IT’S BEEN a hot start for the Kelly Scott rink of Kelowna at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts, a title that Scott won in both 2006 and 2007.

DEEP INTO WINTER as we now are in the Okanagan, there is nothing like comfort foods that mom or grandma used to make to bring on a little warmth.

ALISTAIR WATERS says any criticism of local Internet media outlet owner’s role in civic election remains muted.

W CAPOZZI TRIAL

Bus riders still not happy

Murder trial cut short with guilty plea to manslaughter

PEROGY EATING CHAMP…Morgan Harrison chomps down on another perogy, one of

35-1/2 that he wolfed down to win a perogy eating contest staged Saturday by Barb’s Delights as a fundraiser for the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. See story A4.

The Kelowna man accused of killing his mother in 2009 pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday morning, cutting short a trial that was expected to last several weeks. “I firmly believe it’s the right thing to do,” Cameron Capozzi, 52, said as he was led from the courtroom, after entering a guilty plea to manslaughter—a lesser charge than second degree murder for which he was being tried. Crown Counsel Martin Nadon said the deciCameron Capozzi sion to cut the jury trial short was reached over the weekend, when he and Capozzi’s defence lawyer met. “The state of the case is such that it’s appropriate to take a plea,” Nadon said. He noted he hadn’t gone that route earlier, despite the fact it had initially been proposed by Capozzi’s legal representation, as the evidence didn’t lead to that conclusion until the trial got underway. While the details of Capozzi’s criminal record are now squared away, Nadon still has to work out a sentencing recommendation. A factor bound to be worked in is Capozzi’s sobriety both the day his mother died and in the weeks leading up to her death, as it was a key issue during the first two days of the trial. Conflicting reports from witnesses arose, however most testified that Capozzi— an alcoholic on a bender— showed signs of severe intoxication the day

Kelowna city council’s compromise on the future of the No. 9 shopper’s shuttle bus route has hit a road block in the form of opposition from the riders who lobbied to save it. Kelowna city council voted to reinstate a modified version of the route, reducing the number of runs to four from seven each day, with runs going between 11:40 a.m. and 2:40 p.m. The route, which goes from downtown to Orchard Park via Parkinson Recreation Centre, will no longer continue on past Walmart on Banks Road. As part of its approval of the reinstated route, council asked staff to discuss with B.C. Transit planners moving the fourhour block to start earlier in the day and end earlier. Part of the decision to reinstate a modified version of the route was to run it outside of peak transit hours—the morning and afternoon rush hours. But the new route does not sit well with many of the seniors who use it. According to many

W COURT

Evidence leads Crown to accept plea Capozzi from A1 his mother Josephine ‘Babs’ Capozzi, 79, was found dead in their shared home. Defence lawyer Peter Wilson indicated his client drank himself to the “point of psychosis,” which was evident in audio recordings of calls he made to a local newspaper and church. Capozzi’s blood alcohol level following his arrest was also an indicator. It came in at four times the legal driving limit or .320. “For a social drinker, that’s potentially fatal,” Wilson said.

“I can tell you categorically, in 20 years of practice, I’ve never dealt with these levels of intoxication.” Josephine apparently died from a ruptured aorta. She was found Aug. 18, 2009, lying in the hallway near her front door, clutching a knife. “She was frail,” Wilson pointed out, adding she could have died as a result of an earlier fall, or when she was carried into the house after that tumble. No other information on what happened in the hours leading to her death was offered, although

the manslaughter plea indicates Capozzi was involved, whether or not he had intended to hurt his mother. “He’s always accepted his responsibility,” said Wilson. “There’s no doubt about that.” Capozzi was arrested at the scene, and has remained in prison since that time, never applying for bail. It means he’ll get double credit for time served against any sentence decided on at an April 2 hearing. Regardless of the result, it’s a tragic twist for the Capozzi

family, which had a great number of successes in Kelowna, and B.C. in general. Josephine’s ex-husband was Tom Capozzi, whose family cofounded Calona Vineyards and had a stake in the Capri Hotel. Tom’s brother was Herb Capozzi, the recently deceased B.C. Lions football club general manager and co-founder of The Keg restaurant chain, just two of his many exploits in the business and sports communities during his life. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

riders, some of whom protested outside Kelowna City Hall before council’s regular weekly meeting Monday, the new route is not good enough. “We are very angry and frustrated,” said senior Muriel Temple, who described herself as partially blind and as a result would have difficulty getting a different bus elsewhere. She said the new route not only makes it difficult to go to doctor’s appointments, but also means changing buses at Orchard Park to get to Walmart. City regional programs manager Jerry Dombrowsky said the reinstated route is the best the city can do without adding to the transit budget. As he gave his presentation, some of the seniors in the audience grew increasingly agitated, disagreeing with what was being said. They were not allowed to speak directly to council during the meeting. Last month, council approved a provisional budget that kept the aver-

age tax increase to onetenth of one per cent, and Mayor Walter Gray said the city had to keep to that with any changes being made now. The riders also reject use of the No. 10 bus, which the city says stops close to many of the No. 9 route stops, because not only is it difficult for some to get to those stops because of a hill on part of the route, No. 10 buses are often crowded and there are times when there is no room for seniors’ walkers. The No. 10 route is one of the busiest in the city. In addition to reinstating part of the No. 9 shoppers shuttle, the city is also reinstating the Saturday service of the No. 12 McCulloch route. In the provisional budget, the city saved itself $250,000 on transit costs and added service in the Quail Ridge area, late night service for UBCO and service to the H2O Aquatic centre in the Mission. The change in the No. 9 route is slated to start March 25.

W CRIME

Arrest made for pawnshop heist Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna man police arrested last week for his talleged involvement in a pawnshop robbery, will remain behind bars until a court date scheduled for later this month. In a dramatic show, police arrested Zachary William Worrall, 23, on Thursday for his alleged involvement in the Feb. 8 robbery of Savemore Pawnbrokers on Asher Road. The person behind that crime, got away with a tsignificant amount of jewelry, after catching pawnshop owner Jan Verhagen by surprise and repeatedly striking him in the back of the head and arm. f With nearly two weeks of healing from a broken arm and various other injuries behind him, Verhagen, 54, said he’s pleased to hear there’s been an arrest, and that the violent episode has refreshed an old lesson. “I turned my back on someone, which I shouldn’t have done…I won’t do that again,” he said, remarking that his size usually acts as a deterrent to people who go by his shop with criminal-intent. “It could have been a lot worse. I’ve had friends of mine in this business, who weren’t so lucky.” Verhagen has also learned a bit about the brighter side of humanity this last couple of weeks. “The people here in Rutland have been good to me,” he said. “They’ve dropped me off baking stuff, someone shovelled my driveway on Saturday and I’ve had so tmany cards, and calls and stuff like that. It’s been nice.” Worrall is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 27.

W THEATRE t

Tickets still available for Chekhov’s Shorts stage production Internationally toured peek at playwright Anton Chekhov’s short fiction plays for the first time in five years. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It’s been to the Chekhov International Theatre Festival and all the way to China, yet if there’s one thing that shocks actor and director Dean Gilmour about Chekhov’s Shorts, it’s the timelessness of the stories. Gilmour and his partner, Michele Smith, have adapted five of Anton Chekhov’s short stories to form a play from the playwright’s fiction. “It’s interesting be-

cause Chekhov died in 1904 and the stories are so contemporary that sometimes we wonder how he did that; how he wrote something so profound and so simple that it really speaks to people of all ages and around the world is impressive,” said Gilmour. “We’ve taken it to China. We’ve taken it to Moscow and across Canada, and the stories really resonate.” Chekhov is considered one of the greatest playwrights in history.

