MLA defends teachers’ right to action RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster isn’t criticizing teachers for pulling out of after-hours programs. Teachers in the Vernon School District will withdraw from extracurricular activities to protest the government’s back-to-work legislation. “It’s disappointing but it’s a volunteer thing and no one says teachers have to go beyond their contract,” said Foster of helping with sports teams and clubs. “A lot of teachers feel bad but

“No one says teachers have to go beyond their contract.” — Eric Foster they have to do what they believe they have to do. My friends who are teachers don’t want to hurt students and they’re getting a lot of rhetoric from their union.” The government’s legislation was expected to be adopted into law Thursday.

Under Bill 22, the government will be able to name a mediator to settle the dispute with the B.C. Teachers Association, but Victoria’s mandate of net-zero for wages must be adhered to. “Every other government union has settled for net-zero and the

BCTF will have to do the same,” said Foster, adding the government is willing to discuss issues surrounding class size and composition. Foster says the government had no choice but to bring debate of the bill to an end because NDP opposition members were grandstanding. “They asked how much the government and union spent on sandwiches (at meetings). It’s a total waste of time,” he said. “Get up and ask questions. Bring forward constructive amendments and we’ll look at them. Just

don’t say something over and over again.” The official opposition defends its actions in the Legislature. “This bill gives up on the future, gives up on the possibility of doing it better, gives up on our public schools,” said Adrian Dix, NDP leader, in the House. “We will not support legislation that hurts class size provisions. We will not support legislation that hurts class composition provisions. We will not support legislation that puts an end to real mediation and imposes a disrespectful process on teachers.”

City puts revitalization plans before 30th Avenue merchants RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Revitalization of the last remaining section of Vernon’s main street could move ahead. The city will ask property owners on 30th Avenue, from 33rd to 35th streets, if they are willing to pay for improvements such as decorative sidewalks, twinkle lights, street furniture and light posts. The cost would be $450 per metre of frontage. “We need a vision for the community and main street as a whole,� said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. It’s expected the total project cost will be about $1.1 million, with the property owners contributing $240,000 and the city paying $860,000 for landscaping and road

“Yes, they will pay some of it, but other businesses paid more.� — Juliette Cunningham and utility infrastructure. Other sections of 30th Avenue went through revitalization years ago but an attempt to get property owner support between 33rd and 35th streets failed in 2002. However, the city was recently approached by some merchants who want to see if opinions have changed among property owners.

Councillors Bob Spiers and Juliette Cunningham were opposed to surveying the property owners. Cunningham doesn’t believe it’s fair the city will pay for trees, shrubs and landscaping when it didn’t do that during the other revitalization projects. “The merchants on 30th Avenue, east of 32nd Street, will be paying

until 2017 for some improvements and now we’re asking for taxpayers to pay in these other blocks,� she said. “This looks like business assist. Yes, they will pay some of it, but other businesses paid more.� Staff insists bylaws have changed over the years and the city’s willingness to cover some landscaping costs is consistent with current policies. Coun. Patrick Nicol defends the process. “There is a community value to downtown looking vibrant. They (property owners) will pay substantial costs here,� he said. “These are tough economic times and I give them credit for looking to the future.�

Search on for invasive squirrels Morning Star Staff

MAGNIFICENTFRIGATEBIRD PHOTO

Okanagan residents are being asked to report sightings of the eastern grey squirrel, an invasive species. said Larsen. “The problem is that we probably won’t fully appreciate the impact these animals will have on the local environment until it is too late to stop it.” Some people may question the impact of a new squirrel when there is already a species of squirrel native to the Okanagan. “Our native red squirrel doesn’t do all that well in residential or agricultural landscapes, because it’s really

tailored to living in conifer forests. Also, they are incredibly territorial, so the density of these animals never gets very high,” said Larsen. “However, grey squirrels are a different beast. They do well in human-dominated landscapes, and they tolerate one another much more so. If they get fully established, there will be a lot more squirrels living with us in our cities and rural areas. If given a chance, they will spread like wildfire.”

In other regions, like England and Italy, where eastern grey squirrels have established populations, native species have been decimated, crops have been affected, nd buildings have been damaged by nesting. In California, they are known to damage fruit. A group of local wildlife professionals, including Larsen, have created an initiative to get a grasp on the situation in the Okanagan. Their goal is to raise awareness and to get the public involved in the first ever squirrel count. “It is essential that we find out how many animals are living in the Okanagan already if we stand a chance to deal with the potential problem,” said Larsen. “We ask that everyone visit the website, www.introsquirrel.ca, to learn how to identify these squirrels and tell them apart from our native red squirrels, and to report any eastern grey squirrels that they’ve seen.” To report a grey squirrel sighting, go to www.introsquirrel.ca or call 1-855-4687077.

The North Okanagan is being invaded. There is growing concern the eastern grey squirrel is gaining a presence in the Okanagan, displacing indigenous animals and posing a threat to crops and property. “The eastern grey squirrel is one of the most notorious alien species in the world and ranked by a branch of the World Conservation Union as one of the top one 100 invasive species on the planet,” said Karl Larsen, a wildlife ecology and management professor at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. “This is a serious issue facing everyone.” Eastern grey squirrels are native to the eastern part of North America, and they were introduced to Vancouver’s Stanley Park a century ago. In recent decades, their population has increased in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island. Now, they have been found in the Interior and particularly Kelowna. “How they got here is unknown, but they’re here,”

Some Vernon politicians aren’t convinced a protest again smart meters will be effective. A group known as Citizens for Safe Technology has asked the city to prohibit B.C.

Pearson also says it could cost $1 billion to install meters in B.C. “We can’t afford a program that has no benefit.” The city will discuss the request for a ban March 26, but a decision could take some time. “There are two sides to that one,” said Coun. Brian Quiring of the potential impact of smart meters. “I appreciate their concerns (Citizens for Safe Technology) but we need to educate ourselves on the other side.”

Court resumes at 10 a.m. today in the case of a former Vernon teacher and viceprincipal accused of having a sexual relationship with a former student between 2002 and 2004. The case against Deborah Louise Ashton, 47, took an unscheduled break Thursday afternoon. Reasons for the break are unclear. With a witness on the stand, Crown counsel Neil Flanagan finished his questions just after noon Thursday. Ashton’s lawyer, Terry La Liberte, asked judge Alison Beames if they could take the lunch break, which she granted, stating matters would resume at 2 p.m. With a large crowd in the gallery waiting for proceedings to start, the afternoon session began at 2:45 p.m. with La Liberte asking to meet the judge in camera to discuss what he termed a security matter. The court was cleared and, just after 3 p.m., a Supreme Court sheriff announced to the crowd court was adjourned until 10 a.m. Friday. Neither side would comment on the delays, with La Liberte stating the matter was in camera. Prior to the lunch break, the witness, a staff member at a Vernon elementary school – the same one Ashton and the alleged victim worked at and attended – told Flanagan that her son was on the Grade 7 school basketball team with the alleged victim, the team Ashton coached, and that she “often saw” Ashton with the alleged victim and his three closest friends “in school, her vehicle and in classrooms.” “My own son did things with this group and Ms. Ashton,” she said. “They were all on the basketball team, but they did things outside of school. They went to the movies with Ms. Ashton in her vehicle.” The witness said the following year, she would go to watch her son playing Grade 8 basketball at a Vernon secondary school, on the same team again as the alleged victim, and that she ran into Ashton at

“Why I said what I said before, I have no idea.” — Friend “maybe three, four or five games.” “I can’t really remember how many games I saw her at,” said the witness. “We’d see each other and we’d greet each other.” She also testified there were two occasions in the Grade 7 year when she went to deliver messages to Ashton in her classroom – something she said was part of her job responsibilities for all teachers at the school – and found her doors locked. On both occasions, said the witness, she heard noise coming from the room but couldn’t discern what the noise was. She said on one occasion, Ashton answered the door and the witness gave her a message. “There may have been a couple of boys in there, maybe because of the noise level, but I’m not sure who they were,” she said. On the other occasion, nobody answered at Ashton’s classroom and she left a “sticky note” on the door. “Were the classrooms regularly locked?” asked Flanagan. “I don’t recall ever having to knock on a door before,” said the woman. Before she took the stand, La Liberte poked away at the testimony of another of the alleged victim’s close friends, now 22 and who can’t be named. The friend said Ashton took him to her home in Grade 7 and watched a movie in her bedroom with Ashton’s two kids. Her ex-husband wasn’t home. After the movie, the friend said Ashton took him into the kitchen to have a personal conversation. “She was telling me she has a great burden on her, and there were tears in her eyes,” he said. “I was trying to get her to

tell me but she wouldn’t.” The friend said Ashton never did reveal the great burden and that he had to look up what the word burden meant after she drove him home that night. It was one of “three-to-five” personal conversations the friend said he had with Ashton. La Liberte pointed out that in his original statement to the police, the witness said he went for coffee with Ashton to a coffee house and that she broke down in tears in front of a group of people. “You gave police this story about her sitting down in front of people weeping about a great burden. “That’s quite a story,” said La Liberte. “It was true at the time,” stated the witness. “It’s too long ago to remember it as I remember it right now. That conversation happened in her house in her kitchen. Why I said what I said before, I have no idea.” La Liberte asked the witness if he had a crush on Ashton. “As a Grade 7 boy’s mind, I would say I had a crush. As a 22-year-old man today, I would say no,” said the witness, who was asked by La Liberte to clarify his answer. “In Grade 7 she was the only girl/ woman I hung out with. I didn’t hang out with other girls so it would be common to say I had a crush.” La Liberte asked the witness if the crush continued on to Grade 8 and about the boy making a lot of phone calls to Ashton’s house. “Were you told to stop making the calls?” asked La Liberte. “I don’t remember, it was too long ago,” said the witness. Ashton has pleaded not guilty to five counts in this her second trial on the matter. Her first trial last year resulted in a hung jury. Beames is hearing this case alone. The trial is expected to continue through next week, and closing submissions may happen the week of March 27.

