Rugged terrain hampers search for missing plane Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Search and rescue crews continue to comb the flightpath between Penticton and Chilliwack in hopes of finding the four men on board the single-engine plane that went missing Tuesday night. Media outlets have identified the pilot of the Piper PA24 as Rama Tello and the three passengers as the Kelowna man’s friends and family. It’s not information the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre, which is in charge of search efforts, can corroborate at this time, but members of the Kelowna Flight Club are familiar with the aircraft and its registration number—CFLQS— which is clearly displayed on a YouTube video, titled Rama Plane. The brief video clip also implies that Tello was a fairly new pilot, although Capt. Scott Cursley, searchmaster and pilot from 442 Squadron, 19 Wing Comox has indicat-

ed that may not have been the issue. “While the pilot had relatively few hours of flying time, he was known for being conscientious and cautious in his approach to flying,” said Cursley. At this point the biggest challenge is the sheer expanse of land that searchers have to traverse. “The flight plan only states that (the pilot) is flying from Penticton to Victoria,” said Capt. Quentin Wyne, the co-ordination centre’s public affairs officer. “Of course that’s a considerable distance and we have to search five nautical miles north and south of that route, in challenging terrain.” Further complicating matters is that the electronic emergency beacon from the plane has failed to indicate where the plane is—something Wyne said could have happened for any number of reasons. “It’s battery powered and batteries could be damaged if there was an

impact. Or, they may be separated from the plane or it may be in a geographic area where the signal is impeded,” he said. Despite the challenges, Wyne said crews won’t be giving up on finding survivors anytime soon. “We’re always optimistic and we’re hoping the aircraft will be found intact with passengers and pilot who have survived a landing,” he said. That said, landing the small craft safely could have posed challenging to the pilot. “It’s rough terrain and it would be difficult to land an aircraft if you’re not able to be picky about where it’s going down,” said Wyne. The plane left Penticton at 5:10 p.m. Tuesday, after flying from Kelowna, and was expected to arrive in Victoria about 7:30 p.m. The Kamloops Flight Information Centre reported the plane missing just before 10 p.m. and an immediate search was conducted by a Buffalo

Throughout Wednesday and Thursday, numerous other search planes were deployed, and Wyne said there were about 11 hunt-

ing for the plane at any given time. The air search is being assisted by the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association.

Plane involved in search reports problem but lands safely Fire sirens bellowed across the Central Okanagan Thursday morning, when crews were called out to deal with a search and rescue plane that was reported to be in distress.

“It was a Buffalo aircraft,” explained Jenelle Hynes, the airport’s communications manager. “We, at the airport, received a notification it was having an emergency on

board, so we had Ellison, Lake Country, Kelowna (firefighters) and the airport’s fire departments on standby.” Shortly before 10 a.m., the flight landed without

incident at the airport and was moved along for inspection to aviation mechanics at Kelowna Flightcraft. Ironically, the plane is part of a search and res-

cue contingent that was in the process of moving into Kelowna. Its task is to continue looking for the four-passenger, locally-based aircraft that went missing

Tuesday evening on a trip from Penticton to Victoria. “(Moving the base of operations) leads to a more efficient search,” said Capt. Quentin Wyne,

a Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre public affairs officer, adding the chain of communication will be made smoother by the transition. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

▼ OSO

Funding strikes sour note Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If there is a local poster child for the devastating cuts to arts organizations, the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra surely fits the bill. After slicing and dicing plans for its 50th anniversary program, but still admirably putting on a unique show for local audiences, this summer the OSO society was dealt a crushing blow. “We just received our B.C. Arts Council grant and it’s a 75 per cent reduction from what we received last year,” said Tim Watson, interim OSO general manager. He has only been in the position for three months, but for the organization its a familiar scenario with a devastating reality. In real terms, the cuts this time mean the OSO will receive only $7,600 instead of the usual $30,000 arts council grant. “It just means you can raise more money or cut expenses,” he said. “We’re bound and determined to make it work, but it doesn’t make it easy.” The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Arts is in a similarly ugly position. Where it would normally get $20,000 from the council, it has been told to expect $7,800 and, though this is only a 60 per cent cut to its regular funding, it is actually in a tighter spot. In addition to being a tiny organization with little fat to trim, the centre is in visual arts and the visual arts are blocked from accessing the new Legacy

funding—a pool of money recently announced for the arts. Those who already have their arts council grants, like the OSO, were to have written letters asking to access the fund. Visual arts organizations, which have yet to officially receive their grants automatically don’t qualify. It’s all part of what the Alternator’s director, Jennifer Pickering, described as an obfuscation of the

IT JUST MEANS YOU CAN RAISE MORE MONEY OR CUT EXPENSES. Tim Watson

true funding path. “It’s like, who are you supposed to believe?” she said. “The government is saying we’re at higher funding levels than ever before. So is it the arts centres that are lying?” For someone who directs one of those centres, the answer is obvious. But for the general public the answer was only really solidified this week. On Monday, Jane Danzo, who heads the B.C. Arts Council, resigned saying it was the only way she could speak out against what the government is doing with its cultural funding. From 2008-09 levels of $19.5 million, there is just $7.9 million left for the council to dole out on

an annual basis for arts organizations to use as operating funding, she told the Globe and Mail. The council was never told about the Legacy Fund money until the announcement, she added. Though it’s meant to offset the affects of the cuts, it ultimately places more of a burden on community programming, according to those who work in the sector. While organizations lose their base operating money—the money that pays to keep the doors open, the buildings running and their staff on a steady paycheque—they will be expected to come up with things like new festivals to access the B.C. Spirit Festivals funding, an Olympic legacy fund that falls within the Legacy Fund pool of money, Pickering explained. The organizations must run the festivals over and above their regular work and find an additional 25 percent in matching funds to chip in, in order to access the cash. At the end of the day, it’s going to mean cuts to staffing at the Alternator but next week it could also mean trouble at its annual general meeting. After three years of trying to fundraise to bolster their ever-dwindling coffers, Pickering says the volunteer base of the organization is burnt out. Not only will the incoming board have to find ways to trim costs and agree to some very difficult budgetary constraints, they may very well be See Arts A5

A KELOWNA firefighters at the scene of a brush fire on Knox Mountain Thursday. The fire, which broke out Wednesday night was quickly contained.

▼ FIRE

Knox Mountain blaze contained Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

No one knows what sparked it, but the brush fire at the base of Knox Mountain offered local fire crews quite a fight late Wednesday night. On arrival at the lower side of the park access road, fire fighters were confronted with a blaze 30 metres by 50 metres in size. “Steep terrain, strong winds and water supply posed some challenges to crews,” said Thomas Doherty, assistant chief of the Kelowna Fire Department. He added that the lay of the land actually helped

his crews contain the blaze. “The fire was located on the lower side of a park access road which served as a natural guard on one side of the fire,” said Doherty. “Quick action by firefighters to build a guard around the fire immediately slowed the spread.” Despite the quick action, the flames were intense enough to require extra hands on deck and Doherty said additional resources were requested . That amounted to two engines, three bush trucks, one safety officer a command unit and one initial attack crew from the Ministry of Forests were at the

scene. The fire was totalycontained by late Wednesday and crews worked throughout the night and into Thursday to douse hotspots, flare-ups and check for spotting. Doherty said no homes were threatened by the blaze and urged the public to stay away from the area while crews removed dangerous trees. While that blaze was being mopped up, fiery conditions continued to leave their mark on the valley. Since Wednesday, the Kamloops Fire Centre has responded to five person-caused wildfires, all of which were contained

at less than one hectare, contributing to the haze across the Interior including in the Okanagan. Winds pushed smoke south and a temperature inversion is holding the smoke in valley bottoms. This fire season, the fire centre has responded to 227 wildfires, well below the ten-year average of 445 wildfires. But the fire danger rating is high to extreme throughout the region. With daytime heating, the inversion is expected to lift somewhat. But there is still an air quality advisory in place. For more information please visit www. bcairquality.ca.

▼ AIDS

Craig, Serwa to chair walk The youngest city councillor, Kevin Craig, and Kelowna’s top skiing sensation, Kelsey Serwa, have been chosen to cochair this year’s annual Kelowna AIDS Walk. Craig, 20, said Thursday he hopes to use his contacts and network to help raise awareness of AIDS in the community and pointed out that one

of his big focuses is building opportunity, a situation often denied those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. “AIDS hinders their opportunity to work in many cases,” said Craig. He added that the illness also takes away the opportunity for sufferers to enjoy the community. Craig noted one of the things he has enjoyed

about the AIDS walk in the past is that it is fun. The 14th annual walk will take place Sept. 19 with Craig and Serwa, also 20, as two of the youngest chairs of the event in its 13-year history. Executive director Daryle Roberts said the walk first began in Kelowna in 1997, when he moved from Vancouver to

in the Valley.” Roberts said people come out to events that have been affected by the illness. He added that HIV is not well-understood among the general population, with different groups at more risk and myths about the illness still circulating.

THERE’S A MISCONCEPTION OUT THERE THAT THERE IS A CURE, BUT THERE IS NO CURE. Daryle Roberts

Roberts noted he was fortunate enough to have a job and a home when diagnosed, where others are not so lucky. He pointed out treatment has advanced in recent years. “In the early ’90s, when I got into this, people were basically diagnosed and told to go home and die.” The AIDS walk will take place in Kelowna on Sept. 19, starting at 9 a.m. from Kerry Park.

“There’s a misconception out there that there is a cure, but there is no cure.” He pointed out medications can only hold the virus at bay. Side-effects from prescribed HIV medications can include strong nausea. Roberts pointed out coping with the effects of the medication demands access to food and clean water, a situation often out of reach for people living on the street.

