Flames force out residents JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Residents of a Mission Hill apartment building forced out of their home for Thanksgiving are still waiting to get back into their homes. A fire broke out at the Royal Apartments in the 3400 block of 21st Avenue Monday at approximately 4 a.m. “I was up, watching TV at the time,” said James Brindley, who lives in one of the approximately 17 units and returned Tuesday to check on his cats who have been in hiding from all the commotion. “I looked out the kitchen window and saw the fire truck and smoke.” The fire started in a storage area in a crawlspace, but was quickly contained by firefighters. The units were not damaged by fire but Brindley says the smell of smoke is still evident throughout the building. “It’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be,” he said of the fire damage, as some neighbours reported seeing huge flames. Vernon deputy fire chief Lawrie Skolrood adds: “It was fairly minor relative to what it could have been.” Approximately seven tenants of the building are being housed by Emergency Social Services while the owner works with a restoration company and insurance investigators to

A cause of the fire may never be known as fire investigators could not pinpoint a source in a pile of charred items pulled from the storage area. Monday’s apartment fire was followed by another fire later in the evening.

A small blaze was started from a clothes dryer in a home in the 4300 block of 20th Street Monday at approximately 11:30 p.m. “It was a small fire but there was extensive smoke damage to the living area,” said deputy fire chief Jack Blair. A fire was also sparked from a fireplace in

a condo Friday morning in the 4000 block of 24th Avenue. “A box that had been left in front of the gas fireplace had caught on fire,” said Blair. “Fortunately the smoke alarm alerted everybody and the owner was able to douse it with some water.”

Bicycles stolen, then used in other crimes Some Vernon criminals are going green. Vernon RCMP are investigating an unusual rash of bicycle thefts on the weekend, and those responsible are believed to be using the bikes to commit more crime. “Sunday and Monday, police were kept busy responding to several calls

of reported thefts that had occurred overnight,” said Cpl. Gerry Kovacs. “In the majority of cases, these thefts occurred from motor vehicles that had been left unlocked with valuables and money left inside, and it seems their mode of transport favours the bicycle, many of which we believe were stolen. It makes them hard to catch when they’re on bikes.”

Kovacs said a suspect would take a bike, ride it to one part of town, go through some unlocked vehicles and take money or valuables. They would then ditch that bike and take another one, riding to a different part of town and starting the whole process over. “All of the crimes this weekend were crimes of opportunity,” said Kovacs. “The bikes were left unlocked

and they just helped themselves to cars that were left unlocked.” The thefts happened in various parts of the community. Police are again reminding everyone to lock up bikes, keep valuables hidden or at least taken out of vehicles, and make sure vehicles and storage sheds are locked. “You can’t leave anything

in a car,” said Kovacs. “If they see a loonie, they’re going to take it. It’s that simple.” Also causing concern for RCMP is the fact that several high-end, or high-value, bikes were stolen. Kovacs suggests owners of such bikes take extra precaution in securing them. “Make them identifiable for us somehow,” he said. “Record serial numbers or engrave your driver’s licence

number on the front of the bike.” If a bike of any type is stolen, make a report to RCMP by calling 250-545-7171. “If we find it, there’s a chance we can marry up the bike with its owner,” said Kovacs. “We always end up with bikes in our custody because we haven’t found the owners. And, if you’re a victim, let us know.”

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

LISA VANDERVELDE/ MORNING STAR

Trevor Diett spends the afternoon in the sunshine at Polson Park with his son Daxon, two. The weather is expected to stay sunny and mild throughout the week.

Proponents of a drug and alcohol treatment facility admit they could have done more to alleviate public concerns. The John Howard Society told Vernon city council Tuesday that communications could have been better over its plans for a residential property in the 2500 block of 43rd Avenue. “The society recognizes the lack of support in the community is ours to turn around,� said Barb Levesque, executive director. “It’s our obligation to convince them we will be a good neighbour.� There are two buildings on the property and one will include a 10-bed substance abuse facility for men, while

“I find it a reassurance that it will be managed well.� — Cunningham the other will provide rental suites for men who are not addicted. Some nearby residents have stated they were not informed of the facility in an immediate fashion. They have also expressed concerns about safety and property values. Levesque says a neighbourhood council, including nearby residents, has been formed. The main goal of the process will be forming an agreement that commits the neighbours and John Howard Society to

City’s actions won’t prevent bow hunting RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon is taking steps to ban bow hunting, but that won’t necessarily stop the activity. A majority of council approved a draft bylaw that would prohibit the use of bows and arrows. But if a bylaw is finally adopted, it will still be superseded by the provincial right to farm legislation. “There is nothing in this bylaw that will stop people from bow hunting on farm land,� said Coun. Bob Spiers. It was also pointed out that such hunting can also help protect commercial crops and prevent the deer

population from increasing. “Other communities have had to cull deer and this is a way to deal with it,� said Clint Kanester, bylaw enforcement manager. However, Coun. Catherine Lord insists bow hunting is a public safety issue. “I don’t want to see a bunch of cross bows used anywhere in the city,� she said. The draft bylaw also calls for a restriction on irritant gases like bear spray. Residents could only use them in certain areas, such as trails to protect themselves from wildlife. However, Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe is concerned

that a resident outside of the designated areas could be fined if they have bear spray in their purse or in their vehicle. “We’re making criminals out of people. We’re layering a bylaw on to a federal law and that’s not solving the problem,� she said. However, Coun. Juliette Cunningham says bear spray is being included in the bylaw because it can be used for criminal acts. “This gives them another tool,� she said of the RCMP. Council has also approved a bylaw that would restrict the public use of traps.

proper behaviour. Coun. Juliette Cunningham says the concerns of residents could have been more likely if private interests had bought the site and rented units out. “They (John Howard clients) must commit to a certain standard of behaviour,� she said. “I find it a reassurance that it will be managed well.� Renovations are underway and the treatment facility could be ready in six to eight weeks.

Aspenware innovator earns honour RICHARD ROLKE

www.vernonmorningstar.com

Morning Star Staff

A Vernon businessman has been recognized as a Canadian innovator. Terry Bigsby has received a $10,000 Manning Innovation Award for developing Aspenware compostable utensils made from wood veneers. “It’s a pretty big honour,” said Bigsby. “It tells people we’re on the map and we have something of value. We’re a step above everyone else in the industry.” Aspenware began in 1997 in Lumby and Bigsby developed the patented commercial process and equipment to produce 35,000 units per hour. “It makes people realize the importance of value-added wood products. We make 50,000 products out of one cubic metre of veneer,” he said. Bigsby also points out that innovation on a national scale can occur outside of major cities. “This award shows you don’t have to have millions and millions of dollars or a big university backing you. You just need to keep going,” he said. “It’s recognition of all of the years of hard work.” The company, which has 20 full-time employees, sells utensils across Canada. Bigsby and the other 2012 Manning Innovation Award winner are featured in this week’s Maclean’s magazine. The Manning Innovation Awards are an initiative of the Calgary-based Ernest C. Manning Awards Foundation. Bigsby’s award will be presented at a gala October 17 in Ottawa.

