Technology helps thwart counterfeiters Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The latest attempt to thwart counterfeiters will see Canadians flipping through funky polymer bills with frosted windows and flower boxes en route to the checkout counter. Monday morning at the Kelowna RCMP detachment, Farid Salji and Isabelle Jacques, from the Bank of Canada, unveiled the latest bill designs to local retailers, walking shopkeepers and the media through the ins and outs of new security features intended to keep increasingly sophisticated counterfeiters at bay. “We used to issue a note once every 15 years and now it looks like we need to issue a note once every eight years with the way technology advances because it’s cheaper; it’s more easy for individuals to get hold of and they can replicate them,” said Salji. In a peak year—those which fall just before a major change in bills— counterfeit notes can cost Canadians as much as $13 million (2004), although the Bank of Canada has managed to drastically improve the odds by changing the bill designs more often. Down 90 per cent from

that 2004 peak season, the bank representative said there isn’t anyone who is currently counterfeiting Canadian money perfectly, though the fraudulent notes are good enough to pass when people and businesses don’t check their bills. “You need to verify your money just like you need to verify any form of payment. So if you get a Visa or MasterCard you’re verifying identification,” Salji said. The new $100 will be the first note to come out in the polymer series and it has a string of security features including both a clear window and a frosted window with a holograph of a flower and a hidden number inside. “It’s more advanced than any hidden number that’s ever been incorporated into polymer-based substrates,” Salji said, noting polymer money has been around for 20 years. There are 30 countries using polymer money, which is both environmentally friendly as it can be reduced and recycled and lasts longer than the current cotton-based notes.

CLOSE CALL…Family members of the female driver of this Jeep SUV, which rolled twice as it careening off the merge lane for

Boucherie Road traffic heading east on Highway 97, wonder what might have been.

Weather added stress for fruit growers Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Mother Nature’s moody skies aren’t just putting a damper on summer fun, they’re hampering the agricultural industry’s attempts to stride ahead after a couple of tough years. “This time of the year,

we’re looking to the sky and wondering what’s in store—it’s always worrisome,” said Joe Sardinha, president of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association. Sardinha had yet to hear of the impact of Sunday’s hail and rain storms, but he pointed out that the apple crops really don’t need any more trouble this

year. “They’re sizing well because the trees aren’t under stress,” he said. “But we had one day where temperatures reached into the lower 30s, and the apples weren’t conditioned for hot weather, so there was a little sunburning.” Apples, he explained, aren’t acclimatized due

to the heavy cloud cover that’s been over the valley all summer, and that creates the risk. They’re also prone to marking if there’s a heavy storm, Sardinha added. While apple farmers are keeping a weathered eye on everything from sun to hail, cherry farmers are also being vigilant.

Some Mission-area orchardists have brought in helicopters to dry the cherries, following heavy rains while others are waiting patiently for their picking season to open. “Cherries are worth more and more so they’re See Weather A10

Heron sculpture could now land in Nelson West Kelowna artist Jock Hildebrand may have finally found a permanent home for his Heron’s Landing bronze sculpture. Hildebrand said the City of Nelson has expressed an interest in acquiring the sculpture for its community. “Receiving this donated sculpture is in line with the efforts of Nelson’s Cultural Development Commission and its Art in Public Places Policy to develop a visually rich cultural environment,” said Nelson city councilor Donna Macdonald. “While our focus is mainly on local and regional artists, the policy also encourages the participation of national and international artists, such as Mr. Hildebrand. The CDC looks forward to working with the city to find a home for this beautiful heron.” The 25-ft bronze sculpture of an abstract blue heron was commissioned by Calgary developer Michael Lobsinger, of Lake Placid Group of Companies, who is donating it to a community in exchange for a tax receipt. Lobsinger has already offered the piece to various municipalities. The



artist Jock Hildebrand works on his 25-foot high bronze sculpture of a heron. City of Kelowna turned it down, while the District of West Kelowna expressed an interest but has concerns about where to locate it and the cost for the sculpture installation. “I think Heron’s Landing will be a perfect fit for Nelson, which is both a waterfront community and an arts community,” said Lobsinger, who is donating the piece. As for Hildebrand, he said he was grateful that Nelson has stepped up as a potential site for the heron sculpture, and for seeing the artistic message in the scultpture.

Tire recycler grateful for post-fire support Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A week after fire devastated two businesses in an industrial area in Rutland, the owner of Top Grade Tire Recycling is finally coming to grips with what happened and choosing to move forward. “Every time I wake up, I feel

sick, but I just have to keep going in a positive direction,” said Jack Bullock, whose business was severely damaged in a blaze that also hurt Ok Builders and Deacoff Sawmill. “My nature is to draw positive out of the negative.” The cause of the blaze is undetermined, but it’s believed to have started at a neighbouring

business. Then as flames built up there they travelled into the wall of tires he had stacked as a divider between the two businesses and that stoked the blaze even further. His equipment was saved, but there were casualties. “I lost all my stock,” he said, pointing out that there were 1,500 or so tires incinerated. While Bullock has suffered a

setback, he wants to let his customers and the community at large know he’s not stopping. “It’s business in usual,” he said. “They don’t have to worry about the service.” Bullock has been a tire recycler for 20 years and has been getting a deluge of calls from well wishers. “I’m overwhelmed by the support,” he said.

Worthy conclusion to long park campaign Barry Gerding EDITOR

It is more than just a bench for Rutland resident Paul Pierron. Located at the new Gerstmar Park, the bench has a plaque with his name on it. But more than a place to sit, it represents the end of his personal campaign dating back many years to see the property developed into a park, adjacent to the Mission Park Greenway. As his wife Sylvia noted while both sat on the bench, this (bench and plaque) is something that our kids will appreciate. For his part, Pierron was unaware of the commemorative bench and felt honoured at the gesture. “It’s more than I could ever have imagined. It’s quite flattering for me‌ it’s beautiful,â€? Pierron said as he gave the bench his own comfort test. Mayor Sharon Shepherd applauded Pierron’s persistence in campaigning both for the city and regional district to retain the property rather than for other purposes. “I know that Paul has about a 400-page file on


PAUL PIERRON, a champion for many years of the need to create Gerstmar Park, sits with his wife Sylva on a bench that was donated by the City of Kelowna in recognition of those efforts, at the park’s official opening last Friday. this project but now he can shred those files,� said Shepherd. The official opening of Gerstmar Park is the first of seven such park openings that will take place around Kelowna in the coming weeks, the result of the federal, provincial and civic governments each contributing $1,047,000 to the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund to create more community

parks and open space. The regional district also contributed $30,000 to the Gerstmar Park project. Three new parks in the Wilden subdivision will be officially unveiled on July 28, as will the Powerline Park in South Mission, Mugford Park in Rutland and Brookdale Park at Black Mountain. Gerstmar Park includes a playground, grass

area, paved trails, tennis court and washroom facilities. Shepherd described creating new parks as “small p� in the realm of civic politics, but that it’s a vital aspect of creating a positive community and neighbourhood familyfriendly lifestyle. “We are open to doing that whenever we can in this city,� Shepherd added.

