riginally it wasn’t what one would call an exciting project. George Barnes, an architect who came up from the coast and was living in the area, had been doing small projects for Kelowna’s museum when he took on the Centennial project—building a new museum home on Queensway Avenue to celebrate the nation’s birthday. “We were paid for it, but it was basically volunteer,” said Barnes, who would stick with the museum and help the spitfire director hired to take the reins in that building, Ursula Surtees. The budget to build the new museum was in the $80,000 range and more than 50 per cent went into the ground—literally.

Museums cataloguing generations of local history Barnes sunk $45,000 into a foundation fit to hold the additional storey they would later add, and another two should the city one day decided to expand. It would have few to no windows, to protect the artifacts, and require a flowing open interior where exhibits could be shown. And as one can see when passing the Queensway bus loop en route to the classic ’60s entrance, its base material resembled the colour of a long Kelowna winter in the land of cloud inversions—lots of grey cement. And yet, when it comes right down to it, as lacklustre as the task sounds, building the museum probably had more life to it than any other project the architect ever did, including Kelowna’s airport buildings. Within the walls of what’s now the Kelowna Museums—rebranded to include five separate collections in four buildings—lie generations of life stories and treasures and the best of the best things community members want to share with their friends and relatives, neighbours and visitors for generations to come as we collectively tell the story of where we live. Over the summer, the valley-wide collection turned 75 years old, a date marking the anniversary of the Kelowna Museum Society, officially established in 1951.

Started by the Boy Scouts and solidified by the Okanagan Historical Society, the museum collection was stored in garages and historical society member’s homes until the museum society was established. “A big part of Boy Scouts is about collecting and organizing, so it sort of made sense that they would get involved. And Boy Scouts, what are they interested in? They’re interested in First Nations and they’re interested in animals. “So it grew up around a collection of First Nations artifacts and natural history artifacts,” explained Wayne Wilson, the current executive director of the museums. The first building was in City Park, where it was routinely vandalized, according to Ursula Surtees, who is wildly described as the museum’s champion and the driving force who made it what it is today. From City Park, it then moved into the Willow Inn, sharing space with other clubs like the area’s fish and game club. From there, “the bomb shelter,” as Surtees said it was called, went up and Surtees joined the museum. In those early years, one would walk down two steps to get into the building, which resembled a bit of a giant basement with an ever-growing collection of Okanagan residents’ treasures dating back to the 1930s. “We have some of the original artifacts from

a thriving cultural centre for the town was no easy task, and not one Surtees necessarily wanted to take on when she was approached to take over in the Centennial building. “I agreed to give it a

museum attached to her school and was accustomed to museums being used as teaching tools. And so, it’s not surprising that under her direction Kelowna’s museums would become the first to establish curriculum-based programming, sending out items from the collections to classrooms with an interpreter and developing a First Nations curriculum with the school district.

school, art exhibits were held on the top floor of the library,” said Wilson, noting what would become the Kelowna Art Gallery Society which moved into the Centennial building before eventually establishing its own building. Perhaps one of the great highlights, though, was adding the regional conservation lab—an event which won Surtees an Award of Merit from the Canadian Museum Association. (See story on page A33.) “I’ll tell you, I actually wasn’t that thrilled to receive the award because I felt the CMA should have been lobbying for conservation labs across the country on behalf of museums,” said Surtees. The final lab space opened in 2001, a year after she retired. Surtees had “lobbied and lobbied and lobbied” to get even a hint of funding for the space in the years prior to the achievement. The first conservation expert, Richard Fuller, was hired on a small line of government funding that afforded just a closet of space for what was the only lab in the Interior. It wasn’t good enough for the feisty director. “People give you

Nations knowledge base, she set about trying to teach another side of the region’s history, originally going to schools when the museum was closed in the mornings, then later hiring someone to watch the collection while she was teaching. Under her tenure, the museum won federal funding to become one of 33 regional historic collections across the country and subsequently added a second storey to the museum building in 1976. And in the early 1980s, she and her staff— her first staff members were educators, incidentally, and the person who watched the museum so she could go out to classrooms—launched the original Laurel Packinghouse restoration. Saving that building would become a career highlight for both Surtees and Wilson, who also completed a Laurel restoration in 2010, providing a safe space for the wine museum, orchard museum and wine shop for many years to come. Over the years, the museum also housed the art gallery for a time. “I remember in high

Whether fortunately or unfortunately, Surtees told the CMA exactly what she thought of their inability to go to bat for the country’s museums right in her award acceptance speech, leading to an awkward round of applause and perhaps lending a little credence to her reputation as an outspoken stickler. Ask her whether she would do it again, though, and she just laughs and says, “Oh yes. You can’t have an organization that’s supposed to represent something, but doesn’t do anything.” And that determination is really what’s made Kelowna’s museum the success story it is today— the largest museum in the province short of those in Vancouver and Victoria. For his part, Wilson hopes he has left his mark on the business end of the museum, ensuring the City of Kelowna and those who use the archives and historical resources recognize the service the museum provides. He established annual business reporting and started looking for new revenue streams—offering prints of the museum’s historical photos to the public, for example, and charging for document research or tours done by staff. “We’ve got orchard industry artifacts that go back over 100 years and bottles of wine, unopened, from the 1930s with the original governSee MuseumsA6

Video footage of Jennifer Cusworth’s body being pulled from the ditch where she was found Oct. 17, 1993, offered jurors a grim view of the teenager’s final moments, in day two of the first degree murder trial for Neil Snelson. Stiff from rigor mortis, the 19-year-old was filmed face down in a ditch, in a few inches of water. Her long hair was slung over her bruised face. A black pair of pants, two black camisoles, an animal print blouse as well as brown fringed boots—all appeared intact, RCMP investigator Gregory Shaigec, told the

On Oct. 20, 1993, he had first contact with the Cusworth case, he told the court Thursday. Vaginal and rectal swabs taken in those early days after the body was found, yielded the evidence he was looking for. In both cavities, semen was present. On the crotch of her pants, more sperm was also present. An inspection of Cusworth’s mouth, however, did not yield DNA evidence. All the samples collected over the course of that examination were then sent away to Edmonton, as DNA cataloguing was still a new science to Vancouver. Following the initial exam, Kalyn did not lose

camera person who was cataloguing the scene. Nearby, the now-retired officer testified Thursday, investigators found a two-by-four with a hair stuck to it, a belt and a beer can. Cusworth’s body, he said, was then transferred to the Kelowna General Hospital morgue, where it awaited further examination. Howard Kalyn, an expert in biological evidence who was called in to testify by Crown counsel Iain Currie, then had his expertise put to use. Kalyn worked at the RCMP forensics lab in Vancouver from May 1977 to Dec. 30, 2005, and specialized in collecting samples of blood or semen.

PS or Phosphatidylserine is a building block for nerve cell membranes, and works to revitalize all nerve cell functions. Although PS is found in all body cells, it is most highly concentrated in brain cells. PS works to decrease the secretion of our stress hormone cortisol, which results in elevated mood and feelings of relaxation, mental clarity and overall improved health. PS is not only helpful for those showing signs of memory fatigue, it is also beneficial for all individuals who want to protect their brain and increase natural brain function. I have received numerous amounts of positive feedback from customers of varying backgrounds. One, who is a teacher, always suggests PS IQ to her students to increase productivity, and has found it particularly helpful for those students who may be suffering with ADHA. An elderly customer noticed that after starting PS there was an improvement in cognitive ability and alertness. For many, PS has given them back the spark of quick thinking and a sense of reassurance knowing that memory protection is possible. Suzi O. Nature’s Fare Markets

Those samples, testified Shaigec, were collected at a local medical lab by individuals who consented to a police request. A match to the DNA found on Cusworth’s body, wasn’t found until 16 years later. Snelson was arrested in October of 2009.

NBC Dateline covering Snelson trial Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna’s most notorious cold case caught the eye of an international media outlet. Reporter Robin Davis from Dateline NBC, which is based out of New York, will be at the Kelowna courthouse for the next four weeks covering the first degree murder trial of Neil George Snelson. The one-hour cold case episode will air some time in the new year, although there’s no fixed date yet. Snelson, 45, was arrested and charged with the crime in October of 2009, nearly 16 years to the day when Jennifer Cusworth’s body was found in a ditch on Swamp Road. Cusworth had been at a party on Richter Street Oct. 16, 1993, and the court heard Wednesday that Snelson was also in attendance at that party. Snelson, a local Christian musician who was actively involved in his church, was arrested after new DNA evidence provided a break in the case. Crown counsel said they expect to bring forward around 45 witnesses as they make their case over the next four weeks.

