More Than One Way Home, Part 10: Rejoicin' it!

Kenny Wayne was eight years old when he started playing the piano in his father's church in San Francisco.

          Today he's an international touring and recording artist, garnering awards and accolades like this one in The Chicago Sun-Times:

          "There is no boogie-woogie artist out there today who can pound the keys with the conviction of Kenny Wayne."

          For Kenny, that conviction grew out of a belief that music and the church have always meant the same thing: Rejoicing.

          Daybreak's Madonna Hamel recently visited Kenny Wayne in his new home in Kelowna.

They did not come to party; they came to destroy and they left $20,000 damage after 100 people crashed a teenager's party in Kelowna last Saturday night. Police say word of the gathering spread on Facebook.

Katie Poppy and her partner were skiing at Big White at the time and were called home early to a house that was severely damaged.

Their teenage son has some explaining to do.

Chris Walker also spoke with Susan Foisy, a family support worker with the Bridge Youth and Family Services group in Kelowna about how to prevent these devastating events.

It's the first time any one can remember the Salmon Arm RCMP holding a meeting where they invited everyone in the community.

Parents, children, seniors and anyone who was interested were invited to learn about the area's illegal drug problem.

Police wanted to teach people about the drug issues, what they are doing about it and what the community can do to help law enforcement officials deal with the problem. 

Daybreak's Leah Shaw was one of the 75 people who showed up.
