Mill Creek chemical spill cleanup cost over $4 million Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER
It’s cost more than $4 million, but an army of scientists, ecologists and other specialists was mustered by Univar Canada to battle the chemical spill that resulted from the Stewart Centre fire last August. All results indicate there are no long-term effects in Mill Creek. Runoff from firefighting efforts flowed into storm sewer systems and then Mill Creek and Okanagan Lake, where nearby residents found dead fish floating in unnatural-coloured water in the creek the day following the fire. Univar Canada, one of the country’s largest chemical distributors, had a variety of chemicals stored in the centre, and hired wildlife biologists, riparian ecologists, water quality specialists and fish biologists to do a hands and knees search to learn what had been affected by toxic runoff from the firefighting efforts. Jim Bird, the safety, health and environment manager for Univar, says the company has often had practices for such situations, but never had to use that knowledge in a real situation prior to the Stewart Centre fire. “We pulled out all the stops,” he commented. At one point, he said every vacuum truck in the province was in use in Kelowna cleaning out storm drains, catchment basins and even creek water that had been contaminated by pesticides and other chemicals. The very-contaminated water was trucked immediately to the coast for treatment, while the lightly-contaminated water was stored here and later trucked away for treatment, he said. Scientists overturned rocks, counted songbirds and investigated reports of dead ducks, which incidentally, turned out to have died from other causes. They sampled fish and sediments, water and plants—both immediately and long after the plug of chemicals went through the system—and after that first week there were no significant toxins found in the system, said Bird.

PROTESTER Darin Howard speaks to the crowd gathered outside the Kelowna RCMP detachment on Sunday to protest how Buddy Tavares was treated when he was arrested on Jan. 7. Just before the protest rally, the public was informed that the Abbotsford Police detectives conducting the investigation had learned charges had been recommended to Crown counsel against the police officer involved in the Tavares’ controversial arrest.

Kelowna cop may face assault charge Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
Abbotsford Police are currently working on their report to Crown counsel, asking that the prosecutor’s office charge Kelow-
na RCMP Const. Geoff Mantler with assault causing bodily harm for his actions during the Jan. 7 arrest of Buddy Tavares. The announcement of the pending recommendation came just an hour
before a rally planned by people behind a Facebook page calling for the officer to be charged with assault got underway in Kelowna Sunday afternoon. “It’s the right call,” said rally organizer John He-
witson of the announcement of a potential charge, later calling the announcement a “win” for the group who attended the rally. And while the focus on seeing charges against the officer was an impe-
tus for the rally, Hewitson said other changes need to be made. He suggested police cars need to be outfitted with dash cameras and ofSee Assault A3

ficers with wireless mics so that all potential incidents are captured on tape. He also called for an end to police investigating themselves. “People are sick and tired of this going on,” he said. “Police forces should not be investigating police forces.” Hewitson also called into question the practice that officers are suspended with pay while under investigation, saying taxpayers are currently paying $1.3 million for officers under suspension. “Why should we have to pay for that?” he asked. The rally brought out an estimated 375 people, many carrying placards saying things like: “Police get paid for crime,” “RCMP to serve and protect—not kick them while they’re down” and “Stop the abuse.” The crowd marched from City Park to the RCMP detachment on Doyle Avenue, which was shut down for a block to accommodate the crowd. Police were on hand for the road closure and to watch the crowd, and one officer was seen on the roof, filming the group as they jeered at her. Also at the rally was the man whose arrest prompted the event—Buddy Tavares. Tavares said he attended the rally after receiving “an incredible amount” of phone calls and Facebook and email messages. “It’s to support everyone else who is supporting me,” said Tavares, noting his isn’t the only case of someone who has tangled with the RCMP. Tavares, a Harvest Golf Club employee on disability following a motorcycle crash last summer, was arrested on KLO Road on Jan. 7 after someone reported a man with a gun on the golf course grounds. Police later received reports of shots fired. Tavares said he was there to shoot at the geese, as he always did when he was actively working at the golf course. When he saw police that morning, he pulled over, assuming the officer would pass him, but instead found himself staring at the barrel of a police gun. The arrest was captured on video and the images show Tavares on his hands and knees when Const. Mantler kicked him in the head. Tavares said the kick has set him back “months” in his recovery from the car accident. He has loose teeth, a constant headache and his bruised and bloody eye is healing. He also says he is still “wobbly.” Still, despite the experience, Tavares said his view of police in general hasn’t changed. “He’s (Geoff Mantler) put a serious blemish on the police and, seriously, I don’t believe they deserve it,” said Tavares as protesters marched to the RCMP detachment. He hopes the outcome of the rally will lead to police “cleaning house.” “You get a box of apples and one’s rotten, you throw it in the garbage,” said Tavares, applying the fruit analogy to the RCMP organization. “The rest are good. You don’t, you know, throw the whole thing out.” Mantler has been suspended with pay since Jan. 10 and is subject to an internal code of conduct investigation for his actions Jan. 7, in addition to the criminal probe by Abbotsford Police. Tavares is facing a charge of careless use of a firearm.
KELOWNA RCMP kept a close watch on the protest rally held on Sunday and attended by close to 400 people, including Buddy Tavares (middle left photo) and one person who refused to remove their identity-hiding bandanna.

W ASHLEE HYATT
Park bench in memory of slain teen Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER
A place where friends and family of Ashlee Hyatt can go to reflect about the murdered teen has finally been completed. On Monday afternoon, the teen’s mother, sister and several friends were on hand after a District of Peachland staffer attached a series of three plaques to her memorial bench, remembering the 16-yearold who lost her life in June. Mom Charrie Hyatt said that the Peachland officials called her Monday afternoon to tell her a district worker was ready to put the plaques on, but they would wait for her to arrive so she could be the first person to sit on the bench, erected in memory of her older daughter. “I’ve never rushed so quick,” said Hyatt. The bench was the first thing she thought to do as a memorial after the killing, Hyatt said, even be-
fore she started a bursary in Ashlee’s name. “She was murdered in Peachland, so I wanted something there for her,” said Hyatt. A friend of Ashlee’s started the legwork for the bench. After learning of the cost, Hyatt posted a request on Facebook for help pay for the bench, as fundraising was already underway for the bursary. Parents of one of Ashlee’s friends, Blake and Katherine Gray, stepped up to cover the cost. “It was pretty overwhelming,” said Hyatt. “They’re a pretty amazing family.” Hyatt chose the location, near the Swim Bay docks in Peachland where Ashlee and her friends would often hang out, so that her friends would have an opportunity to sit and remember her while at the beach. “Now everybody has a place to sit and talk to her, remember her,” said Hyatt. Ashlee died June 2, 2010, af-
ter being fatally wounded at a house party on San Clemente Avenue in Peachland. A teenaged girl, who cannot be named, is charged with second degree murder in Ashlee’s death, as well as assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon in relation to injuries another teen suffered at the same party. Meanwhile, fundraising is continuing for the Ashlee Hyatt Memorial Bursary. This year, Charrie Hyatt hopes to award $2,000 to a Mount Boucherie Secondary graduate involved in the peer mentor program. If you would like to donate, you may send cheques to the Central Okanagan Bursary and Scholarship Society (COBSS), 1-616 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 4X4. Mail should be addressed to Pauline Kirk and cheques made out to COBSS, with Ashlee Hyatt Memorial Bursary written in the memo line.

No jail for the Westside Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER
West Kelowna will not be entering the running to have a correctional centre built in the area. Mayor Doug Findlater said his own view is that the best thing to do is to support the work done in the past in the City of Kelowna where land has been acquired, and get on with it. He added the particular site is appropriate and moving forward on the new facility will benefit the district by relieving pressure on Kelowna cells that could back up on the West Kelowna detachment. Findlater pointed out West Kelowna only averages three prisoners a month transferred to correctional facilities. Coun. Bryden Winsby said he had supported the district getting on the list for consideration as a possible site for the centre, but thought the possibility of it being built in West Kelowna remote. “I think the prospects of us putting a proposal together are somewhat limited, let alone nonexistent.” Winsby said the province should consider communities that need the facility most. He added his preference would be Lumby and area. “Those communities have suffered greatly because of the recent downturn, and have lost many employers.” Coun. Carol Zanon noted she did not think West Kelowna would even be in the running for consideration. She said the district should examine what would suit their needs and their police department’s needs the best. Coun. Rosalind Neis said she would be surprised if there was any interest in our community in pursuing a jail within district borders. She added it would be inappropriate for the district to throw themselves behind one or the other proposal, as there is history involved they may not be aware of. She pointed out when the facility was initially discussed for the site in Kelowna, times were rich and business was booming. She added that now the construction industry is facing more difficult times.

‘Smoking materials’ blamed for house fire
Parking fines will escalate

Two people were pulled from a burning house by firefighters on Tuesday morning after they were called to an early morning fire in West Kelowna. Fire crews from West Kelowna Fire Rescue were called to the 600block of Keefe Road at 5:12 a.m. and arrived to
find the top floor and garage fully involved with heavy fire, said assistant fire chief Kerry Klonteig. “Initial reports from dispatch was that there were possible occupants still in the building,” said Klonteig. “Once supporting units arrived, firefighters entered, did a search and located two male occupants still on the lower floor.

THE BURNT remains of a home in the 600-block of Keefe Road in West Kelowna, which caught on fire early Tuesday morning. “They were brought out and given to the care of B.C. Ambulance Service.” He says a total of four people were in the home at the time of the fire and are all okay. They are being cared for by Emergency Social Services. Klonteig said the fire
caused extensive damage to the top floor of the home, while the lower portion suffered smoke and water damage. Damage from the fire is estimated at $200,000 and the property and its contents were insured, fire officials say. Fire investigators con-
cluded their investigation into the cause of the fire yesterday afternoon and say the flames were sparked by smoking materials that were in a couch. They earlier said the cause is not considered to be suspicious. firstname.lastname@example.org
Plug parking meters for as long as it takes to finish your business downtown, or be faced with an escalating fine that will soon start at $10. Starting Feb. 1, the cost of a parking ticket, in the first 24 hours, will double from the $5 locals have become accustomed to since 2002. The fine will be $10 for a week until it ultimately rises to $30. While the change is slight compared to ticket costs in other municipalities, corporate services director Rob Mayne told city councillors the aim is to give parking tickets teeth. “People would rather pay a $5 fee than park in a parkaid,” he said. “A $10 fee is more incentive to find appropriate parking, rather than roll the dice.” In addition to convincing locals that tickets aren’t the equivalent of parking passes, the change in policy will also help the city usher in its bylaw adjudication system. This system allows these municipalities to deal with bylaw disputes at the local level rather than through the provincial court system. Previously, anyone wishing to dispute a bylaw ticket had to appear in a B.C. provincial court, an expensive and time-consuming process for the disputant, the province and municipalities. And, regardless of the process change, city councillors said it was a step in the right direction. “I think it’s a fair balance,” said Coun. Angela Reid. “I am personally responsible (for taking) the $5 charge …because I just forget to plug the meter.” Coun. Luke Stack pointed out that a $10 fine is “cheap” in supporting the bylaw change.

