Troubled cop may now face a third assault charge Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

The Mountie who gained national attention for kicking Kelowna resident Buddy Tavares in the face, will be charged with two counts of assault causing bodily harm, while action on a third complaint of excessive force awaits. Peter Hourihan, the RCMP’s deputy commissioner, made the announcement that Crown Counsel approved charges against Const. Geoff Mantler in Kelowna on Thursday afternoon, noting that he realized action on the matter was “extremely important to British Columbians” and, in particular, local area residents. Since the Jan. 7 incident, where Mantler was filmed kicking Tavares in the head while he was on all fours, there’s been a widespread call for charges to be levied, in the forms of public protest and commentary. But it appears as though the Mountie’s issues with excessive force actually pre-date that confrontation. “There were two incidents that had occurred (with Mantler) when the Tavares incident occurred,” Hourihan said. The first complaint of excessive force resulting

Peter Hourihan in a charge was made Aug. 30, 2010, and Hourihan refused to offer any details on that charge. Jeremy Packer’s recently publicized complaint for an alleged Aug. 10, 2010, incident wasn’t reported until after the Tavares case became public. In that situation, Packer was stopped on W.R. Bennett Bridge under suspicion of theft of a boat he had actually just reposessed, and he’s claimed Mantler punched him in the head during the arrest. Overall, Hourihan admits these complaints have been a “black eye” on the police. “This type of behaviour, if substantiated in court, or in our internal code of conduct, is extremely concerning for me,” he said. “It’s disappointing at a very minimum and it’s See Assault A14

Mission parkland bequest worth millions Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

The death last week of the last local member of a pioneering Central Okanagan family has resulted in the bequest of a 324hectare piece of parkland in the shadow of Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park.

The property has been left to the Central Okanagan Land Trust by the Johns family, with the death March 15 of 92-year-old Alf Johns. Hugh Westheuser, pastpresident of COLT, had known Alf and his sister Nancy Johns for the past 30 years and said the gift says a lot about the family and

the type of people they were. “They felt it was important that future generations should know the Okanagan as they knew it,” said Westheuser. “They felt that wildlife should continue to have a place to live in the Okanagan. They respected the land and they didn’t put great demands on nature by the way

they lived,.” He guesstimated the value of the land at $2 million to $3 million, adding that a land management plan will now have to be undertaken for the property. Neither Alf nor Nancy had children, and Nancy first exSee Bequest A13

Water ‘IQ’ should be determined before suggesting changes Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

It’s a myth that Canada has masses of water, according to Oliver Brandes, associate director for the POLIS project on ecological governance at the University of Victoria. There’s actually no surplus of water in Canada, he told a small group of people in Kelowna Tuesday evening, as part of a panel discussion organized by the Okanagan Basin Water Board to celebrate World Water Day. And, as far as exporting water is concerned, he pointed out that in fact water is heavy and hard to move, so, on the whole, it’s far cheaper to conserve water than to move it from one place to another. He suggested a water IQ should be a precondition to making change happen, so people would learn to have a basic understanding of such issues as where their water comes from. The topic for panel members was Water in an Urbanized World: Water, Food, Land and People in the Okanagan, and panelists included

UBCO anthropologist John Wagner, UBCO resource economist John Janmaat, Toby Pike, manager of the South East Kelowna Irrigation District, Domenic Rampone from a pioneer farming family and Anna Warwick Sears, Oliver Brandes executive-director of the OBWB. Janmaat noted that the valley is changing, with half the farms and twice the people in the past 30 years. Traditionally, residents were intimately connected with their water, but that’s no longer the case. He pointed out too, that most of the agricultural production is not basic food. Instead it’s agri-food with the experience of it being part of its cost and attraction.

There are lots of places in the world where there is better capacity to grow food, he added, and growing food here is not cheap. Rampone noted food is why we exist and water is needed to grow food, so it’s important we preserve water so we can become self-sufficient. Water reserves tied to agricultural land are important. “We don’t want to lose water for food production,” he said. Wagner said agriculture is threatened as much by the cost of farmland as by water, so the average age of farmers is now ‘old,’ with young people not able to get into farming. “We’ve retreated in our support for agriculture,” he said, but long-term we need to provide support for agriculture. Instead of orchards, he would like to see local produce grown on valley farms. “There should be farmland next to your favourite cappuccino bar,” he suggested. Sears said research shows much of our water goes to keep lawns green and advised with less sprawl, more people could be accommodated

here without affecting the needs of agriculture for water. “We can have a balance; share the water,” she commented. Pike agreed with her concern about conserving water, and said green lawns shouldn’t be a status symbol. However, he said conservation of water helps, but aging infrastructure will require that more is charged for water in order to pay to replace it eventually. Economic instruments are not needed to stop water waste; regulations are needed, he said. He said in his district farmers are leasing from the rich landowners, but now even those farmers are walking away from the leases because they can’t afford to continue losing money growing apples. There is a need to ensure there’s water for all agricultural land whether it’s in production or not, he added. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

I spent plenty of evenings in the dark when we lived in our log home on 40 acres in the Caribou— miles from the nearest power pole—and I can’t remember that it did me any harm. And, I sure appreciated electric power when our generator was on. We didn’t have many appliances that plugged into the wall.

Okanagan Indian Band wants future land base designated richard rolke

purchased in 2002 using funds from a land claims settlement with the federal government. The settlement was for 1,147 acres removed from the reserve in 1881. The ranch would increase the reserve land base to about 28,000 acres. “When the lands were purchased, there was the thought that there would be land for future generations around the issue of housing,” said Alexis. “It will benefit our band in that way.” Environmental assessments

CONTRIBUTOR

Members of the Okanagan Indian Band are navigating bureaucracy to ensure a future land base. The band is in year eight of a 10-year process to have 1,088 hectares it owns on the west side of Okanagan Lake officially designated as reserve. “It’s a long and drawn out process with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada,” said Chief Fabian Alexis. The Beau Park Ranch was

have been completed and consultation is underway with other jurisdictions. On Monday, band councillors made a presentation to the Central Okanagan Regional District about the proposed expansion of reserve land. Of the 1,088 hectares, four parcels totalling 190 hectares are adjacent to Westshore Estates and within CORD’s boundaries. CORD opposed the application in 2009, but it has now decided to consider the matter further.

“We want to go forward and have staff look at it in conjunction with the band,” said Jim Edgson, North Westside Road director. “We don’t have enough information and we want some points clarified.” Among the concerns that have arisen from CORD are lost taxes and road access into the area. Edgson believes the road issue can be addressed. “What we have to make sure that we do is that any judgements we make are thoughtful and fair,” he said. Alexis says the band is

looking at how to maintain road access, and he insists taxation should not be a reason to oppose reserve status. “They are looking at their tax dollars but there are very few tax dollars coming from those lands because it’s raw and there is nothing on it,” said Alexis. “Currently, we do pay taxes on those properties.” Most of the Beau Park Ranch is located in the North Okanagan Regional District. In 2009, NORD received a referral from the federal government about the band’s pro-

posal. A firm position was not taken on adding land to the reserve. “One property has taxable improvements on it, the remaining properties have no taxable improvements according to the 2009 B.C. Assessment Authority tax rolls,” said then-planner Steve Noakes in a letter to INAC. “The regional district has no infrastructure within this area and there are no community water or community water systems to service the properties. Roads are within the jurisdiction of the province.”

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Outgoing Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Stockwell Day says the Opposition “engineered” today’s expected election call with a plan to form a coalition government if his party, the Conservatives, cannot form a majority government. Day, who announced two weeks ago he would not run in the next election, said despite all indications coming from the Liberals and NDP for months that they planned to force an election around the time of the federal budget, he was genuinely surprised they carried through with the threat. Using Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s description that an election is unnecessary 2 1/2 years into the current mandate, Day said he truly believes Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff

words, “present a plan to raise taxes.” “There will be a clear choice for voters,” added Day. The Opposition will also likely raise the issue of ethics given the scandals plaguing the Harper government, such as the contempt citation—the first in Canadian history for a government, accusations of contempt of Parliament for International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda over her explanation for changing a recommendation to give a non-profit group funding, the so-called in-andout advertising plan during the last election that was found to be illegal, and an investigation into a former aide to the prime minister accused of illegal lobbying. The Liberals, NDP and Bloc have all said they will not support the budget which, in itself, would trigger an election.

In recent weeks, Canadians have been bombarded with political attack ads, first from the Conservatives and then from the Liberals. Day said heading into an election, candidates may want to keep it clean, but often jabs are thrown in the heat of an election race. “When the gun sounds, everyone is trying to keep it clean at the starting line but halfway down the track, elbows tend to get thrown,” he said. Day, who held the Okanagan-Coquihalla riding for 11 years and easily won the last election with 58 per cent of the vote, will hand over the Tory reigns to federal newcomer Dan Albas in the next election. He will be challenged by the NDP’s David Finnis, a Summerland councilor, and a Liberal candidate to be nominated March 28.