Though a physician by day, he spent his entire life writing, initially as a means to earn money, then moving slowly into an appreciation of the art form that rendered him a major influence on modern theatre and acting. Of all of his stories and writing, four plays became synonymous with his name: The Cherry Orchard, The Seagull, Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters. The plays established a theatre of mood tradition and pushed the bar for the playwright beyond storytelling to new methods of literary expression; and yet, it was one of these plays that brought Gilmour and Smith back to his short fiction.

CONTRIBUTED

CHEKHOV’S SHORTS comes to the Rotary Centre for the Arts for a three-performance run Feb. 23 to 25. “We did a production of The Cherry Orchard because we love Chekhov and we really wanted to explore his world,” Gilmore said. “We were very

dissatisfied with it though. We didn’t feel like we had found something really unique; something that was really ours.” The pair started dig-

ging into his work and found a short story that led to the Cherry Orchard— which led to a search into his short stories. “It wasn’t a play. It was fiction and having that source that was not a play inspired us. There was a kind of freedom from preconceived notions and that’s how theatre should really be,” Gilmour explained. The pair chose five short stories loosely base around a freedom theme and started creating their own play. From On the Train to Belikov, Sleepyhead, Kashtanka and Rothschild’s Fiddle, they built a storyline all their own, if really entirely borrowed.

The production ran from the end of 1999 through 2007 and won three Dora Mavor Moore Awards (presented by the Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts) for Outstanding Actor, Outstanding Director and Outstanding Production. This will be the first time it’s shown in five years. Chekhov’s Shorts runs this Thursday through Saturday (Feb. 23 to 25) at 7:30 p.m. in the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students, available through www.selectyourtickets. com or by calling the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 250-717-5304. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

The new museum is now housed in the old Westbank RCMP detachment building that had been earmarked for demolition. The volunteers worked tirelessly, cataloguing items, moving artifacts, and constructing displays. The museum is operated by volunteers and is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

injuries at Kelowna General Hospital. Const. Kris Clark said the woman was standing at the intersection of Highway 33 and Loseth Road around 2:30 p.m. Friday, when she was fatally struck by a vehicle that had just crashed into another. “One vehicle was making at a left-hand turn at Highway 33 and Loseth Road,” said Const. Kris Clark. “That vehicle struck an oncoming vehicle, which then spun uncontrollably into a pedestrian.” The woman was in the city visiting family, as was the man who made the fatal left-hand turn. Const. Clark said that he was a 43-year-old Australian who had been visiting Kelowna and intending to return home Saturday. He was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention.

SAANICH CRASH

A 44-year-old Kelowna man was slapped with two costly tickets after driving away from a hitand-run that sent three people to hospital. On Thursday, Feb. 16, around 9:30 p.m., a black Ford F150 travelling southbound on West Saanich Road crossed the centre line near Interurban Road, sideswiping a northbound Mazda sedan. A mother and her two teenage daughters in the Mazda were taken to hospital with whiplash injuries. The Ford F150 left the scene, and Saanich police put out an advisory asking for the public’s help in locating the vehicle. Saanich police found the heavily damaged truck abandoned on Linnet Lane around 7 a.m. Friday. Investigators contacted the truck’s owner, a

44-year-old Sidney man, who said he had allowed a friend to borrow his vehicle the night before. Police spoke with the driver’s friend, a 44-yearold Kelowna man, later in the day, and he admitted to being the driver. He was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act with failing to remain at the scene of an accident, and driving without due care and attention. Each ticket comes with a $368 fine.

WARRANT IN QUESNEL

Aaron Sutherland was arrested without incident in Quesnel on Friday after failing to report to his halfway house in Kelowna last month. Sutherland was wanted for being unlawfully at large and a Canada-wide warrant had been issued on Jan. 19. Police said a tip from the public led to Sutherland’s arrest.

W GRANFONDO KELOWNA

Cycling event generated $3.5m in economic activity The inaugural RBC GranFondo Kelowna took place on July 16 last year, attracting cyclists and tourism dollars into the region. Some 1,200 registered participants from six countries descended on Kelowna with their families for the epic 115 km ride through the Central Okanagan. Starting and finishing in Kelowna, cyclists of varying abilities experienced challenging hill climbs and great vistas as they made their way through Lake Country and Vernon with local spectators cheering them on along the route. Significant economic impacts were made as a result of the event. Spending made by organizers, participants and their families generated $3.5 million in economic activity for the province.

Total industry output representing direct and indirect expenditures generated by the event: • $3.5 million to the province • $1.7 million to the City of Kelowna. Spending associated with the event supported $1.2 million in wages and salaries in the province through the support of 30 jobs, of which 17 jobs were supported in Kelowna. Considerable tax revenues were supported by the event totalling $765,000: • $353,000 for the federal government • $278,000 for the provincial government • $89,000 for the City of Kelowna. “We are very proud of the economic impact that our event has made to the province and the region,” said Kevin Thomson, president and co-founder of GranFondo Canada.

Last Monday was a very special day for Christopher Wallace. His Grade 7 classmates at Heritage Christian School presented him with an iPad, complete with software that will enable him to communicate better with his teachers, peers and family members. Diagnosed with autism at age three, Christopher is mostly non-verbal and prior to this year, spent his days in a special needs program. However, to the surprise of everyone, Christopher has been spending 90 per cent of his school day this year in the regular classroom. “It wouldn’t have worked without the understanding and cooperation of the classroom teacher and the students themselves,” stated certified educational assistant Dan Mandryk. “Christopher has already surpassed every goal I had for him in regards to integrating him into the classroom. “The iPad and the communication program, “Proloquo2go” will raise the bar in getting him to communi-

cate with his peers. ” The idea to raise money for this project came from his classmates after Christopher started to engage in the class’s sports activities such as soccer, hockey and basketball. Students organized a bake sale as their main fundraiser, but many students donated money right out of their own pockets to help Christopher. One student even bought Christopher an iPad cover as a Christmas gift. As word spread about the unselfish act of these students, others desired to donate to the cause. All the money was raised within four weeks. “Christopher loves playing sports with us,” remarked his classmate Josiah Gerk. “After he has tried a new sport, he will come back to the class and make a gold medal for himself out of paper.” Now that Christopher has the iPad with the communication program, everyone in his Grade 7 class as well as his family members are excited to see if the barriers of autism will continue to be broken down.

