Wanted Hells Angel turns himself in Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

On Tuesday, a Canada-wide warrant had been issued for the arrest of Kelowna Hells Angels member Robert Leonard Thomas, 46, one of seven men charged with the murder of Kelowna resident Dain Phillips. “I suspect he’s probably pondering what his options are at this time,” said Supt. Pat Fogarty, who leads the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. Wednesday at 3 a.m., Thomas opted to turn himself in at the Kelowna RCMP detachment. Six others have already been arrested and charged with second degree murder of Phillips, 51. Phillips is being remembered by friends and family on a memorial web site as a “gentle giant who never had a bad word to say about anyone.” It’s a description that makes his violent end, allegedly at the hands of a pack of Hells Angels and their associates, all the more confounding to police. “This is a senseless murder over a dispute for what?” said Fogarty during a Tuesday afternoon press conference where he announced full patch Hells Angels, Norman

Cocks, 31, and Thomas, 46, are accused of the second degree murder of Phillips. They’re the first full patch-wearing Hells Angels charged with murder in the club’s 28-year history in B.C. Five others with connections to the notorious biker gang also face the same charge. Robert Cocks, a 52-year-old president of the support club, the Throttle Lockers, and club associates Daniel and Matthew McRae, Anson Schell and Thomas Vaughan all appeared in Kelowna provincial court Monday and were remanded in custody until July 21. While Phillips’ accused killers are all known to police and in some cases have lengthy criminal records, Fogarty insisted that the father of three wasn’t embroiled in any gang or criminal activity June 12, when he was beaten to death at the intersection of McCurdy and Gibson roads. In fact, the fatal series of events that, initially, appeared to be part of little more than an outdoor brawl, now seems to be that Phillips was attempting to “do the right thing” for his family. “This is a sad and tragic event involving a father See Wanted A7

Kelowna youth suspended after head stomping incident Tim Petruk CONTRIBUTOR

The teenaged lacrosse player who suffered serious injuries on Sunday when an opposing player allegedly stepped on his head after cross-checking him to the ground, still doesn’t know if he has a broken bone in his neck. An exhausted-looking Blake Rose spoke briefly with a Kamloops newspaper reporter outside his family’s Kamloops home on Tuesday afternoon. The 15-year-old, who plays on the midget B Kamloops Rattlers lacrosse team, was hurt during Sunday’s game against the Kelowna Kodiaks at Memorial Arena. According to Kamloops RCMP, a

Kelowna player cross-checked Rose and knocked him to the ground. Police say the Kelowna player then “stomped” on Rose’s head. He was rushed to Royal Inland Hospital, and has been in a neck brace since. “It’s still painful,” Rose said, declining to take part in an on-camera interview. He said doctors still haven’t confirmed the extent of his injuries. Blake’s father, Patrick Rose, told CTV News he still can’t believe he watched his teenage son’s head get stomped on during a lacrosse game over the weekend. Patrick Rose told CTV News the extent of his 15-year-old son Blake’s injuries is unknown, but that he will be in a neck brace for the next week.

“I was in shock. I’d never seen anything like that in my life in sports,” Patrick Rose said. “The kid stood over him, looked at him and stomped on his head.” The Kelowna Minor Lacrosse Association has suspended the player involved indefinitely—though Rose says he would still like him to face assault charges. “I feel sorry for my son and I feel sorry for lacrosse because it will give it the reputation it doesn’t deserve, unfortunately,” Patrick Rose said. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said Mounties are now investigating and will determine whether or not criminal charges will be sought against the Kelowna player alleged to have injured Rose. “There has to be some reasonable

action taken if the contact was outside the norm for what is expected in that sport,” he said. Learned said the Kelowna player could potentially face assault charges, depending on what the investigation uncovers. Kelowna Minor Lacrosse Association president Clint Alexander said he couldn’t offer any details about the incident, but said the suspect Kelowna player won’t be suiting up any time soon. “I’m aware of this incident and I’m not free to comment,” he said. “The player in question from Kelowna has been suspended indefinitely.” Alexander said the player’s eligibility will be reviewed once investigations by the Kelowna Minor Lacrosse

Association and the RCMP have concluded. Kamloops Minor Lacrosse Association president Ellie Bradley is also remaining tight-lipped. “I will not comment on the details of this incident as it is under police investigation,” she said in an email to Kamloops This Week, after repeated attempts to contact her. “I have been in contact with the player’s family. Everyone involved with Kamloops Minor Lacrosse is thinking of them at this time, and we pray that this young man will have a full recovery.” The investigation is ongoing, and police are looking to speak to anyone who was present at Sunday’s game. Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-8283000.


Tangled up mule deer doe gets snipped free by persistent COs Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

A mule deer doe and her two little fawns are offering thanks today to the Conservation Officer Service for a sleep and freedom. Calls to the COs over the past week regarding a doe whose back end was all tangled up in wire were to no avail when officers were unable to find the animal in trouble. The young family was pictured in the area of Knox Mountain Park in the city’s north end, but the doe was mobile enough to be able to stay out of the way of people— even those intent on helping her. Until Wednesday, that is. Tanner Beck, a new CO working in the Kelowna office for the summer, had recently completed his training on how to use the tranquilizer gun available to subdue problem wildlife for transport.

So when they got a current report on the whereabouts of the doe and her twins, CO Ed Seitz and Beck headed off to see if they could help out. Under Seitz’s experienced eye, Beck fired the tranquilizer dart into the deer and then proceeded

to snip away the wire tangled in her back legs and hips. Seitz said while they were working the fawns were not overly concerned, although they did dart away and then back again. The ensnaring stuff turned out to be the stiff

wire from a tomato cage the deer had picked up somewhere in her travels. He said it’s not the first time he’s seen wildlife that’s gotten into a predicament, but it was certainly different from the usual calls they get.

W WESTSIDE DAZE West Kelowna woman joins right Past Canada Day cake baker takes on new role to die lawsuit Marshall Jones

Alistair Waters



A Westbank woman has joined a lawsuit aimed at giving Canadians the right to physician-assisted suicide. Gloria Taylor, 63, was diagnosed with ALS, popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, 18 months ago. Taylor said as a long-time believer in an individual’s right to decide when to end their life, she wanted to be part of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association’s challenge to Canada’s assisted suicide law. “I will die with dignity,” vowed Taylor, whose condition is terminal. “When we win (the legal challenge), all Canadians will have the right to die with dignity if they are terminally ill.” Taylor said she considered launching her own legal challenge last year but did not know where to start. So, when she heard about the BCCLA lawsuit, launched in April, she wanted to be named as a plaintiff in that case. On Tuesday, she petitioned the B.C. Supreme Court to have her name added to the lawsuit. Taylor said her condition has been deteriorating and at a news conference in Vancouver Tuesday, said her doctors have said she has a year left to live. Despite her condition, she has a walker, as well as a motorized wheelchair, and tries to walk a little every day, refusing to allow her condition to rob her of her remaining mobility. She said she has lost the use of her hands but overall is doing as well as a person with ALS can expect. “I thank God for every day I have left,” she told the Capital News. Despite the pain she faces all the time, Taylor said she is determined to help others win the right to die with dignity. And she is doing so with another well-known Canadian right-to-die advocate in mind. Eighteen years ago Victoria’s Sue Rodriquez, another ALS sufferer, unsuccessfully petitioned Canada’s Supreme Court for the right to a physician-assisted suicide. The court ruled against Rodriguez’s request by a slim 5-4 margin. Four months later Rodriguez died at her home with the help of an anonymous physician. No one was ever charged in her death. Taylor said she is carrying the torch lit by the Victoria woman. “In my mind, Sue Rodriquez was a hero,” said Taylor. “Eighteen years ago it was defeated by just one vote (the 5-4 ruling). This time we are going to win.” The case is currently before the B.C. Supreme Court and if denied, it would have to go to the B.C. Court of Appeals before a possible return to the Supreme Court of Canada. Taylor said she hopes the case does not have to go that far. But if it does, she is prepared. “I have a plan B,” she said about her plans to end her life on her terms.

Next week’s Westside Daze will feature a parade as always, but a new tradition may begin this year by honouring outstanding members of the community as Parade Marshal. The Westside Daze committee announced Wednesday that Peter Klein will be the first to take the position, largely because of his volunteer duties and of course baking cakes for the last dozen or so Westside Daze events until this year. Committee spokesperson Wayne Moore says they wanted to focus the spotlight on someone who has been unheralded in his community efforts.

ment deadline approaches, the lineup at City Hall is expected to get longer. Residents can avoid the lineup by making arrangements with their financial institutions for online or pay in-person. “Taxes can be paid in person at City Hall or at banking institutions,” said George King, revenue manager for the city. “City Hall closes at 4 p.m., however, we have deposit boxes available at our front entrance, as well as the Doyle Avenue parking lot exit and at the Parkinson Recreation Centre.” The deposit boxes will be emptied at midnight on July 4. Property taxes can be paid by cash, cheque, money order or debit card. And don’t forget to claim the home own-

The immediate penalty is not the only one to worry about if you do not pay on time. A further five per cent penalty will be added if property taxes are not paid by Aug. 3. The penalties are legislated under the Community Charter and therefore are not discretionary.

When he started working with the material—old pants, sweaters, T-shirts and such—he discovered even the consignment shops aren’t particularly environmentally friendly as the clothing which is donated, but doesn’t sell in the non-profit organizations’ stores, aren’t just given away; the items are destroyed to ensure people will take the time to buy them up rather than wait for them to be given away free. “I hope the piece will help people just look at that thing they have and think, can I get a few more days out of this T-shirt?” said Charzeski. But first they’ll have to figure out what the strange trailer of clothing/Knox Mountain top is as it sits in Tugboat Bay. One of the more unique elements to this year’s Canada Day Festivities, Charzewski’s second hand Knox top will be part of a GeoTag Art project the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is putting on this year.