Spring in your step

W

hile traces of the season still litter the ground, the dark days of winter are over. Technically, we haven’t escaped winter’s grasp yet – March 20 marks the official first day of spring. But last weekend’s time change is definitely helping us spring ahead to a brighter season. It’s amazing how that one extra hour of daylight can make such Jennifer Smith a difference. We’re no longer fumbling for our keys in the dark of night after work, only to return home where we depressingly slump ourselves onto the couch. Now this extra daylight affords us more time to play outside with the kids, go for a walk or get some outdoor house or yard work done. It’s also anticipated, that with the additional daylight, and maybe even some Vitamin D, the season will add a little spring into your step. We all get a little depressed and grumpy as the last few winter months seem to drag out over an eternity. The combination of a lack of sunlight, less activity and fewer social outings contribute to the winter blahs. We are sick and tired, in some cases quite literally, of winter. And we might find ourselves taking our personal frustrations out on others, not realizing how hurtful or damaging our words and attitudes can be to others. For some it’s a lack of serotonin that spring will eventually reverse, while winter can be significantly more depressing for those suffering from seasonal affective dis-

order. Whatever shade your winter blues are, I do have faith that spring will help take the chill off. Along with the extra daylight, spring affords us a renewed sense of optimism. It gives us something to look forward to as we enroll the kids in sports, plan a family camping trip and/or eagerly await the warm rays of summer. In general, we start looking on the brighter side of life. Heck, I’ve even got hope that the teachers and government can come to an agreement. On second thought, that might be a little too optimistic. Now maybe I see life through rosecoloured glasses, but I do believe that we can’t go through life as pessimists. And one might even say I am the pot calling the kettle black, as I’ve had more than my fair share of negative days. While I may not always see the bright side of life, I have to keep reminding myself that life goes on and it’s my choice how I lead it. Yes, life is going to throw some curve balls and make some obviously unfair calls, but we must keep swinging. And if you’re not having fun trying, then what’s the point in playing. We have to make the most of our lives – both the good and the bad. Try and laugh off the moments that get your blood curdling and let bygones be bygones (once again I’m guilty of too often letting what others say or do eat me up inside). Do something that makes you smile, and share that smile with someone else – it could be contagious. Before long, we might all regain that longlost spring in our step.

If you listen to VernonMonashee MLA Eric Foster, the opposition was thumbing its nose at due process during debate on legislation forcing teachers back to work. “They asked how much the government and union spent on sandwiches (at meetings). It’s a total waste of time,” he said of an example of the NDP needlessly dragging out the proceedings. “Get up and ask questions. Bring forward constructive amendments and we’ll look at them. Just don’t say something over and over again.” Obviously NDP MLAs — like politicians of any stripe — were taking advantage of the situation. By hammering away at the government, they garnered media coverage and they made points with their traditional labour supporters. However, Foster’s suggestion that the NDP, “bring forward constructive amendments and we’ll look at them,” needs to be scrutinized further. Specifically, the Liberal government showed little interest in finding middle ground in its dispute with teachers. It stated categorically that there wouldn’t be any wage increase and Bill 22 imposes conditions for class size and composition (special needs support). Allowing everyone to have their say is a legitimate component of democracy, but obviously the Liberals grew weary of being challenged so they brought debate to a premature end. Not only does that smack of arrogance, it indicates the government was not interested in finding middle ground. In the end, Foster was right. NDP MLAs were playing games on the floor of the Legislature, but the reality shows they weren’t the only ones.

Agency appeals for advocacy

M

r. Foster, I am the executive director of the Family Resource Centre Society for the North Okanagan and I am writing this letter requesting your help in righting a government wrong. Our agency has been in existence since 1992 and offers counselling, support and psychoeducational groups to those in our community who are unable to access these supports in any other way. Typically, our clients are unable to avail themselves of other government programs to help them as they do not qualify or are unable to afford the costs associated. It is important to add that our agency is the only facility in the region to offer certain specific counselling services; among them post-partum depression counselling and support, as well as sexual abuse recovery program for men. For these programs, we find that government agencies NO AGE RAISE I'm writing this letter in regards to the Harper government (which is apparently what he wants to have it referred to) wanting to raise the Old Age Security Pension from age 65 to 67. I think it is absolutely outrageous that they would even consider this. When one stops and thinks about the golden pensions that our MPs look forward to and the absolute waste of taxpayers money that goes to our senators, it is unfair to think that the little guy should have to work another two years longer so he can receive his well deserved pension. I called Colin Mayes office to voice my displeasure and was given a number in Ottawa to call. This number is 1-866-5994999. I urge everyone to call this number and ask to speak to their member of Parliament and voice their opinion. It is our democratic right. Roger Westlake

refer clients to us for these specialized services despite the fact they do not help fund us in these efforts. The staff of 24 works in 12 programs and six groups helping thousands of people in the Greater Vernon area on their path to wellness. It is unfortunate that I have to rely on the dedication of the counsellors and support staff to continue to work within our agency, while knowing their RED HERRINGS When I went to school, I learned about something called a red herring, something meant to pull your attention away from the real issue. It's kind of like the recent appearance of attack ads, paid for by Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberal Party. I'm deeply disappointed to see ads that do nothing to let us know what the Liberals intend to do about the issues dear to the hearts of B.C. people. They don't give any new ideas or positive solutions for us to consider. What is truly disappointing is the government will probably find ways to spend public dollars, our tax dollars, on election-style ads extolling the virtues of the current government's record. That may be a hard sell with the HST. The Legislative session recently opened. Ladies and gentlemen of the assembly, please focus on the issues. I'm tired of question period

government paid counterparts at Interior Health, Ministry of Child and Family and the school counselling arm of the school district receive at least 25 per cent more in salary and benefits. If our agency has the opportunity to work with clients presenting mental health issues, at first recognition, we are able to save the government thousands of dollars by giving clients skills and strategies to cope with their resembling a pack of snapping, howling dogs. Like the red herring, after a while it just stinks. Murray August OIL TRAFFIC Moving oil by pipeline or tanker will produce oil spills at some time affecting all forms of wildlife and the environment. You cannot protect something once it's gone. If the pipeline project goes ahead, it will fragment the boreal forest home to birds and other wildlife including woodland caribou and grizzly bears, expose the Great Bear Rainforest home to wolves and the iconic spirit bear and 30 internationally recognized important bird areas teaming with marine birds, fish and other animals to potential oil spills and pollution from tanker traffic. It would also risk irreversible harms to the livelihoods of many coastal and aboriginal communities. Therefore, we need to oppose these proposals. I heard on CBC

issues before those issues become too overwhelming resulting in the requirement of more severe health interventions, typically in a hospital setting. Our funding predominantly comes from government contracts, though there is significant shortfall. In order to keep our doors open and continue to do the essential mental health work we do, we search and apply for other funding, from a variety of sources, to bridge the deficit, as well as fundraise ourselves. We are most thankful that United Way and some community service agencies do what they can in donations to help support us in our work, though this is not usually enough to meet the shortfall. We have also applied to foundations in our funding efforts only to be told that these organizations do not see their role as providing dollars to top up government shortfalls. Can

we blame them? I have just received the funding decision with regard to our application for gaming funds for this next fiscal year. I was dismayed to see that not only is our allocation less than half the requested amount, but is fully $20,000 less than last year. Premier Christy Clark has informed the people of this constituency that you are a relentless advocator in Victoria for local issues, so I now ask for the same consideration. Mr. Foster, I am not asking for huge salary and benefits increases to align our staff with their government paid counterparts, though I should be. What I am asking for is government recognition of the essential work we do and the funding to support this work. Jan Schulz executive director Family Resource Centre Society, North Okanagan

radio that the company will make no comment about the protest rallies. Does this mean that they plan to go ahead whatever we say in the hope of making a profit?. Is it democratic to ignore the needs of wildlife and communities along the route? Pamela Jenkins GRATITUDE I would like to express my gratitude to the nurses and staff of 3 west at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. During my recent stay, I experienced first hand their care and compassion. The charge nurses, June and Cathy, were friendly and efficient. I never felt as though I was bothering the nurses when I asked for something and they took the time to speak with my family members on the phone several times, even though I know they are busy. Thank you to the 3 west staff for making my hospital stay as comfortable as possible. Donna Colangelo

so it’s not realistic,” she said. A firm cost for a 2012 study has not been determined and even if RDNO participated, the city would pick up 68 per cent of the grant.

