Tributes pour in for the late Rev. Albert Baldeo Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER


RETIRED REV. ALBERT BALDEO was remembered yesterday as a man who brought people together. Baldeo, who suffered from Parkinson’s, died Monday.

Whether one knew him as an honorary ambassador for the City of Kelowna, the city chaplain, the Cops for Kids chief booster, an honorary Rotarian, a friend, a confidant or a favourite newspaper columnist, retired Rev. Albert Baldeo was the consummate community man. As such, it did not take long for word of his passing, at 5 p.m. on Easter Monday, to spread through town, leaving Kelowna under a somewhat fitting grey sky to match the many heavy hearts. At his church, St. Paul United on Lakeshore Road, Rev. Richard Chung said Baldeo would be missed by the congregation, but emphasized it is really the larger community where the loss will be felt the most.

“Almost every community organization has probably had some of his influence,” said Chung, pointing to Baldeo’s service with the Kelowna Rotary Club and as Kelowna’s chaplain among his more prominent roles. Mayor Sharon Shepherd noted his final column offered great solace to those who would miss his encouraging words. “He was at peace definitely and on his way to a very special place,” she said. When she was a city councillor, Shepherd remembered him setting up a meeting between council and all of the different ministerial groups in town to try and get everyone working together on issues like homelessness and poverty. He was always trying to bridge a gap and bring people together, she said, and the event stands out as an example of his

desire to help. “In the last few years, his wife was really at his side,” Shepherd added, saying his famous notes and poems and jokes would not have been possible without Beryl Baldeo’s quiet assistance. Baldeo was from Trinidad and came to Kelowna via Stony Plain, Alberta where he was with the United Church. He continued with the church here for another15 years, retiring in 1995 to deal with his Parkinson’s disease. But, retired or not, his reputation as the man the city turned to in times of need stuck. His carefully crafted poems and supportive notes for friends continued, always littered with humour, even under duress. He spoke during the 2003 firestorm, offered comfort to victims of crime, and support to local RCMP.

Two days before his death, knowing full well the end was near, he even got out to vote in the advanced polls to show his support for long-time friend MP Ron Cannan. “A friend commented to me there will be a new comedian in heaven,” said Cannan, who noted both he and his wife were in tears as Beryl told them of his final trip to the polling station. Kelowna Rotary Club president Vern Nielsen admitted he was not aware of how important Baldeo had become to him until he passed. “He had a big impact on my life. It just hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m just in shock,” said Nielsen. Like many others, Nielsen was the recipient of those famous poems See Baldeo A3

Tavares misses opportunity to confront cop who kicked him Cheryl Wierda STAFF REPORTER

Buddy Tavares came back from Mexico early in the hopes of seeing the police officer charged with assaulting him, face to face for the first time since the incident that led to the charge took place in January. But he’ll have to wait another two weeks to attempt that meeting with Const. Geoffrey Mantler, after the officer’s court cases were dealt with ear-

ly at the Kelowna courthouse Tuesday afternoon. Mantler, 28, was scheduled to make his first appearance on two charges of assault causing bodily harm—one of which involves Tavares as the victim—at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, but his cases were called at 1:42 p.m., shortly after Mantler arrived in the courtroom. During the brief appearance, Mantler stood silently at the back of the courtroom with his hands crossed and clutching a

soft-sided briefcase as his lawyer addressed the justice of the peace presiding in the room. Neville McDougall said he had yet to receive disclosure of evidence for either charge and expected to receive that information later this week. He requested the case return to court in two weeks. Mantler said nothing as he left the courthouse and got into a waiting vehicle driven by another local RCMP officer. A few minutes later,

Tavares seemed at a loss for words after learning Mantler’s case had been dealt with before he arrived in the courtroom. “I flew back from Mexico just to hear nothing,” Tavares told the Capital News. “I wanted him to see me sitting there.” Mantler arrested Tavares at gunpoint on Jan. 7, after police received a call about a man with a gun at the Harvest Golf Club. During the arrest, which was captured on video, Mantler could be

seen kicking Tavares in the face while Tavares, who suffered a brain injury last summer, was on all fours. Tavares was initially charged with careless use of a firearm following the arrest but that charge was later dropped. Mantler was charged with assault causing bodily harm in relation to that arrest last month. At the same time, police and justice officials announced a second charge of assault causing

bodily harm against Mantler, related to an Aug. 30 incident. Court records identify the victim in the second case as Manjeet Singh Bhatti. Mantler, who is currently suspended with pay, is now scheduled to return to court May 10. Tavares has pledged to return to the courthouse for that date. “I’ll be here every time,” he said.

Homeless voters registers at mission Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

“Lazy, addicts, drunks or even preacher—those are labels people stick on each other…but we are more than the sum of our behaviours,” said pastor Lester Mesenbrink, to a roomful gathered for lunch at Kelowna’s Gospel Mission. Mesenbrink gleaned the message from a postEaster Bible passage, but the idea of limiting classifications was particularly fitting for the day Elections Canada workers came to register voters without fixed addresses through the Attestation of Residence process. The roomful gathered for the shelter’s lunch are rarely included in the pol-

itical process as more than a talking point when social issues arise. And the likelihood they’d run into door-knocking politicians on the campaign trail isn’t likely considering many are without their own door, possibly due to some of the labels mentioned. But, as Arnold August explained, those gathered certainly are more than their labels, and in many cases they’re the first to feel the sting and benefit of political decisions across the country. “I’m voting for the person who talks most about social issues,” said August. “Those programs are what society is lacking.” Provincial cuts to funding have delivered a blow to the men and

women who live in Kelowna’s streets, and while August has an address he shared memories of days when Leon Avenue’s Drop In Centre—which closed last year due to a lack of funding—changed his course for the better. “I was having hard times, and I lived on the streets for four years,” he said. “I had post traumatic stress syndrome from the residential schools and the workers at the Drop-in Centre helped me get disability funding.” From there, August got a home, into some skills building programs and taking part in the community. Taking some time to discuss federal takes on First Nation people, he

rattled off policies the last several governments have put forth and their effectiveness. Stephen Harper’s apology to Canada’s aboriginal people even gained special mention for how it impacted his community. Although not everyone gathered was as keen to wax on about their political views, at least a couple were heartened to know they were going to be included in the process. “I’m definitely going to vote now, although I don’t know who to vote for,” said George Pierce, who said he’d tried and been deterred in the past. “I tried to register once before, and it was too hard. They wanted picture ID, and an address, so I walked away.


COMMUNITY RELATIONS OFFICERS were on hand at the Gospel Mission to register clients to be able to vote in the up coming election. Now, he’ll be included. Until 2000, men and women without an address and photo ID weren’t able

to register their vote, but through the Attestation of Residence they’re able to call the Gospel Mission

home and register to vote.



Death not the end, just a bend in the road: Baldeo

Facing the reality of death

Baldeo from A1

(Albert Baldeo’s last column, published last Friday, drew a great deal of reaction. We have reprinted here as a tribute to the late reverend.) On Sunday, March 27, I was feeling very uncomfortable and was having difficulty breathing. I did not want to stop breathing so I went to the emergency for a checkup. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon, so I did not have to wait very long. I received prompt attention. The doctor told me I had to be admitted. I was not ready for this, but the doctor knows best. After several tests the doctors discovered I have a very weak heart and it could stop beating at any time. This was the rea-

and notes and said Baldeo often called after the Rotary meeting to let him know what a good job he had done with the proceedings or what a good decision he had made. Always one for a joke, one of his favourite zingers poked fun at the ailments of old age, said Neilsen. He described how his wife was going through menopause and he was going through the shakes of Parkinson’s, so when they went to bed “it was shake and bake in there.” Neilsen was leafing through a file folder of such witticisms Tuesday morning as he fielded re-

quests for interviews. At the downtown RCMP office of Supt. Bill McKinnon, life was on a similar track. In a telephone interview, McKinnon described the many “gimmicks” and trinkets adorning his office as a result of Baldeo’s encouragement. “He was always stopping by and he would leave things at the front desk when I was away,” he said, pulling out a hat and a ruby trinket (the note said something about being a jewel). Fond of rearranging and renaming abbreviations and acronyms, he had renamed the RCMP Cops for Kids ride, Reaching Children in Many

Places. In his last column for the Capital News, KGH got a new moniker—Kindness, Goodness and Hospitality. Baldeo is survived by his wife Beryl (née Hobbs), whom he met while attending St. Stephen’s Theological Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta. One of seven children born to Elodie and Arthur Baldeo, he worked as a teacher for a decade before attending Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick to study theology. The Baldeos had three daughters—Ramona Fells, Kim Ron and Kaylyn Craig—and eight grandchildren.