For those who might prefer to stick to the more mainstream events, the downtown waterfront will be a hopping celebration again this year. “Every year we all get a little nostalgic about the wonderful place we call home. It’s a time when we can’t quite put our finger on the emotion, but then it dawns on us that as Canadians we have so much to be thankful for and proud of,” said Renata Mills, executive director of Festivals Kelowna and the mastermind behind the local public celebration. Festivities this year will include the 38th Annual Folkfest in Prospera Place, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., where people can enjoy five hours of live multicultural performances and ethnic food from many cultures. There will be Canada

HOW TO ROAST RED PEPPER ON THE GRILL: Place a clean, fresh red pepper directly on the grill top. Turn your pepper frequently, as needed until the skin has turned completely black & starts to blister. When the entire pepper skin has turned black, remove the pepper from the grill & place it into a bowl. Cover the bowl with an airtight lid. Allow the peppers to steam in the airtight container for 10 - 15 minutes. Uncover, removed from the bowl (or bag) & the red pepper skin will slide off easily.

Council remains dumbfounded on how to apply transit changes Marshall Jones CONTRIBUTOR

District of West Kelowna councillors may be behind the wheel of their own bus services, but they still can’t seem to figure out which way to turn. Faced with either bigger bills for greater service or scaling back to keep budgets in line, councillors opted for neither in lieu of more information. After an open house two weeks ago to hear from transit riders, along with written comments and an earful from local high school students, councillors are looking for a way around three levels of service proposed by B.C. Transit. That would include leaving it like it is, cutting service to Smith Creek, Bear Creek and Horizon neighborhoods and a more severe cut that would see just the most popular

Duane Ophus

Doug Findlater

Glenrosa route kept along with the new Bus Rapid Transit addition. Bus Rapid Transit would connect Westbank to UBC Okanagan along Highway 97 through Kelowna with limited stops and frequent service. Instead, councillors challenged B.C. Transit to try again and use new roads they perhaps were unaware of, such as Asquith Road which connects Shannon Lake to Smith Creek. “It seems obvious to

me that the reason we can’t come to a decision is we don’t like anything in front of us,” said Coun. Duane Ophus. “Can we make Smith Creek more viable by extending through Asquith Road…to come up with what I would call option four.” It’s unclear exactly what council’s no-decision decision will have on the rapid transit plan. Transit officials said they needed a decision by early August but district staff said that

was probably not enough time to come up with a fourth option. B.C. Transit’s recommendation would cut the total cost of transit in West Kelowna by about $900,000 per year. Of the total $3.6 million cost of transit here, the municipality currently pays about $1.4 million. That figure is likely to drop to about $1.2 million after recent negotiations between the municipality and B.C. Transit. The two organizations left it hoping to get together sometime soon. “This council and this staff is new to transit,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. “And we are developing more understanding and literacy on transit issues. It impacts on peoples’ lives. We have to find the money somewhere…chopping the routes doesn’t strike me as the best way to do that.” FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

The festival further expanded to include junior and masters teams two years ago. “Due to demand from our club members, and those from visiting teams, we decided last year to include mixed teams of all ages,” said KDBC president Deb Champion. “I’m also thrilled to report that due to the popularity of our festival, we’ve had to expand it to two days for the first time this year.” The festival will be opened by the traditional dragon dance, performed by the members. Also included will be a beer garden, Taiko drummers and several other cultural activities.

“Dragon boating is a fantastic spectator sport,” remarks Champion. “The races are short, two to three minutes, and exciting. We urge the public to come on down and see what we are all about.” Dragon boating is an ancient Chinese sport spanning 2,000 years. It consists of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer, often referred to as “22 hearts beating as one.” The Kelowna Dragon Boat Festival runs on Saturday, July 9, and Sunday, July 10, at Waterfront Park. For more information about the club or the festival, see or call 250-491-1961.

‘Ordinary citizen’ ends up dead Wanted from A1 simply trying to protect his kids,” said Fogarty. “Dain Phillips’ sons were in a dispute with the McCrae brothers who were associated with Norm Cocks of the Hells Angels…(they) were ordinary citizens in a dispute with the wrong people.” While there’s no information on what prompted the dispute, police say Phillips set up a meeting so both parties could discuss and work out their differences and put an end to threats that had been escalating in recent weeks. That plan went off course when, en route to the meeting, Phillips car crossed paths with the other two other vehicles and a decision was made to pull over at the vacant intersection. “Mr. Phillips comes up with his hands raised and everyone gets out of the vehicle,” said Fogarty, explaining there were two vehicles with seven pas-

Robert Leonard Thomas sengers on the McCrae brothers side, and there were three from the Phillips in one car. The six-foot-three man then faced a torrent of blows from bats, hammers and other weapons that police have chosen not to disclose. With the 51-year-old on the ground, suffering from his injuries, the seven men piled back into the two cars. Phillips was transported to Kelowna General Hospital and died the next day as a result of his injuries, with his wife and family at his side.

While no one from the family has made a statement, Phillips’ obituary reads; “Dad could be best characterized as a hard working man with a lust for life, and he was a family man in every sense of the term. Dad served his family with all of his huge heart up until the minute he died.” However, as the Phillips family faced their struggles in the days following the deadly beating, investigators got a break. “We had 60 investigators working on this case,” said Supt. Bill McKinnon, noting that it was when Combine Forces investigators realized a crossover from one of their files and the RCMP case, things came together. One of the seven alleged killers, police revealed, is believed to be connected to the gangland style, drive-by shooting last year on Leon Avenue and Abbott Street. Last September, in what appeared to be a

failed hit on a 27 year old Edmonton man witnesses reported seeing an older, dark coloured SUV pulled up beside a Grey Nissan sedan, firing numerous shots. By the time Mounties arrived both vehicles had fled, but police located the Nissan a short while later at Kelowna General Hospital, where the 27-yearold driver was being treated for a non life-threatening gunshot wound. The victim, who was known for criminal code and drug related offences, and was later released, offering little information to police. The suspect vehicle was later recovered, burned, in West Kelowna and, from a public perspective, little has happened since. It may have faded further into memory, but to get the Phillips case squared away police had to show a bit of their hand. “Throughout the province, CFSEU’s chief ob-


COMBINED FORCES Special Enforcement Unit Supt. Pat Fogarty speaks to the media at press conference held at Kelowna RCMP detachment on Tuesday. jective is to preserve public safety and to disrupt organized criminal activity that negatively impacts the lives of ordinary citizens whether that’s in Vancouver or Kelowna,” said Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s chief officer, Supt. Doug Kiloh.

“The final outcome here is that our communities are safer as a result of these latest arrests.” The Kelowna Hells Angels was the most recent chapter sanctioned in British Columbia. The club was officially established in 2007, al-

though members were active in Kelowna prior to that date. The Throttle Lockers is considered by law enforcement as a support club to the Kelowna Hells Angels. They received their “patch” in 2009.

Canada Post back-to-work federal legislation Open letter to Dan Albas, OkanaganConservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla: I would like to acknowledge first that your hands are tied regarding the debate in the House of Commons regarding the Canada Post labour dispute. Obviously, the official position of the Conservative Party of Canada is not crafted, or at least not crafted entirely,

by you. With this said, and assuming that your statements are from the heart and not just a public statement validating a vote you are obligated to make, I have a frustration to air with your position. As you have mentioned yourself, in Canada there are certain rights which have become cornerstones of our distinctly Canadian demo-

cratic system. The right to vote, access to health care, and access to a social security program are all important parts of Canadian identity. So, when I hear you acknowledge that your party’s legislation raises “legitimate concerns about the right to strike,” and then choose to support the bill anyway, I hear you equating the right to strike in Canada with the right to have your

post delivered quickly. This is deeply upsetting to me. While I, like all Canadians, appreciate getting my mail in a timely manner, there are certain parts of our Canadian political system—indeed, cornerstones of that system—that I do not think are equatable with getting mail delivered in less than two weeks. The right to strike is one of these

cornerstones. In conclusion, MP Albas, I would like very much if you would (adjust your position) in a way that gives the democratic institutions of Canada the respect they deserve. The right to strike is not equatable to the “right to speedy mail,” and I’d like to hear you acknowledge that. Tyler Michaels, Comment posted on Capital News’ Facebook

Accountant’s PST example all wrong To the editor: Re: Accountant Makes A Case For Keeping The Harmonized Sales Tax, June 28 Capital News. I am incensed that a person with a professional designation of Certified General Accountant uses an example of manufacturing a desk accumulating 21 per cent provincial sales tax. This was an argument previously used, even by MLAs, to promote the HST but which has no basis in fact. PST was never charged on raw materials or completed products intended for resale.