Ancient artifacts uncovered RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A glimpse into the Okanagan’s ancient past has been revealed. Crews on the Highway 97 project between Oyama and Winfield have unearthed thousands of First Nations artifacts, including some that may be 6,000 years old. “There is the perception that history started with the arrival of Father Charles Pandosy and there was nothing before that,” said Byron Louis, chief of the Okanagan Indian Band. “But some of our stories go back to the end of the ice age.” Louis says the discovery will challenge educators and residents to reconsider pre-contact history in the region. “There wasn’t a spot in the Okanagan our people didn’t occupy.” Louis is also intrigued by the discovery of what may have been a fishing net. “That shows innovation,” he said,

“Some of our stories go back to the end of the ice age.” — Byron Louis adding that his ancestors developed techniques as their needs required. Among the other artifacts found are arrowheads, spear points and stones used as hammers. Archeological work along the new highway route above Wood Lake was done by Golder Associates. Cataloguing of the artifacts will soon get underway. The Okanagan Indian Band will ultimately assist in determining where the artifacts will be permanently kept, whether it is at a museum or a university. “We want to make sure they are safely stored and they preserve the more delicate items,” said Louis.

Hootsuite founder keeps eye on big picture KATHY MICHAELS Black Press

Ryan Holmes is arguably the Okanagan’s biggest success story. The founder and CEO of the social media management system HootSuite has raised the profile of Canada’s high tech scene, is able to casually speak about his brainchild’s projected market valuation of $500 million and can boast Sir Richard Branson among his list of friends and acquaintances. The latter, he admits, came dangerously close to making him a “gushing fan boy.” With all that and more to his credit, however, Holmes, 37, seemed more like the Vernon guy who started a paintball company right out

of high school, wearing a calculator watch, a few woven bracelets and slipping in references to the Grateful Dead and Star Wars when he spoke to a crowd laced with family and old high school friends, gathered at Okanagan College. Holmes, who was at the Kelowna campus Friday to discuss his industry and accept the school’s Distinguished Alumni Award explained in his inimitable fashion that while he’s stocked up plenty of life experiences during his meteoric rise, he has his eye on a bigger picture. That vision starts with making HootSuite into an even more stable and powerful entity. He’s publicly said he hopes to see it earn a $1 billion mar-

“San Francisco investors always said, ‘when are you coming to the valley?”’ he said, noting he made the decision to go there when he needs to, while keeping his roots north of the border. Other HootSuite offices have opened across the globe, but Vancouver remained home base. If HootSuite can build as Holmes projects, it could even offer some solutions to the long lamented brain drain.

While Holmes admits the challenge of getting the type of engineers he’s used to working with would stop a company of his size from planting roots in this valley, he’s seen some positive steps forward. “I’ve been meeting with people here today and it looks like exciting times for the Okanagan,” he said, noting everything from Accelerate Okanagan, Club Penguins and things like like Metabridge will help build the industry’s strength.

Enderby shows leadership

E

nderby politicians have proven me wrong. When the Regional District of North Okanagan approached member jurisdictions to fund a grant for the Upper Room Mission, I anticipated the dear John letters would flow. After all, the group is in Vernon and the common theory is the Vernon community should look after its own and not go cap-in-hand to others for help. But those sitting around Enderby council chambers decided to dispel with such parochialism. “We recognize the excellent work the Upper Room Mission does and council felt we should be a partner in helping with the situation,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. URM wants a Richard Rolke $9,200 fee from the regional district waived for a water main upgrade to its facility. If it has to pay the fee, that means fewer dollars exist for meals and programs to residents in need RDNO doesn’t have a functioning grants program so its next step was to ask the six member municipalities and five electoral areas if they would put some money on the table. If all jurisdictions participate, Enderby’s share will be $221. “It’s a small monetary amount,” said Coun. Tundra Baird. “They do a lot of good work. For what they do, it’s worth it.” That aside, some Enderby taxpayers may still be left wondering why they are contributing dollars to a program in Vernon. But Cyr isn’t concerned about a backlash.

“We may have people in Enderby who have been helped by the mission,” he said. Baird points out that Enderby and other small communities struggle to assist residents in certain circumstances. “We don’t have the core social services Vernon has,” she said. While Enderby council was willing to back Upper Room Mission, it didn’t jump through hoops to bring Ironman to Vernon. Council agreed to morally support Vernon’s bid but it wouldn’t consider a financial commitment until it was determined if cycling routes would go to Enderby. “We just didn’t have the appetite to just say, ‘well, we’ll support it and we’ll pay for some of the stuff’ when we don’t know what the heck it is,’” said Cyr. And in this case, that was the correct approach as closing roads and looking after athletes’ needs would have impacted the budget. Of course it’s all a moot point because Vernon’s pursuit of Ironman was unsuccessful. But in terms of the Upper Room Mission, Enderby council has highlighted what’s good about our region. When people are in need, boundaries on a map don’t matter. We are all part of the broader community. Enderby may only be giving $221, but the dollar value is irrelevant. It’s the thought that counts. It will be interesting to see how Armstrong, Spallumcheen, Lumby and the electoral areas, as well as Vernon and Coldstream, handle the URM request. Hopefully they will follow Enderby’s leadership and not stick to their little fiefdoms.

At least one of the election gag laws has been thrown out. The B.C. Court of Appeal has decided that an attempt by the provincial government to control free speech prior to a provincial election isn’t constitutional. This after the government tried several times to restrict how much money third parties can spend in the 60-day window before an election campaign begins. An attempt by Victoria to cut that down to 40 days didn’t work either. Governments and political parties have interfered in the election process far too much. Elections are not the property of politicians — they are the property of citizens. They are the one chance that citizens have to determine who is in power, what policies will be brought in and what changes can be worked towards. Yet at the federal and provincial level, election spending has been restricted for years. Not only are individual candidates restricted in their spending, which does at least level the playing field a bit, but individuals, businesses, unions and interest groups have severe restrictions on how much they can spend to send messages to voters. This is what the province was trying to do in the pre-election period — mainly to cut off messages from anti-government groups. Individuals, organizations and businesses should have every right to spend money before and during campaigns. It’s goo0d that the Court of Appeal has struck down restrictions during the pre-election period. It would be nice if a court would strike down the restrictions which apply during federal and provincial elections as well. The only purpose they serve is to keep the election process dominated by political parties, and to severely restrict the rights of citizens during what should be a free-ranging debate. — Langley Times

Community needs to embrace facility

I

was delighted to read Judy Shirley's letter, a community member, in support of the planned John Howard recovery centre. I am saddened by the NIMBY's who actually bemoan the fact that there are churches, schools, parks, daycares and even liquor stores in the neighbourhood. It sounds perfect for men who are wanting to take some responsibility for their drinking problems. A normal and supportive environment is what all of us need when we slip up and get back on our feet. The sad part is when our sons, brothers, fathers, uncles, and grandfathers move from addiction to recovery and we are not there to welcome them, introduce ourselves and our kids, and talk openly in our schools, daycares and churches about the dangers of addictions and the importance of our love and support to those who are healing. The values of compassion, caring, empathy, and forgiveness seem lost to our concern about the value of our properties. As with those mean corporations that we love to hate, it is all "about the money."

PAST DECISIONS Former mayor Wayne McGrath and others might find it surprising to know that today's council is not to be fettered by a previous council's decision, never mind being bound in any fashion by a politically-motivated letter that was once sent to residents to make the city's impending annexation of their area more palatable. Will the former mayor also stand up for the letter he wrote, at the time of annexation, that stated Okanagan Landing residents would not have to pay to hook up to city sewer and water? I think not. More than 19 years later, we need to get over this Landing hangover, and get on with the business of the city. I fully appreciate the roles that volunteers play in all aspects of our community. I therefore look forward to the city implementing a strategy that includes any and all willing volunteer firefighters working together with their paid counterparts to cre-

It is a well-known belief that a society is only as good as the way it treats its most vulnerable - its children, its seniors, its mentally challenged, its poor and those who are in recovery or healing (from many ailments). What would happen if the whole community showed up individually or in a group to welcome these new vulnerable ones with open hearts? Suddenly, the fear might melt - on both sides - and this community might be

ate a more effective and responsive approach to firefighting and emergencies, for all of Vernon's neighbourhoods. And if that costs a bit more, so be it. I would happily pay more to ensure that our city can deliver the same level of emergency response to all residents of Vernon, not just those in proximity to the main hall.