SIGHTINGS

Beware of bears: CORD They’re coming back! Over the past week, regional district parks services staff in Mission Creek Regional Park have received several reports of bear sightings in the park, along the Mission Creek Greenway and in Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Regional Park. Communications coordinator Bruce Smith said as the higher elevation food sources start to decline and fruit crops ripen in the valley below, this is the time of year that we start to receive more reports of bears in some of our Regional Parks. “When we start getting sightings and staff sees evidence of bears in our parks and along trails, we post signs advising all park users of recent bear activity.” To reduce your chance

of meeting a bear while hiking, he recommended you travel in a group, make noise or carry something that makes noise, such as a bell. “We’ve already noticed some Kokanee starting to return to Mission Creek,” said Smith. “As we get closer to the fall fish spawning season, it’s not unusual for park visitors to encounter bears along local creeks and rivers, as the fish are a plentiful source of food. Be aware that bears fishing for food may not hear you over the noise of the creek water. If you see a bear, give it plenty of space and stay well away from it.” People should respect all bears and anticipate and avoid encounters with them whenever possible. Bears can be ag-

gressive, especially when defending their food or their cubs. Bears also have excellent senses of smell and hearing, and better sight than you might believe. For their safety, dog owners are reminded when in regional parks that their pets must be leashed and kept on trails at all times. provincial conservation officers are advised of the bear sightings and along with regional parks staff, monitor the situation in local parks. As well, residents are being reminded to keep any garbage securely stored on their property and not to put out their garbage cart until the morning of their regular curbside collection. That way you’re not tempting bears or other wildlife.

Arts groups scrambling faced with vacant seats at the table. “It’s a lot of pressure for the volunteer community to operate one of these organizations in a good revenue year,” she said. “Let alone when this is going on.” The Pacific-Association of Artist-Run Centres, meanwhile, is pointing the finger squarely at Danzo’s statements on government trying to manipulate culture. In her own words, Danzo said “The (Arts

Council) Act also specifies that the board support arts and culture through advocacy. “This responsibility is virtually impossible to accomplish because the board’s relationship to government is not atarms-length,” she said. “It has neither its own funding nor its own staff… The only independence the board has from government is defined by the granting process.” A website, Stop BC Arts Cuts, points out this province is only providing $4 per capita to funding arts and culture when

the national average is $26 per capita. The Pacific-Association of Artist Run Centres suggests the provincial government is trying to manipulate culture via these constraints and demands the premier’s office answer for its actions. “It is widely suspected in our community that this interference is an attempt by government to convert the arts and culture in B.C. into a tool to be mobilized for partisan political ends,” a press release from the association states. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Kayaker survives harrowing time Mark Brett CONTRIBUTOR

MARK BRETT/WESTERN NEWS

SHERI ELLIOTT (left) checks the damage to the kayak her friend Myrna Quinn

(background) was paddling when she was struck by a motorboat on Okanagan Lake last week near Sun-Oka Beach.

Injured and struggling to get to the surface from beneath her capsized kayak Myrna Quinn was sure her life was about to end. “I was underwater and I could hear the boat bumping over top of me and the sound of the prop (propeller) and I thought that’s it, this is where it all ends, I’m going to die,” said Quinn recalling the horrific moments immediately after her small watercraft was broadsided by a speedboat on Okanagan Lake last week. “Hearing the prop like that and not knowing how near it is you don’t know if you’re going to get chewed up or what.” Miraculously that didn’t happen although the shredded material on the sides and top of the kayak are chilling evidence of just how close the danger was. And while she survived, she did not escape unhurt. The initial impact of

the large motorboat fractured her lower right leg requiring surgery which will keep her away from her nursing duties at Penticton Regional Hospital for at least a couple of months. The accident happened around 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 12 on the flat, calm waters of Okanagan Lake as Quinn and her friend Sheri Elliott of Summerland were paddling to Pyramid Provincial Park from Sun-Oka Beach. Elliott noticed a green and white boat pulling two people on inner tubes circling them and became increasingly concerned as the vessel was coming closer on each pass. “We went forward a little bit and then Sheri said, ‘I don’t think he sees us,’ and we started waving our paddles and screaming but to no avail,” said Quinn. “He did a couple of quick zig zag moves and then locked on and was coming straight for us. “He hit her (Elliott’s) boat at the tail and pushed her out of the way and then hit me knocking the kayak over counter clockwise.” Elliott also vividly recalled those terrifying

seconds before impact. “All I remember is this great, deep V green hull coming for us,” she said. “I heard it hit and I didn’t even want to turn around because I didn’t know what I was going to find, but I did. Myrna’s head was already out of the water with her arms wrapped around the back of the kayak.” Now, more than a week later, the pair are still emotionally wrestling with the same two questions many others have. “I really don’t know how I lived…why I lived,” said Quinn. “I guess I’m OK now but there are moments when I still see the boat coming at me and just know that I’m going to get hit and probably die.” Right after the accident two nearby boats raced to their aid and one man quickly jumped in the water to help Quinn who was in severe pain as a result of her broken leg. The driver of the offending vessel also turned around and either he or someone on his boat called 911. “He pulled up and had 150 excuses why he hit us and said he would buy us 10 new kayaks,” said Elliott. “But I lost it and started yelling at him.

said you’re worried about kayaks when you nearly killed two people.” Shortly after that the boat disappeared but not before someone was able to get what is believed to be the driver’s first name and that he may operate a business in West Kelowna. According to Cpl. Rick Dellebuur of Penticton RCMP, the Kelowna detachment was advised but despite the available information have not had any success in locating the individual. The officer is asking anyone who may have witnessed the accident or have knowledge about the boat’s driver to contact their detachment or Crime j Stoppers. “What’s really upsetting is that he (boat operator) made no attempt to help us at all, he didn’t even say he was sorry,” said Quinn. “An accident? Absolutely, but it’s hard to believe someone could be so uncaring and have no compassion after what he did.” Both she and Elliott agreed it’s ironic someone could be so unaware of their surroundings especially in light of recent boating accidents and the government push for greater responsibility on the part of boaters. For now, Quinn is counting her blessings which were emphasized by a gift of flowers from her sister in law with a little happy birthday pin attached. “I didn’t understand at first because it wasn’t really my birthday, but then I thought for a moment and it actually was my birthday. “I’m still alive.” Penticton Western News

Friends mourn the death of ‘water-shy’ man in Kalamalka Lake tKathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna’s close-knit Jamaican community thas been shaken by news that one of theirs died this week, and are asking questions about what led the water-shy Kelroy Munroe into the depths of Kalamalka Lake. “Everyone is still in shock. He was not a swimmer, we couldn’t get him into a pool, much less a lake,� said Krys Sy, a close friend who, along with Munroe and eight other Jamaicans, moved to Kelowna in 2007 to take part in an Okanagan Colrlege exchange program. t “Everyone who knows thim knows he wouldn’t jump in. He’s not a water person.� Mounties announced Thursday that it was Munroe, 25, who drowned tin the local lake while out with friends on a Tuesday boating trip. Utilizing side scanning sonar and a remote controlled underwater vehicle equipped with a camera, Munroe’s body was located in approximatetly 113 feet of water and brought to the surface and ultimately to shore. Witnesses told police tthat Munroe had jumped into the lake. r “We want answers where this is concerned,� said Sy. “We’re not saying that the report we got was a lie. Anything could have happened.

issued orange jumpsuit, the man who is accused of killing Brittney Lee Irving appeared in a Kelowna courtroom via videolink, Thursday morning. It was an uneventful appearance, but also the last time Joelon David Atish Verma, 29, will be seen until Sept. 30 when the timeline of his trial should finally be revealed. In the meantime there are no changes to Verma’s conditions. In court Verma said he would agree to the nocontact order that forbids him from speaking with a

number of individuals— among them friends and family. It also discussed that the self-confessed former Independent Soldier who was arrested June 25, only recently attained the legal council of Calgary lawyer Kim Ross and that will help move the process along, so friends and family of both Verma and Irving can get their questions answered. While police were reluctant to release many details, they’ve said they believe Irving, 24, left a local hotel where she was

staying April 6, in order to meet with Verma and sell him a “large quantity” of marijuana. It was the last day she was seen by family and was reported missing to police April 7. That’s also the day her SUV was found abandoned on Philpott Road, making way for a flurry of speculation about her drug connections and fate. Nearly two months later, on May 25, rumours were laid to rest when Irving’s body was found. Mounties won’t disclose the exact location

—although they say it wasn’t the same area her car was found—and subsequent autopsy results indicated her death was a homicide. While there is little new information available, the rumour mill has been sparked and those visiting the Brittney Lee Irving page have said they believe Verma is soon to be released on bail. It was made clear Thursday that the matter would have to be raised in a higher court, and nothing has been scheduled. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

In-custody death probed by cops from Central Saanich police Service Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The death of Brandt Zimmer, 40, will now be investigated by the Central Saanich Police Service, independent of local Mounties. Zimmer made headlines last week when he died in police custody following a bizarre outburst that prompted patrons and employees of a Rutland

gaming centre to call 911. “Witnesses reported that (Zimmer) wearing only his underwear, was showing obvious signs of distress, screaming, jumping and smashing video games,” said Sgt. Ann Morrison in a press release, adding he was foaming at the mouth and complaining of shortness of breath. “Witnesses attempted to calm the man down

with negative results. They were very concerned and called for help.” Police arrived on scene and arrested Zimmer for mischief and when they recognized he was in medial distress, they had him transported to hospital. Once there he died, but because he had been arrested before being transported, police policy states that an investigation must be conducted.

“The Central Saanich Police Service recognizes that this is a very difficult time for the family of Mr. Zimmer,” said deputy chief, Clayton Pecknold in a press release. “The investigation is being conducted in collaboration with the B.C. Coroners Service and will thoroughly examine all circumstances surrounding the death.” Zimmer died Aug. 15.

E

ven if it’s a steep climb, the views and the variety of wildflowers make it worthwhile to hike up above the valley, particularly on hot summer days when the elevation gained means cooler temperatures as well. And, there are lots of hikes to local mountains around this valley, from the lower-elevations ones such as in Rose Valley Regional Park, the McDougal Rim Trail, Knox Mountain’s trails or the Crawford Trails to the

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves higher-elevation ones like the Trans Canada Trail through Myra Canyon (at least the trip up is by car instead of by foot), the Divide Lake Trail in Okanagan Mountain Park, the High Rim Trail between Highway 33 and Vernon,

and the extension of it, across Highway 33 and Mission Creek, the Okanagan Highlands Trail. I recently hiked up the back side of Little White Mountain along the Okanagan Highlands Trail, although we didn’t quite go as far as its 2,000-metre peak. There were grand views out over Canyon Lakes, the McCulloch Lake group and down to Okanagan Lake in the valley below, as well as of the Monashee Mountains to the east.

