Take Back the Night march takes aim at reducing violence Simone Blais

Western News Staff

Now more than ever, Penticton needs to Take Back the Night. Four local organizations have set aside Thursday night to reclaim South Okanagan streets from violence during an annual march. For Reasha Wolfe, Penticton and Area Women’s Centre advocacy outreach worker, Take Back the Night has too many meanings for area residents this year. “Considering all the violence that our community has seen in the last few months, we feel like it’s especially important to take back our streets,” she said. The centre helped organize a Strength in Numbers march in August following several weeks of brutal attacks on women in Penticton: a string of sexual assaults over the long weekend as well as the high-pro¿le case of the 22-year-old woman who was allegedly kidnapped, con¿ned, tortured and sexually assaulted in front of her child. Wolfe said community residents have asked centre staff why public events aren’t held each time violence against women is perpetrated. She said they wished they could, but they would unfortunately be inundated by the task. “We just don’t have to the resources to do that. … We would be doing that all the time, and then we wouldn’t have time to serve the people who call us and knock on our door,” she said. “We want all the people who have experienced violence or who have

been affected, this is our response. This is the opportunity to let people know that it’s not OK with us if even one person is enduring violence.” Wolfe cited the recent case of a 56-year-old Penticton woman who was allegedly killed by her commonlaw husband. Although that did not take place on a city street, she said she hopes the family knows they are welcome to take part. “I really want the family of the woman … to feel like this is their night. I felt terrible there were so many rapes over the summer. There were more rapes reported over the August long

weekend than ever before,” she said. “We want the community to know that this is our opportunity to speak up for those voices who have been silenced, and to do it in a happy and positive way.” More than 100 people attended last year’s march, and approximately 200 people took part in August after the rash of incidents. Wolfe said the heightened awareness altered the way many people in the community think about violence. “People leave the event feeling powerful and connected, and that’s what we want. Often people experi-

encing violence feel helpless and isolated. We can sometimes change that in one walk,” she said, recalling how more people called and dropped by the centre after. “The solidarity of the community provided a safe space for other women who had experienced violence in the past. They felt inspired to ¿nally look for help and sort through their experiences and see what kind of new life they can build. “That alone is worth all the efforts that it takes to put these events together.” The centre is joined by three other organizations in putting on the event:

the Okanagan College Student Union and Women’s Centre, Ooknakane Friendship Centre and Okanagan Nation Transition-Emergency House. Take Back the Night takes place each September in line with marches held throughout the world. The event began in the 1970s in the United Kingdom, organized by women who were fearful of walking on the street. Wolfe said the Penticton march has expanded to recognize the fears of more than just women; men, children, seniors and members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities are all impacted by violence on the streets. That’s why all ages, races and genders are welcome to take part in Take Back the Night. “People ¿nd it really exciting and empowering,” she said. “One thing I like about Take Back the Night is it’s a fun event. Even though violence is a serious issue, to be able to walk down the street joyfully with a big group of people, it’s so much fun. “It’s often people’s ¿rst step into social justice work, because they have so much fun doing that and they ¿nd it meaningful and see the effect it has on the community. That inspires people to ¿nd a place for themselves in other important efforts.” On Thursday, participants are asked to gather starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Ooknakane Friendship Centre at 1203 Main St., from which they will march down to the new building at Okanagan College on West Duncan. A program featuring speakers and presentations will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Centre for Excellence within the college. Donors and sponsors have covered the costs of venues, food and other items.

Curtain rises on downtown theatre Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Vicki Gerrits didn’t want to see another set of condos in the Penticton downtown core, so she sat on her family’s much-sought-after property for years. Finally, the environmental certi¿cation that they needed arrived to forge a deal with Landmark Cinemas in the early part of 2011, and with that the site for a new movie theatre was of¿cially announced last Friday. “To me it was always my dad’s property and something that he saw as being a really key property in Penticton, so I wanted to be able to put something there that would give back to Penticton. When there were offers on the table I waited because I always wanted to go with the cinema because I thought that would energize the downtown core,” said Gerrits. “I would love to be able to sit in one of the restaurants that is down by the theatre and watch all the people coming and going and realize that site now has rejuvenated the downtown core of Penticton.” In 2005 Landmark Cinemas announced they were going to build a new theatre on the Westminster Avenue site now occupied by Liquidation World. Environmental, design concept and parking plans were all roadblocks faced by the company. Then in 2010 Landmark Cinemas announced they would build their new theatre at the proposed Channel Crossing Shopping Centre on the Penticton Indian Reserve. Once again delays faced by the developers stalled that plan, a

LANDMARK CINEMAS president Brian McIntosh announces plans for the construction of a seven-screen theatre on Westminster Avenue. It is anticipated to open in late spring 2012.

bridge to connect the end of Green Avenue to the site was the culprit. But the environmental issues cleared up in February, and the Liquidation World site presented itself once again. “Because we have been delaying this too long, the moment that the opportunity opened up to revisit the downtown site we extracted ourselves from Channel Crossing. We are certain the Channel Crossing will continue and will proceed in due course once they get through the issues they have to deal with, but we just don’t want to wait for it. This new opportu-

nity downtown let us have the cinema open many, many months before the Channel Crossing,” said Landmark Cinemas president Brian McIntosh. Expected to be open by late spring of 2012, the new site will be the home of a 24,000-square-foot, stateof-the-art, seven-screen multiplex cinema. Full stadium seating from over 1,200 wide, high-backed seats promises comfort and leg room to patrons. Digital sound, large curved screens and RealD 3D technology are also highlights of the new theatre. The existing Pen Mar Cinema will close

on the opening of the new Landmark Cinema. “The Landmark Cinema, Penticton will become the entertainment destination for the South Okanagan, presenting the newest ¿rst-run movies and also alternative entertainment content including opera, live theatre, concerts and sporting events,” said McIntosh. At least two restaurants also are being considered for the development. McIntosh said the property management group would also like to have the corner piece of the prop-

erty where Budget Rentals currently is. P.J. Mallen, who has been retained as the architect for the theatre project, said they would be looking at local contractors, tradespeople and trying to source as much supply locally as they can. “I think this is enormous. It gives us that opportunity to move forward in terms of creating that nighttime entertainment district and creating the vibrancy at night that we have lacked. We certainly have it in terms of nightclubs, but a steady stream for instance on a Wednesday night in November,” said Barb Haynes, president of the Downtown Penticton Association. “This will give an opportunity for us to really build off the Àow of traf¿c coming into watch movies and the draw that Landmark Cinemas has, not just here in Penticton but in the South Okanagan. They have regular customers coming from Princeton, Oliver, Tulameen and places like Tonasket.” Haynes said there were concerns from downtown business owners when it was announced the theatre would be built away from the core. “I think there was a sense of loss, and that is partly what spurred us on to really have conversations with the Gerrits and Landmark Cinemas. Along with David Arsenault of the economic development of¿ce, we worked really hard to see if we could move this project along. It is exciting to see it come now,” said Haynes. Liquidation World will close on Nov.1 and demolition of that building will commence shortly after to begin construction on the new theatre.