Untreated family dysfunctions cost a family far more than a property value taking a dip. Property values fall when there is failure, not success. This recovery program will succeed if the local people embrace the values it demonstrates for all of us: that we deserve support, not just from our families and professionals, but from friends in our neighbourhood. Mr. Rogers taught us this well. How can we forget? Our children will be ashamed of us when they grow up and struggle with the many addictions that life offers them, including selfishness. Will we reject them in the same way: close up our churches, lock up the children, and send them away from normalcy, as if they did not deserve the same chances as all people to heal from within a community? The opposite of love is fear. On which side do you stand? Get out from the middle. They do not mix. Dave Bosomworth

was met by two large dogs. One appeared to be a pit bull and the other a Rotti-cross of some sort. At any rate, they started to approach me aggressively. One came around behind me and the other stayed at the front on me. I waved a vehicle down and thank goodness two vehicles stopped. The young woman, a paramedic, let me in and the dogs started coming to the vehicle. The incident was called into the RCMP by the paramedic. Fortunately, no one was hurt. This kind young woman drove me home and I then phoned a number of other residents in our area that walk each morning. This was very unnerving to me and I would ask all dog owners, large or small, please keep your dogs at home where they cannot get away or on leashes if you are with them. Thanks to the kind, young woman for coming to my rescue and thanks to the RCMP for following up. Howard Fisher

Officers investigating illegal moose kill RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Authorities are trying to solve the mys-

tery of a moose that was killed and left to rot. A two-point bull was found five kilometres

up the Deafies Creek forest service road, near Lumby, Oct. 7. It may have been

shot Oct. 4 or 5. “It was shot and left. Nothing was taken,” said Brent Smith, a con-

servation officer. “It’s a legal bull but the season doesn’t open until Oct. 15.”

It’s not known why someone killed the moose and didn’t remove any of the

meat. “They may have thought the season was open. There may have been a mistake in reading the re g u l a t i o n s ,” s a i d Smith. The other Smith possibility is the animal was targeted by illegal hunters and they got scared off before they could take the meat. In the case of an accidental shooting, those involved are asked to report the incident to conservation officers at 1-877-952-7277. “We’re not out to hang anyone,” said Smith of possible fines. “We just want to find out what may have happened.” When moose or other wildlife is found abandoned, conservation officers make sure the meat doesn’t go to waste. “We have given a couple away to the Salvation Army food bank and other organizations,” said Smith. If anyone has information about the moose shooting at Deafies Creek, they are asked to call 1-877-952-7277.

Local offers more food for thought Community asked to serve up a ‘eulogy’ of sorts at Funeral Café in Vernon Art Gallery KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Gabriel Newman has just come out of one of his favourite restaurants, his heart still beating as he tries to sell his latest idea. His pitch: Provide a lunch that you would serve at a funeral reception. Oh, and do it for free. The request may seem a little far-fetched to a business trying to make a living rather than serve up obligatory finger sandwiches, but it’s all part of a social experiment that Newman is offering through the auspices of the Vernon Public Art Gallery. And so far, he has received ––pardon the pun–– a few bites. “My work is hard to pitch. What’s attractive depends on who you are,” deadpans Newman. The free food is part of Newman’s latest project, the Funeral Café, where members of the community will sit down to lunch provided at the art gallery. The catch is whoever attends must share a story they would either tell about a loved one or they would like to be heard about themselves –– at a funeral. Their stories will be recorded for the VPAG installation, which will remain open throughout the day to that spectators can come in, listen to the recorded stories, and in exchange, record their own stories. “It was Thomas King (author of The Truth About Stories) who said ‘The truth about stories is that that’s all we are,’ said Newman on why he has chosen to record people’s “eulogies” and share them with the community. “We give high status to the written word, to filmmakers, but I think the most important stories take place at the performance venue we have in each of our homes, the dinner table. It’s what we do when we get together with family that’s really important... I am just celebrating the skills we already have and that we value. “A lot of us already have an empty relationship with our computers. This way we can have meaningful relationship with people at the café.”

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Gabriel Newman, purveyor of the Social Potluck and Ghost Tours of Vernon, is starting a new social interactive experiment with the Funeral Café, taking place at the Vernon Public Art Gallery. This isn’t the first time Newman has attempted to engage the community in telling its stories. Last year, as part of his thesis for his master’s in fine arts at UBC Okanagan, Newman came up with the Social Potluck, where he

invited people of all social strata to dinner. The fee was that they were asked to share a story –– any story. People spoke on a wide variety of topics, which Newman attempted to unspool for his thesis –– not an easy task, he said.

“The thing about these events is that we are not sure what story they are going to tell. We don’t have any bearings and there is no wrong story or gesture. The deal is to just deliver a story,” said Newman. “We got a mixture -- a lot of neat experiences and it attracted interesting people. “It’s why I don’t like to charge anything for people to participate, so I can open the door to everyone. It’s why I want to make it a community project.” Although he has narrowed the topic slightly for the Funeral Café, the whole idea is for people to still gather around a table and communicate their deepest desires and thoughts, and become part of an aural historical record of what it means to be community. “In a weird way I’ve cheated.. I wanted to do the Social Potluck, but with a topic,” said Newman. “I picked a topic that is broad, but one that you can run with. I’ve left the funeral aspect wide open. It’s a topic; a place to start.” And as he is also the host of the highly successful Ghost Tours of Vernon, Newman has an admitted fascination with death. “In North America we are standoffish about death and some may be nervous to tell stories with that topic in mind. (However,) I think it’s when our lives are derailed that we feel truly alive. And nothing derails our lives more than death.” Besides a place to nosh and share a story, the Funeral Café will remain open during its installation at the VPAG from Oct. 18 to Dec. 21. All of the gathered recordings and transcriptions from the participants will be in turn incorporated in the narratives about funerals and performed by Newman in successive performances at the gallery. Newman adds he is grateful to the VPAG, and specifically to curator Lubos Culen, as well as to local restaurants Crush Bistro and Bamboo Beach Grill (a third restaurant is TBA, while Newman plans to prepare a meal himself) for allowing him to share his experiment with the public. “Hats off to them... It is sort of a crazy idea,” he laughed. The first Funeral Café takes place Oct. 15, and will run thereafter on Oct. 31, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1. There is only room for six people at each luncheon. Those interested in participating can contact Newman by e-mail at socialpotluck@ gmail.com or call 250-260-8757.

VPAG opens exhibitions by Sookinchoot, Bulgarian printmakers Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Public Art Gallery continues to offer exhibitions in a variety of media, from artists locally and internationally, all while providing information and education about contemporary visual arts. The upcoming exhibitions opening on Oct. 18 fill this criteria. Besides Gabriel Newman’s interactive installation, the Funeral Café, the gallery is presenting the third annual exhibition by the Sookinchoot Youth Centre as well an international printmaking exhibition featuring the work of Bulgarian artists. Located in Vernon’s Friendship Centre, Sookinchoot Aboriginal youth are once again showing their diverse work in the Tribes of Dawn.

