Promoter silences Sound of Summer KRISTI PATTON

Western News Staff

It is the sound of disappointment for many music fans as a two-day festival scheduled to take place this weekend has been cancelled. Sound of Summer music festival director Landon Hamilton said he was extremely determined to overcome every hurdle that came his way, but couldn’t leap over the restraints put on the event to relocate to private land owned by a Penticton Indian Band member. In July, Penticton council denied the permit to hold the festival in Okanagan Lake Park after hearing concerns from RCMP Insp. Brad Haugli that the event’s organizers had not addressed safety issues in a satisfactory and timely manner. Within the week festival organizers, Get Loud Entertainment, struck a deal to hold the event next to Skaha Meadows Golf Course on Old Airport Road, despite disapproval from the PIB council. Hamilton said there was not enough time to move the event which headlined Flo Rida

and Lupe Fiasco. “We strongly appreciate and thank them for stepping up to the plate and supporting our event. However ideal the new location is, there simply isn’t enough time to prepare the festival grounds for execution,” said Hamilton in a press release. Hamilton and Get Loud Entertainment, who did not respond to requests for an interview, expressed frustration in a press release Tuesday stating the city originally approved the event then withdrew the approval forcing the show to relocate to a new venue. During last week’s Peach Festival, Okanagan Lake Park hosted Canadian rock band Trooper which entertained an estimated 7,500 people. Sound of Summer’s estimated 5,000 to 6,500 people would be in attendance at their music event in the same park. Haugli explained Peachfest has been around for years with well experienced people planning it. “Trooper is a great band, a good familyorientated band that everyone can enjoy. I wouldn’t say that about all the acts that planned

to come for Sound of Summer. They are more of a licensed bar crowd with rave-type disc jockeys coming and some of the music has profanities in it. For an outdoor event and some of the type of people it would draw, for example gang-related individuals coming to enjoy this event, caused me concern,” said Haugli. Police had arranged to augment their detachment with six gang task force officers from the Lower Mainland and seven general duty officers to be visible in the community of the Penticton Indian Band and post-event around licensed establishments in Penticton. Haugli said the devil was in the details concerning the promoters application with the city, and the details were vague. In a letter Haugli submitted to both the City of Penticton and Penticton Indian Band he noted there were no attempts by the promoters to contact neighbours to Okanagan Lake Park and he received written non-support from the Lakeside Resort management who identified several concerns. Haugli said the event was disclosed months ago but the promoter did

not initiate direct contact or respond to requests from his office for discussion and development of the safety management plan. According to Haugli, representatives hired by the promoter from Penticton Security told the inspector they didn’t believe Okanagan Lake Park is a suitable venue. Another issue RCMP had was that the music lineup was only revealed to them on July 2 and it was determined that the music genres were not suitable for all ages. At least one local business has expressed disappointment about the event’s cancellation. “We are all really disappointed because of the way the economy is doing and businesses are suffering. This event drew hope to everybody that we would have some business,” said Courtesy Taxi owner Happy Kahlon. “We are frustrated and disappointed with this council’s decision. There is always a slow time between Ironman and Peachfest and we were happy that Sound of Summer would bring some business because there is no events happening this week.”

Committee aims to land Alberta service MARK BRETT

Western News Staff

A revamped city committee to put Penticton Regional Airport on the map for more travellers is up and running. The 12-member group chaired by Judy Poole has put together a comprehensive survey and they hope to deliver the results to Air Canada executives as soon as next month. “It’s just all about numbers to them (Air Canada) and we’re going to try and give them some sense of what we’re doing here and why we need these flights,” said Poole, who also chaired the previous committee. “Our thing is first and foremost to get people coming in and out of the airport; get some flights that we need to Calgary and Edmonton.” The main objective of the survey is to find out who is flying out of Penticton and who is flying out of Kelowna and why. “What we want to say to Air Canada is there’s a whole bunch of people using the airport in Kelowna and they’re not flying with you, and if we can bring them back here they will fly with you,” said the committee chair. “I think what they care about is making money, and if we can show them that what we’re asking them to

do will be profitable, I think we may get somewhere with it. “When we talked to Air Canada before it’s been from the Penticton perspective, but there’s a heck of a lot growth in the rest of the South

Okanagan.” In particular she pointed to residential and other developments in Oliver and Osoyoos which bring in many people from Alberta on a regular basis.

Poole also believes by narrowing the committee’s focus it will be much more effective in accomplishing its objectives. “We have really only two goals and that is to increase utilization of

the airport — so market it to travellers — and increase flights in and out of the airport with the specific goal of trying to get flights to the east, either Calgary or Edmonton or both, that’s it,” she said. “This is not a committee that’s just going to sit around and talk about what they’re going to do; we’re going to do it.” The current survey targets the business and industrial sectors of the communities but not the travelling public at this stage. Air Canada at one time did offer service from Penticton to Alberta but suspended it due to low passenger volume in 2004. Since then two other carriers, QuikAir and more recently Pacific Coastal, tried unsuccessfully to make a go of the route. According to Poole, due to the current economic climate the committee feels it will have a much better chance of convincing Air Canada to resume flights east than attracting a new company. “The first step is to talk to the guys that are already here, that’s certainly the simplest approach to give them first kick at the cat,” she said. “Given the world economies and the credit crunch, it would be difficult (to find another airline) but we will do whatever has to be done.” The committee is scheduled to meet again Monday.