Test scores were on the tip of Susan Lambert’s tongue Monday as the president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation prepared to touch down in Kelowna Tuesday. In the city for an induction ceremony at the
Central Okanagan Teachers’ Association, Lambert took time to address the media and respond to the latest move from B.C.’s Minister of Education, who spent the weekend actively encouraging parents to let their children take the Foundation Skills Assessment tests. “As a parent, you have
the right to know how your child is performing,” Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said in an open letter to parents issued Sunday. “The FSA program, which takes less than 10 hours of your child’s time between kindergarten and Grade 8, is an important building block for your

child’s future success.” The minister contends the test is a way to measure individual student achievement and teacher success by asking standard questions to see if each student performs at par; but Lambert is quite insistent that’s not the case. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” she said in a telephone interview before her arrival. The teachers’ union contends the testing assumes there is an average student population in a given school, when in fact, schools and students vary greatly with some geographical areas coping with things like higher levels of immigration, for example, and others hampered by severe economic disparity. As the tests leave no room for these human variables, Lambert says the test only encourages teachers to teach to the test, rather than facing the complex student variables of the day and trying to ensure students learn from that point.
The BCTF contends the tests devalue the level of teaching that goes on rather than ensuring students meet a unified standard. “You want the assessment to be based on the teaching that goes on in the classroom,” said Lambert. The testing covers reading, writing and numeracy (math). The FSA battle is nothing new with a similar war of wills played out in the media each year; and the attention seems to be catching on. The minister’s own numbers indicate more parents are allowing their children to be excused from the testing. Asked why the BCTF has not achieved any movement toward having the test format dropped given the controversy, Lambert said simply, “There hasn’t been an ear in the ministry.” The teachers would like to see a scientifically based, randomized test developed to accomplish the same ends as FSAs. email@example.com

W KSS CONTROVERSY
Life is about adjustments Jennifer Smith
f we can take anything from the world of international politics this month, it’s that rhetoric and the way we communicate has an infinite power to do harm. For those who followed the attack ads during the U.S. midterm elections and, of course, the now infamous death threats that accompanied Obama’s attempt to bring a form of universal health care to the United States, it was shockingly clear that unspeakable violence was on the horizon. No one would have guessed it would unfold at a seemingly innocuous meet-and-greet for Senator Gabrielle Gifford held at her neighbourhood Safeway; but the idea someone would or could be killed due to the political climate within the country was not a state secret. In Canada, we believe we don’t tolerate violent, antagonistic rhetoric. When Tom Flanagan, Harper’s campaign organizer, half-jokingly suggested while on live television that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be assassinated, he was quickly thumbed by fellow politicians and the Canadian press who didn’t let the issue die for a week. His apology was prompt. And yet, as individual citizens, sometimes we can still take things way too far, taking simple discussions to a level that goes well beyond the unpleasant. While no one is making death threats over the timetable changes at Kelowna Secondary School, the level of hateful rhetoric now flying about is palpable. What started as a failure to effectively communicate has been blown way out of proportion, no

Jennifer Smith doubt causing all manner of hurt and misinformation. It’s a shame when these things occur and something we in the media see all too frequently. Sure there are the issues like the Geoff Mantler case—the cop currently accused of kicking a man in the face while he was down on all fours— which rally vast amounts of public scrutiny because, frankly, as concerned citizens we need to pay attention when the people we pay to uphold the law appear to break it. But when something very, very simple, like a change in the way a school day is organized, gets 500 people out to a gymnasium and then degenerates into pure misery, well, those are the days you wonder what the heck the world is coming to. If you don’t have a child at KSS, the big change proposed by the school district is to take the school from a linear timetable to a semester system, which would bring KSS in line with every other high school in the district. The teachers will likely have to adjust how they teach, as the classes will
go from eight one-hour (or so) sessions to four two-and-a-half-hour sessions. This is likely a pretty serious inconvenience, but hey, all of us deal with inconvenience in our jobs from time to time—and they’re not publicly fighting it. The parents, though, are another story. It’s important to point out that neither the very angry parents who do not want any change, nor the school district, can give anyone an educational reason why one timetable is better than the other. One would certainly hope there really isn’t much difference as every other high school in the district has been on this semester system for some time. It’s also rather important to note the school district has given no indication that discussion on subjects like band and French couldn’t be accommodated to ensure those subjects, where it might do harm to be absent from the curriculum for half the year should the school go semester, could keep running as is. What they did do is levy a decision to switch to a semester system far too swiftly without properly easing and handholding the parents into it. Yeah, I know. What is the world coming to? Good communication would require that the school district, whether they’ve been discussing this internally since Adam
and Eve first spotted the apple or not, at least talk the matter over with the parents at the school before making a decision. Instead, they made a decision, then left an open time frame for the parents to complain. And boy, have they complained. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out the school district really dropped the ball in the way they communicated what they wanted to do, but hey, this happens. Life, as we should probably be teaching all the kids involved, is all about adaptation and compromise. There are times in life where each and everyone of us behaves less than absolutely perfectly. There are big issues in education. The FSAs— big issue. Provincial school closures and demographic shifts affecting neighbourhood schools— big issue. Teachers’ pay—big issue. Poor communication over a time timetable change? Don’t shoot the messenger here people but, really, there are some times in life when you just have to let the flames die down, stand back and ask yourself if an issue is really worth the level of anger involved. Without an ability to adapt, change and juggle, new realities of life for all future high school students would be pretty bleak. firstname.lastname@example.org

W BUDDY TAVARES ARREST
Assault fallout ‘wasn’t positive’ Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
Video footage of Const. Geoff Mantler kicking a Kelowna man in the head while he was on all fours “alarmed” city politicians, but they cautioned residents to not paint all Mounties with the same brush. “Last week was a little bit trying with the issue of the RCMP…it put us front and centre across the nation, which wasn’t positive,” said Mayor Sharon Shepherd, during the tail end of Monday’s regular council meeting. “But the superintendent has dealt with it appropriately, and we will have to await the response.” Shortly after footage of Const. Mantler kicking Buddy Tavares in the head was passed over to Supt. Bill McKinnon, he contacted the city manager to brace him for the fallout. He also, said Shepherd, started moving forward with the process that allowed him to address the violent incident. That included bringing in the Abbotsford police.
Sharon Shepherd They have since conducted an investigation, and will be recommending a criminal charge against Mantler. (See story A1). “As much as I have been alarmed by what happened, I am supportive of how our police responded to it,” said Coun. Luke Stack. “Even (Sunday) with the protest, it was very professionally handled …and the protestors also handled themselves well.” That protest brought out more than 300 who wanted to express their dissatisfaction with police actions. While the event was peaceful, Coun. Michele Rule said that she hopes that anger isn’t being mis-
directed. “We want to encourage people to not misplace anger onto other officers,” she said. “Other officers don’t deserve to be treated (badly) because one officer makes a mistake—we shouldn’t paint everyone with the same brush.” Rule went on to say Mounties she’s spoken with have said they “feel terrible about what happened” just like everyone else. While most councillors took an opportunity to weigh in on the issue, there is little they can do to influence the organization, regardless of the fact policing accounts for more than 20 per cent of the city’s budget. “It’s always difficult for us to explain they are contracted through the

province,” said Shepherd, noting that Kelowna has a positive relationship with the local contingent of Mounties. “Superintendent McKinnon is in front of council monthly, and that doesn’t happen in all other communities.” That said, there are issues following this incident that have continued to dog the police, regardless of how swiftly they dealt with matters. One of the most pervasive, said Shepherd, are concerns about whether an officer deserves pay over the course of a suspension. “It seems to be a concern to many people, and we have no say,” said Shepherd. “If that has to be changed, then there has to be legislation to change it.”
$6.33 a month for the average user. While this increase alone isn’t substantial, there were increases last February and November. The grand total, to date, means power costs about 16 per cent more than it did a year ago. The increase will be levied in March, and Mayor Sharon Shepherd explained if they weren’t to approve the increase to city utility users, the cost would have to be distributed to all Kelowna tax payers. As is, the city buys its power through Fortis, which was granted the increase through the B.C. Utilities Commission, and if they didn’t pass the rate down to consumers the budget would be thrown out of whack with an extra $1.2 million cost coming the city’s way.

