Megan Gilowski gives her mom Sue, who is currently battling breast cancer, a hug of support at the CIBC Run for the Cure Sunday at Fulton. Threeyear-old JennaLee Langlois (below) gets some attention from Baby, whose owner appropriately dressed her and coloured her pink for the run.
Support unites survivors Her mom and dad had it, both of her sisters had it, and now Sue Gilowski has it. They all had breast cancer, but since conquering the trials and tribulations of the battle with the dreaded disease, what the family really has is determination. That determination shone through Sunday, as smiles radiated from Sue’s team of Inner Circles at the CIBC Run for the Cure. With her friends, family and co-workers cheering her on, Sue, diagnosed with breast cancer in December, is as determined to win her battle as she was to race through the run at Fulton. “It’s all good,” said Sue, her smile beaming under a hot pink sequined ball cap over her bald head. “I have lots of support from my family, friends and co-workers.” The 54-year-old mother of four and grand-
mother of three has always been an upbeat, energetic woman. However, between the 33 radiation treatments, surgeries, chemotherapy and the unpleasant after-effects, that bubbly spirit tends to wilt. But with the encouragement of her friends, family and co-workers, Sue gains strength and positive thoughts to get her through those tough days. “Positive thoughts give you positive results and she takes that with her when she’s sick and puking,” said Brian Gilowski, Sue’s husband. And after Sunday’s Run for the Cure, her positivity was in full force. Pink balloons filled the air and women, men, children and even dogs danced to an energetic warm-up before taking to the five-kilometre walk/run.

A Vernon man found deceased in Polson Park was not murdered. RCMP have wrapped up their investigation into the death of Terrance Fergus, 47, who was found Sept. 27 near the fountain at 25th Avenue and 32nd Street. “Foul play is not suspected,” said Cpl. Gerry Kovacs, with the Vernon detachment. Kovacs says that conclusion was reached after a thorough investigation and a forensic autopsy. Because homicide has been ruled out, the case has been turned over to the B.C. Coroners Service. “We don’t have a clear cause and we will have to do further investigation to try and determine that,” said Barb McLintock, B.C. Coroner Service spokesperson. Among the next steps will be toxicology tests and microscopic samples. The RCMP will assist the coroners service if required. McLintock can’t provide a specific timeline as to when the process will be completed. “It could be a couple of months,” she said. Fergus was found by passersby in the park at 9:30 p.m. and they initially called paramedics for assistance. Once it was determined Fergus was deceased, police officers responded to the scene. That portion of the park surrounding the fountain was closed for a couple of days during the investigation. A public appeal for information regarding Fergus was issued. “We got lots of tips and what was provided was very useful in the investigation,” said Kovacs. “We would like to thank the public for their assistance.”

News Rooftop food drive reaches new heights JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff
After spending a week camped out on top of the Village Green Centre, Jim Tennant is excited to be back on the ground. â€œIt feels good to be down,â€? said Tennant, manager of Save On Foods, after climbing down from his post Monday morning. While a hot shower would be a highlight of his day, Tennantâ€™s most memorable event came as his staff piled more than 30,000 pounds of food in front of the store. Thanks to the community and suppliers, thatâ€™s what Tennant helped raise for the Salvation Army food bank through his rooftop food drive. â€œIâ€™m in awe at how much came in and how much support came in from the community,â€? he said, staring at 13 pallets and 24 shopping carts overflowing with goods. That support more than doubled Tennantâ€™s original goal of raising 12,800 pounds of food. The donations have put the
Village Green Centre into a firstplace standing in a contest between 17 shopping centres to see who can raise the most for their local food bank. The Bentall Kennedy Fare Fight For Food Challenge will award a $10,000 grant to the winnerâ€™s partner food bank. The rooftop food drive has brought the overall Fare Fight For Food local drive up to about 50,000 pounds. The drive to collect non-perishable and monetary donations will continue in the mall until Oct. 31. â€œJimâ€™s started something great,â€? said Scott Adam, VGC manager. â€œThe efforts are continuing through the Salvation Army and the Village Green Centre.â€? And according to Tennant, the donations will continue to roll in, as he is still anticipating 6,000 pounds of turkeys from Save On Foods. The challenge also offers customers a chance to win free groceries for a year. Visit www.farefightforfood.ca to enter.

Funds support a future without breast cancer More than 500 people came out to support survivors like Sue and collectively they raised $66,722 towards a future without breast cancer. â€œIt just shows the support thatâ€™s out there,â€? said Sue, who walked arm-in-arm with her two sisters in the survivorâ€™s parade. And it gives her a boost in positive energy, which she will use for the additional treatments that lie ahead. There are also some statistics on Sueâ€™s side. According to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer now
sits at 91.8 per cent in B.C. And with the funds raised at Sundayâ€™s event ($3.15 million across B.C. and more than $30 million Canada-wide), the goal is to reach a future without breast cancer by 2020. Awards went to: 28-year-old survivor Megan Fofonoff-Huska â€“ Determination Award for the individual who raised the most donations. â€œIt was pretty spectacular to see, she had a huge crew of people running with her,â€? said Maritza Reilly, volunteer communications and promotions co-ordinator. Timmyâ€™s Team took the CIBC
Corporate Spirit Team Challenge Award for the most donations raised by a corporate team. The Pink Ladies won the Womenâ€™s Team Challenge Award for the team of women who raised the most donations and the Bosom and Buoyant Buddies were awarded the Friends and Family Team Challenge Award (presented by East Side Marioâ€™s) for the team in the community which raised the most donations. Volunteer run directors Lindsay Smith and Monica Tiggelaar commended the thousands of volunteers who made the event possible, saying: â€œFor them, this isnâ€™t about a oneday event with thousands of partici-
pants. This is one step in the journey towards a future when no one need fear a diagnosis of breast cancer.â€? Support for the run can continue to be sent in, visit www.cbcf.org or visit any CIBC branch. Several Vernon restaurants are also serving up support through the Tickled Pink Desserts campaign. Crush Bistro, Margherita Cafe, the Eclectic Med and Italian Kitchen are each featuring a Tickled Pink dessert, with partial proceeds of each sold until Oct. 14 going to the CBCF â€“ B.C. region. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Visit www.vernonmorningstar.

Country hunter missing Morning Star Staff
Police and Search and Rescue volunteers continue to look for a hunter near Lake Country. On Sunday at 1:20 p.m., the RCMP received a report of a 52-yearold Lake Country man who left Saturday for the evening but had not returned from the Wilma Lake area. “Police have located the man’s vehicle and are actively searching the surrounding area with a police service dog as well as members of Search and Rescue,” said Cst. Kris Clark, with the RCMP. Both Vernon and Central Okanagan Search and Rescue units are involved. Wilma Lake is accessed by Beaver Lake Road from Lake Country.

Winch rescue garners support RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A major breakthrough in helping lost and injured people could soon take flight. Vernon Search and Rescue has the $60,000 in place for its helicopter winch rescue program. “This method is used by the Canadian military, the coast guard and the Ministry of Forests for firefighting,” said Don Blakely, VSAR director. “We want to be the first Search and Rescue unit in Canada to do this.” The Regional District of North Okanagan provided $20,000 Saturday. “They are a fantastic volunteer group and they serve all residents,” said Patrick Nicol, RDNO chairperson, of VSAR. Another $7,500 came from Vernon Rotary, $10,000 from Kalamalka Rotary and $5,000 from Silver Star Rotary. The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan previously donated $7,500 and SAR has come up with $10,000. The money will go towards equipment and training. Presently, aerial rescues see people dangled under a helicopter by a line, while the new program uses a winch to lower a rescuer and then they and the lost or injured person are raised up to inside the helicopter. “It’s safer and quicker,” said Blakely.

Gyula Kiss also steered his conversations with ministry officials towards water, particularly licenses.
He suggests that more water licenses should be granted down stream, which would allow increased flows down area creeks and rivers. “It benefits not only the community but the fish in the creeks,” said Kiss. Coun. Maria Besso is pleased with the efforts made at UBCM. “I think we were good ambassadors for Coldstream and it was worth every taxpayer penny.”

diking district that should be in the act, and that the Fortune Creek district is not the same as districts on the coast in that it goes for miles and is not contained in one small parcel. “We told the minister that during the big flooding in the Okanagan this year, Fortune Creek was one of the only creeks that didn’t flood anybody out and is of no danger to anybody,” said Brown. Brown said the township was very firm with the minister that Spallumcheen was not prepared to take it over, especially after having been turned down for grant monies. The promised assessment still has not been completed. There are 45 properties on the FCDDD
with no access to equipment to bring the dike up to code. That was one of a number of meetings township representatives had with provincial leaders in Victoria. And while ministers repeated the government mantra of “there’s no money to hand out,” the township thanked leaders for past efforts. “We went to the highways minister and thanked them for the great work they did on the highway, then reminded them that they promised us a four-lane highway to Enderby,” said Brown. “We said if you can’t consider four-laning the highway, would you please consider a traffic light at McLeod subdivision, and improving the turn into the Log Barn.”