Albas, a Penticton city councillor, is no stranger to getting elected, said Day, and he will be available to Albas and his team but will wait to be asked. In response to accusations by some unsuccessful, wouldbe Conservative candidates that Day’s announcement was deliberately coordinated to exclude them, the veteran MP shrugged it off as untrue. He said within minutes of his announcement, “everyone” knew and he had calls from many potential candidates. He said the well organized ones got their nomination papers filed in time. He denied he had a chosen successor. “Hard-working volunteers are the ones who run the (nomination process), not the party brass,” said Day. “I feel bad that their actions are now being questioned.”

The antler lapels and furry hoods may not scream recyclable, but for Megan Mackenzie Jones the discarded remnants used to make these pieces are just the reusable tools she needed to land a spot in this year’s Wearable Art Gala. The Alternator Gallery for Contemporary Art is attracting attention far and wide for the event this year, which is running with a recycling theme. Mackenzie and her models, for example, are driving in from Alberta to be in the generally local show. “I found the application online and I figured it was an open call from anywhere,� she said.

Art from A6 able Art Gala will help get her name out there before the pieces are revealed. Spending the last two years collecting the feathers, antlers and scraps of lace she needed to build her pieces, MacKenzie said it was pretty nice to see it all come together. Reasha Wolfe has already watched her work come to life on the Kelowna stage. Last year, she brought Ancient Goddess Within up from Penticton, saying she learned a lot from the experience—both what to do and what not to do. “I basically wanted to participate this year because I learned so much last year that I felt I wanted to give it another go,” she said. Known for making big statements with her work, Wolfe said she decided to take a step back for her own mental health and go with a simple escapism theme. Fans of her work will be treated to a dragon made of tetra packs and three fairies pulled together with plastic grocery bags and newspaper clippings. t With the recycling theme and focus on nature, it is perhaps aprotpos that WAG 2011 is returning to its own roots this year as well, going back to the Mary Irwin Theatre, where it had previously sold out, and sticking with its original spring timetable.

A disappointing turnout last year got the organizers rethinking everything from the venue to the participants, event coordinator Monica McCosh said. By moving the show back to the spring from last year’s summer showing, the gallery will be able to reconnect with the university crowd and draw on the work of students who made pieces in school, rather than aiming strictly for professional artists. UBCO professor Michael V. Smith, who also launches a book this spring, will act as master of ceremonies and the university’s creative and critical studies department is sponsoring a People’s Choice Award with a cash prize of $500. Other prize sponsors include Urban Harvest’s $200 cash award; an Opus Framing & Arts Supplies package; Ballet Kelowna & the Kelowna Art Gal-

▼ OUR VIEW

Ideal of democracy is suffering

B

ritish Columbian are about to get their fill of voting in the coming months. While it may be the ultimate form of democracy in action, we all seem bored and jaded by the whole process, something that is not lost on other countries. If we can’t embrace or get excited about an election, a chance to vote, then why should a dictator-controlled country elsewhere feel the need to follow our way of choosing government. If you judge democracy by

our behaviour, by how the election process has been hijacked by voter cynicism and corporate greed, then why would any other country want to follow in our footsteps? We are all but certainly heading for a federal election in early May, likely to be called this weekend by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Beyond the widely predicted expectation of another minority government result, there will come the referendum on the HST. And then Premier Christy

Clark is hinting she will not wait until the current Liberal government’s mandate is up in 2013 to call another provincial election. These two elections and the referendum are about to cost us millions at a time when middleclass British Columbians, the fuel behind the economic engine in this country and this province, are being asked to pay more. In reality, we are paying the price for the HST not being an issue in the last provincial election, as it should have been. And the federal election is not

necessary as of yet, as neither of the political party voting options—Conservatives, Liberals or NDP—have illustrated their are deserving of a majority mandate. Why? Because we don’t trust them, a fact that or politicians continue to act oblivious to, happy to go forward on their pet ideologue issues without thinking about the best interests of all Canadians. To see a change in that attitude would be something for democracy to shout about.

Not even glitz and glam would get us to the polling booths

W

ho doesn’t love a good election? If you’re really lucky, it’s when the community’s mostly-respectable political hopefuls get cozy with their lowbrow behaviours on behalf of the alleged greater good. The Okanagan’s political process is devoid of the juiciest barbs, but scanning through a history of federal election high/lowlights, I can come up with a list of snipes and creepy commercials that made my jaw drop in a combination of horror and fascination. In many ways, the spectacle is more enjoyable than the lead-up to the Oscars, except it’s better because I actually get to take part.

For the record, however, should they ever choose to add a red carpet event to the election day process, I may just die and go to heaven. Can you imagine MP hopefuls posing for paparazzi in their formal wear? I bet Prime Minister Stephen Harper would look grand in a sash of sequins. Would you say MPs Stockwell Day and Ron Cannan are winters or autumns? Regardless, even the most apathetic may be lured to pay attention to that kind of sparkly spectacle. Well, anytime but this time. Even

the process was infused KATHARTIC if with a little glitz and

glam, I’d be less than enthused by what’s bound to come. Skipping provincial and municipal elections, Kathy this potential shemozzle Michaels will mean we’re going to the polls for the fourth time in seven years, and by my estimates that’s unseemly. For the record, I don’t care for the argument that goes something like this: “We don’t have to. The big bad Opposition just isn’t playing fair.” Everyone involved knows what’s what—it’s just unfortunate that,

somehow over the last decade, we’ve managed to elect a group of people who get off on annoying Canadians. Maybe locally, it’s because voting anything other than Conservative feels like trying to build a dam by throwing pebbles from the shore. But, even for the right wing among us, the process must be losing value. While it’s easy to be skeptical about a poor loser’s claims of foul play, some familiar with Stockwell Day’s inner circle said the recent process to fill his shoes was suspect. The Old Boy’s Club chose their man, and it’s a fait accompli that their choice will be the face of the south part of the

valley for the foreseeable future. Is that democracy? Not to jump from fashion to freedom, but come on. Around the world we’re watching countries grapple for even a pale reflection of the system we’ve benefitted from, but today we can’t muster the energy to engage in a process that’s becoming increasingly suspect. Not even a full-on fashion show could diminish the sting of that unfortunate reality. Kathy Michaels is a staff reporter for the Kelowna Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

LETTERS

▼ FEDERAL ELECTION

▼ CONSERVATIVE PRIORITIES

Blame the messenger

Fighter jets or health care

To the editor: I think that a high percentage of Canadians would agree with me that we need a “no fly zone” over Canada to stop the heavy CBC and CTV media artillery constantly

anticipating and promoting the federal election. Nothing will change except the huge waste of our taxes and the campaign nonsense to follow. L. Marguis, Westbank

To the editor: When is spending $16 billion to $32 billion on a non-competitive contract for unneeded single-engined fighter jets, a priority over more health spending grants for all our provinces’ hospitals, specialists, medicines and new procedures?

Forty new jet fighter aircraft or public health needs? This is a Conservative false pretense to be reflecting real public concerns. John O. Powell, Kelowna

▼ CARCASSES IN LANDFILL

At least the Whistler sled dogs got a burial To the editor: A store in our local mall had these post cards against the culling of the sled dogs in the not too distant past, and wanted me to sign it. If it was done humanly there is nothing wrong about it, besides the mass burial of there carcasses. So be it. My, my. We sure are easily led by the media and have such a narrow view point.

What about all the thousands of animals just thrown into the land fills under the guise of the food industry? All these small animals just killed then processed for food. If not reduced and sold before the expiry date placed on the packaging we throw it into the dump. Thousands of animals not even buried as the sled dogs were. The discarded tonnage of little animals in

to the landfills across our nation is disgraceful and wrong. Here we worry about 100 sled dogs and a mass burial. Are we so small minded? Lets go back to that hockey, baseball, movie star, music, etc. More important. right?

▼ VIVISECTION

Financial well-being of universities backed by long tradition of animal testing To the editor: I am writing in response to Hellena Pol’s letter: Animals Need Human Protection By Way Of Spay And Neuter Programs in the Friday, March 11 edition of the Capital News, and to the article published in the same issue: Animal Testing Facility Incites Heated Debate. People might wonder why I’m responding to these issues in the same letter. I am doing so because there is a definite link between animal testing and pet overpopulation. There is a very sinister reality that awaits some of the dogs and cats who, through neglect or abandonment, end up in one of Canada’s animal shelters or city pounds. In Canada, pound seizure is totally legal. This means that pets can legally be removed from shelters to be used in vivisection labs. Preference is given, too, for the friendlier, gentle animals as they will be easier to

work with. According to the 2009 statistics from the Canadian Council on Animal Care, of the 4,730 cats used in animal experimentation, 3,869 or 82 per cent of them are random sourced. This is the term used for animals obtained from shelters, etc. In the same year, 11,225 dogs were tested and 6,853, or 61 per cent, were random sourced. Most people would not be aware of the fact that animal testing is not limited to those conducted for medical, cosmetic or cleaning products. Does the average Canadian know more than 250 million animals are killed in Canada’s vivisection labs every year. If animal experimentation is of such questionable value, why does it persist? There are several likely explanations: Vivisection is easily published. In the “publish or perish” world of academic science, it requires little originality or

insight to take an already well-defined animal model, change a variable (or the species being used), and obtain “new” and “interesting” findings within a short period of time. In contrast, clinical research (while much more useful) is often more difficult and time-consuming. Also, the many species available and the nearly infinite possible manipulations offer researchers the opportunity to “prove” almost any theory that serves their economic, professional, or political needs. For example, researchers have “proven” in animals that cigarettes both do and do not cause cancer—depending on the funding source. Vivisection is selfperpetuating. Scientists’ salaries and professional status are often tied to grants, and a critical element of success in grant applications is proof of prior experience and expertise. Researchers trained in animal research techniques find it difficult

If caring for a family pet is too difficult or expensive–don’t get one To the editor: Re: Hellena Pol’s letter to the editor March 11, (Animals Need Human Protection By Way Of Spay And Neuter Programs), I have two even simpler and cheaper solutions to the problem. 1. Cat owners should keep their cats inside or in their own yards, and not allow them to roam “at large.”

