RVs parked on farmland raise conflict Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

Paula Morrison moved to her rural neighbourhood about 10 years ago to raise her children and live a peaceful existence. It was all going well until recently, when a cavalcade of RVs moved onto her street, increasing what was once a six-home neighbourhood into an area of residence for 34 families. And that number, she said, is ever-increasing. “I started noticing that one neighbour was moving trailers onto his property and I thought it was family or friends,” she said. “Then I found out he was renting month-to-month. We have a wonderful pocket of farmland here and every time I wake up it seems like there’s another RV site opening.” While making inquiries into how her neighbourhood could change so quickly, she learned that these RV farm sites are sanctioned by the city, through business licenses, and are an approved use of farmland by the Agricultural Land Commission. It was a policy that didn’t resonate well with Morrison, as she believes most of the businesses have nothing to do with agriculture—paving over trees to bring in camping pads. And worse yet, it’s creating a safety concern for the families who are using the land for traditional farming, she said. “There’s a density, environmental and sustainability issue here,” she said, explaining that most of those who use the site aren’t tourists, they’re full-time residents. “We already see a rise in police enforcement in our area, directly linked to the current 10-site trailer park/ property that has been running for the past year (on) Morrison Road,” she stated. “With two more properties approved and the addition of 18 more sites to the area and one directly adjacent to our property, we are gravely concerned with the increased negative impact of the tenants and the impact on the surrounding neighbours, and the safety of children.” See Conflict A10

Several bystanders provided comfort to an 88-year-old woman who was struck down by a SUV at a marked crosswalk on KLO Road. The pedestrian was taken to Kelowna General Hospital with unknown injuries. Police say charges are pending against the driver of the vehicle who hit the pedestrian, a 65-year-old woman (right) sitting in the passenger seat of the SUV.

CORD granted funds to fight West Nile virus Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The province has cut the number of areas it funds to fight West Nile virus. And while the Central and South Okanagan areas remain on the list, the north Okanagan has been dropped.

According to Central Okanagan Regional District spokesman Bruce Smith, CORD has received $274,500 to fight the virus, an amount that includes an additional $45,000 so CORD can monitor and treat areas on the Westbank First Nation land. In addition to the Cen-

tral Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen Regional Districts, the Fraser Valley and Metro Vancouver were kept on the funding list for this year. The change was made because the province says it wants to concentrate on the areas deemed to be at highest risk from West Nile virus, a disease that

is carried by mosquitoes and can be transferred to humans. Last year, the provinces first two cases of the virus found in humans were detected in the South Okanagan. Smith said locally there are 10,000 catch basins used to check and treat for West Nile vi-

rus in mosquitoes, most of which are located in Kelowna. Others are in Peachland, Lake Country, West Kelowna and the two electoral areas of the regional district. Now there will be one set up on WFN land as well, he added. See Fight A10

Back country protection blitz unveiled

Need for water safety is apparent

Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

While the rest of the province enjoys the Victoria Day long weekend, the valley’s conservation officers, RCMP and forest ministry compliance officers will be keeping activities in check on the backroads and waters of the Okanagan. The objective, explains Josh Lockwood, field supervisor for the CO service in the northern part of the valley, is to protect the environment and keep everyone safe. He warns that an integrated law enforcement blitz of the north and south Okanagan will include patrols of backroads to prevent environmental damage on Crown land being done by motorized vehicles, including mud bogging. It will include public education, action to deter those bent on violating legislation and the apprehension of violators. “We intend to prevent any large scale gatherings that will cause environmental damage,” he warned. Environmentally sensitive areas such as grasslands, wetlands, streams, hillsides and alpine lands which provide critical habitat for plants and animals can suffer long-term damage from the single use of a motorized vehicle. Recreational vehicle users are expected to respect the environment and stay on authorized roads, trails, and in designated motorized vehicle areas. As well, those riding dirt bikes and quads are reminded that forest service roads such as Beaver Lake Road, Postill Lake Road, McCulloch Road to Highway 33, Philpott Road to kilometre eight and Bear Main are legally classified as highways, so vehicles must be licensed and insured to use them.

CONSERVATION OFFICER field supervisor Josh Lockwood (above) will be busy this May long weekend keeping activities in check in the Okanagan Valley backwaters and roads. Kelowna firefighters Brad Pfenning and Ryan Corsi (left) with the Fire Department Rescue boat will be on patrol.

the Arts will also be out enforcing regulations regarding helmet use, licenses and insurance, spark arrestors, noted Lockwood. Above all, he said there will be no tolerance for open alcohol. “People die on backroads because of alcohol,” he said. The Motor Vehicle Act will be enforced, along with the Water Act, Wildlife Act, and other relevant legislation, he said.

Foreshore development issues will also be on their radar, he said. “People often arrive at the lake on the long weekend to begin working on structures that are below the high water mark. That’s not their property,” he warned. Sport fishing regulations will also be enforced, and everyone operating a motorized boat now needs an operators’ permit, he noted. On the water, patrols will be checking boaters for licens-

ing, life jackets, navigational aids if they’re travelling after dark, spotters if there are water skiers and other marine safety regulations. Environment Minister Barry Penner added: “We also want to remind everyone that it is illegal to litter and that it is their responsibility to properly manage food and other attractants to prevent conflicts with wildlife.” Those out camping this weekend should practice ‘no trace’ camping, taking everything away with them and leaving no evidence they were there. Hikers should stay on trails to protect the surrounding ecosystem, particularly in spring

when new growth is vulnerable and when the ground is damp. Before fishing or hunting, check the current regulations and have your licence with you. Another concern is forest fires, and fines will be levied against anyone found in contravention of a burning restriction. If you see anyone involved in any suspicious activity, you can anonymously report it on the Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 1-877-952-7277(RAPP), but jot down critical information such as the location, licence numbers, descriptions of people and vehicles. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

With three deaths on Okanagan waterways this year alone, the valley is leading the province in water-related deaths. To turn things around, a number of other government agencies are pushing their safety agenda this week in hopes that no more lives will be lost. “These deaths are an alarming trend and we want to nip it in the bud,” said Christopher Marrie, boating safety officer with Transport Canada, at the beginning of Boat Safety Week, May 21 to 27. “In the Okanagan storms kick up with no warning, and if you go down without a life jacket, you won’t come out alive.” Bluntly describing what causes too many deaths on local waterways, Marrie explained that bodies have a natural reaction to cold temperatures, and that’s to inhale deeply. If that inhalation takes place underwater, a litre is ingested and the only thing that will save a life is a flotation device. Sgt. of operations for the Conservation Office, Josh Lockwood, added that many of those who come into harms way while boating are on small vessels, under four metre, and don’t think they need to wear a life jacket. That, he said, is dead wrong and he stressed they should have them on or nearby if he’s on the lake. “We see people who stand up while trying to get their fish over the net and they lose their balance,” he said, adding they are among those who leave their jackets on shore without thinking. “We are educating boaters.” They’re also handing out fines. No licensing, no jackets and no competency can land boaters fines up to $250 apiece. “We hope to achieve no fatalities,” he said.

It’s a place anyone can visit because it’s not private property, and its many heritage values have been preserved for the edification and enjoyment of our grandchildren’s grandchildren. Due to a far-sighted decision made in December 1995, this piece of lake frontage, complete with creek, waterfalls, beach, many heritage buildings and two campgrounds and picnic sites, is owned by thee and me.

On the whole, I prefer not to share my wilderness experiences with hundreds of others, but Fintry is the one place it’s worth it. In counterpoint to all my criticism of the provincial government for its cutbacks in recent years to services and staff in the resource ministries, kudos to some visionary both there and at the Central Okanagan Regional District for realizing 15 years ago the gem that had to be preserved at Fintry for us and future generations. But, particularly with rampant growth such as experienced in this region in recent years, there are other gems which we’ll never be able to replace if we permit them to be paved over or built on now.

life and natural plant communities. The trick is to get to such lands before they’re eternally altered. (And, that’s why unscrupulous developers will get onto such a piece of land before ever applying for rezoning and destroy everything natural on the landscape.) The biggest stumbling block for such trusts is money. Occasionally a community-minded or committed conservationist will donate lands in order to ensure they’re conserved, but more often, such properties must be bought. Often, they escape notice until development is imminent, and then the owner believes his land is already worth what it would be if it were developed in that way—so the land has already increased in price, in his view. It happened with a little parcel of wetland and pond adjacent to Rose Valley elementary school in West Kelowna, but a collaboration of groups including the regional district, the Okanagan Wildlife Heritage Fund, Nature Trust and COLT worked with the community to purchase it. It’s now the basis of a large, wilderness regional park. It happened with Woodhaven Regional Park, where the Nature Trust was also involved in ensuring its varied ecosystems were conserved; and also with parcels that are now part of Okanagan Mountain Park.

