it brought back. I would bet money (those behind) FourChange.org, have a vested interest in seeing CD21 revived—who do you think owns the old Silk FM building on the corner of Pandosy and Lawrence? The last time I looked it was vacant so somebody is paying taxes, not collecting rent, and especially not selling it for the inflated price that it would fetch if the CD-21 zone were revived. Alistair Waters (Capital News assistant editor) can believe that this election is not about the CD21 zone if he likes, but I’m afraid that that is just wishful thinking -- and exactly what those preaching about a “leadership deficit” want people to think. Craig Cote, Kelowna To the editor: If there was ever doubt that the current mayor and council have lost control when it comes to spending our tax dollars, two recent expenditures have confirmed our suspicions. They have now decided to spend $200,000 on a mural at the H2O Centre, twice what they had originally approved. They have also accepted city staff’s plan to upgrade Knox Mountain Park at a cost of $7 million over 15 years. While the common folk are feeling the pinch and businesses are struggling to survive, our socalled civic leaders are being led down the garden path by free-spending bureaucrats. It’s time we all take action and vote for a slate of representatives who will truly lead us in a fiscally sound and responsible direction. Jim Waters, Kelowna To the editor: Prior to the election that returned Sharon Shepherd as mayor, the strong impression I got was that council was very strongly in support of just about any development project that came their way, including of course the now famous CD-21. The current council, to its credit, voted this pro-

posal down and it now looks as if, through a revised OCP, council has come up with a locally-generated vision that keeps highrises from the waterfront, yet provides for residential densification of the downtown core. I would hardly call this indecisive or business unfriendly—terms that council is being labeled with. It must be noted that the current downturn in building activity results not from any action/inaction of council, but from the overall contraction of the economy and a significantly overbuilt supply of condominiums, neither of which can be laid at the feet of council. To a significant extent these condominiums are either unsold and unoccupied or owned by out-of-towners who don’t contribute to the densification of the downtown area, nor do they contribute to the local economy, beyond what they might spend during their vacation. What makes for a vibrant downtown core is the streetscape, which attracts people to live there on a full-time basis, not the number of storeys in an apartment building What this city needs are councillors and a mayor who have a broad view of the needs of the city, not people that represent special interests or a particular segment of the community. Jan Conradi, Kelowna To the editor: I attended (an early) Sharon Shepherd vs. Walter Gray mayoral debate and what a farce it was. It was very revealing that Gray could not find anything really wrong with Shepherd’s mayorship, despite the attacks upon her. This lady looked as if she had covered all

the basis, including refuting the charge that she is hostile to development. Her 20 year plan is a very impressive one. Whenever the moderator asked a question Gray was a study in garrulousness, interminably rambling on and on, regaling the audience with one stupefying anecdote after another. I found my eyes glazing over. Shepherd kept it short and sweet, relying on facts and not pie in the sky rhetoric. I came away thinking that Gray won’t be satisfied until Kelowna beach and City Park are just covered in skyscrapers, exactly what his chums, the developers, want. Laurence D. M. Marshall, Kelowna Question for the mayor of District of West Kelowna: In numerous press articles you have expressed considerable frustration in trying to get some important questions answered by the province regarding the WFN land swap. At the Oct. 25 West Kelowna council meeting, Coun. Rosalind Neis proposed a motion to get a legal opinion’ as to whether or not the DWK endorsement is required for this swap to be complete. The six councillors were split 3-3 on this motion and you, the mayor, cast your vote to turn down this very important motion which could only help protect the interests of the tax payers, including the main reservoir and water supply for the electors in the north end of the district. Do you not consider this as being irresponsible and failing to carry out your ‘due diligence’ as our mayor? Fran Kovacs, West Kelowna

Rutland town centre seeks revitalizing Barry Gerding EDITOR

The Uptown Rutland business community has a long wish list of improvements it would like to see in their town centre, but none are gaining much traction with the council or mayoral candidates. Deb Guthrie, executive director of the Uptown Rutland Business Association, says the downtown core has dominated the political debate thus far. “We recognize the importance people put to the

downtown core, but it’s one of three commercial centres identified in Kelowna, and one of them badly needs work,” said Guthrie, alluding to Rutland’s needs. “We can see now what the revitalization work started a decade ago is helping the Pandosy district to grow. We need to see that happen (in Rutland) as well. We haven’t seen much change here since the 1970s.” Guthrie says URBA is laying the groundwork for a building facade program, working in con-

junction with city hall to develop a business plan for inclusion in the 2013 city budget. “As much as we like the tax incentive revitalization concept the city is advocating, it doesn’t work for a lot of buildings in Rutland unless you tear them down for new ones and add square footage, and quite a few building owners aren’t in a position to do that,” Guthrie said. “So we feel the facade program is another way to help revitalize our area.” URBA also suffered a setback, she said, when

the Shepherd Road transit station proposal was put on the backburner. “The Shepherd Road extension is very important to us. We are told now something will come forward in the spring of 2012 between the city and regional transit. But the funding to do anything drys up in 2013, so it’s critical we get this done,” Guthrie said. She said the Shepherd Road station can lead to improvements to Roxby Park that borders on Highway 33, which city hall has put on hold pending approval of a final plan for the Shepherd bus loop. “Everything has kind of stopped because the transit development hasn’t happened. Whatever happens with Roxby Park has to tie in with the transit development.” Guthrie said URBA members have many issues with Highway 33, from snow removal to sidewalk improvements, but realize that because it is a provincial highway, it is the highways ministry that must be lobbied for those changes. “We understand that Highway 33 is just that,

a highway, but we’d like to see some beautification projects happen along that corridor, and to see it be more pedestrian friendly for local businesses,” Guthrie noted. Speaking of business, Guthrie said URBA advocates for more business-minded people to be sitting around the council table. “I know that concern is out there from other people, but we feel the pendulum may have swung too far away the business community in recent years,” Guthrie noted. She cited the example of the John Howard Society facility on Rutland Road North, which took away parking spaces for nearby businesses to accommodate the new building, currently under construction. “We would have liked to see some retail or office space component included on the ground floor, but that was something neither the city or John Howard people wanted to get involved in. “And the loss of parking spaces resulted in two businesses having to move elsewhere.”

▼ VOTING

Interest high for advance polls Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Plenty of people in Kelowna are taking the opportunity to vote early. After a turnout described by city officials as heavy on the first day of the advance polls for the Saturday’s civic election last week, a larger number of voters cast ballots on the second day of advance polling on Wednesday. A total of 2,685 people showed up to cast ballots at three advance poll locations Wednesday, pushing to total number of advance ballots cast over the first two days to 4,748. That number easily eclipsed the total recorded during the two days of advance voting prior to the 2008 civic election. But election officials do not want to see the strong early numbers result in the same low-voter overall turnout that occurred three years ago. Despite strong early num-

bers in 2008, the overall voter turnout was a paltry 19.4 per cent. This year, there are four days of advance polls, with yesterday and today added to the first two days. The official election day is Saturday. As will be the case on Saturday, the advance poll today will be open at City Hall from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The City Hall polling station features a voter-assist terminal, which provides those with disabilities and other special needs to mark their ballot privately and independently. On Saturday, there will be 10 polling stations available for voters to choose from, including one at Orchard Park Shopping Centre. That one, however, will close at 6 p.m. when the mall closes. All other polling locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Other polling location include A.S. Matheson Elementary School (2090 Gordon Drive), City Hall, the East Kelowna Community Hall (2704 East Kelowna Road), the Okanagan Mission Community Hall (4409 Lakeshore Road), the Kelowna Family Y in Rutland (375 Hartman Road), the Parklinson Recreation Centre, Springvalley Middle School (350 Ziprick Road), St. Paul’s United Church (3131 Lakeshore Road) and Watson Road Elementary School in Glenmore (475 Yates Road). To be eligible to vote in Kelowna, you must live in the city, be 18 years of age or older, have lived in B.C. for at least the last six months and be a Canadian citizen. You do not need to own property in the city to be eligible to vote. Nonresident property owners can also vote in the civic election. Take two pieces of identification with you to the polling station (you can choose which one you want to vote at), one showing your signature and another showing your address.

CIVIC ELECTION

Arts community pleased with feedback Mayoral candidate ▼ CAL CONDY

offers new vision for city transit plan Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Cal Condy says he has re-drawn the city’s transit map. t While he did not have it on hand to display to the public at Tuesday night’s all-canaidates meeting, the Kelowna mayoral hopeful said it reflects a better transit system, something he would like to see in the city. Condy, who had the audience laughing for a good part of the forum with his quips to questions that he was asked, got serious when the issue of transit came up. He said he was “flabbergasted” at the lack of control the city currently has over its transit system, something incumbent mayor Sharon Shepherd, as well as her counterparts in Peachland, West Kelowna and Lake Country, have all been campaigning to change for years. t The mayors hope the announcement of an audit of B.C. Transit’s Interior operations by Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom will result in more decisionmaking power for the municipalities that are served by the systems. “It’s ludicrous to build areas with no transit,” said Condy. The system in the Central Okanagan is a partnership between B.C. Transit, the municipalities and riders (via k the fare box). t t While all three contribute the money used to pay for operation of the system, B.C. Transit in Victoria has the final say on what routes go where. As a result, the city has been unable to get a bus route to the Capital News Centre recreation building and H2O aquatic centre in the Mission. That has not sat well with locals for some time and most local politicians and candidates in the civic election say they want to see the current situation changed. Former mayor Walter Gray, who sat in the B.C Transit board when he was mayor, vowed to “fix” the tcurrent transit problems within the first 120 days of his term if elected mayor. After hearing Gray make his promise, Condy said he wanted Gray on his transit team if he is elected mayor. “Well, I like your map,” said Gray. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

On the whole, Kelowna’s arts community is feeling pretty positive going into this year’s civic election. With the new cultural plan promising more stable funding streams, reviews slated to help tweak trouble spots down the line and, overall, more attention being paid than ever before to arts and culture-related industries, it makes sense. But ensuring council

maintains the aims of the plan come budget season will be the responsibility of the city councillors elected this weekend. “You need to make sure you’ve actually talked to all the people you’re voting for,” said Tracy Ward, who runs the Rotary Centre for the Arts. With 40 council candidates and five mayoral candidates, Ward said she’s worried voters are getting lost in the sea of names. Ward said she’s been extremely impressed

with the efforts of council to date and is more concerned about ensuring the incoming councillors understand what the arts sector is trying to do in general. “I think it’s really important that there is municipal elections,” she said. “We’ve got excellent mayoral candidates. Mayor Shepherd has been great, but people do need to vote.” At the Central Okanagan Arts Council, the sentiment is much the same.

