Hunter uninjured in bear attack RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A North Okanagan man is lucky to have escaped serious injury after an attack by a grizzly bear. A hunter was out looking for game when he walked into an area near the Harris Creek forest service road, south of Lumby, Saturday. “He saw a brown blur come at him and it knocked him down,” said Barb Leslie, a conservation officer inspector with the Ministry of Environment. The man used his rifle to poke the bear in the face but there was no opportunity to fire a shot. “The bear broke off within a few seconds when the (man’s) partner came upon the scene.” A grizzly bear sow and her cubs were seen leaving the area. It’s believed they were feeding on

“He saw a brown blur come at him and it knocked him down.” — Barb Leslie

a deer carcass when the hunter came upon them. The confrontation created the potential for serious injury or death. “The individual is extremely fortunate that he didn’t sustain any injuries,” said Leslie. With hunting season well underway, Leslie is urging anyone visiting the backcountry to be cautious. “Bears are not denned up yet and they are feeding and people need to be aware of their sur-

roundings,” she said. “If you are seeing bear prints in the snow, you may want to consider where you are going.” It’s not known if the sow bear had killed the deer or if she and the cubs just came across the carcass. “There are wolves and coyotes in that area.” Conservation officers continue to receive complaints about nuisance bears in residential neighbourhoods and rural areas in the North Okanagan. To keep bears away, residents are asked to secure garbage cans ad barbecues, clean up ripe fruit and remove bird feeders and pet food. “They are looking for food sources right now,” said Leslie of building up fat reservoirs for hibernation. “Don’t leave anything out that bears can get into.”

The last piece of Vernon’s main street is going to be transformed. Eighty-one per cent of the property owners, representing 66 per cent of the property values, have agreed to fund $250,000 in streetscape improvements to 30th Avenue from 33rd to 35th streets. “We give full credit to the business and propDowhaniuk erty owners. They understand the benefit of this,” said Mark Dowhaniuk, the City of Vernon’s infrastructure engineer. Other parts of 30th Avenue have been revitalized for years but property owners between 33rd and 35th streets were reluctant to participate because of the cost. With the successful vote, Focus Corporation has been contracted for design work. “We are meeting with all of the business owners and property owners next week (Wednesday) to go through the design,” said Dowhaniuk. The goal is for construction to begin in March and be completed before July. “It’s a pretty aggressive schedule,” said Dowhaniuk, adding that the city wants to minimize the impact to merchants, residents and tourists. “Businesses will be open throughout construction.” The total cost of the project is $2 million, with the property owners providing $250,000 for street furniture, decorative bricks and twinkle lights. The city will contribute the remainder of the funding for sewer, water and asphalt upgrades.

RCMP report quiet evening

Halloween wakeskate

Bear sniffs around for Halloween goodies Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Irene and Gunther Spann had just handed out some goodies to their first trick-or-treaters when not five minutes later they received a Halloween scare. The Coldstream couple, and their son, looked out their window Halloween evening to see a big brown bear sniffing their carved pumpkins. “We had just had two young boys dressed up as bananas at the door,” said Irene, who lives near Kalamalka Lake on Coldstream Creek Road. “About five minutes later my son said, ‘Oh my gosh, there’s

a bear on the porch.’” After checking out the lit-up jack-o’lanterns, the bear wandered into their yard, where he knocked down a bird feeder and then unsuccessfully tried breaking into their compost before moseying off. “It (Halloween) is usually pretty quiet, but it made for a pretty exciting night,” said Irene, who guesses the bear was probably 400 lbs. The Spanns alerted the conservation office, RCMP and their neighbours about the bear and warned the rest of the trickor-treaters that came to the door. “We were worried about the little

ones,” said Irene, who figures the two banana-clad trick-or-treaters must have just missed crossing paths with the bear. “We only get about five trick-or-treaters so we’d hate to scare them off with that.” The Spanns have seen bear scat in their yard since summer, but hadn’t seen the actual bear until now. “They do live here,” said Irene, as bears are known to frequent the area. But being just up from Kidston Elementary, the couple hopes parents of kids at the school keep the bear presence in mind for safety sake.

It was an uneventful Halloween evening for the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP detachment. Police responded to less than 80 calls for service in the entire detachment coverage area. “Overall it was a quiet night but there were a few interesting calls for our officers,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. One of those interesting calls was from downtown Vernon at around 11 p.m. A bylaw officer reported two men walking south on 32nd Street dressed in dark clothing and one carrying a baseball bat. An RCMP officer stopped the pair and searched both men. The officer located a replica pellet handgun, an exacto knife and a lock blade knife on one suspect. The other suspect, 17, also had a knife on him, contrary to conditions on his probation order and recognizance. He was arrested for the breaches. Officers seized the knives, pellet gun and assorted tools. The second man, 20, was allowed to go home. At around 10:40 p.m., officers were in the area of the Real Canadian Superstore parking lot where they noticed a woman they had earlier seen wandering around downtown. “When they asked the female for identification she stated she didn’t have any,” said Molendyk. “She did provide a name, however our officers were a bit suspicious of it.” After speaking further to the woman, she provided her real name and advised she did not want police to know her name as she was on conditions not to leave the city of Kelowna. The officers also noticed the smell of liquor on her. The 44-year-old Kelowna resident admitted to the consumption of liquor, for which she was also on conditions to abstain. She was returned to the Vernon detachment for court Thursday morning. “It turns out that she is a suspect in the taking of an auto without the owner’s consent out of Kelowna earlier in the day,” said Molendyk, adding officers located the vehicle a short distance from where the woman was arrested.

Incident leads to firearm ban for Enderby man

Halloween FasHion

RogeR Knox Morning Star Staff

An Enderby man has been given conditional sentences and a firearms prohibition following a summer shooting incident in Enderby. David Duaine Almaas, 47, pleaded guilty to counts of careless use of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle in Salmon Arm Provincial Court Monday. Judge Edmond De Walle gave Almaas six-month conditional

sentences on both counts along with two years probation and a mandatory 10-year firearms prohibition. Almaas must also provide a DNA sample for a data bank. Enderby RCMP received a report in July of shots being fired at a home on Kildonan Avenue close to 6 p.m. A man went to the home armed with a hunting rifle and fired a single shot into an unoccupied vehicle at the home. The shot brought a woman at the home out-

side to confront a man. Police said a second shot

was fired and that the particular house was tar-

geted. No one was injured.

Overseas key to job growth

Don’t let the flu bug you.

richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Get your flu shot at Shoppers Drug Mart. It’s easy, convenient and can help you stay healthy and well all season long.

B.C.’s economic future lies across the Pacific, according to Jobs Minister Pat Bell. Bell, speaking to the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce Wednesday, says job growth is dependent on China, India and other Asian nations. “Economic demand for investment in China and India is enormous,” he said at the luncheon at Tolko Industries’ corporate office. “They are creating

this huge middle class there. The wealth being amassed is like nothing we have seen before.” Bell gives Vernonbased Tolko credit for opening the doors to China as traditional lumber customers dried up in the recession and new markets were needed. “A lot of other companies were sitting by the wayside but Tolko said, ‘We have to carve our own way out of this.’” As a result of that new focus, China now

represents a third of all B.C. lumber production, and lumber prices have climbed. Bell also anticipates Asians investing in B.C. or coming here for holidays. He also wants to see a focus on international education. “It’s a $1.25 billion industry a year in B.C. It has enormous potential and it’s something we can grow at the University of B.C. Okanagan and Okanagan College,” he said. But if B.C. is to be

successful economically, Bell insists the province must be aware of its competition, specifically Brazil, the U.S. and Australia. “The Australians have been working hard to get into that market and they have a leg up on us,” he said. A challenge, though, is a lack of trained workers. “The trades are not seen as a preferred career option and that’s disconcerting,” he said, adding that his government has initiated a skills training plan. Beyond filling new positions, there is a need to fill vacancies due to retirements. If there aren’t enough British Columbians to do that, Bell says Quebec, Ontario and other countries must be considered as a source of workers. Bell is closely watching a new trade agreement between Canada and China. “It helps our industries secure investment in China and it tells China how it will have to operate in B.C.,” he said.

Construction of a new community hall in Grindrod could come to a halt unless senior government gets involved. The new hall in Grindrod Park will be at the lock-up stage by mid-November, but with about half of the required $400,000 raised, there is insufficient funds to complete the project. “It would be nice to have support from the province and the federal government,” said Herman Halvorson, with the Grindrod Recreation Association, who was confident senior help would surface. “All we have got from them is letters of support but we apparently don’t qualify for any funds. It’s good for the economy in terms of hosting events and it creates a sustainable community.” Halvorson questions why Grindrod can’t receive assistance when government funds have gone recently to recreational enhancements in Lumby and Vernon. “In Spallumcheen, there was $125,000 for a birthday party,” he said. The association decided to construct a new facility because the existing hall was built in 1905 and is in extremely poor condition. Halvorson says he will continue to lobby MP Colin Mayes and MLA George Abbott for funding. However, Mayes says the association was warned it wouldn’t be getting any federal cash. “Our funding was for upgrading existing facilities and they were advised they would be wise to

fix up the existing facility,” he said. There is no other funding right now. Our efforts are limited because of the financial situation.” Residents have donated money towards the community hall and $30,000 has come from the Enderby Lions Club. “There has been good local support,” said Halvorson. “Once the hall is completed, we will put a decorative maple leaf on the wall and it will mention all of the donors.” Abbott could not be reached for comment.

