Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Times may be tough for the airline industry these days but try telling that to the folks who run Kelowna’s airport. Despite news of airline bankruptcies, dwindling passenger numbers at airports elsewhere and consumer frustration with airline add-on fees for everything from bags to inflight meals, blankets and pillows, Kelowna’s airport is not only defying the odds by seeing its passenger numbers rise, it has embarked on a multi-year, $50.4 million upgrade to handle the growth. Over the next four years, the airport will not only upgrade existing terminal and air-side facilities, it will add space in areas like the international arrivals section as it prepares to handle 1.6 million passengers per year. And looking long term, the plan is to double the size of the existing 76,000-square-foot terminal by 2025. See story A3

CLOSE-UP ▼ YLW

Kelowna’s airport bucks the trend with its growth Airport from A1 “In this business you have to grow your facilities just in time and that’s often difficult to do,” said Sam Samaddar, airport director. The airport currently handles just under 1.4 million passengers per year, making it the ninth busiest airport in the country. Last August, the airport set a record for its busiest month ever with just under 132,000 passengers flying in and out. In December, the number was only slightly lower, setting a record that month. With 60 daily flights to and from B.C., Canadian and U.S. cities, the airport, which markets itself under its airport identification code YLW, bills itself as “your link to the world.” It has direct flights to and from major U.S. cities such as Seattle, Phoenix and Las Vegas, as well as Mexican holiday spots and major Canadian cities like Vancouver, Calgary Edmonton and Toronto. With one connection, it says, air travellers leaving Kelowna can be virtually anywhere in the world. And the same applies in reverse, especially as Kelowna, and the entire Thompson-Okanagan region, markets itself aggressively to the rest of world. And it’s that growth that is being addressed with the current expansion plans. But that growth comes with a cost. Unlike larger airports that are run by airport au-

thorities—basically private corporations—or small to mid-size airports, many of which are subsidized by the municipalities that own them, Kelowna is different. While owned and operated by the City of Kelowna, the airport is financially selfsupporting. Work, such as the current $11-million first phase of the expansion and upgrade project —which includes construction of a new international arrivals area and a multi-million dollar repaving of the runway— is being paid for by funds the airport itself generates. One of its largest revenue sources is the airport improvement fee, charged to every passenger leaving the airport. The fee which started at $5 in the 1990s, has risen steadily over the years to the current rate of $12. It is slated to jump to $15 next year. The fee was introduced to pay for the last major, multi-phase upgrade of the airport, which started in 1998 and cost $20 million. That work doubled the size of the terminal, expanded its parking and upgraded several areas of the air-side operation, particularly the aircraft parking apron. It also provided covered access between the planes and the terminal. Since then, the runway has been lengthened to 8,900 feet, making it capable of handling larger jets and paving the way to one day accepting flights from Europe. But while Samaddar

admits European flights are still a long way off because Kelowna just does not have the passenger volume to support it at this time, he recognizes that need for the longer runway will be there in future. “The driving factor for us is passenger growth,” he says. ••• Kelowna’s airport has come a long way since it opened in 1947 with a small terminal building and grass landing strip just 3,000 feet long. The opening came just a year after a plebiscite in 1946 passed by a slim sixvote majority allowing the city to buy land in the Ellison area north of Kelowna for an airport. The council of the day paid $20,000 for 320-acres to create what would be known as Ellison Field. And as today, the following years saw upgrade after upgrade, first with the gravelling of the landing strip in the 1950s along with paving the parking lot and building an aircraft apron. The introduction of daily, scheduled air service to Vancouver in 1958 paved the way for negotiations between the city and the federal government for paving and lengthening the air strip to 5,350 feet in 1960. Recognizing the growing economic impact of the airport, money was raised in the community to build a new terminal building in the late 1960s, a structure that is still used as the core of the current

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

AIRPORT DIRECTOR Sam Samaddar says the new international arrivals hall, currently under construction, will greatly relieve the congestion in the airport when multiple flights arrive at the same time. terminal that has grown around it. In the early 1970s, an air traffic control tower was added to the terminal building. Prior to that, air traffic controllers worked out of a makeshift structure located on the back of a flatbed truck. The permanent tower would be replaced in the late 1990s with a new one, paid for by the federal government and NavCanada and located on the east side of the airport property. During the 1980s and 1990s, the airport saw more investment to upgrade the terminal, run-

way and airline operating facilities as passenger and cargo volumes continued to grow. It also saw the arrival of many aviation-related businesses at the airport. Companies like Kelowna Flightcraft have developed a world-wide reputation for aircraft maintenance work and are one of an estimated 118 companies, located both on and off airport property, that have a direct impact on the economic success of YLW. A study two years ago pegged YLW’s economic impact to the provincial

economy at $610 million. A total of 1,400 people are employed in jobs directly associated with the airport, a figure that represents 1,290 person years of employment. Seventy million dollars in wages are generated and another 640 jobs are indirectly related to the airport’s operations. “There’s no question the airport is an economic engine not only for Kelowna but for all the communities we serve,” said Samaddar. By the late 1990s, passenger numbers at Kelowna’s airport had risen to

around 800,000, making it one of the fastest growing airports in the country. To prepare for what its officials thought would be one million passengers by 2011, the airport brought in its airport improvement fee and embarked on a $20-million expansion that doubled the size of the terminal. According to Samaddar, not only was that original vote key to the success of the airport today, so was the extension of the runway to 5,350 feet. See Airport A4

is being done in phases to accommodate passenger number and growth. According to the plan, the work is being done in such a way that if the expected two per cent per year growth is not realized, the next phase can be put on hold. But with the way the numbers are going, the expectation is that by 2015, YLW will be handling in excess of 1.6 million passengers a year, further solidifying its position as one of the top 10 busiest airports in the country. The first phase of the latest work is slated to be complete this fall, with the second phase, that includes further terminal upgrades, as well as improvement to baggage handling and air-side operations, to be complete in the fall of 2013. Before embarking on the project, the airport spent $9 million expanding and reconfiguring its parking and improving the intersection of Highway 97 and Airport Way.

As part of the first phase of work, the airport received $900,000 in federal grant money to help reduce its emission of greenhouse gases through innovative design work in the new international arrivals area replacing back up generators, and using energy-saving motion detectors to control lighting.

‘‘

WE KNOW THAT THE MAJORITY OF OUR GROWTH (IN THE SHORT TO MEDIUM TERM) WILL BE ON THE DOMESTIC SIDE Sam Samaddar

But the work will not stop in 2015 when the airport hits its target of 1.6 million passengers. A master plan for the facility shows another doubling of the size of the

terminal by 2025, by adding a new, separate domestic arrivals and departure area at the south end of the existing building. That work is not part of the current project but will expand the airport both physically and capacity-wise even further. “We know that the majority of our growth (in the short to medium term) will be on the domestic side,” said Samaddar, noting the airport has become now a regional facility, servicing the travel needs of residents not just in the Okanagan but also the Kootenays and the Thompson-Shuswap. While Kamloops and Penticton have smaller airports of their own, over the years, they have seen reductions in service while Kelowna has continued to grow. As a result, residents from those areas are using YLW much more. So it would appear that for now, for Kelowna International Airport, the sky really is the limit. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Cops apologize for parking The Kelowna RCMP is apologizing after one of its officers parked in a spot reserved for a person with a disability. “This was an error in judgement on the part of our member and we would like an opportunity to apologize directly to the person that brought this to

our attention,” said Supt. McKinnon. He said police have yet to speak with the woman about the incident. The officer was responding to a call at Orchard Park Mall Feb. 17, about a shoplifter. A young female suspect was arrested.

But McKinnon said after a review he determined that the circumstances did not meet the exemptions under the Motor Vehicle Act for the officer to use the reserved parking space. He said the officer will be issued a ticket for the parking infraction.

Premier finds a friendly audience in Chamber of Commerce Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

If there was any doubt about Premier Christy Clark’s popularity in Kelowna, her appearance in front of a chamber of commerce audience put it to rest. A Thursday afternoon speech that pumped up the attributes of her “prudent” government and its recent budget, was repeatedly interrupted with cheers and applause from the business-minded crowd. As it concluded and Clark stepped off the podium, bellows of support and the uncommon sight of a 300-plus person standing ovation followed.

It’s not that there’s been much doubt over the strength of her party in this region. The provincial Liberals and their ilk have locked down the Okanagan for ages, regardless of their standing elsewhere in the province. And Clark’s values line up perfectly with those engaged in an economy largely reliant on small business, which was clear when she called Kelowna “the heart of free enterprise.” When she talked about her government’s decision to get out of the way of business, so it could get on with its own business, the crowd all but swooned. “When my govern-

ment has a choice between lowering taxes and increasing spending, we are going to lower taxes,” she said to applause. “I will not raise taxes on families to fund pay hikes for public sector unions.” Clark highlighted tax breaks in the new budget, including a children’s fitness and tax credit of up to $500 per child annually. It was set to complement a similar federal tax credit. She also made references to concerns about the shrinking middle class, most loudly voiced by those in the global Occupy movement. “You don’t grow the middle class by pitching a

tent,” she said. It’s done by enabling the private sector to create jobs and by keeping taxes low, she added. Clark pointed out that governments in Greece, Britain and the U.S. drove up debt, spent bucketloads and raised taxes just as the NDP did in B.C. in the 1990s. And the result for all was the same—financial chaos. “We’re not putting mountains of debt on our children and grandchildren to pay back,” she said. She ended by pointing out that her family-first mantra stands, and that family is the most important institution in the country.

would take precedence until next Thursday unless there is an emergency situation. The BCTF had proposed a three-year contract that would see teachers given a 15 per cent increase over that span. BCTF estimates the contract will cost an extra $300 million per year, however BCPSEA pegs that number at upwards of $500 million in the first year alone. Abbott wouldn’t give specifics about the terms of the teacher contract he plans to impose, but said it would conform to the Liberal government’s net-zero mandate of no wage increases for public sector employees. “We have three-quarters of public employees, with 100-plus contracts negotiated with the

net zero mandate,” Abbott said. “We have to proceed on that basis.” Abbott said he was disappointed and saddened to impose the contract, but said he felt he had no other option. “Teachers will be upset, but in some cases they will be relieved,” he said. “The union leadership will take a dim view of it, but I will not let a dispute among adults affect kids.” Teachers across the province have been doing essential services only since September, refusing to meet with school administration or complete report cards. Teachers have been without a contract since June 2011. (See related story on page A9.)

When asked how the meeting went, Letnick said, “From what I understand, it was par for the course. “We had a few people providing questions on housing, but we also had some questions on highways and schools.” Wednesday’s Twitter town hall meeting was focused on the issue of housing; however, Letnick is hoping to make the topic of future online meetings more general. “They’ll (be) wide open for my constituents to decide what topics they want to approach me with, tcomment on or provide input to government on.” He’s also going to alter the time that the meeting occurs. “I’m going to take from this experience and build it up. I’m planning to change the time of day.

