Dissenters pan plan for waterfront development Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

City ambitions to turn a portion of the Kelowna waterfront into a linear park, alongside a four-storey commercial and residential development, have come against significant opposition. At an Advisory Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday, all but two committee members gave plans for waterfront properties on Abbott Street a thumbs down, seemingly swayed by a significant showing of neighbourhood dissenters who filled council chambers. “It’s a coup for the city to have acquired all this land for $2.2 million, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to take a look at this as park land,” said area resident Ian Sisett, during the public input portion of the meeting on the seven properties the city has accrued since 1989. “The (artistic renderings) show us a nice park, trees and walkways, but where is the six-storey Berlin Wall?” In what was one of the more dramatic statements

of the three-hour meeting, Sisett went on to explain zoning assigned to the portion of land that could be up for development would allow for an unattractive barrier between the pre-existing community and the waterfront. “Has anyone addressed the visual corridors?” he asked. “Why don’t we use it as a park?

Butting out in public places takes effect Feb. 1 Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Smokers beware—lighting up in most of Kelowna’s public spaces will be verboten in a little more than a week.

The no-smoking policy that covers city parks, beaches and recreation spaces will come into effect Feb. 1, putting this city in line with policies in the Regional District of Central Okanagan, West Kelowna and numerous other cit-

ies across B.C. By the estimates of Ian Wilson, the city’s parks manager, it should be a welcomed change in tack for the majority. “In a 2008 Canadian Cancer Society survey, 75 per cent of

the respondents from Kelowna supported regulations to prohibit smoking at beaches, parks and playgrounds,” he said. See Public A4

Gellatly Bay corridor completion desires set aside Mike Simmons STAFF REPORTER

While some work will be done this year, the District of West Kelowna opted against completing the entire recreational corridor at Gellatly Bay in 2011. The current budget allocation is for the corridor to be extended more than halfway to Boucherie Road. Coun. David Knowles said he would really like to see the project completed. He pointed out the existing section

of the multi-use waterfront corridor along Gellatly Road is popular, and people are looking for the rest of the project to be done. “It has become quite a destination.” Knowles noted completion of the corridor would come out of future expenses and would obviously be substantial, but he recommended council bite the bullet and produce the entire piece. Coun. Gord Milsom pointed out 75 per cent of this year’s capital budget is mainly focused on roads

and walkway improvements. He added the allocations are made in line with feedback from citizens and in line with the district’s strategic plan. Coun. Duane Ophus said the district has to be careful and cautious, and realistic about what they can actually afford. He noted to complete the corridor up to a point in 2011 will be a positive thing, and that council should stick with staff recommendations. Coun. Rosalind Neis said she believes whoever is at the head of the provincial government a year

from now, there will be a significant amount of funding available for such projects. Neis added West Kelowna residents are already facing increased taxes from other agencies, including the school district and Interior Health. Mayor Doug Findlater said the district does have a problem in the area with pedestrians and bicycles in an unsafe spot. He recommended a section of the corridor be completed. “The rest I’m advocating that we leave. I think we can probably access

other infrastructure funds.” Coun. Bryden Winsby said he agrees with the spirit behind completing the project, but at the same time the district has to proceed cautiously. He noted that if the Gellatly corridor is to be a showpiece for the district, it might not be good to attract more people to the destination at the moment due to existing congestion and lack of parking. “The more people we attract, the more difficulty we may encounter.” msimmons@kelownacapnews.com

Neighbourhood residents call for public park on lakeshore lots Dissenters from A1 than a Berlin Wall?” Since those parks are virtually empty during the bulk of the year, Derek Edstrom explained plans for the 2.5 acres of waterfront land are designed to draw the energy of the South Pandosy business area year-round with commercial, as well as natural, amenities. Possibly, plans for an iconic piece of public art will come to fruition. “This way people can enjoy the Pandosy area, and be enticed to come down Cedar Avenue,” he said, explaining that a restaurant and cafe figure into the plan. “We hear over and over again, there are not

enough places on the waterfront for people to come…and essentially have a coffee on the lake. This would provide that space.” Around 55 per cent of the site would remain parkland if the plan came to fruition, and that ration would be met with a 450-foot-long lakeside promenade as well as a traditional park. The remaining property, which butts against Abbott Street, would be put up for sale. Interested developers would be invited to submit proposals for residential housing and some limited commercial space that would likely include a restaurant. Proceeds from that would be rolled into

other endeavours. While most of the APC members voted the proposal down, Mark Thomson said he liked what was presented. “If I owned land in the yellow area (which sits behind city owned lots) I would be in favour of the property in red turning to park,” he said. In coming weeks city council will have a chance to weigh in on the plan that’s been spelled out in Kelowna’s Official Community Plan since 2004, not to mention the Pandosy Sector Plan and the Cedar Avenue Plan. All three were crafted with the help of community input and approved by council. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

At that time he thought heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to hit up the Canadian Cancer Society for the cash, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come up short due their own budgetary restraints.

T-BONEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S FRESH

Boosting wine tourism Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Old and new, big and small, a group of Central Okanagan wineries are banding together to brand this region to wine-loving visitors and locals alike. The initiative is being driven by Tourism Kelowna, with 15 area wineries on-board so far to develop a strategy for cost-effectively marketing wine routes or trails for consumers. Tourism Kelowna CEO Nancy Cameron said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re much more powerful as a group; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get much more exposure this year, with numerous wine routes or trails.â&#x20AC;? She figures there are now 24 wineries in the Central Okanagan, and envisions numerous wine routes or trails linking several wineries to people to visit in a single trip.

This â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-positioningâ&#x20AC;? of Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand will include the culinary opportunities available in the area as well as other attractions, for a mix of both urban and those with a more-rural feel, she explained. Ultimately, the intent would be to increase visits to the wineries and sales; but as well the expectation is that it would also increase overnight visits and traffic at other attractions in Kelowna. Although there are only 15 wineries involved now, Cameron said she expects others to join in the collective once the strategy is complete in the coming weeks. Participating wineries include: Arrowleaf Cellars, Camelot Vineyards Estate Winery, CedarCreek Estate Winery, ExNihilo, Gray Monk Estate Winery, House of Rose, Little Straw Vineyards,

Mission Hill Family Estate, Okanagan Villa Estate Winery, Quailsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Gate Estate Winery, SpierHead Winery, St. Hubertus and Oak Bay Winery, Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Tantalus Vineyards and Vineyards Estate Wines at Calona Vineyards. Tourism Kelowna produced a brochure last year called Studio and Farm Tours, which focussed on 37 artisans, farms and wineries in this region, from Arloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Honey Farm, Arrowleaf Cellars and the Orchard Industry and Wine Museums, to Gatzkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farm Market and Paynterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fruit Market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of broadening the experience for visitors,â&#x20AC;? said Cameron.

He loved the Irish— including his wife—could hold his Guinness, perform admirably as a kids’ soccer coach and roar with unparalleled enthusiasm for a good live band. Yet if there’s one thing Doug Biden, the man behind the colourful print collection featured in the Kelowna Art Gallery this month, really knew how to do, it was inspire this kind of passion in others. “He was one of those kinds of profs who students wanted to come and give mixed tapes to, back when they gave mixed tapes,” said Robert Belton, a UBC Okanagan fine arts professor. In his near decadelong career at what was then Okanagan University College, Biden was known more for his zeal for life, his spontaneous floor hockey games in the school corridor after hours, than the sum of his artistic career. “I just think that people thought he was a lovable kind of character—but one who had chops,” said Belton. Even his good friends were, therefore, shocked when the exhibit, curated by his friend Darrin Martens of the Burnaby Art Gallery, revealed the extent of his work. “They were astounded at just how much he produced. You go into that show and you realize that this guy had such a wide range of skills and he just produced this…sensuous, tasty, experience,” Belton said. Bright, political and at times a bit shocking, UBCO sculpture professor Byron Johnston describes the show—Doug Biden: Visceral Allegories —as “concerned about the world and the healthiness of it.” There are images of Bobby Kennedy, of foot-

ball players with millions, soldiers heading to war, and men hanged from the gallows. For the many Okanaganites whom Biden touched as a teacher, colleague and friend, however, one stunning theme grips with nearly the same voracity as the images he built. The over-arching obsession of Biden’s work has to do with the body, its internal organs and the systems which make us all tick. As the artist passed away in 2007 after a heroic, though incredibly cruel battle with pancreatic cancer, it is tempting to chalk this fixation up to an internal struggle with the disease. His wife, Ingrid Abbott, said Biden did not believe this was ever the case. Years before he got sick, he watched his mother wage a long battle with cancer; his father had also died of an illness.