Lake Pine water utility acquired Fire has caused firm to rethink Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER
The Lake Pine water system will be taken over and upgraded by the district of Lake Country, as the municipality continues to acquire privately owned utilities. A loan through the Municipal Finance Authority was authorized at the Regional District of

served 14 properties off Ponderosa Road. Baker said the system was failing and property owners agreed to have the municipality take over. A private water system at Coral Beach was also taken over by Lake Country, shortly after the incorporation of the municipality. Baker pointed out there are two large systems still privately run, in the form of Alto Utilities and Eastside Utility. Baker said the condition of some of the private water systems being acquired is poor, saying that most of the utilities were put in at the least cost possible, and maintenance does not always occur. “Alto Utilities is still in pretty good shape, but it’s an older system.” Baker pointed out that with new health regulations being brought in, the smaller systems will have trouble meeting standards. He said private utilities can get deferment from filtration if they can show that they meet provincial guidelines and stan-
dards for water quality, but that deferment is not easily obtained. Turbidity can be an issue with the health unit, he said, and water systems that draw on lake or surface sources usually have more colour in them. Baker said turbid water does not necessarily contain pathogens, but water particulate can mask pathogens so that chlorine treatment cannot remove them. Groundwater sources usually provide a higher quality of water because they do not contain surface contaminants. He noted that the provincial government is supposed to be the oversight for private utilities, and the municipality does not check up on them at all. There are about 1,600 or more private utilities in B.C., and the province does not have the personnel or the capacity to oversee them. Baker said the result is that private water systems fall behind in standards and maintenance. email@example.com
local chemical storage needs Spill from A1 However, they continue to conduct studies and scientists will be doing more water sampling again next week. They have also set up a hatchery test, using sand, gravel and sediments from the bottom of the creek in a hatchery box, with eggs taken from a hatchery. Once the kokanee hatch this spring, they’ll study their growth and development to ensure there’s no toxicity remaining in the creek’s sediments. However, Bird noted that today’s chemicals are quite different from those of decades ago. “Gone are the days of the residual chemicals. Today’s products have to break down, so the substances that entered the system aren’t likely to be there still in the same form,” he explained. He added that any chemical is a matter of dose response, so a little can have a favourable effect even if a lot can have a fatal result. “We even washed out the storm drain system and collected all that up.” Sacks of carbon were used to dam the creek in two places, so the creek’s water would have to flow over them. Carbon acts as a sponge and chemicals tend to cling to it. Bird said he has no answer to the concerns expressed on the Kelownacapnews.com website by a reader who lives
along Mill Creek, that there are far fewer ducks along the shores today than there used to be. That reader said he doesn’t expect there will be any young this spring, but no evidence the scientists have uncovered in their investigation provides a basis for that conclusion. “We’re not just brushing it off, but we’re optimistic there won’t be any impact like that,” commented Bird. “All indications are that there are no longterm impacts.” Today, Bird said the company is doing things differently and not storing any quantity of chemicals in the Okanagan. Since the construction of the Coquihalla Highway; a reduction in the amount of acreage in apple orchards in the Okanagan; the implementation of the Sterile Insect Release program, and a move to vineyards which don’t require as much chemical management, there’s less need for storage here in the valley. Instead, Univar now stores chemicals at certified facilities in Abbotsford and Airdrie, Alberta and they’re shipped to the Okanagan as needed, he said. No cause for the fire was ever determined, due in part to the amount of damage that resulted. Total losses were estimated at more than $5 million to the seven businesses that were located in the Kirschner Road centre. firstname.lastname@example.org

A 14-year-old boy remained in custody Tuesday morning after being arrested for allegedly stabbing another teen on Saturday afternoon. Police were called to Orchard Plaza on Cooper Road shortly before 4 p.m. on Saturday after a witness called to report a stabbing in a parking lot outside the movie theatre. Officers arrived to find a 15-year-old boy suffering from a serious stab wound to his upper chest. He was taken to hospital, where he remained on Monday in stable condition. Soon after arriving, police arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with the stabbing and say they recovered the knife used in the crime. Police say the two youths knew each other and that an altercation between the two preceded the stabbing. Const. Steve Holmes said it appears that youth carrying weapons is becoming more common. “The scary part is that they’re not averse to using them,” he said. Police say the arrested youth was expected to make a court appearance Monday on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. However, his case was put over to Tuesday and results weren’t known at press deadline.

Lake Country Mayor James Baker noted the Lake Pine utility serves close to 74 properties, and was put in by the developer. The municipality is in the process of taking over the Woodsdale water system as well. Baker said several studies have to be done before Woodsdale changes hands. The cost of upgrades to the water system is borne by the users. The loan for the Lake Pine utility offers the users the ability to pay up front or over time. “If more want to pay it over time, then the municipality borrows the funds from the Municipal Finance Authority,” Baker said, noting the upgrade costs are added to the taxes of the utility users. The municipality of Lake Country has taken over several private water systems over the years, including a utility that

W OUR VIEW
A pause for thought
hile we are engaged in debate in Kelowna over many issues, from an RCMP officer kicking an arrested suspect in the head to whether or not city councillors should get a raise, there is always hope that the issues we face will be resolved and we will move forward. For the people of Haiti, there is little of that hope to cling to. It’s been one year since a 7.0magnitude earthquake brought this nation to its knees.
Billions of dollars have been pledged to help the country get back on its feet, but the country still can’t get a foothold it seems. From Haiti’s grim cholera-ridden streets, we in Canada should have a new appreciation for what we have, especially for the basics of food, water, shelter, health care and well-run government. Reconstruction of the country is moving in slow motion. Only five per cent of the rubble in the Haitian capital of Port-au-
MAIN SWITCHBOARD 250-763-3212
Prince has been cleared since the earthquake. According to Canadian officials, 85 per cent of its citizens lived in abject poverty before the quake. Only one in five had access to clean water. After the earth shook, 30 hospitals were destroyed. Three out of four medical schools were levelled, as was the nation’s largest nursing hospital. Add hurricanes, disease and political instability to the mix, and the devastation is worse
than some war zones. Meanwhile, many of us Canadians go about our daily lives and find plenty to complain about. Some Haitians lost entire families in the quake and have little to live for. One million people are homeless or in camps. Sexual violence is rampant. But in spite of all that, the Haitian people haven’t given up on their nation. It’s a sombre situation that offers us plenty of reasons to pause and be grateful for what we have in Canada.

derings to a committee of three qualified community volunteers. The volunteers look at what other mayors and councillors are paid elsewhere, compare the workloads here and there, ask questions, gather information and make recommendations. Sometimes they say the mayor’s job should pay more, other times it’s a hike for councillors. I can’t remember the pay level ever being cut. It’s true council appoints the committee members and it approves the recommendation. But each year, the approval is simply a rubber stamp. The key here however—in addition to the use of an outside committee—is that the recommendations
don’t kick in until after the next municipal election. The message to incumbents is clear—if you get back in, you win. For newcomers, remuneration levels are known in advance. As for what the city pays its mayor and councillors—$87,902 and $30,765 respectively, with one-third of those amounts tax-free—well, that’s a different debate. Some think it’s too high, some think it’s too low and others think it’s just right. But no matter the level, even the most lax council member earns his or her money over the course of a year. The hours they put in, the research they do, their access to the public and
the responsibility they handle easily translate their respective paycheques into pretty low per-hour rates. This year, given the recent economic turmoil, a pay hike for council members may or may not be in the cards. But if it is, and if re-elected, incumbents and newcomers alike really want to make a statement, they could always just follow West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater. When he was awarded a pay hike last year, he gave it back. Alistair Waters is the Capital News’ assistant editor. firstname.lastname@example.org

They had every right to do so and their voices and concerns were shared across this nation through the media. My purpose for writing this letter is to be the voice I never heard at that rally. I am the voice that is grateful for the brave and loyal service of the RCMP officers who do not use brutal and cruel force on citizens. My voice is for the dying person in a fatal car crash whose last human contact, the officer on duty, is holding their hand until more help arrives. My voice is for the mother of three who cries into the bullet proof vest of the officer who got her domestic violence call. My voice is for the residents who were evacuated from their fiery neighbourhood by members whose own homes and families were in peril while they were
To the editor: I am a 101-year-old man who has lived most of my life in British Columbia. I have seen a lot in my life, and am disgusted by how some police are treating people these days. When I saw that young police officer kick that man in the face, in Kelowna, I got so angry. In my day, police officers were gentlemen. They were respected because they treated others with respect. That fellow in Kelowna was down on all fours, doing as he was asked, when he was
brutally kicked in the face for no reason. I was in the army and fought in the war. Even there we knew that you do not kick a man when he is down. This is not the way police should be acting, and when they do, they should not continue to be paid. It is sad to see how much our Canadian RCMP, of whom I used to be so proud, have fallen. I hope these kind of actions will not go unpunished. Lawrence Durelle, Armstrong
guiding us to safety. My voice is for the husband or wife who says goodbye to their spouse everyday as they leave home armed to protect our city. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police consist of a large group of men and women who, by majority, want to the right thing for us as Canadian citizens and law abiding individuals. We have seen it on television and Internet the results of that minority of policing gone very bad but to judge the whole institution from what we see in the media is ludicrous. Next time it could be you or a loved one that need to feel safe, if only for a moment, and the next emergency 911 call could be your own. I am the voice of my family and friends who say thank you to the RCMP for being there for us. Wendy Gill, Kelowna
To the editor: Reading the letter pages, I understand the reaction of caring citizens. They were appalled at the treatment Mr. Buddy Tavares received at the hand of a single police constable. Sadly, in this case, the adage, a picture is worth a thousand words, is overpowering. Having said that, like many, I have the utmost respect for the RCMP. I will not, despite the outrageous actions of the odd member, be tempted to condemn the entire force. It would be too easy and too irresponsible. People are angry, and the intensity of anger is at its highest and I have never seen that before in Kelowna. It
is quite all right to let out steam. Heck, I do that often. Afterwards, I feel relieved and calm, and I am good for another 20 kilometres. Supt. Bill McKinnon operates within directives laid down. He did what he is allowed to do. In the mind of many, it is not enough, and I have to agree. I have written before than the RCMP should not investigate itself. The onus is on the Federal government to make the necessary changes. I am upset with the action of a single member, but I will not use the same brush to tarnish all members of the force.