In the example given the logger never paid PST on the log, the mill never paid PST to the logger and the desk manufacturer never paid PST on the milled product as in each instance the product was for resale. Yes, the logger may have paid PST on his truck, and the mill and desk manufacturer may have paid PST on their equipment but, being in business, they could write off that PST as part of the asset cost against their corporate income tax. The suggestion of an ever escalating PST to a level of 21 per cent is ridiculous, al-

though certainly the desk will cost way more than the cost of the wood. I urge Ms. Banka to issue, if not a retraction, a clarification as would be worthy of her profession and encourage her to research the B.C. Consumer Taxation bulletins for PST which remain available on the B.C. government website. There remains enough confusion around this issue without throwing another “log” on the fire. Neil Martin, Kelowna

To the editor: While I don’t want to wade into the HST issue, I must point out the error of the example Gabriele Banka used in here June 28 column on the HST. The example is the process (and taxes accrued) on the trip of a log in the woods to a finished desk. Rather than PST being charged on first the log, then again on the sawn wood and yet a third time on the manufactured desk; what would actually happen is the sawmill would buy the log PST-exempt from the logger as a raw material and in turn the desk manufacturer would buy the sawn wood PST-exempt from the sawmill as a raw material. Only when the desk was sold to the end user would PST be payable. Vern Klukas, Kelowna

To the editor: Re: NDP Leader Pleads His Case in Kelowna for Rejecting the HST, June 24 Capital News. All well and dandy to criticize the HST but the NDP’s call for a return to the old tax system is a step backward. The cost of going back is nonsense and we, the taxpayers, will have to pick up that cost. If any government needs more money to run the province there is only one

source—us—the taxpayers. And there is nothing stopping the government from raising the PST to make up for the short fall. While I certainly didn’t like the way the HST was brought in, I believe the people of B.C. have made there point by getting rid of the former premier. Enough said. Wayne Goreski, Kelowna

Education program for parents helps to keep babies safe


PATTY HALLAM, Interior Health Prevention Servi-

ces Program Consultant, shows off a floor decal used to inform the public about the Period of PURPLE Crying.

Bringing home a new baby is a joyous and exciting time for parents, but when that little bundle of joy won’t stop crying those same parents often find themselves sleep deprived, frustrated and wondering what is wrong with their child. “There is actually a normal time in a baby’s life when they cry much more than any other time,” said Patty Hallam, prevention services program consultant for early childhood development. “It begins around two weeks of age and continues to around three to four months. Some babies cry more than others but most babies go through it.” This common stage of infant development has a name—The Period of PURPLE Crying. The acronym PURPLE is used to describe

what parents can expect at this stage: Peak of crying—the crying peaks at around two months of age and then begins to decrease gradually. Unexpected—crying can come and go and you don’t know why. Resists soothing—a baby may not stop crying no matter what you try. Pain-like face—babies may look like they are in pain even when they are not. Long lasting—crying can last as much as five hours a day or more. Evening—crying is more common in the late afternoon or evening. This stage can be very challenging for parents who don’t understand why their baby won’t stop crying. Shaken baby syndrome is closely linked to the period of PURPLE

crying; it’s a serious and potentially life threatening condition resulting from the brain bouncing back and forth against the skull when a child is shaken. “There have been incidents where frustrated parents shake their child in an effort to get them to stop crying,” said Hallam. “It is important to know that this is a very dangerous practice and permanent damage to the baby can occur from as little as five seconds of shaking.” Maternity and public health nurses within Interior Health, through their involvement with the province-wide Period of PURPLE Crying Prevention Program, have made it their mission to make sure parents and caregivers know the period of PURPLE crying is normal and there are things they can do to cope.

When a baby is born Interior Health maternity nurses and/or midwives provide parents with a DVD that explains this phase. Public health nurses follow up once parents are home with their newborn to reinforce the message, make sure parents have viewed the DVD and answer any questions they may have. Their work, and the work of nurses provincewide, is making a difference in eliminating shaken baby syndrome. In 2010, interim evaluation results from the provincial Period of PURPLE Crying Prevention Program show a 31 per cent reduction in visits to B.C. Children’s Hospital Emergency Room for crying complaints involving infants up to six months of age. “Knowing PUPRLE

crying is a normal stage that will pass can make things a bit easier, said Hallam. “It also helps to know what you can do in the moment to cope with your emotions and keep your baby safe.” Hallam stresses it is important for parents to make sure they take a break. She offers the following suggestions: • If you have a partner, tag team with them and take turns looking after the child. • Call on a trusted friend or relative to come and care for baby while you take some time for yourself. • Place the baby in a safe place, such as their crib, and leave the room for a few moments.

Man survives fall from parkade’s top floor A man, who is believed to have fallen off the top floor of the library parkade in downtown Kelowna on Wednesday was listed in critical condition in Kelowna General Hospital. The incident, which

RCMP say occurred around 11 a.m., resulted in the man falling five storeys. Sgt. Anne Morrison said police were called to assist emergency crews in front of the parkade and officers found the man se-

riously injured when they arrived. The RCMP detachment is located next door to the parkade. The man was taken to KGH. Morrison said police are investigating and wit-

ness have been spoken to, including a person who was on the top floor of the parkade at the time. Morrison said police are treating the incident as non-criminal in nature. The injured man’s identity was not released.

Winery venue picturesque setting for ‘Merry Wives’ play For almost 20 years, audiences have been wooed each Summer by Shakespeare Kelowna’s productions of William Shakespeare’s best works whether in city parks or at local wineries. The Shakespeare Kelowna Theatre Society has been attracting some of the brightest talent in the Okanagan, winning awards and accolades and presenting fun and entertaining shows as well as introducing theatre goers to great venues and views and this year is no exception. “We have joined forces with the Okanagan Villa Estate Winery, home of the Vibrant Vine wine to present an amazing world class presentation of The Merry Wives of Windsor, Shakespeare’s fun and hilarious story of the ‘bawdy’ Falstaff and his attempt to woo the wives of the richest men in the town,” said the show’s producer, Joe Williams. The relationship between Okanagan Villa Estate Winery and Shakespeare Kelowna started last year after the critically acclaimed Hamlet was presented at the Mary Irwin Theatre. “The spectacular views, and warm atmosphere of Okanagan Villa Estate Winery is perfect for our Summertime Shows,” said play director Stephen Jefferys. “We are building a large stage, and have placed the show in the period, complete with ornate costumes, music and tremendous performances.” The cast is an amazing collection of some of the best actors in the city alongside the experienced and knowledgeable Shakespeare Kelowna production crew, with the stage production set at the picturesque Okanagan Villa Estate Winery. The production starts July 13 and runs every Wednesday through Saturday evenings until July 30. The show starts promptly at 7 p.m. so the audience should arrive early to get good seats. Okanagan Villa Estate Winery has an area for picnics and encourages audience members to take advantage of it so as to experience everything this event has to offer. Tickets are $25 and available through the Shakespeare Kelowna website: Okanagan Villa Estate

Winery is located at 3240 Pooley Rd, in East Kelowna and it’s easy to find.


Drive to top of KLO road, turn right at McCullouch Station Pub and contin-

ue up the hill overlooking the Harvest Golf Club and watch for a left turn onto

Pooley Road. Okanagan Villa Estate Winery is on the left side of the road.

Hard-luck Okanagan A’s close in on playoff berth Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Okanagan Athletics are on the way to their best finish ever in the B.C. Premier Baseball League. However, when it comes to what might have been, head coach Evan Bailey admits the 2011 campaign simply hasn’t unfolded the way he expected. Okanagan (19-20) is currently tied for sixth spot in the PBL with the Fraser Valley Chiefs, 3 1/2 games back of fifth-place Coquitlam and four back of fourth-place Parksville. True, the A’s are an excellent bet to make the playoffs for the first time, but it’s been a frustrating season for the team and its head coach nonetheless. Bailey has watched his club lose nine one-run games, many as the result of a banged-up pitching staff. With three quality starters on the shelf with injuries—Jake Maters, Nolan Handley and Clint Heidbrecht—the A’s have battled through much of the last month with just three pitchers. Other position players have filled in on the mound, including three catchers. Before the season began, Bailey envisioned

a top-five finish and as many as 30 wins for the A’s—but with just nine games left the club will be hard-pressed to get close to that. “I’m not going to lie, personally it’s been a disappointing year,” said Bailey, who led the club to its previous high of 15 wins last season. “I’m not disappointed in the kids at all, they’ve worked their butts off and have left it all out there. The outcomes just haven’t gone our way. I had six pitchers to start the year, now I have three. Most teams have nine or 10. “We’ve been in so many tight games, but it’s tough to win when you get to the third and fourth games of the weekend and don’t have anyone left to pitch.” The A’s are coming off a four-game split with the 11th-place Vancouver Cannons last weekend at Elks Stadium. The home team had 17 hits in the series finale, but Vancouver took advantage of a piecemeal Okanagan pitching staff for an 11-10 win on Sunday afternoon at Elks Stadium. Still, there were a number of highlights for the A’s during the Vancouver series. On Saturday, Jeff May (4-4) tossed

games left to play, so we can still make something good out of this,” said Bailey. “The good thing is that if we can somehow get healthy, I’m not worried about playing any team in the league. Anyone in this league can beat anyone else and that includes us. The guys have played hard and deserve a good finish. I’m hoping we can have a good end to the season.” This weekend, the A’s will be in Spokane for a 48-team tournament. They’ll return to PBL action July 7 in North Delta for a make-up game with the Blue Jays. The A’s will then head to Langley for four games against the Blaze July 9 and 10, before closing out the regular season July 16 and 17 at home to the Abbotsford Cardinals.

On Sunday, Dillon Kakoshke had a season-high five RBIs in an 11-4 A’s win. In the 11-10 loss, Nathan Ackerman drove in four runs. Also on the plus side,

the A’s are closing in on a playoff spot for the first time in the Kelownabased club’s eight seasons in the PBL. Bailey said the most likely of scenarios would see Okanagan finish in

either sixth or seventh, resulting in a first-round playoff matchup on the Island with either the Victoria Mariners, Nanaimo Pirates or Parksville Royals. “We’ve got some

Like their parent club, the Okanagan junior A’s are getting ever closer to a post-season berth. With eight games to play, the Athletics (20-20) are tied for sixth spot with the Victoria Mariners. Eight teams will make the playoffs. On July 9 and 10, Okanagan will travel to Vancouver for four games with the Cannons, then

James Walker will return home July 16 and 17 to close out the regular season with a pair of twin bills against the Victoria Mariners. The junior A’s took three of four games from the Fraser Valley Chiefs last weekend at Lombardy. In the opener, James Walker spun a three-hitter through six innings in a 2-1 A’s win. In Game 2 Saturday, Eric McGinn pitched three innings of one-hit relief for his sixth win in another 2-1 victory. On Sunday, Walker had three RBIs and Luke Cooke added two hits and two RBIs in a 6-4 win. Mike Tongue pitched three innings of one-hit relief for the victory. In Sunday’s finale, Will Russell had two RBIs as the A’s lost 16-4.