The canvassers carry ID with them.” Rocky Mountain Marketing agents are selling a coupon card full of between $500 and $600 in values from businesses and organizations in the North Okanagan-Shuswap region. The card, with tax, sells for just under $30, and canvassers have the technology to accept debit cards at the door. Last year’s campaign raised approximately $10,000 for the local Crime Stoppers. “This is the main support of revenue for our program,” said Molendyk. “It’s one of the ways we pay for rewards and run our program.”

Firm rules will dictate how taxpayers’ money is spent on culture in Lumby and Cherryville. The White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee will sign a three-year funding agreement with the Cherryville Artisans Association and the Monashee Arts Council. “The agreement sets out the parameters for who can receive funding and reporting procedures,” said Rick Fairbairn, WVPRCAC chairperson. Both the artisans association and the arts council will distribute money to non-profit groups pursing arts and culture activities. There will be $29,050 for the Monashee Arts Council to manage and $6,450 for the Cherryville Artisans Society.

Morning Star Staff

The Downtown Vernon Association has announced the names of the four finalists for the 2012 Spirit of Downtown Vernon Award. The finalists for this year are Briteland Holdings, Carousel Consignments, Fishers Hardware, and Nixon Wenger Lawyers. “We have a really great group of candidates up for consideration this year,” said executive director Earl Hansen. “Each of the finalists comes from a different segment of the business community and Earl Hansen in their own way has contributed to making downtown the drawing card for local and regional customers it is today.” The award was initiated by the DVA to honour a business for outstanding contributions to the downtown Vernon business community and its customers over the long term. The criteria for the Spirit of Downtown Vernon Award is that candidate businesses must have been in operation downtown for 20 years or more, have helped raise the bar in terms of appearance/drawing power/service/impact, must reflect the historic character of downtown, be financially significant to the local economy, and have a record of involvement in and support of community activities. The 2012 award will be presented at the DVA’s annual general meeting March 28 at 5:30 p.m. at the Elks Hall. Tickets for the dinner meeting are $20 each and are available at the DVA office.

City safety recognized Morning Star Staff

High safety standards have paid off for the City of Vernon. The city will receive a $90,000 WorkSafe BC rebate over three years after receiving a certificate of recognition from the B.C. Municipal Safety Association and WorkSafe BC. The funds will go towards future health and safety initiatives. The city received the certificate after undergoing an audit of its safety management system. “Every level of the organization is responsible for promoting a culture of safety among all workers, management, and executive,” said Clay Fredin, the city’s health and safety co-ordinator.

Three Vernon firefighters continue to advance with their training. Allyson Reich, Ryan McGiverin and Mike Stoll have completed all of the necessary modules for their fire officer one program at the Justice Institute of B.C. “This program takes many hours of hard work in both theory and practice to complete. It was a good job done by all,” said Jack Blair, deputy fire chief. Fire officer one is the first level of the fire officer program. Successful completion of this curriculum by these firefighters is the first step in becoming a certified fire officer and it allows them to now act in a higher ranking supervisory position such as a captain. It also allows them to be an incident commander at an emergency scene. This is the first level of a four-level system in the fire service leadership certificate program and it will allow them to enter into a fire service leadership bachelor’s degree if they so choose.

L’Arrivee Ice ready GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Vernon’s Kyle L’Arrivee, of the Okanagan College Coyotes, will race in the Red Bull Crashed Ice competition in Quebec City.

Imagine racing down an alpine slalom course while balancing on hockey skates. Then, for fun, add in a handful of other athletes who want to reach the bottom just as fast as you. That’s pretty much what Vernon’s Kyle L’Arrivee will be up against this week when he makes his debut in Red Bull Crashed Ice, which runs Thursday to Saturday in Quebec City. L’Arrivee, a third-year sports business student who played this season with the Okanagan College Coyotes in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League, signed up on a whim. “It was pretty unexpected,” said L’Arrivee, who turns 24 on April 1. “The qualifiers came to Kelowna this year and I was just sitting on my couch and had my laptop and the commercial came up.” He was one of more than 10,000 adventurous Canadians to register for the chance to compete at one of 13 qualifying cities across the country. L’Arrivee, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound forward, showed up for the February trials at the Capital News Centre not really knowing what to expect. With organizers obviously unable to replicate the 500-metre sloped Crashed Ice course, they tested entrants’ speed and agility by having them race through obstacles on the CNC ice. “You had to jump over things and dive under things,” said L’Arrivee, who qualified third out of about 200 applicants. “It’s obviously going to be way different, but skating has always been my kind of thing. I’ve played hockey since I was five. It’s going to be a bit scary for sure, but I think

I’ll be fine with it.” L’Arrivee, a Kalamalka Laker grad, has a fairly straightforward game-plan heading to Quebec: “The fastest guy who stays on his feet is going to win. “You’ve got to be pretty agile. The course is obviously pretty crazy and athletes are going fast. As long as you’ve got speed and agility and are able to keep your balance, those three things would help an athlete out the most. “You’re not allowed physical contact on purpose, so that’ll make it a little easier because we’re not trying to kill each other down the track.” Crashed Ice competitors typically wear regular hockey gear, and cages are mandatory. However, there is one piece of equipment missing, and L’Arrivee says it makes a big difference. Like most hockey players growing up, from the time he started skating, L’Arrivee has had a stick in his hands. Without one, balance becomes a whole new issue, especially when he is careening down a pitched sheet of ice that features turns and jumps. “That was the one thing with the qualifier; it was pretty weird because obviously I’m used to having a stick in my hands,” he said. L’Arrivee transferred to Okanagan College from Calgary’s Mount Royal, where he played with the Cougars. He collected 10 goals and nine helpers for 19 points in 23 games with the ‘Yotes in 2011-12. Before that, he played Junior A with the now-defunct Quesnel Millionaires and Merritt Centennials. The bulk of his Junior experience was with the KIJHL Princeton Posse, who he led in scoring in his final season, posting 19-32-51 in 52 games in 2008-09. He also racked up 100 penalty minutes.

Zee wins Viper MVP KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

They gave graduating 20-year-olds scrapbooks, wished scholarship players good luck and urged returnees to learn from an arduous season. Owner Duncan Wray called the Vernon Viper awards banquet Monday at the Prestige Hotel “ a bitter-sweet night as we say goodbye to some good people.” The Vipers, who missed the B.C. Hockey League playoffs for the first time in 11 years, lose nine players through aging out and scholarships. “The season didn’t end the way you wanted, but remember the feeling because we’re going to be stronger next year and we’re going to make some noise in the playoffs so get prepared for a long run,” said Wray.

Outgoing players were also told by Wray to be proud to have worn a Viper jersey. “You’re always a Viper and you’re always welcome in our family.” Captain Patrick McGillis, whose leadership the Vipers sorely missed as he was injured for half the season, thanked the fans and billets for sticking with the team in a season full of ups and downs. “I love you guys (teammates) like brothers and I hope we will be friends forever,” said McGillis. “Thank you to everybody for making this not just a place to play hockey, but a home.” Head coach/GM Jason Williamson praised team sponsors, head scout Larry Black and tireless trainer Gord (Hoon) Cochran.

Continued from A24 “We never had our full team one game all season,” said Williamson. “Our players will be better because of it next year...The banquet will be a lot later than March 12.” Second-year power winger Mike Zalewski was the Vipers’ top scorer with 38 goals and 75 points after a 12-goal rookie season. The 19-year-old New Yorker also claimed the team’s MVP trophy. He’s headed to play for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Engineers near his New Hartford home on a scholarship next season. “He’s a great guy, a very skilled hockey player,” said John Knisley, a fellow New York State boy who’s off to the Colgate Big Red next fall. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see him playing pro hockey in a couple of years here. Just a great all-around player.” Zalewski leaves the Vipers as perhaps the best prankster and videographer in team history. Knisley figures Zee may have a future in Hollywood. “He knows how to make the videos. He’s pretty He’s a character.” Brett Corkey, a Calgary product in year two with was chosen Top Defenceman.