‘‘

I JUST THINK THAT PEOPLE THOUGHT HE WAS A LOVABLE KIND OF CHARACTER— BUT ONE WHO HAD CHOPS. Robert Belton, UBCO professor

The obsession with the body stems from those life stories, she said, noting she once asked him if he felt there was a premonition in his work. “He emphatically said he had no idea (he was sick),” said Abbott, admitting it did nevertheless foreshadow the last two years of their life together. Diagnosed on Easter weekend 2005, while his family was away visiting the coast, Biden was initially given only palliative options by Kelowna’s medical community.

He opted to take his chances with the pancreatic clinic in Vancouver. “We were not just going to take three to six months,” she said. Biden was 48-yearsold when he fell ill, he had just run the Campus-toCampus Half Marathon, as a member of a fine arts relay team, and had two young children, Hilary and Nicholas Biden, who attended Okanagan Mission Secondary. The treatment was difficult, experimental and required chemotherapy, radiation and major surgery; but when it was over, incredibly, he was deemed cancer free. “I said to Doug, ‘Well, you’ve got your life back, what do you want to do? Do you want to go live in an Ashram in India? Do you want to travel the world?’ And he said, ‘I want my life in Kelowna back,’” said Abbott. “He didn’t need an epiphany to know he was

really happy.” Biden worked hard for his teaching post at OUC. For six years he worked in Kelowna while his family lived on the Sunshine Coast, in an oceanside home he commuted back to as often as he could. He had taught at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Capilano College, but when the printmaking position became available in the Okanagan, the family made huge sacrifices to ensure he could work. “He lived the bohemian lifestyle while he was teaching, working until four o’clock in the morning,” said Abbott. “Then he could spend time with the family when he was home,” The results are selfevident.

▼ HUNTING SEASON

Moose limits won’t be extended Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Although an aerial survey for moose in two areas near Kelowna last month indicated there are more animals than estimated by the government in setting hunting seasons, there are no plans to lengthen the regular open hunting season. Wildlife biologist Brian Harris with the natural resource operations ministry, said based on the unofficial data from those flights, there still are fewer than the ideal number of bulls to cows in each of the areas surveyed. He admitted there were good numbers— more than he’d earlier estimated—of moose in Wildlife Management Region 8-11 on the Westside, but still fewer than

30 bulls to 100 cows. There were also better numbers than he’d expected in the Aberdeen Plateau area on the other side of the lake, but fewer than the ideal ratio. Moose hunting seasons were reduced and opened later last year to avoid hunting during the rut when bulls are vulnerable, because of concerns about populations. The same opening dates will apply to the regular season for next year, said Harris. However, he said there may be increased opportunities for Limited Entry Hunting next year, opportunities for which hunters must enter a draw process to be awarded special opportunities outside the regular season. The draft report from Kim Poole, a consultant

with Aurora Wildlife Research, indicated there is a ratio of 25 bulls to 100 cows in the one management unit on the Westside and 28 bulls to 100 cows in the Aberdeen Plateau area. However, Harris said he is concerned that increased logging due to the infestation of mountain pine beetle is opening up both forest cover and access roads in forests in the Okanagan, leaving moose vulnerable to hunting pressure. Until there is more green-up, he said they will continue to be vulnerable. As well, he said there are concerns that moose in the Okanagan tend to be genetically-related to the smaller Shiras moose from south of the border, which also have smaller and slower-growing ant-

lers. Because of this he believes that even some three-year-old moose can still be spike fork moose, which normally are yearlings. The hunting season is open only to spike fork moose in this area, with the idea that they are yearlings. The moose survey was conducted largely at the expense of local fish and game clubs, the Okanagan Region Wildlife Heritage Fund Society and the Okanagan Region B.C. Wildlife Federation, because budget cuts have prevented the natural resource operations ministry from paying for such monitoring in recent years. The draft report is currently being reviewed.

from 9/11, to women’s rights, the impact of media on social thinking, religion and the holocaust. There is even a commentary on pornography dubbed Eve Does Adam, Rick and Terry: The Vagaries of Sex and Love, which features his children looking at a fuzzy,

yet obviously crude pornographic image. The bulk of the show was created on the KLO campus of OUC in its printmaking studio. If you ask one of his students what he was like, they’ll tell you simply: he was fun. “He was really interested in what he was doing,” said Arlin French, a tattoo artist who now lives

in Vancouver. “He was really into printmaking and really into making art and had a really fun attitude.” A very spiritual person, Johnston remembers his last words to him were that he would be sending him messages. Johnston curated a Biden show for the Penticton gallery last year and the main boardroom of

the university’s provost is decorated exclusively with Biden prints. It has taken three years for this show to wind its way to Kelowna and Biden himself helped select some of the work before his death. “It is so incredibly special that it is in Kelowna and that it is in a big gallery,” Abbott said.

Merit pay idea lacks substance

L

iberal leadership candidate Kevin Falcon is quick to dismiss critics of his teachers’ merit-pay proposal as unclear on his concept. Most distinctly, he suggests, his plan is not true “merit pay,” basing an individual’s salary on performance. Rather, it would provide cash bonuses to teachers deemed exceptional. While this distinction seems a tenuous sticking point, Falcon is learned enough to realize the onus is on him to explain how his suggestion would work

in practice. The question is clear. How does one determine which teachers are more deserving of our tax dollars? One common answer is measuring students’ academic improvement. But while rising grade-point averages in one term would suggest greater learning, what about subsequent terms—after the cream has already risen? Pity the pocketbook of the teacher who starts the year off with a bunch of Grade A all-

stars, with nowhere to go but stay the course or (gulp) drop. How about student and parent feedback? Sure we’d see a lot of kowtowing by some. But would this really result in better classrooms? Clocking teachers’ extracurricular hours? Not necessarily an accurate measurement of quality teaching, and could be akin to measuring fine dining by the pound. In defending his plan, Falcon talks about his experiences as a student, and being encour-

aged by a teacher who got him into history and, subsequently, politics. How would this have been measurable, had there been a like-minded premier in Falcon’s day? Is such excellence even quantifiable on paper? Until a well-thought-out argument is put forth, teachers’ remuneration should continue to be negotiated in more traditional ways, with exceptional teachers compensated through the knowledge of a job well done and the occasional pat on the back.

Boomers: Only a park in my backyard—nothing else

A

ny time a baby boomer refers to the “greater good,” my eyebrow involuntarily rises. Boomers, as we’re all aware, belong to the demographic bulge that got fat on the land, sucked resources dry and consistently showed little regard for damage they wrought, unless it directly impacted their profits. When things got dicey, they’d get political, argue for positive change from their 7,000 square foot home for two, and expect to be applauded. War-babies’ indiscretions ensured that everyone who followed—aka Generation Screwed—grew up on a healthy serving of fear of everything from holes in the ozone layer to a dotage marked by non-existent pensions.