High-risk offender’s release prompts police advisory KRISTI PATTON Western News Staff

A high-risk sex offender has moved to Okanagan Falls, prompting RCMP to issue a safety notification for sex-trade workers. Michael Samoleski was released from custody on Aug. 5 after completing a six-year sentence for sexual assault with a weapon, forcible confinement and uttering threats on a sex-trade worker in Saskatchewan. The offence Samoleski was found guilty of occurred in 2006. He must abide by several conditions including to keep the peace and be of good behaviour, report all sexual relationships and friendships with women to probation, not to possess, own or carry any weapon, not to possess any knives except for the immediate preparation and consumption of food, not to consume or possess any con-

trolled substance, not to be outside his residence between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. except for employment purposes, not to be in contact with any sextrade workers or negotiate for sexual services, not to engage in sexual services for money or Samoleski other consideration and not to frequent areas where sex-trade workers are known to work. “We have put posters up around Orchard Avenue, Martin Street, the soup kitchen and that area around there. To protect those people that may be in that industry and to make sure they are aware of him so if any conditions are being breached they know to report to us,” said Sgt. Rick Dellebuur.

RCMP put out a narrow cast notification after corrections personnel dealing with Samoleski applied for it through the court. Doing so put a number of different conditions on Samoleski so he can be monitored. “In this case there is an individual who has served six years, his full term, for the incident in 2006 against a sex trade worker. While he was incarcerated and after he is released corrections and behavioural sciences believed, and as such took appropriate action, that he is of high risk to reoffend violently and at medium risk to reoffend sexually,” said Insp. Brad Haugli. “How they get to that risk level is unknown to me, but what they did then was seek a court order because they fear for a future offence to take place.” Haugli said RCMP could only give out posters to those believed to be involved in the sex trade industry, put them up in the area

where they know of those in the sex trade to be working and to hand them to victim services who may have contact with those in the sex trade industry. What those people do with the posters, for example post them up in other communities or areas, has nothing to do with the RCMP. Samoleski is described as a 42-year-old Caucasian male, six-feet tall, 200 pounds, with brown eyes and bald head. RCMP also noted he has numerous tattoos including a panther on his chest, flames on his head, a barbarian and grim reaper on his calves, girl on his left and right thigh, and an eagle, skull and heart with ribbons on his arms. Should members of the public note any suspicious behaviour, including but not limited to a breach of these conditions, involving Samoleski they are asked to contact RCMP at 250-492-4300 or your local police services.

There are jokes that could be made about Feast of Fields being a growing concern but, in fact, it is growing in many ways. The first Okanagan Feast of Fields happened in 2009, with 20 chefs and wineries participating in preparing food for 400 guests. That’s a large operation in itself, but for the 2011 version, organizers have 29 chefs lined up, each paired with a local winery or brewery. This year’s event, which happens on Aug. 21, will be held on the grounds of a Naramata winery: Van Westen Vineyards and Orchards, a family-owned operation with a 50-year history. The Van Westen family has been farming for four generations, according to organizers, and the host farm has a stunning view across Okanagan Lake. Guests will sample the region’s creations amongst the vineyards and under the shade of the 20-year-old Lapin cherry trees. “We want to move it around each year,” said event co-ordinator Rhys Pender, adding that there were many factors going into selecting an appropriate location. “We had to think about fencing and access, lots of logistics.” All that planning is because they are expecting 500 guests this year. However, perhaps expecting isn’t the best word; 450 of the 500 tickets are already sold, with a week to go before the actual event. It’s an event that draws from a wide spectrum, according to Pender. While many of the guests are from the South Okanagan, it

also draws many tourists, both those that were already planning to be in town and those who come specifically for the event. “It is like a wandering 29-course tasting menu featuring everything that is great about the Okanagan and Similkameen regions,” said Pender. “It’s pretty hard to get access to that kind of cooking all in one place.” While the big draw is the food and beverages, the purpose of the event is to raise money for FarmFolkCityFolk, an organization that promotes better interaction between consumers and the people that grow and produce the food they eat. Feast of Fields highlights the strong connections between farmer

and chef, and highlights producers of Okanagan wine, beer and artisanal food products. “It goes for a good cause,” said Pender, “The purpose is to get people to realize where their food comes from. Most of the participating chefs will work with a local farmer and showcase their product in the food they are preparing.” FarmFolkCityFolk uses proceeds to fund their food security work throughout the province as well as Okanagan-based projects. This year, proceeds from Okanagan Feast are being used to bring a BC Seeds seed saving workshop to the Okanagan region. More information, along with tickets sales, is available online at

Since water restrictions began being enforced in 2004, the focus on water use has shifted to automatic irrigation timer reprogramming and drought tolerant landscaping options. These improvements require an adjustment period, however, the trend shows Pentictonites try harder and value water. Peak day – the 24 hr period with the highest consumption – for 2011 is the lowest on record at 38 million litres.

Of course, with our wet July, one expects such results; however, an evaluation of past water demand indicates that regardless of rainfall or our semi-arid climate, Peak Day was skyrocketing. Congratulations Penticton on paying attention by adjusting your irrigation timers; watering effectively as well as efficiently. Remember: Restrictions in effect until August 31. Every Drop Counts!