Help is available. All day. Every day.

Masses of colourful pink heather scented the rarified air as we climbed up towards the peak, and creamy wild rhododendrons bloomed along trail, along with yellow arnica, red paintbrush, bracted lousewort or wood betony, the last of the season’s delicate queen’s cup, spotted saxifrage, bog orchids and lupine— just to note a few I recognized or could identify. There’s a joyful stream that bubbles over the rocks along much of the trail, although it goes

underground periodically, resurfacing in surprising spots. In others you can hear it echoing far beneath you, under a pile of boulders. Parts of the trail are extremely steep, but this summer a crew from Cabin Forestry Services created some switchbacks to lessen the pitch and cleaned up and marked the trail. It was part of a project for which the Central Okanagan Naturalists’ Club received a grant of $132,173 from the federal

government through the National Trails Coalition, for work on the Okanagan Highlands Trail. Last year, Cabin Forestry crews cleaned up and restored the High Rim Trail under a similar funding arrangement. This year’s effort was focussed on the section between Mission Creek and Chute Lake.

an Falls Forest Service Road, otherwise known as the 201. We reached that by the Myra Forest Service Road, but there are a number of options, including turning onto it from Highway 33. The trailhead is in what appears to be a gravel pit, just before you reach Canyon Lakes on the Canyon Lakes Forest Service Road. Allow four or five hours for the hike up and back, though it’s quite a bit quicker coming down than hoofing it up. You probably climb 500 metres or so. Don’t forget your camera and dress for cooler weather up there than in the valley bottom. It can be quite cold, even in summer at that elevation, and it’s not easy to predict from down below what the weather will be like up there. Although this trail is not included in the recent reprint of Okanagan Trips and Trails, by myself and Murphy Shewchuk, the others mentioned are. A map and a gps are also good companions when hiking.

The rules regarding payment to directors on strata councils

W

hat can you tell me about strata council members who get paid for being on council? Answer: The Strata Property Act permits a corporation to pay directors for their service on council providing the payment is approved in advance in the budget, the bylaws, or by a 75 per cent vote resolution passed at a special general meeting. A strata corporation that decides to pay council directors should consult an accountant to ensure that payments comply with the Canada Revenue Agency tax provisions.

vate. In fact the opposite is true. Condos by definition are communities and corporations, where neighbours are also shareholders. Everyone has an interest, especially when it

comes to finances. The adage, “when in doubt, disclose, disclose, disclose” should become the golden rule for all corporations. The Act stipulates that all council directors must act in the strata’s best interests and they must

seem to be an unmanageable mystery how a council director can be paid by strata fees without members being aware, when the payment would have to be approved in the first place in the budget, or by a 75 per cent vote resolution.

If the CRA determines that payment as employment income, the strata corporation will be responsible, among other things, to remit source-deducted income tax. If the corporation fails to collect and remit any income tax due, the council members may be personally liable for the amounts due plus interest and penalties. Often in these situations council members will merely call themselves “independent contractors” to avoid all the hassles associated with employer-employee arrangements. However, if the method to pay directors falls within CRA definitions, liability will not be avoided. The StrataScene reader, who is related to the paid council director, also wanted to know if the amount of payment had to be disclosed to members of the strata. She thought that the amount of payment didn’t have to be disclosed because it was “private in nature.” For starters, when it comes to the business of operating a strata corporation, few things are pri-

Local dog makes an Oso cute calendar cover It’s the year of Oso. The seven-year-old maltese/bichon mix has become a local celebrity in Kelowna after winning the coveted cover position in the BCSPCA’s 2011 Animal Lovers calendar. Oso was rescued five years ago from a shelter in Chicago by Carlos and Leslie Bermudez. “At the time of his adoption, he had a somewhat unpleasant appearance and a disposition to match, most likely as a result of abuse and neglect,� said Carlos Bermudez. “Through TLC and patience, he was quickly transformed into a very affectionate, handsome, active and happy dog.� Bermudez was surfing on eBay when he came across the BCSPCA cal-

endar auction. When he realized the proceeds from the auction would go directly to the SPCA, he knew he wanted to be a part of this contest. “I put in a bid solely with the intention of driving the price higher. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted to win and that, whatever the price, it would be money well spent,� he said. At that point, he would not be outbid. Bermudez, the president of the Village of Kettle Valley, is no stranger to the SPCA in Kelowna. “Carlos and his family approached us when they arrived in Kelowna with a keen interest in not only contributing financially

but also volunteering their time,� explained Marni Adams, regional development officer for the BCSPCA. Adams said the Village of Kettle Valley is a gold sponsor for the 2010 Scotiabank and BCSPCA

Paws for a Cause. “The Village of Kettle Valley believes strongly in giving back to the community, our support of the BCSPCA Kelowna was largely born out of the love for animals I share with the rest of the Kettle Valley team,â€? said Bermudez. “Once you realize how many animals are victims of cruelty and understand that these animals are defenseless and voiceless, the call to action is difficult to ignore.â€? The money that Bermudez spent to win the calendar auction will go toward this year’s Scotiabank & BCSPCA Paws for a Cause‌Walk for the Animals. In Kelowna, the walk will be held on Sept.12 at City Park.

“We have a full day of fun activities planned for the whole family,� said Adams. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with the threekilometre dog walk starting at 10:30 a.m. and the one-kilometre furry scurry at 11 a.m. When participants arrive back at the park, there will be a barbeque featuring SPCA-certified hotdogs from Vale Farms, the Kettle Valley Kids Zone complete with face-painting, crafts and a bounce house, plus many vendors selling their wares and, most importantly, lots of fun activities for your favourite furry friend.

A heavy smoke warning was issued Tuesday for the area between Houston, Burns Lake and Prince George. Air quality and wildfire smoke advisories have been issued for Kamloops, Prince George, Quesnel, Vanderhoof, Williams Lake, Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Terrace, Kitimat, the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District. The Cariboo region had already lost more than 123,000 hectares of forest to fire as of this week, which is several times more than the entire province in some recent years. Fishing lodges were evacuated in the Dean River area of the Central Coast on Tuesday, and Highway 20 from the Cariboo to the Central Coast remained closed due to a fast-moving fire on both sides that forced its closure Sunday night. Evacuation orders are in effect for five Nazko First Nations reserves, parts of the Cariboo Regional District, as well as alerts and orders for the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District.

t’s no mystery why the province recently decided to try its hand at government sponsored online gambling. With more than $100 million a year being spent by British Columbians online at similar sites, our cash-strapped leaders decided to replenish the coffers the quick and easy way. Of course, the move was justified with a “they’re doing it anyway so we might as well benefit instead of sending all that money somewhere else, and by the way think

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer of all the charities we can help with that money,” stance. Not surprisingly, this is an about-face from campaign rhetoric before taking office when the Liberals said they would stop the expansion of gambling in the province,

which they claimed was spreading addiction and harming families. The lure of cash was too enticing and instead of halting or slowing, gambling revenues have greatly increased during the Liberals’ stay. We now bring in more than $1 billion a year from this industry and give a paltry $120 million (12 per cent) of that to non-profits. Although it is financially tempting, I believe an ethical barrier has been crossed when it comes to government sponsored online gambling.

Pathological gambling affects one and a half percent of Canadians with numbers on the rise as gambling becomes more readily available. Another two and a half per cent are considered problem gamblers. This addiction brings with it a host of other problems and exacerbates issues for those already struggling with other addictions and difficulties. Studies show a strong association be-

tween pathological gambling and substance abuse as well as other psychiatric disorders. Depression and bipolar disorder very commonly co-exist with gambling addiction with roughly 17 per cent of pathological gamblers experiencing bipolar disorder. Since losing money is inevitable for problem gamblers, these individuals usually end up in desperate financial difficulty as a result of their addiction. Unfortunately, along with this comes a much higher than average suicide rate among gambling addicts. A study conducted through Gamblers Anonymous found 48 per cent of problem gamblers experienced suicidal thoughts. Another study said 18 per cent attempt suicide. Given the many individuals and families whose lives are ruined by this disease, I find it a very poor choice for our government to be making it easier and easier for people to put themselves in harm’s way. A government claiming to care about the health and well-being of its citizens should not be in the business of profiting from their vulnerabilities.

Study shows probiotics can help ease the problem of colic

hearts of parents of an infant more than colic. It is stressful not only for the child but also for the parent who has to bear witness to it.

Although chiropractic has been demonstrated to be very successful in treating colic, I would draw your attention to a study published in this

month’s Journal, Pediatrics. In it, Dr. Francesco Savino of the University of Turin, Italy may offer some exciting news. Colic affects between

10 and 25 per cent of infants with its cause is still largely debated. It is characterized by relentless crying longer than three hours for three or more

The intention of the study was to determine how well a bacteria, called L ruteri, aides in the relationship of the gut and the bacterial flora that exists there. In his study, he took 50 breast-fed infants between two and 16 weeks old, half receiving the probiotic bacteria while the other half received a placebo. The bacteria was administered for 21 days. The probiotic group received five drops of the bacteria, once a day, 30 minutes prior to their morning feed.

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel and function and direct results on visceral pain, both of which may induce a calming effect and reduced crying time of infants. These findings provide important insights into the role of aberrant bacterial flora in the pathogenesis of infantile colic and the potential to overcome this with probiotic supplementation.” Essentially, he suggests colic may be due to an immature intestinal bacterial flora causing fermentation of sugars within the intestine and an excessive intra-intestinal pressure causing pain. By normalizing the gastric and intestinal flora, the baby can digest his or her nutrients without dysfunction. This matter of probiotics in health care is going to be something you’re going to hear an awful lot about in the next 10 years as it emphasizes the importance of proper intestinal bacteria that aids in the digestion and absorption of nutrients. As an aside, there’s also a tremendous amount of research with respect to the use of probiotics in diseases such as Crohn’s and irritable bowel syndrome. These probiotics are readily available at your health food store. But keep in mind that if your child is crying for prolonged periods of time, it is best to see a health practitioner to rule out any other genesis of the child’s pain.