Dwelling on this particular subject is enough to drive a person barmy, should they give it much heed, so it’s best ignored. Unfortunately, occasions to indulge in boomer-related frustration do come to the fore, as was the case Tuesday. A Kelowna Advisory Planning Commission meeting scheduled to hash out community opinion on a mixed use development proposed for the Cedar Avenue and Abbott Street area filled the seats with as lobbyists for more greenspace. “What about our children’s chil-

dren?” said one con-

KATHARTIC cerned citizen, who

lived adjacent to a chunk of land the city wants to turn into a linear park, augmented by a four-storey building. “Families should Kathy Michaels have the right to play in the park. We shouldn’t give up our parkland,” pleaded another, who wasn’t interested in the idea that a boardwalk augmented with coffee shops and restaurants would keep people flowing. They were convincing. Arguments to keep park space do resonate, which was evident from all the clapping and cheering that erupted when its protec-

tors took the microphone. Who wants to see paradise turned into a parking lot? Joni Mitchell explicitly laid out why it was wrong in her very hummable manner, and some time after the concrete thoroughfare dividing Kelowna was built, everyone else got on board. Problem is, it doesn’t sound quite right when it’s coming from nearby homeowners and developers faced with a choice between a four-storey building and unfettered view of the lake. It actually comes off as downright shifty. What would have been better, in my humble opinion, is some honesty. How about a: “Meh, who cares about everyone else, I want my own

park!” Or a little: “How will this impact my real estate value?” Best yet: “Where will Fido run, once the park is finished and bylaw officers start poking around?” Perhaps I’m too jaded. Maybe these property owners do care about the greater good, and when their time comes they’ll prove it by what they do with their waterfront and water-adjacent homes. Perhaps the whole block will be willed to the city with the proviso that it can only be used for greenspace. That will give everyone’s eyebrows a nice break as they finally put their money where their mouth is. Kathy Michaels is a staff reporter for the Kelowna Capital News.

LETTERS

Legitimate use of firearms on golf course To the editor: On Friday, Jan. 7, at approximately 9:35 a.m., I drove along McCulloch Road overlooking the golf courses. I noted many flocks of geese on both The Harvest Golf Course and Orchard Greens Golf Course. Other flocks were landing on both courses. The weather conditions were such that the feeding geese would be doing maximum damage to the turf—the green part of the grass was thawing with the root of the grass still frozen into the soil. I had a 10 a.m. meeting and was unable to scare the geese off the course. I would have used the same method to scare away the geese as Buddy (Tavares) has used. This is commonplace procedure for handling this type of nuisance. The golf course is in the Agriculture Land Reserve and no different than any other crop. We have to produce perfect grass to make good greens. Geese do enormous damage to greens and fairways as starlings do to cherries and grapes—a well known fact. The market for these products is very demanding and competitive. We use propane cannon, fire crackers and other noise makers to simulate gun shots and frighten the birds away to alleviate damage. There is a long tradition of farmers using shot guns to control varmints and wildlife that damage crops. This is not hunting, the objective is not to kill or injure the birds. This is common knowledge to any person resident of the Okanagan Valley and should be common knowledge to law enforcement officials or handymen mechanics working on a golf course. The problem is that geese are particularly quick to learn that the simulated gun shots pose no threat and become complacent if occasionally we don’t reinforce their fear with the real thing. This procedure applies to starlings with cherry and grape crops also. The discharge of shotgun shells is no more

a hazard than the Kelowna Trap Club shoots, which happen to be in the proximity of our orchards and vineyards. At times (if people are in the immediate area) I sometimes remove the pellets from shells or use phosphorus loaded (flare) shells. Orchard Greens Golf Course adjoins The Harvest Golf Course and in places, the boundary is unfenced. We have often traded favours back and forth as neighbours. Anyone whose livelihood (and is conscientious) depends on a golf course knows that geese on the greens pose a real threat and have to be controlled. Not only have I given Buddy permission to enter our course to control the goose problem, but thank and compensate him for assisting us. He could have just as well been on Orchard Greens as on The Harvest Golf course. The problem is too many geese doing too much damage and no city control. This sad injustice (Tavares’ arrest and brutalization during the arrest) started with the questionable motives of a handy man mechanic who, with no authority or just cause, exaggerated a routine event (scaring geese from Orchard Greens and Harvest golf courses) by an employee of 18 years as greenskeeper, who fired two shot shells into the ground. There was no effort to confirm the credibility or circumstances related to the supposed firearms infraction by the person receiving the complaint. No investigation or elaboration of the complaint was carried out by Constable Mantler, who had made no effort to verify the facts or the nature of the complaint and greeted Buddy with unprovoked aggression. Mantler was accompanied by a female officer who made no effort to stop or in any way protect Buddy from the assault taking place in her presence. How did she know that the initial kick was all that Mantler had in mind. Who could tell whether his distraught mind was going to continue the assault or, God forbid, shoot Buddy. No effort was made

to disarm Mantler. The gravest concern of all, is the indifference of the RCMP to the situation and the fear that any citizen of Kelowna can become a target of police brutality and unaccountability. What further clouds this situation is the only person who acted sanely, calm and with diligence in his job was the victim, Buddy. The assault was obvious. How is it that Buddy was jailed and out on bail with many bail conditions while Mantler hasn’t even been charged, never mind had to serve jail time. There have been no consequences for Mantler. He still receives his regular wage paid by the taxpayers, including Buddy. Something is wrong with this rationale? It was evident to anyone witnessing the video that Mantler had “lost it” and the assisting officer was complacent and accepting this as “business as usual” procedure. What upbringing by parents or community could possibly produce an individual so wicked and void of remorse or compassion? One wonders about an organization of superiors of Mantlers’ who appear to reflect or condone his attitude. Off duty with pay? Where is the mayor on this? Where are the MLA comments or support? I would suggest that the RCMP do not need a probe in this matter, they need a prod. It is time that we went back to our own accountable police force as the City of Kelowna or at least a provincial force accountable to the people. This situation opens the doors to many scary thoughts. One such thought is do we trust the officers to be judge, jury and executioner with the enforcement of the latest alcohol-related laws where the individual has no recourse and the officers have no accountability? Respectfully and with sincere thought, Chris Turton, owner Orchard Greens Golf Course

Wise up to paying more through gas marketers To the editor: This letter is to warn and help people that have had experience with the gas marketers who come to your door to sell natural gas to you. I was approached a few years ago and after being told that not only would my gas price be protected, it would cost me less, and that the government was on board with this new method and that Terasen would still send me my bills, so it seemed they were cool with it too. I was told I needed to sign up then to guarantee my price. When I asked about signing up ie: like a contract, I was told it was not like that, so in trying to save myself some money I signed up. The offer looked too good to be true and it

was. It was not until I was doing my yearly bill summary that I noticed how much more I had paid for my gas than previous years. I asked a neighbour what their bills were like (same size home, etc.) and I was paying way more! The sales person at the door was very misleading and created a lot of confusion around who they worked for and had put pressure on me, but I thought no problem, I’ll just call and cancel. Not! I was bullied and told in no way, without a huge financial penalty could I get out— for five years. I had never seen or been told this prior, and I had asked. After talking to many friends it turned out

I was not alone. So I appealed to the marketer again but was told I had no way out. I even called Terasen asking for their help. Terasen was very understanding but could not do anything for me as they are not involved with these marketers. Well, I found a way out and you can too if you have been swindled by them. You can tell if you are paying through a marketer by looking at your gas bill under the cost of gas section, it will list their name right there. Please ask your friends and relatives to check their own bills, and if you or someone you know is a victim of a gas marketer you can find instructions on how to get rid of them at this website: www.gaswise.info.

Providing sustenance, comfort Express yourself To the editor: Today I thought for the millionth time how blessed our community is to have Meals on Wheels and its wonderful volunteers. I am continually awed and inspired by their dependability and commitment. Our volunteers have delivered close to 500,000 meals to shut ins since February, 1969. That is 42

years of delivery, six days a week, 52 weeks a year in Kelowna, Rutland and West Kelowna. They have never missed a delivery due to inclement weather or challenging personal situations. Because of them and their generosity, we can ensure that an affordable meal of a warm and flavourful bowl of soup, a hot nourishing entree and

a tasty dessert reach those who are home-bound or disabled in some way. This service helps seniors retain their independence and gives families and friends peace of mind knowing that we are not just delivering meals but keeping watch over their loved ones. Marion Bremner, Kelowna

Iconic salmon should be named B.C. symbol

I

can still remember the first fish I caught from salt water, and the frightening bug eyes with which it glared at me when I hauled it near the boat. It didn’t look anything like the trout and kokanee I was accustomed to catching in fresh water. My first instinct was to release it to head back down to the deeps, but when I realized that underneath the fierce exterior it was actually a familiar favourite from my dinner table, and delicious eating, I kept it. My recollection of that catch was more horrifying and eye-opening than it was exciting, but the first salmon I caught was an interval in time I’ll never forget. It was quite a fight to land him, compared to the much smaller fish I was used to, and he was a beautiful sight when I finally got him near the boat, with his streamlined