“We’re also extremely thrilled that there has been a cultural plan created and that it has been accepted,” said Elke Lange, arts council executive director. “That’s a very positive thing for the community.” On the whole, given the economic climate, Lange said they’re very pleased funding to the arts has not been reduced at the city level, at least to organizations and events. “The fact that there’s a cultural dialogue remaining open is really import-

ant,” she said. The Central Okanagan Arts Council sent surveys to the candidates and found response were universally supportive. Still for smallerarts organizations like the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Arts, ensuring the ongoing financial support of the city is critical given the clawback of funds at the provincial level. “Obviously, I’m looking for individuals who understand the importSee Feedback A14

CIVIC ELECTION â–ź SOCIAL MEDIA

Candidates put ‘Net to the test Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

This election is arguably the first time social media has been all but omnipresent in local politics. In Kelowna’s 2008 municipal election, many of the platforms utilized today were just for catching up with friends. Today nearly all candidates have been tweeting their political platitudes and getting Facebook friendly, either directly to their online followers or through the hashtag #kelownavotes. Even political forums have been augmented by those with a heightened understanding of the way of the web. Among their ranks is Kyle Harms, a UBC Okanagan student behind events like the Vote Mob which, organized through social media, aimed at getting young people involved in the political process during the last federal election. This election, he’s still paying attention to the issues and trying to get his peers involved, so he took it upon himself to Tweet-out a Tuesday night debate. The effort made it possible for the demographic that’s loath to go to political forums to follow the event. “I think it went pretty well‌especially because it was people from the younger generation taking part,â€? said Harms. Although he’s yet to scrutinize the stats, he believes there were 20 to 25 people who were following his live blog of the forum and

around six others retweeting and commenting on what was happening. It may not be the thousands some elections could boast, but Harms said it’s a good start. “Social media is still not a big aspect of municipal politics,â€? said Harms, explaining the lack of attention to the communication medium is quite pronounced locally. “You see Barrack Obama can attract millions around the world to his Twitter, and our candidates have a couple hundred, at best‌You know there are thousands of people using Facebook in Kelowna, so it makes you wonder how you can attract them.â€? Although candidates may not be getting all they hoped to out of their social media sites, Harms said they’ve done a good job building websites and using social media to lure voters to learn more about them. As for mayoralty candidates, Harms said he believes both Sharon Shepherd and Walter Gray have done well with their web endeavours. Both put forward great websites and Shepherd’s, in particular, has “cool features that appeal to web-friendly people,â€? said Harms. On the social media front, Harms figures they both deserve accolades, especially when you consider they’re using a medium that isn’t exactly aimed at their demographic. “Walter Gray is doing quite well considering the age range he has following him,â€? he said of the 71year-old candidate.

As for the rest of the candidates, the Capital News did its own impromptu survey two days running, to see who was paying attention in the Twitter-verse, and it turned out there are a handful of prolific Tweeters. Couns. Kevin Craig and Michele Rule have been on top of their social media accounts for years, dispersing brief notes about local politics and their lives in general. Rule answered two random Tweets, noting, “I’m often hanging out on Twitter & FB between meetings. (Social Media) is always important as communication/conversation tool #KelownaVotes.â€? Craig wrote, “I’m on Twitter, and have been actively using it to engage during my two years on Council. #kelownavotes.â€? Others who responded to the random query were council candidates Dayleen Van Ryswyk, Mark Thompson (who’s also running for school board) and Scott Ross. Larry Gray, who’s running for school board, also responded, noting that while he’s using the medium, the jury is out on its effectiveness. “It’s a great way for the candidates to talk to each other‌ not sure how effective Twitter has been,â€? he wrote. To follow the social media leg of this election, go to Twitter and use the hashtag #kelownavotes. Or go to Kelowna.ca, and find the candidates page to link up to their individual websites, Facebook and Twitter accounts. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

Feedback from A13 ance of a vibrant arts community to having a healthy city,� said Heather Martin, artistic and administrative director. While new and exciting ventures are always interesting for politicians to fund, Martin said her concern is that the city sticks with providing base-fund-

ing for established arts organizations like the Alternator. And there’s one other avenue where local politicians are critical to their success—advocating at the provincial level. “Are they willing to say they want the full restoration of gaming grant funding and are they willing to stand up and say

that our adult arts organization needs support?� she asked. “That’s what we need.� Martin said the city’s funding has always been a go-to, strong support base for the centre, which is well-known for supporting young and upand-coming artists, and the application to access those on-going funds is

extremely accessible. All things considered, if there’s a question that the arts community would like to see candidates answer, it’s will you stand behind the cultural plan and keep the arts at the forefront of change in this community? jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Sally Ann ringing in the season of giving Wade Paterson REPORTER

“Come on, ring those bells,” is the message being sent by the Salvation Army as it kicks off its 2011 Christmas Kettle campaign.

The famous kettles and bell ringers dispersed throughout the community on Thursday in hopes of raising money for various charitable projects spearheaded by the Salvation Army. According to Major

Ron Cartmell of the Salvation Army, the organization is always looking for additions to its jingle bell kettle team. “Ringing bells is actually a lot of fun,” said Cartmell. “Most of our volunteers say, ‘We do this

year after year because people stop and tell us stories about how the Salvation Army has helped them in years past.’” Last year the Christmas fundraiser brought in $650,000. Cartmell said a similar result is this year’s target. “Our goal for the kettles is $250,000 and then we do a mail appeal to some of our regular donors and the goal for that (initiative) is $400,000. So, in total, our target is $650,000,” said Cartmell. Commissioner Brian Peddle, responsible for the national work of the Salvation Army, said that 87 cents of every dollar goes towards the Salvation Army’s network of charitable programs. This exceeds the Canada Revenue Agency’s guideline of 65 per cent donation ef-

ficiency. Money raised goes to a variety of Salvation Army programs. But a healthy portion helps local families during the holidays. “We spend a lot of money at Christmas helping families and we put a fair amount of money into our emergency food bank, which helps families throughout the year,” said Cartmell. One of the major charitable acts done around Christmas is the Salvation Army Family Christmas Hampers program. “Families that are in need come and apply for a hamper. We ask them to fill out the appropriate information and gift suggestions. We take (the information) and try to fill those gift suggestions,” said Cartmell. “Then they come back on Dec. 21 and pick up

They could come from Santa Claus; they could come from mom and dad. “Nobody wants to go back to school in January and say, ‘The Salvation Army gave us Christmas.’ It’s just part of protecting people’s dignity.” Last Christmas the Salvation Army provided food and toy hampers for more than 1,000 children in the Central Okanagan.

Lesson in landscape renovation

T

he entry from the Hysslop family was named winner of the best small garden in the Okanagan Xeriscape Association’s 2011 Xeriscape Garden Contest Awards. Sandy and Greg Hysslop and their two children planned their landscape renovation together and did the work themselves in 2010. The following is excerpted from Greg’s description of how they followed the Seven Principles of Xeriscape to create their attractive, water wise front yard. “One: Planning and design. First we assessed our needs—parking, walkways, retaining wall, lighting, seating and seasonal beauty. “Second, we used pegs and ropes to make a grid and visualize the different ideas. “Third, plants and mechanical considerations were planned. “Two: Soil prepa-

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele ration. We removed the thirsty maple tree (its roots extended twice as far as the canopy cover), the old traditional lawn and about 20 yards of sand and rock. “Next, we rototilled down about 18 inches then tilled in compost, peat (sorry we now know it is non-renewable), sawdust, other organics and new soil. After that, we added between four to eight inches of topsoil. “Finally, we added approximately four inches of Ogogrow premium mulch. “Three: Practical turf areas. We put in a patch of grass for each child, just the right size to lie on in the summer or make snow angels on in the

winter. We used an “enviro-lawn” grass that requires less watering. “Four: Efficient irrigation. We set up two separate drip irrigation zones. Each zone has different types of emitters that can be adjusted to each plant’s needs. We have a large rain barrel that we use for supplemental watering. The overflow is used for low pressure drip irrigation. I have directed two of our downspouts to give some areas extra water. “Five: Appropriate plant selection. Before choosing, Sandy spent a great deal of time making many visits to nurseries in the area, a trip to the Summerland Ornamental Garden’s Xeriscape Gardens, and many walks around different neighbourhoods in different cities looking at water wise plant groupings. “Light requirements have been taken into account. “Six: Mulching. All the garden beds have four inches of Ogogrow pre-

mium mulch. No landscape fabric was used. “We used a rock mulch as ground cover around the perimeter of the house for fire protection and on the parking pad. “Seven: Garden maintenance. The children do the majority of the weeding. When they step out of line, they get to pull 40 weeds which usually only takes them five minutes. “Mowing, watering, pruning and pest control are all minimal. This project was a lot of work, but it has really paid for itself in time saved and enjoyment gained. All four of us are very proud of what

Short story contest returns The 14th annual Okanagan Short Story Contest is now accepting stories from writers in the Okanagan region. Award-winning author Karen Connelly (The Lizard Cage) will select the best three stories to be awarded cash prizes next spring. The contest invites all Southern Interior writers from east of Hope, west of the Alberta boundary, north of the U.S. border and south of Williams Lake to submit their original unpublished works of fiction. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 15, 2011. “When I first came to the Okanagan,” says writer Jake Kennedy, “the Okanagan Short Story Contest reading was the first literary event I attended…It was just plain exciting to recognize how much literary talent we had in the Okanagan.”