I can’t promise the same quick turnaround time, (but) I’ll check every day or so for any questions.” Letnick said that once he knows the date of his next Twitter Town Hall meeting, he’ll “send out a tweet and let everybody know.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com.

Air rifles prompt RCMP concern

Two Okanagan men may be done with dressing in camouflage and playing with fake guns, following an episode where they unwittingly became the centrepiece of a massive police chase. Mounties received a report that two men

wearing camouflage gear had just jumped out of a vehicle carrying semiautomatic weapons shortly after 3 p.m., Wednesday. “The two men took off on foot into the bush near Hollywood Road North and Lougheed Road,” said

RCMP Const. Kris Clark. “Police responded in force, including the RCMP helicopter Air 3 and police service dog. The two Kelowna men, both in their mid-20s, were quickly arrested but their firearms were found to be air guns.”

From afar, said Clark, the rifles look authentic and only upon close examination can you see that they are not. The men were released without charges but the guns were seized pending the outcome of an investigation.

Clark says legislated deal for teachers was the only option rKathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A legislated contract for B.C. teachers was the only way forward, said Premier Christy Clark following a speaking engagement in Kelowna. “This isn’t a situation that anyone wanted. (Education Minister) George Abbott worked hard, he negotiated in good faith

and he was extremely patient,” Clark said, following news that Abbott had asked his staff to work through the weekend preparing back-to-work legislation aimed at ending a labour dispute. “There were 75 meetings and no movement on a $2-billion request for wage increases—that’s not good enough. We’re in a tough economic en-

vironment and I’m not going to tax payers to ask for more money to give teachers a raise.” Clark went on to point out that when teachers refused to budge on the wage increase issue, it stalled negotiations in other areas of the contract, leaving back-to-work legislation the only option. “I think parents and students are fed up with

this,” she said, noting students need their report cards. “I don’t feel like it’s serving the people we all care about the most, students, very well.” Teachers across the province have been taking part in ongoing job action since September, when contract talks between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the province’s

bargaining agent, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, broke down last summer. As part of the job action, they have only provided essential teaching services and have refused to prepare report cards or

To the editor: Ron Cannan provided his MP’s Report in your Feb 21 Capital News (Protecting Benefit for Seniors for our Future Generations), and I have to wonder if Prime Minister Harper has asked his “troops” to prepare us for the soon to be delivered federal budget. Much like the B.C. Liberals and the HST debacle, the federal Conservatives are in some trouble thanks to: • their boss telling European bankers about their Canadian Pension plans before having the decency to tell us • the recent Canadian Taxpayers Association release about the level of pensions being collected by M.P.s just like Mr. Cannan, thanks to us, the Canadian workers and taxpayers • and now of course there is some dispute over whether or not there is any need to change anything in the existing Canadian Pension Benefits package.

my Beanie’s whole head in a failed attempted assassination. The poor dog was soundly beaten in front of us, which was completely dissatisfying and alarming—more of the former, afterwards, as I mentally revisited the scene while forking out the cash for stitches and antibiotics. What may have soothed my raging spirit would have been a memory of smacking around the owner, inflicting on them the stress, expense and pain caused by their stupidity. The thing I realized as I worked through an internal temper tantrum, was that I couldn’t hold the greyhound accountable. It didn’t act with malice. I don’t think that it was abused, or poorly trained, either. But where the owners did fall short is their inability to account for the nature of their animal, which is what seems to happen in every situation where a child or other dog is bitten. People are supposed to be smarter than their pets, which means they should have the control. And that doesn’t mean a dog heals

when it’s told or rolls over on command. It’s irrelevant if it likes to cuddle after a long run or as you read a book. It means if there is an unknown element in a situation, it doesn’t impact your dog. Keep it on a leash, in a fenced yard, and generally out of harm’s way. If it needs to be muzzled, then do it. If there are kids around, tell them how to play with the dog or, better yet, don’t allow them to be with a potentially dangerous dog—regardless of the breed—unsupervised. And, if the worst happens, it’s time that there’s a related punishment for the human in the situation. I know my public-flogging fantasy will be poohpoohed, but something more substantial than a fine should await those who cause harm with their pets. It would weed out the bad pet owners, and put an end to these tragic tales. Kathy Michaels is a reporter with the Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

LETTERS

Teachers MPs share characteristics To the editor: Here’s The Problem: When I see the ads that are being run by the teachers of B.C., I think they were written by one of our MPs. They go on to say how hard they work and how much time they put in along with the spending of their own money in order to facilitate the jobs they are required to do for their students, not to mention that they only work for nine months of the year and make a wage that others envy for that amount of time put in. Granted, they do spend time educating themselves in order to qualify to be a teacher but they should know what it requires before applying for that position and what is expected of them. r When their union

heads make a demand like seven paid days off if even an acquaintance dies, it is ludicrous, but I guess you have to have something you can barter away when you come to the table, even if it diminishes your integrity in the bargaining process. Maybe it is time to stop taking the adversarial approach and look at how each can work together to come out with a win, win situation for both sides, or better yet have some of these unions sit on the board of directors so when the establishment says there is no money available at this time they know there is no money available in these leaner economic times, and not that it is just a bottomless pit because it comes from the taxpayers.

Granted teachers are an important part of our children’s future and there is nothing else that will prepare them for their future like a good education. We constantly hear, “We are doing this for our students,” but at the end of the day it is not the student that will be getting that raise or benefits and when classes resume not much will have changed in the way teachers teach, only that it has cost everyone else more because that money has to come from somewhere. Look what takes place when you do settle for about what was first offered after possibly months of anxiety of going on strike. You get a minor increase, then the retailers, grocery stores and restaurants raise their

prices and the government either adds another tax or user fees because you received a raise. Also the union says: Look what we did for you so now we will raise your union dues. What happened to that raise? You are probably making less than you were due to being in a higher tax bracket with increased costs. Not only that, you now have lessened the buying power of people on fixed incomes where the government thinks $1.50 for the month is a generous increase for them. We cannot keep going on like this as one union always tries to trump the other so therefore no one wins in the end with constantly rising costs and the dollar loses its value and

buying power. At one time the unions were desperately needed in order to get the working person a fair and equitable contract but times have changed and it seem as if the thinking of the unions is still one of an adversarial attitude. Here’s the solution. Being as you are qualified with the required degrees and are used to spending so much extra time at your calling, you should run for an MP’s office so you can receive a 20 per cent to 50 per cent raise, voted in by yourselves, a gold-plated pension and still work only about nine months of the year. John D. Grant, Kelowna

▼ BARNES AVENUE

OCP is being ignored To the editor: Please vote no to the proposed rezoning of the Barnes Avenue field. What legitimate reason does the city have to tchange the Official Community Plan—which was paid for, developed and implemented with the long range goals of the community in mind— when it will obviously negatively impact the lifestyle and community environment of the surrounding residents? What ethical reason does the city have for withholding purchase and traffic reports from the residents who oppose the rezoning so we are not able to review the data or challenge the findings?

How can a traffic survey undertaken in the summer when school is not in session, provide an accurate representation of traffic volume and patterns? If this proposed amendment passes, it simply negates the purpose of the OCP in the first place. This means that any developer can purchase a piece of property and then pursue rezoning. If one is allowed to do this, then all could justifiably be allowed. And, if the city changes the zoning when there isn’t a sound reason to do so, why shouldn’t everyone be able to get rezoning? The result would be

that developers would probably cease entirely to consult the OCP before making a purchase because it no longer has any value. This process would simply waste a lot of extra time and cost the city a lot of money. I simply do not think this method of operation, resulting costs to the taxpayers and deviation willy nilly from the OCP is a responsible avenue to take. Please take note of the strong objections of the residents who live in the surrounding area. We want to keep our neighborhood the way the city promised it would be. Colleen Dickson, Kelowna

MP pension review will be kept behind closed doors Pensions from A10 some interesting points— the declining number of Canadians who support the Pension Fund, the fact that we are living longer and therefore the growing reliance on the Pension Fund. While I might be agreeable to some changes in the formulas used to fund the future pension liability, I would first and most definitely like to see Mr. Cannan and the rest of our elected officials stop taking advantage of the

Canadian taxpayer with their gold-plated pension plan. I understand that for every single dollar our MPs put into their pension plan, we, the Canadian taxpayer, add $23—that to me is unconscionable. Mr. Cannan suggests “they” are reviewing their pensions and benefits. Of course, that review is being held behind closed doors, so we the people funding their obscene benefits package will never know what’s discussed, how much of a laugh they’ve

had, and what has been done because I have little doubt that we will ever see the results. Mr. Cannan also provided some figures re the Old Age Security and I have to wonder how many pensioners receive (or exceed) the $69,652 level after which OAS is gradually reduced—oh wait, yes, those would be retired Members of Parliament.

they’ve been drawing more, noticing shadows, shapes and angles. I can’t say this has been the case for me, but I certainly do think a creative endeavour tends to give you a new eye on life. For the first few years of writing, I definitely saw the world around me in stories. It took a conscious effort to stop sourcing everything as potential muse. Really great journalists apparently never separate themselves like this, so I’m sure my friends and family were quite pleased when I fell into the routine grip of mediocrity. Seeing the world in pictures sounds far less threatening, though it does add a certain Shakespearean macabre as the world becomes a series of dark and light props intermingling with the grey tones. From a personal point of view, I think learning to trust one’s own artistic spirit has been well worth it’s weight in gold. After several years of storing my empty picture

charcoal, have a secret way of scaring adults. Sure we act as though it’s the second-class citizen to a pen or paint, but really, there’s a certain foreboding feeling to knowing that with this pencil people will know what you’re trying to create. Look at a Jackson Pollock and there’s a squeak of a hope that this is a reproducible art form or that there’s a lot more room for give and take. A really impressive, accurate drawing, though, feels pretty out of reach if you haven’t done more than a doodle in years. Now, five classes into my first drawing lessons, it’s pretty shocking how much we’ve managed to learn, I must admit. By turning the paper upside down (concentrating on the shapes rather than the image) to noticing the negative space behind an object and difference in colour tone, almost anyone can learn to draw an accurate representation. And none of us ever seem to produce an image quite the same. I think this is the really cool thing about drawing. It gives you an eye on another person’s point of view. So with this in mind, I’ll be spending the next week trying to find an image I feel I can reproduce. For our last class we’re apparently going to draw something we bring in, like a photograph or magazine clipping. It sounds a little far fetched to me, but hey, so did drawing the cheesegrater when I started yesterday. Jennifer Smith is a Capital News reporter, taking a drawing class with the Kelowna Art Gallery and documenting the experience.

