Stripper plan goes ahead Western News Staff

There will be adult entertainment at Nite Moves. However, the two owners of the nightclub located in the 300 block of Main Street are more than a little frustrated that their nearly renovated business probably will not be allowed to open their doors during lunch in order to compete with the one establishment in Penticton currently presenting adult entertainment: Slack Alice’s. Gus Dommasch and Dale Smith said that Penticton council acted unfairly when it decided to recommend the BC Liquor Control and Licensing Branch reject their bid to extend Nite Move’s hours of operation to 11 a.m to 2 a.m., from the current 7 p.m. to 2 p.m. because, some on council said, it would not be an appropriate location for a strip club. “They say they’re worried about the kind of clientele who is going to be hanging out in the downtown core. Well, come on, what do they think is going to happen?” said Smith. Dressed in dusty construction gear, Smith said that he and Dommasch have done most of the almost-completed renovation work themselves, replacing the club’s 80s aesthetic with thousands of dollars worth of flooring, paint and new bars. “Basically, what they are saying is if somebody watches a stripper then they a dirtbag,” said Dommasch, who’s

Dommasch. “We want to bring in big bands, shows and live adult entertainment ... just try a whole bunch of different stuff and see what works. Try to make it a fun place for people to come out and have a good time.” The two said that they have at least a couple of businesses who have agreed to provide food for their clientele should they get to operate during lunchtime and that in the future they would like to add a kitchen. At last council meeting, Coun. Andrew Jakubeit moved that the city try to amend zoning bylaws that in essence would ban adult entertainment on Main Street or anywhere else in the city without council’s approval, while continuing to permit it at Slack Alice’s. The motioned was postponed until June 7. However, located less than three blocks from Slack Alice’s, the Nite Moves owners said the motion demonstrates some on council are willing to create double standards in the city. “We are part of the same downtown core as Slack Alice’s,” said Dommasch, asserting that his business utilizes first-rate security practices, including the use of an ID card-scanner system that keeps track of nightclub troublemakers throughout B.C. “Slack Alice’s should have competition. They can’t be the only business in town. It is not fair. It keeps people straight and playing fair when there is competition.”

uncle has owned a strip bar in Fort St. John for over 20 years. “It is not dirty, scummy people. There is all sorts of people, from every walk of life. There’s business people that come in. Lawyers on their lunch break. There are ladies that go in and watch. “Who are they to judge people? When you start (classifying) people as undesirable then it becomes stereotyping. To me, it’s not right.” Dommasch, who has owned and operated Nite Moves since 2005 — Smith re-bought in last year after selling his share in 2006 — said that since the economy crashed he has been struggling to break even. Part of the limitation of a nightclub, he said, as opposed to a pub or bar, is that most of their clientele don’t show up until around 11 p.m., meaning they have to make the vast majority of their money in a three-hour period. On top of that, most clubs only have three busy nights a week, in the winter maybe less. “We want to expand our hours because we don’t want to try to make our buck in just those 12 hours,” explained Smith. “We want to be open and have an honest place for people to sit and relax and not try to pump out the alcohol and send them on their way.” Dommasch and Smith said that in order to get people into Nite Moves before the clubber hours, they need to expand the scope of their business “There’ll be a lot more entertainment,” said

News Fires gut Oliver businesses over the long weekend BY MARK BRETT Western News Staff

Two Oliver businesses are no more following a second major fire in less than 48 hours in the south Okanagan community. The latest was Monday night at Oliver Auto Wrecking Salvage where flames shot high into the night sky and the sound of explosions rang out at the 91st Street property during the height of the blaze. “The call came in at 9:45 p.m. and upon my arrival it was fully involved, the building, cars, everything,” said a tired Dave Janzen, chief of the Oliver Fire Department. “It’s an auto wrecking yard so you’ve got paint cans, aerosol cans, oxyacetylene tanks, propane bottles and containers of gas so it’s very dangerous. “There’s not much you can do other than establish a safety zone and just let it burn.” Five fire trucks and about 25 firefighters spent about six hours on scene. Damage is estimated to be well in excess of a half-million dollars and although the cause has not been determined, at this time Janzen does not believe it is suspicious in nature. He also doesn’t feel there is any connection between this one and Sunday’s fire at the downtown Mesa Hotel which left a little piece of town’s history as little more than a pile of rubble. By the time crews from the Oliver Fire Department arrived on scene of that fire shortly after 7 a.m. the three-story, wood structure was also completely engulfed despite their best efforts were unable to save the building. In the days following the blaze many people stopped by or slowly drove past the lot on the east side of 97th Street where the bright blue, three-storey hotel had stood for over four decades. Among them was Lloyd

Chief Dave Janzen of the Oliver Fire Department looks through the burned-out remains of the historic Mesa Hotel that went up in flames Sunday. Crews were called out Monday night to a second major fire at the Oliver Auto Wrecking Salvage yard on 91st Street. The two incidents are not believed to be related.