Safety Council, 395 Hartman Rd. All course dates run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a one hour supervised lunch break, and are open to children ages ten and up. These two-day courses offer 10 hours of actual training (excluding lunch breaks). The course being offered is the Canada Safety Council’s babysitter training course, widely recognized national program of its kind and is the only babysitter course that offers certification. Many important topics will be discussed, such as the rights and responsibilities of the employer, the child, and the babysitter, and the developmental and behavioural characteristics of children of different ages. Basic child care, nutrition, injury prevention, and basic first aid procedures will also be covered. Babysitters will also learn how to react to emergency situations, and they will learn about a variety of games, songs, and toys that are appropriate for different age groups. A special component of the course will prepare babysitters for handling the special needs of children who are visually impaired, hearing impaired, physically disabled, speech impaired, and mentally challenged. “Although the Canada Safety council recommends that children don’t start babysitting until they are 12, the reality is that many 10 to 12 year-olds help care for their younger siblings,” said Tania Meyer executive director. “This course will give kids the skills and information necessary to be much safer and aware babysitters and helpers. “Many parents also register their children in this course as an alternative to Home Alone classes, as the curriculum covered in this babysitting course is much more extensive than Home Alone curriculum and gives kids a greater sense of the responsibilities involved.” The registration fee is $60 and includes a KDSC Babysitter’s Gear Bag, a comprehensive student reference book, and a graduation card and certificate. All classes are expected to sell out, so contact the Kelowna and District Safety Council at 250765-3163 to register or for more information. Online registration will also be possible by mid-November. More information is available at www.kdsc. bc.ca.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ MUSIC SCENE

Best way to get more bands coming is to support local venues

‘‘

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Up for some live music this Friday and Saturday? You’re in luck. There are 25 live shows on in this little city in the space of just two nights, and that’s not all that out of the ordinary these days, according to blogger Jason Lane whose been writing about the music scene since March of 2006. “After Breakout West, I think a blueprint was laid out for how you can feasibly bring in a major event, 50 to 60 bands, and it was a success. All the venues had large crowds and I think the community did step up, did buy in,” he said. Lane started his blog, www.laner.ca, to fuel his own passion for music and help his friends figure out what is happening around town. He believes Kelowna’s music scene can and will continue to grow with the right support. Lane had filed 1,000 posts by last month, earning an interview on CBC’s newly expanded station. Last year he helped with promotions for the

MORE LOCAL BUSINESSES ARE OPENING UP THE OPTION OF LIVE MUSIC. THAT WASN’T THE CASE FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO. Jason Lane

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

JASON LANE’S BLOG, www.laner.ca, feeds music fans a steady stream of what’s happening in the live music scene. Western Canadian Music Awards and Breakout West. Following POP Okanagan this summer, he’s filed another 30• plus posts, feeding an average of 1,500 regular visitors to the site a regular dose of information on whose coming to town. “More local businesses are opening up the op-

tion of live music. That wasn’t the case five or six years ago,” he said. With a Cultural Plan now on the city’s books, and a new CBC afternoon show dedicated to culture in the community, it would appear the building blocks are in place to keep the momentum going. But he does see issues on the horizon.

“I think promotion is still tough. And there are more venues, but there could be more,” he said. And where venues like the Kelowna Community Theatre have really stepped up their lineup, Prospera Place still isn’t booking many big acts. “They can sell out at $80 or $90 a ticket. That’s not a problem. It’s some-

he environment didn’t make it very high on anyone’s list of election topics this time around, so if you’re as concerned as me, you’ll have to dig deep before you head to the ballot box tomorrow. While I hate to advise you to search for negatives instead of positives, you may find you have to weed out some of those 40 councillor candidates in Kelowna and 13 in West Kelowna, based on what they’re saying that you don’t like and that doesn’t sound like it would be good for the environment, instead of the other way around. That said, Kelowna’s controversial mayoralty contest seems pretty cut and dried to me, and I imagine it does to you as well. So, on to the councillor competitors. Naturally, it’s much easier to make a decision on the incumbents because they have a track record of both actions and oratory over the past few years which has most likely drawn us to them or made us want to slap them. I’m pretty happy with more than half the existing councillors on both councils, so it’s only a matter of replacing a few old bums in those cushioned council seats

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves with some bright new faces. Trouble is, many of them are untried and new, so we have to form our opinions based on how they showed up (or not) at all-candidates’ forums, or responded to questions posed in the paper, on radio or on websites. The upside is that almost all the candidates have websites. The downside is that many of them are a collection of motherhood platitudes that are meaningless when applied to a specific issue or situation. Leadership? Hello? Teamwork? Goes without saying! Reduce unnecessary spending? Hello? Who decides what’s unnecessary? Encourage economic development? Of course, but consider the times we’re in! More and better jobs? Of course. Who is against that? So, read through the websites, ask the candidates questions and look

Grants fill Kelowna’s coffers The B.C. Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government has provided a grant of $352,917.33 to the City of Kelowna in compensation for municipal property taxes. Across B.C., 64 communities will share $16.9 million in grants-in-lieu of property taxes. These grants are distributed as a way to reimburse municipalities for services benefitting government properties, such as sewers, roads and fire protection. The amounts paid are based on the assessed value of the properties and the municipality’s tax rate. “These grants are a great way for local governments to reinvest funds back into the community to provide services Kelowna residents count on,� said Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson. “Even for a city like Kelowna, which collects some $96.6 million in tax-

ation revenue, a grant of more $350,000 will make a significant difference,�

for specifics: • like a commitment to protect the waterfront from commercial development and preserve any remaining natural waterfront areas in their natural form; • a commitment to maintain and expand parkland because it’s something we’ll never have a chance to regain once it’s gone, and it can forever pick us out from the crowd as a community that’s desirable to live and do business in; • like a determination to protect the quality of our water by taking innovative steps to treat runoff and deal with contaminants; • like thinking outside the box to conserve water by re-conditioning developers, landscapers and residents to move away from water-hungry landscapes in this dry climate; • like an interest in en-

suring new developments are of a high quality we will be proud of in the future, and that adopt innovative methods of leaving a smaller environmental footprint, so that there will be a future. Admittedly, it’s going to be a tough job to vote this year, with many new names on the ballot, but what these elected politicians make decisions on every day they’re in office, are the things that most affect our daily lives. It’s important that at least some of the voices elected to sit around that table say what you’d like to say or you won’t be represented. You have to vote to hear your views being expressed when decisions are made. Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Grandpa Henderson soon began plying his profession as a dental mechanic and opened his office and lab in his home on Sutherland Avenue, across the alley from the Harvey House. The family consisted of Leigh and Helen Henderson and their children Evelyn (my mom) Harold and Kathleen. Leigh, the oldest son, stayed in Calgary working in sales for a dental equipment company. I’m not sure when exactly but I believe it was during the Second World War years that Grandpa Henderson purchased a small lakeshore lot beside what is now Gyro Park in the Mission, where he built a cabin. This cabin became the centre of summer activity for our families for many years, bringing us together as nothing else could in those wonderful days of my youth. There was a clinker-built rowboat that was stashed in a little lean-to on the north side of the cabin. It could be used for fishing but mostly it was used just for fun. I remember it took at least two adults to pull it down to the lake it was so heavy. Our local families— the Harold Hendersons, the Don (Kathleen) McLeods and the Ernie

NEWS ▼ GLOBAL COMPARISON

Tuition fees in Canada still remain fairly reasonable T uition is the dollar amount you pay to have the privilege of attending university or college. In Canada, when you attend a public post-secondary institution your tuition covers just about a quarter of the cost. The rest of the bill is paid by the government, hence the taxpayer. In this past week there have been two large-scale student demonstrations against increases in tuition. The first was in Montreal where students were upset over the provincial government’s six-year Quebec University Fund-

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens ing Plan. With this plan institutions are now allowed to raise their tuition by $325 per year for the next four years. By 2017, it is expected that tuition should be about $3,800 per year, which is still 30 per cent lower than the national average. More than 15,000 stu-

dents took to the streets in a peaceful demonstration. Many purposely skipped class to voice their concerns over the increases. On the other side of the pond, British students were again protesting against increases in tuition and the privatization of higher education. Their tuition is expected to increase to just under $15,000 per year, which is approximately $11,000 more than students in Quebec. According to reports, 10,000 students attended the demonstration (the police said there were only 2,500) and there were

4,000 police on hand who made 153 arrests. There was only one arrest at the Montreal demonstration. The contrast between the two is interesting in that the British youth are dealing with significantly higher costs associated with a much higher level of economic uncertainty. In Britain, the unemployment rate for young adults sits at about 24 per cent and the cost of living is significantly higher. Even if these youth are able to secure that university or college education, their job prospects are not that great. In comparison, Ca-

nadian youth are facing a 14 per cent unemployment rate, which is less for those with a college or university education. Today, Canada isn’t facing the same economic uncertainty as Britain, but if the Euro crisis continues and the Americans are unable to pull out of their current state it is just a matter of time before the effects are felt by all Canadians. Tuition fees in Canada are fairly reasonable if you compare us to most western countries. On the whole our universities and colleges receive significant funding from the government,

even though many would argue it isn’t enough. Yes, we don’t always get the money to offer every program we want or to build new buildings every year, but our funding is consistent and we are always able to provide regular ongoing education to most of the communities we serve. We are what I would consider very accountable to the public and the government. For every student who protested in Montreal, I would say take a hard look at students around the world and realize how fortunate you are to pay the tuition you do.