Police capture wanted man Western News Staff

A man with a Canadawide warrant for his arrest was captured by Penticton RCMP, but not without a struggle. The RCMP Drug Task Force received information on July 30 that 22-year-old Jesse John McKnight was in Penticton. The man was wanted for parole violation and had warrants for his arrests stemming from a police pursuit in the Twin Lakes area that occurred a week earlier. RCMP, with assistance from general duty officers and the police dog section, stopped the vehicle around 7 p.m. on Highway 97 near Pyramid Park turnoff. Cpl. Brad Myhre said police blocked the vehicle in and McKnight, who was in the rear passenger seat, attempted to flee. “The female driver put the vehicle in gear and attempted to drive away. The vehicle windows were smashed out and force was utilized on both driver and the wanted male. The male with warrants resisted violently and attempted to jump into the driver seat of the vehicle,” said Myhre.

“After a long struggle with the officers he was eventually taken into custody and transported to Penticton cells.” McKnight was remanded in custody and now faces new charges of resisting arrest, possession of a prohibited weapon, possession of a prohibited weapon while under a prohibition order and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. RCMP said charges of dangerous driving are being requested for the female involved in the incident. In an unrelated incident, Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers arrested three people on Aug. 3 for trafficking crystal meth. Myhre said the trio were found in a vehicle in a hotel parking lot on Eckhardt Avenue. One of the three were later released with no charges while Penticton residents Philip Jamieson, 42, and Eva Thompson, 41, both face charges of possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking and breaches of a court order. Myhre said both were already out on bail for several previous charges including possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.

Fight over HST now just a waiting game


ith the deadline now passed for returning HST referendum ballots, anticipation is building for the result. It’s almost like betting on a horse race then waiting for the race to be run. Except there will be no big winners and few big losers after the votes are tallied. Much time and resources have been spent promoting the benefits (vote ‘no’) and downfalls (vote ‘yes’) of the harmonized sales tax. To the government’s credit, it did a good job spelling out the scenarios for taxpayers, both of keeping the HST and alternatively, going back to the PST-GST combination. The Fight HST camp, on the other hand, has done virtually nothing to acknowledge any positive aspects of the now year-old sales tax system. That one-sided vision was a disservice and only contributed to the confusion over the real differences between the two taxing strategies. Where the Liberals have been attempting to simplify the debate, Bill Vander Zalm and company have been doing their best to muddy the facts and appeal more to people’s hearts than their heads. Where that left voters who didn’t mail or drop off their HST referendum ballot was, largely, in the dark and, in many cases, likely led to avoiding a vote altogether. And that is unfortunate given that this vote will directly impact every resident in the province daily. Which way will the referendum go? It seems those convinced the HST is a bad idea are sure it’ll be defeated. HST supporters tend to be a lot more uncertain of the result, yet hopeful. Regardless, no one need fear backing the wrong horse. The sun will still come up, government will continue to operate and those prone to doing so will eventually find something else to complain about.

The rise of the ‘English Spring’

don’t call it rioting, I call it an insurrection of the masses of the people. It is happening in Syria, it is happening in Clapham, it’s happening in Liverpool, it’s happening in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, and that is the nature of the historical moment,” said Darcus Howe, a black British journalist, in an interview with BBC television on Tuesday. The revolution has finally arrived: after the “Arab Spring”, here comes the “English Spring”. With London in flames, thousands dead, and the British government trembling before a full-scale insurrection of the masses, the collapse of the entire capitalist order is only moments away. As the Tunisian revolution led to the overthrow of Mubarak in Egypt and then to a non-violent revolutionary movement in Syria, so the overthrow of the British government will quickly lead to the destruction of the U.S. government and the Chinese Communist regime. Wait a moment! This just in! London isn’t in flames after all. Some dozens of buildings have been burned in various residential parts of London, but none in the centre. Apart from the original demonstration outside a police station in the London suburb of Tottenham by relatives of a suspected drug dealer who was shot by police on Sunday, it’s opportunistic looters who have been out on the streets, not political protesters. In the inner London district of Camden Town, for example, the


social media on Monday night were full with rumours of local landmarks in flames. However, Tuesday morning revealed that a few phone shops in the high street had been looted overnight, and an iconic (but rather grubby) rock venue called the Electric Ballroom had been vandalized. Nothing else to report. We in the media love stories of death and destruction, but it turns out that there aren’t thousands of dead either. As of Wednesday, there had been only five deaths that might be linked to the turmoil: three people killed in Birmingham by a speeding car probably driven by looters, one man found shot dead in a car in London for unexplained reasons, and the drug dealer, Mark Duggan, whose death at the hands of the police unleashed these events. There are certainly questions to be answered about Duggan’s killing (it appears that the gun he was carrying was never fired), and further questions to be asked about the way that the police

dealt with his family afterwards. The demonstration outside Tottenham police station was genuinely political, and there are plausible claims that the police response was excessive. But after that, everything changed. On the second night, there was no rioting, in the sense of demonstrations with a political motive or goal. There was just looting, as disaffected youths from the under-class seized the opportunity to acquire a little property from the rest of the population and damage a lot more. They feel that they have been abandoned by the society, and they are right. Every post-industrial society has a large and growing minority of permanently unemployed or under-employed people who would once have grown up into the good working-class jobs that no longer exist. They are present in significant numbers in Britain and in France, in the United States and in Russia, even in Japan. It’s those bored and angry youths who are looting in England now. Some people want to impose an ethnic explanation on this phenomenon. They try to define the looting and violence as a response by underprivileged black youths in Britain (or by underprivileged Muslim youth in the 2005 and 2007 riots in France). But the truth is that rioting and looting have always been equal-opportunity activities in both countries. In the past 30 years of sporadic rioting and looting

in England, every outbreak has included a large, probably majority participation by young whites from the under-class. The same was true of France in 2005 and 2007, where the young “Muslim” rioters were quite happy to be accompanied by their white and Asian friends from the same tower blocks. For complex cultural reasons, the looters in England are disproportionately AfroCaribbean youths, but it is not a particularly racist society. Afro-Caribbeans come last in school performance in England, but the children of immigrants from Africa come first. Fifty per cent of second-generation AfroCaribbeans in England end up in inter-racial relationships — but often in relationships with people of the white under-class. No escape there. The real issue here is class — or to be more precise, the despair of the under-class. Less brutal and insulting behaviour towards the under-class by the police in normal times would reduce the level of resentment and the frequency of rioting and looting, but it wouldn’t stop it.