Using life insurance in business succession avoids ‘fire sale’
n the event of the untimely death of a business owner, key person insurance for small or large business owners can provide a critical component to a business continuing on in the future. To protect your business, your family, and business partners, you can implement a buy/sell agreement that specifies what happens to the in-
terests of a deceased business owner. You can purchase life insurance—rather than use personal funds or business assets, to fund the buy/sell agreement. If an uninsured person dies without key man insurance in place, the business may have to be sold at a “fire sale” price. Many partners sign a legal agreement to buy one another out during

life. But if one partner dies unexpectedly, there may be no guarantee the other partner has the financing in place, to cover the cost of the business they have built together. Building a successful business takes decades. The solution is a life insurance policy on the business owner or on a sole proprietor. The company takes out the policy, and pays the premiums. Upon death, the life insurance policy proceeds are paid into a capital dividend account. On a sole proprietor, if the premiums are paid from after tax dollars, the death benefit is paid out
Doreen Smith on a tax free basis to the named beneficiaries. Small companies are often dependent on the expertise of a few top people. If one of these individuals passes away, how will he or she be replaced? How long will this take? What happens if a business owner dies and has not prepared a will?
It can take years for the remaining business owners and the deceased’s family to come to an agreement. Legal fees can eat up a substantial amount of the business profit. The deceased’s family may realize their wealth is still in the business, with no immediate income and they have other financial concerns to consider. The deceased’s family needs money as their income earner has passed away, and the business partner needs money to replace the deceased partner. Mom and Pop businesses may worry about taxes due on the sale of
their business; other families want to leave an equal legacy for each of their children. One child who has spent his or her lifetime involved in the business will inherit the business with valuable equity, and the parents also want to leave a legacy to their other children. The most affordable option to consider is life insurance. Planning for the loss of a business owner or partner is crucial for a business to continue as intended, and to protect the financial security of the families of each partner or co-owner. Using life insurance
in business succession is the most affordable way to protect against the catastrophic loss of losing a business owner. The structure of the buy/sell life insurance should be specific to the objective of the business owners. It takes approximately 30 days for a life insurance policy to pay out the lump sum chosen. It provides very affordable piece of mind. Doreen Smith is a Certified Financial Planner and insurance advisor with Capri Wealth Management Inc. 250-869-3825 firstname.lastname@example.org
Councillors looking for politics with benefits Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER
Kelowna’s local politicians didn’t express much appetite for a personal pay hike when the topic of a wages and expenses review came up during Monday’s council meeting, but some did say they think public office should come with benefits. “Short of being impeached we are here for three years and I think a benefit package should be made available,” said Coun. Charlie Hodge, as city councillors debated creating a task force to look at the issue.
Andre Blanleil The task force, and related review, usually comes up during the last year of a term, so any changes in pay can be accounted for by the time the next round of politicians are elected.
Currently councillors make $30,765 and the mayor takes in $87,902, which city staff say is on par with municipalities of like size. Benefits haven’t been included in their wages historically, as public office isn’t considered a full-time job. One-third of their wages are, however, taxfree, said Coun. Andre Blanleil, who argued those savings could be used to purchase a benefits plan. “We are asking everyone to tighten their belts, and we are asking them to be frugal, and this isn’t a good time,” he said, add-
ing he’d like the status quo to be maintained, and that a review was unnecessary. “I don’t see that this is a time to look at any increase of (wages) or benefits.” To that Coun. Robert Hobson said the simple practice of having an outside body examine the issue is something he holds up to other municipalities as the most ideal way to address political pay issues. “I think it’s best to be proactive and review every three years,” he said, pointing out a review doesn’t necessarily mean a wage hike. “When
we looked at the regional district, we had a change downward…I think our practice is a good one, but the important thing is the regularity in which you address the issue.” Weighing in on the benefits issue specifically, Hobson and Coun. Graeme James said they agreed it’s an issue that should be examined . The panel that reviews politicians’ wages consists of three appointees. Mayor Sharon Shepherd said there will be a call to the public to see if there is anyone who would like to sit on the task force. email@example.com

W LIBERAL LEADERSHIP RACE
Falcon favours reducing the HST, not eliminating it Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR
Liberal leadership hopeful Kevin Falcon likes the HST but wants to see its rate dropped to 10 per cent from 12 per cent. Falcon, who stopped in Kelowna Monday to talk to Liberal Party members, told reporters it would be “irresponsible” for the government to voluntarily axe the tax because he believes it is good for the province. But he does want to see an immediate reduction of the 12 per cent rate to 11 per cent and a fur-
Kevin Falcon ther one per cent reduction as soon as the economy allows for it. Saying he is open to holding the referendum on the HST’s future earlier than September, the for-
mer health minister said he wants to make sure the public has more information about the tax before voting on it. Information, he said, was something the government did not provide prior to introducing the controversial tax last year. Like all the other Liberals running to replace Premier Gordon Campbell, Falcon now says the government did a woeful job of introducing the tax, something most in his party denied before the anti-HST group FightHST forced a referendum on the tax through the prov-
ince’s initiative law. But while Falcon said he would consider pushing the date of the HST referendum forward, unlike his main challenger former cabinet colleague-turned-radio talk show host Christy Clark, he does not think the next provincial election should be held any earlier than the scheduled May 14, 2013 date. He said one of the reasons is that there are dozens of other MLAs who want a say in any decision to hold the election and they need to be heard. “It’s can’t be seen as
one person making the decision,” he said. Falcon, considered a front runner in the race to succeed outgoing Premier Gordon Campbell, also “respectfully” disagreed with Shuswap MLA George Abbott, another leadership hopeful, who recently said he believes he, not Falcon, is running second behind Clark in the race. Falcon said he has the numbers to prove Abbott is wrong and offered them to reporters who came to his campaign office, but only on condition they not report the numbers.
He said the reason for the secrecy is because he does not want the other candidates to know how successful he has been at signing up new party members. As for the response to his candidacy, the Surrey MLA said he considers himself an underdog. And he likes that role. Using a mixture of technology, such as the Internet and special mobile phone applications, as well as old-fashioned face-to-face meetings, what he’s hearing from the people he speaks to is that the government needs
to keep its focus on the economy. To that end, he promised to cut even more government red tape—the Liberals claim to have already cut 40 per cent— in a bid to move the B.C. economy along. He also pointed to several transportation projects that were announced or completed under his watch as transportation minister, saying the completion of the William R. Bennett Bridge here was the best day of his political life. firstname.lastname@example.org
Abbott outlines $15 million in agriculture commitments Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER
B.C. Liberal leadership candidate George Abbott promises $15 million in new commitments for agriculture should he be elected premier by fellow Liberal members at the end of February. He said the commitments draw on the recommendations of the agriculture plan completed in 2005, the report of the Ranching Task Force released in 2009 and the work of the Select Stand-
ing Committee on Finance last fall. Abbott’s team of supporters includes former agriculture ministers Steve Thomson and John van Dongen as well as former Parliamentary Secretary for Agricultural Planning Val Roddick, who headed up the task force to gather input and prepare the agriculture plan. Specifically, he commits to funding: • a multi-year agricultural branding and marketing program to increase awareness of B.C. prod-

ucts; • the School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program; • enhanced income support and business expansion programs, in partnership with the federal government through Growing Forward; • expanded farming extension services; • 4-H programs for youth and community agricultural fairs; and • enhancing the Agricultural Land Commission. The Shuswap MLA
said he also commits to ensuring the province fully participates in emergency support programs for farmers through AgriRecovery and he promised to initiate an internal review of the triggering policies for access to those funds to ensure B.C. programs remain competitive with those of other provinces. For the cattle ranching sector, he said he would provide annual funding toward a permanent predator control program to

How to maintain your New Year’s resolution commitments
he New Year’s holiday dust has finally settled, the cupboards are empty of all those extra sweet treats, all the guests have gone home and we’ve returned to daily routines. This week you may have a nagging memory of some New Year’s resolutions you made for 2011. Whether you have begun in your efforts to keep your resolutions or you already feel hopelessly off track, I have a few tips today that may help you in your quest for success. First of all, be sure to set realistic goals. You are not going to be able to completely transform your personality or appearance simply by willpower. While there are many things we can change, there are also some aspects of ourselves we have to learn to live with. Be honest with yourself about your goal’s achievability. Break your goal into manageable parts and make a timeline for completing them. For example, a couple of very common resolutions are to lose weight or kick a bad habit like
Paul Latimer smoking. These are both very good goals and are achievable, but if you start by saying you want to lose 50 pounds or quit smoking completely when you currently smoke two packs a day, you might be setting yourself up for disappointment. Make yourself a goal of losing five pounds a month or an average of a pound or two each week over the course of the year. This is a lot less daunting to think of and still results in a large amount of weight lost during the year. Cut down your smoking gradually and then quit completely and you will be more likely to succeed. In some cases it is a good idea to take a complete break from a particular behaviour at least for a little while. If you are not an al-

coholic but would like to cut down on your drinking, it might be helpful to abstain completely for a month before attempting moderate drinking. This period of abstinence from the behaviour can help to break the automatic nature of a habit. Also, if you are unable to abstain for one month, achieving successful moderation may not be realistic. Make your plan specific and write it down.
What steps are you going to take to successfully lose that pound a week? If it’s going to the gym or modifying your diet, make a specific schedule and plan around it. Include timelines and motivational reminders to keep you focused on your goal. Reward yourself. When you reach small milestones along the way, be sure to reward your progress somehow.
On a cautionary note, though, make sure your reward doesn’t sabotage your efforts— i.e. if you’ve been losing weight, don’t reward yourself with a whole bag of cookies. If you fall off the wagon or don’t meet one of your specific goals, don’t use that as an excuse to give up altogether. Setbacks are a part of life—it is how we deal with them that determines our eventual success.
Finally, be sure to enlist some support. A spouse or trusted friend can be very helpful to keep you accountable in your goal as well as to encourage you along the way or bolster you when you feel like giving up. On the other hand, friends who persist in a behaviour or lifestyle you are trying to change can have a negative effect on your progress. Whether conscious of it or not, we tend to
imitate those we spend time with. It is wise to surround yourself with friends who can also be role models. I wish you great success this year as you strive to fulfill your New Year’s resolutions. Don’t give up! Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials. 250-862-8141 firstname.lastname@example.org