2. This one is easier than family planning. If you think it is too much of a bother to take responsibility for a cat’s whereabouts, and you cannot afford a spay or neuter fee, make a conscious choice— don’t get one. Lynda Zorn Kelowna

or inconvenient to adopt new methods, such as tissue cultures. Vivisection appears more “scientific” than clinical research. Researchers often assert that laboratory experiments are “controlled,” because they can change one variable at a time. The control, however, is illusory. Any animal model differs in myriad ways from human physiology and pathology. In addition, the laboratory setting itself creates confounding variables; for example, stress and undesired or unrecognized pathology in the animals. Such variables can have system-wide effects, skew experimental results and undermine extrapolation of findings to humans. Vivisection is lucrative. Its traditionally respected place in modern

medicine results in secure financial support, which is often an integral component of a university’s budget. Many medical centers receive tens of millions of dollars annually in direct grants for animal research, and tens of millions more for overhead costs that are supposedly related to that research. Since these medical centers depend on this overhead for much of their administrative costs, construction, and building maintenance, they perpetuate vivisection by praising it in the media and to legislators. I appreciate the work and persistence of Lindsay Diehl and professor Jodey Castricano in bringing this issue to the public domain. Jan Dawson, Kelowna

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele in rather than fighting against them. I quickly understood that by following the seven principles of xeriscape, I could indeed get amazing results for my time and money. Looking at the pictures, I realized I could have a beautiful waterconserving garden in almost any style that took my fancy, from an English Country Garden to a Mediterranean style, a native plant garden or beautiful, easy-care ground covers. There were many wonderful plants to choose from, including old favourites as well as many that were new to me. I was hooked on this new idea. As I experimented with plants and these new gardening principles, I got very excited. This led to a move to a small acreage in North Glenmore to start a plant

nursery. Using the principles of xeriscape, we created large testing and demonstration gardens. I planted hundreds of varieties of plants to test how little water they needed to thrive. The results were amazing. You’ll learn more about these plants and about xeriscape by reading my new column in the Capital News.

To register for my next xeriscape classes, beginning April 6, April 20 or May 4, go to www.okanaganxeriscape.org. Gwen Steele is executive director of the nonprofit Okanagan Xeriscape Association.

magine you have a beautiful landscape around your home, but one which costs you less time and money to maintain than your neighbours’ expanses of lawn. Impossible, you think? Make a habit of reading this column and I’ll tell you how. I’ve gardened all my life in Kelowna. While I love to garden for hours on end, I’m also a lazy gardener. I want to get the utmost results for my effort and money. In 1992, when I began working at Burnett’s Nursery, I was constantly asked what would grow in a dry sunny place with little water. My only gardening book was Sunset Western Gardening. It had a onepage list of such plants, but most of them were not hardy in the Okanagan. I went looking for more. At the library, I found Taylor’s Guide to Water Saving Gardening. This book not only changed my way of gardening, it transformed my life. In it I discovered the term xeriscape, which means gardening with the natural environmental conditions you live

Land gift provides long-term legacy Bequest from A1 pressed an interest in bequeathing the land to the local land trust when it was first created by the Central Okanagan Foundation in the early 1990s. The first parcel of 65 ha was given to the trust in 2002, after her death, and a second parcel of 32 ha in 2003 and 2004. Both are on longterm lease as parkland to the Central Okanagan Regional District. The pair requested that the gift of land not be made public until after their deaths. The property includes a natural spring, wetland, grasslands and some old trees around the house that remain from the 2003 wildfire. Much of the property today is grassland, although an investment of $25,000, including funds from the Tree Canada Foundation, was made toward reforestation of the property following the wildfire. Westheuser said Bertram Creek runs along the edge of the property and it is home to bears, deer, moose, coyotes, marmots, and all manner of other

Alf Johns creatures, including lots of birds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the largest gift the local land trust has yet received, he noted. Regional district chairman Robert Hobson said the gift of natural landscape will make a tremendous contribution to conservation in the Central Okanagan. The first piece included a portion of the Kelowna Crags, which are of great interest to climbers, he noted, and the others are in proximity to Okanagan Mountain Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long-term legacy and will be a wonderful asset for our kids and grandkids,â&#x20AC;? he acknow-

ledged. It will provide access to an area of natural Okanagan environment for future generations, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful addition to our regional parks system.â&#x20AC;? Brenda and Gifford Thomson raised their family next door to the Johnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farm on Swamp Road, and Brenda says there were four youngstersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sid, Alf, Nancy and Rosemary. Their father, Hector Johns, moved west from Ontario, working in logging camps, and arrived in the Central Okanagan in 1909where he started out by logging on the Westside. He met his wife Elizabeth here, and the couple bought the Swamp Road property in 1928 and operated a cattle and hay operation while raising their four children. When Alf returned from the Second World War, he and Nancy took over the family farm, and after their parents died, they sold the property and moved up the hill, building a home there, where Alf died last week, Thomson said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Boxing Day we would go up the hill for a visit. We often had to hike up because the road was so bad,â&#x20AC;? she remembered. She says Alf seemed to live a charmed life. First, he was blown up in a tank in the Second World War, and spent a lot of time convalescing in Britain before he returned home. Then he survived the 2003 wildfire which blew through his property. Her son, Colin Thomson, and a friend were putting up sprinklers at his home after the fire went through the property the first time, when it was turned by strong winds and came back. They narrowly escaped, she said. Then in very strong winds a few years ago, a large tree fell on his house, and he barely escaped. Finally, his ATV tipped over in the snow and he was just lucky someone found him before hypothermia claimed his life. He had to be removed by helicopter. Thomson says Alf was a real history buff and both he and Nancy were great canoeists and outdoors people.

Third assault complaint revealed Assault from A1 behaviour that falls well short of any expectations that I or any officers have.” That said, police are often in the throes of stressful situations and those kinds of interactions can lead to conflict, he said, explaining why Const. Mantler was still working as a police officer after complaints against him

were originally lodged. “It happens, but it’s not very common based on the number of interactions with the number of people,” he said. Mantler has been suspended with pay, which is also an issue that’s gained a great deal of attention. That, however, could come to an end in the near future, Hourihan indicated “Our process requires

that they get suspended with pay,” he said, noting a determination as to whether that will continue “will be made fairly shortly.” Mantler is scheduled to make an appearance on both charges in provincial court on April. 26. The charge assessment review of these two investigative reports was conducted in the Kamloops Regional Crown Counsel

office. In a related matter, an investigation into a complaint from the B.C. Civil Liberties Association found there was no wrongdoing on the part of Kelowna RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon in the way he dispersed information related to the Buddy Tavares case. kmichaels @kelownacapnews.com

Gaming grant money will help PACs Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A $15-million funding announcement, which will restore a portion of the gaming grants to many community and sports organizations aimed at helping children, is great news from the school district’s perspective. With word Premier

Christy Clark was making good on promises to restore some of the gaming grants on Thursday, school district superintendent Hugh Gloster said he was pleased with the news and believes the money will go a long way to supporting local kids. Part of the announcement includes an additional $5 per student to go

to Parent Advisory Councils, for a total of $20. “Obviously, the addition of $5 to support K-12 students…it’s something that goes a long way to PACs being able to help schools with different field trips,” said Gloster. More importantly, he pointed to funding that will go to the community to support programs di-

rected at underprivileged kids as a support that’s badly needed. From extra funding for scouting and cadet-type programs to money for kids sports, food banks, and housing, the government made it clear the focus is on children. Adult sports and arts programs appear to have been left out of the loop.

Daycare funding boost eases transition to full-day kindergarten

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

Twenty-nine licensed child-care providers in Kelowna, Westbank and Lake Country will share a total of $39,400 in bonus funding this spring provided by the provincial government. This one-time funding boost for licensed group child-care (30 months to school-age) providers is to help day cares during the transition period associated with the implementation of full-day kindergarten this fall. It is anticipated that this license category may be impacted by a lower enrolment in their childcare facilities as a result of more five-year-olds attending full-day kindergarten come September. Child care providers can use this funding to assist with the cost of providing quality child care services to purchase items that enhance developmental opportunities for younger learners. This may include purchasing books, toys, arts and crafts supplies and other educational items, as well as minor capital enhancements to improve the quality of the facility (e.g., equipment or furniture).