Fairweather of Osoyoos whose grandfather Harold Fairweather built the original 125-room lodging in 1912 in New Westminster. “It was rather sad, that’s for sure,” said Fairweather after viewing the fire scene. “I just spent a few minutes there and had a look at the front and had a look at the back and just thought about it for awhile. “It’s a sad day and it will leave a big hole in the community.” He remembers his grandfather often talking about moving the build-

ing which involved loading the numbered pieces onto flat-deck rail cars for the trip to Kamloops and then Kelowna and from there by barge along Okanagan Lake to Penticton. “They docked where the casino is now (Penticton Lakeside Resort) and trucked it to Oliver,” said Fairweather. The only casualties were a few chairs that were knocked off one of the trucks into Vaseux Lake after coming in contact with a large rock overlay. Constructed at a cost of

$3,500 as the Queensborough Hotel, it was originally intended to house travelers and long-term boarders. However a year later the recession and other factors put an end to the dream and the Fairweathers decided to disassemble the building and move it. According to Janzen, the fire is believed to have started on the top floor and although there were some renovations underway no one was thought to have been inside. “When I got there, there were

3

heavy flames coming out the top floor window and flames were just breaking through the roof,” said the chief. “At that time we were just trying to hold the fire to the original building until I was able to get heavy equipment to knock the building over. Unfortunately there was nothing else we could do, my priority was to save the buildings to the north and the south.” Despite a lack of fire wall protection neither structure on either side of the Mesa received more than minor smoke damage. One firefighter suffered what Janzen termed a stressrelated injury and was taken away by ambulance and later released. The chief has since spoken briefly to the owner who he declined to identify, saying only he is from Summerland. Damage was estimated to be about $1.4 million. At this point the chief would not comment on whether the incident is suspicious in nature only that it is being investigated by the fire commissioner’s office and the RCMP. The only commercial activity at the Mesa was Rumours Bar and Grill and the Crush Pad Bistro located on the ground floor. Both were closed at the time of the fire. The upstairs floors had not been used to house guests for a number of years due to a failure to meet fire code standards. In total over 30 firefighters, including volunteer members from the communities of Okanagan Falls and Osoyoos battled the fire. In addition to the five emergency vehicles, two bucket trucks from FortisBC were used to allow crews to apply water from an aerial vantage point. “Those guys did absolutely fantastic job considering what we were faced with,” said Janzen. “Those firefighters worked their butts off to save the neighbouring buildings. “Overall things worked out as good as could be expected.”

Osoyoos man on trial for shooting a St. Bernard in the face KRISTI PATTON Western News Staff

The owner of a St. Bernard couldn’t believe what she was seeing seconds after an Osoyoos man told her he was going to shoot her dog. “He put the gun to her nose, pulls the trigger ... I was frozen solid. The dog didn’t drop, I was thinking what did I witness? Why is she still standing?,” said Teya Coty, the owner of a St. Bernard named Pepper while giving testimony last week at the Penticton provincial courthouse. “(The accused) turned to me a little embarrassed that it didn’t go off, cocked it, put it to her face and the gun went off.” George Cimbala is standing trial by judge on charges of unnecessary pain and suffering of an animal and unlawfully injuring an animal

for the incident that took place on May 27, 2008. The court heard Pepper and Coty’s other dog, a Bichonpoo named Sprite, had escaped her house near Osoyoos while Coty was working in her vineyard. Coty, drove to a side road and was quickly alerted to their whereabouts seeing Peppers tail up “kind of like a white flag.” Sprite had already made her way through the field to Coty, while the lumbering St. Bernard was sauntering towards her owner. This is when Cimbala, came out “shaking his fist, yelling and very agitated that the dogs were on his property.” “He was shaking something I thought was a stick saying, ‘your lucky I didn’t shoot your dog’ when I realized it was a rifle,” said Coty. Pepper began barking at

“He put the gun to her nose, pulls the trigger ... I was frozen solid.” — Teya Coty Cimbala as both edged closer towards Coty. Cimbala yelled to the dog owner that the animals had attacked his chickens. Coty told the court that she asked Cimbala to wait until she safely put her dogs in the car and then she would come look at the chicken coop and if they had done any damage she would reimburse him. Instead, she was horrified as Cimbala pushed a gun towards the St. Bernard and shot her family pet. The man then walked back to his house leaving them there. Coty realized it was impossible to pick

up the 120 pound dog herself to get it to the car. “I thought she was going to pass.” she said through tears on the witness stand recalling that she was sitting with the dog wishing she could take Pepper to her home to die, instead of laying in a field. “After about five minutes of me petting her she lifted her head, regained her stance and I took her to the vet.” A veterinarian who first saw Pepper that night after the shooting said the St. Bernard’s face was “obliterated,” and there was nothing left on one