STAFF REPORTER

The Surrey man who shot at police and car jacked a young man in the wake of a robbery gone awry, surrendered this week. “(Devan Markcus Wong ) came to the detachment with his legal counsel and turned himself in,” said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. It was a peaceful resolution to one of the more violent episodes local police have dealt with in recent history. Wong came into conflict with local Mounties Dec. 6, 2011, after a call

to 911 alerted them to a robbery in progress at Premier Jewelry and Loan. As he exited the building, laden with stolen jewelry, officers were waiting. Wong dropped the stolen goods, took off running and shot several bullets at the RCMP dog and its handler who were first on scene. A lengthy search ensued, but police later learned he had carjacked a young man who had been driving through the neighbourhood. He was forced to transport Wong to a West Kelowna trailer park. Information on what happened next has yet to be

released. In the months that followed, Premier Jewelry and Loan employees, and shop owner Martin Strasser, have worked on coming to grips with the violent episode, and news of Wong’s surrender will help them to continue healing. “Obviously we’re very excited by this. He put a lot of people at risk. To have him off the street is the best option we could have had,” Strasser told the Capital News last Friday. “Until you’ve been the victim of a violent crime, you can’t realize how it haunts you. That doesn’t

go away with his arrest, but it makes it a bit easier.” Strasser also had high praise for Mounties who he said doggedly worked to identify Wong from a low quality image from his security system. “From our perspective it shows people that shops like ours aren’t a target and you won’t get away with it,” he said. He’s also taking a lesson out of the experience. “We now have new security protocols in place, better video surveillance and a door buzzer,” he said. “This has been a big eye-opener.” kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

B.C. resources finding new markets outside the U.S. Alistair Waters ASSISTANT REPORTER

B.C. Jobs Minister Pat Bell says the Okanagan’s future lies to the east—the Far East. Emerging markets, such as those in China and India, offer this region and the rest of B.C. immense opportunities to generate what Bell calls important “first dollars,” a euphemism for new money generated for the economy. And, as part of the B.C. Jobs Plan, introduced last September by the provincial government, the province plans to take advantage in eight strategic areas—forestry, mining, natural gas, agriculture, transportation, international education, technology and tourism. Bell, who spoke to the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce on Friday, said for the first time the dollar value of the processed lumber B.C. exports to China rose above $1 bil-

B.C. JOBS MINISTER Pat Bell was the keynote speaker for the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce luncheon last Friday. lion, an amount strengthened by an increased focus on that country. In the last seven years, that amount has jumped nearly 1,500 per cent. “A company that has its head office in Vernon—Tolko Industries— is part of that,” Bell told

about 100 people at the Delta Grand Hotel’s conference centre. “Tolko has made huge strides in selling forest products in China.” He called Tolko the sixth biggest producer of lumber in the world. And he said wood ex-

ports to China are mainly processed lumber, not raw logs. B.C. has been criticized in the past for too much raw log export and not benefiting from the added value processing the wood brings. Bell, who used to be forests minister, said while

W BLACK MOUNTAIN

B.C. is not turning its back on the United States—for years its biggest customer and the focus of most export initiatives—it’s time to spread the B.C. business net wider. And that is being spurred on by growth in China and India, particulary with China building huge cities faster than any country in the world. Recently, one city, Chonqing, with a population Bell said of 33 million, announced it planned to build 500,000 units of rental housing over the next six months “The United States doesn’t build that much in a year,” said Bell. While natural resources—something B.C. has been known for for many years—remains an important component of the province’s plans to stimulate its economy in the future, there are several other areas where Bell said the province can, and does, excel. Locally, technology, international education, agriculture and especial-

ly tourism all will provide opportunities for this area to prosper on the world market. And in the case of international education, it is not just the direct teaching and revenue generation and spin-offs, such as tuition, housing, transportation and other spending by foreign students, that will help. Bell said when dealing with people in Asia, it takes time to build up relationships and trust. During a recent trade mission to China, one of that country’s biggest banks announced its first North American branch would be located in Vancouver.

Asked by Premier Christy Clark why, the bank’s vice-chairman said part of it was that he went to UBC and knows the area and his daughter currently attends Simon Fraser University. Part of the jobs plan also calls for a qualified and available workforce. To that end, Bell said the province is concentrating funding for trades at B.C. colleges like never before, especially outside of the major metropolitan areas of Greater Vancouver and Greater Victoria. “Part of this (plan) is that all the regions benefit,” he said. With a growing middle class that is hungry for goods, as well as travel outside of their own country, Bell said B.C. is perfectly placed to benefit from the Chinese market and it figures to aggressively do so with the jobs plan. “Opportunities are enormous with the Chinese and Indian markets,” he said. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Break-in, house fire leads to arrest An 18-year-old is facing charges of disregard for human life and break and enter following a troubling early morning series of events in a Black Mountain neighbourhood. Brandon Seberras-Pic has been charged in connection with both an attempted house burglary in the 1500 block of Feedham Avenue at 1:56 a.m. on Feb. 16, and a house fire that started near the same time at a home on Large Avenue. Kelowna RCMP were alerted to the break and enter by the Feedham Avenue home resident, who reported someone had broken into his home and when confronted, had taken off on foot. The man was tracked by a police dog to a nearby residence and arrested. At 1:58 a.m., the Kelowna RCMP were alerted to the Large Avenue residential fire by the Kelowna Fire Department. The parents and their two children were able to flee the house after the fire started at the rear of the home. The mother and two kids were treated for minor smoke inhalation, while the father was sent to hospital for treatment

Schools celebrate Awards make university dream a reality Harmony Day W EDUCATION

For James Beaton it was a chance to change his life, to pursue a dream, to achieve something he once thought impossible. The Bachelor of Arts student at the UBC Okanagan campus received the James R. Conway Scholarship and Bursary Endowment two years ago, allowing him to leave his home town of Coaldale, Alta., and pursue higher education—a dream that at one point, he thought would never happen. “I felt that I just wasn’t supposed to go to university—the costs and the risks were so high, but receiving the scholarship encouraged me to push the boundaries that I had always imagined were there,” said Beaton. “This scholarship gave me significant reassurance that I was not com-

The awards numbers Crunching the numbers at UBC’s Okanagan campus: 2005 winter term: Total awards: 511 Total recipients: 298 Total awards sum: $641,756 Average per award: $1,256 Average per recipient: $2,154 2011 winter term: Total awards: 1,111 Total recipients: 826 Total awards sum: $1,587,623 Average per award: $1,429 Average per recipient: $1,922 pletely without a means of attainting my dream.” Thanks to Conway’s support, Beaton is achieving his academic goals and one day hopes to pursue a law degree and a career with the United Nations in international law.

“Choosing to pursue a job in this area will allow me to add my voice to those already calling out for justice,” he said. With less financial stress, Beaton made the Dean’s List in his first year and won the Deputy Vice-

Chancellor Scholarship, which is assisting him financially in his second year. As a new UBC Residence Advisor, Beaton is helping other new students find confidence and their place on campus. At the start of classes in 2011, more than $1.5million in awards helped students attend the university—more than double the total when the UBC Okanagan campus was established in 2005. Wesley Pue, provost and vice-principal, says scholarships play an important role, not only for the student, but the university as well. “Scholarships allow students some financial freedom to attend a postsecondary institution,” said Pue. “Scholarships are also a strong recruiting tool that allows the university to bring some of the brightest minds to the Okanagan. Every year we see more and more people wanting to attend UBC’s Okanagan campus and these scholarships make that a reality for many students.” A wide variety of scholarships are available to secondary school students, aboriginal students, students with disabilities, foreign students as well as current students. “UBC’s Okanagan campus strives to provide an unmatched post-secondary education, and to attract the best students from all segments of society. That commitment

is reflected in the number and variety of scholarships presented each year,” said Pue. But scholarships go beyond monetary gain, says Spiro Yannacopoulos, associate dean and director of the school of engineering, which has numerous scholarship holders. “In many cases, the more important reason is the prestige it gives to the student,” said Yannacopoulos. “A scholarship is a recognition of the achievement for the student. When they apply for graduate school or a job, this is quite important.” Yannacopoulos says scholarships are also an endorsement of the university and its programs. “Scholarships and awards are a good measure of how well a university or a program at a university is received,” he explained, adding one of the ways a university is ranked is by the number of scholarships and awards its students receive. Adrienne Nolan, director of development at UBCO, says donors help the university with its stated objective of keeping finances from being a barrier to attend the institution. “They make sure finances are not an obstacle for gifted students,” said Nolan. “New awards are an excellent way for donors to UBC to help students. They know they have created something positive for a student with great potential.”