Greene-Raine says having a young person on the board will be invaluable. “Some of us are greyhaired and retired so we have some time,” she said with a smile. “But we really do want to be connected to young people.” The Telus Thompson Okanagan Community Board becomes the 11th Telus community board in Canada and third in B.C. with the others being in Vancouver and Victoria. “I look forward to getting to know more about all of these organizations,” said Greene-Raine. “There is a process in place that makes it easy for us to use our knowledge and make decisions. It’s fantastic.” For more information, to apply for funds or contact the board go to www. telus.com/community and follow the steps to the Thompson-Okanagan Community Board.

RIFLE

When Canadian skier Nancy Greene retired from competitive racing in 1968, she was just 24-years-old and had just won a gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Grenoble, France. At that time, amateur athletes were not allowed to earn sponsorship money, but Greene knew she could leverage the gold medal into sponsorship dollars. She left the competitive slopes behind and embarked on a promotional career signing one of her first official contracts with a phone company known then as BC Tel. So it was fitting Thursday in Kelowna that Nancy Greene-Raine, now a Canadian senator and still a Canadian sports legend, introduced the new Telus Thompson Okanagan Community Board, a fundraising initiative that will hand out $300,000 a year to community groups in the Thompson-Okangan. “It’s almost like I’ve come full circle,” said Greene-Raine after the announcement. “For me personally, it’s a wonderful experience to be involved in making a difference.” Greene-Raine will act as chair of the Thompson-Okanagan Community Board, a group that will review funding proposals and be in charge of handing out $100,000 for the balance of 2011 and $300,000 each year after that to groups with a focus on youth and technology. Business and community leaders from Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, Osoyoos and Kamloops will make decisions on who will be granted money, handing out between $1,000 and $20,000 to deserving projects. While any project may get funding, the board is hoping it can work with projects aimed at youth. “This is a very exciting day for youth in the community,” said Steven Jenkins, a Telus regional manager. “When you take a look at this board we’ve all sat on boards that have provided specific funding for youth. “We now have the opportunity to leverage relationships the board has in these communities and put the funds back into the youth in these communities.” While the community

A small group of people can be seen gathering in front of City Hall. To an onlooker, it is apparent that several of the group members are carrying white canes. What is less obvious, potentially surprising, is the reason for the gathering. A car pulls up; the driver is Sharon McCoubrey, key organizer of the Lake Country Art Walk. Many folks might not yet make the connection, but this cannot be said of Sharon, who had contacted me several weeks prior, asking if I might assist with the organizing of a group of people who are sight impaired to attend this year’s Lake Country Art Walk. “This event is run entirely by volunteers,” Sharon pronounced during our visit, and

Even those of the four I rarely agree Robert Hobson, Andre Blanleil, Luke with politically aren’t weak and wishy

All told, it makes me wonder if this “fourchange” group is for change, or just for “four more middle aged white guys,” and lord knows, that’s hardly a progressive stance. This isn’t to say gender or age should be the most important decisionmaker at the polls, but there needs be a diversity of viewpoints among our elected officials. And, like it or not, dearly-beloved-middle-aged-whiteguys, every level of politics has come to understand that very simple fact. While civic maneuvers are a far cry from what’s happening in the federal arena, you’d be daft to miss the fact that there was a major changing of the guard the last time Canadians went to

the polls. The Liberal party of Canada was decimated and are now devising a strategy that will help them lose the “middle age white guy” stereotype. Meantime, the NDP are kicking up some excitement and hope for a new day, which is really what’s needed in politics today. As the young woman applying my facial unpleasantly pointed out this week: “Only old people, over the age of 30, are in politics and they don’t represent me.” Heading into an election that historically lures out less than 20 per cent of the population, I’d hope those who are passionate enough to plan this effort will widen their view beyond four more just like them.

Starving babies don’t make news the way falling skyscrapers do To the editor: Re: Media Focus on 10th Anniversary of 9/11 is Misdirected, Sept 9 Capital News. The sad part is you are absolutely right. My wife and I often talk about, as much as I try to stay as optimistic as possible,

will our children be able to have and raise children of their own? Will there be a planet, as we know it today? The global economy, history has showed, every empire that rises has always fallen. The food shortage—

750,000 people dying in four months just in one part of the world—in my opinion should be on the news every single day. But the unfortunately part is, this is not the case, and there is a dark reason for this. Watching the slow death of a child due

to starvation is just not fast enough for TV and not close enough to hit home. Although a tragic event, exploding, falling, burning skyscrapers caught on HD footage from every angle possible on American soil, is every marketers dream to

increase viewership and revenue. Please, keep writing as there are people listening, recycling, not watering their lawns, turning their TVs off and going outside while they still can. Peter Matejcek, Kelowna

To the editor: On Saturday, Aug. 27, my husband and I were walking in the downtown area when my hustband began to feel dizzy and grabbed onto a pole to fsteady himself. A few moments later he started to shake and had a seizure.

A couple nearby, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Purdue, were kind enough to help. Jack called 911 while his wife (sorry I forgot your name) assisted me in steadying him and keeping him on his side and his head from banging against the sidewalk. She was a nurse and

advised the paramedics and inhalator crew who attended soon after, what was happening. While the ambulance took him to Emergency the couple offered to assist me. I would like to thank everyone who stopped to help.

I would like to thank the paramedics who later returned to the site and located my husband’s hearing aid from the sidewalk and brought it to the hospital. I would like to thank Dr. Rhine in Emergency for explaining so well what he believed had hap-

pened. My husband was tired but has recovered from the seizure with only scrapes and bruises and a badly bitten tongue. The cause of the seizure is unknown. Marilyn Szita, Kelowna

The first exhibit was a collection of sculptures, described to us by local artist Lynden Beesley, together with a second artist, Mel Hunt. If I am not mistaken, Lynden’s Medusa was a slight favourite; who can resist feeling all those snakes? We were then escorted into the community centre, where Sharon described several pieces of fabric art, which were amazing to the touch. We were quizzed on our tactile abilities, as many of the pieces were representational works of nature scenes, while many others were deliciously abstract. Speaking of delicious, once we had satiated our artistic appetites, we were then invited to participate in the already in progress

wine and cheese reception. This outdoor space was buzzing with the sounds of conversation in tandem with the improvisational piano playing of Kelowna-based musician Jordan Leibel. Our table of eight visually impaired members, including guides, were filled with heart-felt appreciation for the creative experience we were gifted, yet there was more. The evening ended with a theatre performance by local playwright Carl Hare, The Eagle and The Tiger, after which we were all safely driven home. Talk about a cultural potpourri, complete with art for the touch, music for the soul, and theatre for the finale.

Shepherd is being challenged by former mayor Walter Gray, who has been critical of the current council for not having, in his mind, enough of a business focus. When contacted Thursday, Langton said nobody with the group was willing to talk and the letter was simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;a document sent out to our friends.â&#x20AC;? But Frost was willing to speak, saying none of the four targeted councillors should take it personally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about any particular individual,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding it is about the need for change on council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An awful lot of people out there agree with us.â&#x20AC;? But Hodge, who said he has known Frost for 30 years, said he was sur-

prised to only learn of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan from the media, adding it was hard not to take it personally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not surprised this has happened but I am surprised who the people are.â&#x20AC;? The feisty city councillor said he phoned Frost to confront him about the document and said Frost seemed surprised to hear from him. Frost told Capital News he was glad Hodge called. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not supposed to take it personally, but how can I not,â&#x20AC;? said Hodge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I won my last election (in 2008) by 39 votesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the skin of my teeth. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me this wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect 39 people.â&#x20AC;? Hodge also noted he was only elected to council three years ago and Craig two years ago in a by-election, pointing out how the document says the group is concerned about delays and dysfunction on council for the last six years. In addition to greater leadership on council, the group also wants more effective decision-making by council, better teamwork throughout the city and for council to focus on what it calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the big picture, not pet projects.â&#x20AC;? Four Change is also seeking donations from recipients of the document â&#x20AC;&#x153;to get the word out.â&#x20AC;? Despite this public call for his ouster, Hodge has his own message for Frost, Langton and the rest of the Four Change organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring it on,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Arsonist goose on the loose Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

A goose was the culprit in a small brush fire in West Kelowna on Thursday morning. Around 10:30 a.m., fire crews began work to extinguish the brush fire, which occurred on Angus Road, near Gellatly Road. Kerry Klonteig, Westside Fire Rescue assistant fire chief, said that witnesses observed the disoriented goose fly into nearby power lines. “Talking to RCMP that were on the scene, they had two witnesses that saw sparks from the wires and saw a goose fly into them,” said Klonteig. “We looked around to see if it was still around, but we didn’t come out with it. (I guess) it clipped the wires together and caused the spark and was able to not get shocked and flew off. “But it was definitely a goose that did it.” Klonteig said that this incident is the first of its type that he’s ever come across. “You get lots of circumstances where crows or something will land on a transformer and it’ll blow. But actually flying into the wires and making the two wires connect: I haven’t had that in my career.” The blaze threatened one structure; however, fire crews were able to protect the building from damage. “There was one building that it encroached upon a little bit. It burned a couple shrubs just around the house, but it didn’t get to the house at all.” It took crews approximately an hour and a half to put out the brush fire.