Paula Findlay hot heading to the annual Apple Triathlon Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

To say Paula Findlay is in fine form heading into the Pushor Mitchell Apple Triathlon would be understating the obvious. The 21-year-old Edmontonian is fresh off back-to-back wins on the ITU World Championship Series as she takes aim at yet another victory and a Canadian title this weekend in Kelowna. Findlay held off a world-class field to win a WCS event July 24 in London, England, then last Sunday followed up with another victory in Kitzbuehel, Austria. The amiable triathlete now has four wins in her breakout season, including victories in Mexico and Quebec. Findlay is both thrilled and surprised with her latest results. “It’s been pretty crazy, winning the last two races,” Findlay said this week from Victoria. “Those races are world championship races, so you have Olympians and world championship-calibre athletes. Just to be able to run against them is a

great experience…to win was really unexpected.” Findlay is well-acquainted with the Kelowna Apple, having won both the junior elite and women’s elite national titles in 2008. That year, several of Canada’s top women racers were in Beijing for the Summer Olympics and didn’t compete in the Okanagan. This weekend, with some tougher competition expected, Findlay is taking nothing for granted. “Kirtsen Sweetland (Victoria) will be here and she’s always a tough competitor, and there are four or five other girls who will give me a run,” said Findlay. “It’s not a guarantee. The Canadian championship is something I really want, but I know I’ll have to run a great race.” Findlay’s recent run of success has convinced her to revamp her plans for the rest of the season. She initially intended on competing in the under-23 worlds this fall, but will instead compete in the elite women’s world championships Sept. 12 in Budapest, Hungary.

TWO-TIME Olympic medalist Simon Whitfield will be back to defend his senior men’s title this weekend at the Kelowna Apple Triathlon. As for returning to Kelowna to race—the fifth time since 2003—Findlay continues to hold a special place for the Apple Triathlon. “As long as I’m in the country at the time of the race, I love coming to Kelowna,” said Findlay. “It’s a beautiful place to race, and it’s close enough to my hometown that my family can come

here, stay in a hotel near the course, and be with me for the weekend. It’s nice that my parents can see me race in Canada.” Adding star quality to the 2010 field at the Apple is 2002 Olympic gold medalist Simon Whitfield. The defending Apple Triathlon champion first raced in Kelowna in 1992. The 35-year-old Whitfield is expected to be challenged Sunday by World Cup teammate Kyle Jones of Oakville, Ont. As for the presence of both Paula Findlay and Simon Whitfield at this year’s race, organizers are understandably excited. “I would consider Paula the hottest female racer in the world today, so that’s exciting for us and for fans of triathlon,” said Apple Triathlon Society president Richard Montgomery. “With Simon, you

More than 1,800 competitors are expected for the junior, age group and elite triathlons this weekend, smashing the current

record of 1,603 set last year. “With the numbers continuing to go up, it puts pressure on us, but it’s a good kind of pressure…we know the event is growing and getting better,” said Montogomery. “It’s exciting for us with all the national attention we’re getting.”

Okanagan Sun’s Scheurwater hones in on more records Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As long as Matt Scheurwater continues to pull on the orange and brown jersey of the Okanagan Sun, few pass receiving records will be safe. The five-year veteran, who already possesses a number of team and conference standards, is poised to make several more assaults on junior football’s record manuals. Already the all-time club leader in receptions (151) and receiving yards (2,757), the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Calgary product is on course to soon eclipse both marks in the B.C. Football Conference. Scheurwater needs 13 receptions and 131 yards to add two more conference marks to his already teeming football résumé. Scheurwater admits hearing his name mentioned in the same breath as former Sun and BCFC standouts such as Jay Christensen, Jeff Schieman and Aaron David is both humbling and a huge

honour. Still, Scheurwater does his best to put personal accomplishments in perspective by placing team goals ahead of his own. “It’s quite an honour and I’ve been very lucky,” Scheurwater said. “I wasn’t really aware that these records were coming up until someone with the team told me about it. “But I really don’t focus on it too much,” he added. “They’re really just numbers. I’d rather see the team win, go to the B.C. final, then win a national championship. The records are nice, they’re a bonus, but winning is what’s most important.” The Canadian Junior Football League record for all-time receiving yardage held by Saskatoon’s Andrew Busby, is also well within Scheurwater’s reach. If he remains on his current pace, the national benchmark of 3,109 yards could fall to Scheurwater by the seventh or eighth game of the regular season.

Scheurwater already holds the single season conference record for receiving yards of 1,117 set in 2008. That same year he caught 57 passes to establish a new single-season team record. Sun offensive coordinator Tony Lindsay has watched Scheurwater’s growth and development right from Day 1 with the Sun back in 2006. Lindsay had a hunch the then-slender receiver would catch some balls, but couldn’t have known just how big those numbers would become five seasons later. “Matt came to his first camp with a good attitude, he didn’t have a chip on his shoulder and he was eager to learn,” said Lindsay. “The kid was young, he barely had any shoulders when here came here, but he always worked hard in the gym and in dryland training, and he’s grown into a man. “He’s not the fastest or most physically-gifted player, but he’s as fundamentally sound as he can be,” Lindsay said.

“When you coach him something, he absorbs and never forgets it. That’s one of his great attributes.” Scheurwater credits much of his success in junior football to his Sun coaches and teammates of the past 4 1/2 years. An intense will to succeed has also played a vital role. “I always try to play with heart, and I guess it’s just the desire I have to try and be the best I can,” he said. “I’ve never been the fastest or biggest guy, but I’ve worked hard on learning the game, how to read defenses, and finding the holes. Things have worked out pretty well for me.” Scheurwater briefly considered bypassing his final year of junior football to play in the CIS with the University of Calgary Dinosaurs. But he opted to finish what he began in Kelowna, a decision that comes with no regrets “I just decided I’m going to start and finish with the Sun and to see if we

OKANAGAN SUN receiver Matt Scheurwater is on pace to set at least two more B.C. Football Conference records this season. can win a title here,” he said. “It would be a good thing for my résumé, to help me move on to the next level. I’ll see if I can get a shot at a junior college in the States

next year, then work towards my goal of playing the CFL. That’s been my dream for a long time and playing with the Sun has really been a big part of that.” In four games this sea-

son, Scheurwater had 17 catches for 403 yards and three majors. On Saturday, Scheurwater and the Sun (3-1) will visit the winless Chilliwack Huskers (0-4). whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Tall tales about a little dog from a big-hearted man Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Flipping through James Murray’s website, one immediately wonders whether this storyteller isn’t prone to tall tales. With a picture of his beloved dog Duff in his arms, the veteran community newspaper reporter has posted a story—one last story—about the faithful companion he calls his friend. “For 22 years, Duff, we walked that trail together, side by side,” it reads, “though it seems more often than not, that you were running up ahead, stopping every now and then to wait for me to catch up.” Twenty-two years, one thinks, is an awfully long time for any mangy mutt to live, but as the story unfolds, it’s soon evident this is no garden variety Rover. Sure enough, when Murray gets on the phone for this interview, he confirms his border collie/sheltie cross did live for over 20 years. He only passed away a year ago and, as extraordinary as that feat may be, the path Duff’s life is taking now is perhaps even more unusual. His dedicated owner is still regaling audiences throughout the B.C. Interior with tales—short or tall—about their time

CONTRIBUTED

JAMES MURRAY is known for the columns he writes about his dog Duff and the many hours they spent fishing in their home community of Salmon Arm. together and his musings have raised more than $50,000 for a private Salmon Arm food bank. A longtime photographer and column writer for the Salmon Arm Observer, the newsman has become something of a storytelling folk

legend for his in-person musings on life with his mutt and, just five years into this new storytelling venture, he’s also found himself a big name sponsor. After the fast food coffee chain Tim Hortons picked up 1,000 tickets

to one of his shows, spreading them around to Salmon Arm seniors, he managed to wrangle a multiyear contract to keep the shows rolling, saying he thoroughly loves bring a smile to the faces he meets in the local seniors’ homes which book him. Several years back Murray was basically conned into doing his first show by Salmon Arm’s theatre set, he says, who asked him to come tell a few of his stories between shows. He had written a column on what he would give Duff for Christmas if he could, and the little yarn became an instant sensation. After years by his side, and all of the lifelong gifts he had given him, Murray explains in the story that he would take the cataracts from the dog’s eyes and put a spring in his step, if he could. He was soon sending clippings to a plethora of the Observer’s regular readers and hearing his story had gone out in Christmas cards to friends and loved ones around the world. CBC picked it up and his stories took on a life of their own from there. “They’re little stories about life that bring back a lot of memories for people,” he explains. “When I tell my stories, (the audience) is thinking about some dog they had 40

years ago.” Murray’s musings air on CBC at Christmas and he has won the Jack Webster Award for his work in journalism, as well as several Outdoor Writers of Canada Awards. He has also given writing workshops and says the trick to his success is that he tells his story as it is in his head—not as previously written on paper. “That way there’s no mistakes,” he explains, relaying a conversation he had with a fan about the difference between himself and CBC storyteller Stuart McLean, of The Vinyl Café. McLean is known for reading his weekly tales to his audience. Murray will be in Kelowna this Thursday, Aug. 26, to explain his process and the route he took to his success. Speaking to the Okanagan Institute at the Bohemian Café from 5 to 6 p.m., Murray might even tell the fans in his audience a thing or two about his new beast of choice. Contacted by the SPCA this year, he was asked to look in on a small husky pup which had been severely beaten. It didn’t take long for the animal, named Arlo for folk singer Arlo Guthrie, to join the Murray home. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

End-of-summer movies coming now to local theatres

I

t would not be the end of summer without a spoof movie. This year the target is the Twilight series and the current infatuation with the blood-sucking undead with Vampires Suck. It seems that this generation of spoof movies are not on the same level as classics like Airplane and Hot Shots, but the ribbing it gives the Twilight series may make it worth a watch. Plus it stars Ken Jeong who I love in the TV show Community and who stood out in movies like The Hangover and Role Models. Also opening this weekend is Nanny McPhee Returns, the sequel to the 2005 film which was a minor hit. Best described as a twisted Mary Poppins, Emma