She also complimented the efforts of community groups, civic politicians and both regional district and city staff to plan ahead and have park projects ready to go when government funding becomes available. “Getting in on the ground floor with projects that have been planned out and have a timeline is very important in securing government funding whenever it becomes available,â€? Shepherd said. Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan added that playgrounds and parks form an important part of our youth, something he was reminded of recently when he returned to his hometown of Edmonton for a visit. “Driving around and seeing the parks where I used to play when I was growing up‌those are memories that you never forget,â€? Cannan noted. Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson said the new park had special meaning for him since it connects to the Mission Creek Greenway, a project that his mother was instrumental in helping get off the ground. bgerding

said Quinn Best, one of the co-planners of the multi-faceted festival taking place Aug. 13 that’s replacing Mardi Gras. “So we’ve been talking about a program that showcases arts and culture…and culture is not just entertainment.” A little known fact about this city’s downtown is that a good chunk of the world’s cuisine is actually represented in the 89 restaurants that have set up shop. With that in mind event organizers are planning to tap into their skills for the summer event by offering an array of streetfood at the event. In the days leading to the festival, there will event be a pre-festival promotion that will get locals eating out more frequently. Starting July 22, the Downtown Kelowna Association is launching Taste of Downtown, which features a self-guided tour of 24 of downtown Kelowna’s great restaurants and eateries. Participants have three weeks to get their passport book stamped at as many locations as possible and those with at least 15 stamps can submit them for a prize at the festival.

The owner of the live music venue Habitat was also one of the minds behind the Break Out West Festival, which was lauded for months as one of the most successful events to be held downtown. “Through Break Out West we got a blueprint for the best practices to create a successful event in Kelowna,” he said.

Motorcyclist hits a police cruiser Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A 42-year-old Lake Country resident had his motorcycle impounded after sideswiping a police cruiser this weekend. Shortly after 2 a.m. on Saturday, July 16, an unmarked police car was stopped at the intersection of Leon Avenue and Water Street waiting for a traffic light to change when the impatient Harley Davidson motorcyclist decided to pass the cop. When the light turned green, the motorcyclist, who had been stopped

behind the cruiser at the intersection, tried to whip around the police vehicle, accelerating until he lost control, swiped the cruiser. He was tossed to the ground, though little damage was done to the cruiser. “It was more of a glancing sideswipe that caused the driver to lose control,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Steve Holmes. The driver failed two roadside screening tests for alcohol and was issued a 90-day roadside prohibition and the motorcycle was impounded.


Traffic flow change on Cawston Avenue Drivers using Cawston Avenue downtown will notice a change to their commute. Effectively Thursday, two new pedestrian signals were activated on Cawston at Richter Street and Gordon Drive and a pedestrian warning light on Ethel Street to accommodate users of the new pathway alongside Cawston Avenue. As a result of the changes, the pedestrian crossing on Gordon Drive at Wilson Street will be deactivated. For more information about road work in Kelowna go to the city’s website at for updated road closures and potential delays.

Marijuana grow ops busted More than 1,000 marijuana plants were seized last week from homes on Cornerstone Drive and Bear Creek Road in West Kelowna by the RCMP drug squad. On July 14, police executed a warrant at a residence in the 1900 block of Cornerstone Drive, finding a sophisticated threeroom growing operation located in the lower level of the house. Police seized over 840 marijuana plants and located a hydro electric bypass. A 29-year-old male and a 70-year-old female were found within the residence and were arrested. Both were later released on a promise to appear in court on a later date and face charges of production of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and theft of hydro. On July 12, police responded to a tip to a home in the 1300 block of Bear Creek Road and discovered some 400 pot plants, half of which were close to harvest. Police also found a hydro electrical bypass. The investigation continues into the identification and arrest of those involved.

he provincial government may have done a lot of things wrong in recent years, but one thing that is paying dividends now has been to start weaning ourselves off the U.S. as the prime buyer for our lumber. Pat Bell, forests minister prior to the March cabinet shuffle, announced this week that China has now surpassed the United States as B.C.’s number one softwood importer. Bell said for the month of May, China purchased $122

million worth of lumber while the United States took about $119 million for the same month. To put that in perspective, China-bound lumber was less than five per cent of B.C.’s total export production four years ago. That is a reflection of several issues. One is the provincial government’s efforts, working with the forest industry, to open up new markets to China. And it also reflects a need to not be as dependent on the U.S., which has wasted millions of

our dollars in past years fighting international trade legal squabbles over lumber tariffs in order to unfairly protect American lumber producers. China is the emerging world economic leader today, while the debt-ridden U.S. has crippled its own growth by becoming a consumer nation that finds it manufacturing base disappearing due to political mismanagement at the state and White House government levels from 2000 to 2008. B.C.’s lumber industry has

positioned itself in a great position for the immediate future. While the over-heated annual timber cut to save wood from the bark beetle epidemic still presents significant issues down the road. But for now anyway, the world market has changed and our lumber industry has changed with it. It’s that kind of forward thinking, adapting to change, that is needed in all aspects of our economy in order for Canada to keep creating new jobs.

Somewhere along the way, weather becomes climate


y summer road trip to the B.C. Interior began as soon as the Trans-Canada Highway reopened at Chilliwack. The crew had worked through the night to clear a mudslide studded with rocks the size of Smart cars, along with a couple of actual cars. We headed up the historic canyon route from Hope to Yale to Cache Creek, the Fraser River still surging a month after it should have settled back. At Ashcroft, river rafters bravely bobbed on the brown torrent. The Williams Lake Stampede went ahead between rain showers, bull riders benefiting from soft conditions while barrel racers struggled.