He presided over 1,712 funerals, served the United Church of Canada for 30 years and took his Canadian wife back to Trinidad in the early years of their marriage where he served as a Presbyterian minister for eight years. The family moved to this community in 1981. Baldeo was 81 when he died. As local radio announcers at several stations fielded calls Tuesday, the last line of his final Capital News column was read over the airwaves again and again. “Death is not the end, it is just a bend in the road of life.”.

son for my shortness of breath. I had the privilege of being treated by two of the most outstanding cardiologists in B.C. One of those cardiologists informed me that there was a new medication that could help me. Unfortunately, it did not help. After my eighth day in hospital, the cardiologist informed me that he could not do anything more for me at this time so I was discharged. I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff at 2 East at KGH for their Kindness, Goodness and Hospitality…that spells KGH. The cardiologist was very candid in his comments to me: “Mr. Baldeo, you are a very sick man…

and you are dying.” Then he said, we all have to die. I replied, “Yes doctor, we are all terminally ill and some have longer terms than others.” There was once a man who thought “terminally ill” meant going to the airport to die. On my second day the doctor asked me a very pointed question. He said, “Mr. Baldeo, if you become ill at midnight and we have to treat you, would you like to be resuscitated or should we just keep you comfortable and let you go?” Without hesitation I replied, “Please let me go.” So these three letters were written on my file: DNR.

Baldeo figured he’d have ‘a ball” in heaven Candidates say they’ll work it out Column from A3

I am forced to reflect on my own mortality. I officiated at over 1,712 funerals in my 50 years of ministry work, but it seldom crossed my mind that some day I would be the one in the casket. It happens to everyone else, but not to me. Death was not a reality for me. I have been overwhelmed with the number of phone calls and prayers

on my behalf. It is comforting and healing. Thank you very much! My doctor has cautioned me to keep my visiting to a minimum. I am not able to accept visitors at this time so please forgive me. I would love to see you but in due time, when I am feeling some better and feel a little stronger. My three daughters and grandchildren have

visited and they sense Grandpa is not feeling well. One of them wrote me a beautiful poem. My sister called me from Trinidad and said, “Let not your heart be troubled.” This is a simple but penetrating truth. I am not accepting this death sentence at this time. I trust that our mighty God will take me through the valley of the shadow of death. However, I am fully

aware that my day to be ushered into eternity will come. But do not weep me for I have gone for my coronation where I will meet with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. My new destination is heaven, where there is no sickness, there is no Parkinson’s Disease, there are no hospitals…and there is no HST. I am ready to go to my new location. Are you?

I have a room reservation. Jesus said, “I have gone to prepare a place for you.” I will see my Mom and Dad and all my dear friends. I can hardly wait for the great reunion. This is only a temporary parting. I look forward to you coming to join me some day. I will have a ball in heaven. Death is not the end, it is just a bend in the road of life.

It’s still unclear whether Canada’s going to get another minority government out of the election, but eight candidates from the two ridings that straddle the Central Okanagan stressed they believe the makeup of the House of Commons is secondary to responsive and inclusive governance. As is, claimed incumbent MP Ron Cannan, during the Canadian Federation Of University Women’s political forum, the election was unnecessary because Parliament has been working across party lines to best address the issues of Canadians. His comment that it was an “unnecessary election,” however, was met with grumbles from the other candidates at the forum, particularly Okanagan Coquihalla candidate John Kidder. “We need to restore the democratic process,” he told the 200-plus crowd . Canada has a history of successful minority governments. In fact, he pointed out, Universal health care came to be under a minority government, but the political climate of today is dysfunctional and too entrenched in party lines. “My father was a Conservative and my mother was a CCF member—so I had no choice but to be Liberal,” he said, starting upon a story about when he learned that party allegiance should be secondary to successful governance. “We had gone to see Tommy Douglas, and I

asked my dad, ‘why are we here, he’s CCF?’. And my dad said, ‘Tommy Douglas is a hero, you have to get past the labels that divide us. What we have in common is more important than what keeps us apart.’” Kidder’s comment didn’t highlight political policy, but it gained hearty applause from the 200plus crowd gathered at the Richter Street seniors centre and set the stage for independent, Green and NDP candidates to all extoll the virtues of functional government. The rest of the topics discussed were drawn from a list of questions the organizers and the audience put forth, and touched on everything from candidate competency to the Free Trade agreement, environment, health care and education. Although the crowd was largely comprised of elderly Kelowna residents, questions about post secondary education policies offered a moment when many left their cheat sheets to discuss their take. Liberals Kris Stewart (Kelonwa-Lake Country) and Kidder said they favour policies that would allow all fit students to enter university or college. “If you get the grades, you get to go,” said Stewart, making reference to a learning passport, grant program. Kidder pointed out that he thought it’s time that governments stop stymieing recently graduated students with high interest See Election A6

Brothers arrested, accused in drug case A Kelowna man and his brother, who lives inCalgary, have been arrested for allegedly illegally obtaining and possessing the drug Oxycontin. Calgary Police announced last week that Sammy Sandy Habib, a 46-year-old Kelowna man, and Michel Ferris Habib, a 49-year-old Kelowna resident, had been arrested following a yearlong investigation. It is alleged the brothers obtained 85 prescriptions from more than a dozen doctors in Alberta and B.C. for various strengths of Oxycontin. Police believe the brothers than filled the prescriptions at pharmacies in Alberta and B.C. Sometimes they allegedly filled the same prescription in both provinces, a method known as double doctoring. Between Feb. 4, 2009 and July 15, 2010, police say the brothers were prescribed more than 67,000 Oxycontin pills, worth an estimated $3.4 million. It is believed the medication was sold on the street for profit. Police say Sammy Habib was arrested at his Kelowna home back on April 16, while brother Michel was arrested near his southwest Calgary home three days later. Both brothers are facing numerous charges, including uttering a forged document, failing to disclose a previous prescription and fraud under $5,000.

Cell phone helps with search for quadder


Carrying his cell phone while off-roading helped a West Kelowna man get medical attention after he became pinned under his ATV and a fallen tree.

Just before 12:30 p.m. last Friday, 911 received a cell phone call from a man who was only able to yell for help briefly before the call was lost. However, dispatchers were able to find out who the phone was registered

to and called the man’s house and learned from his wife that he had gone quadding alone near Hayman Lake on the MacDougall Creek Forest Service Road. A full-scale search was launched for the 70-year-

old West Kelowna man, and included police officers on ATVs, the RCMP helicopter, RCMP dog services, West Kelowna Fire Department, search and rescue crews and local residents on their personal ATVs.

Searchers found the man’s vehicle at the end of Bartley Road and the RCMP helicopter soon located the man after 911 dispatchers were able to hear the helicopter’s siren during a subsequent phone call with the man,

said Const. Steve Holmes. Local quadders were the first to reach the man, who had become pinned under his ATV and a fallen log, approximately four kilometres off an unmaintained side road. They lifted the ATV and log that had trapped the man and provided first aid until police and fire personnel arrived, said Holmes. The man was brought to the fire department’s four-wheel drive vehicle and transported to a waiting ambulance, which took him to hospital with suspected serious spinal and bone injuries. “Ultimately, the lucky man suffered only bruising and soft tissue injury and is now home convalescing,” said Holmes. He said a potentially tragic situation was averted by the man’s presence of mind to bring his cell phone and use it, as well as letting his spouse know where he was headed. If there is one lesson, said Holmes, it is to not go ATVing alone.

loan repayment. “Student loans shouldn’t get passed to banks,” he said, pointing out the debt should be held by the federal government. “They should be paid back out of income tax, as is the case with European countries.” The Green Party’s Alice Hooper and Dan Bouchard stressed their party would like to see students granted access to student loans, regardless of their parents’ income. Bouchard also questioned why students repaid debt at a prime plus-two per cent rate. “Why do we draw profits from student debt?” he said. Cannan took a different tack, pointing out the feds invested in infrastructure at UBCO and Okanagan College, and that is a benefit to the post secondary system. Immigration issues also arose out of the conversation after it was pointed out that some of the country’s most educated and under-utilized citizens were immigrants. “They say the safest See Election A7

OC’s $92.9 million budget approved Okanagan College’s board of governors has approved a $92.9-million operating budget for t2011-12. The board passed the budget at a meeting Tuesday. t The budget anticipates that student numbers will increase by approximately five per cent in the coming year. “This was a challenging year,” said chairman Lance Kayfish. “We are facing inflationary pressures of approximately $1 million this year. The anticipated enrolment growth, along with careful reallocation of resources, will allow us to offer modest expansion in some areas. Targeted government funding will

‘Doctors driving cabs’: Upshaw

also allow us to introduce the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program this year as well.” The nursing program was announced Thursday by the province. It is a partnership arrangement with UBC, that will allow students to complete the first two years of their four-year degree program at Okanagan College and then finish at UBC Okanagan.) One program area that will likely see some reductions the coming year is trades training, as the college responds to a five per cent reduction of the Industry Training Authority’s funding to institutions. The effects of that will be mitigated as the college

reductions come in programs that have had low application and enrolment rates in recent years. Those include the Apprentice Commercial Transport Vehicle Mechanic and the Metal Fabricator programs. The number of intakes in other programs—apprentice automotive service technician, apprentice carpenter, and apprentice electrician—will be reduced, largely in response to reduced demand for those particular areas of trades training. “With these reductions, we’re still anticipating that Okanagan College will be able to meet student demand for trades training,” explained Kayfish.