Enrolment drops in Vernon classrooms Morning Star Staff
Since the start of the 2012/13 school year, enrolment numbers continue to change, with less than 8,000 students in the Vernon School District from kindergarten to Grade 12. “Since our September 19 report, the numbers have changed and we are now at 4,492 elementary students and 3,324 secondary students, but if you add the projections for the alternate programs, we will be over 8,000 students, but this is the first time we’ve been under 8,000 students for kindergarten to Grade 12,” said district superintendent Bev Rundell. “This decline is a concern to our district as we want to continue to offer quality pro-
grams to our students.” The district had projected a decline of 120 students, but that number has now dropped by another 75.

oes anyone feel burned over Ironman? Just four days after Vernon submitted an official bid package, a dear John letter came from Ironman’s corporate office in Florida. They praised the community’s efforts, but ultimately it was nada, zip, the tribe has spoken. Everyone involved in putting the bid together was doing the stiff upper lip thing, but not making the short-list must have been gutwrenching. After all, the entire world — at least as we know it in the North Okanagan — ground to a halt over the 19 days the city actually had between being contacted about hosting opportunities and firing off a bid. For city staff, they Richard Rolke scrambled to find legitimate answers to all of the great unknowns. What would the economic benefit to the region be? What would be the financial commitment from taxpayers? Is it possible to pull together 4,500 volunteers? If Ironman is such a great thing, why did Penticton go another direction after three decades? Preliminary discussions were held with major local corporations to see if they would cough up sponsorship bucks. Extraordinary steps were taken to determine public input through newspaper advertising and social media. Other city business was shoved off to the side as the rapid-fire deadline drew near. The politicians were also kept busy as the burden of making a decision rested with them. The mayor’s office became a virtual call centre as Rob Sawatzky worked the phones and lobbied adjacent jurisdictions. A Vernon bid would only be successful if there was regional

support because cycling and running routes would range from Lake Country to Salmon Arm. And there was a domino-effect because the other municipal councils had to adjust already posted agendas or hold special meetings to decide if they would come on board. City of Vernon staff did the travelling dogand-pony show where needed. Outside of the political realm, residents were also jumping through hoops. A group of dedicated triathletes tried to create a buzz over Ironman, including signing up potential volunteers at booths at the Vernon Farmers Market and the Village Green Centre. While endurance is nothing new to them, galvanizing the community put these athletes through the paces. Everyone was working towards a common goal — the Oct. 10 announcement of the new Ironman Canada host. Awareness of a shortlist wasn’t widely known and certainly not publicized by Ironman’s parent company. In fact, Friday’s announcement that Vernon didn’t make the cut was even questionably handled — a three paragraph statement in Triathlon Magazine Canada broke the news. After an actual phone call with Florida, City of Vernon officials were forced to crank out a press release late Friday — a time when they and the media are dreaming about the weekend. To all local government staff and politicians, and particularly the triathletes and residents who got involved in preparing a bid, my hat goes off to you. You truly demonstrated the passion and vision of the North Okanagan and what truly makes this a great place to call home. There are a lot of reasons to be proud about what went on, but after jumping through corporate hoops only to be cast aside, one can’t help but feel hollow.
The choice of Judith Guichon as B.C.’s new lieutenant governor is a significant nod to the Interior. Very few of this province’s 28 previous lieutenant governors have had significant connections to the Interior, despite the fact that it makes up much of B.C.’s geography, and has been the source of much wealth for all residents. While Iona Campagnolo, the only other woman to hold the position, lived for some time in Prince Rupert, she was the last lieutenant governor with strong Interior connections since Robert Randolph Bruce, who established a mine near in the East Kootenay in 1887 and served as lieutenant governor from 1926 to 1931. Most of B.C.’s lieutenant governors have been involved in the business community in either Vancouver, Victoria or both. One was a former premier of Quebec who never lived in B.C. until his appointment. While the Vancouver-Victoria axis has been a dominant force in much of B.C.’s political and economic history, it is important that lieutenant governors represent the whole province, and all of its varied peoples. Outgoing Lt.-Gov. Steven Point is a shining example of this, as the first person from B.C.’s culturally rich and diverse First Nations to serve in the position. He has been a very good representative of the Queen. Another example of a valued Queen’s representative was David Lam, who served from 1988 to 1995 and was the first AsianCanadian in the position. Guichon, who has introduced holistic management to the cattle ranching business, is a longtime resident of the Nicola Valley. She should be a significant addition to the lieutenant governor roster. — Langley Times

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
Wildfire threat is a reality
t’s been almost 10 years since the catastrophic 2003 Okanagan Mountain fire and three years since the 2009 West Kelowna fires. The last couple years, inclusive of this one, it seemed like the Okanagan would escape the fire season. This notion was quashed late in this season as the Okanagan repeatedly experienced interface wildfires, most recently the wildfire in Peachland that destroyed several homes. As a past government wildland firefighter and current registered professional forester, I make my living specializing in wildfire and fuel management in the Okanagan. I’ve been involved with wildfires in some capacity for 20 years. I’ve seen the awesome power of wildfire. I’ve seen valiant efforts on the part of wildland and structural firefighters, as well as amazing flying by pilots, to save people’s homes. I’ve heard the ‘armchair quarterbacks’ criticize suppression tactics and efforts of my fellow firefighters, regardless of their efforts and the dangers they face on the fireline or in the air. Much has changed in my 20 years in the wildfire business: tactics, technology, aircraft, local government prevention, etc. However, there is one prominent factor that remains consistent and will continue through time: wildfire is not going away. Wildfire is an integral disturbance force in the Okanagan. Our forest and grasslands developed according to the intensity and frequency of wildfire occurrence (called a fire regime). We must accept and live with the under-
standing that wildfires will continue to occur. However, all is not as lugubrious as the above sounds, as we do not need to live with such destructive losses and impacts from wildfire as those experienced most recently in Peachland. Local governments and home owners can play a part is community wildfire risk reduction. Over the past eight years, the provincial and local governments have been undertaking community wildfire management and interface fuel management treatments. That is, they are working towards addressing this wildfire risk in their community plans and policies and developing the means to reduce both the risk and effects of interface wildfires. Through preventative fuel management treatments, communities are abating the interface fuel hazard. With decreased fuel loading around, and within, communities, the resultant effect should be less intense interface fires and less potential for structural losses.
MUCH THANKS Thank you seems like such a small word when it means so very much. Thank you to everybody at The Morning Star newspaper for helping us to spread the story of Hayley's plight. Thank you to a community that has opened their hearts and allowed us in. Community is an amazing word, and we live in a community filled with people that are kind, thoughtful, and generously want to support each other. Never give up faith in the power of community.