Under the guidance of First Nations mentor Wayne LaRiviere, the exhibition brings together traditional and contemporary works of art that contribute to the understanding of cultural values and history of the Okanagan First Nations. The exhibition will include two and three-dimensional artwork, photography, video works, and a contemporary interpretation of traditional crafts. Artists include Harley Knife, Pierre Richard, Clara Hovan, Mary-Rose Cohen, Patrick Dobslaff, Emma Cohen, Jolene Denham, and Seth Tonasket. The VPAG is also opening the Contemporary Bulgarian Printmakers exhibition, which showcases 63 prints produced by 33 Bulgarian artists. Organized by Georgi Kolev, a founder and director of

Lessedra Gallery and Contemporary Art Projects based in Sofia, Bulgaria, the exhibition has toured internationally to the Netherlands, Italy, Japan and the U.S. since 2007. “I am pleased to have once again worked with associate professor Briar Craig (faculty member of UBC Okanagan’s critical and creative studies department) to bring the Bulgarian printmaking exhibition to the Okanagan,” said VPAG curator Lubos Culen. “As an advocate and educator of printmaking, Briar has helped in the selection of many outstanding works that provide a strong representation of art produced by Bulgarian printmakers over the last decade. We are fortunate to offer an exhibition of this calibre to the citizens of Vernon.”

Film shows resilience is not futile Vernon Film Society

Winner of the Grand Jury prize and Best Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild is the stunning debut of first-time film maker Benh Zeitlin. Adapted and written by playwright Lucy Alibar, the film alludes to a number of artistic masterpieces, paying homage to great works of literature, painting, and cinema. At home in the “bathtub,” a marshland cut off from the coast of Southern Louisiana, an unapologetically uncivilized band of humans lives alongside the animals that sustain them, blissfully disconnected to their resource-burning neighbours to the north. Among them, six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) already fends well for herself, sharing a trailer with her father, Wink (Dwight Henry), who hasn’t been the same since Hushpuppy’s mother left them years earlier. Wink can be cruel at times, although his tough love is intended to prepare Hushpuppy for when he’s no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack – temperatures rise and water levels surge, creating an ominous and terrifying climate. Arguably the soul of the film, newcomer Wallis delivers a passionate and intense performance as the defiant and imaginative young heroine. Existing entirely in its own uni-

Quvenzhané Wallis stars as Hushpuppy in Beasts of the Southern Wild. verse, Beasts of the Southern Wild is equal parts mythological, anthropological, folkloric, and apocalyptic. An emotionally wrenching and heartfelt portrayal between a father and his daughter, it is not to be missed. “This film is a remarkable creation, imagining a self-reliant community without the safety nets of the industrialized world,” wrote film critic Roger Ebert, with the Chicago Sun-Times. Beasts of the Southern Wild will be shown at the Vernon Towne Cinema Monday, Oct. 15 at 5:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and one week ahead at the theatre and the Bean Scene for $7.

Smiles on the dance floor YVONNE LEDUC

Special to The Morning Star

Laughter and high spirits were in evidence at the Halina Centre Sept. 27 for the first of three open houses hosted by the Star Country Squares Square Dance Club in Vernon, as a way of promoting modern square dancing and attracting new members to the club. Caller Alan Peterson of Salmon Arm put the dancers through their paces to lively music and with great humour. Second-year dancer Mary Vankka said square dancing is the nicest way to meet new people especially when you are new to the area. “Square dancers are the happiest people I’ve ever met,” said Vankka, who moved to Coldstream last year. “They are so friendly and are really a great group of people, and I love the music.” Annette Perreault and Shelagh Conroy were among the first-time new dancers as were Marilyn and Carl Schoenberger. Perreault said she always wanted to learn to square dance. “I really enjoyed the evening and I’ll be back next week for sure,” she said, to her dance partner, Len Leduc. New dancers meet at the Halina Centre at 7 p.m. on Thursdays. There will be one more open house this Thursday. Come out and join in the fun! For those who already know how to square dance, Star Country Squares meet at the Knox Presbyterian Church on Wednesdays beginning with Plus at 7 p.m., Mainstream at 7:30 p.m., with round dancing between squares. Round dancing is choreographed

Day is a celebration of diversity Morning Star Staff

Celebrating diversity and sharing stories is the focus of this year’s National Coming Out Day (NCOD), and all are welcome to come and celebrate Thursday at the People Place in Vernon. The Okanagan is home to more than 40,000 members of the lesbian/gay community, including trans-gendered and bisexual individuals, and NCOD is organized as an opportunity for everyone to meet together as a means of celebrating who they are. NCOD was founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from New Mexico, and Jean O’Leary, an openly-gay political leader from Los Angeles who

was then head of the National Gay Rights Advocates. Oct. 11 was chosen because it was the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The first headquarters was in the West Hollywood, Calif. offices of the National Gay Rights Advocates. Eighteen states participated in the first NCOD. In its second year, headquarters moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico and participation grew to 21 states. After a media push in 1990, NCOD was observed in all 50 states and is now observed around the world, including in Canada, Australia, Croatia, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The day is observed every year to celebrate coming out and to raise awareness of the LGBT community and civil rights movement. In Vernon, the day will be celebrated Thursday at the People Place, 3402-27th Ave., beginning at 6:30 p.m. This is a safe meeting for the LGBT community and straight friends and relatives to promote awareness of LGBT families living their lives. There will be refreshments, snacks, music and fellowship. The public is invited to learn more about the LGBT community in the Okanagan and to show their support for diversity in Vernon. For more information, please call 250938-4354 or 250-306-9747.

It’s all about animals for The Pet Book Lady Morning Star Staff

Lisa Taron (aka The Pet Book Lady) is a local pet blogger who is making a living by her craft. She’ll soon be heading to Barkworld Expo, the large national social media conference focusing on the pet industry, Oct. 25 to 27 in Atlanta, Ga., one of only two Canadian pet bloggers in attendance. Blogging since 2007, Taron’s blog focuses on two of her passions: the incredible bond that people have with their pets and animals in general. Stories and features that celebrate this bond is one part of her blog. “My other passion is to recognize and

support enthusiastic pet-loving entrepreneurs who have pet products and services that I believe in,” said Taron. “I love to see people succeed and helping them to reach other pet-lovers through my blog makes me happy.” Recently she was hired to do a blog post for Rachael Ray’s new dog food launch, Nutrish. She was also contacted by Reader’s Digest to have a link in a blog post to their Pet Lovers page on the RD website. She is being sponsored by several companies to attend Barkworld and has several blogging contracts booked for the

year ahead, including one from a pet food company in the U.K. When not blogging, Taron runs an online printing and digital scrapbooking business, MakeBooksOnline.com. In addition she recently signed up as a rep for Steeped Tea, the company featured on The Dragon’s Den in their season opener. As a way to give back to the pet community, she is donating 15 per cent of her commission from her Steeped Tea sales to Road Home Rescue, a local non-profit society that helps place pets in foster homes for those facing health or housing crises.