side of her nose. The vet said all she could do was clean up Pepper’s wound and treat the dog for shock and pain. A collar was put on Pepper to keep the dog from disturbing the wound area until the morning when she could have surgery. The vet told the court that she “never found a feather” on the dog or in its mouth while cleaning Pepper. Dr. Marco Veenis next saw the dog at the Okanagan Vet Hospital in Kelowna the following day and examined Pepper saying she had a large hole on the left side of her face, fractures of the hard palette and upper jaw bone, damage to the molars, teeth missing (roots were still intact) and a x-ray showed the dog had many small lead pellets in its nose, hard palette and back into the tongue and neck area. Veenis said

he removed close to 40 lead pellets but did not remove all of them stating when it is a gun shot wound there can be more damage done removing them that causes infection to the tissue. When asked by Crown counselor Alexander Janse if the dog ever showed aggression, evidence of consuming chicken or evidence of feathers caught in Peppers teeth Veenis simply answered, “no,“ each time. After treating Pepper’s injury, in which Veenis said he could look straight into the dogs nasal cavity, he relayed to the owners that she could have her nose fixed surgically but it would take viable healthy tissue, which only comes with time. Cimbala is slated to return to court on Wednesday to fix a date to resume the trial.

nection to burglaries in other Interior communities, including Merritt, 100 Mile House and Kelowna, were stayed. McElroy also pleaded guilty to seven of 10 charges in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. He made off with $3 million in jewelry, cigarettes, electronics and cash from a number of businesses over a ninemonth span that began in the fall of 2008. In every burglary, the phone lines were cut, alarm systems dismantled and sledgehammers and other equipment used to

gain entry to the businesses, usually through a back entrance. Despite the crime’s high level of sophistication, Crown prosecutor Iain Currie said the crimes do not require jail time. “These were not unsophisticated break and enters in three different provinces,� Currie said. “However, there is no reason to think, but for these offences, Mr. McElroy would not be successful at life.� In addition to being caught in Winnipeg, Currie said McElroy’s guilt was established

through the 14,000 text messages to various people, placing him at the scene at the time of the crimes. The former Thompson Rivers University business student was free on bail from Manitoba at the time of his June 2, 2009 arrest in Kamloops, where he spent nearly nine months behind bars. He had been free on bail since Jan. 26. Under conditions of his sentence, McElroy is subject to a curfew for two years, is banned from being in places that primarily serve alcohol and cannot have a cellphone.

As well, there were no reports of any serious accidents on the weekend which is traditionally one of the most dangerous.

EDITORIAL

Kudos to council for bike study C

ouncillor Andrew Jakubeit deserves a pat on the back for his drive to get Penticton city council and staff thinking ahead about what they want the city’s transportation network to look like in the future. Jakubeit was the driving force behind getting council to order a study of Penticton’s existing bike network and start laying groundwork for potential new or alternate cycling routes, protected bike lanes and tying the network into regional trail systems. It’s a good thing too, especially in light of a councillor suggestion the city should take a step backward and eliminate the bike lane along Government Street. This is a bigger issue than just how people get to work or the store. It’s really a question of philosophy and what we want the community to look like two decades from now — it’s all about creating a livable community. There are some bad examples around the province about what can happen without solid long-range planning that not only looks at what is needed for growth, but what is needed to make a livable city. Surrey, for example, has been struggling for years with the urban sprawl developed in it’s early days by letting commercial developers have free rein over properties along the King George Highway, which at one point was simply an unending series of strip malls piled on top of each other, with breakneck traffic down the middle. Penticton already has an ideal setup for promoting the use of bicycles as alternate transportation. The climate is good, the main portion of the city has a limited area and other than the sides of the valley there are few hills in the physically limited centre area of the city. So rather than taking the backward step of eliminating a bike lane, it’s great that council has decided to look at how this valuable, economical means of transportation can be included in the city’s growth plans.

B.C. won’t do a California on HST

T

he anti-HST petition drive is closing in on its goal, with all of June still to go. It’s a rout in most of the province for the motley mujahadeen that runs under the ragged banner of shrub merchant Bill Vander Zalm and tax warrior Carole James. It recently fell to me to advise a group of fresh recruits in Harrison Hot Springs that there was no urgent need to drive to Chilliwack and sign the thing. By early May the B.C. Liberal bedrock of Chilliwack-Hope already had almost twice the signatures it needs to qualify under B.C.’s initiative legislation. There are pockets of resistance to the anti-HST jihad, and they are oddly distributed. Zalm and his field commanders like to talk tough about Point Grey, the leafy redoubt of Premier Gordon Campbell. Perfect place for a “targeted recall” effort, they hint, should the government use its majority to stall or ignore the petition. But Point Grey is where the Fight HST forces have had their feeblest effort so far, with only 31 per cent of their target met as of May 16. Up in Peace