I would also ask them to look at the educational opportunities they have in their own backyard. McGill University was ranked number 17 in the world university ranking—the highest of all Canadian institutions. No students attending universities in the category above this university or many below are paying $3,800 in tuition per year; I can guarantee you their fees are significantly higher.

NEWS ▼ UNDERSTANDING PAIN

▼ MLA’S REPORT

Don’t believe everything you feel Website open season for open government T ypically we think that pain is a warning signal that we need to pay attention to. When we feel pain, we stop and take notice and try to ascertain why we are feeling pain and do what we can to alleviate it. Pain can be a brilliant built-in protective and survival mechanism, that for the most part serves us well in preventing further damage or injury. However, why is it that in some cases, even after an injury has healed the pain still remains? Or why is it that there are people who suffer from chronic pain with no known cause of origin? In these cases it is often the disorganized circuits in the brain that are associated with trauma that are at the very root of pain itself. The resulting crosswired neural circuits are sending the body pain signals that are actually false messages. This is indeed what happens for many people. For example, take phantom limb pain. In the book The Brain That Changes Itself, Dr. Norman Doidge had interviewed Dr. Vilayanur Ramachandran, known as

EMOTIONAL RESCUE

Annie Hopper the “wizard of neuroplasticity.” Dr. Ramachadran is an expert in phantom limb pain and has found some very interesting and unbelievable ways to alleviate pain. With phantom limb pain the patient often still feels the amputated limb and pain in the missing limb. But how can you feel pain in a “ghost” limb? Well, as it turns out, during trauma the neural circuits in the brain be-

come disorganized which can result in the sensation of pain. In this case the root of pain is actually in brain function, not in the tissue itself. Dr. Ramachandran was working with a man who was in a horrible motorcycle accident and eventually had to have his left arm amputated. However, even though his arm was no longer physically there, he still had chronic pain in his “phantom limb” and it felt as if his left arm was frozen, resting on his chest as if it was still in a cast. Dr. Ramachandran wondered if he could use the allusion of visual input to combat the allusion of pain. Part of this experiment involved the patient putting his good arm in a mirror box, giving the allusion that he had a left arm. As the patient looked in the box at the mirror image of his right arm and started to move his right hand, his brain started to recognize this image as real, in fact his brain registered the image as his missing left arm. The results of the mirror box experiment were even shocking to Dr. Ramachandran. He wondered if the mirror box would not

only convince the brain that the phantom limb could move again, but wondered if this would alleviate chronic pain as well. Indeed this is what happened. As we learn more about the brain and its role in our overall health and well being, we are also beginning to understand that the brain truly is the control centre for optimal health. In fact, finding ways to change brain function is at the heart of a revolution in health care. Self-directing neuroplastic changes in the brain can alter the projectory of your life and move you from merely surviving to thriving. Teaching people how to change brain function is also at the heart of what I do through the Dynamic Neural Retraining System. I am in the blessed position to regularly witness what others would claim as “medical miracles.” As we learn to understand and harness the power of the brain, we also begin to question the whole notion of pain itself.

Telling your story most accurately —the Capital News

S

ometimes, the most effective and beneficial changes governments can make are actually quite simple. Our commitment to opening up government fits into that category. Now, when you think about open government, hunting and fishing regulations may not be the first thing that comes to mind —unless, of course, you hunt or fish, or if you happen to be the minister responsible. Earlier this month, Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister (and Kelowna-Mission MLA) Steve Thomson announced a new, permanent public engagement website for hunting and angling regulations. In addition, new angling, hunting and trapping stakeholder and advisory teams have been created, to guide development of regulations. Opening up government won’t always make splashy headlines; understandably, not everyone is holding their breath to examine meeting transcripts and the rationale for altering regulations. But if you’re reading this and thinking “that’s nice, but so what,” this is a matter of great interest for the thousands of British Columbians who hunt

Ben Stewart or fish, and whose livelihoods depend on it. Make no mistake —hunting and fishing are a very important part of British Columbia’s economy. For example, freshwater anglers attracted to B.C.’s world-famous lakes and rivers spend $480 million on equipment, travel and accommodation every year. That supports some 7,500 direct jobs. Sustainable hunting contributes another $350 million per year, and the guiding industry provides about 2,000 jobs, mostly in rural communities. That’s why organizations like the Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia, B.C. Wildlife Federation, and B.C. Trappers Association are excited about this new website. It allows them and their members to have a more direct say in regulations and restrictions. Angling, hunting and trapping regulations are already reviewed every two years. But as with any gov-

ernment program, if citizens see or think of some way to improve it—from big-picture stuff down to minute details—it will change much faster if there’s some mechanism to tell their government about it. The new website is up and running. Even if you don’t harbour an interest in hunting or fishing regulations, it’s well worth a quick look for the process alone. It’s quite interesting to see proposed changes to regulations listed, and the reasons for proposed changes. If you feel strongly about a proposed change, please don’t be shy with questions, or even if you strongly disagree—the whole point is to see what British Columbians think. As Premier Christy Clark said: “Open government is about giving British Columbians the chance to participate in improving the policies and services that impact their lives. After all, it’s your government, your tax dollars and your information.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. Visit the B.C.

International student hopes to call Canada her home Almost 600 international students study at UBC Okanagan. Karen Robles would jump at the chance to work here, but if she has to move elsewhere, she will—as long as she can stay in Canada. The Mexican native graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus mechanical engineering program in June. Having completed the four-year program she immediately signed up for another two years to get her master’s degree. “I like B.C. so it would be nice to stay here,” says Robles of her future plans. She would like to see more of Canada and is willing to move, but she is also willing to stay if the right opportunity presents itself. The daughter of a surgeon in the Mexican city of Torreon, she knows of many classmates who are already working in their chosen field. “Most of my friends already have a job. A lot of them are from here and most of them found jobs in B.C.,” she says, adding she would recommend coming to UBC Okanagan to her friends and family back home. “If they could deal with the cold, I would recommend it,” she says with a laugh. “I think the professors here are amazing.” Woody Cross, foreign skilled work-

ers co-ordinator with the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, said there is still a demand for foreign workers in the region. However, like most sectors, the demand has decreased from its peak before the 2008 global economic crash. “It’s not the urgency it once was,” says Cross. “The tech sector still needs people for sure, but we’re not seeing the recruitment we saw three or four years ago, at least, not in this area.” But that is not to say skilled workers need look elsewhere. Cross said there is still a need for engineers, nurses, IT specialists and other highly skilled positions. Cross said he takes advantage of having highly skilled graduates right in his own backyard, adding he makes sure local employers know about graduates from UBC’s Okanagan campus. Once they graduate, international students can get a three-year post-graduate work permit, and Cross said his office has programs in place to help graduate students gain permanent residency. Teresa Flanagan, manager of international programs and services, said there are 591 international students representing 79 countries on campus this year, an increase of almost 100 students over last year. In 2006, there were 127 international students.

SPORTS ▼ WOMEN’S SOCCER TITLE

Second CIS gold for McFetridge

‘‘

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

When Chantal McFetridge committed to Queens University in 2009, she had a hunch there would be some good times ahead. Little did the Kelowna soccer product know at the time, her future at the Kingston, Ont. school would include not one, but two national championships. Last weekend in Montreal, McFetridge and the Golden Gaels successfully defended the Canadian Interuniversity Sport women’s soccer title with a victory in penalty kicks over the University of Montreal. “I guess if you told me back then I would have won two national titles here, I would have been super surprised,” said McFetridge, 20. “I’m so grateful for my experience at Queens. When I first came here on a re-

cruiting trip, I knew this is where I wanted to be. I met the coach and was 100 per cent sure. It’s amazing how it’s worked out, I have no regrets.” An attacking midfielder, McFetridge was a key figure for the Golden Gaels in their run to the 2011 national finale. In the semifinal match on Saturday against the University of Ottawa, the Okanagan Mission Secondary grad found herself in the spotlight with the game on the line. After a scoreless regulation and overtime, the

Gaels and Ottawa went to penalty kicks. With the score tied 2-2 in the shootout, McFetridge drove home the winning goal. “The girl before me had scored, so if I could score then it would be over,” said McFetridge. “I knew there was a ton of pressure, but I had been in those situations before. I was surprisingly calm, I picked my spot and put it in, and we were off to the final. It’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever had in soccer.” In addition to scoring some clutch goals, Queens head coach Dave McDowell said McFertridge has continued to grow into a well-rounded player in her three years with the Golden Gaels, her best season yet coming in 2011. “She was fantastic for us,” said McDowell. “She has improved in many areas over last year, her ability to both keep

and distribute the ball is very good…she was such a huge part of our success. Chantal made it hard for us to take her off the field.” Still, McFetridge is modest about her own accomplishments, instead choosing to heap praise on her teammates and the Queens soccer program in general. “I’m just so proud of my teammates and everyone who worked so hard to make it happen,” she said. “It’s really a combination of things that makes this team successful. There’s been some really good recruiting and a lot of us have come up together, building and getting better each year. I guess you could say we’ve found the winning formula.” Off the pitch, McFetridge is also enjoying her education at Queens as she continues to works towards her bachelor of science (honours) in kinesiology.