We drove to Prince George and then Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., where the Nechako River looked ready to climb out of its banks. As we arrived news came that all this thundering water had done its work, toppling a hydroelectric tower at Surrey, briefly closing the Trans-Canada Highway again. One family member was unable to come down from Chetwynd for a visit. He was cut off by a staggering 16 washouts of Highway 97 north

of Prince George in the Pine Pass, which winds through the Hart Range. This stretch of road has long been a contender for the most extreme mountain conditions in B.C., but one night of torrential rain tore it up beyond anything seen in

my lifetime. This pass is the only road link from southern B.C. to the vast Northeast. The rains would keep coming around Dawson Creek and Fort St. John, disrupting farms, natural gas development, a coal mine and a wind

farm with floods and washouts. The transportation ministry and its contractors had a winding track open through the Pine Pass construction zone within days, an amazing effort to restore essential freight traffic into the region that has emerged as B.C.’s main economic engine. But reconstruction will likely take the rest of the summer. We were back in Victoria by the time the Fraser River finally crested at the Mission gauge after six weeks of high water, its latest peak since 1920. During the trip, gasoline prices reached a high of $1.31, nudged up slightly by the latest increase in the carbon tax as well as political turmoil

overseas. This is B.C.’s largely symbolic nod to the concern that extreme weather events are accelerating due to huge consumption of fossil fuels and emissions of greenhouse gases. I’ve been careful not to make any sweeping statements about the evolving science of climate change. But the sheer power of recent weather events, and the scars left by bark beetles and fires, are difficult to ignore. Australia has just taken bolder steps than those of B.C., imposing a carbon tax on the country’s 500 largest carbon emitters. The government proposes to collect the revSee FletcherA9

Local business owner knows why he bothers To the editor: Why bother keeping your business clean and painted only to have some no-name scrawl graffiti all over it? Why bother to grow and care for small planters with beautiful flowers only to have some no-

name stomp on them or destroy them? Why bother to go to the expense of having your windows of your business painted with bright colorful and fun pictures only to have some no-name scratch and deface them? Why bother to sweep,

wash and clean the sidewalks all around you so some no-name can drop garbage, cigarette butts, urinate and defecate on it? Why bother, is what I ask myself sometimes. Why bother? Of course, the answer is obvious. If I did

give up, stop caring and doing these things, these unthinking, low life, nonames would win. I love and am proud to call Kelowna home, where I live, have a business, raise my kids and one day will retire. I’ll be dammed if I will quit

Call to halt installation of ‘smart’ meters To the editor: I am writing on behalf of workers in the province of B.C. who are exposed to electromagnetic radiations (EMRs). And refer you to the following safety regulation under the Workers Compensation Act: Workers Compensation Act—Occupational Health And Safety Regulation 5.57. Designated substances. (1) If a substance identified as any of the following is present in the workplace, the employer must replace it, if practicable, with a material which reduces the risk to workers: (a) ACGIH A1 or A2, or IARC 1, 2A or 2B carcinogen. I saw the article in the July 16, 2011 Times Colonist where Christy Clark has announced that primary esophageal cancer is now viewed as an occupational hazard for firefighters. I applaud this announcement and hope that she

and the government will soon call a moratorium on the project B.C. Hydro is undertaking to blanket the province with “smart” meters. This project was undertaken and mandated by the former government. Now, with the new findings from the World Health Organization (WHO), there are a number of citizens who feel this needs to be halted for health reasons not only to themselves but to the installers. On July 1, 2011 the WHO issued a press release stating that EMRs (electromagnetic radiations) are now classed as a possible 2B carcinogen. This is the same class that lead and DDT are in. (World Health Organization: International Agency for Research on Cancer, Press Release No. 208). It is our hope that a moratorium can be called on the installation of “smart” meters until EMRs can be researched more fully and until they are removed from

this category relating to cancer concerns. We can’t prevent firefighters from inhaling second hand smoke and I’m sorry this is a byproduct of their occupation but at least they get to choose if this is something they wish to expose themselves to. If “smart” meters are installed across the province there will be no choice offered the installers, maintenance personnel or homeowners and business workers. There is no public oversight of this project. Our government now no longer allows smoking in public places, it no longer allows for the use of lead pipes and we no longer spray DDT. Here is an opportunity to be proactive about the health concerns of the citizens of our province and possibly in the long term save health care dollars to make up for any losses incurred by halting this project that is already under way.

Making green roofs greener

Thwart from A1 must hold the note close to the eye and shine a light behind it. The number is hidden in a holograph image of a flower. On the rest of the note, there are the usual holograph images, but also several raised areas buried in specific spots where those who accept bills will be trained to look. Ensuring that money is genuine and not counterfeit is an individual’s responsibility, meaning business owners can suffer major losses when several bills are accepted that are found to be fraudulent. That said, the bank

representatives do not want individuals trying to catch counterfeiters or those who show up with counterfeit money. The appropriate response is to turn down the money and suggest the person take it to local law enforcement then contact the RCMP to let them know a suspicious bill has been spotted. The $100 bill will be on the street come November, followed by a $50 in March, 2012. The rest will be out before 2013. Detailed information on the new note and its features can be found at

Some of the protective identifiers include: • a metallic portrait holograph in the clear window • small “100” numbers in the clear window • a metallic Parliament building in the window • a maple leaf border which straddles the clear window and the solid bill surface • raised ink, and • a frosted maple leaf window with a hidden number, The polymer series is expected to save money over time as the bills themselves last longer than cotton bills.

UBC researchers Kasun Hewage and Fabricio Bianchini are taking a good idea and making it better, perhaps spawning a new construction technology for use in arid countries worldwide. Hewage, an assistant professor of project and construction management in the School of Engineering at UBC Okanagan, and his Master of Applied Science student Bianchini have been looking at ways to make green roofs even more environmentally friendly by using construction waste. Green roofs—where plants are grown on specially designed matting that is placed on top of a building—are no longer a novel idea.