If you asked most ski racers what the best amount of edge grip is, I bet the fast ones would say, “The least amount for the given situation.” That’s because using excessive edge in all situations is like hammering on the brakes, not enough edge will also really slow you down. So what’s the right amount? Well, that depends on a few factors. Some of these, in no particular order, are; snow conditions, terrain, speed, the shape of turn you want to make and the direction that you want to go. I like to think of edging in three approaches, with the first one being steered. I use a steered turn on moderate slopes when I want to maintain and control my speed. A steered turn usually ends up with a fairly round turn shape with a good amount of edge grip but not so much grip that you feel like you’re really slowing down. This is a good blue run tactic, it helps you stay in control but lets you go faster or slower as you dictate. To make this happen I think of guiding the tail of the ski through where the tip has been so that it stays on somewhat of a similar path. The next approach is skidded; you might be wondering what you’d ever want to skid for? If you think about it you’d be surprised how much you actually do this, sliding into the lift line for example, you’d normally get the skis sideways to dump off some speed so that you can ease up to the lift. That’s one instance. Here’s a couple more, a skidded turn is useful in steep situations where speed control is a must. Just like when you’re approaching the lift at the end of a run getting your skis sideways in the steeps helps you stay balanced as well as control your decent. A skidded turn will also help get you out of a tight spot when you really need it, have you ever needed to slide down a steep bit of terrain to see what’s over the next ledge? I know I have. The last application is carved; this one is probably my favourite. I love the feeling of carving big long arcs on easy to moderate terrain, it great to feel the ski flex and load up with energy. It’s that edge grip that allows you to do that. To feel this use the side cut of the ski, tip your skis over and enjoy the ride! So, the next time you’re out for a slide maybe try and think of how your approaching the situation you’re in with regards to how you’re using your edges. What’s the best approach? Does it call for a steered, skidded or carved turn? If you’re not sure, then stop by the Big White Ski & Board School sales desk in the Village Centre Mall and spend some time with one of our pros!
was lucky to be born in the sunny Okanagan and even luckier to be born into the gardening business. My grandfather, Arthur Burnett, moved his family to Kelowna in 1922, purchased a few acres of property which was dwarfed by the section of land he left behind in Weyburn, Sask., and was delighted with the productivity he was able to get from his little piece of Eden. At first, mostly field crops of tomatoes, onions and corn were produced for the local and export market but in 1932, with my dad’s help, the family business built its first greenhouse—the beginning of a long and successful venture in the

Don Burnett greenhouse, nursery, floral and landscape industries until it closed in 1997. The Burnett name lives on with the flower shop on Bernard Avenue. When I was born in 1950, there were only about 10,000 people living in Kelowna and perhaps another 5,000 or so in the surrounding area. The fruit industry was a major part of life here and there were many busy packinghouses shipping
fruit all over the world. In the summer, tourism was, as it is today, very strong with families coming from all over Western Canada and beyond to lap up our famous sunshine and gorge on our delicious fruit. In 1949, with the new Hope Princeton Highway cutting the 12-hour trip from the coast to an easy day’s drive of about eight hours, our population began to grow. It doubled by 1962 when the Rogers Pass Highway to Alberta was built. Now you could drive to the Okanagan from Calgary in just hours and the Albertans did just that. That was the beginning of the population explosion we are still expe-

riencing today in the Okanagan. Since my first contact with the lawn and garden industry, there have been many changes. Gone are the days when bedding plants were cut out of flats to be wrapped in newspaper for the customer and the term bare root is hardly ever heard now with most plants sold in containers. I find the gardening public is far more knowledgeable today and their needs include better service, quality and selection. There is a gradual leaning toward gardening organically and we in the industry are helping our customers understand the principles our forefathers
followed prior to the age of chemicals. There have been many changes in the fruit industry as well. Agri-tourism, the melding of the orchard industry with the tourism industry, is now the norm with many orchards offering tours and even a world class golf course operating in a working apple orchard. The huge growth, however, has been in the grape and wine industry. From its humble beginnings in the 1930s to the thousands of acres and dozens of small to large wineries up and down the valley, the Okanagan has become renowned for its ability to produce fine wine and table grapes. ••• Just to give the landscapers and others in the industry the headsup, there is a horticultural certificate program being offered at Okanagan College starting Jan. 25.

Drunk fast food patron sought quick bathroom exit An apparently drunk woman caught climbing in the ceiling of a local fast food joint may be facing some time in the joint for her alleged actions Sunday morning. Around 10 a.m. on Sunday, an employee at the Lakeshore Road McDonaldâ€™s knocked on the bathroom door after it seemed like a woman had been in the washroom for a long time. The employee didnâ€™t get an answer to that knock, but a short time later, employees at the restaurant spotted a woman climbing in the supportâ€™s of the buildingâ€™s suspended ceiling after she knocked down some ceiling tiles and nearly fell out. Restaurant staff helped the woman down from the ceiling and kept her until police arrived. â€œThe woman smelled

of liquor and appeared intoxicated,â€? said Const. Steve Holmes.
â€œShe was arrested for being drunk in a public place and was held until
she was sober.â€? The 22-year-old woman is facing a recommend-
ed charge of mischief for damaging the restaurant ceiling and has been re-
leased on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

he winter is upon us, we are all facing diseases such as flu and head cold. Did you know you that dogs can also catch a cold? A cold for a dog is called infectious tracheobrinchitis, or more commonly referred to as ‘kennel cough.’ This disease is an inflammation of the respiratory system, including the nose, the trachea (wind pipe) and the bronchi (the branches of the wind pipe in the lungs). It is caused by a complex of viruses and bacteria with a dominance of bacteria by the name of bordetella bronchoseptica. This infection is typical to dogs only. People cannot get the infection from dogs nor do cats. The disease is highly contagious. The transmission of the infection is aerosal. This means that the causative agents are found in the air and dogs do not have to be in contact in order to get infected. The disease is very common to be found in
Moshe Oz places with large numbers of dogs such as animal shelters, boarding facilities or even puppy training classes. The most common symptom of the disease is a dry hacking cough followed by motions that resemble vomiting and production of a white, foamy discharge. Runny nose and eye infections are also commonly seen. The disease is typically self limiting in a healthy dog, but might get complicated in puppies, older dogs or a dog suffering from other diseases that have weakened its immune system. If the disease complicates it might lead to pneumonia and other severe illnesses. The disease is diagnosed by a physical exam.
The veterinarian will also ask you questions about the history of the dog, trying to gather information that might support the exposure to the causative agents of the disease. Depending on the dog’s condition, the vet might recommend further tests such as blood tests or chest x-rays to assess the severity of the dog’s condition. Depending on the medical findings, the dog can be treated by drugs such as antibiotics and cough suppressants. Fortunately there are vaccines available against kennel cough. The vaccines that are given to puppies, which later are given annually to adult dogs, contain coverage against the viruses responsible for the disease. There is a separate vaccine against the bacteria bordetella bronchoseptica. This vaccine is given topically straight into the nose. Vaccination cannot totally prevent development of disease but it will reduce the severity of clini-

cal signs to a much more manageable level. The vaccine is recommended to any dog but especially to a dog that might be in greater risk of encountering the disease, such as prior to boarding, grooming or training classes. Some of the boarding facilities will not admit unvaccinated dogs to their premises. If your dog is sick, I strongly recommend isolating him from other dogs until the disease has resolved. It’s probably best to socialize your dog with other dogs in well ventilated places, best at the outdoors to try to avoid catching the disease.

When Nancy McKinstry got the phone call from her doctor five years ago with the diagnosis of ovarian cancer, she and her husband immediately started researching. â€œWhatever it took, we wanted to get the best possible treatment to ensure I survived,â€? recalled McKinstry. â€œWe were prepared to go anywhere. Then we found out that we had the best possible outcomes available to us in B.C., in our own backyard. So here I am, five years later.â€? Now a major international study published in the British medical journal The Lancet confirms that we do in fact have a better chance of surviving cancer here in B.C. than anywhere else in the world. Researchers tracked 2.4 million cancer patients in Australia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the UK and Canada, from

1995 to 2007. They looked at those with breast, lung and colorectal cancers, which are relatively common, and at ovarian cancer, because of its complexity. They found that B.C. had the best one- and fiveyear survival rates for both ovarian cancer (77.6 per cent and 55.8 per cent) and for breast cancer (89.1 per cent). Whatâ€™s more, B.C. survival rates improved over the study period, by nine per cent for ovarian and by seven per cent for breast cancer. B.C. Cancer Agency medical oncologist Dr. Stephen Chia said, â€œEven a one to two per cent gain in survival rates has a significant impact on society. A seven per cent improvement is really dramatic and encouraging.â€? Surgical oncologist Dr. Dianne Miller, chair of the Agencyâ€™s provincial gynecology tumour group, added, â€œOvarian cancer is difficult to diagnose and treat, so this leap in our survival rates is

between researchers and doctors. â€œThe link between research and care means new discoveries can be brought quickly to the patientâ€™s bedside,â€? Levy said. â€œLikewise, doctors bring problems from the bedside back to the researchers. â€œBy working closely together, we continuously improve patient outcomes and extend lives.â€? Levy added that B.C. already has the lowest incidence and mortality rates for all cancers across Canada. â€œNow we know how well we are doing compared to the rest of the world,â€? he said. This study underscores the unique strength of the B.C. Cancer Agencyâ€™s long-term, comprehensive cancer registry and its gold-standard quality of care, which is available to all British Columbians at its five regional cancer centres and affiliated treatment facilities. Better outcomes can only come from improvements to care, which come from new evidence gained through research. The thousands of donors who support cancer research through the BC Cancer Foundation are key partners in this equation. Their philanthropy has fuelled the discoveries that continue to benefit B.C. cancer patients and their families. The outcomes show this is so. The BC Cancer Foundation (www.bccancerfoundation.com) is the fundraising partner of the B.C. Cancer Agency and the largest charitable funder of cancer research in B.C. As an independent charitable organization, we raise funds exclusively for the B.C. Cancer Agency that support innovative cancer research and compassionate enhancements to patient care. The BC Cancer Agency (www.bccancer.bc.ca), an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority, provides a comprehensive cancer control program for the people of B.C. and Yukon, including prevention, screening and early detection programs, research and education, and care and treatment.