Thanksgiving meal is a labour of love

T

he Thanksgiving feast is over, and I wonder how many non-cookers out there even have a clue how much time goes into making this fabulous meal? Just so you’ll have an idea and a better appreciation, I timed my own efforts. From the planning, shopping, making my cherry and pumpkin pies, cabbage rolls, making stuffing for the turkey, stuffing it, tying it, and getting it into its greased paper bag, the preparation of the vegetables, (Brussels sprouts, turnip, peas and carrots, sweet potato, and mashed potatoes), without counting the cooking times or the mashing, plating times, it still took me more than seven hours to do this! Now add on preparing the table with all its odds and sods, and getting this meal served, we see it’s a major effort. Of course, one can buy almost everything already prepared (yuck) or eat out, which just isn’t the same somehow. And that is why I love any turkey dinner even more when/if I’m not the one preparing the whole thing. Having said that, the one thing I really miss if I don’t prepare the meal, is the leftovers. There’s nothing like that thick turkey sandwich and at least one meal with no effort. After that, though, most of us would like a

Raising awareness Morning Star Staff

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Curves is working to raise awareness in women about the life-saving importance of early detection. Throughout the month, Curves of Vernon is waiving the joining fee for new members who show proof of a mammogram within the past year or make a $25 donation to breast cancer research. Last year, 150 Curves Clubs raised $169,395 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

new idea for getting rid of the rest of the leftovers. Today I offer two good recipes for just that. The first is a tasty pot pie and the second recipe is a casserole that uses up turkey and mashed potatoes. Sam’s Leftover Turkey Pot Pie 2 cups frozen peas and carrots (or leftovers) 2 cups frozen green beans or leftovers if you have some 1 cup sliced celery 2/3 cup butter 2/3 cup chopped onion 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon celery seed 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1-3/4 cups chicken broth 1-1/3 cups milk 4 cups cubed cooked turkey meat, light and dark meat mixed 4 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

Place the raw peas and carrots, green beans and celery into a saucepan; cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer over medium-low heat until the celery is tender, about 8 minutes. Drain the vegetables in a colander set in the sink, and set aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in 2/3 cup of flour, salt, black pepper, celery seed, onion powder and Italian seasoning; slowly whisk in the chicken broth and milk until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens. Remove from heat; stir the cooked vegetables and turkey meat into the filling until well-combined. Fit 2 pie crusts into the bottom of two 9-inch pie dishes. Spoon half the filling into each pie crust, then top each pie with another crust. Pinch and roll the top and bottom crusts together at the edge of each pie to seal, and cut several small slits into the top of the pies with a sharp knife to release steam. Bake in the preheated oven until the crusts are golden brown and the filling is bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. If the crusts are browning too quickly, cover the pies with aluminum foil after about 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes

before serving. Note: You may replace some of the chicken broth with leftover gravy, and leftover stuffing can line the bottom of the pastry if desired.

After forming a large group in Kelowna, Spinal Cord Injury B.C. has created a peer group in Vernon. “We’ve had a really strong group in Kelowna that we’ve had for a very long time so we’re just trying to expand that into Vernon and start a group here,” said Sonja Gaudet, a Vernon resident. The group started about two months ago and has already tried adaptive rowing on Swan Lake with Go Row and Paddle. It was the first meeting for the Vernon group but they are already looking forward to a number of other opportunities in the near future including parasailing, wine tours and visiting the speedway to watch a paraplegic driver in action. The group definitely benefits from going out and doing these activities and trying new things,

but that’s not the main purpose of the group. “The concept that SCI-BC wants to see is that we have a weekly group, a weekly meeting where we’re really just hanging out and sharing ideas and supporting,” said Gaudet. And that support is certainly felt, especially among the members who are already meeting. “It offers mentoring, the exchanging of experiences and knowledge with others, particularly new folks who’ve recently had injuries with spinal cord,” said Mike Foote, one of the group members. For some people, especially those who are new to spinal injuries, it can be difficult speaking to someone who doesn’t understand the situation. Having a group like this gives those people someone to talk to, someone who has been through something similar.

Rob Roseberry works on his stroke on Swan Lake as part of a Spinal Cord Injury B.C. activity.

Members welcome open atmosphere Continued from A18 “You can see their eyes open wide when they have the ability to talk to others who’ve been in the chair for a while and get to understand some of the experiences and challenges that they experience early in their injury and even today,� said Foote. “Part of it’s interaction, participation and the ability for us to just sit here and just share something that we all get, that nobody else gets.� The group also provides them with a chance to get out and do things they wouldn’t normally do, and in some cases, things that they didn’t know they could do. “When we’re doing these activities with each other it’s much easier if you’re doing it with other people who are all doing it for the first time and are in the same situation,� said Gaudet. One member, Scott James admits he had a really difficult time when he first started in a chair like most people do, but thanks to groups like these ones, he was able to get out and get back doing some of the

things he enjoys. “I really didn’t like being in a chair for a long time, I despised it,� he said. “I was in a town where there wasn’t really anyone else in a chair, then I moved out here. I met Sonya about five years ago and she got me to start playing tennis and just opening up to new things and new experiences. Sometimes it’s really easy to trap yourself inside or just give into the depression. “It’s harder to get out there and get stuff done. If you help some-

one who’s just fresh in a chair, it’s for the better. I find that people who are fresh in the chair can even help those who have been in it for a long time,� said James. For more information on SCI-BC visit www.sci-bc.ca. If you’d like to meet with the Vernon group, e-mail Sonja Gaudet at Sgaudet@sci-bc.ca “We would like anyone that’s interested in coming out, even if it’s not on a regular basis, to just come out whenever they can and just see what it’s all about,� said Gaudet.

Obesity a concern

H

ealth professionals are greatly concerned about the epidemic of childhood obesity in today’s society and so am I. That’s why I seconded MP Royal Galipeau’s motion, C-319 on children’s health, calling on the federal government to encourage individuals and organizations to commit to participating in the promotion of healthy weights, informing Canadians of the health consequences of childhood obesity as well as providing information on healthy diet choices. I am pleased to report that this motion passed unanimously in

Parliament Sept. 19. I recently met with a local representative in our riding from the Heart and Stroke Foundation. During our meeting, I was informed that the Heart and Stroke Foundation campaign this year is promoting awareness and educating Canadians to make healthy Colin Mayes food choices for their children. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 33 per cent of children do not drink enough milk, 70 per cent don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables and 93 per cent of Canadian children are inactive.

MP REPORT

According to these statistics, it’s no wonder childhood obesity has tripled in the past 30 years. To help Canadians make healthy food choices, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is proposing the Health Check program. This program will set a guideline for identifying nutritious foods and providing that information on food packaging. Labeling needs to be reliable and monitored to ensure claims made on products are factual. Making this information available to consumers will encourage purchasing products that support the healthy diet their children need. Obesity trends must be addressed. The former chair-

Local workers join new union Morning Star Staff

Workers at a trucking company with a Vernon presence have joined a new union. On Oct. 1, the B.C. Labour Relations Board certified the B.C. Transportation and Warehousing Association, local 402, as the bargaining agent for 120 drivers and warehouse personnel employed by Clark Reefer Lines.