▼ LOSS OF WETLANDS

Cabin owners opposed to Lake Country’s damming plan STAFF REPORTER

A plan to dam Beaver, Crooked and Oyama Lake reservoirs above Lake Country is riling cottage owners who lease land along their shores. Okanagan Cottage Owners’ Association president Lloyd Manchester told the Central Okanagan Regional District board Monday night that his group is opposed to the District of Lake Country’s plan primarily because of potential environmental impacts. “Islands on Beaver Lake would be under water,” began Manchester. “Biologically we’re not sure of all the damage that would be done. It would certainly damage some of the wetlands that exist on Crooked Lake.” Manchester noted damage to wetlands would be irreparable. “Once they’re flooded, they’re gone,” he told the board. Loss of wetlands would affect moose, beaver and muskrat and varieties of endangered toad and salamander species, Manchester explained. He also said Lake Country had not yet adequate studied what harm the damming could cause. “The (B.C.) Ministry of Environment, in just recently talking to them, is saying that Lake Country has not supplied sufficient

James Baker information on which to make an adjudication of their application. “Therefore, they need more information, more hydrology, more studies like this to show what’s going to happen, what are the environmental impacts (and) what are the mitigation costs.” Lake Country Mayor James Baker stated his municipality would be doing studies to address concerns like those Manchester brought up. “You could have saved us some money if you told us you were doing it,” said Baker, tongue in cheek. Baker mentioned his municipality applied to the B.C. government for permission to dam Beaver and Oyama Lake chains to increase the stores in the reservoirs. The move is necessary because, as trees die from pine beetle kill, run off would happen faster each year and the freshet would need to be retained for supplies for the remainder of the year.

He also noted that climate change would make it necessary to store more water and better control streams like Vernon Creek, which would run dry half the year if flows were not managed. However, Manchester noted that the exercise would only add 10 per cent to Lake Country’s domestic water stores. The regional board opted to take neither side in the debate, simply

choosing to receive maps and information Manchester provided. However, Baker did tell the board later in the evening what might be motivating the cabin owners to oppose Lake Country’s plan. In August, the province is due to lift a moratorium on the sale of Crown lease lots on reservoir lakes. “The presentation by the cottage owners’ as-

sociation is because, and (Manchester) did mention, the moratorium is coming off, where fee simple (ownership) may be the case on those reservoir lots,” continued Baker. “The province may take into their heads to sell, to put some money into their coffers. So it is an issue. And it is something we’re still opposing.” Lake Country has op-

posed the lot sales, fearing that the municipality would need to purchase portions of the properties in the future, at great cost to taxpayers, to raise reservoirs. Manchester had told the board that his association would again be pursuing purchase possibilities. “We’ll be seeking support to buy our cabins and we’ll be back with more information then,” said

▼ FORESTRY

China’s appetite for lumber being fed by Tolko mills STAFF REPORTER

Although it won’t affect the Kelowna Tolko Industries mill directly, a second purchase agreement with China National Building Materials certainly helps current operations during a difficult time for B.C.’s forest industry, admits Rob Fraser, general manager of Okanagan operations. A first supply agreement was reached last fall with the company, which

is China’s number one lumber distributor to the country’s construction industries. Combined they are equivalent to two full mills’ production and will support 400 mill and woodland jobs. Fraser said the first one is mostly supplied from the Quesnel mill while this one will be supplied from the Nicola mill in Merritt, Lakeview in Williams Lake and the Lavington mill. Both are for dimension lumber.

“It all helps us to be economically viable overall,” commented Fraser. Since it’s a new market, it will help to support current operations, but it doesn’t help to re-open any that have closed recently. “Growth in China has been significant in the past five years. There’s a lot of focus on developing that market by the provincial government, particularly forests minister Pat Bell,” he said. Government working

with government is an important first step to doing business in China. “All the trade missions to China helped pave the way; they’re door openers for us,” said Fraser. “I believe China custom will be a significant part of our business in the future.” In the past, the Okanagan company was very reliant on the U.S. market, but it’s that housing market that’s crashed, leaving the B.C. lumber industry gasping for breath.

IHA says cuts will balance $1.6 billion budget Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The scalpel work that the Interior Health Authority took to its finances this past year appears to have worked. Cuts in a number of areas including staff overtime, travel and other administrative costs, as well as axing 100 jobs in administration and support services, have helped the health authority balance its $1.6-billion budget this year. Late last year, IH confirmed it was facing a potential $30-million deficit and had to take immediate measures if it wanted to keep the books in the black by the end of the fiscal year. Health authorities in B.C., like school districts, are not allowed to submit

Rob Halpenny deficit budgets to the government. “Providing health care every year is a challenge and this was no different,” said Interior Health Authority CEO Rob Halpenny when asked about the difficulty balancing the books for a year that included the biggest economic downturn since the depression of the 1930s. “It’s always a challenge to provide the care

needed with the resources provided.” Halpenny, who took over the helm of the health authority after many of the cost-reduction measures were put in place by his predecessor Murray Ramsden, credits the IH staff with working hard to help balance the budget. No stranger to IH leadership, as he was a senior executive under Ramsden, Halpenny said the current management restructuring he has now put in place at the health authority will also help with future budgets. That restructuring includes having one vicepresident, Joanne Konnert, oversee the authority’s two tertiary hospitals, Kelowna General and Royal Inland in Kamloops, and another vicepresident, Alan Sinclair,

in charge of acute care services at the IH’s other, smaller hospitals across the southern Interior. Halpenny said provision of services are now population-based. As a result, while there will be more services provided in Kelowna and Kamloops, there will also be a full program of “core” services at the other hospitals. He said, the changes were management driven, not based on complaints or concerns expressed by the public. As for major highlights of the past year, Halpenny listed IH’s response to major events such as the deadly avalanche in Revelstoke this past winter, last simmer’s forest fires in Glenrosa and Rose Valley, the H1N1 virus response, and the announcements of a cardiac centre

Lack of water visibility cancels kayaker search Kathy Michaels CONTRIBUTOR

Poor underwater visibility prompted the RCMP to suspend the search for the kayaker on Wednesday who had been reported missing last weekend at McCulloch Lake. “These decisions are never easy, we always talk to the family, discuss the rationale and in this case they understand,” said Const. Steve Holmes. “We have basically done what we can do and if anything changes with the clarity, or lack of, we will go back but at this point we have exhausted any possibilities.” Prior to the search being suspended on Wednesday, RCMP divers searched a murky area of the lake where Kelowna resident Eric Thomas’s overturned kayak was found and the process was particularly challenging. “The divers moved around, literally, by touch in the zero visibility water, but were unable to locate him,” said Holmes. Due to the turbidity of the water, Holmes said it would be impossible to search the entire lake in the same man-

ner. A sonar scan would also be ineffective because of an excess of the debris and sunken trees on the lake bottom would yield misleading results. “The problem is that we don’t know definitively where the kayak overturned,” Holmes said. “People have alluded to the fact that there were some wind gusts, so where he went in, and the boat ended up…for us to search that expanded area with divers is not only impossible but also very risky.” If there was some clarity, Holmes said much of the search could have been done by sight, but searching such a large area just by touch is unfeasible. The lake search has been halted for the time being, but aerial flyovers of the lake by the RCMP Air 3 helicopter, will be made several times a day in the hopes of spotting Thomas, and should lake conditions change in the future, divers could re-enter the lake. Thomas left his southeast Kelowna home for a solo afternoon kayaking trip on Saturday and was reported overdue on Sunday. His truck was also found parked at the McCulloch Lake Reservoir.

A Grade 5 student will be on his way to Montreal after winning a regional French spelling contest. Jonathan Smart, a student at Ecole Glenmore Elementary, won a trip to Montreal after successfully spelling French words in the Dictée PGL written test. Smart will join 100 other students from the United States, Canada and Africa at the final in Montreal on May 23. Smart’s teacher, Natalie Perrier, said the Dictée is open every year to francophone students, as well as French immersion students.

Jonathan Smart Entry is voluntary, and Perrier takes her class through the test each year. The organizing PGL Foundation was begun by former Quebec Minister of Education Paul GérinLajoie. The goal of the foundation is to raise funds to help build schools and

provide school supplies to French-speaking third world countries. Perrier said the foundation is well organized, sending participating classes activity booklets so they can study specific words. As the class learns the words to spell in the texts, they also learn about the need for schools in French-speaking countries like Haiti. “We talk about the need to help third world countries with school supplies.” Smart successfully spelled a 70-word text in French to win the regional competition, after topping other Grade 5 students at Ecole Glenmore. “Of all the kids, he did the best job.” Smart’s mother

Michelle said Jonathan has been enrolled since kindergarten at Ecole Glenmore, but this year was his first attempt at the Dictée PGL. Michelle noted most French immersion students write the test at their school with their own teacher. Michelle was also in French immersion as a child, a graduate of the third class of immersion students in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. She found it a great experience, and pointed out immersion students put in the same number of hours learning but come out of school with knowledge of a second language. “I think it’s a great asset.” msimmons@kelownacapnews.com

Kelowna mayor calls for drought management plan Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER

Local water purveyors need to be on the same page when it comes to drought planning in the Central Okanagan Regional District, according to Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd. At this week’s regional board meeting, Shepherd told the directors that the regional district should be creating a drought plan similar to those being implemented in Central Okanagan municipalities and improvement districts. “I don’t think that there’s an actual drought plan for the regional district water systems,” said Shepherd. “I don’t think it would hurt to have (one).” Shepherd said if the regional district was on the same page as municipalities, then water conservation efforts would be easier to communicate to Central Okanagan residents. “It’s for having a common message that we’re all trying to work on the same approach,” said Shepherd. The Central Okanagan is into is second year of low snowpack accumulations in many areas and subsequently, that’s led to reduced runoffs into Okanagan Lake and high elevation reservoirs. As a result, on May 10 Kelowna city council passed a motion directing its water utility customers to go to odd/even watering days from June 1 until Sept. 30. Under the system homes with odd numbered addresses water on odd numbered dates and houses with even numbered addresses water on even numbered dates. Underground irrigation must be set to water between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and manual watering is permitted between 6 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and midnight. Strata properties are also required to follow the system. However, even within the City of Kelowna, watering restrictions may vary because a number of improvement districts manage water in areas like Glenmore/Ellison, Rutland, Black Mountain and South East Kelowna. Therefore, residents should check individual restrictions in their particular areas. In South East Kelowna for example, restrictions have already been reduced to two days per week because of low reservoir levels.