But there is room for improvement, and Hewage and Bianchini are looking at recycling waste building materials to form the base layers of a green roof. Currently, materials for the layers are made out of plastic. While the lifespan of a manufactured green roof is about 50 years, it takes 25 years to compensate for the environmental damage caused from making the plastics contained in the roof layering material. Hewage and Bianchini are searching for the best type of construction waste to reduce the amount of plastic used in green-roof material. Utilizing construction waste also reduces the amount of material that is dumped into lo-

cal landfills. Green construction is becoming a mantra throughout North America, and Bianchini says green roofs can play a role in reducing harm to the environment in several capacities. Green roofs act as an insulator, meaning less energy is needed to heat a building in the winter and cool it in the summer. “Plants regulate temperatures on Earth, so we are trying to apply that to buildings,” said Bianchini. But finding the best material is not the only challenge they face. Hewage says the material must not be too heavy —plastic is light, thus making it a popular material—and it must not be too expensive to integrate

into a building. Construction projects produce many types of waste virtually from day one. Hewage says once a type of waste is identified as the optimum material, it can be stored and used at the end of the construction project for green roof applications. The project began last year, and Bianchini is monitoring several green-roof plant beds on campus that were donated by green-roof manufacturing company Xeroflor, which has taken an active interest in the project. Bianchini will compare the results of the manufactured material against a green roof he constructed using discarded, crushed concrete as drainage material.

worth protecting…although it’s a considerable expense,” he said of the practice that has a whirly bird fly above crops to blow away water and prevent splitting. “Growers will be on a list, so the cost for the time in the air will be shared by several farmers.” Cherries are believed to be growing well so far, but they are anywhere from 10 days to two weeks behind schedule. That’s led to another problem. “We have an abundance of pickers ready to harvest, and they’re having to wait around.” Those pickers typically come in from Quebec, although Sardinha said there’s a growing number of Mexican labourers waiting around as well. All said and done, it’s another tumultuous year in agriculture, but Sardinha is taking a sunnier approach than the weather. “On the bright side, our crops are in the ground, which is better than what’s happening with Prairie farmers who have muddy fields they can’t seed,” he said. “Weather is just weird, for lack of a better word.”

Viral infection source of a cancer that can be prevented C

News from your community Capital News


Dr. Moshe Oz cation of the cancer developed. The disease is diagnosed and confirmed by a blood test. Most veterinary clinics carry an in-house test that can give you a result within only a few minutes. If left untreated the infected cat will die within one to two months from the onset of the clinical disease. Most of the cancers that are caused by feline leukemia virus respond well to chemotherapy but only prolong the cat’s life by a few months.


ancer has always been one of the most challenging areas in both human and veterinary medicine. One of the most common types of cancers in cats is feline leukemia, which is actually a result of a viral infection. Luckily, with the right management this cancer may be prevented. Feline leukemia virus (AKA FELV) is a virus of the retro-virus family. The disease spreads easily either by a contact between a carrier cat to unexposed cat or from a carrier pregnant queen to her kittens through the placenta or in the milk. The virus cannot be transmitted from cats to dogs, nor to humans. Feline leukemia virus attacks the body’s lymphoid tissue (part of the immune system) and may cause either lymphosarcome—tumors in various internal organs, or leukemia—cancer of the white blood cells in the blood. The virus also leads to anemia and general weakness of the immune system, which alters the cat’s ability to fight any sort of infection. The severity of the disease depends mainly on the timing of the exposure to the virus, and the strength of the cat’s immune system. The stronger the cat’s immune system is, the more likely that it will overcome the infection. Kittens younger than six months of age are the most prone to develop persistent infection. The disease starts to be manifested by clinical sign only two to four years after the exposure. This fact makes it hard to prevent the transmission of the disease. Unfortunately, your cat can get sick by being in contact with another cat that evidently seems healthy. There are many different symptoms for the disease, depending on the lo-

Fortunately, there is a vaccine available against feline leukemia virus. The vaccine is not risk free, and there is no vaccine that guarantees complete protection, but since people started to routinely vaccinate their cats against FELV, the prevalence of the disease has been markedly reduced. Kittens, as being the most prone to severe infection, should be vaccinated twice. The first vaccine is given at the age of eight to nine weeks followed by a booster three to four weeks later, and regularly as adults. If you decide to adopt a new cat, I also recommend to first check the cat for the disease. Especially if there are other cats in the household or if you are planning on letting your cat roam around

freely outdoors. If you do adopt an infected cat, it is not an immediate death sentence. This cat needs to get the same health care as any other cat, including routine vaccinations. It is important to keep infected cats away from other cats. Because infected cats are more prone to severe infections, a routine physical exam by a veterinarian is recommended at least every six months. Please consult your veterinarian about more information on feline leukemia virus and how to protect your fury friend from it.

New look in Okanagan Sun secondary STAFF REPORTER

In one respect, Wyatt Smith finds himself alone in the Okanagan Sun's defensive backfield. The 22-year-old RSS product is the only healthy body at training camp who was a starter in the BCFC club's secondary last season. With the likes of veterans Daylon Pommier (Concordia), Jesse Warawa (graduated) and Tyler Robson (U of S) having moved on, Smith

is ready to take on some added responsibility as the Sun backfield undergoes some significant changes. "It's a new role for me. You know Daylon was our guy, our leader last year and there was a bunch of returning starters," said Smith, entering his fourth season with the Sun. "This year we're quite a bit younger. I know some of the guys having played with them and we have a bunch of new guys, too. We just have to embrace it, I'm excited to step and have a chance to lead

by example, I'd like to be a vocal leader, inspire the boys, and as one of the older guys it's my job to do that." While players with starting experience are scarce, head coach Jason Casey isn't concerned about being able to adequately fill all five starting spots in the secondary. Among returning veterans expected to push for playing time are J.R. Richardson, Robbie Yochim, Stephen McFayden, Davend Reddy, Blake Butler and D.J. Weber. Rookies

Wes Geisler (Boucherie), Brennan Van Nistelrooy (Lethbridge), Jeremy Sroka (Van College), Daniel Ruddy (Calgary) and Beau Barthel (Lethbridge) add youth and energy to the mix. "Technically, there are going to be new names at these positions, but by no means do we feel this year is going to be a step back," said Casey. "You never want to lose guys like Pommier, Warawa, or Robson, they were leaders talent-wise and vocally. But we expect the guys

Wyatt Smith And it's precisely the answer Casey wants to hear from veterans like Smith who will be leaned on for both leadership and on-field production. "What Wyatt's seen in the games, he can bring to these 17,18 and 19-yearolds," added Casey. "The fact he did play more than one position, not just a corner, not just a half so he does know the that's required to be a DB. He's going to be a key guy for us."