Deer deterrence takes more than a shot in the dark

It seems inevitable that in most situations involving interactions of wild animals and human society, the latter’s sense of proportion quickly gets lost and its sense of superiority and entitlement is displayed in all its self-absorbed nastiness. I speak of the current hysteria about ‘vicious deer’: in my lighter moments, I’m reminded of Monty Python’s classic ‘killer rabbit’ sketch. A few suggestions from a naturalist, not a biologist, who would appreciate some common sense applied to the situation, for the deer’s sake as much as for humans. Stop pretending that council members, and most members of the public, know much, if anything, about this matter, and pass it on to people versed in deer, and human, behaviour and how these can be employed to change the situation In line with the staff’s sensible suggestion, set up a committee to look into various ways to improve our interactions with wildlife in the city, but make sure that biologists and others with

Council off track

Re: Councillor itching to pull the trigger on deer plan. That seems to be the prevalent theme of Mr. Pearce: push, shove, to heck with it get the gun! What gives him the right to demand city staff to get a working report done? Get a life. I am not blind that deer are becoming an issue in the community — whatever threat value an individual places on it, is personal. We see our emergency rooms with hundreds of injuries treated as a result of cycling and pedestrian injuries within the city limits, and yes, there have even been deaths. When I hear things of this nature taking up council time, I can see that most have packed their pens and paper and are getting their plaques in order. It’s time for a big change. Mike Barrett Penticton

Deer raise concerns

I worry about the deer roaming about Penticton. I have often wondered why they aren’t trapped and moved to an appropriate rural environment — but not kill them. That is cruel and inhumane. I have had as many as seven deer in my front and back yard near the library. I very much enjoy them. On the other hand, I have had racoons attack my dogs and a coyote kill my cat. Yet we are not allowed to do anything about them. As stated in an earlier article in a local newspaper, we are supposed to get used to it. As to the cats roaming around town: To require cats to be indoor animals is also cruel. They are nocturnal animals. A stray cat that I have been feeding for five years recently died. I called him Jack, I miss him dearly. Maureen Blow Penticton

Deer deserve better

Re: the Aug. 3 letter, it seems Ted Wiltse should never own a gun. His plan to slaughter God’s innocent creatures is appalling. He should spend time with the First Nations to learn respect of nature’s innocent creatures. Where I grew up there was always deer on the road. People here just have to learn how to drive with nature in their surroundings, not slaughter everything with a heartbeat that might run on the road. I was brought up in the backwoods of Ontario where we hunted/ killed only for food. The one time (at 13 years old) I killed a black squirrel showing off my marksman skills to my cousin, and was caught by my father, resulted in squirrel for my supper ... lesson learned. Maybe Ted Wiltse has a real big freezer. Myself, I quite enjoy deer in my back yard ... much better than released convicts that Mike Pearce would have here if he had his own way. Seems the scum we have in Penticton lately is far more than we need or want without adding criminals of similar calibre into Penticton or near it.

direct experience of deer behaviour are on the committee and taken seriously. Have programs of deterrence looked into such as the Vancouver one for preventing unpleasant human-coyote interactions Meanwhile, tell people to get a grip and if a deer approaches them with an evil gleam in its eye: shout, wave your arms, charge it if you’re able, pick up a stick and brandish it, etc. In short, make it clear to the deer that you’re dangerous. Even with actual predators (including humans) such behaviour can be quite successful. Now that fawning season is over too, the main reason for such so-called aggressive behaviour of does is gone anyway. When humans defend their young, we call them heroes, but that’s another topic. Aside from the wild west attitude displayed, the killing Coun. Pearce advocates (Western News, Aug. 5) I suspect would be

Ted Wiltse is quick to also bash Garry Litke, who is the only person I have seen so far show a positive future for Penticton. I have asked him personally about the property at the old Nanaimo Hall for a cultural events centre, and that is property he wants reserved for financial better times. I am afraid to think what Mike Pearce would do with it. Garry Litke is a family man with young children and wants a future for not only his children, but all the residents of Penticton. He said to me his positive plans are reflected on when Penticton is in positive financial times. This is called positive future planning, not a spending spree that previous administrations have so enjoyed. So yes Ted Wiltse, taxpayers and residents need to consider carefully their vote in the upcoming election. I (and so many I know) will vote “Yes” to Garry Litke for whatever he runs for, and “Yes” to a positive future for Penticton. Clifford Martin Penticton

Deer control an urgent matter

I fully concur with Coun. Mike Pearce’s suggestion that deer within municipal limits must be controlled immediately as a matter of safety. There is no time for hesitation due to bureaucracy. The safety of everyone in the community is of paramount concern and considering the amount of sketchy encounters that have been reported, expediency on the matter is required. If live trapping and relocation proves to be ineffective, too slow in implementation, or not enough of a measure, then culling of the animals must take place. What concerns me is that if the animals need culling to reduce the local population in conjunction with other methods, what will happen to the carcass? I would think that due to these tough economic times it would be prudent to have the meat properly butchered and sent to food banks or other similar outlets to help alleviate the food crisis for struggling families. The cost of doing so might be less than trapping and relocation and or disposal of an unused carcass. People that normally can’t afford to buy meat could have it and it would aid in making sure Pentictonites stay safe at the same time. Chuck Stewart Penticton