A number of non-ITA funded trades programs will be offered in the coming year, and there are funding applications for two new programs still being considered by the ITA. The college will also provide additional capacity to accommodate more students in human kinetics programming, arts, and business administration. Okanagan College has surpassed its growth targets over the past six years, and now enrolls approximately 8,000 fulltime equivalent students annually. More than 20,700 people attended the college in the 2009-2010 school year.

Election from A6 place in Vancouver to have a heart attack is the back of a cab,” said Cannan, before noting he’d like to see grants that allow immigrants to renew their professional accreditations from abroad, within a Canadian context. Independent candidate from Okanagan Coquihalla Sean Upshaw said “there’s something wrong when there’s a docrtor driving a cab” noting he’d favour policies to change those conditions. NDP candidates David Finnis and Tisha Kalmanovich pointed out the issue thas been a thorn in the rside of Canadian immigrants for years, but nothing has been done about it. tThat in itself shows how important it is to the dominant parties of Canada, she said.

Sweet good night, Albert


n any community there are people who stand out, people who others turn to in a time of crisis and people whose words are always a comfort. In this community, Rev. Albert Baldeo was one of those people. The retired United Church minister was well known for his kind, comforting manner, generosity of spirit and entertaining oratory skills. If Baldeo composed one of his signature humorous poems about you and recited it in public, you knew you had arrived. Baldeo died Monday following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Baldeo was not a tall man in stature but he was a giant in spirit who helped gently guide this community through some of its brightest and darkest hours, including the tragic murder of Mindy Tran and the 2003 wildfires. But he was also on hand for happier occasions, from christenings to weddings, from retirements to honours. Baldeo’s voice spoke the words of everyday life that made a city a community. He was recognized repeatedly for his giving, including being named Kelowna’s Citizen of the Year in 1982. In 2009, he was awarded the Anita Tozer Memorial Award, given by the city to an individual

who makes an extraordinary contribution to improve the quality of life here. It was a fitting honour. As tributes poured in yesterday for the native of Trinidad who touched so many, we at the Capital News paused to remember a man who did so much and shared his love of life and indomitable spirit in the pages of this newspaper. His column was well loved by many and the final words of his last column, published on Friday, are being quoted around the city in light of his passing. “Death is not the end, it is just a bend in the road of life.” Albert Baldeo was 81. Rest in peace.

Return to two complicated sales taxes will turn business away


ven if movies based on video games aren’t your cup of tea, the recent Disney production Tron: Legacy is notable as a measure of the sophistication of the B.C. motion picture industry. A showcase of the latest computer-generated 3D effects, including a rendering of actor Jeff Bridges as he looked in the original version 30 years ago, Tron: Legacy was nominated for an Oscar and won several other awards for technical achievement. The sleek, lighted suits worn by characters were custom-made in the United States at a cost of $22 million, then brought to Vancouver for filming. Due to the vagaries of the old pro-

vincial sales tax, Disney had to pay about $1.5 million in PST because they were used here. A friend in the business tells me this was more of a deterrent to movie production in B.C. than the current weakness of the U.S. dollar. It’s the kind of expensive insult added to the injury of dealing with two different, complicated sales taxes, and it’s one of many unintended business problems fixed by harmonized sales tax. Despite B.C.’s reputation for mov-

ie wizardry, the next Tron might be made somewhere else if the HST is rejected. Regular readers will know I am an advocate of the HST, and Tom the general trend away Fletcher from income taxes and towards consumption taxes. But most people I talk to aren’t interested in the economics, except as it relates to their own wallets. They don’t believe that taxes imposed on business will either be passed on to consumers, or avoided by changing locations. And they are


bombarded with bogus arguments in this spring of election fever. Federal NDP leader Jack Layton is the worst offender. Like his B.C. counterparts, he has run to the front of the anti-HST parade. Unlike the B.C. NDP, Layton knows he will never have to implement his promises in government, so he offers to write off the $1.6 billion transition fund that B.C. has applied to its deficit. In effect, the rest of the provinces would subsidize B.C. for bringing back an archaic sales tax. That’s not even Layton’s dumbest idea. He’s been wandering the country promising to remove GST from heat-

ing bills, a $700-million tax cut that would help the rich as much as the poor. Surely B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix would not approve of such a regressive tax shift. (Presumably Layton has been briefed by now that B.C.’s portion of the HST doesn’t apply to heating bills, so he won’t confuse us with Ontario any more.) Dix talks about HST falling on small business. There is an impact on service businesses, notably restaurants, but ask a self-employed person or small business operator if they’d like to go back to administering two See Fletcher A9

Gas buying boycott has to be more focused To the editor: I believe the most we paid for a litre of gas in Kelowna was $1.40 in 2008, which is close to what we are paying now. In 2008 though, the price of a barrel of oil was just over $147 compared to now, which is around $110. The price at the pump is supposed to reflect the price for a barrel of oil. The numbers don’t really add up. Oil companies can’t use a weak dollar as a reason, so a person can’t help feeling ripped off at the pump. I read D. Furbank’s letter to the editor

(Consumer Wants to Start Boycott on Buying Gas, April 20 Capital News) and there are two reasons this will not work. First, most Canadians are too complacent to do anything about high gas prices. Second, Furbank suggested we don’t buy gas on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. This would simply mean people would buy their gas on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. No real difference to the retailers. The only way we, as a community, would have any real power to change gas prices

would be to boycott a certain retail gas company, such as “Canada’s gas company.” Petro Canada. They are usually the first to raise gas prices here. If even half the people would stop buying gas there it would create pressure on the retailers to actually set their prices to compete with other gas stations, instead of the price fixing we have now. One other thing, why is gas always 10 cents cheaper in Enderby? Dean Armeneau, Westbank

Keep the comments to candidates’ actions To the editor: This letter is in reference to a letter published in the April 20th edition of the Capital News: Candidate’s Wife Takes Names for Husband to Answer Questions at Unspecified Later Date. Mr. Maves seems reluctant to indicate who he supports, and which candidate he is talking about, although he does so obliquely. I have spent my adult life defending the freedoms that go with living in this country, particularly the freedom of speech. But there is societal responsibility that goes with these freedoms, and I draw issue on three levels. One is that Mr. Maves attacks the wife of a candidate, and by extension, the demographic that accompanied her. As volunteers simply making people aware of their right to vote, the date, and the location of the nearest polling station, it seems that although, as Mr. Maves

points out, it is “our decision to make, not hers,” I would be surprised if the suggestion that voting was mandatory, as it is in many countries, often for one candidate only. I was not there, of course, but my second comment is that I would prefer to hear a response directly from a candidate of any party, unfiltered. This, too, is a part of the democratic process. Find out from the party you favour when and where the next all-candidates’ meeting is and you can offer your questions directly. (Editor’s note: At this time, no further allcandidates’ meetings are scheduled after this publication date.) Third, freedom of the press is essential to the foundation of our culture, but I am surprised that the Capital News would choose to print a letter so full of vitriol and indirect references. Under the heading “Express Yourself,” you indicate that “we reserve the right to

edit for…taste.” Fortunately, you do not have to worry about censorship, but there may need to be an editorial view on what contributes to civil discourse, and what may be presented as bona fide information instead of speculation. You would certainly, I am sure, hold your reporters to a higher standard than to use a phrase such as, “No, they were not a religious organization, they were political.” The use of the word “propaganda” is particularly disturbing. Like our government? Don’t like our government? There are people fighting throughout the world for the opportunity for “one man or woman—one vote.” Express yourself on election day. And leave the wives, children and elderly out of it. Michael Patten, Kelowna

Of Royal weddings and honouring memories To the editor: As the world prepares to watch the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton I am reminded of the feverish preparations I saw for the wedding of Charles and Diana a generation earlier. Has anything changed, I wonder. There was rarely a visit to London when I did not visit Westminster Abbey where the monarchs of the realm are crowned and where the great and noble are laid to rest. All who enter, the humble and the prominent alike, the Sovereign herself, walk

around the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to be reminded of past sacrifice. On a large stone column to your left is mounted a small wooden case with America’s Congressional Medal of Honour. It was bestowed on this fallen soldier after World War I by General Pershing in the name of his fellow citizens. But over half a century had passed and the world had more immediate priorities. Only days before that Royal wedding, television crews put up steel scaffolds bearing high platforms from which to

record the glittering event. One scaffold was near the entrance. For better support a steel cable tied it to the stone column on which the medal was displayed. The thick cable ran straight across the Medal of Honour. I could not understand why the stage hands chose this particular spot as there was plenty of space elsewhere. It felt as if part of history had been desecrated. Inside the Abbey I met a group of Italian students. They wore suits in contrast to tourists who roamed around in shorts. I was struck by an air of

reverence as they listened attentively to a guide and I asked an Abbey warden if he knew who they were. He said they were Italian university students. “You must remember this was once part of the Roman Empire,” he explained. “London was an important Roman outpost. For these young people their visit here is like a pilgrimage into their country’s past.” We both agreed that it was remarkable that after almost 2,000 years Rome’s modern descendants would still be moved to pay homage

to the achievements of their distant ancestors. “I doubt that we will ever do the same,” I said. “We couldn’t care less after just 60 short years.” He was somewhat taken aback by my harsh judgement until I showed him the covered Medal of Honour. He said he hadn’t noticed it and kept shaking his head before pronouncing judgment with a typically stiff upper lip: “Well, Sir, in Roman times they didn’t have television.” Harry Liedtke, Kelowna

Fletcher from A8 different sales taxes. Quarterly HST rebate cheques went out last week to more than a million B.C. residents at the lowest end of the income scale. Ask those people if they’d like to lose that benefit, a real example of the kind of income equalizing measure that Dix

calls his top priority. Ask a laid-off mill employee if he’d like to go back to work, and pay HST on movies and a dinner out. ••• Further to last week’s column about Dix’s plan to raise corporate tax rates, I now regret referring to his program as “Marxism Lite.”