The aforementioned work is expensive, requires pre-planning, professional prescriptions, community support, in-kind local government funds and political will, and moves according to quarterly government deadlines. As such, it is a time consuming and slow process. In as much as local governments continue to pursue such community protection, and that this work is a worthwhile endeavour, the greatest impact on reducing wildfire effects will be realized by the collaborative efforts of individual home owners; particularly those living on the perimeter interface areas of Okanagan communities. I’ve helped local Okanagan governments develop policies that direct developers towards building subdivisions and homes that take into account wildfire risk and decrease the potential impacts of wildfire. This is a meaningful endeavour by local governments to risk-reduce new developments. However, it has no impact on the vast development already con-
Surgery has become a reality for Hayley McDougall, and we couldn't be more grateful for the help that has allowed us to go forward with this. No sooner did I let the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix know that we were able to come, and they had a date for us. We have days worth of pre-op testing and appointments, then surgery itself is Oct. 4. I guess I will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner in Phoenix. We will give Hayley a few days to recover and
structed without regard for the existing wildfire risk. Individual homeowners can undertake activities to abate the risk to their homes and properties. This is achieved through creating defensible space around a home; a zone within which fire behaviour is greatly reduced and professional fire fighters can anchor their suppression tactics and safely attempt to protect homes from an approaching wildfire. This defensible space is often obtained simply through removing yard debris, appropriate landscaping, and appropriate building materials. Defensible space, or lack thereof, is often why one home burns and the adjacent home does not (but not necessarily the sole reason). The Partners in Protection FireSmart Manual is an excellent source for pursuing risk reduction and creating defensible space and every homeowner should read it if they are located with the wildlandurban interface. We will never fireproof communities. Wildfire potential will always exist and, under extenuating circumstances and extreme conditions, homes may be lost regardless of our preventative actions. However, through the ongoing concerted efforts of local governments and the collaborative action of individual homeowners, we can work towards greatly reducing such losses. The responsibility for community wildfire reduction is a shared one. John Davies, RPF wildfire management specialist

POLSON MESS After a recent visit to Polson Park, I was totally disgusted with what I saw. Obviously there is an overpopulation of geese, ducks and pigeons. Everything from sidewalks to benches was covered in their droppings. The once beautiful pond is a mess as well. Why all of the swampy areas in the lawn? So folks, if you want to visit the once beautiful Polson Park, make sure you bring a pair of gumboots. So to the City of Vernon, make our park look respectable once again. Don't let it go to the geese. Helena Wille

Teachers cast eye to next round of talks KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff
Thereâ€™s good news and bad news for teachers in the Vernon School District this year. Vernon Teachersâ€™ Association president Kevin Bader said while last yearâ€™s job action has
led to the current collective agreement, bargaining will resume in the spring. â€œThe good news is we have a new agreement, the bad news is that there is nothing in the new agreement that addresses class size
and composition,â€? said Bader. â€œThe new agreement is retroactive to the last school year and goes to the end of this school year, so no job action this year, but bargaining will resume again in the spring.â€?
Bader said the B.C. Teachersâ€™ Federation continues talks with its employer, the B.C. Public School Employersâ€™ Association. â€œLast year was difficult for teachers for many reasons,â€? said Bader. â€œTeachers have

Dance to the rumba flamenco of John Gilliat DVOIRA YANOVSKY For The Morning Star
Guitarist John Gilliat brings his quartet to the Vernon Jazz Club for a fiery flamenco performance on Saturday.
Flamenco fire rekindles the Vernon Jazz Club when the high energy John Gilliat Quartet returns this Saturday. Guitarist Gilliat is joined by new band member multi-instrumentalist Rossi Tzonkov who performs on bass guitar, Spanish guitar, Caribbean steel drums, and vocals. Brent Gubbels on bass and Lyndon Dewitt on percussion complete the quartet. The band performs a unique global blend of rhumba flamenco, rock, Latin jazz, swing, and Caribbean. The evening will feature a terrific fusion of pop and Latin jazz classics, from Duke Ellington’s Caravan and Michael Bublé’s Sway, to rock classics by Santana, The Eagles, and many more. “My influences come from so many guitarists like David Gilmour, Al Di Meola, Steve Morse, Vicente Amigo, Django Reinhardt, and Ottmar Liebert,” said Gilliat. A West Coast Music Award nominee, Gilliat has toured throughout North America and Japan, including performances at Japan’s 2005 Expo and Canada’s 2010 Winter Olympics. His recordings have been used for documentaries, television, and film in North America, Japan, Ireland, and the U.K. Gilliat also found inspiration for his music in nuevo flamenco guitarist Ottmar Liebert. “One day my in-laws took my wife and I to see Natalie Cole and opening for Natalie was guitarist Ottmar Liebert. I was blown away by that performance. I decided to create the same type of band,” said Gilliat. Gilliat’s dedication has been richly rewarded with a highly successful performing and recording career, performing with notable artists like blues guitarist Jimmy D. Lane and rock band Hinder, and opening for Cirque du Soleil and Mae Moore. He has recorded five CDs to date, including 2009’s Winter Strings, and an
instructional guitar DVD. Gilliat’s latest inspiration is working with new member Tzonkov. “It’s very refreshing to have met someone such as Rossi to collaborate with. I feel as though we are going to create and achieve some magnificent projects.” Gilliat performs in two new ensembles with Tzonkov: Carumba, a SpanishCaribbean fusion, and Ritmo Caliente, a modern fusion of electric and flamenco guitar. Gilliat has also been in the studio recording a new album with rising jazz star Olga Osipova. Embracing a wide variety of styles, European-born Tzonkov has toured extensively in South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, and Europe. He has performed at many prestigious events, including the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Gubbels studied music at Capilano College and with internationally known bassists such as Rene Worst and David Brown. He has performed folk, roots, jazz, and Latin music with artists such as Oscar Lopez, James Keelaghan, Susan Crowe and Dal Richards. For the past 20 years, Gubbels has toured North American and Europe, playing a variety of international jazz and folk festivals. Dewitt began studying drums with Bill Williams before enrolling in the Douglas College music program. There he had the opportunity to study with Vancouver’s great percussionist, educator, and producer Sal Ferreras. Dewitt draws inspiration from drummers such as Buddy Rich and Neil Peart, and in particular, Police drummer Stewart Copeland who he says pushes the limits of creativity and style. Saturday’s performance by the John Gilliat Quartet starts at 8 p.m. Doors to the Vernon Jazz Club, 3000-31st St., open at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the Bean Scene and Bean to Cup coffee houses or online at www.vernonjazzclub.ca.
Venue changed for Andrew Allen concert Morning Star Staff
The Andrew Allen concert originally scheduled for Vernon’s Wesbild Centre on Oct. 19 has been changed to a new venue. The show will now take place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on the same date. The Friday show is vir-
tually sold out, so people can put their names down on a waiting list for a possible additional concert date on Thursday, Oct. 18, said Allen, adding the reason for the change of venue was to make the concert a more intimate affair. “The dancers are working
on their parts of the show and there are also actors. The set is going to look like a coffee shop. If it had been in Wesbild it would have lost some of its power. It will also be more audible in the Performing Arts Centre,” said Allen. Those who purchased VIP seated tickets and gen-
eral admission tickets for the Wesbild show will be contacted by the Ticket Seller in regards to seating in the Performing Arts Centre. For more information, or to be put on the waiting list, contact the Ticket Seller box office at 250-549-7469 or visit www. ticketseller.ca.

Arts JPOD the beat chef to spin for Thanksgivin’er Morning Star Staff
Shambhala fave JPOD and a group of local DJs are Thanksgivin’er Saturday at Vernon’s Club 2929. Formerly of Vernon, one of the country’s hottest spin meisters JPOD the beat chef is back home for the holidays and ready to throw down. “After major appearances at Canada’s premier electronic music festival, better known as Shambhala, and Nevada’s infamous Burning Man, JPOD is hotter than ever and ready to bring that same energy right here to 2929,” said Josh Brazier, with 13th Floor Entertainment, who along with Bassbong Records are promoters of the show. “We are also celebrating Jay Dyck’s (of the ElectroFunkers) birthday so come for that and Dee Bass is also on the decks to make it one heck of a party.” Known for his precise musical and technical skills, JPOD plays many styles including glitch-hop, nu-funk, hip-hop, dancehall, world fusion and breaks, all live-mashed together with samples and a cappellas. JPOD started producing at the age of 15 and was then inspired by turntables. He taught himself the movements of scratching before even touching a crossfader. At 19, he began DJing and instantly adapted his musical ear to mixing. He held a residency at Kelowna’s Higher Ground, and

He has been a staple in the Fractal Forest at Salmo’s Shambhala Music Festival, performing both solo and in a duo called the StickyPod Connection. JPOD also runs a digital label/tool shop
called Swing Set Sounds. This project is based on the belief that the future of DJing is edits, remixes and live remixing and that the necessary tools should be more readily available. JPOD has released several EPs through Swing Set, a remix album of gospel and bluegrass favourites and his debut alloriginal album, Halfsteppin, which was released earlier this year. He also has made remixes for various labels such as ESL, Fort Knox Recordings, Bombastic Jam and others and is known to frequently create signature-sounding bootleg remixes that are always free downloads. 13th Floor and Bassbong have also announced that they have booked Whistler-turned-international DJ Mat the Alien for a Halloween show, Oct. 27. Called Nightmare on 29th Street, the event is scheduled to be held at Club 2929, which is located at the corner of 29th Street and 29th Avenue in downtown Vernon. “It’s going to be a massive Halloween party,” said Brazier. “This guy is an absolute legend in the electronic music scene and we can’t believe we’re able to bring him to little old Vernon.” Tickets are $10 for Saturday’s Thanksgivin’er show at Club 2929 and are available in advance at the Downtown Internet Lounge on 30th Avenue, next to the Towne Cinema.