Marilyn Gail Ann Donnelly The death of Marilyn Donnelly occurred on Friday, February 17, 2012 by accident in the Black Mountain area of Kelowna where she was visiting family. She is survived by her husband Fred Donnelly of Rothesay, New Brunswick and Professor of History at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John, her children Sandra (Stephen Tobias) of Saint John, NB and James (Julie) of Kelowna and her four grandchildren; William, Alexander, Sarah and Miles.

She and her husband had been residents of Sheffield and Edmonton before moving to New Brunswick. A resident of Rothesay, NB since 1979; Marilyn worked for several years in the area’s school libraries and in the medical library of the Saint John Region Hospital. A volunteer for many organizations including Scouts Canada and Read Saint John as an adult literacy mentor, at the time of her unfortunate death she was volunteering as archivist for the Saint John Theatre Company. She was an accomplished painter and photographer and some of her travel photographs had been published in national media.

Relationships can be tricky business

T

here seems to be as many different perspectives towards Valentine’s Day as there are people. To a romantic, it is a day where people express their love in the most perfect and thoughtful ways. To a cynic, it is a day where single people think their life has no value as they bitterly watch couples whose relationship is dependent on the number of chocolates exchanged within the magical 24 hours. To a preteen, Valentine’s Day is the most exciting day of the year. This year it was a fairly emotionally neutral day for me, but despite my natural tendency towards cynicism, part of me missed the excitement that used to surround Valentine’s Day for me. When I was 13, the

CONNECTING WITH YOUTH

Amber Krogel candygrams I received were enough to outshine Christmas and my birthday combined. But like most preteens, the so-called relationships I had were based on nothing more than instant messaging and passing notes in class, so naturally, they tended to dissolve after a couple weeks. While many people can look back on the relationships they had in middle school with enough maturity to realize there are better ways to get to know someone, others

carry the preteen mindset towards dating throughout high school and even further on in life. The problem is that a consistently shallow approach to relationships tends to be incompatible with growing, changing, and increasingly complex teenagers. While I am in no way a relationship counselor, I have seen many of my friends become devastated after breaking up with their boyfriend or girlfriend, and often, this is because they never knew them well enough in the first place. The messiest breakups I have seen have typically between two people who were completely incompatible from the start – maybe aside from their evenly matched good looks – but completely threw themselves into the

relationship after a few conversations on Facebook chat. Sometimes people begin well-suited for each other, but because we change so much in our teenage years, they become too different in character for the relationship to work. This happens with friendships, too. You may be lucky enough to have had the same best friend since you were little, but there are usually people you see around your school for whom a quick wave has become more appropriate than the long talks you used to have, and that’s not a bad thing. As time goes on and we experience more of life, we are changed by those experiences, often in ways that make it hard to relate to people we were previously friends with. The experience heading my way in less than four months is graduation, and I’m preparing myself for the way my friendships will change as everyone goes their separate ways. While I work hard at not basing my significance on relationships, I’m learning the importance of significant relationships. And I’m guessing that the friendships that will continue will be with the people I’ve done more than text and pass notes with.

Council’s change of heart on bus routes is welcomed

S

oon after taking the oath of office (a very neat and somewhat overwhelming experience), Kelowna city council members decided to hack away various routes and services on the local transit system. The majority of cuts directly affected students, seniors, or those with accessibility issues. Despite protests by riders and the concerns of others with insight on the specific bus runs, council moved ahead with the decision to clip and trim. Now after a month or more of loud protests and gnashing of teeth it seems council has rethought their plans and are backing off on some of the route changes. I’m glad to see that correction taking place, but I must ask, (with tongue in cheek) does such reconsideration by council mean they have actually realized the errors and corrected them – or were they simply being indecisive? Maybe council should have a taken more time before making its decision? ••• In another couple of weeks all the municipal candidates will have turned in their election expense forms. It should be enlightening to see who spent what with how much. Apparently, ForChange.org spent only $30,000 on all its advertising. Or is that a typo and someone simply forgot a zero? It will be interesting when all the financial bottom lines hit the public table. I am anticipating new and heated debates about various possible changes to the municipal election rules after all the dust has been shaken out of the various province-wide municipal elections. It seems there are a

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge couple of other communities in B.C. miffed by the election process. I anticipate there will be a debate on financial caps for election expenses and contributions, fuller disclosure of contributions, possible release of financial contributors prior to the actual election date, a change in the number of nomination signatures needed and an entry fee increase for candidates. (Editor’s note: Charlie Hodge is a former Kelowna city councillor and was one of four incumbents running for reelection in November’s civic election targeted by Four Change.org.) ••• So, now that the hohum NHL All-Star game is a piece of history, the real hockey season can begin—the final three months of the hockey season when the remaining regular season games take on a playoff-like appeal. In addition, with Monday’s NHL trade deadline looming all the recent discussion has been about which team needs what, and how much will they give up to get what they need? As usual, this time of the year, the only other questions on Canadian hockey fan’s minds is how many Canadian based teams will enter the extra season, and do any of them have a snowball’s chance in Hell of making it to the final? The answer is Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa will sneak into the extra session. Winnipeg will miss out during the final few days of the season as

will Calgary. Of the three teams qualifying for the playoffs, only Vancouver will survive the first round of action. In fact, Vancouver will go all the way this year. The only club likely to stop them from getting out of the Western Conference and into the Stanley Cup final is the powerful (as always) Detroit Red Wings.

‘‘

THE MAJORITY OF CUTS DIRECTLY AFFECTED STUDENTS, SENIORS, OR THOSE WITH ACCESSIBILITY ISSUES.

I am calling either a rematch of the Boston-Vancouver Cup bat-

tle from last year or a Vancouver-New York Rangers final. Certainly Pittsburgh and Philadelphia look strong but Philly’s goaltending is inconsistent and Pittsburgh is largely too reliant on Fleury in goal and Malkin up front. If one of them goes down for any length of time, the team will go with them. If you are a betting hockey fan, I would not place any money on the table until after Monday’s trade festival is through and the fate of a couple of players has been decided. Number one on the watch list is Rick Nash, currently with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The super sniper is a power forward winger who can literally dominate a game. There’s no question that whatever team picks him up will instantly become a better club and

n the whole history of mankind, the prevalence of diabetes has never been as high as it is now. What has caused this? The most important reason is a dramatic change in our food pattern. Pre-historic man had to either hunt for his food or grow it. A lot of energy was spent doing this. There were periods of starvation between meals. However, the physiology of our body was well adapted to cope with starvation, as energy could be stored in our liver and fat tissue. Indeed, it even seems that our bodies need some time without food between meals to ensure a proper balance between energy supply, expenditure and storage. Contrast this picture with what is happening today. The only exertion required to obtain food now is to get in the car and drive to the nearest fast food restaurant. You can even save that little bit of effort by calling for a home delivery. Nobody stays even slightly hungry for very long. It is no wonder that the delicate physiological balance of food metabolism has been disrupted, which over time has led to the rising prevalence of diabetes. Therefore the first step to take when you have diabetes is not to start the latest medication straight away, but to review what you eat and how much you eat. I would say that this is the most important step in controlling your diabetes. In his last article, Dr. Farquhar mentioned some of the important diet

YOUR CHILDREN’S ORAL HEALTH

Alan Milnes & Terry Farquhar modifications required for a healthy diet which are worth repeating: Increase fiber and vegetables in your diet and cut down on salt, saturated fat and red meat. The amount and type of carbohydrate needs to be assessed carefully. Portion size is also important. Compared to the rest of the world, food in North America is high in sugar and sodium, so make sure you read the food labels when shopping. Vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, carrots and peppers, are high in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants and should be a part of every balanced diet. Unhealthy food is often thought to be much tastier than healthy food, but this is not true. With a little bit of imagination and experimentation in the kitchen, wonderfully tasty food can be made that is also extremely healthy. However, it does require a willingness to try new things and move away from past food habits. Changing life habits is not easy, but in the long run you will feel the difference as there are many medical benefits. These include a lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, a lower risk See Diabetes A17

The benefits of choosing rose-coloured glasses

C

hoosing to focus on the positive aspects of life can seem very difficult when we are constantly faced with challenging situations. What also makes this particularly difficult is that as human beings, our brains are actually hard wired to focus on the negative aspects of life due to our instinctual survival mechanisms. For example, let’s say you are hiking up a mountain on a beautiful sunny summer day. There are beautiful flowers on one side of the path and a snake on the other side. Which one do you think you would be focused on? Of course, you will naturally notice the snake as it is a potential threat. Your brain is hard wired for protection and is constantly scouring your environment to ensure your safety. And equally if you are paid twenty compliments but someone mentions one criticism you will remember the lone criti-

EMOTIONAL RESCUE

Annie Hopper cism. Detecting negativity is just the way the brain works by default. So if we are naturally hard wired to focus on the negative then it makes common sense that it may take some concerted effort on our behalf to focus on the positive aspects of life. However, this does not mean living a life in denial. It’s perfectly OK to allow yourself to process emotionally challenging situations. Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a renowned neuroscientist and best-selling author who had to rebuild her brain after a stroke, came up with the 90-second rule. Allow yourself 90 seconds to dive into your emotional suffering. Rant, rage, cry or jour-

nal to move the energy through you, and then move on and focus on something that is life affirming. Of course each situation is different and may take numerous attempts to clear. Normally it only takes 90 seconds for stress hormones to regulate after we experience a negative feeling. However, if we continue to entertain the same thoughts that are stimulating the same emotions, then we get stuck in the same physiological negative response cycle like a hamster on a wheel. If we stay in a particular negative thought or emotional state for too long, the brain strengthens the corresponding neural circuits, and this has very real adverse effects on our physiology and state of health. In a recent brain study of teenage girls that were prone to depression, researchers from Stanford University discovered that the amygdala—a part of the limbic system that

fires when feeling threatened—was over reactive which caused the subjects to be more sensitive to various negative stimuli. Through use of a functional magnetic resonance machine to measure brain function along with mindfulness training, they were able to demonstrate to the subjects how to change brain function.

‘‘

DETECTING NEGATIVITY IS JUST THE WAY THE BRAIN WORKS BY DEFAULT.

When experiencing a hyper reactive negative state, the subjects were asked to visualize an emotionally charged positive memory, like petting a puppy. This effectively dampened the threat response in the brain which had real physical affects on

the physiology of the body. The intent of the research is to prevent depressive episodes though giving the girls the tools that they need to rewire the depressive circuits in the brain. What was equally surprising is that they noticed that many of the subjects were able to make changes in brain structure and function in less than one week. The personal commitment to consciously notice the positive aspects of life requires us to become aware of our natural default state and consciously shift our focus. The commitment to this practice can be a daily, hourly and moment by moment discipline. However, improving your brain function, overall quality of life, your health and personal level of happiness makes it all worth the effort. Annie Hopper is a limbic system rehabilitation specialist.