As for the regional district’s systems, administrator Harold Reay said that

his staff would be working on conservation plans later this year after its cus-

tomers had water meters installed in their homes. “When that’s in place

there will be more steps taken.” The regional board

made a motion, however, formally requesting that staff prepare a report on

drought planning later in the year. jluciw@kelownacapnews.com

▼ AGRI-TOURISM

Kelowna city council eyes stricter rules on RVs parked at farms Conflict from A1 The concerns of Morrison and others are at the centre of a soon-tobe scheduled public hearing that was discussed at Monday’s city council meeting. City staff offered up some stricter bylaws to deal with the 14 to 16 RV agri-tourism sites currently operating on farmland around Kelowna, where neighbours’ concerns over the sanitary facilities provided, as well as the impact on agricultural land, run rampant. Proposed regulations, which could come to be after the hearing, would address those issues by restricting the number of RV spots that could be made available on farms, and pushing the boundary of the RV site further into the landowner’s space, among other things. Coun. Luke Stack has been speaking with Kelowna residents who are being impacted by campgrounds, and has visited a few to suss out what’s

happening. “I went to look at the ones at Morrison Street and they look very much like an established RV Park, and that disturbed me,” said Stack. “The idea of agritourism is to support local farmers and enhance the viability of a particular farm. “My concern is if the RV part of the park dominates the farm, that’s not supporting the primary goal of agriculture.” At minimum, Stack said he’d like to see firm regulations on how many RV units can be put on a farm, minimum setbacks from neighbours and other farms, and that there is something binding people from making the RV site their permanent residence. “When I looked around, some RVs had framed in the bottom of their trailers,” he said. “The purpose was never to create more housing.” That, in conjunction with misuse, has prompt-

ed Stack to believe the city should not only enforce the existing bylaws more ardently, but also stop issuing business licenses for future RV campground owners. It’s not a point of view that resonated well with Catalina Dudka, of Caramoomel Natural Fine Foods. Her family has farmed 20 acres of land at Morri-

son Road since the 1970s, and have adapted several times to make ends meet. RV agri-tourism, she said, is just a natural evolution to an industry that’s struggling. “We needed more exposure, it was a complimentary thing. Visitors stay, do a tour of the facilities, love them, buy them and give them away, spreading the word,” she said. There are two other RV farm sites on her street. While hers has yet to get fully into the swing of things, she’s already invested $200,000 to meet city regulations. If new restrictions come into play, she and her family will be put in a tough position. “This business isn’t easy to do,” she said of the vegetable and fruit products business her parents started 20 years ago after farming left them high and dry. “The food industry is very competitive and we needed to supplement our

income with something. “So we looked at the numbers of RVs and thought there’s a steadiness to the income we can appreciate.” Her parents run the business, and they’re aging. That alone adds incentive to the agri-tourism model, she said. “Once you set up, it doesn’t give a lot of work to upkeep, and it’s steady backup for when things aren’t so hot on the other side,” she said Dudka added that

drawing in travelers with home-made goods is a tradition that spans centuries, so she’s not sure what the fuss is all about. She also couldn’t speak to knowledge of anyone who is abusing the model by not farming the land where RVs are parked. Dudka believes that the city is lacking amenities, and those businesses are a natural evolution, filling the gap. However, that’s not something that Morrison

has any sympathy for as she’ll be at the upcoming public hearing making sure that people hear her concerns. “Ultimately the policy should be reviewed to ensure that the bylaws support farmers and that it is not detrimental to farming,” she said. “To ensure there is a connection to the land. “There is very little if any agricultural work going on the properties I have mentioned.” reporter@kelownacapnews.com

Funding to battle virus won’t cover entire Okanagan Valley Fight from A1 In the Central Okanagan, the regional district operates the mosquito control program on behalf of its member municipalities ad the WFN. Concerns have been raised by representatives in the North Okanagan about leaving that area off the funding list as mosquitoes know no boundar-

ies when it comes to their movement. They argue a valley-wide approach is needed and one-third of the valley should not be left out. While the Central Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen Regional Districts deal with West Nile virus measures differently—regional district staff and summer students are used here and a

contractor is used down south—Smith said the two regional districts do share in an advertising campaign to raise awareness among private property owners in both areas. The provincial funding pays for mosquito control only on public land. Last year, Smith said, funding extending that to Crown land in the area was cut.

‘In the line of Giving up a car for a bike is a hard sell Fire’ exhibit at I EECO centre As a species, humans have a fascination with fire. Perhaps this goes back to those times when our ancestors required the flickering flames for survival, keeping themselves warm and cooking their catch. The very word ‘fire’ conjures different images and emotions, from fear and destruction, to warmth and perhaps even peacefulness. As people have tamed fire for their advantage, we haven’t forgotten that it’s a powerful force in nature. Fire is an important factor in the health of our ecosystems and plays a part in the cycle of growth, death and decay and rebirth in our forests. Until mid-August the public is invited to explore and learn more about fire’s role in nature at the In the Line of Fire exhibit at the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan in Mission Creek Regional Park, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors will discover the aspects of fire that are beneficial to forests, the adaptations plants and animals have developed to survive the flames and what steps you and your family can take to minimize the impact of fire in interface areas by picking up a Homeowners FireSmart Manual. As well, young children can dress up as firefighters and use their extinguishers to put out fires while adults can test their knowledge about wildfires. For more information about this and other programs in Regional Parks, visit regionaldistrict.com or pick up a copy of Your Guide to Regional Parks 2010, available at local government offices and visitor centres throughout the Central Okanagan.

f you look in the back seat of my vehicle—something I rarely want to do—you’ll find what looks like my daughter’s closet. Actually, it looks like her bedroom floor, but you get the idea: running shoes ; a hoodie or two; used gum; used socks; and important notices from school, crumpled beyond recognition. We would surely have a stack of goods to fill a few drawers if we piled it all together. So, here is the reason the environment is in trouble. This is why we have to worry about greenhouse gases. This is the teetering point of our future. Experts say we are too attached to our cars and can’t live a day without them. In a recent article by CBC, a survey by the World Wildlife Federation discovered “Canadians are so attached to their vehicles that many say they would forgo sex, television, junk food or credit cards before giving up driving.� We Canadians certain-

ly have an interesting set of priorities. While that survey’s results show promise for population control and debt spending, it’s a bit scary. Seriously, who would pick the car over Twinkies? The other revelation was that “78 per cent of Canadians know driving has a negative impact on the environment, yet only one per cent would be willing to give up their cars.� We are clearly attached and dependent. One conclusion would be that the alternatives to driving aren’t that enticing. Biking is actually exercise and public transit in suburbia is inconvenient and takes too long. But, as I noted above, the real reason we can’t live without our cars,

vans, trucks and SUVs is because they are our second homes. The seats are cushy and reclined just right for us. We have a stack of our personal CDs. They are our storage units, filing cabinets and closets all in one. Our vehicles are our friends. We name our cars. We urge our cars to go faster to pass the guy in the 1972 Impala with the hat (man, not car). We have nice spots for our coffee, sunglasses and our parking tickets. It’s the vicious circle of us becoming so attached because we spend so much time in them— that we spend so much time in them because we’re attached to them. This is the key to getting people out of cars. Forget the messages about being fit and saving the planet. That’s not working. One solution is to make the eco-friendly alternatives more like home. Take our bikes, for ex-

ample. How many have heated coffee holders? Tell me, who wants to do a morning commute without some java? Bikes have spots for water bottles. That’s functional, I suppose, and practical. But, add some hightech device that perks a fresh brew as you ride and I bet way more people would ride to work—and a lot faster, too. Buses need cushier seats, great tunes and a snack bar. Now, I can understand why the seats aren’t that comfy; people already fall asleep in transit. We don’t need the whole bus snoring away during the morning commute. I also know why the tunes could be a problem, too, because not everyone likes the same music and, if the daily fight with my teenagers over the radio station dial is any indicator, that can get ugly. But, I don’t know why there aren’t snack bars. They would make a fortune with the captive

audience of people who are always in too much of a hurry to make something before they leave. Heck, you can even throw in some drinks for happy hour. You’re not driving. Who cares? Or, conversely, we could make cars less comfortable. What if cars had to be just for function? What if they had to be uncomfortable, ugly, unable to go faster than 60 km/h and without heat or air conditioning? How many of us would spend so much time in there? Huh? Well, actually, my first car was like that and I hung out in it quite a bit, but you know where I’m going. Cars are our own cozy little personal spaces and we are far too attached. While I could do without my daughter’s closet in the back seat, the grip on the steering wheel is pretty strong.

minister challenged his congregation of 1,500 people with the question: “If you had only 30 days to live, how would you spend it? What would be your priorities?” When I was younger I used to say, “If I die…” However, after a cardiac arrest in 1998 and living with Parkinson’s disease for 21 years, my statement now is, “When I die…” Every one of us eventually has to face death. None of us can escape it. Some people live as if they will never die, and others die and have never really lived. I took this question of knowing if I had only 30 days to live, what would I do? One of the things that I would do, would be to approach people whom I have offended and apologize to them, even if I was in the right. I do not want to go to my grave holding animosity and unforgiveness of any kind. I would like to spend more time with my grandchildren and encourage them to always love and respect their parents and become good citizens.