The 2011 version of training camp has been as physical as many players can remember. No fewer than 15 Sun players were unable to take part in Sunday's workouts at the Parkinson fields due to injuries, and assorted bumps and bruises. "We are young across the board on average, so a lot of these young guys aren't use to getting hit by men," said Casey. "They're not quite used to the intensity and physicality, so bumps and bruises will happen. These guys are fighting hard for position, so it's something you're going to see." The Sun opens the BCFC regular season July 31 in Kamloops.

c “Ex


we have will fill those boots and maybe even surpass them, so we can play deep into November. In the end, we're going to put the best five athletes on the field, regardless of whether they're corners, halfs or safeties." Other than Smith, Matt Harris is the only Sun player with starting experience in the secondary. Harris is awaiting surgery to repair a damaged miniscus in his left knee and hopes to be back on the field within six weeks. "I'm just paying attention, trying to keep my head in the game and stay positive," said Harris, 21. "I'm trying to share what I've learned from older guys in the past and pass that down to the younger guys. "I also need to make sure I'm ready when my knee heals up so I can get back in there as soon as possible and help the team." Under coach Casey, the prevailing theme at this year's training camp is that very few jobs are etched in stone. Wyatt Smith welcomes the healthy competition and, despite his experience, is taking nothing for granted in his bid for a starting role. "If you go into feeling like 'I'm the guy, I got this job,' then you're going in with the wrong attitude," said Smith who can play both corner and half. "You know there are guys underneath you ready to grab your spot. You've got to earn it, it pushes you to compete and it's a good situation for the football team."

Another crown for Jays The Kelowna Jays have gone back to back after winning the B.C. Junior Baseball Championships on the weekend in Kamloops. The Jays beat the Kamloops Sun Devils twice on Sunday—including an extra innings thriller—to claim its second straight B.C. junior baseball crown. Jake Chapman hit a walk-off, bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Jays a 3-2 win over Kamloops in the championship game as the Jays were crowned B.C. Junior Baseball champions for the second straight year. "It was a wild game, it was exciting," said Jays coach Geoff White. "It's a huge accomplishment for our guys. Our pitching staff stepped up and gave us quality innings and when it came to crunch time our guys swung the bat and played defense well." With the final game tied 2-2 and Jays pitchers Paul Dippell, Darren Kolk and Brandon Klym holding Kamloops hitters at bay, Jays speedster KP Hlatky sparked the winning rally with a bunt for a base hit. Hlatky then stole second, one of four steals he recorded in the final, before the Jays loaded the bases and Chapman played the hero. On the mound Dippell pitched six strong innings before Kolk was unhittable for four innings and Klym finished Kamloops off and earned the win. It was the second straight win over Kamloops on a long day of baseball Sunday. Early that day Hlatky also keyed a win over Kamloops that would vault the Jays into the final. With the score tied 4-4, Hlatky led off the seventh inning with a triple before Danny Stearns won the game with a hit. Kelowna also had lopsided wins over the B.C. Minor Wizards and B.C. Minor Gibsons. Kelowna will play in the Canadian Junior Championships in Windsor next month.

turn will be pitted against several top CIS guards that include players from the University of Regina Cougars and the Trinity Western University Spartans. The Cougars come to Kelowna on Nov. 25, bringing 2010-11 second team CIS All-Canadian Joanna Zalesiak, a fourthyear guard and dynamic

Heat to host T-birds in November The opening serve has yet to be hit, but already the rivalry between the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus Heat Volleyball squad and the UBC Thunderbirds has sports fans buzzing with anticipation. The Thunderbirds will be on campus Nov. 4 and 5 for a highly anticipated and historic first clash between varsity teams from each of UBC’s campuses. Both the Heat and Thunderbirds have a decorated history within the CCAA and CIS respectively. The Thunderbirds are loaded with experience, having seven graduating players on the 2011-2012 roster. The T-Birds will test the will, abilities and experience of reigning CCAA National Player of the Year Preston Tucker and fellow fifth-year players Spencer Brown and Mark Broome from the Heat. The women will also have a notable standoff against the visiting Thunderbirds team in the first weekend of November. The Thunderbirds

are coming off a season where they completed a four-peat to set a CIS record for most National titles with eight. Outside hitters Kyla Richey, Lisa Barclay and Shanice Marcelle will be returning to the squad for the 2011-12 season. Marcelle is the reigning CIS Player of the Year, and all three players were selected to play for Canadian National teams this summer. Both Heat teams will open the Canada West season week earlier, Oct. 28 and 29 at home to the Univer After experiencing some measure of success in CIS exhibitions the past few years includ-

ing victories over Thompson Rivers University, Brandon University and the University of Calgary last fall, the Heat will have to test their mettle without captain and All-Canadian Caitlin Nyhus, who graduated from the University. Coach Steve Manuel will look to fourth year player Alex Basso to lead the way with Kelowna product Chandler Proch in her second year as the new starting setter. The Heat will also face Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta, Regina, Calgary, Brandon, Trinity Western and Thompson Rivers during the 2011-12 season. For complete Heat schedule visit

Raiders battle Venom in final The Kelowna Raiders will battle the defending champion Kamloops Venom in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League final beginning Tuesday night at Memorial Arena. Face off in the open-

er of the best-of-five is 7 p.m. The Venom, who took down Armstrong in three games in the semifinal, had a slow start to the season but appear to have saved their best for last. "They've always had a

lot of depth, but their biggest strength is coaching," Raiders coach Travis Wray said of the Venom. "It should be an interesting series. We match up quite well against them. I think defense and goaltending will be the difference." Game 2 is scheduled for Werdnesday in Kamloops, while Game 3 is set for Friday back in Kelowna. The Raiders survived a close call in their TOJLL semifinal series as downed the Vernon Tigers in three games. Despite being out shot 20-6 in the third period Thursday night at Memorial, Kelowna held off the Tigers for a 6-5 win. "Vernon gave us everything we could handle," said Wray. "It came down to the last possession, but our defense played lights out and we hung on." Tyler French paced the Raiders attack with two goals and an assist. Ryan Phillips, Ryley McLennan, Shaun Hochhausen and Evan Helgesen

scored the other goal s the Raiders, while Tanner Belsham stopped 39 of 44 shots in goal.


The Kelowna Raiders already know they're in the Okanagan Xtreme Lacrosse League playoffs. Who they'll play in the opening round will be decided Wednesday when the Kamloops Rattlers and Vernon Tigers meet in the regular season final. The Raiders (7-5) are currently in top spot after closing their regular campaign with a come-frombehind 7-6 win Friday at Memorial Arena. Steve Plasko scored the game winner with under 30 seconds to play as Kelowna battled back from a 6-4 third-period deficit. Captain Kyle McLennan scored with less than two minutes to play to make it 6-5, followed by Luke Bailey's marker to tie the game up. Eric Wray was solid in goal for Kelowna, making several key saves to keep the game close.