I fell for his strident rhetoric about taxing big corporations. His proposal amounts to raising the tax on corporate net income in excess of $500,000 by a modest two per cent. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Would you exercise more if it took less time and was fun? According to the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, to achieve health benefits, adults aged 18 to 64 should accumulate at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity per week. But is there a way for the average adult to achieve the same health benefits in less time while increasing their enjoyment of exercise? This is the question UBC student Demian Carson will be exploring this summer at UBC’s Okanagan campus. A fourth-year human kinetics major, Carson has received an Undergraduate Research Award of nearly $5,000 from the Canadian Institute of Health Research to find out if highintensity interval training is an attractive alternative to continuous aerobic exercise for promoting exercise among the average adult. “The research will assess the affective response and perceived enjoyment to various modalities of exercise,” says Carson, who will be conducting the research under the direction of Mary Jung, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Health and Social Development. “One avenue that has yet to be explored is how tolerable high-intensity interval training is for sedentary people to partake in -so we’re very excited to be one of the first to examine this. Basically, we want to know if people like it and will people do it?” High-intensity interval training is often used by athletes. It is an exercise strategy that combines short, high-intensity bursts of speed, with slower recovery phases throughout a single shortened workout. Carson notes that one of the main reasons adults give for not exercising is lack of time and enjoyment. As a former Nordic combined coach, Carson has spent a lot of time motivating athletes to achieve peak personal fitness. However, he says motivating the general population is a whole different ball game. “I am interested to find out how enjoyable and effective this training is for the average adult who doesn’t have a lot of time, or perhaps even motivation, to exercise,” he says. Carson’s hope is the research may help exercise physiologists com-

pare various exercise strategies and potentially offer a new way to use high-in-

tensity interval training to promote fitness and motivate people to exercise,

ultimately increasing the overall health of adults. “I am very excited to

have Demian begin working with me as an undergraduate research assist-

ant,” says Jung. “The CIHR award will permit Demian to work full-time

in my laboratory, and he will be a great asset to the team.”

Cop’s suspicions lead to roadside pot bust Roger Knox VERNON MORNINGSTAR

The North Okanagan Traffic Services’ police officer thought the pickup truck he saw on Highway 6 at Kalamalka Road Thursday at 7 p.m. was overloaded. The officer stopped

the vehicle and talked to the driver and lone occupant of the truck. During his investigation, the officer noted the driver had in his possession a radio jamming device, an instrument police say puts them in danger. “People involved in the drug trade or crim-

drug trade are possessing these.” The officer then searched the vehicle and discovered 13 boxes of marijuana plants—1,259 plants in all—along with potting soil, compost and other growing materials and chemicals. “For the record, the

Locals soak up Boston Marathon experience Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

After running in 65 previous marathons, you’d think the novelty just might have worn off for Keith Parks. Not so when it comes to competing in the most prestigious 26-mile 385yard race there is on the planet. The 50-year-old Parks ran in the Boston Marathon last week for the seventh consecutive year, posting his best time yet in three hours 21 minutes 26 seconds. “The novelty never goes away when it comes to Boston,” said Parks. “That’s the reason people want to run it, it’s the most prestigious one there is. The history there is wonderful, and the atmosphere is like nowhere else. I’ll run that one until the day I die.” On a seasonably pleasant day in New England with temperatures ris-

ing into the 60s F, Parks knocked 3 1/2 minutes off his previous best mark in Boston. The conditions were clearly conducive to fast times as the overall winner, Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya, posted the fastest marathon in the world to date in 2:03:02. However, due some of the course’s features, it isn’t being recognized as a new world record. For Parks, the race couldn’t have gone much better in the throng of more than 24,000 runners. “Everything was stellar,” said Parks, a paramedic in Kelowna, who will run in about 10 marathons this year. “For me it’s always about goal setting, I had an excellent game plan, and it worked so it was a very happy day for me. Obviously, with a new world record, it was a really good day for a lot of people to be running.” And it’s not just the race itself that keeps Parks


KEITH PARKS (second from left) was the first Kelowna runner to complete last

week’s Boston Marathon in three hours 21 minutes 26 seconds. Randy Werger (second from right) finished in 3:24:33, while Corrine Gable competed in the Gansett Marathon in Rhode Island. An injury prevented Pat Gable (right) from competing. coming back year after year. The social aspect of the Boston Marathon happens to be a big bonus. “We had a wonderful post-race meal, there were four of us from Kelowna, there were people

from Kansas, Florida, Texas, Las Vegas, Ohio… it’s about people coming together from everywhere and enjoying the social side. I really enjoy my time on and off the course.”


Finishing not far behind Parks was Kelowna’s Randy Werger in a time of 3:24:33. The 51-year-old Kelowna runner, entered in Boston for the second time, bettered his former standard by about four

minutes. Werger also made certain he absorbed this year’s marathon more than thoroughly than his first time there in 2006. “My goal this time was really to enjoy the race,” he said. “The first time I put too much pressure and emphasis on the time. I kind of missed the whole point of it. This time I had a better day overall, I enjoyed it and I ran well. “As always, the crowds were great, kids are highfiving you,” he continued. “You get to the mid-point and you can hear it coming, the noise from the Wellesley all-girls school, it’s pretty amazing. Your ears are ringing when you come out of there. “Just having the fans all the way along the course makes it so much better to run the race.” Pat and Corinne Gable have made the Boston Marathon one of their spring traditions over the

years, but the registrations filled up before the Kelowna couple could get in. Instead, the Gables signed up for the Gansett Marathon on the Saturday before Boston in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Corrine finished the Gansett in 3:45, while an injury prevented Pat from running. However, Pat still managed to set a new record in his fifth visit to New England. He consumed nine bowls of clam chowder, surpassing his previous high mark of eight. Seven other Kelowna and area runners completed last week’s Boston Marathon. Their times and ages are: David Lynn, 46, 3:26:01; Penny Nobozniak, 40, 3:42:07; Laura Steinke, 34, 3:43:47; Kim Baldassare, 43, 3:55:33; Tim Purcer, 54, 4:04:29; Alison Leon, 45, 4:05:07; and Helen Handcock, 61, 4:32:08.

Weber a Norris finalist For the second year in a row, a former Kelowna Rocket is a finalist for the NHL’s Norris Trophy. Nashville Predators blue liner Shea Weber is among the three nominees for the league’s best defenceman in 2010-11. Six-time winner Niklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings and Boston’s Zdeno Chara are the other finalists. Former Kelowna rearguard Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks won the award last season. Weber, who was named captain of the Predators last summer, is a Norris finalist for the first time in his six-year NHL career. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound native of Sicamous led all Nashville defensemen with 48 points on 16 goals and 32 assists, appeared in all 82 regular-season games and played the third most minutes of any player in the


OKANAGAN A’S designated hitter Brandon Johnson slides safely into home in a game against the Parksville Royals in B.C. Premier Baseball League action Saturday at Elks Stadium.


A’s come up empty vs Royals After a solid start to the B.C. Premier Baseball League season the Okanagan Athletics had a rough weekend, losing all four games to the Parksville Royals on its homeopening weekend. On Saturday at Elks Stadium the Royals scored five times tin the fifth inning to come from behind and earn a 6-4 win. Dallis Senger was 3-for-4 with one RBI for the Athletics while Kody Smith also had one RBI and was 2-for3 at the plate in the opening game of Saturday’s twin bill. Later that afternoon Parksville opened the nightcap with a four run first inning and that

was enough to stand up in a 7-3 win. Rees Weninger was 2-for-2 at the plate for the A’s On Sunday the Athletics again had poor inning early, allowing six runs in the second inning in an 8-5 loss. The Athletics scrapped their way back to make the score 6-4 but couldn’t overcome the early deficit. Ryo Shishido was 3-for-4 in the same while Colin Currie had two RBIs. In the final game of the series the Royals scored three times in the second and two more in the seventh to win 5-2. James Ward drove in both Athletics’ runs with a 2-for-3 afternoon. The weekend leaves the Ath-

letics with a 3-6 record early in the BCPBL season. The A’s return to PBL action May 7 and 8 when they visit the Victoria Mariners.


It was much the same story for the Okanagan Junior Athletics as the Jr. A’s dropped all four games of their series with the North Delta Jr. Blue Jays in games in Kelowna and West Kelowna. The Jr. A’s lost 3-1, 7-6, 11-3 and 7-5 to the Jr. Blue Jays. The Jr. Athletics are now 2-and-6 on the season. This weekend, the A’s will be in Parksville.