Mineral exploration company hires a VP Colorado Resources Ltd., headquartered in West Kelowna, has appointed Greg Dawson as vice-president of exploration. Dawson is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. and is a director of the Association for Mineral Exploration British Columbia. He has more than 25 years of experience in the exploration business and, most recently, was the president of Redtail Metals Corp. Previous to Redtail Metals, he spent several years with Teck Exploration Ltd. working internationally in Central Asia and South America. “I have known Greg for a number of years and he brings to the Colorado team a depth of experience in designing and conducting successful exploration programs in a variety of geographic and geologic environments,” said Adam Travis, president and CEO of Colorado Resources. Colorado Resources is currently engaged in the business of mineral exploration for the purpose of acquiring and advancing mineral properties located in B.C. and the Yukon. It is also seeking properties in Latin America.

Charity support illustrates caring nature of our residents I had the pleasure of attending or taking part in a couple of significant community events this past week, and the end result was a solid reminder of why I love living in Kelowna. On Saturday, Sept. 10, 800 plus area residents visited the 14th annual Okanagan Volunteer Opportunities Fair at the Parkinson Recreation Centre. More than 70 nonprofit or volunteer based organizations had information tables and members at the day-long fair, providing residents a

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge chance to learn more about their organization or cause. The successful fair featured the popular speed-matching component again this year, a high energy approach that has all the characteristics of speed dating with score

sheets and a stopwatch. “Daters” moved from table to table with a bell sounding every four minutes. It was a lot of fun to watch and clearly connected a number of residents with organizations. I’ve had the pleasure of sitting on the volunteer fair committee the past two years and they are a positive and effective group of folks led by the amazing Dawn Wilkinson, with Kelowna Community Resources. A tip of the hat to the committee members and volunteers who, ironical-

ly, help other volunteers. ••• Second on my schedule was the local fire department’s memorial service on Sunday, Sept. 11. Hundreds of area firefighters and their families took part in the solemn yet inspiring service. The entire morning was all top shelf with short but passionate presentations and speakers and the appropriate regalia on parade for such a fitting service. One of the highlights was the unveiling of a truly magnificent sculp-

ture honouring firefighters over the years. If you have yet to see the superb piece of artwork I suggest you stop by the Enterprise Way fire hall and give it a close look. The statue depicts a young modern day attired firefighter standing on the ground, arms reaching above his head, to accept the handoff of a young girl from a veteran firefighter, attired in firefighter gear from the early 1900s. The older firefighter stands on a ladder. The effective creation is probably my favou-

rite piece of artwork in the city—and certainly the most inspiring. The emotional morning reminded me of just how demanding and important a fire department and its members are to a community. The tragedy of 9/11 will never be forgotten or diminished, yet it helps serve as a terrifying reminder of the sort of risk and dangers that face our emergency personnel— firefighters, ambulance paramedics and police. I admire the intestinal fortitude and selflessness that is needed to stand the tests of being a fireman. Thanks to all of you! ••• Last but certainly not least was this past Tuesday morning’s breakfast kick-off for the United Way Campaign in town. As usual, the 7 a.m. breakfast event was likewise motivational and enjoyable. Even the breakfast was yummy, despite the

fact I rarely eat that early in the day. Testimonials by two people assisted by the United Way drove home the reasons why this organization so deservingly needs help. There are a multitude of wonderful causes in our community that need financial support, but few have as broad and effective an impact as the United Way campaign. ••• A quick reminder before the end of the page arrives. The seventh annual Night of the Arts concert and silent auction fundraiser is set for the Kelowna Community Theatre on Nov. 26. Headliners this year include Day Late and A Dollar Short, Robert Fine and the Dreamland Band, Deb Stone, and Cowboy Bob among others. The beneficiary of your support this year is Metro Centre.

The event, which introduced around 16 local lawyers to the public, ran under the moniker â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pro Bono Going Public 2011â&#x20AC;? and was sponsored by the Canadian Bar Association. Their aim was to inform clients on their legal mattersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;something an organization named Access Probono says has become more difficult since cuts to legal services that started in 2001.

Kelowna’s mayor says she would like to see the city’s top cop publish a list of local businesses that are owned and operated by gang members. But, according to Sharon Shepherd, RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon is legally not allowed to do that. “We have had a legal opinion about what we can and can’t do,” said the mayor during an address

to the Glenmore Valley Community Association Wednesday night. In a speech that touched on several issues, both particular to Glenmore and concerning the city as a whole, the mayor said she was concerned about the presence of gang members in her city and noted they own and operate businesses here, have families, pay taxes and have kids in the local school system. But in light of the targeted shooting in Kelow-

Sharon Shepherd na last month that took the life of Lower Mainland gang leader Jonathan Bacon, Shepherd said she

has been talking to local hotel and motel association members about what can be done to curb gang activity when out-of-town gang members come here. “We have to admit there are gang members in our community,” she said, adding she has been told eight different gangs are currently represented here.

At least one of her councillors may not like the city’s current focus on improving transit, but that is not stopping Mayor Sharon Shepherd from pressing ahead with a call for more local autonomy when it comes to decisions about the Kelowna’s regional transit system. Shepherd, along with mayors from several mediumsized and smaller B.C. municipalities and regional districts were in Victoria Wednesday to meet with Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom and demand their municipalities get a greater say in issues such as changing routes and providing new service. The mayors want to see an audit of B.C. Transit carried out and consideration of different models than the one currently being used. “We would like more autonomy in the Central Okanagan, to have more of a say,” Shepherd told Glenmore Valley Community Association members during that group’s annual general meeting Wednesday night. The mayor, who drove straight to the meeting from the airport after flying back from Victoria, said Kelowna finds it frustrating that it cannot make what she called simple changes to the bus system without going through Victoria first. One example, she said, was when the city built the H2O aquatic centre in the Mission and installed special areas for buses to pull in. But the city has been unable to get the closest bus route changed to put those pullout bays to use and deliver people closer to the facility. But while transit has been a focus of the current council, at least one councillor disagrees. Coun. Andre Blanleil said earlier this week while announcing his candidacy for the upcoming civic election that though he is not opposed to transit, road building should be a greater priority for council. “If traffic doesn’t move, buses don’t move,” he said. But following the meeting, Shepherd defended the focus on transit saying more efficient transit will not only help the environment and help reduce traffic on the roads, it will also help economic development because one of the biggest desires she hears from business that want to locate here is the need for a better transit system to get their employees to work early in the morning She said she also hears from young people here who want service extended later to avail of entertainment the city has to offer at night. She also said the controversial HOV lanes on Highway 97 should be renamed transit lanes because they were originally envisioned to allow buses on the new Bus Rapid Transit route to travel more freely along the highway. “Now we have RVs in the lane with two people in them,” she said. To the critics of council’s attempts to enhance transit in the region, she had one comment. “I can’t imagine our community having a decreased transit system or no transit at all.”

During the Bacon shooting outside the Delta Grand hotel downtown, a stray bullet went through the window of the Kelowna Art Gallery across the street. At the time there were childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art classes being held in the gallery. In addition to her con-

cern about crime and gangs, the mayor also said transit is a priority and parks and recreation, especially the proposed Glenmore Recreation Park and a connector road from Glenmore to UBCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campus require city hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. In the last few years, thanks to provincial/federal stimulus spending, seven parks have been completed in the city. The proposed Glenmore recreation Park park, would be one of four community parks the city wants to have in Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the others being the already established Ben Lee Park in Rutland, Mission Recreation Park and the Parkinson Recreation Centre. It is proposed for an 11-hectare site at Valley and Longhill Roads. But the land is currently in the Agricultural Land Reserve and city parks and public places manager

Terry Barton said it could be a long road to convincing the B.C. Agricultural Land Commission to allow the land to be used for a park. A park design is still a ways off but it could include buildings to house indoor recreation facilities, he said Another issue the mayor highlighted in Glenmore is the school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to build a high school in the area. But once again, the use of agricultural land could be an issue, so she said the school district has held on to the former Dr. Knox Midddle School site near the Apple Bowl and it could be used as a site for a new high school. In terms of the whole city, Shepherd highlighted four new, key aspects of Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official community plan. It includes, for the first time, a growth boundary, the addition of a fifth

town centre in the Parkinson Recreation CentreLandmark Buildings areaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in addition to south Pandosy, Rutland, Glenmore and downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as the designation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;characterâ&#x20AC;? areas near KGH and at the top end of Bernard Avenue and creation of a heath precinct from KGH to Cottonwoods, where the city expects more medical-related businesses to establish in the future. As for economic development, the mayor defended the work the city has done to make Kelowna more business friendly, saying it has improved how developers are dealt with at city hall, works with the regional economic development officer, has kept business taxes low, and has been recognized by the Union of B.C. municipalities as one of the most businessfriendly cities in the province.