Schools in the Central Okanagan School District will celebrate the 5th annual Harmony Day in conjunction with GlobalCitizens Week. Harmony Day was established in 2008 with the goal to foster an environment in which people of different cultures, ages, ethnicities, and interests can be in harmony. In such an environment, our students can feel safe and inspired to reach their potential academically and personally. Each school has its own creative approach to celebrating this event. For example, Springvalley Elementary is hosting its annual International Tea, where traditional teas from around the world will be served by students from these countries. At Quigley Elementary, students will hold events throughout the entire week including assemblies, a Cultural Dress Day, and learning different greetings and songs from around the world. At Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary, students interested in international development will have the chance to Skype with a nurse working in Haiti.

District Science Fair opens up the world Have you ever wondered about the secret lives of bacteria, how much DNA can fit into a cell, how gears work or what causes a tornado? These and many other questions will be answered at the District Science Fair, which takes place Thursday, 4-7 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at the Okanagan College Learning Centre on the Kelowna campus. A highlight of the year for inquisitive science students, the fair is also an opportunity to impress the judges and possibly win a spot in this year’s regional fair at UBCO. From there, the top six students in British Columbia will travel to a national fair in Prince Edward Island to compete for $400,000 in prizes and scholarships. Central Okanagan science teachers Marnie Birkeland, Marlon Brown, Robert Plaxton, Jenn Moffatt, Wynter Oakes, and Dayna Margetts are key organizers of the district fair, which will encompass more than 100 student science projects. “Science Fair is such a fabulous opportunity for students to investigate the world around them, to use the scientific method and to practice their presentation skills to judges from our community,” said science teacher Marnie Birkeland.

Robert Smithson tos abatement services or testing, until further order of the court.� Still, Moore continued to operate in the demolition business under various trade names. Evidence from an employee indicated that he had worked on 15 to 16 sites following service of the court’s restraining order. B.C.’s Workers’ Compensation Board brought contempt proceedings when it learned Moore was continuing to do business in violation of the order. In October 2011, Moore was found guilty of contempt. At that time, the court determined “his misconduct grievously endangered workers under his

direction. Unless he can in some way mitigate his indifference to the lives and safety of his workers and his open defiance of the injunction, his misconduct requires a severe response.� The court further determined that Moore did not provide proper safety training or equipment to his employees and that this was exacerbated by his targeted recruitment of vulnerable workers. His conduct was found to pose “a significant public safety concern.� In sentencing him to 60 days in jail, the court stated: “Mr. Moore’s indifference to the lives and safety of his workers and his open defiance of the injunction requires a severe response. Mr. Moore put in danger the lives and safety of others and continued to do so in the face of a court order. Others must know that they cannot ignore injunctions obtained to protect worker safety with impunity.� The court stated, di-

rectly to Mr. Moore: “You deliberately flaunted for an extended time a court order intended to protect worker safety. You did so within a day of being served with the order. Such conduct cannot go unpunished. “Taking into account the seriousness of the contempt, the protection of the public, and the degree of intention involved in the contemptuous conduct, I sentence you to a period of incarceration of 60 days.� I can’t recall the last time an employer so thoroughly and persistently ignored its legal obligations that its owner ended up in jail. That’s a good thing, I’m sure. This whole episode is notable to me not just because of the audacity and thick-headedness of Mr. Moore but because it reminds me of a discussion I’ve had a hundred or more times with employer clients. Employers, when we are discussing the tight

web of statutory obligations they face, will often comment to me that the regulations are too restrictive and make doing business difficult. They will ask why the rules are so restrictive and, in most cases, inflexible. Regrettably, the only answer I have for them is that the statutory net has to be woven tightly so as to catch the most likely offenders. In order to avoid letting the little, slippery fish slip through, the restrictions must be designed in

such a fashion that they also end up catch the bigger, compliant ones. It’s too bad that’s the case, because in my view employers like Arthur Moore and AM Environmental make doing business more difficult and costly for everybody else. For the moment, Mr. Moore has received his just desserts and I imagine just about everyone, employers and employees alike, is happy to see this fellow in jail.

Bridge toll may cost Clark votes Premier Christy Clark may have lost lost thousands of votes south of the Fraser River in the Lower Mainland by stating on Monday that there will be no revisiting of the B.C. Liberal policy on bridge tolling. Clark was unequivocal that the new Port Mann Bridge will be tolled (at about $3 per trip) when it opens, but there will be no other tolls on any Lower Mainland bridges or tunnels. She is reinforcing the policy, which means that Langley and

Surrey residents have the only two toll bridges in B.C. as their major options, if travelling north of the Fraser River. Of course, there are the free options of the 75-year-old Pattullo Bridge, the Alex Fraser Bridge or the Massey Tunnel, but distance suggests that few outlying Fraser Valley residents will choose those options when crossing the river. Many mayors have suggested that a region-wide tolling policy, of perhaps $1 per cross-

ing, could bring in extra revenue for TransLink and bring about fairness for all who use bridges and tunnels. No longer would drivers be punished, based on where they live. This is a sensible alternative and would still allow the province to recoup the funds it is using in building the new bridge and improving Highway 1 from Langley to Vancouver. But Clark can’t see that. Despite the fact that her government has brought in no less

than 50 reviews of the Gordon Campbell government’s policies on a wide variety of subjects, she can’t see the wisdom of reversing the Campbell tolling policy. The premier needs to take a page from legendary B.C. Premier W.A.C. Bennett and take a “sober second look” at a policy that punishes people based on where they live. Such second looks allowed Bennett to stay in power for 20 years.

edia owners getting involved in politics has always been a controversial subject—at least elsewhere. Here in Kelowna, it doesn’t seem to raise an eyebrow. Last week FourChange.com, a now defunct Kelowna political activist group that led a campaign to oust four incumbent councillors in November’s civic election, revealed how much it spent on its campaign, and who the major financial contributors were. Of the $30,838 it raised and the $30,766 it spent, the biggest single donor was Nick Frost, owner of the popular Kelowna Internet news site Castanet. Frost put up $3,961 of his own

ding personal political views that you should be able to express. But criticism of a media owner getting involved in politics in B.C. is nothing new. The owner of this newspaper and many more across B.C., David Black, found himself in the hot water of adverse public opinion in 1998 when he instructed the editors of his papers (the Capital News was not a Black Press paper at the time) not to run editorials in favour of B.C.’s first modern day treaty with an Indian band, the Nishga. While editors were to follow the directive and run a series of columns critical of the treaty that Black commissioned, Black Press columnists were free to write in support of the treaty and letters to the editor sup-

porting it were allowed as well. Two complaints to the B.C. Press Council—one from the government—about Black’ s directive were tossed out because of the latter provisions. But it did not stop the public outcry, or the public perception that people who own media outlets should not be trying to sway public opinion in such an overt way. But not here. Not now. In Frost’s case, it was his own action, his own money and his own point of view. He did not use Castanet to sound FourChange’s clarion call. But I wonder if the public reaction would be as muted if the publisher of this newspaper, or the of the Daily Courier, had done the same thing? awaters@kelownacapnews.com

W HIGHWAY INTERSECTIONS

Another unnecessary traffic fatality To the editor: Last week, I sat and watched as a young mother attempted to explain to her three year old why the policeman was in their home, why she was crying, and why the child’s grandmother (the latest victim of an accident at a Kelowna intersection) wouldn’t be coming home. I began to cry. Another family has been devastated by a crash that should not have been allowed to happen.