The goal is to raise $200,000 by June 2013. Funds raised will help reach 22,500 students across B.C. and train 250 youth facilitators to help prevent bullying and other types of violence and abuse in schools. The campaign is part of the Canadian Red Cross RespectED: Violence & Abuse Prevention program. The film was made in collaboration with Reel Youth and funding was provided by the United Way of the Lower Mainland.

Bullying is an important tool for schools and parents and will help open up dialogue in schools, homes, community centres and amongst anyone interested in helping put an end to bullying.” Re-Anna Bruno, a youth who is featured in the film, said many parents feel helpless if their kids tell them they are experiencing bullying. “So a group of us came together to give our perspectives on how youth who are being bullied at school can be supported at home,” she said.

enjoy it, and just started listening to a lot of it and discovered some of my favourite drummers, and then I was full on jazz man. But I enjoy metal, too: bands like Periphery and Born Of Osiris.” Doing most of his listening on iTunes, Harwood-Jones said there are too many drummers who cheat, using electronic drums and adjusting the sound after recording. “But one drummer I really admire is Stef Broks, with Dutch metal band Textures. He’s really legit.” Encouraged by Kath Raeber, founder of Our Kids Have Talent and Rarearth Music Festival, Harwood-Jones was in Grade 11 or 12 when he started thinking a career as a musician was a real possibility. “Kath started encouraging me, she was really supportive, and made me think this really is something I can do professionally,” he said. “I’m lucky to be able to do this, it’s great living at home and since I’m not going to school during the day I can play while everyone is at work.” Six degrees of separation: Justin Bieber was discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun, who has just signed Psy, who inspired Harwood-Jones’ latest video. He may not be seeking superstardom, but if the online video site leads to life as a working musician, it will have done its job.
A South Korean hit song that has soared to the top of the music charts has an unexpected Vernon connection. Gangnam Style is the hit song recorded by Psy, which has the most liked video in YouTube history and has reached the top of the U.K. charts, thanks to its catchy tune and its accompanying signature dance moves. Vernon musician Matt Harwood-Jones, 19, has taken the popular tune, put his own spin on it and posted it to YouTube. Quickly going viral, his video has had more than one million hits. “I love K-Pop (Korean Pop), so I saw this video and one day I was doing the dance and I was like, ‘hey I can do this on the drums,’ because the hand motions fit perfectly on the drums, so I incorporated the Gangnam style on the drums,” said Harwood-Jones, a graduate of W.L. Seaton secondary school. “I think the popularity of the video is that it’s just so funny so when I made my video, people also saw that I’m a good player — skill and humour are a good combination.” But humour aside, Harwood-Jones takes his craft seriously. Accepted into the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, he was set to begin studies there, but decided to stay closer to home for the first year, attending Selkirk College in Nelson instead.
And now, instead of spending the next few years in school, racking up thousands of dollars in debt, the drummer just wants to get his name out there and make his living as a musician. “I want to be a professional musician and I feel that YouTube is the best way to build a fan base. Over the past five days, I’ve had 1,229 subscribers.” Working part-time at The Rice Box, Harwood-Jones spends the rest of his time in his home studio, playing, practising and making videos for uploading to his YouTube channel. “I posted my first video about a year ago and this last one just went insane. I have a friend I play Starcraft with, he posted it on Reddit and it went to the front page and then it exploded. YouTube started to trend where they can see how much traffic you’re getting — I was totally shocked.” Harwood-Jones plans on demonstrating a wide variety of genres in his videos and admits that while he’s happy to be living at home for now, his eventual goal is to relocate to a bigger city. And, while he’s got a thing for K-Pop, his first love remains jazz, crediting his dad, Chris Harwood-Jones, for piquing his interest in the genre. “My dad always listened to jazz and fusion, and one day I just really started to

Pluck a prune plum
rune plums were one of my least favourites when I was a kid, probably because every family in the area seemed to have a tree. It didn’t help that we ate them before they were nice and juicy ripe either. For us, these plums were perfect as ammunition in play, or to throw at empty tin cans, wandering dogs, or neighbourhood friends. No respect in those days for this wonderfully versatile fruit! For us kids it was eat them raw, eat them canned, or don’t eat them at all. I never liked them canned or jammed and I can’t remember ever sinking my teeth into a warm delicious plum coffee cake, or any prune/ plum dessert for that matter Cathi Litzenberger Today, prune plums are one of my favourites for baking into muffins, cakes, pies, sauces, desserts of all kinds, and for canning into a variety of recipes to accompany meats and other entrées. A simple dessert is to halve the plums along their indentation, toss them in sugar, flour and cinnamon and bake in individual ramekins. Top with a crumble, or simply bake and garnish with a dollop of crème fraîche. Delicious! Today’s recipes feature the lowly prune plum. The first is a Chinese plum sauce, perfect with egg rolls or brushed over chicken or ribs on the grill. Canned, it makes a perfect gift to pass along. The second recipe is a mouthwatering coffee cake. Enjoy. Chinese Plum Sauce 8 cups plums, pitted, halved (3 lb/1.5 kg) 1 cup onion, chopped 1 cup water 1 tsp. gingerroot, minced 1 clove garlic, minced 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup rice vinegar or 1/2 cup cider vinegar 1 tsp. coriander, ground 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper 1/4 tsp. clove In large heavy saucepan, bring plums, onions,

water, ginger and garlic to boil over medium heat; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until plums and onions are very tender, about 30 minutes. Press through food mill or sieve and return to clean pan; stir in sugar, vinegar, coriander, salt, cinnamon, pepper and cloves. Bring to boil, stirring; reduce heat to low and simmer until mixture reaches consistency of applesauce, about 45 minutes. Fill and seal jars; process in boiling water bath for 30 minutes. Makes about 4 cups Plum Coffee Cake 1- 1/4 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup ground almonds 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup flavourless oil (safflower, corn, or canola) 1/2 cup whole milk plain yogurt 1/4 cup orange juice 1 tablespoon orange zest 1 large egg 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract 1 cup granulated white sugar 7 - 8 Italian prune plums, halved and pitted (enough to cover cake) 2 tablespoons coarse brown sugar for garnish (I like to use Turbinado or Demerara) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place rack in centre of oven. Butter and flour one 8-inch spring form pan. (Alternatively spray pan with non-stick vegetable/flour spray.) Line the bottom of pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir or whisk together the flour, ground almonds, baking powder and salt. In another large bowl, stir or whisk together the oil, yogurt, orange juice and zest, egg and vanilla extract. Stir in the sugar. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Scrape batter into prepared pan and evenly arrange the halved plums on top of the batter, flesh side facing up. Sprinkle with the 1 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar. Bake in preheated oven about 35 to 45 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool. Makes one 8-inch cake. Serve warm with dollop of whipped cream if you wish.