GARDENING WITH NATURE

riculture, seven per cent for indoor residential, and a whopping 24 per cent for outdoor residential. That 24 per cent mostly goes to keep lawns green and thirsty ornamentals in peak condition, neither of which feed us. This set me to thinking of easy ways to reduce water consumption in our present landscapes. 1) Cut back on watering lawn. It won’t die. In most cities it is illegal to water lawns during the dry season. As soon as we get a good rainfall the grass will green up again. 2) Remove weeds from gardens as they compete with plants for water. 3) Water only in the cool, late night or early morning when there is much less loss due to evaporation. 4) Avoid overhead watering when it is windy. 5) Mulch all exposed soil. This really holds soil moisture, feeds the plants and reduces weed growth. Mulch is a layer of organic material laid one to two inches deep. Be sure to remove all weeds first and soak the ground well before applying. Straw is once again available and is a good mulch in vegetable gardens. I use it around my ornamental grasses and in the hidden parts of the perennial garden. Dean Dack (Classic Compost), who donated

two yards of compost as the early bird draw prize for our xeriscape garden contest, has lots of excellent compost mulch available. 6) Water plants with a watering wand so only plants that need it get water. I find this a very meditative practice. I get to enjoy my plants up close, observe the amazing variety of pollinators, and listen to the busy songbirds. The sunflower and Cosmos seeds are attracting many delightful Goldfinches. ••• This fall I will be teaching two night classes: Introduction to Xeriscape beginning Oct. 4 and 5. It provides practical information and examples for those who want to make changes to a current landscape as well as for those new to gardening in the Okanagan and for people creating a new landscape. For more information check the OXA web site below. Sept. 24 will be our next free guided tour in the unH2O Xeriscape Garden. Gwen Steele is executive director of the nonprofit Okanagan Xeriscape Association. Learn more about Gardening with Nature and plants for the Okanagan online at www.okanaganxeriscape.org.

Shade trees available for Kelowna homes Starting Monday, Kelowna residents can apply to purchase a tree through the City’s NeighbourWoods program. “NeighbourWoods is a popular program that encourages residents to help in ‘greening’ our neighbourhoods by growing and preserving our urban forest,” said Blair Stewart, the city’s urban forestry supervisor. “With 400 trees available, there is a limit of one tree per household, and we anticipate the program will sell out quickly.” Interested residents must fill out an application available online at kelowna.ca/environment under NeighbourWoods, or available at City Hall (1435 Water St.) and the Park Services office (1359 KLO Rd.). Applications will be available starting Sept. 19. Each tree is valued at $100, but is offered for only $30 (taxes included). Participants choose from a list of trees handpicked by the city. This year’s choices include the Cardinal Royal mountain ash, pyramidal hornbeam, skyline honey locust, snowbird hawthorne and Vanderworlf’s pyramid pine. Information about the tree types can be found under the Frequently Asked Questions posted online at kelowna.ca/environment under NeighbourWoods. “Currently our tree canopy is around 13 per cent. NeighbourWoods is one program that is helping us work toward our goal of 25 per cent coverage,” said Stewart. “Trees have many social and economic benefits including improving our air quality and reducing storm water runoff, diminishing climate change and reducing our energy requirements.”

For several years the property stood vacant with a large hole in the ground that regularly filled with water. But the current developer has moved the project along and expects to open what is now being described as the first phase in the spring. On Monday, council was told by planning staff

that the building is now about 80 per cent complete and while it has been drastically scaled down from the original vision, the first phase will have 108 suites, up from the 99 slated for this latest incarnation. Mayor Sharon Shepherd said she recently had a tour through the building and said she was impressed with the quality of the workmanship. Future phases of the development have yet to be planned.

Will Dean knows that his dream of competing in the Olympics is now within reach.

KELOWNA ROCKETS netminder Adam Brown

has returned to Kelowna after playing with the Edmonton Oilers prospects at theYoung Stars Tournament in Penticton.

Count-down to regular season The Kelowna Rockets have two more exhibition games this weekend as the team gets set for the 201112 Western Hockey League season. The Rockets travel to Vancouver Island to meet the newest WHL team the Victoria Royals tonight before stopping in Vancouver on Saturday to close out its pre-season schedule with a game against the Vancouver Giants. The Rockets are 4-0 so far in the WHL pre-season and are starting to get players back from various NHL camps. Goalie Adam Brown is back in Kelowna after playing with the Edmonton Oilers in the Young Stars tournament in Penticton. Brown was in net Wednesday in a 4-3 loss for Edmonton as the 20-year-old netminder made 25 saves. Forward Jessey Ast-

les was also returned to Kelowna after attending the Pittsburgh Penguins training camp. Several other players remain in NHL camps but Rockets assistant coach Ryan Cuthbert says at this time of the year it’s more about teaching players the system, no matter who is in the lineup. “Our game plan is very specific as to how we want to play as a team,” said Cuthbert. “With our players, it’s not so much about the individual. There is room for creativity, but everytyhing we do is going to be about the team, and playing within that system.” After the Rockets close out their exhibition schedule this weekend, the team will open the Western Hockey League regular season on the road Sept. 24 in Everett. The Rockets home opener is Oct. 1 against Vancouver.

GOING TO THE OLYMPICS WOULD BE AWESOME BUT ALL I CAN REALLY DO IS FOCUS ON MYSELF AND JUST WORK HARD…

Dean, a Kelowna Secondary School graduate, and the other members of Team Canada’s men’s four rowing boat qualified for the 2012 Olympics by finishing seventh overall at the recent World Rowing Championships. That means the boat will take part in the London Olympics next July. However, who rows in the boat can change leading up to the games. “It is within reach but I’m never going to count my eggs before they hatch,” said Dean this week on a visit back home to Kelowna to see friends and family. “Going to the Olympics would be awesome but all I can really do is focus on myself and just work as hard as I can.” Rowing Canada will not name the members of the men’s four until closer to the Olympic Games as it looks for the strongest rowers to place in the boat. For Dean and the other members of the boat that means they must keep getting better and faster through the winter training months. “It’s going to be up to the coaches,” said the

After closing out his university rowing career at the University of California in 2010 by winning the Intercollegiate Rowing Championships, Dean moved to Victoria to begin rowing full-time at the Victoria Rowing Centre. He was plagued by minor injuries his first year there but this season the 6-foot-5 215-pound Kelowna native came into his own, powering his way into the men’s four for this

year’s World Championships in Slovenia. “I was really honoured to be able to represent my country,” said Dean. “We were happy but not satisfied. We did well but we can do better. We want to come back and train harder so we can do better next year.” After a few weeks off Dean and the rest of the

Canadian rowers will be back to work, training three times a day, every day, in Victoria as they work towards the Olympics next year. He is officially a carded athlete through the federal government’s athlete assistance program and his training schedule leaves little time for even a parttime job to help offset the

costs of living. “Rowing is my job,” he said. “I spend all day at it. I love it. I have great coaches and I get to be around a bunch of really motivated people.” Without being able to work, Dean relies on the government’s carding system as well as his sponsors to get by. Currently those sponsors include Kelowna Hot Yoga and MTM Special Ops Watches but he is hoping there are more businesses he can partner with on his Olympic journey.

Triathletes go off-roading Local triathletes had to keep a watchful eye out for wildlife last weekend as they took their skills off-road near the McCulloch Lake resevoir. More than 60 adventurous triathletes took to the bush at the second annual XTerra Kelowna Triathlon at McCulloch Lake and Kelowna Nordic Ski Club under a sunny Okanagan sky last weekend. The off-road event comprised four independent events: A full triathlon (1,200 m swim, 25 km bike and 8 km run), a sport triathlon (600 m swim, 15 km bike and 4 km run), a full duathlon (4.5 km run,

25 km bike and 8 km run) and a sport duathlon (2.5 km run, 15 km bike and 4 km run). West Kelowna resident, Ian Crosthwaite took first place in the full triathlon in a new course record of two hours, five minutes, 53 seconds, breaking his own 2010 record. Kelowna’s Kari Bailey continued her spectacular racing season, with another course record in the women’s race in a time of 2:24:35. What makes Bailey’s achievement more impressive is that although she’s an avid mountain biking participant, this

was her first off-road triathlon. “The bike and run routes along the Nordic Cross-Country ski trails were bumpy but not technical and therefore made it achievable for the novice athlete,” Bailey said. “This event was a nice alternative to the typical road triathlon. This was more fun than any other triathlon I have done before.” In the sport triathlon Carla Peters took first place in the female category in 1:28:43. Eli Budwill finished in first place in male and overall in 1:17:41.