Senior driver to face trial for accident fatality Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

An elderly man allegedly behind the wheel when a teenaged girl was struck and killed last year,

will have to wait another year before he goes to trial. George Kozub, 80, was charged back in October with the Motor Vehicle Act offence of driv-

ing without due care and attention in relation to the crash that killed 15-yearold Josie Evans. On Friday, his trial dates were scheduled. His three-day trial is

set for March 2012 and will centre around the events of Jan. 13, 2010. Around 4:30 p.m. that day, Kozub was alleged to have been driving on Bottom Wood Lake Road

Make your step the one that ends multiple sclerosis.

Kelowna Kinsmen Fieldhouse at Mission Sports Field Sunday, May 1, 2011

near Mayrus Road when Evans, clad in dark clothing, was struck from behind as she walked in the same direction as traffic along the roadway, which didn’t have a sidewalk. At the time, police said visibility was “extremely poor” as it was raining heavily and there were no street lights to illuminate the area. The death of the George Elliot Secondary student prompted calls for

road improvements in the area. In the months following her passing, the speed limit in front of the Lake Country high school was reduced, fog lines were repainted and crosswalks were painted where sidewalks end to encourage students to walk facing traffic. The District of Lake Country also says they have been pursuing grants to improve safety on the

Josie Evans area roads. As well, Lodge Road, also popular with students walking in the area, is expected to be reconstructed this year.

Family culture’s influence on post-secondary choices W

hen you read about who goes to college and university and who doesn’t, you often hear how hard it is for poor people to get a post-secondary education. Often you assume this is because they don’t have enough money to pay for tuition and books. Yet there are a lot of middle-class kids who don’t have money for tuition and books either, but they manage to enrol. There are many theories that try to explain this phenomena. The most interesting one I’ve come across refers to a concept called “cultural capital.” This idea suggests that the socioeconomic culture that a person is exposed to at an early age will not only determine whether they attend college

or university, but will also affect the school they decide to enrol in. For example, theorists hold that students from high socioeconomic classes (esJane pecially in the United Muskens States, where most of this research is completed) will opt for Ivy League schools with high price tags because this is part of their culture. Their home and community environments shape this choice process. Their parents most likely went to the same type of school and they probably attend a private preparatory school which is connected to a number of Ivy League universities. Whether the students realize it or not, they are expected to graduate from the right school to meet family and societal expectations.

Even though they have the economic capital to attend any school they want, it is their culture that will drive their college choice process. The flip side of this is that someone from a middle or lower-middleclass family may see themselves as not entitled to the same type of education. This even occurs in Canada where our post-secondary education system consists of mainly public colleges and universities, and where tuition fees are about the same across the country. Although I don’t have Canadian statistics to substantiate the correlation between socio-economic culture and college choice, I suspect that many rich Canadian families send their children to Ivy League schools in the United States. I also suspect that families with high incomes can afford to send their children to any university in the coun-

try regardless of where that school is located. For example, I have a friend whose father was an English professor at Simon Fraser University and his mother was a doctor. He went to Queens University in Kingston Ontario for all his degrees (he has a PhD) because the expectation of his family was that you went back East for your university education. To him, this was what he was expected to do regardless of being able to complete that same credential in B.C. It is the middle- to low-income students who really have to consider their options and will likely study closer to home because they can’t afford to go anywhere else and according to college choice theories they don’t see themselves as entitled to more than that. Their economic capital as well as their culture will influence that col-

lege choice process where they are expected to enrol in a program or school that is affordable and gets them back into the workforce as quickly as possible. The sad part of all of this is that some students from low-income families may not see themselves entitled to a post-secondary education at all. They may come from a culture that demands they enter the workforce as quickly as possible to help support the family. What this all boils down to is the college choice process is quite complicated. It doesn’t always come down to high grades in high school. It may come down to fitting into the right college or university environment depending on your socio-economic background.

SPORTS ▼ WHL PLAYOFFS

Playoff atmosphere makes it ‘a new game’ Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Mitchell Callahan remembers vividly the nerves and anticipation he felt prior to his first major junior playoff game with the Kelowna Rockets two years ago. So the hard-nosed forward knows from experience what his rookie teammates must be feeling on the cusp of the Western Hockey League post season. “I’m still feeling some nerves and I’ve been through this twice before,” Callahan said with a laugh. “The playoffs are a new game, a different atmosphere, the game is faster and more physical, and there’s a lot on the line every shift. “I know it’s exciting for our younger guys, it’s going to be a little bit new to them and there’s going to be nerves…but I think they’ll be well prepared. This is what you play for all season.” Of the 25 Rockets currently with the club, nine have no previous WHL playoff experience. Among the first-timers is rookie sniper Zach

Franko, who has been anxiously awaiting his first foray into the WHL playoffs. “All of us (rookies) are looking forward to this, it’s a huge step in our careers, none of us have been through anything quite like this,” said Franko, a 22-goal scorer this season. “The place will be rocking, the stakes will be high, but when the time comes we’ll need to be focused. The young guys will have to help out just as much as other guys on the team. “The coaches have prepared us well and if we stick to that, then the same things we were doing in the regular season should work in the playoffs.” While more than a third of the team is devoid of any WHL playoff experience, there is a solid contingent of Rockets who are battle-tested in the post-season. Tyson Barrie, Geordie Wudrick, and Evan Bloodoff each have 41 games under their belts, Callahan has played in 34, while Spencer Main carries with him 24 games of playoff experience. Rockets assistant Ryan

Cuthbert said it will be up to the club’s leaders to set the tone and example for the Rockets “The veterans are the guys who are responsible for getting everybody going and all pulling in the same direction,” said Cuthbert. “Whether it’s on the ice, in the room, on the bus, those are the guys that show the way things are done. If they’re preparing the right way and doing the right things, then the young guys will feed off that and follow that. At this time of year, it’s the mistakes that kill you, so preparation is key.” Those fledgling Rockets can also lean on the coaches for support, a staff that has experienced more than its share of playoff hockey over the years. Head man Ryan Huska won three Memorial Cups as a player and has coached at four more CHL championships. Assistant Dan Lambert won a Memorial Cup in 1989, while Cuthbert has 45 games of post-season savvy under his belt, including a 2003 WHL championship with the Rockets. From Cuthbert’s perspective, striking a bal-

game, the first 10 minutes is always very important to get out there feeling good about your game and the team’s game.” Games 1 and 2 of the Rockets-Prince George series will be played Friday and Saturday at Pros-j pera Place. Games 3 and 4 will go Tuesday and Wednesday in Prince George.

BLOODOFF TO SIT FOUR

MARISSA BAECKER/CONTRIBUTOR

ROOKIE FORWARD Zach Franko is one of nine players currently with the Rockets who are without previous WHL playoff experience. ance between being relaxed while still playing with intensity, is key for the Rockets newcomers.

“I think we as coaches have to keep it calm on the bench and in the room,” said Cuthbert. “And as a

player it’s the same story, you can’t get too high or too low. It’s a matter of getting settled into the

Veteran forward Evan Bloodoff will miss the first four games of the 2011 Western Hockey League playoffs. The league suspended the 20-year-old Bloodoff Tuesday for his actions in last Saturday’s 4-3 home ice loss to the Vancouver Giants. Bloodoff was assessed a major and a game misconduct for a charging penalty after leaping into Giants’ defenceman Joel Rogers along the endboards. Rogers, who was taken from the ice by stretcher, is currently sidelined with a concussion. Bloodoff will be eligible for Game 5 of the Rockets first-round playoff series with Prince George.

Barrie returns as WHL’s defenceman of the year finalist For the second straight year, Kelowna Rockets captain Tyson Barrie is the Western Conference’s nominee for the WHL’s defenceman of the year. The 19-year-old Victoria native won the award in 2009-10 after scoring 19 goals and 72 points in 63 games.

This season, Barrie scored 11 goals and added 47 assists in 54 games for the Rockets. Barrie’s importance to his club was undeniable as the Rockets posted a pedestrian 8-10 record without the 5-foot-10 rearguard in the lineup. With him in uniform,

Kelowna was 35-18-0-1. “There’s no doubt he’s an elite defenceman in this league,” said Rockets assistant coach Dan Lambert. “He missed quite a few games with injury and when he was at the world juniors, and our record without him showed just how valuable he is.

Tyson has had another excellent year.” In addition to the nomination, Barrie was named to the Western Conference’s first all-star team. The other Western Conference award finalists are: Rookie of the year— Sven Bartschi, Portland

Keca strikes gold at Canadian age class short track championship Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

You might call Jesse Keca a ground breaker— or perhaps an icebreaker—for the sport of speed skating in Kelowna. The Grade 10 student from Okanagan Mission Secondary is the first member of the Kelowna Speed Skating Club ever to win a national title. Keca, 16, won the overall gold medal in the junior girls B division (15-16 years) at the Canadian Age Class short track speed skating championships last weekend in Montreal. Keca took top spot in tboth the 500 and 1,500 metre events, while adding a silver in the 3000m points race to place first overall. f The medals were the result of countless hours of training for Keca, who rwas accompanied to nationals last week by her dad, Nik. “It really means a lot to me,” said Keca, who is enjoying a family vacation this week in Ontario.

FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

KELOWNA’S Jesse Keca, 16, won the national junior

short track speed skating title last weekend in Montreal. “It was pretty exciting to have dad their with me, he’s been so supportive. Seeing all the hard work I’ve put into it pay off was really nice, too.” Keca, who is also a midget rep hockey player in Kelowna, has shown consistent improvement since taking up speed skating five years ago. Okanagan Regional Training Centre coach Nancy Goplen said the

national short track medals were significant accomplishments for both Keca and the local club. “While we have national calibre long track skaters such as Keara Maguire, Alison Banwell and Nicholas Goplen, a win at the national short track level indicates the depth and strength of our club program and the Okanagan Regional Training Centre,” said Goplen. “Over

the past season, Jesse has demonstrated the physical and mental skills to take her to the highest level. Like our long track specialists, Jesse will be a leader and inspiration to other club members. No doubt, we will hear more from Jesse and our other club skaters.” Keca established herself as an up-and-comer on the national scene earlier this season at the Canada Winter Games in Halifax where she finished in sixth place. Only 15 at the time of the competition, Keca was competing in the U19 div-

ision and was the youngest skater to crack the top 10. As for her long-term future in the sport and potential national and international events, Keca prefers not to look too far ahead. “I can see myself wanting to compete at a high level in the future, but right now I’m trying not to think too much about the results,” she said. “I’m just trying to enjoy this and hopefully I’ll keep improving.” As for other Kelowna skaters, Keara Maguire and Nick Goplen finished

their respective long track seasons at the Canada Cup Finale in Calgary last weekend. Keara sixth in the 3000m setting a new personal best by nearly four seconds with a time 4:17.60 In the 5000m, she was fifth overall with a new time of 7:23.16 (old time 7:25.44). Goplen placed 29th in the 500m in a field of 84 with a new time of 38.08 (old time 38.28), 20th in the 1000m in a field of 70 with a new time of 1:14.27 (old time 1:15.01) and 18th in the 1500m in a field of 84 with a new time of 1:52.96 (old

time 1:53.59). Both skaters will take a few weeks off before resuming their dry land training.

Short Track Championships to earn the right to represent the province. Admission is free with racing between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. both on Saturday and Sunday.

▼ RUGBY

Crows travel to Alberni The Kelowna Crows first and second division teams will be in Port Alberni on Saturday afternoon for B.C. Rugby spring action. The Crows opened the five-game Province League schedule last weekend with a pair of losses on the road to United RFC. The Crows 1sts were competitive with United RFC to the midway point of the second half on Saturday, but a late scoring spree by the opponents left the Kelowna team on the wrong side of a 44-20 loss. The locals fell behind 13-3 early, apparently still

shaking off the early morning road journey. After United’s second try, the Crows took control of the game, with Rich Brewer scored a try, penalty kick and conversion and the Crows trailed 13-10 at the break. Judah Campbell scored an unconverted try early in the second half, putting the Crows into the lead for the first time 15-13. United RFC responded fiercely, unleashing an outside attack that Kelowna was unable to contain. After five unanswered United RFC tries, Kelowna’s Ryan Sousa scored late to close out the scoring.

The Crows 2nd team was in tough against the United RFC 2nds, losing 47-6 in the second match of the day. Grady Krohman kicked two penalty kicks for Kelowna. Assistant Coach Barry Ebl said he realized that United was likely going to be very tough competition in the spring league. “United has three solid teams, and they have been getting stronger since we defeated them last year,” said Ebl. “We hope to be much more competitive in the remaining four games of the spring league.” The Crows next home action is Saturday, April 2 against Langley.

Karl Donoghue (70-74), also from Penticton, ranks third in the 50m and 100m and second in

the 200m backstroke. Kelowna resident Conny Stamhuis (75-79) put in a stellar achievement with an eighth-place showing in the 100m and sixth place in the 200m backstroke. Kelowna’s English Channel conqueror, Brent Hobbs, showed that his long hours of training paid off when he ranked eighth in the 1500m freestyle. All of these rankings were achieved in a long-course (50m) swimming pool. Fédération Internatio-

â&#x2013;ź CONDO LIVING

New CHOA office in Kelowna likely to be a busy place

A

rmed with a good sense of humour and a suitcase full of experience, Bill Miller is well equipped to deal with the demands of providing advice to the strata community. As the new Kelowna-based representative for the Condominium Home Owners Association of B.C., Miller is daily called upon to serve up solutions to solve a myriad of issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody calls me up for a game of golf,â&#x20AC;? said the affable Miller. Indeed. Almost all of the calls to the recently opened Kelowna CHOA office have more to do with headaches, hassles, problems, conflict and the intricacies of complex strata legislation, than enjoying a round on the links. Signifying the emergence of Kelowna as B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condo capital outside of the Lower Mainland, the city was chosen as the location for a full-time office last fall to

STRATA SCENE

Gunnar Forsstrom service the Interior after years of a part-time presence in Penticton. Miller has 20 years experience as a strata owner, council president, strata manager, past member of CHOAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors and previous president of the provincial organization. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a leaky condo survivor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the job,â&#x20AC;? he said, unable to conceal the passion he brings to the office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often emotions get in the way and I remain professional to assist to resolve conflict and get business done.â&#x20AC;? Despite his humourous disposition, it is clear that Miller takes a no nonsense approach to the business.

The Strata Property Act does not provide for any easier mechanism to deal with condominium conflict outside of appealing to the Supreme Court of B.C. or arbitration. The province is currently reviewing alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. However, it is not known what that would look like until the regulation is drafted. CHOA is a non-profit association that promotes the understanding of strata property living and the interests of strata property owners by providing advisory services, education, advocacy, publications and support for its members. Its mandate is assist members, and the strata industry, to ensure strata living is a positive experience. Membership in CHOA is available to any residential or commercial strata corporation (or individual Owner). Strata corporations may be mixed commer-

cial/residential, high-rise condominiums, leasehold stratas, townhouses, bare land stratas, duplexes, or any variety of strata corporations under the current legislation in B.C. If a strata corporation is a member, anyone who owns a unit within the corporation may access the services of the Association. All member council members and owners may access CHOAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisory services, publications, the CHOA journal, resources, seminars and workshops at reduced member costs. Non-member corporations or owners may also access these services. At the conclusion of our meeting, I asked Miller if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to play a round of golf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even play golf,â&#x20AC;? he said with a smile. And by the sounds of it he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taking up the game any time soon. Bill Miller can be contacted at 250-868-1195.

Put financial noose on the kids W

hen I turn 65, I will be lounging under a palm tree, sipping a chilly Margarita and gazing at the warm, ocean waves lapping up on the soft, sandy shore. It doesn’t matter which beach. It doesn’t matter which country. As long as there is heat and happy hour, that will be my retirement. Oh, I may go for a round of golf or a swim if it’s too hot. I’ll have a pile of really meaty books to read. Maybe I’ll do a Sudoku if I feel so inclined. No, maybe just a snooze. It’s been a tough day. This retirement package will all be courtesy of my beloved children. They have no idea at this point. They’re not even out of school yet. But, when I need cash

NUTSHELL

Shelley Nicholl to keep me in the lifestyle I imagine, I’m counting on them to support me. I figure if I supported them until adulthood, they should support me in my post-adulthood. I won’t make them drive me places, unless the Margaritas take control. I won’t make them enrol me in activities or make my lunch every day. They’re getting off pretty easy if you ask me. I just want their money. Now, I know what you’re thinking—Shelley, it sounds like you’ve already been in the sun too long and have a few te-

quilas under your belt. Children don’t look after their parents. It’s a one-way street. You support them until they’re out of university and then a few years later you get to babysit the grandchildren. That’s how it works. So, it’s a long-shot, right? Maybe, one in 10,000? One in a million? Well, don’t blow off the child-meal-ticket thought completely. It’s not as silly as you think. Even sillier, fully 32 per cent of us think we’re going to fund our retirement with a big lottery ticket win, according to a Canadian poll mentioned in Maclean’s. What are the odds of that happening—one in 85 million. My plan doesn’t seem so ridiculous now, does it? I thought maybe the people who were polled were just having some fun

and said they were banking on the lottery instead of an RSP. Maybe some were, but it would still be an astonishingly large number if that figure were two per cent. Why would anyone count on bad odds to fund their post-working life? As noted in the article, it’s blind hope. For some, that’s all there is. As I edge a tad closer to retirement every day, I think about how I’ll manage. It’s not easy because no matter how sound things look, anything can happen. The economy could…oh, I don’t know…collapse or something. How many people had their retirement savings carved down by at least one-third in only a few months? Years of saving, gone. You can’t rely on anything. Real estate could go through the roof or plunge just when you’re counting on turning it into retirement dough. Even your company pension may be in limbo; it’s invested like everything else. Will we still have CPP when the last of the baby boomers go through? There’s a lot of uncertainty out there. Add on the fact that we live longer and retire sooner. We used to work until we were 65 and then have five to 10 years to frolic about. Now, we retire closer to 55 and head on out into workless bliss until we’re past 80. We need to fund more years. We need more money. So, snapping up a few lottery tickets along the way may be as good a chance as any of living an elderly life of luxury. I’m still counting on my children. I’ll educate them and make sure they seek high-paying jobs. I’ll never let them forget how much I’ve sacrificed for them. They’ll be devoted to me. You’ll see. I’ll be cracking open my cheque from them every month in Tahiti. Oh, who am I kidding? When’s the next 6/49? Shelley Nicholl owns Mad Squid Ink, a professional writing service. madsquid@shaw.ca