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Thompson returns as the title character, a magical nanny who appears at the door of a harried young mother and her mischievous children. She also discovers that the children are fighting a war of their own against two spoiled city cousins who have just moved in.

residents. Piranha 3D features an ensemble cast of actors including Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames and Dina Meyer, but it is the inclusion of Christopher Lloyd and Jaws star Richard Dreyfuss which proves that the

tongue is firmly planted in the cheek. Rumour has it that the filmmakers even tried to get Joe Dante and James Cameron, the respective directors of the first two Piranha movies, to do a cameo. Apparently both were interested, but Cam-

Tantalus–La ‘crème de la crème’ of Canada Tantalus has become one of the Okanagan’s most recognized winery labels and is regarded by many as the benchmark for fine Rieslings. One would expect by the power and range of their powerhouse brand that Tantalus would be a huge operation, so it’s a wonderful surprise that they are exquisitely midsized, stunningly modern with their new tasting room and exude the warmth that comes from a tightly knit crew of pas-

Heartfelt lyrics breath a story into each song Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR

If you’re an avid follower of the Kelowna music scene then it is more than likely that you’ve seen or heard of Thomas Kjorven. He is a well-rounded musician, singer/songwriter, as well as a producer who records all of his music in his home studio. Kjorven’s sound is all his own as his smooth vocals accompany his soulful, jazzy piano stylings. Kjorven is fresh off the high from the Aug. 10 release of his new selftitled album, which features Danielle Mueller who makes two appearances. From the strong opening track Hold Me Down, right to the last, Kjorven’s music is as easy listening as it gets. His catchy open-mic hit Bad Boy is also currently on rotation on Q103. I snagged Kjorven to answer a few questions about the new album, life, and his future plans. Question: You just had the CD release party at Cush for your new album. How did it go? Kjorven: The release party was a huge success. What a great night. The place was packed with people who wanted to hear live music and I was blown away with how, when I was playing, everyone was listening and hanging on my every note. Thank you to everyone that came. The whole vibe of the evening was exciting. Q: Can you tell me about the new album? TK: The new album is another chapter on my musical journey. This one is technically my fourth album I have produced out of my home bedroom studio but this one

is the first body of work I am promoting and doing something with. Every song on this album is genuine and stimulating lyrically and musically. It’s an album you can play from start to finish while driving or have playing in the background while you have dinner. It keeps your head bobbing from start to finish with soulful, heartfelt lyrics breathing a new story with each song. Q: Where do you pull your inspiration from? TK: I pull inspiration from everything around me, musically I am influ-

enced greatly by blues, jazz, soul, folk and pretty much anything that I can feel a genuine soul and emotion behind. I love music that can take you from your present emotional or mental state and take you to a new world or state even just for a few minutes. I rarely write completely autobiographically, but I definitely pull from my experiences. Even when writing about something personal I try not to explain too much detail, rather just leave it open for interpretation so the listeners can

relate it to their own experiences. I find a song is more effective emotionally when you allow the listener to feel the story rather than explaining it to them. Q: How has Alero Music Group helped your career? TK: Alero Music Group has been one of the best things that has happened in my musical career. Ange Alero and Darnell Toth are a great team. They are motivated, and extremely passionate about what they do. They both have amazing business and marketing minds and know how to make things happen in this vast and hard to crack music industry. I have struggled over the years with knowing how to promote and market myself and they have completed the circle for me and it’s so amazing having a team like this believe in me and what I am doing and then actually do what they say they are going to do. They are going to be extremely

successful and I am honoured to be a part of their journey. Q: Do you plan on taking your new album on tour (or do you have any plans for the near future)? TK: I will be taking this album on tour, I am working out a schedule for the fall and winter when the landscape season starts to slow down. I play every Thursday at Cush Supper Club, and am also playing at the Green Room on Friday Aug. 21. Come out and enjoy some live Kelowna music and keep an eye out for other gigs around town. ••• Kjorven’s newest album, along with his previous two, is available on iTunes.

Make wearing lifejackets mandatory

I

n a community like ours, where the focus of summer fun is often on the lake, water safety should be paramount. In recent days we have seen again how dangerous it can be on the water even on the sunniest warm-weather days. But it does not have to be that way. Like automobile safety, with its past campaigns to make seatbelts and other safety equipment in cars and trucks mandatory,

similar rules should be made for boats and people who operate and travel in them. The law that says there must be enough lifejackets for everyone aboard a boat does not go far enough. The law should make it mandatory to wear the lifejackets that it states must be on board. Having a lifejacket on the boat when you are in the water is like having no lifejacket at all. If you are not wearing it, it will not save your life.

MAIN SWITCHBOARD

There is a reason bicycle riders have to wear helmets when out riding, they help reduce the risk of serious head injury should the rider fall off and hit the ground. Wearing a lifejacket on a boat would be a similar safety measure that could help keep people safe when boating. The RCMP currently patrol the lake and when they stop boaters the check for an adequate number of life jackets is routine. Making sure they are

being worn would not add to that policing effort if the boat is being checked anyway. Local lakes are a wonderful resource from a recreational point of view, but the danger of drowning is very real and, unfortunately as we saw this week, accidents do happen. Anything that can be done to reduce the risk should be done. After all, if the use of safety equipment is mandatory on land, why not make it mandatory on the water too?

Return illegal migrants to their country of origin To the editor: There is something fundamentally wrong with a system that encourages queue jumping. When people enter our home by breaking in through the back door, why are they given preferential treatment over law-abiding immigrants and legitimate refugees who respectfully ring the front door bell and patiently wait to

be admitted? The solution seems obvious: The immediate return of all blatantly illegal (economic) migrants back to their country of origin. Sure, I realize the problem is more complicated than that, but didn’t we just spend over a billion dollars on the G8/G20 conferences to solve global problems? Here is an opportunity

to demonstrate that all that expensive face-toface shmoozing can actually generate a dividend. How bad will the illegal trafficking of humans have to get before our governments become proactive?

Another senior who feels ripped off by banks To the editor: I read Mr. Forney’s letter to the editor regarding the standard of living for seniors like myself (Senior Feels Like He’s Being Ripped Off, Aug. 8 Capital News) and when he mentioned banks, it struck a chord as I was in the middle of composing a letter to my bank. What got me started was that I read in the McLean’s July 5, 2010 issue that Mr. Gordon Nixon, CEO Royal Bank of Canada, had the third highest take home pay in Canada for the year 2007 in the amount of $44.2 million. My main income is from an American an-

Needless to say, my income is now reduced because of the high Canadian dollar and I even lose money on my American cheque because of the bank fee for the conversion. It seems to me that many seniors feel they are being taxed beyond their means and when banks pay minimal interest on investments, while at the same time extracting small fees at every opportunity, the fact that a CEO can take home millions annually is beyond my sense of justice.

Spiritual healer uncomfortable with Browne To the editor: I am a spiritual follower, and a healer, having obtained my training in England where this belief is very accepted. When Sylvia Browne first appeared on the Montel show, I did watch quite regularly, and actually bought some of her books. However, it soon became apparent that Sylvia was definitely in it for the money. I did not like the way

she treated the audience as if they were totally stupid because they did not grasp what she was saying the first time around. I found very little compassion for the people seeking help from her. Then the amount of money she was charging became a very large point of unease with me. In spiritualism, the beliefs are simple—if you are granted any type of so-

called powers, whether it is as a medium who can receive messages from our loved ones who have crossed over, or a healer who can assist others with pain, you are still only the channel for this. All things still come from God, as I call Him. Others have different views on this but I still feel there is only one God, by whatever name we wish to use. All gifts come from

Him. So, how can you charge unbelievably high fees, or indeed money at all, for something you are given for someone else? You are the messenger. That is all. And your gifts should be used only for the benefit of the people who seek you out, or for which you are asked to give help. It distresses me that people like Sylvia have

amassed millions of dollars from the public in the name of spiritualism. People, as (columnist Jennifer Smith) pointed out, are usually not able to afford daily life expenses, never mind contributing to her fortune. Thank you for putting my feelings into your words.

admit to that ‘gut feeling’, ‘sixth sense’, or nudgings from our ‘conscience’, which is our God-given guide. Sylvia published a book solely on how one can acquaint themselves with their guide. Her lifelong spiritual reverence drew her into theological research and studies, earning her various degrees, and a successful teaching career. In Sylvia’s climb to her psychic notoriety, she agreed to being tested by being hooked up to the latest technologies, and stunned the doctors and scientists with her inexplicable ability to deeptrance, allowing Francine to channel in and converse with notable differences of character. Through Sylvia’s writings, my spirituality has strengthened; ending my search for answers through the many conflicting and damaging religions of today. Her book, The Truth About Psychics, enlightens readers of the basic beliefs on every religion and spiritual be-

liefs in today’s times—the unbiased research all done for us. For nay-sayers who dismiss any concept of a loving Creator, and for answers to world phenomena that neither scientists nor clerics can explain, Sylvia’s Secrets and Mysteries of the World, is a page turner. In the book Past Lives–Future Healing, we learn about the cell memories our spirit carries into our re-incarnations, sometimes with inexplicable phobias that, once found, can be resolved. Are we not already aware that our spirit lives on after death, that it never sleeps? It is the spirit that Sylvia is able to connect to when reading for a client. Many of her case files, along with follow-up letters of appreciation fill her book called, Insight. Sylvia’s psychic detection of the source of one’s ailment and channeledin knowledge of specific doctors to see has saved many a life. Unfortunately, and according to God’s

divine plan, despite Sylvia’s gifts, she’s unable to foretell her own fate in any area of her life. Like the rest of us, we’re on this Earth to test the mettle of our souls, with every challenge meant to be a lesson for learning. Sylvia has held nothing back in her books, but rather has shared her life, her struggles, her early difficulties in discovering and finally accepting her multi-faceted psychic abilities. At our fingertips we have her years of theological research, and the ageless wisdoms of