City leads charge against rate hikes at UBCM Simone Blais Western News Staff

Penticton representatives will be prompting their provincial counterparts to consider potential electricity rate increases at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention set for this week in Vancouver. Mayors and councillors representing all the villages, towns and cities across B.C. will muster this week to grapple with municipal issues that require the attention of senior levels of government. The topics are as varied as the towns represented: on the agenda for debate are resolutions pertaining to medical marijuana, taxation, the environment and legislative items. Many issues cross municipal boundaries, much like wildlife management plans that propose a deer cull to

deal with over population. Penticton put forward one resolution to be addressed at UBCM, and it pertained to a proposed 11-per-cent rate increase by Fortis, in line with B.C. Hydro’s request. Mayor Dan Ashton said the premier had already stepped in on the issue to quash any such energy hikes, but said the city feels as though the issue isn’t about to disappear. “It’s pretty tough out there right now for everybody, and I think she (Premier Christy Clark) has realized that and taken a lot of that back,” Ashton said Monday. “That doesn’t mean that both organizations won’t be faced with higher additional costs in the future, which they’ll be passing along. “It’s always a bit dif¿cult to be see rates that exceed the rate of inÀation on a continual basis, and that’s one of the issues.”

He said B.C Hydro and Fortis have been tasked with supplying power to homes ever thirsty for energy. “Our mom and dads had a fridge and a toaster and a stove and a radio, stereo and TV. They didn’t have everything else that goes with it,” Ashton said. “The internal demands in our homes has gone up dramatically, and this is what causes some of the upgrades that are required of the lines and the new dams.” The UBCM resolution committee recommended the convention endorse the resolution, noting the membership objected to B.C. Hydro’s proposed increases of seven per cent in 2004 and nine per cent in 2005. Area concerns also line up with those further a¿eld. RDOS joined ¿ve other regional districts from Nanaimo, Sunshine Coast, Kit-

imat-Stikine, Cariboo and Comox Valley to call on the provincial government to review the taxation formula of B.C. Hydro and other Crown corporations to implement a fair and equitable method of compensation for local governments. “The way things are, with some of the things the government has been getting out of, some of the regional districts and municipalities have had to increase their activities in because the government has got away from that, there seems to be a bigger share that municipalities are being asked to step up to the plate with,” Ashton said. “Our ability to offset that demand in taxation is dif¿cult. We’re asking for a fairer tax to be paid by Crown corporations on Crown land.” The UBCM continues all week at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre.

RCMP hunt for attacker Western News Staff

RCMP are looking for a man who attempted to sexually assault a Penticton woman early Sunday morning . Sgt. Rick Dellebuur said a 23-year-old Penticton woman was walking on Industrial Avenue near Atkinson Street around 4 a.m. on Sunday when she met an unknown male. “The male started up a conversation with her as they both

continued to walk west on Industrial Avenue. The male suddenly grabbed the female, spun her around and ripped off her pants and attempted intercourse with her while he held her by the throat,” said Dellebuur. The female fought off her attacker and managed to escape and get to a friend’s place. The male is described as Caucasian, late 20s to early 30s, ¿vefoot-eight, medium build, 170 pounds, with a deep voice, nice

teeth, clean shaven, short brown hair, looked like he was wearing eye liner and had a blue bead piercing on top of his right ear. He was believed to be wearing a navy blue jacket with Adidas written across the chest and stripes on the arms, a white T-shirt, old light blue ripped jeans and runners. Anyone with information about this incident are asked to contact RCMP at 250-492-4300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Eight males have been arrested near Oliver after RCMP seized approximately 119 pounds of marijuana last Wednesday that was believed to be headed across the border. The RCMP Integrated Border Enforcement Team stopped a 2004 Ford F150 white pickup truck without incident on Camp McKinney Road in Oliver. Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the vehicle was heading south towards the United States border. Police arrested three males in the vehicle and seized the marijuana. Further down the road, a second vehicle, a 1995 green Toyota 4Runner, was located in connection with this incident and an additional ¿ve males were arrested. “The second vehicle contained various pieces of smuggling equipment such as camouÀage clothing, camouÀage backpacks, outdoor gear and radios,” said Moskaluk.

By intercepting these drugs, we are removing the fuel that drives organized crime,” said Moskaluk. A number of police agencies were involved in the arrests including North Okanagan traf¿c services, South Okanagan traf¿c services, Oliver/Osoyoos RCMP, Penticton police dog service, Oroville Station U.S. Border Patrol, Curlew Station U.S. Border Patrol and the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen regional general investigation section.

The teams share a common border and common objective — to stop criminals from using the border as a conduit for illegal activities.

Candidates need to put community first

W

hat started as a trickle will quickly become a Àood of candidate declarations for Nov. 19’s civic elections. We’ll give readers the full scoop on who is seeking to represent you once nominations close, but to those who’ve already made their intentions clear, and to those still mulling the possibility of running for public of¿ce, we’ve got a few words of encouragement and advice. Come with a thick skin, an open mind — open ears are crucial, too — and ideas. What Penticton and the South Okanagan needs, whether it’s at the regional district, city council or school board, is leadership. We’re looking for people who can get things done. We’re looking for people who realize they can’t make everyone happy, and they can’t study an issue to death. We’re looking for people who are bold — who will learn, listen, and then make decisions accordingly. Representing your community is a big commitment — be prepared to spend long hours around the council table, in committee meetings and at public events. If you’re thinking of running, you should already be attending those. Remember, this community has a complicated menu of issues — ranging from a variety of public and private developments, water, sewage, roads, taxes and more — and you’ve got to understand them. You’ve also got to have ideas to address them. If elected, what you do in the coming years will have a lasting impact on our community. Don’t run to inÀate your ego, ¿ll your time, promote a particular cause, or for the paycheque. Do it because this is your community and you want to help it grow for the bene¿t of everyone in it.

B.C. jobs plan bumps into reality Premier Christy Clark’s “B.C. Jobs Plan” took some hits as she was ¿nishing her week-long publicity tour to roll it out. The serious damage wasn’t from her political opponents on the left and right. The body blows came from Europe, the United States and China, where the storm clouds of a second recession continued to gather. As world leaders offered up a chorus of warning about debt and falling consumer demand, commodity markets for metals, coal and petroleum tumbled along with stocks. One of the few ¿rm targets Clark offered was that eight new mines should be up and running in B.C. by 2015, with expansions or upgrades to nine more existing mines. That is the total arrived at after detailed meetings with the industry. But if China’s factories slow down because fewer Americans and Europeans buy their goods, those projects can fade as quickly as the price of copper. Total provincial spending for the B.C. jobs plan comes out around $300 million. The big-ticket items were contributions to port and rail facilities at

B.C. Views Prince Rupert and Tsawwassen. Another $24 million goes to staff up natural resource permit of¿ces, which are backlogged after amalgamation of various ministry functions. NDP leader Adrian Dix leapt on that announcement, saying it proves that the B.C. Liberals starved the regional of¿ces. He’s right on that. For example, the Resource Ministry’s regional director for Skeena told the Bulkley-Nechako regional district board this spring that he has 30 per cent less staff than ¿ve years ago. Some of that is a result of ending duplication of forest, energy and other ministries, but by this spring there were 65 independent power

projects waiting for approval in Skeena alone. Of course the NDP would ¿x that backlog by killing off the projects, and presumably break up the Natural Resources Ministry again, to ramp up their beloved government jobs. The NDP also jumped on BC Liberal MLA John Les for going to high-unemployment Nanaimo and suggesting people should look north where jobs are going begging. Construction company Ledcor had job fairs in Prince George and Chetwynd in early September, looking for hundreds of truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, drillers, blasters, mechanics, surveyors and labourers for the Willow Creek coal mine in Tumbler Ridge. Another job fair was held in Fort St. James around the same time, looking for equipment operators for the Mount Milligan copper-gold mine. I had a chat a couple of weeks ago with a grader operator in Dawson Creek, working in the gas patch. Most of the pickups he sees on job sites have Alberta licence plates. So let’s say you’re an ablebodied unemployed guy sitting

in Nanaimo, waiting for a job to come to you. If that’s how you think the economy works, it’s no surprise if your preferred political message is Dix’s 1960s socialist blather about the government forcibly sharing the wealth. And it’s no surprise that you’re unemployed. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins trashed the Prince Rupert port announcement as a payoff to local aboriginal people for a potash facility. “The usual Liberal policy of giving Natives a veto on new projects has got to end,” Cummins said, demonstrating once again that he understands nothing about the evolution of this issue in the past 20 years. In summary, Clark’s jobs plan is to continue Gordon Campbell’s Paci¿c gateway strategy. The opposition parties are reheating decades-old failed options they hope will smell better than a stale threeterm government. And B.C. is, as always, at the mercy of world events.