For years it has been known that the intersections along Highway 97 and Highway 33 in the Kelowna area are dangerous due to the high number of collisions which occur at these traffic points. Many of these collisions occur when vehicles attempt to turn left at the intersections and conflict with traffic that is traveling in the opposite direction. We have all heard of instances of people “run-

ning the yellow light” or “failing to yield when turning,” resulting in these collisions, which have caused both injury and death to innocent people. A violation ticket issued after the fact to the offending driver may change that person’s driving habits, but it doesn’t make any of these major intersections safer. What is required is a change to the traffic light pattern at these major intersections to restrict ve-

hicles to making lefthand turns only when they are allowed to do so on a green arrow, while traffic traveling in the opposite direction is stopped at a red light. Doing so would make it safer for both turning and through traffic. This traffic light pattern is in place at a couple of intersections in the Kelowna area, but needs to be expanded to include all of the intersections on this traffic corridor.

Without these changes, we will continue to see innocent victims being taken from their families. The B.C.

Council asked to reject twin tower proposal The developers will argue that the bylaws should be varied so they can build a gigantic twin tower monolith on a tiny plot of land approximately 18 feet behind The Madison development. They will say their project will bring attainable housing to the downtown because of the number of smaller studios in their development. They will produce a visual impact assessment that pictures those 22 and 26-storey buildings as almost the same height as the adjacent 15-storey Madison building. They will also ask the council for permission to allow the development to proceed with a significantly reduced number of car parking spaces, which means that hundreds of extra vehicles would be forced to clog up much needed parking in the vicinity. In return for granting this extraordinary planning permission, the developers would free up a small amount of space for an art gallery in the building. They will also discuss a spurious scheme for short-term accommodation for visitors to our local hospital as a ploy to disguise the lack of parking within the building. There will also be suggestions that valuable jobs can only be

created in the community by letting this twin tower proposal proceed rather than just being a single tower, and that the city council will be failing the community if they do not accede to the developer’s demands. The current OCP is actually perfectly suited for downtown and the rules clearly state that the body of the building above the base should contribute, but not dominate the physical and visual quality of the streetscape. It suggests a minimum distance of 40 metres between highrise developments and has great guidelines to preserve view corridors between buildings. So it is amazing to me to see Premier Pacific applying to build an extra 22-storey building only 10 feet away from a 26-storey building on this extremely small plot. I am an interested party because I live downtown at The Madison on Ellis Street. I have a vested personal interest in seeing downtown develop in a mature, intelligent and forward thinking way. I believe that the newly elected city council shares these views and that the majority of Kelowna residents would also want to see downtown development proceed based on fantastic architectur-

al design, rather than demonstrable corporate greed trying to get a “quart into a pint plot.” I ask Kelowna residents to stop approval of this oversized development by attending the council meeting on March and arguing that the variances should not be granted. You can also write to the Kelowna city clerk and suggest that the existing bylaws are perfectly adequate for successful downtown development. Why should these greedy developers be allowed to effectively double the permitted density of the plot and ruin the skyline of our downtown? Surely a 26-storey tower positioned to guarantee all view corridors and with adequate parking, which wouldn’t impact the local community, should generate sufficient profit for any developer— even in today’s tough economic climate. You could also write to city council to express your concerns, but be sure the letter reaches council by March 5 to be considered by the councillors.

Parcel tracking slammed To the editor: Re: Adam Negrytch’s letter of last Thursday (Mail 17 Days and Waiting to Make a 14-hour Trip, Capital News, Feb. 16). I know exactly where you are coming from Adam. I knew I could not be the only dissatisfied customer of our national mail service, which continues to go downhill with each passing federal government that we find ourselves voting into office. Have any of you tried the tracking service on the Canada Post website? In my humble opinion, it sucks big time. For instance, what is the point of be-

W DOWNTOWN KELOWNA

To the editor: On March 6, Kelowna city council will have an open meeting at City Hall to hear an application by Premier Pacific Group, which is planning to build a major project on the parcel of land directly behind The Madison building at Doyle Avenue and St. Paul Road in Kelowna. The proposal seeks to run roughshod over existing bylaws by including two highrise towers of 22 and 26 storeys. It is proposed that these two highrise buildings will have 241 residences, nine live/work studios, plus office space and would operate as short-term residential hotel accommodation, rented out on a daily basis. Kelowna definitely needs quality downtown accommodation and the city council has developed a workable community plan that prevents over-development, protects view corridors and introduces space between highrise buildings. Sadly, the proposal by Premier Pacific Group seeks to ignore our city council’s carefully crafted Official Community Plan, to seek numerous variations to the city bylaws that were designed to protect and enhance the aesthetic quality of our downtown.

I for one would like to know precisely where my package is “in the system.” I don’t need to be told that my parcel has been delivered to me, without an explanation telling where it got to on its mystery tour to my mailbox.

Protecting benefit for seniors for our future generations T

U.S. war on terror examined The Kelowna chapter of Amnesty International will showcase a documentary about the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan, called Taxi To the Dark Side, at the Kelowna campus theatre of Okanagan College. The film will be shown Friday, Feb. 24, 7:30 p.m. Using the torture and death in 2002 of an innocent Afghan taxi driver as an example, this film examines the changes after 9/11 into U.S. policy towards suspects in the war on terror.

Other Canadians, who are not near retirement, will receive substantial notice of changes to OAS, to ensure they have ample time to plan for their future. Seniors should rest assured that they will always be well supported, not only through retirement income, but also because of the positive changes that have taken place under this government—providing $2.3 billion annually in tax relief through pension-income splitting, increasing the age credit and increasing the Guaranteed Income Supplement, the largest increase to the GIS in 25 years.

Amidst these changing demographics, the annual cost of the Old Age Security program is projected to increase from $36 billion in 2010 to $108 billion in 2030.

Canadians will have a strong, stable retirement income system for generations to come. I have heard loud and clear from my constituents that the government needs to live within its means. As elected officials, we also need to lead by example. That is why the prime minister, since 2010, has frozen the wages and budgets of all MPS and cabinet ministers and why we are also reviewing our pensions and benefits. I support making changes to these as well. The bottom line is the federal government is committed to being fiscally responsible, to maintaining lower taxes and to creating an economic climate that creates jobs. Tough decisions or not we are here to get the job done for the taxpayers of Canada. Ron Cannan is the MP for Kelowna-Lake Country.

he Old Age Security Act came into force in 1952, replacing the provinciallyrun, means-tested old age benefit system that came before it. Since then, various changes have taken place to OAS including the drop in age of eligibility from 70 to 65, phasedin between 1965-1969; the establishment of the Guaranteed Income Supplement in 1967; and a full cost-of-living indexation on a quarterly basis by 1973. Today, OAS is available to any Canadian citizen or permanent resident 65 years or older who has lived in the country for at least 10 years. OAS pays a maximum benefit of $540.12 a month for seniors with less than $69,562 in annual net income, a benefit that is gradually reduced until it disappears for those earning more than $112,772. Unlike the Canada Pension Plan which is funded by premiums from each of our paycheques and is on a safe, secure and sustainable path, OAS is funded entirely by government revenues by taxpayers like you and me—and it is not sustainable in its current form. In 1975, there were seven working taxpayers for every senior. Because our population is getting older, today there are only four working-age Canadi-