“The race was both challenging and enjoyable,” said Budwill, a Kamloops resident. “All aspects of the race had a twist of difficulty but with aid stations and a little bit of encouragement along the way the race was a great challenge and a lot of fun. Vernon’s Eric Byram led the pack in the sport duathlon with another course record set by Monica McCosh as leading female. The full duathlon was won by well-known Kelowna cyclist Axel Merckx and Melissa Lowenberg came in as fastest fe-

Offensive trio anchors Okanagan Rockets Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

With three of its top five point getters coming back for another season, the roster for the Okanagan Rockets major midget hockey team is set with a week to go before the 2011-12 B.C. Major Midget League season. Kelowna players Josh Ellis, who returns as captain, and Mitch Cook are back with the Rockets as is Harlan Orr of Vernon. The trio will be looked upon to lead the Rockets offensively with the team’s top two point producers off to junior hockey. “For me I think we did our job,” said Rockets manager David Michaud. “We graduated our top two point getters (Vernon players Alex Gillies and Jedd Soleway) and our next three guys are back with us so that’s good success for our program.”

The Rockets named its 2011-12 roster at this past Wednesday’s deadline and will keep 20 players as it looks to return to the BCMML playoffs after missing the post season last year. A few players remain on temporary B.C. Hockey cards as goalie Jackson Whistle is still with the Vancouver Giants while Luke Harrison remains with Victoria’s WHL club. Both players could still be back with the Okanagan Rockets or could stick in junior. Regardless, the team heads into its final two BCMML exhibition contests this weekend with the majority of the players that will compete in the 11 team regional league. “I strongly think we will contend,” said Michaud. “My optimism from August has carried over. After watching our returning guys settle in

and seeing how skilled some of our younger guys are, I think we are a team that will compete. I think we are a playoff team for sure, we just have to put things together.” Michaud and new

head coach James Eccles have put together a team that features seven players that played with the Rockets last season. Along with Ellis, Cooke and Orr, Kelowna’s Alex Gran and Vernon players Jordan Burns and Mat Lambert will look to build on their rookie seasons. Kelowna’s Morgan Johnston, 16, is back from Portland’s WHL camp after playing last season with the Kelowna midget Tier 1 team while a trio of West Kelowna players have made the team as 15-year-olds. Michael McEachern, Brett Minear and Justin Marek of West Kelowna are joined by Kelowna Minor Hockey product Gen Bryshun as first year players. The Rockets went 3-1 last weekend in a series of exhibition games held in Kelowna, playing mainly its younger players. This weekend against

Putting Our Players First!

The Okanagan Sun opens their 31st season, one that the organization is very excited about. For 31 seasons the Sun has provided graduated high school and midget football players the opportunity to play top flight junior football in the best city and in front of the best football fans in Canada. For many of our athletes, their time playing junior football was a precursor to moving onto University to continue their education, often through the lure of scholarships. The Okanagan Sun will offer its athletes the opportunity to stay in Kelowna and continue their post-secondary education at UBC Okanagan, Okanagan College or trade school through our own scholarship program. This scholarship program will allow our athletes to pursue their education sooner and help the Okanagan Sun build an even stronger team as we attract some of the best junior age football players across the country.

3RD ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP DINNER Thurs., September 22nd @ 7 pm

GUEST SPEAKER will be 11 time Canadian Football League All-Star, 9 time All-Canadian and Canadian Football League Hall of Fame inductee,

Football is alive and well at Kelowna Secondary School. With 42 players on the Owls’ varsity squad and another 46 on the junior team, the gridiron game has never been more popular at KSS. “Interest in football is growing in the city and we’ve had some success with KSS program,” said Owls coach Roy Anderson. “So between the two, I think that’s why you’re seeing so many kids coming out.” With a full compliment of players, the Owls’ continue their preparation for the 2011 B.C. high school football AAA varsity regular season Friday at 6 p.m. when they

host Seaquam Secondary in exhibition action at the Apple Bowl. KSS is coming of a dramatic 30-29 loss to Carson Graham in preseason play last Saturday in North Vancouver. After a sluggish start which saw them slip into a 22-0 deficit, the Owls kicked their game into gear late in the first half when co-captain and quarterback Sam Davies took matters into his own hands. “Sam basically took the team on his back, he stepped up like the leader he is and scored a touchdown for us, breaking about three or four tackles on the way,” said Anderson. “That changed the

whole momentum of the game.” The Owls dominated much of the second half and led 29-22 into the late stages before Graham scored a touchdown and added a two-point conversion for a one-point lead with two minutes to play. KSS came agonizingly close to winning the game, but the Owls were stopped on the one-yard line on the game’s final play. “It was a wild one,” Anderson said. “We saw lots of good things. I think once we figure out who we’re playing where, and the team gels, I think we’re going to have as good a team as we’ve ever had. There’s a lot of talent

out there.” Meanwhile, the Mt. Boucherie Bears will look to push their pre-season mark to 2-0 this weekend when they visit Rick Hansen on Friday afternoon in Abbotsford. The Bears downed the Clarence Fulton Maroons 34-14 last Friday night at the Apple Bowl. The Rutland Voodoos played Hugh Boyd on Thursday afternoon at the Apple Bowl. A final score wasn’t available at press time. As for Okanagan Mission Secondary, the Huskies open their 2011 Okanagan AA regular season tonight (Friday) in Kamloops against Norkam Secondary.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ CONSERVING HISTORY

Conserving fragile historical artifacts takes a steady hand Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

What do basketball and historic flag preservation have in common? Manual dexterity. OK, it’s not much of a joke, but neither are the mad skills exhibited by the Kelowna Museums’ associate director of collections and conservation Tracy Satin, as she carefully puts a lifetime’s worth of study to the test in The Ursula Surtees Regional Conservation Laboratory. Just as hockey players have incredible peripheral vision, a good conservation expert’s hand-eye coordination must be razor sharp as the art of preserving and, in some cases, repairing the artifacts carefully stored and used in the displays of Kelowna’s five museums, takes extreme precision. But how does one get into such a field? Well, that’s quite the story according to Satin. “I remember seeing a flyer once upon a time for conservation school and I thought that would be the best way to round out my career and not waste all the school I did before,” she says after a joking question on whether she went to school for 20 years yields a half-hearted “Well, yes.” At the time, Satin was working as a photocopy girl for Investors Group,

of success. The program was recognized well enough that when she applied to work at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History early in her career on a project to look after the Star-Spangled Banner, she landed the job and the chance of a lifetime to spend three years tirelessly washing the fabric with cotton swabs and makeup erasers and stitching around its many tears to avoid further degradation. Truthfully, the flag is a bit of a mess. Major George Armistead is said to have cut chunks out to give to friends and pay off gambling debts, leaving gaping conundrums for future museum staff tasked with saving the cloth that inspired the American national an-

them. Nevertheless, Satin was thrilled to be one of them. “The job can be really nerve wracking,” she said, noting a good conservation expert must have an incredible sense of touch to determine whether his or her actions are damaging the object at hand. Guided by the Canadian Association of Conservation and the American Institute of Conservation, she follows a code of ethics to determine when something should be cleaned or how it can be repaired, as she tries to weigh what preserving an item might mean versus restoration. A museum’s job is to slow down the rate at which items of historical import breakdown, not put them back together.

“Even water is a powerful chemical,” said Satin, “so we use special water to wash things— either deionized or reverse osmosis.” Like her work, her workspace is eclectic. Along the east wall, with a view of The Madison apartments on Ethel Street above, is a narrow window a couple of feet from the ceiling, letting in the only natural light. In fridges and freezers are natural history specimens—dead animals—and on a counter under the window, an example of one of her triumphs/failures/triumphs, depending on how one wants to frame the experience.

Repairs must be invisible to the public, yet still removable Museum from A33 Kelowna, with only memories of family vacations and her sister’s sworn vow that she saw Ogopogo as reference points, one of her first projects was a Barong panel. The length of a long kitchen counter, faded and dirty with spots of gold

leaf gleaming off its intricate carving, it’s supposed to hang in a temple and tell the story of creation with the lion-like Barong combatting Rangda, an evil, cannibalistic witch of the leyaks in Bali. The panel was purchased by the museum and came in covered in dirt and mud which Sat-

in painstakingly stripped away using her dental tools, cotton swabs and Qtips. This time-consuming attention to detail got her thinking. If the carving was so intricate, why were there paint drips all over the bottom? Flipping it over she saw the back of the piece was charred black, as though it had

been in a fire. That really got her wondering. “So I did some more research. If this was supposed to hang in a temple, why was the paint so sloppy?” she asked. “And that’s when I found out, when you want to make something look old you burn it and bury it in earth.” Whether or not the artifact is a fake cannot be verified at this point, but the discovery was a disappointment—or so she initially thought. Mulling it over a little further, though, she soon realized that forgery, and the practices involved, might be just as worthy of a museum’s research, collection and analysis as an original. And so the Barong panel remains on her desk some seven years after it was purchased, ready for any moment she can steal away from more pressing jobs to sort it out.

to decide how to clean, preserve and repair its smoke-damaged collection. Also on the to-do list is a hunt for a watchmaker to repair a doll that’s meant to dance. But she also has a heap of achievements like her little bat repaired with Japanese paper. “It never tears in a straight line,” she explains, noting the natural fibres and different grades of the Japanese paper make it easier to blend with bat flesh, particularly once she applies the paint. Whatever she does has to be both noticeable and removable—so as not to interfere, on an ethical level, with the original artifact; but it also needs to be invisible to those casually viewing a display. To say there’s an art to conservation is an understatement, though the nice thing is she also has a built in audience. Whenever a display goes up at the museum you can bet a little of Satin’s handiwork is in the mix as well. And while she won’t say what they are, she has prepared several special never-before-seen pieces for the Kelowna Museums 75th anniversary party coming up on Sept. 22.

cause high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heart beats. To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH � Sleep apnea capsules worked first night!