Falcons try to hang tough in WCL East Division The Kelowna Falcons spent their first day off in more than two weeks making an 11-hour bus trip to Bend, Ore. on Wednesday. The West Coast League club headed south for the start of a three-game series against the Bend Elks on Thursday night. The Falcons will then visit Klamath Falls for three games July 3 to 5, before returning to Kelowna for a six-game homestand. The Falcons (5-16) hope they’ve turned the corner on a rough start to the 2011 season after taking two of three games from Walla Walla this week at Elks Stadium.

Kelowna won 1-0 on Sunday and 8-7 in 14 innings on Monday, before losing 6-2 in 10 innings on Tuesday. Despite the club’s early struggles, head coach Al Cantwell sees a

light at the end of the tunnel. “It’s been a season of epic ups and downs,” said Cantwell, “but we’re seeing some good




things happening, the guys are beginning to shake some of the doubt. “A couple of hard-fought wins at home, those were team wins and character wins. We had a tough break and lost the last one, but the guys played hard. And if we keep playing that way we’re going to win some games.” Injuries have taken their toll on the Falcons who have lost outfielder Blake Curruthers (wrist), shortstop Keaton Briscoe (severe shin splints), and pitcher Tyler Huffer (hernia). The club has since added shortstop Keach Ballard from Texas who went 3-for-4 at the plate

on Tuesday. Through it all, the Falcons were only 2 1/2 games out of the second and final playoff berth in the East Division heading into Wednesday’s action. “It’s a long season, we’ve got lots of games to play and we’re only a shadow out of second place,” said Cantwell. “If we can win a couple of games down here and not lose any ground, then it’ll set us up well for the rest of July when we play a lot of games at home.” The Falcons next home action is Thursday, July 7 against the Corvallis Knights.

Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first pick The Kelowna Rockets hope the experience of one Latvian player here will help them acquire another Latvian forward. The Rockets selected Zemgus Girgensons of Riga, Latvia with one of two selections in the Canadian Hockey League import draft on Wednesday. Girgensons, 17, played last season in Dubuque of the United States Hockey League (Junior A) and, according to the Rockets, was expecting to go to college. But Rockets president/GM Bruce Hamilton says they will try to bring the 6-foot-1, 182 pound Girgensons to Kelowna.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no guarantees but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go after him and recruit him,â&#x20AC;? said Hamilton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping we can convince him to come see us and understand the last Latvian player that played here had a pretty good career here.â&#x20AC;? That was Lauris Darzins, also of Riga, who played two seasons in Kelowna before turning pro. Darzins spent the past three years in the KHL playing for Riga Dynamo. In 51 games last year Girgensons had 49 points plus eight in 11 Dubuque playoff games. Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second pick was after Capital News deadline.



Baseball Blast this weekend at Elks One of the top senior baseball tournaments in Western Canada is back on the diamond at Elks Stadium this weekend with the Eighth Annual Canada Day Baseball Blast. The host Kelowna Jays opened the 12 team tournament Wednesday night against Parkland out of Alberta and will also play Prince George tonight (7 p.m.) and Coquitlam Friday night (8 p.m.) in their three round robin games. Top college players, ex professionals and solid journeymen players

are sprinkled throughout the rosters of the 12 teams that are competing for over $10,000 in prize money over the five day event. Teams from around B.C., as well as from Alberta and the US are entered in what appears to be a very competitive group. The host Jays have an exciting young roster and should be competitive with the teams as they strive to win their own tournament for the first time. The Jays are led by right-handed pitcher Corey Wood, catcher


Cody Valgardson, shortstop Jared Johnson as well as local pitchers Kyle Monster and Dawson Newman. The Jays also have a slick outfield trio in Darren Kolk, KP Hlatky, and Sebastian Wong. Kelowna is coming off a stretch of six wins in their last eight games and are 20-12 on the current season so far. The defending champion Seattle Studs are back to defend their title from 2010 while threetime Blast winners the Burnaby Bulldogs are also in Kelowna and are the de-

fending Canadian senior baseball champions. Most games are at Elks Stadium but Thursday and Friday there will be four games at Boucherie fields in West Kelowna as the tournament ex-


pands to include more teams and more games than in the past. The playoff rounds take place Saturday and Sunday at Elks Stadium with the championship game on Sunday at 2:45 p.m.

Challenge remain in playoff chase

GranFondo in need of volunteers for July 16 race

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Kelly Wolverton chooses not to get caught up in the numbers, the various playoff scenarios, or which teams need to beat which teams over the last three weeks of the Pacific Coast Soccer League season. Plain and simple, the Okanagan Challenge need only be concerned with what they can control in their bid for the fourth and final playoff spot. “I’ve told the guys we need to go out and try win our last two games,” said Wolverton, the Chalklenge’s head coach. “There’s no need to concern ourselves with anything else. We’ll take rcare of what we can, then see if that’s good enough.” With two games left in the regular season—July 10 at home to Mid Isle and July 16 at the Apple Bowl against Kamloops—the Challenge (4-5-1) are two

Victoria has three games remaining against Vancouver, Surrey and Mid Isle. “It’s a tough league where pretty much anybody can beat anybody else,” Wolverton said. “It’s exciting to watch but nerve-wracking at the same time.” The Challenge will

have this weekend off before preparing for their last two matches, a welcome break for entire club. “We played three weekends in a row, six games in all, so it will be nice for the guys to have a break,” Wolverton said. “It’ll be especially helpful in preparing for our last two games.” The Challenge is coming off a split of two home games last weekend.

On Saturday, Justin Wallace scored twice, including the winner in the 88th minute as the Challenge defeated Vitoria 5-4. Nick Aguilar also scored a pair and Cole Berry added the other. On Sunday, Khalsa scored the only goal on a penalty kick in the 36th minute in a 1-0 Challenge loss.

The inaugural RBC GranFondo Kelowna is all set for Saturday, July 16. The race will take 1,200 cyclists over a spectacular 120 km course, and going along for the ride will be over about 300 enthusiastic volunteers. All along the course, volunteers from the communities around the Okanagan region will come together to support the riders. The RBC GranFondo Kelowna is a great event to support a friend, family member or neighbour who is in the ride. It provides an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the excitement and enthusiasm of a spectacular event. There is a role for every interest—media, cheering, aid stations, merchandising, celebrations and many more. As a thank you for all the hard work they put in, every volunteer receives refreshments for the day, a water bottle from RBC, a reference letter and a great lululemon souvenir piece. When the volunteers are done their shift they can celebrate right

by the beach with friends, family, and riders, soaking in a beautiful Okanagan day and enjoying food, wine, and camaraderie. The RBC GranFondo Kelowna will showcase the beauty of the Okanagan and like the event

in Whistler, people from all over B.C. will come to ride, volunteer and enjoy the area to make the event a huge success. For more information about volunteering visit:

Frei leads Elite girls to major tourney Former players of the Canadian Open many years ago, coaches Joni Frei and Dani Damel are getting their excited group of athletes prepared to play in the largest women’s only sporting event in B.C. this year. Both of their teams— the Okanagan Elite Gold Showcase Gold (U16) and Futures Gold (U18)—will be competing for the very first time from July 9 to 17 at Softball City in the same fastball tournament Frei and Damel once played in. Frei, who starred as a player and also coached at the NCAA level, last year moved from Georgia back to Kelowna, the place where she grew up. With a concept in mind to start a program for athletes to pursue their dreams and train them to be the best they can be, Joni called friend and former teammate Dani and asked if she wanted to be an assistant coach for these teams and she couldn’t resist. Damel moved up to Kelowna from Lang-

Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship in Surrey. “We’re very excited and proud to have our teams participate in such a prestigious event as the Canadian Open,” said Frei. “I know that both Dani and I agree that some of our greatest softball highlights and memories include competing and participating in this tournament. “Softball City is our old stomping grounds and to have our athletes enjoy and share in the same experiences that we have had at these same fields means so much to us. “In fact, it’s being able to share experiences like these with our girls that inspire us to commit our lives to coaching, teaching, and mentoring them.” Frei and Damel also started a brand new academy, Beyond the White Lines, to train athletes and coaches that want to pursue high level training in Kelowna. They will be flying in coaches from top teams in the States to participate in this academy. Joni and Dani are inspirational coaches and are proud of their four athletes from their team to fundraise at the Shave for the Brave event. Alexa Brickenden, Madison Wilms (both U-16), Brittany Smith, Kassie Keir (both U-18) each shaved their heads, and raised close to $3,000.

AJs gain experience at B.C. Swim Champs


KELOWNA AQUAJETS swimmer Alanna Larter competes in the breaststroke at the B.C. AA Swim Championships last weekend at H20.