Big White aids Aussie flood relief campaign In support of its friends Down Under, Big White Ski Resort will host a special fundraiser to assist those affected by the floods in Australia. This Saturday, the resort will set aside all the proceeds from its night time ski lift packages and rentals to put towards the Queensland Premier’s Relief Appeal. Lift packages are priced at $25 for a family of four with rental equipment available for an additional $10 per person. Flash flooding has devastated Eastern Australia, affecting 200,000 people to date and caused an estimated $10 billion in damages thus far. The flooding is expected to continue ravaging the country and au-
thorities say that reconstruction will take years. Big White Ski Resort is set to take part in the aid. In addition to the fundraiser on Jan. 22, the resort will gladly accept donations at the Big White Activities Desk in person, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 250-491-6111. Big White Ski Resort is no stranger to Aussies. The Schumann Family is from Australia and have owned and operated the resort since 1985. The resort’s Australian connection has also led to a strong Australian presence among the staff and the many guests who visit the resort. “All of us working at Big White feel deeply tied to Australia in one way or
THE BIG WHITE SKI RESORT has embraced a fundraising event for Saturday to assist people affected by the floods in Australia, a country where many of Big White’s seasonal staff come from, as well as visiting tourists. another. Working and living where we do, we all appreciate the immense power of Mother Nature,” said Michael Ballingall, senior vice-president of Big White Ski Resort.
“The flooding in Queensland has been catastrophic and has touched all of us. “The fundraiser on January 22 is just one way that we want to try and
help our friends in need,” he added. The Queensland Premier’s Relief Appeal has been set up by the Queensland government to collect funds for relief assis-
tance. The premier has announced the establishment of a distribution committee, a committee including representatives from the Australian Red Cross, to
manage the disbursement of the donated funds. For more information about the Queensland Premier’s Relief Appeal, visit the website, www.qld. gov.au.
W WRONGFUL DISMISSAL
Properly implemented employment contracts save money
anuary is a great time of year for employers to focus on the basics of the employment relationship. A cornerstone of that relationship is a properly implemented, written employment contract. One of the key rules about employment contracts is that (to use the legal term) there must be “consideration” flowing to the employee in exchange for accepting the employer’s terms. This consideration must exist in order for the employment contract to be binding on the employee. Typically, the consideration flowing to a new employee is the offer of employment itself. Timing is one crucial aspect of the exchange of consideration. If the employment has already commenced when the employer seeks to have the employee enter into a written employment contract, there is no new consideration flowing to the employee.
As such, it is crucial that employers routinely have new employees enter into written employment contracts prior to the comRobert mencement of the Smithson employment. The principle that employment contracts must be signed before the employment commences was demonstrated a few years back in a decision of the B.C. Supreme Court. The case involved a claim for wrongful dismissal by an employee who had been terminated after 16 years of employment. The employer sought to rely upon a severance (pay in lieu of notice) clause contained in an employment contract signed just days after the employment had commenced. If the severance clause in the written contract had been enforceable, the employer would only have had to provide the employee with six months’
YOU WORK HERE
pay in lieu of notice. If the severance clause wasn’t enforceable, the (usually) greater common law standard of reasonable pay in lieu of notice would have applied. The court reviewed the circumstances of the employee’s hiring, 16 years earlier, and of the signing of the employment contract. Of significance was the court’s conclusion that the written employment contract contained provisions which were detrimental to the employee (relating to termination, intellectual property rights, and restrictions on competition) and which had not been discussed before the employment commenced. The court considered whether or not any new consideration had been provided to the employee for signing the written contract after the commencement of the employment. It concluded there had been none. The court struck down the written employment contract and imposed the common law standard of pay in lieu of notice. The employee was
given 13 months’ pay in lieu of notice (an additional seven months’ pay over what had been provided in the written contract). What lesson should employers take from decisions such as this? That there is a correct way to implement written employment contracts in relation to new employees and this must be followed if contracts are to be binding on the employee. The contract must be delivered to the candidate prior to the date on which she is to commence employment. An accompanying cover letter should state simply that the individual is being offered employment on the terms and conditions set out in the contract and that she can signify acceptance of those terms by returning the signed and witnessed contract. The cover letter enclosing the contract should not contain any offers or suggestions of additional, or different, terms than those set out in the contract. Any other documents referred to
in the body of the contract (such as, for instance, a job description, policy manual, or benefits summary booklet) should be attached to, or included with, the contract when it is delivered to the employee. The candidate should initial each attachment to indicate his receipt of that item at the same time as the contract. Most importantly, the contract must be accepted, by way of the candidate signing and returning the document, prior to the commencement of provision of employment services. Following these simple rules will ensure the enforceability of written employment contracts for new employees. And, they will save your business a lot of money.

Reacting to a career in crisis I
n my professional practice, I have noticed an interesting trend emerging over the last year or so. I am getting more requests for career coaching from employed, professional people who appear to be quite successful but express deep discontent with their work lives. After 20 to 25 years of employment they are experiencing what I call a “mid-career crisis” which often manifests as a lack of satisfaction or meaning in their work, regardless of the financial rewards. By the time people come to me, they are seriously ready to make a change. That suggests that they have likely been disengaged for quite a while, which isn’t good for them or for their employer. If you find yourself saying, “I need to change tmy job.” I would ask:
Laurie Mills “What do you need to change about it?” The intention is not to be flippant, of course, but rather to pinpoint what is driving your need to take action at this particular point in time. In trying to make sense of the choices that have created a seemingly successful career, it is common to start by challenging how success has been defined. Traditionally it has meant an important job title, a hefty salary or even the cliché of getting a corner office (or at least one with a window and a view).
There is also the perception that career success means advancing to more senior management positions. Not everyone is cut out to be the “boss” or the “boss’s boss” and there aren’t enough of those positions to go around anyway. It is encouraging to see people resisting those conventional measures of career success and instead re-directing their efforts towards finding work they enjoy. That can mean a simpler job that is interesting and challenging, one with enough income to support a reasonable standard of living, and something that feels worthwhile. We spend so much of our lives at work that we all deserve the best fit possible. Finding that fit requires thoughtful planning and diligent effort. Be forewarned; the

process of re-envisioning your career can be unsettling, even downright scary. It can also be liberating by leading you closer to your natural talents and a workplace that truly values those. Don’t wait until you are at a breaking point to check on how well your work life is serving your personal values and goals. Recharging a stale or stalled career can refresh your whole outlook on life. Laurie Mills is a certified coach and human resource professional.

he reasons are many for pursuing the entrepreneurial journey, all of them honourable and admirable, but I’m also mindful of the cloak of uncertainty that enshrouds my thought when I embrace such discussions about those reasons. I feel so compelled at times to stand on my soapbox and ask these wonderful people who are sharing their dreams, “Are you really ready for entrepreneurship?” Some harsh realities about life when entertaining the thought of becoming entrepreneurial that never leaves my thought process is that the only way to not be criticized is to do nothing. To say nothing. And to be nothing. A lesson new entrepreneurs often find difficult to talk about is this: No matter what you do or how well you do it, there will always be people who will criticize, who do not like you or the way you conduct your venture or, ironically, don’t like your product or service idea. That is a truth of entrepreneurship that all of us in the entrepreneurial world must accept and embrace. I love entrepreneurs. They are the folks who make our society great, who will correct what is wrong and make good things even better. To anyone giving their blood, sweat and tears to a perceived opportunity, to anyone rocking the boat to do something many would train out of us, to the people who will shake
Joel Young up the norm and give us new possibilities, those people have my utmost respect and appreciation. Let’s take a look at your readiness to become a budding entrepreneur. Every year, thousands of people make the transition from employee, student, housewife, immigrant, retired, disabled to become an entrepreneur. While many succeed, others fail. Many of those who fail do so simply because they weren’t ready to make the change and take up the challenge. Quitting a full-time job or career position to launch an entrepreneurial venture isn’t something to be taken lightly by anyone. How do you know if the entrepreneurial life is for you? But even if self-assessment tests indicate you’ve got the right personality for entrepreneurial success, that still doesn’t mean you’re ready to become one at a given point in time. Do I have enough money? Is my family ready for the change? Does the market need a service or product such as I am embracing as my opportunity entry? If the answers are a resounding yes to those questions, you may well be on your way to becoming an entrepreneurial venture owner.
Most successful entrepreneurs recall a sense of urgency that prompted them to begin their journey beyond a desire to a necessity. Many say they knew when the time was right for them to begin and others say that getting fired, laid off or passed over for promotion fueled their entrepreneurial fire. The literature tells us that a fundamental need to control one’s own destiny ranks very high on most entrepreneurs’ lists for launching an entrepreneurial dram venture. Often this “need” resonates so strongly that entrepreneurs will risk family, future and careers to become their own boss. Translating into being unable to feel truly fulfilled working for someone else, these individuals can’t be happy taking orders in any fashion from someone higher in the pecking order. One tip to help determine your readiness is on the money side—are you are able to raise significant amounts of money from investors? I am confronted with this issue every other day as I function as an investment/finance broker and work to assist the good folk of Western Canada to find investment/finance funds for their dreams. If you can make other people believe in your dream to the point where they will provide cash to help make it happen, chances are you will have what it takes to be successful. Your reality check will be once you’ve made the decision to break away,

there are always a number of things you ought to do before taking the big step. You do need to conduct thorough market research, acquire enough cash in a well-crafted plan and discuss the decision with your family and loved ones. Then, recognize the rewards of entrepreneurial pursuit are not instantaneous. You better be ready to defer gratification and make substantial sacrifices to ensure your rewards eventually come your way. But please understand this—it is a rarity that one person has all the qualities needed to be successful in venture creation. Everyone has strong and weak points in their makeup, but what is important is to recognize, acknowledge and understand those strengths and weaknesses and do something positively constructive about them. I would like to leave you this week with, I hope, an inspiring quote from a man of our North American history books that I pray will find its way embedded in your soul whilst you explore your readiness: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how a strong man stumbles, or where a doer of deeds could have actually done them better. “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again. “Because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who is at the best, knows in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” I hope these words of another inspire you, dear readers, to become the best that you can be —and help identify if you are ready to embrace entrepreneurship.

Stellar writers here thanks to UBCO’s visiting authors series Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER
When UBCO’s visiting authors committee assembled their wish list and started the paperwork, landing this year’s Man Booker Prize winner wasn’t even on the radar. Members, like professor Nancy Holmes and assistant professor Michael V. Smith knew they loved Irish author Emma Donoghue’s work, and that she lives with her family in Canada, but she hadn’t yet sealed her status among the dozen must-meet authors of the year. “We didn’t know The Room would become such a hit,” said Holmes. “We all just really liked Emma Donoghue.” One year later, as she heads to UBCO for a highly anticipated en-
gagement next month, Donoghue is one of the biggest authors on the literary scene. She was the youngest person nominated for the Man Booker in 2010, which eventually went to Howard Jacobson for The Finkler Question. Her latest novel has, nonetheless, achieved universal acclaim. The Room is written from the perspective of a five-year-old boy who has never seen the world outside his household confines. With a touch of horror, terror and philosophical overtones, it’s both impossible to pin down or put down for readers and critics alike. “My main concern was to avoid the True Crime genre,” Donoghue told The Economist in an interview which describes the novel’s key idea as

The result is a work of art that leaves one wondering how one person’s imagination could conjure such a tale. Thankfully, lo-
cal fans won’t have to wait long to ask. Donoghue is scheduled to five a free public reading as part of UBCO’s Visiting Authors Series, 7 p.m., Feb. 3, at the Okanagan Regional
Library, 1380 Ellis St. “I think we all genuinely want to contribute to the artistic life in the community and we feel we can do it this way,” said Holmes.