TOM FLETCHER B.C VIEWS

River South, a place spiritually aligned with Alberta, they had that many signatures the first day. By pouring insurgents into the coffee shops of Kerrisdale and Dunbar, the Fight HST forces should win the Vancouver areas where their start has been slowest. But strangely, NDP strongholds of Kensington, Kingsway and Mount Pleasant are also notably sluggish about rising up against the HST, along with Finance Minister Colin Hansen’s Quilchena and the swing seat of Vancouver-West End. (For the record, at last count Fight HST also remained

short of its goal in AbbotsfordMission, Abbotsford West, all seven Burnaby and Coquitlamarea seats, all three Richmond seats, North VancouverLonsdale, both West Van seats, and three Surrey seats held by the NDP. Some of these, as well as Prince GeorgeMackenzie, are probably done by the time you read this.) Still, it’s safe to assume the first successful initiative in B.C. history is upon us. So what’s next? Hansen showed his cards a bit last week. B.C.’s neverused initiative law says the petition must be referred to a B.C. Liberal-controlled committee, which will have the option of referring the issue to a province-wide referendum or turning the petition into a bill to present to the legislature. “They had a referendum in California a few years back on tax measures,” Hansen said. “It’s not serving them very well today.” In fact California has been using its initiative legislation for a century, and an industry of professional petitioners has emerged. People love it. The state is currently using it to consider legalizing and taxing marijuana. Oh yes, and

California is broke. Governor Arnold Schwarzennegger is among those who say the state is handcuffed by spending and tax rules imposed by voter referenda. One of its more notorious efforts was Proposition 13, which ended an upward spiral of property taxes by slashing them 57 per cent. The local government of Orange County, one of the richest places in the world, declared bankruptcy in 1994. Back here in B.C., you may have heard that some national chain stores have had a bit of difficulty with the PST exemptions that have been attached in recent years. Stores have inadvertently charged PST for things like fire extinguishers, and remitted it to Victoria. Also gone are exemptions for over-the-counter medications, adult-sized clothes for bigger kids, caulking and insulation. B.C. residents can manage without these political sops, the main result of retaining provincial authority over sales taxes.

Letters

Council follows predictable path So, the mayor who had the opportunity to deny the developers motion, as predicted, approved it. Why are we not surprised. Mr. Ashton does not live in our community. What are we doing electing him to run our city? The vote was a three-three split among the councillors, and he had the opportunity to do the right thing by supporting the no vote. But you see it isn’t his neighbourhood, and this in spite of the fact that the city planning department recommended the application be denied. As I said before, the people who live on Haynes Street and surrounding area do not want a highrise in their neighbourhood but we don’t count, our opinion doesn’t matter. The developer is more important. He needs to get his pound of flesh, and with the help of councillors Jakubeit, Albas, Sentes and the mayor he got it, as predicted in my last letter. The Official Community Plan has been “official-

Party an eye-opener

I had the opportunity to attend a free community event with my two teenage daughters several weeks ago. The event was called, ‘Reality Party’ where a homeowner opened their private home for local student actors to re-enact what drinking parties in today’s society look like. It broke my heart to watch these vulnerable teen actors drink themselves to a point of vomiting on the hardwood floors, seduce one another with readily available drugs, and get arrested and cuffed by local RCMP officers during the fighting brawl. This all in the name of ‘having a good time.’ (The teen who overdosed was revived thanks to the Okanagan Priority Trauma One Team.) Huge thanks to the Student Actors, Pathways Addictions Resource Centre, the home owners, School District 67, Okanagan RCMP, Community Foundation of the South Okanagan, Business Gives Back, Okanagan Fest of Ale Society and the Kinette Club of Penticton for allowing this free community event to take place. As parents we do have the power to implement change in the lives of our young people. Brenda Roxanne Peters Kaleden

A traffic solution

Reading the article, “Council deadlocked on study,” (Western News, May 12) I would like to make a suggestion on what could be done on Government. I think that it should be four lanes. The outside lane could allow parking from 6:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. During the day it should be a traffic/bike lane. This could solve a lot of traffic problems and still allow bikers a lane to bike in. The outside lane, all traffic would have to yield to any bikes in that lane. All other times it would allow traffic to move smoother. It’s an idea that can be tinkered with, and with proper signs people should have little problems understanding how it works. Do we really need to waste more taxpayer’s money on studies? To have someone say something we already know? I think those in council should

ly” changed once again to suit the developer (surprise, surprise). The precedent has been set, your neighbourhood could be next and the developers are clapping their hands. They will not rest until the entire city is littered with half-empty highrises crowding us (single family homes) out. As I said before, livability is not a priority when you don’t live in the neighbourhood. I encourage all registered voters of Penticton to throw these people out of office come the next election. Let’s install people who think livability and community first. Let’s have a community plan that can only be changed under dire circumstances. Let’s legislate that members of council and the mayor must actually live in the city of Penticton. Mr. Litke, Mr. Vassilaki, and Mr. Pearce are to be commended for standing up for us. The Haynes Street neighbourhood thanks you. Michael Taenzer Penticton