One business dream that did come true M

any of us who may become entrepreneurs often do so at later stages in our lives through changes in our personal circumstances. Embracing an interest, leaving employment, identifying captivating technology that we have created or stumbled upon from afar…the roots of an entrepreneurial pursuit can be imbedded from a myriad of sources. But for today’s entrepreneurial story, I have discovered a young Okanagan entrepreneur who began his path at a very early age with much conviction. Loyal Wooldridge, hair stylist extraordinaire, began his journey as an aspiring entrepreneur, believe it or not, right here in West Kelowna. Wooldridge was born in Creston, where his fa-

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young ther was an RCMP member in the Kootenay West detachment. The family moved to West Kelowna when he was eight years of age. While a student at Mount Boucherie Secondary, Wooldridge recalled to me that he began to experience what has become his signature creative side—he felt a desire to take a cosmetology training program after his high school graduation. In 2003, at 18 years of age, he graduated and knew at that crossroad in his life that he wanted launch his own venture. But, he saw that happening only after he would spend what would be the next three years working in four different beauty salons to hone his craft and learn the entrepreneurial skills required

to design and establish his own salon. By 2006, Wooldridgewas was ready for the challenge of becoming a genuine entrepreneur. He searched the Central Okanagan for a location. He ultimately discovered that there was no salon at that time in North Glenmore, so he was fortunate to find an ideal location in the Glen Park Centre, which to me is one of the prettiest malls I have seen in the Central Okanagan area— feels cozy just being there walking amidst the shops. So Wooldridge opened his new business to that environment in 2006, calling it Loyal Hair Therapy, and this young Okanagan Valley entrepreneur has never looked back since. Wooldridge is very proud in his accomplishment as a purveyor of ultra-confidence, as he so aptly states, for those who choose to own their place in the world, control their own path and value their self-image as a reflection of their distinct identity. He and his staff of six

That being said, in confidence he whispered to me that his next level of entrepreneurial adventure is on the horizon, and you may expect resounding news about it during the next few months. If you wish a skin and hair experience to enhance your own healthy lifestyle, you may wish to take a look at Wooldridge’s website at www. loyalhairtherapy.ca and schedule an introductory visit to his location at 112-1940 Kane Rd. in North Glenmore.

You would be required to dispose of them in the proprietorship at that value. So a disposal of a capital asset could give rise to a capital gain or loss and possibly the recapture of capital cost allowance. There is a section in the income tax act that deals specifically with this issue called Section 85. Accountants call this a section 85 rollover. Normally, when there is a transfer or sale of assets between two unrelated parties, the transfer happens at fair market value. Section 69 of the Income Tax Act requires that when this transfer occurs between related persons such as a shareholder of a corporation and the corporation, it also be carried out at fair market value. Section 85 allows a difference between the proceeds of disposition and fair market value on the assets being transferred so that tax on the

THE TEAM representing the Okanagan College school of business—(from left) Emily Johnson, professor Rick Appleby, Gavin MacVicar and Breanna Retzlaff—finished third in the Vanier BDC Marketing Case Competition.

OC business students impress contest judges Students from the Okanagan School of Business placed third among 30 colleges and institutes in the seventh annual Vanier BDC Marketing Case Competition held in Montreal earlier this month. The team consisted of third-year Bachelor of Business Administration degree students Emily Johnson, Gavin MacVicar, and Breanna Retzlaff, coached by school of business professor Rick Appleby. In the competition each team had to take a real business case, analyzing it in less than three hours and prepare a 20minute presentation. The first day’s case focused on a start-up boardshop business in Calgary. From among the 30 participants, the judges chose six finalists. Their Sunday started at 7:30 a.m. when they were presented a new case about the challenges facing a cabinet-making business in Lethbridge. The final team presentations were to six judges from different backgrounds and companies as

well as the other 100+ students, coaches, and public. Presentations were in the official language preferred by each team, making for an interesting multicultural experience. Each presentation was carefully monitored with penalties for being less than 18 minutes. Presentations were stopped at 20 minutes, whether complete or not. A five-minute period followed the presentation with judges peppering the students with questions. “I listen to presentations from real businesses and startups every week,� said Steve Abrams, a part-

ner with the IT Venture Fund at BDC Venture Capital. “As a first time judge, I was very impressed with the quality of the presentations, especially given the students only have three hours to prepare.� The Okanagan School of Business students each commented about enjoying the experience but their greatest takeaway was best reflected in Emily Johnson’s comment: “This was such a great experience to see and hear such a diversity of ideas. It definitely will enable me to do better in my courses and career.� The first-place team was Mohawk College from Hamilton, Ont., with second place going to College Lionel Groulx, Que.

the following year while the sole proprietorship has until June 15 to file its tax return. In this case, the return would need to be filed by June 15. The shareholder needs to receive some sort of consideration for the assets they transferred into the corporation. Usually this is in the form of at least one share of the corporation and either cash or a promissory note. The consideration received needs to be fair market value as well. The T2057 requires that an amount of consideration

received be placed opposite the value of the asset being transferred so that it is easy to determine what was received by the transferor per asset to make sure that the asset was transferred at fair market value. If preferred shares are received as consideration, care must be taken to make sure that the shares are retractable, entitled to dividends and have priority over the other shares in the event of a dissolution. Along with the transfer of assets on section 85, the debts related to those

assets can also be transferred as in the case of a transfer of land and buildings and the associated mortgage to those land and buildings. In addition, the transfer may trigger the requirement to pay property purchase tax or GST/ HST. Form GST44 can be used to exempt the transfer from the GST/HST tax, however, there is no form that exempts the property purchase tax.

Simplicity key for Alberta trip

Hot start for Scott at the Scotties

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Rockets suffered the consequences of not being prepared to play two of the top teams from Alberta last week on home ice. Expect the WHL club to have its eyes wide open heading into a demanding four-game, five-day road trip beginning Wednesday night in Edmonton against the Eastern Conferenceleading Oil Kings. “Every one of these Central Division teams we’re going play on this trip is a good team, they’re big teams and they can all skate,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “We have to play simple and play unselfish. When we don’t play that way we get into trouble.” Last Wednesday night, trouble found the Rockets who were dominated in a 6-3 loss to Edmonton, then on Friday were humbled 7-1 by the Calgary Hitmen for their sixth straight defeat. But the Rockets (2527-3-5) bounced back on Saturday night with a morale-boosting 4-3 shootout

win over Red Deer and, at the very least, head into their tour of Alberta in an improved state of mind. “It was huge, not just getting the win but just the difference in the way we played compared to some of the games before that,” said Rockets goaltender Adam Brown. “We played for the 60 full minutes and even though we got down, the guys battled back. It was a morale booster and shows what we can do if we work hard and play as a team.” With 12 games remaining in the regular season, the Rockets are firmly entrenched in sixth overall in the Western Conference with little likelihood of any change, either up or down. So with little prospect of moving up what will the Rockets look to accomplish over the final month of the 2011-12 campaign ? “The big picture goal is to get playing at a level that we need to playing at for the playoffs,” said Brown. “It’s not a light switch you can just turn on and off. We have to really crank it up, keep

Prior to Saturday, the 19-year-old forward had scored just four times in his last 16 games. The Rockets will visit the Lethbridge Hurricanes Friday, the Medicine Hat Tigers on Saturday, and Calgary on Sunday. Four players won’t be making the trip due to in-

jury: Colton Sissons (concussion), Mitchell Chapman (upper body), Filip Vasko (lower body), Spencer Main (concussion). Kelowna’s next home action is Saturday, March 3 vs Kamloops. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

W WESTSIDE WARRIORS

Warriors eliminated from BCHL playoffs The Westside Warriors have been officially eliminated from the B.C. Hockey League playoff race. The Warriors dropped

two overtime games on the weekend, falling 4-3 to the Chilliwack Chiefs on Sunday after a 3-2 loss to the Vernon Vipers in extra time on Saturday night.