The Vernon Lakeside Printing Predators will have a pair of styling Pee Wee banners hanging in Civic Arena. The Predators stopped the Westside Warriors 5-1 in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association District final Sunday morning at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton. Westside had iced the Predators 7-3 in preliminary play Friday night at McLaren Arena. Coaches Joe O’Hearn and Marlon Schaper-Kotter knew the Preds had to come out flying. Coaches Darren Kroeker and Sheldon Aldrich geared the team to working hard for the win. Landon Currie opened the Lakeside offence four minutes in, with assists by Reid Lawrence and Mac Gilchrist. Cameron Mackenzie recorded some key saves in the first period. The solid defensive duo of Jacob Soucy and Cole Martin shut down Westside in the first two periods with Noah Foufoulas stopping everything in the second. Lawrence made it 2-0, from Ryan Jakes and Ryan Lazar. In the third, Dallas Howard took the puck hard to the zone and the girl power from Rachael Kroeker and Kim Whitelaw kept it in Westside’s zone. Mackenzie returned to the net in the third and two minutes in, Currie and Lawrence teamed up for a third snipe. The Predators kept pressing and Chris Aldrich converted off a beautiful assist from Martin. Westside clicked on a breakaway with six minutes left before Currie completed his hat trick on feeds from Lazar and Tyson Sampert. “Everyone contributed to a great season and gave it all they had to take the win,” said O’Hearn. The North Okanagan playoff champion Predators got superb goaltending from Mackenzie (game MVP) in their loss to Westside. On Saturday morning at Memorial Arena, the Predators received solid play from defensive centre Colton Schaper-Kotter (MVP) in a 7-4 win over Penticton. Lawrence pocketed the first goal one minute into the game with the assist from Lazar. The Preds led 5-4 at the end of the second and went up by a deuce on Jonas Ramsey’s ripper. Currie added an extra insurance tally. The Predators had to take Game 3 to reach the final, and after spotting Lillooet a goal 50 seconds in, rallied to win a 4-3 thriller. Currie equalized a few minutes later off a pass from Martin.

Colton Schaper-Kotter buried a blueline slapper through the five-hole and banked in another goal five minutes later. Lillooet stuffed their second goal with 14 seconds left in the second and tied it early in the third. Aldrich produced the winner 12 minutes into the period. Jakes’ defensive plays earned him game MVP. Meanwhile, the Lumby Atom Stars (sponsored by Kineshanko Logging and Armstrong Co-op), capped a terrific season by finishing second in the Districts in Lumby. The Stars, who doubled Salmon Arm Titans 4-2 for the Super League playoff banner after claiming the regular-season title, bowed 4-2 to Lillooet in the District final Sunday. Down 4-0, the Stars rallied back with goals by Ryan Desilets and Conner Seehaver on assists by Noah Clarke and Nic Teale. In preliminary action, the Stars grounded Penticton 5-2 with Desilets (2), Kineshanko and Drew Mackenzie handling the offence. Mackenzie (2) and Teale helped the Stars brush back the Titans 3-1 before falling 2-0 to Lillooet. The Stars entered the North Okanagan playoffs down a key player in the loss of gritty forward Quin Williamson, who broke his leg the day before the postseason. The Stars lost 4-1 to the fourth-place Grizzlies in their playoff opener with Teale scoring. Lumby then earned a 1-1 tie with the Titans before icing the Winfield #2 Bruins 6-4 on Mackenzie’s hat trick and losing 4-3 to Winfield #1 before gonging the Grizzlies 5-1 in the semifinals. The gritty Stars’ defensive core of Jordan Romailler, Emily Romailler, Wyatt Whitcome, Micheal Preston, Ethan Beliveau and Liam Mcleod kept the Grizzlies’ scoring chances low. Matthew Yaremcio was in goal in the final, and made many amazing saves, including one on a penalty shot. Mackenzie, Kineshanko, Desilets and Seehaver scored the goals. The Lumby Pee Wee Stars (sponsored by Aldon Waste and Terry’s Automotive) capped off their season by claiming the B side North Okanagan Super League title with a 3-2 comeback win over Sicamous. Josh Litven, Tyler Yule and Cameron Pryor scored in support of Chris Nielsen. The Stars went 2-1 in round-robin play, grounding Winfield 5-3 with Litven (2), Tyler Yule, Vanessa Yaremcio, and Tanner Franje-Gilbert supplying the goals. Lumby got four goals from Yule as they tamed Salmon Arm 6-4, getting singles from Litven and Yaremcio.

Kuhn shuts off Cotter Morning Star Staff

The celebration for manager Dave Merklinger’s 50-something birthday lasted longer than the Baron Insurance Super League playoff final Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. North Enderby Timber skip Robbi Kuhn, a dental assistant, brushed off Woodland Equipment’s Jim Cotter 6-0, in six quick ends to claim $600. Cotter, who has a completely different rink than the one which went 4-7 at the Tim Hortons Brier in Saskatoon, collected $400. The losing semifinalists – Merkling’s Canwest Propane and Brad Wood’s NuFloors – both earned $300. Kuhn had her husband Ryan, a 2000 world junior champion with his brother Brad, at third, and Brier veterans Garry VanDenBerghe (formerly of Jeff Stoughton’s foursome) and Doug Smith up front. “She made a lot of nice draws and played really well,” said Ryan, of his wife. The Timber crew scored three in the third end after the opening two ends were blanked. They then swiped singles in four and five before shaking hands after six. “We’ll spend it eventually,” said Ryan, of the winnings. “We’ll get together for a team barbecue.” Cotter, who finished at 7-9 in the nine-team league, was supported by third Aaron Herrick and a front end of Mark Fillion and Jason Wizniak. The men’s club playoffs start Monday night with the mixed going Tuesday night and the ladies set for Wednesday night. Finals in all three categories go Thursday at 7 p.m. Entries, at $220, are being accepted for the Vernon Mixed Bonspiel, March 23-25. Call the curling club at 250-542-6713.

Kal Tire ski roundup slated for Silver Star Morning Star Staff

The Vernon United U14 boys lost 1-0 to the North Vancouver Surging Wild Torrent in the 2nd annual North Vancouver Football Club Invitational Soccer Tournament final Sunday. Despite outplaying the Wild Torrent, United was unable to put one past the Torrent keeper who made several great saves, including a diving save on a Cameron Hitch penalty kick. On Sunday morning, Vernon defeated the Tsawwassen Blues 2-1. The back line of Jason Reich, Chase Larsen, Shayne Groeneveld, Jorden Dewing and Bryce Dyck played the offside trap to perfection, catching the Blues more than a dozen times. The winning goal was scored by Zac Kronbauer, on a great passing play involving Dewing and Michael Williamson. The Vernon boys, coached by Mike Melbourne, opened with a 2-1 win over the Wild Torrent with Kronbauer, Kody Glinsbockel, Ryan Killingsworth, Dyck and keeper Cole Shoemaker enjoying strong games. In the Saturday afternoon match, United brushed back the Wesburn Storm of Burnaby 3-2. They easily outplayed the Storm but had difficulty finishing. Cole Woodliffe and Brandon Melbourne had strong games in the midfield. Vernon opens their regular Thompson-Okanagan season on Sunday April 1 against Kelowna United.

is to recruit new skiers. “This is a great experiment in making events like these accessible to everyone” said VSC president Ken Clancy. “We are hoping for more like this in the future. Grass roots participation is needed to grow winter sports like skier cross.” The Round Up is designed to be fun and does not take a lot of prior experience or spe-

cial training. “We are looking for confident skiers who can ski runs like Peanut Trail or who like jumps in the trees or in the Telus terrain park. Being able to ski in control on blue runs at Silver Star is all the skill you need to enjoy this event,” said John Armstrong, VSC program director and course designer. Awards will be given by age

and gender for fastest times, but just experiencing the fun is what it’s all about. Action goes Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 a.m. with the E1 (5-8yrs)Under the Hill Downhill on Far Out and the E2 (9-13yrs: Ski Cross on Walt’s Run To enter or find further information and updates visit www.vernonskiclub.ca.