have to sit on Government Street during peak hours and then decide what to do instead of paying someone else. If they keep talking about their debt, after all they are the ones spending the money, then stop wasting money. Maybe they should have to take the time themselves and work with the citizens of Penticton to find solutions instead of outsourcing at the expense of Penticton residents. Some will notice that I am making the point of city council spending your money. Improving Government Street is good spending as most in Penticton would benefit. Pool expansion is not a good thing at this time with the debt load city council have put the residents of Penticton in. But oh well, too late now eh. South Main Street is another street that should be looked at. Maybe no changes at this time but there should be a solution in place for when the time comes, that would save us money as well. Maybe council should talk to residents on South Main and ask them for ideas. Pay me and I will do it for you, sure would be cheaper and you would keep the money local or is that just silly. David Mercier Penticton

Disappointed by turnout

I, and a number of shipmates were dismayed and disappointed at the very poor turnout to our Battle of Atlantic Memorial Service on May 2. Roughly 35 members of our Naval Veterans Association and family, but only seven plus two young children of John Q Public, were in attendance. We, who were fortunate to have survived that five-year struggle, strongly feel that the memory of lost shipmates, school chums and pals of all services involved, not overlooking also the civilians, nurses, war-brides and child evacuees that were lost at sea in transit earned and richly deserves a more responsive turnout. Next year, we must do better. M. Cavendish Penticton Naval Veteran’s Assoc.

Don’t miss festival

As a senior and volunteer since

the beginning of the children’s festival (May 27-29), I have always enjoyed the entertainment it provided. This is entertainment at its best and at a fraction of the cost one would pay if attending any of the entertainers at other venues. The choice of entertainment is unbelievable and many of us will remember the antics of Charlotte Diamond when we watched with children and or grandchildren over the past many years. This year we will be able to watch the National Acrobats of Taiwan, Circus Incognitus from San Diego and the hilarious musical comedian Michel Lauziere from Montreal. According to the program we also will be able to see brilliant Brazilian dance and music. This truly is entertainment at its best, and for all ages. They have plenty of seating and most of the acts are under cover. Gather up your friends, kids or grandkids and make sure not to miss this great opportunity to see world class entertainment at affordable prices. See you in the Park. Gus Boersma Long time volunteer at the Children’s’ Festival

City assets have depreciated by $91 million according to Penticton’s treasurer Doug Leahy. The $91 million figure, he said, calculated by independent auditors, is really just the estimated overall cost of the depreciation of all of the assets the city owns: everything from facilities, vehicles and equipment to road, water, sewer and power infrastructure. Basically, if all the city’s assets were a really big car (we’ll let council speculate on which brand) that cost taxpayers $379 million

Everything is slowly but surely falling apart. And the Chartered Accountants Association of Canada wants you to know that in Penticton as of Dec. 31, 2009 the steady hand of time has decayed the city’s assets by roughly $91 million. Would you like to pay for that now or later? The answer is probably closer to some of it now but most of it later,

then $91 million is the amount of money the car has lost in value since the city drove it off the lot. In years to come, the auditors estimate, the car (or city assets) will depreciate about $10 million in value annually. Despite spending money on new rims or a paint job, you can’t magically make a car return to being brand new. So, what most people do is spend some money servicing their car to get the most useful life out of it and then when it is time to get another car, they buy one either by using money they have saved up or by borrowing money. Currently, Leahy said, the city utilizes both kinds of purchasing strategies when it comes to replacing assets it can’t afford to buy outright. “That is what our equipment replacement

fund is for,” he said. “It is really a depreciation fund.” If staff determined that a item is going to last 12 years, Leahy explained, then the city divides the cost of replacing the item by 12 years, making sure to put that amount of money into the replacement fund every year. The city, he said, does not do this for large items, like facilities, because it would cost lots of money. Take the community centre, for instance. Government, of all levels, is currently spending over $23 million to renovate the building, which should have a useful life of about 20 to 30 years. That means that if Penticton wants to keep the new centre from adding to the $91 million depreciation figure, council would have to sock away about another $1 million a year, beyond

what it will spend on capital and operating costs. Basically, today’s taxpayer would have to pay for the building twice. The good news, however, is that the issue isn’t really an issue at all, said Leahy, because council can decide to recognize and then essentially ignore its annual depreciation estimates, as long as it simply reports them. The only reason the city’s auditors had to calculate the depreciation estimate is because provincial government made them after the accountants association pointed out that private-sector companies were doing it while municipalities were not. But private-companies were only doing it because they could save money on their income taxes by writing off the depreciation. And municipalities do not pay income taxes.

WAL MART is Celebrating Safety

photo submitted

Part of the Big Dipper with Infusion behind it and the Pepsi Max Big One dwarďŹ ng both of the rides at the amusement park Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, Britain.