Thrilled to be in Best New Artist category Learn to work with Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

While most musicians seeking a career in music need to hit the bigger markets—like Vancouver or Calgary—24-year-old Thomas Kjorven has done the opposite, choosing to make the move from the Coast to Kelowna. And it doesn’t seem to have hurt him much. “It’s been really great here,” said Kjorven, who is nominated for three BC Interior Music Awards. Kjorven arrived in time to see BreakOut West and the Western Canadian Music Awards played out on Kelowna’s streets last year. But he didn’t apply to participate, hoping to make his debut when Whitehorse, Yukon hosts BreakOut West this year. He doesn’t find out about that opportunity for a while yet, but when the call came in late Tuesday evening to hustle down to the Kelowna Community Theatre the next day to find out about the BCIMA nominations, he was one of the first on hand to hear his name called in the Best New Artist category. “New artist is always the really exciting one,” said organizer Shelley Vida, noting there’s an ex-

volunteers effectively

tra nominee this year. It is the only category to get four nominees, instead of three, simply because the judges couldn’t whittle the pack any further.

Dawn Wilkinson CONTRIBUTOR

‘‘

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT PEOPLE SEE I’M HERE AND I’M WORKING…

No matter what happens between him and those other three up-andcomers though, Kjorven said the nomination will help him immensely. “It’s great for a few things. One is just credibility. This is something that people see I’m here and I’m working…” he said. While he couldn’t finish the sentence mid-press conference, organizers have consistently pointed to several spin-off benefits the artists who win will enjoy. Not only do they play for local crowds, but they are also going to be performing before several industry insiders with ties to festivals throughout the area, including Festivals Kelowna, Funtastic, Drift-

That should mean more gigs, more exposure, and possibly a move up to the WCMAs, for those who are not already rolling in those circles. In the meantime, organizers for the BCIMA show are expecting it will likely sell out, particularly given the success of

BreakOut West. Performances will include Juno Award winner Greg Sczebel, Darby Mills (with a rock collaboration), Aiden Mayes and Ari Neufeld, Adham Shaik (with a First Nation’s collaboration), Leah West, Kira Gosselin and Miss Quincy. The other nominees for New Artist of the Year include Devon Coyote,

Nixie and Kate Morgan. Astral Media is supporting the People’s Choice category through an online category on their websites. The nominees include Dominique Fraissard, Jodi Pederson, Kira Gosselin, Leah West, Sasha Lewis and Trinity’s Tattoo. For the full list of nominees visit www.kelownacapnews.com.

Are you helping to organize volunteers and wonder if there is a better way to do it? Do you have challenges recruiting and keeping volunteers? Need some ideas? Why not sign up for our Overview of Management workshop? In a group of eight to 12 people, you can share experiences and gain knowledge about best practices in the field of volunteering. Each of the four days of this workshop is taught by a different volunteer manager. The diversity of their experience broadens and deepens your learning. They are local so that you can seek their counsel afterwards as well. This workshop is practical and hands on. A full range of forms, checklists and other tools are provided so that you can plan, oversee and evaluate any size of volunteer program at any stage of development. So, what will you learn? On the first day, you will learn how volunteer and donation trends impact your plans to recruit people. A communication module will sharpen your one-on-one inter-

actions. Day two will involve you in budgeting, record keeping and drafting position descriptions. By day three, you move on to screening volunteers, managing risk and training volunteers using all types of adult learning styles. The final day allows you to focus on supervising, dismissing difficult volunteers, recognizing successful volunteer contributions, dealing with staff and volunteer relations, and evaluating your program in a variety of ways. When is it? Where do j you sign up? The workshop will run Mondays and Tuesdays, April 4, 5, 11 and 12, 2011 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We meet at Kelowna Community Resources, 120-1735 Dolphin Ave. The cost is $199. Sign up by calling 250-763-8008 extension 25 or emailing dawn@kcr.ca. Look for online volunteer opportunities in the Central Okanagan and create your own volunteer profile at kcr.ca.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis Set in the 1950s, it is the story of a young girl, institutionalized by her step-father, who must escape from the asylum before she is lobotomized. Determined to fight for her freedom, she uses her imagination to blur the lines between reality and fantasy. She urges four other young girls to join her in her fantastical war against everything from samurai to serpents in order to win their freedom. Starring Emily Browning (Lemony Snicket), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Jena Malone (Donnie Darko), Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Jamie Chung (Grown Ups), Carla Gugino (Watchmen), Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Scott Glenn (Secretariat). Rated 14A with a warning of violence. If you were a fan of Quentin Tarantino’s and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse double feature, you will want to see Hobo with A Shotgun.

It is the second of the fake trailers to be made into a feature, the first being Rodriquez’s Machete. Rated 18A with a warning of explicit violence, Hobo with A Shotgun’s plot is as cheesy as its title, with Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) starring as a homeless man with dreams of buying a lawnmower, but ends up becoming a violent shotgun-wielding vigilante, pitting himself against a crime-stricken city. However, since its premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, it has been getting better reviews than its brethren created by modern Grindhouse godfathers Tarantino and Rodriguez. In March of last year, Diary of Wimpy Kid opened in the number two spot behind Alice in Wonderland, and although it

was far from a blockbuster, its gross quintupled its production budget so a sequel was announced. Cameras rolled from late summer into fall last year in New Westminster and Vancouver on Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules and is based upon the second book of author Jeff Kinney’s series of the same name. It continues the story of Greg Heffley who is now in grade seven and must deal with the emotional turmoil of school, but most prominently, he must endure the punishments of his older brother Rodrick. Most of the original cast has returned, including Zachary Gordon as Greg, Devon Bostick as Rodrick and Steve Zahn as the boys’ father. Rated general with no warning. Probably the world’s most famous opera, Carmen has had a 3D make-

It is showing Saturday morning at the Capitol Theatre, West Kelowna, and Saturday and Sunday at the Grand 10 in Kelowna. Check www.landmarkcinemas.ca for showtimes. And the final movie in the Capitol Theatre’s Filmtastic Film Festival shows next Thursday at 7 p.m. It is the epic World War II drama The Way Back starring Ed Harris, Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess and directed by Peter Weir.

Tree Brewing celebrates 15 years

A

s many winemakers will tell you, “it takes a lot of beer to make good wine” and our local winemakers need not go far because we have a brewery just up the road to draw from—Tree Brewing. Located next to Calona Wines in downtown

Kelowna, Tree Brewing has been making its award winning handcrafted beer since 1996. To celebrate their 15year anniversary this year, Tree has introduced a new custom-designed bottle. Brewery president Tod Melnyk says, “We needed to do something that really conveys how different

FOOD & WINE TRAILS

Jennifer Schell we are.” This super sleek new

look features an embossed Tree Brewing Co. logo and we love that they are fully recyclable and re-useable. Tree makes its beers in small batches and uses just water, malt, hops and yeast, making them all natural and unpasteurized. With some fun names in their repertoire, they make a wide range of artisan brews. Choose from Hop Head India Pale Ale, Thirsty Beaver Amber Ale, Cutthroat West Coast Pale Ale, Kelowna Pilsner and Spy Porter. The Raspberry Porter is also a special brew—a dark English Style Ale, it exhibits light chocolate tones on the palette with, of course, that zing of raspberry. Sure to be a hit with the guys this summer, don’t miss the sexy, fun label on the Beach Blonde Lager. New for this spring, this lager is available in six-pack cans. Tree says that it was “brewed exclusively for the hot summers of the Okanagan” and we found that it made the perfect pairing for beer can chicken. Tree is now offering a delicious line of food

products too. Enjoy the Stoned Mustard, Blasted Barbecue Sauce, Beer Barrel Peach Salsa, Hopped Pepper Jelly and Butter Chicken smokies infused with the rich flavour of the HopHead India Pale Ale. All are made with Tree beer and were created by Okanagan Specialty Foods. Pop in to the brewery and load up with a basket full of all of their treats— these will make perfect summer hostess gifts too.