‘Unbiased research done for us’ in Browne’s books To the editor: Re: Jennifer Smith’s column: Psychic Can Turn Over a Dollar, Aug. 13 Capital News. There are many skeptics like yourself who sadly voice their cynical views on theosophical psychics without having read any of their books, nor held any interest in hearing what phenomena exists beyond what we experience with our five senses in this life. Sylvia Browne repeatedly explains in her books how she grew into the awareness of being gifted with psychic abilities, which at such a young age her cherished grandmother was fortunately around to help her understand. She learned that this was an inherited gift from 300 years back in her psychic ancestry. She also became acquainted with her lifetime spirit guide, Francine, who has been the main contributor in Sylvia’s work. We each have a spirit guide, but even those who are unaware do often

her spirit guide. Her wry humor, her composure amidst the chaos of this world, and her compassion show the love that’s in her heart for mankind. Foremost, Sylvia strives to enlighten us of the love God holds for all of us, in all places of worship, and to hold onto the promises He gave us. In this age when it’s most needed, would He not want us to have spiritual prophets among us to quell our doubts and fears as was given mankind centuries ago? June Turner, Kelowna

NUTSHELL

Shelley Nicholl “deliberately barren.” Ouch. Some have suggested maybe she should get married to, you know, further her political career. Those are people who apparently don’t realize that she’s already got the top job. She responded to the marriage suggestion with one of her typical, sharp, intelligent quips. She said she should no more marry to get votes than any female in a job should marry to get a promotion. That’s the right answer, but in an election where every tiny vote can make a difference, that’s a tough stance. She knows she’s not a strong choice for many male voters in her relatively conservative country. What would be the big deal to pop a few flowers in her hair and head to the court house with her mate? That’s a ridiculous reason to tag a vote to, of

Heaven knows we don’t want a weak or unmanly First Gent, but he does have to be able to take second place with dignity. The children issue is another interesting part. Can a leader understand family values without one of his or her own set of kids in tow? What if you just happen to have the skills to be an excellent leader, but don’t have the expected family to prop it up? Let’s look at it another way. Could a leader with a stable marriage understand the struggles of families with only one parent? Could a leader of wealth understand the poor? Could a leader with no addictions, no layoffs, no staggering health issues truly understand those who have these issues? Whether or not Prime Minister Gillard should continue to lead Australia shouldn’t be affected by the fact she’s never changed her own child’s diaper or wears a ring. However, they might just be the factors that put her in the backbenches. Shelley Nicholl owns Mad Squid Ink, a professional writing service. madsquid@shaw.ca

course, but voters have been known to cast their ballots for less sound reasons than that. After all, Sarah Pallin got elected. The idea of a wholesome family image isn’t the forefront of the Australian election, but it is a detail that persists, not just half a world away. We seem to have an obsession with having our leaders look like they popped out of a 1950s family portrait; no hidden skeletons, 2.2 kids, a happy, doting spouse and a well-trained Labrador retriever. A man who wants to climb the political ladder would be sensible enough in college to look for a mate who would suit his purposes. She must be: Smart, but not smarter than the potential leader; attractive but definitely not sexy or more attractive than the potential leader; and take on good causes, but in a demure, secondary way. I’m not sure many political wives fit that description exactly, but it’s a general expectation the First Lady fulfill a safe, supporting role. As for First Gentlemen, that’s a little bit more tricky. We haven’t defined that one as well.

he prime minister of Australia is in a tight race for survival. After the country’s election on Saturday, Julia Gillard will either be the first elected female prime minister of Australia or the shortest-serving prime minister. The equal possibility of either option has bookies in a frenzy. Gillard became prime minister June 24 after ousting former prime minister Kevin Rudd as the Labor leader, as his popularity plummeted. She now takes her Labor Party into the polls against Conservative opposition leader Tony Abbott. The two young leaders vary in style and policy. I don’t know much about the mining tax or Australia’s environmental policy woes, but it has been interesting to note that Gillard has been critiqued for her clothing choices, which, unfortunately is tiresome, but inevitable, as well as her marital status—or lack thereof. Gillard gets a few disparaging remarks because she is living common-law (to a former hairdresser to boot) and has no children. She has been labelled

College helps ease labour shortage

A

n article appeared in the National Post not long ago warning that labour shortages loom in Canada’s clean power sector. We’ve heard the warnings of labour shortages in various sectors before —and they have generally been borne out, except where surprise worldwide financial meltdowns interfere with the carefully crafted predictions of demographers and labour economists. We all know about the coming silver tsunami. The klaxons have been sounded—coming our way is a bulge of baby boomer retirements to stress our social safety net and ask more and more of those who remain in the workforce. The clean-power sector story is a little different, though. It is not just an aging workforce that will create the shortage. Canada, as a nation— with particular emphasis in Ontario and British Columbia—is ramping up its clean energy sector. In Ontario alone, as the National Post story observed, an estimated 50,000 clean energy jobs are expected to be created in the province in the next three years. British Columbia, which had been blazing green trails in Canada with carbon taxes and other initiatives, is playing catch-up with the recent large announcements in Ontario that fuel those significant job market projections. The new jobs that are developed, along with

Allan Coyle the old jobs that will be left vacant by the retiring workers, add up to one thing: Shortage. And experts are saying it could delay or stall the country’s agenda to green our power sources. No surprise, then, that educational institutions are responding. This week, a news release was issued by four of Canada’s larger colleges—Ontario’s Durham College, Alberta’s Lethbridge College, Nova Scotia Community College and Okanagan College—announcing a green building consortium. The press release notes that the colleges will be working together to plan and co-ordinate program development, applied innovation projects and connections with industry and government agencies. Each of the colleges— Okanagan included— have groundbreaking projects underway that will help move the nation’s green energy agenda forward. They’re developing training programs, industry partnerships, and supporting entrepreneurs as

they respond to the opportunities and challenges inherent in our country’s commitment to green, clean energy and new approaches to its use. New training programs already introduced, or about to be introduced, at Okanagan College tell part of the story. The college has added a refrigeration and air conditioning mechanic program and a domestic/ residential certified geothermal technician program. These are allied with the ongoing development of the $28-million Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Technologies and Renewable Energy Conservation in Penticton, which will be finished next spring. A component of that centre is a partnership with the Okanagan Research Innovation Centre that will include a business incubator for hightech, green initiatives as part of the building. College students who are being educated to

understand and implement green technologies will be learning in an environment that is itself “deep green” and rubbing elbows with the entrepreneurs and visionaries who are extending the green horizon. The efforts of the colleges and schools of engineering at universities across the nation are a step along the way to relieving the looming labour shortage in the green energy field, but the other undertaking that must occur is to communicate the career opportunities to youth, so they can add them to the array of viable educational and career options. Let’s get busy. Allan Coyle is the director of public affairs at Okanagan College.

Wood stove change-out rebates still available Wood heating may not be at the top of your mind at this time of year, but with cooler days ahead, this is a great time to save some money. If you’re in the market to replace an old wood burning appliance with a new model, the Central Okanagan Air Quality program is still able to help you make the switch to a cleaner burning, high efficiency unit. “$250 rebates under the Wood Stove Change Out Program are still available to anyone buying a qualifying new EPA/ CSA emission-approved

wood, gas, pellet or electric appliance and recycling their old smokebelching wood stove or insert through participating Central Okanagan retailers, regional Air Quality Program coordinator Nicole Marzinzik said. And residents may also qualify for further savings through energy utilities and the provincial LiveSmart program that offer rewards for homeowners making energy efficiency upgrades, she added.

Cadillac SRX crossover makes a bold styling statement Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

Cadillac has been on a tear since introducing the CTS sports sedan back in 2002. With edgy styling and sporty driving dynamics, this new model was the beginning of an eventual rebranding that steered the marque somewhat away from the Tilley hat crowd and more toward a young, professional demographic. When the SRX bowed in the 2004 model year, it shared the sedan’s sharp angles and creases in a mid-size, luxury sport utility that fit somewhere between the CTS and the full-size Escalade SUV. It offered up to sevenpassenger seating and the choice of two engines: a 3.6-litre V6 and 4.6-litre V8. It also had a bit of an identity crisis. It was labelled an SUV, but looked more like a wagon. Or was it a crossover? In my mind, it was some of each, and the angular CTS styling just

didn’t seem to work in this tall-box design. Thankfully, an all-new SRX launched last fall, with a crisper styling, new chassis, more fuel-efficient engines and an upscale interior that puts it on par with the best in the mid-size luxury crossover segment. From the outside, the SRX is striking. It has a wide stance, short overhangs and big 18-inch or 20-inch wheels pushed to the corners. The chrome shield grille is flanked by vertical headlamps with light pipe technology and available adaptive forward lighting. A chrome front fender vent continues into a bold accent line that follows the side profile, tapering to the rear. Here you’ll find an integrated roof spoiler, tall vertical taillamps and large bore dual exhausts, set in the rear fascia. In keeping with this more athletic look, the SRX has shed some girth, giving up 116 mm in length, 150 mm in wheelbase and 52 mm in height, See Cadillac B3

High tech & style Cadillac from B1 but is 66 mm wider. Curb weight is marginally lighter. On the inside, there’s a pleasing blend of oldworld craftsmanship and high tech. The hand-cutand-sewn coverings on the dash, optional wood inserts and elegant chromeringed analogue clock provides a nice contrast with the modern, sophisticated instruments, softtouch controls and metallic accents. Panel gaps are extremely tight with no rattles or squeaks, and the vehicle’s triple door seals, five-layer acoustic headliner and acoustically laminated windshield and side windows all contribute to a hushed cabin, even in the midst of summer construction and rush hour traffic. Standard leather seating (heated in front with six- and eight-way power adjust for the front passenger and driver) is comfortable on long trips. Having dropped the third row, the SRX no longer has room for seven passengers, but those in the second row

Cargo volume has dropped slightly for 2010, with 839 litres behind the second-row and 1,733 litres with the 60/40 seatbacks folded flat. This compares with 918 litres and 1968 litres, respectively, in the previous model. Still, you get a passthrough behind the armrest, allowing you to carry skis or a few sticks of lumber, without inconveniencing rear passengers. One of the neat features in the cargo area is the optional U-Rail track system. This provides four sliding cleats on a U-shaped track, allowing you to separate and secure

your items. And if you need even more space, the standard roof rails allow you to attach an appropriate rack or roof carrier. The SRX can be had in three front-drive and six AWD versions, with numerous standalone options, giving you a pile of ways to configure the vehicle. The base 3.0-litre front-driver starts at $41,575 and gets you such features as dual-zone automatic climate control with air filtration; leatherwrapped, manual tilt-andtelescopic steering wheel with audio, cruise and climate controls; two memory settings for the driver’s seat; AM/FM/XM/ CD/MP3 audio system with Bose 8-speaker sur-

round sound; Bluetooth; OnStar with one year of turn-by-turn navigation; and more. The SRX also gets a full suite of standard safety features that include four-wheel vented disc brakes with ABS, Panic Brake Assist, Dynamic Rear Brake Proportioning and hill hold assist; stability control with trailer sway control; traction control; high-strength steel safety cage and six airbags.