Clark Reefer Lines operates a fleet of trucks and a warehouse facility in Coquitlam. It has satellite operations in Vernon, Prince George, and smaller centres throughout the province. Local 402 is a new local affiliated with the Christian Labour Association of Canada. Prior to joining CLAC, the employees at Clark Reefer were represented by an employee association.

person of the standing committee on health, Rob Merrifield stated, “Today’s children will become the first generation for some time to have poorer health outcomes and a shorter life expectancy than their parents.” We must get serious about this issue; not just to save future health care costs, but to save our children.

n his second trip to North America in 1494, Christopher Columbus dropped anchor off the north coast of Hispaniola, Haiti, and unloaded 24 stallions and 10 mares. They were the first of their kind in the western hemisphere and their descendants would dramatically change life in the new world. These horses were descended from the barb horses of North Africa that the Moors brought with them when they fought Spain in 711. They were unlike the heavy, powerful horses of northern Europe that had been bred to pull a plough or carry a knight in armour. They were raised primarily for riding in the hot, dry climate of North Africa and Ken Mather Spain and were lean and quick, qualities that were especially favourable both for combat and for chasing the half-wild cattle of Andalusia. The conquistadors brought horses to the mainland of Mexico in 1519 where the short grasses and unbounded plains and mountains made them even wirier. Over the next centuries, these small, wiry horses escaped from their owners and wandered northward into territory that would become the U.S. In their wild state, they grew as fleet as deer and as strong as oxen. Generation after generation of horses lost size and gained “wind.” What they lost in beauty, they gained in utility. They were made for running and making quick turns, and their lungs, expanded from generations of freedom, gave them the ability to run all day. These superbly conditioned horses moved northward onto the Great Plains and through California into the mountainous and wet climate of the northwest. In Oregon and the Great Basin area, they encountered larger horses that had descended from the Norman and Breton breeds

introduced into New France and used by the fur traders who moved into the area in the early 1800s. The result was a stockier, heavier horse that still possessed the speed and stamina of the Spanish breeds. The Hudson’s Bay Company in Oregon Country (today’s Oregon, Washington and B.C.) used these horses to carry trade goods into and furs out of northern B.C. By the 1840s, the HBC had established breeding programs at some of its forts in the Pacific Northwest, including Fort Kamloops. As the company needed large horses that could carry heavy packs, not riders, the horses were bred for size, something that the French Norman and Breton horses were known for. This gave them strength and endurance. As the fur trade employees, mostly French Canadians, left the HBC and took up land in the Pacific Northwest, they brought these horses with them. Their bloodlines were further enhanced by the introduction of new breeds, notably Morgans and thoroughbreds, by settlers arriving from the eastern U.S. on the Oregon Trail. Before long, the horses of the Pacific Northwest were acknowledged as among the finest on the continent. With the signing of the Oregon Treaty in 1846 between Britain and the U.S., the territory south of the 49th parallel was lost to the HBC. The company’s forts south of the border were instructed to move their cattle and horses north to Fort Kamloops where the bunchgrass ranges were plentiful. As a result, the HBC moved a large number of horses, including 200 brood mares, to Kamloops, where they flourished. A large number of the horses escaped into the wild and added a genetic boost to the wild horses already in the area. These horses were to find a ready market across the mountains on the prairies in the years to come. Ken Mather is curator at O’Keefe Ranch.

Cotter rink earns $4K in New West

FALL FACEOFF

Morning Star Staff

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Tyler Hatten (right) of the North Okanagan Legends goes up against Karsten Huth of Kamloops in the Fall Faceoff field lacrosse tournament Saturday at Marshall Field. The Legends’ Under 12 team had a tough weekend, losing every game, but they worked hard each time out. The U14 Legends went 1-2 in preliminary play, but rebounded to ground Edmonton for bronze. The U16s also went 1-2 in the round-robin, but fell to Calgary in overtime in the bronze-medal game.

A week after winning his hometown cashspiel, Vernon’s Jim Cotter turned in a quarterfinal performance at the $52,000 Westcoast Curling Classic last weekend in New Westminster. Cotter, backed by third Jason (Gunner) Gunnlaugson of Winnipeg, and the front end of Ty Griffith and Rick Sawatsky, pocketed $4,000 in falling 6-2 to Vancouver’s Andrew Bilesky in the quarterfinals. The foursome had just two practice sessions together before they stepped on the ice for the Prestige Hotels Curling Classic last month in Vernon. The lack of familiarity with the hard-throwing Gunnlaugson, who replaced outgoing third Kevin Folk, doesn’t seem to have affected their game. “We’re definitely happy with how it went,” said Cotter. “We don’t expect to win every weekend...but we’re flowing along pretty well. “He (Gunnlaugson) has been a great fit to our team. He has a great wealth of curling knowledge.” Cotter went 3-2 in preliminary play with 6-2 wins over Alberta’s Dan Petryk and Port Coquitlam’s Randy Shen, and a 4-2 decision over Saskatchewan’s Brock Virtue. The Vernon rink bowed 7-5 to Victoria’s Charley Thomas and 7-4 to Bilesky. Cotter needed a 9-4 tiebreaker win over Petryk to advance to the eight-team playdowns. He traded deuces with Petryk over ends one and two before breaking the game open with a four-ender in three. Edmonton’s Kevin Martin won his third straight Westcoast Classic with an 8-6 win over Bilesky in the championship game. Down a point heading into the seventh end, Martin counted two and then stole a single in eight for $14,000. Bilesky banked $9,000. The Cotter rink will have a few weeks to fine-tune its play before the $70,000 Cactus Pheasant Classic, Oct. 25-28, in Brooks, Alta.

Vipers snap three-game skid with OT win over Warriors KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Only nine games in and the Vernon Vipers and West Kelowna Warriors are already in playoff mode. And with five teams separated by just four points, it’s a wise mind-set in the B.C. Hockey League’s Interior Division. The Vipers brushed back the Warriors 2-1 in an overtime thriller before 1,500 fans Saturday night at the Wesbild Centre, ending

a three-game losing skid and closing to within two points of the Trail Smoke Eaters. “Four teams make the playoffs so we just want to make the playoffs, where you know you’re going to play a really good team right off the bat,” said West Kelowna head coach Rylan Ferster. The Vipers, who missed the playoffs last year, improved to 3-4-0-2 and one win back of the final playoff berth, held by the Smokies.

Vernon visits the ever-improving Salmon Arm SilverBacks Friday night and take on the Chiefs Saturday night in Chilliwack. Colton Sparrow’s roof-daddy snipe past Tyler Briggs with 49 seconds left in the first overtime ended a game which, after a feel ‘em out first period, was a beauty. “This was obviously a big bounce back game,” said Sparrow. “They’ve got good team speed like us so it was a good match-up.

To win an Interior Conference game against that team is a big turnaround for us.” Viper head coach Jason Williamson said Saturday morning he was expecting more from some of his players, and he was likely talking about Sparrow and former Portland Winterhawk Pearce Eviston, who combined on the winner.