With just four teams in each conference qualifying for the BCHL playoffs this year, it means the Warriors will be on the outside looking in, missing the

Two-time Canadian champ Kelly Scott was in fine form through her first four games at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The Kelowna foursome took a 4-0 record into Monday’s evening’s draw in Red Deer against Nova Scotia’s Heather Smith-Dacey. A final score wasn’t available at Capital News press time. The Scott team made it four wins in as many tries Monday morning with a 7-5 victory over Team Canada’s Amber Holland. The Kelowna rink earned the win in the absence of third Sasha Carter who was too ill to play. Alternate Sherry Fraser moved into the second position, joining third Dailene Sivertson and lead Jacquie Armstrong. “We thought it was food poisoning, now it looks like the flu,” Scott said of Carter’s situation on curl.ca. “A lot of our family and friends seem to have it today.” On Tuesday, Scott was scheduled to play Alberta in an afternoon draw, and Newfoundland in the evening. The Page playoff system, featuring the top four teams, will begin on Friday night in Red Deer. The Scotties Tournament of Hearts national final is set for Sunday at 12:30 Pacific time. Scott won the Canadian title in both 2006

Kelly Scott and 2007.

SENIOR CURLING…

Dennis Graber and his rink from the Prince George Curling Club downed Royal City’s Doug Meger 7-4 Sunday at the Kelowna Curling Club to capture the 2012 B.C. senior men’s curling title. Meger jumped out to a 4-1 lead through five ends but Graber, who finished first in the round robin with a 6-1 record, stole deuces in the eighth and ninth ends to secure the victory. Graber is joined on the P.G. foursome by third Brian Windsor, second Garnet Boese, and lead David Johnston. The Graber rink will represent B.C. at the Canadian senior’s championship March 17 to 25 in Abbotsford. The local favourite, Kelowna’s Rob Koffski, missed the playoffs with a 3-4 record.

Heatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic first season ends in Winnipeg By reaching the postseason, the UBC Okanagan menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball squad had already accomplished what few first-year programs have ever done in the history of Canada West athletics. However, winning a playoff series over an established CIS powerhouse proved to be too much to ask of the Heat. The No. 2-ranked Manitoba Bisons took down UBCO in consecutive matches on Thursday and Friday night in Winnipeg, to win the best-ofthree first-round quarterfinal series 2-0. The Bisons advance to both the Canada West final tournament this weekend and the CIS championship next month. Even though though they were swept 3-0 both nights, the Heat put up a formidable fight. The deciding match saw Manitoba win 25-19, 25-20, 2520. Head coach Greg Poitras had high praise for his Heat who made the Canada West postseason with an 8-12 record, which included five wins in their last six matches.

the playoffs, that is a lesson for our guy. That is invaluable experience that we maybe couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have gotten for three years.â&#x20AC;?

HEAT VETERANS Mark Broome (left) and Nate

Speijer saw their Canada West volleyball season end Friday night in Winnipeg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could have been sitting at home right now wishing we were in the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? said Poitras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead, we got to experience Canada West Playoffs and that is a major step going into next

year. We got to experience playoffs in our first year, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge. Seeing how teams go from the start of the year and how they get their form the start of the playoffs, and how sharp the top teams are in

On Friday, the block of Manitoba consistently shut down the Heat, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the number of the blocks as much as the timing. The Bisons finished with 11 blocks on the night, four in the first set, 2.5 in the second and 4.5 in the third. The dynamic duo of fourth-year outside hitters once again led the Heat offense as Nate Speijer and Riley McFarland had17 kills and four blocks, and 10 kills and eight digs, re-

spectively. The second and third sets were carbon copies of the first with Manitoba able to block any Heat rally with strong defensive play at the net. In the end, the Bisons played like the second best team in the nation ending UBC Okanaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely successful season in the first round of the Canada West post season. In playing his last volleyball game for the Uni-

versity fifth-year setter Preston Tucker was able to take the ending in stride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really thought about it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an emotional guy,â&#x20AC;? Tucker said. With the experience his young players gained from the exposure to the playoffs, Poitras is excited about his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m super proud of the guys, and super proud of the new players showing their toughness, that was the most impressive

thing. First-year libero Jeremy Fostvelt is one example, the pressure he has in that position and he is the youngest player in the gym, in the toughest position.â&#x20AC;? The Heat will bid farewell to at least three players from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad, as setter Preston Tucker, middle Mark Broome and libero Spencer Brown all have used up their five years of eligibility.

Alpine events The K2/U16 provincial ski championships were held last weekend at the Apex Mountain Resort, hosted by the Apex Ski Club. This was race one of two for the K2 provincials series consisting of the technical disciplines of slalom and giant slalom. Thursday through Sunday brought almost perfect race conditions with mild weather and sunshine. Clubs from throughout the Lower Mainland, Kootenay, Okanagan and Prince George competed in the four-day event including several

racers from the Big White Racers. There were 77 female and 77 male racers registered from throughout the province. The top finishing local racers were: • Ella Alfonso placed third overall and first in the 1998 age group in the women’s giant slalom race. She was also first for her age in the women’s slalom and 6th overall. • In the men’s giant slalom, Alex Roehrig hit the podium in third place while Ryan Moffat placed first in the 1998 age category. Moffat followed that with a third place

Owls fall to Van College, beat WRCA The Kelowna Owls continued to tune up for the upcoming Okanagan Valley and B.C. senior boys basketball championships with a split of two exhibition games over the weekend on the Lower Mailand. On Friday, the topranked Owls fell to a B.C. opponent for the first time since early December, losing 88-71 to the No. 4-ranked Vancouver College Fighting Irish 88-71. Senior point guard Mitch Goodwin paced KSS with 18 points and

eight rebounds, with Braxston Bunce adding 16 points. KSS bounced back with a solid effort on Saturday, beating No. 10 White Rock Christian Academy 79-58. Goodwin connected for 30 points and nine rebounds for the Owls, while Truss and John Katerburg hit for 15 points apiece. “This weekend was to see where we are and we are not close to where we need to be yet,” said Owls coach Harry Parmar. “The

positive is we still have time to work kinks out. It is better to know what we need to do now than at B.C’s or valleys.” KSS is 27-5 overall this season. The Owls wrap up league play on Tuesday night on home to Mt. Boucherie. KSS is 11-0 in Okanagan Valley action this season. Last week, the Owls rang up two league victories. Buzz Truss had 17 points, Neven Knezevic added 13 points and 11 boards, and Darrion

Bunce scored 12 with 11 rebounds in a 77-52 triumph Monday over Rutland. On Wednesday, KSS took down South Kamloops 95-76. Braxston Bunce had 28 points and 19 rebounds, while Goodwin added 18 points and eight boards, and Truss scored 18. The Owls will be in Kamloops March 1 to 3 for the valley championship. The provincial AAA championship goes March 13 to 17 in Langley.