SOUL SEARCHING

Albert Baldeo I want to leave a legacy of love. I would contact all of the people who have helped me in this life, to express my gratitude for helping me along life’s journey. When I celebrated my 80th birthday in April, I invited my doctors, my chiropractor, my financial advisor, my dentist, my political representatives, my barber, my lawyer, my Rotarian friends, my colleagues in ministry, my church family, and my extended friends and family—even my undertaker—and they ALL came. I was so honoured. It was a great celebration and I am so thankful for all who came. My grandchildren and family were a source of great joy. I felt as if I was attending my own funeral, but was alive to enjoy it. The other thing that I would like to do is to cre-

ate more laughter. The whole world is so full of seriousness. I received a card this week from someone thanking me for helping them to be able to laugh again. He has gone through so much agony and suffering and continues to be in constant pain, that he has forgotten how to laugh. Sometimes there is so little laughter in workplaces and the media continues to bombard us with bad news and negative thoughts which makes people more insecure and full of fear. We pay large sums of money to hear professionals who make us laugh. I have a brother who is a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles, so I know of what I speak. The first time that laughter appears in the Bible is in the first book, in Genesis 17. We are told that when Abraham told his 90-yearold wife that God said that she was going to have a baby, he fell on his face and laughed. Sarah had the same reaction when she heard the news, so much so, that they named their son, Isaac, which means

“laughter.” At age 80, I personally don’t want any Isaacs in my life. Death is probably the least humorous situation known to us. We try to put if off as long as we can. I read where Red Skeleton described a woman who had so many face lifts that there was no skin left on the bottom of her feet. Her skin was so tight that her mouth came open when she sat down. She is probably typical of most of us when we try to slow down or cover up the aging process. When death finally comes, we often camouflage it. When we view a dead friend at a funeral, the comment is often heard, “Doesn’t he look natural? He looks like he is just asleep.” Why don’t we just say, “Doesn’t he look dead?” I have decided that I want written on my tombstone: “He laughed at death.” I know that it is not the end, because I know that there is a greater life beyond the grave. Laughter is God’s gift to us. The scripture says, “A merry heart doeth good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17: 22 So I invite you to join me starting from June 1, 2010, in this healthy exercise of reflecting on how you would spend your last 30 days of life. What would be your priorities? What is your “bucket list?” Rev. Albert Baldeo is a retired United Church minister.

Solar Days puts spotlight Study affi rms we are what we eat on ‘green’ Kelowna ▼ HEALTH

Kelowna’s participation in B.C.’s first Solar Days celebration, May 28 and 29, will give residents a chance to see the city in a new light. A solar bus tour of the city will stop at several open houses, including at St. Hubertus winery, to showcase some of Kelowna’s most inspirational ‘green’ buildings. With hundreds of events happening across B.C., Kelowna’s celebrations coincide with the Mayor’s Environmental Expo on Friday, May 28, at Mission Creek Regional Park. The Solar Bus tours will be May 29. This interactive tour is a great chance to hear of homeowners’ first-hand experiences living with solar panels, and to get an upclose look at how different

systems work. Enjoybeingchauffered around town on these free tours. All who hop on the solar bus will receive fun giveaways from SolarBC, as well as energy-saving giftpacks for the home from FortisBC. On the first tour, see what the EECO centre has to offer, including its own solar panels, a demonstration garden and native wildlife displays. The first solar bus tour leaves the EECO centre at 2363 Springfield Rd., at 10:30 a.m, travelling to the orchards of the Ellison area and up to Sunset Ranch Golf and Country Club to see the first showhome in Kelowna sporting solar panels. From there, the bus will head to a nearby open house, followed by a tour of one of the most sustain-

here is a recent study that indicates that eating hot dogs, sausage, deli meats or bacon increases your chances of acquiring heart disease by as much as 42 per cent. In addition, eating processed meats also demonstrated a link to increasing your risk of type 2 diabetes by as much as 19 per cent. These findings were published by Renata Micha in the journal Circulation. In their study, however, the researchers stated that there was no higher risk of heart disease or diabetes within the population that ate unprocessed red meat such as lamb, pork or beef. Micha stated: “Most prior studies also did not separately consider the health effects of eating unprocessed red meat ver-

able buildings in Kelowna—the home of Spider Agile Technology—complete with solar arrays, solar thermal panels, xeriscaped gardens and trees flanking the main entrance. The second tour starts with a sneak-peek behind the scenes at St. Hubertus Estate Winery, 5225 Lakeshore Rd. See the solar panels in action by joining the 12:30 p.m. tour guided by local installation company Swiss Solar Tech. The bus leaves the winery at 12:50 p.m. to visit the homes of two Kelowna families who have recently installed solar panels. The bus returns to the winery by 2:25 p.m., a perfect time for a predinner sampling of some of the Okanagan’s finest wine.

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel sus processed meats.” The lead author of the study is a research fellow in the department of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. They reached their conclusion by studying information from no less than 1,600 reports around the world involving an estimated 1.2 million people. In their study, they found that on average, about one to two slices of deli meat or one hot dog per day was associated with an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Nature’s Fare Markets Live Well. Live Organic.

Previously, it was considered that it was the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in meat that led to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. This is not the case. It is found that unprocessed and processed red meats contain similar amounts of saturated fats and cholesterol. The difference between the two types of meat is that processed meats “contain on average, four times more sodium and 50 per cent more nitrate preservatives.” Micha stated: “This suggests that differences in salt and preservatives, rather than fats, might explain the higher risk of heart disease and diabetes seen with processed meats, but not with unprocessed red meats. “Based on our findings, eating one serving per week or less would be associated with relatively small risk.” This is yet again another example of the increased risks to our health by ingesting processed foods. The foods themselves

are not harmful to us, but rather the processing of them is. We live in a society that is interested in the immediate acquisition of food and preserving them in an attempt to increase shelf life. There is a new surge of ‘how to’ books and strategies on weight loss and management of our wellness. Not all of them contain good advice, but the ones that do have one common denominator— try to retain a natural food diet comprised of whole natural foods in their natural state. It is the constituents of these natural and whole foods that nurture body and give it the nourishment it needs to thrive. To alter them, preserve them, microwave them and “enhance” them is contrary to the common sense application of our normal physiology. Sorry, but once again, we are what we eat.

▼ MENTAL HEALTH

Psychosis may be price we pay for advantage of language

S

chizophrenia and manic-depressive illness (or bipolar disorder) are arguably the two most important conditions in psychiatry. The distinction between the two originated in 1919 with the work of E. Kraeplin. There are, however, serious doubts about whether these are really two distinct disorders rather than different points on a continuum of psychosis. Any psychiatrist will tell you that there are cases in which the unequivocal distinction between the two is all but impossible. Schizoaffective disorder, which has characteristics of both, is born of that reality. The symptoms may represent an extreme variation of normal, rather than a disease caused by an external cause, such as a virus. The hallmark, first rank or nuclear symptoms of schizophrenia include: experiencing feelings and/or actions as externally controlled; hearing thoughts spoken aloud; hearing voices discussing one in the third person; hearing a commentary on one’s actions; and experiencing thoughts being removed from or inserted into one’s head or broadcast to others. These symptoms seem to represent a loss of the boundary between self and others. When defined by these nuclear symptoms,

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer schizophrenia is constant across populations that differ widely in geographic, climatic, industrial and social environments. It seems that schizophrenia is a characteristic of human populations rather than a typical disease such as diabetes or heart disease that are clearly affected by environmental factors in a way that schizophrenia is not. People with schizophrenia are at a reproductive disadvantage. They do not have as many children as those without schizophrenia for a whole variety of reasons. According to evolutionary theory, the disorder should become less common and eventually disappear with such a significant reproductive disadvantage. Nature selects for characteristics that promote the transmission of an individual’s genes. It is therefore suggested that perhaps the symptoms of schizophrenia are associated with other human characteristics that are reproductively advantageous and therefore serve to maintain these symptoms in the population. Language has been

suggested as one such human characteristic. It is thought that language is what defines our species and separates us from all others. Language is believed to have originated with a critical genetic change— the speciation event—between 100,000 to 250,000 years ago. The speciation event led to differentiation of cerebral function. In modern man, language is largely a function of the left, dominant hemisphere of the brain. Schizophrenia is associated with a failure of lateralization of brain function. It represents one extreme of natural variation within the population in which critical components of language are divided between the two hemispheres more equally than usual. This compromises a person’s ability to distinguish self from other and therefore makes it possible to hear one’s own thoughts as if they were someone else’s. All of the central symptoms in schizophrenia can be understood in this way. If this theory is correct, psychosis is the price we pay as a species for the advantage of language— and it will likely always be thus. We may find ways to alleviate symptoms and help people function in society, but traditional approaches to finding disease causation will like-

ly not be effective for this disorder.