Star pick ‘pretty cool’ Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

When Kelowna midget hockey player Parker Bowles entered the Tri-City Americans dressing room following his first ever Western Hockey League game this week, he wasn’t quite prepared for what came next. This was Tuesday night, and Bowles, 16, had just skated with the Americans as an affiliate player in a 7-2 win over Everertt. And he didn’t just play. He skated with the Americans’ top line, he hit a post, he was pulled down on a breakaway that resulted in a penalty and did just about everything except hit the scoresheet. Then came the three star selections. “It was crazy,” said Bowles the day after the game. “I just came back in the dressing room and someone called out the stars and they called me. I was asking questions. I didn’t know what to do. I skated

across the ice for a picture. The fans were screaming. It was pretty cool.” Pretty cool indeed, much like most of this season for Bowles, the Okanagan Rockets leading scorer and the second overall scorer in the B.C. Major Midget League. Not bad for a guy who didn’t arrive in Kelowna until pretty close to the start of the BCMML season when his family moved to the city from Calgary. In fact with four games remaining in the BCMML season, Bowles is set to take over the Okanagan Rockets single-season record for both goals and points. His 33 goals are tied with James Dobrowolski’s 33 while he is one point behind Dobrowolski’s point total of 68 points, both set during the 2006-07 BCMML season. “I guess that’s pretty crazy,” said Bowles, who was unaware of the impending records. “I haven’t thought about

that. I could not do it without my linemates Harlan Orr and Brett Mennear. They have really helped me this year and we’re really clicking and getting some points.” After playing last year in Alberta’s minor midget league as a 15-yearold, Bowles went undrafted in the WHL bantam draft. Tri-City though listed the 5-foot-10 centre this year. Americans general manager Bob Tory said Tuesday’s WHL debut by Bowles should be a sign of things to come for the offensive dynamo. “It was an exciting game and the way it progressed he got more and more ice time,” said Tory. “He’s a tremendously talented player and has a very good future in our league. He’s going to be a dynamic offensive player. I’m confident with his character he will train hard in the off-season to get stronger.” As for the rest of the season Bowles is now focussed on the upcoming

OKANAGAN ROCKETS player Parker Bowles (#18) is set to break single season Rockets team records for goals and points and just made his WHL debut with Tri-City. BCMML playoffs as the Okanagan Rockets have clinched a playoff spot and are looking to make some noise this year. Bowles says the team is playing its best hockey

at the right time. “The team has really been coming together,” he said. “We had a great month of January. It’s perfect timing for us going into playoffs.

“I think we can light it up and go far. I think we have a really good chance.” The Rockets will host the Vancouver Giants this weekend in regular sea-

Serwa on the road to recovery from early season knee injury Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

A season-ending knee injury has done nothing to dampen Kelsey Serwa’s enthusiasm for ski cross racing. If anything, the setback has made the 22-year-old from Kelowna even more committed to making a successful comeback. “I don’t have any second thoughts about it at all,” Serwa said this week from Whistler. “This (injury) has actually made me more eager and more determined to get back to it. It’s what I love doing.”

Three weeks after undergoing surgery to repair her damaged left knee, the 2011 world and X games champion is upbeat about the early stages of her road to recovery. Serwa suffered a tear to her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) after crashing at a World Cup race Jan. 11 in Alpe d’Huez, France. There was also damage to her meniscus which, along with the ACL, was repaired during a surgical procedure Jan. 30 in Squamish. Serwa is undergoing physio treatment on the

Kelsey Serwa knee in both Whistler and Kelowna, and makes daily visits to the gym for conditioning. If all goes as planned, Serwa could be as good as new by August and back

www.rosmanrv.com

on the snow. “I got back in the gym last week, I’m working on my upper body and core stability,” said Serwa who won the first two races of the World Cup season in Italy. “When I go to physio, I’m repairing my broken leg, trying to get to get those muscles firing again. “It’s kind of a feel-itout process at this point,” she added. “I can’t do any jumping or rotation for another four months, but I can keep working towards that. By summer I should be able to work out at the level I was before.”

In a perfect world, Serwa would be ready to compete in a FIS World Cup race in September in South America. “Right now it depends on whether that race is an Olympic qualifier or not,” she said. “If it is, there will maybe be a bit more pressure for me to get ready for it. If not, there’s still two years to qualify for the Olympics (2014 in Sochi, Russia). I can also look at using it as a warm-up.” While injuries are never welcomed, Serwa said the timing of her mishap could have much been worse.

FEB. 15-25th

She says with no Olympics or world championships in 2012, a little downtime might not be all bad. “It’s not totally unheard of for athletes to take a year off to prepare for bigger things to come,” she said. “I certainly wouldn’t plan it this way, but you take the positive aspects of an injury and work with it. We do a lot of our working out in the summers, so that could work out well for me, and I should be back to where I want to be.” A competitive skier from a young age, Serwa

isn’t accustomed to being off the snow during the winter months. Still, her days are anything but idle. “It doesn’t really seem like I have much time on my hands, two hours of physio every day, two hours a day of workouts, catching up on e-mails… there are lot of things I need to do. It hasn’t been too bad in that way. “There are more easy days than hard ones.” In addition to her rehab, Serwa will occupy some of her time this spring and summer taking a course at Okanagan College.

Chiefs, Coyotes a more even matchup than it looks Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It’s not your every day first round playoff series starting tonight between the Kelowna Chiefs and the Osoyoos Coyotes. The first place Coyotes and the fourth place Chiefs meet for game one of their best-of-seven Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff series in Osoyoos tonight. While the Chiefs did draw the top team in the Okanagan Division,

the Kelowna squad finished just nine points behind Osoyoos in the division and the two teams split eight regular season games this season with both teams winning four times. “We won three times on their ice so it’s not a scary situation for us like it was last year when they were so much better than us,” said head coach Ken Andrusiak, alluding to last year’s second round playoff series between the two teams, which Osoyoos won in four straight

games. “I think we match up pretty good. Our defense is pretty much the same and our top six forwards are pretty equal. The one difference is their power play is quite a bit better than ours so if we are taking stupid penalties they will make us pay.” Games one and two are tonight and Saturday in Osoyoos before the series shifts to the Rutland Arena on Monday and Tuesday nights. After rotating their goalies equally this year, Connor Wilkinson will

start between the pipes for Kelowna while on the injury front only rookie Brent Lashuk (lower body) was limping heading into the series and is a game time decision tonight. The Chiefs will rely on the offensive scoring of Dane Rupert and Landon Andrusiak, the team’s top two scorers. Rupert’s 86 points was ninth in the league while Andrusiak put up 73 points in just 39 games after missing time due to injury. The pair are among

four 20-year-old veterans who are closing out their junior hockey careers. Josh McEwan and Shayne Welker are the other 20-year-olds. “We have a lot of older guys and this is nothing new to them,” said Andrusiak. “I think they are looking forward to it in the sense that they want to go out with a bang. It’s the last kick at the can for them in junior so it means a lot to them.” With the series coming back to Rutland on Monday and Tuesday, the

SPORTS ▼ WHL

Rockets try to build on big win in Edmonton Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With a 6-4 win Wednesday over the Eastern Conference-leading Edmonton Oil Kings, the Kelowna Rockets couldn’t have asked for a much better start to their four-game WHL tour of Alberta. Now the trick will be carrying the momentum over into Friday night’s meeting in Lethbirdge against the Hurricanes. “We feel like all the

teams on this trip are very good teams, and we need to play the same way in Lethbridge as we did in Edmonton,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “It seems we’ll play a couple of good games at a time, then take a step back. We need to get over that as a team and be more consistent. As nice as the win was in Edmonton, we need to put that behind us and be ready to play Friday.” On Wednesday, in

front of more than 10,000 fans in Edmonton, Jordon Cooke was solid in the Rockets net stopping 43 shots, while Carter Rigby, Cody Chikie and Brett Bulmer paced the Kelowna attack with two goals each. Tyrell Goulbourne didn’t register a point, but the 18-year-old forward was once again a physical presence, engaging in a first-period bout with Klarc Wilson. “In a game where

there wasn’t a lot of emotion, Tyrell got the guys going with a great fight and he really stepped up for us again physically,” said Huska. It was the eighth straight road game in which the Rockets earned at least a point, a far cry better than at home where

Kelowna (26-27-3-5) has won only once in its last six games. “We seem to do a much better job of sticking together on the road, guys aren’t trying to do too much on their own,” Huska said. “There’s a lot more individual play at home and we have to get

away from that.” In the Hurricanes, the Rockets will face a team that staggered out of the gate this season, but has been playing solid .500 hockey since Christmas. “They’re really playing well, they’re 5-5 in their last 10, and they’ve been beating a lot of

good teams,” Huska added. “We’ll need to be prepared to work and play together.” The Rockets will visit Medicine Hat on Saturday, and the Calgary Hitmen on Sunday. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Warriors continue at home The Westside Warriors will continue its B.C. Hockey League home stand this weekend with a pair of games at Royal LePage Place. The Warriors will host Prince George tonight and Trail tomorrow as they continue to play out the stretch after being officially eliminated from the BCHL playoffs last weekend. r The Warriors have six games remaining in the season. Meanwhile former Warriors captain Alex Grieve is having a solid freshman season in the Atlantic Hockey Association (NCAA Div I) with Bentley University. Grieve was named the AHA player of the week after a six point night tied the team’s record for most points in a single game. Grieve now has 27 points, tied for sixth in the AHA

and is the second-leading rookie point scorer.