Vipers return to Royal Bank Cup The Vernon Vipers better get used to life in Alberta because they’ll be returning to Wild Rose Country in less than a week to defend their RBC Cup national Junior A hockey title. David Robinson scored the winner with six minutes to play as the Vipers outlasted the host Spruce Grove Saints 4-2 in a series-deciding Game 7 of the Doyle Cup Sunday night at Grant Fuhr Arena. Winners of the last two RBC Cups and representatives of the Pacific region, the Vipers will begin their title defence against the host Kodiaks Saturday. After suffering a deflating 2-0 shutout loss in Game 6 Saturday night, the Vipers needed just 38 seconds to solve netminder Vince Marozzi Sunday as Dane Muench buried

Dylan Walchuk made it 2-0 when he took a chip pass from Marcus Basara at the blueline and fired a weak backhander that squeaked through Marozzi’s five-hole at 14:05. Saints’ sniper Scott Allen replied just over a minute later on the powerplay, snapping a shot just inside the right post from

the high slot to re-energize 1,300 fans. Josh Keizer equalized for Spruce Grove on a tremendous shorthanded effort. He blocked Adam Thompson’s point shot and then won a foot race to the loose puck in the neutral zone and broke in alone on Kirby Halcrow, ripping a quick shot past the Vernon netminder at 6:37. The Saints had the jump on the Vipers early in the third period, hem-

ming the visitors in their own end for the opening two minutes, but the Vipers endured the pressure and the back-and-forth action resumed. Robinson pocketed the winner as he charged to the net and got a stick on Bryce Kakoske’s centering feed. Thompson made amends for his earlier blunder by lofting a clearing shot 180 feet into the empty Spruce Grove net with 20 seconds to play.

The Kelowna Raiders look for their second straight to open the 2011 Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League when they host the Kamloops Rattlers on Thursday night. Face off at Memorial Arena is 7:30 p.m. In a battle of goaltenders and defense, the Raiders opened campaign last Thursday night at home with a 4-3 win over the defending league champion Kamloops Venom. Tanner Belsham turned aside 29 Kamloops shots in the Raider net. Tyler French paced the Kelowna attack with two goals and an assist, while

Brendan Urban scored the game winner. Scott Renner also scored for the Raiders, while Jordan Urban had two assists. The local junior team is playing under the banner of the Kelowna Raiders for the first time, after the Rutland Raiders and Kelowna Warriors amalgamated for the 2011 season.


The Kelowna Raiders will be trying to brush off a pair of one-goal losses to open the Okanagan Xtreme Lacrosse League season when they host the Vernon Tigers this Friday

night at Memorial Arena. Game time is 7:30 p.m. The Raiders are coming off their second straight nail-biting defeat, a 9-8 loss to the hometown Kamloops Rattlers last Friday night. Rookie Doug Langlois had three goals and an assists in his debut as a senior Raider, while Vic Wiens added a pair of goals. Kelowna’s defence, led by junior call-up goaltender Tanner Belsham along with Vic Wiens, Owen Barski, Travis Lee, Darcy Leach, Dave Haas, Andrew Habib and Ryan Zeleznik was solid in limiting the Rattlers’ highscoring attack.

gains experience in collegiate field Kelowna sprinter Keefer Joyce gained some valuable experience against mostly older collegiate athletes at two track meets held recently in California. Joyce, 17, who attends Kelowna Secondary School, more than held his own at the Asuza Pacific University event near Los Angeles. He placed third in his respective Heat in a time of 11.08 seconds, with only 11 of 60 runners

posting better times. Joyce also competed in the 200 metres, but ended up with NT (no time) due to a technical error. The following day at the Beach Invitational, Joyce placed 36th out of 82 athletes in the 100m metres in a time of 11.02 seconds. In the 200 metres, Joyce was 61st in a field of 98 with a time of 22.73.

Two new B.C. political leaders prepare to face off Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA—The B.C. legislature reconvenes on Wednesday for a month-long session that is expected to feature the debut of both new NDP leader Adrian Dix and new Liberal leader Premier Christy Clark. Clark must first win a seat in a May 11 byelection in Vancouver-Point Grey, to fill the vacancy left by former premier Gordon Campbell. If she defeats NDP candidate David Eby, she would be able to take her seat on the B.C. Liberal front bench a few days before the spring session ends on June 2. Clark has hinted at new family-friendly tax measures that could be tabled in the spring session. One of those could be a promised reduction in the rate of the harmonized sales tax, the fate of which will be decided in a mailin referendum set for June and July. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon has launched a pre-referendum program that includes $500,000 to

be split between pro-HST and anti-HST representatives, a household mailout including arguments from both sides, and a series of public forums held at colleges and universities around B.C. The government will also run an advertising campaign urging voters to keep the HST, thus avoiding costs in the billions to undo it and retaining sales tax rebates directed to lowincome households. The government plans to start sending out mailin ballots in mid-June, and completed ballots must be received by Elections BC no later than July 22. It will be August before the results are known, and the government knows whether to keep the HST or negotiate an end to it with the federal government. The B.C. Liberal government presented a

status-quo budget in February, leaving a substantial portion of expected revenue not yet allocated. That budget must be debated and passed before the government’s spending authority runs out in July. The government must also pass amendments to set up the mail-in HST referendum. An anti-HST petition organized by former premier Bill Vander Zalm last year calls on the government to either reinstate the former provincial sales tax and provide refunds on millions of transactions, or put the issue to the public in a vote. Former finance minister Colin Hansen said it wouldn’t be possible to meet the demand in the original petition, and the Clark government has decided to take the vote over and do it by mail.

ling spring has finally arrived. Let’s hope the nights don’t get too frosty as they did a year ago in April, freezing the magnolia blossoms and causing them to turn brown. Oh well such is gardening. Just how late are we anyway? You might be surprised we are not as late as it seems for some things but quite late for others. Looking back to my


Don Burnett blooming times recorded the past few years the saucer magnolias are about a week off. In 2007 they were in full bloom by the 17th of April and this year they

are just showing colour. The forsythia is now in full bloom but in 2007 they were in full bloom March 30. The star magnolias also were in full bloom at least three weeks prior compared to this year. I can tell you this, however; when the weather warms up next week which they are promising us, we will have a blast of colour we rarely see. Everything will burst at once including lilacs, horse chestnuts, kerria, snowball, bridal wreath spirea and hundreds of other species. Let the show begin! I get several questions on what to do with the lawn at this time of year. Do I power rake? Do I aerate? Do I top dress? The answer is yes and you can add over-seeding to that as well.

Growing good turf is all about supplying adequate air to the roots as it is when growing any plant. Turf, after all, is just a whole lot of plants growing close together. Power raking, which is scratching up the dead grass so it can be raked out and aerating which is removing plugs of soil to allow air in and relieve compaction, can be done first. The next step is a top dressing of Natures Gold fertilizer compost followed by an over-seeding of a good quality Okanagan mixture. There are some good drought tolerant mixes out there now that most garden centres handle. Now, if you don’t wish to apply the Natures Gold top dress yourself you can get a hold of John Kilsby at LawnFX, 250-

215-7210 or lawnfx@ He will come by with his machine and get the perfect amount on evenly every time to produce the best lawn you have had. ••• Mark your calendar for May 14 when the Fintry Spring Plant Festival takes place at the Fintry Manor House. This will be a fabulous event for gardeners and non-gardeners alike with over 20 exhibitors including growers, garden clubs, societies and more. This is all to support the Friends of the Fintry who are enabling the restoration and preservation of this wonderful part of our history. I will get into more detail next week. The Don Burnett Garden Show is on AM 1150 Saturday at 8 a.m.

Garden club plant sale coming up A bigger and better annual plant sale is being organized by the Kelowna Garden Club this year, with presentations on composting and xeriscaping. As well, the South Okanagan Similkameen

Invasive Plant Society will offer information about invasive plants. The club’s annual sale will be Saturday, April 30 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or while materials last, at the Guisachan Heritage Garden, 1060 Cameron St.

In addition to plants, there will be a paraphernalia sale with tools, pots, magazines, books, knicknacks and whatnots for sale. Master gardeners will be available to answer specific gardening questions.


Take tick precautions As the weather warms, people across Interior Health will be spending more time outdoors in tall grass or wooded areas and this means an increased chance of getting tick

bites. Ticks are small bugs that bite and feed on the blood of humans and animals and sometimes these bites can transmit disease. Fortunately, there are precautions people can take to prevent illnesses that may be transmitted from tick bites. “There are easy things you can do to protect yourself like covering up before you head outdoors and checking for ticks when returning from a walk, hike or bike ride,” says Dr. Rob Parker, medical health officer with Interior Health. “Most tick bites do not result in illness; however, any bite from a tick or other insect should be cleaned, as infection can occur whenever there is a break in the skin.” While ticks are common in the Interior Health region, most are the wood tick (dermacentor andersoni), species which does not carry the lyme disease bacteria. Lyme diseasecarrying ticks (I. pacificus)

are more common in the coastal areas of B.C. The wood tick can carry other diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, although it is rare. In addition, ticks also have toxins that can cause temporary muscle weakness and paralysis if they are attached for several days, especially in children or seniors, but the symptoms fade once the tick is found and removed from the skin. The signs of many tick-borne infections can be quite similar and include fever, headache, muscle pain and rash. “Even though the lyme disease-carrying ticks are less common in the Interior than on the coast of B.C., we know many residents travel around the province frequently, so it’s important they are aware of the signs of lyme disease,” Parker said. For people newly infected with lyme disease, some will develop small red bumps at the site of the tick bite.