Titans, Velocity pocket Districts Inaugural OMAHA Rec playoffs Morning Star Staff

Rookie Chris Gallant scored with 3:37 left as the Vernon Nedco Titans bounced the host Barley Mill Bistro 5-4 in the inaugural Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association Midget Rec final Sunday at the South Okanagan Events Centre. It was an intense thriller with the Titans blowing a 4-2 secondperiod lead, their goalie Rodger Sewell getting bulldozed near the ringette line and the Penticton goalie being ejected for striking a Titan with his blocker. Gallant scored twice in the final, and finished with eight snipes for the weekend. Roadrunner winger Mark Francis supplied 2+2 and also counted eight in the playdowns, while captain Brodie Homeniuk added a single and Yanik Fillion-Murphy registered four assists. Garrett Dansereau, a winger on the Titans’ top line with Francis and Fillion-Murphy, had two helpers, as did d-man Gavin Banning. Sewell, who made an all-planet glove save from in tight, with 95 seconds remaining, took game MVP. Once again Nedco head coach Kevin Murphy – whose crew won the North Okanagan banner the week before – was impressed with how hard every player worked for

the victory. “We had a lot of first-year players on our team and they faced a steep learning curve at the start of the season,” said Murphy. “But, by the time this District Championship rolled around, Brett Shaigec, Max Mitchell, Austin Bosquet, Kolton Kirschner, Josh Lerbeck and, in particular, Chris Gallant, were all making ‘second-year contributions’. In turn, our two second-year skaters Garrett Dansereau and Chad Woodhead put in monster efforts both offensively and defensively in all four games. “Then, our older guys: Yanik Fillion-Murphy, Mark Francis, Brodie Homeniuk and Gavin Banning, as they did all season, showed both poise and fierce determination in many key situations. Finally, the team got stellar goaltending from Rodger Sewell as well as inspirational support from graduating d-man Quin Finocchio, who only managed one shift due to an injured foot but definitely rallied the entire team with his presence.” The Titans gave up two late goals in a 4-4 draw with the Barley Mill Saturday morning at the SOEC. Gallant (2), FillionMurphy and Lerbeck handled the offence in front of Sewell. Gallant scored three times as

Mark Francis of the Vernon Nedco Titans tries to stuff the puck past Penticton Barley Mill Bistro goalie Brandon Grinde in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association Midget Rec playoff final Sunday at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Nedco opened the four-team playdowns with a 6-4 win over the Westside Warriors at Memorial Arena. Francis added two goals, including an empty-netter, with 14 seconds to play. Lerbeck provided one goal. Fillion-Murphy earned three helpers, while Woodhead and Dansereau each netted a pair. Austin Thiessen pulled the hat trick for the Warriors, including a sweet penalty-shot snipe, top shelf on Sewell. The Titans ambushed the Merritt Jr. Centennials 11-0 Saturday night at Memorial with Kolton Kirschner and Francis each pocketing three goals. Dansereau, with 1+3, Gallant, with 1+2, Woodhead, Homeniuk and Bosquet completed the offence. The Titans were without Fillion-Murphy, who

was busy winning five firsts in a Penticton piano competition. Meanwhile, the Vernon Scotia Bank Velocity stopped host Lumby 8-2 Sunday in the District Bantam Super League final at Pat Duke Memorial Arena. Jacob Holland saved 20 of 21 Lumby shots and Sylvain Lucet saved 19 of 20, while Marshall Box, Marcus Finn and Seth Blundell each collected two goals for the Velocity. Jeff Hiscoe and Isaiah Wenger contributed singles for the Scotiabank crew, who won three tournaments along with the North Okanagan title. Kyle Dennis had two helpers. “It was an unbelievable performance...what a year,” said Velocity head coach Brent Magnus. “First and foremost, the group of players are awesome. We had extremely successful results in the ‘W’ column, and even our losses came at the perfect time, providing such

perfect ‘coachable moments’ that pushed us on to greater achievements.” The Velocity opened the playdowns by toppling Thompson Cariboo champion Ashcroft 8-4 with Blundell bagging 3+1 and Finn supplying 1+2. Singles went to Wenger, Dennis, Jeremy Pogue and Box. Holland and Lucet each allowed two goals. Vernon then bowed 5-1 to the Lumby Stars who outworked and outplayed the Velocity, who got a goal from Box, on a great solo effort, going forehand, backhand and off the goalie’s sprawled pad. Needing a win to reach the final, Finn pulled the hat trick and Wenger scored twice as the Velocity ambushed Penticton 8-3. Parker Wadsworth, Dennis and Box had singles, while Pogue earned two helpers. Holland stopped 13 saves for a first-half shutout and Lucet was also solid with 18 saves.

Brett Bulmer (33rd), Tyson Baillie (ninth), Shane McColgan (18th) and Cody Chikie (18th) scored for the sixth-place Rockets, who managed a pair of powerplay goals.

O’Keefe makes his mark Creek) and Thomas Wood staked his preemption a short distance down the west side of Okanagan Lake. Four years later, Wood was to move to the south end of a lake that came to bear his name but O’Keefe and Greenhow stayed on the land until they were buried on it, many years later. The three Ken Mather were not the first to settle in the North Okanagan. In 1864 Francis Jones Barnard, the owner of Barnard’s Express stage line (later the BC Express), had taken up land on what was called the “BX” Ranch. He was followed by the two brothers, Forbes George and Charles Vernon, and their friend Charles Houghton, who took out military grants in the area. Further north near present-day Enderby, A L Fortune settled in 1866. O’Keefe seems to have been the dominant partner of the three. As early as 1868, a year after they had settled, a drover wrote about going to “O’Keefe’s” to see about some cattle. Eventually the O’Keefe Ranch became the entry point into the Okanagan

Valley and early settlers began to refer to the location as “Okanagan.” They would arrive by horseback on the trail from Fort Kamloops and then head north up the Spallumcheen Valley or south through the Okanagan in search of suitable homesteads. An 1881 map shows three settlements in the entire valley, Houghton (Coldstream Ranch), Okanagan Mission (later Kelowna) and

Okanagan. Of course cities such as Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton were still in the future. To cater to the gold miners and the growing number of settlers arriving in the area, Cornelius O’Keefe opened a small general store to provide necessary provisions and a place to exchange news. He would take a pack train to Fort Kamloops and purchase enough supplies to keep the little store going for a

month or two and pack them back to his ranch. While there were several ranchers who settled ahead of Cornelius O’Keefe, his is the only ranch that was still being lived in by the original family 100 years later. Today some of the oldest buildings in the valley are still being used and preserved as part of the O’Keefe Ranch heritage site. Ken Mather is curator at O’Keefe Ranch.

ornelius O’Keefe was the son of a dirt-poor Irish immigrant farmer who had settled in the Ottawa Valley. So when he first saw the bunch grass ranges at the Head of Okanagan Lake, he couldn’t believe that the lush bottom land was available for homestead or “pre-emption” as it was then called. He had been driving cattle up from the Willamette Valley in Oregon far to the south with his partner, Thomas Wood, when they met Thomas Greenhow from the north of England. The three men had pooled their meagre herd of cattle and drove them north across the Columbia River and into British territory. It was the middle of June, 1867 and all three men were concerned that the market for fine Oregon cattle was dwindling, along with the supply of gold in the Cariboo region. They decided that the future lay in taking up their own land in this fertile corner of the Colony of British Columbia. So each man staked out a rough 160 acre plot of land; O’Keefe and Greenhow took property straddling Meadow Creek (later to be called Deep

Shoparama supports local Salvation Army

Morning Star Staff

A popular arts and crafts festival will help ensure residents in need don’t go hungry. Shoparama runs March 31 and April 1 at the Vernon Recreation Complex and non-perishable food items and money will be collected for the local food bank. “Shoparama has been a great asset to the food bank for the past several years,” said David MacBain, with the Salvation Army. “Thousands of food items have been collected over the years

which have been such a blessing.” Last year, 990 food items and $330 were donated during Shoparama. “If visitors to this wonderful spring market forget to bring food items to donate they can simply donate cash at the familiar Christmas kettle which will greet them at the front door,” said MacBain. Demand at the local food bank continues to climb, with an additional 90 new households coming for assistance so far this year.

#ODSAREABOUTTOGOGREENFORCONCERT Vernon band invites friends for one of the biggest St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day parties this side of St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Gaeilge Thalamh an Ă&#x2030;isc. The Gaelic name for that distinct dialect known as Newfoundland Irish, it is said that 80 per cent of those from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rockâ&#x20AC;? are of Irish descent. Newfoundlanders are also part of the four million Canadians of full or partial Irish descent living across the country, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder that green is the national colour in Canada come St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. One Okanagan band will be rolling out the shamrocks along with the Newfoundland flag on the release of its sophomore album. Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cod Gone Wild holds a Maritimes-style kitchen party at the Performing Arts Centre Sunday with numerous friends from around the community. Featuring two new members, fiddler Anjuli Otter and bassist Roy Kawano, the Cods will spend the first half of the concert playing the tunes off its brand, new album The Traveler. Recorded at the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house in Coldstream, lead singer/ guitarist Andrew Mercer says the album is not only an ode to his Newfoundland roots, but also features his bandmatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; individual influences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are songs weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played for a while and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important as we are a Celtic-Maritime band to have that Newfoundland influence, but we all have our own influences,â&#x20AC;? said Mercer, adding the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drummer/graphic designer Chad â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rhinoâ&#x20AC;? Carter has a background playing in rock/funk bands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also perform a lot of traditional songs, but have made them our own.â&#x20AC;? A classically-trained violinist, Otter recently returned to her hometown of Vernon after spending five years living and working in India. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a self-admitted fan of bluegrass and Celtic music, so joining the Cods was a no-brainer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a bit of a culture shock after being in India for so long,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While I was away I was playing in some orchestras, a fusion of Indian and classical music, and when I got back here I got a call from Roy to see if I wanted