EMERGING TRIUMPHANT…David Dimitrov emerges from

Okanagan Lake on Saturday at City Park to win the Interior Savings Across the Lake Swim for the second year in a row. Dimitrov completed the 2.1 km swim in 21 minutes 58 seconds.

Okanagan beauty impresses riders Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

There were a few surprises for organizers of the inaugural RBC Kelowna GranFondo on the weekend. Thankfully, they were mostly pleasant surprises for the first ever GranFondo to be held in Kelowna, a mass 115-kilometre ride through the hillsides of Kelowna, Vernon, Oyama and Lake Country with 1,200 cyclists taking it all in. "I think we surprised a lot of people with the beauty of road cycling in the Okanagan; that was a common phrase I heard a lot was how beautiful it was," said Kelowna GranFondo co-founder Kevin


CHRIS MCNEIL raises his arms in triumph after finishing first in the first annual

RBC GranFondo Kelowna in three hours six minutes 31 seconds. Kelowna’s Cyrus Kangrloo was a close second in 3:06:37, with Cory Forrest taking third in 3:06:39 in the 115-km race, featuring close to 1,200 riders. Krista Rawlings was the first woman to finish in 3:35:28

Thomson. "I had some friends that were riding and they were cheered on quite consistently through the course. That was surprising for a first year event. Watching people in their communities get out there cheering is something that really stirs the soul." GranFondos are hugely popular in Europe and are more of a recreational ride than a race with the emphasis on cycling rather than winning. Still, after 115 km, just eight seconds separated the top three male finishers as Calgary rider Chris McNeil rode the course in 3:06:31, followed closely by Kelowna cyclists Cyrus Kangarloo (3:06:37) and Cory

Forrest (3:06:39). The top finishing female rider was North Vancouver's Krista Rawlings, who crossed the finish line in 3:35:28, three seconds better than the Lower Mainland's Marni Hambleton. With thousands of cyclists traveling through multiple communities using a dedicated cycling lane for the entire route, there were relatively few problems, according to Thomson. "There were some little things, individual issue but we had no mass issue that we had to fix," he said. "Certainly there are things we are going to improve upon but as an inaugural event we couldn't have been more pleased with how things came

together." Things came together so good, in fact, that organizers have already committed to another GranFondo in Kelowna with the second Kelowna ride set to take place July 14, 2012. "We're here for the long haul and we're looking to build this event," said Thomson. "We want to give people a reason to get on the bicycle and join what feels like a renaissance movement in road cycling." GranFondo Canada will host the second annual Whister GranFondo this September with other events in Niagara Falls and Alberta in 2012.

Forbes ninth at B.C. Amateur; Osland second at CN Future Links jr girls The Okanagan Golf Club's Greg Forbes tied for ninth overall at the B.C. Men's Amateur Golf Championship. Forbes carded a fourday score of 6-under par 282 (68-74-70-70) to finish seven strokes back of champion David Rose of the Capilano Golf and Country Club last week at The Dunes in Kamloops. Westbank's Morgan

Decksheimer from Two Eagles ended in a tie for 12th at 5-under 283, while the Harvest's Christian Pomerleau tied for 25th at 1-over 289. Kelowna Golf and Country Club's Keith Martin tied for 29th at 290, with Brett Devries of Gallagher's coming in 34th at 291.


Kelowna's Megan Osland was the runner-up in the junior girls division at the 2011 CN Future Links Western Golf Championship. Osland posted a tworound score of even-par 142 (70-72) to finish four strokes back of Calgary's Jennifer Ha last weekend at the Wolf Creek Golf Resort in Ponoka, Alta.

The tournament was shortened from three rounds to two due to rain. Osland has had a solid summer of golf which also included an eleventh place finish at the seasonopening CN Future Links Pacific Championship, and a fourth place showing at the B.C. Junior Girls Championship.


Madison Kapchinsky of Kelowna Springs Golf Club captured the girls title at the first Okanagan stop of the season on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour. Kapchinsky's two round total of 154 (78-76) last week at the Harvest Golf Club was good for a three-stroke victory over another Kelowna golfer, Jessica Claggett (76-81)

LeafSource stops customers pain within days!

– Advertisement –

“It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.” By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops

through the aging process. With joint inflammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-inflammatory drugs that cause more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-inflammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function. To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take for granted, until it’s gone! Ian adds, “I often recommend that LeafSource be taken with other natural joint products in order to help them work better and provide even faster relief. One of the things I hear most often from people

LOCAL SNOWBOARDERS are celebrating the ad-

dition of slopestyle as an Olympic medal event in 2014. executive director of the B.C. Snowboard Association based out of Kelowna says the Okanagan is perfectly situated to develop slopestyle athletes. “The first FIS sanctioned slopestyle event in Canada was held at Big White’s Telus Park," she said. "Big White has been a long-time supporter of slopestyle, hosting B.C. Snowboard Provincial Series events since 2005.� Flynn Seddon, Director of Terrain Parks and Events at Big White add-

What are the beneďŹ ts of advertising my business or services in “Ask the Expertsâ€??

Newspapers are used to plan purchases, either for an immediate need or a future purchase. While the economy might have changed the way Canadians shop, one thing that hasn’t chnaged is the tool that they use to make their shopping decisions. Most adults identify newspapers as the way they use to plan shopping or make purchasing decisions. Secondly, newspapers ads are WELCOMED! In other media, ads are actively avoided. Newspaper is one of the few types of media where readers indicate that they want the ads. Newspapers score higher than T.V., Radio and the Internet in terms of Canadians. Lastly, newspaper readers take action, over 10 million Canadians read a newspaper on an average weekday. But they don’t just read the paper, they are moved to action based on the advertising contained in it.

Are previous marijuana grow homes in the Okanagan safe to live in? Part 2

Healthy Homes IAQ has conducted a signiďŹ cant number of residential and commercial environmental assessments in the Okanagan over the past ten years and have experienced ďŹ rsthand the concealment of past grow operations and the resulting toxic environments that remain. Removing the plants, soil, and grow equipment does not remove the toxic environments they can create. Relying on that home owner to ensure the non-visible fungal contamination has been removed is dubious at best. An accurate way to determine the extent of remaining toxic fungal contamination is through site assessment and air and bulk testing conducted by a Professional Environmental Consultant. Healthy Homes IAQ is certiďŹ ed to conduct professional environmental assessments and determine remediation protocols for mould remediation specialists to ensure a healthy home environment. Don’t be uncertain about your home environment, your health relies on it.