Putting foot down

Well, I really put my foot in it this time. More often than not, if only I was more vigilant as I stepped from the car to the curb, or looked down while mowing the lawn. It never fails, unfortunately. If you haven’t experienced a “lip stand,” or noticed what’s under foot, then you probably rubber stamped throughout your living room carpets. It’s not immediately apparent what has taken place, especially if your an old fogie and your beak is malfunctioning.

futile. The adage that nature abhors a vacuum would very likely apply, and when habitat safe from the deer’s wild predators and with excellent food supply became vacant, other deer would quickly fill it. Mr. Pearce is quite right that the wild predators are in short supply, thanks to human decimation of their populations and habitat, but the solution is not to try to take over that very complex role. I suggest that a much more effective, long-term approach would be to institute a program of deterrence in the form of making life uncomfortable and scary for deer in the city (see the Vancouver coyote program). Much as I love to see wild creatures come through my rural area, I do whatever I can to make my immediate home unwelcome to those for whom such contact would be detrimental to us both.

So now comes the unpleasant task of clean up, with your blood pressure having soared to 80/100. If only some of you dog walkers could be a little more considerate and show more compassion toward your fellow human beings. While most offenders are a minority, they give the legitimate dog owners a bad name. If you are ever paying attention, you may have observed as any one particular event unfolds, the offenders will go through the motions of cleaning up after their pets. There are several categories to these slobs. My two favourite are the “illusionist.” They will go through all the motions of clean up. They bend over, reach down and appear to be picking up (with hand inserted in plastic bag), but only grab air some three centimetres from the actual target. This will give the observer the impression the dog owner has done his or her duty. Method Two involves the “crane neck.” The crane neck has an exaggerated long and flexible appendage. This enables them to survey a 360-degree field of view while his Great Dane is giving birth to a huge Douglas Fire Trunk on your lawn. They will look left, then right and a quick left again before proceeding with Fido to the next victim’s lawn. This one is identified as the “empty bagger.” This may seem humorous to some, but if you have been a recipient it’s no laughing matter, trust me. Andy Homan Penticton

Labour laws need change

Fear not Susan Upton, I have no anger management issues and I have never sought employment at any organization that entails joining a union since learning at a young age that union membership could be a degrading experience. Change in labour laws is long overdue. Unions need to be considerate of others and accept the proposition that other people have just as many rights as they do. The asinine tactic of striking and disrupting the lives of others who have no involvement or interest in union goals is something that defies logic. The world does not care about your needs. Closed-shop policies are also mind boggling. Membership should be a choice and not forced on prospective employees. Perhaps when unions face reality and modernize their thinking and approach, they may gain a little better acceptance from those who feel the need for unions has long passed their “best before date”.

Valuable services in jeopardy

A 36-hour telephone outage caused serious risk to those dependent on Lifeline. Lifeline is an electronic device that a person wears on their body when living alone.

It is connected to the phone line and can be deployed easily by pressing, alerting medical authorities they are in need of help. A few years ago a census determined Penticton had a population comprised of 44 per cent of residents that are over age 50. Many of these people have to come to rely on, and feel more secure wearing this device, either as a neck or wrist band. The only drawback to its efficient use could be another electronic device we take for granted everyday, whether it is a land line, a cordless or perhaps even a more sophisticated mechanism, and that is the telephone. The telephone connection to your residence must always be operational for the Lifeline to call for assistance and the responder to return your call to answer your alert. This caused great concern recently when only one line in an apartment building was inadvertently not reconnected. Luckily, the resident did not require the use of their Lifeline, but thanks to a caring good Samaritan neighbour the resident was found to be fine but had no phone connection for over 24 hours. The telephone provider did admit to the error of their ways but that would not have saved the person’s life if the Lifeline had been desperately needed. It would be helpful, and should be mandatory, that the telephone provider ascertain through their records which of their customers rely on the Lifeline and ensure they have priority service in the event of an outage. Going hand-in-hand with this issue is the recent loss of our fire dispatchers. The people knew the city, and even if the person requiring assistance did not know the specific address where they were but knew the name of the complex, apartment building, subdivision or other close landmark, the dispatcher would more than likely be invaluable to ensure help would be on the way. Let’s not lose any more valuable services in Penticton. Hazel Meadows Penticton

Meteor shower lights up the night STEVE KIDD Western News Staff

Every August, the night skies erupt in a blaze of light, and all over the world people find dark areas to sit and watch nature’s own fireworks show. It’s the Perseids meteor shower, an annual event also celebrated every year by the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory and local astronomers. Tonight, they’re inviting the public to the grounds of the observatory to watch the show, listen to expert speakers and maybe do a little bit of star-gazing through telescopes provided by members of the Royal Astronomical Society. Al Fischer, a member of the Royal Astronomical Society, explains that the meteors are the debris trail of the Swift-Tuttle comet, which orbits the sun once every 130 years. Every time it comes around it leaves a trail. This one has been going on for, they figure, about 2,000 years,” said Fischler, explaining that the meteors are actually very small. “They are mostly the size of grains of sand. But they are coming in at thousands of kilometres an hour.” The Perseids draw a lot of attention, not only because the shower of meteors is a regular event, but also the number and brightness of those that fall to earth as the planet moves through the debris