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a fantastic way to be back here and get into music again.â&#x20AC;? Mercer also knows about being away from home. A native of Bay Roberts, Nlfd., he came to Vernon three years ago, and relates the experience on the title track off the new album. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a Newfoundlander going west. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the many of us who leave and then realize thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like home,â&#x20AC;? said Mercer, adding the song just got some airplay on

CBC Radio in St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have that appreciation back home even though I live out west is cool.â&#x20AC;? Mercer is also quick to point out that although The Traveler is a Celtic album, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rock feel to most of the songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are an upbeat, energetic show band, but we like to keep the folk aspect to our music, and welcome other genres,â&#x20AC;? he said. The band is also known for partying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roversâ&#x20AC;? style, and recently had audiences jigging in a frenzy at the Winter Carnival Irish Pub Night, which won the trophy for best adult Carnival event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a DVD from the performance, which has great footage and live sound, which we put on YouTube,â&#x20AC;? said Mercer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to take the model of Irish pub nights right across Canada.â&#x20AC;? But first theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start at home with a St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day party like no other. Besides leading the Cods, Mercer is also a music instructor and conducts the Argyll Celtic Choir, which features 25 members, at Coldstreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Argyll School of Celtic Arts. The group will perform two songs on their own at the Vernon concert, with accompaniment by former Cod, keyboardist Betty Ann Northup, and will also join the band for two songs, said Mercer, who has also lined up the Coldstream Elementary Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100-member choir, led by Ann Dorval, to join the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been going to the school the last several weeks to rehearse. We have the whole class who now know the words to the old English folk song Drunken Sailor,â&#x20AC;? laughed Mercer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All are really excited about singing it.â&#x20AC;? Also performing will be local musician Bob Oldfield, who played mandolin and bouzouki on The Traveler, as well as the Argyll Highland Dancers, led by Janet Hackman, and Dorvalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drum group Jabulani. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important to have all these people supporting and joining us on stage,â&#x20AC;? said Mercer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have lots of things happening with people coming and going.â&#x20AC;? Cod Gone Wild and Friends take the stage at the Performing Arts Centre Sunday at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students, available at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www. ticketseller.ca. Part proceeds will go to Sun FMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Have a Heart Telethon for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation.

Morning Star Staff

Shane Koyczan may have been introduced to the world during the Opening Ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics when he espoused We Are More, but for local fans, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that talented writer who once studied at Okanagan (University) College and eventually found his voice. Now a world renowned slam poet and spoken word artist, who is based in Penticton, Koyczan returns to Vernon April 17 on the release of his new album, Remembrance Year, with his band The Short Story Long. On his latest musical effort, Koyczan

brings awareness to the genre of talk rock. Exploring the musical background of the band, which is influenced by folk, funk and rock, the album takes on a variety of genres and themes accompanied by Koyczanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warm and witty lyricism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making Remembrance Year was easily the best, hardest, loveliest, flabbergastingly joyful and preposterously heart rending experiences Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been a part of,â&#x20AC;? said Koyczan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I could make it again if I tried, but of course Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try.â&#x20AC;? In addition to his music, Koyczan will also release his third book, Our Deathbeds Will

Be Thirsty (McKellar & Martin Publishing Group, Limited) on April 18. Considered to be his most mature yet playful collection of poetry to date, Koyczan describes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deathbeds as a book with sharp and sudden turns.â&#x20AC;? His first collection, Visiting Hours, published in 2005, gained outstanding praise from The Guardian (U.K.) and The Globe and Mail in their Best Books of the Year lists. Visiting Hours is now in its third edition, and includes We Are More, originally commissioned by the Canadian Tourism Commission and performed by Koyczan at

the 2010 Winter Olympics. His second novel, Stickboy, chronicles the dark and lonely journey of a bullied child gripped by helpless rage. The novel has been a staple for teachers, academics, and mental health experts alike for its deft handling of the subject of bullying. Special guest duo Mikkal Waters and Charles Reuchelle will open for Koyczan and The Short Story Longâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, April 17 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25/adult, $20/student, $5 EyeGo (in person only) at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www.ticktseller.ca.

“Tonight, right here on this stage… you’re in for a Reeeally Big Sheeew!” So goes Ed Sullivan tribute artist Larry Merchison as he introduces the Ed Sullivan Caravan of Stars, which comes to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Monday. The Caravan of Stars is presented by the World Famous Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll, which has brought tribute shows to Vernon in the past. This time the lineup of world-class entertainers, besides Merchison, includes headliner Lance Lipinsky, who pays homage to Jerry Lee Lewis. The Texas native and rockabilly musician most recently appeared as Lewis in the Tony Award winning musical The Million Dollar Quartet in Chicago and is now touring B.C. with the Caravan of Stars. “He alone is worth the price of admission,” said Legends founder Les Vogt, adding the show also includes Ted Torres as Young Elvis, Peter Jackson as Eddie Cochran plus superb impersonations of the Big Bopper, Ricky Nelson, Johnny Cash and the Everly Brothers. “The Ed Sullivan Caravan of Stars features the most respected tribute artists in the world and their credentials are very well documented in tribute circles everywhere.” The show includes more that 40 top 10 hits with the backing of the legendary Memphis Beats Rock ‘n’ Roll Band. “The illusions are uncanny. The faces, the costumes, the movements, the songs… they are all the same. You couldn’t ask for anything more. It’s a fun-filled evening of authentic 1950s’ rock ’n’ roll music,” said Vogt. Monday’s performance in Vernon starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $39.75 (all seats) at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Red planet gives John Carter wings John Carter

N

ot such a long time ago, in a galaxy that’s very familiar to us, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote a classic novel that inspired many other storytellers since, (Arthur C. Clark to James Cameron.) John Carter, originally penned as A Princess of Mars more than 100 years ago, was one of the first interplanetary romances ever writTaylor & Howe ten. The John Carter books became a popular series, although JC himself remained less famous than Burroughs other invention, Tarzan. At the end of the 19th century, American Civil War veteran, John Carter (Kelowna born Taylor Kitsch), avoids capture from a band of Apaches by hiding in a cave. Inside this cave, Carter has a close encounter of the “Thern” kind, when he is magically transported to the planet Barsoom, aka Mars. On Barsoom he meets a species of fourarmed troglodytes (the Tharks) trapped between warring (human) inhabitants and a beautiful princess longing for peace, (Lynn Collins.) Everybody wants John Carter on their side as he has impressive “Earth” powers, due to Barsoom’s gravity and his own physiology. All John Carter wants to do is get home, but he can’t get around his current situation, he’s going to have to go through it. Will John Carter fight off the baddies, become royalty and win the girl? Will he ever return to his miserable Earthen existence? Is this even a choice?

FRANK CONNOR ©2011 DISNEY

John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) meets with the princess, Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). We say, “Watch it, it’s familiar fun.” HOWE: John Carter is a great looking movie, the special effects are good, but nothing Earth shattering. The storyline flows nicely, but don’t nip out for popcorn or a loo break, you may miss something. TAYLOR: The effects were awesome because you didn’t notice them. Sixty percent of this movie must have been animated. Weird character and place names lose me sometimes, but that’s all you could lose track of in this movie. The story, as they say in the trailer, inspired everything. Boy gets lost. Boy finds war. Boy finds girl. Boy loves girl. Boy fights war. War gets won. Girl gets won. Everybody wins except the bad guys. You’ve already enjoyed this movie, over and over again. HOWE: Yeah, but I would watch it again just to see the princess. TAYLOR: At just under two and a quarter hours, this film is asking for

respect. This is meant to be a serious interpretation of the classic novel, transformed into a classic Disney film. I haven’t read the novel but I think it was an effective and entertaining movie. Although it’s sort of the same ol’ tale, I can’t knock the film for its originality due to its lateness in blooming. HOWE: So did Disney turn John Carter into a classic film? I say “yes.” It kept me hooked and intrigued throughout and I can’t wait for the sequel. John Carter has got everything a classic sci-fi movie needs. TAYLOR: Action, honour, mystery, magic and romance, and the tidiest battle scenes ever captured on film. Look maw, no mess! –– Howe gives John Carter 3.5 eight legged space mutts out of 5. –– Taylor gives it 3 loincloths out of 5. The feature is currently showing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Duo moves on from iPod ad The Ting Tings: Sounds From Nowheresville

T

rendy electro-pop duo The Ting Tings straddle a loud line between luscious ear candy and cheap tinny sounds. The Salford, England twosome can wallow in the shallow end of the stream, but they don’t come across as gutless, just intent on fleeting moments of flash (Hit Me Down Sonny). It’s kind of a head-for-thedisco club music superficiality without the deadening ear fatigue that plagues much American dance music. Dean Gordon-Smith The noisy duo (Katie White; vocals, guitar, and Jules de Martino; drums, bass, keys, background vocals) are clever at layering melodic effects

STREET SOUNDS

and trashy tones over basic riff tracks. Hang It Up and Give It Back are cheap thrills that don’t linger on, but they don’t aspire to anything more than spectacle-driven distraction. White’s vocals have a pissed off punk mannequin attack, which suits the reggae-lite electro aesthetic to a happy end. She rides over the kitschy beats and left field hooks like a warm android, milking the words for maximum bite. Consequently, the group’s futuristic videos with their eccentric ambiance seem to be filtering over into the recordings. White gets her kicks in on Soul Killing, a ska stomp that recalls 10CC’s Dreadlock Holiday in the chorus. De Martino and White space out luxuriantly over a hypnotic pulse in One By One that recalls mid-90’s Manchester trip rock. The Ting Tings keep it brief and beaty, and hipsterunfriendly. Smart move.