Sports Hidasi hustles for U19 win

Marauders roll past Broncos Morning Star Staff

Keaton Vernon racked up 131 rushing yards and two touchdowns as the Vernon Marauders iced the Salmon Arm Broncos 36-0 in Southern Interior Junior Bantam Football Conference action Sunday. Outstanding blocking by Tyler Sova, Noah Slimmon, Kaiden Parton, Jackson Ponipal, Landon Fitt and Isaac Olsen created some great opportunities for their running backs at the Salmon Arm Savings & Credit Union Field. Slimmon broke his wrist and will be lost for the rest of the season. Connor Manahan supplied one TD and 115 yards rushing. The final TD was scored by Morgan Nichols. Sebastian Sanchez was the defensive player of the game, scoring a TD on a fumble recovery, rushing for 60 yards on a punt return, stripping the ball three times that led to fumble recoveries for teammates and recording eight tackles. He was also successful on 3-of-5 convert attempts. Tyler Riva, Zack Rogers, Sam Knox, Joe Bateman and Miles Forrest were also solid on the

Marauder defence. The 5-2 Marauders have now won four in a row, good for third in the six-team league. They host the league-leading West Kelowna Sun Devils (6-1) Sunday afternoon (1:00) at Grahame Park. The Vernon Pee Wee Yellow Jackets scored early and often to remain undefeated with a 43-0 ambushing of host Salmon Arm Colts Sunday. Ethan Anderson opened the scoring with a one-yard quarterback sneak and Bryce Tkachuk followed it up with a powerful 19-yard gallop to the end zone. To end the first, Zack Smith hit Riley Macgillivray on a 34-yard pass to make it 23-0. In the second quarter, converted lineman Carson Hamming rambled in from 24 yards out and Macgillivray took it 49 yards to the end zone to put the visitors up 35-0 at the half. “This game was a good opportunity to work on our passing game and give a lot of boys an opportunity to carry the ball,” said interim Jackets’ coach Jeff Anderson. The second half saw a lone touchdown drive, a one-yarder

Lakers land fourth at UBC Okanagan Invitational Morning Star Staff

The Kalamalka Lakers collected fourth place at the UBC Okanagan Invitational high school senior girls volleyball tournament last weekend at UBC Okanagan. With just eight players, Kal finished second in Tier 1 pool play, rebounding from an opening loss to the Kelowna Owls (15-25 19-25) by stuffing North Vancouver’s AAAA Handsworth Royals 25-17 25-18 and South Slocan’s Mt. Sentinel Wildcats 25-11 18-25 15-9. Sam Bienias and Megan Squair split setting duties and made great progress on running an efficient attack. Daralynn Schepp came up with some key kills against Sentinel. “Playing against teams like KSS and KCS (Kelowna Christian Knights) that have 15 players was a bit challenging as the fatigue factor set in,” said Maria Hansen, who was

subbing for head coach Jeff Huggins. In crossover play Saturday, the Lakers swamped Vancouver’s Crofton House Cubs 25-21, 25-18 to advance to the quarterfinals where they grounded the Vernon Panthers 25-19, 25-19. Facing a tall Kelowna Christian team in the semis, Kal sent it to a third game after a timely stuff block by Emily Thorlakson, but eventually fell 22-25, 25-27, 15-13. Libero Kaely Johnson made some crucial saves to keep the score tight. Kal pushed the Owls to three games in the consolation final, bowing 14-25, 25-19, 8-15. Vicky Schley, learning the right side position on the fly, came up with some key digs in the back row. Kaelyn Parmalee and Toni Vandenbrink were solid two-way players all weekend, earning all-star awards. Meanwhile, the Fulton Maroons settled for

13th at the UBCO tourney. The Maroons bowed 25-19, 25-20 to the powerhouse Elphinstone Cougars of Gibsons in quarterfinal play Saturday. “We led for most of the game in both sets, but could not close it out,” said Fulton coach Sharon Shaigec. In consolation play, Fulton lost in straight sets to a pair of AAAA schools – South Kamloops Titans (25-14, 25-13) and Pen-Hi Lakers (25-18, 25-21). “South Kam has some very big players and they shut our offence right down,” said Shaigec. “The team definitely played better as a unit (against Pen-Hi), but once again we were not able to capitalize on free balls and they outpowered us at the net.” The Maroons head to Kelowna this weekend for the Best of the West Tournament.

Vernon Secondary grad Matthew Hidasi clocked second place in the Under 19 division at the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon Sunday on Vancouver Island. Racing under calm, sunny conditions, Hidasi completed the 42.2-kilometre ocean-side route in three hours, six minutes and 27 seconds. A pair of Kenyan runners – Thomas Omwenga, now of Winnipeg, and Gilbert Kiptoo – finished first (2:20:40) and second (2:27:01) overall. Vancouver’s Graeme Wilson was third in 2:29:27. Other North Okanagan runners competing in a field of 1,600 include Philip Carruthers (men’s 45-49, 3:33:56); Alex Bradley (M 50-54, 3:34:02), Terryn Thachuk (W 35-39, 4:04:20), Alison Carruthers (W 45-49, 4:27:18), Brenda Wightman (W 45-49, 5:05:44) and Susan Falkenholt (W 45-49, 5:30:43). In the half marathon (21.1 km), Vernon’s Graeme Corbett (M 35-39) was the top local male in 1:36:56, followed a minute later by Bob Annand (M 55-59). Karen Jespersen, racing in the women’s 45-49, was the top female, finishing in 2:07:10. Other locals racing in a field of 4,700 include Deena Whittaker (W U19, 2:16:34),Chris Jmio (M 40-44, 2:19:20), Jeff Frasch (M 45-49, 2:23:19) and Mary Elton (W 60-64, 2:31:40). Meanwhile, at the BMO Okanagan Marathon Sunday in Kelowna, Steve Briggeman won the men’s 50-59 age group, and finished 23rd overall, with a 3:14:09.

Scouts visit Viper den Continued from A24 “I won the puck behind the net there and walked out front,” said Sparrow, who has three goals on the season. “I had Pearce sitting in the slot there so I just threw it there hoping somebody would bang it in and it managed to sneak back out to me up top and I saw a corner so I put it there.” Sparrow talked with a recruiter from the Sacred Heart Pioneers of Milford, Conn. moments after the win, but he has not committed to any NCAA school yet. The same Sacred Heart coach met with Viper d-man Ryan Renz Saturday night. Adam Tambellini beat Briggs with a prolike snapper from the high slot to give Vernon a 1-0 first-period lead. Aaron Hadley and Renz drew assists on Tambellini’s lazer, his team-high fifth of the year. The Warriors, who had one goal waved off, equalized at 1:47 of the third when Seb Lloyd finished off a three-way passing play with David Pope and Brett Zarazun. West Kelowna outshot Vernon 34-31 with both Briggs and Viper goalie Austin Smith spectacular in a fast, entertaining tilt with a handful of monster hits. Rookie 17-year-old forward Craig Martin,

who has hands softer than an old leather couch and cotton candy combined, saw a regular shift and some time on the Vipers’ dysfunctional powerplay. He is getting better used to the pace and looking comfortable after a scorching 48-goal, 96-point KIJHL stint a year ago. “It was great,” said Martin, of the victory. “It’s nice to get back in the win column for sure; it was a good all-around team effort. They’re a good team. They work hard and they’ve got a lot of skill up front.” As for what the Vipers have to tweak in the coming weeks, the Trail product said: “I think we just have to keep competing hard each night and if we can get those little lapses out of our game, we’ll be good.” The Warriors have lost three overtime games, but with a bounce, could have left Vernon with an extra point. “I’ll probably be our hardest critic, but I told them that we played good,” said Ferster, a former Vernon Laker. “I thought we controlled a lot of the game, had some real good chances, a couple of good ones in overtime. I guess when you break it all down, when you come into another team’s building, you’re probably going to have to score more than one goal and that’s what it would have taken tonight. But full marks to them.” The Warriors share second place with the Merritt Centennials, seven points back of the 9-1 Penticton Vees. “I certainly think our team speed is

I think we’re like most teams, we still have the fine details of the game to work out.” The SilverBacks, almost given up for road kill, actually used the Island highway trek to all of a sudden get in the playoff battle, one point back of the Vipers.