Donoghue is not the only big name UBCO has landed this season. This year’s writer in residence is Annabel Lyon, who will spend March 6 to 20 at the school. Lyon’s latest book, The Golden Mean, was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award in 2009, and won the 2009 Rogers Writers Trust Award. UBCO’s Writer in Residence program is an incredible opportunity for the community, as well as the school, as each author offers sessions where local writers can have their work read and critiqued. “People just love it. They get an intimate oneon-one meeting and she’s already read their work,” said Holmes. Information on Lyon’s
activities and how to book a session is on UBCO’s website under Creative and Critical Studies. Writers can contact email@example.com to submit their work by Jan. 31; only 16 will be selected for a critique. Lyon will teach a workshop on March 12. Enrol by contacting Continuing Studies at 250807-9289. And she will give a free public reading at the Okanagan Regional Library, 7 p.m., March 10.

Jayhawks albums well worth dusting off THE JAYHAWKS: HOLLYWOOD TOWN HALL (AMERICAN)
There has been a rekindled interest in the altcountry and roots rock of Minnesota’s finest, The Jayhawks. The main songwriting duo of Gary Louris and Mark Olson have even recently been performing music live on late night talk shows to promote their newly re-released legacy albums. Hollywood Town Hall was released in 1992 to huge praise and ended up on most rock critics’ best of albums at that year’s end. The Jayhawks wrote and performed superb songs albeit usually, with understated and laidback grooves and honeyed vocal harmonies with be-
Bruce Mitchell guiling lyrics. Unfortunately, despite the critical hosannas, The Jayhawks never sold well and Hollywood Town Hall didn’t even crack the top 100 on sales charts even though the wonderful single Waiting For The Sun was a minor hit. Old fans will be delighted to know that this re-issue legacy edition has five previously unreleased songs highlighted by the early REM-like rocker Leave No Gold and the
Top Sales and Rentals
humorous pure countrypop song Keith & Quinten. Maybe an audience will finally catch up with The Jayhawks’ timeless amalgam of country, rock, folk and pop. B+
THE JAYHAWKS: TOMORROW THE GREEN GRASS (AMERICAN)
Tomorrow The Green Grass is generally acknowledged as the best of The Jayhawks’ albums although I have always been partial to Hollywood Town Hall. Tomorrow The Green Grass, released in 1995, fared only a little better than its predecessor by hitting the top 100 in sales but it stalled at the lowly No. 92 spot with not even a minor hit. Still, the critics loved it and the album’s musical worth just seemed to grow to near mythical portions until this two-CD set re-reissue.
TTGG added a fine keyboard player in Karen Grotberg and their music evolved to a few eclectic genres while Hollywood Town Hall was an eventempered album where the songs just seemed to blend into one another. This CD has 18 demo tracks of songs that were being worked up for TTGG while several were never fleshed out into full band songs. But the original TTGG was a joy full of great songs from the edgier Neil Younglike guitar rocker Miss Williams’ Guitar, to the Byrds-like ballad Two Hearts and The Band-like rootsy Red’s Song. Again, for big fans this is a treasure trove with all the new material and a liner booklet loaded with info and notes. B+
THE SCRIPT: SCIENCE & FAITH (EPIC)
This is the second al-
bum from Dublin’s The Script, on the heels of their debut which was a smash hit in the U.K. and spawned five hits. This new album is expected to break the band in North America. The group comes out of the ashes of a failed boy band Mytown but the band’s newfound success was so large that hometown boys U2, as well as Paul McCartney, had The Script open for them on several shows. The Script call their music Celtic soul but what I mostly hear is U2styled anthemia pop with a slick production style that aims for maximum rock radio exposure. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing but I found the lads’ music somewhat samey, too calculated and uninspiring and I can’t recommend repeated listens. Cbwcmitchell@shaw.ca

Soundtrack to a dream sequence Awesome from A27 al guests such as Murray Lightburn from The Dears, Angela Desveaux, Elephant Stone, Krista Muir, Evan Cranley from Stars and Broken Social Scene, Liam O’Neil from The Stills and many more. Does the name Jon Cohen ring a bell for some reason? Probably because he’s also been a key member of some notable alternative Canadian groups such as The Dears and Social Register. The Jon Cohen Experimental started up in 2006 and was Cohen’s response to more than a decade of service to the prolific Montreal music scene. The group has toured all over the Maritimes, Quebec and Ontario, making appearances at numerous festivals including Pop Montreal and NXNE to a variety of different audiences. Cohen now brings his solo sound out West to give us a taste of his new album which was in the works for three year— a touch long for industry standards but the new album is genuinely crafted and full of fine-tuned songwriting making the wait worthwhile. Cohen’s lyrical content makes poetic commentary on human nature’s destructive habits and its potential for greatness, all the while touching on modern life, spirituality and the human condition. He proves his insightful and thoughtprovoking nature through
songs such as Hold the Fire and Brain Pollution. My favourite song, hands down, is Don’t Be the Cloud. A soft, dreamlike ballad somewhat reminiscent of The Flaming Lips, this song is one that is definitely on my current top 10 playlist. Lyrics like “You’re not the island if you long to see the shore. You’re not the storm, if you’ve not yet learned to pour. You’re not enough when all you want is wanting more” provide this song as an inflection into finding out one’s true self. So, yes, I said that his music would be a great accompaniment to a summer’s eve or a Sunday drive, but Behold’s lyrics could also provide the flowing soundtrack to a time of self-meditation or heavy pondering, if that’s what you’re into. The Jon Cohen Experimental will be stopping by the Minstrel Café and Bar (4638 Lakeshore Rd.) on Jan. 26 and I would highly recommend enjoying his performance over something from the Café’s delicious menu and a bottle of vino (perhaps the perfect accompaniment for anything really). Cohen plays at 8 p.m. and a $5 entertainment charge per person will be added to your bill at the end of the night.

Warriors secure McColgan in T.O. for top prospects game scholarships W CHANCE AT BRIGHT LIGHTS
Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER
As far back as his first game in a Kelowna Rockets uniform three years ago, Shane McColgan had a definite goal for his hockey future: To be a first-round pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft. The speedy 5-foot-9 centre will have a chance to make his case under the bright lights Wednesday night in Toronto at the Canadian Hockey Leagueâ€™s Top Prospects Game. Listed 102nd among eligible skaters in Central Scoutingâ€™s most recent rankings, McColgan is, at the moment, well out of the range of the top 30 choices. But with different NHL teams expressing different needs, predicting where players will actually fall could prove to be an inexact science. McColgan plans to leave to leave nothing to chance at the Air Canada Centre as 40 of junior hockeyâ€™s top prospects audition their skills. â€œIâ€™m going to go in like itâ€™s a regular season game and play my hardest and try to get my draft stock up. Youâ€™re showcasing yourself here,â€? said
McColgan, who leads the Rockets this season with 44 points. â€œThere is a little bit of pressure just because youâ€™re trying to impress people who could potentially draft you. You try not to think about it too much. Just have fun playing the game and everything will fall into place.â€? While the Top Prospects format features just one game, Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said McColganâ€™s performance on Wednesday could go a long way to determining how high the California native is chosen next June. â€œOver the years, this game has become a real good opportunity for players to showcase themselves to NHL teams ahead of the draft,â€? Huska said. â€œA few years ago, (former Rocket) Blake Comeau had a great showing and he moved himself quite a bit. Shane needs to go in and show good work habits. If he has a good night, he could force some teams to take a more serious look at him.â€? McColgan will play for Team Orr, but Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark will be behind the bench as Bobby Orr is unavailable for the game.
KELOWNA Rockets forward Shane McColgan will play for Team Orr at the CHL Top Prospects Game Wednesday night in Toronto.
ROCKETS HOST COUGARS
While McColgan struts his stuff for NHL scouts, the Rockets will be closing out a four-game home stand Wednesday against the division-rival Prince George Cougars. The B.C. Division race remains as tight as ever with the Giants in first with 49 points, the Cougars in second at 47 and the Rockets (23-20-0-0) just one point back of P.G. in third. â€œ(The Rockets and
Cougars) are separated by one point, so I would expect this to be very much like a playoff game,â€? said Huska. â€œItâ€™s a very hard road for all the teams in the division with everything so tight. We have to be fighting hard every night and make sure weâ€™re competing.â€? Kelowna is coming off a weekend of mixed resultsâ€”an inspired comefrom-behind 5-3 win over the Portland Winterhawks on Friday, followed by a
rather uninspired 5-2 loss to Medicine Hat on Saturday. â€œI liked most everything we did against Portland, the way we were able to come back,â€? Huska added. â€œThe second night I thought we were a bit flat, we need to be more consistent.â€? This weekend, the Rockets play three games in as many nightsâ€”Friday in Seattle, Saturday in Spokane and Sunday in Tri-City.
You can make it an even dozen Westside Warriors players who have secured an NCAA scholarship after a pair of forwards signed with American universities this week. Warriors captain Alex Grieve as well as fellow 20-year-old forward Quinn Gould have both received college commitments. Grieve, a Calgary native, has accepted a scholarship to attend Bentley College for the 2011-12 season while Gould has accepted an NCAA Division I scholarship to attend Merrimack College next season. â€œAs an organization we are very proud of all of our players,â€? said Warriors coach Darren Yopyk in congratulating both Grieve and Gould. â€œOur mandate is to help the young student-athletes develop into not only great hockey players, but more importantly great citizens. We believe that as an organization we continue to do just that.â€? In 45 games played this year Grieve has 22 goals and 58 total points. Heâ€™s 11th in league scoring and leads his team in
three-star voting. Gould is the fourth player on the Warriors current roster to commit to Merrimack and will be joining former teammate Brendan Ellis.
Former Warriors defenceman Justin Schultz is among the finalists for the Hobey Baker award as the NCAAâ€™s top hockey player. In just his second season with the University of Wisconsin, Schultz has 32 points in 26 gamesâ€Ś The Warriors hosted Powell River Tuesday (results unavailable) and will play two straight on the road this weekend as they play in Salmon Arm Friday and in Langley on Saturdayâ€Ś Last weekend the Warriors split a pair of games, beating Salmon Arm 6-1 before falling to Merritt with a score of 6-3.
W SKI CROSS
Serwa tops World Cup standings Kelsey Serwaâ€™s third medal of the ski cross season has vaulted the 21-year-old Kelowna athlete to the top of the FIS World Cup standings. Serwa narrowly missed winning her second gold medal in a four-day span as she settled for second spot Sunday in Les Contamines, France, losing to French
skier Opelie David in a photo finish. â€œI was in fourth the whole way downâ€”I had the best seat in the house,â€? Serwa said of Sundayâ€™s final. â€œI was just waiting for a chance to pass and they all kind of got tangled up.â€? It was just last Wednesday that Serwa raced to victory at a World Cup