Life Restorative yoga eases the stress
BOWLING FOR A CAUSE

Vernon Lawn Bowling Club member Danny Loo raised $457 toward the clubâ€™s tally of $2,347 at their fundraising 24-hour Bowlathon recently, in aid of the United Way. Loo bowled for 10 of those 24 hours. The club has wrapped for the season; for more details, see vernonlawnbowlingclub.com
The Inner Light Yoga and Wellness Studio in Vernon is now offering restorative yoga classes. New owner Elara has introduced the program due to public demand. â€œSince taking ownership of the studio I have had numerous requests from people who were recommended restorative yoga by their medical and healing professionals,â€? she said. Restorative yoga is a relaxation treatment for many physical and stress related conditions. David Spiegel, MD, author of Living Beyond Limits, said many physical problems can be influenced by psychological interventions. â€œMind and body are connected and must work together, and this should be a powerful asset in treating medical illness,â€? he said. Restorative yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful yoga postures, supported by aids such as bolsters, pillows and rolled-up blankets. The relaxation provided stimulates the nervous system, allowing the body to renew and heal. Many studies
Time to bring plants inside
was in Quebec City for a short five-day trip for my brotherâ€™s 60th birthday. We had a very nice family reunion. The end of September to early October is apple picking in many farms and Orleans Island just outside the city is one of the favourite sites. I had a few calls regarding overwintering geraniums. Geraniums actually make decent houseplants, if you can provide them with lots of bright light. They like a cool temperature, so if you keep your thermostat low, they should be happy. But theyâ€™ll start to look gangly and gawky if you donâ€™t provide enough light. A bright west or south facing window or grow lights are crucial. Just donâ€™t keep the plants too close to a window that gets a draft. Bring your plants indoors before the first frost (now). Check your geraniums closely for signs of insects or disease. Dig and pot up healthy plants with good potting soil and prune them back by about 1/2. It may seem harsh, but it will help them adjust in the long run. Give them a good dose of water when you first bring them in, then allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Geraniums seem to like a little drought stress; it keeps them blooming more frequently. Keep an eye out for the usual

Allow the plant to dry off before replacing the paper bag. About six weeks before the last expected frost, bring your geraniums back into indirect light. If theyâ€™re bare root, pot them up. Bare root plants can also be soaked in water for several hours before potting, to re-hydrate the roots.
have shown the physical and emotional benefits of this style of yoga. â€œWe will begin by offering restorative yoga classes, followed by workshops and seminars,â€? said Elara. â€œWe would like to educate people on restorative yoga, and on the value of yoga in general.â€? Elaraâ€™s aim has been to generate a wellness studio, offering various wellness modalities to complement the existing yoga program. For more details, see www.innerlightyoga.info

Hikers and snowmobilers will soon be able to journey into the past. Restoration of the Mara Mountain forest fire lookout, near Kingfisher, is currently underway. “We want it to be a really neat destination,” said John Glastie, with Recreation Sites and Trails B.C., a branch of the Ministry of Forests. The original 1922 foundation remains and coal boxes are still visible. The rest of the structure dates back to 1950. “It was starting to fall into disrepair,” said Glastie, adding that the lookout was decommissioned for fire surveillance in 1994. Once restoration is completed in mid-October, the facility will be jointly managed by Recreation Sites and Trails and the Kingfisher Historical
Society. It’s anticipated the lookout will be popular with recreational enthusiasts including hikers and snowmobilers. “It’s really beautiful there. You can walk for miles in a sub-alpine environment,” said Glastie. A woodstove will be installed in the structure. “It will be a shelter if people get up there and the weather turns on them,” said Glastie. Forest fire lookouts played a role in the early detection of wildfires until they were replaced by new technology, improved public reporting and aerial detection. Recreation Sites and Trails B.C is currently looking at other lookouts that could be restored. “It’s a great time because we’re aggressively moving ahead to save these structures,” said Glastie, a former assistant ranger.

BCGEU deal reached Black Press
The B.C. government has reached a tentative agreement with its largest employee group, as the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union has recommended acceptance of a two-year agreement with a four per cent raise. BCGEU president Darryl Walker said the government dropped its proposal to sell the Liquor Distribution Branch warehouse and delivery system, which was “huge” for the union and a step towards privatizing government liquor stores. “We think this is the spine of the system,” Walker said. “Without this we would perhaps have lost the whole system.” Premier Christy Clark said the settlement meets the government’s “co-operative gains” bargaining mandate, where savings and efficiencies cover the costs of pay increases, but offered few details. Walker said the 26,000-member union agreed to work with the government to reduce sick days and find new efficiencies in operations that include ministry operations, social workers, and provincial prison and court services.

Okanagan Nation inks deal with UBCO ALISTAIR WATERS Morning Star Staff
The Okanagan Nation Alliance and its member communities have renewed a memorandum of understanding with the University of B.C. Okanagan to further aboriginal education. Since welcoming UBC in 2005, the Okanagan Nation has established a long-term relationship with the university. The memorandum of understanding with UBCO underlines the importance, opportunities and benefits of higher edu-
“The renewal continues to embrace the spirit.” — Stewart Phillip cation for indigenous people of the Southern Interior, say local First Nation leaders. ONA chairperson Stewart Phillip said the bonds developed with UBC are very important to the Okanagan people.
“The renewal of the MOU continues to embrace the spirit and intent of the original signing which values distinct cultures, languages, territory, life-long excellence in learning and respect for indigenous peoples and their lands,”
said Phillip. Deborah Buszard, principal of UBC’s Okanagan campus, believes the Okanagan people, their traditions, culture and future are essential to the university. “We are honoured that UBC has been welcomed into the traditional territory of the Okanagan Nation, and are thankful that we have been so warmly embraced by the aboriginal community,” she said. “Renewing our agreement with the Okanagan Nation Alliance ensures that the opportunities for
higher education will continue to be available to these First Nations of the Southern Interior. Our joint initiatives are dedicated to this goal and reflect the high value we put on our relationship.” Since the first agreement was signed between the ONA and UBCO in 2005, the number of aboriginal students at the university has grown to 300 from just 45. Buszard said the number today is more than four times the number the province currently funds the school for.

Cotter sizzles for Prestige payday KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
Jim Cotter was literally a rock star Monday night at the Vernon Curling Club. He one-upped every spectacular shot Jamie King’s Edmonton rink tossed for a 7-3 victory in the men’s final of the $26,000 World Curling Tour Prestige Hotels Curling Classic. Cotter, who played third for 2008-09 champion Bob Ursel of Kelowna, won his first Vernon cashspiel as a skip. He was backed by newcomer Jason (The Gunner) Gunnlaugson at third, and Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky on the front end. Sawatsky was lead for those two Ursel-winning teams. Cotter, who took the long and winding C event road to the final six, collected $7,000. King, with Blake MacDonald throwing skip rocks, Scott Pfeifer and Jeff Erickson aboard, took home $5,000. King won the Saville Shootout two weeks ago in Edmonton. “It’s a new team so we had to maximize our games,” laughed Cotter, seconds after being bearhugged by his young daughter, Emerson. “It all worked out good. Even after our second loss, we thought we played well. (Sean of New Westminster) Geall had a good team and that one kind of slipped away. “We just knew we’d be OK if we stuck to our game-plan. We believe in one another. I know it’s a cliche, but you gotta stick together which we did and just slowly progressed from there and got better and better.” Sawatsky and Griffith, in his second year with the team, earned their showers with hard sweeping and Gunnlaugson almost

throw a rock with a four-second peel (time measured from hogline to hogline). Some of his shots were captured on Youtube from the 2008 Canadian Mixed Tournament. His female teammates were unable to keep up with the speed of the rock. A nephew of curling great Garry VanDenBerghe, now of Vernon, Gunnlaugson had a front-row seat for Cotter’s magical performance. “I just got to scream my head off and the sweepers pounded it and Jimmy was making lots of shots. We played well, top to bottom, all weekend. We started off slow and then we really got it rolling, but there was some special hitting by Jim in the end that got ‘er done.” Gunnlaugson also gave props to MacDonald, who delivered a game-saving shot for a deuce in the fifth end. “The shot that Blake made in five. Goodness, gracious, he made a (Al) Hackner double. He hit like less than a centimetre of rock, kicked it over three inches and made the back one and stuck. It was unbelievable; it looked like it was gonna be handshakes there. “Blake’s just so dangerous; it’s always so scary to give him any opportunity. And the guys with him, this is for two bonspiels in a row so obviously they’re playing out of their minds so it’s fun to win.” Cotter, a computer programmer, stopped Jay Wakefield of New Westminster 6-3, while King toppled Steve Petryk of Calgary in the noon semifinals Monday.