Get growing for the food bank The Kelowna Commiunity Food Bank has invited all local orchard-

ists and backyard gardeners to once again plant an extra row of produce and help local needy families this season. The food bank’s Plant a Row Grow a Row program, an invaluable source of fresh produce for many low-income families, encourages growers and green-thumbed enthusiasts to plant an extra row of fruits and/or vegetables and donate the surplus harvest to the Food Bank. Plant a Row Grow a Row has been very successful over the years, bringing in more than 58,000 pounds of produce to the food bank since its inception in 2004. Last year, in a strong show of community support, local growers donated over 20,000 pounds. “We have seen a steady and significant increase in produce donated through this program over the years,” said Lenetta Thordarson, associate executive director for the Kelowna Community Food Bank. “Through it, we strive to improve the nutrition-

al quality and value of the food that we distribute. “Fruits and vegetables are an essential part of a well-balanced diet, yet produce is becoming less and less affordable. “Sadly, this means that more economically vulnerable people—children and seniors do not get the proper nutrition that they need.” Plant A Row Grow A Row is a communitybased initiative. Donors will be eligible to enter a draw with a chance to win one of five hanging baskets donated by the city’s parks department. And once again, Pacific Northwest Seeds has donated seeds to support this important community initiative. Gardeners will be eligible to pick up their seeds (at no cost) when they register for the program. To register for this program, please call Lenetta at 250-763-7161. Harvest donations can be dropped off at the food bank, located at 1265 Ellis St.

Jays step up to PIL Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

PLAYER/ASSISTANT COACH Jared Johnson and the Kelowna Jays will open play in the Pacific International League on Sunday at home to Coquitlam.

Semi-pro baseball has returned to the Okanagan. The Kelowna Jays will begin play in the Pacific International League this Sunday when they host the Coquitlam A’s for a doubleheader at Elks Stadium. Start time is 1 p.m. The Jays will play 20 regular season games in the 10-team loop which also features teams in Everett, Seattle, Langley, Kamloops, two in Burnaby, Bellevue and Nanaimo. Kelowna has previously fielded teams in the PIL—the Grizzlies from 1993 to 2000 and the Falcons from 2001 to 2004. The Falcons have been playing in the West Coast League since the 2005 season. As for the Jays, the local club will also continue to be part-time members of the Okanagan Major

Baseball League. Jays head coach Geoff White said a return to the PIL is a step ahead for local baseball talent. “The local teams in the valley just didn’t provide the competition we wanted to develop our players, specifically our college talent,” said White. “We’ve played some exhibition games over the years against PIL teams and we think it’s a good fit and a good way for our players to improve. We want our local college players to be able play summer ball and develop right here in Kelowna.” White will bring 10 players with him from the Okanagan College Coyotes where he was coach of the Canadian College Baseball Conference team—Nick Peruzzo, Keifer Rodway, Cory Wood, Rob Aslkne, Brendon Peron, Reed Quall, Madison Smith, Blake Young, Peter Tollenaar

and Spencer Kilpatrick. Other local talent on the roster includes Cody Valgardson, player-coach Jared Johnson, Scott Belinski of the VIU Mariners, and pitcher Dawson Newman who returns from Cowley County Community College in Kansas. Among the Jays new recruits is outfielder Darren Kolk, the MVP of the Canadian junior team last season and junior college catcher Jake Chapman. The pitching staff will bolstered by the addition of Kyle Hart from Redlands University in California, Adian McVea, an Abbotsford native who played at Butler Community College in Kansas, Ashton Florko from the UBC T-birds, Ryan Patterson, a 6-foot-4 righty who will hit 90 to 92 mph with his fastball, and Evan Bailey, a proven college See Baseball A23

OGC athletes win their respective all-around titles in Delta A pair of Okanagan athletes came out on top at the Delta Invitational artistic gymnastics competition. Jenna Mick and Nicole Pavia of the Okanagan Gymnastics Centre each won their respective all-around titles last weekend. In the Provincial 2 Argo division, Mick finished with a silver on the vault and a bronze on the uneven bars. In Provincial Tyro 4,

Pavia earned gold medals on the vault, uneven bars, and a silver in the floor exercise. In Provincial 1 Argo (born in 2000) Olivia Minor won two gold medals, one on the uneven bars and one on the balance beam. After a strong showing, Minor earned a silver in the all-around. Madison Nethercote won three bronze medals—one on the vault, another on the bars and the

third in the all-around. Nethercote also earned her very first bronze medal the weekend prior in Kamloops, but was unfortunately missed in last week’s report. Selina Habib earned a bronze medal on the balance beam. Provincial 1 Argo (born 2001-2003) was a separate category from the athletes born in 2000. Okanagan Gymnastics top showing in that category was Sally Haaheim

who brought home a silver medal on the balance beam and a second silver medal in the all around in a contingent of 32 athletes. Braelyn Dillon finished with two bronze medals, one on the vault and the second in the all around. Grace Fecht competed in the Provincial 2 Argo (born in 2000) category and earned a bronze medal on the balance beam. Brooke Murray com-

peted in the Provincial 2 Tyro (born in 1998) category and earned herself a gold on the vault. Hannah Butcher had the strongest finish for a Kelowna athlete in the Provincial 3 Tyro category. Butcher finished with a silver medal on the balance beam. In the Provincial 4 tyro category, Emma Morel finished with the bronze in the all around, a silver on the uneven bars, a bronze on the balance beam.

Muriel Stroda finished with a silver medal on the vault. Delta Invitational annually hosts a cash and carry session at their competition where the athletes win sponsorship donations rather than medals. This year Sugar Tiner won the vault and finished with a third in the allaround. Makinli Handley won first place on floor and second place on the balance beam. In the men’s competi-

tion, Liam Dawson earned second place all around in the men’s provincial level 3 (13 and under) division. He also earned a silver medal on the floor, on rings and on parallel bars, and a bronze medal on pommel horse. Stephen Hiscock earned a bronze medal on the floor exercise. Nori Horie competed in the Men’s cash and carry session and was first on vault and second on the floor exercise.

After narrowly missing out on a berth in the championship game, the Kelowna Rambow Mechanical Heat settled for fourth place at the Spring Sizzle Bantam A Girls Fastball Tournament. Bernie Penner’s squad made it as far as the semifinals of the 10-team tournament at High Noon Park in Kelowna before losing a 3-2, 11-inning heartbreaker to the Calgary Rockies. A disheartened Heat crew then dropped a lopsided consolation final to South Delta to fin-

ish fourth, while Calgary went on to win the tournament title. The Heat went 2-1-1 in the round robin, then beat South Surrey White Rock 10-1 in the first game of the playoffs to advance to the semis against Calgary. “I’m proud of the girls, this is our first bantam A tournament and we were one run in extra innings away from being in the final,” said coach Penner, whose Heat made the jump up from the B to A classification this season. “It was a great game and once it goes to extra

innings either team could have won the game,” Penner said. “Give Calgary credit they pulled it out but our girls battled hard to the end. This is Calgary’s number one bantam A team and probably the best bantam A team in Alberta, so the girls did very well.” The Kelowna midget Steelers also competed in the tournament and posted a 1-and-3 record in the round robin. In their first playoff game, the Steelers lost 6-2 to the Calgary Rockies.

▼ SENIOR B

May Days fastball tourney Five teams from across Western Canada will converge on Kelowna this weekend for the Rutland May Days senior B men’s fastball tournament. Traditionally held at Centennial Park, the three-day tourney will be contested this year at King Stadium. The host D.C. Arrows, made up of mostly of players from the Okanagan, will be joined by the Vancouver Meralomas, the defending champion South Hill Giants (Vancouver), Invermere and

the Calgary Rangers. Each team is permitted one A-ball pitcher. The Arrows, who have been assembled by coach Vince Lewis from Vernon, will include Travis and Trent Kunz from Lake Country, Andre and Rene Blanleil, Ryan Volk and T.J. Wyatt from Kelowna, and Colin Ghostkeeper, Jessin Potskin and Danny Fulton from Westbank. “We faced some of the best teams at this level last year and competed pretty well with them,” said Lewis. “We beat the Van-

couver Grey Sox last year, we’ve beaten the Giants in previous years, so we should be right in there this weekend, too.” Action begins at 11 a.m. Saturday and at 9 a.m. on Sunday and Monday. The host Arrows will play their first game against Invermere Saturday at 1 p.m. The championship final is slated for 3 p.m. on Monday. For up-to-date results and details during the event, visit kmmfa.ca.

Owls, Mustangs win valley golf Charlie Lewthwaite and the Kelowna Secondary Owls left the rest of the competition behind on the way to winning the 2010 Okanagan Valley high school senior golf championship. Lewthwaite’s 69 paced KSS to a 286 team total, 31 shots better than second-place Mt. Boucherie. Brandon Ortiz— a Grade 9 call-up from KLO—and Jordan Oelrich each carded 71s for the Owls. Blake Culbert (75) and Dylan Bond (78) were also members of the winning team.

Brett Moore carded the best round of the day among Boucherie players with a 74. The Immaculata Mustangs, led by Brendan Urban (77) and Colin Hasick (78) won the A division title with a 317 score, well ahead of second-place Osoyoos (334). Mickael Lee (80), Nick Lalach (82) and John Mlkotic round out the Immaculata team. Rutland’s Madison Kapchinsky had the lowest round by a female competitor with an 80. Long drive honours

went to Boucherie’s Lee Campbell and Ryan Skinner of Valleyview. Rutland’s Brett McKinnon and Summerland’s Cole Marchant were closest to the pin. The Owls and Bears will join host Salmon Arm at the AAA provincials May 31 to June 2 at Shuswap Lakes. The Mustangs will carry Okanagan colours along with Osoyoos at the A provincials May 30 to June 1 at Gallagher’s Canyon.