Deer situation the worst in 20 years

I have to admit I am in a quandary with my thoughts on the deer issue. I am an avid animal lover through and through, to the extent that I catch and release spiders I ¿nd in my home. But over the past year, I have to admit, the deer in my neighbourhood are de¿nitely taking over. I love to walk my dogs in the green space above my home, and on several occasions over the past year, have been chased by deer. Recently my Chesapeake was attacked and kicked by a mother deer, she was lucky she was not severely hurt. I have always taken the stance that we are in their territory so we need to be aware and be careful. Over the past few months the deer have decided to take over my backyard. My property is fenced but they have no trouble jumping a four-foot fence and coming into my yard to eat the fruit on the trees and the Àowers in my garden. They bed down for the night and make themselves quite at home. Now that it is getting dark earlier I cannot see them in my yard and have let my dogs out without thinking. The deer

Deer make themselves at home

Re: Rumination about ruminants: Lately I’m afraid of long legs and big ears, and no, it’s not my latest boyfriend. It seems I have some deer ones living with me. Big Mama has a dapplety baby plus two teenagers, and is so scared of me that she casually licks her shoulder while standing 20 feet from me and my back door. A sweet single mother with twins prefers the small front yard but is properly skittish, as a deer should be. No more leaves? Let them eat plums (peach plums, yet). They very daintily spit out the stones, but sometimes still have them attached to the torn-off twig (how do they do that?). My sources tell me hanging Zest from the trees will keep the deer from the fruit, but knowing my deer, they’d probably eat the soap. I’m afraid to take my little dog for a walk “up the creek” (without a weapon), but then realized we certainly wouldn’t meet any deer there; they were all already happily settled in my yard. I’ve been told to bang pots, make a lot of noise. Big Mama and her family just look bemused; they think, “Well, let her make a racket, we don’t mind, after all, we did agree to share our yard with her.” Joy Lang Penticton

Deer plan under fire

I was shocked and saddened by the story in today’s papers stating that city council had passed a bill allowing the in-city culling and euthanasia of deer. It was misleading to state that there was no signi¿cant response against city council’s deer plan. Until today no speci¿cs had been decided or communicated about this. The last I read in the newspaper was mention of relocation. Would relocation cost too much? I’d rather see my taxes going to relocation rather than guns; but I wasn’t consulted. The deer face dangers from humans and their pets. They risk being hit by cars, chased by unleashed dogs (which I witnessed). Why was the dog unleashed? And why wouldn’t a deer run away if it was being chased by a large dog? As for small dogs, they will bark at a moving leaf, with no notion of how big the object is they are encountering. I have seen people provoking deer by running after them with sticks in gated communities in this town, but have not seen any of the human travesties against the deer being reported in the media.

I love to walk my dogs in the green space above my home, and on several occasions over the past year, have been chased by deer.

are so brave, they are not afraid of the barking dogs or my yelling. They just chase us into the house and lay back down. Both dogs try to protect their property and are in real danger of being hurt. The little Chihuahua does not like to back down, even when chased. I have also woken up in the morning to ¿nd them bedded down, just waking up from a good night’s sleep.

If, as the mayor’s of¿ce states, 60 complaints have been ¿led against deer, that is hardly representative of a town of more than 30,000. It makes me wonder if these minority voices are being used to advance a city council agenda. Allowing shooting within city limits could be dangerous to humans. Why are they not going to be relocated to outlying areas? I moved from a large Eastern Canadian city to Penticton, because of what I thought was a place where wildlife and people lived amicably together. I was charmed, and still am, by seeing the deer walking on the foothills in view of my townhouse. I will be furious, if I can no longer look out and see the deer, or worse witness them being shot or euthanized. Maybe the complainers might support humane relocation, if they had lived somewhere else, only to see concrete walls, highrises, pollution and traf¿c marring their view, instead of deer munching on petunias and fruits. Humans are the ones who have encroached on nature. This “cull them off” attitude makes me feel ashamed to be called human, especially when there is a no-kill solution. Heather Caron Penticton

Deer fence the solution

For the several years that I lived by Campbell Mountain, nothing has ever been done about the deer in the area of the city. There are no road signs indicating that they are in the area. The mayor and council are too busy with the issues: prison, bicycle lane, the pool, etc. No one cares about safety concerning the public interest. The provincial government and ICBC spent millions of dollars on deer fences from Osoyoos to Kelowna on Highway 97 to prevent deer mishaps on public roads. The problem with this mayor and council is they do not want to address these concerns, they’d rather discuss big spending on culling them (deer). My say as a concerned citizen of Penticton, is to build a fence along Campbell Mountain to prevent the deer from coming down to the city. Display a sign of wild life on the road along Johnson Road and Upper Bench, as they have deer signs down Vancouver hill, to prevent any injury to residents, cyclists, tourists, etc. There is no need for a cull on the deer population. Brian Morris Penticton

I am unable to let my dogs out in their own backyard anymore. I have tried putting on my sprinkler to deter them from coming in but to no avail. Last night, two mothers, each with two babies, were having a lovely rest with the sprinkler providing a light shower for them. My dogs had to go out in the front yard for their evening relief. The fruit is ¿nished and the Àowers are eaten so that is not attracting them. Although I have never believed in culls, I have to say this situation has me thinking differently. I am not one to put up a huge fence around my property but am stymied as to what to do to keep the deer out. I have lived in the neighbourhood for 20 years and this is the worst it has ever been. I have also lived in the country in harmony with the bears, lynx, deer, raccoons, etc. but this is not the country. I want my sanctuary back; I want to reclaim my property. If there is a way to do this, without culling the deer, I am all for it, but something has to be done. Daryl Meyers Penticton

Deer more than nuisance

This is in reply to the letter to the editor of Sept. 14 (Culling not the answer). As a hunter, I resent the statement that it’s only for us to kill something (legally). To start with, most of the deer in town look sickly, as though they’ve been eating too much grass, roses or fruit trees with insecticides and sprays. What a surprise, no one told them it wasn’t safe to eat for 15 days. I drive through 30 to 50 deer getting out of town each morning to get up in the hills to hunt. This over population in town scares me. When our kids or grandkids end up in the hospital with deer ticks or lyme disease (or even disabled in a wheelchair), don’t blame so-called hunters. Penticton’s main industry is tourism. We used to drive visitors around city parks, streets and beaches, as they were beautiful. Now you see fenced yards, beaches with goose droppings, trees half eaten and no or limited Àower beds. When is a little nuisance too much. Thank you to the aldermen that are actually trying to do something. Lorne Vipond Penticton