Theme park thrills in the U.K. Bold, brash and beautiful, Blackpool is Britain’s playground by the sea. It’s Britain’s most popular seaside resort packed with wall to wall family entertainment. Revel in seven miles of sand, the Pleasure Beach with its hair-raising rides and roller coasters and the promenade and piers with their slots, shows, buzzing bars and restaurants. Just a short hop from Manchester, Liverpool and Scotland, Blackpool serves up high energy entertainment whatever the weather. If the sights and smells of summer include trudging through an amusement park then one of the top attractions should be Pleasure

Beach Resort with over 125 rides and attractions plus spectacular shows. There’s everything from thrilling whiteknuckle rides - the Pepsi Max Big One, Grand National to leisurely cruises around the River Caves and Alice’s Wonderland. For the kids - Beaver Creek Theme Park, home to Bradley Beaver and his very own Log Flume amongst many other child friendly rides. Or take a ride on Infusion, the latest roller coaster added to the park. Prepare for an exhilarating infusion of the elements as you soar to amazing heights and be taken through a whirlwind water experience to amaze and astound the

senses. Five incredible loops plus a double line twist await thrill seekers on the suspended looping coaster. Also joining the line up is Adventure Golf located outside of Pleasure Beach. This 12-hole state-of-the-art course features family friendly layout with beginners and expert obstacles to negotiate. The park opens for seven days a week from June to October and remains open on a limited schedule through the winter months. There are two ways to enjoy Pleasure Beach. Visitors can purchase an unlimited ride wristband, which is $61.67 for a two day

adult (12 and over) pass or $50.12 for a two day youth/senior (2-11/65 or over) pass. A Pleasure Beach Pass ($7.70) includes entry to the park and some shows, upgrade to the wristband is available inside the park or individual ride passes can be purchased. Visitors can conveniently stay at the park in the Big Blue Hotel which offers rooms and luxury suites. Signature family rooms include a separate funky children’s sleeping area with TV’s and game consoles available for hire.

Mishras return to Cawston Hall Mishra family has been performing classical Indian Sitar music for 11 generations Western News Staff

When they gave their last concert in Cawston, three years ago, the Mishras were already almost a tradition in the Lower Similkameen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In three previous visits, The Mishras had won the hearts of the local audiences,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Cursons, adding that many area residents got to enjoy the strains of the classical Indian sitar, the rapid-fire tabla drums and the melodious vocals for the first time in live concert. The Mishras are father and son sitar masters from Benares, India. Pandit Shivnath Mishra and son Deobrat Mishra travel the world for part of the year touring and performing indian classical music. They will be performing at the Cawston Hall on June 6, inviting the audience into the world of the sitar music, continuing a tradition that has extended through 11 generations of their family. Tickets for the concert are $15 at the doors, which open at 7:30 p.m. The concert itself begins at 8 p.m. The sitar itself is a technical wonder, Cursons said, describing it as an ancient precursor of the modern guitar.

SITAR PLAYER Deobrat Mishra, along with other members of his musical family, will be perfroming in Cawston Hall on June 6, their ďŹ rst performance in the area since 2007.

India, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the 1960s that the sitar was popularized in North America, when Ravi Shankar introduced it to western audiences â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even the Beatles and the Rolling Stones adopted the instrument in some of their works. Cursons describes father Pandit as a solemn and selfpossessed master while Deobrat, his son, exudes high spirits and a mischievous streak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These traits in each are wonderfully expressed in the emotionality of their music,â&#x20AC;? said Cursons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their deep regard for one another as father and son, master and student, is always plain.â&#x20AC;? Very early this century,

The Mishra family had begun travelling from Benares, India to California and up through Oregon to British Columbia in the company of their American tabla player, Marco Zonka from San Diego and road manager, Felicity Gerwin from Winlaw, B.C. The present tour features a new generation of the Mishra family. Young Prashant Mishra is the tabla player and another of the elder Panditâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students will accompany the group. In recent years, Deobrat has made an annual journey to Nelson, where he conducts a music academy in sitar, tabla, vocals and the classical Indian music tradition.

News City pedals bike lane review BRUCE WALKINSHAW Western News Staff

With Bike to Work Week beginning next Monday, Penticton council has directed city staff to review the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current cycling network. The study, proposed by bike advocate Coun. Andrew Jakubeit, will look at the potential for new or alternate cycling routes, protected bike lanes and tying the network into regional trail systems. In pushing for the study, Jakubeit said that providing a cycling network that is safe and connects key community points of interest and village nodes is essential for our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, vibrancy and progression towards a healthy, sustainable and livable community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OK College will have 800-plus students living in our community and Pentictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate and geography lends