Has Gout Affected You? Gout is an extremely painful condition that can effect people of all races and ages. It can effect both men and women but it is more common in men. It is uncommon in children and young adults. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Some people have a genetic predisposition due to a disorder of purine metabolism. In these individuals attacks of gout can be triggered by eating foods high in purines and by consuming high quantities of alcohol. Others can have secondary gout. Secondary gout is associated with another medical condition such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, certain medications, particularly diuretics (water pills), salicylates (aspirin), and niacin. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settlles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Any joint can be involved. Classic signs of gout are pain, redness, and swelling in the big toe or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. A number of therapies are available. Some more successful than others. SciMed Research is starting a research trial to evaluate a new investigational therapy to lower uric acid, the cause of gout. If you have been diagnosed with or suffer from gout symptoms you may qualify to participate in this research trial. Please call SciMed Research to register for a no cost obligation consultation to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this gout study.

Impaired driving penalties have been stiffened Thomson from A24 They may also face criminal charges. Those caught once between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent BAC in a five-year period will face an immediate, threeday driving ban and a $200 fine, with increasing penalties for repeat offenders. Research shows that driving with a BAC in that range means a driver is seven times more likely to be in a fatal crash than if they have no alcohol in their body. Drivers who fail a breathalyzer test, or fall in the “warn range” three times within five years, must participate in the rehabilitative Responsible Driver Program. They must also use an ignition interlock device, which tests a driver’s breath for alcohol every time they operate their vehicle, for one year. Gang activity is unfortunately taking place in all parts of B.C. including Kelowna. As part of the Premier’s seven-point plan to tackle gang violence and guns in B.C., the province now prohibits armoured vehicles without a permit and the after-market installation of hidden compartments in vehicles—another measure to protect public safety for all British Columbians. As well, B.C. became the first province to require a license and criminal record check for the sale and purchase of body armour. Police will have the important ability to seize body armour that is illegally sold or possessed. I support these initiatives as we all work collectively to ensure our communities are safe for our citizens, our children and grandchildren. The safety of British Columbians on our roads in our communities is important to the government. For more information on the measures I mentioned above please visit www.pssg.gov.bc.ca.

Alternator’s WAG fundraiser critical for survival Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

When the AlternatorArt Gallery’s director learned that the ‘Bitch Was Back,’ she had no choice but to move her gallery’s signature event deeper into the summer. Elton John’s return to the city commands a touch of deference but more importantly, explained Jennifer Pickering, putting on the Wearable Art Gala at the same time guaranteed weak attendance—and there’s never been a year when the dollars the event brings in have been more important. “This is a critical event for us…with the cuts to arts funding, it has a monumental importance,” she said. “Money raised will have a real impact on our programming for the upcoming year and it affects how many artists we can

support for exhibitions.” Bracing for gaming funding cuts effective August 2011, they’ve already trimmed back their exhibitions to just a fraction of what was once offered, and that’s not where Pickering and other gallery members want to stay. “We’re hoping that we will have the WAG later, and that will bring more people out, and we can rebuild,” she said. The has been pushed back from July 17 to July 30, and last week put tickets up for sale. The show will feature a line-up of impressive performers. “I believe there are 23 artists, and there are some amazing pieces,” Pickering said. “It’s a lot of fun and you never know what will come up.” The Wearable Art Gala is easily one of the most controversial, tongue in cheek shows in the Valley. The humour can bor-

WEARABLE ARTgala is a successful benefit every year for the Alternator Gallery. der on raunchy, there’s always a chance of nudity, but all that aside, what makes it stand out is that it’s a joyful testament to the talent in the Okanagan, as artists of varying stripes give their best. The WAG has sold out at the Mary Irwin Theatre several years in a row, so this year it’s moving to the much larger Kelowna Community Theatre. The higher volume,

combined with more community participation is something Pickering hopes will give way for a big party where the focus is on the craftsmanship of participants’ entries. It’s also a chance for locals to express, through their dress, their own flair for the dramatic. “We would love to have people dress up in costume, or whatever,” she said, stressing that it’s

not mandatory. “I know one woman who says it’s the only time of year she gets to break out her stilettos in the Okanagan.” And, above all else, there will hopefully be something in the show that sparks conversation, because once practical concerns are peeled back, that’s the core purpose of the Alternator. Take Montreal artist Ji Hee Min’s current display, Once Upon a Camelia Blossom, as an example. From the outside it looks like a bunch of bright flowers. Look a bit closer, and you can see some cartoonish versions of the bits usually covered by underwear, made from underwear material. Dig a bit deeper and learn that the piece was born of Min’s anger over an American Apparel ad campaign that featured a tightsclad Asian woman with

the word “tight” over her head. “It was a playful way of dealing with that anger,” said Pickering. While it may not resonate with everyone, it’s a piece that makes visitors think about the world they live in, in a different way, said Pickering, “That’s the core of what we try to do,” she said. “In mainstream society that’s putting ideals like that forward, those ideas can very easily be ingrained into society and accepted as normal, and it’s the artist’s role to question the world we live in and not just accept the things given to us at face value. If we accepted everything at face value, then we would be living a lie.” To visit the Alternator head to the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

SNL’s movie history

T

his weekend’s two big releases show what influence Saturday Night Live has had on the movie industry. Whether it be stars like Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray (to name only a few) and movies like The Blues Broth ers or Wayne’s World, the 35 years SNL has been around has made the world much funnier. Even Robert Downey Jr. was a cast member for one season. However, it has not been always successful. The show has been close to cancellation a few times over the years and there have been more box office duds than successes with movies based on SNL skits. And although the careers of cast members have generally prospered during and after being on the show, there have been some that have almost completely disappeared. However, this weekend we can celebrate the successes of Saturday Night Live. Shrek Forever After features two comedians who rose to fame on the show. Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy both return as the voices of Shrek and Donkey respectively with Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas returning as Fiona and Puss in Boots. In this story, which is best described as an ogreized It’s a Wonderful Life, Shrek becomes dissatisfied with his domesticated life and yearns for the days of being a scary ogre. He signs a deal with Rumpelstiltskin to have just one day like it was, but discovers the deal is See MoviesA27

Movies from A26 a trick and the one day changes everything in his life. In my opinion, the movie is much better than Shrek the Third and is on par with the second movie, and is definitely one to see in 3-D. A fitting end to the series, but it is not going away completely— expect a Puss in Boots prequel that is set for release late next year. The other movie being released this weekend is based upon a Saturday Night Live skit, which is in itself a spoof of the TV series MacGuyver. MacGruber stars

current SNL regulars Will Forte and Kristen Wiig and like his TV “father” (it was revealed in one skit that MacGuyver was actually his father) he likes to fight crime with his bare hands (and a toothpick), just not as smoothly. When his arch enemy steals a nuclear warhead, he steps up to serve his country. It sounds like it could be another dud, but with names like Val Kilmer and Ryan Phillipe also starring and strong early reviews, this one could be more Wayne’s World than It’s Pat. The cast of MacGruber also includes

wrestlers The Great Khali, Kane, The Big Show, Mark Henry and Chris Jericho, some of whom you can see in the WWE pay-per-view event Over the Limit at the Grand 10 Cinemas on Sunday at 5 p.m. I almost forgot: There’s a little sequel coming out next week called Sex and the City 2.

Feds fall short in park promotion

E

arlier this month, in a sudden fit of generosity, the federal government announced a plan allowing Grade 8 students across the country free access to Canada’s national parks and historic sites. It sounds like a nice idea, but a number of questions spring to mind regarding this latest government initiative—like what about all the students in other grades? All joking aside, there are some very serious questions about the feds introducing such a

measure, with the cost of it topping the list for a cash-strapped government that is already claiming there isn’t enough money in the pot for many programs that aid people. In May, the federal government will be issuing more than 400,000 “My Parks Pass” to Grade 8 students across the country, allowing a year’s free access. Stockwell Day, the MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla, was the lucky politician that got to make

the local announcement. According to the release, he was pleased to be passing on the “exciting” news about the Parks Canada led program, saying it was “a great way for students to connect with Canada’s natural and historical treasures.” The government isn’t handing out any hard figures on the cost of this program. But let’s face it, there is going to be a significant price tag— starting with all the press conferences to announce it, which took

place across the country. Designing, printing and getting those 400,000 passes out to the students isn’t going to be cheap either—then throw in the bureaucracy need to manage the program. All this for just a year’s free access for a small portion of the K-12 student population. We agree getting young people into parks and historic sites is desirable, but suggest that simply opening the doors for all of them would have been less expensive and more inclusive.