Get moving on deer solution

More interesting reading was had regarding council’s strategy to kill deer in the City of Penticton. Actually it was disbelief on my part. Do they not realize that for every person whose poodle is mauled and writes a letter there are tenfold the people sitting back enjoying the sight of a mule deer within city limits? People that are happy simply do not write letters of contentment to the ministry or to civil servants. The grief from this cull will certainly bring many hours of wasted time for the Ministry of Environment as well as city staff. It was interesting to read how the deer are going to be killed by tranquilizing them and then using a bolt gun, similar I am sure to the ones used in slaughter houses. It is nice to hear the meat will be used but I would sincerely suggest that some contact be made with a vet or someone in the medical ¿eld before this is done. After all, you don’t want all those people falling asleep in their mashed potatoes after eating tranquilized deer meat. I personally see no reason why if several can be tranquilized, blindfolded and hobbled, that they could not be moved to another valley. I personally would volunteer to drive over with my truck and cargo trailer and help move these deer. I have already

garnered help from a retired local vet and I am sure there are lots of hunters who would help out. Come on Penticton make good news not bad. Ernie Marven Cawston

Volunteers play vital role

The One To One children’s literacy program depends on volunteers, so we truly appreciate reporter Steve Kidd’s assistance in getting the word out (Literacy tutors needed, Sept. 21 edition). We would like to let your readers know that while the usual commitment from a volunteer is for up to 12 weeks (depending on the school), we realize that this is impossible for many people — especially retirees who have the opportunity to travel during the winter months. Our program’s school co-ordinators are happy to include these volunteers for whatever time they are available. Any adult interested in ¿nding out more is welcome to call 250-493-7554 for more information, and come to one of our upcoming volunteer training sessions (next one is Oct. 3). Thanks again Mr. Kidd and the Penticton Western News, for helping us let people know about our program. Dawn Renaud, assistant literacy outreach co-ordinator Literacy Now South OkanaganSimilkameen

Premier’s promises ring hollow Since becoming premier, Ms. Clark has maintained a position of “families ¿rst” from a distance. Very little evidence has been shown to have bene¿tted families as promised. It seems to be a hurry up and wait scenario. Finally, on Sept. 20, her conspicuous silence was broken with what she made sound like a monumental announcement regarding job creation in the province. It was hyped to the point of being the greatest innovation since sliced bread. Anyone with any sort of understanding as to how things work in this province under this Liberal regime should see that

her announcement of job creation is as hollow as a swamp reed. Mr. Campbell also waxed eloquently on the job creation that would take place as a result of the now dodo-bird HST. Ms. Clark is taking a page from Campbell’s book in promising job creation — but, somewhere in the future. It seems that déjà vu is the order of the day and that Ms. Clark is nothing more than Gordon Campbell in a skirt. Clearly, it would take resources to implement a job creation program. It would also require administrative staff, of¿ce space and manage-

Fringe benefits

Municipalities continually complain that fringe area residents come into the city to work, shop and recreate but do not pay taxes to the city. This may be true in the sense of who sends their tax payment to city hall, but it is generally mistaken when who really pays taxes is considered. Furthermore, businesses, which bene¿t most directly from attracting employees and shoppers over a larger area, are signi¿cant direct taxpayers to the municipal government such that their tax revenues have been found to be in excess of the costs of servicing business, commuters and shoppers in studies that have been taken. The most comprehensive study in British Columbia by KPMG for Vancouver, found that the business community in Vancouver covered their municipal servicing costs, including the costs of shoppers and commuter. They also provided such a surplus that Vancouver residents had to pay only 50 cents for each $1 worth of city bene¿ts they received. Claims of exploitation by fringe area residents where the municipality is the business centre just do not stand up. Given the extensive research on this issue, municipalities are better off because they don’t have the responsibility for funding roads, water, sewer, social services or policing costs for the fringe areas. This is why annexations to include fringe areas virtually always involve a net ¿nancial loss to the city. The residents of West Bench, Sage Mesa, Westwood, Red Wing and Husula Highlands consisting of approximately 1,000 homes contribute to the City of Penticton approximately $280,000 for ¿re protection and $50,000 for library every year. Another interesting fact is there are 1,000 homes in our area, and conservatively speaking there is an average of about $20,000 of disposable income from each home. This would equate to an economic bene¿t of about $20 million per year for goods and services purchased by our area in the City of Penticton. Ron Perrie Sage Mesa

Change needed at RDOS

Thank you Tom Siddon for running for director of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen in the Okanagan Falls area. The current RDOS dictatorship has got to go. The RDOS does not want anyone with cars or collectibles in their yard. I have friends who have been harassed by the current leadership for having a few cars in their yard, even though their homes are remote

ment staff — all of which cost money. The money in question is money that we, as a province, don’t have according to political pundits. Not only are there other world economies in dire straits, but also B.C. is facing some economic hardship. Hmm, I wonder why? Don’t suppose the Olympic funding had anything to do with the current economic tide, do you? Mr. Falcon’s cries of woe that the HST is no longer and that it put a large burden on the economics of B.C. have been heard around the province on several occasions. It begs the question be asked as to what happened to all of the

and away from public view. They also keep changing the rules for clean-up times. The RDOS has been giving themselves far too much power to control your private property. Too many men and women have fought and died for your freedom of rights and freedom of choice that includes your property rights. People live in the RDOS and not the city so they can have their treasures in their back yard. After all who really owns your property? The RDOS think they own your property to tell you what to do with it. How soon is it that anything without a licence plate must be removed from your property? The current RDOS is on a mission to clean house on all RDOS property, anything that is not under a roof has to go. Does private property no longer have any meaning? Thank God Tom Siddon is running for the director’s position in the Okanagan Falls area. Tom Siddon is more than quali¿ed for this position, not only because of a lifetime in politics, but Tom is also a car enthusiast with some of the ¿nest antique automobiles in B.C. and can relate to your property’s privacy and ownership. If you think you own your property and rights as private property, then a vote for Tom Siddon is a must. If you live in the Oliver area, then a vote for someone other than Allan Patton is a must. Government is obtaining far too much power, whereas the general public is losing far too many rights. It’s time to turn the tables Clifford Martin Penticton

Candidate will cost taxpayers

To quote Katie Robinson on running for mayor in the next election, “I simply got tired of cringing every time I opened the newspaper”. Every Penticton taxpayer should cringe when they think that Katie Robinson could be the next mayor of Penticton. Katie Robinson questions council’s decision to lay off some 30 city employees over the last two years. She goes on to state that we just got rid of 30 good paying jobs. If Katie Robinson cannot comprehend that the Penticton Taxpayers are the ones paying for the 30 good-paying jobs, then she has no right to receive a single vote from any Penticton taxpayer during the next election. Council made the right decision in following the recommendations of the report on the operations of the City of Penticton. Operating expenses were reduced by $2 to $2.5 million with the reduction in the workforce. Penticton taxpayers were probably faced with an additional six to eight per cent property tax increase if salaries and bene¿ts had not been reduced.

supposed dollars collected since the inception of the HST in July 2010. The ¿gure of $850 million has been proffered. Since the vestiges of the HST will be felt until 2014, how much more “revenue neutral” money will be collected? In light of the current economic global climate, I ¿nd it dif¿cult to believe that Ms. Clark’s job creation program will come to fruition now or in the near future. Once again, more rhetoric that has little or no substance to it. Oh well, nothing new, I guess, considering the source. Ron Barillaro Penticton