At $63,865 (including A/C excise tax and destination charge) my vehicle had no shortage of amenities, and included all the standard stuff mentioned above plus such items as Ultraview sunroof with power sunshade (I kept this drawn to avoid cooking the family); power liftgate (with programmable height settings); power adjustable pedals; Sapele wood trim on doors, centre console, steering wheel and shift knob; rain-sensing wipers; adaptive headlights (swivels with steering); front and rear park-

It delivers a smooth ride over rough roads—as we found during our week of camping—but really firms things up in the corners, reducing body roll. The $5,285 entertainment/navigation system seems a bit pricey, but you get a lot for the dough. This includes an eightinch popup touch screen for your navigation system, back-up camera and other functions. Also part of the package is a Bose 10-speaker 5.1 surround sound system with 40

With the hard drive, you can record up to an hour of programming— which is great if you are enjoying a particular radio program and have to leave the vehicle. You can also transfer your favourite MP3 files or simply play music directly from your iPod or a much cheaper memory stick.

Audi A4 Avant shows station wagons have come a long way Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

There aren’t too many traditional station wagons on the road these days but one that stands out is Audi’s stylish A4 Avant. Wagons enjoy much more popularity in Europe than in North America and for the life of me I can’t understand why they have fallen so much out of favour here. Of course, Cadillac now offers the upscale CTS Sport Wagon, but other than the Volkswagen Jetta wagon and a couple from Subaru, most are upscale European offerings. I love station wagons and perhaps its because I grew up with them. Our family always had a station wagon and every summer we headed out on a camping adventure to the Canadian east coast, New England or somewhere in Ontario. Those were great times and perhaps that’s why I have a soft spot for the venerable old station wagon. They offer so much versatility that it’s hard to figure out why they haven’t made more of a comeback. When the minivan arrived, station wagon sales started to tank. Then came SUVs and now cross-

overs. These body styles became the vehicles of choice for families when in fact the traditional station wagon would fit the bill for them just as well. So for those who don’t mind going against the grain a bit, the Audi A4 Avant is a great choice; stylish, easy to drive and versatile. But it does come at a premium price. My 2010 A4 Avant Premium tester priced out at $59,456 plus $800 freight and PDI to take it over the $60k mark. That’s a pretty hefty amount, but as with any Audi you’re getting a lot of car for the money. The base price was $47,100, but $11,950 in options soon took the total near the $60k mark. Included was the $2,500 Audi Drive Select package that includes a dynamic steering system, adaptive suspension damping system, three drive control settings (auto, comfort, dynamic), variable throttle response (normal or sport) and variable gear shifting (normal or sport). Other options included the $3,500 Navigation Package, S Line Sport Package ($3,000), Technology Package ($2,200) and the new for 2010 Garnet Red Pearl Effect paint ($750).

CONTRIBUTED

THE AUDI A4 AVANT is as stylish as they come when you’re talking about station wagons. Powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, this luxury five-door offers lots of versatility along with car-like handling. The trendy S line option features 19-inch alloy wheels, S line steering wheel with paddle shifters, Alcantara/leather sport seats, brushed aluminum trim, sport suspension and S line trim. Meanwhile, included in the Technology Package is Audi Side Assist, advance key with start button, adaptive headlights

and Homelink. Power for the Avant comes from a turbocharged 2.0-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder engine making 211 hp and 258 lb/ft of torque. Of course, it also gets Audi’s trademark quattro allwheel drive, a great plus in Canada where you never know when bad weather will hit.

The A4 Avant got a full-fledged facelift in 2009; so few changes have been made for 2010. But the Avant is already ahead of the curve from a design standpointã very stylish and curvaceous, yet lean and aerodynamic looking. It’s far removed from the boxy wagons of the past that I remember so

fondly and that’s one of the reasons I find them so appealing these days. You get all the trappings of a luxury sedan in a more versatile package. The turbo four-banger, the only engine available, gives the A4 Avant adequate power, but it’s no high-performance sports sedan either. Audi lists a 0-100 km/h time of 7.1

seconds, quick enough for most drivers and most driving situations. At a relatively light 1,739 kg (3,840 lb), the five-passenger, five-door Avant is an easy to manoeuvre, nimble vehicle that is a delight to drive, even on winding back roads. It soaks up bumps See Audi B7

Sharing the Road with Large Trucks and Buses KATE WELLS We touched on sharing the road with large trucks, covering their large blind spots, passing, giving them room to stop and more. There are also other large vehicles on the road that we drive with every day. These include transit buses, school buses, fire trucks, ambulances and more. I get a lot of emails regarding transit buses and driver frustration with a transit bus operator just “pulling into traffic” without warning. Did you know, it’s actually the law to yield to a transit bus that is displaying a “yield-to-bus” sign? If you are driving 60 km/h or lower,

DRIVEWISE HAS MANY CONDENSED CLASSES TO HELP YOU GET YOUR LICENCE SOONER! Classroom sessions completed in 3 days!

you must stop and allow the bus to move out from the curb lane or bus stop. This sign looks like this: To be prepared, any transit bus that you see pulled over to the side of the road should be recognized. Stopped buses can block your vision as a driver as well as hide pedestrians that may want to cross the road. If there is space, change lanes to allow the bus to pull safely into traffic. Bus drivers really appreciate calm and patient drivers! School buses are about to become more visible as we get into “back to school” for September. Here are the rules for school buses:

KELOWNA Full Driving Course: August 31 – 3 days Sept 11 – 3 Saturdays Free Learners Preparation Monday, Sept. 13th, 6:30 pm - 8:30pm

• If you see a school bus with alternating flashing lights at the top, you MUST stop. Buses may or may not have a sign that will swing out as well. Traffic coming from behind the bus and in front of the bus must stop. • You may cautiously drive past the bus once the bus starts moving OR the driver signals that it is safe for you to drive by. This is only once the lights have stopped flashing and the sign is pulled in. • Remember to always watch for children when you see a school bus. School is back in session on September 7th, 2010 for most schools.

Cadillac SRX is one of the most distinctive crossovers Cadillac from B3 these tiny displays that some manufacturers are integrating into the rearview mirror. The dual screen rear entertainment system was a lifesaver during our fourhour journey to Grand Bend, Ont ario. Wireless headphones kept our kids focused on the movie— and not on each other, allowing us to enjoy my wife’s favourite “all ’80s all the time” satellite radio station undisturbed. Also on my tester

were 20-inch chrome clad aluminum wheels, replacing the standard 18inch painted aluminum rims. Standard engine on the SRX is a 3.0-litre direct injection V6 that delivers 265 hp and 223 lb/ ft of torque. It’s a smaller displacement version of the previous 3.6-litre V6 and delivers 10 more horses, but 31 fewer lb/ft of torque. Still, it gets substantially better fuel economy, with the front-driver rated at 11.5/8.0/9.9L/100 km (city/hwy/comb) com-

pared with the 3.6-litre engine’s ratings of 14.1/8.8/11.7L/100 km. This engine is paired with a six-speed automatic with manual shift control. Optional on the AWD is a turbocharged 2.8-litre V6 that measures up surprisingly well against last generation’s top-tier engine. Delivering 300 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque, it’s marginally less robust than the big 4.6-litre Northstar V8, but delivers substantially better fuel economy at 13.6/9.1/11.6L/100 km

(city/hwy/comb), compared with 16.0/10.0 13.3L/100 km. The turbo V6 gets an Aisin six-speed auto, with a selectable “eco mode” that alters shift points and throttle response for better fuel economy. It does make a significant impact on performance, with more leisurely acceleration off the line and slower downshifts. If you’re doing a lot of passing, “sport” mode is your better choice. The SRX has plenty of competition in this seg-

ment. The Lexus RX, Audi Q5, Lincoln MKX, BMW X3 and even the Mercedes-Benz GLK are among the offerings in this crowded market segment. All are good vehicles, but the SRX is among the most distinctive of this group. And it competes well in the areas of price, performance and technology, making it worth a look for anybody considering a luxury crossover.

will share the stories of the people and places they encounter along the way. Road trip planning tips, car maintenance and driving advice will be included. The team will also report on the comfort, performance and fuel efficiency of the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox. The drive will also emphasize the attributes of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasolines, which help act as a barrier to shield and protect critical engine parts against car-

bon deposits also known as “gunk.” The Equinox will be completely detailed with GM, Shell and Carguide branding to attract attention to the tour and participants. Readers and the public will also have the chance to enter contests and win prizes. As well as Carguide magazine and website coverage, the tour will be featured in Metroland’s media partner outlets and local media across the country.

Toyota cleared of sudden acceleration claims Driver error cited for unintentional acceleration accidents Audi unintentional acceleration, take two? If you’ve been on the earth long enough to remember the sudden acceleration fiasco that plagued Audi, a premium automaker on the rise in the early to mid 1980s and brought to its knees by media hype about drivers who, it was later conclud-

ed, misplaced their feet and pressed the go pedal instead of the brake, you might experience a little déjà vu as you read on. Toyota, as you likely know, has been under fire recently for similar claims. The Japanese automaker has received more than 3,000 reports of sudden acceleration in the US, and now, after more media hype than Audi experienced (thanks to the immediate viral spread of news via the Internet, al-

beit without a TV news show that fabricated a reenactment) the U.S. Department of Transportation has concluded that the real culprit is driver error. Investigators analyzed data recorders from numerous Toyota vehicles, says the Wall Street Journal, and each car’s throttle was fully depressed while the brakes were not actuated at all. To make matters clearer, of the 75 fatal accidents blamed on uninten-

tional or sudden acceleration, only one shows the vehicle as being the cause of the incident. In this incident, where a Lexus ES 350 killed a California Highway officer and three passengers in August of last year, a sticking floor mat was blamed. Toyota quickly recalled all floor mats that could potentially cause a similar problem, and no similar issues have been reported. Incidentally, Toyota Canada uses different floor mats and had no similar problems. Additionally, the U.S. Transportation Department officials went on record to say that they haven’t found any electronic problems with Toyota vehicles that could have led to an

unintended/sudden acceleration accident. Only the floor mat issue and a problem with sticky accelerator pedals, which were slow to return, have been noted as potential problems, and these have been dealt with via recalls. The aftermath of the sudden acceleration debacle has yet to be determined, but Toyota has certainly suffered from a problem it appears it had little to nothing to do with. Rebuilding an image that has gone through more than eight million U.S. recalls will be difficult, and likely Toyota will do its best to tell its side of the story in expensive ad campaigns.