Time to ponder power as dry B.C. summer approaches

S

pring runoff is underway with the onset of warm weather across the vast snowpack at B.C.’s higher elevations, and the annual swelling of the river systems has begun. May tends to be the low-water point as snow stops falling and starts to melt, but this year things are ahead of schedule. A mild winter dominated by the El Nino current in the Pacific has the province bracing for what could be another dry summer. The B.C. government has started working on a drought response plan for this year, after the Environment Ministry’s latest survey confirmed snowpack is lower than normal—

everywhere except northern Vancouver Island and the adjacent coastal mountains. It was declining in April and much of it melted between January and March, in a winter that featured snow being trucked south to keep Cypress Bowl operational for the Olympic Games. The Skeena and Nass basins had 81 per cent of normal snowpack a month ago, but that had already shrunk to 61 per cent by May 1. It’s worse in the Southern Interior, with the Nicola, Okanagan, Ket-

tle and Kootenay systems at 75 per cent of normal or lower, and only 37 per cent of normal snow in the Similkameen basin. Many people will Tom likely feel the effects Fletcher of forest fires, water restrictions and drought in ranch country. Less noticeable is the effect on B.C.’s hydroelectric system. According to B.C. Hydro, the fiscal year just ended was another year of net power imports, with 4,600 gigawatt-hours purchased. That makes nine years out of the last 10 when

VICTORIA VIEWS

there were net imports, and this year it appears we will again rely on power from Alberta or the U.S. Both of those are primarily coal sources. The Pacific Northwest is one of a few U.S. regions with substantial hydro assets, notably 31 dams on the Columbia River system run by a federal agency called the Bonneville Power Administration. “Spring snow too little, too late,” says the administration’s latest news bulletin. “BPA warns electricity rates could rise.” The problem here is also snowpack, which the BPA reckons is the fifth lowest since its dams were begun in 1929. B.C. Hydro’s forecast is a bit

rosier, expecting 2010 to be the 12th lowest in the past 51 years. B.C. Hydro’s forecast is brighter in part because the Peace River system, which is less affected by Pacific weather, has 80 to 90 per cent of normal snowpack. This is the backdrop for the debate about proceeding with the Site C dam on the Peace, which the B.C. government intends to be its last big dam. Its capacity would increase the ability of B.C. Hydro to manage a range of intermittent sources, from wind farms to waste wood to run-ofriver power. See Fletcher A29

Vancouver an ‘entertainment epicentre’ while education resources are whittled to the bone A Gift in Memory To the editor: In March, British Columbians learned that the Campbell government is taking $778 million from ICBC reserve funds (starting with $450 million this year) and $294 million from B.C. Hydro for general revenues.

Three weeks later, the CBC headline was: “New Vancouver Casino an ‘Entertainment Epicentre.’ And the cost of the entertainment mega-project involving Paragon Developments in Vancouver? $450 million. One of Paragon’s dir-

ectors, T. Richard Turner, is a major Liberal contributor. “Gift to B.C. Liberals stinks, NDP says: Insider donated $50,000 before his firm got nod to build casino, hotels,” screamed the headline in the Victoria Times Colonist on

April 8. While British Columbians worry about the extra financial burden of the HST to be applied to dozens of basic goods and services, and B.C. school districts are forced to close schools and lay off staff due to a lack of

funds from the province, the Campbell government has authorized the expenditure of $908 million on unnecessary entertainment venue projects in Vancouver. Mike Turner, Kelowna

responsible sportsmen and women. I appreciate you pointing out the monetary contribution they make to conservation . I would suggest a special license fee on those who oppose all hunting and fishing under the misguided cry of saving the environ-

▼ PERSONAL CHOICES

Pro-choice has been distorted by lobby To the editor: If I read one more posturing intellectual letter regarding abortion, pro-choice or antiabortion, it will be too soon. It is time for all of the women—your sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, friends and wives to speak up, stand up, be heard and be counted. I had two abortions, and an ectopic pregnancy amongst the birthing of four amazing children. I made choices during my childbearing years based upon my marital status, my education goals, my income and my emotional preparedness to bear a child. There is not a single decision I regret, mourn, or propelled me into an emotional depression. To the contrary, I was bloody elated and relieved after each abortion and absolutely euphoric after the birthing of each of my children. I was a homebirthing, breastfeeding, homeschooling, stay at home mom who approached parenting as a career of love and joy which consumed my time and my energies. Just because someone is fertile does not make them a good candidate for parenting every time they are pregnant. And dare I say that some people should never make that choice, ever. Let’s be real for a moment, I would never have had more than four children. So which of

the two children I now have in my life would you like me to give up for the two abortions I did have? This is the crux of the issue. This is what choice is about. I am not pro-abortion, I am pro-choice. If birth control were 100 per cent effective (which it wasn’t in my time), no abortions would have been required, but that was not the case. The arguments presented on the anti-abortion side are like Swiss cheese: emotional damage, costs to society, breast cancer risk, clumps of cells equal a human being. Wow, its not as though birthing, pregnancy and child rearing do not have inherent long-term costs to society or physical, emotional and monetary costs to the birthing woman. And frankly a clump of cells with the potential to become a baby is not a baby. The emotional trauma experienced by some women who have had abortions was due to them making the wrong choice for themselves, not an embedded side effect of the procedure. But, to be the devil’s advocate, how emotionally well would these women or their offspring have been if they were forced to have and raise a child they did not want or love, or had to give up a child for adoption due to their circumstances? The research literature is chock full of evidence that women forced into these situations are at great risk psychologic-

ally and their children are equally at risk for emotional and physical damage. Love is a prerequisite to the formation of a healthy human being. Men—and I apologize upfront to those enlightened male souls out there—need to SHUT UP! It is not your life or your body who is made to bear the consequences of your wayward sperm. Truthfully, unless you are married to the woman making a choice, you have no say in the decision, period. Our lives and our bodies are not your chattel. Ladies, a choice, hard fought for in this country, is being insidiously eroded by a minority government that is misguided, misinformed and awash in political secrecy and expediency. Remember what it was like before a safe choice existed and talk to those you love and cherish about your choices. Paula Cryderman, West Kelowna PS: Yes, I want my name attached, that is the point. I want women to come out of the closet on this one. Most of the women I matured with had an abortion at one point and all have children now. Actually, we all have adults now, as I and my cohorts are in our 50s. We are the first wave who used the pill and are the first wave to enter menopause with bioidenticals. At times I feel like an experiment.—PC.

the size. Is there a long-term trend toward warmer, drier weather in B.C.? Pine and spruce beetle outbreaks across the Interior certainly suggests that there is, and so does the northward shift of cedar growth along the coast. What about the increasingly acrimonious debate about greenhouse gas emissions, and their

implications for the cost of fossil fuel power? With or without carbon-trading schemes, North America is looking for cleaner energy and billions are still being bet on electric vehicles. It’s something to ponder this hot summer. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. edit@kelownacapnews.com

City council backs bid to Ukrainian dance ensemble performs host Canada Winter Games Kelowna City Council has received the confidential final bid submission for the 2015 Canada Winter Games this week. At an in-camera meeting, council gave approval for the Kelowna Bid Committee to submit the proposal and send a $10,000 non-refundable cheque to the Canada Games Council.

‘‘

el to the host city. The total economic development is estimated to approach $80 million. “For more than a year, we have been working toward this day when we can submit our final bid proposal, and the one thing I am most proud of is the tremendous community support we have received,” said Reid Oddleifson, City of Kelowna partnership development manager. “Whether we approached sports groups,

arts and cultural groups, businesses, educational institutions, or community based associations, we always received awesome support and encouragement.” In December, Kelowna was announced as one of three finalist communities being considered to host the 2015 Games. Following the submission of the bid, the CGC evaluation committee will visit Kelowna and the host city will be named in October.

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble will celebrate their 11th anniversary with a theatrical dance production Sunday, May 30, 2 p.m., at the Vernon Performing Arts Theatre. This year’s story is called The Golden Tambourine. It is a fairy tale set in Ukraine with the mystical forest nymphs called “Mavky.” Once upon a time, according to folklore, the biggest danger in Ukrainian forests was from woodland nymphs called mavky. Mavky lured their vic-

tims with beautiful songs, then tickled them to death. Sadok’s story begins in the region of Transcarpathia in the southwest flanks of the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine where a young shepherd has lost his sheep and is chasing around the rolling hills looking for them.

an Dance Ensemble is a dance theatre troupe that continually pushes the boundaries of this art form by entertaining and educating their audience about their Ukrainian heritage. For tickets call 250549-7469 or see the website www.ticketseller.ca.

CONTRIBUTED

INFINITI offers its G37 Coupe in a convertible model for 2010.

With a three-piece clamshell retractable hardtop, allowing for a shorter rear overhang and a low trunk lid, the Infiniti G Convertible looks like a coupe with the top up. Drop the roof, which takes about 30 seconds, and you’re treated to fourpassenger open-air motoring in a very comfortable and upscale interior. The 2010 Infiniti G Convertible is available in three models: G37 Convertible Sport (starting at $58,300), G37 Convertible Sport 6MT (with sixspeed manual—starting at $58,300) and G37 Convertible Premier Edition (starting at $61,600). Equipment levels vary, but standard features include heated 8-way power driver/front passenger seats, leather-appointed interior, automatic climate

control and much more. Every 2010 G Convertible comes equipped with a 3.7-litre V6 engine, rated at 325 horsepower and 267 lb/ft of torque.