So, it didn’t surprise me to read this week that the Pacific salmon is B.C.’s most iconic fish in the eyes of 95 per cent of people surveyed in this province. There’s also something almost mythical about the life cycle of the salmon—not just the wild, ocean-run species— but also our land-locked sockeye, the kokanee, which is native to the waters of our local lakes in the Okanagan. It’s like magic that they somehow manage to find and often fight their way back upstream

to the watery gravel bed of their own birth, to lay their eggs before dying and completing their cycle of life. Sometimes it’s a journey of thousands of miles, past almost insurmountable obstacles and past predators of all sorts along the way. It’s not unlike the epic journey of Frodo in Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, to use a more-modern simile. And, that fight to achieve a goal in life, even if it means death, is a great life lesson for youngsters too. In the process they learn about the importance of protecting habitat so such icons can continue to achieve their goals before dying. The Pacific Salmon Foundation and Fraser Basin Council invite public comment on the proposal to designate wild Pacific salmon (I think the fresh water kokanee should be included) a provincial symbol like the

tal of $300,000 available. The purpose of the grant program is to enhance water quality and conserve water quantity throughout the Okanagan Valley, noted Anna Warwick Sears, executive director for the OBWB. “This program exemplifies our reality of ‘One Valley, One Water,’” she explained. “Everyone who lives in the Okanagan, whether you live in Armstrong or in Osoyoos, is critically interconnected by one water—the Okanagan Basin. “What happens to the water in the north affects the water quality in the south. “We also live in a semiarid climate and have less freshwater available per person in the Okanagan, yet, homeowners use more than twice the Canadian average—this affects quantity.” This program funds projects that tackle these important issues, added Warwick Sears. Another important element of this program is its focus on collaboration. Several of these grants have resulted in partnerships that last well into the future. “We’ve seen networks of expertise built. We’ve seen practical approaches to water conservation and water quality improvement created that can be applied valley-wide. And, we’ve seen water conserved and quality improved,” she continued. For example, City of Penticton’s environmental audit pilot project this past year helped business owners reduce water and energy consumption—a project that could be implemented in other communities. Another project was Okanagan Xeriscape Association’s demonstration garden, providing Okanagan homeowners with examples of gardens that require less water and are more appropriate for the region’s dry climate. An example of water quality improvement that benefits the valley is a project by Greater Vernon Water and Regional District of North Okanagan which identified sources of bacterial contamination on Kalamalka Lake that will reduce future contamination. “Like past years, we’re looking for applications that think outside the box and clearly demonstrate benefits for the entire valley,” added Warwick Sears.

Kelowna alpine skier will be racing on familiar terrain Christine Ulmer CONTRIBUTOR

Four years after a downhill skiing accident took her away from the

sport she loves, 13-yearold Cassidy Tomlin will be one of seven young athletes to represent Kelowna in alpine skiing at the International Chil-

dren’s Winter Games next week. “I am really excited about skiing in the Games and meeting other athletes from all over the world,”

said Tomlin. She will compete in the Giant Slalom event— a timed downhill race that pushes skiers to their limit as they weave in and out of stationary gates. The course will be set up at Big White, a mountain Tomlin knows well, having skied there since she was seven years old. Big White is also the mountain where Tomlin suffered a full fracture of her leg—an injury that left her in a cast for 13 weeks and with more than a little anxiety about her future in skiing. “In 2007 I was coming down the Exhibition run, it was a foggy day with flat light and I crashed,” explained Tomlin. “My skis didn’t release and I knew that I’d hurt my leg pretty bad. I tried to keep skiing on it but I couldn’t.” It took a year before Tomlin was ready to snap into her bindings again. Her dad Ian remembers the day well. “We were up at Lake

really good techniques from the training and I’ve been able to add it on to the things I already know —things like keeping my edges up and my pole plant forward have really improved my skiing.” Tomlin has put her crash in the past but occasionally has moments of fear before a race. “If I am feeling a bit anxious I try not to think about it but try to stay positive and just tell myself ‘you can do it.’” When it comes to race day, she thinks Team Kelowna might have a slight advantage over some of the other skiers who come from cities such as Innsbruck, Montreux and Maroondah. “We have had the opportunity to train at Big White and we are so comfortable with the mountain and the conditions —we are used to dealing with fog and I think that will give us a bit of an edge.” Regardless of the outcome of the Giant Slalom competition, Tomlin is excited about her role in the Games.

Ransom calmer for worlds Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

CONTRIBUTED

WEST KELOWNA’S Julia Ransom will compete in the World Junior andYouth Biathlon Championships beginning next weekend in the Czech Republic.

Rockets head south for three The Kelowna Rockets will get a full dose of American opposition this weekend as they play three games in as many nights south of the border. The Rockets will be in Kent, Wash. Friday to battle the Seattle Thunderbirds, in Spokane Saturday to take on the Chiefs, before closing out the weekend Sunday in Kennewick against the Tri-City Americans. The Thunderbirds have struggled of late with just two wins in their last 10 starts, but Kelowna head coach Ryan Huska cautions not to be deceived by their record. “Seattle’s a very good

team and they have very good goaltending (Calvin Pickard),” said Huska. The Chiefs are the WHL’s hottest team with 10 wins in their last 11 games and share the Western Conference lead with Portland. Tri-City is just two points back and has won eight of the last 10. “Every one of the games this weekend is a tough one,” said Huska.

“That’s why it’s important for us not to look beyond Seattle, be ready to play the first game, then move on from there.” The Rockets (24-20-00) are second in the B.C. Division, just a point back of the first-place Vancouver Giants. Kelowna has two games in hand. The Rockets are looking to build on a 6-2 win Wednesday over the visiting Prince George Cougars. Cody Chikie scored twice and Spencer Main had a career-high four assists as the Rockets beat P.G. for the fifth time in six meetings this season. Still, Huska wasn’t entirely pleased with his

team’s effort. “It wasn’t a great game for us, I thought Prince George was the better team in the first period and it was a closer game that the score showed,” said Huska. “It’s all part of the learning process, there are still mistakes being made and the key is to try and limit those.” The Rockets’ next home action is Friday, Jan. 28 against the Cougars.

Expect a considerably more relaxed and poised Julia Ransom to be wearing her skis and rifle this year at the World Junior and Youth Biathlon Championships. The 17-year-old from West Kelowna will leave Sunday for Nove Mesto, Czech Republic and will compete as a member of Team Canada at the 2011 event. Ransom had her first taste of major international competition a year ago at the world youth championships in Torsby, Sweden where she placed 11th in individual, 15th in sprint, 23rd in pursuit and fourth with the Canadian team in the relay event. What caught Ransom most off guard in 2010 was the hype and importance placed on the sport of biathlon by the European fans and media. “I feel like I’m going to be a lot more calm this time, I have a better idea of what to expect,” said Ransom, a Grade 12 student at Mt. Boucherie Secondary. “It was more of a professional level event than anything I’d ever seen. People were so happy to see the athletes, you turned on the TV and you could see how huge sports like this and cross country are there. It just blew me away. This time I’ll know what to expect.” In the Czech Republic, Ransom will compete in the youth women’s category from Jan. 29 to Feb. 4 in the 6 km sprint, the 7.5 km pursuit, the 10 km individual and the 3 by 6 km relay. A year older and with an added season of training, experience and strength, Ransom believes a couple of top-10 finishes

is a realistic goal. The key for Ransom— like all biathletes—is the ability to successfully switch back and forth between the endurance and speed requirements of skiing and the steady-handed calmness of firing a rifle at a target. “I don’t think you find many sports anywhere that compare to this where you use the speed, power and endurance, then have to make the adjustment right away to being totally still and focused,” she said. “When you’re shooting, you just need to sort of put the blinders on, be steady and take your shots. It’s really the exciting part about the sport, the contrasts you see within it.” Provincial biathlon coach Rob Swan has been working with Ransom for the past several years and expects the energetic and dedicated 17-year-old will be well prepared for her second world championships. “Like anything it’s hard to predict what an athlete’s going to do against other athletes, they all have the same goals and they’ve all been working hard,” said Swan, who is a professional endurance coach. “Julia has been training hard, she’s been on a real good longbase program through the summer and it’s starting to pay off. She’s more mature, more experienced, and experience says a lot. There’s a long progression in this sport, but Julia knows what she wants, and she’s headed in the right direction.” While getting to compete at the worlds in the Czech Republic as a member of Team Canada is the biggest reward for all of Ransom’s hard work, there is an added

bonus. “I’m so excited about the chance to experience a different culture and to meet new people,” said Ransom, who will be joining the Canadian team in Prague this weekend. “My parents have taken me a lot of places in the past and I’ve learned just how important it is to travel, see other cultures and how others live. It’s definitely a nice side to what I do.” A busy season on the snow continues for Ransom next month when she heads to the Canada Winter Games in Halifax. Then later this winter, the West Kelowna athlete will compete at the Canadian cross country championships, before closing out the season at the national biathlon championships in late March in New Brunswick. Meanwhile, Ransom tuned up for worlds a pair of top finishes at the NorAm Cup recently in Canmore, an event open to both Canadian and American athletes. She was second in the youth women’s 6 km sprint and third in the 7.5 km pursuit.