Ogies keep bettering themselves More than 50 Ogopogo Swim Club swimmers racked up more than 100 best times at the Lumby Invitational Swim over the Father’s Day weekend. Not only was this the first major swim meet for the 2011 summer season, it was also the first ever swim meet for many of the clubs new swimmers. All of the Ogies youngest racers performed well at the Lumby meet: Maddox Crumb, Julian Mohamed, Flyn Huber, Myles Woodward, Cameron Hobbs and Gabriel Mohamed. t Some of the highlights of the meet for the Ogies included: Chloe Sollid-Gagner took 22 seconds off of her 100 IM; Kyra Sewell

Eight members of the host Kelowna AquaJets gained some invaluable competitive experience at the Sun Rype AA B.C. Swim Championships. Alanna Larter led the way at provincials for local swimmers last weekend at the H20 Centre with a gold medal in the girls 11-and-under 100 metre breaststroke in a time of 1 minute 34.82 seconds. Larter also reached the finals in the 200m breaststroke, 100m backstroke and 50m free. Teammate Jenna Butterworth,11, gave Larter some competition in the breaststroke events, grabbing a bronze medal in the 200 breaststroke, and a sixth place finish in the 100. Butterworth and Larter paired together with three other Aqua Jets Kaylin Scuka, Eden Lamb and Sydney Hayes for the relay events in both the medley and freestyle relays, finishing just off the

podium. On the boys side, both Ian Dunlop and Michael Patora had strong performances over the three days, qualifying for the final sessions in the evenings and making the podium on the final race Saturday evening in the boys 12-and-under 200 medley relay with teammates Zachary Stanley and Tudor Stanciu. Dunlop, 11, took off over eight seconds in his 200 breaststroke to place fourth, on his way to setting a new club record. Dunlop also took off 14 seconds in fine form on his 200 IM earlier in the meet. Patora, 12, placed seventh in his 200 breaststroke while breaking the four-minute mark for the first time. “The meet was a step forward for the team” said Jets’ head coach Peter Wilkins. All eight of the team swimmers were new

qualifiers to the competition and thrived on the experience and are eager to move up to the next level. Wilkins is very happy with the progress that the team has made this season and the excitement that is buzzing around the pool deck, it feels like things are already shaping up to start next year with a big splash. Most of the team finishes this week in the pool, while a dozen swimmers will carry on training for AAA provincials in Victoria in two weeks time, Age Group Nationals in Montreal at the end of July and the International Children’s Games in Lanarkshire, Scotland in August. Registration for the club is ongoing, and the club will start back up in September after a summer camp Aug. 22 to 26 at the H20 and Rutland pool. For more information please go to

Last call goes out for Business opportunities showcased Fusion Festival vendors W UBCO

The Downtown Kelowna Association has put out a final call for all vendors, artisans, crafters and food vendors to apply to participate in the Kelowna Fusion Festival taking place Aug. 13. The Kelowna Fusion Festival, formerly known as the Mardi Gras Street Festival, will be a celebration of local food, music and culture that will offer a variety of exhibits and entertainment for all ages. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown parks will be activated for the day with programming ranging from Kerry Park through Stuart Park. The site will open to upwards of 10,000 spectators made up of families, friends, residents and travelers alike who will gather together downtown to enjoy live entertainment, culture, activities and vendors from across the Okanagan Valley. Vendor applications have been streaming in as excitement builds around Kelowna Fusion Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural year. Spaces are filling up quickly and Peggy Athans, Downtown Kelowna As-

sociation executive director, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more thrilled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Downtown Kelowna Association is very proud to have so much interest from local vendors, artisans and performers for the first year of the Kelowna Fusion Festival,â&#x20AC;? Athans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to bring our community together to celebrate in August and we look forward to growing the festival each year.â&#x20AC;? The deadline for Kelowna Fusion Festival vendor and performer submissions is July 8.

Ultra long distance run aims to help others It may not compare with the harshness of running 275 kilometres across the Sahara Desert, but Kelowna long distance runner Connor Clerke tested the limits of his physical endurance last weekend. And he did that as a means of raising money and awareness of the need for new schools in the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. On Saturday Connor completed a nonstop 130 km run from the U.S. border at Osoyoos to City Park in Kelowna. Along with education in the Congo, Clerke was also running to help raise money for water projects in Africa initiated by the impossible2Possible organization. The run, inspired by Clerke’s Sahara trek in support of the same organization in 2010, was

to highlight the vast amount of clean, safe drinking water here in the Okanagan as opposed to many other parts of the world he is hoping to help. Clerke hoped that his 130 km run, starting at Osoyoos Lake and proceeding north along the Okanagan River, Skaha Lake and then along the southern half of Okanagan Lake would help achieve this objective. Clerke began at 4 a.m. at the U.S. border and attempted to cover off 10 km per hour, hoping to arrive at City Park around 5 p.m. Cool, cloudy conditions aided his run although pounding pavement for nearly 13 hours can take its toll on a body. The most he had ever run in one of his training runs was passed at the 45 km mark at 8:30 a.m. as he made his way along Skaha Lake.

The next 8 km would be uncharted territory for the 19-yearold runner. At Trout Creek, south of Summerland, Clerke was joined by Daniel Medland-Marchen who would run alongside for the next 20 km, spurring on his former Kelowna Minor Hockey and Kelowna Track and Field Club teammate. At the Okanagan Park campground, the two were joined by three current members of the Okanagan Athletics Club, who also helped encourage Clerke as he approached the final third of his quest. Clerke was also joined on and off by good friend Matt Blais, who tagged along to video the event. After a very short lunch break Clerke set off alone for the final 37 km of his journey.

Although extremely tired and beginning to get very sore, Clerke was able to pick up his pace for the final leg of the journey which included the 2.5 km Drought Hill climb into Westbank. By 4:30 p.m., 12.5 hours after his start at the U.S. border, Clerke rounded the curve and headed down to Bennett Bridge, where he was joined by his mother, brother and aunt to run together the final leg of his trip across the bridge and into City Park where he was greeted by numerous friends and family. For more information on the event or to make a pledge to Clerke’s epic run, see or call 250868-3616. Donations can be made out to Hope for the Nations and mailed to 1360 McKinley Rd., Kelowna B.C., V1V 2B7.

Options for applying medication


n the final column of our series on issues surrounding the sedation of children in the dentist’s chair, there are other various forms of sedation which can be extremely beneficial to anxious or uncooperative children in need of dental care. Medications can be taken by children via a number of different routes. Nitrous oxide and oxygen are inhaled. Other sedative medications we commonly use can also be taken by mouth and swallowed or they can be injected intravenously (IV) into a blood vessel. Health care providers who administer medications to children know that the most predictable effect from a medication occurs after it is injected into a blood vessel intravenously. However, children requiring sedation for dental treatment are usually not happy about receiving an intravenous injection to receive their sedative medicines. The alternative is to give the sedative medication orally. On the surface, this seems like an excellent solution. But, there are a number of drawbacks to this route of administration. First, some children are unable or unwilling to take oral medication. Second, once the medication is in the stomach it is absorbed and transported to the liver


Alan Milnes & Terry Farquhar where it is undergoes metabolic breakdown. In many cases, after this initial or first-pass metabolism, only a small amount of active medication remains to exert its sedative effect. As a result, the effects of orally administered sedatives are highly unpredictable. Third, each patient receives the exact same dose for their weight because the dosage for oral administration is determined by a patient’s weight. But we know that not all patients will react in exactly the same way to the same drug because of differences between individuals. Decades of research on sedative drugs and our own professional experience have shown that oral sedation has a high failure rate because of these various issues we have described. By far the safest, most predictable and most successful sedative route is intravenous. Using nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation as well as topical local anesthetic creams on the skin, we are able to address the discomfort a child may

feel when an IV is placed. Breakdown in the GI tract is avoided because the medication is injected into the blood stream for transport to the brain where the sedative exerts it effect. Unlike with oral sedation, it is possible to administer small amounts of the sedative agent over a period of time until the desired sedation level is achieved. Thus, the level of sedation can be very carefully controlled whereas with oral administration of sedation, this is not possible. Another advantage of IV sedation is that very short acting drugs can be given whereas these drugs cannot be given orally because of the longer time between oral administration, uptake from the GI tract, distribution to the brain and finally the onset of the sedative effect. One final advantage of intravenous sedation which is not available with any other route of drug administration is direct access to the circulation for administration of emergency medications in the unlikely event of an adverse event. Giving sedative medications to help a child cope with dental treatment sounds easy. It is, however, a skill which requires advanced training and education and not all dentists are qualified to use sedation. When a dental office recommends sedation for

a child, parents should feel comfortable asking the dentist how they are qualified to do so. Parents also should know that dental offices using sedation must follow practice guidelines for the sedation of children. Guidelines for sedation have been developed by medical and dental experts and are promoted by the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Canadian Dental Association and the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia. The guidelines discuss in detail the steps which a dental team must follow prior to an appointment, during an appointment and after an appointment when a patient has received sedation for dental treatment. Sedation guidelines have been developed for the safety of all patients who receive sedation for dental treatment. In our pediatric dental office, all forms of sedation—inhalation, oral and intravenous—are available. Our team has the education, training and experience to provide sedation safely for any child who will have difficulty receiving dental treatment. Alan Milnes and Terry Farquhar are certified specialists in pediatric dentistry at 101-180 Cooper Rd.

Red Eye Empire looking forward to Kelowna hordes Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

One doesn’t usually think of Canada Day as a “Last Chance for Sunshine,” but if you’re from Vancouver it’s likely an apropos concern/album name any time of year. And so it goes for Red Eye Empire, a West Coast rock/reggae group who will likely debut their latest collection of tracks in one of the sunniest spots in the entire country when they play Doc Willoughby’s Pub on July 1. “In this album, and the previous album, we’ve really discovered our own sound; it really shines through,” said Mike Redmond who fronts the five-

member group. Those who don’t know the band as yet might find Redmond’s description of their style a little confusing. Last Chance for Sunshine is said to include a song with bebop undertones, jazz, a bit of rock, a bit of reggae and everything in between. But if you picture yourself on a patio in Whistler with a group of scruffy looking guys accompanying some gnarly, extreme sports crew, it all makes sense. This band tours places like Invermere, Revelstoke, Kelowna and Whistler for a reason. Call it a California North surfer/snowboard soundtrack and what’s left is actually a pretty genre-specif-


RED EYE EMPIRE, from Vancouver, will perform at Doc Willoughby’s on July 1. ic, coastal sound for all seasons that actually does scream Canada for those

who associate our country with mountains, snow and the ski resort culture.