OC Coyotes get in some spring training in Vegas and Phoenix The 2012 Okanagan College Coyotes baseball team is having its own version of baseball spring training this week as the team is in Las Vegas and Phoenix kicking off its season by facing some top junior college programs in the USA. The trip signifies a more intense schedule this year for the OC baseball team as it prepares for another year in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. “We wanted to put ourselves up against the best competition we could find to prepare us for our conference,” said OC baseball coach Geoff White. “We should have an excellent spring if we stick to the fundamentals: Quality pitching, solid defense and being aggressive at the plate. We have a young talented team that f

could open some eyes.” While players on the Coyotes come from all over B.C., Western Canada and even the USA, the pitching staff will see three Okanagan players who should make contributions. Kelowna natives Michael Monster and Michael Tongue as well as Vernon’s Jeff May are among the hurlers who will see action. The pitching staff should be the anchor of the Coyotes with returning throwers Keifer Rodway, (Parksville) and senior Pete Tollenaar (Ft McMurray, AB) providing the veteran leadership. “Our pitching staff is a solid group this year. We will also rely upon some of our position players who are two way guys to provide some depth out of the bullpen,” said White,

‘‘

WE WANTED TO PUT OURSELVES UP AGAINST THE BEST COMPETITION WE COULD FIND TO PREPARE US FOR OUR CONFERENCE. Geoff White, coach

adding that the infield behind the pitchers should be solid. “I am really excited about our infield this year, we have some athletic players that are gritty and all around hard workers.” The outfield will almost have an entire new look. The only returning outfielder is sophomore Aidan McVea (Abbotsford, BC) who was an All

Conference performer in 2011. McVea will be also seeing time at the OC closer on the mound and will be surrounded by plenty of newcomers vying for playing time. “The outfield will be interesting in 2012,” said White. “We have a new crop of talented players that are fighting for playing time. With lots of preseason/non conference games we should get a good idea of where we will be at in the outfield.” Behind the plate the Coyotes return sophomore Matt Sanderson (Strathmore, AB) and another newcomer to the OC program is assistant coach Lyall Foran, who joined the team last year. “We have put in a lot of time on the field, in the gym and in the cages to prepare for this season,” said White.

WESTSIDE WARRIORS peewee tier 2 player Alex Taylor battles

a Penticton opponent during Game 2 of their Okanagan Mainline playoff series Saturday at Jim Lind Arena. Westside won 5-3, but then fell 5-1 on Sunday in the third and deciding game.

BC JOBS PLAN: FORESTRY

The Liquid Lightning Swim Club recently had athletes in Winnipeg competing against swimmers from across Western Canada and Salmon Arm racing against swimmers from the Thompson Okanagan. Ten Lightning swimmers travelled to Winnipeg Feb. 16 to 19 to compete at the Speedo Western Canadian Championships. Kierra Smith won the gold medal in the 200-m breaststroke with a 2:23.72.

Kiana McNulty swam to third in the 100-m free. The Lightning will be travelling to Surrey for the short course provincial championships March 1 to 4.

Region well represented at BC Games BC Games from A24

British Columbia has traditionally been synonymous with forestry and today this industry is still one of the cornerstones of our economy, especially in many rural communities which strongly value and support timber harvesting. With over two-thirds (60 million hectares) of the provincial land mass covered in forest we can count on a healthy industry for many more years. B.C. has more than 110 lumber mills, over 70 with a capacity of more than 40 million board feet per year; 27 veneer, plywood and OSB (oriented strand board) mills, eight pellet mills, 18 pulp mills (six of which are also paper mills) and over 80 other primary processing mills such as chips, shake and shingle, pole, and log manufacturers. The forestry sector has a deep pool of skilled professionals and a highly trained workforce. Altogether the industry employs well over 50,000 well paid employees, often the life-blood of small towns. B.C.’s forest sector is definitely starting to recover from the last decade’s downturn. Since 2009, over two dozen mills have announced they are reopening or adding shifts. The importance of this industry to B.C. is demonstrated by the fact that 40% of the province’s regional economies are based on forestry activities, in more than 7,000 businesses. Structuriam, developing a method to produce Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), received approximately $3.2 million in federal contributions and $2.5 million in provincial to support innovation and to help commercialize this new wood product. The company also invested more than $7.5 million in cash and in-kind contributions to produce CrossLam, the new line of CLT. The opening, in 2008, of a state of the art value-added wood facility in Okanagan Falls, which is the largest laminating facility in Canada with a production capability of over 60,000 board feet per day, speaks loudly to the success of the investment. One reason for growth in the industry is the Asian market. International buyers know that B.C. is a stable supplier of high-quality wood products; we can provide timber supply security. This secure supply, coupled with the fact our spruce, pine, fir, hemlock and balsam fibre baskets are among the richest in the world makes B.C. extremely attractive.

The B.C. brand of wood products is well established globally with market-leading shares in key countries such as China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. B.C. is also looking to be the first major country that deals in softwood lumber to establish its products in the India marketplace. Working with the federal government and industry, the Province has strengthened and diversified the B.C. forest sector by increasing market demand for softwood lumber throughout Asia. The global demand for bio-products from the forest is predicted to reach $200 billion a year. Renewable fuels, plastics, and chemicals for the pharmaceutical and food industries can potentially be manufactured by running wood fibre and residues through bio-refinery. B.C. has taken steps to make it easier for the non-lumber sector to source supplies of lower quality fibre. This includes fibre supply licences to cut to use logging debris that is left behind on landings and roadsides. Taking care of this natural abundance is critical. An amazing statistic is the fact B.C. has planted more than six billion trees since reforestation programs began in the 1930’s, and is on track to plant its seven billionth tree in 2013/14. We plant an average of 200 million trees each year. B.C. produces more wood products certified to environmental standards than any other region in the world and has 53 million hectares certified to one of three internationally recognized sustainable forest management certification standards. Growth now and in the future requires a solid foundation. B.C. created the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to deal with increasing demands and pressures on the land base by taking a more integrated approach to managing B.C.’s natural resources. BC Hydro launched a two-phase Bioenergy Call for Power. Phase one has helped advance bioenergy development in Kamloops, Castlegar and Prince George, while phase two has done the same for Chetwynd, Fort St. James, Fraser Lake and Merritt. B.C. has also passed the Wood First Act to promote and encourage a cultural shift that will make wood the first choice for construction in the commercial and institutional sectors as well as residential. The future looks very bright for this most iconic of British Columbia industries.

Representing eight zones across B.C., the

2012 BC Winter Games feature 1,145Athletes, 292

coaches, and 160 technical officials. More than 100 athletes and coaches hail from Kelowna, West Kelowna, Lake Country and Peachland. The athletes range in age from nine years old in figure skating to 17 years old in netball and hockey (female). Athletes with a disability range in age from 13-40 years old and will compete in para cross-country skiing. Volunteers in Vernon have been planning for almost two years to host participants and guests from across the province. Participants will be officially welcomed to the BC Winter Games tonight at the Opening Ceremony taking place at the Wesbild Centre. Sport competitions began on Thursday with 15 sports hosted at venues throughout Vernon including Silver Star Mountain Resort and Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre. The Games conclude February 26. As B.C.’s largest winter multi-sport event and showcase of athleticism, the BC Games inspire Athletes to pursue their athletic dreams. “Vernon is a passionate sport community and the over 2000 community volunteers will ensure the young athletes will be able to achieve their personal best” said Kelly Mann, President and CEO of the BC Games Society. 2012 BC Winter Games information including results can be found at www.bcgames. org and at 2012bcwintergames.

Okanagan director debut’s his first full-length movie Kristin Froneman BLACK PRESS STAFF

We’ve all felt it at one time. It usually comes as a visionary flash or feeling that triggers a memory of something that has transpired before. It was déjà vu that instigated former Vernon resident Jim Cliffe into action. Instead of letting the feeling rest to dissipate into his memory banks, he started writing, and eventually fleshed out a story idea for a script with his wife and writing partner Melodie Krieger. That was six years ago, and now that story has turned into Cliffe’s first full-length, live action directorial effort, Donovan’s Echo. “The original idea came from my own experiences of déjà vu that I sometimes get,” said Cliffe.” I thought there might be an idea here. We all experience it, that familiarity, the patterns, so I came with it to my wife and we went with it.” The film, which stars Danny Glover and Bruce Greenwood, is premiering in select cities across Canada, including at the Paramount Theatre in Kelowna Feb. 24 to March 1, and follows Glover’s character Donovan after he returns home to discover events from his past are repeating. Plagued by the idea of déjà vu, Donovan is convinced his young neighbour and her mother will be killed on the 30th anniversary of his wife and daughter’s death. Struggling to unlock the pattern, Donovan tries to convince his brotherin-law, Finnley (Greenwood), to help prevent a similar tragedy. When his facts don’t add up, Donovan’s sanity is questioned. Cliffe’s own story of how the film came to be is part dream, but mostly reality; that of finding financial backing, but being allowed the creative control to be able to direct his vision here in B.C. Cliffe, 39, who is from Sorrento and was schooled in Salmon Arm, moved to Vernon in the mid-’90s to study animation at Okanagan University College (now Okanagan College.)

“Growing up I always had the desire to get into movies, and I fueled my creativity through animation to fulfil my career,” he said. It was at the Vernon OUC campus where Cliffe got his first foray into filmmaking, making an animated commercial for TV station CHBC. After moving to Kelowna some years later, he, with help from his former instructor Raymond Bailey and students at OUC, directed the short animated film, Tomorrow’s Memoir. The film ended up winning the 2005 Best Comics-Oriented Film award at San Diego’s famed Comic-Con. “It was my first attempt and it helped me work towards my film career, ” said Cliffe who, while in Kelowna, joined independent film societies and took another film course at UBC Okanagan. The logical next step was to make a feature, and so Cliffe turned to Krieger, whom he had met while both worked for Internet company Bridges Transitions––he as a graphic designer and she as a copy writer. “We spent most of 2006 writing—evenings and weekends—whenever we could find free

After writing their script, Krieger and Cliffe send it off to various competitions and ended up placing in the top three for one based in L.A., and also placing high in another competition. “I heard from L.A. from people who wanted to develop the script, but the challenge was I wanted to direct it. I had a background in art and had done story boarding for film, and I thought it would be easy to finance the film,” said Cliffe. “I

initially wrote Donovan’s Echo like I had all the money in the world. With a film of this size, I wanted multi locations and a flashback scene.” Cliffe ended up going back to some old friends he had met while in Kelowna, including Trent Carlson, of Anagram Films whom he had worked with on the zombie feature Fido, which was filmed in and around Vernon. He also made contact with a former coworker, Lance Priebe, whom Cliffe had met in

the late ’90s and had remained friends with. Priebe would go on to become one of the three Kelowna entrepreneurs to develop Club Penguin, a virtual game for children that in 2007 sold to Disney for a reported $700 million US. “We both were let go from the same company at the same time. He wanted to create games,

and I wanted to create films,” explained Cliffe. Andria Spring also came on board to co-produce the film with Carlson. “It magically came together. We were able to get all our financing and production done in Canada, as well as distribution with a company out of Toronto,” said Cliffe. “Trent also knew a casting agent in L.A., who put a list of names out to us and one stood out.” That was Glover, best known for his roles in The Colour Purple and the Lethal Weapon movies. “We could so easily see him play into this world,” said Cliffe, who after hearing that Glover was interested, was soon after able to cast Canadian film and TV star Greenwood. Donovan’s Echo went into production in late2010, shooting on location around Maple Ridge and Fort Langley. “It was pretty exhausting. We had an ambitious 20-day shoot,” said Cliffe. “Danny basically carries the movie in that the audience experiences what he does. They are in his shoes. It has a supernatur-

al sub-plot, and they are marketing it as a thriller, but I think it is more of a drama with heart.” Cliffe and Krieger are hoping for the same kind of déja vu moment they’ve had with Donovan’s Echo as they develop their next screen play. Donovan’s Echo has so far enjoyed a successful festival run, opening the Calgary International Film Festival, where Greenwood attended, as well as in Vancouver, Victoria, Edmonton, and the Pan-African Film Festival in L.A. “We feel very fortunate on how this has turned out and have to thank our producers and crew who did a fantastic job. A director is really as good as his team,” said Cliffe. Krieger and Cliffe will be present to introduce the film and will conduct a Q&A session at its Kelowna screening in the Paramount Theatre on Bernard Avenue, both Friday and Saturday.