It’s a treat of a night

s a child of the ‘60s, I somehow managed to survive to adulthood while riding in a car without seatbelts, walking to school without a parent while only in Grade 1, and learning to skate and ski without the protection of a helmet. A couple of years ago, there was an e-mail circulating that detailed all of the joys of growing up in a certain era, and the fact that we all survived without the protective devices that exist today. As the parent of a young child, I wouldn’t dream of Katherine Mortimer letting her ride in the car without a booster seat secured by a seat belt, cycling without a helmet or walking to school by herself. It’s probably no more dangerous now than it used to be, so either we’re more aware of the dangers or just downright paranoid. Perhaps a combination of the two. And like most people of my generation, I bemoan the excess of electronics to which our children have access, while still making daily use of many of the delights of modern technology myself. A friend and I were talking the other day. Wise and the mother of three grown children and three grandchildren, she is someone whose advice I value and whose friendship I treasure. She was concerned about the rushing around I’m constantly subjecting myself to, and when was I going to learn to say no. A good deal of the rushing around involves getting my daughter to dance class and driving her to and from play dates. And yes, the word play date is very much a 21st century phenomenon, as those of us born of a certain time did not have play dates. We picked up the phone and asked our friends to play or, more likely, simply walked to a friend’s house, knocked on the door and the playing began several minutes later. And if your friend was not available, his or her mother told you so and off you went to go and play with someone else. All of this is a very long-winded way of saying I feel very nostalgic for my childhood and while

At RAndoM

I love much of what we take for granted today, I miss the simple, unplugged pleasures, the things so many children don’t get the chance to enjoy. But on Wednesday night, all of us had the chance to experience that simple, unplugged pleasure that is Halloween. In the grand scheme of things, going door to door and collecting candy is not a particularly noble endeavour. But walking through my neighbourhood last night with a friend, her two kids and my daughter, it was as though we had gone back in time 40 years. Kids squealing with delight, actually walking, not being driven, racing from one house to the next, as adults answering the doors exclaimed over their costumes, and the kids rushing from the porch with shouts of, “Thank you,” and “happy Halloween!” The lousy weather stayed away and it was a beautiful fall evening, as grown-ups chatted at the ends of driveways while our kids raced to front doors. There was a sense of camaraderie amongst all of the parents, a feeling of getting to know your neighbours, a feeling of times gone by. Like most kids, I loved Halloween, as much for the candy as for the chance to run around at night — on a school night, no less — and hang out with my friends. And so it was on Wednesday night. That same feeling of joy in staying out late on a school night, laughing and chatting and yes, collecting a kilo or two of candy and chips, and the fun of ringing the bell on a particularly spooky looking house, all decked out for Halloween, with the door answered by a real “witch,” a homeowner getting into the spirit of the night. And then of course, the sheer joy of getting home, racing into the living room and dumping the loot out onto the floor. And for chocoholics like me, of course, it’s the sheer joy of carefully swiping a few mini chocolate bars while the tired kid is sound asleep. How wonderful it would be to be able to take that old-fashioned, neighbourly feeling and extend it throughout the year. Hard to believe a night dedicated to ghosts, goblins and witches would be so filled with good cheer. I guess it’s time to throw the pumpkins in the compost and dig out the Christmas decorations.

Government money is doled out all of the time, but none of it is landing in Grindrod. The Grindrod Recreation Association is in the midst of constructing a new community hall but work will come to a halt because of a lack of funds. Specifically, much-anticipated grants from the federal and provincial governments have not materialized. And yet there has been cash directed towards a spray park in Lumby, a new community centre in Vernon and even 120th birthday festivities in Spallumcheen. If there is money available for these communities, why is Grindrod being passed by? Colin Mayes, OkanaganShuswap MP, insists Ottawa didn’t get involved because its grants program was only directed towards upgrading existing facilities and Grindrod’s plans didn’t conform. Rules are rules, but what if it doesn’t make financial sense to utilize the existing building? In Grindrod’s case, the existing hall was built in 1905, and no matter what improvements were made, it would still be an old structure. The most efficient option for the long-term needs of the community was a brand new hall. Certainly the association could be questioned for beginning work when all of the required $400,000 is not in hand. But when other organizations are tapping into senior government money, it’s easy to expect approval of your application. There doesn’t appear to be any consistency in who is accessing federal and provincial grants, and restrictions may be too restrictive and not encourage the best use of tax dollars. Mayes and MLA George Abbott need to investigate this matter further for Grindrod residents.

Pipeline protest misses the mark

ongratulations to all of those who attended the Defend our Coast Day. As stated in the article, it is an opportunity for people to "link arms to create an unbroken wall of opposition to pipelines, tar sands and oil tankers." And also to jobs and opportunities for young people. It's unfortunate that some people in this province want to continue to deny our children a future with their hypocritical nonsense. I say hypocritical because I'm sure most of those attending these rallies owns a vehicle and burns those terrible fossil fuels they are so against. After reading this article, I contacted my 19-year-old son, who graduated from Charles Bloom Secondary in 2011. Out of his class of 65 students, he knew of 15 other young adults besides himself who are currently working in the energy sector in Alberta, Saskatchewan

harper's world Prime Minister Harper sermonizes about the economy with the same fervour once employed by pagan priests to exalt their religious idols. According to Harper, the economy, i.e. the global production and consumption of goods and services, is the ultimate, all-knowing, all-powerful, selfregulating, beneficent deity. Harper wants Canadians to worship the economy on bendedknees while keeping our shoulders to the wheel and our noses pressed against the grindstone. Based on Harper’s behaviour, he must believe Canadians are either too timid or too dim-witted to participate in the hurly-burly of a real democracy where government programs and policies are openly discussed and debated with the sole purpose of improving legislation through collaboration and consensus In Harper’s world, constructive criticism does not filter up the ladder. In Harper’s world, Conservative decrees cascade down the ladder. In Harper’s world, spontane-

and northern B.C. These are just the people he associates with. I'm sure there are others as well. The saying used to be, "Go west young

ous outbursts of jubilation are not encouraged unless of course his federal government is publicly crucifying one of those so-called foreign-funded, radical environmental terrorists. In Harper’s world, Canadians are expected to disregard sciencebased studies on global warming and keep busy exporting natural resources as fast as humanly possible. And if we don’t submissively participate in Harper’s world, he just might contract out our jobs to China. lloyd atkins city hall Have you been following the on-goings at Vernon city hall when it comes to wasting our tax dollars? We have been led up the garden path when we foolishly believe that the mayor, et al, are directly responsible for coming up with new schemes to vacate the city coffers. It turns out that faceless, nameless peons scurry around dreaming up ridiculous ideas, hoping that they will take wing.

Man." Now, it seems this has changed to go east instead. Young men and women want to work and get ahead like we all do and jobs in tourism, arts and culture or the fast

For instance, before the sewer lines were put in to the Blue Jay subdivision, there were questions about why there wasn't a plan to widen the road so there could be a shoulder for people to walk or ride a bicycle. It seemed like a good idea. Well, the scurriers quashed that idea because it wasn't theirs. So life continues and the subject is dropped. Months later, people are wondering why there isn't a bike lane. Apparently, if someone dies walking or riding, something could be done. Not only that, it will only cost $150,000. So what is the shocking part of this statement? Not the $150,000. but that someone has to die. I didn't know that taxpayers grow on trees and are not allowed to have their concerns met. So, turn the page back a few years and visit the Coldstream Hotel fiasco. The cost to buy and then demolish would have started a well-funded revolution in Central America.

food industry don't cut it. Which is why we have this exodus of young people to Alberta and Saskatchewan because it seems B.C. is against any kind of progress. As for those who are so opposed to the Northern Gateway pipeline, Alberta has hundreds of thousands of kilometres of pipelines crossing the province and I don't recall any major environmental disasters due to ruptures. So instead of rallying against jobs and progress, these people should be rallying for more ways to add value to our resources, such as the one proposed by the owner of this paper, Mr. Black. Let's refine the oil coming from Alberta so we can export the finished product and create stable, well-paid employment for young people in this province before they all leave. Bill Grahn

Fortunately, we have turned that into the most expensive parking lot in Vernon. So the scurriers feel the heat and decide the taxpayers can afford $650,000 to sweeten the pot for future buyers that may want to buy the land at a fire sale price, naturally. People that live in the Blue Jay subdivision were told the regional district not taking responsibility for Old Kamloops Road beyond the turnoff to the subdivision is the reason why someone will have to be punted before anyone in the department will stand up and be counted. They probably went to the Armstrong fair and had a dose of reality while watching the whacka-mole game. Anyone else out there wonder about these items? Bob Johnston union people What are NHL players, making millions of dollars, going abroad to Europe or the AHL and taking jobs from players on the bubble, trying to eke out a living to feed their families?

Wow, what considerate union people these NHL players are. Frank Moria, Vernon Vipers fan

Travel expenses add up for Vernon-Monashee MLA richard rolke Morning Star Staff

The public’s business means racking up kilometres on the odometer and hours in airports.

B.C.’s Legislature has released travel expenses for all MLAs from April 1 to Sept. 30. This includes $31,243 for Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster and

$9,549 for Shuswap MLA George Abbott. “Wh e n the Legislature is sitting, flights are cheaper because you can book in advance,” said

Foster. “It b ecomes expensive when the Legislature isn’t in session and there are short trips back and forth to Victoria.”

Of the $31,243 for Foster, there was a capital city allowance ($8,400 for accommodations and a $2,166 per diem), in-constituency travel ($2,376), general travel ($10,803 for travel and a $567 per diem) and accompanying person travel (one trip at $2,494). There was also speaker-approved travel at $4,437. While in the constituency, Foster says he travels around meeting with residents and organizations. “It pays for all of the driving to Cherryville and around the constituency, including Silver Star,” he said.