Katie Robinson then goes on to state that she wants to retain the ¿re dispatchers in Penticton, again at a great cost to the taxpayers of the City of Penticton. What will be the cost to the Penticton taxpayers, Katie Robinson? Katie Robinson has chosen to show her allegiance to the employees of the City of Penticton, and to hell with the Penticton taxpayers that are left paying the bills. Penticton taxpayers are probably faced with a 2012 property tax increase in the $2 million range just to fund the operations and debt obligations of the new swimming pool. Katie Robinson does not even mention this fact in her press release. How are you going to fund the swimming pool de¿cit Katie Robinson? If Penticton taxpayers want to return to property tax increases in the range of 10 to 20 per cent annually, then by all means vote for Katie Robinson and complain when you receive your 2012 property tax statements. Katie Robinson should be sent a message by the Penticton taxpayers that she has committed political suicide with her election platform. Penticton taxpayers need to send Katie Robinson a message that she should not quit her day job. Hopefully, Katie Robinson ¿nishes a distant third to Mr. Coyote in the mayoralty race. Ted Wiltse Penticton

Outraged by decision

I am outraged by the decision of Justice Peter Rogers to release Keith Wiens, a retired RCMP of¿cer charged with the murder of his wife, Lynn Kalmring, in their Penticton home on Aug. 16. It is disgusting that after only two weeks in custody, Wiens is back home in a luxurygated community with his brother for company and no real limits on his activities. Justice Rogers has stated “the criminal justice system views these matters differently than the person sitting across from you at Tim Hortons.” I can’t believe his arrogance. It’s time that our justice system reÀects our values. Lynn Kalmring’s children have lost the love and guidance of their mother, one of the most important things in life that can never be replaced. I feel sick when I think of the terror that Lynn must have felt in her last moments, and as a member of our community I demand justice for her and her family. I did not know Lynn but her story has touched my heart. Rest in peace Lynn, I will join the ¿ght for justice for your murder. Hanna Taylor Penticton

Keith Urban made it clear that Get Closer was more than just a name for his latest tour Saturday night, transforming word into action during his show at the South Okanagan Events Centre last Saturday. The Australian-born country star made a huge impression as he worked guitar, voice and crowd simultaneously, making it a memorable night for the 5,000 concert-goers packed into the SOEC. But for a few audience members, like Nikita Afonso, â&#x20AC;&#x153;memorableâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a strong enough word. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was incredible. Singing in front of thousands is one of my dreams and he made it come true,â&#x20AC;? said the 17-year-old Penticton musician. Afonso, along with classmate Ethan McCluskey and a girl from Kelowna, were singled out by Urban and asked to join him on stage. While it might seem like picking one of Pentictonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best young musicians out of the crowd was too perfect to be a coincidence, Afonso said it was just Urban getting involved with the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He would hold out the microphone to the crowd,â&#x20AC;? said Afonso, describing how Urban first pulled McCluskey up from one side of the stage, then the Kelowna girl from the other, before returning to the centre where she was sitting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was jumping up and down on my chair, holding a sign saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Kiss me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a girl,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Afonso. Her sign, referring to Urbanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hit, Kiss a Girl, was enough to draw his attention, and he called for the girl with the cowboy hat in the fourth row to join him on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just lost it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Once all three audience members were on stage, Urban got them singing and asked the audience to cheer for their favourite. Afonso won, earning her a chance to sing a duet with Urban.

NIKITA AFONSO, a Penticton singer, got the chance of a lifetime Saturday evening when Keith Urban invited her on stage to perform a duet.

was by far the biggest audience Afonso has ever faced, but she is by no means a stranger to the stage. Still in Grade 12, Afonso has been performing at venues around the city, busking in the Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market and even been featured in Kyle Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thursday night showcases. She started learning to play the guitar at age 11, winning talent contests both in school and out. Nor is she a stranger to Urbanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music. Country music, she said, is her favourite because it always tells some sort of a story or has a powerful message and she already covers a few of Urbanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs for her own shows. In fact, she had just sung one of them earlier on Saturday at the Wild West Fest in Okanagan Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do like his music a lot,â&#x20AC;? said Afonso, who had been telling her audience how excited she was to be going to Urbanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concert. Whether this event will be a trea-

sured memory or help the young musicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career is a question for the future, but Afonso has hopes that Urban or someone in the audience was thinking of her potential as they listened to her sing. And if making Afonsoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, Urban still had one more surprise for his audience up his sleeve. Later in the show, while singing on a small podium to one side of the main stage, Urban stepped into the audience, signing his guitar and presenting it to a 14-year-old audience member. According to Afonso, the young teen was shocked into disbelief. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was surprised and asking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What am I supposed to be doing with it? Just holding it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Afonso, who was amazed at how well Urban connected with the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every inch of the arena felt his love,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just getting to sing with him was enough.â&#x20AC;?

City steps up for the challenge Simone Blais Western News Staff

Step aside, Victoria: Penticton’s trail-blazing citizens wanted that $10,000 more than you. The city is celebrating this week after learning Penticton came out on top of the Healthy Families B.C. walking challenge for the population category from 25,001 to 100,000, held in September. B.C. residents were invited to visit a website where they could post stories and pictures detailing their favourite walking or hiking trails. Six individuals would win a weekend getaway for four to a B.C. destination. But each entry fell under the individual’s community, and a contest for municipal entries came with a big incentive: $10,000 for the community with the most entry postings to go toward trail building or maintenance. Karen Burley, Penticton’s deputy corporate of¿cer, said local enthusiasm for the contest picked up two weeks ago, when the city was randomly picked by the province to receive 100 pedometers. As she was ¿lling out the forms to accept the prize, she began reading about the contest details and ¿gured the Peach City had a good shot. “One week prior to that, we only had 13 entries,” she recalled. “I said we need to do something.” Burley contacted Bob Pope, a recreation co-ordinator who had recently overseen a successful walking program in town, to tap the community segment that had already embraced local trails. Together, they tagteamed contact lists to get the word out. “Bob started doing email blasts. From the administration side, I sent an email to all the staff. I also emailed some people who have signi¿cant connections,” Burley said, adding organizations connected to the city like the Downtown Penticton Business Association, South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services and Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce, “We started doing the rah-rah in the of¿ce. That’s when people would go up and ask, ‘Did you do your entry?’” she said. “From that initial blast,

within a day, we took the lead. That got everyone really ¿red up.” That wasn’t to say the entire path to the top was a cakewalk. Penticton’s population of just over 31,000 was a fraction of some communities in the same category taking part. “We promoted it as David vs. Goliath,” Pope said, adding Penticton was up against Victoria, which draws walkers year round and has a population of 100,000. “It was really exciting to see us kick butt.” The four other categories were also showing close races. “Meanwhile, Tumbler Ridge and HorseÀy were in a huge competition for those communities. So

you never know who will come up from the rear,” Burley said, adding they began targeting additional invites to running clubs, hiking groups and other ¿tness-related organizations to encourage people to post entries. And the contest became the of¿cial talk around municipal water coolers — with 75 entries coming in over the last weekend for the city’s ¿nal tally of 411. “Everyone pulled together. It was amazing on Tuesday morning and people emailing me and phoning: ‘Did we win? Did we win?’” she said with a laugh. “But when we looked at the difference between the two

communities, between us and Victoria, we ¿gured we stood a very good chance.” The contest closed at midnight on Sept. 20, and Burley was noti¿ed later that day. Penticton was joined by Tumbler Ridge, Quesnel, Esquimalt and Abbotsford as topping their respective population categories. Burley said the postings from the community were also a pleasure to read. While many people offered short and sweet comments about their favourite trail, some went into great detail about the seasons along Skaha Lake, the bustle of downtown and the views along the Kettle Valley Rail Trail. Some even offered pictures of the view “A walk along the channel seemed like a good idea. Well, here it is about 18 months later, and I’ve lost about 40 pounds, the dog can’t be happier and I feel like a million bucks. And I’ve worn out a couple pairs of shoes,” one resident wrote. “What a great feeling it is to walk along that channel, when there’s a bit of a breeze, the sky as blue as can be, and the temperature ideal.” Burley said staff learned a lot in the experience. “It was a real morale booster and community incentive. Everybody participated to make it successful,” she said. The ¿ve communities were entered to win a grand prize of $50,000 for local trails. The draw was scheduled to take place on Tuesday at 4 p.m., after deadline. “A one-in-¿ve chance is pretty good. We’re keep-

ing our ¿ngers crossed,” Burley said, adding Penticton can feel proud of its $10,000 prize regardless. “It’s just the power of what a community can do when they pull together.”