Nedohin takes long route to Classic crown KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
Heather Nedohin should have her voice back for Thanksgiving dinner. The 37-year-old Edmonton skip and mother of two could barely talk after playing 10 games in the $35,000 Prestige Hotels Curling Classic at the Vernon Curling Club. Nedohin iced 21-year-old Anna Sidorova of Moscow 8-2 in the women’s final Sunday afternoon, pocketing $9,000. “Typically, it means we’ve had lot of games and made lots of good shots,” chuckled Nedohin, asked if going hoarse was a good thing. “We came here to work on a couple different aspects of our game based on adding our fifth (Amy Nixon) into the lineup. We did that and then we got a better read of the ice.” Nedohin, who won a bronze medal at last year’s worlds in Lethbridge after winning the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Red Deer, was supported by third Beth Iskiw and a front end of Jessica Mair and Laine Peters. The Canadian champions put up three points in the third and fifth ends to stop the Russians, who posted their best-ever finish in Vernon, taking home $6,500. “I’m not surprised,” said Nedohin, of Russia’s showing. “I think all teams, in preparation for 2014 (Olympics in Sochi, Russia), are sending their best and training
hard and focussing on everything. As you can see who made the final eight, there are a lot of international teams in preparation mode for 2014.” Sidorova was a late addition to Team Russia for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. For their fifth match, against the USA, and the sixth match, against Switzerland, Sidorova replaced Ludmila Privivkova as skip. She also replaced Privivkova in Game 8 against China. Sidorova thus became the youngest skip at the Games. “We are pretty glad that we are second because it’s a very strong tournament,” said Sidorova, in her final university year of studying public relations. “Before this one (Edmonton Saville Shootout), we played not so good so we are getting better and better. So, it feels really good.” The Russians, who had Privivkova at third, Margarita Fomina at second and Ekatrina Galkina at lead, headed back to Moscow Tuesday and will then play a cashspiel in Switzerland before returning to Canada for events in Red Deer and Brantford. Asked if representing her country in the Sochi Olympics was the plan, Sidorova smiled and replied: “For sure, we would like to medal and the main goal is gold.” Nedohin, meanwhile, took the tourist route to the finals, winning eight of 10 games after losing preliminary games to former teammate Kristie Moore of Calgary and Valerie Sweeting of Edmonton.

Heather Nedohin calls on sweepers Jessica Mair (left) and Laine Peters in Sunday's final of the Prestige Hotels Curling Classic Sunday at the Vernon Curling Club. Nedohin brushed back Renee Sonenberg of Grande Prairie 6-4, while Sidorova toppled Shannon Kleibrink of Calgary 6-4 in Sunday’s semifinals. Kleibrink, whose rink won the classic last year (with her on leave after cancer surgery) and 2008, and Sonneberg each collected $5,000. In the quarterfinals of the 32-rink affair, Sidorova stopped Crystal Webster of Calgary
8-2, Kleibrink bounced Satsuki Fujisawa of Japan 8-2, Sonnenberg outlasted Mirjam Ott of Switzerland 7-5 and Nedohin brushed off Sweeting 7-1. The losing quarterfinalists each collected $3,000. Nedohin is married to David Nedohin, who won four Canadian championships and three world titles throwing fourth stones for Randy Ferbey.

Mustangs knock off Prince George Morning Star Staff
The Watkin Motors Mustangs swept the visiting Prince George Cougars 6-4 and 6-3 to open the Tier 1 Pee Wee hockey season. It was the Mustang veterans and a fresh-faced rookie leading the way Saturday at Civic Arena. Second-year defenceman Powell Connor opened the scoring with a laser over the blocker of the Cougar netminder. Rookie Rowan Miller kept the pressure on with a tapin, followed shortly with another Mustang veteran, Dylan Sedlacek, putting Vernon up three with a shot from the slot that went top shelf. The Cougars clawed back with three unanswered goals but the Mustangs recovered and bucked off the Cougars with the winner coming from CJ Storey early in the third during a scramble. Nicholas Cherkowski and Miller added insurance goals. Jordan Wilde stood tall between the pipes and Julie Gilowski and Dawson Chase added strong physical play on the back end. On Sunday, the Mustangs allowed the Cougars three straight goals take a 4-1 lead midway through the third. Keith Chase’s Mustangs never stopped believing and reeled off five goals for a thrilling comeback victory. Sedlacek was a beast on the back end, scoring four goals, including the equalizer and winner. The winner came after a splendid feed from the shifty Joe Eggert, who first eluded a Cougar checker with a shoulder drop and then sent a saucer pass into the slot for Sedlacek to rip home.

Wilde was again strong in net while Logan Higgs recovers from injury. Josh Bridge and Colton Schaper-Cotter added a physical presence up front and Drayden Dougan kept the Cougars at bay and added a couple of his patented checks for good measure.
Vees brush off Renegades 4-3 The Bantam Tier 1 Sun Valley Source for Sports Renegades fell 4-3 to the Penticton Vees in their home opener Sunday at Civic Arena. Vernon began with an aggressive forecheck and quick foot speed, but failed to connect until the second period when Jagger Williamson scored on a beauty pass from Gage Kopp. Not long after, Donte Nowell, from Michael LeNoury, clicked on the powerplay. The Vees netted two quick goals to finish out the second period, but Vernon answered back 11 seconds into the third when Matt Kowalski buried one short side. After that, the Renegades found themselves in penalty trouble, spending six of the last seven minutes in the box. Penticton capitalized by scoring both the tying goal and the winner, with 30 seconds left. Kopp put in a solid performance on the blueline, breaking up several two-on-ones and assisting on two goals, while Kaden Black won face-offs and foot races all afternoon. Josh Evans took the loss as Vernon was outshot 32-26. The Renegades, who are coached by Jim Armstrong, are in Richmond this weekend for the 10th Annual Seafair Tournament.

Smoke Eaters extinguish Vernon Viper attack Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Vipers went to the Kootenays looking for a repeat of last week’s demolition of the Trail Smoke Eaters. What they encountered Saturday night at Cominco Arena was a first-star performance by Smokie netminder Lyndon Stanwood, who recorded 33 saves for his first-ever B.C. Hockey League shutout and a 3-0 win. “He was good, but we made him look pretty good. We weren’t crashing the net hard enough,” said Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson, who is hoping the Vipers can learn from their early-season adversity. “We’re a young hockey team that’s trying to find its way here. Having a little funk early
in the season isn’t necessarily bad for us.” Vernon’s character will certainly be tested Friday night when they visit the defending RBC Cup champion Penticton Vees at South Okanagan Events Centre. Fred Harbinson’s crew is once again tops in the BCHL at 7-1. Saturday night, the West Kelowna Warriors (3-2-0-1) visit Wesbild Centre. Vernon is fifth in the Interior at 2-3-0-2, one point behind Rylan Ferster’s Warriors. Williamson gave rookie keeper Joe Young his second start in Trail, and the upstart Smokies (4-5) got to him on the first shot of
the game, with Luke Sandler converting at 1:41 in front of 1,100 fans. “The first shot of the game, you feel bad for him because it was a D-zone breakdown that led to the goal,” said Williamson. Trail’s other two snipes both came on the man advantage, and Young (22 saves) couldn’t be faulted for either. “The first goal we let him (Scott Davidson) walk in almost like a breakaway and (Brent Baltus) banged in a rebound on the second one,” said Williamson. Special teams and discipline issues continue to haunt Vernon – Trail went 2-for-8
on the powerplay to Vernon’s 0-for-5. Viper captain Brett Corkey, not renowned for fighting, instigated a scrap with Trail’s Garrett McMullen after he boarded his defensive partner Marc Hetnik in the second period. Williamson had no issue with Corkey standing up for a teammate, but was less thrilled when Pearce Eviston earned a two-and-10 for a blow to the head later in the frame. Jedd Soleway was tossed for checking from behind midway through the third. “Things weren’t going our way and we got a little bit frustrated,” said Williamson. “The game is called a certain way and you’ve got to live within the rules.”
Knights battle to complete three-game road sweep Morning Star Staff
It’s surprising the North Okanagan Knights didn’t get stopped for fireworks at the border because they certainly let off a few Saturday night at Eagles Ice-A-Rena in Spokane. The Knights and Braves kept the timekeepers busy with a five-fight night, complete with a line brawl and a combined 41 powerplays, as North Okanagan earned a 7-5 win. Suspended head coach Kris Mallette watched from the stands Sunday as the Knights made it a 3-0 road swing by pummelling the host Grand Forks Border Bruins 6-1 in a matinee. They are second in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League at 5-1-0-1. “Obviously we’ll take three wins any day,” said Mallette, who earned a two-game suspension, one for each fight over the three per game allowed by the league. He will also miss Friday night’s tilt against the Revelstoke Grizzlies (4-2-0-1) at Nor-Val Sports Centre, but will return Saturday when they
host the Penticton Lakers (2-4). North Okanagan raced out to a 5-0 lead over the 3-4 Braves on goals by second star Morgan Johnston (2), Mat Lambert, Matty Saharchuk and Brett Hawrys. Spokane responded with a powerplay goal from Sean Collins in the second period. And then the shenanigans started, jumpstarted by a preliminary bout between the Knights’ Owen Barker and Braves’ Brycen Fisher, right off the first draw of the final period. Less than a minute later, Josh Klein earned a boarding major for a hard hit on the Spokane player, which sparked the brawl. The Knights spent the majority of the third period shorthanded and Spokane rallied on a hat trick by Alex Marmon (first star), all on the man advantage, and a single by Austin Gabriel. The Knights’ Harlan Orr (shorthanded) and Tanner Burns, with the insurance marker, completed the scoring. Backup keeper Zack Dueck recorded 34 saves for the win,
and third star Knights’ defenceman Mac Ferner recorded two assists to go with along a solid scrap with Coleman MacDonald early in period two. By comparison, Sunday’s tilt with Grand Forks was more like Sunday tea, as the teams combined for just eight penalty minutes. The Knights peppered Bruins’ netminder Robert Dunsmuir with 18 shots in the first period, but only converted in the final minute on a goal by Saharchuk. Nathan Browne and Barker extended the lead to 3-0 after two periods before Connor Goss answered for Grand Forks (1-7) early in the third. Lambert, followed by a pair from Burns, completed the offence. ICE CHIPS: Orr, a Vernon native who is third in KIJHL scoring with 4-7-11 in five games, has been called up by the BCHL Salmon Arm SilverBacks for their three-game road swing on Vancouver Island...Burns, also of Vernon, is seventh with 5-4-9 in seven games.