Ford F-150 powertrain lineup delivers bestin-class fuel economy, power, capability For the 2011 model year, the Ford F-150 is getting the most extensive powertrain overhaul in the truck’s history. The 2011 F-150 has four new truck engines, all coupled to a revised six-speed automatic transmission. Each engine delivers improved fuel economy, outstanding performance and class-leading capability. This versatile new powertrain lineup enables F-150 customers to choose the engine that best suits their needs. Available at launch are a 3.7-litre V6 and a 5.0-litre V8, each with fuel-saving and performance-enhancing twin in-

j

dependent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) technology, and a version of the 6.2-litre V8 that is the base engine in the 2011 Ford F-Series Super Duty. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, specially tuned and calibrated for the F-150, will be available in early 2011. Each of the engines offers an unequaled combination of attributes that matter most to F-150 customers: torque, horsepower, fuel economy, performance, durability, reliability and capability.

Lots of luggage space in Avant Audi from B4 and pot holes with ease but at the same time still has a sporty feel. Although it features all-wheel drive, it’s not an off-roader, but neither are any of the crossover vehicles so popular these days. The low ride height makes it easier to load and unload cargo than in a sport utility or crossover vehicle and cargo capacity is much greater than in most luxury sedans, like

its A4 2.0T Sedan sibling. With the 60/40 split rear seats down, the Avant has 1,430 litres (50.5 cu ft) of luggage space compared with 962 for the sedan. With the seats up, the Avant has 490 litres (17.3 cu ft), only 10 more than in the sedan. The luxury interior complements the excellent driving dynamics and sleek exterior styling. With my tester optioned to the hilt, it had all the bells and whistles a technology

guru would desire in their luxury vehicle. The two-tone grey interior was a touch drab, but the brushed aluminum accents help give it a more upscale look. I found the seats very comfortable and supportive. All in all, this is a car I could live with day in and day out. Fun to drive, versatile and great styling; everything I would ask for in a daily driver.

AUDI A4 AVANT 2010

Body Style: five-door luxury station wagon. Drive Method: front engine, Quattro all-wheeldrive. Engine: turbocharged 2.0-litre, four-cylinder (211 hp, 258 lb/ft of torque). Fuel Economy: 10.lL/100 km (28 mpg) city, 7.3L/100 km (39 mpg) highway. Price: $47,100, as tested $59,456 plus $800 freight and PDI. Web: www.audi.ca

Ford from B6 up will deliver best-inclass fuel economy. When the 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine joins the lineup, the 2011 F-150 will have up to 20 per cent better fuel economy compared with the outgoing 2010 F-150. To ensure the highest quality, most reliable engines, Ford engineers studied the warranty history of the outgoing engines and developed testing procedures based on the real-world driving experiences from current F-150 drivers. Prototype engines funderwent a wide range of tests to ensure complete compatibility with truck application and truck durability, with all components and systems passing testing to the equivalent of 150,000 miles. Components such as the exhaust manifolds and the crankshaft (forged steel) were upgraded, piston-cooling jets and oil coolers were added, and engines were specifically calibrated for improved heavy-duty operation and durability in F-150.

All Suzuki vehicles come with a 5-year, 100,000 kilometre powertrain limited warranty and 3-year unlimited kilometre roadside assistance.

Having monster engines with 400 and 500 hp is all well and good, but when it takes the high side of $100 to fill the tank, well, there has to be an alternative. Honda believes it has an answer to providing performance while staving off gas pump shock with the 2010 Civic Coupe Si. The Coupe Si shares the same â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one-motionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; profile concept of the current Civic line with a steep windshield rake, negligible front and rear overhangs, and a reduced gap between the wheel wells and the tires for a sweeping, cohesive appearance. And speaking about profiles, how about the two-tier instrument panel? A digital speedometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge are housed in the upper level to be more in-line with the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line-of-sight. The lower level of the instrument panel houses a big tachometer, multi-information digital display, odometer with trip meter and a variety of warning indicators. The idea is to let the driver see what needs be seen with minimal attention taken away from the road ahead. While the standard Civic Sedan/Coupe has a

1.8-litre engine with 140 hp and 128 lb/ft of torque, the Coupe Si has a modelspecific 2.0-litre, DOHC four-cylinder with 197 hp and 139 lb/ft of torque. Honda uses variable valve timing along with all the knowledge gained through motorcycle and Formula One racing to extract the kind of high-revving power that just sings out. The air intake and the exhaust systems were tuned to provide a deep sound and resonance for the kind of feedback found on competition cars. Another thing learned from racing is the use of drive-by-wire throttle body technology that gives smooth acceleration response along with a chain driven balancer unit in the oil pan that minimizes engine vibration. In fact, this car can hit the 7,800 rpm redline so fast, there is a red warning light set high on the dash that starts flashing at 7,400 rpm as you approach top end. A six-speed manual (no automatic available) ensures that the engine is pulling at maximum through the gears and there is a helical-type limited slip differential to route that torque evenly to the front wheels. Even so, you can still get the tires squealing in first, second with even a chirp in third. The interior treatment is unique to the Coupe Si with red stitching on the seats and front seat bolsters so big; you almost have to climb in over them. On the outside, the 17-inch alloy wheels on 215/45-series tires give away the fact this not a plebian Civic. To compound the more sinister look, it has Si badging, aero cladding, and a big rear wing that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told is functional. Like its Civic siblings, the Coupe Si has standard front, side seat and side curtain airbags along with standard four-channel ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and an advanced body structure that absorbs and dissipates energy in a collision. Also standard are active front headrests and electronic stability control (that Honda calls Vehicle Stability Assist) with inteSee Honda B10

grated traction control. Honda has always poured a lot of time and effort into its suspensions. The Coupe Si takes the standard MacStruts front and multi-link double wishbone rear and enhances it to match the greater power and limited slip diff grip of the Si. The roofline, because of the swept back windshield and the high bolstered seats, is not conducive to graceful entrances, but once seated, it’s pretty roomy in there. At first, the two-tier instrument panel seems awkward, but once

underway, the logic of it is clear. All you really need, after all, is the speedo to keep you out of mischief, which is hard to do in a car like the Si. The Si shifter was specially designed for short, fast, positive gear changes. Couple that to a very, and I mean very light clutch and you have the recipe for spirited motoring. But the main dish on this menu is the Si engine. It revs with the slightest nudge of the fly-by-wire throttle. Tromp it and the Si shoots forward with a slight dose of torque steer that is manageable as long as you know it is coming.

Being a front-driver, the Civic Si oversteers, meaning it likes to go straight when you want to turn. Luckily, the steering weight is also light, but not soft to the hands so you get descent road “feel.” Because the body is so rigid, you do feel the big bumps and potholes but it’s firm, not jarring. The best part is listening to the harmonic tune of the intake and exhaust systems, but watch for the red warning light because when the rev limiter cuts in, it makes a heck of a noise as the juice is cut to cylinders that are left begging for more. When I tested the Civic Si back in 2006, it had a sticker price of $25,800. Today, that same car as tested here was priced to start at $25,880.

The Si shows that motoring in a quick and tidy manner does not have to cost the better part of fifty grand. What the Civic Si does is prove that you can have fun and be practical at the same time, which when you think about it, is what Civics have been all about since 1973.

JULIUS STEIGER

1920 – 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Julius Peter Steiger on Saturday, August 14, 2010, at the age of 90 years. He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Karoline, his children Erika (Egon) Stotz, Julius (Donna) Steiger, Christine (Wayne) Beerling, Horst (Sherry) Steiger, and Dennis (Lynda) Steiger as well as by his grandchildren Rolfe, Gloria, Rob, Don, Elizabeth, Peter, Deborah, Kathy, Mike, Rick, and Christine, their spouses and numerous great and great-great grandchildren. Julius was born in Odenburg, Austria on May 6, 1920. He met and fell in love with Karoline who was to become his lifelong partner. They raised 4 children in Germany before emigrating to Canada in 1957. Life was not always easy for Julius and his family in post-war Germany, or as new immigrants to Canada, but he worked hard to build a new life for them all, including their youngest son Dennis who was born in Canada. The family settled in Kelowna, but, later moved to Whitehorse and other communities for a time before finally making Kelowna their home again. Julius pursued several careers which include being a master baker, construction foreman, and electrician. At the time of his retirement he was the electrical supervisor for the Northern Canada Power Commission and was responsible for the electrical operation of numerous power generation stations throughout the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Julius had a love of adventure that he shared with his children. There were countless trips to local creeks and rivers to go fishing, camping and goldpanning. In later years, he spent many hours metal detecting and woodworking. Things changed greatly during his time but Julius never lost his boyhood wonder of all the possibilities that the world could bring. Most of all, Julius loved to tell stories. Everyone was fascinated by his tales of life as a boy growing up in Europe, as well as the more harrowing tales of the war and survival afterwards. Julius will be greatly missed by his family. A memorial service with be held for Julius at 11 AM at The Village at Mill Creek on Saturday August 28th. In lieu of flowers, we suggest a donation to a favorite charity in Julius’ memory. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.everdenrust.com. MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR LILY WATTS who passed away Nov 26, 2009 at Swan River, Man, at the age 100 years. Service to be held at the Kelowna Bible Chapel. Tues, Aug 24 at 2pm.