“It pays for all the driving... around the constituency.” — Eric Foster

For Abbott, who could not be reached for comment, there was a capital city allowance of $1,000 for accommodation. There was also in-constituency travel ($3,563), general travel ($2,913 for travel and a $111 per diem) and accompanying person travel (three trips for $1,962). Foster says travel is necessary for elected

officials because of the geographic size of B.C. “Look at the guys coming from Fort St. John,” he said. “Look at the cheap ones and they are the ones with constituencies in Victoria.” The MLA travel expense summary can be found at www.leg. bc.ca/mla/remuneration/travel_expenses. htm

Alleged bullying prompts lawsuit TRACY HUGHES Black Press

A Salmon Arm woman is suing the North OkanaganShuswap School District in small claims court seeking damages for lost wages after she says bullying forced her to pull her son from public school and home school him instead. Leanne McIvor has filed documents in Salmon Arm court alleging the school district breached a duty of care by failing to protect her son from bullying and harrassment. She also alleges the school district is liable by failing to adopt, enforce and update

school policies on bullying, harassment and human rights conditions after a provincial ministerial order regarding human rights was issued to all school districts in 2007. In a statement submitted by McIvor to the courts and media, she says her efforts to resolve the situation with school administration and trustees have been unsatisfactory. “I have turned to litigation,” she writes, “just because my child and 300,000 children per month that report bullying in Canadian schools are not being heard.” “You hear so much

talking in the media and the current culture of zero tolerance and bullying. It would seem that the schools have this under control. They don’t.” The school district would not comment on this specific case as it is before the courts, but Glen Borthistle, acting superintendent, says the school district takes bullying seriously and has policies to deal with it at the school board level, as well as with many ongoing district and school programs for students and staff. “...Speaking generally, the district, under the umbrella of student

safety and wellness, has a multi-faceted approach to this complex issue by raising awareness of the bullying issue encouraging prevention as well as intervention programs. The wellness umbrella helps the district deal with the underlying causes of bullying and helps students learn about building positive relationships, and about the importance of mental health and physical wellness.” McIvor is seeking compensation for lost wages, saying she has been unable to gain employment, “due to the fact that I have to home school my son

The champagne flutes were filled with cold and clear water and raised in a toast to celebrate the completion of the North Westside’s newest water system. A ceremony was held Tuesday to officially open the Upper Fintry, Shalal Road and Valley of the Sun water system. “This new $6 million water system, the sixth operated and maintained by the regional district, saw the installation of approximately 12 kilometres of water mains providing both treated water and fire flows to more than 340 properties in the three areas,” said Robert Hobson, Regional District of Central Okanagan chairperson. “None of these properties have ever had domestic water service and residents have had to make

their own arrangements to get water.” Since construction of the water mains was completed in the spring, more than 50 properties have been connected, with another dozen in various stages of the connection process. RDCO received $800,000 in funding to help offset the cost of building the new water system, including $407,500 from the federal government and $400,000 from the provincial government. Property owners in the service contributed or financed $17,230 each. In addition to new water mains, a new well and pump station was built to support the system in the lower Fintry Delta area. As well, various control buildings and two reservoirs, with a total storage capacity of 1,746 cubic metres of water, were also constructed. “This community water system brings both reliability and increased fire safety to residents,” said Ben Stewart, Westside-Kelowna MLA.

Motorists are being warned of a new road closure in Vernon. Until about Nov. 8, 39th Avenue, between 16th and 14th streets, will be shut down because of paving. “There will be no access from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.,” said Courtenay Pitcher, the City of Vernon’s communications officer. Motorists are also reminded to expect 15-minute delays along Tronson Road until about Nov. 23. Pitcher Bennett Contracting, which is working for the City of Vernon, continues to construct the sanitary sewer main and related infrastructure on Tronson Road. The construction area is from the intersection at Tronson and Bella Vista roads, for two kilometres west to the Beachcomber Bay boat launch. “There will be single-lane traffic and up to 15 minute delays,” said Pitcher.

Eric Godard of the Penguins fights Donald Brashear of the Rangers; Godard and Pittsburgh teammates Sidney Crosby and Bill Guerin flash their Stanley Cup rings after defeating Detroit.

Godard lays down his mitts KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

One Stanley Cup ring. Three teams. Three hundred and thirty-five games. Six goals. Eighteen points. One hundred and nineteen fights. At 32, newly married and healthy, Vernon’s Eric Godard has ended his NHL career with a full set of teeth, a warm smile and some wonderful memories. One of the most feared enforcers since making his NHL debut with the New York Islanders in 2002-03, Godard will especially cherish his last three seasons with the starry Pittsburgh Penguins. “Pittsburgh, you can’t beat it, the greatest thing ever,” said the 6-foot-4, 212-pounder. “It was such a good team with so many good players and then (Dan) Bylsma came in to coach. (Michel) Therrien was good, but he was one of those coaches who was real hard on guys. You would see those guys do well for a short period of time and he would just

keep on them. That (type of coaching) seems to run its course. “Bylsma came in and he just put the challenge to the guys. The guys wanna play and the guys wanna work and he’s positive. Everybody wants the same results, to win, and he just challenges the guys and guys are gonna respond to that.” Asked how it felt skating with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin every day, Godard deadpanned: “Deflating. It’s fun to watch them. They’re so good. Just to see the guys at that level, especially those two guys because they do work. You see what they do, even coming back from injuries, at practice. The game comes at them in a different way. Hockey to them is different than hockey to me. They want you (role players) around. They’re team guys and that makes them even much better.” Godard never got in any playoff games with the Pens, but was on the ice when the Cup was passed around. He was made to feel

like a worthy player. “Absolutely. I went to work every day, went to practice every day. That’s what teams need to win. Everyone’s going to feel part of it and I felt part of it. I felt I was doing my part, whether that was practising hard or talking to guys, encouraging them, patting them on the back. I wanna win it too so I gotta help.” His ring put away in a safety deposit box, Godard and his wife, Myrika (nee Schipfel) have no firm plans for their future after hockey. Fondest memories? “Going to the rink every day. Obviously, Pittsburgh was such a good team and the city was awesome. I remember my first games with the Islanders and Calgary, being close, and the friends I made over the years. Right now, guys are kind of playing right now. I’m just trying to figure out what to do next. I wanna do something. I’m excited. “Going to the rink every day and playing hockey is fun. It’s a just a privilege to do. To

not do it anymore is gonna be different.” Godard had his $700,000 NHL contract bought out this summer by the Dallas Stars. He did consider playing for the AHL Connecticut Whale in Hartford, and while he hasn’t filed retirement papers, he’s definitely moving on, with his beloved French bulldog, Tonka, by his side. He will be best remembered for scraps against monsters like Derek Boogaard and Steve McIntyre which became big YouTube hits. Godard stunned Boogaard while playing for Calgary and broke McIntrye’s orbital bone as a Penguin, in two of his more rousing tilts. On dropyourgloves.com, Godard is listed as having 81 fights in two seasons with the Major Junior Lethbridge Hurricanes, and another 111 in the AHL with Louisville Panthers, Bridgeport Sound Tigers and the Omaha Ak-Sar Knights. He is counted as the winner of most fights.

Godard lists Laraque as the toughest Continued from A21

He credits wrestling with his three older brothers, some trial and error, and some tips from Lethbridge strength coach and kickboxing champion Trevor Hardy turning him into a powerful and respected fighter. Reads the HockeyFights. com details of a GodardDan LaCouture tilt from Feb. 26, 2004: “Perhaps avenging LaCouture’s running of Kvasha in the last meeting, he asks Dan to go off the draw. Long squareoff. Godard throws an early right and Lacouture counters with a couple of his own. Then Godard lands two big rights and Dan goes down to a knee. Godard lets up and allows Dan to get back up. The fight continues with Godard pelting Dan with right after right and the linesmen, seeing how the fight is one-sided, decide to break it up.” Godard says Terry Carkner broke his orbital bone and others busted his nose “a couple times, but nothing too bad.” He traded blows with every tough guy from Tie Domi to Donald Brashear and Georges Laraque. The toughest? “Laraque....I did pretty good against him. Brashear and I had some good ones. Laraque, they weren’t the best fights. He was so strong though. He’d just throw you down. I tried going toe to toe once. It was pretty good, but he then he just pulled me down. I remember him pulling me down. I was trying to do a full squat just to push out and he was just all arms.” From Pensburgh, the Penguins community website, in 2010: “There’s no such thing as a ‘company man’ in the NHL, but if there was, Godard might just fit the bill. He dressed in just 45 of the 93 total games, and played just 188 minutes in the games (4:11 per game) he did get into...Godard (who was voted ‘Player’s Player’ by his teammates in

2008-09) has never complained, never makes a fuss, just buckles down and does his best when he gets the chance. Which is fight and protect his boys.” Laraque, in his 2011 book entitled Georges Laraque: The Story of the NHL’s Unlikeliest Tough Guy, talks about how the Pens tried to sign him for less money and then signed Godard when he balked at the offer. “Maybe he (GM Ray Shero) scratched out my name and wrote Eric’s instead. Godard was quite a different player from me, but I knew he could do the job he’d be paid for. He was the one who would win the Stanley Cup. Life is strange sometimes. Congratulations to him. And to Shero too.” In the WHL, when multiple-fight games were the norm, Godard took on the likes of Todd Fedoruk, Stephen Peat, Mitch Fritz, Kris Mallette and Craig Brunel. His head coach in Lethbridge was former NHLer Bryan Maxwell. “Godard was tough,” recalls Mallette, now head coach of the Junior B North Okanagan Knights. “He was a big kid with long arms. I remember fighting him in front of the net and we both got our shots in.” Godard had finished a solid year of Midget AAA under Bill Higgins and Joe Oliver and was excited about playing lock for the B.C. Under 17 rugby team. He was listed and played in nine games with the Canes. “The coaches and the guys were really good. It was definitely an eye opener. You had to adjust quickly or you just weren’t going to make it. You saw guys come in and didn’t really feel comfortable. I was 18 too, so when (Sean) Ovington and those guys went away when they were 16, that must have been tough. At 16, if that opportunity came for me, I don’t think I would have been able to do it. I just matured later.” He scored his first goal