Fat accumulations in a cat’s liver can prove fatal to animal


here is nothing cuter than a big chubby cat. Cats are very prone to gaining weight, especially those that are kept indoors and hence tend to be less active. Among other risks of obesity, one of the most common and immedi-

ate risks for fat cats is development of a condition called fatty liver or, in its medical term, hepatic lipidosis. The liver is the organ that has a major role in metabolizing the nutrients derived from food and converting them into glucose which is a ma-

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference 250-860-2356


Dr. Moshe Oz jor energy source for the body’s tissues and organs. Fatty liver is a condition in which the animal stops eating for any reason. With the absence of food, the body shifts fat into the liver in order to produce usable energy. The fat accumulates in the liver cells and causes liver damage, and eventually, if left untreated, leads to liver failure that might

be terminal. The direct cause of this condition is still unknown, but obesity is known to be a contributing factor to the condition development. Any animal can suffer from this condition but cats, especially overweight cats, are most prone to suffer from fatty liver. The symptoms of the disease vary. Because fatty liver is secondary to fasting, there is a wide variety of possible symptoms that are associated with the condition that made the animal stop eating in the first place. The underlying cause can be any form of dis-

ease, or emotional stress and anxiety. The symptoms that are associated with the liver damage are usually vomiting, lack of appetite, lethargy. Along with the progression, the damage to the liver exacerbates and might lead to yellowing of the body, jaundice and severe weight loss. Because the nervous system can use only glucose as a source of energy, liver failure leads to lack of glucose and damage to the nervous system. This condition will usually be manifested by neurological symptoms such as seizures, and eventually coma and death. The condition is diagnosed first by a veterinary physical exam, blood test that shows changes asso-

ciated with liver damage, and the ultimate diagnosis is an ultrasound exam including sampling of the liver tissue with a needle. The treatment for fatty liver is done by aggressive feeding of the animal by either force feeding with a syringe, or placement of a gastric tube. The earlier the condition is diagnosed and treated the better the chances of recovery. The best way to prevent fatty liver is by keeping the animal’s body weight normal. Prevent obesity by feeding a good quality food and limit the amount of food only to the amount required for the animal. Do not overfeed your pet even though it is very tempting. If your cat is over-

weight and suddenly stops eating, do not wait too long—take it to see your veterinarian. Even one or two days of fasting can lead to severe damage. Because fatty liver tends to be secondary to other disease that caused the loss of appetite in first place, measures to find the underlying cause should be taken. Please ask your veterinarian for more information on how to keep your pet’s body in good condition and ways to prevent and manage fatty liver.

There are ways to put retirement assets into a lifetime pension


here is a new investment book worth reading called Pensionize Your Nest Egg: How to Use Product Allocation to Create a Guaranteed Income for Life. It is written by Moshe A. Milevsky, an award winning teacher and author. He has published eight books and has co-authored this book with certified financial planner Alexandra Macqueen. His latest book offers advice on how to plan for a financially successful retirement.


Doreen Smith The authors have coined (and trademarked) the term “pensionize,” which means to convert some retirement income into a guaranteed income that lasts a lifetime. Whether you have a company pension or personal pension, this book is

worth the read. Defined benefit pensions were offered to the majority of employees in North America a few decades ago. The income stream provided a lifetime of income in retirement, and provided a survivor pension for your spouse after death. As many companies reduce operating costs, this type of DB pension is being eliminated. The private sector typically provides a Defined Contribution (DC) pension, and this is invested

in a tax-sheltered investment, and offers no promise of lifetime income. The rest of the population with no employer pension, are responsible for their own retirement. You can pensionize your own individual retirement plan. Take some of your financial assets, and convert them to an individual pension plan to pay you a guaranteed income stream for the rest of your life. Canadians can use a financially engineered product to have a guar-

anteed lifetime income. These are called guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit products. These products provide guaranteed income.


They can also provide exposure to the stock market to protect against inflation. This is very similar to pension plans of the past, and provide a guaranteed payout each year. There are many life events that can wreck even the wealthiest of retirees retirement plans. Many people outlive their retirement income. In today’s low-interest rate environment, a RRIF

is quickly depleted when the annual mandatory RRIF income increases each year. An individual aged 75 must receive 7.85 per cent of the market value of their RRIF assets annually. If that individual has GICs paying one or two per cent per year, they are decreasing their RRIF in excess of five per cent per year. Other risks to contribute to retirement uncertainty are: a stock market decline, unplanned for personal inflation, health issues, unpredictable human longevity (none of us now when our time is up) or families in financial distress. Ask a certified financial planner to provide guidance on how to properly diversify your portfolio, to maximize the upside potential, minimize downside risk, and to meet your retirement goals. You can own your own personal pension

plan with a guaranteed income steam to last your lifetime. The website willhelp identify your financial concerns. Then give me a call to discuss life and retirement planning issues.

Serial entrepreneurship here now


ave you ever been asked to check in on a retail or service venture as a friendly referral from a friend or acquaintance and knew that one day, you would actually make the effort to do so? Last fall, my nurse wife, over the supper table, remarked about the enjoyable salad she picked up at a food bar in Orchard Plaza, Kelowna. Chopped Leaf she said, was a location that others had told her about and while performing some nursing work close by, she decided to check it out. Well, my wife loves salads seven days a week, but she was so impressed with the quality, diversity and price that she insisted I try it too. I finally did it, better late than never. And so recently, I made a determined effort to take my wife there for a Saturday lunch break while shopping. After all, she enjoyed their product earlier, why not again? Well, I was so taken with the staff, product menu and food selection that I enquired about the ownership and quickly discovered, yet another, albeit new, Okanagan entrepreneur. And so my story for this week. About three years ago, Blair and Karla Stevens moved to the Okanagan from Edmonton where Blair has his roots. He left the educational world from Grade 11 when his father, an entrepreneur in his own right, started Crown Tire in Alberta many years ago and who suggested to Blair that he could accomplish success through â&#x20AC;&#x153;street smartsâ&#x20AC;? if he applied himself to open-minded knowledge acquisition. Karla, on the other hand, attended the University of Alberta majoring in business administration. After leaving school, Blair entered the construction industry to begin his baptism into the world of work and at age 19, after making some money, acquired his entrepreneurial beginnings through a food franchise named Blimpysâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; part of a U.S. sandwich and yogurt franchise operation. He gave Blimpys his heart and soul for three years, acquiring sufficient funds to launch his own franchise operation, Wok


Joel Young Box Asian take out. The Wok Box concept took off and Blair and Karla decided to move to the valley as Karla and her family had vacationed here in the past and she loved the quality of life the Okanagan offered. The couple married after moving here in 2009 and Blair slowly exited Wok Box ready for new challenges, remaining a shareholder in the Wok Box organization. I began this column highlighting serial entrepreneurs, so let me for a moment delve into this realm. Once thought exotic, serial entrepreneurs seem to be everywhere in places we might least expect.

From their innate tolerance to their creative use of resources to their sixth sense of when to exit, they have a lot to teach us and the more traditional entrepreneurial venturist in our midst. A serial entrepreneur is an entrepreneur who starts a number of new ventures after already starting and exiting a previous one.



Our classic entrepreneur is often guided by a belief in a market opportunity for a particular product or service or innovative and unique technology. Such an entrepreneur

follows an inspiration and is able to motivate others to follow their similar dreams. In contrast to a single venture entrepreneur, a serial entrepreneur may decide to treat entrepreneurship as a profession of sorts. He or she has the powerful ability to repeatedly recognize a market opportunity. This may often rely less on personal intuition and inspiration and more on a careful analysis of the market opportunity itself. With that background, Blair and Karla methodically determined they were ready for their new journey and budgeted three years of their lives to perfect the concept for Chopped Leaf Salad Bar, with the strong belief that fast food can be high quality and healthy and, with great service, can readily satisfy a gap

Chopped Leaf second venture for Albertan behind Wok Box franchise Young from B3 in the market providing healthy food for a healthy lifestyle. Hence, Blair requested that the Chopped Leaf team he assembled to begin his second franchise operation journey be tasked to create a premium menu and service offering that would appeal to a wide range of demographics and serve specific niches as gluten-free and vegan lifestyles. Once the journey for Chopped Leaf began, within a year the menu creation, design and website were complete and the Chopped Leaf brand was launched in Kelowna in the spring of 2009 in Orchard Plaza.