And make sure to include the brewery on your wine tour list this summer. Tree is another local company to be proud of and great to show off to your guests. They offer kegs for sale too—hello barbecue party! Also available at the liquor store, but it’s more fun to visit the brewery at 1083 Richter St. Tastings from 11 to 5 daily—call for tour times. www.treebeer.com. You can also have

the chance to taste their hoppy wares at the Taste of Kelowna this Sunday March 27. Pop by my Food & Wine Trails Magazine booth to say hello and pick up a free copy of the new issue.

have supported our forestry and agriculture sectors. Local municipalities would have been able to count on more funds targeted for community infrastructure projects and a permanent gas tax fund which would have made long term infrastructure planning possible. Moreover, the budget would have built on our efforts to protect the financial security of families and individuals including personal income tax savings of more than $3,000 for the average family of four, a $1,200 per year child care benefit and pension income splitting for seniors. The tabled budget also renewed our commitment to eliminate the federal deficit in three years and to pay down the national debt, while protecting critical funding to the provinces for health care and social programs. Far from being out of touch with ordinary Canadians, the initiatives contained in the budget were the direct result of the pre-budget consultations with ordinary Canadians including consultations here in Kelowna and Lake Country. As with all previous federal budgets under the Conservative government, you came forward with your priorities and offered sensible, practical solutions to strengthen the economy. By listening to you, our Conservative government has delivered a great deal for Kelowna-Lake Country constituents— the Highway 97 expansion, a passport office, support for our fruit growers, funding for seniors’ housing and senior community programs, affordable housing, funding for homelessness and youth at risk, small business support, local green initiatives, parks and pathways, transit expansion, arts and culture and support for community crime initiatives like the Organized Crime Task Force.

he federal budget of 2011, tabled earlier this week, was designed as a low tax plan aimed at jobs and growth. It contained targeted spending measures toward those who needed it, while maintaining the necessary fiscal restraint required during tough economic times. But the Liberal Party, the New Democratic Party and the Bloc Quebecois have each said they will not support the budget, claiming it is out of touch with ordinary Canadians.

Lincoln MKX excels in all premium CUV facets Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

I remember a few years ago asking the president of another domestic car company if he could name the six models in the Lincoln lineup and the best he could do was four. Sadly Lincoln languished for years until Ford, sensing what was coming with the fiscal meltdown in 2009, pulled up its corporate socks. That good timing resulted in what we now see as great new offerings like the Fiesta and Focus in the pipeline just as the collapse hit crippling the other domestics. Helping carry Ford

through the crisis were its two excellent CUVs, the Ford Edge and the Lincoln MKX. With Ford now setting sales records and riding high in the esteem of consumers comes the 2011 Lincoln MKX with so many improvements, it’s like a whole new model. Now standard on the MKX is a 3.7-litre V6 with variable valve timing producing 305 hp, 40 more hp than the V6 it replaces while torque is increased to 280 lb/ft, 12 per cent more than the outgoing V6. Even with standard all-wheel-drive, which normally saps some fuel economy, Lincoln claims best in segment mileage of

AdvanceTrac also incorporates Roll Stability Control as well for hill start assist, anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitoring. A safety feature one normally doesn’t think about is Adaptive Cruise Control that Lincoln makes optional on the MKX. It lets the driver select one of four gaps between the MKX and the vehicle ahead. At 100 km/h for example, the gaps are 28 meters (sporty driving), 42 or 53 meters (normal driving) and 64 meters (comfort driving). Radar sensors in the grille track the vehicle ahead so when it slows, the MKX slows. When the car ahead picks up speed so does the MKX. Whether the system is on or not, there is a fall back collision warning with brake support. If the system senses an impending crash, a chime starts sounding and a red light flashes on the heads up display. If you don’t hit the brakes right away, the system knows it and pressurizes brake pressure so it will be fully charged when the driver does react. I tried the adaptive cruise on a trip to pick up

Lincoln from B2 my son from college and bring him home for the weekend. Traffic was light so I left it on 42 meters ‘normal’ and just sat back. A couple of times I came up to a slower car and the MKX did, indeed, slow. Nonetheless, I still have trouble giving my full trust to these systems, so I eventually turned it off. But what I did like on the trip was the optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS). On the outside of each exterior mirror is an orange warning light that illuminates each time a vehicle enters the blind spot area on either side of the MKX.

Friday, March 25, 2011

MOTORING

BLIS includes another goodie called crosstraffic alert. When backing up, the radar sensors somehow can detect a car approaching on either side from as far as 13 meters away. If something is coming there is an audible warning along with a message centre alert and a visual display on the corresponding mirror. Talk about having your rear covered! But perhaps the biggest single feature is the MyLincoln Touch driver connection technology that Ford has developed in collaboration with Microsoft. The system does away with all the controls most of us are used to

like knobs, switches and levers and replaces them with five-way rockers, touch screens and voice activation. In effect, it turns the car into a kind of giant, rolling smartphone. For instance, on either side of the analog speedo is a 4.2-inch screen and on each spoke of the steering wheel there is a controller that’s a bit like that a cellphone with the centre OK button surrounded by a north/west/east/south rocker. Each allows the driver to see/change anything from climate control to cruise control without looking down or taking

THERE’S ROOM for five adults in the 2011 Lincoln MKX, with 915 litres (32.3 cu ft) behind the 60/40 split/fold back seat. With the seat down, cargo volume increases to 1,942 litres (68.6 cu ft).

Let’s say you want to add a European-style sport sedan to your North American lineup. No sweat. Just go to Europe and get one, right? That’s pretty well what Buick did when they adapted the Opel Insignia for sales in Canada and the U.S. as the new 2011 Regal. Actually, I’m not sure if I should make that “adapted” or “adopted” because, basically, all GM did was change the badgework and substitute a minimal amount of Buick styling cues, the Buick signature waterfall grille being the most obvious addition tto the car. For the most part, GM designers were smart enough to leave the car alone—no suspension tsoftening, no “sweep spear” styling body changes and no archaic, WWIIinspired “portholes”, thank you very much. In the old days, North American engineers would have been sorely tempted to tamper with the taut Euro-performance parameters, “dumbing them down” in order to placate a passing generation with the old fart float-boats they were accustomed to. But Buick is on the hunt for a new generation of customers, the boomers and beyond who were raised on imports, who have little in the way of brand allegiances and who are maturing into a marketplace with ever-increasing demands of poise and performance. The award-winning Opel Insignia seems like a pretty good place to start that transformation. The car was developed in Germany, tested and refined on the famed Nurburgring proving grounds and it earned 2009 European Car of the Year honours, along with a list of 30-plus prestigious awards, recognizing the qualities that have made it the best-selling midsize sedan in Europe. And, wearing the Buick badge, the Regal is one of the reasons why Buick, an American original, is now selling more cars in China than at home. In Canada, the new

Regal came to market in early 2010, quickly achieving critical acclaim as a finalist in the Canadian Automotive Jury’s Best of the Best, while

disc brakes with brake assist, StabiliTrak stability control with traction control, tire pressure monitoring, remote keyless entry with power group and heated power exterior mirrors, power driver seat, tilt telescopic leatherwrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control, OnStar with six months subscription, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a seven-speaker AM/FM/XM system with CD player, MP3 playback and a USB port. There’s more to the list but you get the picture. The Regal harnesses a 2.4-litre ECOTEC direct injection four-cylinder that makes 182 hp at 6700 rpm and 172 lb/ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic. While some of us might have to get used to the idea of a four-banger in a Buick, that’s acceptable get-up-and-go for a base engine with fuel economy rated at a fairly frugal 10.8/6.5L/100km (city/hwy). A few months after the CXL intro, General Motors Canada added the CXL Turbo model tested here. The CXL Turbo bumps the Regal’s power level with a 2.0-litre turbocharged ECOTEC direct injection engine that makes 220 hp at 5300 rpm and 258 lb/ft of torque at 2000 rpm. There’s not a lot of drama to the added power ≠ no boost gauge or significant turbo whine— but the engine grunts forth with nice level of bottom end launch, surging up to speed quickly. There’s little in the way of a pump penalty for the added power, with a fuel economy rating of 11.5/7.0L/100km (city/ hwy) with the six-speed automatic. My combined fuel economy average worked out to an acceptable 10.5L/100km. Premium fuel is recommended for best performance, but the turbo engine will run just fine on regular. Of course, power without control means nothing, but this is where this Buick’s European bloodline really shows forth. The car handles with a kind of well-balanced elan that complements the extra oomph. An independent MacPherson strut front suspension with hydraulic ride bushings works in conjunction with

a four-link independent rear suspension. The sure and stable platform complements a more performance-oriented power variable-effort steering system. The overall effect is a taut, controlled feel that inspires cornering confidence. The CXL Turbo also offers a continuously variable damping suspension and Interactive Drive Control System. All four dampers are electronically controlled and continuously adapt within milliseconds to driving conditions and/or to chassis settings that are adjustable by the driver, with Normal, Tour and Sport settings. The Buick Regal CXL Turbo starts at $34,990 but, along with the increase in horsepower, the $3,000 price premium covers a bump up in the standard amenity level with the upgraded steering system, more power adjustments on the front seats, dual bright exhaust tips, a rear 120-volt household-type power outlet and an ultrasonic rear parking assist system. All these elements combine in a very proficient package, well styled inside and out with aboveaverage quality and construction, crafted with a definitive Euro-sport flair and flavour. GM’s original plan was to bring the upscale CXL models out first, followed by the base CX version later. That may still be the intent, but for now, Buick’s focus seems to be on two new 2012 models coming this fall, a mild hybrid and a high-output turbo version. The 2012 Regal eAssist combines the 2.4-litre base engine with hybrid electric power, regenerative braking, automatic engine shut-off and fuel cut-off during deceleration, to promise a thrifty 8.0/5.4L/100km fuel economy rating. And the 2012 Regal GS, a high-performance sport sedan boasting raceinspired fittings, harnesses a high-output version of the Ecotec 2.0-litre turbo engine with 255 hp and 295 lb/ft of torque. Pretty exciting stuff! But I’ll tell you what excites me. In the very immediate future, you won’t have to go to Europe anymore to See Buick B7

Buick from B6 rget a great midsize family sports sedan. When you open the door of a 2011 Buick Regal and crouch down, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plate on the doorpost from Adam Opel GMBH in Germany. r But check that plate a few months from now, on any version of the 2012 Buick Regal, and it will read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;built in Oshawa, Ontario.â&#x20AC;? The first 2012 Regals are coming off the Oshawa assembly line right now and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only good for Canadian industry and for consumers tlooking for homegrown excellence. I would suggest itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good indicator of Buickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brighter future as well.