TRAVEL An American in Cuba

In August the first American tourists visited Cuba legally under a new program. Ellen Creager CONTRIBUTOR

HAVANA, Cuba— The mojitos were in our hands, and we could see the shimmering blue of the Caribbean. But this was no ordinary island vacation. Television cameras whirred as a group of Americans checked into Havana’s stately Hotel Nacional, as history was being made—by us. Except for a brief period from 2000-2003, this was the first time in 50 years that average Americans could legally visit Cuba. The trip, through Insight Cuba, would highlight Havana, Santiago de Cuba for arts and music, Trinidad on Cuba’s southern coast for colonial charm and Pinar del Rio for its rural natural beauty. The group of 30 Americans included a goat farmer, a psychologist, a wine expert, a social worker, an entrepreneur, a hospital administrator, a stock adviser, a lawyer and more. Their common denominator? They were all experienced

travelers. They all were fine with the requirement that the trip focus on cultural activities, not beaches or leisure, although one man wistfully asked, “Any chance of playing golf?” So I sipped my mojito and let the August heat seep into my bones. I was excited. And slightly worried about the dour rules of the trip. And also already in love with Havana. Havana, one of the great Spanish colonial cities of the New World, is like an exotic orchid with a few wilted petals. Fifty years of Communism hasn’t been kind to its upkeep, although Old Havana, its fortress, the neighborhood of Miramar and the Revolution Square area are splendid. The city of 2.2 million sprawls cheerfully in all directions, part pastel, part crumbling ruin, elegant in its promise of what was and could be again. In the next few days, we would get the complete tour of the city founded in 1515. But the first order of business was a lecture.

bit like a Walmart parking lot surrounded by government buildings. There was the impressive Jose Marti memorial that honors the father of Cuban independence from Spain. At the memorial art gallery, every photo and painting was of Fidel Castro. In the evening, the destination was the Fortress of San Carlos, the enormous defensive fort built by the Spanish in 1774. On the hot night with the moon rising, soldiers in 18th century uniforms set off a cannon shot that echoed all the way across to the twinkling Havana skyline. Before we left town, there was more to see. There was the Rum Museum, where tourists had a shot of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cuban breakfast.â&#x20AC;? There was the Revolution Museum, which includes everything from Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boots to the typewriter of a New York Times reporter who covered the conflict. The museum also displays pieces of an American B 26 shot down in 1961 and a turbine from a U 2 spy plane shot down during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962â&#x20AC;&#x201D;somewhat uncom-

was rocking the Malecon promenade near the hotel. Thousands of people were mingling, dancing, swarming. The thumping beat lasted long into the night. A retired social worker in our group, Betsy Blades of Baltimore, met a British tourist. The woman was astonished to meet an actual American. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do they know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here?â&#x20AC;? she asked, as if Blades might have dropped in by parachute. But it was not a totally strange question. Americans have come illegally to Cuba for yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but it is getting harder to do that. On this trip, many in the group asked that their passports be stamped as they went through Cuban customs. As the days went by, the group visited more museums than I can count, including the Literacy Museum, a hot, small spot devoted to Cubaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishment of teaching nearly its entire population to read in the years 1961-62. (I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy it, but many in the group said it was one of their favorite moments.) There was Revolution Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which looks a

Ernest Hemingway used to hang out, then visited the Leonor Perez maternity home. The home cares for high-risk pregnant mothers, four to a room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot (no air conditioning), but they are used to the heat. Two women, heavily pregnant and carrying twins, talked about their lives. We met a 12-yearold pregnant girl. We asked questions about Csection rates (about 25 per cent), epidural drugs (they use few), and everyone kept smiling and saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;gracias.â&#x20AC;? After that, the group tried to go shopping, but in Cuba there are almost no stores, not much to buy except on the black marketâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and spoilsport U.S. regulations allow Americans to bring back nothing except literature, artwork or music. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no cigars, no rum, no panama hats. In the evening, the group got a last-minute invitation to a concert in honor of Fidel Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 85th birthday, held at the Karl Marx Theater. Four hours, no intermission! Fidel did not attend. We did. After that, it was dark, and Carnaval, which is held in August in Cuba,

fortable for Americans. Gradually, though, some participants started flagging at the busy tour pace. Some skipped dinner and found their own meals. Some went to Carnaval in the evening and got conned. Some sank into the sofa cushions on Hotel Nacionalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wide veranda and smoked cigars. Some wandered around town on their own to take photos. One went to a Cubacell store to buy a cell phone that could call New York. Americans are not all that good with group travel. Too independent. But as the pieces of the trip all merged together and we stuck with it, it was clear we had gotten a very decent introduction to a piece of Havanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart. Now we were ready to head out of town to Pinar del Rio, a rural province to the west.

MOTORING ▼ ROAD TEST

Dodge Journey gets quantum improvements for 2011 I agree with author and relationship counsellor John Gray that men are from Mars and women are from Venus—at least when it comes to what turns their automotive cranks. I love sports coupes, sport sedans, classic muscle cars and occasionally a big, honkin’ 4x4 pickup truck. In short, I appreciate speed and power—and don’t mind a little pampering if it comes along with the package. My wife, on the other hand, reacts with a blasé ‘Oh, that’s nice’ every time I pull in the driveway with any of the above. She is generally unmoved

by performance, values comfort, but is thrilled by practicality. Which is why when I came home recently in the segment-leading 2011 Dodge Journey crossover, she had that glint in her eye that put me in mind of a recent sale at Pier One. My test vehicle was the fully-loaded R/T model with all-wheel-drive, which had enough familyfriendly stuff to make a lot of minivan owners envious—and to push its $30,995 sticker price up by several grand. From the outside, the Journey hasn’t changed much from the previous model, which was introduced in 2008. But under

Passenger cabin given an update

HURRY IN!

Dodge from B1 the skin, there have been some quantum improvements. First the greasy bits, which my wife chooses to ignore. This includes the redesigned and retuned suspension which provides a more stable ride that, for a tall vehicle, is reasonably well composed in the corners. Even more significant is the Journey’s boost in power. Sure, you can order the base vehicle, the $20,995 SE Canada Value Package, with its 2.4-litre DOHC inline four that delivers a modest 173 hp and 166 lb/ft of torque. But what fun is that when you can bump up to the SXT (starting at $25,995), powered by Chrysler’s new 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 that kicks out 283 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque. That’s 48 more horses than the 3.5 it replaces, and it is even more fuel efficient. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, performance is livelier than the outgoing model and power delivery is both smooth and quiet. The generous use of sound-deadening materials and insulation throughout the vehicle keeps the cabin reasonably hushed—even under hard acceleration. But all these enhancements—in my mind— would have been for naught had the company not updated the passenger cabin. It is here that Chrysler has made the

most significant gains, and has done so across its entire lineup. Gone are the cheaplooking, plasticky interiors. My tester for the week, albeit at the top trim model, was richly appointed, rivalling many premium crossovers I’ve driven. It starts with an abundance of soft-touch materials: in the doors, the dash and throughout the cabin. As you would expect in a fully-dressed model, my Journey had leather-trimmed seating, but this was double stitched, as were the materials in the centre armrest and door panels. Other nice touches include metallic accents and faceplates around the controls, chrome rings around the HVAC knobs and gauges, and illuminated front cupholders. The U-Connect Media Centre with 8.4inch touch screen is a step up from the standard 4.3inch infotainment system, and operates a pile of functions that include audio settings, MP3 player, heated seats, HVAC, navigation, clock, lighting, locks and more. I’m not typically a fan of touch screens for the basics—especially HVAC—but this one is intuitive, with big virtual ‘buttons’ and a display that responds readily to your finger. It comes standard on Crew and R/T models and, like my tester,

MOTORING Dodge from B2 can be further upgraded with Garmin Navigation ($750) and Driver Convenience Group (which includes backup camera and rear parking sensors for $700). Voice-activated Bluetooth is another add-on for $300, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not included at this price point. Some manufacturers are now throwing it in at the entry level, and in a vehicle as thoughtfully designed as the Journey, this should have been a no-brainer. This minor gripe aside, I gave my wife the fifty-cent tour starting at the rear doors which open to nearly 90 degrees. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small detail, but makes a difference when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly loading and unloading your kids and all their stuff. The second-row seats were the next stop on my tour. Tug a little strap on either outboard cushion and up pops a built-in booster seat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a $200 option, which is a little more than buying separate tchild boosters, but these are incredibly handy. In the footwells below, under two compartment lids, are storfage bins with removable liners. These are ideal for hiding valuables, or each

r

carrying up to 12 cans of pop, with ice. A flip of a lever gets the middle seats out of the way to reveal the optional third row ($1,375). Here, space is tight, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bad if the second-row passengers slide forward a little. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of seat travel in the middle row, and as an added bonus, both rows recline. The piece de resistance is the cargo area. I dropped the third row, which folds flat to provide 1,000 litres of cargo space, and then the second rowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which also folds flatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to expand this to 1,915. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet another underfloor storage tray at the back of the cargo hold, and in the R/T, you get a nifty rechargeable LED flashlight. Need a little more length, say for a ladder? The front passenger seatback drops forward to extend the cargo area all the way from tailgate to dashboard. Its seat cushion also flips forward to reveal yet more storage (on Crew and R/T models). And speaking of storage, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deep well under the centre armrest, where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a 12volt power point and auxiliary input.