This wonderful, innovative, eco-friendly restaurant was immediately well-received with its service offering to dine in or take out with catering options for its full menu line of chef designed salads, wraps, sandwiches, appetizers and soups. Through its website www.choppedleaf. ca, Facebook and monthly newsletters, Chopped Leaf connects with its customers to inform them about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up and coming and informative food facts. Blair, already being familiar from taking Wok Box from one store to more than 70 in a sixyear period, found himself feeling quite confident that his entrepreneur-

first. It is. That is why it is important that you do your homework before you choose a coach. Finding a coach who has been professionally trained is critical. He or she will understand the importance of setting up a safe environment that honours confidentiality, reserves judgement and encourages personal growth. The success of the coaching relationship will depend on the qualifications and competence of your coach as well as the dynamic between the two of you. Each coach will have an individual style and you will want to find someone whose approach is compatible with your personality. The key things you can expect from a good coach are: to get more focus, new information and/or perspectives on issues you may have

been grappling with for a while, someone to hold you accountable for your own progress (or resistance to it) and, a cheerleader of sorts, who will celebrate every small and big success with you. Getting focused is the foundation of coaching. It can help you to cut through a lot of information, data and emotions to get to the heart of whatever issue is pushing you to make changes in your life. That is why the front end of a coaching arrangement will typically involve a personal questionnaire, self assessments, and a lot of talking. Taking the time to gather all this information upfront is important because it helps both you and your coach to understand your behaviour within the bigger picture of your life. It also provides a rich source of data to promote understanding of certain behavioural patternsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

both positive and negative. Next you will identify what you want to change, typically with two or three things is plenty to start. Your coach can help you to refine your coaching


plan, set clear goals and create checkpoints for your progress. The coaching process from here is a combination of ongoing reflection and action. The coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to keep you moving through that process in a supportive way that also holds you accountable. It is surprising how much of a difference it

can make when there is someone to report in to who is cheering you on. Successful coaching is built on trust and requires a personal commitment to making positive change from both parties. It is a true partnership. The benefits of coaching are just touched on here and every coaching arrangement is unique. One thing is common thoughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;successful coaching can be a life altering experience. My own experience, both as a coach and as someone receiving coaching, has proven that time and again.

OUTDOOR BURNING OPTIONS ENCOURAGED Burning permits are available for eligible property owners in the Central Okanagan. The outdoor burning season will end Saturday, April 30th or earlier depending on the fire hazard. While most people are not allowed to burn outdoors, everyone is encouraged to use other options available such as chipping, composting and the free year round drop-off of yard and garden waste (up to 250 kg.) at the Glenmore Landfill and Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre. Residents with curbside collection may also use their green-lid wheeled waste container to dispose of compostable yard waste through the bi-weekly program. Those eligible to burn (properties one hectare or larger) must have an approved permit from their local fire authority. Property owners in the Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas that are eligible to burn must obtain a permit from the Regional District by calling 250-469-6223, Monday to Friday (excluding holidays) from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Collect calls are accepted and long distance charges do not apply to calls placed from cellular phones. To determine whether burning is allowed on a particular day, those with permits must first call the Outdoor Burning Hotline (250-470-5155). The Venting Index must be 65 or greater and the Air Quality Index 25 or lower before igniting any permitted fire. As the valley has unique weather conditions and topography and venting is rarely good in the morning, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also recommended that approved burning take place in late morning or early afternoon.

Astman takes a dance with Che Nicholl presents W hat becomes a legend most? How does it happen that one human face can sometimes sum up the ethos and zeitgeist of an era and place? These are the sorts of questions that might beset the mind of gallery visitors who come to see the new exhibition full of images of the 20th century South American revolutionary Che Guevara at the Kelowna Art Gallery, opening next weekend. Right now many among us readily recognize Che’s face, but for how many years will that remain true? A colleague of mine recently showed an image of Elvis Presley to her art history class and only about half of the group knew who he was. So even if someone does achieve widespread fame, what are the factors that feed into that fame’s staying power? Perhaps the most telling and prophetic words of the20th century were spoken by Andy Warhol, when he said that there would be no more famous artists in the future, but that instead everyone would be famous, but only for 15 minutes. The notion of a halflife seems apt, where rather than the diminishing radio-activity of a substance, it is one’s recognition power that vanishes at a set rate over a given period of time, according to some arcane equation. Toronto-based artist Barbara Astman became interested in the phenomenon of “Che chic” when on a visit to Cuba several years ago. She bought a T-shirt with his face on it


Jennifer Smith

Liz Wylie to bring home, and wearing it while dancing, created her Dancing with Che series of photographs in 2003. But evidently, Che Guevara was not finished with Barbara Astman. The Che gift shop idea gradually formed in her mind, and the Kelowna Art Gallery will be the first place to show this new piece. To create her installation, she used 31 different Dancing with Che images, and ordered runs of various souvenir items from suppliers who custom made keychains, playing cards, coasters, mugs, T-shirts, etc. These will all be in display in a faux gift shop setting in our Reynolds Gallery space, where nothing will actually be for sale. This aspect of the scenario will also prod visitors to consider their own inner urges: Consumerism, desire, the pleasure of collecting. People might even ponder the notion of souvenirs— why do we want to bring home items that are printed with an image of what we have seen and where we have been: Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, a Mountie on a horse? There must be something primal in this that could be traced back for millennia.

BARBARA ASTMAN, Dancing with Che: Enter Through the Gift Shop, 2011, selected works-inprogress. Tourists who have visited the Parthenon in Athens early in the morning have witnessed a staff member carrying a bucket and scattering chips of marble around the site, as every day hundreds of tourists scoop up a bit or two into their pockets to take home. Without replenishing the supply each the day the site would be bare in no time. Another issue, of course, is that of these objects being placed in an art gallery. Marcel Duchamp was the ground-breaking conceptual artist of the last century who introduced the idea that art was all a question of context. Put anything in a museum or gallery and call it art and voila: it is art. We now accept this notion, however grudgingly. But these commercially produced souvenir products may still not seem very much like art to some viewers. The concept of originality dies hard, and these mass-produced items (although for this purpose the print run was very small) could be seen as questioning our cultural value of an ori-

ginal work, made by hand and with artistic skill. Basically then, this exhibition is a conceptual art piece, that is, a work that is based upon an idea, and need not actually have been created in order for us to think about experiencing it. Unlike a work in either traditional or new media, which is the product of a process of making, conceptual work can be communicated in a description or instructions. Often, conceptual art nudges us to challenge our existing ideas, and not only just about art. Viewers can decide for themselves when they come to see this exhibition whether the work is successful or not based on their own thought processes, as they examine all the shiny new merchandise, which they are not able to buy. Barbara Astman: Dancing with Che: Enter through the Gift Shop opens to the public on Saturday, May 7 and runs until July 31. Liz Wylie is the curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery. 250-762-2226

When Capital News columnist Shelley Nicholl started writing her witty, humour/opinion column, the kids weren’t even conceived of, let alone battling over the laundry as she tried to meet a deadline. Somewhere between her jobs in Surrey, on the Island, and in the local Okanagan newspapers, though, her two daughters began to make their presence known, eventually dominating her print presence when she moved to the Okanagan Valley. And with hopes of becoming a NewYork Times reporter, taking adventure vacations in Belize and eating gut-splittingly spicy curry—as she puts it—Sidney and Madison Smith became little celebrities of their own, in a big-fish-small-lake kind of way. This suited her youngest, 13-year-old Madison, just fine and she’s pretty thrilled with the book her mother published this

Foo Fighters offer a welcomed head-bangy change of pace FOO FIGHTERS: WASTING LIGHT (RCA)


I am a firm believer in big reactionary pendulum swings in popular taste. Once one genre of music becomes too darn popular, the mood of the public wanes and something completely different comes along. Right now there is a slew of dance pop women dominating the charts with the likes of Pink, Lady Ga Ga, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and even the Black Eyed Peas to some degree. This homogeneity of sound can lead to some surprising sea changes and that

Bruce Mitchell is certainly the case with this week’s No.1 selling album, Wasting Light by Foo Fighters. Of course Foo Fighters have always been popular but not to this degree. This, their eighth album, is their first ever to reach the top of the charts in both Canada and their native USA, as well as a dozen other countries

around the world. Even the Foo Fighters themselves are surprised at this enormous success since Wasting Light isn’t breaking any real new ground for the band and, in fact, this new disc is actually a throwback to yesteryear. This smoking blend of post grunge, hard rock and metal riffage was recorded in Dave Grohl’s humble garage using reel to reel analog tape (and as a clever marketing stunt, the original tape was chopped up into three-inch bits and when you buy your early copy of Wasting Light you get your share of a slice of the actual recording tape). There is even a small throwback to the glory days of Grohl’s involvement with Nirvana in that producer Butch Vig is on hand and Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic makes a cameo on I Should Have Known. But it is the two singles Rope and Walk that are garnering all of the attention with their hyper

aggressive rock guitars, and in-your-face sonics, sung and played at ear splitting volumes (The liner note is also a throwback where the band encourages you to “play at maximum volume.”) Anyway, the ladies of the night and their club music are here to stay for a long while, but in the car ride on the way home from the clubs you are most likely to hear some good old fashioned headbanging music for some hard rock respite. B

ginal tracks. My fave of the four is the tech/reggae (with Beatles overtones) of An Easy Life, while the title track Meyrin Fields is pure pop rock that will endear itself to fans of Broken Bells’ earlier effort. The closing song, Heartless Empire, morphs nicely from arena rock guitars and synth treatments to a cool surf guitar blend. Fans will want to take note of this tasty little bon bon. C+


The subtitle of this live concert CD is Celebrating The Genius Of Ray Charles. And as if to prove just how versatile and universally popular and accomplished Ray Charles was as a performer, this celebration features three stars from a wide spectrum of genres


Broken Bells remains the duo of Shins leader and singer James Mercer and tech wizard Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse.