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid Porsche will enter the Nurburgring 24 hour race on June 25 with a further developed version of the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid. Priority of the development was given to the improvement of efficiency through the targeted optimisation of hybrid components, which also resulted in a 20 per cent weight reduction. Version 2.0 of the 911 GT3 R Hybrid is intended to achieve the same lap times as its predecessor but with less fuel consumption. The general layout of the hybrid was adopted from the 2010 model. A portal axle with two electric motors drives the

front wheels and supplements the four-litre, depending on the balance of performance classification approximately 470 hp, six-cylinder boxer engine at the rear. The output of both electric motors has increased from 60 to 75 kilowatts each. For seconds at a time, pilots now have almost an additional 200 hp at their disposal with the 911 GT3 R Hybrid 2.0. Depending on the programming, this power is automatically activated through use of the throttle pedal. Moreover, pilots can manually call up this extra power, for instance when overtaking. The electric flywheel accumulator, with its rotor

spinning up to 40,000 rpm and storing energy mechanically as rotational energy, is now housed with the other hybrid components in a carbon fibre safety cell on the passenger’s side. At first glance, the new GT3 R Hybrid is clearly distinguishable from the 2010 model. Thanks to the optimisation of the hybrid system’s high voltage components, the large louvres in front of the rear fenders were no longer necessary. This reduces drag and also lowers fuel consumption. All in all, the weight of the vehicle decreased from 1,350 to 1,300 kilograms. Carguide Magazine

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Shirley Cameron (nee Cope), long-time resident of Kelowna. She is survived by her husband of sixty-four years, Bill Cameron and their children Lorraine (Jim Harker), Ian, Heather Grassick (Rick), and Janet Ryder (Chris). Shirley also leaves behind to cherish her memory six grandchildren and two great grandchildren, all much loved by their Granny Cameron.

BROWN - LORNE HAROLD

Born in Regina October 8, 1941, passed away March 13, 2011. Lorne will be sorely missed by a large community of family and friends. He is survived by his loving wife Brigitte, his sons Colin (Laura), Jason (Lara) and Darren, his grandchildren Shaylen, Jacob, Keira and Maya, his mother Anna, his brother Rodney (Betty) and sisters Pat (Goff) Longworth and Charlene. Lorne had many talents. He had a unique way of connecting with young people. He loved teaching sciences at KSS, from which he retired in 2007. He was a computer whiz, loved construction, hunting, fishing and could fix anything. However, his greatest passion was his ministry. Lorne served as a minister of the New Apostolic Church for 30 years, from 2001 to 2006 as a Bishop, responsible for B.C. and Alberta. He spent several summers in Papua New Guinea, building churches and doing missionary work which had a lifelong impact on many.

Funeral Service will be held at 1:00pm on April 2, 2011 at the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna, conducted by District Apostle Mark Woll. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the NAC Foreign Extension of the New Apostolic Church, c/o Today’s Choice Funeral Services Ltd, 1930 Kirschner Rd, Kelowna BC, V1Y 4N6 or any charity of your choice on his behalf.

VASKO, KATALINA

(1933-2011) Passed away on March 15th surrounded by her family. Survived by her 5 children: Chuck Laszlo, Louie & Anna among them. She was born in Hungry, moved to Australia, and settled in Canada where she became a proud Canadian citizen. Katalina was an incredibly strong and fiercely independent woman (and that’s putting it mildly!) whom many looked up to. She grew up in Hungry during WWII, moved her family to Canada, fought and survived breast cancer at 70, conquered other cancers, and on her last day, had enough strength to wake up and tell her family that she loved them. Katalina was very cheeky and mischievous and made everyone laugh whether she was doing the chicken dance, singing, telling outrageous stories of her youth or threatening new boyfriends with her baseball bat. She was a great Hungarian cook and made sure that everyone left her house fed whether they were hungry or not! Her soft spot was her family, especially her grandchildren who she played and had fun with, fed “goodie goodies,” and spoiled rotten any chance she got. She spent many hours outside in her vegetable garden she planted and with Bear, her best friend/ pet. Her other favourite pastimes were going to the casinos, being the little birdie on everyone’s shoulder, and getting angry at the TV when her favourite wrestlers from WWE were losing. Most of all, she was your best friend, someone to laugh with, your shoulder to cry on, and your support when you needed it. We will miss you and your laughter very much and will love you forever Anya, Grandma, Hunny Bunny, and dear friend. Service will be held on Saturday, April 2nd at 11:00am at the Benvoulin Heritage Church 2279 Benvoulin Rd, Kelowna. Following the service, a Celebration of Life will be held at the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Center for the Southern Interior.

STOTZ, NEFIZE

Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at the age of 84 years. She is survived by her loving family: daughter Lily Wilkinson of West Kelowna, son Richard Stotz of Kelowna; several grandchildren and great grandchildren and one brother in the Ukraine. Predeceased by her husband George. A celebration of Nefize’s life will be held at the Creekside Dining Room, 3929 Lakeshore Road, Kelowna, BC on Sunday, March 27, 2011 at 2:00 pm. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

VIOLET MAY CONNICK,

Violet was born near Woodstock, Ontario and lived in Beardmore, Thunder Bay Ontario and Saskatchewan where she nursed for many years before moving to Kelowna in 1996. She will be sadly missed by her loving family, daughter Bonnie McCorkell (Manley), son Harold Dickison (Marian), grandsons Robert Thomson, Christopher Thomson (Nicole), Wesley Dickison (Debbie), granddaughter Bonnie Dickison, great granddaughters Shalan Thomson, Pyper Thomson, Cara Behan, Taelor & Brooklyn Wilson, great grandsons Sheadon Thomson, Alfred Dickison, Dustin Behan. Predeceased by her parents Albert & Sarah Ann (Martin) Mather in 1938 and by husband Wesley Dickison in 1958 and husband Wesley Irvine Connick in 2002. Brothers Russell, Oren & Kenneth Mather and sister Olive Mather (Clarke Dickison). Thank you to the wonderful loving care staff at Pine Acres Care Home.

LONG, UNA GEORGIANNA nee Turnbull

Was born to William and Georgianna Turnbull on Feb. 5, 1917 at Bosky Dell Farm in Stockton, Manitoba. She was the last of six siblings. Una graduated as a registered nurse from Brandon General Hospital in 1940. She adventured west to Nelson, BC to pursue her career at Kootney Lake Hospital and there she met the love of her life, Harold Richard Long. They were married on May 23, 1942. She worked in Toronto and New York during the war years. After the war she returned with Harold to Nelson. Una’s first child, Richard (Briana) 1947, was born in Nelson. Una and Harold moved to Kelowna in 1948. Her next three children were born here: William (Ina) 1949, Georgia 1951 and Trevor (Sandy) 1961. Una’s career in nursing continued as night supervisor at the Kelowna General Hospital until retiring in 1957. Una was an adoring Grandmother to Aaron (Carly), Nathan (Stephanie), Dustin, Jared, Blake and Connor. She was a recent proud Great Grandmother to Jetson and Julia. Brett (Betsy), Allisha, Brooklyn, and Brady were close to her heart. Una loved sports and was active in curling, golfing and horse racing. She knew all the Toronto Blue Jays by name and enjoyed watching hockey with her family and friends. Her keen intelligence was evident in her bridge playing and her ability to recall where all her extended family were and what they are doing. Una’s home on Poplar Point was a favorite stopping off place for family and friends. She lived there from when she and Harold built it in 1959 until her passing. Una’s creative side was expressed in her china painting and managing the “Ink Spots”. She was a devoted friend and will be sadly missed by all who knew her yet would want all to live life to the fullest as she did. Una’s favorite quote was “ Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting “….Holy Moly… What a ride!” Many heart felt thanks to the nurses who provided caring support to Una and her family at Kelowna General Hospital. She would like also to thank Dr. Warrender for the many years of exemplary care provided. A Service of Remembrance will be held at 1:00 PM, March 30, 2011 St. Michael’s and All Angels Anglican Church, 608 Sutherland Ave. Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice in Una’s memory.