Penticton Western News Wednesday, September 28, 2011

City approves non-profit policy late last year that would require non-pro¿t groups to register with the city before opening their doors to the public. But a group of 13 churches in the area banded together to ¿ght the move. They posited that faith-based organizations are excluded from business de¿nitions under provincial and federal law, and such a change would make Penticton the ¿rst place in B.C. — if not the country — that would require churches to have a business licence. First Baptist Church’s senior pastor, Callum Jones, said the group consulted with city staff and Mayor Dan Ashton often to review progress since January. “It’s been a very helpful and constructive conversation to have,” he said. “The city was keen and desiring to ensure proper health and ¿re safety is maintained, particu-

Simone Blais Western News Staff

Local churches are pleased with Penticton’s new process for registering non-profits, after a nine-month debate about how best to keep track of non-business ventures within city limits. Penticton council passed three readings of the non-pro¿t regulation bylaw last week, paving the way for organizations to register with the city so the municipality can ensure compliance with relevant ¿re and life safety requirements. According to a staff report, business licences were the only way the city could previously keep track of organizations setting up shop in Penticton, and the city drafted revisions to the business licence bylaw

larly with new non-pro¿ts that move into the city. Initially that was going to be positioned under a business licence.” The resulting regulations fall in line with what church groups had been hoping to see, Jones said. “The intention is to ensure there are appropriate ways of enforcing ¿re and safety in buildings that non-pro¿ts use,” he said, an issue churches are “absolutely” in support of. “It’s been a good process. There’s been no major hiccup or anything.” Penticton city’s development services director Anthony Haddad wrote in his report that the proposed solution was “a more accommodating approach.” Council passed three readings unanimously.

Parking mishap claims man’s life Western News Staff

A Penticton man is dead after being run over in an open lot at the Okanagan Falls market. Penticton RCMP responded to a report of a traf¿c incident near an open lot on 9th Avenue at about 1 p.m. on Saturday. Mounties determined a 62-yearold Edmonton man was in the process of moving his vehicle within the lot when the vehicle reversed suddenly and struck a 64-year-old Penticton resident who was seated in a folding chair beside a food vendor’s trailer. The victim was transported to Penticton Regional Hospital where he died as a result of his injuries. Investigation of the incident by RCMP is ongoing and charges are pending against the driver. RCMP said alcohol and speed do not appear to be a factor. Next of kin have been noti¿ed but the victim’s name is being withheld at this time pending further noti¿cation of other family members.

Groups net tax relief Simone Blais

Western News Staff

Penticton council served up some tax relief to local non-pro¿t organizations hungry for a break. Each year, municipalities can exempt land or improvements from taxation, provided applicants can illustrate they would realize a ¿nancial hardship if the permissive tax exemption was not endorsed. Penticton’s revenue supervisor Angela Campbell explained to council last week that ¿rst priority goes to groups showing a working capital of $100,000 or less, which is considered the threshold for possible ¿nancial hardship without tax relief. Each applicant must submit an application that includes ¿nancial information and proof the organization is in good standing with the Society Act. Other organizations can be approved if their working capital exceeds $100,000, but ¿nancial need must still be documented. This year, there were ¿ve new applications from local groups seeking tax exemptions: the B.C. Wine Information Centre, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Nelson for Birthright of Penticton Society, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce and the Penticton Kiwanis Housing Society. In total, staff recommended 47 be approved, and the value of the exemption for land or improvements works out to $381,458.76. All told, there were 25 organizations in the community that were not recommended by staff to receive the permissive tax exemption, mostly as a result of no ¿nancial need. Those totalled $128,239.42. Council unanimously approved the permissive tax exemptions to qualifying organizations.

Princeton area residents decided the time is not right for construction of an aquatic centre, voting it down in a referendum on Saturday. While the vote amongst Princeton residents saw those against construction only receive 33 more votes than the yes side (474 yes to 507 no), Area H resoundingly defeated the bylaw to authorize the regional district to borrow $6 million to construct the aquatic centre, with 269 yes votes to 968 no votes. The outcome is not surprising to Area H Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen director Brad Hope. “I went all through Area H to talk to people and found very few that didn’t think they could support the centre, they just didn’t feel satis¿ed with the referendum and the process. It wasn’t that they were against Princeton having an aquatic centre, or that they were against contributing. I think it was the referendum and the way it was set out that was unacceptable. The information that was given, the voting procedure, the numbers seemed to keep changing, the whole thing. I think many people that really wanted it agreed it was rushed to try and get it through before the elections so it wouldn’t become an election issue. Of course, it will now.” Hope said he was for postponing the referendum throughout the process because it left many questions unanswered for the voters. “I thought it was unfair to the electorate. Generally you would like to go into a referendum with a pretty clear picture,” he said. “It’s a lot of money and a large tax increase, and those things have to be worked out before you go to referendum, not after.” The total cost of the project was estimated to

be just over $9.3 million, with about $3 million subsidized through grants and donations. Hope said a number of unknowns may have been what killed the yes vote including costs, land issues and other things. “It doesn’t have to be sold, people know the bene¿ts of an aquatic centre. What has to be sold is the information, support from industries and knowing what grants are available. If, or when, it goes forward again we will have to come with a package that is really complete and understandable. If we can do that, I don’t think we would have a problem,” said Hope. Princeton Mayor Randy McLean said the people have spoken, but thinks the referendum process itself is a confusing one that may have turned many voters off. The referendum question referred to a $361 increase in taxes but McLean said the true cost would have been $250. “We meet with the premier on Wednesday and it is going to be one of the things I say to her, that she should have somebody look at the referendum process,” said McLean, who is at UBCM meetings this week. “If you are wanting all referendums to fail you have some good policy in there for that, because it is really dif¿cult to get things to pass when you have to try and explain to people these numbers and how they don’t really represent what they will really have to pay.” Plans for the pool facility were designed for a four-lane, 25-metre lap pool, a warm water leisure pool with water sprays, a tot slide and a lazy river, a whirlpool and change rooms. The proposed site for the pool was adjacent to the Riverside Centre. Acting spokesperson for the aquatic facility committee, Lyle Thomas, said the outdoor pool has limited life left and bandaid solutions have been

Weather melts records

Western News Staff

Penticton’s last great stand in summer weather may have gone out with a record-breaking bang. Residents who felt a bit Àustered on Saturday were right if they thought things were a bit hotter than usual, as Environment Canada con¿rms a record was

broken for high-Àying temperatures. On Sept. 24, Penticton airport measured the temperature at 32.3 C — blasting the previous bar of 27.8 C set on the same date in 1967. “On the 24th, it was 32.3, which is the all-time record for that day,” meteorologist Doug Lundquist said. Penticton wasn’t the only Okanagan

town with stiÀing temperatures. Kelowna broke a record having a 30-degree temperature six days later than ever before, and Coldstream Ranch near Vernon hit the 30s three days later than ever before in September. While soggy weather seems to have set in, Lundquist said there’s a small chance Mother Nature may be looking to

serve up one last side of summer. “In October, you can pretty much guarantee you won’t see 30,” he said. “There’s a slight chance that it might happen. The ridge is going to try and build back and if it does, if there’s the right kind of wind, it might. I’m crossing my ¿ngers we can do it, but it’s a one-ina-million shot.”

