Massive Falkland grow-op busted Morning Star Staff

RCMP have shut down what they are calling one of the largest marijuana grow operations ever in the North Okanagan. On Wednesday, RCMP officers searched a rural property in the 4300 block of Culling Road in the Falkland area after a lengthy investigation. “The search located 13,383 marijuana plants is various stages of development in a large outbuilding,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson

VERNON TOYOTA

The operation was being run off a generator for its power supply. “This is one of the largest grow operations we have dismantled in the area,” said Sgt. Dave Evans, of the RCMP’s rural detachment. “This is just one more of the illegal grow operations we have targeted in our area. We will continue to conduct these kinds of investigations in the future.” A 38-year-old man was taken into custody at the Culling Road property.

Water park splashes to life RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Cooling off will become a lot more fun for Lumby youth. The community is moving ahead with a water spray park after the provincial government announced $348,258 for upgrades to Oval Park Tuesday. “It’s going to be amazing,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. “If we want youth in our community, we need facilities for them.” Presently, children have access to the swimming pool but it’s not well designed to handle toddlers. Besides the spray park for children, outdoor fitness equipment will be installed in Oval Park. “It’s a great project because it covers both ends of the demographic scale — children and adults,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, adding that

“If we want youth in our community, we need facilities for them.” — Kevin Acton the exercise equipment will be popular with seniors. “These kinds of projects enhance the community.” Foster believes it is important for the provincial government to assist communities with recreational amenities because of the cost of infrastructure. “Some times you get behind when you’re also having to deal with water, roads and sewer,” he said. The total price tag for the spray

park and fitness equipment will be $435,322, with Lumby and Cherryville taxpayers contributing $57,064. There will also be $30,000 from the Teddy’s Angels and Martin’s Devils ball teams and support from the Lumby Lions. “We are thankful these opportunities are available given the economic times,” said Rick Fairbairn, White Valley Parks and Recreation chairperson. “All of this provides an opportunity for the community to come together with a beautiful area the community can be proud of.” While there had been a concern about the spray park sending the wrong message about water conservation, Acton says any water used will be recycled. “We have to be responsible with our water and good stewards of the resource,” he said.

MAJOR MURAL

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

RICHARD ROLKE

The third-place finisher in the race for Vernon mayor outspent his competitors combined. Patrick Davies had expenses of $31,208 during the November election, while $19,689 was spent by Rob Sawatzky, who led the polls, and incumbent Wayne Lippert, who came second, had $10,900 in expenses. “My intention was to get a replacement for the mayor at the time and it happened. If it took $31,000, it was a good deal,” said Davies. “It would have been nice to win. But the success was we got people who had never voted before excited.” Davies put significant personal resources into his campaign, according to documents filed with the City of Vernon. He contributed $7,639 while there was $5,000 from Latitude Marine which he owns and $5,050 from Naked Media which operates out of his Patrick Davies house. Other donations included $4,000 from Walter Davies, $2,000 from Aldebaran Enterprises and $1,500 from Brad Chapman. The biggest expenses for Davies were advertising, signs and pamphlets. “As a businessperson out of nowhere and a young guy, we had to get out there and give everything we had,” said Davies. Of his $19,689 in expenses, Sawatzky directed most of it to getting the word out through signs and advertising. “It’s the sad reality that this is what you have to do,” said Sawatzky of the dollars required to launch a campaign. Sawatzky pumped $13,500 of his own money into his inaugural run for mayor. “Given that I didn’t have a high profile and business roots, I was OK with picking up the cost,” said Sawatzky. “I was looking at it as community service.” Sawatzky received $4,600 in donations worth more than $100 and $408 valued less than $99. His donors included $750 from Lakeside Developments and $500 each from Cecil Schmidt, Victor Cumming and Robert Ross. Sawatzky says he still doesn’t know who some of his supporters were and those issues were left to his business agent. “The more independence you can have the better,” he said of serving as mayor. Like the other mayoralty candidates, Lippert’s spending focused on creating public awareness. He had $10,850 in contributions over $100 and $50 under $99 in value. Among the donors were $3,000 from Wesbild Holdings, $1,000 from R.L. Walker Contracting and $500 each from Tavistock Properties, Okanagan Spirits and the Vernon Professional Firefighters Association. Documents indicate Lippert provided $100. Lippert could not be reached for comment. Of the 15 councillor candidates, Patrick Nicol, who topped the polls, spent $13,233 of his own money. Lily Kerr, who came in 13th, spent the least at $297, with $300 being donated by 1&2 Electric.