— Al Fischer trail. While the little ones leave bright streaks across the sky, up to 100 per hour at the peak, a few larger meteors can be even more dramatic. “That’s the pebble size coming in; if they are pebble-sized, they leave a fireball,” said Fischler. In addition to viewing the meteors, however, club members are also bringing along a few telescopes for visitors to view the night sky; though not the meteors, he explained. “If you happen to have the telescope pointed at the right place at the right time, you might see a streak of light across the field of view. We don’t observe meteors with a telescope,” said Fischler. Instead they’ll be aiming the telescopes at some spectacular stellar scenery, including double stars and star clusters. DRAO astronomers Ken Tapping, Roland Kothes and Ryan Ransom will also be on scene, giving a series of talks starting at 8:15 p.m. The gates open at 7:30 p.m. For directions to the observatory at White Lake, visit or call 250497-2300.

It’s only been around for a few years, but in that short time the Aboriginal Cultural Village has become a deeply-rooted feature of Penticton’s Peach Festival. “It started on that main stage four years ago, when I was asked to co-ordinate an opening ceremony honouring the Okanagan Territory,” said Kym Gouchie, a First Nations performer and Peachfest director. “I said, ‘How about not just the opening ceremony, how about an opening evening of aboriginal entertainment?’” From that start, grew the Aboriginal Cultural Village, which is now ensconced in Gyro Park and featured two days of entertainment this year, with two dozen aboriginal artists on the main stage as well as a powwow. Gouchie said that because of the work she does in the community with youth, music and culture, many of the participants are drawn from her wide circle of contacts. “Pretty much 90 per cent of the people that were on the stage or helping out are people that I know personally,” she said. “It really is a community collaboration.” And being tied in with Peachfest, Gouchie said the event effects both the community and the nation, helping

to undo negative stereotypes about aboriginal peoples. “It’s fantastic to be able to hear and see firsthand non-aboriginal people saying, ‘Wow, you people have an amazing culture. The regalia was beautiful, the drumming,’” said

Penticton author launchs Shelter


hree years ago, under the trees in Linden Gardens, Penticton author Frances Greenslade read from her unfinished manuscript. I was captivated. The writing was so clear and precise that months later I could recall exact details of a yellow poplar leaf caught in the truck’s windshield wiper, and a forest outside gently raining dying leaves. The story fragments bubbled up in my memory often enough that I eventually contacted Greenslade, asking her to let me know when the book was finished. And at long last, Shelter will be on store shelves for everyone to enjoy. My wait was nothing compared to the gestation period of Shelter. Greenslade first began working on the book shortly after her mother’s death in 1992. Now backed by a major publishing house, and with strong, vivid writing reminiscent of great Canadian writers like AnnMarie MacDonald, I suspect Shelter’s timeline will stretch on much further. Maggie and Jenny

live in the rustic, rural Chilcotin valley in the early ‘70s. After their father is involved in a logging accident, their mother, Irene, abruptly leaves town. She drops the girls in Williams Lake to billet with a gloomy acquaintance and her wheelchairbound husband. Irene never returns. Both girls deal with the uncertain and at times desperate situation in radically different ways. But rather than mining the girls’ plight for pathetic effect, Greenslade’s tone skirts around darkness, remaining poignantly melancholic and yet underlain with hope. Shelter is a basic human


requirement. Greenslade explores myriad aspects of shelter, including the extent to which parents are obligated to provide shelter for their children. “Maggie and Jenny began to haunt my imagination, and I began to think about lost mothers and

about mothers who make choices that don’t necessarily have to do with their children,” Greenslade says about writing the book. “The unspoken question in both Maggie and Jenny’s minds is: ‘Did she choose this?’ They want their mother to be fine, but Maggie realizes that if she’s fine, that’s even worse. What would that mean? That she was staying away intentionally?” The Chilcotin is a beautiful, but raw, landscape. “It’s a place where people made the choice to leave behind their old lives, and disappear into what was really still a wild frontier,” said Greenslade. By capturing the place so perfectly, Greenslade allows you to disappear into a story with a clear, visceral beauty of its own. Shelter will be in bookstores on Aug. 23, and will have its Penticton launch on Sept.15 at 7 p.m. in Okanagan College. Visit www.francesgreenslade. com/ for more info.

The Change-Up isn’t all that much of a change


n a Freaky Friday manoeuvre for big kids, Jason Bateman — devoted family man — and Ryan Reynolds — irresponsible party hound — switch bodies and trade places. On paper, it sounds awfully good. On screen, it’s more awful than good. Maybe this whole switcheroo thing has simply been done to death and The Change-Up isn’t that bad. And truth be told, if you can survive the juvenile and embarrassingly stale script by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, it is fun to watch Reynolds and Bateman do their thing … even if this exercise has been so recycled, one of the film’s stars (Leslie Mann) attended the exact same dance two summers ago in 17 Again. Bateman plays Dave Lockwood, a workaholic attorney so desperate to make partner at his law firm, his wife (Mann) and three young kids have to compete for his time. His buddy, Mitch Planko (Reynolds), is the exact opposite; a wannabe actor

the mere utterance of the f-word is comedy gold. (I realize it’s a most versatile word, boys. I mean, how many other words can be used as a noun, an adjective, a verb and more, but here’s an idea; when you use it, as you do about nine thousand times here, have a reason to do so.)