This is Red Eye Empire’s fourth album. While the group doesn’t actual-

ly debut the CD until July 8 in Vancouver, Kelowna will get the sneak peak as we’re a favourite stop. Kelowna fans helped test-run the material early last spring when the group stopped in at Doc’s and played a good dose of the new material before stepping into the studio. “Kelowna has really been good to us. It’s always a good party when we’re there,” said Redmond. “So we’re just hoping the hordes come out to see us again.” Red Eye Empire is one of the rare bands which claim two hometowns. Redmond is originally from Whistler and longtime friend and musical

collaborator Gabe Davis is from Vancouver. When Redmond moved down to Vancouver, and the pair started to build their empire, so to speak, they played enough gigs in Whistler that both places began to feel like a home base. And while Kelowna might be an odd place to take a first run at a CD called Last Chance for Sunshine, it would seem that the weather gods might actually be working with the band. Friday’s forecast calls for sun with a little cloud in a year characterized by unseasonably cool temperatures, big snow dumps, rain and clouds.


‘I am here’ tribute to immigrant experience T ravellers flying in and out of the Kelowna International Airport over the next several months are surely bound to notice the largescale work installed on the Kelowna Art Gallery’s art wall in the well-wishing area in the departures end of the airport. Titled Piecework, this new work of art is five feet tall and 30 feet long, and was created with fabric cut from used clothing in various shades and patterns of red. The artist is Renay Egami, who has lived and worked in the Okanagan since 2003 and is an assistant professor in creative studies at the University of British Colum-


Liz Wylie bia’s Okanagan campus. Egami devised the phrase “I am here,” which is formed by red fabric letters and repeated to create the overall form of the work, to encapsulate the immigrant experience. The piecework done at home and for low wages by immigrant women to North America is made reference to in the work’s title, and re-

inforced by the repeated letterforms, all of which have had their edges sewn up by the artist. Despite the undertones and allusions to the trauma and rupture of leaving one’s home country to settle in a foreign one, and the economic hardship often associated with such circumstances, the overall mode of Piecework is one of happiness. In a certain way this makes sense, as after all, it was the feeling of hope that inspired immigrants to settle this continent and to struggle to better themselves after they arrived. Egami has worked with various materials in the past, but this is her first work using fabric as

She selected the colour red initially because of its association with the red circle on the flag of Japan, but also for its general high impact. Even behind the glass of the art wall, the colour has a strong energy and presence in the well-wishing area. Egami researches widely before narrowing down the scope and look

of her pieces. She usually works in the area of contemporary art known as installation art, that is pieces or projects, often in a large scale, that are designed specifically for a certain place and time. She was given a solo show at the Kelowna Art Gallery in the summer of 2007, entitled Picnic, that made reference to people who take picnics to the

park in Japan that commemorates the Hiroshima bombing of 1945. In the gallery’s Rotary Courtyard space Egami had an array of glass vessels that she had melted in a kiln into misshapen forms, resting on a mirrored platform. In the Reynolds Gallery was a mushroom cloud made up of hundreds of lengths of thin, metallic chains.

Other movies coming up this weekend besides Transformers


his weekend is going to be all about The Transformers new movie, but I like rooting for the underdog, so I am going start with Larry Crowne. Although it is not only starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, and is also directed and produced by Hanks, it still is a quiet bit of counter-programming against those alien robots. Larry Crowne is the story of a Navy veteran who loses his job as a team leader at a big box store and goes back to community college to start over. There he becomes part of a colourful group of outcasts who are also trying to find a better future for themselves. He unexpectedly develops a crush on one of his teachers (Julia Roberts) and just when he thinks everything in his life is going nowhere, he discovers a new reason to live. Hanks is a quadruple-threat as he also cowrote the movie with Nia Vardalos, who he and is wife discovered while doing her stage show which became My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Rated General with a warning of coarse lan-


Rick Davis guage. In another bit of counter-programming, Monte Carlo stars Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, the story of three young women vacationing in Paris who find themselves whisked away to Monte Carlo after one of the girls is mistaken for a British heiress. They find themselves in a lavish world, where they live like royalty and experience romance, discovering the true magic of friendship along the way. It is clearly aimed at a young female audience teaming young singer-actress Gomez with Gossip Girl co-stars Meester and Cassidy. (Just in case you are wondering, Katie Cassidy is the daughter of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s pop idol David Cas-

TOM HANKS (left) stars with and directs Julia Roberts in the dramatic comedy Larry Crowne. sidy.) Rated General with no warning. And finally, Transformers: Revenge of the

Fallen. If I come off cynical, it is because I am not a big fan of director Michael Bay. Of his movies I

did not walk out of, I only tolerated them because they did have moments of brilliance. I actually


made it through and even enjoyed the first Transformers but I left part way through the second.

To his credit, Bay actually admitted that he was not happy with the second one as he had to do many of the rewrites himself because of the screenwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strike a few years back. He promises that the third delivers, and even though he was not originally a fan of 3D, his second promise is that the 3D will not disappoint. Shia LaBeouf is reunited with Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson and John Turturro and added to the cast is Patrick Dempsey, Frances McDorman, John Malkovich and Ken Jeong. The noticeable departure of Megan Fox just prior to the start of filming has been made even more noticeable with recent rumours that she was actually fired by producer Steven Spielberg. She was replaced with model and first time actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Rated PG with violence and coarse language. Rick Davis manages the Capitol Theatre.

Same old from Woody Vaccines show influences in debut MIDNIGHT IN PARIS

To be honest, I have never been a big fan of Woody Allen—in my opinion, the last interesting thing he did was Hannah and Her Sisters. However, I thought it would be a good idea to get out of my very comfortable comfort zone and so I went to see Midnight In Paris, written and directed by Woody Allen. Not many shared my adventurous spirit, as there were only 14 of us in the theatre on the Sunday night. While I can’t think who, or why Owen Wilson was cast as the lead, and while it wasn’t pretty to watch Canadian Rachael McAdams play the stereotypical “American in Paris,” this movie was surprisingly watchable. Also surprising was the rest of the cast which included Carla Bruni, wife of French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, in a small role as a tour guide, and Kathy Bates playing Gertrude Stein. It was also great to see

Susan Steen Mimi Kennedy, who I haven’t seen since the old Sid Caesar shows (am I dating myself here?), and she doesn’t at all look as though she’s 63 years old. It’s hard to explain the rest of the cast and their roles without giving much of the movie away. Suffice to say, it’s somewhat like the old game of what five people would you invite to dinner? I said somewhat, but it’s a stretch—a little like Owen Wilson’s acting. I know, I will stop harping about that, but truly it wasn’t good! In typical Allen style, Midnight In Paris was somewhat like watching a play on a very large stage instead of a movie on the big screen. Unlike a lot of Allen’s work,


it wasn’t just scene after scene of nothing to do with the core of the show, it did have a message that romance has been here throughout the ages, and sometimes, just sometimes, it can transcend time itself. Maybe because I had spent Saturday at a wedding that I was feeling nostalgic myself, but despite the mismatch of casting and the stilted acting of McAdams (yes, I will stop harping on this, too), and even though this movie does not provide any ‘tears rolling down your cheeks’ laughs, it does have a “je ne sais quoi” about it that’s worth seeing. Another plus—it’s only an hour and 45 minutes, so it’s not a big investment of time either. This is quirky, endearing and packed with historical glimpses. If you like fantasies about times past, you’ll love it. Best quote of the movie: “Nostalgia is denial.” I give this movie 2 reels—but it’s worth seeing Susan Steen is a local non-profit executive and movie buff.


The album title is an apt one considering the myriad of influences or imagined influences from London’s foursome, The Vaccines, and their debut album. Think in terms of The Ramones meets The Strokes meets The Jesus And Mary Chain—the latter for the occasional forays into looped feedback guitar and heavily echoey vocals. The lead off song is very Ramones-like with its soccerish chant Wrecking Bar (Ra Ra Ra) and speedy, youthful rhythmics that clocks in at a minute and a half, while If You Wanna has I Wanna Be Sedated DNA all over it. While The Ramones were labeled the quintessential punk band, The Vaccines sound more power pop with fresh and energetic songs that swing slightly into surf territory on Post Break Up Sex (the first single and U.K. hit) and some Phil Spector-like wall of sound on Wetsuit. The most head swiveling song here is the closer Family Friend where the very young Vaccines fret over the aging process


Bruce Mitchell while channeling (to my ears) Buddy Holly, P.F. Sloan and a lot of Jesus And Mary Chain. Intriguing stuff and a band to watch especially for a follow-up album now that the appetite has been whetted. B


I heard a loud groan from my son in the next room when the first chords of Hot Chelle Rae’s hit single Tonight Tonight reached his ears. The song has been picked up by the local airwaves off this four-song, three-video enhanced extended play CD designed to introduce this Nashville band to Canada. The group released their debut in the USA a few months back and enjoyed a minor hit with the weepy and sappy ballad Bleed (also included here). But all members of

this would-be boy band come from interesting musical bloodlines. Three of the lads have parents who are prolific songwriters on music row while bassist Ian Keaggy’s father Phil was a hot shot guitarist for the highly regarded ’70s band Glass Harp, along with dozens of solo albums. But Hot Chelle Rae, besides having a cool name, will have to show me a lot more than this meager four-song, threevideo offering. Their two dance rock tunes are way better than their boy band efforts but this group needs to clarify their identity. C

Cults are a new duo Madeline Fillon and Brian Oblivion, who got their start like so many others nowadays, on the Internet when three of their songs became hot items. The duo soon signed to Sony and they have released their debut album under the truncated name Cults, with production from Shane Stoneback of Britney Spears, NSYNC, Vampire Weekend fame. The lead off single Go Outside is more or less experimental dream pop (think The Sundays) with lots of tinkly bells and echoey vocals placed artfully in the back of the mix. The new album hasn’t been completely ignored on these shores where Cults has made its debut at the No. 89 spot, but this is also another band to watch.