Sports Vernon roasts Raiders
United vs IGA for title Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Magnums closed their first month of regularseason play with a 38-0 win over the visiting Richmond Raiders in Midget minor football play Sunday afternoon at Grahame Park. Vernon QB Kyle Richardson and running back Colton Klein treated the large crowd to a great rushing display, combining for more than 300 yards. Guard Tanner Bishop led the blocking on a solid offensive line, recording five pancake blocks to earn him Carlâ€™s Jr. game MVP. On defence, coaches Ryan Bridge and Dan Vassberg called a smart game, highlighted by sacks from Mike Ochoa, Jordan Johnson and Jon Roy. Travis Winship, Lucas Hofer, Mykenzee Ramunno, Justin Vicklund and Adam Woods also had solid defensive efforts. The return of Vernon kicker Clark Richardson had Richmond starting sequences from inside their own 10-yard line for the majority of the game. â€œDespite some key player injuries, we finally came together and played our style of football,â€? said head coach Bill Tarr, whose Magnums visit White Rock this Sunday. In Bantam play, the Vernon Wolverines stuffed the Langley Bears 26-12 Sunday at Grahame Park. Vernon started slow, putting up two singles

Sova ran the whole field for a touchdown on this play. on missed field goals. Davron Polok was an offensive standout, scoring two touchdowns, and Brandon Isaac rounded out the scoring in the third quarter on a 20-yard pass from game MVP Levi Nicholas. Trey Isaac converted on all three scores and added a 30-yard field goal. The Wolverines visit Abbotsford Saturday. The Vernon Marauders bounced the visiting Kamloops Broncos 56-0 in Junior Bantam action. Connor Manahan opened the scoring on Vernonâ€™s first possession with an 18-yard carry. Morgan Nichols had the second TD on a 45-yard burst, behind the solid blocking of Tommy Bettcher and Clayton Hamming. QB Keegan Vicklund dished a screen pass to slot Zack Rogers late in the first quarter for the third score. Tyler Sova scored early in the second quarter with a 100-yard ramble down the sideline, and the Maraudersâ€™ fifth TD in
the half was an 18-yard punt return from linebacker Sebastian Sanchez, who recorded eight tackles and seven converts. Nichols and Sova added TDs in the second half. The Vernon Yellow Jackets went to 6-0 with a 39-0 Pee Wee victory over the visiting Kamloops Wildcats. After a scoreless first quarter, Zack Smith barged in from five yards to open the scoring. Liam Glennon added the convert to make it 8-0. On the Jacketsâ€™ next possession, Kaden Daughty took a reverse 15 yards to the end zone. The offence exploded late in the half, with Riley Macgillivray scoring on a 10-yard run and Bryce Tkachuk taking a swing pass from QB Ethan Anderson 55 yards to paydirt. Glennon kicked both converts for a 31-0 halftime lead. â€œOur defence kept us in the game early when the offence wasnâ€™t clicking,â€? said head coach Bryan Cragg. â€œOnce again, we held
our opponent scoreless. Isaiah Ondrik (four tackles) and Thomas Satterthwaite (four tackles) had great games.â€? Tkachuk, who ended with 112 yards, six tackles and game MVP, took a swing pass from Smith 47 yards to the end zone to keep Vernon rolling in the third quarter. In Atom action, the Vernon Blue Bombers iced the Kamloops Broncos 26-6. Bomber QB Ethan Mitchell passed for 120 yards and two touchdowns, with one rushing score and one interception. Kolby Thorpe (70 yards) and Mekhi Mitchell (50 yards) had TD receptions, while Jayden Wied added a two-point conversion. Defensively, William Satterthwaite had a huge game with four tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery return for a touchdown. Colin Chartlon, Jared Cooper, Ethan Cornies, and Gunnar Nyberg all had strong defensive games. Thorpe and Ethan Mitchell also recovered fumbles.
MacDonald praises Cotter precision Continued from A28 Earlier Monday, Cotter grounded Pete Fenson of Seattle 6-2, while King edged Geall 5-4. MacDonald, who played third for 2009-10 Vernon cashspiel champion Kevin Koe, was throwing last rocks for King after he called the shots in the Edmonton Saville Shootout two weeks ago. MacDonald was in awe of Cotter. â€œYou canâ€™t fart against thunder and Jimmy was unbelievable today,â€? said MacDonald. â€œI donâ€™t know how many doubles he made, probably in 14 shots, I bet he made eight or nine doubles (best was for a single in seven). He was too good. All the credit to him and his team. They were awesome today.â€?
Asked who plays where at the next cashspiel, MacDonald deadpanned: â€œWeâ€™ll rock, paper, scissors for it.â€? Sawatsky, a Vernon product working and living in Kelowna, said they used the extra games to find their way as a new unit. â€œJimmy is dialed right in right now. He was making everything out there look real easy. That shot there in seven was just amazing. With that kind of weight, to make that sort of precision roll. It was a pretty good game. Blake made some pistols out there too. We just tried to let Jimmy do his thing and try not to screw him up.â€? Cotter competes in the Westcoast Curling Classic in New Westminster this weekend.
the second half, a 30-yard screamer for Dante Zanatta at 60 minutes deflated the Camels. Super-sub Steve Heiss entered the game at 70 minutes and converted two chances. His first came on a nicely squared ball by Tony Gonzales, allowing him to shoot top corner past the helpless Dutcher. Heissâ€™s second was a simple six-yard tap-in after a Jimmy Kruiper run. IGAâ€™s Donny Brown stood out as the Man of the Match with an incredible workhorse display in the centre midfield. Steve Nader played a solid game in net for IGA. In Summerland, Lake Country received a yellow card in the first half but the referee wrote down the wrong number of the offender. Mike Ley, who scored once, got a yellow in the second half, and the ref gave him a red card for a second yellow. â€œBut it was not Mike that got the yellow in the first half so we got a red card when we should not have,â€? said Lake Country veteran Greg Kilmartin. Steve Cox also scored for the Lakers, while Zeke Peschada connected on a free kick around the Lake Country wall for the prettiest Penticton goal. Other United scorers were not reported.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -You’re asking for all kinds of trouble if you deliberately play up to someone in order to make another person whom you don’t like jealous. Don’t play games. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Only if you are tenacious and consistent will success be within your reach. However, the odds are against you if you try to gamble your way to greener pastures. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Friends and associates aren’t likely to have any respect for your ideas or opinions if they sense that you have little regard for theirs. Be sure to keep an open mind and avoid premature judgment.
Involvements with substitutes aren’t likely to work out too well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Once you successfully have achieved something, let it go and move on to something new. If you keep trying to improve it, you could unravel your own accomplishment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your keen imagination can be a very big plus, provided you remain positive and channel it constructively. Once you start to think negatively, it will be a different story. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Avoid any speculative involvements, especially those that require you have to dip into your savings in order to participate. Chances are what starts out wrong will end up wrong. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This might not be one of your better days for decisionmaking, but what could make it even worse is that the persons to whom you go for counsel could be even more inept than you.
WANT THE NEWS NOW?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t allow anybody who’s notorious for being unable to manage his or her resources to handle your own. This error in judgment could turn out to be very expensive. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Things you envision can be brought into being, if you work at it. However, this does not mean you could succeed teaming up with another. Go it alone. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You won’t mind going out of your way to assist a friend. However, it will really irk you if the recipient has a total lack of acknowledgement and appreciation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If your old standbys aren’t available to do something fun with you, it might be best to go it alone.