BYRAM WINS

Telemark’s Eric Byram was a two-time winner at the NorAm/Calforex Cup earlier this month in Canmore. Byram skied and shot his way to first place in the junior men’s 3.75 km, then added a second gold in the junior 6.25 km pursuit. The Telemark team is on the road to Vanderhoof this weekend for the third and fourth B.C. Cup events of the season. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

KSS Jr Owls rally before the buzzer Vancouver College jumped out to a lead and had a chance to win the game at the buzzer, but a determined Kelowna Secondary School Junior Owls claimed their own tournament title last weekend with an exciting victory in the final game as the team won three straight games to claim the title.

In the final Vancouver College led 21-18 after the first quarter. The Owls raced back to take a 36-33 lead at the half. In the third quarter a determined defensive effort gave KSS a 48-38 lead after three quarters as the Owls held Vancouver without a field goal in the quarter. But Vancouver College raced back in the

fourth, capitalizing on some KSS turnovers and some missed free throws to cut the lead to one with just 12 seconds to play. The KSS defense came up with a big stop in the final seconds as they hung on for the win. First team tournament all-star Joel Burma led the way with 16 points in the championship game while

Liam McGoran chipped in with 12 and Darrion Bunce played tremendous defence and was strong on the boards. Earlier, KSS had defeated MEI 55-32 in the semi-finals, while Vancouver had beaten Pen-Hi 66-47 in the other semifinal. Pen-Hi beat MEI 5652 in the bronze med-

al game while Mount Boucherie beat LV Rogers 47-45 to take 4th place in the tournament. KSS beat Fulton 7815 in their first game with Burma scoring 16 and Liam Birker chipping in with 12. The Jr. Owls wrapped up league play Tuesday and have a break before zone playoffs begin.

Owls ranked 2nd at Van College tourney The No. 2 B.C. ranked Kelowna Owls are at Vancouver College this weekend for the Emerald senior boys basketball tournament. KSS will play its first game against No. 6 Pitt Meadows. The Owls are fresh off a pair of Okanagan league wins this week to push their regular season mark to 5-0. After a disappointing loss to Kent-Meridian last weekend at the King Holiday Hoopfest in Seattle, the Owls rebounded on Monday night with a 11061 win over Mt. Boucherie. A balanced Owls attack was led by Grade 11 guard Mitch Goodwin with 18 points, while Tanner Leimert and DeBoe Truss had 14 each, and Braxston Bunce added 13

points and 12 rebounds. For the Bears, Luke Oloffs led the way with 15 points followed by Adam Tilley with 13. The following night the Owls travelled to Salmon Arm where they routed the Golds 105-50. Kelowna shot 45.6 per cent (36-79) for the game as Grade 11 Dejo Oyelese topped the scoresheet with 22 points, followed by Goodwin with 17. Senior Ross Ciancio had a season high 13 along with Leimert. Neven Knezevic was the top rebounder with 11. The victory was not without its costs as Owls’ leading scorer DeBoe Truss went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter and did not return for the remainder of the game. His status remains day to day.

Bronze for Mustangs The bar has been raised to new heights for the Immaculata boys basketball program. For the first time ever, the Mustangs have come home with a medal from the B.C. Catholic Schools championship. Immaculata sewed up third place at the provincial tournament on Saturday at Holy Cross with a 63-55 victory over Notre Dame. t Steve Forsythe scored 26 in the bronze medal game for the Mustangs, while John Mlkotic addred 13. “A very nice win and a very nice finish in a tough ttournament,” said coach Dino Gini, whose Mustangs are ranked No. 1 at the A level in B.C. Immaculata opened the tourney with a 61r57 overtime win over St. Pat’s, last year’s single-A tchamps. Dario Gini scored a key hoop to tie the game up, while Forsythe had t17 points and Mlikotic scored 16 In the semifinal, the Mustangs suffered their only loss of the weekend, 61-45 to the host Holy Cross Crusaders. Dario Gini went down with an injury in the second quarter and missed the remainder of the tournament. Brandon Jacobs had 12 points for the Mustangs who struggled to get on track against H.C. “A tough loss, a game where the Mustangs just couldn’t get going,” coach Gini added. Steve Forsythe was named to the tournament’s

first all-star team, while John Mlikotic and Alex Hart made the second team.

MUSTANGS GIRLS

The Immaculata girls squad posted a 1-2 record at the B.C. Catholic Schools championship at Holy Cross. In their first game, the Mustangs edged Notre

The Kings scored twice in the final frame—both the result of unlucky bounces for Westside—to steal the two points. “I thought we played pretty well,” said War-

riors coach Darren Yopyk. “I’m happy with the guys and obviously they’re disappointed in losing. When you play that hard and don’t get rewarded it’s frustrating.”

Comedian packing the house Kristin Froneman VERNON MORNING STAR

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They call him the Tim Nutt of Canada.â&#x20AC;? In one of his favourite introductions, made by fellow comedian Lorne Elliott, Timothy Nutt has come a long way from his first foray into comedy, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharing some words of wisdom now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turned a certain corner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I turned 40 last year and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lucky, because of my occupation, to share what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so far,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like when a guy over 35 is riding a bike in jeans, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably been convicted of drunk driving.â&#x20AC;? Known for that wonderfully observant humour, Nutt is a comic who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be judged by his cover. Described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;rough around the edges,â&#x20AC;? matched with long hair and a beard, Nutt is said to look like a biker who talks like a professor. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finding an audience in his new home, where bikers and college professors often share a brew in the local pub. Nutt relocated from Toronto with his family, which includes two children, to Kelowna in the summer of 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed a change

of pace. My wife is from Toronto and she lived and worked 50 miles from where she was born. She turned to me and asked if I ever thought about living in the Okanagan. I said as long as you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw me into the briar patchâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? These days, you can find the comic, who was named one of the Best of the Fest at 2006â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Just for Laughs in Montreal, hosting the Chopping Block open mic Sunday nights at the Packing House Pub in Rutland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My main thing has been to spotlight up-andcoming comedians as there is not a regular comedy club in the Okanagan. We have a lot of burgeoning amateurs here and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been surprised at how many new people have come to the shows. I plan to bring along some of the Kelowna guys with me, and give them an opportunity and a little experience.â&#x20AC;? Nutt can relate to getting up on that stage the first time. Goaded by a friend to try his hand at standup, the Coquitlam native, a former football player who once studied acting, shared a few jokes in 1993 at an amateur night at a Vancouver comedy club.

His actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training helped him get over any nerves he may have been feeling at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friend kept saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you need to do thisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

WEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN. WE WORK 10 HOURS A WEEK AND WE MAKE WAY TOO MUCH MONEY FOR WHAT WE DO. WEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE LIKE POLITICIANS IN THAT WAY. Tim Nutt

Nutt recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go well, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go bad either.â&#x20AC;? A seed was planted, and Nutt started working through the ranks, playing clubs on the national comedy circuit. His first big break as a comedian came when he did his first Madly Off in All Directions. Introduced by Elliott, the former CBC radio showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s host, Nutt performed on Madly Off on a number of occasions, and he has since appeared on just about every major comedy festival stage in

BEING A COMEDIAN lets Tim Nutt share his life lessons. this country. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Just for Laughs four times, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and he previously came through the Okanagan while on the Just for Laughs tour across Canada before he

moved to the valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greg Proops (of Whose Line is it Anyway? fame) was the emcee of the tour. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the voice of Bob the Builder, which was great as I had him call my kids as the voice of Bob the

CONTRIBUTED

Builder, which put me in their good books.â&#x20AC;? Nutt has also been on CBC Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Debaters, where comedians face off against each other in front of a live audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did one about the merits of being a stay-at-

home dad,â&#x20AC;? said Nutt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a stay-at-home dad when my first daughter was born. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My argument was that it is a good thing as when it comes time for my children to put me in a home, at least they will pick a nice one.â&#x20AC;? Nutt adds heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careful not to share too much information about his family in his act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talk about parenting, but I try to keep my kids out of it in case they decide to YouTube it then embroil me in a lawsuit,â&#x20AC;? he laughed, adding his wife is also off limits for the same reason. However, everything else is open season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really miserable people,â&#x20AC;? said Nutt, referring to comics in general. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like little children. We work 10 hours a week and we make way too much money for what we do. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like politicians in that way.â&#x20AC;? Tim Nutt hosts the Chopping Block open mic comedy show every Sunday at the Packing House Pub in Rutland. Shows start at 8 p.m. or after the hockey game. Kristin Froneman is a staff reporter with the Vernon Morning Star.

▼ MOVIE PREVIEWS

A very good year is shaping up for Portman L

ast weekend was a great one for movies. Not only did The Green Hornet and The Dilemma open strong for January releases, True Grit lived up to its name showing that it had staying power and the Golden Globe Awards were handed out on Sunday.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Back in October, I wrote about my excitement for The Social Network because it was written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. Imagine my excitement as both Sorkin and Fincher won Golden Globes for it on Sunday night as well as it winning Best Dramatic Picture. Watch for it to be a frontrunner at the Academy Awards, nominations for which are announced Jan. 25 with the Oscars being handed out on Feb. 27. This is going to be an incredible year for Natalie Portman. Not only is she expecting her first child, she has she just won the Best Actress Golden Globe award for her performance in Black Swan, which virtually guarantees her an Oscar nomin-

ation. But she stars in no less than three movies this year: the comic book adaptation, Thor; the medieval stoner comedy Your Highness; and in this week’s only new wide release, No Strings Attached. She has worked with some of the greatest directors of all time including Luc Besson (The Professional), Michael Mann (Heat), Woody Allen (Everyone Says I Love You), Tim Burton (Mars Attacks!), George Lucas (The Star Wars prequels), Anthony Minghella (Cold Mountain), Mike Nichols (Closer) and in No Strings Attached, she gets to work with the great comedy director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Stripes and Dave). Reitman directs her and Ashton Kutcher in a romantic comedy about two life-long friends who decide to have a strictly sexual relationship with no emotional attachments. While the outcome may seem predictable, the success of the movie will depend on the chemistry between the leads and how lively the script is. The addition of Kevin Kline, Cary Elwes and Tim Matheson to the cast definitely helps. Although Nicole Kidman did not win a Golden Globe for her performance in Rabbit Hole, she

was nominated and expect her to be nominated for an Oscar as well. Also starring Aaron Eckhart, it is the story of a happily married couple whose lives are change after a tragic accident. They undertake an intensely emotional, redemptive journey to regain their happiness. Critics have heaped praise on Rabbit Hole, giving the script notices for mixing just the right

▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

‘Cultural safety’ works against multicultural society aims

S ty.”

ome time ago, I came across the term “cultural safe-

This term was developed in New Zealand in the early 1980s in response to Maori discontent with the nursing system. In reference to nursing care, the term requires nurses to be respectful of nationality, culture, age, sex, political and religious beliefs. This is in direct contrast with nursing care that requires nurses to deliver services to patients regardless of any of these. Cultural safety allows a nurse to establish a more trusting relationship with the patient. In turn, this will empower the patient to see themselves within the system of care instead of on the outside and thereby leading to more open

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens communication. By recognizing that indigenous people bring with them unique values, beliefs, and customs health professionals are in a position to provide better care. In education the same can be said for colleges and universities. Most Canadian postsecondary institutions were built upon an academic culture that was well established hundreds of years ago in Great Britain. Through time and colonization many countries adopted the same western

attitudes and models of education. Forcing aboriginal children to attend residential schools in the past century is a perfect example of imposing an educational system that didn’t take into account the values, beliefs, language and customs of an ethnic group. This negative history of education policies along with a multitude of other factors impacts on Canadian aboriginal postsecondary participation rates. In 2006, 35 per cent of the aboriginal population aged 25 to 64 had a postsecondary credential in comparison to 51 per cent of the non-aboriginal population. Aboriginal students also have higher high school dropout rates and lower literacy rates have been and continue to be

a problem for aboriginal communities that are located in isolated communities. To provide a culturally safe environment for aboriginal students many colleges and universities have provided space and funding for on-campus aboriginal student centres. At Okanagan College each of our campuses has an aboriginal centre where aboriginal mentors work with aboriginal students to help them find educational success. Most post-secondary institutions could improve the learning experience for aboriginal students by providing aboriginal content within a number of courses, which are predominately western focused. These courses would require a shift in curriculum where the focus may include theory and knowl-

edge from an aboriginal perspective. Finally, professors and instructors need to realize that not all of their students come from the same western culture. Like nurses, they too need to be aware of the different

tion or professional who works within a multicultural society. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College.

Airport traffic keeps escalating Passenger numbers at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) soared ahead in 2010 with 1,391,725, passengers—a 1.76 per cent increase over 2009 and 0.13 per cent ahead of the recordsetting number in 2008. “It was our goal in 2010 to reach the passenger levels of 2008,” said airport director Sam Samaddar. “I am very pleased to announce we achieved this, and in fact YLW had three all-time record-breaking months.” July and December saw new monthly records, with 122,965 and 126,513 passengers respectively. August became the busiest month in YLW’s history with 131,914 passengers—an increase of more than two per cent above the previous record month of March 2008. At a time when many airports saw a decline in air service, YLW was able to maintain its current service levels including nonstop service by WestJet and Air Canada to Canada’s largest airport Toronto Pearson International. It also increased additional same-plane service to more locations in Canada including Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Regina. Mexico and Las Vegas scheduled service was increased to six months

from four for the 2010-11 winter season. The continuing growth in passengers and flights at YLW is driving the long-term airport development approved by Kelowna City Council in 2009— the Drive to 1.6 Million Development Program. The first phase of this development plan will launch in 2011 with the expansion of the international customs hall and improvements to the U.S. flight boarding processes. YLW participates in an ongoing customer sat-

isfaction survey which benchmarks Kelowna International Airport against other airports. In 2010, YLW expanded its benchmark by participating in a biannual survey conducted by Airports Council International which compares YLW to 38 airports in its size category world-wide. YLW achieved an overall satisfaction rating of 4.50 out of 5 (1 being poor and 5 excellent), and ranked second overall only to Boise International Airport in Idaho.

Thanks!

“2010 was a successful year,” says Samaddar. “Our staff, tenants and stakeholder groups have accomplished a great deal and we have all set our goals and objectives for 2011 to ensure YLW is Your Link to the World. “As we move forward onto the next phases of the Drive to 1.6 Million Passengers program, 2011 promises to be an exciting year.” To learn more about Kelowna International Airport, see ylw.kelowna.ca.

Albert Baldeo been developed. Texters use a new form of shorthand. Their communication might look something like this: WRUD (what are you doing?) NMU (not much, you?) JAD (just another

day) M2 (me too) To show some humour in the conversation, a texter may end the conversation with LOL (Laughing out loud). The truth is many of us do not laugh out loud, especially when we are alone. I come from a family in which there was much laughter. My father used to say, always try to leave a friend smiling. Our youngest brother is a stand up comedian in Los Angeles.