The Okanagan Rockets appear to be hitting their stride at the right time of the season. The Rockets won two close games over the Vancouver NorthEast Chiefs on the weekend, winning 3-2 and 6-5 on the road to slide into a tie for third place with just a couple of weeks left before the B.C. Major Midget League playoffs. Parker Bowles led the team on Sunday, scoring all three goals in a 3-2 win over Vancouver. On Saturday Harlan Orr scored the winner with just over a minute to play in a 6-5 win. With four games remaining in the BCMML regular season, the Rockets are 18-10-8 and need just a single point to clinch a playoff birth.

“We obviously feel great coming off this weekend’s performance, however we realize that we have a very tough team in the Vancouver NW Giants coming to the Capital News Centre this weekend,” said manager David Michaud. “Then we go on a long trip to Nanaimo to finish things off against a Silvertips team that is fighting for their playoff lives. We aren’t in a position to take anything for granted just yet.” On Saturday Morgan Johnston netted the hat trick to lead the offense while Jordan Burns and Josh Ellis also scored before Orr’s game winner. Brenden Mills picked up the win in net. On Sunday Harrison Whitlock kicked out 26 of

28 shots in the win.

NOTES…

Bowles is zeroing in on Okanagan Rockets records for goals scored and points. Bowles’ 33 goals moves him into a tie with James Dobrolowski for the most goals in a single season for the Rockets and he is now just a single point behind the 68 points Dobrolowski set during the same season for the overall points record in a single season by a Rocket...The Rockets host the Giants this weekend with Vancouver sitting at 28-4-6 on the season. The Giants have already clinched a 5th consecutive BCMML regular season crown. Games go Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Capital News Centre.

Rubadeau receives honor Another feather in the cap for the Central Okanagan Sailing Association and longtime volunteer Rob Rubadeau. The Canadian Yachting Association (CYA) awarded the 2011 Volunteer of the Year to Rubadeau at their annual awards ceremonies in Toronto earlier this month, rewarding a lifetime of hard work from the Kelowna man. Rubadeau has been an instrumental part of the race committee at five world championships, more than 30 national championships, and countless regional regattas. He has taught sailing and race management courses to kids and adults, and has lent his handyman and policy development skills to his local club to ensure that they remain one of the best sailing facilities in Canada. Rubadeau has also

Ron Rubadeau been a volunteer at the annual Canadian Olympic Regatta at Kingston (CORK) for more than 20 years. According to Tim Irwin, regatta chair, “Ron is one of our very best senior national race officers and as a result is assigned to govern the courses for Olympic qualifiers,” said Irwin. “He’s got a great personality for dealing with anxious competitors and has a reputation for running fair, safe, and fun races. He’s one of the reasons that CORK hosts

sailors from all over the world at our internationally acclaimed regattas.” The recent award is not the first time that CYA has acknowledged Rubadeau. In 1998 he won the Ted Chisholm trophy for being the best race officer in Canada, while COSA, his local sailing club was awarded CYA’s most outstanding sailing school in 1991 and in 2000. Ron was also awarded B.C. Sailing’s Volunteer of the Year in 2005, the City of Kelowna’s Fred Macklin (Man of the Year) award in 2008, and the B.C. School Superintendent Association’s Superintendent of the Year in 2005. Rubadeau did little volunteering this last year as he has been battling cancer but says his spirits are high. “My health is improving and I hope to be back on the water this spring,” he said.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen comfort foods Deep in winter, there’s nothing quite like comfort foods, like Mom used to make—or Granny, or your favourite aunt! I think they’re comfort foods because they take you back to your childhood, but perhaps it’s just that they’re warm, which is nice and comforting when it’s cold outside—or maybe it’s something to do with their flavours. Or, maybe it’s because they’re simple, basic, traditional foods with familiar flavours. Whatever it is, these recipes create what I would call comforting dishes that the family is sure to like. They’re also nourishing and nutritious dinners that are pretty much a complete meal in the one dish. I mean you may wish to add a little garlic toast with the chicken or serve a salad with both of them, but both contain meat and vegetables in a single dish. Both are also dinners which will heat up very well for a second dinner a couple of days later, or for lunches so you get an extra bang for your buck, or your effort in this case. As the days begin to get noticeably longer, you may wish to think about starting your first herb seeds on the windowsill to transplant into the garden once it warms up a bit. There’s nothing like the uplifting flavour fresh herbs can provide to a dish. Even the simplest cooking benefits from their addition. For instance a plain omelette is elevated to another level just by snipping a few fresh chives into it, as are scrambled eggs. A few tarragon leaves are also most excellent in simple egg dishes. Both are very easy herbs to grow and they come back year after year, even in our climate. Parsley and oregano are also indispensable herbs. Parsley will live for two years, and go to seed the second, so if you leave the seedhead, they’ll seed themselves and oregano is pretty tough as long as it’s in the sun. Thyme is a beauty as well as tough, so I grow mine (several varieties) in the flower bed, with a couple of sage plants in the background. Many of the recipes in my new book, Jude’s Kitchen, call for fresh herbs, so if you grow them, you’ll never be at a loss for how to use them. The recipes are arranged in the book by the season the main ingredients are at their best. It’s available wherever books are sold.

Garlic & Cheese Mashed Potato -topped Meatloaf

Chicken Cacciatore This is the kind of comfort food you loved in your childhood. It makes a huge difference to the flavour if you use fresh basil which is available in the produce section. This is scrumptious. I used double the amount of oregano, fresh. 8 chicken thighs drizzle of olive oil 1 large onion 1 green pepper 1/2 red pepper 2 stalks celery 8 mushrooms 2 large garlic cloves 14 oz. (398 l) diced tomatoes 2 tsp. (10 ml) dried oregano 1/2 c. (125 ml) chicken stock 1/4 c. (60 ml) dry, red wine salt & pepper, to taste sliced black olives

3 tbsp. (45 ml) fresh basil leaves Skin chicken thighs and brown in a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven or large pot. Meanwhile, coarsely chop onion, sweet peppers, celery and mushrooms and mince garlic. Remove chicken from the pot and add onion, stirring until it turns translucent, a few minutes. Add garlic and mushrooms and stir for a few minutes. Then add remaining ingredients except the fresh basil leaves and return the chicken to the mix. Bring to bubbling, then turn down to simmer on low, covered, for about a half hour. Add a spoonful of sliced black olives and stir in just to heat through. Shred the fresh basil leaves and sprinkle on top. Cook a pot of whole wheat spaghetti and serve the chicken and vegetables on top. Serves 4-6.

This is not Shepherd’s Pie, although there are some similarities. It’s certainly a nice, easy meal in one dish and can be doubled for more people, or so that you will have leftovers for lunches. 1/2 lb. (227 g) extra lean ground beef 2 tbsp. (30 ml) oat bran 1 egg 1 slice whole wheat bread 2 green onions 1 c. (250 ml) spinach 2 mushrooms 1 garlic clove 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) hot sauce 2 russet potatoes 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese 1 garlic clove

salt and pepper, to taste Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Put ground beef in a medium bowl and add oat bran and beaten egg. Cube bread and add; chop green onions, spinach, mushrooms, minced garlic and hot sauce and add. Mix well and press into a loaf pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Meanwhile, boil and mash two russet potatoes. Grate cheddar into them and add a minced garlic clove and season to taste. Mix well and spread on top of the meatloaf, then grate a sprinkle more cheddar over that. Reduce oven temperature to 300 F and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes more. Serves 2.