Be wary of fraudsters using family ties to rip you off W hen the grandson scam was first detected being attempted in Kelowna in December

2009, then again in August 2010, the Kelowna RCMP publicized it through the local media to warn the public about this

particular fraud. But the scam remains actively attempted in our community today, and seniors are being defrauded

Are you or a loved one suffering from Memory Loss? Are you looking to be a part of the research to identify a possible treatment option for Alzheimer’s Disease?

of their money. As more reports of the same fraud have been reported, the police again want to warn the public to not fall victim to this fraud. This is how it usually plays out: A person, usually a senior, gets a call from someone claiming to be a family member, a young adult that is supposedly incarcerated in jail elsewhere in Canada. In some instances, the caller has also claimed to be a lawyer representing Now you can use the Internet to add your own non-profit event to the Capital News Stuff to Do.

Sharen Marteny the family member. The caller asks for $5,000 to be wired to them in order to facilitate their release from jail. In one instance, the 88-year-old male victim wired the money to his “grandson,” whose name was correctly given. The next day the “grandson” called back thanking the victim, and asked for another $5,000 for court costs. At that point, the victim called his real grandson to find out that he was currently living in another country, and was not in jail. In another instance, the 86-year-old female

victim received a call from a male claiming to be her “grandson” and was given the same story. The victim, possibly suspecting something funny was going on, asked to speak to the caller’s lawyer. The caller said the lawyer would call her. No one called her back. She saved herself $5,000. The fact that criminals are preying upon our seniors, the more vulnerable members of our community, is despicable. Sadly, police can do little more than warn the public as it is almost impossible to track down the suspects involved in these fraud scams. Generally, these people are operating outside of the country. So, be wary of anyone who asks for money in any way, be it face to face, over the Internet, or by phone or mail. Always ask questions

and follow up to see if the requestor is legitimate. Familiarize yourself with the documented active scams by checking out websites such as or Be aware that there could be more scams going on than what are listed. Lastly, report incidents of interactions with would be fraudsters by calling the police. A lot of these scams are perpetrated very quickly in a given area, and take people by surprise. The sooner the scam is reported, the sooner the public can be warned and the scammers forced to move on. Sharen Marteny is a services consultant for seniors in Kelowna. 250-212-1257

Fit seniors better able to care for themselves Active, physically fit seniors are less frail, better able to care for themselves and live independently longer than those with a sedentary lifestyle, according to UBC Okangan research findings. The Healthy Exercise and Aging Lab (HEAL) Group at the university’s Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention has released a study demonstrating a link between frailty and loss of functional independence in seniors.

Study: Women age quicker than men Fit from A20 Upwards of 90 per cent of older Canadians live with chronic disease conditions, more than 40 per cent report a level of disability and more than 50 per cent of older adults exhibit preliminary signs of frailty, according to Health Canada. However, while disability and illness are part of the aging process, they are not directly responsible for making seniors frail and unable to complete daily living tasks, the UBC research concludes. “What is overlooked is

the contribution that physical fitness has on functional dependence,” said researcher Jennifer Jakobi, an assistant professor with UBC’s faculty of Health and Social Development. “It is the loss of physical fitness which makes simple daily tasks, like rising from a chair, housecleaning chores and climbing stairs almost impossible to do without becoming overly winded and fatigued. “Evidence shows that fit seniors make fewer demands on health care systems and require less sup-

port than those who are frail.” The HEAL research group used both laboratory and field-based performance measures to better understand and accurately map the fitness factors of independent aging. In a related finding, the research determined that there are sex-related differences between older men and women, which may explain why women become frail earlier than men. The study focused on the onset of Parkinson’s disease in seniors, indicating that women are 10

times more likely to become frail than men of the same age when both genders have Parkinson’s. “Earlier diagnosis and treatment intervention such as exercise will reduce the impact of ageassociated functional decline experienced by older men and women,” said HEAL researcher Gareth Jones, an assistant professor with UBC’s faculty of Health and Social Development. Ultimately, these tools may be used by clinicians in the future to diagnose frailty, or PD stages, in both men and women.

Things your employer owes you


previously wrote on the topic of things your employment doesn’t include and the feedback I received indicated that employers were relieved to see the boundaries of their legal obligations established. However, as Blood, Sweat and Tears sang in one of their hits songs, “What goes up, must come down.� So, this week I’d like to identify some things employers do owe their employees. First and foremost, all employers owe their employees compliance with statutory requirements. In B.C., the primary employment-related legislation includes the Employment Standards Act, the Human Rights Code, the Labour Relations Code and the Workers Compensation Act. These statutes establish minimum standards which are, to a large extent, non-negotiable. The “golden rule� of employment legislation is that employees cannot contract out of their statutory rights so, with some exceptions (relating mostly to unionized work environments), the employer is not permitted to impose a lesser standard on its employees. The B.C. Employment Standards Act sets out minimum stan-

YOU WORK dards for wages, vaHERE cation pay, hours of

work and overtime, statutory holiday pay, notice of termination, unpaid leaves of absence and many other Robert aspects of the day-toSmithson day relationship between employer and employee. The Human Rights Code establishes the obligation of non-discriminatory treatment of individuals in the employment setting. The B.C. Labour Relations Code enshrines the right to organize for collective bargaining purposes and creates a structure for managing and resolving labour disputes and work stoppages. The Workers Compensation Act seeks to ensure that every employee is provided with a safe workplace in which to be employed. Employers also owe their employees compliance with so-called “implied� terms of employment established by judges in what is referred to as the “common law� of employment. There are various terms which have been imposed on the employment relationship by our courts, the most important of which is the employer’s obligation to provide employees with reasonable working

notice of termination (in a not-forcause situation). Employers can, using enforceable and properly-implemented employment agreements, contract out of these implied obligations but the reality is that the great majority of employers have not taken the required steps to do so. That being the case, they must do things like provide reasonable working notice or pay in lieu thereof. Employers also must share in the cost of contributions to employment insurance and the Canada Pension Plan. These remittances are calculated according to published formulae and are in addition to employees’ contributions. In the human rights setting, employers must accommodate the needs of employees in a wide range of scenarios, the most common of which is the existence of a disability. This obligation ends, however, when the impact on the employer reaches the point of undue hardship or when the employee refuses to facilitate the employer’s accommodation efforts. When the employer has taken the wise step of utilizing an appropriately-worded employment agreement, it must comply with the obligations contained in that document. See Smithson A24

Employers bound by some labour laws Smithson from A23 Whether relating to the provision of benefits coverage, various compensation-related items, or terms of severance, an employer which fails to comply with its contractual obligations likely faces a date in court. If the employer wishes to have the benefit of certain advantageous terms (relating, for instance, to an initial probation period or to the right to impose unpaid layoffs), it must state those terms in a contractually binding manner. Many employers have paid the price for attempting to terminate an employee during a period of probation when, in fact, no such period has been properly established. This list really just scratches the surface of the employer’s obligations towards its employees. Complying with these requirements will go a long way towards keeping the employer out of court and employment lawyers off its payroll.