Eric Godard pours milk on his Stanley Cup Mini Wheats. in the Dub on a deflection in the Canes’ home opener, in front of family and friends. Godard gives props to Maxwell for jumpstarting his progression. ”He wanted you to show up everyday. He wanted to turn guys into pros. This is what the pro game is like; you’ve gotta show up every night or you’re not gonna make it, you’re not gonna go anywhere. At that level, in that league, those are the type of coaches you want. They’re going to try and get you to the next level.” Undrafted, Godard was signed as a free agent by the Florida Panthers on Sept. 24, 1999. Godard never played for Florida and on June 22, 2002 was traded to the Islanders for a third-round selection. His first pro game would make a great scene in Slap Shot. “It was in Louisville..I couldn’t believe it was happening. It’s funny because I went there and all I took

were my skates. Because it happened so quick, I couldn’t even get into the rink to get my gear. All I had was these old skates. So I went down there and I was so nervous, I forgot them at the apartment in the morning. The coach went up to me and said, ‘You’re going to practise and play tonight.’ I was thinking, ‘Oh God.’ I ended up lying and told him I was told I was here just to watch. So, a guy that was hurt took me back to the place, got my stuff, came back and got on the ice in time. I had all brand new gear and they didn’t have any shoulder pads so I was skating around my first practice, no shoulder pads. They must be thinking, ‘Who’s this clown, he’s got no shoulder pads and he’s playing tonight?’ Brent Thompson was the captain. He’s a funny guy and he was just carving into me.” Godard made his NHL debut with the Islanders

on Oct. 17, 2002 against Philadelphia. His WHL sparring partner, Fedoruk, made it a night to remember and forget. “I got a couple of shifts, got scored on my first shift. No fights. I remember Fedoruk was out there so I skated on the ice and I didn’t know what to do. His back was turned to me so I tried to give him a little crosscheck but I wasn’t even watching the play and the rebound came out right to him and right as I pushed him, he shot the puck into the empty net. And that was my first shift.” A charter member of the big bicep brotherhood, Godard treated every opponent with class. And he admits he didn’t always look forward to fight night. “Obviously, there’s gonna be some guys you don’t like because you’re kind of forced into it. We’re all kind of the same; we’re trying to stick around so you do respect the guys because you’re doing the same thing. Some nights, you’re definitely beat up, your hands are sore. But, you get pretty ready for it because you know it’s gonna happen. Some games, it’s kind of different. You’re not quite into it just because you’re banged up.” His first NHL snipe? “My first goal was against Ed Belfour. I don’t know if I wanna tell ya. It was off my skate. They had to review it.” Any breakaways? “I never had a breakaway. I should. All I wanted to do was try and go in one of the shootouts. I was pretty good. I would score on (Marc-André) Fleury all the time. I had his number. It (shootout) got close a couple of times with the Islanders. I remember getting nervous, thinking ‘I might actually get to go.’” Godard, who still has the Ford F150 truck he bought after cashing his first pro hockey check, began investing his money with a financial advisor recommended

by Flames’ teammate Rhett Warrener. His life coach and huge inspiration for the past several years has been Myrika, who went to school with Eric (VSS grads). She oozes of confidence and optimism, even laughing through their summer wedding despite wearing a walking cast and holding crutches. “She probably kept me in Pittsburgh a little longer. The GM there loved her. She’s been awesome. When I was in Calgary, she was kind of back and forth on weekends because she was working. It was tough when we first went to Pittsburgh. She went through some tough times with her family stuff, but once she was down there, she really helped me a ton. I’m a knucklehead. “She helped so much with the team. She’s so outgoing. She helped with Christopher’s Guests (Penguin wives foundation which helps families when medical emergencies bring them to the Pittsburgh area for a short or long term stay) and she did awesome. I think one year, she raised fourtysix grand. She really helped a lot, and she would go there twice a week and just set things up. She inspired me. She‘s really good putting herself out there. She’d be the first person to introduce herself to others. I guess she hates those awkward silences so she’s just friendly; she talks to everybody.” Godard, who has had epilepsy since he was 17 so doesn’t drink, hardly ended his hockey career with a Field of Dreams ending as he scored once and racked up 58 penalty minutes in 46 games with the AHL Texas Stars last season. He rarely suited up the second half of a season which saw the Stars bungle their way to secondlast in the 30-team league. They used 44 different players, including five goalies.

Canwest gets past Vinters

Hadley makes grade KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

It was a bad news turns into good news situation Thursday for the Vernon Vipers. GM/head coach Jason Williamson headed to the Kelowna International Airport to pick up centre Adam Tambellini and defenceman Kevin Guiltinan, both released following Team West tryouts in Calgary. Team West will defend its title at the World Junior A Hockey

Morning Star Staff

They did all their scoring in only three ends, and it was enough for Dave Merklinger’s Canwest Propane crew to remain undefeated in Baron Insurance Super League curling action. With Darren Heath throwing skip rocks, the propane quartet scored three in the second and deuces in the fourth and sixth, then held on to edge Heath’s mom, Sherry Heath, and her Devine Vintners squad 7-6 Wednesday night at the Vernon Curling Club. The vintners opened the scoring with a steal in the first and added singles in the third and fifth with the hammer. Sherry Heath cut her son’s lead to 7-5 with a pair in the seventh end, and had Canwest on the ropes in the eighth and final end by lying two. However, Darren Heath had an open hit and knocked out one of the rocks while the shooter spilled out, allowing a steal of one in the final end. Canwest Propane improves to 4-0 while Devine Vintners drops to 1-4. Darrell (Heavy D) Houston scored a five-spot in the first end, leading Nu Floors to a 9-6 win over Robbi Kuhn and North Enderby Timber. The Kuhn family battled right back, putting up three in the second and trailed 6-5 at the four-end break. Nu Floors’ front end of Carol Martel and Sam Vaniperen dictated play in the second half with the peel game, keeping the centre clean with the hammer. Things got dicey in the seventh end for Houston, who had to draw against two NET rocks. Again, the front end of Martel and Vaniperen pounded the brooms the whole way to secure a single point and handshakes from the Kuhn foursome. Nu Floors improves to 3-2, while NET drops to 1-4. A game between Mark Longworth and Jim Cotter was postponed to a later date. Cotter went 3-3, falling in a C Event semifinal to miss the playoffs at the Cactus Pheasant Classic last

Cotter, backed by third Jason Gunnlaugson, second Tyrel Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky, was eliminated in an 8-4 loss to Saskatoon’s Steven Laycock Saturday morning. Leading by a point in the seventh end, Laycock used the hammer to collect a triple and force early handshakes. The Vernon-Kelowna rink had earlier wins over Calgary’s Steve Petryk (5-4) and Brooks’ Scott Egger (7-6), and losses to Sweden’s Niklas Edin (5-4) and Edmonton’s Kevin Martin (6-5). Calgary’s Kevin Koe dethroned defending champion Mike McEwen of Winnipeg 6-5 in the championship game, pocketing $22,000. In the 32-team Silver Star Ladies Bonspiel last weekend, the Sun Valley Source For Sport A event winners were Team Korea with Eun Jung Kim, Kyeong Ae Kim, Seon Yeong Kim, Yeong Mi Kim and Min Jung Kim. The Vernon Veterinary Clinic B event was won by Team Mitchell of Vernon with Jami Mitchell, Karen Ranger, Carole Weitzel and Debbie Poggemoeller. Team Heath of Vernon took the Hi-Pro Sportswear D event with Susan Hamilton, Carol Martel, Sherry Heath and Colleen Reardon.

Knights scare Heat on Halloween Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Knights marked Halloween night with a somewhat scary 6-3 victory over the Chase Heat at Nor-Val Centre in Armstrong. Head coach Kris Mallette was hardly impressed as the first We can help with • Arthritis • Headaches/ migraines • Sciatica • Carpal Tunnel • Car Accidents/ Work injuries • Custom Orthotics • Therapeutic Grade Vitamins • Sports Injuries • Pregnancy • Stress Reduction We direct bill for ICBC, WCB and DVA

overall Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Knights improved to 13-2-0-1. The Heat fell to 4-12-1-1. “I’m disgusted with the way we’re playing,” said Mallette. “We’re a very skilled team and we’re resting on that right now.

What You’ve Been Waiting For We are extending our office hours for convenient chiropractic and massage care beyond the usual 9-5. Call now for morning/evenings during the week and 10-2 Saturdays.

In the last five games, we’ve been working hard, but we’re not working smart. We can’t break out of our zone on the first pass and our play in the offensive zone is an absolute disaster. There’s no attention to details.”

Mallette has challenged the Knights to show more intelligent play as they host the Summerland Steam (6-8-0-1) tonight and visit the Princeton Posse (9-6) Saturday night. The Knights, who have won six straight, got goals from Tyler Bolduc (4th), Morgan Johnston (9th), Mac Ferner (4th), Owen Barker (5th), Brett Hawrys (5th) and Derek Andrews (4th). Barker scored on a shorthanded penalty shot, awarded when he was taken down by d-man Reece Forman on a breakaway. Johnston connected after taking a breakaway pass just as he left the penalty box. North Okanagan outshot Chase 55-32 with Dustin Nikkel winning his 10th game. Jacob Mattes started and gave way to Devon Pearson after the Knights went up 4-1.

“They must have overthought things on Tamby,” said Williamson. “I don’t get that one. I’m happy for Hads. He brings an element not many players have. He’s hard-nosed, old school, and it’s pretty special for him to go for another gold medal.” Penticton has four players on the team (Stecher, Wade Murphy, James De Haas and Mike Rebry), while the Express have three (Kerfoot, Morley and Zach Pryzbek) as do the Kings (Richardson, Jonah Imoo and Luke Ripley). There are 15 BCHLers on the 22-man roster. Hadley will miss the next four Viper games, starting tonight when Trevor Fitzgerald, Colten Dahlen and the Nanaimo Clippers visit Wesbild Centre. While the Vipers welcome having Guiltinan and Tambellini around for the next 10 days, they will also say hello to winger Braeden Russell, a member of Team East in last year’s World Junior Challenge. Russell, a 6-foot-3, 205-pounder, badly injured his thumb in a fight, in a preseason game versus

the Wenatchee Wild. He scored 30 times over two seasons (77 games) with the Ontario Junior League Oakville Blades. “He’s a big body and he should be able to put the puck in the back of the net for us,” said Williamson. “He scored in that game against Wenatchee. He may be a little rusty. We’re going with 11 forwards so if he plays well, he’ll get more ice time.” Forwards Colton Sparrow (neck) and Brenden Persley (ankle) are on injured reserve. The Vipers enjoyed spirited practices this week following their biggest win of the season Saturday night over the Chilliwack Chiefs. They visit the Trail Smoke Eaters Saturday night. Rookie forward Craig Martin, a Trail product, visited Cornell University in New York last Sunday and didn’t return home until Wednesday night due to flight delays caused by Hurricane Sandy. Martin, a 17-year-old who produced 45 goals and 96 points with the Junior B Beaver Valley Nitehawks last year, still has flydowns remaining to Michigan Tech and Penn State.