At the age of 75, he still has people laughing. I once asked him what he does when he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get his audience to laugh. He responded that he has some real â&#x20AC;&#x153;dead-ringersâ&#x20AC;? that would make anyone laugh and if they still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laugh, I simply say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enjoy your drink and have a good night.â&#x20AC;? You just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force people to laugh. Comedians have to be very sensitive to their audience and to read them well. Laughter can be so contagious, that we join in even when we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what there is to laugh about. On Sunday as we sat around with family members, including two of my grandchildren, I suggested that we all needed a laugh and so we proceeded to start laughing together, so hilariously that we almost could not stop. It was great fun, just to laugh together.

role in balancing negative emotions such as fear and anxiety. King Solomon knew this long ago when he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A cheerful heart is good medicine.â&#x20AC;? (Proverbs 17:22) Abraham Lincoln bearing up under the weight of the presidential office said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the frightful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh, I should die.â&#x20AC;? We know that humour promotes physiological well-being, raises self-esteem and can reduce anxiety, stress and tension and improve the immune system. Comedian Red Skelton ,who was a master at making people laugh, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153; I live by this credo, Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness, instead of sadness. Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something to laugh about, if you try

hard enough.â&#x20AC;? As a person living with Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, I sometimes have difficulty getting dressed. I find myself putting both legs into one side of my pants and all I can do is laugh at myself. Laughter is contagious so it helps to be around happy people. It is good to find them wherever we can and develop lasting friendships. Laughter is the cheapest luxury that mankind has. It stirs up the blood, expands the chest, electrifies the nerves, clears away the cobwebs from the brain and gives the whole system a cleansing experience. Jesus had a remarkable sense of humour and used it effectively, especially when relating to religious leaders. God bless you in your laughter. Albert Baldeo is a retired United Church minister.

Why do we laugh? Researchers say that we will laugh when a joke goes in a different direction than the one that we expected. Laughter conveys a sense of pleasure. Babies discover the ability to laugh when they are only a few months old. Researchers say that young children laugh 400 hundred times a day compared to adults three times a day, Scientists say that older people are less likely to laugh at a joke, but will roar with laughter at slapstick comedy. Some of us laugh to break the tension or when we are nervous or embarrassed. What then are the benefits of laughter? Laughter is a tranquilizer without any side affects. Although the purpose of human laughter is still largely unknown, having a sense of humour is a key part of our personalities and it can play a powerful

Buying a condominium means learning a new legal language

D

uring the course of completing the purchase of her condominium, a firsttime buyer recently contacted me to inquire about the paperwork needed to be filled out, commenting wryly that she now needed to learn “condo speak.” Even before moving in to her new place, she was already aware that an entire new lexicon had to be learned to cope with living in a condominium community. The first thing a new comer encounters are forms and forms and more forms. In fact the Strata Property Act literally has forms from A to Z. Thankfully, they had to stop when all the letters in the alphabet were used. Fortunately, most strata members will only need to deal with a few of them. A prospective purchaser, or their representative, will likely want an optional Form B, the Information Certificate. This form costs $35 and provides an array of valuable information re-

STRATA SCENE

Gunnar Forsstrom quired to make an informed decision. For example, it includes such items as monthly strata fees, arrears, the amount in the Contingency Reserve Fund, legal proceedings pending and the number of rental units allowed. The Form F, or Certificate of Payment, is required to transfer title. The purpose of this form, which costs $15, is to declare if there is any money owed by the unit. If there is an outstanding balance then it must be stated that satisfactory measures have been taken to resolve the debt. The Form A is a proxy appointment used by members who are unable to attend an Annual General Meeting or Special General Meeting. By appointing a proxy

the member transfers their voting rights to an entitled individual who will attend the meeting. The proxy appointments are either for general purposes, specific meetings or specific resolutions. Stratas that amend their bylaws need to file a Form I with the Land Ti-

tle Office in Kamloops. There no longer is a deadline for filing, however, the amendment doesn’t take affect until it is registered. One document you want to avoid is the Form G, the Certificate of Lien. Due to the recent economy, stratas are resorting more to filing

liens to ensure their financial position is protected should the condo fall into foreclosure and/or a court ordered sale. Condo speak is also replete with acronyms. SL, AGM, SGM, LCP, CRF and HVAC are often used acronyms that newbies should get to know. The worst, of course,

is NSF. That is covered by Division 1 (1) of the Schedule of Standard Bylaws (or depending on specific amendments) and could result in interest charges, a fine or Small Claims court action. Not to worry though, there is always an LLB available to make sure you don’t end up in

CRAP —that’s Condo Residents Acronym Prison. StrataScene is intended for general information purposes only. Gunnar Forsstrom is a licensed Strata Manager with Coldwell Banker Horizon Realty. 250-860-1411 gforsstrom@coldwellbanker.ca

Quintessential Jaguar is thoroughly modern Lorne Drury CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

For many people, the Jaguar brand epitomizes style, luxury and sophistication. I’ve mentioned before, that over the years when people learned I was an automotive journalist, many of them said to me, ‘if I could own, or even drive in one car, it would be a Jaguar.’ That’s quite a compliment for a marque that had seen its fortunes decline. Quality issues and a sense that the firm had lost its way and fallen behind the pack in the luxury car market conspired to take some of the luster off the Jaguar brand a few years ago.

But, despite that, Jaguar still had that ‘bling’ and it was a car people admired and lusted after. Those quality issues are now largely a thing of the past as the Jaguar brand has been rated at or near the top in recent vehicle initial quality studies. And now, under the ownership of India’s Tata Motors, the cat is back and in a big way with a revamped lineup, including significant changes to its flagship sedan, the XJ for 2011. Since its debut in 1968, the XJ has been the centerpiece of the Jaguar line. The four-door, rearwheel-drive sedan had a six-cylinder engine under See Jaguar B2

Today, a 5.0-litre DOHC V8 engine powers the base 2011 XJ, with a twinscroll supercharger added to the top two models in the lineup. A sleek new exterior design for 2011 makes the XJ a car that luxury buyers will now shop against the Audi A8, Mercedes SClass, BMW 7-Series and the Lexus LS460.

rent XF sedan. Both have a drag coefficient of 0.29. The goal of the new design was to take the XJ back to its roots as a style leader, but still retain the sporty nature Jaguars have developed over the years. Design chief Ian Callum and his crew have succeeded as the XJ is clearly the best looking sedan in the segment and Callum says the XJ is the boldest interpretation yet of his vision for Jaguar in the 21st century and he calls it a ‘thoroughly modern interpretation of the quintessential Jaguar.’ The XJ not only looks fast, it is fastã particularly the supercharged variant. And a major reason is the weight it has shed over the years. Through the extensive use of aluminum, along with magnesium and composite alloys, the body is now significantly lighter (136 kg lighter than a comparable steel body), but at the same time stiffer. Three engine choices are available in the 2011 XJ; a naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8 making 385 hp, a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 making 470 hp and a limited production XJ Supersport with 510 hp. There are also regular and long-wheelbase versions with the long-wheelbase models designed with an ‘L’. The long wheelbase provides more interior room, including an extra 127 mm of legroom for rear-seat passengers.

My tester was the midlevel XJL Supercharged, priced at $107,000. Add the optional heated windshield ($300) and freight and PDI and the as-tested price topped out at $108,650. The base XJ starts at $88,000, while the XJL is $95,500. j The Supercharged models are $104,000 and $107,000, while the Supersport versions are $128,000 and $131,000. While these prices are way out of my range and that of the majority of our readers, for anyone shopping in this segment, I believe the XJ could be considered a bargain compared with the competition. And, to top it off, Jaguar offers something called Platinum Coverage for all cars it sells. Over and above the standard five year, 80,000 km warranty, Jaguar provides complimentary scheduled service including no-cost replacement of wear and tear items like windshield wipers etc. As sleek and elegant as the XJ is on the outside, inside is where it truly shines. The leather is as soft and supple as you’ll ever find in an automobile and Jaguar uses wood accents to give it a ‘homey’ feeling. My test car had a tan interior with burl oak wood trim making for a luxurious-looking combination. Of course, befitting a luxury car like this, the front seats have heatSee Jaguar B5

Red Light Cameras: a few Pros and Cons to Consider By Kate Wells There are many pros and even a few cons regarding the installation of red light cameras at intersections throughout British Columbia. Advantages are quite obvious: It will catch those drivers who continually push the envelope, break laws at intersections and inevitably put all other road users at risk. The implementation of red light cameras will minimize the number of drivers who run red lights and fine those drivers $167.