Artist takes us out to the ballgame with new exhibit Morning Star Staff

For a visual artist, Christine Kashuba sure knows a lot about baseball. And so she should. Her family is immersed in the sport. Her eldest son, Michael, was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 1998 and her other son, Jon, plays ball professionally in Austria. The well-known Vernon artist is currently showing her new series of artwork on the theme of spring training and baseball in the exhibition, Off the Hill, in the Main Gallery at Vernon’s Brew Gallery. “For such a recognizable subject, these

Bean to Cup holds hospice benefit Morning Star Staff

Local artists and musicians are showcasing their talents in a special event to raise money for the North Okanagan Hospice Society. The Bean to Cup Coffee House on 27th Street is hosting the event on St. Patrick’s Day Saturday, which features an art exhibition opening downstairs, featuring the work of Donna Mair, Dan Jason, Sassan Filsoof and others. The opening starts at 5 p.m. Patrons can then wander upstairs to enjoy live music by Kristian Frater at 6 p.m. and LeftOnLights at 8 p.m. “A portion of all coffee sold this night is earmarked for North Okanagan Hospice Society in Vernon B.C. and as it’s St. Patrick’s Day, Bean to Cup will be featuring lime slushes and the dinner special is Bean to Cup’s very own butter chicken,” said Kunal Chander. The event takes place Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, contact the Bean to Cup at 250-503-2222.

large artworks on paper have a surprising abstract quality due to the custom printing technique devised by Kashuba,” said Brew Gallery curator River Lewis. With titles such as Knuckle Ball, Chin Music, and Rain Delay, Kashuba has captured baseball stitching and textures onto the paper, which makes for a special reveal to the viewer upon investigation, he added. Kashuba adapted her rules for making her one-of-a-kind baseball monoprints through trial and error and study to deliver a very unique style of art. And it didn’t hurt that she had her sons to use as a reference.

Also opening at Brew Gallery are Small Works by Lewis, a mini exhibition of drawings and paintings in the Fireside Room. “The artworks represent mental landscapes influenced by local landscape,” said Lewis, adding that he works strictly from memory and the feeling of place and time to externalize his art making. Off The Hill and Small Works are on display at the Brew Gallery, located in the Bean to Brew Coffee House on 31st Avenue, next to the Vernon Public Art Gallery, now to April 12. An opening reception will be held at the gallery Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m.

Friends and art are a happy mix CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Art is for everyone at Paint with Your Friends. “I always wanted to paint so when I retired I went to art school and kept studying. With art, you’ve always got something to learn,” said Jocelyn Reynard. She had done some painting before, at 14 she had a job at The Bay in Vancouver painting people’s pets on trays for $1 each. Her son recently found one of those painting for sale on the Internet for $100. “It’s amazing what people can do with art. They often think they can’t do anything, but they can. They can do a lot more than they think. It really helps to come here and paint with other people. I learn a lot and I get inspired,” she said. Paint with Your Friends was started by an art teacher, the late Bill Davis, whose classes wanted to keep working together after courses ended. The group has artists of all ages and stages of learning working in a variety of mediums. Jean MacDougall has been a member of the group for about five years. “I just wandered in the door and the welcome here was the best welcome I had. I love coming here because we think about what we are working on and forget our everyday concerns,” she said. The group members paint what they like. The painting of a zebra leaning against a wall is by Jane Vice, a former graphic artist from South Africa who likes to paint wildlife. “I met Jocelyn when I was new here. She’s such a good mentor. I had never done any painting, just drawing, before so I’m learning. It’s such a lovely group. I would say to people to just come and enjoy it,” she said. Pat Southam is one of the original members, going back about 20 years. “I really enjoy it and the Arts Centre is

Internationally celebrated violinist Yi-Jai Susanne Hou tells this story about how one person reacted when informed she’d been granted the use of a $6 million Stradivarius violin. Susanne told an Okanagan Symphony Orchestra audience in Vernon last week she was in the middle of recording her latest CD when the loan agreement expired on an earlier premium violin she’d been using. Not long after, a call came from the Carnegie Foundation about a replacement. She went to New York and unex-

It opens your eyes to a whole new world and way of looking at things. I think a beginner would feel very comfortable here.” Kristen Dejong and her friend Aurora Greenaway started to come to the group last November. “I felt really welcome and encouraged and it’s been awesome and inspiring,” said Dejong, while Greenaway added, “I was never into painting since I stopped finger painting but Kristen inspires me. I love coming here.” Marilyn Irwin, who recently moved from Alberta, didn’t think she could paint at all when she started to attend. “Now I’m painting and drawing everything and thoroughly enjoying it. I’m

learning so much from it. I like doing paintings for my grandchildren. My grandson asked me to do him a picture of a train and I did,” she said. As an art teacher, Dot Szalanski didn’t find much time to do her own art. “I found out about Paint with Your Friends quite soon after I moved here eight years ago and I’ve been coming ever since. It gets me going with my painting and I look forward to it.” Paint with Your Friends meets Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. with members bringing their lunches. Everyone is welcome. The drop-in fee is $3. There are large easels and tables available for the members. Someone will often arrange a still life scene for members to paint or draw if they choose or they work on their own projects.

Violinist plays on ‘second-hand Chrysler’ Special to The Morning Star

New arrivals

pectedly faced having to choose from an extremely wide range of rare violins. Susanne said she went from one to another, but it was “Miss Mary” that “spoke” to her. And that was the Stradivarius she brought home. A few days later, it went with her into the studio to finish recording her CD. During the recording session, the audio technician commented on the sweet mellow tone of the rare instrument. She described to him her delight with having the use of such a remarkable violin. Susanne explained the instrument was made around 1735, was once owned

by the renowned composer and violinist Fritz Kreisler about 100 years ago, and was valued at more than $6 million. To which the technician responded: “That sounds like an awful lot of money to pay for a second-hand Chrysler.” About the artist: in 1999, Canadian Susanne Hou was the first violinist ever to be awarded three gold medals by unanimous decisions in the same year at international violin competitions: Concours International Long-Thibaud (France), Lipizer International Violin Competition (Italy), and Sarasate International Violin Competition (Spain).

Return of the bluebirds PAMELA JENKINS

For the North Okanagan Naturalists’ Club

Bluebirds are returning to the Okanagan from further south on their annual migration. Some have already been reported further south. Mountain bluebirds, which are a lovely pale blue, are one of the varieties, and the more common one is a Western bluebird, a darker blue with brownish and white feathers on its underside. Both are cavity nesters preferring the cavities already used by woodpeckers. They will also nest in the boxes made for them. These boxes have specific dimensions and each spring a group of people make more boxes, which are then placed along fence lines in open suitable territory. Last year bears damaged some boxes on one route, so we will not encourage or use those boxes this year. Eggs are laid, and 18 to 21 days later the birds fledge (are ready to fly away). People monitor the boxes on a weekly basis, but no longer look after 11 days, because the birds could fall out and perish. Other birds like starlings and sparrows also like to use the boxes, so they are put in pairs, which seems to work, one box for bluebirds (us) and one for them. Each spring the North Okanagan Naturalists’ Club holds a bluebird workshop, led by various bluebird people who know a lot about them. This year’s workshop takes place on Saturday. For more information, please call Kay at 250-542-3977 (evenings) or 250-545-2341 (daytime). For more information on the club, see www.nonc.ca

BIBLE BASICS

Life

The Resurrection of Christ proves creation and gives the lie to evolution. ConÀrms the law and the prophets which spoke of him. ConÀrms the Gospels, his sinlessness and that salvation is in his name. ConÀrms that our Lord will come again. Assures us of the resurrection of the saints and that the kingdom will come. Proves that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men. Above all else, the resurrection proves that God exists; that He is a living God whom we can worship.