The man who tried to rob a Coldstream woman in the Lincoln Lanes parking lot in November has been given jail time. Judge Mark Takahashi sentenced Robin Edward Konkle, 41, to 20 months in prison in Vernon Provincial Court Wednesday, after Konkle pleaded guilty to armed robbery. Konkle was also ordered to provide a DNA sample, and was given a 10-year mandatory firearms prohibition. The woman had finished her bowling league games and was returning to her car in the parking lot on Nov. 25 when she was approached by a man the woman had seen inside the bowling alley drinking a pop and playing with his cell phone. The woman said the man demanded money as she opened her car door, and she instinctively pressed her car horn, scaring off the suspect. A video surveillance camera inside the bowling alley caught an image of the suspect, which local media broadcast. A man was arrested a few days later by Vernon RCMP, who received tips from the public thanks in part to the video footage.

City tops rate of ER cancer patients RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon leads the world when it comes to people arriving at the emergency room in pain and not knowing they have cancer. A recent study indicates that of 75 patients requiring colorectal cancer treatment between April 2009 and March 2010, 43 per cent showed up at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on an emergency basis for bowel obstruction, hemorrhages and perforations. They were first diagnosed with cancer while in the ER. “It’s very, very high. It ranges from six to 36 per cent (elsewhere),” said Dr. Hamish Hwang, a local surgeon who authored the study, which was published in the B.C. Medical Journal. “It’s the highest published data in the world.” He became intrigued with the topic after moving to Vernon six years ago. “I would see one of these patients about

“It’s the highest published data in the world.” — Dr. Hwang once a month. It’s unusual because I didn’t see it as often in Vancouver.” Hwang believes there may be a high number of colorectal cancer cases because of the region’s elderly population. Many aren’t being diagnosed early possibly because they don’t have a family doctor or they aren’t accessing health care services. “People, for some reason, are not going to see the doctor,” he said. Hwang also expects some people avoid screening because the colon is involved. “People are embarrassed but they shouldn’t

be.” Not being aware of the situation until a patient arrives in ER makes it more challenging for doctors if the cancer has spread. There is also pressure on limited space in the hospital. “The ones that come in emergency on average stay 24 days in the hospital, twice as long as non-emergency cases,” said Hwang. “When the hospital is at capacity, this is a huge burden.” Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in men and the third most in women. It is the leading cause of cancer death in non-smokers. Hwang is calling on the provincial government to initiate a colorectal screening program, something that currently doesn’t exist. “For countries with screening, emergency rates are lower. Italy is six per cent,” said Hwang. “There’s no checks and balances for these

people.” Hwang is also putting the onus on residents to become active in preventing the disease. “People need to take charge of their health,” he said. Hwang recommends colonoscopies for people with a family history of colon cancer and fecal occult blood tests or fecal immunochemical tests for anyone over age 50 (not covered by the Medical Services Plan). Hwang believes lessons can be learned from VJH as B.C.’s population continues to age. “Vernon is a crystal ball for the whole province. What’s happening in Vernon will be the whole province in 25 years,” he said of 22 per cent of the city’s total population being more than 65 years old. “Now is the time to be doing something. I hope this study is a wake-up call for the government and the public.”

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.”

Funding details for Vernon Jubilee Hospital are just a few weeks away. Health Minister Michael de Jong will be in Vernon April 2 or 3 to announce capital spending for new acute care beds in VJH’s Polson tower. “It will be a positive announcement and the details of the announcement will be released when he’s here,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA. Foster, community leaders, health care workers and residents have been demanding the two shelled-in floors in Eric Foster the tower be completed and beds added to resolve capacity issues. Overcrowding has led to cancelled surgeries and patients being kept in hallways. Foster hasn’t been given an indication if there will be funding for both floors or just one at this time. “I’d like two floors. There are financial benefits to doing the job all at once instead of spreading it out over two or three years,” he said. “I hope that whatever we do, it will relieve the backlog.”

We’re working hard to improve education.” School district officials say administrators will be unable to keep extracurricular programs going. “It will have a huge impact on the culture of schools and that worries me,” said Bev Rundell, superintendent, adding some sports may continue with community coaches. A priority will be grad planning. “Grad activities may be different if it’s just principals and vice-principals involved in the organizing,” said Rundell. Besides Vernon, teachers in other districts have decided to withdraw from extracurricular activities. They include KamloopsThompson, Sooke, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, Prince George, Peace River South, Creston, West Vancouver, Okanagan Skaha and Sea-to-Sky.