Of course, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to buy the full-blown Journey R/T AWD to get a practical family hauler, as there are four lower-priced models and numerous option packages available for a variety of budgets. Even the base modelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Canada Value Packageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is well fitted with comforts and conveniences like keyless start, power windows, steering wheel audio and cruise controls, dual-zone climate control, tilt/telescopic steering, 4.3-inch Uconnect Touch media centre and more. The Journey stacks up well against the competition, starting at thousands less than the Chevrolet Equinox, Toyota RAV4, Ford Edge and Nissan Rogue, and holds an advantage over most in terms of cargo capacity, and offers seating for seven versus five. Needless to say, my wife was already talking about our next vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we had just purchased one last fall. I think I had her at the booster seats.

and stunning from a design point of view. But the cabin of the XF is what stands out for me with a rich, luxurious finish. Materials like the Bond grain leather seats, heated of course, are beautiful to look at and comfortable to ride in. My XF tester was painted a brilliant Polaris White colour outside with a lovely beige/brown interior combination inside. Throw in some Burl walnut veneer trim and Knurl aluminum accents and voila, you have an interior that has both a classy and classic look and feel. Up front, I found plenty of room and comfort for a six-footer, but the rear is a bit cramped. The steep sloping roofline above the rear doors also limits headroom in back. Otherwise, the interior is a joy to behold. The cast alloy Jag-

Elegance, class and refinement are words often associated with the iconic Jaguar brand. And for the 2011 model year, you can also add powerful to that list of words that describe the mid-size luxury XF sport sedan. This year the XF gets a major power train upgrade with the 385 hp, 5.0-litre direct injection V8 engine now standard on even the base-model XF Luxury. The 5.0-litre engine was offered in the midlevel XF Premium last year, but now becomes standard fare on the XF Luxury, replacing the previous 300 hp 4.2-litre V8. With the 5.0-litre this year also comes Jaguar Dynamic Mode, which modifies the engine and transmission settings for sportier performance. The Jaguar XF is the

only car in the segment to offer an all V8 lineup. The top-line XFR gets a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 that makes an eye-popping 510 hp. Even at the base level, the XF is one lovely car. My tester was the XF Luxury, starting at $62,800. Options included 19-inch chrome Artura wheels ($2,800) and a Cold Climate Package ($600) that includes a heated windshield and heated steering wheel. With freight and PDI of $1,350, the price as tested topped out at $67,550. The XF model is now into its third model year and it’s also Jaguar’s third year under the ownership of India’s Tata Motors, which purchased the brand from Ford Motor Company. One may think of the Jaguar as traditional luxury, but the new design trends are thoroughly modern. The XF, XK and XJ lines are all curvaceous

proper gear. Stop the engine and the selector automatically lowers back into the console. The engine start/stop function is performed with an illuminated button on the dash that pulsates like a heartbeat until pressed. As the engine roars to life, the phosphor blue illumination and mood lighting kicks in. Not all hot-looking cars perform as well as they look but the Jaguar XF doesn’t disappoint. The 5.0-litre engine boasts a 0-100 km/h time of about 6.5 seconds. If you have the need for speed, jump up to the supercharged XFR that gets you to 100 km in about 4.9 seconds. All models come with a sixspeed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. But for all the power that is available, this is one smooth-operating cat that can purr through city traffic in a civilized way until you enthusiastically punch the throttle. Then, the XF roars to life, putting you back in your seat as the power to rear wheels takes over. If you’re worried about fuel economy, this may not be the car for you. The XF 5.0-litre has a Natural Resources Canada fuel economy rating of 13.1L/100 km city and 8.2L/100 km highway while the XFR’s numbers are 14.1/9.3. For many, the XF Luxury will satisfy their need for luxury bells and whistles. Features include a navigation system with full colour touchscreen display, automatic headlamps with manual leveling, Sirius satellite radio, 6 CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary input, 60/40 split folding rear seats, automatic climate control, cruise control with automatic speed limiter, electronic parking brake, heated auto-dimming mirrors with integrated turn signals and puddle lamps, leather wrapped steering wheel, power sunroof and 10-way power heated leather seats. The XF Premium

Luxury moves to 19-inch alloy wheels from 18s and adds a blind spot monitor, Smart Key system, heated and cooled leather seats, front parking assist with rear-view camera, bi-xenon headlamps with cornering lights and electric rear sunshade. You can also upgrade here to the Portfolio Package that adds a suede cloth headliner, upgraded ebony trim, soft grain leather door panels and special floor mats. Then, the XFR takes to you 20-inch alloy wheels, a 440-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround sound audio system, hood louvres, rear spoiler, 18-way driver and 14-way passenger heated and cooled soft grain leather seats and not to be forgotten, the powerful supercharged 510 hp 5.0-litre engine. Prices start at $62,800 for the XF Luxury, $68,300 for the XF Premium, $71,800 for the XF Premium with Portfolio Package and $85,300 for the XFR. A hefty price tag for sure, but a lot of car for the money with a new warranty program that is best in class. The Jaguar Platinum Coverage is a no-cost warranty program for five years or 80,000 km that covers all scheduled maintenance and no-cost replacement of wear and tear items. A 24/7 roadside assistance program is also included.

Mazda wants us all to have fun while keeping the skies clear blue Jim Robinson CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

Mazda is planning to be one of the greenrest automotive makers ton the planet applying new thinking to a known power source—the internal combustion engine. By next year consumers will be able to buy Mazdas featuring major fuel savings and emission reductions with no comrpromise in driving dynamics. Several years of work are now coming together in a new generation of gasoline and diesel engines, improved model aerodynamics, vehicle weight reduction, new chassis and transmission tdevelopments that are all tembraced within Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology. SKYACTIV focuses on four central technologies: • New generation SKYACTIV-G gasoline engine efficiency that delivers a 15 per cent increase in fuel reconomy and torque. • The introduction of new rSKYACTIV-D diesel engine technology that delivers a 20 per cent fuel teconomy improvement thanks to the world’s lowest diesel-engine comtpression ratio. r• The introduction of new six-speed automatic transmission available on both tgasoline and diesel as well as a new lightweight compact six-speed manual transmission which deliver fuel economy and therefore emission improvements. • An all new platform prot

/

viding highly rigid body and chassis that achieve outstanding crash safety performance while being 110 kg lighter than predecessor. The diesel is intriguing because Mazda, instead of raising the compression for more power, lowered it to 14-1. For instance the VW TDI has a compression ratio of 16.5-1. Using a longer stroke and decreasing friction, the result is 20 per cent less fuel being used without resorting to using urea to remove nitrous oxide which is necessary in high compression diesels. The downside is knock and misfires especially at startup. What Mazda did was incorporate variable valve timing, piezo direct fuel injection and unique ceramic glow plugs. With a two-stage turbocharger it produces 173 hp and 310 lb/ft of torque from 2.2-litres. That compares to the VW 2.0-TDI that produces 140 hp and 236 lb/ft of torque. The gasoline engine is a new 2.0-litre with a compression ratio of 13-1 that will be increased to 14-1 buy the time it goes into production. That makes it currently the world’s highest compression mass production gasoline engine on the market. For instance the Ferrari Italia has a compression ratio of 12-1. The result is a claimed 15 per cent decrease in fuel consumption and 15 per cent more power using

normal regular gasoline. To get there, Mazda engineers used a 4-2-1 exhaust system like a Formula One car, a stratified air/fuel mixture and pistons that are 20 per cent lighter and incorporate a central depression on the piston crown that adds more downward thrust at the point of ignition aided by a longer stroke. I had a chance to drive

both the diesel and gasoline engines with both the new manual and automatic transmissions briefly at a press presentation in Vancouver. These were very rough prototypes, many without gauges and you could see where the body work had improvised with

ging with highway traffic. Of the two transmissions, I preferred the automatic. The only time I felt the gears change was with the pedal to the metal. Otherwise it felt like a CVT without the nauseating ‘rubber banding’ effect. Both transmissions can handle up to 340 lb/ft of torque. We also had current production cars there to gauge against the test mules. There was no real difference between the gasoline engines I could tell but there was a definite difference in the diesels. We do not get the current 2.2-litre Mazda diesel here and it’s probably a good thing as it felt bog slow compared to the SKYACTIV-D. By concentrating on the internal combustion engine, Mazda feels it can provide what they call ‘sustainable zoom zoom.’ I spent quite a bit of time with Kiyoshi Fujiwara who is the Executive Officer of Product Planning. In short, the SKYACTIV buck stops with him. He told me one of the challenges was producing the next generation of Mazdas which would above all retain Mazda’s sporty characteristics.