event in Alpe dâ€™Huez, France. On Sunday, Serwa and David broke through as Serwa nearly edged the French star at the line. The silver-medal effort moves Serwa to the top of the World Cup standings ahead of Germanyâ€™s Heidi Zacher, who was third in her semi-final Sunday. â€œKelsey got to the final
and had the last pick for the start. She just relaxed and let things play out in front of her,â€? said Eric Archer, head coach of the Canadian ski cross team. â€œShe squeezed through from fourth to second and it was a photo finish. She missed by the length of a hand. It was an exciting final.â€? Serwa opened the
World Cup season with a silver medal in Decemeber at a race in San Candido, Italy. Next up for Serwa and the Canadian team is the X-Games Jan. 27 to 30 in Aspen, Colo. Then itâ€™s off to the World Freestyle Championships Feb. 2 to 5 in Park City, Utah.

W COLLEGIATE VOLLEYBALL
Top-ranked Heat men’s v’ballers stay in first The No. 1 nationally-ranked UBC Okanagan Heat men’s volleyball team solidified its hold on top spot in the BCCAA and gained a measure of payback in the process. On Saturday night in Kelowna, the Heat rolled to a 3-0 (25-14, 25-21, 2518) win over the Fraser Valley Cascades, who had handed UBCO its only defeat of the season back on Oct. 30. With “unfinished business” as motivation, veteran power hitter Nate Speijer was to next to unstoppable and was named
the Heat’s player of the match. “Nate is one of those guys who keeps to himself, but you know when he’s ready to go,” said Heat setter Preston Tucker.“And tonight it was pretty obvious he was ready to go. He’s one of the leaders on this team and we look to him to have big games.” On Friday night, the Heat started slowly, then cruised past Columbia Bible College 3-1 (20-25, 25-22, 25-18, 25-17). Greg Niemantsverdriet was named UBCO’s
Eastside Mario’s player of the match. The Heat have won seven straight matches and top the conference at 9-1. With just four matches to go in the regular season and the provincials to be hosted at UBCO next month, Tucker likes the direction the Heat are headed in. “We’ll continue to get better,” Tucker said. “We want to peak at the right time. Ultimately we want to peak at provincials.” The Heat hit the road this weekend for matches
at Capilano and Douglas College.
The two-time defending national champ UBCO women rebounded from their first loss in 37 matches prior to the first semester break with a weekend sweep on their home court. On Friday, the Heat were pushed by CBC but still prevailed (25-18, 2523, 25-21) as Alex Basso was named player of the match. “It’s hard coming back after Christmas holidays

and not playing for two months,” Basso said. “I think we still have a lot of things to work on.” On Saturday, the Heat turned it up a notch to dispose of the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades 3-0 (25-17, 25-14, 25-20). Setter Caitlyn Nyhus
picked up player of the match honours. “[Saturday] was tenfold better,” said Kaylan Gouldsborough, comparing Saturday’s win to Friday’s sluggish start against the Bearcats. “We were focused more in the team room before the game.”
The Heat (9-1) will travel to the Lower Mainland for matches this weekend against Caplino and Douglas. UBCO wraps up the regular season at home Feb. 4 and 5, then will have two weeks off before hosting provincials Feb. 24 to 26.
W COLLEGIATE BASKETBALL
Heat sweep Bearcats, host Douglas Friday Neither Columbia Bible College squad could offer much resistance as both UBC Okanagan Heat basketball teams opened 2011 with a weekend sweep in BCCAA action. In men’s play Friday in Abbotsford, the Heat rolled the Bearcats 7334. UBCO showed little rust from the Christmas layoff as Alex Roth paced the offense with 20 points. Mack Roth added 12 points. On Saturday night, more of the same as the Heat romped to a 9258 win. Micah Cockrill had 21 points and six rebounds, Connor McCormack scored 12 points, while Dan Briscoe scored 10 and had eight boards as the Heat pushed its season record to 6-3. With veteran guard Iain Con sidelined due to injury, rookie Dan Benson started both games, played a team-high 24 minutes on Friday and another 23 minutes on Saturday. “Dan was able to take advantage of this opportunity and really become comfortable on the court running the team’s offense this weekend,” said Heat coach Darren Semeniuk. “I think he will now have the confidence going forward to know that when he is on the court it is his job to run the offence and be a pest on defence. “I think the solid play of everybody this weekend bodes well for us as we would like to continue to get better as a team.” In women’s action, the Heat took down CBC 9464. Ashley Briker led the way with 26 points in 26 minutes, and added four steals and four assists.
ASHLEY BRIKER (left) and the UBC Okanagan Heat swept a pair of games from Columbia Bible College in BCCAA women’s basketball. Vernon native and Heat veteran Madison Kaneda returned to UBCO for her first game of the season and scored 17 points. The Heat forced 25 turnovers, five on steals by Nicole Duke who also chipped in with 10 points. On Saturday, graduating captain Jenna Kantz buried 26 points as UBCO romped to a 112-39 win. “I wish there was a way for me to keep Jenna around next year as well,” head coach Heather Semeniuk said of Kantz who is fifth all-time in scoring the school’s history. “It sure would have been nice having her veteran presence and ability around next year when
we compete in the Canada West Universities Athletic Conference.” Kaneda had 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists and five steals, while Briker scored 19 as the Heat moved to 6-3 on the season. The Heat will be on their home court this weekend to host Douglas College on Friday and Saturday. The women’s games are at 6 p.m. and 4 p.m., while the men go at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. Following the women’s game Friday, the Heat will raise their 2010 B.C. championship banner to the rafters.

Kelowna’s Kelly Scott will take on Nelson’s Jill Winters and Kristy Lewis of Richmond on Wednesday at the B.C. Scotties women’s curling championship in Cloverdale. The Scott rink, which includes third Jeanna Schraeder, second Sasha Carter and lead Jacquie Armstrong, also played twice on Tuesday but final scores were not available at press time. The Kelowna foursome got off to a quick start at the championship on Monday with a pair of convincing wins. Scott defeated Patti Knezevic of Prince George 7-3 in the afternoon draw, then downed Karla Thompson from Kamloops 7-4 in the evening. The Scott rink is a three-time B.C. women’s champion, a two-time Canadian champ, and the 2007 world champion. The teams play nine round-robin games at provincials, with the top four teams reaching the playoffs. The final will be played Sunday at 2 p.m. with the winner to represent B.C. at the Scotties Tournaments of Hearts national women’s championship Feb. 19 to 27 in Charlottetown, PEI.

Host Knights claim bronze in Cross Zone girls A b’ball tourney After playing nine games in a grueling 10day stretch, the Kelowna Christian Knights still had enough left in the tank to win the bronze medal at their home tournament. KCS finished with a strong fourth quarter to down Valemount 54-46 in the third place game at the Cross Zone girls A basketball tourney on Saturday afternoon. Kelsi Taron and Jessica Marees each scored 12 points as the No. 4-ranked Knights outscored Valemount 14-8 in the final quarter. “Those were two exhausted teams out there, but our girls found a way to finish it off,” said Knights coach Rob Robinson. The 2011 tournament semifinal was a rematch of last year’s B.C. semifinal which saw KCS handle Cedars Christian easily. This time the tables were turned as No. 2 Cedars outscored a fatigued Knights team 20-4 in the fourth quarter for a 64-48 win. Tournament MVP Kayla Gordon led Cedars with 25 points. Cammi Taron scored 13 for KCS, Kelsi Taron
Fernie and St. John’s— but seven of the top eight schools in the B.C. A rankings still managed to make it to Kelowna. The Cross Zone format was instituted this year to bring together the
province’s best teams and evaluate how the various regions stack up against each other. “It’s a brand new concept to see who’s strong in what zone,” said Robinson. “It helps us with wild
card seedings at the end of the year.” Menawhile, on Wednesday night, Kelowna Christian and Immaculata will meet for the first time this season in Okanagan Valley league action.

He then looked down upon this earth, and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest; God’s garden must be so beautiful, he only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain, he knew that you might never get well, upon this earth again. He knew the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, Peace be Thine. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home.” A celebration of life service will be held on January 25, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Valleyview Funeral Home, 165 Valleyview Road, Kelowna BC, with Interment to follow at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery.

MCPHERSON, Robert Donald “Bob” It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Bob McPherson, known as “Big Bob” to his family and many friends. He was born February 11, 1955 in New Westminster and passed away Sunday, January 9, 2011 at his cabin at Headwaters. His family will miss him terribly: his mother Marie, his loving wife Twyla, son Troy (Anne) and new granddaughter Arianna, son Travis and grandson Aiden, (his mother Kate), sister Lana (Reg) Scott, and lots of nieces and nephews. He was sadly predeceased by his father Bob. Bob was a big man who lived a big life and took every ounce of enjoyment that he could. He thrived on adventure and would take anyone along for the ride with him. He was a generous man, always willing to help dig a sled out of a snowbank, rescue a marooned boat or share his last beer. He had a great sense of humor and a joke for every occasion. Bob was a devoted family man; all of the children that came into his life inevitably had way too much fun with “Uncle Bob” as the line between kid and grownup was sometimes a little blurry. A celebration of Bob’s life will be held on Thursday January 20th, 2011 at 1:00 pm at Springﬁeld Funeral Home, 2020 Springﬁeld Road, Kelowna B.C. Family and friends wishing to do so may make a donation to “Kids Care Society - Rock 4 Kids,” c/o CKLZ Power 104 FM, 3805 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna B.C.