well for the utilization of an improved cycling network benefiting both our residents and tourists alike,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not really capitalizing on the opportunity that sits in front of us. Especially with the climate and the way the city is laid out we really could introduce cycling and that could take off.â&#x20AC;? Jakubeit noted that last year the city held a town hall meeting with the cycling community before hiring transportation planning consultant Richard Drdul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He told us how about two thirds of Penticton residents have a bike in the backyard or are interested in the healthy benefits (of bicycling) but do not ride because they are scared of cars racing by them and drivers not paying attention,â&#x20AC;? said Jakubeit. Create safe cycling routes using buffered protected bike lanes or

separated trails, said Jakubeit, and more of Pentictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;interested but concernedâ&#x20AC;? potential riders will use their bikes to get around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until we create some safe routes, you are always only catering to that seven per cent of bike users who are the spandex guys who ride anyway,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You look at New York and you look at Vancouver, they are major metropolitan centres that have removed roadway away from the automobile and added more protected bike lanes and yet the automobile still survived while rider-ship has increased.â&#x20AC;? Jakubeit said that in order to create a proper bike network, the city needs to have a longterm plan in order to coordinate with the overall development of the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a five or 10 year goal then whatever development goes

up on that street, or any other street, we bear in mind that we are going to do something cycling related on the streets so we are going to require a setback or we are going to require the developer to put in something else,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just fly willy-nilly here and not have some sort of longrange planning to being more a sustainable, livable community.â&#x20AC;?

News Animal rabies warning in B.C. JORDEN DIXON Western News Staff

You can contract it from a stinging bite or a simple scratch. Crawling through your nerves, rabies reaches your spinal chord then climbs up into your brain. You won’t know for two to eight weeks whether something is wrong. You feel fearful, agitated and excited, but by this point it’s to late. “It’s virtually always fatal if the disease symp-

toms start,” said Ken Cooper, senior environmental health specialist for the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. “It’s a deadly disease.” Sounds frightening, but don’t worry — only two rabies-related deaths in humans have occurred over the last 25 years in B.C., one in 1985 and another in 2003. “Human rabies is very rare in North America,” Cooper added. “But around the world it is a

YARD WORK MADE EASY

serious disease. It kills in excess of 55,000 people a year.” Most of these deaths are in Asia and Africa where it is carried mostly by dogs. Cooper said it’s more common there because they don’t have the resources to fight it as it has been in North America. In 2009 there were 167 reports of possible exposure to animal rabies in B.C. and 143 of those reported were vaccinated. So far, in 2010, there have been 20 possible exposures reported. “In B.C. the only animal we have identified so far as being a reservoir for rabies is bats,” Cooper said. Between four to eight per cent of bats that come into contact with humans and are tested from B.C. come back positive for the rabies virus.

“It’s not an accurate representation of the overall bat population,” said Cooper. ���If you took all the bats in B.C. less than one per cent might have rabies.” With the warmer spring and summer months, more people are outside, increasing the risk of coming into contact with bats. The number one precaution is to avoid contact with both live and dead bats. Bat-proofing your home or cabin by closing all doors and windows and ensuring that screens and vents are adequate is also important. If you do have a live bat in a room of your home, open the window and close interior doors until the bat leaves. If a situation occurs where bats have inhabited your home or cabin, seek professional bat-control advice by contacting a wildlife specialist or pest control. If you stumble upon an area that bats are inhabiting, Cooper recommends to “just leave the area” and “under no circumstances touch the bats.” In the case that you do come into contact with a bat and suffer a bite or scratch “wash out the wound really well with soap and water, and flush the wound with water under pressure for at least five minutes,” Cooper said. “Then they should report it to their doctor so they can be assessed for risk.” Despite the fact that a small percentage of bats carry the rabies virus, they are crucial to the environment, as they control insect populations. “Normally they’re expert flyers and they don’t come into contact with humans or animals, unless there is something wrong with them.”

News Meadowlark more popular than ever STEVE KIDD Western News Staff

After 13 years of operation, you might think the Meadowlark Festival had reached its peak, but if you look at the success of this year’s festival, it appears it’s still growing. “We’ve still got to evaluate — the festival only finished yesterday — but early signs are that ticket sales are up from last year, which is fantastic,” said Anita Dunford, the Meadowlark Festival Coordinator for the Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Alliance. “I think there is potential for the festival to grow even further, it’s certainly not losing any momentum in terms of its popularity from the people that want to visit,” she continued. Dunford said support from the community is an essential factor in the festival’s success. Margaret Kitson has been making

her Naramata property available to the festival for the last three years as a lunch stopover on one of the birding tours after naturalist Dick Cannings asked her to join in. “The awareness of the history and the wildlife here combined with Dick’s expertise just makes it a great time,” she said, adding that she believes in the goals of the OSCA. “It’s important to keep this space natural, as you can see by looking at our property.” “I think hats off must go to the community because they make it happen by pulling together to help,” said Dunford. Without volunteers like Kitson, the tour guides, sponsors and other contributors, Dunston added, the festival couldn’t happen. The Meadowlark Festival is held each May, with the money raised through the annual festival helping OSCA continue with its

environmental education and outreach programs. Dunford said word continues to spread about the South Okanagan celebration, which offered 85 events over five days this year. People are still recommending the festival to friends and family and

even farther afield, she said, with people even flying in from Mexico and other countries to take part. “It is one of our key objectives is to increase its popularity outside the area as well, which in turn will help tourism and the local economy

by bringing in more visitors,” she said, emphazing that they are working hard to promote awareness of the festival across Canada. “The word is still spreading and the festival is looking like it’s going to grow, which is fantastic for the area.”