Besides the dream pop there is a healthy dose of ’60s girl group music here with the hooky and synthdriven Walk At Night along with the skipping, perky beats to Bumper the most pop-like song on the eponymous CD. I suppose to offset the dream pop the duo has added background dialogue from famed mass murderer Jimmy Jones of Jonestown to show an edgier side, but it probably wasn’t all that necessary. C+


At first glance this might appear to be a novelty classical album but the two cellists here are multiple award winners and highly educated with their craft and this new album of covers of classic rock songs is quite beguiling. It is a blast to hear these two young cellists working with one another on tunes like U2’s Where The Streets Have No Name and With Or Without You where one guy saws away like crazy to create the rhythmics while the other offers up the delicate melodic lines. And, believe it or not, the lads also tackle Dick Dale’s revved up surf instrumental Miserlou with great aplomb along with an energetic reinterpretation of Guns’N’Roses Welcome To The Jungle. Sulic and Hauser also tackle more mellow tunes from Sting and Coldplay along with scintillating takes of NIN/Johnny Cash’s hit Hurt and Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit that really highlight the beautiful, melodic lines. Much more fun and enjoyable than expected. B

So much to do on Canada Day Pyper Geddes CONTRIBUTOR


anada Day will be upon us tomorrow and is, as we all know, a welcome day off but also a great day to get out and celebrate this absolutely awesome country of ours. So you have all your flags, your face paint, your patriotism and all of your other Canadian paraphernalia but now—what do you do? You might find yourself tomorrow morning, or today even, wondering what you’re going to do with yourself on the birthday of our true north strong and free. Kelowna has no shortage of opportunities to busy yourself on the start of your three-day weekend. To start things off, Kelowna style, I would suggest leaving the car at home. We’ve all sworn under our breath about never being able to find a parking spot in downtown Kelowna during busy summer weekends and tomorrow will be no exception. Plan to bike, skate, board, walk, or public transit your way down to Kelowna’s Canada Day hot spot. Once downtown, Celebrate Canada Day Kelowna kicks off at 10 a.m. The celebration is an annual, free community festival held in Prospera Place and Waterfront Park. It is produced as a community partnership between Festivals Kelowna, Folkfest and the Kelowna Canada Day Concerts Society, bringing the community a huge number of activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy. Ther are more than 50 absolutely free activities and performances that are multi-generational and family-friendly for every attendee to enjoy. To kick everything off, at 12:30 p.m. there will be the Canada Day Opening Ceremonies which will feature a huge cake cutting (think enough cake for 700 people) to celebrate our country’s 144th birthday. Following the opening ceremonies is a barrage of activities including ball hockey, vendors, artisans and crafters in the Made in Canada Marketplace, the Taste of Can-

Make us your home page:

ada featuring food vendors from across the Valley, a Kids Zone and live music performances featuring the likes of Mobadass, Windborn and Young Sparrows. There is lots to explore along the expansive event site but don’t forget about how nice it would be to head back down towards Bernard Avenue and how good a chilled beverage on a (fingers crossed) sunny patio will taste. With so many to choose from it might be hard to pick out just one roof-top or street-side hangout. So now we’ve managed to fill up most of our day, but what about the evening? You’re downtown al-

ready, so instead of dragging yourself back home to slave over a hot stove (or barbeque), maybe stay right where you are and enjoying some delicious dining out. Downtown Kelowna has a great selection of restaurants (111 in total, so I’m told) and there are some great stillslightly-newbies to check out like Fernando’s Taqueria or the Twisted Tomato. Now, of course, come the fireworks. This blessed display of all things patriotic, bright, glorious (and yet generally underwhelming) over Okanagan Lake will kick off at 10:30 p.m. Although this is an exciting and breathtaking moment for most,

for some this is also the highest point of tension from a day’s worth of mass crowds, sunshine and consumption of numerous beverages, and so if I may whisper a number of haunting words like: “Regatta, Wakefest, or Vancouver Stanley Cup Finals.” Let’s keep things cool, safe and positive. We all love to celebrate and we want to make sure that our city is still allowed to celebrate. After the evening’s festivities my final advice is to head down to Doc Willoughby’s, enjoy the good company and listen to Red Eye Empire to rock, reggae, pop and ska the night away. Happy Canada Day!

Instruct Roots of Empathy Do you have a heart for children? Are you interested in facilitating learning? Can you commit for two years? There is good news for kids and families. The Roots of Empathy program, offered in several SD23 schools, has a nocost-to-you training opportunity coming this fall. Volunteer trainers are being recruited now. Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based program that has shown dramatic effects in reducing levels of aggression among school children while increasing pro-social behaviour. The program reaches elementary children from kindergarten to Grade 8. At the heart of the program is a neighbourhood infant and parent who visit the class every three weeks, for Family Visit time. The instructor visits the week before and the week after each family visit to prepare and reinforce teachings using a

specialized lesson plan for each visit. Becoming a Roots of Empathy instructor requires a commitment to deliver 27 classroom lessons of 30 to 40 minutes and to participate in four days of training. Throughout the first year, instructors are supported by a mentor through phone calls, email messages and a classroom visit. As a Roots of Empathy instructor, you require patience, empathy, flexibility and energy. You must be able to teach a group of children in their usual classroom setting with the added dynamic of a parent and infant. Becoming a certified Roots of Empathy instructor, involves submitting an application form, being accepted for training, completing training, receiving 75 per cent or

higher on a written, open book certification test, and clearing a Police Record and Position of Trust Disclosure check. Still interested? Watch the video and download the first chapter at www.

Aquatic play park developer has local roots

Nancee Way gridlock solved

Marshall Jones CONTRIBUTOR

That West Kelowna is finally ready to start construction of its new children’s water park in Westbank Centre Park was cause for celebration after a four-year fundraising effort. But under the surface, the park itself is yet another success story in the company that conceived, designed and will install the park. It’s a rather unique installation, says a spokesperson for Waterplay Solutions Corp., in that the company has been involved in every stage of its progress. That’s only unique because typical installations are done in far off places dealing with distributors, not often the people on the ground. Waterplay Solutions has more than 3,000 play parks around the world, mostly in North America but also in United Arab Emirates, Guam, Singapore, Europe and plenty in Australia. It’s a global company that has grown tremendously since 2007. And it’s right here in Kelowna. “Everything you will see on this aquatic play environment in West Kelowna is welded, machined, painted, polished and designed right here in the Okanagan,” said Ryan McDowell, territory development manager. The company has quietly been building a reputation around the world for its innovation and uniqueness. Never heard of it? It’s been around almost 25 years, most of that time headquartered in Penticton. But in 2004, it was bought by entrepreneur

Jill White and moved to Kelowna, where it has a sales and marketing office as well as a manufacturing plant in the industrial park near Sun-Rype. According to a profile at Kelowna Women in Business, during her time at the helm the company has expanded from nine to 45 people at its peak and grew revenues 600 per cent. The company has tapped a distribution network to move its products but all the design, construction and installation is done here in what staffers describe as a very open environment that fosters creativity and teamwork. Lisa Neilson is the director of sales and marketing but the company makes a point of having everyone capable of minor maintenance. At the same time everyone in the business is encouraged to give input in how to make things better. “It’s so we have a better feel for how it all works, what works, what isn’t working,” Neilson says. If you have been to spray parks in City Park, Ben Lee Park, in Lake Country, in Penticton or Summerland—you have played with Waterplay. But the coolest part is how they have taken on a challenge such as beating summer heat in a safe and efficient way. As water sprays up— or dumps on—the waterplayers, it is collected again. Underneath all the waterparks are huge tanks of water, like an underground lake. The water is disinfected with chlorine and UV filtration before being sent back up again. The loss of water to evaporation or wind is mini-

mal—about five to seven per cent per day, similar to an outdoor pool—with a fraction of the water. As if working at a creative, inspiring and successful company wasn’t enough, there are also the fun parts. Waterplayis hosting what it calls Sprayapalooza this week where they get to share with vendors and business partners what they are working on and testing. Yep, that means playing and spraying and sliding and dunking. Asked why in all the world a manufacturing company would locate in the Okanagan where few others are, McDowell

MAYOR Doug Findlater (above) kicked off the start of construction of a new children’s spray park at Westside Centre Park on May Road with the help of Tyler Funk, 5, and his brother Tristan, 3.

said: “Why not? “The original owners moved from the Lower Mainland to Penticton for

the lifestyle. “We are a manufacturer, we create things, we can export them any-

where we want and we can locate anywhere we want to. So why not locate here?”