Bentley back to radio-friendly country DIERKS BENTLEY: HOME (CAPITOL)

where ace session guitarist Greg Leisz channels the late, great Clarence White. The closing There I Go Again is slightly more rootsy reminding me of The Band in more rustic mode. Again, six fine little bon bons for the big Amos Lee fan. C+

SOUNDING OFF

This is Dierks Bentley’s sixth album and every one of them has hit the top 10 of the country charts. But last year Bentley took a big gamble by releasing an alt-bluegrass album Up On The Ridge that sold well to his hard core fan base but didn’t register with the broader based country scene. The bluegrass effort garnered a couple of minor hits that scraped into the top 30

Bruce Mitchell but it marked the first time Bentley did not have a bona fide country smash. As a result he has returned to more contemporary radio-friendly music on Home, an album that has topped the country charts this week

while his new single and title track song is zooming up the charts. The song Home is a tad sentimental but sounds heartfelt as a minor key anthem where a country song gets about as topical as it ever does with the lyrics “no we are not the same but that’s what makes us strong” which might be something of a challenge in the red states. The obvious next single here is the boys-nightout rocker Am I The Only One, while the warm and romantic duet with Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town fame is another chart contender. Bentley tries a little country cornpone on Diamonds Make Babies (Bentley has noticed they seem to follow?) while the loopy and near novelty song 5-1-5-0 references Ozzy Osbourne and his metal classic Crazy Train. The closing song, Thinking Of You, is a credible but sentimental love song to hearth and home where, after a few

AMOS LEE: AS THE CROW FLIES (BLUENOTE/EMI)

You can call this new six-song mini album As The Crow Flies an adjunct release to Amos Lee’s album last year titled Mission Bell. All the songs were recorded during those sessions and I am not sure why they were not just added to that long player, but committed fans of Lee’s singer/songwriter mojo will enjoy these half dozen, all original tunes. These are mostly all acoustic settings where Lee sounds soulful and sweet on the ballad Simple Things like his home and wife that keep him grounded. The opening and mournful The Darkness kicks off this mini EP with a Dylan-like delivery where Lee brightens up near the end of the songs as day is dawning and the abyss of night no longer plaques him. There is one breezy track here with the late Byrds-like Say Goodbye

SIMONE DINNERSTEIN: SOMETHING ALMOST BEING SAID (SONY CLASSICAL)

True story: After I covered the last Simone Dinnerstein classical piano album, my wife gave it to a friend of hers, along with a few other new CDs, who was battling a serious disease and who was also a big classical piano buff, being a player herself. When my wife later visited her friend she pointed out the Dinnerstein album as something that really impressed her and made her feel a lot better. Later I discovered that Dinnerstein often plays in convalescent and retirement homes on her own personal down time when not recording or touring and that many have reported healing powers or health improvements and feeling better. Anyway, on this new album Dinnerstein plays strictly unaccompanied classical music from the Bach and Schubert repertoire where she, as usual, is getting fantastic notices from the classical music cognoscente who are way more qualified to comment on this than I am. And if there are more ethereal powers to Dinnerstein’s playing then I will leave it up to famed British poet Philip Larkin whose refrain gives this album its title with “The trees are coming into leaf, Like something almost being said.” A mooseman19@telus.net

Vulnerable Marilyn MY WEEK WITH MARILYN The story of the making of The Prince and the Showgirl is the basis for this one hour and 36 minute movie. Eddie Redmayne, plays Colin Clark, who wrote an account of working on the film which starred Marilyn Monroe and Sir Lawrence Olivier in 1957. The book was published nearly 40 years later—but one week was missing in the account. This film is the true story of that missing week. Marilyn Monroe, played well by Michelle Williams but missing the timbre of that throaty whisper that was so Marilyn (rememberHappy Birthday, Mr. President?), was born in the charity ward of LA County Hospital in 1926. Yes, Marilyn Monroe would have been 86 years old this year! Born Norma Jean Mortenson, she was passed from family member to family friend as her mother was mentally unstable. To avoid being placed in an orphanage a family friend orchestrated a marriage proposal when she was 16. In 1945, while working at an aeronautical plant, a photographer took her photo and by 1946 she was Marilyn Monroe. At the time of the filming of The Prince and the Showgirl at Pinewood Studio, Sir Lawrence Olivier, played by Kenneth Branagh, was, at the time, married to Vivien Leigh (Julie Ormond). Leigh, herself a prolific performer, suffered from bipolar disorder and chronic tuberculosis; they divorced in 1960. As life imitated art, Vivien says in the movie: “at 43, no

Susan Steen one will love me for very much longer.” Leigh died in 1967 from TB. Olivier, like all Monroe’s leading men fell for her but was frustrated by her chronic tardiness and seeming lack of preparedness. Olivier; however, found that when Marilyn was “on” there was no one like her. This show, directed by Simon Curtis has a great cast including Judi Dench, Emma Watson, from the Harry Potter series, Dougray Scott as her then husband, writer Arthur Miller, Zoe Wanamaker as Paula Strasberg, her acting coach and mentor to name a few. I loved this movie and it was pretty sad and a bit creepy to be one of only eight people in the largest theatre in the valley (The Paramount) on Saturday night. The show had a deep story of a talent that was out of her depth in the real world and, likely due to a lack of love in childhood, spent the rest of her life looking for it in all the wrong places. This was also Colin’s story of his week with the most famous woman of her time. There were many great lines, but one I really liked was spoken by Judi Dench in the role of Dame Sybil, a woman she knew in real life: “When one is young, one should use lots of mascara, when one is old, one should use more.” If you remember when movie stars weren’t pencil thin, when Nixon was vice-president, Tang hit the stores, 13-yearold Bobby Fisher became chess champion and maybe you began to understand that being a star did not give you a free ride to happiness, then you might enjoy this as much as I did. I give it five stars.

What’s new at six-million year old Grand Canyon Christopher Reynolds CONTRIBUTOR

Visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park this year will find new water-bottle refilling stations, a South Rim bicycle rental and bike-tour operation is expected to open, a multiuse trail is expected to be finished and more. Grand Canyon National Park, the five-million or six-million-year-old granddaddy of Arizona tourism, logged 4.3 million visitors last

year. Rangers say that’s a dip of 3.7 per cent from the year before, but the canyon remains among the nation’s most visited parks. And despite its age (also a ranger estimate), it does keep changing. Visitors to the South Rim—by far the park’s most heavily trafficked area—will find six recently installed water-bottle refilling stations near major trail heads. (There are three more on the North Rim.) The stations are designed to im-

prove hikers’ access to free water and boost reuse of bottles. Park officials have estimated that disposable water bottles make up as much as 30 per cent of the park’s solid waste. For more park info, go to www.nps.gov/grca. Other developments: • Park officials may have a new South Rim bicycle rental and bike-tour operation running as soon as May 15 in the Mather Point area.

TRAVEL â&#x2013;ź SEA OF LOVE

San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vistas make it grand for a wedding Ellen Creager DETROIT FREE PRESS

Coronado, CA.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;The bride wore silk and sandals. The groom wore a tie and sneakers. The 20 guests stood. The music was the ocean. And in 15 minutes, it was all over. Married. Elaine Mashburn, 29, and Mark Mezta, 28, of San Diego got hugs, congratulations and photos as their non denominational minister, the Rev. Grant Daversa, packed up his little folding tray in the sand and headed for his next beach wedding that day. Why did Mashburn want to get married here, and so simply? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coronado. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local,â&#x20AC;? she said, beaming and as radiant as any bride ever was. In the middle of winter, it is easy to dream about running away, eloping, or just getting married on a beach somewhere warm and beautiful. But in San Diego County, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that hard

to make it come true. In California, there is no waiting period for a marriage license. You just make an appointment at the county clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, get your license and, bingo, you are good to go. In addition, there are so many inspirational spots with grand views to host a simple wedding here, including San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunset Cliffs on the ocean and Cabrillo National Monument with its incredible vistas of San Diego Bay and the Pacific. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come from all over the country and all over the world, and they want to get married in the sand,â&#x20AC;? says the Rev. Renate Daversa, Grant Daversaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and fellow minister. Ten years ago, the two of them eloped to Catalina Island, so they understand the romantic impulse, the grand gesture of the sweet small service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our company is flexible,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are last-minute specialists.â&#x20AC;? The company, A Beautiful Wedding, does weddings as simple as a

service only ($300) or as complex as a beach wedding with chairs for 24 guests, music, a wedding arch and more ($1,950). In California, you need only one witness. Many couples, like Mashburn and Mezta, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anything too fancy. Their $850 Memories package included the service, bouquet, boutonniere and photographer. San Diego has several wedding officiants who specialize in small beach, military and elopement weddings. Not to throw cold water on anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romantic dreams, there is some controversy about beach weddings. In November, the Coronado City Council discussed whether too many weddings were disrupting traffic with trucks, guests and elaborate set-ups. The issue is being studied. Right now, no permit is needed for weddings of 24 people or fewer. However, at the same

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NOT

Barefoot wedding on California beach San Diego from A32 time, the nearby Cabrillo National Monument across San Diego Bay is looking to expand its outdoor wedding business. The park allows only daytime weddings, no more than 100 people, no chairs or set-up, and only at a spot called Wedding Bluff, a breezy spot near the lighthouse. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recommend hoop skirts,â&#x20AC;? warns Ranger Bob Munsonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it would be bad form for the bridal party to blow over the edge.) However, this spring, Cabrillo plans to expand hours, allow couples to shoot wedding photographs in the park, and loosen some regulations to attract more weddings, says Ranger Marty Lane. Another famous wedding spot, Sunset Cliffsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Luscombs Point in San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point Loma neighborhood, is a broad stony plateau near Hill Street. On the flat stones jutting out into the ocean, there are three white benches. The coast turns to gold in late afternoon as the sun sets. The downside? Surfers use the spot to slide into the ocean, and there is a constant stream of runners, walkers, dogs on leashes and cars passing by. Still, the charm of a simple wedding is that it does not have to be perfect. Back at Coronado Central Beach, the Saturday afternoon wedding of Mashburn and Metza happens to be on a warm, perfect day. The wedding party is small, dwarfed by sun worshipers pitching umbrellas, shouting children, women in bikinis and swimmers toting boogie boards. But during the modest service, distractions fade. Here is the bride, walking through the sand on the arm of her father. Here is the groom, taking her hand. Here are two people getting married, with their earnest faces speaking their heartfelt vows, their loved ones standing close by, their warmth encircling the new husband and wife on their path together. And you know, I get a little teary.