GETTING A piggy back ride, a collision occured with a Delta United player focussed on the ball during a match against the South Okanagan in the 49th annual Pacific Western Breweries May Soccer Classic. South Okanagan lost the final to Chile De Estrella 2-1 on Monday.

Chili De Estrella three-peat EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Western News Staff

Supporters of Chile De Estrella spilled onto the sidelines at King’s Park during the 49th Pacific Western Breweries May Classic Monday afternoon. The group of two-dozen, including some resting Chilean players, celebrated the 2-1 goal against the South Okanagan Men’s League team, which helped them three-peat. “It was awesome,” said Chile De Estrella’s Tarek Yassin. “Nice play, nice set up. We deserve it.” Yassin, who is enjoying his first year with Chile De Estrella, was thrilled to help clinch the championship. Yassin said Chile played pretty good but felt they were better in their match against the under-21 Penticton Pinnacles. Both teams battled to a scoreless tie, which Chile won 1-0 on penalty kicks. Some, including the Chilean team, felt that game should have been the final for the men’s side. “I would have liked us to pick up the tempo a little bit in the first half,” added Yassin. “We won and that’s all that matters.” Chile De Estrella led 1-0 going into the second half but South Okanagan’s Paul Raposo tied up the game. Before the midway mark of the final half, Chile De Estrella collected the winning marker as they set the play

Making the matchup interesting was the aggressive play. Neither side held back, which led to many words being exchanged and a few shoving matches. Near the end, a fight nearly broke out as the official was reluctant to pull out the yellow card to control the game. “It’s tough. You have to keep your composure,” said Yassin. “We got a red card at the end there. You can’t let that stuff get under your skin.” Josh Fink of the South Okanagan Men’s League said even though the game had its physical play, he said it was fair. “It was a bit chippy but there was no intent to injure,” he added. He enjoyed playing against Chile and said they were happy to make it as far as they did. As for the chances to get the tying goal,

Fink said they weren’t able to make that final pass. Raposo, South Okanagan’s lone scorer, had deflected a shot off the post that left many observers wondering how they didn’t score. Fink said what would have helped them win this game was if they had more time to play together. The team was thrown together prior to the weekend. “It will only get better from here,” he said. On the women’s side, the Penticton Soccer Club defeated the South Okanagan 3-0 to win the tournament. Coach David Fink said the group played well and finished the weekend 3-0-1. “It was a lot of fun,” he said. “Everybody seemed to play strong. A very skilled bunch. It was nice to finally win.” Earning the MVP honours Sousa, a former Penticton Pinnacle, playing for Chile De Estrella and Joey Monroe of Penticton was the scoring champion. The Best Defender in the tournament was Charlie Farnelli from the South Okanagan. Tournament organizer Charlie Goeckel felt the weekend was excellent and feels this will lead into a strong return for next year when it will be the 50th edition. “Everything went perfect,” said Goeckel.

Kerner of Pritchard in the tie down roping event during the 72nd annual Keremeos Elks Rodeo held May 22 to 24.

Sporting a new look (jackets and shorts), the SOMBA Tigers went 3-1 against the Tri City Indians and Chilliwack Cougars. After defeating the Cougars 11-7 in Game 1, the Cougars bounced back with a 13-6 win. The Cougars scored seven times in the first inning. The Tigers didn’t roll over as they showed composure and clawed back slowly. In the fifth inning the Tigers got as close as two runs but left two runners stranded on base. Nolan Benedetti had kept the Cougars’ bats quiet and gave the Tigers a chance to get back in. The Cougars didn’t figure Benedetti out until the seventh when they added six more runs and killed any chance of a comeback. Against the Indians, the Tigers won 5-2 and

4-0. In the final game, Ryohei Ito pitched a gem going six innings allowing three hits, collecting three strikeouts and no earned runs. The Tigers had better luck at the plate as they scored twice in the first inning. In the opening game, the Tigers went with Kyle Peters on the mound. Peters went 7 2/3 innings allowing two earned runs, eight strikeouts and one hit in the 5-2 win. In four of the five innings, the Tigers had multiple runners on base but couldn’t score. In the sixth they managed to get two runs. It took extra innings to get a winner as the Tigers scored three times in the eighth and Ito came in to shut the door. The Tigers are now 4-4 on the road and improved to a 10-4 record and sit third in B.C Minor Baseball’s midget AAA standings.