Roy Orbison was on three different labels within just a few months in the early stages of his estimable career. He had a minor rockabilly hit titled Oobie Doobie at the home of Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins on the Memphis Sun label. Then he shifted to the RCA label that didn’t see much potential in the 23-year-old singer and writer, so Orbison moved on to the new and tiny independent Monument label where he quickly ran off a string of now classic pop/rock hits such as Only The Lonely, Running Scared, Crying, In Dreams, It’s Over, Dream Baby and, arguably his finest signature song, Oh Pretty Woman. This new collection is a first in that it finally collects all of Orbison’s Asides for Monument in their original Mono versions that had until now not been released on CD

Oddly enough, Nelson gets the lion’s share of vocal duties with his flat and often nasally voice, while to my ears Wynton Marsalis really shines on his numbers. Norah Jones occasionally shares a duet with Nelson which doesn’t exactly mesh gears in the best blend, but then again, Nelson’s voice has become something of a comfort zone for a lot of old fans over the years.

Sprboeing Kelowna’s The Capers release debut album Summer W GET OUT SEE IT LIVE



Kelowna’s The Capers, a Kelowna-based band, will celebrate the release of their debut album Ring True, this Saturday with a special performance at the Habitat. Spanning influences from early rock n’ roll to folk and country western, The Capers aim to fill the dance floor in performance, and lay down original songs in a true way on record. Just like a good storyteller, there’s something about the honesty and energy behind their songs that captures listeners and doesn’t let them go even after the last note has rang out. If you’ve ever seen The Capers live then you know that their music will get even the most nonchalant worked up into a frenzy. Ring True was record-

18-year-old sister Sydney to her life was likely not her best career move or financial decision, but says that’s why this book is all about the other little things that happen along the road of life and the important role her kids have played in building her own happiness. “When you think of all the things that happen with kids, it’s not logical, but you love your kids and they bring a lot to your life. They bring a lot of humour to your life and a lot of fun,” she said.

Pulling kids from the neighbourhood and friends both girls have had roaming the house for years into the project to use as illustrations, the book is punctuated by funny mugshots that just might remind you of your kids or the ones down the road. “It’s just designed to kind of poke fun at being a parent,” said Nicholl. “If there is a moral message, it’s kind of: Lighten up— you’re doing a good job.” And with chapters like “Surviving the family jungle” and “Dealing with labour issues” it’s sure

MAWHINNEY, DORIS IRENE Passed away peacefully on April 21,2011 at the age of 91 years. Born in Toronto on September 1,1919, Doris was predeceased by her husband, Charles Mawhinney, parents Sid and Irene Axworthy, her brothers George and Norman Axworthy and her grandson, Ryan Mawhinney. She is lovingly remembered by her brother Douglas Axworthy, her children and their spouses, Norman (Lucille), Sharon (Frank) and David (Bonnie), her grandchildren Julia, Brent, Brenda, Marria, Rebecca,Tavis,Tara and Bryce as well as 18 great grandchildren and many other caring relatives and good friends.Doris grew up in Willow Heights (near North Battleford), Saskatchewan where she developed her strong love of family and, living through both the Great Depression and WWII, the skills needed to successfully cope with life’s many challenges. Later, striving side by side with “Charlie” while having very little in the way of material wealth, she shouldered the physical, emotional and financial challenges of raising a young family in Surrey during the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. Doris’ children remember so well the strength of her love and commitment as a mom to meeting their needs whenever and however she could. In 1972, Doris and Charlie moved to Kelowna where they made new, enduring friendships as they enjoyed seeing the growth, near and afar, of their grandchildren and great grandchildren. Doris loved to work in her garden and tend her flowers over the years, particularly in her and Charlie’s Dougall Road home. In her final years, at Sun Pointe Village in Rutland, this was one of her favorite seasonal activities of which she still spoke with fond expectations during the winter months. Special thanks from the family are extended to the Sun Pointe staff for their caring devotion to Doris and her quality of life. Allowing her to flourish as the “puzzle lady” will always have a special place in our memories of her time with you. We also greatly appreciate the care and commitment to Doris’s needs shown by the Interior Health community care nurses and respiratory care personnel. In recent weeks Doris’s struggles with the challenges of COPD had taken their toll and we take comfort in our belief that mom/grandma/gigi is now free of those limitations, at peace and enjoying her reunion with loved ones who have preceded her to better place. She is loved and missed dearly. In lieu of flowers,donations may be made to the Canadian Red Cross at 5-1414 Hunter Court. A memorial service will be held at Sun Pointe Village , (700 Rutland Rd. North) on Friday, April 29, at 9:30AM Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting 250-860-7077

BALDEO, ALBERT HENRY Rev. Albert Baldeo, “Tropic Al,” passed away at his home in Kelowna, BC on April 25th, 2011, lovingly surrounded by his wife of 48 years Beryl, their three daughters Ramona (Felis), Kim (Ron), and Kaylyn (Craig), and their eight grandchildren, (Keanna, Zachary, Kara, Elody, Rachel, Abby, Matthew, and Luke). It brought to a close a remarkable life on earth, a life shared and beautifully co-created with his beloved spouse. A life full of love and laughter. A life given to God and others. Born in Penal, Trinidad on April 21, 1930, Albert was one of 7 children born to Elodie and Arthur Baldeo. He was a teacher for ten years in Trinidad before studying Theology at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick and St. Stephen’s Theological Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta. It was at St. Stephen’s where he charmed a beautiful rural Alberta girl named Beryl Hobbs. They fell in love, married, and moved back to Trinidad, where he served as a Presbyterian Minister for 8 years. While they were in the Caribbean, Albert and Beryl were very active in both church and community, setting the template for future places of service. In 1971, the Baldeo family moved to Canada, where Albert served in the United Church of Canada for over thirty years. They have lived in Kelowna since 1981, where Albert was minister of St. Paul’s United Church until his “retirement” in 1995. Rev. Baldeo’s life and work, of course, could not be contained in a simple job description. In his preaching, in his public prayers, in the thousands of weddings and funerals he officiated, he demonstrated his enormous gifts as an orator - part passionate prophet, part stand-up comedian. He loved to entertain with humour, and lots of it. He also loved to encourage others to look heavenward, to embrace life with an “attitude of gratitude.” This was seen in his poems – over the years, he wrote thousands of positive and uplifting rhymes and gave them freely to family, friends, and strangers. He wrote a weekly column of pastoral reflections in the Capital News. He was Kelowna’s Chaplain, its Spiritual Concierge, and he was honoured to be part of “the hands and feet of God” in his own city. To that end, Albert was devoted to Rotary International. And he nurtured, advocated, and raised funds for countless organizations related to poverty and other social causes. Aids Kelowna, The United Way, and the Union Gospel Mission were just a few that benefitted. In 1983, he was Kelowna’s Citizen of the year. In 1992 and 2002, he received the Queen’s Commemorative Medal. And in 2003, he was presented with the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award. An opportunity to pay your last respects and to visit with the family will be on Friday, April 29, 2011 from 7 – 9 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. A Funeral Service will be on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 10:30 am from Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC It not a cliché to say he was loved by all who met him, for he took great interest in the thoughts and feelings of anyone he met. Survived by his wife Beryl, his three daughters and families, his sister Sybil (Rani) Sankar and his brothers Alfred and Gerry Baldeo,Rev. Albert Baldeo will be deeply missed. Minister. Husband. Father. Teacher. Mentor. Friend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Paul’s United Church, the BC Parkinson’s Society, Kelowna General Hospital Foundation – Cardiology. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting, 250-860-7077. B13

Day of mourning for workers The annual Day of Mourning, April 28, commemorates workers who have been killed, injured, or suffered illness as a result of their jobs. According to WorkSafe BC, in British Columbia last year 143 workers died and 95,600 were injured. The Canadian Labour Congress initiated the national Day of Mourning in 1984. Canada was the first country to formally commemorate workers who have been killed at work and 27 years later, the Day of Mourning is observed throughout the world. The North Okanagan Labour Council and WorkSafe BC will hold a ceremony in Kelowna with presentations by: â&#x20AC;˘ Kelowna mayor Sharon Shepherd â&#x20AC;˘ Debra Critchley, delegate, North Okanagan Labour Council â&#x20AC;˘ Shawn Mitton, regional prevention manager, WorkSafeBC â&#x20AC;˘ Nick Perry, injured young worker â&#x20AC;˘ Phil Huxley, father of fatally injured worker. The event starts at 12:30 p.m. at Ben Lee Park, at the corner of Franklyn and Houghton Roads in Rutland. Parking is available on Houghton Road. A list of ceremonies around B.C. can be found at