HOW TO SAY I DO

Marriage Licenses: Nonresidents can get immediate marriage licenses in California ($70), but

in San Diego County, you must have an appointment at the county clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. Book up to two months in advance at 619-237-0502 (follow the prompts for marriage licenses). Details: http://arcc.co.sandiego.ca.us. Locations: Cabrillo National Monument, San Diego: Wedding permits on a sliding scale, up to 100 guests; for 1-10 people itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $100 plus a $75 application fee. Weddings can be held 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Wedding Bluff near the lighthouse, with no chairs or set-up allowed (exceptions made for disabled guests). However, regulations may soon be loosened, so contact Ranger Marty Lane (marty.lane@ nps.gov) or see www.nps. gov/cabr for more information. Coronado Central Beach, Coronado: No permit needed for groups of 24 or under, and you can set up chairs (regulations are under city review, so check to confirm on the parks and beaches page

In late April, a 21-year-old man accidentally drove his vehicle over the canyon rim—and survived. The driver crawled up to safety; rangers said they found the vehicle lodged against a tree 200 feet beneath the rim. Then there’s the Hualapai Tribe’s Grand Canyon West operation, two and a half hours’ drive from Las Vegas and five hours from the South Rim. The Hualapai’s 5-year-old Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass-floored horseshoeshaped walkway, allows visitors to look straight down to the red rock gorge 4,000 feet below. The tribe also offers Colorado River rafting day trips and pontoon boat rides, helicopter rides, horseback rides, lodging, dining and a faux Old West town for kids near the canyon’s edge, along with more lodging on tribal land along Route 66 at Peach Springs. The minimum cost to walk the Skywalk is $76.10 under

Chevrolet is back moving people Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

Chevrolet is back in the seven-seat people mover business with the 2012 Orlando. While considered a CUV, it’s really a station wagon in my opinion along the same lines of the popular Mazda5 and the Dodge Journey which is currently the largest selling compact CUV on the market. Much like the Mazda5, the Orlando is aimed at Asian and European buyers. In Asia and Europe, the ability to carry up to seven in confined spaces is much valued and why there are so many of these vehicles offered by so many manufacturers. The Orlando is not square like the Journey

nor is it as swept in its shape as the Mazda5 although the roofline follows the same downward appearance. Unlike its competitors, the Orlando has a theatre style seating arrangement with three rows of seats, along with a sizable cargo area and flexible storage solutions. In spite of the sweeping roofline, the engineers and designers were able to raise the third row of seats offering passengers an improved view both forwards and to the side. With a wide variety of seating configurations, Chevrolet claims the Orlando can be adjusted into one of the most voluminous vehicles in its class when it comes to cargo capacity at 1,594 litres See Orlando B3

CONTRIBUTED

THE 2012 ORLANDO is Chevrolet’s answer to the growing small, seven-seat people mover market that is so popular in Asia and Europe and is gaining ground in North America.

Orlando stands tall on wheelbase Orlando from B3 largely on vehicle cost and economy of operation. Tested here is the LTZ with $2,305 worth of options and a $1,495 shipping fee for a total of $33,535. Already on sale in 17 other countries, you can tell the Orlando was aimed at Euroasian markets by its stance. Based on the Cruse compact car platform, it is not as wide as the Mazda5 but taller, something you really see when following from behind.

Ride was what you want in this kind of vehicle, being more skewed toward cruising than sporting but with the feeling coming through the steering wheel of a taut suspension. The Orlando with its six-speed automatic transmission was quicker off the line and reached highway speeds quicker than my four-speed automatic Mazda5 with both having about the same power, displacement and weight. The standard analog primary gauge cluster is easy to read with large numerals with a handy centre digital driver information display. I have come to depend on these driver info systems and would now not order a vehicle without one.

While GM is officially out of the minivan market, CUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse or Equinox just don’t reach all Canadians and the reason why the Journey, in particular, is so popular in this country. With the 2012 Orlando, Chevrolet has covered that base with a roomy, fuel-efficient vehicle that really does fit the people mover bill.

MOTORING ▼ ROAD TEST

Ford reinforces its Focus on compact cars Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

When I did a First tDrive of the 2012 Ford Focus last year I made sure that any subsequent road test would be thorough and for a good reason. I won’t bore readers rwith the story yet again, but I once owned a 2001 Ford Focus that was, in a word, terrible. So this time around I spent not one week but two, driving a SEL and a Titanium. As part of the “new” Ford strategy of “One World” cars, we get the same 2012 Focus available around the globe. Now it is made in Michigan, not Mexico, which was, in my opinion, part of the problem with the first generation. My 2001 Focus besides being mechanically weak had odd styling. Not bad mind you, but odd with ellipses competing with straight lines for visual attention. The 2012 Focus was styled by Morey Callum, an old acquaintance, who keeps coming up with fresh new designs. As head of Ford styling for the Americas, Callum has introduced what he calls “kinetic design” on the new Focus. When I attended the initial press launch last year, Callum was in attendance and described the overall look as starting with a striking front end with a very pronounced beltline running from just

behind the front wheel well to the rear making it look taut and fun to drive. But there is more to it than that. The new Ford design language is also highly aerodynamic. For instance the drag coefficient on the 2012 Focus is 0.297 compared to 0.320 for the current model. There are many contributing factors to this such as a steeply raked windshield, but a key is the grille. Using new active grille shutters, they close when airflow to the radiator is not required. This has the added bonus of improving aerodynamic efficiently at higher speeds and, at the same time, reducing under hood temperatures at low speed that, in turn, increases thermal efficiency. It’s what you call a win-win. The 2012 Focus is powered by a gasoline direct injection inline, fourcylinder engine producing 160 hp and 146 lb/ft of torque. This engine is a great advance over what has gone before. For instance the 2.0-litre four-cylinder used in my 2001 Focus made 135 hp and 130 lb/ ft of torque. More to the point the 2.0-litre used in the 1993-1997 Ford Probe mustered only 118 hp. There are no less than four ways to go when it comes to fuel economy. The base fivespeed manual is rated at 7.8/5.5L/100 km (36/51 See Focus B6

THERE ARE SEVERAL seating options on the 2012 Focus. This is the SEL with black leather seats with white leather inserts.

MOTORING ium Sedan, ($24,499) and Hatch ($25,099). There is a shipping charge of $1,450. Both the SEL and Titanium have way more room than my old 2001 Focus. In fact, the interior is easily up to mid-size. In the sedan, there is 13.2 cu ft in the trunk. With the hatchback that grows to 23.8 cu ft behind the second row seats and 44.8 cu ft with the second row folded. Both came with the optional heated black leather seats with white leather inserts which is the first time I think I have ever seen such a pairing. The steering wheel was also black leather with white on the top and across the bottom. The interior has a lot of buttons because of all the features. But they are clearly marked, and for the most part, easy to use. That, however, is something I can’t say for the SYNC voice activated infotainment system on both the SEL and Titanium. On my way to the auto show in Detroit, I thought I would try out the navigation system to see how it worked. Parked just east of Sarnia on a Sunday morning on my way through Port Huron to the Renaissance Centre in Detroit, I tried to punch in the name and address of the hotel. SYNC would have none of it. First, it would not let me opt for Michigan and firmly kept me in Canada. So I tried the voice activation and it would not let me spell Renaissance perhaps because it was too long a word. Then I got smart and found the toll-free SYNC help number in both Canada and the U.S. I phoned both only to get a recorded message that the offices where closed Sunday. I was told later the Ti-

tanium I was driving was a very early one and so was the SYNC, so there might have been a glitch. I think that is true because three times over just 600 km SYNC turned itself off (once for almost two hours) and did “scheduled maintenance” which seemed odd. On the plus side, I was thankful for the tire pressure monitoring system. As part of the driver info display between the two main gauges, it let me know one tire was soft in time for me to pump it up before returning home. With the SEL, I went to my favourite twisty road and drove fairly aggressively to try out what Ford calls its front drive torque vectoring. In a nutshell, when you come out of a corner hard, there is a measured amount of braking to the inside front wheel that slows it down slightly and reduces the amount of understeer (the tendency to go straight) which adds to stability plus less steering effort on the part of the driver. Body roll, a major failing on my 2001 Focus, was practically non-existent. Braking was also very easy to modulate reacting to inputs nicely. All in all, the 2012 Ford Focus SEL as tested here is a solid family car that gets the job done in a very good-looking package.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never seen a Harley in white before.â&#x20AC;? The guy walking his dog couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but comment as he strolled past. The same thought had occurred to me when I first picked up my latest test ride. I suppose we had both overlooked the usual white tint of cop bikes, but I naturally expected nothing but black and chrome on anything badged with the famous Harley-Davidson logo. Usually the only thing white on a Hawg is the beard of the geezer riding it. But then again, this wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your average Harley. There were still a few weeks of winter left before my motorcycle testing was scheduled to resume, so this Harley came with four wheels instead of two. Ford and Harley-Davidson first blended the two brand names in 1999, a successful collaboration that resulted in more than 70,000 Harley-styled trucks sold from a stable of ten different F-150 models over the years, as well as six Super Duty

F-250 and F-350 models, even a big Harley-Davidson F-450 edition truck in 2009. The 2012 Ford HarleyDavidson F-150 builds on the modern lines of the 12th generation F-Series

pickup, adding custom cool cues that start with a bold front fascia and a six-bar, billet-style bright chrome grille. Huge new 22-inch See F-150 B9

MOTORING â&#x2013;ź F-150 HARLEY

Mounted with P Zero low-profile performance tires F-150 from B8 machined-aluminum wheels have painted accents, along with HarleyDavidson bar and shield centre caps. The wheels are mounted with P Zero low-profile performance tires, kind of silly, really, on a 4X4 truck, but well in keeping with the custom-style lowered stance and attitude of this fourwheel-drive Hawg. Standard, fully integrated deployable running boards slide out when you tug the doors open. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no shortage of additional Harley hints to separate this premium truck from the rest of the herdâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;cloisonnĂŠ badges are mounted on the rear and behind the front fenders. And, although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how long theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll last in some neighbourhoods, the Harley-Davidson name is mounted in raised chrome lettering along both box sides as well. This is the first year that the H-D special edition has been offered in white, a lustrous White

screen start greeting, to the seat badges and console lid serialization plate with laser-engraved VIN numbers, produced by the same company that makes the bar and shield badges for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The H-D logo is even prominent on the box bedliner. This Harley-Davidson edition comes only in SuperCrew Cab configuration and the premium appointments complement ample seating room for five. To get a sense of the content levels of this truck, follow the trim level

bump-ups from the base vehicle all the way up to the top-of-the-line Lariat level. And then add even more stuff, like the included Nav system and upgraded Sony audio, rear view camera, heated rear seats, remote start, a 110volt power outlet, power moonroof and more. The H-D truck comes only with the short 5.5foot box that, in this tester, was complemented with a pickup box extender. Under the hood, the 2012 Harley-Davidson See F-150 B11