The UBC Okanagan Heat’s second weekend of Canada West basketball action will take the men’s and women’s teams into Abbotsford. On Friday and Saturday nights, the Heat will battle the University of Fraser Valley Cascades. Both UBCO squads started their inaugural CIS campaigns at 0-2 after losses last weekend in Lethbridge and Calgary. Heat assistant Marc Semeniuk said the first part of the 2011-12 campaign will be a learning experience for the UBCO women. “I think it’s been a process for us to understand the level of play we need to meet this year,” Semeniuk said. “The girls haven’t played in these environments yet. We go into these big, nice, new gyms and they’re like ‘whoa’. It’s a little bit nerve racking, but they responded pretty well.” r Over on the men’s side, Heat veteran Simon Pelland said his teammates have had their eyes opened to the quality of basketball they’ll need to play on a nightly basis to be competitive in Canada West. “We realized it was going to be a whole new ball game,” said Pelland, the 6-foot-7, fifth-year post. “They’re a lot faster, they’re a lot stronger, and every gym we walk into we’re going to have to earn it.

UBC’s Okanagan campus fielded its first real cross country running team since becoming the Heat and this year sent 10 athletes to the CCAA Championships hosted by Thomson Rivers University on Nov. 12. Both the men’s and women’s teams finished 13th out of 14 teams represented at the championships across the four CCAA conferences. The PACWEST conference finished last compared to the other three, with an average time of 29:38 (2:28:11 total) for the men and an average of 21:51 (1:49:17) for the women. The men’s race was 8 km while the women’s was 6 km. Still, for the Heat’s inaugural run—figuratively and literally—they had a good showing and solid team effort. “They did well as a team and actually placed quite well together,” said coach Nathan Reiter after both races had finished. David Harbocian led the men’s team with a 29:29 finish of the 8 km race, placing 55th overall. Aurelien Schilles was close behind alongside fellow teammate Alex Hansen, who both finished 29:52 and 30:01, respectively for 62nd and 63rd. Within the same pack of

They ran really tough in the second half of the race.” Ashley Yip was first across the finish line for the women’s team, finishing 33rd overall with a time of 20:51. Shayla Milan followed shortly after at 21:37 to place at 49th.

Samantha Hayter came in at 22:04, good for 61st and Britney Hearn wrapped things up for the Heat at 67th to record 22:13. The course was at MacArthur Park in Kamloops, and consisted of a loop on the field behind the MacArthur Island Sports Centre. The loop was two km long, and so the women completed three laps for their 6 km and the men four for their 8 km. The course was nearly entirely flat with only a few dips and small hills. Comparing the race to a tougher terrain experience at the PACWEST championships, Ashley Yip commented that “provincials was a shorter race and had a lot more hills, so we could actually have a game plan for the race. This one we pretty much just had to hammer hard.” The story of the Heat’s cross country for this season was a quick one, taking place over only approximately seven or eight weeks in total. “Based on the limited training, the athletes performed well,” said coach Reiter. “However, we are optimistic about our athletes’ progress with another year of training.”

AquaJets results from meets over the past couple of weeks It’s been a record-breaking two-week stretch for the Kelowna AquaJets Swim Club. Two weeks ago the local team hosted a one-day distance meet, then last weekend the Jets swam in three different meets in Vernon and Coquitlam. Head Coach Peter Wilkins is thrilled to see so many swimmers attending the competitions. “It was an awesome feeling this weekend

knowing that more than half of our total team, 82 swimmers, are away from home and competing,” said Wilkins. At the distance meet on Nov. 4, there were 18 swimmers competing in their first longer race (400, 800 or 1500 meter distances), but the highlights were shown on the record board with three new club records in the 1500 free. Axana Merckx swam 24 minutes and 59 se-

conds to break the girls 10 and under record, while Clarisse Obedkoff shaved over a minute off the old record swimming in the 11-12 girls in 19 minutes and 36 seconds. Teammate Josh Zakala also broke the existing KAJ record by over one minute in the boys 1314 category in 17 minutes and 40 seconds. In Coquitlam, Zakala broke a record in the 400 free by 15 seconds, swim-

ming 4 minutes 30 seconds. On the podium KAJ saw Tia Itterman and Julien Roberts both nabbing silver medals in the distance swims. Obedkoff showed some grit in the pool, swimming her way to three medals, two silver (100 free and 100 back) and one bronze (50 free). Zakala also added to the haul with a surprise bronze in the 200br, dropping eight seconds from his best time. Other finalists from the team were T’Keya Delwo, Theo Mohamed and Katie Dunlop.

Swimmers with 100 per cent best times were Joelle da Silva, Haley Martin and Sophie Schroeder. At the same time up the valley in Vernon, the AquaJets had 18 swimmers competing. The meet was highlighted with two new qualifiers for AA Provincials in Chilliwack in February. Axana Merckx qualified in the 200m back and teammate Jaya Melnyk in the 200m breast. The team also saw a lot of younger swimmers up on the podium. Amber Crack won a silver in the

100 fr, and Sam McDonald a bronze in the 50 breast. Molly Hill and Axana Merckx cleaned up the medals in the10 and under girls category with 8 (800 fr, 50 bk, 100 fly, 200 bk, 50 fr, 50 fl, 200 br an 100 fr) and 5 medals (50 bk, 800 fr, 200 bk, 50 fl, 200 bk). Younger brother to Sam, Max McDonald had a strong showing winning six medals for the team in 50 bk, 50 br, 200 bk, 100 br, 50 fl and 100 fr. Other finalists for the team were Nicolas Griffen, Hallie Jenkins, Jaya Melnyk and Michael Patora. Swimmers with

at the helm of Telemark’s cross-country ski racing program. Adam has been chosen as one of only 11 Nordic ski coaches in Canada to receive funding through Cross Country Canada and the National Winter Sport Association. By receiving the funding, Adam has been recognized for helping three Telemark racing team athletes qualify to train at National Training Centres as well as his coaching work within B.C. Emily Ertel and Jeff Kerkovius both qualified

and accepted invitations to train at National Training Centres based on their race results last season. David Palmer declined his selection to pursue further education, but will continue to race and train at a high level with the Blackjack ski club in Rossland. Elliot oversees the training of both the racing and junior development programs. The racing program is geared towards older athletes aged 13-18 and is only open by invitation.

Nevada takes Trans-Canada Champion wrestling title Professional Wrestling had its own take on paying respect to the Canadian Military on Rermembrance Day, as the Kelowna-based Big West Wrestling put on a card at the Rutland Centennial Hall on November 11. Dubbed It’s All About Respect, the show offered free tickets to all active and retired service personnel. The raucous crowd was treated to a night of k intense wrestling action, with a lot of thrills and surprises along the way. t Amidst the controversy sparked by the political issues surrounding the NWA Canadian title, the crowd witness Kelowna’s Kyle Sebastian stripped of the All Star Wrestling Trans-Canada, due to a knee injury that has kept him out of action for over two months. The main event saw Vance (Mr. Beefy Goodness) Nevada battle the popular Adam Ryder for t▼

the vacant strap, and the 14-year veteran Nevada was able to persevere to become a three-time Trans-Canada Champion in what was definitely a thrilling contest. Other action saw Bishop and The Mauler battle to a double-countout; the two massive men con-

tinued fighting after the match was thrown out, and were later fined an undisclosed amount by the Rutland Park Society, as their brawling destroyed one of the doorframes in the building. K.C. Andrews had his wrestling ban lifted, but also had his undefeated

and Sugar after the match, but Collin Cutler came out of the crowd to make the save, and demanded a match with KC Andrews on Dec. 3. The match will see Andrews’ questionable “Ontario Wrestling Championship” on the line. In other matches, Nicole Matthews defeat-

CHARTER SAILBOATS and superyachts crowd the marina at the new CostaBaja Resort and Spa, which claims to be La Paz, Mexico’s first five-star resort.

Party down in safe, happy La Paz on the Baja Brian J. Cantwell CONTRIBUTED

LA PAZ, Mexico— As traffic stalled along the palm-lined street, we peered from our taxi and spied the cause. A little parade came our way: boys in crimson church robes, young women balancing flower baskets on their heads, and a flatbed truck carrying a raucous band. Crackling fireworks zipped every which way.

A local festival? We asked the cabdriver. He shrugged. No idea. Maybe a wedding? Perhaps a girl’s 15th birthday—they call it Fiesta de Quinceanera. Who knew? It was just one of many little street celebrations my daughter and I observed in a spring visit here. That’s La Paz, said 30-year-old Chabelo Castillo, a local dive guide. “Any excuse, any excuse, for a party! ‘Whose

birthday is it today?’ Hey, PAR-teee!” La Paz, a city of 220,000, about a twohour drive north of Cabo San Lucas, isn’t a major tourist center (though it has hopes, having recently launched its first-ever U.S. ad campaign). The state capital of Baja California Sur—the southern half of this desert peninsula—it has few big hotels, with no American names such as Marriott

or Hilton. Unlike Cabo, most partying in the street is done by locals, not by drunken gringos on college break. For visitors looking for authentic Mexico, that’s a big part of the charm. While the Spanish explorer Cortez landed here in 1535, author John Steinbeck hung out in the 1940s, and Jacques Cousteau called local waters “the world’s aquarium” in the 1960s, these days

La Paz is mostly a normal, mid-size Mexican city, unsullied by drug violence and untrammeled by tourists. Costs are much lower than touristy Cabo, prompting CNN Money to call La Paz one of the best places for Americans to retire. A holiday here is kind of the Mexican equivalent of vacationing in Spokane, Wash.— which also made that retirement list.