Stars shade Ready-Mix 6-5 Morning Star Staff

The M&K-Ready Mix Demons bowed 6-5 to the host Lumby Stars in North Okanagan Atom Super League hockey action Saturday. Chris Bond, Kevin Morgan, Shaelyn Cecchini Rowan Bedard and Dawson Martian scored for the Demons, who erased a 5-2 deficit with some awesome goaltending by Tyler Hamilton. Hamilton was forced to make some acrobatic saves which included a left-toe save that came from high in the slot. Jordyn Morris had one assist. In Pee Wee Super League action, the Stevenson Mechanical Blues improved to 5-0 with a 4-2

win over the visiting Winfield #2 Bruins Sunday afternoon at Priest Valley Arena. Third-period goals from Braydie Allen-Webber (2g) and Reid Lawrence snapped a 2-2 tie. Zack Laranjo had the other goal for Stevenson Mechanical, who received a 20-save performance from Dylan Blazek. The Blues bounced the Salmar Classic Titans 4-2 Saturday at the Shaw Centre. Cody Webb snapped a 1-1 tie midway through the second and scored what proved to be the winner nine seconds into the third, converting a sweet pass from Lawrence.

Sports Flames bounce Bruins Continued from A24

Allan-Webber and Lawrence each had 1+1 for the Blues, who started Sam Knox in goal. Knox was solid in his half of play, as was Blazek for the final 30 minutes, each goalie giving up just one goal. Reece Hawthorne was superb in taking first star as the Bannister Chev Flames stopped the host Bruins 6-2 Saturday afternoon. Nick Mitchell (4), Jacob Barnett, with his first minor hockey snipe, and Callum Leong, led the Flames, who got three assists from Chase Batchelor Mitchell scored a deuce as the Flames toppled the Butcher Boys Titans Sunday at PV. Carly Southam, Leong and Carter Morris had singles in support of Hawthorne. Landen Harison (2), and Chris Aldrich countered for Butcher Boys. The Titans got two goals from Sean Howard in a 6-3 win over the North Okanagan Knights Saturday. Jacob Baycroft, Tyson Sampert, Talon Williams and Harison also scored. The Lumby Stars, sponsored by Terry’s Automotive and Kineshanko Logging Ltd., grounded the Salmon Arm Tiger Sharks 9-2 at Hucul Pond. Josh Litven scored four goals, with quick d-man Tanner Franje Gilbert recording two and singles coming from Drew Mackenzie, Morgan Holland and Trayton Phillips. Stars of the game were Emily Romailler, Payton Kineshanko and Holland. In Midget Super League play, the Vernon KT’s Blues shut out the Winfield Bruins 5-0 Saturday at Civic Arena. Kyle Clarke pocketed 2+1, while Austin Derkach, Rowan LewisHatherley and Cameron Sawdon added singles. Travis Webster and Austin Bosquet both had two assists. The Blues bounced Lumby 5-2 Sunday with goaltender Austin Goss terrific, stopping three breakaways in a three-minute span. Clark (3), Derkach and Liam Semeniuk handled the offence. Justin Mitchell pulled the hat trick as the Talon Benefits Hawks outlasted the host Salmon Arm Lakeside Printing 8-6. Adam Fenske, with 2+2,

Landon Munk with a deuce and Jeff Hiscoe completed the offence. D-men Bryton Stead and Max Mitchell each earned three assists. The Nedco Dudes brushed back the host Lumby Stars 4-3 Saturday with Dallas Zupp supplying 1+3 and singles coming from Taylor Hamilton Gee and d-man Kyle Evans, on a power play, top-shelf snipe. In Bantam play, the Corbett Office Supply Spartans battled to a 4-4 draw with the Scotiabank Lighting Saturday night at PV Arena. Nick Mann opened the Spartan scoring on a breakaway with a shot high to the glove side after a great pass from Jim Brodoway. Brett Lambert tied it for the Bolts nine minutes later and then Brodoway batted a puck out of the air into the net after a Reece Schroeder shot. Alex Laurila converted on a hard, low shot after a great rink-length rush by Billy Cawthorn who was the Spartan inspirational player of the game. Cam Mackenzie equalized for the Bolts late in the second and then Mann scored a carbon-copy of his first goal after a great pass from Paul Rogers. Lambert tied it with four minutes to go. Sam Eggert also scored for Scotiabank. The Lightning bowed 6-1 to the Interior Savings Flyers Sunday for their first loss of the season. The Flyers got great goaltending by both Garrett Adams and Joseph Tronson and excellent defensive play by Darnell Hauca, who also earned two unassisted goals. Adam Roemer (3) and Keefer Kaempf also scored. The visiting Flyers clipped the Salmon Arm Fix It Auto 5-4 Saturday with Roemer (3+1, Brendan Horsfield and Bradley handling the attack. The Five Star Awards Bulldogs bounced the Winfield Bruins 8-0 Saturday with captain Mac Gourdine and Seth Blundell each bagging 2+1. Brennan Seltzer counted 1+2, while Tyler Semeniuk, Nic Poirier and Tyler Riva also scored. On Sunday, the Bulldogs shaded the Salmon Arm Fix It Auto Silverblades with Blundell pulling the hat trick and Seltzer getting 2+2.

Cyber-bullying a concern amongst B.C. parents Morning Star Staff

About 23 per cent of B.C. teens have been vic-

tims of cyber-bullying, according to a new survey of parents.

The online poll of 504 B.C. adults by West6S Marketing found

widespread concern about cyber-bullying, with 89 per cent very or

somewhat concerned. Eight per cent of adults surveyed also said

NOVEMBE R 24

they’ve been cyber-bullied and that rose to 12 per cent among heavy

users of Facebook or Twitter. More mainstream use of social media means cyber-bullying is becoming more widespread and not just limited to online chat rooms, according to 6S Marketing president Chris Breikss. “Considering the speed of social media and its availability – through smart phones, tablets – harassment has become inescapable,” he said. “It turns into a roundthe-clock nightmare. The Internet’s immediacy gives bullies a perception of power and the sheer volume of these unmoderated interactions can have devastating consequences.” About 46 per cent of B.C. adults use Facebook daily – rising to 64 per cent of 18- to 34-year-olds – and levels are higher in households with teens. Sixteen per cent use Twitter daily (37 per cent in the 18-34 group.) Fifty-eight per cent of parents surveyed said they believed their teens were the victims of “traditional” bullying. Teen tanning bed ban in effect A provincial ban on teenagers using tanning beds is now in effect to reduce their future risk of skin cancer. Tanning salons that fail to post signs about the ban or who illegally let minors use tanning equipment without a prescription can now be fined $345 for each offence. The ban was promised by the provincial government in March and followed requests from the Union of B.C. Municipalities. Use of tanning beds by youth is now only allowed under medical prescription to treat conditions like psoriasis. Indoor tanning before age 35 raises the risk of developing melanoma by 75 per cent, according to the World Health Organization. Nearly 1,000 B.C. residents are diagnosed with melanoma each year and about 150 die of it.

There’s one month left for Lake Country residents to have their yard waste picked up. Bi-weekly fall yard waste pickup ends Nov. 30. That’s the last day for the curbside yard waste pickup program until collection resumes again March 1. “Collecting yard waste separately not only means it can all be composted, it also saves landfill space, cuts down on landfill traffic congestion, and offers residents a great soil enhancer in the form of GlenGrow they can buy for their own gardens come springtime,” said Rae Stewart, waste reduction facilitator for the Regional District of Central Okanagan. Simply place your yard waste directly into the cart with the green lid closed and wheel it out for pickup every other week (alternate weeks to your recycling pickup). To determine your yard waste collection week, refer to your Living Greener

Calendar, download the my-waste app, or visit regionaldistrict.com/ recycle. You’re reminded to put your yard waste out for collection by 7 a.m. on the morning of your

Here are ICBC’s tips to help you adjust to the time change: Keep your regular sleep/wake cycle in step with your every day social rhythm. Go to bed at the same time you normally would and benefit from that extra hour of sleep. Don’t assume you are more rested and alert on the road the mornings following the change as the time change can impact the quality of our sleep. Adjust your speed for the weather conditions and allow extra travel time so that you’re prepared especially for the darker, late afternoon commutes where there will be slower traffic flow, less visible pedestrians and cyclists and an even greater need to signal properly. Clean your vehicle’s headlights and check they are all working properly, especially your rear lights. Make sure you have enough windshield wiper fluid and that your wipers are in good condition.

As we set our clocks back an hour Saturday night for the end of daylight savings time, ICBC is asking drivers to take extra care. The biggest impacts can be felt on some of the key skills that affect the quality of our driving – poorer concentration, alertness behind the wheel and reaction time to potential hazards. “There is a 10 per cent increase in the average number of crashes in the Lower Mainland during the late afternoon commute in the two weeks following the end of DST compared to the two weeks prior to the change,” said John Vavrik, a psychologist with ICBC. “We see this crash rate increase slightly outside of the Lower Mainland, where road conditions can become more challenging earlier in the season.” While the fall time change means we have the chance to get an extra hour of sleep, according to an ICBC survey, 30 per cent of drivers overcompensate for that extra hour of sleep by staying up later and therefore losing any potential benefit of that opportunity. “We rationalize that extra hour – many of us think that since we’re going to get an additional hour of sleep we can stay awake longer or drive home later, but we actually end up feeling more tired and less alert,” said Vavrik. “Studies have also shown that the end of daylight savings time can also impact the quality of our sleep due to more nighttime restlessness and disrupt our circadian rhythms which can pose some real dangers on our roads,” said Vavrik. As daylight savings ends, B.C. drivers can also expect to deal with darker evening commutes in poor weather conditions with less visibility, which is why it’s important for us to adjust our speed to the road conditions.