It’s a good thing Bateman and Reynolds — both fine actors — are game to play (as is Olivia Wilde, who seems to relish her role as a good girl turned bad). Without them, The Change-Up would be a pretty ugly film. Yes, the switchedidentity genre has never been quite so raunchy, but past that, nothing much has changed. Out of a possible five stars, I’ll give The Change-Up a two. The feature is currently playing at the PenMar Cinema Centre in Penticton. Jason Armstrong is a movie reviewer living in the Okanagan.

Trip of a lifetime for Pinnacles EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Western News Staff

Visiting Portugal and England was an eye-opening experience for the under-15 Penticton Pinnacles boys soccer team. It started with training at the Sporting Clube de Portugal facility that produced Portuguese legend Luis Figo and superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Pinnacles coach Paulo Araujo described the two-week adventure as fabulous. While staying at the academy, the players trained for five days, twice a day for four hours total. Brett Depner, a Pinnacles defender, said he was able to improve his skills from what the Portuguese coaches taught and said he learned so much. “They would come up to us and help one-on-one if we weren’t getting it right,” said Depner. “They would help us in all parts of our game.” Noah Eaton, another Pinnacle, said it was the best experience of his life. Visiting the pro stadiums and going to the games is his best memory because there is nothing like that here. Eaton also said training at the Sporting Club “was intense.” “We learned how serious soccer is in that country,” he added. Araujo said it showed the players what kind of training they need to do if they want to be a footballer in Europe. “It was just amazing,” he said. “The boys were very attentive to what the coaches were saying. They really bought into the idea of what they were trying to teach. We even had the coaches of Sporting come up to us and say they were very impressed with the attitude and work commitment of these boys. Their skill level is good, their understanding of the game is good, they just need to play higher competition to get to the level they see in Portugal.”

In England, the Pinnacles displayed their skills in the Keele International Soccer Cup. After opening the championship with a 5-1 loss to Norway, the Pinnacles won four and tied one on their way to winning the B Division Plate finals against England’s Stockport Vikings, 2-1. Araujo never imagined his team winning. “I was confident that we would go there and compete,” he said. “I didn’t think we would go there and actually come home with four wins and a tie. The best game I think that really turned it around was when we beat Barton Rovers 1-0.” Araujo felt they were the toughest competition. “People said there is no way Penticton can win,” he continued. “In my opinion, we dominated the game. A 1-0 score doesn’t say how well they played.” In their other games, the Pinnacles defeated Trinidad-Tobago’s Clint Marcello FC 4-0 and tied Hem Heath FC of England, 2-2. Penticton also defeated Maryland’s Soccer Association of Columbia 4-3 in penalty kicks to advance to the championship. It wasn’t just high caliber soccer the Pinnacles enjoyed. They soaked in the Portuguese and British culture. Will Eaton, Noah’s father, was impressed with the opportunity given to the players thanks to various fundraising efforts that helped pay for the trip arranged through Araujo. Eaton said it was an “awakening for the boys,” to see first hand how intense and professional the soccer environment is, as well as the rich, cultural component. “Seeing the boys and their enthusiasm at the Keele International Cup, winning the gold plate, winning that meant a lot to them,” said Will, who cherished the time with his son. “It was a once in a lifetime trip.”

Cycling race to bring high-level riders EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Western News Staff

High caliber cyclists will compete in what organizers hope will be the annual Penticton Western News Wine Country Criterium on Aug. 19. The one-kilometre course

takes riders along Okanagan Lake through downtown Penticton starting and finishing on Main Street. Category B racers begin at 6 p.m. riding for 30 minutes plus two laps, while Category A racers will ride for 45 minutes and two laps. Prize money is given to the top three in each category, plus

primes and draw prizes. Ron Hayman, one of the first Canadian cyclists to turn pro in the 1970s, is the founder of the PWN Wine Country Criterium and facilitator and said he believes this can be successful. see RACE on 17

Sports Camp lessons prove invaluable EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Western News Staff

Fred Fedorak wasn’t kidding when he said the Penticton Basketball Camp is in demand. Fedorak has organized the camp for 30 years and watched the girls section follow the footsteps of the boys in selling out. The boys camp was held July 25 to 28 at Pen High and Princess Margaret, while the girls concluded on Thursday. The advanced group had 45 females participate, while the developing group had 44. In the developing group Katie Watts waited 10 months to come. “I live in Burns Lake which is about 11 hours north and so I don’t have much coaching there,” said Watts, who is attending the camp for the second year. “I get the coach-

“We have been overwhelmed by the support from the Downtown Penticton Business Association,” he said. “When we first approached them through Jeff Plant, it was, we have to make this happen. How can they set it up? It’s been just great.” Plant, sports tourism marketing for Penticton Wine Country Tourism, is excited. He said they are treating the debut like a test event and hope to turn it into a provincial criterium. “We want to see if it can grow into a bigger event,” said Plant. “Have a stage race.” Hayman feels the criterium will be a nice piggy back to the Future Champions camp starting Monday in Penticton and wraps up in time for the race. The camp will have 37 riders, who will gain knowledge to help them become professionals. “Having this caliber of racers in the Okanagan is seldom,” added Hayman. “We haven’t had highlevel road racing for many years. It’s reintroducing the sport to our area.” Registration is at Gyro Park after 4:30 p.m. and online at www. then clicking on the events tab, which shows more information.