What La Paz has that Spokane doesn’t: worldclass diving, saltwater fishing and kayaking, found nearby on the Sea of Cortez. Just a few miles north of the Tropic of Cancer, La Paz has a pleasant winter climate, enjoyed by many as they stroll the city’s sea-wall promenade, or malecon. “I love just walking or biking the malecon,” we heard from George Hast-

TRAVEL La Paz from A36 maids and other marine subjects. Old couples walked past arm in arm. Groups of self-conscious teens shuffled like herd animals. Twenty-somethings zoomed by on skates and bicycles while young marrieds pushed strollers. On the adjacent street, a stream of cars poked along, including a limo with a bride and groom standing to wave through the sunroof. Down the line, a pinkstreamered sedan full of giggling young women in fancy dresses blared its horn nonstop. Another Quinceanera? A bachelorette party? Who knew? We were the only turistas in sight, and it all felt happy. In 1995, my family had come to La Paz from the Northwest on our sailboat. I noticed a few changes 16 years later: • City boosters have extended the malecon miles beyond downtown, connecting with a beach park and making for a great bay-front cycling path. (Bike rentals are available downtown.) • New condos and a golf course have sprouted on El Mogote, a formerly empty peninsula in the bay, and the fancy CostaBaja resort has sprung up on the bay’s outer rim with a marina full of superyachts. • America has made incursions: Applebee’s and Burger King along the malecon, a downtown Sears, plus Office Depot and Walmart on the city’s edge. But much is unchanged, and the local character remains strong. I could still find my way around downtown’s narrow back streets, to the Mercado Madero, a public market where fresh shrimp mounded high at a seafood stand and steaks dripped at a butcher’s counter, just down the aisle from a shop with fneon-hued party dresses (apparently in high demand in La Paz). Across the way, we stopped at our old favorite bakery, Panificadora Lilia, for pina empanadas— pineapple turnovers—for

4 pesos—about 35 cents apiece. On Via Revolucion, a family-run stand on the sidewalk still sold tasty fish tacos for the equivalent of 45 cents. And if you need shoes, La Paz seems to have enough shoe stores to take care of every foot in Mexico. We happened on big doings at the downtown primary school. Blockades stopped traffic, kids in school uniforms ran up and down sidewalks, and the local police band stood in formation, ready to play. It was in observance of Benito Juarez’s birthday, a national holiday for the 19th-century Mexican leader famous for separating church from state. And another chance to celebrate! That evening, in that slow taxi, we ventured with our sailing friends to a free concert. A Mexican soprano, Loyda Vazquez, was singing traditional songs at the La Paz cultural center, a restored governor’s mansion with stone towers and massive, carved wooden doors. Free concerts are a regular thing, our friends told us—another part of the La Paz party scene. Locals brought their children. The singer, in a long, flowing dress, trilled in an open courtyard beneath the stars, as a church bell rang in the distance. It was a lovely performance, diminished only slightly by the beat of music from passing cars and nearby bars,

heard through the building’s open doors. La Paz—the name means “the peace”—doesn’t do “quiet” very well. OK, yes, it’s a party town. But with a big touch of class.

IF YOU GO:

Getting There: Horizon Airlines (part of Alaska Airlines) has direct flights on midsize turboprop planes into La Paz from Los Angeles. See alaskaair.com. Combine La Paz with visits to Cabo San Lucas and Todos Santos using inexpensive connections by modern buses oper-

ated by Aguila bus lines and you can take advantage of cheaper airfares into Los Cabos, the big airport serving Cabo tourist centers. The La Paz bus station is off the malecon (Paseo Alvaro Obregon) at the corner of Cinco de Mayo. Buses depart hourly every day. Or combine a La Paz visit with Mazatlan, on mainland Mexico. A passenger ferry connects the two cities; about $75 U.S. one way. www.bajaferries.com. Lodging: Rates start at $75 U.S. at La Casa Mexicana, a restored 1940s Spanish art-deco vil-

la with five guest rooms, some with shared bath. Our room with a large balcony overlooking the bay, a short block away, was $85 U.S. (including tax and breakfast at a nearby restaurant). www. casamex.com. A popular option for kayakers and budget travelers is La Posada Luna Sol, www.posadalunasol. com, on a back street three blocks from the malecon. Rooms with private bath start at $65 U.S., with communal kitchen. It is connected with an outfitter, Sea & Adventures, so arranging saltwater outings is easy; see www. kayakbaja.com. Centrally located on the malecon is the fullservice, 110-room Hotel Perla, which claims to have been the first hotel in La Paz (circa 1940). Rates start around $75 U.S.; www.hotelperlabaja.com. You’ll miss easy access to strolling the waterfront, but if you want 5-star amenities a short drive from La Paz, there’s CostaBaja Resort & Spa, www.costabajaresort.com, with rates in the range of $200 U.S. a night. Restaurants: La Costa is a favorite of locals as well as visiting boaters, at the end of Calle 5 de Febrero, near Marina La Paz. A memorable dinner for two of deep-fried snapper (the whole fish!) and the local chocolate clams was $16 U.S. Special Event: La Paz Carnaval is the city’s biggest annual festival. Legends, Myths and Famous Characters is the 2012 theme, with parades, costumes, and local and national performers. Feb. 16-21. Traveler’s Tip: Mexico’s nationwide war on drug cartels is evident in southern Baja, even though drug violence is virtually unknown there. Last spring, “Policia Preventiva” squads, armed like soldiers, cruised the La Paz waterfront in open trucks, and police randomly flagged down vehicles for inspection even along the peaceful malecon.

Music comes alive at Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus Thursday, Nov. 24, when the Audio Engineering and Music Production program puts on its 10th annual concert—The Man Bear Pig Awareness Concert. The show features two Kelowna alternative bands —Smash Blvd and The Flu. Twenty students from the college’s program handle the work behind the scenes of the concert. “This is our big live event and what we’re doing here is creating a professional concert environment, just on a smaller scale,� said Bob Gabelhouse, professional audio engineer, music producer and the program’s instructor. “It takes three days of hard work on the part of the students to put on this show. They have to set up and calibrate the equipment, do the sound checks with the bands, and then on the last day, the students run the sound and lighting equipment during the show.� Former student Cory Bell-Esau said his experience as a student working on a live show prepared him well for the work he does now as owner of Mr. E Audio Production. “It’s vital,� he said. “Quality live sound requires more skill than studio sound. When you’re live, you don’t have time to do things again—you simply have to do, and if you don’t do, you’re fired. This is real stuff they’re doing here.� This marks the first time the event is taking place on campus. Previous locations included the Community Theatre, Mary Irwin Theatre and Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Tickets for the concert are $10, and available at the door or online at www.okanagan.bc.ca/csreg—search for CRN 71091. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert gets underway at 7 p.m. Audio engineering and music production is the largest program offered through continuing studies at Okanagan College. It runs full-time Monday to Thursday from September to May. At the end of the year, students complete their final project at a professional studio where they bring in their own band and produce a professionally recorded CD.

Nissan updates its ‘four-door sports car’ Neil Moore CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

As Nissan’s flagship sedan, the Maxima has had its share of challenges. And not all of them from the competition. Take Infiniti’s more posh and potent G37x AWD sedan for example. It starts about $3,000 more than a Maxima with Sport or Premium package, and presents a tempting upsell with its luxo styling, all-wheel-drive stability (versus FWD), 328 hp engine—and, of course, the added brand cachet. Alternatively, the Maxi’s Altima sibling of-

fers a lower-priced alternative. It can be optioned up to comparable levels, with only a small sacrifice in power (20 hp and 3 lb/ft of torque). And if you don’t need four doors, the Coupe version is a real head-turner. Both are doing bigger numbers, with 3,107 G-cars and 10,846 Altimas sold year-to-date as of October 31. This compares with only 1,802 for the Maxima. Outside competition is also fierce. Hyundai’s V6 Genesis Sedan, which received a power boost for 2012, provides See Nissan B7

Combined with the wide stance and optional 19-inch wheels, it gives the Maxima a firmly planted look.

MOTORING â–ź ROAD TEST

Hyundai Veloster raises the bar in style and content Neil Moore CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

When I hear people say they don’t build ’em like the used to, I agree and say ‘thank God for that.’ Because when it comes to automobiles, the ‘good old days’ are now. New vehicles have never been safer, more fuel efficient, more powerful, tighter handling—and a better value. Today, you do get more for your money, and according to Michael Hatch, chief economist for the Canadian Auto Dealers Association, average new car prices are roughly the same as they were in 1994. Which in today’s dollars, he points out, translates into a 40 per cent increase in affordability. The Korean manufacturers offer no exception to this rule, and in fact, seem to be leading the charge in providing more for less. Take the Hyundai Elantra for example. Its Limited model not only comes with heated leather front seats, but heated rear seats as well. And at less than $23K, that’s not even the top trim level. Keeping this in mind when I attended the Veloster launch in September, I had high expectations for Hyundai’s new compact, three-door sporty coupe. But I also wondered if it could live up to the hype, considering its price point and position in the company lineup. Some questions came to mind: 1) If they invested heavily in the exterior, as they appear to have done, will the interior be awash in cheap-looking hard plastics? 2) Will the base trim level suck, forcing you to pony up more cash for air conditioning, power windows/locks and alloy wheels? 3) Just how much content can you cram into a car that begins at $18,999 and tops out at $23,899? 4) If fuel economy is

a key objective, will performance be a disappointment? A couple of hours behind the wheel settled most of the score, but a recent week in the driver’s seat provided more insight. Let’s tackle the last point before we begin. Yes, the Veloster looks like a hot hatch, and no, it won’t burn up the asphalt. Which doesn’t concern Hyundai leadership, as their market research indicates that this car’s twentysomething target demographic doesn’t care so much about performance. Expressiveness, the latest technology and the ability to customize rank higher in the ’must haves.’ Still, the all-new 1.6 litre Gamma four-cylinder, the smallest Hyundai engine to use gasoline direct injection, is no slouch. It provides 138 hp and 123 lb/ft of torque, which are pretty big numbers for a car similar in size to