Little new in renewal

ack then the advertising slogan was “Keep BC Strong.” Unveiled at Premier Christy Clark’s pre-election pep rally: “Together. Building BC.” This slight change hints at the big difference. Campbell led a front-running party to a third straight majority, while Clark is a struggling underdog pleading for unity to turn back an NDP tsunami. Hence “Free Enterprise Friday,” a discussion open to non-party members. Clark began with an upbeat speech urging party members to “reach out our arms, open the tent and be as big as we can possibly be.” So did they? Dashing between three concurrent sessions, I missed a fair amount of it, but there were some provocative suggestions to appeal to those inclined to support the resurgent B.C. Conservatives. An accountant spoke to a packed room about the growing unfunded liability of public sector pensions, most of which are still of the “defined benefit” variety. Based on bond interest rates that have since sunk to all-time lows, these government-guaranteed pensions are now a free ride for those lucky enough to have them, funded by the taxes of private sector workers who in many cases have no pension plan at all. There was talk of passing a law that all new public sector hires be restricted to a “defined contribution” plan where the employee and employer contribute equally and the pension is based on what those contributions yield. This would provoke the mother of all confrontations with the B.C. Federation of Labour, but there was no evidence yet that this is going beyond the talking stage. The resolutions continued the theme

of confronting the labour movement, ritual combat that seems to be an inescapable part of B.C. elections. Delegates passed two motions, one calling for public sector unions to disclose what they spend on salaries, political activities and lobbying, and another advocating a ban on unions spending compulsory dues on political campaigns. This is a pet project of Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad, whose constituency sponsored both motions. Rustad presented a private member’s bill last year to require detailed disclosure, but it was left to die on the order paper. Like all the policy resolutions debated at the convention, these

ideas are not binding on the government. Again, there is no actual change on the horizon. Delegates rejected another motion that would have made membership in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation optional. This would Tom Fletcher have been a declaration of war on B.C.’s most militant union, just as Clark and Education Minister Don McRae embark on a long-shot bid to end the decades of confrontation that have defined that relationship since teachers were relegated to the industrial union model of labour relations. There was a brief debate on a motion to scrap the carbon tax, sponsored by northern members who see it as unfairly punitive on those who endure

B.C. Views

cold weather and long highway drives for themselves and the goods they need to have trucked in. This was rejected too, after delegates were reminded that the tax now takes in more than $1 billion annually that is used to reduce business and personal income taxes. Scrapping it would amount to announcing across-the-board income tax hikes, contradicting 12 years of B.C. Liberal policy just before an election. The good news for Clark is that the 2012 convention was a highenergy, well-attended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.

RV’s top techs share tips at OC Morning Star Staff

Manufacturing experts from Elkhart, Indiana – known as the RV capital of the world – spent three days at Okanagan College recently providing the latest techniques to dozens of technicians from around the province. “Eighty per cent of the RVs are built in Elkhart, and so we have three factory reps who work at the forefront of RV appliances providing direct training to technicians here in B.C.,” said Jon Itterman, an instructor with the RV service technician program at the college. About 35 technicians from Prince George, Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan and the Kootenays were at the Kelowna campus to take part in the training sessions, organized by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association of B.C. “The partnership with Okanagan College provides a great venue for hands-on training session for these annual service seminars,” said Joan Jackson, executive director of the RVDA of B.C. Chantal Hershberger, who works for Atwood Mobile Products in Elkhart, Indiana, came to the college for the first time to help technicians with furnace repairs. “It makes a really big difference for technicians who are handling these units,” she said. “It means they’re able to diagnose the problems faster which helps the customer and it also helps us with our warranty costs.” Many of the technicians are graduates from

Okanagan College’s RV service technician program, with some having more than 20 years experience. The program provides entry level and apprenticeship training for the industry, offering two intakes per calendar year. The next session starts in February.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan will do maintenance work on fire hydrants in the Killiney Beach and Westshore water systems in November. “Customers on these two systems may experience minor shortterm water quality and pressure changes while this hydrant work is underway,” said Bruce Smith, communications co-ordinator. “Running the cold water tap will remove any discoloration.”

Students are a credit to their teacher

Retired A.L. Fortune teacher shares Hub space with former media arts students Kristin Froneman Morning Star Staff

Say what you want about social networking sites such as Facebook, but for one retired teacher, it has been a way for her to connect with her former students. As the former media arts instructor at Enderby’s A.L. Fortune Secondary School, Roxi Sim Hermsen says she loved encouraging the talents already inherited by her students, and cross connecting them through her teaching. “We would do stuff like making videos of dancers in the class and combining our skills,” she said. “As a teacher, I felt it was not what I teach, but about planting the seeds and giving encouragement.” A well known visual artist, Hermsen has continued to tout the talents of her students –– some of whom have gone on to pursue artistic fields. One of them, Rick Dugdale, is now a Hollywood producer, and two others, Theresa Simpson and

of many media –– musicians, dancers, actors –– and puts them all under one roof. This art show is the epitome of what The Hub is all about: art, music, dance, drama, and creating community through the arts.” Three of the paintings Hermsen is showing are of Christian, who studied modern dance at Grant McEwan University in Edmonton after graduating high school. “At school I walked by a studio where I saw belly dancers practising. I called home that night and told my parents I wanted to take belly dance classes,” she said. After returning to her hometown, Christian started teaching creative movement as well as belly dance at her own studio in Enderby. She returned to teaching modern dance two years ago and is now an instructor at the Armstrong Dance Academy, run by Susan Bensmiller. In addition to the art and dance performance, Hermsen’s son, Bram, a photographer and videograKristin Froneman /morninG star pher who runs Hole in the Wall Artists Roxi Sim Hermsen, left, and Theresa Simpson, far right, get ready for their art exhibition opening Saturday at Productions, will be showing his latThe Hub Arts Collective, with Hub artist Ryan Robson, sitting left, Hub owner Matt Brown, and dancer Kristi Christian. est project, a music video for Salmon Arm musician Aimee Laws, at the Kristi Christian, are about to join dents’ talents,” said Christian, who said Hermsen, adding what she has opening. her for an event at Vernon’s The is a belly dancer and will perform at done with her students is what The “He’s also an A.L.

Vertigo hosts event that can’t be duplicated

Morning Star Staff

Gallery Vertigo celebrates its 10th year as a non-profit, artist-run gallery with its annual Almost Famous Art Exhibition and Auction on Saturday. With this year’s theme “Gin and Sin,” the exhibition will feature reproductions of works by artists working from 1900-1955. Established in 2002, the gallery and artists will also be celebrating all the successes of the last 10 years, as well as anticipating challenges inherent in any non-profit, community-run organization. “The North Okanagan has an incredibly vibrant and diverse arts community, and an incredibly gener-

ous one,” said Vertigo director and visual artist Heidi Maddess. “There are just so many arts-related things to support in our area – it’s an embarrassment of riches, talent-wise, and sometimes a bit of a struggle, funding-wise.” Gallery Vertigo grew out of a small group of local artists who began to meet in local coffee shops, restaurants and pubs in the late-1990s. The group quickly grew in size and in December, 2000, held a group exhibition in a vacant storefront in Vernon’s downtown district. Encouraged by the overwhelming response from both local artists and the public, the association, which had grown to about 40 artists at the

time, incorporated as North Okanagan Artists Alternative, a registered nonprofit society in February of 2001. In the spring of 2002, a core group of artists rented the second story of the historic Winnipeg Union Bank building on the corner of 30th Avenue and 31st Street, and renovated it at their own expense to launch Gallery Vertigo, the North Okanagan’s first and only artist-run gallery. It houses studios for working artists, two exhibition spaces, and the society is more than 160 members strong. The gallery also hosts a weekly drop-in art Photo submitted program for youth called Smarties, Coldstream artist Barbara Rety, with her piece inspired by Pablo every Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. Picasso’s 1911 oil on canvas, Girl with Red Beret, participated in a

It’s time to hit the seven seas for the start of the 2012-13 Kids Series at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. The series, which includes four familyfriendly productions including theatre, music and dance, starts Sunday with Aladdin: The Secret Voyage. Produced by Victoria’s Story Theatre Company, don’t expect a blue genie with the voice of Robin Williams to pop out of a magic lamp, a monkey or even Jasmine to show up, as this theatrical production provides a new take on the story of Aladdin in a blending of tales from the Arabian Nights. Yes, there’s a genie, and a magic carpet, but there’s also an enchanted island inhabited by a powerful witch of the seas, and a sea voyage –– all part of this magical retelling of these

great stories.   Through a combination of puppetry, acting and storytelling, Aladdin: the Secret Voyage tells the story of Aladdin’s journey to recover the magic lamp, his search to find his missing father, and their adventure to free themselves from a curse. “It’s a new adventure for Aladdin,” said performer Erin Michell. “Nobody’s ever seen it before.” Founded in 1981 by Victoria actor Jim Leard, who appears in Aladdin (played by Izad Etemadi), as Sinbad the Sailor and other roles, Story Theatre Company has toured across North America sharing its unique fusion of storytelling, music and games in performances that are both entertaining and educational. “I love getting to perform for kids,” said Michell, “We get to make them laugh.”