Bridge by Phillip Alder THE TEMPTATION IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST Tom Wilson, an actor who died in 1965, said, “About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you’re ﬁghting temptation.” There are a lot of things in life that we ﬁnd nearimpossible to resist, even though we feel in our bones that in the long run we would be better off avoiding them. Some bridge bids and plays fall into that category. One is in today’s deal. South is in four spades. After West leads the heart jack, what should be the outcome? When South rebid two spades, he guaranteed at least a six-card suit. With only ﬁve spades, he would have shown another suit, rebid in no-trump, or raised
clubs. East wins the ﬁrst trick with his king, cashes the ace, and continues with another heart. What should South do? What was the opening lead? Given that South has the 10, it must have been high from a doubleton. Since West is itching to overruff, South trumps with his spade 10. What does West do? In the real world, West will greedily overruff with his jack, giving in to the temptation of winning a trick. Then, though, South wins West’s shift in his hand and runs the spade queen (unless West covers with his king, of course). The spade ﬁnesse works, declarer plays another spade, and claims when both opponents follow
suit. Now go back to trick three. West must discard, resisting the temptation to overruff. He is guaranteed to get two trump tricks. Try it and see. Do not overruff with an honor that will win a trick later, unless you have something vital to do.

Terence Edward Fergus It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Terence “Terry” Edward Fergus on September, 26, 2012 in Vernon, BC at 47 years of age. Terry was born on July 13, 1965 in Newcastle-under-Lyme, England, the third child of four siblings. Terry is survived by his two children Madison and Kassandra; his parents Mary and Terry of Enderby; his siblings Gail Weldon of Vernon, John of Kelowna, and David of Enderby; his special friend Clauddette Jackson, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Terry lived his early years in Surrey and Enderby. He graduated high school from A. L. Fortune Secondary, Enderby, BC. After graduation Terry worked in the oil patch, then he was a ﬂoor mechanic and building maintenance supervisor, working throughout BC and AB. Terry’s greatest joy was being with his children and spending time ﬂy ﬁshing in the great outdoors. Those who knew him, knew him as a man of few words, until he started talking about his children or ﬁshing. Terry battled with addiction and family problems. Although he was estranged from his children in recent years, it is without question that he is watching over his parents, siblings, and most of all his daughters. His chest is puffed out and his smile is from ear to ear as he stands guard over his loved ones. Private family service was held. Cremation. Interment at Cliffside Cemetery, Enderby, BC. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca. Arrangements entrusted to ALTERNATIVES FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES® Armstrong 250-546-7237 & Vernon 250-558-0866

My furnace is close to 20 years old now. For planning purposes how much more life should I expect out of it, and what should I look for in a new one?
Life expectancy for furnaces really depends on how well it has been maintained. Like all mechanical equipment, furnaces require routine maintenance and the ﬁlter should be changed frequently to optimize air-ﬂow through the system. A well maintained system will last 20+ years with very few repairs. However, even if your system has been well maintained and is operating ﬁne, modern furnaces are so efﬁcient now, that it may be worth upgrading your furnace if it’s older than 15 years. Gas furnaces today boast efﬁciencies as high as 98%. That means for every $1 spent on natural gas, only 2 cents worth is being wasted. Some older furnaces are wasting as much as 40 cents for every dollar spent on gas. Also, if you are thinking about upgrading your furnace, often people fail to ask about the electrical efﬁciency. Some furnaces today consume as little as 75 watts during operation, while older furnaces can be in the 200-300 watt range. Considering that your furnace does double duty by operating during the cooling season as well, the hours of electrical operation can really add up over the course of a year. So make sure to ask your heating contractor about electrical efﬁciency!
My kids are back in school and are already coming home with congestion and coughs. What can I do to keep them healthy?
The transition back to school can be exciting and stressful. In addition to the close proximity of so many children there is an adjustment getting back into sleep routines and regular eating habits. Sleep: Get your kids back into a regular sleep routine so they can get the rest they need and recover from the new busier schedule. Reduce stress: Discuss any worry or anxiety they may be feeling about new classes, teachers and friends. Cortisol (a stress hormone) reduces our immune response and interferes with healing. Hand washing: Make sure they are washing their hands before they eat at school and when they get home from school. This will help minimize their exposure. Vitamin C: This vitamin stimulates the immune system and enhances antibody response. Dosage is based on age and bowel tolerance. Vitamin D: This vitamin boosts the immune system and has been shown to reduce severity of infections when taken on a regular basis. Homeopathic Immune Booster: This natural ﬂu shot (given as drops under the tongue in children) will support their body’s natural immune response to all viruses and reduce severity of the ﬂu.

Contrary to what many people believe, codependency does not only refer to dependent relationships that involve substance abuse. It is a set of maladaptive, compulsive behaviours that family members learn while growing up in families where there is a lot of stress and emotional pain. Basically, codependent adults were once children who had an adult to worry about. As adults, codependents usually have little contact with their inner world, how they feel, and unconsciously try to control inner feelings by controlling people, things, or events on the outside. They may suffer from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and often have difficulty in their relationships. Some characteristics of codpendency include: • Minimize, alter, or deny feelings • Feel overly responsible for others • Difficulty with setting boundaries, and saying “no” • Unable to ask others to meet their needs or wants • Feelings of being “different” • Masters of denial Recovery means changing the focus from outward to inward, from exterior to interior and rediscovering the voice and the feelings inside. I’d like to offer hope, support, education, individual and group counselling to others who are struggling. I welcome your call for consultation and appointment.

Are there new marketing techniques?
Marketing is an ever evolving industry and there are always new methods and opportunities arising. One of the latest marketing tools we’ve been using is an Active QR Code. Now QR Codes themselves have been around for a while (they are the square barcodes that look like the one at the bottom of this column). Original QR codes usually only go to one place (like a website link or a phone number). The difference with Active QR Codes is that when scanned, they link you to a live mobile website that you can change at any time. Not only do Active QR Codes provide the opportunity to have timely information, it is also set up to include a variety of contact mediums (website, email, phone number, address, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, etc). You can even include digital coupons for promotions you are running. For our clients it has been a successful, engaging tool that bridges print and online media.

How can I tell the difference from one company to the next as far a quality goes?
Unfortunately you cannot test drive a kitchen or try it on and walk around prior to purchasing so ﬁnding the difference in quality to the ﬁrst time inexperienced buyer is not that easy and it does takes a keen eye to note the differences. First thing I would suggest is to knock on the back centre of the cabinet to determine if it is a solid 5/8 back or just the ﬂimsy 1/8 hardboard. This is key to cabinet construction, strength and trueness to remaining square. Make sure the interior is good quality 5/8 melamine and not white vinyl typical to the low end knock down cabinets. Finished side panels and moldings should be same ﬁnish as the doors and not melamine or vinyl wrapped. Door and drawer hardware should be of European origin and not off shore knock offs. Last but not least take a door and angle it towards a bright light to see the quality of the ﬁnish. There should be no traces of dust, contaminants or imperfections in the ﬁnish whatsoever. There are many more items to test quality that space here unfortunately does not allow for.

My parents are older and they are getting more fragile. Would strength training help them?
What happens when people start aging is that they often develop sarcopenia; in other words, their muscles start to waste away because they’re not being used often enough. Research shows that even people in their 70s and older hugely beneﬁt from strength training. Hiring a Personal Trainer to teach your parents how to work out and gently increase resistance as their muscles develop will ensure that they affectively and safely learn new skills. One of my clients, in her 70s, was astounded by how much she felt better after even a few sessions. She proudly states that she’s now “hooked.” And because her posture has improved so dramatically, she feels years younger! How great is that!

What is the difference between memory foam and gel beds?
Shopping for a mattress can be a very overwhelming process as there are so many brands and types of mattresses. The newest innovation to hit the market in mattresses is gel. Gel works like memory foam as it conforms and adapts to your body but it does not give off heat. Gel is more buoyant and allows more give when you are tossing and turning in your sleep. At City Furniture, we have gel beds, memory foam beds and Tempurpedic beds on display, so make sure to stop by and see our bedding gallery at the new and exciting City Furniture!