THE NEW 2012 VELOSTER’S unique three-door configuration—two doors on the passenger side, one on the driver’s side—is a blend of coupe and hatchback. It comes surprisingly well equipped for a base price of $18,999. the Accent subcompact hatchback. First gear, however, is a little tall with the sixspeed manual, so takeoff isn’t brisk. And torque drops off quickly when upshifting. But second to sixth are more satisfying, and keeping the revs up will deliver enough pep for most buyers. The optional dualclutch transmission (add $1,400), shifts prompt-

ly, but is not quite on par with some I’ve tested— for example the snappy six-speed DSG available in the 2012 Jetta GLI. Which is not unexpected from an ’EcoShift’ DCT. Gearing is more consistent with fuel efficiency, and with one clutch operating gears one, three and five while the other handling two, four, six and reverse, shifts are made without the ef-

ficiency loss of a torque converter. This results in a five to six per cent gain in fuel economy. Inside, the Veloster does not disappoint. Hyundai engineers have carved out a surprising amount of space, considering the car’s small footprint. It has classleading interior volume (compared to competitors like Scion tC, Honda CR-

Z, MINI Clubman and Cooper), and it has been fitted as nicely as its reinvented Elantra and Sonata siblings. Sure, there’s liberal use of plastic, but it’s a nice mix of complementary textures, with faux aluminum and chrome accents, and soft-touch materials. My tester, which was in Tech Package trim ($22,499), also included

double-stitched leatherette seats with attractive fabric inserts, along with leatherette in the doors and armrests. What’s most surprising about the Veloster is its long list of standard content. The base vehicle at $18,999 includes a sixspeed manual, along with now standard fare like power windows, locks, SeeVeloster B5

Veloster features impress at this price point Veloster from B3 air conditioning, steeringwheel audio and cruise controls, Bluetooth handsfree phone and heated power mirrors. What’s more impressive at this price point are features like 17-inch alloy wheels, dual centre exhaust outlet, heated seats, smart key with pushbutton start, seven-inch touchscreen multimedia system with six-speaker AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio, and rearview camera. The latter item, in particular, is a bonus as the Veloster’s large C-pillars and split back window do hamper rear visibility. The Tech Package (as tested) bumps the price by $3,500 ($22,499 with sixspeed manual; $23,899 with DCT), and adds an upgraded eight-speaker audio system with subwoofer, navigation system, faux leather seating and door inserts, leatherwrapped steering wheel and shift knob, panoramic sunroof, automatic headlights and 18-inch alloys with painted inserts. Loaded up as it was, my tester gave the impression—both inside and out—of a much more expensive vehicle. Aside from content levels, what’s also unexpected is its three-door configuration. There’s a single door on the driver’s side, just like any coupe. Walk over to the pas-

MOTORING â–ź HYUNDAI

Access to rear accommodated by two doors on passenger side Veloster from B5 senger side, and you’ll see a cleverly-disguised rear door with its handle hidden in the black window surround. This was a pleasant surprise for my elderly father, who was beginning to wonder how on earth he was going to climb in back. It is here this car exhibits some level of practicality. For the family guy (or gal) not ready to give up the sporty look of a coupe, the Veloster’s third door opens to reasonably roomy quarters. Sure, you’ll have to duck on entry to avoid whack-

ing the rear sloping roofline, but there’s ample knee room for most and

enough head room for all but six-footers. And it’s a cinch with the kids.

Up front, head room is less of an issue, but is still compromised by the sunroof. The driver’s seat can be lowered, but the Veloster is not a car for exceptionally tall occupants. It will, however, carry plenty of cargo with 440 litres behind the 60/40 rear seats. Drop them and there’s enough room to throw in a mountain bike. This vehicle’s ride is compliant but not mushy, taking hard corners with minimal lean. It’s civilized around town, but becomes a bit jarring over rough pavement. I’d chalk that up to the low-profile tires that come with its optional 18-inch alloys.

WIDE HAUNCHES, big alloy wheels and a dual centre exhaust outlet give the 2012 Hyundai Veloster and muscular, yet premium look. Which is a feature I’d probably forgo anyway. Why spend even more for replacement rubber, when 17-inchers look sporty enough. In the Veloster, Hyundai has definitely raised the bar in terms of content and styling for its segment—if you can neatly place it in a particular segment. It’s a coupe, it’s a hatchback, it’s a threequarter sedan. It may not be entirely practical, but

can work for a couple with two kids. I may not agree with Hyundai’s focus on Generation Y as the target buyer, as there are many of us ’older folks’ who like the look—and recognize a bargain when they see one.

MOTORING into one of the most fetching sedans in its segment. Which is still the case for 2012, as the Maxima gets a mild refresh that includes an updated front grille, new rear combination lights, and new 18and 19-inch aluminum-alloys. Nissan has dubbed its exterior design theme “liquid motion,” likening it to the undulation of a wave. Arcane descriptions aside, the Maxima does have a few features worth noting. Firstly, I like the big fenders and broad, powerSee Nissan B8

THE INTERIOR of the 2012 Maxima is warm and inviting with abundant soft-touch

ful shoulders of this vehicle. Combined with the wide stance and optional 19-inch wheels, it gives the Maxima a firmly planted look. The hood too is striking. Nissan refers to it as “catamaran styling,” and with its high sides, dipping towards a power

bulge in the centre, this element hints at the power within. The upturned headlights and wide front grille contribute to the Maxima’s bold first impression, and the high rear deck, LED combination taillights and wide-bore dual exhaust outlets add to its sporting element. Inside, not much has

changed for this model year, except for a few tweaks in illumination, trim and interior colour. What also hasn’t changed is the Maxima continues to be offered as one well equipped model—the 3.5 SV at $37,880. Three option upgrades—Premium, Sport See Nissan B9

Maxima comes well equipped and Navigation—can take it to $40K and beyond. The base model, as you’d expect for the price, comes very well equipped. Standard features include leather-appointed seats, heated in front, with eightway power-adjust for the driver and 4-way for the passenger; heated, leatherwrapped steering wheel (manual tilt/telescopic); multi-info system with seven-inch monitor; smart key with push-button start; dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents; AM/FM/CD/MP3/ WMA Bose audio system with speed-sensitive tvolume, two subwoofers (and centre channel) and steering-wheel-mounted controls; Bluetooth handstfree phone; power moonroof and more. t Aside from technology, it is the little touches that make the Maxima’s interior so inviting. The instrument panel and raised centre console are clean and uncluttered, with a nice use of chrome surrounds for the gauges, audio switches, vent knobs and rings. The metallic accents are an elegant contrast to the (optional) Atlantic cherrywood trim that I had on my tester. Both the layout and ergonomics of the Maxima’s instruments and controls, not to mention choice of materials, show an Infiniti-like attention to detail. Which is high praise indeed, as I believe this luxury marque has some of the best interiors in the business. Optional goodies for the Maxima include seat cooling (front seats only), power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, hard-drive navigation system, rearview camera, DVD playback, power rear sunshade, driver’s seat memory, 19-inch alloys and dual-panel moonroof. The latter is a nice feature, with both panels combining to give the appearance that the roof is made entirely of black glass. Only the front panel opens, and dual power sunshades can be drawn over both sections. Rear seats are spacious with plenty of knee room, and come standard See Nissan B11

IT’S SIMPLE.

readership GETS results. In the 6 years that Abaco Health has been in business, I have tried all the different methods of advertising to reach out to Kelowna. I have used most radio stations, the internet, flyers and of course the Capital News. I have learned that the most effective method of reaching people in Kelowna iss through the Kelowna Capital News. Getting value for money is really important to me, and I have found other means of advertising more expensive when looking at return on investment. Advertising with the Capital News on a regular basis allows me to get Abaco n Health’s name out there under people’s noses, so that when they decide they want to shop for low prices on vitamins, supplements, organic foods or natural cosmetics/skincare, people will consider Abaco Health first. Many of our customers now drive right across town, past is our competitors to shop with us. I believe the reason for this is in part due to the low prices and knowledgeable service we offer, but mainly because of the broad exposure across Kelowna that the Capital News has given Abaco Health.

MOTORING ▼ NISSAN

Maxima deserves second look as 60/40 split fold. With the Sport and Premium packages, however, you get rear outboard bucket seats, with a pass-through replacing the split/fold function. Paddle shifters are also available only in Sport and Premium trim. I’m scratching my head over this, as they should be standard fare in any sports sedan—especially one with a CVT. Yes, the only transmission available on the Maxima is their now largely-perfected Xtronic CVT. I’m typically not a fan of these, especially when accelerating hard, as the continuous wailing (at least until you get up to speed) can be annoying. But that was early days for Nissan, and the current version is both responsive and smooth. In the Maxima, the Xtronic has a selectable Ds mode (drive sport) that improves performance through higher revs, automatic engine braking (for downshifting into a turn) and the ability to maintain engine speed during cornering. And the nice, throaty exhaust note is a bonus. Acceleration is deceivingly quick, as the CVT is more linear than a conventional automatic. There’s no “kick” with each gear change. Despite the Maxima’s brisk launch, I noticed minimal torque

steer, which is a credit to the car’s engineering that has been fine tuned over so many years. Also significant is the speed sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, similar to that used on the 370Z. There’s good road feel, and it’s stable at highway speeds—yet it is also easy to manoeuvre in the big box parking lot. According to Nissan, with new pricing announced for the 2012 Maxima, buyers can save up to $1,920 over the outgoing model. Which I’m sure the company is hoping will translate into more sales for this well deserving, but often overlooked sports sedan.