Gallery celebrates 10 with Almost Famous Continued from page B1

“The society and the gallery really are run on the energy, passion and generosity of our members and volunteers, many of whom are not only working artists, but who have one or more other jobs, families, and are involved in a number of community activities,” said Maddess. “It’s a labour of love for all of us, but well worth it.” Vertigo artists hope that anyone interested in art will come out and celebrate with them on Saturday night. “Not only will there be great works of art to be auctioned, it will just be a really fun atmosphere,” said Maddess, adding the evening will include martini cocktails, and music by 1950s and ‘60s crooners. All patrons are also encouraged to come dressed in their finest garb of the era. (Think TV show Mad Men for some inspiration.) “You don’t need to dress up to come but, by all means, we encourage creativity,” said Maddess. Almost Famous takes place Saturday at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the Bean Scene and Gallery Vertigo, which is located upstairs at #1-3001 31st St. For more information, call 250-503-2297.

She nails the street-girl-with-smarts vibe dead on in the punky Slut Like You – another naughty declaration with easy appeal. Because P!nk hammers out hooks relentlessly, she seems to be a musical machine.  This album brings her cleverness and solidity into focus. The songs rock and have joy. Last of all, she brings on the decibels. She ain’t coy and the cussing’s fun. Long live P!nk’s potty mouth!

UBC Okanagan opens new theatre University Theatre’s debut performance gets the royal treatment Morning Star Staff

The first dedicated live-theatre space at UBC’s Okanagan North Kelowna campus will be inaugurated by Henry VIII and his coterie of ex-wives. Staged at the newly crowned University Theatre, Til Death Do We Part is a critically acclaimed comedy billed as “Six Queens. Six Love Stories. Six Deaths.

One Actress!” Presented by the Vancouver troupe Monster Theatre, the play, which takes the stage Saturday, marks the venue’s debut, followed by a wine-andcheese reception. A second performance is set for Sunday. The refurbished and renamed University Theatre seats up to 200 people and is housed in the former lecture theatre in the administration building, adjacent to the bus stop. Til Death Do We Part, written and directed by Ryan Gladstone, was a Pick of the Fringe at the 2012 Vancouver Fringe Festival. The one-woman comedy

DON’T GET STUCK!

stars Tara Travis in a virtuosic performance. The play follows King Henry VIII’s motley mix of exes, who one-by-one file into a purgatory of sorts, much to the dismay of each previous wife. It culminates in a heated catfight, visited by the King of England. The inaugural event, sponsored by UBC Okanagan’s faculty of creative and critical studies, will be followed by regular programming and weekly events at University Theatre. Tickets for the play are $10 for students, $20 for non-students. For advance tickets, email melissa.mchugh@ubc.ca or call 250-807-9648.

Arts.” That applies to Simpson, who was a student of Hermsen’s at A.L. Fortune in the ‘80s and now works in finance at the Enderby Credit Union. Simpson has been self-taught as an artist since high school and is holding her very first public exhibition, although she has sold a number of her paintings and has shown them at her workplace. “We connected on Facebook, where she posted her paintings. I liked what I saw and invited her to join me in the show at The Hub,” said Hermsen, who

describes her style and subject matter as different from Simpson’s, but also similar in that they make bold, colourful and textured paintings using metallic paints. “Our styles are very different and the contrast will provide for an interesting show. We both love vivid colour and lots of texture, but use it in different ways. I  love detail. Theresa is more of a minimalist,” said Hermsen. Simpson works with gels and the metallic paints to bring out a three dimensional-like texture in her work. “I go out on day trips and shoot the textures of what I see. I never draw anything first,”

said Simpson, who will also show some of her photos at The Hub exhibition. “I paint from an emotional standpoint. It’s healing to work things out on the canvas.” Hermsen, whose paintings have appeared in exhibitions all over B.C. and the Caribbean as well as in her own specialized deck of tarot cards, is showing some of her recent work as well as some of her florals. Like Simpson, she has been dabbling in texture using metallized leaf paints in gold, silver and multi-coloured hues as well as primary colours made from food colouring.

Hermsen will be giving a workshop on her metalized style of painting at The Hub each Sunday in November. Those who sign up to take the workshop will paint six greeting cards and a small painting. Materials will be provided. Hermsen is also offering other workshops at The Hub, including one on photographing your arts portfolio and also making masking tape maché frames. Saturday’s Texturize opening takes place at The Hub, 2906-30th Ave. next to the Town Cinema, at 7 p.m. For more information, contact The Hub at (778) 475-6244 or visit www.thehubartscollective.com.

A

s horror movies based on video games go, the original Silent Hill was a pretty good film. It had all the right parts in the right places: creepy locations, a dark back story and inventive, otherworldly creatures Taylor & Howe to torment the main characters. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D promises to be a return to the damned town of Silent Hill with our heroine having turned 18, to finally put this evil baby to bed, as it were. Will she appease the evil? Can she send the demons back to hell? Is it scary? We say, “It’s better than Paranormal Activity 4 and Resident Evil: Retribution, added together.” TAYLOR: You can take the girl out of Silent Hill but you can’t take Silent Hill out of the girl. HOWE: After enjoying the first Silent Hill (I know, a lot of people didn’t) I was really looking forward to Revelation. Now having witnessed it, I wish they had left it where it belongs; as a game on the consoles. Don’t get me wrong the film is beautiful; just what you would expect a game would look like on the big screen. It’s just the game-to-screen cross-

over doesn’t work this time. TAYLOR: I agree, the production design, the sets and special effects were excellent and Revelation contained some effective 3D, which I enjoyed. However, the script was lacking both in plot and especially dialogue. Part of the problem might also have been the acting, Sean Bean, who’s usually okay, wasn’t. Malcolm McDowell, who is usually awesome, was merely okay. I’d never heard of the two kids portraying the main characters, Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington. HOWE: I didn’t even realize Carrie-Anne Moss was in it until the credits came up.

Her makeup was that good. The story was still very similar to the original. They still had the crazy cult that think theirs is the truth and everyone else shall perish, the beautiful yet deadly nurses as well as Alessa the young witch. TAYLOR: The film is polished, even more so than the original. It’s very pretty. I have no problem with the video game plot device of setting up goals and achieving them. I blame the writing as, although the actors in the film are adequate, better dialogue would have made me care more. But for what it is, a horror movie of a spooky video game, it deserves to be given some slack.

HOWE: I cut it some slack the moment I sat down, hoping it didn’t have some terrible acting in it like the last time out. The female police officer in Silent Hill was atrocious, and just when I thought we had made it safely through this one, they threw in a truck driver right at the end who made the copper look like a seasoned actor. I’ve seen better acting at elementary school plays. –– Taylor gives Silent Hill: Revelation 2.5 stitched up faces out 5. –– Howe gives it 2 spider mannequins out of 5. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is currently showing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Awards, while tasting local wines, paired with delicious delicacies and listening to local artists perform. The Okanagan Arts Awards serve to underline the importance of the arts in the community, and to recognize individuals and groups for their significant contributions and for their exceptional support of arts and culture, said Lange. “The Okanagan Arts

Awards are an integral part of the arts community in the Thompson Okanagan and is becoming a province-wide event,” she said. “The Thompson-Okanagan regions have some of the most talented individuals that deserve recognition for their continued contributions to the arts.”  For more information on the awards or to nominate an artist or group, visit www.artsco. ca.

Fulton teacher earns national honour Katherine MortiMer

Morning Star Staff

A Vernon teacher has been recognized by Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his dedication and skill in the classroom. Fulton teacher Terry Downton has received a 2012 Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence, Certificate of Achievement. “It’s a tremendous honour,” said Downton, department head for business education and career education, and a teacher at Fulton for 15 years. “This is just wonderful — it’s my Stanley Cup.” The awards program honours outstanding teachers who instil in their students a love of learning, encourage excellence and help young Canadians gain the knowledge and skills to excel in the 21st century. “For you, teaching is more than a profession, it is a passion that you pass on to young people each and every day,” said Harper, in his letter to Downton. Award applicants were asked to share what they do with students in the classroom and how they integrate technology into their classroom routine. Collaborating with resource room teacher Erin Hobkirk and Learn Now B.C., Downton implemented a digital media literacy unit called My World to all Grade 9 students, where they participate in an online simulation, making ethical decisions around online bullying, cyber fraud and online safety. “I also work closely with (business ed teacher) Jason Anderson, who is wonderful to work with and a computer genius.” Downton has a long list of accomplishments at the school, from fixing broken strings on the school’s badminton racquets at no charge, to taking his accounting students to Vancouver to participate in Junior Achievement’s Titan Business Challenge. In addition to his work in the classroom, Downton has been graduation transition coordinator for a number of years, where he guides Grade 12 students in completing a grad transition plan, where they research different careers, reflect on positive experiences and set goals for the future. “After marking each of the 175 Graduation Transition Plans, I invite students to an exit interview, where they are asked to articulate their future plans to a teacher and a member of the community,” he said. “The confidence that students show is amazing and teachers comment how awesome it is to see the fruits of their labours. It is truly a day of celebration.” Other activities include a Dragon’s Den business competition, where Downton leads his Planning 10 classes in writing a business plan and submitting it to a local business competition “This is an excellent experience for our students, and college business students are invited into our classes to act as mentors as students plan their business ventures.” In his accounting courses, Downton strives to make the class relevant and applicable to students’ everyday lives. “It’s not just read the text, we’re trying to be innovative in accounting. We do a huge amount of computerized accounting, so we’re making it relevant.” The president of the Vernon Business Education Teachers’ Association, Downton organizes several meetings a year where teachers get together to share what is happening in their school and how they can improve what they do.