CONTRIBUTED

MAZDA will begin building its next generation of cars and trucks with gasoline or diesel engines using SKYACTIV technology that provides 15 to 20 less fuel consumption along with the marque’s ‘zoom zoom’ sporty handling. He called it ‘jimba itta’ or a oneness of car and driver. Building a car that gets astounding mileage

is one thing, but to make it appealing to drivers, he said, is quite another. He called SKYACTIV a way to have ‘fun

under a beautiful blue sky’. Has a nice sound, doesn’t it?

Road rule reminders for the busy back to school weeks By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC The first few weeks of back to school can be a busy time for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users. Getting used to school zones once again is proving to be a difficult task for some drivers who still choose to disobey the speed limit in school zones.

School zones are in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday (school days). If a 30km/ hour sign is posted beneath the school zone, motorists must slow to 30 km/hour. If there isn’t a sign posted, drivers must slow their speed when children are on the roads. This is likely before school starts and after the school day ends, when children are walking to and from school.

Police officers are also on the lookout for drivers who disobey rules regarding school buses. Drivers MUST stop for school buses when the lights are flashing and the stop sign is activated. This includes drivers travelling in both directions as children are likely to be crossing the road. The common misconception is that only drivers stopped

behind the school bus must stop, however this is not the case. Getting caught passing a school bus when lights and stop signs are activated is a $167 fine and three points on your licence. The message for drivers during the busy back to school weeks: slow down, obey school zone rules and watch and obey school buses as well. • Road Test Packages • Get 6 Months Off your ‘N’ • Get School Graduation Credits

VALL, GERALD (GERRY) PEDER Born in Naicam, SK to Peder and Petra Vall on June 20, 1939 , passed away September 3, 2011 aged 72 years. Survived by wife Marie of 44 years, son Darren (Heather) and their son Brett, daughter Denise and her children Devin, Taylor and Sarah, brother Raymond (Vicki), sister Sheila (Vern) brother Brian (Aiko) and many nieces and nephews. Also Marie’s family Bernice, Gladys, Harvey (Margaret) Pauline and their children. Predeceased by his parents, sisters Evelyn and Irene, Marie’s parents Murdo and Maude Taylor, Marie’s brother Archie and brother-in-law Sam Yager. Also many four legged buddies whom he loved deeply. Gerald worked very hard all of his life to take good care of his family, working well into his sixties. Gerald built and repaired Pioneer grain elevators in Saskatchewan. He and Marie married in 1967 and moved to Kelowna in 1969. Gerald was a long time building contractor in Kelowna retiring in late 2006 when he became sick. He also played hard, snowmobiling into his sixties with Darren and the boys; Jeff, Derek, Gene, Luke, Tony and many others, when grandson Devin got big enough he went along too. Gerald stayed up late many nights modifying his sled so he could beat the boys and put high marks on the mountain. Marie was sworn to secrecy to not tell Darren what he was doing. He still had his first snowmobile from 1967. Thanks to his many friends who visited while Gerald was in the hospital for the last nine months – Al, Jeff, Jack M., Mark, Tony, Eamon, Derek, Gene and anyone else we may have missed. He is finally at peace and free of pain and with his Dad in Heaven. A family service will be held in Saskatchewan at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Crohns & Colitis Foundation, 151-32500 South Fraser Way, Suite 213, Abbotsford, BC V2T 4W1.

showcase W OF PRIME INTEREST

Consider all your available home renovation financing options Don’t want to leave the neighbourhood? Or do you have the hassle of selling, rebuying, packing and moving. Or, does your home need to be more environmentally friendly to save on energy costs? If the answer is yes to either or all of those questions, it’s time to renovate. Canadians spend almost $30 billion dollars a year renovating their homes. There are many different reasons to renovate a home and there are a number of different ways to finance such a project.

EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS

Your own resources—for smaller renovation projects, you may consider self-funding material costs, especially if you plan to do the work yourself. Credit card—this is only an option if you know the funds will be there to pay it off in full before interest charges. Big box store ‘Do Not Pay’ options backdate interest at 28+% if not paid in full by due date. Use caution with this choice. Personal loan—you pay regular payments of principal and interest for a set period, typically one to five years. The interest rate on a personal loan is typically less than that of a credit card. The down side is once you pay off your loan, you will have to reapply to borrow any new funds needed. Personal line of credit—the popular choice for ongoing or long-term renovations since it lets you access your funds at any time. A line of credit offers lower interest rates than credit cards, and charges interest only on funds used each month. And, as you pay off your balance, you can access remaining funds, up to the line of credit’s limit, without reapplying. Secured lines of credit and home equity loans—

these options offer all the advantages of regular lines of credit or loans, but are secured by your home’s equity. They can be very economical, since they offer preferred interest rates, however, initial set-up costs including legal and appraisal fees may apply. Lines of credit and home equity loans are usually limited to 80% of your home’s value. Mortgage refinancing—when funding major renovations, refinancing your mortgage lets you spread repayment over a long period at mortgage interest rates, which are usually much lower than credit card or personal loan rates. This type of financing can allow you to borrow up to 80% of your home’s appraised value. And with today’s rates such as 3.09% fixed for four years, your new payments could be less or the same as they are now. Up to 85% of your home’s equity can also be provided when insured by CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance. And remember to plan for the unforeseen—set aside a 10 to 15% overrun in your budget.

ENERGY SAVING PROGRAM GRANTS AND REBATES

The federal government has renewed the EcoEnergy Retrofit until March 31, 2012. Homeowners may be eligible for grants of up to $5,000 when incorporating more energy-efficient solutions. Just one more good reason to start today.

TOWNHOME LIVING at the Mission Group’s Dwell project in Kelowna on Ambrosia Road is enhanced by the kitchen and balcony features included in the unit design feature package.

Townhome living lifestyle made easy Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

The urban lifestyle in Kelowna is selling briskly at Dwell. A Mission Group project on Ambrosi Road between Highway 97 and Springfield Road, Dwell has proven to be a popular destination for urban orientated home buyers looking for a townhome loaded with features. The top feature at Dwell is a roof top terrace for each townhome. A fully functional outdoor living space and clever expansion of the townhome concept, no

condo with a balcony at this price point has a hope of competing in terms of spaciousness. It is a value added bonus that has lifestyle buyers snapping up the twoand three-bedroom floor plans. Dwell is halfway completed with residents in four of the project’s eight buildings. Two of the 25 townhomes in the first four buildings remain to be sold and are move-in ready. The next phase of two buildings will be ready for owner occupancy in early spring 2011, and the final

two buildings are slated to break ground this fall with late summer 2012 movein dates. Bob Anderson, marketing director for Mission Group, expects the remaining three-bedroom townhomes to follow Dwell’s historical sales pattern and be sold in advance of building completion. Anderson notes that some of the larger units also have fenced back yards. The two-bedroom homes in the remaining buildings have been tweaked to closely dovetail with market prefer-

ences. There are variations on Dwell’s interior design theme, as the two-bedroom townhomes feature a dual master bedroom floor plan each with a full ensuite bathroom. Homeowners at Dwell tend to be singles, young couples and active retired couples who are looking for a floor plan that fits with their lifestyle, says Anderson.

Those buyer preferences have influenced Mission Group to switch some three-bedroom floor plans to two larger bedrooms. “Buyers want that space to reflect how they live. There are variations in the floor plans, including two bedroom plus den,” explained Anderson. The main floor has options as well. Kitchens

can be found either at the back of the floor plan or in the middle, with the living room and dining rooms arranged in relationship to the kitchen. The finishing details are consistent with the high standards Mission Group has built its business on. Everything from the invisible (acoustic engineered walls for peace and quiet) to the visi-

ble (stainless steel kitchen appliances) has been thought of. “Mission Group is about the best experience possible for the customer,” said Anderson. “From our designs for the way people live their life to after movein, Dwell is well built and well designed.” See Dwell B22