WIDE HAUNCHES, combination LED taillights and large-bore dual exhaust outlets add a sporting element to the 2012 Nissan Maxima. CONTRIBUTED

Kia Rio5 hatchback improved in every way Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

FALL CITY, Wa.: Kia continues to add or replace models at a dizzying pace, the latest being the 2012 Rio5 five-door subcompact hatchback. Since January 2010 Kia has introduce nine vehicles. That will increase to 10 early next year with the arrival of the Rio four-door sedan. And it won’t stop there. Kia has a brace of vehicles in the pipeline throughout the coming year. The Rio, like the Optima, is a bread and butter car for Kia. Thus Rio is one model they have to get right. The 2012 Rio5 is offered in five trims with starting prices beginning

respectively with the LX ($14,095), LX+ ($15,595), LX ECO (17,695), EX ($16,995) and EX Luxury ($20,295). Driving the front wheels is a 1.6-litre gasoline direct injection (GDI) inline four-cylinder engine with a standard sixspeed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission. Achieving what is claimed a class-leading 138 hp (123 lb/ft of torque) it has a fuel rating of 6.6/4.9L/100 km city/ highway for the manual and 6.8/4.9L/100 km city/highway for the automatic. That highway figure translates to 58 mpg. It is the first sub-compact to offer Idle Stop and Go (ISG) technology as an option on the LX mod-

el where the engine turns off when the vehicle is not in motion such as at a stoplight or in traffic. The engine restarts automatically when the driver lifts off the brake pedal, resulting in lower levels of fuel consumption and emissions. At the press launch we were told ISG, while it sounds simple, requires a lot of extra engineering and computerization such as a reinforced battery. Another example is the starter motor. On a standard car the motor has a normal life span of 50,000-60,000 starts. The motor on an ISG car has to last for at least 350,000 starts. Another gas saving See Kia B13

technology item on the Rio5 with automatic transmission is the Active ECO system. Turned off and on by a button to the left of the steering wheel, when activated, it optimizes the engine and transmission for best fuel economy. While it was conceived in Kia’s design studios in Irvine, Calif., the Rio5 has a very European look to it. That’s not surprising, as one of Kia’s major markets is Europe. During the press launch, I followed one and, from the rear, it looked very much like a VW Golf especially with the very bold wheels similar to the Golf GTI. From the side, however, that upward flowing character line first seen on the Optima sedan and Sportage CUV is clearly evident and is a design cue that continues to evolve. The Rio rides on an all-new platform that is longer, wider and lower than the previous generation. Suspension at the front is MacPherson struts, coil springs and a stabilizer bar with a torsion beam axle suspension in the rear. Despite the $14,095 starting price, Rio’s chassis features a highstrength steel structure that includes an innovative “Halo Body” construction designed to help protect occupants in certain side impact and rollover collisions. Standard safety features include six airbags (dual advanced front and front-seat mounted side as well as full-length side curtain), side-impact door beams, height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners, three-point seatbelts for all seating positions and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). Also standard on all Rio trims for increased driver and passenger safety are Electronic Stability Control (ESC), fourwheel disc brake with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), which coordinates the car’s ESC and ABS to help the driver stay in control of the vehicle. The base LX includes body-colour door handles and side mirrors and 15-inch steel wheels with 185/65R15 tires. Also standard is a rear spoiler which not only ads to the sporty design of the new Rio but also improves aerodynamics. To accentuate the premium look, side mirrors are attached to the door

rather than the plastic triangle like so many others in the segment. Also standard are power windows, driver’s seat height adjuster, map

MOTORING

Wide wheel track give Rio5 great stability Kia from B13 fraction over four metres and a wheelbase of 2.6 metres, the wheels really are out to the four corners of the car.

The wider the track, the better the stability in terms of pitch and yaw. Where you feel this is in sweeping corners of which there are hundreds in northern Washington

State. On the highway, the Rio5 is surprisingly quiet, one of the reasons being the outside mirrors mounted on the door not the A-pillar.

You have to keep an eye on the speedo as speed can creep up on you as my co-driver found out when he was stopped for speeding on the freeway. I used the ECO but-

ton a few times. If you are travelling on highway speeds, there is a noticeable decline in power alSee Kia B17

most like gearing down without the noise. Once you get to a desired highway speed, click on the cruise and the fuel saving begins, which is where I’d probably use it the most. In town with the ECO on, acceleration is sluggish off that line, not slow mind you, but the computer is working overtime to adjust the need for speed with this need to optimize fuel consumption. Every time I look around the latest model is larger than the vehicle it replaces and that is true of the 2012 Rio5. The rear seat is now livable for adults while the view from the front seat is much better because of the sense of driver and passenger space created when the interior designers scooped out every square centimeter they could to make the Rio5 feel more roomy. All in all, the new Rio5

is a major improvement over the out-going model and is a contender in the sub-compact segment to be taken seriously.

Survived by his loving wife of 58 years Gladys, daughter Sheryl (Jason) Harris and their three children Rachael, Mic and Keziah, brother Jake, sister Kay Bartel.

FIRST MEMORIAL FUNERAL SERVICE

to Tanya Jennens of Kelowna and Jonathan Garratt of Penetang on their Engagement.

One of Dot’s gifts was an innate ability to connect with people, which won her many friends and admirers over the years. Her positive “can-

Even in her mid ‘90’s she was a pole walker, a carpet bowler, a Tai Chi practitioner, a voracious reader, and a frequent shopper in search of the “best deal” a skill she honed in the Depression Era. Dot never missed a BC Lions game, and usually had a lot of “advice” for Coach Buono. She was heartbroken when the Vancouver Canucks lost in the Stanley Cup final, but, not surprisingly, was convinced that this would be their year. She also enjoyed frequent visits to her favourite restaurant, Gasthaus on the Lake, where the staff always greeted her with a smile and a bowl of French Onion Soup – her favourite dish!

For the past 16 years Dot was a resident of Chateau on the Lake, where she enjoyed meaningful friendships with her neighbours. Dot’s family would like to acknowledge and thank all of them, but would be remiss if we did not single out Dot & Vern Moberg and Dick & Joan Menzies, who literally became part of Dot’s extended family. Dot was very generous with many charities, and in lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the charity of one’s choice. While Dot has passed from this life, her legacy here lives on and she will never be forgotten. We love you Dot!

European engineering model adapted to homes Matt McKinney CONTRIBUTOR

Sometime in the next few weeks, Paul Brazelton will move his family into a 1935 Tudor in south Minneapolis that has no furnace. He’s just finished a massive renovation of the family home and even though winter’s bearing down, he removed the boiler and plans to use that basement space for his daughters’ homeschool classroom. He also took out the fi replace. r If this sounds like the most uninviting house r(and classroom) in Minneapolis, there’s something else to know: Brazelton, a software engineer and passionate environmentalist, has nearly finished a retrofit of his house to the stringent engineering standards of the Passivhaus model, a German system of homebuilding that uses insulation and highly efficient doors and windows to save energy. The finished 2,000 square-foot home could be warmed even in the dead of winter with a pair of small space heaters, Brazelton said, though the family plans to piggyback on their hot water heater and use an in-floor heating system in the basement. “We’re really nervous,” said Brazelton, halfjoking, “because when it’s 20 degrees below and you can feel your house contracting and cracking like it’s just trying to resist the cold, it’s hard to believe that two space heat-

Al Stegora fits insulation around windows of a home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Brazelton family is retrofitting their home to meet requirements of the Passivhaus movement that means they will be so well insulated they will not need a furnace despite the cold Minnesota winters.

ers from Target will do the trick for us.” The finished project is on track to be certified by the Passivhaus institute of Darmstadt, Germany, as the first “EnerPHit” home in North America, according to the architect for the

house, Tim Eian. The EnerPHit standard, designed for existing homes, has been used thousands of times in German-speaking and Scandinavian countries, said Eian, a German native.

Such homes see their energy use fall from 75 to 90 per cent. Brazelton and his wife, Desiree, have remodeled two other homes before, but never on the scale of the house he’s working on now.

When they found it more than four years ago, the three bedroom house had outdated mechanical systems and an awkward layout. A year ago they had “one-time” money and decided on an addition, but their plans quick-

ly grew. Brazelton, looking for ideas, toured a Passive House in Hudson, Minn., and came away impressed. Six months into the design, Eian, the architect, called to say he had run their latest plan through a computer program and it showed that the Brazelton home could meet the EnerPHit standard. “That kind of captured our imaginations and short circuited the logical part of our brain and went directly to the emotional excited part and we were like, ‘Let’s do it,’” said Brazelton. The core idea of a Passive House is that it’s so well insulated that it doesn’t require a lot of energy. Triple-paned windows, highly efficient doors and loads and loads of insulation make the house incredibly airtight. A mechanical ventilator blows fresh air in and stale air out. A heat exchanger takes the heat out of the outgoing air and adds it to the incoming air to minimize heat loss. A heavy duty retrofitting of this type can run $50 to $100 US per square foot, said Eian. A new 1,750 sq. ft. house built to Passive House standards would take about 15 years to pay off the extra cost of insulation, windows and doors, Eian estimated. Desiree and the Brazelton’s three daughters moved in with relatives as the work started this summer. Stucco was removed from the exterior. The rotting chimney was torn down. Heavy

machinery dug a trench around the basement foundation. What followed was a complicated process of adding insulation so that the home’s shell—everything from the attic to the exterior walls to the basement slab—would be wrapped in insulation. The slab was broken up so that EPS foam could be laid under the house. The exterior walls were given vertical wooden ribs every few inches to hold the 9.5 inches of cellulose that would be required. The exterior walls will have an R44 rating. The attic will hit R80. Brazelton is doing much of the traditional renovation work himself, with the help of his father and a few friends. He sleeps inside the unheated, unfinished house on a cot, sometimes with the family’s two dogs for companions. The more complicated work is being handled by a professional builder, Ryan Stegora. Stegora’s never done this type of retrofit, said Brazelton, but has learned quickly. Brazelton also talked to a marketing designer, someone who could help him navigate the building industry and connect with suppliers. Sensing that Brazelton’s home will serve as a model, some companies have offered home building products at a discount. That’s helped offset the added cost of shipping some of the home’s parts from Germany, including vacuum insulated panels, triple-paned windows and the ventilator.