Retirement plan options


etirement can be more of a transition for many people today. Longer life expectancies may be part of the consideration to stay in the work force. Life expectancies are increasing so we will have longer retirements. Other people choose to retire as soon as they can. The average person will retire today at 61 years of age and live almost three decades in retirement. How much is needed in retirement? The income stream required for most people is based on lifestyle choices and retirement income. If you are five years away from retirement, do an estimate of your current income and see if you can live the retirement lifestyle of your choice. Prepare a budget. Take a realistic look at how much you spend on the necessities of life. Also, create a wishlist of expenditures above and beyond the necessities of life. Travel and hobbies may be a big part of retirement spending. There are three main sources of retirement income—a combination of government programs, employer-sponsored plans and your own personal RRSPs and investments. The Old Age Security is available to most Canadians age 65 or older. The maximum amount is $533.70. There are additional benefits available for seniors in need who are eligible. The Guaranteed Income Supplement is available to those who have little or no other retirement in-

come. The allowance is available to people age 60 to 64 whose spouse/common law partner receives the Old Age Security Program and the GIS. There is also an allowDoreen ance for the survivor, for Smith people age 60 to 64 who have little or no income and whose spouse is deceased. The Canada Pension Plan is an earnings related program tied to the contributions you made during your working years and is also based on your age at the time you apply for benefits. If you have ceased employment at age 60, you can apply for benefits. The maximum allowed at age 65 is $960 and the benefits are revised quarterly to reflect the cost of living. There are many types of employer sponsored plans, the income stream from company pensions depend on the type of plan, how long you’re a member, your own contribution level, the company’s contribution and the choice of investments. The third source of retirement income comes from personal savings. RRSPs, non-registered savings and TFSAs to provide an income stream in retirement. Receiving income in retirement requires tax planning. You may also need to consider an estate planning strategy and draw extra money during your retirement to reduce tax payable at death.

In Memoriam

In Remembrance of our Eunice Koutny

Aug 11, 1947 - July 17, 1991 It’s been 20 years, and my how the time has passed. Both of your kids now have kids, your Grandchildren Eunice, and you’d be very proud of them. Your love of life, your hugs and laughter were much loved by all. You looked for the best in others, and gave the best of yourself to others. Not a day goes by knowing we were honoured to have you touch our lives. You left us way too early, but left an indelible mark on our lives that only a true angel can. You may be gone but not forgotten. You will always be loved and dearly missed by all whose lives you’ve touched.

Love you always, Richard, Dwayne & Family, Lois & Family and Loved ones.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen cherry af-fair With summer truly here, we’ve been enjoying early cherries and I imagine it’s almost time for a few ideas for different things to do with these first local tree fruits of the new season. Sweet, succulent cherries are not only delicious eaten out of hand during the few months we have them available, they also make a delightful addition to main dishes and salads. This coming weekend, you will have a chance to taste test all sorts of new varieties of these old favourites, many of which are now being grown around the world although they have been developed right here in the Okanagan, at the federal Agri-food Research Centre at Summerland. Cherry growers from around the valley will bring their fruit for you to try at the new-restored B.C. Orchard Industry Museum in the heritage Laurel Packinghouse on Ellis Street at the 16th annual Cherry Fair, Saturday, July 23, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For the past two years, the fair has been held in other venues in Kelowna while the Laurel was being renovated, so organizers are delighted to be able to celebrate its return to the building, which is now a beautiful setting for weddings, meetings, celebrations and events such as fairs. Admission is just $2 each or $5 a family so the whole community can get involved. There’ll be professional face painting by CupCasions and face-to-face face painting, hands-on educational activities for the kids, as well as a live beehive demonstration with Vic MacDonald of Bees Inc., and the Ogopogo Bouncy House will be there for free. There’ll be food such as waffles and gyoza in addition to cherries, and live entertainment as well. Support the musuem and celebrate the cherry. If you're interested in more of my cherry recipes, as well as recipes using all sorts of other ingredients, pick up a copy of my new book, Jude's Kitchen wherever books are sold.

Cherry Chicken Salad on Greens with Pine Nuts Cherries make a terrific garnish for a green salad made heartier with shredded, poached chicken. Poaching chicken is a tasty, low-fat way to turn a salad into a satisfying summer meal. 4 boneless chicken thighs 1 knob ginger 2 tsp. (10 ml) teriyaki sauce water 6 c. (1.5 l) fresh greens 1/2 c. (125 ml) cucumber dice 1 stalk of celery 1 c. (250 ml) cherries 1 tbsp. (15 ml) toasted pine nuts Poach boneless, skinless chicken (you may substitute breasts) by chopping up a

knob of fresh ginger and adding a little teriyaki sauce to a pot or pan with a lid, which will fit the chicken snugly. Add chicken and enough water to just cover the meat. Bring it to bubbling, then reduce the heat to low. Partly cover and let simmer gently for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit in the liquid for about 10 minutes more before removing the chicken and cooling it. Tear fresh, rinsed greens into a salad bowl, dice cucumber and celery and pit and halve cherries. Add vegetables to the greens. Shred cooled chicken into the salad and top with cherries and pine nuts. Serve with a light yogurt and cucumber dressing or a balsamic vinaigrette. Serves 4.

Cherry Chicken with Rosé This combines sweet, sour and spicy in a delightful combination that highlights the wonderful flavour of fresh cherries. We paired this with a nice, dry summery rosé, the 2010 Mission Hill Five Vineyards Rosé. It was delightfully refreshing and full of berry flavours. A splash of it elevated this chicken dish to a new level. 1 onion 1 tbsp. (15 ml) ginger 1 garlic clove 4 boneless chicken thighs drizzle of oil 3/4 c. (175 ml) chicken stock 1/4 c.