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Penticton Western News BREAKING NEWS: Gold is at a record high!

THE ROADSHOW HAS FINALLY ARRIVED IN PENTICTON!! By: Michael Ross Great Canadian Roadshow

A

fter a successful week in Vernon, the roadshow has arrived in Penticton! So you better search through your attics and basements, go through your lock boxes and jewelry, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold, and silver. During our show in Truro, a woman came in with a jewelry box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear jewelry,â&#x20AC;? explained Cheryl Barnes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell itâ&#x20AC;?. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for jewelry she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Cliff Edwards explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently trading at. He added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Roadshow is great because it puts money in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewelry boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot! â&#x20AC;?. At another Roadshow event, a woman walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her DVD\RXQJFKLOGE\KHUJUDQGIDWKHU6KHÂżQDOO\GHFLGHG to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, some of which were extremely rare. Roadshow consultant Raymond Flack explains â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She also had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver contentâ&#x20AC;?. All in all, Roadshow customer Linda Donaldson was able to cash in with $4,500! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Linda explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never would have thought WKDWP\ROGWLQRIFRLQVZDVZRUWKVRPXFK,FDQÂżQDOO\ afford to renovate my kitchen.â&#x20AC;? Raymond Flack continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value.â&#x20AC;?

A variety of collectibles bought in previous shows.

Lakers hone skills for season opener

The Place For New Beginnings 960 Railway St., Penticton Ph: 250-492-3576

Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

After going 3-0 on Friday of their host tournament, the Pen High Lakers senior boys volleyball team finished third. This was a result that coach Scott Harkness felt was “alright.” The Lakers lost to the Mt. Boucherie Bears in the semifinal, which then pitted them against Vernon Secondary School Panthers a second time. “They have a good team that was able to capitalize on our many mistakes,” said Harkness of the Bears. “All we were looking for was getting some of their rust off. See where we stood with some of the other teams in the province.” The Lakers home tournament, which wrapped up Saturday, allowed them to find some skills that they need to hone. An area Harkness aimed to focus on for two days of practice is passing. He feels their passing limited them and it was obvious against the Bears, who they meet again at Pen High this evening. “Some of the other teams, we could get away with mistakes, but against a top-10 team like

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK Ty Moorman, a middle blocker for the Pen High Lakers volleyball team, impressed coach Scott Harkness during their first tournament on home court. Moorman received all-star honours as he made several key blocks and was vital on the attack. This season he would like to improve his passing and hopes to eventually move into the power position.

The hosts won the match in two games to take third spot overall. Kelowna Secondary won the championship game against Mount Boucherie.

Mount Boucherie, we can’t make mistakes,” he said. “You pass the ball over and you get no offence going. It’s going to come back to you pretty hard.” The Lakers coaches also emphasized for players to get as many

touches on the ball as possible. Harkness said that not only is the first game important, but all league games are. “That’s what’s going to dictate where you stand in the valleys and how you are going to be ranked coming into pro-

vincials,” he said, as his Lakers are currently No. 4, while Mount Boucherie earned an honourable mention. The Lakers roster has also has been challenged by the injury to captain Ethan McCluskey is out for three weeks.

“It’s high stakes and it’s good because they have some expectations,” said Harkness. “Now they are Grade 12s and are expected to win. It’s good to see that they’re not going to walk through the entire province and just stomp everybody.”

A message has been sent by the BCHL when it comes to headshots. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tolerate and the precedent was set with Penticton Vees captain Logan Johnston getting a 20-game suspension. For those who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take in the Sept. 17 exhibition game between the Vees and Coquitlam Express, Johnston took exception to a slash to teammate and went after Cody Michelle, an Express forward. Grant Kerr, a retired journalist and an assistant coach for the Express, mentioned the incident in his Behind the Bench article on the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnston was involved in an ugly incident in the third period

aging line. Johnston showed early last season he can be a threat offensively. In the first 15 games, the six-footone, 208-pound winger was second on the team in points with 12. He finished with 32 points in 56 games. Once Johnston returns to action, hopefully he will send shock waves throughout the league as he proves just how good he can be. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate is it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear that teams in the league have learned from this or got the memo from the BCHL. In the Veesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second game against the Chilliwack Chiefs, the game sheet shows that Chiefs forward Spencer Graboski was given a two-minute penalty and a misconduct for a blow to the head. Late in the third period, Vees defenceman Kyle Beaulieu is guilty of the same thing. The same problem is happening in the NHL. Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman James Wisniewski will miss eight games for a check-to-the-head. Buffalo Sabres forward Brad Boyes has been suspended. Players cannot use the excuse that they are getting caught in the heat of the moment to justify their actions. When will more respect be shown?

SOYSA had 2,300 kids registered and this fall they will have a full district program for under-11 to 18. The academy signup deadline is Sept. 30.

cal coach Marco van Lochem. “We believe the Dutch are playing some of the best soccer in world,” said Patrocinio. “He has a connection there. That avenue will open up for our kids to go there.” With the academy, SOYSA is targeting its competitive players who will be able to enhance their skills through team and personal training, as well as in class. Players can register for one day or as many as five depending on their goals. The idea is to improve all aspects of the players’ game. Their goal with the academy is to model the Okanagan Hockey Academy. Cremers said they don’t want to mimic that, but feel they can have a similar blueprint because of the facilities. “We have the passionate coaches,” he said. “We have the vision that Penticton one

Passionate soccer people and great soccer facilities lured Ezra Cremers to Penticton. The former executive director and head coach of the Shuswap Football Club fled to the Okanagan for those two reasons. He will take on the same role, replacing former technical director Chris Bennett, who returned to the Lower Mainland. Cremers likes the people and the board of SOYSA, and feels there are good coaches to develop players for the club. He also likes the possibilities with the Adidas Sportsplex and King’s Park. SOYSA wants to be able to provide the sport to kids year round. They also want to have solid coaches and have someone who can teach their coaches to become better. “Without that you

He was young and fresh. We thought that would be someone to take our club in the direction we want to go in.” Patrocinio said SOYSA wants to set up an academy and Cremers has the experience to do that. Cremers runs Ezra Soccer, which involves three levels: Ezra Soccer School, Ezra Soccer Academy and Ezra Soccer Excelsior. They also like his background with Dutch soccer.

Realizing they needed to bolster their defence, the Penticton Vees have traded 1991-born forward Mike Moran to the Victoria Grizzlies for defenceman Nick Buchanan. “We believe Nick Buchanan will add size and experience to our Dcore,” said Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson. Unfortunately, we had to part ways with a quality player in Mike Moran to make this deal happen.” The six-footthree, 205-pound Victoria native played 60 games last season, scoring three goals and collecting 20 points.

City of Chicago/GRC

SOME OF THE MOST breathtaking cityscape views are found in Chicago with the Willis Tower Skydeck and sweeping city views from the gigantic ferris wheel at historic Navy Pier on Lake Michigan.