JAGUAR

For 2010, the exterior styling on the Jaguar XK and XKR Convertibles has been revised, and one of the big stories this year is the big bump in power for both models. Both benefit from Jaguar’s lightweight, but extremely rigid aluminum structure, which when combined with either the 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 (385 hp, 380 lb/ft of torque in the XK) or the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 (510 hp, 461 lb/ft in the XKR), provides an exceptional driving experience. The superb fit of the convertible’s triple-lined fabric roof minimizes wind and road noise, and even comes standard with a luxurious suedecloth See Topless B3

Lexus SC 430 ups ante Topless from B3 The three-piece roof, made primarily of lightweight aluminum, retracts in just 20 seconds and disappears completely from view. Raise the roof, and you have an all-weather coupe. The four-passenger ISC offers low wind noise, minimal turbulence and provides a quiet, comfortable driving experience,

with loads of standard and available amenities. The 2010 IS 350C is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 that delivers 306 hp and 277 lb/ft of torque. It starts at an MSRP of $60,400. The IS 250C gets a 2.5-litre V6 that provides 204 horsepower and 185 lb/ft of torque. Pricing starts at $52,100. The Lexus SC 430 convertible climbs further up the luxury ladder at a

starting price of $82,000. This elegant ride combines swoopy lines, clean body panels and subtle trim with a wide, muscular stanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;making it a head-turner with the top up or down. Under the hood is a 4.3-litre V8 that delivers 288 hp and a solid 317 lb/ft of torque to the rear wheels. Standard safety and handling features include vehicle stability

Mazda introduced the fun-to-drive MX-5 Miata in 1989, and since then has earned the title of best-selling roadster in the world. Now in its third generation, the MX-5 comes in three versions: GX (starting at $28,995), GS (starting at $33,495) and GT (starting at $39,995). Designed as a pure sports car, the MX-5 Miata has a near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, and with its independent front strut/rear multi-link suspension geometry and front engine/rear drive architecture, it provides superb driving dynamics. All Miatas benefit from an all-aluminum, DOHC, 167 hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine. The

base model comes with a soft top, but for those who want the all-weather benefits of a closed coupe, a power retractable hard top is optional on the GS and standard on the GT. The top-end GT also includes a six-speed manual transmission, 17inch alloys, Bose audio system, heated leather seats, smart keyless entry and more. Six-speed manual models also include a limited slip differential, dynamic stability control, and sport suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers.

First is AIRCAP, a wind deflector that greatly reduces interior turbulence and noise. This works hand-inhand with AIRSCARF, M-Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neck-level heating system that wraps the head and neck of both driver and passenger in a See Topless B5

THE MINI Convertible 2010. Like the hardtop version, the MINI Cabrio offers all the charm and go-kart-like driving dynamics of its sibling. CONTRIBUTED

MINI even more fun top down Topless from B6 der (162 hp and 162 lb/ ft of torque), but the real fun comes with the GT-P (starting at $35,998) that gets a 3.8-litre V6, delivering a solid 265 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque. Push the pedal and believe me, it goes. The front passenger cockpit is comfortable and well designed, but there’s not much room for passengers in the rear, where you’ll also find the big eight-inch subwoofer from the Spyder’s 650watt Rockford premium sound system.

NISSAN

Stablemate to the 370Z Coupe, the seductively styled Z Roadster does everything its hardtop sibling does, with the added benefit of open-air driving. Its standard black cloth convertible top features a fabric inner liner, giving it a nicely finished look and contributing to a quieter cabin. The glass rear window has been enlarged and includes an electric defroster. The top opens in about 20 seconds and the automatic latch system secures or releases it without driver intervention. The Z Roadster gets Nissan’s 3.7-litre DOHC

V6 engine with a choice of seven-speed automatic transmission or close-ratio six-speed manual. Power is up from the previous generation, with 332 horses and 270 lb/ft of torque. An available ìSynchroRev Matchî system, a synchronized downshift rev matching manual transmission, essentially ëblips’ the throttle to smooth out up- and downshifts.

PORSCHE

Like Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Porsche has a pile of convertibles, so in the interests of space, we’ll focus on what’s new in the lineup.

Porsche, as a brand, is widely known for building some of the world’s best driving machines— and the seventh-generation 911 Turbo Cabriolet is no exception. At its heart is a new twin-turbo, 3.8-litre flat six that delivers up to 500 hp. When you consider the car’s light 1,645 kg curb weight, the 911 Turbo can rocket from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. And that’s with the six-speed manual. The seven-speed PDK automatic transmission (with manual mode) is slightly quicker. With its rear-engine See Topless B8

The Forester.

So many standard features, The Forester comes loaded with features that no other SUV offers for this price. There’s our famed full-time Symmetrical AWD, standard of course. And a powerful 170HP 2.5L BOXER engine. Did we mention that it’s also a Top Safety Pick?S

other SUV’s aren’t even an option.

ALSO STANDARD: electronic stability control, 6 air bags, Macpherson strut suspension, AC, satellite-ready radio with CD/MP3/WMA and AUX input, power locks/windows, heated exterior mirrors, and a lot more.

configuration and Porsche Traction Management all-wheel-drive, the 911 Turbo offers exceptional handling, and its supercar performance is backed up by a full suite of handling and safety technologies. This car starts at $181,500 for the 2011 model year. For something even more extreme, check out the new 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, priced at $213,000. It is even better equipped than the 911 Turbo and boasts a standard-equipped PDK double-clutch gearbox mated to a higher-boost 530-hp engine. This will take the Turbo S from zero to 100 km/h in only 3.3 seconds, reach 200 km/h in 10.8 seconds to a top speed of 315 km/h. If you don’t have a sixfigure budget, the midengined Boxster Spyder offers open-air driving pleasure at the more modest price of $72,900. This low-slung roadster with a manual soft top is the lightest Porsche model at only 1,275 kg. Powered by a 3.4-litre six-cylinder that delivers 320 hp, and built with a lower centre of gravity and an all-new sports suspension, the Boxster Spyder offers superb driving dynamics. And its ability to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h in as little as 4.8 seconds will not disappoint.

ish little hardtop convertible that does something unexpected. It has a sunroof. This may seem an indulgence, but with the top up, many convertibles, with their dark headliners and smallish rear and side windows, can be low on natural light. The Eos convertible sports a power, folding hardtop that remains airtight and quiet at speed. When you’re in the mood for open-air driving, it stows neatly in the trunk in around 25 seconds. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre turbo four that puts out 200 hp and 207 lb/ft of torque. This front driver gets a six-speed manual transmission as standard, or an optional six-speed automatic gearbox with Tiptronic and sport mode. Pricing starts at $36,575 for the Comfortline trim level and $44,775 for the Highline. You can’t help but smile at the New Beetle Convertible—it just looks fun to drive. And unlike many other small, sporty convertibles, it provides comfortable seating for four. Under the hood is a peppy 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that provides 150 hp and 170 lb/ft of torque. The New Beetle Convertible comes standard with a five-speed manual, or you can opt for a six-speed automatic with Tiptronic and sport mode.

MOTORING

Dodge offers great value for the money in Avenger R/T CONTRIBUTOR

With Chrysler’s new partner Fiat and all the cars it brings, like Alfa Romeo, there is a certain optimism within the organization. There are already several vehicles in Chrysler showrooms that offer great value for the money and one of them is the Dodge Avenger. The current Avenger went on the market five years ago and marked the return of Dodge into the mid-size segment after the absence of a decade. For 2010, Dodge has simplified the lineup that still has three trim levels but does away with the 2.7-litre Flex Fuel V6. With virtually no ethanol filling stations in the county, it didn’t make sense to keep it. The entry level SE and

mid-level SXT both use the 2.4-litre four-cylinder “world engine” that was designed to be powerful and fuel thrifty at the same time. With 173 hp and 166 lb/ft of torque, consumption is listed at 9.7L/100 km (29 mpg) city and 6.6L/100 km (43 mpg) highway. The SE comes with air conditioning, cruise control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power locks/ windows and keyless entry and front seat and side curtain airbags. The SXT is seen by Dodge as its volume seller and, like the SE, is equipped with a fourspeed automatic transmission. It is extensively fitted out with four-wheel disc brakes and ABS, power eight-way driver’s seat, 17-inch wheels and what I think is a breakthrough, the YES Essen-

tial seating fabric which is stain, moisture, fade and microbial resistant. Tested here is the topline R/T that starts life as a SXT ($24,795). The big-ticket option ($2,225) is the 3.5-litre V6 producing 235 hp and 232 lb/ ft of torque through a sixspeed Auto/Stick transmission (that adds $275) with sequential manual shift mode. Fuel consumption is rated at 12.9L/100 km (22 mpg) city and 7.4L/100 km (38 mpg) highway. The R/T, like the SE and SXT is front-drive only. All-wheel-drive was an option in the past but it has been dropped. That price for the R/T engine option also includes 19 amenities some of which are heated, leather front bucket seats, trunk lid spoiler, sport suspension with fore and aft sta-

bilizer bards and “Firm Feel” power steering. Other options fitted to this car included $525 for electronic stability control and $750 for the Media Centre/infotainment system with 30 Gig hard drive (enough to hold 6,700 songs) with 6.5-inch touch screen monitor. Including other options like the $500 18-inch aluminum-clad wheels and the $1,400 destination fee, the bottom line was $31,435. One nifty feature is a four-can pop cooler they call the Chill Zone in a slot above the glove box. Vents coming from the air conditioner cool it. While the 2010 Avenger is only about halfan-inch longer than the last generation Sebring (on which the Avenger is based), it is a full four inches taller and that

DODGE continues to have a strong presence in the mid-size sedan segment with the 2010 Avenger (R/T shown) that features signature design cues like the crosshair grille and a more sporting stance than the similar Chrysler Sebring. means a noticeably larger interior.