THE 2012 FORD Harley-Davidson F-150 is accented with a snakeskin texture graphic in the style of motorcycle tank art Platinum Tri-Coat with a pearl-like finish but, yes, the truck also comes in traditional Tuxedo Black. Both paint jobs benefit from a new bodyside graphic executed in a unique snakeskin texture, inspired by the tank inserts

on Harleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premium-level CVO motorcycles. The snakeskin theme and texture is also reflected inside the truck. Interior trim panels are covered in high-gloss Tuxedo Black paint, contrasted by satin chrome

accents, while the console lid and upper steering wheel carry the snakeskin leather. The scuff plate also features brushed aluminum with snakeskin texture and the premium snakeskin leathertrimmed seats come with

accent color inserts and more cloisonnĂŠ badging. Apparently, most of the Harley-Davidson F-150 team at Ford are Harley owners themselves, evident in the badging overkill that runs the gamut from an on-

Ford captures essence of Harley-Davidson from attitude to ambiance F-150 from B9 F-150 boasts a 6.2-litre V8 gasoline engine with bestin-class horsepower and torque numbersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;411 hp at 5500 rpm and 434 lb/ft of torque. This engine makes muscle the old fashioned way with big displacement and with iron block, aluminum head SOHC architecture laid out in modern fashion, mated to a SelectShift six-speed automatic with tow/haul mode and putting traction to the tarmac with a two-speed switchable four-wheel drive system (standard in Canada) that includes a 4A mode all-wheel drive setting. Fuel economy is rated at 18.5/12.7/100km (city/

hwy). But, based on personal experience, you will probably use between 2025 litres of regular gas per 100 kilometres, depending on towing and driving demands. Not particularly thrifty but, then again, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d assume that anyone even looking at a $65K truck wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be particularly worried about those numbers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a stretch, comparing a truck to a motorcycle. Especially when a truck carries four times as many passengers, has about four times the engine displacement, four times as many cylinders inside that engine, more than four times the mass and curb weight of even the biggest bikes in the Harley lineup, and a

bottom line that also costs almost four times as much as an average two-wheeler. But Ford has done its best to capture the essence of Harley-Davidson in everything from attitude and ambiance, down to the exhaust note, although I suppose disconnecting a few spark plug wires would mimic the Harley paintshaker vibration more perfectly. This premium pickup may demand a love for all things to do with motorcycles, and maybe a winning lottery ticket, but for fans of both brands, the 2012 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 does a good job of marrying the content and qualities of both icons, somehow captur-

NELSON, WILLIAM JAMES “BILL” Born April 19, 1915 in Toronto and peacefully passed away February 9, 2012 in Kelowna in his 96th year. Survived by his daughter Linda Sproule, granddaughter Bri Sproule and grandson Dylan Sproule. Dad enjoyed many sports throughout his life, including baseball and basketball in his younger days and bowling and golfing after retirement. He was an avid reader (no glasses ever needed!) and thoroughly enjoyed endless card games with his friends at Hawthorn Park where he lived for fifteen years. For the past five years, we had the pleasure of “Papa’s” company and wonderful sense of humour in our home where he enjoyed life and good health until his passing. Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the staff of 5B at KGH for their kindness and wonderful care. A memorial service will be held at Hawthorn Park, 867 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 11:00 am to celebrate his life. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

KLASSEN, Cynthia Ruth

Apr. 9, 1957 – Feb. 10, 2012 Passed away suddenly but peacefully in her sleep at age 54 in her Maple Ridge home. Cynthia was born in Saskatoon, SK, the daughter of Frank and Ruth (nee Rempel) Klassen. She was born the second oldest of four children into a loving family, but faced many challenges throughout her all too short life. Cynthia shared her mother’s remarkable memory for birthdays and anniversaries as well as enjoyed a gift for writing poetry. She also had an amazing sense of humour, even in her darkest hours, cheering up many a person with her phone calls. Cynthia was a devoted Christian, baptized in Richmond Bethel Mennonite Brethren Church on Aug. 17, 1975. Cynthia is predeceased by her mother Ruth and survived by her father Frank Sr. as well as brothers Frank, Lorne and Jeff along with her sister-in-laws Karen, Wendy/Rose & Kate; nieces and nephews Kaila (Kevin - daughters Ava & Evvy), Kelsey, Philip (Lian), Elise and Aaron. During Cynthia’s hardest times, she appreciated the love and support of her family along with many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. A time of sharing and celebrating Cynthia’s courageous life will take place at the Holiday Inn Magnolia Room, 8750 204th Street, Langley on Saturday, Mar. 3 at 2 pm. A reception will follow. Memorial gifts can be made to the Women Against Violence Against Women (wavaw.ca), Covenant House Vancouver (covenanthousebc.org) or Union Gospel Mission (ugm.ca).

SHOWCASE

HST transition measures Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

On Feb. 17, only days before the provincial budget was presented in the B.C. Legislature, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon announced details of the planned HST to PST transition for new home purchases. The HST plan, called transition measures by the government, details rebate increases in the provincial portion of the HST on new homes until the HST is completely phased out. The announcement was welcomed by members of the local new home industry. In a fact sheet released by the government, the purpose of the new rules is to help ensure when people buy a newly constructed home under the PST, whether built entirely under the HST, entirely under the PST, or partly under HST and partly under the PST, they will pay a consistent and equitable amount of tax. “The transition rules provide certainty for new-

home construction and sales particularly during the transition period.” How the new HST transition rebate system works and timeline: Prior to the introduction of the HST, it is estimated that the average new home built in BC had embedded PST of two percent. During the HST a rebate on the provincial portion of that tax was available on new home purchases up to $525,000. The rebate was designed to cushion the effects of HST on the industry and create an impact roughly equivalent to the estimated prior PST tax value on a new home. The B.C. new housing rebate threshold will increase to $850,000, effective April 1, 2012. This increase in the threshold of the purchase amount of the home covers about 90 percent of all new homes built in B.C. The maximum rebate available to the home buyer under the new transition rules is now $42,500. This applies to all new home buyers of principal residence properties in B.C.

Outside of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, secondary vacation and recreation homes will be eligible to claim a provincial grant of up to $42,500 effective April 12, 2012. In the Okanagan, where a comparatively large proportion of new home purchases are second homes this decision is fresh money in buyers’ pockets. B.C.’s portion of the HST will no longer apply to newly built homes where construction begins on or after April 1, 2013. Builders will revert to paying PST on materials and on average, about two percent of the home’s final price will be embedded PST. The temporary rebate measures will be in place until March 31, 2015. The tax only applies to home where construction begins before the transition date and ownership and possession occur after. Local reaction: Tammy Jackson, executive director of the Canadian Home Builders Associ-

CONTRIBUTED

THE PROVINCE has introduced new measures to help buyers of new homes during the transition period as the HST is phased out and B.C. returns to the PST. ation, Central Okanagan said the announcement is a major positive for local new home builders and buyers. “Now is a good time to buy and build, certainly in the next 13 months,” she said. Jackson pointed out interest rates are low, material costs have come down since their peaks during the boom and labour

prices are competitive. The Okanagan has good new home product on the market right now with broad spectrum choices from quality builders. Builder Miles Krahn, owner of Meadow Ridge Homes said customer traffic through his show home in Wilden is up in recent weeks and even prior to the announcement the

HST was the most popular topic. “We’ve really noticed customers are aware of the HST, it is being offered up as a reason a lot,” he said. “The long and the short of it is with this announcement the HST has become such a benefit.” Krahn says there appears to be some pent up demand in the new home marketplace as buyers

were determining the best course of action with the HST. The transition measures change the equation completely said Krahn. “There is no reason for people to hold back. Even with talk about rumours the HST announcement was coming we saw an uptick in traffic.”

W OF PRIME INTEREST

Purchase plus improvements can help to get renos done sooner

T

his article will focus on how to purchase a home you can afford and incorporate any improvements you would like to make into your new mortgage. Most lenders offer what is called a purchase plus improvements. In your search for the perfect home you may be coming up short—the house is the perfect size and in the perfect location but may need an update such as new flooring

or perhaps a new kitchen or bathroom. Negotiate your best price on the home purchase and at the same time decide what you would like to do in terms of renovations or improvements. At that point you will be required to obtain quotes for the work you would like to have done. The quotes are added to the purchase price and mortgage financing is based on the total cost of

renovations plus the price of the home. As an example, the purchase price of your new home is $350,000 plus the cost of renovations, estimated at $50,000 for a total of $400,000. A property appraisal will confirm the home will be worth $400,000 once the renovations have been completed. The downpayment is based on $400,000 so, if you are putting five per cent down, your down-

payment will be $20,000. The funds to purchase the home will be advanced at your closing date. At this point you own the home and will then proceed to have the renovations done in a timely matter. When the renovations are complete the appraiser will return to your home to confirm all are done and the lender will advance the additional $50,000 for the improvements.

If you currently own a home and would like to do a renovation the same scenario would apply. Your home would be appraised with an as is value before the renovations are done. The appraiser will take into consideration the renovations and the cost of the renovations and provide a new value for your home once they are complete. Your mortgage financing would be based on the value after renovations

were complete. If you have an existing mortgage it would be paid out from the as is value and the additional funds required for the renovations would be advanced to you when the renovations are complete. Mortgage rates are at an all-time low again, so if you are contemplating purchasing or doing improvements to your home, now is a good time. A five-year fixed-rate mortgage is available as

low as 3.19 cent and a variable rate mortgage is currently three per cent.

You may be eligible to have the government pay for most or even all of a valuable energy efficient upgrade to your home! Most Homes built before 1994 have no insulation in their crawlspace or basement and little or no insulation in their attics! If you’re interested in saving up to 35% on your heating and cooling costs, call us today before the Provincial Funding expires! See the box below for actual examples of what your savings could be! Previous Energuide and ecoENERGY recipients are eligible too. Landlords, co-ops, strata’s and corporate owners are eligible. Call us today to see if you qualify. You must act quickly as time is running out on these grants!