Vernon product Alex Gillies pocketed 2+2 and Colin Dzijacky recorded 61 saves as Salmon Arm surprised the Nanaimo Clippers 4-3 in a matinee overtime game before 700 fans Sunday at Frank Crane Arena. Gillies scored unassisted 78 seconds into the second overtime. Jason Trott scored twice as the SilverBacks bounced the Cowichan Valley Capitals 4-2 Saturday night.

for standing in there with a tough player when he really didn’t have a choice. “It was chippy and Penticton was getting frustrated. Our guys were playing physical and when you’re only mustering four or five shots a period (Knights outshot Lakers 32-14), you’re going to get frustrated.” Knights’ defenceman Mac Ferner (2nd) kept North Okanagan (7-1-0-1) rolling with a seeing-eye shot from the point early in the second period. Derek Andrews, netting his first of the season, capped the scoring on a goal-mouth scramble. “That was one of his (Andrews) best games I’ve seen him play in a while,” said Mallette. “He’s not a flashy guy but he was supporting the puck extremely well all night. “The guys skated very well. Still a little scrambly in our zone but our forwards were able to expose them with their speed. We created a lot of odd-man rushes.” Dustin Nikkel cruised to his first shut-

Josh Ellis recorded the Gordie Howe hat trick as the North Okanagan Knights thumped the Penticton Lakers 4-0 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Saturday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Ellis, a late cut by the BCHL Salmon Arm SilverBacks, scored his first of the season with a bar-down one-timer seven minutes into the first period. He and Mat Lambert assisted on linemate Brett Hawrys’ rebound goal, his second of the season, to make it 2-0 later in the period. Lambert, Ellis and Hawrys earned first, second and third star respectively. Ellis, who played on a line with Lambert in Major Midget last season with the Okanagan Rockets, found himself in a scrap with Penticton’s JR Krolik right off the opening faceoff of the second period. “Ellis isn’t a fighter; Krolik is tough, very tough,” said Knights’ head coach Kris Mallette. “I give Josh a lot of credit

out of the season, dropping the Lakers to 2-6. Nikkel’s .950 save percentage is tops in the KIJHL. The Knights will put their six-game winning streak on the line this weekend in a home-and-home against the undefeated Sicamous Eagles (5-0-0-2), starting Friday night (7:30) at Nor-Val. The second leg goes Saturday (7:00) at the Sicamous Rec Complex. The Eagles feature 15 returnees and 11 1993-born players, so Mallette knows it will be a good test. “They’re a good team that knows where everybody’s at,” said Mallette. “They’re nothing flashy but they come at you hard and they play well in their own rink.” ICE CHIPS: Mallette was unsure whether forward Harlan Orr will be back in the Knights’ lineup for the weekend. Orr, a Vernon product, went scoreless in three games as a call-up with the SilverBacks during their Vancouver Island road swing last weekend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Hunches or perceptions should not be ignored, especially if they pertain to your commercial affairs. There’s a good chance your intuition will zero in on things your logic overlooks. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Some of your bigger expectations might have a better chance of fulfillment than will your lesser ones. It behooves you to not put any limitations on your thinking. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) When it comes to your work or career, you could be exceptionally fortunate when working on vital projects. Don’t be afraid to handle more than one task simultaneously. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Something in which you’re involved has excellent potential for success, as long as it’s reorganized. This is an especially good day to take some time to make improvements. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) There is a good chance that you could reap some rather substantial benefits from shifting conditions. Even a few sudden changes could prove to be lucky for you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Things could work out quite well in a partnership situation, if the ideas you have mesh well with the course of action your partner wants to take. Work together. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You are likely to discover that what you have to offer, whether it is an idea or a product, could be more

valuable than you first realized. Rethink the deal you made with another. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You won’t just be a good leader, you’re also likely to be a very capable manager. Make sure you’re both when dealing with sticky situations. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Things will work out in the long run if you are patient enough to wait it out. Don’t get disturbed over a matter that gets off track it’s just a temporary mishap. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Because you’ll know how to make everyone you encounter feel that he or she is special, your popularity is likely to reach a high point. You’ll deserve the pats on the back you receive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although it might come as a surprise, Lady Luck will tend to favor you. The two areas in which she is likely to reward you pertain to your status and finances.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder WATCH TRUMPS AND COUNT SPADES In yesterday’s deal, declarer had to try to get a complete count so that he could work out how to play the heart suit. Luckily, it is only rarely that you need to track three suits to work out the fourth. Normally, worrying about trumps and perhaps one other suit suffices. But if you find it tough, count all day long. Every time you go up or down stairs, count them. When walking, count your paces. When you are a passenger in a car, count pedestrians, or white cars, or trees, or whatever. If you are used to counting away from the bridge table, doing it at the table will not be so difficult. What does South need to

count here? West leads the club king against South’s contract of four hearts. South’s two-heart rebid guaranteed at least a six-card suit. With only five hearts, he would have shown a second suit, rebid one no-trump, or raised spades. South has four losers (two diamonds and two clubs) and nine winners (two spades, six hearts and one club). He must establish dummy’s spade suit, which means watching that suit and trumps. The safest line is this: Win the first trick with the club ace, play a heart to dummy’s eight, cash the ace-king of spades, and ruff a spade high in hand. Did both opponents follow throughout? If so, draw two more rounds of trumps ending in the dummy

SAVE TIME. SAVE MONEY.

and run the spades for an overtrick. Here, though, West discards on the third spade. Now South plays a heart to dummy’s nine, ruffs another spade in hand, returns to dummy with a trump to the ace, and cashes the spade six for 10 tricks: three spades, six hearts and one club.

Salmon Arm SilverBacks are on the market MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

It’s official. The Salmon Arm SilverBacks are for sale.

General manager and minority owner Troy Mick told the B.C. Hockey League board of governors that the

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice On page 12 of the October 5 flyer, the "Add Microsoft Office for only $79.99 to any PC or Mac" Promotion (WebCodes: 10145418 / 10155543) was advertised with an incorrect price. Please be advised that the CORRECT price for this promotion is $99.99. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

Junior A franchise is “100 per cent for sale.” “It means that for the last year or two years, people were thinking it was for sale, or not for sale – was Randy (Williams) going to sell. Now it’s public knowledge that he’s going to sell,” said Mick. Mick said players

“It would be nice to find local investors.” — Troy Mick were aware at the start of the season this could happen, and the sale

will not affect current operations. “Definitely not, no –

Randy, Terry (Williams) and I are committed to everything we’re doing so far and will continue to do until a new owner is found.” Mick’s job now is to prepare information for investors and then make sure the sale is right for Salmon Arm. “My goal right now is to get a great ownership group that can continue on with this franchise. That’s my biggest goal.” When Mick joined the organization, the sale was part of the discussion. “The idea coming in as minority owner was that I would get an ownership group to take over the team... I’m calling the people who have expressed interest in the past and investigating new leads. The biggest thing I want to stress, is it will make no difference this year to hockey operations.” As for Mick’s involvement with the team, he says that will depend on the new owners. “They’ve entrusted me with finding the next ownership group for the

long-term good of this organization. That will take a lot of time, I care about this community tremendously. Whether I’m included or other people are included – right now everything’s on the table,” he says. “For me, there won’t be any strings attached. They might want to clean house. If they see what we’ve done over the last year, we hope not.” His aim is to have a sale complete by April 1, 2013 and the transition to new owners by April 30. “Obviously the intent is me getting my own ownership group in...,” he said, noting he doesn’t have the one to two million needed to buy the franchise. “It would be nice to find local investors to take over the team and, if not, an outside identity to continue on. This is a great franchise, people have been phenomenal. Obviously we’re reloading the sucker, continuing to make this the best program in the league, which it will be.”