Play it safe over summer. Summer season is in full swing, with great weather, summer vacations, and outdoor entertaining the order of the day. But spending more time outdoors using backyard barbeques and having pool parties can leave you and your home vulnerable to damage and liability. Before you fire up the BBQ or jump in for a cool down, remember these safety precautions to keep your family, friends, and home safe. Whether you’re entertaining family and friends or just looking to cook up a tasty dinner, barbeques present a safety risk to you and your home. Before you fire ‘er up, remember these handy tips:

the hose. If bubbles appear, you have a leak and you must repair or replace the part(s) before using the barbeque again. Check the valves too. t 8IFO ZPV GJOJTI CBSCFRVJOH  turn off the cylinder valve first, then the grill controls.

Market spurs investment jitters investment strategies. “Investing is more than buying when you feel good and selling when you feel bad. It’s about developing and sticking with a solid strategy that addresses your needs today as well as your longterm goals. It can be tempting to turn your back on your investment strategy, but we believe that is a mistake,� said White. “You can’t control the market or the economy, but you can control how you react to them. If you find yourself reacting to every headline, it may help to take a step back and evaluate the longer-term positive trends in the economy and earnings. We believe they will ultimately matter more than the market’s short-term ups and downs.� Poole said the U.S. is the least taxed of the developed economies and need to get their heads politically wrapped around the idea that is not working. “In the meantime what we are seeing is pure volatility. The ups and downs aren’t based on anything factually. It is absolute emotion that drives this market and nobody can predict what that will be,� said Poole. Adjusting in a moderate way is the thing to do right now advises

KRISTI PATTON Western News Staff

Using the crash of 2008 as a reminder, Penticton financial advisors said investors shouldn’t panic at the volatility of the market right now. “It’s not the time for that at all,� said Judy Poole, a financial advisor at Raymond James. “I think as in 2008 we start to find out what people’s true risk tolerance is. I think people need to assess what that is and over time get their portfolio to reflect that.� Market volatility was sparked by the U.S. losing its AAA credit status rating. A negative outlook on the U.S. rating, means that further downgrades are possible. The concerns over the European debt crises and global economic growth are also weighing in on the stock markets. Justin White, financial advisor with Edward Jones in Penticton, said stocks have dropped by more than six per cent over the past two weeks and the TSX is down about 13 per cent from the high it reached in April. Even though it can be unsettling, he said these types of stock market declines are common and not a reason to abandon your

Poole. Although she doesn’t suggest anyone make wholesale changes at this point in time, rather start to slowly develop the plan for it. “Because nobody can predict, this is a really good time to average into the market. So use some of those old-fashioned conservative strategies like averaging to take the bumps out,� said Poole. Setting up an appointment with a financial advisor and starting to do something on a regular monthly basis is the ideal way to invest at any time said Poole. As for the best guess on what the horizon holds for the Canadian dollar, Poole predicts it will return to the $1.05 to $1.06 range. The Canadian dollar rose to $1.0118, at close on Thursday. “This up-kick in the U.S. dollar is probably a safety thing. They are still the largest most stable currency in the world, but based on economic reality it would belong where it was at $1.05. For a snowbird, I wouldn’t panic, but I would also use averaging there as well. If you know you are going to need $10,000 in U.S. currency for the winter then buy some now, buy some a month from now and you may not get the best rate but you are not betting the farm on today or tomorrow either,� said Poole.

Dane Henschel, beloved by all; father, son and brother, passed away at he age of 58 in Hawaii. He was born on the 27th of May 1953, in Sacramento, California. It has been noted that when we die, our lives are basically represented by dates. If we look hard enough however, we notice that little dash between the dates. The dash tells a story. Dane’s is a story of passion; passion in abundance. Dane was a thrill seeker. If he wasn’t jumping off a bridge attached only by an elastic band, he was leaping from a plane with gusto and a grin. Some of his fondest memories would include a Harley Davidson Softtail, a long ride, and dinner with the Woo family. He was a talented musician and fierce friend. Loving and protective of all those who surrounded him, Dane was always the life of the party. He was also an intense Marco Polo enthusiast (the swimming pool variety that is). A teller of tall tales and high adventure. He was always good for a story, or a funny joke. No fish was ever big enough. Dane is survived by his mother Betty and his three brothers, Brett, Kim and Sean; as well as his two sons, Chris and Rob, and his granddaughter Eve. We’ll miss you Dad. Marco?...

Passed away peacefully on August 1, 2011, at Penticton, BC in the Hamlets, at the age of 86 years. Sam will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 39 years, Claire, son Donald (Sue), four grandchildren; Jodie, Felicity, Elisabeth, Sammy, great grandchild, Joshua and his three sisters; Marie, Daphne and Hazel. He also loved his French Canadian side of the family, sisters in law and brothers in law; Helena, Madeleine, Claude (Louise) Andre (Lise) and Nicole (Andre). We would like to thank the wonderful care aides who made Sam’s life a lot brighter by their presence during the day and also at night, in particular, Marian, Roxanne, Fiona, Rebecca, Scott, Nicole Grant, Richard, Debbie V., Lila, Andy, Melissa, Terri, Jennifer, Jeab, and Nicole. Sam loved them all. Thanks also to the devoted nurses in Giant’s Head and Brent. Special thanks to Dr. Watters, who tended to Sam’s needs to the end. Thanks also to all our Florida friends who stood by me through all of the difficult times. Sam loved fishing, playing cards and spending time with his friends. He will always be remembered for his kind soul. Cremation took place at the Providence Crematorium, Lakeview Cemetery, with a private family service to follow at a later date in Florida. Condolences may be sent to the family through Providence Funeral Homes Parkview Chapel (250) 493-1774