But, are the cameras going to really stop crashes at intersections? One argument would be no; it could possibly increase them. Red light cameras will be a good source of revenue for municipalities and hopefully part of this revenue will go toward educating all drivers on how to approach an intersection properly. Why? Because some predict the downside to red light cameras will be an increased number of rearend collisions. Many U.S. studies have found

a rise in rear-end-collisions due to the hesitation from certain drivers at intersections with red light cameras. These drivers are so worried about getting a fine, they opt to just “slam on their brakes” instead of taking time to assess the proper procedure. As a driver, do you know what the “Point of No Return” is? Do you understand the factors involved in determining your Point of No Return? As drivers approach an intersection, and the light changes to yellow, they need to determine if

a safe stop is possible. Many factors will help determine this, such as the speed they are travelling, condition of the vehicle and the road, the proximity of the vehicle behind them and even the slope of the road they are travelling on. This is why educating drivers is so important. There is no doubt we will see a decrease in motorists running red lights. But will we see an increase in rear-end crashes? Only time will tell. • Road Test Packages • Get 6 Months Off your ‘N’ • Get School Graduation Credits

Winter’s worst doesn’t slow the 2011 Hyundai Tucson Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

The biggest challenge in attending the annual auto show in Detroit is not the 12-hour days; it’s getting there. The reason is weather. Like Chicago, Detroit is subject to lake effect driven winter storms that, combined with the flat and featureless landscape, can treacherous road conditions and even disorientation. I can remember 1999 when the snow in downtown Detroit was above the knees and so wet that I could not make it from my hotel to Cobo Hall which was directly across the street. So when I drive to Detroit, I select my vehicle wisely. Four- or all-wheeldrive is a must as is fuel economy because service centres along the way are few and far between. Actually it was a query from a reader about fuel consumption that led me to pick a 2011 Hyundai Tucson GLS AWD for the annual drive to Detroit. The reader wanted a compact CUV and the Tucson was on his short

list of three. Because form follows function in the red hot Canadian compact CUV segment, they tend to be the same in terms of content, utility, cargo/ passenger volume and, of course, fuel. Hyundai was one of the first to open up this segment which has since caught fire with Canadians. Indeed, I did a little research and found out I drove a Tucson all the way back in 2004. Kind of dumpy in terms of styling and a bit on the slow side with a 2.0-litre engine, that first generation Tucson was nevertheless like all Hyundais being stoutly built and generous in terms of standard equipment and, here’s the biggy, easy on the wallet. A lot of water has passed under the automotive bridge since then and Hyundai today is a world automotive power, being one of the few automotive companies to ride serenely over the world banking meltdown of two years ago. But the battle to stay competitive against competitors like Toyota RAV4, Honda CRV and VW Ti-

Virtual instrument gauges ‘build before your eyes’ Jaguar from B2 ing, cooling and massaging features. A panoramic glass sunroof is part of the new XJ design, allowing for a lower, more streamlined roofline. The expanse of glass adds to feeling of light and space inside as well. But the coolest part of the cabin is 12.5-inch screen containing a ‘virtual instruments’ gauge cluster, replacing your standard speedometer and tachometer. To the right of that is an eight-inch touch screen for the navigation system, audio controls, vehicle setup and the like. Climb in, sit down in the nicely bolstered seat, push the start button and the cat roars more than it purrs. As Jaguar literature describes it, the virtual dials ‘build before your eyes.’ The center dial has a speedometer flanked on either side by a rev counter and an information window with fuel and temperature gauges.

CONTRIBUTED

THE NEW JAGUAR XJ is a looker from all angles, including the rear. It has a trunk capacity of 430 litres. To make it easier to read, the display uses sort of spotlight effect to show off the most important information like speed or engine revs. However, if fuel is running low or the driver is changing the audio system, the tach fades away temporarily as the warning message or menu is displayed.

Also top drawer is the 1,200-watt Bowers & Wilkins sound system (standard on my tester) that has 20 speakers, producing a sound as good as good as I’ve ever encountered in an automobile. Rather than a traditional gearshift lever, a round dial on the center console elevates when the engine is started. Simply twist

the dial to the desired gear and you’re ready to hit the road. Of course, you can also tailor your driving experience with JaguarDrive Control to one of three different transmission modes: normal, Dynamic and Winter. In Dynamic mode, shift times are extended, the suspension is stiffened and the colour of the main

gearshift lever on the XJ. Instead this rotary dial pops up from the centre console when the engine is started and a simple turn of the dial will engage whatever gear is selected. instrument dial changes. In Winter mode, the car starts in second gear to provide better traction in low-grip conditions. The XJ uses an air suspension to keep the ride height level despite the load as well as an Adaptive Dynamics active damping system that automatically tailors the damper settings to suit both road conditions and the way the car is being driven. In essence, it delivers just the right balance of body control and ride comfort. The XJL gets off the line in a real hurry, scam-

pering from 0-100 km/h in about 5.2 seconds for the Supercharged (4.9 seconds for the Supersport model) with its sixspeed automatic. Even the base car does the 0-100 run in about 5.7 seconds. Not bad for a big car that actually feels much smaller than it is on the road. While it scoots up to speed in nice time, the brakes on the XJL are also very efficient. During AJAC Car of the Year testing last fall, the XJL took just 37.7m to come to a stop from 100 km/h. So much like its name-

AWD activates in time Hyundai from B4 This year’s drive from Toronto to Detroit started out with snow falling heavily. The plows were just keeping up with it but that meant slushy drifts on top of frozen pavement on the main highway. Here I could just feel the Tucson starting to slew a millisecond before the AWD activated. Instinctively, I lifted off the gas with the sensation of just beginning to lose grip being heightened by the

AWD. Two weeks before I passed by the Strathroy, Ont. area, there was a snowstorm so big that cars and trucks and their occupants were stranded for a day. As usual, I stopped overnight at a friend’s farm in the vicinity only to hear him warn of an expected 10-15 cm of snow overnight. It didn’t happen but there was still about five cm on the ground. My friend offered to snow

blow his half-kilometre long driveway but I said I’d just drive out. Besides, if there was slow going, I could always lock up the AWD for maximum traction. Thanks to four good snow tires, I just motored away with no slithering or wheel spinning with the AWD digging in and doing the job. There were more weather incidents, but you get the picture.

Hyundai from B6 Coming back in frigid temperatures, I put the Tucson on cruise with the XM satellite radio on Real Jazz and rolled along almost all the way back to Toronto in what was actually an enjoyable and leisurely drive. Hyundai has made huge strides, not just in Canada, but also around the world. But the other thing is Hyundai has more than taken its place in the mainstream of Canadian consumer trust which is a major accomplishment considering the awful products it was selling when the company opened its Canadian doors some 25 years ago. No matter what Tucson model you buy, each comes with two, five year or 100,000 km warranties and three years and unlimited mileage on the roadside assistance program. If you have been considering a compact CUV, as many Canadians are rdoing these days, the 2011 Hyundai Tucson is well worth considering.

BRODIE – BRIGITTE AUGUSTA

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Mom (Nana) born May 9th, 1939, in Erfurt, Germany. She left us peacefully January 14th, 2011 at Kelowna General Hospital after a long battle with many strokes (special thanks to the 4th floor East staff). She is survived by her loving sons Keith and Richard, daughter-in-law Sandi and granddaughters Kati Lyn and Emili Rose. Her love for the historical arts, music and food showed us all how much she cherished memories past and present. Putting aside her own needs, her selflessness combined with a heart of gold was only natural to this wonderful women, who prided herself on creating happiness for all. “It’s all about the little things” she once said. We think we all can agree she will be sadly missed. A celebration of Brigitte’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480 Oak Street, Room B321, Vancouver, BC, V6H 3V4.