He is in the military reserves and could be called up for active duty at any time. Six months ago, he did a 180-degree turn. Now I feel like I am living with an alien in my home. He has totally detached himself from me. He is an excellent father to the children, but won’t speak to me. He says if I ask him how his workday was, he will lie. His reasoning is that he does not want to put more stress on me, because I suffer from anxiety. He sees the anxiety as a weak-

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Get out and mingle while your popularity is at a high point. Even those who might have been a bit standoffish in the past will now orbit around your flame. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The best way to be successful is to make sure that your thinking is totally flexible, so that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to see things in a completely new light. Having an open mind is the key. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Go with the flow, even if what occurs is far afield from what you were hoping to do. New doors could be opened to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A cooperative spirit will be a major asset in all your relationships and should make you a very popular person to be around. Others will do for you what you do for them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Because life has been a trifle demanding of you lately, try to take a few moments to engage in something that you really enjoy doing. The most gratifying thing you can do is to be constructive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Social contacts can be enormously useful at this time, helping you further a special interest. Be sure to make your needs known to your friends as well as your family. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) In order to finalize a matter, you must keep uppermost in your mind what you hope to accomplish. Lock in on a

target and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the results to be extremely gratifying. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) You should take care of some old business by getting your message out on the Internet or by telephone. Regardless of the method you use, something fortuitous is likely to come of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You might find that special something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted to purchase but always felt was too expensive at a price youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to pay. Grab it: You might not get a chance like this again. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Try to avoid people who have a tendency to tie up your time. Your personal freedom and mobility will be of particular importance at this point. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Feelings of fulfillment and worth will only come from things you do for others, not from what you do for yourself. Now is the time to make good on your promises.

Minister blasted over log exports ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson, who is also B.C.’s forests minister, is under fire for a recent decision he made about the export of raw logs out of the province to an overseas mill. The NDP opposition is blasting Thomson for overruling a government advisory committee that said the logs did not meet the basic requirement for export and should have been sold to an independent manufacturer in Surrey. “The minister’s decision means that logs that would have otherwise created jobs in Steve Thomson B.C. were instead exported,” said NDP leader Adrian Dix. “The minister needs to explain why he made that unprecedented decision.” Thomson did explain Tuesday, in Victoria, saying the logs were approved for export because of the costs associated with shipping them from Adrian Dix Vancouver Island to the Lower Mainland. He said that calculation was not factored into the advisory committee’s recommendation. But the explanation was not good enough for the NDP. Its forests critic, Norm McDonald, accused Thomson of making the advisory committee “irrelevant” and declaring “open season” on raw log exports out of B.C. despite a long-standing rule in the province that says raw logs should only be exported if they are surplus to provincial needs. Recent statistics show B.C. exported a record 5.5 million cubic metres of raw logs last year, more than double the amount exported in 2010. The NDP has blasted the Liberal government for the level of raw log exports, saying it is costing the province jobs. Meanwhile, Thomson told reporters in Victoria that log exports policies in B.C. are currently under review.

More French services now available online Morning Star News

There is enhanced web contents on the provincial government website for francophone users. French speakers will be able to find information and services on the government website faster through: A new online search function in French on the webpage. A direct link to the webpage on the main government website, under the families and residents section. Centralized links on the John Les webpage to resources in French. “Language connects our francophone community with other French speakers across the country,” said John Les, parliamentary secretary to the premier. “I am excited about this enhanced service that will help French users find the information they need from our government website with a few clicks of the mouse.”

News GAMES TRIBUTE

CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR

Directors Jackie Pearase and Bob Fleming (above left) receive a piece of Bob Kingsmill pottery from speed skater Connie Kapak to recognize the Regional District of North Okanagan’s role in the recent Greater Vernon B.C. Winter Games. Above right, Kapak presents a Games commemorative plaque to recreation services manager Doug Ross and directors Mike Macnabb, Rob Sawatzky and chairperson Patrick Nicol. The plaque will be displayed at Wesbild Centre.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Newspapers reach educated, highincome earners better than other media, which makes advertising in the newspaper an awfully smart choice. NEWSPAPERS. THE MOST TRUSTED MEDIUM. Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder A SECOND STEP IS SOMETIMES NEEDED Charlotte Perkins Gilman, a sociologist, novelist and lecturer for social reform who died in 1935, said, “Audiences are always better pleased with a smart retort, some joke or epigram, than with any amount of reasoning.” I hope my audiences are happy with both, because to play bridge well, one must use reasoning. This deal is similar to yesterday’s, but with a key difference: The diamond ace has migrated from East to West. How does this card movement affect the hunt for the spade queen, if at all? South is still in four hearts. West again cashes two clubs, then shifts to a trump. Yesterday, I mentioned

that when advancing partner’s takeout double, not only do you show which suit you prefer, but you also give an indication of your hand’s high-card count. Sometimes, though, you bid in no-trump. An advance of one no-trump shows 6 to 9 points, two notrump indicates 10 to 12, and three no-trump promises 13 to 15. Remember that you should have strength in the opener’s suit because your partner has announced shortness there. And you probably should not have four cards in an unbid major. South loses two club tricks, draws trumps, and (assuming he is not clairvoyant) plays a diamond to dummy’s queen and a diamond back to his jack. West takes the trick and leads the club queen. After

ruffing on the board and cashing the diamond king to get the bad news, which way should South finesse in spades? West has shown up with 13 or 14 high-card points and a balanced hand. If he had the spade queen, he would have opened one notrump. East must have that card.

1922 - 2012 After a lifetime of devotion to family, friends and community, Irene Elsie Kelly passed away on February 29, 2012 with her daughter by her side.

Irene married Larry Kelly on June 16, 1945 shortly after his return from Bomber Command with the RCAF. They moved to Vernon, BC and started a family. Irene was an amazing homemaker and set up homes in Chilliwack, Germany, The Pas Manitoba and finally Vernon. She would spend her day in the garden or canning, care for her five children and still work the evening shift at the hospital. She supported Larry in his endeavor to be a dentist and the path that took them. She was never idle, keeping herself busy with volunteer service, knitting and finding treasures for all. Irene sent out countless care packages of Ranger cookies, mittens and thrift store treasures near and far. Irene kept up written correspondance with many and never missed a birthday. She believed in a simple life of hard work filled with simple pleasures, like tea in a fine bone china cup. Survived by her loving children Sharon (Ross) Edmondson, Susan (Jim) Lorden, Margaret (Rick) Gallagher, Gordon (Janis) Kelly; grandchildren Rhonda (Glen) Sage and Sandra (Stephan) Anderson, Kelly (Chris) Graham and Donna (Paul Salamandyk) Gallagher and Anne Kelly; great grandchildren Kirsten & Brendan Sage, Erik & Trigg Anderson, Lane & Connor Graham and Seth, Riane and Anson Salamandyk. Predeceased by her husband Larry in 1999 and her son George in 2012. Irene moved to Kamloops in 2006 to be closer to family as she struggled with Alzheimer’s. A heartfelt thank you to the loving staff of Pine Grove Care Centre and Linda Bonner-Brown for her companionship. Although this was a difficult time, Irene remained a ray of sunshine. Interment will occur at a later date in Vernon. You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she lived. You can close your eyes and hope that she comes back or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.

Born in Ontario April 12th 1930, her journey ended in Vernon Feb. 23, 2012 in her home with her family at her side. June was predeceased by her husband Dave Evans in 2007.

Mom grew up in Ontario, in her late teens she grew restless and headed for the Carolina’s full of adventure. She spoke of watching the original NASCAR Races and the infamous “Bootleg Turns’. As the 1950’s grew to a close mom headed home to Ontario, then by train to B.C. where she met and married Dave. The two tackled the remote areas of the Cariboo. Ranching in Lone Butte, Lac La Hache, Ashcroft and Merritt. From there it was onto Cranbrook where they gathered many lifelong friends. Mom and dad then moved to Vernon where they settled for over 20 years. After dad passed away, mom began collecting power tools! At age 80 she single handedly managed to install a 4x8 window in her art studio, then it was onto the roof to check for wear. It was in Vernon that she found her talent in painting and thoroughly enjoyed her painting group. Mom’s presence made life easier for everyone around her. She was a rock to her family and friends. She was compassionate, quick witted and had a fantastic sense of humor. Mom was full of vitality, energy and had an amazing ¿ghting spirit.

Mom has shaped our lives and made us who we are: and through us, because of us, her light continues to shine. “Be Happy that after 81 years, I have fought the ¿ght, run the race and reached the ¿nish line. I will be waiting for all of you!!”

His patience to love gracefully, Courage to love steadfastly, Energy to love consciously, And the spirit to have fun doing it. I was blessed with an extraordinary man to be my husband, and for that I am thankful. My lover, my mate, my beloved. You raised our children, raised them well, And it’s the truth our children tell...

This is a man who could be part of any group without compromising his individuality, who did not sink or climb for common ground on which he walked as balance as Buddha, and as equally indiscriminate. Our hearts hurt for him, as he gave so much and asked for so little, and for us who know....his is truly a loss to humanity.