Plenty to do in the Windy City Breathtaking views, amazing architecture, a gigantic ferris wheel and much more — it’s no wonder why so many people fall in love with Chicago. Start your trip out with the best views of the city, which are 412 metres or 103 Àoors up on the Skydeck Willis Tower — formerly known as the Sears Tower. The iconic building is the tallest in the Western Hemisphere. Its 103rd Àoor glass viewing platform, known as The Ledge, attracts more than 1.3 million visitors every year. The best time to visit is just after opening or after 5 p.m. For more information visit www.theskydeck.com. After taking in the magni¿cent views prepare to hit the vibrant retail scene. The city is home to more than 250 Chicago-based fashion designers and 400 independently owned boutiques. A Chicago shopping spree must include a visit to the famed Magni¿cent Mile along Michigan Avenue from the Chicago River to Oak Street. Located on the mile are Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s alongside hundreds of specialty shops and boutiques. On nearby Oak Street is an international selection of apparel from Paris, Milan, New York and local selections from Chicago. This street is lined with

intimate buildings and shops including Prada, Nicole Miller and more. State Street is in the heart of the loop, with Àagship Macy’s. The store is an architectural and historical marvel with 10 Àoors of shopping. If shopping is not your thing, there are plenty of other activities to choose from, including ballet, baseball, classical music, modern architecture to museums. Sports nuts can take in a history of outstanding athletes by visiting the iconic Michael Jordan statue outside United Center, watch the Bears play on the lakefront in the dazzling combination of traditional and modern architecture that is Soldier Field or visit one of the oldest parks in the National League where the Cubs play in Wrigley Field. Glorious Navy Pier is also a perfect example of Chicago’s glittering attractions. Visitors will enjoy more than 50 acres of parks. Each season offers great reasons to go a little overboard — from the thrilling 150foot ferris wheel and AeroBalloon experience to special events like the Chicago Flower and Garden Show and Winter WonderFest. When it’s time to give your feet a break, stop by the iconic Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain. The major display occurs every hour

for 20 minutes and sprays water to a height of 150 feet from the ground. At dusk, the fountain’s water display is accompanied by a light and music display. Don’t worry about going hungry while in Chicago. You could eat at a different restaurant every day for 20 years and never eat at the same one twice. With more than 7,300

Bi-weekly payments shown are based on 84-month terms. Variable rate shown is based on TD, RBC and Scotiabank Prime Rate and fluctuates accordingly. Payments and financing term may increase or decrease with rate fluctuations.TD offer is not open to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, Yukon, Nunavut and Northwest Territories. Some conditions apply. See participating dealers for complete details. ††Customer Choice Financing for 36-, 48- and 60-month terms on approved credit through TD Financing Services and Ally Credit Canada is available at participating dealerships to qualified retail customers on select new 2011 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram models. Taxes on the full negotiated purchase price are payable at the beginning of the contract term resulting in higher payments than payments taxed on a periodic basis and are not reflected in advertised payments. The following terms apply to TD Financing Services contracts. (Different contract terms apply to Ally Credit Canada offers. See your dealer for complete details.) Vehicles are financed over a 36-, 48- or 60-month term with payments amortized over a term of up to 96 months and the pre-determined residual balance payable at the end of the contract. At contract’s end, customers have the choice of returning their vehicle through a Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram dealership with no further obligations (except payment of a $199 return fee and excess wear and tear, mileage and similar charges), financing the remaining balance for the rest of the amortization period at then-current standard rates or paying the residual balance in full. Some conditions apply. Customer Choice Financing offered by TD in Quebec is subject to different terms and conditions. All advertised Customer Choice Financing offers are TD offers. Example: 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (26E) with a Purchase Price of $37,998 financed at 1.99% APR over 60 months with payments amortized over 79 months equals 130 bi-weekly payments of $237 and one final payment of $9,595 for a cost of borrowing of $2,415 and a total obligation of $40,413. Taxes, licence, insurance, registration, excess mileage and wear and tear charges, any dealer administration fees and other applicable fees and charges not included. Dealers may sell for less.

14 vehicle theft reports - RCMP have responded to a series of thefts of mid- to late- 1980s Volkswagen cars, with four stolen this month throughout the city. One of these vehicles was located within Penticton city boundaries while another was recovered in the Lower Mainland. 13 commercial B&Es - Businesses in Penticton's industrial area, including City Yards and Nedco, were broken into this month with copper wire targeted. Over the weekend of August 27th to 29th a forklift was stolen from Wal-Kat and used to ram a fence at Kal Tire. The suspects then made off with over $20,000.00 worth of tires from the business. These incidents are currently under investigation.

A Penticton woman’s tale of incredible faith will be recounted in a televised interview set for early October. A family friend has con¿rmed that Rita Chretien has conducted an exclusive interview for Context with Lorna Dueck, a half-hour television program to be aired on both Vision and Global TV networks. “The program is about world news from a Christian perspective,” the friend said. “She (Chretien) wanted her story to not focus attention on herself, but on the goodness of God and why she got through it that way.” Chretien and her husband, Albert, were on their way to Las Vegas in mid-March when they were reported missing. A massive search was conducted for the couple, who were travelling in a Chevy Astro van, which was spotted seven weeks later by hunters outside Elko County, Nev. The Penticton couple’s van had become stuck along a Nevada forestry road, and Albert went out on March 22 to get help and has not been seen since. Rita subsisted for seven weeks on snacks, candy and melted snow before being located. She was taken to hospital in Twin Falls, Idaho, in fair condition before being transferred to Penticton Regional Hospital. She has since been released. The family friend said Chretien is still quite “fragile” and didn’t want to be subjected to a barrage of phone calls from various media outlets, but agreed to speak with Dueck — one journalist she said Rita had “long admired.” Dueck and her crew arrived in Penticton last week to conduct the interview. “Lorna’s a really gentle, sweet soul. Lorna investigates in a kind, gentle way,” she said. The interview will be broadcast on Oct. 9.

15 residential B&Es - On August 3rd RCMP responded to a report of a home invasion on Dawson Ave. A suspect had entered the residence and hit the lone occupant with the butt end of a machete before stealing an iPhone and departing. He was located and arrested soon afterwards. The suspect, a 21 year old male, is a known prolific property offender. He is currently in custody awaiting court. 5 robberies - On August 1st RCMP responded to a report that a taxi driver had just been robbed of cash by a fare who had threatened him with a needle which he said was contaminated with HIV. The suspect was given $160 before he fled on foot. On August 5th RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at Booster Juice in Cherry Lane Mall. A lone male suspect entered the business and demanded cash before departing on foot. He was described as 6' tall with a thin build and wearing a hoodie with abstract markings and blue jeans. His face was covered. Three other reports were received during the month of July involving strong-arm style robberies without weapons. The Penticton RCMP continues to investigate these incidents.

The most critical period of human development is from conception to age six. The quality of a young child’s life and early experiences has lifelong effects. By learning more about this important time in a child’s life, parents and caregivers can help to ensure that every child thrives. Communities for Kids can help. In partnership with Success by 6 and the Osoyoos Indian Band, Communities for Kids will be holding its seventh annual Parenting Conference at Sen Pok Chin School in Oliver on Oct. 22. The conference is an opportunity for parents and care givers to ¿nd answers to such questions as: What do I do when my child throws a tantrum in the grocery store; how can I ¿nd the right day care for my child; and how can I help to prevent bullying. The day-long conference offers parents and caregivers of children up to six years of age the choice of three workshops from a total of 12 fascinating and helpful early childhood topics, led by dynamic experts from various ¿elds of early childhood development. Angela Roy, a performing artist and educator who explores and studies various arts, will present the keynote address on “It Takes a Rhythm to Raise a Child”. She will also lead two workshops. Angela is a recipient of the Prime Minister Award for Excellence in Education and Development for her work with children and families, and maintains that through the pathways of the arts we build community and promote wellness.