Fulton secondary teacher Terry Downton helps Grade 9 students Kate Coutlee (left) and Jenna Baron-Purcell with their video editing. “We bring local business teachers together and that collaboration is super powerful.” He has been curriculum coordinator for the B.C. Business Education Association for four years and was recently elected president of this organization. As well, during lunch time he coordinates the school store, which runs three ventures: a healthy food venture for students trying to offer healthy food choices to their peers; clothing, where the group buys and sells clothing with the school’s colours and logos, creating school spirit at the same time; Picture This, where students create displays of sports teams so that each player in the school has a memento of their experience on the school club or team. “I love being in the classroom, when students see the relevance in what they’re doing, there’s that aha moment that we look for,” he said. “They need to be well-rounded and we want them to have financial literacy skills, so it’s putting the resources together in a meaningful way.” The irony of winning a teaching award is not lost on Downton, whose last day in the classroom is Nov. 8, after which he leaves for a new job in Fort McMurray, Alta., with Suncor Energy. Passionate about teaching, Downton said the last school year was a difficult one. The government’s response to the province-wide teachers’ job action provided the catalyst for switching careers. “I was absolutely furious with what happened last year, and the way teachers have been treated recently bothered me to the core. “I want teachers to be recognized, and I don’t think our society does a great job of recognizing what teachers do on a daily basis with the kids. Last year was tough.” Armed with his MBA as well as his business education

experience, Downton had little difficulty finding work outside his current profession. “I am the lowest paid MBA in Canada, and I now get to use my skills, so when I saw a posting for a learning coordinator at Suncor, I jumped at the chance to do this as it’s both professional development and job training, so this is a perfect combination.” Taking a leave of absence from the district in case the new gig doesn’t work out, Downton leaves his current profession with mixed feelings. “I have one of the best jobs at Fulton and Malcolm (Reid, school principal) is amazing, but this was just a huge opportunity to do something different.” Reid said the school will not be the same without Downton, and that given his passion, commitment, and specific skill set he will be hard to replace. “The PM award is a great acknowledgement of the hard work Terry has put into his courses and profession over many years,” said Reid. “Terry has been on the cutting edge of business ed curriculum and this award recognizes this passion and commitment.” In his letter of reference to the award committee, Reid said Downton has always demonstrated a passion to explore the full uses of technology and as such is a technology leader on staff. “Terry’s true passion is entrepreneurship as he imbeds these concepts in every course he teaches,” said Reid. “Terry is also our grad transitions lead teacher, a non enrolling position responsible for coordinating every Grade 12 student to complete their Grad Transitions Plan and exit interview. This is an extremely large undertaking that requires excellent mentoring for every Grade 12 student, as well as strong leadership over our entire staff.”

Boyfriend needs attention

ear Annie: I’m dating a guy who works out of town and is home every four weeks. “Jake” calls and texts often and says he misses me all the time. Here’s what bothers me: Jake always asks me how I feel about him. He says, “Do you even like me?” I think it’s because I don’t drop everything when he calls like the other women he has dated. I recently found out via Facebook that Jake went on a cruise with a woman he used to live with. She has been posting pictures of the cruise and saying how much she loves Jake. There is nothing about the cruise posted on Jake’s page. I told him about her comments. He replied that he didn’t know anything about it, and she was obviously just thanking all of the people on the cruise for their love and support. But he added that she’s a wonderful woman and they’d be in a relationship if she lived closer. I said he is being unfair to both of us, but he claims he’s not married and will continue

to call me until I tell him to stop. Since then, he’s phoned a couple of times, and I refuse to take his calls. Is this a case of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? — Daisy Mae Dear Daisy: It sounds like it, although as a single man, he can date as many women as he likes until he makes a commitment. You thought he had made one to you, but he believed otherwise. It’s possible he was attracted to you because you didn’t fawn all over him. But that results in a stable relationship only in the movies. In real life, such men thrive on the attention, and since they rarely get enough of it from one partner, they look for it in many others. Right now, he thinks you’ll cave. If you want him to stop

calling, you will have to tell him point blank. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of 10 siblings. Every summer, we share a lake house for a wonderful family reunion that extends over several days. Every year, my older brother invites an obnoxious friend to join us for the last evening’s family grill. How can I convince him that just because we are part owners doesn’t mean we can invite unwanted guests? He says it is his home and he can invite whomever he wishes. I say if he is not cooking the meal, it is not proper. The chef dislikes this guy as much as I do. Who is right? — The Baby of the Family Dear Baby: As joint owners, you should each be able to invite

guests. However, since you are all staying in the house together, it is both considerate and proper to first ask the other residents whether they object to additional company. So while your brother can invite his friend when he uses the lake house on his own, he should ask the rest of you about inviting him when you are sharing the house and the meals. Dear Annie: I am concerned about your response to “Trying” which said it was OK to tell Mom that some of the grandchildren are hurt because they aren’t receiving as much gift money as others. I think this encourages a sense of entitlement. Instead of trying to correct Mom’s behavior, I would encourage “Trying” to

stop comparing gifts and value Mom’s intention to add joy to the lives of all of her family members. — Mike in Schenectady, N.Y. Dear Mike: We disagree. The only entitlement it encourages is that Grandma should treat her grandchildren equally. If all the kids received a lesser gift, it would be fair, and the kids wouldn’t get the impression that Grandma loves some of them more than others.

Flu vaccine suspension lifted

Cut for CanCer

Black Press

Seasonal influenza clinics are proceeding in B.C. after use of one of the vaccines was briefly suspended for further testing. Health Canada announced Wednesday that Novartis-made vaccines have been approved for use in Canada and Europe after an investigation of one batch in Europe. B.C. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said the suspension was precautionary and related to effectiveness, and there is no safety concern. There are dedicated flu vaccination clinics at pub-

lic health units, family doctors and pharmacists. To find the nearest clinic, use the flu clinic locator at www.immunizebc.ca or call Healthlink BC at 8-1-1. The annual influenza vaccination gives priority to higher-risk patients such as seniors and those with chronic diseases, who receive the vaccine at no charge. Seasonal influenza is a severe respiratory illness that is responsible for hundreds of deaths in B.C. each year. Because influenza is spread through sneezing, coughing and contact with contaminated surfaces, B.C. regulations have been changed to require all employees in health to get the shot or wear a mask.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder HOW DO YOU HANDLE THAT SPADE SUIT? John Steinbeck said: “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” You have become the declarer. It is good to have some idea of how you will play the contract. Count your winners and losers, get another idea of how lucky you need to be, and proceed. In this deal, you have two problems. How do you play to win a dozen tricks in six spades, and how do you play to win a baker’s dozen in seven spades? West leads the heart queen. The bidding had a modern theme. Four hearts was a Texas transfer. North

then used Roman Key Card Blackwood, the five-heart reply showing two aces and denying the spade queen. North signed off in six spades. And, yes, perhaps North should have bid six no-trump. There might have been a dozen winners, two spades and 10 others, if South had a five-card minor. Then a bad spade break would not have been fatal. In seven spades, you must play the trump suit without loss. That requires finding West with Q-J or Q-J-x in spades. Immediately lead a trump and, unless West plays an honor, call for dummy’s nine. Your chance of success is just under 14 percent. In six spades, though, you can afford one spade loser. The right idea is to

cash dummy’s ace, return to your hand in another suit, and lead your second trump, covering West’s card as cheaply as possible. Your chances have risen to nearly 88 percent. Note finally that West should not split his spade honors -- he should not help declarer.

Earn extra money the whole year through! Deliver the North Okanagan’s best read newspaper to the homes in your neighbourhood. Students & adults both welcome! Call today for a list of available routes or to put your name on file for your area.

Melanie Lynne Christien (nee French)

Our beautiful mother and grandmother Melanie passed away unexpectedly on October 27th, 2012 at the young age of 70 years. She will be deeply missed by her daughter, Michelle Vest (Ralph Talbot); two sons, Doug Christien and Joel Christien; her adoring grandchildren, Scott Vest (Laura Ramsey), Hannah Vest (Shawn Ellis) – parents of her beautiful baby great-grandson, Dominic, and Janelle and Josee Christien, all of whom Mom loved dearly. Melanie will also be greatly missed by her extended family, Jeff and Laurie Vest and little Ryan, Jim and Lesley Jung; her brother, Laurie French and his family; her sister, Linda Hatten and her family; all her many friends but most of all by her life-long friends, Vanneau Neesham, Marjene Postil and Bonnie Goble. Mom was preceded in death by her parents, Doug and Kitty French (nee Hamilton). Mom loved the outdoors and there were many happy days spent going for long walks, planning and going on adventurous hiking trips with friends, puttering in her yard on the lake or enjoying morning coffee watching her birds at the feeder while doing her crossword puzzles. She also had a great passion for many other interests through her life. Mom belonged to the Outdoors Club, the Hiking Club, The Allen Brookes Nature Society, The Powerhouse Theatre, The Film Society or trundling off to help with banding hummingbirds, teaching children to knit and enjoying many community concerts and other events through the years, or just lending a helping hand to her friends when needed and always with a smile. Mom loved to share her house on the lake with her family and friends. We all enjoyed many happy times and delicious dinners she cooked for all of us through the years. Mom was born and raised in Vernon and worked for the Vernon Health Unit for 35 years. She loved every minute of her job and the people she worked with and interacted with on a daily basis. Mom will be missed for her gentle manner and her kind and loving spirit to all living things. Cremation preceded a Celebration Of Melanie’s Life which will be held at Trinity United Church on Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 at 2:30 P.M. with Reverend Bob Thompson officiating. One of Mom’s greatest concerns was for the loss of our Wetlands and the impact it would have on our clean water supply. As an expression of sympathy, our family would like you to make a donation in memory of Melanie Christien to the Wetlands Stewardship Partnership at info@bcwetlands.ca or to the BC Nature (Federation of BC Naturalists), c/o Parks Heritage Centre, 1620 Mount Seymour Road, North Vancouver, B.C. V7G 2R9. Funeral arrangements have been made with BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605-27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5 250-542-1187

Alan lived and worked on the ranch in Fairy Hill, Saskatchewan until 1965. While living in Vernon, he worked on the Mica Dam project, BX Ranch and Camp Hurlburt. Farewell to a gentle, caring father who saw many changes during his lifespan of 97 years. The Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Trinity United Church with Rev. Bob Thompson of¿ciating. Arrangements have been entrusted to: PLEASANT VALLEY FUNERAL HOME (250) 542-4333 Condolences may be offered at pleasantvalleyfh.com