Traffic congestion on Highway 97, that brought traffic to a crawl through construction at Nancee Way earlier this month, was a short-term anomaly that will not likely be repeated this summer, says a ministry of transportation and highways manager for this area. Murray Tekano appeared before West Kelowna council Tuesday night to answer questions about traffic disruptions and to forecast what awaits us all during summer tourist traffic. Mayor Doug Findlater said he has taken many calls from people angry about the delays. But in the month it took to arrange the meeting, it appears all is back to normal. Tekano said the frustrations many drivers shared—and which led to councillors’ concerns— largely were in response to a temporary lane reduction in early June. Tekano said the only construction related delays he expects through the rest of summer is only due to the reduction in speed limit to 60 km/h from 80 km/h through the stretch of construction. Other delays may occur with normal traffic volumes but independent of road construction. Council seemed generally satisfied with Tekano’s answers in response to their concerns.

pute, and their concerns also must be heard. Before the disruption began, many suggested that the importance of Canada Post was less significant in the age of technology with so many paperless options. In fact one of my initial concerns was that the labour dispute would lead to more citizens turning to paperless alternatives and that would harm the long term viability of Canada Post. If there is one positive to this dispute, I can now say with certainty that Canada Post is very much a Canadian institution that many Canadians absolutely depend upon. Literally hundreds

of citizens shared with me how the disruption in postal service was affecting their lives. It was indeed an eye opening experience: A daycare provider who did not receive payment and as a result could not put food on the table; seniors waiting in stress over medical test results; families with sick children unable to file insurance claims; employees facing layoffs and small business owners considering closing. As the debate proceeded, I heard from more and more citizens. It became obvious that there was a critical need to see this legislation through and ultimately the 58 hour debate marathon was the price

we would pay in Parliament to ensure the bill was passed. I do recognize that there are those who will be unhappy with the back-to-work legislation, and disappointed that I voted in favour of it. While I doubt there will ever be unanimous agreement in a democratically diverse country like Canada, in this case the real life challenges that this labour dispute was creating could not be ignored. Of the many citizens I heard from, 83 per cent were in favour and 17 per cent were opposed. In my opinion, this vote was not based on its popularity or public support, but was based on public need.

I am hopeful that we will all better recognize the importance of Canada Post in future discussions as this was the seventh time in Canada’s history that postal workers have been ordered by Ottawa to return to work. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who shared their comments and words of support during the 58-hour marathon. As your MP, it was very moving to know that many citizens all across Okanagan-Coquihalla were following the work I was doing in Ottawa on your behalf. Dan Albas is the Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla.

rotect your home from wildfires. West Kelowna Fire Rescue is encouraging everyone living in the wildland/urban interface to take time now to plan how to increase the fire safety of their homes and property.

Fire Smart Tips: •Prune tree branches to a height of 2 metres or more •Store fire wood 10 metres or more from the house (avoid downslope location) •Remove all trees, long grass, shrubs, logs, branches, twigs and needles within 10 metres of house •Thin trees (with 3 - 6 metres between crowns) for at least 30 metres from the house •Remove or reduce the number of evergreen trees in the area. Evergreens such as pine and spruce are much more combustible than deciduous trees •Remove deadfall, thick shrubbery and mature trees that can spread fire upwards to become a fast spreading crown fire for at least 30 metres from the house. Once a fire crowns out, it’s virtually unstoppable •Grass within 10 metres of buildings should be mowed and watered •Clear all debris from gutters and roof •Contact your utility company if trees or branches are not clear of power lines Pine needles are a fire hazard •Address or lot number clearly signed for quick identification by fire service •Driveway is wide enough to accommodate emergency vehicles •Chimney installed to code complete with spark arrestor screens •All eaves enclosed and screen all vents including soffits •Undersides of balconies, decks and crawlspaces sheathed in with flame resistant materials •Propane tanks located at least 10m from building - clear all vegetation within 3 metres •Use only fire retardant roofing rated Class A, B or C and fire resistant exterior siding

The wildland/urban interface is the area where the forest meets urban communities. Living in a forested area means living with fire! The best protection against loss, damage or injury due to wildfire is prevention. Following the FireSmart Home Owners Manual can help reduce that risk.

Make a plan

It’s easy and essential. Every Canadian household needs an emergency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do if disaster strikes. Make your own plan and print it out today.

Prepare a kit

It doesn’t take long - find out what goes into an emergency kit, or where you can buy one. An emergency kit helps ensure you and your family are ready to cope on your own for at least the first 72 hours of an emergency.

If you see a FIRE in your community call the emergency number: If you see a WILDFIRE call Toll Free 1-800-663-5555 (*5555 on most cellular networks). If you require information on fire use restrictions and forest closures, call toll free 1-888-3-FOREST (336-7378).

What the Danger Class Ratings mean:

LOW:: Low fire danger MODERATE:: Carry out any forest activities with caution HIGH:: Fire hazard is serious. Extreme caution must be used in any forest activities. Burning permits and industrial activities may be restricted EXTREME: Extremely high fire hazard.

Capital News Thursday, June 30, 2011 B13


There are no shortcuts in personal injury treatments I found myself chatting with a pharmaceutical sales representative the other day. My wife and I hosted a BBQ in our backyard and the sales representative was one of our guests. I learned her occupation over a couple of beers as we huddled around the barbecue for warmth on this uncharacteristically chilly evening. I had some fun asking about the drugs old guys like me might have an interest in. My e-mail junk folder is filled with unsolicited advertisements for medications that enhance male libido. I learned that Cialis can have fun benefits for those who are not yet experiencing erectile dysfunction! Our discussion became more serious when I asked about medications to assist those of my clients with chronic pain and depression. The two are quite clearly linked, and effective treatment requires attacking both the pain as well as the depression. Chronic pain can, quite obviously, lead people to experience low mood. Just think about how

Kelowna business supporter Now you can use the Internet to add your own non-profit event to the Capital News Stuff to Do.


Paul Hergott a toothache or headache can ruin your day. Imagine suffering that pain day in, day out; week after week; month after month; year after year. In true “chicken and egg” fashion, depression can also be a factor in the development of a chronic pain condition, and in how much of an impact that chronic pain will have on function. The sales rep told me about medication that is specifically designed to treat both low mood as well as chronic pain. That’s not typical. Typically, there are medications that treat depression and other medications that treat pain. When I asked about the availability of such medication, the sales rep told me that they are very expensive. I envision pharmaceutical sales reps making sales pitches to doctors, trying to convince them to prescribe expensive new

medications. Doctors would quite reasonably be cautious about introducing expensive new medications. From my perspective as a personal injury lawyer struggling to facilitate as full a recovery for my clients as I can possibly facilitate, I want my clients to have access to whatever medications might be available, regardless of expense. Expense is not a concern for me because the offending driver who caused the problem paid liability insurance premiums to ensure that the insurance company will step up to the plate to pay whatever is necessary for the innocent victim’s medication and other needs. That’s what liability insurance is all about. Some medical plans will cover certain, less expensive medications, and not others. The Pharmacare program is probably even more restrictive. There are no such restrictions when considering fair compensation for an injury victim’s injuries. If your doctor prescribes an expensive medication as the best option to treat your injuries,

Your medical care should be determined by your doctor and the therapists to whom you are referred. I don’t know how you can get access to expensive new medications that your doctor may be reluctant to prescribe because of expense. I encourage you to be clear with your doctor that achieving as full a recovery, with as limited an ongoing impact on your life as possible, is your goal, and that you will pay whatever it takes to get

there. You can feel confident about the reality that the insurance company will end up reimbursing you every cent you spend pursuing that goal. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice specifically pertaining to your case.

have. They have policies with no medical basis that, for example, limit massage therapy funding to the first couple of months after the crash. I also regularly hear that they refuse to fund both of physiotherapy and chiropractic care, pushing you to choose one or the other. That makes zero medical sense. What the insurance company might choose to pay for up front should not have any impact on your medical care.

the insurance company will definitely have to reimburse you. Incidentally, this applies to libido enhancers as well. Pain and headaches do a number on a couple’s sexual relationship. The loss of sexual intimacy can be destructive to the relationship dynamic. It can be very reasonable to bring medication into play to cause an increased libido that breaks through the pain barriers and restores that intimacy. That’s a whole other topic that I’ll deal with in a future column. I am not saying that we should be reckless with spending money on crash victims. I am saying that we should be fair. If you are sitting at a red light and someone smashes into the back of your car causing you injury, fairness says that the negligent driver’s liability insurance should pay any reasonably incurred expense to help with your recovery and to minimize the impact those injuries have on your life. This applies to therapies as well. Ignore the ridiculous up-front payment policies that the insurance company might

(nee Spencer) Oct 6, 1930 - June 17,2011


Loving wife of the late Terence Biggs and adored mother of Bonita Gilbert of Kelowna; Nick Biggs of Marathon, Ontario; Tim Biggs of Auckland, New Zealand; & Chris Biggs of Sarnia, Ontario. Ione passed away peacefully in Marathon, Ontario on Friday, June 17 while visiting family. Cherished sister of Ernest Spencer of Manchester, UK, and Sylda Johnston, predeceased. Ione will be forever missed by her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and her incredible network of friends around the world. Ione was born in the Falkland Islands and in 1957, came to Sarnia with Terry and her young family where she began to create a loving home and embark on a nursing career of more than 30 years. She will always be remembered for her unwavering devotion to her family, her dedication to health, happiness, and well-being of her friends, her laugh, her chocolate chip cookies and sausage rolls, but not, perhaps, for her skills at darts. Ione relocated to Kelowna in 2003 to be near her daughter and her grandson, Dan Ross. A funeral service was held on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at Smith Funeral Home in Sarnia, Ontario. Cremation followed. Anyone wishing to express their respects for Ione can do so with a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Vincent served in WWII. He was a self-employed carpenter and home builder. He was also an orchardist, having his own orchard since 1956. Vincent enjoyed playing the clarinet in the Kelowna City Band, of which he was a member for 51 years. He will be missed by all whose hearts he touched. Our family would like to thank the in-home caregivers and all the staff at Brookhaven Care Center for all their wonderful care for Dad.
